Ice wreaks havoc on local activities Page 1B

Ice slipped slowly off the roof of Azle First United Methodist Church’s family life center Monday afternoon, as if reminding us all to be patient. A highly anticipated Tuesday warmup was weak at best; Azle schools remained closed on Wednesday due to poor road conditions as well as a broken water main at Azle High School.

Holy seismicity Earthquake equipment headed for Azle BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Although earthquakes in the Azle, Reno, and Springtown areas seem to have decreased somewhat in frequency, they do not appear to be losing strength. A 3.6 magnitude quake woke many folks from slumber at 12:10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. At the time, it had been about five days since a quake had occurred. On Tuesday, Dec. 10, numerous area residents reported they felt a mild quake around 9:45 a.m. At 4:15 p.m., the United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed a 2.7 magnitude occurred between Windjammer Lane and Top Gallant Court – pretty much smack dab in the middle of Oak Harbor Estates, arguably Azle’s most affluent neighborhood. Also, the largest of all 20-plus quakes that have occurred in the area since the shaking began Nov. 5 was recorded Monday, Dec. 9, at 3:23 a.m. about 11 miles north-northeast of Mineral Wells. It registered a magnitude of 3.7. The Mayor of Azle, Alan Brundrett, con-

firmed Tuesday that USGS has shipped four seismographs to the Huffington Department of Earth Sciences at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, from which a team will be dispatched to Azle to install the equipment. Brundrett explained that after city officials contacted Congresswoman Kay Granger, she put them in contact with W.L. “Bill” Ellsworth, an earthquake expert with USGS. During a conference call with Ellsworth, they learned the Azle area quakes were already under scrutiny by the agency at its headquarters in California. “Ellsworth said he had the equipment sitting on his desk and was getting it ready for shipment when we called,” Brundrett said. “It was already in his plan.” This week’s ice storm, coupled with the fact that almost everyone associated with the SMU earth science program is attending the American Geophysical Union Conference in San Francisco, have created delays in getting the seismographic equipment deployed into the area.

UIL releases biennial numbers early Azle stays in same classification level BY MARK K. CAMPBELL The numbers are out, but the districts aren’t. The University Interscholastic League (UIL) released its new alignment configuration and numbers on Dec. 2. While Azle remains among schools of the same size, the alteration of classifications means AISD will now compete against “5A” schools. It is really no change at all. Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, all UIL classifications will be bumped up one number. That’s because six-man will be called 1A. So 1A becomes 2A, etc. Azle will move from 4A to 5A. For the first time ever, there will be a 6A in Texas. Every two years, Texas schools turn in a “snapshot” of school attendance. Last October, Azle’s number was 1,688. With the UIL’s 5A conference span being 1,060 to 2,099, Azle

is safely in the middle of the pack. And that’s good news, athletic director Scott Anderson said. “The numbers keep going up every two years. Not too long ago, we were concerned with going up to 5A – now 6A – when the number was in the high 1,800s,” he said. “Now we are pretty much in the middle.” Biennially, the UIL creates four regions comprised of a variety of districts. Those district listings for football and basketball are released the first Monday of every other February, the third in 2014. There’s great anticipation biennially to see which schools yours will be paired with. (The UIL will release district alignments for other activities in the order of their seasons, an Austin release said.) This December release of the classification numbers early has not affected that great day of mystery in February, however. Anderson said, “You would think it might give you a better

idea of what your new district will look like, but we could go in any direction.” That was proven in the most recent realignment when Azle was shipped off to Denton and Wichita Falls schools. And, incredibly, even longer trips could await if the UIL so says. Aside from the Wichita Falls schools – Old High and Rider will be 5A like Azle – two other 5A West Texas schools are out on a limb. “Abilene Cooper and San Angelo Lake View are out there with no obvious place to go,” Anderson said. Still, the release of the span of classifications was a positive, Anderson said. “I think it was a great idea to release the cutoffs early,” he noted. “It will definitely keep most schools from having to scramble [with schedules] in February.” And maybe plot out the fastest route to Abilene and San Angelo.

Seismographic equipment headed for Azle ■ SEISMOGRAPHIC, FROM PAGE ONE.

