Letters in the daily paper alternated between cycling advocates arguing for more measures to protect bicyclists and motorists complaining of cyclists who routinely ignore traffic laws. I’m an enthusiastic cyclist who averages about 100 miles a week year-round, so of course it’s easy for me to see things from the cyclists’ point of view. But like nearly every adult cyclist, I’m also a motorist. But most motorists are not cyclists, so it’s harder for them to see both sides of the issue. On a recent weekend I was in two situa- tions with motor vehicles that illustrate why motorists get mad at cyclists and why cyclists get mad at drivers. The first occurred on a Saturday morn- ing as I was on my bike riding north, approaching a stop sign. I was was going to make a right turn. An SUV driving south was already stopped at that inter- section and was about to make a left-hand turn. I slowed slightly and the SUV seemed to be hesitating. It’s fairly com- mon for cars to let me go ahead, so I decided to keep rolling and turn right. Unfortunately, I misread the driver’s intent and he made his left turn at the same time. Of course I was in the wrong. The SUV driver made that quite clear to me by honking, rolling down his window and telling me, “That’s a stop sign, Bud.” I have no defense for running the stop sign, but I was certainly aware of the driver and even as I prepared to make my turn I kept to the extreme right just in case the driver decided to go ahead. I stayed out of his way, but he had every right to be upset. The next day I was riding on Doniphan just north of Sunland Park Drive. Doniphan has a wide shoulder, so at that time I was not even in the right-hand traf- fic lane, but riding slightly to the right of the white line marking the shoulder. There was a pickup truck stopped at a side street coming up to my right. Just as I got to the intersection, the truck pulled out in front of me as it was turning right onto Doniphan. Fortunately I saw this just in time to swerve left of the truck. It was a close near-collision, so my first instinct was to scream “aaaagggghhh” before yelling at the driver. The pickup driver never saw me com- ing. If I had not been paying attention, I would have suffered major injuries. That was the third time this year that a motorist endangered my life because he or she did not see me. Early this spring a driver turned right immediately after passing me, what cyclists refer to as a “right hook.” Then in May, I was riding in Santa Fe when a van turned left in front of me (we call that a “left hook”). Both times I was able to avoid a collision that could have sent me to the hospital. As a cyclist, it’s a routine part of city riding to watch out for these situations. I even wear a rear-view mirror attached to my sunglasses to monitor the traffic behind me. The point of sharing these stories is to make people aware that cyclists are always at risk. Motorists have every right to get mad at cyclists who break the law, but the cyclist generally is the only one in danger of bodily harm. Cyclists need to be mindful of motor vehicles as a matter of courtesy as well as their own safety. But when motorists fail to be aware of cyclists, they’re at risk of sending someone to the hospital — or even a mortuary. © 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.

Sports Cont’d from Page 27 See Pages 33-34 for Runs & Walks Please see Page 29 El Paso Scene Page 29 October 2013 C aptain A. H. French in 1868 opened the first newspaper in El Paso, Texas. It was a hand-writ- ten, three-column affair. He called it the “Montezuma Weekly Times,” a small sheet where he put in all the gossip and other interesting dark-side talk of the town. Mr. French had come to El Paso during the Civil War with the California forces to retake El Paso for the Union in 1863. He fell in love with the Southwest and remained here after the war, like so many have done throughout the cen- turies. He went on to be elected county judge in 1866, while the county seat was still in San Elizario. He continued edit- ing his weekly at the same time. French's weekly didn't last long. It was too much work. Others tried to start up newspapers back when El Paso’s population was only around 850 souls. It was hard because of lack of equipment, but that didn't stop some from trying. Men of some prominence in young towns always wanted a newspaper. They felt that next to a bank, a newspaper would help build a town. On Christmas Day 1872 the “Sentinel” made its appearance. In El Paso's case some of the most prominent men of the day got together to back the Sentinel: Simon Hart, one of the most important men in the Southwest and owner of Harts Mill; Dwight C. Marsh, the collec- tor of customs; Allen Blacker, a lawyer soon to be elected district judge; and Sherman C. Slade, customs inspector, who would eventually become editor of the El Paso Times. Mr. Hart was a principal backer but died Jan. 4, 1874, causing the paper to go out of business. The equipment was sold to Lawrence La Pointe, who was publishing the “Mesilla Valley Independent” at the time. El Paso went without a newspaper until April 1881, when both the El Paso Herald and the El Paso Times started their operation. The year 1881 was a busy time for young El Paso. The Southern Pacific and Texas & Pacific railroads were racing to the Pass. People had been waiting for the railroads since before the Civil War. Their arrival brought all sorts of new people to town, along with new busi- nesses. So much so that several busi- nessmen got together and lured Simeon H. Newman to town from Mesilla, N.M., offering him $1,000 if he would move his newspaper to El Paso. He did, renaming it the “Lone Star” in recogni- tion of his new town and state. Newman was probably the most bel- ligerent newspaperman to come to El Paso in years. He took on all comers, editorializing on any subject he thought warranted his comments, anything he felt was a determent to the growth of El Paso, and the Lord spare the people who disagreed with him — they felt his wrath with every stroke of this pen. More than 130 years later, businessmen still can’t resist the appeal of owning their own newspaper business. Jeff Bezos of Amazon fame paid $250 mil- lion cash for the Washington Post. I can't wait to see what impact his style of man- agement will affect the printed page. I heard that he thinks that in 40 years printed newspapers will be a thing of the past. As one acquaintance of mine noted, “I see it coming earlier than that.” Kathleen Parker, a columnist for the Washington Post, was shocked to learn the news. After recounting her view- points and facts of the Post’s long family history, she stated that the publicly held newspaper didn't have the necessary resources for innovation and survival in this Internet age. Maybe so, but it’s hard for me to take hold of if this is the new way of things. John McVey Middagh is a former saddle shop owner and an amateur local histori- an.

