Val Kimer knows how to annoy his neighbors – according to several reports, Kilmer, who lives in a rural community 25 miles east of Santa Fe,  wants to rent out a few guest homes on his property, which would cut locals off from fishing holes which are nearby the Pecos River. He also reportedly made some ethnically insulting comments in several magazine interviews.

Kilmer’s plan to rent out guest homes has now been put on hold because of this, and will not be considered until he explains his comments. The San Migel County Commission has scheduled a special hearing which he is expected to attend on June the 23rd.

He made a statement to a newspaper in which he said that he was upset by the allegations, and that he always tried to support his community and the local wildlife:

“It’s very upsetting for my friends, I’m not worried at all about the reaction because I just see it as an opportunity to bring people together. No one would make a false statement like this statement of racism if they knew what we were doing.”
