2003. It would be great if we could add another title to our tradition. That is our goal right now, Shiner

head coach Steven Cerny said at practice on Monday. We do not want to be satisfied just by making it to state and saying good enough. We want to win it. This group has worked hard all year and I expect them to do the same this week. Cerny described the season as a miracle. We were not picked to do SHINER, Page A9

Inside This Week:

At one point Gonzales firefighters used a City of Gonzales electric department bucket truck in an attempt to get water down on the fire, with Gary Schroeder going aloft to attack the blaze. A bucket truck from the Seguin Fire Department (right) came on-scene and helped get the fire under control intially around 3:30 p.m.

Firefighters from several agencies spent more than six hours battling a stubborn fire Sunday which consumed one of Gonzales historic homes. The initial call came around 10:30 a.m. on a fire which apparently started in the attic area of the home at 605 St. Peter St. belonging to Roger and Dot Eberle. The house was built in 1907 by ranchers Mike and Dora Koch and was one of the citys showcase bungalow style homes of the pe-

Neoma Georgia Colwell, 1929-2013 Neoma Georgia Colwell, 84, of Harwood, passed away Sunday, December 15, 2013. She was born February 26, 1929 to Lonnie W. and Georgia Savannah Latham Edwards at her family home in Gonzales County. She attended school in Harwood and would teach her younger sister Nell the alphabet and multiplication tables at night to prepare her for when she became of age to attend school. Neoma was a member of Harwood Baptist Church, the Womens Missionary Union, the Gonzales Order of the Eastern Star Chapter 403, the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Growing up in her family required dedication to long hours of hard work, even though she was a daddys girl and he was very protective of her, no one could evade the work in the fields. She went to work in San Antonio in the cafeteria of the Terrell Wells Jr. High School. She worked in Luling at the Wilson Model Market as a store clerk and then as a clerk at the Harwood Store before going to work potting plants at the Cactus Corral for nearly twenty years. Neoma was a disciplinarian with her children; each carried their own weight and towed the line. She was always very clear with her opinion of a matter; just the same her opinions were always constructive and mindful of a higher purpose. She was an excellent cook and baker; however she did enjoy going out to eat on occasion. She was popularly known to bake an Italian Crme cake that was unrivaled for its magnificence in taste. The disciplinarian mentioned earlier, stopped altogether when it came to her grandchildren. She loved taking them in her home, she would cook with them and dote on them and protect them from parental correction, which in her eyes was unnecessary as they were all perfect little angels, especially her eldest granddaughter Tammy. She is survived by her

Harold Otto Pape, 1932-2013 Harold Otto Pape, 80, passed away Tuesday, December 10, 2013. He came into this life on the same

PAPE

land that he left this earth, on his familys home place in Monthalia. Harold was born December 22, 1932 to Robert E. and Irma Afflerbach Pape. He attended school in Monthalia before graduating from Gonzales High School. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Army where he was a radar operator in Greenland during the war. Harold went on to study engineering in Port Arthur College before coming home to manage the family farm and begin a 50 year career with Pape Pecan in Seguin. He was a life member of the Monthalia Methodist Church, a member of the Guadalupe County Masonic Lodge #109 A.F. & A.M. He had been a member of the Farm Bureau since 1966, he was president of the Gonzales County Farm Bureau in 1968 and he received the Outstanding Citizen Award from the Gonzales Independent School District for the 1971-72 school year. He was a charter member of the Gonzales County Young Farmers Association in which he was honored as the 1966 Star Young Farmer, and in 1971-72 he was bestowed Associate Member Award for the Gonzales County Young Farmers and had been the recipient of Honorary Member recognition. He was a lifetime member of the Texas Pecan Growers Association and had served on its board of directors from 1991-1993, he contributed much more to TPGA than just a term of official service. Harold coordinated equipment demonstrations at the annual TPGA conference for many years and was a frequent speaker on educational programs. He was an essential source of information and advice for anything related to Texas pecan, said Cindy Wise of the TPGA. He was a lifetime member of the Western Pecan Growers Association and he was awarded a citation for 43 years of service to this association. He was a member of the governing board of the Guadalupe County Pecan Growers Association and Harold had been recognized for 50 years of service to the Texas pecan industry by Governor Rick Perry in 2013. Dr. George Ray McEachern, Professor of Horticulture at Texas A&M University in College Station documented several facts regarding Harold Otto Pape, personally noting that Harold Pape, knew more pecan growers, scientists, and orchards than any man in the world, he had traveled to more pecan orchards and helped pecan growers evaluate their needs more than

any man in the world, he was a brilliant man with an unmatched memory and was able to recall details of past production, personalities, history, problems and good times better than any man in the industry, he has understood and marketed pecan chemicals, fertilizers and equipment as well as any college professor or orchard manager and always for the good of the grower, just to name but a few of the accolades recorded. To say that Harold Pape played an enormous role in the success of pecan growers across Texas and the western states would be a huge understatement, but understated is exactly the way he wanted things, Harold was a humble man whose personal reward was merely to see others in this field succeed, he sought no reward, accolades or recognition, for he knew that He who humbles himself, shall be exalted, Luke 14:11. Most certainly this humble man, who on this earthen soil has so toiled for the benefit of many, has been exalted by his peers and his Lords face is shining upon him. Harold Pape, having grown up in Monthalia in the midst of the depression, with no electricity in his home in the early days, recognized the value of lifes simple pleasures, hunting, fishing, the hush of the outdoors at dawn and the awakening of life as morning broke. He loved to play baseball and football and he remained a sports enthusiast. He had a tremendous love of history and loved to travel our great nation and revel in its history and majesty. He imparted many of his gifts to his son Jason and they shared many wonderful moments traveling by train across the country. Harold was an encouraging father who shared his love of life and fairness to others with his son. He was an honorable man whose word was gold and a handshake was more binding

than a contract. He loved his daughter-in-law and enjoyed baiting a rivalry of sorts as they shared the love of watching football while certainly not always cheering for the same team. Just the same, there was always love. Harold is survived by his loving son and daughterin-law, Jason and Jennifer Pape of Monthalia. He was preceded in death by his parents. Funeral services for Harold Otto Pape were held at 2 p.m. Friday, December 13, 2013 in the Monthalia Methodist Church with Pastor Paul Smith officiating. Interment followed in the Monthalia Methodist Cemetery. Pallbearers were: Jim

Wundt, Kyle Wundt, Jeff McIntosh, Bub Blundell, Wayne Pape and Tom Lindemann. Honorary Pallbearers were: Kenneth Pape, Noel Buster Lindemann and Dr. George Ray McEachern. The family received friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Seydler-Hill Funeral Home. Memorials may be made to the Phoenix Oncology of Texas/ Patients Donation Fund 1304 Wonderland World Drive, San Marcos, TX 78666 or the Gonzales County Veterans Memorials Association, 562 CR 238, Gonzales, Texas 78629.

Political Correctness on mascots: Where are our priorities?


Well, after last weeks news from the Houston ISD, you knew it would only be a matter of time. Houston school trustees, facing multiple scandals over school staff not reporting child abuse, a school principal shoplifting and perpetually-low student performance, took decisive action Dec. 5 to change the name of several school mascots so that they wont offend Native American history or culture. Superintendent Terry Grier introduced a resolution to change the names of several school mascots, including the Lamar High School Redskins and Westbury Rebels, to to show respect and cultural sensitivity in nicknames and mascots. It received unanimous approval from the HISD Board of Trustees, although alumni, students and parents from all the affected schools spoke out against the policy. Interestingly enough, the district made no move to address an issue raised in this weeks very-very liberal Houston Press newsmagazine.

