Top Cancer fund raiser, and top of Milken Best City list
Posted Oct 20th, 2010

Las Cruces is always coming up rosy.  With another year in the books, NMSU is again number one in fund raising for breast cancer research with the "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" campaign. In-fact, the biggest winner of October 9, 2010 college football game between the University of New Mexico Lobos and the New Mexico State University Aggies was cancer research.

It didn't play a down in the game, didn't kick a field goal, make a tackle or score a touchdown. But cancer research was the clear victor, netting $506,939 in the fourth annual NMSU Aggies Are Tough Enough To Wear Pink campaign.

The contributions collected are 5.9 percent more than the $476,573 raised last year, which made Las Cruces the top community in the world for raising money for the Tough Enough To Wear Pink campaign.  By-the-way Aggies beat the Lobos 16 -14 "GO AGGIES!!!"

In other local news, the economy may not be great, but compared to other parts of the country the Las Cruces area has fared well. For the second straight year, the Las Cruces area has been placed in the top 10 of the Milken Institute's 2010 Best-Performing Cities list.  Las Cruces is ranked No. 8 this year on the Smallest Metros list. Last year the city was No. 9. The Milken Institute reports that, "Researchers found that metros whose economies are heavy on service industries such as health care and on large government employers like military bases have been shielded from the job losses suffered by cities more closely tied to the housing and financial sectors."

Fargo N.D. topped the list. Farmington was ranked No. 106 and Santa Fe was 110. In the Largest Metro list, El Paso was ranked No. 9 and Albuquerque was ranked 64th.

Entry priced lots are disappearing fast, and when they're gone, well you know.  We do still have some fantastic lots available, but every week or so we have fewer.   I would like to thank Brook Stockberger for the story regarding "2010 Best Performing Cities list", and Steve Ramirez for the story on the "Tough Enough To Wear Pink campaign" two great writers from the Las Cruces Sun News.
