County tables oil drilling, FEMA ‘disturbing’ David Ball

For The Record

Texas first to get oil spill funds Staff Report

For The Record

Texas is the first state to confirm a deal to spend settlement money from the Gulf oil spill for long-term coastal conservation, the Associated Press reports. Working with a private nonprofit to cut through red tape and buy 80 acres of prime habitat for endangered whooping cranes. A three-way deal calls for MOEX Offshore 2007 LLC, a partner in the ill-fated offshore well, to give $2 million to the Texas Nature Conservancy, which will use it to buy a tract of coastal land where whooping cranes spend the winter. The nonprofit will then give the property to the Texas Parks and Wildlife

A company’s request to proceed with its geophysical operations was tabled at the Orange County Commissioners’ Court at their meeting Monday afternoon. John Hoke with Cimarex Company asked permission to vibe on Four Oaks Ranch Road in western Orange County for oil and gas exploration. The operation would start in August if approved. Precinct 4 Commissioner Jody Crump — where Four Oaks Ranch Road lies within — asked what method of vibing they would use. Hoke said

they will be using vibracides and explosives on private property and not on county right-of-ways. Judge Carl CRUMP Thibodeaux will have County Attorney Douglas Manning review the matter and document it before proceeding. “They will be bringing heavy equipment down the road,” Thibodeaux said. Crump added he would like the public notified before vibing started. Jeff Kelley, emergency management coordinator for the

county, recently attended an emergency management national conference in Orlando, Fla. and reported back to the court. He said FEMA will be reintegrating its policies such as eliminating debris monitoring funds— funds used by Orange County in the aftermath of

Hurricanes Rita and Ike. Kelley called the action “really disturbing.” “It could potentially change how we do things and how we plan things,” he said. FEMA officials told Kelley it would cost the agency more for debris monitoring than to pay for the cost of fraud.

In other emergency management business, the contractor will soon be pouring the concrete roof at the shelter of last resort on FM 1442. Work has begun on the structure’s interior walls. Thibodeaux said Kelley COUNTY BUSINESS PAGE 3A

n a time when Twitter, Facebook and Google weren’t even a forethought, one of the most astonishing tragedies unfolded without the world even knowing. On April 10, 1912, the RMS Titanic set out on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City with 2,224 passengers on board. Her passengers included some of the wealthiest people in the world to emigrants seeking a new life in North America. The ship was designed to be the best in comfort and luxury, with a gymnasium, swimming pool, several libraries and high class restaurants on board. She had advanced safety features such as watertight compartments and remotely activated watertight doors in case of an emergency. Through a series of ill-advised decisions, there weren’t enough lifeboats on board, but no one could see the need for them. The Titanic was thought to be the unsinkable ship.

Four days into the ship’s voyage, about 375 miles south of Newfoundland, the ship hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. The collision caused the hull plates to buckle inward in several compartments on the starboard side and open five of the 16 watertight compartments to the sea. Even though other ships had warned the Titanic of drifting ice in the area, Captain Edward Smith could not “imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that.” The ship gradually filled with water over the next two and a half hours. Many of the lifeboats were launched partly full with passengers and crew members. Women and children were the first to board the life boats. Many men (over 90 percent from the second class) and families who chose not to be separated remained aboard the ship. Just before 2:20 a.m., the Titanic broke apart and sank, bow first, into the deep abyss with over 1,000 still aboard. Those in the water died within minutes due to hypothermia. TITANIC PAGE 3A

Titanic 100th Anniversary The 710 survivors were taken aboard the RMS Carpathia a few hours later. Initial reports of what happened to the Titanic and her passengers were that the ship was being towed to port by the SS Virginian. It wasn’t until the Carpathia reached New York, three days after the sinking, that the world learned of Titanic’s fate. Research from Texas State University has shown a new theory in what caused the ship to sink: a ‘celestial fluke’ lead to a plethora of icebergs. According to this study, factors caused higher sea-levels, causing grounded icebergs to break free and flow in greater numbers than usual for this time of year. It was thought that the ship sank in one piece. Many schemes were put together to raise the wreckage, but the

depth of the wreckage posed the greatest problem. The ships hull lies over 12,000 feet below the surface of the water, where water pressure is over 6,500 pounds per square inch. Several expeditions were mounted to find the Titanic, but she was not found until Sept. 1, 1985. The team discovered that the ship had split apart before hitting the sea bed at considerable speed, the bow and stern lie about a third of a mile apart in a canyon on the continental shelf off the coast of Newfoundland. The force of the hit caused the bow to crumple and the stern to collapse entirely. Debris was found in a field around the two pieces measuring five miles by three miles. Thousands of items from the ship and it’s passengers have been recovered from

