Buchanan Arts & Crafts Guild celebrates 50 years of creating art, friendships BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — When Deborah and Dean Horton decided to build a chicken coop to give their grandchildren an appreciation of

where food comes from and rural lifestyles, they didn’t know the undertaking would mean so much work — and a dash of notoriety. “Yeah, it took us probably two months to build it,” Dean Horton said. “During the summer.”

Marble Falls theater students take charge in ‘Shakespeare in Hollywood’ production BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — When the Marble Falls High School cast and crew of the upcoming production of “Shakespeare in Hollywood” realized they weren’t where they needed to be in their rehearsals for the Oct. 24 opening,

the students had a choice: Go with what they had or dig in and put in extra time on the stage. “I was so proud of the kids,” theater arts teacher Jon Clark said. “They stepped up. They said, ‘We’re not where we need to be.’ The upper classmen said, ‘We need more rehearsals.’” See STUDENTS / Page 7

Deborah Horton laughed a bit. “We really didn’t know it was going to take so long or turn out like this,” she said looking at their chicken coop. See COOP / Page 6

Helping Center garden workday growing vegetables, relationships BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

All Burnet County 4-H clubs came together Oct. 12 to assist The Helping Center in Marble Falls with its gardens. The club members, parents, leaders and club managers got their hands dirty pruning, sifting through Alpaca waste to make fertilizer, spreading coffee grounds for the compost piles, trimming bamboo, clipping and more. Helpers included Kayla Ables (back, left) and Sharon Ables; Addyson Randall (middle, left), Kylee Randall and Mimi Moran; and Piper Moss (front, left) and Haylee Randall. COURTESY PHOTO

MARBLE FALLS — Gardening grows vegetables, but it also offers a place for nurturing relationships — whether family or community. “Sometimes, we have these generation gaps, but gardening has a way of helping close those gaps,” said Pete Smith, a member of the Highland Lakes Master Gardeners. On Oct. 27, the Highland Lakes Master Gardeners in conjunction with Starbucks is giving families, groups and individuals an opportunity to do just that during a workday 1-4 p.m. in

IF YOU GO WHAT: Workday at The Helping Center garden WHEN: 1-4 p.m. Oct. 27 WHERE: 1315 Broadway in Marble Falls FOR MORE: Call Pete Smith at (903) 569-7174 or Karen Wilkens at (512) 789-3955

the garden at The Helping Center of Marble Falls. “This actually serves two purposes,” Smith said. “It’s a fundraiser, but it’s also an educational and community program. This is a chance for us to help the community become aware about the garden project.”

The Highland Lakes Master Gardeners started the garden adjacent to the food pantry, 1315 Broadway, several years ago as a way to help grow fresh produce for the center. But the garden has grown into much more. “It’s also a place where (Master Gardeners) can share what we know with other people,” Smith said. But the workday also provides a great backdrop for building a community. After all, there are not many better ways to get to know your neighbors or develop stronger bonds with a child than getting your hands dirty — all for a good cause. And, as Smith said, the workday can bring generations together. Children who might not have thought they had much in common with their grandparents discover something that links them. A bond is built. “We’re encouraging people to bring their families and children,” Smith said. “We’ve had 2-year-olds and even 20-year-old (children). Make it a family affair.” The workday serves several purposes. For one, it’s a chance for the Master Gardeners and volunteers to get some needed work done at the garden. All the vegetables grown on the patch next to The Helping Center go into the pantry and help feed the facility’s clients. Smith said the Master Gardeners will divide people into teams with each focused on a particular task such as weeding, clearing brush or spreading alpaca manure (yeah, you read that right). Workday volunteers also can learn about growing their own fresh vegetables. Because if you ask a Master Gardener about gardening, they’re going to share everything they know. Starbucks is offering grants based on the amount of volunteer hours worked during the event. The more people who show up and help, the more possible funding received by the Highland Lakes Master Gardeners. And that money goes back into the garden. The only thing people need to do is show up. Smith recommends people wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Call Smith at (903) 569-7174 or Karen Wilkens at (512) 789-3955 for more information on volunteering, the workday or the Master Gardeners program. daniel@thepicayune.com

“This” is nothing like a normal chicken coop. Instead, it looks as if the chickens got a nice home in the country. “Well, I thought if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right,” Dean Horton said. “And doing it right only took a little more work.” The coop features stained cedar siding, a tin roof, two screened-in feeding areas and screened windows to allow in fresh air and sunshine. The stinky, dusty and dingy chicken coop many people remember from their childhoods shares only one thing with this upscale hutch: chickens. Dean Horton enclosed the coop with cedar post and fencing. And people can relax in one of two chairs in the yard

While 5-month-old Carlee Horton is a little too young to enjoy romping around the chicken coop with her two older cousins, she still finds a way to enjoy it by hanging out in a nearby swing. COURTESY PHOTO while watching the chickens. “Our grandkids love to sit in the chairs, holding the cat and watching the chickens,” Deborah Horton said. The Horton’s three grandchildren — 9-year-old Autumn, 6-year-old Cashton and 5-month-old Carlee — are the reason behind the construction project. The Hortons came from rural roots, even before settling on their Burnet County acreage on Park Road 4 about a year ago, but they noticed their grandchildren — though far from being city kids — didn’t hold those same country binds. So, the couple decided to do something about it. They refurnished an old cedar-log building that was on their property and

