Early voting pace heaviest in recent memory Tuesday is general election; early voting ends at 4 p.m. Friday   Early voting in Gillespie County preceding the Nov. 6 general election has hit what is believed to be record levels, according to Mary Lynn Rusche, county clerk, and her staff.   Through Tuesday, 6,280 early votes had been cast, including mail-in ballots in Gillespie County. Early voting continues through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., daily, in the Commissioners Courtroom at the Gillespie County Courthouse, 101 W. Main.   Lines have stretched out the door daily, as clerks have helped 650 or more voters on six of the seven early voting days to date.   “Typically, turnout for presidential elections is higher,” said Betty Crenwelge, who has worked in the clerk’s office for eight years. “But we talked with former County Clerk

Doris Lange and she said she didn’t remember a heavier turnout.”   Clerks also recorded 477 early votes last Saturday and Sunday during weekend voting times. That included 291 votes on Saturday and 186 on Sunday. This week’s balloting included another 650 early votes on Monday Early voting and 533 on totals chart, T u e s d a y . page A17 (See chart on page A17 for daily totals.)   Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6 and poll locations (listed below) will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.   Voting can be done with a voter registration card, or if the person is a registered voter but does not have his or her card, with a driver’s license matching the place of residence.

Animals rebound from drought year; food plentiful throughout Hill Country Deer hunters, take note. Things are looking up. The upcoming season — which starts Saturday, Nov. 3 — has all the signs of outdoing last year’s drought-affected experience, according to a local wildlife official. “The (deer) population looks pretty good to me,” said Gillespie County Game Warden Sam Harris.

FHS band tops all at area; advances to state on Nov. 5


Officials eye a better deer season The animals, he added, are looking healthier this year than in recent years because this part of the Texas Hill Country received “good rains at the right time.” Harris went on to say that he wouldn’t be surprised if the deer tend to shy away from feeders, especially during the early going, because of plentiful vegetation. “The acorn crops and pecan crops are much better than last year,” the local game warden commented, adding that the deer should feed on the naturallyoccurring nourishment before turning to the feeders.

Statewide hunting season prospects “The white-tailed deer herd in Texas is doing well and stable. Despite one of the worst droughts on record last year, the deer population came through with minimal population impacts, which I think in part is a tribute to hunters and landowners doing a better job of managing deer populations and the native habitat across the state,” Alan Cain, deer program leader with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, said. “Most areas experienced a low fawn crop last year, as to be expected, but we had very Cont. on A4

When Fredericksburg friends Kris Ritter and Sarah Kammlah get together for a little “girl time,” it’s a safe bet they’re not going shopping. These days, they’re more than likely to spend all their spare time at “the range” — and that doesn’t mean a hot kitchen stove. The two young mothers have been swept up in the same national craze over archery that continues to exponentially captivate so many of the fairer sex. Whether the movement was spurred on by movies which featured archery in a favorable light

(such as “The Hunger Games” and its bow-and-arrow-wielding heroine, Katniss) or the recent 2012 Olympics competitions, America’s women are flocking to the sport. “If someone had said a year ago that I’d be into archery, I’d have said ‘no way!’,” Ritter said during a recent practice at the indoor, strip-mall range located in Bow Pros archery store, 1581 E. Main Street. But, she explained, “The satisfaction of being able to hit a target that far away that is that small is very gratifying.” “Ten years ago, I would never have seen myself doing this and now I’m in a deer blind every weekend,” Kammlah said. “It’s the feeling I get when I draw back the string, focus and fire. Cont. on A2

STRAIGHT TO THE POINT — Each time Sarah Kammlah of Fredericksburg takes aim at a target and successfully hits the bull’s eye, she sees improvement that serves to fuel a passion for her newfound sport. Whether inspired by films that spotlight archery, such as “The Hunger Games” or “The Avengers,” or because they’ve gotten comfortable with the sport in a non-boys’ club environment, Kammlah is one of an increasing number of local women who are taking bow and arrow in hand. — Standard-Radio Post photo by Lisa Treiber-Walter

Young girl first local West Nile Fever victim The 2½-year-old daughter of a local family is the first confirmed case of West Nile Fever (WNF) reported in Gillespie County. West Nile Fever is less severe than the West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease variety. Within the past couple of weeks, the girl has returned home where she is described as “great; everything looks good,” according to her mother.

The youngster was taken to Hill Country Memorial with symptoms of dehydration, lethargy and a prolonged fever.

“It’s cathartic,” Kammlah said. Swoosh … tha-thump! Swoosh … tha-thump! (Heavy, contented sigh.) “For the ladies, it’s all about the moment — how it sounds — how it feels — the experience of it,” said Larry Morse, of Bow Pros, who said he has seen an increasing number of Gillespie County women coming into the archery shop to use the range more frequently over the past few months. “It’s so different than with the guys. They are worried about the end result. When they start shooting, their form goes out the window. They just shoot,” Morse said. “The girls pick it all up so much faster, because they are better focused and mindful of form and technique,” he said.

‘The girls pick it all up so much faster...’

Already, Ritter and Kammlah have been heavy into the sport for less than a year and both are competitive. Both have competed in Fredericksburg Archery Club tournaments and both have hunted. But getting started in archery was something that took them by surprise. Their gateway to the sport was their children. Ritter’s son, Kyle, was the initiator in their family, while Kammlah’s daughter, Sadie, 10, was the one to get the arrows flying. “It has been good for my son

and I,” Ritter said. “He’s 13 and sometimes 13 is hard to relate to as a mom. But we did a lot this summer together. We came up here quite a bit (to the shop’s range). It gave us some common ground and it helped our patience and with our ability to work through something. It gave us something to relate to with each other.” Since then, Ritter picked up the bow and now her husband, Eric, has also been bitten by the archery bug. Although busy with football, Kyle still asks to go to the bow shop some afternoons. “Anytime he doesn’t have something scheduled, that’s what he wants to do. He wants to come here, even though we have a place to shoot a bow at home,” Ritter said. At the shop/indoor range, there are lots of products and toys, but there’s also potential coaching and camaraderie among other young shooters. For Kammlah, daughter Sadie has been her reason for picking up the sport. Once they brought Sadie (then nine years old) into the store for an introduction to archery, “it came to her naturally. She really just took to it,” Kammlah said. “She is a true competitor.” Although Kammlah’s husband, Kris, is a hunter, the couple’s other child, Colton, 11, is now tentatively picking up the bow after having attended several tournaments in which his little sister was competing. “I think archery is a good thing for children because it teaches them patience,” Kammlah said. “We’re kind of in an era of instant gratitification

AMID ARROWS FLYING, Fredericksburg residents Kris Ritter (left) and Sarah Kammlah have become friends after both adopted archery as a hobby when their children showed an initial interest in the sport. They

and ‘the now’.” When her daughter first went to a deer blind, she didn’t understand why deer didn’t immediately show up when the feeder went off. “Well, that’s TV editing, for you,” Kammlah explained. “Nature doesn’t just come at the click of a mouse.” Their children even participated in a tournament over the summer at the shop, with prizes for age group winners. But, it’s now their mothers — one a tomboy and one a girly-girl — who meet there frequently for a few practice rounds they define as therapeutic. “My son just wants to hunt, but, for me, I would love to go down a competition avenue,” Ritter said, adding that the thrill of a target shoot takes the killing away, but still offers the suspense of hunting (especially in a tournament using 3D pop-up targets.) But target shooting in a tournament is not as easy as it may sound, Ritter said. “You’re under a time restraint so you’ve got 10 seconds to shoot the target at different ranges. And, you’ve got an audience standing behind you — anywhere from one to two to 50 to 100 people standing be-

hind you watching. The pressure is definitely on,” she said. Practicing to hone her tournament performance, Ritter has a range at home upon which she shoots on a 20-yard range. “I will then reposition my targets to shoot them from different angles,” she said. But, it seems to be time spent at the range that has helped her forge friendships with other powder-puff archers as they bring their families into the mix. “Larry has made it so comfortable here,” Ritter said, adding that women aren’t made to feel like they are encroaching on the “boy’s club” by hanging out at the range. What they have found is a welcoming community. “People are not secretive about the sport. They want to give you tutorials on how to

do something correctly,” Kammlah said. “There’s usually someone talking to Larry, but he always stops what he’s doing and talks to everyone,” Kammlah said. “Larry is a huge supporter of archery,” she added. “He just wants everyone to have fun. He’s not super competitive.” “When someone is really enthusiastic about something, like Larry is, it’s infectious,” Kammlah said. And, “when you’re enthusiastic about something, you want to share it,” she said, adding that any woman who would like to come and just try archery out is welcome to call either her or Ritter. “We’d be more than happy to meet them up here at the range.” Those interested can call Ritter at 456-8328 or 997-0983 or Kammlah at 285-0477.

Doors open at 5:00 and show time is 6:30 each night.

few reports of any significant adult mortality related to the drought.” The Texas deer hunting season opened Saturday, Sept. 29, for bow hunting and will open Saturday, Nov. 3 for the general gun season after a special youth-only weekend season on Oct. 27-28. The general season runs through Jan. 6 in North Texas and Jan. 20 in South Texas. A late youth-only season is also slated for Jan. 7-20. For additional late season deer hunting opportunities, consult the 2012-13 Outdoor Annual of hunting and fishing regulations. “Whenever a wildlife biologist talks about hunting prospects, weather is the ca-

veat. It’s the one variable that land managers, biologists and hunters have no control over, yet it plays a critical part of the hunting equation,” Cain said. “Couple the results of good management, lower harvest in 2011 and some late winter and spring precipitation and the stage is set for a good deer season in 2012.” TPWD Big Game Harvest survey results confirmed that the 2011 deer harvest was down compared to 2010. Last year’s estimated harvest was 574,808 white-tailed deer; 309,207 being bucks and 265,601 antlerless deer, while the 2010 season’s harvest was estimated at 647,975 deer; 336,550 being bucks and 311,425 antlerless deer.

The 11-year average for annual total harvest is 574,423 deer with the lowest estimated harvest occurring during the 2007-08 season with an estimated 512,852 deer. “Winter and spring moisture was much better compared to last year, and most of the state has received much-needed rain this spring to boost forage resources needed for antler development and fawn rearing,” Cain said. The abundant forage, critical to help deer meet nutritional demands, will help to bolster fawn production as well as antler quality. Late summer rains should help bucks bulk up and insure good fat reserves to make it through the rigors of rut and

improve overall survival this winter. The only downside to the late summer rains is deer may not readily come to feeders or food plots early this fall so hunters may have to change up their strategies to bag a deer during the first weekend or two of general season. Hunters can expect to see fewer bucks in the 1½-yearold age class as fawn production was very low across many regions of the state in 2011. However, good fawn crops in 2005, 2007 and 2010 should translate into more bucks in the 7½, 5½, and 2½-year-old age classes as compared to other age classes. “Hopefully, hunters will find what they’re looking for this

fall,” Cain said. “I’ve already seen pictures of an eight-point harvested in Bandera County this year that scored on the 159 Boone & Crockett scoring system, maybe sign of good things to come this season. Keep in mind this is well above the average antler quality for bucks 6½ years of age or older.” Based on over 30 years of TPWD’s age and antler data, the average estimated B&C score for 6½-year-old or older bucks is 125.34. The South Texas and Eastern Rolling Plains regions have the highest estimated average B&C scores for bucks 6½ or older at 134.59 and 129.82, respectively. The remaining regions pro-

duce great quality mature bucks with estimated average B&C scores in the low to mid 120s. “As always we encourage hunters to harvest antlerless deer to help with overall population management, which is an important component to maintain quality native habitats for all wildlife,” Cain said. He said, “One thing for sure is that we are blessed with the largest white-tailed deer herd in the nation, approximately 3.3 million deer, and opportunity can be found in nearly every region of the state. So don’t sit on the couch this fall watching the hunting shows, get outdoors and be a part of what will hopefully prove to be a great deer season.”

Patterson to sign copies of new book At Vereins Kirche on Nov. 10 Texas Hill Country author Becky Patterson will be at the Vereins Kirche on Saturday, Nov. 10, to sign copies of her latest book, The Ranch That Was Us, from 2-4 p.m. The book is available for purchase at Pioneer Museum, 325 West Main Street, as well as at the Vereins Kirche. Braiding strands of earthen insight with uproarious storytelling, Patterson recreates the history of the Stieler Hill Ranch in the 24 ancedotal chapters of The Ranch That Was Us. The book is also interspersed with Patterson’s original artwork. Patterson, the daughter of Texas folk hero and self-proclaimed mayor of Luckenbach, Hondo Crouch and Schatzie Crouch, has big shoes to fill, and she does so successfully in this colorful collection of Hill Country and Texas ranch vignettes, explained a spokesman. Patterson is also the granddaughter of Adolf Stieler,

“goat king of Texas,” and grew up in the Texas Hill Country on the Stieler Ranch. The ranch foreman and general cowboy Raymond Kuhlmann tell stories of the Goat King and German drinking songs, the buzzard traps and Mexican corridos that filled the nighttime pastures. First-person accounts and historical narratives evoke the ranch’s past overlaid with Patterson’s breathless personal histories of afternoon rescues of wildlife, the spokesman explained. This is a book that will connect readers to whatever patch of earth they hold dear, the spokesman said. “It is a poignant reminder of the landscapes we’ve for-

gotten to keep close and of the land that does not belong to us but simply is who we are,” the spokesman said. “ T h e Ranch That Was Us is an affectionate reminder to go outside and touch the earth that is you as written by Willie Nelson, a personal friend of the family, in his foreword to the book,” the spokesman said. Readers will identify their memories of shearing time, ranching, taming land and livestock with the memories of Schatzie Crouch and other family members. In 1960, Schatzie Crouch was president of the Gillespie County Historical Society and was honored in 2002 with the Texas Star Award from the state of Texas and the Gillespie

County Historical Society in appreciation for her labors, achievements and contributions to preserving Texas historical culture. Becky Crouch Patterson is the author of the best seller, Hondo, My Father, a memoir of life with her folk-hero father, Hondo Crouch. A textile artist for more than 40 years, Patterson has sewn appliquéd tapestries for many business and individuals. She is also a liturgical artist and designer and has created stained glass windows and furnishings for churches throughout Texas. She is the owner, with her sons, Kit and Sky Patterson, of Stieler Hill Ranch, near Comfort, where Sky is an artist and Kit continues the family’s 135 years of ranching. Patterson helps out with the activities of the ranch, including the Texican Single Action Shooting Society, the hunters, art workshops and her husband, Oscar Barrales’ horse training business.

Influenza vaccine covers new strains Baylor professor encourages vaccinations This year’s influenza vaccine has changed to cover new strains expected to be active this season, according to experts at Baylor College of Medicine. “The new strains in the vaccine are based on the strains that circulated in the Southern Hemisphere that are expected to be prevalent in the Northern Hemisphere this winter,” said Dr. Flor Muñoz, assistant professor of pediatricsinfectious diseases at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital. This year’s flu vaccine covers the same 2009 H1N1 influenza A strain that continues to circulate since the pandemic, but will include a new H3N2 influenza A strain as well as a new B strain, Muñoz said. It is important to receive this year’s vaccine to be protected against the flu. According to Muñoz, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations indicate that everyone six months of age and older should get vaccinated against influenza. Influenza vaccines are avail-

able in the form of a shot given in the muscle and a nasal spray. Healthy persons between the ages of two and 49 years have the option of getting the nasal spray instead of the shot, but anyone with underlying health conditions needs to get the shot. Because the vaccine is currently readily available and it takes about one to two weeks to have full protection against influenza, it’s recommended that people get vaccinated now. Children between six months and eight years of age who have never been vaccinated before must get two doses of the vaccine within one month of one another to be fully protected. Children in that age group who were not completely immunized in the past must also get two doses this year to be fully protected. Muñoz recommends parents consult with their child’s pediatrician to see how many doses their child needs. For those who are hesitant about getting vaccinated, Mu-

Surles to give program for watercolor group The Guadalupe Watercolor Group will host abstract painter and retired art educator Judy Surles at its Tuesday, Nov. 13, meeting set for the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center in Kerrville. The public is invited to attend this 1 p.m. program. Surles, who earned a B.A.

and master’s degree in art education as well as degrees in interior design architecture, library science and English, will demonstrate surface treatments for water media working with acrylics. She will also paint over some old, failed watercolors that members can bring in.

