TEMPLE USDA Rural Development has announced funding for the Gonzales Healthcare Systems Foundation to advance healthcare technology and further increase the standard of patient care in Gonzales County. We are pleased to partner with the Gonzales Healthcare Systems to provide the most up-to-date medical equipment

ensuring rural residents have access to quality healthcare without leaving their local community, said Paco Valentin, USDA Rural Development State Director. A grant through USDAs Distance Learning and Telemedicine program for almost $300,000 will be used to improve critical teleradiological services provided by the Gonzales hospital. The funding announced Tuesday will be used to update the current teleradiological equipment making it possible for radiologists located several hours from the hospital to have immediate access to imaging sent from the Gonzales Hospital. This will provide for quicker collaboration and diagnosis between the local hospital and Radiology PartnersHouston, a practice highly specialized in every facet of radiology. The Gonzales Hospital currently serves patients with over 18,000 radiological diagnostic services annually. Clinical specialties such as cardiology, endoscopy, mammography, orthopedic, neurology, intracerebral angiography, vascular, gastroenterology, interventional, pediatric, GRANT, Page A6

Its almost inevitable that every family get into a scrap now and then. But one Gonzales family figured out how to turn a profit from it. When we started this on April 2, 1989, we had one little corner over there with a shack, a hand scale and a telephone pole, relates Arturo Mata, who along with his wife Cruz, launched A&S Recycling 25 years ago to turn scrap metal into cold cash. The A&S stands for Abigail and Santos, the couples children, who have followed their parents into the business and helped it continue to grow. From those humble be-

ginnings, the Matas have grown to completely fill a lot near the corner of Sarah DeWitt Dr. and the Waelder Highway and A&S Recycling now operates a separate yard on a 40-acre site in the Gonzales Industrial Park. We started with just the two of us, now we have 30 people most of them long-time, Arturo notes. Weve never had to lay anybody off. The companys longesttermed employee, Benjie Jalufka, has been with A&S for 23 years. The company has also gone from simply recycling The Mata Family from left, Abigail Casares, Arturo Mata, Cruz Mata and small amounts of metal Santos Mata celebrated the 25th anniversary of the start of A&S Recycling in A&S, Page A6 Gonzales this week.

Consensus: faking democracy through manipulation

We live in a republic, one based on the principles of democracy. That is, we elect others to represent our views by voting on issues in elected legislative bodies, from municipal utility boards to Congress. These days, however, those we elect arent exercising our will by voting on issues; instead, in many cases, they are reaching consensus instead. And thats the problem: consensus isnt in the definition of republic. Consensus is completely antiethical to the democratic principles upon which our country and our federation were founded, because it limits debate and quashes dissent and the achievement of consensus is molded, not voted upon. Consensus is a proven decisionmaking approach for sapping the intelligence of your entire team and creating watered-down resultS, Keld Jensen writes in a 2013 Forbes magazine article. One needs to look no further than ... government to see the inherent problems with consensus.

The inherent problem with consensus is that what emerges as consensus depends greatly on who is in charge of creating it. Consensus-building or team-building is the goal of the Delphi Technique, a method of opinion manipulation pioneered by the Rand Corporation in the early 1960s. The Delphi Technique brings together a group of stakeholders and allows each to give input on an issue to a facilitator, who then compiles the input into a final statement a conclusion almost always pre-ordained. It proved highly successful in the business world, where it was used to create backing for whatever the

Dave Mundy

chief executive wanted to do. As noted by Australian technical author Marge Heffernan in 2012: Many CEOs and leaders think that silence is indeed golden, that consensus is bliss ... But more often what it signifies is that there are no respected processes for surfacing concerns and dissent. Toward the end of the 1970s, the idea of consensus-building was taken up with enthusiasm by an emerging industry: public education. Where once school-board meetings had been raucous affairs, administrators began getting trained in the art of consensusbuilding to limit debate and criticism of the transformation of American public education from traditional methodology to the new dumbed-down outcomes-based model. During the complete overhaul of Texas education standards under Gov. George W. Bush in 199597, a number of sharp parents documented the use of the Delphi Technique during hearings conducted by the Texas Education