turned it into the grandkids’ clubhouse, complete with a table, a shelf and a toy kitchen. “They call it their ‘little house on the prairie’ when they come out here,” Deborah Horton said. The Hortons even keep a horse along with all the necessary tack for the grandchildren to ride (well maybe not the 5-month-old, yet). “Our kids grew up riding horses and rodeoing, so now it’s time for their kids,” Deborah Horton said. The chicken coop, however, proved a challenging project. When the builders poured the concrete slab for the playhouse, Dean Horton had them add a smaller slab for what would become the coop. Then, when he found time this summer, he tackled the construction. “This was all him,” Deborah Horton said. He started with an idea of what he wanted the coop to look like. But as he went, he added things and made some adjustments “I didn’t have an intricate plan of what I wanted, but I had a good idea about what I wanted it to look like,” he said. At first, the two runs adjacent to the actual coop were uncovered. But Dean Horton decided to put tin roofs over them as well. Then, he remembered how old windows used to have counterweights to open and close them, so he built the coop’s doors using that concept so somebody could open and close them from outside. “That way, you don’t even have to go into (the roost) to open the door,” he said. And two rectangle doors below the windows open up into the chickens’ nests, so the Hortons or their grandkids can gather eggs from outside as well. Despite all the amenities that allow them to take care of the chickens from outside the coop, the couple said there’s not much the two older grandchildren enjoy more than getting inside and trying to catch a chicken or two. “They have a good time, and that’s why we built it,” Dean Horton said. Visitors to the Hortons’ home often remark on what a nice chicken coop they have. But any requests for Dean Horton to build one for them are quickly turned down. “Oh, no,” he said with a laugh. “I don’t think I’ll build another one. I’ll give them some plans, but I’m not going to build one.” daniel@thepicayune.com


Students also built scenes and made costumes for production FROM PAGE 1 So two weeks out, the cast and crew packed more time on their already tight schedules. And every minute counted. One day after a dinner break, Clark pulled up to the high school auditorium. He saw about 20 kids sitting outside the door waiting — for him. He was two minutes late. “It was amazing,” he said. “They understand a good show isn’t going to just materialize, we have to work for it.” The production opens Oct. 24 and continues Oct. 26-28 at the auditorium of the high school, 2101 Mustang Drive. The curtains go up 7 p.m. for each show except on Oct. 27, when it starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for students and may be purchased at the door. “Shakespeare in Hollywood” by Ken Ludwig throws a wrench in Williams Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The story is set in the 1930s when Max Reinhart is directing the play for a movie production. In Ludwig’s take, two of Shakespeare’s fairies, Oberon and Puck, are transported to the Hollywood set, and comedy ensues. At first taken aback by their new surroundings, the two fairies become enamored by Hollywood and all its trappings. “I’ve always liked Ken Ludwig’s works,” Clark said. “His stuff is very funny. This year, we have a big produc-

tion class, so I wanted something that would have a lot of characters and give a lot of the kids stage time.” Clark thought “Shakespeare in Hollywood” was a great fit, but he wasn’t sure if his students would like it. But when they read through the play earlier this year, laughs soon followed. “The kids loved it, so the decision was made for me,” Clark said. The students in his technical theater and production class began preparing for the show soon after school started in August. With any high school program, teachers worry about the students’ commitment, especially when they participate in so many other activities. Clark admitted he held a similar concern. But the students quickly put it to rest. “They worked their tails off,” he said. And it wasn’t just the actors on stage. Students also built scenes, helped with costumes and ran the lights. For an audience to “suspend belief” for the 90 or so minutes of a play, every part of the production must work together, from the actors’ lines to the addition of lighting at just the right time. While Clark could race around the set, barking orders or tackling the technical side himself, he preferred to let the students learn each part of theater production. In the end, he pointed out, it’s their show. “One of my goals this year was to hold them responsible,” he said. “But

GAMETIME

MARBLE FALLS — Few members of the Marble Falls High School football team could stop the raw emotion after losing 31-27 to Leander Vandegrift on Oct. 18. But they put the loss behind them and began mentally preparing for Cedar Park Vista Ridge on Oct. 25 at Mustang Stadium, 2101 Mustang Drive. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. “They’re very disappointed young men, and rightfully so,” head coach Todd Dodge said. “(The loss to Vandegrift) will not cause another. We have three weeks left. Basically, the playoffs start (this) week.” “We’re disappointed,” senior receiver Garrett Gray said. “We have three more games to play. We can win them all. We can’t pout over this one. It’s over.” Just as the Mustangs (2-5, 0-3), the Rangers (4-3, 1-2) enter the contest on a loss. Vista Ridge fell to Leander 36-21 on Oct. 18. The game is a must-win contest for both Marble Falls and Vista Ridge to keep their playoff hopes alive. But that’s not all the two teams have in common. Both squads start sophomores at quarterback. Rangers quarterback Matthew Snow has completed 27 of 61 passes for four touchdowns and six interceptions and ran 86 times for 333 yards and two touchdowns. The Rangers are led by senior run-

ning back Stedman Mayberry, who has 76 rushes for 448 yards and five touchdowns and has caught nine receptions for 155 yards and one touchdown. And just like other Cedar Parkbased teams, Vista Ridge likes to control the clock by using a power run offense with the only exception being that the running back, not the quarterback, is the center of the offensive scheme. The Rangers average 26 points a game and allow 19 points a contest. Meanwhile, the Mustangs are looking to end a four-game losing streak with the aim of being more offensive in the second half. In the loss to Vandegrift, Marble Falls was scoreless for almost 21 minutes of the second half. Dodge said the Mustangs defense the past two games has held opponents to scoring totals that give his squad a chance at winning. But he also credits the opponents’ defense for making plays down the stretch to preserve a win, such as Leander Rouse, or coming back for the victory, such as

