Indoor Drumline scores big win
Foam for the Flames
1st at Houston regional competition BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Members of Azle High School’s Indoor Drumline – and their director, Richard Kearns – are spending Spring Break in an unusual location. It’s called Cloud Nine. The merry band of percussionists returned just before sunrise Sunday from a huge win at the Winter Guard International (WGI) Regional Competition in Houston Saturday, March 8. “This was by far the biggest day...the greatest accomplishment this drumline has ever had,” Kearns said. PLEASE SEE INDOOR, PAGE 2A.

The pickup caught fi re Wednesday, March 3, about 6:30 p.m. as its driver and two passengers were northbound on FM 730 North, just north of the Sandy Beach Road intersection.

Circus attracts thousands Big Top stands tall at city’s center BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN The fl ags above the Big Top caught the attention of almost 3,000 people Monday, marking the greatest attendance of the Carson & Barnes Circus in Azle’s history. Beth Crowe, executive director for the Azle Area Chamber of Commerce, said the event was a success – and a lot of fun for everyone. “We had really nice, beautiful weather and that made everyone happy,” Crowe said. “Of course, it was Spring Break, and I think that helped with attendance, as well.” Those patrons were treated to a good, old-fashioned circus complete with elaborate costumes, skilled performers, clowns, and animals ranging from trained dogs and horses to the most traditional symbol of the circus, the elephants.
During intermission, kids and adults alike were even able to ride the elephants. Crowe said the staff and everyone associated with the circus were very good to work with. “They were all over any issue that came up – very accommodating and very attentive to people on the lot,” Crowe said of Carson & Barnes’ personnel. “They were concerned for the safety of the patrons and they were also very conscientious about the cleanliness of the grounds.” Four people protested alleged cruelty to some circus animals near the front entrance to the circus on Roe Street. Azle police were called and no incidents occurred as a result of the protesters. In addition to the Chamber, sponsors of the circus were Brookshire’s, CashAmerica Pawn, Classic Green, Pinnacle Bank, and Star Bank of Texas.
It’s not every day that you can ride atop an elephant in Azle. But plenty of folks did when a circus came to town March 10. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

Indoor Drumline places 1st at regional n INDOOR, FROM PAGE ONE.
Last year, the group competed at WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio, where it placed 17th. Not a bad first outing, but Kearns says winning first place against some of the largest schools in Texas – many of whom have been competing at this level for years – is really an even greater achievement. “We were actually in first place after the preliminaries, which meant we got to perform last in the finals,” Kearns explained. “It was fun telling the kids we were going into the finals in first place – they couldn’t believe we were first against schools like Lake Travis and Clearbrook, who’ve been at this a long time.” The Azle Drumline’s competition show for this season brought a positive, patriotic message centered around a revolution that overthrows an evil dictator in the United States 200 years in the future, Kearns said. “Without being a spoiler, we’ve developed that overthrow into a huge theatrical moment,” Kearns says. “I’ll just say it ends just like you want it to – with a very positive message and a really strong crowd connection.
The crowd response in Houston was just fantastic.” In fact, for Kearns, it was a comment from the chief judge after the competition that had him walking on air. “He told us what a fan he is of the Azle Drumline, having watched our earlier shows and how we’ve progressed,” Kearns said. “He said he was actually disappointed we are not going to Daytona (for WGI Worlds) this year because he thought this show would do quite well there.” The top schools in the WGI Regionals were separated by mere points on a 100 point scale, Kearns said, making it a very close competition. Cy-Fair High School, who finished just behind Azle in second place, was only onehalf point behind, according to Kearns. The drumline has one more circuit competition on its schedule, but it’s one that will determine the performance order for the upcoming Texas Color Guard Circuit (TCGC) Championships. The score from WGI Regionals as well as the next competition are averaged; the group with the highest average gets
to perform last – a huge advantage – and the schedule goes in reverse order from there. Then the Azle Drumline will give an exhibition performance at the North Texas Championships to be held at Colleyville Heritage High School March 21. They are not competing at that event, however. The next and final competition of the season will be the TCGC Championships slated for April 5 in Reed Arena at Texas A&M University in College Station. “That’s an even bigger venue than Daytona,” Kearns said. Prior to TCGC Championships, there’s an opportunity for Azle folks to see how far the show has been developed since a Jan. 30 preview. A Friends and Family performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, March 24 in the AHS gym. But wait! There’s a bonus! The Azle Drumline will share the gym floor with the AHS Winter Guard for the Friends and Family performance. The Winter Guard is on track for a great year, as well, and readers can look forward to an in-depth story about that group’s achievements this season soon.

