Sept. 30, 1937-Sept. 17, 2013 First Baptist Church of Granite Shoals Pastor Randy Taylor (right) and Earl Broyles discuss the potential location of the re-created “brush harbor” structure first used by congregation members 50 years ago to conduct worship service in a pasture on Bel Aire Street in what was then the Sherwood Shores development and is now the city of Granite Shoals.

Nancy Collins’ life devoted to helping others find their way BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — The toughest thing about talking about Nancy Collins is stopping. “When I start talking about her and thinking about everything she did for me and for so many other people, I just could keep going,” said Barry Drake, her longtime friend. “She meant so much to so many people. Her life was a ministry of itself.”

FROM BRUSH TO GOLDEN CELEBRATION First Baptist Church of Granite Shoals to recount humble beginning under ‘brush harbor’ and years following during 50th anniversary event BY CONNIE SWINNEY Picayune Staff

GRANITE SHOALS — The members of First Baptist Church of Granite Shoals used little more than cedar poles, persimmon leaves and dried brush to erect their first worship center, known as a “brush harbor,” nearly 50 years ago in a pasture just off Bel Aire Street. “When we came up here in 1963, I came to the brush harbor,” said 96-year-old Evelyn Turner, a Granite Shoals resident. “It was nice to have a place I could stop and go to church for the Lord on a Sunday morning.” The so-called brush harbor was eventually replaced by a sanctuary, See CHURCH / Page 5

Night on the town to help children’s advocacy center BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — The Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center ’s “Diamonds are Forever, Childhood is Not” benefit gives community members the opportunity to have a good time while supporting children. The event on Sept. 28 at the Quail Point Lodge, 107 Twilight in Horseshoe Bay, includes cocktails, dinner, an auction, a casino and entertainment. While it’s a good time, Executive Director Ronda Hostetter said it provides support for the organization, which helps children who have been victimized or witnessed a violent crime. The advocacy center, located in Burnet, provides a safe, child-friendly place for interviews and examinations. A forensic interviewer conducts the interview, which is videotaped. By doing it in this manner, the child doesn’t need to undergo several interviews. “Before children advocacy centers, a child needed to be interviewed multiple times, often in scary places

to them,” Hostetter said. The constant reliving of the experience through the interviews just caused more pain and anguish for the child victim. Now, the forensic interviewer conducts the interview and videotapes it. “We provide those tapes to law enforcement and others who need copies,” Hostetter said. “This way, the child goes through one interview in a child-friendly environment.” The center feels more like a home than a sterile police office or other “formal” interview setting, so it’s not as scary for the child. The advocacy center serves children in eight counties. It relies heavily on donations and fundraisers such as the “Diamonds are Forever, Childhood is Not” for funding as well as building awareness of the program and the need for it. “We still have tickets available,” Hostetter said. Tickets for the event are $100 each. People also can make donations to the center. Go to www.hccac.org for more information or for tickets. daniel@thepicayune.com

Event brings in about $80,000 each year from visitors across the country FROM PAGE 1 Center, 401 E. Jackson St., on Sept. 28-29. T h e A u s t i n S t e a m Tr a i n Association and the city of Burnet bring the “very useful engine” to town for the fifth year for a day filled with Thomas stories, arts and crafts, and memorabilia. Tickets to ride the train with Thomas are on sale online at www. austinsteamtrain.org or by phone at (512) 477-8468. Some tickets are reserved on-site for walk-up purchase at the event. Crista Bromley, Burnet’s director of economic development, said each year’s event brings about $80,000 to the city from visitors. “Over the period they are here, it will bring in 20,000 people to the community,” Bromley said. “It puts people in our restaurants, stores and introduces a lot of people to our

Church is now located on Phillips Ranch Road FROM PAGE 1 a fellowship hall, offices and much more at the church’s current location, 505 S. Phillips Ranch Road. Prior to becoming the city of Granite Shoals, the area was known as the Sherwood Shores development. Turner is among hundreds of past and present congregation members scheduled to attend the 50th anniversary celebration of the church Sept. 29. Plans for the event include a display of a re-created brush harbor structure in the sanctuary, speakers, music and worship services. “The whole day is going to be about glorifying God. The significance of the brush harbor is a remembrance of where God has taken us and from that point,” the Rev. Randy Taylor said. “The original members have sacrificed so much to get us to the point that we are here. We will recognize them and remember their efforts.” Three of seven past pastors and the children of the founding pastor, Brother J.D. Benson, are expected to attend. “There is a very strong sense of family. The people are very united,” said Taylor, who has been with the church for four years. “We continue to put God first, and, with that, it has a big impact on the community.” Programs and activities over the years included establishing an Hispanic mission church and creating a comprehensive and educational children’s church program. Congregation member Louise Bumpass first attended the church in

