TxDOT Road Work Continues At Steady Pace
by Julie Becker
Last week the road crew of Allen Keller moved to Hwy 83 to begin pouring concrete for the new roadway. There is now two way traffic on Ranch Road 337 and it’s really big! As you can see in the picture to the right the new two lane, 8ft shoulder, curb, gutters and sidewalks will make a drastic change in the view. The construction on 83 is difficult for our small community, closed roads, steep dropoffs, dirt and dust have at time brought our community to a standstill. Take heart, Allen Keller Project Manager, Tony Magnus has stated that if all holds true, and there are no problems with rain, equipment and other Acts of God, this job will be completed by the end of year! Considering the time lines of other projects we have in our community, this is great news! So be patient, find alternate routes and remember when it is completed it will be awesome.

The map was located in the belongings of Lurlene Boren. Mrs. Boren was a teacher at Leakey ISD for many years. Mrs. Boren’s granddaughter Jan Hallum and her husband Jack had the map framed and presented it to the County. Also present was Mrs. Boren’s grandson Damon White. The gift was accepted by the Commissioners and will hang in the Real County Courtroom. In other business Commissioner’s voted to hire Jason Fleming as the new Extension Agent for Real County.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has established rules for regulating the location, construction and use of on-site sewage facilities (OSSF’s/ septic tanks). Chapter 366 of the Texas Health and Safety Code authorizes a local government to regulate the use of septic tanks in its jurisdiction. TCEQ has designated Real County as its authorized agent to regulate septic tanks in Real County. Nueces River Authority (NRA) is constructing a wastewater collection and treatment system to serve the City of Leakey and others in Real County. NRA has received funds from Texas Water Development Board’s (TWDB’s) Economically Distressed Areas Program (EDAP) account to apply to this construction. The Texas Health and Safety Code requires a local government that applies to TWDB for financial assistance from the EDAP account to receive from TCEQ, and maintain, a designation as TCEQ’s authorized agent to regulate OSSF’s. Solely, to comply with that requirement, NRA is applying to TCEQ for an authorized agent designation. It has prepared a proposed Order establishing its jurisdiction for OSSF regulation within a four mile radius of the Real County Courthouse, which covers the area of NRA’s wastewater project. For all practical purposes, NRA’s proposed Order is identical to Real County’s existing Order for septic tank regulation. To avoid confusion, duplication of effort, and added expense that could result from this overlapping of jurisdiction, it is NRA’s intent to enter into an Interlocal Agreement with Real County wherein Real County will assume all responsibilities incurred by NRA with TCEQ’s authorized agent designation and under NRA’s proposed Order. These responsibilities will not change or add to Real County’s current responsibilities for regulating septic tanks. The effect of all of this on Real County citizens will be that nothing will change with respect to septic tank regulation in Real County. A public meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on November 1, 2016 at 121 Oak Hill Drive, Leakey, Texas to receive public comments. No other subject will be discussed at that meeting.

LEAKEY EAGLES ROLLIN’ ON!! Leakey Eagles 30 – Angoras 36 by Pris Montgomery
The Leakey Eagles took a hard fall last Friday night losing to the Rocksprings Angoras - 30 to 36. Head Coach Jesse Rodriquez noted the Eagles fought hard on both sides of the ball all night long. Coach Rod is very proud of the Eagle team and how each player gives his best at each game. Coaching these boys gives us all pride. In the 1st quarter the Eagles defensive unit was on the field most of the quarter as the Eagle offense could not find consistent momentum to moving the ball. Eagles suffered loss on plays, over-throws, and penalties making it more difficult to move the ball to score. On defense needed tackles were made by Darren Wright, Damian Gonzalez, Marco Carrizales, and James Diaz. The Eagles were lucky the Rocksprings Angoras were not moving the ball. As the 1st quarter progressed the Eagles needed to adjust their game plan to win. In the 2nd quarter the Eagles offense found themselves unable to move the ball down the field to score successfully. The Eagles reined-in the quarter with a good play by Quinten Pigg. Damian Gonzalez had a good punt return. Michael Pannell had a good run. The Eagles offense had a fumble recovered by the Angoras. With 9:55 in the 2nd quarter the Angoras went in to score for the first touchdown of the night. Eagles - 0 Angoras - 7. The Eagles came out the 2nd half with a huge spark of “MO-JO”. With a re-figured offensive line, and plays, the Eagle offense came alive to put scores on the Eagle score board. Jacob Gray and Michael Pannell helped to move the ball down field. Anthony Chavez is in at QB and runs the ball in for the Eagle first touchdown of the night. Eagle 06 - Angoras 07. Eagle Coach Montgomery notes that Anthony Chavez, Michael Pannell, and Damian Gonzalez are extremely strong rushing backs/full backs. Coach Montgomery notes that Anthony Chavez duels as an Eagle QB. With 2:04 left in the 3rd quarter, QB Anthony Chavez throws
a pass to receiver Coleman Kerr for a touchdown. Eagles 12 Angoras 7. The Angoras fumble a kick-off return which the Eagles recover. The Eagles have the ball. QB Anthony Chavez passes to Tim Wright for a touchdown. Many players on the Eagle team play both ways. Eagles 18 - Angoras 7. Going into the 4th quarter the Eagles are feeling more confident. Trace Lackey and Ryan Lopez make strong plays. Abrahm Ferguson and Ryan Lopez make strong tackles. By 11:10 into the 4th quarter the Angoras score again making 2 extra points. The Eagles made “no-extra points” all night long. Eagles 18 – Angoras – 15. A kick-off return by the Angoras is fumbled and recovered by Eagle Rylan Springer on the 46 yard line. Damian Gonzalez strongly moves the ball up the Angoras defensive line for yardage. QB Coleman Kerr completes a pass to Anthony Chavez for a Eagle touchdown. Eagles 24 – Angoras 15. The Eagles kick-off a on-side kick to the Angoras and they receive the ball on the 50 yard line. The Eagle defense was unable to hold the Angoras offense, the Angoras scored. Eagles 24 – Angoras 22. Now you would think the game could not get any more exciting! With 7:00 left in the game, Eagles score. Eagles 30 – Angoras 22. The Angoras receive kick-off. Eagle Michael Pannell makes a interception. Within a few plays the Eagles have fumbled the ball to Angoras. A lot of hard hitting by both teams is noted by Eagle Head Coach Rodriquez. The Angoras are able to score. Eagles 30 – Angoras 28. With 1:57 to play the Angoras score again on the Eagle defense. Eagles 30 – Angoras 36. Eagle Coaches- Springer and Lieker noted that this was a hard fought football game defensively and offensively. The Eagles wanted this game real bad. Coaches noted, the Eagles will make a come back by winning against Center Point next Friday. The Leakey Eagles Football Team will host the Center Point-Pirates, October 21, 2016 at Leakey Stadium at 7:30p.m.--.