City of Azle, TX GO Bond Rating Raised Two Notches to ‘AA’ Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services (S&P) has raised its long-term rating and underlying rating (SPUR) on the City of Azle, Texas’ general obligation (GO) bonds outstanding to ‘AA’ from ‘A+’. The higher rating reflects the City’s financial strength and overall credit worthiness. According to S&P, factors contributing to the rating increase include a strong local economy, very strong liquidity position, and strong management practices. Higher bond ratings allow the City to obtain lower interest rates when borrowing money for long-term needs as necessary. Since 2003, the City’s bond rating has increased six notches to ‘AA’ from ‘BBB’. The ‘AAA’ bond rating is the highest rating given by S&P and is only two notches higher than the rating assigned to the City of Azle.
Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Awarded to the City of Azle The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the City of Azle by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for the year ended September 30, 2012. This is the tenth consecutive year that the City has received this prestigious award. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management. The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the Certificate of Achievement program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR. The award is valid for a period of one year. In order to be awarded the Certificate of Achievement, a government must publish an easy to read and efficiently organized report. The City believes that the CAFR for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 meets the standards to qualify for a Certificate of Achievement and has submitted it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another certificate.

The sixth annual promotion will be held March 17–23.
Officials from Pelican Bay answered questions and concerns at a Town Hall meeting hosted by Lighthouse Harbor Church and Pastor Glyn Murphy Tuesday, March 4, at the church. Attendance was light, but Murphy said he believed citizens were generally happy with the answers they got, and even had some good ideas and some sincere thanks to add to the mix.

Senior Spotlight by darlene holmes We really received lots of nice items in the bags and boxes of stuff from the Food Bank last Friday. I think everyone left happy. There was some good stuff left for Food Bank Bingo also. Our No SCS Hot Meal Day for March was Tuesday, March 11 and we played Food Bank Bingo, too. Our next No SCS Meal Day will be Monday, March 24 and we’ll play White Elephant Bingo that day, as well. You still need to bring a White Elephant gift to play. If you win, you can choose which you want – a gift or a grocery bag left from Food Bank Day. The SCS Annual Food Handlers Class and the Volunteer Class will be this Friday, March 14. The Volunteer Class will be first so those who don’t wish to help work in the kitchen and serve lunch may leave after the Volunteer Class is over. Jill Roe is our secretary on the Center Council and she recently drew up a form and passed out to the seniors to ask what kinds of activities they’d like to start doing. She is compiling the results and will get back to us soon. There were some pretty good ideas if the seniors will get up out of their chairs and participate in them. We’re also open to more suggestions. Drop by for a cup of coffee and pick up the March menu

Local artists help fill local food pantry shelves Three Azle area artists are taking part in Empty Bowls of Fort Worth, a fundraiser that benefits the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB). That trio: Ken Orr, Pam Summers, and Raymond Rains. The TAFB distributes fresh, frozen, and nonperishable groceries to charities in 13 coun-
ties, including Azle’s Community Caring Center, Cindy Bishop Ministries, the Azle Senior Center, Inasmuch Pantry at Eagle Mountain Lake Methodist Church, and the Azle ISD’s BackPack for Kids program that services seven elementary schools and both junior highs. Orr is a ceramic artist who
creates bowls and other objects from his Azle shop, Ken Orr Pottery Studios. Summers and Rains work out of their Cliff House Studio at Eagle Mountain. Summers is a ceramic artist and Rains works in glass. Every dollar spent at Empty Bowls allows the TAFB to pro-
vide food for five meals. Empty Bowls Fort Worth – An Artful Food Bank receives and sells over 2,500 bowls from professional, student, and recreational artisans. Some bowls are signed by celebrities like Bob Newhart and Miranda Lambert. The event is set for Thurs-
day, March 27 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Amon G. Carter Exhibition Hall at Will Rogers Memorial Center, 3401 West Lancaster. Patrons select a bowl then dine on soups and desserts from a variety of North Texas restaurants. Tickets are not available on
the day of the event. Individual admission ducats are $35. A $135 VIP ticket permits early admission. A raffle will also be conducted. For more information contact Andrea Helms of the TAFB, 817-332-9177 or visit www. tafb.org.
Three lauded by Azle Rotary Club by mark k. campbell A trio of Azle High School seniors was named Rotary Club Students of the Month at the March 6 meeting. Selected by the committee were Caitlin Latta, Samuel Hinckley, and Kayleigh Mize. Latta is very close to her high school goal of finishing in the top 10 percent of her class. Currently, she is ranked No. 38 out of 358 in the Class of 2014. Upon graduation, she hopes to become a paramedic by taking classes through Tarrant County College. She has been a member of the A honor roll since she ar-
rived at AHS. Latta became a PAL – Peer Assistance & Leadership – as a junior. She said math is her strong subject. Hinckley, at No. 31 in his class, is on pace to achieve his goal of graduating “distinguished.” Aside from being a member and national officer of the National Society Children of the American Revolution, Hinckley is not only a Briar Volunteer Fire Department firefighter but also a board member. Scholastically, he takes Advanced Placement classes and
plans to achieve his basic college requirements at TCC then pursue a degree at the University of North Texas with a focus on insurance. Mize ranks No. 19 in the Class of 2014 with a GPA of over 100. When younger, she had the highest GPA at Silver Creek and The Rock Elementary Schools. Recently accepted to Baylor where she will study computer science, Mize said her strongest subject is math. She, too, is a member of PAL and has an affinity for art and drawing, she said.

