City adds bite to its animal control law RICHARD NELSON
New Diboll City Council members Veronica Hernandez and Tom Farley took the oath of office Monday, May 20, and got down to business in their first council meeting. Council approved revisions to the city’s animal control ordinance, giving more enforcement authority to its animal control officer, Donna Brown, and also keeping revenue from fines in the city. Until now, when a stray animal was picked up, fines went through the county. Diboll municipal court will now handle those fees. Brown told council her “goal is to educate,
not legislate.” “A lot of people don’t know what it takes to be a pet owner,” Brown said. In other business, council: ■ Approved a three-year lease for specialized golf course maintenance equipment with Brookside Equipment Sales Inc.; ■ Approved the city manager, city secretary and finance director as TexPool representatives; ■ Approved requesting about $84,000 from the T.L.L. Temple Foundation for sound and lighting improvements for the Lottie and Arthur Temple Civic Center; and ■ Appointed council member Daniel Lopez as the representative on the Deep East Texas Council of Governments Board of Directors.

Freed By Christ
We thank Jesus Christ for all the men and women who have given their lives while serving in the military. We pray for their families. God’s Bible says in Psalm 119: 49-50, “Remember the word to your servant, upon which you have caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, for your word has given me life.” God knows your grief and sorrow that still brings tears to your life. Jesus can help you with all the hurt and sadness. We do not always understand why things happen when they happen, but we can trust God to be there for us. Your loved one is not forgotten and neither are you. Listen to Jesus speak to your heart and let His salvation give you new life. Jesus is the only one who can bring light to dispel your darkness. -- Bro. Kenny Hibbs, First Baptist Church

Yard Beautiful The Diboll Garden Club has concluded its Yard Beautiful
judging for the year and has chosen the yard of Maxine Lovelady at 905 Nelson as the winner for the Fair Acres section. First runner-up was the yard of Millie Thompson at 826 Nelson, and second runner-up was the yard of Carolyn Springfield at 816 Nelson. The Garden Club wishes to thank all who participated in this effort to beautify the community.
Diboll FCCLA has been working with students on each campus to see who could collect the most boxed cake mixes. The class from each grade that collected the most boxes won a cupcake party, with the cupcakes made by the Diboll Culinary Classes -- a portion of the FCCLA. Collectively all campuses gathered more than 1,100 boxed cake mixes to donate to the Cake Angels Foundation. This organization makes custom birthday cakes for children who are in situations that might not permit them to have a birthday cake.
This program directly benefits students in Angelina County, and the Diboll FCCLA students wanted to make sure they did their part, said sponsor Jennifer Garcia. The culinary classes met a Cake Angels representative Tuesday at Bryan’s Smokehouse to donate the massive amount of cake mixes. After the exchange, the culinary students toured the kitchen at Bryan’s and enjoyed lunch. The episode of “Restaurant Impossible” will air on Sunday, and the students had the opportunity to see firsthand the renovations the restaurant experienced.

