Great Save

New construction has some perplexed BY NATALIE GENTRY Eyesore or improvement? The new fence being built near the Springtown Post Offi ce has gotten some members of the community asking questions and more than a few people upset. However, the fear that any of the businesses in the shopping center will become inaccessible can be put to rest. According to City Administrator Mark Krey, the plans submitted to the city PLEASE SEE FENCE, PAGE 3A.

The construction of a chain link fence in the 400 block of East Highway 199 has left some business owners and community members concerned about its effect on business in the area.

A homeowner arrived back at the 200 block of Pine Bluff Ridge Tuesday evening, March 25, to fi nd heavy smoke pouring out of her mobile home. La Junta, Springtown, and Reno VFD fi refi ghters arrived in time to save the home, although it did suffer heavy smoke, heat, and water damage. Investigator Lanny Padgett with the Parker County Fire Marshal’s Offi ce said the exact cause of the fi re cannot be determined. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

Please don’t stop the music SISD math and School board approves funds to update band program science teams No. 1 at regionals

BY NATALIE GENTRY Now, the Springtown ISD board has The Sound of Springtown is already voted to outfi t the district’s band program with new instruments to replace one of the top bands in the state. old and irreparable ones and to add instruments as well. The board voted to allow no more than $105,000 for the purchase of instruments. Instruments on the proposed purchase order ranged in price from $1,343 for a baritone horn to $8,343 for a sousaphone with a hard case. Many of the instruments will be used during marching band so they are needed by Aug. 1. The rest are necessary by the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. SISD Director of Fine Arts, JB Perry said that SISD Fine Arts director JB Perry and Assis- because of the age of tant Band Director Scot McPhetrige request- many of the instruments ed funds to replenish and replace aging and the growth in differinstruments in the district’s music depart- ent areas of the district’s band program, new inment, some of which are over 25-year-old. Photo by Natalie Gentry struments are needed.

Many of the instruments that are currently in the department are brands that are no longer being manufactured and have parts that are not available. In addition, Perry said that the growth in the percussion program over the past few years and the need for more students on bass instruments necessitated the purchase. “It’s at the point that students playing bass instruments are having to share,” Scot McPhetrige assistant band director said. This fact is not only a health concern, but also doesn’t provide students with the opportunity to practice at home, he noted. “Low brass is crucial to our success as a band program because it is the foundational sound that the band is built on.” Perry said. For the past six years, the district has relied on the band boosters to help purchase large equipment, but the scope of this request required an appeal to the board. “Many of the instruments that the students are using were here before I became director 25 years ago,” Perry said. “This isn’t a one- to fi ve-year budget we are asking for; it is a 10- to 20-year investment.”

15 students advancing to state BY NATALIE GENTRY The Springtown Middle School and Intermediate School Math and Science Teams fi nished the regular season very strong at the Azle Regional Qualifi er on March 8. This year, 15 students will advance to the Texas Math and Science Coaches Association (TMSCA) state meet to be held in San Antonio on April 5. In the 3A division, Springtown won the Sweepstakes award. The team also placed fi rst in calculator and second in number sense. “This program has been very strong for many years, but this is the best we’ve done,” SISD Superintendent Mike Kelley said. “The kids and coaches deserve all the recognition and appreciation we can give.” Individual awards include:

Fifth grade Jabin Burns – fi rst place in mathematics Brock Haugen – fi rst in number sense, second in science, and third in calculator Marissa Kelley – fi rst in science, second in calculator, and third in mathematics Shanna Teague – fi rst in calculator, and second in mathematics Sixth grade Preston Grippin – fi rst place in number sense, fi rst in science, and third in mathematics Carli Haugen – second in calculator and fourth in mathematics Zachary Hantschel – ninth in mathematics and tenth in science Rebecca Johnson – fourth in calculator and fifth in science PLEASE SEE MATH, PAGE 2A.

Unanimous Decision

The Reno City Council voted unanimously March 24 to pass the ordinance that increases the homestead exemptions for the disabled and those over 65. The council raised the exemption an additional $15,000; this increase makes the exemption for Reno residents equitable to those of Azle and Springtown. The council also passed the ordinance to freeze property tax values for the disabled and those over 65. Photo by Natalie Gentry

Injuries minor in 199 wreck by NATAlie GeNTRy No one was seriously hurt in a mid-morning wreck Thursday, March 20 on East Highway 199 near Rhoades Lane in Springtown. According to Texas Depart-

ment of Public Safety Trooper Simon De La Cruz, a red Toyota Tundra driven by Karl Black was in the eastbound lane turning left onto Rhoades Lane when it was struck from behind by a black Oldsmobile Alero.

