Man with gun keeps police at bay

Heads Up

Says he heard voices, fired into backyard BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN In an incident that disrupted the daily lives of many nearby residents, a man with a gun kept police busy for most of Thursday, Jan. 23. In the end, Shaylor Alan Lambert, 40, of Azle, was arrested and charged with felon in possession of a firearm. At press time, Lambert remained in the Tarrant County jail in lieu of $15,000 bond. Azle police were called to a residence in the 600 block of West Columbia Drive around 7 that morning by a woman who said Lambert was “hearing voices” and had fi red one of two handguns he had been “messing with most of the night” out of the back door of the residence. The woman left the house after calling police. Knowing Lambert was now the only person inside the home, police established a safety perimeter. They attempted to communicate with Lambert via phone as well as by knocking on the door of the residence, but Lambert refused to answer the phone or the door. A check of Lambert’s criminal history revealed he was a convicted felon. While Azle police obtained a search warrant for the residence, they also sought assistance from the Parker County Special Operations Group. Police injected several canisters of a powder that behaves like tear gas into the residence, hoping the irritant would encourage Lambert to come out.

It did not. After numerous attempts to coax him out of the house all failed, Parker County SOG offi cers entered the house and forcefully removed Lambert, who was taken Shaylor Alan Lambert into custody without further incident. When the search warrant of the house was conducted, two handguns were recovered. Azle PD Cpl. Zach Hatton said situations such as this one can potentially be very dangerous and obviously requires ample time, care, and planning to bring about the safest possible conclusion. “We at the Azle Police Department would sincerely like to thank everyone who lives in this area for their patience during this incident. We had to block streets, disrupt the fl ow of your everyday lives, and cause an understandably curious concern for the sake of the public’s safety,” Hatton said. “However, despite the inconvenience, we found that the people who were affected most were so very gracious and understanding as we sought to bring this matter to a safe conclusion for everyone. It is our honor to serve you.”

Azle bank foils check forgery scam BY NATALIE GENTRY Horseshoer J.W. Heindricks had no idea that someone had gotten hold of his bank account information. “We were on our way to Fort Worth, and we went through the drive through (at the Bank of Azle) to make a deposit,” Heindricks said. That’s when teller Marlisa Godsey alerted Heindricks and his wife Vickie to an unusual occurrence on their account. “Marlisa said that they had just gotten a phone call from someone in

Florida checking on the funds in our account,” Heindricks continued. “The man said it was for repairs on an apartment he was fi xing that I was supposed to move into.” The Heindrickses have been with the Bank of Azle for a few years now and they said they feel like the people there know them well. “I’m there three or four times a week.” Heindricks said. “So when I heard this I called Darlene Luttrell, the branch manager, and she suggested that I put a hold on my account.”

The next morning when Heindricks went to the bank to reconcile his checkbook with Luttrell they found a check pending for $1,726 from Waco. “I told her that I hadn’t written any checks that large,” Heindricks continued. “So Darlene got a copy of the check and we could see that it was a fake.” The check number was much lower than the check the Heindrickses were using and the signature was an obvious forgery. But the most disturbing part was all

or if he is part of the scam.” “We’re so thankful the people at the bank know us well enough to see the red flags and I think it says something about hometown banks.” Protect yourself Frank Abagnale is a leading authority on how to combat forgery and has created fraud prevention programs used by more than 14,000 corporations, financial institutions and law enforcement agencies. According to Abagnale, there are five steps consumers can use to protect themselves from check fraud.

“Anyone who sees the front of that check has more than enough information to draft on a bank account,” Abagnale said. “I know people have to write checks sometimes – to pay credit card bills, to pay the mortgage – that’s fine, but a guy that comes up and sells something at your house – don’t write him a check, because gives him a tool.”

2. Be vigilant during tax time Tax season is another very popular time for check forgers because 90 percent of the people who file their taxes and owe money make the check payable to the IRS. “That’s what the IRS tells us to do,” Abagnale said. “Well, 1. Write checks sparingly fraudsters steal that check out Checks contain a bevy of of the mailbox, modify the paysensitive information including ee, and deposit it.” the customer’s name, address, phone number, account number 3.

