Stanton Learning Center’s spotlight for recognition before the HISD Board of Trustees at the Sept. 24 meeting focused on how students are expanding their overall educational horizons while others are getting a decided break on their school year. Thanks to a hiring that brought a teacher for the deal to Stanton, HISD no longer has to bus its deaf students to Amarillo for daily instruction. To further incorporate the new students into the school community, teachers conduct daily sign language lessons with all students to enhance communication between the hearing and non-hearing students.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second in a series taking a more indepth look at a proposed bond issue Hereford Independent School District has called for the Nov. 6 general election. This installment looks at the specific components of the bond.) Honing in on items that need to be addressed and also have a chance of passing the muster of a public vote is a key reason why the Hereford Independent School District (HISD) Board of Trustees called a $22.4 million bond proposal. The measure includes two of the four components from a failed 2017 bond with $16.7 million to go for safety and security upgrades at six campuses and the remaining $5.7 million for construction of a new Whiteface Stadium fieldhouse other athletics-related items. However, unlike its eventually doomed predecessor, the proposal is much more specific in noting where bond funds would be distributed. Of the six campuses on the safety-and-security upgrade list, the highest individual allocation is almost $5.5 million for Hereford Junior High (HJH) and Hereford Preparatory Academy (HPA) with the lowest amount ($370,000) allocated for West Central Elementary. Work at Northwest Elementary is set at nearly $3.9 million, while Bluebonnet Elementary could see $3.5 million worth of upgrades. Aikman Elementary and Hereford High School (HHS) are the final two PLEASE SEE BOND | 10

Calendar, bids part of routine meeting By John Carson BRAND Managing Editor


Safety, security a bigger issue

In illustration of why government does not hold much excitement for many people, the Deaf Smith County Commissioners Court dealt with predominantly mundane business during its regular meeting Monday. Although there was discussion over the court’s recently adopted tractor lease plan, the rest of the business on the 10-item agenda was routine. Among the most notable of the routine items was approval of a county holiday calendar for 2018-19. Sticking with a plan they know works, commissioners approved a calendar identical to that of previous years with county employees getting a total of 14 holidays during the calendar year.

In addition to single holidays for New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day and Veteran’s Day, employees will get two days off each at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as having a pair of floating holidays that can be taken at the employee’s discretion. “I know we don’t pay the best, but this is one of the perks we can give,” Deaf Smith County Judge D.J. Wagner said in recommending calendar approval. Commissioners also agreed to advertise for bids on a trio of vehicles. Two are an annual vehicle purchase of patrol units for Deaf Smith County Sheriff’s Office, while the other is vehicle to be used in the District Attorney’s office. PLEASE SEE COUNTY | 4

In the rear -view The adage goes a picture is worth 1,000 words, and it was proved in spades Thursday during the District 3-4A Cross Country Meet in Lubbock. Although Canyon ended up winning the district team title, all the Lady Eagles saw of Hereford’s Sabbatha Taylor was her back as the senior topped the entire Canyon team and district field to break the tape in 11:39.50 for her third district championship in four years.

The Hereford BRAND was established in February 1901

Bud Eades, 97, formally of Amarillo, died peacefully Sunday evening, Oct. 7, 2018, just three days before his 98th birthday. Family had been at his side throughout the week. Family will gather for a celebration of life service at Schooler Funeral Home on Monday, Oct. 15 from 6-7 p.m.  All friends are encouraged to attend. A graveside service will be held 10 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 16 in Llano Cemetery. He will be laid to rest beside his beloved Helen. Bud was born Oct. 10, 1920 in Dallas, to William C. and Ida Katherine Eades. He lived in the Dallas area and graduated from Seagoville High School in 1938. He was inducted into the U.S. Army in 1942. He volunteered for the Army Air Corps and completed his pilot training at Blackland Army Air Field in Waco, then was assigned to Concho Army Air Field in San Angelo, where he flew planes for bombardier training until the end of World War II. He completed his military service in Japan with the occupation army. Upon his return to civilian life in 1947, he worked for the state board of insurance, which led to more than 50 years in the property and casualty insurance business in the Texas Panhandle. He owned his own agency and merged with Empire Insurance Agency, where he was managing partner in 1953. In 1954, he married Helen Virginia Young. Both became active in the civic community. Bud was involved with the United Way, Exchange Club, and was a deacon at First Baptist Church. In 1970, the family moved to Hereford, where Bud was managing partner of Plains Insurance Agency. Again, the family became active in the community. Bud was president of Deaf Smith County

