His wealth of knowledge of insurance and coverages helped many protect themselves from catastrophic losses through the years. Personally, Jim Logan was an unassuming, unpretentious man known by most as a faithful friend that was generous with his time to aid others in need. He loved the outdoors; he enjoyed playing golf, softball and had played in an over-40 basketball league. Jim enjoyed hunting deer to a degree, it always seemed as he sat in the deer blind he saw more fences that needed repair and mesquite that needed chopped then he ever saw deer, projects always came became leisure. He enjoyed his early morning coffee and 9 o’ clock coffee drinking friends where certainly everything from the drought to problems concerning local, national and international politics were discussed and certainly resolved. Jim Logan was a magnificent husband and dad. He always put his family first and sharing his faith with his family was tantamount to the love he held for family and his Lord. As a devoted Christian man, he seldom raised his voice to his children and if circumstances seemingly called for vocal firmness, Jim would always apologize for raising his voice shortly thereafter because love always seemed the best method of correction. He was an extremely supportive and loving husband, as illness slowly drained his strength, he spent his final years preparing his wife and his putting his affairs in order as what appeared imminent became more

James DeAlva (Jim) Logan, 1947-2013 James DeAlva “Jim” Logan, 66 of Gonzales, passed away Tuesday, September 10, 2013. Jim was born February 6, 1947 in Yoakum to Obert Clemson Logan and Fannie Mae Thompson Logan. Jim married Nancy Helen Gennings on September 8, 1973 in Dallas.

He has long been working as a Public Relations Representative for RAM RODEOS, attending rodeos while representing RAM Trucks across the country from Alaska to Texas and from Mississippi to Las Vegas. Jim opened Davis and Logan Insurance Company along with Mike Davis in the early 1980’s. Years later, the company
clear. To say that Jim Logan was brave and tough would be a huge understatement. Jim surely read the book of Job in the Bible for he never complained, never let on that his illness was causing discomfort or winning; for in the end his illness did not win. Jim Logan, this kind, soft spoken, bigger than life man went to his Lord and Savior and can love his family . . . his adoring wife, children and grandchildren more completely and fully now than he could on this earth. Jim Logan is survived by his adoring wife, Nancy G. Logan of Gonzales; his loving daughters and sons-in-law, Shylo Dawn Logan Ulcak (Randon) of Katy and Shelley Elizabeth Logan Thomas (Randy) of Katy; and three precious grandchildren, Karli Leanne Ulcak, Madison Grace Thomas and Peyton Elizabeth Thomas, all of Katy.

Reopening the Burma Road: Gonzales’ Upton Ruddock
William Upton Ruddock was born on a ranch near a Gonzales and is 87 years old. In his youth, the consolidation of county schools caused him to begin schooling two years late, but he would close that gap later. Drafted in 1944 he trained at Fort Riley as a cavalryman. It was June of ’44 when Upton and his sweetheart Esma Rae tied the knot, and they would later raise two children back in Texas. Now it was time to become a replacement G.I. overseas. His voyage to Bombay, India took 31 days. Then it was on to Ledo… in Burma, that was conceived to replace the enemy held Burma Road. It was made necessary when the Japanese closed the Burma Road early in ’42. Their victory stopped the Chinese from receiving weapons and provisions from India, thus

cutting the vital military corridor between China and her allies. In the previous 100 years, the British had given little attention to ever defending Burma, and as a result it quickly fell to the Japanese. Upton’s job was supposed be lending support to frontline American troops, but then major Jordan, from Texas, conscripted him to form Jordan’s own personal “Texas” squad in the 457th Troop Carrier Squadron of the Army Air Corps. Upton was “shang-
haied”…never reaching his assigned 124th Cavalry. Hostilities soon began, inflicting severe casualties caused by enemy artillery and snipers. Upton’s duty was to haul water for the infantry on pack mules, and to retrieve G.I.’s that had fallen in action. He also dug many graves and was under fire many times recovering bodies as a litter bearer during mortar attacks. He was also charged with keeping the mules fed with oats that were air-dropped. Later on the M.P.s came looking for Upton, charging him with desertion! It seems the major had not informed the Army of the switch. Upton had wondered why his letters had not been answered, and then he received 87 letters during one mail call! In the months that followed Upton’s original unit, 457th Troop Car-
rier Squadron, was en route to reopen the Burma Road. It was February 1945 and they would soon battle the Japanese during a chaotic battle lasting two weeks…eliminating the enemy from mountain side pill boxes. The next battle, overcoming the Japanese occupying the Burma Road, lasted nearly a month causing heaving casualties. Fortunately the Americans had air cover and were thus able to win the victory. The entire Pacific War soon ended with the Japanese surrender, and the long way home began. The point system determining who went home first delayed Upton. That delay took place in Kaiwan, China, where he spent five long months. It was also here that Upton was awarded the bronze star by General Wittemeyer for his skills as an organizer and provider of facilities for the waiting
troops. Finally it was time for Upton to leave his unit, fly to Shanghai, the embarkation point for sailing to San Francisco, then on to San Antonio for discharge…and home. The opportunity had come to build a successful land, cattle, poultry and business enterprise. Ranchland was cheap and the poultry industry was booming. He chose to raise broilers, but eventually also started a poultry service company of his own. He had learned to test and de-beak chickens, and his skills were in
demand. Later he sold the company, then oil and gas revenues also began to flow. But Upton was never smitten with the desire to simply accumulate worldly goods because during 1975 both he and Esma Rae trusted Jesus and made Him their Lord. Although Esma Rae has been with the Lord for five years now, Upton acknowledges he has been well blessed from above, and continues to share his religious faith in the Gonzales community.

Sunday in September: time for a sentimental cruise
If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend. Doug Larson
In Our View
Thursday, September 12, 2013
It’s a Sunday in September. Super hot on the first day of the month. Dr. Deb, the wife and dog doctor, and my ownself are cruisin’. A pastime we’ve acclimated ourselves to for over three and half decades. Just to set out and about, on a whim, with no particular place to go. In our time together of tolerating one another we’ve traversed many a two-lane and interstate in a number of states where we have received mail. Today we are racking up another little jaunt. And I’m behind the wheel of last year’s anniversary present we jointly presented ourselves. A 1976 MG Midget. Red in color as a sports car ought to be. You see, our marriage didn’t turn out to be a miscarriage. Last November was our 36th year of cohabitating. As we exchanged mutual I-dos’ on Nov. 14, 19 and 76. We held our reception at Luckenbach. Kathy Morgan, one of the owners, gave us the hall rental free as a wedding present. We initially courted on a tennis court (tennis was mighty fashionable during the Seventies – think Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs) in the summer of ’76. The nation’s bicentennial year. Then I, though nine years her senior, mustered up the

