Society, PHS cosmetology sponsor Jamie Chapman said. Students of the cosmetology program travel Chisum, North Lamar, Prairiland and Paris schools during lunch offering hair extensions and feathers. “The schools have been on board with this and we couldn’t be more grateful,” Chapman said. “The kids love it and some of their moms fight the battle, so it helps.” Campaign Page A3

Carolyn Lockett “And as far as I knew, I was the only one in my family to have breast cancer.” Regular mammograms aren’t recommended until a woman is 40 years old due to the radiation the test exposes the body to, but as Lockett was settling into a new job in her recent move to Paris, she was required to get a physical. The doctor examining Lockett found a lump and suggested she go for a biopsy. “I had breast cancer,” Lockett said.

Planning & Zoning

Lake Crook development returns to agenda Lance Fletcher

The Paris Planning and Zoning Commission keeps the discussion of Lake Crook’s development going on Monday, along with talking specifics on its platting process. The planned development of 3,000 acres surrounding Lake Crook has been pushed since January, when Paris Mayor A.J. Hashmi presented plans for improving the land surrounding the lake. At the time, he was quoted saying

a potential developer approached him with a hunting and fishing resort in mind. The zone under consideration involves boat ramps and docks, among other water-based uses. Planned is a thorough discussion of impact to the environment surrounding the lake. Last month’s planned discussion was tabled due to several commissioners’ absence from the meeting. Commissioners also review plans for a $2 million expansion of the Cefco station on U.S. 82

Campaign: Pink hair from Page A1 run and events for three years. “We want people to be aware of it, make sure women schedule yearly exams and stay healthy,” said Plata. Local businesses were involved this year. Tanglz Salon was on hand for pink hair extensions and Crossfit Paris presented a class at the Civic Center at 9 a.m. Snacks provided by Creative Candy Designs, Cupcakes for a Cause filled stomachs of hungry participants, and Paris

West. According to representative Stan Briggs at the September meeting, the plan includes an expansion of the current property by Fikes Wholesale, owner of the property. Fikes owns several convenience store chains, including Cefco. The development will include the neighboring lot, just west of the current Cefco lot. Talks about the platting process will be open to the public, as are all meetings of the Commission. The meeting is 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall.


Mid-month event keeps cancer awareness going Eva Dickey

Few things represent the great Paris, Texas, like the Eiffel tower or fountain downtown, and this year, Paris will light them both pink to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness and remind women to get mammograms, for the entire month of October. Light it Pink is sponsored by Digital Mammography of Northeast Texas, Paris Imaging Center and Texas Oncology. The three have also teamed together with a silent auction and a shoe designing contest on Oct. 14. Anyone is invited to decorate a shoe with pink flair to show support for breast cancer survivors, cocoordinator Louise Mosely said. The decorated shoe must be delivered to Love Civic Center, where the Light It Pink event will be held, by 6 p.m. The event is slated from 6-8 p.m., and the public is invited to bring lawn chairs and watch a night of entertainment. Face painting will be available for the youngsters as well as entertainment provided by Danielle McKee Dance Company. Food will be served and East Texas Broadcasting will conduct a live remote. The silent auction starts at 6 p.m. and includes a custom-made wreath, jewelry, bath items, glassware, photo shoots and a family 4-pack to Movies 8. Voting for the shoe contest also starts at 6 p.m. for $1 per vote. The

winner will receive a prize gift basket. A portion of all proceeds will benefit The Bridget Network, and all money will stay in Lamar County, Mosely said. The Bridge Network will be at the event to answer all questions and offer advice and will later be taking applications to help women pay for mammograms, which average about $300, Mosely said. “We do all this to remind women to get their mammograms. That is the most important thing. They tell you age limits but as long as you are breathing, you need a mammogram. Early detection is key. If you don’t get that mammogram, you die,” Msely said.

Pink is a fight for hope and the future


Sam Craft / The Paris News

North Lamar volleyball player Lauren Coursey cheers at the all pink pep rally for the volleyball team as part of breast cancer awareness.

Our Voice

Pink is for everyone

THE ISSUE: Breast cancer takes over not only the lives of those afflicted, but their family, their friends, their co-workers. Everyone is impacted by this scourge on society, and everyone should do what they can to help eliminate this dreadful disease.

It’s October. A time when the leaves turn colors and fall from trees and pumpkins adorn door steps. A time when we start dreading the holiday shopping. Brilliant colors appear to remind us of changes to come. Orange, yellow, gold – and pink. Yes, pink. It’s everywhere in October, just like the colors of nature. And pink serves as a reminder, too – of what can come through greater awareness and more research in the fight against breast cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you’ll see pink ribbons, pink clothing, pink balloons, even pink hair. As you may have noticed, The Paris News

is joining the pink crusade with our Pink Issue today. We turn pink in memory of those who have lost the fight to the dreadful disease and in honor of the fighters and survivors. Breast cancer is responsible for the deaths of about 40,000 American women each year – mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends. About one in eight will get the diagnosis at some point during her lifetime. We turn pink for them. Cancer is never easy, and we recognize that and honor every fighter out there. We encourage women to get regular mammograms, and to do self-examinations. Know your body, take preventive measures and talk with your doctor. We also encourage the community to join the fights. No cancer fighter fights the battle alone. Donate, join the fight and help the fighters fight. Until a cure is found, we shall all turn pink.

heavily throughout our area. Thankfully, we’re not alone today. Our effort has been joined with countless caring members of the medical and business community throughout Paris and the Red River Valley. You see their commitment to the cause of a cure with a special ribbon inside their message today. Part of the proceeds from those ribbons will go to help defeat cancer. Our business partners believe it’s a fight worth fighting. They believe in standing up. They believe a community that cares together survives, bonds and grows together. And, you can join us. You can join the thousands in the Valley and the millions across the country who have battled breast cancer. Some, sadly, did not survive. That number, though, continues to fall thanks to every dime and every dollar raised for research and support. Throughout this special month, we are donating proceeds from the individual sale of today’s edition, as well as proceeds from year-long subscriptions bought in October to help the fight against cancer. We know we cannot do enough, but we also know we — like all others — have a responsibility to stand along side those fighting for each of us. No, today will not be enough, sometimes we think nothing can ever be. During those days, though, we are reminded of the power and love that explodes from our friends, our neighbors, our partners and our community. We are reminded of the ongoing determination felt deep in the soul of our community that we will not stop. We will not surrender. We will not give up. Instead, we will give. We will hope. And, we will fight. That is what pink represents. It’s memories. It’s hope. It’s the future. Today, it’s our color. Every day, it’s our mission. — J.D.

