Chaos in the Box

Break-ins plaguing local church BY NATALIE GENTRY Solid Rock Bible Church on South Reno Road has experienced two burglaries in the past three months. The fi rst incident happened in November when the thieves kicked in the door to the pastor’s offi ce and took all of the church’s computers. The most recent burglary occurred on Feb. 20, and this time the thieves did much more damage Once they gained entrance by prying the back door in the sanctuary open, they took two guitars belonging to members of the church. They also lifted a Yamaha keyboard and stand, two stage monitors, and a safe that was in secretary’s office.

And, the criminals stole the brand new computer, monitor, speakers, and printer from the secretary’s offi ce – all items that were replaced from the previous break-in. In addition to the thefts the burglars also caused a lot of damage to the church itself. They knocked a large hole in the wall to gain entrance to the pastor’s offi ce where they destroyed many items The damage also includes craft paint that was spilled on the carpet in secretary’s office. Anyone with information about the burglaries should contact the Reno Police department at 817-221-2500.

Protect yourself and neighbors from thieves BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Burglaries are up. Not just in Azle, but in a broader area that includes Azle, Springtown, Boyd, and unincorporated areas in Tarrant, Parker and Wise counties. Azle Police Detective Sgt. Kevin Rogers says he’s up to his ears in burglary reports of homes, apartments, buildings, and vehicles. For Rogers, the dilemma is often with those who make it easier for the criminals. “I just wish people would watch out for one another,” Rogers said. “People need to know their neighbors and watch out for unusual activity. “Don’t assume everything is okay when you see someone you don’t recognize loading things into a vehicle. Take the initiative and call the police.” An unusual vehicle continuously driving through a neighborhood could

be a burglar looking for easy targets. Get a license plate number and give it to local police, Rogers said. He is also frustrated with those who make criminals’ jobs so easy by leaving valuables in plain sight in their vehicles. After all, there’s nothing more enticing to a thief than a laptop, smart phone or other electronics left sitting in the front seat while the driver runs inside a store for “just a minute.” That minute is all it takes. “Lock your valuables in the trunk or take them with you,” Rogers advised. “Pay attention to your neighbors’ habits, learn who visits them, and report any unusual or suspicious activity,” he said. There’s an easy way to sum up the best protection from crime around, according to Rogers. “Love thy neighbor.”

Local elections take shape Azle, Lakeside cancel elections, saving taxpayers thousands BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN The deadline to fi le an application for a place on the ballot for the General Election slated for May 10 has come and gone, and there were some last minute filers. The city of Azle will save almost $10,000 by canceling its election this year, since there are no contested races in town. Lakeside, too, will cancel its election due to lack of contest, thereby saving around $4,000. A last-minute fi ler for Place 2 on the Board of Trustees for the Azle Independent School District means the ISD will hold an election. The city of Pelican Bay will also hold elections after four last-minute fi lers – three of whom already hold city council seats – filed to run for the Mayor’s seat.

199 Rollover

Tom Petty’s term in Place 2 is expiring and he has opted to run for the office of Mayor rather than defend his seat. Robin Finstad and Bill Morley, who currently occupy Places 5 and 3 respectively, still have a year remaining in their terms. If either of them wins the Mayoral election, a vacant City Council seat will be left to fill. Two of three races in the city of Reno are contested, requiring an election there, as well. See box on page 2A for a complete list of candidates in these local elections. General election early voting Azle voters who live in Tarrant County may vote early at the B.J. Clark Annex; those who live in Parker County may vote early at Azle Masonic Lodge #601. Pelican Bay voters can cast ballots early at the B.J. Clark Annex, as well. Early voting for Lakeside will take place at the Sheriff’s Office North Patrol Division in Lake Worth.