Agency right down to the use of colored cards and the isolation of dissenters. Curiously, the standards introduced by the states standardswriters were approved by a consensus at every meeting. And 19 years later, student performance continues to plummet, dropout rates are increasing and we have honor graduates taking remedial math and English in college. Consensus-building is even written into the policies of most Texas school districts courtesy of suggestions from the Texas Association of School Boards an organization run by (surprise!) former school administrators. School trustees are expected to publicly agree with the administration, even when they may privately disagree. Public dissension can get one censured. Consensus is what many people say in chorus but do not believe as individuals, noted Israeli politician and diplomat Abba Eban. Former British Prime Minister

John Major was even more blunt about why politicians succumb to the notion of consensus: A consensus politician is someone who does something that he doesnt believe is right because it keeps people quiet when he does it. We dont elect city councilmen or county commissioners or school trustees or state legislators or Congresmen or Senators to work together to reach consensus. We elect them to present our viewpoint and to fight for it. Nonetheless, consensus seems to be the lazy mans way of pretending to be democratic and the bureaucrats way of creating phony universal support for something few would accept otherwise. To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies, former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects. ... Nothing is more obstinate than a fashionable consensus.

Where is the outrage?

I take the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups very personally, because I was president of one of those groups that was targeted. It angers me that it happened, but also that the people involved are playing the race card to cover their sins. Over two years after the IRS targeted the San Antonio Tea Party and many other Tea Party groups across the nation to intimidate them and keep them from being involved in the 2012 presidential race, evidence continues to mount about more and deeper illegal behavior by the Democrats. Newly released e-mails obtained by Judicial Watch and show that if the IRS targeting had not been discovered and stopped, those groups would have faced trumped up criminal charges that were being coordinated by IRS AND the Justice Department. The idea that the IRS and the Justice Department were coordinating is particularly infuriating in light of the recent behavior by U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and by Attorney General Eric Holder in separate hearings. In both cases, they feigned their indignation at the proceedings. In light of the new revelations, it shows the level of their hypocracy. In Cummings case, incriminating emails between IRS official Lois Lerner and Cummings that show the pair possibly colluded to bring at least one conservative group, True the Vote of Texas to the IRS attention.

after Cummings publicly displayed indignation over the proceedings of an IRS hearing. In Holders case, he exploded at Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on April 8, during a House hearing about the Justice Departments failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial. Again, in a theatrical display of indignation, Holder (a supposed public servant) told Gohmert (an elected representative of the public) you dont want to go there, when threatened with contempt for failing to cooperate with Congress. The idea of civil rights for Democrats, particularly liberal minority Democrats, has turned into civil or legal revenge. They do not seem to be interested in justice, but rather in preventing others from having an equal footing on any issue or principle. This attitude can be seen locally in Texas communities. El Paso State Sen. Jose Rodriguez recently challenged some witnesses in a hearing on immigration over the description of his border area as a war zone. Perhaps he should work on the border without a safety vest for a just weekend. In another example, Gubenatorial candidate Wendy Davis and a host of Hispanic Democrats who were outraged when State Attorney General Greg Abbott said the Rio Grande Valley had a culture of corruption. Where is their outrage when Democratic Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino pleaded guilty to corruption, in the wake of his sons and 10 others law enforcement officers indictments? I am tired of these public displays of outrage and indignation by public officials who are covering their own guilt or playing politics. Whatever happened to working for the publics common good? What about my civil rights?

The equal-pay canard

To paraphrase the line often attributed to Mark Twain, there are lies, damn lies and the equal pay statistic. The factoid that women earn only 77 cents of every dollar earned by men is the focal point of a feminist cargo cult. It has its own movement and its own quasi-holiday, the so-called Equal Pay Day, marking how far into a new year women supposedly have to work to match what men made the prior year. The figure is presumed to clinch any debate over the continued existence of massive discrimination against women in the workforce. Drawn from Census Bureau data, the 77-cent stat is a comparison of the earnings of women working full time to men working full time. Its fatal flaw is that it accounts for none of the important factors that play into the disparity, such as hours worked. Mark Perry and Andrew Biggs of the American Enterprise Institute note that men are twice as likely to work more than 40 hours per week as women. Then there are differences in choice of occupation, in education and in uninterrupted years of work. Once such factors are taken into account, there is about a 5 percent differential in the earnings of women and men, about which various theories are plausible, including the effect of residual discrimination. What is clear is that the wage gap is largely an artifact of the fact that women devote more time to caring for children than do men. Harvard economist Claudia Goldin points out that the earnings of women without

