officers urge motorists to observe school zone rules

Arriving for the first day of the 2012-13 school year, mom Christine Johnson leads her first, third and fifth graders into Starkey Elementary on Monday morning before the 7:50 a.m. bell. The entrance and halls were full of parents helping their youngsters find classrooms and teachers on the first day, and some parents were as emotional about the start of school as their young children.

all Kerrville area schools are back in session as of monday, aug. 27. this is a time when Kerrville's motorists will face an increase in traffic congestion on our roadways.

She is still undergoing treatment at the Shriners Pediatric Burn Unit in Galveston. according to her grandfather, C.a. martin, Campbell is currently in week four of a 12-week intensive care stay. She has undergone multiple surgeries and will endure at least weekly grafting surgeries over the next eight weeks. “She’s healthy, but it’s a big burn. She’s responding as she’s supposed to,” said C. a. martin. “the grafting is an amazing process. You can regenerate your own skin every seven days and then they use that in the surgeries.” if the grafting process continues to go well, at the end of the 12 weeks, Campbell will be moved into an apartment in the

KiSD Board joins lawsuit against state ByB onnie a rnoLd Staff Writer

Superintendent Dan troxell, by his own description, reluctantly asked Kerrville iSD trustees to vote to have KiSD join a school finance lawsuit at their aug. 21 meeting. Continuing school funding cuts plus inaction by consecutive Legislatures have convinced him of this, he said. trustees also agreed to approve a resolution pressing the state to re-examine the Staar student testing system; set the new tax rate at the same amount as last year; and chose an option for KiSD’s designation as “wealthy” under the state’s chapter 41 rules. Lawsuit on school finance troxell first described state budget cuts for last school year and this school year, saying the texas Legislature budget cuts took $2,460,000 plus $300,000 from KiSD over those two budgets. the administration responded by deleting, through attrition, 15.5 central office jobs, 11 teaching positions and nine campus aides. they also cut $563,500 in supply

Leading in learning Schreiner provost is ‘all in’ on SU’s philosophy By L arry W iLLiams Staff Writer

it’s not often that a person finds a job that fits their philosophies and ideals perfectly, but Dr. Charlie mcCormick believes he has found just that as the provost and vice president for academic affairs at Schreiner University. mcCormick never really saw himself in higher education in his early years. He describes himself as an average student in middle school and high school in Snyder, texas, who was involved in choir and sports, among other activities. He followed in his family’s footsteps to abilene Christian University where he began studying to be an architect. after quickly learning that architecture wasn’t for him, he found himself deciding what direction to go. “i realized there was a lot more to being an architect than just getting to design a building. i can’t say exactly how my path led to

english, but i had always loved literature and there is something about being an english major that is appealing to a young person who is trying to figure out what it all means,” mcCormick said. even while studying english, he didn’t have a clear direction as to what he would do with the degree. He didn’t seem to be on the usual track and wasn’t overly excited about studying the written word. “i discovered pretty quickly that really a lot of what i enjoyed was oral culture and oral stories, not just what was written. i wasn’t sure that people studied that sort of stuff, but i discovered there was a discipline that considered it pretty relevant and important, and that was anthropology,” mcCormick said. that interest ultimately led him to texas a&m University where he earned a master’s degree in cultural anthropology. Narrowing his scope even further following that experience, he decided to pursue a Ph.D. in folklore and folklife. “By that point i had decided that i wanted a career in higher education,” mcCormick said. For his doctoral work, he and his wife Cayce moved to Philadel-

phia, Pa. to allow him to attend the University of Pennsylvania. For the next 17 years, the young couple from texas adjusted to the big-city lifestyle while mcCormick worked on his doctorate and also began doing some adjunct teaching, first at eastern University, then at Cabrini College and the University of Pennsylvania. interestingly, his Ph.D. dissertation was on the phenomena of “cruising” or “cruising the drag,” especially in small towns. He had participated many times in this activity while a young man in Snyder,m and was surprised to learn that it was something that took place universally, not just in his town. “i was interested in how this became a traditional phenomena and how it became, in many ways, demonized in american culture,” mcCormick said. Nearing his graduation, he was hired as a professor in the english department at Cabrini College and eventually began also working as a dean. During this time, Schreiner was conducting a naSee mCCormiCK, Page 7a

Letters to the editor ...

Status of County Veterans memorial questioned To the editor: it is my understanding the addition to the County Veterans memorial is in limbo, despite hundreds of dollars of donations just sitting in the county’s coffers. it is our understanding the citizens committee appointed by Judge tinley has failed to even meet to recommend the criteria for a veteran, K.i.a. name to be added to the memorial. the procedure as we understand it; the committee makes recommendations, then it is placed on the court agenda for public comments, then it is voted on by the court, to establish the eligibility criteria. it is my opinion and that of some other veterans the forgoing committee and public recommendations are totally unnecessary and places the court open to criticism. We recommend a simple solution: the family or persons requesting the veteran’s name be added, presents verification from his or her Dept. of Defense DD214 that is part of their permanent records. this form lists the “Home of record” stated by the veteran at the time of their enlistment.

this statement is irrefutable proof the veteran joined the service to serve the people of Kerr Co. this declaration by the veteran should supersede any other criteria, such as place of birth, school attended, place of enlistment or desires of family or friends. this official document, signed by the veteran, clearly justifies who should be honored by the people of Kerr Co., for their ultimate sacrifice. it eliminates any perception of subjective consideration, claims of favoritism or bias by the court or appointed committee. the veterans themselves have determined their eligibly. No reasonable person can disagree. We respectfully submit that this has gone on long enough, and request the court take action to resolve the matter aSaP. Hope your action will enable the project to be completed by Veterans Day 11-1112. any assistance we can provide in addition to the fund raising, we will gladly provide. – respectfully, Bennie m.

Pictured are, from left, Lynda Ables & George Eychner (kneeling); (back row) Kristen Johle, Milton Dare, Kyle Bond, Sue Tiemann and Misty Kothe.

rotarians assist in providing a ‘light’ Christmas to area the rotary Club of Kerrville is spearheading an extensive project for additional Christmas decorations in the historic area of downtown, including a 30-foot lighted tree at the corner of main and Sidney Baker on the courthouse grounds and white lights outlining  31 buildings and decorated lamp posts along Water and earl Garrett Streets. the civic and service club has agreed to pay 20 percent  of the $31,500 cost of the tree and its 18,500 mini lights, and to join with downtown businesses and other donors in covering the cost of lights outlining most buildings in what's considered the historic area along Water between Clay and Jefferson, and on earl Garrett between Water and main. rotarians also will pay 100 percent of the cost of having lamp posts in that area wrapped in garland and white lights and to be topped off with red bows. owners of the former Schreiner Department Store and the Kerr arts and Cultural Center have separate agreements to outline their buildings in white lights during the Christmas season, and the City of Kerrville will have similar lighting on the new city hall.  the Cailloux Foundation will decorate Peterson Plaza.  the former Schreiner mansion, now a history museum owned by Schreiner University, also will be part of the plan.  the Christmas Decor Company, a local firm, has agreed to sell the tree to the committee for this project at a

discount from the retail price of $37,900, and Kerrville Public Utility Board will erect and disassemble the 1,900-pound structure for at least this year. the committee hopes to find a business or organization that will provide 520 cubic feet of storage space for the disassembled tree. George eychner, immediate past president of the 170-member rotary Club of Kerrville and chairman of the new lighting committee, said, "our group hopes that other owners and tenants  throughout the downtown area will join in outlining their buildings after they see the attractiveness of the streets covered in this initial plan." He emphasizes that the project will be environmentally friendly, employing LeDs (light-emittingdiodes) which use far less electric power than traditional incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. the committee is launching an appeal for financial support for the project from businesses and professional groups, other civic and service organizations, foundations and the public to cover the balance of the project.  eychner says that  it's especially important to have money for the tree in hand before the end of September, to guarantee arrival in time for the holidays. members of the committee in addition to eychner are rotary Club members  Kristen Johle, milton Dare, Kyle Bond and Sue tiemann, veteran civic leader Lynda ables, Louise Kirby of the Women's


Leah suggested that it would be nice to visit a college campus next year during camp week. She added, "You know everyone,m mimi. You can make it happen." a few days after the children went home i took off to H-e-B to refill my extremely empty pantry. i ran into Janie Groll, who i hadn't seen in a long time. Janie and i chatted a few minutes when she told me she had been working at Schreiner University for six years in admissions. Part of her job is giving tours of the campus. Needless to say, mimi-Papa Camp 2013 is already penciled in for one of those tours. ‘Nuf said.

tionwide search to fill the position of provost and vice president. mcCormick remembers information coming across desk about the open position, but at the time it didn’t interest him and he gave it little thought. after a call from a friend, he decided to pursue it further. “my friend who was a provost at another institution told me, ‘You should really look at that institution. i was looking at it and it sounds just like what you are interested in.’ the opportunity to come back to texas of course was also a draw,” mcCormick said. What he discovered was a university that was more focused on challenging students to learn instead of just building the reputation of the institution. “this institution is so committed to helping students from a wide variety of backgrounds be successful. that is different than a lot of institutions that are more focused on getting themselves in a position to recruit top students, and then they will become an ex-

cellent institution. Schreiner’s position is different. they said, ‘We are going to create an educational experience that will help a wide variety of students, regardless of their background, be successful.’ that is very ambitious, but also very compelling. it certainly was to me,” mcCormick said. He was hooked, and in the summer of 2009 he moved his wife and two daughters to Kerrville and took the position at Schreiner. Both the position and the area have delivered what he had hoped. at Schreiner, mcCormick oversees the overall academic program and focuses specifically on things like working with faculty on curriculum, faculty development and academic support.