Yet HISD agreed to spend thousands of taxpayer dollars to change the mascot names, because thats important.

Regardless of how one feels about ObamaCare, the federal deficit, Benghazi, and/or any other national issue, we should remember the now famous and recent comment by Chief Justice John Roberts. When ruling on the issue of ObamaCare, Roberts said it is not the role of the Court to protect people from the consequences of their political choices. We can vote in a President and Congress who will repeal the law. Its up to us, not the court to change laws. The Chief Justices comment clearly showed the citizens that we the people must act whether it is on the national level, or state level, or local level to defend their freedom from any laws or law-makers they dislike. Participation in the elections, i.e. voting is essential. More important, conservatives must remember that the defense of liberty and freedom begins in your backyard. If conservatives want to defeat liberals at the national level to repeal Obama Care, they must start at that local level by defeating their supporters. In Texas, there are many conservative grassroots groups across that have been organized to speak out against national liberal policies, but how many are organized to defeat local liberals? We should remember that young, local liberals but will mature into state and national liberals who will in turn influence national policy. Texas Democrats have developed a pipe-

Trey Lawrence never said. Theyre upset that using the Comanche name with our school fight song (The Shiner Beer Song) might cast a disparaging image of Native Americans drinking beer and acting like drunken Czechoslovakians. Were working to find something satisfactory to both parties. Likewise, the Gonzales Apaches have been visited by Native American representatives worried that their heritage is being made fun of. We take all such complaints very seriously, GISD Superintendent Dr. Kim Strozier did not say. Were continuing to negotiate with them to find a name that is not offensive. So far, theyve rejected several suggestions, including Renegades, Scalp-Hunters, Cannibals and Blood-Thirsty Savages. Were hopeful we can find a name that both respects their heritage and reflects the spirit of this community. Hallettsville Catholic Schools are already hard at work replacing all caricatures of their schools eaglefathered mascot, the Indian, with that of a turban-wearing, oliveskinned convenience store clerk.

But its not just the Indian mascots that are having problems. Nixon-Smiley CISD superintendent Cathy Booth declined to state that her district has been approached by representatives of the Respect for Equine Americans organization upset with the schools Mustangs mascot. Similar reports are coming in that Avian Americans are unhappy with the mascots of the Luling Eagles, Cuero Gobblers and St. Paul Cardinals. The American Feline Heritage Association is also putting pressure on Waelder and Moulton over the mascots at those schools. All too often, the nobility of the feline species is cast into doubt by names like Wildcats and Bobkatz because they imply uncontolled violence, a news release from the group reads. Our feline friends are, by nature, peace-loving animals. Thats nothing compared to the grief the school administrators in Flatonia and Yoakum are getting. An anti-dogfighting group not led by Michael Vick is organizing picketers to insist

the schools drop their Bulldog monikers in favor of breeds which are not used in dog-fighting. We hope by this campaign to raise awareness that fighting dogs on football fields is cruel and senseless, Vick never said. Were hoping they will consider adopting mascots which are more people-friendly, such as Poodles or Chihuahuas. Theres no telling where the latest round of Political Correctness will end. Perhaps some day well mature enough as a society to realize that none of these mascot names are offensive and making a big deal out of the matter is merely a way for limited-interest groups to grab some quick publicity. Admittedly, theres a temptation to line up my fellow redneck Texans to put some pressure on Bob McNair and Jerry Jones to change their teams nicknames. Given the kind of seasons those clubs are having, Texans and Cowboys are humiliating our heritage.

line of young liberals that they groom and prepare at the local level and then promote through their ranks into the national scene. Witness the rise of San Antonios mayor Julian Castro and state senator Leticia Van de Putte. Both have been pushed along by their party and the liberal media because of their gender and race, more than by anything else. Their tax and spend liberal policies are rarely discussed or analyzed. Van de Putte and Julians twin brother, then state representative and now U.S. Congressman Joaquin Castro, have fought against the state voter identification, controlling the state budget, and keeping education under local control. Like them, there are many other local liberals who have not been challenged, and who may come back to haunt conservative Texans later. To fight back, conservatives need to organize themselves so they can educate and inform local voters about local issues from a conservative point. Only then will local conservative candidates have a chance to be elected. For example, last year in 2012, the voter turnout in San Antonio was in the single digits for the mayors re-election, for citywide Pre-K program, and for a recent halfbillion dollar bond. That type of voter turn out was mostly seen again throughout Texas in the recent November 2013 elections. An uninformed and apathetic electorate cannot protect their personal liberties and freedoms, or their money the federal or local governments. We are the masters of our own destiny. As Chief Justice Roberts said, it is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. The road map is laid out to change the status quo of the national, state, and local liberal political agenda. Citizens should remember Roberts statement and prepare for 2014.

The war on inequality


President Barack Obama has his answer to Lyndon Johnsons War on Poverty. It is a war on inequality. The presidents formal declaration of hostilities came in a speech this month at the Center for American Progress, predictably praised as brilliant by his journalistic cheerleaders and touted by the White House as setting out the cause that will define the rest of his presidency. While LBJs war on poverty is nothing to emulate -- it costs $900 billion a year, yet has manifestly failed in the stated goal of uplifting the poor -- at least it had a clear, compelling rationale. Who can disagree that it would be better if fewer Americans were poor? Obamas implicit argument is that it would be better if fewer Americans were rich, or at least if they werent quite so offensively rich. He relied on dubious research and tendentious analysis to make his case, without ever admitting what, for him, must be the crux of the matter. Surely, income inequality offends his egalitarian sense of justice and aesthetics, and even if he didnt believe it had harmful real-word effects, he would wish the top 1 percent werent so wealthy as a social good in and of itself. There is no doubt that we long ago exited the economic Golden Age of the mid-20th century, and we arent going to return to it. President Obama could give a speech about that and never need to make a questionable claim. But he wants to make a case for war.

In his speech, the president said that inequality is bad for the economy and cited one study showing that greater income inequality means more fragile growth and more frequent recessions. Of course, one study can show almost anything. The study in question analyzed developing economies. He could just as easily have said that one study by a Harvard economist showed a correlation between increasing inequality and higher economic growth in the U.S. and other developed countries between 1960 and 2000. To maintain that rising inequality is a threat to the American Dream, the president insists that it is reducing income mobility. Here the evidence is just as weak. According to Scott Winship of the Manhattan Institute, the gap between the middle class and the poor hasnt grown much during the past few decades. It has been the very top of the income distribution that has gained the most. America does indeed have a serious mobility problem, especially in getting people out of poverty. But it has nothing to do with a small fraction of people being spectacularly rich. Mark Zuckerberg could be stripped of all his wealth tomorrow, and it wouldnt help anyone further down the income ladder. It wouldnt increase wages, or reduce out-of-wedlock child rearing, or lead to less incarceration, or revive the work ethic, all of which would enhance mobility and lift more people into the middle class. It would just make Mark Zuckerberg poor. Which is why Obamas war on inequality is so misconceived. We arent beset by a wealthy 1 percent destroying opportunity and immiserating the rest of the country. The president needs to reconsider his casus belli. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

