Two months before the November mid-term election, a selective few KWMC listeners of Town Talk Live specifically made a verbal point to articulate that I am different. That is a realization that I came to understand by the age of three when I could ride a bicycle without training wheels and I wore cowboy boots to bed. Their remarks were not a reaction to my wardrobe but primarily due to my conservative viewpoint. Webster’s definition of difference is ‘a point or way in which people or things are not the same.’ The synonyms include contrast, distinction, and variance. Some listeners have an overall general problem and concern with the above. They would prefer a more ratified, common uniform message for their personal political taste.
Friday, September 21st a business leader contacted the station owner in regards to something I said on Town Talk Live. Usually, the disagreement or feedback from an individual comes directly to me during the broadcast. That is the whole essence of the show. Yet while I shared why I do not support Beto O’Rourke for the U.S. Senate candidacy, the highly agitated business leader fired a text message to Guillermo Garza, critical of Ken Herrera and me regarding our discussion of Beto. Guillermo sent the text to us why still on the air. I prefer to respond over the air while on KWMC, after all the show is not “Town Text Live”, and at the time I chose not to.
I’m a bit suspicious why the business leader responded to Guillermo instead of us. Perhaps, this individual was applying the pressure for a reprimand, clarification or an apology for not drinking the Del Rio Democrat Kool-Aid. The text message did not suggest that at all. It was critical of us being too much like Fox News. I find that remark hilarious. Fox News does not take names for the H-E-B Heavenly Delight Birthday cake on Friday’s. However it was the method which hits a sore spot with me. The business leader did not participate on the show in regards to my political beliefs, but to question my presentation with the station owner.
I’m not going to publicly announce the name of the business leader. If the individual wishes to appear on the air with us, they are more than welcome, as anyone in this community. But I will not refrain from my difference or dissimilarity of what is perceived as the “local majority” on how I choose to vote or what I think. My job for two hours a week is to engage the audience in matters of Del Rio and talk about them. I have another responsibility at the station, keeping the listeners tuned to KWMC for another day of conversation. I do believe I’m pretty good at what I do. Friday got the attention of a business leader who chose to share his thoughts of variance with KWMC ownership.
Our statements on that September Friday were not highly critical of Beto O’Rourke at all. None were nasty as the multitudes on social media and political message boards. In fact, we did say Beto had run an aggressive, grass roots campaign. Senator Ted Cruz took a real jab at the first U.S. Senate debate in Dallas calling it a “254 county photo op with the press in tow.”
What was said confirmed my conservative views in a nut shell. Our Constitutional 2nd Amendment right, reduction within the Federal government and taxes, a fundamental right to life for the unborn, the abolishment of universal-social medicine, and a secure border that defines this nation’s sovereignty. As I recall, I also said that any blue wave millennial who doesn’t understand my views and shouts them down without discussion suffers from delusions of grandeur and should be branded as Liberal Fascism.
To the business leader of concern: First, yes I’m different. I’m a white male in my 50’s who votes conservative and lives in Del Rio. In other words, in Val Verde County, I’m a minority. Minorities in the United States have the same 1st Amendment rights as the majority within the community. My expression of beliefs is not limited by the Val Verde Democrat Party majority, whether I was born here or not (as long as I’m an American citizen) the church or parish where I worship (or choose not to) or the color of my skin.
Second, I can’t fathom to think if text messaging was the only 21st century technology to have been in existence while Jay, Madison, and Hamilton contributed to the Federalist Papers. If that sole petitioner had stopped the presses through a tweet, the United States would not have made it through Franklin Pierce’s presidency. (the second most divided time in our nation’s 242 year history next to present day). If the consequences of an editor reaction to a hypothetical 18th century text message would have occurred, the generations which survived through it all today would live in a very poor agrarian society filled with famine and filth. It was Freedom of Speech and the Fourth Estate that became the bedrock of a very young nation.
This scenario reminds me of something I once read by Steven Covey: “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand. They listen with the intent to reply.” Touché local business leader. There was no intention of understanding on your part in September. It was just a reply. If you wish to engage in the conversation, please be our guest. I hope someday you truly understand the definition difference. As the old adage goes’ every man has the right to utter what he thinks truth, and every other man has a right to knock him down for it. Meanwhile, I will choose to remain ‘different.’

