One killed, one injured in Briar Road shooting

Marching Green Pride

Suspect arrested the following day By CHRIS AgEE Tarrant County authorities arrested an Azle man Aug. 15 for the shooting death of another man the previous night. According to reports, the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department Metro Fugitive Unit tracked Christopher Adam Osborne, 20, to a Parker County location in the 600 block of New Hope Road. He initially attempted to evade arrest by running through an adjacent hay field, though authorities were able to apprehend him after a short foot pursuit. Osborne is wanted in connection to a shooting Aug. 14 in the 13000 block of Briar Road, just north of Azle. The shooting took place outside of a home at the location and resulted Christopher Adam Osborn in the death of 31-yearold Gabriel Richardson. A bystander was hit by a bullet fragment and injured, authorities report. As of Aug.19, Osborne remained in Tarrant County jail under $25,000 bond for one count of murder and $15,000 for one count of assault with a deadly weapon. An acquaintance of the victim, who requested not to be identified, expressed concern with the bond amount set by Tarrant County authorities. “I’m having a hard time because the guy’s bail is $25,000 and I’m scared nothing is going to happen to him and he’ll get off easy,” the source stated. Richardson’s fiancée, Cheyenne Bridges, said she is expecting the couple’s first child in a few months and now faces the prospect of raising a baby without him. “Gabe was very, very much loved,” she said. “We were starting a family and our child is going to grow up fatherless.” Bridges said Richardson also leaves behind a 15-yearold daughter.

The Marching green pride took to the new turf on Hornet Field for the first time – under the new lights – Aug. 19.

Azle ISD holds convocation There was cheering and some weeping but mainly cheering at the annual Azle ISD convocation Aug. 19. The pep rally where AISD employees prepare to usher in another school year was held at the Azle High School auditorium and revved up the hundreds of employees necessary to run a school district. Student council member Candace Ortiz opened the event. Then, superintendent Dr. Ray Lea spoke encouraging words. He drew loud cheers when announcing that every AISD employee would receive a four percent raise this year. After hearing from school board president Bill Lane, Azle Education Foundation representative Philippe Lalonde said that Azle Elementary for the third year in a row had the most participation in payroll deductions. Mayor Alan Brundrett noted drug test kits are available free to any junior high or high school parent. Chamber of Commerce president Cynthia Willeford continued the positive message emphasizing of how vital each member of the ISD is. PLEASE SEE AISD, PAGE 2A.

Hit-and-run claims life of Azle man APD police continue searching for suspect By CHRIS AgEE According to Azle police reports, a pedestrian died after being struck by a passing vehicle in the 1200 block of State Highway 199. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as Donald Buerger, 35, of Azle. The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 17 and Buerger was pronounced dead at the scene. Police received reports of the crash and

responded to the location to find a vehicle in the median of the highway and its driver standing nearby. Police said the man was an eyewitness of the collision and indicated the driver responsible nearly struck his vehicle a short time earlier. The witness described the driver as a white male, but he was not at the scene upon arrival of authorities. According to the witness, the pedestrian was walking in the westbound lanes of 199

and was struck by a vehicle – possibly a pickup truck – heading the same direction. Reports show the Azle Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division and Advanced Accident Investigation Team responded to the scene to conduct further analysis and crash reconstruction. Authorities are pursuing the case against the fleeing driver on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death or serious bodily injury.

