Street repairs on right path RICHARD NELSON

editor@dibollfreepress.com

Diboll motorists will be thrilled to hear City Council members have called a workshop later this month to discuss what streets will get a facelift. Diboll golfers will be even more thrilled to hear reconstruction on Neches Pines golf cart paths could begin as soon as Wednesday,

July 10. Council awarded the bid for the project to Foster Paving of Lufkin during the Monday, July 11, meeting. The $92,137 project is funded through the Keeler Grant Program and could be concluded by the end of the month. Phase I was reconstruction of Lumberjack Drive and cost about $1.3 million, leaving about $1.2 million

for Phase II. However, bids came in more than $100,000 over that amount. So, council members will meet at 5:15 p.m. Monday, July 29, to discuss which streets get the makeover. The streets being considered are South First Street; Elm Street; Beech Street; Cross Street; O’Hara Street; Pine Valley Road; C Street; B Street; 3rd Street; 2nd Street; Hines Street; MLK;

OC Scott; Cypress; Lynn; Justice Clark; and Arrington. Council also tabled a decision on awarding a bid for Old Orchard Park restroom reconstruction, another project courtesy of a Keeler Grant. In other business, council members amended the alcohol policy at the Lottie and Arthur Temple Civic Center. The new policy requires facility renters to contract with

Pilot, passenger OK after emergency landing

Diboll residents as well as residents from surrounding communities enjoyed the free concert presented by Genesis, a drum and bugle corps from The Valley. Genesis was in Diboll for a little over a week, staying and practicing at Diboll High School. The band played several numbers from the various productions of “The Wizard of Oz.” The band leaders thanked the crowd at Lumberjack Stadium for its attendance. Diboll Civic Club members have discussed among themselves the chance to get the band back next year.

A pilot and a teen escaped injury when the pilot had to make an emergency landing in a field off FM 1818 near Diboll on Wednesday afternoon, July 3. The 51-year-old pilot was flying from Brazoria County to the Angelina County Airport in a single-engine plane when the plane suffered a mechanical problem. Angelina County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Public Safety officers found the two after about an hour of searching the wooded area.

DPD encourages citizens to be aware of distress scam

The Diboll Police Department has received complaints about a swindle involving family members in distress or need. The perpetrators seem to know various details about their intended victims and the victim’s family. This is possibly done by gathering information through public

information searches and social media. In the cases reported to the Diboll Police Department, the perpetrator contacts the intended victim and claims to be a relative. The perpetrator tells the victim they have been arrested or detained and they need the victim to send money to

help them. Another person will then contact the victim pretending to be a bail bondsman, an attorney, or a lawenforcement official, the person then gives the victim details on how much money to send and where. In the cases reported to the Diboll Police Depart-

ment, the victims were instructed to send money by Western Union to a location in South America. After receiving the money, the perpetrator would contact the victim again and try to extort more money, by claiming more fees, fines or possible charges for the release of the family member.

This is not normally how business is conducted by law enforcement and if citizens should receive such a call, they should be suspicious. Some questions to ask would be what law-enforcement agency are they with, where are they located, and a contact phone See SCAMS, P. 8

First Bank & Trust celebrates 60 years this summer

What started as Diboll State Bank, which opened with deposits of less than $825,000, has now evolved into First Bank & Trust East

Diboll man dies in fiery car wreck

A Diboll man died Friday morning, July 5, as he lost control of his car and struck a tree off Pine Valley Road, just inside Ryan’s Lake Hunting Club Shortly before the wreck, the Diboll Police Department received a call from a city employee about a reckless driver in that area. After the he Buick LeSabre hit the tree it burst into flames, and Deon Lamont Lackland, 39, was killed, according to a report by David Flowers, a Department of Public Safety trooper. Diboll Volunteer Fire Department responded and put out the fire. Lackland’s body was found in the back seat, causing investigators to surmise he was trying to escape the burning vehicle.

SPJST, 30th anniversary dance, with music by Glenn Lenderman and Friends will be Friday, July 19, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the SPJST Lodge, 197 Hughes Road, which is the old skating rink, in Fuller Springs.

