Queen a study in hope, optimism BY CHASE CARTER Alejandrina Guzman, a senior at Azle High School, donned the crown and sash as the 2012 Homecoming Queen at the football halftime Oct. 26 – but the honor was only the most recent of many in the young girl’s life. Those who don’t already know Guzman cannot miss her in the high school hallways. Between classes, she rides her motorized “purple bulldozer” wheelchair, followed by an entourage of friends. Guzman was born with diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism, a genetic condition that affects her bone and cartilage development. Because of the condition, she measures in at just over two feet and must use that motorized wheelchair to move around. PLEASE SEE QUEEN, PAGE 2A.

CCPD to replace police Student poetry lassos six awards Azle Junior High poets earn thousands for college computers, DVRs BY CARLA NOAH STUTSMAN When Azle’s Crime Control and Prevention District was approved by voters in 1999, its first major goal was to fund Mobile Data Computers (MDCs) in all Azle Police Department vehicles. That goal was accomplished about six years later at a cost that exceeded $150,000 (a last-minute call to City Hall to confirm the exact amount was unsuccessful). The CCPD also funded the cost of Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) in the police fleet in 2008; that cost $61,926. It’s already time to replace them. Between wear and tear on the computers from often being used 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and evolving technology, the department’s MDCs have reached the end of their useful life. The CCPD budgeted $55,000 for the 2012-13 fiscal year for the replacement of those MDCs and planned to replace the DVRs the following year at a cost of about $60,000 for a total projected outlay of $115,000. However, CCPD board president David Johnson said actual cost for the MDCs had risen to $59,282, while DVR costs had climbed to $91,760 if purchased separately. That brought the total replacement costs for both systems to $151,042. Johnson explained that L-3 Mobile-Vision, Inc. has offered the district a bundled package for both the MDCs and the DVRs for $117,115. That’s just $2,115 more than the amount budgeted and projected by the CCPD, and saves the district $33,927 over two years. It also means the need to replace DVRs in the 2013-14 fiscal year is eliminated. Another benefit, according to Azle Police Chief Randy Reed, is that L-3 Mobile-Vision, Inc. offers repairs at a Dallas location. That translates into quicker and less expensive repairs because computers, DVRs and other equipment do not have to be shipped to another location for repair. The Azle City Council approved an adjustment to the CCPD’s fiscal year 2012-13 budget in the amount of $62,114.53 at its Oct. 16 meeting.

MGP nears end of marching season After Div. I award, band pushes for more success BY CHASE CARTER Azle High School’s Marching Green Pride begins their transition into UIL solo and ensemble and concert season, but not before attending a handful of big events left on the calendar. On Oct. 6, the band traveled to the Hurst-EulessBedford marching contest, earning a fifth place finish in the finals. This is an improvement from last year where the band did not make finals at all. UIL marching competition was held on Oct, 20th. The MGP brought their best performance and left proud with a first division rating. “It was a smashing success overall,” said director Shawn Murphy. While the band as a whole has no more formal competitions, the drumline will continue to hone

their drill and music for a performance at Lonestar Percussion Contest held on Nov. 10th at Marcus High School in Flower Mound. Though, this doesn’t mean anyone gets to rest, as the young musicians focus their main attention on Phase 1 of UIL performance on November 29th. Phase 2 and freshman UIL band auditions will be held Dec. 3, meaning the students have precious time to perfect their parts. During a state competing year, the marching band would still be in full swing, but their energy will have to be saved for the fall of 2013. “This year is a good preparation for the next, as I look at it,” said Murphy. “We’ll be better and stronger as a result. We wish every year could be a state year, but that doesn’t mean we still won’t give it our all.”

ID theft reported two years late By Gail Gilmore “Identity theft is exploding worldwide,” Azle police Corporal Zach Hatton said this week. “It is by far the single fastest growing type of crime.” Azle police received a report of identity theft last week that is unusual in that the crime was committed in December 2010, nearly two years ago. Identity theft, sadly, is not unusual in Azle. But this victim had just received word from the federal Internal Revenue Service that “her” federal tax form for that year had not been received by the IRS. This was news to her, as she had filed her taxes prop-

erly, Hatton said after the Azle News questioned why a crime that was two years old had just been turned in with the weekly reports. Turns out the victim’s Social Security number had been used by someone for their employment documentation and the income for that job was duly reported to the IRS. Of course, she didn’t file a tax return for that job. “We’ll never hear another word about this case,” Hatton said. “But we turned the report over to the IRS and they will investigate.” There is a large, organized group of criminals engaged in this type of identity theft, Hatton said.

Azle PD to receive new computers, video recorders n AZLE, FROM PAGE ONE.

partment for $5,000. SIDNE is a battery-powered vehicle that simulates the effects of distraction and impairment from alcohol and other drugs on a motorist’s driving skills The vehicle, which looks much like a Go-Kart, was purchased by the Azle CCPD and was the subject of an agreement between the Azle PD and several other law enforcement agencies in the area for common training and use as available. It was intended to be used in conjunction with driver’s education classes by the law

enforcement agencies that participated in the agreement. SIDNE resided in Azle, and the Azle PD bore the responsibility of maintenance and repairs when they were necessary, per the agreement. But soon after SIDNE arrived in Azle, driver’s education courses were eliminated at Azle High School due to budget cuts in a downwardly spiraling economy. As SIDNE has aged, it’s seen less and less activity in Azle. The Hudson Oaks PD uses it frequently, however. “It just didn’t make sense for us to continue to pay for maintenance and repairs when we aren’t getting any use out of

SIDNE,” said Reed. “By selling it to Hudson Oaks, they’ll take our position in the agreement and have the major responsibility for upkeep, but we’ll still be a participant in the agreement, meaning we can schedule for the use of SIDNE whenever it’s available.” The CCPD paid a little more than $12,000 for SIDNE in 2009. And, as mayor Alan Brundrett pointed out, the $5,000 the district will recoup from its sale will offset the $5,000 expenditure also approved by council Oct. 16 to provide drug-testing kits to parents of students who attend classes in the Azle Independent School District.