School board trustees call bond All AISD personnel to get 4 percent raise By MARk k. CAMpBELL Just hours after Azle ISD superintendent Dr. Ray Lea told hundreds of school employees that a four percent raise was coming, it did indeed, approved at the Aug. 19 school board meeting. The board voted unanimously to boost the pay of all district employees. The trustees also locked in a $20 million bond package by a 7-0 vote. The bond The $20 million bond will cover three areas – a career and technology center; a performance/competition gym; and the acquisition and installation of a fire protection sprinkler system. Should the Nov. 5 bond pass, the monies can only be used for that designated trio. “You are married to those three,” said bond counsel Jeff Gulbas. He also cautioned board members about electioneering, a “gray area in the election code” that prohibits public money or time being used to advocate for the bond. He stressed, however, that everyone has freedom of speech and that board members

could “speak as citizens.” A 30-day, post-election waiting period is mandatory. However projects could be begun then reimbursed. The exact locations of bond polling places were discussed. County clerks have that information, they were informed, and the proper voting venues would soon be declared, the board was told. Even with the bond’s passing, Azle would remain the lowest tax rate in North Texas, Lea said. Raises and budget Monica Miller, AISD director of finance, took the board through the maze of numbers that included a four percent raise for every district employee. Her official budget detailed anticipated revenues of $49,129,552 with expenditures projected at $48,660,530. Fifty-four percent ($24.66 million) of that tally goes to instruction followed at six percent by food service ($2.8 million) and campus administration ($2.51 million). Overall, the budget rose 6.77 percent; however, the Texas Legislature infused

the district with $1.8 million in new funds. Staff development Tanya Anderson, executive directors of curriculum/administration, told the board that Azle is sterling when it comes to staff development. She noted that 342 staff members attended the 75 courses offered. “I am proud of this,” she said. In an earlier survey, teachers said they wanted more instruction on handling reluctant students, the integration of technology, and iPads use and those areas were focused on. Every campus in the AISD met Texas expectations. In fact, Azle exceeded statewide requirements, Anderson noted. Specific benchmarks must be met and she said Azle shone in that area. Three elementary schools – Eagle Heights, Cross Timbers, and Azle – achieved “above and beyond,” landing in the top two percent of the state. “Not many have even one school in the PLEASE SEE 4 pERCENT, PAGE 2A.

Virginia fugitive nabbed just south of Azle in Parker County By Chris Agee A man wanted for numerous sex crime charges was arrested recently in Parker County after eluding authorities in his native state of Virginia. According to local reports, officers with the Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (FAST) were able to track down Darrell Wayne Delp Sr., 36, of Concord, Va., who was ultimately discovered and arrested on Cattle Baron Drive, just south of Azle. He faces charges out of Campbell County, Va., including two counts of producing child pornography and two counts of rape of a child under the age of 13.

NEWS DIGEST

County Sheriff Larry Fowler said his agency immediately began its search. “Our FAST unit promptly began investigating the location of the suspect,” he said. “Due to the serious nature and numerous pending charges, we felt it was imperative to immediately remove Delp from the streets.” Along with U.S. Marshals, deputies surrounded the area near the Cattle Baron Drive home of Delp’s relative. Fowler said training and preparation resulted in the suspect’s uneventful arrest. “They are quick and efficient,” he said of FAST officers. “They are to be commended for an excellent job in this case and their everyday operations.” As of Aug. 19, Delp remained in the custody of the Parker County Sheriff’s Office without bond for the four Virginia charges and four fugitive warrants. Reports indicate he could face more than seven additional charges currently pending in Virginia.

and limited incomes to have to put up with rising water rates, rising gas prices, rising food prices, car insurance, health insurance, and increased medical costs and then say the reason you can’t consider that for them is because the city can’t find a way to trim their budget,” he opined. Johnson also addressed the fact Tarrant

County, not Parker, collects Reno taxes. He said this creates confusion and undue hassle for many citizens. “We’re powerless to do anything about it except come to you all,” he said. “What I ask council to do is place it on the agenda to cancel the contract with Tarrant County and let Parker County collect our taxes.” Though council members could not re-

spond to Johnson directly, city staff addressed his concerns, explaining Tarrant County distributes tax revenue far more efficiently than Parker County. According to staff, the city will provide assistance for anyone having difficulties with tax officials in that county as well as those interested in advancing petitions to get other tax issues on next year’s ballot.

