Then-City Council District 1 candidate Malcolm Hamilton, right, looks over early voting results with former City Councilman Bill Cleaver on Nov. 8, 2016, at the Ector County Administration Building.
Kathy Goheen Leofﬂer recalled that Friday in January when District 1 Councilman Malcolm Hamilton visited the Salvation Army, where she works as the office manager. Hamilton asked to see the major to talk about a complaint he received of a broken washer in the emergency shelter that serves needy Odessans. Instead of waiting, Hamilton left a business card and told a receptionist to have Major Guy Watts call him.
When the major called Hamilton, Leofﬂer says she was one of two others in the room. “He said ‘You better a get a washer and dryer in there’ or he was going to pull our city funding,” Leofﬂer said. But Hamilton’s threat to the charity was a bizarre one. The Salvation Army doesn’t even get city funding. “He was being very stern and telling us what we better do when he didn’t even really know the facts,” Leofﬂer said. It’s yet another account of the >> See MALCOLM Page 4A

uring his campaign, Malcolm Hamilton presented himself as a home-grown athlete who reached the pros and then built a life as a successful businessman. These experiences, he said, qualiﬁed him to represent Odessa’s District 1. “I’m used to dealing with pressure,” Hamilton said in an October interview. “I have experience in investment banking. I have experience in business. I have experience in negotiations, and that’s what a lot of this is about. It’s about being a liaison as well as a good communicator and I think I bring that to the table.” But a closer look at Hamilton’s life presents a more nuanced picture at a time when the councilman ﬁnds himself amid ongoing controversy. He was a star high school athlete who achieved an improbable rise to become a professional football player. His time in the National Football League was short lived. And it was followed by ﬁnancial trouble and a series of career changes — including a stint in a sales role at a brokerage ﬁrm but not a job as an investment banker who raises capital for companies or other entities. All led up to Hamilton’s return to Odessa and his pursuit of another longheld goal — winning public ofﬁce. >> See HAMILTON Page 7A

From its recruiting trip to Chihuahua, Mexico, March 6 and 7, Ector County Independent School District offered letters of intent to 10 people with more candidates to come. The job fair came about with help from the Odessa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and ofﬁcials in Chihuahua. Chief Human Resource
Officer Keith Garinger said the event attracted a little more than 120 people, which matches the number of vacancies at ECISD. Selling points for the district are starting salary of $44,500 plus incentives, and available housing at two properties owned by the school district. The cost of the trip was expected to be about $15,000. The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce provided $2,000.
The mayor of Chihuahua provided transportation during the trip. International Teacher Coordinator Nelly Jimenez previously said that typically when the district recruits at a Texas university, the cost is $2,000. About 60 of those 120 were teachers in Mexico. Garinger said the district has three stages of interviews and candidates went through varying numbers of those. The third stage is visiting with principals, department heads or directors in Odessa. “We had technology there. We ended up having inter-
views through Skype,” Garinger said. Out of the 60, ECISD offered letters of intent to 10 people who are expected to start work at ECISD next fall, he said. Garinger said most of them have their master’s degree and all have experiencing teaching. Three teachers were hired for Odessa High School, an English teacher for Ector Middle School, an English teacher for Crockett Middle School and a bilingual teacher at Cameron Dual Language Magnet, Garinger said. >> See ECISD Page 6A

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MARATHON, FLA. Authorities say a drunken man from Rhode Island stole a forklift and crashed into a gate, telling deputies he lost his car keys and needed something to drive. Quinton was quoted as saying that after he lost his keys Thursday night, he needed a vehicle and took the forklift from a Marathon marina because he knew how to drive one. Quinton also told deputies he could ﬁx the damaged gate. Breath tests showed Quinton’s blood-alcohol level was twice Florida’s legal limit.

Now-ﬁred U.S. attorney boasts of ‘absolute independence’ Democratic lawmaker calls for summary of probes on Trump THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
>> More on Joon H. Kim: tinyurl.com/ h7mfpl4
NEW YORK A Manhattan federal prosecutor who says “absolute independence” was his touchstone for more than seven years as he battled public corruption announced he was ﬁred Saturday after he refused a request a day earlier to resign. Preet Bharara, 48, made the announcement on his personal Twitter account after it became widely known hours earlier that he did not intend to step down in response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ request that leftover appointees of former President Barack Obama quit. “I did not resign. Moments ago I was ﬁred,” Bharara said in the tweet. In a statement hours later,
he said: “Serving my country as U.S. Attorney here for the past seven years will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life, no matter what else I do or how long I live. One hallmark of justice is absolute independence, and that was my touchstone every day that I served.” He said Joon H. Kim will serve as acting U.S. attorney in his absence. The Justice Department late Saturday conﬁrmed Bharara was no longer U.S. attorney but declined to expound. Spokeswoman Nicole Navas declined comment. Just over three months ago, then-President-elect Donald Trump asked Bharara to remain as U.S. attorney in Manhattan and Bharara told reporters after the Trump Tower meeting that he had agreed to do so. Bharara was appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2009. In frequent
public appearances, Bharara has decried public corruption after successfully prosecuting over a dozen state lawmakers, Democrats and Republicans alike. Sessions’ decision to include Bharara’s name on the list of 46 resignations of holdovers from the Obama administration surprised Manhattan prosecutors. While it is customary for a new president to replace virtually all of the 93 U.S. attorneys, it often occurs at a slower pace. Sessions lost his position as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama in a similar sweep by then-Attorney General Janet Reno in 1993. Meanwhile, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the House Judiciary Committee’s top Democrat, requested Saturday that the committee receive a summary of probes linked to Trump, whether they touch on his administra-

President Donald Trump said Saturday that the U.S. Secret Service did a “phenomenal job” apprehending a “troubled person” who got onto the White House grounds after climbing a fence on the east side of the property while Trump was inside the executive mansion. It was the ﬁrst known security breach at the White House since Trump took office nearly two months ago. The Secret Service said in a statement that the individual, whom it did not identify, was arrested on the south grounds without further incident after climbing an outer perimeter fence near the Treasury Department and East Executive Avenue at about 11:38 p.m. Friday. No hazardous materials were found during a search of a backpack the individual carried over the fence, the agency said. “Secret Service did a fantastic job last night,” Trump said Saturday from his golf club in Northern Virginia. Trump described the intruder as a “troubled person” and “very sad.” He was briefed on the matter Friday night.

He said President Donald Trump would lean on

Rand Paul, who has called the initial draft “Obamacare Lite.” Even before the legislation was released, Paul placed a copy machine outside the room where House Republicans were drafting the bill and asked for a copy — all to draw attention to the secrecy of the plan. GOP Gov. Matt Bevin has said his state cannot afford to pay for a growing Medicaid program, which has cost Kentucky millions more than initially expected and now covers

councilman abusing the position he has held for little more than three months. Hamilton has refused to answer questions from the Odessa American since Feb. 22. Prior to threatening the charity, the councilman tried to use his inﬂuence to intervene in the Jan. 6 arrest of a 23-year-old man at the Ector County Courthouse, County Attorney Dusty Gallivan conﬁrmed Thursday. “It is inappropriate for an elected ofﬁcial as said elected ofﬁcial to inﬂuence the outcome of a criminal case,” Gallivan said. “If he was acting in his capacity as the kid’s dad or the victim in the case, that would be totally different. But he was acting in his capacity as an elected ofﬁcial, nothing else.”
MORE ISSUES As with the threat to the Salvation Army, the account from the Ector County Courthouse described Hamilton invoking his position in an attempt to inﬂuence something outside of his purview as a city ofﬁcial. The majors at the Salvation Army declined to comment for this story. Major Dolores Watts said the charity does not comment on political matters. But Mayor David Turner confirmed that someone reported the Salvation Army visit by Hamilton to him. The mayor said he did not know details of the encounter and declined to comment on speciﬁcs. In Leofﬂer’s telling, the major explained to Hamilton that the use of a washer and dryer are not services the charity is able to guarantee. The donated washer was broken and they continue to struggle to replace it. Watts also invited Hamilton to tour the shelter. But Hamilton said he had to go “out of town next week” and would have to talk to Salvation Army ofﬁcials once he returned, Leofﬂer said. That still hasn’t happened. The episode detailed by Leofﬂer occurred Jan. 20. That night, Hamilton would begin a 12-day trip to Minneapolis billed to taxpayers despite only one record of city business on one day of the trip. A day after returning, Odessa police would pull Hamilton over in front of his home, leading to an explosive reaction by the councilman that included him saying “I am your boss” to ofﬁcers he berated and cursed. By the time the ﬁrst OA story broke on Feb. 26, Hamilton was publicly calling for the ﬁring of City Manager Richard Morton, who kept his job after a lengthy closed door session on Feb. 28. Then Hamilton subsequently followed up with evidence-free allegations of corruption in city government and a conspiracy involving fellow council members and upper level city employees to silence him. Hamilton wrote in a Facebook post that the OA wrote stories about him because it fell “under the inﬂuence” of “a few within the city Government who have something to lose” by him questioning the Odessa Development Corporation, which is part of the city, and the make-up of the board of Grow Odessa, which is a not-for-proﬁt business league that develops industrial park land in Hamilton’s district for economic development and is not funded by taxpayers. He told a CBS 7 reporter in a text message that Turner, District 2 Councilman Dewey Bryant and City Manager Richard Morton “are involved an have much to hide. [sic]” Hamilton has yet to show any evidence to back up his claims. Hamilton also told the Houston Chronicle the week of Feb. 28 that the recent criticism was a form of “character assassination.” How has it come to this for District 1’s new representative? And where does he go from here?
IMPROPER INFLUENCE? The county attorney said he learned of Hamilton’s interference at the courthouse from staff after a reporter contacted him Wednesday evening.
CAN A CITY COUNCILMAN BE REMOVED? >> To remove a city councilperson it would take a recall petition by a voter from his district who ﬁles an afﬁdavit with the city secretary, but city ordinance would require any recall effort to have at least 2,000 signatures from within District 1 — almost as many people who voted in the November election. >> Malcolm Hamilton was a standout Permian High School football player who then played for the Baylor Bears and later was a pro football player. He was on the practice squads for the Atlanta Falcons and the Washington Redskins. He later made the Redskins teams and played six games until an injury ended his NFL career. “He intervened, starting asking questions — ‘Why is he getting arrested?’ — this and that,” Gallivan said. “The ofﬁcer that was involved indicated that he (Hamilton) was throwing his weight around.” Specifically, Gallivan said Hamilton informed the ofﬁcer of his position on the City Council and presented him with a business card identifying him as a councilman. The county attorney declined to identify the ofﬁcer, saying “I don’t want him to get involved in this.” But Gallivan identified the man whose arrest Hamilton sought to prevent as Joed Amoyaw, and public records show the warrant was issued after Amoyaw failed to show up for a court date about a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge. Amoyaw would not have faced arrest had he shown up to court when he was originally supposed to, Gallivan said. Regardless, the county attorney said, “Mr. Hamilton has no business sticking his nose into a criminal case where he doesn’t belong.” The county attorney stopped short of describing Hamilton’s actions as an “abuse of ofﬁce,” which is a criminal offense in Texas — “but it was pretty close,” Gallivan said. Defense Attorney Justin Low, who had no role in Amoyaw’s case but had heard about Hamilton’s courthouse visit, said the councilman’s attempt to privately inﬂuence the public servant about a court matter could amount to “improper inﬂuence,” which is a different criminal offense. “He is trying to inﬂuence the outcome of the proceedings based on something other than the law, which is his status as a city councilman,” Low said. “It’s a Class A misdemeanor ... The elements of the offense appear to be there.” But Gallivan said he does not believe Hamilton’s interference with the arrest amounted to a criminal act because he was not inﬂuencing a “proceeding” as described in the law. “I don’t see it that way,” Gallivan said. “It wasn’t before a court. Nothing was being determined.”
‘I’M NOT HERE TO BUMP HEADS’ The night of Nov. 8, the justelected Hamilton pledged to start immediately on an array of projects for his district. He had campaigned on his ability to communicate fresh ideas for Odessa’s southern district, along with his ability to get along with fellow government ofﬁcials to pursue citizens’ needs. “I’m not here to bump heads,” Hamilton said in an Oct. 5 interview. “I’m here to fall in line with what we are already doing and integrate what I would like to see in District 1, integrate that with Odessa, the greater plan.” Major priorities included economic development and community building through strategies like youth programs in an area he said lags behind the progress of greater Odessa. He supported the city’s investments in redeveloping downtown, which falls in his district, and wanted to extend those types of investments to south Odessa. To win his seat, Hamilton beat Jo Ann Davenport Littleton, a community activist who held the seat in the 1990s. Hamilton received 1,189 votes compared to Davenport Littleton’s 923. He was the only candidate to raise money in the race, collecting about $2,000 in political contributions as of Oct. 31 — most of them donations under $50. Donors included two former council members, Jimmy Goates and Bill Cleaver, who represented District 1 after Davenport Littleton.
Another supporter was Gene Collins, a longtime community activist who Hamilton appointed Feb. 28 to the ODC. In a brief interview, Collins declined to discuss either Hamilton’s behavior or reports by the OA, dismissing the newspaper as biased. Cleaver also dismissed coverage by the OA in a brief interview during the Feb. 28 City Council meeting, saying “he’s great. He’s doing a good job.” But Goates, a former District 2 councilman who lives outside of Hamilton’s district, was more critical about the freshman councilman’s behavior. “I backed him originally because like I told you the last time we talked: I felt like it was the time for a younger person to get involved, and I thought his background matched,” Goates said. “But I didn’t realize that he was going to have some personal problems and get in the situation he is in. I think it all can be resolved if Mr. Hamilton just goes back to using his common sense.”
THE SHOUTS AT CITY HALL In the week leading up to the election, the campaign for District 1 had turned heated. Hamilton described his opponent as ineffective and disliked. “You might know how to operate inside, but at the same time you are unwelcome,” Hamilton told the OA days before the election, referring to his opponent. “Not even your district wants you. They are tired. They are ready for change.” But once on the job as District 1 councilman, Hamilton would soon ﬁnd conﬂict. By the beginning of February, multiple sources began talking about a confrontation between Hamilton and City Manager Morton at City Hall. Hamilton conﬁrmed elements of the incident in a recent TV interview and called for Morton’s ouster at the Feb. 28 City Council meeting. Hamilton told KMID-TV he approached the city manager about building a community center in front of Hays Elementary, and a separate source conﬁrmed this to the OA. “He walked in the door saying, ‘No, we don’t have the money’ and I called him out on it and said, ‘Yeah we do have the money’,” Hamilton told the news station. In actuality the city manager can only recommend a project like a community center. The city council is the body that decides to fund and build one. Hamilton conﬁrmed a heated meeting with Morton in early February but declined to discuss then what happened with the OA, saying “it’s about a whole bunch of stuff that’s unethical and not right.” The OA asked Morton on Feb. 8 about the rumored shouting match. “I didn’t get in a shouting match,” Morton said, and then, asked specifically if the pair was physically separated, he repeated: “I did not get in a shouting match. I got yelled at. But no, I really don’t want to comment.” Asked about speciﬁc allegations the OA learned Hamilton had made, Morton replied: “No, he’s — I really shouldn’t say anything. I mean he’s a new council member. He’s trying to ﬁnd his footing. He’s very passionate. And he’s got doubts about, I mean you hear him. He’s got doubts about ODC, OIDC
(the former name of Grow Odessa). I mean, you name it. He’s just suspicious.” Morton declined Friday to comment for this story. Hamilton during the KMIDTV interview said that “a lack of cooperation” followed the confrontation and a “sarcastic atmosphere and a tone that’s just become so toxic.” Hamilton also said he had been “told by employees” — of cases when the city manager “intimidated” and “threatened” city staff, “bullying them.” Hamilton hasn’t provided any evidence of that claim.
IS HE GOING TO HAVE THE SUPPORT? In the wake of Hamilton’s controversies, his former opponent said she feared her district would be again left without an effective representative on the City Council. “This is an elected ofﬁcial,” Davenport Littleton said. “These are people that we elect to represent us, to help us. And I feel that Malcolm can help us. I do. I feel like he can. But so far all the negative publicity that our district is getting, it’s just not good. I hate it.” Hamilton needs to work with fellow council members to pursue his goals for the district, Davenport Littleton said. And to do that, she said, he needs to build trust with them. “You know it takes three votes to get anything done,” Davenport Littleton said. “That’s politics. And now that all of this has happened, I’m just worried. I’m just worried. When Malcolm wants to get something done, is he going to have the support to get something done? And what bothers me is our district. We are going to suffer because of this.” Still, Davenport Littleton added, “it can be ﬁxed.” As it stands, Hamilton’s position is secure. And removing him would be difﬁcult. That would take a recall in which a voter from his district ﬁles an afﬁdavit with the city secretary making the demand for his removal. The recall would require at least 2,000 signatures from within District 1 — almost as many people as who voted in November. If the petition got enough signatures, Hamilton would have ﬁve days to resign or face a recall election. Since news of Hamilton’s controversial trip, his traffic stop and his calls for Morton’s job, fellow city council members have mostly fallen silent. Hamilton eventually repaid the city $310.04 to cover the ﬂight change of his more than $2,100 taxpayer-funded trip to
A copy of the front page of the Odessa American from July 28, 1992, features stories about a riot at the Whataburger restaurant on Eighth Street. Minneapolis despite claiming in an earlier CBS 7 interview that “there is no misuse of taxpayers’ dollars.” Hamilton also denied wrongdoing in the trafﬁc stop he described as “illegal,” despite a police review that found ofﬁcers acted properly. His ticket was ultimately dismissed. In their limited comments, some fellow council members sought to allay worries that District 1 would be left behind. “We are going to continue to be there for them, and my door’s always open,” the mayor, elected to represent the entire city, said. Turner and District 4 Councilman Mike Gardner also made general comments about public ofﬁcials being held to a higher standard, the importance of treating rank-and-ﬁle employees with respect and the need to be responsible with public money. “The City Council is going to function like it’s supposed to function — irregardless,” Gardner said. “We may not always agree on everything but we are going to do what’s right.” Gaven Norris, an attorney who grew up in District 1 and still works in the area, said he still supports Hamilton’s plans for the district and his passion. “I think everyone is just looking at it,” Norris said. “I think the situation — not just from what’s being reported about Malcolm but maybe all the parties involved are probably giving the city a black eye. And maybe the parties involved can sit down and ﬁnd a way to resolve it.” Goates, for his part, said Hamilton needs to understand he is “not anyone’s boss” and learn more about the duties of a city councilman, setting policy with fellow council members. “He is a very bright individual,” Goates said. “I think he will do much better once he truly understands how the system works.” Goates said he has not talked to Hamilton since he assumed ofﬁce but would help him if asked. “I don’t know what’s happening with Mr. Hamilton,” Goates said. “But all City Council people should have a decorum that they don’t try to push their weight around.” >> Full disclosure: The OA supports the Salvation Army yearly through the Empty Stocking Fund, and OA Editor Laura Dennis is a board member.

