Karnes County Judge Barbara Shaw presides at a recent meeting of Commissioners Court. Shaw declined to comment on the legality of recent move of local courts to the Karnes County Offices on the Square but said a legal opinion on the topic would be read aloud during the March 12 meeting. By Joe Baker Countywide staff

KARNES CITY – According to Karnes County Judge Barbara Shaw, Commissioners Court has moved to a new location. However, questions have come up regarding whether or not moving the court was legal. An agenda was posted last week for a meeting of Karnes County Commissioners Court showing the site of the meeting as the Karnes County Offices on the Square, but whether or not moving the court’s regular meetings to a new location is legal is a question that no local official has yet been willing to answer. According to state law, changing the location where Commissioners Court meets requires a vote by the court to do so, but minutes from previous meetings show that Karnes County’s Commissioners Court has not yet voted to move the court, probate court, county court and juvenile court from their current locations at the juvenile probation building to the Karnes County Offices on the Square. The Karnes Countywide reached out to County Judge Barbara Shaw on March 1, asking if she believed the courts could legally be moved without action by Commissioners Court.

or some, the rifle represents the soul of a man and is an emblem of masculine strength and the warrior ethos. From the soldierly daydreams of boyhood playgrounds, to the bitter realities of men waging war on savage battlefields, it is the rifle that remains the heart and soul object of many warrior hearts. Iraq War veteran and Hobson resident Travis Pollok has so far lived his life devoted to the way of the gun and has much experience in the different uses of a rifle - hunting, sport/recreation shooting and warfare. Pollok, 32, grew up in Falls City and was given his first .22 rifle at 10-years-old; he has maintained his passion for firearms ever since. His deep interest in gun weaponry led to a desire to serve in the military in a

time of war. Pollok joined the Marine Corps in 2002 and served two tours of duty in Iraq as an infantry rifleman. During his second combat tour in November of 2004, Pollok was seriously wounded by enemy gunfire during the fierce fighting of the Second Battle of Fallujah. After extensive surgeries and physical rehabilitation, Pollok recovered from his wounds and eventually used his VA benefits to attend gunsmithing school at the Colorado School of Trades, in order to further his knowledge in the details of modern firearms. Upon graduating from the trade school in December of 2009, Pollok obtained his federal firearms license from the ATF and eventually started his Texas Custom Rifles business in Hobson. “I’ve always loved building things (See Custom rifles, Page 7A)

Funds needed for new tanker truck By Joe Baker

Countywide staff

KARNES COUNTY – Karnes County volunteer fire departments are working together on a project with energy companies engaged in the development of the Eagle Ford Shale play. The departments plan to raise funds for a new 3,000-gallon water tanker truck to be used in response to fires and other emergencies across all of Karnes County. Karnes City Volunteer Fire Department Chief Charlie Malik said local volunteer fire departments are continuing to work with these companies and the dream is beginning to come to reality. “During our banquet on February 24, Universal Pressure Pumping employees were on hand to present the first contribution to the project in the amount of $25,000. Following their donation, David Martin Phillip came up and presented a check for our first local donation in the amount of $1,000. Before the night was over we received local donations totaling nearly $6,000.” Malik explained that energy companies have pledged to raise $150,000 and local fire departments agreed to raise the remainder of the funds needed, with a projected cost for the truck being approximately $225,000. “The truck will be a 3,000-gallon water transport truck that will be used to supply water to the rural areas of Karnes County where water is not as readily available as in the cities where we have fire hydrants,” Malik said. “The truck will be operated by the Karnes City Volunteer Fire Department and will be available to all the fire departments in the county when needed. We are working with the chief (See Tanker truck, Page 16A)

Moving courts (Continued from 1A)