ñoz emphasizes that the influenza vaccine is safe. Symptoms such as body aches and malaise are common after receiving the flu vaccine, but the influenza vaccine does not cause the flu. The vaccine has proven to be quite effective in preventing complications from the influenza virus, the doctor said. This is especially important for older adults and young children, who are more susceptible to severe complications if they get the flu, including hospitalization and death. Although some people may still get the flu after being vaccinated, the illness may be milder than it would be if they were not vaccinated. “Remember that getting vaccinated protects you and others around you, especially if you have a newborn infant or someone in your household who cannot be vaccinated. You will be protecting them by vaccinating everyone around them to prevent bringing the

Update on wind transmission Hill Country Memorial Auxiliary projects slated Nov. 8 at CTEC awards scholarships to employees Updates on industrial wind and transmission developments will be featured at an informational meeting hosted by Save Our Scenic Hill Country Environment (SOSHCE) at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8 at Central Texas Electric Cooperative Community Room, 386 Friendship Lane. “The presentations are consistent with SOSHCE’s ongoing efforts to actively monitor industrial wind and transmission developments and to help keep landowners, public officials and others informed,” said Robert Weatherford, president. “The meeting is timely as it will follow

the presidential election and as the candidates have taken opposing positions regarding the extension of the federal production tax credit for industrial wind.” In addition to discussing the federal subsidy issue, updates will be provided on wind development activities across the state, he said. Transmission developments will be presented as well. An update on the status of the construction of the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) transmission lines will be covered. Those lines include the high voltage line that is being built along Interstate 10 through the Kerrville and Junction areas. SOSHCE’s on-going efforts to monitor transmission planning activities will be covered. These efforts

Enchanted Rock site of ‘Dark Sky’ meeting Enchanted Rock State Natural Area will be the site of a “Better Lights for Starry Nights” program, Thursday, Nov. 15, from 6:30-10 p.m. The program will be held at the group pavilion, an open air facility. Attendees should bring blankets and Thermoses with their favorite hot beverage, said Melissa Mial, Enchanted Rock SNA ranger. The program is free and open to the public, and children are welcome to attend. Bill Wren of the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis will share his expertise on the value of protecting starry skies, plus strategies to do so, Mial said. Wren, who one fellow astronomer calls “the Godfather of Dark Skies,” spreads the message that “less is more” where light is concerned. Wren stresses that the light source isn’t the critical issue, but what matters is where the light goes when it leaves the fixture. He advocates for well-designed, shielded or full cut-off fixtures to prevent light from spraying above the fixture’s horizontal plane and into the sky. Combining full cut-off fixtures with lower-wattage lighting can yield the same amount of illumination for about half the electricity cost, he said. In a recent article in Texas Coop Magazine, Wren said the biggest fear he has to overcome is that people think he wants “to chain myself to the nearest lamp post and never let them turn it on.” After reassuring governmental bodies that he really does want them to have lights, Wren cuts to the cost and energy savings — music to the ears of any city council trying to balance a budget, he said. Other topics include: • Money-saving tips and how to fix wasteful outdoor lights at a residence, ranch, neighborhood and commu-

nity. • Sports fields, commercial buildings and schools and effective lighting techniques that reduce light spread. • Star gazing after the program with the San Antonio League of Sidewalk Astronomers (weather permitting). “Enchanted Rock SNA is making the switch to dark sky friendly lighting in time for the program,” said Ray Sierra, superintendent. Friends of Enchanted Rock, the Hill Country Land Trust, Hill Country Alliance and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will co-sponsor the event, along with Kyle Biedermann’s Ace Hardware. Biedermann will offer tips on lighting for homeowners and businesses to make a switch to more “skyfriendly” fixtures. More information about the program is available by visiting

include following near term activities that could impact the Hill Country area. The 20-year-long term study that is being conducted by ERCOT, the grid operator for most of Texas, will also be addressed with particular emphasis on potential impacts on this area. The featured presentations will be preceded by a brief annual meeting of the SOSHCE organization which will include election of six directors and submittal of an annual report, summarizing key activities for the past year. Soft drinks will be served. More information on SOSHCE can be found on the group’s website,, or by contacting Weatherford at 830-6853063 or rweatherford@ctesc. net.

Comptroller offers matching scholarships, tuition grants to students in ‘prepaid’ plan

Hill Country Astronomers to hear talk on astrophotography The Hill Country Astronomers will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 at the Hill Country University Center to hear member Ken Kattner give a program on how he images celestial objects, using his observatory near Putnam Mountain, northwest of Fredericksburg. “One of the aspects of amateur astronomy is taking photographs of objects through a telescope,” said Jason Fry, HCA president. “With new technology, it’s even possible to engage in this activity from a different location from the telescope — ‘remotely.’” This local group of those interested in amateur astronomy from Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Harper, Johnson City, Blanco and the surrounding area meet on the first Monday of each month and periodically out under the night sky to observe through telescopes. “All these gatherings and activities are open to anyone interested in learning about the night sky,” Fry said.

There is a new way to save for a child’s college tuition. To encourage families to put aside money for the cost of higher education, the Texas Comptroller’s office is offering competitive matching scholarships and tuition grants to 150 students this year through the Texas Match the Promise Foundation. The matching scholarships and tuition grants are available for sixth through ninth graders whose families have an income of $75,000 or less and participate in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund (TTPF) — the state’s prepaid college tuition plan. Families participating in TTPF purchase prepaid “tuition units” that can later be used toward undergraduate tuition and required fees at Texas public colleges and universities. Match the Promise will

award tuition units to approved recipients, supplementing what a TTPF participant contributes to their account. There are two levels of scholarships: a match of up to $500 worth of the same number and type of tuition units a participant purchases, and a one-time grant of tuition units worth $2,000 at today’s prices. The matching scholarships will be approved for up to 150 top scoring applicants. The five applicants who score the highest will receive the one-time grant. (A minimum of $100 must be contributed to an approved recipient’s TTPF account to receive a matching scholar­ ship or grant.) Eligible applicants can apply for Match the Promise now through Dec. 31, 2012. Families can also enroll in

TTPF during this time if they haven’t already done so. Students must write a career essay and submit a copy of their 2011-12 school report card or transcript with the scholarship application. Scholarship winners will be notified by March 31, 2013, and will have until Aug. 31, 2013, to meet contribution requirements. Funding information For more information, go to www.MatchThePromise. org or call 1-800-531-5441, ext. 3-7570. Match the Promise is funded by individuals who have donated the cash value of property held in the state’s Unclaimed Property program, as well as donations from individuals, businesses and organizations through the state’s website at tolapp/txsmp/

Local DRT chapter urges ‘Operation Orphans’ gives area hunting opportunities public to fly Texas flags HUNTING SEASON

Now in its 52nd year, the “Take a Child Hunting” program will again offer hunting opportunities for boys and girls from child care facilities around Texas. Four dates have been selected for doe hunts for the “Take a Child Hunting” program by the board of directors of Operation Orphans, Inc. Hunts for boys have been scheduled for Nov. 17, Dec. 1 and Jan. 12. A hunt for girls was held on Oct. 27. To date, Operation Orphans, Inc., has hosted 17,533 youngsters with a total game harvest of 17,184 animals. Interested individuals are encouraged to visit the Operation Orphans, Inc. website for information and videos of the program (www.operationorphans. org). During the “Take a Child Hunting” program, landowners from the surrounding Hill Country allow children from child care facilities to harvest deer from their property, explained camp supervisors, Jerry and Lyla Crouch. Ranchers use the “Take a Child Hunting” program as a means to reduce the over-population of does and to get buckto-doe ratios in order. Landowners and hunters also participate in this program to help educate youngsters about the outdoors and provide a worthwhile outdoor adventure field trip, the Crouches said. A summer fishing program was added in 2004. Operation Orphans, Inc., provides the children with guides and food. The guides which Operation Orphans, Inc. provide have successfully completed the Hunter Safety Course. Some landowners wish to provide their own guides. One guide in assigned to each child. During the girl’s hunt, a woman or a man/woman team serve as guides.

All guides will have a background check. The meat which the childcare facilities receive from these hunts helps to relieve some of the burden of their rising food costs for the year, according to the camp supervisors. Some people use the meat in their outreach program. It all began when the late Gene Ashby, a state game warden, realized the Hill Country, primarily Mason and Llano counties, had an excessive deer population and needed a means to reduce the deer numbers. He approached some local ranchers with the idea of allowing orphans to harvest antlerless deer. They liked the idea, and Operation Orphans, Inc. came into being. Housing the young hunters was a problem, so another idea was realized, according to the camp supervisors. With backing from sportsmen’s clubs throughout Texas and other concerned individuals, a 320-acre tract of land on the north bank of the Llano River in Mason County was purchased from a landowner at a fraction of its market value. Through donations, a kitchen/dining hall, three dormitories, showering facility and basketball court were built. In 1994, an orientation and recreational building, The Milton and Janie Jordan Building, was constructed. It includes a clothing room which allows the kids to obtain boots, coats, jeans and other clothing items that are donated by concerned individuals. The camp is managed by a supervisor who resides at the camp. Camp Gene Ashby, named in honor of the founder of Operation Orphans, is today a facility capable of housing and feeding 250 visitors. During the first 20 years of the program, only boys were al-

The Dr. Wilhelm Keidel Chapter, Fredericksburg, of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) invites and encourages citizens to fly the Texas flag on two upcoming Texas Honor Days. Saturday, Nov. 3, is Stephen F. Austin’s birthday and Tuesday, Nov. 6, is DRT Founders Day. Born in 1793, Austin is known as the “Father of Texas.” He carried on the work of his father, Moses Austin, to establish the first Texas Anglo-American colony by bringing 300 families to a part of Mexico in what is now known as Texas.  Referred to as  “The Old 300,” they settled along the bottomlands of the Brazos, Colorado and San Bernard Rivers. The organization was chartered in 1895 and currently has 7,000 members within 106 chapters.  Any woman is eligible for membership provided she is a lineal descendant of a man or woman who rendered loyal service for Texas prior to the consummation of the Annexation Agreement of the Republic of Texas with the United States of America on Feb. 19, 1846. One of the treasures of the DRT is the Re-

lowed to hunt. In 1980, a girl’s hunt was added. Boys and girls fishing days were started in 2004. Many volunteer organizations assist with the hunting and fishing programs. Several service organizations and individuals prepare the Friday evening meals while others prepare the sack lunches for the children and guides during the hunts. Individuals who lease property for hunting may also participate by hosting a child, giving up one day and one deer for the benefit of allowing more children to participate in the outdoor activity, according to the Crouches. The children arrive at Camp Gene Ashby from homes throughout Texas on the Friday preceding the Saturday hunt. The youngsters will attend an orientation and safety meeting and will be given an opportunity to visit the “Boot Room” where they can obtain booths and other clothing which will be theirs to keep. They will be housed, fed and transported to the host ranches before daylight the following morning by guides from various Texas sporting clubs and other interested individuals. Operation Orphans, Inc. is a non-profit organization made up of a board of directors whose sole purpose is to serve less fortunate youngsters by offering them a positive outdoor experience, Crouch said. Any persons who are interested in assisting with the “Take a Child Hunting” program, are asked to contact the camp supervisors at 325-347-6745; write Operation Orphans, Inc., P.O. Box 535, Mason, Texas 76856, or email Persons interested in guiding are asked to contact director Bob Moore at 903-258-4366 or email fiddler22243@juno. com.

public of Texas Museum. Founded in 1903, it was once housed at the State Capitol, and in 1916 was moved to the Old Land Office. In the early 1990s, it was transferred to its current location at 510 East Anderson Lane in Austin.  The Republic of Texas Museum is an invaluable tool for teaching visitors of all ages about the unique history of the Republic of Texas, explained a spokesman for the DRT. The DRT is currently raising funds to move the museum to a more accessible and historical setting — on historic Robertson Hill near the French Legation Museum between the State Capitol and the State Cemetery.

‘Global Islam’ topic for new TTU history class Texas Tech University will be offering a new history course at the Hill Country University Center in Fredericksburg and the Frank Fickett Education Center in Marble Falls starting in January “Global Islam: Past and Present” (HIST 4385) will offer both current TTU students and visiting students from the Hill Country an opportunity to learn more about Islam, not just as a religion, but also as a global phenomenon that has a wide-reaching impact on issues around the world, explained Jerrie Dooley, senior academic advisor at Texas Tech. In the job market, an understanding of Islam is valuable as major U.S. companies, such as Halliburton, have moved their international headquarters to the Arabian Peninsula, Dooley explained. Dr. Keith King, who has

taught a number of United States history courses at the Hill Country TTU campuses, will again bring his broad knowledge and expertise to present this new course, Dooley said. King has been teaching history in colleges and universities for 40 years. He holds advanced degrees, including a PhD in American History with minors in the history of religion and the British Empire. Current students attending the Fredericksburg and Highland Lakes sites may register for the class beginning Thursday, Nov. 1. Non-TTU students may apply for admission as transient students at Total tuition and fees run about $1,200, but students who are 55 years and older are eligible for a waiver of the

tuition part. The class meets every Wednesday from 6-8:50 p. m. beginning Jan. 16 and ending May 1. The Hill University Center in Fredericksburg is located at 2818 East U.S. Highway 290. The education center in Marble Falls is located at 806 Steve Hawkins Parkway. For more information on this class or other TTU programs offered in the Hill Country, call 830-990-2717.

First Friday Lunch to salute Gillespie County’s veterans “Throughout our country’s history, it has been our military’s service and sacrifice that has guaranteed our freedoms, including our right to vote in the national election on Nov. 6,” said Food Ministry founder, Catharine Vinson. “Although the nation’s official Veterans Day is Nov .11, we are grateful for our military’s service every day of the year and hope many of our regular lunch attendees invite a veteran or other member of the Armed Forces to lunch as their guests.” Representing Gillespie County Veterans Service Office, Lt. Commander Tami King, U.S. Navy (ret.), will kick off the lunch by acknowledging all the members of the Armed Forces — past and present — attending the lunch. She will also briefly discuss services available to veterans through her office. The Gillespie County Veterans Service Office is responsible for assisting veterans and their dependents who reside locally in obtaining legal benefits available to them under U.S. federal and state laws. There is no charge for services and the office does not adjudicate claims. Approximately 1,000 clients are seen each year.

Some 3,200 military veterans are registered and receiving VA benefits in Gillespie County, King said. “This number does not account for many veterans who are not using VA benefits, and also the approximately 800 surviving spouses of veterans. Approximately 14 percent of the population of Gillespie County is veterans.” Local veterans and surviving spouses receive an estimated $6,888,000 per year in compensation and pension payments, King said. Following her opening remarks, lunch of a “purely American” menu will be served. Included will be baked, whole spiral cut hams with a ginger glaze, almond-crusted mac ‘n’ cheese, roasted broccoli crowns, Thomas Jefferson’s sweet potato biscuits, and a salad of fall greens with a maple-mustard vinaigrette. For dessert, there will be warm apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Vinson commented that the choice to include Jefferson’s sweet potato biscuits was not accidental. The first Continental Congress held in Philadelphia from Sept. 5 to late October, 1774, brought together delegates from 12 of the 13 colonies. The 55 delegates, most of whom were strangers to one another, included the framers and architects of the United States. With varying opinions and personalities, discussions became heated and, at one point, the delegates were ready to “pack it in and go home” but Jefferson served platters of piping hot sweet potato biscuits to revive everyone’s spirits and the delegates stayed on task. “We’re serving biscuits from that very same recipe at our Nov. 2 First Friday lunch honoring the men and women who have served our country in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf,” Vinson said.

FSOWW offers wounded warriors at Brooke Army Medical Center and Fort Hood’s Warrior Transition Brigade outings to Fredericksburg for a “Day on the Town” with their families throughout the year. FOSWW representative Bob Hickerson has confirmed that there will be Wounded Warriors in attendance at the lunch. The National Museum of the Pacific War is the only institution in the continental United States dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific Theater battles of World War II. Richard Koone, education director of the museum, will also be an honored guest, dressed in an authentic World War II uniform and providing a few remarks.


“Active duty, veterans and wounded warriors continue the commitment to freedom that sparked in Carpenter’s Hall in Philadelphia some 238 years ago,” she said.

Schreiner to honor veterans on Nov. 9 New exhibit to showcase women in Marine Corps Schreiner University will celebrate Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 9, with two events. War veterans who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam will be honored on the Schreiner campus with a Veterans Memorial Wall, and students and residents will be able to experience what life was like for women in the Marine Corps by visiting an exhibit at Schreiner Mansion. Paying tribute to Schreiner veterans Former Schreiner students who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam will honored for their service at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 9, when the new Veterans Memorial Wall is unveiled in The Commons at Schreiner University. The event is open to the public. “The idea of the Veterans Memorial Wall arose from the fact that we have had, for years, a modest alcove on that site housing two plaques recognizing Schreiner students

who had died in war service,” said Dr. Tim Summerlin, president of Schreiner University. “When we determined the Commons area would be our first major master plan project, we believed that a more suitable shrine for honoring these veterans should be a part of that project,” he said. James Avery, a long-time member of the Schreiner board of trustees and a veteran of World War II, was selected to design the Memorial Wall and also will speak at the event. “The plaques and men who served deserve attention,” said Lane Tait, assistant vice president of marketing. “This is our way of saying, ‘We’re never going to forget.’” For more information on the Memorial Wall dedication, call 792-7462.

ter in downtown Kerrville will host the Women of the Corps Collection exhibit, “More Than a Footnote: Women of the United States Marine Corps — Historical Perspectives” from Nov. 9 through Dec. 8. The mansion’s hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The exhibit’s opening reception is 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9. The reception is open to the public, but historic building occupancy regulations require reservations. To make reservations, call the Schreiner Mansion at 830896-8633. “It’s a powerful exhibit because it reflects the deep roots of the Kerrville community in the military,” said Charlie McCormick, provost and vice president of academic affairs Exhibit showcases women at Schreiner University. “This in the Marine Corps exhibit reflects, therefore, not The Schreiner Mansion His- just an interesting diversion, toric Site and Education Cen- but a celebration of the com-

munity’s experiences and personal history.” This major exhibit will feature an historical overview of each generation of the women of the Marine Corps including a look at their lives, occupations, accomplishments, styles of dress and grooming requirements, according to Nancy Wilt, Women Marines Association historian and exhibit curator. “Photos, uniforms, artifacts and memorabilia bring the collection to life and create a look at the fairly unknown women’s lives in the corps,” she said. “In our fast-paced, technology-based world, few understand how we have developed into the corps of today. Touring exhibits such as ours provide a look into the past, when the laws were much different and the rights of women not assured.” For more information on the mansion, visit or call 830896-8633.

