Patriot Day Observed By NCCISD Superintendent Kristi Powers

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Often

referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives against terrorism. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters. To commemorate the events of September 11, 2001, all students and staff at NCCISD observed a moment of silence. continued page 2

Slow Moving Wheels Of Justice Former Real County Constable and former candidate for Real County Sheriff, Bethel Standley was charged last Friday with Retaliation - Public Servant. Standley has been embroiled in an ongoing lawsuit with Real County in which Real County was recently awarded judgment against him. Retaliation against a Public Servant is listed as an assault charge under Sec. 22.01 of the Texas Penal Code: ASSAULT. (a) A person commits an offense if the person: (1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, including the person’s spouse; (2) intentionally or knowingly threatens another with imminent bodily injury, including the person’s spouse; or (3) intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative. (b) An offense under Subsection (a)(1) is a Class A misdemeanor, except that the offense is a felony of the third degree if the offense is committed against: (1) a person the actor knows is a public servant

while the public servant is lawfully discharging an official duty, or in retaliation or on account of an exercise of official power or performance of an official duty as a public servant; Real County District Attorney Daniel Kindred declined to say Monday in a phone interview who Standley had allegedly retaliated against. Records to indicate who the retaliation was against were elusive but were eventually obtained Tuesday morning. The complaint reads: “On September 13, 2013 at approximately 8:25 PM Garry Merritt had arrived home from town with his young daughter. As he exited his truck and began walking towards the residence a vehicle pulled up behind his and a man stepped out Garry identified as Bethel Standley, in a threatening manner by stating “Garry get over here” and “I’ve got you now” while at the same time positioning himself by extending his arm towards Garry Merritt in a manner in which Garry Merritt in the darkness and blinded by Bethel Standley’s headlights, believed a firearm was being pointed at him. Acting out of fear and self-protection Garry Merritt stepped behind a group of cedar trees and accidently slipped off a bluff, at which time Bethel Standley got in his

truck and sped away. Garry Merritt called the Sheriff’s Office to report the incident. The Real County Sheriff James Earl Bryce (sic) located Bethel Standley in his vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Sheriff Bryce (sic) spoke to Bethel Standley about the incident with Garry Merritt and Bethel Standley said he went to Garry Merritt’s residence to confront him on service of the papers involving the law suit. Sheriff Bryce (sic) located a fully loaded Semi-Automatic handgun .380 caliber in the glove box of Bethel Standley’s vehicle.” Kindred said the case was presented to him by the Real County Sheriff’s Office and after reviewing it was determined that probable cause existed that an offense had occurred. An arrest warrant was issued and Standley was arrested by Texas Ranger Wayne Matthews on Friday September 13, 2013 and released on $15,000 bond on September 14, 2013. As listed above the charge is a third degree felony. Kindred said the case will be investigated further and following completion of the investigation the case could be presented to the Grand Jury for consideration of indictment. Kindred was quick to remind, “He is innocent until proven guilty and the charge was

REAL COUNTY HOSTS AREA COUNTY JUDGES Real County hosted a Regional Judicial Education Workshop for County Judges at the Real County Courthouse on September 12. Judges in attendance were Real County Judge Garry Merritt, Uvalde County Judge Bill Mitchell, Medina County Judge Jim Barden, Kimble County Judge Andy Murr, Mason County Judge Jerry Bearden, Tom Green County Judge Mike Brown, Concho County Judge Allen Amos, Edwards County Judge Souli Shanklin, Val Verde County Judge

Laura Allen, and Dimmit County Judge Frank Ponce. The workshop was conducted by David Hodges from Texas Association of Counties and focused on criminal, civil, probate, and administrative law. “County Judges must have a deep understanding of many aspects of state and federal law,” said Real County Judge Garry Merritt. “We also have to work constantly to stay informed about changes in the law and procedure. This workshop provided a good opportunity to

get that training and stay close to home.” “It was also a tremendous honor for Real County to be selected to host this event,” said Judge Merritt. “Thank you to District and County Clerk Bella Rubio and her deputy D’Ann Green for decorating the meeting room and Ramona Martinez at Friends Grill for a great lunch. It is always nice to show visitors what a great place Real County is.”