“I will be sharing a legal opinion to address any concerns on March 12,” Shaw responded. “Commissioners Court will be at Offices on the Square on March 12.” In response to an email sent several days later referencing state law regarding moving local courts, Shaw still was still unwilling to answer the question of whether or not the move was legal. “As usual, you are obsessed with anything I say or do,” Shaw said. “Sometimes to the point I am leery of you and the odd things you choose to obsess over. I have told you and have explained to you that I have a legal opinion to read in Commissioners Court. If you choose to continue to feel that the court has done something wrong or illegally, I strongly suggest you file a complaint with the 81st Judicial District DA’s office.” The Karnes Countywide reached out last week to County Attorney Herb Hancock, District Attorney Rene Pena and Ross Fischer, a San Antonio attorney who works as a consultant for Commissioners Court, for comment regarding whether the move was in compliance with state law, but email and phone messages left have not yet been returned by any of the three attorneys. David Brooks, an Austin attorney who specializes

in administrative law, was willing to comment. “The long and short of it is that, whatever the county does with regard to where they are going to meet, that action has to be taken by the entire court,” Brooks said. Brooks is the author of Texas Practice Series, Volume 35, County and Special District Law, a book considered by many practicing attorneys to be the definitive reference on the area of law that regulates the practices of local courts. “They have to be at a meeting that is properly called and noticed,” Brooks explained. “There has to be a meeting, and it has to be approved by a majority of those at a meeting where there is a quorum. The county judge does not have any authority on his or her own to meet someplace else.” The Karnes Countywide reached out to the other four members of the court, and County Commissioners Shelby Dupnik and Tracey Schendel said they are not opposed to moving the meetings of Commissioners Court to the Karnes County Offices on the Square. Commissioner Schendel said he wasn’t notified that the court would be moving. “They haven’t told me anything,” Schendel said. “I have a doctor’s appointment,ß and I’m not going to be able to

of South Texas, so I applaud the efforts of the oil and natural gas industry to create STEER,” says Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff. “As shale exploration continues, I know STEER will play a vital role in making sure communities have open lines of communication with their legislators and the oil and gas companies.” STEER was founded by 11 of the largest oil and gas operators in the Eagle Ford Shale region in South Texas who recognized the need to maintain a cohesive and collaborative effort surrounding the exploration of the shale. The operators developed STEER to be the guiding liaison between the South Texas communities and the industry.

“STEER is going to be a tremendously helpful resource and advocate for South Texas as it relates to the Eagle Ford Shale,” says Karnes County Judge Barbara Najvar Shaw. “It is great to see STEER already present in the community. We look forward to their continued work in bridging communities with the oil and natural gas industry so that we can prosper together.” In an effort to remain close to the Eagle Force Shale region, STEER will be based in San Antonio and will office at the Pearl complex, joining tenants such as The Nature Conservancy and the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

make it to that meeting. I thought we were meeting at the same building where we always go. If I go and there is no one there, then I’ll know where to go.” Phone messages left for Commissioner James Rosales have not yet been returned. Commissioner Pete Jauer said he was choosing not to comment on whether or not the move was legal or whether or not he would have supported the move if such a motion had been made. There was an agenda item for discussion or action regarding moving the county judge’s office and the four local courts to the Karnes County Offices on the Square, but the discussion in the Jan. 31 meeting focused on moving the county judge’s office and resulting displacement of the extension service office. Commissioner Jauer made a motion related to

the item, stating, “I make a motion to move the county judge and staff from this building over to the annex building on West Calvert Avenue.” Jauer’s motion passed on a 4-1 vote with Commissioner Rosales casting the only vote against the motion. A similar situation came about in May of 2011 when Shaw requested moving the court due to what she described as unacceptable bat guano odors in the county courtroom. The move at that time was narrowly approved by the court on a 3-2 vote. Commissioner Jauer, who initially expressed opposition to moving the court, changed his mind when it came down to a vote. The vote passed with County Judge Barbara Shaw, Commissioners Tracey Schendel and Pete Jauer voting in favor while Commissioners James Rosales and Carl Hummel voting against moving the court.

