Druxman pleads guilty to misdemeanor Counseling ordered by judge Moses Druxman, a former elected member of the Azle Independent School District’s Board of Trustees, pleaded guilty to a charge of indecent exposure Tuesday, Feb. 18 in a Tarrant County courtroom. Druxman, who resigned that position in January 2013, was charged with soliciting the sexual performance of a child, a third-degree felony, but pleaded guilty instead to the B misdemeanor charge. He was sentenced to two years’ deferred adjudication probation in exchange for his guilty plea, according to records obtained from the Tarrant County District Clerk’s Office. A spokesperson for the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office said Druxman must undergo counseling, among other conditions of his probation. If he completes the probation period without violation of the probation conditions, the offense will not listed as a conviction on Druxman’s criminal record.

Druxman was initially charged with online solicitation of a minor; but the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled on Oct. 30, 2013 that a portion of the 2005 statute that made sexually explicit online communication between an adult and minor illegal violates the First Amendment right to free speech. Tarrant County prosecutors dropped that charge but refiled the case against Druxman charging solicitation of the sexual performance of a child. Druxman was elected to public office just weeks before his May 2011 graduation from Azle High School, earning the distinction of being the youngest person ever elected to that board. He resigned his seat Jan. 8, 2013, citing time restraints related to his college schedule as well as a real estate career. But just a month later, on Feb. 9, 2013, Druxman turned himself in at the Tarrant County jail and posted $15,000 bond in response to warrants issued by the Azle Police Department.

Emergency personnel discuss how to get a vehicle out of its predicament while a crowd gathers around the vehicle’s two occupants, who were unharmed but a little shaken after this incident Thursday evening, Feb. 20. Mary Ann Stewart, 80, of Azle and Sandra Beadling, 67, both of Azle, had to have help from Azle firefighters getting out of the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander after a tight turn from North Stewart Street onto Jarvis Lane landed them in a deep culvert. A large tree saved them from fully overturning. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

Reno rejects all petitions, including de-annexation BY NATALIE GENTRY Every petition presented to the Reno City Council Feb. 24 was rejected due to lack of required information – date of birth and voter registration number. And in the case of a de-annexation petition, additional violations were discussed. Reno City Attorney Walter Leonard, addressed the crowd at Monday’s City Council meeting.

“At the last meeting I was given the job of reviewing and reporting on the various petitions which were filed by Mr. (Art) Johnson,” Leonard said. “One petition asked the Council to cease using Tarrant County for the collection of taxes, two of the petitions related to tax benefits essentially for seniors, and the last on called for de-annexation of what is essentially the western portion of the city.”

Leonard explained that in addition to reviewing the petitions himself, he also referred them for examination to the Texas Municipal League and the Office of the Secretary of State – essentially the State agency responsible for elections and petitions. “My analysis is based upon responses from them as well as my own PLEASE SEE RENO, PAGE 2A.

review,” Leonard said. “The other agencies have indicated they concur with my findings.” When analyzing the petitions Leonard, as well as the other attorneys to whom the petitions were referred, were required to look at the applicable state laws regarding de-annexation and elections. “Both Section 43.143 of the Local Government Code and Chapter 277 of the Election Code contain requirements for the petitions and must be considered together,” Leonard said. Provisions of Section 43.143 and Chapter 277 require various information to be included on a petition as part of the signature of any petitioner. While much of the requested information may be redundant or unnecessary, the Secretary of State’s Office and Leonard agree that the date of birth and the voter registration number seem to be affirmatively required. This information would ensure that all petitioners were, in fact, qualified voters and therefore valid petitioners. None of the petitions presented to the Council contain this information. Therefore, Leonard said, none of the petitions are valid for consideration.

ent event grand Tax collection Leonard explained that the first petition is one which wouldn’t require an election regardless of validity. “The decision to change tax collection entities was essentially a business decision made by the City Council some time ago based upon long experience with Parker County,” Leonard said. “The facts that Tarrant County provided a more prompt, efficient, and cost effective service and allowed people to make divided payments contributed to the decision.” Leonard suggested that the Council might want to check if

City Attorney Walter Leonard addressed the citizens of Reno at a Feb. 24 Council meeting regarding the petitions that were submitted to the Council last month.

“This petition seems to be based in what can only be characterized as misinformation, half-truths, and a remarkable failure to fully inform the voters of the consequences of a vote to de-annex,” he said. The various problems in the petition include the characterization of the city budget. “The size of the budget is grossly overstated because [the petition authors] didn’t understand that the figure also includes the Water Department budget,” Leonard said. “State law requires the water budget be a self-contained portion of the budget.” According to Leonard, the actual city budget is two-thirds of the amount presented. In addition, the city provides many services for its citizens including, the virtually fullservice police, the Municipal Court, the fire department, zoning, and code compliance. Leonard said that city zoning regulations alone ensure that properties are kept up to standards. These regulations prevent the development of enterprises such as bars and junkyards in any location they might wish. The regulations also allow the city to moderate oil and gas

remains unknown. “The Council reenacted some of those items in April and those benefits were taken to the county,” Leonard said. Other benefits, especially those concerning persons over 65, created a legitimate concern for the Council because the reenacting of those items would benefit the majority of the Council members. This ethical concern prompted the Council to turn to the citizens for a show of support that would allow the Council to act without qualms. Leonard said the two petitions in question are just such a show that will allow the Council to move forward with the process of acting on the tax benefits.

the Parker County office has improved its performance in recent years and again compare the services from the two counties. But he confirmed that the petition has no legal or binding affect in this matter and the decision remains with the Council.

