The Voice of Seguin Today

Seguin's 2020 MLK Celebration kicks off tonight MLK Holiday observance adds another day, committee notes changes to this year's schedule

Saturday because before, we did the Taste of Soul. We are not doing that this year. That made the committee tired," said Lee.

By Cindy Aguirre-Herrera

(Seguin) -- Seguin's annual MLK Celebration will not only be bigger this year. It will also host a number of new changes -- changes that the MLK Planning Committee is excited to unveil.

Perhaps the third change in this year's schedule is the most exciting for the MLK Committee. Lee says the annual Symbolic March not only will be going a different direction this year but it will include some additional festivities in downtown Seguin.

The first change is that the annual observance for the slain civil rights leader is adding a day to its schedule. The Martin Luther King Day Jr. celebration which begins tonight will go from four days to five days. Regina Lee, a member of the Seguin MLK Planning Committee, says things this year will kick-off tonight with an event being hosted by the Seguin Baptists Minister's Union. "We've entered a new decade. We've seen changes in the past. We are doing changes within our committee and with the concept of MLK because this year, we are going to start on Thursday night. We starting on Thursday night and we are going to support the Baptist Minister's Union who will start with prayer service on Thursday night at 7 o'clock, First Baptist Church. They have to take control but we are their with our presence. So, we are going to start on Thursday night. Everybody will be fresh and that will help us get ready for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and even Monday," said Lee. Lee notes, however, that the event is not anything new but that the additional day allows the group to further incorporate and support a long standing tradition that for years has already been happening in Seguin on that actual MLK Day holiday held on Monday.

Darren Dunn, KWED and Seguin Daily News general manager, right, sits down with MLK Planning Committee Members Regina Lee and Herman Lampkin to discuss some changes being made with this year's annual celebration. is something to energize us and encourage us -"Thursday is a new idea in terms of the Baptist something really positive and so that we can Ministers. They have been doing Monday night support them because in the past, our commitfor years. But by Monday night, people are so tee didn't support them very well because by tired and already ready to go back to work on that time, we were tired," said Lee. Tuesday. We approached them and asked them Lee says the second change to the MLK weekif they would actually flip the script and start us end celebration involves the annual Taste of off. So, they are bringing Pastor (Dr. Lester J.) Soul, a free soul food sampling event for the Gillespie from San Antonio to do some speak- community. ing. It's not going to be long and drawn out. We aren't passing around the collection plate but it "Saturday is going to be a whole different

"First of all, we have found that we have really great response on Monday. We had some children from a school in La Vernia who came to march. They were not off from school but they were allowed out of class for x amount of time and they came over here and actually marched. So that got us thinking. We would get people to march and then they would disperse. We have been blessed with years upon years with decent weather and we are hoping that that continues so what we are going to do this year and we are definitely flipping the script, we are going to start at TLU. We are going to start at TLU in the Wupperman (Little) Theater. We are going to have a very short program. It's going to be a gathering program which we used to do at the (Central) park. It's a gathering program and we will march from TLU down to Central Square. When you get to Central Square, we will have music. We will have a speaker. That's Mike Washington and we are going to have food trucks down there. So there will be food down there. There will be bathroom facilities and there will be plenty of people. If the weather doesn't cooperate. If God decides we need rain that day, then we will start at TLU and we will stay there," said Lee. See M.L.K., page 2

Route changes being made during this year's MLK Symbolic March M.L.K., continued from page 1 The annual MLK Day March will begin at 11 a.m. Monday at TLU's Little Wupperman Theater. The march will continue east on Court Street to Central Park with this year's guest speaker and former Texas Lutheran "College" Quarterback Mike Washington taking the podium at 12:15 p.m. Derric Bogany, also a member of the MLK Planning Committee, says he too is excited about these changes to this year's now five day celebration in Seguin. Bogany says every change was made in hopes of bringing even more people together.

"I'm excited about this year because we are going to unite the community and just starting off with the Baptist Ministers Union like we already stated, the thing was we weren't really supporting them like we should have because of tiredness so this way, they can start off and this is to help them rejuvenate this effort that they are doing because sometimes, everyone is tired and now you really not supporting this effort here and this was a way for the MLK Committee and the Baptist Ministers Union to strengthen our bond with working together with this. There's plans for other things later on in the year with other committees that are going forth for us to pull together so I'm just excited about us coming together and being able to support one another,” said Bogany. Also included in this year's schedule is Friday's Seguin ISD Choir

Showcase from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Seguin High School Performing Arts Center as well as Saturday's annual Dinner Theatre featuring the performance "Entertaining Angels" written and directed by Que Samuels. The dinner theatre which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Seguin Coliseum is the only ticket required event for the weekend. Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased at Seguin Radio KWED. Also rounding out this year's schedule is Sunday's annual Gospel Fest. The event will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church located at 1314 E. Cedar St. A complete listing of this year's MLK Day weekend celebration can be found at seguintoday.com.