Do you know someone who wants, and will, care for you all the time no matter what the circumstances? Jesus Christ will if you will let Him. In 1 Peter 5: 6-7 it says, “Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” Jesus Christ knows all you are going through and struggling with in your life. You were not meant to go through life’s struggles alone. Jesus can help you with everything. No matter what you have done or what you’re mixed up in Jesus can give you a new start. He is the only one who can. Jesus loves you and wants to take care of you forever. All you have to do is accept all He has done for you through His life, death and resurrection. Jesus is new life for you. -- Bro. Kenny Hibbs, First Baptist Church

Jan Wilkerson surprised at ‘Music on Square’ Jan Wilkerson’s birthday is not until July 16, but she and her husband, Burlon, decided to celebrate a little early by traveling to Brenham this past weekend to attend “Music on the Square.” Jan’s birthday this year is a major one that ends in “0.” Her children thought it needed to be a very special celebration so they decided to travel to Brenham and SURPRISE her. Burlon said she never knew what was happening and was totally surprised when all three children and their families sat down behind them in the streets of Brenham during the show. Traveling from San Antonio was daughter Krista, her husband Shaun Canfield and son, Nick. Driving from Marquez was daughter Melanie, her husband Greg Blakeslee and their 9-month-old daughter, Neely. Son Trey had already planned a short vacation to Houston with his family during the holiday weekend but made arrangements for he and Michele, Annabeth and Ryan to drive on to Brenham. They all arrived about the same time, walked in together and tapped their mother on the shoulder and saw the surprise on her face. Just think, now Jan can have another celebration on her real birthday but bet it won’t top that one. Happy ?0 birthday Jan!! My thanks to Burlon Wikerson for sharing about Jan’s birthday and by the way, he’s counting down the days to his retirement, less than 45 days! *** What a pleasant surprise to see Ulmer McMullen sitting at the round table. In the late m’50s “Coach” McMullen taught junior high eighth-grade history and government in addition to his coaching duties at DISD. I learned he was born in Nancy, a logging camp near Zavalla, and his dad worked for Angelina County Lumber Company. In the summer of 1957, he worked at Diboll’s new radio station, KSPL, with

Tommy Lanyon, DeeDee Camp, Don Wier, Murphy Martin and others. He remembers that Arthur Temple Jr. always requested to hear Pete Fountain. In the summer of 1961 he was hired by a TV station in Sherman as a “weatherman.” He said back then TV was still new and there were no qualifications to be a weatherman. He retired from working in television in 1991 and bought two radio stations in Navasota and eventually moved to College Station where he and his wife Sylvia live. Sylvia is an educational consultant and was working with DISD that day and left Coach McMullen visiting at the table with several that contributed fond memories from Diboll, including Don Wier (KSPL’s “Cat Walk”), Buddy Temple, Joe Paul Stovall, Bo Smith, John Ralph and myself. It was great to see him; he truly has not aged or gained a pound. *** Mike Lawrence stopped by from Bossier City, La., one day at closing time in hopes of “catching up” with former players on his baseball teams when he lived in Lufkin in the mid m’50s. He played for the Cubs in Little League and for the Cardinals in Pony League. He remembered playing with Bobby Ramsey, Buddy Temple, John Zeagler, David Brevell, Butch Tidwell, Joe Poland and John Ralph. *** Lucy Rector has been in a couple of times lately and shared that her mother, Pauline Graham, who is 86, has her own

