    I ask again……What is the nick name of Roswell, NM? Yes, of course we all know it is Alien Town. However, another one may be worn as a tattoo or spray painted on your building or other places. Any takers? Kk then I must reveal…It is CTR which means Crazy Town Roswell. Roswell is over populated with the criminal element who laugh with glee at the name. Why not take some of the Water Slush Fund and use it to protect the fine and upstanding citizens of Roswell, NM?
