Bill Wiley commented on Steve Ingraham's blog post Repeal the Government Pension Offset
"I don't know if this has been tried before or not, but it sounds good to me! Keep us posted on what we need to do to help. I'm so tired of getting SS but at the end of the year It seems like I have to give 50% of SS back in taxes,…"

"I went through this last year Steve, and learned that instead of $1800 a month I will be getting $490.00.  And then it took just short of a year to start receiving those benefits. "

Repeal the Government Pension Offset

I have started a Facebook page titled Repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO). I suggest that all current and retired officers like and share posts from the page. We are starting this fight because police officers, firefighters, teachers, and others that have, or will have, a government pension (EP Police and Fire Pension does qualify) and have enough Social Security quarters to receive SS when qualified, will be penalized because of their pension.  We are researching a possible class action lawsuit and other possibilities. Please post any GPO situations you might endured. See More

Public Art in El Paso

When you look into the matter of public art in El Paso, you’re struck by the contrasting voices: some are strident and disapproving, others are analytic and supportive.

Some examples:

“Public art creates a sense of place”
(Dionne Mack, Interim Director of Museums and Cultural Affairs)

“This is a very positive project”
(Patricia Dalbin, El Paso Public Art Director)

Then there are the voices on the other side:

“…the monstrosity that has appeared on Interstate 10 at the Airway exit”
“This thing looks like it was constructed by a manic pipe welder”
(Same letter writer to El Paso Times for both quotes, Kenneth Vaughn, on the same display)

“Whoever approved this so-called ‘sculpture’ should go back to school and take more
art appreciation classes”
(Letter to El Paso Times from writer Pete G. Flores, talking about I-10 art piece)

So who’s right?

Essence of this Website

It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, who face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again. [H]e who...spends himself in a worthy cause...knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

-Theodore Roosevelt-