In Your View
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. Chili Davis I suspect Id throw a hissy fit if some pulpy and tacky idjit cautioned me: Oh grow up, act your age! Whoa. Now such a declarative string of words such as those would have my nose out of joint and set me to hoppin mad. Yep. Thatd put me in one heck of a pucker. Its not that I fail to recognize that at present, in human years, Ive flipped the calendar some 836 months while waltzing through this life that is gauged by time. And should I be lucky enough to keep drawing breath into the future for another four months I will have enjoyed 70 years of being blessed among the Good Lords presence. Of my past, Ive had my share of bliss and blame. Joy and shame. Ive experienced adventure and adversity. Today, I am what some call retired. Some sage once said that once one retires if they rest, they rust. I agree. Fiercely. Another observer opined that retirement is when you quit working just before your heart does. Unfortunately, there is truth to that too. Too often. Last week it was announced that country-western legend Ray Price was going home to receive hospice care. He accepted the outcome and placed his faith in God, it was reported. He died Monday. One of his greatest hits was For the Good Times. He enjoyed the good times. But a song in one of his last albums was a beautiful yet malignant song called Time. The opening verse goes: Time is a monster that lives in our clocks Its heartless and shows no remorse Consuming our future as we fight That hundred year war. The third and final chorus: Time is a weapon, its cold and its cruel It knows no religion and plays by no rules Time has no conscience, when its all said and done Like a beast in the jungle that devours its young. The fourth verse sums it all up when it comes to TIME: But were all in the same boat so just hold on And ride to the end of the line. Time waits for no one Everyone runs out of time The song was released in 2007 and thats the year I allegedly went idle. To no longer check in at the workplace. To forsake tension and embrace pension. But you know what. Probably not. But for going on seven years this young fella has been busier than someone with a seven-year itch and an eight-day clock. When I aint scratchin, Im windin the clock. In self-analysis Id say my persona is not woven from a benign mediocrity. I will not accept a lackadaisical luster of living. Nor nod sympathically to ennui. I made up my mind that I would not be a lickspittle of a fella kowtowing to age and aches and pains. Nosirree. Despite hurtin for certain from atrial fibrillation and advanced emphysema. Surgery scars are merely reminders of my mortality. Nosirree. Now I do not possess a macho mentality. Like a blowhard that dabs beef jerky or goose liver behind his ears to prove his manhood to the ladies.

Meanwhile, numerous folks hustled about the fire and attended to the team. Bum nickered to the old soul trudging to meet us. Hey cowboy, step down and rest your bones, he said. Bum nickered again and rested his head against the mans chest. Dadgum you set up a homestead this year? I asked, and swung to the ground. My left knee buckled and I limped to meet my friend. He strode across the snow and grasped my hand to shake. His eyes sparkled and he smiled. His teeth glinted through his gray whiskers and he began to speak, but then he was silent peering at me. Are you okay? he asked. Theres something different. And he gazed straight into me. Im fine. Its been a different year but, everything thats transpired is for the best I have nothing but good news. So tell me who all is here? And I was grinning because the Missus was shuffling up behind him, and the smell of the wood smoke gave way to the scent of fresh baked cookies. Oh Mama! he said. And as he turned he bumped into her. Yeah, there you are Hey Herman Willie, its wonderful to see you again, she said. And her voice sounded like my grandmas. Heres some cookies for your horse, and she hugged my neck. I never expected to see you last year. You know Papa left me at home. It was such a nice surprise when you showed up with your cow-ponies hitched into Papas team. And she broke a cookie in half and offered it to Bum. The horse reached with inquisitive lips, took the offering, chomped for a couple of seconds, and then chewed with his mouth open savoring the new taste. Oh he likes it! she said. Whats his name? And who were those ponies last year? This is Bum, I said. Hes a half-brother to the

Looking Down from the Saddle
Herman Brune

two youve met. Hes bigger. Yes mam. Hes out of running blood. The two you saw, I call, Moe and Jocko. Theyre out of a cutting horse stud named Count Hickory. Do you own the stallion? No mam. I own the mare, and the mare is a dumpling-ass gray called Fatty. The woman cut her eyes at me, and I quickly continued. The mare gets called that because shes an easy keeper. She furrowed her brow and pouted. So I said, Well, being an easy keeper means shes not high maintenance. She has a butt, and I held my hands the appropriate distance apart, axe handle wide and stays fat and shiny without much feed. At this juncture my buddys wife gasped and stomped one foot. Well thats awful. No animal should be named so poorly. You should call her Gray Beauty, or Lily, or or Paloma, she said. No mam! I said. That pony gets special treatment. Shes the mama to all the horses youve met. Then I hesitated and said, and I dont think youre going to hear a western man using them kind of sissy names. The old lady ducked her head and slowly raised it again. This time giving me a sly smirk and saying, I know I was just messing with you. Why dont you and Papa go to the fire? Ill give Bum more cookies. Yes mam, I said, and we ambled to the blaze. Mama was teasing you, my friend said. But tell me hows your daughter, Sam? Shes too much like me. Shes going on her own left her corporate job to start her own business. Hmmm you reckon thats a good thing? Yep, in my estimation if you aint doing it for you youre putting money in somebody elses pocket. And no man can guarantee security. Thats something you must supply for yourself. Then a familiar figure tip-toed towards us. Well look-a-here, its little Ms. Jingles.

The pretty female elf giggled. She held two mugs in one hand and the stained coffee pot in the other. Here son got some spice for our coffee, said my pard and he dug for a flask. Your other favorite elf is here too. But I expect hell stay out of your reach. Yeah, keep that spying runt away from me. He spooked my pack string a couple of days ago tore the whole rigging out of one saddle. I dont need that squirt shadowing me to see if Im naughty or nice. Through the years got a busted collar bone and broke hand on account of him. Hes hiding. But hey Rusty is in the mountains with you! Yep, first time in 30-odd years weve been in the hills hunting together, I said. A long moment passed. I know why you thought Im different. Another moment stretched. Ive got a fiance. Well, Glory Be! She must be quite a gal! Yes sir my wandering days are numbered. After that we sipped coffee, time passed, and conversation degenerated towards politics. When it was time to leave I mounted Bum and asked, Yall figure we can meet some place warmer next time? And everyone laughed. Six weeks later: The cruise ship rocked and the rustle of tiny running feet and giggles awoke me. I arose and followed the sound to the top deck. There were my North Pole compadres lounging on pool chairs; the gentleman in trunks, his wife in a robe, Jingles in not much at all, and the runt staring and wishing to hide. This warm enough for you cowboy? Santa asked.

Nope. I am partial to simpler ideas. Good books (and yes, I read from a Kindle and Nook) when lazing. Others thoughts are seeds to continue building a muscle memory and not coming down with a case of brain bubbles. So as I continue to grow up I cotton to toys. Despite being run over by a tractor pulling a load of hogs when I three years old. Today, I play with a restored 1942 Farmall B tractor. In my collection also is a 1976 MG Midget. Dr. Deb and I exchanged mutual I-dos in 76 and last year thought it would be an ideal anniversary present. To each other. In motivating I rely on a collection of motorcycles. A retro Royal Enfield singlecylinder and a BMW adventure motorcycle (I am averse to calling such machines bikes). My two-wheel travels amount to 12,000 to 18,000 miles annually. Yes, they are man toys, but serious ones. To keep me company is my menagerie: two border collies, a one-eyed Lhasa apso, a Boston terrier, and three cats and two miniature donkeys and a small herd of Brangus cattle. I allot quite a lot of imagination in my company also. Not to boast, but I possess a sixth sense. I see living people. I take daily walks (well, six to five days of trekking a week) of two miles. Last year I weaned myself off an addiction to milk (gallon daily) with gobs of chocolate Ovaltine in it. As a result I shed 63 pounds. Going from 213 on the scales to 150 in five months and by golly I take pride in that achievement. An additional pastime of mine is to talk and smile to myself at the oddest of times. And not bothering to reason why. So I am approaching my seventh decade of two-stepping along in this wondrous world. Such a grand playground. Still active and not quite to the stage or phase that I have to do a Donald Trump comb-over. In popping one of those brain bubbles many will acknowledge that you dont get smarter as you get older. There just arent any stupid things left to do that you havent already done. Well, sister, in my case dont bet any buffalo nickels on it. Ill opt to tackle whatever develops. Be it a new carnival ride or a hike to wherever. I reason how can I be old when I havent grown up. Yet. Nor do I plan to down the road. When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to go to pieces like this but we all have to do it. Mark Twain