“as a faculty member you have a lot of input on what is going on inside your classroom. You get a lot of opportunity to work with students inside the classroom. as an administrator, in some ways, you lose some of the ability to work one-on-one with students, but you get the opportunity to work with even more students. that’s good and i’ve enjoyed being able to be involved in student life and student learning in that way,” mcCormick said. in addition to his work at Schreiner, mcCormick enjoys reading and is still active in anthropological research. His current project is gathering information on women bullfighters in the United States who fought from 1952 to 1965.

three generations of the Grimes family have joined the National Society of the Sons of the american revolution,  one of the nation's oldest and largest patriotic organizations for men. John m.B. Grimes, his son John a.  Grimes and  grandsons John Hunter Grimes, Walker thomas Grimes, austin Barr Cates and Carson James Cates were inducted  by Past President Gerald irion and Vice President Winston Scott of the Hill Country Chapter of the Sar.  the accompanying photo shows irion in a Continental army officer's uniform and Scott in the uniform of a Colonial marine, forerunner of today's U. S. marine Corps. the  Grimes family is wellknown in this area through ownership of the Grimes Funeral Chapels in Kerrville and Bandera and participation in community and civic activities. membership in the Sar is open to men who can document having at least one ancestor who served in state militias or the Continental army under George Washington or in the Navy under John Paul Jones, or helped the revolutionary cause through donations of such

things as weapons, ammunition, medical supplies, uniforms, blankets, cash and food for the troops and their horses and mules. the Sar promotes respect for the american Flag, the Founding Fathers and those who served the american cause, and supports veterans, teaching of american history in the schools, rotC programs and ceremonies honoring our war dead. men who believe that they may qualify for membership can obtain help from Sar genealogists. the Hill Country Chapter of the Sar meets at rails, a Cafe at the Depot for  programs and luncheons at 11:30 a.m. on the second tuesdays of September through November and January through may. all current and prospective Sar members  and  Daughters of the american revolution are welcome.

grams their children are involved in are going to be most important. “We could raise the tax rate by 4 cents and wipe this out in a heartbeat, but we would have to ask taxpayers to vote to raise their own taxes,” troxell said. troxell said four major texas lawsuits over school funding are in the works, plus a fifth one filed by a group of parents. the first four are challenging “adequacy,” as in not enough money being allotted to schools; and “equity,” that every district doesn’t collect or get the same amount. He said under “equity,” each district should define “quality education” for students, then let the district add to that by choice. the aug. 21 KiSD meeting was the last chance for KiSD to join troxell’s recommendation out of the four major lawsuits, one led by thompson and Horton, LLP, and trustees voted unanimously to do so. troxell said David thompson represents 83 out of the more than 1,000 texas school districts, and the majority of students by population in the state, as his clients include the largest districts such as Northside and Northeast in San antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Cy-Fair, and round rock. He said that question about student populations will be important to a judge and this is scheduled in a travis County court on oct. 12. “David thompson’s goal is to establish a rational and understandable funding system actually tied to high standards rather than simply leveling down to fit the funds available. His suit is the only one that makes sense to me,” troxell said. “i didn’t want to ask, but we’ve tried everything else.” the cost to the district is $5,472.30 per year with funding proposed to come from closing and combining central office accounts as of the end of the 201112 budget year. But the attorney has said the largest involved districts have paid enough to cover the costs. troxell said he has high hopes at the travis County court level in october, but doesn’t know what to expect at the texas Supreme Court out six months later, because it will be appealed no matter

the outcome in austin. opposition to state testing the other major item troxell asked trustees to consider was a resolution on the high stakes of the present standardized testing of texas public school students, the Staar testing that students first took last school year. after his explanation, trustees voted unanimously to approve the resolution. troxell said the administration’s position is that statewide testing is a positive thing for schoolchildren, that ensures the state-adopted curriculum is taught and the performance of all children is progessing. He said the current system must be re-examined because it’s underfunded, too complex and the rules don’t consistently benefit children. He explained who created the system and said the resolution requests the 83rd Legislature review the entire texas public school testing system. this resolution has already been approved by 586 of the state’s 1,040 districts, more than half in the state, and their petitions represent 3.5 million students. He gave two examples of what he called “grave concerns” with the current testing system. troxell said a hypothetical tivy High School student could score high enough on three required math class end-of-course exams in ninth through 11th grades so he is not required to retake any math eoC test; and could pass all three classes with grades of 70, but still not graduate due to low math performance according to the state requirements. to answer “why,” troxell said the state will, but hasn’t yet, set an artificial number as a high enough cumulative eoC passing score to graduate. “they haven’t said what that is, but it’s not the same as ‘minimum performance level;’ it’s higher, and the student would be told to take the eoCs again to get a higher score so the cumulative score will be high enough to suit the state. only if you’re a junior there will be only one chance to retake the test before graduation,” he said. His second example was that the state has not shared its statewide test item analysis from 2011-12. So, if 30 percent of seventh grade Peterson middle School students missed the same question on a

Staar math exam, it tells teachers one of two things. either they taught the information for that answer poorly; or the question was badly written. But if they don’t have the statewide results, they can’t tell if the curriculum and instruction should be modified or not. one of the results of underfunding extends to the tea staff, he said, where district officials are told the state agency is now understaffed and cannot answer questions, or get the cumulative passing score set and announced, or get the first statewide results distributed until February. troxell’s presentation said passage of the resolution will assist the texas association of School administrators’ legislative liaison and other education advocates during the Legislative session beginning in January in the continuing effort to ensure that the testing system of fully funded, less complex and student-centered. 2012-13 tax rate each year school districts must adopt a tax rate, and KiSD trustees had an ordinance proposed for their approval. the administration proposed a tax rate of $1.04 per $100 valuation for the General Fund and $.04 for the interest and Bonded Debt Fund, for a total rate of $1.18 per $100. this is the same tax rate as for the 2011-12 fiscal year. the board held a public hearing prior to their regular board meeting on aug. 21, but no one attended as a citizen to speak to the board about this rate. trustees then voted 5-0 to approve this tax rate. Chapter 41 update troxell and assistant Superintendent for Finance michael Carrales gave trustees an update on KiSD’s status as a Chapter 41 “wealthy district.” they said the present system established by the texas Legislature dates back to court cases in 1971, 1990 and ’91 after which all three were overturned by the courts as unconstitutional. Under the texas education Code, Chapter 41 makes provisions for certain school districts to share their local tax revenue with other districts. taxable value of property that lies within the district borders is divided by what the state calls “weighted average daily attendance” or WaDa. Under state

Wednesday, august 29, 2012

rules, not every individual student counts as one for attendance. Some such as special needs children are counted as 1.5. Chapter 41 establishes equalized wealth levels and the maximum property tax base that a school district is allowed to retain, troxell said. Under Chapter 41, KiSD’s 2011 wealth per weighted aDa was $2,255,240,858. Divided by the WaDa (adjusted for transfers), KiSD’s wealth per WaDa is $406,787. So for the 2012-13 school year, the state has said districts between the old arbitrary number of $319,500 and $476,500, the figure tied to austin iSD’s wealth, are subject to Chapter 41 but don’t owe the state any money. KiSD’s cost of “recapture” for this school year will be zero dollars, troxell said. “Some others are getting wealthier faster than KiSD,” he said. While KiSD doesn’t owe the state any money, they do have to choose an option to more equalize the “wealth” of the district, and then notify the state’s Commissioner of education of that choice. they had a list of five options that included consolidating operations with another district; detaching property; purchasing WaDa from the texas education agency, purchasing WaDa from another district; and consolidating the tax base with another (poorer) district. trustees agreed with troxell’s and Carrales’ recommendation to choose option three, to purchase WaDa (hypothetical students) from tea. troxell said either of two things would lead to KiSD sending money to austin. one would be a large new subdivision with expensive homes, but no kids sent to the schools. the other would be new businesses that increase property values and therefore the wealth of the district. Carrales said this item would be on their agenda for action in the September meeting. new hire trustees voted at the end of the meeting to approve the hiring of travis Cochran as the district’s new information technology director. Cochran started in his new post monday, after working in a similar job for the City of Kerrville for four and a half years.