Liberals have Texas’ energy industry in their crosshairs
It is no secret that Texas has a big target on its back placed there by the Obama Administration. Texas is the largest conservative state with the most political and economic influence, and it has contradicted and resisted President Obama and his liberal Administration constantly. Attorney General Eric Holder has filed suit against the Texas’ Voter ID law even after it was declared constitutional by the Supreme Court, and Democrats have poured money and manpower into Texas to turn it “blue” or “purple” by 2014. But one of the biggest irritations for liberals in DC is how the Texas economy has grown while most of the nation has whither under Obama’s economic policies. Texas is blessed with a natural resource which is the bane of liberal environmentalists: natural gas and oil. It also has taken a pro-business approach creating an economic environment that few state regulations. The combination has allowed Texas to prosper. Therein lays the background to drama being played out in DC and in Texas. The state’s prosperity goes against the liberals’ economic theory…and something has to give. Just before the August congressional, staunch liberal Democrat Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Tx-
moxey to ask her out on a date on July 3rd. Five months later we became man and wife. Some say it was a whirlwind wooing. I feel it was fated. On any given Sunday of that inaugural year of our time-share it was our custom to cruise out of San Marcos. Perhaps up to the Hill Country. Where we’d pick up some cabrito at Cooper’s BBQ in Llano. Stop at a roadside park near Baby Head. Roadside parks were a dime a dozen back then along the state highways. We’d take our time and pig out on dead goat. Like I said. We had no particular place to go. Maybe mosey over to the southeast for a run to nowhere. Look over there. Why it was just my nature to always brake for a sign that read “Cold Beer.” And the little place there in Sublime had just that.
We sipped some suds as a grandmother showed us a picture in Crayon her granddaughter had drawn for her. And mused she sure wished she had a frame to put it in. So we backtracked to Hallettsville and purchased a simple little 8X10 frame and returned to Sublime. A grandmother was awfully pleased with the strange couple that happened to stop simply because a sign read “Cold Beer.” Another Sunday fueled us over to Sweet Home. Where I again gave thought to Baby Head. And wondered if Sweet Home and Baby Head ever featured high schools. Goodness, what would the mascots be? Picture the Sweet Home Sweethearts taking the field on a Friday night. Or the Baby Head Baldies. Imagine going off to college or the military and boasting you were the starting tackle for the Sweethearts or that you played post for the Baldies. Anyway, this was in 1976. Back when we were young. This was a year when a gallon of gas ran you .57 cents and teenage boys lusted and drooled over posters of Farrah FawcettMajors and two amateur electronic enthusiasts developed the Apple computer in a California garage while a young ballplayer by the name of O.J. Simpson signed a record $2.9 million contract to suit up with Buffalo. Well today, Farrah Fawcett and Steve
Jobs have passed on and O.J.’s in the pen and gas is running just under $3.50 a gallon. And in ’76, only hippies and mad scientists were seen with chin whiskers. In 2013, about 98% of the boys and men and 16% of the women sport mustaches and goatees. I digressed. We are on the road. With the lid down. Taking our time. Listening to some oldies on a CD (8-tracks have long ago faded into oblivion). Steering the little MG at a leisurely pace. We swing by the Shiner Catholic Picnic. Where a passel of folks have congregated. Probably as many church-going followers are in attendance today as the tally of rednecks and hippies that witnessed the coming of Willie Nelson at his picnic on the 4th of July in 1976. Anyway, we’re just a couple of senior citizens. Sporting about on a given Sunday. And that’s what life is all about. Taking a course that finally leaves you breathless from running around in circles trying to make ends meet. With that thought in mind, I can eye in on the Dr. Deb and figure I can always live on less when I have something to live for … down the road. Most of American life consists of driving somewhere and then returning home, wondering why the hell you went. John Updike

Understanding the criminal justice system
When most people think of the criminal justice system the first thought that comes to their minds is one of the many sensationalized television programs that can be seen day and night on a variety of television channels. Most of the fictionalized crimes depicted on these television programs are solved, often through the use of some cutting edge James Bond-type technology, by a handful of people using laser gadgets and super glue. These lone wolf detectives, crime scene technicians, and district attorneys scurry about our television sets solving the impossible and performing miracles. All in under 60 minutes! The reality is that it takes a lot of highly trained, dedicated people, a lot of time, coordinating their efforts to achieve a factual solution to a criminal incident. In fact, depending on the type of criminal offense alleged, there can be a huge number of professionals involved. Some of these professionals are patrol officers, criminal investigators, victims’ rights advocates, crime scene technicians, physical evidence forensic examiners, forensic interviewers, prosecutors, etc. Sometimes, there can be more than one law enforcement agency involved for a variety of reasons ranging from jurisdictional questions to areas of specialization. As an example, let’s look at a sexual assault. Ideally, the incident is reported to law enforcement through a 911 call, but can also be reported in a variety of other ways. Patrol officers and/or criminal investigators are
30) from Dallas verbally attacked Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-R-21) from San Antonio for subpoenaing the Environmental Protection Agency for the research data they use to justify air quality regulations. Johnson apparently accepts as gospel that mankind is responsible for global warming, and the EPA is protecting humanity. She told Smith, “you’ve exhibited a baffling disregard for the scientific process and the academic and government scientific community in our country”, and claimed it was “simply mind-boggling.” However, Smith, as the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee is attempting to force the EPA to release the science it uses as the basis for costly air regulations, which are being used more to punish the energy industry than to help mankind. The Committee has repeatedly requested the data for the past two years with little to no cooperation from the EPA. What is “mind-boggling” is that John-
son ignores how the EPA is playing the same game the IRS is playing regarding the Tea Party targeting scandal…just ignore Congress. Meanwhile back at the ranch (literally) in Texas, Cliff Frohlich, associate director of the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas, co-authored a study claiming a wave of small earthquakes in and around the Eagle Ford formation was caused by hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”. The study is being used by liberals who are ready to shut down energy productions in south Texas. Jim Efstathiou Jr. reported in Bloomberg on Aug. 27, that Frohlich said, “We
don’t see any evidence that injection in the Eagle Ford appears to routinely cause earthquakes.” But why let the facts interfere with the emotionalism of liberal arguments? Energy production in the Eagle Ford has grown to about 600,000 barrels a day according to the Texas Railroad Commission as result of fracking. This means economic growth to a region of Texas that needs it, and energy independence for America. Texans should not be distracted by other issues, while we lose our economic independence to phony science and scare tactics. Texas should also not be punished for being successful.