Book review: Concussions and Our Kids by Robert Cantu, M.D., and Mark Hyman c.2012, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt $24 / $27.95 Canada 181 pages By Terri Schlichenmeyer Special to the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post

The game, as they say, is the thing. It’s the thing at your house, that’s for sure. Ever since your child’s friends started playing sports at school, it’s been the number-one topic around. He craves competition. She wants to sign up yesterday. He sees trophies and medals and honestly, you see them, too. After all, having a pro athlete in the family is a good thing, right? For your child, it’s all about the game. Still, you’ve got lots of reservations and, according to Robert Cantu, M.D., that’s great. In his new book Concussions and Our Kids (with Mark Hyman), you’ll see how competition is important, but it’s also potentially deadly. Playing a team sport was

Concussions and Our Kids

something you enjoyed as a child and you want the same thing for your kids, too, but you worry. Even though your young athlete denies it, you’ve seen enough accidents on the field to know there’s danger out there. Maybe you remember knocking noggins in a game yourself. You wonder: are your kids safe enough in today’s game? Maybe not. Sports, says Cantu, are the “second leading cause of traumatic brain injury” for youth ages 15-24. Every sport, no matter how little contact there is between players, has some risk and helmets aren’t always protection enough. That’s because a concussion can occur from something as minor as a hard bump or fall

that snaps a player’s head. Even if they’re expecting it, a tackle or body check can jostle a child’s brain enough to cause damage. If the player is under age 14, his muscles probably aren’t mature enough to withstand a blow. And if there are multiple injuries, the danger multiplies, too. To best protect your child, know the symptoms of concussion and be sure your child’s coach knows them, too. Don’t rely on helmets and don’t waste your money on fad fixes. Insist on a baseline brain test before the sports season begins. Lobby for less violence in children’s sports. “Calm down” and remember that the players are just kids.

And don’t accept “it’s not cool” as an excuse not to wear protective gear. That extra-padded helmet might not be “cool,” but neither is being in a coma. You wince. You gasp. You want to cover your eyes when your child takes a hit on the field, but you should never look away from the play. Read Concussions and Our Kids and learn why. Knowledge is key when it comes to head trauma, and authors Cantu and Hyman do a thorough job in preparing parents to be eagle-eyed on the subject. There’s a lot of information packed in this book, along with myth-busters, blunt words, worksheets, cautionary tales and one modern proverb that you can repeat to kids and coaches alike: “No head trauma is good head trauma.” There’s always another ball season around the bend but before you sign that permission slip, read this book. With Concussions and Our Kids and the knowledge you’ll gain, you’ll see that sports sometimes ain’t no game.

‘Complete Streets’ discussion slated for Nov. 7 A public meeting to help formulate a Complete Streets initiative for the City of Fredericksburg will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7 at Hill Country Memorial Wellness Center. Complete Streets are designed to accommodate cars, bikes and pedestrians, making transportation safe and acces-

sible for all. “Come and learn about different options and practices in use in cities around the world to create safer, more convenient pedestrian and bicycle routes,” John Watson said. “Share your opinions and experiences with us and have your say about bike facilities, sidewalks and trails

in our town. Show us which destinations around the city you would most like to walk or bike to.” Additional information is available from Walter Moldenhauer via email at or John Watson at and 998-4133.

This initiative is organized by Fredericksburg CARES (Community Awareness Regarding Environmental Solutions), a group of local citizens interested in making sustainable, environmentally-friendly changes in the community. Fredericksburg CARES is a 501(c)3 organization, founded in 2007.

A SHOUT OUT to the

Calls to local police jump to 162 in week Calls requiring assistance from the Fredericksburg Police Department (FPD) rose to 162 from Oct. 22-28. Shooting There was a self-inflicted accidental shooting on the east side of Walmart in the parking lot, 1435 East Main Street, at 12:40 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18. According to FPD Lieutenant Steve Wetz, the incident involved an employee of Walmart who was making his rounds in the parking lot picking up trash when he stopped at his vehicle, retrieved a pistol and, after walking to the back of the parking lot, accidentally discharged the firearm, striking himself in the arm. The person who accidentally shot himself then called the police for help, Wetz said. Out of respect for the privacy of victims and their families, this newspaper typically does not report incidents in which a person commits violence against oneself — accidental or intentional (suicides.) This brief, anonymous account is being provided, however, to help dispel a wide range of untruths that have been circulated in the community. Accidents According to Chief Paul Oestreich, officers with his depart-

ment responded to 11 motor vehicle accidents over the past week. All but one of the wrecks were eventually deemed “minor.” On Oct. 24, a five-vehicle accident was reported in the 600 block of West Main Street when one person driving down Main Street struck four parked vehicles. The driver was later transported to Hill Country Memorial for medical reasons. Thefts Investigators are also busy this week looking into seven cases of theft and five cases of shoplifting that were reported over the week by Walmart, where charges are pending against suspects. On Monday, Oct. 22, an officer was dispatched to Highland Oaks Apartments in reference to a stolen bicycle. On Wednesday, Oct. 24, theft of mail that was left in a carport was reported at a residence on Cross Mountain Drive. On the same day, Oct. 24, a complainant reported prescription medication was stolen from his/her vehicle. On Thursday, Oct. 25, a local convenience store reported a gas drive-off worth $40.04 in diesel fuel. On Saturday, Oct. 27, police took a call in reference to the theft of an Apple iPod, valued

at $450, as well as separate cases of $12 and $18 items shoplifted from a local store. And, on Sunday, Oct. 28, a complainant reported that there were items stolen from an estate sale. Arrests FPD officers arrested 12 individuals over the course of the week for the following offenses:

• 2 Driving While Intoxicated; • 2 Driving While Intoxicated 2nd Offense and Resist Arrest Search and Transport; • 1 Driving While License Invalid; • 1 Driving While License Invalid with Previous Conviction; • 1 Local Warrant; • 4 Public Intoxication, and, • 1 Public Intoxication/ Resist Arrest Search and Transport. Oct. 22-28 • 11 motor vehicle accidents (one major.) • 8 alarms. • 12 animal control calls. • 1 assault. • 4 civil disputes. • 5 criminal mischief cases. • 18 disturbances. • 4 emergency assists. • 5 harassment cases. • 6 reports of lost or stolen property. • 35 public relations calls. • 1 incident of recovered property. • 1 stolen bicycle. • 6 reports of suspicious activity. • 12 thefts. • 20 traffic hazards. • 7 welfare concern calls. • 6 miscellaneous.

Gillespie County Sheriff ’s report Officers with the Gillespie County Sheriff ’s Office (GCS) responded to 126 calls from Oct. 22-29. According to Chief Deputy Jim Judd, those calls included two burglaries, one theft and one assault. The assault was called in at 7:46 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23, when there was a “minor shoving match” that resulted in no injuries in the Stonewall area, Judd reported. A theft was called in to deputies at 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at a residence on Harrell Road in the Harper area. Reportedly, a suspect

or suspects entered the home through unlocked doors and took a number of household items, the value of which is still being tabulated. The burglaries involved one of a vehicle and one of a home, Judd said. The vehicle burglary happened on Monday, Oct. 22, at 12:04 p.m. in the 400 block of Kerr Road. The suspect or suspects entered an unlocked car and took a number of personal items of an unknown value from the vehicle. The second burglary was phoned in at 6:53 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, by a home-

SIGN THE PETITION ––––> Amend the charter! Here’s the problem: A City Hall summary of golf course operations for 1994-2013 shows that the golf course has been subsidized a total of over $6 MILLION. The Fredericksburg Standard was correct in stating that the nearly $2 million in utility fund transfers may only be the tip of the iceberg as an additional $2,750,000 was owed to Electrical Department. (September 12, 2012.) Now the total from all sources, not only utility funds, seems to be over $6 million. This pattern of redirecting reserves is being done without voter approval. Other examples: In this year’s budget a portion of the City Attorney’s salary and a “Committee for Economic Industry and Business Development” are also being funded with RESERVES from the Electrical Department.

MEANWHILE ... UTILITY RATES ARE HIKED! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Only a charter amendment can stop future abuses State law may allow such allocations but city residents do not have to tolerate it! Enterprise Funds include the Electric Department, the Water & Sewer Department, the Solid Waste Department and the Drainage Department. The difference in revenue collected and expenditures made in each of the four funds is called a reserve. In our opinion, Councils have historically used RESERVE funds to finance major projects and programs that should have been brought before the voters for approval. A charter amendment can make that a requirement. In 1991, Fredericksburg residents voted to become a Home Rule Charter City as opposed to a General Law City. General Law Cities are governed by what the state dictates they may do. Home Rule Charter Cities may do anything not prohibited by the state or their Home Rule Charter. This is why city councils may allocate reserve funds in any way they deem appropriate, unless the charter imposes some controls. WE CAN FIX THIS WITH AN AMENDMENT TO OUR HOME RULE CHARTER Under Texas law, citizen sponsored amendments to the Home Rule Charter require submission of a petition signed by 5% of qualified voters.

Rusche and others also were busy keeping a level of decorum for some who politicked while in line for early voting. One man came in with a Tshirt that sported a derogatory message about the president, and the clerks made him turn it inside out. “We can’t have messages like that,” the voter was told. Several other incidences of

He added, “We are so proud of how the community supports this event and it’s important that we provide a good value for the money.” The event will see an increased number of guns avail-

able at the auction, up from 35 to 45 this year.

“mountain oysters.” Former Texas State and World Champion auctioneers Craig and Angie Meier will return to lead the auction. “As ranchers with ties to Fredericksburg, they take time out of their busy schedules to help us and it’s so much fun to watch them work,” board member Billy Teague said. “I don’t know how they can do what they do with their voices and still talk so fast. It’s amazing.” More information about the upcoming annual Wild Game Dinner at the fair grounds is available from Lehne at 997-5508, Christie Mohr at 456-5003 or via email at

FHS Band



The decision that the FHS Band was the best was universal with a “1” ranking coming from each judge. The closest band, Rio Hondo, which earned secondplace in the finals had a total score of 15. The other three bands to qualify for state included: Port Isabel (21), Rio Grande City Grulla (25) and Hidalgo (29). Bands ending their season at the area finals round were: Stafford (30), Boerne (32), Crystal City (35), Kinsgville H.M. King (40) and La Vernia (43). Fredericksburg won the favor of the judges, who commented: “Very strong fundamentals shown. Great individual effort and execution. Well planned drill and excellent presentation. Very nice color guard. Congrats to all!” stated George Strickland, a marching judge. The other marching judge, Don Thoede, said, “Oustanding job of marching tonight! Way to go band! Wow! I am impressed! You should be very proud of yourselves. Be sure to thank your fine teachers. Congratulations!” The three music judges included Wade McDonald, Paul Fullerton and James Marioneaux. “Beautiful sounds brass and woodwinds! Very nice colors! Good tough book from percussion. Very well done musically,” said McDonald. “Mature sounds throughout all sections. You have excellent command of your music,” commented Fullerton, while Marioneaux cited “great” performances by winds and per-

awards for Outstanding Percussion and Outstanding Color Guard. At Harlandale, Fredericksburg also gathered another straight “1” performance (the only band in its division to do so,) for first place, as well as trophies for Outstanding Percussion, Outstanding Color Guard, Outstanding Brass and Outstanding Woodwind. Before the state show Prior to Monday’s state appearance, the band will travel to San Antonio’s East Central High School to compete in the U.S. Band Texas State Championships. The FHS Band will compete in a field of eight other groups in Class 4 Open, which is grouped together based on band size, not UIL classification.

cussion, as well as, “What a beautiful vocal soloist. Great job with dynamics.” Winning To reach area, the FHS Band had qualified for advancement by winning first place with a perfect, across-the-board first division rating at the UIL Region XI 3A Marching Contest held Saturday, Oct. 20, in Hondo. That day, they were competing against 27 bands from the southern part of Texas. To get ready for UIL competition, the band dominated in a double-header of marching contests on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Judson Rocket Review and the Harlandale High School Marching Contest, both in San Antonio. At Judson’s contest, the Billie Band received straight “1”s to win the Class-3A field, plus

In 1983, the band was second in Class-4A competition. In 1989, the band ranked third among 3A bands. In 1993, Fredericksburg placed fourth among 3A bands. And, in 2010, the band ranked 10th in state. Prior to the establishment of the UIL-sanctioned state contest, the FHS Band was named the 3A State Marching Band Champions in 1979.

THE ANGEL (Madison Grumbles) suddenly appears above a silky white cloud that covers most of the stadium’s midfield in the Fredericksburg High School Band’s contest production “Angels in the Architecture.” Grumbles is “wired” with a cordless microphone system that enables her to sing live while dancing to represent the light in the match between light-


by the wind as she struggled to hold it in place. She was a trooper and did an amazing job,” Rauschuber said. Of the remaining 3A bands, others that qualified for the finals (and their scores) included, in order: 2. Rio Hondo (23), 3. Stafford (28), 4. Rio Grande Grulle (28), 5. Port Isabel (29), 6. La Vernia (31), 7. Hidalgo (36), 8. Boerne (37), 9. Crystal City (42), and 10. Kingsville H.M. King (48). Bands not advancing to the area finals included: La Feria (50), Canyon (62), Pleasanton (71), Carrizo Springs (75), Ingleside (83), Rockport-Fulton (83), Orange Grove (92), Needville (93), Hondo (95), Columbia (95), Zapata (97), Sinton (98), Somerset (104), Sweeny (110), Robstown (112), El Campo (114) and Pearsall (135). “The staff and I agreed early last week that we would not tell the students what they were ranked after preliminaries,” Rauschuber said. “We wanted to make sure they remained focused going into the finals. We knew they were first in prelims with a sub-par performance (by our standards) and didn’t want the kids to settle and accept that. So, we focused on one judge’s rank (which was 13th in marching.) I showed them the video and played them the recorded comments from that judge. The staff then focused only on visual problems with the show and let them know that this one judge did not think they were worthy of being in finals based on their preliminary performance.” “I asked them what they were going to do about that. I also reminded them that they all had individual visual assignments that must be performed to the best of their abilities” Rauschuber said. “I reminded them of what Coach Lance Moffett said a couple of weeks ago at a pep rally about us not needing luck for our performance. We only needed to do what we had been taught and to do it well. I let them know that was their job — to get on that field and do what they have been taught to do and to do it to the best of their ability,” he said. “If they came off the field feeling like they gave their best (even if they made mistakes,) I would be very proud of them,” Rauschuber said. The band didn’t disappoint. o m e Furn “The kids did in s H amazing is e’ their finals performance. Every aspect of the performance was better,” Rauschuber said. hi

The state itinerary calls for Hidalgo to kick off the contest at 9 a.m. and bands will appear every 15 minutes through 3:15 p.m. Following a 3:30 p.m. exhibition performance by the Texas A&M University-Commerce band, the bands who have earned a ticket to the state finals competition will be announced at 3:45 p.m. Marching in the finals will start at 6:15 p.m. in the same location. Fans of the Billie band are invited to show their support by dressing in red and being there to cheer on the local student musicians as they make a bid at the state title. (See separate story on A19 for ticketing information.) The show The FHS Band’s contest show this year is titled “Angels in the Architecture” based on the music of Frank Ticheli, led on field by drum majors Josh Sanchez, Karson Melcer and Ariana Detmar. Unlike previous years, the production employs a large prop — a tall, glittery backdrop stage that stretches across the middle of the football field upon which the “angel” (performed by FHS junior, Madison Grumbles) sings live via wireless microphone system that allows for her freedom of movement for dancing. The music weaves a tale of the inherent struggle between lightness and darkness. “This year’s show is just as hard as any Class 5A band show,” said FHS Head Band Director John Rauschuber this week. “I think what is so attractive about this show is that it is a complete, total package. It has amazing music, difficult drill, great choreography for the color guard and is performed at a high level of achievement,” he said. John Meehan of JKS Music arranged the music for the show and it is complimented by a custom drill written by Richard Lopez of Performer’s Academy, based in San Antonio. Lopez and Rauschuber collaborated to come up with the idea for the stage’s architecture and the employment of a massive white silk rippling “cloud” bank that stretches out at the feet of an elevated angel at the conclusion of the show. The color guard’s choreography was custom written by Ali Martinez of San Antonio. Taking their works and blending them into an awardwinning show is an ever-evolving process and Rauschuber said the band will continue to be hard at work this week polishing up for a final push at the state title. “Angels in the Architecture” was originally performed by the FHS Wind Ensemble for UIL competition last year, when it won the band the title of Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) 3A State Honor Band. UIL Area E 3A Champions The FHS Band earned a perfect score to top a field of 27 bands during the UIL Area E Class-3A Marching Contest held Saturday, Oct. 27, at Calallen High School’s Wildcat Stadium in Corpus Christi. In the preliminary rounds, Fredericksburg’s musician marchers tallied a score of 19 from a panel of five judges, three who evaluated music and two who sized up the bands’ marching capabilities. With scores of 2, 1, 1, 13, 2, FHS tallied a total score of 19 to become the lowest score and the winner of preliminaries, heading into the finals competition later that same day. “The students were focused mentally going into the performance, but, unfortunately, the long bus ride left them stiff physically and they suffered in their visual performance throughout,” Rauschuber said. “Once they started making individual errors visually because of being stiff and slow, I think they started doubting themselves and made even more errors,” he said. In addition, gusty coastal winds proved problematic for the show, particularly at the point when the enormous white silk was “unveiled.” “Poor Hailey Harris was almost lifted off the ground

TRYING TO KEEP HIS BALANCE is Battlin’ Billie running back Brayden Beard during Friday night’s varsity football game with visiting Navarro. — Standard-Radio Post photo by Lisa Treiber-Walter