But that should happen no later than next week, Brundrett said. In a nutshell, Brundrett said, USGS is looking at injections wells as a possible cause of the area quakes, because they believe they have linked earthquakes to injection wells in other locations. But in addition to studying whether there is any relationship between the injection wells and the quakes, Ellsworth also told Brundrett the nearest seismographic equipment is more than 60 miles from Azle. The next nearest is more than 120 miles away. “They think the epicenters being reported may not be accurate because they are trying

to triangulate the locations of the epicenters using equipment that is so far away,” Brundrett explained. Ellsworth is the author of a study entitled “InjectionInduced Earthquakes” which appeared in Science Magazine July 12, 2013. That study can be read in its entirety by navigating to http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.1225942. Brundrett says he finds it very interesting that once two saltwater disposal wells in the Cleburne area were shut down, the earthquakes that town had experienced back in 2009 stopped. With help from city administrative assistant Susie Hiles, Brundrett is drafting a letter to the Texas Railroad Commis-

What can you do?

sion (TRC), which oversees oil and gas drilling, to request a formal investigation into the situation. Brundrett has contacted State Representatives Charlie Geren and Phil King as well as both the Parker and Tarrant County Commissioners Courts and asked each of them to do the same. He also plans to contact both Reno and Springtown city officials to ask them to get on board as well. “I spoke with a representative at the TRC last week and referenced Mr. Ellsworth’s study,” Brundrett said. “She answered that TRC geologists don’t always agree with USGS geologists.” One thing Brundrett would like to see changed is TRC’s

requirement for saltwater disposal wells to report monthly average pressures. Daily average pressures would be much more helpful when situations arise such as the swarm of earthquakes between Azle and Springtown. Brundrett said he understands that oil and gas must be mined from underground and he doesn’t have any problems with that process. “But if it’s determined that saltwater disposal wells are causing earthquakes, I think they need to treat the wastewater or truck it out to the middle of nowhere and dispose of it there,” Brundrett said. Brundrett and other city officials were slated to meet with representatives of XTO Energy Tuesday afternoon, as well.

If you’ve been to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards website (and, frankly, who in this area hasn’t?) you’ve no doubt seen its “Did You Feel It” feature. Azle Mayor Alan Brundrett has learned that the USGS actually relies heavily on information posted in this section of its website and encourages people to press the “DYFI” button to report what they felt after any earthquake – no matter how small.

‘Thankful’

FM 730 South Accident

Victim recovering from violent motorcycle wreck BY MARK K CAMPBELL “Miraculous.” That’s how Anita CampbellBarnett refers to the recovery of her son following an autumn motorcycle accident. On Sept. 25, Michael Dietel crashed on Highway 730 South near FM 1886. Fortunately, aid was quickly rendered, thanks to an EMT being nearby.

He called for CareFlite, said Campbell-Barnett. Another aiding on the scene was a volunteer firefighter from nearby Silver Creek FD, she said. “Because of the exceptional care given to my son just minutes after the accident, he is alive and doing well,” the mother said. Among Dietel’s injuries were a broken left wrist, a sprained and lacerated right ankle, and a brain bruise. “The brain injury was the most serious and the doctors did not give us any hope,” Campbell-Barnett recalled. She said, however, that “our family is Christian and we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Heavenly Father intervened and saved my son.” Dietel spent three weeks in a critical care unit. “But we know his strength will come in time,” his mother said. She noted that Thanksgiving had special meaning this year. “We had so much to be thankful for. He has made a miraculous recovery with no explanation from the doctors,” Campbell-Barnett said. She knows why he’s getting Firefighter Mark Spillman (right) happened to be pass- better, she said: “God protected ing by right after Michael Dietel’s motorcycle accident him and healed him. We are in September. Spillman rendered aid to the seriously here to give God the glory of injured Dietel. miraculous healing.” Mark Spillman, off-duty from the North Richland Hills Fire Department, lived close and was on his way to the store. Spillman spied Dietel lying in the middle of 730 and began trauma treatment. “He knew exactly what to do,” Campbell-Barnett said. Also quickly arriving on the scene was off-duty Weatherford chief, Jonathan Peacock.

Neither driver claimed any injury following an accident Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 6:35 p.m. at the intersection of FM 730 South and South Stewart Street. According to the accident report filed by Officer R. Lukowsky, a red 2013 Ford Explorer driven by Elizabeth Hard, 49, of Azle, was westbound on Stewart and had stopped before attempting to turn left onto FM 730 South. Cody David Upchurch, 24, also of Azle, was northbound on FM 730 at the wheel of a red 1990 Nissan 240SX. Hard pulled out in front of Upchurch, who was unable to stop his vehicle before striking hers.

EML Dam shows no damage from quakes Officials at the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) in Fort Worth have announced that recent earthquakes near Eagle Mountain Lake have had no structural impact on the reservoir’s dam. “We have been closely monitoring instrumentation at the dam and conducting daily visual inspections over the last few weeks,” said TRWD Dam Safety Engineer Louie Verreault. “We have seen no change in the structure’s foundation, embankment or spillways. All indications are that the dam is in excellent condition.” Verreault, who has served as TRWD’s dam safety engineer for the last 22 years, and his staff routinely collect information and conduct surveys at each of the district’s dams throughout the year.

