Kimberly Wahpepah poses for a portrait in Gallup April 24. Wahpepah said she is a survivor of human sex trafficking in 2007. Photo Credit: Cayla Nimmo become a spokeswoman for human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and missing and murdered native women. Wahpepah says these violation that occur in the shadows leave terrible marks on our society. She adds that these activities are kept concealed

by attitudes, such as those she faced as a young girl. “My parents didn’t believe me at the time. They said I was making up stories,” she said, referring to her reported past abuse. “I keep seeking answers as to why this is happening.” Wahpepah spoke about how her grandmother would tell her to not talk about these taboo subjects with other people, but she said that as a victim, she has to get the word out. Originally from Manuelito, Wahpepah was raised both traditionally and as a Christian. But, she faced difficulties early in life, including being homeless, and overcame those challenges in recent years. It prompted her to think of ways of how she could help other folks living on the streets. “What I’ve been through is how I’m trying to seek some type of answer to different situations in my life that will help

others who are going through the same thing,” Wahpepah said. “I put it upon myself to do something about it.” As part of her advocate work, Wahpepah was a spokesperson for Nava jo Nation Missing Persons, where she first researched what human trafficking entails and learned what she could do to help with her own resources. Wa hpepa h said getting entangled in sex trafficking is relatively easy. She studied the moves and describes it as something as simple as someone going up to a potential victim and asking if they want to perform sexual acts and get paid for it. “That’s how easy it is to become a victim,” she said. “It’s as easy as [the perpetrator] saying, ‘Hey, you want to make some money?’” Wahpepah said she spoke to several victims about why they

got involved. “When I started talking about it to people, they said they’re going through it for money, a place to stay, food to eat,” she said. Victims don’t know what they’re getting into, Wahpepah said. Perpetrators will often manipulate victims into staying with them and continuing to perform the acts, because they know the victims are in a vulnerable state, she added. “The victim won’t understand what their role is in the situation, until it is too late,” she said. Once the trafficker has either done what they wanted with the victim or thinks that the victim could pose a threat, they find a way to relocate the victim, Wahpepah said. This is how human trafficking comes

To the Community: When I read the editorial in the Gallup Independent on Saturday April 6th, my first reaction was what has Zollinger ever done to support this community? He has spent his entire career with the Independent aacking anyone who has tried to improve Gallup and McKinley County. I feel sorry for Zollinger and his family. John and Martha Zollinger were good community leaders and contributed so much. In my opinion, John Zollinger would be embarrassed on how Bob has conducted himself over the years.

I have lived in Gallup over 38 years and have volunteered my time for many civic and charitable causes to help this community. In 2009, Governor Bill Richardson awarded me the New Mexico Distinguished Public Service Award for my community service. I am very proud of the recognition that I received from the Governor.

This community has been very good to me and the Newberry family. I had an obligation to give back to Gallup and McKinley County. Some people in this community like and respect me and some do not. However, no one in our community can state that I have been part of the problem. I have contributed many hours and financial resources to address the many problems facing Gallup and McKinley County. Some of my efforts have been successful, and some have been unsuccessful. But my efforts have always been based on what I thought were best for our community.

I believe that Bob Zollinger has been one of the biggest problems that our community has faced over the years. In my opinion, no one respects him or wants to hear what he has to say about anything. Hopefully one day he will leave our community and allow Gallup and McKinley County to move forward in a positive way.

City council approves application submission for lighting project A NEW SYSTEM THAT WOULD INCREASE LIGHTING LIFE BY 500 PERCENT

By Cody Begaye Sun Correspondent

T

he Gallup City Council listened to a request to submit an application to the New Mexico Finance Authority for

future LED Street Lighting Project Bonding consideration at their recent regular meeting. Eric Babcock, interim electrical director for the City of Gallup, spoke for the item. He said that the application is an

administrative requirement by the NMFA to be considered for financial bonding. According to Babcock, the LED streetlight project involves changing over 4,000 street and area lights. The existing light system uses

about 4.2 million kilowatt hours to operate for one year, while the new LED system will use about 1.7 million kilowatt hours for a savings of about 2.5 million kilowatt hours, or 61 percent. “We will save on investment a nd increa se public safety,” Babcock said April 23. According to an attachment from the City Council agenda, the new system would brighten commercial areas of Gallup for safety, security, and

appearance. No specific areas of the city were mentioned at

New police chief sworn in MAYOR CONFIDENT OF LEADERSHIP By Cody Begaye Sun Correspondent