What would Jesus tell you if he was sitting next to you at this moment?
Would He tell you that you need to take that first step to change your life?
Would He say, focus on Him and he will get you through it?
Would he tell you no matter what, no matter if you fail, no matter if you fall flat on your face, that he isn’t leaving you?
And even more important, Are We Listening?
If you have Food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of all the people in the world.
If You have Money in The Bank, in your wallet and spare change in a dish, You are among the Top 8% of the Worlds Wealthy,
If you read this on Your Computer You Are Part Of The 1% in the World who has that opportunity.
If You Woke Up This Morning With More Health Than Illness You Are More Blessed Than The Many Who Will Not Survive This Day.
If You’ve Never Experienced The Fear Of Battle, The Loneliness of imprisonment, the Agony or Torture. Or the Pangs Of Starvation. You Are Ahead Of 700 Million People In This World.
If You Can Hold Your Head U And Smile You Are Not The Norm, Your Unique To All Those In Doubt and Despair.
Thank You LORD for giving me the Ability To Share This Message And For Giving Me So Many Friends To Share It With.
Give Thanks these days for everything we’re blessed with. Even the smallest gifts are a blessing that may some day turn in to greater ones.
Just Another Point of View.
A Keto diet is one that consists of high fat (70-80% of calories), relatively high protein (20-25% of calories) and low carbohydrates (5-10% of calories). It is typically made up of animal-based foods – below is a dot point summary. However, There is no living population that displays longevity having consumed a Ketogenic diet.
A vegan or plant-based diet is typically made up of 55-60% of calories from carbohydrates, 20-25% of calories from protein and 15-25% of calories from fat.
What are the main differences?
On a Vegan Diet you can consume;
Whole grains (brown rice, wild rice, black rice, oats, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, corn), Legumes (chickpeas, lentils, black beans, fava beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, soy beans etc) Starchy and non-starchy whole vegetables (potato, sweet potato, carrot, broccoli, eggplant, pumpkin, zucchini, dark leafy greens), Whole fruits (all), Plant milk (almond, soy, hemp, macadamia, pea, etc.), Nuts & seeds in moderation, Oils in moderation (olive, coconut, avocado)
Does not include: Animal products (butter, ghee, meat, fish, eggs, cheese, cow milk, etc.), Many saturated fats, Processed oils (or if it does, minimal).
On a KETO Diet you can consume;
Meat: Beef, Pork, Fish, Chicken, Eggs, Cheese, Milk, Nuts & Seeds, Oils & Fats (mainly avocado, coconut oil, ghee, butter and olive oil), Vegetables (typically limited to dark green leafy vegetables & mushrooms), Fruit (berries in moderation)
Does not include: Starchy vegetables (sweet potato, pumpkin, legumes, etc.), Grains (oats, rice, quinoa, corn, buckwheat, rye, barley), Fruits such as banana, mango, pineapple, apples, oranges.
Keep in mind. Animal protein and fats have been clearly shown to increase your risk of various chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. So by choosing a Keto diet, you are attempting to induce a calorie deficit for a weight loss result while jeopardizing your long term health. Studies have looked into and shown links between chronic Ketosis, a state of acidosis, and increased risk of developing certain cancers.
Something to consider for certain. Happy, Healthy Eating.
“No pretendo cambiar el mundo, pero en el pedacito que me tocó vivir, quiero hacer la diferencia”. “nacimos para ser felices, no para ser perfectos... los días buenos te dan felicidad, los días malos te dan experiencia, los intentos te mantienen fuerte, las pruebas te mantienen humano, las caídas te mantienen humilde, pero solo Dios te mantiene de pie!... No esperes a que venga un poeta para hacerte un aviso que diga lo maravillosa que es tu vida, tu hogar, tu familia y lo que con tanto trabajo hoy posees. Dale gracias a Dios porque tienes vida, salud y esperanza de poder seguir luchando para alcanzar tus metas... Que el Señor bendiga ese pedacito de cielo que es tu vida...”. (Fredy Monte Verde).