Vandegrift. The Mustangs had a 27-24 lead with 3 minutes 32 seconds left in the game. The Marble Falls defense had been protecting the lead for about 15 minutes, forcing the Vipers into two punts. But Vandegrift went back to its basic offensive approach, which was power football. By the time junior quarterback Jamie Hudson scored from the Mustangs’ two-yard line on third down, the Vipers had covered 74 yards on 12 plays that chewed up 2:44. On the flip side, the Vipers defense kept the Mustangs out of the end zone for most of the final two quarters. “We needed another score, and we could not get it,” Dodge said. “We probably ran out of steam a little bit. That’s a lot to ask the defense to do.” For the season, sophomore quarterback Brennen Wooten has completed 161 passes for 2,095 yards and 23 touchdowns. Senior running back Keith Jerome has 109 carries for 683 yards and 10 touchdowns, and senior receiver Garrett Gray has caught 48 passes for 833 yards and 12 touchdowns. Dodge said players and coaches are aware of the task in front of them, winning the final three contests to get into the postseason. “It’s a three-week playoff to see who gets the last spot (from District 25-4A),” he said. “We have to go out and win every game.” jfierro@thepicayune.com

District title for Burnet runs through Liberty Hill Burnet High School’s Jonathan Brown (center) looks for some space between the tackles during the Bulldogs’ 45-0 win over Gatesville on Oct. 18. Burnet plays Liberty Hill on Oct. 25 at Panthers Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m.

BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

BURNET — The Burnet High School football team ensured the Oct. 25 showdown against Liberty Hill will have District 8-3A championship implications. “The majority of time over the last 10 years, the district championship has gone through (Liberty Hill),” Burnet head coach Kurt Jones said. “That’s what we want people to be saying about us. The only way to make that happen is if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.” The Bulldogs (5-2, 1-1) crushed Gatesville 45-0 on Oct. 18 to earn their first district win. Meanwhile the Panthers (6-1, 2-0) defeated Brownwood 31-20. Liberty Hill utilizes the Slot-T formation, a running attack that capitalizes on misdirection to confuse the defense. “We feel like we’re a pretty experienced team,” Jones said. “Liberty Hill is as experienced as anybody. They run that offense as well as anybody in Texas.” The Panthers are led by senior quarterback Tyler Vickers, who has 36 rushes for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Senior running back Nick Barrios has 93 rushes for 701 yards and nine touchdowns, while senior running back Will Fromme has carried 85 times for 646 yards and seven touchdowns. “They have hard-nosed kids who run hard, and they have quality speed as well,” Jones said. “You have to be

ready to defend both to a certain degree when you play Liberty Hill. Liberty Hill always does a good job on offensive line as well.” Against the Hornets on Oct. 18, the Bulldogs racked up 328 total yards of offense. But most important, they capitalized on turnovers. Jeremy Ayers recovered a Gatesville fumble during a punt, and senior quarterback Derek Kiser hit senior running back Brock Foster for a 15-yard touchdown four minutes into the contest. The Bulldogs special teams blocked a punt that resulted in another 15-yard Kiser touchdown pass, this time to Joel Johnson. “We were good in all three phases of the game,” Jones said. “That’s what you want to string together. Gatesville is a good team. We knew it was going to be a big battle all night. We definitely made the big plays.” Kiser had completed 12 of 16 passes for 207 yards and four touchdowns.

Cody Jones caught two passes for 78 yards, Johnson hauled in five for 71 yards and two touchdowns and junior Brock Foster nabbed four receptions for 60 yards and two touchdowns. In Burnet’s 36-31 los s to Brownwood on Oct. 11, the Bulldogs gave up three big plays on special teams that turned into Lions points. Against the Hornets, Burnet’s special teams played a big role in leading the way to the win. “I answered a lot of questions, and I’m sure our players did, too,” Jones said. “Mentally, how can you put a gut-wrenching loss to Brownwood behind you? I thought we had a great week of practice. It showed against Gatesville. I’m proud of our kids for bouncing back the way they did.” The Bulldogs travel to Liberty Hill, 16500 Texas 29 West, for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff Oct. 25. jfierro@thepicayune.com

Faith clinches playoff spot, preps for non-district match BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

GAMETIME

MARBLE FALLS — The Faith Academy football team is going through a disruption of its normal routine this week. First, the Flames (7-0, 2-0 in Division III, District 3) return to non-district play when they face San Antonio Hawkins. Next, that contest is on a Thursday with a 6 p.m. kickoff Oct. 24. Hawkins is led by quarterback Cendell Pope, running back Gerson Mena and receiver Keenan Terricks. Flames head coach Russ Roberts said the best approach to preparing for the game is to keep things simple during a short week. “We can’t change much,” he said. “After this one, we got a district game left and then an open week that might change things. But this ain’t it.” And that means Faith is continuing to do what it does best: an offensive scheme revolving around the run and a defensive scheme putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback. But perhaps the disruption in routine started Oct. 18 during a 50-6 win against Texas School for the Deaf when the Flames clinched a playoff berth. And they did it with more of a passing game, which accounted for

