Lots of talk, little movement BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Four months after the last “felt” earthquake occurred in the Azle/Reno area, elected offi cials and seismic researchers alike headed to Austin in another attempt to shake things up. The Texas House Energy Resources Subcommittee on Seismic Activity heard testimony May 12 from Azle Mayor Alan Brundrett, Reno Mayor Lynda Stokes, and SMU researchers Dr. Brian Stump and Dr. Heather Deshon. Azle City Manager Craig Lemin accompanied Brundrett on the trip to Austin, and said on May 13 that he

thought the hearing was productive. “It appears everyone is getting on the same page,” Lemin said. “We defi nitely have the attention of the state, the industry, and the academics.” The Subcommittee on Seismic Activity was formed in January to investigate increased seismic activity that has occurred in areas adjacent to oil and gas production and disposal wells. The Subcommittee is chaired by the Vice Chair of Energy Resources Myra Crownover (R-Denton), and includes Representatives Phil King (R-WeathPLEASE SEE LOTS, PAGE 3A.

Azle Mayor Alan Brundrett’s Lots of talk, statement to House Energy Resources little movement Subcommittee on Seismic Activity n LOTS, FROM PAGE ONE.

Madam Chair, members of the committee. I want to thank you for this opportunity to speak to you today. My name is Alan Brundrett and I am Mayor of the City of Azle. I am here today to talk about our experiences and concerns regarding the earthquakes in our area. In early November, we experienced our first earthquake. No one in Azle remembered that happening before and it was more a curiosity in the community than anything. The next day a second quake occurred and another one the following day. Within a week, there were six and curiosity turned to concern. By the end of November, there were 16 measurable earthquakes and, for some, concern was beginning to turn to fear. At that point, the “Azle” earthquakes were prominent in the local media and beginning to gain national attention. Everyone began asking what the City of Azle was going to do about the quakes. We contacted our State Representatives, Representative King and Representative Geren. We found they were already working on the issue and communicating with seismologists at the University of Texas. At that point, the injection wells came into the picture and we began researching the topic. Shortly after that, we met with representatives of one of the companies operating a disposal well in the area. They provided us data about their well including the volume injected through October 2013. They indicated there was no scientific study showing that injections wells were a direct cause of earthquakes. As we went into December, the quakes continued and the concern and fear grew. I contacted Representative Kay Granger’s Office who put us in touch with Dr. William Ellsworth with the USGS. Dr. Ellsworth was the first person we spoke with who could address many of our concerns. It was comforting to find they were already looking at what was going on in our area. Dr. Ellsworth advised us that the seismologists at SMU were going to be conducting the research in our area and put us in touch with Dr. Heather DeShon. We worked with the SMU staff to find locations for the initial deployment of their equip-

ment. Through their efforts, it was quickly determined that the epicenter of the quakes was near two injection wells north of Azle. However, they were not in a position to declare that the injection wells were the cause. All this time the media attention continued to grow and I was being interviewed daily by local and national news services. All were asking, “What was Azle going to do about the earthquakes and the injections wells north of our city that had become the prime suspect?” Our City ordinance does not allow injection wells in the city limits, but we found there are numerous wells outside the city. I contacted the Texas Railroad Commission and was advised they had inspected some of the wells in the area and found they were in compliance with their permits. They also told me there was no scientific study that directly related injection wells to causing earthquakes. In early January, the Railroad Commission held a public meeting to hear about what people were experiencing. Over 800 people came expecting answers, and left frustrated when there weren’t any. The quakes continued and the concerns and fears grew. If I could sum up our experience in one word, that word would be “frustration.” Since the first quake, we have met with our State Representatives, the seismologists studying the quakes, representatives of the industry, and officials of the Railroad Commission. We found that while everyone seems genuinely concerned, there is a disconnect among the various stakeholders. The seismologists hope to not only determine if there is a relationship between the injection wells and the quakes, but to determine why they may

Yet, we cannot get everyone together to share the information needed to address this problem. Azle is a city of just over 11,000 people. Due to the earthquakes, we are concerned for the safety and economic well being of our community. Even though the wells and epicenter are not in our city, they impact us. Our residents and business owners are concerned and at times afraid. Our school district now conducts earthquake drills. We have not been willing to sit by and wait for everyone to get on the same page. So we have tried to bring the various groups together, we have communicated with all the involved stakeholders, and today we come to you for help. Texas has always been a leader in the energy field. It is now time to lead again. What has been happening in the AzleReno area is happening in other parts of Texas and other states. It will happen to other communities as exploration expands. It’s time to step up and confirm once and for all if injection wells are causing these quakes and determine why. Then steps can be taken to locate injection wells where they will not create similar problems. The City of Azle appreciates the important role the oil and gas industry plays in our economy. But we also know that if people cannot feel safe and secure in their communities, the state of the economy doesn’t mean much. So we are asking you to help us bring everyone together to find the answers needed to address this issue once and for all. Thank you.

erford), Terry Canales (D-Edinburg), and Chris Paddie (RMarshall). The formation of the Subcommittee came after the Azle and Reno areas experienced approximately 30 “felt” earthquakes in about 60 days, from early November 2013 into early January 2014. A team of seismologists from Southern Methodist University that is researching the earthquakes, led by Stump and Deshon, released its preliminary findings in a report prepared for the Subcommittee hearings. The team noted its “main observations” in the report, including: • Initial locations show a complex fault system trending northeast-southwest. The depth cross-section shows that seismicity occurs on two steeply dipping, conjugate faults. Depth uncertainty is on the order of 1 kilometer (0.62 miles).