Penn Virginia (PVA) has reached an agreement with Magnum Hunter Resources to acquire the companys Eagle Ford properties in Gonzales and Lavaca counties for $401 million. Magnum Hunter will retain 7,000 net acres in Atascosa, Fayette, and Lee counties. The deal consist of approximately 40,600 gross (19,000 net) acres, with 46 gross (22.1 net) wells producing approximately 3,000 boe/d net in March of 2013. Seven wells are waiting to be completed and four wells are in some stage of drilling. Proved reserves of 12 million boe (37% PDP) were attributed to the assets at year-end 2012. H. Baird Whitehead, President and Chief Executive Officer said, This is a transformational acquisition which will

add significantly to our leasehold and drilling inventory in the Eagle Ford Shale play and is highly complementary to our existing operating areas where we and MHR have had very successful drilling results. If we assume PVA paid an average of $60,000 per flowing boe/d, that accounts for $180 million of the acquisition price. That leaves $221 million for the 19,000 net acres or a little less than $12,000/acre. Thats a rough estimate. Penn Virginia now has 83,000 gross (54,000 net) contiguous acres in the area with an inventory of 640 gross (420 net) drilling locations. PVA now has 117 gross (82 net) wells producing an average of 10,900 boe/d. Drilling for the year in the Eagle Ford will now increase from 38 (28.8 net) wells to 62 (39.3 net) wells. Penn Virginias capital budget will increase by $7282 million as a result.

NEW YORK Marathon Oil Corporation, at its Analyst Day in New York, is providing investors with a comprehensive report on the Companys global operations, including a review of strategic plans to achieve profitable growth and competitive returns for shareholders. The Companys plans include: accelerating Eagle Ford and Bakken rig activity 20% each; 100% rig activity increase planned for Oklahoma Woodford. When you look at the three priorities for our 2014 business plan - accelerating our rig activity in three of the highest-value domestic resource plays, marketing our North Sea assets and increasing our share repurchase authorization we believe they definitively reinforce our stated strategy of creating long-term shareholder value and a commitment to rigorous portfolio management integrated with robust capital allocation, said Marathon

Oil President and CEO Lee Tillman. Our continued focus on operations and execution excellence across all our assets will help drive approximately 10 percent production growth in 2013, excluding Alaska and Libya. We believe this standard of performance, coupled with continued resource growth, fully supports an accelerated investment in our three high-quality resource plays -- the Eagle Ford, Bakken and Oklahoma Woodford. This increased activity un-

derpins our confidence in delivering approximately 4 percent year-on-year growth in overall 2014 volumes, excluding Alaska, Angola and Libya. Additionally, the marketing of our North Sea assets represents another example of our ongoing commitment to portfolio management. In the past three years, we have closed or agreed upon nearly $3.5 billion in non-core asset divestitures, surpassing the upper end of our stated $1.5 to $3 billion target.

Eagle Ford Rig Report

Marathons Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford development (Courtesy eaglefordshalenews.com)

The Eagle Ford Shale rig count increased two rigs to 267 running over the past week. Marathon Oil held its analyst day earlier in the week and released an updated resource estimate for the companys Eagle Ford properties. Initially, the company thought it would recover 469 million boe in the region and now expects that number is greater than 1 billion boe. Marathon also plans to co-develop the Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford from pads where viable. The U.S. rig count increased 7 rigs from 1,775 to

1,782 running over the past week. A total of 369 rigs are targeting natural gas (6 less than last week) and 1,411 (14 more than last week) are targeting oil in the U.S. The remainder are drilling service wells (e.g. disposal wells, injection wells, etc.). 848 or 48% of rigs active in the U.S. are running in Texas. Baker Hughes rig count is quoted here. Baker Hughes also releases its own Eagle Ford Rig Count that covers the 14 core counties (229 rigs). The rig count published on EagleFordShale.com includes a 30 county area impacted by Eagle Ford development. A full list of the counties included can be found in the table near the bottom of

this article. Eagle Ford Oil & Gas Rigs The natural gas rig count increased one rig to 27 running this past week. At this time in 2012, there were more than 60 rigs and in 2011 there were more than 90 rigs targeting natural gas in the area. Dont be surprised if this is the bottom and we see more natural gas rigs in 2014. Natural gas traded up $0.30 this week to ~$4.40/mmbtu on Friday afternoon. The oil rig count increased one rig to 239 rigs running. WTI oil prices held basically flat on the week at $97/bbl. Eagle Ford light crude traded at $94/ bbl on Dec. 11th.

SHINER: Excitement grips town for state title contest


Continued from page A1

SHINER Principals Greg Murrile and Brad Oden presented the results of the TEA Final Accountability Report at the December 11 regular Board Meeting of Shiner ISD. Elementary School Principal Murrile explained, Most of the schools in Texas received the rating of Met Standard. There are only two categories, Met Standard and Improvement Required. Its not that hard to meet that stan-

dents. We received distinction in reading/ELA, barely missed in math. Because our numbers are really good, we dont have a lot of gaps to close, continued Murrile. The accountability ratings are based year to year, rather than an average of years. Students have to improve on an individual level annually. High School Principal Oden reported, There were no changes to where we were previously. We did very well, and scored

88. Distinction earned in ELA and math. With the accountability system, we have to improve year after year. Tim Kalich joked, We shouldnt go from 90 to 98 all in one year, but grow incrementally, 1% at a time, producing a round of laughter from the board. In the Superintendents Report, Trey Lawrence announced U.S. Representative Blake Farenthold will present the Shiner High School Band with a Congressional Reading commemorating the State Champion-

ship in Marching Band on Tuesday, December 17 at 3:00 p.m. In other business: Shiner ISD enroll ment is down slightly to 568. From the Superinten dents Report: 68.8% of budget realized. The Wellness Plan was presented and approved. The Special Education Services Performance Based Monitoring Plan was presented and approved. The Board voted to move next scheduled meeting of Jan. 8 to Jan. 15.

I am glad we get the chance in our high school career, said running back-defensive back senior Marcus Coleman. We need to work hard, play as a team and make sure we have fun. We will never forget this, Stafford said. It is far as you can get and I hope everyone remembers this for the rest of their life. Cerny said the team needs to remember the journey they went on to get this far. Stafford said it is honor to play in an NFL stadium. While the fans are very excited to having the team at state, the players will focus solely on winning the game. The enjoyment will hopefully be after the game with celebration of a state championship. Everyone else can enjoy it and we are the ones who have to take a business-like approach, Cerny said.