Treat checkbooks like cash According to Abagnale, it is crucial to keep checkbooks safe. “Some people leave them in the glove box of their car,” Abagnale said. “Fraudsters are always looking in there for credit cards, gas cards, and people’s receipts with statements on them.” Abagnale explains that if a con man finds a checkbook he will take the last check from the book, so that by the time it is discovered, he has already used the information and is gone.

“It is very, very important – and I cannot overemphasize this – to make sure that people reconcile their checking account statements,” Abagnale said. “About 51 percent of Americans do not reconcile their bank statement, and banks love this because we have a law in the United States called Article 3, Section 406 of the Uniform Commercial Code that says you have 30 days from receipt of your statement to notify the bank of any discrepancies that may appear on your statement.” If a person doesn’t do that, 5.

UIL realignment arrives Feb. 3 Work begins on hospital entrance The face of Texas Health Harris Methodist Azle is changing, literally. Renovations to create an enclosed vestibule that will provide weather-protected entry and exit at the hospital have begun. The completed project will feature an extended covered walkway from the current roof line of the hospital to the street.

That would be the biennial University Interscholastic League’s realignment. When the UIL cuts up the state into regions and districts, how things fall can end up being expensive for some school districts. This realignment is unique in one regard: Schools already know the number cut-offs that divide classifications – even in this year where for the first time 6A will be introduced. The change of classifications will affect every division – sixman will now be 1A, 1A becomes 2A, etc. With this knowledge and Azle’s submitted enrollment numbers, AHS will become a 5A school.

During this time, the front entrance of the hospital will be closed to traffic. The hospital cafeteria will

serve as the alternate entrance for outpatient registration and the Emergency Department entrance for inpatient visitors. Way-finding signage and employees will be visible to help guide all patients and visitors. “We are deeply committed to providing exceptional care for the people of our community,” said Bob Ellzey, FACHE, hospital president. “This is just another step in helping us achieve that goal.” Ellzey added that while he and his staff acknowledge and apologize for the temporary inconvenience the improvements will cause patients and visitors, these changes will ultimately enhance patients’ experience.

Rockwall new venue for Williams murder trial by CArLA nOAH STuTSmAn A judge ruled on Friday, Jan. 24 that the capital murder trial of an Azle High School graduate will be moved to Rockwall. Eric Lyle Williams, 46, is accused of three murders that occurred in Kaufman, where he had been removed from his office as Justice of the Peace after being convicted of stealing three county computers. Dallas County District Judge Michael Snipes, appointed to the case after a Kaufman judge recused himself, granted the motion filed by Williams’ attorney.

The motion was based on the defense team’s belief Williams cannot receive a fair trial in Kaufman due to extensive media coverage of the events leading to his prosecution. Williams and his wife, Kim, are accused of gunning down Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse outside the Kaufman County courthouse on Jan. 31, 2013 as well as District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, at their home over Easter weekend in 2013. Prosecutors believe the mur-

ders were committed in retaliation for the District Attorney’s office’s prosecution of Williams for theft. Both Eric and Kim Williams remain in the Kaufman County jail in lieu of $23 and $10 million bond, respectively. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Eric Williams but have not yet announced whether they will seek that penalty against Kim Williams, as well. Kim Williams filed for a divorce from Eric Williams the same day she was indicted for the crime.

Mission House blesses 486 angels

Ribbon Cutting

First Baptist Church of Castle Hills held a Wild Child Cycle and Toy Run and luncheon Dec. 14 and 36 riders responded to participate. Proceeds benefited the

church’s Mission House. On Dec. 21, the church distributed gifts to 486 angels from its Angel Tree program and also held a bicycle giveaway. Church representatives said

they appreciate the support of the community, businesses who hosted trees, Wild Child Cycles, and Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) for adding to the event’s success.

The Azle Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for Above All Things Antiques, located at 1653 Southeast Parkway Jan. 16. Joan Hook and Jennifer Lalonde have a variety of home decor, resale items and antiques to choose from. They are also open for bookings as a music venue and party room. Check out all their beautifully remodeled store has to offer today.

