Cell Phones Banned in District Court
(Deming) – Cellular phones and other electronic devices capable of recording audio or video are being banned from district court.
An administrative order signed last week by Sixth Judicial District Chief Judge J.C. Robinson states that cameras, cell phones, tablets, laptops, and other recording-capable electronic devices are no longer allowed in the courthouse without special permission from the court.
Anyone entering the court building for any purpose is advised to leave their cell phone in their vehicle or with court security officers.
The policy does not apply to attorneys having business with the court.
The administrative order states that prospective jurors may keep their cell phones with them provided the phones are turned off – not just on silent or vibrate – so they can turn the device on and contact employers and family members should they be selected to serve on a jury.
The order also states that anyone with a cell phone must still comply with the prohibition against recording proceedings unless authorized by the court in writing, as specified in NM Supreme Court Rule 23-107.
DAGSHIP Rescue Opening May 6th
(Deming) – Mark your calendars: Luna County's first no-kill animal shelter, DAGSHIP Rescue, is opening its doors to the public next Saturday, May 6th.
DAGSHIP Rescue is part of Deming Animal Guardians, a local charity that has been helping make spay and neuter surgery more affordable for low-income pet owners for more than 25 years.
Organizers say DAGSHIP Rescue, a no-kill shelter, is the next step in helping people and animals of Luna County.
The shelter has been made possible through donations from the public, a grant from Maddie's Fund, and significant donations of labor and money from businesses including Surface Carpet and Tile, DEPCOM Solar, Southwest Heating and Air, Chewy, Tamara Hurt, CPA, Hofacket Law, GB Electric, Deming Sand and Gravel, and Quarrel Surveying.
The public is invited to join the celebration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. next Saturday, May 6th, at Sunshine Grooming, 1755 Domingo SW, where DAGSHIP Rescue is located.
Attendees will be able to tour the facilities, view items for sale and meet the people who helped make a no-kill shelter a reality in Luna County.