Sports Cont’d from Page 28 El Paso Scene Page 30 October 2013 El Paso Scene Page 31 October 2013 Photo courtesy of Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon On your mark ... ready ... GO! El Paso’s running season hits full stride each Fall Story by Lisa Kay Tate F or running enthusiast Chris Rowley, keeping up with the fall calendar of events is a marathon in itself. Not only does he own the Up and Running spe- cialty store, but his company Race Adventures is the leading organizer of run- ning events in the El Paso area. About 14 major races are scheduled in October alone, and about half of them rely on Race Adventures, run by Rowley with fellow runner Mike Coulter, to help with registration and other race details. September was equally popular, with at least 15 such events scheduled in the El Paso/Las Cruces region. Fall weather is the major reason for the popularity of these events, which range from 5K run/walks to the half-marathon Transmountain Challenge and even include multiple marathon events the end of October and beginning of November. “The temperature starts to cool off in the mornings and there will be more atten- dance at the events,” Rowley said. It’s not just about running, either. Events now offer more variety than ever, includ- ing triathlons, “paint races,” “mud runs” and even “zombie runs.” As many as three or four area runs are scheduled on the same weekend during the fall. Rowley feels there is no such thing as too many events if each one can bring in at least 200 participants. “I think it is a positive thing,” Rowley said. “We continue to see groups and organizations that are putting on runs. They bring out brand-new participants and then they get hooked on a healthy activity.” Rowley’s personal favorites include the Transmountain Challenge, Up and Running Jingle Bell Run, El Paso Marathon and its half-marathon and 5K, the Jackrabbit Classic Trail runs and the 4th of July 5K. While marathons require considerable training and running experience, many runs are ideal for beginners. “For new runners, I recommend a flat 5K course, but one that has a good number of people in it so you can feel the excite- ment,” he said. Calendars of local runs are posted on websites such as Race Adventures’ racead- venturesunlimited.com and runelpaso.com, the latter belonging to the Run El Paso organization. Run El Paso members include every level from those who attend the occasional 5K, to those who regularly participate in marathons as well as some “50-milers” and 24-hour road runs The El Paso Triathlon Club also shares information on triathlons, training pro- grams and similar events. Other running clubs include El Paso Hash House Harriers (who call themselves a “drinking club with a running problem”) and Border Jumper Hash House Harriers. Hashing is a style of running that has been around since late 1930s, in which runners cover all types of terrain from trail to urban, but ultimately end up at a local drinking establishment for cooling down and camaraderie. Avid runner Marina Monsisvais, who has worked in the past with events such as the El Paso Marathon, feels El Paso is gaining an improved attitude toward fitness shared by much of the country. “I think as a whole, the country is becom- ing more health conscious and while there are running events every weekend in El Paso, it’s not until lately that you’re hear- ing more about them because of increased participation,” she said. Monsisvais, whose favorite local running events include the Mighty Mujer and Eagle in the Sun Triathlons and the El Paso Marathon, said running isn’t always about winning; it is about reaching a personal fit- ness goal. “I’m not a fast runner, but signing up for races keeps me focused on a goal. Without those race goals, I’m easily swayed toward the couch,” she explained. “The more peo- ple run, the more they look for races to participate in. There’s this nice sense of community, too. All of a sudden, you find yourself surrounded by like-minded indi- viduals who are motivated to live a healthy lifestyle.” Planning a run With the abundance of runs in the area, knowing how to plan, market and budget a run is an important process for the organi- zation involved. Coulter, who serves as race director for the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon, has also worked year-round helping nonprofit organizations and other groups schedule their own runs, particularly 5K (3.1 mile) events. He said the most obvious reason for the popularity of the 5K is simply because “it’s fun.” “It’s actually really fun and it’s a distance a lot of people can undertake,” Coulter said, adding not only is a 5K course a good length for runners of various fitness levels, it is often accompanied by a shorter fun run/walk making it even more inclusive. Coulter also noted that El Paso’s weather contributes to the volume of running events: “Our worst weather is often some other place’s best weather.” The increasing number of races and walks means participants have more choic- es of distances, routes and causes to sup- port, Coulter said, but he added that it can hurt a hosting organization that hasn’t planned their event properly. Coulter said when he is approached by an organization interested in setting up a run he always starts out by asking them basic questions, such as what is the purpose of the run and are they capable of gaining the sponsorship needed to cover expenses. “It’s going to cost you something to put this event on,” he said. “You want to make sure you can get sponsors who are willing to help out.” He also asks if their community — school, church, non-profit — will suffi- ciently support this event. A run’s success really depends on the hosting organization working to spread the word within its own communities. For example, Coulter noted one success- ful run each spring is El Paso Diabetes