Tyler County Dogwood Festival Queen’s Weekend is Saturday
With two of the three Tyler County Dogwood Festival Weekends successfully behind us, everyone is looking forward to this weekend when the Queen’s Weekend crowns the entire Festival. Woodville is the place to be Saturday, April 2. Plan to get up early for the Fun Run and stay up late for the Queen’s Pageant. Queen’s Weekend is the original event, the one the Dogwood Festival was built on. And, this the 68th time Tyler County has celebrated
this weekend. The fun starts at 8 a.m. in front of Kirby Gym, 505 N. Charlton, with the Dogwood Dash. Watch for the runners as they weave through the streets of Woodville during this 5K run. Don’t head home after the run, though, because there will be booths filled with arts and crafts and lots of good food set up around town. The booths open at 9 a.m. and stay open until 5 p.m.
If you like classic and antique cars, or motorcycles, be sure to check out the exhibition set up by Courthouse square in Woodville. There are always lots of beautifully restored autos to drool over. The Queen’s Parade starts at 2 p.m. and travels through downtown Woodville. It is filled with beautiful floats, antique cars, motorcycles, visiting royalty, marching bands and lots more. The highlight of the day, though, is the
Queen’s Coronation and Historical Play presented in Dogwood Amphitheater at 7:30 p.m. The elaborate set is draped with hundreds of handmade flowers. Visiting Duchesses will take the stage, along with the Children’s Court, Ladies-In-Waiting and, finally, the Princesses. One of the five Princesses, representing five cities in Tyler County, will be crowned Dogwood Queen. The Historical Pageant will follow.
Changes ahead for Colmesneil Atheletics

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month Monday, April 9, Judge Jacques L. Blanchette and the Tyler County Commissioners will proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Tyler County. As part of the emphasis on child abuse prevention, there are several activities that members of the Tyler County Child Welfare Board have planned during the month of April. Youth members from Bethel Baptist Church in Warren have erected 231 blue crosses that represent the number of children who died in Texas last year as a result of child abuse. The crosses are located on Highway 190 by the Hennigan Ballpark. Cody Haygood, member of Boy Scouts, earned a Citizenship Badge by constructing and painting 50 crosses for this project. Wednesday, April 11, is “Go Blue Day” across Texas. On that day, please wear a blue shirt, dress, tie or ribbon to raise awareness of child abuse.

Blue is the international symbol for Child Abuse Prevention. The color blue was chosen to represent the bruised and battered bodies of the thousands of children that are abused every day. It serves as a constant reminder that all of us have a responsibility to help keep children safe. Protecting children should be the mission of everyone in our county. “Blue Sunday” is Sunday, April 29. This is the National Day of Prayer for victims of child abuse. Please join church members in recognizing these victims by wearing blue. During the month of April the Child Welfare Board is asking churches, schools and businesses to put the following message on their marquees: “STOP THE HURT” Report Child Abuse at 1-800-252-5400. To recognize the need for prevention and

oped. We will continue to work on leadership in the upcoming year.” He will serve as head football coach next year, and the plan is to have a total of six coaches on the field. Johnson explained, “Six coaches are normal for a football program the size of Colmesneil.” At the last school board meeting, the board voted to hire Daniel Veirs, from White Oak, Texas, as a defensive coordinator to add to the program next year. Another change in the works for the next year is to have each sport have one head coach and an assistant. Currently, there are programs that have one coach coaching three sports without an assistant; for example, the girls’ program has one coach, Sewell, coaching all of their sports: volleyball, basketball and softball, without an assistant. “That will change in the upcoming year. Each sport will have a head coach and an assistant,” said Johnson. As stated previously, Sewell will not be returning to coach the Lady Bulldogs in
the 2012-2013 school year. “I’m leaving Colmesneil and going to Gary ISD for personal reasons,” stated Sewell. “I’m going to miss this program, this school and this community,” he went on say. Superintendent Stacy Ackley was also asked about the changes. “Honestly, I would like to see the program, boys and girls, compete for championships year to year, in everything we do.” He went on to say, “For more in-depth details on how the athletic program will work, you really need to talk to Coach Johnson. “ Ackley was asked specifically to respond to the community’s recent questioning of his decision to hire “out of town people” with the hiring of Coach Johnson. “I’m going to look to hire the most qualified teachers and coaches; those who bring the most to the kids of our district. I don’t think parents would have it any other way,” said Ackley. “With that being said,” he went on to say, “If the applicant is a hometown
applicant, we are always going to look at hometown people first. I do believe in taking care of our patrons here. But the bottom line is we still have to hire the best person for the job; the one who brings the most to our kids.” Johnson said he thinks the athletes are accepting him now as a part of the CISD athletic program. He is beginning to settle into Colmesneil.“I’m happy here,” he said. “I see me staying here for a while,” he went on to say. When asked about setbacks since coming to Colmesneil, Johnson said, “I can’t remember one day. I love it here.” Johnson plans to incorporate a six-week summer workout plan for the students to keep them ready for the new year and a mini football camp for the future Bulldogs. The coaches and direction of the girls’ athletic program is still being worked out. Johnson said, “Colmesneil is a great place. I believe in hard work. I’m teaching the students, ‘you’ve got to learn to be tough to be successful’.”