Currents ... with Tara Bushnoe, Upper Guadalupe River Authority some remember the river as clearer than today Was the Guadalupe river once clearer than it is today? Have you ever heard someone start a story by saying, “Back when i was younger...” this phrase could be followed by a variety of statements including a nostalgic reference to the past or a memory exaggerated by time. recently, several people have told me that the Guadalupe river in Kerr County looks murkier than it was when they were children. is this just a perceived difference or has the clarity of the river actually changed over time? Decreased clarity or murkiness is primarily due to the accumulation of sediments or algae in the water column. a variety of factors contribute to the increase of these

substances in the river including erosion due to land use changes. For example as roads, buildings, and driveways are constructed, the vegetation that once held the soil in place is removed and the soil particles are vulnerable to erosion. When it rains, water runs quickly off of these impervious surfaces on its way to the nearest creek, picking up soil particles along the way. in the Hill Country, overgrazing on caliche soils and the use of caliche as road base can result in widespread wind erosion of these fine clay particles. after being carried by the wind, the caliche can be deposited in the river and due

to the small particle size, it stays suspended in the water column which makes the water look cloudy. also, during times of drought when the river is shallow and slow moving, green algae can proliferate in nutrient-rich water which results in a cloudy, greenish tint. Decaying plant and animal matter can add to a cloudy appearance by floating in the water column. Clarity of water can be measured through several water quality tests including turbidity, total suspended solids, and secchi depth. UGra has collected routine water quality monitoring data at several locations throughout Kerr County continuously since the early 1980s. a comparison of total suspended solids and turbidity over this time period shows no statistically significant decrease in clarity over the past 30 years. So why does the water seem

cloudier than it used to be? Shallow water can also give the perception of being murky, but not actually contain a higher concentration of suspended solids. During times of low flow, sediment builds up on the river bottom, and as the water levels drop, the water appears less clear because you are seeing more of the dark sediment build up, rather than the scoured rock or gavel bottom of the river. Since it has currently been several years since the last “big flood” this could explain why the water looks cloudier, but why test results do not confirm the observations. another possible explanation is that the river has become murkier in specific locations that are separate from the sites i evaluated. Keep your questions and observations coming! i appreciate all the information, concerns, and anecdotes i receive from fellow river watchers.

Partners in ministry, the Pregnancy resource Center, and other individuals in the Kerrville Community have teamed up to bring this event to Kerrville. the organization's newest tour, “reWiND,” reveals how and why a decision to save sex for marriage can benefit students both immediately and down the road. the event promotes abstinence and purity. Srt is a voice of hope and encrouagement to those who have decided to wait and offers a second chance to those tired of playing russian roulette with their sex lives. the Srt tour team, a group of 20-somethings from across the U.S., encourages students to control their bodies and hold out for something better – sexual intimacy within the bonds of marriage. During a high-energy, action packed event, tour team members share their stories of success, failure, forgiveness and hope using skits, humor, drama, commercial parodies and personal testimonies.

City water will be available as a backup for the system, but the system will have a backflow valve to prevent any of the water from getting back into the city water source. that feature is required of the system. the rainwater catchment system will cost just over $120,000. the Headwaters Groundwater Conservation District provided $5,000 toward the project and the Upper Guadalupe river authority committed $10,000 toward the costs. a grant will be submitted to LCra asking for their participation in the project through their Community Development Partnership Program. Personnel in the Kerr County road and Bridge Department have provided in-kind services to demolish the old building and prepare the pad for the new building. additionally, they will provide help in installing the rainwater catchment system. their participation in the project has provided the county taxpayers with huge cost savings. additionally, the sale of recycled items from the demolition has offset significant costs of the project. Work on the building infrastructure will continue in the weeks to come with the delivery of the metal building slated for october. once the building arrives, crews will assemble

the building and then the inside can be finished out. road and bridge crews have also begun renovation of the parking areas on the property and a new lighted sign to be installed on the texas 27 side of the complex has been ordered. Participants and visitors to the upcoming Kerr County Fair in october will notice the improvements in progress and by January, all Kerr County residents will be able to take pride in the new event center. Phase ii of the overall plan will be to replace the existing exhibit hall with another building, doubling the size of the venue. that building will be built parallel to the event center when funds are available in the future. When completed, that new building will also be connected to the rainwater catchment system, which will provide even more available water in the future. take time to drive by and see the progress as the construction continues and look forward to all the events that will come to this community. those events will bring people to stay in our motels and rV parks, eat in our restaurants and boost our sales tax revenue. it will be good news for the Kerrville and Kerr County economy!

Kerrville each day to school. When we were on the Divide, the ranch was in real County, and our kids were supposed to go to school in Leakey. But it was a winding road with steep hills and it was often icy. that far out, the kids had to leave before sun-up in the mornings to catch the school bus. i remember one year the bus driver stayed at one ranch out there during the week and kept the bus with him there. it was a hard deal to know what to do. our kids could go to rocksprings or we could pay tuition to the Divide School. We decided to buy a house in Kerrville and sent the two of them to Holy Cross, Starkey elementary, the middle school and tivy High School. When my husband ross was young, a school teacher was living in an extra house on a nearby ranch who taught the kids on the ranch. He and his siblings went to school there on weekdays and went home on Fridays. i knew some kids who rode horseback every day from above ingram to Kerrville to go to school. and one mother who taught at a small school up there above Hunt and took her two young daughters on a horse to school with her every day. We had good friends who came to Kerrville from Harper for school. i don’t know why except maybe there weren’t enough grades in Harper. Center Point School had 10 grades while Kerrville had 11. Some ranch families rented bedrooms in people’s houses in town for their children to live in during the week so they could go to Kerrville schools. i knew some of tivy’s football players who came into Kerrville from Harper to go to tivy High School and play football, and there were a couple from Center Point. one girl i knew came to school in Kerrville with her father when he came from Center Point to go to work in the mornings. then she walked home after school from Kerrville to Center Point. in ross’ family, they went to school some at Hunt and stayed there all week. in one family, the grandfather lived in Kerrville and when the

mother married, she split her time between Kerrville and the ranch. another girl in our neighborhood on the Divide lived off Paint Creek road north of Highway 41. She taught school in Junction and rode horseback to get there and back. Just think, somebody had to fix food for her and for the kids she taught so they could carry it all that way. there were no school buses before the 1940s and ‘50s, when they became more common. Families in town who had extra bedrooms would have kids staying with them, and the kids didn’t have to be from their own families. at one house, some boys and a tivy football coach lived there a couple blocks from tivy High School and the lady, mrs. Henke, used to cook lunch for them in the middle of the school days. it wasn’t easy any way to get to town to get some schooling. But by the time they got to tivy, they were loyal only to tivy. the Kerrville school district built tivy elementary School in 1927 (on Barnett Street) and the first football field was behind it. it had bleachers on the tivy Street side. i remember going to Pep Squad practice. We wore long white pants, a white shirt like a t-shirt or blouse, with a gold shirt over it with “tivy” in blue on the back. We thought we were all dressed up. When the football team practiced on the football field, we went to Schreiner institute’s field. there was no band; we just marched, so many steps one way and turned and so many steps another direction. and it wasn’t grass, it was just dirt or mud. one time we turned this corner, and this one girl lost her right shoe on the turn in the mud. it was too far away to pick up, and we laughed at her marching with one shoe. the railroad track ran a short distance from the tivy School building, and through the Schreiner campus and past the Legion Hospital (now the Veterans Hospital). the engineer would toot a whistle at each crossing at the city streets and each street was a different sounding whistle. During World War i when the boys in this area got together to go to war, we all went to the train depot. Before my sister married

this young man, he went to the war when i was about six years old. i still see them leaning out of the windows of the passenger car, waving and saying goodbye to their mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and girlfriends. Several of them were from the turtle Creek area and my mother and dad had a big supper for them before they left. i think the boys went first to Camp Bowie near Fort Worth. Some didn’t come back, and we have streets named after three of them, the Baker boy, and Francisco Lemos and earl Garrett. after the war, we lived in a house south of the Guadalupe river, and we crossed the G Street bridge to see him come home. the boys came home on the train and it was a glorious meeting. my sister married him 92 years ago this month. i thought later about people in my great-grandmother’s generation who saw boys and family members go off to the Civil War, before she died in 1918. i came into Kerrville for school in eighth grade. mrs. Franklin was my homeroom teacher, and her husband was the tivy High principal. She was a Hamilton and related to an early Kerr County clerk. they were friends of my parents, so i felt comfortable with her. those who had grown up in Kerrville schools knew each other and did things their way. We new kids sat in the back of the room together. mrs. Franklin got a class to write a history of the people in Kerr County one school year before i went to school there. i learned to drive at age 13, and me and my brother would drive back and forth from the ranch. i remember one girl from the Divide whose mother had died, and her dad would come in on Fridays to pick her up. everyone knew everybody in the neighborhood. i graduated in 1930 in the auditorium at the tivy elementary School with 31 people in my class. Before that, until the late

1920s, graduations were held on the second floor of Pampell’s downtown where he had a hall with a stage. after i graduated, i wanted to go to college, but my dad didn’t have the money to send me. i took a typing, shorthand and bookkeeping course. For Christmas, my dad gave me a small manual Underwood typewriter. Women went through rough times and were the most courageous of all. they didn’t have electricity probably until the 1940s or later on turtle Creek and even later on the Divide. there was electricity in town; Capt. Schreiner saw to that. they had electricity in town when i was a kid. the electric plant was down on the river at the dam. if women had electric irons, they just had to do it when the electricity was on, and it wasn’t 24 hours a day. my mother had irons that were heated in the fireplace or on the wood-burning stove.

