A pair of shootings have left local authorities with plenty of questions, but very few answers thus far. According to a press release issued Wednesday morning from Gonzales police chief Tim Crow, on Tuesday, June 11 at approximately 5:45 a.m., Gonzales police officer Trey Tunis was dispatched to the emergency room of Memo-

ceived the wound, none of which made any sense, read the release. As of this writing we do not know if the victim was shot in town or somewhere else. No reports of shots fired were received. That incident came on the heels of an alleged drive-by shooting that took place in Gonzales one day prior. On Monday, June 10 at approximately 9:17 p.m., Gonzales police officers were dispatched to the area

Nixon Council steps on brakes


Venerable tree comes down

Cannon Correspondent

City of Gonzales crews cut down the huge oak tree in front of the Shuler House on St. Lawrence St. on Tuesday morning. The tree, long a fixture of the Gonzales skyline, had recently begun to lean over the street and its lower-hanging branches have been struck by traffic on the street, leading to concerns the tree might fall over and damage vehicles or people. The city made the decision to cut the tree down after consulting experts to ensure its removal would not damage other large old oaks in the area. (Photo by Mark Lube)

Paul Schurig, 1939-2013 Paul Wood Schurig was born on October 3, 1939 in Gonzales to Marie and Wally Schurig. Paul left this world all too soon on June 5, 2013 after a battle with dementia and Alzheimers. He was the oldest of two sons growing up in Gonzales. Paul was a bright and athletic child, playing football, basketball, track and baseball. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing. Paul married Doris Jean Grossman of Shiner on November 4, 1961. They had two sons, Kyle Glen Schurig, born on November 12, 1962, and Randy Lane Schurig, born on July 31, 1967. Paul worked many jobs growing up, finally settling in as service manager for 27 years at Krueger Chevrolet in New Braunfels. Paul also, as his wife and children did, showed horses on a competitive level. As he grew in years, he chose to judge horses on a professional level. He held judges cards for paint, pinto, appaloosa, palomino, mule and pony associations. Paul donated his time and facilities to the local 4-H club and offered his expertise in the showing area from the judges viewpoint. Paul and Doris founded Twin Pine Stables in New Braunfels, a facility that offers both boarding and training in both Western and English riding and lessons for beginner and experienced riders. Paul is survived by his, two sons, Kyle Schurig of Buda and Randy Schurig of New Braunfels; six grandchildren, Austen, Quinn, Rainer, and Ronan Schurig of Buda and Douglas Schurig and Kristina Schurig, both of San Antonio; his brother, Tommy Schurig and wife Pat of Gonzales, and their children Ira, Ina and Ian. Paul leaves behind a legacy of dedication and love that will be sorely missed by his children and grandchildren and all of the many students, colleagues, and friends who were touched by his kindness. The family hosteda public visitation on Wednesday, June 12 from 69 p.m. at Zoeller Funeral Home, located at 615 Landa Street in New Braunfels. The funeral will be held on Thursday, June 13 at 10 a.m. in the chapel at Zoeller Funeral Home, with a graveside ceremony to follow at Guadalupe Valley Memorial Park, located at 2951 State Hwy. 46 South in New Braunfels.

Betty Gibson, 1937-2013 Betty L. Jackson Gibson, 75, of Gonzales, met the loving arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 8, 2013. Betty was born on September 29, 1937 to J.O. and Daisy Jackson in Luling. She married Shelton Gibson on July 20, 1957 in Hardin. She spent her life working in various career fields, however, the last job she had before retirement was working in a group home facility for adult women. She enjoyed her time in this position leading and guiding these women to become as independent as possible in their home and community. Upon retirement, she greatly enjoyed spending precious time with her grandchildren and nurturing her flower gardens. She was a member of Memorial Heights Baptist Church. She diligently raised her family with strong Christian beliefs and loving discipline to guide their focus on the narrow path in which her children could find their own relationship with their Lord and Savior. Betty is survived by her daughters, Janice McGill and husband Neal of Princeton, Joyce Gibson of Gonzales, and Julie Belin and husband Jeromy of Gonzales; son, Marvin Gibson and wife Kathleen of Emory; grandchildren Edwin McGill and wife Jennifer, Shelton McGill, Julie Ann McGill, Kimberly Gibson, Travis Gibson, Abigayle Belin and Blayne Belin; greatgrandchildren Kate and Jackson McGill; sister, Shirley Gibson and husband Elwyn of Gonzales; brothers, Donald Jackson of Gonzales, Richard Jackson and wife Kay of

We join other residents of Gonzales County in anxiously awaiting the signature of Gov. Rick Perry to House Bill 696. Its legislation that is past due, and very welcome. The bill, sponsored in the Texas House by State Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt and in the Senate by State Sen. Glenn Hegar, authorizes the County Attorney in Gonzales County to prosecute felony cases normally reserved to the District Attorneys office. It was sent to the Governor on May 27. In the past, the county attorneys in Gonzales, Lavaca and Guadalupe Counties turned over all felony criminal cases to the DAs office and that has proven to be a problem. Residents of Gonzales County have been rightfully disappointed by the conduct of those prosecutions, which all too often have ended with charges dropped, investigations pulled and slap-onthe-wrist sentences which have turned vicious and violent criminals loose back onto our streets. Local residents have maintained with some evidence to support that claim that the 25th Judicial District District Attorneys office is not interested in Gonzales County, since Guadalupe County is where the votes are. Sentences imposed by the 25th Judicial District judges in Guadalupe County cases tend to be far more severe than the ones they hand down here. The DAs office, for its part, has said that law enforcement in Gonzales County has not done a good enough job of putting together prosecutable cases to win those convictions and tougher sentences. Local law enforcement members have said the DAs office isnt receptive. HB 696 now puts the burden of prosecution and investigation on our own County Attorneys office. We have faith that Gonzales County Attorney Paul Watkins and his staff will pursue these local cases with more vigor and will foster better communication with local law enforcement.

Awaiting the Guvs signature

Great news for oil landowners: Im adoptable!