AHS grad gets 30-year sentence

Three people were taken to Texas Health Azle Monday afternoon with minor injuries following a one-vehicle accident on SH 199 near Ash Creek Drive. Madison Hillard, 23, of Springtown, was behind the wheel of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee when her 4-year-old daughter, in the back seat, called out to her. According to the accident report fi led by Trooper Chris Markin of the Texas Department of Public Safety, Hillard turned to check on the child, causing the Jeep to veer left toward the median. Hillard jerked the wheel right, but saw another vehicle in her path, so she went left again, causing the Jeep to roll. Her passengers, Richard Andrews, 22, and the child were transported as a precaution. All three were released from the hospital in short order. No charges were filed. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

This Week in Azle History

30 Years Ago

BY MARK K. CAMPBELL Days before he was slated for trial, Kyle Austin Ware pleaded guilty to four sexual crimes and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Ware, 31, received 30 years on three counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child and got 20 years for another count, indecency with a child by contact. All counts will be served at the same time with no parole. Ware was scheduled to go on trial March 3 and could have been facing life in prison for the fi rst-degree felonies. Collin County prosecutor Crystal Levonius said, “The defendant rightfully accepted responsibility for his actions.” Defense attorney Robbie McClung said, “He put the feelings of the girls first.” Ware was arrested at DFW Airport last April and has been jailed since with a bond of more than $1 million. The crimes stem from when Ware was a cheerleading coach at private gyms in the Dallas area and date back to 2007.

sEnior spotlight By DARLENE HoLMES We will be talking about these strange weather changes we’ve been experiencing around here lately for years to come. I can’t remember it ever being like this and it changes so quickly – maybe there really is something going with our world’s climates and global warming. I just know it’s cold! I’m ready to jump right on into summer. Coming up here at the Senior Center will be: Friday, March 7 Food Bank Day and Nutrition Education. Phyllis Nelson, the dietitian at Texas Health Hospital here in Azle will be here for a short nutrition education program. She does it during lunch and brings handouts for the seniors to take home with them. We’re so lucky that the hospital allows her to come and talk to the seniors about nutrition. She always does a good job and it’s always interesting and beneficial to the seniors. Tuesday, March 11 will be our next “No SCS Hot Meal Day.” The seniors have really

been enjoying these two days each month. We haven’t decided yet what we’ll be having. It will also be Food Bank Bingo right after lunch. We’ll be playing for the leftover Food Bank Bags. We keep our lunch time at noon like we do the other days. Wednesday, March 12 will be our monthly birthday and anniversary party. Hope and Johnny and their band will be here to play for us. Hope’s Sister, Alecia, is getting started back. She and Hope do some beautiful songs together. Their band is great – all of them. They get here and set up and start playing about 10:15 a.m. I really have to talk to my feet when they’re here. They just won’t behave themselves! For those who have come to us after the Food Handler’s Class held in Fort Worth last year, we will be having ours on Friday, March 14 here in the B.J. Clark Community Center. We’ve combined it with our volunteer class and get both done on the same day here. If you help out with parties, Food

Bank or Produce Day, you need to come take the volunteer class. We couldn’t do all we do here without our many volunteers helping out. The Food Handlers class is for those who volunteer in the kitchen and lunch program. You must take that class to work in the food dispersal end of it. The Food Handlers are also volunteers, so they have to take both classes. The volunteer

class will be first so they can take their class and leave. We really do need our folks to take these classes. And the drivers have a part about their insurance coverage so they’ll also talk about that end of it. I think the class starts at 9 or 9:30 a.m. Friday, March 14. Come early so it can start on time. Sometimes the leaders have two or three classes throughout the day all over the

EngagEmEnts

area. Our Center Council will meet in the Annex after lunch March 13. We need all of our Center Council officers to attend this meeting. We have something to discuss before our business meeting March 21. Our next AARP Safe Driving class will be Thursday, March 21 in the Annex Building, Room 7, from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Stop by and check out the activities here at the Senior Center. You’ll probably see someone you know. I guarantee you’ll see something you like. We’ve really been busy here, especially the last two weeks. We had two weeks of early voting going on at the same time we had free AARP Tax help going on. We had to do a lot of shuffling to accommodate everyone.