the sea bed, including furniture, dinnerware and personal items. Many artifacts can be seen in touring exhibits around the world and in permanent exhibition at the Luxor Las Vegas hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Nev. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s sinking, the 1997 feature film, “Titanic,” was shown in 3D and in IMAX theaters. The cruise ship, Balmoral, was chartered to follow the original route of the Titanic, intending to stop over the point on the sea bed where she rests on April 15. Fifty of Balmoral’s passengers are descendants of some who died on the Titanic. It has estimated that the hull and structure of the Titanic will collapse entirely within the next 50 years be-

cause of metal-eating life forms and from too many visits to the site. Dr. Bob Ballard has been working to preserve what’s left of the Titanic and to build a virtual museum using high-def cameras that go safely into the wreckage. So, why does Titanic still fascinate the world a century later? “Had it gone down in minutes like the Lusitania, it would be just another lost ship,” Ballard said in an interview with NatGeo. “But the fact that it took so long to sink allowed time for many stories to unfold. We have heroes and villains, [friction] between the upper and lower class, couples who chose to die together rather than be separated. And of course, through it all, the band played on. For sheer human drama, you cannot top this story.”

Slaughter becomes BCCC president so it doesn’t cost them money. I want to let the community to know about the businesses and what they have to offer,” she said. Slaughter said there are many new people on the board of directors who are businessminded who have great ideas. “I’m excited,” she said. “I have a great group of people

to work with. They are leaders and they serve as examples. We can’t be successful without them. “So many businesses are now joining the chamber, that we’re behind eight or nine ribbon cutting ceremonies. We don’t have to call them. They’re calling us.” Another change Slaughter

would like to make is to hire a part-time person to work at the chamber office while still utilizing volunteers at the office. A statement from the board of directors responded: “We appreciate all the work that Bobby has done on behalf of the chamber and regret his decision to no longer serve

signed Tuesday before it was made public. The arrangement allowed the state agency to bypass cumbersome red tape that often slows down government business and to quickly acquire land that likely would have been sold and subdivided for residential use. The $2 million is part of a $90 million settlement MOEX made with the federal government and the Gulf states after the 2010 rig explosion that killed 11 people and caused the worst offshore spill in U.S. history. MOEX and several other companies partnered with BP to drill the well and are now being held accountable for the disaster. All the settlements include setting aside money — $20 million in MOEX’s case — for coastal conservation projects. While all five Gulf states have wish lists of coastal conservation and restoration projects, this is the first project to be announced since the settlement was reached in February. Until now, most money

spent has been either emergency cash funneled toward cleanup or urgent projects mostly paid from a pot of $20 billion BP set aside to pay individual claims in the immediate aftermath of the spill. More recent settlements, including with MOEX, include civil penalties the companies owe under the Clean Water Act and other federal rules. Texas got about $6.5 million from MOEX and decided that half would go to the office responsible for preserving and overseeing its land and water resources and half would be spent by the parks service. Texas was able to cut the first deal because it had already pinpointed a few projects that were almost ready to go and working with the Nature Conservancy. Ted Hollingsworth, the parks service’s director of land conservation, said it has little of its own money for land acquisition and was looking even before the settlement for money to buy the property north of

The Adult Probation Building at the intersection of Division Avenue and Border Street is scheduled to be completed at the end of May, Kelley added. Gene Smith, director of the Veterans’ Service Office, said office registration was up nine percent while appointments were down seven percent. Veterans walking in for aid were up seven percent. Thibodeaux told Smith he was doing a good job because Thibodeaux’s office wasn’t receiving as many complaints. Dr. Roy Stanford with the department of AgriLife/Extension reported on educational activities such as living with diabetes, general healthy living and gardening. The department has also been working on administrative and professional development activities such as fish stocking, diabetes prevention and 4-H Clubs. In fact, the program in Orange County was recognized by the Center for Disease Control, the only program in Texas to be recognized. Lastly, a proclamation was read designating April as “Child Abuse Prevention Month.” Jane Stevenson, executive director for Advocates for Children, Inc. said 231 children died from abuse last year in Texas. Unfortunately, one of those children was from Orange. To raise awareness for the issue, an Eagle Scout planted white crosses on the lawn of the Orange County Courthouse. The county is also flying a child abuse prevention flag over the courthouse and 231 balloons were released Monday afternoon.

One of the things that made the project urgent, he said, was the fear that it would be sold to a private developer. “From a simple real estate perspective, subdivision residential development would have been a very clear use for that property,” Hollingsworth said. “There was a high probability that the area would have been further compromised and divided if it had remained in the private arena.” The 80-acre property provides land and water habitat for the whooping cranes, is ad-

Thanks to PESTCO there wasn’t a mosquito in sight. Not one bite. For just pennies a day they will run all the “Skeeters” away and those pests will be gone for several weeks. Ask Karen Jo.

