The Hereford City Commission made official May 5 election results, swore in members for new terms and sidestepped a potential conflict over rezoning during a called meeting Monday. Normally meeting the third Monday of each month, Monday’s called meeting took the place of that to abide by mandates requiring May 5 election results be canvassed and certified no later than May 16. Commissioners went over the vote totals and approved results that saw all four incumbents easily returned to office despite two of them running unopposed. Due to opposition for one

of the city’s at-large seats (Place 6), all candidates were required to be on the ballot whether opposed or not. Unopposed incumbents Angie Alonzo in Place 2 and Place 4’s Linda Cumpton were certified winners with 40 and 89 votes, respectively. Alonzo received 38 of hers in early voting, while Cumpton had 78 early votes cast her way. In what was ultimately a three-person race for the commission’s two at-large seats (Places 5, 6), both incumbents retained their spots without election day votes even needing to be counted. Place 5’s Cathy Bunch was top vote-getter with 209 toPLEASE SEE CITY | 2

The traditional end to the HHS Athletics Appreciation Night obstacle course is a slide across a water-slickened tarp. Required to go head-first into the slide, participants had a variety of ways to perform the task. Right, while nice on a 90plus degree day there is nothing quite like the initial shock of hitting the ground and cold water. Above, Lady Herd volleyballer Carmen Flood and allsport star Dodge DeLozier look as if they are on a synchronized sliding team.

A national effort to remember service members who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the war on terror since the USS Cole bombing in 2000 will make a scheduled stop Thursday in Hereford. Those from Hereford and Deaf Smith County who have fallen while combatting terrorism this century will be remembered during a special ceremony Thursday when Run for the Fallen passes through Hereford on its trek across the country. The event features an organized team of 16 marathon-trained runners, who run in fourperson groups that cover approximately 50 miles per day. Run for the Fallen began April 7 at Fort Irwin, California and is scheduled to complete its 19-state, 6,000-mile trek at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. within 120 days. The run’s stated mission is “blazing a comprehensive tribute trail across America that would recognize each service member who served and died as a result of the War on Terror.” While each mile along the route is marked by the name of a fallen service member and includes a short ceremony performed by the runners that includes honorary salutes, family greetings and the reading of the fallen’s bio. Each day’s run is culminated in a larger ceremony, which Hereford will host at VFW Post 4818 outside Veteran’s Park on PLEASE SEE RUN | 3

Year's first Community Fishing Day wets hook Saturday From Staff Reports

Oil up the reel, wax up the line and dig around the back yard for some worms because the time has come once again for the first of two annual Community Fishing Day in Hereford. Held in May and September every year, the city joins forces with Texas Junior Anglers (TJA) to host the event and promote the sport of fishing. With adult-sized channel catfish stocked in the pond at Josserand Aquatic Park, hooks get wet from 9 a.m.-noon, Saturday. The event has proven popular throughout the years, drawing a crowd on the shores of the city pond despite weather conditions in recent years that have been less than favorable. With a goal of uniting

Youth anglers can register to take part in contests to win prizes for the first fish caught, longest fish caught and two longest fish caught in each age divisions. Sporting goods and fishing equipment will among the prizes to win and those given away in random drawings during the event. The youth angler who

lands the longest fish will receive the grand prize of a bicycle. Young fishermen will be grouped by ages 6 and under, 7-11 and 12-16 for the contests. As with all TJA events, registration is free is for those 16 and younger. For additional information, contact TJA at 817516-0532 or visit www.

Tip of the Day How to help kids learn to love reading

Reading is a passion for many people. But even avid readers may not know just how far back their love of reading stretches. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children who find pleasure in reading have the potential to become lifelong readers. In addition, studies have shown that reading to children can help kids become familiar with sounds, words and language, helping them in their earliest stages of cognitive development. So adults who love books might be able to trace their passion for page-turners to those times their mothers and fathers read aloud to them as youngsters. Parents who want to their children to learn to love reading can rely on various techniques to accomplish that goal. · Make reading a routine. Routine is a necessity for parents, helping children learn when it’s time to eat, play and go to sleep, among other things. Parents can include reading to their children as part of their daily routines. As noted, doing so will promote language skills and cognitive development while also acclimating children to books and providing valuable time for them to bond with their parents. · Create a distraction-free reading environment. When reading to children, parents can create an environment with little to no distractions. This allows kids to focus on their parents’ voices as well as the story they’re being told. Parents can turn off the television and the radio when reading to their kids. In addition, moms and dads should leave smartphones or tablets in another room so they aren’t distracted by alerts or tempted to check for incoming messages or emails. · Read aloud together. Some children may shy away from reading if they struggle in their initial efforts to read. That does not mean kids won’t ultimately enjoy reading,

