Bea is Golden!


Our own Beatriz Terrazas has won the Gold Award (and 500 bucks) in the Society of American Travel Writers' Lowell Thomas Awards competition. If you remember her series on traveling the Rio Grande, her triumph in the Special Packages/Projects category is hardly a big surprise. Here are the judges' comments:
Beatriz Terrazas, "The Call of the River," The Dallas Morning News
The Rio Grande is much more than the shallow river that separates Texas from Mexico. Terrazas travels with photographer Erich Schlegel to the Continental Divide, to the source of the nation's third-longest river and follows it south, elegantly telling the story of the Rio Grande and of people whose lives are touched by it. Their stories reflect some of the most difficult issues of the American Southwest.

Words To Live By


Not to steal Uncle Barky's thunder, but on tonight's 30 Rock, bonehead executive Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin, proclaims his motto:
"Sometimes you have to change things that are perfectly good just to make them your own."

Veterans

Those, like me, with more than 22 years in got cheated out of a good portion of our career at Belo. If you, like me, want to do something about it, let's get in touch as soon as the buyout checks clear.

unclebarky.com on the air

Hey, it's Ed Bark. Remember me? Hope so. Just wanted to let all my expatriate friends know that unclebarky.com is up and running. You might be especially interested in the "Why I'm Here" page. We're having a few problems with users of the internet explorer browser, unless you have a MAC. Safari and other browsers work great and allow you see all the boxes on the left and access them. Should have it fixed sometime tonight after my internet whiz stepson, Carl Morgan, gets back to San Marcos. He was really instrumental in setting this up. So please take a look. I hope you like what you see and read. As for me, I'm gassed!
Your pal,
Ed
