The first few issues Randy did everything. He sold ads, built ads, gathered event information, wrote articles, laid out the paper by cutting and pasting, delivered it to the printer and the next day went out and distributed it. Those issues were 16 pages, had a hand- ful of advertisers and listed around 100 events. The 10,000 copies were delivered mostly in West El Paso. Today the Scene averages 60 pages, with over 100 advertisers, every month lists 600-800 events and the 41,000 copies are distributed from Las Cruces to Horizon City. While advances in technology has made publishing easier, it still amazes people that, with all this tremendous growth, the Scene has only grown from one person to three who work throughout the month. Randy still does a little of everything, Lisa Tate writes the feature article and updates event listings and I take care of Advertising Sales and Distribution. Others help out with column writing, proof-reading and distribution. Last month, two days before publishing the May issue, I was involved in a Scooter versus Pick-up accident that sent me to the hospital for four days. At that point I still had customers to contact, ads to build and distribution to arrange. Thanks to the pain-relieving morphine, I have only vague memories of those four days. I do remember talking to Randy but I don't know what was said or arranged. Fortunately, Randy can revert to do-it-all mode. He got my files, got all my ads done, added a late call-in ad, arranged for distribution, and did my customer billing. He was also observant enough to know my recovery would take much longer than I was forecasting and took over re- fill distribution. Normally Randy takes care of re-filling locations on the west side of El Paso and I take care of the rest of the city. Re-filling racks is time-con- suming and takes me six to eight hours a week. Randy did it for me starting from the far West Side of El Paso and covering locations in the far East Side that he had never been to. All that while still taking care of the West Side. I was very fortunate to have had many customers, friends, and neighbors call and visit me in the hospital and home and offer their support and help. I hope to find a special way to thank them all. For Randy, my writing of this column is a small thank you card that eliminates one job of the hundreds and hundreds he does every month to give all of us the El Paso Scene. Also thank you for the “Get Well” bottle of tequila. — Albert Martinez * * * Editor’s note: Albert is mostly recov- ered, except for a stiff shoulder and a scooter damaged beyond repair. In over 12 years working with the Scene, this was the first time he had to take off work due to illness or injury. Filling in for Albert renewed my knowl- edge of the East Side, Horizon City and Lower Valley. It’s hard to believe how much has changed since we first began publishing the Scene in 1993. George Dieter was pretty much the edge of town back then. Now the new East Side sprawls past Loop 375 and Zaragoza. * * * This month’s cover is another of the Cover Award winners from last November’s “El Paso Scenes” exhibit. Don Beene’s “Promise of Rain” is partic- ularly appropriate for this time of year, when El Paso is thirsty for thunderstorms to relieve our drought. — Randy Limbird Albert Martinez © 2013 Cristo Rey Communications Randy Limbird Editor and Publisher (915) 542-1422 Albert Martinez Advertising & Circulation Director (915) 920-7244 Lisa Kay Tate Associate Editor (915) 542-1422 ext. 4 Editorial Associates: Yvonne T.

Music Cont’d from Page 22 June 2013 El Paso Scene Page 23 I nterviewing a young mother who had run to safety with her toddler son just seconds before a tornado demolished their Oklahoma home, CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer asked the woman “"You've gotta thank the Lord, right? Do you thank the Lord for that split-second deci- sion?” “I'm actually an atheist,” the woman sputtered in reply, leaving Blitzer him- self fumbling for a follow-up question. That awkward exchange led to consid- erable commentary on various blogs, with many posts congratulating the woman for her non-religious convic- tions. It also triggered renewed debate over various long-discussed theological issues. Does God really decide who lives and dies in a natural disaster? Or for that matter, does He decide who sur- vives and who doesn’t from any life- threatening situation, whether disease, accident or other calamity? If someone thanks God for a seemingly miraculous rescue or recovery, does that imply that God chose not to save others? If God is not able or willing to save everyone, how do believers reconcile that with the traditional belief in an all- powerful, all-merciful God? I have to admit that I often wince when I hear people thank God for answering their prayers as if they had been reward- ed for their faith. How many others prayed just as faithfully and did not receive what they hoped for? It can also be disturbing to hear some- one thank God for protecting them from harm and granting prosperity when oth- ers around them have lost family mem- bers and suffered financial ruin. We have to be careful not to cross the line from gratitude to thoughtless pride. We should be mindful that whatever blessings we receive may have little to do with our own merit. The deeper question that is raised after a major disaster like the tornados that swept through Texas and Oklahoma (which, however tragic, pale in compari- son to the havoc and suffering caused by earthquakes and tsunamis in other parts of the world) is why does God let this happen? After centuries of theologians and philosophers arguing over this point, there’s not much I could say in this brief column that would advance the discus- sion. But there is one question that always nags at me when I hear someone ask how a loving God can tolerate suffering. What world could God have created that would prevent it? Scientists tell us that life on earth is based on a narrow range of conditions. Change a few degrees of temperature and the composition of the atmosphere, and life as we know it doesn’t stand a chance. Earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados and hurricanes are all tied to the same global environment that gives us life. A world without potential threat to human life might not a world at all, at least not one that could support us. A similar case could be made regarding human evil. Could God have created us without the potential for evil? Would that be a life worth living? To blame God for allowing suffering may be the same as blaming Him for creating life at all. Of course, we can also blame God for not intervening countless times every day around the world to prevent the con- sequences of disaster and cruelty. If we think about, that’s really asking that God’s creation be nothing more than a cosmic marionette show in which He is constantly pulling the strings. I believe miracles do happen, but I don’t believe God intervenes in our world simply to patch things up. Miracles are not a way of fixing what’s wrong with the world, but reminding us that there is more than just this world. Randy Limbird is editor of El Paso Scene. Comments?

