Unfortunate trend

We are seeing more and more people that seem to think that jumping to conclusions is a form of exercise.

We deserve better

It’s Saturday.

What’s on your mind?

Not sure what he means

May 15, 2020

A west-side restaurant owner authored a recent article in ElPasoMatters.com.

You can read it here.

He tells us that he is angry.  Yet he does not tell us with whom.

I think most of us can read his article and understand his observations.  It seems that he has decided to remain closed.  He is taking responsibility for his situation and I respect that.

No one is forcing him to either open or remain closed.

Who does he want to do what?

What would ask be changed?

We deserve better


Less is more at EPISD

May 14, 2020

The El Paso Independent School District has been losing hundreds of students each year recently.

Their proposed budget for next year shows a drop in average daily attendance from 50,393 students per day in 2019-20 to 48,666 students in attendance per day in 2020-21.

That is a drop of 1,721 students in attendance each day.

Yet we don’t see the district’s budget getting smaller.

We deserve better


Mayor, please read this

This came in from Jerry Kurtyka with his request that we publish it:

Mayor Margo:

Read this article in El Paso Matters and pay attention. No one gives a shit about your handicap at EPCC.  The situation is desperate.  Get on you phone and call your friends who can get food here.  Got it?  Good.