If we don’t get any in the next couple of weeks, Glen Earl will be talking about one of his three favorite topics.*****Remember a couple of years ago I told you, in this column, that the day would come when the Tea Party would be the Republican albatross. They have fallen out of favor with the American people. A recent FOX News poll showed just 30 percent favor the Party, 51 percent think of them unfavorably. Just 15 percent strongly support them, 26 percent strongly oppose. It’s no longer viewed as a populist, grass-roots organization but a dangerous group with extremist views that don’t reflect the mainstream values of America’s middle class. Personally, I believe John Boehner could have been a good speaker but the Tea Party congress has held him hostage. Tuesday I watched Paul Ryan on Morning Joe and his Tea Party budget is scary. Mitt Romney has begun to shift to center with unity pleas. He’s started his etch-a-sketch to appeal to the middle. How is he going to shake the Ryan Paul budget? He had to sign on to get their nomination support. He knows he can’t stay to the right and have any hope of getting elected.***** I’ve go to move on. Please come along, I promise it won’t do you no harm. LOCAL GOP CANDIDATES HURT BY SANTORUM PULL OUT Rick Santorum’s supporters were pushing for a Texas “Winner Take All” primary. It would have been a potential boost for their candidate. They believed it would have been a Lone Star miracle to save Rick’s campaign. Unfortunately, Santorum, because of the health of his child Bella, finances and other reasons, chose to suspend his campaign. When you think about it, Santorum ran an amazing race. He started from scratch, at two percent, no money, couldn’t afford to get on the ballot in some states, still he gave the richest man to ever run for president a run for his money. No doubt about it, Romney is as near a moderate as Obama. If Rick would have had the dough to make it to the long haul, conservatives probably would have made him the nominee. He is looking toward 2016 where it will be an open seat. TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME 10 Years Ago-2002 Paul Cormier Oil Well Services celebrates 55 years in business in the Orangefield area.

There are thousands of variations such as shrimp or seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage, duck gumbo, and etc. No two gumbos are alike. As a youngster one of my favorite was round steak and okra gumbo.

Lighter Side: Did a mummy’s curse sink the Titanic? Kent Conwell

Lighter Side of Life For The Record

A couple weeks back, we journeyed to Houston with our daughter, Amy, and her two youngsters to the Museum of Natural Science to visit the Titanic exhibit that began March 16. Her son, Keegan, is a Titanic fan, absorbed in every detail of the disaster. In fact, when he comes over, he goes straight to the laptop and boots up. He has his own websites on the favorite list, among them shipwrecks, in which the Titanic is one of about half-a-dozen sites. I won’t say he’ll spend hours watching them for he is a typical seven-year-old with ants in his pants. He will, however, devote a sizeable portion of his visit to the various explanations and theories of the catastrophe as well as model replications of the sinking. He even had me drill holes in one of his old plastic boats so he could “study it when it sinks.” His exact words, honest. So naturally, when his Mom learned the exhibit was opening, she knew he had to go. The trip over was uneventful. As we left Beaumont, I realized from the new construction that Gayle and I hadn’t been over there in several years. Traffic hadn’t changed though. Cars everywhere, but Amy got us there with no problems. Well, almost no problems. After parking, we went to the wrong museum, but then fate took pity on us. On the sidewalk, we ran into a gracious lady named Donna Meadows. When I asked if she knew where the museum was located, she told us to follow her. She worked there. Keegan was pushing his little sister, Kenli, in the stroller, so he pulled up right along beside Donna. The little guy has never met a stranger,

and he jabbered with her about the Titanic for the next three blocks. We arrived minutes before the exhibit opened. In the hundred years since the disaster, a haunting mysticism has enveloped the sinking of the “unsinkable” vessel, and the exhibit captured that mystical feeling. To gaze upon the artifacts, China Star place settings, glassware, clothing, luggage, maritime implements, all salvaged from the original vessel, seemed to transport us back into time. There was even a reconstructed stateroom complete with luxurious carpet, large bed, chests, table and chairs. Naturally, everything was hands off, except for one exhibit, a twelve inch square piece of steel plate from the Titanic in a plastic box. A hole had been drilled in the plastic sheet above which a note read, “Touch.” Keegan was thrilled–well, I was too. We all were. We poked our fingers through the hole and actually touched a fragment of the Titanic that had been under the cold waters of the North Atlantic for almost a hundred years. There were several exhibition rooms, two of which were joined with a replica of the ship’s hallway, complete with carpeting, white paneling and doors with shiny brass hardware. Before we entered the exhibit, I took over stroller duty, and I have to admit little Kenli was as good as you could expect, however when we entered the gift shop at the end of the exhibit, I took special care to steer her away from the shelves. If the little girl had gotten her hands on things, it would have been the Titanic all over. From there we visited the dinosaurs, the African veldt, bugs, spiders, and then the butterfly center.

