An in-depth  community profile of Taos and the Enchanted Circle features the various efforts being made to build a balanced economy.  The articles feature how leaders in the various communities are working together to ensure a more diversified economy for the citizens of Taos and surrounding areas with respect to the traditional history and culture of the area.

Upon being recognized as a mover and shaker in Taos, Judith says, "I'm honored to be considered an active and dedicated leader in Taos County.  This speaks to the impact on the county of both La Plaza Telecommunity and information technology.  Taos County residents are using the Internet for communication, e-commerce, research and are benefiting from the global interaction with the technology.  I'm delighted to be involved in this new frontier in our multi-cultural community.