El Paso Scene Page 34 June 2013 Summer fun guide Cont’d from Page 33 A trip back in time is just a short drive away for El Pasoans looking for Wild West adventures, thanks to area his- toric sites, museums and other attractions featuring the era of 19th century sheriffs and outlaws, cowboys, ranchers, Native American tribes and soldiers. Even a “staycation” here in the Sun City offers plenty of Old West places to visit, from the El Paso Museum of History to the Mission Trail. Kids can immerse them- selves in old time activities at summer camps with western themes. Family day trips or weekend outings to Southern New Mexico or West Texas add a variety of ghost towns, historic museums, old mili- tary forts and more to the menu. Saddle up for a Wild West road trip One of these closest sites focusing exclu- sively on the cowboy life is the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Museum in Las Cruces. Museum Communications Manager Craig Massey said the “Wild West” is always very popular and the museum offers expe- riences that help bring this to life. “The ranching-type activities are the most popular among our visitors,” Massey said. “The most popular part of the museum is our livestock. We have horses, burros, goats, sheep, milk cows and six different breeds of beef cattle.” Families can see these animals via an eight-seat cart manned by museum guides. Pony rides for kids are very popular and offered at 10:30 a.m. and noon Saturdays for a nominal fee. Special events celebrating the farm and ranch world include the annual Cowboy Days in March with western demonstra- tions, re-enactments, musical entertainment and western art and writers and rodeo demonstrations. “In our enormous Horse and Cattle Barn, we also have an exhibit on display about saddle making,” he said. “It’s called ‘Slim Green: Master Saddle Maker.’” Southern New Mexico’s Old West destina- tions include many towns that still keep much of their Old West heritage intact. One of the quickest Southern New Mexico “Old West” visits is historic Old Mesilla, which bills itself as the best known and most visited historical commu- nity in Southern New Mexico, dating back to 1848. In addition to being the site of the pre-Lincoln County War trial of Billy the Kid, the community is also known for its involvement in the Gadsden Purchase, Civil War and Butterfield Trail, as well as being a social center in the thick of the cowboy era. Many of the storefronts in the Old Mesilla Plaza, from the historic La Posta and Double Eagle restaurants to the Billy the Kid Gift Shop, still maintain the look of the plaza from the late 1800s. Guests can visit the J. Paul Taylor Visitor Center inside the Town Hall to learn more. Lincoln, N.M., about 30 miles outside of Ruidoso, is the site of one of the Wild West’s most notorious battles, the Lincoln County Wars of 1878 and the wars’ most notable participant, Billy the Kid. The town’s history is celebrated the first week- end in August with Old Lincoln Days, including cavalry and gunfight reenactors, a Mountain Man Camp, vendors, an old west parade and the “Last Escape of Billy the Kid” folk pageant. Lincoln is also the destination of the Billy the Kid Trail Ride in late May that covers the same route Billy the Kid used to move between Lincoln and Fort Sumner after his infa- mous escape from the Lincoln County Jail. The Hubbard Museum of the American West in Ruidoso Downs is a Smithsonian- affiliated museum celebrating western art and culture and the cowboy lifestyle, with fine art and western artifacts exhibits, interactive areas for youth, regularly scheduled historic film viewing and Chautauqua presentations. The museum also sponsors its biggest event, the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium, each October at the Ruidoso Downs Race Track, where cowboy poets, musicians, craftsmen and chuckwagon cooks meet for concerts, rodeos, story- telling, demonstrations, swing dances and the “World’s Richest Chuckwagon Cook- off.” Other area museums highlighting the area’s western, ranching or farming her- itage are the Sacramento Mountains Historical Museum in Cloudcroft, the Geronimo Springs Museum in Truth or Consequences, the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum and the Silver City Museum. In addition to New Mexico’s destinations, West Texas road trips to the Big Bend region of Alpine, Marfa and Fort Davis keep the Old West alive with historic forts, sites and guest ranches. Each community has a historic hotel still hosting guests. These include Fort Davis’s historic Hotel Limpia, Marfa’s El Paisano Hotel (which housed many cast and crew from the Western classic “Giant”) and Alpine’s “main drag” stop, the Holland Hotel. Marathon’s historic Gage Hotel also offers a posh cowboy getaway. Other West Texas attractions include Sul Ross State University’s Museum of the Big Bend with a “Conquistador to Cowboy” exhibit on the settlement of the Big Bend in Alpine and Fort Davis’s Overland Museum and Fort Davis National Historic Site, considered by True West Magazine to be the “Best Preserved Fort in the West.” Many of the area’s cowboy-centric events are featured in the fall (including Alpine’s Big Bend Ranch Rodeo), although Fort Davis’ annu- al Mountain Man Rendezvous is now a spring event in which guests get a taste of El Paso Scene Page 35 June 2013 Please see Page 36 El Paso and the surrounding region offer a gold mine of places and events to learn about life in the 19th century Story by Lisa Kay Tate Below: Soldiers reenact the past at Old Lincoln Days (photo courtesy of Lincoln County Heritage Trust) Top Right: Los Pistoleros reenact the time Billy The Kid broke into the San Elizario Jail (photo courtesy San Elizario Historic District) Lower Right: Charras ride at International Day of the Cowboy last summer at the El Paso Museum of History (photo courtesy of History Museum) Page 36 June 2013 El Paso Scene rugged mountain living and witness activi- ties from black powder shooting to toma- hawk throwing. Sul Ross also comes to life with cowboy poets, performers and artists during the annual Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering in February. A smaller cowboy poetry event, the Bootheel Cowboy Poetry Fiesta, takes place in February in Lordsburg, N.M. benefiting the Lordsburg- Hidalgo County Museum. A trip further south to Big Bend State Park includes several cowboy surprises including historic sites in Terlingua and Study Butte (home of the World Champion Chili Cook-offs in the fall), historic Fort Leaton in Presidio, the ghost town ruins of Shafter, Big Bend Ranch State Park and the resort of Lajitas, once known as the only town with a beer-drinking goat “the late Clay Henry III” as mayor. The Wild West at the doorstep El Paso residents don’t always have to journey outside city limits, or at least not too far