Art is a lifetime investment Debby Schamber For The Record

For the past 20 years Cindy Claybar has been teaching the summer art program in many schools and churches to area children in Orange County while sharing her love of art. “Among life’s greatest joys and rewards is the pleasure and gratification that accompanies the success of summer art programs, “ Claybar said. “You have children and parents who love and appreciate art as much as you love and Cindy Claybar is pictured with her 11-year-old grandson, Carter Claybar, who shares the love of art with her.

appreciate art which generates a dynamic and successful program.” The first summer art programs for the children in Orange County began in 1993 at the Thomen Community Center. It was organized while Claybar was working as the junior high school art teacher in Orangefield. The Orangefield students were the first to participate. One student Claybar fondly remembers is John David Roberts who was an outstanding artist in the class. As an adult, he became a businessman in Beaumont. However, he is still an accomplished artist and often participates in Orange County’s annual Art in the Park. Claybar’s mother, Virginia Pevoto Sandefer, told her on many occasions she was born at the Thomen Community Center when it was a hospital many years ago. Claybar could not help but wonder if the Arts and Gardens Room where she taught was once a maternity ward and perhaps the very room where she was born. In 1996 , Joe Chenella, Bridge City ISD assistant superintendent, and Larry Buchman, Bridge City Intermediate School principal were instrumental in the conception of the summer art program at BCI. This program was offered in conjunction with the computer technology camp pioneered by the computer teacher, Steve Russell. Both programs became an immediate success. Hundreds of children in second through sixth grades from Bridge City and the surrounding areas had opportu-

On Sunday, June 23, Lessie Mayes Sterns, will celebrate her 100th birthday. Lessie has lived in Bridge City about 66 years. Lessie married Daymon Quincy Sterns when she was 20 years old. They shared 64 years of wedded bliss until he died in 1998. Lessie’s drive and determination carried her throughout life allowing her to cross the boundaries of what a woman was supposed to do. During the early years, she was well known in a small Louisiana town for enjoying sports. She loved to pole vault and play basketball. Lessie was “rough and tough” too. The story around town is she would get into fights, but not with the girls, instead she fought the boys. The postmaster would close the local post office so he could watch the fights after school. Lessie would later meet the love of her life, at age 20 , and they would get married. They moved to Orange, Texas in 1947 and to Bridge City in 1947 where they bought 10 acres of land on Ferry Drive. After they moved to Orange,

nities to find means of self expression and the opportunity to learn about, understand, and enjoy creating and excelling in both art and technology. Madison Davis, who is currently studying law, was one of the first students to sign up for the art classes. During a recent visit with her mother, Kim, she recalled beautiful stepping stones her daughter had painted. The stones are still in pristine condition in her flower garden. “I fondly remember all Lon Hubbard’s daughters being outstanding artist and how much the family loved and supported the summer art program,” Claybar said. These programs flourished for many years, Claybar said. “There is no bond more common among children than the link of seeking knowledge when both the children and teacher are motivated and excited about the subject being taught,” Claybar said. ”In summer art programs the growth is not restricted and when expectations are high and both children and teacher are inspired good things will happen in class,” she added. Art programs were also held during the summer at Little Cypress Junior High for over eight years and many award winning students emerged from LCMCISD. Kayne Williams, who captured numerous outstanding honors, including the State Environmental Composition of 2011, started lessons when he was six years old. Another young artist and graduate of LC-M,Cody Cormier, took summer art as a child through the Bridge City Program and Little Cypress Program. The LCJH cafeteria was given a new face-lift by two dynamic students, Sydney Smith and Courtney Price, from the summer art program who volunteered most of their summer to paint a mural of Yellowstone National Park for the

teachers and students to enjoy. Saint Francis Catholic Church has also had a summer art program for the past 15 years. Holly Thompson, who’s mural adorns the children’s garden at Shangri La Botanical Gardens, was a student of the program for many years. She was also the teacher’s aide for Claybar at Saint Francis. To successfully teach children’s summer art program’s for twenty years and to capture the meaning and significance of their art products requires considerable understanding and appreciation of young children and the student’s friendly feeling for art, Claybar said. “As a teacher, most of us seem reasonably secure in understanding of children, but we are a lot less confident about our knowledge of art and our ability to use our art experience as one of the principal basis for learning,” Claybar said. “I have always believed with limited knowledge or experience in art, all children can learn.” Art does not have to be a “God given talent,” she added. With the lessons, and experience, all children or adults can be taught to become successful artist. Artist can learn, develop and grow and is an important part of every person’s life while extending an opportunity for students to learn about themselves and others, according to Claybar. “Art Education captures a small part of a child’s life, and like all education, in that brief period, art too has a part in laying the groundwork for all the productive years that lie ahead,” Claybar said. “Art is a timeless and universal language and when you learn art skills, you will never forget them. Art is a lifetime investment.” Over the many years she has been in Art Education, and watched children learn to express their ideas openly in visual art.