Mahan received a bachelor of science degree in meteorology with a minor in mathematics. Convocation for the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences was held May 10. Mahan is the son of John and Rhonda Coontz of Azle and Todd Majan of Seattle, Washington. He is the grandson of Wyvie O’Rear of Azle and the late Thomas O’Rear.

be causing the quakes, which in turn could identify areas to avoid when drilling new injection wells. However, they cannot get all the information needed for their study. Specifically, the volume of water being injected each day and the pressure. It seems operators are only required to report monthly total volumes and average pressures, and the reports are only filed in November of each year. So the data for the period the quakes occurred will not be submitted until November 2014. I spoke with a representative of the company operating the largest well near the epicenter and asked if he could get us volume and pressure data for November 2013 through January 2014. He indicated it wouldn’t be a problem, but later informed me he was advised he could not release that information until after they file their Railroad Commission report in November 2014. We met with Railroad Commission Director Rister and their new Seismologist, Craig Pearson. I would like to say, we are grateful to the commission for taking this step. Director Rister advised us of the issues and difficulties involved with requiring greater data from the operators. As the energy industry expands into more populated areas, what we experienced is happening in other areas of the country. Right now, in the area of Azle and Reno, we have scientists working to determine the connection between injection wells and earthquakes, and what may be causing these to happen. We have operators who daily gather data to monitor their wells and bill their customers. Finally, we have a state agency that has the authority to regulate those operators.

• Seismicity rates have been highly variable. Swarms of hundreds of events can occur in a day, but weeks with few to no earthquakes have also occurred. • Small earthquakes continue to be detected on the network. Earthquakes in December 2013 and January 2014 occurred north of Reno and Azle. More recent activity has occurred near the city of Reno and continues in the original source zone. According to the report, a network of 12 seismometers deployed in the Azle/Reno area has noted more than 300 earthquakes large enough to be recorded on multiple stations since December 2013 and thousands of very small events during periods of swarm activity. The link between felt earthquakes and waste-water fluid injection points related to shale gas development in Texas and other states remains a major question, according to the report.

City Street Sweeping begins May 20 Waste Partners will sweep curb and gutter streets in Azle on Tuesday, May 20. They will begin sweeping in Timberlake and move north from there. We ask residents to help by removing from the street; vehicles, basketball backboards and trash cans. Moving your car off the street on sweep day is very important. Leaving a car parked on the street means that an area of almost 3 car lengths will be left upswept.

THAZ hosts ‘Shred-a-thon’ Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle (THAZ) will be shred-central May 17. Whether it’s dusty stacks of old pay stubs, mortgage or credit card statements, tax forms, or utility bills, the threat of identity theft these days makes letting go tough. That’s why THAZ, as part of Texas Health Resources, is hosting a free “Shred-a-thon” to “honor Earth Day 2014.” Personal paperwork will be safely shredded on-site beyond the leering eyes of identity thieves — and all the pa-

per shreddings are recycled. The on-site shredding services will be provided by Iron Mountain Incorporated. Individuals are allowed up to four boxes of paperwork — but cardboard, among other items, cannot be shredded. People will need to take their cardboard/totes back with them. The Shred-a-thon day will run from 9 a.m. to noon, May 17, at THAZ. Shreddable items: • All paper • Fasteners such as paper

clips, staples, notebooks, spirals • Business cards, brochures, banners, pamphlets, fliers Items that are not to be shredded include: • Food or liquids of any type • Glass, plastic, aluminum • Batteries • Wrappers, cans or bottles • Metal objects • CDs • DVDs • Drives • Hard Drives • Audio Video Tape

Azle sales tax revenue is down – or is it? Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced that state sales tax revenue in April was $2.27 billion, up 5.6 percent compared to April 2013. “Growth in sales tax revenue was spurred by increases in the telecommunications sector and services sector,” Combs said. “Increased business spending in the wholesale trade sector also contributed to the latest monthly gain. This marks 49 consecutive months of growth in sales tax collections.” Combs will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their May local sales tax allocations totaling $716 million, up 7.1 percent compared to May 2013. The sales tax figures represent monthly sales made in March as well as January, February and March sales by businesses that report tax quarterly. Locally, almost every municipality and county showed increases compared with 2013 revenues. However, the city of Azle, its Crime Control District and Parker County reported decreases. Azle’s May revenue of $203,926 is down 3.18 percent from the $212,017 recorded in May 2013. Year-to-date revenue of $880,044 is down

1.07 percent from this time last year when revenues totaled $889.625. Likewise, Azle’s Crime Control and Prevention District saw a 5.75 percent decrease with its May revenue of $35,497 from $37,663 received in May 2013. Year-to-date revenues of $161,818 are down 2.20 percent from $165,474 through May 2013. The Azle Municipal Development District earned $37,835 in May, and its year-to-date revenues are $154,651. There are no comparisons to draw since the District is in its first year to collect sales tax. Azle City Manager Craig Lemin said with a second consecutive month of decreased sales tax revenue, he decided to dig into the numbers to see what is happening. What he found is that current period collections are actually about on par with those in 2013; however, adjustments for prior period collections as well as audit collections in both April and May have brought the numbers down, making it appear there is a decrease when there really is not. The city of Sanctuary, too, saw a decrease of 7.18 percent with $1,156 for May, compared with $1,245 in May 2013. For


the year, the town’s revenues of $5,242 are 2.86 percent less than the same period in 2013, when it had collected $5,420. Both Reno and Springtown saw healthy increases in May. Springtown’s $87,969 sales tax check is 10.7 percent more than it collected in May 2013, $79,459. That still not enough to catch the city up for the year – yearto-date revenues are now at $353,812, 4.11 percent less than the $368,978 it collected through May 2013. It’s a similar case in Reno, whose $7,964 for May is an 8.17 percent increase compared with $7,361 for May 2013. However, the city remains behind by 2.36 percent on the year with revenues of $31,784. Through May 2013, the city collected $32,555. Parker County saw a drop of 6.43 percent for May with revenue of $572,911 compared with May 2013 revenue of $612,338. But the county remains up 5.48 percent year-to-date with $2,895,213. It collected $2,744,573 through May 2013. On the Tarrant County side, Pelican Bay’s May revenue is $2,279, up 17.29 percent from May 2013 revenue of

The pups at Menix Lodge are treated to shaded kennels during hot summer months. Each kennel has a personal inside area for snoozing.

