Name should be spelled “Ascarate.” I’m an old El Paso hand.

Looking at the aerials, it looks like it could be reopened?

My favorite teacher in grad school lived right behind the Ascarate, when he was younger he buried a cable from the last row of speakers all the way to his home across the ditch/canal to his second floor room. We had a party at his house and that old speaker was still hanging by the window. By this time it was showing moving in Spanish. I lived on the other side of Ascarate Lake on Ben Swain.
