“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.” — Herman Melville

Julie Klammer (right) and Sandy Norwood share a moment after they meet for the first time since a lung transplant in January. Klammer’s daughter, Mylie Ferguson, died Jan. 23, and, a few days later, surgeons transplanted the youth’s lungs into Norwood, who was critically ill. The two exchanged letters and emails before meeting for the first time Aug. 17. STAFF PHOTO BY CONNIE SWINNEY

Mother of Marble Falls teen killed in car accident receives solace through lives her daughter saved with organ donations BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

after a car accident. A few weeks ago, when she hugged Sandy Norwood, 70, there was a part of Mylie in that embrace. On Jan. 20, Julie’s phone rang. The voice See TRANSPLANTS / Page 3

‘Dinosaur George’ brings traveling prehistoric show to Marble Falls

BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — When George Blasing was a kid, he fell in love with dinosaurs, which is now fortunate for millions of other children. “You know how everybody goes through those phases,” Blasing said. “Well, I never grew out of my dinosaur phase.” Blasing, a self-taught paleontologist with more than 35 years of study under his belt, goes by the name “Dinosaur George.” And with good reason. Blasing developed a traveling exhibit called “Museum in the Classroom,” which brings a museum-worthy display to communities with no natural history program. See MARBLE FALLS / Page 5

TELL ’EM YOU SAW IT IN THE PICAYUNE

SEPTEMBER 4, 2013

Transplants saved six lives, including 10-year-old boy, volunteer firefighter FROM PAGE 1 on the other line shattered her world. Your daughter has been in an accident, the voice told her. The mother wondered, “How could that be?” Mylie was supposed to be at a friend’s house, not riding around in somebody’s pick-up truck. Before heading out the door for University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, Julie grabbed a suitcase and filled it with some of Mylie’s clothes. “I thought she’d be coming home with me,” Julie said. When she arrived at the hospital and saw her daughter, Julie knew Mylie wasn’t ever coming home again. Or, so she thought.

SANDY’S STORY

About 90 miles to the south, Sandy lay in the hospital attached to a ventilator that was acting as her lungs. Three years before, Sandy underwent a complete lung transplant after a genetic disease roared into her life. The transplant was successful, and Sandy recovered. Typically, if a person’s transplant remains good after one year, they’re in the clear. But after three years, Sandy’s body began rejecting the transplanted lungs. Her only hope was another transplant. On Jan. 14, a Monday, Sandy’s daughter, Joyce Durst, noticed her mother didn’t look well. She suggested they leave Sandy’s Cedar Park home and drive to San Antonio to see the transplant specialist the next morning. “Driving to San Antonio took a lot out of me,” Sandy said. “So we’d usually drive down the afternoon before, get a hotel and then go to the doctor the next morning.” They agreed on the same plan. When Joyce checked on her mother Tuesday morning, Sandy was unresponsive. The daughter called 9-1-1, and emergency crews took her mother to the hospital. A triage doctor broke the bad news to mother and daughter. Sandy’s lungs were failing. If she wanted to live, she had to go on a ventilator. “But if I went on the ventilator, I would come off the (organ donation) waiting list,” Sandy said. “Generally, it’s harder for somebody on a ventilator to recover from a transplant.” Except Sandy wasn’t just “somebody.” Her daughter called the transplant physician, who told Sandy to

MYLIE FERGUSON get on the ventilator and he would be on his way. As expected though, Sandy’s name was scratched from the list. Thanks to a good transplant review team, one that knew Sandy’s doggedness and stubbornness, the members unanimously voted 24 hours later to put her back on the list. And then, the wait resumed.

MYLIE’S LEGACY

Mylie died Jan. 23. Nothing can truly comfort a parent when a child dies. But before Mylie passed away, Julie and her ex-husband and Mylie’s father, Todd Ferguson, were walking up some stairs. He mentioned somebody had approached him about donating Mylie’s organs. “I had never thought of that,” Julie said. “But when Todd told me that, it was like this weight just lifted. We had to do it.” So Mylie’s parents agreed to donate their child’s organs and other tissues. Back in San Antonio, as Mylie’s family and friends grieved, another family celebrated.

