Howdy-Roo cookoff remains hot ticket after four decades

Stewards of Red Top Jail in Llano hope renovation project helps 118-year-old structure retain its history of ghost stories and old-style justice

Annual event grows from 20 cooks to a couple hundred BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff


LLANO — Whether it is ghost stories or theories about the “gallows,” the Red Top Jail serves as a reminder about the harsh history of incarceration and justice as Llano grew and prospered during the 1890s. “They didn’t have heat. They didn’t have air-conditioning. They didn’t have visitation. There were no laws for jails back then,” said Janie Prew, who served as a jailer and cook at the 118-yearold structure in the late 1970s. “(Incarceration) was more effective back then than now.” The Red Top Jail, located at 400 Oatman St., was built in the late 19th century and used as the county jail until 1982. “It’s the last jail of its kind. It’s an imposing building on the south side of the (Llano River) bridge,” said Frank Rowell, president of Friends of the Red Top Jail. “It’s a one-of-a-kind structure. History took place there, not just people in jail. Families grew up there who lived on the first floor.” The structure, considered the See GHOST / Page 3

chambers of commerce to have an event like a spring festival to promote tourism,” said Great Pepper Larry “Doc” Kinnison of the Highland Lakes pod. “This is how ‘Howdy-Roo’ got started, as an old-fashioned country festival and chili cookoff.” The first cookoff was April 8, 1972, at a Marble Falls school, he said. Bill Kennon was the head See JUDGES / Page 4

Prew lived and worked there from 1977 to 1979. Jailers’ families lived on the first floor, while inmates in recent history were incarcerated on the second floor of the four-story building.

Smithwick off-road park hosting fifth annual Wheelers for the Wounded event BY DANIEL CLIFTON

MARBLE FALLS — Several decades ago, the city of Marble Falls needed a spring event to get people out of their homes and draw out-of-towners to Johnson Park. Clyde “Griff” Griffin, a resident and active member of the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce, came up with the idea of a chili cookoff after seeing other festivals in surrounding towns. That event, Howdy-Roo, is now in its 42nd year and is May 3-5 at Johnson Park, 230 Ave. J South. It is organized by the Highland Lakes CASI Pod. “(Griffin) gave us the first recipe and really enjoyed it,” CASI committee member Ruby Ross said. “It has grown and grown and grown. It grew because of his imagination.” “The Highland Lakes tourist association urged all the area

at Hidden Falls Adventure Park. “Freedom really isn’t free,” Eades said. “Our young men and young women have paid the price and are paying the price for it. You realize how much they give when you spend a day with them.” On May 4, more than 400 military men and women, all of whom are Purple Heart recip-

ients, and their families will spend the day “rock crawling” and off-roading at Hidden Falls Adventure Park, located seven miles east of Marble Falls on RR 1431. This is the fifth year the park and the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce have helped host the event. See DRIVERS / Page 7

CONGRATULATIONS The Red Top Jail, located at 400 Oatman St. in Llano, was used as the county jail until 1982. It’s closed to tours to allow for an $82,000 stabilization and renovation project.

FROM PAGE 1 39th oldest jail in the state, originally housed the jailer’s family on the first floor. The second floor featured eight jail cells that allowed for four prisoners each. Earlier in history, the third floor included a “dungeon,” more jail cells and a fourth level that featured a device that secured a hangman’s noose to the ceiling.  The architecture is referred to as “Romanesque revival.” The jail included a four-story gallows tower for possible hangings that “became a constant reminder to outlaws that they should keep their guns at home,” according to the Friends website.  “There’s no proof (the gallows) were used, but stories were told that they were,” Rowell said.  Such theories evolved into ghost stories.

“That’s kind of a novelty. The ghosts are open for interpretation. There are numerous theories. Some claim it’s on an Indian burial ground,” Rowell said. “Another story is there was one of the jailers who committed suicide on the first floor. All of those things together give it an interesting theory as to why there are ghosts there.” Ghost hunters claim to have recorded “extrasensory activity,” including electronic voice projections and photographs of orbs and ghostly figures. In 2008, volunteers transformed the jail into a haunted house for Halloween. Shortly after, the Red Top Jail was closed to tours as structural problems surfaced, city officials said. A combination of city funding, private donations and fundraisers have raised $82,000 to launch the first of three phases for a stabilization and renovation project for the structure. The funding includes $45,000

from the Friends group that includes two grants: $25,000 from the Texas Historical Commission and $20,000 from the city. “We’re just starting to do some renovation work on the building,” Llano City Manager Brenton Lewis said. “We’re trying to preserve the history, so people coming through town or the local citizens can see how far we’ve progressed from the 1900s until now.” Volunteers are working to secure a contractor. Prew said she appreciates the move to preserve history. “(Being a jailer) was a very draining job. You were always having to do something for the inmates. You were in jail yourself,” she said. “Everyone needs to know what it was like living in that time frame. It’s great that they’re restoring it.” For more information on the Red Top Jail, go to