Chamber of Commerce, president of Hereford Kiwanis Club, lieutenant governor of Division 33 of Kiwanis, served on the State Bar of Texas District 13 Grievance Committee for three years, deacon, Sunday school teacher, and active with organizing the Hereford YMCA. In 1983, Bud was honored as Hereford Citizen of the Year. He served on the Hereford City Commission for 11 years. Bud and Helen returned to Amarillo in 1990. He served as teacher of a men’s Bible class at First Baptist Church and volunteered at Baptist St. Anthony Hospital, where he enjoyed manning the popcorn machine in the lobby and visiting with all the people that entered. Bud also volunteered with Meals on Wheels and the Ronald McDonald House. He served as president of the High Plains Kiwanis Club, where he was active in its flag project for 20 years. In 2013, Bud was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years, Helen.  Bud is survived by daughter Carol and husband Tony; sons Roger and wife Tammy, Wes and wife Jenn, and Brian and wife Jennifer; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.  The family wishes to express deep gratitude  to the staff at Heartis Retirement Center in Cleburne, which helped care for him so tenderly and expressed such affection for him each day.

Estevan R. Martinez 1946-2018

Dec. 26, 1946 to Jacinto Martinez and Mariana Reza Martinez in San Benito. The family moved to Hereford in 1958 when Estevan was 12 years old. He married the “love of his life,” Guadalupe Ramirez, on Oct. 14, 1962. Together they had five sons and two daughters. Estevan was a loving husband and father to his wife and family. He worked in the agricultural trucking industry all his life and his faith and family were everything to him. He especially loved to take his children hunting and four-wheeling, making sure they had plenty of time playing and working outdoors. He had a big heart and was outgoing, known for his sense of humor, and always willing to lend a hand to others. He and Guadalupe were at the center of the family holiday celebrations and held big outdoor PLEASE SEE OBITS | 3

Tip of the Day Tips for sharing the road with cyclists and pedestrians The country’s roadways are for all to enjoy. Tens of millions of cars take to the highways every day, but they’re not the only mode of transportation allowed on the road. Cyclists and pedestrians also make use of streets when sidewalks or biking paths are unavailable. Did you know that bicyclists accounted for 2.2 percent of all traffic deaths in the United States in 2016? In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says nearly 15 pedestrians per day lose their lives when struck by motor vehicles, and there were 5,376 pedestrian deaths in 2015. Although biking and walking are inherently safe activities for millions of people per year, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can all take steps to make roads safer for everyone. · Follow the rules of the road. Whether you’re riding a bike or driving a motor vehicle, the rules of the road are the same. That means heeding traffic signals, signage, right-ofway, speed limits, and much more. · Avoid alcohol use. Alcohol impairs motor skills, which are necessary to walk and operate cars and bicycles safely. Many accidents and

fatalities on the roads can be traced to alcohol consumption. Do not drink and drive or drink and ride. Pedestrians who need to walk heavily trafficked areas would be smart to limit their alcohol consumption as well. · Make yourself more visible. Pedestrians and cyclists can make themselves more visible to motorists in various ways. Wear bright-colored, reflective gear when walking or riding, and install reflective lights on bicycles. · Remain alert at all times when b e h i n d the wheel. Motorists should be focused on the road at all times, avoiding distractions such as smartphones and in-vehicle entertainment systems. Such devices can dramatically reduce motorists’ reaction times, greatly increasing the risk of accident. Slow down when cyclists, runners and other pedestrians are nearby. · Pass safely and give room. Do not pass too closely when driving near cyclists and pedestrians. Always yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Whether driving, riding a bicycle or walking, everyone should work together to share roads safely. For more information, visit www.nhtsa. gov.

long time.” Commissioners also unanimously approved the re-appointment of Charles Gill as the county’s representative on the Texas Panhandle Centers Board. Deaf Smith’s current voice on the board, Gill represents multiple counties on the nine-person panel that oversees behavioral and developmental training for more than 7,000 people annually in the region. Gill was re-appointed to a two-year term.

The polls at the courthouse on election day, Nov. 6, will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.


Precinct 2 Commissioner Jerry O’Connor inquired about the vehicles being on the state Buy Board in terms of getting the best deals. While they are, both Wagner and Sheriff J.

The vehicle for the DA’s office will be a mid-size SUV or pick-up that is replacing a 2007 modeal. “This purchase was already built into the 201819 budget,” Wagner said. “Half of the funding is coming from the DA’s office.” In other action, Precinct 4 Commissioner Dale Artho received approval to O'CONNOR purchase a packer.