Keegan came running up all excited. He wanted to show me something in the African exhibit. I figured a lion or hyena, but I had to chuckle when he pointed out two crawfish chimneys beside a waterhole from which a leopard drank. Yep, crawfish chimneys just like the ones in our front yard from which he had dropped lines in an effort to catch his own crawfish. Then we headed for the butterflies. The butterfly center is an all glass hothouse, shaped like an inverted cone and about three stories high. The tropical rain forest environment, replete with appropriate plants as well as waterfalls and ponds, is home to countless butterflies of all types. By now, the museum was packed. I stood in line for twenty minutes to get us some lunch from the McDonald’s in the museum. We finished the day off in the planetarium with a show right up Keegan’s alley. In addition to being a Titanic nut, he’s also a star watcher, and this time of year, Venus and Jupiter are putting on a good show. Often you can find him around sunset peering up into the western sky. There were other exhibits we couldn’t make, but I plan on going back.

Oh, yes. I forgot. The title of this article. Did a mummy’s curse sink the Titanic? This is a long time myth supposedly originating from a “ghost story” that journalist W.T. Stead told a group of friends about such a mummy. Since Stead went down with the ship, chances are this story was told so often it became one of those legends that became fact. It was a day well spent even though we drove in a few circles trying to find the right road out of Houston. As an afterthought, that night I woke up and found myself pondering the number of simple, human mistakes that brought about the demise of the great vessel. Individually, they were harmless, but together, they spelled disaster. To be honest, I could see the sinking of the great vessel as an analogy to the direction our country is heading. I could even title it “Did the President Sink America?” I had a hard time going back to sleep. Kent_Conwell

Nice weather improves fishing tourneys COLBURN-FISHING CAPT. DICKIE COLBURN FOR THE RECORD


ith the river still high and off-colored, I was not surprised that the winners of the second Sabine River Tour event of the year weighed in only one legal bass again last week. As tough as that sounds, the number of teams fishing increased by thirty-three percent, there were three times as many bass weighed in and the top three teams all cashed a check with a single fish. The team of Ken Ellis and Willie Burton won $542 with the biggest bass and top weight of 1.88 pounds followed by BJ Jones and John Michulka with 1.60 pounds good for $260 and the team of Brent Kemp and Josh Ridgeway with 1.42 pounds which earned them $150. Jonathan Simon said that Simon Outfitters will host the tournament every Tuesday evening through August. The entry fee is only $40 per team. If you want to increase the odds of at least paying for your gas an additional $5 will get you in their redfish pot and $2 will get you in the trash fish pot. The tournament is held out of the public launch on Simmons Drive. The lake level on Toledo Bend dropped a little last week and the spawn is just about done, but the fishermen that have targeted the deeper breaks and open lake humps continued to do well on fish up to six pounds over the Easter weekend. There was actually a 10.31-pound bass caught and released Saturday night, but double digit bass are scarce right now. There are always a few bass residing in shallow water, but the best numbers of fish in the COLBURN: FLOUNDER PAGE 2B


Two words that best describe Bridge City baseball at this juncture of the season would be “healthy” and “hot”. The Cardinals have spent basically the entire season thus far without playing a game at full strength, until Monday when the entire team finally suited up together. Various injuries have kept the Cardinals from benefitting from the services of seniors Zach Smith and Matt Menard, two very key figures in the BC lineup. With both players healthy now it appears that the Cardinals are ready to switch gears and continue their winning ways. Now don’t think for a minute that BC missed a step during Menard and Smith’s absence as the Cardinals stacked up 14 wins against two losses in that time frame. Head Coach Chad Landry has to feel like a kid a Christmas now that his lineup is at full strength with the outright lead in the district up for grabs this week. BC will play the Silsbee Tigers twice this week and those games will go a long way towards determining this years district champ. The first game is scheduled for Wednesday and is make up game from March 30 when a lighting malfunction caused the game to be cancelled. The Cardinals will then travel to Silsbee on Friday for a regularly scheduled match up. Both teams enter Wednesdays game unbeaten in district. BC has been absolutely dominant thus far posting three shutouts in their five wins and only allowing two runs and 11 hits in that span. The pitching depth that was already ridiculously deep was bolstered as Smith returned from injury and threw six outstanding innings against Hardin Jefferson in a 12-0 victory. Cardinal aces Jake Lemoine and Hayden Guidry will no doubt take the mound

certainly as good or better than any in recent memory and that will really help come playoff time, especially in a three game series. Offensively speaking the Cardinals are getting hot at the perfect

LCM uses long ball to defeat Vidor


The flounder bite continues to improve on Sabine Lake.