oday, we are pink. It’s not new. It’s not unexpected. It’s not state-of-the-art. It is important. It is significant. It is, unfortunately, necessary. And, it should never be overlooked. It can’t be. Certainly, it won’t be. There are too many people suffering, too many people fighting and too many people with wide, generous and caring hearts to let pink slip to the sidelines. Today, during a month when pink stars, we help bring it more into the spotlight in a way we hope shows its meaning, its overwhelming power and its pain. We could have been easy and uncomplicated. So many other newspapers across the country simply slip themselves onto pink paper. But, people rarely confuse the battle against breast cancer with undemanding and troublefree. No. Getting through our edition today will not be easy. Our stories often carry great emotion, but this day always seems more moving. Our words and pictures are sad, confusing, touching, exciting, poignant, uplifting and uncomfortable. Our pink letters and lines can be straining, difficult and draining. It’s done for a purpose. It’s done for an understanding. It’s done to help. As in other years, there will be complaints. No matter how hard we try, many focus on our color, rather than our message. Many believe we should remain effortless and simplistic, side-stepping the emotional, controversial and painful things that come with life. Instead, we believe the complexity of our pinkness shows greater respect for the color, and most importantly, greater respect for those inflicted with a horrible disease and the families and friends who fight with them each day. Today it is an honor that we are pink, and it’s a pleasure to share our pride with each of you. We hope those feelings spread throughout our community and strengthen the foundation of support and generosity, which runs

Students work together to help teacher’s wife Eva Dickey

Prairiland Patriots are banning together and turning pink this October to raise money for the wife of a teacher, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. “They are a part of our Prairiland family, and they are currently still dealing with a lot of medical bills and treatments,” said Prairiland Beta Club sponsor Shawonna Rhoades. “We just want to help them.” On Oct. 22, the group is “pinking out” the stands by wearing as much pink as possible at the volleyball game that night, and then following it by doing the same thing at the

football game on Oct. 25. A color run is Oct. 26, at the high school track. The run starts at 9 a.m., and cost is $25 per runner. The group raised almost $4,000 for Relay for Life and was third place in fundraising and first in spirit. “We have all been affected by cancer in some way,” Rhoades said. “Please, join our fight and help us knock out breast cancer.” Shirts will also be sold for $12. All proceeds benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation and the Bridges family. “The majority of all the money will go to the Bridges family,” Rhoades said.

The Initial Visit

If you’ve never visited a chiropractor, here’s what you can expect at a first visit. The Chiropractor, like any health-care professional, is going to want to know about your overall health situation, and will ask you a battery of questions along those lines. Be sure to list any surgeries or injuries you’ve had over the years. Again, as with any health-care professional, the chiropractor will likely check your blood pressure in line with the overall health care field’s concern about hypertension and may also want a blood sample and a urine specimen. The chiropractor may also take some x-rays and check your posture as well as your balance, muscle tone and range of motion of various joints. It’s also not uncommon for the chiropractor to measure the length of your legs. Certain problems can be caused by legs of unequal length. If you’ve come to the chiropractor for a specific problem, naturally he or she will have you explain how the condition came about, what makes it feel better, and what aggravates it. The chiropractor will then diagnose your condition and decide whether chiropractic treatment will be effective, and if it is warranted, recommend a course of treatment. Beginning a relationship with a chiropractor is a step that will help keep you feeling good and living a healthy lifestyle. Presented as a service to the community by

run and events for three years. “We want people to be aware of it, make sure women schedule yearly exams and stay healthy,” said Plata. Not only community members, but local businesses were involved this year. Tanglz Salon was on hand for pink hair extensions and Crossfit Paris presented a class

at the Civic Center at 9 a.m. Snacks provided by Creative Candy Designs, Cupcakes for a Cause filled stomachs of hungry participants, and Paris Glam was on hand to deck out shirts in rhinestones. “We had 50 runners [signed up] on Thursday, and it kept growing,” said Plata. The event raised $2,700 last year, and organizers hoped to surpass it.

Auto Industry

Sept. U.S. sales falter, automakers see rebound Automakers expect little impact from the federal government shutdown, and they predict a fourth-quarter rebound after a rare sales decline in September. Auto sales dropped 4 percent from a year ago to just over 1.1 million, mainly due to a calendar quirk that pulled Labor Day weekend transactions into August’s numbers. General Motors, Honda and Volkswagen reported double-digit declines last month. Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai posted smaller decreases. Only Ford and Chrysler reported gains among the bigger automakers. GM’s 11 percent drop was its first since July 2012. It allowed Ford to get within 2,049 vehicles of unseating GM as the top U.S. automaker for the first time since May 2011.



Most industry officials viewed September as an anomaly. They also downplayed the impact of the government shutdown, assuming it’s a short one. Kurt McNeil, GM’s U.S. sales chief, said the fundamentals are still in place for GM and the industry to rebound. Jobless claims are falling, home prices continue to recover, gas prices are down, household wealth is rising and the Federal Reserve has postponed the end of a bondbuying program that kept interest rates low, he said. “As long as the underlying economic factors are supporting the business, which we believe they will through the end of this year and into 2014, we’ll get through this turbulence,” said Ken Czubay, Ford’s U.S. sales manager. — The Associated Press

begin getting mammographs, Hogge said if a younger woman feels something or notices any changes in her breasts she should go see a doctor right away. Younger women who have a history of breast cancer in the family or those who know they have a special gene (BRCA) mutation, believed to cause breast cancer, may need to get mammograms earlier, he said. “Otherwise, the likelihood is you won’t get

breast cancer before 40,” Hogge said, adding younger women do not need to be exposed to unnecessary radiation. A mammogram at 40 establishes a base line and a mammogram every year as long as a woman is healthy enough to get one is important. “As a woman ages, the breast tissue becomes less dense as a woman gets older and if there are changes we can detect those,” Hogge said.