serious about your wellness

At Gym X, James Cooper has a passion: health and fitness. For 27 years, he has pursued holistic well-being not only for himself but others. His education is based in kinesiology – the study of human movement with an emphasis in rehabilitation. With his years and years of practical experience, he trains and treats clients’ physical needs and issues, both physiologically and biomechanically to each’s greatest potential. Cooper is certainly not a “rep counter,” one who simply watches a client push weights around. He and the pros at Gym X offer clients rapt attention to detail and exceptional customer service. Why hire a personal trainer? Cooper gives his 10 reasons: 1. Motivation. A trainer will prove the encouragement you need and take you to levels in your workout that you never would have gone alone. 2. Individual instruction. A trainer will design a workout program that is specific to a client’s needs and goals. 3. Consistency. Work smarter, not harder. Intensity, time, and sticking to the program are all keys to achieving goals. 4. Efficient workouts. Make the best use of time by making every minute count

with workouts that keep moving in the right direction. 5. Safety. Learning how equipment works and using correct form to avoid unnecessary injury. 6. Supervision. A trainer provides great support for spotting correct form and informative feedback on progress. 7. Special needs. Clients with specific health issues require special assistance and guidelines in starting and maintaining a wellness program. 8. Rehabilitation. An educated trainer assists with safe return from injury and provides specific exercises to strengthen body to protect from further injury. 9. Sport specific/event specific. S.A.I.D. (Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands) principles. This allows a client to achieve specified goals within their time line. 10. Results. Clients working with trainers not only see results but see those results faster and maintain them longer. If you want to succeed with your health and fitness goals, Cooper is the man who can get you there. Visit him on Facebook at Cooper bootcamp or call 817-401-2638. Or stop by Gym X at 11855 Highway 730 South – the first step in becoming the you that you want to become.

Please feel free to contribute to Me Day

D

id you know there is a Reagan Day? And a Jefferson-Jackson Day? Me either. But they’re out there. In fact, a Reagan Day hoohah is right around the corner and you can attend if you have $100 in your cupboard’s Mason jar where you throw your loose change. Or you can bring some pals for $2,000. Reagan and Jefferson-Jackson Days are, respectively, the Republican and Democratic Parties biggest fundraisers annually. Naming money gathering gatherings after former popular presidents sounds much better than Biggest Fundraiser Gathering, I gather. An invitation to the Parker County Republican Party Reagan Day Dinner 2014 arrived. And the guest of honor

is none other than media personality Glenn Beck. When I first heard Beck on the radio years ago, he was very funny. Since all other conservative talkers were just the same ol’, same ol’, Beck caught my ear. I remember him doing a hilarious parody of PBS’ oh-so-serious (just ask ‘em) Frontline. But then...Beck got a little scary. Things began popping up on air like buying your food and toilet paper in bulk so you’d have it when the Democrats/socialists take over – oh, they’re comin’! – and buying gold coins and ammunition and burying it all in your backyard in PVC pipe so you’d have some currency and firepower when the government comes for you! Oh, they’re comin’! Kudos to Beck for pulling a David Bowie, however. Like the former glam

rocker who saw the future of the Internet and how it would affect music (Bowie was one of the first artists to understand what cyberspace could do a musician ON YOUR for and embrace MARK it), Beck left a TV Mark K. Campbell successful show and put it online as a subscription service. And The Blaze is a gigantic hit at $9.99 monthly or $99.95 per year. And it’s The Blaze’s followers who will be the folks ponying up $2,000 at Weatherford’s Parker County Sher-

iff’s Posse Feb. 1 when Beck arrives. The $2,000 gets you a table for 8, a Reagan Council membership for the host couple, and an invite for the entire octet to the VIP reception. A $100 bill will get you into the dinner and a “general reception.” Beck might still be inventive and funny, but I’ve moved on to two other guys. One is Michael Savage who might be the angriest, most unhappy human on the planet. His radio show is mind boggling. (The Savage Nation, is aural crack – I can’t stop listening!) Savage hates everything! He’s on WBAP 820 AM from 2-4 p.m. You won’t believe the outrageous claims you’ll hear. There’s a reason Beck instead of Savage was invited to Parker County’s shindig – the Posse Grounds would collapse under Savage’s verbosity.

The other good listen right now is Dennis Miller. Like every talk show host, he’s a conservative (notice how liberals dominate most media yet can’t crack radio?), but the former Saturday Night Live guy is truly funny. His offbeat humor appeals to me, even if there’s an aura of superiority to his sometimes obscure references. He’s on from noon to 3 on KLIF 570 AM. I might consider snatching some coins from the Mason jar for Miller. While it’s tough enough to keep up with tithes and American Express, he’s got something worth paying for. Currently, there is no fundraising event called Mark Campbell Day. But if your Mason jar is overflowing, I’d be happy to bury some coins in my backyard. However, I’m OK on T.P. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and still listens to The Ticket a lot, too.

