By ChrIS AGEE The Springtown Chamber of Commerce dedicated much of its August luncheon to recognizing the school district’s newest instructors. Springtown ISD Superintendent Mike Kelley introduced the principals from each campus, who then announced new staff members from their schools. “I’m excited about this crew,” Kelley said, acknowledging educators can choose to work in any number of districts.

“These teachers aren’t here because they are looking for a job,” he explained. “They are looking for a job here.” New teachers, consisting of both first-time instructors and those relocated from other districts, are replacing many great exiting teachers, Kelley noted. He expressed confidence the new additions will succeed in maintaining an excellent school district for local students.

By ChrIS AGEE Several residents along East 6th Street say they received a vague letter regarding an upcoming yard cleanup at their housing unit. They said the letter appeared to indicate if they did not remove everything from their yards within a few days, manage-

ment would possibly dispose of their belongings. The letter, dated Aug. 15, was from Spring Garden Apartments Executive Director Mike Swan and informed tenants yard maintenance would begin Aug. 19. According to a copy of the letter obPLEASE SEE MISLEADING, PAGE 2A.


Reno council addresses tax flak Mayor admits previous council improperly filed documents By ChrIS AGEE Reno resident Art Johnson attended a recent Reno city council meeting with the intention of speaking during the public comment portion. While state law prohibits council members from responding directly to items not included on the agenda, Mayor Lynda Stokes preemptively addressed his concerns during her opening report. Johnson claimed that, upon attempting to take ad-

vantage of a tax rate freeze for seniors passed by a previous council, he was informed the ordinance was not properly put into effect. Stokes conceded her predecessors did not file certain documents correctly, rendering the freeze unenforceable. She noted the council is currently considering the repercussions of enacting a freeze and explained why she is opposed to passing such an ordinance PLEASE SEE rENO, PAGE 3A.

tained by the Epigraph, Swan did not address the issue of what would be done with items not removed from yards. “If there is anything in your flower bed and/or yard that you would like to keep, please bring them inside your house or put them in the stor-

age building,” he wrote. According to at least three residents, local management could not further elaborate and Swan could not be reached until the morning the cleanup was to begin. “They weren’t available to us for any comments on what we were supposed to do,” one resident said. The tenants, each of whom re-

quested not to be identified by name, said Swan explained Aug. 19 that his letter referred only to broken debris. Since the letter was not specific, they added, many residents took preemptive action to protect their belongings. “The notice was very short and sharp,” a resident stated.

Because of the uncertainty, another tenant explained, “people were out in their yards Saturday and Sunday.” The complex, she said, is occupied by seniors and disabled people who cannot easily move heavy items from their yards. “Some of them were crying,” she said, explaining many had family and friends come over to spend their

weekends moving. Another resident recorded a video of one neighbor’s decorated yard and its subsequent transformation. “Now that yard is bare,” she said. Swan said he had not received any complaints, though a number of residents contend he did. He further indicated the cleanup project was completed Aug. 20.

New SISD teachers welcomed at Chamber luncheon

Teachers (above) set to join the Springtown ISD this year gathered for a group photo following a Chamber of Commerce luncheon organized to welcome them in their new positions. SISD Superintendent Mike Kelley (right) introduces Goshen Creek Elementary School principal Wesley Thomas. Principals from all other campuses followed, recognizing new additions to each school’s staff. Photos by Chris Agee n NEW FROM PAGE ONE.

“There’s a lot of talent in this room,” Kelley said. Springtown High School welcomes the largest number of new teachers with nine added to its staff. The middle school is close behind, adding an above-average seven new teachers this year. Reno and Springtown Elementary each have four new instructors while three are joining the Springtown Intermediate campus and Special Education department. Goshen Creek Elementary is adding two to its teaching staff. Parker County 4-H Agent Kayla Neill provided some information about the program to new teachers, explaining an emphasis on youth development helps reinforce students as they approach adulthood. “Our youth are the next leaders and I see it,” she said. “I know you do, too.” The program reaches 386 students in the county and Neill illustrated the potential unleashed by two specific participants. One became an entrepreneur at the age of 16 by developing a photography busi-

ness and another went on to become an aide to U.S. Rep. Kay Granger. Neill shared a few of the many free youth development programs offered by the local 4-H, which include bullying prevention, emergency preparedness, and an “egg-tochick” program that provides teachers with 24 eggs and an incubator. “It’s 21 days of embryology you can talk to your kids about,” she said. She said staff is always ready to assist instructors and urged new teachers to consider the benefits 4-H offers. “Before you start your year,” she said, “go in with an open mind.” Springtown Education Foundation Chairman and former SISD Board President Tootie Hall presented $200 checks to each of the new teachers on behalf of the foundation. Teachers are often required to purchase supplies for their classrooms with their own money, she explained, and said the checks could be used for whatever purpose their recipients deemed appropriate. “We appreciate you coming to our district,” she said.

