Nichole Gomez and her Talents are being Squandered on doing the Stupid Weather!

I said it! Nichole has so much potential that it is not even funny! She has half the credentials and experience that her fellow co-workers have and she does a better job at reporting than most of them! If KVIA were to drop Stephanie Valle as the lead anchor for the CW News at 9 and replace her with Nichole, I would watch again! Or better yet, why not drop Denise Olivas from the midday show, and place Nichole in her seat! I swear that most people at KVIA have their heads up their asses! Reflecting on her time spent at KDBC aka KTSM, Nichole executed a few excellent reports/stories during her three to four year stint. It really is a shame that Nichole has been relagated to doing the weather and filling in for Doppler Dong or for Red Headed Monster Karla Smellga!

Bob Harp is an Idiot! PT II

Why would you ask the public for second hand information on an active homicide investigation? Since when did KVIA become a police agency or even Crime Stoppers for that matter? People will say whatever for a five minute appearance on TV or for a chance to meet a local celeb. What is wrong with you Bob? Are you not sleeping well? Hey Kevin get your act together and control your employees! Damn! 

Memories of the Downtown Jack in the Box(El Paso)



At one point in time I found Jack in the Box to be utterly disgusting. Sometime around 2001, my opinion of Jack in the Box changed with the Sourdough Jack. Ever since then Jack and me have been the best of friends! One Jack location that I enjoyed visiting was the Downtown location. For those that cannot recall, the Downtown Jack was located on 401 N.Oregon. It was on the first floor of the Mills parking garage. What attracted me to this location was the interior layout and design of the restaurant. It had a retro 80s look to it. From the neon signs to the stone gray colored walls, this place was stuck in the year 1987. So what else drew me to this location? The food! Those are the only two things that attracted me. But what attracted other people to this location?

I will tell you this much, it definitely wasn’t the food or the layout of the restaurant. A lot of hand to hand exchanging or shall I say dealing was taking place at this restaurant. It was so obvious as to what was taking place. Heck, even Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles could see what was occurirng. Why the manager never said anything is strange, and why someone never called the Police is beyond my comprehension. At that time I was a young teenage punk that could not do much. The only thing on my mind was homework and exiting high school with a diploma. I eventually revisited this location in late 2006, when I returned home from college. To my surprise, there were no junkies or dealers in sight. Even though this location had plenty of clientele, it would eventually close two years after my last visit due to the demolition and reconstruction of the Mills parking garage. I really do miss this location. Thinking back, this Jack in the Box location reminded me so much of The Wire. Oh well!
