It's fiesta time

in Pecos again

Return to Menu

The 16th of September Fiestas are almost upon us. And for all you who
love to eat, there will be plenty of food booths at the this year's

Regardless of whether we know the real reason for the celebration, the
fiestas here in Pecos have always been something to look forward to for
people of all ages.

Certainly the entertainment is something to view, with different dance
groups, not only from Pecos, but from other areas, performing.

The fiestas are a tradition, not only in Pecos, but in other communities
where people celebrate the independence of Mexico from Spain. Even
though, Hispanics are the first ones to note this special event, the
fiestas are for everyone to come out and enjoy.

Special booths will be providing gift items, t-shirts, novelties and of
course everyone's favorite, FOOD!

There will be three days of fun and entertainment set up in front of the
Santa Rosa Church. Three days when you don't have to wonder what to make
for dinner. Just come out and enjoy yourselves and pick up some
delicious food products while sponsoring a local event.

You don't have to love mariachi music either, or be a big fan of those
folklorico dancers, but it's guaranteed that something worth your time
will be waiting at the parking lot.

Events will kick off on Friday evening and Saturday morning a parade
will go through downtown Pecos.

Other activities taking place throughout the weekend will include the
coronation of the queens. Other groups include Esmi Talamantes y Viento
Loco, an up and rising star, formerly from Pecos and Golden Girl Lindley

If you find yourself with nothing to do this weekend, visit the Fiestas.
You just might enjoy yourself!

Man unhappy with

143rd District Court

Return to Menu

Dear Editor,

If you want justice done, make sure that you don't go to 143rd District
Court, you won't be getting a fair and impartial judge.

I have just been run through the grinder with the honorable 143rd
District Court Judge, BOB PARKS, this is the second time that he has
screwed me up, you might think, that someone in his position should
respect the bench, by being fair and just, NO WAY.

In my case, sueing under the Americans with Disabilities Act against
LEC, now Reeves County Detention Center, he wouldn't allow testimony
from my defense witness' rather he would send the jury out of the court
room, so they wouldn't listen to what the witness had to say, then he
would advise the attorneys not to bring anything that was said after the
jury was brought back in. Now you tell me if that is justice?

I don't blame the jury, because they didn't get to hear the whole facts
because of the censorship the judge imposed.

So beware, remember 143rd District Court with BOB PARKS presiding, he is
the judge and jury, believe me.

In today's Pecos Enterprise, (Sept. 11, 1996), J.J. Garcia, who was
personnel officer at the time, states that the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission investigated the discrimination claim, found that
I had no case. Then why do I have to copy from the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission, dated 8-30-95, NOTICE OF RIGHT TO SUE, when he
claims to be the opposite?

I'll be more than glad to show proof of this letter to anyone wishing to
see and read it. This is just another scam from what is done at the
administrative offices of LEC and now RCDC.