Association’s Race Against Diabetes, which taps into not only those affected by diabetes, but their friends and families and medical personnel. With that base of sup- porters, it’s easier to attract runners with no connection to the organization or its cause who simply want to participate in a well-attended run. “A crowd attracts a crowd,” he said. “If you see a restaurant with a full parking lot, you want to go and check it out. Same thing works for running. If there are a lot of participants, it must be a great event. Some runners aren’t even asking what the cause is, they just want to be part of the run.” He cautioned that successful planning requires time to gather sponsors or create a word-of-mouth and social media cam- paign. “We generally want to work with a 20-week timeline,” he said. “If you try to rush it, things will get overlooked and missed.” Going the distance The goal of many devout runners is to get a good marathon or half-marathon under their belt. For the past eight years, the city’s own official marathon, the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon, has given local runners a place to achieve that goal within their hometown. Please see Page 32 Coulter referred to the Michelob Ultra El Paso Marathon as the city’s first official marathon (which allows runners to quality for the Boston Marathon), but there many have been other marathons (26.2 miles) and half-marathons (13.1 miles). Perhaps the best-known event on the El Paso run- ning calendar is the TransMountain Challenge, which marks its 36 th anniver- sary this October. Other regional marathons include the commemorative Bataan Memorial Death March in March at White Sands Missile Range. Marathon, Texas takes advantage of its name for the straight shot “Marathon 2 Marathon” course in October. Juárez hosts the Gas Natural de Juarez 4th annual International Marathon Oct. 20. There’s also the newly created Day of the Dead Marathon Series with both marathons and half-marathon events planned for Halloween and Day of the Dead weekend, as well as the Las Cruces Half-marathon and the upcoming Flying Horse Half Marathon on Oct. 26. The 8th annual Michelob Ultra E Paso marathon is Feb. 23, 2014. Coulter said planning for the event is a yearlong process, with kick-off and sign-up events often planned in the summer and fall. About 48 percent of the more than 1,500 runners in the full-marathon distance hail from outside the El Paso area, he said. “We get runners from close to 40 differ- ent states each year,” he said, “but we have a strong pull from Texas, Mexico, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. We really have the Southwest covered well.” International runners include a large con- tingent from Mexico, of course, and a few from as far away as Canada and Europe. The shorter events, such as the half- marathon and 5K, are dominated by El Paso runners. Even the locals often enjoy running through areas they may not have seen before, such as Fort Bliss and historic neighborhoods like Austin Terrace. Running plus fun Run organizers have learned a key to making a run successful is to make it not just a run, but a special themed-experience adding color, costumes, obstacles and, often, zombies! Local fitness event organizer Erace3 was the first group to host a popular “mud run” or “paint race” event in El Paso, and is still continuing to create events that will not just challenge participants to stay active, but keep them entertained. Erace3 spokespersons Brian Guzman said one of the goals of Erace3, which takes its name from the concept of erasing El Paso’s 2011 ranking by Men’s Health Magazine as the third fattest city in the United States, was to bring events to the city that were already becoming popular in other parts of the country. “We started this simply because these events weren’t coming to El Paso, and we wanted to save El Pasoans money by bringing the events here instead of people having to travel to take part in them,” Guzman explained. Since then, Guzman said similar national and locally-organized events including The Color Run and El Paso Z-Day zombie run have come to the Sun City. Creating a winning concept is always a challenge, and Guzman said Erace3’s events have had varied success. Obstacle runs and their recent Color My Cause were well received with their lowest-attended event being the Santa Speed run in December. Guzman guesses this low num- ber may be have been due to warm weath- er loving El Pasoans being a little hesitant to strip down to bathing suits in the winter. The group’s next event is the nighttime Running Dead 5K zombie run, planned appropriately for Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos, at Ascarate Park. Last year’s race at La Union Maze was extremely success- ful, Guzman said. “All in all, people just want more enter- tainment,” Guzman said, adding with 5K events offered every weekend, getting one to stand out may mean adding a twist to it. If it is different from the others, people will come. “We get all walks of life from very young to very old, and they are all out there smil- ing,” Guzman said. “We just want people to get up off the couch and get out and exercise,” he said, “and we really want them to have fun doing it.” One of the particular draws of a zombie run is that people of various fitness levels can also take part by volunteering as actors to play the part of zombies. Last year’s event saw volunteer “zombies” not only on the course, but wandering the parking lot before the event getting race participants revved up for the run. Another feature of their events, such as the Color My Cause and Running Dead, is that people can choose from five local charities including Child Crisis Center, Humane Society, Diabetes Association, Paso del Norte Children’s Development Center, and Rio Grande Cancer Foundation, to support with their race fee.