via a council vote, favoring making the issue a ballot initiative. “In freezing taxes on one segment, it shifts the tax burden to the other segment, the younger folks,” she said. “The city must use caution in considering a freeze on certain taxpayers’ taxes as it may box the city into a financial corner in coming years.” Another reason Stokes wants to leave the decision to voters amounts to “a conflict of interest,” she explained. “Council also finds itself in the unique position,” she explained, “insomuch as a freeze could go into effect, almost every member of this council would benefit directly from a freeze.” Stokes said she feels a vote would be the most ethical way to handle the debate, explaining she initially ran for mayor because “we were constantly being lied to and we were constantly being misled.” Speaking to Johnson and others in favor of the initiative, she said the council is “giving you a way to put this on the ballot and put it to a vote,”

adding supporters “obviously have people who are willing to work for it.” Johnson, who prepared a packet of information for council and attendees prior to the meeting, requested city leaders approve not only a tax freeze for those over 65 but a homestead exemption of the first 20 percent of property value for seniors and disabled persons. Stokes explained the two issues would require separate petitions, each with its own number of required signatures. During his allotted three minute address near the end of the meeting, he said honoring the previously passed freeze is the fair thing to do. “A prior council here passed – because I was at that meeting – a freeze on taxes for seniors in the city of Reno,” he said. “I don’t know why it wasn’t filed correctly.” He said the reduction in tax revenue would be minimal on the city level, though those breaks could be very helpful to seniors. “You expect these seniors out here on fixed 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 Reno resident Art Johnson addressed the city council during a recent meeting all,” he said. “What to share his displeasure with how the city has handled certain tax concerns.

Local author discusses labels, hometown pride By Chris Agee Successful author, business coach, and speaker Carrie Wilkerson travels extensively to share her message. Her home base remains in Springtown, though, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The Springtown High School graduate said she moved extensively as a child in a military family. As an adult, she said she made the wise decision to remain in this community even as her career flourished. “I choose to be in this town,” she said at a recent Chamber of Commerce luncheon. “I choose to be in this ZIP code.” A certified teacher, Wilkerson’s comments coincided with an event welcoming new instructors to the district. “I’ve seen kids at both ends of the spectrum,” she said. “You are among the best of the best.” Transitioning into the focus of her presentation, she urged attendees to ditch the labels others have ascribed to them. From a young age, she explained, individuals pigeonhole others, labeling them as merely a member

meaningless in light of the unique contributions each individual can make. Wilkerson, an award-winning author who has addressed crowds of thousands, said she has never been confined by how she was labeled – or not labeled – by others. “They never ask me if I was most likely to succeed,” she said. The same disregard of labels can be applied to Springtown, she explained, and offered a number of steps to reclaiming the pride residents should feel for their hometown. It is true, she conceded, that Springtown does not have many of the amenities and features found in larger towns. “What we do have are amazing businesses,” she said. Owners take a special, personal interest in their customers, she explained, introducing her first of five points. “Shop local,” she said, noting “it

may cost you a little more” but local transactions have far-reaching positive effects. Next, she urged residents to “attend local” by supporting Chamber events, sporting events, and musical programs. “We have a top 10 marching band in the state,” she explained. Wilkerson also encouraged attendees to “cheer local” and “worship local” by proudly extolling the attributes of Springtown and gathering with fellow residents within the community’s churches. Finally, she said Springtown residents should “defend local” by rebuking unfounded criticism. “Maybe you need to stand up for us until you believe it yourself,” she said. She concluded each resident should only have one label for Springtown: “mine.”

Virginia fugitive nabbed 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 WeatherfordParker 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. Authorities believe he molested a number of children and recorded the assaults. Upon learning he might be in the area, Parker 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.

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 multiyear 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 detailed 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 criss-crossing 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. The cruise ended Feb. 11 and Keyes left New Orleans for Texas. The FBI believes he committed another homicide in Texas before arriving in Ale-

do 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-CALL-FBI.

Hit-and-run driver kills Pelican Bay interim police pedestrian on Hwy. 199 chief implements changes Azle 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.

BY CHRIS AGEE With city council approval of Jason Farris to serve as interim police chief in Pelican Bay, the department is implementing new policies and procedures designed to remedy previous issues. Farris, a five-year veteran of the department, began his tenure by promising to hold officers to the highest of standards and revoking a prior policy allowing officers to perform commissioned work for other agencies.

In a press release, the department conceded it “has gotten some negative attention lately,” explaining Farris is dedicated to addressing citizen concerns. 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.