Beware of Tarrant jury duty scam If you receive a phone call requesting payment of a fine for failure to appear for jury duty, you’re most likely talking to a scam artist. Tarrant County residents need to be aware of a scam seeking fraudulent over-the-phone payments for failing to appear for jury duty, said Tarrant County Jury Services Bailiff Paula G. Morales. The scam involves an individual calling a Tarrant resident and telling him or her there is a warrant out for the person’s arrest for failing to appear for jury duty. They are then given the option to pay their fine with a credit card to avoid being arrested. Morales said that if a warrant is actually issued for failing to

INSIDE DIGEST

appear for jury duty that a uniformed officer would personally serve the warrant. If an officer contacts you by phone, it would be to instruct you to immediately report to the jury room or to a court in order to avoid potential sanctions. No money is ever requested or collected over the phone for failure to report for jury duty. Additionally, any fines or sanctions would be assessed by the judge only after the person is brought before the court. If you have any questions about a call alleging you have a warrant for failing to appear for jury duty, contact the Tarrant County Jury services at 817-884-3820.

Kids can have a lot of fun right here in Azle over Spring Break. The Azle Memorial Library, 333 West Main Street, has four big events planned – all free. Kicking things off at the Library Spring Break Extravaganza is music. On Tuesday, March 11, the Mondo Drummers will perform from 6-7 p.m. at the Central Park amphitheater. If it rains, the “amazing rhythm music” will be moved to the library’s Community Room. A chance to learn cartooning awaits kids ages 7-12 on Wednesday, March 12. Mike Brown, owner of Brown Cow Productions, will conduct the class from 1 to 3 p.m. with all material supplied. Reservations are required and there is limited seating. Contact the children’s librarian at 817-

444-7216 to register. Preregistration is also necessary for the Camp Out at the Science Fort on Thursday, March 13. From 10 a.m. to noon, Alan Small of worthlearning.org will conduct a camp – again with all materials supplied – in the library Community Room and on a school bus. The contact for this activity is also the children’s librarian. The final day is a special “Spring Break Edition” of the weekly LEGO club. On Friday, March 14 from 4 to 5:30 p.m., kids ages 5 to 12 are invited to “brick it up!” No registration is required for the LEGO Club. All Library Spring Break Extravaganza activities are funded through the Azle Library Trust. For more information on the events, call the library at 817-444-7216.

Gotta have it! Fessing up to being a cheater

Y

eah, I cheated. Please don’t tell the Bride. She was out of town, I was alone, and, suddenly, there sat such lusciousness, tempting me with all the ingredients a man like me desires, lusts for, has got to have – I’m not made of steel! I had to have it! And I did. And, man, that macaroni and cheese was worth it! I have one of those loving Brides who monitors every morsel of food intake “because I love you.” She disagrees with my food theory: Eat everything you can for a long as you can before some sort of disease forces you to change. No one on their deathbed ever said, “Thank goodness I didn’t eat too many chocolate donuts!” Or the converse: “Man, I’m glad I choked down

so much kale before I succumbed!” An older friend and I occasionally commiserate about how aging is not only a bummer but sometimes literally painful. His shoulder is forever hurting from decades of baseball/softball and my ever-warping arthritic fingers wake me up at night with shooting pains. But we both agree that there’s something Father Time has not snatched from us yet – the joy of eating. When together, we eat chicken strips and hamburgers and enchiladas and ice cream and other manna from heaven. The Bride lies to me sometimes, I’m sure. She says that salads taste good. I think women make that claim because there’s something in their DNA that says they must say that, like cooing over clearly ugly babies or touching every rack at Kohl’s.

I say salad is not tasty. I confess, my diet is terrible. Still, with a beach vacation slated for late summer, I’m eyeing getting into better shape, to ON YOUR promising don a SpeeMARK do thong. (I know if Mark K. Campbell don’t that exists but there’s some money to be made there, gag money – in every sense of the word.) My way of losing weight drives the Bride crazy. It’s very low carb and anti-sugar – sadly my two favorite things in the world.