Photo by Lauren Deputy October 2013 Page 33 Wounded Warrior Project and Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home. Tuff Entertainment representative Frank Powers said the idea of the zombie run gives the popular mud run challenge that extra incentive to attract participants. “(Mud runs) are always looking for that edge or obstacle to set itself apart from all the other mud runs,” he said. “What better obstacle than the Undead, and with the popularity of recent TV shows like ‘The Walking Dead’ and movies like ‘World War Z,’ the fascination and craze for zom- bies is growing at an enormous rate.” Powers said the Z-Day event will also host an evening Undead Fest for runners and other zombie enthusiasts, and encour- age local participation keep the zombie run trend going, as well as an increase in their own events with more themes. He said for serious runners, the zombie theme is just an added obstacle for them to conquer, and prizes will be awarded for various finishers. Plus, he said completing any run challenge is in itself a reward. “It’s a personal challenge,” Powers said. “Once completed, there is no other feeling of accomplishment better than finishing. It’s a self-paced event and will show you what you can really achieve if you just get out there and try.” El Paso’s running community has also caught the attention of the nonprofit origi- nator of paint races, The Color Run. Billing itself as “The Happiest 5K on the Planet,” participants are encouraged to wear white, and are doused in bright, safe, cornstarch-based colors each kilometer. According to the Color Run’s public rela- tions specialist Jessica Nixon, in 2012 there were 50 events domestically and three events internationally last year with 600,000 runners. In 2013, The Color Run will host more than120 events domestical- ly and more than 50 events internationally. A Sept. 15 event at Ascarate Park drew thousands of El Pasoans. “The reason The Color Run has grown so popular is because anyone, from all differ- ent types of athletic backgrounds can par- ticipate in the event,” Nixon said. “It is marketed as a fun run and is not timed. Both of these facts make the race lack the intimidation factor that other organized fit- ness events tend to have.” “To encourage serious runners, this is definitely an event to run with your friends and family that maybe are not as physical- ly active,” Nixon said. “To encourage novice runners, more than half of our par- ticipants are running a 5K for their first time. It is the perfect event to reach their 5K running goal, while having fun with their friends or family.”  For the Running Dead run, Guzman said a night run on Nov. 2 is also a great way to end the Halloween, Day of the Dead fes- tivities: “We just want people to come and finish their party with us.” Guzman feels the creation of these events by local organizers as well as national organizers noticing the market potential in El Paso is a good indicator more and more area residents want to get in shape and have a good time in the process.

Please see Page 34 El Paso Scene Ask Dr.Dan L.M. from Central El Paso writes: Dear Dr. Dan, We are expecting our first baby in 4 months and my husband is telling me I need to be vaccinated against whooping cough. My mother says that she never received this during her pregnancies. What is up with this? Is it really that important? Dear L.M., Your husband is right on this one and 'kudos¨ to him for being well in- formed. Unfortunately, the State of Texas is currently being hard hit with whooping cough infections. Newborns and young children are especially sus- ceptible to severe complications which may result from this condition also known as Pertussis. Prevention ideally involves vaccination of all the people who will be close to your baby; how- ever, an additional strategy may be to have YOU get vaccinated between the 27th and 36th weeks of your preg- nancy. This will impart antibodies to your baby and may turn out to be the most efficient way to protect him or her from whooping cough. In fact, the vaccination is so important that one current recommendation is to consider being revaccinated with EACH of your pregnancies. (Please see the September issue of SCENE for our suggestions on the flu vaccine.) During pregnancy good parenting shall begin And if the maternal bond comes from within Get the TDAP shot for what it`s worth It`s a way to love your baby ÷ even before birth. You may submit questions or comments for Dr. Dan at [email protected] Dr. DanieI Aronson is the Chairman of the Department of OB/GYN at Sierra Provi- dence East Medical Center and he is on the board of the Sierra Provi- dence Physician Performance Net- work.

