Where there’s smoke, there’s a learning opportunity for kids at annual fire program BY CONNIE SWINNEY Picayune Staff

M A R B L E FA L L S — Dousing the flames of a burning car made Kevin Carpenter think twice about what he wants to be when he grows up. “I can see how it can be a

dangerous job and how you can get hurt very easily, but it looks like a fun process,” said Carpenter, a participant in the Fire Camp for Kids, which occurred the second week in June. “I’ve been thinking about going into the medical field, and now I kind of think

I might want to go into this.” Carpenter was one of a dozen Marble Falls Middle School incoming eighth-grade students in the weeklong camp at the Marble Falls Fire Rescue facility and a city-leased pasture on Shifflett Ranch. See YOUTH / Page 3

Fish fry and auction to benefit old Castell School restoration BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

CASTELL — It has been 65 years since students studied their lessons in the old Castell School on the Llano River, but the building and the memories remain well preserved.

However, any wooden building constructed in 1926 — and expanded in 1929 — is going to need regular attention and upkeep. Castell School supporters realized this and decided to do something to protect the venerable facility. The restoration project that See AUCTION / Page 4

Youth were trained in wound treatment, CPR FROM PAGE 1 “We’re trying to enlighten them,” Marble Falls Fire Rescue firefighter Ken Schwake said. “We’re trying to reach out to the students in the community and give them a chance to see what fire service is like.” The program includes instruction and hands-on demonstrations on cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and wound treatment as well as summer, fire and lake safety. Other agencies who participated in the program were Marble Falls Area EMS and Marble Falls Air Evac EMS.

“A lot of these kids have lived here all their lives,” Schwake said. “They see this as a community, where they want to help out and contribute back where they grew up.” The camp’s highlights culminated with the final day on Shifflet Ranch during which teams of campers took several turns dousing a burning car using a fire hose. “Putting out the fire was pretty easy, but trying to move towards the fire was very intense,” Carpenter said. “You could feel the heat burning against your body. It felt really, really hot. You felt very close up to the action. It felt unreal.” connie@thepicayune.com

Organizers also will present tips on preserving produce FROM PAGE 1 without a bit of help and support. The Highland Lakes Master Gardener Association wants to get everybody eating healthier and is organizing “Growing a Healthy Harvest — Season to Season” on June 22 at The Helping Center of Marble Falls’ community garden, 1315 Broadway, to arm folks with the knowledge to grow some of their own good food. It doesn’t stop there. The Master Gardeners have lined up several people to show attendees how to fix their fresh produce for delicious dining. “We’re trying to improve the nutrition of the community,” Wilkens said. “We’re trying to improve it by multiple approaches with the main two being: No. 1, growing healthy, and No. 2, eating healthy.” The event starts at 8:30 a.m. with a tour of the community garden followed by the “Healthy Harvest” presentation at 9 a.m. Patty Leander, a contributing writer to Texas Gardener magazine and a Texas Master Gardener vegetable specialist, will lead the conversation. She’ll outline ideas and tips for year-round vegetable gardening for the Highland Lakes. At 10:30 a.m., Burnet County AgriLIFE Extension specialist Linda Wells and other Master Gardeners

will hold a question-and-answer session so people can dig a bit deeper into the topics. “We’ll also have several area chefs preparing food with (garden produce), so people can learn how easy it can be done,” Wilkens said. “People are going to be amazed at how many great dishes can be made from the garden.” People can even taste some of the dishes. Wells also will present ideas and tips on preserving produce. Beth Mortenson, a Highland Lakes Master Gardener vegetable specialist, said even if people plant a few vegetables in the future, it’s a step toward healthier living. And, hopefully, they’ll develop a love for producing their own food. “I hope people learn the joy and simplicity of growing your own food,” Mortenson said. “It’s very rewarding.” With many Americans developing health issues related to poor eating habits, Wilkens said planting a garden and eating the produce is a good way to break that cycle. “People can still take control of their own lives and health,” she said. It all starts with a little dirt and a few seeds. For more on the event or to help at the community garden, call Wilkens at (512) 789-3955. daniel@thepicayune.com