Judges for beans, barbecue and chili are needed FROM PAGE 1 “Honchoroo,” the first chairman of Howdy-Roo, after winning the naming contest for the festival. Kennon submitted the only entry, Kinnison said. The first chili cookoff drew 20 cooks. In 1973, the event moved to Johnson Park and has been there ever since. The Chili Cookoff has received five automatic bids to the Terlingua International Chili Championship and has steadily grown into the second oldest pod cookoff in the state. At one time, organizers limited the competition to 100 chili cooks; today, that number is at 165 (and expectations are it will be more this year) and at least 50 barbecue cooking teams. “I think it’s just a lot of fun,” Ross said. “We try to make each one better and better.” This is the 19th year for the annual barbecue state championship. “Doc and I travel all over the country,” said pod member Carrie Kinnison, Kinnison’s wife. “We always hear some comment about Howdy-Roo.” “People come out here a lot because of the park,” Ross said. “We feel like

Retirement Pathways Meetups now every month BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

The Highland Lakes CASI Pod, the organization responsible for Howdy-Roo, includes members Johnny Campbell (left), Melba Westerman, Larry Kinnison, Carrie Kinnison, Fred Westerman and Ruby Ross. The group invites the Highland Lakes community to the 42nd annual CASI Chili Cookoff at Johnson Park, 230 S. Ave. J in Marble Falls. STAFF PHOTO BY JENNIFER FIERRO it’s very beneficial to the city. It brings a lot of visitors to our city and increases our economy.” Many of the participants stay in their recreational vehicles at Johnson Park, but they can’t do that before May 1. One group the steering committee needs are judges for beans and barbecue but, mostly, chili. To judge, email Ross at “We’re expecting a record number of cooks,” Carrie Kinnison said. Tim Collier of Snyder returns to

attempt to win his third Howdy-Roo chili cookoff. To be a member of the Chili Appreciation Society International, events must benefit a charity. HowdyRoo has chosen The Helping Center, the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department and Marble Falls Boy Scouts Troop 284. During the past four decades, Howdy-Roo has given more than $500,000 back to the community, according to published reports. Pod members said they have lost many friends, including Griffin, who

died June 13, 2012. They’ll have a moment of silence to honor him and others. To compete in the chili cookoff, contact Doc Kinnison at; for barbecue, email Johnny Campbell at; to play in the golf tournament, email Kyle Bond at; and to be an arts, crafts or food vendor, contact Melba at

MARBLE FALLS — When Polly Johnson held a meeting in April to help people closing in on retirement prepare for the life-changing experience, she discovered once just wasn’t enough for several of the participants. “People wanted more discussion about (retirement) and preparing for it,” Johnson said. “I don’t think people really get much opportunity to discuss preparing for retirement and what to expect when they retire.” So Johnson has taken her one-day workshop and created a twice-monthly “Retirement Pathways Meetup” every first and third Wednesday of the month. The first one is May 1. The meeting is 3-4 p.m. at Main Street Coffee, 108 Main St. “I would encourage people who are thinking about retiring in the next five years or so to come,” said Johnson, whose doctoral studies included looking at the transition to retirement. But she also hopes people who have recently retired as well as those already retired attend. While much of the focus regarding retirement deals with the financial aspects, Johnson said there are many more issues people face as they move from a career or work into retirement life. “These meet-ups will include discussions about different aspects of retirement such as what will you do with your time, changes in your sense of self or identity in retirement, social outlets, sense of purpose, family adjustments with retirement, working in retirement as well as financial adjustments,” she said. The meetings will likely start with Johnson giving a short introduction on a topic but then open it up to discussion. Johnson hopes to add some guest speakers as the twice-monthly meetups continue. While the program is geared toward those considering retirement in the next several years, she encourages people who are already retired to attend. “They may have some thoughts and ideas for people who are preparing to retire,” Johnson said. “There’s a lot of things we can learn about retirement and making that transition from people who have already done it. One of the things I heard from people attending the first program in April was they like to hear what other people’s experiences are.” While many people look forward to retirement, Johnson said it is a major life-changing experience. “(The meet-ups are) an opportunity for people to come together, discuss their thoughts and concerns and maybe learn some tips and tools they can use in their lives,” Johnson said. The Retirement Pathways Meetups are free. The upcoming dates are May 1 and 15, June 5 and 19 and July 3 and 17. For more information, email Johnson at or go to

A line of four-wheeled drive vehicles makes its way through Hidden Falls Adventure Park during a previous Wheelers for the Wounded event. Organizers are expecting about 400 Purple Heart recipients and their families to attend the fifth annual event May 4 at the off-road park, located seven miles east of Marble Falls on RR 1431. STAFF PHOTO BY DANIEL CLIFTON