Art Scene Cont’d from Page 42 Page 43 El Paso Scene October 2013 October 2013 Page 44 F all means it’s time once again for the much-anticipated Arts International, which will open on Saturday, Oct. 5, with a gala reception 6 to 9 p.m. at the Crossland Gallery in the Art Junction, 500 W. Paisano. This year’s entries include 126 paintings and nine sculptures created by 51 artists from El Paso and the borderland region extending into West Texas, New Mexico and Chihuahua, Mexico. Dr. Michael Tomor, director of the El Paso Museum of Art, will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Kelley Hestir from NMSU’s art depart- ment served as jurist for the 2013 exhibi- tion. A sculptor herself, Kelley has the dis- tinction of being the artist who created the Bataan Death March Memorial at Veterans Park in Las Cruces. Based upon Hestir’s selection of paintings and sculptures, Dr. Stacy Schultz of the UTEP Art Department judged the artwork for Best of Show, and First, Second and Third Place prizes. A number of sponsors will also present spe- cial Memorial Awards. El Paso Scene again sponsored the El Paso Scene Cover Award, which is featured on this month’s cover. Guests at the opening reception may also come home with a prize— each catalog will include a chance for the opportunity to win door prize gifts. The Arts International is hosted and organized by the El Paso Art Association. This year’s chairperson, Donna Vesely, who took over responsibilities in mid- June, deserves major kudos for putting together a beautiful and well-planned exhi- bition in record time. Although she is a long time El Paso resi- dent, Donna is a bit of a newcomer on the El Paso art scene. She said she did not really get involved as an artist until she began showing her work at the Sunland Art Gallery in November 2010. Donna describes herself as a traditional oil painter, who has dabbled on and off for most of her adult life. Entering exhibitions with the Oil Painters of America in 2012 and 2013, she was juried in as an associate member in 2013. Even if you don’t make the opening, you can view the exhibition through Nov. 2 at the Crossland Gallery. 20 ‘Cover Girls’ I believe every woman at one time or another has harbored the secret desire to be thought of as a “Cover Girl.” The October exhibit at the Hal Marcus Gallery, 1308 N. Oregon, will recognize 20 El Paso women artists with that title. Gallery owner Hal Marcus came up with the catchy theme as a way of honoring both the women artists and the 20 th anniversary this fall of El Paso Scene. The invited artists were drawn from the list of women artists whose artwork has graced the cover of the Scene since 1993. Artists chosen from this extensive list include: Corinne Abeyta-Spinnler, Maria Almeida Natividad, Natalie Baca, Earline Barnes, Stephanie Conroy, Nina Eaton, Vallarie Enriquez, Melinda Etzold, Maritza Jauregui Neely, Lisa Matta, Candy Mayer, Carmen Navar, Pat Olchefski-Winston, Rosario Ponte, Krystyna R. Robbins, Hilda Rosenfeld, Maria Savitsky, Jody P. Schwartz, Jeniffer Stapher-Thomas, and Lyuba Titovets. El Paso Scene publisher Randy Limbird is often asked , “Just how does one get to be a cover artist?” Randy responds, “Because the name of the publication is ‘El Paso Scene,’ I like to have a cover that reflects that idea, some- thing representational of El Paso. I choose my images from both paintings and pho- tography. A good many are landscapes or cityscapes, or they often highlight a partic- ular event or exhibition. While you won’t see abstract art or individual portraits, over the years I have chosen ‘people’ scenes such as folklorico dancers or a mariachi band.” As regards the latter, Randy relates that one of his favorite covers was a “gordo mariachi band” painted by Mauricio Mora. “The image was so well received that the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce asked to make it into a poster. This was when Mauricio was just starting out, and I believe that exposure helped launch his career.” Another very important criterion is art- work that will reproduce well in newsprint. Randy emphasizes, “Good color contrast is a must since the paper we use is not partic- ularly friendly to certain imagery. For instance, fine detail or subtle color gradua- tions may make for wonderful art that we can appreciate on canvas, but it often looks washed out when it comes to putting it on newsprint.” Many times, personal choice also factors into his decisions. Randy jests, “When you pick artwork to hang on the walls of your home, what you select might not necessari- ly be the best art in technical terms; rather you choose what appeals to you. In a way, the Scene is my living room, so over the years when it comes to covers I have cho- sen what appeals to me. If I like it, gener- ally others will like it as well.” With six individual appearances and 19 joint covers, Candy Mayer likely holds the title for the most times as a cover artist. Recalling her first cover on the September 2002 issue of Scene, she enthuses, “It was such an honor, I felt like I was the cover of Rolling Stone”. Doing individual covers in 2003, 2004, 2006, and 2011 and 2012, she explains, “Randy sometimes requested images for specific events such as the Culture Cruise. However, what most artists don’t realize is Please see Page 45 Arts International opens Oct. 5 at Crossland Gallery El Paso Scene that they can simply submit images of their work. Randy keeps these on file and may use them at a future date.” Another of the 20, Hilda Rosenfeld laughingly refers to herself as one of the “old guard,” an identity would also fit another ‘cover girl’ who is now deceased, Earline Barnes. These lovely ladies had already built enviable reputations a decade before Scene came into existence, but Hilda shares that she was still very pleased to be invited to show her work as a cover girl. In fact, she created a new image pre- cisely for this exhibition, a landscape with Mt. Cristo Rey set against the background of a vibrant sunset. “No place else has sunsets like El Paso,” she said. Pat Olchefski-Winston, another artist whose work often appears in the Scene, is well-known for the calendars she creates featuring iconic El Paso landmarks. “I was busily painting images for my 2014 Calendar when the invitation came from Hal to be part of this show so I just carried on in that vein and painted two more landmarks for this exhibition. Now I can now say that I have done an even 50 images of El Paso and the Southwest.” Ever ready to move on, the innovative Miss Pat says with her 2014 calendar now complete, it’s time once again for her more abstract muse to take over. While the majority of the women are painters, the exhibition will also feature work by two of our most talented photog- raphers – Jody Schwartz and Nina Eaton. And as an interesting and unique coinci- dence, we have mother and daughter “cover girls.” Marina Savitsky and Lyuba Titovets. Randy can definitely look back over the past 20 years with a great deal of satisfac- tion, first knowing that his publication has reached that milestone in a very difficult market, and most of all knowing that it has made a difference to the quality of life in El Paso. With that in mind, he notes that one of the things he finds the most rewarding is knowing that being a cover artist always makes on impact in the life of the artist. “With some of the early artists, being able to put ‘award winner’ with their name helped further their career. And in every case, it’s something they can show their friends and feel really good about. Although they are always pleased when the El Paso Times prints one of their images, the reality is that exposure is only for a few days while the image on the cover of Scene will be out there for an entire month.” Myrna Zanetell is a freelance writer spe- cializing in the visual arts.