De La Cruz said Autumn Thomas, the driver of the Alero, may have been distracted and didn’t see the Tundra stopped in the road. Both Black and Thomas were taken to Texas Health Azle with

non-life-threatening injuries. Amanda Arington and her 5-year-old Tobias Kirby were also passengers in the Alero but declined transport to the hospital. They later drove to Texas Health via a private vehicle.

Treatment for Different Forms of Acne Acne is a skin condition where the ends of the hair are filled with oil and dead skin cells. When the area is open at the surface, that place becomes a “blackhead”. If the ends are closed, then it is called a “whitehead”. Sometimes, the ends of the hair follicles become infected or inflamed and the lesion becomes red with a pus filled center called a pimple. Acne may affect the face, shoulders, neck and back because more oil is produced in those areas of the body. Factors that may lead to acne include an overproduction of oil and bacteria in the skin and hormonal changes. Certain medications such as corticosteroids, lithium, and testosterone therapy are reported to have the potential of increasing the risk of acne. To help prevent scarring, it is best to start treatment as early as possible. Over-the-counter (OTC) lotions that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicyclic acis, or sulfur may help treat the milder form of acne. Prescription medications like tazarotene (Tazorac) or tretinoin (Retin-A) may help prevent plugging of oil and bacteria in the hair follicles. A combination of medications may be best for severe acne. Benzoyl peroxide combined with an antibiotic clindamycin (Benzaclin) or erythromycin (Benzamycin) is available as a lotion that has been shown to help treat severe acne.

keep the access to the post office open as well as the entries near Highway 199 and at Bonnie Belle Lane. “Since the fence plans complied with our ordinance, we had to issue the permit.” Krey said. Rick Dauenhauer, owner of N.E.A. Enterprises on Bonnie Belle Lane, is one of the

community members who has voiced concern and frustration with the construction. “The fence posts have made it impossible for the 18-wheelers who deliver supplies to back up to the shop,” Dauenhauer said. “It has blocked the easement to our gate.” Dauenhauer also questioned the impression the fence will give new and perspective area business owners.

“When a new business moves to an area, one of the first places the owner goes is to the post office,” he said. “The fence isn’t very inviting and could make those people wonder about the community.” Another concern is the aesthetics value – or lack thereof – of the fence. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Owner of the Laundromat, Karl Klement, says that there is no ill intent involved in the erecting of the fence. “We’re putting up a nice black fence,” Klement said. “With the repairs to the parking lot and the addition of the fence, the area is going to look very nice.” Members of the academic team and the speech and debate team competed and placed in district competitions: (front, l-r) emily Hogan, Crystal Darnell, and alyssa Concerns regarding ac- Johns; (back) Sarah alvis, tayler Berlin, Josue ramirez, Shelby Smith, and Julia cess to the Springtown tenny.