now houses and streets. Quincy Street is named after Lessie’s husband. Over the years they had five children, Billie, Bud, Jo, Judy and Jan. The children quickly learned the value of hard work when they worked in the large garden and tended to the various farm animals. Lessie’s ruby red tomatoes were well known in the area for their large size and delicious, juicy flavor. After the tomatoes were picked, they were carefully buffed like “fine china” to reveal their color and shine. The family would sell them to local grocers and later a simple sign in the yard was all that was needed for people to show up for her exceptional tomatoes. As a homemaker, Lessie was an excellent seamstress. She made clothes not only for other

children, but for other people as well. But, her hard work and dedication was not always for family. “Mom liked to do things for other people, whether it be cooking for them, sewing or taking care of someone if they were ill.,” said Jan. “She always saw the need and did her best to help.” Over the years, her family has grown to include not only her five children, but also 10 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren on the way in the near future. Her secret for living a long life is to “stay busy.” Lessie said people also need to “live a clean life” and “live for the Lord.” .

ty. The classes begin with reviewing the rules on pool and water safety. Then the fun filled classes begin. The house was built in 1954 and was put on the tax roll in 1957. The house was later remodeled and a master bedroom, a barbecue room and large indoor swimming pool was added. Williams who had started up a pool business, is said to have come to Orange and dedicated the pool ad is said to have taken a swim in it. Hogan bought the house in 1997 and cleaned the resurfaced the pool. They had to do the process again following Hurricane Ike in 2010. Williams was enthusiastic about swimming in her youth. Her older sister, Maurine, took her to Manhattan Beach and to the local pool. She took a job counting towels at the pool to pay the five cent entry fee, and while there, had swimming lessons from the male lifeguards. From them, she learned the ‘male only’ swimming strokes, including the butterfly, with which she would later break records Williams set multiple national and regional swimming records in her late teens as part of the Los Angeles Athletic Club swim team. She had planned to compete in the 1940 Summer Olympics but it was cancelled because of the outbreak of World War II. She later joined the Billy Rose’s Aquacade, where she took on the role vacated by Eleanor Holm after the show’s move from New York City to San Francisco. While there, she spent five months swim-

ming alongside Olympic gold medal winner and Tarzan star, Johnny Weissmuller. Williams caught the attention of MGM scouts at the Aquacade. It was at Aquacade where Williams first attracted attention from MGM scouts. Louis B. Mayer, of MGM, had been looking for a female sports star for the studio to compete with Fox’s figure skating star, Sonja Henie. Williams signed her contract with MGM in 1941. After appearing in several small roles, alongside Mickey Rooney and future five time costar Van Johnson in “A Guy Named Joe,” Williams made a series of films in the 1940s and early 1950s known as “aquamusicals,” which featured elaborate performances with synchronized swimming and diving. Following her retirement from film in the 1960s, Williams became a businesswoman, and lent her name to a line of swimming pools and retro swimwear and instructional swimming videos for children. Her love of swimming took her years later to work as a commentator for synchronized swimming at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.

