Halls Move to California on June Sixth
Lora, Jim and Jimmy Hall
The West Side will miss Jim and his tireless efforts in its behalf. The Recorder Staff will particularly miss his guidance on the paper. We can best show our appreciation for all his help by continuing to carry on on our own those projects he has helped with in the years he was here.
Since 1967 Jim Hall has been the pastor of Wesley Methodist Church at 5th and Galapago. For many"'seminarians this would
have involved a simple task within the church. From the beginning Jim realized and believed that the work of the church did not end within the walls of the building. Even with criticism from the congregation and with the extra load of school he continued to seek to make the gospel relevant.
In the spring of 1968, Jim helped to start the West Side Action Ministry to help serve the West Side, and keep the West
Action Council Annual Meeting Everyone Welcome
The West Side Action Council and the West Side Action Center staff are very busy these days in preparation for the Annual Meeting to be held on June 27, 1971, between 2:30 and 6:00 in the afternoon. The plans at this point indicate that the meeting will be held at the Lincoln Park, if they can get permission from the Denver Parks and Recreation Department. Hopefully, Mr. Ciancio, manager of Parks and Recreation, will lend us his cooperation. Going to press, Mr. Ciancio had not been contacted.
There is also a big undertaking for this year's council elections. The last elections held were on a cold, wet day in October of 1969. This;.-Is part of the reason for selecting an earlier date this year. The elections are being scheduled for Friday, August 20, 1971.
There will be 24 vacancies from the five census tracts and two vacancies from the youth representatives. The two youth representatives are to be elected from the total target area.
Those persons who are interested in running for a seat on the West Side Action Council are required to live in their census tract and to get a petition which will be available at the West Side Action Center. The petitions must have 25 signatures of fellow neighbors who also live i'|Y: the same tract.
The West Side Action: Council and the West Side Action Center? staff feel that, with the cooperation and efforts of the residents of West Denver and the people who work in the various agencies, the elections for Council in 1971 will surely surpass the over 1,000 votes received in the last election of 1969
We ask for the community support. We ask for their help, their ideas and invite them to join this effort to avoid loosing services by this agency. Can we all pool together?
Part of the business of this Annual Meeting will be ammending the ByrLaws of the West Side Action Council and receiving reports of activities and programs. There will also be refreshments and entertainment;.
Re-zoning
Application
To Upgrade West Side
An application for rezoning has been submitted to the Zoning Der partment signed by many residents of the area. It was submitted by the West Side Coalition (an organization composed of twelve active organizations on the West Side).
Besides the homeowners and residents who signed, the majority of/ churches who own property in the area also have signed.
The rezoning effort is part of a total comprehensive plan for the West Side for the future total development and conforms to the plans of the present newly formed CRP (Community Renewal Program) board which also is doing a study of the needs of the community for future development.
This rezoning effort has the support also of many city agencies who feel that if the West Side is to remain a residential area, that certain steps must be taken, rezoning being one. Other steps include street patterns and more open green spaces such as mini-parks. These measures are stop-gap measures so that a fully comprehensive plan, which would include shopping facilities, recreation area, etc. can be developed.
Side Recorder from folding. Not only was Jim a charter member of the West Side Action Ministry, but he was also convenor of the ministry for 1968.
At first Jim worked on the financial end of the paper. With Jim Hall, Rachel Guedea, and Pat Geddes leadership the paper has emerged as a voice for the West Side as it relates to the immediate issues of West Denver. In January 1969, he assumed responsibilities as advi sor for the Recorder. Through this direction a larger core of community people have become involved. Also in January 1969, Jim worked with Waldo Benavidez and other Wept Siders in setting up and starting the West Side Coalition. Jim served as an officer during the first year of the organization and spent many hard hours in helping get it off the ground.
In June of 1970, he joined the staff of Inner-City Parish and assisted in giving direction to the ministry of the community.
Jim has also been involved in the West Side Improvement association, and ran the community-wide vacation church school for the Action Ministry last summer.
The various agencies wish Jim, Lora and JJimmy much happiness -m theirnew home-in Southern California.
SORRY!
Due to matters beyond our control, much of the type in this months RECORDER is in smaller type than we normally have. Please bear with us.Ht will be corrected in the next issue of the paper, which will come out the last of July or the first of August.
Survey Of West Side Buildings
The Community Renewal Program has set up a neighborhood office on the West Side, located at 11th Ave. and Santa Fe Drive (2nd floor of the old Santa Fe Hotel). The office is staffed by a planner, Myles Rade-man, and a secretary, Bonnie Arroya. The phone number is 244-0026, and the office will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
At the present time, the West Side Office is conducting a structural survey of every building in the neighborhood. Two men specially trained for this job, Ray Trujillo and Harvey Strange, are out in the neighborhood examining the exterigg or of each building. They are marking the results on forms designed to aid in 'future planning for the West Side.
The Neighborhood Improvement Board, composed of eleven West Side Residents, and which gives citizen direction to the CRPs Planning Activities, met on Thursday, May 6, at the West Side Action Center. Of primary concern was the proposed Greyhound Bus Terminal to be located at Mariposa and Colfax Ave. Also discussed was the plans of The Denver Public School Board and how they effect the West Side.
IMPORTANT!
Please note Even if you voted on May 18, you need to vote again on June 15. This is a run-off election and everyone needs to vote again. Also remember that you need to vote again for your candidate even if he is in the run-off election. For instance, if you voted for Father Garcia or Dale Tooley, you need to vote again for them because your vote on May 18 will not count for the nin-off election.
So REMEMBER-VOTE JUNE 15