Menix Pet Lodge pampers your pet Pets will love staying at the Menix Pet Lodge in Azle. Stan and Shirley Menix opened the lodge on their property in July 2013. One or both of them are on the property at all times and are committed to the comfort and care of pets while you are on vacation or business trips or when you just need a sitter for a day. Pets are not caged. Animals enjoy dog runs that are shaded in the heat of day. Stan and Shirley encourage clients to come out and see the kennels for themselves. References are available, too. Kennels are climate controlled with carpet on the floor of each individual room. All pets have access to their own individual dog run at all times through doggie doors. The lodge provides beds and blankets unless you prefer to provide your pet its own. Water and food dishes are sanitized between each visit. Each room is vacuumed.

Small dogs are kept inside the Menix house uncaged. Stan and Shirley live on an acre with large front and back yards. Each pet gets to run and play in the yards; if pets are social, they can romp together. The lodge’s hours are flexible. Times are usually between 7 to 8 a.m., but they take special appointments. On Sunday, Stan and Shirley go to church so appointments need to be made before 10 a.m. or after 2 p.m. The lodge is located at 256 Jennings Lane in Azle. Take 730 North about 5 miles out of Azle where there are water towers on each side of the road. At the bottom of the hill past the towers, turn left on Knob Hill Road (FM 2257). Drive 2 miles to Jennings Lane and turn right. The lodge is the first house on the right. Menix Pet Lodge serves the tricounty area. Call 817-938-1435 or 983-5579 – your pet will thank you!

We are committed to the comfort and care of your pet! Since July 2013!

wrestle from you. It is in no way easy to wrestle! Every day, dragging yourself out of bed before the crack of dawn, just to run until your lungs burst, being slammed onto a cold hard mat repeatedly. There is no such thing as sitting on the couch, hanging out, or eating whatever you want, not in wrestling, not if you want to be better. You taught me that you have to put in the work, coach. There is no time to waste, “every wasted rep you have, that much closer your opponent gets to you”. When we say B.Y.A. that explains everything I need to know. Without you Coach Allen, I would never have even gone to college (and to that my momma thanks you)! You always pushed me harder than I thought I could go. Without you I wouldn’t know what I was capable of. You taught me that even though I may not be good at something, it doesn’t mean I couldn’t have pride in it. That I should put everything I had into the task at hand. I can never thank you for all you have taught me and all the faith you put in me. Without you I wouldn’t be the young lady who has the determination, the will, and the ability to go out into the world and get what I want. Thank you for the four longest, hardest, most gratifying years of my life. T.C.O.B. Sincerely,

Jesse Grubbs

Keith Boenisch Coach Boenisch, I can’t believe it has been 5 years since I met you. I stepped into your class an immature eighth grader and walked out a still immature eighth grader. The change was that I gained a sense of direction and the motivation to pursue a higher education in science. I remember walking into your class expecting to hate it. A male, coaching girls, just seemed unnatural to me. When I realized you were also my homeroom, or advisory as we called it, teacher, I was not thrilled. Skip forward a week and I looked forward to every one of your class periods. From building solar ovens to listening to stories of your old classmates catching their hair on fire, I hung on every word. For the first time, I not only did well in a class, I excelled. A large reason that I am in the top ten is because of your class 5 years ago. I knew I was smart, but I lacked a drive to excel in school. In me you grew an addiction to science that I hope to continue throughout my life. I think of you as more than a teacher. You are a role model and a friend. So thank you Coach Boenisch for all you have done. Your impact on my growth from Condiment Kid to the young adult I am today is tremendous. The enjoyment of learning that you instilled in me in 8th grade has pushed me to excel in high school and will do the same as I become an adult. With best regards,

Chris Hunt

Holly Slininger Mrs. Slininger, It is hard to thank someone who really impacted your life in such a way that if they had not been a part of it, you could possibly be a completely different individual. I owe a lot of my success in academics to many teachers like you. Even as my kindergarten teacher, you pushed me to do the best that I could in school. I remember reading small books every night for homework and coming back the next day asking for another one. You eventually ran out and had to start printing more books for me to read. I truly believe you sparked my desire to enjoy school and strive to be the greatest student and person I could be. After kindergarten, you continued to check on my family and I throughout elementary school, middle school, and even junior high as well as my first two years of high school when we lived seven hours away in a different state. You made it known that you cared about what was happening in my life and I am forever thankful for your love and kindness. You are one of the first firm bases, besides my family, to help prepare me for a life within a shaky society. I have had many other influences in my life since kindergarten. Each and every person I have come into contact with over the entirety of my young life has affected me in some way, big or small. However, the majority of the other mentors came into my life after kindergarten. Without a firm base with a desire to learn and achieve success in everything I do, the others would not be significant and my life would have had the potential to be very different. Thank you Mrs. Slininger for everything that you have done for me in the past twelve years; I can never thank you enough. Sincerely,

Bryson Jennings

Jeniffer Shearer Dear Mrs. Shearer, On day one of your class, I knew it would be a fun and exciting class. I was also excited to learn Spanish, but nervous because I was never good at foreign languages. You taught your students in so many ways that included fun activities and teams would face each other to see who would win. I may not have won every time, but I always brought a lot of energy to the game and always had fun learning. I hope you do not change your style of teaching or the energy you bring with the subject. Your classroom had an aura of excitement and that always brought a smile on my face. Although I do not plan to major in foreign language, I will always remember your class and how fun it can be to learn Spanish. I always enjoyed the assignment and projects you assigned your students and I tried my best to shine for the others to show how much I enjoyed your class. I had your class 1st period and that was a great way to start my day. No matter how tired I was, at the end of the period I was awake and full of energy. Most teachers have to calm me down from my excitement and energy, but you encouraged it and seemed to have as much fun as I did. I will remember the video our class did with a rap and I got to be the beat boxer. It was so much fun! Normally I get tired of a class after a year, but I really miss not getting to be in your classroom every day. I will always remember your class and I will keep spreading the energy I have. Gracias y vaya con dios! Yours truly,

