Wilmeth and Wood to Appear on NewsNM

The terrible news of Hidalgo County rancher Larry Link's passing yesterday reached the News New Mexico desk just as we were looking at the guest list for today's show. Rancher Steve Wilmeth and Retired Border Patrol chief Gene Wood will appear on the show this morning. Both men will speak at length on the impact of a "wilderness" designation proposal made by New Mexico Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall. While the death of rancher Larry Link is still under investigation, Wilmeth and Wood will be speaking from their own personal experiences about the dangerous situations ranchers and U.S. Border Patrol agents are facing in the southern portion of the state. They will join us in the 8:00 o'clock hour.