Citizenship 101: Don’t ever run from a police officer By Gail Gilmore If a police officer tells you to do something – like “stop” for instance – do it. Johnny Lee McCombs, Jr., 43, made a run for it on Oct. 22, after a possible vehicle accident near the intersection of Kimbrough Road and Stribling Drive in Azle. Regardless of how the vehicle ended up in a small patch of land near that intersection, and regardless of how the tire tracks leading up to the truck and trailer got there, when McCombs left the scene and then ran after police officers spotted him, he committed a misdemeanor that is punishable by up to one year in county jail and up to a $4,000 fine. Even if that truck and trailer don’t belong to him. Running away from the officers is the class A misdemean-

or he is charged with. Azle Corporal Zach Hatton, the police department spokesman, also is a patrol officer and he and two other officers were dispatched to the area of Kimbrough and Stribling after dispatchers received two separate calls about a possible accident there shortly after 8 p.m. When the three arrived, they found a damaged speed limit and stop signs, and a truck and trailer that were unoccupied, Hatton said. “I drove around the area, because he had to be somewhere around there,” he said. He did see a man running through yards in a neighborhood north of the intersection, sometimes jumping fences and continuing on a path that was roughly back in the direction the abandoned vehicle had come from, Hatton said.

Officer Blake Rich maintained “visual contact” with the running man and Hatton repositioned his vehicle to be ahead of the man’s apparent path. Sure enough, he ran right in front of the patrol car, Hatton said. “It was good team work,” he said of Rich’s observations. “He just kept calling (the runner’s) location” on the radio. The man had been running about half a mile, with several fences vaulted or climbed and by the time he went in front of the patrol vehicle “he was out of gas,” Hatton said. He did continue to run however, and got tangled up in a briar patch. “He trapped himself,” Hatton said. “I asked him why he ran and he said he didn’t,” Hatton continued. “So I said, ‘You’re half a mile from your vehicle.’”

Ten Mile Bridge Road A 21-year-old female driver found herself trapped inside fenced property belonging to Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) about 8:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 26, after her car ran off the road and under a chain link fence in the 10000 block of Ten Mile Bridge Road. About 70 linear feet of fence was damaged, according to TRWD spokesperson Chad Lorance. The woman attempted to get out by ramming the gate to the property several times with her car, causing about $3,000 in damage to the gate alone. Still unable to get out, the woman abandoned her car and left the property on foot. TRWD police declined to release the woman’s name pending the outcome of their investigation. TRWD Officer Michael Foster, who worked the incident, noted the woman was fortunate that her car swerved left after entering the property. Had the car continued on a straight path, it could have easily plunged down the embankment into the spillway discharge area below. Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman

3 hurt in collision Accident results from ’perfect storm’ by carla noah stutsman Rain. Wind. Highway construction. Speed. All came together Thursday, Oct. 25 as a cold front blew through Azle, setting up a perfect storm of factors that caused an accident that injured three in the 1100 block of Texas 199 near Westline Road. Just as the norther passed through town, a thin band of rain came and went in about 30 minutes. At about the same time, Gloria and J.C. Kime of Boyd were leaving David Beard’s Catfish restaurant in the 1100 block of Texas 199. Gloria, 75, was driving their red 2002 Chevy 1500 pickup and J.C. was in the passenger seat. Meanwhile, Dominic Dewayne Wallace, 20, of Azle, was eastbound on Texas 199 driving a green 1996 Pontiac Bonneville. According to an accident report filed by Azle Police Officer Victoria Little, Gloria Kime said that as she attempted to pull onto the highway, her view was blocked by a large piece of road-

work-type equipment possibly belonging to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) or a subcontractor. The agency is resurfacing the roadway on the highway between Azle and Springtown. Still, just as the darkening sky began to pour rain, Kime pulled out eastbound and immediately moved into the left lane in preparation to make a left turn. Wallace was in that lane traveling between 60-65 miles per hour as he passed a disabled 18-wheeler in the right lane – too fast to stop before he plowed into the rear of the Kime’s pickup. Both Kimes were taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital-Azle by Parker County’s LifeCare ambulance. Wallace was taken to the same hospital by Azle Fire Department Ambulance. Little, in her report, faulted Gloria Kime for Firefighters and paramedics tend to Dominic Wallace of Azle after his 1996 Pontiac changing lanes when unsafe and Wallace for Bonneville slammed into the rear of a 2002 Chevy 1500 pickup that pulled out in front of him in the 1100 block of Texas 199 Oct. 25.

In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, 423 Forte Junior High School seventh and eighth grade students, faculty and staff embraced the meaning of staying drug free by spelling out “FJH IS DRUG FREE!” in a human formation Oct. 23. Stable Horizons, an aerial photography company in Southlake, captured the message from a Cessna four-seater that flew over Forte’s football field. Students celebrated with a pep rally afterward.

AHS DRAMA FOOD DRIVE On Oct. 30th, Azle High School drama students participated in their 4th annual “Trick-or-Treat so Kids Can Eat” food drive. The students combed Azle, going door-todoor, and collected cans instead of candy. In three hours they collected 1,800 canned goods to donate to the Community Caring Center. Last year’s total measured 745 cans. “They blew that number out of the water! If you happen to see any of them around, be sure to high five them and let them know how awesome they are,” said Tia Moen, theater instructor at AHS.

Azle Police Blotter Azle police report 13 arrests during the week of Oct. 21-27. There were no reports of driving while intoxicated during the time period, but police made a felony arrest for possession of a controlled substance after a patrol officer noticed something out of place. Lisa Dawn White, 37, was arrested on Oct. 22 for possession of a controlled substance in penalty group one, after officer Blake Rich noticed a vehicle parked at a recently vacated house in the 500 block of Lakecrest Parkway. The house had been emptied by a Tarrant County constable by an order of eviction, Azle police spokesman Corporal Zach Hatton said this week.