A

fter being announced as the choice for Gallup’s new police chief, Franklin Boyd was sworn in at a ceremony at the El Morro Theatre April 19. The ceremony featured members of the Gallup City Council, as well as community leaders, highlighting Boyd’s achievements. “This is a great day for Gallup,” Mayor Jackie McKinney said. “[We are acknowledging] someone who has dedicated a lot of time to this city and cares very much about safety in our community.” McKinney said that Boyd is soft-spoken, good-hearted, and humble, but he is able to speak up assertively for the police department. “We will develop a system that works for Gallup to protect the officers and citizens because they should be protected,” he said. City Manager Mar yann Ustick said that she has had the privilege of working with police departments around the nation, and that the Gallup department is a standout because it is effective in every area, while adhering to the highest standards of law enforcement in the country. “While out in community in

some of the most challenging conditions we’ve ever seen, you treat people with respect,” she said to Boyd. “It’s a delight for me personally, but not a surprise to have a chief be one of our own.” Gallup City Councilor Linda Garcia was next to speak, calling on her knowledge of Boyd for 20 years. Garcia said to Boyd: “What you have chosen to do is a mission and a calling. Not everyone can do this. All your work, energy, dedication, and integrity has brought you to this day.” O r i g i n a l ly f r om For t Defiance, Ariz., Boyd enlisted in the military. During his tour of duty, he was a rank crewman in the Gulf War, and participated in Operation Restore Hope in Somalia in 1992, Garcia said. Boyd then re-enlisted in 1993 and served two terms in Pakistan and Panama City, before he was honorably discharged as a sergeant. Garcia pointed out that since he returned to Gallup and enrolled in the police department, he worked his way up through every rank in the department. He has since commanded multiple units within the department, including patrol, detective, property crimes, investigations, and the emergency response team. Municipal Court Judge Grant Foutz then swore Boyd in as Chief of Police, which sparked

Boyd gave his acceptance speech afterward, expressing his gratitude to his family and peers for helping him reach this point. “Without their support, I wouldn’t be the person I am,” he said. “I am proud to have been a member of this community for my entire career.” In a separate interview with the Sun, Boyd said, “You don’t just learn the department, you learn how to do specific jobs within the police department.” He called his new position a phenomenal task, and added that border towns present a

unique challenge, and added that it makes it hard to bring an officer in from the outside to work with the Gallup police. If they haven’t worked in a border town, the results of their efforts might not meet expectations. “You don’t learn how to police this unique community overnight,” he said.. As the interim police chief before Phillip Hart was hired, and then again when he was removed, Boyd acknowledged the department is going where he wants it to go. “I’ve been working on these issues since 2016,” he said. The next objective Boyd wants to implement is body cameras for each officer.

In addition to hiring more staff, Boyd hopes that a proposed new police department building will be able to increase the officers’ morale and performance. “The people’s safety will always be our top priority,” he said. “The officers never put personal interest before people. They truly care for this community.” In the closing remarks at the ceremony, Mayor McKinney spoke about how Boyd came to stand out, thanks to his good attitude. “I’m confident Boyd can lead the team,” he said. “There is no doubt in my mind.”

Weekly Police Activity Reports Staff Reports

IDENTITY THEFT Mentmore, April 14 T he McK i n ley Cou nt y Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of a Mentmore man who said he is the victim of identity theft. Matthew John told deputies that he had received statements from two loan companies that he has been approved for loans of $5,000 and $4,000. He said he also had received approval from a mail order company. When asked how someone could have gotten his personal information, he said he lost his wallet containing his social security card in the mall four years ago. He said he also does personal business using his WIFI account. When asked if this could have just been adver tise ments, he said no, they were actual loan approvals.

CONTERFEIT SMALL BILLS

Police then contacted the store management who said they would tell their clerks to watch more closely at the bills they receive. A close examination of the bill saw a number of things wrong with it, including the coloring and Chinese writing on it.