Kudzu and healthcare

Work of state budget writers continues AUSTIN — Movement toward passing a state budget for the 2014-2015 fiscal biennium continued in committees of both chambers of the Texas Legislature last week. After two months of hearings, the Senate Finance Committee on March 7 approved workshop recommendations for a two-year budget of about $90 billion, paving the way to a final committee vote before moving to the full Senate for consideration. On March 8, the House Committee on Appropriations absorbed information on Medicaid expansion pursuant to the federal Affordable Care Act, including a presentation showing the rise in Medicaid as percent of state resources, including during dry periods of slow or negative revenue growth, and briefs on similar issues in the states of Arizona and Maine. Appropriations Committee members also viewed slides from the state comptroller’s office about the Major

Events Trust Fund as a way to stimulate the economy through sports playoffs and other highprofile events. Members also looked at “major economic development programs” such as the Texas Enterprise Fund, the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, the Moving Image Industry Incentive Program and the Major Events Trust Fund. Justice speech is given In his State of the Judiciary address to the Texas Legislature on March 6, the Honorable Wallace Jefferson, chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, said, “The question is not ‘How is the judiciary?’ We must ask instead whether our system of justice is working for the people it has promised to serve.” Nearly six million Texans qualify for legal aid and many are “forced to go it alone in our courts,” he said, adding that Texas ranks 48th in the nation in per capita funding for indigent defense, and suggested the Legislature can do more to increase access to legal services and attorney representation for poor and middle class citizens. Jefferson encouraged use of the rulemaking process to reduce the expense and delay of litigation. At the Legislature’s direction, he said, the Supreme Court recently adopted rules to simplify proceedings in cases involving claims for monetary relief of less than $100,000. “Discovery is limited; the cases are expedited. Now, a case that is vital to the success of a small business owner can actually be tried, to a verdict. A remedy for a legal injury, even for a litigant who cannot afford to pay a lawyer $500 an hour.” Jefferson noted that Texas courts are making progress in overturning wrongful convictions with DNA or other means and exonerating innocent people. He praised legislation offered by Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, and Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon, D-San Antonio, to create an exoneration commission. Jefferson also praised: - Increases in electronic filing of court papers. - Efforts to keep youths out of court and in school.

- Guardianship of elders who are at risk of abuse. Revenue remains healthy State Comptroller Susan Combs on March 6 reported state sales tax revenue in February was $2.08 billion, up 3.7 percent compared to February 2012. “Sales tax revenues continue to grow, but at a more moderate pace compared to recent months,” Combs said in an agency news release. “The latest increase was led by receipts from the construction and restaurant sectors. Collections from other major sectors such as oil and natural gasrelated businesses and manufacturing remain at high levels.” Combs’ office will send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts their March local sales tax allocations totaling $531.3 million, up 12.2 percent compared to March 2012. State jobs report arrives Texas employers continued to expand their payrolls in January with the addition of 10,400 total nonfarm jobs for a total of 310,900 jobs added over the year, the Texas Workforce Commission reported March 8. After declining for six consecutive months, the unemployment rate in Texas rose slightly in January to 6.3 percent and was down ninetenths of a percentage point over the year. The nation’s January unemployment rate, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, stood at 7.9 percent. “The Texas economy continues to add jobs and create opportunity, with growth in all 11 major industries over the last year,” said Texas Workforce Commission Chairman Andres Alcantar. Bill filing deadline passes March 8, the 60th day of the 140-day regular session of the Texas Legislature, was the deadline for lawmakers to file bills and proposed amendments to the state constitution, but local and emergency bills still may be filed.

Karnes City Chamber Chatter By Cathy Passmore

First of all many thanks to all of our Karnes City Community members and guests for joining us at our Annual Banquet this year. The theme, Bright Lights/ Big City brought a wonderful crowd to all of the happenings once the doors were opened at the Panna Maria Hall at 6 p.m. Much of the excitement was certainly due to the music played and sung by Cool Freddie & The Crew who kept our toes tapping and feet dancing to the beat of a variety of songs. Along with that, we were delighted that Partners Barbecue brought such delicious food to be served as dinner. Shortly after, all who chose to do so, had time to review and bid on the Silent Auction items. Thank you so much to those who donated those many and varied auction items.

of the annual highlights of our banquet is naming and announcing the members of our community who have been selected as “Citizen of the Year”, “Business of the Year”, and “Organization of the Year”. The contributions that each of these bring to providing and keeping a grand, reliable, and respected community is undeniable. In case you missed it those who received those awards were: Dennis Mika as “Citizen of the Year”, Jay’s Pharmacy as “Business of the Year”, and the Karnes County Historical Society as “Organization of the Year”. The key criteria for these awards has always been to honor those who make lots of effort to enhance the well being of the whole community that we all live in and share their efforts and talents to keep it happening.

