You'll find stark, desolate beauty unlike any other place in the world at Texas' largest state park.
Gary P. Nunn sings about the "Terlingua Sky"
"We don't know what we got when we got it.
We don't know what we're missin' 'till we try it.."
Big Bend Ranch State Park, the largest state park in Texas, encompasses over 300,000 acres of remote desert wilderness. Visitors have plenty of space for hiking, camping, mountain biking, horseback riding and paddling the Rio Grande.

Real Country Music. If you like Waylon, Willie, and outlaw country music, you're going to love George Goss. "Ain't No Honky Tonks in Jail" is pure Texas Americana Music written from George's life. Anna Oakley played fiddle and Pat O'Brian did the video. This is what Nashville ought'a be. Get more Real Country Texas Americana Music from George at http://reverbnation.com/georgegoss

Alex Whitmore and Terlingua musicians gather for a tribute to Glenn Felts, owner of La Kiva, in loving memory.

IMPORTANT:If you received new Voter Registration cards in the mail, and information differs from that on the last card you received.  Look for changes on the right side of the card (the little boxes).  Some are almost unreadable, the ink is so dim.  Some cards have one or more errors.  For example, if you know you are in Pct 7 and your new card says Pct 6 - or, if you know you are in the Terlingua Common School District (T4), and your card has simply a 4 or a 5 without the T, you should call the tax office and let them know.  They will probably tell you to come to Alpine (180 mi) and they will fix it. Otherwise, I would suggest that you take BOTH your old card and your new card when you go to vote - and stand your ground.  These errors are not your or my fault.

The Green Scene (10/25/14) wants more vendors, musicians and volunteers.  Come join the fun.  Also our raffle tickets are for sale at $10 each or 3/$25 at the High Sierra.  1st Prize a complete solar system.  2nd prize a solar oven. Contact Zoey at 371-2172

The Texas State Health Department will have a flu clinic, giving shots, this Thursday, October , 2014 from 10 – 2 pm at the Community Center in Terlingua.

This publication has received information on each side of a terribly heated local squabble.  It is not the responsibility of The Moon to take sides or to resolve issues. This is not the place to attack your neighbors. Every person on every side of this misunderstanding is beloved in this community.  Some people named are not even around to defend themselves.  You are all our beloved friends.  You guys need to work this out. This is the final time this editor will publish this kind of stuff. No attacking and no rebutting here anymore.  Sorry.  Please Find Another Way.


WHAT IS A 501C3 SCAM???? THE BIG BEND CITIZENS ALLIANCE!!!!!!!!!!!WHO ARE THEY??? PRESIDENT, DANILEA BOTTENFIELD, VICE PRES. FRED GOSSIEN, DIRECTORS MELINDA HAMLETT, BETTY L. ALEX, JOHN WURZ, ZOEY SEXTON, ZENNA ZELLER, BONNIE WUNDERICH & MARCOS PEREDES. KYOTE RADIO WAS NOT A 501C3 SCAM. IT WAS A GROUP OF FRIENDS THAT LIVED IN AN AREA WITHOUT LOCAL RADIO, AND WHO WANTED LOCAL RADIO... JOHN WURZ VOLUNTEERED TO OPERATE THE STATION WHEN THE FOUNDER BECAME TOO DISABLED TO KEEP HIS COMMITMENT, AFTER 10 YEARS OF OPERATION... THERE WAS A FUNDRAISER FOR KYOTE HELD IN THE GHOST TOWN THAT RAISED 3,000 DOLLARS... THIS MONEY WAS FOR THE SUSTAINING OF EQUIPMENT FOR KYOTE, NOT FOR A 501C3 SCAM... NO ONE THAT DONATED MONEY WANTED A 501C3 SCAM. JOHN WURZ CLAIMED HE HAD INVESTED 1,100 DOLLARS OF HIS OWN MONEY FOR THE SHORT TIME HE WAS INVOLVED. HE TOOK 1,100 DOLLARS. HE WAS INSTRUCTED TO LEAVE THE EXACT MONEY WITH A TRUSTED FRIEND UNTIL IT WAS NEEDED... THIS HAD WORKED WONDERFULLY FOR 10 YEARS... JOHN WURZ'S TRUSTED FRIENDS WERE THE 501C3 SCAM, THE BIG BEND CITIZENS ALLIANCE, OF WHICH HE WAS A BOARD MEMBER...JOHN WURZ FLED THE AREA, RESIGNED HIS BOARD MEMBERSHIP... THE 501C3 SCAM HAS REFUSED TO RETURN THE MONEY TO THE RIGHTFUL PERSONS THAT MADE KYOTE HAPPEN FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS. TO MAKE THIS SITUATION WORSE WHEN JOHN WURZ FLED THE AREA, HE LEFT THE KEY WITH CLAYTON DRINKARD... CLAYTON DRINKARD, EVEN WITH REPEATED WARNINGS, COULD NOT KEEP THE F WORD OFF THE RADIO... WHEN I RECEIVED THE FOURTH COMPLAINT FROM LOCALS, I TOOK THE TRANSMITTER AND CLOSED THE STATION, AFTER ALMOST 11 YEARS OF OPERATION... WITHIN 72 HOURS, TWO MEN FROM THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMISSION, FROM DALLAS, WERE IN THE GHOST TOWN, LOOKING FOR UH CLEM!!!!!! JOHN WURZ, THAT WASN'T YOUR MONEY; ALMOST 1,800 DOLLARS. YOU NEED TO COME UP WITH KYOTE'S MONEY... WE KNOW WHO YOUR TRUSTED FRIENDS ARE, PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY, 501C3 SCAMMERS, CORPORATE THIEVES OF THE BIG BEND CITIZENS ALLIANCE.. WHEN YOU SEE YOUR 501C3 SCAM MEMBERS, TELL THEM YOU WANT THEM TO GET ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY... THEIR PHONE NUMBERS ARE LISTED...

In response to some inaccurate statements posted around town!
The Big Bend Citizens Alliance is a legal non-profit 501c3 staffed totally with community volunteers and dedicated to improvement of the general quality of life.

Funds are strictly protected and regulated by 501c3 rules and are held locally and carefully accounted for and distributed. 

Committees under the BBCA include the Garden and Farmers Market, Recycling, Voices from Both Sides, Terlingua Cares, the Baseball field, Kids Klub and Ghosttown Charities.

All accounting and minutes of the meetings are available to anyone interested in the facts. Specifically funds donated to the now shut down Kyote Radio station are duly held and accounted for.  Those funds are available if Kyote were to become a legal FCC station.  Anyone interested in restarting a legal radio station can attend the next BBCA meeting in November (date to be announced).

Sincerely,
Zoey Sexton, former Secretary BBCA