Hello Azle and Springtown areas. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Robert Rosales and I am a Texas Licensed Auctioneer (Lic # 17184) and a Licensed Realtor in the State of Texas. I am also a proud member of the National Auctioneers Association, The Texas Auctioneers Association, as well as the National Board of Realtors. I am the owner and operator of Rocking R Auctions and Realty. We have taken over the auctions being conducted at 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. We pride ourselves in being not only a full service auction company, but a fair and honest company as well. I have been in the auction industry for more than 10 years working various positions and have been the owner/ lead auctioneer for the past 2.5 years. We do not have any connection with the last auction company that was providing auction services at this location. We do offer many different services to our clients and customers. We do have a regular 2nd Saturday Gallery Auction at 404 W Main St in Azle, TX. And if we happen to have an overflow of items (which we usually do) then we will add another auction during the month as well. But we do not only do Gallery Auctions, we also provide onsite auction services. This includes Estate, Moving, Liquidation, Farm and Ranch, Property, Multi-Parcel, Benefit and Charity Auctions. We truly believe in the Auction Method of Marketing. We are a true full service auction company. We will take care of all logistics and aspects of your auction from advertising, marketing, display, selling, and clean up. Why settle for anything less than the BEST? Our next upcoming auction will be on April 5, 2014 at 10:30am in the parking lot of 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. It will be the 1st annual Azle Spring Trunk Auction. What is a trunk auction? It is a consignment auction with a twist, be it a really fun twist. You as the consignor will load the items you want sold into the trunk of your car, the back of your SUV, or the bed of your truck. Beginning at 9:00am the morning of the auction, we will start to assign you a parking spot (first come first to be sold). Then beginning at 10:30am we will open the trunk of your car, SUV or Truck and begin selling the items from your vehicle. No reserve (or minimum bid) will be allowed to be placed on any item and we will sell them to the highest bidder. Once we finished with your vehicle, you will pull out, we will move to the next vehicle, and the next consignor in line will pull in. We will continue this until all the items in the vehicles have been sold. This is a very exciting auction for both buyers and sellers. This is because there is no preview day for this auction and everyone will be able to see what’s up for sale at the same time, even the auctioneer will not know what is going to be up for sale until it is time to auction your items. Our regular consignment auction is schedule for March 12, 2014 at 10:30am at 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. We are now taking consignments for this auction. Good items for Gallery Auctions are: Cons, Currency, Knives, Jewelry, watches, in good condition furniture, NASCAR items, Tools, Cast iron cookware, Vehicles, Trailer, Motorcycles, Travel Trailers, and coming soon our FFL so we can start to sell guns, and much more. Bad items for Gallery Auctions are: Clothes, items left over from your garage sale, DVD’s, VHS tapes, Cassette Tapes, CD’s, newspapers, ceramic figurines, broken furniture, non-complete sets of dishes and glasses, depression glass, and more. With property Auctions, we can go from signing the contract, selling the house, and funds at closing in 60 days or less. Why would you want to use the traditional method of waiting and constantly reducing your price just to get it sold sometime in the next year? Let us show you what a true professional auction company can do for you whether it’s in our gallery or on your property.

SHS students compete at state conference

So happy together Art students from SHS and SIS create a mural By Natalie GeNtry Young artists from Springtown High School (SHS) and Springtown Intermediate School (SIS) have joined forces to paint a student-created mural in the indoor archery range at SIS. “The whole project came about as a result of the creation of SIS Archery Club,” said SIS art teacher, Sharon Buell. The district found a new use for a dirty old storage room by converting it into an indoor archery range. “The only problem was that it looked really bad,” Buell said.

Students from SiS and SHS work together to create a mural depicting the changing of the seasons in the archery range at SiS: (l-r) Kimberly Wyatt, taylor Donaghue, Photo by Natalie Gentry ashleigh Finchum, and Mariah edwards. “Coach Andy Allen asked me if there was a way for my sixth grade art classes to maybe paint a mural on the nasty gray walls.” Buell discussed the idea with SHS art teacher Shannon Johnson, while they were at an art convention.

Good Citizenship Award Winner SHS senior emily Wilkerson was named a Daughters of the american revolution’s “Good Citizenship award” winner for her “exemplary citizenship, service to others, leadership, and patriotism.” She accepted a certificate, medal, and pin at the Weatherford Chapter Dar meeting March 25.

And so the collaborative project between the schools was born. “We came up with the idea that some of the high school art students could plan and draw the mural, and the sixth graders could paint it,” Buell said. “The students were eager partners.” Johnson said, “I have several students who have been interested in helping with the mural. Four of them have been over there, had some great ideas, and finished some drawings on the mural for the younger kids to color.” The SHS students go by the archery range after school to sketch out parts of the mural. “My sixth graders are really enjoying painting on such an exciting canvas,” Buell said. The SIS students keep old “painting” clothes in the classroom and are ready to paint on a moment’s notice. Many families have even helped with the expenses of a project this size by donating

brushes, rollers, and paint trays. SIS Principal Joe Brown helped combine the project with ongoing art instruction by supplying paints in basic colors. This limited color selection requires the students to mix and learn first-hand how various shades of colors can be made. Brown said, “The area we are using for our archery range had previously been a large storage area and was not a very attractive space, so when our art teacher Mrs. Buell, and Coach Allen came to me with the idea of painting a mural, I thought it was a great idea.” “It’s fun to see their excitement build,” Buell said. The artists started out basically painting all day on Wednesdays. Now they have unofficially formed the 7:30 Club. “We meet and paint most mornings before school starts and many students come into the archery room to paint at lunchtime,” Buell said.