children are almost equal to those of comparable men. Feminists are mistaking a byproduct of the laudable desire of mothers to spend time with their kids for a depredation of The Man. When asked in an MSNBC interview about the reliability of the pay-gap number, White House economist Betsey Stevenson confessed: I agree that the 77 cents on the dollar is not all due to discrimination. No one is trying to say that it is. But you have to point to some number in order for people to understand the facts. There you have it: For people to understand the facts, you have to give them an easily misunderstood statistic, usually without necessary context and spun in the most inflammatory fashion possible. Enter President Barack Obama. He wrings every bit of dishonesty he can out of the number. At the Equal Pay Day event at the White House, he marveled at the simplicity of it all: A woman has got to work about three more months in order to get what a man got because shes paid less. Thats not fair. Thats like adding an extra six miles to a marathon. Such is his subtle rendering of a number that even his own economic adviser admits must be handled with care. Hillary Clinton, whose prospective presidential campaign will be predicated on every feminist cliche her supporters can muster, tweeted on Equal Pay Day, 20 years ago, women made 72 cents on the dollar to men. Today its still just 77 cents. More work to do. Yes, never tire or relent. The flogging of the bogus statistic can never end. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

There are two things no man will admit he cannot do well: drive and make love. Stirling Moss, English race car driver Deb, the dog doc/wife, and I have always been ones to Let the good times roll! Ready to rally on a moments (a moment, by the way, is 90 seconds) notice. And in that moment we are apt to have a problem, at times, in preparing to travel. It seems that we possess a passel of polluters: two cars, two trucks, a classic MG Midget, and a number of motorcycles. So when Doc queries, What are we gonna take? I have to give it a one-count and make a spot decision. Since I consider myself the Crown Prince, it is usually my car that gets cranked up when we co-opt to travel together. Lets digress. And discuss taste. In choosing an automobile. That apply to our mobile lifestyle. And it was in December of last year when we treated ourselves to new rides. Separate ones. They say opposites attract. Like sloe gin and fast women. In my thinking Id have to doctor that thinking. In applying the saying to Deb and my ownself. I admit my metabolism considers it mandatory to having a drinkee at times. But Doc is by no means fast. Especially in her thinking. Shes one to dissect a thought. A thinker, with answers. She thinks, then acts. However, Doc doesnt know beans about how to shop for a car. She has a tunnel vision when visiting a dealership. Doc is pedestrian and predictable. When it comes to wheels to steer. Shes settled into the same-oh, same-oh. Cause for over 20 years shes been sporting about in Mazda Miatas. Trading in every three to five years. And get this. Doc doesnt know how to drive an automatic. Has to be an umbrella six-speed manual. Now the Miata is going on 25 years in production and very little in body style has been altered since its introduction. Exterior- and interior-wise. Miata merely a carbon copy from year to year. I do not cotton to the Miata. But I cant complain. Because if Doc likes something, she stays with it. Thats to my advantage. Here sticking with me after some of the stunts and decisions Ive opted to employ through the years.

This is an edited transcription of an interview with state representative and candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller heard on The News from the Camphouse on KULM 98.3 FM. Brune: Representative Miller, we appreciate you being with us and if you win this election please dont forget about us when we ask for another interview. Miller: Oh Im your Huckleberry, Ill be looking to talk to yall dont worry about that. Brune: One of the key concerns in our listening area is water. In the case of the Colorado River, the rice farmers are looking at the third year that they wont be getting water. On top of the drought conditions, the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) is prescribing to raise the lake levels and increase the trigger amount before water may be turned loose for farmers. Of course there are several elements at play. One being, that if there is no rain there is no water. The other is that the population of Austin, and all of Texas, is exploding. Would you please address this issue? Miller: The Ag Commissioners number one emphasis in the future is going to be water. There are 26 million people in Texas. One of these days God is going to bless us with rain. But the biggest danger to farmers and ranchers is not the drought it is an overreaching federal government. They are almost out of control and theyre coming after our water. A couple of weeks ago the EPA, according to the Clean Waters Act, thumbed their noses at Congress and the Supreme Court and decided they were going to lay claim to all water wherever rainfall hits the ground. In 2006 the Supreme Court said that the EPA only has jurisdiction over water in rivers, streams, lakes and oceans. Now, the EPA proposed a new rule that lays claim to water anywhere it hits the ground. This includes ditches, streams, bayous, wetlands, where water is running down a cow trail, etc. That is encroaching on states rights. I have links on my website that take you to the EPA, and allows you to comment on their plans. We have a 90-day comment period where the public may voice their concerns directly to the EPA. Im encouraging farmers, ranchers, urban folks, and everyone concerned about our environment to please write your comments. We have to push back and water is a concern for everyone. Brune: In other interviews were careful about our terminology. Too often when we mention environmentalists the impression is that were talking about the greenies or the eco-terrorists. This instance allows us to perceive that landowners, the true stewards of the en-