Mylie’s lungs were a perfect match for Sandy. On Jan. 24, Sandy underwent her second lung transplant. Julie wasn’t aware of Sandy’s life as she sat in the Marble Falls High School auditorium Jan. 26 for her daughter’s memorial ceremony. She grieved over the loss of her daughter. The teenager had so much for which to live. So many people’s lives to touch. During the service, six of Mylie’s classmates shared stories about the teenager and how her life impacted theirs. “I never realized, until those six girls stood up there, how much Mylie meant to everybody,” Julie said. “She really had made a difference in people’s lives.” But Mylie’s impact wasn’t over. In some ways, it was just beginning.

SANDY AND JULIE

As part of the transplant process, the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance maintains a high degree of confidentiality on donors and recipients. But they do give donor families and recipients a way to contact each other, if they want to. “As soon as I got home, I wrote a thank-you letter to my donor family,” Sandy said. The letter went to TOSA, where the staff forwarded it to Mylie’s family. Without identifying information, Sandy knew nothing about her donor other than she was female. She didn’t even know to whom in

her donor’s family she’s writing. Julie wrote a letter as well. At one point, TOSA staff asked Julie if she would ever meet her daughter’s lungs recipient if she got the chance. Julie jumped at the opportunity. Sandy agreed as well. The two set a date and time, Saturday, Aug. 17, around noon. “I really wasn’t sure what to expect,” Sandy said. “You know that this person you’re about to meet lost somebody they loved.” The two met on a sunny, summer day. They spent about four hours sharing stories, talking about Mylie, learning about each other and drying a few tears.

SIX LIVES SAVED

Mylie’s heart beats in the chest of 10-year-old boy who is in full recovery. Her right kidney went to another 10-year-old boy. Her left kidney and a part of her liver went to a 55-year-old man. Another part of her liver went to a 53-year-old woman. And doctors transplanted Mylie’s pancreas into a 28-year-old Indiana volunteer firefighter. The transplant would allow the man to continue working toward becoming an EMT. Six people directly benefitted from Mylie’s organs. But her impact doesn’t stop there. Sandy explained that Mylie’s other tissue could help between 100 and 150 other people. And then, there are Mylie’s corneas. If transplanted, one cornea will

go to one person and the other to a second, meaning two people have the chance to see again. Sandy understands she is alive because somebody else died. She honors Mylie and her first donor by living every day to the fullest. Each day Sandy gets up, she makes the decision to be happy as a way to honor Mylie. With Julie’s and Sandy’s newfound friendship comes another way to honor Mylie. They are planning to team up to promote organ donation. “Can you imagine how much effect having the mother of the donor there and the person who got (the daughter’s) lungs would have on people,” Julie said. “I really think that’s something we’re going to do.” While the joy of knowing her daughter’s organs and tissues have benefitted the lives of numerous other people, Julie misses Mylie. Her house isn’t quite the same without the bubbly, goofy teenage girl. While Julie feels a void in her house, she knows her daughter lives on — both spiritually and, in some ways, physically. She smiled. “I got to hug the woman who is breathing with Mylie’s lungs,” Julie said. “She may not not be with me, but her heart is still beating; her lungs are still breathing.” Go to www.txorgansharing.org for more information on organ and tissue donation. daniel@thepicayune.com

“It’s a display that would be the envy of most public museums,” Blasing said. If you don’t believe him, you can find out for yourself Sept. 10-11 when he transforms Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista Drive, into the biggest dinosaur museum around. He and his staff will put up more than 150 exhibits. The exhibition is free and runs 9 a.m.-7 p.m. both days. The Marble Falls Public Library is sponsoring the event. Eileen Smith of the library said the facility hosted a Science Rocks event last year to help get kids excited about science. When the library began looking for another exhibit to bring to the community this year, Smith said Dinosaur George was a natural. “He came last summer (2012) as part of our summer reading program, and the kids just loved him,” Smith said. “And not just the kids, but the parents and grandparents thought he put on a wonderful program.” The exhibit is a self-guided tour, but Dinosaur George and staff will be there to answer questions. Blasing said his motivation for the exhibit and his educational programs is to open children to a world beyond what they typically see and experience. “There are two basic reasons I do this. First is to expose children who may never get to see a museum to something like this. And the other is to encourage kids to look at the world from a bigger perspective than just their backyard. I want to encourage them to see that there are so many opportunities out there waiting for them if they just go and look.” Along with his exhibits, Blasing co-created, wrote and hosted the 12-part series “Jurassic Fight Club” on The History Channel. Despite the TV success and other accolades, one of Blasing’s greatest