Lady Porcupines sweep home opener over Paschal

by mark k campbell A trip to Grandview for a tournament and the first home match kept the Lady Porcupine volleyball team busy. At Grandview, Springtown (5-3) opened with Glen Rose and quickly rolled over the Lady Tigers, 25-17, 25-15. Katelynn Mainord’s 4.5 blocks led as SHS stopped 12 Glen Rose efforts. Ashley Mainord added 2.5 blocks. Next came a slugfest with Leon. The Lady Porcupines won the opener 25-21 then fell in a killer second game, 26-28. In the deciding third game, SHS lost 23-25. Springtown would get another crack at Leon. K. Mainord ruled the nets gain, blocking 7.5 of SHS’ 15. A. Mainord led with eight kills and 11 digs. Next, SHS easily dashed Dallas Life, 25-12, 25-8. Springtown won a battle royale with Brock, 25-20, 24-26, 27-25 with A. Mainord killing 13 balls with 15 digs; Shelbi Meek posted 18 assists and Brooklyn Dauenhauer carded 16. A 30-28, 25-21 win over Groesbeck with A. Mainord killing 17 balls, propelled SHS to the title game. Leon won it, 21-25, 23-25, but coach Leighann Strickland lauded her second place team. “We really came together as one. We had a great weekend.” She praised the leadership of Meek and A. Mainord. Back home on Aug. 20 in the SHS gym opener, the Lady Porcupines steamrolled Fort Worth Paschal, 25-22, 25-21, 25-17. “We were able to keep Paschal on their toes with a faster Brooklyn Dauenhauer serves.

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.

They also went horseback to the preacher’s house to marry and Martha rode Old Charley. She was about fourteen years old. Will put up a tent beside Andy’s house and lived in it while he built him a house. Then Mama, Osey and I lived with them part of the time. “Right after Will and Martha married a bunch of boys came to charivari them. Andy heard them coming and was so mad about it he yelled out to them that he was going to shoot them. Louisa caught hold of him and held him to keep him from getting his gun, but when the boys heard him say he was going to shoot they took off over the hills on their horses with their

buckets and tin pans as fast as they could go. Louisa and Andy had only one room and no floor in their house. “Before Mollie was married and we were living with Louisa, Mollie had a tiny white dog. One day when we were eating the little dog began yelping and carrying on under the table. When we looked to see what was the matter with the dog there was a snake under the table and it had bitten the dog. Mama put kerosene on it and doctored it the best she could and it got all right. “One day Louisa was setting the table to eat and someone spied a big yellow spotted snake crawling along the log just above the table. I do not remember what they did about it. “When Will built his house he built two rooms, but they were separate excepting the roof. One room had a floor, but the other had no floor nor door.

The plum hunters didn’t come until the next afternoon and they had tubs of plums. “The sage brush was as tall as I and when a fire got started it went by leaps and bounds across that sagebrush. One day a fire got started and Mollie’s little calf was out in the sagebrush. The mother of the calf, seeing the blaze, seemed to know her calf was in danger. She ran toward the blaze, her head lowered and lowing. Grandpa Arnold ran out to the calf, picked it up, and ran around the blaze and saved its life. “One day a neighbor, a Mrs. Hill, asked Mama to come over and help her quilt. So one day Mama, Hassey and I started over there. Mama saw

something down ahead of us out to one side of the road. It would stick its head up above the sagebrush, then get down out of sight, and each time it stuck its head up it would be closer to us. Finally Mama told us what she saw and said we had better go back home for it might be something that would harm us. So we went back and I ran just as fast as I could, I was so frightened. We never found out what it was. “A short distance from where we lived there was thick timber. One day I was in a little draw near our house and I saw a deer across the draw from me. When I went in the house and told the family about the deer they went to look for it, but it was gone. It had darted back into the timber.” Laurie Moseley is an author, archeologist and historian who lives in Springtown. He is the director of Springtown’s Legends Museum.

County judge reviews packed bad smell meeting


as well as Wise County Judge Bill McElhaney and three Wise County Commissioners. Residents who spoke made valid points about the negative impact caused by the improper dumping of human sludge by Renda Environmental. Renda has a contract with the City of Fort Worth to haul the material from the municipal waste system. With proper application, we are told the application is safe and beneficial to the landowner. If that is true, then the application in this case was not done properly. A TCEQ staff member admitted at the hearing the application was not handled properly. As I have continued to research this issue, I have learned

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

HB2996 was introduced in the p a s t Regular Legislative Session that would h a v e m a d e GUEST COLUMN dramatic changes in the Mark Riley process, potentially with the chance for imposing greater harm or more negative impacts. While the legislation added some reporting requirements 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 airline merger opposition


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

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,

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.

Movie Man

Thursday, August 22, 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

The Butler


Civil Rights battles Starring: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo Directed by: Lee Daniels Rated PG-13: language, racial epithets, violence email:

... on a scale of 1-10

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. Whitaker, an Oscar winner back in 2006 with The Last

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.

Coach .

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.