Necesitamos aprender a decir con mayor frecuencia: gracias, te amo, eres importante para mí, perdóname, ayúdame. Necesitamos no perder la capacidad de asombro, de saber valorar la vida, la familia, las personas, la salud, el trabajo, de poder contemplar las maravillas que hay a nuestro alrededor. Necesitamos advertir que estamos en un paraíso, que nuestro Artífice es absoluto; nos ha hecho con tanta perfección y nos ha puesto en medio de un todo en marcha, en evolución y dinamismo. Necesitamos aprender a vivir, aprender a ser agradecidos.
No podemos dejarnos llevar por la rutina, no podemos dejarnos absorber por el trabajo, por la superficialidad, por la ingratitud, por la vaciedad y por el negativismo. Necesitamos ser conscientes de lo que somos, tenemos, podemos, recibimos, necesitamos y fallamos para decir constantemente:
¡Te Amo!: “El hombre no puede vivir sin amor. Él permanece para sí mismo un ser incomprensible, su vida está privada de sentido si no se le revela el amor, si no se encuentra con el amor, si no lo experimenta y lo hace propio, si no participa de él vivamente. El amor se siente, no se ve; el amor silencioso es el más fuerte de todos” (San Juan Pablo II). Ningún ser humano puede encontrar la verdadera felicidad si no se siente amado y si no es capaz de amar.
¡Perdóname!: nos cuesta reconocer nuestros errores, pero que importante es pedir perdón por nuestras equivocaciones. No sabemos que poder tan grande y sanador tiene el decir sinceramente perdóname, me equivoqué.
¡Tú eres muy importante!: tienes cualidades, talentos, facilita mi vivir, me ayudas con lo que haces. Necesitamos que se reconozcan las metas o los logros alcanzados.
¡Ayúdame!: no tengamos miedo, venzamos el orgullo y digámosle a la otra persona que necesito de ella. Yo no puedo solo; necesito de los demás, como ellos necesitan de mí. Hemos sido creados para vivir en relación con otros.
¡Gracias!: recibimos mucho y debemos estar agradecidos. No nos podemos imaginar que tan bien se siente alguien al advertir que son valorados sus esfuerzos, sus luchas, sus sacrificios, el amor que le pone a lo que hace. Frecuentemente nos acostumbramos a pedir, a mandar, a recibir y olvidamos agradecer. “La gratitud es un sentimiento, emoción o actitud de reconocimiento de un beneficio que se ha recibido o recibirá”. El Señor nos pide la gratitud, eso lo vimos en el texto de los diez leprosos curados: Respondiendo Jesús, dijo: ¿No fueron diez los que quedaron limpios? Y los otros nueve, ¿dónde están? ¿No hubo ninguno que regresara a dar gracias a Dios, excepto este extranjero? (Lucas 17, 17-18)
Si somos capaces de dar gracias a nuestro prójimo, seremos capaces de dar gracias a Dios. ¿Que más nos dice la Biblia al respecto?
• Den gracias al Señor por su misericordia y sus maravillas para con los hombres. (Salmo 107, 8)
• Doy gracias a Dios cada vez que me acuerdo de ti, en todas mis oraciones oro por todos ustedes, siempre oro con alegría. (Filipenses 1, 3-4)
• Cuando hayas comido y estés satisfecho, Alaba al Señor tu Dios por la buena tierra que te ha dado. (Deuteronomio 8, 10)
• Estén siempre alegres, oren sin cesar, den gracias en todo, porque esta es la voluntad de Dios para con vosotros en Cristo Jesús. (1 Tesalonicenses 5, 16-18)
Seamos agradecidos, positivos y valoremos lo que tenemos. Esforcémonos por que haya mayor amabilidad y capacidad de reconocer todo lo bueno que hay. Vivimos en un hermoso paraíso y recibimos tanto de los que están a nuestro alrededor y frecuentemente no somos capaces de disfrutar al dejarnos llevar por la rutina, la inconciencia y la ingratitud. Seamos más diligentes, conscientes y agradecidos. Dios los bendiga. Sady Pbro.
LOS ANGELES, California –
Just in time for the Halloween and Day of the Dead season, Rogue Paperbacks and its sister division Rogue Paperbacks Español is launching the The Wolftress, the first novel by author Joseph Treviño.