By Natalie GeNtry Four Springtown High School students – Sara Alvis, Shayna Johnson, Rayanna Havens, and Cody Presson – competed at the Business Professionals of America (BPA) Texas State Leadership Conference in Houston on March 5-8. Johnson placed third in the Keyboarding Production Contest and qualified to advance to the National Leadership Conference competition in Indianapolis, Indiana April 30 - May 4. Over 1,500 students from across Texas attended the State Leadership Conference to compete in a variety of categories including legal office

procedures, financial math and analysis concept, presentation management, and extemporaneous speech. The purpose of these competitions is to foster practical application of business education skills. The goal of BPA is to develop leadership abilities through participation in career and technical education as well as civic, recreational, and social activities. The organization also aims to assist students in establishing realistic employment objectives and to promote high standards in ethics, workmanship, and scholarship.

Some businesses claim to be experienced. But for White’s Funeral Home that’s a bona fide fact. White’s has been offering funeral services in this area for more than 100 years. Those services include funeral arrangements, chapel, church, or graveside services, cremation plans, and pre-need plans. The large, experienced staff includes funeral directors and knowledgeable office personnel and attendants – all available to assist with every family’s needs. In 1908, 26-year-old W.A. White began his career in Springtown. Eventually, that family business would span more than a century and entail four generations. Selling coffins, often made from native wood, for the general mercantile store, White moved to Poolville in 1913 then to Weatherford the next year where he purchased an undertaking company. W.A. White determined that a funeral home with a director would become important in the future. In 1930, he built the original White’s Funeral Home at 130 Houston Avenue in Weatherford. That building remains as the home office and staff members continue to conduct funerals there. White’s business expanded and family members were recruited to help. His son, Ford White, worked in the business and now Bob White is the third generation owner and

current president. Longtime Weatherford resident Charles Hamilton worked at the funeral home for more than 50 years. White and son Ford moved back to Springtown in 1954 to start another funeral home. W.A. White wanted to thank Springtown and Poolville for their early support of his business. J. L. Oxford was the resident manager at the Springtown funeral home for many years. In 1980, Bob and Carolynn White purchased Memory Gardens of the Valley Memorial Park, and in 1986, they acquired funeral homes in Azle and Mineral Wells. He now sits on the board of the Funeral Director’s Life Insurance Company which insures almost $1 billion in pre-need plans. In 2012, Bob White was named the North Texas Funeral Director’s Association Funeral Director of the Year. Today, daughter Anita White has joined the staff, making it four generations of Whites serving area residents in need. The Springtown home is located at 401 North Main Street, four blocks off the intersections of State Highways 199 and 51. They encourage everyone to “please stop in and see our newly remodeled facilities.” The home is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with phones answered 24 hours daily to arrange an appointment. For more information, call them at 817220-7111 or visit whitesfuneral.com.

Several meet records fall at POJO Relays Springfield lowers both hurdling marks

by MARK K. cAMPbeLL One day of the POJO Relays was nice and the next not as nice. But hometown athletes and visitors alike tore up the event, setting several meet records March 21-22. While the boys varsity was on the way to winning its event, four Springtown athletes set new POJO Relays records: • Dillon Springfield – 110-meter hurdles (14.95 seconds) and 300 hurdles (39.54) • Benji Brokenshire – pole vault (14 feet, 6 inches, raising his own record by an inch) • Chanse Lee – long jump Porcupine Dillon Springfield lowered the 110-meter and (21-3.75) the 300-meter POJO Relays hurdling records at this • Kolyn Waldrop – discus year’s event. Photo by Mark K. Campbell (164-3)

Lee and Waldrop shone, yet despite their exceptional efforts, they did not win gold medals as Springfield and Brokenshire did. Lee and Waldrop took silvers. The long jump pit saw several POJO Relays marks tumble. In the boys competition, Nicolas Foster of Keller Fossil Ridge set the new distance leap at 22-6. The bronze winner, Biren Clardy of Mineral Wells sailed 21-2.5, also farther than the previous relay record of 21-1.5 by a Brewer jumper in 2011. In the girls varsity long jump, the old mark was 17-2.5 by a Springtown’s Shelbi Meek waits for the baton. The Lady Brewer girl in 2011.

First came a 10-0 victory over Lake Worth in a game highlighted by a no-hitter from star starter Kelsey Huff. Meanwhile, SHS scored six runs in the third inning at home to send the Lady Frogs packing. A 10-3 loss on the road March 25 at Mineral Wells followed. Coach Amy Balke said four Lady Porcupines collected hits: Gabby Casanova, Kaitlyn Hill, Jasmine Ricks,and Mary Anne Sayles. The Lady Rams scored five runs early, in the first inning. Springtown got one back in the second and two more in the sixth but the deficit was too great. The first round of 6-3A play ends Friday at home against Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis.

