1st tax abatement granted in Azle BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN A new tax abatement policy within the city of Azle has already proved its value. The policy was adopted by the Azle city council on March 19. During the Azle city council meeting held Tuesday, Nov. 5, a public hearing was conducted to receive public input before the council approved an ordinance establishing Reinvestment Zone No. 1 in the city for the purpose of property tax abatement. Both the adoption of the tax abatement policy as well as creation of the reinvestment zone were necessary in order for the city to adopt a property tax abatement with any company going forward. Integrated Machinery Solutions (IMS), LLC and RS3 Holdings, LLC (related companies) submitted an application for property tax abatement on July 15. The council adopted a property tax abatement between the city, IMS and RS3 Holdings during the same meeting. The abatement grants a 50 percent reduction in property tax due the city of Azle from the two companies for five years beginning Jan. 1, 2014. In return for the tax break, IMS/RS3 has agreed to provide approximately This injured deer just $2 million in building(s) and improvements to the 55-acre tract it recently purwanted to get away after chased between Ashwood and Richardson Streets, with frontage on SH 199. jumping through a plate The location is just east of Allsup’s convenience store on SH 199 at the westglass window and being ern edge of Azle. trapped in a church for IMS/RS3 also promises to employ a minimum of 50 people during the course several minutes. of the abatement period, although company founders Rick Reeves and Stephen Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman Bond anticipate that number will double before the five-year abatement expires.

AHS quartet earns Rotary Student of the Month honors BY MARK K. CAMPBELL Four Azle High School seniors were named Rotary Students of the Month at the club’s Nov. 7 meeting. Recognized for their exceptional efforts were Randy Cross, Taylor Anderson, Candice Ortiz, and Wesley Wise. Cross scored a rare 5 on his AP Chemistry test and hopes to pursue that scholastic route in his collegiate career. Naming math and science his favorite subjects, Cross said he plans on attending the University of Texas at Austin for a chemical engineering degree. At AHS, Cross loads up in Advanced Placement courses and has won a slew of awards in several AP classes. When not studying or volunteering, Cross works with his father restoring old vehicles at their home. Anderson said she will seek a sportscasting degree at the one university she has eyed since her youth, UT-Austin. She participated in several sports at AHS in her underclassmen years, including softball, volleyball, and basketball. A member of the AHS Rotary-affiliated In-

teract Club, Anderson still plays softball – she was Academic All-District last season – while working on the high school yearbook and getting wild as a member of the Rowdies, a cheering squad. Ortiz wants to major in consumer psychology at Texas Tech after graduating from AHS. She is the current student body president and has been involved in school politics since her freshman year. Ortiz is the manager of the Dazzler dance team and is a member of PAL, Peer Assistance and Leadership. She also has participated in choir and drama. Away from AHS, Ortiz skeet shoots, snowboards, kayaks, and figure skates. Wise also scored a 5 on his AP Chemistry test; he is ranked No. 3 in GPA at AHS. He credits being focused and persistent for his high school successes. Wise plans on attending UT-Austin and majoring in chemical engineering; however, Texas A&M remains an option, too. Wise is a band member and part of the Marching Green Pride class that just placed higher at the state competition than any other in AHS history.

Avoid using your garbage disposal.  Wipe off excess oil/grease (cooled first) from dishes, pans, fryers and griddles. Then prewash dishes/pans in cold water before putting in dishwasher.  Cover kitchen sink with catch basket and empty in garbage can as needed  Cover floor drain with fine screen and empty in garbage can as needed. DON’T!  Don’t pour oil and grease down the drain  Don’t put food scraps down the drain  Don’t rinse off oil and grease with hot water. The Environmental Collection Center (ECC), located at 6400 Bridge Street in east Fort Worth, accepts turkey fryer oil and other cooking oils. The food oils are recycled to create bio-diesel fuel.

‘Azle Reads’ kicks off at Azle Memorial Library Reading is its own reward, but sometimes there are other perks, too. The Azle Memorial Library has announced its first-ever Winter Reading program, called “Azle Reads!” Children, teens and adults who participate will have a chance to win one of several gift baskets, just for reading. Pick up a Winter Reading Log at the library’s information desk. There are four different logs, based on age: preschool (ages 0-5); children (ages 6-8); children (ages 9-12); and teens and adults (ages 13 and up). Each log lists 10 genres. Read four books of your choice from four of the genres listed and submit your completed log. Each submitted log entitles you to a raffle ticket for one of several gift baskets. Every participant may submit up to three logs

and is eligible to attend the winter Reading Celebration on Jan. 2, 2014. All logs are due on or before Monday, Dec. 30, at 6 p.m. Late entries will not be accepted. Gift baskets for children include a Classic Toy Mix suitable for children age 0-7; a Craft Kit Extreme suitable for children 5-12; and Games! Games! Games! (suitable for children 8-12). Gift baskets for teens and adults include a Duck Dynasty Fanatic basket; Love to Cook featuring gourmet cooking supplies; Movie Madness with movie passes and snacks; Shopping Spree, a gift card assortment; and That’s A Wrap! gift wrap assortment. “Azle Reads” is sponsored by the city of Azle, Friends of the Azle Library, and the Azle Library Trust. If you have questions or need more information, a library staff member can assist you at any time.

Corley comes home to National Bank of Texas Break-in at church blamed on scared deer

The newest employee of The National Bank of Texas hails from Azle. Jessica Corley, who has 19 years of banking experience, graduated from Azle High School in 1996. She headed to Fort Worth and continued her banking career – “I’ve always worked in banking” – but has now returned to Azle. That’s because in July she married fellow Azleite Justin Corley. “We decided to live in Azle,” she said. While in Fort Worth, Corley said she served as the president of a Rotary Club. So, when she returned to Azle, she joined its branch. “We had worked on projects together,” she recalled. Corley’s also a member of the Azle Optimist Club and has attended a Chamber of Commerce meeting already, too. “I’m plugging into the community,” she said. Corley said she was glad to return to Azle, that everyone here was “very welcoming. It’s nice to be here – it’s the friendliest community.”