He is emphasizing education among the ranks, noting most of current officers are receiving college education and continually increasing their knowledge of state laws. “The first general order for my officers is to provide the most professional service to the community,” Farris said. To provide necessary equipment on a limited budget, the interim chief has enrolled in the Department of Defense Law Enforcement program. Through this partnership, municipalities receive used military equipment at no cost. Farris has also joined forces with the Sansom Park Police Department in an effort to advance the agency’s technological

He said Sansom Park officers have always been cooperative and looks forward to introducing in-car computer systems, cameras, and updated dispatching service to his department. “It’s high time that needs of the citizens as well as visitors to Pelican Bay are met,” he noted. “My officers are here to serve and protect and that is exactly what we are going back to.” This partnership also affects the department’s non-emergency line, which now routes through Sansom Park.

FBI sends out nationwide request, still hunting down killer’s itinerary Keyes robbed Azle bank in 2012 By Mark K. Campbell The FBI Anchorage Division sent a request out nationwide about a criminal that made headlines in Azle. On Feb. 16, 2012 Israel Keyes robbed the National Bank of Texas on Commerce. According to a detailed timeline released by the FBI, that event marked the possible end of what was a multi-year string of murders and criminal activity. Investigators believe that Keyes is responsible for far more than the crimes – including several murders – that he confessed to before committing suicide last December. Long before he arrived in Azle, Keyes traveled throughout America and internationally as well. The FBI believes his trail of victims and atrocities might be much more de-

tailed and numerous than he admitted. His illicit journey began in the summer of 1997 or ‘98 with a sexual assault of an Oregon teen. He first killed somewhere between July and October of 2001 in Washington, the FBI reported. From there, Keyes began crisscrossing the country, often returning to Alaska. The timeline becomes more detailed in 2007 and the FBI has information that Keyes ventured to both coasts – especially Alaska and New York – as well as Canada. On June 8, 2011, he killed a couple in Essex, Vermont. On Feb. 1, 2012, the day before he flew to New Orleans for a cruise, Keyes abducted and murdered an Anchorage woman.

‘Prayer warriors’ to convene at city park Aug. 22 event to cap off 40-day prayer event

The cruise ended Feb. 11 and Keyes left New Orleans for Texas. The FBI believes he committed another homicide in Texas before arriving in Aledo Feb. 16. That day, he burned a home and, following the arson, drove to Azle and robbed the Bank of Texas. On Feb. 17, he was back in Anchorage. In March, Keyes was arrested in Lufkin at a traffic stop. Eventually, Keyes hung himself in jail, on Dec. 2, 2012 in Alaska. The FBI wants to fill in the blanks in the timeline, especially, locally, between the bank robbery and the return to Texas that led to his Lufkin arrest. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the FBI at 1-800-CALLFBI.

By Chris Agee A group of local residents invite the community to take part in a prayer walk around the Central Park Aug. 22. The event was planned as the culmination of similar gatherings each evening through much of the summer. One participant, Susynn Yates, said she was introduced to the impromptu conventions during a recent outing. “I just happened to be at the park one day and a group of prayer warriors was there,” she said. Invocations sought guidance and protection for local and national leaders, she explained, and have been held at the park since it opened. “This year, they decided to do a 40day walk,” Yates explained. “For 40

days, at 7:30 p.m. every day, somebody is out there...praying for our schools, for our city leaders, for our mayor, for anybody in power over us.” She said she has gotten to know the initial participant, whose public prayers for Azle extend back 20 years. “With the park in place, for the past five years he’s been walking the park and praying,” she noted. As the event wraps up, she said anyone interested is welcome to take part in the final day of prayer. “On the 40th day [Aug. 22], that’s when they’re going to march around our park seven times,” Yates said, an act meant to “symbolize the walls of Jericho falling down.” As with prior walks, the event will begin at 7:30 p.m.

