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

“You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks.” —Dorothy Parker
Itinerant Printer Chris Fritton
Menagerie Press in the Terlingua Ghost Town is hosting Itinerant Printer Chris Fritton. Chris will visit letterpress print shops across America throughout 2015, producing unique prints at each venue culled from their idiosyncratic collections of wood type, metal type, cuts, ornaments, and polymer plates. These prints will be mailed back to followers and supporters of the project as postcards from the road.
   SO…  Come join Menagerie Press for a presentation by Chris, printing demonstrations, and all-round open house. There will be beer, beans and bread on the patio. 4-8 pm, Tuesday, April 7. You are welcome to join in with music, food or just you. The Press is located next to the Santa Ynez Church behind the Starlight. Please no dogs.

Even though the Big Bend sector accounts for only 3 percent of methamphetamine, 2 percent of marijuana, 1 percent of heroin and 0 percent of cocaine seized by law enforcement from January 2013 through May 2014, bills in Congress target the Border Patrol’s Big Bend sector with substantial additional security forces/facilities.

Alpine Animal Shelter
Like many of the 30 dogs at the Alpine Animal Shelter (AAS), SYDNEY makes you wonder, “why is she still here?”  The answer is ONLY that the shelter gets very little traffic!.... SYDNEY is a smart, healthy, attentive and affectionate female heeler mix, ~45 lbs, 2 1/2 years old, short-haired and light colored (red spots on white). She has that heeler focus and stay-by-your-sidedness. She comes when called, walks well on a leash, is house trained, fetches a ball, adores human affection, and is friendly with kids, dogs of all ages, and cats.... She needs a hero to spring her free and would love that hero to give her an active life. Is it you? AAS is open M-F from 10am to 6pm, located on the east side of Alpine on Old Marathon Road. Come see SYDNEY or the other great dogs there! SYDNEY (and all the dogs at AAS) are on Petfinder at: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/31423869. For more info, email heatherthemule@gmail.com.

Big Bend Library Program
Don’t miss this program on Thursday, April 23 at 6 pm in the Big Bend Library. Paul and Voni Glaves have been avid motorcycle travelers since the 1970s.  They have ridden BMW motorcycles in all 50 states, all of the Canadian provinces and territories reachable by road, and in several foreign countries.  Fresh from retirement - she as a teacher, he as a Community Development Director - they were considering rejoining the workforce to become motorcycle tour guides. As a result they accompanied Ayres Adventures on three different motorcycle tours, for almost two months, in southern Africa. They rode in South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.  Always avid photographers, they took a few thousand photos while in Africa. They have distilled them down to one hundred or so to help them illustrate and explain the adventure.

Trial date set in Felts murder case
A trial date has been set in the case against a man accused of killing a well-known Terlingua bar owner. Justin Low, the defense lawyer for Tony Flint, said the trial date is scheduled for April 27 in Sierra Blanca. A venue change had previously been requested. Flint was originally charged Feb. 5, 2014, with first-degree murder in connection with the death of La Kiva bar owner Glenn Felts. Flint was released Feb. 25 on a $200,000 bond. Part of his bond includes not being allowed within 30 miles of the Texas-Mexico border—barring him from Terlingua completely—and would have to stay in Brewster County or adjacent counties.

Nine Illegals Apprehended in Brewster County
Nine undocumented Mexican Nationals were apprehended by the Brewster County Sheriff’s Office April 1. According to the Brewster County Sheriff’s Office Facebook Page, the Mexican Nationals were apprehended in the Black Gap area of Brewster County. According to the report, the U.S. Border Patrol lost sign of the group. But after wandering around in the desert for several hours, they were spotted by area residents who notified the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to the scene and the group of nine were found. According to the post, it appeared that some of the males may be involved in gang activities.
    Officials say large groups of illegal border crossers have been seen in the areas of Brewster, Presidio, Terrell and Culberson County. The case is still under investigation.

