Grand marshal kept El Paso Days going
EL PASO --- Adolph Johnson's independent thinking continues to influence the El Paso Days celebration.
It was Johnson who got the celebration going again when there was some talk of ending it around 1990, organizer Merlin Blaisdell said Thursday. Although the festival had been revived not long before, its future was uncertain.
"When Adolph got involved, he gave it a real home-town-type of feeling," Blaisdell said about Johnson's sponsoring the now-annual horse pull.