The new LED system will cost about $133,000 a year, for an overall savings of $315,000 a year. In addition, the new LED system would have a life of over 20 years whereas the current system has an average life of about four years. The project cost given by Babcock is $2.5 million, or about $623 apiece for just over 4,000 lights. Taking the simple payback route with the savings will allow the city to pay off the project in just under eight years. According to a timeline given at the meeting, approving the application submission now would allow the utilities depar tment to submit the application before the city council’s May 23 meeting and then return to the council with an ordinance during one of their June meetings. Once the city is approved, they will expand on the project. The city will take inventory of all existing poles and lamps for geographic information systems and asset management. After that, the replacement work will be completed about nine months from the start date. However, there was no start date given at the meeting. Dist. 3 Councilor Yogash Kumar asked if the LED lighting system carried a warranty. Babcock said that the lights’ warranty would be good for five years. W hen asked by Dist. 2 Councilor Allan Landavazo about potential cash f low, Babcock said that any projected cash flow would come in the form of savings through

maintenance and verification of the LED system. If the interest rate on the project is reduced, the city wou ld save more money, Babcock sa id. But i f the interest rate on the project i ncrea se s, t hose sav i ng s would be reduced. The motion to go forward w ith the application wa s approved with a 5-0-0 vote.

HIDDEN CRIME | FROM PAGE 4 into play, she said. “Going through the trafficking, I see it on a daily basis,” she said, referencing the women who are walking the streets. Wa hpepa h a dded t h at she feels a connection to the potential victims on the street because she used to be in their situation. She said that those people look up to her, because she is doing something with her life to help others like her. Wahpepah said she has recently started to talk about sex trafficking in McKinley County, especially in border towns such as Gallup and Farmington. These two towns are also where Wahpepah experienced the dangers of human trafficking firsthand. She said that she survived a sex trafficking incident in Gallup in 2007, and that she was nearly abducted by an unidentified person in Farmington around 2008. During her advocate work, Wahpepah spoke with the Gallup Police Department about stopping trafficking and bringing awareness about sex trafficking to the community. In particular, she talked about its connection to missing and murdered indigenous women. As for her current plans, Wahpepah said she has spoken with numerous elected officials about getting the issue heard at the highest levels of

government in Washington, D.C. One step along the road to getting the word out was speaking at the Gallup City Council’s regular meeting April 23. During the meeting, Mayor Jackie McKinney presented a proclamation about supporting potential native victims. “[Native women] experience a higher missing rate than any other ethnicity,” McKinney said, adding that about one in every four or five native women experience this violence. McKinney pointed out that May 5 has been proclaimed as a Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls. Dist. 3 Councilor Yogash Kumar agreed that human trafficking is a vital community issue. “It’s hard to figure out what people are actually doing, because we may not see the trafficking,” he said. Wahpepah said these covert crimes are difficult to see, and often the result of drug dealing and abuse. However, she said she has also encountered perpetrators who are authority figures in the community, but she refused to provide names. “It’s mostly business people, ones who have money. They get away with it,” she said. For more information about human trafficking, or to report an incident, visit https://humantraffickinghotline.org/

COMMUNITY ‘Avengers: Endgame’ marks a fitting, satisfying close By Glenn Kay For the Sun

RATING: ««« OUT OF «««« RUNNING TIME: 181 MINUTES

T

he past 11 years have been filled with Marvel superhero movies...21, in fact. So many features that this critic has definitely been feeling a bit of burn-out at witnessing more comic characters do battle with evil forces, before setting up yet another threat and sequel. Avenger: Endgame is a finale of sorts, tying together all of the events in the previous films into one climactic showdown. While one could nitpick about a few minor elements, this is one of the stronger entries in the franchise. Overall, it wraps up events and characters in an engaging and entertaining manner. Following the end of Infinity War, which left half of all life in the universe instantaneously gone, the dozen or so surviving Avengers struggled with an uncertain future. With the