TRWD also maintains the dams at Lake Bridgeport, Cedar Creek Lake, Richland-Chambers Reservoir, Marine Creek and Cement Creek. “We monitor conditions at our dams yearround. But, we will continue to track this situation closely if the earthquakes continue in that area,” Verreault said. Verreault also noted the district recently completed a project at the Eagle Mountain Dam that brought the 80-year old structure up to current design standards. The five-year analysis also included an indepth look at the dam and its foundation, and how they would respond in extreme conditions such as massive floods. The dam was given a clean bill of health.

‘Bay police to conduct warrant roundup BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Heads up. If you have an outstanding traffic warrant issued by the City of Pelican Bay, here’s your one opportunity to take care of it – at a discount, no less – without going to jail. Until Jan. 13, 2014, the Pelican Bay Police Department has announced it will conduct a “warrant roundup” for people with outstanding city tickets. Prior to that date, the Pelican Bay municipal court is offering a 50 percent reduction in “failure to appear in court” as well as “violating promise to appear in court” fines. In some cases, that can save an individual as much as $300. The offer is only good through Jan. 12, 2014 and all fine amounts will be restored to their

original values beginning Jan. 13, 2014. When the roundup begins on Jan. 13, officers with the Pelican Bay Police Department will begin tracking down violators either at their homes or places of business to serve warrants on the spot. Individuals with outstanding warrants will be taken to jail where they will be required to either post bond or serve their time out in jail. “The city is willing to work with people that have traffic warrants, if they will just ask,” Chief Jason Farris said. “However, if they do not, people who have warrants can expect officers to arrest them. State law allows police officers to go anywhere at any time to serve these warrants.” If you have an outstanding traffic warrant from Pelican Bay and want to take advantage of the court’s offer to help, contact the Pelican Bay municipal court at 817-444-1234.

Wrestling ladies 12-0 in contest

BY MARK K. CAMPBELL When you have a young wrestling squad you like to see them get some time on the mats against rivals. The recent icy weather has brought cancellations for AHS coach Chris Allen’s squads. On Dec. 3, Azle hosted a dual with Saginaw Chisholm Trail, Boswell, and Haltom. The Lady Hornets, led by defending state champion Jesse Grubbs, went a perfect 12-for12. Grubbs pinned her opponent in just 16 seconds. Allen said, “We actually had only two matches go into the second period, so all wins came via pins.” The ladies competed in a non-dual point system “due to holes in several of the girls’ lineups,” Allen recalled. “We matched up all possible matches and wrestled them before each dual,” he added. Azle High School coach Chris Allen instructs a Hornet after a match. AHS got in a duals clash at home Dec. 3, but The coach said his Lady Horthe icy weather forced cancellation of two other events.

Freshman Lady Hornets tip off hoops season The young Lady Hornet basketball season had the freshmen AHS girls playing a trio of games. Azle (2-1) defeated Granbury 26-17 on Nov. 8 as the Lady Hornets won every quarter. Breeona Cannon was the catalyst; she scored a team-high 10 points. Sarah Idell added 4, Heather Patterson scored 3, and Bethany Smith and Chelsea Padgett netted 2 points apiece. On Nov. 12, the frosh squad traveled to Sanger and lost, 3125. Azle opened with an 8-5 first period advantage. But a 2-point AHS second quarter allowed the hosts to wrest the lead away.

Once again, Cannon led Azle in scoring. This time she hit for 11 points. Jordan Newman was next with 5 followed by Jordyn Mathis with 4 points and 3 by Maci Strickland. Back home on Nov. 25, Azle blanked visiting Arlington Sam Houston in the opening quarter and went on to a 29-15 victory. Cannon’s 14 points almost out-scored her rivals. Smith and Mathis netted 4 points, Strickland scored 3, and Hayley Schlueter and Breon Fricke rounded out the scoring with 2 points each. Next up, like with the varsity and JV, is a district clash with Lake Dallas Dec. 13.

Weather sends schedules sliding When school’s out, sporting events are also canceled. So gyms have been mighty quiet at Azle High School lately. The Lady Hornets had a scheduled open date on Dec. 6, the first day schools were closed. That was to allow some time to get ready for the District 5-4A opener at Byron Nelson. But lingering icy roads canceled that contest. Earlier on Dec. 3, Azle (9-5) defeated Dallas Samuell 52-32. Morgan Prentice and Taylor Fulfer both reached double digits with 17 and 10 points, respectively. Valarie Matlock scored 8. AHS held a commanding 29Lady Hornet Maci Wilbanks and her Azle cohorts 13 halftime lead.

turn to the hardwood until Friday, Dec. 13 against Lake Dallas at home. The boys team, led by Eddy Prather, has only managed to get in just four games this season so far. Azle (0-4) had a varsity and JV tournament dashed at Boswell and a freshman event canceled at Fort Worth South Hills. A Wednesday, Dec. 10 varsity game against Granbury was in jeopardy with AISD being closed for a water leak that day. Whether the game was played was not available at press time. If that game wasn’t played, AHS will have gone from Nov. 22 until Dec. 12 without facing any foes. All boys teams head to Granbury tourneys Dec. 12. Hopefully.