Drivers volunteering time and equipment FROM PAGE 1 Eades, who’s volunteered each year, said the goal is simple: Give the service members and their families a day outdoors. “A lot of guys who were injured (in the wars) enjoyed being outside and doing things outside, but because of their injuries, they may not have been able to do that as much,” Eades said. “This gives them a way to get outdoors and just have a great time.” But Wheelers for the Wounded isn’t just for the outdoorsy type. Eades said the event gives many of the Purple Heart recipients and their families a chance to experience an adventure they might otherwise never get. Off-road and rock-crawling rig owners, more than 100, volunteer their equipment and time to take the service members and their families on trips throughout the several-thousand-acre park. The rig owners pay for their own expenses. “They come from all over Texas to be a part of this,” Eades said of the rig owners. The trails vary from dirt roads to extreme rock crawling. Rock crawling is a sport in which participants modify four-wheeled drive vehicles to the point the rig can climb rocks and hills that some would say is “impossible.” The Purple Heart recipients come from the Fort Hood area, Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio and Houston. Many of them have suffered catastrophic injuries, including loss of limbs or burns. But when they crawl in one of the four-wheeled drive rigs and head down the trail, Eades said they’re all smiles. “The funny thing is we go up and

thank them for their service, but they turn around and just thank us for the day,” Eades said. “They’re so grateful for the time they have to come out here and have a family outing.” Eades said the service members aren’t just responding to the off-road adventure. Some of the most important aspects of the day are the times when the service members can just have an ear to bend. “They just love to have somebody to sit down and talk to,” she said. The day isn’t just off-road riding. Those who aren’t interested in hitting the trails will find plenty of things to do. “We’ll have entertainment for the kids. We’ll have entertainment for the adults who don’t want to go out,” Eades said. “They’ll definitely be something for everybody to do.” While the day is set aside for the Purple Heart recipients, Eades said the public is invited to volunteer or come out and greet the service members. The event starts at 9 a.m., but the buses begin arriving before that time. People interested in volunteering or assisting can call Eades at (830) 693-4449.



“It’s a very moving experience,” Eades said. “It makes you more aware of what they have given for freedom.”

Nightengale Archaeological Center digs into pre-historic Highland Lakes BY SUZANNE FREEMAN Picayune Staff

KINGSLAND — Along the Colorado River, many thousands of years ago, pre-historic people hunted, gathered, cooked and lived in what is now the Highland Lakes. “This part of the country was heaven on earth to pre-historic people,” said Patrick Hatten, a member of the Llano Uplift Archeological Society, which is based in Llano. Besides water, they had plenty of wildlife to hunt and some of the best tool-making material around: Edwards chert, or flint, from the Edwards Plateau. “(The flint) was widely traded, because of its quality,” Hatten explained as he recently conducted a tour of the Nightengale Archaeological Center. The center is nestled between the Twin Oaks subdivision and the shores of Lake LBJ on RR 1431 just before the highway climbs up Lookout Mountain and descends into town. Complete with an air-conditioned building, restrooms, displays and open digs, the facility is owned by the Lower Colorado River Authority. It is operated by society members who give tours to anyone who shows up between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.

Hatten is one of the members usually on hand to lend his expertise as he leads visitors along winding, gravel pathways through oak trees. His excitement for and knowledge of his subject shows as he tells the story of our Hill Country ancestors. When asked about his enthusiasm, he humbly maintains his status as an amateur. “I’m just a history nut,” he says, before moving on to explain how looters found this site about 25 years ago by spotting smoothed-out indents in the bedrock. “These bedrock metates are all over the place,” he said, noting that people probably used metates and manos to ground pecans into meal that they then mixed with water. Pecan-meal cakes were cooked on flat stones in stone ovens. “These are stone-age people. They did everything with rock,” he said. Neighbors notified authorities about the looters, which is how the area’s importance was first discovered. Archeologists, both professional and amateur, excavated the site, cataloguing more than 100,000 artifacts. Although it is no longer an active dig, artifacts are still unearthed by rain and animals. Every piece uncovered is catalogued by its location and sent to the University of Texas at Austin, where

it is stored and studied, Hatten said. Researchers value the tools and information for what they can tell us about the past but also about what more we might learn from them in the future. “We don’t know what kind of new technology might be coming down the road years from now,” Hatten said. “We can get new information.” For example, when a large site was uncovered near the Kingsland Slab several years ago, archeologists at first assumed it was a village. In the center was a large hearth with what looked like dozens of smaller hearths surrounding it, all of which would have been covered by grass huts. A UT professor had developed a method of using Earth’s magnetic field to determine how hot a rock has been heated to in its past. Called archaeomagnetism, this method was used to discover that the hearth rocks near the Kingsland Slab had been heated to about 750 degrees, a temperature no grass hut would have survived. “Instead of a village, we had an industrial cooking complex,” Hatten said. “This was a group of ovens. This is why you curate so much material. You can come back and test and completely change your interpretation.” Hearth stones, metates and manos (the Cuisinarts of the stone age) are not the only artifacts found in abundance at the Nightengale site. Spear points, arrowheads and cutting tools have been found in abundance. Hatten pointed out that the bigger flint points are not actually arrowheads. They are spear points and points used on atlatls. Tiny arrowhead points are only about 1,000 years old, which is when bows and arrows were developed in this area. The larger spear points can date to the time of the mammoths. Atlatl is an Aztec word for a weapon common to all hunter/gatherers around the world. They were in use 18,000 years ago in Europe and 6,000 years ago here. It is a throwing device that gives the human arm enough power through leverage to pierce the hide of a mammoth at short distances. “This was the weapon of mass destruction of its time,” Hatten said. You can learn much more about our pre-historic past with a visit to the site, which you can find by turning into the Twin Oaks subdivision on RR 1431 and following the signs. Call ahead at (830) 598-5261 to make a reservation with a society volunteer. The Llano Uplift Archeological Society meets 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of most months at the center.