it just means a little more effort may be required on parents’ part to help kids overcome any issues they have. Reading aloud to children can help little ones learn how to become good readers, as they will learn how to pronounce words and form sentences. Kids who know how to read can be encouraged to read to their parents, which can instill self-esteem. If kids struggle with certain words or sentences when reading aloud, parents can read those words and/ or sentences aloud to them and ask them to repeat the phrases back. · Let kids pick their own books. When reading to youngsters, whether they’re babies, toddlers or already in school, parents can let sons and daughters choose their own books. Children might be especially enthusiastic about reading if they’re allowed to choose their own books and stories. Reading can benefit children from the earliest stages of their lives all the way through adulthood. Parents can take various steps to foster a love of reading in their children.

The Table

Paxton seeks federal funds for women's health program

“If the home is a body, the table is the heart, the beating center, the sustainer of life and health.” - Shauna Niequist, author Our dining table, and each one that has preceded it, has an identity problem. No doubt, it's fulfilled its purpose as an dining setting, for all types of meals, ranging from sacks of take-out to Thanksgiving feasts. I don't know if it's this way at your house, but the family dining table in ours is so much more. Everything happens at our kitchen table, its messy purposes stretching to match our changing needs. Whereas it was once littered with homework, school projects and 4-H posters, it continues to host art projects, manicures, jigsaw puzzles, the day’s mail, books and magazines, and the bane of springtime – income tax forms. Our house is not ideal for wimpy dinettes. We need a sturdy, solid wood slab that's built to last. The shiny finish on our table has been worn down in a few places by nail polish remover from adolescent girls and turpentine from haphazard oil painters. The minor ALL IN nicks along our table's Kerrie Womble Steiert edge mark the passing presence of high chairs and booster seats, clutzy teenagers, canes and walkers. Whether it's the morning newspaper, latest magazine or best-selling novel, when we read, it's usually at the kitchen table. This peculiar habit could be due to the fact that we've reached the age where we tend to doze off if we get too comfy with our reading material while burrowed into the den recliner. My mother-in-law's kitchen was roughly the size of a large walk-in closet with a modest dining table pushed against the wall just so there was enough space to get from the oven to the fridge. In the confined space made smaller by holiday guests, there had to be a committee vote to approach the sink. Once seated at the table, the person nearest the stove ended up being the designated server of all second helpings, which were in high demand because Earlene's meals were that good. In her postage stamp kitchen, she managed to prepare vast quantities of delicious country cooking for our small army of relatives. When it came time for the blessing, we crammed around the table's half-moon edge for the prayer, then lined up to fill plates and scattered to the extra card tables set up for the overflow crowd. My mother actually had a formal dining room with a nice extended table that was usually covered by a church banner under construction, a wedding gown or some other ambitious sewing project. We only ate at the “big table” during the holidays. But the rest of the time, family and friends gathered around an indestructible black slate game table in Mother's kitchen for meals, visiting, and marathon rounds of Canasta. Likewise, my dining table has seen a wide variety of amusements, running the gamut from high-stakes trivia contests to throws of the dice, card play to board games. Whether it's the mouth-watering aromas of fresh-baked cookies or pot roast, the kitchen draws us in like a magnet is pulled to true north. It's the satisfying place we associate with nourishment, comfort and tradition—with home. It’s where we keep family traditions alive by savoring time-proven recipes like Nanny's orange slice cake and my grandmother's cornbread dressing. The kitchen with its warmth and enticing smells is at the heart of most homes. Interestingly, the word “heart” is literally part of “hearth.” Our well-used oak dining table humbly maps the life and seasons of our family. Every scratch, worn place and scar tells a story, etched with memories, recording the touch of the many familiar hands that it has faithfully served. Its surface holds our history, spilled out across the honeyed oak, our past leached into the smooth wood grain. It’s the dining table at the center of family celebrations: richly-laid for birthday parties, graduation dinners, anniversary toasts, bridal showers, Christmas morning brunch. But the ordinary days are important too, when we make time in our hectic schedules to sit at table, to say Grace and mean it, to break bread and touch base with our loved ones, to relate, to listen. The best conversations happen around the family table. Hospitality may start at the front door but it makes itself at home at the dinner table. While there's polite chitchat in the living room, folks usually gravitate to the kitchen table for the laidback times of real sharing of laughter, worries, family news and heart-to-heart talks. I once entertained the fantasy of a dedicated dining room where the elegant polished table was perpetually worthy of company viewing with elegant place settings and a show-stopper of a centerpiece. Sigh... that never happened, but the reality might be just as wonderful.