garden behind her house and has corn, tomatoes, okra and has harvested potatoes and an 11-pound cabbage! She tills her own garden, mows her yard and drives wherever she wants. *** Andrew Bass and Michael MuGuire have raised some beautiful tomatoes this year and Ginger and Kenneth Capps have shared excess okra with us. Marian Abner, a frequent visitor at the RT, made the statement he would love to have some old fashioned “Okra Patties.” Andrea made that wish come true with the abundance of okra and tomatoes. It’s a good thing she made plenty because someone quit counting after Mr. Abner had eaten 12!! Oh! They were ever so good. Andrea uses Chester Treadway’s recipe from years ago when he was our feed salesman. He was known all over Angelina County for his delicious homemade pies and would usually bring us one every Monday morning. What a good cook and great guy! *** Ralph Wilson, ag teacher at Barbers Hill, stopped by to visit while his son, Rhett, was exhibiting a Braham at the State and National Braham Show that was recently held in Lufkin. This week Rhett and thousands of other FFA members are attending the State FFA Convention in Dallas where Rhett is in the running for State FFA president. Diboll FFA members attending the convention are: Chloe Presnall, Tyler Allen, Stephen Badeaux, Caleb Stuart, Sara Smith and Cheyenne Swor. *** Taking advantage of the holidays and buying fishing licenses to do a little fishing were: Philip and April Richards and Teresa and Louis Randolph. Jack and Millicent Irish came by after having a delicious ham-

burger at the airport. They were on their way to Shreveport and bought some of our gourmet peaches and also wanted to try some of Willie P. Richardson’s Catfish Bait that we now sell. Troy Russell bought peaches, hot chow chow and pickled carrots. *** If you want to help someone and feel better yourself, there are some folks in Corrigan working hard to raise money that will benefit 28-year-old Justin Grimes, great-grandson of Earlene Grimes from Beulah and grandson of Judy and Freddie Lee Grimes. Justin has been approved for a lung transplant and the money will go toward his medical expenses. On Saturday, July 13, at Brookshire Brothers in Corrigan, volunteers will be cooking and serving $7 plates of fried fish beginning at 10 a.m. At the same time, a softball tournament will be going on beginning at noon. If you would like to enter, it’s $150 per team. Contact Tiffany Reed 936-671-2191 or Susan Grimes at 512-626-7670. Donations are always accepted and there is a bank account (#1120751258) set up for Justin Grimes at Bancorp South on Brentwood in Lufkin and above all, remember him and his family in prayer. *** A brief note posted on Facebook by Rita Howard that her dad, Howard Hutto, passed away Tuesday morning and details of his service will be at Gipson’s. Please remember Rita and “Boots” in your prayers. *** Don’t forget to come see us … ’round the table. Sandra Pouland, owner of Pouland’s Real Estate, contributes this column.

About 29 kids were running and sliding as fast as they could go and 13 adults standing by to watch over them. It’s been a good summer and we are so proud of the kids that participated in our reading club. *** It was Craft Day for the teens & tweens on Tuesday, July 2. Everyone enjoyed making worry stones, the smooth rocks that you rub when you are worried. There were many different designs and everyone took several home for themselves and some to share. *** Congratulations to Gloria Purser and Fernanda Montoya – this week’s winners in the adult and teen Summer Reading Club drawings!

Caraway continues family 4-H tradition Corrine Caraway, daughter of Anita and Chris Caraway and granddaughter of JoAnn and Charles Arnold, attended the June District 5 4-H Leadership Lab and was elected president of District 5 4-H. This puts her on the State 4-H Council, and she will be going to Brownwood for training. It was 25 years ago that her Uncle Chuck Arnold was on the State 4-H Council. Anita made district council, but never state. There will be awards ceremonies later in the fall. Corrine set her goal in June 2012 to be an officer since this will be her 10th year in 4-H, and she is a senior at Lufkin High School.