FIRE: Historic home devastated


Continued from page A1

The first responding unit from the Gonzales Volunteer Fire Dept. immediately called for a second alarm after seeing smoke boiling

out of the attic, and eventually units from the Waelder, Belmont and Seguin fire departments joined GFD battling the blaze. The height of the home proved problematic for

firefighters as they attempted to attack the blaze, at one point adding a city lift truck from the electric department in an attempt to rain water down on the attic inferno. Firemen made several attempts to attack the blaze from the interior of the house, but were forced back by thick smoke and flames. The arrival of a bucket truck from Seguin initially proved decisive and enabled officials to declare the fire under control around 3:30 p.m., but it flared up again and kept Gonzales firefighters busy until after 6 p.m. Some quick thinking by one Gonzales police officer enabled responders to remove the couples two cars from the garage undamaged. Officer Travis Sowell and Gonzales Mayor Bobby Logan later provided the scenes most poignant moment when they retrieved the couples two Dachsunds from a fenced-in area be-

Getting all bent out of shape over those darned Cowboys


I dont normally get bent out of shape about these blasted Dallas Cowboys, but what they did on Sunday was just totally uncalled for. I looked at that score when they had a pretty good lead and forgot about them until I heard that they had lost the game. I just cant believe that they did that.

They had a good Christ-

mas program at Monthalia United Methodist Church last Sunday. As is the tradition, Santa had Christmas bags for the young ones. We have had a really good Santa for the last couple of years. The suit fits him just fine. Leleigh Lindemann just didnt know what to make of that Santa. She was not quite sure that the Christmas bag was worth getting close to Santa or not. After the services they had a luncheon in the parish hall. All kinds of dishes were there for the delectable eating. We want to wish Wade Wilson a belated birthday. His birthday was on December 16th. Lola fixed a delicious meal on Sunday and invited Michael, Jaime, and Josh up to eat dinner

with them. Seems like she forgot the baking powder in the biscuits, threw it in later, and nobody would have been the wiser. Lola can make biscuits so well that she can do it in her sleep, throws them in that cast iron frying pan, and they come out delicious. He got a few birthday presents, a birthday call from his brother Pat and a call from Laddie. Then Lola fixed him rice and chicken the next day. I think that Twerpt has declared war on Samson. I am sure glad that this big cat has decided not to hurt him by sitting on him. That is all it would take. Pepe just puts out his paw and pushes Twerpt away from the food bowl. Oh little Twerpt gets mad. That little sputtering dog is hilari-

ous to watch. She gets so mad and cannot do a thing about it. She gets out of breath and starts coughing and that is the end of her. They are all looking forward to Christmas because they might get some more turkey or ham. Have a good week, be careful and God Bless. Samson says it is time to go to bed. He doesnt like the cold weather outside any better than I do. He said that the birds dont sing on key. They dont even fly a straight line. When I asked Samson about this straight line business, that big old cat smarted off to me and told me that it was something only cats knew about. I guess I just will have to let it go this time. Ha! Have a good week, and God Bless.

Its about the reason for the season, not the origin
The Christmas season has become frenzied activity revolving around gift-giving, parties and self gratification. There is more attention paid to decorating our homes, entertainment and purchasing stuff than on what the day is supposed to be about. God is too often a second thought and in many cases no thought at all. Christ has been replaced by a man in a red suit who knows who has been naughty or nice, reads every ones letters and fulfills every childs desires. He knows where everyone lives and makes it to every childs house in one night. Santa is omniscient and omnipotent. Then we tell our kids that he isnt real. At the same time we tell them that Jesus sees everything they do, that Jesus answers their prayer, and that Jesus knows them. I cant help but wonder whether

Love, Eloise
Eloise Estes
this had anything to do with my confusion in believing the truth about God and Jesus, and why it took half a lifetime for me to accept Christ into my life. Just a thought. There are many Christians who question whether they should or should not celebrate Christmas. Their argument is this: Christmas is obviously pagan because: There is neither Biblical command or precedent for it; Christians did not observe it until the time of Constantine (after 313 AD); only then did the Church of Rome introduce it; The Date of Christmas and its many customs all come from pagan sources; When Christians observe Christmas in any way they are participating in paganism. I dont agree. Celebrating Christs birth does not contradict a commandment of God or violate an essential teaching of the Bible. To observe Christmas because you choose to, not because

you have to, is completely permitted before God. This is a dedicated time throughout the world to remember how God showed His love for us and keep in mind that the season is all about love. Our gift-giving is meant to be an expression of our love for one another. Getting caught up in the materialism aspect of the season defeats the real reason this day is to be celebrated. Without involving Christ in our Christmas celebration the day is meaningless. What other birth has impacted the world in such dramatic ways? A.D. (Anno Domini, meaning the year of the Lord) and B.C.(before Christ) are epochs used in dating years according to His estimated birth. The entire bible revolves around Christ. More than 300 fulfilled prophesies were about Him. Hundreds of years before His birth, the prophets spoke of the light that would come into this dark world to show us the way to salvation, becoming our lifeline back to God. To experience the true spirit of Christmas we must come to know Christ not just know about Him. Knowing Jesus means having a personal relationship with Him. The emptiness

we feel is not a physical need. It is a spiritual hole that only He can fill. The Bible tells us that believing and accepting Him as our personal Savior produces changes in our lives. So if you are struggling with feelings of anxiety, worry, anger, frustration, loneliness and depression then you need to ask Jesus into your life and let Him be your best friend. God desires that all people be saved through belief in His Son Jesus. The gift of salvation comes only through belief in what the bible says about Him. But, a gift left unopened cant be enjoyed. To receive the benefit from anything that is good for us we must be willing to do our part to receive it. We eat when we are hungry, drink when we are thirsty and take medication that is prescribed, because we accept the fact that doing these things will keep us in good health. But what if, in our ignorance, we dont? We would die. Food, water and medications that sit on a shelf, outside of our bodies, do not do us any good. These vital elements must be ingested and become a part of our makeup. When we allow them to do their work as intended, these necessary elements began

to slowly become a part of our chemistry and make a noticeable difference in us. Christ is called the bread of life because He is the sustenance we need to be spiritually alive. Just like food, water and medicine Jesus also works from within. When we take Him off the shelf and into our hearts He becomes an active ingredient that produces revitalizing changes in us. If we need our bodies cured, if we want peace in the midst of crisis and joy through the worst of circumstances Jesus is the missing ingredient. He is able to free us from addictions, mental anguish and physical sickness when we let Him in. This is the assurance we have when we believe. To receive something weve never had, we must do something weve never done. Christ is the love, the peace and the joy we celebrate this season. No other gift can compare to the gift of Jesus. Lets invite Him to be our guest of honor. God keep you safe till next time... love, eloise Friend me on Facebook @loveeloise.com

Dear Gonzales ISD School and Community Family, It is the Christmas season once again. What a wonderful time of year! I hope that you are all doing well, staying warm and enjoying holiday time with family and friends. Our campuses have been very busy finishing projects, mid-year exams and sharing wonderful programs. All of our Christmas and holiday programs have been exceptional. We love to see the joy in our students as they perform. We are reminded of the reason that we are here. We are looking forward to holiday time with family and friends. When we return we will begin our second semester of classes. We look forward to anticipating new challenges of the New Year 2014, planning and preparing for higher expectations as we continue to strive for excellence in all that we do. A caption of our Gonzales ISD Mission statement highlights a commitment to foster, compassionate and dynamic citizenship in an ever changing world. Our teachers, staff and parents work to promote opportunities for students to apply academic and social knowledge by engaging in service learning projects. We are so blessed to work with your children. We are continually proud of such a special and caring student body. I would like to take this opportunity to brag on a few of our students kind efforts to give back to the community. All of our schools have assisted GCAM with canned food items. Gonzales Elementary alone collected over 2200 canned food items. Elementary students are taking leadership roles as well. The GE food drive was led up by 4th grader, Jacob Bakken. Gonzales JH reported over 1318 canned food items were contributed. GJH students walked and delivered food items last week. North Avenue completes their food drive this week. Youngsters at East Avenue Primary helped with the Gonzales ISD Education Foundation dinner by decorating placemats with their own designs. East Avenue Primary school also helped with safe practice for other youngsters by hosting a Car Seat Check for the Texas A & M AgriLife Extension office. Gonzales Elementary students have also worked to support needy children in other ways. GE student Leslie Wiliamson, 3rd grader, started a fundraiser for Normas House to help buy toys for kids. The Stop Bullying Club started by Brooklyn Simper and Grace Morgan last year still meets weekly and had 80 students participate at the most recent meeting. The club is performing puppet skits to demonstrate role modelling against bullying. North Avenue students also assisted with faculty fundraising for students who are involved with CPS to buy them things for Christmas. Additionally, the fine arts classes will also be making Christmas cards for the Texan nursing home and ReHab Center. Gonzales Junior High students will be gearing up for participation in Relay for Life this spring. Last year students participated in a campus based fundraiser for this event. GHS Leo Club students supported Relay for Life with a game booth. North Avenue holds a fundraiser booth each spring as well. Gonzales High School