vironment, as well as regular citizens may all consider themselves environmentalists. We are all concerned with conserving water, having water for crops, wildlife, and the towns and cities. We should also all agree that the folks closest to the source know how to manage it the best. Thats where we can come into agreement that local Groundwater Conservation Districts, our regional planners, and the infrastructure laid out by the state is the most efficient way to manage Texas water. The first item we must all recognize is that Texas, and utilizing state sovereignty, is the smartest way to manage our resources and in this case water. Miller: I absolutely believe that is true. I make my living in Stephenville, Texas. I have cattle, horses, and a tree farm. I have to be a good steward. I have to be a good environmentalist because were talking about my livelihood. There are too many leftists that want to shut down animal agriculture. They want to shut down oil and gas production. Theyve proposed 200 new species in Texas to be added to the Endangered Species list. Theyre trying to regulate any development from happening. If you have a place that is deemed as habitat for an Endangered Species, and you want to drill for oil or develop in some manner, they would make it so that you must provide an equal amount of ground for new habitat. Now, we must keep our eye on the BLM. There is an issue in Texas 10-times worse than what theyre doing in Nevada to the Bundy Ranch. The BLM is trying to confiscate 90,000 acres in Texas. The BLM is looking to move the boundary lines of Oklahoma and theyre not saying why. They want to take it off the tax role and the school districts and counties would suffer. Brune: How can the feds squeeze into the natural movement of a river? Miller: Theyre saying that if a boundary line moves south it becomes permanent. Theyre saying that if a boundary line moves north its not permanent. So, 30 years ago the BLM confiscated 140 acres from a rancher and now theyre extending that line 116 miles to the east. Theyre claiming everything north of that line even though the river is a mile away. And they will

Heaven is real but so is hell

I must begin by admitting that I am not one that goes to the movies. Im not suggesting that all movies are unacceptable; movies just do not appeal to me. I begin in this way simply to remind myself that I must not let my lack of interest in movies get in the way of this article. Occasionally a movie comes out with some connection to the Bible and the things of God. Many of them are hailed as a way to generate interest in Christianity. They are promoted as evangelistic tools or at least a way to break the ice with our non-Christian friends. I can only hope that they do some good; my fear is that they are generally overrated. Some contain gross errors as they deviate from Scripture. The latest among these movies is the story of a young boy that supposedly went to heaven. No, I dont think he went to heaven. Maybe in another article I will explain why I do not think so. In this article I want to spin off of the title of the movie in the opposite direction. Not only is heaven for real, but hell is for real. Many would like to ignore the reality of hell. Some suggest that the Biblical references to hell simply refer to the agonies experienced in this life. The argument is often made that God is too good and loving to send anyone to hell. Once we abandon the complete trustworthy nature of Scripture, we open ourselves up to any and every falsehood. We are left with the opinions of men when we jettison our confidence in Scripture. Lets be reminded that the Lord Jesus spoke often and very straightforwardly about the reality of hell. We must not claim to love and regard Christ and His teachings on love and mercy, while disregarding His teachings on the eternal judgment of God. Remember, God warns much because He loves much. I will simply quote directly from the words of Jesus

not compensate the rancher. Theyre just looking to confiscate. This is land that has been in farm and ranching families for more than 100 years. It is deeded land. Ive reached out to Governor Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott to represent these farmers and ranchers. You know that a single family has no chance fighting legal battles with the federal government. The feds would break them financially. So, Im asking our state attorney, Greg Abbott, to help these people. Brune: There are water issues throughout our state. Weve got folks on the coast whove sued the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority in an attempt to bring the feds into managing Texas water. Then there are concerns about the diminishing aquifer in the Texas Panhandle. Its a big job for the Ag Commissioner to stay on top of all these problems. Miller: Im all about local control. Ill fight tooth and nail to preserve the rule of capture. Everyone wants to come to Texas. I think the federal government could take some lessons from us.