“I had just passed the Lutheran Church when two 4-point bucks came running up out of that creek bottom,” Hukill said. “But they were facing that wall, so they looked around and saw me, and then took off down the service road.” Then the pair jumped up onto the main highway lanes. One continued across the highway, but the second deer must have gotten scared by the cars, Hukill said. “He made a U-turn and almost took me out,” Hukill said. “I hit my brakes hard to keep from running into him, and the next thing I knew, he just smashed through that window.” That window was located at the Crossing Fellowship Church at 1177 Southeast Parkway in the Parkway Center. Pastor Corey Wynns says it’s the second time a deer has jumped through a window into the church he pastors. Hukill said a couple of ladies from a nearby

business called 911, and he called Wynns. Azle Officer Richard Martinez arrived and he, Hukill and another man tried to herd, the frightened and injured deer outside. Using tables and chairs as shields to protect themselves from being stomped should the deer come their way, the trio opened a side door and a back door and after several minutes was able to shoo the critter outside. Freed from the building, the deer – sporting obvious injuries to its mouth and face from its close encounter with plate glass – ran back and forth along a wooden fence that runs along the back of the property. It scurried under the electric gate of an exclusive subdivision, where it got hung up for several minutes before struggling free and disappearing into the marshland. It’s a reminder to us all to beware as we’re driving – or cycling – because the cooler weather brings the deer out. And if you’ve lived in Azle long, you know... they’re everywhere.

The weather has been so nice and the park has been full of young folks and families playing at the new disc golf course the city put in Ask Creek Park recently. I’ve spoken with some of them and they say it’s the best one around. The model airplane folks have been frequenting our park also. They have some pretty good-sized planes they’re flying. It’s nice to watch. Sometimes we’ll take a coffee break and sit out on the deck and watch awhile. Azle has some pretty parks around here and the one behind the library is especially nice and used by a lot of folks, young and old. Our birthday and anniversary party was this week and Friday is Produce Day. Our AARP Senior Driving class will be Thursday, Nov. 21 and then there will not be another one until the third Thursday in January – Jan. 16, 2014. Wow! Where has the year gone? It sure is going by quickly!

If you’ve not been in to check us out, drop by sometime. You’ll be glad you did. You may even recognize a face or two. We meet Monday through Friday in the B.J. Clark Community Center and Annex. Some days we are in the Emanuel Building also for classes, etc. Our meals are reserved the day before and served at noon Monday through Friday. Our meals are nutritionally balanced and pretty good. Stop by and pick up a monthly calendar of activities and the menu for the month is on the back side. You have a choice of drink with your meal – orange juice, skim milk, buttermilk or 2 percent milk. You’ll tell Betty at the desk which one you prefer. There’s a drink machine in the B.J. Clark building and water fountain and we have decaf coffee daily. Our annual Thanksgiving dinner will be Friday, Nov. 22. But the deadline to order is Nov. 14. We have about 72 signed up so far. We have table games daily of various kinds. Yoga classes on Mondays and

Wednesday in the Emanuel building. Chair and Yoga classes in the Emanuel building on Tuesday and Thursday. We have a monthly birthday party on the second Wednesday of each month for any of our seniors who have either or both. We have cake and ice cream after lunch. Hope and Johnny will be here to play music for us on that day. They are very good and we really enjoy having them. Some of our folks staff after lunch on Thursdays to play chicken foot dominoes. It’s a colored dot domino game that’s lots of fun and easy to learn. We have a group of seniors who play bridge here on Friday mornings and they need more players. We have Food Bank Day and Produce Day twice a month for those who qualify. You must eat four meals here at the Senior Center to qualify for each program. Mainly, we gather each day for food, fun and fellowship. So come on down and meet the Lunch Bunch – they’re GREAT! You’ll be glad you did.

Quake, rattle, and roll: Fun with earthquakes


ot to get all Seinfeldian or anything, but what’s the deal with all the earthquakes? Really, is this the place you figured would be shaken to bits then fall into the molten core of the earth, Azle? It’s supposed to be California, right? I saw Superman (the last good one, back in 1978). Lois Lane’s car falls into an earthquake-caused split in the earth and she suffocates but then Supes flies so fast that he turns the planet’s time back and he saves Margot Kidder. What if Azle falls victim to getting swallowed up? No one around here can fly that fast. Plus, such an earthquake would be very inconvenient. Didn’t the school bond just pass? Property values would plummet – and property would, literally. No, there’s nothing good about an

earthquake, even if your workplace disappearing into a gaping abyss gets you the rest of the day off. Three theories are being floated about why it’s earthquake-city around here. 1. Fracking. Almost everyone hates fracking. It has something to do with the ground being drilled into, then a bunch of precious water being pumped deep underground, then monstrous clouds of gas being ejected to the surface and captured in Mason jars; then your neighbor getting giant checks for doing absolutely nothing while you slave at work for barely minimum wage! It’s the ultimate “I drink your milkshake!” Ask anyone not getting a check and they’ll tell you fracking is responsible for everything bad right now – Windows 8.0, the Cowboys defense, Obamacare.