students participating in Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society) are making Christmas cards for every resident of the Heights and Texan Nursing Homes. Additionally, they will also be sharing warm throws and fuzzy socks with grippers to the nursing home residents. The gift of time and encouragement is also often seen through the efforts of our students. The Gonzales High School band and GHS Cheerleaders Team helped welcome Walmart at the grand opening and worked to raise funds to make a $6000.00 contribution to Gonzales Memorial Hospital to assist others in receiving annual exams for unfunded women in the fight against breast cancer. The Art students and cheerleaders did face painting for the East Avenue Fall Festival. The GHS Flames Dance Team contributed food items for a local benefit and worked the benefit by handing out food plates. The girls basketball team honors local veterans at each home game. The Anchor Club hosts Senior Citizen Bingo and serves a meal on the third Tuesday of every month at Country Village Square for any senior citizen. The Anchor Club also assisted the Pilot Club and worked easels for the Camera Club at Come and Take It, served refreshments for Veterans at Veterans Day Celebration, served as docents for the historical homes tour, and delivered meals to Gonzales County residents on Thanksgiving Day. The Future Scientists help save lives by sponsoring blood drives and have sponsored two blood drives this semester. The football team and Film Crew from GHS also assisted with the Veterans Day Celebration. The agriculture classes held a chili cook off to assist with the food drive for the local community. Students from all campuses also assist in the promotion of the Gonzales Clean Up days and clean up efforts. To work with your children is a gift. We commend their good work as they grow and learn to become caring citizens by giving back to their community. I know there are many more efforts that are not reported. For those who I have missed know that we are very proud of you as well. We also extend a big thanks to the many teachers and sponsors who support students to promote humanitarian efforts and good citizenship. We also thank the partners who work with us to extend and promote learning and high standards. As always, I thank you for taking an active role in your childs education. Please dont hesitate to call with questions or concerns. As we support each other in learning during this busy and joyous time, remember to read each day. It is the best thing you can do at home to reinforce your childs academic progress. Heres wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Christmas holiday! Happy New 2014!

LOCKHART Three Caldwell County men have been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of an Alabama man durring a robbery earlier this month. Caldwell County Sheriff Daniel Law said that on Dec. 7, Caldwell County Sheriff s Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of J. McHugh Dr. in Dale on a Welfare Concern. Deputies arrived and located a deceased male who had been shot and made contact with their Criminal Investigation Division due to suspected foul play Criminal Investigators then made contact with the Texas Department of Public Safety and requested their assistance in the case. Investigators with the assistance of the Texas Rangers gathered evidence and found that the tenant of the house was Mr. Virgil Dobbins who later in an interview with investigators advised that Mr. Russell Marten had recently come from Moundville, Ala., to care for his property while he was in the Hospital.

In the course of questioning Dobbins investigators received information indicating that robbey may also have been committed at the time Martin was killed. Investigators found that on Dec. 7 The Lockhart Police Department had responded to a Shots Fired Call which through their investigation revealed it had been a drive by shooting in which a Pedro Lucio, 23, was charged for Assault on a Peace Officer, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Resisting arrest, Deadly Conduct, and Criminal Mischief. Louis Holt, 35, and a Trey Hopes, 20, who were seen by witnesses in the car with Lucio during the offense, were not located. Investigators found that some of the items in the vehicle involved in the drive by shooting matched some of the items taken from Mr. Dobbins house. Investigators found probable cause to secure Evidentiary Warrant which led to locating property at the residence of Pedro Lucios which belonged to Mr. Dobbins. They then interviewed Pedro Lucio, who admitted to shooting Mr. Martens.

Warrants were secured for the arrest of Pedro Lucio, Louis Holt and Trey Hopes for the Offense of Capital Murder which was committed while in the commission of a Burglary/ Robbery Investigation believe that on Dec. 6 the three suspects entered the residence located at 126 J. McHugh Drive in Dale, and while in the commission of a Burglary/Robbery Pedro Lucio shot and killed Marten. Warrants for the Offense of Capitol Murder were served on suspects Lucio and Holt, who was also found to be in the Caldwell County Jail for arrest made by Lockhart Police Department on an unrelated offense. Caldwell County Court at Law Judge Edward Jarett set $500,000 Bonds on both Lucio and Holt for the Offense of Capital Murder, a First Degree Felony. Hopes surrendered himself at the Lockhart Police Department on Friday. He also faces a $500,000 bond.

Labor of love comes to fruition


Story and Photos By DAVE MUNDY
manager@gonzalescannon.com

Barbara Hawkins explained things simply. We did this with a lot of love, she said during Saturdays ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the Edwards Association Senior Housing Apartments, because our seniors deserve a lot of love. Saturdays ceremonies marked the grand opening of the eight-apartment complex on the corner of Robertson and Huisache streets, and the end of

a little more than two years worth of work. Ground-breaking was held in November, 2011. The apartments are specifically designed for senior living, with broad hallways, spacious rooms and a very nice hardwood floor finish. The entire complex is ADA-compliant. Mayor Bobby Logan and Councilman Tommy Schurig congratulated Hawkins, who wrote the HUD grant for funding, and Edwards Association leaders Lawrence Fryar and Wray Hood, who spearheaded the effort to develop community support for the

effort to create nice living spaces for some of the communitys most deserving residents. Mr. Fryar, you are a man of your word, Logan said. Weve got one persistent man and some persistent ladies here, Schurig said. You have turned what was a horse pasture into an immaculate living space. The property will be open to qualifying residents age 62 and older, under the management of property Mayor Bobby Logan salutes project leaders Wray manager Shari Tate. Porter Diller Hood, Barbara Hawkins and Lawrence Fryar. Below, Hawkins speaks to the gathering before leading served as the architect. tours of the apartments.

Traditions collide in state title contest

Shiner vs. Stamford

Two teams that have played in state title games but have never played each other faced off in the championship game Thursday. Shiner was set to play Stamford at 10 a.m. Thursday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in the Class 1A Division I state championship game. The Comanches defeated Mart, 49-22, in the semifinal round last week in Round Rock. The Bulldogs were 34-26 winners over Hico in their semifinal game, played Saturday in San Angelo. Shiner was in the title game for the fourth time in its history, winning in 1986 and 2004, and finishing runner up in 2003. Stamford made its third straight trip to the state title game. In 2012, they fell to Mason and last year, defeated Mart. I would say they have the advantage there (recent state championship game experience) but they are at a disad-

vantage because they played Monday (Dec. 9) because of the weather and then had to come back and play again on Saturday, and now have to play on Thursday, Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said on Monday. The Bulldogs average 42 points a ball game and give up under 19 points a game.