A vehicle was parked at the front curb of the vacated residence, and a white male was standing next to the vehicle’s passenger side door, which was open. White was near the house. Rich stopped to ask a few questions, recognizing White. During the conversation, Rich also glanced at the contents of the vehicle and observed a leather purse, which was gaping open and contained “green baggie which is frequently used drugs,” Hatton said. Officers don’t have to ask permission to look through the windows of a vehicle and items inside are considered “in plain view,” he said. The charge of possession of





850 N. Cardinal Rd. • Azle, TX • 817-444-1124

less than a gram of a controlled substance in penalty group one is a state jail felony. Penalty group one is the “worst” category, and includes such narcotic drugs as heroin and methamphetamine. If White is convicted on the charge, she faces between 180 days and two years in a state jail. She also may have to pay a fine of up to $10,000. Other arrests were for public intoxication, theft $50-500, assault with bodily injury, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to appear and for Azle and other agency warrants.

Marcus Lee Grogan Sr. 1934 - 2012

Marcus Lee Grogan Sr., 78, died peacefully in his home with family members present. The service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at First Christian Church of Fort Worth. Interment will follow at Arlington Cemetery in Arlington. Visitation will be held 5-7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 at Thompson’s Harveson & Cole Funeral Home. His memory may be honored with flowers or a gift to American Cancer Society, 3301 West Freeway, Fort Worth, TX 76107 or to Texas Parks and Wildlife, 4200 Smith School Rd., Austin, TX 78744. Marcus was a descendant of two pioneer families that settled Arlington in the 1800’s. Born in September of 1934 in Fort Worth, he was a resident of Arlington until he was five. He lived on Pennsylvania Avenue in Fort Worth until age 10 when they moved to the farm on the eastside. There he had horses, chickens, pigs and a great dog named Pal, who waited out front every afternoon for him to return from school. He graduated from Handley High School in 1952. He attended Arlington State College now known as UTA where he was a member of the rifle team. In 1994, he left the eastside for Eagle Mountain Lake in Azle where he lived the rest of his life. He was a long-time member of Handley Meadowbrook Christian Church in Fort Worth and more recently a member of Azle Christian Church. He did a variety of things throughout his career. He worked for General Dynamics now Lockheed Martin and in 1964, he and his dad opened Grogan & Taylor Auto Supply. After 25 years,

they closed the business and for a time he was a professional bass fishing guide. Following that, he spent the remainder of his working life in retail sporting goods for various companies often helping another dad get the right rod and reel or 410 shotgun for their child. He had a passion for life that is exemplified by all his various hobbies and skills he collected along the way and he was one of those who was quietly awesome at almost everything he did. He could shoot a BB from 50 feet. He was a champion archer, golfer and bass fisherman, winning trophies, purses and prizes. He taught his children how to hunt and how to properly field dress game which he did with the precision of a surgeon. He cooked, painted and taught himself guitar. He delved into each new hobby with the voraciousness of a starving student buying DVDs and reading books, articles and watching every PBS broadcast on the subject at hand. He was famous for his tinkering and could fix just about anything that broke. If he didn’t have the right tool, he’d make the tool and finish the job. He was a man of few words but he often made us laugh and was wise-cracking to the end. He loved his family and made many friends, many of whom he has kept for a

lifetime. He was the definition of amazing grace in his last months as his body was given over to the ravages of cancer and kidney disease. He died like he lived, on his own terms. He was their John Wayne, their Renaissance Redneck, and will be missed. Marcus was preceded in death by his parents, James A. and Hazel Grogan. Survivors include his wife, Peggy of 55 years; children, Marcus Grogan Jr. and wife, Donna of Weatherford, Michael Grogan and wife, Marcia of Arlington and Elizabeth Craig and husband, Charles of Driftwood; grandchildren, April, Marcus, Steven, Ben, Shelby, Matthew Grogan, Lucas and Ian Craig; and great-grandchildren, Nolan and Adrian Martinez.

Senior Spotlight By Darlene Holmes We had a very good Halloween party here Wednesday Oct. 31. A very good turnout – 45! Having hamburgers on the menu was a big plus. That’s one of our favorite meals. Even though two slightly over-warmed their buns, they forgave me for it (at least they said they did). I am still going to be looking over my shoulder for a day or two; you just never know about these seniors sometimes. No, but really I have the cream of the crop walk through our doors every day. They are all great and a lot of fun. We had several dress up for the party, and we all had lot of fun. James and Nancy Cozad

came as Anthony and Cleopatra. Larry and Becky Phillips came as an upside-down tree, and Becky wore a balloon hat. Jean Howard came as a witch, Rick Rue came as an Angry Bird – a big red one – and Jill Rue came as a black kitty cat. Lou Bently fixed the serving ladies balloon hats. Lou had a very colorful bunch of ribbons in her hair and wore a sign that said, “I’m retired, blow up your own balloons”! She had a box of balloons at the end of her table with the same sign by it. Everyone loved it. We had a surprise guest who stayed for lunch and also was in costume. I’ll call her the lady in black. We had several Halloween

cakes left so we drew names for them. The winners were: Don Howard, Sharon Johnson, Alicia Ramos, and Betty Dooley. A great time was had by all. I couldn’t do anything here if I didn’t have wonderful volunteers. They are great and greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone who helped, those who came in costume and especially everyone who ate lunch. It is the meals eaten on a daily basis that keeps the doors open for all the things that go on here. So, keep coming in for the food, fun and fellowship. We need you here. Also, a special thanks to Barbara for decorating the center for our party. It looked beautiful!

By Chase Carter Nathan and Matthew Ulshafer, students at Forte Junior High and Hoover Elementary recently passed their Shodan, the American Karate’s adult first-degree black belt test, on Oct. 27. The tests were held at Grand Master J. Pat Berleson’s outdoor dojo in Azle, and contained an extensive curriculum of kicks, punches, jumps, blocks and katas. In addition, current black belt students surrounded the brothers to test their self-defense against a variety of attacks including clubs, knives, and guns. Next, the Ulshafers went through a series of ten board-breaks and then presented a speech to the black belt board on their American Karate experience thus far. To conclude the tests, they underwent 15 rounds of sparring with other students in regular combat, two-on-one matches, and ground grappling. Both brothers have been attending karate classes at the BJ Clark Center under the instruction of father Tim Ulshafer and instructor Thomas. American karate is a combination of taekwondo, boxing, judo, jiu jitsu and aikido.

