One of the many houses at Colonia Tarahumara in Juarez.

In last week’s issue, we talked to members of the Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society about ghosts of the Old West. Since we were discussing all things spooky, we asked them:
WHAT’S THE MOST EERIE MOMENT YOU’VE HAD? BONNIE JUAREZ:
A local volunteer brings water to a Juarez colonia resident. Photos by Victoria G. Molinar
The eeriest thing I ever experienced is in a home I used to own. I was lying in bed reading a book, and I heard knocking on the walls. And it wasn’t, “Tap! Tap! Tap!” It was, “BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!” All the way around the room in succession. It was pretty startling, and it woke up my ex-husband who was sleeping next to me. He said, “Is that someone at the front door?” I said, “No, it was in here.” We had thought there were weird things going on in the home, and that deﬁnitely conﬁrmed it.
It’s at the same house Bonnie was talking about. We were getting ready for a get-together that night, and I was early. I was sitting in the kitchen. As always, Bonnie is puttering around the house getting ready. I was sitting facing the window, looking out, and all of a sudden, I see a ﬁgure of a man walking past the window. And then he just disappears. I thought it was Bonnie at ﬁrst, because she’s tall. I was like, “Bonnie, where are you?” She was in the back bedroom or something. So, no idea who that was. But it was deﬁnitely one of those great experiences you don’t get very often.
There’s a certain apparition that has said my name twice, says what I’m wearing. Here in the Wigwam (Museum), I saw the lady in white with brownish/reddish hair turn the corner. I thought they were playing a joke on me. And they said that’s where everyone sees it. We had the ﬁlm crew here last week from “Brother James Retribution,” and one of the lead actors was grabbed from the shoulder, thinking it was me. I’m about 10 feet away. He goes, “What?” and I go, “What? What are you talking about?” He thought I had grabbed him from the shoulder. Something didn’t want him to leave. So from there, he bee-lined straight to Bonnie and he had this look on his face like, yeah, he experienced something. I’ve heard signing. There’s certain odors or smells. Walking on the ﬂoor here, you can actually hear boots or high heels walking.
FROM THE EDITOR: VICTORIA G. MOLINAR comment: @whatsupweekly One of my favorite quotes to think of when feeling overwhelmed about the adversities of the world comes from Confucius: “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” This past weekend, I was reminded of that quote when grassroots organization Boundless Across Borders and its volunteers traveled to the colonias along the outskirts of Juarez. I rode along with them about 45 minutes outside the city to Kilometro 30, known as Colonia Tarahumara, where they delivered 500 gallons of bottled water to the residents who have no access to running water. How much thought do we put into the water we use to wash our hands, rinse shampoo off our hair or take a dip in a pool? People often glamorize the idea of living off the grid, but for many of those living in practically forgotten plots of land just to have some form of shelter, living off the grid isn’t a happy escape from civilization. Boundless Across Borders co-founder Xochitl Rodriguez-Nicholson recently learned about the residents’ conditions through a friend, who said that although the residents have no infrastructure, they have to pay the same taxes as those who do.
“It appears to me that there’s nobody advocating for them, so it’s easy for them to become part of a system that isn’t benefitting them, but is still taking from them,” Xochitl said. While bringing residents packages of bottled water invoked smiles on both ends, it left Xochitl and other volunteers with the same feeling: it’s not enough. After I saw the girl I rode along with hand over the last package of water to one family, kids walked up to us asking if we had more. It was heartbreaking to tell them, “I’m sorry, but we don’t.” Once people learned through the news and Boundless Across Borders’ Facebook page what was being done, some asked questions like, “Why isn’t Mexico’s government doing anything about this?” and “Why are these volunteers helping Juarez instead of those living in outskirts of El Paso?” I challenge people who ask the latter question to ask themselves, “What am I doing to help change the situation?” After all, the water that was donated didn’t come from our taxes, but from people who simply wanted to help in some way. While it can feel as if handing out bottles of water makes a tiny difference, it made a difference nevertheless. And it certainly inspired a push for change. Boundless just announced that the Municipal President of Ciudad Juarez, Héctor Armando Cabada Alvídrez, granted them permission to cross as much water as needed, whereas before the amount they were allowed to cross was limited. There will also be municipal vehicles to help bring the water to the colonias. If you’re interested in donating money to help Boundless bring water trucks to the colonias, e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org or send them a message at facebook.com/BOUNDLESSacrossBORDERS. It costs around $35 to fill a truck. Xochitl said she’s also open to suggestions on how to streamline the process or help others in need on either side of the border. To learn more about the Juarez colonias situation, see KVIA ABC-7’s recent coverage at KVIA.com.

