One of my favorite things about working here is the people I work with. Check em' out.
El Paso Times Editor Bob Moore working on what looks like the computer in that 1983 movie WarGames featuring Mathew Broderick and Ally Sheedy.
Our very own photog Victor Calzada. I'm pretty sure he still wears that shirt, or something similar at least.
And Rudy Guitterez! I think he might be wearing a Swatch watch. Rudy has informed me that he is shooting a manual focus 600 in this photo. MANUAL.
Managing Editor of the El Paso Times Ramon Bracamontes. This might be what old school journalism looked like. A phone, a pen, a notepad and an open phonebook. Guess things haven't changed much, except for the phonebook part. Maybe add an ipad and a smartphone. Whatever, the idea is still the same.
You bet the idea is still the same. You can always find someone doing this in any newsroom at any given time.
Our favorite sports writer Bill Knight. I think we might still have that laptop somewhere. That is a laptop right?
Investigative reporter Daina Washington Valdez. One of the best.
They are moving the photo department to a new area of our building. All morning my photo editor, Ruben Ramirez, has been cleaning out his office. Its been comical. I will be posting photos of the awesomeness (which is the unmeasurable amount of awesomenimity something can produce, according to urbandictionary.com) that has been coming out of that time capsule he calls an office. First generation digital cameras, first memory cards, about twenty years worth of photo press passes and pictures of staffers with mullets. Stay tuned.

Mayfield High School boys basketball coach Tommy Morrow, on floor, and an assistant reacted to an official's call during the team's game against Cathedral Friday Feb. 3. The protest of the traveling violation against Mayfield was to no avail.
Franklin High School wrestling coach Jesse Almodovar enthusiastically ecouraged team member Paige Edwinson during Saturday's district meet at Jefferson. Almodovar's coaching helped Edwinson defeat Chapin's Mia Caldwell in the 119-lb. championship match.