THAZ board names two new members By Chris Agee In addition to electing its new chair and vice chair, the Texas Health Harris Methodist hospital Azle board of trustees named two new members to fill vacated positions. “We are proud to have the Azle community represented by such dedicated members,” said Texas Health Azle President Bob Ellzey. Former chair Steve Parker – who left the board to join the newly created Texas Health Resource Board of Trustees Southwest Zone Sub-Committee – will be succeeded by

local attorney Gracie Galindo. Parker’s new position will allow him to serve seven hospitals in the region. Galindo, an active member of the community, said she anticipates advancing the emphasis on leadership shown by previous boards. Board member Russell Barudis was selected to replace Parker as board chair. His new vice chair will be Tanya Anderson. Another vacant position on the board will be filled by Tony Haas. The longtime local has been a part of nu-

merous non-profit and educational programs over the past two decades. Haas, a former Azle councilman and mayor pro tem, also serves on the Azle Educational Foundation board. The board oversees hospital quality and patient satisfaction and serves three-year terms. “I am pleased to welcome Gracie and Tony and wish Steve the best as they embark upon the next phase of their journey in serving Azle and the surrounding communities,” Ellzey said.

At least the patented Zip-Loc sitive five-year-old granddaughter got

stung by a jellyfish that had somehow made it through all the seaweed in the waves. I carried her up the steps, along the seawall, across the busy roadway, to the complex, all the way to the back, up the stairs, and into the condo where meat tenderizer awaited for her and an asthma inhaler for me. That long jaunt reminded me, once again, that life was so much easier at 37 than today’s 57. The capper came with a visit to the Rainforest Café. The angelic 20-month-old granddaughter has already mastered smartphones and was playing Temple Run, a game where you run along ruins in a jungle pursued by angry giant monkeys. She fell asleep playing then woke up after we had been seated in the restaurant – right under four giant, animatronic gorillas who suddenly bolted to life and began screeching madly. Poor Jubilee might be scarred for life. One other thing about the Rainforest Café: It was deafening in there. The three loudest things on earth: 3) jet engine; 2) Who concert; 1) Rainforest Café. It’s hard to eat your $11 hamburger when it’s vibrating around the plate. Still, we had a fine vacation. The treasure hunt was a hit – how did thousands of summer visitors to the beach miss the box hidden against the seawall under jetsam with directions to it found in a message in a bottle scooped up in a bucket out of the ocean?! – and the bike ride along the seawall was fun. Vacations are for memories and it’s the unusual moments you’ll remember. We certainly had a memorable vacation. Still, I wish I had returned home with more car than I started with. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and is worried about a Mexican vacation planned for Sept.

Famous Hatfield and McCoy feud finally settled

M

ost of us have heard of the feuding Hatfields and McCoys, and a History Channel show covered them in 2012. I learned a lot from a book at the Azle library written by Dean King. His 430-page, wellresearched true story The Feud is too complicated to summarize in the length of this column, but nevertheless I'm giving it a try. The Hatfields were of English ancestry, and the McCoys Scots-Irish. The two families settled near the banks of the Big Sandy River near a branch of it called the Tug Fork. When West Virginia did not secede during the Civil War, the river thus divided Kentucky from West Virginia. The Hatfields lived mostly on the West Virginia side of the river, and the McCoys mostly in Kentucky. There were exceptions and intermarriages between the two families. Both fami-

THE

lies supported the Confederacy. The trouble began when Harmon McCoy joined the Union side. Discharged early because of a broken leg, Harmon came home but was warned that he might expect a "visit" from a group called the Wildcats headed by William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield. Harmon hid out in a cave, supplied with food by a servant. An assailant followed the latter's tracks in the snow and killed Harmon. Devil Anse was suspected, but he was sick in bed at the time. A man named Jim Vance, uncle of Devil Anse, apparently did it, but was never prosecuted. Folks said Harmon McCoy brought it on himself for joining the Union. Fourteen years later trouble erupted again when Harmon's brother Randall said Floyd Hatfield stole his hogs. The issue was taken to court and the testimony of Bill Staton (kin to both sides) was the deciding factor for Floyd Hatfield winning. Later two McCoy brothers killed Staton but got