Tennis squads win in Glen Rose and Ft. Worth The Springtown High School tennis teams competed in split squad action. In Glen Rose, SHS took the first place plaque in the Dick Conte Invitational March 21. Half of SHS’ 14 athletes won medals there: • Amanda Glover – 1st, girls singles • Parker DeLano-Rayana Havens – 2nd, girls doubles • Jacob Matthews-Garrison Trichel – 3rd, boys doubles • J Hicks-Peter Schneider – boys double consolation champs Also collecting wins on the

day were Tanner Morgan and Lauren Brouhard-Kirsten McDonald. Glover has won 5-of-6 singles matches this season, coach Ron Elston noted. Matthews and Trichel are both “fast rising” freshmen. Former wrestler Schneider has earned the nickname “All Day and All Nighter” for “relentless practice regimens,” the coach said. Other Springtown athletes ventured to the McLeland Tennis Center in Fort Worth. There, Justin Minter finished fourth in boys singles.

Amber Benton was also fourth, in girls singles. Savannah Sutton and Kolyn Waldrop teamed up in mixed doubles and took fourth. Coleman White was a boys singles quarterfinalist as was the combo of Hayden Nettleton-Dylan Ray in boys doubles and Michelle Padilla in girls singles. Caleb Whiteman-Chandler Wright were consolation finalists in mixed play. Johnathan Chandler reached the consolation finals, too. Tyler Cantrell-Luis Martinez picked up a victory at TCU.

Other non-SHS athletes set new records, too. Mineral Wells high jumper Rascellis Williams’ 6-7 leap broke an old Wichita Falls Hirschi mark by three inches. Boyd’s Dalton Stidham sped to a 40.75 in the 110 hurdles but was second to Springtown’s Springfield. Waldrop finished second in the discus to Mike Freeze of Graham whose 166-3 hurl

broke a prior mark of 159-1 by a Haltom thrower last year. The boys varsity easily outpointed Boyd and eight other visiting schools. Mateo Herrera again was untouchable in the 400, winning this time in a smoking 52.77. He also ran the third leg of the gold-winning 4x400 relay behind Ricardo Reynoso and Lee and ahead of Springfield. The latter was untouchable in the hurdle races. He won the 110 event by almost half a second – 14.95 to 15.32 – en route to the new POJO Relays mark. Graham’s Ben Davis, now a future TCU quarterback, held the previous fastest meet record

OPINION Thursday, March 27, 2014

Verily I say unto thee: Hurry up, already!

U

h-oh. I clearly had chugged too much sweet tea and the church small group meeting was just beginning. This was nothing new; church folk bring food and drink and it gets consumed at very unbiblical paces at times. I am highly skilled at this. The 22-minute DVD lesson began. It was about Joseph and forgiving or something like that, but I had more pressing concerns. It’s always bad form to just get up in the middle of a church lesson, even if Max Lucado is lecturing from a TV screen. Another problem was that I knew that there would be discussion afterward then we’d break up into small prayer groups. More time delays... And – always! – within this sort of piecemeal gathering there’s somebody who is a professional, Old Testament

prayer sort, full of “beseeches” and “verilys” and scads of “thees” and “thous.” They are PPPs: professional pray persons. Some Christians are astounding at praying for “hedges of protection” and donning “armor of God” and a slew of other groovy phrases snatched from the Good Book. Not me. In fact, I was recently chastised for my meal prayer – which has been the same for decades. Dear Lord: Thank You for our safety and good fortune. Please keep watch over our family, friends, and troops. Thank You for this food. In Christ’s name, Amen. I always felt that covered it. It’s sincere and honest and keeps the hamburgers from getting cold. (The first thing I learned in journalism was two words: Be Concise. Everything can be shorter. [Prayers are not journalism, however. Clearly.])

