BRAVO, BRAVO ! Our incredible Community Theatre Group – LAST MINUTE LOW BUDGET PRODUCTIONS-did not disappoint.  Each of the five Summer Shorts was performed with perfection and hilarity. This editor attended the Gala performance Friday night (OMG that delicious buffet) and the evening was so special in many ways. A short intermission was taken around 8:30 p.m. for us all to go outside and watch the gorgeous Blue Moon rise; at 8:36, the International Space Station crossed the sky above us. A very happy bat made a couple of appearances, flitting around like a butterfly of the night (more about that later). Our deepest gratitude goes out to the 30 or so of our neighbors who worked very hard to make all this possible. Watch for announcements of a big FUNdraiser this fall to help make the Mercury Theater dream come true.

LORE: If a bat lives in a theater, and flies over the stage during rehearsal, the play is a guaranteed success. Zuni Indian myths, along with lore from North Carolina, Arkansas, and Illinois, all corroborate that bats flying around a chimney, or attempting to enter a building, are a sure sign of rain.  When bats nest in your home, it is one of the most powerful indications that the family is about to become seriously wealthy. The Chinese regard bats as symbols of abundant wealth. The next time bats come and nest in the eaves of your home, rejoice because this heralds good fortune.  MORE LORE: “Break a Leg”  Perhaps the saying comes—in a complicated way—from the use of “leg.”  In tech theatre, a “leg” is a curtain, and a highly successful run with repeated curtain calls could wear out the fly machinery that raises and lowers the "leg," or curtain.  “Break a leg” is (a complex!) way of expressing wishes for a show that is so great, with the audience demanding so many curtain calls, that it "breaks" that "leg" or curtain.

Thanks Buckner for your professional advice regarding a reality show crew coming to town. Lord knows we have no shortage of (uhh hmmm) eccentric locals, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  But some of them can’t distinguish fame from the consequences of the exposure to the Nation that they, and everyone who lives here, are more than a few short of a six-pack. We have plenty of the reality of the beauty of the Big Bend all around us.  The Moon actually got Letters to the Editor about the subject. Here are some of their words:  “I am hoping I am not the only one who feels this way about having a reality show in Terlingua. I think the idea is DISGUSTING. Many of us have escaped cities and madness society to this tranquil desert of ours… “  “Our desert is not a trend, not a fashion, nor a market product.”  “The news of the reality show was NOT welcome news.  The article about the show was well written and thought provoking.  Thank you for that.  Now we'll see who actually thinks before they leap, and who really wants their 15 minutes of fame.”  “…great information on the "reality show"  thanks for the warning,  hope folks pay heed to the information.”

There will be no recycling until Mindy returns to town unless someone wants to do it and then they need to get hold of her at mindyhamlett@yahoo.com and we will see what we can arrange.  I will be back hopefully sometime in late Oct. but would love to have someone else do it.
"I'm not the only volunteer at Otra Vez with a name" says Betty Reed. " We are proud of our backpack program for the school and I want to recognize those who volunteer for  Otra Vez.  Our regular crew are Cindy Burns, Suzy Ervin, Anne Lewis, Zoey Sexton & Sharon Surprenant.  Our snowbird crew are Marsha Geffert, Ruth Jansyn, Pat Long, Ruthie Oaks & Birda Policio.  I appreciate all their hard work and we all appreciate our community's donations and patronage that make Otra Vez a success."  AND THANKs to YOU ALL (ed.)

I would like to thank all the good folks who came out on yet another gorgeous day to celebrate a new year and help us raise funds for the Terlingua School activity fund.  We have (so far) $1,683.00 to donate, thanks to the good hearted community.

I would like to thank our sponsors, Lajitas Resort, The Starlight Theater and Ghostown Properties, Big Bend Motor Inn/Cafe, El Dorado and the High Sierra, La Posada Milagro Guesthouse, Easter Egg Valley Motel, La Kiva, Tivo's, Big Bend Stables, Far Flung Jeep Tours, Big Bend River Tours, and Shot Tyme Liquor Store, for making the "hot date" raffle fun and lucrative.  The winners (out of 34 entries) this year are: 1st place/Steve and Cheryl Beckett, 2nd place/ Christy Gass, and 3rd place went to the Ivey brothers.
Thank you, Pam Ware

Another order for a truck-load of water catchment tanks is being made.  There is probably enough room for at least 3 more 1,750 gallon size.  However; we are allowed to mix tank sizes on loads. Call 371-2506 and leave a message - or cell (512) 924-2506.  Do not call the 2499 number.

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.

OTRA VEZ
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

From Jalapeño Schwartz:
"We have confirmed patients having West Nile in Marfa. Buy your DEET at Dollar store while supplies last. Drain standing water, and make sure windows and doors are screened well. Don't use citronella, not effective, sorry. Majority of cases of West Nile are mild. 1 in 150 get meningeal symptoms. Risk far worse than risk from bug spray. Just use it, nothing else to say."

Recycling in Marfa AND the glass recycler in Alpine will soon be back in business and the Hal Flanders recycling center in Alpine, whose glass crusher will be in working order after a two-month      hiatus due to repairs needed. The machine was fixed with money donated toward its repair from private citizens

Otra Vez is an organization that recycles gently used clothing and small household goods.  We do not want garbage or trash.  We have no way of disposing of garbage or trash.  We do not sell items that are broken, have holes, buttons missing, ripped or covered with stains or paint.  Some inconsiderate person(s) dumped 2 pieces of worthless furniture at Otra Vez.  If this person is you, please come & get it and take it to the dump in Alpine.  We appreciate donations but not garbage or trash.

Reminder the Farmers Market starts on October 20th.  Vendors sell their locally grown food, arts and crafts in our new shade building.
Call Zoey 2172 or Shannon 3196 and let us know you will be joining us.

The basic formula for water catchment:  If you have a 1,000 sq ft roof that received 0.5 inches of rain in the last few days, it would have provided approximately 300 to 400 gallons of rainwater. One thing is certain; we WILL experience long periods of no rain at all again. The present truck-load order of catchment tanks remains half-filled.  There is room for 3 -and maybe 4- 1,750 gallon tanks, or a mix of various others. Call 2506 to reserve your tank(s) as soon as possible.

The Health Dept. will be down here for flu shots on Monday, Oct. 1st, 10 am to 2 pm at the Community Center.  $5 donations are welcomed. No one will be turned away for inability to pay and Medicare does pay for the vaccine; please bring your Medicare card