Tax benefits The two tax petitions are essentially connected and also relate back to a decision the Council made last April. One petition requests the establishment of a freeze of the tax rate for persons over 65 and the disabled. The second petition asks for an increase in the tax exemption for those over 65 and those disabled from the first $10,000 to the first $30,000. “As some of you may remember, the city attempted to enact very similar to the requests in these petitions some years ago,” Leonard said. “But apparently, the administration at the time failed to properly carry out all the paperwork necessary and the error was eventually noticed and the tax benefits, correctly, discontinued by the county.” Since everyone who was on the Council at the time is gone the exact reason for this error

De-annexation According to Leonard, the petition presented to the Council regarding the de-annexation of much of the western section of the city contains problems in addition to the invalid signatures. Leonard said he was concerned that many of the petitioners were unaware of the possible consequences that would come with de-annexation.

Caring Center seeks volunteers The Community Caring Center and food bank is in need of volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of people in the community who find themselves in need. Contact the center, located at 317 Commerce Street in Azle, by calling 817-270-2962. The Community Caring Center is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m.-12 noon; and Thursdays 4-7 p.m.

development which includes noise, pollution, trucks, and the location and spacing of both oil and gas wells and injection wells. Leonard said de-annexation would remove all those regulations. “The people must know the entire truth before they vote,” he said. The final element of the this petition that concerned Leonard deals with a lack compliance with the Local Government Code due to the vague description of the property to be de-annexed. “The statute requires a ‘metes and bounds’ description,” Leonard said. “This is essentially a surveyor’s type of description of property which uses distances, specific directions, and reference to fixed points.”

The language in the petition does not meet these requirements. The Supreme Court of Texas ruled that the technical requirements for de-annexation are the same as those for annexation and there can be no ambiguity in the description of the property. Conclusions “Based upon my findings and my conversations with the various agencies who are knowledgeable in this matter, the City Council may no call an election based upon any of the petitions presented at last month’s meeting.” Leonard said. However, he said that since the Council initiated the process regarding the tax benefits it may choose to consider these proposals and may consider whether it wishes to act on them.

City bond rating up 2 points S&P raises Azle to AA It’s been an 11-year battle, but the city of Azle’s bond rating with Standard & Poor’s was raised two points on Monday, Feb. 24, to “AA.” Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services said it raised its long-term rating and underlying rating (SPUR) on Azle’s general obligation (GO) bonds outstanding to ‘AA’ from ‘A+’. “The outlook is stable,” a press release from S&P said. “The higher rating reflects the city’s financial strength,” said Standard & Poor’s credit analyst Oscar Padilla, “and is based on our local GO criteria released Sept. 12, 2013. “The rating also reflects our opinion of the city’s very strong budgetary flexibility and liquidity position,” he added. Other factors include the city’s: • strong local economy; • adequate budgetary performance; • adequate debt and contingent liability position; Kent Meyerhoeffer coaxes a bidder to go higher while spotting for the live auction during the 2014 Red Solo Cup Barbeque Bash Saturday, Feb. 22.

• strong management practices; and • strong institutional framework score. “The stable outlook reflects our anticipation that Azle officials will maintain very strong financial reserves and effectively manage future capital expenditures,” said Padilla. “The outlook also reflects our anticipation that the city’s operations will remain stable within our two-year outlook horizon. “Although we do not anticipate raising the rating within the next two years, further expansion and diversification of the local economy, coupled with stronger budgetary performance, could lead us to raise the rating,” Padilla continued. “Conversely, should reserves and financial performance material deteriorate, we could lower the rating.” Azle City Manager Craig Lemin said the move puts the city just two notches away from the highly-desired AAA rating.

“We have improved the S&P rating six levels in just under 11 years,” Lemin said. “In 2003, during face-to-face ratings meetings with S&P for the water plant upgrade, we were fighting to maintain a BBB rating. At that time we had 56 days unrestricted cash on hand which S&P noted was “up from a weak two days’ cash on hand in fiscal 2001. “After showing S&P all the things that had been put in place to improve the city’s financial position, we were able to avoid a downgrade and maintain our BBB rating at that time,” Lemin continued. “We have come a long way since then and it is nice to be recognized for all our hard work. Hopefully Fitch and Moody’s will follow suit during their next reviews.” Mayor Alan Brundrett noted the improved rating could not have been achieved were it not for the hard work of Lemin, Assistant City Manager Lawrence Bryant and the city’s staff.

Yee-haw! Red Solo Cup FBC Azle garden group bash successful again welcomes water expert BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Last year’s inaugural Red Solo Cup Barbeque Bash was such a hit that extra tables had to be brought in this year – putting the buffet line outside on the patio of The Orchard. The second annual Bash was another sold-out crowd ready to support the Azle Education Foundation. Event chair Debra Jenkins said that while the donations are still coming in and an exact total has not yet been reached, it looks like this year’s event will come in somewhere near the $50,000 mark – just like

last year. Guests were entertained by the Azle High School Jazz Band prior to dinner and enjoyed a barbecue meal provided by The Railhead Smokehouse. But the most fun came during the live auction. Winners of the unique auction items include: • Hornet Field Sky Box and Reserved Parking for 2014 Season – Mark Huston of Lone Star Electric • Assistant Football Coach for 2014 Season Opener – Andy Rector • High School Jazz Band for an Event of your Choice – Sarah Bennett

First Baptist Church of Azle will host Dr. Dotty Woodson, Texas A&M Extension Water Conservation Specialist, at 10 a.m. Friday, March 7 at the church and the public may attend. Dr. Woodson will present a program called Landscape Water Conservation in which she will cover water use and quality issues – how every landscape can adopt a few practices to reduce water use and therefore save water and money. She will also include some instruction on sprinkler systems. The event is free to the public, and is just one of the first in a series of events planned by a

newly started garden club at the church. According to Jan Daniels, one of the organizers of the garden club, the group is working on plans for a garden and prayer walk to be an open venue for the community of Azle. “With Azle High School just across the street, it’s our hope to involve students in pilot gardening programs in connection with their studies,” Daniels said. “We have plans for picnic tables and a pavilion that are handicap welcome, with as much native flower coverage as we can manage. In the future, we hope to include a community vegetable garden.”