improved effort after the last two duals.” Allen said he was especially pleased with the wrestling of Lauren Gilbert and Ruby Aroisa. The boys swept all three foes, beating Chisholm Trail 57-11, Boswell 45-27, and Haltom 4533. While Azle was victorious, Allen said AHS struggled at times. “We didn’t wrestle that well and made a lot of mistakes that we are working on correcting,” the coach said. He added, “But we wrestled good enough to win.” The varsity contains several inexperienced athletes, Allen said. “We are working hard on fixing our mistakes. We need to wrestle smarter and not force the issue. “We are a very young group, so I am proud of how they are handling things thus far,” Allen said.

News flash: Grandparenting is not for wimps

I

laid down to sleep on a caterpillar. Not a real one. Or even a Caterpillar tractor – which would’ve been more comfortable. This caterpillar was a four-foot long stuffed animal and was my pillow as I reclined on a single layer of egg-crate foam that separated me from the floor. Earlier, the Bride and I had prepared for the predicted icy onslaught by buying cabin fever essentials like hot wings and getting some DVDs from the library. (Spaceballs: not as funny as I remembered. Life of Pi: still awesome). Saturday night, we were about to binge watch Castle when a daughter called and asked how many barfs are permitted after you hit your head before you should get checked out. My old firefighter training said two; the pediatrician said three. And, since No. 3 was occurring during the conversation, medical attention was deemed necessary for six-year-old grandson

Link. When zooming down a hill sledding, he cracked the right side of his face on a chain link fence pole. The doctor said to go to the ER. But the daughter’s car was immovable because it not only was parked atop their slanted ice sheet of a driveway, but backing down would shoot it right across the street into the neighbor’s cars parked on the street. Grandparents to the rescue! I had put the four-wheel drive pickup in the covered shop. But we needed some weight in the back to negotiate streets thick with several inches of ice. I found: a 50-pound bag of sand with about 23 pounds left in it; a big chunk of Hill Country granite – at least 60 pounds – I had carried forever on a prior vacation; a piece of hadite block; and a cast iron skillet filled with 10-pound weights I used to lift. We crept toward the daughter’s house, 10 highway miles away. With only one exciting sideways adventure,

we made it. We loaded up Link; his red/blue/black eye was swollen shut and his face ruby from the violent impact. (Nothing hurts the heart more than an injured ON YOUR child.) We made it MARK to the hospital Mark K. Campbell entrance where his “Hey, guys” let us know that he had one more barfing episode left. The ER got us right in. I thought he might have a concussion, but CT scans said no. It did reveal, however, a fracture of the orbit around his right eye. The doctor pointed it out and it was plain as day on the x-ray, clearly

separated. We were given the number of a plastic surgeon to consult when the ice melted. On the way home, we got some meds at a 24-hour pharmacy. Then we were just a mile from getting Link back into a warm bed, with some necessary Rx. That’s when I made the poor decision to go the closest way home instead of the route we had travelled successfully to the ER. This closer route contained a substantial hill. I thought I could nurse the truck down it. I could not. The sliding began then accelerated and, with the daughter holding the boy’s head and the bride – about 10 years past a wreck that had hurt her back – braced for impact, we absolutely creamed the curb while perfectly sideways. Some things went right. The giant granite rock just broke; it didn’t come flying into the truck cab. We didn’t flip – we just clobbered the curb. And Link suffered no more trauma in his

second big collision of the day. One tire went flat and the other rim bent. The truck was stuck in a yard, by some yucca and a former mailbox. So we walked to the daughter’s nearby house and settled in. That’s where I slept on a caterpillar in the floor, only occasionally kicking the Glow Worm that serenaded lightly with “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” Grandparenting is not for wimps. I got up several times to check on the boy who wanted to sleep on the couch. Poor little dude! Thankfully, he slept well. We finally got the truck unstuck by paying a tire repair guy $75 and watching the good-natured country boy solve several dilemmas to get us free. That was the best $75 I’ve ever spent. Like I said, grandparenting is not for wimps. We were in bed by 5:45 that afternoon. Never did watch Castle. Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and he is happy to report that Link needs no surgery.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Earthquakes: Where’s Superman, when we need him? OK, I believe I have solved the problem of why we are having so many earthquakes in Azle and around the area including Springtown. You remember the 1951 movie Superman and the Mole Men? In it, mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and Lois Lane are sent to the small town of Silsby for the inauguration of the world's deepest oil well. Unbeknownst to the drillers, the drill shaft has penetrated the underground home of the Mole Men, a race of small, furry (though bald-headed) beings. The Mole Men come up through the shaft at night to explore the surface. Well, that's what is happening around here. The Mole People are getting fed up with all that fracking going on. They are digging more burrows and making the ground unstable. I don't understand why some hotshot geologist has not figured this out by now. Where is Superman now that we need him? Les Crocker Paradise