Tickets now available for the annual MLK Dinner Theatre By Cindy Aguirre-Herrera (Seguin) -- You're invited to make plans now to attend the only ticket required event during this year's Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration in Seguin. The Seguin MLK Planning Committee says tickets still remain for Saturday night's annual Dinner Theatre at the Seguin Coliseum. Regina Lee, a member of the planning committee, says after last year's successful event, the group decided to submit another invitation to the same playwright Que Samuels. “We had a proven track record and we have asked Que Samuels back this year and he has a play that is going to be a little shorter than last year. He's going to go straight through so we should be finished by 9 p.m. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. and plates will start being served at 6 o'clock," said Lee. "We actually start at 5 o'clock with a social hour and then we go into our meal and this is the only event that is a paid event and we are still the cheapest game in town at $30 so think about buying tickets from people around town. There are tickets at the radio station. There is no way you can't get a ticket.” Herman Lampkin, also a member of the planning committee, says Samuels doesn't disappoint and hopes that even more people will come out and hear his message.

"And for those who don't know who Que Samuels is, he was the one that was in the play last year who was Deacon Ray and so he is a good friend of mine. He's a crazy character on and off the stage. We enjoy him from the time they get here to the time they pack up and leave so we look forward to it. So, he's coming back Last year, he did an original play. This year, he's doing another original play, a different play. This one is called 'Entertaining Angels.' He's been doing this for quite some time, writing plays. The guy has talent just oozing out of him but to let you know what he does as a career, he's an educator I believe in the Bryan School District -- him and his wife. To me, they are just very positive people that in their community, uplift their community and so I'm just glad to have them come to our community and do that same thing," said Bogany

that the people come out and support us. We are just looking to honor the legacy of MLK and this is just a small part in the way that we try to pull the community together," said Bogany. The event will include a social hour from 5 to 6 p.m. Saturday. It will be followed by dinner from 6 to 7 p.m. and then the theatre production from 7 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $30 each or $15 with a student ID. Tickets can be purchased from any committee member, at Seguin Radio KWED or by calling 210-857-6037.

Again, this is the only event that requires a ticket during this year's now five day MLK Day observance celebration. Committee member Derric Bogany says $30 a ticket is a bargain especially when it comes to drinks, dinner and a show. "Going to some of these event centers, I guess in the Schertz and Cibolo area, things like that, you go there and you drop a pretty penny just for a little bit of entertainment. If you are taking the kids and the family out, this year, this is a great value for your buck and this is going to be the fun for the weekend. This is the one that is going to take care of all the in and outs of funding this great weekend and so we definitely ask

Charter school continuing growth, momentum in Seguin

worlds -- having that private school feel without that tuition cost. Our charter here, like I said we are growing, but we are still smaller. We are very family oriented," said Landry.

By Cindy AguirreHerrera

(Seguin) -- A local charter school says it's gearing up for its next step forward. Southwest Preparatory School located at 2400 E. Walnut Street, a pre-k through eighth grade campus, reports continued growth over these last four years in operation.

Landry says the school's success speaks for itself and rallies around the family unit.

Campus Principal Patricia Landry says the school next year is anticipated to grow even more as it prepares its students for high school. "So, currently this school year, we are serving pre-k through eighth grade. When the charter originally opened, the plan was really to be an elementary school but through the feedback of our parents and our families and our students, they loved what we were doing and wanted us to grow with them and so each year, we've added a grade level which is how we have come to eighth grade this year and then our goal is our eighth graders will become our graduating class. So next year, we will add ninth grade," said Landry. Landry says much of its

operation has not only been about educating children but also the community on the significance that a charter school has in a community. "We are a public school and so what that means is that

we have the same accountability as the local ISDs do. The state and federal accountability is the same. Here we have the federal nutrition lunch program. For Texas, we have the STAAR assessment. That is not different. We follow all

of that. In my experience having worked in an ISD and now with a charter -like I said for me, the biggest difference that I can say is it really depends on the values that your charter is founded on and it's a sense of the best of both

"The momentum is strong. We've seen even over the course of this school year, you know we started at a certain number. We projected that we'd have that and we've exceeded that. Through the word getting around to our families, talking with other people in the community, we have just had other families come in and ask to take a tour. They've been happy with what we've been doing and they involved their students with us. So just as the course of the year has gone on, that is common for charters, our families are our biggest asset and when they are happy with what we are doing, they spread that word and the children come," said Landry. The school will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the school.