sent to the victim’s location to take the initial report and gather any evidence available at the scene of the crime. If needed, emergency medical services (EMS) technicians and paramedics are dispatched as well. When deemed necessary, a victim’s advocate is also asked to respond to the victim’s location to provide crucial emotional support for the victim and help guide them through this process. If the victim is a juvenile the parents or a legal guardian is notified, if appropriate, and a forensic interview is scheduled at the local regional Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). This CAC interview is performed by highly trained, professional forensic interviewers. Depending upon how many hours have passed since the sexual assault occurred, a medical examination is performed at a hospital by highly trained medical personnel (medical doctors or specially trained registered nurses) which includes another detailed forensic interview and a forensic
examination. If the victim is an adult the same process occurs, with the exceptions that there is no CAC interview and no family members are notified unless requested by the adult victim. Every precaution must be taken to protect the privacy of the victim. Any evidence collected at the scene of the crime is then properly packaged and held in the responding law enforcement agency’s evidence room and, if appropriate, taken to the Texas Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory at one of 13 different locations throughout the state of Texas. Any available witnesses to the incident are located, identified, and interviewed. Depending upon the available physical and testimonial evidence a suspect (or suspects) is located, interviewed, and/or arrested. The arrest of the suspect, or suspects, may occur with or without a warrant depending on the circumstances. It is tempting to look at the sexual assault example above and think that these types of investigations are routine. Wrong! Every criminal investigation is unique and there is no cookie cutter approach. When the investigation is completed at the local law enforcement agency level, it is packaged in its entirety and forwarded to the appropriate prosecutor’s office for criminal prosecution. But it doesn’t end here. There is much, much more to this story, and in the weeks to come we’ll examine the different levels of the criminal justice process more closely.

Nixon to sell old fire truck
By BAIN SERNA
Yoakum holds tax rate steady
By CEDRIC IGLEHART
NIXON – The Nixon City Council on Monday approved and discussed putting the Nixon Volunteer Fire Department’s old fire truck out for public bids. Several months ago, the city had purchased a new and modern fire truck for the fire department. The older 1987 Seagraves fire engine that is no longer in use and service will be put out for bids soon, with an official public advertisement in the newspaper. “It is not in good working condition,”
said City Manager George Blanch. “It is just sitting there and needs lots and lots of work.” Interested persons will be able to bid up until Oct. 11, at which date bidding will be then be closed. The bids will then be opened at the Oct. 14 City Council meeting, where the council will then select and approve the highest bidder. Also during the meeting, the council approved the date of Sept. 23 for a meeting to approve the annual budget and approve the set property tax rate for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. The proposed property tax rate is at $0.3856 per $100 valuation.
CITY: Council skeptical, but OKs marketing plan
Continued from page A1
YOAKUM – The Yoakum City Council agreed to adopt a tax rate of $0.09087 during its regular meeting Tuesday night. The tax rate, which is the same as it was for 2012, will go into effect after the council holds a public meeting before finalizing the rate adoption. The council also adopted a $17-plus million budget for Fiscal Year 2013-2014. The balanced budget includes revenues and expenditures for the General Fund
($6,514,093), Utility Fund ($10,889,279) and Airport ($24,150). In other business, the council: • Continued its Juvenile Curfew Ordinance. • Authorized the use of City property on North South Street for the Crossroads Youth Football League. • Revised the City’s Employee Wage and Salary Plan to include incremental salary adjustments on an average of 3-5 percent across the board for Fiscal Year 20132014.
In commemoration of the sacrifices made by firefighters on 9/11, the staff at the Gonzales H-E-B on Wednesday treated Gonzales firefighters to lunch to honor their dedication. Helping lay out the spread were H-E-B employees David Novosad, Debra Havel, Jose Silvestre, Donna Spahn, Lisa Arnic, Melody McBride, Leodeli Galvan and B.J. LaBuhn. (Photos by Dave Mundy)
Barnes told the Council that CSA had a lengthy record of experience on similar projects, including a $44 million project in McAllen and a project in Portland similar in scale to the one proposed for Gonzales. Council members also approved the preliminary and final plats for Avalon Park LLC for the 1835 Village, but Barnes said changes proposed by the developer will force Avalon Park to re-plat and re-submit the project in the next few weeks. The subdivision is planned for on 55 acres on the northeast side of town, a tract known to locals as the ‘Burchard property.” During Monday’s meeting, the Council also reviewed preliminary plans for the proposed Library construction from architects Richard Edwards, Tim Gescheidle and Ron Hobbs. The Council also heard a presentation on planned changes to the city’s employee retirement plan through the Texas Municipal Retirement System Plan. During a special meeting Sept. 5, Council gave tentative approval to the city’s marketing plan to attract tourists, but council members offered some advice: let’s get visible. The Council voted 4-1 to approve the Tourism Marketing Plan as presented by Loretta Shirley of Rockin’ S Marketing, with Councilman Tommy Schurig casting the “nay” vote. Council gave its approval contingent on the city’s Tourism Advisory Board making regular reports on the efficiency of the advertising. The plan would expend some $136,000 over the next year marketing the city in a number of travel and Texas-related magazines and websites, but several Council members voice the opinion the advertisements could be even more visible. “I think billboards would be more visible than some of these $10,000 ads,” Councilman Clarence Opiela said. “I know when I’m leaving Dallas, I see billboards for visiting Shiner.” Councilman Gary Schroeder said he’d been surprised to see nothing promoting the city in the Texas Municipal League magazine.
“Hello, Texas wouldn’t be here without us,” he exclaimed. Shirley told the Council that she would re-investigate using highway billboard advertising, but that her research had shown it often gets ignored by motorists. “Some of those billboards are very expensive, too,” she noted. Schroeder later motioned for approval of the plan with the proviso the Tourism Advisory Board and Shirley consider at least some billboard marketing in the plan. “Maybe you can shower us with billboards,” he quipped. During the meeting, Council tabled for further study a proposal to provide a tax incentive for businesses locating in the city’s historic downtown district. The policy initially proposed by Barnes would have provided a property-tax rebate to commercial projects built or renovated in the city’s historic district, but Barnes said the Council might want to consider expanding that area or even approving the rebate for those building new or redeveloped homes in the district. The Council directed Barnes to continue studying the issue and bring it back for approval at the November meeting. In other action, the Council: • Approved an update to the city’s personnel policy allowing employees to sell up to 24 hours of sick time back to the City; • Reviewed the city’s Comprehenisve Financial Audit for the fiscal year ending March 31; • Established a policy allowing Mayor Bobby Logan and Barnes to administratively approve letters of support for various organizations seeking grants; • Approved the sale of beer by the Knights of Columbus during Come and Take It; • Approved the holding of a Pet Parade on Confederate Square Oct. 26 to benefit the Gonzales Learning and Career Center; • Approved the operating budget for 2013-14 for the city and the Gonzales Economic Development Corp. and set the city’s tax rate at $.1845 per $100 valuation; • Authorized the pass-through of creditcard charges when used to pay for various permits.
GCUWCD makes testing a priority
By DAVE MUNDY
COUNTY: Server upgrade set
Continued from page A1
The Gonzales County Underground Water Conservation District board of directors on Tuesday opted to move an unexpected surplus in fees from a water transporter into a fund to ensure continued water quality testing in the county and particularly in the Smiley area. In approving the district’s 2013-14 operating budget, as well as the budgets for the district’s two Well Mitigation Funds, the board was told the district would be receiving an additional $10,000 in unexpected fees from the canyon Regional Water Authority over the next year, and board member Barry Miller moved those funds be shifted to specifically fund groundwater quality testing. During the public comment portion of the meeting, former Smiley Mayor Donnie Janicek and Cost resident Pat Rosato had urged the increased testing. Janicek said the increased pumping activity because of oilfield exploration and production had drawn down the city’s well and could endanger the city’s water supply. “Smiley sits about two miles from the ‘bad water’ (geological) line,” Janicek said.
“Please keep a watch on our water quality. The mayor told me this morning the Smiley well (level) is dropping) ... and Smiley doesn’t have the money to treat water.” Rosato echoed Janicek’s concerns, and also urged the board to consider expanding the Western and Eastern mitigation funds because oilfield activity will continue to impact landowners with irrigation wells. The board voted to set the district’s tax rate at .0050 per $100 valuation. In other action, the board approved several irrigation well renewals and new permits, but tabled action on a request for an exception to the district’s mitigation rules by one landowner whose well had run dry. The landowner had contracted with an outside agent for an emergency lowering of his well pump, but the district’s rules require the mitigation work be done from a list of approved contractors. The contractor used had not responded to the district’s previous advertisement to establish its list of approved contractors, and the board directed General Manager Greg Sengelmann to re-advertise the mitigation opportunity to enable other contractors a chance to get on the list.
at the same time to increase the speed of communications. Cruise suggested replacing the two existing Sheriff ’s Department servers with a newer, single server which would have double the capacity. An upgrade to the backup system would also move backups out of the departmenty to a secure location. Commissioners approved the upgrades, also asking Cruise to provide a more detailed assessment of the county’s computer systems at a future meeting. Also Monday, the Court approved a bid from CST Brands, Valero for a parcel of
county-owned property on Loop 131. The property will be used as part of the entrance to a new Valero convenience store location. In other action Monday, the Court: • Approved an updated County purchasing policy; • Approved advertisements for flexible road base materials and liquid asphalt; • Authorized maintenance of the Texas Community & District Retirement System plan for 2014; • Approved a number of budget amendments and announced the court will meet to formally adopt the 2013-14 tax rate on Sept. 16.