Two ‘Bay incumbents challenged, Feb. 28 last day to file BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN As the final day to file for a place on the ballot in local elections nears, two individuals did just that during the last week. All two filed to run for council seats in Pelican Bay, forcing that city to hold an election. The last day to file is Friday, Feb. 28. At press time, all candidates for office in the city of Azle, the Azle Independent School District and the town of Lakeside were running unopposed.

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT BY DARLENE HOLMES We had 28 seniors who came to lunch on beans and cornbread with us Monday. We had cake and ice cream for dessert. Most of them stayed and played Food Bank Bingo for the remaining pre-packaged food items. Looked like a nice selection of food for them. We sure packed a lot of goings-on here for our shortest month of the year. Everyone’s enjoying our two non-SCS lunch days each month. Special thanks to Sue Turnipseed for cooking the beans to go with the cornbread for us. Coming up in March will be: Friday, March 1, Bridge group meets in ceramic room about 9 a.m. They usually have three and sometimes four tables.

They’d love to have new folks join them. I’m told you can do classes at the Lake Worth Senior Center if you’d like to learn how. We have some seniors who like to play chickenfoot dominoes. It’s a colored dot domino game and lots of fun. Thursday is the regular day, after lunch, but sometimes some will play any day they can get a group together. Leftover non-perishable Food Bank Day items will be used for Food Bank Day prizes through Food Bank Bingo Day on Tuesday, March 5, after lunch. Come and meet the lunch bunch and join in on the fun and fellowship we have here Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for ages 60 and above.

Trio on OU honor roll Three Azle High School graduates earned spots on the University of Oklahoma’s scholastic fall honor roll. Hayden Ray Mahan, with a 4.0 grade point average, was listed on the President Honor Roll. Kristina M. Luetkemeyer and

Student becomes teacher in Chronic Disease Self-Management program Charles Roberson never thought his chronic condition would give him a chance to help others. Less than a year ago he joined the Better Choices, Better Health Chronic Disease Self-Management program at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle and has not only changed his life, but is looking to help other chronic disease sufferers change theirs as well. After graduating from the six-week program that taught him how to manage his chronic illness more effectively, Roberson felt his journey wasn’t over. So, he enrolled in the volunteer lay leader training program for Chronic Disease Self-Management at the hospital. As a lay leader, Roberson meets with chronic disease sufferers and helps to educate them on key things they need to effectively manage their conditions. He assists program participants who have conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, chronic pain, and

Jewel Elizabeth Carey Tennison June 3, 1925 – January 24, 2014 Jewel was born to George Otto and Jewel Audrey Fuller Carey on June 3, 1925. Her place of birth was the family home at 2715 McKinley Avenue in Fort Worth, Texas. This little girl was loved and adored by her family. In return, she loved and adored them. Little brother, Sonny Boy, went to heaven when he was only 9 and Jewel 14. Jewel missed her little brother the rest of her life. Big brother, Henry (H. T. “Red”) Carey, was Jewel’s friend as well as her brother. They had a close relationship and enjoyed spending time together. If they had cross words, I don’t know anything about it. Both Henry and Jewel were able to work together to meet their mother’s needs. Jewel became Mrs. William Tennison on November 13, 1943. Bill and Jewel were sweethearts their whole life. At 18 years of age this young wife was left behind while her husband went to war. She lived in anguish when she learned her husband was missing in action. He was in a prison camp but Jewel didn’t know if he was dead or alive. At the end of the war she was thrilled to have her husband back. He had been starved and tortured but he was alive. Bill returned to a self-sufficient young wife that had found work and saved for their future. Jewel had also helped her mother who was now divorced and struggling financially; all her mother’s debts had been cleared by the end of the war. This same work ethic was how Jewel lived her life. She was a knockout gorgeous young woman that made Uncle Bill’s heart go pitty-pat (I know because he told me so more than once). She was a loving daughter to her mother – she cared for her above and beyond the call of duty. She was just a little bit tomboy. She had her ruffles and frills when she needed to but she could ride a horse or about anything else she put her mind to. Her last days at home, she fed a fox Ginger Snaps and enjoyed watching him return for his treat each evening. She loved her family. She went above and beyond to show her many nieces and nephews how much she loved them. She made MANY beautiful birthday cakes that were always perfect. Not