I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men, and German to my horse. Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire While I was out at the Main Street Concert Friday night, I happened to catch a snippet of conversation out of the corner of my ear. It sparked the germ of an idea. The speaker was one of our out-in-the-country types, a gent probably 10 years my senior with worn jeans, boots which have obviously seen work and a shirt you can tell is used to being sweat-stained (but it was clean and neatly pressed this night, Dances with since this was a public Chihuahuas event.) He was busy chatting it up with a couple of General others like Manager himself men of the land, men who have been raising and working cattle for more than three decades. Theyre used to talking about rainfall and hay and politics, but on this night they were talking about something else. I finally gave in and let them start drilling out at my place, the speaker said, pausing to take a swallow from a can of the National Beer of Texas. Got my first royalty check yesterday. I dont know why I finally gave in. Shoot, I dont need the money! And my kids, theyve all got their own thing going on, that money wont mean nothing to them, either. The light-bulb going on over my head probably lit up Confederate Square like it was mid-day. I know there are a lot of folks scattered around the region who are in the same boat as this gentleman: older, established, already secure, empty nesters. They face a difficult moral dilemma: what to do with all that money? I have the perfect solution to their dilemma. Adopt me. Its the perfect answer. You wont wind up destroying the lives of your own children by suddenly infusing gobs of cash into their ordered world, while at the same time you will be helping to provide a massive economic stimulus throughout the region. For starters, I am eligible for adoption: my own folks both passed on several years ago and I rarely hear from any of my brothers, so theres absolutely no family loyalty to conflict with. Its true that I turn 55 this year, but dont worry about that age thing. People have been telling me I act like a teenager for years. Im not picky about my last name, since Hey Mundy! Its Monday! got old along about the second grade. Ill be proud to be a loyal (insert family name here). Likewise, Im not a stickler about joining a family that is not of Scots-Irish-Prussian-Cherokee descent. Im a whiz at languages: I can learn Czech, German, Polish or any combination thereof. Race and ethnicity are also not a factor. I already speak a smattering of Spanish, and Ive always wanted to check off that box next to African-American on my census form. When you introduce me as your new son, you can always follow it up with a shrug and say: Hey, hes adopted. You get the security of a loyal son whos not going to try and horn in on your family business and best of all, you wont have to find a place for me. Im a city boy: I dont know the first thing about raising cows or hay or goats or corn or chickens. Just get me a list of important days I need to remember, birthdays and anniversaries and such, and Ill make sure you get the best cards ever. Ill be glad to show up at the family reunion and carry on in such a way that youll be forced to tell Uncle Herman and Aunt Gertrude, Sometimes I wish he was red-headed so I could beat him. Now when we talk about spending your royalty money, lets be clear that I dont tend to spend frivolously. I was real big on wine, women and song when I was a younger man, but no longer. Thus, I dont need a mansion filled with Playboy bunnies; a nice apartment with two or three should do just fine. Nor would I need to spend money on shiny fast European sports cars. Id be quite happy with a custom Hummer instead. Likewise, I dont over-indulge my own children. No diamond-studded dog collars for Itty Bit and Chesty, although I have promised Chesty I would buy him a chihuahua-sized Abrams tank. While its true that I am a bit eccentric, I can assure you that the royalty monies I inherit from you will go to worthwhile and philanthropic causes. As Steve Martin once said, Id like to try and help a lot of young mothers get their start. Now I realize that technically, I can only be adopted by one family at a time. Not much we can do there. But for you widows out there, I should also note that technically Im divorced.

Liberal U.S. Congressmen Pete Gallego, Joaquin Castro, Lloyd Doggett, and Henry Cuellar have been very silent about the recent Obama administration scandals. For example, the IRS has been targeting Tea Party groups, anti-abortion and other conservative groups by holding up their applications for tax exemptions, harassing them with questions, and leaking their donor lists to political opponents. However, all four liberal south Texas Congressmen (Gallego, Castro, Doggett and Cuellar) have yet to make a comment or utter a peep about the issue. Apparently, they ignore the fact that they have Tea Party members in their districts. These same congressmen have also been silent regarding the Justice Departments subpoena of news media records, and Attorney General Eric Holders apparent misleading testimony to Congress. Whereas some congressmen are demanding answers and accountability from Holder, these four havent said anything. There is also the latest black eye for the IRS where the agency provided Congress a video of the IRS workers practicing their dance moves. Again there is only silence from the Fab Four. This comes after two previous videos which show agency workers in a parody of the Star Trek and Gilligans Island TV shows. There was no comment about those two videos, either. As for the Benghazi, the Fab Four congressmen not said anything about what many now openly describe as a full-blown cover-up related to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. What we have here is the death of four brave Americans, and a subsequent cover-up for the purposes of maintaining political power and these four congressmen say nothing. Based on their silence, we can only conclude that they are either not interested in doing their job for the people they represent, or they are playing politics by being silent. Gallego, Castro, Doggett and Cuellar have been quick to defend the Obama Administration on other issues. They support amnesty

Liberals silence is deafening

for 11 million illegal aliens and they dont believe there is a spending problem that has led America to a $16 trillion dollar deficit. Cuellar went so far as blame the Tea Party for the down grade in the nations credit rating last year. What is apparent is that all four congressmen do not represent conservative constituents in their districts. They support liberal issues, tow the line for the Democratic Party, and defend the Obama Administrations policies, but what about find out the truth on these scandals and bring about a justice resolution? What about upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States? The voters and citizens in their districts should hold them accountable. Either they represent all of the citizens in their district or only certain ones. Either they upholding the Constitution or they are only interested in defending their Party. There are sins of commission, such as Eric Holder lying to Congress about his knowledge of investigating reporters, and sins of omission such as these four congressmen and their lack of interest in cleaning up the scandalous behavior of Obama Administration officials. Gallego, Castro, Doggett, and Cuellar need to stop playing politics and do their job in representing all of their constituents because their silence is deafeningand revealing.