So, once again we And, of course one thank all of you who

Baffled by bread Eating Up by Amelia Simmons If you have walked through the bread aisle recently, you will have noticed that what used to be a few shelves of loaves is now a full length aisle of cellophane wrapped confusion. To choose the best, the healthiest loaf, requires concentration, patience and reading glasses. With catch phrases like “cracked wheat”, “stone ground”, “whole grain” and “fiber rich”, it’s hard to tell what is what. The truth is that some loaves that have healthy sounding names are loaded with fructose and are nutritional disasters, while others with hohum names are terrific. Take the example of the widely used industry standard: the whole grain stamp. You’d think that was something you could rely on; the truth is the label whole grain doesn’t mean much nowadays. Here’s why. The USDA definition of a whole grain is that the both the starch (on the inside, in the kernel) and the husk or bran (on the outside) must both be present. But take that good whole grain and pulverize it and add sugar and a multitude of other flavoring agents and preservatives, and you can still call it whole grain, even though you have destroyed its nutritional value. To be of value, the whole grain has to remain whole and not crushed or ground up. That’s why the most nutritionally useful breads are those baked with whole grains and seeds. Don’t be fooled either by a loaf that promises to

be full of fiber. The fiber that occurs naturally in the whole grain is what you want in your loaf, but what the industry giants put in is soluble fiber, often in the form of cilium. (You might find this little wonder in your over the counter laxatives too.) The trouble with soluble fiber is just that: it is gone before it can do any good in your arteries. Other forms of fiber could be cottonseed, pea or wheat fibers. As a general rule, look for short ingredient lists. Additional sweeteners, such as high fructose syrup are culprits in the struggle against obesity. Beware of added vitamins and minerals which replace whole grains, but which, like soluble fiber, contain no real nutrition. When you read the label, follow these simple guidelines. Whole wheat flour should be the first ingredient on the list and the only flour used, calories should be at or about 100 per slice, (more means you are eating one of the sweeteners listed above); fiber should be 2gm per slice; sodium should be 2gm or less per slice. There are some great loaves out there. Here are a few mentioned by dieticians. Aunt Millie’s Hearth Organic 100% whole wheat bread; Food for life 7 sprouted grains; Nature’s Own 100% whole wheat; Pepperidge Farm 100% natural whole wheat and Sara Lee, Hearty and Delicious 100% whole wheat. Or, make your own!

The recipe below comes from Germany where whole grain, dense and chewy breads are part of the culture. As always, I advocate home baking; not just because I know what goes into every loaf, but because it tastes so good.

Sprouted Wheat Bread 4 ½ cups stone ground whole wheat flour 1 package or 1 tblsp instant yeast 1 ½ cups warm water 2 tbsps brown sugar 2 tblsps vegetable oil 1 ½ tsp salt 2 tbsp cider vinegar 1 tbsp molasses 1/3 cup toasted wheat germ ¼ cup sesame seeds 2 tblps butter 1/3 cup wheat berries 1 cup water To sprout the berries, soak them overnight in the water. Drain, place the berries in a jar, cover and allow the berries to germinate for 2 days. The sprouts will grow to ¾ inch tall. Rinse the sprouts and drain. To make the bread, combine the yeast and ½ cup of the warm water and ½ tsp sugar. Let stand until frothy. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the water and sugar, the oil, salt, vinegar and molasses. Beat in the yeast mixture and then slowly add the flour, the wheat germ, sesame seeds and drained wheat berries. Mix well, and knead the dough (it will be stiff) for about 10 minutes, until it is elastic and no longer sticky. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and let it rise until doubled. Punch the dough down, form into loaves and place in a greased loaf pan. Cover the loaves and let them rise again for another hour. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 45 minutes. After baking, brush the loaves with melted butter and allow to cool before slicing.