Two women sit in a small store near the plaza in downtown Paris, their hands holding three knitting needles and their fingers working the needles back and forth, guiding yarn in place as a breast prosthesis slowly takes shape. A nipple first, out of light pink yarn and then the breast itself, made from yarn to match a particular skin shade. Each prosthesis is custom made and is free. Carol Medrzycki, a Globe resident, and Marianna Lane, of Honey Grove, say providing women with a need for comfortable breast replacement is their way of giving to others. “My family has a strong history of breast cancer and I am just waiting for the axe to drop,” Medrzycki said. “It gives me great pleasure to do this for others.” Since the opening of Ewe-nique

Creations of Paris, 120 Bonham St., a year ago, the owners have made a couple dozen prostheses. Some women need only one while others need two, Medrzycki said. Lane said mastectomy bras come with an inside pocket, in which the prosthesis fits snuggly inside. “We put a little weight in the bottom to keep it in place,” Medrizycki said. Not only do the owners provide something special for breast cancer survivors but their small shop is a place women come for relaxation and socialization while weaving, crocheting, spinning, tatting, rug hooking and more. The shop charges for the first four hours of classes to teach customers the basics, like how to read a pattern and skills to work independently so they can be successful in a particular craft, Lane said. “After that, they came come here as often as they want at no charge,” Medrizycki said. “We are really more of a social network than a business.”

Government doors closed, but workers may get paid The Associated Press

Their government has failed to keep the doors open and has told federal workers to stay off the job as the political parties fight over spending and health care in austere times. Now Congress and President Barack Obama are sending this message to the 800,000 sidelined

government employees: We don’t know when the impasses will end but you will get reimbursed for lost pay once the government reopens. With the partial shutdown entering its fifth day, the GOP-run House passed a bill Saturday that would make sure the furloughed workers get paid for not working. The White House backs the bill and the Senate was

expected to OK it, too, but the timing was unclear. The 407-0 vote in the House was uniquely bipartisan, even as lawmakers continued their partisan rhetoric. “This is not their fault and they should not suffer as a result,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said of federal workers. “This bill is the least we should do. Our hard-working public servants should not

become collateral damage in the political games and ideological wars that Republicans are waging.” Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, said federal workers shouldn’t have to worry about paying their bills while Congress and the White House fight over funding the government. “They have child care expenses, house payments to make, kids that

are in college, and while the president refuses to negotiate, while he’s playing politics, they shouldn’t worry about whether or not they can make ends meet,” Turner said. But even as Congress and the White House rallied around the bill, one outside group said it “demonstrates the stupidity of the shutdown.” Making the shutdown less painful for 800,000

federal employees will encourage Congress and the White House to extend it even longer, driving up the cost, said Steve Ellis of Taxpayers for Common Sense. Ellis said “essential” federal workers who stayed on the job “will feel like suckers because they’ve been working while the others essentially are getting paid vacations.”

FBI destroys material behind searched Houston home Federal agents have detonated a “potentially volatile substance” behind a Houston home where the FBI on Friday conducted a search. FBI spokeswoman Shauna Dunlap said no one has been arrested but the controlled detonation Saturday afternoon was intended for the safety of the public and authorities at the scene. She wouldn’t elaborate on the nature of the material blown up. The home is one of two in Houston and a condominium in Bryan, about 100 miles to the northwest, searched under court-ordered sealed warrants.

ARLINGTON Student dies from balcony fall A 17-year-old nursing student at the University of Texas at Arlington has died of injuries from a three-story fall from an apartment balcony. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office says Ebony Warner of Austin died Friday afternoon at a Fort worth hospital of injuries from the Wednesday night fall. Arlington police say Warner was attending a party at the off-campus apartment when she fell. Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard said there was no evidence of foul play. A family statement to the Fort Worth StarTelegram says Warner had graduated a year early from Round Rock High School and was in her first semester at UTA.

FORT WORTH 102-year-old store to close A hardware store that had served the BryanCollege Station area for more than a century is closing its doors for the last time. Parker-Astin Hardware in downtown Bryan started as the sort of place where a credit account could be opened with a handshake. Its present owner, Zane Anderson, tells The Eagle of BryanCollege Station that the decision to close by the end of the year was difficult but financially necessary. Anderson says the store has been losing money for the past three years after several years of breaking even. G.S. Parker and E.H. Astin first opened the doors in 1911. Anderson says the pair sold the store to the Varisco family sometime in the 1950s or ‘60s, and he bought it in 2005.

FORT WORTH Fort Hood trial cost about $5M Records show the U.S. government spent nearly $5 million to court-martial and convict an Army psychiatrist in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage. Army records obtained by KXAS-TV of Fort

Worth and Dallas showed the biggest pre-trial expense in Maj. Nidal Hasan’s trial was more than $1 million for transportation for witnesses, jurors and attorneys. About $900,000 was spent on their accommodations. Hasan was convicted in August of killing 13 people during the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting. More than 30 people were wounded. Records also show in the months before his trial, Army helicopters ferried Hasan from the Bell County Jail to Fort Hood so he could work on his defense in his private office at a cost of more than $194,000.

AUSTIN Counties up feral hog bounties Counties are posting and increasing bounties on feral hogs as the nonnative, invasive species press their search for food closer to urban areas. The tusked creatures grub through fields, gardens, even lawns, carrying disease and parasites with them. The Austin AmericanStatesman reports that Hays and Caldwell counties in Central Texas are offering a $5 bounty for each hog bagged by hunters, up $2 from last year. Bastrop County is offering a $5 bounty for the first time. Texas has the nation’s largest feral hog population with nearly 2.6 million pigs this past June. Experts blame the animals for about $500 million in statewide damage, including $52 million a year to agriculture. Professional hog hunter R.A. “Bubba” Ortiz said drought pushed the hogs closer to urban areas for food.