On this day in 1866, the first producing oil well in Texas came in at a depth of 106 feet at Oil Springs in Nacogdoches County. The Melrose Petroleum Oil Company, which had been organized in December 1865 by Lyne Taliaferro (Tol) Barret and four partners, began drilling in the summer of 1866. Taliaferro, a Nacogdoches County merchant born in Virginia in 1832, had first contracted to lease 279 acres near Oil Springs in 1859, but the Civil War put a temporary halt to his exploration. The first well produced about ten barrels a day, but the low price of oil and the political unrest accompanying Reconstruction made the development of the field unfeasible. Barret suffered extensive financial losses and returned to the mercantile business in Melrose. Later he saw the field developed with an oil boom in 1887. Barret died in 1913. Though he received little acclaim during his lifetime, in 1966 memorial markers were dedicated at his grave in Melrose and at Stephen F. Austin State University to mark the 100th anniversary of the drilling of the first producing oil well in Texas.

First Lutheran congregation celebrates ELCA anniversary
On September 8, First Lutheran Church of Gonzales celebrated with nearly 10,000 congregations across the USA the 25th Anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate our 25th anniversary as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. The ELCA is a church that rolls up its sleeves and gets to work. On Sept. 8, across the USA nearly 4 million members, nearly 10,000 congregations joined for a dedicated day of service.
On Saturday, September 7th members of First Lutheran cleaned the Jewish cemetery off the Harwood road as they remember and honor not only their Lutheran, but also the Jewish heritage of their faith. Pictured from left are: Paul Watkins, Brent White, Steve Pirkle, Marilyn Neuse, Beverly Pirkle, Teresa Heximer, Savannah Heximer, Grace Watkins, Nathan Neuse, Gloria Haug, Richard Krum, Pastor Ildiko Rigney, Gary Heximer, Herb Karnau, Elgin Heinemeyer, Carlos Rigney, Eric McKinney, Darrell Haug.
On Saturday, Sept. 7 members of First Lutheran will clean the Jewish cemetery off the Harwood road as they remembered and honored not only their Lutheran, but also the Jewish heritage of their faith. On Sunday, Sept. 8, First Lutheran joyfully invited the community to join them in celebration in worship at 10:30, under the theme “Always being made new”, and after worship for lunch in the Fellowship Hall. This Sunday will also mark the beginning of the “Explore God” sermon and study series, held at First Lutheran, as well as in other Gonzales churches, in our effort to create meaningful and helpful conversations among people of any or even no faith convictions.

Samson can’t believe what he just saw on the tube
You know Samson has been watching TV and he is so disgusted. He said that this is the craziest thing he has ever seen. He even called his side kick Pe Pe in to watch TV with him. Samson said that when he went to catch a mouse he didn’t go out and tell all the mice that he was soon going to make a raid on the mouse kingdom. Samson said that he kept all of his information a secret because he didn’t want them to beef up their resources. But here was this guy speaking from a microphone telling the whole world who he was going to strike and when, and with what. Samson said things were bad over there but things were bad here too. And you had to consider

