Let's help another little dog find her way home for Christmas. She has no tags and she isn't chipped. She was spotted near Elm and Louisville last weekend.

You can still purchase a living Christmas Tree. They are grown at Archer Farms in La Mesa, New Mexico. Your check for $100 should be written to Keep El Paso Beautiful. City of El Paso Arborist, Brent Pearson, (whose better half runs one of the best Mexican restaurants in greater El Paso - the Little Diner) will deliver your tree and then pick it up after the holidays if you wish to donate it to the City. If you would prefer to have your tree planted at your home, just let Brent know. There will be an additional $40 fee but then you will have a beautiful Mondale pine professionally and properly planted. Mondales are drought tolerant and fast growing. They are a great tree for increasing the much needed canopy in El Paso.

High winds tore through the borderland on Tuesday. The Newman Park area certainly experienced the wrath of a wind storm that brought winds of 100 m.p.h. in many places. Trees, street signs, roofs, windows and more were damaged in the Newman Park neighborhood.

Police closed Scenic Drive yesterday afternoon as children got an early dismissal from school. All who usually commute from their work in Northeast El Paso over Trans Mountain back to their homes on the Westside made the long trek around the south end of the mountains. Some left their cars off Alabama and were rescued by friends. City Council didn't begin today until 11 a.m. Ernie, the cat, took one look at the rain and snow this morning and buried himself at the bottom of his bed at the home he shares with Lee and Bobby Byrd.
A big thanks goes to Newmanista Donna Stephens for these photographs.