Marble Falls (0-1) looks to bounce back against Smithville after loss BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Sports

MARBLE FALLS — Most players and coaches say the best remedy for a loss is to play another game and get a win. Therefore, Sept. 6 can’t come soon enough for the Marble Falls High School football team (0-1), which welcomes the Smithville Tigers (0-1) at 7:30 p.m. to Mustang Stadium, 2101 Mustang Drive. Marble Falls lost to La Grange 49-23 on Aug. 30, while the Tigers

back to Smithville in 2012, when the Tigers’ power running game propelled them to victory. They also capitalized on Mustang mistakes. Marble Falls head coach Todd Dodge said, in 2012, his players weren’t mentally ready to play on the road. “It was a lack of focus, which is my fault,” he said. “Some kids coming back from last year will be very excited to get back to work. We’re very excited to have our home opener and have our home crowd to load up Mustang Stadium.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

fell to Lampasas 47-6. Tigers player Khalil McCathern scored his team’s only points on a 10-yard run. He finished with 16 carries for 176 yards. Meanwhile, the Mustangs will attempt to bounce back from their loss to La Grange. Leopards running back Rodney Filmore ran for about 180 yards unofficially during a contest in which La Grange never trailed. Marble Falls comitted four personal fouls, suffered three turnovers and battled cramps during the contest. In some ways, the loss to the Leopards shared parallels to the set-

BURNET — The Burnet High School football team plays its home opener against Rockdale on Sept. 6. The Bulldogs (1-0) face an opponent with one player already heading for a Bowl Championship Series team. Rockdale senior linebacker James David committed to Baylor during the summer. Last year, James led the Tigers with 118 tackles, even though he suffered a knee injury late in the regular season. And Rockdale senior offensive lineman Josh Pelzel, who is coming back from a knee injury, is generating interest from many Division I-A programs. Just like last year, both teams

enter this contest after winning their season openers. The Bulldogs defeated Fredericksburg 40-27, while Rockdale beat Salado 47-21 on Aug. 30. The Tigers led their game 27-7 after the first quarter and never looked back. “Rockdale is athletic and well coached,” Burnet head coach Kurt Jones said. “They had a big Week 1 win against Salado and will be a tough opponent in our home opener.” Against Fredericksburg, Burnet rolled to a 27-7 lead before the Billies added a touchdown just before the half. The Billies trimmed the lead to 33-27 and had a chance at tying the game, but Burnet senior linebacker Everardo Medrano got an interception.

Seconds later, Bulldogs junior receiver Cody Jones caught a 30-yard pass from senior quarterback Derek Jones to put the game away. Last season against Rockdale, the Bulldogs fought back from a 17-3 halftime deficit by recovering an onside kick to start the third quarter and scoring on that possession. A second onside kick was later attempted but failed. The Tigers defense had three interceptions during their contest against Salado with the last one coming with 23 seconds remaining in the game. The Sept. 6 game is 7:30 p.m. at Bulldog Field, 1000 The Green Mile. jfierro@thepicayune.com

Faith (1-0) welcomes St. Anthony FROM STAFF REPORTS MARBLE FALLS — The Faith Academy football team added to its perfect regular season record in 11-man football thanks to a 34-14 victory against Austin St. Dominic Savio on Aug. 30. The Flames are now 11-0 in the regular season. This week, the Flames (1-0) welcome the team that started that streak: St. Anthony of San Antonio. The game is 7:30 p.m. Sept. 6 at Pony Stadium at Marble Falls Middle School, 1511 Pony Circle. Last season, Faith began 11-man football and unveiled the single-wing

formation. It featured a quarterback who looked to run first after the offensive line shifted before the ball was snapped. St. Anthony was unsure of how to defend the offense, which led to a 16-8 victory for Faith. In all, St. Anthony also was unsure of how to defend the two-point conversions as the Flames lined up with space between linemen instead of side by side. The Yellowjackets are coming to Marble Falls with a 47-6 win against San Antonio Brooks Academy. St. Anthony scored 47 points in 36 minutes behind 146 rushing yards and 143 passing yards.

