State Senator Shapleigh makes ASARCO announcement at UTEP last Thursday night

"In a surprise announcement last Thursday night at UTEP, State Senator Eliot Shapleigh said that the Asarco land next to UTEP and I10 had been only minimally impacted by the smelter. 'All it needs,' he explained to the audience, 'is a good power-washing!'

One of the founding UTEP-Student-members of Get the Lead Out Analisa Cordova was ecstatic at the news, which would allow for development of that land by UTEP. Suggested uses for that land presented that night included a UTEP research facility or expanded student-housing. Students explained that there wasn't enough housing at the present Miner Village location."