But I abstain, run some extra miles, and, voila!, I can get 10 pounds off in a couple of weeks. The best part is breakfast which consists of four or five eggs and 10 or so pieces of bacon. This mortifies the Bride who will nibble on the edge of a bagel and, perhaps, ingest some free-range oatmeal with some sort of organic fruit atop it. Even more frustrating for my beloved is that such crazy eating – gallons of diet Coke and the majority of a pig some days – does not affect my medical numbers in the least. Cholesterol? No problem, well under suggested guidelines. Triglycerides which should be in six digits by the amount of sugar I normally gobble daily? Perfect. To exact her revenge, the Bride will not acquiesce to my suggestions that she work out a little. She will not exer-

cise and doesn’t have to. God loves us all but some more than others, apparently, judging by the fact that she looks super with such little physical effort. After surviving the High Impact Aerobics Plague of the 1980s, she eschews all exercising. She’s one of those who gets her workout by gardening and “moving around a lot.” So, I run then eat Blue Bell. She Facebooks and has celery. The Bride is especially leery of my intake of fake foods. Around her, I’ll pretend to eat some “good” food; I can choke down “spring mix” salad, whatever that is. Then, when the Bride is out of town, I’ll visit my secret love: the Velveeta and shell macaroni in the cupboard. Oh, baby! Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and the lady in the donut shop was worried when he had not been seen in there recently.

Saying goodbye to a fetching friend

A Letter to the editor America proving it’s a paper tiger Dear Editor: Elections have consequences as current events take shape. Remember that political commercial about the 3 a.m. world crisis phone call? Well, sad to say, that moment has arrived with President Obama and that hegemony ambitious Russian leader Vladimir Putin who seems to be like a Georgia gnat in your eyes. When the world awoke to Russian troops invading the Crimea region of

the Baltics on Feb. 28, Putin tested that broken record “red line in the sand” said by President Obama who vowed that anyone who crosses it will get a good, old-fashioned “can of whoop butt” opened on them. First, I’m quite sure that Putin is shaking in his boots given the lack of credibility that Mr. Obama and company have shown that our “paper tiger” nation is all bark, no bite. Remember in April 2013 President Obama warned North Korea not to test fire a nuclear missle over the Sea of Japan. Guess who blinked first: Barack Obama did. North Korea launched and laughed

all the way back to the Korean Peninsula of Pyongyank with Mr. Obama looking like a deer caught in the head lamps. Now, the best for last: When Mr. Obama warned the despot of Syria, President al-Assad, of using chemical weapons on his own people that he was going to send in the Sixth Fleet with all its might to dismantle the chemicals, that old KGB nemesis Mr. Putin put a cork in Mr. Obama and took over and shielded the Syrian president. After all, it’s his ally. Joseph L. Bryan Fort Worth

George Eastman made picture-taking available to everyone

G

eorge Eastman, the subject of this week's column, was not a Western man, but he perhaps made possible the earliest tourist photographs of the American West. Born in Waterville, NY in 1854, George lived on the family farm until they all moved to Rochester in 1860 where his father began a business college. Unfortunately, the elder Eastman died when George was seven. His mother had to take in boarders to survive. George dropped out of school at 14 to help his mother. He earned $3 a week at his first job. He worked as a messenger boy at the Rochester Savings Bank and eventually became a bookkeeper there after studying accounting. At age 24, he purchased his first camera, one of those that had to have a pedestal, wet plates, etc. The process was clumsy and needed too much equipment to be carried along. Once when he was going on an overnight trip to take photographs, the

THE

chemicals got on all his clothes. George began experimenting with ways to simplify the process. He read that English photographers used plates coated with a gelatin substance that remained sensitive even when dry, rather than having to be exposed wet. At first he did this for his own photographs, but he realized that others, especially commercial photographers, could use the idea. While still working at the bank in the daytime, he experimented at home in his mother's kitchen at night. He coated the plates with gelatin and silver bromide, doing away with wet glass plates. In April 1880, he used some money he had saved and leased the third floor of a building in Rochester and began manufacturing dry plates. He had some failures and close calls, but finally he gained a small, sales market. Then he turned to simplifying the process even more. He created a film rolled on spools by 1884. Eastman knew he needed to make a product that would sell to the general public. He created a small and easy to

