The second of the Lajitas Fall Concert Series took place October 28th under an almost full moon.  On deck were even more than just the eight singer/songwriters that were promised.  With the gorgeous stage of the Lajitas Ampitheatre, the crowd was entertained by hugely talented performers with a connection to our Big Bend.  Next up is another night of singer/songwriters, this time of the feminine variety.  What did you miss?  Just Jeff Haislip, George Goss, Jim Keaveny, Trevor Reichman, Laird Considine, Brent Lovelady, Trevor Hickle, Hank Woji, Greg Grimes, Sian D. Ferris and the Whitmores, Marti and Alex. THANKS, Lajitas!

BLAST FROM THE PAST - We visited with a local from long ago at the Cook-off over the weekend, Lynne McClanahan. She worked at Poncho's way back in the day (early 80s). She and her husband Bob have a food concession called Bison Foods. They will be in our area for a few days and then will set up during the ART WALK in Alpine. If you are an 'old local', go give 'em a big South County hug. I highly recommend their food, especially the HUGE fajita burritos. Mine was just about the best one I ever had.

The first Homecoming Parade EVER will be this Thursday beginning at 5:00 at the school.  The parade will travel north on 118, turn around at the Motor Inn and return to the school for the Homecoming Pep Rally.

Survivors of drought and wildfire, Gila trout get second chance in Southwest wilderness:
Washington Post 11/2/2012
Meanwhile, along the Rio Grande in central New Mexico and West Texas, biologists are releasing hundreds of thousands of endangered Rio Grande silvery minnows.
"The conquistadors called Big Bend 'el despoblado', the deserted wilderness.  Not many have ever wanted to live in this brutally harsh desert, not soldiers, not settlers, not smugglers. Even Apaches and Comanches were just passing through.  -   Until now."

LAST MINUTE, LOW BUDGET PRODUCTIONS There's nothing like holidays and holiday memories to remind us that family get-togethers can sometimes be volatile. In True West by Sam Shepard, brothers Austin (Chris Lee) and Lee (Billy Miller) reunite after five years of distance for three sweltering days and nights in their vacationing mother's home in suburban California. Love and envy do battle in a shifting landscape of reminiscence, competition, and boozy camaraderie. Mind games will be played, plans will be betrayed, and yes, toast will be made. Directed by Scott Watkins and also starring Joe Sirotnak.

This latest Last Minute Low Budget production will run January 13-22 with performances at 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays and 2 pm Sundays. Opening Night Gala on the 13th!  The ticket price for all shows is $10.00 - at the Theater Behind the Store.

Last Minute Low Budget Productions is a non-profit community theater troupe based in Terlingua.  It has been putting on theatrical productions in South Brewster County since 1989.  This production will be staged at the chili cookoff venue behind the Terlingua Store where the troupe has performed for many years.  While it is great to have a place to act 50 weeks out of the year, it is not a real theater and is not climate-controlled.  Money is being raised for the construction of a new home—the Mercury—on land donated by Terlingua Fire and EMS on Highway 118, which will be built specifically as a theater.  Donations toward this exciting project can be mailed to Last Minute Low Budget Productions, Box 522, Terlingua, TX 79852.

Plans to be open each Saturday in January. We are adding an additional rack and will be restocking the racks each week, so come in and look at our new (to us and to you) merchandise each week.  See you

EL CENTRO/H2O 2 GO
This will be the last water catchment tank
order of the year. The truck-load is close to half filled now. The salesman has said that prices will increase after the first of the year.  Call 371-2506 and
leave a message. DO NOT leave a message on the 2499 number; we will never
get it.

RE: Water Bottles.  This time of year we start on our year end tax and bookkeeping chores.  In years past, bottles and deposits fall short from between $300 and $700, which we have to pay our bottled water distributer. Yep; it's a lot of money. Please look
around your house and storage and return bottles you owe or at least stop by and pay us the $7 per bottle.  If bottles are filthy, sun damaged, cracked or damaged in any way, please - you keep (or throw away) that bottle and pay the deposit due. You can drop cash or check and a note into the mail slot on the front door at El Centro.
Thanks - The Burrs

KEN BARNES
Thank all for participating and HELPING with the Joee May Barnes scholarship fundraiser. We raised $1430. Sorry we ran out of food, especially meat. We noticed a few people getting meat to take home which is a NO - NO, THEY KNOW WHO THEY WERE.

CAROL VILLRREAL
On November 11th we called every restaurant that we could reach in South Brewster County to see if they were doing anything special for Veterans’ Day.  The answers were pretty much “Um, ahh, I don’t think
so.”  Shame on you South Brewster County!
Let’s give a special “Thank you” to Terlingua School for their program on Monday and Big Bend National Park for their celebration.
Don’t forget to thank every Vet you see for their service.

MUSIC LISTING
Please welcome back to Terlingua, John Elliott (California), who will be performing with Trevor Reichman (Big Bend) for two shows in the area:
@ the Thirsty Goat in Lajitas on Friday November 16th @ the Starlight Theatre on Monday, November 19th.  Both shows start around 7 PM, Terlingua time.

John Elliott:
Born and raised in Minnesota and now living in California, John Elliott has been releasing albums and touring full time since 2006.  His songs have been prominently heard on "Grey's Anatomy," "One Tree Hill," and "Californication." He has been featured in PASTE Magazine, on NPR and on Neil Young's "Living With War" website. John remains an independent, unsigned and unaffiliated artist and he is proud of that fact. He continues to make a living and build a dedicated following the old fashioned way: one new believer at a time. 

Trevor Reichman:
"Reichman writes songs of disarming simplicity. The directness of his lyrics and of his delivery can hit the listener with an unexpected force. The care, the humility and the quiet attention to building a home in the desert are also hallmarks of Reichman’s songs." - The Cenizo Journal
"A picture perfect snapshot of gothic country and Americana” - KAOS Radio - Austin, TX.
“A killer songwriter. A real one-of-a-kind, dark, funny, spot-on.” -Jonathan Byrd


EARL GENE BEACH
Was born Nov. 8th, 1925 and married June Sue Corley Dec. 7, 1947 which would have been 65 years. Amazing.  We were blessed to have them live here for a while and have missed them since their move to Richardson, to be close to their children. We in Terlingua were honored to have attended their 60thanniversary held at La Kiva a few years back. Earl passed away November 9th, the day after his 87th birthday. Earl was a super man in every sense of the word.  He was an avid bicycle rider well into his 80s. He had the cutest sense of humor and was always a happy guy.  He was famous for his great hugs. Earl is survived by his wife Sue, their 2 sons and 7 grandchildren.
Cards may be sent to:

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
AA meetings are held at the Baptist Church on Thurs at 7:30 p.m.

Al-Anon meets Mon at 7:00. Al-Anon follows the same principles as A.A. with a different focus . Al-Anon meetings are for anyone whose life has been affected by someone else’s drinking now or in the past. Their meetings are open to those who have or have had a problem of alcoholism in their family or among their friends.