Azle PD spiffs up uniforms with new patch Azle police officers will sport a new look beginning today, Nov. 1, with a different department patch on their shirt sleeves. Officers’ uniforms are provided by the department, as are the new patches. Azle also arranged for a seamstress to

remove and replace the patches, Lt. Lee Blaisdell said this week. “As far as anyone can remember, the patch design is well over 20 years old,” Department spokesman Corporal Zach Hatton said. Blaisdell confirms that, the patch was

already in use when he first joined up in October of 1990. Hatton said the design was based on another city’s police department design. The new badge is based on officer suggestions as well as a review of a number of different agencies’ de-

signs, he said. While the department also considered redesigning officers’ badges, cost to replace every officer’s badge was prohibitive, Blaisdell said. They are considering a different look for patrol vehicles, Hatton said.

AHS cross country qualifies for Region I meet Boys 2nd, girls 3rd in windy Wichita Falls by mark k. campbell

The Hornet varsity squad with Tyler Johnson (left) and Brian Collard leading the way, battled 5-4A foes and an arriving norther at the dis-

Run like the wind. Into the wind. The District 5-4A Cross Country Championships took off at just about the same time a substantial norther blew into Wichita Falls’ Lucy Park. By the time the dust settled – or had blown away – both Azle varsities had qualified for the Region I meet in Lubbock. The boys, coached by Don Ostermann, missed out on the district title by just two points, trailing Denton Guyer. Hornets finished third, fourth, seventh, and ninth. “I thought we ran about as good as we could,” Ostermann said. “Everybody had a great effort and ran 30-50 seconds faster than we ran there at the Invitational [Sept. 13]. It seems we are peaking at the right time.” The girls were led by Sarah Perna and Valarie Matlock; both finished in the top 10. Coach Melody Dennis said, “I was so proud of the girls. Nothing feels better for a coach than to see her kids achieve what you know they’re capable of. They have excelled in a true ‘team effort.’” Kylie Fonville won the girls JV race and will go to Lubbock with the varsity Nov. 3. trict meet in Wichita Falls Oct. 25. Azle missed the team title by a Peyton Voisselle took fourth mere two points. RESULTS ON 12A. Photo by Mark K. Campbell in the boys JV race.

Happy Homecoming: Hornets bust Broncos Huge game Friday at Byron Nelson by mark k. campbell

A chill in the air. Ridiculously gigantic mums staggering junior high girls. A packed, festive crowd. A lovely queen. And a Hornet victory. It was as close as perfect as a Homecoming could be. Azle (6-2, 4-2) dispatched pesky Denton 31-0 to remain on track for a postseason berth. The game piddled along. AHS led 10-0 at the half thanks to second quarter scores of a Seth Campbell 23-yard field goal and a TD pass from Corbyn Koiner to Nolan Harris. Coach Devon Dorris said the Broncos lined up defensively to stop Azle’s aggressive running game. “They came out in a new defense, a four-man front. They had been an odd-man front. That took some adjusting,” he said. The contest reached the fourth quarter still 10-0. That was mainly thanks to the Hornet defense. “They played great all game long,” Dorris said. “They kept them out of our territory most of the time.” In that second half, the passing game opened up for Azle. Koiner, and later Brett Harris, completed aerials to just two receivers – Harris and Giovanni Augustine. Harris added a second touchdown in the final period on a Koiner pass and the last points came when Harris hit Augustine for a 30-yard score. About the only bummer of the night was an injury to Receiver Giovanni Augustine was one of two Hornets workhorse Hunter McDonald. with receptions in the Denton win. Photo by Mark K. Campbell Already with 60 yards rushing

Perfection not enough in contest You’d think predicting the winner of every game in the football contest would be a sure-fire first place winner. You’d be wrong. Two contestants missed zero games last week so the tiebreaker of Oklahoma State 34, TCU 16 (50) split up the cash.

First place, with a tie-breaker guess of 51, went to Lanie Arnold; it was good for $20. The second place $5 check went to Kevin Wilson who predicted 63 on the tie-breaker. Only one contestant missed a single game (the last one on the card, Pittsburgh-Washington):

Jackie Carpenter. He pocketed $5 for third. Some tips on this week’s games: Springtown, Byron Nelson, and Azle (possibly) can clinch playoff spots with wins; Azle’s top runner is out for the year; Lake Dallas has some injuries.

Suddenly pressed into action after an injury to starter Hunter McDonald, EJ Salinas Photo by Mark K. Campbell (33) gained 23 yards in Azle’s Homecoming victory. in just one and half quarters, he suffered a dislocation of the radius/ulna and is out for the season. His replacement, EJ Salinas, gained 23 yards on 10 carries. “Hunter was having a good

night. But we just have to adjust; we have players ready to step in,” Dorris said. An AHS defense that kept the visitors from hardly ever venturing past midfield was bolstered by two interceptions

by Jesse Salisbury and nearconstant pressure. It all made for a happy Homecoming and kept the Hornets right on the path for a huge game at Trophy Club Byron Nelson this Friday.

Cowboy trio leads rodeo team Three Azle High cowboys placed in the weekly North Texas High School Rodeo Association event sponsored by the Weatherford team. Two finished second. Josh Tinney, as a header, was the runner-up in team roping in 10.425 seconds, good for 65

points. Also finishing second was chute dogger Michael Williams. His time of 2.82 claimed the 65 points. Those points catapulted him to the top of the yearlong standings with 384 points – five more than Les Brock, Jr. who did not score in the rodeo at the

Saginaw arena. In the All-Around Cowboy race, Williams is fifth with 620 points. Another Hornet dogger, Jake Patch, also placed. He took sixth in 4.079 and won 37 points. He sits seventh in the seasonlong standings.

The Trophy Club school will clinch a playoff spot if they can beat Azle. The Hornets can clinch if AHS wins and Lake Dallas loses or if Azle beats Nelson by 11 or more points. About the Bobcats: “They look like the Hornets,” Azle coach Devon Dorris said. “They’re not flashy; they run well, pass well, and play defense well. Their offense is the same every week and their defense is the same every week.”