carry camera that would hold the roll of film. He wanted a catchy name. He liked the letter “K” because it sounded strong. He tried a lot of combinations and “Kodak” was result. By PAGES FROM the 1888 he had his WESTERN box camera and name for HISTORY his it. The camera J’Nell L. Pate and a 100-exposure roll of film sold for $25. When all the film was exposed, the customer must mail the camera back to the company (not called Eastman Kodak until 1892) with $10. Soon the amateur photographer received back his pictures and camera loaded with another roll of film. Eventually the company created a daylight-loading film and camera

that did not need to be mailed back to the factory. New phrases entered the common vocabulary: “going Kodaking," and a “Kodak moment,” the latter meaning a personal or public event that just had to be recorded for posterity. His rolls of film helped create the motion picture industry, beginning in1888. One of its early proponents was Thomas Edison. During World War II Eastman wanted to help the war effort, so in cooperation with the Army he set up a training school of photography in Rochester. He gave each cadet who attended a folding camera and four more to take home to friends. This had an impact locally because cadets at Barron Field, near present Everman south of Fort Worth, took aerial photographs of downtown in 1917-1918 that later proved valuable in many ways, especially real estate development. During his lifetime Eastman was generous with his money as well as his cameras. He gave millions of dollars to the University of Rochester and the

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the latter anonymously. He also gave money to two black colleges in the South. Eastman never married. His home in Rochester became the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in 1949. Although Eastman Kodak held an 89 percent market share of film sales as late as 1976, the company was slow to transition to digital photography even though they invented some of the technology for digital cameras. They had to declare bankruptcy, but emerged from it in 2013 and now focus on both personal and document imaging. As for George Eastman, he began having health problems and shot himself in the heart on March 14, 1932, leaving a note: “To my friends: My work is done. Why wait?”

Federal court rules on same-sex marriage

I

n the final week before Tuesday, March 4, Primary Election Day, candidates put on final pushes in hopes of getting enough votes to be their party’s nominee for the general election in November. A ruling by a San Antonio federal court on Feb. 26 moved a hot-button issue front and center, giving candidates a lastminute opportunity to delineate their stand. In a case brought by two same-sex couples, San Antonio U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia declared unconstitutional the Texas law and a related state constitutional amendment that prohibit samesex marriage and the recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages. On page 46 of his ruling, Garcia wrote, “Equal treatment of all individuals under the law is not merely an aspiration — it is a constitutional mandate. Consequently, equal protection is at the heart of our legal system and is essential for the ex-

istence of a free society.” Right away, however, Garcia placed a stay on his order preventing the state from enforcing those laws, pending an appeal filed by the Texas attorney general’s office in the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Gov. Rick Perry reacted, saying, “It is not the role of the federal government to overturn the will of our citizens. The 10th Amendment guarantees Texas voters the freedom to make these decisions and this is yet another attempt to achieve via the courts what couldn’t be achieved at the ballot box.” Texas Roman Catholic Bishops issued a joint statement expressing disappointment in the court’s decision. There are “good, well-meaning people” on both sides of the issue, said Texas Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott. But, he added, “The Texas Constitution defines marriage as between one man and one woman. If the Fifth Circuit honors those

p r e c edents, then tod a y ’s decision should be overturned and the Texas Constitution will STATE be upheld.” CAPITAL Te x a s HIGHLIGHTS D e m o Ed Sterling cP raart ti yc Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa, in a statement released after Judge Garcia’s ruling, said: “The Texas Democratic Party believes that everyone should have the right to be with the person they love and we look forward to the day in Texas when everyone can marry who they love. This is a historic day for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual) community and the state of Tex-

as. As Dr. (Martin Luther) King (Jr.) once stated, ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’ Today, all Texans can celebrate that we are one step closer to justice and equality for all.” Awareness day is proclaimed Gov. Perry proclaimed Feb. 27 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day in Texas, saying the key “to preventing and ending this horrible crime is public awareness that millions still suffer exploitation around the nation and the world.” He urged Texans to join him “in bringing awareness to this important issue as we continue to fight to bring justice to human trafficking offenders, and help to their victims.” Schools achieve progress State Comptroller Susan Combs on Feb. 26 called attention to the new “Financial Allocation Study for Texas” available at the website fastexas.org which shows an increase