Rope and ride in support of Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

BURNET — Faced with uncertain grants and funding, the Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center hopes people will saddle up May 4 to support the organization and the more than 300 youth its programs serve. “This is our first time to do this,” said Doris Graeter of the advocacy center. “But we aren’t doing our bike ride anymore, and grants are being cut every day, so fundraisers like this is what keeps our doors open.” The “Cowboy Up for Kids,” a day of riding and roping, begins at 9 a.m. at Rodeo Town, 6000 U.S. 281 North in Marble Falls. Younger riders, and some adults, will participate in a play

day. Graeter said the youth will compete in cloverleaf barrel racing, poles and other horseback events. Registration for the play day opens at 8 a.m. Team roping starts at 2 p.m. with registration at 1 p.m. Graeter said the two events seemed like a natural fit for HCCA. “One of our board members is really into team roping and another one is really into play days, so we thought this would be a great fundraiser,” she said. But it’s not just for those who ride and rope. HCCA is holding a festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the same grounds during which children and adults can enjoy other activities, including face painting, stick-horse racing and concessions. Wristbands

are $10. While the event focuses on fun, the reason behind it isn’t as uplifting. The center provides support and resources for children who have been victimized. Its Sunshine House in Burnet provides a safe, child-friendly environment where youth come if they have been victimized. A specially trained individual will conduct a forensic interview of the abused child. In the past, a child might have to relive a terrible incident numerous times because various law enforcement agencies might need his or her statements. Through HCCA’s efforts, the child no longer has to suffer through many interviews but typically does one in a “neutral, home-like atmosphere.”

Officials videotape the interviews and provide copies to necessary law-enforcement and legal entities. But the center’s commitment doesn’t stop there. “We offer counseling and services to the child and non-offending family members,” Graeter said. While housed in Burnet, HCCA provides its services to six area counties. Each year, the organization serves between 300 and 325. Graeter

said the number is even higher when considering the non-offending family members. Along with raising money, Graeter said she hopes the event raises awareness about HCCA and the vital role it fills in the community. For more information, go to www.

Keep Kingsland Beautiful gets word out about recycling BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

KINGSLAND — What started online during the Kingsland incorporation initiative of 2011 is now taking to the streets. Melissa Eddy followed an online forum discussing the pros and cons of the initiative. After the incorporation initiative’s defeat, Eddy recognized an opportunity to better the community. “I got to thinking, you know it would be a shame after this went away if all this civic engagement just disappears,” she said. A meeting soon after with Shelly Comerford led to the formation of the nonprofit organization Keep Kingsland Beautiful. “There were good issues brought up during the incorporation effort,” Comerford said. “Why can’t we as a community pull together and do something to clean up Kingsland without creating an entire other layer of a governmental entity to take care of that?” Keep Kingsland Beautiful was incorporated in January 2012 and received its 501(c )(3) status in November. Comerford said the organization’s focus is to educate and help Kingsland residents. “People don’t realize the recycling opportunities we have available in Kingsland,” Comerford said. “This is a way to get people an avenue to recycle more and to educate people about all the avenues that are available.” Keep Kingsland Beautiful organized a cleanup day last year, adopted a stretch of RR 1431 and has been responsible for a trash trailer at the Slab. Eddy said volunteers went through dozens of trash bags during the first highway cleanup last August. The recent quarterly highway cleanup went much quicker with less trash. “It’s nice to see that we’re really having that kind of effect,” Eddy said.

“That’s one of the beauties of all the volunteers, neighbor helping neighbor. It doesn’t take a whole lot to make a difference.” The Slab trailer began last July 4 weekend. With no trash bins for the popular hangout, trash accumulated all over the rocky, watery terrain. After the trial run of the trash trailer, Comerford said hardly any trash was left to be picked up. “I think we picked up one cup, maybe one paper bag. Other than that, it was really clean,” she said. “That was the pilot run, so we said why not do this every weekend.” Keep Kingsland Beautiful also works with property owners or others who need help cleaning their property.

The group has worked to clean debris scattered around backyards, in informal dumping grounds and on lots with unkempt buildings. Comerford said the group likes to help those who are elderly, disabled or who might not have the money to get the equipment to move a trailer full of trash to a dump in Llano or Burnet. “One requirement for them, however, because we’re not the trash company for Kingsland, is in some form or fashion they contribute,” she said. To contact Keep Kingsland Beautiful or to volunteer, visit www. or call (830) 385-6833.