David Mahlmann

Dory Miller Dear Mrs. Miller, I have asked you to join me today because not only were you a great teacher, you touched my life in a way that many cannot do. You left an impact on me that will stay forever. As I told you about the things I loved and enjoyed, you always encouraged me to continue in that direction. I cannot thank you enough for doing that. It helped me realize that if I really enjoy what I do, nothing can stop me from achieving greatness. Also, having you as a teacher was really awesome. I enjoyed English III because you made the class fun to be in, as well as getting what needed to be done, done. Mrs. Miller, inviting you to this dinner is special and means a lot to me. I can’t express enough how thankful for everything you have done for me. You are a “one of a kind” teacher and I’m quite thankful that I was able to be in your 5th period class my junior year. That class could be pretty crazy sometimes with the people that were in there, but I wouldn’t change anything about it. From the time I met you at El Cerrito, being in your class my junior year, to now; you are still making a huge influence on my life. Not only will I always remember you for being the teacher that made class enjoyable, but also for encouraging me to live life doing what I love. Thank you Mrs. Miller, for everything you have done for me. Best regards,

Bruce Mikel

Julia Webb Dear Mrs. Webb, Over the past four years I have looked up to one person in particular. I consider her my role model and she has been a huge influence in my life. She is kind hearted, encouraging, and most of all graceful. By just getting to have a quick conversation with her, it would seem as if all your worries flow away. Always dancing and laughing, she found a way to cheer anyone up. She has always been there for me through the tears of joy and the really sad days. She’s a beautiful person inside and out and it makes me so sad to think that I’ll have to say goodbye to her soon. My role model is the ideal teacher, director, mother and person, she is you, Mrs. Webb. Over the past four years, you have been a constant inspiration to me. Your influence has helped me to become more confident and outgoing. Whether it was your helpful spurts of advice or spontaneous dancing, you have made my days a little bit brighter. Hearing the stories you would tell us during practices always made me laugh and smile. Whether it was little things about your kids or stories from when you were in high school. You have consistently been there for me throughout the years. I remember when I was asked to host the pep-rallies the night before the first football game, and I was really nervous to take on such a huge responsibility. You told me “I’ll stand by you the whole time and help you, if needed”. Throughout each and every pep-rally, you never once left my side and for that I am very grateful. You had faith in me in times that I did not have faith in myself, and you have shown me that I can do anything I set my mind to. You have done more than just “build a home” for us, you have built a family. We are a family of girls who accomplish great things with your leadership. It was such an incredible experience getting to be a manager for the drill team under your direction. You have instilled in all the dazzlers the importance of reliability, punctuality and responsibility. Most of all, you never let us forget to respect each other and ourselves. You have accomplished so much in your life and I hope I can be half the women you are one day. The phrase “Thank you” does not accurately encompass the amount of gratitude I have for everything you have done for me. It saddens me to think that in a few days you’ll ask your “amazing managers” to play the music one last time. Love,

Candice Ortiz

and as a person. Your selflessness, humility, and passion inspire me, and I take comfort in the thought that you will continue to inspire others for the rest of your life. I learned from you that “… to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to Dear Mrs. Borger, I chose you as my honored teacher because of the incredible have succeeded”. Mrs. McCoy, you have succeeded. God bless, warmth, encouragement, and support you gave me and every other child you’ve taught or TJ Savage helped. Even in the second grade, I could tell you were a special teacher. My brother always talked highly of you and said how fun second grade was because of you. I was so Dear Mr. Tschoepe: excited when I found out you It seems like so long ago when I received my schedule and could were going to be my teacher! not figure out how to say your name, so I spent the first week of Your teaching and interaction school calling you “Sir.” Before I walked into your class I dreaded actually made me want to go to the thought of Calculus, yet it has become the best class of the day. school. If I had any trouble, you I always have a story about the were there, making sure I unantics of my Calculus class, and derstood. You always believed it never fails to make me smile. I could do anything and, in turn, Mr. Tschoepe, you are truly my made me believe in myself. favorite teacher. You don’t suWe had some crazy times in garcoat anything, you tell it like second grade. I vividly remember Sarah Schutte getting a quarter stuck in her throat, Gabby, it is and I’m so glad you do. You have inspired me so Madison, and I singing and performing the “Booty-Bop”, and having to recite “The Night before Christmas”. I swear, remem- much this year, with your dedibering that whole thing was one of the hardest tasks I’ve ever cation to helping your students been given! One of my favorite things you had us do was journ- and your easy going attitude; aling. I still journal to this day and I can’t thank you enough for and honestly, you are one of the starting that habit. Putting down what a person thinks and feels on funniest people to talk to. I want paper is something I’ve really come to value, so thank you again. to thank you so much for always I also want to thank you for a great act of kindness. In sec- being at the school at 7:00 and ond grade, I lost my favorite bracelet I had made in New Mexico ready to answer any questions when my mom and I went for a wedding. I was as distraught as I might have; which tends to be any second grader could be and felt terrible about losing it. Then a lot! While you might have been my Calculus teacher, you also one day you surprised me with a new bracelet, almost identical taught the class and me many life lessons and what to expect in colto my old one, that your husband brought back from his trip to lege. The one that I remember most vividly is your advice on test New Mexico. The fact that you and your husband took the time taking, “There comes a point when you know you’ve studied all to bring me another one, cared about me enough, or even remem- you can, and you know you did the best you could.” While it might bered I had lost it at all meant so much to me. I can say, without be hard for me to realize at first, I know I will hear myself saying a doubt, that I am not the only person you have made an impact that many times as I embark on my journey to Texas A&M. I just want to thank you for being the best teacher I have had. I on and I surely won’t be the last. I truly value people with caring am so disappointed that I only got to spend one year in your class, hearts like you, Mrs. Borger, and I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. For believing in me, for caring about but I know the lessons you taught will be with me forever. I truly me, and for helping me grow into the person I am today, I want am going to miss you Mr. Tschoepe, especially bugging you during to thank you. You have always been a bright spot in my life and my counseling aide period or before school. While you know that I am a San Antonio Spurs fan, I just have one more thing to say: having you at the high school is a great blessing. Go Mavs! Sincerely, Sincerely,