by Leann Monk Change is in the air within the field house and gym of Colmesneil ISD. Even though the current year has not closed the books yet, eyes are already focused on what the next year will have in store. With the addition of new Athletic Director, Coach Fancy Johnson, in January and the recent announcement of Head Girls Coach, Reagan Sewell leaving for a position at Gary ISD, things will definitely look different for the 20122013 school year. Asked about his thoughts on the Bulldog Athletic Program for the upcoming school year, Johnson said, “We have nowhere to go but up. We’re going to have a sense of pride. I have expectations of pride from the ground up.” Johnson said the students have bought into his philosophy of hard work, leadership and teamwork. “My definition of ‘team’ is something bigger than myself. I stress this to my athletes,” said Johnson. He went on to say, “I also tell them that leaders aren’t just made, they are devel-

State, feds in standoff over women’s health program AUSTIN — Through the Texas Women’s Health Program, some 130,000 uninsured, low-income women ages 18 to 44 are provided with family planning exams, basic essential health screenings and birth control through Medicaid funding that is 90 percent federal Capitol Highlights and 10 percent state. On March By 31, the program Ed will lose its fedSterling eral funding if the state of Texas and the federal government don’t work out related issues that have become heavily politicized. Federal and state law currently prohibit the funding of abortion services except in cases of rape, incest or life endangerment, but the state of Texas recently applied for a waiver of federal rules in hopes of operating the Women’s Health Program in a way that complies with a state law passed last year that eliminates abortion providers and their affiliates as qualified providers of the other women’s health services. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services did not express any intention to grant a waiver that would allow the
state to pick and choose among qualified providers.Gov.Rick Perry reacted,saying it is his intent to protect women’s health, but not to allow the Obama administration to violate “states’ rights” by blocking the enforcement of a Texas law. And Perry said the Texas Health and Human Services Commission “cannot ignore state law and allow taxpayer funds to be awarded to entities that perform or promote elective abortions or affiliate with entities that perform or promote elective abortions.” Perry mentioned Planned Parenthood in his statement. State Rep.Mike Villarreal,D-San Antonio, in a March 6 news release, responded to Perry’s statements, saying nearly half of the program’s clients receive services through Planned Parenthood, an organization that does not provide abortions at Women’s Health Program clinics. On March 9, the non-profit, non-partisan Center for Public Policy Priorities in Austin released recommendations to the federal government and to the state. Here are excerpts: -- “The federal government should not flinch from strict enforcement of the federal law guaranteeing women freedom of choice in selecting their providers. If the state implements its rule excluding Planned Parenthood,the federal government should end its participation in the Women’s Health Program immediately.”
-- “The state should return to the old rules for the Women’s Health Program, which ensured that no program dollars subsidized abortion directly or indirectly,but did not bar Planned Parenthood from participating in the program. Alternatively, the state should delay implementation of its new rule while it turns to the courts to establish its authority to exclude Planned Parenthood.If it wins its case,then it can implement its rule excluding Planned Parenthood without jeopardizing federal funding. If it loses its case, then the Legislature can decide whether it wishes to end the program or continue the program without federal funding.” DPS issues travel caution
Patrol troopers on roadways during the spring break holiday period, March 10 to March 18. According to an agency news release, last year during the spring break enforcement period, the DPS made 1,266 DWI arrests, including 380 by troopers who were patrolling as a result of additional funding. Jobless rate drops again The Texas Workforce Commission on March 9 announced the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 7.3 percent in January, down from 7.4 percent in December. The 7.3 percent is Texas’ lowest unemployment rate since April 2009. By contrast, in January 2011, the state’s
unemployment rate was 8.1 percent. The U.S. Department of Labor reported the national unemployment rate stood at 8.3 percent in January and February of the current year. Sales tax revenue increases Texas Comptroller Susan Combs on March 7 announced state sales tax revenue collections in February were $2.01 billion,up 14.8 percent compared to February 2011. And, Combs said, March local sales tax allocations totaling $473.6 million will be sent to cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts.The amount is 9.3 percent greater than allocations sent out in March 2011.
TheTexas Department of Public Safety on March 6 urged students on spring break not to travel to Mexico. “Drug cartel violence and other criminal activity represent a significant safety threat, even in some resort areas,” said DPS chief Steve McCraw, who added, “The situation in Mexico today is significantly different than it was just a decade ago.” The DPS urged U.S. citizens living or traveling in Mexico to register with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate at https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/.