RECORD PHOTO: Capt. Dickie Colburn

Colburn: Flounder 2 to 4 pound class were caught in 8 to 12 feet Friday and Saturday. Most of the folks I talked with Monday said that they caught their bass in the middle portion of the day after dedicating the morning and late afternoon hours to strolling for crappie. Joel and Karen Neely said they did well in the evenings, but struggled each morning strolling 12 feet of water with 1/16th ounce tube jigs in the Indian Creek area.“We caught some of the biggest crappie we have caught this year,” said Joel, “but we never caught over 25 fish in a single afternoon.” Bucky Dials said they caught good numbers on pink-white road runners on the Six Mile flats, but couldn’t catch a crappie over a pound and a half. He added that they took it out on the bass by drifting the outside breaks of the flats with Carolina rigged motor oil centipedes.“We caught a lot of spotted bass,” said Dials, “but we could have easily limited on black bass as well if we had wanted to keep them.” Giles Manning and Darwin Landry fished Saturday and Sunday night and took advantage of a big full moon.“Darwin caught our only three fish over five pounds in two nights,” reported Manning, “but we probably caught between 60 and 70 fish and we quit about three each morning so that we could get some sleep before taking the kids white perch fishing.” Giles said they fished small buzz baits and plastic frogs around the boat docks in the back of Toro Bay. He added that they saw some pretty good crappie landed by residents fishing with minnows under the lights on the end of their docks.

We had a very decent week on Sabine Lake, but traveled south most days to get it done. The incoming tide produced a solid trout bite each day for fishermen willing to wait it out. The morning bite had been very good as well, but the water was badly off-colored and the wind was tough to deal with later in the week. This was the first weekend this spring that there has been a lot of traffic on the lake and the benefit is that with more fishermen you get more diverse reports. I talked with some people that caught trout up to four pounds fishing geaux gleaux flats Minnows under a cork and another group that limited on reds fishing slicks in the middle of East Pass on an outgoing tide. We caught our largest trout on black-white ribbed She Dogs and a pink-silver sided TTF Flush in 3 to 5 feet of water, but most of our keepers were taken on 5-inch plastics with a paddle tail. The flounder bite has only gotten better, more especially in the bayous leading into the Reserve. Gulp, small spinnerbaits and curl tail grubs tipped with a piece of shrimp have been hard to beat if you are after a mixed bag of redfish and flounder. Don’t forget that you have to have a non-resident Louisiana license to fish in the canals on the Louisiana side of the lake and that you can only bring Texas legal fish back to a landing in Texas. The Louisiana wardens and the Coast Guard have really been active for the past five weeks so double check your safety equipment and make sure you have you boater registration with you.

The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears used some power hitting to win a close game at home in District 204A in softball against the Vidor Lady Pirates last Thursday night. LCM (25-4, 10-1) won the game 4-2 for outright possession of first place in the district over the scrappy Lady Pirates who fall to (23-5, 8-3). The Lady Bears scored their runs on home runs by Kassie James, Taylor Fraccastoro and Raven Cole to play catch-up for the win. LCM has a two-game lead followed by Vidor who is tied with Nederland, followed by Port Neches-Groves and Livingston at 7-4. LCM’s next game will be at home against Livingston on April 13.

Bridge City High School freshman David Hearn and Golf Coach Rob Caraway;

BC freshman advances to golf regionals From Staff Reports For The Record David Hearn, a freshman at Bridge City High School, was the runner-up at the 3A district golf tournament last week at Wildwood Golf Club in Village Mills, Texas. The left-handed golfer was the first round leader after day one of the two day 36 hole event. Hearn would fall short on day two to Ryan Mireles of Hardin-Jefferson. “I just couldn’t be more proud of him,” said his dad, Daren Hearn.  “On Sunday, less than 24 hours before the start of the district tournament, I had to tell David that his grandfather passed away. My wife Brenda had been at the hospital the last four days around the clock with her dad. It was a really rough week for all of us. Da-

vid and his grandfather were really close to each other and he had to shoulder a lot this week.” Rob Caraway, BC golf coach said, “David showed a tremendous amount of courage and character out there. That’s a lot to ask of a young man and he handled it well. He’s only going to get better over the next three years.” In his freshman season, Hearn played in all five of Bridge City’s varsity tournaments with five top 10 finishes, including a tie for fourth at Bayou Din and second at the district championship. With his second place finish at the 3A district tournament, Hearn will represent Bridge City at the Regional tournament on April 18 and 19 at the Village of Panorama Golf Club in Willis, Texas, where the top two teams and top two individu-

Bounty fiasco may just be tip of iceberg for NFL woes KAZ’S KORNER JOE KAZMAR FOR THE RECORD

The recent incriminating audio recordings released Thursday by Yahoo! Sports about the bounty program the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams put into place during his tenure with the team between 2009 and 2011 have gotten the attention of both lawyers and congressmen. According to an article appearing in this week’s edition of ESPN The Magazine and written by Howard Bryant, Senate hearings on NFL bounties and safety are being organized. “Judgment day is coming”, according to Bryant’s article. Monetary bounties placed on the heads of various players is nothing new to the NFL. Back in 1989 when Philadelphia Eagles’ coach Buddy Ryan ordered the “take out” of the Dallas Cowboys kicker of Head Coach Jimmy Johnson, it was almost taken as a joke. In fact, a few weeks later CBS advertised the rematch as “Bounty Bowl II” whereby Ryan made no secret of his disdain for the Cowboys. Thencommissioner Paul Tagliabue even attended the second game. It was like one big joke.