out, to experience the Old West, with hometown historic sites from the El Paso Museum of History to the Mission Trail. The History Museum brings the Wild West back to Downtown El Paso each summer, said its Senior Education Curator Sue Taylor. “We do a National Day of The Cowboy celebration every year, which ties into a nationwide event that is always the fourth Saturday in July,” she said. “That’s going to be really big event with charros, per- formers … an Old West Medicine Show and singing groups.” Taylor said the museum is working on securing additional cowboy trappings, such as a chuckwagon, mounted representatives from the Border Patrol and an Old West Fashion Show, among other events. The museum also hosts special events at times when the flow of out-of-town guests increases. For example, Taylor said, was the successful “Elvis, El Paso and the Real Old West” event held during Sun Bowl weekend, in which both area residents and visitors in town for the game could get a taste of the many aspects of the area’s past from gunfighters to rock legends. Another place to experience 19th century El Paso life is at the Magoffin Home State Historic Site. The adobe home, built around 1875 by Joseph Magoffin, includes authentic art and furnishings reflecting the daily lives of the Magoffin family. El Paso’s Franklin Mountains State Park, besides offering desert wilderness and solitude, also includes sites that appeal to Wild West tourism. Park Ranger Adrianna Weickhardt noted that the park’s hikes and tours of West Cottonwood Mines have become increasingly popular. “We have started offering them every month, and due to their popularity have been offering multiple mine tour opportu- nities on the selected day,” she said, noting first mine tours of the summer are planned on June 15. Weickhardt said the West Cottonwood mines or “prospect mines” were actively explored during the late 1800s and early 1900s when tin mines were being devel- oped and functioning on the east side of the Franklin Mountains. “The prospect mines on the west side of the mountain range, though, never turned up in great amounts the sought after miner- als that were hoped for,” she said. “Due to the little disturbances occurring within the mine now, crystals have had ideal condi- tions to grow and form which are a high- light for visitors. Bright blues, greens, yel- lows are a rainbow of colors along the walls in portions of the mine never fail to impress and drum up curiosity in our visi- tors. One is traveling back in time in the mines and has an opportunity to step into the shoes of those miners, connecting with a part of history in our region, understand- ing the determination and persistence of these early miners.” She said learning about the geology of the region is part of the allure of El Paso, along with its cowboy culture. The park also plans to host campouts, astronomy programs, outdoor cooking and other relat- ed events this summer. The Franklin Mountains are also home to McKelligon Canyon and its amphitheater, home each summer of Viva! El Paso, which celebrates the area’s Wild West her- itage along with its Spanish, Mexican and Native American roots. In El Paso’s Mission Valley both cowboy and Native American culture can be expe- rienced in addition to its popular historic missions in Ysleta and Socorro and the San Elizario presidio chapel. The Mission Valley’s stops include the Tigua Indian Cultural Center with Pueblo dance presentations every weekend and horno bread making, the Mission Trail Visitors Center and the Licon Dairy with homemade asadero cheese and an exten- sive exotics petting zoo. Of the three stops along the Mission Trail, some of the wildest history can be found in San Elizario. San Elizario Historic District spokesman Al Borrego said the area’s history is like no other in the area. “San Elizario’s history is second to no other place in our region spanning over 400 years,” he said. “From the First Thanksgiving in 1598, to the birth of the Presidio De San Elizario, the Civil War, the Apache Peace Camp, the First County Seat (when El Paso county also included what is now Val Verde, Terrell, Jeff Davis, Pecos, Culberson, Hudspeth and what is now El Paso County), Billy the Kid, The Salt War and to the birth of the American Southwest.” He said the Historic District produces several events such as the ongoing San Elizario Historic District Sculpture Series featuring works depicting the area’s history by local sculptor Guadalupe Jacquez Calderon, who runs the studio Gallery 10 on Main Street. “There are three (sculptures) on display,” Borrego said. “’Billy The Kid, ‘The Ox’ and ‘Oñate: El Encuentro.’ The fourth will be announced in June.” Each June San Elizario celebrates its own link to Billy the Kid with the annual Billy the Kid Festival. “The two-day event features Pistolero shows, wagon rides, western games such as a horseshoe throw, Billy the Kid look-a- like contest, and the play “Midnight Rendezvous: Billy the Kid and the Mystery of 1876,’” Borrego said, adding that this event compliments the communi- ty’s most popular visitor site, the jail. Even those unable to attend the festival can get a taste of Billy the Kids’ legacy via monthly tours and “jailbreaks.” “San Elizario Historic District Tours are free every fourth Sunday of the Month at noon and 3 p.m. The tours cover all the sites as well as the salt war and Billy the Kid,” Borrego explained. “The Pistoleros De San Elizario perform two ‘Billy the Kid Breakout’ shows at 1 and 3 p.m. every third Sunday during the art market,” Borrego said. Both El Paso and Las Cruces feature museums dedicated to the significance of the railroad in shaping the region. The Railroad and Transportation Museum of El Paso highlights more than 150 years of the railroad in El Paso, with its main attraction being El Paso’s “Old No. 1” engine built in 1857. In Las Cruces, the New Mexico Transportation Museum hosts year-round talks, early American family game days and the annual Railroad Days in the spring celebrating the first train coming to Las Cruces 133 years ago. The Old West has also become a signifi- cant part of the El Paso’s first “living labo- ratory” museum for children, El Paso Exploreum (formerly Lynx Exhibit). The Exploreum’s new interactive environments include the “Old El Paso Village,” an immersive play environment that gives families an “authentic taste of life from over 100 years ago” according to Exploreum co-owner and marketing direc- tor Laurie Paternoster. “In the General Store, visitors will find an authentic range of goods traditionally found in the Old West mercantile,” she said. “Children can pretend to shop for items ranging from buttons and material to tin ware and boxed products with replica labels researched from the era. At the Bank, our visitors learn the Morse Code, make pretend calls from a vintage