James, stifling defense spark Seguin boys in comeback win over Tivy (Seguin) - Christopher James scored 19 of his game-high 27 points in the second half to help Seguin erase an 11-point, third quarter deficit and knock off district rival Kerrville-Tivy 52-47 on Tuesday at Goldie Harris Gym. The Matadors trimmed the margin to six by the end of the third period and used a combination of 11 points from James and a suffocating defensive effort to outscore the Antlers 15-4 in the fourth quarter. As much as James' sive flury sparked game's momentum turn, Seguin head coach Dwayne Gerlich was quick to credit the defensive work of two Matadors against Tivy's All-District returnees and leading scorers Jackson Young and Abraham Viera. "Nobody understand the job we did on Jackson Young with R.J. Acuna, and Gerrit Twitero in the paint," Gerlich said.

offent h e

"He was just all over it. He got deflections, but he was able to actually get his hands on the ball, and we were able to get something easy on the other end." Young scored 17 points in the first three quarters, but Acuna held him scoreless in the fourth. Twitero came up with three steals on passes into the post, held Viera to two points in the final period, and induced a critical offensive foul from the Antlers' big man. The Antlers used an 11-0 run to build a 17-6 lead in the first quarter, but Seguin answered with seven straight points to make it 17-13 at the end of the frame. Tivy went back in front by 11 in the second period, the Matadors rallied back to within three, and the Antlers scored the final four points of the period to lead 3124 at halftime. Seguin took its first lead of the fourth quarter, 47-45, when James scored on a drive, drew the foul, and drained the ensuing free-throw with 3:27 to play. James dropped in a short jumper to put the Mats up 49-45 with a little more than a minute left after the Antlers turned the ball over with a five-second violation. Tivy's Christian Gorham answered with a driving layup to cut it to 49-47 with 42.7 seconds remaining. A pair of clutch free throws by James gave Seguin a 51-47 lead with 39.9 seconds to play. Young missed a contested three on

Tivy's next possession, and Joseph Vela knocked down the first of two foul shots with 23 seconds left to put the Mats up by five. A Viera three rimmed out on the following trip down the court, and Seguin ran out the clock after securing the rebound. "I think one of the biggest adjustment we made was we said we wanted to speed the game up," Gerlich noted. "I thought we did, and we trapped a little bit more, and we got a little bit more speed going up and down the floor. Because their continuity offense is tough when you just let them sit." Twitero's streak of three straight games with at least 20 points ended with an eight-point outing that included two threes in the first half. Acuna and Vela chipped in with seven points each, and Jhalen Mickles burried a three-pointer. As for James taking over the game offensively, Gerlich says the senior guard capitalized on a favorable matchup when he was isolated against Tivy's Gorham. "It was all by design" the coach said. "C.J., unbelievable offensive player. He's really coming around. We're going to keep working with him, and see if we get some more things that we see against these other teams where he can be a very effective offensive player like he was tonight." The win is Seguin's fourth consecutive in District 26-5A and fifth straight overall. With a 4-3 district record and 13-11 overall mark, the Matadors are part of a three-way tie for fourth place in the 26-5A standings with Boerne-Champion and San AntonioVeterans Memorial. Wagner (6-1) and Harlandale (6-1) share the top spot, and Tivy (5-2) sits in third place. Seguin wraps up the first half of the district schedule Friday with a 6:30 p.m. road game at Wagner. The Matadors look to avenge a 71-53 loss to the Thunderbirds in mid-December.

2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates on Health Care

Iowa Child Goes Blind From The Flu

(Des Moines, IA) -- 2020 presidential candidates are discussing health care in America. Speaking at the seventh Democratic debate in Iowa, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders says his Medicare-forAll plan will cost substantially less than the status quo and it will take on the greed in our system today. Former Vice President Joe Biden says he plans to build on the Affordable Care Act by offering a public option. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar [[ KLO-buh-shar ]] says she wants to make it easier for people to get coverage for addiction and mental health.

(Waterloo, IA) -- A four-year-old Iowa girl is now blind from the flu. Jade DeLucia's family says she nearly died when she contracted the flu last month. She was rushed to the hospital with a dangerously high fever and her eyes rolling to the back of her head. NBC's Doctor John Torres says Jade spent over two weeks in the ICU. The last flu vaccine she had was in March and her parents thought that'd be enough, but they're now urging other families to heed CDC warnings to get children vaccinated in the fall.

Dems Pressed On Climate Change During Latest Debate

Elevated Leukemia Incidence In World Trade Center Workers

(Des Moines, IA) -- Democratic presidential contenders are pressing the case for urgent action to curb climate change. In the latest Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said the U.S. must immediately transition away from fossil fuels. Former VP Joe Biden said the U.S. government must take immediate action. Billionaire businessman Tom Steyer [[ STYE-er ]] said he would declare a national state of emergency on climate during his first day in the White House.

(New York, NY) -- A new study reveals that a large amount of Leukemia cases has been found in first responders to the World Trade Center following the 9/11 attacks. In a study published by JNCI Cancer Spectrum, 1,072 cancers of various types were identified in just under 1,000 responders. But this marks the first time that a statistically significant increase in Leukemia was shown in a study. The disease is known to occur after exposure to occupational carcinogens such as benzene with a latency of several years from exposure, which is consistent with the recent findings.