off on the plea of self defense. Another cause of enmity between Hatfields and McCoys concerned Johnse Hatfield and Roseanna McCoy. The two young people met on election PAGES FROM day, which was of the better WESTERN one social events of HISTORY the year. People in their J’Nell L. Pate dressed finest. Women couldn't vote, but they could catch up on all the gossip. Rosanna and Johnse lost themselves in the crowd and then walked away from the area.

16 children. Johnse put Roseanna on the back of his horse and took her to his family's house. His father Devil Anse Hatfield said they would take her home the next day. Randall's temper flared when he learned that Roseanna was at the Hatfields. He said he would have nothing else to do with her. Later when he learned that they were not married, he ordered her home, but she refused. "I'll bring her home if I have to kill every Hatfield in West Virginia," he said. Roseanna came home to prevent bloodshed, but McCoy relatives saw that Johnse was arrested when he came to Kentucky to sell moonshine. The worst conflict of all came on election day in 1882 when a fight occurred. Tempers flared when folks had imbibed too much whiskey. Ellison Hatfield, a brother of Devil Anse, was stabbed 26 times by one McCoy and shot by a second. The Hatfields said that if Ellison died, they would shoot three McCoy brothers (sons of RanEditor Mark K. Campbell

dall) involved in the fight. He died, and Hatfields captured the brothers (one innocent) and riddled them all with bullets. It took awhile to arrest Hatfields involved and try them in 1888. One man hanged and others got prison sentences. After a few years a governor of West Virginia was a Hatfield and pardoned a couple of them. In 1891 a Hatfield wrote a letter to the editor of one of the local newspapers that the feuding families had declared an amnesty. One of his cousins was marrying a McCoy. There were plenty McCoys and Hatfields who did not take part in the feud, and yes, more than one marriage occurred between them. Near the turn of the 21st century a couple of McCoy cousins organized a reunion of Hatfield and McCoy descendants. Well over 1,000 attended. It is still held each year.

County judge reviews packed bad smell meeting

T

he Texas Commission on Enviromental Quality (TCEQ) public meeting held August 13 in Springtown was well attended by residents from Parker and Wise Counties. At stake is the future rule making regarding the ability of outside companies to dump municipal waste on rural Texas, without any constraints, or at a minimum, without proper enforcement of the rules when the company violates them. Our citizens are to be commended for their thoughtful participation in the process. Commissioners George Conley, Craig Peacock and Larry Walden were in attendance as

If that is true, then the applica- some reporting requirements tion in this case was not done for the companies, it changed

the law from a permit process to a registration process. Liability insurance minimums were to be reduced. Companies could also dispose of grease trap waste and grit trap waste in addition to the waste now disposed of in rural Texas. Thankfully this ill-conceived piece of legislation was killed on a point of order by State Rep. Geanie Morrison (R) Victoria. I tell folks do not expect the practice to be stopped. The key for those affected is to insist upon rules that are fair to the community, not just one-sided for the companies. We must insist on proper enforcement of the rules. Not selective enforcement. State agencies (specifically TCEQ and the Texas Railroad Commission) are not

known for always protecting the citizens in issues like this. Instead, the benefit of the doubt is given to the alleged violators. As a community, and as Texans, we want what is right, fair and just for all parties. There will be plenty of opposition to any change. At the hearing for HB2996 the companies were in full force. What you can expect to see is the companies might agree to some changes (perhaps similar to those in HB2996) in exchange for what amounts to a more lenient process in the long term, and the ability to change the product. Having watched similar processes in Austin before, it can quickly become a “smoke and mirrors” process. The deadline for submitting

written comments on the rule changes is August 30th. I encourage residents to submit their recommendations. Be specific about how you think the rules should be written and enforced. In addition, when the hearing is held in Austin before the TCEQ Commission, participation by residents is important. The industry, their lobbyists and municipalities will be in attendance fighting any meaningful change. We need to stand together to insure this process does not become worse than it currently is.