everyone knew that perfection did not always come with the first cake. If AJ didn’t like the way her cake turned out – she threw it out to the peacocks that roamed the yard and made another one. She was famous for red velvet cake made from scratch (YUMMY LICIOUS). She had many good friends. She worked in her church in lots of different capacities. There is no telling how many dinners she organized and cooked for. She sang in a trio for years. She supported Uncle Bill as he worked as Sunday School Superintendent, deacon, etc. She was the bookkeeper for Tennison Brothers Violin Shop. She was an immaculate housekeeper. She had certain days of the week that certain things had to happen and it was a big deal if something got off schedule. Monday was wash day. Tuesday was violin shop day (worked all day with Uncle Bill because Loid took the day off and did the books). Wednesday was ironing day (everything got ironed). Thursday was Uncle Bill’s day off and reserved for fun things. Friday was banking and shopping day. Saturday was reserved for cleaning her mother’s house and running her errands. She went to great lengths to have her car perfectly shined. She didn’t take it somewhere to have it done. She did it. She had a special kit she put together so all the needed supplies were easily accessible. She decorated all the family’s graves at Christmas time with beautiful little wreaths she made. She collected them after the season and stored them away until the following year when the decorating was done again. She cheered success and mourned loss. In the last years where she had to have so many nurses in her home – she witnessed to them about Jesus and their need to have their life right. Many of them will tell you stories of Bible studies with Aunt Jewel. One tells of returning to her church after being away for years and years. Tribute by - Audrey Carey Mansell This lady was not just a pretty face and we miss her. We love you Aunt Jewel. Your nieces and nephews – Peggy Carey Johnson, Martha Carey Simmons, Audrey Carey Mansell, Priscilla Carey Harrison, Stella Carey Novikoff, Charlie Carey, Becky Carey Knight and Todd Carey.

PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER FOR THE PEOPLE Brian Hargrove is a proud personal injury lawyer that has been focused on this area of law since he was first licensed to practice. He is exclusively dedicated to representing individuals who have suffered serious personal injury, and also to the families of victims who have been injured or killed in a car, motorcycle, 18 wheeler, or drunk driving accident. Mr. Hargrove is dedicated to the belief that America’s legal system should work for the people, and he is committed to representing the rights of individuals. That’s why over the course of his career he has made it a deliberate choice to never defend an insurance company. EXPERIENCE As a personal injury trial lawyer, Brian Hargrove firmly believes that education and trial preparation is the key to achieving success. He is a proud member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association as well as several professional organizations that are dedicated to continuing education and trial preparation. Many lawyers want a good settlement offer without proper education or trial

preparation, and if a good offer isn’t forthcoming they are inclined to accept a low offer or drop the case. Conversely, Mr. Hargrove’s use of cutting-edge education, strategies, and technology enable him to attain the best results for his clients. “I provide my clients with the same advice and guidance I would give to my own mother if she were in the same situation.” Brian Hargrove’s approach to his practice is based around careful case selection. Unlike some attorneys you see on TV, he does not accept every case presented to him. Rather, Mr. Hargrove personally discusses the incident with prospective clients to ensure it meets his case criteria. It’s for this reason that his clients can be certain they have his dedicated and personal attention for the duration of their case. “My goal has never been to get the most clients, but instead to get the most for my clients.” Before you talk to a car insurance adjuster, sign any forms, or hire an attorney for your personal injury case, give me a call to discuss your legal options. Call 817-444-HURT (4878) and speak directly to me. I will evaluate your claim to see if I’m the right car wreck lawyer for you.

Area sees some modest gains in sales tax revenue BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN State sales tax revenue in January was $2.3 billion, up 8.3 percent compared to January 2013 according to Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “Increases were seen across all major sectors of the Texas economy,” Combs said. “This indicates continued expansion in both consumer and business spending, and brings the growth in fiscal year-to-date collections to 4.6 percent compared with the previous year. Sales tax revenue has increased for 46 consecutive months.” Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their February local sales tax allocations totaling $802.1 million, up 8.2 percent compared to February 2013. The sales tax figures represent December sales reported by monthly tax filers as well as October, November, and December sales by businesses that report tax quarterly. Locally, the larger cities saw modest increases compared with February 2013, while the smaller cities saw decreases. The distinct exception is the town of Lakeside which saw another huge increase. Lakeside more than doubled its February 2013 revenue of $8,547 when it received a check for $17,988 for February 2014.

That’s an increase of 110.45 percent. The town’s year-to-date revenue of $30,830 is also up from last year’s totals of $14,570 or 111.59 percent. The city of Azle received sales tax revenue of $219,798, or 0.97 percent more than in February 2013 when it received $217,686. Added to January’s totals, that brings the city’s total sales tax revenue for calendar year 2014 to $376,789, up just 0.13 percent from the same period in 2013. Azle’s Crime Control and Prevention District received $39,516 for February – 0.78 percent higher than February 2013 revenues of $39,208. The district is down slightly on the year, with totals from January and February at $69,576 compared with $69,612 for the first two months of 2013. That’s a drop of 0.05 percent. Azle’s Municipal Development District collected $36,302 for February and its year-to-date revenues are $62,465. Because the district did not begin collecting sales tax until October 2013, there is no history to compare these numbers with. The city of Springtown received a check for $80,038 for February – an increase of 0.09 percent from the $79,965 it received in February 2013. So far in 2014, the city’s sales tax revenue is $142,648. Compared to its revenues for the same period in 2013 of $155,521, that’s a de-

“I pledge to do the best job for the taxpayer and keeping your money safe is a priority.”