Llano (0-1) hosts Bangs BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Sports

LLANO — Last season’s victory against Bangs did so much more for the Llano High School football team than just put a slash in the win column. The victory ended a nine-game losing skid that started in 2011. And just like 2012, the Yellowjackets (0-1) are coming off a loss to Wimberley 31-14. Llano welcomes Bangs on Sept. 6 with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. “We are hungry for a win,” Llano head coach Craig Slaughter said. “I know I am.” Bangs lost 61-33 to Clyde on Aug. 30. Slaughter said the Dragons feature plenty of talented players, including senior J.T. Newton. He lines up at quarterback, free safety and punter. “The Newton kid in Bangs is really solid,” Slaughter said.

Bangs finished 2012 with a 9-4 record and reached the Class 2 Division I regional semifinals. Slaughter said he is looking for more from the Yellowjackets this week. Against Wimberley, Llano took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when junior receiver Jalen Bauman caught a 75-yard pass from senior quarterback Layton Rabb for a touchdown. But the Texans responded by scoring 28 unanswered points with 22 coming in the second quarter. In all, Wimberley had 382 yards of total offense and got another touchdown when Stephen Gonzales ran an interception 16 yards to the end zone. The Yellowjackets rushed 15 times for negative-5 yards, but Rabb completed 19 passes for 293 yards. “We have to play much more physical and execute better,” Slaughter said. “Need to get (senior running back) Carter Tatsch loose and in space more.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

Henry Sanchez had 7 carries for 82 yards. Meanwhile, the Flames and St. Dominic Savio were scoreless in the first quarter. That changed when Faith sophomore running back Asa Ortiz ran 71 yards to pay dirt. Then, junior running back Royale Brown scored on a 15-yard scamper and later a 17-yard run for a 21-7 halftime lead. Other Flames scores included one from sophomore running back Jacob Metcalf from eight yards out, and a shuttle pass from junior Hanner Shipley to senior Austin Ellis. St. Dominic added a touchdown run in the final 64 seconds. jfierro@thepicayune.com

have youth activities, basketball and things like that. Ours is just a Western heritage way of reaching out to our young people.” The nearly three-year-old cowboy church is opening its new arena to riders in need of practice. The practices will feature two classes of bulls — junior and open — and will start at 6 p.m. Sept. 10 and 24 and Oct. 8 and 22. There will be a devotional each night. The arena is less than a mile north of Texas 29 on RR 1431. “It gives (the riders) an opportunity to get on bulls,” Barington said. “If they’re committed to this sport, they have a hard time trying to find a place to practice. We thought this would give them an opportunity twice a month to come and improve their skills.” Barington said some riders practice on 55-gallon drums. “They can get on it and practice, but a barrel is nothing true to a bull,” Barington said. The practices are free and open to anyone looking to ride or just watch. Riders must sign liability releases, and minors must have a parent or guardian sign as well. Barington said the church includes more than 150 members and draws about 200 people to Sunday services. It currently operates in a large tent. “When the Lord tells us it’s time,” Barington said of the cowboy church’s prospects of getting a permanent building. “A lot of cowboy churches start in a tent.” Go to www.crossandspurscowboychurch.com or call Jim Cowen at (713) 492-0146 for more information. jared@thepicayune.com

Trail ride offers look at historic Burnet County ranch, helps family crisis center BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — Trailer riders can explore a historic Burnet County ranch Sept. 14 while also supporting an organization that offers a safe haven for families in crisis. The “Saddle Up for Safer Families” trail ride will be held at the JB Johanson Ranch, located west of Burnet on Texas 29. The event, which includes two trail rides, a chuck-wagon lunch and a silent auction, benefits the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center. The center, located in Marble Falls, provides an emergency shelter and rape crisis center for victims of domestic abuse. It also offers a 24-hour crisis hot line. “The Highland Lakes Crisis Center is such an important program,” said Pat Moore, an organizer of the trail ride and a crisis center board member. “It helps so many people who are in need of help. It’s been doing that for 30 years.” The center provides emergency food, clothing and transportation as

well as shelter. Officials said when a victim flees her or his residence, the person typically only has time to grab a few things. The center holds a golf tournament as well as runs a thrift store for support. But when Moore and Glenna Bell Orman became involved, the two thought it would be a good idea to hold a fundraiser to attract people who didn’t golf or shop in the thrift store. “We wanted to give the crisis center an opportunity to reach out to a different part of the population,” Moore said. The event features two rides: a twohour morning ride and a three-hour afternoon ride. Both rides are covered in the $50 registration fee. Riders must bring proof of a negative Coggins test for their horse in order to participate. For more information or to register, call Moore at (830) 598-1587 or Orman at (830) 265-7085. Go to www.hlfcc.org for more information on the crisis center. daniel@thepicayune.com