For over forty years the Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) has served the businesses and people of the Frio Canyon. As with many of the organizations in the canyon, only a “few” dedicated members commit to seeing that ‘All’ are represented and served. Often the tireless efforts of the “few” just don’t seem to be enough, and the organizations die out. What a pity that would be for the Chamber, the businesses and people of the of the Frio Canyon. We currently have 147 individual memberships and an average of 7 members attend-
ing our general meetings. Just think, seven dedicated members serving a community with little to no input from the communities business owners or people. This is really a small percentage! We invite You to Make A Difference. No one, or group, can represent your best interest better than YOU. Do you want to have your best interest represented in the Frio Canyon - support the Chamber; Want to voice your opinions and share your ideas - come to the meetings. If you want your business to be included, but can’t find time
to attend the meeting - send a representative to the meetings. Want to MAKE A DIFFERENCE - Serve on the chamber Board. The Chamber is now seeking nominations to fill four (4) positions on the board. We encourage you to accept one of these leadership roles. The Chamber needs your time, your unique talent. Accept a position on the Board, make your voice heard and help the chamber make the Frio Canyon the place we ALL want it to be.
Nueces Canyon FFA Travels to Area
By FFA Advisor Richard Kramer
The Nueces Canyon FFA Land, and Home-site evaluation teams traveled to area this Wednesday to compete for a shot at making it to state. There were over forty teams from all across area 7 competing in the two judging contests. In order to compete at the area contest you must place at least second in district. We edged out schools like Uvalde, Devine and Natalia for the right to go to area. The land team went head to head with schools like Judson, Fredericksburg and Hondo and our team of freshman and one lone sophomore held their own. Out of the 42 teams that competed we placed ninth one spot out of the banners. Still Nueces Canyon was by far the smallest school competing that day and we edged out many much larger schools. That just shows you that we do belong at these contests. The team consists of Leslie Taylor, Grace Luce, Cody Johnson, Caiden Childs, and our Captain Eli Ludlow. Every one of these guys will be back next year and I have a feeling we will be claiming the area Title for several years to come. L to R:Back Daymon Joy, Mason Johnson Front Row: Tyler Kilroy, Cody Next the expectations were through the roof for this Johnson, Caiden Childs, Eli Ludlow, Bethany Fisher, Joana Valenzuela, Leslie group of seniors who made up the Home-site evaluaTaylor, Grace Luce tion team. They had placed eleventh at state last year and we all thought our ticket was punched to go back to very grateful and honored that I got the chance to travel with these state. This just was not in the cards for us. We missed our chance really great kids to contests they have been a joy and I feel very to go to state by mere two points. Still they represented our school privileged to have had the chance to teach and coach them. The as well as I could have hoped. Tyler Kilroy placed in the top ten home-site team consists of Joanna Valenzuela, Bethany Fisher, individually ranking seventh out of over a hundred or more kids. Tyler Kilroy, Mason Johnson, and Daymon Joy. All the guys went in and performed very well it was just not our Now we are on to our leadership events in November where I day. The team placed seventh over-all with a separation from first expect to bring home the sweepstakes and advance several teams to eighth of just 31 points it is a hard pill to swallow. I am still to area and state.
Is Your Child Reading Ready? We have successfully completed the first 6 weeks of school and are getting settled into our daily routines of getting our children up and off to school, getting homework done in the midst of cooking dinner and baths, and keeping up with all of their extracurricular activities. Among these things, we as parents need to remember how important it is to slow down for a few moments and just be with our children. As your child is preparing to enter Kindergarten, or if they have just started, one of the important things we need to make sure that you are doing is reading WITH your child. Here are a few tips from Lawren Allphin at education.com: While every teacher and school has their own set of “prerequisites,” there’s a set of general reading expectations that most teachers share, when it comes to kids entering kindergarten. Before entering kindergarten, a student well prepared for reading should be able to: 1.Read his/her name 2.Recite the alphabet 3.Recognize some or all of the letters in the alphabet
4.Correspond some or all letters with their correct sound 5.Make rhymes 6.Hold a book right side up with the spine on the left, front cover showing 7.Recognize that the progression of text is left to right, top to bottom
Jana Valenzuela, NC Elementary Librarian
8.Echo simple text that is read to them 9.Recognize that text holds meaning 10.Re-tell a favorite story If your child is not quite steady in all of these areas, don’t panic! Every child enters kindergarten at a different level and teachers expect a huge variation in the skills each student brings. They’re trained to optimize success for each individual, no matter what. According to Lesley M. Morrow, Ph.D. , Distinguished Professor of Literacy at Rutgers University in New Jersey, one of the main reasons kindergarten reading is taught in small groups, is so teachers can easily cater to different levels of reading readiness. More advanced readers can be taught in a way that limits boredom, and more beginning readers at a pace that minimizes frustration. Remember that the first teacher your child has is you! Reading regularly with your child will ensure their growth as a reader. It will build their confidence as a learner and help them be academically successful in every subject. Happy reading!

Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush appointed Becky Bridges Dinnin as Director of the Alamo in February 2015. She is a 6th generation Texan, native of West Texas, and descendant of Sarah Dodson who sewed one of the Historic Texas Flags. She continues as liaison to the Commissioner and GLO for the Alamo Endowment. Prior to her position at the Alamo, she served for seven years with the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. She has a MBA from SMU and has a degree in journalism from Baylor. She gave a report on the Alamo. She told us of the progress of the archeological digs being
done to map the boundaries of the walls of the Alamo. She talked of new landscaping being done and about one corner of the building shifting and that they are looking into what to do to repair this. We were then introduced to Ian Oldaker, Chief Operations Officer for the Alamo Complex Management. Mr. Oldaker oversees the daily visitor experience and staff operations at the Alamo Complex. Prior to his arrival in San Antonio, Ian worked in New York City. No one brought out a rope. After all, not everyone can be born in Texas! Hold your judgement until you hear what this man has been doing. Ian worked as Vice President of Operations and Planning for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. In his 10 years with the organization, he played an integral role in the opening of both the 9/11 Memorial in 2011 and the 9/11 Memorial Museum in 2014. Ian helped design and build the multi-divisional Operations Department, and ran the Visitor Services Division. He received his Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science from Loyola University in Maryland, his Master of Science in
continued from front page
Global Affairs from New York University and his Master of Fine Arts from Brooklyn College – CUNY. As for me, I feel the Alamo is in good hands with this man. After a delicious lunch, we had a speaker, Judy Turner. She spoke on the “The Immortal 32 Lost Records”. Ms. Turner is a Genealogist from Placedo, Texas. She works with Twisted Branches Tangled Roots Family Research Services. She is one of those wonderful people that have enabled us to have digitized records at our finger tips by using our computers. Our last speaker was Dr. Larry P. Knight. He gave a very informative and entertaining talk titled “Mayor Devine Kills Mayor McDonald or Politics in San Antonio in the 1850’s.” It was a very enjoyable workshop. The 2017 District VII Meeting will be held in Goliad on 30 of September. It will be hosted by Presidio La Bahia Chapter.

Busy End of Season at the Bat Cave The Devil’s Sinkhole State Natural Area is having its biggest bat shows of the season. On Saturday, October 1, visitors saw three albino bats in the massive swarm, a clear marker for major bat numbers. The population of the big cave is estimated at 3.8 million, the fourth-biggest bat roost in Texas. The volunteers of the Devil’s Sinkhole Society provide all the different tours at the Devil’s Sinkhole State Natural Area at this time of year: the famous evening bat tour, the morning bat return tour, day tours, nature walks, and birding tours. All tours to the National Natural Landmark begin at the Rocksprings Visitors Center on the town square. The volunteers are planning a set of special events around the October 31 close of bat tour season. On the evening of October 29, the Devil’s Sinkhole will host a stargazing event combined with the evening bat tour. The Devil’s Sinkhole State Natural Area rates a 2 on the Bortle Scale, a nearly perfect darkness level for stargazing. The Rocksprings Visitors Center will host a pumpkin painting contest