Twin blasts kill 40 near religious sites in Syria’s capital Footage shows blood-soaked streets, damaged buses COST PLUSFOOD SUPERMARKET COST PLUS STORE
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT Twin blasts Saturday near holy shrines frequented by Shi’ites in the Syrian capital Damascus killed at least 40 people and wounded more than a hundred, most of them Iraqis, according to Syrian and Iraqi ofﬁcials. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks. Islamic State militants have carried out similar attacks before against Shi’ite shrines in the Syrian capital and elsewhere. Extremist Sunni groups, such as IS, view Shi’ites as apostates and consider shrines a form of idolatry. Syrian State TV aired footage from the scene showing blood-soaked streets and several damaged buses in a parking lot, apparently where the explosions went off near Bab al-Saghir cemetery. The cemetery is one of Damascus’ most ancient and is where several prominent religious ﬁgures are buried. Interior Minister Mohammed al-Shaar visited the wounded in local hospitals. He said 40 were killed and 120 were wounded. He said the attacks targeted civilians, including Arab visitors, who were touring area’s shrines. Iraq’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that at least 40 Iraqis were killed and 120 wounded. Ministry

Blood-soaked streets and several damaged buses are what remain in a parking lot at the site of an attack by twin explosions on Saturday in Damascus, Syria. spokesman Ahmed Jamal said buses carrying Iraqi pilgrims to the shrines were targeted. He said a crisis response team has been formed to expedite the identiﬁcation and transport of the killed and wounded. “The ministry calls on the international community to condemn this heinous terrorist crime that targeted civilian Iraqi visitors to the holy shrines. It also urges a ﬁrm and decisive stand against the takﬁri groups responsible for them,” Jamal said in a statement. Takﬁri is an Arabic derogatory term referring to extremist Sunni Muslims — such as members of the Islamic State group — who accuse other Muslims of being inﬁdels. Iraqi, Iranian and other Asian Shi’ites often visit shrines in Syria. U.N. Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Syria Ali al-Za’tari condemned the attacks, saying “targeting civilians is a terrorist act, condemned and
rejected by anyone who has a conscience in this world.” Lebanon’s Hezbollah group also condemned the attacks, saying they stem from a “Takfiri ideology that uses religion as a cover to stab religion and believers everywhere.” There were conflicting reports about what caused the explosions. State news agency SANA said the blasts were caused by bombs placed near the cemetery and that at least 33 were killed and more than a hundred wounded. Lebanon’s Al-Manar TV quoted Syrian ofﬁcials saying twin suicide attacks killed 40. The military media arm of Hezbollah, Lebanon’s militant group close to Damascus, said two suicide bombers blew themselves up 15 minutes apart near the shrines, leading to the large number of casualties. Arab TV Al-Mayadeen, airing the conflicting reports, also said at least 40 were killed. The area was sealed after the explosions.

ECISD >> From Page 1A
Three other teachers were hired that will be assigned to campuses. They include a bilingual elementary teacher, a special education elementary teacher and an upper grades elementary teacher. A letter of interest also was issued to a speech therapist in special education, which Garinger said is unique. “We had eight strong candidates that we’re going to follow up with. They were all teachers. We just couldn’t get them in front of a principal to Skype. Then we had six strong, strong teachers, but they’re going to need to pass the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language),” Garinger said. He added that the delegation also saw more than 40 other candidates, some of whom had taught and some who had not and would need to look into alternative certiﬁcation. Garinger said the group of nine from ECISD didn’t travel to Mexico to talk to people about alternative certiﬁcation, but there were so many candidates who were in other professions seeking information that they couldn’t just turn the candidates away. The Odessa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce approached ECISD in October to ask if the district would be interested in trying to organize a job fair in Chihuahua. A small group of ECISD ofﬁcials traveled to Chihuahua in December to meet with university officials and they were “super supportive,” Garinger said. He added that there are 15 universities in Chihuahua. There is a tri-city agreement between Odessa, Chihuahua, Chihuahua Mexico, and Los Mochis, Sinaloa Mexico. Garinger offered kudos to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, their representative in Chihuahua, Xavier Gonzalez, and the city of Chihuahua. He added that four departments helped in the job fair effort – communications, which created a video; public relations which spent both days helping get people where they needed to be for an interview or gather information; and the nine ECISD officials were picked up at the airport by two ﬁremen. “They had a truck for our luggage and a van for us. They drove us to the hotel, and yesterday (March 8) the same thing,” Garinger said. Garinger said the team from ECISD that traveled south was “extremely strong, extremely experienced.” “ … We all had a role to play and everyone played their role. It was a great team effort. We were busy those two days,” Garginer said. Jimenez said it was thought there would be more people who weren’t qualiﬁed to teach, but that wasn’t the case. A beneﬁt of having teachers from Mexico is that some have family in Odessa or the area and the dialect of Spanish spoken in Odessa is typically the same area the teachers come from. Garinger noted that al-
OAOA.COM though they are bringing 10 teachers to ECISD, just as importantly, they networked. “ … Here in another year, year and a half, we’ll be able to harvest those seeds that we sowed in terms of building relationships, putting out information and letting people know down in Chihuahua that we’re interested in great teachers coming and working with our students,” Garinger said. While the district still has plenty of vacancies, bringing in teachers from Chihuahua will help make a dent. Garinger said the district has hired 100 teachers from Spain over the last five years and is planning another trip there this summer. The trips to Spain have focused on finding elementary bilingual teachers, whereas the trip to Mexico wasn’t necessarily focused on bilingual, but more on people who could teach core subjects such as math, science, language arts and social studies. He said the most important piece of the Chihuahua trip was the passion the prospective teachers had for students and professional development. The next steps will be to set up a second annual job fair next spring. Garinger said discussions already have started about a date and venue. “Our venue was a little outside of the downtown area and it’s our understanding that many people rely on public transportation, so we want to have something that’s more centrally located,” he said. A small group of ECISD officials also will visit more universities to continue to get the ECISD message out, provide information and network. Garinger said it’s always been tough to ﬁnd teachers in West Texas and now it’s also difﬁcult along the I-35 corridor in cities like Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston. “ … And for years it’s been tough to ﬁnd math, science, special education, (and) bilingual (teachers), but nowadays it’s getting tough to ﬁnd all subject areas and part of that reason is student enrollment is increasing across the state. But if you look at enrollment of college-age freshmen entering colleges of education, that number is decreasing,” Garinger said. Additionally, within ﬁve years about half of the teachers hired at districts are out of education. “We’ve got lots of teachers. They just don’t want to teach anymore, so it’s going to become critical. And as we in Odessa already know, it is critical and it’s harder and harder to ﬁnd candidates to teach. … I know there are people who are going to criticize our philosophy on that. Like I said, you can’t teach passion, you can’t teach enthusiasm and you can’t teach love of kids.” “And you know what, if I can ﬁnd somebody that has passion and enthusiasm and love for our kids, I don’t care if I’ve got to (go to) Timbuktu. I’m going to go ﬁnd them,” Garinger added.

Abbott declares six Texas counties disaster areas after wildﬁres THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN Gov. Greg Abbott has declared six Texas Panhandle counties disaster areas following deadly wildﬁres. Abbott issued the proclamation Saturday to help clear the way for government assistance in Gray, Hemphill, Lipscomb, Ochiltree, Roberts and Wheeler counties. A statement from Abbott says Texas ofﬁcials have asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a disaster designation to activate the agency’s
emergency loan program. The funds would be used to help eligible farmers and ranchers rebuild and recover from losses sustained by the wildﬁres. Ofﬁcials say wildﬁres killed four people and burned an estimated 750 square miles in Texas, displacing about 10,000 cattle and horses. Abbott on Thursday suspended some permit requirements and transportation restrictions so hay for livestock could more quickly reach ranches.

S. Koreans celebrate Park’s removal Opponents, supporters divide streets with rallies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA A day after a court removed her from power over a corruption scandal, ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye maintained her silence on Saturday as her opponents and supporters divided the capital’s streets with massive rallies that showed a nation deeply split over its future. Park has been unseen and unheard from since the Constitutional Court’s ruling on Friday, which ended a power struggle that had consumed the nation for months. Park, whose fate was left in the court’s hands after her parliamentary impeachment in December, has yet to vacate the presidential Blue House, with her aides saying they need more time to prepare for her return to her private home in Seoul. Carrying flags and candles and cheering jubilantly, tens of thousands of people occupied a boulevard in downtown Seoul to celebrate Park’s ouster. Meanwhile, in a nearby grass square, a large crowd

of Park’s supporters glumly waved national ﬂags near a stage where organizers, wearing red caps and military uniforms, vowed to resist what they called a “political assassination.” Police had braced for violence between the two crowds after three people died and dozens were injured in clashes between police and Park’s supporters after the ruling on Friday. Nearly 20,000 police ofﬁcers were deployed on Saturday to monitor the protesters, who were also separated by tight perim-
eters created by hundreds of police buses. The anti-Park protesters shouted “The candles have won!” and “Arrest Park Geun-hye!” as they began marching toward the Blue House. The protesters, who held candles during their massive evening demonstrations in recent months, loosely call themselves the Candle Force. The court’s decision capped a stunning fall for the country’s ﬁrst female leader. Park rode a wave of lingering conservative nostalgia for her late dic-
tator father to victory in 2012, only to see her presidency crumble as millions of furious protesters ﬁlled the nation’s streets. While the ruling might have irrevocably derailed Park’s political career, analysts saw deﬁance in her silence, saying that Park was perhaps hoping to use the growing anger of her followers to rebuild support. “By being quiet, she’s making it loud and clear that she won’t accept the court’s ruling,” said Yul Shin, a professor at Seoul’s Myongji University.

Hamilton >> From Page 1A
A LONGTIME GOAL Even nearly 20 years ago, Hamilton aspired to hold public ofﬁce and shared this goal with the Odessa American when he was on the cusp of playing in the NFL. “Actually, I want to come back to Odessa and be mayor,” Hamilton told a reporter back then. “I really do. That’s something I’ve really thought a lot about. I love Odessa. This is my home.” Months later, in September 1997, Hamilton signed for the Washington Redskins practice squad. Ultimately, Hamilton would play six games in the NFL before an injury in a Redskins game ended his NFL career. During his 2016 campaign, Hamilton described his time as a pro athlete as a formative experience. And so would some of his supporters, like former District 2 Councilman Jimmy Goates, who saw that experience as helpful for a prospective councilman. “If you don’t learn teamwork in the NFL you don’t learn it anywhere and those are the types of things that I thought would help him out,” Goates, a fellow Baylor University alum, said. After recovering from his injury, Hamilton played in the short-lived XFL for an Alabama-based team and for Arena Football League teams in New Jersey and California, last playing professionally in 2002.
AFTER THE NFL Public records from this period, and in the years that followed, reveal Hamilton moved often. He worked at least 12 jobs during the past 10 years and faced a series of ﬁnancial troubles. In 2002, when Hamilton was living in Alexandria, Va., Virginia Management Inc. ﬁled an eviction suit against him. The State of California sued Hamilton in 2004 for $5,751 in back taxes. In 2009, when Hamilton was living in Dallas, the federal government ﬁled a tax lien on him for $5,767. And a year before Hamilton said he moved back to Odessa from Minneapolis, records show Willow Valley Limited Partnership ﬁled another eviction suit against him when he was living in an apartment. Hamilton said during his campaign that he lived in Minneapolis for about four years and moved back to Odessa in 2013. Before his time in Minneapolis he said he worked as a “salesman for oil and gas operators.” In Minneapolis, he worked stints for a debt collection company and buying and selling precious coins for a commission before ﬁnding an ad one day in the newspaper. “That’s when I got into investment banking,” Hamilton said. Hamilton said he was the managing director of “the interview advisory
LOCAL sector” of a “startup” company, known as a direct participation program. It was a sales role. And per Hamilton’s LinkedIn page, the company was BrokerBank Securities and its DBA Redhawk Investment Advisors, and records show he worked there for about a year and eight months. “Of course we struggled a little bit,” Hamilton said in the Oct. 5 interview. “I was stressed out trying to get it going. I had to train everybody on what to say, what not to say, what’s a good oil and gas deal. Me and the CEO we would bang heads every day... And I was just getting a lot of feedback from my investors. They said ‘Malcolm, really we are kind of leery of the fact the investment company is way in Minneapolis, Minnesota but the oil and gas wells you are investing in are in Texas.’ I said, ‘You know what? You are right.’ ”
‘I CAME HERE TO DO BUSINESS’ It was work Hamilton said he liked. And, Hamilton said in October, he wanted to move back home and work in “investment banking in oil and gas.” “I came here to do business,” Hamilton said. “I ultimately want to open up my own oil and gas advisory company.” More than three years after his move, Hamilton is not registered as an active broker, according to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which is a corporation that acts as a self-regulatory organization. As of October, Hamilton said he was studying for the Series 7 and another licensing exam that would allow him to trade more advanced ﬁnancial products as a stock broker. For now, BrokerBank Securities is the only company Hamilton has worked for as a registered broker, FINRA records show. Instead, Hamilton’s LinkedIn page lists a series of oilﬁeld jobs, mostly as a ﬁeld service technician during his time in Odessa. His page lists his most recent employer, from December 2014 to May 2016, as FMC Technologies. It’s unclear what Hamilton does for work now. He listed “oil and gas industry” as his occupation on the form he ﬁled with the city when he ran for councilman. He left the work number section blank and provided only his cell phone as his contact number. Today, the top job Hamilton lists on his LinkedIn proﬁle is his newest one: city councilman. City council members receive $10 per meeting they attend, capped at $50 per month.
and stepfather in elementary school. By high school, Hamilton’s football position coach Mike Belew would ﬁnd him “volatile,” with an “attitude and hostility” that Belew said he thought would limit the teenager despite his athletic prowess, according to a 1997 proﬁle of Hamilton published by the OA. But Belew also told the OA of the growth and change he observed in Hamilton. “He’s a kid that went from having a very limited chance of making it to being real successful,” Belew said in that 1997 OA article. “He’s real intelligent and mature, and he’s one of those turnarounds you sometimes see as a coach. I deﬁnitely think he epitomizes that. I always use him as an example to my coaches and players as a kid who never gives up.” Hamilton was a star Permian High running back for a Mojo team that won state championships. His ability earned him a Baylor University athletic scholarship, where his performance on the ﬁeld would earn him a chance at the pros. But it almost didn’t happen.
A RIOT AND A SECOND CHANCE In July 1992, before his ﬁrst year in college, Hamilton was arrested during a riot at Whataburger. The riot, involving some 200 people, sparked a dialogue among politicians and community activists about minority policing in the city at a time when the country as a whole was reeling from the Rodney King beating. The coordinator of the Police Athletic League, where Hamilton volunteered, told the newspaper then that “one of the main people involved in this is Malcolm.” But the coordinator, Cpl. Henry Jackson, said Hamilton’s continued volunteer work helped kids process the riot. Hamilton divulged his arrest during his campaign last year. He said he “got into a little scufﬂe with the police at Whataburger” but also told a reporter about the charges he faced afterward: aggravated assault of a police ofﬁcer, inciting a riot and resisting arrest. Hamilton said he had “never been in any other trouble since” and a public records search found no other criminal record. In 1997, Hamilton offered this account about his “real stupid” behavior and said he later apologized to police: “I was just trying to break up a ﬁght,’’ Hamilton said. “A girl I was seeing at the time got involved, and a cop hit her with a ﬂashlight. I was just trying to stop him from hitting her again, and I grabbed his arm to stop him. There were a lot of people out there, so I think it was just a reaction-type
thing, but he punched me. Like I say, I don’t think it was really intentional because I’m sure he was scared and it was just a reaction. But I reacted, too, and punched him back.’’ Hamilton went to Baylor University as he awaited trial. And other prominent Odessans vouched for him. On Election Day, supporter Gene Collins, a community activist through groups including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he “helped him to get into Baylor” by talking with the school’s head football coach after the riot. The felony charges were dropped, and Hamilton was ultimately convicted of misdemeanor resisting arrest and given six months of deferred adjudication that he served at Baylor. His performance as a linebacker for Baylor led to his opportunity in the NFL. In his best and ﬁnal college year, Hamilton played in all 11 games for the Bears, ﬁnishing with 45 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble, according to OA archives. “Everybody called me Dirty Mal,’’ Hamilton told the newspaper in 1997. “I admit it. I’m a dirty player. I’d bite, scratch, claw and kick, anything to get an edge. When I’m on the ﬁeld I’m a completely different person than when I’m off it. It’s like you’re aggravating me to be in my presence.” Hamilton graduated from Baylor in December 1996.
A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE The wait lasted hours on Election Day before Hamilton learned he won the race for District 1 councilman, realizing a dream he held for decades. “The people spoke,” Hamilton said that night. “They said they are ready for something new. Plain and simple.” That was before the ﬁrst few months — the grievances and suspicions about other city ofﬁcials that Hamilton aired publicly without evidence, the curses he hurled at police during a trafﬁc stop, the controversial taxpayer funded trip to Minneapolis, or the threat to pull city funding from a charity that doesn’t get any. Among a handful of supporters in the Ector County Annex, Hamilton pledged that night to hit

the ground running in pursuit of “so many projects” aimed at making the south Odessa district better, like increased affordable access to the youth sports that helped shape him. With him on election night was Collins who said he was conﬁdent in the promise of the new councilman. Collins pointed to Hamilton’s broad range of experience and said the former pro football player’s background would help him connect with young people
as a role model. “He’s a product of the community,” said Collins, who Hamilton appointed Feb. 28 to the board of the Odessa Development Corporation and who did not respond to multiple messages left on his cell phone seeking comment for this article. “He sees even slum and blight through a different perspective with more passion because those are his folks ... Being a sports hero coming back to your home town, you have a sense of obligation.”

Because Everyone Deserves a Great Life!
Students take part in a role-playing game about the 1676 Bacon’s Rebellion last month in a class in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The university has staged re-enactments of historical events to help shed light on conﬂicting perspectives that led to great compromises.
As incivility hits new depths, many are working to combat it Summer camp aims to give children tools to show respect when in a disagreement THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK In state capitals, lawmakers attend workshops on how to avoid demonizing their opponents. On a college campus, students re-enact hard-fought debates that led to great compromises at the country’s founding. Even a summer camp is aiming to give children the tools to show respect in the face of disagreement. Americans alarmed and disheartened by a coarsened culture and incivility in politics — especially following a brutal presidential campaign season that bared new lows in both — are ﬁghting back with a range of initiatives around the U.S. to restore some semblance of decorum. “It’s incumbent on us to be the adults who push back against what we’re getting in the popular culture and the political rhetoric,” said Mary Evins, who directs the American Democracy Project for Civil Learning
at Middle Tennessee State University. That’s where students have staged classroom role-plays of compromises from the 1787 Constitutional Convention, assuming the parts of the Founding Fathers to act out the give-and-take required to reach agreement on crucial but difﬁcult decisions, such as how large and small states would share power. “There’s so many people with a difference of opinion,” said Brendon Holloway, who participated in various Democracy Project initiatives at Middle Tennessee State, including voter registration drives. “It’s really important to bridge the gap.” The school is training faculty to incorporate civic learning across disciplines, holding a lecture series on rhetoric, and hosting former members of Congress to talk about respectful dialogue. Evins says it’s all part of addressing not just college and career, but citizenship.

A poll by Zogby commissioned by Allegheny College in October found in the six years since its previous survey, signiﬁcantly more people viewed it as acceptable to interrupt, shout over, belittle, insult, personally attack or question the patriotism of those with differing opinions. Respondents also have grown more accepting of commenting on another’s sexual orientation, race or ethnicity.

MEDICAL MATTERS KEVIN BENSON >> Dr. Kevin Benson is a Board Certiﬁed Pediatrician for MCH Family Health Clinic.
llergies seem to be a big part of our lives here in West Texas. It seems that no matter what the season, or the symptoms, people tend to think it’s their allergies. Or is it? Does it matter? Environmental allergies are the body’s excessive response to things we need not respond too. For example, pollen is not really a threat to me, but my body responds to it in unhelpful ways. My nose ﬁlls with mucous, my eyes get red and itchy, that familiar cough makes its annual return. How do I know it’s my allergies versus a cold I may have been exposed to? >> History: Seasonal aller-
gies are just that, they occur at certain seasons. Everyone with allergies is a bit different, but most of us can predict the seasons where we will have trouble. Pollen allergies tend to be in the springtime, fall allergies tend to be more mold and mildew sensitivities, winter allergies are often caused by dust or dust mites blowing around as we turn on our heat. So with experience we know when it’s more likely to be allergies than a viral illness. And also why it’s difﬁcult to know in a baby or young child, since they haven’t had as many seasons of experience to know how they respond to
those environments. >> Duration: Allergies can linger for weeks, sometimes months. It is very unusual for a cold to last more than a week or two. Sometimes we can be fooled though, as we or our children are recovering from one illness and fall into the trap of another illness; what feels like one illness can be a few separate ones. However, it is common to have one viral infection after another, especially in the wintertime. >> Fevers: Allergies do not cause fevers. Fever is the body’s natural response to infection, and allergies are not an infection. However some
people will develop secondary infections due to allergies; for instance the congestion caused by seasonal allergies can trigger ear infections or sinus infections. That is why it is always a good idea to treat those allergic symptoms as soon as possible, to prevent them from becoming something more serious. Remember to use your judgment. If you’re not sure if you or your child has a cold or allergies and the symptoms are getting worse, changing or not improving, there’s no harm in consulting with your medical practitioner.

