"For a lot of people who live in a lot of the rural parts of this country getting healthcare can be challenging at best in the more rural you get the more challenging. It is people out in far west. Texas which learned day is the desert mountains out almost to New Mexico. They described their medical landscape as beyond rural where arrived at the hospital hospital in an ambulance. If there is an ambulance to be had can take close to three hours. But there's something else standing between those far west Texans and emergency care when they might not even think of until they need an ambulance to show up their front door. MARFA public. Radio's Sally Beauvais. Takes it from there eavesdrop on an emergency medical scanner and presidio Texas and there may not be much to listen to the population's just over four thousand but when emergency calls do come in the six can be unusually early high local. EMT CEDO Pondo remembers one such call. That was a cardiac arrest and the when the fall when we tried calling them and what should against three remiss took us about fifteen minutes to get there by then it was too late. What took so long trying to find the patient's house it and it's frustrating? It's embarrassing when you go to the wrong address and you realize that you're on the wrong side of town. Hurry up and make it to others. I in town and it just. It's a nightmare. First Transponder's hearsay. It happens regularly dispatch release an address they rushed to the scene often using Google maps and find. They're actually in the wrong place. Turns out this. This happens all over the country several years ago the federal government ordered cell phone carriers to improve location technology for the benefit of people who call nine one one but problems problems persist in rural America. A twenty seventeen study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Found ambulance wait times in rural areas or about fifteen minutes. It's almost double the national average in presidio there are layers and layers of issues standing between ambulances and people's front doors to demonstrate EMS director Melinda. Richardson took me out for a drive or Subaru. Let's pretend that you have received a call. Two four eleven rosedale she emphasizes this is just a hypothetical example but especially good one within city limits. There's a Rosedale Avenue Rosedale drive and and Rosedale Street. Luckily on this call. We know which one we're looking for four one one Rosedale. I enter the address into Google maps and and we get going onto Glen Boulevard. So is the split so no idea no streets no street signs this is not what she says body sign. It is just the beginning on commerce street toward harming avenue then turn left onto harmon avenue. Okay this is another example harmon and is the old street name. Ralph England is the new ones so Google maps there other discrepancies have duplicate numbers. Some houses don't have numbers at all. Aw should this before this went should before eleven. But I don't see a a house number on that particular house here and in many other areas street names and house numbers are relatively new phenomenon. Many presidio residents don't actually know what their official addresses they might have one assigned by the gas utility and another from the telephone company and those might be different from what the city has. I went to talk to Alma Martin about this. She's he's terrified. Does Planning and Zoning Board do you know where Alma Martin Houses Martin Street and her house are clearly marked but I still got lost using Google maps. Trying trying to find it but I really really want to get on nine one one addresses in order. Martin says before the Times of smartphones and car. GPS physical addresses weren't really a part of life in presidio residents relied on p o boxes for mail. The town was smaller and closer knit and everyone knew where everyone else lived. But Times have changed. The city recently currently secured thirty five thousand dollars to get things in order Martin's proposing a door to door address audit so they can finally asked people to put their number on their front door for ambulance services for fire departments for law enforcement services for the poor. UPS Guy but they're Fedex guy. She says once it's done maybe the city can even contact. Google you've arrived. Lost in presidio. I'm Sally Beauvais for marketplace.