Investing is never a bad idea, and I know that may seem like a lot of money to you at the moment. But my advice is to cash out the bonds, find a financial advisor with the heart of a teacher, and invest the money in growth stock mutual funds with a good fiveto 10-year track record. After that, get set up for auto-draft on your checking account and put at least $50 a month into your new mutual fund. That’s a much better plan! —Dave

Custom rifles (Continued from 1A)

with my hands,â€? said Pollok. “I’m kind of a perfectionist, so if something isn’t just right, I’ll do my best to make it better, or I’ll start over. When it’s something I’ve built for someone else, I want it to be absolutely perfect.â€? Texas Custom Rifles specializes in making custom bolt-action rifles to a customer’s specifications. Pollok takes pride in his rifle craftsmanship and creating a finished product that will excel in what it is designed for. “I do custom builds. Everything I do is specific to what a customer wants,â€? Pollok explains. “Right now, I’m working with boltaction type of rifles. I’ve built some for long-range hunting, long-range target shooting, varmint hunting‌My favorites are the more long-range rifles - heavy barrel, big stocks; big, powerful scopes.â€? Inside the shop of Texas Custom Rifles are the tools and machinery of the trade. Simple and sophisticated equipment and measuring devices are used to give the specific details of the types of rifles made. “I do two different styles of custom rifle. I do a full custom build, which is a match-grade action, using a matchgrade barrel; and then I do a semi-custom, which is a Remington 700 action, which is a factory available action, and I true it up. I true the receiver face, and I lap the lugs which makes all the surfaces perpendicular to each other.

said. “People murdered and killed each other over stuff way before guns were around. They did it with rocks, swords, bows and arrows‌it’s not the gun that’s the problem; it’s evil people.â€?

As a Marine and a citizen, Pollok believes in the importance in preserving and protecting the Constitution and taking its Second Amendment at face value.

Travis Pollok holds a custom rifle from his personal collection that he made for himself.

“I take what’s called a ‘barrel blank’. It basically has the shape and contour of the barrel itself, but I have to thread it and chamber it for a specific round.� Pollok explains the benefits and virtues of a custom rifle over a factory made rifle and the benefits of greater performance a custom rifle gives. “Those (production guns) are made on an assembly line, dozens or hundreds at a time, and the attention to detail just isn’t there,� he said “I work in increments of one-thousandth of an inch. When I measure something, I use a micrometer or caliper to measure within a thousandth of an inch. When you get that precise, the precision of the gun is that much

better; it shoots better, it shoots tighter groups, which makes you able to shoot at longer ranges. You can have confidence of being able to shoot a custom-built gun at a longer range because you know it shoots tighter than something you buy off the shelf.� In recent months, guns have become an emotional and controversial issue in the nation. In the present national debate on gun control and the current proposals on gun bans by certain politicians, Pollok expresses his belief on the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. “I think a lot of people that don’t think we should have guns don’t know guns; they don’t have an understanding of guns; they don’t have someone that taught

them how to use guns. So there’s fear, because a lot of politicians spread fear. They say, ‘Oh this gun is going to kill you’‌like it’s an animated object that is going to jump up on its own and shoot you. It’s the people using guns the wrong way, not the gun itself.â€? The personal and civil responsibilities of gun

owners, and protecting expanding the rights of those law-abiding gun owners, is what needs to be the focus of the gun debate, according to Pollok. Pollok believes the real issue lies in the evil condition of the heart of certain people, not the gun itself. “Outlawing guns isn’t going to solve crimes,� he

“It was a right,� said Pollok of the Second Amendment. “It’s not like a driver’s license or some other privilege that the state gives you. It’s written in the Constitution when they founded this country. It is our right, a right to bear arms to protect ourselves from all enemies, foreign and domestic.� Prices for Texas custom rifles typically range between $2,500 and $3,500, sometimes higher depending on the detail involved.

Choate Baptist Church: The Gospel at Work In Jeremiah 23:16, 21 we read that not all prophets are sent: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied.’”

Fully surrendered to Christ, Paul was a “new creation”. This motivated him to willingly follow Christ and His Word. He saw himself as a bond slave under Christ’s orders. Paul received the revelation that Christ had set him apart and given him a Paul knew he was mission: to be an apos- “called”.

with Christ’s authority. The true work of God in any human comes only after separation, but we cannot separate ourselves from the world. Each of us has to completely abandon ourselves to Christ. Then, and only then, can He separate us from all that opposes Him.