Western pioneers come in many forms, occupations

M

y excitement for Western history usually is directed toward the 19th century with its cattle drives, gold rushes, cavalry, Indians and wagon trains plodding the well-worn trails. Of course, history is anything that happened even a short time ago. Consequently, in my travels in the western part of the U.S. I often learn about modern “pioneers.” Last summer I encountered the work of such a person while walking across a pedestrian bridge near Tacoma, Wash. and stopping to pose for a photograph with my nephew. Set all across the bridge were cases of glasswork by an artist named Dale Chihuly. Chihuly's career over the last four decades and more has elevated the 2000-year-old effort of glassblowing to a highly accepted art form. An auto accident in 1976 blinded him in one eye and distorted his perception when glassblowing. As a re-

for public acceptance than recognition from the art world. However, he achieved both. By the 1990s his pieces were acquired by an increasing number of museums worldwide. He also wanted his work to be seen in public buildings, botanical gardens and hotels. “If it gives people pleasure, if it makes them feel good, that's what counts,” he said. In 1996 he worked with Italian glass artists and saw the hanging of 14 of his own chandeliers around Venice. Chihuly was fortunate in having a one-man exhibition at the Louvre in Paris, an accomplishment few artists achieve. More museums, hotels, gardens and private collectors became anxious to acquire a “Chihuly” work. One of his chandeliers for a private home sold for $200,000. In 2002 the “Bridge of Glass” featuring his works (that I walked across last summer) opened with his Museum of Glass in Tacoma. He created a ceiling sculpture of over 2,000 hand blown floral shapes for the lobby of

the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas and showed a “Light of Jerusalem” project in Israel. In 2010 the St. Petersburg Modern Art Center in Florida opened a permanent collection of Chihuly's glass art. Over 200 museums in 30 states, England, Canada, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait exhibit his work. Galleries sell his glass, and his sales reach into many millions. Chihuly has been awarded twelve honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. Yes, Dale Chihuly is a vastly different pioneer from the kind I usually write about, but in his studio in the “Western” state of Washington, he created a success that has made his name famous worldwide. I can think of a couple of other Westerners and Washingtonians who have done the same: Bill Gates and William Boeing.

Perry policy goes to pot at international forum

W

ith the end of his longevity record of 14 years as governor less than a year away, Rick Perry took part in policy discussions at the 2014 World Economic Forum Jan. 21-25 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. Perry was the only U.S. state governor to attend the forum, the governor’s office said. Besides his headline-grabbing words suggesting a softer approach through drug courts on state marijuana laws, Perry said Texas is the place to be for companies seeking a businessfriendly environment. On Jan. 23, during the forum’s widely publicized panel discussion on drug policy, Perry said, “I’m probably the only person who is going to be an anti-legalization person on the stage tonight.” But, in the context of Tenth Amendment/ state sovereignty, Perry added, “As the governor of the second-largest state in the country, what I can do is start us on poli-

cies that can start us on the road towards decriminalization.” Also on Jan. 23, while Perry was beyond Texas borders, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, as acting governor, proclaimed a liquefied petroleum gas emergency. Texas, as a leading producer of the fuel, intends to help alleviate shortages in other states hit by extreme winter weather, Dewhurst proclaimed. Pursuant to the proclamation, the state of Texas temporarily waived its state licensing, permitting and certification requirements for LPG trucks and operators that meet federal requirements and those of any other state whose governor has declared an LPG emergency. Such states include: Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont and Wisconsin. Campaign reports come in Candidates' semiannual campaign finance reports were filed with the Texas Ethics Commission on Jan. 15. Republican

Campaign donations of $50 or more must be reported, are public information, and can be looked up via the Texas Ethics Commission’s website, ethics. state.tx.us. Abbott, the current attorney general of Texas, and Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, are considered frontrunners in races to be their respective parties' nominees for governor in the March 4 primary election.