MARBLE FALLS — It’s a scene that would impress even the elves at Santa’s workshop. More than 300 volunteers at 36 bays in the First Baptist Church of Marble Falls parking lot will provide maintenance and basic repairs for more than 100 vehicles May 4. It is the sixth year the church and community have joined forces for C4 Ministry to offer their services to widows and single women who don’t have other means to get their vehicles repaired. “The fun part about this is it’s

been exciting how the community has stepped up,” said Todd Hickingbottom, the mission’s minister at First Baptist and one of the directors of the C4 Ministry, which stands for Christian Community Car Care. Registration for the event was capped at 100 cars, which was reached weeks ago, Hickingbottom said. What is needed, he said, are volunteers. Although the event is at First Baptist Church, Hickingbottom said a number of churches are involved in the event, as well as mechanics and auto parts stores in town. “We’d love for anybody to volunteer; it’s a community event,” he said. “You can work with cars as a shade-tree mechanic or with people serving food or work with children.” Volunteer registration is available online at People are needed for a variety of services at the church, 501 12th St., from 6:30 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. Along with mechanics of all levels of experience, people are needed

for child care, check-in and registration, welcomers, safety officers, setup and tear-down, food prep, parts delivery, paper work, mentoring and a number of other services. Donations also can be made on the website. When a car comes in, a mechanic will go over a 40-point checklist with the vehicle. Basic repairs and maintenance from oil changes to tire rotation and brake services will be done as needed. If more major work is needed, the women will be told what’s going on with their car and referred to a local shop that’s partnered with the C4 Ministry to provide more work. The last care car event two years ago serviced 120 vehicles with more than 300 volunteers, Hickingbottom said. “It’s embraced pretty well by the community, the churches and the ladies that get their cars worked on. It’s a pretty cool event,” he said.

Hill Country Blenders, Bluebonnet Chorale join voices for spring show BY JARED FIELDS Picayune Staff

MARBLE FALLS — Music fans of all types and ages have two big nights of tunes to mark on the calendar. The Hill Country Blenders’ annual spring show for charity, titled “There’s a Meetin’ Here Tonight,” is May 10 and 11 at First Baptist Church of Marble Falls, 501 12th St. Joining the a cappella, allmale chorus will be the all-female Bluebonnet Chorale singing a collection of show tunes.

The show also will include performances by two barbershop quartets: “Premium Blend” and a collegiate quartet featuring the Blenders’ new director Peter Cunningham. Cunningham is a senior at the University of Texas at San Antonio who, for his age, has a number of years of barbershop experience. “Peter (Cunningham) is a real find,” Blenders member Doyal Spense said. “We’re so excited about him because, even though he’s in his early 20s, he brings a lot to the table.” Spense said the Blenders and Bluebonnet Chorale will sing three

songs together and conclude the show with “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” “It’s going well, we’ve had a lot of practices,” Spense said of the preparation for the show. “We’re plugging straight ahead and getting pretty excited about it.” Proceeds benefit local charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past eight years, more than $24,000 has been donated by the Blenders. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from any Blender or at Mustang Lube, 1511 FM 1431.

Roll the ‘food’ dice and get healthy with LunchBox Kids BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

MARBLE FALLS — With smartphone apps, high-tech gadgets and other gizmos on the market, it might be an “old-fashioned” board game that gets kids up and moving in the name of fitness. “I think it would be awesome for every family to own this game and play it on game nights,” said Colt Elementary School physical education teacher Debby Johnson. “The kids loved it when they played it.” The game, LunchBox Kids, is fun but definitely has an educational and

health twist. The cool thing is the youth enjoy it so much, whether answering a question about amino acids or doing some push-ups, they might not even realize they’re learning and developing healthy habits. “Kids’ brains are like sponges,” Johnson said. “They’ll soak up everything in that game.” The inventor of the game, Elizabeth “Liz” Northcutt, introduced Johnson and the Colt Elementary student body to LunchBox Kids earlier in April. Northcutt stopped by the campus and held health seminars during physical education classes. “Along with the game, she’s creat-

ed these (charts) that show kids what’s healthy to eat and what’s really not,” Johnson said. Beyond just showing the chart, Northcutt brought several examples of food items on the chart to show the kids. Northcutt said one of the things that sets her food chart apart from the typical ones available to educators, parents and children is she identifies foods kids actually eat. Instead of simply labeling food groups as “vegetables,” “protein” or “carbohydrates,” Northcutt lists kid favorites such as bananas, oatmeal, chicken nuggets, pizza, popcorn, cookies and doughnuts. Then, she rates those on her food-scale chart based on the

highest nutritional value — medium to high — the lowest nutritional value or no nutritional value. This way, children can rank the food they actually eat based on the chart. There’s also a work-out chart. But the heart of the project is the actual board game. The object of the game is to earn “Healthy Golden Lunch Tickets.” The number of needed tickets to win, say four, determines how long the game lasts. Fewer tickets cuts down the time needed to finish so teachers and parents can tailor it for their needs. Northcutt explained that players (using “food” dice and the game pieces) earn tickets by landing on certain spaces and even answering health/fitness questions. But, players also can lose tickets. When she was developing the game, Northcutt held numerous events to allow children and adults to play it. What amazed her was the youth enjoyed answering the questions and even became excited about landing on spots where they would have to draw a trivia card. The game also offers places where all the players get up and exercise. Again, Northcutt heard lots of positive feedback from children during the testing phase. “The kids really had a part in creating this game,” she said. Northcutt plans a full release of the game in the fall. She’s been working on it since 2007. Northcutt and her husband, Bryan Northcutt, a Marble Falls High School graduate, have always focused on health and fitness. As a mother, Northcutt wondered how she could get her children and other kids excited about healthy eating and living. During a park trip with her family in 2007, Northcutt was jogging while her husband was with their children. While she exercised, the idea of the board game struck. Upon arriving at the playground, she pitched it to her young daughter, Hailey, who was playing on the monkey bars. The youngster told her mother it was a great idea and even told her what to name it. “Call it ‘Lunch Box,’” the younger Northcutt said. Liz Northcutt didn’t waste any time creating the game. She raced to a store, purchased some poster board and designed the initial layout. Northcutt faced several starts and stops along the way — after all, she’s a mother, wife and business owner. On Aug. 17, 2011, she took delivery of 10 game prototypes. PICAYUNE CONTEST