Wilkerson family enjoys visiting, volleyball As Jay Wyatt is always saying, “How about those Lumberjacks?” What a great game; we hope you keep on winning!! *** Diboll Free Press publisher Richard Nelson brought the Round Table some strawberries from the Pasadena Strawberry Festival he attended last weekend. He and some longtime friends played for the 17th year in the festival’s mud volleyball tournament on Saturday. The tournament has 16 pits about 2.5 feet deep and filled with water. With eight teams on each court, there are 124 teams and more than 1,000 people playing in the mud. His team, “Our Name is Mud,” didn’t make the playoffs this year, but can still live on the glory of winning the tournament a decade ago! *** There were lots of eating, visiting and competitive volleyball games Saturday in Old Orchard Park when members of the Wilkerson family gathered there for a family reunion. Most in attendance were members of one of three brothers: R.V., Van or Dewitt Wilkerson. All decendants of R.V. live here in the area and were present, including his wife, Jackie Bob. Van’s children were Gary and Norma from Laramie, Wyo., and Randal and Karen from Austin. Oda was married to Dewitt and was present with most of her family: George Wayne and his son Keith and Kim from Houston; Betty Wilson of Diboll and Peggy Wilkins and her son Clay from Houston. Daughter Bobbie Joyce and her husband Sterling Burnett were at a Galveston hospital with their daughter, Agenda, who is in ICU. Please remember them in your prayers. Oda Wilkerson received the honor of being the oldest present and Melanie’s 8-month-old Neely
Blakeslee from Marquez was the youngest. There were about 50 family members present for the reunion. *** JoNell Placker will be looking forward to having a reunion with her youngest granddaughter, Rachel Chapman, who flew with a group last Thursday to Madrid, Spain. Rachel will be graduating August 16 from Texas A&M after she returns from studying a semester at Nebrija Univerindad in Madrid. Rachel was excited and happy about her trip; she couldn’t believe her mother Kim and grandmother (reluctantly) agreed for her to go. Her dad Derrell stayed up until 3:30 a.m. tracking the plane until it arrived in Spain. What an unforgettable experience! *** J. F. “Snooks” Bell took some time off from fishing. He came in to buy mixing oil for his chainsaw and said he needed to get started cutting firewood for the winter before it gets too hot. He will celebrate his 87th birthday in July and attributes his age to working hard all his life. *** I can assure you something that will not live long around Tina Hawthorn’s house and that is snakes. She is very protective of her chickens, turkeys and other pets and has already disposed of 14 snakes this year. Most of the time she is pretty calm when she encounters a snake with her pistol in hand, but
being confronted with a stump-tail moccasin made her a little nervous after the shootout was over. Don’t mess with Tina! *** Geraldine Pouland’s birthday is May18. On the 16th her granddaughter Andrea Swor, Wayne Ward and Andrew Bass fried 30 pounds of fish, four large bags of French fries and four recipes of Andrea’s homemade hushpuppies along with cold slaw, carrot cake and ice tea. Dee Adams made a coconut pie for her birthday. Geraldine enjoyed the meal and visiting with others that included: J.D. and Sue Johnson; Joe Donald and Emma Lee Smith, Ima Lee Weisinger, Mary Frances Sheffield, Fran McGilvra, Brandon and Shelby and her 6-week-old great-great granddaughter, Bristol Faith; Brandal and 2-year-old great-great granddaughter, Addison Grace; Roho and Teresa Pouland; Robert Ramsey; and longtime family friend Billy Vernon from Kilgore and his friend, Clyde Wiggins. Geraldine also enjoyed a visit from Glenn Price, Carol Taylor and Fran McClain who were on their way to Los Jarittos for their weekly luncheon. *** Brother David Busby, Pastor of the Assembly of God church on the Alabama Coushatta Reservation came in for local grown honey with the honeycomb and Moon Shine Syrup. Rosie Graham stopped by with her mom and reminded me her daughter teaches in the Diboll ISD, Wendy Cabrera. Rosie is married to DHS graduate Douglas Graham. *** Clarence Davis and his wife Betty stopped by the store. They live in California and were in town for the funeral of Vera Jones. Their daughter is Jacqueline Martin and Clarence graduated from Diboll in 1962
where he played football and basketball for the Temple Tigers. Our condolences to Marcellos and his family for the loss of a sweet lady, Vera Jones. *** The Round Table lost another faithful one who enjoyed visiting and drinking coffee with others. Byford Jones passed away and will be remembered by all the people and friends he could remember and the stories he could tell. Our love to his wife Marcia (Warner), their children, Beverly and Bob and their families. *** Abney’s Fish Truck will be in our parking lot on May 29 from noon until 1 p.m. if you need to stock your pond with fish. He will have 4-inch to 6-inch channel cat for $35 per hundred and 6-inch to 8-inch channel cat for $55 per hundred. If you would like to be assured of availability or questions about the many other fish he has, call Berry Abney at 870-697-3550. *** The Diboll First United Methodist Church is serving catfish dinners to raise funds that will benefit the playground at their church. The catfish dinner will include French fries, hushpuppies and dessert for $8. It will be Friday, May 24 from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. and again from 4:30 until 6 p.m. in their fellowship hall at 401 Hines St., or they will deliver in Diboll.