Texas Health Azle lauded for community well-being initiatives Another month, another honor for Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle (THAZ). Members of the Transforming Texas and Healthy Education and Lifestyles Program (HELP) at THAZ have been recognized for their continuing efforts to increase community wellness. Recently, employees from the Transforming Texas grant program traveled to Washington, D.C while HELP employees motored to Atlanta, Georgia where they were recognized for their efforts to enhance overall well-being for residents of Azle and surrounding communities. Program specialists with the Transforming Texas grant at THAZ joined more than 2,500 substance abuse prevention specialists from across the country for the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s (CADCA) annual forum where they were recognized for establishing com-
munity gardens and food hubs. The two programs partner with community members to help provide Azle and surrounding communities with low-cost, easy-to-access fresh produce. Additionally, the HELP program at THAZ was one of five finalists nationwide for the Jackson Health Care Charitable Services Award, which recognizes health care organizations whose outreach programs make charitable commitments to help promote health and wellness in the local community. HELP was recognized among this year’s finalists for its efforts to both identify and satisfy community health needs through educational services, health screenings, and support groups. “Texas Health Azle is on a mission to improve the health and well-being of the people in the communities we are privileged to serve,” said Bob Ellzey,

hospital president. “We are proud to be recognized as a leader in helping people transform their lives to enjoy better health.” Since its inception, Transforming Texas has launched programs geared toward increasing community well-being. In addition to creating tobacco-free environments and community food hubs and gardens, Transforming Texas also provides access to free chronic dis-

Horton and her family are longtime residents of Azle.

The crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe
used to know music. These days, too often, I just know about music. Usually, I’ll pass on those Facebook dealies where you list your favorite books or movies or desserts. But I filled one out: “Name your 10 favorite albums of all-time.” And, as I suspect is often the case with most folks, all the records came from a small time frame from my youth. They were: 10. The Captain and Me, Doobie Brothers, 1973 9. The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, 1975 8. Abbey Road, The Beatles, 1969 7. Band on the Run, Paul McCartney, 1973 6. Viva Terlingua!, Jerry Jeff Walk-
er, 1973 5. Automatic for the People, R.E.M., 1992 4. Don McLean, Don McLean, 1972 3. Apostrophe, Frank Zappa, 1974 2. The White Album, The Beatles, 1968 1. My Aim Is True, Elvis Costello, 1977 You don’t have to be the Mentalist to figure out the pattern here. Except for R.E.M. in 1992, all those LPs are pretty closely packed together – 1968 to ‘77 when I was ages 12 to 21. (Automatic for the People threw me for a loop – just like My Aim Is True did; I’d never heard anything like them at the time.) Music not only becomes a soundtrack to your life and that of your friends but becomes part of the actual conversation
between you and your buddies. That’s why my pal Steve and I enjoyed private chuckles by saying “Is that a Sear’s poncho or a real pancho?” And: ON YOUR “The crux of the biscuit is MARK the apostroMark K. Campbell phe.” Those lines are off the wonderfully weird Apostrophe; that latter one is from “Stinkfoot” which I thought, at age 18 and a freshman at UT, was the funniest/greatest
thing in the history of music. Today, because of geezers like me, classic rock stations are popular. My first music choice is always Lone Star 92.5. Like every young person, I was never gonna stop rockin’! I was gonna rock all night and party every day! Now it’s more like get up and use the bathroom several times all night and go to work every day. My daughters came along and, in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, I showed how cool I was by liking Ace of Base and New Kids on the Block and Alanis Morrisette. And, yo! VIP!, I could bust a move on you with some funky cold medina, too. But the girls grew up and went away and I found more comfort in Van Halen than Coldplay, in Grand Funk than
Arctic Monkeys. I know about today’s music. It’s Auto-Tuned and sold in a variety of formats and kids still love songs. Katy Perry’s out there and Miley Cyrus, but I barely know any of their music. Which is good because a 57-yearold grandpa erupting in “Roar” would surely mortify across every age group. About the only recent music I have a copy of is Adele’s latest record. And it’s great. So I’m not one of those guys saying music has been terrible since 1989. Every generation has its take-that-oldfogies! music trend. That’s just youth. And that, my friends, is the crux of the biscuit. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and No. 11 on the list would be the first Cars album (1978), which he just bought again.