Rick Perry, economic poacher

What you are now hearing across the land is a collective whine. Blue-state Democrats are upset that Texas Gov. Rick Perry dares come and play in their sandboxes, and worse, threatens to poach jobs from their states. The website Politico reports that Perrys attempts to lure jobs to Texas are infuriating to prominent Democrats around the country. Gov. Jerry Brown of California -- a state that is Perrys foremost target -- has dismissed Perrys handiwork in scatological terms. Democrats from another target, Illinois, huff and puff about the temerity of it all. He better not take our businesses away, Sen. Dick Durbin warned. He better not or what, exactly? What recourse does Illinois have, except improving its own business environment? Which would mean Rick Perry is good for Texas ... and for Illinois. Perry is exploiting the genius of our federalist system for all its worth. In his business-recruitment trips, accompanied by trash-talking ads and Texas-sized braggadocio, he is subjecting other states to the fire of competition. In an ad in Crains Chicago Business, Perry offered businesses in the state an escape route to economic freedom ... a route to Texas. This is exactly how the Founders imagined the interplay among the states working. The George Mason University scholar Michael Greve refers to the system as competitive federalism. This federalism relies on exit and mobility -- of capital, and of labor -- as a means of disciplining government, he writes. Competitive federalism is a terrific prescription for a big, diverse country with a highly mobile citizenry and a national government that responds poorly to democratic demands. Rick Perry may be boastful, but he has a lot to boast about. Texas had a 6.4 percent unemployment rate in April. When President Barack Obama recently made Austin, Texas, his first stop on a trip touting job creation, Perry wel-

comed him with an ad noting, accurately, Over the last 10 years, Texas created 33 percent of the net new jobs nationwide. Perrys opponents assume that there must be something unfair or wrong about this. Texas, they scoff, is benefiting from an energy boom. Well, states like California and New York also have oil and gas resources, but refuse to exploit them fully for political reasons. Regardless, Texas job growth ranges much more widely than the energy sector. Texas benefits from low tax rates, a low cost of living, light regulation, checks on abusive lawsuits and its status as a right-to-work state. California has none of the above. Although its unemployment rate has been declining, it is still 9 percent, the fourth-highest in the nation. Poaching jobs sounds pejorative, but it amounts to making it easier for people to do business. The waste hauler Waste Connections Inc. moved from Sacramento, Calif., to a location near Houston. Its CEO told the website The Fiscal Times that it took the company 16 months to design and build a new building in Texas, when the permitting alone would have taken three years in California. If blue-state Democrats want Rick Perry to stop bothering them, they should quit whining and start learning from his example. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

An Editorial View

This is an edited transcription of a commentary heard on The News from the Camphouse on KULM 98.3 FM Brune: Previously we did interviews with our local state legislators and with Ducks Unlimited (DU) representative Kirby Brown. Much of the material we discussed concerned the Texas Water Plan that was up for approval before the state legislature. DU rep Kirby Brown elaborated on the lack of water getting to the rice farmers in the Lower Colorado River Valley, the impact on wildlife, and the impact on industry on the Gulf Coast. Then we talked to desalination consultants about plans for desalting brackish aquifers, as well as, plans for seawater desalination plants on the Texas Gulf Coast. Then we talked to folks in the Brazos Valley that were concerned about groundwater being shipped from Austin and Waller Counties to Fort Bend County. One of the overriding themes echoed by legislators and conservationists was that Texas needed a funding mechanism that would put revenue into coffers financing infrastructure suggested in a state wide plan. Now, its time to go back and find out what was accomplished concerning these matters during the legislative session. But in order to fully appreciate the scope of what is in store there are realistic concepts that must be broached. The sale of Gonzales groundwater to San Antonio was in the Texas Water Plan. Likewise, the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority (GBRA) is contemplating the idea of desalinating seawater and selling the freshwater to its water users. Meanwhile, the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) is planning to implement off channel reservoirs in the Lower Colorado River to catch excess runoff and to use for agriculture. But there is one big question, one big concept that must be or should be broached. If the Texas Water Plan was passed, and there was seed money from the Rainy Day Fund used to implement the water infrastructure. Who gets the money? Does it automatically go to the river authorities? Does it go to the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB)? Does the

ness? Then other questions include whether wholesale electricity should be generated by public works, or whether those quasi-state entities should be sold to the private sector. These are not new questions. In an interview with the former LCRA Communications Director that exact question came forth and his answer related to contracts already signed for wholesale electricity for the next 20 years. His answer did not reflect any favored reasons that public works held over private enterprise. To push my point about public works needing to be privatized, please note President Obamas 2014 budget. Nobody voted for his budget. But whether he did it as a joke or whether he was serious he deigned to privatize the Tennessee Valley River Authority (TVA). In his estimation, the sale would take $25 billion out of the national debt. Other experts said it may take half that much. But there are several items to consider when thinking about this move. One is that studies show the TVA is the nations largest utility and its operating at a loss. It also states that low cost energy doesnt promote conservation. The states benefitting from the subsidized electricity are all red states except Virginia. So naturally, the legislators in those states opposed privatization and losing the low cost electricity for their constituents. Liberal media outlets made a hay-day of laughing at Republican congressmen and senators that objected to the privatization. For once, the outlets said, Republicans had an opportunity to vote against socialism and instead they chose to keep it in place. Meanwhile, we must look at President Roosevelts New Deal era public works that were spawned in Texas. Then we must question whether its reasonable to put more trust in these entities, or whether more trust should be placed in private enterprise. At a time that our governor is circumventing the U.S. asking for private businesses to relocate in Texas why are our legislators letting Texas water infrastructure be built and managed by public works? Or is socialism that easy to accept even in Texas? The right move now is to ask state legislators these same questions.

Letter wasnt meant to sound racist

Dear Editor, As I sat on my porch Friday and ran through my mind what I wrote in my last Letter to the Editor I realized it was, and did, sound racist. It wasnt meant to be. I meant to say that many folks have fallen into poverty at some point. I have since 1995, and its not pretty, its hard as hell. Poverty begets depression, depression begets addictions, bad health, malnourishment. I was a dental assistant,

yet lost all my teeth due to poverty and the punishment it brings on us all. Im sorry, but I feel you should be standing tall, by letting it show so all the world can see your pride in accomplishing where you are today. Seize the moment! Take it and run with it. Write your President of your wishes. Now is the time. Laura Maiorka Gonzales

TWDB get the money and distribute it to the various entities responsible for building said infrastructure? How do these funds get divvied out? Now, consider this. Two sessions ago, our state senator was the youngest senator to be put on the Sunset Commission. At the time, he carried a bill putting river authorities under the same review process as state agencies. River authorities were subject to audit but being classified as quasi-state agencies they werent subject to sunset review. The bill never passed the Senate Natural Resource Committee. If that is still the case has the current state legislature promised funds to quasi-state agencies with limited review processes or oversight? Also look at the history of the river authorities. For starters its a lie to say that they were necessary to bring electricity to rural Texas. The truth is there were private entities bidding for that business but who couldnt compete with the public works set up by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. They did provide needed flood control but there is also the argument that private enterprise could have done the same had the federal government aided the private sector rather than financing the aforementioned public works. Another plain truth is that the river authorities, at any given time, have stayed embattled or at odds with the constituents along the rivers. It is safe to say that if the legislature intends to send funds to the river authorities theres red flags going up in the eyes and minds of many Texans along the rivers. There are other basic questions. Why should the GBRA build a seawater desalination plant on the Texas Gulf Coast and benefit from water sales? Are there no private Texas companies capable of bidding for that busi-

What happened to the country I fought for?