Its been my nature to lean for something not so basic. I cotton to cars that present me with a driving experience in spades. So currently I enjoy the spring sun in a Mini Cooper S roadster convertible. A vehicle thats about as rare as a Yugo in Breslau. Docs Miata is a hardtop convertible. I take exception to hardtop convertibles. I do. I do. A convertible, if it is to be termed convertible, should be a ragtop. Mines a ragtop. So there. I feel her choice is mundane in looks and options. Perhaps rather than tuning her Sirius radio to a sedate symphony station she should consider installing a boom box thatd register 7.7 on the Richter Scale. Maybe that would get the little Miata a little more attention. The operative word for my little roadster, that I nicknamed Betty Boop, is character. Boy hidee, does it have character. It does. Not only does it have an Openometer to track the time the tops been down (over 35 hours so far), but it has a refrigerated glove box. So my Snickers wont melt. Ha, Ha. And yes, it has an automatic trans. In my book, Debs Miata is rated PG-14 while I have to give my Mini a NC-17 certification. I suspect some would suspect that the Doc and I are suspect. I mean here are two senior citizens sitting in His and Hers twoseaters and tooling around like a couple of teenagers. So what. Indulging in our travels through the years we have logged a kit and kaboodle of good times. In sharing our time in life and on the road we have followed one foolish thing after another. And I figure that love is just two foolish things after each other...down the road.

concerning hell: If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. (Matthew 5:29) And do not fear those that kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:41-42) So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:49-50) Then He will say to those on the left hand, Depart from Me you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew

25:41) When Jesus spoke of hell as a place of eternal punishment he used the Greek word gehenna. This comes from the Hebrew reference to the Valley of Hinnom. In earlier times this valley was a horrible place of pagan sacrifice. In time, the valley became the city dump outside of Jerusalem. It was constantly smoldering with every kind of filth and garbage imaginable. This was Jesus way of showing that hell is a horrible place of unending fire. Just as garbage is cast out, so the unbeliever will be cast into hell. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15) The Bible reveals hell as a place of unending suffering. Yet, God loves you and gives you opportunity to repent and come to trust your life to Jesus Christ. For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies, says the Lord God. Therefore turn and live. (Ezekiel 18:32) The Bible says, Jesus delivers us from the wrath to come. (I Thessalonians 1:10) How merciful and kind of God that He allowed you to read this article. Come to the Savior without delay. You are loved, and you are warned. By the way, I think a movie well done on the reality of hell may do more good than a movie about a young boys supposed trip to heaven. You think about it!

such as cans to collecting statewide, operating its own trucks and seven cranes. In the Matas case, they picked the right business in the right place at the right time, launching their business as more and more people began paying attention to the need to recycle, particularly expensive metals. The original 3.5-acre site is now strictly for receiving, with the bulk of processing done at the Industrial Park site. We had to open the site in the Industrial Park because we were running out of space here, Arturo said. We process all kinds of

metal iron, copper, brass, you name it. We separate it and sell it to other companies all over the state. He estimates A&S Recycling now processes some 5 million pounds of steel/iron per year and more than 6 million total pounds of metal. Weve started buying (metal scrap) statewide via the Internet, he added. Mata said the company is looking to eventually move its entire operation to the Industrial Park. The only reason we havent done that yet is because of the traffic at that (Church St./Sarah DeWitt) intersection, he said.

able to maintain this as an admission-free event, with free parking. Hundreds of reenactors arrive from across the state on Friday to set up their camps just like the Texians and Mexicans did back in 1836. On Saturday, visitors can wander freely among the Mexican and Texian camps of the reenactors to learn what the soldiers and their families were doing prior to the battle in 1836 as the reenactors become figures in history for the weekend. At 3 p.m., the official (and historically accurate!) re-enactment of the Battle of San Jacinto begins; it is the largest in southwest United States. For the Texans, their victory at San Jacinto led to Texas annexation into the United States, says Robert B. Hixon, Chairman of the Board, San Jacinto Museum. In the end, the United States would gain not only Texas but also the lands which now make up the states of New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, and Utah, including parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Oklahoma. Nearly one million square miles of territory changed sovereignty. Because of the victory at San Jacinto, the United States became a bicoastal nation obtaining the natural resources needed to add to its powerful political and military presence in the world. Few battles in world history have been more decisive or had a greater influence on subsequent history. The San Jacinto Monument is open all day, as it is nearly every day of the year.