2. The apocalypse. The Bible (somewhere near the back) is loaded with references about the earth going crazy. There were plenty of mentions of earthON YOUR quakes in the early books, MARK too. Mark K. Campbell If you had a Starbucks in Sodom or Gomorrah, well, too bad. It got quaked. Moses knew things were serious on Mount Sinai when he went up to fetch the Ten Commandments and the mountain shook. And what about the Walls of Jericho? That was either an earthquake or some very

primitive fracking which could be some very impressive foreshadowing when you think about it. Anyway, some humongous earthquakes are coming according to the Revelation. It’s just not going to be End Times without some real-life Sensurround. (If you get that, bless you.) If you hear a trumpet blast coincide with a quake that shakes that picture off the wall of Granny twerking last Halloween, then, well, get ready. 3. Geological faults. Many people dismiss the fact that our beloved town sits near or around a fault. (Faults being underground make them pretty hard to see. Plus they’ll move around on you.) So all this earthquake activity is a natural occurrence. Think of the part of the earth under all the top dirt as some kind of game. Like Slap Jack. Really big Slap Jack. Every once in a while, a giant hand sees a Jack (i.e.,

fault) and slaps it! Slap Jack earthquake! No, wait, here’s a better example. Jenga! You pull out the wrong piece of wood and everything comes crashing down! Hold on, the whole earth doesn’t tumble down in an earthquake. Give me a minute… Forget it. The main thing is: We’re having lots of earthquakes. Oh, they laughed at me when I took a geology course on quakes’ cousin volcanoes in college. Sure, it was an elective and was the only class that fit my limited time frame, but it’s paying off now! Thanks to my education at that famed geological university, UTA, I can tell you that, without question, the reason for all the earthquakes is God using the gas industry to fulfill prophesy. You’re welcome. And hang on. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and the earth rumbled just down the highway from him.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Austinite lauds Azle’s MGP Editor’s note: This letter dated Nov. 3 was sent to Leander Vandegrift High School’s band director Jeremy Spicer who sent it on to Azle’s band director, Shawn Murphy following the Bands of America competiton. It’s being reprinted with the permission of the author. Dear Mr. Spicer: I wanted to mention and maybe you can see if the proper credit will be given? Myself and two other band parents

sat in the midst of a group of students from Azle High School. When we arrived at 8 p.m., there were hardly any three seats left together. We asked if we could sit, and they said they were free. The next three hours truly amazed me. These students, their chaperones, and director all deserve credit. They not only watched each band perform, they clapped, cheered and stood up at the end of each performance! They were courteous, kind, and truly interested in each and every band. When Vandegrift came on, they cheered and clapped, then a few of

them each gave encouragement and kind words to us the parents. At the exhibition performance of Aledo, they and their director all gave a loud shout of encouragement! This is a band that is their “rival” in category as they explained to me, but they were happily cheering them on and were proud of them! Azle students truly deserve to be recognized as a wonderful example of excellent sportsmanship and respect at such an event. They should be proud of their students! Kim Cohn Austin

Beautiful, educated lady became prospector in Saskatchewan


he only book I purchased at the Western History Association conference in Tucson in October was, Kate Rice Prospector by Helen Duncan. I usually buy more, but I was packing light for my Southwest Airlines flight. Kathleen Rice was born in St. Mary's, Ontario, Canada in 1882. Closer to her father than her mother, she grew up loving the outdoors. A real beauty, she became well-educated at the encouragement of her father. She loved college and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1906 with a major in math. Just as she was about to graduate from college her fiancee died suddenly. Although the author of the book presented Kathleen (Kate) as perhaps being pushed into the marriage, one wonders how different her life would have been had she married when she completed college. Kate taught math for a year in St. Catherines, Ontario, staying in small


town boarding houses. Her adventurous spirit revealed itself, however, when she applied for a high school teaching job in what was still the far Western frontier of Yorkton, Saskatchewan. The school officials had wanted a male teacher, but they did accept her. One of Kate's college friends, a girl identified only as Margaret, applied as well and taught English. After both young women had been in Western Canada for two years, Kate told Margaret that she planned to take a train to a town 100 miles to the north on the Saskatchewan River called The Pas where a railroad line had just been completed. The name The Pas in French meant a narrow passage on a river or lake. The pass had been used by Indians long before the white man came. Margaret went, too. The year: 1909. They carried tools of a prospector with them, for The Pas was the jumping off place for prospectors and trappers. Saskatchewan was Canada's wild West. Kate was happy there, but

Margaret was not. Kate got a teaching job, but Margaret had to work in a drugstore. In June 1911, Kate quit teaching and went north to Beaver Lake after hearing gold rumors. Margaret folPAGES FROM lowed, afraid be left alone. WESTERN to At some point HISTORY Margaret could no more J’Nell L. Pate take and returned to the East. Although Kate's parents wrote, begging her to return home, she refused. Having a mining partner in the rough country of northern Saskatchewan was important. Kate acted brave and independent after Margaret left, but she knew loneliness. A fellow Publisher/Advertising director Kim Ware

miner, a year older than Kate, but five inches shorter than her six feet, needed a partner. A former British soldier, Dick Woosey came to Canada from England with a wife and son to prospect, but his wife refused to rough it and went back to England. Born in Liverpool in 1881, Woosey had been a noncommissioned cavalry officer in India with the 18th Hussars, called “Queen Mary's Own.” The unlikely two formed a business partnership. They signed an agreement to share any discoveries. They built a cabin on an island on Herb Lake that they named Woosey Island. They named a second, Rice Island. They purchased supplies in The Pas, but they picked wild rice and fruit, and planted a garden in summer. Game was plentiful as well. Kate was independent and felt a sense of freedom in the wild. She kept notebooks and described the beautiful Auroras (northern lights) that she saw. Upon occasion Woosey had to resEditor Mark K. Campbell

cue Kate; he always seemed to know where to find her when she got in trouble with a natural foe. Kate found rich nickel deposits, and Woosey struck gold. Unfortunately unscrupulous mining operators cheated him out of his rich mine, and the frustration accelerated his bad heart. Woosey died in a barber's chair in The Pas in 1940 at age 59. Devastated, Kate buried the $45,000 she had received for her nickel and left the north, claiming to be insane. Not much else is known of her for the next 23 years until her death in a nursing home at age 81 in 1963. Book author Hudson believed that theirs really was no more than a business partnership, but admits that no one really knew. Their partnership lasted from 1914 until Woosey's death in 1940. Both died penniless. Retired history professor J’Nell Pate of Azle has authored several books, many of which are on sale in the lobby of the Azle News.