Mustangs using bye week to work on fundamentals in preparation for district BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School football team is using its bye this week to return to fundamentals, head coach Todd Dodge said. And he believes it’s an important time to fine-tune those skills because the Mustangs (2-2) begin District 25-4A play against Cedar Park, the Class 4A Division II state champion, on Oct. 4. “Blocking, tackling, throwing and catching,” Dodge said. “Working their craft.” He said to expect to see a greater emphasis on improving cover skills, timing on routes and ball protection, things that help teams be successful. The Mustangs finished their pre-district schedule with a 59-37 loss to Boerne Champion on Sept. 20. The Chargers outscored Marble Falls 21-9 in the first quarter and took a 45-16 lead at the half. By then, Champion began substituting freely at running back. But once Marble Falls began to put points on the board, the Chargers inserted running back Travis Pospisl, who ran for more than 200 yards in the first half, back in the game. He finished with 305 yards on 24 carries. Champion generated 566 yard of total offense. Marble Falls sophomore quarterback Brennen Wooten was 20 of 36 for 331 yards and three touchdowns in the air and rushed 12 times for 85 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown run. Senior receiver Garrett Gray

A year ago, Marble Falls defeated the Chargers 62-55 and took a bye. Dodge said he remembers fans telling him they thought the open date came at a crucial time because the Mustangs had enjoyed great success. Former quarterback Mike Richardson had set a state record with 724 passing yards in the contest. “I don’t really believe all that,” Dodge said. While the players and coaches had aimed for four victories to start the season, Dodge said their other goals are obtainable. At the top of the the list are contending for the district title

and qualifying for the playoffs. “Our goals are in place,” he said. “There are six weeks left, and we want to win enough of those six. I still believe in our team. We have to get better. And we should be able to expect to do that.” Dodge said the district campaign will be a battle, one that will require much more from the Mustangs. “We have to grind and fight and get better,” he said. “You work your tails off as coaches and players. When you win, it’s high euphoria. We have a chance to be men right now. They’re good young men. We’re going to treat them like young men. We’re going to bow up and get better. That’s what has to happen.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

Burnet faces Taylor for homecoming BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

BURNET — It’s homecoming week for Burnet High School, and the football team faces an old foe. Taylor comes to town for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Bulldog Field, 1000 The Green Mile. The Ducks (1-3) and Bulldogs (3-1) have been in and out of the same district for the past decade. Taylor is led by junior quarterback Joseph Lopez, who has completed nine passes for 331 yards with 14 rushes for 96 yards. Senior running back Isaac Franco has 21 carries for 295 yards and a touchdown, while junior running back Devin Taylor has 25 rushes for 151 yards. Senior receiver Tim Bailey has two catches for 108 yards for the Ducks. “We want to go take care of our business,” Burnet head coach Kurt Jones said. “I think good things will happen.”

Homecoming activities are part of the week, and Jones acknowledged there are potential distractions. But, he added, he believes his players can put things in perspective. “We just have to be mentally mature and focused,” he said. The Bulldogs crushed Canyon Lake 34-7 on Sept. 20, avoiding a potential trap game, Jones said. Because of rainy weather, other contests were postponed or cancelled, and the Hawks entered the game looking for their first win of the season. “Our kids were solid,” Jones said.

“It took us a little bit to get going. They run a ball-controlled offense. Our kids hung in there.” Senior quarterback Derek Kiser completed 20 of 29 passes for 288 yards and four touchdowns. He hit three different receivers, who each caught a touchdown pass. Senior running back Trenton Hafley recorded 16 rushes for 71 yards. “We talked about trying to keep our focus,” Jones said. “I don’t think we were at our absolute best. But we kept our focus and came away with a victory.” The game against Taylor is Burnet’s last pre-district contest before a bye next week. The Bulldogs open district play at Brownwood on Oct. 4. “The pre-district schedule is about getting better week to week,” Jones said. “I feel like we’re doing that and moving in the right direction. I feel like we have a chance to get better.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