Junior varsity still unbeaten as the Hornets go 3-1 versus the Denton Broncos Impressive football seasons continue for the Azle High football subvarsities. Both junior varsities and one freshman team defeated its Denton counterparts. The JV Green (8-0, 5-0) remained perfect this season with a 35-14 thumping of the Broncos. The Hornet defense set Azle up in good field position early when linebacker Josh Suddeath recovered a fumble at midfield. But AHS stalled. However, another drive, beginning at the Hornet 14, reached paydirt in seven plays when Cole Crawford ran over from the 1. Dylan Tritton boot-

ed the PAT for a 7-0 lead. After the AHS D repelled the Broncos at the Azle 5, the Hornets scored again when QB Trevor Boiles hit Jaime King with a 33-yard TD pass. That made it 14-0 after Tritton’s kick, and that score stood at the half. After a Denton TD, Azle answered with a 17-yard pass from King to Lane Taylor. That put the Hornets up 21-8. King intercepted a pass on the next Bronco drive, but AHS’ offensive effort faltered. When the Broncos scored, the tally was 21-14. The came two Hornet scores. Crawford ran over from the 2. Linebacker Justin Slinkard

thwarted the next Denton effort with an interception. On the next play, Boiles sped in from the 13 and Tritton’s PAT was the final point. The JV White got its first victory of the year, 8-0, over Denton. The AHS offense moved the ball “all night” coaches said, but the lone scores came when Cody Remich bolted in on a 48yard run then added the twopoint conversions. The final Bronco drive to try to tie the game was dashed when Dylan Moore intercepted a pass. The 9th Green (6-2) fell behind 28-7 before pouring over

31 unanswered points to beat Denton 38-28. Sean Townsend turned in a spectacular game with four touchdown runs of 49, 4, 10 and 4 yards. The other AHS TD came when Bryce Gum hauled in a 43-yard pass from Townsend. The final three points came off a 26-yard field goal by Justin Willett. Several big plays fueled the Azle comeback. Among them was a 64-yard screen to Willett, a 30-yard completion to a diving Trey Ramos, and a 24-yard run by Willett. The defense came up big in the second half, coaches noted,

with outstanding play turned in by Jon Mark Castillo, Trey Ramos, Willett, and Gum. The 9th White tumbled 1914. Azle scored when Justin Miller ran over from the 1 after hitting Tyler Houndeshell with a 31-yard play. Miller then passed to Kevin Hernandez for the two-point conversion. The other Hornet score came after Logan Hall caught a Miller pass good for a nice gain then Chase Preston ran over from the 15. Lauded for their defensive play were Daniel Salazar, Chase Frechette, and Carl Bertsch.

Azle vs Forte Volleyball Special Editor’s note: We normally edit coaches’ submitted stories to our format, but this one had a life of its own. It’s by coach Kriss Meeker and covers the AJH-Forte 8th A volleyball contest of Oct. 25. MKC You could feel the excitement in the air! The cool air moved in, and the sold out arena began to fill with nervous and excited fans. It was standing room only. The paparazzi lined the gym floor hoping to snap a shot of Smith, Shelton, Frazier, Ford, Lance, Idell, Huling, Boiles, Milstead, Bagwell, Kay, and maybe even get an action shot of that “magic” serving from Rodricks! The much anticipated cross town rivalry was finally here! Warm ups began and you could feel the

tension. Forte won the toss, and scored first. The cheers were deafening as the Forte fans erupted with whoops and hollering and whistling. But, not for long, as South stopped that run immediately. The South fans came alive! The yelling and screaming filled the arena. Game 1 continued with back and forth points. Smith finally had a short run that put South 5 points up. Forte called a time out, and did the “Wobble” in their huddle. Their dance and jig did not work. South came out from their huddle with that Eye of the Tiger look, and put the game away! First game was over and South won 25-15. Game 2 began. Shelton and Frazier began with a run on serves. The arena quieted down as Forte fans did not know what hit them!

Only 2 of their servers could put a point on the scoreboard. Bagwell had a short run to move the score to 15-6, but Forte managed to score 4 quick points. They did that dance thing again, but South had seen enough! Shelton was unnerved, and put together 6 straight hard serves that ended this crosstown rivalry with the South once again victorious! They defeated Forte 25-10. As the crowd poured out of the arena, it was South that was celebrating! They take on Wayside, the only other undefeated team in the district, Thursday at home. It will be a “Pink Out” game in honor of breast cancer awareness. So, wear your pink, and come out and support your Lady Hornets as they work to remain the only undefeated team in the district.

Volleyball The 8th B (9-1, 7-0) posted another victory, sweeping Forte 25-9, 25-9. “This win was a great team effort,” coach Keith Boenish said. It was the best we played all year.” Turning in “awesome play” were Emily Wynns, Emily Baumann, Abbie Morales, and Murri Jenkins. The undefeated 7th A topped Forte 25-10, 25-19 as Miranda Longbrake led AJH servers with 16 points. Other top servers included Hannah Kolar and Logan Graham (5), Mayson Cross (4), and Macey Hicks (3). Tristen Rush, Longbrake, and Hicks led servers while Maria Parkison, Graham, and Kolar were top hitters. The 7th B lost to Forte 26-24, 17-25, 23-25. Jordan Phillips, Sarah Garner, Mackenzie Ambrose, and Maddisen Pierce led the B. Football The 8th Green fell 18-14 to Forte. Chase Blackburn found Bailey Randall for a TD before halftime to make the score Forte 12, Azle 6. AJH got the lead 14-12 when

Seth Ortega scored, but Forte got another TD. AJH had reached the Forte 16 when time ran out. The 8th White topped Forte 146. Hunter Donaldson scored on an 18-yard run and Jacob Haskins hit Taylor Strong for the 2-point conversion. After Forte got to 8-6, Tyler Ruleas scored. Trent Grace, Isaiah Mata, and Cole Williams led the defense. The 7th Green (3-4) won 14-8 over Forte. Cody Donnell threw a 55-yard TD pass to Sam Collins. Colby Christian intercepted 3 passes and Jordan McNeely forced a fumble. The 7th White (7-0) beat Forte 30-6. Brady Heid led the team, coaches said; he had a hand in several touchdowns and made many “huge” plays, coaches recalled. Heid threw a 65-yard TD pass to Trey Anderson then faked out even the refs on a 20-yard paydirt keeper. Later, he stripped a ball carrier and ran 52 yards for a TD then intercepted a pass. The 7th Black fell 6-0 to Forte. It was the first game in three weeks for the Black, coaches said.