in school districts earning the highest ranking of five stars. “FAST” was created by the comptroller’s office in response to 2009 legislation directing the agency to “identify school districts and campuses that use resource allocation practices that contribute to high academic achievement and cost-effective operations.” “I am pleased to see more schools being better stewards of our citizens’ tax dollars while achieving better academic outcomes,” Combs said. Chair lauds pipeline progress Barry Smitherman, Texas Railroad Commission chairman and Republican candidate for the office of Texas attorney general, spoke in Beaumont Feb. 26 in a ceremony marking the “start of operation” of TransCanada’s Gulf Coast Pipeline Project. “On behalf of the Texas Railroad Commission and the people of Texas, I welcome the Gulf Coast Pipeline project and look forward to hearing

that the Keystone XL Pipeline, its northern leg, is approved as soon as possible in Washington, D.C.” A presidential permit has not been granted to complete the project. Interim charges announced Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst on Feb. 26 publicized interim charges for the Senate Committee on Criminal Justice. Dewhurst, who presides over the Senate and is campaigning to be the Republican Party’s nominee for lieutenant governor in the November general election, asked the committee to study and make recommendations on “health within the prison system” and “jail diversion for mentally ill” before the next Texas Legislature convenes in regular session in January 2015. Veteran state reporter and legislative analyst Ed Sterling is member services director for the Texas Press Association, whose 518 member newspapers have combined circulation of 3.7 million.

Soccer squads are already playoff bound

by MARK K. CAMpbeLL These are heady times for Azle High School soccer. Both teams are near the top of the standings – the boys are the District 12-4A leaders – and the postseason already looms for each. In the two most recent matches, both boys and girls varsities shut out Saginaw Chisholm Trail and Mineral Wells. The girls beat the Lady Rough Riders 1-0 and blanked the Lady Rams 3-0 at home Feb. 28. Those wins kept AHS right behind Boswell in the standings race. Azle (13-3-2, 8-1-1) faced Boswell in Saginaw Tuesday, Mar. 4 (results not available at press time). Earlier, AHS coach Trent Davis said if his Lady Hornets could win out, Azle would win the district title – a preseason goal for the team. Before the BHS match, BoTwo more victories by Kaycee Moore (22) and the Lady Hornets – both shutouts – kept Azle near the top of the District 12-4A soccer standings. The playoffs loom for the boys’ and girls’ AHS squads. Photo by Mark K. Campbell swell led the district with 27

points. Azle was second with 25 and the only 12-4A team to beat the Lady Hornets, Aledo, sat third with 24 points. In any event, the girls are playoff bound. So are the boys, after romping Chisholm Trail 6-0 and Mineral Wells 7-0. Three matches remain for both AHS squads. Brewer, still battling for a postseason berth, comes to Hornet Field Friday, Mar. 7. The final away match sends Azle to Saginaw before the regular season finale against cellar-dwelling Springtown. That last March 18 game will be Senior Night for Azle. AHS teams will face squads out of neighboring District 114A in the playoffs. In that group are powerful teams from Nelson, Argyle, and Denton Guyer. So, finishing high in 12-4A is a priority for Azle squads. Historically, AHS postseason wins are rare – for now.

Softball Lady Hornets tangle with foes at College Station Azle sees tough teams on road trip Supposedly, Aledo didn’t want to face the Lady Hornet softball team in consecutive weeks. Since the Lady Cats were due to play Azle at Brewer, Aledo pulled out. However, the teams did clash hundreds of miles away in College Station Feb. 27. And the Lady Hornets won, 6-3. On Feb. 27 in the opening game of a tournament in Central Texas, Azle played not only Aledo but several top notch squads, including LaGrange, Garrison, and Round Rock Westwood. AHS lost the LaGrange game 2-1 with both teams scoring in the sixth inning. The Lady Hornets defeated Garrison 104. Westwood edged Azle 4-3 in College Station. Azle’s lone senior, Taylor Anderson, slides safely into home. The Lady Hornets AHS entered the tournament played at College Station Feb. 27-Mar. 1. Photo by Mark K. Campbell ranked No. 12 in 4A in Texas.