Long visit akin to being kin Brother Bud Davis, who retired recently from pasturing one of the Pentecostal churches in Lufkin, and I were in Loper’s Family Pharmacy and discussed folks we both knew. I asked if he knew Horace McCoy, who has been a Pentecostal preacher for years and is one of my first cousins. He referred to Horace as B.H., recalling several things Horace had done in his early life that I had forgotten. Always when I think of Horace and my uncles, Cletus Russell and Leslie Denman, it is to think of them being home on furlough after they were drafted when World War II began and I was about a year old. They proudly wore their uniforms and each had a picture taken holding me. Beamon says he does not understand why too many young people today do not want to wear their uniform to show their service to the United States. Anyway, Brother Davis and I talked about the late Sammie and Ruby Denman, who were my uncle and aunt, and their talented daughters, the late Arlene Denman Anderson and Verona Denman Harris. Both could play musical instruments and sang beautifully with their mother, Ruby. They sang old-time gospel music, which I am partial to. Before I left we also talked about the late Douglas Russell, who was my cousin. Brother Davis declared if we talked much longer we might end up kinfolks. You never know in East Texas. *** For years Ben and Berta Brock Love lived on past us until he passed away and now Mrs. Love has died. She was 90 years old, was a 60-year member of the Huntington Chapter of the Orde of Eastern Star (Chapter 938), where she served as Worthy Matron. She was also a longtime member of Huntington Methodist Church, was a rock hound, loved to fish and loved to crochet in her spare time. Mrs. Love is survived by her son, Memphis Crawford; granddaughter, Laura Leonard, and husband, Lawrence; great-granddaughter, Gillian Leonard; brother, Robert E. Brock, and wife, Annette; sis-

Preceding her in death were husband, Ben Love; parents, Johnie Calhoun and Evie Brown Brock; and daughterin-law, Sylvia Crawford. *** There has probably been more mowing done in yards this year than in the past two years together. Of course, if we don’t get rain all the grass around here will begin to look terrible and the mowing will stop. Those who make a living tending to yards have really stayed busy of late. I think of folks in other places in our country and we have been blessed with just the right amount of rain. *** So many times I hear folks refer to our local Dollar General store as Bill’s Dollar Store, which was the first dollar store we had on Main Street. That old one has been gone a long time, but I met one of the ladies who worked in the old store. Her name is Sue; I cannot recall her last name, but she said she reads my column in the paper. I appreciate all my readers. It had been so long since I had seen Larry Arnold that I almost did not know him as he was coming into the grocery store. *** My sister, Christal Shaw, was in Arlington to see her son, Neal Shaw, and his family. He, Carrie, Colleen and Walker are like so many young families where one or more of the children play ball. Recently 7-year-old Walker was chosen to throw out the first ball at one of the Texas Rangers games. Walker looks much younger and when the man stepped up to catch the ball he asked Walker if he wanted to step up much closer to home plate. Walker was most likely insulted and declared REAL pitchers throw from the pitcher’s mound. The guy I’m sure was surprised to see how hard the ball was thrown by the little player.

Beware of Phone Scam

As electric bills rise because of summer temperatures, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative is warning their members of a reported a scam involving prepaid money cards. “The scammers are calling Cooperative mem-

bers and claiming to be Sam Houston Electric Cooperative employees,” Keith Stapleton, Sam Houston EC chief communications officer, said. The members reported that the caller told them that their account was delinquent and they needed to pay immediately or their electricity would be turned off that day at 5:00pm. The caller then told the members to load the money on a prepaid money card and call him back with the money card’s number. Sam Houston EC asks that any member who receives a suspicious call immediately report it to the Cooperative by calling 1-800-458-0381. “If anyone claiming to a Co-op employee calls and asks you for personal information, you can hang up and call our office directly. That way, you’ll know you’re speaking with a Co-op representative,” Stapleton said.

There’s nothing like home-made Part 1: Start with a cow

The July Fourth celebration always brings a barrage of parades and flags amidst the seas of colorful red, white and blue clothing. It also brings forth the over- indulgence of good food. Most of the food is toasted, charred and burned on hot fires until someone announces that it is done. Some of it is boiled or baked. Last, but certainly not least of all, is the spread of enticing desserts. When I think of picnics and backyard barbecues, I always remember the sweet creamy flavor of home-made ice cream. For me, just plain old vanilla is best. A little milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla stirred in a humming mixer filled with ice and ice cream salt is very hard to beat. Some say it is even better than a home-baked cobbler. Others say, just dump it on top and eat them both. I can go either way. The last time that I made such a delectable dessert was when we had our own cow. Now that is “starting from scratch.” Even getting the cow was an adventure. We had bought a small farm that had a nice big barn, but no livestock. I woke up one summer morning and decided that it was time to start building our menagerie of animals. The farm was bought mainly for the education of our children on the real things of life that make a difference in what kind of people we are. We believed that farm families were definitely pillars of their community and thus we began our adventure of “farming.” I gathered my two children into my car and invited my mother to go along. I had read about baby calves that were on sale for $10.00 each. I couldn’t believe how economical that sounded. So, off we went to buy a calf. I was taken to a pen to see the calves. They were all so cute that I couldn’t decide between them. I kept thinking, “a real live calf