And looking at the prototype boards, Northcutt said the design didn’t change much from the initial poster board. She and her husband did adapt the name a bit to LunchBox Kids at the recommendation of a patent lawyer. “But mostly, it’s the same game that I believe God gave me that day I was running,” she said. She began developing it (each of the characters on the board comes from a family member) and testing it. This included holding numerous gameplay events at which, over the years, thousands of children and many adults (including teachers) played LunchBox Kids and offered feedback. Time and time again, the players raved about the game. “Ninety-nine-point-ninety-nine percent of the kids who played it loved it,” Northcutt said. But it wasn’t just the kids. Adults also gravitated toward the game. During one game-play event, Northcutt had set up other activities for the adults while the youth played the game, but when she looked up at one point, the parents had gotten involved as well. The game has even caught the attention of P.E. teachers and other educators. In June 2012, Northcutt attended a Klein Independent School District teacher development workshop. During the event, long-time P.E. teacher Shawn McNeill tried the game. The next thing Northcutt knew, she was leading a workshop on the game for more than 100 teachers. “I flipped from (showing it to) kids to adults, and I didn’t know how they would react,” Northcutt said. “They loved it.” In Marble Falls, Johnson said many of the game’s questions fall in line with the state’s health and science curriculum, so it serves as a learning tool as well. She’s even incorporating the trivia questions into her daily P.E. classes. “The kids just love the trivia questions,” Johnson said. “I don’t think they even realize they’re learning.” Which is something Northcutt had hoped for in creating the game. “I have always wondered, ‘How can I get (kids) interested in health and fitness and have fun?’” she said. “I believe this game is something kids, families and schools can use to help get kids healthy.” Johnson agreed, and not just in principle. She’s already set aside some of her budget to purchase LunchBox Kids games for the Colt Elementary campus. For more information or to pre-order the game, go to

Smithwick man loses cousin in West disaster, lends hand to community BY DANIEL CLIFTON Picayune Editor

WEST — After a devastating blast at a fertilizer company April 17 that officials believe killed several members of the West Volunteer Fire Department, Smithwick resident Jeff Sellers’ thoughts went to a cousin, William Uptmor, who he and others simply called “Buck.” “He had a fencing company, but he was one of those guys you called if you needed anything,” Sellers said. “If you got stuck in the mud, you called Buck, and he came and helped you get out. If you had tree branches scratching the side of your house, Buck came and trimmed them.” So it did not surprise Sellers that Uptmor was one of the West volunteer firefighters who responded to a fire at the West Fertilizer Co. that day. After realizing they didn’t have much of a chance of containing the fire, the volunteers turned their attention to evacuating nearby residents. It was when the firefighters were helping their friends and neighbors get to safety that a massive explosion happened at the fertilizer company, killing 15 people, injuring 200 more and destroying several buildings, according to officials. The night of the explosion, Sellers learned Uptmor was among the missing. The next morning, a niece called to say the husband and father of three was dead, despite no official statement. “(Another relative) went back into the scene and found Buck,” Sellers said. Sellers, who recently returned from West to help where he could and support Uptmor’s family, described the destruction as that of a cross between

a tornado and a fire. “The destruction looked like a tornado had gone through, but then you also had these places where there had been fires,” Sellers said. “It was terrible.” Sellers, a member of the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department, headed to West to represent the unit after getting Chief Terry White’s approval. Once there, Sellers reported to the West VFD. “One of the things about being in a fire department is you go to all this training, and, at one point or another, you run across somebody from about every department,” he said. “I told them, ‘I’m Jeff Sellers from the Marble Falls volunteer department.’ We hugged, and I told them I knew Buck.” The West department remained a bit tight-lipped about Uptmor’s death since no official statement regarding the loss of lives had been made at the time. Sellers responded to the command center, where officials assigned him to a relief-effort site. There, he saw West residents working alongside people from other communities, near and far. “It was so incredible,” Sellers said. “So much supplies had come in from all over. The people there are taking care of themselves. Then you had other Texans coming in to help out where they could.” Despite the tragedy and destruction, Sellers said he saw something in the West residents. “I would say there was a somber feeling, but yet a sense of pride in their community, in their town,” Sellers said. “I saw an incredible resolve in the people.”

MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School softball team captured a bi-district championship April 27, surviving a three-game marathon against Austin Crockett.