252 yards, than with their rushing attack, which totaled 177 yards. After Faith took a 20-0 lead on running touchdowns from junior running back Royale Brown, sophomore running back Jacob Metcalf and senior quarterback Austin Ellis, Roberts decided the game was a good one to practice the passing attack. Ellis hit Metcalf for a 42-yard touchdown, while senior Zach Haydon found Brown on a 36-yard score. The coach had two reasons for working on the passing attack. “We needed the practice,” Roberts said. “And they were dropping their safeties way back. We were real simple. The passing game always looks more planned and more organized than the running game does. We ran very few routes. We ran them over and over.” He was happy to see the passing game work so well, which puts more pressure on opponents to prepare for it as well as the Flames’ rushing attack. “They’re not going to have the same feeling about us,” he said. “They can’t be loading the box.” Roberts credited the defense for its performance and noted the Rangers scored when Faith reserves had taken over. Ellis completed 10 of 11 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown, while Haydon completed all three of his pass attempts for 66 yards and a touchdown. Metcalf caught three passes for 105 yards and a touchdown and rushed six times for 73 yards and a touchdown. Faith will make its fourth consecutive playoff appearance under Robert’s direction in a few weeks. The Flames don’t know who they’ll face yet, he said. jfierro@thepicayune.com

LLANO — Now that the Llano High School football team earned its first District 8-3A victory of the season, the Yellow Jackets are trying to start a winning streak. But their opponent, Gatesville, doesn’t want to start a losing skid. Llano (3-4, 1-1) defeated Lampasas 58-57 in overtime to keep its playoff hopes alive, while the Hornets (3-4, 1-1) fell to Burnet 45-0, both on Oct.18. “I know (head coach Kyle) Cooper,” Llano head coach Craig Slaughter said. “He’ll get those kids fired up and ready to go.” The Hornets are led by senior running back Jake Kee. Kee is a speedy runner, who quickly gets to his top speed once he gets past the line of scrimmage and is difficult to catch. During the win against Lampasas two weeks ago, Kee rushed for more than 200 yards. But Burnet was able to stop him in the contest last week. “We’re going to have to play some really good football,” Slaughter said. “We still own our own future. You play good football, you still have a chance at playing extra games. You need district wins badly, which we got against Lampasas.” The Yellow Jackets led 43-27 when Lampasas scored 24 points. With a minute left, Llano senior quarterback Layton Rabb ran in a two-yard touchdown and found senior receiver Isaac Hutto on a two-point conversion to send the contest into overtime. Then, Rabb hit Hutto for a 22-yard touchdown completion and a 58-51 lead. The Badgers’ Irvin later scored on a three-yard run. Lampasas decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion and called for a run. Llano senior safety Sawyer Stiles made the tackle to secure the Yellow Jackets win. jfierro@thepicayune.com

Moonlight Madness mixes up sales and fun for a day of ‘spook-tacular’ savings BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — The idea is simple: Throw a pre-holiday shopping event by adding a dash of humor, costumes, sales and specials as well as a few surprises, shake it all up, toss it out and see what you get. Moonlight Madness. And on Oct. 24, more than 50 businesses in Marble Falls are looking to attract regular customers as well as entice some new faces through the door. “Moonlight Madness is a great opportunity for we retailers to draw in new consumers to see what we have,” said Jeff Ford of Ford & Crew Home and Hardware, 1400 Ninth St. “It’s a great event to, hopefully, show consumers that there are stores here in Marble Falls that have everything they would find in larger cities.” Moonlight Madness, a joint venture of The Picayune, KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune and the Marble Falls/ Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce, is a one-day, shop-local event. The concept is to get people to shop at local stores. Participating retailers and businesses will display a pumpkin on their front window. Inside, shoppers will find the staff dressed up in costume, specials or other things to make for an enjoyable shopping experience. “One of the things I love about it is it’s designed to make shopping and retail fun,” said Bill Rives, the chamber’s executive director. “I’m hoping that a lot of the stores take advantage of the day and really go all out. And then

the folks out shopping can just have a great time shopping and exploring stores they may never have set foot in before.” One of the benefits for shoppers, besides finding great deals and discovering that shop they never new existed, is the possibility of winning something. Each of the participating businesses will have punch cards. Customers can pick up a punch card at any of the participating locations and, if they get at least five holes punched by visiting other participating shops, they are eligible for a grand-prize drawing. Once a person gets the five holes punched, just drop it off with the last business visited (after writing your name and contact information on it), and it will be turned in for the drawing. Many of the participating businesses will be offering door prizes of their own, so shoppers who hit as many stores as they can increase their chances of winning something. Over the years, new businesses have popped up, offering fresh places for shoppers to explore. Or, in the case of Ford & Crew, which has been a Marble Falls staple for many years, Moonlight Madness offers another chance to bring both regular and new customers in or to reintroduce the store to people. “We look forward to Moonlight Madness because it is a chance to bring in new consumers and show them what we have here in Marble Falls,” Ford said. “Plus, it’s a fun, festive holiday event that everybody enjoys.” daniel@thepicayune.com

traditional fall flavors for Moonlight Madness such as caramel apples. “We’ll have fun with a dress-up contest for the kids,” she said. “I just think it’s one of those events everybody can come out and have a good time during.” Johnstone, who is known for her numerous quiche recipes, sees the benefits of Moonlight Madness from the persectives of both businesses and customers. She pointed out it’s easy to get in a routine, but Moonlight Madness offers a great way to shake it up a bit by trying something new and different. “We have all these great stores and shops here in Marble Falls. Why not just walk in and check one out you’ve never been in before?” she said. “I think people will be surprised by the truly unique shops they’ll find right

here in Marble Falls.” Of course, since it’s connected with Halloween, Moonlight Madness gives businesses a chance to show off their light-hearted side. Many of the participating businesses are decorating and dressing up based on a chosen theme. “We’ve picked ‘Duck Dynasty,’” Johnstone said, referring to the TV show featuring the well-bearded and camouflaged-wearing Robertson family and their Duck Commander crew. “Yeah, and all the girls will be wearing beards. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” McCloughan agreed. “It’s something different to get people excited and out shopping local,” she said. “So, come out have some fun.” daniel@thepicayune.com