For Treviño, a seasoned journalist who is a former editor of the Del Rio News-Herald, the daily newspaper of border town Del Rio, Texas, the publishing of The Wolftress is a dream come true, he said. Years in the making, he describes his novel as a “lean, mean straightforward horror western which is small, but with big dreams.”
The novel is based on Ana María García “La Lobera,” an obscure but true historical figure of Spanish 17th Century history. Hailing from the town of Posada de Llanes, Asturias, La Lobera was a woman who according to the archives of the Spanish Inquisition, caused terror in several parts of Asturias—she allegedly commanded a group of wolves to attack at will.
After the Inquisition sentenced her for being a witch and a Satanist, La Lobera was freed after taking some Christianity courses. After that, Ana María disappeared.
But, according to Joseph Treviño’s novel, some believe La Lobera fled to avoid possible reprisals from the Inquisition or others and may have migrated to a place where some Northern Spaniards went: Mexico.
Specifically to a rural region that somewhat resembles Asturias: Los Altos de Jalisco, where many Spaniards from the north kept much of their traditions and where La Lobera found a new life.
Even before the novel went to print, many who have read and reviewed the novel are praising it as one of the best reads of the genre of the last decades. One of the champions of the novel is Eduardo Yáñez, the Mexican superstar who is based in Hollywood and has had lead roles in telenovelas like Destilando Amor and in Hollywood movies like The Punisher. Yáñez, says he admires The Wolftress and believes the novel is a force of nature that should be turned into a major motion picture.
“A truly original and terrifying novel. It has reinvented the werewolf legend by taking it back to its real roots,” Yáñez said.
of the Witch
Treviño, who is originally from Los Angeles (and currently lives there) just returned from a promo tour of The Wolftress in Rome and Northern Spain, where the media covered the launch of the book. The author also retraced part of the footsteps of La Lobera in Asturias, Los Picos de Europa (The Peaks of Europe), Oviedo, Spain and the beautiful green trails of Asturias and the holy sites of Covadonga, as well as the witch mountains of Northern Spain.
Written under the undeniable influence of novelists like Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, Stephen King, J.R.R. Tolkien and Taylor Caldwell, The Wolftress, is a full-tilt Horror Western, fast-paced book that reads like an old school, 1980’s horror pulp.
While other writers have taken the werewolf to the realm of the fantasy genre, Treviño chose to go back to the true roots of the legend. No werewolf pretty boys here like in some recent books or movies—instead it’s true novel that is as honest as jab to the jaw.
“The real werewolves of history were pure terror. The Wolftress tries to bring back the lycanthropy legends with all their in your face glory,” Trevino says. “Werewolves are unapologetic. The Wolftress tries to show them as they truly are.”
From Northern Spain
to the Highlands of Jalisco
Based in Mexico, in the region known as Los Altos de Jalisco, The Wolftress tells the story of Peter Crane, a young college student who wants to become a real working cowboy. For that he travels to Mexico, where he finds work in an isolated town in the mountains of Los Altos de Jalisco.
Under the command of “El Rural” (The Ranger), an ex old west style cop turned rancher, Crane and a group of Mexican and American cowboys face the horror that terrorizes the mysterious town of San Miguel de la Sierra.
“The Wolftress is an old-fashioned, 80’s style pulp horror novel,” Trevino said. “I want to give people a good scare. Period.”
The novel is available in Kindle in digital version and on Ebay in print version from Rogue Paperbacks at the novel’s website: http://thewolftress.com/

Face to Face with the past
It was once written that the late Del Rio artist, Consuelo “Chelo” González Amézcua, was a naive visionary, seemingly implying that she knows not what she did. However, one glance at her work and one pass through her history clearly indicate that the use of a word defined “as lack of experience, wisdom or judgment” is a gross misnomer; erroneous.