The Lady Mustangs were led by junior Amanda Thomas (8-3), who earned both wins in the circle: 14-2 in five innings in Game 1 on April 26 and 2-1 in Game 3 on April 27. The Lady Mustangs lost Game 2 on April 27 by the score of 3-2. Now, Marble Falls (22-11, 5-7 in District 25-4A) will turn its focus on Lockhart, a preseason favorite to represent Region IV at the Class 4A state tournament. The Lady Lions (24-13, 11-3) were the runners-up in District 27-4A and defeated San Antonio Brackenridge 7-0 on April 26. Lockhart is led by senior pitcher Mikaela Flores (11-2). The Lady Lions average eight runs a contest and give up two. Game 1 is May 2 and Game 2 is May 3 with both contests starting at 7 p.m. Game 3, if necessary, is 1 p.m. May 4. All games will be played at Georgetown Eastview High School in Georgetown. Marble Falls head coach Tino Salazar has scouted the Lady Lions and believes the best-of-three series will be a good one. Salazar’s concern is the manner his team enters this series after the way the Lady Mustangs finished the

The third run was scored off an RBI single in the fifth inning. The runner reached base on a walk. A two-hour rain delay in the top of the seventh gave the Lady Mustangs

time to regroup. Junior Skyler Riley hit an RBI single and came home thanks to a single from junior Tyler Oppenheim. But the tying run was stranded on second when center fielder Jacy Wright got the final out with a diving catch. Marble Falls scored all the runs they needed in the final contest in the third inning. Thomas hit an RBI single, while freshman Makenzie Carpenter added an RBI double.

Mustangs rest up before bi-district series with Austin LBJ BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School baseball team is in the Class 4A playoffs for the fourth consecutive season. The Mustangs (21-7, 13-5) earned more wins this season than they have in the past several years, all under the direction of new head coach J.T. Blair. While players and coaches are happy with the win total, they also

realize they must play their best baseball now. And they’ve had two weeks to prepare for Austin LBJ (14-11-2, 9-3), the District 26-4A third-place squad. Game 1 is 7 p.m. May 2 at Scearce Baseball Field on the Marble Falls High School campus, 2101 Mustang Drive; Game 2 is 5:30 p.m. May 3 at Nelson Field, 7400 Berkman Drive in Austin; and Game 3, if necessary, is noon May 4 at the Toney Burger Center, 3200 Jones Road in Austin. In many ways, the two opponents

are similar, Blair said. “They’re a good, well-coached team,” he said. “They have a good pitching staff, a good, solid pitching staff.” The Jaguar pitching staff boasts of two senior pitchers, Zacharie Johnson and Nate Hattersley, and junior Tristan Burt. All three are team captains. Johnson is a right-handed pitcher and infielder, while Hattersley and Burt are left-handed hurlers. Other pitchers include sophomores Daniel Weinberg and Ben Reiden. Johnson leads the Austin area with a .543 batting average that includes

two home runs, 12 doubles, three triples and 33 RBIs. As a team, LBJ bats .316 with eight home runs and averages seven runs a contest. Blair compared the Jaguars to one District 25 opponent. “Cedar Park, because they had the good left-handed pitcher,” he said. Still, the Mustangs are already used to playing three-game series thanks to a change in the District 25-4A format that was implemented at the beginning of this season. While LBJ has played in 12 district games, Marble Falls has won 13

district contests. And did it all without a bye in six weeks. So Marble Falls has enjoyed the chance to rest the past 14 days. “We needed that time off,” the coach said. “We needed that kind of a break. I think it’s been good for us. We’ve had good intersquads, our pitchers got to rest a little bit.” Blair pronounced the Mustangs healthy for the playoffs. “That’s always good,” he said. “Everybody misses playing; we’re all anxious to get back on the field and play.”


Bulldogs end regular season with big wins, prepare for playoff series with Stephenville BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

BURNET — Knowing it had the opportunity to move up in the District 8-3A rankings, the Burnet High School baseball team put together two extraordinary games less than 24 hours apart. And the Bulldogs crushed Brownwood in both contests April 26-27. Burnet defeated the Lions 8-2 on April 26 and then run-ruled them 12-1 in five innings April 27. That final win means the Bulldogs enter the Class 3A playoffs as the second seed out of the district. They’ll host Stephenville at 7 p.m. May 2 at Bulldog Diamonds, 1000 The Green Mile. The series shifts to Stephenville on May 4 with Game 2 starting at 1 p.m. and a third game, if necessary, following 30 minutes after the conclusion of the second contest.

Head coach Tim Perkins said the Bulldogs have returned to the form they displayed when they started the season and added he has enjoyed their brand of baseball in the past three weeks. “Hopefully, we’re peaking at the right time,” he said. Perkins challenged his players in the middle of district play, he said. “‘Guys,’” he recalled saying. “‘It’s time to put up or shut up. We can work hard, we can get better or we can sit back and relax.’ We have a lot of senior leaders. We can do things correctly.” The Bulldogs chose to get better. As a result, they’ve won four of their past five games, and those four wins were in district play. “We’re hoping to keep it rolling,” the coach said. The most recent loss was to Salado 11-8 in 11 innings April 20. Perkins purposely scheduled that game on the

weekend to get his players used to playing in back-to-back days knowing they had already secured a playoff berth. Stephenville is the third-place team out of District 7-3A. “They’re good,” Perkins said. “That district is all kind of the same. They’ll be as good as anyone in that district.” The reason for the possible double-header May 4 is because of travel concerns, Perkins said. This way, the Bulldogs and fans will only have to drive to Stephenville one time, he added. The last time Burnet played in Region I, the Bulldogs were one series away from advancing to the Class 3A state tournament in 2011. “You hear (the players) talking about it,” Perkins said. “I think we’re confident and ready to play.”