There are dolls and then there’s the one that tattoo artist PeeWee Morales, of Wichita, Kan., had on display at the booth he occupied Saturday at the third annual Ink Masters Tattoo Show. The three-day show began Friday and ends today. The doll resembled a stern-looking boy with a tattooed face, dressed in a Pendleton shirt, pleated black pants and a folded blue bandana draped over his left shoulder. “That’s my little minime,” Morales said as he was doodling on a note pad. “I bring the doll with me all the time.” Asked why he chose tattooing as his chosen occupation, Morales said he does it for the pleasure of watching others enjoy his work. “I like to do a good job, man,” Morales said. “I do it to get out there and make people happy.” Hundreds of other people were likewise happy during the annual event that turned Building G of the Ector County Coliseum into a virtual live-action display of color and sound where piercers

he beginning of the new year sees a rise in the divorce ﬁlings. A variety of reasons are given for why this happens, however, the bigger issue is what to do if we are going through a divorce or are recently divorced. How we view divorce can determine how we manage going through a divorce. Divorce does not make someone a bad person or damaged goods. Around the early 1960s about one out of every six marriages ended in divorce. Today, around half of all marriages end in divorce. Therefore, people can gain assurance knowing that others have gone through this expe-
rience. Also, a proper view of divorce is understanding and accepting that recovering from a divorce is a process. Divorce is a loss, and with any loss there is a grieving process. There is no way to rush this process. Grief is a natural response to loss. Experts consider going through a divorce and experiencing the death of a close friend or relative as similar grieving processes. This gives us the proper framework for effectively handling a divorce. We must make sure we go through the stages of grief, with acceptance being the ﬁnal step. Acceptance means we have accepted the mar-
riage has ended. We no longer have anger or depression when thinking about the relationship or our former spouse. Acceptance also means we have taken responsibility for rebuilding our own life and creating a new normal. This includes doing activities for personal enrichment and enjoyment, and socializing with others. Remember that our emotional well-being is important. Experts say people can remain stuck and take years to recovery, or never recover at all from their divorce if they are not willing to let go. Also, if children are involved, then the adjustment of the children to
the divorce will closely correlate to the adjustment of their parents to the post-divorce and creation of the new normal. Children are unlikely to be more adjusted than their parents. If you are struggling to reach the stage of acceptance or creating a new normal after a divorce, please contact Samaritan Counseling Center at 563-4144. Brian Wingﬁeld is a licensed marriage and family therapist and has more than eight years of experience working in the ﬁeld of behavioral health. Brian has been with Samaritan Counseling Center since May 2014.

Federal judges ﬁnd issues in Texas voting rights appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Republicans hold two of three congressional districts ruled newly invalid and were found to have been partly drawn with discriminatory intent. The GOP-controlled Texas Legislature approved the maps in 2011, the same year then-Gov. Rick Perry signed a voter ID law that ranks among the toughest in the U.S. Courts have since weakened that law, too. Judges noted the “strong racial tension and heated debate about Latinos, Spanish-speaking people, undocumented immigrants and sanctuary cities” that served as the backdrop in the Legislature to Texas adopting the maps and the voter ID law. Those tensions are ﬂaring again over President Donald Trump’s execu-

AUSTIN Federal judges found more problems in Texas’ voting rights laws, ruling that Republicans racially gerrymandered some congressional districts to weaken the growing electoral power of minorities, who former President Barack Obama set out to protect at the ballot box before leaving ofﬁce. The ruling late Friday by a three-judge panel in San Antonio gave Democrats hope of new, more favorably drawn maps that could turn over more seats in Congress in 2018. But the judges in their 2-1 decision didn’t propose an immediate ﬁx, and Texas could
tive orders on immigration, and Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is also demanding tough crackdowns on socalled sanctuary cities. “The record indicates not just a hostility toward Democrat districts, but a hostility to minority districts, and a willingness to use race for partisan advantage,” U.S. District Judges Xavier Rodriguez and Orlando Garcia wrote in their opinion. Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton did not immediately remark on the ruling. An attorney for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund welcomed Friday’s ruling. “The court’s decision exposes the Texas Legislature’s illegal effort to dilute the vote of Texas Latinos,” said
Nina Perales, the group’s vice president of litigation and lead counsel in the case. “Moving forward, the ruling will help protect Latinos from manipulation of district lines in order to reduce their political clout.” Hispanics were found to have fueled Texas’ dramatic growth in the 2010 census, the year before the maps were drawn, accounting for two out of every three new residents in the state. The ﬁndings of racially motivated mapmaking satisﬁed Democrats and minority rights groups, who are now pushing a separate federal court in Texas to determine that the voter ID law was also crafted with discriminatory intent. Texas was forced ahead of the November election to weaken its voter ID law, which allows concealed hand-

arch is Colon Cancer Awareness Month so let’s talk bowels! Colon cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer among men and women in the United States, but one of the few cancers that has a screening tool. It is recommended that the average adult should begin colon screenings at age 50. Since colonoscopies are not the most popular thing, it is not uncommon for people to avoid beginning screenings, but the procedure could very well save your life.
DON’T PUT OFF YOUR COLONOSCOPY Colon cancer is most commonly caused by an accumulation of abnormal cells called a polyp. Polyps can be found during a routine colonoscopy and removed before they become cancerous or in cancer’s early stages. The earlier colon cancer is found, the more easily it can be treated. So the question is: why avoid your colonoscopy? After all, the prep is the worst part. Symptoms and Risk Factors Symptoms of colon cancer can include unintentional weight loss, abdominal pain,
blood in your stool and changes in your bowel habits. Persistent symptoms should not be avoided. Talk with Dr. Sameer Islam about your symptoms and what testing may be right for you. Also talk with Dr. Islam about your risk factors for colon cancer. Common risk factors include being overweight, low ﬁber/high fat diet, sedentary lifestyle, being diabetic and older age. Don’t put off scheduling your colonoscopy any longer. This March make an appointment with your healthcare provider and ask about getting a colonoscopy.
Nicolasa ‘Nickie’ (Aguilar) Perez LUBBOCK Nicolasa Aguilar Perez, age 90, of Odessa, Texas passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on March 9, 2017, in Lubbock, Texas. Visitation will be held at Martinez Funeral Home on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 11am 9pm and Sunday, March 12, from 12pm 7pm. The Rosary will be Sunday at 7pm. Mass will be ofﬁciated by Father Frank Chavez on Monday, March 13, 2017 at 10am at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Burial will follow at Ector County Cemetery in Rosehill Garden. Arrangements are by Martinez Funeral Home and Crematory. Nickie was born in Slaton, Texas to Teodoro and Guadalupe Aguilar on September 10, 1926. She married Juan R. Perez in Clovis, New Mexico. She worked as a manager at Lee Optical for most of her career. Nickie generously devoted her life to nourishing the lives of others around her. It was rare for her to have an empty room in her house, as she was always willing to take in any family member in need. As a dedicated foster mother for twenty years, Nickie committed to providing not only a roof, but also love and support to children of all ages. She was also a loving grandmother who always loved and cared for her grandchildren while their parents were working. She will undoubtedly be remembered by her unrelenting strength and head strong independence. Nickie was preceded in
death by her parents, husband and sisters, Elizabeth Alvarado and Eloisa Alvarado and her Grandson, Jose Urias Jr. Those left to cherish her love and memories are: her four sons Johnny Perez Jr., Rudy Perez and wife, Belinda, Ruben Perez and wife, Annie, all of Odessa, and Robert Perez and wife, Leticia of Ft. Worth, her two daughters Alicia Perez Urias, Irene Nunez and husband Barney both of Odessa, her sisters Angela Todd, Barbara Cisneros, and Dora Sanchez all of Slaton, brothers Gilbert Flores of Lubbock and Raymond Flores of San Antonio, 13 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. Pallbearers will be Rudy Perez, Robert Perez, Ruben Perez, Barney Nunez, Robert Perez Jr., Ruben Perez Jr., Emilio Perez, Andy Perez, and Nicholas Arenivas. The family of Nicolasa Perez would like to extend our sincere gratitude to hospice of Lubbock and to everyone for their love and support in this difﬁcult time.
John Robert Snyder AUSTIN John Robert Snyder, 62, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 5, of complications related to ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). John was born December 31, 1954, in Victoria, Texas, to Joseph R. Snyder and Loyce Weathers Snyder. He was their only child. John is survived by his beloved wife of 39 years, Kathleen Sigle Snyder and their only son Karl Joseph Snyder of Minneapolis. From an early age, John was strongly attracted to music and books. He later went on to earn degrees in music, computer science, and philosophy at the University of Houston and the University of Washington in Seattle. John was an energetic and creative man, and he comfortably and gracefully ﬁlled the role of leader and teacher in spiritual and academic communities alike. In addition to being a devoted husband and father, he was an accomplished musician, composer, choir director, and computer scientist, an internationally recognized poet, and a Montessori elementary teacher, administrator, and lecturer. He was truly a unique Montes-
gun licenses but not college student IDs, after a federal appeals court found that the requirements particularly hampered minorities and the poor. The Obama administration had brought the muscle of the U.S. Justice Department into Texas to help challenge both the maps and voter ID law. But barely a month after Trump took ofﬁce, the federal government reversed course and announced it would no longer argue that Texas purposefully discriminated against minorities with its voter ID law. It was not yet clear whether the Trump administration will also drop opposition to Texas’ maps. But U.S. Circuit Judge Jerry Smith, in a blistering dissent, had strong words for Obama administration attorneys after they joined the case.

Kahle’s friend, Brittany Stewart, also of Midland, said she was going to get a design done on her as well. “Of course, this nut-ball talked me into getting a tattoo,” Stewart said. “And I don’t even have a piercing.” At another booth, Erin Escarsiga, of Odessa, was getting a unique tattoo design she dubbed a “zombee,” (or a bee that happens to be a zombie) done on her left thigh by tattooing maestro Danny Pando, also of Odessa. The work was expected to be done in four hours, he said. “I saw a magnet (with the design) years ago and talked about it in August (with Pando) and talked about doing it at the show,” Escarsiga said. Eric Parkey, a north Dallas resident, was also getting a tattoo at the show but this time it was an elaborate design on

his back. The design was, among other things, an hour-glass ﬁgure of images containing a woman’s face and darkened backdrop of trees in the distance. The amount of work was a labor of love for tattoo artist Spider Hernandez, of Ruidoso, N.M., since Parkey is a dedicated customer who came to Odessa’s tattoo show because he knew Hernan-
dez would be here. Parkey patiently waited for Hernandez to ﬁnish the tattoo while lying face down on a table, reading a copy of Clive Barker’s “Books of Blood, volumes one through three.” “Honestly, we’ve been on this one since 1 p.m.,” Hernandez said. “He’s had only one break, so far. Not because he needed it, but because I wanted it.”
Blinn College students help with cancer-ﬁghting research
SAN ANTONIO U.S. regulators ignored expert warnings that hot-air balloons like one that crashed in July in Texas, killing 16 people, have higher accident rates than other aircraft and similar fatality rates, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The newspaper relied on government documents and internal emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, as well as testimony given at a federal hearing on the hot air balloon crash near Lockhart. The balloon hit highvoltage power lines and crashed July 30, 2016. The Federal Aviation Administration doesn’t require balloon pilots to take drug tests or undergo medical evaluations like other pilots. It relies on an honor system that the pilot of the doomed balloon, Alfred “Skip” Nichols, foiled. Nichols obtained his bal-

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BRYAN In humble facilities tucked away on the Bryan campus of Blinn College, three students have had the opportunity to help one faculty member in developing what could be a new method of delivering cancer-ﬁghting drugs. The Eagle newspaper reports chemistry professor Sameh Abdelwahed said during the fall 2016 semester, students Kevin Hernandez, Sarah Jarwan and Jonathan Ayala-Rosa helped him to synthesize the drug and assist in the creation of presentation materials for the research. “I was very lucky to get three smart people working with me,” Abdelwahed said. “We can meet whenever we like and we (treat) it like fun. We don’t (treat) it like some kind of duty to ﬁnish.” Abdelwahed said the research is focused on using cancer cells’ need for a large amount of thiamine — also known as
vitamin B1 — as a way to deliver anti-cancer drugs into the desired cells. “What we did was we took the vitamin B1 and we took the (drug) and we put them together so that the cell was getting the vitamin B1, but it was also getting the drug,” AyalaRosa said. “It tricks (the cancer cell) into taking the drug.” Now that the compound has been developed, Abdelwahed said it will be sent to the National Cancer Institute in Maryland where ofﬁcials will evaluate its effectiveness. Hernandez said while working with Abdelwahed on a project with high potential was “intimidating,” it has been an honor to see the professor put his skills into action, describing the meticulous way he conducts his research as “like an art form.” “Sometimes I think he’s doing magic,” Hernandez said with a laugh. Looking forward, Abdelwahed said the re-

For Hernandez, Jarwan and Ayala-Rosa, each of the Blinn College students said they hope to take their experiences from the past semester and apply them to any new research opportunities they are able to participate in. “Research is so hard to get in your ﬁrst couple years of undergraduate schooling,” Jarwan said. “I’m passionate about (ﬁghting) cancer, so being able to be hands-on with work that could be affecting people’s lives already without being a doctor or anything — it’s nice to have that experience.”
loon pilot’s license in Missouri in 1996. At a National Transportation Safety Board hearing in Washington in December, medical experts testified Nichols was taking medications that should have precluded him from ﬂying. The Express-News’ analysis of federal aviation accident reports found that pilot error is the top cause of balloon crashes in the United States. Of more than 140 private and commercial balloon crashes since 2005, pilot error was listed as the cause in more than half, with nearly one in ﬁve involving a power line. Evidence shows Nichols did check an aviation weather service, was told clouds could be a problem but replied, “Well, we just ﬂy in between them.” Fifteen minutes into the launch, the balloon’s ground crew lost sight of it. More than three years before the deadly crash, Detroit-based FAA safety
inspector Wayne Phillips, a licensed balloon pilot, proposed increasing regulations for balloon operators that included drug tests for pilots. The NTSB formally sent its own recommendation to the FAA in 2014. “The potential for a high number of fatalities in a single air-tour balloon accident is of particular concern if air-tour balloon operators continue to conduct operations under less stringent regulations and oversight,” NTSB chairwoman Deborah Hersman wrote to FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. Seventeen months later, Huerta responded that increased oversight wasn’t necessary. The FAA, in a statement to the Express-News, said there was no guarantee drug tests would have detected Nichols’ prescription medications. “Even if the pilot would have had his medical (certiﬁcate) revoked, the FAA has no mechanism to constantly watch pilots 24/7, and then physically restrain them from taking ﬂight illegally,” the agency said.
RAYMONDVILLE A former tent-city prison largely destroyed in a 2015 inmate riot will be sold by a South Texas county to a private prison company in a move that could boost area employment. Willacy County commissioners approved the sale to Management and Training Corp., the Valley Morning Star reported. The Utah-based company has operated the prison since it opened in 2006.
The Willacy County Correctional Center in Raymondville was a 3,000bed minimum-security unit largely made up of tent-like domes. After the February 2015 riot, the unit was uninhabitable and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons canceled its contract with MTC. The closure of the prison led to 400 employee layoffs, slashing a third of Willacy County’s $8.1 million general fund budget. Commissioner Oscar DeLuna says the county agreed Tuesday to sell
the 53-acre facility for the amount owed on its bonds. MTC also will pay Willacy County $3 daily for each inmate to be held there. The county will also receive annual property tax revenue from the facility, though the amount is dependent on an appraisal. “It’s a great deal,” according to DeLuna. MTC plans to create about 275 jobs, said County Judge Aurelio Guerra. The sale could mean up to $450,000 in annual property tax revenue for the county.

BBB offers advice during National Credit Education Month
hen was the last time you checked your credit report? An annual review of your credit report is important to verify all outstanding debts and helpful in maintaining a strong defense against identity theft. In recognition of National Credit Education Month, Better Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin encourages you to be in control of your ﬁnances, and a big part of that is checking your credit report regularly. Your credit report has information about your ﬁnances, bill payments and bankruptcy history. Employers, insurers and other businesses use your credit report to evaluate your applications
for a credit card, loan, insurance or renting. In Texas, employers have the right to do credit checks using government-maintained databases; however, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires that employers give written notice that a credit check will be done. The FCRA requires each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies — Equifax, Experian and TransUnion — to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. To pull your free and government-authorized credit report, visit annualcredit report.com. The importance of pull-
ing your credit report is to ensure the information being reported is accurate, complete and up-to-date. According to the Federal Trade Commission, having a copy of your credit report helps guard against identity theft. When looking at your credit report, look for these red ﬂags of identity theft: >> Any inquiries not initiated by you; >> Any debts reported that are not yours; or >> Contact information such as your address, that is changed without your approval When pulling your annual credit report, BBB offers the following advice: >> Be wary of unsolicited emails and pop-ups. Beware of “imposter” websites that claim
to offer free credit reports or free credit scores. Only annualcreditreport.com is authorized to give you the free annual credit reports you’re entitled to by law. Also, annualcreditreport .com does not approach consumers via email, telemarketing or direct mail solicitations. >> Don’t give out your credit card number. Many websites like mint.com and creditkarma.com offer access to your free credit score for free and you don’t have to enter your credit card number at any time. However, if a site does require your credit card information before sharing your credit score, it could be a sign that it plans to charge you or enroll you in a monthly service, so you might want to
consider going elsewhere. >> Pull your children’s credit report. As child identity theft remains a national problem, it can be just as imperative to pull your child’s report as it is to pull your own. While the credit reporting agencies do not knowingly maintain credit ﬁles on minor children, you can contact the credit reporting agencies directly to see what information, if any, they have about your child to avoid a ﬁnancial mess for them in the future. >> Dispute inaccuracies. If you ﬁnd inaccurate information on your credit report, immediately contact the reporting agency you pulled the report from and ﬁle a dispute. Inaccurate, derogatory information can lower your credit score, and in some cases, may indicate fraudulent activity.

Owners have until Sept. 1, 2018, to seek a buyback, but many have already applied. VW has agreed to pay attorney fees and costs, including up to $324 million in fees and $8.5 million in out-of-pocket costs. The settlement also includes $2.9 billion for environmental mitigation and an additional $2 billion to promote zeroemissions vehicles.