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton last week asked two federal agencies to move quickly to fund the state's Healthy Texas Women program. The program was cut off from Medicaid funding by the Obama administration in 2012 after the Texas Legislature enacted a law preventing taxpayer money from going to abortion providers. In a May 7 letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Paxton said the addition of some $30 million a year in federal dollars would increase access to family planning and preventative health services for low-income women across the state who are not covered by traditional Medicaid in Texas. Paxton sent the letter at the request of Gov. Greg Abbott and on behalf of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. He wrote that allowing states to exclude providers who perform or STATE promote abortion is consisCAPITAL tent with federal policy. Texas spends $29 billion HIGHLIGHTS a year on Medicaid — more Ed Sterling than one-fourth of the state's annual budget — to serve some 4.3 million people. The state allocates another $95 million annually to fund the Healthy Texas Women program, which has a current enrollment of 240,798 women, Paxton noted. "States have discretion in implementing the Medicaid Act, including in setting qualifications for providers," Paxton wrote. "Texas and the Healthy Texas Women program should not be penalized through the continued withholding of federal funds merely because Texas has exercised the authority that federal law has granted to it — namely, the authority to refuse to be a conduit for channeling taxpayer funds to abortion providers pursuant to state law." Forum honors women Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar on May 7 highlighted Texas women in the workforce by hosting a roundtable discussion with a dozen women leaders who comprise the Texas Governor's Commission for Women. The panel was part of a briefing with the Governor's Commission for Women to review Gov. Abbott's priorities for the commission and to develop strategies to make Texas "the best state for women-owned businesses." The discussion addressed topics such as hardships women face in the workplace, women with families who pursue careers, ways to move more women into higher-paying jobs and women as entrepreneurs. The discussion is part of Hegar's multi-stop "Good for Texas Tour: Women in the Workforce." More than 6 million women held jobs in Texas in 2017 and 938,000 women-owned businesses generated about $134.2 million in sales, but further efforts are needed to eliminate barriers to women's entrepreneurship and improve access to top-level positions, Hegar said. May allocations are sent Comptroller Hegar on May 9 announced his office would send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $861.8 million in local sales tax allocations for the month of May. The amount is 9.4 percent more than was distributed for the month of May 2017. Allocations are based on sales made in March by businesses that report tax monthly and sales made in January, February and March by quarterly filers. Hurricane season coming With the hurricane season less than one month away, Gov. Abbott and the Texas Department of Public Safety on May 7 urged Texans to use Hurricane Preparedness Week to learn how to protect themselves and their families from hurricanes and tropical storms. Hurricane season starts June 1 and continues through Nov. 30. The DPS posted of list of actions to take, such as: — Assemble an emergency kit that includes essential documents, supplies and provisions; — Review hurricane evacuation maps and select a route; — Plan how family members and pets will evacuate safely; — Consider special needs for individuals with disabilities and the elderly; and — Stay informed about changing weather conditions. Abbott honors the fallen Gov. Greg Abbott on May 7 joined law enforcement officers from across the state for the 2018 Texas Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony to honor fallen Texas peace officers and their families. During the ceremony, Abbott met with and presented medals to the families of officers who died in the line of duty. The ceremony included the laying of a memorial wreath and a 21-gun salute. Last year, during the 85th session of the Texas Legislature, Abbott signed House Bill 3647, legislation that established the Texas Peace Officers' Memorial Ceremony as an annual event. This year's ceremony was the first to be conducted since the law was passed. (Ed Sterling is director of member services for the Texas Press Association and can be reached at