Look at the “Christians” around you, and you will discover two groups. One group will rub you the wrong way by boasting of their good deeds as proof of their spirituality, yet they are not living the Christian life. No one likes listening to Many “Christians” them. The other group are narrow-minded and fills you with admiracantankerous because tion. You perceive their they have been trying to give things up instead of giving them to Christ.

“The harder I work the more behind I get!” I’ve heard many folks express this frustration as they exhaust themselves with life’s endless tasks. Many things tire us: Tending large families of young children, chasing cattle that jump fences, earning money to pay the rent, and a multitude of other never-ending tasks. Perhaps the most tiring endeavor of all, however, is man’s life-long pursuit to earn God’s favor. Most of the world’s religions claim to offer salvation in exchange for never ending dedication to their works of penance. Most people never find relief from what proves to be a losing battle. New Year’s resolutions are broken within hours, selfish instincts rear their ugly heads at the most inappropriate moments, and those evil thoughts we despise, suggest them-

selves to our minds through every cunning communication media known to man. The Bible describes this predicament of fallen man. “But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt (Isaiah 57:20).” Man has devised evil religious systems to capitalize on man’s inability to control his own evil. These systems offer forgiveness in exchange for money, service, or obedience. Their coffers are full of gold and silver fleeced from men seeking to buy salvation even though God says we can’t be “redeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold (1 Peter 1:18).” But there’s good news! God has provided a costly salvation free of charge! Jesus Christ paid it all. He sacrificed his own blood on Calvary’s cross to

Are you tired? Do you need rest from your futile attempts to earn salvation? Then stop trying to buy salvation from man’s religious systems. Rather, call out directly to God the Son -- Christ Jesus, the Lord! He says, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out (John 6:37).”

Ag Day 2013: Tribute to farmers and ranchers By: James B. Douglass, USDAFarm Service Agency

I speak for the people working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. We all are proud to be partners with the men and women who farm and ranch in Texas. Agriculture is an honorable profession and we are honored to do our part to help. We salute you on Ag Day, March 19. “ G e n e r a t i o n s Nourishing Generations” is the theme for this year’s Ag Day. Our country’s farmers and ranchers work hard to provide food and clothing for our country and the world. Their dedication is an inspiration to us and to the next generation of farmers and ranchers. Without them, we would not have the abundant food supply, the fiber, and the fuel we depend on daily. Agriculture involves sacrifice. As a youngster on the farm, the most immediate sacrifice noticed is

sleep. Getting up early and working hard until sundown is not something that always comes easy…it usually has to be learned…from your parents or your grandparents. That sacrifice continues as you grow. Or if you start to farm later in life, you encounter it immediately when you take charge of your operation… long, hard hours, dripping sweat in the soil and taking a risk when needed to doctor an animal, weld an implement or finance next year’s planting. According to recent USDA studies, the agricultural sector right now remains a bright spot in terms of economic stability and growth and there is a strong demand for U.S. agricultural products. Generation after generation of agricultural producers in Texas are getting up early every day to keep this sector of the economy healthy, providing jobs and income for

both rural and urban families and communities. In 1960 each U.S. farmer provided food for about 25 people. Today, each U.S. farmer feeds more than 144 people, an increase of over 500%. Research and new technologies have boosted production, but someone still has to go outdoors and make things grow. Without regard for the wind, rain, snow, freeze, fire and drought… the farmer and the ranchers can be found tending the crops, flock or herd, and doing it well. Even with last season’s severe weather and natural disasters, American farmers and ranchers have still prevailed to get the food and fuel to market. Let’s thank these men and women for a job well done. Agriculture is America’s number one export, and critical to sustaining a healthy economy. In our state alone, one out of every seven working Texans is employed

in an agriculture-related job. During 2011, Texas ranked number one in the nation for cotton, hides and skins and beef and veal exports. According to the most recent Census of Agriculture, Texas has more than 130 million acres dedicated to agricultural production. Frankly, it's easy to take agriculture for granted in America. Our food is readily accessible and very safe. For this, we're unbelievably fortunate, but that doesn't mean we don't have an obligation to recognize who makes it possible. This National Ag Day on March 19 is a good time to reflect - and be grateful for - American agriculture. To find more Ag Day information and events, visit the sponsoring Agricultural Council of America at www.agday. org.