Edwards County Commissioner’s Corner by Lee Sweeten

Well, here it is the middle of September and while the mornings are definitely cooler the afternoons still feel like summer. Over the last few months, we have been working diligently on the Edwards County Budget and while most counties have already adopted next year’s budget, we still have a ways to go. It would be a simple process if the revenue would equal the needs of the county. I look at that sentence and think how true that would be for all of us. Life would be simple if we all had enough money to cover our needs. As for me, it never seems to work that way. Did you know that the average American holds about $15,000.00 in credit card debt. So it seems that the trend of thrift and savings that made this country great has given way the a new American dream of being in debt in order to have all the things we want. But wait, once again, I have gotten side tracked and off the subject of the County budget. All of the budget workshops have been open to the public and while a few individual have attended and given comments, for the most part there has not been the amount of public participation that I feel should happen. After all, it is your tax money we are talking about. For those of you who have attended and have participated in

the process, I offer my thanks to you for showing the interest and taking the time to do so. Once again, this year budgeting process has been a struggle. For the last two years we have reduced spending and have increased taxes in an effort to get the County back to a balanced budget without dipping into the reserve funds. Some positions have been consolidated and some remain open and unfilled. Still, it appears that once again this years final budget will have to use some of the reserve funds in order to balance. For me, it has been a difficult process. I still believe in thrift and savings. However, I see no alternative, unless we cut services. Anyway, as it appears now, the Commissioners Court will formally adopt next year’s Edwards County Budget and tax rates at a special Commissioners’ Court meeting on September 30th. Traffic thru Barksdale continues to be a problem. Many afternoons, I sit in front of Angel Wings Cafe with a cup of coffee. It amazes me that so many drivers totally ignore the speed limit and especially the school zone. What is even more amazing is that so many of these drivers are local residents and have absolutely no excuse. There has been an increase in patrolling by law enforcement but the overall problem still exist.

On a broader subject, over the last several weeks there have been many stories relating to the National Security Administration (NSA) and how it is listening in on our daily conversations and reading our emails. Now many of you may think this is no big deal and that in order to avert terrorists plots, it is ok. As for me, I disagree and feel that this is a direct violation of the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution which states. “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” This leads in to this week’s quote (one I have used before) and again it comes from Thomas Jefferson who said, A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither.” As always, if you have comments on this article or other County related issues, feel free to contact me either on my cell (210) 912-8481 or at home (830) 234-3160 or via email at

DRT District VII Workshop San Antonio, Texas continued from front page

Patricia Ward joined Mary Dale Brewer, Ernestine Carson, Teena Hughes, Jane Van Hoozer, Kay Anderson and Judy Burleson for the Friday night welcome from the Alamo Couriers Chapter, which included a night tour of the Alamo grounds and Davy Crocket re-enactors. The ladies stayed in the historic Emily Morgan (Doubletree) Hotel that overlooks the Alamo Plaza. On Saturday, the group met in the Plaza Club on the 21st floor of the Frost Bank building for a business meeting. President General Ellen McCaffrey greeted the Daughters and reported that contractual agreements between the DRT and the General Land Office are on-going. The GLO complimented the DRT Library staff and volunteers for the suburb job of auditing its collection, valued at $13 million. This audit has been performed by a small staff and a large group of volunteers and

is currently 87.5% complete. The DRT Library is a wonderful source for genealogical research and is located on the Alamo grounds. Plans for a Republic Village to

house the DRT headquarters and museum are going forward. Property adjacent to the French Legation in Austin where Republic Village will be constructed has been paid in full by DRT members

and generous donors. The next phase will be ground breaking for the new facility. The 2014 Texas History contest for fourth and seventh grade students will be conducted this spring. The choice of topics for fourth grade is William Barrett Travis or the letter “Victory or Death,” and the topic for the seventh grade is William Barrett Travis and the impact of the letter “Victory or Death.” Area fourth and seventh grade students, their parents and teachers are encouraged to make these topics a part of this year’s curriculum. Contest entry information will be given to schools soon. The workshop ended with Alamo Couriers member Mary Ann Oliver being elected as the District VII representative and with Davy Crocket blowing out the candles on his birthday cake, celebrating 227 years.

filed in abundance of caution.” Ranger Matthews referred me to the media relations office. A text to Real County Judge Garry Merritt requesting a comment on the arrest (before I knew he was the complainant) garnered this reply “ I do not have a comment because it is a pending criminal case.” Bethel Standley quickly returned my call and adamantly stated, “I simply went to talk to my elected County Official, we are supposed to get to talk to them, and he ran off.” Standley went on to say “I did not have a gun on me when I got out of my car.” Standley said the reason for his trip to see the County Judge was in regard to the ongoing lawsuit with Real County and that the county has now filed against his ex-wife for property she received in their divorce settlement. The speed with which this case moved left me awe struck. I understand that this complaint was made by an elected public official, but should a case involving a public servant move at lightening speed while the rest of the citizens of our county wait for their turn with the slow moving wheels of justice.

Safe Haven, which BEC launched in August, allows a person in distress to feel safe asking a BEC employee for assistance. The program opens a door of communication between a person in distress, perhaps a child who is lost, and emergency response via our radio and dispatch services. Our service vehicles are all marked with a BEC logo and now a Safe Haven bumper sticker. If you see one of these appropriately marked vehicles, you can be sure the BEC representative will provide a safe place for you until proper authorities arrive.