phone and learn to weigh gold.” The area also features a one-room school- house with school furniture, items and books found in an Old West era classroom. She said a favorite with guests, however, pertains to the classic cowboy mode of transportation. “The most popular feature has been our self-propelled, ride-on ponies our visitors experience at the Livery stable,” Paternoster said. “There’s a photo opportu- nity on a real saddle and an opportunity to dress up in Western wear too.” Please see Page 37 Wild West Cont’d from Page 35 Sign post at San Elizario (photo by Rick Tate) Reliving the past Living history demonstrations and reen- actments can give families a “face-to-face” experience with the past, as groups like El Paso Six Guns and Shady Ladies, Pistoleros and other re-enactors make appearances, stage historic Old West gun- fights and share some facts about the past with current generations. El Paso most active reenactment troupe, Six Guns and Shady Ladies was founded as “El Paso’s Wild West Show” in 1998 by Bernie and Melissa Sargent. The traveling troupe can be seen at everything from city- wide street festivals to private parties. The group is also featured in several historic segments in Capstone Production’s El Paso Gold DVD series. According to the Sargents, the troupe “will perform historic and melodramatic “Wild West” Gunfight reenactments, vignettes of Victorian life, atmosphere enhancement and speaking engagements.” This summer, the troupe, along with San Elizario’s Desperados, recreate the Billy the Kid-assisted escape of his friend Segura from Old El Paso County Jail dur- ing San Elizario’s monthly Arts market, in addition to making appearances at National Day of the Cowboy with other local re-enactment groups at the Labor Day Festival in Cloudcroft, N.M. They are also planning a “bank holdup” June 27 for the grand opening of the United Bank of El Paso del Norte’s downtown location. In 2010, True West Magazine named Six Guns and Shady Ladies the “Best Reenactment Troupe of the Old West.” Many historic forts in the area schedule living history events throughout the year, highlighting soldier life during the Wild West and Civil War era, along with tours, history lectures and other events. Fort Bliss’s “Old Fort Bliss” replica includes original adobe fort buildings and military artifacts from its Magoffinsville Post days of 1854 to 1868. Historic forts also hosting regular tours include Fort Bayard near Silver City and Fort Stanton near Ruidoso. Fort Stanton’s annual “Fort Stanton Live!” celebration is held in July with reenactments of Civil War and Buffalo Soldiers, Mountain men and a candlelight tour. Fort Selden State Monument, 13 miles north of Las Cruces, offers frequent living history events, including an annual Frontier Day in September. Pancho Villa State Park in Columbus, N.M. takes a look at a different side of the area’s turn-of-the-century military history as the site of infamous Francisco “Pancho” Villa’s raid of Columbus in 1916. Reenactments and binational Cabalgata rides mark the anniversary of this raid every March 9 at Camp Furlong Days. Even though reenactments can bring the Old West “to life,” being able to actually “meet” some of the West’s historic lawmen and outlaws can make history seem even more real, and El Paso’s own “Boot Hill,” Concordia Cemetery in Central El Paso, allows visits with more than 60,000 “eter- nal residents” from the area’s history including both Confederate and Union sol- diers, Texas Rangers, Buffalo Soldiers, Mexican Revolutionaries, Chinese immi- grants and politicians, pioneers and more. The site’s most famous residents, however are gunfighter John Wesley Hardin, who met his demise in 1895 in the hands of lawmen John Selman, also buried at Concordia. The Concordia Heritage Association’s John Wesley Hardin “Secret Society” marks this fatal shooting every Aug. 19 at the cemetery with a reenactment of the event by Six Guns and Shady Ladies, a gravesite toast and ceremony and even a ghost tour. The association also hosts its annual Walk Through History tour every October where guests can interact with the “ghosts” of Hardin, Selman and many other residents. Extreme Wild West fans hoping to meet some actual ghosts of the past can take any number of summer tours hosted by Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society and Haunted History. The organization con- ducts monthly tours of Concordia, as well as other ghost-heavy sites like San Elizario and Downtown, as well as occasional tours to Cohen Stadium, Cloudcroft’s The Lodge resort (home to the well-known “friendly ghost” Rebecca), and other sites. These events are usually suitable for ages 13 and older, although some Midnight Tours are exclusively for ages18 and older. Ghost Towns and old mining communi- ties scattered around the region are any- thing but dead, and many host regular town tours or have become budding art communities. Two of the most active are New Mexico’s White Oaks in Sierra County and Pinos Altos. Seven miles north of Silver City, Pinos Altos is a min- ing town founded in 1860 that includes a thriving opera house, historic church that houses a season gallery by Grant County Art Guild and hosts a fall fiesta with gold- panning, reenactments and various chil- dren’s activities. White Oaks, a former gold mining boom- town and another old stomping ground of Billy the Kid which has evolved in to an arts and history destination, has been hailed by various tourism and western magazines as one of nation’s top “True Old West Town,” with several historic buildings and gravesites from the Old Schoolhouse to the popular No Scum Allowed Saloon. Several other historic “ghost towns” are found within a short distance from White Oaks include Winston, Chloride, Hillsboro, Kingston and Lake Valley, all suitable for family photo ops and history lessons. Rodeos and ranches Rodeos are a popular way for families to get a taste of the modern cowboy life. El Paso biggest rodeo, the Southwestern International PRCA Rodeo is set for Aug. 8-11at the El Paso County Coliseum after being held at Cohen Stadium for sev- eral years. Rodeo representatives have referred to the return to the stadium as “going home” and “returning to an old friend.” The rodeo is preceded by a fundraising Western Gala, “Cowboy Dress-Up” event at Sunland Park Racetrack with dinner, auctions and live country music. This year’s event is June 29. Other regional rodeos include the annual PRCA Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo in Silver City each June, the NMSU College Rodeo in the spring and the Mescalero Apache Ceremonial and Rodeo in Page 37 El Paso Scene June 2013 6ire yoat kome a Sammet Kake-0ret witk 0lSf00d1 fk88lfS ftom ldSl0£ 001 0£Sl6dS datekoase ftites ... 0esigaet µaalityI kmaziag Selettioa of 8eaatifal fabtitsI 4798 00dlfhkd 08.