Taryn Robertson Dear Ms. Robertson, Throughout my life I have attended quite a few schools and had countless teachers. Never in my life though did I think I was going to meet a teacher who would impact my life like you have. I remember when I first met you my junior year. You were a new young teacher and everyone thought it was going to be an easy year. That wasn’t the case though. Before I had you I never had an interest in English or literature at all for that matter. You teach in a way that would make the stories so interesting and I wanted to learn all the terms so I could understand and enjoy the things we read even more. Because of you, now I practice my writing by using it as a release for my thoughts and I can throw myself into a story like I have never been able to before. Not only have you influenced me greatly in the classroom, but you have also been a part of helping me become the young woman I am today. Last year during a period of my life, times I didn’t think I would make it through, you were there along with a couple others in this school though and helped me overcome it. When I had no guidance or needed advice you were there. During that time you helped me learn to always stay on your track and never lose sight of your goals, no matter the challenges you’re faced with. When presented with this special achievement, and told to honor a teacher it was the easiest decision. You have been a wise educator, and an illustrious role model. I’ll always love you for being the guidance I needed to help me become the person I am today. I could never thank you enough for all you’ve helped me through the past two years, but I’ll start with showing everyone what a great teacher and human being you are and have been to me with this honor. Sincerely,

Morgan Prentice

Melissa McCoy Dear Mrs. McCoy, The T.J. Savage who entered your class three years ago would not have written this letter. To start, I couldn’t stand writing, but this unfounded distaste was nothing more than a symptom of a larger problem. I couldn’t stand English. I wanted to make a difference in the world, and I simply didn’t see how wasting my time reading about a loudmouthed Alabama tomboy and writing about twelve angry men could ever help me accomplish that. By the time you left, however, I knew in my heart that Harper Lee and Reginald Rose had taught me as much about making a difference as George Washington and Martin Luther. You opened my eyes to the many wonders of literature. The painstaking level of thought involved, the subtle nuances of language, and the real meaning behind an author’s words all flew over my head before I became your student. Truly, you teach as well as anyone I have ever met, but that is not what sets you apart. You never just cared about my schoolwork or my grades. You cared about me. Never before I met you and never since have I known someone who takes a vested interest in the well-being and development of their students as do you. I remember many days spent eagerly awaiting the final bell to ring so that I could sit in your room and talk to you, not only because I enjoyed it, but also because I knew that I would leave your classroom with a deeper understanding of myself and a newfound desire to grow as a student

Dana Joan Tiedemann

Shannon Robinson Dear Mrs. Robinson, I chose you as my special teacher because you have been a mentor to me since my sophomore year. I have had the chance to have you as a math teacher in both pre-AP Algebra II and pre-cal. Both classes were very enjoyable and I learned a lot. It is easy to learn from a teacher that is fun and energetic. I have also had the chance to have you as my PAL teacher, which has been great! Having you as a teacher for the last three years has been very good because no matter what it is, I know that I will enjoy your class. You actually take time to get to know your students and you care about what is going on in our lives. By the happiness you bring into your classroom every day, I know that you enjoy your job and being here with all of your students. Every time you see me, you always say hi and ask how I am, even if it is multiple times in one day, which always makes me happy to go by your classroom. You also let me leave my bag in your classroom every day, which is very nice. You have not only been my teacher, but you have been someone that I have been able to talk to about anything in my life. If I need help with schoolwork or if I just need to talk, I know that I can come to you. It also makes me happy that you trust me babysitting your kids, they are the best! After I graduate, I know that I can continue to talk to you and share things going on in my life. I am going to miss having such an amazing teacher, but I am happy that I got the chance to learn from you. Thank you for being here today as my special teacher, you have really had a great impact on my life. Thank you,

Maci Wilbanks

Dr. Pam Jungman Dear Dr. Jungman, I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do with my life before you Dr. J. Before Pre-AP Chemistry and AP Chemistry, I was actually thinking about going into game design like the stereotypical teenage boy. I became interested in chemistry in your Pre-AP class, but upon entering the AP class, I became absolutely enthralled beyond belief. I began to look forward to seeing you and going to your class every day. I learned so many amazing things and I had so much fun with all the labs and everyday experiences with you. I found myself grasping concepts faster and faster as I fell in love with the subject, and I strongly believe that your love of the science and your endlessly positive attitude are the reason for this. I have now spent three years in your class, and I have to say that I have loved every moment of it. Every day I have seen you, from Pre-AP Chemistry to now, you are happy to see everyone, even if it’s the day before the AP exam and you’re actually freaking out on the inside like a crazy person. And even though you may act like a crazy person sometimes, you taught me many things in and outside of the curriculum, and I admire that so much. It’s just been an unforgettable three years. You have been an amazing teacher to me, one that will definitely be remembered as my favorites. As I go on to study chemical engineering in college and reach my 300 word limit of this letter, just know that I am going to miss you and your class so much. You made a huge impact on my life, and I will never forget you. Sincerely,

Wesley Wise

Rotary Club honors 4 AHS seniors BY MArk k. cAMPBeLL At its May 1 weekly meeting, the Azle Rotary Club lauded its final four students for the 201314 school year. A quartet of Azle High School seniors – Kalin Clark, Devin Mann, Tabithah Moreno, and Cody Cline – accepted certificates from Rotary President Steve Parker. Clark sports a grade point average of 94.04. He noted he had earned “commended” performance marks historically on all TAKS tests. He said he was highly mechanical and enjoys making re-

Lady Hornets fight off Brewer, advance to Sweet 16 Azle takes thrilling best-of-three series in Saginaw By MArk k. cAMpBeLL That was a series for the books. In fact, Azle High School softball coach Tracy Tadlock said the Azle-Brewer regional quarterfinals best-of-three battle should have been for a state berth. “It was an evenly matched series between two very talented teams,” Tadlock said. “It should have been a regional final series.” Azle (33-6) won the opener at the Saginaw Chisholm Trail HS diamond where all three games were played. Two runs in the top of the seventh gave the Lady Hornets a 3-2 win. The next game between the district rivals was the fourth one-run clash of the year. After trailing 10-4 entering the bottom of the sixth inning, AHS scored 7 runs to take an 11-10 lead to the seventh. Brewer got down to its last strike before a 2-run homer stunned the gathering and gave the Lady Bears the win, 12-11. In game three, the weary

Lady Bear hurler faltered, Tadlock recalled, and Azle took advantage of it, scoring 7 runs in the final 2 innings to win 9-3. “Their pitcher, who threw everything at us that she had, just ran out of gas in game three,” the coach said.