On S tage Cont’d from Page 51 W hen artist extraordinaire Tom Lea wanted something, he knew it instantly. That quality fascinated writer, produc- er, director, and actor Camilla Carr, and also made her job writing the first installment of the Tom Lea story, “Tom Lea, Grace Note in a Hard World,” a work of pure joy. “He proposed to Sarah (his second wife) on their very first date,” Carr said. “I don’t think he was impulsive at all; he just knew himself and trusted his instincts. And with an artist, that quality is critical. His memory of details, addresses, specifics, was truly amazing. This is divinely helpful if you happen to be writing a play about him.” The Tom Lea Institute commissioned Carr to write and direct, and Frontera Repertory Co-Founding Artistic Director Kathryn Smith-McGlynn to produce the play. All involved hope it will be a con- tinuing theatrical project chronicling Lea. “This play is about his early life, who his mentors were, and what El Paso and New Mexico meant to him and how it influenced his work and life,” Carr said. The process began when Carr’s partner, renowned artist James Magee (for whom she relocated from California to El Paso) introduced her to the founder of the Tom Lea Institute, Adair Margo. “Adair formed the Tom Lea Institute around the same time that Kathryn and I began forming Frontera Rep,” Carr said. “We were delighted when Adair took us to lunch and presented the concept of us creating a play about Tom Lea.” Carr has a notable history as a novelist, screenwriter, playwright and actress. Her first play, “All About Bette: An Interlude With Bette Davis,” has been optioned by five-time Tony Award-winning producer Michael A. Jenkins, who is bringing it to New York next spring. In South America, la gran diva Mimi Lazo will create “Bette” in a Spanish production this January. Carr also co-produced the original West Coast stage production of “Last Summer at Bluefish Cove,” which gar- nered a Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Award, multiple DramaLogue, AGLA, Robby and Oscar Wilde awards, as well as a proclamation from the City of Los Angeles for Outstanding Theatre. This record-breaking production became one of the longest running hits in Los Angeles history. Carr also is a producer on the Spanish production of the film (retitled “Liz En Septiembre”), currently in post-production in Venezuela. “I have written lots of long-form tele- vision based on true life stories,” Carr said. “I know from experience that writ- ing about a real life requires extensive research, so I gave myself about six months to read and let a structure devel- op before I started to write.” El Paso’s first look at Tom Lea’s life in a play will benefit from Carr’s many connections with the top names in the entertainment industry. “Before I had even put pen to page (or turned on my computer) I knew I want- ed Ray Baker to play Tom,” she said. Baker has starred in such original Broadway productions as Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize winning play “Crimes of the Heart,” (as the sweet Doc Porter) and the Tony Award winning “Torch Song Trilogy.” He also was in Off- Broadway hits such as Henley’s “The Lucky Spot,” and created memorable characters in such films as “Girl, Interrupted” with Angelina Jolie, “Rain Man” with Dustin Hoffman and “Anywhere But Here” with Natalie Portman and Susan Sarandon (All four of those actors have received Academy Awards). “Ray Baker is a great and distinguished American actor, and we are very, very lucky to have him,” Carr said. “And anyone who has ever been to his home in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving knows that Ray and his wife, actress/playwright Colleen Dodson-Baker, turn out the best Thanksgiving gatherings anywhere in L.A.” The list of top actors continues beyond Baker. Lea’s parents will be played by top pros Algernon D’Ammassa and Mary Jane Windle. “I must say all of our actors are simply first rate: Oscar Avila will portray both Pancho Villa and painter Enrique Alferez, a young Hispanic artist who was sponsored by the El Paso Kiwanis Club, which paid his way to Chicago so he could go to the Art Institute. He and Tom Lea were roommates and Tom, who spoke Spanish, taught Enrique English. “Cerris Morgan-Moyer — who recent- ly did a reading with Al Pacino, starred in Ed Harris’ ‘Appaloosa,’ just finished the National Tour of ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ and is partnered with Johnny Depp in the new visuals of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ publicity campaign — will come in from Los Angeles to play Nancy Lea, Tom’s first wife. “It was a real opportunity to create this character, the young fellow artist Tom fell in love with, studied with at the Art Institute, experienced his early and defining successes with, travelled to Europe with, brought home to West Texas, and who fell in love with the landscape and stars and their life on four acres