Final consideration was given to Council #190 at a public hearing of City Council on Tuesday, June l.The bill, introduced by CounciImen Scavo, Hentzell, and Caldwell, was passed by a vote of 8 to 1 with only Councilman, ErnestMaranzino opposing. The bill prohibits inter-city terminals being located in areas which are zoned B-4. With passage of this bill, Greyhound Bus Lines will not be allowed to have their terminal at the proposed site which was 1100 West Colfax.
The West Side Coalition would like to thank every individual and organization who helped in opposing the proposed bus terminal.
Father Langton Sent to Chicago
Father Edmund Langton, pastor at St. Josephs Catholic Church has been selected to serve as Provincial Consultor of the Redemptorist Fathers in Glenview, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He left this week for his new posT.-
He has been at St. Josephs for about 2Vi years. The West Side will miss him very much, not just his church, but all of us who have been associated with him in any way. This staff member will particularly miss his familiar figure walking in the neighborhood on his way to visit parishioners. A new pastor for St. Josephs has not yet been named.
West Side Family Evicted
John Murphy and his family were evicted on May 5 from their home at 900 Mariposa St. Mr. Murphy stated that he believed that his landlord had them evicted because he believed that the Murphys had reported the unfit conditions in the house to the Department of Health and Hospitals.
Mr. Murphy stated that neither he nor his family had done this. However, the landlord has previously been reprimanded by the health department for neglecting to make necessary repairs on the house. It appears that the landlord thought that it took too much money to re-
pair the house, but he thought nothing of taking the $125 for rent. He also required the Murphys to pay the water bill, which to our understanding is illegal.
It rained while the Murphys and their furniture were out on the sidewalk. Did it bother your conscience at all, Mr. Absentee Landlord? The landlord at 900 Mariposa St. is known to be Mr. Benjamin Naiman, also known as Jingles, of 166 South Sherman St. If it doesnt bother you, Mr. Naiman, please be advised that it bothers us, all of us who call ourselves West Siders and who care about our neighbors.
The Murphy family furniture sits on the sidewalk after they were evicted from their home at 900 Mariposa St.