"Want to miss this. Subscribe to last day now. Wherever were you get your podcasts? One Phoenix's managers at the club where she was dancing on. The Dallas area took a job at the districts. Right when it opened. He told her she should come. got a piece of all the money that was being spent in the Permian Basin. It was a hundred dollars a barrel back then so girls were making anywhere from three to ten grand a night. So that's when I was really really booming was pretty amazing. You guys speak throwing ones everywhere like you would make it rain on stage mega rain in Cabanas. They're just they're just coming in to blow their check. Really I mean like you really didn't have to fight for money at all. It was just like being thrown at you. Part of being a traveling dancer is being prepared to deal with a different set of rules laws and requirements and every state city or county dancing. Sometimes you have to get a license from the local authorities often simply crossing a city or county line. Means the difference between a club where you have to wait to get approved before dancing and one where you can just go right to work since Rick's is just outside of Odessa. City limits extra county officials determined the laws there and everyone who works at ricks from the manager to the janitor has to get a sexually oriented business or SOB license. Phoenix told us about what it's flake. When the sheriff comes out to make sure everyone is carrying their SOB card? Sometimes they bring like three or four people sometimes they roll in with like twelve to eighteen people for it. It kind of hurts our club a little bit because like people are in there and not saying that they're doing anything bad but when you see that many cops in one place it Kinda does get a little intimidating so we we try to get them in and out as fast as we can a couple of years after rick's open then the dancers had to cover up because of a dispute with the State Controller's office over the Texas poll tax as in Stripper Pole. It's a requirement that strip clubs is pay the state five dollars per customer. Texas was the first State to create a tax of this kind in two thousand seven and today only a few other states. Have something similar. Both Odessa clubs currently part of a lawsuit that argues that the state keeps moving the goalposts on the definition of nudity that determines which establishments have to pay up the state says that Rick's back taxes for several years rix lawyers claim that the way they're dancers were dressed at the time dispute meant that the club was only providing clothes entertainment entertainment and so it was not subject to the tax. We did lose some customers because we went from being able to see titties to having to like cover came up with paint by is. It was t-shirt paint pretty much. or or pasties. If you bought your own pasties but I found out that I was allergic to latex. So the pasties because they would always leave a little a little mark on me whenever I would take them off so I just stuck with the little paint that they gave us. Phoenix says that they couldn't wear thongs things or even bikini bottoms. They had to be honest full coverage shorts which are referred to in court filings as volleyball shorts. We Kinda Winter Hassle because some girls butts are bigger than others so like when you start dancing they raise up so it's like uncontrollable but I'm glad that phase over though though the lawsuit is ongoing in state records show that Rick's paid. The poll tax in two thousand. Eighteen Phoenix says and the dancers had already gone back to going topless and wearing thongs which is still oh how they dress today. Dancers Jaguars the club right down the road but just over the city line into a DASA also worked topless both clubs are owned by our CIA seattle hospitality. A publicly traded company that started with the Rick's cabaret chain USA when I opened the Odessa Rix it. CEO told shareholders holders. He expected it to become one of their top. Earning clubs and that's among properties in Manhattan Miami and Dallas Braden counts just as much the sex industry as in any other business and RCI is savvy enough to know they need diversity in Odessa. Jaguars and ricks have totally different vibes. Actually actually a lot of people not to make Jag sound like it's a bad place to be but there. There are people who do like to Jags. In people who think Rick's is a lot more classier we do so serve alcohol whereas jags is A.. B. Y. O. B. Club. There's a lot of class. Porous nece at Strip clubs. You'll see people from all kinds of backgrounds. Who never hang out together sharing shots at the bar? There's also a lot of lateral stigma within the business. The Way Phoenix called call herself and entertainer and not a stripper. That's the way that clubs that call themselves gentlemen's clubs refer to their dancers. rix definitely brands itself as an upscale gentlemen's Club there's bottle service and VIP booths available on the floor it's got more buttoned up atmosphere than Jaguars. It's more blue blue-collar sister club where the cans of white claw hard Salzer we bought in were dumped into a hardware store bucket full of ice. We didn't record inside either. Wherever clubs but this booming bass that we taped from the Jaguars? Parking Lot is characteristic of the party atmosphere inside. There were a lot more big groups of guys rather them solar visitors or pairs and the club layout focus on the center stage which had polls that had to be at least fifteen high the dancers we saw did some wild and impressive tricks some of them swinging from the ceiling rafters because it's Byu and you only have to be eighteen to get. An Jaguars has a reputation. Jason is something of a rite of passage for the young people of the area. This podcast host Chris. Wallace told me about how he and his friends derived Odessa together to go to Jaguars for the first time the summer after they graduated high school I used to work at DC and Austin which is another part of the RCA hospitality empire fire and it had pretty much the same of Jaguars. We've got plenty of Post Prom. Visitors young soldiers from Fort Hood and Fraternity Pledge Parties. Jaguars has only been in the city limit since late. Two Thousand Eighteen Winter Desa annex the land it sits on and took over jurisdiction from the county the city then decided it was time to update the Old Sexually Oriented Business Ordinance which was written in one thousand nine hundred eighty six when assistant city attorney down Jones presented the new. Sob Ordinance to the city council in November. The first issue he brought up wasn't how much the dancers took off or alcohol policies. It was human trafficking first and foremost it makes human trafficking our because that