Thursday, April 24, 2014

There may be Bake and Rummage sales in town but you need to come to Belmont. Fundraiser/Rummage/ Bake/Plant/ Sale Next Saturday, April 26 From 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Because of our Rummage/Plant/Bake the regular Belmont Community Center Meeting was held Wednesday, instead of Tuesday, as members will be at the center receiving your donations for the rummage sale anyway. We hope that you have been saving your rummage for us. We will be open Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. to receive your donations. These are the words from the pen of Esther Moore. She would like to speak for everyone. We miss our best friend and leader, Doug Lott, who passed away recently. May God Bless His Family. I guess I will have to add that some people you just keep on missing. Doug Lott is one of them. Well anyway, we are going to attempt to tell you about whats been going on in Leesville and what is fixin to happen in Leesville. About this time every year since the early days Leesville started getting programs, music, quilts, food canned preserves, and so forth ready to share and enjoy with all the folks in and around the community who were either born there or may have just recently moved to the area. The first event is called May Day, May 4th. Each person brings a dish big enough to feed their family and a little more. The cemetery meeting starts at 9:45 am with President Paul Oncken conducting the meeting. At 11 am the Annual Memorial Service will begin. Terry Davis will be in charge of the music. Terry Davis has been blessed with a gift and a talent of music. There will be some members of the Ward family that have agreed to sing some of the oldies that the John Will Ward family sang years ago. You know Mr. John Will could give you a mean hair cut in his day and time. This is really good music. If possible, we hope that Nathan Gordon will have a few of his embellished whoppers to tell. Steve Martin will be the guest speaker. He attended school in Leesville, and is the son of Warner and LaVerne Martin. Nathan Gordon will close in prayer. Then we will all go to the pavilions to enjoy the delicious food and desserts brought by everyone. Tea, coffee, and water are furnished as well as plates, napkins, and utensils. After lunch there will be music inside the church for those inclined to do so. Please mark your calendars and keep in mind the Veterans Flag Raising Ceremony which will be held May 17th and the Leesville Fair which will be held later on in the fall on October 11. See you there! Also it is not too soon to talk about Mothers Day. None of us would be us without someone giving birth to us. Mothers Day falls on May 11th this year. We definitely need to honor our mothers. Hold the following people in prayer: Judy Wilson, Rhonda Pruett; Linda Denker; Case Martin; Landis Kern; Joe Kot-

We send our deepest sympathy to the family of Dennis Richter. I did not know Dennis that well but I knew his parents Ben and Mabel or maybe I should say that they knew me since I was a child. I have kept in touch with them all my adult life, and made a special acquaintance with their huge black Angus bull. Will and I send our prayers and love to his family, and especially Ben and Mabel. No parent ever wants to see their child go before them. Mr. Jimmy Kelley did too much dancing and is trying to recuperate a little over at Warm Springs in Luling. He isnt recovering very fast, so we need to give him a visit before the end of April. After that he might be strung up from a tree between here and Waco. You know Jimmy is pretty short so it doesnt take a very big tree. We love you Jimmy. You make them treat you right. They had the big Goss Reunion last Sunday. Seems like the Goss Family has populated planet earth very well and are still working on it. Glenn Goss was not at the reunion because he was having a great-grandson being born in New Orleans. Gene Robinson is looking mighty spry these days. Hello Gene. I got your messages. You just keep on sending them. Keep on drinking coffee, and eating burgers. Thanks a bunch and you take care of yourself. I think that must have had more at the Easter Sunrise service than they did at the regular service over at Monthalia. The quiche was delicious. In addition there were biscuits, gravy, sausage, jelly, etc. After getting up so early, it was good to have breakfast. Twerpt is over here sawing logs. She went on a twelve foot run and stumbled over her own front legs. It wore her out terribly, hurt her front toes, and got her out of breath. So she had to take a nap. I might have to join her. I didnt sleep at all last night. I think that is how that song goes. Have a good week. God Bless.