HAPPY TRAILS TO DAVE BENCE OF STUDY BUTTE RV.  Best wishes to you as you leave Terlingua for your next adventure.--
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells,
past temples and castles and poets' towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags,
where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.    
- Edward Abbey

BOOGIE is a 3 month-old heeler mix.  He's a typical working-dog-breed puppy: alert, athletic, and very cuddly, wiggly and playful.  This guy could do any job you give to him, even if that job is fetching a ball every day for a good amount of time, or learning to high five and roll over.  BOOGIE plays king of the mountain on a human lap, and is willing to share that lap with other pups.  He was found with his friend Peach, much smaller than him, and he treats her tenderly, so it's clear that BOOGIE will be a good friend to everyone. 
His $100 adoption fee includes sterilization, microchipping and all shots and vaccines. The Alpine Animal Shelter is open M-F from 10am to 6pm (closed 1-2pm) and by appointment on the weekends, located just east of Alpine on Old Marathon Road. All AAS animals are online at https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=TX1202

Centennial Showcase
In honor of the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service, Big Bend National Park will host a Centennial Showcase Event at Rio Grande Village Group Campground on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event highlights the diversity of work activities that National Park Service employees perform in Big Bend. Activity stations feature trail crew demonstrations, wildland fire engine, road machinery, mule team, bird watching challenge, river camp set-up, and much more.

According to Superintendent Cindy Ott-Jones, “There are many behind-the-scenes facets to protecting our park resources and providing visitor services at Big Bend.  We want to demonstrate some of those work activities and highlight what the National Park Service does here at Big Bend and throughout the country.”

A number of partners will also be on hand to share their contributions and involvement with Big Bend.  Among those participating will be Big Bend Conservancy, Boquillas Village, Big Bend Natural History Association, and Maderas del Carmen Protected Area.  In addition, staff from McDonald Observatory will offer solar viewing with a special telescope, and Fort Davis National Historic Site will invite visitors to step back in history with late 1880s-era soldier activities.

There will be free souvenirs for visitors, and a free lunch will be provided by the Chisos Mountain Lodge, a Forever Resorts Property, to those participating in the Showcase activities.  The menu will include hamburgers, hot dogs, and barbequed pork.

“The Centennial Showcase is just one of several events that Big Bend will offer throughout the year to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service,” said Bryan Frohbieter, Centennial Coordinator for the park.

“It’s also important for us to express appreciation to our visitors for their on-going support of Big Bend and the National Park Service.”

Activities begin at 10 a.m. and will conclude at 2 p.m.  Visitors are encouraged to bring water, a hat, and sunscreen.  This event is offered free of charge; park entrance fees apply.

The Latest from La Kiva
Today is St. Patrick’s day and it is also the day that the great people at Dellco completed the ductwork they were building for us and came to complete the installation of the hoods.  While delivering the ductwork they brought with them most of the remaining items to complete the equipment line up.

That leaves us with two more steps to final completion of the kitchen.  Step one is to get the ANSUL system installed (that’s the fire suppression system and is essential if we are to have insurance on the property).  Step two is to get the approval of the health inspector.  We have been very careful to work with the inspector at every step of the way and expect this to be both simple and easy.  All in all, we feel are now in good shape.

This morning I was in the kitchen making sure that everything was on track.  We had three kitchen installers, two electricians, one cook, one handyman, one cleaner, myself and three dogs including a Great Dane in the kitchen at one time.  If we had any more help we would need a bigger kitchen.

The ANSUL installers are the last delay and they are scheduled to be on site on the 28th, 29th and 30th of March.  That means that we are really close to being fully functional.

The next big thing is to have you sample our food.

Roxy is a 6-year old dog who would probably settle for just the basics but deserves so much more. Roxy gets along with other dogs, love snuggles, and is quiet and well-mannered in her kennel. She knows her name, comes when called, and walks well on a leash. Roxy would absolutely blossom if showered with love and attention, the comforts of an indoor life and the opportunity to be fully welcomed into a forever family. Roxy is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all shots. Her adoption fee is $50 this week. The Alpine Animal Shelter is open M-F from 10am to 6pm (closed 1-2pm) and by appointment on the weekends, located on the east side of Alpine on Old Marathon Road. AAS animals are online at https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=TX1202