AHS ace Makenzi Harris is also one of Azle’s top hitters this season. Photo by Mark K. Campbell However, the latest Texas Girls Coaches Association poll does not show Azle ranked because the organization does not have the Lady Hornets’ official record. Brewer, led by former longtime AHS coach Vera Ortega, is also ranked, right behind Azle, but no other 5-4A squads received recognition. The tournament concluded the preseason stretch of AHS’

schedule. District play began at Trophy Club Byron Nelson March 4, (results not available at press time). On Friday, March 7, Azle hosts Lake Dallas, the first of 4-of-5 games the Lady Hornets will play at home. The third of that AHS campus stretch is Brewer. All varsity games are slated to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Azle riding baseball tourney roller coaster Another tournament, another slew of games bunched together. And that’s okay by Hornet coach Anthony Barron. Azle (4-8) split six games in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw tournament Feb. 27-Mar. 1. The tourney began with a 10-9 win over Mansfield Summit; AHS scored six runs over the final two innings to snatch away the victory. Four Hornets had 2 RBI each: Logan Woody, Jesse Salisbury, Tommy Kay, and Trevor Boiles. Trey Ramos scored 3 runs. In a 6-5 loss to Boswell, Josh Hilton led the Hornets with 2 RBI as Azle managed just 4 hits. The next day, Feb. 28, AHS beat Fort Worth Trimble Tech, Hornet Trey Ramos walloped a grand slam in a big win 4-3, again scoring late, winning over Saginaw. Photo by Mark K. Campbell in the final inning.

Sean Townsend doubled and scored twice. He got his second win of the tourney, saving the Summit game and the Tech contest. Woody picked up 2 Hornet runners with 2 hits. In a slugfest, Azle beat Saginaw 15-10, scoring 6 runs in the last frame. Ramos had a huge game with a grand slam, 6 RBI, 3 hits and 3 runs scored. Hilton went 3-for-4 and Boiles had 3 ribbies. Chisholm Trail topped Azle 7-2 on March 1. Hilton again had 2 RBI. In the tourney finale, Mansfield Legacy used a 6-run first to stop AHS 8-2. Boiles hit safely twice.

JV Hornets play in Keller The AHS JV baseball squad headed to Keller for a tournament as February ended. In an unusual event for a hardball tourney, the junior varsity tied half of its games.

Robinson turned in a stellar effort from the mound, coach Barron said. The young hurler pitched 8 innings with 4 strikeouts and allowed just a pair of walks and 4 hits. Robinson also perserved the

Movie Man

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Groovy hippie Jesus a Hollywood throwback We've discussed before about great untapped movie audiences – Hispanics and Christians to name a couple. The former is proving its clout with recent Spanishspeaking movies becoming successes in America, like Instructions Not Included which made a whopping $44.5 million in the U.S. last fall. The latter (to which the Movie Man belongs) is more fi ckle. We made The Passion of the Christ (2004, Movie Man No. 549, an 8) the biggest moneymaking R-rated movie of alltime. But that was actually a wellmade, professional film. Too often, “Christian movies” are mediocre productions at best (Fireproof, The Nativity Story [2006, MM #694, 6]) or just bad (The Omega Code [1999, MM #310, 4]) and they succeed mainly through DVD sales and study guides to evangelical groups. Christians hunger for another Passion of the Christ. Son of God is not it. But a couple of movies coming later this year just might be.

liberties being taking to make Moses’ tale cinematic. There is also already substantial grumbling about Noah, which boasts a great trailer. Groups that proclaim that “the King James was good enough for my Granny and it's good enough for me!” and that rock 'n' roll is “the devil's music” are locking and loading for Noah. You can imagine fundamentalist concerns when director Darren Aronofsky says he sees Noah as “a dark character with survivor's guilt” – hey, that's not in the Bible! As with Exodus, Noah should be eye-popping on the big screen; Aronofsky made Black Swan (2010, MM #914, 6) and a movie that always lands on the wow-that-wasfreaky-and-I-never-want-tosee-it-again list, Requiem for a Dream (2000, and not for the timid). Russell Crowe seems like a good choice for Noah. And a few other stars are sprinkled in – Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson.