Friends of the Frio held our 24th Annual Trash Bash on September 7th; we had about 400 volunteers cleaning up over 20 miles of the Frio River. This year we had almost 20 teams cleaning the river. Many of the teams split into two teams. This enabled us to clean the Frio River from Camp Live Oak in Leakey to Neal’s in Concan. As usual, the amount of trash picked up was daunting. Again this year, many of the volunteers were upset by the amount of glass that was picked up. Glass bottles and containers are not allowed on the river. We also had the usual trash of cans, plastic bottles, flip-flops and sun glasses. After cleaning the river Friends of the Frio gathered with about 200 of the volunteers at Garner State Park Pavilion for a complete barbeque dinner. Door prizes were then given to the volunteers. The following people and businesses helped make this year’s river clean up a great success. 4 J River Way American Legions ,American Rivers

Well it is that time of the year again. Yep, it is time for the Nueces Canyon Gypsy M/C to hold another Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament. As many of you know the Nueces Canyon Gypsy M/C chapter raises money for the Chapter’s annual Christmas Project. For several years now we have raised money to provide some Christmas cheer to many individuals and families who otherwise may receive little if anything. In years past we have given gift certificates to needy families and/or individuals and have provided gifts to the residents of the local geriatric center. Well this year we are planning something a little different. Now, if I told you what that was, it would not be a good Holiday surprise gift. All I will say is that we believe the project will benefit many families here in the Canyon area. This year, the tournament will be held Saturday afternoon September 21st at Two Fat Boys BBQ in Camp Wood. Your $25.00 donations allow you to play and also will provide you with a plate of some of the best BBQ in the area. If you fall out early you can also buy back in for another $20.00 donation. Cards fly at 2:00 PM. Besides raising money for a good cause, the friendly competition among the participants always provides a good time for everyone. Even if you are not an avid poker player, we think that you would truly enjoy coming and joining in the activities. So make plans to come and join us in the fun and maybe, just maybe you can claiming the bragging rights to being the best Texas Hold’em player in the area..... For more information or to pre-register call Chug at Two Fat Boys BBQ in Camp Wood at (830) 597-2333

Homecoming week begins with tomorrow night’s bonfire. The bonfire will be constructed by school personnel, with additions that must be subject to the approval of Principal Castro. This year the bonfire will take place at 7:30 pm in the open area between the track and weight room. Streets to the school will be blocked off. Parking will be at Sabinal Veteran’s Park only. The Sabinal Volunteer Fire Department will be present in order to ensure safety of all individuals. The traditional SHS flame will be lit by senior class officers. On Friday night, the Yellowjackets will face off against San Antonio’s Brooks Academy Bengals at 7: 30 pm. Because of the activities surrounding homecoming, there will be no 5th Quarter.

First Baptist Church

This coming Sunday there will be a film on Billy Graham’s My Hope for America. His organization has presented My Hope all over the world. And thus, Billy Graham felt “Why not America.” With the death of long time friend, George Beverley Shea, on April 16 at the age of 104, whose voice was ever present at all evangelism presentations of the Billy Graham Ministries, it is even more meaningful for this presentation of My Hope for America to be a success. Graham is fast aproaching his 95th year and this might well be his last big appeal to mainstream America. All the more important for each one to share with one the message that Graham has for God’s people.

First United Methodist

For some time now, the church members have been using a number of projects to raise money for new construction to take place for the education building. The new plans will revamp the kitchen, provide more classrooms for Sunday School, and enlarge the fellowship hall. Pledging not to begin construction until all monies have been raised is the feeling of the members. The pledges have slowly been coming in and progress has been made. On Friday, October 11, First United Methodist will host the 5th Quarter for the

game between Rocksprings and Sabinal. All junior high and high school students are welcome to attend following the game. Traditionally the teens will be served frito pie and a good time is planned for all. Upcoming is the church bazaar which will be held on Saturday, November 2 starting at 9 am. There will be a spaghetti dinner, live auction, silent auction, arts and crafts, a beautiful quilt auction, and a bake sale. Church Conference will be held Monday, November 11 at 7 pm. A meal will be served and congregants are invited to bring desserts.

Saint Patrick Catholic

Religious Education classes began last Wednesday. There will be no registration prior to RE. To register your child, you must present that child’s baptismal certificate and come by the office to register. Registration will not take place during RE time. Classes are held each Wednesday from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. If you have questions, contact Sharon Mechler after 4:30 pm at 830-279-9010 or the church office Monday through Friday from 10 am to noon or from 3 pm to 5 pm. Promoting Church vocations for priests, brothers, sisters, and deacons is the objective of Vocation Central. There are cards available at the back of the church for a person to contact the right party or you can go online to http:// for more information.