Llano looking to bounce back against Billies BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

LLANO — The Llano High School football team travels to Fredericksburg on Sept. 27 for only its second road game of the season. The Yellow Jackets (2-2) and the Billies (3-1) meet at 7:30 p.m. at Battlin’ Billie Stadium, 1107 Texas 16 South in Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg’s only loss was on Week 1 to Burnet, 40-27. Since then, the Billies have beaten San Antonio Memorial 57-14, Brady 34-6 and Lampasas, another member of District 8-3A along with Burnet and Llano, 24-7. “They are very solid,” Llano head coach Craig Slaughter said. “Good athletic quarterback. Multiple formations. Active defense. Very impressive team.” That quarterback is Kyle Grona, who has completed 40 of 80 passes for 594 yards and three touchdowns and three interceptions and has 49 rushes for 349 yards and seven touchdowns. Senior running back Paco Martinez is the top rusher with 67 carries for 351 yards and three touchdowns followed by senior running back Joaquin Rivera with 17 rushes for 144 yards and two touchdowns. Rivera also has nine catches for 107 yards. Junior receiver Brayden Beard leads the Fredericksburg receivers with six

High on Sept. 20. The Greyhounds recorded 160 yards on the ground and 115 yards in the air. But Llano couldn’t get its spread offense going. “We struggled offensively,” Slaughter said. “Just no consistency and did a poor job of sustaining drives.” Though it rained all day, the coach refused to use that as an excuse. “I’m sure it played a part,” he said. “But both teams played in the same conditions. We did a poor job blocking and executing.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

Faith aims to stay perfect against undefeated Schertz John Paul II BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

MARBLE FALLS — The Faith Academy and Schertz John Paul II football teams have more in common than their records. The two squads square off at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Judson Gray Complex on the high school campus, 9142 FM 78 in Converse. KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune will broadcast the game live. Entering the Sept. 27 contest, both teams are 4-0. But they’ve also defeated two of the same opponents: Austin Eastside Memorial and Austin St. Dominic Savio. And the Flames still have to face the other opponents John Paul II has defeated, Texas School for the Deaf and San Antonio Hawkins. But the similarities don’t end there. When Faith announced it would become an 11-man program in 2011, head coach Russ Roberts began studying squads that had recently transitioned from six-man football to 11-man. One of those programs was John Paul II. He said he has plenty in common with John Paul head coach Ed McCabe. “We look at our athletes, and we try to put together an offense and defense that suits the skills of our athletes,” he said. The Guardians made the move to 11-man no more than two years earlier than the Flames. John Paul is led by Miguel Ortega, who has 40 rushes

Faith Academy head football coach Russ Roberts talks with sophomore running back Asa Ortiz after the player broke free for a 51-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter against St. Mary’s Hall of San Antonio on Sept. 20. That score started Faith Academy on a 34-point unanswered run after falling behind 7-0. The Flames went on to win the game 34-14. COURTESY

for 260 yards, Adam Laskowski with 20 carries for 219 yards, Michael McCabe with 22 carries for 172 yards, and Jacob Bradley with 30 rushes for 139 yards. Each player has scored four touchdowns. Roberts said he thought there was a chance Faith and John Paul would be in the same district in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools. But that didn’t happen. The Flames go into this contest after a 34-14 win against St. Mary’s Hall of San Antonio. Trailing 7-0 after the first quarter, Faith scored 14 points in the second

and 20 in the third. Faith had three other touchdowns taken off the board because of penalties. Still, Roberts said his players simply wouldn’t be denied. Senior quarterback Austin Ellis had three passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns. One was to junior Hanner Shipley for 33 yards. Shipley’s only pass went for a 34-yard touchdown to junior Royale Brown. Brown added 15 carries for 105 yards. Sophomore Asa Ortiz had three rushes for 62 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown run. He also caught Ellis’ 14-yard pass for a touchdown. Ellis had 10 rushes for 104 yards that included a 55-yard scamper to the end zone. Roberts said his athletes played well in a contest that meant a lot to both squads. “They had circled our game back in two days,” he said. “They were not losing to Faith again, and they did. It’s nice to be the spoiler.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