Sleep: Can you do without it? By: Janet M. Pollard, MPH, AgriLife Extension Associate

Most of us might think we can do without sleep – or at least that we can adapt to having less of it. Our 24/7 society seems to demand more of us, with round-the-clock business and entertainment. A single night spent out on the town or surfing the internet may not be detrimental, but added up over time, the consequences of being sleep deprived are numerous and detrimental…while the benefits of sleep can be the difference in health, performance, and quality of life. Though sleep is typically viewed as a time the body shuts down and rests, according to the National Sleep Foundation, it is actually a dynamic activity in its own right that is as essential to good health as diet and exercise, and as necessary as food and water. Insufficient sleep is directly linked to poor health. Research suggests that insufficient sleep increases the risk for weight gain and obesity; diabetes; high blood pressure; heart disease; stroke; depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders; decreased nervous system First Assembly of God 181 Bypass S. at Jauer Karnes City 780-2891

performance; decreased endocrine system performance; decreased immune system performance; and premature death. Insufficient sleep contributes significantly to safety issues, such as driving accidents, medical errors, and impaired job performance, which can result in accidents and injuries. Insufficient sleep affects virtually every aspect of day-to-day life, including mood, mental alertness, memory, cognitive performance, energy level, and physical performance. As we sleep, the brain and body work toward restoration of both the brain and body, while keeping our body chemicals (e.g., hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.) in balance. We sleep in cycles of non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, alternating between the two throughout the night. Although there is still much to be learned about what happens as we sleep, during NREM sleep we know that growth hormones are released, which stimulate tissue growth and muscle repair. There are also increased blood levels of substances that activate

KENEDY – The Texas Farm Service Agency (FSA) suggests that we all take a moment in these turbulent fiscal times to celebrate agriculture and honor our hard-working farmers and ranchers in Texas. Grady Kelley, Karnes County Executive Director announces that March 19 is National Ag Day and this year’s theme is “Generations Nourishing Generations”. “According to recent USDA studies, the agricultural sector right now remains a bright spot in terms of economic stability and growth and there is a strong demand for U.S. agricultural products,” said Kelley. “Generation after generation of agricultural producers in Texas are getting up early every day to provide the food, fiber and fuel that feed and clothe Americans and others around the world.” Kelley further notes, “As research advances, the future may be even

ing the sleep cycle; however, interrupted sleep can adversely affect this normal decline, leading to hypertension and cardiovascular problems. • Diabetes – Insufficient sleep also impairs the body’s ability to use insulin, which can lead to the onset of diabetes. According to the National Sleep Foundation, more and more scientific studies are showing correlations between poor and insufficient sleep and disease. The one-third of our lives that we spend sleeping, far from being unproductive, plays a direct role in how full, energetic, and successful the other twothirds of our lives can be. If sleep is cut short, the body doesn’t have time to complete all of the phases needed for muscle repair, memory consolidation, and release of hormones regulating growth and appetite. Then we wake up less prepared to concentrate, make decisions, or engage fully in school, work, social, and relational activities.

brighter. New uses for ag products are being found to utilize natural ingredients for life-saving medicines and supply the critical commodities required in a long list of manufacturing sectors.” Major commodities produced in Karnes County include corn, grain sorghum, cotton, hay, and livestock. Texas agricultural production contributed more than $7.5 billion in export revenues during 2011. Today each American farmer produces enough food to feed more than 144 people, a dramatic increase from the 25 people a farmer sustained in 1960. These increased efficiencies demonstrate that American Agriculture is producing more – and doing it better than ever before.   Ad Day is a project of he Agriculture Council of America.

the immune system, raising the possibility that sleep helps to defend the body against infection. During REM sleep, it seems that the mind is restored in part by clearing out irrelevant information, but it also facilitates learning and memory. This may be why students who get a good night’s sleep (with uninterrupted REM sleep) fare better than students who stay up all night studying. Because our bodies are designed to regulate blood pressure, body temperature, and the release of hormones in the appropriate amounts and at the appropriate times, when we go without sleep, this balance can be interrupted, resulting in negative health consequences. In addition to affecting our immune system, sleep deprivation also puts us at risk for: • Weight gain and obesity – With sleep deprivation, there is an increase in the hormones responsible for the feelings of hunger and a decrease in the hormones that suppress hunger. • High blood pressure and heart disease – Blood pressure usually falls dur-