Billies to host defending state champs here Friday Fredericksburg High School’s football team will face what it aspires to be on Friday, when the Billies (4-5, 0-3) host defending Class 3A Champ Wimberley Texans (5-3, 3-0) at 7:30 p.m. “They’re kind of our measuring stick in regard to where we want our program to be,” said FHS Head Coach Lance Moffett. “One of our goals is to build a successful program like they have had.” Wimberley seems to be hitting its stride just as it nears the end of regular season play. The Texans struggled early on with losses to Giddings, Llano and Liberty Hill. Many wondered if the defending state champs would even contend for their district title. In the past three weeks, the Texans soundly beat Bandera 40-6, topped Geronimo Navarro 21-20 and destroyed Canyon Lake 40-3. Coach Weldon Nelms’ young Texans team is averaging 183 yards

FHS volleyball wins bi-district banner, headed next to area Pleasanton down, La Grange to go for 27-17 Billies By Danny Hirt With the exception of a few minor glitches, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team came out with guns blazing Tuesday night to defeat Pleasanton in three straight games — 25-9, 25-18, 25-14 — in Region IV, 3A bidistrict action to advance in the post-season playoffs. The Billies will now face the La Grange Leopards at 2 p.m. on Saturday in an area match-up that’ll be played at New Braunfels Canyon High School. Fredericksburg suffered a three-game loss against Alamo Heights, 18-25, 19-25, 18-25, in a warm-up contest played Friday in San Antonio. On Tuesday night against

Pleasanton, “We came out swinging to start the match, slowed down a bit in set two, but finished strong in set three,” said FHS head coach Jason Roemer. “Our middle blockers had a distinct advantage in the middle and we did a great job of using that to our strength.” Roemer cited the play of Trista Hartmann and Allie Doucet who, he said, “had a great night and the stats showed it. They combined for 18 kills and zero errors. Monica Montgomery did a great job of getting them the ball.” Roemer went on to praise the effort given by the serve receivers who “did a great job of passing. Payton Robertson made some incredible digs to keep the plays going. Tori Robertson did a great job of serving; she went back to serve in set one with a 16-9 lead and served us out, eight serves in a row with three aces Cont. on B8

passing per game and 160 on the ground. The Billies defenders will concern themselves with seniors Kolby Kelley, who has racked up 516 yards rushing and 413 receiving this season and receiver Bryce Rainwater, who has 355 yards receiving. Wimberley’s defense also has gotten more stingy as the season has progressed, led by two-way starter Alden Mann, one of the best linebackers in the league, who averages 12.8 tackles per game, including 69 solo tackles this season. Wimberley sits atop the District 27-3A standings at 3-0, followed by Navarro, Boerne and Canyon Lake at 2-1, with Fredericksburg and Bandera winless at 0-3. “I knew by this time of year, Wimberley would be rolling,” Moffett said. “Still, we’re not going to back down because we have lost three in a row Cont. on B3

Lions claw Harper, 40-2 Longhorns setting sail toward Center Point’s Pirates On a cold and windy Homecoming night on Friday, host Harper High School found itself on the wrong end of a 40-2 final score in District 14 1A varsity football action against Ozona. While the visiting Lions amassed nearly 400 yards of total offense, the Longhorns reached only 136 yards, with 135 of those coming from an 8-of-20 pass effort by quarterback Gus Sagraves. He also suffered five interceptions for the game. Sagraves’ top two receivers were Brayden Hagendorf with two receptions for 58 yards

and Caleb Schmerback who hauled in three aerials for 35 yards. The ’Horns will travel to Center Point this Friday in an effort to rise out of the league cellar. Both schools are currently tied at the district’s bottom spot in the standings at 0-3. The highlight of the weekend’s district action will be the showdown of the unbeatens when Mason travels to Brackett Friday evening. Each team enters the contest with identical 3-0 league marks. A win will give the victorious school a leg up in post-season posi-

tion in the playoffs. The Lions got on the scoreboard first with a touchdown in each of the first two periods and both coming as the result of 25-yard runs. The pointafter kicks were good, giving Ozona a 14-0 lead.

That initial touchdown was made by Adam Gonzales, who totaled three scores for the night. His other TDs were from runs of four yards and one yard, respectively. Harper received its only points of the night on a safety when a snap went high over the head of the Lion punter and rolled out of the end zone to pull the Longhorns to within 12 points (14-2) with 34 seconds remaining in the half. But Ozona made Harper pay for the Lions’ miscue when the visitors connected on a 37-yard pass from quarterback Jayton Rodriguez as time expired in the second period, giving them a 20-2 margin at intermission. Ozona wasted little time in reasserting itself in the third stanza, scoring two more touchdowns — on a 27-yard pass and a four-yard plunge — to build up a 34-2 advantage. An insurance TD was tacked on with less than 10 minutes to go in the contest on a oneyard plunge.

FHS JV, freshmen to play Wimberley this week eighth straight contest, defeating Navarro, 38-6, while the junior varsity fell to Navarro, 40-18. Junior Varsity Playing in a “hard-fought” game, the FHS junior varsity football team fell to Navarro, 40-18, on Thursday night on the road. “It was a hard-fought game where the Billies couldn’t get any breaks,” reported Coach Todd Doucet. He said that a touchdown early in the third quarter was called back due to holding, and a couple of holding calls


stopped a couple of “crucial” drives. “Wade Shepard was unstoppable all night as he caught several passes,” Doucet said. “Mark Rodriguez also had some outstanding catches.” Doucet added, “The offense had an outstanding night.” Outstanding offensive players, according to Doucet, were Lance Patteson, Jacob Hartmann, Bryce Johnston, Caleb O’Connel, Nathan Baca, Christian Ramirez, Justin Nebgen and Wade Shepard. Outstanding defensive players included Evan Bell, Luis Rubio, Josh Cleland, Nathan Brenner, Braden Bowers, Kyle Guynes, Isac Zumudio and Matthew Halderman.

FHS Stadium. “The guys came out and played a great first half of football that really allowed us to control the game early,” according to Coach Dusty Gibbs. “We played with a lot of energy right from the opening kickoff and that got us a win.” Gibbs said, “They have a ball control offense and our defense did a great job getting them off the field and allowing our offense several opportunities to score.” “The offensive line did a great job picking up their multiple stunts which allowed us to have some big plays in the passing and running game,” the coach reported. He added, “We look forward Navarro 40 — FHS JV 18 to playing Wimberley at home FHS JV 0 6 6 6 -- 18 this week.” Navarro 12 6 14 8 - - 40 Gibbs recognized Blake Moffett as a defensive standout FHS Freshmen Keeping their season perfect and Blake Vick as an offensive through eight games, the FHS standout.

night we had an opportunity to beat them, and just made a few too many unforced errors (particularly hitting) at critical times.” She added, “On a positive note, as a team we had 63 digs, so defensively we are doing the right things.” Next game: Monday, Nov. 5, Navarro, FMS Gym, 6 p.m. (last game of the season).

Coach’s comments: “The 8B team lost a hard match to Wimberley despite only three service errors in the entire match,” Coach Jennifer McBee reported. “All three misses came in the second set, so we served 100 percent in the first.” “Our performance at the line was the best it’s been all year, but we had too many hitting and serve-receive errors to come out with a win,” McBee said. She added, “We have one match left for the season. We will play Navarro at home on Monday.” Next game: Monday, Nov. 5, Navarro, FMS Gym, 5 p.m. (last game of the season).

“Offensively, we sputtered, committing four turnovers,” he said. “Defensively, I thought our kids played hard.

Of the six events run at Wednesday’s District 29-1A cross country meet held on the Harper High School campus, the host Longhorns captured five first place titles, including tops in both the varsity girls and boys divisions. As a result of their top showings, the varsity teams will advance to Saturday’s Region IV championships slated for San Antonio. The girls will run at 10 a.m., with the boys taking to the course at 10:20 a.m. The top three teams and top 10 individuals will move on to the state meet set for Round Rock on Saturday, Nov. 10. As a team, the girls’ varsity squad took top honors at the district event with a score of 23, well ahead of second place finisher Brackett (with 62 points). Four of the top finishers were from the Harper squad — Crystal Schlueter (second, 12:52), Payton Reid (third, 12:57), Kayla Inmon (fourth, 12:59) and Sydney Collins (fifth 13:09). For the boys’ varsity runners, Jacob Krebs finished first in a time of 18:00, while teammate Drew Stracke took fourth in 18:56. The Longhorn junior varsity teams also captured first place awards, as did the junior high boys’ team. The junior high girls’ squad earned third in its division.

Heritage hunting TAPPS title By Danny Hirt After months of practice in the hot sun of August, followed by the intense games of September and October, the TAPPS District 4, 1-A six-man championship boils down to one game on Nov. 2. Sporting identical 4-0 league marks, Heritage School travels to Seguin Lifegate Friday with the district title going to the winner. Regardless of the outcome,

however, both schools have already wrapped up post-season positions. In preparation of this week’s contest, Lifegate defeated Corpus Christi Annapolis 60-14 last Friday while the local Eagles enjoyed an open date during the school’s fall break.

Start of flu season means it’s time for shots With flu season officially underway, the Texas Department of State Health Services urges everyone at least six months old to get vaccinated. A vaccination now will provide protection through the flu season through May. “Flu is very unpredictable,” said DSHS Commissioner Dr. David Lakey. “We don’t know exactly what this flu season will look like, but we do know the flu is circulating in Texas

and getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your family.” The Centers for Disease Control says that children under age nine who are getting the flu vaccine for the first time should get two doses at least four weeks apart. The flu is caused by various influenza viruses. Symptoms include fever, coughing, sore throat, aches, chills and fatigue.

Most healthy people recover without problems, but people 65 and over, pregnant women, young children and people with chronic health conditions are at higher risk for serious complications and even death. The flu vaccine protects against three viruses and is reformulated each year to match the influenza viruses researchers expect. In addition to getting vaccinated, people should help


stop the spread of the flu and other illnesses by covering all coughs and sneezes, washing their hands frequently and staying home when sick. People can contact their health care provider, local health department or dial 2-1-1 to find out where to get a flu shot. Flu information and tips for protecting against the flu are at

Heritage’s Lady Eagles take tumble in playoffs In four close games that decided the area championship, the Heritage School volleyball team saw itself on the wrong side of three of those contests played Friday at Seguin Lifegate. After splitting the first two games by scores of 17-25 and 26-24, the Lady Eagles dropped the next two by scores of 21-25 and 20-25. Heritage had earlier advanced in the TAPPS postseason action by topping McAllen South Texas Christian in the bi-district round. “I am so proud of our Lady Eagles,” said head coach Carol Bell. “They have worked hard, fought all season, come from

behind in many matches, never gave up, encouraged one another, gave me 100 percent all the time, kept perfecting their skills, and showed heart and character throughout the season. While praising the entire team for a great effort, the Heritage mentor cited the play of Kami Jones “with the best offensive performance of the season with 17 kills and over 16 effective attacks.” Bell also mentioned the “precision setting” from Christina Harpold as well as front line attacks from Harpold, Jamie Hoermann, Lindsey Pressler and Sydney Richburg.

Set three, we started to a 15-5 lead and cruised to finish the night.” Going up against Leopards Roemer admitted that Saturday’s next series will not be easy for the Billies. “We will have our hands full in our area round match with La Grange,” he said. “They won their district and are a very talented team. We scouted them last Friday (and) we will have a good game plan going in.” But Roemer cautioned that it boils down to “a matter of executing the game plan and playing defense well enough to give us a chance at the end of each set. We are playing our best volleyball of the season right now.” Billies play warm-up game Playing a warm-up match on Friday night, the FHS varsity squad lost to San Antonio Alamo Heights in three, 25-18, 25-19, 25-18. “We played okay against a quality opponent,” Roemer said. “Warm-up matches are tough. You are excited about the playoffs, then you go play in a gym on a Friday afternoon with only parents and not too many people in the gym. It’s a weird deal.” He said, “We did not play with much intensity or the sense of urgency you need in playoff volleyball.” However, Roemer said he did see some good things. “They played at a fast pace and played good defense.

‘Make a soldier’ a card drive underway here The local community is being asked to reach out to a soldier and share a holiday greeting by writing out a Christmas card and putting it in one of a few drop boxes to be stationed around Fredericksburg. Among those allowing drop boxes to be stationed in their establishments are HEB, 407 South Adams Street, and the Fredericksburg StandardRadio Post, 712 West Main Street. Collections will be taken through Dec. 1, at which time

they will be shipped overseas to military units by local resident Jae Layton. Having been in the U.S. Army for four years herself, Layton said she realizes just how much a Christmas card from a stranger can mean to those serving far from their homes during the holidays.

COMMENTARY Be civil in voting line Acts meant to intimidate bring bad name to parties, process


t seems that politics — a necessary evil in steering our democratic process — brings out the worst in some. This newspaper has received letters and calls complaining of boorish behavior during this campaign season. One complained of a person who took it upon himself to curse out a resident that had a sign supporting a candidate he did not care for in front of their home. (She called the police.) Others have called about stolen or defaced yard signs. But some calls and emails were from locals who are afraid to write a letter to the editor for fear of retaliation. One caller said someone went into her yard and tried to place a candidate’s sign near the homeowner’s bedroom window. Two other women complained of abusive and racist language — directed against the president — while standing in or exiting the early voting line. After the first two days of early voting, signs were posted in the early voting line that read, “No political talk, please.” The vast majority has voted without incident, and we are appreciative of that. To those who wanted to make a fuss, we implore them to get over the tendency to try and direct the actions of every other voter. That’s a losing battle that will only further raise blood pressure. Some questions for those who do this type of thing: Whose vote do they think are changing by this type of behavior? Do they think they are a fine ambassador for their party? Lastly, do they wish to invite an investigation on charges of voter

intimidation? Also a note of caution: Saying the wrong thing to the wrong person might be considered fighting words. Going onto someone’s property to steal or deface a sign, or place a sign of the opposition candidate, might get you a backside full of buckshot — or worse. Many voters feel that the policies of President Barack Obama have contributed to the economic malaise, and that has driven many to the polls. Those feelings are perfectly legitimate and can be backed up by any number of arguments. But an Associated Press poll last week suggested a more sinister reason for driving some to the voting booth. The poll found that 52 percent of Americans harbor prejudicial feelings against blacks. (Poll results showed 48 percent in 2008.) At least one person in the local voting line confirmed that was a reason he was not voting for the president. It seems that for all the progress the nation has made on race issues, there are still periods where our society inches backward. Most voters, of all parties, have gone to the polls quietly and cast their votes without incident. We thank them for exercising their right to vote. For those few who have taken it upon themselves to try to intimidate others, we implore them to try a more constructive route to supporting their favored candidates. Like a schoolyard bully, they may not like it when they are held to account for their actions.

Shine a light on ‘Dark Sky’


hese days, not many people look at light fixtures and their effect on astronomy as a problem. But a “Better Lights for Starry Nights” program, set for Nov. 15 at the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, is an easy way locals can learn how to protect the beautiful Hill Country night skies with minimal changes and without any additional tax burden. Those who implement the suggested changes also will get a nice surprise in savings on their electric bill. Bill Wren of the McDonald Observatory will share his expertise on the importance of protecting the starry skies. Wren has been an astronomer at the observatory for more than 20 years. Like many of us, he developed an interest in looking at the stars as a child. He will do so with a gentle hand, eschewing the loaded phrase “light pollution” in favor of talking about the redirection of existing lights or using fixtures that are low-wattage or better directed so as not to bleed into the atmosphere. Anyone who has been to the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis appreciates the remote expanses of West Texas, called

the best place in the nation for viewing stars. Area ranch owners can experience many of the same great views, and an active Hill Country Astronomers group regularly takes field trips for “star parties.” Even people in their backyard in the middle of town have a better view of the stars than those in metropolitan areas. That is something to be valued. But the National Park Service has predicted that unless the current rate of growth for light escaping into the atmosphere is slowed, no dark skies will remain in the U.S. by the year 2025. That should cause concern, and learning what simple steps we can take to combat this is the first step. We appreciate the efforts of the sponsors of this program: Friends of Enchanted Rock, the Hill Country Land Trust, Hill Country Alliance, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and Biedermann’s Ace Hardware. Having more “sky-friendly” fixtures, or simply adjusting current fixtures, is a small thing we can do to protect the beautiful views of the cosmos in our Hill Country area.