Every proposed constitutional amendment passes


ll nine proposed amendments to the state constitution on the Nov. 5 election

ballot passed. Texas Secretary of State John Steen, the state’s chief elections officer, on Nov. 6 commented that the 2013 constitutional amendment election “was our first statewide election with a photo ID requirement in place, and it was smooth, secure and successful.” The photo identification requirement took effect following a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June on a Voting Rights Act case that challenged the state law over its potential negative effects on voter turnout, particularly among Texas’ black and Latino voters, older Texans, rural Texans and Texans of lower income. On Election Day, Steen said unofficial vote totals for Proposition 1 indicate that 1,144,844 voters cast a ballot, a 66 percent

Watch for tree failing warning signs this season

With wintertime bearing down on us, the Tree Care Industry Association has issued a list of warning signs to watch out for since ice, wind, and cold can bring down trees and limbs. The group warns that just because a tree has survived 10 significant winters doesn’t mean it’ll make it through an eleventh.

Prop. 9, relating to expanding the types of sanctions that may be assessed against a judge or justice following a formal proceeding instituted by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.

Watch for these warning signs that your trees might be in danger: • wires touching branches – trees can become energized • dead limbs hung in higher branches – they can fall and cause injury • cracked stems and forks – a catastrophic failure of an entire section could be imminent



system Some trees are more susceptible to breaking and causing damage when their brittle wood is broken: Chinese elm, silver maple, boxelder, and various poplars. Growing trees are more likely to “catch” wind and become more prone to mechanical stress that can cause failure.

AG sues over hiring rules Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott on Nov. 4 announced he had filed a lawsuit challenging guidelines issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that “limit the ability of employers – including the State of Texas and its agencies – from categorically excluding convicted felons from employment,” he said. Abbott said the hiring guidelines the EEOC adopted in 2012 “prohibit Texas and its agencies from categorically Unit issues identification A Texas Department of Pubexcluding convicted felons for


certain jobs.” In the lawsuit, Abbott alleges the guidelines are unlawful because they overstep the federal agency’s statutory authority “and improperly bully the State and its agencies into jeopardizing the safety of Texans.” Abbott seeks a declaratory judgment that the state and its agencies “are entitled to maintain and enforce state laws and policies that absolutely bar convicted felons — or a certain category of convicted felons — from government employment; a declaration that the EEOC cannot enforce its guidelines against the State of Texas — and an injunction that bars the EEOC from issuing right-to-sue letters to persons seeking to pursue this type of discrimination charge against the State of Texas or any of its agencies; and a judgment holding unlawful and setting aside the EEOC’s hiring guidelines.” HOGYE HOGLE

Hornets fall to Falcons in season finale

BY MARK K. CAMPBELL While the 2013 football season ended with a thud following a 56-20 loss at Lake Dallas Nov. 8, AHS coach Devon Dorris saw the future for the 2014 Hornets. “We are going to get mentally tougher and get the energy to overcome what stops the flows of momentum,” he said. Against the Falcons, Azle (37, 1-6) trailed 14-0 early. But a 9-yard dash by E.J. Salinas pulled the Hornets to 14-7 as the first quarter wound down. Then came the play that had been worked on all year – a tricky onsides kick where Dylan Tritton literally swats the ball behind his body. It worked to perfection and Azle recovered the pigskin and had the momentum. “But we didn’t do anything with it.” Dorris lamented. The Hornets played without starting quarterback Jamie King who underwent knee surgery the Wednesday before the The Hornet defense puts the hurt on a Lake Dallas ball carrier. Early in the first quarter, Azle was in position to tie Lake Dallas game. Dorris said the junior played a game that eventually was won by the Falcons 56-20. Photo courtesy Bill O’Connor

most of the season injured – he also had a hand ailment – and Dorris took him out to get him well for next season. But before the 2014 slate begins and before the realignment next February – where AHS could end up who knows where again – returning Hornets will be put through substantial offseason paces. Dorris promised: “It’s going to be a daily grind. I’m going to challenge them physically and mentally every single day. To win, we’ve got to be tougher, execute better, and give an outstanding effort.” Against the Falcons, Dalton Cole took the QB reins late and ran for one TD then threw to Jesse Salisbury for another. Next year’s Hornet team could be special, especially with 28 lettermen returning, 17 of them starters. “I said we were young this year and it would be a learning process, and that’s what it was,” Dorris said. He added, “Next year I expect us to be much better.”

Basketball ladies start season at 1-1

ACS drubs rival

The opening game of the 2013-14 Lady Hornet basketball season didn’t go as planned, but Azle (1-1) bounced back big time in game two. AHS fell 74-49 at Richland to start the year. But the Lady Hornets’ opened play at home with a 40-36 victory over perennial power Granbury. At Richland, Azle started the season with a pair of 13-point quarters. Valarie Matlock – fresh off running at the Region I cross country meet in Lubbock – led AHS with 11 points. Payton Berger added 10 and Morgan Prentice scored nine for Azle. At home Nov. 8, the Lady Pirates and Lady Hornets were even at the halfway point, tied at 17. But AHS rode a 15-7 third quarter advantage for the victory.

This time, Prentice led the way with 11 points. Maci Wilbanks got seven, Matlock six, and Taylor Fulfer and Makenzi Bossert five points apiece. After playing at Sanger Nov. 12 (results not available at press time), the first tournament of the year arrives. The Lady Hornets will venture to Saginaw for the Rough Rider Invitational Nov. 14-16. The round robin affair has Azle opening the tourney with a game against the hosts a 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. Later that afternoon, Azle sees Paradise, at 6:30. AHS has one game on Friday, against 5-4A rival Brewer at 3:30 p.m. Two games follow on Saturday: versus Little Elm at 9:30 a.m. and Keller Timber Creek at 12:30 p.m. The frosh and junior varsity Azle Christian School’s Josh Crawford carried nine times for 118 yards and a touchplay at a Bridgeport tourney. down in the Crusaders’ 68-20 playoff victory.