Financial Peace University classes begin Sept. 9 more than one and a half million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave ramsey’s Financial Peace University. Updated in summer 2012, the now nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success. the course meets once a week where a different lesson is taught by ramsey on DVD followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing. FPU will be held in Kerrville at First Baptist Church, located at 625 Washington Street, and begins Sunday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. Contact Heather mitchell at 257-5033 for more information or to register. Since its inception in 1994 FPU

has helped more than 1.5 million families positively change their financial future. through commonsense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. on average families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class nearly, 94 percent of those families budget regularly. “FPU will not only transform the way you handle money, but also your marriage and other areas of your life,” says ramsey. “this isn’t a boring financial class. We make learning about money fun and easy to understand so people in every situation can benefit from

the information.” ramsey knows first-hand the pain that financial stress can cause. after creating a net worth of more than a million dollars by age 26, he quickly lost it all. Since then, ramsey has helped families and individuals across the country learn how to get control of their finances and avoid debt so they don’t have to experience the same pain he did. FPU lessons also include guest speakers rachel Cruze, speaker and daughter of Dave ramsey; Jon acuff, author of Wall Street Journal best-seller Quitter and popular blog Stuff Christians Like; and Chris Hogan, counselor and speaker for the Dave ramsey organization. the revised FPU will be offered

through churches and community centers. after purchasing a membership, each participant receives a workbook, Dave ramsey’s Complete Guide to money, an envelope system and an audio CD library. Participants will also have access to budgeting forms and mP3s of all the lessons.

Justin Baccus at the Comfort location said he also will be the manager at Kerrville when it opens. terry and Sandy Hamilton own the Chicken express restaurants in Comfort and Llano and are owners of the new Kerrville site.

church and small retail building on it, which would have to be demolished. the location sits across North Street from the Kerrville Police Department. Company representatives requested a Conditional Use Permit from council in June, which was approved; after the Planning and Zoning Commission also approved that request earlier that month. Gasoline stations with convenience stores are a permitted use in the central business district with conditions, and some of those conditions were discussed with council, chiefly fencing along any property line adjoining a residential district which is the case with this site. they also discussed lighting to be designed and installed to prevent glare or light from being emitted onto adjacent property, especially the residential area. there are four other Valero / Diamond Shamrock locations in Kerrville and one in Center Point. Calls to the Valero headquarters in San antonio to find out a probable construction schedule and eventual opening of the new business were not returned by mid-monday.

stunned the attendees, none moreso than fourth grader Charrles Ballay iii. “Who is the young boy directing the choir?” he asked. the boy’s face immediately turned pale and an awkward silence enveloped the entire church. Finally, an adult music director answered the archbishop. He congratulated the boy and the choir on a job well-done. “if Catholic Schools produce just one child like this one,” he said, “then it is very much worth it.” the plight that falls upon Catholic archdiocese around the world comes in finding the funds to provide faith formation as well as education to the youth of the community. “Faith is a gift,” Garcia-Siller said. “But it is also a choice.” He shared the story of Notre Dame School and how Father Henry Kemper fought to open the school and to keep it open, even asking his family to subsidize the

of montgomery, texas; two stepchildren, tracy moreno and husband roy of Beeville, and trey Sparks of mountain Home; two brothers, Jesse Vincent "Bubba" Zorn and wife Ginger of aransas Pass, and Joseph anthony "Joe" Zorn and wife Kay of Sinton; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many other family members and friends who love him will miss him. Private family services will be held at a later date. Wright's Funeral Parlor school expenses in hard times. the school opened in 1912 and boasted of 27 students. Kemper was able to serve students through the Depression and the influenza outbreak that forced him and the nuns of Sisters of Charity of incarnate Word to convert the school into an infirmary for two years. it was Kemper’s faith, the archbishop said, that kept the school going in the beginning, and it is faith of subsequent pastors and parishoners that has kept the school successful since then. “Father Kemper answered the call and now it is up to us,” he said. “Let us celebrate this 100-year legacy of faith by being able to say with one voice ‘Yes’ to God.” He referred back to the Gospel reading for the evening from Joshua 24:15: “as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.” Very fitting words, he said, for all to live by, but in keeping with the theme of the evening he said those words should always be remembered when discussing purpose and need for Catholic schools. Before he exited the church, he stopped and hugged each member of the student honor choir.

Depot CoNtiNUeD From PaGe 1a

ing, the building was used as a residence in Center Point for a time and then moved to Kerrville and then to Boerne years ago, armistead said. “Jay Harpole in Boerne, the current owner of the depot, is bequeathing it back to Center Point, with the proviso that the historical preservation association bears the cost of moving the building,” armistead said. “the depot was built in 1887 and was originally owned by the San antonio and aransas Pass railroad. When the depot was closed in 1970, the railroad was owned by Southern Pacific.” armistead said the building was lived in for a few years by a Southern Pacific employee and then sold. “there were two serious efforts, with the help of the late Kerr County Commissioner Bill Williams, to purchase the depot and bring it back to Center Point. each was declined at the time,” armistead said. “recently mr. Harpole contacted the current Precinct 2 commissioner, Guy overby, with his change of mind to bequeath the depot back to Center Point.”

Balentine returns to Kerr P2K stage the next Playhouse 2000 production - “Crimes of the Heart,” being presented in the VK Garage theater in September - will see the return of one of the company’s co-founders in the role of stage director. Susan Neely Balentine, a graduate of tivy High School and veteran of dozens of local stage productions, will be bringing the show to life. Susan, along with her husband and theatrical partner, the late Doug Balentine, had stepped away from day-to-day leadership of Playhouse 2000 in 2006 when the reins were officially handed over to then Directors Heather and Jeff Cunningham. Health and family issues have kept her “on the sidelines” for several years, but now “Sam,” as she is known by her childhood friends, is making a return to area stages. She was recently seen on-stage in the Point theater’s production of “the Spitfire Grill,” and is now deep into the process of directing Playhouse 2000’s next play. Neely and Balentine had worked together at the Point theater as well as the Hip Pocket theater in Fort Worth before they co-Founded Playhouse 2000 in 1998. together, the pair implemented plans to complete the renovation of Kerrville municipal auditorium into the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing arts. they developed Playhouse 2000’s current structure, combining roles as producers of Kerrville’s Community theater and managers of the Hill County’s grandest performing arts venue. Susan directed many projects for Playhouse 2000, including the 2001 production of “Driving miss Daisy,” 2003’s “the Lion in Win-

ter,” and “one Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” in 2006. She also appeared on-stage in many Playhouse 2000 pieces, including “the Honeymooners,” “the man of Lamancha,” “Pump Boys and Dinettes,” and many more. Neely has also served on the Playhouse 2000 Board of Directors since its founding. a graduate of texas State University, Susan achieved the master of Fine arts degree in acting from trinity University before joining forces with the company of the Hip Pocket theater in Fort Worth, where she first met Doug. She also appeared on- and off-stage with the Jubilee theater and Stage West in Fort Worth and the Dallas theater Center. She and Balentine moved to the Hill Country to take on leadership roles at the Point theater, and then stayed to create a company specifically for Kerrville - Playhouse 2000. “it’s been wonderful to be back,” Susan said, about directing ‘Crimes of the Heart.’ “i’ve been away for so long. i am thankful that everyone in the show seems to be glad i’m back, too.” She continued, “We have such a wealth of talented actors and crew - it’s been a joy to be back at work.” “Crimes of the Heart” is perhaps the best-known play by celebrated Southern playwright Beth Henley. it was made into an award-winning feature film in 1986, starring Sissy Spacek, Diane Keaton and Jessica Lange as the magrath Sisters, three young women who have reunited at their family home because one of them, Babe, has been accused of a serious crime. the play is set “five years after Hurricane Camille,” and is, by turns, comic, poignant, dra-