GRAETTINGER, IOWA A federal safety ofﬁcial called on the rail industry to move faster to upgrade aging rail tankers following a fiery train derailment in rural Iowa that spilled ethanol into a creek and was still burning nearly two days after it erupted. A Union Pacific train hauling 99 tankers of ethanol from a producer in Omaha, Nebraska, derailed around 1 a.m. Friday on a trestle bridge spanning Jack Creek near Graettinger, about 160 miles northwest of Des Moines. It sent off the tracks 20 tanker cars considered by federal investigators as older, less sturdy tanks set to be phased out over the next dozen years. Fifteen of them caught ﬁre, National Transportation Safety Board member Robert Sumwalt said at a news conference Saturday evening. The train left from a plant in Superior, Iowa, heading for Texas City, Texas, he said. The derailment in Iowa happened miles from any communities, and no one was injured. The ﬁre occasionally sent explosions and ﬁreballs high into the
sky as highly flammable ethanol fumes poured from the ruptured tanks. NTSB ofﬁcials said that some of the tankers, which carry about 25,000 gallons each, had spilled ethanol into the creek, but environmental officials don’t believe it’s enough to be toxic to wildlife or ﬁsh. Iowa Natural Resources ﬁeld ofﬁce manager Kenneth Hessenius said Friday that checks of water downstream found no obvious signs of a spill. Two tankers were still burning by 7 p.m. Saturday, Sumwalt said. He said the train consisted solely of an older type of car known as the DOT-111. The agency deemed that tanker a hazard as far back as 1991, noting its steel shell is too thin to resist puncture in accidents. The ends are especially vulnerable to tears from couplers that can ﬂy up after ripping off between cars. Sumwalt said few crude oil shippers now use the older tankers, after recent emphasis in the industry about the danger of it. “But meanwhile, people have forgotten about the potential hazard of transporting ethanol using these
cars,” he said. “We would like to see the shippers accelerate their schedule to get these legacy DOT-111 tank cars out of service when transporting flammable liquids — speciﬁcally crude oil and ethanol.” There have been at least seven signiﬁcant accidents involving trains hauling ethanol since 2006 that released a combined 2 million gallons of the fuel. “God forbid this happens in a community or with people sitting in their cars waiting for the train to go by. It’s not like we haven’t seen that kind of tragedy before,” said Karen Darch, co-chair of an Illinois-based coalition of local ofﬁcials, called TRAC, that has pushed for rail safety enhancements. The group was formed after a 2009 derailment of ethanol tankers killed a woman at a crossing in Cherry Valley, Illinois. Darch is village president of neighboring Barrington, Illinois.

VW previously agreed to spend up to $10 billion compensating owners of roughly 475,000 Volkswagens and Audi vehicles with 2-liter diesel engines — the bulk of the vehicles caught in the emissionscheating scandal. VW will buy back cars or ﬁx them. In either case, VW will pay owners $5,100 to $10,000 for their trouble, depending on the age of the car and whether it was in the owner’s possession on or before Sept. 18, 2015. VW also will buy out a lease if done through Volkswa-

Several tank cars burn after a freight train, carrying ethanol, derailed around 1 a.m. Friday near the small community of Graettinger in northwestern Iowa.
Incident will end up costing company more than $20 billion in U.S. Volkswagen pleaded guilty Friday to three criminal counts for a scheme to get around U.S. pollution rules. If a federal judge agrees to the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation, the scandal will end up costing the company more than $20 billion in the U.S. alone, not counting lost sales and brand value. With Friday’s plea, VW has resolved a number of big issues in an effort to clean up the corporate mess. That includes a plan to compensate car owners and either buy back or ﬁx their cars, as well as a settlement with dealers. But some hurdles still remain before the German automaker can say the scandal is behind it.

Tuesday is a big day for Odessa College THE POINT — OC is ﬁnalist for top award with a $1 million prize, to be announced Tuesday.
end up a prayer, cross your ﬁngers and let’s all wish Odessa College the best of luck. Last year, OC was named one of the top 10 ﬁnalists for the 2017 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence in recognition of high achievement and performance. The $1 million prize fund will be awarded Tuesday in Washington, D.C., to the winner and up to four ﬁnalists with distinction. The amount of money institutions receive can vary. Last year, ﬁnalists with distinction won $100,000 each and the winner received $800,000. How great is that? A delegation from OC will attend the announcement in Washington, D.C., while others will be supporting them from here via a webcast. We couldn’t be more excited for all the staff and students at Odessa College. The college is going like gangbusters and offers Odessa students an affordable way to pursue higher education or career and technical training. We’re proud to know that all the hard work of all of those at OC has been recognized by just becoming a ﬁnalist. We have every conﬁdence that when that announcement is made come Tuesday that it will be OC. The prize has been awarded every two years since 2011 and recognizes outstanding institutions selected from an original pool of more than 1,000 public community colleges nationwide. With a singular focus on student success, the prize assesses community colleges’ achievements in student learning, certiﬁcate and degree completion, employment and earnings for graduates and access and success for minority and low-income students. “Odessa College has made dramatic improvements in student success over the past several years,” Joshua Wyner, executive director of the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program in Washington, D.C., said in a news release. “Using an innovative model of eightweek semesters, which allow students to focus and tailor their education to their busy schedules, Odessa College has increased enrollment, graduation rates and ﬁnancial aid awards.” The 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence was awarded to Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Fla. The Aspen Prize is funded by the Joyce, Siemens and the Kresge foundations. If you see an OC student or staff member on the street give them a great, big pat on the back and thank them for all of their hard work. We’ll be watching on Tuesday and will be ready to celebrate another feather in the cap of those at Odessa College.

College campus disgrace WILLIAMS WALTER WILLIAMS

FIND OUT MORE >> More from Walter Williams: tinyurl.com /zqrysvc
While college administrators and professors accept disgraceful behavior, we as taxpayers, donors and parents should not foot the bill. Let’s look at some of that behavior. A University of Washington Tacoma Writing Center press release told students that expecting Americans to use proper grammar perpetuates racism. The University of Nebraska Omaha will host a workshop for “anti-racist allies” to develop “action plans” that confront America’s “foundation of systemic oppression” in the context of “the current political climate.” The workshop was inspired by professor Tammie Kennedy’s recent book, titled “Rhetorics of Whiteness.” She will lead a discussion on “taking action against white supremacy.” Black students at the University of Michigan demand campus ofﬁcials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.” Bob Lange is an associate professor emeritus of physics and an adjunct associate professor at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management. He says, “It is not terrorism to kill representatives of a government that you are opposed to.” His remarks were reported by Canary Mission, a group of students who document people and groups who are promoting hatred of the USA, Israel and the Jewish people, particularly on American
college campuses. It reports that Lange maintained that the 2012 terrorist attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya — which killed four people and injured 10 others — were “not terrorism.” Orange Coast College suspended Caleb O’Neil for violating an obscure school policy against recording classroom lectures. It’s what he recorded that was disturbing to the college administration. He recorded a human sexuality professor, Olga Perez Stable Cox, spending class time telling her students that Donald Trump’s election was an “act of terrorism” because he is a “white supremacist” and Vice President Mike Pence “is one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.” Additionally, the professor asked all of the Trump supporters in the classroom to stand up and be accounted for. In a relatively rare incidence of the education establishment’s doing the right thing, the Coast Community College District’s board of trustees overrode the college president and rescinded O’Neil’s suspension and other sanctions. What the board did not do was to sanction Cox for being a thug and bullying her students. Commentator Dennis Prager recently wrote a column titled “Why Professors Object to Being Recorded.” Prager says: “Our colleges and universities (and an increasing number of high schools and elementary schools) have been transformed from educational institutions into indoctrination institutions. With
the left-wing takeover of universities, their primary aim has become graduating as many leftists as possible.” He adds: “Most professors objecting to being recorded know on some level that they are persuasive only when their audience is composed largely of very young people just out of high school. They know that if their ideas are exposed to adults, they may be revealed as intellectual lightweights.” These professors know that they are persuasive only when their audience is composed of very young people with minds full of mush. If their ideas are exposed to more mature adults, they will be seen as quacks, hustlers and charlatans. By the way, I’ve taught graduate and undergraduate economic theory for 36 years at George Mason University. At the beginning of each semester, I invite students to record my lectures. I have no idea who has listened to the lectures or where the recordings wind up. But I challenge anyone to ﬁnd a lecture in which I proselytized students to my political or personal values. While professorial proselytization is accepted at most universities, I believe that to use one’s classroom to push one’s personal beliefs, particularly on immature students, is both immoral and academic dishonesty. What’s going on at the nation’s colleges represents a threat to both liberty and academic excellence. It is a gross dereliction of duty for legislators, donors and decent Americans to allow it to continue.

Crazy week for Trump v. Washington
HART RON HART

One by one, Trump is working on the campaign promises that got him elected: tightening our borders, working on cutting taxes, overturning Obama’s executive orders on regulations, ﬁxing ObamaCare, appointing one of the rightof-center judges on his list for the Supreme Court, etc. He has Washington, D.C., politicians on both sides in a tizzy. They just can’t ﬁgure this guy out; they are not used to someone who keeps his campaign promises. The Democrats are still struggling to get their footing. They have no real bench, just old political hacks like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who carp at Trump 24/7. As quirky as Trump is, the nation knows that handing control of the nation back to those two liberals would be about as smart as handing the keys to Air Force One to Harrison Ford. In a very weak response to Trump’s ﬁne speech before Congress, the Dems thought they would fortify the Mason Dixon Line by having former Democrat Governor of Kentucky Steve Beshear give the rebuttal. He is a rare bird these days, a white Southerner who is an elected Democrat. Obama put them on the endangered species list in 2009. Sadly, the ex-governor messed up his speech when he said he was a “Republican Democrat.” To ﬁgure out this guy for fellow Southerners, I looked into his past. It turns out the ex-Kentucky governor inherited his family-owned funeral business and graveyards.
Graveyards are an important voting constituency for Democrats. Beshear must have made his way up the ranks in the Democrat Party by specializing in the get-out-the-vote effort for them. There are usually just three reasons people are Democrats. One, they have been convinced they are an aggrieved and persecuted minority. Second, they work for the government — your school teachers, bureaucrats, DMV managers, etc. Third, they are the folks who did not earn their money but inherited it, and they feel guilty about it. Rest assured, the person who earned the family money was a conservative, but generations of trust fund kids get soft. After Trump’s triumphant speech, where he actually looked presidential (in a made-for-TV kind of way), the media coordinated a hit campaign on his Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. In his role as a senator, Sessions met with a Russian ambassador, which we now know Republicans are not supposed to do. So he was forced to recuse himself from looking into himself or something like that. It was the biggest win for Democrats since the ruling that you do not have to have any identiﬁcation to vote in elections. Doing what he does best, Trump then ﬂips the script on the Democrats by pulling their go-to trick of diversionary slander against their opponents. He Tweets out that he thinks the Obama administration had his phones
tapped during the presidential campaign. I’m not sure why he did that, and what information he relied on, but it changed the conversation from the Dems constant drip-drip-drip of lies and half-truths on the Trump administration’s fabricated, nefarious relationship with Russia to something else entirely. Nancy Pelosi, whose face is starting to look like a Picasso, recognized this political trick; she even has a name for it. She said, “It’s called a wrap-up smear. You make up something. Then you have the press write about it. And then you say everybody is writing about this charge.” Democrats have done this to their opponents for the last thirty years. With a buddy-buddy press corps, they can start any story, have enough pundits chime in on it, and make it seem true. If you think such fake news stories are effective and won’t haunt you for life, read about Nazi Propaganda Minister Goebbels — or just about Richard Gere and his views on gerbils. What might be making Trump paranoid is the “deep state,” as it has been called: the entrenched Washington career bureaucrats in all agencies who seem to be leaking information. They are the sources, if there are any, of many “anonymously sourced” stories. Based on all the many agencies’ political donor records, ninety-plus percent of such “deep state,” entrenched D.C. lifers are Democrats. So if Trump is acting paranoid, as if everybody is against him, he is wrong. Only 90 percent are.

It’s about character — not race P HOLFORD WILL HOLFORD
>> Will Holford is a former reporter for the Odessa American, who has always been an observer of government and politics at every level. He has both covered and worked for state government and had one foray in politics, as an employee, not a candidate. He lives in Austin and works for an electric cooperative in Bastrop. Contact him at will. holford@ yahoo.com.
eople never cease to amaze me. I have been following the saga of Odessa Councilman Malcolm Hamilton for a few weeks in the Odessa American and on its Facebook page. Hamilton’s actions are amazing enough. But what really surprised me are people’s comments about Hamilton and the OA’s coverage of his taxpayerfunded trip to Minneapolis and his antics, caught on video, during a trafﬁc stop by the Odessa Police Department. A large number of comments lumped Hamilton in with all council members as “crooks” and said they should all be investigated or “ﬁred.” Crooks, huh? Here’s the thing about elections and elected ofﬁcials, you and your neighbors, at least those few of you who went to the polls on election day, hired these so-called crooks. If all elected ofﬁcials are crooks, then isn’t it the people who voted that enable their crookedness? And if you didn’t vote, don’t complain about the quality of your elected ofﬁcials. Who, by the way, are not all crooks. I have known or currently know dozens of elected ofﬁcials. I’ve covered several as a journalist and worked for a couple of Texas Comptrollers. Most of them are good people who serve the public well. Some have been spectacular, a few have been lacking. They’re not all the same and should be judged individually, not collectively. Regarding ﬁring all the socalled crooks. Friends, elections are job interviews and you are the ones who hire and ﬁre. Surprisingly few people turn out to vote during local and county elections. There are typically four years between elections, and it’s difﬁcult to remove someone from ofﬁce. Once a candidate has won, he or she will make important decisions that will impact you for years to
The bottom line is that the residents in District 1 deserve better from their representative. Hamilton can deliver better. He should start by apologizing for and explaining his behavior. Maybe there is a perfectly understandable reason for it. But his constituents won’t know unless he trusts them enough to tell them.
come. So you need to know as much as you can about the person for whom you’re voting. That’s where the Odessa American and all media outlets come in. It’s the media’s responsibility to report on the actions of government bodies, such as city councils, county commissioners’ courts, school boards, state legislatures and congress. It’s the media’s responsibility to investigate and report on abuses of power and negligence by elected ofﬁcials and government employees. It’s the media’s responsibility to inform you about abuses of power they ﬁnd so you can hold candidates and elected ofﬁcials accountable, especially when you go to the polls. That’s why I was surprised by many comments on the OA’s Facebook page chastising the paper for picking on poor Hamilton. Comments that implored Hamilton to resign because the OA would not let up on him, so the only way to end his misery would be to resign. Or criticized the OA for writing another story on Hamilton. Or claimed the only reason anyone cared about what Hamilton had done was because he is African-American. Are you kidding me? First, darn right the OA is picking on Hamilton, if that’s what you call fair and accurate reporting of facts. And it should continue to do so until Hamilton is no longer a public ofﬁcial or has stopped acting like a jerk and trying to abuse his power as a councilman. Second, oh yeah, by all means, call on Hamilton to
resign because the OA would continue to pick on him, not because of his apparent misuse of taxpayer funds and verbal assault on Odessa police ofﬁcers during what was ruled a valid trafﬁc stop. That makes a lot of sense. Third, and ﬁnally, what does being African-American have to do with taking a 12-day, taxpayer-funded trip during which only one 75-minute ofﬁcial meeting took place, and berating OPD ofﬁcers? Newsﬂash — there are plenty of folks in other ethnic groups who do that and worse. And there are more than plenty of African Americans who would never dream of doing what Hamilton has reportedly done, even on their worst day. One’s race has nothing to do with it. One’s character does. The bottom line is that the residents in District 1 deserve better from their representative. Hamilton can deliver better. He should start by apologizing for and explaining his behavior. Maybe there is a perfectly understandable reason for it. But his constituents won’t know unless he trusts them enough to tell them. Then they can decide if he should continue to represent them when the next election rolls around. In the meantime, the Odessa American, other media outlets and his fellow city council members have a responsibility to hold Hamilton accountable for his behavior and actions. Judging by what I’ve seen so far in Hamilton, their work is cut out for them.
Protecting the unborn, and mothers BY STATE REP. BROOKS LANDGRAF
BROOKS LANDGRAF STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Last week at the Texas Capitol, I proudly ﬁled House Bill 3539, which is a measure that would make it a third-degree felony to assault a pregnant woman in Texas. Current state law only classiﬁes that crime as a Class A misdemeanor. This bill is a good pro-life policy, but it’s also a way to help prosecutors ﬁght violent crimes against women who are in a vulnerable condition. A fellow Odessan, Kortney Williams, brought this idea to my attention last year. At that time, Kortney was an assistant county attorney working for Ector County Attorney Dusty Gallivan. Now, Kortney is an assistant district attorney in Bobby Bland’s ofﬁce. In both positions, Kortney knows what a valuable and effective tool this increase in punishment can be in ﬁghting these awful assaults against pregnant women, and that’s
why she has urged me to ﬁle legislation to make the change. As someone who is staunchly pro-life, I also like this bill because it is a clear statement that when a pregnant woman is assaulted, both the mother and the unborn child are victims. In my view, that’s a crime against two human beings and more severe punishment for the convicted attacker is absolutely justiﬁed. It is also my goal through this legislation to create a greater deterrent for assaults of this kind, which in my view, have no place in our society, especially when considering that one victim — the unborn child — is completely defenseless, and the pregnant mother is in a physical condition that makes it difﬁcult for her to act in self-defense or ﬂee her attacker. I will work diligently to pass this bill during the current session of Texas Legislature,
which runs until May 29th. If the bill is passed, the new law would take effect on September 1, 2017. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your state representative. I’m anxious to work on this effort, and many others, to ensure that Texas remains the best state in the country to live, work and raise a family. God bless Texas! State Representative Brooks Landgraf serves Texas House District 81, which encompasses Andrews, Ector, Ward and Winkler counties. Landgraf lives in his hometown of Odessa with his wife, Shelby, and their daughter, Hollis Rose. He works as a fourth-generation West Texas cattle rancher and practices law at the ﬁrm of Todd, Barron, Thomason, Hudman & Bebout, P.C. in Odessa. An Eagle Scout, Landgraf is also active in several local nonproﬁts.
ACCORDING TO LEE JUDGE
THE IDLE AMERICAN
A reach for the stars When folks strive greatly to take from life what matters most — learning along the way that it’s mostly about giving — phrases like “giant strides” or “standing tall” come into play. It seems “Texan to the core” to do so. Sometimes, though, along comes someone who learns early on that noteworthy accomplishments also can accrue from taking smaller steps, reaching higher and working harder. Such was a delightful man named Richard (Dick) Collins, a favorite by any measure. On graduation day in 1948, he and 23 classmates proudly accepted diplomas at Chillicothe, TX, High School. Under four feet tall, this oldest of ﬁve children endeared himself to his family, school and the community, a pattern that deﬁned him throughout life. He loomed large in giving back. Having taken more in hardscrabble values from the Great Depression than it robbed of him, this 18-year-old visited Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, hoping to study journalism there. He wasn’t optimistic, since he had no folding money and little that janNEWBURY gled, but President Rupert Richardson bade him enroll, if he’d work in the DON kitchen. (It’s worth noting that while NEWBURY many students were on the “freshman >> Newbury 15” weight-gain list, he added height is a speaker instead. At graduation four years later, in the he had gained about a foot in height.) Metroplex. Kitchen duty was short-lived. Soon Email: he was writing sports for the campus newbury@ newspaper, followed by work alongspeakerdoc. side coaches, promoting H-SU sports com. Phone: across the land. 817-447-3872. Never forgetting his roots, he made Twitter: @ sure to return to family gatherings — donnew as well as those at H-SU — throughout bury Website: his life. www. Even at age 86 — months before speakerdoc. his death — he arose early, slapped com. a sandwich together and headed for Oklahoma City. He allowed himself just one stop so he could arrive by mid-afternoon for maximum time with family. He led the laughter, requiring little coaxing to tell and-retell stories kin always wanted to hear. “If you didn’t love Uncle Richard after just ﬁve minutes, you just weren’t paying attention,” said nephew Bob Renn, whose wife Debbie is writing a book about their hero. Stories abounded at Collins’ Austin funeral recently and at his Chillicothe burial. Bill Allred, a favorite cousin, spoke of their African safari. Carlene Spicer, an H-SU colleague at whose home Collins and other campus visitors landed regularly, told about his once asking her to reach a book from a high shelf. Standing a millimeter over ﬁve feet, she said, “Dick, you’re the ﬁrst person who has EVER asked me to reach for something.” He chuckled, “Well, that’s one more than has asked me.” Collins loved life, serving as Sports Information Director at H-SU (and later, brieﬂy at Howard Payne), as well as writing sports in Wichita Falls, Amarillo, Abilene, Pampa and Austin. He won awards both as a journalist and a realtor. While in Austin, he struck up friendships with the late Darrell Royal and renowned golfer Ben Crenshaw. At the funeral, Crenshaw mentioned enjoying numerous rounds of golf with Collins. “It was Dick,” he said, “who ﬁrst called me ‘Gentle Ben.’ ” (Dick wrote about all sports, favoring track and ﬁeld, and covered several Olympics). Around age 50, Collins entered the real estate world, making his mark there, too. He was employed until his death, greatly lengthening his list of friends. Modest to a fault and never yielding to use of the “why me?” line, he survived much. He endured two open-heart surgeries, and a serious injury on an H-SU basketball trip. He worked long hours, and spent big chunks of time watching two TV screens. (One was always on the golf channel, the other on whatever might be “in season”). His “bucket list” never shortened. Whenever he marked an item off, he added another. He and cousin Bill had planned another trip to Hawaii about now, but death intervened. Oh, and that rootremembering thing: The bulk of his estate goes to H-SU, where he knew there still are wide-eyed freshmen showing up short of folding money.