friends, the rewards of work, health, good fortune...and the list goes on. Indeed, I know of no one who can find nothing for which to be grateful. The beauty we find in this season of gratitude and of giving is that each of us has gifts to share...and share we must! At Eagle Mountain UMC, we are especially blessed to be able to give through our pantry, and we can give because of the generosity of others. Brace Chiropractic: Your food drive, continuing through December, has added bountifully to our shelves. Azle Junior High: You continue to amaze us with your energy and your dedication. (You are a reminder of many good years in the halls you now claim as your own!) Azle Christian Church: We simply could not do this work without your continuing support – collectively and individually you humble us. Individuals who serve others frequently do not want to be singled out with recognition; just be aware that your gifts of time and money make ours a "Mission Possible"! So as we list our blessings, let me say to each of you, “Thank you...thank you...thank you!”

Azle post office two weeks ago to an abundance of criminal activity that is so widespread in vice to a beleaguered postal inspection service that is so inept in prosecution (the Keystone cops would be lauded in favorable court outcomes), to, now, the dumbing down of the postal creed. “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night, stays the couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” This is the new age of the postal service with union power grabs and lazy employees as witnessed on this past slightly over-exaggerated apocalyptic weather weekend. “No mail delivery due to hazardous road conditions,” one union official explained to me. (“It’s a free day off.”) Funny, my paperboy can deliver the morning newspaper in his notraction truck and the retail delivery drivers can keep commerce up at retail stores. But some postal employees – who live directly across the street – can’t seem to walk 100 feet or so to their place of employment due to road hazards. Whatever the excuse the union or management gives, it’s the same outcome: rearranging the deck Sue Miller chairs on the Titanic. Inasmuch... The finality is the same: The United States Postal Service is doomed.

P.S. I saw Superman and the Mole Men at the Tivoli Theater on Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth on Saturdays. It was in serial form, and you didn't dare miss a Saturday episode.

Scotsman John Muir stressed nature, national parks

I

have a book that tells about many Scots who have contributed to America. One that was left out was John Muir, a naturalist, a conservationist and certainly a Western man. I also recently found a previously overlooked book in my library, The Wilderness Reader that includes some of Muir's writings. Born in 1838 in Dunbar, Scotland, Muir arrived in the U.S. at age eleven with his family who settled on a farm in Wisconsin. He studied botany and geology at the University of Wisconsin, but never graduated. He went to Canada with a brother to avoid being drafted to fight in the Civil War. Returning in 1866, he worked in a factory. An accident caused him to lose his eyesight temporarily and have to spend six weeks in a darkened room. Disillusioned with machinery, he determined to study plants. Muir turned to nature, making his way after some other travels to California by 1869. He first worked as a

THE

sheepherder and then got a job building a sawmill in the Yosemite Valley. In his spare time he roamed the valley and gained an appreciation of its beauty. For two or three years he lived there, often unemployed. He built a cabin on Yosemite Creek and designed it so that part of the creek flowed through a corner of the room so he could go to sleep to the sound of running water. He wrote about this in his journal. He read Ralph Waldo Emerson's writings and lived the natural life that Emerson preached. Years later Emerson came to Yosemite to visit Muir. Contrary to scientific thought at the time, Muir believed that Yosemite Valley was carved out by glaciers. Scientists said that a giant earthquake caused it. In 1871 Muir found a glacier near Merced Peak, and scientists began to accept his theory. A professor from the University of Wisconsin encouraged Muir to keep writing. In 1873 Muir moved to Oakland,

California and wrote articles about his love of nature. Their appearances in well-known magazines of the day made him famous. In 1879 he visited Alaska and wrote articles extolling the PAGES FROM beauty of what WESTERN he saw. He was the HISTORY first to explore J’Nell L. Pate Glacier Bay other than the natives of the area. After he got back from Alaska, he married a lady, Louisa Strentzel. He had met her earlier and she had urged him to follow his dream and visit Alaska. Her father was a physician who owned a 2,600 acre fruit orchard northeast of Oakland. Muir operated

the orchard for ten years for his fatherin-law, but he longed for the wilds he had left behind. He and his wife had two daughters. Louisa understood his restlessness and periodically would “shoo him” back to his beloved mountain wilderness for a respite from civilization. Muir worked to get Yosemite made into a national park to keep sheep grazing from destroying the natural habitat. In 1892, with a professor from the University of California, Muir helped form the Sierra Club. He was elected president and remained so for 22 years until his death. Finally in 1906 the Club succeeded in getting Yosemite transferred from state control to a national park. (A prior camping trip with President Theodore Roosevelt in the park helped.) Muir saw Yosemite as “God's mountain mansion.” Muir has been considered America's most famous conservationist and called the “Father of our National Parks.” Besides Yosemite, he helped

