Dinner for a Cause

A Musical Extravaganza Celebrating our Veterans Myrna Castillo is “proud to announce to the citizens of Keene and surrounding communities of a Dinner for a Cause with Musical Extravaganza in celebration of Veterans Day this coming Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Keene Senior Center 12 pm – 2pm.” Chaplain Phil Payne and Pastor Phil Robertson will give thoughts about veterans, there will be door prizes, and patriotic songs will focus on the sacrifices of our veterans for our freedoms. Musical entertainment will be provided by concert pianist Dr. Josias d’Trinidad, vocalists Elaine McDonald, John Read, Betty Huddleston, and flutist Austin Loignon. “With this,” Castillo says “I would like to solicit your kind and generous support by purchasing tickets of $10, $25, and $50 and/or $100 as your budget may allow. The $10 ticket will offset the cost

of the food and the rent of the venue. Those who would purchase the higher priced tickets will receive tax deductible receipts less $10 per person. Or you may purchase $10 tickets and give a separate donation for the cause with tax deductible receipts. Your names will be acknowledged in the program and on the screen during the event as our beloved sponsors.” Proceeds will go to the centerpiece projects of both organizations. The Vibrant Life Foundation is sponsoring the completion of the on-going church building in Bacolod City, Philippines and a major evangelistic crusade in April of 2013, also in the Philippines. The church building is in need of window installations, tile flooring and the addition of a fellowship hall. It is comprised of 45 mostly newly baptized members. The church building

is constructed to house 150 worshipers. The speaker for the evangelistic crusade will be Pastor Noel Frias who will pay his own travel, lodging and other related expenses. The funds will also enable 3 laymen pastors to lay the groundwork prior to the crusade and will be assisting in the crusade itself. Other expenses include study materials for the crusade, food, Bibles and related supplies. For the Keene Pioneer Heritage Foundation, it is the completion of the long-awaited project of the Memorial Monument, a mosaic memorial located at the Keene cemetery, which contains the names of the early pioneers and founding fathers of Keene. Included with these name will be engraved on the back and on the sides of the monument, the names of those brave men and women who are buried

in the cemetery, for their honorable deeds as Veterans of War. Castillo states that she is “Looking forward to seeing you November 11th at the Keene Senior Center and be a part of the fun, the celebration, and the blessing as we entertain you with good music, sumptuous food, door prizes and inspirational messages for a worthy and meritorious cause.” Tickets may be purchased through Myrna Castillo at the Vibrant Thrift Store (817-202-8200) or through John Read at the Read-Billingsley Real Estate Office (817-645-8785) both in Keene, Texas. “Seating is limited” says Castillo, “so we encourage you to purchase you tickets the earliest possible.” She would like to thank the public “for being our partners in this notable undertaking. God bless you!”


“Let’s Grow”

Owner, Tommy Kimbrow Encourages Prospective Gardeners to Think Outside the Crate! “Let’s Grow” owner, Tom Kimbrow shares his experiences with the Mittleider Gardening Method with gardeners coming from all over the Metroplex and as far away as Marble Falls. “Mittleider experimented for over 40 years, and we now have the benefit of all that experience in a proven method of high yield gardening, if you follow Mittleider’s simple rules and principles of gardening” says Kimbrow. Kimbrow hosted a “Dinner from the Garden” and lecture to a sold out crowd of serious gardening enthusiasts on Thursday (November 1st) evening. The event “Mittleider Gardening Secrets Revealed!” was held in the Fellowship Hall at the St. Mark United Methodist Church in Cleburne. The theme was to “learn how to grow large amounts of produce in a very small area”. It is a NO pesticides-NO herbicides gardening! This process is also known as ‘The Poor Man’s Hydroponic Method.” “Let’s Grow Stuff” manuals which outline and reveal the “Mittleider Gardening Secrets” were provided to all participants which were

captivated with the lecture, the power point presentation the “show-and-tell” and several give away gardening tools. Mr. Ben Oefinger, local master gardener, added his expertise to the seminar with his extensive knowledge of managing pests and plant diseases. His general advice is “don’t use the atomic bomb when something much simpler can be just as effective and cause minimal collateral damage!” Door prizes were awarded and everyone left the seminar with a full stomach and a wealth of information on “how to grow large amounts of produce in a very small area.” The garden buffet, with the Eggplant Parmigianino, salad with lots of fresh tomatoes and chocolate zucchini bread provided to the guests at the seminar was absolutely scrumptious! On Sunday, November 4, Kimbrow gave a live on-site, show-and-tell demonstration on “Mittleider Gardening Secrets” to the group of prospec-