Letters to the editor President deserves no R-E-S-P-E-C-T Dear Editor: Remember the TV series Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? Perhaps Azle fifth graders are indeed smarter than the President of the United States. As seen on Fox News March 7, a gala jubilee was held at the White House on March 6 by President Obama honoring soul singer Aretha Franklin and others. The president – with all his ego and narcissism in draw – sauntered onstage and imitatively tried to mimic Franklin’s 1967 empowerment anthem “RE-S-P-E-C-T.” Everything was going smoothly for Mr. Obama until he got
to the word “respect.” Then we see another factual moment of just what a fraud Mr. Obama is: He goes into that thousand mile stare and unsuccessfully tries to spell the iconic lyric by saying “R-uh!-SP-E-C-T” with virtually everyone not laughing with him but at him. We all know the liberal voting base and mainstream media reports that Mr. Obama is the smartest man to occupy the Oval Office. Isn’t this the same guy who said in 2008, “I have now been to all 57 states in my campaign?” Wake up, America. You’ve been hosed big time by Mr. Obama. And, yes, any Azle fifth grader can correctly spell the word “respect” and unequivocally and without mental reservation point out that there are 50 states, not 57. Joseph L. Bryan Fort Worth

A freed slave works way to gold fields and riches
ith the movie 12 Years a Slave winning the Best Picture Academy Award last week, perhaps it is appropriate to tell another true story of a free black person in the 19th century, Clara Brown. Illiterate, she didn't write her own story as Solomon Northrup did. No one knows what happened to Northrup following the regaining of his freedom after twelve years, but “Aunt” Clara's 85 years of life are generally known. Born a slave near Fredericksburg, Virgina in 1800, Clara lived and worked with her mother for an owner named Ambrose Smith. When Clara was nine years old, Smith carried his slaves to Kentucky where she worked in the tobacco fields. When she was 18, her owner allowed her to marry another slave named Richard. They had four children, Richard, Jr., Margaret, and twins Paulina Ann and Eliza Jane. Tragically Paulina accidentally
drowned at age eight. More sadness came in 1835 after their owner died, because all his slaves were lined up and sold at auction, thus separating the little family. Whether Clara was passed from owner to owner in the following years is unclear, but in 1856 her owner at the time, George Brown, died. He provided in his will that Clara be freed. She worked for a merchant for a while, and in Leavenworth, Kansas, she ran a laundry. By 1859 many people were passing through Kansas on their way West to prospect for gold in Colorado. Somehow she got the idea that a member of her long-lost family might be in Colorado, so she decided to go. She had earned enough money to buy a stagecoach ticket, but black people were not allowed to travel with whites on stagecoaches. Always willing to work, she got a job with a group of prospectors to cook for them on the 700-mile trip. Besides preparing all the meals, she had to walk most of the way. Unfortunately, Clara did not find
any of her family in Denver. She followed prospectors to Central City in the spring of 1860 where she opened the first laundry business. She planned to earn enough money so that PAGES FROM she could use to find her WESTERN itfamily. Besides HISTORY the laundry, she cooked for peoJ’Nell L. Pate ple for special occasions, and expanded her business with partners. She also acted as a mid-wife before the town attracted a doctor. By 1865 when the Civil War ended, and slaves were being freed, she had saved enough money to go back to the East. She traveled to Tennessee