TPWD offers 13 steps to catching 13-pound bass SPECIAL TO THE PICAYUNE ATHENS — Every year, Toyota ShareLunker program coordinator Juan Martinez talks to anglers still excited after landing a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass, and every year, almost all the stories are the same: The person never expected to catch a bass that size and was unprepared to deal with it. The ShareLunker season is Oct. 1-April 30. Go to www.tpwd.state. tx.us/sharelunker for more information about the annual program. ShareLunker entries are used in a selective breeding program at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens. Some of the offspring from these fish are restocked into the water body from which they were caught. Other ShareLunker offspring are stocked in public waters across the state in an attempt to increase the overall size and growth rate of largemouth bass in Texas. Here are 13 steps to take if you catch the big one: 1 . P r o g r a m t h e To y o t a ShareLunker numbers into your cell phone now. Voice mail is (903) 6810550; the pager number is (888) 7840600. Both are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the season. 2. Check your tackle and respool with fresh line, preferably braided. Big bass tend to hang out in the nastiest cover they can find and are quick to wrap your line around a tree. Chances are you are going to have to pull them out by brute strength. 3. If you do not have an oxygenation system installed in your livewell, get one. Instructions on how to do it yourself can be found at www.slideshare.net. Oxygenation is especially important during warm weather and tournaments when bass may be held for several hours. 4. Don’t have a livewell? You can use the information in Step 3 to rig a large ice chest. Bass do not respond well to being dragged across a lake on a stringer. Remember, a 13-pound bass will probably be at least 24 inches long. 5. Get a rubber net. These are much kinder to fish than nets with knotted construction. Abrasions make a fish more vulnerable to infections.

6. Get a scale and check its accuracy using a known weight. (A five-pound sack of flour or sugar and a gallon of water in a plastic grocery bag should weigh about 13.5 pounds.) 7. Review the procedure for handling and caring for big bass at www. tpwd.state.tx.us. 8. Know the locations of official ShareLunker weigh and holding stations. These places have certified scales for weighing your fish, a specially equipped tank for holding it and personnel who have been trained by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department fisheries biologists on how to care for big bass. 9. Expect to catch a lunker. Many lunkers are caught by people who just went fishing and did not expect to hook a trophy bass, and they didn’t have a net or didn’t fill their livewell or didn’t have a scale or know where to take a fish to have it weighed. Anytime you fish in Texas, you have a chance to catch a 13-pound or bigger bass. 10. Buy a fishing license and know the regulations for the body of water you fish. Some big bass have not been accepted into the ShareLunker program because they were not legally caught. The first thing a TPWD employee does when picking up a fish is check the condition of the fish. The second is to ask to see your fishing license. 11. It’s best to use a rubber net to land a fish, but if you must lip it, take care not to suspend the fish’s weight from its jaw. This can break the jaw and make it impossible for the fish to feed. Firmly grip the fish’s mouth with one hand and its tail with the other and handle it as little as possible to avoid damaging its protective slime coat. 12. Treat the fish with respect after catching it. Quickly take photos of yourself with the fish, and then, leave it alone. Don’t let others handle the fish and have their picture taken with it. It’s your fish. You want it to live to go back into the lake. 13. Go fishing.

Former Houston Oiler to help promote local FCA BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — The Fellowship of Christian AthletesHill Country is hosting a luncheon Sept. 26 at First United Methodist Church in Marble Falls, and a former Baylor standout and an ex-Houston Oiler will be sharing his story and testimony. The goal of the luncheon is to introduce people to FCA as well as, hopefully, create a local booster club for the organization. “This is not a fundraiser,” said Barney Sarver, the FCA area representative. “It’s really about letting people know what FCA is all about.” Cody Carlson set several records as the Baylor University quarterback before the Houston Oilers drafted him in 1987 during the third round. Carlson spent his seven-season career with the Oilers, serving as Warren Moon’s backup for many years before getting his shot after

Moon’s retirement. “He’s a great guy,” Sarver said. “He has an incredible testimony. He actually came to Christ through FCA while he was a student at Churchill High School in San Antonio.” FCA began in 1954. It helps promote Christ and Christian values through athletics, athletes and coaches. “FCA is an ecumenical ministry,” Sarver said. Sarver pointed out athletics are a major factor in the lives of many people, especially youth. “One of the most influential persons in a young athlete’s life is his or her coach,” Sarver said. “So we work with coaches to help them be more intentional in their coaching and influence. I tell the coaches I work with that they don’t have a job, they have a ministry.” The luncheon is 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the church, 1101 Bluebonnet Drive. Tickets are $10. For tickets, reservations or more information on FCA, call Sarver at (956) 821-8757. daniel@thepicayune.com