HOUSTON Texas No. 1 in gun applications Texas leads the nation in the number of people seeking federal permission to buy guns. Federal statistics reviewed by the Houston Chronicle show 1.2 million people in Texas so far this year have filled out applications for background checks. At that rate, last year’s record 1.4 million requests will be surpassed by the end of 2013. Would-be purchasers from a federally licensed dealer must apply with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Criminal convictions, dishonorable military discharges or renouncing their citizenship can get a buyer rejected. One gun store owner, Jim Pruett, told the newspaper Friday that President Barack Obama motivates gun buyers “any time he talks about gun control.” The numbers don’t include transactions between private citizens. Those don’t require background checks.

Your Valley HOUSTON Officer’s son shoots burglary

The 18-year-old son of a Houston police officer shot and killed an intruder who, with another man, forced their way into their suburban home. Houston police Officer Ken Patmon said his son was alone at home Friday afternoon at the family

house near Mission Bend, about 20 miles west of Houston. He said his son was on the telephone with him when he heard someone pounding on the door. Seconds later, two men were in the house. One was headed upstairs when Patmon’s son shot him dead. Patmon says the

other man fled in a dark blue Nissan Sentra. The teen was uninjured. A Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office statement said investigators have no detailed description of the fugitive intruder or the license tag number of the getaway car. — The Associated Press

Take All Root Rot misinformation can be heartbreaking


Dear Neil: I was told in midsummer that my lawn had Take All Patch and that it should not be treated until it was cooler. It has continued to spread, and now it looks like I may have lost big parts of my grass. Do you have any suggestions? A. There is so very much misinformation about Take All Root Rot that it’s heartbreaking when a story like yours is told. TARR is a cool-season disease, predominantly of the spring. St. Augustine (and to a lesser degree, bermuda) is lethargic in its growth. It is yellowed, with dead runners intermingled with the new green growth of springtime. Its “patches” are generally poorly defined, more like washes of damage across the lawn. The strands of the fungus can be seen on the runners with only a hand lens or magnifying glass. That is all contrasted with damage done in the summer by chinch bugs.

Neal sperry Special to The News

These insects were very bad this year, and the affected grass started by looking dry in patches, always in the hottest, sunniest parts of the yard. Left untreated for even a week, the b-b-sized insects quickly killed the afflicted patches completely. I don’t know whether you’d still be able to see the chinch bugs if you were to inspect the lawn more closely, but I’d still bet that they were the culprits. It’s sad that the person helping you didn’t at least point out that possibility. Imidacloprid systemic insecticide controls chinch bugs quickly and efficiently. It’s imperative that you treat at first evidence and after confirming that you do see them. Take All Root Rot, by comparison, is treated

The building opens at 11 a.m., lunch starts at 1 p.m. Bring a covered dish dinner. Beverages, plates, forks and napkins will be provided.

with a 1-inch layer of sphagnum peat applied over the lawn and watered onto the soil surface. The fungus does not thrive in the acidic layer created by the peat. I do not think you need to apply peat now. I doubt if the insecticide would offer much help this late, either. A. Dear Neil: Is a rainwater harvest system practical for a small home garden and landscape? A. Maybe not in many cases. Unless it’s a very small garden, you probably will soon run out of the water you have collected. If you were to collect, say several hundreds of gallons of water, they might be gone very rapidly in hot, windy summer weather in Texas. Remember that it’s not uncommon for a shade tree to use and lose 50 or 100 gallons of water per day in mid-summer. Of course, every drop of water we conserve is better for Texas in the long run, but you need to weigh the costs of the system versus the benefits

you will realize. I won’t try to discourage you. You just need to be sure that you’ve properly quantified the project. Q. Dear Neil: What types of shade trees should I consider for the west side of my house? Our house is elevated about 10 feet above the level of the lawn due to a change in terrain. What type of tree would be durable and still provide good shade? A. The best shade trees for most of Texas include Shumard red oak, chinquapin oak, bur oak, cedar elm, pecan and Chinese pistachio. All of those would meet your objectives handsomely. Had you not mentioned the grade change, and if you told me that the tree would be some distance away from the house, I would also have included live oak, but they are too spreading for your specif-

ic needs. Honestly, those would be probably the only trees I would consider for my own landscape given the parameters you listed. Q. Dear Neil: The people who owned our house before us planted a row of pampasgrass clumps as a screen. It has, over the past several years, become rather sparse in areas. We would like to take it out. Is there any easy way? A. Really, no. You could kill the grass by spraying it with a glyphosate-only herbicide, but you would still have all the leaf blades. You’re going to have to remove all of them as well as the roots at some point. If you have very much pampasgrass, you might want to hire a landscape contractor with a small front-end loader to dig it all out. If you’re going to do

the work yourself, you’ll want to start by cutting the blades off as short as you can comfortably cut them. Use a gasolinepowered trimmer or machete to cut them. Wear goggles, gloves and long sleeves and long pants. The leaves are like knives. Once you have them cut back to the clumps you’ll be ready to dig out the root systems. Soak the ground thoroughly, then start digging. Their roots are large and heavy, so each clump will take you some time to extricate. Good luck with the task. — Have a question you’d like Neil to consider? Mail it to him in care of this newspaper or e-mail him at Neil regrets that he cannot reply to questions individually.

Muhammad Ali presents awards The Associated Press

Muhammad Ali is recognizing former President Jimmy Carter, Grammy winners and young adults for their roles in fighting for humanitarian causes. The former boxing champion returned to his hometown of Louisville to join in presenting the inaugural Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards on Thursday night. The 89-year-old Carter received a lifetime achievement award. His son Chip accepted the award on his father’s behalf.