I am sickened. I am astounded. I am ashamed. After the revelations from the latest traitor on the news today I cant help but shake my head and wonder what happened. What happened to us as a nation? Where has loyalty, honor and patriotism gone? After I watched in disgust this self-righteous leaker on the news, I just felt sick to my stomach. I talked to several friends about it and to my horror even one of them saw the guy as a hero. Are you kidding me? The guy on TV was spouting how the public should decide about the secrets and the programs that are operating. He continues to try to justify his actions as some great deed to let the people decide. Does he not get the fact that with his very actions he has taken that choice away from the people he purports to represent? The people now have no say in the program. He has decided that for all of us. He has decided that he alone knows better. He is not a whistle-blower. The NSA

program is not illegal. It is not being done without knowledge of the legislature or the courts. He seems to forget the fact that the elected representatives are the ones that approved this program almost a decade ago, the people DID decide to allow it. The elected officials ARE our voice, not this guy. He swore an oath. He was trusted to protect and defend. He has betrayed his oath. I also listened to the fans of Pvt. Manning of the Wiki leaks fame. He too is sim-

ply a traitor. There is no other way to see it. We as citizens of a civilized society dont get to pick and choose which law or which policy we decide to follow. We all have a responsibility to follow the laws, oaths, duties and accepted public policies of our government. This is such a slippery slope. Suppose you decide that vigilantism is the best policy. Can you simply decide not the follow the accepted laws? How about deciding you dont agree with a court ruling so you simply decide to disregard it. Anarchy follows closely behind this logic. Lets take Pvt Mannings escapade. He didnt even know what he released, just that it was classified and he released tens of thousands of documents. That again is not a whistle-blower. That is not a hero. That is the action of a misguided, self-important, person making a very conscious decision that he knew he was not to do. He knew what he was doing was wrong, illegal, and against everything the very

organization he worked for was sworn to do. Our NSA leaker is no different. What is common in both of these events? These two individuals took it upon themselves to decide against all regulations and duties to take actions that they not only had know right to do, but had no concern for the damage they would do and the personnel they put at risk. They may say it was for the better good. That is simply a way they are trying to justify their actions. As an American, as a retired soldier, as someone that takes ethics and trust and the oath to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, I see very clearly that the enemy we need to defend ourselves from are these people and others like them. They are not worth a second thought. They are not to be looked up to or given any modicum of understanding. They are traitors, enemies, scum plain and simple.

Board OKs new legal counsel

The search for new representation is apparently over for the Gonzales County Underground Water Conservation District (GCUWCD). During a regular meeting of its board of directors Tuesday night, the District agreed to hire Gregory Ellis as its new legal counsel. Last month, GCUWCD board president Bruce Tieken appointed Barry Miller and Bruce Patteson as the committee to interview the attorneys that had responded to the Districts request for qualifications. The one that I thought stood out more than anybody was Mr. Ellis, said Patteson. Hes not afraid to roll up his sleeves and fight. There were some other fine water district attorneys (we considered), but I believe that well be better served by hiring Mr. Ellis, said Miller before making a motion to do so. It passed unanimously. Ellis, who lives in League City, has an extensive water background. He has been the general counsel for the Texas Water Foundation since 2007. He is also a member of the Texas Alliance of Groundwater Districts, serving as executive director from 2006-2010. Ellis is also a member of the State Bar of Texas in both the Environmental Law and Natural Resources Law sections, and is the past director of the Texas Water Conservation Association. In a related agenda item, the District agreed to hold off on finalizing its revisions to the District Management Plan until their new counsel gets up to speed. Lets bring our new attorney on board, give him the information, let him review it and then well finish it up in workshop, said Tieken. The board also agreed for pay for the GMA 13 Task O model calibration. The cost of the project, which will be shared with the Plum Creek Conservation District, was adjusted to $3,000 from $7,500. During his General Managers Report, Greg Sengelmann told the board that he attended the Texas Water Development Boards (TWDB) Brackish Water Study meeting in Austin on May 6. The TDWB will be conducting a study to delineate the brackish water resources in parts of Ground Management Area (GMA) 13 and GMA 12, which includes Gonzales and surrounding counties. The study will identify the aerial extent and volumes of the 1,000 to 10,000 parts per million (ppm). This will be a good study for us because theyre going to do the thickness of these aquifers, Sengelmann said. The study will include the Wilcox, Carrizo, Queen City, Sparta and Yegua aquifers. In other business, the board: Approved resolutions nominating Greg Sengelmann and Tim Andruss to serve as Water District representatives for the Region L Water Planning Group. Agreed to renew the irrigation well Drilling & Production Permit filed by Dwight Muelker. The well is located on Highway 97, one mile south of Bebe, and produces 142 acre feet annually from the Queen City Aquifer.

A new staff position will soon be added to the countys roster as a result of Mondays regular meeting of The Gonzales County Commissioners Court. The countys Emergency Management Coordinator Jimmy Harless asked the court to consider hiring a full-time clerk for his office to help handle with the OSSF (on-site sewage