In the first round of the playoffs, Azle Christian School (91-1) made quick work of Nazarene Christian, winning 68-20. The Crusader defense permitted just 130 total yards. Meanwhile, Josh Matthews was scoring five TDs – three on 10 rushes for 115 yards and two more scores on six catches for 147 yards. Nathan Matthews added 3 catches for 131 yards and 2 TDs. Josh Crawford got a TD among his nine totes for 118 yards. QB Joey Rosamond hit 14of-16 passes for 250 yards and six touchdowns in the mercy rule victory. The ACS D was led by Mikey Rollins’ 16 tackles and two fumble recoveries. Elijah Denton added 14 tackles, N. Matthews 11, and Joe Carlson 10. Trinity Christian is next up in the semifinals.

JV, 9th football seasons conclude The football finales against Lake Dallas did not go as planned for the subvarsity Hornets. The JV (3-7) lost 19-9 as the Falcons scored early then held off Azle. A short TD run by Dylan Moore accounted for AHS’ only score, coaches noted. Late in the game, the defense carded a safety when Dakota Bartley blocked a punt. Other D standouts were Michael Mendez, Jeffrey Johnson, and Devon Venable. The 9th Green (4-6) tumbled 20-14. Clayton Williams scored on a “bruising” 24-yard TD run. Chace Blackburn threw to Ricky Aregullin for a 74-yard

score in the fourth quarter. Linemen Chase Slack and Micah Rogers earned kudos. Two linebackers shone: Sam Rodgers intercepted a pass and Seth Bell “dominated the Falcon run game,” said coaches. Isaiah Mata and Carson Martinez also stood out. The 9th White lost a close one, 19-18. Trevor Hill was stellar on both sides of the ball, coaches recalled. He scored a on 30yard run and threw a 20-yard TD pass to James Conrique. A 2-yard Dakota Hutson run was AHS’ other tally. Also strong offensively were Armando Garcia and Cole Williams. Matthew Rager, Dylan GibHornet defenders Jack Collins (30) and Jace Clay (21) sack the Lake Dallas Falcon son, and Cutter Cox led the D. QB in the junior varsity season finale Nov. 7.

Movie Man

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Thoroughly average bad guys hurt Marvel sequel Sequels are tricky things. When a movie hits, it’s rare when the follow-up is as good or better. Sometimes they’re still pretty good, but just a notch below the original. About the film Marvel Comic superhero Thor, like Iron Man, was a second tier character. While the God of Thunder certainly had his devotees, the Big Boys were always Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. All others followed, including the X-Men and the Hulk – popular today but not when they first came out. Thor was one of those characters who grew into prominence. Like Wolverine, Thor did not debut in his own book, but originally appeared in another mag. Wolvie first showed up in The Incredible Hulk No. 181 (well, there was a one panel appearance the previous issue). Thor originally popped up in 1962 in Journey into Mystery No. 83 and caught kids’ eyes. He got his own comic in 1966, and it ran for hundreds of issues. (As a Marvel boy growing up, the Movie Man remembers a Thor adventure where the Norse god actually lost a battle, to the Sandman. It was the first time Movie Boy had ever seen a hero get defeated. [Naturally, the Asgardian rallied and smote Sandman big time in the next issue.]) The 2011 Thor movie (Movie Man No. 929, a 7) was a surprise; it did everything right with its look and bad guy – brother Loki – and, most of all, humor. Witty remarks during battles are superhero comic book staples. Thor’s banter often was laced with “thees” and “thous” which made the lines even funnier. The first movie had that in spades and it worked. Now, with The Dark World, there are some yuks but cer-

tainly fewer. Good thing around.


Thor: The Dark World


The plot (spoiler) Thor (Chris Hemsworth) had his own adventure then helped out the Avengers, so he hasn’t seen his earthling lady love Jane (Natalie Portman) for two years. He returns, however, when she discovers a portal on our planet and gets infected with the Aether (“ether”), an evil substance. Hemsworth takes Portman to his home planet of Asgard. The ancient Dark Elves seek the Aether because the seven realms Asgard and their king Odin (Anthony Hopkins) protect are about to line up which means the Aether possessor can control them all. (The Movie Man has done you a huge favor by explaining this much better than the movie does.) Those Dark Elves are tough, led by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). Things look bad for Asgard, et al, so Hemsworth must turn to his recently incarcerated brother, Loki (Tom Huddleston) for help. There’s a giant battle where a great sacrifice is made so Thor can win. Or so it appears. Eccleston and Hemsworth engage in a mighty fight that shoots them between worlds through the portals.

Movie Man Meanwhile, as they pop up on earth while dueling, Portman and recently returned scientist Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) work to bring an end to the mess by destroying the Aether. Eventually, Hemsworth returns to Asgard to turn down the crown. Daddy Hopkins says, well, okay, but then…

chuckle. The other great moment is a spoiler and under Best Scene. The movie has some laughs but not like the first. Still, The Dark World fares much better when on Earth. Skarsgard, pants-less, get off a real zinger. The effects are solid, especially the Viking-esque skiffs that go from sailing on the water then go zipping into outer space. The Dark World has two stingers. The first “extra scene” comes early during the end credits and it’s the one that sets up the next Thor movie.

What works Hemsworth looks perfect as Thor. And equally well-cast is Huddleston. His Loki is a fantastic character, the sort you love to hate. There are a couple of standout moments. One is the ending; it’s boffo and classic Mar- Best scene (spoiler) Hemsworth has freed Hudvel – the Movie Man had to

dleston. As they walk, Huddleston, a shape shifter, keeps changing his appearance as the duo pass columns. He even changes Thor into a female warrior that’s sweet on the God of Thunder, Sif (Jaimie Alexander). The kicker comes when Huddleston becomes Captain America (Chris Rogers) and begins mockingly riffing on all that Mr. Patriotic aspires – apple pie, freedom, justice. It’s pretty funny.