for only $10.00 a piece.” Priding myself on making such a great business beginning, I told the man that I would take five of them. He said, “Where is your truck?” I clearly didn’t have a truck. “Don’t let him stop you now,” I thought. “Well, I have a very large trunk on my car. They are such little calves. Could you put them in there?” I asked. I ignored the smirk on his face and was determined to look very sure of myself. After a few minutes of my standing fast with my money in my hand, he shook his head and said, ”well, I guess they could be tied and bagged in burlap.” “How far did you say that you lived?” “Oh, just a little way down the road,” I answered. If he thought I was going to admit that it was over twenty miles, he had another thing coming. “It might be a good idea to tie the trunk instead of closing it,” I said, as the calves little heads stuck out and looked at me in desperation. When we left the large farm gate and started our slow trek home, we became a one car parade for everyone that passed and stared. I thought, “hasn’t anyone ever seen calves in a trunk before?” Our journey was filled with sudden bumps from the back, stops to check, retying the bags, and the issuing of assuring words to our new farm animals that all would be well soon. We laughed and talked about our adventure. The kids couldn’t wait to tell their dad. I was absolutely sure that life on our farm was going to be all that I had expected it to be. I was very smug about my business dealings. We now had five calves. “What a great beginning!” I thought. More next week…. Sue Hendrick lived in Diboll for several years. Although she now resides in Lufkin, Diboll will always be her East Texas home.

Lots of fireworks in Austin If you enjoy fireworks like I do then this week in Austin was a real treat. However, all the fireworks happened inside the building! This Monday marked the beginning of the second called special session of the 83rd Legislature. Special sessions can only be called by the Governor and are usually called to resolve unfinished business. This week marks the 4th special session I have served since being elected to the Senate.

Protesters galore

On Monday thousands of protesters arrived at the Capitol to show their support or opposition to SB 1, a pro-life bill. The gathering was so big that additional security was necessary and called to the Capitol from various parts of the state. The unofficial head count by the Department of Public Safety was 3,000. The protest drew attention from both national media and the Daily Show. There was chanting, singing, prayer circles, and dueling news conferences throughout the day. The protests were loud yet peaceful and those in the Capitol maintained decorum. Regardless of your position on the subject, it is awesome and inspiring to see democracy in action and citizens engage their elected officials in this process. The bill will be heard in the House of Representatives this week and will be heard in the

Another chance for transportation funding

Lost in the shuffle of last week’s events was an opportunity to identify new transportation revenue for the first time in over a decade. My bill on transportation funding did not pass during the first special session due to a filibuster on another piece of legislation. However, within minutes of a second special session being called I filed SJR 1, a constitutional amendment that would dedicate 50 percent of all general revenue currently transferred to the Economic Stabilization Fund (ESF) to the state highway fund. According to estimates from the Comptroller’s office, SJR 1 could deposit as much as $900 million a year into the state highway fund. That number will grow over time. This bill passed unanimously out of the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday July 2nd. I am hopeful the measure will pass both chambers before the clock runs out this time.

Criminal justice bill revisited

Another bill that ran out of time during the first special session was a complicated is-

sue dealing with the sentencing of 17-year olds, In June 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama that life without the possibility of parole is unconstitutional for juvenile defendants, and defined a minor as being less than 18-yearsold. Because Texas had been sentencing 17-year-olds as adults, this meant the state was out of compliance with the court’s ruling. In order to comply with this Supreme Court ruling, Texas must pass legislation to treat 17-year-olds as minors rather than adults, and give them the same mandatory punishments as 14 to 16-year-olds. The bill is expected to advance quickly with little resistance.