Yoga For Life wishes to announce that Carol Johnson will retire from teaching Iyengar yoga and close the studio as of June 1. It has been a privilege to teach yoga for twenty-four years to the people of El Paso, Juarez and Las Cruces and it is hoped that all the students from Yoga For Life will continue to practice yoga at home as well as take classes at area studios in order to maintain the yoga community created by their study of Iyengar yoga. Thank you for all your support. Namaste, Carol Johnson Wild West Cont’d from Page 35 Mescalero, N.M. Fourth of July weekend. Most county fair events in both West Texas and Southern New Mexico feature rodeo performances throughout the late summer and fall months including the Socorro County Fair, Southern New Mexico State Fair, Otero County Fair, Lincoln County Fair, Sierra County Fair and Grant County Fair. Native American pow wows also wel- come families, with the most recent sum- mer addition, Southwest Desert Pow Wow hosted by the Southwest Apache Nation taking place the first weekend in June at Gadsden High School. These events often involve ceremonial entries, dances, drumming, food and tribal crafts. Fans of the classic Gran Charreada can catch the Mexican-style rodeo on selected weekends from area charro groups like Canutillo’s El Lienzo Charro Los Castros off Doniphan. These events often features trick riding, food and live entertainment with the rodeo performance. There are also guest ranch experiences offered all summer long, most notably the Flying J Ranch in Alto, N.M. with chuck- wagon dinners, gold panning, pony rides, pistol shooting and live dinner shows fea- turing the ranch’s own Flying J Wranglers throughout the summer. Visitor-friendly ranches also include Copper Creek Ranch near Silver City, and El Paso’s own Bowen Ranch near the city’s far Northeast. One of the better-known local “dude ranches” is Indian Cliffs Ranch in Fabens. The ranch is best known for its Cattleman’s Steakhouse, but has also built a reputation for its use as a movie location. Features include an antique wagon loca- tion, western town with working stable area, zoo, playground and walking trails. Some state or national parks and muse- ums host periodic tours of historic ranch sites, such as Sierra County Historical Society’s Armendaris Ranch Tours of a 300,000-acre Spanish land grant ranch departing from Geronimo Springs Museum in Truth or Consequences, N.M. Oliver Lee State Park between El Paso and Alamogordo also host periodic guided tours to its historic ranch house throughout the year, but visitors can also learn about it daily at the park’s visitor center. Setting up camp If enjoying the Old West from a tourist standpoint isn’t enough, young cowboy aficionados can take part in any number of camps, classes and workshops over the summer geared towards showing beginner buckaroos “the ropes” of historic and con- temporary western life. Taylor said the El Paso Museum of History will bring back two of its most popular summer camps, Cowboy Camp for ages 7-9 and “Night in A Real Museum” camp for aged 9-12. Cowboy Camp in particular lets younger campers immerse themselves in the Western life for a week. “They make hobby horses and learn to rope, brand and about parts of the saddle,” Taylor said. “They can lean all about the cowboy essentials.” Massey said one of the Farm and Ranch Museum’s best western camps this sum- mer is the “Ropin’ and Wranglin’” camp June 26-27. “Kids ages 9 to 14 can learn about the area’s ranching traditions,” Massey said. “They take roping lessons, learn about horses and cattle, and create their own brand.” El Paso Exploreum joins the western summer camp list this year with its new “Cowtown Western Camp,” set for June 24-28, July 15-19 and Aug. 5-9. The Magoffin Home State Historic Site offers Wednesday morning youth programs in June and July featuring different aspects of 19th century life in El Paso. Carlos Rodriguez of the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation’s Trailblazers Outdoor Recreation program works year round with area youth through Trailblazers programs including free summer camps for ages 8-17 offered in June and July Tuesdays and Thursdays at Keystone Heritage Park and Botanical Gardens or Mondays and Wednesdays at Chamizal National Memorial. The “Adventures and Outdoor Skills” section of the camp teach- es youth about orienting themselves in the wild as well as building forts and shelters. Individual horse farms and guest ranches host riding events and summer camps such as San Francisco Horse Stables near Transmountain Road. The stable will be the site of the summer long “Ultimate Cowboy Summer Camp” hosted by Paws and Hooves Mobile Veterinary Services with roping, horseback riding, archery music and other activities for ages 6 to 16. The Winston, N.M. Black Range Horsemanship Camp has been offering week-long camps for 20 years in the Cuchillo Mountains each July. Another way to discover the Old West is through the thrill of the hunt with the Border Museum Association’s 5th annual Museum Scavenger Hunt. The hunt runs through late July, and involves 20 muse- ums in the El Paso and Las Cruces area. Scavenger Hunt spokesperson Marshall Carter-Tripp stressed not every museum on the list pertains to or includes a “Wild West” element, as that is just part of the history and culture that make up the border including art, military history and desert ecology. As for the hunt itself, Carter- Tripp said families love the prize aspect of the event, but also love the hunt itself. “People are really surprised how many historic sites and museums there are in El Paso, as well as how many of these muse- ums are free of charge. That is not often the case in other large cities,” Carter-Tripp said. “It is quite eye-opening.” Cowboy events closing the summer include the annual Starr County Fair bene- fiting area 4H groups at Starr Western Wear in El Paso and the community of Carrizozo, N.M. annual Cowboy Day Street Fair, both in early September.

The couple’s own educational back- ground made them ideally suited to their work. Stephen studied architectural and graphic design at Woodbury University in California, finishing his degree at UTEP by adding art education to the package. Also a UTEP graduate, Andrea majored in special education with a minor in art. In the summer of 1988, Stephen had planned to complete his degree by teaching an art course for youths. When that was cancelled, Andrea suggested they present the course on their own — and Creative Kids was born. Today that seed has flow- ered into an operation that touches the lives of over 600 youths a year. Andrea and Stephen have accomplished so much so quickly by structuring their offerings into a series of “projects.” In Project MAP (Making the Arts Possible), Creative Kids collaborates with the El Paso Mental Health Mental Retardation to provide arts programming to young people with mental retardation, Down syndrome, bipolar disorder, autism and serious emotional disturbances. Project AIM (Arts in Motion) is an art and digital media program for pediatric oncology patients at Providence Children’s Hospital. Patients are engaged in a visual arts curriculum ranging from painting on canvas, printmaking and water media to graphic design classes on computers, learning to navigate Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Project ABLE (Art Brokers’ Learning Experiences) is a program for “at risk” youth in public housing. Projects include painting on canvas, silk screening, print making, sculpture and ceramics. Creative Kids’ goal is for each young person to enjoy the positive and creative aspects of self-expression through successfully creat- ing artwork in a safe environment. The OLO Gallery also opens its doors each weekend for Project SAC (Saturday Art Classes) for older children up to age 18 and Little Picassos (kids 4 – 7) to reach other youth not included in these other programs. Classes range from computer design and programming to cooking. Stephen and Andrea always have a spe- cial reason to celebrate Christmas Eve each year. It was on that date in 2005 that Creative Kids took a major step forward by purchasing an old warehouse building at 504 San Francisco in the Union Plaza district. In July 2006 they received a Community Development Block Grant from the City of El Paso to assist with remodeling the property into a light-filled, cheerful home for the non-profit. Making the public aware of their talented kids has always been a top priority for Creative Kids. In the early years, chil- dren’s artwork decorated the walls of local restaurants and businesses. Creative Kids recently has expanded this effort by estab- lishing partnerships with Southwest Airlines and Sun Metro. Passengers wait- ing for flights can now pass the time by strolling through the Southwest terminal and viewing the amazing paintings. Earlier this year, Creative Kids signed a contract to have artwork displayed in bus terminals around the city. Stephen happily reports, “Sun Metro has been very pleased with the results saying it has already served to cut down on vandalism.” Creative Kids is one of 50 finalists, cho- sen from among 376 other organizations, in contention for the 2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program award.