Children, teens adults can enjoy summer reading “Memorial Day was officially proclaimed May 5, 1868, by Gen. John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every state on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 - 363) to ensure a three-day weekend for federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: Jan. 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis’ birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.”(Source: http://www.usmemorialday. org/backgrnd.html) ***

herself leaving the bustle and action of Capitol Hill for the remote town of Moses Lake, Texas – with husband, stepson, and U-Haul in tow. A sweet, mishap-filled journey into marriage, motherhood, and ranch living ensues, and Mallory is filled with both the wonderment of love and the insecurities of change.

Hopsons, parents back from cruise to Cozumel Jason and Rivers Hopson took his mother, Cyndi Kullback, and dad, Stephen Kullback, to Cozumel, Mexico, for Mother’s Day. They stayed at the Occidental Grand Resort and would recommend the property highly. They enjoyed shopping, snorkeling, diving, parasailing, sailing, dancing and nightly shows. The weather was perfect. All are ready to go back soon. *** Golf and giving are what Brookshire Brothers’ say go hand-in-hand. The Lufkinbased grocery chain holds two charity golf tournaments each year. The proceeds go into the company’s Charitable Foundation. On Monday, Brookshire Brothers’ vendors from across the country converged on Lufkin for the first of its series of charity golf tournaments. Representatives from companies like Kraft, General Mills, Community Coffee and Value Merchandisers teed it up for a good cause. Teams pay from $2,000 to $3,500 in entry fees for the privilege of playing in Monday’s tournament, knowing the money raised is returned to nonprofits in Brookshire Brothers’ market area in Texas and Louisiana. In February, Brookshire Brothers gave checks totaling nearly $100,000 to seven nonprofits including the American Cancer Society, Friends Of the Ellen Trout Zoo, Harold’s House formerly the East Texas Alliance for Children, Boys and Girls Club of Deep East Texas, Alzheimer’s Association’s Houston/Southeast Texas and Capitol of Texas chapters, Volunteer Services Council Of the Lufkin State Supported Living Center and the Angelina Arts Alliance. These tournaments are held
in May and October of each year. This year 68 teams, 75 percent of them from out of the region, played in two separate tournaments. *** Liz Jeffrey just returned from Fort Worth from visiting their new granddaughter, Lila Jane Maroul. Lila’s parents are Michelle Martin Maroul and Johnnie Maroul. She was born May 9. Everyone is doing great. She is the first granddaughter so they are all excited. Michelle and Johnnie reside in Fort Worth. Liz was very happy to be able to stay and help for one week but had to get back to work. Other grandparents are Ken Jeffrey and Rick Martin. Great-grandmother is McXie Martin from San Augustine. *** At the 122nd annual Daughters of the Republic of Texas convention in Beaumont at the Holiday Inn & Suites, the Mary Hall Mantooth Chapter had plenty of representation. As we drove through Woodville, we saw many signs for Kree Harrison who came in second in the American Idol show. The opening reception saw Mary Goodwin, our District IV representative, parade in with the dignitaries followed by officers general and President General Karen Ruth Thompson. Those attending were Kay Graves and Lou Ann Williams from Zachary, Louisiana,
Deborah Graves from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Mary Goodwin, Emma Lee Wilson, president of the Mary Hall Mantooth Chapter, Julie Jumper-Morris from Dallas, Rosemary Varsey, Janie Slack, Lois Chambers, Karen Hall, Paula Metzinger, Len Medford, Susan Sumners plus me. Unable to attend were Dorris Collmorgen and Elizabeth Jenkins. Rosemary was in charge of the sales table where we had our new chapter pin of Angelina, aprons with bluebonnets embroidered on them and oil paintings by Nancy Manning of the Texas flags. For a raffle we had donated by Redd Hutchinson of bignastyfishing.com, a rod special made by Lou Ann Williams’ son, who has Big Nasty Custom Rods. Carolyn Rainey from Richardson won the rod for her husband, who said “OMG” get tickets on it. We all went in different cars and Thursday lunch Julie, Lois Chambers and I ate at Cheddar’s. Janie Slack and Emma Lee Wilson were at the sales table off and on for the three-day convention. The theme of the convention was “Black Gold -- Texas Tea.” Friday afternoon after the business session there was a memorial service. The list of those memorialized was long. From our Mary Hall Mantooth Chapter were: Jeanette Bullock, Doris Jane Foust, Esther Hill Hacker, Dorothy Hale, Benegene Kring and Virginia Everett Samuelson. Karen Kurth Hall sang at the service. Friday at noon, I sat by a lady from Beaumont and I asked her about a place for dinner that night. She recommended Floyds Cajun Seafood and Texas Steakhouse. It was a Don’s Seafood before one of the hur-
ricanes. At the Awards Luncheon on Saturday, the Mary Hall Mantooth Chapter was recognized as being a Six Star Chapter again for a second year. There were 504 DRT members attending the convention with 3,000 members worldwide. Hollis Newsom Bush was recognized with others for her 25-year membership. Carolyn Ericson, from the Stone Fort Chapter in Nacogdoches, was recognized for her 50 years in DRT. Dick Rathgeber, husband of my classmate Sara Ross Rathgeber, spoke about the Republic Village with the Republic of Texas History Complex in Austin which is a Vision for DRT. The essay contest for fourth-graders can be either William Barrett Travis or Travis letter “Victory or Death.” The essay contest for seventh-graders is William B.