the present owner has asked the Center Point aHPa to pay the moving costs to move the building from Boerne to the association’s historical park in downtown Center Point, and provide a new foundation there for it to sit on. armistead said two bids were received to move the building, and the least expensive come to $57,500, due to removing the roof to pass under electric lines, separating the building into two parts, reassembling, building the foundation of approximately 1,600 square feet and replacing the metal roof. armistead sees the placement of the Center Point train depot as a centerpiece of their historical park, with other improvements also planned. “if and when the Center Point Historical association can acquire the funds to move the depot, it will be placed on the Center Point Historical Park in the center of town. Donations will be meaningful and appreciated,” he said. armistead said the association is in the process of seeking donations and grants. the Center Point aHPa is a 501(c)3 organization; and donations are tax-deductible by irS standards. the association members are asking for help from the community. Proof of donation receipts will be

provided to donors. Donations can be mailed to CPaHPa, P.o. Box 610, Center Point, tX 78010; or give the donation to one of the association’s primary officers. For more information on the depot project, contact armistead at 6347435, or Betty Lackey at 634-7783. armistead said the Center Point Historical Park dates from about 1998 when a deal was struck with the Peterson Foundation to purchase what had been a junkyard in the middle of town. He said the association volunteers worked to raise their half of the property cost, $47,000 including back taxes on the site; then led a community effort to clean up the former junkyard. the park is on San antonio Street in the middle of town near the american Legion Hall, on about 2.5 acres. there is one other structure already on the property, an old house that armistead said they plan to renovate into the Historical association’s headquarters. they already improved the entrance to the park with a decorative rock wall and gate, and have sold brick pavers for the walkway into the park. railroad history in Kerr County County pioneer Capt.

A Crew from JourneymAn ConstruCtion worked last week to drill the deep pier holes for the new Show Barn at the Hill Country Youth Event Center, as they progress toward creating a foundation for the metal building that will be delivered to Kerr County later.

Schreiner worked to attract a rail line to Kerrville and the first train arrived in 1887, a standard-gauge San antonio & aransas Pass railway over a 70-mile route from San antonio. the event was commemorated with a seven-gun salute and brass band, according to one historian’s book (“When the railroad Leaves town” by Joseph Schwieterman, truman State University Press). the line carried vacationers and sportsmen, who congregated at the masonic Lodge and the saloon in the Weston Building, and also was oriented toward livestock interests. Sa&aP made improvements to the route and replaced a wooden trestle over the Guadalupe river after the 1900 flood and the combination passenger/freight station that burned down in 1912 with a masonry station. Service diminished during the Depression from three to one train per day. Passenger service was eliminated in 1945 and the depot closed in 1946. the last train left Kerrville in may 1970 with no matching fanfare, by all accounts. But it has not been forgotten by many Kerr County residents. Frank thomason Jr. of Center Point said his grandfather Dr. merritt

was the railroad doctor and his family had passes to ride the passenger car whenever they wanted. His grandfather John eventually owned the entire farm, from the river north for two miles and one-half mile wide. the railroad tracks ran across the farm. State Highway 27 generally follows the old rail right of way, and the highway was laid out in 1935, next to the tracks that had been there since 1887. thomason said there were train depots in Boerne, Waring, Welfare, Comfort, Center Point and Kerrville, and his father and grandfather shipped out sheep and goats on the train. the Center Point depot might have included a telegraph office in those days, he said. “i remember, as a boy, running down there to hang over the fence on the farm along the tracks because sometimes the engineer would throw me a Hershey bar out the cab of the engine as the train went by,” thomason said. Cecil Wellborn said when he was a young man working in the fields on family land, his notice to break for lunch came about 11:30 a.m. each day when the train from San antonio came through Center Point to Kerrville. “the railroad went through Wellborn land,” Wellborn

Wine & music Fest this set for weekend the 2012 Kerrville Wine & music Festival will be held during Labor Day Weekend, aug. 31 – Sept. 2. this is the 21st annual celebration of songwriters and texas Wines to be held at the Quiet Valley ranch, 9 miles south of Kerrville on State Highway 16. this year will be the first-ever Brewfest at the fall event featuring texas microbrews and home brewing information. advance prices expire midnight thursday, aug. 30. Not a typical “wine and beer tasting” event, this three-day festival is mostly about the music and will feature three six-hour evening concerts and two twohour afternoon concerts with more than two dozen singersongwriters. there will be seminars from 3:30–5:30 p.m. on Saturday for wine and food pairings, and on Sunday for microbrew tastings. there is an additional fee for the seminars which includes a souvenir wine/beer glass: $10 in advance online and $12 at the Festival wine booth. each of the evening concerts start at 7 p.m. with the outdoor theater gates opening at 6 p.m. the performers for the Friday, aug. 31 evening concert include raina rose (austin), Cary Cooper (richardson), David Jacobs Strain (oregon), the Farewell Drifters (Nashville, tenn.) and Lost & Nameless orchestra (austin). Saturday’s evening concert lineup consists of Gregory alan isakov (Colorado), Dala (toronto, Canada), Kenny White (New York City), Brother Sun (New York, maine, illinois) and Guy Forsyth, (austin). Sunday night will feature andy Gullahorn (Nashville), ruby Jane (austin), ray Bonneville (austin), Javier Chaparro & Salud (austin) and the SteelDrivers (Nashville). the goal for the wine and beer tasting portion of the program is to send guests home with a greater understanding and appreciation for the “spirits” of texas. in recent years, wines from texas have compared favorably to those from France, California and the rest of the world. after 6 p.m. each evening, up to 20 texas wineries and microbreweries will have booths in the main stage theater where they will have tastes, glasses, and bottles of their current wines and brews available for sale. a schedule of events, performer line-up and tickets for the festival as well as information on seminars, performers, camping, arts and crafts vending, rV sites and local accommodations can be found by visiting, or by calling the festival office at 257-3600. You can also e-mail the festival office at

said. “the railroad was on the north side of the river and there was a grain elevator and train station there.” Neal Coldwell iii of Center Point said the train had passenger service until about 1950, and he remembers when tivy High School played thomas Jefferson, football fans came to Kerrville from San antonio on the train. What Gerald Witt of Center Point remembered about the railroad is freight trains of about 10 cars each, and sometimes no cars at all, just an engine and caboose. During the drought of the 1950s here, the train brought boxcars of government-subsidy grain to Center Point for the ranchers, he said. the Sa&aP tracks ran along what is now North Street, across a bridge over Quinlan Creek, curved slightly to Schreiner institute’s train station, then east towards Center Point and Comfort. there were stations at the Va hospital and at Center Point. the end of the railroad line was the livestock pens at Hays and mcFarland streets, and then the turntable at Schreiner and Paschal streets to turn the locomotive. the turntable was manual and turned by men pushing on poles, sometimes “helped” by children who wanted to push, too.

day to set the FY13 tax rate at the same amount as it has been for the FY12 fiscal year, $.4443 per $100 valuation for their maintenance and operation, interest and sinking funds, and lateral roads. the decision required a roll call vote, and all five court members voted yes. Fy13 Budget on the new budget, County Judge Pat tinley offered a public hearing on the 2012-13 budget but no one in the audience asked to speak. on this agenda item, again there was little discussion and the roll call vote had Commissioners Jonathan Letz and Guy overby voting for it, and Commissioners Bruce oehler and Buster Baldwin voting no. tinley broke the tie by voting yes, and the budget was approved 3-2. they narrowly approved a balanced budget with expected expenditures of $26,221, 417 and the same amount of revenue to fund that. reserves – the county’s savings account – were listed at $5,796,799. the budget includes a six percent salary increase for all elected officials, who they have said were skipped in the last raises given; and a 3 percent raise for all other county employees except the maintenance Department where they will get 5.5 percent to bring their pay up to a fairer scale compared to like departments in other counties. oehler said before the vote that he could not vote to raise his own salary and that he would vote no. Baldwin said he had objections to parts of the budget but didn’t list them. they also approved the “Position Schedule” and “Step and Grade Schedule” that lays out the various salaries for county workers. the now-approved county budget is posted on the Kerr County website for citizen access. HCyeC Several items on monday’s agenda concerned the Hill Country Youth events Center and ongoing construction and planning for that facility. architect Peter Lewis reported on bids from two companies for the Show Barn industrial fan/air circulation system, and recommended acceptance of a bid from Big ass Fans for $56,610. Commissioners voted 4-0 to accept his recommendation for the high velocity, low speed fans to be mounted in the roofline of the new building. roy Walston at the agriLife extension Service had asked commissioners to install a “Solid waste interceptor” at the 4-H Project Center, a barn with pens housing livestock animals owned by 4-H youngsters who cannot house them at their homes. monday commissioners got a report that Walston had visited several times with City of Kerrville Waste management officials and was ready to show commissioners bids, ask for the interceptor equipment to be ordered, and discuss drainage issues with city officials at the meeting. Walston said if the equipment could be ordered now, work could begin on the trenching for the lines that will connect to a holding tank and to the city sewer. then installation will be quicker when the equipment arrives. He said swine would soon be arriving in the Project Barn as young entrants begin working with their livestock projects for next January’s shows. Commissioners approved an order not to exceed $6,000 and asked Walston to report to them at their next regular meeting. Commissioners also, with some jokes, looked at an array of sample masonry blocks in various colors to choose what the lower eight feet of the Show Barn wall will look like. out of about 12 choices, they settled on a tan color to go with the metal sides of the barn and to withstand the dust and dirt at the facility. an item on setting a fee schedule