MARBLE FALLS — Judy Miller can’t imagine a Fourth of July without fireworks. That’s why four years ago, she spearheaded resurrecting the Marble Falls Community Fireworks. It hasn’t been easy raising the more than $20,000 each year to secure the fireworks display and other entertainment. But Miller, who owns Outback Unlimited in Marble Falls, does it as a labor of love. “I think celebrating the Fourth of July is incredibly important,” she said. “And you have to have the fireworks to do it right.” Recently, the Marble Falls City Council approved giving $10,000 to the community fireworks program. The funds come from a $1 donation city residents can make as part of their water bill. The money goes into a community fund that is dispensed at the council’s approval. The funding gave the Marble Falls Community Fireworks a big boost. Along with several corporate and business sponsors, Miller said the 2013 show is on strong legs. But, she added, there’s always room for more support. People interested in donating to the Marble Falls celebration can write a check to Marble Falls Community Fireworks and send it care of Judy Miller to P.O. Box 158, Marble Falls TX 78654. The donation is tax-deductible. “The Marble Falls Community Fireworks is a great way to build a family tradition,” Miller said. The event is July 4 at Lakeside Park on Buena Vista Drive. It starts at 4 p.m. with food and beverage vendors. Then there’s a line-up of live music starting at 5 p.m. with Tough Cookie, a youth cover band that performs songs from decades past. At 6 p.m., the Hill Country Band takes the stage at Lakeside Pavilion. “They’ve performed at every Marble Falls Community Fireworks the past four years,” Miller said. “They do a great patriotic montage of songs.” From 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Acoustic Duo, made up of Zeke Hamilton and Emily Cousins, performs. And then at 9:15 p.m. or dusk, the fireworks shoot into the sky above Lake Marble Falls. KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune will simulcast the fireworks music show.

Competitive shooter, MFHS graduate wins 4-H state title BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

VICTORIA — Katie Bridges will leave the Burnet County 4-H Club out on top. Bridges, who graduated June 1 from Marble Falls High School, captured the 2013 Texas 4-H Roundup Indoor Rifle Match championship with 641 points. Bridges said she thought about several things immediately after the victory, including her father, Michael, who died of cancer, and the fact she had just finished her time as a Burnet County 4-H member. “I was sad because I enjoyed (4-H),” she said. “I was happy I won. It’s the last 4-H match ever. It was bittersweet. (My father) probably would have been proud of me.” She earned a belt buckle as the state champion. Bridges finished second at district to reach the state competition. At the state event, she had to score in the top 10 of 109 shooters to advance to the final. Shooters took 20 shots in each position: prone, standing and kneeling. Bridges scored 565 out of a possible 600 points and took a 12-point lead into the final but had to wait three hours before it started. In the last round, the shooters got 10 shots. “We all go at the same time,” she said. “It’s a five-four-three-two-one start.” Competitors got 75 seconds to take each shot. During that short break, Bridges reminded herself to stay calm and concentrate. She edged runner-up Tyler Gardner of Austin County by seven points. Bridges will study geology at Texas Christian University in the fall and will be a walk-on for the women’s rifle team. The Horned Frogs won the NCAA championships in smallbore rifle and the bronze medal

Barbecue, beans and (maybe) chicken bingo aiding Wounded Warriors Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — Grab a roll of paper towels and get ready to dine on some meat as the fourth annual Marble Falls VFW Post 10376 BBQ Cook Off heats up June 22 at the post, 1001 Veterans Drive. “We’re doing a few things different this year,” said Mike Dyer, a member of the post. “I’ve been to a few chili cook-offs where I’d ask myself, ‘How did that chili win?’ Who hasn’t. So this year, we’ve added a ‘People’s Choice’ winner.” The barbecue features categories

IF YOU GO WHAT: Marble Falls VFW Post 10376 BBQ Cook Off WHEN: After 1 p.m. June 22 WHERE: VFW post, 1001 Veterans Drive in Marble Falls

for chicken, ribs, brisket, cobbler and beans. Along with lots of good food and fun, the barbecue benefits members of the armed services through the Wounded Warrior Project. Dyer said 100 percent of the proceeds from barbecue plate sales will go to the Wounded Warriors. The VFW also

will hold a 50-50 prize drawing in which half of the proceeds will go to a lucky ticket holder and the other half to the Wounded Warriors organization. “We thought it just made sense helping out the Wounded Warriors,” Dyer said. The Wounded Warrior Project is a program designed to help injured service members with awareness and direct services. For more, go to www. woundedwarriorproject.org. Dyer said the VFW also is working on organizing a chicken bingo (if you don’t know what it is, you have to see it) with a 50-50 split of proceeds

going to the winner and the Wounded Warrior Project. While the competitors will be busy starting in the morning cooking up all the delectable dishes, Dyer said the public might want to start arriving after 1 p.m. Judging for the chicken is 2 p.m. followed by ribs at 3 p.m. and brisket at 4 p.m.