I will count them at the end of the day. There were 49 this morning. Makes me feel real special. Contact Janice Ann Rowe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even Christmas discussed at beauty shop At the beauty shop no subject is considered off limits, I am sure. Beauticians hear more about women’s problems and their personal thoughts than even their doctors hear. Hairdressers hear more than they want to hear and, most likely, some really do not pay very much attention to what is said. It has gotten so hot here in the middle of May that I am already looking for cooler weather. We have been blessed not to have hot weather any sooner than now. In the beauty shop one morning another lady and I were talking about Christmas, of all things. Not the coming one in a few months, but those we had nearly 70 years ago. I think one of us remarked about how excited and grateful we

were, yet received so little, way back then. When I smell apples that scent takes me back to Christmas mornings when Santa Claus would have come and gone at our house. I only remember one time Christal and I got a doll each and probably our brother Ishmael was proud of the cap pistol that was under the tree for him. Money was hard to come by and the three items together were not very expensive but still we were lucky to have gotten those. The things we always got under the tree on Christmas morning were a delicious apple, an orange, a Brazil nut
and an English walnut and sometimes a large papershell pecan joined that little bounty. Had we gotten a paper sack full of money, we would not have been any happier. We ate all we got to eat and not a bit of it was wasted. This was a treat that we did not have except at Christmas time. The nuts only came in the grocery store just at holiday time and Mother bought walnuts and Brazil nuts so we could pick out the meat to bake a nut cake. Already in the fall Papa Denman had a black walnut tree on his place and we kids picked enough up to add them to the cake. Pecan trees were handy for us to pick out enough to add to the cake. There was nothing to equal that cake. It was a three layer topped with
seven minute icing. *** Robert and Joyce Adams of Lufkin celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at Ralph and Kacoo’s with family and friends. *** Carolyn Mosley Duke was laid to rest at the age of 65. I did not remember her first name from years ago because everybody called her Sue all her life. She was several years below us in Huntington schools. Preceding her in death were her parents, Jimmy and Mary John Mosley; her brothers, Jimmy, Adron and Eugene Mosley. Sue was Director of Nurses at Southland Health Care for years and all who knew her declared she was an excellent nurse.