Winners will be announced in June, so keep your fingers crossed that this dedicated young couple will receive the recognition they so richly deserve. San Elizario Arts District Each year hope grows brighter that San Elizario will truly begin to fulfill its prom- ise to become an art destination. Rachael Escamilla, wife of impressionist painter Alberto Escamilla, is very enthusiastic about the growth in the area since their gallery on the Plaza opened a little more than three years ago. She reports, “I think the number of visitors has about tripled, and tourists are beginning to visit on a year-round basis. Also, we see many locals returning bringing friends and family along.” “Out-of-town visitors, especially those from foreign countries are so excited to find the artist in residence and being able to watch him paint.” Escamilla’s Placita Madrid location also houses Magdalena’s, a jewelry store which features handmade sterling silver jewelry. Other locations include the Mercantile Building and Golden Eagle Gallery, in which nearly 40 artists hang their work on a rotating basis. Nationally known Mestizo artist Amado Pena also has gallery space where he sells original art and prints, and visits in person on special occasions throughout the year. Maria Branch shows her paintings in the La Casita Gallery, and sculptor Guadalupe Jacquez Calderon works out of Gallery 10. The galleries, museums and the Old County Jail have finally established regular hours: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The First Friday Art Walk showcases artists’ work and features live entertainment from 6 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. The Mission Trail Art Market is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month through November. Public art is also beginning to find its place among the attractions. Members of the San Elizario Historic District have commissioned a series of 12 simulated bronze sculptures celebrating the history of the area. Artist Guadalupe Jacquez Calderon has already produced three pieces in the series. “Billy the Kid” is near the Old County Jail and a large “Ox,” sym- bolic of the animal that powered the Old Grist Mill, is near the mill. Commemorating the arrival of Don Juan Oñate to the area in April 1598 is “El Encuentro,” a sculpture of Oñate and a Manso Indian, which was unveiled April 21 in the sculpture garden at the new Peña Gallery in the Historic District on Alarcon Road. “Buffalo Soldier,” fourth in the series, will be unveiled later this year. San Elizario promoter Al Borrego empha- sizes that San Eli is just on the cusp of being discovered. “With three museums and all the art galleries you can now spend an entire day here. Things are finally beginning to come together. It takes time, but one day soon this will be one of the most exciting destinations in the region.” UTEP Centennial Museum If living on the border makes you curious about how our boundary lines were created and border issues are managed, check out the “Maps, Minutes and Monuments” exhibit that continues through July 20 at UTEP’s Centennial Museum. This highly informative exhibition chron- icles the history of the International Boundary and Water Commission, which was created by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. With headquarters in El Paso, Texas, and Juárez, Mexico, the IBWC has been charged not only with overseeing the boundary lines between the United States and Mexico, but also the allocation of water, desalinization and wastewater treatment between the border- ing states of each country. “The history of the IBWC and the El Paso/Juarez region are as intertwined as a strand of DNA,” said exhibit curator Michael Tarabulski, United States IBWC Librarian. “Through this exhibit, the citi- zens of our region should gain a sense of the part the IBWC has played in creating the El Paso and Juarez we know today, and the work that these regionally located agencies do that affects the economy and environment along our shared border.” In addition to historical documents, maps and photographs, the exhibit will also fea- ture a number of engineering artifacts, including brass survey equipment, used by the IBWC over the past century.

Anglo newcom- ers to the area tried to wrest political control of the salt fields near the Guadalupe Mountains from long-estab- lished Mexican residents centered in San Elizario. The feud erupted in bloodshed, climaxing in the capture of about 20 Texas Rangers and several executions. What most people may not realize about the Salt War is that it was also the climax in a series of often bloody battles between Anglo and Mexican interests across Texas known as the Cart Wars. The disputes began in southeast Texas, where Spanish/Mexican settlers had competed for nearly a century with Anglo pioneers, including many Irish immigrants, who would become known as the Tejanos. Well after Texas success- fully fought for independence then became a state, bad feelings between Tejanos and Mexican Texans lingered. By the middle 1850s both factions had built up a good business hauling mer- chandise from Indianola on the gulf coast to San Antonio and towns in between. Using oxcarts the Mexicans could move freight more rapidly and cheaply. This infuriated some Anglos, who destroyed the Mexican carts, killing a number of carters and taking their freight. Fighting started in 1855 and escalated through 1857 to the point some feared that a “campaign of death” against the Mexicans would get out of hand. By this time the area the carts traveled through had been divided into six differ- ent counties and most of the trouble was in Bee County, halfway between Indianola and San Antonio. Opinion in some of the counties ran against the carters, who were regarded as an “intol- erable nuisance” (despite being the origi- nal settlers of the region). Some newspapers spoke out against the violence. Other newspapers worried that if the fighting went on against the “weak race” it might become more of a war between the “rich and poor.” The Nueces Valley Weekly stated its “concern” for the Mexican, by claiming as “fact their being low in the scale of intelligence.” News of the violence around San Antonio soon reached Washington and steps were put into play to stop it. A spe- cial militia was formed, which angered some who still wanted the “peon Mexican teamsters” put out of business. But with the arrival of armed escorts, the “war” eventually subsided by the end of 1857. The fighting and bitter feelings between Anglos and Mexicans did not stop around the San Antonio area. For decades Mexicans had been haul- ing salt from the foot of the Guadalupe Mountains, 90 miles east of El Paso, Texas and always had considered it God’s gift for all the people, free for the gathering. But with the advent of Anglo businessmen who wanted to tie up the salt flats for their own profit came one of the bloodiest chapters in El Paso history. The Anglo/El Paso interests were head- ed by Charles Howard, while the San Elizario factions were headed by Louis Cardis and Father Antonio Borrajos. In 1877, Howard sought the arrest of two San Elizario residents who tried to collect salt. That led to an uprising against Howard, who was captured by a mob and held for three days in San Elizario. After agreeing to give up his claim to the salt beds, Howard was released and moved to Mesilla. He soon returned to El Paso and was gunned down Cardis. Howard was charged with murder but continued to press the fight, going down to San Elizario with an escort of Texas Rangers in December 1877 to file charges against those who were collect- ing salt without paying a fee. A mob gained the upper hand, forcing the Rangers to surrender after a five-day siege. Howard and two others were exe- cuted, while the Rangers were disarmed and released. Army troops and angry American citi- zens counterattacked a few days later, killing and wounding San Elizario resi- dents and forcing many others to flee to Mexico. In the aftermath, San Elizario lost most of its political power. El Paso became the county seat and a railroad center, bolstered by a reinforced Fort Bliss.