AHS hurler Makenzi Harris (17-4), who took a break in game two, shone in the finale. Samantha Bradley toed the rubber, “allowing us to give Makenzi a little rest in game two [that] paid huge dividends,” Tadlock said.

The coach lauded the hitting of Bekah Teel who went 5-for11 – 4 doubles and a triple – with 6 RBI in the series. Harris batted home 4 runners while going 4-for-11. Tadlock said, “The bottom of our lineup did an awesome job.”

Hall second at state meet, sets AHS mark going to work for me.” Adjustments Hall suggested to her vaulting coach led to the silver medal and a new AHS record of 13-0. Also competing in Austin was Isaac Marquez in the 400-meter dash. He finished seventh in a fast field on the windy Mike Myers oval. Marquez’s time of 49.0 seconds was his second quickest lap of the season, coach Mike Norwood said. “Competing at the state meet was a great experience for him,” Norwood said. He added that both he and Marquez felt the junior “could have run better. Being nervous and not knowing what to expect caused him to run tentatively the first 200 meters. “It was a great learning experience for Isaac.” Two azle athletes competed at the state track meet may 9. Isaac marquez (above right) finished seventh in the 400-meter dash. pole vaulter Sarah Hall competed her distinguished aHS career with a silver medal, setting a school record by clearing 13 feet.

I nearly had it at 13-3.” Dennis added, “Sarah literally out-fought, out-focused, and out-worked her competitors.” Missing that opening jump put even more pressure on the Lady Hornet, her coach said. “I think it is an incredible testament to her skill and mental focus to fight back to clearing the same height at the winner,” Dennis said. Hall’s advice to future AHS vaulters: “Work hard. Don’t be afraid to speak what’s on your mind. “In all my years of pole vaulting, I always did what my coach said. Like you’re supposed to.

Hall, a senior headed for UTA, and Emily Gunderson of Mont Belvieu Barbers Hill were battling for the gold. The Lady Hornet had missed her opening height. Then she cleared a third attempt at 12 feet, 9 inches to stay alive. Hall and Gunderson both missed three times at 13-3; because of more misses, the AHS athlete got the silver medal. Dennis said, “Her performance was one of the most impressive and gutsy performances I have seen in many years of coaching. Everybody there was

How hot was it? Oh, it was so hot that...


’m gonna have to eat that. It was the first warm day of the year and I was off on a leisurely jog through a park near an upscale Fort Worth neighborhood. The temperature was 85 degrees, but the “real feel” was 95. And it was freakishly dry – 12 percent humidity. In Texas! It was sunny and still. I took a long drink from the playground water fountain and padded down the path. It took all of five minutes for me to get “cotton mouth” – the super-drying event of your tongue gluing itself to your teeth and the roof of your mouth – as the low humidity combined with the sinus medications I’d been taking to rid me of any oral moisture. Still, I jogged on, enjoying the park’s freshly-leafed greenery. It felt like Colorado at times – cool in the shade but almost hot in direct sun. The path wound along a shriveled creek, suffering from the drought. About 15 minutes in, my thirst was more than nagging. I couldn’t unstick my lips without an effort and my sweat evaporated as quickly as it arrived. I stopped running and rested under a big tree. It was a couple miles back to my water bottle in the car or to the water

fountain at the trail’s beginning. I knew there was another playground up ahead. Turn around or press forward? When the Cars’ “Let’s Go” played in my headphones, I decided to head for the next playground and its fountain. Parched, I got there. An English guy was playing basketball with his son. I didn’t see a water fountain! But the English fellow said it was behind that bush. And it was. And it was turned off. Now I was 30 minutes from water – even the creek was dry here! I was hot and barely sweating anymore; that’s a bad sign, I knew from my years as an EMT. My mouth was gummy. I stood in the shade and pondered. Should I run back the way I came or proceed on the other side of the creek? I knew there was no water on my original route. Maybe there was a fountain on the opposite bank path. I cooled off a few minutes under that glorious shade, but I wasn’t getting any closer to water standing around. I padded off along the pitiful creek – it was West-Texas-in-August dry, dotted with barren, scorched white rocks and dead reeds. The sun shone more

ON YOUR MARK Mark K. Campbell on this side of the creek and I ran long stretches with it bearing down directly on me, searing my bare shoulders. I stopped again. Oh, man. I’m hot and tired and so thirsty! I’ve run 22,000 thousand miles and still this happened! Idiot!

I thought of a guy at church who told me a story of him falling out during a marathon; he staggered off the course from embarrassment and fell to the ground, crippled by heat exhaustion that was ebbing into the deadly heat stroke. With full-body cramps, he literally dragged his body back onto the course where someone stopped and gave him some water and electrolyte drinks. My friend finally got up and continued on. There was no one out here for me. I had to keep going. This side of the creek’s path was less traveled and dotted with crooked tree roots and rocks angled for tripping thirsty, shuffling old dudes. Up ahead was a boy working in his parents’ yard. I guess I could ask him for a drink. Or his water hose. But it’d probably freak him out – a dazed, red-faced, elderly weirdo staggering toward him. I jogged slowly past. I was now just a half mile from the car. But things were going downhill fast. Maybe I should go back to that boy and…wait. There…on the ground…by the footbridge. Someone has poured out their ice! Perched amid grass and leaves and bugs and who knew what else

were two small mounds of ice getting smaller as I watched. It was like a mirage. Was I gonna eat that ice off the ground? Absolutely! A couple of bikers pedaled past, eyeing me warily as I was hunched over, shoving this frozen nectar into my face. I hardly cared what they thought. It didn’t matter that I might be eating a fire ant or that some dog might’ve passed by or that the pourer could’ve been sick. This cold concoction was fantastic! Best. Ice. Ever. Five minutes later, I was good to go. I covered the final stretch and reached the car. I was still bone-dry, but, even with a van blocking me from opening my car door and a little boy determined to tell me about his soccer game, I finally got my water and sat on a bench in the shade for 20 minutes. Was this magical ice a minor miracle, one of those little wonders that we sometimes discount or simply shrug off as good luck? Was it some icy manna from heaven? What if I had passed by five minutes earlier or later? I just know that as I wolfed down that ice, “Whole Lotta Love” was playing in my ears – and I was loving that ice a whole lotta. Hallelujah! Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and the boy won his soccer game 2-0.