April 21, was a perfect spring day for a drive to the Old Schoolhouse in Cistern to enjoy a Saturn Friendship Club meeting. It was a bright sunny day with a gentle breeze. Stock ponds showed there had been rain. Pastures and trees were many shades of green. But only a few of the lovely wildflowers remained. The rest had probably gone to seed to assure another bountiful, beautiful display at the same time next year. Hostesses Betty Britsch and Nancy Littlefield welcomed members as they arrived. The meeting table looked as though spring had moved inside. It was covered with a soft pink cloth, runners of delicate little blossoms and lovely a few floral wreaths to create springlike decor. Colorful bags of Easter candies and a little magnet stating Friendship is a gift between hearts. marked each seat. Since Easter Sunday was just the day before, members were eager to tell how they had celebrated that blessed day. When fourteen members and one guest had arrived, president, Sue Kalinec gave a welcome and asked Nancy to say a blessing for the food. The springlike menu included Fruited Chicken Salad, Pasta Salad, a tray of fresh vegetables with dip, warm mini rosemary and cheddar muffins, drinks of choice and Pineapple Upside Cake as dessert. As the meal was being enjoyed, conversation continued about recent rainfall, winter like temperatures, spring gardens planted and other events taking place. When the meal was finished, the president called the meeting to order, everyone stood facing the flags of the United States and Texas and with hands over hearts recited the Pledge of Allegiance to each one. This was followed by the club prayer recited in unison and stating the motto, To make the best better. Before Nancy Littlefield gave the Devotional, she prayed for healing, comfort and strength for members unable to attend, former members and a members husband facing surgery. The devotional Resurrection was based on John 12:24, where Jesus tell us, I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. She spoke of the beautiful bluebonnets and how they were admired and appreciated in full bloom. However, as they fade and go to seed, they are not so pretty. She compared that to life. At times, life too is beautiful and joyful. At other times it is messy when it gets ugly. We know that the bluebonnets must fade, turn to seed, look messy and fall to the ground if we want to see them bloom again next year. Easter Week tells of Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem with the excitement and anticipation and how quick-

ly it changed to the awful events of Good Friday. Only to change again to the glory of the Easter resurrection. It shows how the beauty of life can come again and again to be celebrated . It can be celebrated because of the power of the resurrection and the promise of eternal life that God gives through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Nancy closed with a meaningful prayer thanking God for the beauty of the world and the promise of eternal life through the resurrection of Jesus. Mary Kelly introduced her guest Christine Seubert. Roll Call was answered by naming a favorite spring flower. Bluebonnets were named most often. Others included calla lilies, primroses, daisies, red blankets, bird of paradise, buttercups, Indian paintbrushes, red phlox, daffodils , hibiscus and roses. Secretary, Sandy Parr read the minutes from the March meeting and gave the treasurers report. Both were accepted as read. Jo Brunner reminded everyone of the April 26th Fund Raiser at the Fire Station in Muldoon for their Volunteer Fire Department. Birthday Lady for April, was recognized with song and a gift from her Secret Pal. Plans for the May Outing were finalized. Eva Boscamp reminded the group that this meeting date, April 21, 2014, marked the 178th anniversary of the day that Texas actually won Independence from Mexico at the Battle of San Jacinto. She then gave a brief summary of important dates of the Texas Revolution leading up to that battle. On March 2, 1836 the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed by 58 delegates at an assembly at Washington-on-the Brazos. March 6 began Santa Annas thirteen day siege known as the Battle of the Alamo. It resulted in defeat of the defenders and the death of William B. Travis, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and between 190-250 Texians and Tejanos. March 11 found General Sam Houston and his troops in Gonzales, on their way to help defend the Alamo. There they learned of that tragic failure. Houston then began his march from Gonzales toward Louisiana and the safety of the United States. He and his men were now running from the Mexican army and running out of time. En route they learned of the Goliad Massacre on March 27 resulting in the death of James Fannin and nearly 400 Texians being executed by order of Santa Anna. What happened next is known as the Eighteen Minutes that Changed the World. Following the Fall of the Alamo, General Sam Houston immediately understood that his small army was not prepared to fight Santa Anna out in the open, The Texians could not easily defeat the experienced and feared Mexican cavalry. Seeing that his only choice was to keep the army together to