Chris Story Update

The son of Glenda and Charley Story, Chris, is releasing his first CD, “Chapter One”, at a special party in Luchenbach on Saturday, September 21. Containing country western music, this young man from Sabinal knows how to play a variety of forms of music. Since he began in the country western field, his first chapter is aptly filled with that his country favorites. You can purchase his products online at Congratulations and best of luck.

Back to Church Sunday

Central Christian observed Back to Church Sunday on September 15, the day designated as Back to Church Sunday. There were almost 90 people in attendance.

They were treated to a solo, “God On the Mountain,” sung by Glenda Story. It was an exciting time in the church to meet and greet so many new and returning members and friends. This will most probably become an annual event. Back to Church Sunday has the support of Lifeway, Outreach, Church, Sermon and WAY--FM.

Hudson Brotherhood

Every fourth Sunday each month, excluding December, a fellowship of Christian believers regardless of church affiliation, meet over breakfast from 8 am to 9 am at different churches in Sabinal. This fourth Sunday, the meeting will be at First United Methodist, located at the corner of San Antonio Street and Fisher Avenue (Highway 90). It is open to all men and boys in the area and all are welcome to attend. A devotional and possibly a solo may be sung, but one thing for sure, you will meet fellow believers and your faith will be strengthened.

Two Men and Their Contrasting Views

hard time admitting that he is wrong even when it is evident to everyone else. Honesty and integrity take a back seat to appearances. Since the Bible says, “A good name is better than precious ointment…” (Ecclesiastes 7:1a) and “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches…” (Proverbs 22:1a) the second man is always careful to be honest and dependable in his dealings with others. He believes that the inward man is of far greater value than the physical, outward man. “Wherefore we faint not; but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16 ESV). This difference between the physical (that which is seen) and the spiritual (the unseen) is explained by Paul when he writes, “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4: 18). The second man buys what he needs to live but he lives within his monetary limits. He is laying up for himself treasures that are not of this world (Matthew 6:19-21). Where is your treasure?

It is amazing how differently two men raised in the same town, graduating from the same schools and living in close proximity to one another can think about certain things. Even though both men lived the same life styles and were steeped in the same culture, they differ greatly in the things that they value. The first man places great value on the physical appearance of his clothes, his pickup, his possessions and his wife and children. He spends plenty of money to keep these appearances up. He even goes beyond what he can afford and uses credit to pay for small things such as clothes, cosmetics and truck parts. The second man knows that the material things of this world will not last for long and so he concentrates on the spiritual side of his life. He values truth, honesty, integrity and a good reputation above the material things of this life. If he cannot afford finer clothes or other flashy things of this life he waits until he can before he spends his money. He tries to avoid credit for anything except the big-ticket items such as his house and car. He is diligent to make all payments on time so he can maintain his good name. The first man often struggles to balance his bank book because of the debt load that he has taken on. He has even taken out more credit to pay the payments for the credit that he already owes. He looks good and his family looks good outwardly - but he sometimes is less than honest as he deals with others. He does whatever it takes to keep up appearances. He often has a

Four Precious Women by Tracy Renee Lee

Four precious women came to my office. Although they were sorrowful, they filled my funeral home with joy. This was the day they had known would come; they were prepared both mentally and spiritually. Between the four of them, the loss was great. They had not only lost their daddy, husband, and grandpa; they had lost their spiritual leader. The man in my parlor, while living, had been a Reverend. His congregation had been small in number, but large in kindness, generosity, and acceptance. As we worked through the details of laying the Reverend to rest, this darling family of women, cooperated and supported each other with softness and love. These four precious women were a true testament to his work. Through the days that followed, the girls served their mother, and each other, with tenderness. Their parishioners, one by one, came to the funeral home, and one by one, did so with kindness, respect, and compassion. Indeed, the Reverend’s influence seems to have emulated the light of Christ to those he served. During the week of this man’s death, these four precious women, demonstrated flawless virtue and goodness. My heart grew with respect, admiration, and love for them. My conviction in Christ’s mission was magnified, and my hope for humanity was shored up. The Reverend’s final resting place was not where he had lived, and so necessity dictated that he travel a great distance for interment. I was hesitant to see these four precious women embark upon the final leg of their journey, but knew they had an errand of love to fulfill. Therefore, as I bid them farewell, my prayers and love went with them. These four precious women, who came to my office, suffering the greatest pain that we as humans endure, left it filled with joy. I am grateful to them for sharing their time with me, for exemplifying the light of Christ, and for bearing their wounds with grace and dignity. Although this week was caused by a solemn occasion, my soul was lifted, my joy was increased, and my cup was filled. Even in his death, the Good Reverend’s work lives on. My name is Tracy Renee Lee. I am a funeral director, author, and freelance writer. I write books, weekly articles, and brief tips related to understanding and coping with grief. It is my life’s work to comfort the bereaved and help them live on.