GEDC: New restaurant planned

Continued from page A1

St. (which currently has an address marker of 401 St. George St., the Joseph-Stahl Building). The site was last used as the Puro Guadalajara Mexican food restraurant. The proposal seeks a GEDC loan of up to $400,000, a fourth of that forgivable, to renovate the property to include a 7,000-square-foot first-floor Italian restaurant and a second-floor bed and breakfast with 12-15 apartments. After a number of visits to Gonzales, and visiting with some of the locals, we believe that the downtown area had a lot to offer, Pabians proposal reads. We feel that offering housing downtown will support businesses in the community, as well as offer a different experience than your traditional hotel. We believe in the growth of the City of Gonzales, and feel strongly that an upscale, reasonably priced, Italian restaurant in the square will be a great addition. The proposal indicates the company plans to purchase the property this month and begin development immediately, with an opening expected in October. The board accepted the grant application and may begin consideration during its June 24 meeting. The board also approved two measures Tuesday designed to aid businesses in improving the downtown Gonzales area. Directors released $50,000 in GEDC funding for the Main Street Facade Grant program, and enthusiastically welcomed and matched a donation from a Texas A&M professor to help local businesses make improvements to meet building codes. Gonzales Main Street Coordinator Barbara Friedrich said the facade program has enabled several downtown merchants to

make positive improvements to building fronts, and the Main Street Board of Directors recently approved a grant for renovations to the Bealls Building facade. We want to encourage people to have their facades in keeping with the historic nature of downtown, Director Clint Hille said. We want to move forward with that historical aesthetic. Executive Director Carolyn Baros noted that some facade-grant proposals have been rejected because they did not meet that criteria. Baros also introduced a proposal from Dr. Elise Bright of Texas A&M University to create a grant fund to aid some local businesses in making improvements to bring their properties up to building code. Bright is the professor whose students recently spent several months studying Gonzales to help the city create its longterm development plan. Baros said the professor is currently in Europe and plans to return in August to meet with the board and develop the program. Directors accepted her $3,000 donation and voted to match it to let the fund begin growing. I think this is consistent with our vision of redeveloping downtown ... this will fit in nicely, said director James Ryan. In other action Tuesday, the board: Received a performance agreement from Schmidt & Sons related to its GEDC funding; Received an annual report from another GEDC beneficiary, Wise Products, on its first year in business in Gonzales; Accepted engineering proposals from four companies to be considered at its meeting later this month; Reviewed the draft GEDC budget, sales-tax income and established budget workshop dates.

damage, the release read. Officer Tunis followed a trail of debris and was approached by the driver of the Lincoln. The driver of the Lincoln told the officer he was heading east on St. Michael Street when a car came up behind him and pulled up next to him at an intersection as he slowed down. Subjects in the car shot at him. The driver told Officer Tunis he ducked down inside the car and struck some vehicles in the process, including the suspect vehicle. He was sure he struck the suspect vehicle in the rear as it turned down another street, read the release. The suspect vehicle was described as a dark-colored Lincoln or Cadillac with a rear tire carrier. Evidence was collected at the scene and

information provided by witnesses is being followed up with by investigators. We are still looking for the suspect vehicle which could have damage to the rear of the car, the release read. There has been speculation that the Wednesday shooting was a retaliation for the one that took place on Monday, but Crow told The Cannon he could not offer any confirmation. No there is no evidence of that at this time, he said. We have been hearing the same, but we have not substantiated that. We do not have a suspect that I could name; however, we have persons of interest but I am not at liberty to discuss that part of our investigation. If anyone has information regarding these cases, contact Captain Gayle Autry or Captain Allen Taylor at 830-672-8686.

NIXON: Lowers speed limits

Continued from page A1

hicular speed will be for US 87 and will be 55 mph at the city limits, then 50 mph at the county line, and finally 40 mph coming into town. City officials state that the reduction in the speed limits is good and important for maintaining vehicle safety and traffic control, as the city continues to experience increased traffic flow and the safety issues that come with it. Implementation of the slower speed limits will be as soon as the official speed limit signs are installed at the designated locations, which city officials say will be soon. Also at the meeting, the council discussed at length a request by the Passion for Paws organization regarding plans for a no-kill animal shelter to possibly be built on city property. City Attorney Eddie Escobar and animal control officials discussed with Passion for Paws representatives the many legal issues of following state and federal guidelines, code compliance, shelter location, insurance and liability, among others. The council reviewed possible locations of the shelter and encouraged and im-

plored the shelter representatives to come up with specific engineering plans that would detail issues of sanitation, sewage, water, security, electricity, etc The council reiterated the importance and necessity of the no-kill shelter being in compliance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, so that the city will not face fines or other punitive action from the state for non-compliance. Its not anything we want to stall. We want to get this going, we definitely do, said Councilman Hector Dominguez to the representatives. We just got to make sure that its done right, because we definitely dont want fines to come back to the City of Nixon. In other matters, the council: Approved a request to construct a fire escape ladder on a building at 218 N. Nixon Avenue. Approved a request to build a sidewalk from the intersection of E. Second Street and N. Texas to US 87. Elected Councilman Hector Dominguez to serve as mayor pro-tem. Appointed former council member George Pena to the citys Planning and Zoning Committee.

70s, 80s, 90s and beyond. These individuals have raised loving families, built successful businesses, served our country, and given back to their communities. Despite age and the ailments that come with it, these Texans continue to demonstrate compassion, thoughtfulness, resourcefulness and an entrepreneurial spirit. I was proud to receive the honor because I really think of this place as my second home, said Kapavik, who lives at The Heights of Gonzales. Everybody is real nice to me and the people here are like my second family. Kapavik, a Gonzales native, has been living at the facility for the better part of the last three years. She had been married to her husband, Ernest Kapavik, since June of 1950. Her husband passed away six years ago and Kapavik chose to move into The Heights permanently after rehabbing there following hip surgery. I decided to stay because I feel safe here and everybody is so nice, she said. All of my children are married and they all have jobs that keep them very busy. This way I can get the care that I need. A mother of ten children, Kapavik also has 23 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren with another on the way. She is a longtime member of St. James Catholic Church, where she used to call the Bingo games. I attend everything that involves my family, Kapavik said. My kids take turns to make sure that I always go to church. They all come to see me here. Kapavik said that despite her limited physical condition, she still finds way to remain active. Theres a great many things I can still do, but I get tired after many hours, she

explained. Thats why I think its better that I stay here. Im going to keep going as long as I can. Kapaviks second eldest child, Josie Tomas, said her mother has not missed a beat since she decided to take up permanent residence at The Heights. Mom doesnt miss anything that the family does, said Tomas. Shes there to support us in everything from the kids birthdays to any baptisms or confirmations.