Audience questions Geren entertained question from Rotarians. About Medicaid, Geren was quick to say, “We will not be part of Obamacare, I’ll just tell you that.” Currently, Medicaid costs 30 percent of the Texas budget and is growing, he said. Geren added that he believes some states will see their budgets busted because of Medicaid – but not Texas. The cost of fuel and gas taxes was raised. Geren said the process that sent funds from gas taxes to the Department of Public Safety has been stopped. Overall, fewer dollars are coming in via gas taxes because of more fuel efficient vehicles, natural gas vehicles, and electric cars. “We must find a way to recover those costs,” Geren said. When asked about a pair of bridges still not constructed on

Highway 199, he said the project was a priority and he was working on it.” He must work with TxDOT – Texas Department of Transportation – and arrive at new figures, Geren said. “I will work my tail off to get those bridges done,” he vowed. What about immigration? Geren said that nothing could be done about the influx of illegals across the Mexican border until it gets “sealed. Until then, we’re wasting our time. It’s a merry-go-round down there.” State representative charlie Geren discussed several statewide He added and local issues with the azle rotary club Feb. 27. that immigrants Photo by Mark K.

Future governing make up When legislators reconvene on Jan. 15, 2015 for the next regular session, the House and Senate will look quite differently than the group assembled in 2013, Geren said. Before then, there will be a new governor elected and runoffs are likely for comptroller, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, he said. “There are some good candidates. It could be May before

Upcoming issues Geren said the Texas Constitution requires a balanced budget and that will be a major focus at the new session. He added that he had some “priority items” he would assess when the House and Senate get back together. His first efforts would go toward remedying the water situation for Blue Mound, he said. Other topics he will cover next year include public education, transportation, and “dark money.” Public education will always be a priority for him, Geren said. “Dark money” is a concern, the rep said. Geren said recent negative political advertisements were funded by “dark money” – con-

tributions from unnamed sources to campaigns. He said he would work toward a process that would require all “dark money” sources be identified. That’s currently a requirement for political action committees and labor unions. Some “dark money” is coming from other states. He said gambling interests from Oklahoma and Las Vegas spend funds here to make sure Texas does not permit gambling. Not that gambling has much of a chance of happening in the state right now: “It will not pass until Texas is strapped for cash.”

Hwy. 51

The last session Still, there were positives, he said – like the restoring of some money to education and the passage of a water bill. He said he was pleased that military veterans can now avoid having to serve one-year apprenticeships for specific jobs when soldiers return to civilian lives. “That took six years to pass,” he said. Geren noted that he was proud that he got a three percent increase to retired teachers’ pensions, the first since 2001. He said he oversaw the approval of a new coliseum for Fort Worth. Geren noted the Rainy Day Fund still bulges with $8 billion.

we know,” he said, quickly adding, “Texas is not turning blue any time soon.” Geren addressed the growing Hispanic population in Texas and its potential effect on voting. Locally, the Castleberry school district is comprised of 64 percent Hispanics. In the Azle ISD, that number is 16 to 17 percent and rising about one percent a year, Dr. Ray Lea said from the audience. In the 2012 presidential race, 40 percent of Hispanics voted, but that number was only 22 percent in Texas. However, that number will surely rise, Geren said. “They will be a strong force in the future,” he said. “Texas will have a different face than it does today.”

Hwy. 51

by mark k. campbell At the Feb. 27 meeting of the Azle Rotary Club, State Representative Charlie Geren discussed a variety of topics. A member of the club, Geren took to the podium and initially recapped the previous legislative session, one he deemed “tough, fun, and frustrating.”
