Welcome to our site!
Hello, I’m Dan Bodine, former journalist who logged almost 20 years in the trenches of Texas newspapers once before ditching it all and starting life anew 500 miles away — in Presidio, on the border, deep in the Big Bend country of far West Texas.
Retired from Presidio County there in 2009, after serving as Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace for 17 years; and, concurrently, too, Municipal Court Judge for the City of Presidio for 13 years. In 2010 our family moved to El Paso to be closer to health care professionals.
Noemi, my wife, is a former director of the Senior Citizens Center in Presidio. And our daughter, Maiya Kareli Bodine, attends the University of El Paso on academic scholarships now.
Thanks for dropping by to visit us and we hope you’ll return often to check on us.