Sandi’s Country Fried News
that despite what that man with the microphone said that a cat had to keep on eating so he would have to keep on catching mice. It sure was going to be hard to keep it down to one tasty mouse meal. Then Samson wonders what excuse the guy in the big White House is going to use then. And Samson woke up from the most horrible dream he had ever had. The annual fundraiser for
the Belmont Volunteer Fire Department is September 21st. Ask any member of the fire department how you can help or to buy raffle tickets. September has five Sundays so Belmont United Methodist Church has their Breakfast before their singing service. So come and join them in the newly renovated Belmont Community Center for breakfast. The Belmont Community Center Club will be meeting at their regular time at the center on the 4th Tuesday, Sept. 24th. The pumpkins are coming. Over at the Monthalia United Church the pumpkins are scheduled to arrive soon or the pumpkin patch, so get ready.
Come & Take It is almost here!
Call for information. Also selling metallic pennants. Perfect for decorating your floats.
Forgiveness: people are what they are
In San Antonio I was the proud owner of my personal Botanical Gardens. Literally hundreds of vines, plants, bushes and ornamental trees graced every square foot of my front, back and side yards. Like most Master Gardeners, I was addicted to greenery of all kinds and needed a chlorophyll-fix daily. My plants lived in perfectly amended soil; each receiving the proper light, moisture and nutrients. Hun-
PRAYER TIME: Joe Kotwig, Mr. Bill, Jesse Esparza; Bill and Marie Lott, Louise Jones, Sandy Ingram, Aunt Georgie Gandre; Danny and Joyce Schellenberg, “Sarge” Duncan, Rhonda Pruett, Aunt Frances Gandre, Bubba and Sara Roecker, Glenn Mikesh, Lillie Lay, Maria Castillo, Phyllis and Alton Oncken, Selma Vickers, Landis, Keith Glass, Teresa Wilke, Linda Denker, Case Martin, Sandi Gandre, Aunt Betty Gandre, Margie Menking, Joy Carson, Richard Hidalgo Jr., Arthur Casares, Shirley Dozier, Marie Schauer, L.A. Lindemann, Jr.;Graham Kelley, Esther Lindemann, Anna Lindemann, Lanny Baker, Judy Wilson, Bob Young, Marguerite Williams, and our military and their families, and for some rain for this parched earth, and for those who a near the wild fires in CA We need lots and lots of prayers for L. A. Lindemann, Jr. He is in St. David’s Hospital in Austin. He is to be started on radiation to help shrink a mass that is pressing on a vital organ and causing a lot of pain. We are all pulling for you LA and praying too.
They had a great Grandparents Day at Monthalia United Methodist Church. They had fruit, little pigs in the blanket, blueberry loaf bread—that even those on weight watchers could eat. Lori Lindemann went to visit with her father in Texana Nursing Home for the day. Save your little box top things and give them to Lori Lindemann. They can acquire useful items for kids in school with them. Fix a little jar in the kitchen to put them in because they are usually on cereal boxes, hamburger helper boxes etc. Lately I have seen on several newer types of items. Every little bit helps. For those out there who are playing Peewee football and the next one above it, I hope that you are having fun while you learn something. Sean Allen is a coach in Gonzales. It takes a lot of dedication and time on their part too. I don’t mean any offense, but the Pee Wee players are so cute because their pads on their suits etc. makes them look like nothing but a football uniform rolling around out there on the field. Then when they try to get up off the ground, they fall right back down on the ground!!
They are so short that falling doesn’t hurt them. My great great nephews Quinn and Gavin play near Seguin. Please be careful as everything is very dry. The Komoll’s had a little grass fire. The grass is waving high. When the wind is blowing, it will catch what is left of the grass and burn like crazy. We have a chance for rain from the coast, so pray that we get some. And we did get some. We just had a little shower today with thunder, wind, and everything. It was great. The world here welcomed it with open arms. It smells so great and settled the dust. Yesterday it bypassed us and it was a big swirl of dust that came our way. Oh they are having an exhibit of paintings at the Oil Patch Museum in Luling until this Friday. Some of these paintings are for sale. Our friend Sandra Zoboroski has three paintings on exhibit and for sale. She did not start painting until recently. There are several others from around our area that have them on exhibit. It is a short notice, but maybe you would have time to see it. Have a good week and God Bless.
dreds of worms were purchased to keep the soil aerated and Lady Bugs and Praying Mantis were imported to keep the bugs away. Needless to say…everything I planted thrived. Our move from San Antonio to the country meant having to carefully uproot and transport at least 6 specimens of everything I owned. This was an arduous task that only a fanatic gardener and devoted husband would undertake. We filled our 16’ trailer to capacity 4 times before we were able to complete the mission and all arrived at their new home in fine condition. However, this new environment with its sandy loam was foreign to me. Transplanting my pampered treasures without having them go into shock required a delicate balance in temperature, soil, water and the right location. I placed them all under the shade of a tree, watering them daily as I studied the environments around my property, then began to design my new garden to ensure that they received just the right amount of shade and light, and were protected from these high winds. Since sandy soil does not have the nutrients needed to make plants flourish, adjustments to the soil were made. Great care, time and money were spent on keeping hundreds of plants alive and well nourished. But, it paid off. They began to grow and blooms of all colors and fragrances sprung forth; attracting hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. I was in heaven again! Every morning I’d take a quiet stroll, with coffee cup in hand, to start my day meditating on God’s goodness and creative genius. That is, until the morning the cows came. That horrible morning, instead of peace and beauty, I was greeted by complete chaos and destruction. The first thing I noticed was that my very expensive specimen tree had been uprooted by the cow still chewing on one of its branches. I soon realized that most of my one-ofa kind-plants had been eaten to the ground. The blood drained from my head for a moment, and rapidly rose again when I saw dozens of cows partaking of the few plants still standing. As frightened as I am of cows (remember I am a city gal), I charged at them full force. They bolted in all directions as I ran frantically waving my hands yelling non-sense at the top of my voice. My husband shot out of the house, ran interference to keep the cows from running over each other, and herded them to safety as I stood in stock looking at the mess they’d left

behind. Not realizing that cattle proprietors consider cows of more importance than landscaping I took the liberty of mentioning this incident to the person who owned the cows, hoping for at least an apology. The gentleman looked blankly at me, nodded his head and bid me a good day. His response surprised me, but I worked hard at considering his perspective and managed not to get offended. However, I began to hate cows. Just watching them graze in the neighbor’s field made my blood boil. The nerve!!! I hated them a lot for a very long time. Then, one day I noticed how every animal expresses itself according to its nature, and resolved that none of them can help doing what they do. So, I forgave them. Years later this incident helped me understand, and forgive, the way some people are. Paul describes these people by their behavior to the Galatians, saying; ‘it is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yetnever-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable additions; ugly parodies of community.’ (The Message) The bible says that we are all born with this craving to appease our desires, and will continue to ‘feed the compulsions of selfishness’ if we don’t choose to let Christ control our lives. Salvation changes our selfcentered nature into one that is motivated by God’s Spirit. Paul tells us what happens when we live God’s way… ‘He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.’ Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see this type of transformation in abrasive, abusive people? Let’s not take offense or hate people who can’t help behaving the way they do. It’s in their nature. Let’s pray for a change in their hearts instead. God keep you safe until next time… love, eloise www.loveeloise.com

Sharelunker program starts Oct. 1
ShareLunker catch remain the same. The voice number, which is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the season, is (903) 681-0550. If poor cell phone service prevents use of the voice number, anglers can leave a phone number (including area code) at (888) 784-0600. That number is also monitored 24/7 during the season. Whether you expect to catch a ShareLunker or not, it’s a good idea to program those numbers into your phone before the season begins. Also, if you have a scale, check its accuracy. If you don’t have one, find a place near where you fish that has a certified scale and will weigh fish, such as a feed store, grocery store or bait shop. Official ShareLunker weigh and holding stations have been established at a number of reservoirs; a list is at http://www.tpwd.state. tx.us/spdest/visitorcenters/tffc/ sharelunker/holding/.