create Sequoia, Mount Rainier, Petrified Forest, Glacier Bay and Grand Canyon National Parks. At least sixteen places are named after him that include mountains, a glacier, a trail, a wilderness, a national monument, a beach, a national historic site, a college, a high school, a camp, a section of a state highway, an asteroid, and a park back in Dunbar, Scotland. Excerpts from his writings include: He called a canyon “Nature's poem carved in stone.” During a storm he “lost no time in pushing out into the woods to enjoy it.” He closed his eyes “to enjoy the music by itself and to feast quietly on the delicious fragrance that was streaming past.” Muir has been called the “patron saint of the American wilderness,” and California celebrates John Muir Day each April 21, his birthday. 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.

Governor, Texas lawmakers honor Mandela

F

ollowing the death of Nelson Mandela on Dec. 5, Gov. Rick Perry and other elected officials released statements in honor of the former president of South Africa whose message of racial reconciliation and leading role in breaking down apartheid in that country are acknowledged globally. Perry said: “Through his valiant struggle against the injustices of apartheid, Nelson Mandela became a symbol of what one person can do to change the world. His life and legacy will remain an inspiration to people everywhere who believe in the power of freedom to create stronger nations and forge a better world for future generations. Today, the prayers of Texans are with Mandela’s family, his friends, and the people of South Africa.” State Sen. Rodney Ellis of Houston said: “Texas joins the rest of the world in mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela, one of history's bravest leaders.

His sacrifice and courage in the face of unspeakable hardship demonstrated the extent to which some must fight for their freedom. We must all honor his legacy as we continue the struggle to improve all peoples’ lives. My thoughts and prayers are with the Mandela family.” State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio said: “Today, a great man left us. Nelson Mandela was not just a hero of South Africa, but for all of humanity – an inspirational soul who possessed the courage to stand up to injustice, regardless of what it might cost him personally. On the 20th anniversary of his release from prison, I stood inside his former cell on Robben Island, the place where he spent 18 of his 27 years of incarceration. I was overcome with emotion realizing what he sacrificed to end apartheid and free a people.” Van de Putte said two Mandela quotes “daily inspire me in my work as an elected official”: • “Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act

Interim studies are assigned Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who presides over the Senate, last week assigned work to two committees, to be conducted before the Texas Legislature meets in January 2015. On Dec. 4, Dewhurst charged the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Rural Affairs & Homeland Security with studying the state's recent and ongoing efforts to secure the border. Dewhurst asked the committee to study the effectiveness of the recent Department of Public Safety “surge operation” who earlier this fall put more personnel on duty in the Mexico border region. He also asked the committee to evaluate the most effective methods to deal with evolving threats, deter illegal immigration, and deter

The area of transparency and consent, in particular, directs the committee “to identify potential reforms that would increase the ability of citizens to understand the data being collected about them and with whom that data is being shared.”

Movie Man

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Just what is the best movie ever made? Depends... Like declaring Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band or Nevermind or Midnight Memories the greatest album of alltime, picking out the best movie ever made is no easier. Just like with those records – by The Beatles, Nirvana, and One Direction, respectively (the Movie Man had to look up that last one; surprisingly One Direction is not on his playlist [since he’s not 8]) – it depends on whom you ask: grandpa, dad, or kid. Many times, a favorite movie, just like a personal beloved album, depends on where you are – or were – in your life. That’s why, for the Movie Man, the “best” movie of all time is 1974’s Young Frankenstein. It not only hit the Movie Man’s film favs – comedy and Old School monsters – but came along when Movie Wife did. Plus, it became a touchstone of family in-jokes, sealing the Movie Family deal as top movie ever. Looking back The amount of money a movie takes in has no bearing on whether it has generational staying power; it’s because of its quality. And, of course, critics’ – those truly educated in the artistic arc of cinema – choices vary substantially from the common man’s idea of the best ever. Back in the silent era, the most amazing picture was The Birth of a Nation (1915). (To see it today requires understanding its time of creation since it is shockingly racist.) Certainly there are some other classic silent movies, notably Intolerance (1916), The Gold Rush (1925), and, critically especially, Battleship Potemkin (1925). All that changed a couple of decades later. (Well, the movie arrived then; it took a while for awareness of its greatness to set in.) In recent years, the best movie ever made, said many groups, is Citizen Kane (1941).