Do not be fooled by all talk and no experience. We cannot afford on-the-job-training for County Judge. How did that work for us in the White House? As a life-long resident of Parker County, I feel compelled to write and let the people of Parker County know just how important the current race for the County Judge is to our county’s future and why Judge Mark Riley is the only candidate we can trust to lead the county for the next 4 years. As taxpayers and law-abiding citizens, we deserve qualified, proven performance from the CEO of our county. The job of County Judge is the highest elected position in county government. It is not an honorary title to be used later as resume padding for some other perceived “higher office.” During my lifetime, I have witnessed the administrations of 7 different Parker County Judges. And Mark Riley is quite possibly the most conservative county CEO that I have ever known. The position of County Judge is an around-the-clock, 24 hour-a-day, 7 daysa-week, full-time commitment to our county and its people. It is not a parttime job for a private sector land developer with possible conflicts of interest adverse to those of the citizen he seeks to govern. As taxpayers and lawabiding citizens, we expect and deserve top performance from the CEO of our county. It is not simply an honorary title or a position to use later as resume padding. As I have observed Mark over the last 16 years, it is an around-the-clock, 24 hour-a-day, 7 days-a-week, labor-of-love commitment to a county and its people. Mark also has a staunch commitment for law enforcement. Perhaps just as important as meeting the usual need of your citizens, Mark Riley has been out-front collaboration with state and regional transportation authorities in order to solve traffic and road problems. Mark’s success in the transportation arena did not come overnight. Rather, it required years of onthe-job, pull-up-your-sleeves, hard-work and experience to obtain the trust necessary to earn a position of authority on the Regional Transportation Board as well as other important commission that impact the future of Parker County. We cannot afford to lose such a powerful seat at the regional transportation table at this time in our county’s history. We cannot afford to waste time while a newcomer cuts its teeth on issues that need immediate attention. We cannot risk allowing Mark’s opponent, a newcomer, to use the highest position in our county’s government for personal gain. Well, for me and my family, Parker County is our home. It is where we go to church and where we send our children and grandchildren to school. “We are proud to stand up and support Judge Mark Riley because he, too, is committed to standing up for Parker County - For today and for tomorrow, for the long haul.”

than children from higher-income families. With more than 1.5 million Texas children living in poverty, there is a great need for preventive dental care. Dental problems also directly affect success for children, with more than 51 million school hours lost each year to dentalrelated illness. Teachers have judged both classroom performance and behavior to be significantly lower among children in need of dental care. Pain and suffering due to untreated dental disease can also lead to problems in eating and speaking.

More than 260 first graders in Springtown and Azle recently received free tooth decay prevention kits through the Fantastic Teeth Fan Club. Paul Gregory led members of Eureka Masonic Lodge in assembling and delivering kits to the schools. The goal of the Fantastic Teeth Fan Club, sponsored by Masonic Home and School of Texas (MHS), is to prevent suffering from toothaches, reduce missed school days due to dental problems, and to cut costs for dental treatment among children. The tooth decay prevention kits included a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, healthy

Thankful for 10 years in the bonus round


n Feb. 27, 2004, the Bride and I got creamed by a drunk driver. (She was the official sports photographer of the paper back then and was riding shotgun.) It had already been quite a day. The Azle boys basketball team had pulled off one of the great victories in AHS sports history, a 66-63 playoff win over perennial power Fort Worth Dunbar. Coming back from the Denton Super Pit on Highway 380, I almost pulled into a convenience store for a Sprite. Instead I drove on – for about two miles. Then an impatient guy in a dualie pickup tried to pass a long line of Denton-bound cars and didn’t make it. We were going 65 mph and he likely much faster when, despite my desperate swerve, he nailed us on the driver’s side

rear quarter panel. We rolled 243 feet amid broken glass in a jet-black atmosphere since all the lights and side windows blew after the first flip. But the wreck isn’t the real story. Oh, we lost our truck and got thrown into a financial morass and it took years to settle the claims (which ON YOUR MARK didn’t come close to recovering what the Cletus...R.I.P. accident cost us). No, thanks to not landing on our roof while our beloved way” stories; every time we turned Ford truck, Cletus, rolled and spun over, we landed on a side or the botand flipped, we survived. tom of the truck. It’s one of those “an inch either So, we didn’t die. In fact, aside from

a few cuts and bruises and the Bride’s lingering back pain, we came out downright peachy. We didn’t die! And now I’ve had 10 years to celebrate that wonder – a decade of a bonus round of life. That’s been five grandchildren. And sprawling family vacations. If I want some Blue Bell, I eat it. Even when I’ve reached a destination, I stay in the vehicle and listen to “Situation” by Yaz cranked. Or sing along with all of “American Pie.” I sit on our westward facing “sunset bench” after a steamy near-dusk summertime run and watch the sun drop while the mockingbirds dart around and the bats wake up and swoop about. I take pictures of bluebonnets and bunnies and clouds and giant icicles and all those other stop-and-smell-theroses cliches. Did God spare us? Bless us? Keep

His hand on us? And, if so, why us and not others? I don’t ponder that too often – there’s too much to do. But the wreck did change my prayer life. I used to spend a lot of time asking for protection/help for a slew of things, a veritable laundry list ticked off nocturnally. Now, that’s almost completely changed. Oh, there are still specific requests I ask of the Almighty. But mostly now, it’s all about thanks. Thanks for the good health. Thanks for the safety of family. Thanks for America. Thanks for allowing me to have more good fortunate than most other people on the planet. Thanks for another day! And I’m thankful that next time I want a Sprite, I will stop and get it. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and thinks the world is a great place!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Saying thanks to a longtime doctor Some 40 years ago (can it be?), we met Dr. Frank Lonergan and his wife at a backyard welcoming event. We recognized in this young doctor a compassion and sensitivity that was refreshing and satisfying. Since then he has cared for members

of our family with that same compassion. His humor has seen us through some tense times, and his honesty has been reliable. Thank you, Dr. Lonergan, for what you have meant to this community. Success has not kept you from continuing toward your dreams of making a difference. You have and you will! Jerry and Sue Miller

