Fewer than 10 percent of the farms in the Mesilla Valley are reaching their full potential yield due to water inefficiency, said Zohrab Samani, Foreman Professor of water resources at New Mexico State University.
Ryan Trujillo and Kaylee Chavez grew up together battling against each other on a backyard basketball hoop, and those countless hours spent with one another certainly paid off by the end of their high school careers. Taking part in watching the Española Valley High School boys or girls basketball teams this season would almost guarantee two things on any given night: seniors Trujillo and Chavez lighting up the scoring column and taking control of the game while leading their teams.