*** About one more disaster in the kitchen and I should be declared off limits in the cooking area. I’m trying for that title as I am really tired of trying to think of something that Beamon wants to eat. I don’t really want him to eat many eggs and he has always eaten fried eggs which are certainly the preferable way to him. Reluctantly, I told him I would fix the eggs after he vetoed my variety of good stuff for him to eat. Of course, the last thing to do was get the eggs in the hot oil and he eats them over easy. Just as I was going to turn them and they would be finished, an explosion happened scaring both of us. One of the eggs flew out of the skillet, landing on my clean stove

Retired teachers receive a boost There is just over one week left of the 83rd Legislative Session at your State Capitol, and as the countdown to Sine Die begins, my first bill has passed the Senate and been sent to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. Retired teachers received some long-overdue assistance this week, and with budget negotiations ongoing, both Chambers are debating how to address funding needs for water infrastructure.
A Boost for Retired Teachers
The House passed SB1458 on Friday, which makes revisions to the Teacher Retirement System’s contributions and benefits to ensure the long-term soundness of the pension plan. The bill, in its current form, provides for a supplemental payment (also known as a 13th check) for current retirees, and also allows for a portion of current retirees to receive their first cost-of-living increase since 2001. Because the original version of the bill was amended, a conference committee will likely meet to iron out the details. The bill would also move the TRS retirement fund from possible future insolvency to a system that could pay off its liabilities within 29 to 30 years, which would meet the statutory bar of being actuarially sound. Additionally, it would put the fund in a better position when new Governmental Accounting Standards Board rules take effect in 2014. Our office has heard from hundreds of retired teachers back home in the District who are struggling and concerned about the state of TRS. From day one we have said we hoped that this issue would be addressed by the Legislature, and I am proud that this week I was able to vote in strong support of this measure.
SJR 1 and a Final Push for Water Funding While the House of Representatives has accomplished many of its goals thus far, the need for water infrastructure funding has yet to be met. The House version of the water funding bill was defeated on a point-of-order technicality last month, but a recent Senate resolution has given water funding a new life. SJR 1, as amended by our House Committee on Appropriations, proposes a constitutional amendment to be put to the voters providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund (SWIFT). The

SWIFT is intended to provide adequate and meaningful funding through financial assistance and other incentives in the development of new water supply strategies outlined in the state water plan, as identified and requested by regional planning groups across our great state. The House version of SJR 1 was passed out of Appropriations Friday and will now move to the House floor. With 50-year projections for Texas showing substantial growth in population and water demand, it crucial that we find a way to appropriate the funds necessary to implement the numerous regionally identified strategies in the state water plan that will yield several million acre-feet of water supply per year.
Budget negotiations between the House and Senate have been productive this week. The Governor has made it clear that his requirements for a successful budget include tax relief and infrastructure funding. The conference committee is working hard to produce a budget that includes funding for water and transportation, additional funding for education, and the necessary tax relief needed to promote job growth and keep Texas business friendly. Exceptional budget item requests far outweigh the state’s revenue, and at the end of the day hard decisions will have to be made; but I believe my colleagues and I will have the opportunity to pass a fiscally prudent budget that is reflective of our Texas values.
As always, my staff and I are available during the week at (512) 463-0508 or (936) 634-2762.

Thanks to school board members for service
The recent school board election brings two new faces to the Diboll School Board. Laura Beth Cooper and Rodney Cheshire are both involved parents, proud graduates of Diboll High School, and people of character and integrity. They both ran for the Board out of a genuine desire to work for our students, and they will be good Board members. I look forward to working with them. In the aftermath of elections, though, we sometimes only focus on the winners and look ahead to what they might do. I would like to take a moment to recognize the outgoing Board members for their service. Jim McClain and Faye Jones each served for three years, and we should not be in such a hurry to move along that we fail to thank them for their work. There has been no doubt about Mr. McClain’s passion for Diboll. He wants our students to excel in every area of endeavor, and is willing to be creative to give them the resources they need to be successful. The First Tee program, which uses golf to teach our kids a number of valuable lessons and skills, is 100% attributable to Mr. McClain’s work. Diboll ISD will benefit from initiatives like this for years to come. Mrs. Jones brought a valuable different perspective to the Board. She cares about