Principal Peabody told me of some items that the community could possibly donate to help the school children as a S T E A M project is number one. The S T E A M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) students are making a igloo out of gallon milk jugs. If you use milk in large amounts, please rinse out the empty gallon milk jugs and bring them to the office at the Elementary School. They will pass them on to the children. To make money for the student council is project number two. The Box-Tops-For Education can be redeemed for money by the school. They are found on certain Betty Crocker cake mixes, Kleenex brand tissues, and other items which are usually demonstrated on the outside of the packaging. Cut them out and take them to the Elementary school office so that the Student Council can redeem them.
Ed Brune’s Lady Hawks
Thursday’s volleyball home game between the Varsity Lady Hawks and Vanguard was a well matched game. The first round ended in favor of the Hawks 25 to 13: second game was 25 to 22: third game was 12 to 25: and the final game was so close at 26 for the Lady Hawks and 24 to Vanguard. That one was exciting up to the final moments of the game. Yesterday they played Covenant, again at Ed Brune, but past my deadline for a report. The JV and Varsity teams will be at the Regionals contest which will be held at the Alamo City All Stars Sportsplex, 11471 East Loop 1604 North, in Universal City at 7 p.m. tomorrow evening. Their coach is Greg Neal.

Have a safe trip.

City of Sabinal
It’s not your local haunted house, instead the City of Sabinal has contracted to have the water tower and holding tank cleaned up in a big way! The giant tent is in place to first sandblast the tower and tank and then give both a new paint job. It is long overdue and will be safer water for our citizens. They will be working all this week to try and complete the job.

THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN Halloween —is a combination of many things from different cultures, of which the Irish-Celtic is a huge part. The Celts were a people who lived in ancient Ireland and Scotland , and were close to the Earth and nature in their festivals. They had four main yearly celebrations with the Samhain, for the winter pronounced “read ‘sah-win’”, is where all things Halloween came to life. The Samhain is a harvest festival, and it represents the end of the reaping for the year and preparation for the darker months when winter sets in. It’s celebrated from the sunset on October 31 to the evening of November 1. Samhain is the evening before the Christian holiday of All Hallows’ Day, which makes it the ‘All Hallows’ Eve’. Many people still believe Halloween to be a pagan festival, but the truth is that in 6AD Pope Boniface IV de-paganized the holiday by unifying it with All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, thus creating the Christian festival of Hallowmas. Halloween is believed to be a time when the veil between the Otherworld and ours is lifted, allowing the spirits free access to roam around their loved ones. And this week we have a few Haunting Stories to get you in the mood for this holiday, the first is the Legend of Bragg Road (Saratoga Light) A sandy eight-mile dirt road that runs between Highways FM 787 and FM 1293 near the town of Saratoga . Located in the heart of the Big Thicket, one could definitely lose oneself in the pitch blackness of the forest. Except for the single light that mysteriously shines on occasion. In 1902 the Santa Fe railroad cut a line through the dense thicket between Saratoga and Bragg. These tracks were needed for hauling oil from the Saratoga oilfields, along with logs and cattle. Perhaps inevitably, the wilderness won and the city of Bragg was all but forgotten. In
PANNELL REAL ESTATE
1934, the tracks were removed leaving behind the sandy road, used mostly by hunters who kept the thicket from reclaiming it. So what is behind this strange light that has been seen for nearly 80-plus years? The foremost story is that a railroad man was decapitated in a train wreck, so now he holds a lantern high while he looks for his head. Whatever the source, there is a light on that darkened stretch. Skeptics will nay say and give almost any excuse but once you have seen the light
that resembles an oncoming train if you were standing on the tracks... you just know! Try as you might you will never get close to it. The light will flicker and then disappear. Our own Linda Kirkpatrick tells the story of the White Lady of Rio Frio where jealousy caused a broken life and lost love. “As you walk along the banks of the Frio River , near the community of Rio Frio, Texas, you may see a wisp of fog, translucent fog, fog that moves with the appearance of a woman dressed in white. Could there really be a ghost that haunts the banks of the Frio River , many say that there is but we all know that a ghost is not real…or do we?” The love triangle of Gregorio, Maria and Anselmo is true. It is true that some children ask their mothers about the woman that was sitting on their bed during the night. But is this Spirit of the Frio really the apparition of Maria Juarez or just a wisp of fog that cloaks the Frio River ? And why does the fog some-
times resemble the graceful movements of a woman all in white? Then there’s the Alamo ... For decades, people from all walks of life have told chilling tales of ghostly experiences at the Alamo . Strange smoky spirits that wander its grounds, screams heard from inside its walls, sounds of explosions, even faint trumpet notes of “El Deguello,” the ancient Spanish call of “no quarter” that Santa Anna ordered played during the final assault on the fort. It is important to remember that the Alamo is essentially a cemetery, a place where 182 Texans defenders died, and 1,600 Mexican soldiers were either killed or wounded on March 6th, 1836 in one of the bloodiest battles in American and Texas history. There have also been repeated reports of a man and a small child, seen on the roof of the Alamo church, in the early morning hours, just at sunrise. In the confusion of the final assault on the Alamo , Colonel Juan Andrade and several other Mexican officers stated that they were “horrified” when they saw a “tall, thin man with a small child in his arms, leap to the ground from the parapet at the rear of the Alamo church. One of the saddest stories of Alamo ghosts is that of a little boy who has been seen for many years wandering the grounds around the old mission. The window where the child is seen has no ledge and is far too high for him to climb onto. According to legend, the young boy is one of the children evacuated from the mission before its fall in 1836, and returns each February to search for his father, who was lost in the battle. Texas is a big place and who knows all of her secrets? We hope you have a safe and Happy Halloween! Watch next week for hints for the best Halloween Parties!
Celebrate 100 years of majesty with a visit to a national park Insider tips for a weekend at a national park site (BPT) - It has been 100 years since an important American institution was born. On August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson and was established as a new federal bureau to oversee the country’s national parks and monuments. Since then, the national park system has grown to encompass more than 400 areas covering more than 84 million acres in every state. With that act, grand sweeps of mountains, canyons, forests, islands and seashores were preserved and made accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Whether you are looking for back-country skiing down a mountain or just a scenic afternoon drive, our national park system has plenty of resources and infrastructure to make a visit enjoyable and memorable to just about anyone. It was John Muir, a naturalist and early parks advocate who said it best: “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” No matter where you live, there’s a good chance one of these mesmerizing landscapes or historical monuments is just a quick road trip away. However, while millions will visit these majestic spots each year, few realize a major challenge faces national parks across the country - waste. The National Park Service manages more than 100 million pounds of waste nationally, much of which is generated by serving more than 300 million park visitors per year - that’s enough to fill the Statue of Liberty more than 1,800 times. While waste is a major issue in the parks, visitors can make a difference. Subaru of America, experts in zero-landfill sustainability, is sharing its knowledge of these practices with the National Parks to help keep the parks beautiful for the next century. As part of that effort, the automaker, alongside National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), has developed a set of tips that visitors can adopt to help reduce some of the biggest contributors to landfills from national parks, including paper, plastics and glass:
Opt for online: While paper maps can be a park staple, there are smartphone apps that provide the same information and more. Even without cell service, some national park apps will give helpful information about where you can spot wildlife, catch a beautiful sunset, or even find a refillable water station. Mug for the parks: Bring a reusable coffee mug from home or buy one from the souvenir shop to help reduce the 58 billion paper cups that are sent to America’s landfills every year. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle): Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. Keep a refillable water bottle on hand or buy one at gift shop, while taking advantage of convenient refilling stations around the park. Ditch the Plastic Bag: Help reduce waste by not using a plastic bag for your souvenirs or groceries that you bring into the parks. Instead, bring your own reusable bag or tote for your items to help eliminate plastic bag waste. Take Out What You Bring in: Think about what you bring in. Check to see if it can be recycled or composted in the park you are visiting. If it cannot, try to take it home. It is often far easier to recycle near your home than in rural park areas. If you are interested in learning more about Subaru’s efforts or what you can do to help make a positive impact for generations to come, visit subaru.com/environment.
Between 15 to 20 percent of pre-schoolage kids have a vision problem such as nearsightedness, lazy eye (2 to 5 percent), and 3 to 4 percent have a condition that causes the eyes to turn in or out, according to the Vision Council. However, two out of three kids start school without having had a comprehensive eye exam. Undiagnosed vision problems can also lead to behavioral problems in school and difficulty with class work. Some kids may even have their vision issues misdiagnosed as attention deficit disorders, according to the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. Some signs of vision issues - like a short attention span for close work or difficulty reading mirror ADD symptoms. The vision care professionals at LensCrafters recommend parents be alert for common signs of vision problems in