ATHENS—The 28th season of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Toyota ShareLunker program will begin October 1. Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass from Texas waters, public or private, between October 1 and April 30 may submit the fish to the Toyota ShareLunker program. Fish will be picked up by TPWD personnel within 12 hours. Anglers entering fish into the Toyota ShareLunker program receive a free replica of their fish, a certificate and ShareLunker clothing and are recognized at a banquet at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens. The person who catches the season’s largest entry will be named Angler of the Year. If the Angler of the Year is a Texas resident, that person also receives a lifetime fishing license. Prizes and funding for the banquet are provided by Toyota, which also provides a Tundra pickup truck for Lanny Smalley of Athens, Ala., caught this 13.0-pound use in picking up and returning largemouth from a private pond near Ben Wheeler in the majority of lunkers and their 2012 on a black-and-gold spinner bait. The fish was offspring. 26.75 inches long and 18.25 inches in girth. The numbers to call to report a
includes a searchable database of all fish entered into the program along with pictures where available. Information on current catches, including short videos of interviews with anglers when available, will be posted on www.facebook.com/ sharelunkerprogram. “Like” this page and you can receive notification and photos of catches as soon as they become available. ShareLunker entries are used in a selective breeding program at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) in Athens. Some of the offspring from these fish are stocked back into the water body from which they were caught. Other ShareLunker offspring are stocked in public waters around the state in an attempt to increase the overall size and growth rate of largemouth bass in Texas. The Toyota ShareLunker Program is made possible by a grant to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation from Gulf States Toyota. Toyota is a long-time supporter of the Foundation and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, providing major funding for a wide variety of education, fish, parks and wildlife projects.
ATHENS — Individuals or organizations that have made a lasting contribution to freshwater fishing in Texas may be nominated through December 31 for
induction into the Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. Nominations may be made in the categories of industry, angler or media. The nominee must be a Texan or Texas organization. Individuals

Three Gonzales ISD campuses recognized in new state rankings
By DAVE MUNDY
Gonzales schools did well in the first release of the state’s new accountability system, with three campuses earning recognitions in various categories. The State of Texas introduced a new school-ratings system this year which uses a number of criteria to rank school districts and campuses against other campuses which have similar demographic makeup, trustees were told by curriculum director Ron Bragg. The new standards rank districts either as “Met Standards” or “Needs Improvement,” and GISD earned the former ranking. Individual schools were also measured on their performance in several content areas based on the performance of demographic groups on the new STAAR tests. Gonzales Junior High earned a recogni-
tion for its students’ performance in English/Language Arts, while North Avenue Intermediate and Gonzales Elementary both earned recognition in Math. GE also earned a recognition for Student Progress, judging students’ progress from one year to the next. During the meeting, trustees also recognized the achievements of FFA students from Gonzales High School. This spring, the students competed in the Texas Parks & Wildlife Ag Clays State Trap Event and earned a number of awards, taking first place in the boys’ team and girls’ team competitions and second place in the mixed-team event, as well as a number of individual recognitions. Superintendent Dr. Kim Strozier reported the district has 2,766 students enrolled, and “we expect to hit 2,800 soon.” During the first few weeks of class, the district had a 99.18 percent attendance rate. Student Council members Sam Wenske, Victoria Kusak, and Kyle Chunda welcome visitors to Grandparents Day. Principal Neely Yackel, standing in center, was on hand to welcome the many grandparents to Shiner Catholic School’s annual Grandparents Day celebration.
BAD WEATHER The Shiner Catholic School will use the facilities of radio stations KYKM 94.3 Yoakum and KTXM 99.9 Hallettsville; KCTI (1450 AM) Gonzales to inform parents of the cancellation of a school day or any change in the school day hours in the event of severe weather. Announcements will be made through the facilities of these radio stations as early as possible. FACULTY AND STAFF Faculty and staff members reported for five days of in-service training, which began Monday, August 5.
“BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT” On Wednesday, August 7, the school hosted a “Back to School Night”. During the early afternoon, all classrooms were open for students and parents to meet the teachers.

Lady Apaches dominant in sweep of Poteet
GONZALES – The Gonzales Lady Apaches volleyball team officially graduated from perfecting the finer points of the game to more advanced strategies and plays. Gonzales (7-13) swept the Poteet Lady Aggies, 25-8, 25-9, 25-9, Tuesday evening at the GHS Special Events Center. “We have done all of the little things right,” Lady Apache head coach Sarah Moreno said. “We got our technique down and we are moving to all of the right spots.” The Lady Apaches are playing with lots of energy after their second straight home win and second win in three matches. “The girls are pumped. I am pumped,” Moreno said. Gonzales will now move to the advanced stages with district looming. “It is time to take things to the next level,” Moreno said. “We are going to working on some different plays (in preparation for district).” Gonzales was behind a little in the opening set 2-0, but came back 5-4 on an ace from Cassidy La Fleur and a kill from Molly Barnick. Gonzales then went on a 15-3 run with a Danyelle Glass ace, three aces from Madison Musick, a

Kendall Fougerat kill, a Brittany Walker kill and a kill by Alex Finch. Later, kills from Brianna Miller and Glass finished off the set for the Lady Apaches. In the second game, aces from Fougerat and La Fleur, along with kills from Glass and Barnick put the Lady Apaches ahead 11-3. Poteet was able to score a couple of points, closing down to 16-5. Gonzales then ended the second set on a 9-4 run to go up 2-0 in the match, getting the final point on a Miller kill. In the third set, the Lady Apaches opened an 11-5 lead on service from La Fleur and Musick to go along with kills from Finch, Brittany Walker and Fougerat. Gonzales continued with seven more straight points on the service of Danielle Flowers and two plays from Fougerat. The Lady Apaches scored seven of the next 11 points, including a kill by Gretchen Singleton, to close out the match. The Gonzales junior varsity won 2-0 (25-7, 25-16) and the freshman won 2510 and 25-21. Gonzales will host an alumni game at 6 p.m. this Friday at the GHS Special Events Center. All former Lady Apache players are invited to attend. Bailey Connell gets the ball back over the net while teammate Danyelle Glass looks on during Gonzales’ win over Poteet Tuesday night.

