A note on the first (2007) newsletter:
A number of questions have been coming up in the last couple years about the wonderful and appreciated article by Lonn
Taylor (in the first newsletter, 2007). So I'll add a few notes here to clarify about some things he
wrote in that article. Keep in mind that he interviewed me in November but the article was written or published
quite a number of months later, so it is easy how Lonn forgot or mixed up a couple details. First,
I've never had black hair which he describes, rather it is a light/medium brown, with a little graying.
Secondly, he did ask me about my theory on the Terlingua name, which he read on another website.
But as the months passed from the time he read and wrote the article, he mixed my theory with one of
the several existing ones. The theory he mentions is one that I personally think does not make sense and
likely was made up in the last 50 years. You can see my theory which Lonn was referring to in his article.

I'm excited to see that the Big
Bend Ranch State Park has finally installed their exhibit signs along 170 on the Presidio Highway (from Lajitas
to Presidio). There was a setback to installation of the signs due to the flooding along the Rio Grande and
at Contrabando site. The painting that I did specifically for the sign at Contrabando Movie Set is beautifully
reproduced at that site. The painting is "La Casita" http://www.terlinguagallery.com/la_casita.html