It’s kids’ eye exam season: Tips for children’s vision health By now, kids have settled into their school day routine, teachers know each student’s abilities and potential, and you’re feeling like you have a moment to catch a breath before the holidays arrive. Then, an envelope comes home from school with a troubling surprise: your child is having difficulty seeing the white board in class. The school recommends a full eye exam. “It’s not uncommon for parents to be unaware their child is having vision issues, and children themselves may not realize it either,” says Dr. Mark Jacquot, clinical director for LensCrafters Vision Care. “Kids use their eyes constantly in the classroom and on the playground. Problems often come to light during the first months of the school year, when children either have a vision screening in school or their teacher notices them struggling academically.”

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month Did you know that the United States of America has an official proclamation, signed by President Ronald Regan in 1988, that declares October to be “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month”? Do you wonder why we need a month dedicated to this type of loss while other types of loss are not set apart for specific recognition by national observance? I was reading a post on social media this weekend, written by a father who, six years ago, lost his infant child. This father wrote of his arrival at the ballpark to watch one of his other children’s soccer games. As he parked his car, he suddenly found himself trapped in his vehicle. He was imprisoned in a world of tearful grief; his soul engulfed with the excruciating pain of his loss. He wrote that other parents supporting the team did not know of the invisible pain surrounding his life. His agony was very profound. The loss of a child is the most significant loss known to mankind. Miscarriage, in particular, is tragically devastating due to the involvement of guilt, uncertainty, and the lack of recognition by society. “If I had a magic wand, I would erase miscarriage from the human experience. Unlike any other death, miscarriage is the loss of life within a living being’s body. It is the utter violation of self-trust, self-confidence, and self-value. Recovery from a miscarriage is not limited to a normal or even a complicated grief experience. It may encompass recovery from physical ailments brought on through pregnancy and