Enjoy an Ultimate competition in Burnet for a good cause BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — While Chad Nelson has never played a game of Ultimate, he

didn’t let that stop him from organizing a tournament. “Yeah, it looks like it’s pretty tough for somebody my age,” said Nelson, who is in his 40s. “But the kids, they

love it. They go out two or three times a week (to Haley-Nelson Park) and play it.” Vertical Sports and Recreation Ministry teamed up with Mad Dawg Fitness in Burnet to host the flying disc tournament June 29 starting at 11 a.m. at Haley-Nelson Park, located on Garden Trails Drive off Texas 29. Nelson, who once worked as a church youth leader and then served in the capacity as a volunteer, thought an Ultimate tournament would be a great way to get people of all ages out on the fields for a day and also raise money for local mission projects. “All the proceeds are going to benefit several mission projects here in the community,” he said. Some of the organizations the ministry supports includes the Boys & Girls Club of the Highland Lakes and LaCare. “We’ve also adopted neighborhoods in the community and just went out and helped them.”

Ultimate, or Ultimate Frisbee, as it’s sometimes called, is a team sport in which competitors try to score on the opposing squad by catching the flying disc in the end zone. The players move down the field by passing the disc to open teammates. Once a person catches the disc, he or she must stop (though pivoting and turning is allowed) and throw it in less than 10 seconds. The game has a national association, USA Ultimate, and an international organization, the World Flying Disc Federation. In May, the International Olympic Committee granted the WFDF provisional IOC recognition. Though the sport is far from being an Olympic event, the recognition gives it a boost in further national and international development. But none of that really matters for the June 29 tournament. It’s about having fun. “We’re hoping to have 11 to 12

teams,” he said. “Regardless, we’re guaranteeing four games for each team.” If somebody is interested in playing or a few friends want to join up but don’t have enough for a complete squad, Nelson said not to worry. “We’ll put you on a team,” he said. “We want as many people as possible to come out and have a good time.” The event is open to players ages 14 and older. The cost is $100 per team or $10 per player. The Ultimate tournament is one of the events Vertical Sports and Recreation Ministry is holding this summer. Basketball and cheerleading clinics will be July 11-12 at R.J. Richey Elementary School in Burnet. For more information, contact Nelson at (325) 207-8076 or chad@ chadnelsononline.com or go to www. thewhatnowshow.com/vertical. daniel@thepicayune.com

My mouth runs away; now my body may follow in marathon BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

Brad Quinn makes no apologies about the difficulty of the 26.2-mile course for the inaugural Hill Country Marathon in Marble Falls this October. “It’s going to be challenging,” he said with a slight grin. The course starts at Mustang Stadium and takes runners to Mormon Mill Road without traversing RR 1431 or U.S. 281. But then, Quinn and his co-conspirator, Josue Stephens, send runners north on Mormon Mill Road/CR 340 before heading east on CR 341. “There’s a pretty good hill (on CR 341),” Quinn said. Runners hit the top of the hill, or thereabouts, and turn around and head back. At the intersection with CR 340, Quinn and Stephens give participants a choice. They can turn left and head back to the stadium for a half marathon or turn right and farther north on CR 340 for a full marathon. Either way, runners face a tough hill coming back on CR 340 to Marble Falls. There’s even a 10-kilometer race, but even those participants will have to take on the big hill just north of the Marble Falls city limits. “You can’t have a Hill Country marathon without some hills,” Quinn said. “What would it be then?” Well, easier for one thing. “You should do it,” Quinn said. He’s looking at me. There’s nobody else at the table. I try to change the subject, but Quinn can charm his way into people’s brains. After all, he and Stephens started up the Fuego y Aqua Ultras in Nicaragua. The event features distances of 25 kilometers, 50 kilometers and 100 kilometers. And yes, it’s a running race. They’ve even tossed a volcano into the mix. Stephens took it even further this year and added the Survival Run: Nicaragua, a 75-kilometer obstacle race. Participants haul logs, make their own shoes, carry a chicken and numerous other activities during the run. Only