H o w e v e r, 17 years later when Roger Goodell, who had been working 24 years for the NFL, succeeded Tagliabue as commissioner, he emphasized player conduct rather than player safety. “Off-field incidents, from Ben Roethlisberger to Donte Stallworth to Michael Vick so threatened the game’s image and revenue that Goodell’s tough stance earned him the nickname of the law-and-order commissioner,” the article pointed out. “But the NFL’s culture of violence simply isn’t funny anymore now that lawyers and congressmen are getting involved. Former defensive back Andre Waters is dead, suicide at age 44. “So is former defensive back Dave Duerson, whose family is suing the NFL for wrongful death after his suicide at age 50. At 52, Jim McMahon, the former helmet-banging rebel quarterback, alleges in a lawsuit that his memory loss is attributable to the NFL’s willfully lying about what it knew about the long-term dangers of head trauma.” According to a report last

month by ESPN’s Lester Munson, the NFL is facing at least 659 lawsuits related to injury or concussion. Bryant’s article continues, “Meanwhile, in the wake of revelations that the Saints offered their players financial rewards for injuring opponents and then lied about it, Senate hearings on NFL bounties and safety are being organized.” Goodell severely punished the Saints by suspending head coach Sean Payton for a season, and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams indefinitely for their roles in the bounty fiasco because of organizational arrogance and misleading him. Goodell is pondering the future of what the NFL will look like in three to five years, of how the league will respond in court when it is asked about what it knew about head injuries and what it did about bounties. The NFL is fully aware of what it sells—sheer violence, often brutal and always for maximum profit, in a cleverlydesigned and masterfully marketed package. NFL fans expect violence and often relish it as part of the game, just as knockouts are to boxing, extra-curricular

fights are to hockey and blood is to the mixed martial arts. “The commissioner obviously cares about players and their safety, but far less than he cares about money—how else to explain his previous insistence on an 18-game season? “So understand the complexity of his challenge: He is faced with the difficulty of selling football without pain, to detach its violence, to profit from the commodity of aggression while attempting to distance his sport from the bounty mentality by making its Sunday violence impersonal,” the article concludes. But it’s out in the open, a crisis the NFL has to address. And the league, knowing what it does about its business, already knows there is no easy solution. KWICKIES…The Lamar Cardinals baseball team won its second straight Southland Conference series—this time on the road –over the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks last weekend. The Cards won the opener 7-4 Thursday, lost Friday 7-5 after building an early 5-1 lead and then captured the rubber game Saturday 6-4 to improve to 5-10 in SLC play and 12-18 for the season.

ers in last weekend’s Masters Golf Tournament. But it was a flurry of birdies on the back nine Sunday that got Bubba Watson into a sudden-death playoff with Oosthuizen. A par on the second extra hole that earned Watson the prestigious green jacket. Mickelson finished two strokes off the winning 10-under-par score to finish in a four-way tie for third place and a $384,000 paycheck. Bubba, who played his college golf at the University of Georgia, pocketed a check for $1,440,000. Former Houston Astros’ closer Mark Melancon seems to be having a problem holding leads for his new team, the Boston Red Sox, and sports an 0-2 record along with a 36.00 Earned Run Average after the Detroit Tigers swept a weekend series from the Bosox and stand at 3-0 going into Tuesday’s action. Wielding the big bats for the Tigers so far this season are outfielder Austin Jackson (.517), third baseman Miguel Cabrera (.455), first baseman Prince Fielder (.417), catcher Alex Avila (417) and shortstop Jhonny Peralta (.417). And speaking of Detroit, the Tigers’ reliever and former Houston Astro Octavio Dotel set a major league record by playing for his 13th different major league team, the most among all active players. Dotel is in his 14th major league season. JUST BETWEEN US…The Houston Astros, who are supposed to do as poorly or even worst than last year’s 56-106 finish, surprised their faithful followers on the opening weekend of the 2012 season by taking two-of-three from the Colorado Rockies. The ‘Stroes rallied from a 2-1 deficit Sunday afternoon by scoring two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to win 3-2 and capture the series two games to one. It was the Astros first opening series win since 2006 and allowed them to leave the field with a winning record for the first time in Manager Brad Mills’ tenure. The last time Houston was above .500 was on July 29, 2009, at 51-50. It also was the first save for starter-turned-reliever Brett Myers since Sept. 27, 2007. And as a long-time fan, this Korner enjoyed watching the weekend series probably more than any series during the 2011 season.