Step up to the plate with neat gift ideas for Dad

With Fathers Day right around the corner, you can go back to the old standby tie and golf tees package or you can step up to something that will come in handy every time your dad (or anyone else) fires up the grill. The grilling experts at Broil King have some suggestions for every type of grill master, so take a look at these: The Neat Freak -- For the dad that likes to keep the grill spotless before and after a meal, a heavy duty grid brush is a must. Recommended is one with a grime guard. Broil King says it will keep the grill clean as well as your grill master. Pair

it with a biodegradable grill cleaner and let dad worry about cooking, not cleaning. The Family Man -Trying to balance adult meals with kid-friendly choices can be tricky, but burger presses and grill baskets make it easy to accommodate everyone. Sliders are the perfect size for little hands, and a basket that can grill at least six at time will help keep hungry mouths fed. A stuffed burger press is perfect for creating unique flavour combinations for the adults. Try Greek burgers stuffed with feta cheese, roasted red pepper, and spinach. The Enthusiast -- If he insists on being called

Tex, Tiny, Tubby, or just dad when hes tending the barbecue for hours on end, consider a pair of heavy stainless steel pork claws. Broil Kings experts claim they make shredding pork a walk in the park. The Entertainer -- Items designed for both cooking prep and presentation are great gifts for an outdoor entertainer. A jalapeno pepper rack adds grill appeal to this popular appetizer and a pizza stone helps backyard chefs prepare and serve an authentic pizza pie.

Saturday, June 15 Meal Served - 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm BBQ Chicken & Pork Ribs, Potato Salad & Beans DJ Carlos w/CK Twister performing 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Anniversary Celebration

Sandis Country Fried News

Sandi Gandre
Young, Ann Bond, Marguerite Williams, the family of Ryan Allen; the family of Joe Vega, the family of the disasters of the Boston Marathon, the West, TX disasters; and the tragic tornado in Oklahoma, and our military and families What is that saying, You can take the girl out of the country but you cant take the country out of the girl-----Erin Allen came home to go to the wedding of her pretty red-headed first cousin Robin in Victoria. She found a snake out on Paw Paw Allens deck. Then she found a grubbing hoe to kill the snake. It turned out to be a copperhead. Then she chopped the snake into two pieces, put it into a jar and took it back to Austin with her. Somehow it just struck me like something her pretty Nana Evelyn Allen would have done. The Wesleyan Circle had their annual fest at the

Clear Springs Cat Fish Eatery. I think almost half the bunch was from Belmont. Shirley and Dick Goss, Paw Paw (Paul) Allen Jr., Sean and Kathleen Allen. Then there was Emily Neuse and Cheryl and Bill Meadows from Gonzales. Happy Birthday Aunt Georgie Gandre. I dont know where Aunt Georgie was, but she did not grace them with her presence. We had gotten so far behind schedule and I had dreamed of pan cakes for so long, that Augie treated me to strawberry jelly roll pan cakes with four slices of bacon from I Hops. It was so very good. Pepe, the Kitten, has been a handful, to say the least. Pepe is like an octopus out of the water. He moves so fast that no one can keep up with him. He is not picky with his food. He will eat almost anything that I do. Samson has done a lot of hissing and spitting at Pepe. I hope that they get used to each other soon. So each day gets a little better for all of us. Have a great week and God Bless.

On this day in 1898, Israel S. Campbell died in La Marque. Campbell was born in Kentucky in 1815 and came to Texas as a missionary in 1866. In 1867 he reorganized the African Baptist Church (now the Avenue L Baptist Church) in Galveston, the first completely independent black Baptist congregation in Texas after emancipation. In 1868 Campbell and John Henry Yates helped organize the Regular Missionary Lincoln Baptist Association, the first association of black Baptists in Texas. Campbell also wrote the constitution for the Baptist State Missionary Convention in 1872. By the time of his retirement, in 1891, he was popularly known as the father of black Baptists in Texas.

The architect has not been released to do the design ... we can bring more detail in as part of a budget workshop, perhaps. Both Smith-Wright and Hendershot opined that it would be helpful to have more specifics in terms of costs in order to be able to pitch the bond issue to voters. Its kind of like the chicken and the egg, you really want your numbers first, Hendershot quipped. I would like to be able to say, for a million dollars, this is what youll get, Smith-Wright said. Board president Glenn Menking applauded the administration for its conservative approach to the issue. Over the last month, we have scaled this back significantly to get what we need, Menking said, ... so we dont have an impact on our budget and our taxpayers.

The occupants of the house had already vacated the premises, and at least two were injured with severe burns. The fire was essentially out by the time authorities arrived, so they primarily spent their time ventilating smoke from the house. The scene was cleared at 1:42 p.m. and the case is still under investigation.

board that district staff had refined some of the numbers on the proposal, which initially bore a $21.9 million earmark, and that as a result those numbers have decreased. Strozier said staff had cut cost estimates by about $500,000 on renovations at Gonzales High School and another halfmillion on anticipated costs in purchasing and converting the old H-EB property into an earlychildhood center. She said the resulting savings would lead to an eventual tax-rate impact of about 16 cents per $100 valuation, down slightly from estimates presented at a special board meeting in May. Trustees Josie SmithWright and Ross Hendershot III questioned when the board will have something more specific to review, and deputy superintendent Larry Wehde responded that the

can give the district more detailed control over what is being spent. When you actually go out for bids, thats when you get the costs, she said. The board discussed the possibility of holding one or more town-hall meetings to build support for the bond issue once trustees approve a final proposal, either during their regular August meeting or during a special called meeting on or before Aug. 26. In other action Monday, the board approved a hike of 10 cents for school lunches, passing along anticipated delivery and food rate hikes in accordance with a worksheet supplied by the Texas Dept. of Agriculture. Trustees also ratified a new two-year depository agreement with Sage Capital Bank, with Menking and Hendershot abstaining from the vote. Also approved was the purchase of three new vehicles: a new SUV-style vehicle for small-group transportation to and from UIL events as well as two heavy-duty pickup trucks for use by Career and Technology Education. Also ratified was an amended oil and gas lease agreement with EOG Resources.

Inspiring program and information pertaining to 2nd amendment rights at the June 5 meeting of the Republican Women of Yoakum by John Harrington, owner of Shield Tactical Company. John spoke of the dire necessity to stand up and speak out to protect the 2nd amendment, because without gun rights, all other rights and protections are worthless. Citizens who do not speak out and resist tyranny from an out of control government will become fearful and enslaved. The RWOY will not have a meeting on July 3rd due to the July 4th holiday. We will have an exceptional speaker at the August meeting. Pictured are Brenda Cash, President of RWOY, Michael Koerner, area representative for Senator Cruz, John Harrington, and Helen Appelt, 1st VP program chair.