Early voting in that election begins Feb. 18 and ends on Feb. 28. Of many issues that Abbott and Davis have tangled over so far in the campaign, the one that seems to get the most attention is abortion. Davis favors a woman’s right to choose and Abbott is anti-abortion. 3 species will be studied State Comptroller Susan Combs on Jan. 23 announced plans to support research by state-funded universities on three animal species: freshwater mussels (12 varieties); the spot-tailed earless lizard; and the massasauga, a desert-dwelling, venomous pit viper. “This will help ensure the best science is available when determining if a species should be listed (as endangered or protected under the federal Endangered Species Act) thereby bringing more scientific rigor to the process,” Combs said. Ranges of those species “potentially cover 190 of the 254 Texas counties and the economies in these counties contrib-

Ladies returning to hoops playoffs for 1st time since 2005 By MArk k. CAMPBELL It’s been a while since a Lady Hornet basketball team reached the playoffs – 2005, in fact. But that’s where the 201314 Azle (19-9, 7-4) squad is headed. After giving Denton Guyer a scare, AHS took care of business and completed a sweep of Wichita Falls at the AHS gym Jan. 24 to lock up the postseason berth. And coach Mitzi Marquart hopes Azle can move up the standings into third before the season ends on Feb. 4. At Denton Jan. 21, the Lady Hornets jumped ahead early, leading 14-7 after one period then 23-16 at the half against Guyer which has just two 5-4A losses. However, the hosts finally won, 47-44. Payton Berger’s 14 points paced Azle. Kaycie Dunkerley was next with 13 points followed by Valarie Matlock with 8, Morgan Prentice with 6, and Emelia Miller with 2 points. With a 59-44 thumping of visiting Wichita Falls three days later, Azle gave itself a three-game lead over the Lady Coyotes with three contests left in district play.

Azle advances 15 to regional wrestling tourney Four Lady Hornets are district champs By MArk k. CAMPBELL Once again, a slew of Azle athletes will advance to the regional wrestling tournament. And, thanks to being in Region 2, AHS’ 15 placers won’t have to travel all the way out west to El Paso but just hop over to Frisco Heritage High School. At the district 5-4A tourney Jan. 25, the Lady Hornet squad – limited to a mere five competitors after an injury and some disciplinary action – still managed to finish second overall. Four of Azle’s girls were golden, including reigning state champion Jesse Grubbs. In Austin last year, she won the title at 215 pounds; this season,

playoff berths. The girls (5-2-1) ended the preseason slate with a 7-0 loss against state-ranked Birdville (No. 9). Coach Trent Davis said the Lady Hawks were good, but his squad was three starters shy. The Lady Hornets only losses have been to ranked squads, the coach said. “So, we are off to a good start in what was a difficult pre-district schedule,” he said. “Our goal is to win the first-ever district championship for girls soccer.” The district opener – against Aledo – was scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 28 but moved to the 29th due to weather.

Swim relay squads move on 4 boys also advancing to regional

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Hoops Hornets tumble twice The tough Hornet basketball season continued as Azle continued to seek its first 5-4A victory. A trip to Denton Guyer was rough as AHS struggled to score. The Hornets lost, 80-26. Cooper Rush led Azle in scoring with 6 points. Luke Davis and Malachi Slick added 5 points apiece while Colton Bagwell and Jesse Salisbury netted 3 each. Back home Jan. 24, AHS bolted out to a lead over visiting Wichita Falls. The Hornets led 12-8 after the first period. But Old High pulled even then went on to win 53-37.

By MARk k. CAMpBELL Two more Azle swimmers qualified for the regional meet this year than last, coach Steve Griffin said. At the Denton ISD natatorium Jan. 25, every relay team earned berths at the regional event in Mansfield Feb. 7-8 while four boys will advance in individual events. In addition, Griffin noted, a slew of AHS swimmers set personal bests. The four Hornets moving on: • Alex Bridge – 100 butterfly • Ryan Lloyd – 200 freestyle • Chris Caney – 100 medley • T.J. Savage – 50 freestyle All six relay teams will compete at the regional event. The girls squads include the 200 medley relay of Isabella Winchester, Kylie Lucas, Makayla Almeida, and Rachel Toy. The girls 200 freestyle team of Elvia Bazan, Lucas, Abigail Kortokrax, and Sarah Hall moves on as the 400 free squad of Bazan, Kortokrax, Almeida, and Hall. For the boys, the 200 medley team is made up of Dylan Heath, Jacob Hooper, Caney, and Dawson Stephens. The 200 and 400 units are comprised of the same foursome: Jordan Gill, Bridge, Lloyd, and Savage. In team results, the AHS boys took fourth; last season, the Hornet Justin Scarbro (top) competes in the championship match in Trophy Club. He Hornets were sixth. Photo by Mark K.