Flashback to 1973 I ELAM DENNIS ELAM
>> Dennis Elam is an assistant professor at Texas A&M San Antonio and a 1966 graduate of Andrews High School and blogs at www. the market perspective .com
made the mistake of entering the brokerage business in October 1973. But at the time social mood was mostly positive on the markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had ﬁnally regained its ﬁrst time ever high of 1,000, last recorded in the mid-1960s. Richard Nixon won 60.7 percent of the popular vote, carrying every state but Massachusetts. Nixon and Kissinger claimed to have a plan to win/end the war in Vietnam. A brokerage ﬁrm owned by the DuPont family, F. I. DuPont then DuPont Glore Forgan, was in trouble. Ross Perot’s EDS ﬁrm was improving their ‘‘back ofﬁce’’ transactions. While today’s readers only know Ross as a quirky presidential candidate, back then he was Buffet, Gates, and Musk all rolled into one ﬂamboyant character. He was the ﬁrst ever paper billionaire after taking EDS public at a 193 to one price earnings ratio. If anyone understood winning
on Wall Street, it ought to be this guy. As a newly minted UT Austin MBA it sounded great to me, I mean, what could go wrong? Quite a bit could go wrong, and did as it turned out. Readers not familiar with the era can brush up in Wikipedia articles titled “Watergate and Richard Nixon.” Our class graduated in April 1974 and the market was already sinking. Before it was all over, numerous brokerage ﬁrms would be acquired by others. Merrill acquired White Weld which put it for the ﬁrst time in the real investment banking business. Perot acquired a large wire house named Walston, only to see the merged ﬁrm collapse by August 1974. The point of today’s column is to mention the amazing similarities between then and now. Cycle wise, the markets hit their low at DJIA 577 in December 1974. Forty years later
the transports hit a new high in November, 2014. Transports have registered a second higher high since. Markets are now at 40, 20, 17 and 7-year cycle highs. Then the DJIA had regained its 1966 high over 1,000. Now it has hit the highest level ever at 21,000. In similar fashion, Trump beat all the Republican pros and then Hillary, the Dems simply cannot believe it now, as they could not believe it then. Popular stocks then were known as the Nifty Fifty. Today we have the Fabulous Five, Facebook, Google, et al. An article this week in the Wall Street Journal notes that record money is pouring into Exchange Traded Funds, or ETFs. ETFs are manufactured investments put out by ﬁrms like Blackrock. An ETF mimics a particular sector by purchasing other derivatives such as futures, options and stock. So we have individuals investing not in stocks, but in outright
derivatives supported by a brokerage ﬁrm. A brokerage ﬁrm ﬂoats with ten percent capital on a sea of borrowed money. Debt then sank brokerage ﬁrms just as it did in 2008. Now total American debt is 370 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. We collectively owe near four times what we produce in one year. But by far the most amazing coincidence is in the political arena. Then the press and the Democrat majority in both Houses despised Nixon. Nixon certainly returned the feeling right down to forming a written enemies list. Democrats simply cannot believe they lost the 2016 election. The Democrats are throwing up every imagined charge from Russia to Trump business to his daughter’s conﬂicts of interest. Already they took down the National Security Adviser Flynn, blocked the Labor Secretary nominee and demanded and got the new Attorney General to recuse him-
self. As Karl Rove observed, if they can turn three Republican senators against him, Trump is toast. The charges that do not stick do not matter, they only need to ﬁnd one. They can lose all the rest if they just ﬁnd one that causes doubt. Nixon had his enemies list. Now Steve Bannon declares every day is war with the media. Now Trump charges Obama with tapping his phones. And today the turmoil is literally spread all over the world, ﬁtting the higher level of the markets. Leaders are being impeached or voted out or simply cannot run due to low public regard. This is the case in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, France, England, Italy and now South Korea. Then the price of oil hit new highs due to an embargo. Now we recover from a recent record low. Will history repeat? We will report on how this unfolds.
Unable to get rid of pop-ups; ‘Widows 10’ acting strange
IT’S GEEK TO ME JEFF WERNER
>> Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. You can ﬁnd his past articles at ItsGeekToMe .co.
Question: This is a followup to my question that you answered in #498 column (ed: I.G.T.M. #498, February 5, 2017). Thanks for providing the response, was elated. Neglected to mention the pop-up occurs with or without a browser running. I do have Edge, IE11, and Firefox. I did try AdwCleaner previously but downloaded a new edition and tried that too. It listed no malware, however, it ﬂagged 4 folders with ﬁles all over a year old as suspicious. The same ﬁles are also on 2 other XP computers with Avast without problems, which I deleted to try to correct the fault. I ran inetcpl.cpl and conﬁrmed the settings you recommended. Did the restart and thought it was corrected — for about 30 seconds (no browser) when the pop-up occurred. Obviously am open to any other suggestions. Thanks again. >> Corwin D. Mary Esther, Fla.
Answer: Well, Corwin, I’ve already given you my best advice, and I’m sorry it didn’t help. If AdwCleaner didn’t ﬁnd anything, and the same ﬁles exist on other systems without triggering a warning, perhaps you’re getting a false-positive. It does happen occasionally. If you’re convinced that the problem isn’t really a problem, and you just want the pop-ups to go away, then you can add an exclusion for that ﬁle, so Avast! won’t trigger on it any more. To do this, start by opening the Avast! user interface. Go to “Settings” then “Active Protection.” Select the File System shield, and click “Customize.” In the left-hand navigation menu, locate and click on “Exclusions.” Click “Add” to create a new entry in the list, and add the exact ﬁle path and name of the ﬁle that Avast! keeps alerting on. Once you’re done, you need to restart all of Avast!’s shields to put your
changes into effect. Q: I am running Widows 10 which I upgraded to when it ﬁrst came out. When I turn my computer on in the morning the screen has colored horizontal lines running across it then it fades to a white screen it eventually comes up but it usually takes 5-10 minutes. What is going on? >> Michael M. Niceville, Fla. A: Okay, everybody go back and read the ﬁrst sentence of Michael’s question. “Widows 10” — ha! Good one, even if it was accidental. Michael, the ﬁrst thing (ok, the second thing) that I thought when I read your question was “hardware problem.” The description of our system made me wonder whether this might be an older PC, approaching the end of its useful life; i.e., the beginning of hardware problems. The problem with trying to diagnose
this is that what you see on the screen may not be what Windows is trying to display to you. If this is a desktop computer, there is a video card, a cable with a plug on each end, and a monitor with a power supply and other electronic guts that are all suspects. If the computer is a laptop, there are internal card-edge connectors that could have come loose, a backlight that could fail in strange ways, and other electronics that are all potential sources of problems. Not to fear! I have Geekedup a method by which you can deﬁnitively prove whether this is a software or a hardware issue. Just do a screen capture. That is, while the problem is visible on your screen, simply press the “Print Screen” key. Depending on your computer, the key may be labeled “Prt Scrn” or “Pt Sc” or something similar, and you may need to use a key modiﬁer such as “Shift,” or “Ctrl” or even “Fn”
to access the screen capture function. Pressing this magic key essentially takes a copy of everything that Windows thinks is on your screen (regardless of the inter-connected hardware) and places it on the Windows clipboard. From there, it can be pasted into any application capable of image processing, such as Paint or WordPad. Do this while the problem is visible on your screen, then wait for the problem to go away. You’ll almost surely see that the lines you mentioned are not present. In the unlikely event that it actually was a software problem, write in again, and I’ll look for other solutions after I ﬁnish a big plate of crow. Otherwise, check for loose cabling, a video card that’s not properly seated in its slot, or, as I said earlier, a computer that’s just getting old and tired, and takes a few extra minutes to warm up all the way.
Timing Is… Everything! The day Mark Waters sold his interest in his company, he wanted to see exactly where the industry was at that time, and oil was $93.46 a barrel. For the last 3 years, he’s been traveling, working on the presidential campaign and spending some much needed quality time with his family. After 3 years, he started missing the people of Odessa, whom he feels are the salt of the Earth and decided to come back and start a new company. He is excited about the position of the market, and everyone considers the timing to be perfect, hence the name TIE Specialties. He feels incredibly fortunate to have not only a great partner in Greg Smithee, but also to bring back the core group of employees from his old company. All of them know this business extremely well and offer superior service in every aspect of the supply business. With many years of experience, they also offer the best sourcing available in the industry. TIE will service pipeline, oilﬁeld, plant and constrution industries with hand tools, power tools, safety equipment and all other consumables for the industry.

U.S. rig count increases CEO: Dallas-Fort 12 this week to 768 Worth Airport needs up to $10B in upgrades THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT WORTH Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport needs up to $10 billion in improvements to runways, taxiways and other parts of the airﬁeld, its chief executive says. “We have four runways that are 40 years old. We have roadways and bridges that are 40 years old,” airport CEO Sean Donohue said in an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “When you look at our airfield needs, that’s several billion right there.” Donohue recently testiﬁed before a congressional committee about necessary improvements for the airport, which opened in 1974 and now uses seven runways. The airﬁeld is safe by government standards, but ofﬁcials say the con-
crete and pavement of its runways and taxiways are reaching the end of their expected lifespan. Earlier this year, airport staff began testing airﬁeld pavement to determine how many layers of runway will need to be rebuilt. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price said the airport board hasn’t yet been advised on what should be done ﬁrst. Price says she supports funding for needed improvements. “You don’t want infrastructure that’s crumbling and not going to be up to the quality you expect from this airport,” said Price. The airport is the world’s third in operations and 10th busiest in terms of passengers, according to its website.

Federal judge says lawsuit against Tigua gaming over THE ASSOCIATED PRESS EL PASO A federal judge says a 1999 Texas lawsuit against the Tigua Indians has been closed and Attorney General Ken Paxton would have to sue again to pursue allegations of gambling violations. The El Paso Times reports U.S. District Judge Kathleen Cardone on Friday declined to hold the Tiguas in contempt for of-
fering bingo games at their entertainment centers. Cardone notes she closed the case almost a year ago after ordering the tribe to stop offering electronic sweepstakes games. An attorney for the tribe, Dolph Barnhouse, says it’s a big deal — a turning point in the dispute.

When it comes to economic data, keep it real!
I THE ECONOMIST M. RAY PERRYMAN
>> Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies.
nformation is essential to decision making, whether for an individual, a family, a business or a government. Without accurate input data, it is virtually impossible to draw meaningful conclusions and make effective decisions. When it comes to the data that we use to assess the economy, the watchwords are “Just the facts, ma’am!” That is why I and my colleagues in the economics profession became more than a little agitated when reports recently surfaced that the Trump Administration had instructed the Council of Economic Advisors to make the data support an unrealistically high growth rate that would allow deﬁcits to fall to fund new programs. A bit of history is instructive here. There is a longstanding tradition of presidents issuing forecasts that are a little higher than the consensus of external projections. After all, every president thinks that his policies will make things better (at least we hope they do). But an optimistic forecast based on historical data and assumptions about future policy is not the same thing as a forecast in which the answer is decided in advance and then the data manipulated to get there.
The types of data which are compiled by various agencies of the U.S. government are many and varied. The U.S. Census Bureau not only collects a wealth of information every 10 years, but also uses sophisticated models to form estimates in between. Demographic information ranging from numbers of residents by micropolitan area, city, or county (or even census tract, which is very small indeed), incomes, housing characteristics, educational attainment and much more are available for anyone with an internet connection. Other agencies such as the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics track detailed information (again by small geographic area) related to employment by industry, compensation, worker characteristics and then some. Other agencies monitor U.S. exports and imports, energy use and markets, health and wellbeing, education, and just about anything else you could think of. (Believe me, this description only scratches the surface of what’s available.) Obviously, it’s not mere curiosity that is driving this enormously thorough (and expensive) data collecting ef-
fort. This information helps us see how things are going and answers important questions such as how the population is growing and changing and moving, where the economy is expanding/contracting and shifting and what the situation is with necessary items such as fuels. Another crucial beneﬁt of the wealth of data is that it helps us determine whether we’re making progress toward important social goals. If you take a close look at the monthly releases from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, you can see how many people were hired and in what industries, how many remain unemployed (and how long they’ve been unemployed), how many wish they were working full time but can only ﬁnd part-time work and more. We can gain insight into social changes because many series are collected by race/ethnicity, age and gender. It’s also possible to check the success or failure of various policies. Yet another piece of the data puzzle is the wide variety of forecasts which are produced. Various branches of government and agencies are projecting everything from population to the economy to the price of oil to interest
rates. These forecasts are critical to decisions across both the public and private sector. I have been providing forecasts for the economies of Texas and its metropolitan areas for about 30 years, and I know ﬁrsthand how many rely on those expectations in making plans for their businesses, schools, and lives. I also know that they are meaningless without the proper underlying data. Given the huge importance on so many levels, any plan to make changes in the way the data is collected or deﬁned should be approached with extreme caution. Yes, sometimes there is a need for tweaking the process such as to improve accuracy, better reﬂect reality, or take advantage of new capabilities or technologies. However, it is essential that politics play absolutely no role. One change which has been suggested involves the way goods that are imported and then exported are counted. The net effect would be to raise the U.S. trade deﬁcit, which could be used as ammunition to support protectionist policies. This is a very bad idea. Another deals with the way unemployed people are counted. Currently, any-
one who has not looked for work in the past four weeks is no longer counted in certain measures of unemployment. There could be some merit to looking at better ways to track the status of the labor market, but political maneuvering is no basis. Moreover, the potential negative ramiﬁcations and fallout from these changes is so widespread that the beneﬁts would have to be massive. I have been involved in efforts to reﬁne and improve what we measure and how we measure it for closer to 40 years than I want to admit. I can tell you that the dedicated public servants who compile and report this information, many of whom work in the agencies for decades, are meticulous and methodical in their approach to this important activity. They follow rigid protocols and are not the least bit impacted by the people or parties in power at any given moment. As someone who has lived and breathed economic data and statistics for decades, I am well aware that there is always room for improvement. What there is not room for, however, are changes driven by politics or situations where the numbers are altered to ﬁt the conclusion.

Texas A&M-Kingsville banks winner, ousts UTPB Javelinas sink deciding 3-pointer as time expired THE ODESSA AMERICAN email@example.com
GOLDEN, COLO. The UTPB men’s basketball team suffered a seasonending loss Saturday, upset by Texas A&MKingsville 74-71 in the ﬁrst round of the NCAA Division II national championship tournament. Kingsville scrambled to sink an improbable, buzzer-beating 3-pointer in the ﬁnal seconds to win. UTPB trailed 43-34 at the halftime break, after hitting just 36.4
percent of its shots from the ﬂoor in the ﬁrst 20 minutes as the Falcons struggled to adjust to their surroundings early on the road on the campus of regional-host Colorado School of Mines. The Falcons battled back in the second half, cutting into the Kingsville lead and making it onepossession game for the ﬁnal eight minutes of the contest. Josh Morris slammed down a dunk to put UTPB up 69-68 with 2:56 left, then after a rebound on the other end, he knocked down a free throw make it 70-68 with just under two
minutes to go. From there, Kingsville responded when Duan Wright scored with a foul and completed the and-1 opportunity to the Javelinas up by one, before UTPB’s Sammy Allen hit a free throw to tie it back up with less than a minute left. UTPB then came up with a big stop, and took a timeout, holding possession with 27 seconds left in the game and with 24 seconds on the shot clock.

The Permian girls 800-meter relay team put together a show-stealing performance Saturday afternoon. The quartet of Akor Maywin, Anysia Fletcher, Tyra Harris and Keiausha Williams blew away the competition at the 73rd annual West Texas Relays to take ﬁrst place with a time of 1:41.46 — defeating second place Midland Lee by more than two seconds. It wasn’t until the four Lady Panthers were atop the medal stand located at the 35-yard line on Ratliff Stadium’s turf that they realized how grand their win was. After being announced as the winners to the crowd, the P.A. announcer asked them to stay atop the podium by themselves. He then congratulated them on breaking a 22-year old event record. The news brought loud cheers down to the quartet who were jumping up and down with excitement atop the medal stand. “That was special, that doesn’t happen very often,” Permian interim girls head track and ﬁeld coach Robert Wills said about the win. “There have been some >> See PERMIAN Page 3D

Odessa College claims Region V title in overtime
Spurs roll BY JOSHUA PERRY email@example.com
JOSHUA PERRY|ODESSA AMERICAN
WOLFFORTH It wasn’t an easy road, but the Odessa College women’s basketball team is adding more hardware to an already stellar season. The top-ranked Lady Wranglers erased a 14point deﬁcit to emerge as the Region V tournament champions with an 82-75 victory in overtime over Collin County Community College on Saturday at Frenship High School’s Tiger Pit. The victory gives Odessa College an automatic bid into the NJCAA national
tournament set to begin on March 20 in Lubbock. The Lady Wranglers (28-1) switched to a fullcourt press late in the third quarter and that adjustment sparked both the defense and offense as the Lady Cougars’ lead quickly evaporated in the fourth quarter. “We were just trying to look for something to give us a spark,” Odessa College head coach Ara Baten said. “They were doing different things defensively that gave us trouble.” Odessa College used a 30-6 run over the span of six minutes to turn a 46-32 deficit into a 62-52 lead
halfway through the fourth quarter. It appear the Lady Wranglers would be able to cruise to the victory, but the Lady Cougars (2111) had one more run in them and regained the lead 68-66 in the ﬁnal minute. Chinna Fair was able to game on a bucket with 26 seconds to play. Then after a stop, Odessa College had 1.5 second left to win the game in regulation, but Fair’s jumper from the right baseline missed wide off the rim. The two squads exchanged baskets in the overtime before Mariah McCully put Odessa >> See OC Page 2D

SAN ANTONIO Patty Mills had 21 points and the San Antonio Spurs rolled to a 10785 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night in a game short on star power to pull within a half-game of the NBA’s top record. The big showdown between the league’s top two teams turned into a huge letdown with both teams missing their star players. Already without Kevin Durant due to a knee injury, Golden State opted to rest Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala.

