FOR YOU MERCHANTS/AIRBNB FOLKS

Here are some tips on taking checks and avoiding getting burned by the hot ones. NO out of state checks, EVER. Write on the check the person’s TEXAS driver’s license number and their DATE OF BIRTH. Without BOTH of those pieces of info, it’s hard to go after them. When you get a bad check, come see me at the J.P. office and I’ll give you some additional paperwork and you might (no guarantee) get your money. Jim Burr

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won.
There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.

This week at La Kiva:
We hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth of July, and to celebrate the event we will be offering drinks specials - Black Velvet and Paloma.
Introducing new weekly Pizza Specials on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Fish & Chips are still a great favorite and our Steaks are spectacular.  Provoleta Argentina is very popular and for a light meal, Mushrooms stuffed with crab in a cream sauce are excellent.
Wednesday, Fourth of July, Tim Relleva will be playing his wonderful guitar music.
Thursday, Chet O'Keefe will be playing his amazing original songs and guitar music.
Friday and Saturday, we will have Karaoke.

An appeal to all our friends who might remember.  When we first came to BBNP in 1982, winter camping in The Basin, we came across a lot of $1 bills with "La Kiva" stamped on them in blue.  We were told that this had been done by Gill Felts who had recently opened a new bar in Terlingua called "La Kiva" and we must go there.  We did, and after that, every time we visited this area we came to La Kiva and were enchanted.  Knowing how people like to hang on to interesting memorabilia, I wonder if anyone out there still can find one of these bills.  We would love to have one framed in the bar, to add to the other reminders of the spectacular past surrounding La Kiva.  We think it would really add to the atmosphere and remind everyone of the very special imagination of a very special man.

Eight candidates have filed for the July 31 special election to replace former state Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio, — including his brother, outgoing state Rep. Tomas Uresti, according to the secretary of state's office.
The deadline was 5 p.m. Monday, and among the eight candidates who filed, there are four Democrats, three Republicans and one Libertarian. The candidates had a short window to file — Gov. Greg Abbott announced the special election five days ago.
The contest will determine who will fill the seat of Carlos Uresti, who resigned Thursday after being found guilty earlier this year of 11 felonies related to fraud and money laundering. Uresti is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.
The list of candidates includes two prominent Democrats who were already running for Carlos Uresti's seat before he resigned: state Rep. Roland Gutierrez of San Antonio and former U.S. Rep. Pete Gallego of Alpine. The fourth Democrat who filed is Charlie Urbina Jones, a Poteet attorney who unsuccessfully ran for Texas' 23rd Congressional District in the 1990s.
The three Republicans who filed are Pete Flores, who unsuccessfully challenged Carlos Uresti in 2016; Jesse "Jay" Alaniz, the former president of the Harlandale ISD board; and Carlos Antonio Raymond, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for House District 117 in March. The Libertarian candidate is Tony Valdivia, a senior reporting analyst at USAA Bank.
The winner of the special election will finish Carlos Uresti's term, which ends January 2021. Early voting begins July 16.

He said if I could write a song I believe I'd be a king/ but it took him twenty years until he got the nerve/ he's got boxes full of papers and papers full of words/ and the words fly away like swallows on the wind/ but they never flew back to the nest again/ never took him to the place where the dream begins/ — Tom Russell “Where the Dream Begins”

FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER EVENT, Saturday, June 30 at noon, Brewster County Courthouse lawn, Alpine, TX 79830. Hosted by Amelie U. Please stand together against the Trump administration's cruel practice of separating children and parents when they attempt to enter the United States seeking asylum. As a border community, this practice is close to home. We need to send a clear message to the world that we as Americans, as fellow citizens of the world, oppose this practice and we won't be silent.
Directions: Brewster County Courthouse is located in Alpine at the corner of Avenue E and N. 6th St. Families Belong Together - Big Bend  Sign up to Attend

WASHINGTON, DC – Prior to the House vote on the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018, U.S. Representative Will Hurd issued the following statement:
“I have long advocated for securing our nation’s borders and providing a permanent legislative fix for DACA recipients, but this proposal does not accomplish either goal,” said Hurd, who represents more of the U.S.-Mexico border than any other Member of Congress. “Furthermore, I cannot support a bill that fails to effectively address family separations at the border, establishes a long and winding road for DACA recipients at the expense of existing visa programs and doubles down on an expensive and ineffective 4th century border security tool that takes private property away from hundreds of Texans. I’ve said time and time again that a long-term solution must be bipartisan, and I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle so that we can actually solve these problems once and for all." Hurd also met with ambassadors from El Salvador and Honduras to discuss the ongoing immigration crises: weblink.

"On Fathers Day, I think of the more than 11,000 children separated from their parents and detained at the border under new zero-tolerance enforcement. In our names, we are becoming a cruel, draconian, oppressive country. On our watch, we are using torture as a tactic to close our borders. Think of the same happening to you as a parent, or you as a child. I take responsibility for this. These are my laws, this is my government. Blame can be thrown any direction, but the truth remains, what we are doing to these families is unconscionable. Spreading hate and fear, sending a signal to the world that this kind of reprehensible behaviour is acceptable, is rotten to the core. Is this who we are? Is this what we now represent?" Craig Childs

Big Bend National Park – Following rains this past week, Big Bend National Park’s fire danger has been reduced to Moderate, prompting park managers to remove restrictions that had been in place to protect park visitors and park resources during the past months of extreme fire danger.
Juniper Flats, Boulder Meadows, and Pinnacles backpacking sites are now open for camping. The park additionally has removed the temporary ban on charcoal fires and smoking in the Chisos Campground. The park would like to remind visitors that while fire danger has been reduced, visitors to the park should still take care to prevent human caused wildfires. The park’s regulations prohibiting ground fires, wood fires, and smoking on trails in the Chisos Mountains are still in place.

From Will Hurd: WASHINGTON, DC – Today, S. 2397, the Senate companion to U.S. Representative Will Hurd’s DHS Data Framework Act, was unanimously approved by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. In response to this great news, Hurd released the following statement:

“It’s 2018. Our law enforcement should be able to get the right information to the right people at the right time, to keep our nation’s enemies on the run and off our shores. DHS personnel need to share information quickly without compromising our nation’s secrets, and that’s why my colleagues on both sides of the aisle unanimously approved the DHS Data Framework Act in the House,” said Hurd, who spent almost a decade as an undercover officer in the CIA and serves on the House Homeland Security Committee. “I applaud Senator Maggie Hassan for introducing the DHS Data Framework Act in the Senate and her Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee colleagues for recognizing this initiative to keep Americans safe.”
 The DHS Data Framework Act codifies an effort at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a data framework to incorporate all DHS component agency data related to homeland security, terrorist information, weapons of mass destruction, and national intelligence, into one system, thereby alleviating the current costly, cumbersome process of searching and vetting information against multiple databases with different log-ins, passwords, and legal restrictions.