BY DANIEL CLIFTON MARBLE FALLS — Corinne McCloughan, co-owner of Pitter Patter Children’s Consignment Shop in Marble Falls, looks forward to Moonlight Madness. “Halloween is so much fun for me, so it naturally translates into an event for the store on Moonlight Madness,” she said. “I really look forward to it because it gives me an opportunity to play with the kids who come in and, hopefully, enjoy some more sales.” McCloughan and her mother-inlaw, Merci McCloughan, opened Pitter Patter, 701 U.S. 281, Suite F, about a year ago. In fact, they held the store’s grand opening on Moonlight Madness last year. “It was a great day for us,” she said. “I’m looking forward to see if this Moonlight Madness is just as good.” Moonlight Madness is a shop-local event Oct. 24 with more than 50 Marble Falls businesses participating. The Picayune, KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune and the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring the event. Organizers hope the day, which includes plenty of specials, fun activities and even door prizes, encourages people to check out some of the local shops, businesses and stores. And many of the participating businesses are offering additional sales and other enticements to get folks through their doors. Corinne McCloughan said Pitter Patter will have storewide discounts and half-off Halloween items. But it’s not just parents who will benefit from Moonlight Madness at Pitter Patter. “Outside, we’ll have games, treats and lots of fun things for the kids to do,” she said. “We’ll have somebody out there with the kids, so parents can come inside and shop.” Downtown, Elaine Johnstone of Main Street Coffee is planning a day of pumpkin-flavored fun. “Pretty much anything that’s pumpkin flavored will be half price,” she said. Johnston owns the coffee house and diner at 108 Main St. She’s looking forward to adding some

Moonlight Madness 2013

Event going strong for more than 30 years BY CONNIE SWINNEY

Maggie Ortiz, a store clerk at Salem’s Fashion at 514 U.S. 281 in Marble Falls, decorates a front-window display with a fall and Halloween theme in anticipation of the upcoming Moonlight Madness on Oct. 24. The annual event involves local merchants decorating, offering customer discounts, staying open later and donning costumes to promote business.

Picayune Staff

Shop local all year round

MARBLE FALLS — For the past three decades, Moonlight Madness has conjured up a business-friendly atmosphere and charmed local residents looking for Halloween festivities, longtime participants say. The annual event, always on the Thursday before Halloween, features a business costume contest, customer discounts and later store hours with the idea of launching the Christmas shopping season, coaxing more customers into stores and spreading some holiday cheer. “We always won best costume,” said Rose Metzler, who in the early 1980s worked at The Woodshed, a novelty and accessory store at the intersection of First Street and U.S. 281. Metzler recalled costume themes — some political and clever and others classical or nostalgic. “The judges would come by,” she said of the ongoing costume contest. “I remember my husband, one year, he was a fabulous Michael Jackson. It was a big party all over town. It was

so much fun.” Since the beginning of the event, merchants from banks, retail stores,

restaurants, churches and even a nursing home have participated by not only dressing in Halloween costumes but hosting fall festival-style activities in parking lots and inside businesses. “It was always an annual thing that people expected. People always knew it was the Thursday before Halloween,” said Susan Salem Judice, store manager for Salem’s Jewelry and Fashion, 514 U.S. 281. “Families would dress their kids up and bring them trick-or-treating at the businesses and go through the spookhouse, and they would shop.” The purpose of the event involved creating a customer-centered promotion. “It was always a promotion to kick off the holiday season,” Judice said. “We kicked everything off with a big sale.” At one point, Moonlight Madness planners took a hiatus for several years but rekindled the event in the mid-2000s with merchants touting the value to their bottom lines. “We have a lot of things marked down crazy cheap,” Judice said. “It’s good for us to move things out that we need to move out to prepare for the season.” connie@thepicayune.com

Moonlight Madness 2013

Local shopping means good things for Highland Lakes, Marble Falls BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — While Moonlight Madness on Oct. 24 doesn’t officially kick off the holiday shopping season, organizers hope residents will see it as an opportunity to check out local retailers and remember them when it comes time for Christmas shopping. Because in the end, money spent locally benefits not just the retailers but the entire community. “Residents in the Highland Lakes area represent a lot spending power,” said Christian Fletcher, the executive director of the Marble Falls Economic Development Corp. “When that power is focused locally and leakage to other areas is minimized, everybody wins.” The most obvious benefactors of local sales are the area retail businesses. The more these shops sell throughout the year, the better their bottom lines. And the Christmas shopping season often pushes retailers into the black as they turn a profit. The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally called Black Friday as it shows the significance of the holiday season for retail businesses. But those sales translate into more for the local economy. “Businesses that are more profitable employ more people and