When Orson Welles’ masterpiece first came out, it battled a media magnate, William Randolph Hearst, on whom the movie is somewhat based. Hearst owned newspapers nationwide and forbade them to even mention Citizen Kane. Theater owners were so afraid of Hearst’s power that they passed on showing the highly-awaited movie. (Kane arrived not too long after Welles’ celebrated War of the Worlds 1938 Halloween radio broadcast that convinced many that America was actually being invaded by Martians.) Still, the movie made back more than double its budget and was nominated for nine Oscars; yet Kane won only for writing. (Hearst’s power was so great that the movie was booed at every mention at that Academy Awards ceremony.) There are books written about the movie’s actual authorship, furthering its mystique. The film was remarkable for pushing the boundaries of what a camera could do. Plus the movie was assembled in a detailed flashback manner. It also contained some remarkable acting. While Kane labored to entice audiences in rural areas – Welles was considered “high brow” to those in the sticks – the movie

Movie Man eventually gained prominence, first in France where it finally arrived after WWII. The film’s celebrity later rose with its TV release in the late 50’s plus its inclusion on some critics’ early “Greatest” lists. Many publications and groups since have heralded Kane as the best movie ever made. The magazine Sight and Sound proclaimed Kane as the top film from 1962 all the way through 2011. In 2012, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958) supplanted it (which, the Movie Man can assure you, is a mistake). The late Roger Ebert said Kane was the best movie ever and so did the American Film Institute (AFI) in 1998. Many

others have named it top 10 if not No. 1. Naturally, there’s some backlash when you say something is the best ever. People watching Kane at home are surely nonplus at the honor. It’s an interesting drama, but the best thing ever done? Are you kidding?! Critically, the Movie Man would rank it No. 1, too. Other contenders If Kane is not the best ever, what is? That ’98 AFI list followed Kane with 2. Casablanca (1942); 3. The Godfather (1972); 4. Gone with the Wind (1939); 5. Lawrence of Arabia (1962); 6. The Wizard of Oz (1939); 7. The Graduate

(1967); 8. On the Waterfront (1954); 9. Schindler’s List (1993); 10. Singing in the Rain (1952). A 2007 reworking of the list kept Kane at No. 1 and swapped The Godfather and Casablanca. (The Graduate rightly dropped 10 spots to 17. Conversely, Vertigo rocketed from 61 to 9, the beginning of it being hailed as an unappreciated classic.) For the Movie Man, only a couple on those lists can compete with Kane: The Godfather (especially if you tack on the second one to make it an epic) and Lawrence of Arabia. Movies have to age a bit before the lens of history can make it clear that they, indeed, are list worthy. That’s happening to 1980’s Raging Bull (24 to 7). There are some average Joe lists out there. A 2008 online poll chose Gone with the Wind No. 1 with Star Wars second. (One generation will certainly forever laud Star Wars as the best ever.) Other winners in polls of the moviegoing public: Casablanca (Los Angeles readers); Seven Samurai (foreign filmgoers ranking, 1954); The Godfather (Entertainment Weekly readers); its sequel (by TV Guide readers); and, on the popular

The Springtown Epigraph

Annual Christmas event a Springtown tradition For years, thousands of Springtown residents have migrated downtown every December for Christmas on the Square. This year’s festive holiday gathering is set for Saturday, Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. There’s a ton of things to do around the Square. Shoppers seeking unique gifts have come to the right place. Scores of vendors will be sprinkled around the Square offering everything from candles and jewelry to a slew of other handmade goods like toys, stockings, ornaments, plush animals, critter clothing, spices, leather goods, cookbooks, glass mosaics, and ceramics. Kids will find plenty of activities scattered around the Square. And if you work up a hunger while investigating the large variety of options, you can find plenty to eat. As usual, a bevy of Christmas performances are planned throughout the day. A concluding festival highlight is the announcement of Bonus Bucks winners at 5 p.m. That’s when seven lucky folks – who are over 18 and present at the drawing – will receive cash that can be spent locally until Feb. 28, 2014. The luckiest person will receive $300 in Bonus Bucks. One will get $200 and five people will be presented with $100.

Bonus Bucks are back for holiday season BY NATALIE GENTRY The Springtown Chamber of Commerce will soon begin its 20th Annual Bonus Bucks campaign, as part of the Christmas on the Square event. Anyone can register at any of numerous participating merchants (see ad in this publication for a list). Then at 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, during Christmas On The Square, a drawing will be held to determine the winners. One $300 winner, one $200 winner, and five $100 winners will be awarded those amounts in Bonus Bucks. The “funny money” may then be redeemed for merchandise at any of the participating merchants. It’s just another way to encourage people to “Shop Springtown First,” and Springtown businesses have enjoyed its success for almost 20 years. Longtime chamber director Judy Smerud, who passed away in 2005, came up with the idea to help promote shopping in Springtown during the Christmas season. The notion of awarding money drew a lot of interest, but there was no way to guarantee that money would be spent at Springtown area businesses. So the concept of a “Bonus Buck” was born. This year, more than 45 Springtown area businesses are involved in the program –

including some in Azle which are also chamber members. Some businesses host Bonus Bucks boxes which allow shoppers to register for the program. Others simply make a donation to a worthy cause. Chamber President Amy

Walker said the $25 investment for businesses to participate in the program is well worth it. “Most of the time businesses more than get their money back from shoppers who come in to register and then stay to buy something else,” she said. “We have no problem selling the idea

to businesses.” The drawing will take place at 5 p.m. under the Springtown Tabernacle. “The program helps promote shopping in Springtown,” Walker said. “It works.” Winners must be present to win.