Born in 1805 on a farm near Berryville in Virginia, Washington moved to Vicksburg, Mississippi, in 1838 to practice law while living with his sister, Mary Herbert Beazley and her family. When the Beazleys gave Washington money and land to invest in the Republic of Texas, he exchanged the property for the William Logan League, now in San Jacinto County, and took the title in his own name with the intention of giving the property to his sister.

Washington sold his plantation to William B. Denson, who moved into the house with Washington. In 1868 Washington wrote a will giving all of his assets to Denson in return for settlement of his debts. He died on June 30, 1868, and was buried in his flower garden. Denson disputed Washington’s first will to his sister, but in 1873 she established that the will was valid. As the years passed,Washington’s grave was lost,but his descendants placed a tombstone in the Davidson Cemetery, near Drew’s Landing, defining his Confederate service. The passage of decades has left the cemetery unmarked, entangled in forest growth, and--like Washington’s final resting place--difficult to find.

Pickett House and Village Will Be Closed Easter Sunday Are you keeping your fingers crossed? So far the weather has cooperated, and it has been a lovely spring for the Dogwood Festival. With the Western WeekHeritage Village end behind us, we can now look By forward to the Sandy Queen’s WeekTaylor end leading up to the crowning of the new Dogwood Festival Queen. The candidates attended the Dinner on the Grounds and spoke to the attendees. They were all beautiful poised young women. I am glad I am not a judge! Vying for the crown are Meara Smith from Chester; Tiffany Waters from Colmesneil; Audrey Sisk from Spurger; Ashley Livingston, representing Woodville; and Valerie Sisk who calls Warren home. The large court of Ladies-in –Waiting, visiting Duchesses, all the escorts, and Children of the Court will be included in the Dogwood Pageant held Saturday evening.

The history of the Festival is portrayed in story and pictures. The display will remain up until the end of the month. With gas prices so high we are waiting to see if it will affect our school tours, but it seems that our senior and church tours haven’t been bothered, so that is good news.

Now, Play Fair. You Hear? — Redistricting Brouhaha “Judge. Make ‘em play fair.” Every 10 years or so, we can attribute that quote,or one very similar,to whatever political party is not in the majority (read:power) at the time theTexas Legislature begins its decennial redistricting brouhaha. You can substitute“mom”or“dad”for“judge” and you wouldn’t be able to distinguish between the childish behavior of kids and state legislators. As a matter of fact, when it’s time for redistricting the state to create new “equal” in population districts for state representatives, state senators and federal legislative representatives,just count on whichever party isn’t in power filing a lawsuit to ensure “equal representation” in our law-making bodies. Filling legislative entities with a majority of your own political party is the largesse of winning the elections closest to time for redistricting. At the time of this writing,the process reads: Republican-dominated Texas Legislature redraws districts to favor GOP majority. Minoritiesyell‘Unfair!”andcomplainthey’re shortchanged by the redistricting process. GOP: “Harumph! Balderdash! And, that’s a lot of el toro poo-poo.” Minorities say, “Oh, yeah!” and file suit in federal court in Austin. GOP: “It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money and a waste of time.” Federal District Judge: “The court has redrawn the Texas legislative districts.”
GOP: “Unfair!” and file an appeal. And, so it goes. By the time this all plays out,Texas taxpayers, nee voters, will have paid through the nose in more ways than one. First and foremost, redistricting in Texas is about one thing:preservation of the status quo ofourelectedrepresentatives,asdeterminedby the majority party of our elected representatives. Hmmm. For something that stirs up so much partisan vitriol, you’d think both sides would be seeking a sensible, sane and more practical way of establishing “equal representation” for Lone Star voters. But, noooo.... For years, more sensible and fair Texans and members of state government have tried to get fellow legislators to pass a law establishing a non-partisanredistrictingcommission,similar to Iowa. Again, the answer is a self-serving “no” from our miscreant representatives: “If you don’t play by my rules,” they seem to say, “then I’ll take my football and go home.” Inevitably,somewoefullymisshapeddistricts aretheresult.Inmid-decaderedistrictingafew yearsago,onedistrictreachedfromTheWoodlands,just north of Houston,all the way across East Texas, to Jasper County. In the western segment of the district, there was a heavy Republican voter registration then eastward to less populous Jasper County, which had been a generally Democratic-trending area.
MEMBER 2012 TEXAS PRESS ASSOCIATION
The district was drawn to create a heavyRepublican advantage. The connecting strip between densely populated Montgomery County and sparsely populous Jasper County was so thin, it was probably not much wider than the U.S. Highyway 190 right-of-way. That was pretty representative of the statewide patterns of this redistricting makeover and it was orchestrated by a GOP congressman from Sugar Land, Tom DeLay, he of the two left feet exhibition on TV’s Dancing with the Stars and of the political nickname The Hammer. What goes on and has for decades in Texas is the best possible argument for a redistricting commission,especially with the provisionthat no elected officials serve on the commission. Other states with such a commission have requirements that no district can be drawn in favor of any political party, an incumbent or any other person or group.They also provide that no district can be drawn with the purpose of either strengthening or diluting the voting strength of any minority trend or group. In Iowa, for instance, it is law that no data be provided to the commission that includes incumbents’addresses, the political affiliation of registered voters, previous election results and demographic data other than population head counts. In other words — one man, one vote. Isn’t that what the constitution calls for? Willis Webb is a retired community newspaper editor-publisher. He can be reached by email at <email@example.com>.