pay better wages, which, in turn, generates more direct and indirect sales taxes,” Fletcher said. “When sales tax collections increase, we have more opportunities to invest in enhancing our quality of place and making our community more vibrant while keeping our residents’ property taxes in check and maximizing their disposable income.” In other words, strong local sales make for better-paying jobs, less dependency on property taxes and more individual financial power. Though Moonlight Madness falls a week before Halloween, still well ahead of the traditional first day of the Christmas shopping season, a good deal remains a good deal. According to the National Retail Federation, shoppers aren’t necessarily waiting until Black Friday to hit the stores for Christmas gifts. In fact, more people are taking advantage of earlier shopping days for several reasons, including avoiding crowds, special deals and spreading out their gift-buying budget. “Consistent with results seen the past 11 years, four in 10 Americans say they will begin holiday shopping before Halloween,” according to the federation. More than 20 percent actually start looking for deals and shopping in October. We l l , t h a t ’s e x a c t l y w h a t Moonlight Madness is all about, getting out and shopping, with a very local twist.

So if people hit the Moonlight Madness shops Oct. 24 and get a bunch of Christmas shopping done, it means they can spend the day after Thanksgiving doing what that Friday was created for: eating leftovers. daniel@thepicayune.com

Santa’s Helpers get started on Halloween to provide Christmas gifts for kids BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

BURNET – A haunted house with a mad surgeon and zombies remain staples of Halloween. However, April Vaughan said she’s looking forward to other parts of the Burnet County Santa’s Helpers Haunted House this year. “I think I’m more excited to see how the kids’ stuff turns out,” said Vaughan, secretary for Santa’s Helpers. The group raises money each year to provide Christmas gifts for kids who might otherwise go without. The helpers are partnering with Freedom Flyers to use its hangar for the haunted house. Admission is $5 or a new toy donation. The haunted house is 7-10:30 p.m. Oct. 25-26 at the Freedom Flyers hanger, 3202 S. Water St. (U.S. 281). David Smiles, Freedom Flyers

executive director, said the haunted house will take up about half of the 10,000-square-foot hangar, and some of the fleet’s airplanes will be moved outside. Vaughan said the Burnet police and fire departments as well as the sheriff’s office are coming up with the themes for different sections of the haunted house. “I’ve got an idea of what they’ll do, but it’s a surprise for me, too,” Vaughan said. The haunted house also will feature plenty of kid-friendly activities Oct. 26. A bounce house will be set up along with games, face painting and crafts from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The highlight of the afternoon is the Cute Little Spooks Costume Contest at 4 p.m. Four age groups — 0-5 years, 6-9, 10-13, 13-plus — will be judged in categories of funniest, scariest, cutest, most creative and family/group costume. A best in show also will be chosen. “I’m so happy with how many people have helped us out,” Vaughan said. “It’s a lot of work doing it, but it’s fun.” jared@thepicayune.com

Tow’s fall festival features old-fashioned fun BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

TOW — Sara Holland turned to her past when she and other Tow Community Center Association members began exploring ways of raising money for the center and throwing a festival for families. “We thought about doing a trunk-or-treat, but we started thinking about the type of things we did growing up at our fall festivals and Halloween parties,” Holland said. “You know, we wanted kids to try things like bobbing for apples and pin the broom on the witch. So, we thought, ‘Why not have something like that?” On Oct. 26, the Tow Community Center Association will do just that at the center, 135 CR 221. Starting at 5 p.m. and going until whenever, organizers are throwing the Old Fashioned Fall Festival. “We know there are a lot of things going on that day, but we hope the kids will come out so they can see what we did as kids instead of just going door to door asking for candy,” Holland said. The event also serves as a fundraiser for the organization as mem-

IF YOU GO WHAT: Old Fashioned Fall Festival WHEN: 5 p.m. to whenever Oct. 26 WHERE: Tow Community Center, 135 CR 221 in Tow FOR MORE: (325) 379-1069

bers look to make improvements to the 70-plus-year-old community center. The facility serves as a meeting place for Tow, with everything from family reunions to weddings to just get-togethers taking place. “We use it for everything,” Holland said. The festival will feature more than 20 booths of games, activities and other things. Many of the activities organizers pulled from their years of growing up. There will be a “fish pond,” where kids can toss a line over a hung sheet. Once the line settles, a “fish” will give it a tug or two, and the child reels in his or her catch, usually a toy surprise. While some prizes are candy, the association is trying to stick with more toy prizes. Volunteers also are baking up cakes, cookies and other goodies for a cake walk.

THE PICAYUNE • PAGE 19

And what fall festival would be complete without a hay ride? Well, Tow’s Old Fashioned Fall Festival will have one. Association members will be serving up hot dogs, drinks, snacks, snow cones and even hot chocolate. “If it’s cold, we’ll have hot chocolate, if it’s not, it will be snow cones,” Holland said. The Llano High School band is building a haunted house inside the community center. Holland said the haunted house is a fundraiser specifically for the band. Organizers are looking for more volunteers to man the booths. While the festival raises money for the community center, Holland said the main purpose is to give children something fun to enjoy. “We’re doing it for the kids,” she said. “I love listening to kids giggle.” Children use tickets for the booths and other activities. Holland said one or two tickets will be the typical “cost” for most booths. People can purchase tickets at the gate at $20 for 50. Call (325) 379-1069 for more information. daniel@thepicayune.com