Many children in this country do just that – and for the same reason El Paso native Ashley Lucas did. Her father was, and still is, in prison. Children respond to that absence in many ways. Some become belligerent. Some often have chips on their shoulders and lack self-esteem. But for Lucas, the need to fill that gap took an artistic turn. She wrote a play about it. “Doin’ Time: Through the Visiting Glass” is a series of monologues showing people who have been affected by a family member being in prison. “In many ways this play is a very selfish endeavor,” Lucas said. “When I began this project, I desperately needed to write, but more than that I needed to find people who understood my experiences as a prisoner’s child. People who have a parent or parents in prison are much more likely to one day become incarcerated themselves than peo- ple whose parents have not gone to prison.” In her research and interviews, she found comfort in the stories of the people in her shoes. She also found out that, in many ways, she was lucky. She has a supportive mother who encour- aged her daughter’s creative genius. Lucas has been performing since she was an eighth grader at St. Clements School, play- ing the role of Anna’s son, Louis, in “The King and I.” After graduating from Bowie High School in 1997, she went to Yale where she majored in Theatre Studies and English (with an emphasis on acting and playwriting), graduating with distinction in both majors in 2001. Then she went to UC San Diego where she earned a doctorate in Ethnic Studies and Theatre and Drama in 2006. She now is at University of Michigan as Associate Professor of Theatre & Drama and the Director of the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP), a program that takes undergraduates into prisons, juvenile detention centers, and urban high schools to facilitate arts workshops. “From graduate school onwards, I’ve been specifically focused on theatre for social change, working primarily in Latina/o theatre and in theatre happening in prisons or around prison issues,” Lucas said. “Doin’ Time,” written in 2004, has been performed as a solo piece dozens of times across the country and in Canada, from prisons to universities. She will be in El Paso June 27 at Hanks High School to speak about and perform a few bits of her play as a fundraiser. “What I’m doing at Hanks High School is NOT a performance of the play,” Lucas said. “It’s a talk about prisoners’ families with monologues woven into it, and the event is a benefit for Community Solutions of El Paso, an organization that provides services to prisoners’ children. So few advocacy organizations provide practical help and services to prisoners’ families, and though I don’t live in El Paso anymore and can’t help out with their daily work on a regular basis, this is one way that I can help them continue to help kids who are growing up with the pain of a family mem- ber’s incarceration.” She knows that pain all too well. “Being in graduate school, I felt very much alone in many respects, and when my father was denied parole for the third time, I needed more than ever to speak to someone who understood what I was going through,” Lucas said. She started reaching out, looking for peo- ple who had family in prison. In 2004 she placed an ad in the newsletter for the Coalition for Prisoners Rights, a publica- tion to which prisoners all over the country can subscribe for free. By mid-January she had received 100 responses from prisoners. She now has received letters from more than 350 prisoners in 35 states and contin- ued to receive new responses until she moved to Michigan. “The men and women who wrote to me are extraordinarily brave for trusting a per- son they will most likely never meet and contributing to a play they will almost surely never see performed,” Lucas said. “I was only able to use a fraction of what they sent me in this show. I hope to write another play or a book some day that can more fully use their words.” Lucas said she took extraordinary cre- ative license in editing together narratives from the interviews, the letters and her life. Some of her characters are taken in their entirety from letters and interviews. Others are purely creations; some are a mixture of the two. “Ultimately they all reside in my body and voice in this production, and my deep- est wish is that my performance will honor all those who shared their lives with me in one form or another, especially my father, my mother, and my sister who each deal with this great drama/trauma of our lives with elegance and dignity.” She said the whole process of putting the stories together greatly affected her own life. “For ten years, I had felt that my family was isolated and silenced because people simply do not discuss prisoners, much less their families,” Lucas said. “The subject is both taboo and dangerous, yet I found many people who were as desperate as I was to share the ways in which prisons have shaped their lives. I am so grateful to these people because we were able to speak to one another as I have never been able to speak to the many people in my life who do not know what it is to live some of the most precious moments of their lives in the visiting room of a prison.” Once written, putting the show together was filled with the challenges of perform- ing with little money while teaching at uni- versity. Director Maria Figueroa and dra- maturge David Kim helped her research, write and rehearse the first version of the show. For many years, she toured the show with just herself and a stage manager. “It’s been lonely and exhausting at times, and I always see the play as a huge respon- sibility because people tend to see me as speaking on behalf of prisoners’ families, though I would never purport to represent such a large and diverse group of people.” Then in 2009, the loneliness dissipated when she began collaborating with Joseph Megel, who directed the current version of the show. “He’s an amazing director, and he knows my heart,” Lucas said. “I implicitly trust all of his impulses in the rehearsal room, and he’s made the show demonstrably bet- ter than it was before.” Megel went with her when she per- formed at Illinois State University in Bloomington and at Lincoln Correctional Facility for Women. “The women at Lincoln have a theatre troupe of their own called Acting Out, and they read my play about six months before my arrival, wrote their own monologues about families and visiting, and rehearsed them with their troupe’s director Sherrin Fitzer, who is a staff person at the prison. Joseph and I spent a day and a half in the prison rehearsing with the women and inte- grating their monologues into my play. We then performed a new version of the play together with all of their monologues and mine for an audience of about two hundred incarcerated women. It was by far the most moving and amazing performance of my life.” A camera crew filmed the performance, and Lucas and Megel now are working with a documentary filmmaker who is interested in producing a film about the play. But nothing surpasses the life-long con- nections she’s made because of this work. “All the prisoners, returning citizens, and their families whom I’ve met because of this play have made me feel so much less alone in my experiences of my father’s incarceration,” she said. “These people have bolstered my soul, and some of them have become close friends.” Carol Viescas is a veteran of community theater and teaches journalism at Bel Air High School. Ashley Lucas will give a public lecture and performance on Families and Incarceration at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 27, at Hanks High School Theater. Tickets: $12 ($7 ages 12 and younger).