tive gardeners who attended the Thursday night seminar. Among other techniques, Kimbrow demonstrated raised soil beds, how to get rid of “bad” leaves and stressed the importance of keeping the leaves off the ground. Kimbrow also demonstrated and explained even distribution watering techniques and how much water to use. He had his helpers actually demonstrate how to assemble and hook up the PVC irrigation system. Kimbrow informed the participants that his maximum yield of tomatoes on a 90’ X 90’ plot was 740 pounds in one picking! He also demonstrated the planting process, including prepping the soil with preplant mix and weekly feeds. Kimbrow also gave the participants a tour of the greenhouses and the squash and zucchini gardens with helpful tips on effective growing techniques. Fresh hand-picked vegetable samples were generously distributed to the participants. For further information go to or email info@letsgrowstuff. com and learn more about the Mittleider system.

Veteran’s Day Celebration at Keene Junior High

Article written by: Joyce Anne Yates / KJH Counselor Keene Junior High School students and staff were invited to witness a very special as-

sembly honoring the men and women who have served in the American Armed Forces

from the Revolutionary War to our present day. Mr. Brockman, 8th grade

science teacher and history buff invited his long time friend, Mr. Bassett to lead out in a Special Salute to U.S. Veteran’s. A time-line represented by Keene High School students, special guests, and community volunteers dressed in the actual uniforms or replications of period uniforms from each of the major wars fought by U.S. troops was formed. Twelve Keene H.S. students, Keene athletic director, Jason Hill, depicting a WWII, U.S. Marine Corp; Mr. Webber, husband of Mrs. Webber, KJH 7th grade math teacher, in the uniform of 101st Airborne; Sergeant First Class Michael Lindsey, parent of KJH 7th grade student, who served as a Combat Medic in the U.S. Army for two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, 26 years with the U.S. armed forces to date, currently serving active duty with

the Texas Army and National Guard; and special Guest, Mr. Bassett, graduate of the Air Force Academy and Captain who flew B-52 Bombers in the service of the U.S. Air Force, all participated, in uniform, to depict the soldiers in period uniform and the arms that were a part of each of the U.S. wars being depicted. The Assembly was opened with The Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. and Texas Flags and a Minute of Silence led by Lacy Little, 8th grade U.S. History Teacher at Keene J.H. Mr. Bassett narrated the Troop Salute, focusing on the bravery and service of those who have served to establish and protect the basic rights and freedoms that America has stood for. Keene ISD Superintendent, Wanda Smith, school board President Sheri Hadley and board member Dan E Roberts was in at-

tendance, as was Sandra Denning, Principal of Keene H.S. Her son, Parker Denning was dressed in the uniform of the Desert Storm soldier. Michael Remedies, 8th grade student also participated, wearing the uniform of the Minute Man of the Revolutionary War Militia. Mr. Brockman devoted over 20 minutes for the audience to ask questions concerning the uniforms, weapons and wars. He had more questions than time. The Keene Junior High students, staff, and visitors gave a standing ovation at the end of the program, having recognized an outstanding performance and message of a courageous heritage of hardfought for Freedoms which are precious and a basic right we as American’s continue to enjoy. These freedoms have certainly been worth fighting to preserve.

WWI: Early in 1917, an ill-prepared America reluctantly entered the war that was supposed to be the war to end all wars! It was, however just the first of two World Wars. In the fields of France, American “doughboys” would help save Europe and make the world safe democracy.

years later, however, a new foe of freedom and liberty reared its head. COMMUNISM. This would be a new kind of war, a COLD war. But it would not be peaceful. The fight started in Korea in 1950 and for three more years, Americans fought tyranny at the cost of 142,000 casualties. American bravery was common from the dark days on the Pusan perimeter to the incredible landings at Inchon. From MiG Alley, along Yalu River, to the icy horror of Chosin Reservoir back to the stalemate on the 38th parallel where the armies face each other to this day. Vietnam: The Cold War would grow hot again, this time in a small country in Southeast Asia—Vietnam. Over 58,000 Americans would fall in a combat that lasted from 1961 through 1973. It was a war with no front lines, in the jungles as well as the cities, soldiers were in danger. The battlefields had strange names, such as Ke Sahn, the Mekong Delta, and An Loc. Men gave their all flying missions in Rolling Thunder, Linebacker 1 and 2, and over Thud Ridge. Hundreds of Americans spent the better part of a decade in places like Son Tay and the Hanoi Hilton, all for the liberty around the world.