is one of the most important things that we are expense. Damas referring to the increasingly common assumption that strip clubs and other sexually oriented businesses are rife with trafficking The Oda so be ordinance aims to address trafficking by requiring clubs supposed to sign with the human trafficking hotline number in each solve the bathroom and the dancers answers dressing rooms and each entrance and exit and also by adding trafficking convictions to the very specific list of offenses that can result in someone being denied night and sob license. which includes prostitution sexual assault and obscenity street? Let's say you were young late. You were I show. These suggestions didn't go completely unchallenged. A couple minutes after down spoke city Councilman Malcolm Hamilton chimed. In that's the bit I mean I agree with you without you. Think is discriminatory that because let's say I've been convicted prostitution. You say maybe this is. The own job is available to enjoy Johnson Councilman Young Kid Mississippi. My Dad always stolen futures. Don't let your the the exchange continued down acknowledged that the policy is harsh. But he said it's necessary for the safety of the general public and the list of disqualifying criminal charges aren't me different from the existing Actor County Ordinance that Governs Rix an up until the annexation. Dan Governed Jaguars. This ordinance goes even further it Rix someone coming in from out of town can work while they wait get their permanent license. It's at Jaguars under the new rules. Everyone who gets a job. There has to wait until their licenses approved. That can take up to fifteen days once they get that license. They can't keep it in a purse or a locker they have to wear it displayed on their person. What Jones didn't say is it no trafficking? Charges have come out of Rick's or Jaguars in Odessa. Two men were arrested last summer on charges of trafficking. When to who underage girls were found to be stripping a Private Club Bet the SOB ordinance doesn't apply to such clubs only strip points and those charges didn't stick The sex trafficking is how Dan Justifies the stricter ordinance for Jaguars. So what's actually going on here. Next time on boomtown we continue our look at the sex industry in the Permian Basin. I was in a prostitution sting where I was actually in this guy's car car in the middle of giving him oral sex sneak grabbed me by the hair and pulled me up and flip me around and put me in handcuffs and honestly I thought it was a serial killer.

He fell a Nunez runs the import export business next door. You would think that I'm a dance hall that there was some social event going on because of the amount of cars that you would see when it was open. She says her shop was like a makeshift waiting room for the driver's license office. People standing in mind would come in to get out of the heat or the Colt or use the restroom sometimes they'd even ask for help on their paperwork. And now that it's closed. They're coming in asking what they're supposed to do. And it is sad. It is very sad. Because it's like. This old gentlemen, when he asked me, you know, then what do I tell the PS when he stops me? I said we'll tell him to come in the office and give you a drivers license DPS. The department of public safety is in charge of the driver's license program in Texas and an emailed statement a spokesperson for the department explained that intermittent closures happen in rural offices across the state before Presidio is office closed an employee from alpine was coming down once a week to open it up. She left the job and DPS thinks it will take months to hire and train a new employee for the same position. What is the solution for rural Texas, and is this it that's precipitous city administrator Joe portfolio. He's been watching this issue in the Texas legislature in September and advisory committee was considering a proposal to close. Eighty-seven driver's license offices across the state Presidio was on the list. The idea was to redistribute resources to more densely populated areas. But lawmakers argued the closures would unfairly impact rural Texans, and they rejected the plan. At the same time over the last couple of legislative sessions. Lawmakers have made it an option for county cities and towns to provide certain driver's license services, and that gives portfolio some pause. The intent of the law is good or at least was another option. He's worried that rural communities like Presidio might feel like they have no choice, but to absorb the position when local DPS offices close even temporarily. Well, you just place the financial burden on the county or this municipality, and they already have very tight budget, and city-sponsored employees aren't allowed to conduct driving tests. Just issue renewals and duplicates portfolio says that's the main reason Presidio is going to wait it out for the department of public safety to hire. Someone new. I'm not saying the solution is going to be easy. I understand that predicament. They're in. I just want them to recognize it predicament. We're in deep ES is aiming to reopen Presidio office by the end of January. In the meantime, residents are experiencing real life console. Quences like this high school senior, Melanie labor. I just got take it for three hundred and for not having a nascent and speeding. She took driver's Ed last year along with eighty five other Presidio teenagers, but she couldn't get an appointment for driving test before the office close. Now, she needs to find a way to get herself to alpine fort Stockton. But until then she says, she'll keep driving without a license a have to because my mom wakes. And then I have to take my little brothers to school in had to come myself to school. So I just tried to drive safe for people like you sell a new knee as who runs the business next door to the driver's license office. The closure sends a certain kind of message. I mean, it seems like rule American keeps losing and losing and losing. And I think the people that make the budgets do not recognize rural America. A DPS spokesperson says the department will request more money during the upcoming state legislative session to staff driver's license office. Says across Texas for here. And now, I'm Sally Beauvais and Presidio I will not complain about the DMV again here now is the production of NPR in WVU are in association with the BBC World Service. I'm Robin young.

She says this feeling of frustration is nothing new the driver's license office in Presidio used to be open five days. A week. The old hours are still listed there on the door and vinyl stick on lettering. And it didn't just serve Presidio people from all of the surrounding border communities.