SLOW NEWS TIME Locally the big news for over a week has been youngsters at Bridge City swimming in Cow Bayou. More ink and airtime has been used up on this one subject than any other. That shows how slow the news is. Youngsters have been swimming in Cow Bayou for 60 years that I know of. Problem is there wasn’t a boat ramp. Cow Bayou swimming is a tradition and for the most part those are not bad kids, its just normal summer fun. After all there’s not a whole bunch to do around Bridge City but now the youngsters have messed in their own nest. What should have happened is that officials gather the leaders and tell them, “Guys, if you don’t govern yourselves, the government will.” That’s exactly what happened. The kids brought the heat on themselves. Now if they will honor the 50 feet from the middle, they won’t have a problem. The leaders among the group will have to step up and see that everyone has safe summer fun and confront those who are not. Kids never have problems when they weed out the trouble makers. There you go, I’ve added my ink to the news of the day.*****Polls indicate Americans favor NSA surveillance programs, NSA chief testifies that 50 terrorist plots have been prevented since 9-11. In today’s world such programs are necessary to keep our country safe. It’s not red meat for politicians.*****  Personally, I’m not in favor of women being on the front line of battle. There’s a lot they can do but fighting out of a fox hole just doesn’t sit right with me.*****Penny says she had a lot of fun at Cotton’s all new bingo hall and she’s convinced me. She says it’s really a nice place and I’m going.***** Now I best get getting on. Come along, I promise it won’t do you no harm. MUSICAL CHAIRS ON LOCAL TV I’m sure you’ve noticed by now the big changes in the local television market. At first I thought my TV remote was lying to me. Kerry Cooper, longtime Channel Six weatherman, was doing weather on FOX. Then I noticed the news folks on Channel 12, ABC, and the ones at NBC were interchanging. Everyone is playing musical chairs but the anchors. The reason is that Channel 6 and Channel 4 have merged and Channel 12 and NBC have also merged. That really just leaves us with only two TV news outlets but another big change is coming. Gannett Company that owns USA TODAY and also the people who have been printing our papers for years, have purchased Belo Corp. for $2.2 billion. Belo has owned Channel 6 through the years. The 20 station purchase will give Gannett 43 TV stations so more changes are coming to the local TV market. Gannett paid $13.75 a share or about $1.5 billion in cash and assumed $715 million in debt. Gannett shares jumped 34 percent while Belo shares surged 28.3 percent Thursday. Gannett owns 84 newspapers. TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME 7 Years Ago-2006 BCISD shuffles cards. Principals reassigned. Four new teachers hired. When Gina Mannino graduated from Bridge City High School in 1984, she never imagined she would one day become principal of her hometown Alma Mater. She becomes the first graduate of BCHS to head the school as principal. She replaced Terry Stuebing when he and wife, Ella, both retired. Tara Fountain replaced Ella at Intermediate. She is a 1993 grad of Orangefield.*****Jessica Blanda, daughter of Coach Joe and Terri Blanda, a Bridge City student was named “Student of the Month” by the Bridge City Chamber.*****Donna Peterson, 70, on Wednesday threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Astor game at Minute Maid Park. She was nominated by her daughter, Major Donna Peterson Jr., for her mother’s heroics during Hurricane Rita. *****Eugene Pousson, 76, died June 14. *****Freda Ross Dunn, 73, of Mauriceville, died June 17. She is survived by husband of 53 years, Bill Dunn, and four children. (Editor’s note: Since then Bill has also passed away.)*****Paula Kay Broussard Swiney, 47, died June 17. She was the wife of William “Perry” Swiney. *****Paige Leanne Smith became the bride of Mathew Kyle Austin, June 17, at Winfree Baptist Church. *****Bridge City Little League 11-year-old All Stars named.

(Editor’s note: Both teams advanced after winning region to the state playoffs.) 37 Years Ago-1976 Chairman W.T. Oliver, of the Bridge City-Orangefield Community Center fund drive, reports that $20,000 has been collected of the $400,000 goal. He predicts the money will be raised and a victory banquet will be held August 12 at Wayside Inn. (Editor’s note: W.T. was the world’s greatest optimist.)*****Sam Naifeh, of Orange, was nominated at the Demo convention in Fort Worth, to be a delegate to the National convention by the Fourth Senatorial District delegates. Orange County Democratic Chairman, Pete Runnels, and

longtime Demo activist, Bob Montagne, came away from the convention with the feeling that Orange County hadn’t gotten its share and weren’t treated fairly by our neighbors. Montagne said, “That’s alright, there will be another day.” (Editor’s note: Bob meant that someone was due payback, he didn’t forget his friends or his enemies.)*****Bridge City policemen Bernis Bobbit and Steve Faircloth, under the direction of Police Chief Wilson Roberts, arrested KOGT manager Richard Corder for entering Bridge City without wearing a beard. The officers reported the hardest part was fitting him in the back seat while handcuffed. He paid his fine and was released. B.C. folks are growing beards in observance of the 1776 Bicentennial. *****One of the county’s sexiest ladies, Judy Wyatt, celebrates her birthday June 26. *****Gayle Drake replaces Joe Williamson as Harmon Chevrolet’s new car salesman. Joe has moved to Dallas. *****Louisiana Hayride comes to Little Cypress-Mauriceville. Perry Lapointe, Karen Wiltz, Pam Folsom and Doug Childers, local talent, will entertain. *****Sis Keogh was excited to meet Sen. Ralph Yarborough at the Democratic convention. Bob Sanders, former Orange County Democratic chairman, visited the delegation. (Editor’s note: sis is now a resident of an assisted living home in Beaumont.

Texan Luke Leonard is producing the epic based on Bum, football, Houston Oilers and the Astrodome. If everything goes well, the Bum opera is set to open in New York in early 2014. Bum, who had been in poor health, is approaching 90 years old. His health has improved but these days he‘s often confined to a wheel chair but can still get around. He and son Wade are both natives of Orange. *****Ron Roberts is retiring from Orange Savings Bank. A reception will be held Thursday, June 20; from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ron is a good guy.

In search of gun manufactures to come to Texas after Connecticut, Gov. Darnel Malloy signed new gun restrictions into law after 26 children and teachers were killed in New Town. Perry pitched Texas as a place to make guns. Meanwhile, he wants to get rid of Austin DA Rosemary Lechmberg because she got a DWI. I guess he won‘t be pitching for alcohol makers to come to Texas. *****Eddie and Pam Free’s son, Kellen, married pretty Jenna Smith at the Brown Center a few days ago. Nice wedding.