hristians should not be whiners or jerks. No, I am not referencing anyone in particular. Yes, you can quote me.” That was my Facebook post Friday morning. I said it in a conversation earlier in the day and it seemed worth sharing. (Writer’s occupational hazard). Some of you know that Life Matters appears in both blog and newspaper column format. Some may not know that I write another blog almost every day. Dr. G’s Morning Cup of Encouragement is posted every day except Friday (pretty much). You can find it at www.drgencouragement.blogspot. com. I’d love to have you join my community there. When I wrote that blog this morning, I thought it might be worth sharing with my Life Matters readers. So, here it is. “But the people remained silent and said nothing in reply, because the king had commanded, ‘Do not answer him.’” (Isaiah 36:21) There is a long back-story to this verse that is beyond the scope of this post. (It may, however result in a good sermon sometime). For our purposes today, let me just say that sometime

around 700 BC the Field Commander of the Assyrian army was publicly taunting the representatives of the king of Israel. He basically told them their God LIFE MATTERS that could not save Gerry Lewis them from the might of the Assyrian army. Instead of getting into a shouting match, or a negotiation, they listened and said nothing (following orders given by their king). A few days ago, I heard some good advice to leaders: “Sit down, shut up, and listen.” In our increasingly strident and argumentative culture, there seems to be a belief that arguments are won by volume and/or violence. We feel that we must shout louder or hit harder. And if we don't hit harder physically, then we must hit harder with our words. After all we have to stand up for what we believe! The responses that we often give

may actually call some of our beliefs into question. I am wondering today how some situations might be different if we were to pause and pray before we speak in these situations...If we were to ask God what we should say...If we were to ask God IF WE SHOULD SPEAK AT ALL. What if “just sayin’” were preceded by “just prayin’”? Question: What are some strategies you might employ to be sure that your words are guided by God? I think that’s a pretty good question. I heard another good quote this week: “Choose being Godly over being great.” There may not be a better example of that than the words we choose. “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks…But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.” (Matthew 12:34; 36) Our lives matter so much to God that He cares about what and how we speak. I’m just sayin’. Azle resident Dr. Gerry Lewis is director of missions for the Harvest Baptist Association, which is headquartered in Decatur. He writes a blog at

Pioneer wife not too happy about heading out West


learned some new information about the very Western community of Greeley, Colorado through the story of a pioneer woman who lived there. I found the story of Annie Green in a new book by Gail M. Beaton, Colorado Women: A History." Annie reluctantly traveled West with her husband in 1870. Along with many others, Annie's husband (whose first name Beaton never mentioned) read the glowing reports of opportunity in Horace Greeley's New York Tribunenewspaper. Nathan Meeker, agricultural editor of the Tribune, led an experimental reform group called the Union Colony in 1870 after a trip to Colorado the previous year. Greeley, a reformer, supported the plan and advertised that settlers go to the South Platte River basin on the Overland Trail. It was located near where a stage station had been built in 1862, later called Fort Latham. Apparently the first white child born in Col-

orado, a girl, had been born at that site. Both Greeley and Meeker wanted their Union Colony to be one of “high moral standards” and promised that alcohol would be prohibited. As many as 3,000 interested Americans applied. Meeker and Greeley chose 200 of them to start. This was to be a “cooperative” and applicants had to purchase shares. They were guaranteed land of their own. With the money he earned from selling shares, Greeley bought 2,000 acres where the South Platte met the Cache la Poudre River. Agricultural writer Meeker introduced new farming techniques, and the community – named Greeley – was successful. The town of Greeley with the Greens as residents began building houses and irrigation ditches. Both Greeley and Meeker stressed temperance, religion, education, hard work and family values. They attracted like minded settlers. No saloons, theatres or billiard rooms existed. Some liked

it, but others complained of boredom. Annie Green started a bakery in her home in town while her husband worked five days a week out on their land.

Pate pany. band and children loved Colorado, but she did not. In 1876 the entire family began staying in their town house so the children could attend school. To have something to do, and to try to make a little money, Annie began to write. She composed songs, plays and a

small booklet of their life in Greeley, Ten Years in the Great American Desert, which was a humorous satire. She also organized an amateur acting group to perform her plays. Meeker in 1878 was appointed an agent at the Ute White River site, but angry Utes did not like his methods and agricultural innovations. They killed him the next year and captured his wife and adult daughter. The two women were released three weeks later. The testimony of his daughter Josephine Meeker before Congress about their being raped, along with Meeker's death, caused the government to move the Utes out of Colorado to less desirable land in Utah. In 1886 Annie Green listed what her family accomplished in their 16 years in Greeley: a farm of 160 acres, plus 20 acres in another direction from town, two lots in the city and a herd of 100 animals, probably mostly cattle. They raised potatoes, grain and alfalfa. In 1887, however, the Green family

left Colorado to go back to Pennsylvania from where they had come nearly 17 years earlier. Beaton did not cite any reason why. (I wish I had Annie's book, which might answer that question.) Of course, Annie was thrilled to be returning East, even though various relatives there had died while she was in the West. The population of Greeley, Colo. in the time that the Greens lived there grew from 480 people in 1870 to 1,297 in 1880. In the census of 1890, three years after they left, the population reached 2,395. Today, with nearly 100,000 people, Greeley is the twelfth largest city in Colorado. I would like to know what happened to Annie Green after they got back to Pennsylvania, if they fared well there, and if she ever regretted leaving the West. Perhaps they even came back!