What Happens After Easter? By: Keith Bellamy
When I was growing up Easter was always a wonderful time. Not just for hunting eggs and not only for getting some extra candy with my Easter basket; we went to church to celebrate Christ’s resurrection. Now in our fellowship we celebrate Christ’s resurrection every Sunday. But Easter was always good. Many in our country don’t emphasize the resurrection anymore because it is such a far out story. That’s true for the skeptic anyway. And so, I am writing today to those who hopefully believe in the resurrection. What happens after Easter? Does His resurrection make any difference in your life? What gives you hope? Annette Funicello said, “Just because I’m in a wheel chair doesn’t mean I can’t have a wonderful life.” What a wonderful attitude! I wish all of us could develop such an attitude. She’s had to struggle with Mulitple Sclerosis now for many years. Just about every boy who grew up in the fifties loved Annette. She was my favorite Mouseketeer from the Mickey Mouse Club. But there is nothing ‘Mickey Mouse’ about this lady! She has set the standard for thse who struggle with M.S. She has hope. I was recently counseling someone who has an addiction to alcohol. He had “fallen off the wagon”, and was trying to overcome this addiction once again. The person I was trying to help has a “Christ less” religion. He had bought into the philosophy that one can deliver “self” from substance abuse. However, I have never seen that happen. Christ’s way is the only Way. He is the only One Who promises hope. He is the only One who keeps His promises. I believe in Jesus’ promise in John 11:25, 26, “Jesus said to her,’ I am the resurrecion and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.’” Do you? Where do you place your hope? The greatest Giver, Who ever lived willingly gave His life so that you and I can have eternal life. While His gift is free, He made certain requirements for receiving that gift. We will have to come to Him on His terms. Will you?

The Preacher Says...
Journey Into Fullness
by Keith Bellamy
Negative Or Positive?
The Good Shepherd I once had a friend named Joyce. She had two girls who were great softball players. My daughter was on their team. I didn’t get to the girls’ games because my son played baseball at the same time. Our family spent almost every day at the ballpark just for David’s games. Joyce thought I should be supporting the girls, so she spent a lot of time “recruiting” me. During that summer she and I became good friends. She wanted me into girls’ softball, and I wanted her into church—well, not just church, I wanted my friend Joyce to know Jesus Christ. It was hard to talk to Joyce because she was very religious. She was a good wife, great mother and a wonderful worker. If you wanted something done, Joyce was your girl. She thought all these good works would add up enough points for her ticket to heaven. It was easy to get Joyce to host a ladies luncheon and then a weekly Bible study in her home. She loved to entertain. One day I was impressed to give my friend a gift—a decoupage open book with the 23rd Psalm on one side and a picture of Jesus carrying a sheep on the other side. She loved the gift and put it on a table in her living room. Weeks went by and one day I received a phone call. Joyce was on the other end, crying and laughing and talking so fast I thought she’d lost it. Finally she said, “Just come over as soon as you can.” When I got to her house at the end of our street, Joyce was sitting on the couch holding the picture I had given her. Her eyes were sparkling with light as she blurted out,“I’m the lamb on His shoulder!” Together we laughed and cried as she related how the Holy Spirit had connected the dots for her using John 10:11. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” Joyce now believed Jesus gave His life-blood on the cross to pay the price for her sin. She gladly received Jesus as her personal Savior. See you next week, Gloria