The newspaper predicted that the U.S. will be the world’s largest exporter of oil in 2020. That’s just seven years away. The U.S. is already the fastest growing non OPEC oil producer.

He did and the cow mooed. He tried it again and she mooed again. Clovis thought, I can put up wit dat for tree gallons of milk a day. Da next day his friend Sostan Comeaux stopped by. Clovis showed him his new cow and told him to pull on her utter. Sure nuff, she mooed.

A lot of slab has been crushed looking for Hoffa’s body. He was kidnapped from a restaurant parking lot on July 30, 1975. His case is one of the 20th century’s most vexing mysteries. The new lead came from Tony Zerilli, 85, the son of former Detroit mob boss, Joseph Zerilli, who told that Hoffa, 62, was buried there. The FBI believes Zerilli’s father gave the order to kill Hoffa. Dan Moldea, author of the book, “The Hoffa Wars” believes Zerilli’s tip is the best yet. “He’s not a screwball,” Moldea said. Hoffa was supposed to meet Tony Provenzano and Tony Jack Giacalone at the restaurant. Those two mob captains would have had to have had the younger Zerilli’s dad to sign off on the killing. I’m not placing any bet that this is the time they find Hoffa. *****I’m not shedding any tears over the “Little Rat” Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s defeat in Iran. New president Hassan Rowhani can’t be any worse. The population in Iran is young, partially westernized and tired of suffering through inflation and shortages caused by the U.S. sanctions. Their discontent is sure to grow. I’m betting the new government will recognize that and at least not be as extreme. It won’t change overnight however. If the diplomatic window starts closing, I believe that’s the time to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities. Get it over with, then remove the sanctions and let the country return to normal. ***** “Ride Sally Ride.” I sit here on Tuesday, June 18, wondering where the years have gone.

I still believe the country would be booming if the Congress, 18 months ago, would not have defeated the Jobs Bill. By the way, a new poll out Monday shows this Congress as the worst in history, with only a 10 percent approvable rating. The President’s numbers have also fallen under 50 percent.

Beat the heat with summer variety OUTDOORS CAPT. CHUCK UZZLE FOR THE RECORD

Easily one of the most alluring features of Sabine Lake area is the fact that you can catch so many different species of fish in a relatively small area. The brackish water holds both fresh and saltwater fish in good numbers as well as quality. It’s never uncommon to see a stringer of fish include flounder, redfish, speckled trout, and an occasional really nice largemouth bass. If you play your cards right you may even throw in a striped bass just for good measure. The potential for all these fish to be in the same body of water makes each strike that much more exciting because you never know who will show up to crash the party. Speaking of not knowing who will show up, it’s really going to get interesting as the summer progresses and we remain stuck in these dry conditions. In years past when we have had dry spring seasons with little or no significant run off from either Toledo Bend or Sam Rayburn a whole new group of fish begins to show up. Species like Jack Crevalle, sharks, rays, and even tarpon will make the trek up the river

as the saltwater slowly creeps farther inland. These party crashers often show up and make their presence known in the form of screaming drags and great “the one that got away” stories. Nothing gets your attention like the prospect of getting spooled and actually having to chase a fish down. In areas where lots of local anglers congregate it’s often an absolute circus when someone hooks up with a stud jack in the middle of the armada of boats. The chase scene that ensues is like something from the Bourne Identity, boats weaving in and out avoiding everything from anchor lines to fishing lines. Nothing like the prospect of catching “the big one”, it’s why we fish. Speaking of big fish and areas where people congregate you can bet that this month there will be some great fish taken at the jetties. A few very dedicated anglers will take advantage of the ultra early bite before the masses reach the rocks. Good tide changes a few hours before dawn and all the traffic is a winning recipe to help tangle with some big fish, especially trout. There are very few strikes that are as vicious as speckled trout at the jetties on topwater plugs in the dark. I used to wonder

what those boats were doing heading back to the dock as the sun was just breaking the horizon until I got a chance to try out the pattern myself. All I can say is the reward is well worth the effort. Now if fishing in the dark is not your favorite don’t worry because you can still be successful during daylight hours with a just a small variation to the pattern. Topwater plugs worked in and around the rocks will still produce some fish when the sun comes up but swim baits will just flat wear those fish out. There are several styles of swim bait you can use and they all work. The conventional plastic swim bait with a paddle tail is a great option, especially when it’s fished on a light jig head to allow for a slower fall and more subtle presentation. The other “swim bait” is a shallow running crank bait like the Swimming Image, Mann’s 1 Minus, or Rapala. These plugs are really user friendly and allow the fishermen the opportunity to dig around in and or bounce off the rocks triggering brutal strikes from some hefty speckled trout and redfish. The other great thing about all the swim baits is that they allow you to cover lots and lots of water in a short period of time making you much more productive.