FALSE TEACHINGS…FALSE PROPHETS Discernment is exhibiting keen insight and good judgment, wisdom and clarity of understanding. Sometimes I find the most difficult thing in writing is to put into words an ideal. Something that is not perceived with the 5 senses. The only example I can think of to make it clear, is my children’s voices. I can hear the inflection on different words and tell if they are trying to reassure me that everything is fine, when there is really a problem. That is not something that is touchable and is a mother’s gift or honed instinct, whatever you want to call it, but it is as real as the paper you are holding. It is a type of discernment. In every age discernment is necessary. Isaiah 11: 2-3 (NIV) (in part) says the Spirit of the Lord will rest upon him--He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears. I hear discussions regarding judgment. It is a topic that some use in stating the word of God contradicts itself. I am not an authority by any means, however, it is fairly clear to me that the Word of God speaks of judgment in two different ways. One meaning self righteous judgment and the other meaning discernment. It is very easy to tell in which context the word is being used. Discernment is almost a subconscious reaction in some circumstances…your teenage daughter brings home a tattooed, cigarette smoking

15 year old boy friend…all flags go up! In other circumstances it is a little more difficult. Today, we are being inundated with changing values…however, the Word of God never changes. What was “then” is the same “now.” Today in some churches, we have “user friendly” religion. Whatever lifestyle you choose is alright by the church, just give that ten percent. These are false prophets. False teachers and they endanger the immortal soul of every person they contaminate with their words. That might seem a little strong, I am nobody, I sin, I smoke. Yes that is a sin. Am I judging these people who distort the Word of God…no, I am not. I am judging or discerning the fruit of their labor by the standard before me. The Word of God. Matthew 7:15-16,22-23 (NIV) tells us clearly, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them... I believe that God intends for us to use our common sense. He told us, “yes, it’s Sunday but if your animal falls in a ditch…pull it out!“ Keep my day holy but use your head! Why else would we have been given absolute freedom of choice. There is none to blame for our choices, none to blame for our actions. WE CHOOSE. Because of this, I believe it is our responsibility to test the words

Hill Country

By Elaine Padgett Carnegie

we hear and to learn of the things we are taught. I have frequently referred friends, family and acquaintances to the Word of God (which means I constantly preach daily living to my children and to those I encounter in my life), but never have I written about it. For help and resources I have relied on and other sources for both ideas and answers in the following, in case you would like to read it for yourself. One very serious, predominate place we find false teachings and prophets today is when Church traditions, doctrine and/or religious sanctions of man are placed alongside of the Bible as if it were the word of God. Sometimes these traditions become more important than the Bible itself, or are used to re-interpret the Bible. I don’t ever mean to step on toes, I think most any service in the name of God is good, however, I believe that each of us, as we stand before the Lord will have to account for our actions. I don’t believe, “my preacher told me to” is going to be the answer I want to give Him. How about you? I just wish that every person could understand how much good there is in this world and how much there is to gain by giving back. Christianity, religion, God is not about strife and hatred and “I’m right and you are wrong!“ He is all about love, in its purest sense. False teaching

destroys that. False teaching leads people down a path that seems good but ends in failure and heartache. It is not popular and probably never was, but you must make your own decisions in this life. Study, read, watch others and learn before you forge a path of your own. I always tend to reduce everything to its lowest form so it is easily understandable and I can make sense from it. For me, it all boils down to God, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. God created all things, by virgin birth gave us Salvation by one route (only one) who is the Son, who perished on the cross, at our hands, in our sin, for the love of us, and left the Holy Spirit as our Comforter and the word of God as our guide. If your minister teaches that you will surely get to heaven because you were such a Godly man, that is false, it is in direct opposition to the word of God. Test what you are taught, watch the fruit of those who teach you. Any doctrine, sermon or practice that is not under the direction of the Bible is false. If there is a rotten potato in your bag of potatoes, what happens? The rot spreads…Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”



A cardiologist says If everyone who sees this article shares it with 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.. Share -Share -Share -Save A Life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help,the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before

losing consciousness. However,these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about

every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!


What is Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis (PAM)?

the water?

Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis or PAM is an infection of the brain and the membranous tissues that surround and cover the spinal cord and brain. The causative agent is an ameba from the genus Naegleria and species fowleri; Naegleria fowleri. Naegleria fowleri is commonly found in warm freshwater and soil.. The initial infective event has been linked to activities in fresh-water (untreated) and during the hotter months of the year. In very rare situations, Naegleria fowleri has been known to cause infection in humans. This infection of the meninges and brain tissue, once it has occurred, progresses rapidly, causing massive destruction of the brain and meningeal tissues, resulting in coma and death within 10 days from onset of symptoms. This infection is almost always fatal.

No. It can take weeks to grow and identify the ameba. Newer genetic detections tests for ameba are still under development. Water testing suggests that the ameba are so common that recreational water users should assume that there is a low level of risk when entering all warm fresh water in southern tier states such as Texas.

How does the risk of Naegleria fowleri infection compare with other water-related risks?

How does infection with Naegleria fowleri occur?

Although infections are severe, the risk of Naegleria fowleri infections is very low. There have been 30 reported infections in the U.S. during the 10 years from 2000-2009, despite millions of recreational water exposures each year. By comparison, during the ten years from 1996 to 2005, there were over 36,000 drowning deaths in the U.S.

What are the symptoms of Naegleria fowleriinfections PAM?

Just like the U.S., the risk of Naegleria fowleri infections is very rare in Texas. Cases that occur in the U.S. typically happen in states with warm climate and abundance of recreational waters such as Texas. From 1983 to 2012 there were 28 deaths from Naegleria fowleri infections in Texas. Compared to other conditions such as drowning and other types of meningitis, PAM is very rare. In Texas, from 2004 to 2008, there were 3 cases of PAM, 749 deaths from drowning, and 225 cases of bacterial meningitis.

Naegleria fowleri infects people by entering the body through the nose. Generally, this occurs when people swim or dive in warm freshwater, especially stagnant ponds or lakes in warm climate areas. The ameba travels up the nose to the brain and spinal cord where it destroys brain tissue. The ameba may also enter the nose when nasal irrigation or sinus flushes are performed using plain tap water rather than sterile, distilled, or lukewarm previously boiled water.

Hold the nose shut or use nose clips when taking part in water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, or hot springs. • Avoid digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas. • If you use a Neti Pot or syringe for nasal irrigation or sinus flushes be sure to use only sterile, distilled or lukewarm previously boiled water. Portions of these FAQs were developed by Naegleria workgroup sponsored by the Council or State and Territorial Epidemiologists and CDC. For further information on protecting yourself from recreational water illnesses, go to

Does PAM occur in Texas?

How can I reduce the risk of infection with Naegleria fowleri?

Infections with Naegleria fowleri cause the disease PAM, a brain infection that leads to the destruction of brain tissue. In its early stages, Naegleria fowleri infection may be similar to bacterial meningitis. Initial symptoms of PAM start 1 to 7 days after infection. Symptoms may include headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and/or stiff neck. Later symptoms may include confusion, lack of attention to people and surroundings, a loss of balance, seizures, and/or hallucinations. After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly and usually causes death occurs within 10 days, usually on the 5th or 6th day. Is there effective treatment for infection with Naegleria fowleri? It is not clear. Several drugs are effective against Naegleria fowleri in the laboratory. However, their effectiveness is unclear since almost all infections have been fatal even when people were treated.

It is likely that a low risk of Naegleria fowleri infection will always exist with recreational use of warm freshwater lakes, rivers and hot springs. The low number of infections makes it difficult to know why some people have been infected compared to the millions of other people using the same or similar waters across the U.S. The only way to prevent Naegleria fowleri infections is to refrain from water-related activities. If you do plan to take part in water-related activities, here are some measures that might reduce risk: • Understand routes of exposure and use common-sense prevention practices to limit exposure risk. • Avoid water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels

Is there a routine and rapid test for Naegleria fowleri in

I love chicken, but I am not much at frying it! So here are some tips on how to handle chicken from scratch. Chicken is really easy to cook but you might be wondering how to fry chicken, how to bake chicken or how to butcher a chicken. What about finding out how long to cook chicken to make it safe to eat but not dried out? This is very important to know. It can be hard to get the timing of chicken right because undercooked chicken is risky to eat and overcooked chicken is dry, so here are a few tips to help you make the juiciest, most succulent chicken recipes ever!

How to Bake Chicken

Baked chicken is healthy and you can add any herbs, spices or seasonings you like to the chicken breast before baking it, to give it a beautiful flavor. Rub oil over the chicken before you bake it, and then cook it until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken breast reads 170 degrees F. If you are baking chicken thighs, they should be 185 degrees F. Squeeze the juice from a wedge of lemon or lime over the chicken before baking it to give it a mouthwatering taste. Half an hour in an oven heated to 350 degrees F is usually sufficient to bake chicken breasts to perfection and you can serve baked chicken recipes with rice, pasta, potatoes, salad, vegetables or anything else you like, for a complete meal.

