The March to Stop Executions has been held each October since 2000 in cooperation with several Texas and national anti-death penalty organizations, including Texas Moratorium Network, the Austin chapter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and Texas Students Against the Death Penalty.
The first march was called the "March on the Mansion" and was held on October 15, 2000. The second and third marches were called "March for a Moratorium" and were held on October 27, 2001 and October 12, 2002. In 2003, the march name changed to "March to Stop Executions". Clarence Brandley, who had been exonerated and released from death row in 1990 after spending nine years there, spoke at the 2003 march, saying "I was always wishing and hoping that someone would just look at the evidence and the facts, because the evidence was clear that I did not commit the crime." The "5th Annual March to Stop Executions" was on October 30, 2004. The "6th Annual March to Stop Executions" was held October 29, 2005 in conjunction with the 2005 National Conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, which came to Austin at the invitation of the march organizers.
The "7th Annual March to Stop Executions", which was sponsored by a record number of 50 organizations was held October 28, 2006 and included family members of Carlos De Luna and Cameron Todd Willingham, who both had been the subject of separate investigations by The Chicago Tribune that concluded they were probably innocent people executed by Texas. Standing outside the gates of the Texas Governor's Mansion with hundreds of supporters, the families of Willingham and De Luna delivered separate letters to Governor Perry asking him to stop executions and investigate the cases of Willingham and De Luna to determine if they were wrongfully executed. After DPS troopers refused to take the letters, Mary Arredondo, sister of Carlos De Luna, and Eugenia Willingham, stepmother of Todd, dropped them through the gate of the governor's mansion and left them lying on the walkway leading to the main door.

The GMC Denali XT Concept, unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, is the ultimate in form and function with performance thrown into the mix.
February 2008 -- First there were sedans, then came minivans, and shortly thereafter SUVs became the choice of mom, dad and the kids. Now vehicles merging the best of cars, vans and SUVs known as "Crossovers" are fast becoming the people hauler of choice for families.
But picking out a new car these days can be tough. Many Americans want better gas mileage, but don't want to give up the room of the bigger vehicles they've grown accustom to. Since Crossovers are car-based rather than truck-based, the ride and fuel economy are better then traditionally larger vehicles. And better design and technology has given some the aerodynamics of a sports car, while still, unbelievably, having room for eight.
The Chevrolet Traverse, unveiled at the Chicago Auto show, is the latest example of a 'do-just-about-anything' Crossover. Designed by a mother of four, the Traverse has family-friendly features with an emphasis on space and security -- able to tote around one's entire family, as well as groceries, bikes, and equipment in one trip.
Introduced at the Chicago Auto Show, the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse is an expressively styled, well-equipped crossover that gives customers people-hauling and cargo-carrying capability typically found in larger SUVs.
With styling cues inspired by the acclaimed '08 Chevy Malibu, the Traverse delivers refined details with strong proportions and the bold front-end appearance found on all new Chevrolets. Traverse will start production in the third quarter of 2008 at GM's Spring Hill, Tenn. manufacturing facility.
"We think the Traverse is the right vehicle at the right time," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "It has great looks, utility and safety, with a driving experience typically found in smaller vehicles. But it delivers this with three rows of seating -- including a third row that fits adults -- and class-leading cargo space. The Traverse is following the formula that is bringing Chevy back to a new generation of consumers -- great styling, loads of class-leading features and tremendous value."