Singers Christina Aguilera and Michael Bolton were other award winners. Ali’s wife, Lonnie, said the awards are a culmination of her husband’s efforts to promote social causes. Six young adults and teenagers from around the world were being recognized for exemplifying core principles espoused by Ali. Winners include a Ugandan who formed an anti-poverty organization and an American teenager who started a foundation to provide shoes to homeless children.

merican author and businessman Stephen Covey once wrote, “You can retire from a job, but don’t ever retire from making extremely meaningful contributions in life.” In a day of electronic phone menus and long customer service lines, meaningful contributions are made every day by volunteers who work to emphasize their care and concern. These ‘meaningful contributions’ change everyone’s life. It certainly makes a difference to the person that is being helped. But, as a reminder, the volunteer is changed too — research has shown over and over that volunteering improves health, both physical and mental. Meaningful contributions are made in many ways. The opportunities are as diverse as the volunteers. With the recent beginning of school, volunteers of all ages have made a commitment to work with Reading to the Future, as this pro-

DAR Monthly Meeting

The Joseph Ligon Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, met for its first meeting of the new year on Sept. 21, at Faith Presbyterian Church. Vice Regent Connie Dodd presided. With Imy Walters leading the prayer, brunch was served. The ritual and pledges were led by Walters, Maronda Evans, Emily Kirkman, Patsy

Davis, and Dianne Erwin. Mike Long, leader of Lamar County Prayers for Students, shared with the group the need for prayers for the students of this county. He related how he and others formulated the plan for making sure all seniors and juniors in this area have someone praying for each of them and solicited the help of DAR. Lisa Johnson, history instructor at Paris Junior College, presented the program. She explained the motives for the soldiers from both the North

and the South risking their lives in the Civil War. Johnson said these men knew that they likely would die in this bloodiest of wars. Glenda Wise presented the year’s budget, and it was accepted. J o Penrose reported on the Service for Veterans Committee’s work and introduced the Membership Committee’s new member prospect, Annette Caviness. Dodd read memorials for Frankie Hawkins and Dan’L Lusby. The hostesses for the

brunch were Walters, Barrillon Daughtry, Virginia Eatherly, Nell Lollar, and Carroll Starnes. There were 21 members and four guests present. The next meeting will be Oct. 19, and the program will be presented by Earl Erickson, whose topic will be “The History and Future of the Trail de Paris.”

Breast self-exams are vital to discovering abnormalities, including lumps or tenderness, in the breasts. Self-examination increases the chances of early detection of breast cancer. John Hopkins Medical Center states that 40 percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump. Doctors urge women to conduct monthly self-exams to familiarize themselves with the look and feel of their breasts, which enables them to more readily recognize any abnormalities that may indicate illness. There are a number of ways to conduct a breast self-exam, and women are urged to find the method they feel is most comfortable for them. The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., offers these tips for conducting a breast examination at home.

Examine in the shower

A breast examination can take place in the shower while you are washing. The shower is a convenient place to conduct an exam since you already have removed your clothes. NBCF says you should use the pads of your fingers and move around your entire breast in a circular pattern, moving from the outside to the center, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Check both breasts each month for any lumps, thickening or hardened knots. If you find a lump, visit your physician for an evaluation.

Examination in bed

The breast tissue will naturally distribute over your chest wall and ribs when you are lying down. NBCF advises you to place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit. Squeeze the nipple and check for discharge or lumps. Then repeat the process on the left breast.

Visual examination

Standing in front of the mirror, you can look at your breasts with your hands at your side and over your head. Look for any differences between breasts. Many women find that their breasts are not exactly the same shape or size, but unusual dimpling or taut or thick skin may be indicative of a problem.

Prairiland falls late to MV MOUNT VERNON 15, PRAIRILAND 12


Roberts displays courage in fight


obin Roberts is no longer associated with sports on a regular basis, but her fight against breast cancer still resonates with many sports fans and non-sports fans alike. Roberts, who was an anchor on ESPN’s SportsCenter from 19902005 before becoming an anchor on ABC’s Good Morning America, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. She entered remission and returned to work before announcing last year that she had recently been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, which is a blood disease. She received a bone marrow transplant from her sister and returned to good health once again. She is back on the air and can once again be seen every morning on Good Morning America. Roberts was honored for her survival at this year’s ESPY awards ceremony, an annual ESPN event dedicated to honoring the best players and moments in sports. She was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. ROBERTS Page C3

Pats defense forces four turnovers in 10 consecutive district loss MADDIE KUHN

It took 26 minutes for Mount Vernon to find another crack in the Prairiland defense. But, it was enough for the Tigers to get a 15-12 lead, the eventual winning score. Down 12-7, with 4:11 left to play, the Tigers’ Mason Cook ran left and

found a wall of bodies, so he darted right. He found a big hole for a seven-yard touchdown to go up 13-12. The crowd at Don Meredith Stadium roared even louder when, for the two-point conversion, running back Kris Ables took a direct snap and made the short pass to Austin Decker, who pulled it down like he

was making a rebound. The loss, Prairiland’s 10th straight against a district opponent, doesn’t do the Patriots’ defense justice. Mount Vernon (4-2, 2-0) started on the Prairiland side of the field once, in the aforementioned touchdown drive, and its average drive length was 26 PATRIOTS Page C8

Defensive struggles continue for Chisum STAFF REPORTS

At halftime, just two points separated the Alba-Golden Panthers and Chisum Mustangs, who trailed 16-14. Then, the Panthers broke the game open with NICK TISDELL 20 unanswered points, including a 56-yard run early in the fourth quarter, before eventually winning 51-29 on Friday at AlbaGolden Stadium. After improving to 2-1 for its first winning record since 2010,

Chisum has dropped three straight to Lone Oak, Cooper and A-G. In those losses, the Mustangs have been outscored 52 to 14. Alba-Golden’s Gus Peacock and Edward Salinas each had over 150 yards and three touchdowns as the Panthers racked up 470 yards on the ground. Chisum quarterback Nick Tisdell sliced up the Panther defense, completing 20 passes in 29 attempts for 334 yards and three touchdowns, including a 66-yarder to Levi Shetler as the game ended. He also ran for a score. Shetler topped 101 yards receiving with just four catches and Jared

Mathews caught six passes for 95 yards. The Mustangs had trouble getting the ground game going, accumulating 32 total yards on 14 carries. Tyler Foiles led them with 26 yards, but had 52 yards and a touchdown through the air. Turnovers also plagued Chisum, which lost both of its fumbles, while forcing no turnovers of its own. Chisum (2-4, 0-2) will continue its tough stretch with next week’s home contest against Edgewood before playing three teams with a combined 0-16 record to finish the season. AlbaGolden (4-2, 2-0) will travel to Como-Pickton.