two people finished it. People actually volunteer to participate in both events. So much so, the duo added U.S. versions this fall called the Hunter Gatherer Ultramarathon (50 or 100 kilometers) and Survival Run: Hunter Gatherer Obstacle Course Race (50 or 100 kilometers). Both events take place in Rocksprings, Texas. “Well, I was thinking of trying the half marathon,” I said before I could stop myself. Quinn promised to help me find a good training program. I add that I’ll track my progress through regular updates in The Picayune. Quinn thinks that’s a great idea. Somehow, my mouth just ran away before my brain and commonsense could stop it. Running isn’t something new to me. I’ve been avoiding it for quite some time. I did run cross county in junior high, but I was that slow kid who finished either last or pretty close to it. You know, the kid everybody (who was still standing near the finish line) called out encouragements to, such as, “Keep going,” “You’re doing great,” “You can do it.” But in the back of their minds they were thinking, “He should really find something else to do, like sit on the couch and watch TV.” The Hill Country Marathon is Oct. 20, so I have time to get ready. It’s not as if I’m starting completely out of shape, just darn close to it. Quinn, who also organizes and sponsors a series of night-time trail races called the Capt’n Karl’s, assured me it’s doable. This coming from a guy who regularly runs ultramarathons (think a marathon, then tack on an additional 10-70 miles). Sure it’s doable for him, though he admitted he’s not much of a road runner. Still, it’s for a good cause. The 10-kilometer, half marathon and full marathon will raise money for Serve Who Serve, a local organization that helps military families. There’s also the Phoenix Kids 1 Mile Fun Run, before the longer races, which will raise money for the Phoenix Center, a local nonprofit that provides mental health care and other services for Highland Lakes youth.

Wait, there’s a mile run. I quickly backtrack on the half marathon. A mile run, now that sounds very doable, even for me. Quinn said I could run the mile run, but as a warm-up for the half marathon. No mercy. He added a bit of advice. “For this marathon (and half marathon and 10k), I would definitely say you are going to need to do some heat work, and you’re going to have to work

on the hills,” Quinn said. Along with the runs, Quinn and Stephens are adding an artisan craft fair, food vendors and other things for family and people who aren’t competing (or in my case, just hoping to survive). It’s a family-fun event, Quinn assured me. I’m thinking about all the vultures I’ve seen while driving CR 340 between Marble Falls and Burnet. But there are some rewards for those who finish the race. Quinn is working

out the logistics of having a piece of Blue Bonnet Cafe pie waiting for everyone who crosses the finish line. Now, finally, I have a reason for running. For more information on the event, go to www.runthehillcountry.com.

LLANO — Sometimes, when elected leaders make a decision that rankles feathers, it takes those with the rankled feathers to make a difference. That’s exactly what a group of Llano County citizens did last year when they learned county commissioners slashed the library system’s budget. “The economic downturn really, really hurt Llano County,” said Pam Fowler, a member of the Llano County Library Foundation board. “Because of less taxes coming in, the commissioners cut the three libraries’ budget by 40 percent, and they said they’ll probably have to cut it again.” But instead of sitting around complaining, Fowler and a group of like-minded citizens decided to do something. Enter the foundation. “Public libraries are extremely important for the community, espe-

cially Llano County,” Fowler pointed out. “These are community centers.” On June 21, the foundation is hosting a street dance on Haynie Street in Llano (located at the south end of the Texas 16 bridge over the Llano River). The dance is 7-11 p.m. and features Western swing music performed by the Trainwreck Shipping Company Band. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate. Tickets may be purchased through the foundation’s website at www.llanocountylibrarysystem foundation.org. Fowler said this is just one step in creating a sustaining future for the Llano County libraries. With the advent of Internet and other technology, libraries still play a critical role in communities. Fowler pointed out many Llano County residents still don’t have reliable access to the Internet for a variety of reasons. The libraries offer the service to its

patrons. It’s not just about Internet access. The libraries offer numerous programs, especially for children and youth. Fowler said those programs provide children with a way to enhance their education. “We still have several pockets of poverty in Llano County,” Fowler said. “The library offers those children access to computers and programs that give them a better chance. We can’t just walk away from them.” While some people suggested closing the three libraries on Fridays and Saturdays as a cost-saving measure, Fowler pointed out those two days are popular for patron usage. Many of the special programs, from children’s events to gardening, are offered Fridays and Saturdays. The foundation is working alongside each of the branches’ Friends group. The battle to keep Llano County libraries open and operating goes deeper than simply having books on the shelves and offering programs. Fowler said a healthy, vibrant democracy depends on a knowledgeable public, and libraries provide a place for citizens to develop that knowledge. Libraries give readers access to books of various viewpoints and perspectives, Fowler said, so people can explore different sides and gather numerous sources before drawing their own conclusions. “There’s probably no other way to get that without public libraries,” Fowler said. “We can’t keep continuing governing ourselves without knowledge.” For more, go to www.llanocounty librarysystemfoundation.org. daniel@thepicayune.com