GONZALES Gonzales High School head softball coach Holli Miller has elected to relinquish her coaching duties for the Lady Apaches. Miller said she would like a little more time to spend with family and friends. It was a personal decision, she said. Im newly married and next to my faith, my family is my priority. Im ready to be able to go visit my brothers and see my family whenever Id like to and to devote my time to my marriage. Miller will remain employed with GISD to continue in her teaching duties at the Gonzales Junior High. She will not coach junior high athletics as she previously had done in her first two years with the district. Teaching is my passion and that is what I really want to get better at doing, she said. Miller has coached the Lady Apaches softball team since the 2012 season, where she was an assistant under then-head coach Holly Long and was named the head coach shortly after Longs departure. The Lady Apaches went 19-9-1 in 2013 and were 4-6 in District 26-3A, finishing in fourth place and close to a playoff spot. Miller said being a head coach was a re-

warding but challenging job. Ive learned so much from being a head coach, she said. I truly learned what it means when people say it takes a village to raise a child. MILLER, Page B2

The University Interscholastic Leagues Legislative Council on Tuesday, passed three measures recommended by the UIL Medical Advisory Committee related to student health and safety. The UIL will formulate into a formal policy the existing actions across the state as they relate to limiting contact in football practice. Full-contact practice will be limited to 90 minutes per athlete per week during the regular and post season. For the purposes of the rule, full contact is defined as football drills or live-game simulations where live action occurs. Live action is contact at game speed where players execute full tackles at a competitive pace, taking players to the ground. The Legislative Council voted to require cheerleading participants to comply with Chapter 38 subchapter D of the Texas Education Code as it pertains to prevention, treatment and oversight of concussions. Coaches and sponsors for cheerleading will be required to undergo specific training about safety guidelines for cheer, as well as other programs, that have the goal of minimizing the risks associated with the activity. In other action, the League will require a new acknowledgement form with information and resources related to sudden cardiac arrest. The sudden cardiac arrest awareness form will require a signature from a parent or guardian of each studentathlete prior to participation in a UIL event. The Commissioner of Education must approved amendments passed by the UIL Legislative Council before they may take effect. If approved by the Commissioner of Education, these rules will take effect on Aug. 1. Baseball players named to All-State team Flatonia sophomore Mar-

cus Mica was selected as Third Team First Base and senior Josh Velasquez was chosen as Third Team Outfielder to the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Associations All-State 1A team.

Its the same way with coaching. You have to rely on other people to help you get the job done. My assistants did a good job helping me and I greatly appreciate everything that they did. The work ethic and personalities of her players made her job a pleasant one. To be around such a great group of young women was more than what I could have asked for, Miller said. These kids came to practice every single day, not only wanting to work hard but they had the desire

to want to win. I can honestly say I probably have never laughed so much around a group of kids. I will miss these kids a lot but I know that they will all be very successful in no matter what they choose to do. Miller said she does not know if she will return to coaching in the future, but only time will tell. I am a live life one day at a time kind of person, she said. If it is in the plans for me to come back to it then I will. Right now my focus is my husband and my family.

Country music star Kevin Fowler points to a Texas State Park Guide at Guadalupe River State Park. Fowler has teamed up with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality on a new statewide public service campaign. (Photo by Chase A. Fountain/TPWD) Cannon News Services AUSTIN In a shared announcement today, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) unveiled a statewide public service campaign to promote outdoor recreation and encourage personal responsibility in protecting our states natural resources. Country music star Kevin Fowler donated his talents for radio and TV spots, including writing and performing the campaigns jingle, Take Care of Texas, which will be broadcast on Texas radio and TV stations throughout the summer. Kevins jingle is not only a catchy song, but its also a very noteworthy message, says TCEQ Executive Director Zak Covar. Through this statewide campaign, we hope that everyone who enjoys the abundant outdoor recreation opportunities here will do their part to conserve and protect those natural resources. With the punishing drought our state has suffered in recent years, most people know how important it is to conserve water, and public education efforts like Take Care of Texas are absolutely vital to help get the job done, said Carter Smith, TPWD executive director. In poll after poll, Texans have consistently ranked water resources near the very top of public priorities. Its important for people in cities, and its important for fish and wildlife, state parks and natural habitatseverything is connected, and we all have a role to play. Take Care of Texas provides quick and easy practical guidance for people to do what they already know is right. The PSA, as well as a video about the making of it, is available on the website. The website offers Texans easy ways to conserve water and energy, and includes an online calculator to estimate how much household water, energy, and money they can save by taking these conservation measures in their own home and garden. Everyone who takes an online pledge to help keep Texas clean will receive a free Texas State Park Guide in appreciation for their efforts.

Anthology helps legendary Allan achieve Satisfaction

SAN MARCOS After all these years, Aaron Allan can finally be said to have achieved a measure of satisfaction. The Central Texas songwriting and radio legend has recently released Satisfaction, a compilation of 47 of his best songs over more than 80 years of living, most of it spent writing and recording. The doubleCD anthology of some of Allans best-loved tunes contains not only the songs, but also narratives from Allan about the tunes and his life in music. Most of these are new recordings, Allan said during a recent Gonzales stop to promote the anthology. Its got 47 songs, a booklet, some information about my career. Allan is not a prepossessing man. Given his druthers, hed be parked on a chair in his element at the Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, writing and singing songs. But he understands that promotion is part of the business. Allan has written over 900 songs with 27 of them being recorded by the likes of the Osborne Brothers, Charlie Walker, Stony Edwards and Willie Nelson, doing Aarons Truth Number One in 1970. He has been inducted into the Country Music Association of Texas Hall of Fame and he has been nominated for the D.J. Hall of Fame in Nashville. He has also received a Humbie from the outstanding Humble Time radio syndication. Over 52 years in the music business, he has spent many of his efforts in the country music radio industry, and humbly claims to have helped train a young Egon Barthels of Gonzales KCTI 1450AM. Hes the only DJ I ever saw who could put a disc on the turntable and set the needle on the exact song he wanted without ever looking at the turntable, Barthels said. He started on KITE in San Antonio, Texas in 1948, KBOP in Pleasanton and on to the well known WOAI in San Antonio. When Aaron left KBOP Willie Nelson took his place in 1954. He continued in Fort Worth (working with Lawton Williams), Kansas, Nashville and various other stations. He often is seen at Willies 4th of July Picnic as master of ceremonies. Allan sais his main influences were a strange combination: Burl Ives and Bob Dylan. Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver were also great influences on his song writing. Well aware of the path that country music has taken especially from Nashville, Aaron said he tends to promote true country music. We see a lot of the younger generation who have followed in the footsteps of the legendary country artists, that gives me hope for the future of country music and radio, he said. Im a low-tech man, he told one interviewer. I have a table. I have a pen. I have paper and a guitar. The double-CD set is available in a number of locations throughout Central Texas, including Victory Cleaners and the Luling Chamber of Commerce in Luling. A July 26 release party is planned at the Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos.

