The mall treatment
I have an idea for our new hospital.
Buy the Durango Mall for a new facility. Relocate the existing
stores downtown into all those vacant storefronts or to the
new strip malls popping up on Florida Road. The old K-Mart could
be the medical/surgery area. Penny’s would be fine for
the ER and same day care area. The middle would make a great
place for doctors’ offices. The mall offers plenty of
parking, is centrally located and half empty. No Utes to deal
This is an idea that deserves careful consideration.
Shouldn't we all be conserving?
For those of us that do conserve water, it’s frustrating
to drive Highway 550 between the New Mexico border and Durango
and see fields being watered in the middle of the day. By the
same token, downtown Durango people are watering between noon
At a time when Bayfield and Ignacio are considering cutting
off all outdoor watering (nonagricultural), shouldn’t
we all be conserving? My lawn is brown.