Thursday, 10 a.m.

While Stamford as a team may be a little unfamiliar to Shiner,, their offensive style will be very familiar to the Comanches. They run a spread offense, no huddle, with one-back and no-back formations, Cerny said. We have seen spread three playoff games (Mason, Thorndale, Mart). Like most spread offenses Shiner has faced, The Bulldogs quarterback is the trigger man. Senior Bo Wimberly has completed 137-of-214 passes for 1,981 yards, 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Wimberly leads Stamfords ground game with 1,532 yards on 201 carries and 27 touchdowns. He is tall, has a good arm and runs the ball well, Cerny said. Running back Eric Sanchez has 69 carries for 511 yards and five touchdowns. Oklahoma State-bound receiver James Washington has caught 73 passes for 1,331 yards and 24 touchdowns. Washington is a real explosive receiver, he said. Stamford will run jet sweeps and lead quarterback STATE, Page B4

nine points in any of the other quarters. Defense played really good and we played the full-court trap well, Kittens head coach John Meisetschleager said. We missed some easy shots but once we got going, we were okay. Thorndale took the first lead of the game in the first frame on a free throw by Emily Garza. Moulton shot back on buckets by Graisyn Nieto, a triple by Malori Mitchon and a score from Kendall Kristynik, from the feed of Mitchon, to lead 9-1 at the end of the first.

Having just finished with football over a week ago, the Gonzales varsity basketball team was not in the best basketball shape and suffered from fatigue in a 54-47 loss to Wimberley Tuesday night at GHS Special Events Center. We were real tired and had lots of fouls because of it, Gonzales head coach Raymond Lopez said. The effort from the players was great. We played good as a group. Lopez said the Apaches will improve as they get more in basketball condition. The Texans opened the first quarter with a 5-0 lead and Gonzales got on the board with a steal-andscore by Jared Smit. He later repeated the feat to bring the Apaches to within 9-4, to counter two Texan baskets. A layup by Christian

FREDERICKSBURG Long a hotbed for cycling and considered the cycling capital of Texas, the Texas Hill Country will get its first taste of a Gran Fondo cycling event with the inaugural Texas Gran Fondo on April 5, 2014 in Fredericksburg. The Texas Hill Country has phenomenal features that make it ideal for road cycling. The panoramic views of the area, winding roads and the Texas hospitality will certainly make the Texas Gran Fondo one of the most popular events of the season said Humberto Olivo, Texas Gran Fondo organizer, there is a reason why the Texas Hill Country is known as the cycling capital of Texas. The inaugural Texas Gran Fondo will start and finish in downtown Fredericksburg, with routes throughout scenic Gillespie County. The cycling event will offer three course options- the Gran Fondo, a fast-paced, challenging 95 mile route including a special King and Queen of the Mountain

timed segment; the Medio Fondo, a challenging 56 mile route; and the Piccolo Fondo, a friendly but fast 35 mile route. The Texas Gran Fondo will bring together cyclists and teams from across Texas and beyond. We have already confirmed riders from the Dallas Fort Worth area, Houston, San Antonio, Austin and other major cycling hubs in New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, Canada and Mexico said Jennifer Bloomberg, Texas Gran Fondo Coordinator. Different from traditional century rides, the Texas Gran Fondo provides individual timing for all partic-

Bilger helped give Wimberley a 12-6 lead. Starting with a threepoint basket by Aaron Hunt, the Apaches scored seven straight points. Alyas Ramirez made a basket and Tyshawn Erskin scored after getting a turnover. The Texans reclaimed the lead, 14-13, on a basket by Hudson Doty to conclude the first quarter. Wimberley scored five of the first seven points of the second quarter to improve their lead to 19-16. The Apaches eventually went ahead 22-21 after a Jordan Johnson steal turned into an Erskin pass to Darrance James for a basket and James then assisted Ramirez on a field goal. The Texans scored nine straight points to lead 3022 at halftime. Gonzales made a late third-quarter run to trail just 37-35 and the Texans managed a 5-2 run to hold a 42-37 lead go go into the final eight minutes.

In the fourth quarter, points from James and Johnson allowed Gonzales to tie the game at 42-42. It was as close as Gonzales would come to taking the lead for the rest of the game as Wimberley went on a 12-5 run to close out the contest. The Gonzales junior varsity team lost to Wimberley 71-46, with Devin Hunt scoring 24 points and Chris Cantu adding 18 more. The Apaches freshman team lost 33-18 and was led by Wayne Fowler, who had six points.

Shiner punishes Mart to reach state finals


ROUND ROCK For the first two Mart drives, it seemed nothing went right for the Shiner defense. After that, it seemed nothing went right for the Mart offense. The Comanches found themselves down by seven after Mart moved quickly to score on its first two possession and Shiner settled down, holding Mart to just one score afterwards in a 49-22 win in the state semifinals at Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex in Round Rock. Shiner got a little payback against the Panthers, having lost to Mart last year in the semifinals, 42-7, also played at Reeves Athletic Complex. I am so proud of these guys, Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. They really stepped up. We got down early again and Mart looked faster than us. Shiner completely dominated on offense with 500 total yards of offense and scored every time they had the ball, not counting the possessions where Shiner had the ball when the half ended. Our offense answered every time, Cerny said. They did not hold us (out of the end zone) once and our offensive line did a heck of a job. Quarterback Jacob Stafford had another monstrous offensive game with 205 yards on 31 carries and five touchdowns. He completed both passes he threw for another 56 yards and a touchdown. Running back Marcus Coleman added 117 yards on 16 carries and a touchdown while Chad Neubauer ran 20 times for 128 yards. All three backs benefited from the stout play of the Shiner offensive line, who was so crisp that Shiner had just one rush for negative yards. We are all brothers, Coleman said. We play like brothers and we live like brothers. I love my team for all of my brothers alike. We owe our rushing yards to our offensive line. They were good blockers for us tonight. They did the job. Shiner was very successful running on the inside against Mart. We knew that Mart was small inside and that no one they played that just went straight at them. Their opponents were just spread teams, Cerny said. We had a good practice run at Thorndale and took the same game plan into this game. Mart used its speed to score on its first two drives, in the first quarter. The Panthers drove 70 yards in just two plays, getting a 52-yard run by running back DMarcus Cosby and used a five-play, 91-yard march, capping it with a