Don’t spoil a good thing

Anglers willing to work flocks of birds over feeding trout can be rewarded with some great fish right now on Sabine Lake.


The sun has just broken the horizon to illuminate a relatively smooth lake surface, the temperatures are mild and the forecast is in the anglers favor. A short boat ride into the wide open expanse of Sabine is stopped so one of the anglers in the boat can glass the area with a pair of binoculars in hopes of finding a set of working birds. The glassing pays off and the boat of hopeful anglers speed off in the direction of the birds with visions of speckled trout busting shrimp racing through their mind. The boat driver pulls back on the throttle, kills the motor, and steps to the front deck to drop the trolling motor in the water so the boat can be better positioned and everyone on boars can reach the fish. Just as our anglers reach the perfect distance from the flock it happens, a familiar roar comes from various directions and the perfect scenario is about to go wrong in a big way.

Within minutes our anglers are now surrounded on all sides by half dozen boats and some very over zealous anglers. The wakes from the boat traffic turn the calm surface into a rolling unstable affair. The birds and fish are now surrounded by an “armada” of lure chunking, boat banging, would be fisherman who cannot understand why the fish and the birds suddenly disappear. This scenario will play out again many times as the over anxious anglers refuse to learn from their mistakes and turn what could have been a memorable day on the water into one full of frustration and few fish. Now if the truth were really known most anglers have been on both sides of that example, we have been both victim and villain. It’s tough for the average fisherman to have the patience to come into a

situation like the one above and not get antsy or in a hurry. All it takes is one boat to start crowding the school or moving fast and before you know it the whole herd is in stampede mode. “That guys not beating me to the fish” or “if we don’t get there we won’t get a shot at the fish” are common remarks that most fisherman make, truth be known that’s not the case at all. If anglers would come off plane earlier, use more trolling motor, approach from the upwind side, and work with other boats instead of against them everybody would catch more fish. If you want to ever see the look of surprise on somebody’s face just watch another angler when you ease up to a school of fish and ask them if it’s alright to fish near them, most people are floored that anyone would even offer to do that. I promise you if you ask politely and use common sense that on the next bunch of birds you fish that angler you spoke to earlier will do the same for you, courtesy is contagious. As good as the fishing and the weather is right now you can certainly expect increased traffic on the lake form both local and out of town anglers. The last thing you ever want to happen is to have a confrontation with someone while you are on the water. I have witnessed some very heated moments on Sabine, there have even been some altercation at the boat ramp if you can believe that, there is no fish worth that kind of behavior. Please remember a few simple rules while chasing the birds this summer, approach slow, watch your boat wakes, be courteous, do everything possible to find your own school of fish, work with other fishermen, and by all means keep your cool. Follow these simple rules and you will certainly have a memorable day on the water.

ery time he comes up to bat there are plenty of RBI’s waiting on the bases. With the welcome addition of both Matt Menard and Zach Smith swinging the bat well the Cardinal lineup will be difficult for opposing pitching to navigate. Hunter Uzzle and Cameron Dishon continue to set the tone from the top of the order as they have been tough outs and are managing to get on base enough to have scored 14 of the 38 runs the Cardinals have in district. Bridge City is averaging nearly eight runs a game in district while giving up less than one per contest. To say they are hitting their stride at the right time would be a huge understatement. The upcoming games against Silsbee will be highly contested and should be very exciting to watch. The district playoff race should become much clearer by next week and all signs point to the Cardinals being in the drivers seat now that the dugout is full and all the missing parts are back where they belong. To roundup on how Orange County teams fared this week, on Tuesday, April 3, saw the Orangefield Bobcats journey to Sour Lake and win a close game over the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks by a mere two-run lead, 10-8. The Bobcats scored one run in the first inning, four in the second, and five in the sixth. The home team Hawks scored consistently with two runs in the first, one in the second, third, and fourth; two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth. The sev-

enth inning saw neither team score. Austin Scales led the ‘Cats with three hits, followed by Jake Best and Braxton Smith with two apiece and Blake Judice and Jacob Brown with each knocking one hit off the Hawks pitching staff. Scales had the only double for the Bobcats, Best and Judice each got credit for an RBI. Thursday night, the Bobcats hosted their cross-bayou rivals, the Bridge City Cardinals. It was the ‘Cats night off as they came up scoreless against the Cards five runs. The Bobcats batted 22 times against the Cardinals’ pitching staff and saw 14 of their batters struck out. Best got the only two hits of the game for the Bobcats. Tuesday night also saw the West Orange-Stark Mustangs go to the piney woods of Silsbee to match up with the Silsbee Tigers. The Mustangs hobbled back to the stable with a 17-1 loss to the Tigers. Thursday, the Mustangs met the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks and outscored them 10-0. District 20-4A saw LCM’s Battlin’ Bears take a 9-1 win over the Lumberton Raiders last week, the Bears will meet the Ozen Panthers in Beaumont, Tuesday, April 10. On Friday the Bears will host the Beaumont Central Jaguars and Saturday they will meet the Vidor Pirates, also at the Bear’s field.