Despite the more than $50 billion that U.S. pharmaceutical companies have spent every year since the early 2000s on bringing new medications to market, drugmakers have barely improved on old standbys developed decades ago. The effectiveness of new drugs, as measured by comparing the response of patients on those treatments to those taking a placebo, has plummeted. In the late 1960s, drugs were on average 4.5 times (450 percent) as effective as a placebo. By the 2000s, drugs were reported to be just 36 percent better than a placebo. Fears of a crisis in drug innovation have grown over the years. In 2011, only 17 of the 984 drugs developed since 2001 were deemed “a real advance.” The Federal Drug Administration only considers the safety and efficacy of products and not the cost of the drug or whether it’s really needed. Unfortunately, “the way the drug regulatory system is set up, even if you have just a small advance, if you market it right, it can be very profitable,” said Dr. Aaron Kesselheim of Harvard Medical School. Atkins owns and operates Atkins Pharmacy Services, 701 Third St. and 2607 U.S. 281 North in Marble Falls. He can be reached at (830) 693-2972 or at www.atkinspharmacy.com.

TELL ’EM YOU SAW IT IN THE PICAYUNE

Collins always had home-cooked meal for difficult times FROM PAGE 1 that likely will go unfilled. For years, Collins was the first voice people heard when they called the Burnet County Courthouse in downtown Burnet. “Burnet Courthouse,” she answered. From there, Collins sent them to the person for whom they were looking. Or, if the caller wasn’t sure who he or she needed to talk to, Collins helped narrow it down to the right office or person. Sometimes, the caller sought a person or office that wasn’t in the courthouse or not even related to county business. A simple way of handling a call such as that would be saying, “Sorry, but I don’t know” and letting the caller try to sort it out on his or her own. Collins, however, wouldn’t hang up the phone without trying her hardest to help. Often, this meant pulling out her address book. She had long ago filled up the lines with numbers, names, addresses and other information. As she acquired new information and numbers, Collins scribbled it in along the sides or she stuffed pieces of paper in the book with contacts. The chances were, if somebody needed to find somebody, Collins could, and would, help. “She did so much more than just answer the phones,” Burnet County Judge Donna Klaeger said. “Anytime somebody needed help, Nancy was there. And it wasn’t just helping people who called or came by the courthouse. Nancy was so much more.” If somebody took ill or suffered

NANCY LOU KIRBY COLLINS

Nancy Lou Kirby Collins, 75, of Burnet died Sept. 17, 2013. She was born Sept. 30, 1937, in Lometa to Gaylian and Marqueritte Todd (Beasley) Kirby. A service was Sept. 21 at First Baptist Church in Burnet. A graveside service followed at Senterfitt Cemetery in Lometa. Arrangements by Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home, 306 Texas 29 East in Burnet, (512) 756-2222. Go to www.clementswilcoxburnet.com for condolences. a loss, Collins soon was at his or her door with some home-cooked food and a hug. It didn’t matter how small the problem or how large, Collins wanted to help. Even if all she could do was offer a hug. “Oh, those hugs,” Klaeger said with a laugh. “She gave big, strong bear hugs. Nancy hugged like a man. When she hugged you, she held on. You knew she cared.” Hugs weren’t the only thing Collins offered. And she wasn’t one to offer a little help. She went all out. When the 40th anniversary of Drake and his wife, Angie, approached, Collins and another woman decided to throw them a party. “Yeah, it was just a small party,” Drake said with a bit of laughter. “Seven hundred people showed up.

That’s Nancy.” But it wasn’t just an anniversary celebration. Drake suffers from post-polio syndrome after contracting the disease as a youth. The disease weakened his muscles to the point he relies on a wheelchair. During the course of the anniversary party, Collins helped raise $16,000 so Drake could purchase a specially fitted van to travel around better. “That was Nancy,” he said. In 2009, Drake’s wife passed away after battling cancer off and on for four years. And while many people shared their condolences and then moved on with their own lives, Collins made it one of her personal ministries to see him through the loss. Every Tuesday, the local Sonic sold two-for-one hamburgers. And every Tuesday, Collins and a few other women stopped at the Sonic, picked up a few burgers and headed to Drake’s house. “They would come by, and we’d talk, fellowship and just be together,” Drake said. “I don’t think I would have made it through that year had it not been for Nancy.” And after Drake remarried, his wife, Marie, faced some physical problems because of a low iron level. “So one day, Nancy shows up at our house with a dinner of liver and onions,” Drake said. “She said, ‘I don’t know this will help, but I thought it might.’ She was just that type of person. She didn’t love you a little, she loved you full on.” People came to know Collins’ cooking as well. Whether it was a plateful of brownies she made for a friend who stopped by the courthouse or her cinna-

