Summer Sports Camps at La Feria ISD By Emilio Flores La Feria News

Kid-Friendly Tech Gear For a Season of Outdoor Fun

Page 2

La Feria High School has been offering short sports camps to help kick off this year’s 2022 summer. The sports camps are for kids in 5th through 8th grade and are currently wrapping up to finish this week at the High School. La Feria News spoke with the College & Career Readiness Director, Cassandra Zuvieta. Zuvieta shared a little about the camps that the school is putting together and the importance of

them. This is what she said. Zuvieta says that the School board really wanted to look at sports and enrichment camps for the summer. The kids need activities and fun things to do over the summer and Zuvieta says "With covid, we’ve just had so much remediation." She says that is something that has really come from the community. She thanks all the coaches and teachers that are really helping to bring back a feeling of

normalcy. Zuvieta thanks the Athletic department for stepping up and says that this is something "the Athletic program was really willing to do for us." The sports camps include Track, Tennis, and Golf for grades 5th through 8th. These are only the main coaches, for golf, David Briones & Charlie Prado for tennis, Michelle Panches and for track, Campos and Zuvieta. Unfortunately, because of the very busy schedules of coaches and deadline, La Feria News was unable

to reach out to all the coaches but was able to talk with Coach David Briones, head coach for Golf. He says "It's been going good, we've had a good turnout for most of the week," Briones says that he's really teaching the kids the basic form and the different clubs that are used. “Just the basics,” he says. He reiterates that the camp is two weeks, going from Monday through Thursday finishing up on the 16th. Briones says he’s very passionate about what he does, playing since he

was in High School. Coach Briones has been coaching at the High School for about 12 years now. Cassandra Zuvieta thanks all the coaches for their dedication to these kids, even during the summer, continuing to help provide activities. Zuvieta thanks the coaches to take time away from their summer and time with family to continue to share their passion for different sports. More stories on the camps that are going on this summer at La Feria ISD are to follow.

Santa Rosa Resident Sabine Garcia Receives Bachelor's Degree at Worcester Polytechnic Institute's 153rd Commencement WORCESTER, MA (05/17/2022)-- On Saturday, May 14, Sabine Garcia of Santa Rosa, Texas, who majored in Biology and Biotechnology Environmental and Sustainability Studies, was bestowed a bachelor's degree at WPI's 153rd Commencement. Nearly 1,200 undergraduate degrees were awarded during the university's 153rd commencement ceremony. This undergraduate ceremony marked the first time the entire class and their family and friends were able to gather together for an in-person ceremony since 2019. In her final commencement exercises before stepping down to become the Director of

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, President Laurie Leshin presided over both celebrations, along with Board of Trustees Chairman William Fitzgerald '83. In her remarks, President Leshin celebrated the Class of 2022 and all they have accomplished during their time at WPI, including how they weathered the challenges of the pandemic. "While it would be unfair to describe the second half of your time at WPI as anything short of extraordinarily challenging, as always, I am so heartened by how this community came together to meet every moment," she said. The keynote address was given by Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH,

Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, who was awarded an honorary degree. She praised the members of the Class of 2022 for navigating the uncertainties of the pandemic and implored them to continue embracing the many shades of gray they first encountered due to COVID-19, and are likely to continue to face in their professional lives. Honorary degrees were also bestowed upon State Senator Harriette Chandler, the first woman from Worcester to serve in the Massachusetts State Senate, a position she has held since 2001. Lesley

Small Zorabedian '72 was honored with a Presidential Medal for her trailblazing efforts to help shape the university. She was one of the first women to be enrolled at WPI as an undergraduate in 1968 and in 1972, she became the first woman to receive an undergraduate degree from WPI. The undergraduate class speaker, Nicole Conill, received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, with a focus on cyber security. Conill is pursuing a master's in Computer Science at WPI. Her speech was titled "Reflect on the Past. Celebrate the Present. Focus on the Future." She concluded by telling her classmates to "follow your heart to wherever,

whomever, or whatever it is that calls you. Use what you've learned from WPI, whether it's academic or personal, to guide you on that journey."

(StatePoint) Warm weather has arrived and if you’re seeking ways to promote family fun and activity, check out this round-up of kid-friendly tech gear, all of which can inspire creativity during outdoor adventures:

VTech is a great outdoor companion for those ages 4 and older. Use the built-in LED light and flash to brighten up dimly lit scenes or use as a flashlight. The watch also features energetic movement games, giving kids an opportunity to challenge themselves and stay active while having fun. There is a social component too -- children can pair with friends who also have a DX3 to securely share preset messages or play games together. Plus, it’s a great tool for everyday time-telling -- choose from more than 50 digital and analog animated clockfaces or create custom faces from users’ own photos. When it’s time to focus, switch to “School” mode to limit the DX3 to a watch only.