outside Santa Fe with the very same passion as her husband. It is a story both romantic, pragmatic, expan- sive, and tragic. “Now this, of course, is really interest- ing for me as a writer, because generally people know more about his second wife, Sarah (immortalized in his famous portrait of her, ‘Sarah in the Summertime’). Rebecca Rivas, a real talent and beauty, who is a visiting pro- fessor of Voice and Movement right here at UTEP, will play Sarah, whose impor- tance in Tom’s life is, I hope, clarified and depicted as fully and beautifully as it was in real life.” The play, part of Tom Lea Month spon- sored by the institute, likely will make its premiere here, but go beyond El Paso. “I know Kathryn, Adair and I would very much like to take this first play to venues outside of El Paso, and we hope to develop a plan to do this following Tom Lea Month,” Carr said. However, this isn’t the only El Paso connected writing Carr is doing. She is currently adapting Janice Woods Windle’s bestselling novel, “Hill Country” as a mini series for television. Also in development is her own original screenplay, “Packard Jordan’s Final Appeal to the Texas State Parole Board” to star Dale Dickey, (Spirit Award at Sundance for “Winter’s Bone”). Though she wears the many hats, including that of director, producer and actress, the title of writer – screenwriter, playwright and novelist – dominates. “When I am writing, I am completely entranced and engrossed with that process,” Carr said. “At age 7, as soon as I had somewhat conquered the alpha- bet, I wrote my first story and just never stopped. I am eternally grateful that my mother gave me paper and Crayolas and asked me please not to write on the walls or the floor.” Carol Viescas is a veteran of community theater and teaches journalism at Bel Air High School.

Liddell won the gold medal in the 400 meters in the 1924 Paris Olympics, but withdrew from the 100 meters because he refused to run in a qualifying meet held on a Sunday. Born in China of missionary parents, Liddell returned there as a mis- sionary himself after his college and ath- letic career. He died at age 43 at a Japanese internment camp in China only a few months before it was liberated in 1945. What sets this movie apart for me is that the movie celebrates Liddell as a young man full of discipline and convic- tion, but also full of humor and grace. His faith is not a mere response to adversity, but a dedication to service and excellence that practically ignores the idea of adversity. A famous scene in the movie recounts a 1923 440-yard race in which Liddell was knocked down short- ly after the start, but managed to make up a 20-yard gap and win at the finish, before collapsing of total exhaustion. The movie of course dramatizes certain elements. In the movie Liddell learns about the Sunday heat just before the Olympics and announces he will not run; in real life he knew about this month before and his decision was made then (he also declined to run in two relay events for the same reason). Some might regard Liddell’s refusal to run on a Sabbath as legalistic, but for Liddell it was simply a matter of obedience to God’s law. An event later in Liddell’s life dispels that notion of legalism. At the intern- ment camp in China, he was asked to referee the boys’ soccer games but declined because they were conducted on Sundays. But fights kept breaking out during the games, so he stepped in as referee because he was the one person in the camp whom everyone would respect. The role of Eric Liddell was the most famous accomplishment of Ian Charleson’s career. A Scot himself, Charleson was a highly regarded stage actor, from Shakespeare to musicals, before being cast in “Chariots of Fire.” His success in that film led to a well- received role in “Gandhi” as an Anglican minister and confidante of the great pacifist leader. Like Liddell, Charleson died young — at age 40 in 1990. He specifically requested that it be announced after his death that he died of AIDS. Since 1991, the Ian Charleson Awards have been given in his honor for the best classical stage performances by young actors. It’s fascinating to me that Scotland’s beloved athlete and missionary was so richly memorialized on film two genera- tions later by a fellow countryman who happened to be gay. I don’t know what Charleson’s actual views were about the Christian faith, but I read that he immersed himself in the Bible to prepare for the role of Liddell. The fact that Charleson could so power- fully grasp the character of this man of faith and portray him so vigorously on film certainly helped me reconsider my stereotypes about homosexuality. What initially struck me as a paradox became more of a wonderful reminder of how God’s kingdom is so much big- ger than I can imagine. At least a couple of God’s “many mansions” must be occupied by Liddell and Charleson. I hope they are neighbors, and I hope someday to eavesdrop on their conversa- tions.