mon rolls she baked for a co-worker’s birthday, Collins was ready to feed folks. It was one of her ways of demonstrating her love for others. And Collins always thought of others. She pushed her own problems and struggles aside to help friends, and even strangers, with their lives. “It was always about everybody else to Nancy,” Klaeger said. “It didn’t matter what was going on in her life, Nancy was always about helping you.” Even as she lay in her hospital bed, pain ravaging her body, Collins’ thoughts focused on somebody else. As Drake sat by her hospital bed, Collins struggled through the pain trying to tell him something. “She said, ‘I made you some trail mix, but I wasn’t able to get it to you,’” Drake said, his voice cracking a bit. “Even in her own pain, she was thinking of me.” While Collins might not have cured any diseases, traveled the globe or started a multimillion-dollar business, she showed people how just acting out of love could make life better, could make a difference. “Nobody can ever replace Nancy,” Klaeger said. “The courthouse will never be the same. But we’re all better for Nancy having been a part of our lives.” It’s been said that when a person dies, the headstone gives his or her date of birth and death, but between the two lies a dash. It’s what a person does during that dash that matters and defines him or her. In her dash, Collins packed a whole lot of love. daniel@thepicayune.com

Burnet-area band The Crossroads takes Because Experience independent path to true country sound Matters since 1935

BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — When Colt Buckelew left Nashville more than a decade ago and returned to the Burnet area, he set down his guitar for what he thought was the rest of his life. “I was done, I thought,” Buckelew said. As a teenager, he saw his future in country music, but a stint in Nashville burned down those dreams. Or, so he thought. When his wife, Nicole Cooper Buckelew, who’s stage name is Nicole Valentine, found herself with a guitar as a gift for completing her associate’s degree, she turned to Buckelew for a few lessons. “The original reason for taking up the guitar was I wanted something Colt and I could do as a couple,” she said. But as Colt started showing her the chords, the instrument almost came as second nature to her. “She took to it like a bug to water,” Colt said. As the couple began playing together, a little fire rekindled inside Colt. Those dreams Colt tossed aside years ago began to burn just a little bit. But this time, they weren’t Nashville dreams. As Nicole began to achieve performance-quality guitar skills, the two decided to give music another shot. They formed a country band called The Crossroads and began playing at venues scattered across the Highland Lakes. Along with Colt and Nicole, the band consists of drummer Gene Howison and lead guitarist Gary D. Curl.

The Crossroads consists of Buckelew, Nicole Buckelew (stage name Tiffany Valentine) and drummer Gene Howison as well as Gary D. Curl (not shown). COURTESY PHOTO While the band enjoys playing around the Highland Lakes, Colt and Nicole don’t look to the current Nashville scene as their aspirations. “You just don’t hear real country music coming out of Nashville anymore,” Nicole said. Colt, who has recording experience from his previous musical endeavors, agreed. His hope is The Crossroads gives listeners a dose of what he thinks country music should sound like. “Our mission is to bring back country music,” Colt said. The Crossroads covers classic country from musicians such as Loretta Lynn and the late Jim Reed. While those selections might not be what’s currently coming out of Nashville, people still love that style. “People tell us they love what we’re doing and what we’re playing,” Colt Buckelew said.

Though Colt tasted some country music success years ago, he also knows bucking the current trend and establishing a musical career takes a lot of work and commitment. “It’s miserable starting out,” he said. “Nothing but rocks and bumps along the way.” Today’s technology has opened doors and opportunities for bands such as The Crossroads that didn’t exist a decade ago. It’s something Colt and The Crossroads plan to take advantage of as they navigate around those bumps and rocks. “We just think this is something important to do,” Nicole said, “giving people a taste of that true country music.” Check out The Crossroads’Facebook page for more information and performance locations and times. daniel@thepicayune.com