Camp Peniel wants you to ‘Meet Your Maker’ BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

SMITHWICK — When people hit the trails for Camp Peniel’s Meet Your Maker off-road adventure race Oct. 6, competitors may feel a little confused that they have to start off with their running shoes on. “Most events like this start off with swimming,” said Ben Weagant of Camp Peniel and the race coordinator. “But, if I put everybody in the swimming at the start, it would really crowd people up.” Camp Peniel’s lake, after all, is more like an oversized pond. So Weagant starts off the Meet Your Maker race with the two-mile run to spread the field out a bit. After the quick run, the competitors will plunge into the small lake at Camp Peniel and enjoy a brisk 200meter swim. Once out of the water, it’s off on a nice six-mile mountain-bike ride around the camp. But, before racing for the finish line, camp officials will hit racers with another two-mile run. Among all this running, swimming and mountain biking, race organizers have thrown in several mystery events. “The mystery events will remain a mystery until the actual race,” Weagant said. Camp Peniel is a Christian-based camp located east of Marble Falls at 6176 RR 1431. During the summer, youth participate in resident and day camps. During the off-season months, the camp offers family weekends. And this year, they’re adding adventure racing to the program. The course offers competitors, especially on the mountain-bike

Central Texas Hay Show is Oct. 17; samples due Sept. 5 The Central Texas Hay Show for hay producers in Burnet, Lampasas and Llano counties is Oct. 17. The event is at the Burnet County Fair Barn on the fairgrounds, 1301 Houston Clinton Drive in Burnet. The program starts at 1 p.m. and ends with a barbecue, awards and an auction at 6:30 p.m. Producers can receive a free

portion, some challenging geography. But Weagant pointed out it’s not so tough that only the hardiest of competitors can take part. “I think anybody who has done much running and biking can do it,” he said. “On the mountain-bike portion, some of it is very challenging. But it’s a very short distance, and you can walk your bike.” Kyle Grieser, a Marble Falls athlete who regularly competes in Xterra off-road triathlons, has traversed the mountain-bike course. Weagant said even he’s found it challenging. Still, it’s doable. People who want to give it a go, but don’t think they can complete all the portions, can tap a friend for a stretch. The race allows for individual competitors as well as teams of up to three people. There is no minimum age requirement, so a family could compete as a team or challenge each other as individuals. It’s also a great opportunity for families to train together in preparation for the event. Registration continues up to the event, but people who sign up before Sept. 6 pay $45 and are assured a T-shirt. After Sept. 6, the registration goes up to $55, and there is no guarantee of a T-shirt. Packet pick up is 3-6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the camp or 7-8:15 a.m. Oct. 6. The race orientation is 8:15 a.m. Oct. 6 with the competition starting at 9 a.m. A half-course race follows at 9:30 a.m. “And, after the race, we’ll have a free kids fun run (1k),” Weagant said. Go to www.camppeniel.org or email Weagant at bweagant@camppeniel.org for more information. daniel@thepicayune.com protein analysis of hay produced this past year. A sample bale of hay must be delivered to the fairgrounds by Sept. 5. To make delivery arrangements, call Burnet County extension agent Wade Hibler at (512) 756-5463.

Spicewood VFD-EMS destroys the competition for a good cause BY CONNIE SWINNEY Picayune Staff

SPICEWOOD — Spicewood volunteer firefighter Brian Crawford loves smashing into cars, not just because he can but also for the difference he makes by doing it. “I’m focused on all those drivers when I’m out there. When I see them coming at me, I’m getting out of the way and then getting back at them,” said Crawford, who has been with the Spicewood Volunteer Fire DepartmentEMS for nearly two years. “The best way I can describe it is an adrenaline rush. It’s just fun.” He’s not talking about when he’s driving to work or even a fire call, but Crawford is describing how he’ll handle the 21st annual Spicewood VFD/ EMS Destruction Derby on Sept. 7 Crawford is one of two volunteers with the department entered in the smash-’em-up thrill ride. But many more competitors also are registered for the derby. Each year, the event — the department’s biggest fundraiser of the year — generates about $20,000 for the all-volunteer agency, according to EMS Director Patsy Lester. “It comes at a good time when donations have slowed down,” she said. “It