the organs involved. Miscarriage may create an extremely complicated and often dangerous situation for the mother as well. Indeed, one’s baby may not be the only life at risk.” (Mourning Light II, Tracy Reneé Lee, 2016) The dad’s post this weekend was powerful. His statement of invisible pain brings to light the complexities parents face upon the death of a child. The intensity of one’s grief is predicated upon the level of love and involvement invested upon the decedent. There is no greater investment of love than that bestowed upon one’s child. It is inherent upon the divine gift of procreation. Pain is usually visible by the expression or manner of the sufferer. Pain causes us to cry, wince, limp and complain. On the other hand, survivors often choose to mask their pain. They may try to bury it as they do their loved one’s body. Due to the small reach of an infant’s social circle, his or her death and even his or her existence are often unknown to the parent’s casual friends, acquaintances, co-workers, and colleagues. Things that do not affect our lives are insignificant to us. Unfortunately, an infant falls within this category. The question we need to answer is, “How do we help?” Acknowledge the Loss The first and most helpful thing we can do for a parent who has lost a child is to acknowledge the loss. Simply say: “I’ve heard, and I’m sorry.” These simple words release the parent

factors such as obesity and hepatitis have also increased.” Know the risk factors Education, increased awareness and early detection have helped drive decreases in some of the most common forms of cancer, including breast, colorectal and prostate cancers. Among other advocacy and research organizations, ALF and Bayer hope to achieve the same success with efforts to boost awareness of liver cancer. “It’s important for people to learn about liver cancer risks, the value of early detection and liver cancer treatment options,” Nealon says. “Our Are You At Risk? campaign aims to provide actionable information in the fight against liver cancer.” Liver cancer can be difficult to detect in its earliest, most treatable stages, so it’s important to be aware of liver cancer risk factors and what you can do to reduce your risks. It may be possible to reduce liver cancer risks by limiting alcohol consumption, eating a healthy diet, controlling weight and protecting against Hepatitis B and C. These are the most common risk factors thought to contribute to liver cancer, along with family history. Other risk factors include: * Exposure to arsenic in drinking water - Naturally occurring arsenic can contaminate drinking water and affect the liver. * Being of a certain ethnicity - Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have the highest liver

from having to articulate their loss when they may not even be able to utter the simple salutation, hello. Demonstrate Compassionate Support If words are too difficult to express, a simple squeeze of the hand or light touch to the arm expresses your support and sorrow without painful articulation. Silence is Golden Allow the survivor to share his or her experience when ready. One of the greatest gifts you can offer is to listen. Do Not Judge or Speculate Parents often self-blame for the loss of an infant. Do not support or contribute to self-blaming as it leads to self-loathing. A parent suffering from self-loathing needs professional intervention. They are in grave danger of self-harming. Why is the loss of a child like no other? The loss of one’s child is the loss of one’s self. One’s child is our only creation that encompasses both physical and spiritual entities. The creation of physical bodies to house God’s spirit children is a Holy privilege that transcends the comprehension of many mortal minds. In order to understand the anguish of this loss, we must understand our relationship and obligations to our Creator: God. His desire for us to not only fulfill our purpose on earth but to extend that gift to those who have yet lived is profoundly celestial. Our duty to protect the avenues of health and opportunity for our children is formulated and provided within the profound

cancer rates in the U.S. * Steroid use - Anabolic steroids may increase cancer risks. * Travel - People may be exposed to Hepatitis B while traveling in countries where the disease is common. Know the symptoms Only a doctor can diagnose liver cancer, but it’s important to be aware of possible symptoms. Liver cancer signs often don’t appear until later stages, but talking to a doctor at the first sign of a problem could aid in earlier detection. Common liver cancer symptoms include: * Fatigue * Loss of appetite and feeling full too quickly after eating very little * Nausea and vomiting * Unplanned weight loss * Pain in the abdomen or right shoulder blade * Fluid buildup or swelling in the abdomen * Jaundice “As with many forms of cancer, early detection can make a difference in treating liver cancer,” Nealon says. “Being aware of risk factors and symptoms could help people get diagnosed and begin potentially life-saving treatment much sooner.” To learn more about liver cancer, visit the ALF website (www.liverfoundation.org/ livercancer).

and undeniable love a parent has for his or her children. Failure to successfully complete our partnership with God’s eternal plan through sharing the gift of life is devastating to all who enter into its opportunity. We not only mourn the loss of our creation, the physical presence of our child: we mourn the loss of promise, the soul or spiritual being within our child. Our child’s opportunity for the fulfillment of life, for joy, and purpose has been thwarted. We mourn our dreams and our future goals for happiness. The unintentional failure to successfully provide and sustain the life of our child causes us to writhe in agony. The miscarriage or loss of an infant child is labeled as a non-loss or an insignificant loss. The father’s statement on social media this weekend demonstrates why we need a proclamation from our president to set aside one month per year to recognize the loss and miscarriage of infant children. The loss of a child is like no other. It is the most difficult pain a human being will ever endure. There is no experience in life that can ever relieve or nullify the ferocity of its sorrow. This loss does not just break a parent’s heart; it breaks a parent’s life. If you or someone you love has experienced pregnancy loss or the loss of an infant child, my heart cries for you; my soul prays for you, and my goal is to change the world’s perception of your experience from an insignificant or nonloss to a profoundly significant one.