be able to fight on favorable grounds, Houston ordered a retreat towards the United States. On April 17th, they came to a fork in the road. One road led to Louisiana and possible refuge in the United States. The other led to Harrisburg on the edge of the coast. The Texian army took the road to Harrisburg. During this Runaway Scrape, Santa Anna was unaware of where Houston and his army were. They were actually camped in the woods along the Brazos only 15 miles above the main Mexican forces , who were camped at San Felipe. On the 19th, Houston moved his troops to just outside of Harrisburg. His men were ready to fight. The Texians remained undiscovered allowing the number of Texian volunteers to increase in number and be trained in military discipline. Just miles away from Houstons men, Santa Annas forces now numbered around 1,200. The Texians were about 900. On the morning of April 21st, General Houston held a council of war. The majority of his officers voted to await Santa Annas attack in order to leverage their position. Houston let each man in the council plead his case. Then, he made a decision which he kept to himself until that afternoon. Houstons plan was to surprise the Mexican army. At about 4 p.m. he ordered his troops to advance toward the Mexican camp. They were hidden by the crest of a hill between the two camps. It took the Texians about 30 minutes to travel the distance to within 100 yards of the Mexican front lines. Santa Anna had been overconfident with victory from the siege of the Alamo, and had failed to post sentries to monitor the Texians activities. When the shooting began, around 4:30 p.m., the Mexican soldiers awoke from their afternoon siestas to the smell of gunpowder and cries of vengeance. Remember the Alamo and Remember Goliad. Once the Texians attacked the camp, it took only eighteen minutes to take control of the Mexiican Army, although the battle continued until dark. General Houston and his officers tried to stop the killing but the enraged Texian soldiers sought revenge for the slaughter at the Alamo and at Goliad. Houstons Texian army killed or captured all of Santa Annas men who heavily outnumbered them; Over 600 Mexican soldiers were killed while more than 700 were al-

lowed to surrender. Only nine Texians lost their lives in the battle. Sam Houston had two horses shot out from under him and he was shot in the ankle. Santa Anna was found the next day hiding in the swampy grass dressed as a common foot soldier. He was brought before Houston. There he agreed to end the campaign and he signed two treaties, agreed to a prisoner exchange and made a promise to never fight the Texians again. This decisive battle resulted in Texass independence from Mexico. This quote is inscribed on the exterior base of the San Jacinto Monument, Measured by its results, San Jacinto was one of the decisive battles of the world . The freedom of Texas from Mexico lead to annexation and to the Mexican War, resulting in the acquisition by the United States of the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Utah, and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Oklahoma. Almost one-third of the present area of the American nation, nearly a million square miles of territory, changed sovereignty. Eva told of how the land where the battle had been fought was purchased by the state of Texas in the 1890s and how plans took shape to build a memorial to honor all those who fought to win the Independence of Texas. During the year long Texas Centennial Celebration in 1936, groundbreaking for the San Jacinto Monument and Museum took place on April 21. Three years later it had been completed at the cost of $1.5 million. The monument was dedicated on April 21, 1939. At 567.31 feet it is the tallest masonry column in the world. It is more than 12 feet taller than the Washington Monument. It weighs approximately 70 million pounds. The four sided stone, steel and concrete star at the top weighs 220 tons. The monument is faced with Texas Cordova shell stone and is considered one of the finest examples of Modern Art Deco Architecture in the United States. The San Jacinto Monument and Historical Site is a symbol of Texas pride, sacrifice and honor for all the brave men who fought in the Texas Revolution. Plans for the May 19 Field Trip to Memorial Park on Monument Hill and Kreische Brewery State Historic Site in LaGrange with lunch at Sea Land were reviewed before the meeting adjourned. Eva Boscamp, Libby Hopkins, Barbara Vinson and Vivian Benton won the door prizes.

The Smithville Tigers used a five-run, top-of-theseventh to pull away from the Gonzales Apaches, 13-6, Tuesday night at T.E. Burrows Field in the regular-season finale for both squads.

Have Fun Michael Meeh II

Love, Mommy, Daddy, Journie, Kylee, family & friends

Family is why we do it all.

We all feel the same commitment to care for our families. Helping you meet your insurance needs is part of my commitment to you.

He Is Just a Little Boy

By Chaplain Bob Fox He stands at the plate with his heart pounding fast. The bases are loaded, the die has been cast. Mom and Dad cannot help him, he stands all alone. A hit at this moment would send his team home. The ball meets the plate, he swings and he misses. Theres a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses. A thoughtless voice cries, Strike out the bum. Tears fill his eyes, the games no longer fun. So open up your heart and give him a break, for its moments like this, a man you can make. Please keep this in mind when you hear someone forget, He is just a little boy, and not a man yet.

Good Luck


Have a fun & great season!