for renting the new show barn was deferred again to a future meeting, to allow for phone calls to like facilities to see what others are charging. east Kerr wastewater project County officials voted unanimously to authorize $64,000 in county funds for matching an eDaP Grant in the same amount to pay for easements in disadvantaged areas for new wastewater lines in connection with the east Kerr Wastewater Project. County auditor Jeannie Hargis asked them to specify where this money would come from, as she is required to send it to a state escrow account. Commissioners voted to take the $64,000 out of their 2012 Capital improvements bond issue proceeds. grants for rainwater catchment Commissioners got two checks monday to help pay for the rainwater catchment system to be installed at the new Show Barn at the Hill Country Youth events Center. Scott Parker and ray Buck from the Upper Guadalupe river authority presented them with an oversized symbolic check and the real thing for $10,000 to help fund that water-saving system at the new building, saying they want to do everything they can from their budget to help such conservation efforts. and Gordon morgan and Diane mcmahon from the Headwaters Groundwater Conservation District gave them a check for $5,000 for the same project. Historical Commission award members of the Kerr County Historical Commission were presented monday with a “Distinguished Service award” from the state’s texas Historical Commission. Julie Leonard and Francelle Collins accepted the award on behalf of the county Historical Commission’s membership during the meeting, presented by tinley. Leonard said there were 175 submissions to the state office for work done in 2011, and 75 awards were given by the state to county organizations. Joint airport Board Commissioners unanimously voted to appoint William Wood to a vacant seat on the Kerrville-Kerr County Joint airport Board, and to re-appoint tom moser and Corey Walters to the same board. moser’s seat will have to be filled as of Jan. 1, after the November General election makes his election as County Commissioner official, and he moves onto Commissioners’ Court. Care of Flat rock Lake Park Citizen Sherry egloff asked commissioners to reconsider how ongoing maintenance is being handled at Flat rock Lake Park, in regards to erosion, native plants that guard against silt going into the lake, and riverbank protection. She said she drove the park once with maintenance Supervisor tim Bollier who agreed with much of her assessment about how much and how close to the riverbank should be mowed continually and where improvements might be made, but nothing’s been done since. the heavily used section needs to be mowed, she said, while a roadway and hill just east of that is eroding because of off-road vehicles and allowing silt to fall into the river. Wildflowers could stabilize a third section if it wasn’t mowed as often, she said. after discussion about needing a sketch or plan to show her requests, and the need for input from a variety of park users, egloff agreed to meet with Letz in the park to see what she was asking for. 198th da office District attorney-elect Scott monroe asked commissioners to help him find an office that’s county-owned and cheaper than the rented office now in use. they discussed a finishout of extra space at the Sheriff’s office annex, and agreed that architect Peter Lewis could provide drawings at an hourly rate to total not more than $2,500.

Center Point, Medina to battle Friday

tivy kicks off 2012 season play Friday against Del Rio By s TuarT C unyus Sports editor


ome Friday night, the long wait is over. After a major offseason coaching change and back-to-back scrimmages against Boerne and new Braunfels, tivy opens a new era when the Antlers play their first game under new head coach David Jones.

Tivy Football tivy and Class 5A Del Rio kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Antler Stadium in a contest that has no bearing on either teams’ postseason hopes, but will go a long way toward answering questions about the state of both schools’ football programs. Kerrville Jones fans will get their first look at an Antler team since the departure of longtime leader Mark Smith earlier this year. the winningest coach in tivy history, Smith led the Antlers to a 93-34 record over 10 years, a wildly successful run that included two Class 4A state semifinal appearances and 10 straight years of playoff berths. Del Rio is looking to build on recent playoff momentum after reaching the regional semifinals in 2010 and the bi-district round last fall while compiling a 19-6 record See AntLeRS, Page 2B

21-25, 26-24, 25-20. the Lady Antlers opened play last week with a 3-0 loss tuesday to Wimberley at Antler Gym, a score that didn’t reflect the closeness of the match. tivy rallied in the first game from a 24-20 deficit to trail by just a point before Wimberley finally triumphed 25-23, and after dropping Game 2 25-19, stayed even with the Lady texans at 21-all in the final game before Wimberley put the contest away with a 25-22 win. Sophomore Paige Miller paced tivy with five kills, olivia Bates and Bethany Brown added four kills each, Kendall Bosse contributed 13 Miller assists and Merci Perry seven, and Danielle Snow recorded 20 digs to go along

During the controlled portion of the scrimmage, the Pirate defense struggled to contain returning honorable mention All-State quarterback Chance Barlow, who is being highly recruited in both football and baseball. “He is a stud and throws the ball really hard,” Center Point coach Bubba Walters said. “He didn’t hurt us running, but on extending plays. He’s hard to bring down and is always looking to throw. it’s hard to cover receivers to six or seven seconds.” in the live scrimmage, the Pirates’ defense adjusted and held the Cowboy offense in check for the most part, only allowing 140 yards. Center Point’s offense again moved the ball well despite a young and inexperienced offensive line that was at first overwhelmed by a quick and aggressive D’Hanis defense. the Cowboys used a blitzing scheme to get players in the backfield and disrupt Center Point’s timing. “our passing was o.K. this time,” Walters said. “We weren’t as crisp, but they brought the house, bringing six or seven guys nearly every play. We struggled a little in the first 15 plays, but in the live scrimmage we didn’t give up a sack.” in their first possession of the live scrimmage, the Pirates mounted a nine-minute drive that was capped by a Roberto Zendejo 8-yard scamper on a third-and-one play.

win in boys singles. “on paper the Cooper and Westlake loses look bad, but in reality we played really well against two really good 5A teams that are both going to be ranked in the top 25 this fall,” tivy coach Kyle Sargent said. “the kids performed really well; we just couldn’t match up with their experience. Both teams are loaded with seniors and we have a lot of new faces on our team that are still trying to get their feet wet at this level of play. “the Judson and Calallan matches were different,’ Sargent said. “We lost both, but they were really close matches that were hard fought, and if one or two things had gone differently we could have had a chance to get the wins.”

Hernandez scored on runs of 12 and 7 yards, Brian Goodloe added a 6-yard tD run, and Redmond Carson bulled over from a yard out to spark tivy’s offensive outburst. the Antlers were even more overwhelming on defense. Roy Fuentes scooped up a new Braunfels fumble and returned it for a touchdown, Reid Dunagan scored on a 35-yard interception return, Michael Luebano recovered two fumbles, and Michael Ramirez added yet another fumble recovery.

over the combined two seasons. the Rams come into Antler Stadium riding the arm of senior quarterback Jorge Fernandez, who passed for 1,903 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2011, and the footwork of senior running back Gudeio Garza, who amassed 1,521 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns last fall. “they’ve been in the playoffs the last two or three years, and they’ve got a real good quarterback,” Jones said. “they had a real good summer in 7-on-7 play, so it’ll be a good test for us to get started. But we are excited to play our first game here, that’s for sure.” tivy and the Rams haven’t met since 1999, but do have a long history prior to that. Del Rio leads the all-time series 12-8, a stat that the Antlers will be aiming at improving Friday. tivy heads into Friday’s contest after capping scrimmage play last week against Class 5A new Braunfels at Antler Stadium. the Antlers outscored the unicorns in the early portion of the scrimmage, courtesy of a 6-yard touchdown run by Parks Mcneil, a 25-yard scoring toss from Mcneil to tyler Ahrens, and touchdown passes of 2 and 8 yards from Reed Jones to Jevon Gardner and Garrett Stoepel. the Antlers then eked out a 14-13 edge in the two-quarter “game” section of the evening after rallying twice from one-touchdown deficits. new Braunfels opened game play with a 70-yard drive capped by Weston King’s 16-yard run on a quarterback keeper, but tivy answered quickly. Mcneil completed three passes to Ahrens for 36 yards and handed off three times to Will Stuckey for another 11 before scoring on a 23-yard keeper with 7:59 left in the opening quarter.