Forte Junior High Volleyball The 8th A fell 15-25, 10-25 to Azle. Heather Patterson led the A, coaches said. “The girls had some great hits, great serves, and great blocks,” coaches said. “They have improved tremendously.” The 8th B tumbled 9-25, 9-25 to Azle. Jordan Mathis earned praise for her play. “The girls are continuing to improve. We had some great plays on the net,” coaches said. The 7th A lost to Azle 10-25, 19-25. Hannah Boyd and Autumn Johnson earned kudos for their net play as did Riley Glennon’s serving. The 8th B beat Azle 24-26, 2517, 25-23.“When we got down, there was always a hustle play that got us right back in the game,” coaches recalled.

Top players: Destiny Juantos, Hannah Blackwell, Jenna Okubo, Steven Pearce. The White beat Springtown Riley Sparks, and Petra Barron. 18-14 as Zack Kent, Steven Anderson, Christopher Rees, Mikey Football The 8th Green beat Azle JH 18- Pletcher, RJ Freeman, Matt Rager, 14.

Making the politically correct decision Nov. 6


hese are tricky times to be an evangelical Christian. And, to top it off, here’s our national presidential election offering not much of a choice for “real” Christians. Ninety-nine times out of 100, they’d never vote for a Mormon. Are you kidding?! But, guess what? This is that 100th time for most. The library of my Baptist church is full of books saying the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a cult. And yet a Mormon is the most likely choice for conservatives this Nov. 6. Try Googling “Jesus and Mormons” and you’ll find out that the “Jesus of the Bible isn’t the Mormon Jesus.” The Mormon Jesus came to America. Now this was ancient America – before Walmarts. There might’ve been a 7-Eleven, but they certainly only had two Slurpee choices (cola and cherry, and one of those didn’t work). There’s also the widely-held belief

that Mormons get their own planet (or universe) if they’re exalted. The web site says this is not true. Which is a bummer. Just like I once played softball with a bunch of church of Christ guys (just in case they really are the only ones getting into heaven), I used to jog with a Mormon, hoping the connection would be enough to get me some sort of celestial orb – if not a planet then at least a moon. (I have already chosen the name, Zarf. Don’t try to steal it; that’s a sin.) My gravest concern about a Mormon being in the White House is that he might initiate the Latter-day Saints ban on caffeine. The withdrawals would likely wreak havoc with whatever healthcare system we have then. Mormon’s strict consumption regimen allows them to live 8-11 years longer than the white population of America (according to again). At my Baptist “fellowship” pot

lucks, the awesome food there actually reduces your life span. Which is way worth it. You can beat everyone to heaven. (Or Zarf. Keep off the grass.) So evangelicals could vote for a Mormon. Hey, they’ve swallowed hard in the voting booth before; pulling that Kennedy (a Catholic!) lever in 1960 was no easy chore. They ON YOUR didn’t get a promise of MARK their own planMark K. Campbell et back then, but, later in the decade, we started trying to fly to them. The other major choice is a guy who, if you believe the wild-eyed rants on conservative radio, is the worst person

who ever lived. His church of choice? One where his preacher wasn’t exactly a big fan of the good ol’ U.S. of A. In fact, the pastor’s cursing of America did not fly too well with most, especially we white Southern Baptists who are already living 8-11 years shorter. That rant did not help our blood pressure any. The “hope” kind of began petering out and the “change” wasn’t all it was predicted to be. My parents thought the word “million” was a lot. Politicians taught my generation that “billion” was a lot. Now, today’s kids chuckle at the mere mention of “trillion.” Our leader’s birth certificate is apparently in the same lost box as his collegiate papers. Plus it’s too early to tell if his wife is finally proud of America for the first time. So, without question, our beloved country will never be the same if the current president is re-elected! Yes,

that’s what’s been said in every other election before this one. Each time, the end was near yet the sun dared to continue to rise. I’m going to vote even though the Republican will easily carry Texas. (Interesting sidebar: Despite 36 years of wedded bliss togetherness, the bride has never told me for whom she’s voted. Now, she’s quite conservative, somewhere between the ultra right yoga-is-evil and the middle of the road I’m-dressing-up-for-Halloweenas-a-Playboy-bunny-but-wearing-aturtleneck-sweater conservative. So I can guess.) As for me, I’ll pray and ponder and read and listen and decide. You should, too. And I’ll wait for the winner to be announced with a big ‘ol Mexican Coca-Cola in hand (double sugar, double caffeine) – just in case.

Mark K. Campbell is the News editor and, true story, has a column “on file” at the LDS main office. And he once met a guy in Austin who said he was Jesus. He was not.

An ordinary, imperfect example


f God had a wife, it would be my Grandmother. At least that’s what I thought when I was a kid. She probably did more ministry than any preacher in the little community of Grandfalls, TX. Her skills as a Registered Nurse were pretty valuable in that little community. She visited the sick and also visited on behalf of the little Baptist church there. Rumor has it that folks were afraid to miss church on Sunday because Mrs. Pollard would be at their house on Monday to check on them. She was a saint in the Biblical sense of the word. What that means is that she was a follower of Christ and understood that God had selected her for a purpose. That’s what the word means: “One who has been set apart for God’s purpose.” And just like those other Biblical saints, she wasn’t perfect. When my mom was in college, she went through a rough patch. Grandmother was worried about her and went to where Granddaddy was working out in the west Texas oilfields. As Granddaddy told it, she expressed her concern to him and he had an answer for her. “The only thing wrong with

that girl is that she inherited your temper and my temper and the combination of those two is pure hell.” (His words, not mine). According to his recollection, Grandmother stuck out her chin and said, “I’ll have you know I don’t have a temper!” And then she stomped over to her car, got in and slammed the door, and sped off throwing gravel all the down that LIFE MATTERS way oil patch road. Gerry Lewis er Grandmothhas been gone for 36 years and Granddaddy has been gone for 12, but that is one of the many stories that get repeated, and laughed about, when Mom and I start reminiscing, as we did last weekend. I think I enjoy hearing about the funny predicaments and foibles of my ancestors more than I enjoy hearing about their successes; partly because they are fun-

ny and partly because it reminds me that God shows up in ordinary, imperfect people who follow Him. The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” As one who wrote more than two-thirds of the New Testament and who evangelized most of his known world, he might have been tempted to just say, “Follow my example.” But his focus was pointing people to Christ. Grandmother pointed me to Jesus. An occasional temper flare up can never negate that. I hope that when my future grandchildren remember the quirks of their ordinary and imperfect grandfather, they remember someone who loved them and pointed them to Jesus. I once commented that my kids got their temper from their mother. She said that must be true because I still have mine. Oops! I guess if it works that way, they must have gotten their good looks from me. After all, she still has hers.