So, it is the present’s duty to correct the past’s errors. But let’s start a few months back; give this narrative some context. While digging for research in a file cabinet at the Whitehead Memorial Museum (for a piece on the Border Radio) I came across a manila folder labeled “Gonzalez, Chelo.” I would have skipped over it but a slightly yellowing page from the San Antonio Express-News was protruding and I was able to see “Del Rio artist...Smithsonian exhibit.” The words “artist” and “Smithsonian” aren’t commonly found in the same sentence. Naturally, this piqued my interest. After anxiously consuming the contents of the folder, I soon realized that Del Rio had been home to an artistic icon who, unfortunately, experienced the proverbial 15 minutes of Andy Warhol-defined fame. Actually, you could argue that she should have been as revered and renown as Mr. Pop Art. Anyhow, I quickly decided Del Rio needed a reunion with the artist known as “Chelo.” Anything but would be an injustice. And voila, an article was born. A completely self-taught artist, González’ works were amazingly created in the 1960s with a pedestrian ballpoint pen and cardboard. Amazingly, she was already rolling through her sixties by then.
According to the Express-News article, each drawing required nearly 90 hours of labor spanning a period of 18 days. Hers had to be a cathartic labor of love. The specific work that compelled people to take note was “ABen-amar the Christian,” a drawing steeped in medieval Spanish culture, Moorish structural sensibilities and Arabic designs. It is now housed at the Smithsonian American Art Museum along with “Untitled” and “Prince Abu Zabi y Su Jardin.,” the latter two created in a style similar to “ABen-amar the Christian.” González referred to her artistic creations as “filigree drawings” in reference to a jewelry making style used in Mexico. Born in Piedras Negras, González received only six years of formal education and was working at a dime store when her art was discovered by Dr. Amy Freeman Lee. Lee had given an art lecture at the Val Verde County Library in 1967, and after the talk, she was honored at the home of a local resident. While at the home she noticed one of González’ paintings and was mesmerized. In 1968, the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio hosted Chelo’s first exhibition where every item was sold.
Her art was subsequently featured in a multitude of exhibitions at prominent galleries from Austin to New York as well as Mexico. Four of her drawings were included in a one-year national tour sponsored by Illinois Bell Telephone. Chelo’s subject matter was a reflection of her varied interests. In particular, Ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology and Christian themes. What was unusually satisfying about her artwork was the accompaniment of poetry. “ABen-amar the Christian” was complemented with a poem that told the story of a captured Christian woman and the son of a Moor who converted to Christianity. A bio written for a González exhibition at the Galerias Paco in New York stated that Chelo had painted a work on the Texcoco poet and king, Nezahualcoyotl.
Poetry with art is normally associated with Asian artistic practices but Chelo displayed an uncanny and high degree of art intelligence. “She intuitively knew of that tradition and, like the Chinese, wasn’t afraid to include a poem as part of her work,” said Lee in the San Antonio Express-News article. Chelo passed away in 1975 but the impact of her art carried on until the Smithsonian’s acceptance of her work in the early 1990s. After that, her legacy and magnetic oeuvres seemed to have been purloined by time and artistic apathy. This article aims to steal them back.
American Graffiti movie mistakes, first of all Wolfman Jack was not African American, and it is the first time that finally the rest of the world got to see him on the silver screen with the exception of Del Rio Texas back in 1966.
The Wolfman was just a radio personality that used to broadcast from the Border Blaster know as XERF in Acuna Mexico, and we knew he wasn’t Black, but that’s another story. We or the ones that remember can still recall the original name of Bob Smith’s show.
It was called the Howling Rooster Show and not The Wolfman Jack Show or any other name. But then back to the movie, American Graffiti was a movie about the last days or nights about crusing the boulevards and hanging out with friends. The year takes place in 1962 but there are so many mistakes that at the time of the movie in 1973 people didn’t catch some of the bloopers. Who was in charge of the musical soundtrack?
There are songs in the movie that were not included in the double lp. There are songs that did not come out in or before 1962 and you can clearly hear them and they were from years later. But whether they were the wrong songs, wrong cars, or wrong old time radio commercials, American Graffiti was a movie that was shot with a very low budget and we can accept that there were gonna be lots of errors. Since it’s release in 1973 it has become a classic over the years. Other similar movies followed, but it was American Graffiti that gave the shot in the arm to remember all of the good times when things and life were more simple. And don’t forget Crusin Nights, which probably don’t exist anymore except in maybe some areas of America, Rock’N’Roll still rolls on.
Find out more about the movie and the Wolfman and the nostalgic cars and the innocence of American life in the early 60’s as we look at this time period through the eyes of American teenagers and the early years of Rock’N’Roll.