About Worcester Polytechnic Institute WPI, a global leader in project-based learning, is a distinctive, top-tier technological university founded in 1865 on the principle that students learn most effectively by applying the theory learned in the classroom to the practice of solving real-world problems. Recognized by the National Academy of Engineering with the 2016 Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education, WPI's pioneering project-

based curriculum engages undergraduates in solving important scientific, technological, and societal problems throughout their education and at more than 50 project centers around the world. WPI offers more than 70 bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degree programs across 17 academic departments in science, engineering, technology, business, the social sciences, and the humanities and arts. Its faculty and students pursue groundbreaking research to meet ongoing challenges in health and biotechnology; robotics and the internet of things; advanced materials and manufacturing; cyber, data, and security systems; learning science; and more. www.wpi.edu

UTRGV Researchers Awarded Grant to Study Motor Recovery in Stroke Survivors

Dr. Michael R. Dobbs, chair of the Department of Neurology, UTRGV School of Medicine, and Dr. Kelsey Baker, assistant professor, Department of Neuroscience, UTRGV School of Medicine, were a awarded a grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to study the motor recovery, along with the brain and spine degeneration, of 30 stroke survivors over the next three years. (UTRGV Photos)

By Maria Gonzalez RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TEXAS – June 2, 2022 – Dr. Michael R. Dobbs, professor and chair of the Department of Neurology in the UTRGV School of Medicine, has been awarded a $443,963 grant to research the motor recovery, along with the brain and spine degeneration, of 30 stroke survivors over the next

three years. The grant was awarded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), which is part of the federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dobbs said the R15 NIH grant will allow him to study whether degeneration after a stroke affects some areas of the brain more progressively than others, and whether that

degeneration extends to the level of the spinal cord. “We want to determine how this degeneration impacts the ability to move the first three months after a stroke,” Dobbs said. The project, titled, “Role of Alternative Sensorimotor Pathway Degeneration in Motor Function of in Acute Stroke,” will be led by principal investigator Dobbs, and co-PI Dr.

Kelsey Baker, assistant professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the UTRGV School of Medicine. Baker said it is estimated that, by 2030, an additional 3.4 million adults will experience a stroke. “White Hispanic males are projected to experience the highest rates,” she said, “In addition, preliminary estimates from our work suggest that stroke is a

(StatePoint) While the summer season often signifies the start of hurricane season and wildfires, the rise in natural disasters has made preparedness a year-long process. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administation (NOAA) reported 2021 was the third-most active hurricane season on record, with 21 named storms. According to CoreLogic, about one in every 10 homes in the United States was impacted to some degree by natural

disasters in 2021. Companies like T-Mobile have emergency response teams working tirelessly to ensure they are ready to keep communities, first responders and customers connected when it’s needed most. T-Mobile works with weather forecasters, including StormGeo, to accurately track weather events and potential severity. T-Mobile’s network switches, data centers, points of presence and other critical sites are

equipped with thousands of new backup generators, thanks to a multi-year network hardening investment that also added advanced relief and recovery tools in hurricane-prone areas. And its Network Operations Centers provide 24/7 monitoring so technicians and engineers can watch network traffic demands and weather impacts. When it comes to weather-related disasters, even with all T-Mobile’s preparations and the

network’s increased capacity, power outages and other service interruptions can still occur. The good news is that you can also take steps to ensure you stay connected during weather events: • If you have a network connection, keep calls to a minimum and as short as possible. • Send a text instead of making a call. Text messages get through more easily during times of congestion. • If you have home

particular concern in South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley.” Dr. Thomas Spencer, associate vice president for UTRGV’s Division of Research, said the division fully supports the work Dobbs and his research team are doing. “Their search for advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of patients needing neurological care is important – and in many cases critical – not just to patients in the Valley, but around the world,” he said. This federal funding will provide the means to collect high-resolution and advanced neuroimaging protocols (MRI) through one of the first studies to capture neuronal pathway changes in the spinal cord in acute stroke. The study will be conducted at the newly established UTRGV Institute of Neuroscience in Harlingen. NEUROLOGY AND NEUROSCIENCE TRAINING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION

NIH grant reviewers called the grant application “a highly translational application from an experienced clinicianscientist that could produce some intriguing new clinical science for stroke survivors, while creating an outstanding training opportunity for students at UTRGV…” Dobbs said this Research Enhancement Award Program (REAP) project will provide a valuable opportunity for medical students to be exposed to hypothesis-driven research within the Valley. It also will enhance the UTRGVNIH research portfolio and provide medical students and undergraduate students opportunities to be at the forefront of research data collection and presentation. “Additionally, the work will lead to publications in scientific journals,” Dobbs said, “and could lead to additional funded projects through other NIH mechanisms.” The grant lasts through March 31, 2025.

How to Stay Connected During Weather-Related Disasters broadband and power but no mobile service, turn on Wi-Fi calling, which allows T-Mobile, Sprint, and Metro by T-Mobile customers with capable devices to text and make and receive voice calls via any capable Wi-Fi connection. If you need to call 911 using Wi-Fi, be sure to give your address to the operator. There are additional weather monitoring resources available to alert you of upcoming severe weather. You can receive the latest storm forecasts

from NOAA’s National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. You can also download The Weather ChannelTV app on your smart TV or streaming device. To learn more about how T-Mobile prepares for and responds to disaster events, visit T-Mobile’s disaster relief website at t-mobile.com. Taking a few minutes to brush up on best practices during inclement weather will help keep you connected, come what may.

First Baptist Church, La Feria Recently, a friend wrote that the economy had become so bad that he just received a pre-declined credit card in the mail. That may be funny, but a bad economy is no joke. Experts in the field are predicting a serious downturn in the economy. Joining the voices of doom is the wealthiest man in the world, Elon Musk, no stranger to South Texas. In the electric car manufacturer’s own words, he is feeling “super bad” about the economy. As an expression of his “super bad” feelings, Musk plans on cutting the Tesla workforce by 10%. I wonder if Elon Musk’s “super bad” feelings are for himself or for others? He and the other 10 wealthiest people in the world recently saw their wealth double during the pandemic. Those billionaires went from 700 billion to 1.5 trillion dollars in accumulated wealth. However, for lower- and middle-class Americans the economy was “super bad” during the pandemic. Even with assistance many Americans struggled to cover their bills, find child care, and pay the rent. How much more “super bad” will things be as the economy slumps? In the Bible Dives is the name given to a wealthy man. He had everything including a poor man named Lazarus lying at his gate. There is little evidence that Dives ever noticed Lazarus and his poverty. That is until death overtook them both. To say, then, that Dives felt bad is an understatement. -Mark S. Ross DMin.

UTRGV Athletics Hires Santa Rosa 7on7 Team Qualifies for State Marques Dantzler Santa Rosa in local valley news has

RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced on Tuesday the hiring of Marques Dantzler, who has nearly two decades of experience working in college athletics, including this past year as the associate athletic director for NCAA compliance at Manhattan College, as senior associate athletic director for compliance and administration. In his new role, Dantzler is responsible for the direction, coordination and maintenance of a comprehensive compliance program and managing in accordance with university, conference, and NCAA rules, regulations, and procedures. He serves as the liaison for athletics to the NCAA Eligibility Center as well as university legal and UT System legal counsel on administrative matters for the department. He is also the liaison for undergraduate admissions and financial services, working collaboratively with units across campus to develop policies and procedures that ensure institutional, conference, and NCAA compliance. During his time at Manhattan, Dantzler oversaw the compliance and student-athlete development efforts of the department's 19 Division I sport programs and its student-athletes. "I am excited to welcome Marques to our department,” UTRGV Deputy Director of

Athletics/Senior Woman Administrator Molly Castner said. “He brings a wealth of experience in college athletics and is going to be a great asset to our studentathletes and coaches. As administrators, we are here to help our student-athletes and coaches succeed, and Marques will be a key element in maintaining and elevating our success." Coming to UTRGV is a return to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) for Dantzler, who previously chaired the WAC Administrators Group and served as a member of the WAC Board of Athletic Advisors while serving as the senior compliance administrator at Chicago State from July 2019 through Nov. 2020. This is also a return to South Texas for Dantzler, who previously worked at Texas A&M-Kingsville as assistant athletic director for compliance (June 2011 through May 2013) and assistant athletic director for academics and compliance (Sept. 2014 through May 2016), a tenure interrupted only by a year at Incarnate Word, which is joining the WAC on July 1, as assistant athletic director for compliance. “We are excited to have Marques join the UTRGV family and we welcome him back to south Texas,” UTRGV Vice President and Director of Athletics Chasse Conque said. “His wealth of experiences, coupled with his passion to help student-athletes and coaches, makes him a great