Letter to the Editor On a quest to save the AYA trophies My little brother is 11 years old. He has played pee-wee football for six years in the Azle Youth Association. Since his first seeing the older kids receive those enormous trophies for playing football after so many years, he decided then, at his first awards ceremony, that he would earn one; thus began his hard work and support fo the AYA. It now appears that he will not receive his trophy. Due to recent complaints from parents about the fairness of different sized trophies, the AYA board members have voted to take away this tradition along with many players’ aspirations which are so close to being achieved. The players will instead receive a smaller trophy along with a plaque displaying each year of competition. If the AYA goes through with this, my little brother, as well as many

other children with whom he has played alongside throughout the years, will be given an unfair impression about life: Hard work doesn’t pay off. A solution that could possibly please both sides of this issue is possible. Allow the kids who have already begun working for these larger trophies the glory they’ve expected and earned by giving them their reward. Begin this new tradition of equal-sized trophies and plaques from the 2013 flag level players who have not yet been exposed to the current tradition. This way, the new generation will not be expecting the larger trophies from the start, and the current will not be disappointed. There may still be time to reverse their decision. If you find this issue as heartbreaking as many players and their parents do, I ask that you take thet time and contact the Azle Youth Association. Tell them that they shouldn’t take away these trophies of inspirations. Clint Brown

Elm Creek Raid in Young County holds many stories


zle resident Tammy Jones asked me to write a column about the Elm Creek Raid in Young County, Texas because her greatgreat-great grandmother was taken captive in that encounter. Her ancestor was Elizabeth Carter Sprague FitzPatrick Clifton, a 39-year-old grandmother who was the widowed owner of a prosperous ranch and Trading House near Fort Belknap in Young County near where Elm Creek drains into the Brazos River. When attacked by Kiowas and Comanches October 13, 1864, at home that day were Elizabeth, her daughter Susan Durkin and Sue's three children, Elizabeth's son Joe Carter, and a slave woman named Mary Johnson with her four children. The besieged Texas pioneers fought hard, firing weapons at the attackers. Two defenders were killed in the exchange, Susan Durkin, and one of Mary Johnson's children. Those captured and carried away by the Indians included Elizabeth FitzPatrick, her


son Joe Carter, age 15, Charlotte (Lottie) Durkin, age five, Millie Durkin, age two, a baby, and the black woman Mary Johnson and three of her children named Jude, Lottie and John. Killed soon after capture were Joe Carter and Sue Durkin's baby. Two persons taken in this wellknown raid have received more attention in history than Ms. Jones' greatgreat-great-grandmother Elizabeth. These are little Millie Durkin, who never gained freedom, and the husband of Mary, Brit Johnson, who after arriving home and finding his family captured, determined to get them back. I have written columns about Millie and Brit. Unfortunately, when facts are recorded from memory after many years, books, articles, and newspaper stories often tell different tales. Briefly, Millie's story was that a Kiowa husband and wife in the tribe who had no children of their own kept her. The tribe told the story that she had died. In 1930, one of Millie's sons-inlaw began searching to find her white

Carter, and came west, ending up near Fort Belknap. They began raising cattle and farming. Elizabeth ran the ranch while her husband and fatherin-law operated a freighting business. She also ran a boarding house, called the Carter Trading House. In 1857 both her husband and father-in-law were murdered. Joe Carter's estate left the ranch to his two children, but Elizabeth was guardian for her son. In 1858 Elizabeth married Lt. Owen A. Sprague, but eight months later he disappeared. On August 26, 1862 Elizabeth married Thomas FitzPatrick, one of three cowboys who worked on the ranch. Eighteen-months later FitzPatrick was murdered. Elizabeth, survivor of these numerous tragedies, was to survive one more, the Elm Creek Raid. A Kiowa chief named Sun Boy and his raiders carried her to northwestern Kansas where she endured one year and 20 days captivity before General J. H. Leavenworth rescued her on November 2, 1865. She was held at the Kaw Mission at Council Grove, Kansas to await transEditor Mark K. Campbell

port home. She assisted other released captives for 10 months before finally arriving home August 27, 1866, nearly two years after the raid. Her two children, the legal owners of the ranch, both were dead. Elizabeth found her granddaughter Lottie, who already had been released, but Kiowas had disfigured her with tattoos. Elizabeth married a Parker County farmer, Isaiah Clifton, and cared for her granddaughter and her husband's four children. She also wrote numerous letters seeking any knowledge of her granddaughter Millie. As late as 1877 she wrote the Office of Indian Affairs in Washington about her. The ranch was Lottie's inheritance, so Elizabeth and her husband moved to Fort Griffin to see after her interests. Elizabeth died there in 1882 and was buried beside Clifton who had died two years earlier.