Redistricting reprieve rejected

If you recall last week the US Supreme Court, in Shelby County vs. Holder, struck down a central section of the Voting Rights Act essentially allowing Texas and eight other states to alter their own election laws as they want, rather than having those laws first “pre-cleared” by the U.S. Department of Justice. As a result of this ruling, and in conjunction with Governor Perry approving legisla-

tively drawn maps last week, the Attorney General’s office petitioned the three judge federal panel in San Antonio to end the litigation over the maps drawn in 2011. The judges ultimately rejected this request. The result is litigants will have to appear again later this year for a reexamination of arguments by the court. This might impact the date of spring primary elections. And so the saga continues….

Beat the heat and come for a visit

Looking for a way to avoid the summer heat, grab some AC and learn about Texas history this summer? Come visit your state Capitol! An extraordinary building by any measure, the 1888 Texas Capitol is the largest in gross square footage of all state capitols and is second in total size only to the National Capitol in Washington, D.C. However, the Texas Capitol surpasses the National Capitol in height, rising almost 15 feet above its Washington counterpart! Don’t forget to stop by your state Senate office for a visit. It’s your office after all; you just let me work there!

We should be a shining light in our neighborhoods Baby, our 2.8 pound Chihuahua, was acting very lethargic. Normally she is buzzing around at a mile a minute, but she was listless. She looked scraggly and even had a rattling in her chest. Of course, we immediately took her to Dr. Lindsey Syler, who said that she was wormy. We got some meds, an antibiotic, and a shot, and Baby quickly looked better. The reason that I am mentioning this diagnosis is because some of us suffer from the same things as Baby. Worms! Yes, I did say that! Worms! It is not what we are eating, but what is eating us that is

Teacher Mom with

Jan Allbritton the problem. Some of us have the greed worm in us. We allow it to eat at us and let it destroy relationships so that we can have stuff like money, gold, and diamonds, and just stuff. We are willing to cheat our siblings out of their fair share of the estate all in the name of greed. We are willing to make almost any deal if we can make more money.

The worm of greed eats at us and turns us into King Midas clones. We may have once been a nice guy or woman, but we allowed greed to eat away our sense of what is right or wrong. The worm of lust can eat at us also. Not just sexual lust or pornography, but lust of food, or anything that we carry to excess. We may not drink beer or hard liquor, but we eat enough that would kill a cow. We may think that our lust is not as bad as the alcoholic or druggie, but lust is lust. The worm will destroy us if we allow it to. Now, unforgiveness or bitterness, that worm is a bitter, nasty

one. It will eat at your insides until you are a shell of a man, or a woman. Somehow, that worm etches its mark on your face and your personality. Those around you know that worm is in you without you saying a word. Of course, if you did speak, it would not be sweet words, but harsh, angry, bitter ones. Everybody in life has hurts and pains and scars even if they grow up in a good home. How we respond to those aches and hurts show whether we let the worms in to eat us or not.

We can choose to not have worms by taking deworming medicine. That medicine will cause you to get rid of those worms. They have to leave your body. Praise God! You can get a prescription for that deworming medicine. It is actually offered to you for free. You just have to ask Jesus into your life. You ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and you ask Him to come in and heal your hurts. You give Him all the hurts that have come into your life, and let Him put your heart back together again.

Christians should be preparing for Christ’s return “Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vultures flying high in the sky: “Come! Gather together for the great banquet God has prepared.” - Revelation 19:17. Preparations – Yes, that is what Tina and I have been doing for a while now. Tina and her family left on a week’s long vacation so there was LOTS to prepare for. She packed toys, movies, clothes, activities, more clothes, blankets and other security items to keep her family “happy, happy” on their long road trip. Tina has also been making many preparations for our upcoming Vacation Bible School. She has made schedules, change schedules, recruited helpers, signed up children, rented

arenas and be a light on a hill in our neighborhood. We are to shine where ever we go. Shine in the darkness so that others have hope. Shine in the darkness so that others may come to know Jesus just because you were willing to shine. Jan Allbritton is a Diboll resident who teaches at St. Cyprian’s Episcopal School.