How to Pan Fry Chicken

If you are wondering how to make fried chicken, the good news is this is one of the easiest chicken cooking methods. You can choose from pan frying or deep-frying. If you want to cook the chicken healthily, pan-frying or stir-frying it is a good choice. Cut the chicken up into small cubes. Try to get the cubes the same size so they will take the same amount of time to cook. Add some oil or cooking spray to the pan and cook the chicken over a moderately hot heat until the outside is golden brown and the chicken is cooked all the way through. Small pieces of chicken take about four minutes to cook. The easiest way to check if your chicken is done is to cut into one of the pieces of chicken. If it is white all the way through it is done. If there is any pink inside give it another minute or two.

fortify the flavor. To make a healthy chicken pie recipe, combine the chicken with vegetables, chicken stock (left over from poaching the chicken) and fresh herbs for a mouthwatering pie filling.


1 pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts 1 stick of Butter, divided 2 whole Carrots, peeled and diced small 2 Celery Stalks, diced small 1 cup Diced Cooked Potatoes 1 medium Yellow Onion, peeled and diced small 1 cup Frozen Peas 1/2 cup Frozen Corn 3 cups Chicken Broth, warmed 1-1/2 cups Whole Milk 1/2 cup Flour 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt, more or less to taste 1/2 teaspoons Black Pepper, more or less to taste 1 tablespoon Dried Parsley 1 teaspoon Chopped Fresh Thyme 1 recipe for Homemade Pie Crust {check my blog for the recipe!} 6 (10-ounce) Ramekins


Place two to three chicken breasts in a glass baking dish. Cover the chicken with 3 to 4 cups of boiling water, seal it all in with aluminum foil and place in a 400 degree oven to cook for 25-35 minutes. Remove the chicken to a cutting board to cool. When cool enough to touch, dice it into bite-size pieces.

Simple Crockpot Chicken

One of the easiest ways to cook a chicken breast is using a crockpot. This is a good way to cook it if you are only cooking for one or two people because a crockpot uses very little electricity. Add some water to your crockpot and a splash or red or white wine. Throw in a couple of bay leaves, some dried herbs or spices and also some salt and black pepper. Add one or two whole chicken breasts and put the lid on the crockpot. Cook the chicken on a low heat for four or five hours. Check it after four hours - if the chicken is white all the way through it is ready. You can either serve it or let it cool and have it cold the following day with a salad or freeze it for a future recipe. If you have some chicken breasts in the refrigerator, which need to be used up, slow cooking them makes them moist, flavorful, and cooked chicken keeps longer than raw chicken.

International Recipes with Chicken

Chicken is perfect for making international recipes because its soft flavor goes with so many other ingredients. You might like to make an Italian chicken dish with plenty of cream and cheese or a spicy Mexican chicken dish with bell peppers, tomatoes, and chilies. If you are new to making chicken and looking for chicken cooking tips, you might want to choose easy chicken recipes, especially when cooking international dishes. Perhaps a dish will call for fresh chilies, in which case you will need to find out how to prepare them. Other dishes might call for international cheeses or other ingredients from overseas. You can often use substitutions in recipes if you cannot get specific ingredients.

Tips for Cooking Chicken Pie

Chicken pie is a timeless classic recipe and you can use leftover cooked chicken to make it. To make a pie, which is full of wonderful flavor, add plenty of fresh vegetables. You can use leeks, broccoli, mushrooms, or potatoes, for example. Adding some ham and wine or sherry can also

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease six 10-ounce ramekins with butter or olive oil. Roll the pie crust out and use a bowl {slightly larger than the ramekin}, trace and cut out 6 circles, using the scraps to make more if needed. Keep the dough circles in the fridge so they stay cold. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large Dutch oven. Add in the diced carrots and cook for 5 minutes. Add in the diced onion and celery and season with a teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent and the carrots are soft {but not too soft}. Now add in the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter and let that melt. Once melted add in the half cup of flour and stir often while it cooks for 2 minutes. Pour in the 3 cups of hot chicken broth and the 1-1/2 cups of whole milk. Let that simmer, stirring occasionally until thickened 5-8 minutes. Next add in the frozen peas, corn, cooked chicken, dried parsley and chopped fresh thyme. Stir. Taste add season further with up to a teaspoon more of salt and a little more black pepper if desired. Place the ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Evenly divide the diced cooked potatoes into each prepared ramekin. Spoon the pot pie filling evenly over the potatoes, filling the ramekins to the brim. Let them cool down a bit before placing the pie dough over top and crimping the edges. With a sharp knife make slits for ventilation. Slide the tray of pot pies into a preheated 375 degree oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is golden. Remove and let them cool for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! NOTES: *For a glossy top crust, try beating an egg with a tablespoon of water and brush over top before baking. *This can also be made in one 13x9 baking dish. This recipe is from Simply Scratch and it is wonderful! My kids love it.