Movie Man

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Head in Clouds philosophy folk will love this one Today, folks gripe: “Remakes and reboots – can’t Hollywood make anything new or different?” Well, Cloud Atlas is different. Too weird for some, not weird enough for others. But, certainly, it’s different. About the film The book Cloud Atlas is one of those tomes called “unfilmable.” With six different storylines written in six different styles merging thousands of years of plot, the book was considered too dense. But the creators of the Matrix trilogy, the Wachowskis, joined with Tom Tykwer, another outof-the ordinary filmmaker (Run Lola, Run [1998]), and hammered out the idea that a few actors could play multiple roles through the lengthy time span. When Tom Hanks, our greatest American actor (with Denzel Washington) signed on, suddenly interest really piqued for the movie. The directing trio split the script and each had separate production crews. A movie with three directors is very rare. Two happens occasionally, most often with animated movies. There’s the Coen Brothers, of course, and the Farrelly siblings. Warren Beatty and Buck Henry were both credited with Heaven Can Wait (1978). Anthologies like The Twilight Zone (1983) and New York Stories (1989) are comprised of short films, each made by different directors. Some movies have been started by one director and, usually because of disagreements, another replaces him. Victor Fleming didn’t direct all of The Wizard of Oz (1939) and one of the great sequels, Superman II (1980), was made at the same time as the original, 1978, by director Richard Donner. Much of that second movie – perhaps 75 percent – was already done when Richard Lester came in after Donner was removed/left. One reason multiple direc-

tors is frowned on comes from the Director’s Guild of America which is concerned about “the integrity of the work.” Airplane! (1980) was credited to Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker, but they had to prove to the DGA that they all indeed had had a hand in it. The most directors winner is 1967’s Casino Royale which is credited to five, back when the DGA wasn’t as concerned about credits. So, with three directors, Cloud Atlas comes out of the chute different. And it gets way weirder from there. The plot (this is tricky) Through different time frames of history, individuals find themselves – in different bodies, races, genders, and circumstances – interweaving with the same people. Hanks plays everything from a futuristic near-barbarian who is leery of city-dwelling Halle Berry to an 1840’s seafaring doctor who is slowly poisoning a passenger to steal his gold. All major actors have multiple roles, like Movie Man favorite Jim Broadbent (that hilarious sequence “Spectacular! Spectacular!” from Moulin Rouge! is one of the all-time great scenes). In Cloud Atlas, he’s best as

Movie Man a composer who is visited by a much younger man who wants to collaborate. Broadbent’s section as a modern day man locked up by his brother in a nursing home and his comical attempt to escape is easily the lightest section of the picture. Most riveting is the futuristic tale – the second most distant story before Hanks’ – of a timid woman (Doona Bae) created in Neo Korea as “fabricant” just to serve her masters. Bae discovers an underground movement that is looking for someone, her, to lead a revolution.

are fun – best is the top-hatted, sharp-toothed, zombie-fied leprechaun-green Bill Smoke; his Nurse Noakes (a woman) is also chancy as is the donning of Asian makeup on many Caucasian actors (risky in these P.C. days). The effects throughout the movie are solid for the most part. A lot of cash looks like it was spent on the sci-fi episodes. The beauty of Cloud Atlas is that, after about two hours, the film begins to coalesce. The movie is suddenly cut much faster with the links between the times becoming more obvious. The concluding platitudes will either make you tear up (if you’re buying all this) or roll your eyes (if you’re not.)

A shoebox filled with small toys and school supplies may be the only gift a child in a poor country receives at Christmas or any other time of the year. Photo courtesy of Samaritan’s Purse BY GAIL GILMORE There is a relatively quiet celebration among Christians coming up. Yes, that one – but before Christmas Day, Christians all over the nation work for months to collect, organize, and prepare to ship small boxes of children’s gifts. Operation Christmas Child was started in 1993 by Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable organization, and has quietly but steadily become a major children’s charity. At the front end, hundreds of thousands of Americans collect small items for poor children worldwide. Picking up pencils and paper on sale, other school supplies, small hygiene items and toys suitable for small children is a year-long ministry for some people. They collect these types of things when they find them on sale and then keep them stored at home until October, when the serious packing begins. The packages are collected at regional centers, including First Baptist Churches of both Azle and Springtown Nov. 12-19. Nancy Griffith, a member of First Baptist Church in Azle, is one of those year-long collectors for Operation Christmas Child. She and her husband Phil buy pencils, for instance, in large quan-

tities and then divide the stash up among dozens of shoeboxes. Another longtime Christmas Child participant said some people use a boot box for additional capacity. Fill the box up, put a rubber band around the outside to keep the lid with box, label the top with whether the gift is for a boy or a girl, slip a check for $7 or more under the band and take it to your church, or the nearest collection center. Local collection center hours are listed at right. Operation Christmas Child is a Christian missionary enterprise, and religious materials are included in the shipments, according to Lee Sipe, pastor of FBC Azle. His parishioner Griffith also acknowledges the purpose. “It’s spreading the gospel, that’s the important thing,” she said. Sipe has an insight into the large impact a small gift can make for children living in poverty around the world. “My wife grew up in the Philippines,” he said this week. “(Many) children there scrounge through the garbage heaps looking for things they can sell, and for something they can eat.” His wife has recounted stories of using a pencil stub until it was too short to grasp, even for a child’s hands, he said. “We’re the first step in the chain,” Griffith said. FBC Azle filled 247 shoeboxes in their first stage of the collection early in October. The Azle church will take their shoeboxes, plus those collected by other churches such as Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, which has collected shoeboxes for eight or 10 years, volunteer Robert Voyles said. “It’s just an automatic thing we do every year,” he said. “It’s quite a program. The gifts go to little children living in dumps. The only time they ever see a gift is the shoebox.” Good Shepherd’s parishioners bring their shoeboxes on the Sunday before national collection begins, he said. The small congregation brought 27 boxes last year. “That’s a good representation for a church our size,” Voyles said. Sipe echoed Voyles about the fact that these children do not otherwise see a gift for any reason, Christmas or otherwise. The boxes are shipped to 130 countries worldwide, Pastor Lee Sipe and volunteer Nancy Griffith of First Baptist Church in Azle will ac- many of them under authoricept donations of shoeboxes filled with small gifts for children worldwide during tarian rule that discourages Operation Christmas Child.

Christian missions. Some countries whose population is primarily not Christian do not allow the religious materials that Operation Christmas Child includes with its boxes, but they do accept the boxes and distribute them to poor children, Sipe said. From Texas, the shoeboxes will go to Denver. From there, to the Philippines, Africa, South America, Mongolia, and other countries, according to the Samaritan’s Purse website. Other churches in the area that are participating include Lighthouse Fellowship church on Robertson Road, First Baptist Church in Aledo and North Side Baptist in Weatherford.