KAPPY’S CORNER By Steve Kaplowitz / Comment: @whatsupweekly
Aaron Jones left El Paso this week for Green Bay, Wisconsin to join the Packers for training camp. Their first day is this Thursday, July 27, and they will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Aug. 10, in the preseason opener for both teams. Before he flew out, UTEP’s former alltime leading rusher hosted his first Youth Skills Camp at the Sun Bowl, sponsored by BBVA Compass. The free camp filled up just hours after it was announced, and more than 1,200 kids ages 5-18 signed up. I caught up with Jones last week and we discussed his first few months in the NFL, the transition to life as a Green Bay Packer and giving back to the El Paso community. Q. How have the last few months been? It’s been great! I’m glad to be up (in Green Bay) and play some football. It’s definitely different moving to a completely new city you’ve never been to before, learning a whole new offensive playbook you’ve never learned before, learning new terminology, meeting new people, but I’ve definitely enjoyed the process. Q. What was it like seeing Lambeau Field for the first time? It was amazing! I was like, “Man, this stadium is a lot bigger in person than it looks on TV.” They said they’ve sold out for over 40 years, so I’m looking forward to playing in that type of environment. Q. Did you expect the fans and media to be so familiar with you during your first practices with the Packers? That definitely caught me by surprise. The fans are there with pictures asking for autographs and I was like, “You know who I am? I haven’t done anything here yet.” But their fans are great, and I love it. Q. What has NFL 101 been like as a rookie running back for Green Bay? AP Photo
After the first two weeks, you get adjusted quickly. You have veterans there like Davante Adams, Jayrone Elliott and Ty Montgomery to help you out, and they take you under their wing and it makes it a lot easier. They were very welcoming. They want anyone in there who’s going to help them win a championship. That’s their number one goal, and I’m glad they are the way they are.
went to a Michael Vick football camp when I lived in Virginia, but in El Paso, I really didn’t go to any local camps. ___ Since 1997, Steve Kaplowitz has hosted “Sportstalk” weekday afternoons 4-7 p.m. on 600 ESPN El Paso. Over the last 17 years, he has also worked for UTEP and NMSU as a play-by-play broadcaster, for UTEP telecasts on Time Warner Cable and for KDBC-TV and KTSM-TV as a sports anchor/reporter. You can contact Steve by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. What’s a typical day at Packers Minicamp like for you? Wake up at 5:05 a.m., catch the 5:30 shuttle to the facility, eat breakfast, 6:30 a.m. weights, special teams meeting at 7:30, and then I go to my position meeting until 9:30. Around that time, you have a walkthrough, and it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s on a big projector and they have Madden players, but they’re life-sized defensive players, and they move on the snap of the ball. It helps you see the play, but it looks like a video game. From there, the rookies go back to our position meetings while the veterans lift. After that, we get ready for practice around 11, and around 1 we have time to eat lunch and get in an extra lift. We also have time for the ice tub and warm tub. Q. What made you decide to hold a free football camp for kids? After I got drafted, I sat down with my agent and my dad and told them that I wanted to give back to the community. The perfect way was by offering a free camp. You look up in the NFL, and all the players are doing it. I told them that was something I want to do. I