Odessa College handles Western Texas for Region V title BY JOSHUA PERRY firstname.lastname@example.org
WOLFFORTH The Region V final was win or go home time for the Odessa College men’s basketball team. The No. 17 Wranglers took their fate into their own hands and hammered Western Texas College 94-74 on Saturday to lock up a spot in the NJCAA national tournament for the second straight year. After a plethora of upsets in regional tournaments across the country, there was no at-large bid to nationals awaiting the Wranglers (27-5) and they were well aware that their season was on the line against the Westerners. “I think our guys just really wanted to win,” OC head coach Tra Arnold said. “They were really excited to get to this game and came out and performed.” Keyon Jones and Tyree Robinson step up after struggling early in the regional to pace the Wranglers to the title. Jones finished with a game-high 26 points, which included 5 of 10 from 3-point territory, while Robinson provided an energy boost in the paint with 17 points and 14 rebounds. “These last two days, I’ve played terrible, but my

the ball inside to freshman Andres Villa in the ﬁnal seconds, but as he drove, Kingsville’s Trey Sumpter came crashed in help defense to make a game-deﬁning block. The loose ball was tied up for a jump ball, giving Kingsville possession with 4.9 seconds left. That’s when Kingsville’s Marcus Frazier ran the length of the court and ﬁred a deep, offbalance shot from about 27 feet out at the buzzer, which hit the backboard and rattled around the rim before falling to win Kingsville the game. Daeshon Francis scored 16 points to lead UTPB in the loss. He scored all nine of UTPB’s points during a 9-2 Falcons run
an 18-point deﬁcit in the second half, then stunned No. 1 South Plains College in the semiﬁnals. The Westerners (22-10) weren’t able to ﬁnd that level a third time after OC opened a 39-31 lead in the ﬁrst half. The Wranglers
early in the second half that gave the Falcons a chance down the stretch. Saturday’s loss marked the end of a history-making season for UTPB. The Falcons (26-6) won the UTPB men’s basketball program’s ﬁrst-ever outright regular-season conference championship this year, before winning the program’s ﬁrst-ever postseason championship when UTPB won the Lone Star Conference tournament last weekend. This year’s Falcons squad also earned the most wins in a single season in program history. Senior UTPB guard Johnnie Lacy scored 15 points in his ﬁnal game as a Falcon, and will leave the program as one of the best players to ever play at UTPB. In two seasons at UTPB, Lacy scored 1,041 points, averaging 17.4 points per game.

College up for good with a layup at the 1:15 mark of the extra session. The Lady Wranglers proceeded to make all six of their free throw attempts in the last minute of overtime to lock up the region title. “We just had to keep our head up,” Fair said. “We started kinda slow and we just had to come back in the second half and play our game.” McCully finished with 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Lady Wranglers, while Fair scored 17. Odessa College also got a boost off the bench from Shannon Dozier who hit four 3-pointers in the second half on the way to 14 points.
that I had two bad games and my team need me. I had to do it for my family right here. We knew that this was a must win. It was tough, but we had to shut them down and we did it.” Kejuan Johnson chipped in another 11 points for OC
Moa Lundqvist chipped in another 13 points and nine rebounds in the win and LaLa Robinson added another 10 in what was one of the more balanced offensive outputs of the season for the Lady Wranglers. “I can go down the line. We had kids that made good decisions with the ball. We had kids that rebounded and hit shots. We had kids that made the pass,” Baten said. “We needed a group effort on offense and defense.” Odessa College was looking good early in the ﬁrst half, but the Lady Cougars responded following a timeout when trailing 17-11 with seven minutes left in the second quarter. Collin County followed the stoppage with a 19-4 run to close the half with a 30-21 lead. The Lady Wranglers had trouble defending Collin County post player Mya Johnson, who
off the bench in the win. Robinson and Ismael Johnson will be making a return trip back to the national tournament after being a part of the squad that was part of the round of 16 at year ago. “They understand the foundation,” Arnold said of the sophomore duo. “I’m happy for them. They’ve contributed all year. They’re part of history.” Western Texas had been one of the tougher foes for OC during the WJCAC season. The Wranglers won by two in Snyder before falling by two at the buzzer in Odessa. Robinson said the team knew the challengers that were waiting in the ﬁnal. “The key was to push the ball and win the rebounding war,” Robinson said. “We stuck together, no matter what.” Jordan Evans led Western Texas with 21 in the loss, while Jordan Tolbert and Kolbe Kinghorn each notched another 11. The Wranglers will turn their attention to the national tournament beginning on March 20 in Hutchinson, Kan. The Wranglers will learn their seeding and opponent on Monday. >> Follow Joshua Perry on Twitter @OAjperrysuu
ﬁnished with 24 points and 17 rebounds in the loss. “They were just getting good position and taking it to us,” Baten said. “We couldn’t hold our position. Sometimes we were a little on our help, but sometimes, you’ve got to tip your hat, because she did a good job.” That lead ballooned to 14 before OC changed the game with the press. Odessa College will be off next week before taking part in the national tournament. The Lady Wranglers will take a few days and enjoy adding this title to the WJCAC championship before learning their seed on Monday. “Right now, we’ll just enjoy this, but come next week, we’ve got to work hard in practice,” Fair said. >> Follow Joshua Perry on Twitter @OAjperrysuu
Redick pushes to put civility back in college hoops BY MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS J.J. Redick vividly recalls how it began, with some hecklers at his ﬁrst road game for Duke. Over time, Redick remembers the chants turning into vulgar jeers and crude messages about his siblings. The vile words could be heard sometimes when the ball was in his hands and usually while he shot free throws. It even happened once during the national anthem. On the court, Redick appeared to embrace the role of being America’s most despised amateur
player. Off of it, he coped. Today, Redick’s goal is to prevent other college athletes from facing similar experiences. More than a decade after his ﬁnal game at Duke, the 2006 national player of the year is urging athletes and fans to put civility back in college basketball as much of the nation turns its attention to the NCAA Tournament. “It’s something I’ve thought a lot about as I’ve gotten older and reﬂected on my experiences at Duke, and as I continue to watch college basketball,” Redick told The Associated Press. “It doesn’t happen as much,
I don’t think, in the NBA. The cool thing to me, whether you’re a college basketball fan or an NBA fan, I think it would really hit home with a lot of fans and it would really ring true because of our passion for the game.” In sports, the distinction between passion and petulance has become blurred, something reflected sharply in American politics these days. In such an environment, perhaps declining decorum at arenas and other venues around the country is not much of a surprise. Some conferences have created policies

about storming the court or running onto fields to celebrate in an effort to keep players safe. But even they understand the only real solution is changing hearts and minds. So on Monday, Dove Men+Care is asking fans to take a pledge that will keep them on their best behavior during March Madness. Dozens of coaches and former players, including Redick, have signed on. Three years ago, Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart was suspended three games for shoving a fan after the two exchanged words. Smart, who initially claimed the fan used a racial slur, later apologized for the incident. In December, Arkansas receiver Drew Morgan was ejected from the Belk Bowl after allegedly spitting in the face of a Virginia Tech player. He, too, apologized. Then in the CFP semifinals, a camera caught Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins bizarrely groping Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel after Samuel had been tackled. Grayson Allen, like Redick a ﬁery player from Duke, was suspended earlier this season for intentionally tripping opponents. He drew a technical foul last weekend after throwing an elbow at North Carolina’s Brandon Robinson. Butler coach Chris Holtmann said he believes some of these scenes are a result of the stress associated with playing for postseason bids or a job. And some are a result of more scrutiny.

SMU beats UCF in American semiﬁnals BY PAT EATON-ROBB The Associated Press
HARTFORD, CONN. SMU goes into Sunday’s American Athletic Conference championship on a 15-game winning streak, having won more games than any other team in the program’s history. Not bad for a squad that didn’t get a single vote in the preseason AP Poll. Sterling Brown scored 22 points as the 12th-ranked Mustangs (29-4) beat UCF 70-59 on Saturday in the AAC semiﬁnals. Semi Ojeleye added 17 points, and Shake Milton had 14 of his 16 points in the second for SMU, which is back in the championship game after missing last year’s tournament because of NCAA sanctions. The Mustangs won the title in 2015. SMU has won 25 of its last 26 after a 4-3 start to their season. “It’s a good accomplishment, but we
know we’re not done,” said Brown. “We’ve got a bigger goal that we’re trying to accomplish and add to those wins.” B.J. Taylor had 20 points and Nick Banyard 16 for the Knights (21-11). They had won six in a row. Neither team led by more than six before Milton stole the ball from the 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall under the UCF basket and made the Knights pay on the other end with a 3-pointer for a 42-34 lead. Taylor was trying to signal for a timeout that led to a technical foul and Sterling Brown extended the lead to 10 with two free throws. “I didn’t see what happened, but it’s basketball,” said UCF coach Johnny Dawkins. “The player has to call (timeout). Everyone now is making plays on the basketball while the player is trying to make the call. So when that happens, there’s going to be a lot of guys, a lot of congestion in that area.”

real good runners here and to break that kind of record says something. All four of those girls can run.” Wills came into the event with high expectations for not only the 800 relay but also the 400 and mile relays — which is run by the same record-setting Lady Panthers foursome. That Lady Panthers quartet also won the 400 relay by more than a second. The mile relay wasn’t run after bad weather canceled the last few events. In addition to running the second leg of the 800 relay, Maywin took home ﬁrst place in the high jump. “I think when I was younger, high jump was really my strong suit,” Maywin said. “But as I’m getting older my legs can’t carry me as far as I wish they would. It’s good for me to balance so I can lean on everything instead of stressing my legs out.” Coming into the West Texas Relays, the Lady Panthers were looking to ﬁnd their groove with a few injuries and a new head coach. Less than a month until the District 2-6A meet in San Angelo, this was the result the Lady Panthers were looking for to propel them to victory the rest of the season. The Lady Panthers ﬁnished in third place in the standings — 54 points behind ﬁrst-place Midland High. “This is real good practice,” Wills said. “We have high expectations for our relays.” >> BRONCHOS YOUTH NOT AFRAID: Before Saturday’s event, Odessa High boys track and ﬁeld coach Randy Thompson said that his team is entering the breaking point of its season. “We really start adjusting to make sure we have the right kids

Odessa High School’s Relaya Hernandez, center left, and Paris Villarreal ﬁght for ﬁrst place in the girls Division I 100-meter dash Saturday afternoon during the West Texas Relays at Ratliff Stadium. in the right events,” Thompson said. “It’s the best practice you can kind of get. “And we really start concentrating more on specializing. Right now we are treating everyone the same. This meet is where they start specializing speciﬁcally on what they are doing.” Now that it has ended, Thompson has seen some role reversal on his team. His underclassmen had strong ﬁnishes throughout the day, while some of his upperclassmen let their nerves show. Odessa High freshman Austin Aguirre won the JV 110 hurdles and three Bronchos finished second through fourth in the 400 dash. “Some of my upperclassmen seem like they’re running scared,” Thompson said. “But my younger guys are running really well. The younger guys are really stepping up and we got to get the nerves out of some of the older ones. It’s
usually the opposite.” One of the upperclassmen who did perform well Saturday was junior Roberto Macias — who got second place in the 400 dash (51.78) by ﬁve hundredths of a second behind Permian’s Gregory Nelson. “I felt like I could have done a little better especially since I had the ﬁrst two meets off,” Macias said. “Throughout the year, I’m hoping that I’ll be hitting 48s or 49s.” Even though Thompson will now start moving kids up to varsity and down to junior varsity, he said he’s leaving only home ECISD event of the year pleased with his team’s effort. “I’m happy with what I’ve seen so far,” Thompson said. “After today, some of these freshman are going to be moved up to the varsity level and they’re going to have to have the maturing to handle it.” >> ATTENTION TO DETAIL: The Permian boys track and field
team was hoping to improve in every event at the West Texas Relays. Although that didn’t happen as planned, Panthers head coach Kirk Thurman was able to point to one thing that can lift his team. “It all stemmed from the 4x100,” Thurman said. “That’s what hurt us. If we don’t get going in the 4x100, now it’s like were playing catch-up.” That 400 relay — ran by Michael Comer, Preston Ellison, Toddrick Robinson and Jaime Garza Jr. — ﬁnished third (42.88) less than a second behind both Midland High and Midland Lee. About 30 minutes later, the 800 relay team — Robinson, Ellison, Garza Jr. and Kaden Horrell — ﬁnished in fourth (1:31.28) more than two seconds behind ﬁrstplace Midland Lee. “We just got to come back over spring break and get it together and get ready for district,” Garza Jr. said about what his team needs to do going forward. “We just
got to work on our conditioning in practice and work on speed endurance. We have the speed but we have to maintain that speed throughout the tighter races and I think that’s what killed us in the 4x100 and 4x200. We didn’t have that speed endurance to carry us through all the way in the race.” Even though Panthers’ sprinter Kobe Robinson is slated to return to weeks before the district meet, Thurman feels his team still has a lot of work to do. “We just have to be consistent,” Thurman said. “That’s something that I’m going to have to preach to these guys and get these guys to understand. We can’t be up and down, up and down, not in track.” >> FOCUSING ON TIMES: Odessa High head girls track coach Tracey Borchardt is solely focused on improving the Lady Bronchos race times. “I don’t really look at teamto-team, I look at time-to-time,” Borchardt said. “That’s what I’m going to do for the next four weeks.” One Lady Broncho who improved Saturday was sophomore Relaya Hernandez — who won the 100 dash (12.82) as well as being the only competitor to ﬁnish the 400 dash in under a minute (58.81). Another successful Lady Broncho who won on Saturday was freshman Maylie Brito, who won the 800 run (2:28.84). “I had to plan it in my head — where I’m going, when to speed up and when to keep my pace,” Brito said about her win. “It means a lot.” Odessa High ﬁnished in second place in the standings and gave Borchardt a better idea of where her team can go this season. “To me, nothing else matters but times. I know that from weekto-week if were improving on times, I know we can still continue to improve.” >> Follow Eric Blum on Twitter @ EricBlumOA

Israel soars at World Baseball Classic, and a nation shrugs BY ARON HELLER The Associated Press
JERUSALEM Israel is the big surprise of the World Baseball Classic, upsetting three teams, generating buzz and offering a mascot like no other — “The Mensch on the Bench.” Back home, no one seems to notice. Baseball has long been overlooked in Israel, seen as an arcane and boring game. This team consists almost entirely of American pros of Jewish descent. It has been derided as a group of mercenaries with little connection to the country. Israel entered this showcase tournament ranked 41st in the world, the lowest ranked and last team to qualify. In quick succession, however, the Israelis beat third-ranked South Korea 2-1 in extra innings in the opening game before topping fourthranked Taiwan 15-7 and ninthranked the Netherlands 4-2 to ﬁnish ﬁrst in Pool A with a 3-0 record. Next up in the second round is Cuba on Sunday in Tokyo, with a chance to advance to the semiﬁnals. For the small Israeli baseball community this has been nothing short of astounding, creating a wave of pride in their disparaged sport. The country has only one baseball-speciﬁc ﬁeld and only about 1,000 active players who are well accustomed to ﬁelding incredulous questions from native-born Israelis about their funny gear and the difference between a home run and a strikeout. Israel’s WBC games haven’t been broadcast on the national sports channel and have been mentioned only brieﬂy in the media. Most Israelis likely aren’t even aware they have a national team or understand it is competing against the
In this Tuesday ﬁle photo, Israel’s pitcher Dean Kremer, right, celebrates his team’s victory with catcher Nick Rickles against Taiwan after the ﬁrst round game of the World Baseball Classic at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea. Team Israel is tearing up the World Baseball Classic, upsetting a trio of top 10 teams and generating a buzz with their plucky play, colorful fans and unusual mascot. world’s best in the sport’s most prestigious global event. That includes the country’s sport minister. Asked in a radio interview whether she was planning to travel to South Korea, Miri Regev had no idea what was happening there. When pressed, she said she knew a baseball team existed but not much more. “I may be the sports minister but I don’t pretend to know every player and every team in detail,” she said on Army Radio. “My job is to promote them. ... Obviously it is not one of the preferred ﬁelds that we invest in.”
In Israel, soccer and basketball reign. Baseball has been one of the most popular sports among American Jews, but in Israel it has mostly been the domain of a loyal group of American immigrants. It failed to catch on with the rough-and-tumble nativeborn Israelis. When it came to imported American sports, they took more of a liking to the strategy and hard hitting of football. In 2007, a group of American supporters launched the Israel Baseball League, a professional league comprised
almost entirely of foreign players. It folded after one season. Team manager Jerry Weinstein acknowledged that generating more interest in Israel was one of the team’s primary goals. “That’s what we’re trying to do, help grow the game in Israel,” he told reporters Saturday. “And I think that by playing in this (tournament) and doing well that we enlighten people’s awareness.” Support has also suffered because the team is, well, not very Israeli. Thanks to the WBC’s
“heritage rule,” its players are almost all Americans with major or minor league experiences and varying degrees of ties to Judaism and Israel. The roster includes only two Israeli citizens, both little-used pitchers, and eight of the Americans visited Israel for the ﬁrst time only two months ago to learn about the country. “Let’s stop pretending like they really represent Israel because it is doubtful that someone who doesn’t live in a country and has never visited it can truly develop affection toward it,” Guy Leiba wrote in the popular YNet website. “There is no difference between these players and African sprinters who choose to represent Arab countries for a few dollars.” Even so, a select few have jumped on the bandwagon. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has a number of American-born aides who have played baseball and softball locally, tweeted a greeting to the team as it mowed through the competition in South Korea. “We are all with you!” he wrote, with a link to a video showing the players wearing Jewish skullcaps during the playing of the national anthem in Seoul. The ritual, plus fans sporting “Jew Crew” T-shirts and the mascot with a Yiddish name — “mensch” meaning a responsible person of integrity — has given the team a far more Jewish ﬂavor than Israeli. And that, says sportscaster Gil Barak of Sports 5 TV Channel, makes it even tougher for locals to connect. Even though he covers sports for a living, Barak said he couldn’t name a single player on the team, and Israelis just couldn’t identify with such a group. “No one knows anything about the game and this is entirely alien,” he said. “It’s a sport that has no past here, has no future and has no present.”
Andrus plays for 1st time since hernia surgery THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
This is a 2017 photo of Elvis Andrus of the Texas Rangers baseball team. This image reﬂects the Rangers active roster as of Feb. 22 when this image was taken.
SURPRISE, ARIZ. After missing the first 13 games of spring training while recovering from sports hernia surgery in November, Elvis Andrus returned to shortstop for Texas, playing four innings without a ﬁelding chance and going 0 for 3 Saturday as a Rangers split squad beat the Chicago White Sox 5-1. “I hear games are a little
quiet,” Andrus said. “It’s kind of easy for me to turn it up a little bit. It’s always good to get back on the ﬁeld and bring that energy. I’m really happy with the way I feel today. I just try to get better every single day now.” Andrus grounded out twice and struck out. When Joey Gallo’s helmet tumbled off after a two-run single in the third inning, Andrus joked with his power-hitting teammate.
“I think the helmet was a little surprised he hit a base hit rather than a bomb,” Andrus said. “I was playing around with him. I let him know that getting base hits is kind of fun, too. It’s part of the game.” Texas started spring training 2-10 in Andrus’ absence. “It just shows how much we miss him really, in the dugout, on the ﬁeld, his presence and everything that he does,” Rangers
manager Jeff Banister said. “We’re a winning ballclub when he’s playing. I felt good about the at-bats he had and his presence on the dirt. I thought he had a good day.” Andrus injured his groin last May, and the hernia developed in July. Still, he set career highs with a .302 batting average, .432 slugging percentage, .369 on-base percentage, eight home runs and 69 RBIs.
Closer carousel could decide MLB season BY JAY COHEN The Associated Press
MESA, ARIZ. Mark Melancon got a big free-agent contract from the San Francisco Giants. Aroldis Chapman returned to the New York Yankees for a record-breaking deal. Kenley Jansen stayed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Wade Davis was traded to the Chicago Cubs, and the Washington Nationals looked outside before looking internally for an answer. Five of baseball’s marquee teams. A series of high-stakes decisions. A closer look at the value of closers. “There’s no magic formula. Filling that role is not different than any other role,” Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. “But I think you recognize that the relief pitching in general, guys kind of come out of nowhere and surprise you and then, with some notable exceptions, it’s not always the longest, most
consistent run for these guys. “So (we) try to be creative in how we ﬁll those roles rather than just go out and give a free agent a huge long-term deal.” Epstein and the Cubs parted with a pricey package of prospects to get Chapman from the Yankees last summer, and the hard-throwing left-hander helped Chicago to its ﬁrst World Series title since 1908. But the Cubs got Davis from Kansas City a couple of weeks before Chapman finalized an $86 million, ﬁve-year contract with New York — the richest deal ever for a relief pitcher. Davis will make $10 million this season in the ﬁnal year of his contract. Asked if there was a disparity around the game in how teams look at the role, Epstein demurred. “I think everyone would rather look in-house ﬁrst, but if you don’t have the candidates ready and you’re a team that expects to win the World Series, then you look outside,” he said.
In this Feb. 16 ﬁle photo, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen throws during a spring training baseball workout in Glendale, Ariz. On the off-season, the closer decided to stay with the Dodgers.
San Francisco and Los Angeles lost to Chicago in the NL playoffs, and what happened in each series followed the teams into the offseason. Five San Francisco relievers combined to throw away a 5-2 lead in the ninth inning of its season-ending loss to the Cubs in Game 4 of the division series. The Giants blew 32 saves last season, including nine in September. Enter Melancon, who ﬁnalized a $62 million, four-year contract with San Francisco in December. “It seems when you have a guy that is a lockdown guy it just shortens the game so much,” Giants catcher Buster Posey said. “You’re able to do some things a little bit differently and also, of course, the other team knows if they go into that last inning without the lead, they’re kind of up against it. Other than what he can just do on the mound, it just gives us a little bit of an edge overall.” Jansen was practically unhittable in the NL Championship Series against Chicago, striking out 10 while throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings. The Dodgers, who were eliminated by the Cubs in six games, then gave Jansen a blockbuster $80 million, ﬁveyear contract to remain in Los Angeles. When the dust settled for the marquee closers, Washington was left with a giant question mark at the back end of its bullpen. The NL East champions made a play for Melancon, who finished last season with the Nationals, but were outbid by the Giants, according to Washington general manager Mike Rizzo. The Nationals also tried for Jansen before he re-signed with the Dodgers.
In this Feb. 14 ﬁle photo, San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Mark Melancon throws during spring baseball practice in Scottsdale, Ariz. The closer got a big free-agent contract from the Giants. Washington could try a closerby-committee setup — a concept that seemed to be gaining steam in the sport for a while before dying down a bit — but it is hoping someone seizes the job. Shawn Kelley, Blake Treinen, Koda Glover and Joe Nathan are in the mix for the spot this spring. “There’s a very small handful of established, ninth-inning closers that are in the elite category,” Rizzo said. “We don’t have any of them. But I like the fact that we have pitchers with the ability, the skill set, the makeup and the aptitude to be a back-end-of-the-bullpen type of guy. “From Mariano Rivera, all the way down, they were all ‘ﬁrstyear closers’ at some point in their career.” The Nationals still could trade for a closer, with David Robertson from the rebuilding White Sox making a lot of sense for each side. For his part, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn doesn’t see a lot of variance in how teams value closers, but he is anticipating a change in how
they are employed after the Indians went to Andrew Miller at various different points during playoff games last year, one of a couple teams to try that strategy in the 2016 postseason. “I think whatever discrepancy you see may not necessarily be just from the notion that anyone can do it versus you need to have the guy, which I think has been decreased in recent years, that was bigger, more prevalent 12, 13 years ago, but how the closers are being used,” Hahn said. “That’s where the change has come, where you see Andrew Miller coming into a ballgame in the sixth inning because even though he may be your best reliever, the game’s on the line given the leverage of that situation. “That’s where I think you see the differentiation, not necessarily from saying ‘Well, I don’t need to spend on that guy.’ Those premium-type guys are going to still get paid. The question is, are they going to be just saved for the ninth or are you going to bring them in in the sixth, seventh or eighth?”