Hugo breaks more records Buffaloes continue to set marks in 45-point win STAFF REPORTS

Hugo turned in another record-setting performance during Friday’s 59-14 win over Pocola. The Buffaloes set a new single-game scoring mark, surpassing the former record by three. Also, wide ARKYL receiver BROWN Arkyl Brown snagged a 50-yard touchdown pass from Nigel Smith for his seventh-straight scoring catch, another program best. The victory gives Hugo (5-0, 1-0) its first unbeaten start since 1965, but the W wasn’t always certain. Pocola scored the first two touchdowns of the game in the first quar-

Cooper dominates C-P

Bulldogs score 75 points; hold Eagles to 76 total yards STAFF REPORTS

Seven different Cooper players reached the end zone on Friday night, as the Bulldogs rolled to a 75-0 homecoming victory over the ComoPickton Eagles at Bulldog Stadium. It was the third consecutive shutout victory for Cooper (6-0, 2-0), which has outscored its opponents 313-26 this season. The Bulldogs led 47-0 at halftime and fielded a team of reserves and junior varsity players for much of the second half. Senior Jeremy Mims led the Bulldogs’ offensive attack in Friday’s victory by scoring in three different ways. He rushed for a game-high 113 yards and two touchdowns and also returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns. His punt return covered 50 yards in the first quarter. His kickoff return was the opening kickoff of the second half, which he took 85 yards to the end zone. Senior running back Darmarcus Robinson also continued his typical offensive onslaught by rushing for 109 yards and two touchdowns on only five carries.

Sam Craft / The Paris News

Cooper offensive lineman Ty Oliver (52) and quarterback Kasey Leatherwood (12) form a convoy for running back Jeremy Mims (4).

Ira Franklin and Walker Richey scored rushing touchdowns in the second half. Kasey Leatherwood connected with Hadley Worden for a 22-yard touchdown pass in the first half. Cooper’s defensive unit scored twice, with Brandan Chandler returning a fumble 40 yards for a score shortly before halftime and Emilio Zapata returning a fumble 89 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs’ defense limited Como-Pickton (0-5, 0-1) to only 76 total

yards. Worden led a balanced defensive effort with eight tackles. Colby Earley and Clay Ingram recorded seven tackles apiece. Earley, Ingram, Trevor Mobley, Tristan Jones and Zach Jester

sacked the quarterback one time apiece. Cooper will enjoy a bye week this week before returning to action on Oct. 18 with a road game against AlbaGolden.

ter to take a 14-0 lead. Then, the Buffaloes’ defense shut them out for the rest of the night and held them to 77 total yards and minus-8 rushing. Meanwhile, the Hugo offense gained 432 total yards, putting up 400-plus for the third consecutive game. Trey Johnson scored four touchdowns, two rushing, one receiving and one on a 58-yard punt return. He had 93 yards receiving on four catches and 87 yards rushing on just four carries. Smith finished 14-for23 for 270 yards and no interceptions. He distributed three passing scores for 14 yards, 41 yards and 50 yards and also punched in a four-yard score. Hugo will face what many see as its first true test at Hartshorne next week. Last year, the Miners won 61-7.

Roberts: Courage in fight against cancer from Page C2 In both of her diagnoses, she went on the air and was very open with her viewers. She stared directly at the camera and shared her thoughts and feelings. And she didn’t do it to put herself on a pedestal. She did it to raise awareness so other people could see the warning signs, know their body and turn to a doctor when something isn’t right. In that aspect, Roberts shares the same idea as many others in this state and country. October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness month as many organizations attempt to draw attention to the disease that claims far too many

lives and has affected all of us in some way. The Paris News has joined the cause by donating 10 percent of today’s single paper sales to the cause. Meanwhile, local football (and volleyball) teams have done so by wearing as much pink as they’re possibly allowed to wear. This can go as far as pink shoelaces, socks, gloves, towels and sweatbands for football players. Hopefully one day, all the money which has been raised can lead to finding a cure for the disease. In the meantime, I hope all of the attention given to breast cancer this month can help save lives so more sick people can survive it in a similar manner as Roberts.

Edgewood Bulldogs slam Rivercrest STAFF REPORTS

Rivercrest is still looking for its first win after falling to Edgewood 62-6 on Friday. The Rebels’ touchdown was the first of the game when a Josh Werline oneyard run gave his team a 6-0 lead before the Bulldogs scored at least

twice in each quarter. Rivercrest (0-6, 0-2) put up 151 yards, including 130 rushing. JOSH WERLINE Werline was the team’s leading gainer with 70 yards rushing, as well as seven receiving.

Croix Parrott followed with 51 yards on 14 carries. Quarterback Landon Earley picked up 17 yards on seven carries and completed six-of-12 passes for 21 yards and one interception. Earley’s main target was Dakota Ross, who snagged two passes for 11 yards. Felix Hernandez had a catch for a couple

of yards and Aaron Hayes registered a reception. Meanwhile, Edgewood (6-0, 2-0) exploded for 540 yards of offense, which included a 200-plus yard rusher, a 100-plus yard receiver and a nearly 200-yard passer. Carlos Bolton had 218 of the ‘Dogs 344 yards on the ground and four touchdowns, Jakeb Hunter

snagged four passes for 105 yards and a score and Jackson Tyner completed 9-of-17 passes for 196 yards. Justin Stephenson had the last TD of the game on a 53-yard punt return. The Rebels will look to break into the win column next week when they face winless Clarksville next week at home.

Detroit edges Celeste


A few clutch plays helped the Detroit Eagles come away with a 27-20 overtime win over Celeste on Friday night in Detroit. With the score tied 14-14 with BLAKE about 2:30 WESTBROOK left in the fourth quarter, Detroit senior Blake Westbrook

blocked Celeste’s attempted punt from its own 15-yard line, scooped it up and took it to the 4. A couple of plays later, a one-yard burst by quarterback Trevor Reger gave his team a 20-14 lead. Celeste drove down the field in the final two minutes and reached the end zone with 12 seconds left on an 11-yard run by Marco Santos. However, the extra point kick sailed wide right, which caused the game to an overtime period.