‘IT’S NOT ABOUT GENRES; IT’S ABOUT MUSIC’ By Luis Carlos Lopez comment: @whatsupweekly
Punk’s not dead, and in 2017, neither is the Vans Warped Tour. Thanks to student demand, the concert returns to Las Cruces following a four-year hiatus. The event will take over New Mexico State University’s Intramural Field on Tuesday, Aug. 1. “There was a real push to get the concert back here,” said Scot Breckner, NMSU’s special events director. “Our students felt it had a place on campus.” Of course, punk rock and its subgenres are just a portion of what you’ll hear at Warped Tour, which has showcased a mix of alternative rock, ska, Photo by Taylor Ward
VANS WARPED TOUR RETURNS TO LAS CRUCES
pop, metalcore, emo and screamo over the course of 23 years. In this year’s Las Cruces stop, the Warped Tour lineup scattered across several stages will include CKY, Hawthorne Heights, I, Prevail and Gwar. (Read more about the lineup on page 8.) You can also purchase workshops and Q&A sessions hosted by acclaimed artists and music industry experts thanks to education platform The Entertainment Institute. Hawthorne Heights, for example, will tell attendees “how to remain positive during dark times” while Shawna Potter of War on Women will discuss “creating safer spaces.” “With hate crimes and harassment on the rise, knowing how to be a good ally to your fellow punks is more important than ever,” reads Potter’s workshop description. As electronic dance music, hiphop and R&B seems to surpass all other genres in the music festival sphere in recent years, Wa r p e d
Tour’s four-year absence in Las Cruces called to question the state of the genres that often defined the ’90s, when the festival first started off. But despite the drop of rock bands on top40 playlists, one can argue that punk and altrock were never meant to be mainstream. Acts like The Ramones, Bad Religion, Pennywise and the Sex Pistols fought the establishment with fast-paced power-chords, screeching vocals and the constant clashing of snares. For Breckner, the tour is not about music genres; instead, the concept is to introduce new bands and provide them with a stage to showcase their talent. “Producers still have the basic concept of trying to break new bands,” Breckner said. “Katy Perry appeared in one of our Warped Tours and became one of the top selling artists to come out of the tour. She performed in one of our small stages when she came here a number of years ago.” He said concert organizers are expecting the one-day fest to draw a crowd size from 6,000 to 10,000 fans. The event also provides NMSU students an opportunity to work the concert and earn some money. Aggies studying in the many
fields that cater to the concert can get hands-on experience working Warped Tour. Breckner added that the concert gives veteran bands the opportunity to perform fan-favorite throwbacks while offering up-and-coming bands a chance to share their talent on the same stages. “Conceptually, the event is still kind of the same,” Breckner said. “The only difference is in the past, you would go to a concert and see bands you’ve never heard of before. Now with YouTube and the internet, you can catch a few songs from some of the acts before you get to the venue.” All in all, Warped Tour continues to provide music lovers with the same quality lineup that it did when it first started, Breckner said. “A day full of live music with all these bands continues to be unique and exciting.”

Memphis May Fire Neck Deep Our Last Night Save Ferris
FROM THE ASHES
n true Warped Tour fashion, this year’s lineup offers up a wide range of throwback favorites and a slew of breakout bands. We did our homework and found some of the most notable acts to catch at New Mexico State University’s Intramural Field this coming Tuesday, Aug. 1. Memphis May Fire hails from Dallas – not Tennessee – and they’ve taken the rock/metalcore world by storm. They’ll shake up the Journeys Right Foot stage during the all-day fest. Often described by the press as “Christian” metalcore, the band is guided by personal faith, but they’re simply spreading messages of “hope and light,” vocalist Matty Mullins said. “My faith makes its way into my lyrical content, and I think that’s why we’ve been pinned with that label,” he said. “This platform we have is a gift to share the message with the world.” Labels aside, Memphis May Fire has cultivated a large following with their powerful, often emotional lyrics that anyone can relate to. Part of the band’s allure is their ability to capture many of our shared emotions and experiences as human beings and put them into a pummeling, in-your-face, technically proficient song. Their latest effort, “This Light I Hold” is a sonic delight and a perfect blend of high energy and compassion that brilliantly displays the band’s ability to erase genre boundaries, and is sure to expand their fan base. Ass-kicking all-girl quartet, Bad Cop / Bad Cop, are bringing it loud and heavy at the Hard Rock stage. The L.A.-based punk band debuted in 2014 with their EP “Boss Lady.” Their eclectic sound has been compared to punk acts like The Muffs and Face to Face, as well as 80s pop darlings, The Go-Go’s. These hard-hitting heroines recently dropped the video for single “Womanchrist” off their latest release “Warrior.” Before the album’s release, one of the members did a stint in rehab and the band almost called it quits.