MARBLE FALLS — Sometimes, the most comforting feeling comes from being wrapped up in a nice quilt. And a Prayer Blanket Ministry wants to provide that comfort for veterans at the Temple Veterans Administration Hospital. While the women of the ministry are creating the quilts, prayer blankets and personal care kits for the veterans, they’re also giving area residents an opportunity to help out. All people need to do is purchase chances on winning one of two quilts. Karen Wilkes and Janet Herzog came up with the blanket ministry. It draws on members of St. John the

Evangelist Catholic Church in Marble Falls and St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Horseshoe Bay. “We wanted to do something to help the veterans, especially those in the hospital,” Wilkens said. “We started collecting things for them and also did prayer blankets and quilts.” The members also asked the director of the hospital what the veterans needed. “He said when a veteran arrives at the hospital, they usually don’t have anything,” Wilkens said. “We came up with putting together these personal care kits for the veterans. That way, they’ll have some of those items and don’t have to worry about getting them.” The group came up with selling

chances on the two quilts to help fund the program. The Prayer Blanket Ministry is offering up two quilts: the Stars of Glory (70 inches by 60 inches) and the Waves of Glory (108 inches by 98 inches). “One is almost a king-size quilt,” Wilkens said. The chances are $1 each or $5 for six. People can purchase the chances through the end of September from any of the Prayer Blanket Ministry members or from the Knights of Columbus of either church. For more information or tickets, call Wilkens at (512) 789-3955 or Herzog at (830) 598-5654. daniel@thepicayune.com

BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

BURNET — Sure, smoking ribs in a homemade barbecue pit is a good time, but combine that with good friends and great music, and you’ve got the 16th annual Burnet BBQ Cook-off and Music Festival. “It’s the fellowship and camaraderie with all the people I meet at the cook-offs,” Matt Cogburn of Burnet said. “I’ve made friends with a lot of good people around Texas that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet.” Cogburn leads the Lonestar Barbecue Society BBQ standings this year with partner Dean Dukes and Dukes Pepper Co. “It’s probably gotten to where ribs are my favorite thing to cook,” Cogburn said. The cook-off, Sept. 27-28 at the Burnet County Fairgrounds, 1301 Houston Clinton Drive, is free to attend. Spectators can taste samples of the competitive categories of brisket, ribs, chicken, beans, wild game, margaritas and dessert. Promoter Damon Beierle said registration is open until 6 p.m. Sept. 27 for those who want to compete.

“We’re expecting the biggest cookoff yet,” Beierle said. Last year’s cook-off had 64 teams, and this year Beierle said 80 are expected. Gates open 7 a.m. Sept. 27 for cook check-in and at 9 a.m. Sept. 28. Music will be paired with the competition both nights. Friday night features Chris Salinas of San Antonio at the fairgrounds. After Saturday’s cooking and awards, the big concert gets under way at 6:30 p.m. at the Haley-Nelson Park Amphitheater, located on Garden Trails Drive off Texas 29.

PICAYUNE CONTEST

BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — When golfers hit the greens at Delaware Springs Municipal Golf Course on Oct. 5 for the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center’s tournament, it will mark the 30th year that duffers have teed up for the center. “It’s probably one of the longest-running golf tournaments around,” said Debra Stewart, the crisis center’s project manager. “For us, this is one of our biggest fundraising events.” The four-person scramble gives golfers a chance to help out the family crisis center, which provides free confidential counseling, shelter, clothing and sometimes financial assistance to men, women and children who find themselves victims of domestic abuse. The center, located in Marble Falls, offers a place for domestic violence victims to seek shelter as well as time to get back on their feet. “Most of the golfers who participate in the tournament probably already know what we do and what we are,”

Guesses will not be accepted until delivery of papers begins Tuesday night. Congratulations to Myrna Mund of Llano who correctly identified last week’s photo of the welcome sign at Robinson Park in Llano. Watch this space next week for an announcement about the latest winner. STAFF PHOTO BY JARED FIELDS

Stewart said. “But for those new to the tournament, it gives us a chance to let them know the services we provide and the role we play in the community.” The four-person scramble costs $65 per person, which includes a cart, green fees, range balls and a fajita dinner. The shotgun start is 12:30 p.m. Golfers can sign up all the way to the day of the tournament.