Abbott explains opposition to proposed airline merger; lizard battle lines drawn

A

ttorneys general of Texas, Arizona, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia joined in the U.S. Justice Department’s Aug. 13 anti-trust lawsuit intended to block the merger of Fort Worth-headquartered American Airlines and Tempe, Ariz., headquartered US Airways. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, in an Aug. 16 opinion piece first published by the Dallas Morning News, explained why he opposes the merger of the two carriers. Here's an excerpt: “Why in the world would Texas file a legal action challenging the merger of American Airlines with US Airways?” Abbott asked in his opinion piece. He answered his own question this way: “We believe that actions by the airlines and their officials violate antitrust laws. In fact,

the legal violations appear so overt that it would offend my oath of office not to take action. “The legal action is based on evidence such as internal emails, investor presentations and other comments by top executives of the airlines. Those documents reveal their thinking about how shrinking competition in the airline industry — and, hence the merger — will allow the airlines to pile even more bag fees, ticket change fees and increased fares on customers. American and US Airways compete directly on thousands of heavily traveled routes. The merger would allow the new company to shed that competition and distort the marketplace — while harming competition for nearly 200 Texas routes.” American Airlines, in an Aug. 13 statement, announced plans “to mount a vigorous and strong defense to the U.S. Department of Justice’s effort to block their proposed merg-

Feral hog grants awarded Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples on Aug. 15 announced the award of two feral hog abatement grants totaling $55,000 to certain Texas counties in an effort to enhance statewide feral hog abatement. Bell County, in partnership with Coryell, Falls, Hamilton and Milam counties, was awarded $25,000 to support abatement efforts and $30,000 was awarded to a partnership

between Caldwell and Hays counties, the agriculture department reported. “The feral hog population has exploded in the last 20 years, costing Texans untold millions of dollars,” Staples said. According to the agency, Texas is home to the largest feral hog population in the United States with nearly 2.6 million of the wild pigs. These voracious, intelligent, wide-ranging mammals cause about $500 million in damage in rural and urban Texas each year, the agency estimated. New laws to take effect Some 659 pieces of legislation passed in the 140-day regular session of the 83rd Texas Legislature, Jan. 8 through May 27, 2013, will take effect as new laws in a few days, on Sept. 1. Veteran state reporter and legislative analyst Ed Sterling is member services director for the Texas Press Association, whose 518 member newspapers have combined circulation of 3.7 million.

Fish & Wildlife, in a June 13 statement, said, “After a careful analysis of the scientific data and the protections provided by the voluntary conservation efforts, Service biologists determined the lizard is no longer in danger of extinction, nor likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future.”

Lady Hornets 6th in Saginaw tournament by mark k. campbell New volleyball coach Jennifer Robinson moved the Lady Hornets’ first tournament from Wimberley to Saginaw. Playing closer to home Aug. 15-17, Azle (5-5) got in a slew of matches, eight to be exact. Play began with a victory over Saginaw Chisholm Trail. AHS won, 21-25, 25-17, 25-22. Later that Thursday, Keller Fossil Ridge edged the Lady Hornets 24-26, 25-15, 23-25. A tough loss to Fort Worth Christian, 25-27, 24-26, ended day one. Friday started with a twogame sweep of Lake Worth, 25-19, 25-21.

Then Irving Nimitz fell to AHS 26-24, 25-21. Boswell concluded the second day of the tournament; Azle lost 12-25, 8-25. Saturday, Aug. 17 started with a victory, 25-23, 25-7, over Haltom. Azle’s last match in the Saginaw event pitted the Lady Hornets against Burleson Centennial. AHS lost in three, 25-16, 21-25, 22-25. Brooke Smith was named to the All-Tournament team. Next up for Azle is a tournament in Graham (Aug. 23-24) followed by the first regular season home game, against Mineral Wells Aug. 27.