Gun powder in her veins


’m not sure about any of you other deer hunters, but I’m ready for hunting season to begin this weekend. I sighted in my rifle last Saturday afternoon in a yearly ritual when siblings, nieces and nephews in my family gather out behind the garage the weekend before hunting season begins to shoot rifles, swap stories and plot our strategies for the first hunt of the season which arrives at the crack of dawn Saturday morning, Nov. 3. I’ve gotten used to the ribbing I receive from my brothers as they fire shot after shot at a target a distance away. I usually wait until last to take my turn since, as I joke with them, practicing will not make my shot any better. But since it was the first time to shoot my new rifle, a 223 I won at the Band Boosters turkey dinner year before last, I figured it might be best to take it for a “test spin,” since my brothers had shot it more than I had when they sighted it in. While they are checking the accuracy of their rifles, they “split hairs,” so to speak, if they are one-half inch to the left or right. For me, if I hit anywhere in the neighborhood of the three-inch black circle on the cardboard target, I’m delighted. As I remind them, with enough endurance, a blind hog will eventually find an acorn. When my turn finally came around Saturday afternoon, I took a deep breath, pulled − no, I squeezed − the trigger, hit the circle both times I fired and declared a victory. (I have to ration my ammo since I’ve spent more money on target

Time Pieces By Sherrie Geistweidt

shooting than actually shooting at wild game!) - - Coming from a family that spends a great deal of time hunting whitetail deer during the autumn months, it comes naturally that I also like to hunt. I joke that I was born with a sewing needle in my hand and gun powder in my veins. I’ve been sewing since I was a child, and going hunting equally as long. For my family, big game hunting has been a source of survival since my family settled in the Hill Country back in the 1800s. Like most ranchers in the Texas Hill Country, yes, we admire the antlers, but depend on venison “for the table” to keep the family fed throughout the year. I’ve spent countless hours over the years sitting at my “sanctuary”as I call it — an old dilapidated blind tucked away in one of the draws on the ranch. There’s no telling what might show up at my feeder to pick up the corn scattered underneath. In addition to white-tailed deer, I’ve watched raccoons, opossum, quail, foxes, feral hogs and birds of all kinds. One afternoon, I watched a flock of cranes circling overhead, looking for a spot to rest for the night while on their way

south for the winter months. Another time, I listened as a couple of foxes were barking back and forth across the draw. There’s also nothing more therapeutic than sitting on a mountaintop watching nature. It’s a reminder of how fortunate we are to live in the Texas Hill Country. One afternoon, as I sat at one of the blinds on the mountainside, I noticed that the deer grazing on the grass field were snorting and stamping their feet. A good distance away, peddling toward me along the fence line was a large bobcat minding his own business. I watched him for a long time, thinking he’d come close enough to get a shot, but instead, he turned and ducked into the persimmons, never to be seen again. - - Stepping back in time 50 years or so, hunters would have to wait two more weeks before hunting season opened. Yes, there was a time when the season opened on Nov. 16, no matter which day of the week it fell. And, many will remember that here in the Hill Country back in the early years, it was illegal to shoot spike bucks or does. And add to that the fact that there weren’t many deer, it was a challenge for a hunter to even see a legal buck to shoot. And, hunting was for the men of the family. The woman’s job was to prepare the venison — not harvest it. Speaking of the Nov. 16 opening day, all of the die-hard hunters planned their vacaCont. on D3

What’s your message in a bottle?


ne of the benefits of reaching middle age is that experience rewards even the most obtuse among us with perspective. Over time, it becomes easier to decide between what’s important and what will turn out to be a passing fancy, between an event that merits attention and one that will be forgotten in hindsight. Which explains why, firmly ensconced in that in-between stage of life, I’ve been wondering what message I would include in a bottle tossed out to sea. This is no idle exercise. Just the other day, I listened, fascinated and amused, to an NPR story about Capt. Sean Bercaw, who had thrown hundreds of messages in bottles into the ocean during his travels and received dozens of responses in return, sometimes years later. He began doing this when he was 10 years old and his family set off on a 3-1/2-year voyage around the world. Later, as a naval officer and then while working on a school ship, he continued to release bottles, his notes more formal as he explained that he was conducting an experiment on ocean currents. Sending off messages in bot-

By Ana Veciana-Suarez THE MIAMI HERALD

tles is a practice as ancient as glass, a time-honored (and quixotic) attempt to reach out, to connect, especially in the days before phone, Internet or air mail. If the response to the story of Bercaw is any indication, the allure of a grimy bottle with a handwritten note remains strong, even in this age of instant communication. There’s a certain romance to it, I suppose, a dreamy-eyed gamble and hope for human contact across the unknown. Ocean currents can be fickle, as can river banks and lake bottoms, and a bottle can take a long time, a very long time, to be retrieved. Oh, but when found: the joy, the surprise! This past summer, a long lost message in a bottle was found 75 miles downriver in Vermont. Sean Keown had thought the bottle he had set adrift with a buddy 35 years earlier was lost — until he got a call from Justin Shepard, a 14-year-old boy. The recovery inspired Keown to search for the childhood pal who had helped launch the bottle from a favorite swimming hole.

One couple I read about spotted a champagne bottle with a note while beachcombing in Alaska. Turns out the bottle had been thrown into the sea by another couple on their honeymoon 20 years earlier. When Ashley and Seth Cooper tracked them down, the second couple were not only still married but also still happy — a feat worthy of celebration. So what would I celebrate? What insightful message would I pen to a stranger who might get it decades later and miles away? I’d include a photo of my family with a caption that is self-explanatory: Happiness and headache. I’d jot a Latin proverb that describes my life more accurately than a multipage biography: When there is no wind, row. And, in a nod to midlife maturity, I’d assure the recipient what all of us want to know, whoever we are, wherever we go: Fellow castaway, you’re not alone.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ‘Unnecessary behemoth’

Dear editor, Recent coverage by the Standard-Radio Post of the town meeting on the proposed 96bed jail facility was very useful and informative. I commend those citizens who showed up and asked good questions. One is forced to consider two motivations for the proponents of this $15 million facility: an expectation that our crime rate will multiply dramatically, or the creation of a revenue stream by selling jail beds to surrounding counties. What a cynical vision for Gillespie County! It leads me to one very big question for those who promoted this behemoth, unnecessary (in its proposed form) jail facility: “What were you thinking?” All of us understand the need to upgrade and expand the current facility — a new (48-bed or less) jail and dispatch facility would make sense — there is no issue there. However, once again we are faced with individuals in positions of power who love to spend other people’s (the taxpayers) money. How much was spent on architects and consultants? This kind of behavior is a prime example of why our federal government is in so much trouble.

All of you should know that the committee that worked on this tried to avoid a bond election, therefore denying taxpayers the opportunity to weigh in on this very important issue regarding their money! All of you should also know that commissioner Donnie Schuch and others insisted that the taxpayers be allowed to decide this question. Thank you, Commissioner Schuch, and all of you who spoke up on behalf of the taxpayers and common sense. Forty-eight beds, maybe. Ninety-six beds, office spaces, new courtrooms, and more, no way! Please vote “no” on Nov. 6 and force the proponents of the new jail facility to act responsibly and sensibly. Johnny Nicholas Doss

If jail vote fails, liabilities still exist

Dear editor, We are concerned with some of the letters that are focusing only on the costs of the new jail versus present costs and not on the real reasons for why we need the new jail. We are originally from here having left here in the latter ’50s and early ’60s. We came back in 2006, living in Fredericksburg, and have been following various events since then.

The most important reason for having the new jail is to not have to transport prisoners back and forth from our community to other communities. This is a very dangerous liability situation in the possibility of having accidents and prisoners escaping, while en-route to these other jails. It also takes our deputies away from our community where they may be needed in emergency situations. They should not be put in “harm’s way” by making trips across Texas.  We feel that our priorities are not in order. We spend money on a golf course and two new pools but give the jail lower priority? We have been in trouble with the justice department for years. We visited the present jail on the open house. It is way too small for the amount of potential criminals we have today.  Fredericksburg should not have put itself into the situation where it continuously had to patch up its jail to meet state requirements.  Having a new and better jail does not mean prisoners will have a luxurious good life in jail. It is better protection for our citizens and our officers and others who work in the jail system. Les and Elaine Meurer Fredericksburg

County services praised

Dear editor, I wish to thank the Gillespie County Sheriff ’s Department for their judicial and continued services to all of us who live in and around Upper Live Oak Road. The department immediately responded to my call several months ago when I felt myself endangered on our road. That danger no longer exists, and I believe it is due to their continued surveillance in our area. I also wish to thank the good drivers that use this road. They are mostly early and late drivers that are on their way to and from work. They are extremely courteous and considerate of us who walk (some with dogs) on Upper Live Oak. Many go out of their way to make room for us on this country road and always wave hello to us. I don’t know names but I do know the friendly faces. Thanks, everyone! Lastly, I’d like to thank our commissioner, Billy Roeder. Over the years, he has been extremely responsive to our needs and requests. Indeed, he has been a good friend to most of us. Sincerely, Mary L. Pearson Fredericksburg

The original friendly, chatty weatherman Writer’s Roost By Willis Webb our climate and who has the type of personality needed to attract viewers. Many stations use trained meteorologists. In the blossoming of TV news and weather reporting in the 1960s-70s, there wasn’t an abundance of specifically trained individuals to do that. There was some quick-study training, but a good on-screen persona was as important then as it is today. My all-time favorite TV weatherman was from those early times. Sid Lasher was Houston’s original friendly, chatty rain-or-shine man. While, it was easy to like Sid in his on-air job, it was even easier to care about such a nice, warm, considerate human being in person. He was immensely popular and in demand for public appearances at civic and charitable events. And, Sid couldn’t say no. He worked a grueling schedule. He was at the station before noon each day because, in those days, many weathermen per-

formed a number of other functions, usually “hosting” some time slots with movies or other canned entertainment as well as being responsible for some technical control. Then, there were the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. weather reports to prepare as well as bulletins as needed. Sid averaged a half-dozen or so public appearances a week on top of a 50-60 hour work schedule. As an officer in a few civic and social organizations within my community as well as publishing a weekly newspaper, I often had need for not only programs for those groups, but also a “celebrity” to be the host or master of ceremonies. I asked Sid to host perhaps four to five events a year. He rarely declined ... my group or any other public service organization. Then, one day came word that Sid had suffered a mild heart attack. He would be away from his television job for at least a couple of months. He was missed both on TV and in his many stints as headliner for public service/fundraising events. When Sid returned, the clamor for his presence at such functions did not let up. But, under doctor’s orders, the affable TV

weatherman had to say a word he’d had trouble with before — no. Those of us who’d used him to draw crowds to our fundraisers and functions, had to find other ways to fill the house. However, there weren’t many with his drawing power available without some notice and some preparation. Of course, Sid worked for free, for the good will it created for his employer, KHOU-TV, the Houston CBS affiliate. And, people with any drawing power for such events were beginning to command fees. Within weeks after his return to the air, one night in the 10 p.m. news opener, anchor Ron Stone came on screen and announced that Sid had suffered another heart attack and died just minutes before air time. KHOU’s news team somehow managed through tear-blurred eyes to deliver the news that evening. The original friendly, chatty TV weatherman went to meet his maker. It was a sad day for me, and I’m quite sure, for anyone who was drawn to his weathercast. Willis Webb is a retired community newspaper editor-publisher of more than 50 years experience. Email him at

the private label house brands the rest of us buy! And, they park right in the center of the aisle! - - Years ago in downtown Fredericksburg, virtually all of the grocery stores and hardware stores were located between the 100 and 300 blocks of East Main Street. And in those days, there wasn’t much more parking than now in that part of town. To add to the traffic congestion, hunters would double park their hunting rigs in the middle of the street in what we now call “the chicken lane,” pile out and visit the various stores in each particular block to buy groceries, hardware

items and other necessities for their hunting camps. The more seasoned hunters would send in a grocery list beforehand of things they would need. As the days before the season drew closer, the grocers would gather their merchandise, pack it in boxes, and have each box ready to be paid for and picked up when the hunters arrived. - - Even though times have changed, there’s one thing for sure. This part of the Texas Hill Country still holds the same allure for hunters and lovers of nature that it did years ago.

that hunting has become more of an economic issue instead of recreational. Eventually back in the 1990s, opening day was moved to the first Saturday in November. - - Gosh almighty, have you been to the grocery store the last day or so? I stopped by ‘to milk the cow’ yesterday at noon and had to park practically in the hinterlands as nearly every parking slot was taken. There were also a number of hunting rigs parked on the lot — easily distinguishable with trailers pulling four-wheelers of one sort or another. Once I made my way into the store, it was nearly “bump and shove” down the aisles which were filled with what seemed to be hunters gathering groceries and other necessities for hunting camp. It’s not hard to notice which hunters don’t frequent grocery stores very much. Their carts always include all of the name brand products — not

tions around that date so as not to miss the first day of the season as well as a chance “at the big one.” Sometimes, school students would be absent with a “mysterious” bug, and if opening day fell on a Sunday morning, there would be lots of good parking spots at church. When I was a youngster, I remember that hunting season always began on the Saturday nearest Nov. 16. Ask nearly any rancher and he will agree that opening day should still be set this way. Ranchers agree that one advantage of opening the season later in November is the fact that the breeding season is well underway and the trophy whitetails have more time to “share their heritage” with the rest of the herd, so to speak. The quality of today’s whitetails continues to improve, thanks to the efforts of landowners, game associations, game wardens and biologists and the hunters themselves. But in recent years, it seems

t’s amazing how important tomorrow’s weather is. Mothers want to know what’s likely so they can have the proper clothing ready for their children come morning and it’s time to get ready for school. Farmers and ranchers need to know about tomorrow’s weather because it affects so many things they do (or can’t do). Schools like knowing tomorrow’s forecast as well as long range since it dictates preparations for operations in every department in a public education system. That’s why several times a day, every day, most of us are glued to a radio or TV to get the latest weather update. Newspapers, particularly dailies and other multiple days of publication in a week, carry fairly extensive forecasts. Radio and TV stations devote a significant segment of their news programming to weathercasts, TV complete with maps, charts and other data. Television, of course, changed how we get the weather report. With TV, picking the right person to do the weather became significant. It has to be someone believable, who handles the techno-scientific aspects of

heart failure Thursday, Oct. 25, in Fredericksburg, where he had lived since 1994. A memorial service will be held Saturday, Nov. 3, at 3 p.m., at Beckmann Funeral Home. He was retired from Exxon in Baytown and later served on the board of directors of the Hill Country ExxonMobil Retirees Club. In Baytown, he spent many years coaching Little League, YMCA football and basketball teams. Born March 1, 1926 in Baytown, he graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1944 and played on the Gander football team that reached the state semi-finals. He also lettered in football at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. When he served in the U.S. Army in the early fifties, he played on a military football team that won the European championship in Germany. Skeeter’s earliest participation in sports was as a bat boy for the Humble Oilers semi-pro baseball team in Baytown. He married the former Wanda Jones in 1954. She survives, along with daughter Jan Kay McGowen and granddaughter Olivia Beth McGowen, all of Fredericksburg, and grandson Scott McGowen of Baytown. He was preceded in death by his parents, W.A. and Carrie Orton of Baytown. Skeeter received his bachelor’s degree in government and physical education at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, where he served as president of the Baytown Club, composed of students from his hometown. After his discharge from the Army, he was hired to coach at Baytown Junior High but decided instead to follow in his dad’s footsteps and work at Exxon, then Humble Oil and Refining Co. He retired in 1986. In the 1960’s, he received the Optimist Club Youth Award for his work in sports and also received the Baytown Community Service Award. He served on the first board of directors of the Baytown YMCA and was a charter member of the Bay Area Heritage Society. A member of First Baptist Church in Baytown, he attended the Methodist Church after moving to Fredericksburg and he especially enjoyed the Bible study and friendship in his Sunday School class. Besides sports, Skeeter loved music, all kinds of music from opera to pop tunes and old gospel hymns, and he enjoyed plays and movies. He often related the story about how he met his wife when they acted in a play a Lee College in Baytown. Backstage during a rehearsal, he asked Wanda for their first date. Going from the stage to real life, they spent 58 great years together. Skeeter was a loyal fan of Fredericksburg High School and St. Mary’s School teams and the St. Mary’s cheerleaders once awarded him the Spirit Stick for faithful attendance at games. He also received autographed baseballs and basketballs from various teams through the years in appreciation of his being one of their biggest fans. On two different occasions Skeeter was asked to pitch the first ball at an opening game of the Billies’ season. He was fascinated by history and on road trips he always scrutinized historical markers along the way. He also was interested in genealogy. He was also a member of the American Legion. Skeeter served as an assistant scoutmaster for many years and was a member of the East Harris District Scout Board and the Sam Houston Area Council in Houston.

Charles Albert Kessler

September 25, 1927 ~ October 19, 2012 Charles Albert Kessler, 85, of Fredericksburg and formerly of Arlington Heights, Ill., Texas died Oct. 19, 2012, at Hill Country Memorial Hospital. Graveside services with military honors and interment were held Thursday, Oct. 25, at noon at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio with the Rev. Rick Hartmann officiating. Visitation and a prayer service were held Wednesday evening, Oct. 24, in the chapel at Schaetter Funeral Home. Charles was born Sept. 25, 1927, in San Antonio, the fourth and youngest child of Laurence Albert Kessler and Emma Alberthal Kessler. In addition to his parents, Charles was preceded in death by his oldest sister, Esther Fox; his brother, James Kessler, and his daughter, Barbara Kessler. Charles graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio where he was in ROTC, the ham radio club, and involved with the school annual. He took art lessons from well-known Texas artist Hugo Pohl for many years. After serving in the U.S. Army as an x-ray technician, he attended two years at the Kansas City Art Institute and then two years at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Ill. On Aug. 26, 1949, he married his high school sweetheart, Jane Dale Porter. They moved to Chicago where Charles worked as an illustrator at Whitaker Guernsey Art Studio until they closed in 1958. Charles was able to use his talent in art to acquire work in the advertising industry. He started his long advertising career at Clinton E. Frank Advertising Agency, then D’Arcy McManus, and eventually to Leo Burnett Advertising Agency, all in Chicago. He was then offered a position at Bozell Jacobs Advertising Agency in Detroit, Mich., where he was Vice President and Executive Art Director until his retirement in 1996. Charles had multiple hobbies and interests during his lifetime. His true loves were painting, music and golfing. He would be at the local driving range every night after coming home from work. His passion for golf was so intense, he thought his calling in life was to teach everyone the perfect golf swing. He taught himself to read music and learn to play the string bass and electric bass guitar. He was a member of the Northwest Symphony outside Chicago and he played in the orchestras for Music on Stage and Off Broadway Theatre Companies in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. In San Antonio, Texas, he played with the Lamp Lighters, a big band, as well as playing with the church choir for Zion Lutheran Church in Fredericksburg. One of his proudest achievements was auditioning and becoming a lifetime member of the Chicago Musicians Union. He was very proud of his Musicians Union card and always carried it with him. Other hobbies included being an Amateur Ham Radio Operator, building and flying radio-controlled airplanes, fly fishing, especially in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, Live Steam Model Railroading, restoring his 1956 MG TD antique car, and touring on his BMW motorcycles. He always found time to enjoy all of these interests. He is survived by his loving wife, Jane, of 64 years; a daughter, Linda Kessler Spencer and her husband, Carlton Spencer, as well as a son, David Laurence Kessler and wife, Marla Nelson Kessler. He also has five grandchildren: William A. Kessler, Timothy D. Spencer, Griffin C. Kessler, William H. Kessler and Halle P. Kessler. He is also survived by his sister, Dorothy Kessler Weber of Mountain View, Calif. Charles loved life and lived every moment to the fullest. He always made a friend with anyone he met and could maintain a conversation with anyone from any walk of life. He could paint a picture with his words and you could visualize the scene. His family and many friends loved and adored him. He will be truly missed. In lieu of flowers the family wishes that memorials be given in his memory to the Zion Lutheran Church, Alzheimer’s Association or to the charity of your choice.