ennsylvania’s Camp Kill Yourself, or CKY, will bring their brand of post-grunge skate punk and harder-edged rock n’ roll to the Journeys Left Foot stage. The band is touring in support of their new album “The Phoenix,” which came out on June 16. The aptly-titled album is the first since 2009’s “Carver City,” and it shows a band reinvigorated following a few years of setbacks and lineup changes. The band is now a power trio: previous guitar player and backing vocalist Chad Ginsburg is now the band’s frontman, with founding drummer Jess Margera hitting the skins and Matt Deis making his second album appearance on bass. This is the first time CKY has played a Warped Tour in almost two decades, and they’re having a slightly different experience playing the festival than they did the first time around. “We weren’t officially on the Warped Tour in 1999,” Ginsburg said, “but Volcom squeezed us in any time there was a little time between bands. They’d say, ‘Can you play at 2:15 today for 15 minutes?’” The band traveled to and from every show in an old minivan, and they arrived at each venue early in order to sneak in for free. They took a similarly bootleg approach to their merchandise at the time as well. Their t-shirts had ‘CKY’ stenciled in spray paint, and they sold home-dubbed VHS copies of their videos. They came into prominence as part of a self-titled video series that was a precursor to Jackass. Any skater from the late ’90s can Continued on 9

The record is the aggressive and hard-driving culmination of one of the band’s most painful, educational and enlightening experiences. Microwave, playing at the Skullcandy stage, is an emo-on-speed four-piece based in Georgia. Founder and frontman Nathan Hardy had recently split from the Mormon Church in a quasi-identity crisis in 2012 when he formed the band. After completing a missionary trip to the West Coast, Hardy enlisted his high school buddy, drummer Timothy “Tito” Pittard. The two quickly added a guitarist and bass player and began writing and recording. The result was two EP’s of material Hardy had written during his travels. The band quickly followed up with their first full length LP “Stovall” in 2014. The record consists of songs Hardy wrote about the hardship of divorcing himself from his church. Microwave followed up with “Much Love,” which made its way onto Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart. The band spreads its wings on this record, adding new elements like acoustic guitar and blues-inspired riffs to more mature subject matter, showing the band’s advancement Continued from 9
recall the hilarity watching them smash stuff and wipe poop on a friend’s face while he was sleeping. The band was eventually kicked off the Warped Tour for forging a pass, and they were kicked off the 2000 Tour for doing the same thing. But since then, CKY has released billboard-charting albums and opened for Metallica. Thus, this year, they were extended an official invite to play the tour’s main stage. No more of the sneak-in method, Ginsburg said. Backstage, Ginsburg said he sees young bands hustling to make it like CKY did all those years ago. And while he sympathizes with their trials and tribulations, he said bands pay their dues and they pay them for a reason: to be able to tour like a rock star. “We’re in bus world now,” Ginsburg laughed. “Back then, we’d see Green Day and No Doubt, and they didn’t help us out. If someone is out there sweating their d*ck off, that’s just part of the game. The road is rough. Maybe in 17 years, they’ll be on their own tour bus, relaxing in the AC!”