IF YOU GO WHAT: 21st annual Spicewood VFD/EMS Destruction Derby WHEN: Sept. 7 with gates opening at 4 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m. WHERE: Spicewood Fire Hall, 9805 Texas 71 East

really is an event we depend on. It gives the guys and girls a chance to build up their cars and let off some steam out there.” The derby, which attracts thousands of spectators, starts at 6 p.m. at the Spicewood Fire Hall, 9805 Texas 71 East. The department is located across from the CR 413 intersection. The gates open at 4 p.m. Concessions include food and drinks as well as T-shirts and ball caps. The event features three classes: fullsize, compact and ladies. Competitors also find a second life in the consolation bracket. “We try to keep it family-friendly because it’s something kids love to watch,” Lester said. For participants like Crawford, the event is a family affair as well. Of the two cars he has entered and has prepared for competition, his aunt Jeannie Hodde of Temple will drive a fortified 1983 Cadillac in the ladies

category. Crawford will drive a 1979 Lincoln Town Car in the men’s large car category. “You get your bell rung every now and then,” he said, using a metaphor for knocking one’s head around. “We’ve got good cars this year. They’re solid. You want a good solid car, not too rusty.”

The rules are simple. No more than two minutes must pass between each collision with the other cars in the arena during a certain period of time. In his fourth year as a participant, Crawford said he welcomes the competition and the chance to delight the crowd.

“Kids love it,” he said. “We’ll have a blast. I guarantee.” To become a participant, find out more about the rules or volunteer opportunities at the destruction derby, go to www.spicewoodvfd.com. Also, contact Lester at (512) 755-0001. connie@thepicayune.com

Beth Moore program gives boost to Highland Lakes Pregnancy Center BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — Highland Lakes women can enjoy a motivational and inspirational day with Beth Moore on Sept. 14, all while helping a group of women facing unknown futures. Hill Country Fellowship Church, 200 Houston Clinton Drive, is hosting the Beth Moore Living Proof Live simulcast 8 a.m.-3:15 p.m. The cost is $20 per person with proceeds going to the Highland Lakes Pregnancy Resource Center in Kingsland. The center provides peer counseling, pregnancy testing, material assistance, educational information and community referrals.

Moore is an internationally known Christian speaker and author. She conducts Living Proof Live programs across the country and around the world. She’ll actually be in Charleston, W.Va., on Sept. 14, but, thanks to technology, Highland Lakes women only need to drive to Burnet to enjoy the day-long seminar and program. “She’s a very exciting storyteller,” said Joan Blalock of the pregnancy center. “She puts on a dynamic presentation. Even though it goes all day, she does such a tremendous job that you don’t even realize you’ve been there the whole time. It’s a great women’s retreat.” Blalock said the actual topic of Moore’s program isn’t usually revealed until the event. But, Blalock added, it’s always something from which women can learn and be inspired. The pregnancy center, 226 Nob Hill in Kingsland, serves as a place women with questions about pregnancy can go for answers and support. Often, the

women, and even girls, head to the center because they have no place to go. “They come in with all sorts of circumstances,” Blalock said. “Some are single. Some have husbands. We try to provide emotional support for them no matter what their circumstances.” The center’s peer counselors help the women with those circumstances. Blalock said it sometimes means assisting them with the adoption process or setting up Medicaid and the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) supplemental nutrition program. The resource center offered sonogram services up until recently when the equipment broke. Blalock said women often will come in contemplating termination of an unborn child (the HLPRC doesn’t offer abortion services) but, upon seeing the sonograms, change their minds. “Oh, that happens a lot,” she said. “So replacing our sonogram machine is important.” In other cases, center counselors and staff try to connect women with other community resources for further assistance. Everything is confidential, Blalock added. The goal of the center is just to help and love each woman who walks through the doors. Go to http://hlpregnancycenter.org for more information on the center and its services. Tickets for the Beth Moore simulcast can be purchased at the Hill Country Fellowship Church; the Highland Lakes Pregnancy Center; Calvary’s Road Christian Books, 510 U.S. 281 in Marble Falls; and Fuel Coffee House, 106 E.