The rating There’s a brief, mild invective, but it’s the fighting and scary critters that earn the movie its PG-13 rating. Overall, it’s quite mild.

Summing up Thor remains a super character and he makes the Avengers that much more fun. The Dark World isn’t one of the great superhero movies, but What doesn’t work it’s far from the worst. Fans Aside from not being as hu- will like it more than the avmorous as the original, Hem- erage moviegoer, but even the sworth is pretty bland here latter can enjoy it. too often; Huddleston really jacks the film up when he’s around.

Earth shakes continue


BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN It was Tuesday, Nov. 5 – Election Day and the day Azle High School’s Marching Green Pride competed for the state title – when the earth started shaking around Springtown and Azle. At 9:32 p.m. that night, a 2.6 magnitude earthquake rattled the Reno area. Oddly, some folks felt it while others did not. That was just the beginning. Since then, four additional quakes have shaken the area. The five recorded events include: • 2.6 magnitude about 1 mile southeast of Reno; • 2.7 magnitude about 2.5 miles southwest of Springtown; • 2.9 magnitude about 2 miles southeast of Springtown; • 3.0 magnitude about 2 miles south of Springtown; • 2.8 magnitude about 1/2 mile west of Briar. Folks around town seem to have a few different theories about why the earthquakes are occurring.

Springtown 2.9

2.6 3.0 2.7


There’s the apocalypse theory. Sources close to the reigning authority on that subject would only confirm that signs and wonders (like earthquakes) will continue to increase, but no one knows the day or the hour of His return. Then there’s the most-popular theory, the fracking theory. Tim Hartley, spokesman for Devon Energy, one of the leading gas well operators in North Texas, said his company is obviously aware of the recent seismic activity here. “We are as concerned as anyone about it, and we don’t think anyone is completely certain of the cause,” Hartley said from his office in Oklahoma City, where the company is based. “Earthquakes are a natural phenomenon, and yet we understand there is increased study to see if there are any man-made causes. “At Devon Energy, we are a ‘best practices’-focused company

– everything we do, we try to do it the right way with our neighbors in mind,” Hartley said. “We live here, too.” Hartley pointed to the increased seismic activity in the Oklahoma City area that’s caused tremendous research to try and determine whether fracking is a contributor to the earth’s shifting. “So far, the people who study this for a living aren’t even sure,” Hartley said. Finally, there’s the theory that we live on – or close to, depending upon who’s talking – the Balcones Fault Zone, and earthquakes tend to occur along fault lines. Regardless of the cause, the Azle News and Springtown Epigraph will continue to monitor any further shaking and report incidents as they occur on both Facebook and Twitter. Unless the next one is the Big One.

Sales tax figures: Azle ekes up, Springtown tumbles Large gains and large losses punctuate otherwise slow climb Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced Nov. 6 that state sales tax revenue in October was $2.14 billion, up 5.4 percent compared to October 2012. The sales tax figures represent September sales reported by monthly tax filers and July, August and September sales reported by quarterly filers. Locally, it was a familiar hodge-podge of small ups and downs interspersed with a few notably large rises and falls. Azle showed a gain over November 2012 of less than one percent – 0.74 percent, to be exact – with $186,934 compared with $185,553 last year. With one month remaining in the calendar year, the city is up 2.89 percent in year-to-date collections, $1,947,150 this year compared with $1,892,234 in 2012. Springtown, however, showed a large loss this month, collecting just $75,617 compared with $99,015 in November 2012. That puts the city behind by 3.87 percent in its year-to-date totals, with $818,968 so far this year compared with $851,959 in the first 11 months of 2012.

Azle’s Crime Control and Prevention District saw a 26.30 percent jump in revenues in November with $33,018 compared with $26,141 in November 2012. The district’s year-todate revenues are at $362,453, up 5.92 percent from last year’s $342,172. In Reno, a November check for $8,975 represents a 34.46 percent gain over November 2012 revenues of $6,674. That brings year-to-date totals to $78,989, up 11.36 percent from 2012 year-to-date totals of $70,927. But Sanctuary’s revenue for November dropped 4.65 percent, from $1,302 in November 2012 to $1,242. Year-to-date, the tiny town has collected $12,509, a 0.85 percent drop from the $12,618 it had collected in the first 11 months of 2012. Parker County received $654,181 in November, 14.67 percent more than its November revenue of $570,478. The county’s year-to-date revenue is up from $6,253,994 in 2012 to $6,395,808, a gain of 2.26 percent. In total, the cities in Parker County received $1,327,674


in November sales tax revenues. That represents a 0.58 percent gain over November 2012 totals of $1,319,996. With $14,303,820 in yearto-date revenues, those cities are up 3.41 percent over 2012 year-to-date totals of $13,831,725. On the Tarrant County side, Lakeside’s November revenue is $6,724, 8.79 percent less than its November 2012 revenue of $7,372. The city’s year-to-date totals are at $67,258, 6.22 percent below its 2012 revenues of $71,725. In Pelican Bay, November revenue of $1,496 is down 8.80 percent from $1,640 in November 2012. For the first 11 months of 2012, its total revenues of $17,171 are down 18.49 percent from 2012 levels of $21,068. Cities in Tarrant County received $40,310,974 in November, a 1.80 percent increase from November 2012 revenues of $39,597,209. But year-to-date totals of 406,725,000 remain up 4.94 percent from 2012 levels of $387,578,514. Combs will send cities, coun-

Leewright, Roberts certified to help military personnel Two Azle residents have earned special certification that helps them help relocating military personnel. Lynn Roberts with Keller Williams Realty and Debi Leewright with Springtown’s Weichert Realtors, Team Realty, have earned the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification. The National Association of Realtors confers the MRP certification to Realtors who want to help military personnel and veterans find housing solutions that best meet their needs and allow them to take full advan-

tage of their military benefits. When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful. Realtors who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans. NAR President Gary Thomas, broker-owner of Evergreen Realty, in Villa Park, California said, “The Military Relocation Professional certification will help Realtors hone their knowledge and skills for work-