Merit Scholarship program honors Hinton, Itz cited

Two Fredericksburg High School students — Amanda Hinton and Matthew Itz — were recently named Commended Students in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program, according to an announcement from FHS principal Lynn Blackwell. A letter of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented to the two seniors by Blackwell. About 34,000 commended students throughout the nation are recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2013 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the

top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). “Recognizing academically talented students plays a fundamental role in the advancement of educational excellence within our nation,” commented an NMSC spokesperson. “The young people recognized as Commended Students represent some of the best and brightest minds in the country as demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program. We sincerely hope this recognition will provide them with additional educational outlets and motivate them in their pursuit of academic achievement.”

AG & OUTDOORS Farm Bureau urges reform Gillespie County families are calling for aid from legislators to help preserve family farms by establishing permanent estate tax reform during the lame duck session. “Estate taxes can be devastating for a family business, including farms and ranches that have been handed down for generations,” said Elgin Pape, president of the Gillespie County Farm Bureau. The tax requires families to pay on land and assets owned by a family member when that person dies. The estate tax exemption is $5 million in assets, and assets above that are taxed at a 35 percent top rate. “If Congress doesn’t act on estate taxes before the end of the year, the estate tax exemption will drop to $1 million and the top rate will increase to 55 percent,” Pape said. “Farmers are asset rich and cash poor, and those changes could really devastate our family farms as they’re already experiencing the loss of a loved one.” Farm Bureau supports a lower estate tax top rate and higher exemption as well as a permanent extension of the 15 percent capital gains tax. The capital gains tax is set to increase from 15 to 20 percent if Congress does not take action before year’s end.

FIRST BUCK — Eight-year-old Derek Whitworth of Fredericksburg shot his first white-tail deer, a nine-pointer on Saturday, Oct. 27, on the Whitworth Ranch near Stonewall during the Special Youth-Only Season that was offered over the weekend.

THUMBS UP — Six-year-old Kadence Simmons of Fredericksburg shot her first white-tail buck on Sunday, Oct. 28, around 8 a.m. on the Wilson Ranch in Gillespie County. The nine-pointer dressed 128 points, and was shot during the Special Youth-Only Season held this past weekend. Simmons is the daughter of Steve Wilson and Laurie Ottmers.

Tax relief due to some sellers Farmers and ranchers in Gillespie County who were forced to sell draft animals, breeding livestock or dairy animals early because of drought, flood or weatherrelated conditions have been granted more time to defer payment of capital gains taxes on replacement animals, according to Elgin Pape, president of the Gillespie County Farm Bureau. “The deferment for purchasing replacement animals is normally four years,” Pape said, but the Internal Revenue Service has extended the replacement period because of the drought. Gillespie County has a replacement period for livestock that has been extended to the first taxable year after the drought ends. More information is available by reading IRS Notice 2012-62, which can be found at irs-drop/N-12-62.pdf.

DELANEY WHITORTH, 12, of Fredericksburg bagged this nine-point white-tailed buck on the Whitworth Ranch near Stonewall on Sunday, Oct. 28, while hunting during the Special Youth-Only Season over the weekend.

contract calls for the seller to make repairs prior to closing. Review closing documents ahead of time. There are pages of documents that buyers have to sign and you should understand what they all mean. There won’t be enough time at the closing to read them, so get copies in advance. Make sure that the money is available. Transfer funds, obtain a cashier’s check—do whatever must be done to have the funds on hand. The lender will provide a statement of the buyer’s actual costs a few days before closing, so he’ll know just how much that check should be. What if the closing is delayed? Even if the transaction doesn’t close on time, it doesn’t mean it won’t close in a week or two. Sometimes the seller has a problem clearing a title, which can lead to a buyer’s concern about a locked-in interest rate. Buyers should know how long their rate is frozen for and have a plan in place with another lender if the closing gets delayed beyond that point. In some cases, buyers may have trouble securing financing. In this case, sellers can entertain contingent contracts from other buyers. These contingent contracts usually don’t come into play. But when the original contract doesn’t close on time, the seller may move on to the next offer and sell the house before the first buyer can receive funding. Final steps to closing Prior to closing, you want to be

President’s Column

Top tips for a trouble-free closing You’ve found the perfect house—or buyer—and you’re on your way to closing, where ownership of the property is officially transferred and money changes hands. This final stage of a real estate transaction has many steps. Your Texas REALTOR® can help you navigate the closing process and answer questions that may arise, but here’s some advice to help you prepare. Understand the closing process Before closing, buyers should review everything that has been done in connection with inspections, title work and surveys to make sure that there are no loose ends. If the contract calls for the seller to make repairs, the buyer should confirm that the work has been completed to his satisfaction. Ensure that the lender knows the time and date of the closing and has copies of any contract addenda. In addition, the buyer needs to complete several tasks before closing: Obtain homeowner’s insurance. The policy should be in place and ready to go in effect days before closing. Change the name on the utilities. The buyer should verify that the seller has canceled his accounts and have service scheduled to be turned on. Schedule a walk-through. Conduct the walk-through near the closing date, but leave a few extra days as a cushion if the

certain that all the conditions of the contract, like seller repairs, have been met. Before signing your name to any closing documents, check that everything is correct, including the interest rate, fees charged and condition of the property. Whether you’re the buyer or the seller, making a list is a great way to cover your bases. Here’s what it could include: Buyer’s closing checklist • A cashier’s check or money order for the amount specified on your final settlement costs statement • Your personal checkbook in the unlikely event other charges come up at closing • Proof of a homeowner’s insurance policy • Your lender’s good faith estimate • Some form of identification (i.e., driver license, passport, etc.) Seller’s closing checklist • Keys, padlock combinations and garage-door openers • Codes to security system (if applicable) • Owners manuals for all appliances • Checkbook for closing costs or other expenses paid by seller (as agreed to as part of the buyer’s final offer) Although few closings encounter m a j o r setbacks, it can happen. To ensure your transaction closes quickly, make sure you’re prepared. For more information on buying or selling a home in Texas, visit 6427.20

Probiotic Powerhouse (NAPSA)—Beneficial bacteria, known as probiotics, naturally live in our digestive tract, but they need regular replenishing. This dynamic community of microorganisms is disrupted by antibiotics, stress, alcohol, smoking, pollution and simply growing older. Fortunately, it’s possible to achieve the optimal balance you need for digestive and immune health, simply by eating a cup of organic yogurt.

Organic yogurt fortified with probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, can help improve digestive health. All organic yogurts include the starter cultures Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. Meanwhile, Stonyfield Farm adds four additional cultures, including the premium probiotic culture Lactobacillus rhamnosus, to create a probiotic powerhouse in each cup. “This unique blend has been clinically proven to enhance infection resistance, reduce intestinal discomfort, improve lactose tolerance and create a barrier effect against pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal tract,” explains Vicki Koenig, MS, RD, CDN.

Cool Food For Kids How To Teach Children Perseverance Spread The Joy And Share Some Memories By Baking Up Seasonal Cookies Dentists Can Save Lives

(NAPSA)—Cookies have a way of brightening any day, especially around the holidays, when they offer many delicious opportunities to spread seasonal cheer. It’s not just eating cookies that’s enjoyable. The mere act of making cookies with your family can help create some of the best memories. Giving everyone a task makes the job easier, and baking cookies together is a delightful way to spend time with the children. Cookies make an appetizing gift, a thoughtful way to show you care and a one-of-a-kind creation to give during the holidays or for special occasions. Sharing homemade cookies is a wonderful way to thank friends and families, a much-appreciated gift for a hostess or a delicious treat for a church, school or work function. Some of the best cookies are made with Argo Corn Starch and Karo Syrup, products that have been classic staples for bakers. For example, did you know that cornstarch is the secret ingredient for softer shortbread cookies? The right blend of cornstarch and flour is found in Peppermint Candy Shortbread Cookies. The rich color and flavor of dark corn syrup is an essential ingredient of moist, chewy Oatmeal Hermits, an old-fashioned cookie favorite.

A ‘Welcome’ Challenge in San Antonio, they took a cursory trip to the River Walk and toured the Alamo, then headed for the Hill Country. Arriving late on Friday night, they were able to make it to two clubs: Hondo’s and Silver Creek, which are pretty representative of the types of local venues that feature Hill Country singer-songwriters. The next day, the pair sampled the Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest, leaving for a short time to head over to St. Barnabas to catch a concert by the Fredericksburg Community Orchestra. After that, they strolled the shops lining the widest Main Street in Texas. One of the authentic Texas “experiences” on their list was to shoot a gun — something not so easy to do in Massachusetts. (Just realized I’ve never written “Massachusetts” before — I only put in one extra “s.”) So they called up a friend and spent some time at one of the half dozen local shooting clubs, turning pumpkins into pumpkin pieces using four different guns. Food is always focus for Super Crossword first-timers, and we managed Puzzle Can Be Found to arrange a Saturday night On Page 12 spread featuring beans, coleslaw, potato salad, Texas tea, and a fresh brisket prepared by David Strackbein, topped with his new “That There BBQ” sauce (available at Hondo’s and Rustlin’ Robs). We were slow getting off the mark on Sunday, but after a brunch with Texas Toast, eggs, and sausage topped with some Fischer & Wieser chipotle sauce, the adventure contin-

The challenge: Show someone a typical Texas time in Fredericksburg in only two days. In this corner: The Host. In that corner: The Guest. Last weekend, my son, on his way from somewhere to somewhere else, dropped in on us to 1) surprise his mom on her birthday, and 2) give his friend the quintessential “Fredericksburg, Texas” experience. The challenge was to do it only two days. Since my directive in writing this column is to share the entertainment scene, I thought it would be interesting to look at the experience from the perspective of someone who had never set foot in town — or even in the state of Texas. Let’s call her Erin — since that is her name. She grew up in Boston, and even though only in her early 20s, she has traveled quite a bit and lived in different states. She had no preconceptions about Texas. After getting off the plane

ued. This day included a trip to famous Luckenbach, Texas. After enjoying that destination’s longnecks, longnecked guitars, and bandannabedecked cowboys, the pair ended the waning day with a trek to the top of Enchanted Rock in time to witness the sun going down in the west and the full moon rising in the east. What struck me as I chronicled the activities was what they didn’t have time to do. Having lived in Fredericksburg since the days when there were auto parts shops, hardware stores and laundromats downtown, I realize the number of clubs, restaurants and music venues has grown so quickly that I have not been able to write about them all. But only when you try to introduce someone to the town, do you realize how much we have to offer. Hitting every one of these sites would take a month of Sundays and 30 Saturdays. Here is a quick list of “places they didn’t have time to visit”: The Nimitz Museum and George Bush Gallery; The Historic District; The Rockbox; The LBJ Ranch; The Pioneer Museum; Cross Mountain; Any of the dozens of wineries lining every approach to town; and, Any of the countless bed and breakfast accommodations. Events alone were impossible. Although they hit the Food and Wine Fest, the list of festivals, plays, shows and concerts would take a year to catch up with, and even then you could not make them all because many are held on the same day. I know readers will think of many more entertainment opportunities missed: the plays at Fredericksburg Theater Company, the First Friday Art Walk, the Gillespie County Fair, Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park and golf course. But the point is that Fredericksburg has a lot to offer. Yeah, I know. You already know that. But until you try to show it all to a brand new visitor, you don’t really know it. What to do?

WELCOME TO FREDERICKSBURG. What would you do if you only had one weekend to show a visitor the town?

I guess those first settlers had the answer all along. It’s found in the first letters of the streets leading out of town: Crockett; Orange; Milam; Edison; Bowie; Acorn; Cherry; Kay — COME BACK.

By Rubye Hallford Allergy Season, Again! It seems that we have an neverending allergy season. Our recent big rains were a great blessing, but they unfortunately helped the baby ragweed plants grow to giant size. You might not have noticed them, but in the creek areas, in vacant lots, old unused fields, etc., they are growing well. One ragweed plant can reportedly produce a billion bits of pollen in a season. It is a light green plant that has bloom

spikes on top. It spreads by seeds and rhizomes underground. Most humans are sensitive to ragweed pollen. This may be the only time of year that you notice allergy responses. You are fine during cedar blooms, oak blooms, pecan blooms, and now, you are sick. We carry several products that actually help to desensitive us to the allergens. Celletech’s Texas Allergy Relief, Allergena’s Zone 5, Telos Labs’ Texas Airborne Allergen Formula are all very helpful. We also have a lot of products that treat the body’s symptoms, such as watery eyes, runny nose, etc. It is a good idea to not let the symptoms go on until you have an ear infection or a throat infection or bronchitis. Ragweed was something from the New World that became an invader to Europe. It might have been as bad as the English Sparrow and the starling were for us!

Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post

Gail Reagan

PITCH PERFECT: Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson. Pitch Perfect is a bright and breezy comedy brimming with energy (based on a behind-thescenes book by Mickey Rapkin) that follows an all-girl a cappella group called the Barden Babes of Barden University who are out to “pitch-slap” their competition. Beca (Anna Kendrick, who was quite deservedly Oscar® nominated for her performance in Up in the Air) leads the cast as the wannabe DJ who reluctantly joins the college group to appease her professor father. The group is determined to triumph over the long-standing national champions at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella competition. The perennial winners, The Treblemakers, are a male group led by the obnoxious Bumper (Adam DeVine — who delivers some of the movie’s funniest lines). The wonderful ensemble cast also includes Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Elizabeth Banks and Rebel Wilson, among many others. They gleefully emerge themselves into their exuberant, wisecracking characters. And while Anna Kendrick can sing as well as act, her co-stars out shine her, especially Rebel Wilson as Adele (What to Expect When Are Expecting), a sassy character who has named herself Fat Amy and who has a wonderful anything-goes spirit — and can she sing! The story, told through auditions, riff-offs, and road trips, is cleverly driven by the use of old and new pop songs, with lyrics that often match the action. While there were a few too many gross-out jokes for me, the film is saved by the amazing big finale. And if you really appreciate talent, Pitch Perfect is for you — guaranteeing that you will go home with a smile on your face. PG-13.

CLOUD ATLAS: Tom Hanks. Not quite sure what to say about Cloud Atlas. It’s timetraveling stories that explore BIG themes, and it is long, almost three hours. The stories, driven by the themes, are laced together and take place in mostly imagined worlds. The large cast — wearing prosthetic masks — in addition to Tom Hanks, includes Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant. And while it does have some imposing themes, fate and density, freedom and bondage, power and corruption, it is often quite easy to lose your way. So be prepared to pay close attention, and for the mythic story telling. The movie takes itself very, very, very seriously, but does have the courage of its convictions — whatever they may be. I am not going to grade the movie and I will leave it up to you to decide. Cloud Atlas has violence, language, sexual content, nudity and drugs. R. On DVD Now for a few hidden gems (something for everyone): BOWFINGER: (1999) Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy. Bobby Bowfinger (Martin) is a wannabe filmmaker and actor. When his accountant and part-time receptionist, Afrim (Adam Alexi-Malle), writes a cheesy sci-fi action script called Chubby Rain, Bowfinger sees the film he was destined to make with the help of his ragtag group of friends on the far fringes of the film industry. After sneaking the film to producers, he tries to convince America’s biggest action star, the extremely paranoid and unstable Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy), to take the lead. After Kit throws Bobby out, Bowfinger decides to make the film anyway, only shooting the actor without his knowledge. With the other actors running up to him and spouting crazed dialogue about an alien invasion, Kit just slides closer to the

edge. (This is one of my all-time favorite funniest films.) Bobby, of course, has his crazed posses to help. Foremost is Daisy (Heather Graham), an ingénue fresh off the bus from Ohio who will happily strip or sleep with anyone or anything that will further her career. The charmer is Kit’s body double, his idiot brother (Eddie Murphy). This allows Eddie Murphy to play both ends of the spectrum around Bowfinger and completely steal every scene he’s in. The point of all this? Just watch two of the funniest guys in the country do what they do best, without a bad script to get in the way. Some brutal jabs at Scientology are a nice added bonus. Who knows? You might actually learn a little something about filmmaking, though this is probably not the best way to go about it. PG-13.

