Social Security Scam Call

Social Security Scam Call

2019-07-0500:26:08

There is a new scam going around, and it's a twist on the old IRS phone calls. This time around you receive a call from "Social Security" informing you that other federal law enforcement agencies have placed a hold on and cancel order for your social security number. Yet, in the end, if you send them all your money, they will safeguard it for you and give it back once you meet with federal law enforcement officers. This audio is part of an article for the El Paso Herald-Post. To read that article, just follow the link below:https://elpasoheraldpost.com/audiostory-new-social-security-number-scam-springs-up/
BNHR And Build The Wall

BNHR And Build The Wall

2019-06-2700:25:18

I'm not happy that we think only one opinion matters and that's our opinion to the exclusion of all else. It saddens me. It hurts me. My hope going forward from here is that everyone who was involved in this protest will reflect on their actions and realise there are two sides to every coin. Two voices need to be heard, and maybe we can mature a little bit, grow up and come to the table and find a bipartisan solution to this problem and stop blaming everybody else out there. It's our problem. It's your problem. It's mine. It's everyone's, let's solve it in a way that doesn't cause more division.The Border Network for Human Rights mounted a protest at the Border Patrol Station in Clint, Texas. I was about to speak with people on both sides of the border issue - in hopes of presenting a whole vies of the situation. I would like to host a larger discussion on the issues of immigration, the arrest and detention of children, and more. If you ware willing to be a part of this, and you are in El Paso, send me an email at steven@stillgoingsomewhere.comThis audio is part of an article at the El Paso Herald-Post. I do hope you'll take the time to read the article and view the photos. https://elpasoheraldpost.com/gallerystory-dueling-protests-held-outside-of-clint-border-patrol-station/

Ysleta Lutheran Mission

I’ve written about Ysleta Lutheran Mission Human Care (YLM), and what they do. I’ve written about their outreach to the community, and their needs so that they may continue to do so. As school is out and the summer is upon us, I thought I would catch up with the happenings at YLM and the newest member to the family, Luz SotoLuz Soto is an El Pasoan who graduated from Concordia University, in Texas. Her involvement with the Mission goes back to when she was seventeen years old, both providing service to those in need as well as receiving life-changing service from the Mission. Now, taking over for Chris Hill, Luz is the communications director for YLM.This is my interview with Luz Soto and Rev Dr Karl Heimer of Ysleta Lutheran Mission Human Care. This is part of an article I've written for the El Paso Herald-Post.

We often think that if we are hurt, injured or sick that we will be able to see a doctor. Visit a doctor’s office, go to an emergency clinic, even a trip to the hospital. It is a fact of life that there is going to be a doctor for us to see. Even without medical insurance, or the ability to pay, there are still places like the RotoCare Clinic at Ysleta Lutheran Mission Human Care that will see you. Yet, we never stop and think about what would happen if there wasn’t a doctor to see you. This is my conversation with Dr Sudheer R Gorla about the future shortage of doctors, as well as those who have come to this country to practice medicine.This audio is part of an article I've written for the El Paso Herald-Post.

Hands Up Act

Hands Up Act

2019-06-0700:18:58

“I don’t care who you are,” says Travis Washington. “I don’t want anybody shot unarmed.”There are some good police officers out there. However, like any profession, there are those bad apples in the bunch. When you are a police officer who is on the wrong side of the law, then you tend to make the rest of the force look as bad as you.Travis Washington has created the Hands Up Act. A very much needed bill. “The whole purpose of this bill is to protect individuals who are being shot, unarmed, by the police. Because right now the United States is the number one country across the whole globe leading in most police shootings,” says Travis Washington. “Like the United Nations has already declared that police shooting unarmed people as a form of lynching in the United States of America.”To sign the petition, click the link below:https://www.change.org/p/us-senate-hands-up-actTo read my article, at the El Paso Herald-Post, click the link below:https://elpasoheraldpost.com/videoaudiostory-one-mans-journey-to-make-the-hands-up-act-law/

Fish The Clown

Fish The Clown

2019-05-0500:08:48

Clowns scare the hell out of me. I see a clown and I want to do one of two things: run and hide; or run and get a baseball bat and beat it. I just don’t like clowns. So, a conversation that Chantilly began with two guys in Walmart the other day sort of left me unnerved. But, hey, what the heck, right? In the Walmart on Alameda, in the self-checkout right next to us, was this guy buying a lot of artificial flowers. Chantilly asked him what they were for, as one of them was huge, and he told her he was a clown and attending an event this Friday. Little did I know that I would finally find a clown I wouldn’t want to run from. So, who is this clown? I’m glad you asked. It’s Fish the Clown. This is part of a photo-filled article at the El Paso Herald-Post.

while walking through El Paso ComicCon on April 18th, I overheard a conversation between a vendor and someone looking at his art. The vendor was asked why he was drawing African-American superheroes. His answer was what pushed me to stop and interview him. “If we don’t represent ourselves,” he said, “who will do it?”That vendor is Terry Huddleston, an artist with a great style.I told him what I had overheard.“Really the nuance of that is important for us to represent ourselves correctly. Because I mean, there's a lot of outcry about how we're misrepresented by other cultures, but at the same time in every culture is guilty of this, we always put our best foot forward, and it's always, here's the cream of the crop. In the other 99% of the culture don't get represented at all," says Terry Huddleston. "I kinda noticed that inverse where like, you know, nobody is representing heavyset women in ComicCon and they're not representing certain types of body types and other aspects. It's almost like, hey, let's bring that to ComicCon and see what that does to the pop-culture sphere. And it has really been received very well."

“The first one is very Mortal Kombat meets hunger games. It's a very action pack story. It's a live adaption from my comic book series, the Vanquishers,” says Joe Lujan. “Now the squeal picks up in the exact last scene of the Immortal Wars in the sequel. So, this one, it's now a little bit more dark, a little bit more intense. I like to say that the Immortal Wars 2 is now like Resident Evil meets Mad Max type of style film.”In this episode of Still Going Somewhere we talk with Joe Lujan about his newest movie - Immortal Wars: Resurgence. This is the sequal to Immortal Wars. Both are great movies from and upandcoming independent filmmaker. This episode is made in colaberation with the El Paso Hearld-Post.