SALAZAR SPEAKS TO THE DAR UVALDE DE LAS ENCINAS CHAPTER by Karen Collins
National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter, Regent Lesley Jones opened the October meeting by welcoming 27 members and guests at the El Progreso Library at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 15th. After the opening rituals, Billie Toalson read the President General’s Message, which discussed ways of energizing local meetings and chapter activities, and the fact that this year DAR will celebrate it 126th anniversary. Diane Dooley read the National Defense Report, which included information about the Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States. The historic area is now maintained by the National Park Service and is located near St. Augustine, Florida. Mrs. Dooley’s report also noted that this year is the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. Participating in the commemoration gives each of us a chance to help heal the emotional wounds caused by the poor treatment these veterans received on their return from Vietnam. Speaker
for the meeting was Rebekah A. Salazar, Patrol Agent in Charge at the Uvalde Border Patrol Station in the Del Rio Sector. She spoke of her career and how much she enjoyed her work. She started in California, served in Washington, DC, and then in several Texas locations before coming to Uvalde. She said only five percent of the agents at this time are women, and there are great opportunities available to women who are interested in a career with the Border Patrol. Miss Salazar has a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC, a Master of Science in National Resource Strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forced at the National Defense University in Washington, DC, and a Bachelor of Arts with a dual major in Political Science and Psychology from the University of Texas at El Paso. She made a most interesting and educational presentation. Registrar Nancy Baker reported that the chapter has 61 members, and nine prospective members. Regent Jones mentioned that a Bakeless Bake Sale is currently
in progress, and that Box Tops were still being collected for DAR schools. Members are also collecting Three’in’One Body Wash, Shampoo, and Conditioner to be distributed to veterans in December at the VA Hospital in Kerrville. November 11th is Veterans Day, and volunteers to help with the Uvalde program were asked to contact Betty Lawrence or Sharon Hubble. Regent Jones also called attention to the Chapter Achievement Award received by our chapter: First Place at the National Level The next meeting of the chapter will be on Saturday, November 19, 2016, at the El Progreso Library at 11 a.m. Ramon Castro will present the program about the Sahawe Indians. Any woman 18 years of age or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for DAR membership. For more information, contact Regent Lesley Jones at 830-563-2347. The group enjoyed lunch and a time of visitation at a local Italian restaurant following the meeting.

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 SEPTEMBER-In a shock to no one, September was the warmest on record. The planet’s hot streak is crawling to a temporary end, but it’s not over quite yet. September was the hottest on record, according to NASA, coming in at 0.91 degrees Celsius, or 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above average. This marks nearly a year straight of record heat, according to NASA, with 11 of the past 12 months ranking as the warmest on record. September’s record warmth assures that 2016 will be the warmest calendar year on record, taking over the top spot from 2015. We seem to be stuck on record warm: Earth has unprecedented 16-straight warmest months. September only narrowly beat the previous warmest September, which occurred in 2014, making it a statistical tie, according to NASA. ASSANGE- FoxNews- WikiLeaks said Monday that its founder Julian Assange’s Internet link was severed by a “state party” and that “appropriate contingency plans” had been activated. Julian Assange’s internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. The website’s announcement came hours after it published three cryptic tweets. The messages referenced Ecuador, Secretary of State John Kerry and the United Kingdom’s Foreign Commonwealth Office. Each tweet was matched with a string of numbers. HITLER The home where Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was born in 1889 is to be demolished, pending passage of a law to legally ensure its destruction because the owner of the house was refusing to sell – or demolish – it. The same family has owned the property for more than a century, although the Nazi regime bought the house and used it during the reign of the Third Reich. However, the Austrian government wants to block the structure from becoming