Reger scored from 15 yards out on the second play of overtime on what proved to be the gamewinning touchdown run. Reger scored all four of the Eagles’ touchdowns, including one on an interception return. He failed to complete a pass, but ran for a team-high 130 yards. Running back Toby Moss added 61 rushing yards on 18 carries. Trevor McCoin led the Eagles’ defense with 13 tackles. Daniel Waldrip and Keith Henderson

recorded 10 tackles apiece. “We needed that win,” Detroit head coach Lance Connot said. “That was a big morale lift for us. That’s the kind of fight I’ve been used to seeing from the Detroit Eagles. I hadn’t seen it much this year, but it showed up in that game.” Detroit (3-3) will begin District 10-A Division II competition at 7:30 p.m. on Friday with a home game against Union Hill.

Maud tops Honey Grove MAUD 58, HONEY GROVE 18


With just over eight minutes to go in the first quarter, Honey Grove’s Bobby Newman returned an interception for a touchdown to give the Warriors a 6-0 lead. For the rest of the first half, Maud went on a 45-6 run, including rushing touchdowns for 18 and 41 yards.

Maud continued that streak in the second half, outscoring Honey Grove 13-0 in the third and cruised to a 58-18 win. The Warriors’ second half score was a 23-yard touchdown by Hoss McElroy with just over 10 minutes remaining in the game. After going 19-1 the past two years, Honey Grove is 1-4 at the end of non-district play. The

Warriors take on Wolfe City next week at home

to begin its District 8-A, Division I schedule.

Alabama, Tech still perfect The Associated Press

No. 3 Clemson and No. 8 Florida State took turns routing divisional foes, and sending messages that they are the superpowers of the Atlantic Coast Conference. After Clemson won at Syracuse 49-14 and Florida State stomped No. 25 Maryland at home 63-0, the Tigers and Seminoles are two weeks away from a huge showdown in Death Valley on Oct. 19. Florida State (5-0, 2-0) and star redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston have next week off. Clemson (5-0, 3-0)

and Heisman Trophy contender Tajh Boyd play Boston College at home. No. 1 ALABAMA 45, GEORGIA STATE 3 AJ McCarron completed 15 of 16 passes for 166 yards and four touchdowns in the first half and Alabama rolled. The Crimson Tide (5-0) jumped ahead 38-0 by halftime against the Panthers (0-5), a first-year Football Bowl Subdivision team. The Tide hasn’t allowed a touchdown in the past three games, giving up three field goals. No. 20 TEXAS TECH 54, KANSAS 16 Freshman sensation

Baker Mayfield passed for 368 yards but was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury in the third quarter of Texas Tech’s victory. Mayfield, a true freshman walk-on who has started every game, was hurt at the end of the third quarter when tackled while passing. There was no penalty. He hobbled very slowly off the field with someone helping him under each arm. He was 33 of 51 with one interception. After falling behind in the first quarter 10-0, the Red Raiders reeled off 54 straight points, going to 5-0 (2-0 Big 12) under

first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury for the first time since 2008. It’s the 22nd straight Big 12 loss by Kansas (2-2, 0-1). No. 21 OKLAHOMA STATE 33, KANSAS STATE 29 J.W. Walsh found Charlie Moore for a 6-yard touchdown pass with 4:16 left in the fourth quarter to help Oklahoma State rally. Walsh finished 24-of38 passing for 245 yards for the Cowboys (4-1, 1-1 Big 12), who narrowly avoided their second straight loss after a defeat at West Virginia last week.

Ortiz lifts Boston with two homers The Associated Press

John Lackey has watched David Ortiz wreak destruction on playoff opponents before. He finally got a chance to see it from the same dugout. “I like it a lot better on this side, that’s for sure,” Lackey said after Ortiz hit two homers to lead the Red Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday and give Boston a 2-0 lead in the AL division series. It was the first twohomer postseason game for Ortiz, who is the only player remaining from the 2004 Red Sox team that won the franchise’s first World Series title in 86 years. He was also a star

of the ‘07 team that won it all; both times, they opened the playoffs by eliminating Lackey’s Los Angeles Angels. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and scored three runs for the AL East champions. Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs, and Lackey earned the win in his first postseason start since joining the Red Sox as a free agent in 2010. Ortiz hit his first homer in the first inning, then his second in the eighth to chase Rays starter David Price. Tampa Bay will need a victory in Game 3 on Monday in St. Petersburg, Fla., to avoid a sweep in the best-of-five series. The game starts at 5:07 p.m.

3-0) stands alone atop the district standings, now having already beaten Paris (16-9, 2-1) and Pleasant Grove, which were projected in the preseason to be the Pantherettes’ toughest opponents in their quest for a district championship. “It was packed, and it was loud. But we ran our game plan and played

smart,” North Lamar head coach Kathy Barker said. “There were certain things that we worked on, and we did them. We just played smart. The girls did exactly what we told them to do.” Bailey Jones led the Pantherettes with a teamhigh eight kills, while Ashleigh McFatridge added six kills, three block assists and four solo

Patriots: Fourth-quarter score puts Mount Vernon over Prairiland in district game from Page C2

yards. That’s certainly not enough to get anywhere close to scoring. “Our defense played real well,” Prairiland head coach Alex Richters said. “A good team offensively like that, they’re going to get a good play here and there and the big thing is they had to earn every point they got. You look on the board, we held them to two touchdowns. Our defense did a good job. “ David Murdock and Cutter Raley each recovered a fumble while Josh Harrison and Dakota Taylor had interceptions. The Pats D combined for six tackles for loss and two tackles of no gain. Murdock’s fumble recovery gave Prairiland (3-2, 0-1) field position at the Tigers’ 26-yard-line with two minutes left in the first half. On fourthand-nine, Zac Pointer dropped a rainbow pass right into the hands of sophomore wideout Josh Harrison, who caught it over his shoulder in the back of the end zone. That gave the Patriots a 12-7 lead after Pointer’s two-point conversion pass was batted down at the line of scrimmage. “Great catch, great route and great throw all the way around,” Richters said. “That’s the kind of stuff we talked about that we need to have in ball

games like this. Big ballplayers have to make big plays. For a sophomore, that was a dang good job.” In the second half, Mount Vernon had seven drives and four first downs. But, whenever the Pats offense got the ball, it would give it right back. Prairiland’s first two drives of the second half netted a combined four yards. The Patriots also had trouble capitalizing on opportunities. They turned the ball over on downs at the Mount Vernon 13, 28 and 24. After Taylor returned an interception 20 yards to the Tigers’ 15-yard-line, a Colton Lewis seven-yard run and a MV offsides penalty set the Pats up with first-and-goal at the Mount Vernon 4. Next snap, they fumbled, and lost, the ball. The Patriots will have some trouble recovering from this loss physically as they lost starters Britt Fendley and Cutter Raley. Fendley came out of the game in the first quarter after taking a defender’s helmet to his right knee while carrying the ball. He was on crutches with a brace after the game. “Biggest thing is we have to get our run game going,” Richters said. “When Fendley went down, that made us start to kind of make some adjustments. Once we

