Opinion: The Pope's Message of Peace Must Go On.

Interview: Ann Morgan Lilly, Candidate EP # 1.

Ann Lilly is a political newcomer and is reaching beyond her Rim Area Neighborhood Association to bring all District # 1 residents a person who will listen and work out solutions to the problems.

Ms. Lilly has a vision of what El Paso and specifically the Westside/Upper Valley can be.... again. Her family held office in El Paso during its heydays and she is concerned about El Paso's decline of quality of life.

Negative "Ad" Targets Ric Schecter

It seemed very suspicious. As we indicated last edition; Ric Schecter, Candidate District # 1 was the target of a negative campaign attack editorial by Martin Paredas in the El Paso Tribune. At the same time Paredas ran a "featured article" which turned out to be nothing more than a free ad, allowing Schector's opponent Roy Gray to "publish" his own campaign speech. Was this by coincidence? We didn't think so.

Spring Sunset Ablaze.

The wonderful winter sunsets have ended and we begin to see our more familiar warm glow sunsets. What makes the difference is the cloud formation and textures. Enlarge Photo