Burnet’s Join the Journey takes another step in fight against drug abuse BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — When Janet Christiansen and several Burnet leaders stood before students and community members in May pledging to keep the fight against drug abuse and the impacts of its use at the forefront, it wasn’t just talk. After unveiling Join the Journey, organizers are holding another community program 6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in the auditorium at Burnet High School, 1000 The Green Mile. “We’re really trying to keep the

spotlight on the problem of drugs in Burnet,” Christiansen said. “It really does effect all of us, not just the one using the drug.” Christiansen understands the horrors drug abuse inflicts beyond the user. On Dec. 14, 2011, her 21-yearold son, Caleb Christiansen, died

after using drugs. In April of this year, the man who sold Caleb the drug pleaded guilty to delivery of a controlled substance. Christiansen decided to use what she learned from her son’s struggles to help other families and the community. One of the things she stresses is how illegal drug use weaves its way through the entire community, even impacting those who feel insulated from it. “When there’s drug use, there is increased criminal activity,” Christiansen said. “Businesses are affected because people working for them may have problems with drugs

or they may be (burglarized), all because of drugs. Even people who don’t have children are affected by this problem. Everybody is.” The purpose of the Oct. 30 meeting is to continue to make people aware of the problem, how they can make a difference and where they can turn if they suspect somebody they know is struggling with drug addiction. “One thing we want to do is offer help,” Christiansen said. “Parents need direction. What do you do if you suspect your child is using drugs? What do you do if you have a friend dealing with them? People

don’t always know where to turn. We want to be that place they can turn for those answers.” The event is open to parents, community members and students, especially middle school through high school. “We’ll have several licensed chemical dependency counselors on hand,” Christiansen said. “People can ask them questions, but they’ll also be available afterward if somebody wants to ask them something privately.” Go to www.btxjourney.net for more information. daniel@thepicayune.com

Blessing for Cypress Mill woman turns into Locks of Love donation BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — As Doris McLaurin settled into the chair at The Hair Loft in Marble Falls, she laughed a bit, just enough to hide the smidgen of uncertainty she felt. “I’ve been talking about doing this for a couple of months,” she said as stylist Connie Holmes stepped up behind her. Holmes held a pair of scissors in one hand and took up McLaurin’s long locks in the other. “There were times I would almost talk myself out of it,” McLaurin said. “But, I figured this will help somebody else.” Holmes weaved McLaurin’s hair into a ponytail that stretched several inches below the woman’s collar. McLaurin sat waiting for the moment. Though she’s had short hair before, the Cypress Mill woman began growing it out about six years ago. Until several months ago, she thought about cutting it but never did — and never had a reason to. Then, two months ago, something changed. McLaurin discovered a lump in one of her breasts. “I definitely had a scare when I found that lump,” she said. Fortunately, a test revealed it to be

Zaba Team in Horseshoe Bay named semifinalist for realty award HORSESHOE BAY — Zaba Team Keller Williams Realty has been named a Platinum Top 50 SemiFinalist for the third year in a row. The honor recognizes those who exemplify initiative, success, involvement and philanthropy in the real estate industry. The Zaba Team sold 68 units for a total of $22 million over the past year, sponsored the Friends of the Poor Walk, earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation for 2013 and participated in educational events, including the Keller Williams Realty annual convention and the Mega Agent Camp. The members of Zaba Team are broker/owner Georganna Zaba, Cathy Ryden, Brigitte Nolen, Mona Soland and Nikki Fox. Finalists for the award will be named in December.

benign. Relief replaced McLaurin’s uncertainty and fear. And she made a decision. “I wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love,” she said. The organization accepts hair donations that it then turns into wigs for children suffering from hair loss because of cancer or other conditions. Holmes, the owner of The Hair Loft, said she often has customers wanting to help Locks of Love. As Holmes cut through the ponytail, McLaurin smiled. Despite growing her hair for more than half a decade, she found happiness in what it would be used for. “God blessed me with (the lump) being benign, so I thought I’d bless somebody with my hair,” she said. daniel@thepicayune.com

McLaurin, who has been growing her hair out since about 2007, donated the cut portion to Locks of Love, an organization that provides wigs to children who suffered hair loss because of cancer or other illnesses.

Fellow Buchanan Arts & Crafts Guild member Shirley Shaw agreed. “We’re definitely here to try and make some money by selling our art, but we enjoy each other’s company and have a good time,” she said. “If somebody says they’re heading for Georgetown one day and asks if anybody wants to come along, next thing you know, there are two or three cars headed that way.” The camaraderie and support started 50 years ago when Alma Howerts’ desire to learn more about art and share that with others creat-

ed the framework of the Buchanan Arts & Crafts Guild. She and a few like-minded folks formed the guild in October 1963. On Oct. 26, the guild members are celebrating the organization’s and gallery’s 50th anniversary from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery is located at 17534 Texas 29. “What’s amazing is this little guild is the oldest one in the United States,” said Ruth Jones, a longtime member. A guild is basically a cooperative of local artisans and craftspeople. The guild supports members in various ways, including providing gallery space where members can display their works and sell them. While many guilds focus on arts such as painting and drawing, the Buchanan Arts & Crafts Guild includes “crafts” as well. “I think that’s very important,” Jones said. “There are people who enjoy making other things.” Shaw pointed out the gallery exhibits a breath of arts and crafts, including jewelry, woodworking and even knitted items along with the paintings and drawings. A big part of the guild is sharing knowledge and fostering the development of artists and craftspeople. Throughout the year, the Buchanan