Three Mustangs headed to state meet May 10-11 BY JENNIFER FIERRO Picayune Staff

MARBLE FALLS — Three members of the Marble Falls High School track-and-field team qualified for the Class 4A state meet thanks to finishing in the top two of their events at the regional meet April 27. And they did it in dramatic fashion. Senior Cody Schulz was second in the 400 meters in 49.39 seconds, breaking his own school record in the process. Sarah Lewis was second in the 300-meter hurdles in 46.65 seconds. And senior Rey Baltazar won the discus on his final attempt, marking 166 feet 1 inch to set a new per-

sonal record by 8.5 feet. Head coach Kyle Futrell said the meet was very competitive. Schulz beat Leander’s Caleb Woodward. The two have raced four times and are 2-2 against each other this season, Futrell said. “Cody won the ones that were the most important,” he said. Lewis was running stride for stride with Mercedes’ Alyssa De Leon. The two were leading the race, but De Leon tripped over the sixth hurdle. In qualifying for the finals, the girls 4x400-meter relay broke its own record by clocking 4:04.27. The next day, the Lady Mustangs were fourth in 4:05.33, still under their old record of 4:09.72 they set April 18 at the

District 25-26 area meet. “All the races were close,” Futrell said. “There were times they had to keep running way past the finish. We were pleased with all of them.” RESULTS: Boys — 400: (2) Cody Schulz, 49.39 (new school record); 3,200: (10) Jordan Wright, 10:02; discus: (1) Rey Baltazar, 166-1; shot put: (4) Rey Baltazar, 52-0; long jump: (4) Carson Bowen, 21-5.5.

Flames squads bring home state team championships will be stronger in 2014. “It’ll be cool to win back-to-back (titles),” he said. “We’re not losing anyone on the guys’ side.” That’s not the case with the girls. Thomas, Johnson, Still and Rebekah Graham will graduate in a few weeks. “Nothing’s incomplete,” Thomas said. “I’m happy with everything.” “It never really was about the individual titles,” Johnson said. “It was mainly getting first as a team.”


WACO — The Faith Academy tennis program won both the boys and the girls Class 2A state championships of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools on April 25. Faith has won at least one state title in seven of the past eight years, but it’s the first time both teams won the state championships in the same year. The Lady Flames earned their fourth consecutive team championship, a goal seniors Sarah Mason Thomas, Nicole Johnson and Savannah Still have had since before they were freshmen. And Faith earned the team titles without winning an individual gold medal in singles or doubles. “It would have been cool to get four straight first places,” said Thomas, whose string of individual state championships in singles and doubles ended with a silver medal in singles. “Obviously, getting to the finals contributes to the state team title. For me, Nicole and Savannah, that was still exciting. In the end, it comes down to everyone, not just the ones who get first places.” The Lady Flames tallied 24 points, while Tomball Woodlands earned 20.5 for second and Denton Calvary Academy scored 14.5. “It feels really good,” Johnson said. “We’ve been playing together


MFalls bass fishing team hosts largest tournament, nets nice largemouths INKS LAKE — While Inks Lake is not known as a largemouth bass lake, the high school bass fishing team in Marble Falls might have changed that perception after its anglers hauled in 36 fish, including an 8-pounder and a 7-pounder, at an April 27 tournament. Jake Meadows landed an 8-pound, 5-ounce monster to net the Big Bass of the Year honor. He won the tournament with two fish that weighed a total of 11 pounds 9 ounces. Lane Amidon, who finished second with nine pounds and seven ounces total, landed another nice bass that weighed 7 pounds 11.5 ounces. Third place went to Shilo Nelson with a total catch of six pounds and 11 ounces. Lorna Ellis, a team sponsor, said with 20 boats and 39 student-anglers, this was the largest club tournament since the school’s bass fishing team formed in January 2011. Of those competing, 25 student-anglers weighed in 36 fish during the tournament for a total weight of 84 pounds and 12 ounces. All the fish were released following the weigh-in, officials said. The team’s next tournament is May 11 on Lake Austin that is hosted by the Lake Travis High School Fishing Team. For more information on the team or to get involved, email Ellis at ellisbl@

When we were freshmen, we said, ‘Let’s win four together.’ It’s really awesome.” Johnson said the competition at the state tournament was more challenging than in the past. Team members called the tallying of points “nerve-wracking.” The boys team scored 15.5 points to win the team championship, edging

New Braunfels Christian with 13.5 points, Austin Veritas with 10 points and Hallettsville Sacred Heart with 9.5 points. Junior Reagan Vaughn said he was surprised to learn the boys captured the state championship. “I wasn’t expecting us to do as well as we did,” he said. Most of the Faith players reached at least the semifinals in all four

divisions. Vaughn and Thomas each played for singles championships. Johnson and partner Still and Luke Hering and Alec Gonzales each reached the doubles semifinals.