Dausin joins LU football program Staff Report For The Record

After redshirting last season at the University of Houston, quarterback Rex Dausin has officially committed to continue his football career with Lamar as announced by head coach Ray Woodard on Friday. “We excited for him to be a part of our team and family,” Woodard said. “I think he’ll benefit from his stay here, and we’ll benefit as well. He comes from a strong football background with his dad being a coach and a player, and he’ll have an opportunity to do well here.” Prior to sitting out last season, Dausin put together an outstanding prep career for Warren High School in San Antonio. The 6-foot-2 signal caller was the District 27-5A Most Valuable Player as a senior after completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,310

yards with 34 touchdowns to go along with 564 yards on the ground and 15 more scores. Overall, Warren finished with an 11-2 record, and Dausin was named to the all-state second team by the Padilla Poll. “I liked him on film, and then when I interviewed him, I knew he’d be a good addition,” Woodard added. “He’s demonstrated strong leadership abilities, and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action here when we get started.” Previously, Dausin was an

all-district honoree as a junior, his first season at quarterback after beginning his high school career as a wide receiver. He also hails from an accomplished football family as his father Bryan, who also served as Warren’s head coach, along with uncles Randy and Chris played collegiately for Texas A&M. Dausin will be eligible to compete for the Cardinals in the fall, and he will have four years of eligibility remaining.

LU women’s hoops names two assistant coaches Staff Report For The Record

First-year Lamar University women’s basketball coach Robin Harmony completed her staff with the hiring of Randy Schneider and Candace Walker as assistant coaches. They join director of operations Sunny Vadopalaite, who is in her third year with the Cardinals. Schneider and Walker served as Harmony’s assistants at St. Thomas University in Miami. Schneider was with Harmony for all six of her seasons at St. Thomas, while Walker served as an assistant coach for the past two seasons. “I’m excited that Randy and Candace have agreed to come

to Lamar,” Harmony said. “They did a great job as my assistants at St. Thomas. They have a passion for the game, a great work ethic and they are able to work well with young players.” Last season, Schneider and Walker were Harmony’s assistants on a St. Thomas team that went 27-4 overall and 14-0 in the Sun Conference, as the Bobcats were ranked as high as 11th nationally in the NAIA. Prior to his time at St. Thomas, Schneider, who graduated cum laude from Florida International University, coached girls high school basketball for eight seasons, posting a 131-57 record, reaching the state tournament seven

times. Schneider also served as a head coach of the Premier Jaguars AAU basketball team in Miami and the Miami Suns, one of the premier AAU clubs in the nation. Walker, who played basketball at UNC Wilmington, earned his master’s degree in sports administration at St. Thomas while serving as an assistant coach. “I’m looking forward to working with Randy, Candace and Sunny,” Harmony said. “We all have the same goal of making Lamar the best program in the Southland Conference.” Lamar went 22-11 last season, advancing to the second round of the Women’s Basketball Invitational.

LU joins St. Elizabeth and St. Mary to host Nightingale Experience Friday, Saturday Staff Report For The Record

Thirty-four students from 16 area high schools will visit Lamar University and CHRISTUS Hospitals St. Elizabeth and St. Mary Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22, to gain first-hand experience in the nursing and medical professions. The JoAnne Gay Dishman Department of Nursing will team up with the two hospitals to host the Nightingale Experience, whose goal is to introduce local high school students to job opportunities in the nursing profession as well as to attract them to Lamar’s nursing program, said Eileen Curl, professor and chair of the Dishman Department of Nursing. Participating high schools include Anahuac, Bridge City, Evadale, Hamshire-Fannett, Hardin-Jefferson, Monsignor Kelly, Kirbyville, Legacy Christian, Lumberton, Port Arthur Memorial, Nederland, Northshore (Channelview), Port Neches-Groves, and West Brook. “We are encouraging teens to select nursing as a career,” Curl said. Now in its eleventh year, the Nightingale Experience gives students a firsthand look at nursing and the hospital setting, Curl said. “The goal is to showcase nursing while students are still making career decisions.” The experience allows stu-