Church Page Story Submission Guidelines
Some people just seem to love to be negative. I have said for a long time that if you watch or listen to the news media you will become negative. You might even become cynical. I think both of these dispositions feed on one another. But what about being positive? I like to be around positive people. I know our Lord was positive. Many times we can read Matthew 23 and think He really came down on those people and He was negative. But notice His tenderness in Matthew 23:37. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.” The other day I ran into one of our church members and it was a blessing to me when he said “every day is good day.” And this brother had recently gone through some rough times. Yes, it’s hard to be positive when bad things happen but who is in control? My Christian brother knows. Are you a negative person or a positive person? The last week of Jesus’ life looked very negative. However, our Lord knew there would be a positive outcome of His death. Our Savior knew Who was in control. He promised His followers an abundant life ( John 10:10). I believe this blessing from the Lord leads to a positive life.

Spurger Baseball and Softball teams face the Evadale Rebels
McKenzie McGallion swings for the fences. By: Emily Waldrep The Spurger Pirate baseball and softball teams faced Evadale on Wednesday, and came away with two tough losses. Even though both teams lost, they managed to keep their heads up and learn from their errors so that they can continue to improve. The softball team has had an amazing season so far, and knew that Evadale would be a tough team to beat. The game started out slow, with neither
team making any runs in the first inning. But, the second and third innings proved to be challenging for the Pirates, as Evadale quickly gained three runs, so the Pirates entered the fourth inning with a score of 3-0. The girls made some good hits in the top of the fourth, but it wasn’t enough to hold off the powerhouse Evadale team, and the top of the inning was ended before the Pirates could gain any runs. The bottom of the fourth with the Rebels at bat
proved to be the toughest inning yet, with Evadale scoring four additional runs and racking up the score to 7-0. The top of the fifth inning was “make it or break it” for the Pirates, because if Evadale scored three more runs, the 10 run-rule would take effect and the game would be over. The girls battled it out at bat, and Skye Hutto managed to get a single, but 3 outs were made before a runner could come home. Going into the bottom of the fifth, the Pirates
knew it could be their last inning and made some great defensive plays, but good hitting on Evadale’s part and minor errors for the Pirates allowed the Rebels to score another four runs, bringing the score to 11-0, and ending the game for the Pirates. Although no score was made for the softball girls, McKenzie McGallion performed excellently on the pitcher’s mound, and the infield made some great plays. The girls took the loss as a learning
experience, and are ready for the next game against High Island on March 30. The baseball boys also lost the game due to the 10-run rule in the fifth inning, but performed well when faced against such a large team as Evadale. Top scorers in the game were Hunter Smith with two runs and Mason Grey, Thomas Martin, John Smart, and Aaron Ford, who had one run each. Brett Bussel also managed to make the best play of the game with a grounder
to center field that brought three runners into home. The boys will play against West Hardin on Friday, March 30, and are keeping their heads up after a tough win.“We are learning from our mistakes, and every game will just get better,” said the players. Be sure to catch both teams games against West Hardin at home on Friday, March 30 at 4:30pm. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

David C. Davis Constable Precinct #2
I consider it an honor to be able to ask the voters of Precinct #2 to allow me to continue to serve as your Constable. I moved to Tyler Couty in June of 1978 and since that time have always worked and lived in Tyler County. For the past 25 years I have owned and operated my own business and believe the stability and integrity of the individuals who serve the people of Tyler County is the most important idea to be considered when selecting an elected official. I have maintained all of my training and continued to study to provide the best service to the voters of my precinct and have implemented and maintained a system of building checks for homes, churches, and businesses that has proved very effective in deterring break-ins and vandalism in our precinct. I will continue to serve all of my voters and all areas of my precinct for the full term of my office. My office has the only Deputy Constable in Tyler County which adds additional patrol and protection to the people of Tyler County and my department provides security for the Tyler County Courthouse, District and County Courts as well as the Precinct #2 Justice of The Peace Court. I would like to ask for your vote and support in the upcoming election so that we can continue to have a great place to live and work.