and Kentucky, but her search failed to find her family. Instead, she found some distant relatives and other former slaves and paid to resettle them in Colorado. Her own life there became one of helping people. Sick or injured prospectors, white or black, could call on her for help. Because of her kindnesses, people she had helped assisted her with investments in various mining ventures. “Aunt” Clara was worth $10,000, which in today's money would represent nearly $200,000. Obviously, she got rich in the gold fields. She reportedly owned sixteen lots in Denver, seven houses in Central City, and property and mines in Boulder, Georgetown, and Idaho Springs. When a flood and a fire destroyed some of her property, her friends helped her rebuild. They also wrote letters back East for her through the years to help her look for her family. In 1882, 47 years after her family had all been separated and sold, Clara learned of a black woman named Eli-

za living in Iowa. She traveled there, and sure enough it was her long, lost daughter. She even met her granddaughter. Clara never found the rest of her family, but learned that her husband and other daughter had died. She never located her son. Only three years after reuniting with her daughter, Clara Brown died on October 23, 1885. She had become so well-known as a Colorado pioneer that even the mayor of Denver and the governor of the state came to her funeral. A Methodist, she helped start the first church in Central City in her home, and a plaque commemorates her on the St. James Methodist Church in that town. She had become the first African American member of the Society of Colorado Pioneers, and was never forgotten in the state's history. A stained-glass portrait of her may be seen today in the State Capitol building.

Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, got 79 percent in the Democratic primary. “Ray” Madrigal of Corpus Christi got 21 percent. In the race for lieutenant governor, state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio ran unopposed and is the Texas Democratic Party’s nominee. Her legislative resume includes eight years as a state representative and 13 years as a state senator. In November, Van de Putte’s opponent will be the winner of a May 27 runoff between incumbent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston. Dewhurst has presided over the Senate since January 2003. Patrick was first

In a field of eight Republican candidates, Cornyn received 60 percent of the vote. Coming in second was U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman of Clear Lake, with 19 percent. The top two vote getters in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate were David Alameel, a Dallas dentist, businessman and U.S. Army veteran, and political activist Kesha Rogers of Houston.

State House Ways and Means Chair Harvey Hilderbran, RKerrville, got 26 percent of the vote. Hilderbran’s second place finish in a field of four candidates earned Hilderbran the right to a runoff but announced he would forego the contest and support Hegar’s candidacy.

Former state representative Wayne Christian of Center and Ryan Sitton, an oil and gas engineer and businessman from Pasadena, were the top two GOP vote getters for Railroad Commissioner. They will vie in a May 27 runoff and the winner will face Steve Brown in the general election in November. Brown, with 64 percent, won the Democratic Party primary over Dale Henry, who tallied 36 percent. In the GOP race for chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, incumbent Nathan Hecht won with 60.5 percent over for-
mer state representative Robert Talton’s 39.5 percent. Hecht will face William Moody, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Azle boys lock down district soccer crown By MArk k. CAMPBell The Hornet soccer team has won District 12-4A with a match still remaining. After an earlier 3-1 win over Brewer and thanks to a 2-2 tie at Saginaw, Azle secured the crown Monday, March 10. “We are district champs with one game left to play,” coach Ben Buentello said. The top spot out of the district means the Hornets will face the No. 4 team out of neighboring District 11-4A in the playoffs. The girls have locked up third place in 12-4A. Entering the second round of district action, coach Trent Davis’ squad could have won the title by going unbeaten. However, a killer 1-0 loss to Boswell – the district champ – and a 1-0 edging by Brewer dropped the Lady Hornets to third behind Aledo. In the Boswell game, Davis knew a victory was essential for a shot at the district title so “we went for the win late,” he recalled. A Lady Pioneer goal with 6 minutes left was the difference. After the loss to Brewer – “We dominated possession but simply couldn’t score,” Davis said – AHS got back on the winning track with a 4-0 dashing of Saginaw. Scoring were Hayleigh Aaron, Morgan Prentice, Molly Grover, and Sheridan Rose. In bi-district, the Azle girls will see either Birdville (No. 3 Josa Gomez and the Hornets claimed the 12-4A soccer in 4A in Texas) or Denton Guy- Sarah Hall, sailing high here at Brewer, won the gold at title with a 2-2 tie against Saginaw.