6th grade Math classes study circumference

By Mrs. Gaskamp Circles, circles everywhere. The 6th grade math classes participated in a math lab on Tuesday to explore the concept of circumference. The students reviewed the parts of a circle and formulas for circumference by taking notes on a foam circle. The students then rotated around the gym to different stations to measure the diameter or radius of the object and then calculate the circumference. The students had a fun time with the hands on experience over a tough topic that will be on the STAAR test. .

8th grade Science classes study Phases of the Moon By Coach Maldonado

The 8th grade students were challenged to come up with a presentation project of the phases of the moon. They had the freedom to present in any way. There were some drawing and 3-D models, but the class favorites were the presentations done with cupcakes and cookies. The kids were excited to get started and were giving me status updates all week. They presented on Friday and I was impressed by how much effort they put into it. By the end of the presentations the students and I were full of sugar and knowledge. Great job 8th grade. Here are a few of the projects.

Karnes City Craft Club News By Reporter Pat Hemby

The Karnes City Craft Club held its meeting at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Karnes City on Feb. 14. The meeting was called to order by President Shirley Frazier and the members recited the pledge and the Lord’s Prayer. The minutes were read and the treasurer gave her report. The birthdays for February were Maxie McNally, Diane Maitland and Joyce Soefje. We were so pleased that Joyce Soefje has become a member of the club. Birthday cards had been sent to them and the group sang the birthday song. We also were pleased to have Janice Green as a visitor. Everyone received an attractive new year book made by Beverly Davis. The business meeting was then adjourned.

The door prize was won by Jo Ann Kroll and the hostess gift was won by Beverly Henke. They each received a red ceramic heart shaped bowl appropriate to use for a Valentine’s decoration. The hostesses for the day were Treva Fossler, Melba Wolff, and Alice Poore. The craft they presented was making a paper gift bag from construction paper. It was folded it in the shape of a bag and then decorated with hearts, flowers, and a label that said “Love” and “Happy Valentines.” After crafts everyone enjoyed refreshments. The next meeting will be March 14 at 2 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Karnes City. The hostesses will be Pat Hemby, Myra Patton, and Joan Smith.

NOTICE OF INTENT TO RECLAIM STOELTJE ABANDONED MINE LAND PROJECT KARNES COUNTY, TEXAS The Railroad Commission of Texas is intending to reclaim the Stoeltje abandoned uranium mine, located approximately 2.5 miles south of Falls City, Texas, in Karnes County on Karnes County Road 207 approximately 2,000 feet west of its intersection with Karnes County Road 211. The abandoned mine reclamation project consists of a 25-acre pit, and 52 acres of mine spoil. The pit highwalls are unstable and are approximately 40 feet in height. The abandoned pit impounds water to a depth of 120 feet. Reclamation project work will be accomplished under the Texas Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Reclamation Program, which is administered by the Railroad Commission of Texas. Reclamation plans include pumping the pit water into an unnamed tributary of Cow Creek, salvaging topsoil, excavating and burying radioactive spoil, partially backfilling and contouring the abandoned pit and contouring the spoil piles. Unsuitable spoil materials will be deposited and buried in the pit. The highwall and spoil pile will be reduced to 14% slopes or flatter. After grading is completed the site will be topsoiled, fertilized and seeded with grasses. The reclaimed pit will result in an impoundment that will collect seasonal rainfall runoff. The Commission’s AML Reclamation Program has reclaimed seventeen of the twenty abandoned mines on the South Texas Abandoned Uranium Mine Inventory. Initiation and scheduling of mine reclamation projects are dependent on several factors including: landowner participation, environmental permitting and funding availability. Interested persons may request detailed information regarding the proposed reclamation and are invited to comment on the Commission’s AML Reclamation project selection process or on the possible impact this proposed project could have on the local area or community. Comments must be received at the address listed below by April 12, 2013. John E. Caudle, P.E., Director Surface Mining and Reclamation Division Railroad Commission of Texas P.O.