Borax is well-known because of 20-mule teams transporting the mineral in the West


ost readers no doubt have heard of “20 Mule Team Borax.” Back in the 1960s there was a popular television show called Death Valley Days, sponsored by a borax company. In fact, the show began in 1930 and lasted until 1945 on the radio. Ronald Reagan hosted the TV show from 1964-65, but left when he turned to politics. Hosts after Reagan were Robert Taylor and Dale Robertson. Actress Rosemary De Camp made commercials about the soap product, called “20 Mule Team Borax.” Borax is a white, crystalline salt with an alkaline taste that is used in soldering metals, manufacturing glass, enamel, artificial gems, and also soaps and antiseptics. Borax was first discovered in dry lake beds in Tibet approximately 4,000 years ago. By the eighth century A.D. Arabs imported it from Tibet for goldsmiths to use. Marco Polo even brought borax back


with him to Europe from Mongolia where it had been used to make porcelain glazes. Europe began importing it for glass making by the 15th century. It was expensive. Some deposits were found in Italy and Turkey, but the price became cheaper when a lot of it was discovered in the American West in the late 19th century. Some found borax in Nevada as early as the 1870s, but Aaron Winters apparently is the first whose name is attached to finding it in California. He was prospecting unsuccessfully for gold in eastern California in 1881 when someone told him he ought to look for borax. If he found the white crystals, he was to pour alcohol and sulfuric acid over the ore and set it on fire. If it turned green, it was borax. Winters found some, did the process, and it turned green. “It burns green, Rosie!” he told his wife. “We're rich.” He soon sold his claim to William T. Coleman for $20,000, which in 1882 seemed like a lot of money. Coleman built a plant

in Death Valley, where the ore was found, and processed the mineral there. He had to transport the borax from the mines and processing plant to the railroad at Mojave, Calif. Death Valley, located PAGES FROM in eastern CaliWESTERN fornia near the Nevada border HISTORY in the Mojave J’Nell L. Pate Desert, is the lowest and driest place in all of North America. Temperatures in the summer reach 110 to 120 degrees or more. He used teams of eight or ten mules at first, but his superintendent and a mule driver had the idea of hitching two ten-mule teams together. The 20-mule teams (20 mules, ten teams,

actually 18 mules and two horses) stretched 100 feet and took ten days to carry ten tons of borax 165 miles to the railroad. They operated from 1883 to 1888 until a railroad was built to the mines. During that time they didn't lose an animal or a wagon. Coleman expanded too fast, and in 1890 declared bankruptcy and sold out for $500,000 to Francis Marion Smith who earlier found some borax in Nevada. Smith created Pacific Coast Borax Company. Smith used the symbol of the mule teams pulling the wagons in 1891 on boxes of borax and registered it as his official trademark in 1894. People called him “Borax” Smith because he aggressively promoted the name “20 Mule Team Borax” to increase sales. He claimed that borax would help one's digestion, keep milk sweet, clear up a bad complexion, remove dandruff, soften the bath water, cure epilepsy, eliminate bunions and kill fleas! (I found a web-site that tells how to kill fleas with borax.) He got carried

away, and after 1914 his company was owned by a British firm until 1956 when Americans acquired it again as United States Borax and Chemical Corporation. Rio Tinto Borax bought U.S. Borax in 1967 and today supplies nearly half the world's borax from their open-pit mine in California. A company town, Boron, in the Mojave Desert east of Mojave, Calif. operates a Twenty Mule Team Museum that they opened in 1984. Soap manufacturer, Dial Corporation, produces “Twenty Mule Team Borax” which still has the picture of the ten teams pulling the heavy wagons. I found it available in Brookshire’s. Since Death Valley is so sweltering, perhaps Aaron Winters and his wife Rosie, who sold out for $20,000, weren't so dumb after all. To them, it was a fortune, and they could get out of that heat! Retired history professor J’Nell Pate of Azle has authored several books, many of which are on sale in the lobby of the Azle News.

The agency estimated more than 60 percent of the women served will receive family planning services and that to be eligible for the program women must be 18 years of age or older and at or below 200 percent of Federal Poverty Level guidelines. According to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, 3.3 million Texas women are at or below the Federal Poverty Level.

83rd Texas Legislature provided $240 million in funding for women’s health services, including cancer screenings, wellness exams and other health services to an additional 170,000 women. “As a result, women’s health in Texas is now funded at record levels and Texas has the capacity to serve more women than ever before,” she said, adding, “Now we need to ensure that the resources we invested are truly meeting the needs of Texas women.” Sen. Kirk Watson, chair of the Texas Senate’s Democratic Caucus, posted a reaction saying, “We’re encouraged by Chairwoman Nelson’s pledge to have ‘a thorough discussion of every aspect’ of the state’s efforts to provide healthcare to Texas women.”

Undermanned ACS claims hoops state title


Buzzer beater the difference BY MARK K. CAMPBELL Woefully undermanned in the state championship game, weary and trailing, the Azle Christian School Crusaders (17-3) were down to the final two minutes behind 37-35. Yet, ACS would win a shocker, 39-37 – with just six players. The bigger, stronger Cornerstone team from Granbury towered over ACS and already had beaten the Crusaders twice earlier in the season. Freshman Jeremiah Carlson stepped to the free throw line in Weatherford at Trinity Christian for the Azle school for a pair of charity shots. He made the first one. Cor-

nerstone called a time out to ice the ninth grader, but it didn’t work. Carlson nailed that second one, too. Tied at 35, Cornerstone worked the ball for well over a minute, Crusader coach Robert Hall recalled. “That allowed us to catch our wind,” he said. “We were really spent.” ACS got the ball back with one minute left and peeled off 48 seconds before Hale called a time out. Twelve seconds remained. A designed play got the ball to Joey Rosamond whose shot torturously teased the rim before falling through at the buzzer.