Marcus Coleman (right) follows the lead of Chad Neubauer. (Photo by Mark Lube) 25-yard run by quarterback DNerian Thomas. After those scores, Thomas and Co. found themselves with considerably less room to run. They had two turnovers on downs, the games lone punt and had two turnovers, losing a fumble and throwing an interception late in the game. Instead of being aggressive, we had to slow play things and string them out, Cerny said. You attack Mart and they find a seam, and hurt you. We made an adjustment to play technique and stay on the line of scrimmage. It helped us. Mart has not seen a defense like us this year. Instead of scoring in a hurry, Shiner drove the field on its first drive, 74 yards in 11 plays and six minutes. The Comanches ate up the turf a few yards at a time and Stafford completed a 29-yard strike to Tyler Patek on fourth down to tie the game at 7-7 Shiner forced the 14-14 score after 10-play, 67-yard march. Chad Neubauer had an 11-yard rush to the Panther 34 about halfway through the drive, Coleman had a 21-yard gain and Stafford capped the drive with a 1-yard sneak. Thomas had a 49-yard run from his 28 to the Shiner 23 on the first place of the next drive. Mart was slowed down and Thomas was dropped for an 11yard loss to the 30 on third down. His pass fellow incomplete on fourth down and 17. Shiner then copied Mart and drove 70 yards in five plays. Neubauer had a 24yard run on the second play to get into Mart territory and Stafford later finished things with a 38-yard run. After forcing Mart to punt, Shiner went 70 yards again but took more time. Coleman had a 15 yard run late in the drive to set up the Stafford 2-yard touchdown run to give Shiner a 28-14 halftime lead. To open the third quarter, Shiner drove 72 yards for another touchdown. Stafford had an inside run of 47 yards that nearly went for a touchdown. He scored on a 1-yard run. The Panthers looked poised to score on their next drive. Thomas ran 28 yards from his 45 to the Shiner 27 and then had a gain down to the 2. Thomas got near to the goal line when he fumbled into the end zone and Shiner recovered. The Comanches then added 80 more yards to their total. Stafford had a 4-yard run on fourth and 1 to keep things going. He hit Caleb Kalich for a 27yard pass to set up another touchdown run. Mart finally got some points on a 55-yard drive that saw Thomas have to throw some passes. Crosby had a 6-yard touchdown run called back on holding. Thomas went to Austin Rawls for a 10yard pass and Shiner was called for a personal foul to move the ball closer to the end zone, at the 4. Thomas scored on the next play and Crosby got the two-point run ro bring Mart within 42-22with 10:29 left in the game. The Comanches got the onsides attempt by the Panthers at the Panthers 49. Coleman had a 37-yard run to finish the drive and cap scoring in the contest. Patek later picked off Thomas at the Shiner 3 and the Comanches ran out the last four minutes.

draws for its running plays and does just about anything in the passing game. They throw short screens, deep passes. They just throw the ball all over the place, Cerny said. It is a wide-open spread offense. Stamford averages nearly 400 yards a game on offense and The Bulldogs average around 220 on their offensive line. We cannot give up a big play. We have to make Stamford earn every yard, Cerny said. Team-wise, Stamford is not as fast as Mart but still has some speedsters and Washington has that honor. Washington will also return punts and kickoffs, and is the Dogs place kicker. Cerny said Shiner will have to play sound technique, and guard Wimberly and Washington carefully. The key will be containing their spread offense, senior quarterback-linebacker Jacob Stafford said. Stamford is not as speedy as Mart but it still will be a great challenge. The Stamford defense is

very multiple. Their base is a 3-5-3 and will come out in the 5-3 when we line up in our double-tight formations, Cerny said. Stamford has also shown the 4-3. They just like to attack. Linebacker Craig Oliver leads the team with 150 total tackles and second on the list in Joey Aguilar (146 tackles). Linebacker Zai Zai Smith is credited with five of Stamfords 18 sacks on the year. Washington plays in the defensive backfield and has seven interceptions on the season. Playing in a state championship game, Shiner must score. We have to put points on the board, Cerny said. The Comanche backs and offensive line had a great performance against Mart with three 100-yard rushers. Quarterback Stafford led the pack with a 200-yard game and five touchdowns on the ground. Running backs Marcus Coleman and Chad Neubauer provided the perfect complement on the ground with 117 and 128 yards, respectively. We will have to take

advantage of our offensive opportunities and win the battle of field position, Cerny said. We just have to pound the ball on the ground, Coleman said. We do best when we grind out the clock with long drives and score, Stafford said. It really works out for us. We have the speed and enough strength to go up the gut. The time between games is not so bad for Shiner as they played last Friday would have six days between the semifinal and the final. Cerny said adjusting routine was a more of a challenge for the coaching staff. We did not get film on them until Sunday and we are also planning the entire trip to Arlington, from chartering buses to getting

TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Apply today Start today!!! Production/Poultry Processing

NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF APPLICATION AND INTENT TO OBTAIN A BENEFICIAL LAND USE PERMIT RENEWAL PERMIT NO. WQ0004467000
APPLICATION. City of Gonzales, 820 St. Joseph Street, Gonzales, Texas 78629, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to renew beneficial land use Permit No. WQ0004467000 to authorize the land application of wastewater treatment plant sludge for beneficial use on approximately 158.8 acres. The beneficial land use site is located on the north side of County Road 488, approximately 0.2 miles north of intersection County Road 488 and Farm-to-Market Road 532, and approximately 2.5 miles northeast of the City of Gonzales, in Gonzales County, Texas 78629. TCEQ received this application on September 6, 2013. The anticipated date of the first application of sludge, subject to issuance of the permit is September 4, 2014. The permit application is available for viewing and copying at the Gonzales City Hall, City Secretary, 820 St. Joseph Street, Gonzales, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facilitys general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, refer to application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=29.522777&lng=97.412222&zoom=13&type=r ADDITIONAL NOTICE. TCEQs Executive Director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application. After technical review of the application is complete, the Executive Director may prepare a draft permit and will issue a preliminary decision on the application. Notice of the Application and Preliminary Decision will be published and mailed to those who are on the county-wide mailing list and to those who are on the mailing list for this application. That notice will contain the deadline for submitting public comments. PUBLIC COMMENT / PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting on this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ will hold a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the Executive Directors decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Directors decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A person who may be affected by the application may request a hearing. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; applicants name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the proposed facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and, the statement [I/we] request a contested case hearing. If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the groups representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected members location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are germane to the groups purpose. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commissions decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. TCEQ may act on an application to renew a permit without providing an opportunity for a contested case hearing if certain criteria are met. MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Directors decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this specific application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. If you wish to be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION. All written public comments and requests must be submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, TCEQ, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, TX 78711-3087 or electronically at www.tceq.state.tx.us/ about/comments.html.

lifesaving actions

From Scoutalk.yumblr. com: Imagine youre 14. Youre awakened by your grandfather one morning when he experiences the first of five heart attacks. Your parents arent home, and its up to you to get him help. At the same time, you need to reassure your 8-year-old sister who is scared and has no one else to ask, whats happening to Papa?. This was no hypothetical question for Tyler Valis of Boy Scout Troop 262 in Gonzales. He faced this

life-threatening situation on the morning of September 7, 2012. Tyler stayed calm, remembered training hed received in Scouting and took action. He quickly helped his grandfather to a seat and tried to call his mother who was already at work. He left a message for his mom to call immediately and then called 911 when he saw his grandfather wasnt doing any better. All the while, he reassured his grandfather that help was on the way and comforted his younger sister. When the paramedics arrived, Tyler was able to give them all the information they needed to immediately start lifesaving measures. For his actions, our council presented Tyler with a Certificate of Merit. Many people make the mistake of assuming Scouting is just a club that takes kids camping. While we love the outdoors, one of Scoutings main goals is to develop young peoples courage to lead and selfconfidence to act in tough situations. Were proud to hold up Tyler as a shining example of what we teach in Scouting.

It was beloved American pianist and comedian Jimmy Durante who made the following sage observation: Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down. Famed markswoman and exhibition shooter Annie Oakley was born the daughter of Quakers, who gave her the name Phoebe Ann Moses. It was in July 1911 when daredevil Bobby Leach became the second person (and the first man) to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. His daring came

at a cost, though; he spent six months in a hospital, recovering from injuries due to his feat. He later went on publicity tours, recounting his experience and posing with the barrel that took him over the falls. He was on one such tour in New Zealand in 1926 when he slipped on an orange peel, injuring his leg slightly. The leg became infected, necessitating an amputation -- which still didnt save him.
