LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The chancellor of New Mexico State University got so tired of looking at weeds on campus he decided to remove them himself.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports university's grounds crew took Chancellor Garrey Carruthers on his offer this week to take out a tractor and a disk to cut some weeds. He told the university's grounds crew that if they didn't have time to cut those weeds he'd do the job.

University spokeswoman Justin Bannister says Carruthers hopped into a John Deere tractor and spent almost an hour cutting weeds in the field to the west of the Las Cruces Convention Center.

The former New Mexico governor tweeted he was having "great fun" and could "do this all day.”

His family owns a farm in northwest New Mexico.