Aaron Allans songs have been recorded by dozens of marquee artists

Texas Unlimited Band to bring country-rock flavor to Main St.

Cannon News Services

The Texas Unlimited Band (aka TUB) was formed in the early 1980s in the small town of Dime Box. Texas Unlimited started out playing weddings, private parties and the local dance hall circuit. They soon developed a significant following and were requested at larger venues, fairs and festivals. Currently TUB is one of the most requested country and variety bands in Texas and has showcased their sound across the south west United States, making appearances on TV and radio talk shows. The band, now based in Giddings, will be heading up the main stage entertainment at the Gonzales Main Street Summer Concert Series from 7-10 p.m. Friday, June 21. Texas Unlimited has shared the stage with numerous major stars including: George Strait, NYNSYNC, Garth Brooks, Brooks and Dunn, Chris Ladoux, John Michael

Montgomery, BlackHawk, George Jones, Restless Heart, Lori Morgan, Gary Allen, Tim Magraw, Diamond Rio, Steve Wariner, Clay Walker, Shenandoah, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Pat Green, among many others. TUBs original music has gained great acclaim and is receiving air play on Texas and Oklahoma radio stations. The 2013 series runs weekly through Friday, June 28 and Thursday, July 4. Another familiar name to Tejano fans, Shelly Lares, will bring her Tejano Revival act to the stage June 28 from 7-10 p.m. The series wraps up with the Star-Spangled Spectacular July 4, and two San Antonio-based acts will provide the tunes. The Meyer Anderson Band heads up the afternoon entertainment from 2:30-6 p.m., with the Toman Brothers Band playing from 6:30-11 p.m The fireworks show is scheduled for 10 p.m. this year. The Gonzales Main Street

vision is that the central business district will be an outstanding example of historic preservation, the center of commerce and a tourist destination. Visit for information on the main street program and more on the 2013 Concert Series, including sponsorship opportunities, volunteer forms and vendor applications.

Camp Shakespeare performances coming to the Crystal

Cannon News Services

The Texas Unlimited Band

Sumer is icumin in Lhude sing cuccu! Thus begins this 12th century English song, inviting the new season and its sounds. At Winedale, near Round Top, it is one of the traditional theme songs of young Shakespeareans embracing the challenge of plays written over 400 years ago, a musical prologue to the intense two-week work and play experience called

Camp Shakespeare. One might wonder what inspires kids who just finished another school year, ending with finals and yearning for some rest, to spend a month of preparation and part of their summer time studying something that most folks think is opaque? They could be at the beach. What draws them to Fayette County under the hot Texas sun, into an old cedar barn at Winedale? University of Texas

Emeritus Jim (Doc) Ayres, Director of Camp Shakespeare, has a simple answer for that: come to the country and find out. Camp Shakespeare is a two-week residential experience in play and performance available to kids 1116 from anywhere through an application process. Experience in acting or with Shakespeare is not necessary. Only 28 places are available each year, with 14 students in each session. What happens at Camp? Well, here is one parents

analysis sent to Doc: Their accomplishment [at Camp] is the more remarkable when we consider that none of these students are theater or drama students but only kids interested in working together to explore a play through performance. In the process, their play becomes a vehicle for their exploration of language, of social encounter and problem-solving, for developing self-confidence and self-esteem, verbal and written expression, and,

through Shakespeare, for gaining insight into the human condition. Campsite for the program is Briarfield B & B, near Round Top. Daily sessions are held at theater barn at The University of Texas Winedale Historical Center. Fourteen campers selected for first session this 11th season arrived on June 9th to begin their study of Loves Labors Lost, Shakespeares lively comedy of wit and wooing, often called a feast of words. Indeed, it is a celebration of the new words and sounds of the English language and everyone in the play has a great deal of fun showing off his or her verbal skills.

Public performances of the play are scheduled for Thursday, June 20, 3 p.m., at the Crystal Theater in Gonzales; for Friday, June 21, 7 p.m., at the new Henkel Hall on Round Tops Henkel Square; and for Saturday, June 22, 1 p.m., at the Theater Barn at Winedale. Admission is $5; students are admitted free. Donations to the program are always welcome. The second session campers will boldly take on Hamlet. David Williams of Austin will play the Prince.

Martin was Dino Crocetti. Issur Danielovitch (wisely) changed his name to Kirk Douglas, and Archibald Leach decided he preferred to become famous as Cary Grant. It was American industrialist Henry Ford who made the following sage observation: Whether you think that you can, or that you cant, you are usually right. It took Leonardo da Vinci four years to complete his iconic painting the Mona Lisa. If youre planning a trip to the United Kingdom this summer, you might want to add a side trip to Llanfair in Wales. The towns Welsh name is llanfair-pwllgwyn gyllgogerychwyrndrobwll llantsiliogogogoch, which means, roughly, Saint Marys Church in a hollow of white hazel, close to a whirlpool and Saint Tysilos Church and near a red cave. The sign at the railway station that has the towns name is 20 feet long. The next time youre aviating in Alaska, keep in mind that in that state its illegal to view a moose from the window of any flying vehicle. Whats in a name? Well, a great deal, it would seem -- at least according to those trying to make it big. Joan Crawford was born Lucille La Sueur, Roy Rogers was Leonard Slye, and Dean Before 1948 on the island of Bermuda, cars were forbidden. You might be surprised to learn that the cowboy hat was not as widespread in the Old West as might be assumed from watching old movies. The most popular headwear on the frontier was the bowler hat. The bowler had the advantage of stability; it wouldnt blow off in high winds. It was worn by Bat Masterson, Billy the Kid, Black Bart and Butch Cassidy. *** Thought for the Day: The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. -Oscar Wilde (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