My just-fine prayer, I was informed, in Christian love by the Bride, was perhaps a bit rote. Maybe I should mix it up a bit, I was informed. Perhaps try somedifferent ON YOUR thing occasionally. MARK I’m not a big out-loud Mark K. Campbell prayer. When I was a kid in youth groups, I prayed silently often – to not be chosen to pray aloud. I’m fine praying verbally now, even if it’s a tad briefer than the pros. Usually, it’s the old folks who are PPPs, the guys and gals who sit in the back of whatever gathering is going on – the King-James-is-the-only-

real-Bible people – who will whip out elongated, flowery, dense praises and laments that can go on for a while. I have no doubt that they are sincere when they bring in detailed statements concerning “discernment” for politicians and helping the evil biased liberal media “see the light”. Then, there’s always the PPPs’ standby, the weather. How things are going outside is always a constant with the pros’ prose and their confined audience. Especially rain: either appreciative for recent rains – “Verily, we thank Thou!” – or pleading for absent rain – “We beseech Thee!” (That last prayer has been going on for about three years now.) So, anyway, after Max Lucado told us on the TV to be more forgiving, we chatted for a while. I remember nothing. All those cups of tea... Then came the breakout into smaller groups. Fortunately, I didn’t get the PPP. In a few minutes, all the other

groups had broken up and were milling about in the hallway (I eventually joined them after taking care of business) while the PPP was on fire with a series of Old School words and phrases. Now, there’s something kinda cool about an 80-year-old man who has been a member of the same church for 70 years intoning concerns and thanks in a Shakespearian manner. There’s a poetry there, no doubt, and Spirit led, hopefully. But a lengthy prayer doesn’t work for all of us. Just like some of us are OK with the NIV or even – gasp! – The Message, we’re also OK with knowing that God knows our hearts and it might not be necessary to evoke every situation you can think of. Still, if you need to whip out some “verilys” and “begots” go for it. I’ll cut back on the tea. Mark K. Campbell is the Epigraph editor and once dared to take a Living Bible to Sunday School.

Letter to the editor Concerns about youth volleyball I thought this was for kids to have fun and learn to play volleyball. Apparently some parents think it’s all about winning and stacking all of the better playing girls on one team so that they can prepare for seventh grade. That is what is being done this season. According to the rules that were explained to the coaches: A coach can

“protect” their daughter from being chosen for another team. The commissioner this year has decided to coach. She has no daughters playing in the league. But she has taken it upon herself to “coach protect” three girls whom she says are like her daughters. Ironically these are some of the best sixth grade girls. After the draft on Sunday night, she then called my wife who is a coach as well, and wanted to “trade” my wife’s first pick because this girl’s mother might cause problems if she is not on the “right” team. If you are so worried about your

daughter being prepped for the next level, go play club ball and get professional coaches. Let the rest of the girls just have fun. Stacking one team with all of the best girls so they can win every game teaches them nothing. The commissioner should at least be setting the example and following the rules. What a joke. This used to be fun for the girls; now several don’t want to play and for obvious reasons coaches now don’t want to coach. Randy Harris Springtown

Mounting responsibilities: Mary Custis Lee, Part 5

A

s Mary moved into the later stages of her life, it’s clear she refused to let her poor health keep her from tending to the needs of her family and friends. Always suffering from constant pain, she went about her life with an unwavering faith in God, a strong love and commitment to her husband and children, and a genuine desire to ease the pain and discomfort of those around her – even when their was seldom any relief for her own physical suffering. “During her idle time after the Civil War, which was rare, Arlington was foremost in her mind and she wondered if she would ever get to see her childhood home again. “The main difficulty Mary experienced while her husband was off fighting in the War with Mexico was the task of solely caring for all her children; however, the fact that they were back at Arlington made the task a bit easier. After the war, Mary was excited to learn Robert's next post was West Point; a blessing that meant the Lees would be close to Custis who was

now in his second year at the academy. “They were no sooner settled in their quarters in New York that Mary received word that her mother was dying. She immediately left for Arlington but didn’t arrive in time to bid her mother goodbye. Her mother’s passing left her father in deep mourning and Mary knew he was in no condition to see to the funeral arrangements and as she had so often done in the past, she squared her shoulders and took the heavy burden upon herself. She became a pillar of strength as the household fell apart. She was now the new Lady of Arlington. “Shortly after the funeral, Mary returned to West Point where she became popular among the cadets who enjoyed her doting and motherly affection. Some of the students she grew fond of included: Jeb Stuart, John Pegram, and Otis Howard. In 1854, she was pleased when Custis graduated first in his class from West Point. “By this time, Rooney was attending Harvard College, having failed to receive an appointment to West Point. No sooner had Mary fallen into a comfortable routine, the family