What to do when beginning an exercise regimen Staff Report

Though it’s noble to want to lose weight and improve health, regardless of what time of year it is, there are precautions men and women should take before beginning a new exercise regimen. Visit your physician. It’s best to get a full physical before beginning an exercise regimen. A full physical can reveal if you have any health problems that might limit what you should and shouldn’t be doing at the gym. If anything turns up, your physician can develop a plan of attack for you to address the issue. If nothing turns up, then your doctor will probably give you the green light to go forward with few, if any, limitations. Conduct a self-assessment. Once you’ve visited the doctor and received the go-ahead to start working out, do an honest self-assessment to see where you are in terms of fitness. Walk a mile and time yourself. Do as many push-ups and sit-ups as possible, but be careful to stretch and not push yourself. This self-assessment should not be demanding. Instead, the goal is to gauge where you are and how your body feels when doing some simple exercises. Establish your goals. The goal of most people beginning a new exercise regimen is to lose weight. However, there are other incentives as well. For example, some people might be starting to train for a marathon or another sporting event. Whatever the reason, know why you’re getting started, as such goals can help you monitor your progress as the year goes on. Start slowly. Caution should reign supreme when beginning an exercise regimen. Diving into the deep end at the onset increases the risk of injury, which could limit activity for months to come. First get your body acclimated to exercise, then gradually challenge yourself as you see fit. Leave time to recover. Though it might feel rejuvenating to get back to exercising, it’s important for everyone, but especially those who are just starting, to allow themselves some time to recover. Allow your muscles and joints to recover between workout sessions. Frequency of sessions can increase as your body gets acclimated, but at first allow a day or two between sessions so your body can recover. Listen to your body. Exercising after a long hiatus from routine exercise won’t be easy, and your body is likely going to tell you that through certain aches and pains, if not nausea, dizziness or shortness of breath. If any of these symptoms appear, take a break. This could be your body telling you that you’re asking too much and you need to take your foot off the gas pedal for a little while. Consider hiring a personal trainer. Many people are overwhelmed when entering a gym after a long time away. If you find yourself intimidated or simply don’t know where to begin, hire a personal trainer. Many charge by-the-session, so you can learn which machines to use and how to use them after a ses-

sion or two and then continue working out on your own. If joining a gym as a new member, the gym might offer a couple of complementary personal training sessions. If so, take full advantage of this offer. When beginning a new exercise regimen, don’t forget to let caution reign until your body has adjusted to this healthy lifestyle.

...Using core exercises

Fitness-conscious men and women have no doubt noticed the growing popularity of core exercises. Core exercises are those that focus on the body’s core muscles, or those around the trunk and pelvis. These exercises are a focus of fitness center programs and have even been integrated into the workout regimens of professional athletes in all sports. But those unfamiliar with core exercises might not understand why they have become so popular, or why they have proven so effective. The following are some of the reasons core exercises have become such a significant part of many training regimens. Core exercises help improve balance and stability. Core exercises require the core muscles, including the abdominals, hips, lower back, and pelvis, to work together. When muscles work together, the result is improved balance and stability, which helps athletes perform better and nonathletes better cope with the physical demands of everyday life. Core exercises improve the appearance of abdominals. While it might not be the best reason to workout, physical appearance is a significant reason many people have such a strong commitment to exercise. Core exercises strengthen and tone the underlying muscles of the abdominals. When coupled with aerobic activity that burns abdominal fat, core exercises help turn flabby abdominals into the envy of fellow fitness enthusiasts. Core exercises impact everyday life. Another reason many people commit to working their core muscles is the impact such activity has on everyday life. Core exercises help improve posture, which can reduce, if not eliminate, lower back pain and other muscle injuries. Eliminating that pain can greatly improve quality of life. In addition, core exercises can make it easier to excel in sports such as golf, a benefit that, to golfers, is worth its weight in gold. Core exercises are free. Core exercises can be done without any costly machinery, and men and women can do them at home without having to pay for a monthly gym membership. However, it helps to get some instruction before beginning a core exercise regimen, as the exercises are not easy and the risk of injury is high for the inexperienced who don’t have anyone to show them what to do.