Hall top vaulter again At a tough track meet at Boswell March 6, Azle athletes found themselves competing against some stout schools. Still, one Lady Hornet continued her gold-winning ways – Sarah Hall. The pole vaulter, who medaled at state in 2013, won her event again, clearing 12-6. That was the lone gold medal for the Lady Hornet varsity, coach Melody Dennis said. The coach said the 4x200 and 4x400 units both set personal bests. The coach said, “The meet was pretty tough. We didn’t win a lot in the varsity division, but almost all the runners set PRs.” At the JV level, Kaylie Peters won the high jump and Maddie Parkison set a PR in the shot. The AHS JV placed in multiple events and went on to win the team title by 25 points over Keller. The varsity boys 4x400 team won its race in a close one, 3:30.68 to 3:30.98 over Keller. At the JV level, the Hornets finished third overall. After an open stretch over Spring Break, all Azle High track teams will head to Joshua March 21-22 before the annual Hornet Relays arrive March 28.
Azle tumbles in 5-4A opener Denton Guyer came to town to open district play for the baseball Hornets. Azle led 2-1 at one time, but lost 5-2 when the Wildcats tallied 3 runs in the top of the seventh inning. Tommy Kay took the loss despite a strong outing on the mound, fanning 13 of the 17 outs he recorded. Blake Hall got the final two outs. AHS’ Jesse Salisbury plated both Hornet runners in the fifth inning. Tyler Flynn and Sean Townsend scored on Salisbury’s safety. Logan Woody led AHS in hitting with a double during a 2-for-3 outing. On March 8, Stephenville came to Jim Bob Nation’s Field of Dreams diamond in a nondistrict game. The squads went extra innings before ending in a 3-3 tie after 8 frames. Both teams scored in the first
inning with Azle claiming a 2-1 lead. Hornet head coach Anthony Barron used the game to send six pitchers to the mound: Trevor Boiles and Townsend hurled 2 innings each while Devin Oliver, Landon Pyle, Zach Tucker, and Hall went 1 apiece. That AHS sextet permitted just 4 hits, but 4 Hornet errors hurt. For Azle, Josh Hilton and Boiles got RBI. AHS played over Spring Break, traveling to Wichita Falls to face the Coyotes March 11 (results not available at press time). Azle will host Brewer Friday, March 14. Junior varsity – The JV Hornets beat Denton Guyer 4-1 in its opener. Alex Newton continued his strong season, going 2-for-3 – one hit a triple – with a pair of RBI. Logan McPherson went the distance, allowing just 5 hits Sean Townsend fires a ball home. Azle lost to Denton Guyer in the district opener and striking out 7 Wildcats. then tied Stephenville in a non-district contest. Photo by Mark K. Campbell
Ladies begin softball district play with 2 wins The under-12 TAAF regional runners-up: (l-r) assistant coach Ty Fair, Jason Jeter, Greyson Christian, Seth Winn, Braxton Thomason, Austin Womack, Causen Shafer, Payton Vaughn, head coach Brad Thomason, Mason Fair.
ACYS squads shine A pair of Azle Competitive Youth Sports teams shone in basketball. The Under-8 girls won a postseason tournament in White Settlement. The title capped an undefeated season.
With a second place finish in the Under-12 regional tournament, Azle landed a berth at the state event set for Longview. The young Hornets got edged in the title game by the No. 1 team in North Texas.
What is shaping up to be a memorable softball season got off to a superior start as district play began. Azle (16-4, 2-0), fresh off a tournament in College Station stuffed with quality teams, came back to North Texas and popped a pair of 5-4A rivals. District play opened against Byron Nelson in Trophy Club; AHS won 10-5. The Lady Hornets scored in every inning but the sixth, coach Tracy Tadlock said. Makenzi Harris took to the hill on a cold March 4 to face the talented Lady Bobcats. Tadlock said, “Nelson had a very good hitting lineup and Harris kept them in check for the most part.” She improved to 7-2 for the season. At the plate, Samantha Brad-
ley and Sarah Brown paced the AHS offense. Considering the weather, Tadlock said, “I thought we played really well.” Next, at the AHS diamond, Azle plastered Lake Dallas, 17-0 in a mercy-rule game. Bradley (9-2) allowed just 3 Lady Falcon hits while striking out 9 of the 15 visitor’s outs. At the plate, Bradley doubled and collected 2 RBI. The Lady Hornets piled up 12 – yes, 12 – first inning runs against Lake Dallas. Brown doubled twice as did Raelyn Temple. Also belting two-baggers were Bethany Phillips and Sammi Tittle. Nicole Aniasco, Temple, and Tittle had 2 RBI apiece. Others batting home runners were Brown, Phillips, and Har-
ris. The College Station tournament was a capper to non-district play. In Central Texas, Azle saw LaGrange, the No. 1 team in 3A, and fell just 2-1. Harris shone on the mound, Tadlock recalled. Bradley took a rare loss, to Round Rock Westwood, 4-3. Azle had clawed back but lost late. “Bradley deserved better than the loss,” the coach said. Azle also saw the No. 3 team in 4A, Little-Cyprus Mauriceville and lost 11-10. Defense hurt Azle in the game that went 9 innings. Tadlock said, “I think if we can shore up our defense and continue to hit the ball, we will Bekah Teel fires to first base. Photo by Mark K. Campbell be very competitive.”

