Just in a days work

Buffalo Springs Lake

      Recently a group of us went to the lake to shoot the first "Best of Keeping it Local and Locally Owned" segments.  It was my first time going to Buffalo Springs and was pleasantly surprised at what it had to offer.  It being so close to Lubbock, I figured less green...more dirt.

In a stunning milestone for justice in Central America, a Guatemalan court recently charged former dictator Efraín Rios Montt with genocide for his brutal war against the country’s Mayan people in the 1980s — and Pamela Yates’ 1983 documentary, When the Mountains Tremble, provided key evidence for bringing the indictment. Granito: How to Nail a Dictator tells the extraordinary story of how a film, aiding a new generation of human rights activists, became a granito — a tiny grain of sand — that helped tip the scales of justice.