Court decision upholds prayer in public meetings


overnmental bodies’ right to begin meetings with a prayer — so long as the prayer does not favor a particular religious denomination — was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision rendered May 5. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott reacted to the decision in Town of Greece, New York v. Galloway et al. “I am pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court has once again upheld the longstanding and constitutionally protected right of governmental bodies to begin their meetings with prayer,” Abbott said. Texas was one of 23 states that joined in a brief arguing against a circuit court of appeals decision declaring unconstitutional a New York local governmental body’s tradition of opening its public meetings with a prayer.

Movie Man

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Bad Neighbors in every sense of the word Quickly it becomes apparent that this 2014 Neighbors has no relation to the 1981 version that was, sadly, John Belushi's fi nal movie. They do share the fact that neither one of them is very good. About the film Belushi, who died of a drug overdose in 1982, didn’t make many movies. Two are beloved (Animal House [1978], The Blues Brothers [1980]), one’s a cult classic (Goin’ South [1978 with Jack Nicholson]), one’s highly underrated (1941 [1979, Steven Spielberg’s “worst” movie; it’s jampacked with madcappery – moreso than just about any movie ever made]), and one’s a better than average romantic comedy (Continental Divide [1981, “the only time Belushi got to really act”). Then there’s ‘81’s Neighbors, which was highly anticipated when it arrived because it reunited Belushi with his Saturday Night Live buddy Dan Aykroyd. However, their idea of switching roles – originally Belushi was to be the brash neighbor while Aykroyd was set for the more passive role – clearly misfi red. Despite a massive holiday release with both actors at their peak, word got out fast that the movie was a turkey. The main actors hated director John G. Avildsen (Rocky [Best Picture, 1976]), Neighbors was rewritten often, and word of mouth killed it quickly. This new Neighbors also got a massive release and opened gigantically at $49 million. It also has bad leaving-the-auditorium buzz like its (totally differently-plotted) former namesake. And it stars an actor who is hot right now, Seth Rogen. He’s had his share of dogs like Funny People (2009, Movie Man No. 836, a 4, the Adam Sandler

bomb) and Guilt Trip (2012). His hipster popularity comes from highly overrated R-rated comedies: Knocked Up (2007, MM #721, 4), Superbad (2007, MM #732, 2), perhaps the most undeservedly beloved movie of the millennium so far, even with Rogen’s lesser role), Pineapple Express (2008, 785, 5), Observe and Report (2009, MM #820, 4) and This Is the End (2013, which the Movie Man wisely missed in theaters, but caught later [5]). The Movie Man will acknowledge that, again in a small role, Rogen gets some cred for being in Donnie Darko (2001], for his voicing of Mantis in the Kung Fu Panda movies (I: 2008, MM #778, 6; II: 2011, MM #932, 6), 50/50 (2011, MM #950, 7), and his part in the Beastie Boys’ 2011 music video Fight for Your Right Revisited. But there’s little to fi nd good about Neighbors, another Rrated “comedy” that’s anything but funny.

Vinson resigns as ESD1 Chief Watson new Acting Chief by carla noah stutsman ParkerCountyEmergency Services District 1 (ESD1) announced the May 8 resignation of Eric Vinson as Fire Chief of ESD1. In a new release, ESD Board President Rena Peden said “We would like to thank Chief Vinson for his past service and wish him the very best.” Peden went on to say the Board will work to devise a plan for moving forward. Until that time, Assistant Chief

Stephen Watson has been asked to take on the role of Acting Chief for the ESD, Peden said. Recently, ESD1 hired an Assistant Chief to handle training and reporting responsibilities. The duties in that position will be adjusted as necessary to allow support for Acting Chief Watson, Peden explained. “Over the last two years, ESD1 has grown dramatically with the successful annexation of the Peaster, Silver Creek, and Aledo Fire Departments,”

Peden said. “In those two years, the ESD has purchased four new fire engines and hired six new staff members. “The public can be assured this Board is dedicated to making decisions that will position us to meet all operational challenges and respond to the rapid growth in the District,” Peden said. Vinson, reached by phone Monday, May 12, said the firefighters, officers and departments within ESD1 are “in my opinion, the best in the county and in the area. “They devote so much of their lives and time to making ESD1 a good organization, and I was privileged to be at the helm,” Vinson said. “I made the decision to resign based on

a lot of facts, but especially for the District to continue to grow into the best it can be.” He added, “ESD1 has three very good chiefs in Ellis, Bradford, and Watson. They’re all just awesome, awesome guys. You’ll continue to see great things out of ESD1 regardless of who’s at the helm. It’s about who they surround themselves with.” Vinson said while it’s unfortunate he felt he had to resign, he wishes the District and those who make it what it is nothing but the best. He’s looking into his options resigned Eric Vinson in for employment, but said he action at a structure fire in Former EsD1 Fire chief Eric Vinson presents an award armadillo hills in Decem- hopes he doesn’t have to relocate. “I’ve gained a tremendous during the 2011 awards banquet. ber 2013.

PCSO warns of another scam Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler is warning the public of another shady scam by con artists. In mid-April, a 78-year-old Parker County woman told deputies she received a call from a man impersonating a police officer from the Dominican Republic. The suspect conned the victim into sending $7,000 in cash as “bail money” for one of her family members who was allegedly incarcerated after being at-

fault in an auto accident which occurred out of the country. The suspect allowed the victim to speak with another male suspect, impersonating the victim’s alleged family member. The suspect convinced the victim to place $100 bills between pages of several magazines and package the money to a forwarding address in the Dominican Republic. After she sent the money, other family members told the

victim she had fallen for a scam, and encouraged her to report the incident to the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies contacted the mail delivery company to report the incident, attempt to have the delivery canceled, and have it returned to the victim. The shipping company later reported the package had already been delivered and the suspects picked it up – and the cash. “It is disheartening to know anyone would take advantage

of another person,” Sheriff Fowler said. “What is surprising is that a second suspect impersonated the victim’s family member. They knew her name, the family member’s name and personal information. We strongly suggest anyone who receives similar calls immediately verify the information and contact your local law enforcement agency to report the incident prior to sending any type of payment.”