Individuals who don’t have a team to play with still can register, and the golf pros will place them on a team. Along with a day of golfing, participants have a chance to win a new car. Stewart said Johnson-Sewell Ford is sponsoring a hole-in-one contest on the 13th hole. If a person sinks a holein-one at that hole, he or she could win a new Ford Fusion. “The 13th hole is the betting hole,” she said. Along with the car, golfers will find a circle on the 13th hole green. If a golfer gets his or her ball in the circle, there’s a chance for some prize money. Players looking to try their hand at some cards as well as golf can enter the poker run. “They’ll pick up a card at the registration table but then pick up some more at the 13th hole.” Stewart said. “Then they’ll get their last cards when they finish (the round). It’s just another way for people to have fun and help out.” If the golf, hole-in-one chance and poker run weren’t enough, folks can give the crisis center a boost by participating in the silent auction. A line of items will be on display at the club house, 600 Delaware Springs Blvd., for people to bid on. The Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center relies on donations, fundraisers and its thrift store for most of its budget. The center serves people in Burnet, Lampasas, Llano and Blanco counties. Along with golfers, the center is looking for sponsors and silent auction donors. Call (830) 693-3565 or go to www.hlcc. org/golf for more information. daniel@thepicayune.com

The Marble Falls Senior Activity Center, 1200 Seventh St., recently celebrated its 26th anniversary. The Marble Falls Noon Lions Club saw a need for the center and started it in 1987 by renting a room and inviting a group of retirees to come together. As the group became larger, First National Bank gave them some land on Seventh Street in Marble Falls where they erected a building. Members include Mary Meyers (left), Artie Allen, Arnold Holden and current president Ben Bailey. For more information, call (830) 693-5611. COURTESY PHOTO

Joshua Debo (front, right), 15, the son of David and Maurina Debo of Spicewood, has been awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. Josh is a member of Troop 284, which is sponsored by First Baptist Church of Marble Falls. He enlisted the help of his troop to clear and burn about an acre of dense cedar and other brush for First Baptist Christian School. The brush was a safety concern for the school, and the task seemed overwhelming until Josh and about 20 Boy Scouts devoted their Saturdays to it for a month. Josh is a member of First Baptist Church of Marble Falls, a sophomore at Faith Academy of Marble Falls and a member of the Faith Academy Flames football team.

HOOVER’S VALLEY — At one point in a person’s life, he or she wants to find where “X” marks the spot. Treasure hunting fills our psyche with hopes of riches and adventure. But most people abandoned those dreams when the credits rolled on the latest Disney movie. Sean Jones, a park interpreter with Inks Lake State Park, wants to rekindle those dreams. A global-positioning system (GPS) or smart phone replaces the treasure map while GPS coordinates become the “X.” Geocaching is the modern twist on treasure hunting. “One of the great things about it is it combines the outdoors with technol-

ogy,” Jones said. “So it appeals to kids who just love to have some type of technology in their hands. But it’s also an adventure that families can do together.” In geocaching, a person uses a GPS device or a smartphone application to navigate to specific GPS coordinates. Once he or she arrives at the coordinates, the challenge becomes finding the actual “X” or treasure. “As good as GPS is, they still only get you within 20 or 30 feet,” Jones said. “Then, finding the actual cache is up to you. Some of them could be as small as a match box or as large as an ammo container. You may have to hunt for them. And sometimes, you don’t find them. That’s what makes this so fun.” Jones is hosting a geocaching instructional program 9-10:30 a.m. Sept. 28 at the park, 3630 Park Road 4. During the workshop, Jones will demonstrate how geocaching works and how, with a brief introduction, individuals, groups and families soon will be part of the world’s biggest treasure hunt. While people can use their own GPS units or smartphone apps, Jones said the park will have several units on hand. One of the great things about geocaching, it’s rather simple. The excitement comes in the hunt and search for the treasures, or, in this case, caches. People can locate cache coordinates through various websites, including www.geocaching.com. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has the Texas State Parks Geocache Challenge. People can find those points at www.texasstateparks.org/geocache. Participants can earn prizes through the parks geocache challenge. When a person or group finds a cache, they typically sign a log book inside it and take a “treasure.” “Usually, you take a trinket that’s in the cache,” Jones said. “But, in return, you usually leave one as well.” While trinkets might not seem like the treasure of years past or the ones dreams are made of, Jones pointed out the value isn’t just in what you find but what you experience along the way. “It encourages you to get outside and explore the world around you,” he said. “It encourages you to go to places you’ve never been before. It gets you to go down a new road.” Jones said he plans on hosting a geocaching workshop every other week.