Tivy’s Will sTuCKey eludes a New Braunfels defender during the Antlers’ scrimmage against the visiting Unicorns Friday at Antler Stadium. Brandon Bielke open for a 45-yard tD connection. that lead proved fleeting. Reed Jones replaced Mcneil at quarterback and engineered a masterful 70-yard drive in the second quarter, hitting Jess Conner four times for 32 yards before eventually scoring on a 2-yard run midway through the quarter. Will Cowden’s PAt kick provided the final margin in the Antlers’ 14-13 favor. “We made some mistakes, but overall the kids played hard and did some good things,” David Jones said. “We’re learning a lot of new stuff, and we’re still not real smooth and real confident in what we’re doing, but we’ve got some kids that will compete and make plays. We have a chance to be pretty good.” Mcneil finished the night with 43 yards passing and another 35 rushing in limited action, and Reed

Jones posted a 14-of-23 night through the air for 140 yards. Conner led tivy’s receivers with five catches for 46 yards, and Ahrens pulled in four passes for 43 yards. ----notes: new Braunfels coaches asked tivy to hold off on hitting their quarterbacks in an effort to avoid injury, then called a quarterback keeper for the unicorns’ first touchdown in the game portion of the scrimmage. needless to say, Antler coaches, players and fans weren’t too happy. tivy assistant coach Chris Russ may have gotten the best block of the night during junior varsity action. Russ got so excited when Reid Dunagan intercepted a new Braunfels pass that he rushed headlong into a mass of pursuing unicorn defenders, blocking several from making a diving stop on

This Week’s Games: oLH @ Boerne Geneva

With new coach Chris Ramirez at the helm, our Lady of the Hills kicks off its 2012 season Friday at home against San Antonio Castle Hills, a team that returns four offensive and four defensive starters from last year’s 6-6 tAPPS Division ii bi-district finalists.

OLH Football the eagles are led by quarterback Jonny Huber and running back Giovanni Hampton, and feature a line that matches fairly close to oLH’s, according to Ramirez. “Size-wise they’re comparable to us,” Ramirez said after watching Castle Hills scrimmage Winston a week ago. “they run a lot of passing plays. their quarterback is definitely one of their key players. He’s shifty and a good decision maker.” Ramirez is hoping for a large home crowd turnout to counter Castle Hills, which will be bringing a big group to the game after attending a school retreat at Mo Ranch thursday and Friday. “they’ve already called ahead and said they’re bringing 125 students, so i know that visitors’ sideline will have a good turnout,” Ramirez said. “i’m hoping we can duplicate that.” the Hawks are coming off a three-way scrimmage last week against Round Rock Christian, defending tAPPS Class 2A Division ii state champion

Custer took an inside handoff 80 yards for the second Pirate score. “Zach hit the seam and he was gone. it was impressive,” Walters said. With a week of practice to prepare, Walters knows exactly what he wants to see this week to prepare for Medina. “each week, we want to get better. We are going to focus on our ability to throw. the perfect scenario for us is a 50-50 split between run and pass. that is our goal – and to control the clock while we are doing it.” Courtesy photo

Sprinter Adrian Jackson is making the move into the backfield this year and provides breakaway speed in the open field. “it’s going to be a good test for us,” Walters said. “i’m excited about Friday. it is an old rivalry that has been played for years and years. it’s a really good rivalry because the kids all know each other.” non-district play.

Tivy Antlers 2012

Tivy begins new era under coach David Jones By S TuarT C unyuS Sports editor


he most successful 10 years in Tivy’s history saw the Antlers post a 93-34 record under former coach Mark Smith, a decade of excellence in which Tivy twice reached the Class 4A state semifinals and recorded six seasons with 10 or more wins. Smith’s run between 2002 and 2011 ended last February when he moved on to lead perennial Class 5A powerhouse Converse Judson, but his departure has done little to damage Tivy’s reputation as a team to be feared. The Antlers enter their 2012 campaign as the San Antonio

Express News’ 10th-ranked area program, and were ranked 11th in the state by Dave Campbell’s prestigious Texas Football magazine in June. Replacing Smith won’t be easy, but one reason pollsters have continued to show Tivy respect is the off-season hiring of new head coach David Jones last March. no stranger to winning himself, Jones compiled a 38-13 record in four years as Class 5A Cypress Woods’ front man, leading the Wildcats to the playoffs in each season, including back-to-back trips to the state quarterfinals in 2009 and 2010. Jones’ 2011 team averaged 448 yards and 41 points per game while running an offensive scheme similar to the

Antlers’ prolific spread attack. Smith didn’t exactly leave the Tivy cupboard bare, either. Jones inherits a team with 22 returning lettermen, including five offensive and four defensive starters back from last fall’s 11-3 Class 4A Region IV finalist unit. Leading the way is the Jones area’s top quarterback in senior Parks Mcneil. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder headlined an offensive

assault that averaged 433 yards and 37 points per game, passing for 2,520 yards and 26 touchdowns and rushing for another 1,662 yards and 22 scores. Mcneil will operate behind an offensive line that features three big All-District honorable mention returners in seniors Madison Wilmot (6-2-250) and Brian McCarty (6-0, mcneil 225) and junior Hunter See AnTLeRS, Page 8S

A force in the middle of Tivy’s line last fall, Hernandez finished the season with 65 total tackles and a fumble recovery en route to honorable mention All-District recognition.

A starter as a sophomore, Miears was a rock at center, using his massive frame to anchor an offensive line that helped the Antlers average 433 yards and 37 points per game.

Another mainstay on Tivy’s offensive front and the largest of the Antlers’ returning starters, Wilmot earned honorable mention All-District notice for his outstanding play.

Joining fellow returners Miears and Wilmot, McCarty rounds out a veteran offensive line that should be one of Tivy’s strong points in 2012 as the Antlers seek another playoff berth.

Miears (6-0, 245), and a top wide receiver in junior Tyler Ahrens. At 6-2 and blessed with leaping ability, Ahrens proved a big target in the passing game last fall, hauling in 30 catches for 579 yards and three touchdowns. He showed additional versatility by rushing for another 252 yards and five scores and completing 10 passes for 180 yards and a TD. Senior Will Stuckey ahrens adds additional firepower to the Antlers’ offense after recording 15 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown in 2011. While Tivy put up big numbers offensively last fall, the Antlers’ struggled at times on defense, surrendering an average Stuckey of almost 23 points per game. Tivy has four defensive starters back to try and improve on that number this time around, including senior lineman Jesse Hernandez (6-1, 200), another hon-

tivy juniOr biLLy fieLd is back this fall after recording 84 tackles and three intereceptions in 2011.

three interceptions and three blocked passes, and Appel logged 60 tackles, an interception and three blocked passes. Other returning defensive players who saw significant playing time in 2011 include linebackers Keith Henry, Westin Brown and Diego Heredia, and defensive backs Aaron Ozuna and J.T. White. Tivy’s special teams should be in good shape with Field back at punter and Brad Mitchell and Will Cowden sharing placekicking duties. Field averaged just under 32 yards per punt in 2011, while Mitchell



connected on 46 extra points and booted seven field goals. Cowden added eight PAT kicks. Tivy’s road to the playoffs will be tougher this year, courtesy of the university Interscholastic League’s biannual realignment of public schools this past spring. The Antlers face perennial powerhouse and longtime nemesis Alamo Heights, an area-round finalist last fall, on Oct. 19 after battling a tough Buda Hays team two weeks earlier. Tivy’s non-district schedule remains as rigorous as ever, with the Antlers facing Cibolo Steele and San Antonio Madison, the area’s no. 1 and no. 2-ranked teams, respectively, on back-to-back Fridays in September.

Mcneil COnTInueD FROM PAGe 16S

Fortunately, outsiders’ perception of Mcneil may finally be changing. Texas Football noted his value to the Antlers in its 2012 high school football preview, writing that “Having Mcneil back is key for Tivy, a team that appears good enough to challenge for a state title.” The San Antonio Express News echoed those sentiments. “With Parks Mcneil returning for his senior season after a big year in 2011, expectations will be as high as ever in the Hill Country,” the Express News noted. For his part, Mcneil doesn’t worry about the accolades. “That’s not really a big deal to me as long as we put the points up,” the often soft-spoken senior said. “I’m pretty sure we went further in the playoffs than any of them did. That’s what’s important to me and our team.” Sounds an awful lot like that quarterback from Green Bay.