Any future projects at that location will be part of her legacy to the children of Diboll. While they will both be honored at the May 28 school board meeting, if you see Mr. McClain or Mrs. Jones in the community, please let them know that you appreciate their service. They both care deeply about the future of Diboll, they were willing to step forward and work for our kids, and they deserve our thanks. Diboll ISD has moved forward over the past three years, and Jim McClain and Faye Jones are part of the reason for that. Trey Wilkerson Diboll
Thanks for the votes; ready to work
I would like to thank the Diboll community for your vote of confidence in giving me the opportunity to serve as your District 1representative for the City Council. I take this responsibility very seriously, and I consider it a privilege to help make decisions that will shape our future. We, the City of Diboll, have many opportunities for growth and change. Change does not occur over night but over time. I hope to be able to make changes for Diboll that will be in the best interest of
everyone in the community. I would like to thank our outgoing councilman Bryan Wilson for his work for the people of Diboll. I will do my best to build upon the foundation that he has helped to put in place. In all things, I promise
We say without a doubt“We Remember.” To all who served and died in the service of our great country Though many have passed and now look down from above We say without a doubt“We Remember!” Sue Hendrick lived in Diboll for several years. Although she now resides in Lufkin, Diboll will always be her East Texas home.

Get into the Game of Life; help others to Kingdom I have this friend that just retired from teaching and was planning to become a missionary in Central Texas. I just heard a rumor that she was turned down because she was divorced. I pray that it isn’t so. However, when we were in that same denomination, we were home missionaries, and we were both married before. Here is what I think. I think
Teacher Mom with
Jan Allbritton the enemy tells us that we cannot do what God has for us because we got divorced, even if we remarried. I believe that he tells us that we cannot do anything for
God because we are of the female gender, and all of us know that females cannot teach or preach to men. Hah! If we all listened to the enemy, most of us would not be in ministry. Most of us would be a mess! Some of these ideas are just of man, and we need to listen to what God has to say. I believe that these guidelines have reasons for being there, but sometimes
God wants to override man. That is what I am talking about!!! In the middle of typing this column, a friend of ours just came in telling us about a young man from his church that survived a motorcycle accident when he hit a hog! His Harley was taken out by a hog. As Mike and Thomas were saying, “A hog took out his hog!” That young man was able to preach the next morning. He
stated that when you have the favor of God on you, He is going to protect you. If you are doing what God planned for you to do, no man or woman is going to stop you from your destiny in Christ! I am hoping that my friend finds her holy unrest and continues to search for what God has for her now. If you and I just realize it, we are in a mission field. TEACHER cont’d p. 6
Make making time for God a priority in your life
“Those who obey him will not be punished. Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right.” -- Ecclesiastes 8:5. Time is often a precious commodity in the Stephens house. This past week was no exception. We had a zillion, or so it felt, things going on. I was the delegator as usual. I would call or e-mail Greg every day to let him know how we were breaking up the daily activities. He would take care of some things on his way home, pick up kids from school if I worked late, and took care of dinner. I would do the rest. We would talk in the evenings to let each other know what was going on, what meetings we had, etc. You see, the end of the year is a busy time for a teacher. There are lots of assessments, making students’ plans for the following year, parent meetings, etc. Greg often has meetings at work and is on call throughout the evening.

Sorting and saving
Interact Club students worked HARD recently at the East Texas Food Bank. They sorted 28,000 pounds of donated food into boxes to be given out to local food banks – which comes to 21,875 meals total, or 725 meals per volunteer. Their efforts saved the Food Bank $1,375 by not having to hire workers to do the sorting.

After the fun educational lesson, the students enjoyed showing off their healthy smiles and shaking hands with these gentlemen. The Fantastic Teeth Fan Club provides free prevent tooth decay kits to first graders in school districts nominated by a local Masonic Lodge. With the help of Texas Masons, we were able to provide kits to 53,704 children across the state last year! The program is sponsored by Masonic Home and School of Texas
(MHS). According to Oral Health In America: A Report of the Surgeon General, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease—five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever. Poor children are affected by this epidemic more frequently than other children, with nearly 12 times more restrictedactivity days due to dental issues than children from higher-income families. With more than 1.5 million Texas children living in poverty, there is a great need for this type of program. The problem directly affects success for children, with more than 51 million school hours lost each year to dental-related illness. Teachers have judged both