pard, running back Kaden Hardt and wide outs Jimario Grounds, Dalton Herrington and Trenton McGee. “Our defense has to make sure the secondary coverages are correct and get to where their wide receivers are,” Kornegay said. “We cannot let them have the big play.” Flatonia at Somerville The Flatonia Bulldogs are riding a little higher after notching win No. 1 of the season, a 21-0 shutout of Hallettsville Sacred Heart last week. “We played better, we played hard, and we played physical,” Flatonia head coach Chris Freytag said. “Both of our lines controlled the line of scrimmage, we protected the football, forced turnovers and played well on special teams. Overall, a good game for us.” The Yeguas are 0-2 on the season after a Week 1 loss to Thorndale, 54-12. “They are an athletic team and are improved from last year,” Freytag said. “Their players are playing hard.” The Yeguas run a spread attack on offense and throw the ball 60 percent of the time. Quarterback Nathan Coronado returns from last year and will be helped out by running back Jarrette Hallford, wide receiver Keanu Graves and offensive lineman Tristan Like. “We will have to contain their speed and tackle well,” Freytag said. Somerville runs a 3-4 defense with man-to-man coverage in the secondary. Key players on the defense are lineman Eduardo Vega and linebacker DeMarcus Foster. Freytag said Flatonia must run their ball-control offense and protect the football. Blanco at Luling Luling takes its 2-0 record up against the Blanco Panthers in the second straight home game for the Eagles. “Our boys found a way to beat a team that was real good last year,” Luling head coach Colby Hensley The Panthers are also perfect after two games with wins against Canyon Lake and Comfort. “Blanco is very disciplined and does not make a lot of mistakes,” Hensley said. “They are physical and the kids know their assignments.” Blanco runs the Wing-T on offense, with the leading rushers Adrien Dominguez (33-167) and Colton Elrod (20-122). Quarterback McKay Adamson had 46 yards rushing with one touchdown and has completed 12-of-18 passes for 162 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. “We have to make sure our defense wins the line of scrimmage and deals with all of the pulls and traps from Blanco’s line,” Hensley said. Linebacker Aikmon Elrod has 20 tackles this season to lead the Panthers’ 4-3 defense. “We did a good job of blocking in our first two games and must get better against Blanco. We have get on and stay on our blocks,” he said. “Our line and receivers have done well to contribute to our offensive success, and we must not have any breakdowns against Blanco.” Nixon-Smiley at Yorktown The Mustangs close out non-district at Yorktown on Friday at 7:30 p.m. “We did some good things against Three Rivers but we had too many turnovers,” Nixon head coach Carlton McKinney said. “Fumbled six times and lost two of them. We need PREVIEWS, Page B2
A much better job by the Yoakum Bulldogs in their second game against Sinton, despite falling 35-28 and to 0-2 on the year. Head coach Brent Kornegay said Yoakum made improvements in Week 1. “We averaged 6.5 yards a play on offense and I felt that was a good night for us,” he said. “The offensive line did better. We just need to keep getting better.” Yoakum will face the high-powered Hallettsville Brahmas at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hallettsville. The Brahmas routed Ganado 43-6 and shut down Shiner 39-0 in their first two games. The Bulldog offense will need to control the line of scrimmage and continue to be physical to match up against Hallettsville’s very stout defense. Yoakum’s top play makers are Tre’Vontae Hights, Terrence Hall, T.J. Hights, Chase Hermes and Ausitn McCoy. Yoakum’s defense will have their hands full with Anessa Carrizales serves the ball for the Gonzales all of the weapons on the 7th Grade B volleyball team during Monday’s match Brahmas’ offense including against Yoakum.

If you coach junior high athletics, you love sports or working with youngsters. Or both. The Gonzales Junior High has three new coaches for girls athletics — Sahara Bragner, Brooke Schneider and Jordan Pinson. “My job is fun and I like being around kids,” Bragner said. Bragner is a 2008 graduate of Victoria Memorial High School where she competed in basketball and track. She graduated from Texas Lutheran Uni-
to clean that up.” versity in May 2012 with a Nixon has next week degree in Kinesiology and open and travels to Karnes was a Para Professional for City on Sept. 27 for its first GJH, Page B5 district game. “We need to make sure we are sharp against Yorktown,” he said. Yorktown is 1-1 on the season as well after falling short to Goliad, 28-7, last week. The ‘Cats are multiple on offense as they use slot, veer and spread formations. “It will be a good test for our defense because Karnes City runs all three formations,” McKinney said. Quarterback Jacob Garcia anchors the offense with Brooke Schneider the help of tailback Logan Romans and fullback Brandon Smith. On defense, Yorktown lines up in the split and the main player is linebacker Trevor Reed. “Our offense will need to know what they are doing,” McKinney said. Shiner at Schulenburg The Shiner Comanches have another tough match up as they travel to Schulenburg for a 7:30 p.m. game tomorrow. “Schulenburg is another top notch team on Jordan Pinson our schedule,” Shiner head
coach Steven Cerny said. “They have lots of speed and are sound on defense.” Schulenburg’s offense is a spread attack and will also lineup the quarterback under center. Quarterback Ross Bluadu (28-of-47, 473 yards, three touchdowns, three interceptions) has size, strength and a big arm. “We expect them to pass a lot,” Cerny said. His main receiving target will be Jeff Larara ( 13-280, two touchdowns) and the Shorthorns’ leading rusher is Dameien Houston with 113 yards on 13 carries. “We have to prevent big plays and contain their speed,” Cerny said. “We have to be able to tackle in the open field because if you make a wrong move, they are gone.” Schulenburg runs the 5-2 on defense with a sizeable line, strong and quick linebackers with a good secondary. Gerardo Montoya is the team’s leading tackler this year with 15 total tackles. “We have to improve our timing and our reads on the veer attack,” Cerny said. Cuero at Beeville Jones The Gobblers head to Beeville after garnishing their first win last week against Victoria West, 35-
28. Cuero fans can expect another good rushing effort from running back D’Anthony Hopkins on the offensive side of the football with help from Tre Miles and Zech Hopkins. The Trojans are 0-2 on the season following last
week’s 55-21 setback to Corpus Christi Ray. Jones’ offense will be run through quarterback Cameron Kremers and will be helped by fullback Tristan Pelitire. The Trojan defense will lead on the field by linebacker Jacob Flores.

Bastrop bounces Gonzales to spoil home opener
By CEDRIC IGLEHART

GONZALES – After being nipped on the road at Bastrop last year, the Gonzales Apaches were looking for a little retribution Friday night. Unfortunately, revenge would not be in the cards as the Apaches were uncharacteristically plagued by turnovers and untimely penalties to help the Bears walk away from “The Reservation” with a 28-8 win. “I give credit to Bastrop because they came out inspired and we came out flat,” said Gonzales head coach Ricky Lock. “We started off real good, but it went downhill from there. It’s just disappointing to get this kind of performance out of some of our players.” “I thought we would play better than that, but we didn’t and I have to take some of the blame for that. But we’ve got some good football players in our locker room, so we’ll regroup. It’s not the end of the world, we’ve just got to get better.” After racking up over 600 yards rushing a week ago, Gonzales could only manage 214 against the Bears. Alyas Ramirez led the way with 131 yards on
17 carries including a 60yard run that surprisingly was the Apaches’ only play over 20 yards all game long. “It was a frustrating night but the sun is going to come up tomorrow,” Lock said. “It might not be as bright as it was yesterday, but we’ve just got to get back to work. We have three more games to get things right.” Gonzales scored on the game’s opening drive, a four-play set that was highlighted by Ramirez’s long run and capped by his oneyard plunge. Bastrop (1-1) answered in their initial drive by marching 65 yards in four plays to include Cameron Barron’s 41-yard scamper for a score. The Apaches had their next drive stall, due in part to a 15-yard intentional grounding penalty, and things got worse when D.J. Gonzales’ punt attempt shanked off his foot and only traveled 17 yards. Bastrop took advantage of the good field position and kept their drive alive when Barron threw complete to Mason Homesley for 32 yards on fourth down and four. Four plays later, Logan Allen caught a hitch pass and ran it in from 14 yards for another Bear touchdown.

