Facebook group elpasospeak

February 25, 2019

We got some negative feedback from someone on the facebook group site elpasospeak.

The person was upset that we had not responded to a request that he made.

That group receives a link to each post that we publish here on this blog.

We do not moderate or read the facebook group, primarily because of the amount of time it would add to the daily process.

Please correspond with brutusep@yahoo.com if you have something that you would like to communicate privately.

We deserve better

Dare we open the blog to discussion about our national situation today?

Please keep your comments clean and don’t get personal.

Can we discuss the issues without getting partisan?

Let’s try.

Traffic suggestions

February 14, 2019

This came in from Xavier Miranda:


A couple of suggestions to alleviate the congestion expected during the exit closures:
City and Sun Metro officials should consider establishing temporary HOV lanes on Mesa, wherein buses and carpool vehicles are given priority during the rush hours. Dedicated lanes would result in Brio/buses running on 20-30 minute intervals.  Perhaps, if fares would be reduced during this period, ridership would also be encouraged.
EPPD should monitor Mesa, and switch the direction of high density lanes in order to encourage flow during peak hours.
Just my two cents.

Traffic question

February 11, 2019

Helen Marshall sent this in:

Driving around lately I have noticed that ambulances and fire trucks and even work convoy trucks carrying orange barrels have signs on the back saying “Keep Back 500 Feet.”  That’s close to two football fields….In order to read and act on said sign you would of course have to violate it.
Trying to picture the traffic maintaining 500 feet of separation with any such vehicle.  What is the fine for non-compliance?
Is there any sense to this whatsoever?  Do they just mean “stay out of the way, sudden stops likely”?
We deserve better
