Growing San Elizario

2019-11-1900:19:51

The City of San Elizario has a solution to the encroaching concrete and the ideas we have about not being able to create any new green spaces, or even grow food. I met with Maya Sanchez, City Administrator for San Elizario and Octavio Hernandez, who works with the City of San Elizario and the University of Auburn in Alabama. This is that conversation.This audio is part of an article found at San Eli News at www.SanEliNews.com

Meeting Scientology

Meeting Scientology

I have often wondered about the Church of Scientology, who they are and what they believe. I know a little, but I wanted to know more. So, I reached out to the Scientology Mission of El Paso, Texas, where I met with the Mission Holder, Joni Superville and Dr Jose Alverez. This audio is part of an article I've written for the El Paso Herald-Post, ANS, and Medium.

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, click the link below:https://apoetspath.com/2019/10/09/one-mans-journey-to-make-the-hands-up-act-law/

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." This interview is part of an article I've written.

The Pratts

The Pratts

2019-02-0601:12:32

This piece was one that could have taken so many different directions. There are so many stories from this one interview that I would love to share with you. Stories of life in Mexico, working on a ranch, working with George Romney when he lived in El Paso. There’s the story rabid cats and dogs, or one of the Pratt children chasing down a guy that was peering into her window. There are stories of the busloads of people that would show up at their home looking for a place to sleep as they went from Mexico or South America to the Temple in Albuquerque, New Mexico – there are just so many stories I didn’t know what to share! So many stories! While talking to the Pratts I was struck by their marriage, their life when they first met, how and when they finally married. That story, this one part of their life, that’s what I’ve decided to share. Seventy-three years of marriage. That’s a long time - 73 years. I’ve only been married for two years and cannot even begin to fathom seventy-three years of marriage. Vera and Gerald Pratt have been married that long, seventy-three years!This video is the whole conversation between the Pratts and myself. It was really hard, narrowing the article I wrote down to one story. I wanted to share it all! So, here it is. You'll love this!This is part of an article I wrote with the El Paso Herald-Post.