dents to discuss career opportunities, visit area hospitals and work in simulated hospital settings with Lamar nursing students, faculty and those already in the profession. They will practice nursing techniques such as injections, naso-gastric tube insertion and simulations such as delivering a baby. In addition, students will participate in a blindfold bed-making and nursing uniform design contests. While attending the two-day event, the students will stay in Cardinal Village to get a feel for campus life Participants will practice nursing skills from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Friday in the McFaddin Ward Health Sciences Building at Lamar. They will be at St. Mary from 2 to 6 p.m. Friday and back on campus for games and contests from6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the McFaddin Ward Health Sciences Building and 7:30 to 10 p.m. in Cardinal Village. The group will visit St. Elizabeth from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Students will learn about nursing through discussions with faculty and by practicing skills in Lamar’s Edna Horn Gay Learning Center, Curl said. There, for example, students can assist an obstetric mannequin in delivering a baby – and help resuscitate a high-tech mannequin that is experiencing a heart attack, she said. “Nursing has many more career options than what is

portrayed on TV,” Curl said. “Students don’t realize how many options there are. By visiting both St. Elizabeth and St. Mary campuses of CHRISTUS, students obtain insights about a wide range of clinical specialty areas students can pursue in the nursing profession.” Lamar nursing instructors work closely with area school counselors to identify high school sophomores who are interested in nursing and want to learn more about job opportunities within the field, Curl said. Students are identified and nominated by their counselors, then Lamar nursing instructors select the Nightingale candidates, she said. Health care professionals predict the nursing shortage in the United States will intensify within the next 10 years. Local hospitals have recruiters who seek out qualified nurses. Curl said nursing offers good pay, flexible hours and job opportunities anywhere in the U.S. because nurses are in high demand. Lamar University offers both a four-year bachelor’s degree and a two-year associate degree in nursing, as well as graduate degrees in nursing. For information about Lamar’s nursing opportunities, contact Eileen Deges Curl, department chair, ateileen.curl@ lamar.edu or the Nursing Information Center at (409) 8808868.

Lower summer bills with Entergy’s hot weather tips Staff Report For The Record

Summer officially begins June 21. And in the South, that means family gatherings, evening cook-outs and scorching high temperatures. Before those temperatures become unbearable, Entergy Texas, Inc. wants to encourage customers to consider taking simple steps to help lower their energy bills. For starters, Entergy Texas’ Entergy Solutions program offers a wide range of energy efficiency programs designed to help homeowners improve their home’s energy efficiency at little or no charge. Whether homeowners are looking to make energy efficiency improvements to the whole house or improvements on a smaller scale like duct sealing, weather stripping, caulking around windows and much more, Entergy Solutions has programs designed to help homeowners lower their bills. Those needing more information about the program and to view other energy-saving tips and tools may go to entergytexas.com/ savemoney. The company also offers customers ways to manage payment of bills, including Pick-a-Date, in which customers decide when their bill is due, and Level Billing, which takes the surprise out of monthly energy bills. When

customers sign up for the program, they receive an estimated monthly amount based on their past 12 months of energy usage. Then, each month, their bills will vary slightly from that estimated amount based on actual usage, but they won’t see the high spikes summer and winter may bring. “In addition to Entergy’s flexible options that allow our customers to choose how their energy bill is calculated, as well as when and how they pay their bill, we’re reminding customers of hot weather tips that can save them money,” said Vernon Pierce, Entergy Texas’ director of customer service. Pierce’s energy-saving summer tips include: • Set your thermostat to 78 or the highest comfortable temperature. Each degree cooler than 78 will increase your bill as much as 3 percent. • Keep the cool air in your home circulating with ceiling, oscillating or box fans. The average ceiling fan makes a room feel 7 degrees cooler. • Use kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans to remove excess heat and humidity caused by cooking, laundering and bathing. (High humidity makes our bodies hold more heat.) • Avoid using the stove if possible and consider grilling outside instead. • Make plans to use dishwashers, washing machines and dryers –which add heat

and moisture to your home-during the coolest part of the day. • Don’t block air vents with curtains, shades or furniture. • Turn off unnecessary lights during hot weather and consider switching to cooler, energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs where light is needed. “Also, Save Me Money Do-itYourself videos are also available online at entergysavings. com,” Pierce said. “The videos demonstrate installing a <?>programmable thermostat, caulking windows and doors, changing air filters and installing insulation among others.” Entergy Texas, Inc. provides electricity to more than 400,000 customers in 27 counties. It is a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation. Entergy, which celebrates its 100th birthday this year, is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including more than 10,000 megawatts of nuclear power, making it one of the nation’s leading nuclear generators. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.8 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

WINNERS BINGO!