Holiday decorating not bound to strict schedules Some people are so eager for Christmas to arrive that they simply cannot wait long to transform their homes from the traditional decor into a holiday wonderland. Others prefer to build up the suspense of the season and wait until mid-December before decking the halls. There is no right or wrong time to start decorating, but there are some tips to make that process easier. Christmas items can sometimes be found on store shelves as early as September, and even those homeowners who intend to decorate when the season is in full swing can purchase items now and then bring them out when the time comes to decorate. Shopping early allows holiday enthusiasts to be more choosy about their decorations. Many families start their holiday decorating on the day after Thanksgiving. Such families should know there are benefits to using artificial greenery in the decor. A real Christmas tree or wreath may dry out and present a fire hazard if purchased too early. If you want the tree in the window for a full month or more, an artificial tree is a safer choice. Decorating before December also allows families to enjoy their decorations much

longer. It can be hard work to decorate the house, and equally arduous to remove those decorations, so decorating earlier allows homeowners to enjoy the fruits of their labors a lot longer than they would if they decorate in December. Some people feel that decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving is a tad too early, and there are advantages to decorating in early or mid-December, when stores have a wider selection of decorations at shoppers’ disposal. Some stores do not display all of their merchandise until after Thanksgiving. If you have your heart set on a natural Christmas tree, decorating later helps to ensure the tree remains fresh, fragrant and safe with the right care. Homeowners who delay their decorations also can take inventory of what neighbors are doing and design a decorating scheme that blends with the neighborhood or stands out. Some families even prefer to save their decorating until right before Christmas, choosing to decorate on Christmas Eve. Those who prefer to a more religious them to their holiday decorations may prefer to decorate later and keep their decorations on display until the celebration

of the Epiphany, when the magi are said to have arrived bearing gifts for the baby Jesus. Whether families enjoy stringing up lights as soon as Thanksgiving is over or waiting until Christmas Eve, there is no wrong way to embrace the spirit of the season.

Out-of-the-box themes for your holiday party Parties are an integral part of the holiday season, when friends and family gather to celebrate and give thanks. For holiday hosts, parties are a great opportunity to make the season even more festive with an event that guests won’t soon forget. The following are just a few themes to make your holiday party as memorable as it is merry. • Christmas sweater party: Christmas sweater parties have grown in popularity over the last decade, when revelers have tried to outdo one another with the most outrageous holidaythemed sweater. Give prizes for the most outlandish sweater and let guests know early on so

they can begin their hunt for a holiday sweater that’s so ugly or outrageous you can’t help but love it. • Christmas costume party: Costume parties aren’t just for Halloween. This holiday season, consider making your holiday bash a costume party, encouraging guests to dress up as their favorite characters from holiday tales like “Frosty the Snowman,” “A Christmas Carol” or any of the host of beloved holiday legends. • Caribbean Christmas: The weather come the holiday season may be the one thing to put a damper on the festivities.

Think out-of-the-box on your next party ■ THINK, FROM PAGE 6.

tentially inclement weather, consider a Caribbean theme for your holiday party this season. Rather than wearing sweaters and long pants, wear beach attire and give the party a touch of the Caribbean. Outfit your home in beach decor and serve food and drinks reminiscent of the Caribbean instead of more traditional holiday fare like eggnog and gingerbread cookies. • Film festival: Holiday movies are another tradition of the season, so why not invite friends

and family over for a holiday film marathon? Include classics like It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story and encourage guests to submit their own favorites for consideration. • Christmas karaoke: For those who love to belt out their favorite holiday tunes, consider throwing a Christmas karaoke party that allows guests to perform their own renditions of their favorite Christmas carols. Purchase a home karaoke set and ask guests in advance of the party if there are any particular songs they’d like to perform.

Cream Cheese-Stuffed Peppers Recipe from Amber Plumley

Just as soon as this flaky and delicious family favorite appetizer hits the tabletop, it’s gone. Weeks before Thanksgiving, my family craves these fresh and warm treats. Before guests arrive on Thanksgiving Day, I sneak and devour one or two just to be sure I get a taste! · 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro · 8 fresh whole jalapeño chiles · 1 teaspoon grated lime peel · 1 (8 ounces) can refrigerated Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls · 4 ounces cream cheese softened · 4 ounces fresh, grated Parmesan cheese · 1/4 cup butter or margarine · 1 tablespoon lime juice Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Blend cream cheese, lime juice,

lime peel and cilantro in a bowl and set aside. Cut each jalapeño in half long ways, cut off stems and remove and throw away seeds. On a cutting board, unroll crescent dough and separate the already perforated triangles into 8. Cut each triangle in half, creating a total of 16 triangles. For each jalapeño half, spoon in 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mix; turn jalapeño cheese side down on top of the dough triangle with the point of jalapeño meeting the triangle point. Begin to roll the dough and jalapeño to combine and pinch at ends to seal. In a separate dish, combine melted butter and Parmesan cheese. Dip each jalapeño wrapped in dough into butter and roll in cheese to coat. Place each onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until Parmesan and dough are golden brown. Remove cooking sheet promptly, serve warm. Serves 16.

Elf on the Shelf: useful tool or just creepy? How can a little elf become so popular with families during the holidays? Easy, make it a “special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists.” At least, that’s according to the Elf on the Shelf website, Once “adopted” by a family, the little boy or girl elf begins their daily adventures. Every night they take a trip back to Santa’s home in the North Pole to give a rundown of all things nice – and naughty – that occurred that day.