They have become Rock and Roll Hall of Fame residents and a few years later put their stamp on the VH1 Storytellers series. Maybe all these accolades gave them the kick in the behind they needed to finish their 15th album after a decade-long absence from new material. “La Futura” is their latest and it has that amazing bluesy, dirty feel of their early work. The band will honor us Oct. 11 with their Lone Star state boogie-woogie, rockin’ blues at Inn of the Mountain Gods. The set list is running pretty hits-heavy, which always makes for a good time, and they have been known to throw in a Jimi Hendrix cover and a touch of The King’s greatness with Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock.” “La Futura” for you is plain and simple: ZZ Top in New Mexico. Now if we could only predict the future at those craps tables. Vince Neil warms up at Speaking Rock There have been some recent grumblings in the Mötley Crüe camp that the band has decided to throw in the towel, but not before one more trek around the globe. Lead singer Vince Neil has found a way to heal these very new wounds. He is going on the road solo style as a warm-up to the gigs without the boys. On Oct. 12 Speaking Rock Entertainment Center will welcome the Mötley Crüe frontman. His last disc, “Tattoos & Tequila,” came out three years ago, and the group’s last collection of origi- nals was almost another three years before. This should be of no concern because there is certainly a well of hits to draw upon. Let us also not forget that all but two tracks on the aforementioned solo album were cover versions. So we may get some Creedence Clearwater Revival, Aerosmith, Scorpions and even a little Elvis Presley channeled through him since they all made appearances on that CD. There have also been hints of some brand-new material from the gang before they pack it in, so perhaps a preview of those songs may be on the menu; either way it will kick-start your heart. National: Willie Nelson, “To All The Girls,” Legacy Records It was an ode to the ladies of his life, and now some three decades later it has returned as the title of his latest release. Just like the last time it’s all about duets. The big differ- ences here: no Julio Iglesias and no “… I Loved Before.” This time it is simply “To All the Girls…” and at the tender age of 80 Willie Nelson has released a second album in less than a year. This time he has chosen partners that are current superstars, such as Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Norah Jones. He has also gone the classic route by teaming up with Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton. Then there are the few crossover artists such as Brandi Carlile, Mavis Staples and Sheryl Crow. Several of the disc’s 18 cuts were written by Willie himself, the standout cer- tainly being the up-tempo “Bloody Mary Morning” with Wynonna Judd. Many others are penned by some of his best buddies in the business; Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Merle Haggard are all rep- resented. He also isn’t afraid to take on rock royalty with his brilliant renditions of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dry Lightning” and his one- of-a-kind version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Have You Ever Seen the Rain.” He appears to have covered it all with one glaring omission. “To All the Girls I Loved Before” is nowhere to be found, or maybe that’s just because he already has more than he can handle with the 18 females gracing this fantastic new album. Unfortunately they all won’t be with him when he performs in El Paso Nov. 14 at The Plaza Theatre. Rolling Stones, “Crossfire Hurricane,” Eagle Rock Entertainment There have been countless numbers of Rolling Stones movies, documentaries and concert videos, but none has captured their true emotions like the latest DVD from Eagle Rock Entertainment, “Crossfire Hurricane.” There are stunning admissions, explanations, candid moments and reactions by the mem- bers of the band. Former band mate Mick Taylor sets the record straight that it was a burgeoning heroin addiction that made him depart so early. Drummer Charlie Watts detested the role of a superstar, and being extremely embarrassed by the throngs of girls who chased them. Legendary bad boy Keith Richards simply passes off his deviant behavior as the one who had to “wear the black hat.” Not to be missed is longtime cohort and saxophonist Bobby Keys asking Mick to refrain from indecent gestures when his mum was in the audience. In perhaps the most stirring moment, Mick reacts to the reminder that original guitarist Brian Jones died only three weeks after being fired from the group. This doesn’t even touch upon the archival musical footage, from unseen shows of the Australian tour of 1973, countless numbers of unheard versions of favorite tracks, and even a different line sung in “No Expectations” that has never appeared any- where else. This is one Crossfire Hurricane that you will be happy to be caught in. Collectibles: Sandra Boynton, “Frog Trouble,” Workman Publishing Company It is once again time to revisit what the young’uns are listening to, but this time it comes in the form of a CD and book combo pack that makes children’s music actually enjoyable for adults and kids alike. It was masterminded by Sandra Boynton, a cartoon- ist, children’s author, songwriter, producer and director. “Frog Trouble” isn’t necessarily all about the amphibians, although there is a step-by-step instruction page for making your very own Kermit-like puppet. This is about getting together with the little ones and singing along to some simple country ditties. Subject matter ranges from flying pigs to trucks to alligators to a broken piano. All of this was written by Susan but the icing on the cake is the musicians she enlisted to bring her words to life. Who better to talk about tickling the ivories than Ben Folds and the pop wonder boys in Fountains of Wayne? Dwight Yoakam takes on an ode to man’s best friend, Ryan Adams brings airborne swine to life, and most intriguing is Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees fame using his deep gravel growl to tell us all about Frog Trouble. There are 12 cuts in all and it won’t be any trouble, frog or otherwise, to find a family favorite. Brian Chozick is owner of Tumblin’ Dice Music.