Penny Leleux For The Record

“Bingo!” That is what every person in the hall hopes to holler. “Bullet!” or the name of one of several other pull tab games would be the next best thing. Those words were silent for a couple of weeks in Vinton, La. after the Texas Pelican closed its doors on May 19. People used to playing the game several times a week had to find somewhere else to play or suffer withdrawals until the new hall in Vinton opened June 5. Friday’s player count was around 227 for the early session and is growing as players find out the new hall is open. Cotton’s Corner Bingo opened its doors that Wednesday and began the progressive and bonus pots on June 10. Barbara Dishon won the Progressive pot on June 10 and Lashanda Bridges won the Bonus pot June 11, which is very unusual. What would normally be time for a huge celebration, winning a large pot, probably wasn’t as big of a celebration because the pots were only at $100 and $200 respectively. Don’t feel too bad for them though, because the pots accompany a $1,000 payout for the game itself. The progressive and bonus pots build $100 each session until they are won or until they reach the maximum allowed by law of $25,000. If they reach the maximum before being won, they cap that pot and start building another one, $100 at a time. The Pelican had three $25,000 pots built up that had to be given away before it closed, which shows how unlikely it is for someone to win them on day one and day two. Built by Ray Cotton, owner

of the Longhorn Complex, the layout and features of the brand new building was designed by Debbie Perry. Having played in all area Bingo halls, Perry said “I took the best of all of them.” The building has a capacity for 900 players. The nonsmoking area is a glassed off separate room. Some nonsmokers are choosing to play with the majority in the main room as seven commercial smoke eaters keep the air clean “It’s not smoky in here like the other one,” said Perry. “I’m a smoker, and I couldn’t breathe.” Helen Clark agrees the smoke free environment is one of the best things about the new hall. “It’s really nice in here,” she said. There is also plenty of room so you don’t have to get there early to save a spot. They had to put more tables and chairs after just the first session and will continue to do so as needed until they get to capacity crowds. Parking is plentiful and soon there will be a canopy for dropping off players at the door in bad weather. The

building also seems to absorb noise as it was much quieter than most halls, which is a definite plus if you have a hard time hearing. The organizations and schedule of sessions remains the same as was previously held at the Pelican. Bingo machines are available during some sessions starting at $45. Currently, snacks such as candy and chips and fountain drinks are the only thing available in the concession stand and you are allowed to bring outside food. Melanie Cotton said they hope to have the full concession stand in operation around July 1 offering burgers, fries, chicken strips, salads and such. “Wednesday mornings we will have little breakfast sandwiches,” said Cotton. Sessions begin with an early bird game. There are sessions held every day with two sessions held on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Saturday has three sessions for you gaming pleasure.

If it is your first time playing, don’t start off with a $20 pack of cards. Try a $10 or $15 pack until you get the hang of things. Cotton had never played Bingo until the Corner opened. Her husband Trey bought her a $20 pack and she admitted it was hard to keep up. She has played a few times more with smaller packs and is starting to get the rhythm of the game. Additional games such as the early bird, speed and progressive are bought separately at the cost of $1-$2 per sheet, depending on the game. Pull tabs are $1 and payouts vary. The physical address to Cotton’s Corner Bingo is 2360 Hwy 109 South. Take Vinton exit 4. Instead of turning right to go to the Pelican, turn left and go over Interstate 10 to the other side.

The 2013 edition of the “Do It In Orange” Fishing Classic is set for this weekend June 22 and 23 with $20,000 in prize money up for grabs .Last year’s event somehow came in u n d e r the radar, but there isn’t a chance of that happening this year as folks were talking about fishing this year’s tournament even before the 2012 final weighin! The format is a little different in that a single entry fee of $100 puts your two man team in the hunt for the top prize money in any or all of the three different divisions. The first place check for the 6 heaviest specks, 6 heaviest bass and 4 largest reds over a two day period is $2000 and each division will pay ten places. All 30 winners will also win a $500 gift certificate from David Self Ford. Folks staying in any Orange County hotel for the event would also do well to hang on to their receipt for an additional $500 drawing on June 23. Anglers can use artificial lures only and each team can weigh in 3 bass, 3 trout and 2 redfish per day. The bass must meet the 14’ minimum and only live bass can be weighed in. Each team is allowed only one trout over the 25” mark per member each day and the redfish must be 20 to 27 inches in length. Live fish in each category will receive a ¼ pound bonus which could very easily be

The $64 question for those of you currently riding the fence on whether or not to enter is “What is it going to take to win this thing?” The wind will be a big factor, not so much for the bass fishermen, but certainly for those teams chasing down specks and reds for two days. Based strictly on what has been going on for me over the past three weeks, I look for the trout division to produce some great weights, the redfish may very well do the same thing and the bass division is going to be a grind. Remember that you

are not fishing against pros or guides, but there are lots of fishermen in this area that can out fish both the pros and guides. If the wind backs off for the weekend it will be a wide open competition for the saltwater divisions as we have found some great slot reds and trout up to five pounds working under the gulls all over the lake. If I were a betting man, however, I would bet that it will blow and you are going to have to fish a solid pattern. The good news is that the trout are still doing their thing in the wind as we have caught a number of fish from six to seven pounds and limits almost every day. I think the winning trout will come out of the lake and I look for the winning two day total to be between 25 and 30 pounds. There are certainly enough quality

slot redfish in the backwater marshes to win this thing, but I believe the winning fish will come off the jetties…. wind or no wind. I look for that total to be somewhere between 30 and 32 pounds. A lot of local bass fishermen now know a great deal more about their local fishery than they did prior to the Bassmaster tournament back in March, but it is still going to be a challenge this weekend due mostly to the high water. I would bet on someone winning it in Taylor’s Bayou, but it could happen anywhere with the excellent water clarity in the rivers and the shad hatch in full bloom. We were finishing up a trip and fishing for flounder on an incoming tide earlier this week when we found the bass blowing up on small