Rivalry: North Lamar tops Paris to claim first in district from Page C7 line as well, combining to go 31-for-31. Lauren Coursey led the team defensively with six digs, while Rachel Freeman added four. Lexie Stephens was North Lamar’s top server in the match by going 17-for-17 and also had five defensive digs.

Paige Dixon led the Lady Cats with 10 kills, while Julianna Clipson added eight. Kendall Vogt provided 20 assists. Maddie Helms had seven digs. North Lamar will host Liberty-Eylau on Tuesday, while Paris will make the trip to Texarkana to face Pleasant Grove.

made those adjustments and brought another kid in, we were able to continue to run and that opened up the pass.” Positive aspects for Prairiland were its balance of running and passing plays and its lack of penalties. The Pats had three mental errors for 15 yards. Next for Prairiland is a home contest against Queen City where the Pats hope to get their first district win since 2011.

“I told them to keep their heads up,” Richters said. “There’s no doubt those young men played their hearts out until the very end and never quit. That they can be proud of and hold their heads up high. They represented us well, did it with style, class, guts and determination. I’m proud of my boys. We’re putting this behind us. We have to go and beat Queen City now and make the playoffs.”


Cowboys look to stop Broncos The Associated Press

It’s Peyton Manning time at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys. The hot-starting Denver quarterback makes his first visit to Jerry Jones’ showplace a few months after the Dallas owner dropped Manning’s name to try to explain how Tony Romo was going to play a bigger role in the Cowboys’ offense. After Romo signed his $108 million extension in the offseason, Jones said his quarterback would be spending “Peyton Manning-type time” at team headquarters.

Jones’ sound bite was a reference to the fourtime MVP’s penchant for preparation and ended up serving as fuel for critics who took it to mean Romo wasn’t doing it already. And now Romo is in charge of a hitand-miss offense with a 2-2 record going into Sunday’s game against the 4-0 Broncos and Manning with his 16 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Broncos have won 15 straight games by at least seven points, the second-longest streak behind the 1941-42 Chicago Bears. Dallas doesn’t have that many in the last four seasons

combined and hasn’t had a winning streak longer than four games since 2007. But the Cowboys have a little something going for them. They’re 2-0 at home for the first time since leaving Texas Stadium after the 2008 season, and they haven’t trailed this year under the retractable roof and huge video board. Romo hasn’t exactly been awful. He has eight touchdowns with just one interception and is

fourth in quarterback ratings (Manning leads, of course). But his offense had 21 points at halftime against San Diego last week — and finished with 21. The Broncos had 21 at the half last week, too — and finished with 52. “There’s pressure on your whole football team to play a really clean game and not give them any easy opportunities,” Garrett said. “You’ve got to be effective and efficient.”

Dear Abby


SKELETONS IN FAMILY’S CLOSET CAUSE TURMOIL AMONG SIBLINGS DEAR ABBY: I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in a family that looked perfect from the outside, but was far from it. My parents tried to shield us from most of the problems, but because I’m the oldest, I remember a lot. My parents both had affairs. My siblings recently learned about the affair Dad had because Mom told them, but they have no idea about the one Mom had. Because of this, DEAR ABBY my brother hardly speaks to Dad. Mom was diagnosed with a mental disorder when I was a child. I remember her violent outbursts. I know Dad stayed only for us. We’re all adults now, and my parents are divorced. My mother plays the victim and my brother blames Dad for everything. It breaks my heart. I have tried to convince Mom to stop trying to hurt Dad through my brother, but she won’t. I want my family to be able to attend milestones without turmoil. I don’t know how to make this better. Please help. -- DOESN’T WANT THE TURMOIL DEAR DOESN’T: Making this better may take the help of a licensed professional and some family counseling -- provided everyone is willing to cooperate. But don’t count on your mother. She doesn’t appear to be interested in healing any breaches. I do think, however, that because you are all adults, your siblings should know the entire story about your parents’ infidelities -- particularly your brother, so his relationship with Dad can be repaired. DEAR ABBY: Our son recently told us he will be proposing to his girlfriend before Christmas. We’re happy for him, but concerned that he’ll want to get married next year, which will be our 25th anniversary. We can’t afford to celebrate our 25th the way we want to and help with their expensive wedding. We have been planning this for years, and we don’t want to sacrifice our celebration for their plans. We think they should either postpone the wed-

ding or pay for it themselves. We have always taken care of our son, but we feel 2014 is “our” time. Are we wrong, and how can we tell him without feeling guilty? -- PARENTS OF THE FUTURE GROOM DEAR PARENTS: While you have always taken care of your son, he is an adult now and you should be able to communicate with him on an adult level. Tell him how pleased you are that he and his girlfriend are planning to be married, but that you will be unable to contribute financially because you’re celebrating your 25th in 2014 and can’t afford to do both. Not all couples marry soon after becoming engaged. Some wait a year or longer, and more and more couples pay for their own weddings these days, so don’t feel guilty. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a man for the last three years who is very much my senior. His children are also much older than I am, and there is a mutual awkwardness when we interact. My boyfriend does the best he can to ease the situation, but it is painfully obvious that they are uncomfortable with our relationship and my presence. What can I do to show them I want to be viewed as family, too? -- UNWELCOME IN ONTARIO, CANADA DEAR UNWELCOME: There is nothing you can do. But there is something your boyfriend can do. He can make it clear to his adult children that unless they make you feel more welcome than they have done, they will be seeing less of BOTH of you.