Reserve seats now available for AHS ball

Azle High School head football coach Devon Dorris spoke to Rotarians Aug. 8. He lauded the new indoor facility and upgrades at Hornet Field “that will benefit so many, not just the football team.” He said the Hornets play in one of the toughest districts in Texas. “That's no excuse; we're excited for the challenge. We may not be the fastest or biggest, but we'll have the biggest heart and we will be the toughest. No one will out-work us,” Dorris said. Photo by Mark K. Campbell

Movie Man

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Time trek highlights many black days of history You don’t see a lot of straight up dramas anymore. There was a time when movies with Big Important Themes were churned out in Hollywood, sent out to the sad Midwestern masses that needed some liberal educating. The Butler has a serious whiff of that Old School downtalking – but, dang, it’s pretty good down-talking. About the film Actually, the proper title of The Butler is Lee Daniels’ The Butler, changed because Warner Bros. claimed the former as a copyrighted title – almost 100 years ago. The Butler has the omnipotent Oprah Winfrey behind it and that counts for a lot. The Movie Man is no Oprah hata; she’s turned a generation on to reading and there is no better example of the American Success Story. Another good thing about Oprah is that, at the height of her mighty powers she dared to make an exceptionally daring movie from an exceptionally daring novel, Beloved (1998 Movie Man No. 256, a 6). Oprah can act. She was nominated for an Academy Award her first time out for her trying role as Sethe in The Color Purple. (Sadly, the 1985 movie is most remembered as going 0-for-11 at the Oscars.) Followers of their beloved Oprah didn’t know what to think about the hard R, startling Beloved. It opened to mixed reviews, and word of mouth about how shocking it was killed it in three weeks. It made back less than half its cost back. For the Movie Man, Beloved was one of those rare instances where a movie ended up being much different and better than he expected. He’s seen a lot of movies, but several scenes from the film still pop into his head 15 years later. The good thing about Oprah is her daring to take on unattractive roles. She does it again

in The Butler and she’s mighty good once more. (Not that she can’t be OK in other parts, even as herself in a funny episode of TV’s 30 Rock.) The plot Young Cecil (Forest Whitaker) flees the horror of the cotton fields. But, on his own, he discovers a solo black man finds little solace (or work or food) wandering the South. Starving, he breaks into a business and is caught. With rudimentary houseboy skills, he is taught to work and not be seen in upscale all-white establishments. One day, he catches the eye of the man responsible for hiring the White House staff. As a butler, Whitaker, ever subservient yet understanding that his lot in life has improved tremendously for him and his family – including wife Gloria (Oprah) and two sons, Lewis (David Oyelowo) and Charlie – becomes the most popular butler for seven presidents. But Whitaker’s home life is a mess. Oprah’s a hard drinker who begins to get a wandering eye when Whitaker’s job requires some long hours. And Oyelowo grows up to become a Civil Rights protester, much to the dismay of his parents. The contrast between the

Movie Man generational lifestyles is hammered home: Whitaker silently serving while rising several notches in his life and Oyelowo fighting the power and injustice, constantly getting jailed. While Whitaker waits on presidents from Eisenhower to Reagan, Oyelowo grows militant, tries politics, and finally becomes a social activist in the ‘80’s. Eventually, the unbending father sees that his son is not the wayward soul he seems. What works While Oprah’s in fine form again, so is Oyelowo. He’s the real co-star with Whitaker and he’s super.

King of Scotland playing Idi Amin, is strong, but this role is a lesser one than Scotland. That one was the role of a lifetime – but as The Butler could get some sort of honors nod. Daniels’ direction is very good. The movie is over two hours long and it’s never boring. (But see What doesn’t work) The movie travels decades and the styles of music and clothing are well realized – especially with the groovy 1970’s clothes. There’s a lot of stunt casting here. Old-timers will wince at Jane Fonda playing Nancy Reagan. Music fans will enjoy spying Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz.

