I want to express my thanks to you both for the television access we were allowed at the former Asarco smelter to video document the stack drop event on April 13, 2013 in El Paso, Texas. Our on-site cameras were sent live to El Paso Channel 7 KVIA-TV and we also recorded them for the TV documentary we have been filming called “Last Tour of the El Paso Smelter.” You are both on the list for a DVD.

You guys made this stack event look routine. It is great to work with professionals. And I also thank you for your trust in my work, and your faith in our purpose.

I regret the flack Roberto has caught from some El Pasoans. Many people appreciate your dedication to preserving the history of the site that is possible to save. You gave El Paso people ample time to ‘save th stacks’ or ‘save the powerhouse.’ And you have allowed us to save it all on TV recordings.