Arts & Crafts Guild hosts workshops and seminars at the gallery. And it’s not just for members; all are welcome. “That’s how we grow the arts, even here in this area,” Shaw said. “We want people to learn and study.” Shultz said a big part of her growth as an artist came from attending workshops by other artists. These also provide opportunities for artists to explore other forms and mediums. “We have people come from Fredericksburg, and we have one woman who came from Austin for (a Betty Bielser-led) workshop,” Shaw said. While adults typically make up the attendees at the workshops and weekly open paintings, the guild sets aside a week during the summer to hold an art camp for youth. Shaw said the reason is simple: The youth need exposure to arts and crafts. “Arts are so important,” she said. “They really help develop the entire person. And kids need that.” Shultz said many children come year after year. “It’s fun to watch how they grow and improve in their art,” she added. Though Buchanan Dam sits far outside of a major city and is located on Texas 29 between Burnet, Llano

and Kingsland, the guild and gallery have flourished over the years. There are about 30 current members, but more are always welcome. The guild even counts the late Lady Bird Johnson as a former honorary member. “Considering where we are, it’s kind of amazing the gallery and guild are here,” Shaw said. “Can you imagine what was out here in 1963?” Shaw asked. “I think it really shows how important the arts are to the community. We don’t have a town out here, but we keep going.” Everybody is welcome to the open house. Members and volunteers are making light refreshments to serve and there will be some door prizes. While the members celebrate the arts and crafts, they also know it’s the people who really make the guild and gallery special. “I think we all look forward to coming here and helping each other and anybody else,” Shaw said. “We do have a lot of fun.” Go to www.buchananartsandcrafts.org or call (512) 793-2858 for more information. The gallery is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. daniel@thepicayune.com

Jimmy Travis Dean came into this world May 17, 1940 and left this world October 4, 2013. He was born to Winnie V Townsend Dean Zimmerman & Travis Dean of Hot Springs Arkansas. Jim Travis started his Radio Career at 19 at KBHS in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He was a DJ for the original KOKE in Austin, Texas, moved to San Antonio, Texas as the morning DJ for KBUC Radio. He next moved to Austin, Texas to the Country Giant KVET AM. Jim worked at KVET AM on and off for 17 years teaming up with the infamous Sammy Allred and the Afternoon delight Penny Reeves. While a DJ in Austin, Texas he owned ‘Kicker Jim’s’ Nightclub and traveled with his famous MUSIC MACHINE; his slogan was “I have been to more weddings than most preachers.” Jim Travis worked at KBUC Radio in San Antonio, WBAP in Fort Worth and in the early 90s he teamed up with a new personality, his wife, JO Mama. Together they worked KAT Radio in Austin, Texas; Round Rock’s KICK 92 where he was known as Ranger Jim. In his almost 50 year radio career he was on air in many markets including New York City, Shreveport, Louisiana and even in Kentucky; where he was presented with the title of Kentucky Colonel. In January 2013 he was inducted into the Texas CMA Radio DJ Hall of Fame…an honor he so rightfully deserved and which was given to him towards the end of life…what a way to go!! Jim’s sarcastic sense of humor and his ability to tell whooping great stories will be greatly missed by everyone who ever listened to him or knew him. He is survived by his wife, of 33 years, Jo Travis of Austin TX. Sons Duane Dean and wife Jeannie Dean of Farmersville, LA, Keith Dean of Brazoria, TX, Traye Dean and wife Mary Dean of Georgetown, TX, Daughter Michelle Dean Plunk McDonald and husband Chris McDonald of Marble Falls , Texas.

Run for your life! It’s the Undead Dash 5K raising money (and the dead) to help with Burnet students’ spring trip

Burnet High School Highlandettes Mandy Cockrell (front, left), Sara Biscotto, Chastity Reyes (back, left) and Ryan Winkler get ready for the Undead Dash on Oct. 26 at Haley Nelson Park at 301 Garden Trails in Burnet.

BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — If you think you can outrun a zombie, then sign up for the Undead Dash on Oct. 26 — just in time for the spookiest day of the year. “We thought it would be something fun and different,” said Stephanie Idell, one of the organizers of the event. Different definitely fits the bill for this five-kilometer fun run. Though the thought of an undead horde descending out of the hills doesn’t seem fun, Idell promised it will be. The Burnet High School Highlandettes and Burnet Ensemble and Theater Co. are sponsoring the Undead Dash to help with their spring trip to New York City. And what better way to raise money than to also raise a few zombies. The Highlandettes and BETC members are portraying the zombies, and you’ll get a second chance at life if one happens to grab you along the course at Haley Nelson Park, 301 Garden Trails.

lives.” The run starts at 7 p.m. with a Kids K/Obstacle Course taking off at 6:30 p.m. The kids’ event is open to children 12 and younger. Suzanne Wideman, another Undead Dash organizer, said the concept for the zombie-filled run came about as the groups brainstormed fundraising ideas. “We were tossing ideas around, including doing a haunted house and a 5K,” she said. “We all started brainstorming, decided to put the two together, and this was what we came up with.” Registration for the Undead Dash is $30, while the Kids K/Obstacle Race fee is $20. Entry forms may be dropped off with a check payable to “EDC Boosters” at the high school, 1000 The Green Mile, or the Burnet Chamber of Commerce, 229 S. Pierce St. The 5K runners have the option of participating in the zombie game. And you can even purchase two additional lives and go through the zombie area a second time. Along with running from zombies, folks can check out a bake sale (because after being chased by the undead, a cookie sure hits the spot), and stick around for the Monster Ball Party. Pick up a registration form at the high school or the chamber office. You also can go to www.burnetchamber.org to download one.