classroom performance and classroom behavior to be significantly poorer among children in need of dental care. Pain and suffering due to untreated dental disease can lead to problems in eating and speaking, as well as, learning. In addition, overall health of the child can be affected by dental problems. The dental care kits contain: • Toothbrush and toothpaste • Healthy teeth sticker • 2 minute timer (correct time to brush teeth) • Pamphlet describing MHS services • Dental floss • Dental health brochure in English & Spanish For more information, visit the website at www. mhstx.org or call 817-5031500.
Help grads transition into adulthood (StatePoint) Transitioning from high school to the next life stage can be a time of excitement for young people, but it can also be a time filled with uncertainty. Whether one is off to college, entering the workforce, or starting another big adventure, he or she may need extra emotional support at first. Experts say that parents and caregivers can play a big role in ensuring the transition is a success. “Whenever your child is going through a major life change, it’s important to consider his or her mental health and general wellbeing,” says Dr. Thomas K. McInerny, President of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). With that in mind, the AAP is offering the following tips for parents and youth navigating this important time of life: • If your child is going to college, make sure he or she is familiar with the health and mental health support services on campus. • If your child has a mental health diagnosis, such as ADHD or depression, be sure to ask the college staff what kind of medical infor-
mation they will need related to your child and how to set up prescription refills if needed. Talk to the college about special housing and academic accommodations, if necessary. • Contact your child’s pediatrician, who can be a good source of advice. In addition to ensuring your graduate has had all the vaccines and other preventive health care recommended for this stage of life, your pediatrician can also help you prepare the way for your young adult’s continuing mental and emotional health. • Once your child is settled into his or her new routine, keep in close contact and try to get frequent readings about how he or she is doing academically and socially. While you can’t stand sentinel outside the dorm room, you can remain supportive from a distance. • Is your child entering the workforce? Even if he or she is remaining at home for a time, life will still change dramatically. Be sure to give your son or daughter extra space as a young adult, but offer help navigating new responsibilities, such as paying bills and managing health care responsibilities.

• Once a teen graduates and leaves home, alcohol, drugs and sexual activity may become much more accessible. Making poor choices can have lifechanging results. Continue to have conversations about peer pressure, good decisions and consequences. • As always, stay connected and be attuned to the warning signs of depression and other mental health issues. Look for “red flags,” such as excessive sleeping, excessive moodiness, obsessive body-image concerns and personality shifts. • When it’s time to “graduate” to an adult doctor, your pediatrician can arrange for the transition to care by an adult health care provider. More health tips can be found at www.HealthyChildren.org. Parenthood doesn’t end when your child turns 18. By offering emotional support, you can make the transition from high school to the next life stage a smooth one.

Diboll downs Hudson again; Hargrave next Last week, Diboll baseball coach Edd Trotter talked about his team’s goals. “Our goal each year is to get to the playoffs. If we win a district championship then we win it; but, winning a district championship doesn’t always get you to Austin, and that is the goal,” Trotter said, responding to questions about facing Hudson in the regional quarterfinals. Hudson defeated the Lumberjacks twice during district play and was District 20-3A champions. However, for the second time in three years, Diboll advanced in the playoffs with a victory over Hudson – this one 3-0 on Friday at Angelina College. The Lumberjacks now face the Huffman-Hargrave Falcons in a three-game series at Adam Dunn Field in New Caney. Game 1 is at 7 p.m. Friday, May 24. Game 2 will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, followed by Game 3, if nec-
essary, 30 minutes later. Against Hudson, Diboll scored its three runs in the fifth inning. With one out, Sergio Castillo singled. With two outs, Isaac Hernandez drew a walk. Tony Hernandez then hit a single that plated Castillo with what would be the game-winning run. Isaac Hernandez scored on a wild pitch, and Eric DeJesus singled to score Tony Hernandez. DeJesus pitched Diboll to victory, tossing a completegame, two-hitter. He struck out two, but also walked two and hit three batters. One of the walks and two hit-batters loaded the bases for Hudson in the final inning. However, DeJesus coaxed a groundout to end the game. Huffman defeated Bridge City 5-4 in comeback fashion to advance. Bridge City led 4-0 through more than half the game.