Time traveling pooch will make Boomers smile It’s always tricky to mess with Baby Boomers’ beloved TV shows. Sometimes big screen versions work, sometimes they don’t. About the film The latest effort is Mr. Peabody and Sherman, part of what’s likely the single most loved cartoon for Boomers, especially the cool kids who were pre-teens in the 1960’s. That original cartoon was Rocky and His Friends that began in 1959. Bullwinkle, a dim-witted moose, had several sometimes very weird adventures with Rocky, a fl ying squirrel. Other segments showed, too. Like, Dudley DoRight, Boris and Natasha, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman. The movie versions of those Rocky and His Friends shorts weren’t great and neither was an effort to make a Bullwinkle movie. The fi rst movie wasBoris and Natasha, a 1992 live action TV movie. Starring Sally Kellerman and Dave Thomas, it faded away, forgotten. A better effort was Dudley Do-Right which contained some genuine laughs. Starring a wellcast Brendan Fraser – at the height of his powers – and Sarah Jessica Parker as the ever-inperil Nell, the film still flopped. The real biggie that many Bullwinkle devotees awaited was The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000). With Robert De Niro as the Fearless Leader, Jason Alexander (George from TV’s Seinfeld) as Boris, and Rene Russo as Natasha – as well as guest roles by Carl Reiner, Jonathan Winters, John Goodman, and Janeane Garofalo – hopes were high. Alas, it wasn’t great. With animation combined with liveaction, the madcap essence of the TV show was attempted, but it just didn’t work often enough. Still, producers took a shot that a Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie might fl y. After all,
plenty of Boomers got their early tastes of history from the genius dog, Mr. Peabody, teaching “his boy,” Sherman. All computer-generated, Mr. Peabody and Sherman is the best of the bunch so far. The plot Super intelligent dog Mr. Peabody (voiced by the funny Ty Burrell, from TV’s Modern Family) fi nds a baby in a basket and convinces a judge that “every dog should have a boy.” Soon, the kid, Sherman (Max Charles, a non-alien from TV’s The Neighbors), is old enough for school. He’s already plenty smart; after all, Mr. Peabody has developed the WABAC, a time machine that allows them to witness history first hand. At school, mean Penny (Ariel Winter, also from Modern Family) mocks Sherman for being “a dog” since his dad’s a dog. To remedy the bullying situation, Mr. Peabody invites Penny and her parents for a visit. That’s when Penny convinces Sherman to take the WABAC out for a spin. Penny almost marries King Tut. Soon, Mr. Peabody and Sherman are trying to get her back to present time before her parents know she’s missing. They need some help from Leonardo Da Vinci (Stanley

When the two time continuums threaten to merge, all the great minds in history must fi gure out how to solve the dilemma. And the guy that does…is Sherman. What works This animation is great and looks really good in 3-D. DreamWorks’ movies are usually exceptional in 3-D and this one is too.

His Friends TV show – sometimes using the exact language (like the bit about every dog having a boy). Burrell is good as Mr. Peabody. Other standouts are Allison Janney as the aggressive Ms. Gruion, a social worker, and, especially, Patrick Warburton as Greek hero Agamemnon. There are also some witty fi lm references, fromIndiana Jones to Spartacus. (That latter mention requires some deeperthan-normal film knowledge.) Some pop culture references are evident – “Don’t’ tase me, bro” – and former presidents deliver some laughs, especially