addition to our department. We are in the midst of transformational times at UTRGV, and Marques will play a very important role in helping our department reach our full potential." A 2017 graduate of the NCAA Pathway Program, Dantzler started his career in college athletics as a facilities assistant at Buffalo State in 2002-03. He then took on the dual role of assistant men’s basketball coach and sports information intern at Hilbert College in 200304 before transitioning into compliance at Troy in 2004-05. Dantzler spent the next six years working in compliance at Power 5 institutions, first at Michigan as assistant compliance coordinator (2005-07) and then at Oklahoma as director of compliance (2007-11). “I am very excited about returning to South Texas and joining the UTRGV team,” Dantzler said. “I want to thank Chasse Conque, Molly Castner and everyone who participated in the search process. The future is bright for UTRGV, and I look forward to contributing to its success.” Dantzler majored in finance and earned his Bachelor of Science in Business at Auburn in 2000. He initially went to work as a bank examiner for the State of Alabama Banking Department before moving to Buffalo, N.Y., to earn his Master of Science in Sport Administration at Canisius and work at Buffalo State.

HHSC Preserving History of Austin State Hospital

Archaeologists Excavated More Than 6,500 Artifacts on Hospital Campus

Archaeologist Workspace: Kathryn Siefker, Curator of the Bullock Texas State History Museum, and Nadya H. Prociuk, Ph.D., Principal Investigator on the ASH Construction Project, selecting artifacts to be displayed at the Bullock Museum.

AUSTIN – As part of the revitalization of the Austin State Hospital, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission is preserving the history of the state’s oldest psychiatric hospital, including more than 6,500 artifacts that archaeologists have found at the campus. From June through October, a small collection will be displayed at the Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin. The hospital opened in 1861. It is now undergoing a transformation that includes the construction of a replacement hospital that will open in November 2023. During the construction of the new hospital, archaeologists have been excavating around the campus to recover and conserve artifacts. “As we continue to discover these precious artifacts, we’re getting some unique insight into

how psychiatric care has evolved over the past century in Texas,” said Scott Schalchlin, HHS deputy executive commissioner of the Health and Specialty Care System. “This knowledge not only gives us a glimpse into the past, it also propels the future of mental health care.” Some of the artifacts showcase the selfsufficiency of the hospital that once had its own power plant, water system, carpentry shop, mattress factory, sewing room for

clothing and bedding, ice factory, cemetery, and farm that included crops and livestock. Archaeologists have found farming tools, industrial sewing machines, and thousands of porcelain buttons that were popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Other artifacts include items that give some perspective about life inside the hospital, including game pieces like marbles, board game markers and checkers pieces. Archaeologists made some other discoveries including several military buttons from WWI and WWII and some Native American stone tools. The excavations began in October 2019 and continue with the ongoing construction at the campus. HHSC is preserving the artifacts, and there is a chance for the public to view a small collection of them. From June through October, some of the artifacts will be displayed at the Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin. The display highlights the evolution of the state hospital system, including an “Austin State Hospital” sign from 1925, which marked the year the hospital’s name was changed from “Texas State Lunatic Asylum.” Pictures of some of the artifacts, the Bullock Museum display, and the archaeology efforts can be seen below.

Farm Tool: The remnants of this farm tool speak to the decades of farming and gardening that took place on campus by both staff and patients.

The preservation of the hospital’s history also includes the digitization of documents including medical records, personnel documents, and construction documents. Some of the records are more than 100 years old. For more information about the document preservation project check out this link https://www.hhs.texas.gov/ news/2022/02/project-willhelp-preserve-aging-austinstate-hospital-records Construction at Austin State Hospital HHSC partnered with Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin to design and construct a 240-bed replacement hospital at ASH. It will have private rooms for each patient and ten 24-bed units that each have therapy rooms, classrooms, exercise rooms, an activity/multipurpose room, and other therapy spaces. Once construction is completed in November 2023, the building will replace the current hospital and allow staff to provide psychiatric care under one roof, instead of multiple buildings.

Porcelain Buttons: Archaeologists found countless buttons and sewing notions where the tailor shop once stood at Austin State Hospital.