second leading scorer with 7 points. Salisbury got 6 points while Jason Templeton and Salisbury tallied 5 each. Rounding out the Hornet scoring were Brandon Martinez and Cooper with 2 points each. Bagwell and Martinez led Azle with 4 steals apiece and Davis blocked 2 shots. The Guyer contest marked the start of the second round of district play. Three of AHS’ final five games are on the road – at Brewer (Jan. 28 [results not available at press time]), Wichita Falls Rider (Jan. 31), and state-ranked Byron Nelson (Feb. 7). Senior Night is Feb. 11, the season finale against Nelson.

Grubbs is wrestling at 185. On the boys side, 10 of AHS’ 13 Hornets advance, too. Also winning district titles at Byron Nelson High School’s gym were Ruby Ariosa (95 pound class), Bernie Duhan (110), and Lauren Gilbert (128). Ashley Taylor (119) finished second. Four Hornets reached the championship bout in their weights but all finished as runners-up. That quartet: Skylar Russell (120); Hayden Buchanan (132); Marshall Gilbreath (182); and Justin Scarbro (heavyweight). Four other Azle wrestlers claimed bronzes with third

place efforts. Finishing there were Jimmy Fager (113); Shawn Mackey (138); Colten Clearwater (145); and Gabe Davidson (220). A top four finish earned competitors regional berths on Feb. 1. Just missing was Dylan Dale (152). He finished fourth but lost a “wrestle back” challenge. Also competing for Azle were Jacob Moutray (170) and Tyler Henson (195). The Hornets had no representative at 106 pounds. Qualifying for the state tournament – this year in Garland for the first time – is tougher, requiring a top two finish at regional. The state event is set for Feb. 14-15.

Basketball subvarsities battle Denton Guyer, Wichita Falls The Azle High School basketball subvarsities faced Denton Guyer and Wichita Falls in district play. The boys JV defeated Wichita Falls 46-42. The AHS JV trailed 33-30 entering the final quarter then out-scored the visitors 16-9 to

snatch away the victory. Aric Brazell turned in an exceptional game with 21 points. Kaleb Patrick added 10. Coaches lauded the defensive effort of Chad Pence. The boys 9th put big points on the board but lost to their Old High counterparts, 71-60.

“We lost a hard-fought battle,” coaches noted. “Our team is improving and playing with great effort.” Ricky Aregullin paced the frosh with 18 points. Also scoring were Chace Blackburn with 15, Clayton Long with 8, and Seth Ortega with 5 points.

Shining defensively were Devon Sorrentino, Carson Martinez, and Ortega, coaches recalled. The JV girls split 5-4A contest, losing to Guyer and beating Wichita Falls. In a 46-29 loss at Guyer, Kylee Browne led AHS in scor-

ing with 10 points in a game Azle led 11-6 after one quarter. Lauren Thomas netted 5 points and Sami Tittle got 4. Against Old High, a 20-6 second quarter by the young Lady Hornets propelled AHS to a 38-35 win. Kailey Read’s 14 points was

tops for the home team. Nicole Aniasco scored 10 and Browne got 6 in the victory. The girls season is winding down with games left against Brewer (Jan. 28, results not available at press time), at Wichita Falls Rider (Jan. 31), and home versus Denton (Feb. 4).

Forte Junior HigH Girls basketball Forte squared off against Lake Worth. The 8th A won, 29-20.