was uprooted once again as Robert accepted a field command in Texas. He dutifully escorted his family back to Arlington and prior to his departure, Mary's HISTORICAL father preHIGHLIGHTS sented him with George Laurie Moseley Wa s h i n g ton's service sword. It was during that visit that Robert noted the disarray of the Arlington finances and worked tirelessly to bring order to the books in the short amount of time he had before reporting to Texas. “When it was time for him to leave, he turned the task over to Mary and later wrote to her concerning her additional duties: ‘As regards your household arrangements & what concerns your father's comfort & welfare, as

well as your own, you must yourself act & not rely on him or wait on me.’ Not only was she raising the children and overseeing the household, she was now responsible for the finances of Arlington, as well as all of the other properties her father owned. “During that year, Mary's health deteriorated and she suffered more bouts of swelling, stiffness and pain. Walking became difficult and climbing the steps near impossible. Much of the time she was confined to her bed. But although her health was failing, she kept up current events, especially politics – it was an election year. Many topics were being debated, especially concerning slavery. She was still opposed to the institution, a view that was in disagreement with her husband which is evident in a letter he penned to her in December of that year: ‘… The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing is necessary for their instructions as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things…’ “Mary made a difficult journey to

the springs in Berkley hoping to find some relief from her pain and suffering. When she returned to Arlington, she found her father had taken quite ill. They had a few days together before he died on October 10 with Mary at his bedside. Robert immediately asked for, and was granted, two months leave to oversee his father-inlaw's estate. While Robert grappled with finances that included decades of poor financial decisions and poor record keeping, Mary, having stumbled upon her father's memoirs of his days growing up at Mount Vernon, organized the papers and arranged them into a book. Her crippling disease made the task difficult and painful, but she was persistent. “In 1859, she completed the project and it was published shortly thereafter under the title Recollections and Private Memoirs of Washington, by his Adopted Son George Washington Parke Custis, with a Memoir of this Author by his Daughter. It received favorable reviews.” Laurie Moseley is an author, archeologist and historian who lives in Springtown. He is the director of Springtown’s Legends Museum.

DPS creates a center to protect children

T

he Texas Department of Public Safety on March 18 announced the creation of the Texas Crimes Against Children Center within the agency’s Texas Rangers Division. The stated goal is to protect children through the collection and dissemination of vital intelligence, investigative support and cooperation with victim-assistance counselors by “providing support to local, state and federal partners on investigations related to missing and exploited children, the trafficking of children, child abductions and other high-risk threats to children.” “The exploitation and human trafficking of children is a deplorable crime and it is critical that we use all available resources to keep them safe,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw.

Services on March 14 reported the presence of “influenza-like illness or institutional outbreaks in at least two but less than half the regions of the state with recent laboratory evidence of influenza in those regions.” And although “influenza laboratory data and influenza-like illness indicators have demonstrated a consistent decrease for the last several weeks,” influenza-like illness intensity “is still elevated throughout Texas” and 14 pediatric flu deaths have been confirmed in Texas this season. The state health department punctuated its report by encouraging “everyone six months old and older to get a dose of flu vaccine” for this season’s particular strains.

Movie Man

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Here’s a new Muppet character suggestion: Snoozer Alas, here’s another sequel that sadly lives up to the Second Movie Theory: the predecessor is usually better. While the Movie Man wasn’t blown away by the Muppets return in 2011 (Movie Man No. 958, a 6), this new one, the sequel, is certainly a lesser effort. About the film Muppets’ history goes way back – from early appearances on TV’s Sesame Street to the puppets shooting to the top of the pop culture zeitgeist in the 1970’s in a TV show that every major star of the day scrambled to be on. Movies followed, but, like plenty of fads through the years, the Muppet bloom faded. Then, a generation that grew up on the critters began harkening back nostalgically like all generations do. And there stood those happy, slightly wonky Muppets. Thirty-four-year old Jason Segal was one of those kids who watched the TV show as a boy. He was the primary impetus for the big screen revival. The rebirthed Muppets also clung to their low-rent Broadway song and dance numbers. That ’11 movie even won an Academy Award for Best Original Song with the witty “Man or Muppet.” Of course, it only had to beat out one tune, from the animated movie Rio (2011, MM #926, 4). Once there was a time when Best Song was a major battle, an era when a movie’s theme song was often a major pop hit. For many stretches of consecutive years, every Oscar winner for Best Original Song was also a big radio hit. From 1969-73: “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969, B.J. Thomas, No. 1 on the charts; “For All We Know” from Lovers and Other Strangers, 1970, the Carpenters, No. 3; “Theme from Shaft,” 1971, Isaac Hayes, No. 1; “The Morning After,” from The Poseidon Adventure, 1972, Maureen McGovern,