Jake Hooker and The Outsiders will get crowd on the dance floor at Summer Music Series BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

BURNET — Though Jake Hooker decided to slow down a little in 2013, he’s still coming to Burnet to end the Summer Music Series. And he’s bringing The Outsiders with him. Jake Hooker and The Outsiders will be at Burnet’s Haley Nelson Park amphitheater, located off Texas 29 West, at 8 p.m. Sept. 7 to close out the Summer Music Series. The series is sponsored by KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune, The Picayune, Double Eagle Entertainment and the city of Burnet. “We’ve had a great summer,” said Double Eagle Entertainment producer Damon Beierle. “A lot of people have discovered the amphitheater as a concert venue and dance venue.” If people were unsure about the dance part of the venue, they’ll be convinced when they hear Hooker and The Outsiders, Beierle said. He compared them to Bob Wills and His Texas PICAYUNE CONTEST

Playboys. “They will fill the dance floor,” he said. This year, Jake’s father, Tommy Hooker, joined The Outsides for several shows. Both Hookers team up for some duets and harmony vocals. When Jake Hooker was a child, his father led a country band in East Texas. The son absorbed enough by age 7 to join the group. By 14, Jake Hooker was singing and playing in his own band. The younger Hooker studied music theory at South Plains College in Levelland and was influenced by county music legends Ray Price, Johnny Bush and Darrell McCall. Jake Hooker’s albums include “One Man World,” “Lost Along the Way,” “The Outside,” “Faded Lights,” “You Had a Call” and three live albums. Beierle said Jake Hooker and The Outsiders have a loyal following. People from around the area have called to reserve tables near the dance floor, the producer said. In all, he anticipates having no more than 12 tables.

generally need to start taking withdrawals from your traditional IRA and 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored plan. If you don’t need all this money to help support your retirement lifestyle, consider putting some of it in a college savings vehicle. Several options are available, but one popular choice is a 529 plan. With a 529 plan, any potential earnings accumulate tax free, provided they are used for

qualified higher education expenses. (Keep in mind, though, that 529 plan distributions not used for qualified expenses may be subject to federal and state income tax and a 10% IRS penalty.) By putting any “excess” amounts from your retirement accounts to work for your grandchildren, you’ll be giving them the gift of education that could last a lifetime.

Mah jongg tournament, silent auction raising money for nature center BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MEADOWLAKES— An ancient Chinese game that arrived in the United States in the 1920s is coming to the aid of the Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center.

The second annual mah jongg tournament is Oct. 15 at the Hidden Falls Golf Club restaurant, 220 Meadowlakes Drive. Last year, the competition drew about 45 players. “We raised around $3,000 for the center,” said Carol Parker, a tournament organizer and mah jongg player.

“We also have a silent auction along with the tournament to help out the nature center.” The Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center at Reveille Peak Ranch, located west of Burnet off FM 2341 at 105 CR 114, was created to help people gain an understanding and appreciation of the outdoors and natural resources. The center provides educational and outreach opportunities for people of all ages. The plan includes for the center to have teaching collections and classrooms as well as interpretive trails that wind through the 1,300-acre ranch. Parker said the idea for the fundraiser came about when Bill Hutson, one of the visionaries behind the nature center, decided to learn how to play mah jongg. As Hutson began to learn the game, somebody suggested a mah jongg tournament as a benefit for the nature center, Parker said. Mah jonng dates to the Confucius era of China. It’s a game played with tiles but has the feel of a card game. “We play an American version, which is a lot different than the Chinese game,” Parker said. “It came to the States in the 1920s, and, in 1937, the National Mah Jongg League formed.” Under the American version, the league annually sends out a “card” that outlines the hands competitors can use for the year. The game is played with tiles instead of playing cards, but it has been described as

“rummy like.” “We can only make those hands that appear on the ‘card,’” Parker said. While the game might be generally unknown, mah jongg has a big following. The national league started with only 32 members, but that number has increased to more than 350,000. “There are tournaments that happen all the time,” Parker said. “I’m amazed at the number of people in the area who play mah jongg. You can go out every week and find people playing it.” People interested in competing in