Waiting for that right jerk on the other end of the line By Jim Steiert Contributing Writer

In the back-when years one of my favorite youthful indoor pastimes when staying at the home of my grandparents, just miles across the family farm spread down in the Hart country, was getting to sit in the rolling chair at the desk in the corner of the dining room and peck on the typewriter. Having a home typewriter was a really big deal back then—we certainly didn’t have one at our house. Topics for a clacked-out Underwood reverie might include the day’s adventures of hunting sparrows with the BB gun or fishing for catfish in the stock pond that was situated south of the corrals, the windmill, and the big faded red barn with its hay loft and pigeon portholes. Utilizing a hunt and peck style that is still not outdated in today’s computer age, I got down legends of nimrod prowess and occasional history in brief paragraphs etched in red or black as the keys struck ribbon and underlying paper. Unknown to me at the time, perhaps these early adventures of creating brief stories on paper portended my life’s path in future years. There was no mistaking that my granddad spent time in this corner with the desk and the typewriter. A black, and impressively heavy dial telephone sat on the corner of the desk— a rare luxury in those

deduct from man’s allotted time those hours spent fishing.” Then, there was a fervent fisherman’s prayer…“Dear God, Let me catch a fish so big that even I, when speaking of it afterward, need never tell a lie.” And, a daffynition…. FISHERMAN…A jerk on one end of the line— waiting for a jerk on the other end. I still have one of granddad’s old tackle boxes and some of the contents thereof. I disposed of the jars of prehistoric-seeming petrified pork frogs and salmon eggs many years ago. I kept the array of massive lures with huge hooks—jointed contraptions with lead sections, feathers and squirrel tail fur, and some with spinning blades. Fascinating for a kid to look at and

wonder over. Don’t think I’ve ever even had most of them in the water— they were made for way more serious fish that I was ever wetting a line after. Black braided line, heavy leader material, a couple of old bait casting reels, notorious then and now for sow’s nest backlashes. Not wanting snarled backlashes, I mostly just looked at them. The inspiration took, however. Continuing the tradition, I too have been known to utter the prayer for the big one while waiting for the jerk on the other end of the line.

Crossword solution from page 2

A family tradition of angling was founded on an array of fishing gear passed on by a grandfather, and words of angling lore from plaques on the wall. Contributed photo days that we were occasionally allowed to speak oh so briefly on to request the correct time from the operator who answered when we dialed O, or to ask the price of top hogs at the Farmer’s Hog Market in Plainview.—We had to be quick about it—this was a party line, after all— and besides that, a call to the hog market was long distance. Assorted envelopes and some letterhead from the Crazy Water Hotel in Mineral Wells— some exotic far-off place where my grandparents traveled for the mineral

baths—could be found in the desk drawers— we usually typed on the Crazy Water paper, our work illuminated by a desk lamp with a flexible neck. Work on words was painstaking in a snail’s pace snik, snik, snik, snik rattle of striking keys. The big clues that this was granddad’s corner were the plaques and slogans displayed on the walls surrounding the desk. They left little doubt that he was a fisherman—not that assorted adventures at Buffalo Lake hadn’t told us that many times over.