They return just before the household wakes up, always in a different place of course. What keeps this magic strong is a little holiday belief and childlike wonder. Only two simple rules are given to kids: 1. The elf cannot be touched or the fragile Christmas magic he has may be lost or weakened to the point of not being able to return to the North Pole. 2. The elf cannot speak or move while anyone is in the house – only watch and listen. Most often the elf “appears” in PLEASE SEE LITTLE, PAGE 13.

Self Family Fruit Salad Recipe from Natalie Gentry

Travel tips for holiday visits Thousands of people take to the skies come the holiday season. High fares do doubt await holiday travelers, who also can count on higher baggage fees and fuel surcharges. Buying tickets early can help offset some of those costs, but many travelers may not know where they’ll be spending the holidays until the last minute, leaving them at the mercy of the airlines. Waiting for last-minute airline sales can be tricky, especially during the holidays when everyone needs to travel in a specific date range. Airlines continually evaluate just how many seats they have already sold to determine prices on reduced-fare seating. Getting a good deal or being gouged may come down to a variety of factors, but buying early when flying during a heavy travel season is often the best way to go. Airlines rarely discount tickets during the holiday season, when demand is especially high. Therefore, booking as soon as you know your travel plans increases the likelihood you can get the flight you want and not have to make concessions. In addition to booking early, there are other ways to save some money and arrive relatively jolly for a holiday visit.

• Travel midweek. Flying on a weekday is often less expensive than flying on a weekend. Some travel experts say flights on a Tuesday or Wednesday traditionally offer the lowest fares. • Consider an alternate route. Choosing connecting flights in travel hub cities may cost less than direct, nonstop flights. While from flight to flight may be less convenient, it’s likely to cost less money. • Ship your gifts. Rather than paying high fees for extra checked baggage, ship your gifts or have them directly shipped to your loved ones when buying online. • Book in mid-November. Some travel experts say that Christmas travel is at its cheapest during the middle of November. If you can arrive early at your destination then you can also save. Experts suggest flying before December 17 can earn travelers the best deals. • Choose an unpopular flight time. Early-morning, overnight and dinnertime flights are less expensive than more popular travel times. • Arrive on Christmas. It’s often less expensive to travel on Christmas, when surcharges may be waived and flights may be less packed.

This salad is the culminating dish at my family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone begins asking for it the moment they walk through the door. In fact, the attempts to sneak bites before dinner got so outrageous that, for a few years, my mom and cousin took turns guarding it to make sure everyone ate dinner first. · 10-15 medium apples · 10 large oranges · 2 pounds seedless red grapes

· 1 large can sliced peaches in syrup · 8 bananas · 3/4 cup sugar

Refrigerate. Two hours before serving Slice the bananas into medallions. Add bananas and stir. Refrigerate.

Night before Peel and cut the apples and oranges into bite sized pieces. Cut the grapes in half. Cut the peaches into bit sized pieces. Save the syrup. Put syrup, apples, oranges, peaches and grapes in a large bowl. Stir in sugar (add more sugar if fruit isn’t very sweet). Add Fruit-Fresh to keep fruit from browning.

Serves 12. Note: Splenda can be substituted for half (but not all) of the sugar. Salad will end up dry if all sugar is replaced. This salad tastes best if prepared the night before. That way the juices from the fruits have time to blend.

Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. Regardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little knowhow. Prepare The first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you don’t have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to recipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wrap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.

Paper or Bags? When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. That’s because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when you’re rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means you’ll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. Gift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when you’re short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes -- and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts -- they are often more convenient.

• Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so there’s no waste. • Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. • Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. • Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. • Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. • Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Practice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. Having the right paper, a few Other Tips There are different tips that can help with decorative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year. wrapping.

Secrets to holiday baking success Certain tips can ensure your holiday baking is successful. Baking is popular come the holiday season, when baked goods are often gifted or shared with family and friends at holiday gatherings. Individuals turn out sweet treats left and right, and these treats are often gobbled up by appreciative holiday revelers. Although some people have mastered baked goods, others can benefit from a few tricks of the trade. Utilize these tips to make holiday baking that much easier. • Overworked cookie dough may result in dry cookies. Try not to handle dough more than is necessary to roll it out to desired thickness. When rolling the dough, put it between

two pieces of waxed paper to reduce flour usage on the rolling pin. • When baking brownies or other bar-type cookies, line the inside of the pan with greased aluminum foil. This way you can lift out the dessert and cut it neatly instead of risking sticking. • The same technique can be used when baking cookies. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and bake as directed. The cookies should slide right off when done, and you won’t have messy pans to wash afterward.

• Double-check your oven temperature with a reliable thermometer to make sure it is accurate. This will help you bake more efficiently and adjust the time or temperature accordingly. • Many cookie doughs can be refrigerated or even frozen, so you can make a big batch and then spread out your baking as needed throughout the season.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe from Erienne Reed

Pumpkin and cheesecake collide in a wonderful, holiday dessert. You can make your own yummy graham cracker crust, but I opt for the just as good – and easier – store bought pie crust already in foil pan. · 2/3 cup light brown sugar · 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon · 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger · 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves · 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg · 1/4 teaspoon salt · 2 packages (8 ounce) cream cheese, room temperature · 3 large eggs, room temperature · 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract · 1 cup pure pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)

BRACE and beat until creamy and smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well (about 30 seconds) after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract and pumpkin puree. Pour the filling over the crust in the foil pan and place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Place a cake pan, filled halfway with hot water, on the bottom shelf of your oven to moisten the air. Bake the cheesecake for 30 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees and continue to bake the cheesecake for another 10-20 minutes, or until the edges of the cheesecake are puffed but the center is still a little wet and jiggles when you gently shake the pan. Total baking time 40-60 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Then place the plastic pie cover or a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the pan so the cheesecake will cool slowly. When completely cooled, cover and refrigerate at least eight hours, preferably overnight, before serving.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. In a separate bowl, stir to combine the sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), on low speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Makes 1 deep dish pie or 2 regular Gradually add the sugar mixture size pies.