Letter To Editor:

OUR POSITION
After all the votes were counted in the May 15 election, we have a run-off for the council seat for District 9. The two men in the runroff are Gene DiManna and Father Pete Garcia. Most of the other candidates including, Paul Sandavol, John Zapien, and1 Dennis Campbell have endorsed Father Pete for the council seat. They have joined together to hopefully elect a West Sider and a Chicano to the council. The West Side has long needed direct representation on the council and hopeful ly Father Pete can be that man to help the West Side on the council. The run-off election will be June 15th at the regular polls. If you are going to be out of town or can not get to the polls to vote, you should call Jerry Garcia at Inner City Parish, at 244-2636, for absentee ballots. For goodness sake let's elect a West Sider to the council!!!!

Mini-Parks
Summer is here again and our thoughts return once again to the need of green spaces on the West Side. Last year efforts were made to get mini-parks on vacant lots throughout the West Side. So far, mini-parks have been at the planning stage and hopeful ly can become a reality this summer through the various organizations which are interested. The West Side Coalition will be making efforts to obtain
suitable lands for mini-parks.

Farewell
It is with much sadness that I say farewell to the West Side. I have worked here for the past four years, and my wife and I have lived here for the past two and one half years. There will always be a warm spot in our hearts for the West Side. We have made many wonderful friends here.
If there is one short message that / have for you, it would be to follow your own leaders. During these four years / have been very impressed with the community leadership that has developed. I am also very happy with the agency leadership that we now have on the West Side. You have to go a long way to find better people than, Gil Martinez, at the Action Center, Willy Montoya, at Auraria, Ramiro Cruz-Aedo at Inner City Parish, Waldo Benavidez with the West Side Coalition, Betty Benivedez, as State Representative, and Father Peter Garcia who is running for City Council. These people are all hard workers with the concern of the West Side in their hearts.
I guess that it is the real community people, who have lived hereall or most of their lives who's growth and leadership ability impress me the most. People like Jerry Garica of Inner City Parish, who along with Don Schierling of the Westside Action Ministry, and Waldo Benividez of the staff will be replacing me on the Recorder. Jerry leads a long list of West Siders, such as Ruben Leal, Josephine Perez, Carlos Padilla, Anna Flores, Germaine Aragon, Joe Giron, Manuel Martinez, Rose Rogers, Henry Maestas, Tito Guedea, and Vi Medrona, who have really put alot of work into the West Side during the past few years, and are growing community leaders.
You add to this list the longtime leaders, who in one way or another have been working for the good of the community for more than the four years that I have been here, people like Otto Winters, Leona Partney, Rachel Guedea, Carmen Hodges, Helen Lucero, and all the others.
If all of these people can get together and work together along with the other people on the West Side Coal ition, in the Action Center, and on the Action Council, in the Action Ministry, and in the Inner City Parish, lust think of the strength and unity the West Side would have.
In closing, I wou.ld just say that I hope that the Action Ministry will continue to run the Recorder for the community. I can think of no better ministry in this day than that of honest, open, and fair communication among people.
May God Bless you al

Joe and Cecilia Trujillo
The Joe Trujillos, who operate Empire Cleaners on Bannock, are Model Citizens who are doing their part to make the West Side a Model Community.
They have had their business at 260 Bannock St. for the past three years. It is a small neighborhood-type family business, friendly and warm, the kind that is quickly being replaced by large impersonal commercial enterprises.
Mrs. Trujillo says that it is so friendly she sometimes finds herself worrying about her customers problems.
They keep their property in immaculate order and are will-
ing to work to help and encourage other West Siderstodothe same. Mr. Trujillo suggested clean-up crews of kids to pick up litter in the neighborhood.
They rent their home at 363 Cherokee St. and had nothing but praise for their absentee landlord. They said he keeps the property up, repairs and replaces things as needed, and is interested in maintaining it even though he doesnt live here.
The landlord and tenants have to work together though, said Mr. Trujillo, who admitted that they did some of the painting and keeping up themselves.
The Trujillos are opposed to heavy industry and warehouses moving into the West Side. They would like to see it stay residential, with good small businesses like theirs.
They have lived in the area for the past nine years, coming to Denver from Taos, where both agreed it was difficult to make a good living.
They have a daughter, Theresa, 17 years old, who attends w