COMMUNITY

Thanos (Josh Brolin) makes an early appearance in new “Avengers: Endgame.” Photo Credit: Marvel Studios villainous Thanos (Josh Brolin) nowhere to be found, the dejected group labor to adapt to a sparsely populated and rundown Earth (the world appears very empty, despite the fact that there should still be nearly 3.85 billion people remaining, but we’ll let that slide). After some time, a lost figure from the past reappears and inspires a new train of thought that could alter the outcome of the previous battle. The Avengers decide to team up one last time on what amounts to a suicide mission in order to reverse history. While it was obviously unfortunate to see so many heroes meet their ends in the previous

installment, from a story perspective it was the best thing that could have happened to this sequel. The last film struggled to juggle close to 30 leads, and for this reviewer spread itself too thin. This follow-up has the benefit of having fewer parts, and as such has more time to focus on individuals. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) all get plenty of screen time and are allowed the opportunity to process the loss of friends, and deal with their own concerns about mortality. The actors handle their angst-ridden parts effectively and with heart, but the highlights in this chapter are Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Ant-man (Paul

Rudd), and Rocket (Bradley Cooper). Of course, they also deal with the same issues as the others, but their roles are infused with far more humor and sharp wit. Thor’s scenes stand out in particular. Not only does the character harbor both anger and sadness, but at times it’s also extremely amusing to see him in tears during certain moments and, over the course of the trying period, well, kind of let himself go and suffer from a crisis of confidence. As for the action, when it does arrive it is quite exciting. There are plenty of great moments as the Avengers create a plan involving a “time heist” and end up traveling through a great many environments that will be familiar to fans of the series. Of course, there is also an elaborate and epic battle at the close, giving all of the characters a moment or two to shine and take down the bad guys. It’s a lot to squeeze in, but the sequence does deliver the expected popcorn thrills. Admittedly, there are a couple of very minor problems. Even knowing very little about these comic book characters, previous films have really spelled out where the story would be headed. As such, there aren’t many surprises here (except for the fates of one or two

characters) and much of the film plays out as expected. The central villain, Thanos also disappears for a lengthy period, and after the climax, there are extended scenes of various characters saying their farewells. Again, they’re all very effectively rendered, but these moments do play out for an additional 15 minutes. But these are all minor complaints. Overall, the movie certainly delivers the superhero goods. It’s hard to know exactly what the future may bring for the Marvel Universe (... actually, who are we kidding? We already know there are more Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy films on the horizon). Regardless, Avengers: Endgame is one of the more successful latter entries in the franchise. It marks a fitting and satisfying close to what has been promised over the last decade plus and is an impressive accomplishment.

DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for April 26, 2019 By Glenn Kay For the Sun

W

elcome back. It’s time for another look at Blu-ray and DV D highlights arriving on store shelves. While this isn’t the busiest week for new releases, there are still plenty of interesting flicks that may catch your eye. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES! Bisbee ‘17 This documentary is about an Arizona mining t ow n o n t h e US/Mexico border and the horrific events that occurred in 1917, when 12 0 0 i m m ig r a nt worker s were rounded up by locals, deported, and left to die in the desert. The community puts on a re-creation of the event, which forces the locals to come to terms with and understand the severity of their relatives’ actions. Critics were very impressed with the production. They wrote that the still-relevant topic dealt with its difficult subject in a creative way, and provided viewers and participants with an authentic sense of the awful event. Destroyer - An LAPD officer with a dark past forces herself back into a narcotics-related investigation linked to one of her earliest cases as an undercover agent. When an old gang leader is reported to have reappeared in the area, she has visions of the past and seeks out old associates to try

to resolve matters. The press generally liked the movie. Many called the lead performance of a deeply troubled cop fantastic. It stars Nicole Kidman, Sebastian Stan, Toby Kebbell, Tatiana Maslany and Bradley Whitford. Escape Room - A g r oup of seemingly random strangers is given passes and invited to try out a new “escape room” and potentially win a cash prize. When they begin, members of the group suddenly realize that the stakes are much higher than originally thought, and that they must solve the puzzles presented to them in order to survive. About half of critics liked that the characters weren’t buffoons and believed the movie provided some thrills. The same number complained that the movie becomes tiresome and completely loses its way during the final act. The cast includes Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Jay Ellis, Tyler Labine and Deborah Ann Woll. T h e Gospel According to André - André Leon Talley is the subject of this document a r y. T he l i fe of the designer is compiled from his childhood in the segregated Deep South, through the beginnings of his career and eventual rise to prominence in the world of fashion. In addition to giving more insight on his life, the movie also includes the thoughts of those who respected h i m, i nclud i ng Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Bethann Hardison, Valentino, and Manolo Blahnik. Write-ups for this feature were very strong.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST!