Movie Man

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Frankenstein’s monster movie lacks electricity Ah, Frankenstein’s monster! That wonderful creature from the Movie Man’s youth has been through hundreds of fi lm incarnations. Some were cool and some really bad. This latest attempt, I, Frankenstein, is one of the lesser efforts, sadly. About the film The Movie Man will admit that he’ll cut some ratings slack to monster movies. While the campy Godzilla remake of 1994 was weak (Movie Man No. 235, a 4 [however, a new, much more serious version of the giant Japanese monster arrives May 16 and it boasts a fantastic trailer]), he was generous to the new King Kong that Peter Jackson made in 2005 (MM #644, 8). Where the Movie Man differed from many when it comes to relatively recent monster movies actually concerns a Frankenstein film. Like Francis Ford Coppola’s daring version of Dracula in 1992 – the Movie Man column was born in 1993, but he would’ve been impressed by this very adult version (8) – the Frankenstein movie made in 1994 came loaded with potential. Almost twenty years ago, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein starred such luminaries as Robert De Niro as the creature and Kenneth Branagh as the mad Doctor Frankenstein. (Recall that the man is Frankenstein, not the monster.) Branagh also directed and offbeat actors like Tom Hulce, Helena Bonham Carter, and even Monty Python member John Cleese appeared. Lauded for being a much truer adaptation than prior historical Frankenstein releases (hence, author Mary Shelley’s name in the title), MSF was not embraced when released in America in November 1994. At $22 million, it took in less than half of its $45 million budget. (And it came out in thou-

For the birds! Godbey steps out of comfort zone into a whole new world by carla noah stutsman Carol Godbey has always lived a full life – in addition to running the popular restaurant and catering company begun by her father, Vance, when she was a toddler, she works out five days a week and is an avid SCUBA diver, snow skier and motorcycle rider who’s enjoyed the privilege of traveling the world. She has two grown children she’s very proud of, a large extended family and many friends. But there’s something she’s always wanted to do, something that has eluded her until now. She wants to hear the birds sing.

“My right ear is smaller than my left ear, and there was no canal in my right ear – it was solid bone,” she explained. “I learned to read lips because it helped me understand what people were saying. But that only works if you’re looking at the person talking.” With a 65 percent loss in her left ear and 50 percent in her right ear, Godbey had one of the worst kinds of handicap – the kind no one can see. Her particular impairment is rare, and only a few very specialized doctors across the nation are able to treat it. Otherwise healthy and active, there were no outward signs she was different from anyone else. By the time she reached high school, Carol says she knows Born this way Godbey was born with sig- some of her classmates thought she was snobbish. nificant hearing loss.

“In a conversation with a group of people, I could only hear the person to my left, and I could read the lips of the person facing me,” she said. “If you were on my right or behind me, I never knew you were talking to me.” She’s sure many of her classmates thought she was ignoring them when they spoke to her, but in fact, she simply never heard them.

Another chance When she was 19 years old, Godbey’s mother, Imogene, read about astronaut Alan Shepard having surgery in Los Angeles to correct a problem that almost grounded him. The Godbeys had already taken their daughter to see nearly every ear specialist in the Fort Worth area. They all said there was nothing to be done for her. “That was before the Internet, but mother did her research, and she called Dr. Crabtree in LA and made an appointment,” Godbey said. “Mother, Daddy and I flew out to LA, and Dr. Crabtree examined me and said he was sure he could help.” He drilled through the bone to create an ear canal and built an ear drum in Godbey’s right ear and then fitted her with a hearing aid for her left ear. Because her right ear was so small, it would not support a hearing aid, but the new canal and ear drum helped. Godbey’s hearing improved about 35 percent as a result of Dr. Crabtree’s surgery. Still, she struggled to hear. “But I got along just fine, Godbey says. “I never let it stop me.” And, yet, over the years, the cochlear baha® system utilizes the body’s natural she found a “comfort zone” in ability to conduct sound. which she sometimes didn’t

try as hard to hear what people were saying, believing she would not hear them even if she tried. Out of the zone Godbey was on a dive trip in 2012 when she discovered she had a sinus infection that kept her out of the water. Bored and alone – her friends were all diving – she decided to get on the Internet and look for a new ear doctor since hers had recently retired. “I was just looking for a doctor for my regular checkups and someone to clear my ears for diving,” Godbey explained. “Suddenly, I wondered if Dr. Crabtree was still around, so I did some checking. I found Dr. Fred Owens, who had actually worked with Dr. Crabtree, and you won’t believe it, but he has offices in Dallas and Fort Worth.” Godbey felt that if Owens was familiar with Dr. Crabtree’s work, and with today’s technology, he could help her. She made an appointment, and Owens, after examining her and running a battery of tests, suggested the Cochlear Baha® System. Godbey has moderate to profound conductive hearing loss in her right ear and severe to profound mixed hearing loss in her left ear. The mixed hearing loss is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. From the website www.cochlear.com: “Designed to help people with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss and singlesided deafness, the Cochlear Baha® System utilizes the body’s natural ability to conduct sound. By connecting to the bone behind the ear, the