Azle Christian School had won the Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship state title. The earlier losses – both close games, one a double overtime affair – had been avenged. The Crusaders gave up a big height advantage inside, Hale said. “They had one guy sixfive and another six-four. We didn’t have anyone over six foot.” To get to the title game, ACS first beat Arlington Flynt 48-45 as Rosamond led with 14 points and Carlson added 12. In the semifinal clash against Lewisville Lakeland, the Crusaders roared to a 68-21 victory. Joe Carlson paced ACS with

AHS win streak reaches 11 before late tourney loss BY MARK K. CAMPBELL The Lady Hornet softball team did not lose a game the first 11 times they hit the diamond. Azle (11-1) finally did fall – but not until the last game of the season’s second tournament against Ennis. After beginning 2014 by winning the Brock tourney, the Lady Hornets moved on to White Settlement and the Brewer tournament, hosted by former AHS coach Vera Ortega. Even with the Ennis loss, Azle won the Brewer event on points accumulated through the six games, coach Tracy Tadlock said. The Lady Hornets opened with a 10-0 shut out of Kennedale behind the stellar pitching of Makenzi Harris (5-1). That was followed by a 14-1 crushing of Plainview, with SaLady Hornet Sarah Brown unloads on a pitch. Azle went mantha Bradley the winning Photo by Mark K. Campbell pitcher. 11-0 to begin the season.


She also beat Cleburne, 4-0 the next day in a game that was originally set to be against Aledo before the highly-lauded Lady Cats bailed for another event. The squads will meet in College Station this weekend. Harris got the win next, against Northwest, then Bradley went to 6-0 with a 17-1 cruiser over Graham. That set up the Ennis game. Tadlock said of the 3-0 loss: “Ennis was a very good team with a bit unorthodox style.” That included five “slappers” who got Ennis two runs early. “We will make some adjustments and hopefully see them again down the road,” Tadlock said. Still, the tourney was a success. “Our pitching duo had been outstanding and our offense has been very good,” the coach said. “We are in a pretty good spot right now.”

Hardball Hornets get year underway at home BY MARK K. CAMPBELL The baseball season began big time for Azle (1-5) when the Hornets were a host diamond for the Jerry Durant Classic Feb. 20-22. Right off the bat, AHS had a shot at the squad that ended Azle’s 2013 season, Birdville. The Hawks won a close 2-1 game. Despite a fine effort from the mound, Tommy Kay got the loss. Jesse Salisbury got 2 of Azle’s 3 hits and he scored the lone AHS run. Next, the Hornets put 9 runs on the scoreboard, but Mansfield Summit got 11; at one

point, Anthony Barron’s Azle squad led 6-2. Trey Ramos went 3-for-5 with a homer, 4 runs scored, and 2 RBI. Josh Hilton plated 3 runners and Sean Townsend walloped a triple. The next day, Feb. 21, AHS faced South Grand Prairie and, in another game Barron said the Hornets were in good shape to win, Azle fell, 6-3; SGP scored 4 runs in the sixth inning to snatch away the contest. Tyler Flynn and Townsend both hit safely twice for Azle and Tyler Albers tripled. Next, AHS got 10 hits against Northwest but lost 11-5.

Trevor Boiles homered and got 2 hits; Josh Hilton and Flynn also collected 2 safeties. On Feb. 22, Midland Christian topped the Hornets 15-4. The game was 7-4 until a big visitor’s outburst in the seventh. Dalton Cole, Boiles, and Kay got the AHS RBI. The first win followed, 5-3 over Crowley. Kay went 2-for3 with 2 RBI to lead Azle. Coach Barron said, “For sure, our record does not reflect on how well we played. We are a young team that needed to get used to some of the pressure at the varsity level. That is what these tournaments are about.”

Soccer squads sitting in prime playoff position

All-District Basketball

Boys 1st, girls 2nd as round 2 gets underway There was great joy among Azle soccer folks when both AHS teams beat Aledo – a rare feat – on Jan. 28. In the second meeting of the rivals as round two of 12-4A began, the potent Aledo squads took the victories. The Azle boys (7-1 in district) won 3-0 in the first meeting. This time at Aledo, the Bearcats came out on top, 2-1, the first district loss for the Hornets. Scoring for Azle was Danny Gomez. Earlier, the first round of 124A play ended at Springtown with an easy 5-0 win over the Porcupines, coach Ben Buentello recalled. The girls (6-1-1) finished off the first round of district play with a 9-0 thumping of Springtown. Azle completed the first route through 12-4A in first place, one point ahead of Boswell, 19-18. Third place Aledo (15 points) began round two of district. On the road, the Lady Hornets lost 3-0 to the Lady Cats. “It was closer than the score indicates,” coach Trent Davis said. Aledo led 1-0 when a shot by Lady Hornet Molly Grover hit the post in the first half, just inches from tying the match. The contest stayed 1-0 until late when the Lady Cats scored twice. Davis said, “We had our chances – we just couldn’t finish. It just wasn’t meant to be this time.” The loss dropped Azle to second place, but the future is more than rosy. “If we win out, we will be Lady Hornet Paige Fugate heads a ball. Azle is perched second in the District 12-4A race. Photo by Mark K. Campbell district champs,” Davis said.

Several Azle High School players were lauded for their hoops play. The Lady Hornets had six girls recognized for outstanding play including Kaycie Dunkerley (right), the 5-4A Newcomer of the Year. Landing on the First Team were Morgan Prentice and Valarie Matlock. Payton Berger and Taylor Fulfer were Second Team selections while Maci Wilbanks landed on the Honorable Mention list. For the boys, Colton Bagwell (left) led; he was a Second Team pick. Two other seniors landed on the Honorable Mention roster: Jesse Salisbury and Cooper Rush. Photos by Mark K. Campbell

Track seasons take flight A trip to Denton for an early season track meet wasn’t the greatest of outings. Lady Hornet coach Melody Dennis said the meet wasn’t run too well. Still plenty of AHS athletes got in some action. Spencer Watzlavick took second in the 110 hurdles. Chase Smith finished third in the high

jump, coach Keith Boenisch said. Isaac Marquez took third in the long jump. The Hornet 4x400 team finished second and the 4x800 squad was third. The Lady Hornets got a “superb” effort from Sarah Perna, Kylie Fonville, Crystal McConnell, and Sydney Bivens in the 4x800, Dennis said.