Those lucky people have through Feb, 2014 to use the Bonus Bucks at participating locations to purchase gifts, pay bills, or buy services just like with cash. For additional information, call the Chamber office at 817220-7828.

NtN sponsors Santa letters, Christmas dinners BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN Every child loves to write a letter to Santa at Christmastime, and once again this year, Santa’s helpers will be in Springtown to collect letters and take them directly to St. Nick. Neighbor to Neighbors (NtN) Food Pantry will sponsor Santa letters again this year. Letters may be dropped off in the big white mailbox by the Santa Sled in the Springtown Square, where Santa’s helpers will pick them up and deliver them to Saint Nick. Santa Claus will respond to every letter personally. Remember to put your return address on every letter so his response will reach you. Santa Claus himself will be in Springtown Dec. 14 from 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m. He will be available for pictures in the Santa Sled on the Square. There is no charge for photos or to see Santa, so bring your

children and pets and be sure to bring your own camera or cell phone to take your own photos. Donations, of course, are always welcome. Cash, clothing, turkeys and hams are most appreciated this time of year. Do not donate mattresses or couches – NtN cannot legally accept them and, in fact, has to pay to dispose of them. NtN distributes, on average, 1,200 pounds of food each of three weeks it’s open per month. That translates to 3.600 pounds of food per month or 43,200 pounds of food per year. Because they are able to buy food at a discounted per-pound rate, cash donations are most effective in helping the needy in the Springtown area. This year NtN will provide Christmas dinner baskets to about 400 families in the Springtown area from 8 a.m.noon Saturday, Dec. 21.

Tree lighting tips Lighting a Christmas tree may seem like child’s play, but time and again people struggle with the task. Untangling wires and wrapping them around boughs can be nerve wracking, but lighting a tree doesn’t have to be a chore when you follow some tips from the professionals. First, keep in mind that wrapping lights around the tree horizontally is more work and often doesn’t produce a multi-dimensional effect. Rather, string the lights from the trunk up to the top, working vertically. This is actually how the tree decorators at Rockefeller Center in New York City do the famous tree year after year. This method helps eliminate tangled wires and empty spots. Remember to plug in the strands of lights before you begin to check for burnt-out bulbs and to adjust the spacing of lights to prevent dark spots. Think about varying light bulb sizes to add more dimension. String an inner layer of small LED white lights to produce an inner glow on the tree before adding larger, colored lights on top to increase visual appeal. Just be sure to match the same wattage of the lights so that you do not have power surges and can prolong the life of the bulbs.

There’s more holiday cheer coming soon BY NATALIE GENTRY As Christmas approaches, Springtown churches are finalizing their celebratory events. First Baptist Church will once again host their Celebrate Christmas presentation Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. and again the next day at the same time. The show features the FBC Celebration Choir and orchestra, with the KidZone The entire story of Jesus, from birth through resurrection, will be told through music and drama. This year, the church will feature four members playing the part of the four New Testament gospel writers with Jerry Hoover as Matthew, Keith Springfield as Mark, Al Garrett as Luke, Lambert Geerlings as John. As these four characters talk to each other and to the audience, they will tell what they remember about the story of Jesus that happened over 2000 years ago. Agnes Independent Baptist will be hosting award-winning vocalist Alan Harris. He will be featured in a special community event Dec. 15. A music-filled sermon will begin at 11a.m. with a full concert scheduled for 6:30 that evening. Harris presents a “blended worship” style that appeals to young and old alike. He has toured nationally with many of the Gaither Home-

coming artists and was recently honored with a Diamond Award nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year. Then on Dec. 22 Agnes Baptist will hold their outreach service entitled “Christmas Begins with Christ” at 11a.m. Members of the Grace Baptist congregation will perform their Christmas play How Mr. Sodd Found Christmas on Dec. 15 at 6:30 p.m.

The play is loosely based on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol set in modern times. A week later on Dec. 22, the church choir will hold its Christmas concert at 6:30 p.m. Hilltop Family Church invites everyone to their special Christmas service on Dec. 22 at 10:45 a.m. All of the events are open to the public.