HALLETTSVILLE — In Friday’s home opener against Shiner, the Hallettsville Brahmas made no special adjustments or changes. They just played their game to near perfection. #12 Hallettsville (2-0) blanked the sixth-ranked 1A Shiner Comanches 39-0 as quarterback Nate Kowalik threw two touchdown passes to Jimario Grounds and Trenton McGee while backs Tim Sheppard and Kaden Hardt had one rushing touchdown each. Dalton Herrington ran punts of 80 and 63 yards back for touchdowns. “We have a lot of respect for Shiner and know they are well-coached. We know we have to be on the top of our game to play and win
against people like Shiner,” Hallettsville coach Tommy Psencik said. “We were able to make a few plays. Nothing special. We just carried out a game plan. He credited the success of the offensive and defensive lines in helping Hallettsville to victory. “We had questions going into the season about our lines,” Psencik said. “We refer to our offensive line as ‘heroes’ because we depend on them that much. “ Shiner, which ran for 364 yards Aug. 30 against Industrial, was held by the Brahmas to just 140 yards on the ground. “Going into this game, we knew Hallettsville was very good,” Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. “We would have to play perfect to have a chance to win.” Shiner had two high snaps on punts which led
to decent field position for Hallettsville and had trouble getting anything done on offense. “We just did not execute early on,” Cerny said. “Once the Brahmas jump on you 14-0, the momentum goes their way and they are going to start teeing off on you. We are not a throwing team. We can line up and try but it would not have fixed anything.” He said what concerns him is Shiner being able to work on and improve on minor things. The Brahmas took the opening kickoff and drove past the 50 but a couple of incomplete passes by Kowalik forced Hallettsville to punt. They were able to pin Shiner at their 5. Shiner got as far as the 19 but had to punt as well and Hallettsville had a short field to BRAHMAS, Page B4

drive, starting at the plus38. Two plays later, a pass by Kowalik in the flat to Jimario Grounds and a block by Herrington sent Grounds to the end zone and the 7-0 lead. On the next drive, Shiner went three plays and out. Punter Hunter Mraz had to deal with a bad snap and just threw the ball out of bounds. The officials flagged Shiner for intentional grounding and Hallettsville got the ball at the Shiner 6. The Comanche defense stepped up and made a play as Brian Kloesel picked off Kowalik and got the ball out the 30. A few plays later, Hallettsville recovered a Tyler Patek fumble and three plays later, Kowalik hooked up with Trenton McGee for a 19-yard score and a 14-0
Brahma Lead. On the next drive, Shiner got a nice 15-yard counter from Marcus Coleman but the drive eventually stalled and Mraz had another bad snap. The Comanches were fortunate as Hallettsville was called for a running into the kicker foul, giving Shiner a first down. The Comanches got all the way to the Brahma 32 but on fourth down, Jacob Stafford was stopped shy of the marker and Hallettsville took over. Kowalik handed off to Tim Sheppard who raced up the sideline for a 68yard score and it was 20-0 Brahmas. On the next possession, Shiner got a first down on a rare pass — Patek to Blake Michalec for 13 yards to the Shiner 41. Five plays later, Shiner had regressed back to the 35 and had to punt. Herrington fielded the ball at the 20, found some
space behind some blocks and was gone for a 26-0 lead. Hallettsville went up 32-0 before halftime as they got another Shiner punt at the 36 and drove 63 yards in six plays. McGee hauled in a 42-yard pass from Kowalik to the Shiner 7 and two plays later, Hart scored from the 3. In the third box, the teams traded a couple of turnovers and punts before Herrington ran his second punt back (63 yards) for a 39-0 lead with no time left in the quarter. In the last half of the fourth quarter, Shiner had a very promising drive from its 36 to inside the red zone. Chad Neubauer and Coleman had some productive runs but the game ended as Shiner was at the Brahma 15, with Michalec taking the last two snaps at quarterback.

NOTICE OF TAX REVENUE INCREASE
The COUNTY OF GONZALES conducted public hearings on August 26, 2013 and September 9, 2013 on a proposal to increase the total tax revenues of the COUNTY OF GONZALES from properties on the tax roll in the preceding year by 41.93 percent. The total tax revenue proposed to be raised last year at last year's tax rate of $0.3554 for each $100 of taxable value was $7,220,181. The total tax revenue proposed to be raised this year at the proposed tax rate of $0.2708 for each $100 of taxable value, excluding tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year, is $10,243,305. The total tax revenue proposed to be raised this year at the proposed tax rate of $0.2708 for each $100 of taxable value, including tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year, is $10,311,234. The Gonzales County Commissioners Court of COUNTY OF GONZALES is scheduled to vote on the tax rate that will result in that tax increase at a public meeting to be held on September 16, 2013 at COMMISSIONER'S COURT ROOM, GONZALES COUNTY COURTHOUSE, 414 ST. JOSEPH ST. GONZALES, TX at 9:00 AM.
This notice concerns the 2013 property tax rates for GONZALES COUNTY EMERGENCY SERVICES DISTRICT #1. It presents information about three tax rates. Last year's tax rate is the actual tax rate the taxing unit used to determine property taxes last year. This year's effective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. This year's rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers start rollback procedures. In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value. Last year's tax rate: Last year's operating taxes Last year's debt taxes Last year's total taxes Last year's tax base Last year's total tax rate This year's effective tax rate: Last year's adjusted taxes (after subtracting taxes on lost property) ÷ This year's adjusted tax base (after subtracting value of new property) =This year's effective tax rate (Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.)

Puzzle Answers On Page B12
Thursday, September 12, 2013
It was noted wit Ambrose Bierce who made the following sage observation: “All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.” When the famous “Hollywood” sign was constructed in 1923, it read “Hollywoodland.” It was an advertisement for a new housing development and was expected to be in place only about a year and a half. The sign became such a recognizable symbol of the new film industry in Los Angeles that it has been refurbished and rebuilt as necessary for 90
years. In January of 2004, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of maggots as a medical device for cleaning wounds. If you’re planning a trip to Laramie, Wyo., you might want to make a pilgrimage to the Ames Pyramid. At the end of a 2-mile dirt road, in the middle of featureless pastureland, you’ll find this 60-foottall monument seemingly plunked down at random. The pyramid was built in 1882 near a line of the
Union Pacific railroad and in honor of the railroad’s financiers. It was thought that the monument would be a welcome distraction to railroad passengers traveling through the plains of Wyoming. The decline of railroad travel, however, caused many tracks to be removed, including the line that ran by the pyramid. Now only cows are left to admire this relic of the industrial age. The 1979 horror movie “Alien” has become a cult classic, but not many people realize that it was originally titled “Star Beast.” *** Thought for the Day: “Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and 50 cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the 50 cents.” -- Marilyn Monroe