Grandad was not one to fish on a small scale. He lined a chunk of the Buffalo Lake shoreline with rods stuffed into conduit holders, his hooks baited with a homemade concoction of cottonseed cake and other secret ingredients that he called “crab bite.” He was happy to fish for catfish and carp. His desk wall plaques proffered pithy piscatorial reality. One that was and is highly pertinent, and that I still recite regularly to remind folks there’s no harm or foul in going fishing… “God does not

Whiteface linebackers and defensive backs work out the kinks and stretch out the hamstrings during athletic period warm-ups Monday since the Herd, now in Class 4A, is prohibited from spring football practice by UIL rule. BRAND/John Carson

Reclassification alters spring routine

By John Carson BRAND Managing Editor

As the middle of May approaches and the end of the school year draws near, some cannot shake a small gnawing feeling that something is missing. For those, there is no need to research online about acid reflux or worry that long-dormant ulcer has decided the flare up. The uneasy feeling in the pit of the stomach is not the result of a physical ailment, but there because something is actually missing from the usual spring events and happenings – football. For the first time since Don DeLozier took the reins as Hostile Herd head coach in 2003, the Whitefaces are not permitted to conduct spring football practice. For as long as most can recall, as a member of one of the two largest UIL classifications, Hereford High football had the option of conducting spring practice in exchange for opening preseason drills a week later in August. During his tenure at the helm, DeLozier has opted for spring practice in all but one year. However, a decision was not an option this year after UIL re-classification dropped HHS from Class 5A to 4A – and subsequently out of the state’s two largest classifications. Per UIL rules, only schools in Classes 6A and 5A have the option of conducting spring football practice. “It’s been different,” De-

With no contact and no equipment allowed in athletic periods, much of the work undertaken is on agility and skills – such as working on timing in the passing game. BRAND/John Carson Lozier said. “We’ve been trying to get a feel on what we have moving forward and working on skills. But it’s been difficult.” Seeing what is on the range for the upcoming season is one of the top two reasons the coach preferred spring practice. From a more practical standpoint, getting 18 practices in the spring in exchange for an extra week in early August gets the nod because it allows for continued development of key units. “One of the biggest questions answered in the spring is the lines – offensive and defensive,” DeLozier said. “You can’t see a lot of what they can do in

just skill work. You have to have contact. “Spring is always a time

that helps develop your line situations.” While there is technically no spring football practice and certainly no head-banging taking place, the Whitefaces are not twiddling their hooves. Each school day consists of an athletic period during which the football players available convene for workouts on the playbook and playing field. Although allowed by UIL rule, the periods pertaining to football are strictly regulated with there being no contact and players not allowed to wear any equipment – including helmets and shoulder pads. “We have the ability to do lots of skill work [during the athletic period],” DeLozier said. “We do a lot of agility work, getting off the ball and passing drills.” Normally during this week of May, spring football practice was coming to a close and the annual Maroon vs. White intrasquad game was set for this

Short of necessary contact for line develop, Hostile Herd head bull Don DeLozier is using daily athletic periods as a de facto spring practice since prohibited now by UIL rules as a Class 4A school. BRAND/John Carson Thursday. So that feeling something was missing this spring was not unfounded, and even comes with its own chaser. For those needing a bit of a spring gridiron fix, the Whitefaces will be hosting a pair of 7-on-7 competitions during the next week. Teams from Muleshoe and Friona highs come to town Thursday for a 6 p.m.

tournament at the Hereford Junior High field. There is another 7-on-7 tournament scheduled for Tuesday. With no spring practice, the Hostile Herd will open preseason practice on Monday, Aug 6. The season opens Friday, Aug. 31 when the Whitefaces host Caprock for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Whiteface head coach Don DeLozier keeps a watchful eye as offensive and defensive linemen run the ropes to quicken feet and improve agility during Monday’s daily athletic period in the school day. BRAND/John Carson

Nazarene Family Church You are invited this Sunday to see the illustrated sermon. “My Heart, Christ’s Home” is the life-changing story dramatizing how Christ longs to live in our hearts, clean up our lives, fellowship with us, teach us His Word and make our lives useful for the kingdom. When we invite him to live in our lives, he goes with us, room by room, to clean, restore and establish our lives according to His plan, His design. My heart, Christ’s home also helps us understand the difference of Christ in our lives and Christ being the owner of our lives. The difference between Christ being our savior and Christ being our Lord. We can each transfer the title of our house to Christ and He be the owner of our lives. We call the difference Christ makes when we are sanctified. The actors of the play are Tyler Wilburn and Riley Tessneer, with Pastor Ted narrating.