Respect Time for some

underrated as a junior, Tivy’s Mcneil lit up area scoreboards By S TuarT C unyuS Sports editor


arks Mcneil’s favorite quarterback should be Aaron Rodgers. The Tivy gunslinger and the Green Bay All-Pro could certainly empathize with each Tivy Profile other’s battle for recognition. It took Rodgers two Super Bowl championships to fully exorcise the memory of predecessor Brett Favre in the icy confines of Packerland. Mcneil has faced a similar situation at Tivy despite putting up both victories and offensive numbers at an equally impressive pace. As a starter in 2011, the 5-foot-10, 165pounder led the Antlers to an undefeated District 28-4A title and a fourgame playoff run, passing for 2,520 yards and 26 touchdowns and rushing for another 1,662 yards and 22 scores. Included in that stretch was a masterful 552 total mcneil yard, six-TD showing (four rushing, two passing) in Tivy’s 50-43 regional semifinal win over Port Lavaca Calhoun, a victory highlighted by Mcneil’s game-winning 24-yard touchdown run with just 31 seconds left to play. not that winning is anything new to Mcneil. As a seventh and eighth grader, he guided Peterson Middle School’s A teams to a 13-1-1 record over two years, then paced Tivy’s freshman team to four wins before an injury shortened his 2009 season. A year later, Mcneil passed and ran for 21 touchdowns and engineered five victories at the junior varsity level before being moved up to varsity with three games left in the season. Mcneil’s ascent to the starting quarter-

back position came the next fall, where the then-junior was saddled with the pressure of replacing graduated AllState and Parade All-American quarterback Johnny Manziel, now a starter at Texas A&M. Despite having to endure comparisons to Manziel throughout the year, Mcneil responded with grace under fire, capping the season with more wins (10), total offensive yards (4,182) and touchdowns (48) than any other quarterback in District 28-4A. Apparently, that wasn’t enough to convince the district’s coaches of Mcneil’s worth. When the postseason AllDistrict team was announced, San Antonio McCollum quarterback Alex Rios (2,412 total yards, 25 touchdowns, eight wins) earned Offensive Most Valuable Player honors, while uvalde’s Cory Raley (2,333 total yards, 24 TDs, four wins) and San Antonio Harlandale’s Jake Cardenas (1,747 yards, 14 TDs, three wins) picked up first- and second-team All-District recognition at quarterback, respectively. Inexplicably, Mcneil was relegated to an honorable mention All-District nod. “That’s why I’ve never really put a lot of stock into All-District teams,” Mcneil’s former Tivy coach Mark Smith said. “The guys that finished in front of him were seniors, and you don’t want to take anything away from them, but at the same time Parks is such a competitor and wants to win so much that you don’t want to take anything away from him either. Did he get the respect he deserved last year? Probably not, but the great thing about Parks is that he doesn’t really care as long as his team is winning.” See McneIL, Page 13S

76 years ago, Tivy battled amarillo in the antlers’ only state championship game appearance

A look back at ... J

ust how dominant were the 1936 Tivy Antlers, the only team in school history to reach the state championship game in football? The numbers speak for themselves. Over 12 games, the Antlers outscored their opponents by a better than 5-to-1 margin, recorded five shutouts and gave up just six points in five other games. Tivy’s one loss, a 19-6 setback to Amarillo in the state title game at Butler Field in Amarillo, came to a Sandie team that wrapped up a third consecutive state championship with the win. In that climactic showdown, Tivy AllState quarterback Roy Holbrook hit teammate and Antler co-captain Alfred Rust with a touchdown pass for the Antlers’ lone score.

With a new coach at the helm, Tivy again aims for playoffs


fter snapping a two-year playoff drought in 2011, Tivy’s Lady Antlers are looking to make another postseason run this fall under the guidance of new coach Lindsey Tivy Volleyball Heatherly. The Lady Antlers, who posted a 23-21 record in 2011 and advanced to Region IV-4A bidistrict play before falling to new Braunfels Canyon, boast a ton of experienced returning talent in seniors Olivia Bates, Cody Turner, Danielle Snow, Caroline Freedle, elisa Montanez and Lauren Avery, and junior Bethany Brown. Bates was a second-team All-District selection for the Lady Antlers in 2011. newcomers Bailey Barziza, Paige

Miller, Kendall Bosse and Merci Perry round out Tivy’s varsity lineup. Heatherly, who came to Tivy after coaching stints in Arlington, Frisco and Ft. Worth, will count on her upperclassmen for leadership. “Our seniors have done a really good job of stepping up and being leaders so far this year,” Heatherly Bates said. “It’s been nice to have a group of girls stepping up and being leaders instead of just one person stepping up and being a leader.”

Go Hawks! “Our Family Serving Your Family.”

Go Antlers!

Kyle Holmes


fter two straight trips to regionals, Tivy’s tennis team knows what it takes to be successful, and the Antlers have a host of returning talent to make a run at a third consecutive regional berth in 2012. Leading the way are seniors Claire Russell and Gretchen Stacy, and junior Sarah Hayes, all of whom recorded wins in regional final competition against Gregory Portland. Tivy should be bolstered in its bid for another regional berth by the play of returning seniors Gabe Schlechte and Carl Barth in boys competition, as well as promising sophomores Cody Highsmith and Scott Schulte.


nother trip to regionals in 2011 has the Tivy girls cross country team looking for a return engagement this fall, and the Lady Antlers certainly have the firepower to do so with returning senior Ashley Abrigo back. Abrigo clocked a regional-qualifying 11:55 at last year’s district meet in Boerne, and Tivy had four other returners — Sarah Muehlstein, Kendall McKenzie, nicole Fowler and Haley Poole — turn in solid district showings. Tivy’s boys team should be strong too with Tommy Anthony, Gage Arbogast and Kirk Hodel back from last fall’s fourth-place district finisher.


fter a strong spring showing that saw him punch a ticket to regionals, two-time All-District Tivy senior Kyle Holmes is hoping to continue his strong play this fall. Holmes leads an Antler team that includes juniors Reed Jones, Adam Cowart and Brice Freedle, and sophomores Sean Stumbo and Colin uecker. Tivy missed qualifying for regionals as a team last fall by just two strokes. Tivy’s girls team also has veteran talent returning in Madeline Roloff, ella Hill, Kaleigh Flowers, Marlena Lopez, Katie McCarty, Addie Clark and Faith Mayo. newcomers include Hannah Johnson and Lindsey Ivey.

Our Lady of the Hills new coach, new faces at OLH as Hawks reload for 2012 By S TuarT C unyuS Sports editor


raduation pretty much cleaned the board at Our Lady of the Hills following the Hawks’ run to a third consecutive TAPPS Class 2A sixman state semifinal berth last fall. OLH lost five starters from that 10-3 unit, including the school’s all-time leading offensive yardage producer in Marshall Walker. In addition, longtime Hawk coaches Jeremy Thornton and Matt Casey left in the spring to pursue other opportunities. OLH took a big step forward over the summer in its rebuilding process with the hiring of new head coach Chris Ramirez. The former quarterback from Refugio inherits a team that has just one starter back from last fall’s juggernaut, senior eli Reyna. Reyna will be relied on to provide both leadership and offensive firepower after rushing for 412 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011 and hauling in 13 passes for another 289 yards and two scores. Ramirez plans to combine Reyna’s breakaway speed with the talents of newcomers Zach ramirez Barrientos and Wyatt Williams to comprise an interchangeable three-way threat at running back and quarterback. Barrientos, a junior, provides exceptional arm strength to go along with a tough running game, and Williams demonstrated accuracy throwing the ball last fall on the Hawks’ junior varsity team. Senior Love Frazer saw significant playing time last year and will be counted on to bring heat on the defensive reyna rush. Projected starters in this year’s OLH lineup include offensive lineman Rollins Olmsted, wide receivers Dylan Huser and Zach Feller, and sophomore Zachary Ramsey. “I look for Ramsey to make an immediate impact on both sides of the ball,” Ramirez said, “and Olmsted will anchor the line of scrimmage offensively. Huser and Feller add experience, leadership and versatility.” Other newcomers to the Hawks’ Frazar varsity roster include Luke Martinez, Matt Williams, nicolas neave, Gabriel Gutierrez, Ross Potter, Andrew Chapman, Corwin Knight, Tyler Thomas, Jordan Sirianni, Brandon Havis, Scott Short and Rance Frazier. As always, OLH’s district offers up tough competition in 2011 state semifinalist Bulverde Bracken and a rising Boerne Geneva team.

OLh’s eLi reyna, the lone returning starter on the Hawks’ 2012 roster, will be counted on for both leadership and offensive production after amassing 701 yards of total offense and nine touchdowns last fall. Photo by Stuart Cunyus

solid season in 2010 had many fans expecting Schreiner to compete for an American Southwest Conference postseason berth in 2011, but the Mountaineers struggled last fall, capping their year at 4-13 overall and going 4-9 in ASC action in coach Paul Hayes’ 10th season at the helm. Schreiner will try and improve on those numbers this year with a lineup that includes returning All-ASC honorable mention senior Kelan Robinson, as well as returning veterans Jorge Ramos, Ivan Benitez, Gio Benitez, Tim Martinez, Trevor Brown, Cody Moles, nathaniel Olmos and David Machado. The Mountaineers no. 1 objective this fall is to score more goals. Six of Schreiner’s losses in 2011 came by a single goal.

2011 campaign decimated by injuries saw Schreiner struggle to a disappointing 3-15 overall finish and a 2-11 mark in American Southwest Conference play, but the Lady Mountaineers are hoping to turn their fortunes around this fall. Senior defender Desiree Frausto, an All-ASC honorable mention selection in 2011, is back to help bolster the Mountaineers’ defense, which gave up just over three goals per game on average last fall. Senior Amanda Moon, a four-year starter, will headline the Mountaineers’ offensive attack, and fellow seniors Lacey Warner and Veronica Kloss should add additional firepower. Returning junior keeper Lizeth De La Torre recorded 88 saves in goal in 2011.