The Truth About Fat White fat White fat is much more plentiful than brown, experts agree. The job of white fat is to store energy and produce hormones that are then secreted into the bloodstream. Small fat cells produce a “good guy” hormone called adiponectin, which makes the liver and muscles sensitive to the hormone insulin, in the process making us less susceptible to diabetes and heart disease. When people become fat, the production of adiponectin slows down or shuts down, setting them up for disease, according to Fried and others. Subcutaneous Fat Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin. It’s the fat that’s measured using skin-fold calipers to estimate your total body fat. In terms of overall health, subcutaneous fat in the thighs and buttocks, for instance, may not be as bad and may have some potential benefits, says Cypess. “It may not cause as many problems” as other types of fat, specifically the deeper, visceral fat, he says. But subcutaneous fat cells on the belly may be another story, says Fried. There’s emerging evidence that the danger of big bellies lies not only in the deep visceral fat but also the subcutaneous fat. Visceral Fat Visceral or “deep” fat wraps around the inner organs and spells trouble for your health. How do you know if you have it? “If you have a large waist or belly, of course you

have visceral fat,” Whitmer says. Visceral fat drives up your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia. Visceral fat is thought to play a larger role in insulin resistance -- which boosts risk of diabetes -- than other fat, Whitmer tells WebMD. It’s not clear why, but it could

explain or partially explain why visceral fat is a health risk. Whitmer investigated the link between visceral fat and dementia. In a study, she evaluated the records of more than 6,500 members of Kaiser Permanente of Northern California, a large health maintenance organization, for an average of 36 years, from the time they were in their 40s until they were in their 70s. The records included details on height, weight, and belly diameter -- a reflection of the amount of visceral fat. Those with the biggest bellies had a higher risk of dementia than those with smaller bellies. The link was true even for people with excess belly fat but

JUST LIKE A MAN I pilfered this from Facebook with a minimum of rewriting to make it reader friendly. Just try reading this without laughing till you cry! Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this: Last weekend I saw something at Larry’s Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/ purse-sized Tazer. The effects of the Tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety...?? WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home... I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button and pressed it against a metal surface at the same time, I’d get the blue arc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs. AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave. Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn’t be all that bad with only two AAA batteries, right? There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target. I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second)

overall of normal weight. She doesn’t know why belly fat and dementia are linked, but speculates that substances such as leptin, a hormone released by the belly fat, may have some adverse effect on the brain. Leptin plays a role in appetite regulation but also in learning and memory. Belly Fat Belly fat has gotten a mostly deserved reputation as an unhealthy fat. “Understand that belly fat is both visceral and subcutaneous,” says Kristen Gill Hairston, MD, MPH, an assistant professor of medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Wi n s t o n - S a l e m , N.C. “We don’t have a perfect way yet to determine which [of belly fat] is subcutaneous or visceral, except by CT scan, but that’s not cost-effective.” But if you’ve got an oversize belly, figuring out how much is visceral and how much is subcutaneous isn’t as important as recognizing a big belly is unhealthy, she says. How big is too big? Women with a waist circumference more than 35 inches and men with a waist circumference more than 40 inches are at increased disease risk. Abdominal fat is viewed as a bigger health risk than hip or thigh fat, Whitmer and other experts say. And that could mean having a worse effect on insulin resistance, boosting the risk of diabetes, and a worse effect on blood lipids, boosting heart and stroke risks.

the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs! The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room. Note: If you ever feel compelled to ‘mug’ yourself with a Tazer, one note of caution: There is NO such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself! You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor! A three second burst would be considered conservative! A minute or so later (I can’t be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace. The recliner was upside down and about 8 feet or so from where it originally was. My triceps, right thigh were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I had no control over the drooling. Apparently there was something in my shorts, but I was too numb to know for sure, and my sense of smell was gone. I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head, which I believe came from my hair. PS: My wife can’t stop laughing about my experience, loved the gift and now regularly threatens me with it! If you think education is difficult, try being stupid!!!!

and then thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised. Am I wrong? So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and Tazer in another. The directions said that: a onesecond burst would shock and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; and a threesecond burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries. All the while I’m looking at this little device measuring about 5” long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference (loaded with two itsy, bitsy AAA batteries); pretty cute really, and thinking to myself, ‘no possible way!’ What happened next is almost beyond description, but I’ll do my best. I’m sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side so as to say, ‘Don’t do it stupid,’ reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny lil ole thing couldn’t hurt all that bad.. I decided to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and... HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. WHAT THE... !!! I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on