Erik Jones navigates rookie season without father BY MIKE CRANSTON The Associated Press
LAS VEGAS When Erik Jones climbs into his NASCAR Cup Series car Sunday, an important watch will be stowed away in his nearby motorhome. Jones reached the pinnacle of stock-car racing this year amid a void. His father Dave, the watch’s owner, died of cancer last year. Since then Jones hasn’t gone anywhere without the silver Shinola. “It’s kind of the one thing that I have that connects me back to him,” he said. The 20-year-old Cup rookie spoke about his father’s passing for the first time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway ahead of Sunday’s Kobalt 400. Jones is one of NASCAR’s hottest young drivers, going from Truck Series champion in 2015 to the Xﬁnity Series rookie of the year in 2016 to a job with Furniture Row Racing when it added a second Cup car this season. “There were deﬁnitely times over the last few weeks I would have loved to call him and just talk to him about racing and general life,” Jones said about his dad. Dave Jones was as proud of his Michigan roots as his son. The Shinola watch was made in Detroit. The elder Jones also sold another Michigan-made product, a 1965 Corvette, to help fund his son’s racing career. “I never had to worry about the money I was making or bills I was paying or anything else,” Jones said. “I would call my Dad and say, ‘Hey,
PHELAN M. EBENHACK|AP
Erik Jones (77) drives through Turn 4 during a qualifying run for the NASCAR Daytona 500 auto race at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 19 in Daytona Beach, Fla. man, I’ve got this problem or that problem and what do you think?’ And he would have an opinion or a solution. He always had the answer, I felt like. And all of a sudden you lose that so quickly.” Jones was at his North Carolina home last March when his mother called. His father had lost feeling in his arm and went to the doctor thinking he had a pinched nerve. The diagnosis was devastating: lung cancer that had spread to his brain. “It was just tough to see someone kind of fade away
over a few months,” Jones said. As his father got weaker, a surprise guest showed up to his Michigan home: car owner Joe Gibbs. He wanted Dave Jones to know the news before he even informed his son. Gibbs had brokered a deal for Jones to race in NASCAR’s top series in 2017. Jones fondly recalls the ensuing conversation with his dad. “It was cool for that moment to sit down with him and say, ‘We did it. We’re here and next year
we’re going to be at the peak, man,’” Jones said. Dave Jones passed away at 53 in June, the week of his son’s return to Michigan to race at his home track. Erik Jones insisted on driving, and he acknowledged it took him a while to adjust to life without what he called his “best friend.” “It’s too bad. I deﬁnitely thought about it at Daytona, standing out on pit road, wishing he could have been there to take it all in,” Jones said. He had mechanical issues in the No. 77 Toyota at the season-opening
Daytona 500. Jones started 34, crashed, and ended 39th. He showed improvement with a 14thplace ﬁnish at Atlanta last week and qualiﬁed eighth for Sunday’s race. And with Jones’ career on the rise, he’s earned the ﬁnancial security to make a sentimental purchase: his father’s old ‘65 Corvette. “I had finally gotten to the point about a year ago when I said, ‘Man, I can ﬁnally start thinking about buying this car back for him.’ And he got sick,” Jones said. “But I found the guy and got the car back.
“Now it’s just hanging out.” Here are some other things to watch as NASCAR begins its threerace Western swing at the 1.5-mile oval Sunday: >> HARVICK’S MIND: How will Kevin Harvick respond after leading 292 laps at Atlanta, only to ﬁnish ninth because of a pit-road speeding penalty? “It doesn’t sting any more than anything else,” Harvick said. “It’s not the first time I’ve blown a race or lost a race or had something happen. And I’ve been on the other side of that, too, and capitalized on other people making mistakes.” >> WATCH YOUR SPEED: There’s apprehension about NASCAR’s new pit road timing lines. Jimmie Johnson was also penalized twice at Atlanta. “This weekend will be brutal because we’ve never had these timing lines at Vegas and Vegas is notoriously difﬁcult on speeders,” Daytona 500 champ Kurt Busch said. >> FRONT ROW INTRIGUE: Brad Kesewlowski, who won at Atlanta last week and at Las Vegas last year, will start from the pole. Martin Truex starts second, but had to sit out 15 minutes of Saturday’s ﬁnal practice session after his car failed its ﬁrst two trips through the template station before Friday’s qualifying. Truex had to start from the rear in the Daytona 500 for having a car that was too low in the qualifying race.
Hadwin extends lead to 4 strokes at Valspar BY DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press
Adam Hadwin follows through on a drive on the 11th hole during the third round of the Valspar Championship golf tournament Saturday at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Fla.
PALM HARBOR, FLA. Adam Hadwin only wants a chance to win when he tees it up on the PGA Tour, and he’s never had a chance like this one. Birdie putts from 35 feet and 55 feet on the back nine Saturday at the Valspar Championship stretched his lead to four shots. Equally important to him was the slick, bending 6-foot par putt on the ﬁnal hole. “Three shots is much easier to come back from than four shots is,” Hadwin said after a clean card of 4-under 67. “That extra shot could be everything tomorrow. That was a big putt
for me, I think, mentally going into tomorrow.” The 29-year-old Canadian overcame a brief bout of nerves on the practice range with a ﬂawless day in a strong, warm breeze on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook. That 6-foot par putt made it 31 straight holes without a bogey, put him at 14under 199 and gave him the fourshot lead over Patrick Cantlay. It was the third time in the last four PGA Tour events the 54-hole leader was up by at least four shots, and all of them won comfortably — Jordan Spieth at Pebble Beach, Dustin Johnson at Riviera and Rickie Fowler at PGA National. More than a big lead, there
is not a lot of experience chasing the Canadian. Of the three players within six shots of him, only Jim Herman has experienced winning on the PGA Tour. Herman won the Shell Houston Open last year for his ﬁrst victory. He had a 71 playing in the ﬁnal group and fell ﬁve shots behind. PGA Tour rookie Dominic Bozzelli had a 70 and was at 8-under 205. Hadwin also had a 54-hole lead in the CareerBuilder Challenge when he shot 59 in the third round. He closed with a 70 and was runner-up to Hudson Swafford. He started that ﬁnal round with a one-shot lead over Bozzelli.

Opening lead: Ace of ♣ Today’s deal was played in a tournament pair game some years ago. Overtricks are very important at this form of scoring and careful declarer play is often rewarded. South was Richie Schwartz, an expert who splits his time between South Florida and New York City. The defense started with two high clubs before West shifted to the king of spades. We don’t know for certain, but we expect that this unusual shift was the result of a “suit-preference signal” by East on the second club — the deuce on the first club to show count and the nine on the second club to suggest spades. 10 tricks were easy, assuming a normal split in trumps. The challenge was to find the overtrick. Schwartz won the spade shift with his ace and played the ace of hearts. You might not think that the problem on this deal would be to find an extra entry to the excellent South hand. Schwartz was fully aware of this and played dummy’s four of hearts on the ace. Declarer continued by cashing the ace and king of diamonds, and then ruffing a diamond with dummy’s jack of trumps. He led the five of trumps to his king and ruffed another diamond, this time with dummy’s eight of trumps. This established his long diamond as a winner, and he led the carefully preserved two of diamonds to his three. The long diamond provided a discard for dummy’s losing spade and Schwartz had his precious overtrick. Well played!

‘THERE IS BEAUTY EVERYWHERE’

‘Thunderhead artist’ labors to show beauty Parks ﬁnished a long career in banking before going into art full time BY BOB CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org
MIDLAND Driving a tractor on his father’s farm, Don Lee Parks was always fascinated by the big cloudladen skies but didn’t know at the time that they were fueling his future landscape artistry. “I saw clouds all day, and I’m sure that inﬂuenced my appreciation of skies,” he said. “Clouds are fascinating because you will never see the same formation for the rest of your life.” Parks grew up at Seymour, north of Abilene, where he ﬁrst felt the painterly inclinations that he gradually expressed while taking bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural economics at Texas Tech University and pursuing a 28-year career in banking. “They gave us one piece of paper a week in the fourth grade to draw whatever we wanted,” he said. “That was my favorite hour. I also made model airplanes and did leather
tooling of horses and antelopes, so it was a hidden desire.” He was an Air Force supply ofﬁcer, a Texas A&M ag economist in the College Station area, a trust real estate ofﬁcer at banks in Corpus Christi and Midland and an administrator at Stonegate Fellowship until becoming a full-time artist in 2006. He and his wife, Minda, have two children and four grandchildren. Parks is part of a group of landscape artists that has a show at Haley Memorial Library & History Center each fall, and one of his bigger works, “Boomtown,” of a 1926 oilﬁeld scene near McCamey, was enlarged into a 12-by-53-foot mural at the Petroleum Museum. Having studied with such well-known artists as Scott Christensen of Victor, Idaho, Ovanes Berberian of Rigby, Idaho, and Clyde Aspevig of Bozeman, Mont., he worked in water colors for 15 years before going to oils in the mid1980s. “The keys to being a
realistic artist are to take classes with professionals, read lots of art books, paint outside and paint a lot of pictures,” said Parks, 74. “But I’m never going to learn exactly how to do it the way it needs to be done. It’s a moving target.” Estimating he’s sold more than 1,000 paintings, Parks said, “God’s creation has a powerful impact. “He gives us this beautiful world to live in because He loves us so much. I like to go out and see what catches my eye, and sometimes it’s overwhelming. There is beauty everywhere.” Parks has supplied galleries in Santa Fe, Ruidoso and Dallas, but now sells from his large studio adjacent to his 4310 Tumbleweed Trail home. His paintings range from $350 to $17,000, including the frames. Working up to nine hours a day, six days a week, Parks favors scenes from the Big Bend and Hill Country, starting on location and ﬁnishing with photos and his “reference library of colors” on 400 six-by-eight-inch canvases. But he gets inspiration just about everywhere he goes, including Arizona, California, Idaho and Italy. “I was studying for an ag economics test in the Tech library in my sopho-
more year when I noticed a bunch of art books and started looking at them,” he said. “I bought some paint the next day and was painting in my dorm room that weekend. I enjoyed it, but I never dreamed I could make a living at it.” Parks’ dad C.C. was a farmer who worked for Shell Pipeline. His mom was the former Cleo Powell of Rankin, and he has a brother, Carl, of Dimmitt. The farm where Parks’ appreciation of clouds began was one C.C. leased in Floyd County, northeast of Lubbock. Haley Memorial Library Director J. Pat McDaniel said Parks “is the preeminent thunderhead artist
of West Texas. “Don’s thunderheads and vistas are extremely well-liked by homeowners and commercial installations as well,” McDaniel said. “Besides being a great guy, he is able to communicate beauty in the environment we live in. What distinguishes great artists is their ability to depict what they see. They’ve got to understand what they’re looking at, and Don is acutely focused on his craft.” Parks said one of the ﬁne points of landscape painting, depicting light, “is kind of a trick because the sun is four hundred times brighter than any paint that comes out of a tube. “Ovanes Berberian says

Parks: www.donparksﬁne art.com to make the whole painting a little darker and push the values, or the darkness or lightness of any color relative to all the other colors, closer together,” he said. “You develop your style unintentionally. Paint the best you can on everything you approach, and eventually you start having your own particular way of doing it.” >> See PARKS Page 3E
Stop and smell the roses BY LINDA CRANFILL Master Gardener
GARDENING TEXAS MASTER GARDENERS
>> We are an educational service organization of volunteers trained by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Visit westtexas gardening.org
Last spring the Permian Basin saw an amazing rose bloom due to the mild winter. Consider adding roses to your landscape this year. First to consider is the location of the rose. Roses in West Texas do best with morning sun and some afternoon shade. Some can do well in full sun. Many grow in containers with great success. It all depends upon the rose you select. Soil can be amended but if you select a rose that does not grow well with our slightly alkaline water, then you must use rainwater or O.R. to get good results.
At the Master Gardener’s plant sale, we will offer a few roses that can be grown in containers, used for a front border; a variety of roses that grow from three to four feet; and roses that have grown up to six feet. We look for roses that are drought tolerant, disease resistant, and mid to low level of water required. No rose can exist without water, but there are some that can do well with low water once established. But, water is required for getting it established. If you are interested in growing roses, you need to become familiar with the types of roses. There are Drift, Floribunda, Grandiﬂora, Hybrid Teas, Miniatures, Climbers
and Knock-Out. An Earth-Kind rose is designated by A&M Extension after extensive research in various soil types and locations. It may be any of the above roses if they meet the standards of Earth-Kind. Knock-out is a patient rose. Before you head to the store to buy a rose, you need to decide what type you require. Most people today want an easy care, no fuss rose that will provide beautiful blooms several times. Beware that no rose has continuous bloom. Most have a mass of bloom with a period of rest, then bloom again. Also, weather, water and soil conditions can affect the bloom. Most roses take at least one

Some brides say yes to selling their wedding dress THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK Dalia Rhodes’ wedding dress went down the aisle twice: Once at her wedding in 2015, and again a year later after she sold her gown to a stranger online. “I just wanted someone else to enjoy a pretty dress,” says Rhodes, who used the website Once Wed to sell it for $800,
about half of what she originally paid. Instead of holding on to wedding dresses for decades, many new brides are willing to swap them online for cash. Several websites cater to them, including Still White and PreownedWedding Dresses.com. And other online marketplaces, such as eBay, Tradesy and Letgo, are ﬁlled with
thousands of wedding dresses looking for a new bride. Just the idea of buying a used wedding dress was “shocking and horrifying” before 2008, says Tracy DiNunzio, the founder and CEO of online clothing and accessories marketplace Tradesy. That began to change about a decade ago during the recession, when cash-
strapped brides were looking for a deal, she says. Now millennials, who seemingly are not as attached to material things as past generations, are putting up their dresses for sale, says DiNunzio. “The money is worth more to them once the wedding is over than keeping a dress,” she says.
Newly-married couple Heidi and Rob Cundari are seen after their wedding recently in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Heidi says she opted for a used dress to keep costs down.