Stars playing the presidents vary. Robin Williams as Eisenhower is fair, John Cusack not so much as Nixon. The Movie Man liked gutsy Liv Schreiber as LBJ best. Best scene Oyelowo has brought his revolutionary girlfriend to a family dinner. Things run off the rails early with Oprah trying to be the peacemaker. But when Oyelowo dares to insult Whitaker’s profession, Oprah turns on him and his blank of a girlfriend and throws them out in a huff. It’s a great scene. What doesn’t work The Butler really staggers at the end, becoming the preachy liberal movie that so many conservatives were afraid it was. The last 15 minutes could go. There’s a Forrest Gump youare-there funk all about The Butler. The movie is almost like a travelogue through pivotal points in history – that’s fine, but you can click off your fingers what’s coming next. By piling all those monumental points up, the film loses some clout. A stronger focus on a few specifics would’ve worked better. The rating There’s an f-bomb and regu-

lar scattered language, including racial epithets, with copious smoking and drinking. Factor in some violence and this is a stout PG-13. Summing up The Butler hits the historical high notes and that makes it important for those unfamiliar with the turbulence of those times. It’s greatest benefit is the illustration that Civil Rights and Vietnam had quite an impact on black middle class families, too. Next up You’re Next, even though it’s two years old.

races into retirement BY MARK K. CAMPBELL On his final day as a public school teacher May 31, Azle coach/teacher Don Ostermann sent out an email to friends, family, and cohorts. From his young days beginning school until the end of May 2012, he said he had seen 55 first days of school. And he “was a little apprehensive on every one of them.” He added that he’d seen 55 last days of school and “was glad to see every one of them.” He won’t have to worry about those unique days anymore. Ostermann, a track coach respected throughout the area, retired after 39 years of coaching, 33 of them in Azle.

After that last race, a Baylor assistant coach came up to him and said the Bear head coach wanted to talk to him. “I was all ready to go to North Texas,” Ostermann said. “I made a visit to Baylor when they had the Southwest Conference Track and Field Championships there.” Coach O. went to Baylor on an athletic scholarship and competed all four years in Waco. To this day, he remains friends with Robinson, the track coach at Mesquite Poteet, an oval where Ostermann took his Hornets annually for years to compete outside the usual nearby meets.

He learned early on that speed was not an Azle asset. So Ostermann focused his squads on hurdling, distance, and field events. That tactic brought many district titles to the AHS trophy case through the decades. “Having speed was a plus. We stressed hurdles and mid-distance which allowed us to have some good mile relay teams,” he said. “We could always be competitive.” From his childhood through his coaching career, Ostermann figured he has been to around 500 track meets – 49 seasons worth. He’s won his own share of kudos and directed hundreds of Azle athletes to successes of their own, including a couple of AHS track squads that won back-to-back titles and sent as many as 11 to regional meets to compete. Not to mention, as he noted in that previous email, he has seen 1,000 football games and “no telling how many miles I’ve ridden on a Yellow Dog [school bus].” Retired...kinda There’s no way to keep Coach O. away from an oval. Instead of directing the Hornet Relays, he’ll now volunteer. And he’ll do the same in other sports – like running the clock for football games. “I plan to volunteer coach and help out wherever they need me,” he said. Retiring wasn’t a hard decision, he said. “Once any teacher reaches the point to retire with full benefits – 30 years – you start to think about it. I pushed it to 38.” Certainly, he’ll still be around: “We plan to stay in Azle; it’s home to our kids.” Coach O. added, “It has been a great experience. I’ve enjoyed every day – some more than others – but still I can say I have done what I wanted to do.” That includes helping hundreds of Azle youth excel.