Doug Cavin, left, presented West Central Elementary School assistant principal Dana Friel, right, the traditional big check for $10,000 from the Monsant0-funded America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program. Frield also trains faculty on the district technology and also wrote the grant. The funding will be used for HISD robotic programs at several schools. BRAND/John Carson

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TO DISCUSS HEREFORD ISD’s State Financial Accountability Rating Hereford ISD will hold a public meeting at 6:00 pm, October 22, 2018 in the Board Room, Hereford ISD Administration Building, 601 N 25 Mile Ave., Hereford, TX The purpose of this meeting is to discuss Hereford ISD’s rating on the state’s financial Accountability system.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS Before I get to a CHAPTER that I want to highlight, I need to remind you of instructions that Christ gave to his Apostles shortly before he ascended into heaven. In Matthew’s account of his final meeting with the Apostles, Christ told them that “ all authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. Matthew 26:18-20. Mark’s account (Mark 16:15-16) reads, And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned”. Please note the conjunction AND connecting belief and baptism with being saved. Luke’s account tells us what would be preached: “and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem”. Luke 24:47 Acts Chapter 2 is the account of the first gospel message preached to man after Christ had ascended to heaven. This occurred on the Day of Pentecost, a day when Jews from every nation were gathered in Jerusalem. On this day, the Holy Spirit gave the apostles power that Christ had promised them (Acts 1:4,8). Peter told them that Jesus of Nazareth had been attested by God to them by the miracles, wonders and signs that God did through Him, and they, through lawless hands had crucified Him and put Him to death. He went on to tell them that God had raised Him from the dead, and that all of the Apostles were witnesses of this. Acts 2:36-38: “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ”. Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the Apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do?’ Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. This short account has all of the elements that Christ had told his apostles to do: preach repentance and remission of sins, baptize in the name of Jesus, and those who believed and were baptized would be saved. Verse 41 says that those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. Verse 47 says “and the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved”. I hope you will take the time to read and study this 2nd chapter of Acts for yourself. The subject of baptism is important.

FFB Day of Service aids community From Staff Reports

First Financial Bank conducted its third annual company-wide Day of Service on Columbus Day, Oct. 8. First Financial partnered with local non-profit organizations to provide assistance and perform service projects in each of the communities it serves. In Hereford, a contingent of local First Financial employees brightened the day for those at King’s Manor with visits, conversations and sharing lunch. “The Day of Service started more than three years ago,” First Financial Hereford Regional president and CEO Mike Mauldin said. “We have never required our employees to participate, and every year, more than 80 percent of them volunteer for the benefit of others. “It is a great way for our employees to show their support for the community and help others.” With more than 800 employees participating company-wide, Day of Service initiatives took place in 30 locations across First Financial’s footprint.

Harriers mine district silver; boys, girls advance

From Staff Reports

LUBBOCK – There was no scouring the final results to see if anyone qualified individually when the District 3-4A Cross Country Meet was finished Thursday for Hereford Whitefaces and Lady Whitefaces. The reason was because individual qualifiers were essentially moot when the Herd qualified both teams for the Region 1 meet

with second-placed finishes for the boys and girls. In advancing both teams for the first time in recent memory, the Herd had each secure their respective No. 2 spots with ease. The Whitefaces finished with 52 points to end up 16 points ahead of bronze-medalist Levelland (68), which also advanced as a team. Meanwhile, the Lady Whitefaces (44) were 33 points in front

of the third-place Loboettes (77). Canyon won both district titles as the Eagles finished with 21 points and Lady Eagles with 20. The only thing that kept the Lady Eagles from a sweep of the top was Lady Whiteface reigning and two-time District 3-5A champion Sabbatha Taylor. The Lady Eagles saw only the back of the Hereford senior as Taylor claimed her third district title in four years by crossing

the line on the 2-mile course in 11:39.50 – nearly 13 seconds ahead of the nearest competitor. Lady Eagles then finished second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth to secure the team crown with two more coming in seventh and eighth. The Lady Whitefaces staked their claim to the silver with spots nine, 10 and 11 as Melanie Jacquez finished in 12:39.93, Ruby Trevino in 12:47.81 and Ma-

larie Dominguez in 13:03.33. Audrey Gibson closed out the Lady Herd scoring with a time of 13:10.21 to finish 13th. In her first appearance in more than a month due to injury, Katie McCathern finished 15th (13:34.40), while Alexia Alvarez rounded out the Lady Whiteface contingent in 19th at 14:06.87.

