Semi-truck strikes hydrant on Main Street


A torrent of water could be seen jetting skyward for much of midday Friday on North Main Street in Roswell, between Wilshire Boulevard and Country Club Road. City of Roswell officials said the spectacle, which slowed traffic for a time and caused water to gather in nearby parking lots, was the result of a semi-truck striking a fire hydrant. The overturned hydrant can be seen in the photo above. Roswell water maintenance crews were dispatched to repair the damage and stop the flow, which took several hours. While repairs were underway some businesses near the scene were without water, but neighborhoods were not expected to be impacted. Northbound Main Street traffic near the accident was reduced to one lane for a time. According to city officials, the driver of the truck that struck the hydrant left the scene but was later located, and charges are pending. (Daily Record Photo)

Hazel Savage


Have you ever known anyone who never met a stranger and made you feel right at home when you met her?  A lady that raised 5 boys and still had hair when she passed away! That person might have been Hazel Iola Miller Savage.  She was born on May 15, 1933, in Plains, Texas, to Jesse James Miller and Willa Mae “Chumley” Miller who have preceded her in death.  She married Kenneth R Savage Sr., November 1, 1951, in Roswell, NM. He preceded her in death in 2010. She is joining her sisters: Lavern Peters, Jessie Mae Hastings; brother, Leon Miller; son, James A. Savage; and granddaughter, Kelle Savage with our Lord Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her loving sons: Kenneth R Savage Jr. and wife, Afafe (“off-off”) from Benton, AR, Steven Savage and Mary Miller of Roswell, NM, Dennis Savage and wife, Jan of Artesia, NM, David Savage and wife, Pam of Durant, OK and Megan Savage, wife of the late James A. Savage of Roswell, NM.
She is survived by her brothers: William (Sam) Miller of Alamogordo, NM, James Miller and wife, Ellonia of Arlington, TX, Robert Miller and wife, Kathleen of Phoenix, AZ; sister, Darlene Wyche of Roswell, NM; along with numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Hazel was full of stories of their travels around the world and our great country.  She had lived in New Hampshire, Tennessee, and Casa Blanca, Morocco, North Africa, to mention a few.  She was on many bowling leagues and traveled to tournaments across the country.  She was a 7- time President of the Benevolent Patriotic Order of Does, she belonged to the Veterans of Foreign Wars and was a past member of the Berrendo Cowbelles.  She always wanted to help and worked hard in whatever she did.  She helped serve a million enchiladas for the Doe’s and went to many Grand Lodge Conventions.  She definitely had a servant’s heart.
Hazel also had a love for animals; her latest and best friend was Lady Bug who preceded her in death as well.  She had goats, monkeys, chickens and various other animals in her lifetime but no snakes.  She and Darlene were cat ranchers as they were trying to end cat hunger in their neighborhood.  She and Darlene loved to watch RFD (Rural Farm TV) channel on Saturday nights, especially Larry’s Country Diner.  Her last road trip was to Branson, MO, to see a live show last fall.
She lived a full life and left her imprint and legacy on those she touched.  She will be greatly missed but we will see her on the other side.
A Memorial Service will be held at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home on Saturday, June 23, 2018, 1:00 PM. Celebrate Hazel’s life by visiting www.andersonbethany.com to offer a memory or expression of sympathy for her family.
Hazel’s tribute was beautifully written in her honor by her family.