JOHN LITHGOW PERFORMANCES
“The World According to Garp”
“The Twilight Zone: The Movie”
Nicholas D’Agosto (left) and John Lithgow
musician and children’s-book author says. “It was so completely original. I mean, primetime true-crime documentary series were completely teed up for a great satire, a great parody. Nobody has done this yet, and it was brilliantly written. And I loved the challenge of playing a part who at any given moment could completely, plausibly have committed or not committed this crime. This seemed to me a wonderful kind of magic trick to pull off, and I love challenges like that. “They created a character for which this trick can work,” adds Lithgow. “He’s completely driven by his id. It’s completely unedited. He has no sense of priority or proportion. The tiniest things have absolutely as much importance to him as the crime of murder, and you see it in the very first moment of the series, in that 911 call. The cable guy and the death of his wife are equal emergencies. This is the stuff of just fantastic comedy, very much like Dick Solomon in ‘3rd Rock from the Sun.’ He was driven by his id, too, and yet they are very, very different characters.” “Trial & Error” creator and executive producer Jeff Astrof (“Ground Floor,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine”) explains that a murdertrial documentary titled “The Staircase” was the inspiration for the new show, and Warner Bros. Television suggested partnering him with dramaseries veteran Matt Miller (“Lethal Weapon,” “Forever”). “The two of us, it was a match made in Hebrew school,” Astrof muses. “The timing was really great, because right at the time everybody was watching ‘The Jinx’ and ‘Serial.’ And we had handed in our script, and that’s when ‘Making a Murderer’ came out. And we were just like, ‘If we don’t do this now, someone else is going to do it.”’ Lithgow says he and his current colleagues all have “their own particular version of the ‘Trial & Error’ sense of humor. We just make each other laugh like crazy all the time. My favorite work has been in great ensembles, and this goes with theater and television and even film, where half the time you never even meet the people you are acting with. One thing I absolutely love about acting is the community spirit of it.”
AT & T U-Verse
John Lithgow has been seen making a murderer before, but a new spoof of true-crime shows poses the question, “Is he or isn’t he?” The five-time Emmy winner for projects including “3rd Rock From the Sun” – honored recently with a Screen Actors Guild Award for his Winston Churchill portrayal in Netflix’s “The Crown” – returns to series duty in NBC’s sitcom “Trial & Error,” premiering with back-to-back episodes Tuesday, March 14. Previously lethal as the Trinity Killer on “Dexter,” Lithgow now plays small-town poetry professor Larry Henderson, suspected of slaying his wife ... which draws murder-case-novice Josh Segal (Nicholas D’Agosto, “Gotham”), an attorney from New York, to South Carolina to defend him. The lawyer doesn’t get much help from his client, whose quirks only make him look increasingly culpable of the crime. Sherri Shepherd (“The View”) and Steven Boyer (“Orange Is the New Black”) play Segal’s assistants, though their “help” often is questionable, and “Glee” alum Jayma Mays co-stars as a prosecutor eager to send Henderson up the river. The suspect’s daughter (Krysta Rodriguez, “Smash”) and Segal develop a romantic interest in each other, complicating the case even more. Filmed in the style of a documentary, “Trial & Error” appealed to Lithgow from the start. “I loved the whole idea,” the pleasant actor,

It’s a case of ‘Trial & Error’ for John Lithgow in NBC true-crime satire
“Terms of Endearment”
“The World According to Garp” (1982) Playing a former NFL tight end turned transsexual, Lithgow’s Roberta Muldoon served as a sounding board and sympathetic ear to Robin Williams’ troubled title character in this solid adaptation of John Irving’s popular novel. The role earned the actor a well-deserved supporting actor Oscar nod. “The Twilight Zone: The Movie” (1983) Lithgow took it over the top as a delirious airline passenger who can’t get anyone to believe that there is a gremlin out on the wing trying to sabotage the aircraft in this 1980s update of the classic anthology series. “Terms of Endearment” (1983) Lithgow earned a second supporting Oscar nod for his performance as a married banker having an affair with a younger woman (Debra Winger)
in James L. Brooks’ Academy Award-winning drama. “2010: The Year We Make Contact” (1984) Lithgow played it straight as a NASA engineer trying to determine why the onboard computer HAL-9000 killed the crew from a previous mission while a monumental event unfolds on Jupiter in one of filmdom’s most underrated space adventures. “Footloose” (1984) The actor took on an authoritarian air playing a pastor trying to maintain a ban on dancing in his small Midwestern town in this tuneful romance/ drama. “Cliffhanger” (1993) Lithgow showed he could play the villain as the manic leader of a failed U.S. Treasury heist in this otherwise forgettable actioner. “Third Rock From the Sun” (199601) Lithgow turned in a comic tour-de-force
playing the childish high commander of an alien unit posing as a human family on Earth in this acclaimed comedy series that was a fixture at Emmy time. Lithgow himself took home three best actor statuettes during the series’ run. “Dexter” (2009) Lithgow put in perhaps his darkest turn playing the Trinity Killer in the fourth season of the Showtime drama. For his efforts, he took home Golden Globe and Emmy awards. “The Crown” (2016) The lanky 6-foot4-inch Lithgow climbed into the skin of portly 5-foot-8-inch British Prime Minister Winston Churchill with startling effectiveness in this Golden Globe-winning drama series about the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. His technique? “I simply thought small,” the actor quipped.

SUNDAY DAYTIME 8 AM
The time machine is the key to stopping John (Josh Bowman) — alias Jack the Ripper, alias the “Key Killer” — from claiming his next victim in the smartly titled new episode “Out of Time.” Wells and Jane (Freddie Stroma, Genesis Rodriguez) have to fix the travel device in order to stop the murder wave. Vanessa (Nicole Ari Parker) debates whether to come clean with Griffin (Will Chase). Jennifer Ferrin also stars. 8 p.m. on CBS-7 Madam Secretary
Though international dealings often mean exercising a personal touch, one such encounter goes too far for Elizabeth’s (Tea Leoni) comfort in the new episode “Break in Diplomacy.” The new president of the Philippines (guest star Joel de la Fuente) shows an interest in her that goes beyond their negotiations over a proposed treaty that he opposes. Henry (Tim Daly) worries that an embedded agent is in danger from a religious cult. Bebe Neuwirth also stars. 8 p.m. on FOOD Spring Baking Championship
Nine of the best bakers in the United States gather to show off their skills as another season of this popular culinary competition gets underway with host Jesse Palmer. In the season premiere, “Easter Treats,” the competitors are challenged to create Easter egg desserts and bunny cakes, presenting their best efforts to judges Nancy Fuller, Duff Goldman and Lorraine Pascale.

The backgrounds of some of London’s most distinctive landmarks are probed in this special. The political intrigue of the House of Commons and the House of Lords is considered, as are some of the more questionable aspects of Westminster Abbey — such as extortion and death. Numerous coronations and royal weddings have been staged at the Abbey, but this hour concerns itself much more with its notso-public, less-than-glowing operations over history.

Benito Martinez stars in “American Crime” on ABC. 8:30 p.m. on FOX-24 The Last Man on Earth A now-dangerous Melissa (January Jones) starts playing psychological tricks on the others, who could suffer lasting harm from them, in the new episode “The Spirit of St. Lewis.” Todd (Mel Rodriguez) is among those who try to stop — and help — her by using medical means. Lewis (Kenneth Choi) sets out on his own. Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra Coleman also star. 9 p.m. on ABC-2 American Crime The appropriately titled “Season Three: Episode One” opens a new round of creator and executive producer John Ridley’s drama anthology, now focused on questionable labor practices found at a North Carolina farm by a man (returnee Benito Martinez) seeking his missing son. Regina King, who won Emmys for the show’s first two seasons, also is back; so are Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton. Cherry Jones (“24”) and Janel Moloney (“The West Wing”) join the cast. 9 p.m. on NBC-9 Shades of Blue Wozniak (Ray Liotta) opposes FBI man Stahl (Warren Kole) with full force over mayoral prospect Julia Ayers (guest star Anna Gunn, “Breaking Bad”) in the new episode “Eye of the Hurricane.” Harlee’s (Jennifer Lopez) latest case has a link to her past. A newcomer to the precinct causes worry for officers who don’t want their secrets discovered. Margaret Colin also guest stars. Drea de Matteo, Vincent Laresca and Sarah Jeffery also star. 9:02 p.m. on TLC Who Do You Think You Are? She’s best known for her Emmy-winning role as part of a comically dysfunctional extended clan on “Modern Family,” but tonight’s new episode finds actress Julie Bowen exploring her own real-life family roots. Her findings are mixed, to say the least, starting with the shocking discovery that a beloved relative played a leading role in a sinister organization that helped trigger some dark days in American history. On a happier note, another ancestor risked life and limb to fight for the freedom of African-Americans.

Nick Viall stars in “The Bachelor” on ABC.
7 p.m. on ABC-2 The Bachelor Presumably, someone will leave in tears while the other finalist revels in the joy of getting the last rose — and a potential proposal — from Nick Viall, as the show’s 21st season draws to its inevitable conclusion with him choosing the woman he wants to be with for ... well, however long it lasts. Host Chris Harrison helps all the parties involved get ready for the critical moments. The traditional “After the Final Rose” postscript special follows immediately. 7 p.m. on FOX-24 24: Legacy One of the franchise’s familiar faces returns in the new episode “6:00 PM-7:00 PM”: Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida, who went from being a CTU operative to an embittered and vengeful enemy of the organization. He factors in as Rebecca (Miranda Otto) seeks the help of an outsider in moving the current investigation forward. Carter (Corey Hawkins) tries to recover vital evidence with Andy’s (Dan Bucatinsky) help. Jimmy Smits, Anna Diop and Teddy Sears also star. 7 p.m. on KPBT-36 Antiques Roadshow Nothing less than one of the 20th century’s most iconic pop-culture events is recalled in the first hour of a visit to Albuquerque, as an original program and jacket from the legendary Woodstock folk-rock festival are among the items assessed for their modern value. Also evaluated for their present-day prices: a silk wedding gown circa 1875, and a Jane Peterson oil painting from the mid-1920s. One of the antiques is worth $300,000. Mark L. Walberg is the host. 7 p.m. on FREE Young & Hungry Gabi and Josh (Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski) try to prove to their very skeptical friends that they won’t let anything like “feelings” complicate their new relationship status as friends with benefits as this hit sitcom opens Season 5 with “Young & Punch Card.” Almost immediately, however, this new situation complicates Sofia’s (Aimee Carrero) plot to persuade a co-worker to ask her out.

Nicholas D’Agosto stars in “Trial & Error” on NBC. 9 p.m. on ABC-2 People Icons Though the premiere of this series was celebrity-driven, the new episode “Heroes & Survivors” tells extraordinary stories of ordinary people, including Jessica McClure — who, as “Baby Jessica,” riveted the entire nation as others tried to rescue her from a Texas well in 1987. Also featured: a college student who survived not just one plane crash, but two; and a woman who lost her legs while saving her children from tornadoes. Lara Spencer is the host. 9 p.m. on SPIKE Adam Carolla and Friends Build Stuff Live Live TV and radio hold no fears for veteran host and sidekick Adam Carolla, but he ups the degree of difficulty in this new series venture by adding home renovation jobs, performed live. Joining him will be some of his best-known Hollywood celebrity pals, starting with Jimmy Kimmel in tonight’s series premiere. 9 p.m. on USA Chrisley Knows Best Todd tasks Chase with marketing the juice bar to boost business, a challenge Chase readily accepts. Unfortunately, he soon discovers to his disappointment that fresh juice doesn’t sell itself, in the new episode “Market Crash.” Back at home, Julie and Todd worry about Savannah, who’s convalescing there after a car accident. 9:01 p.m. on NBC-9 Trial & Error “Making a Murderer” and other true-crime shows take swipes from this new sitcom, casting multiple Emmy winner John Lithgow as a Southern professor who’s the chief suspect in his wife’s murder. Nicholas D’Agosto (“Gotham”) also stars as a novice attorney sent from New York to represent the man, but the client gives him little help in building a solid defense. Jayma Mays (“Glee”) also stars in “Chapter 1: A Big Crime in a Small Town.” 9:02 p.m. on TLC She’s in Charge Two new cases occupy the attention of Veronica “Pooh” Nash-Poleate in the new episode “Pooh’s the Boss.” First, she helps Ashley Wilson Hawn, a bath products company executive, re-establish the corporate pecking order with a mouthy and insubordinate employee. Later, she tries to help a pair of baby-stressed parents find time for private passion. At home, Pooh tries to pull off a surprise birthday party for her 92-year-old grandmother.

Cappe dives head first into the decadent dishes of ‘Carnival Eats’ Carnival food has long been famous – or infamous – for its three basic food groups: carbs, sugar and fat. But that hasn’t stopped Noah Cappe from forging ahead. As host of “Carnival Eats,” which opens its fourth season Thursday, March 9, on Cooking Channel, the Toronto native regularly puts himself in harm’s way to sample outsized burgers, heart attack-inducing fried foods and confections guaranteed to put you in sugar shock, all so you don’t have to. Or maybe you want to. Hey, nobody ever said the stuff isn’t delicious. “It’s like my stomach was just destined to do this,” Cappe says of his apparent internal fortitude. “The craziest part of the four seasons and approaching 400 foods that I’ve put into my body, the only time I’ve gotten any food-related sickness over my four years of filming was on my day off in Toronto last season. So it didn’t even have anything to do with the fair. Unreal, maybe it’s just my destiny.” The new season once again takes Cappe across the country to sample the imaginative, decadent and downright weird dishes being prepared at American carnivals, ranging from the bacon peanut butter and jelly quesadilla in Indiana, to the deep-fried chili dog in Oregon and the rib pop in California. In Thursday’s season opener, Cappe touches down at the Big Butler Fair in Prospect, Pa., where he takes on “the Conevore,” essentially a big ice cream cone filled with smoked meat. “A huge part of what these guys and girls have to come up with is transportability, a way to get this food around the fairgrounds,” Cappe explains. “So getting things on a stick is always a big one. You see corndogs and whatever, it’s always on a stick. “But this guy,” he continues, “has found a way to actually put your full meat-based lunch inside a cone so you can one-hand it and just walk around and play games with the other hand. It’s really the best of both worlds. We haven’t run all the official tests yet but I think these cooks are geniuses.”
What book are you currently reading? “Well, I’ve gotten into audio books. ... This book called ‘Red Notice,’ which is the story of Bill Browder and the world of high finance ... . What a crazy story, like murder and treason, I mean all of this stuff that unfolds. A very cool story. ... I’m reading that and I’m also reading Tina Fey’s ‘Bossypants’ – and by reading I mean listening to my audio book.” What did you have for dinner last night? “Last night, my wife and I made Tunisian freekeh stew. ... You know it’s fancy food when you can’t even pronounce what you made. But a Tunisian freekeh stew with roasted chick peas in the oven and then a dollop of yogurt on top. It was supertasty. I think we nailed it.” What is your next project? “Well, we start filming ‘The Bachelor Canada,’ which I am the host of ... in just over a month.” When was your last vacation, where and why? “We actually did an unbelievable trip over the December holidays to Patagonia, which is a region that runs through Argentina and Chile ... . Really, it’s one of the most unbelievable trips I’ve ever been on. There was one place in particular when I was standing there, I consciously thought to myself, ‘This is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in real life with my own eyes.’ It was just like an amazing trip. Super awesome.”

Gordon Ramsay is the host and, along with Christina Tosi, a judge. 8 p.m. on NBC-9 Chicago Med The hospital staff loses one of its own to suicide in the new episode “Monday Mourning,” leaving the others to deal with their related emotions while still handling cases.

Andy Daly stars in “Review” on Comedy Central. reaction is. If it’s critical enough, they may have to leave the competition — which could spare them from being involved in the intense rivalries that show themselves at elimination time. Hannah Simone (“New Girl”) is the host. 9 p.m. on NBC-9 The Blacklist: Redemption The hunt for fugitives becomes more complicated when the existence of the prison they fled is barely known, as the new episode “Operation Davenport” confirms. Tom (Ryan Eggold) and his comrades seek terrorists who are on the loose, possibly near the covert Manhattan site they broke out of. Scottie’s (Famke Janssen) discoveries about her late spouse may reveal facts about Tom. Terry O Quinn (“Lost”) guest stars. Edi Gathegi and Tawny Cypress also star. 9 p.m. on COM Review If you’re not familiar with this consistently funny and gratifyingly weird little comedy series, now’s the time to rectify that oversight, as Andy Daly returns for his third and final season as Forrest MacNeil, an earnest critic who devotes his days to reviewing, not films, books or TV, but life experiences. Having survived a near-fatal fall that capped Season 2, Andy is inexplicably more convinced than ever that his commentaries are immensely important. Tonight’s topic: putting a pet to sleep. 9 p.m. on FX Baskets Few would argue that Martha (Martha Kelly) doesn’t have many lovely qualities, such as a sweet disposition, but equally few would suggest strong intestinal fortitude and a will of iron are among them. She takes a baby step in that direction, however, in the new episode “Yard Sale,” which finds Martha getting the hang of a new skill: haggling. Zach Galifianakis and Louie Anderson also star. 9 p.m. on USA Colony Will, Katie and Broussard (Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Tory Kittles) all search for a way out of the colony in a new episode called “Lost Boy.” Meanwhile, Maddie (Amanda Righetti) gets some visitors in the Green Zone, while Bram (Alex Neustaedter) looks for closure. Peter Jacobson also stars.
7 p.m. on NBC-9 Grimm
Nick and Eve (David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch) are transported to strange surroundings in the new episode “Where the Wild Things Were.” Trying to retrieve them becomes complicated for their allies, who tenuously seek assistance from Capt. Renard (Sasha Roiz) — who has a personal stake in the situation, thanks to Diana (guest star Hannah R. Loyd). Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee also star. 7 p.m. on MAX1 Movie: Lights Out
David F. Sandberg made his well-received feature directorial debut with this 2016 chiller, which he adapted from a short film he had made earlier for a competition. Maria Bello stars as Sophie, a mentally ill woman, whose life is further complicated, along with the lives of her two children (Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman), by a supernatural entity that emerges only when the lights are out to terrorize and attack those around it. Alexander DiPersia and Billy Burke also star. 7:31 p.m. on ABC-2 Dr. Ken
Yearning for a promotion, Pat (Dave Foley) asks Ken (Ken Jeong) to put in a good word for him with Charles Evans (guest star Rhys Darby), the CEO of Welltopia and a personal pal of Ken. Things take an decidedly awkward turn, though, when Ken discovers Charles actually plans to fire Pat in the new episode “Ken and the CEO.” Meanwhile, Clark (Jonathan Slavin) suspects Damona (Tisha Campbell Martin) and Pat are dating again. Suzy Nakamura, Dana Lee and Krista Marie Yu also star.

A music producer who definitely wasn’t loved by everyone is located — in a mummified state — aboard a yacht in “Mummies & Meltdowns.” As Rosewood (Morris Chestnut) tries to determine who hated the victim that much, he also tries to deal with some unsettling personal information. Sam Huntington, Eric Winter and Janel Parrish (“Pretty Little Liars”) guest star. Jaina Lee Ortiz, Lorraine Toussaint and Eddie Cibrian also star.

“Animals” airs on HBO. 8 p.m. on KPBT-36 Great Performances “Dudamel Conducts the Verdi Requiem at the Hollywood Bowl” finds music director Gustavo Dudamel leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a performance of one of the legendary compositions in the entire history of the arts. Soprano Julianna Di Giacomo, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, tenor Vittorio Griglio and bass-baritone Ildebrando D’Arcangelo are the featured soloists. 8:01 p.m. on FOX-24 Sleepy Hollow The vault gets an apparent intruder in the new episode “The Way of the Gun,” but as Crane (Tom Mison) and the team learn more about who she is, they realize she ultimately might be valuable to them. Alex (Rachel Melvin) has reason to get a grip on her emotions. Kamar de los Reyes continues his guest role. Janina Gavankar, Lyndie Greenwood, Jeremy Davies and Oona Yaffe also star. 9 p.m. on SHOW1 SXSW Comedy With Natasha Leggero Part 2 The first part of this two-part special aired way back last summer, but the conclusion makes its debut tonight, as “Another Period” star and co-creator Natasha Leggero welcomes a lineup of top-flight comedy talents that include Emo Phillips, Sean Patton, Ian Edwards, Kurt Braunohler and Eliza Skinner to the massively popular festival in Austin, Texas. 10:30 p.m. on HBO1 Animals Don’t look for adorable puppies and cute kittens in this quirky animated series from Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, who turn their edgy focus instead to the far less cuddly and somewhat downtrodden creatures that lead a more hard-scrabble life on and under the mean streets of New York City. This late-night series somewhat flew under the radar of many viewers during Season 1, but generated enough interest to prompt the pay network to order these 10 new episodes, starting with the Season 2 premiere, “Rats.”

SATURDAY DAYTIME 8 AM
NASCAR’s XFINITY Series enters the spotlight from Phoenix International Raceway in Arizona for the running of the DC Solar 200. Kyle Busch, who frequently races in each of NASCAR’s circuits, won last year’s race and has six victories in this race overall. Still, fans like seeing up-and-coming drivers in this series like Spencer Gallagher and Tyler Reddick, who both drove in the Craftsman Truck Series and now get the opportunity to show their stuff in a stock car. 7 p.m. on NBC-9 Movie: Fast Five
A decade after it began, the “Fast and the Furious” franchise still had plenty of life left, as indicated by the huge box-office success of this fifth chapter. Released in 2011, it reinvents the series to be as much crime caper as racing saga, with Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and their allies caught in the middle of two forces pursuing them in Rio de Janeiro. Dwayne Johnson and Jordana Brewster (“Dallas”) also star. 7 p.m. on HBO1 Movie: Ice Age: Collision Course
The fifth installment in the successful computer-animated comedy series, this 2016 entry finds Manny, Sid, Diego (voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary) and the rest of the herd forced to leave home after Scrat’s impromptu adventure in outer space sends an asteroid hurtling toward Earth. Josh Peck, Seann William Scott, Simon Pegg and Jennifer Lopez also are heard in the large voice cast of the film, which earned a healthy return at the international box office, despite generally poor reviews.