No. 1; and “The Way We Were” from The Way We Were, 1973, Barbra Streisand. An even more awesome stretch came in 1980-87: “Fame” from Fame, 1980, Irene Cara, No. 4; “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” from Arthur, 1981, Christopher Cross, No. 1; “Up Where We Belong” from An Offi cer and a Gentleman, 1982, Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes, No. 1; “Flashdance…What a Feeling: from Flashdance, 1983, Irene Cara, No. 1; “I Just Called to Say I Love You” from The Woman in Red, 1984, Stevie Wonder, No. 1; “Say You, Say Me” from White Nights, 1985, Lionel Richie, No. 1; “Take My Breath Away” from Top Gun, 1986, Berlin, No. 1; and “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing, 1987, Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes, No. 1. Today, few major songs from movies are hits, even though the most recent Best Song winner, “Let It Go” from Frozen, is an exception. The plot The Muppets, fresh off their 2011 movie, are encouraged to go on a world tour under the auspices of promoter Dominic (Ricky Gervais). But he plans on teaming up with evil Constantine – a dead ringer for Ker-

Movie Man mit the Frog – and pulling off a great heist. Kermit gets arrested and sent to a Russian gulag overseen by Nadya (Tina Fey). His place in the Muppets’ troupe is taken by Constantine as the puppets tour foreign cities. Gervais and Constantine must collect hidden artifacts – a painting, a key, and a locket – before they can rob the Tower of London. So the Muppets “tour” a few major capitals where the evil duo gathers the items. Only a couple of Muppets suspect Kermit’s been replaced. Eventually, the real Kermit is rescued and the bad guys are thwarted with minor help from a French detective (Ty Burrell) and Muppet Sam the Eagle.

What works There are a few cute moments, like seeing Christoph Waltz waltz with a giant Muppet or seeing Kermit/Constantine standing on Gervais’ head. The only memorable song is a near-dead-on 70’s soul mimic called “I’ll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu).” But it’s not really “Best Song” worthy.

It’s been slow going, but, after a winter that refuses to exit, spring is finally arriving. Peach trees (above) are blossoming, something bees appreciate (left). Bluebonnets (far left), the true harbinger of Texas spring, are finally getting their chance to shine here in the northern part of the state. Also in action are springtime birds, including red-headed woodpeckers (upper left), bluebirds, and our state bird, the mockingbird.

Parker County residential countywide cleanup day April 5 The Parker Countywide Cleanup is slated for Saturday, April 5 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at all precinct barns. All Parker County residents are encouraged to clean up their personal property and, if possible, form neighborhood groups now to tidy up and mow roadsides and public areas, and assist disabled persons in cleaning around their homes. The cleanup can be seen as an opportunity to meet neighbors and enhance the formation of networks throughout the county, which can actively sup-

port a number of worthwhile projects from crime watch to helping neighbors in need. Cleanup day is for private citizens, not commercial disposal. Residents are required to bring some form of proof of residency, as the cleanup is for Parker County residents only. Commissioners’ precinct barns will have areas or receptacles designated for the following items: • aluminum, iron, glass etc. • newspapers, cardboard • tires (rims removed)

• furniture/appliances • dried paint cans • lumber, limbs and brush • batteries, oil filters, and oil No fl ammable liquids, shingles, paint, or chemicals will be accepted. As a courtesy to workers, separate items and bag securely to speed unloading and reduce labor. They will not unload loose garbage. All Parker County residents may go to the closest collection site. Directions to precinct barns: Precinct 1 (Commissioner

George Conley, 817-220-7218) – 3000 Veal Station Road, south of Springtown Precinct 2 (Commissioner Craig Peacock, 817-594-4022) – 3033 FM Road 1885, Peaster Precinct 3 (Commissioner, Larry Walden, 817-594-0371) – 1111 FM 1189, Brock Precinct 4 (Commissioner Dusty Renfro, 817-596-0004) – 1320 Airport Road, Aledo For more information call your county precinct barn or the Parker County offi ce of Texas AgriLife Extension Service at (817) 598-6168.