It’s early for bird watching, but carol Godbey is already spending time outside, listening. Just before this photo was snapped, she pointed toward the “caw, caw” of an unseen crow and said “it must be in those trees!” Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

Baha System bypasses the damaged outer or middle ear and sends sound directly to the healthy inner ear, where sound comes to life.” Godbey was excited at the idea of hearing more normally, but almost backed out three days before a surgical procedure that involved drilling holes through her skull just behind each ear and placing titanium screws into the holes. “But I knew I needed to do something for myself, to help me hear, and I reminded myself that Dr. Crabtree had drilled through the bone in my ear in order to build an ear canal,” Godbey said. “I knew I had to step out of my comfort zone.” Eight weeks after surgery performed by Dr. Fred Owens’ son, Robert, when the surgery site was well healed and the holidays were over, Godbey learned how to snap two small hearing aids onto the titanium screws that are now permanent fixtures behind her ears. The Baha system – Godbey

calls her new hearing aids her “love connections” – do have a few minor drawbacks. “Well, you can’t roll your hair with them on, and you can’t just pull your shirt off over your head,” she said. “I’ve found out you can’t lie down on the couch and watch TV because the pillows push on them, and you can’t wear a helmet – so I take these off and wear my ‘old’ one when I need to do something like that.” But the inconveniences are a small price to pay for the benefits of her new gadgets. Generally a happy person anyway, Godbey says now she just can’t stop smiling and even laughing. “I’m having a blast with these things, I want you to know,” she laughed. “It’s like nothing can steal my joy – I’m just overjoyed!” Whaddya hear? Godbey says she now hears

Godbey steps into a new world ■ GODBEY, FROM PAGE 1B

the little things that most people take for granted – and that make life so much more enjoyable. “I can be involved in group conversations now, and I don’t have to ask people to repeat themselves,” she says. “I can understand the words to songs. I can tell what direction a sound is coming from. I can hear someone talking if they are behind me or to my right.” Those were the things she had hoped she’d hear. But there have been some surprises along the way. Godbey and her friend Sally, with whom she has worked out fi ve days a week for some 15 years, headed for the treadmills the other day and Godbey commented that she never realized it made a beeping sound when the speed was adjusted. “Oh, honey, I’m just so excited for you!” exclaimed Sally. “Then we were going up and down the stairs, like always, with these two other girls and having a conversation and, by golly, I was just right there with ‘em!” Godbey laughed. Before, Godbey said she would have tuned herself out, having trained herself that she wouldn’t be able to hear what the others were saying, anyway. Now she can hear the turn signal when she’s driving, as well as sirens when emergency vehicles approach. But one of the nicest things, she says, is to hear someone speak from behind her. “I was in Albertson’s this morning and I heard a lady say ‘what a nice coat, it looks so warm’,” Godbey related. “When I realized she was talking about my coat, I turned around and thanked her. That’s just who I am, but when I couldn’t hear what people said, I’m afraid they felt I was a snob.” Where from here? Godbey says her father was her biggest supporter, but was sometimes harder on her than her sisters. He was always quick to remind her that her hearing loss helped make her the person she is, and for that, she is grateful. “We talk about God... I want to know what my purpose is, and maybe I just found it,” Godbey contemplated. “Why am I here? Am I just supposed to feed people? Or is there something more?” “If telling my story helps just one person hear, then I’ll just keep telling my story,” she said. “It’s no different than my mother reading about Alan Shepard.” She’ll tell it at a meeting of an area Lions Club, and will make herself available to other groups with an interest. Of particular interest to many, she believes, will be the fact that her health insurance paid for her Baha System entirely. Hearing the birds sing When Godbey and her father needed to have a private conversation at the restaurant, they’d often walk over to a wall of windows, away from others, to talk. “There was this cardinal that would always fl y up, and he’d fl y into that window over and over again, as if he were trying to hear what we were talking about,” Godbey said. “If we were having a conversation in the car, I swear that cardinal would come up and sit on the car mirror,” Now, each time she sees a cardinal, she says “Hi, Dad!” She can’t wait for spring to come, when she can just sit outside and listen in on the birds’ conversations.