Rain puts damper on tennis finale

From Staff Reports

What was expected to be a big send-off for seniors and a quasi-pep rally into the postseason during the home finale for the Hereford Whiteface tennis team Thursday fizzled in misty weather conditions and never came to be. Ah, the best laid plans, what? Still, despite last-minute maneuvering to get the match because of playoff implications, dry courts were found at Randall High School, and the Herd stampeded Levelland, 181, to close the regular season. Moving to 19-7 overall and District 3-4A runnerup at 4-2, the Herd won their second straight, fifth in the last seven matches and 12th of the past 15. Of those three losses in the past 15, two came to No. 3 Canyon and the other to sixth-ranked Vernon for the No. 5 Whitefaces. “It was very sad – especially for this group of seniors – to not to get to finish at home,” Hereford coach Cody Crouch said. “The booster club had cooked and brought the bull out, so it was going to be a special night. “But there was drizzle all day in Hereford that wasn’t going to dry up.” A time crunch to the playoffs created the need to get the match in Thursday – rather than postponing until Saturday because Levelland and Brownfield had a get in a playoff match to determine the district’s third and fourth playoff seeds by Saturday.

With an admitted “very small window” open to get the match in, courts were secured at Randall. After making the trip, teams began play without much warm-up under an agreed pro-set format – one eight-win set – to get the match. Despite the unexpected road trip and little warmup, the Herd took control early with the boys and girls both sweeping with 8-3, 8-2, 8-2 wins, and mixed doubled coming out on top, 8-1. Tommy and Nicky Villalovos had some competition at the top of the singles chart with the former winning 8-4 at No. 1 and the latter 8-5 at No. 2. From there, No. 3 John Ferris (8-0), No. 4 Kevin Nguyen (8-1), No. 5 Luis Avila (8-0) and No. 6 Jacen Saenz (8-2) had little trouble completing the singles skunk. The winning continued for Lady Whiteface singles with No. 1 Victoria Betzen (8-1), No. 2 Aubrey Schueler (8-3), No. 3 Kamille Hicks (8-3), No. 4 Klarise Hill (8-2) and No. 5 Macy Warlick (8-4) all picking up victories. The lone loss in the match came at No. 6 girls singles where Liddy Flood fell, 5-8. As the District 3-4A No. 2 seed, the Herd hits the postseason trail Monday when they head to the Rebel Tennis Complex in Amarillo to face District 4-4A No. 3 seed Borger in the Bi-District round. The Whitefaces blanked the Bulldogs, 19-0, in an Aug. 28 match.


campuses on the list with projected costs of $1.96 million and $1.5 million, respectively. The biggest reason for the discrepancy in costs is the extent of safety and security work that is needed. For West Central, as HISD Superintendent Sheri Blankenship explained, less is needed because the school was renovated in 2007. Meanwhile, situations at other campuses – most notably HJH – will have entrances completely redesigned to increase security. Entrances of each of the designated schools will be secured using an identical design to what is being done in the renovation at Tierra Blanca Elementary. The redesign has a double entry door into the building from the outside, than another at the end of an entryway that leads directly into the school. When students are coming and going for the day, both sets of doors will be opened to allow ingress and egress. However, once school begins, the inner double door will be locked from outside entry – forcing anyone who enters the building to go into the main office before gaining access into the school proper. In addition, the entrance redesigns will also provide more windows for school office personnel to see when people are approaching and exiting the school area. Another concern – more as some campuses than others – will be securing additional entrances and doorways. While numbers at each school varies, they run as 13 additional doors beside the main entrance at HHS. However, officials have learned one stark fact about safety and security. “Safety and security is more than just locks on the doors and cameras on the wall,” Blankenship said. “Sometimes there are safety and security concerns structurally that cannot be seen.” She proceeded to give trustees photographic evidence from three campuses of structural issues needing attention. Blankenship and HISD architect Lenora Ask toured the schools and found cracks in foundations and

Cracks in several walls throughout Hereford Preparatory Academy have officials worried on safety issues with the structure. HISD photos walls at Bluebonnet and HPA, as well as safety and security issues with some of the design at Northwest. One photo from Bluebonnet showed a large hole in the upper part of a wall where cracked metal beams are visible and a cement block has reportedly fallen onto the floor. Although identified in the bond, the structural repairs at Bluebonnet could not wait for November when officials were informed in early August emergency repairs were needed so the school could safely open for the 2018-19 school year. The situation at Northwest is not failing structure, but parts of the structure. While esoteric when conceived and designed in the 20th century, walls in the school with a row of windows across the top presents modern-day safety hazards. Northwest also faces an emergency dilemma if a lockdown should be needed. A successful lockdown at the school is not a worry. Getting unlocked could be a different story because all of classroom doors require different keys. The school has no master key for classroom doors.