This year marks a baker’s dozen for the annual event and almost as many times for our sister city of Las Cruces to host it. Eco-friendly initiatives are still in place for the traveling carnival, complete with bio-diesel fuel for touring vehicles and solar-powered sound systems. They will also be shooting for the extra gold star in social consciousness by encouraging fans to skip the line with their “Feed Our Children Now” and “Cell Phones Recycling” programs. Organizers have also brought back “Bandhappy,” a way for the masses to get that one-on-one interaction with their favorite musicians on the tour. Then there is the music itself for 2013: An Electronic Dance Music stage has been added for that burgeoning market and the “Acoustic Basement” will be expanded. The largest genres will always be Emo and Punk, but there are all the colors of the rainbow from Ska to Metal to Hip Hop, to good ol’ rock ’n’ roll. June 26 is the date to enjoy the sun and the sounds of the summer season. Halloween comes early as UTEP cele- brates two eras of Wicked. On June 8 we get to witness first-hand if the student becomes the teacher and, even better, if the old master has some new tricks up his sleeve. Whoever came up with this bill cer- tainly had the macabre on his mind. No mat- ter who’s your favorite, it’s irrefutable that Alice Cooper has earned the title of “shock rocker” and that the closest challenger in the last decade was Marilyn Manson — so what could be better than getting them both on one night(mare)? They are both still releasing new material with Alice conjuring up his sequel to his 1975 masterpiece, “Welcome to My Nightmare,” in late 2011 and Mr. Manson unleashing his ninth studio album, “Born Villain,” just a year ago. They are sure to pull out the hits, as well as introducing us to some of their latest tales. This is being billed as “Masters of Madness: Shock Therapy Tour 2013.” So it might just be one of those times where you can come for the music or the show — either way you are going to be entertained down to your core. National: Blind Melon, “Blind Melon 20th Anniversary Edition,” Capitol It has been 20 years since the tragically mis- labeled “one-hit wonder” Blind Melon unveiled its amazing debut, an album that easily fits into my personal Top 20 greatest albums. That’s even more upsetting because after lead vocalist Shannon Hoon’s death a series of underrated, fantastic discs followed. The first attempt was “Unified Theory,” which consisted of two original Melons. Then “Abandon Jalopy” upped the ante with three founding members. Lastly, in 2008 they came close to full circle with all the guys in place and the addition of vocalist Travis Warren. This is what perhaps lit the fire for this celebratory release. Besides adorning a slightly different cover and having been soni- cally upgraded with remastering, the true treasure here is the inclusion of five bonus tracks. These are affectionately known as “The Sippin’ Time Sessions.” The release features three original versions of songs that made the grade to the final disc, but here they have a richer organic feel, and with each and every utterance the depths of Shannon’s soul is revealed. Also added is “Soul One,” which made its way to the posthumous “Nico” LP. Lastly is “Mother,” a tune that has never made it onto any physical format. If all you know is “No Rain,” then be pre- pared to be washed away by the intensity, the emotion, the passion and the sheer brilliance that was Blind Melon. Midnight Oil, “Essential Oils,” Columbia/Legacy Australia may not rank as a major music exporter by most, but the “land down under” has given us some well-known acts, from AC/DC to INXS to Crowded House, and many more. One of the best that actually had a much larger songbook than many would imagine is Midnight Oil. The band was front- ed by environmentalist Peter Garrett, who came into most of our lives as he gyrated and wiggled around in their 1988 “Beds are Burning” video. They were no overnight suc- cess story: That was the band’s sixth album and it spawned several hits. Another disc fol- lowed with minor success and after that America shamefully lost interest. Making matters worse was the band only got better with the release of “Breathe” and “Redneck Wonderland,” and then their label lost inter- est as well. They packed it in nearly a decade ago, but Legacy Records has given us all a reprieve. “Essential Oils” celebrates all parts of their special slippery substance. The dou- ble-disc set combs over their entire cata- logue, all 12 albums and two elusive EPs: 36 tracks of rich, thick, solid goodness. The hits are certainly there and are bright spots indeed, but it is the in-between moments that make this collection truly incredible. “Essential Oils” are not just for skin and hair: Crank it up and bathe in some seriously splendid sounds. Guster, “Live Acoustic,” Ocho Mule It seems to be happening more and more in this modern age: if you are not on your favorite band’s email list or checking their webpage daily, you might just miss an incredible opportunity. The band dangling the golden carrot this time is Guster. This group appeared on the radar in the mid ’90s as an acoustic trio from Boston with dual vocalists, an extraordinarily quirky leader and whimsical lyrics. Then there is the immediately recognizable drummer who refused to use sticks and has opted for a bare hands approach on his full-fledged drum kit. Perhaps that can be most appreciated in a visual live setting, but the next best thing is “Live Acoustic.” Their newest limited disc is only obtainable via their website. The collec- tion truly showcases their sound, combining rich harmonies, pop layering and the percus- sive thread that punches it all up. They have also added a string section for the show, which adds a lush sheen to several songs. The set list runs 16 tracks long and takes us on a journey back to a cut off their sopho- more effort. This was originally pressed in a ridiculously low quantity of 2,000, but the band has changed the color of the cover and unleashed a few more for those who missed the first round. There is no telling if they will go for a third, so pick yours up today. Brian Chozick is owner of Tumblin’ Dice Music.