BIG NOTHING: (2007) David Schwimmer. Charlie (Schwimmer), a struggling writer, reluctantly takes a job at a customer call center. There he befriends Gus (Simon Pegg), who persuades Charlie, along with Josie, the only one with brains (Alice Eve), to help him with a blackmailing scheme. As expected, everything goes wrong. The evening that was supposed to bring the big bucks, brings them instead multiple corpses. The cast shows a wonderful knack for screwball pacing. Big Nothing is a work of dark comic insanity that never gets away from itself. The lunacy is close to the ground and the comedy rolls forward at a feverish pace. The combination allows for large laughs throughout. R.

APPALOOSA: (2008) Ed Harris. Appaloosa takes the traditional notion of a lone lawman fighting injustice and turns it successfully on its head. The film follows the exploits of Virgil Cole (Harris) and Everett Hitch (Viggo Mortensen), gunslinging partners in the peacekeeping business. But when the partners are hired by the town officials of Appaloosa, the job tests not only

THE NEW RELEASE Pitch Perfect follows an all-girl a capella group in this R-rated film.

their friendship but also their mettle. Rogue rancher Randall Bragg (Jeremy Irons) has shot up an Appaloosa marshal, and the city elders want him stopped. Cole and Hitch eventually capture him, but a distraction in the form of the widowed piano player Mrs. French (Renée Zellweger) comes into town and pretty soon all sorts of chaos follows. Ed Harris, who also directed, brings a dusty realism to the setting. Alternately tough and amusing, he’s the perfect actor to play this gruff but secretly vulnerable character, who engagingly transforms from man-of-few words to nervous suitor whenever Mrs. French arrives on the scene. The real love story here, though, is between Cole and the laconic West Point-educated Hitch, whose genuine affection for the older man turns out to be the film’s heart. Watching him casually supply words while Cole struggles for them is a treat – the two actors play off each other with a delightful, understated comic timing. There’s is a partnership for the ages, and the crafty creators of Appaloosa make great use of it. R.

THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD: (2004) Isabella Rossellini. Every moment is odd in Saddest Music, which might not be for everyone. The musical comedy film centers on a competition for the world’s most sorrowful song in 1933 Winnipeg. Musicians pitch tents in the

snowy city in hopes of claiming the $25,000 prize. Presiding over the contest is a legless beer baroness (Rossellini). Luxuriating in grand-dame entitlement, Isabella Rossellini sets the tone for a talented cast, winking only occasionally at the film’s absurd developments. Embittered by a botched roadside surgery (warning: shown in detail) that took her legs, the baroness nonetheless retains her lust for her driving companion. He’s a charlatan would-be stage producer named Chester (Mark McKinney) out to claim the prize. Mark McKinney captures the glib fast talk of the 1930s comic leading men as Chester twotimes the baroness with a nymphomaniac amnesiac (Maria de Medeiros). The real fun starts once the contest begins; Scottish bagpipers challenge Serbian cellists while radio announcers offer play-by-play. Winners of each round descend a metal slide into a vat of beer. Most of the musical content is confined to the stage, but people also erupt into song on the street, and in one clever scene, fail to erupt. A highly stylized film with few sympathetic characters is difficult to sustain, but the wildly inventiveness outweighs any of the movie’s weaknesses. The lasting impression of The Saddest Music in the World is of mad ingenuity without a hint of arrogance. The movie contains innuendo, sexual situations, unsettling images. R.

Gillespie’s ‘crop’ of Whitetails to be strong this season Hunters’ prospects improved this year with healthier deer following drought By Danny Hirt Following last year’s dry conditions, hunters should find the prospects better for harvest more and bigger deer when the 2012-13 season opens Saturday, Nov. 3. “The (deer) population looks pretty good to me,” said Gillespie County Game Warden Sam Harris. The animals, he added, are looking healthier this year than in recent years because this part of the Texas Hill

Country received “good rains at the right time.” Harris went on to say that he wouldn’t be surprised if the deer tend to shy away from feeders, especially during the early going, because of plentiful vegetation. “The acorn crops and pecan crops are much better than last year,” the local game warden commented, adding that the deer should feed on the naturally-occurring nourishment before turning to the feeders. Statewide hunting season prospects “The white-tailed deer herd in Texas is doing well and stable. Despite one of the worst droughts on record last year, the deer population came

Season outlook related to the drought.” The Texas deer hunting season opened Saturday, Sept. 29, for bow hunting and will open Saturday, Nov. 3 for the general gun season after a special youth-only weekend season on Oct. 27-28. The general season runs through Jan. 6 in North Texas and Jan. 20 in South Texas. A late youth-only season is also slated for Jan. 7-20. For additional late season deer hunting opportunities, consult the 2012-13 Outdoor Annual of hunting and fishing regulations. “Whenever a wildlife biologist talks about hunting prospects, weather is the caveat. It’s the one variable that land managers, biologists and hunters have no control over, yet it plays a critical part of the hunting equation,” Cain said. “Couple the results of good management, lower harvest in 2011 and some late winter and spring precipitation and the stage is set for a good deer season in 2012.” TPWD Big Game Harvest survey results confirmed that the 2011 deer harvest was

down compared to 2010. Last year’s estimated harvest was 574,808 white-tailed deer; 309,207 being bucks and 265,601 antlerless deer, while the 2010 season’s harvest was estimated at 647,975 deer; 336,550 being bucks

mated 512,852 deer. “Winter and spring moisture was much better compared to last year, and most of the state has received much-needed rain this spring to boost forage resources needed for antler development and fawn rearing,” Cain said. The abundant forage, critical to help deer meet nutritional demands, will help to bolster fawn production as well as antler quality. Late summer rains should help bucks bulk up and insure good fat reserves to make it through the rigors of rut and improve overall survival this winter. The only downside to the late summer rains is deer may not readily come to feeders or food plots early this fall so hunters may have to change up their strategies to bag a deer during the first weekend or two of general season. Hunters can expect to see fewer bucks in the 1½-yearold age class as fawn production was very low across many regions of the state in 2011. However, good fawn crops in 2005, 2007 and 2010 should translate into more bucks in the 7½, 5½, and 2½-year-old age classes as compared to other age classes. “Hopefully, hunters will find what they’re looking for this fall,” Cain said. “I’ve already seen pictures of an eight-point harvested in Bandera County this year that scored on the 159 Boone & Crockett scoring system, maybe sign of good things to come this season. Keep in mind this is well

above the average antler quality for bucks 6½ years of age or older.” Based on over 30 years of TPWD’s age and antler data, the average estimated B&C score for 6½-year-old or older bucks is 125.34. The South Texas and Eastern Rolling Plains regions have the highest estimated average B&C scores for bucks 6½ or older at 134.59 and 129.82, respectively. The remaining regions produce great quality mature bucks with estimated average B&C scores in the low to mid 120s.

“As always we encourage hunters to harvest antlerless deer to help with overall population management, which is an important component to maintain quality native habitats for all wildlife,” Cain said. “One thing for sure is that we are blessed with the largest white-tailed deer herd in the nation, approximately 3.3 million deer, and opportunity can be found in nearly every region of the state. So don’t sit on the couch this fall watching the hunting shows, get outdoors and be a part of what will hopefully prove to be a great deer season.”

Quail season ready to rebound But experts still predicting ‘iffy’ outcome for 2012 excursions

AN EXTRAORDINARY drought last year led to limited production of quail in many parts of the state, and questions about the 2012 season. — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department photo

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s website (www., this year’s quail season should be better than in 2011, but still below average. Bobwhite quail hunting can be “iffy” in Texas, considering the birds exist here on the western edge of their distribution here. There are still vast expanses of suitable Bobwhite habitat in the South Texas rangelands and in the Rolling Plains, where in some years over a 100,000 hunters flocked. Bobs are limited in these regions by rainfall, more specifically the lack thereof. Statewide surveys began in 1978 to monitor quail populations. This index uses randomly selected, 20-mile roadside survey lines to determine annual quail population trends by region. This trend information helps deter-

mine relative quail populations in Texas. Comparisons can be made between the mean (average) number of quail observed per route this year and the long term mean (LTM) for quail seen within an ecological region. The survey was not designed to predict relative abundance for any area smaller than the ecological region. The Edwards Plateau The Edwards Plateau region (which contains Gillespie County) continues to exhibit numbers that are considered well below its “long-term mean” (LTM), stated the TPWD. It’s possible there could be a few quail hunting opportunities remaining in the region, the TPWD survey is not designed to detect changes in localized populations, especially in fragmented landscapes.

Due to “extraordinary” drought conditions last year, there was limited production of quail in many parts. Because last year’s season was well below average throughout Texas, with some new record lows noted in the bird surveys, many ranchers opted not to hunt last season in hopes to aid recovery. Therefore, the quail population was sparse heading into the breeding season. But most of the core Texas quail hunting regions did in fact receive rainfall in the spring of 2012 which resulted in a flush of new vegetation and insects. Looking forward, climatologists report the beginning of an El Niño year that could mean a wet winter and spring. This scenario could improve conditions and lead to greater quail densities in 2013.

Sadly, many hunting-license holders know very little about whitetail deer … other than what time the feeder goes off. Even sadder is the fact that very few youths today who want to be hunters have anybody who can help them get started in the right direction and answer their questions. That’s a shame, because the whitetail deer is one of the most fascinating animals on the continent, so the kids are deprived of the opportunity to learn to know him, as well as the chance to become part of the essential wildlife conservation effort in America, which is largely hunter-based and hunter-funded. During my teen years in the 1940s, deer hunting was pretty much a one-on-one activity

— one hunter and one buck. There was no such thing as a prefabricated deer blind, automatic corn feeder or high-tech camouflage clothing. Hunting was mostly done on the ground, either walking or sitting with one’s back against a tree. We learned to notice and read deer tracks and other sign in order to choose a place to sit, and we learned how to sit still, by which I mean motionless, letting our eyeballs do all the roaming. It was mostly very short-range hunting, where we had to see the buck before he saw us. That was a challenge. Once, my non-hunting mother sat with me to watch the deer. She had her back against another oak slightly behind mine. She found my ability to sit like a statue “eerie” and said she often glanced at me to make sure I was still

sure what it is.” If this pose is held for more than a minute, all other deer nearby will become nervous, stop feeding and stare in the same direction. If the tail is slowly raised, all the deer are on the verge of flight, which will follow within seconds. On the other hand, if a buck holds his head high but with his chin tucked in, ears drooped back and antlers tilted slightly forward, he’s looking at a possible rival male and a fight may be about to commence. The head held low and suddenly lifted and lowered several times, accompanied by a front hoof being stamped repeatedly, signals “There’s something over there and I don’t like it.” Often, the alarmed animal — usually a doe — will advance slowly. If the “something” won’t move or otherwise respond to the display, everybody may relax and go back to foraging.

Finally, a buck’s head and neck held low and extended, pointed at a doe with the muzzle slightly lifted, is courting activity, something like “Hi, Beautiful! How about a date?” The buck makes short rushes at the doe, testing her willingness to stand for him. Meantime, the other end of

‘... a feeding deer almost always switches his tail before he raises his head. It’s useful information for a hunter.’ the deer — the tail — is sending signals, too. We all know the raised white flag, wagging back and forth as the animal flees. It’s the source of his name, “whitetail.” If, however, you have shot at the deer and it runs with tail clamped down tightly, it’s probably seriously wounded. But did you know that a

feeding deer almost always switches his tail just before he raises his head? It’s useful information for a hunter trying to sneak up on a foraging buck. Watch the tail and freeze when it switches! As mentioned above, slowly lifting the tail as the owner stares fixedly in one direction signals suspicion and uncertainty, and attracts the attention of every nearby deer that sees it. Also, a buck that trots or runs, with his tail at half-mast, sticking straight out behind him, toward a hunter who is rattling antlers to simulate a buck fight is completely fooled. The tail position shows he’s convinced. This is just a sampling of what can be learned by watching whitetails. Much additional information can be derived from more subtle body language signals. It’s almost as if you have their phones tapped, and it starts with curiosity, saying, “I wonder why he did that.”

DEER URINE conveys powerful messages. When a doe (above) enters estrous, a hormone scents her urine and attracts males, perhaps causing fights. THE HEAD-UP alert position (at left) is assumed every few minutes, but doesn’t mean alarm. Earand tail positions modify the message. — Photos by John Wooters

‘Gillespie County Hoggers’ hit the mark Family eradicates nuisance wild pigs for landowners around the state By Ken Esten Cooke Ronald and Darrell Corbyn are Gillespie County’s “Hog Stoppers” and the father-son duo tries to make a dent in the massive population of destructive feral hogs. The Corbyns began hunting hogs for landowners as a hobby about nine years ago, but it has since grown into a six-day-a-week job for Ronald and when time allows for Darrell, a Gillespie County ranch manager. “I feel like I’m helping to make an impact for people who are having a problem with hogs,” Ronald, a retired archeologist, said. “After I retired, I began doing tree work, and I saw hogs at a ranch off of Tivydale Road. I came from a good hunting background,

so we started shooting hogs on that ranch and expanded from there.” Corbyn said they don’t like to kill anything they can’t use for meat, but there are problem areas where landowners need large number of hogs killed quickly. Darrell Corbyn is a former computer technician, but spent seven years as an infantryman in the U.S. Army, sharpening his shooting skills. He said Hog Stoppers now has about 50,000 acres that they hunt regularly. Most jobs are in Gillespie and surrounding counties, but they have been called to Abilene, Tyler, the Houston area and all over South Texas. “We just got back from a job near Johnson City,” Darrell

‘Gillespie County Hoggers’ said. “These landowners have 200 acres on a creek — just a beautiful place — and they had hogs camped out right below their house. They were destroying flower beds and other land, so we took care of it.” Corbyn said that hogs are a problem all over the state, but that the area from Victoria to Houston is the thickest he’s seen. ‘Hoggers’ The Corbyns have made the outings a family affair with two of Ronald’s other sons, Richard and Byron, often taking part, and Darrell’s children Adrian, age 19, and Brook, 15,

sometimes joining the hunts. When “hogging” began to catch on as a reality TV genre, the Corbyns were approached to be subjects by one production company. “We never came to an agreement,” he said. “They wanted to put a female as the lead on the team and stage a lot of cussing and fighting. That’s just not us. I’ve seen a lot of these shows, and they go out and get one hog and call that hog control. But we need to get seven to 15 a day to make a dent.” Darrell said some days he feels they are fighting an uphill battle against the nuisance swine. He said the hogs

are clever and can learn to avoid hunters without dogs. “They don’t mind being shot at, but when you find them in their daytime hiding spots and get dogs and guns on them, they’re never going back to that spot,” Darrell said. Corbyn said landowners can walk across their acreage and never see a hog, so it can be hard to gauge when a problem exists. It can also seem futile since some hunters won’t acknowledge the hogs or allow hunting on their property. “We always find that there’s one property that’s a holdout,” he said. “It becomes a breeding ground — we call it a BROOK CORBYN, 15, has recently begun to hunt with her father, Darrell, and grandfather, Donald.

Youth-only seasons

Cont. from page 8

The season is open in all counties where there is a general open season for white-tailed deer. All legal hunting means and methods are allowed, except Grayson County is archery only. For much of the state, including Gillespie County and the remainder of the Hill Country, the bag and permit requirements are the same as for the first two days of the general season in the county. Turkey While the early part of this season ended this past weekend, there’ll be another opportunity for youngsters to hunt for turkeys during the weekend of Jan. 19-20, 2013. Only licensed hunters 16 years of age or younger may hunt turkey during this season. Bag limit as specified by the general fall turkey season. The annual bag limit for turkey, in the aggregate for all counties, is four (4), no more than one of which may be an Eastern turkey. A special youth-only season for Rio Grande turkeys runs in two segments during the spring of 2013 — March 9-10 and May 4-5. New for the Youth-Only Spring Season (Rio Grande turkey only): All counties with a four-turkey bag limit: North Zone, Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24, 2013 and May 18-19, 2013, and South Zone, Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10, 2013 and May 4-5, 2013. • For more information on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Youth-Only hunting seasons, as well as other general hunting information, log onto the website: www.tpwd.

and a team of dogs. Ronald Corbyn can end up hiking four to five miles each day, even at age 69, following the dogs as they sniff out hogs. In his trademark floppy hat and suspenders, his planning and knowledge of land and tracking leads to kills almost daily. The Corbyns use Google Earth to identify where hogs would be, approach from downwind and rely on the dogs. They have a trio of Labrador Retrievers, as well as two Border Collies they use, with two Lab pups in training. Ronald methodically trains pups to become canine hoggers. Where many hog hunters let pit bulls go, then find them when they hear barking, the Corbyns follow the dogs, then use either a shotgun or a .44 Magnum to make the harvests. “The dogs are just like family to me,” Ronald said. “We

use Labs and Border Collies because they’re very smart and obedient. They don’t run all over the place, and they stay close.” Ronald remembers one hunt between Abilene and Fort Worth where the hogs seemed huge. In fact, Darrell killed a 500-pound sow. “I asked the landowner why the hogs are getting so big,” Ronald remembered. “He said ‘Because I’m feeding them.’ He was putting out high-protein feed into troughs for his cattle, and the hogs would eat it up, then go sit in the bushes and burp all day.” Even as the hogs continue to multiply, the Corbyns will continue to make a difference, one kill at a time. “We’ve probably killed a thousand of them just around Fredericksburg,” Darrell said.