a pilgrimage destination for neo-Nazis. The building has been empty since 2011. PARIS (AFP) - The UN cultural agency on Tuesday adopted a controversial Arabsponsored resolution on east Jerusalem which Israel has said ignores Jewish ties to a key holy site. A spokesman for Parisbased UNESCO said the resolution, which has caused Israel to suspend its cooperation with the agency, was adopted without a new vote after being approved at the committee stage last week. The text, which touches on Israel’s management of Palestinian religious sites, has infuriated Israel by referring throughout to the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in east Jerusalem’s Old City -- Islam’s third holiest site -- only by its Muslim names: Al-Aqsa and Al-Haram al-Sharif. The site is also revered by Jews as the Temple Mount which housed the First and Second Temples. Palestine’s deputy ambassador to UNESCO, Mounir Anastas, told reporters the resolution “reminds Israel that they are the occupying power in east Jerusalem and it asks them to stop all their violations,” including archaeological excavations around religious sites. It is the second time this year that UNESCO has been the arena of tensions between Israel and Arab countries. HARVARD MUSEUM (AP) Harvard museum
to dust off curiosities long kept in storage. The Peabody, one of the oldest and largest museums in the world focused on the study of societies and cultures, turns 150 years old this month. As one of the world’s oldest museums dedicated to anthropology turns 150, it’s undergoing some big changes to showcase its significant role in developing the discipline. Leaders of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University hinted this month at changes to come when they trotted out — for one day only — some of its quirkier, rarely seen pieces as part of a birthday bash marking the day in 1866 when philanthropist George Peabody committed $150,000 to help found the museum. Among the curiosities was a grizzly bear claw necklace from Meriwether Lewis and William Clark’s expedition to the Pacific coast. LAPD (AP) Is Building a Tesla Model S Police Car. Luxury car buyers can’t seem to get enough of the Tesla Model S—and neither, apparently, can the Los Angeles Police Department. The LAPD plans to convert a Tesla Model S into a fully-fledged patrol car and set it loose on the mean streets of Los Angeles , as part of a plan that aims to replace traditional cop vehicles with electric police cruisers in the next five years. If this all sounds vaguely familiar, well, it should. Back in May, the LAPD announced that it had borrowed a pair of Model S P85 Ds to see how the EVs could handle the demands of life on the beat. Ultimately, however, the department chose to adopt the BMW i3 as its electric vehicle of choice—for non-emergency duties, not patrol use. HILARY ENDORSEMENT AP-The Arizona Republic Newspaper publicly responded to the deluge of threats it received after supporting Hillary Clinton for president, the first Democratic endorsement in its 125-year history. Mi-Ai Parrish, president of the newspaper, penned a Sunday op-ed explaining what went into the Republic’s decision to break from tradition and how the paper’s journalists go about their jobs. The Republic’s editorial board had argued in many pieces for over a year that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s principles were not actually conservative, and that they were bad for the GOP, Arizona and the United States , she noted. “We chose patriotism over party. We endorsed the Democrat,” she wrote. “And then the reaction started pouring in.
VEGAN...WHAT IS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT? By Elaine Padgett Carnegie
Veganism has come a long way! Once reserved for peaceloving hippies, interest in a totally animal-free diet is at an all-time high, with celebrities like Bill Clinton, Alicia Silverstone, Jay Z, and Beyoncé leading the charge. But before you jump on the no-meat-eggs-or-dairy bandwagon, you should know what you’re getting into. You’ll need a B12 supplement-Vitamin B12 occurs naturally only in animal foods, so you’ll want to stock up on a variety of B12-fortified foods as well as a B12 supplement. And maybe an iron supplement, too. Iron comes in two forms: heme and non-heme. Heme, which makes up about 40% of the iron in animal foods, is easily absorbed by the body. Vegan diets contain only non-heme, which is less readily absorbed, so you may need to ingest more iron if you want to get the same benefit. Your friends and family will ask a lot of questions. “People are very sensitive about their diets, especially when you challenge what they have always believed,” says plantbased dietitian Julieanna Hever, RD, host of Veria Living’s What Would Julieanna Do? “The best way to minimize conflict is to emphasize that you are going vegan for your own reasons and that it seems to work for you. In other words, make it about you, so nobody feels they need to defend their choices.” You’ll have to find new protein sources. Every meal should contain protein, says vegan dietitian Valerie Rosser, RD. Proteins are the building blocks of life: they break down into amino acids that promote cell growth and repair. The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults get at least 0.8 grams of protein daily for every kilogram of body mass—that’s about 54 grams for a 150-pound woman. You shouldn’t replace animal products with junk, swapping out meat for white bread, pasta, and other packaged foods sets you up for failure on the vegan diet, says Rosser. “It’s not a good idea to trade in animal products, which contain protein, vitamins, and minerals, for processed foods that provide little nutritional value other than calories.” The result: hunger, weight gain, and a grumpier mood. Take it easy on soy-based products. In general, critics overstate the dangers of soy and the promoters exaggerate its benefits. Though scientists are still arguing over the effects of soy on cancer and heart health, one thing is for certain: “Consuming too much soy-based vegan ‘meat’ is arguably worse (than) consuming high-quality animal products,” You don’t have to make the switch at once. You won’t just wake up one morning magically vegan. It takes work, so it should also take time, “Start by adding more plant-based foods to your diet, while at the same time cutting back on animal products, especially those that are non-organic, and more importantly processed, refined foods. Making gradual changes and assessing how you are feeling along the way is key,” she says. Be prepared to read food labels. If you’re serious about being vegan, checking food labels and verifying ingredients is a must. “Just because a food product is not glaringly non-vegan doesn’t

Animals won’t be the only ones happy with your vegan move. So will you. One reason why: Compared to vegetarian diets, omnivorous ones contain more arachidonic acid, which can spur neurological changes that drag down mood, according to a 2012 Nutrition Journal study. The NIH recommends that adults between the ages of 19 and 50 get a minimum of 1,000 mg of calcium a day, but preliminary research shows vegans may be able to get away with less than that.. The key is eating a variety of naturally calcium-rich foods such as kale, bok choy, almonds, soy beans, figs, and navel oranges as well as calcium-fortified foods such as cereals, plant-based milks, and tofu made with calcium sulfate, Henderson says. Bonus: soy, leafy greens, and most fortified foods are also high in vitamin D, which helps your body absorb calcium. It doesn’t have to cost more. At $3 or more per pound, meat is one of the most expensive items in the grocery store, so saving big can be easy—even if you are buying more produce than ever. Save even more by swapping some of your fresh produce for frozen.