The 4x400 team – Emily Kolar, Brooke Smith, Natalie Smith, and Karly Thomas – ran a personal best. Other standouts named by Dennis: hurdlers Katie Phillips, Breeona Cannon, and AydenThomason; high jumpers Kaylie Peters and Kolar; and throwers Maddie Parkison and Katy O’Dell.


Movie Man

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Explosive ancient math: Gladiator + Titanic = Pompeii The Movie Man expected a big ‘ol chunk of epic cheese with Pompeii. Based on dorky trailers, it looked like a standard 3 or so. However, surprise!, it’s better than that. It ain’t great, but it’s no 3 either. About the film A famous movie faux pas is the 1969 picture Krakatoa: East of Java about the most infamous eruption of all time back in 1883. The giant volcano that blew its top was actually on the west coast of Java, not east. Such are the liberties of cinema. Plenty are taken all the time, of course, and this week’s Pompeii is no different. All disaster movies can be counted on to hit specific tropes: two guys don’t like each other but eventually team up; there’s a love story; animals play a part; a little girl falls down amid a swarming, fleeing horde yet is saved by a hero; one of the good guys dies memorably. This blueprint has worked for biblical epics and natural disasters and high rises aflame. The latter gold standard is The Towering Inferno in 1974. It arrived in the midst of a slew of star-studded disaster movies. Like: Airport (1970, Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin), The Poseidon Adventure (1972, Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine), and Earthquake (1974, Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner). Inferno was the biggie, though. Paul Newman and Steve McQueen in the same movie was a big draw. So were a slew of other big name stars of the day – and a few aging ones, too. Seeing Pompeii reminded the Movie Man of the dueling volcano movies from 1997. Dante’s Peak (Movie Man No. 166, a 6) won the race to come out first, arriving in February. It didn’t do great; it lacked star power – Pierce Brosnan was the lead – and

took in just over half of its $116 million budget. In May, Volcano (MM #178, 5) hit with about the same clout; it, made less ($47.5 million) than Dante’s Peak but cost less to make ($90 million). The failure of the two seemed to put Hollywood off volcano movies, until Pompeii. So, naturally, the Movie Man wasn’t expecting much – in fact, very little. That’s why this 6 is such a surprise. The plot Young Milo sees his family, from a tribe of ancient horsemen, killed by Romans opening a new trade route. Discovered, Milo (Kit Harington [TV’s Game of Thrones] as an adult) becomes a slave. Known as the Celt, he achieves fame as a mighty gladiator. So, Harington is shipped off to Pompeii to be the foe for the champion there, Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbje, the beloved Eko from TV’s Lost). The guy who oversaw the murder of Harington’s family, Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland), arrives in Pompeii where the nearby mountain that looms over the city keeps rumbling. Sutherland has his evil eye on the ruler of Pompeii’s daughter, Cassia (Emily Browning).



Volcano 1, Humans 0 Starring: Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson Rated PG-13: violence, gore, lots of folks burnt plumb up email:

... on a scale of 1-10

Movie Man When things look bad for Harington and Akinnuoye-Agbje, the volcano blows its top. Suddenly all this petty human activity doesn’t seem like a big deal as everyone makes a mad dash to the harbor to try to escape the fury raining and flowing down.

nal 30 minutes or so and the computer generation is fantastic. In one scene, water is sucked back into the ocean, a precursor to a tsunami. Soon, it arrives with a vengeance and crashes through streets jammed with fleeing citizens. Leading the way is a giant ship that the water propels through the town down a people-packed boulevard. The ending has some clout, too as the lovers eventually understand that escape is not possible. Sutherland is wonderful to root against and he gets his just due. So does...

What works (spoiler) The Movie Man saw Pompeii in 3-D and it was worth the upcharge. The opening scene has some cool wafting ashes floating about and there are other instances of exploded rocks hurling toward town (called Best scene (spoiler) Akinnuoye-Agbje is back in “bombs” in volcanology lingo).

the arena with the chaos of the volcanic activity creating chaos all round. There awaits the great Roman champion, Proculus (Sasha Roiz). They battle mightily and the Roman falls. But a colossal pyroclastic flow – the ultimate kill-everything-inits-path-roiling-superheatedsmoke/fire-ground-cloud-ofdeath – is arriving in town. Akinnuoye-Agbje simply turns and announces to the titanic eruption that he is ready to die, a free man. What doesn’t work Pompeii is so cliché loaded that it’s hard not to chuckle sometimes. Disaster movies require that belief be substantially suspended and that’s necessary here, too. Like, somehow, despite incredible desolation (shown earlier), the streets are clear for Sutherland, trying to escape in a chariot with a captured Browning. And the pursuing Harington, on a horse, leaps over gigantic crevasses as he dodges volcano bombs from above and crumbling structures all around while bolting through thick smoke. It’s unintentionally funny and cornball.

The rating There some higher amounts than normal gore in Pompeii – blood dripping off swords, lots of stabbings, etc. But it’s still a PG-13. Summing up The Movie Man is always happy to see a movie that’s better than expected. And that’s what happened with Pompeii; it’s not fantastic, but okay for what it does – CG fast food. Next up Son of God.