Blaze orange clothing can save a life   A condition known as “early blur” is a menace to hunters that can potentially lead to tragic results if safety measures are not taken beforehand. “Early blur” is simply a combination of sight and sound factors that can cause a hunter to mistake another person for a deer. Hunter safety programs always have stressed the importance of positively identifying any target before shooting. But there’s another way a person in the outdoors can be protected from his careless fellow

outdoorsmen — the use of “blaze orange” clothing. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says studies by the military, universities and clothing industries have shown this color to be the best for hunters’ protection. The department feels the use of daylight fluorescent orange is important enough that it requires all participants in public hunts on wildlife management areas to wear at least 400 square inches of the material on their outer clothing.

Ear protection is essential to hearing health   An often forgotten aspect of ‘Safety First’ while hunting is keeping your ears covered. The noise of gunfire might diminish quickly, but when the ringing in the ears disappears, hearing damage may already have been done.   A few shots fired while hunting might not cause immediate harm but the noise of a 12-gauge shotgun blast has a momentary sound pressure level higher than

the takeoff of a jet airliner. A wide variety of protection devices are available which enable every shooter to find a comfortable and effective means of preventing hearing damage. The familiar earmuffs provide excellent protection. Other gunners prefer one of the several types of earplugs. Shooting glasses should also be a part of every hunter’s equipment.

Answering the critics’ call about hog killing Left unchecked, wild hogs will decimate deer population Once Ronald and Darrell Corbyn launched their website to help publicize their services, they began receiving hate mail from animal rights activists (mostly in other countries). Corbyn posted an article on the site for the uninitiated in hopes of raising awareness as to how big a problem feral hogs pose.   Corbyn asked readers to consider these points before making up their minds: 1. Feral hogs are an alien species to the U.S. They have few natural predators, and they breed at alarming rates. 2. Feral hogs kill and eat fawns, young livestock, small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. 3. Wild hogs compete with and steal food, land and other resources from native animals that are supposed to be here. To let them get out of control is essentially signing the death warrant for many of those

animals. Add on to that hundreds of millions of dollars in crop damage, erosion, habitat destruction and countless damage to property, and people should begin to see that feral pigs have no business in the U.S. Corbyn points out details about the following “solutions”: Relocation — In most cases, this transfers the problem to somewhere else. “It’s not a realistic solution considering that in Texas alone there are several million feral pigs. Trapping — A good way to catch feral pigs, but with relocation not an option, killing them remains the only effective control device. Poisoning — A less humane way, and could kill other animals. Oral contraceptives — Must be added to the food supply of wild pigs and administered during the ovulation cycle of the female. Would also be ingested by other animals and be similar to the use of poisons. Sterilizing — Yes, people suggested this to Corbyn. If hunting can not keep up with reproduction rates, trapping and sterilization would be even

less effective. “Besides,” Corbyn said, “I would bet no one wants to be the one to reach into a trap and castrate a 300-pound boar.” Hunting — Reduces numbers and can alleviate landowner problems. “Using dogs is the best way to reduce their numbers quickly,” he said. “If we leave feral pigs alone, native wildlife will die, and our fragile ecosystem will be greatly disrupted,” he added. Corbyn said states are spending millions trying to get bureaucracies to find a solution. The state of Texas awarded a $500,000 grant for the study and removal of feral pigs. The result was the removal of roughly 3,000 feral pigs — a cost of $166 per hog indirectly removed. Additional landowner costs to factor in include trapping equipment, gas, ammunition and more. On the other hand, Van Zandt County offered a $7 bounty for each wild pig eliminated, resulting in the removal of over 2,000 wild pigs at a cost of just $14,000. “I would prefer to see my tax dollars

being spent at $7 per hog rather than $166,” he said. Corbyn said the problem would be best handled at the county or local level. “Every area and wild pig is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to hog removal,” he said. “There are over a million licensed hunters in Texas that could be used as a resource.”

Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post Every deer hunter in Texas and many from out of state are aware of the ‘Golden Triangle of south Texas’. This area Eagle Pass east to Cotulla and south to Laredo consistently has the greatest number of deer with the largest antlers of anywhere in the country. Here in the Texas Hill Country we have our own ‘Golden Triangle’ which includes Gillespie, Llano and Mason Counties. This area, which attracts hunters from all over the state, as well as out of state, consistently has the largest whitetail deer population of anywhere in the country. For the 2011-12 season the Texas Big Game Awards largest typical whitetail under low fence came from Gillespie County with a Boone and Crockett score of 176 2/8. The largest non-typical under high fence also came from Gillespie County and was taken by Jimmy Slayden with a net score of 224 1/8. Sean Heep, with his 176 /18 Boone and Crockett typical whitetail taken under low fence, has been hunting his whole life. His 2011-12 trophy was shot near the Gillespie-Llano County line on a ranch that has been in his family since 1929. This deer placed first out of 344 entries throughout the entire state. The closest competition had a score of 149 7/8. The next three biggest entries came from that other Golden Triangle. There are some great deer in numbers and in size to be found in this Golden Triangle of the Hill Country.

bass, crappie, striped and hybrid striped bass, catfish, redfish, specked trout, flounder, black drum and others are being taken through the use of illegal nets in large quantities, and without regard for size or bag limits. Shrimp and oysters are often harvested in illegal quantities and from areas closed to harvest. The product is then sold, both in and out of state, to select restaurants, wholesale and retail fish dealers, even to individuals from vacant city lots located in high traffic metropolitan areas. Resolving the problem What can the citizens of Texas do to help resolve this problem? The answer is simple: Get involved. Alert observation by concerned citizens, followed by immediate reporting of the suspected violation, gives the local warden a much-needed edge in catching the criminals. Operation Game Thief is the mechanism that allows citizens to get immediately involved and quickly get that information to the warden. Receiving a tip on illegal activity while it is occurring can make a significant difference in whether or not the violator is apprehended. Even if the offender has left the scene before the warden can get there, there may be critical evidence, or even other witnesses with important information, that can be used to make a case in court. Make the poachers know that citizens won’t sit idly by while they exploit resources. People who have information on law-breakers are asked to call (800) 792-GAME (4263). The reward hotline is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Over the life of the program, more than 28,000 calls have been received and over $1,180,000 in fines assessed. For more information on the Operation Game Thief program, contact Lewis Rather at (512) 389-8801. Thanks to the concerned Texans, more than $200,000 in rewards have been paid.

Management program aims for ‘big bucks’ Thinning of white-tail ranks will help larger bucks to thrive By Ken Esten Cooke

USING THE MANAGED LANDS Deer Permit program, administered by Texas Parks & Wildlife, Sean X. Heep felled this record buck on his land after four years of the management program.

Some landowners may pause to invite a state management program onto their land in an effort to increase the quality of whitetail deer, but for Sean X. Heep, who helps manage a familyowned ranch near Willow City, the proof is in the antlers. Heep and cousin Donovan Hohmann each have nearly 400 acres near the GillespieLlano County line and run a co-op program with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Managed Lands Deer Permit program (see sidebar for description). Through conservation, selective harvesting, supplemental feed

and an extended deer season, Heep has noticed a healthier deer population since they began the program five years ago. “It’s made an unbelievable difference,” said Heep, an avid lifelong hunter. “The first two years are kind of a shock, because you are passing on bucks and taking out deer with trait sets that you don’t want. But in years three, four and five, we have really seen a difference.” In fact, Heep harvested a buck that made the Boone and Crockett record book, considered the benchmark of hunting excellence. The buck scored 176 1/8, and it is the only typical whitetail buck from Llano or Gillespie counties recorded since 1887. Heep also took the award for “Best Typical Whitetail” out of 344 entries at the Texas Big Game Awards in San

Antonio. He and his record buck were on the cover of a recent issue of Texas Trophy Hunter Magazine, and a feature story will follow in the spring. The program involves harvesting deer with unwanted traits, such as five-pointers or those without brow tines. “We call it ‘taking out the trash’,” Heep said, joking. Also, additional months of hunting — October through February — allow landowners to harvest more deer and speed up the benefits of the program. The program’s requirements are stringent, including measuring current deer population and tagging all deer harvested, among others. The program, which has three levels, can also include active habitat management, Cont. on page 19

Wildlife management as well as population management. Heep said the MLDP program may not be for everyone. But he and other family owners, and the six lessees that hunt each year, agreed to try the program in hopes of improving the selection of local harvests and getting them to resemble the larger bucks found in South Texas. “We use trail cameras, and keep extensive records of what we harvest,” Heep said. “There is a time factor because we monitor a lot of different things.” All deer must be tagged, and harvest-

deer and provide supplemental feed, they will see some of the benefits,” he said. “But they won’t get the extended season that way.” He said while the Hill Country is over-populated with deer, the MLDP program is set up to reduce the overall population. Once that happens, Heep said, the existing population has more food sources, both natural and supplemental, the does are healthier and the fawn survival rate increases drastically. As the bucks age, the additional protein supplemental feed goes straight to

the antlers, increasing the size of the trophies most hunters want. Heep said though the success has been shown at his family ranch and other hunters may want a piece of the action, he is loyal to his lessees, six hunters from the Houston area. “They were open to the new program and they had patience,” he said. “In fact, they had the opportunity to come on opening day last year and get our record buck, but they were unable to make it.” “I could talk all day about the advantages,” he said.

Heep said during the drought, they were using a lot of supplemental feed. Heep also keeps in contact with biologist Dale Schmidt of Llano, who helps them keep up with the program’s requirements. He added that landowners don’t have to be on the MLDP program to incorporate parts of it. “As long as they can harvest enough

What is the ‘Managed Lands Saturday, November 3 Deer Permit’ program?

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Managed Lands Deer Permit (MLDP) allows landowners involved in a formal management program to have the most flexible seasons and increased harvest time. Participation requires a written Wildlife Management Plan approved by TPWD, prepared by a biologist or technician, a landowner or designated agent. Though the plans are required, there are no fees to participate. There are three levels of MLDPs (1, 2 and 3). Higher levels offer

5:30 - 10 p.m.

$20 Admission

additional harvest flexibility for the owner, but also have more stringent requirements. Permits are valid only for the property for which they are issued. An approved wildlife management plan will include an annually updated harvest recommendation for does and bucks, determining the number of permits issued. All deer harvested must be tagged with an MLDP by the person who killed the deer.

Got a trophy? Texas Big Game Awards to take entries through Feb. 15 The Texas Big Game Awards is more than a contest. It’s about showing proof there are big deer where people didn’t realize there were and what it takes to grow them. Started as a partnership between the Texas Wildlife Association and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Texas Big Game Awards program is a free, certificate-based effort designed to recognize: the quality of big game animals in Texas, the hunters who harvest them, the landowners who produce such big animals through their management efforts, the importance of hunting’s heritage and the achievements of both young and new hunters. The contest is free to enter. Deadline for entries is Feb. 15, 2013. Hunters Scored Entry Division Texas licensed hunters who

harvest a white-tailed deer, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, javelina or bighorn sheep this season which meets the minimum net score of Boone and Crockett (B&C) requirements for their respective region may be eligible to receive recognition in the “Scored Entry” category. The animal must be a native to Texas and have been wildraised. Animals that were born and bred in captivity and Texas Big Game Awards Official scorers include

Don Steadman 830-997-7217 and

Dan Geistweidt 830-997-4749 subsequently released into the wild are not eligible. The animal must also not have been trapped and/or released at any time during its life, except

under a TPWD-approved university/institute scientific study. The animals must be harvested lawfully in Texas during the current hunting season, with the exception of javelina, which will be accepted until Feb. 15 of the following season to allow for submittal of a clean skull. Any ranch in Texas is eligible for program recognition if a qualifying animal harvested on that ranch is entered into the scored category, the first harvest category or the youth division. Ranch recognition is optional at the landowner’s discretion. All scored entries must be scored by a certified Texas Big Game Awards scorer or an official B&C scorer. All animals making the “Top 5” in each of the low- and high-fenced categories will be rescored (or be initially scored) by an official B&C measurer and the original cape must be provided upon

Hunters help feed the Hill Country’s hungry Hunters can make the most of their sport this season by donating their harvested deer — no mess, no fuss — to a program that helps the needy. “Hunters for the Hungry” is a statewide donation program designed to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in Texas by

connecting hunters with participating deer/meat processors. Since the program started over 20 years ago, the program has provided over two million pounds of meat — nearly nine million servings — to hungry Texans.

During the 2011-2012 season, hunters donated 152,962 pounds of venison, resulting in more than 600,000 servings. O fthat, 6,490 pounds were donated in Gillespie County alone. Gillespie County procesCont. on page 24

Hunters urged to consider Mother Nature Despite being in the middle of Texas where year-round temperatures are generally moderate to warm, the Hill Country is subject to winter temperatures that can bring potential danger in the form of exposure to cold, otherwise known as hypothermia. In fact, people can die when two distinct steps occur: Exposure/Exhaustion The moment the body begins to lose heat faster than it produces heat, the individual is undergoing exposure. That means two things are happening: — An individual voluntarily exercises to stay warm. — His body makes involuntary adjustments to preserve normal temperature in the vital organs. Either response drains energy reserves, and the only way to stop the drain is to reduce are exhausted: not realize this is happening. the degree of exposure. — Cold reaches the brain, — He will lose control of his Hypothermia If exposure continues until depriving him of judgment hands.

Heed Mother Nature’s chill To ward off exposure, exhaustion and ultimately hypothermia, there are four lines of defense an individual can take: 1. Avoid exposure: Beware of the wind. A slight breeze carries heat away from the skin much faster than still air. Wind drives cold air under and through clothing. Wind refrigerates wet clothes by evaporating moisture from the surface. Wind multiples the problems of staying dry. Understand cold. Most hypothermia cases develop in air temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees (Fahrenheit). Most outdoorsmen simply cannot believe such temperatures can be dangerous. They fatally underestimate the danger of being wet at such temperatures. Water that is 50 degrees is unbearably cold. The cold that kills is cold water running down neck and legs, cold water held against the body by sopping clothes, cold water flushing body heat from the surface of clothes. Don’t ask, “How cold is the air?” Instead, ask, “How cold is the water against my body?”


Use clothes to help by putting on raingear before getting wet. Put on wool clothes before the shivering starts. 2. Terminate Exposure: If staying dry and warm under existing weather conditions is not possible, terminate exposure by using the clothes that are available. Be brave enough to give up getting that buck or wild turkey. Get out of the wind and rain. Build a fire if staying outdoors and concentrate on making camp as secure and comfortable as possible. Never ignore shivering. Persistent or violent shivering is clear warning that an individual is on the verge of hypothermia. Forestall exhaustion by making camp while there is still a reserve of energy. Allow for the fact that exposure greatly reduces normal endurance. People may think they are doing fine when the fact that they are exercising is the only thing preventing them from going into hypothermia. If exhaustion forces an individual to stop, however briefly: — The rate of body heat pro-

duction instantly drops by 50 percent or more. — Violent incapacitating shivering may begin immediately. — The individual may slip into hypothermia in a matter of minutes. For outdoorsmen like those in a hunting party, make the best-protected member of the group responsible for calling a halt before the least-protected member becomes exhausted or goes into violent shivering. 3. Detect hypothermia: If the group is exposed to wind, cold and wet, think hypothermia. Watch each member for the following symptoms: — Uncontrollable fits of

shivering. — Vague, slow, slurred speech. — Memory lapses. Incoherence. — Immobile, fumbling hands. — Frequent stumbling. Lurching gait. — Drowsiness (to sleep is to die). — Apparent exhaustion. Inability to get up after a rest. 4. Treatment: The victim may deny that he is in trouble. Believe the symptoms, not the patient. Even mild symptoms demand immediate, drastic treatment. — Get the victim out of the wind and rain.

•Don’t swerve. Since the most serious crashes occur when drivers swerve, a driver when encountering a deer in the road should hold on to the steering wheel tightly, continue along in his/ her lane of traffic and brake firmly. •Notice the landscape. If in an area where roads divide agricultural fields from woody areas, or in curvy roads that cut through passes between hills, drive with particular care. •Read the signs. Road signs often indicate where deer are likely to cross the road. These signs are posted in areas known to have large deer populations. •Watch the weather forecast. Changing weather often means more wildlife movement. Prepare for seasonal changes with fresh wiper blades, fully-functioning headlights, a full radiator and wiper fluid reservoir and a spare tire in good shape. As an extra precaution, always carry emergency gear such •Keep eyes peeled, scan- as flashlights, jumper cables ning alongside the road and and signal flares. into the distance ahead.

There were an estimated 1.23 million deer-vehicle collisions in the United States between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 3012, which cost more than $4 billion in vehicle damage. Prevent accidents With Texas notorious as one of the top 10 states in which vehicles befall accidents with deer, it is always a good idea to watch for four-legged pedestrians along roadways in the Hill Country. Motorists should keep a close watch for animals that occasionally wander onto the highway, especially at night. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) biologists say that, in years like this one where there has been ample rain, the environment supports an increase in wildlife population. To help protect against the rampant roadway intrusions, drivers should adhere to the following IIHS tips:

Welcome Hunters

high-beam headlights when there is no oncoming traffic. The high beams will reflect off deer’s eyes to warn of their presence. •Don’t rely on whistling. Drivers should not rely on unproven deer whistles. Likewise, don’t count on deer fences or reflectors to be an effective enough deer deterrent. All it takes is one deer on the roadway. •Buckle up. Always wear seat belts. •Don’t touch. If a driver strikes a deer, he/she should not touch the animal. An injured deer will be frightened and can act erratically, causing further injury to itself or anyone around it. If the deer is blocking the highway, call the police. “Drivers need to stay focused and alert at all times, but especially at this time of year when deer activity increases,” TxDOT spokesman John Hurt said. It’s unlawful to possess a deer or part of a deer that has been hit by a vehicle. More information on wildlife laws is available online at http://www.tpwd.state. general/penalties/.
