    thats him! grew up with some of his outlaw kin. back in the day he was THE mover and shaker of the ysleta gun club.
    Leon Metz is an el paso historian and author. has several books out about el paso in the old west days. was always on tv and radio whenever they needed an expert on concordia cemetery, old buildings, gunfighters etc.

    Yes, I knew of Metz (as you note, a Big Name here in El Paso), but meant to say did not know him personally, or ever meet him.

    IIRC, I even have his book on El Paso (in a storage room).

    Also yes, I know John Wesley Hardin is in Concordia Cemetery (I think he still is). ;-)

    His killer (John Selman) is also there.

    Same for artist Peter Hurd (Roswell and San Patricio, NM) -- knew of him/never met him -- but at least I drive by his "La Rinconada" gallery when crusing through the scenic Hondo Valley (Roswell-Ruidoso on Hwy 70). ;-)

    @ Talon Hill Apartments on Voyager (between Interquest & Northgate). Could see the Air Force Academy in the Front Range foothills across from my balcony.


    Spent lots of time on Powers Blvd. (just about everything you could want/need re: stores/restaurant/banks/medical care was there) and have some friends who have a home in Flying Horse (newer residential subdivision in NE COS).

    Need to go back up in June to get the rest of my stuff (!) and close-out the storage room I still have there (Chapel Hills)!