There are loads of interesting older titles arriving in high definition. Arrow Video has a Special Edition Blu-ray of Scared Stiff (1987), a low-budget slasher flick about a singer, her son and her psychologist boyfriend who move into a haunted house and must contend with a malevolent spirit that torments them. The release includes a 2K restoration of the feature from the original film elements, an audio commentary with the director and the producer, a new documentary about the production featuring the cast and crew, an interview with the composer and plenty of publicity materials. S h o u t ! Factory is delivering the Bluray debut of the early Sylvester Stallone period drama, Paradise Alley (1978). This effort is about a group of pals struggling to make their way out of their downtrodden Hell’s Kitchen homes (some by working in a local wrestling ring). Lead actor Stallone also, interestingly, croons some of the picture’s original songs. Bonus features include trailers, radio spots and a stills gallery. I’ll also be honest and say that I’m not entirely sure how monkeys fit into the mix, but based on the picture inclusions, there is one present. Criterion has a Blu-ray of the well-regarded Elia Kazan satire, A Face in the Crowd (1957). Andy Griffith plays against type as a nasty comedian with a drinking problem who becomes a star on TV and whose demagogical actions even influence politics. The movie has gained esteem in

showing how toxic personalities can manipulate the world by using media. The movie itself has been given a new 4K restoration and comes with interviews featuring Griffith and Kazan biographers, as well as a 2005 documentary on the film, and a trailer. K ino ha s a rema rkably b u s y we e k o f r e l e a s e s . A mong them, a Blu-ray of the thriller, The House of the Seven Gables (1940). This one, starring George Sanders and Vincent Price, comes with a film historian audio commentary and trailers. They also have The Informer (1929) in high definition; this feature is about IRA revolutionaries and is considered one of the best British films of the era. Included a re a silent a nd sound version of the feature, along with a restoration demonstration. They also have The Land Unknown (1957) on Blu-ray. This sci-fi flick is about a ship’s crew in Antarctica who finds a hole in the ice, flies through it, and discovers a fantastic prehistoric land filled with dinosaurs and other strange creatures. The disc includes a film historian audio commentary, an animated image gallery, and a trailer. You can also pick up a Blu-ray of the unusual Amicus horror picture, Scream and Scream Ag ain (1970). This terror flick with Vincent Price, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee featu res severa l a ntholo gy-esque stories that actually intersect, as they play out. The release includes both the US and UK cuts of the movie, a film historian commentary, a Trailers from Hell segment with director Mick Garris (Critters 2, Psycho IV, Sleepwalkers and various Stephen King TV miniseries), along with various publicity materials. They are also debuti ng t he British silent film Shooting Stars (1928) on Bluray. Apparently, t h is 90 -plu s year-old comedy pokes fun at the movie industry. Additionally, they have a Blu-ray of the Robert Louis

Stevenson adaptation of The Strange Door (1951). The horror flick stars Boris Karloff and comes with a film historian audio commentary and plenty of trailers. F ina lly, K ino is making a not her UK si lent cla s sic a v a i l a ble i n t he fo r m of Unde rground (1928). This rom a nce s et i n a subway s y s t em a r r i ve s w it h t wo different scores, and a featu re on the mov ie’s resto ration by the Br itish F ilm Institute. And a distributor called Garagehouse has a curious grindhouse title in the form of Supercock (1975). Set in the Philippines, this movie is about an American who takes his prize-winning rooster to compete in the first annual Cockfighting Olympics. When a gang tries to kidnap his fighter, the hero does everything he can to get his animal back and win the title. This movie has been off the radar for many years. It is being made available on Blu-ray for the first time ever, transferred from the only known 35 mm print, which was recently discovered in the estate of the film’s late star, Ross Hagen. The Blu-ray comes with an audio commentary from cult moviemaker and fan Fred Olen Ray, and an old interview with Hagen.