SALT+HONEY BAKERY CAFE By Lisa Martinez / comment: @whatsupweekly
The anticipation of the opening of Salt + Honey was felt by Instagram followers who coveted the countless teaser pics that owner and baker Maggie Asfahani posted almost daily. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because she was the former editor of this publication. While it was sad to see her go, the Five Points neighborhood gained a chic café that looks like it would grace the pages of Bon Appétit magazine. The one-page menu offers a bit of sweet and savory breakfast, brunch and lunch items served from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Beverages and pastries can be enjoyed until the 4 p.m. closing time. Enjoy coffee beverages, pots of tea, mint lemonade, hot cocoa, wine and beer. Pastries vary and have included bear claws, croissants, pies, birthday cake, triple-layer brownies (made with Oreos and chocolate chip cookies), strawberry rose scones, muffins and various gluten-free items. Seemingly familiar favorites pack whimsical surprises and clever names. La Huevona, which plays with Spanish words for eggs or lazy (slang), will get you a breakfast sandwich with a poached egg, house-made turkey sausage, sharp cheddar, gochujang mayo, arugula and tomato. Breakfast decadence is a fluffy stack of pancakes with house-spiced honey topped with baklava and vanilla bean ice cream. For something on the healthier side, try the vanilla chia pudding made with almond milk, mixed berries, nuts and coconut chips. Everyone’s lunch favorite is The
Black Friday, a homage to Thanksgiving leftovers done right; roasted turkey is topped with spiced cranberry pear chutney, stuffing, muenster cheese and arugula on a brioche bun. At times the menu isn’t exactly clear, but friendly staff will clear up any confusion. Some menu items include a side of fries, side salad or homemade soup of the day. For a little extra, you can upgrade your fries to include feta and spiced honey. Maggie’s Lebanese background finds its way into much of the menu, making twists on dishes like the trendy avocado toast. At Salt, avocado toast is first slathered in hummus and finished with za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend. Fattoush salad replaces the traditional fried pita pieces with garlic naan croutons, and is a mix of greens, radishes, red onion, mint, tomato and garbanzo beans in a sumac vinaigrette. Other favorite items include the East Coast bagel with house-cured salmon, the burger and a loaded grilled cheese. Frequent visits are required in order to graze your way through the menu, sample the rotating pastry offerings and bask in the posh atmosphere.

was an El Paso staple for years at one time operating three locations that served quality pizza, subs and the best homemade ranch and Greek dressings. Last month, the remaining location at 7000 Westwind permanently closed. Already in its place will be The Pizza Joint’s fourth location. This summer, west El Paso will be getting another fast casual pizza franchise. Pieology is a build-yourown-pizza concept restaurant and will be located at 6951 N. Mesa near Whole Foods Market. Four more locations are planned for the El Paso-Las Cruces area. The building that once housed a Fuddruckers in west El Paso will now be a Saltgrass Steak House. Each steak is topped with fresh garlic butter and seasoned with Saltgrass-7 steak spice. The Texas-based chain is operated by restaurant brand, Landry’s Inc.
Creating the ultimate hangout vibe, the café offers a feast for the eyes with plenty to read and honey comb-themed decor.

usical theatre group the Gilbert & Sullivan Company of El Paso will bring “The Yeomen of the Guard” to the Chamizal National Memorial Theatre starting this Friday, July 28. The production is an opera written by iconic playwright/composer duo Sir W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan. The Victorian-era theatrical team is known for its light-hearted, pithy and humorous approach to various topics, including “H.M.S. Pinafore” and “The Pirates of Penzance.” Although “The Yeomen of the Guard” contains some typical one-liners and some instances of highbrow humor, the production is not quintessential Gilbert and Sullivan. “This is the first time we’ve performed it,” said Tristan Chavez-Poeschel, one of the company’s board members. “It’s a little more serious than some of the other Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.” The production’s lead character, Colonel Fairfax, is played by David Castro and Nathaniel Matkin. Fairfax is a man of science who has been imprisoned in the Tower of London during the 17th century after being charged with sorcery. Sergeant Meryll, portrayed by bass-baritone Mitch Wilson, has great admiration for Fairfax and his career as a soldier. With the help of his daughter Phoebe Meryll (Ashley Curry and Jessica McKay),

who has strong affection for the colonel, Fairfax escapes under the guise of one of the Yeomen of the Guard. Eventually, he is pardoned. The company will perform the production along with the accompaniment of a full orchestra led by Francisco Renteria.