We put them all back, but they spit small shad all over the floor of the boat. I think it will take 12 to 16 pounds to win that division. It is going to be a great tournament and it will be well attended as more and more folks realize what a great fishery we have in our backyard.

We have been on a little different pattern of late and haven’t been using the VuDu shrimp, but here is something to consider when putting the hot little lure away at the end of the day. Don’t store it with the rest of your plastic tails as they will reduce it to a pile of melted gunk. I talked with Ken Chaumont with Egret baits and he did his best to walk me through the chemical properties of most plastic lures, but I can barely spell chemistry and just wanted to know how to avoid that expensive problem. Depending on the choice of compounds a plastic tail can either be softer and far more flexible or harder, but significantly tougher. The softer plastics will eat up everything from a Rat-LTrap to the VuDu shrimp when you leave them in contact with one another. In this case, however, tougher is better with the shrimp as long as you keep it away from your other plastics!

KAZ’S KORNER JOE KAZMAR FOR THE RECORD

Since purchasing the Houston Astros two summers ago, new owner Jim Crane realizes that right now he is among the least popular sports figures around the city of Houston. “People like to win—and certainly I like to win—and we’re not comfortable where we’re at,” Crane said last week in a radio interview by ESPN. “Hopefully, people will turn around and come in our direction, but that’s gonna come when we start winning more ballgames than we’re losing,” Crane continued. “We know that, and that’s what we’re working for. “We seem to go in streaks,” Crane pointed out. “When the pitching is good, we can’t score any runs, and then it goes the other way. But the team is playing competitive baseball. We have been in every game for quite a while and had a couple of winning streaks (six straight wins before the last road trip and now four in a row through Sunday) so hopefully we’ll turn it around quickly.” One of the first positive moves the former college pitcher did was to get rid of team president George Postolos and quickly replaced him with Reid Ryan, oldest son of Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan, a move loudly applauded in baseball circles. Other changes Crane has made since his group took over the Astros were not so obvious, like the team moving its spring training headquarters from Kissimmee to West Palm Beach Gardens,

Patients lead the way as medicine grapples with Apps Martha Bebinger NPR News Service

Christine Porter is hooked on the MyFitnessPal app. In October, after deciding to lose 50 pounds, Porter started typing in everything she eats, drinks and any exercise she gets. “This is my main page here,” says Porter. “It’s telling me I have about 1,200 calories remaining for the day. When I want to record something I just click the ‘add to diary’ button. I’m on it all day either through my phone or through the computer.” She says she’s lost 42 pounds in nine months, according to NPR. Health apps like MyFitnessPal are turning smartphones and tablets into exercise aids, blood pressure monitors and even devices that transmit an electrocardiogram. But the explosion of apps is way ahead of tests to determine which ones work. Porter heard about the fitness app from Ryan Sherman, her health coach at a for employees of Massachusetts General Hospital. Sherman helps peoople turn a doctor’s orders into action for keeping high blood pressure or sugar levels in check. Increasingly, says Sherman, patients with diabetes or heart problems are coming in, pulling out their phones, and saying, “Hey, have you seen this app?” “There’s a new one every day, so it’s trying to keep up with

Fla. within three years and to have their Class AAA franchise re-located from Oklahoma City to The Woodlands. And more important, to field a team that goes to spring training dreaming big, with a competitive payroll that is at least among the top 10 in major league baseball, Crane promises. “I think you’ll see the payroll move up to the $100 million range in the next three or four years, Crane predicted. “You’ll see it move up significantly. It won’t go any lower, I can tell you that.” But in reality, Crane instead has a team that probably won’t be very good for at least a couple of years, 60 per cent of the fans have no television to watch the team’s games and the Astros’ atten-

dance is next-to-last in the American League. So when your team bottoms out, fortunately there is only one way to go and that is up. And this year’s edition of the Houston Astros appears to be moving in the right direction. The Astros are 16-14 in the last 30 games through Sunday’s 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox, and manager Bo Porter has to take some of the credit for their recent success. “I give these guys (players), staff and this entire organization credit,” Porter said. “Everybody stayed positive and comes to the ball park each and every day ready to fight and put out maximum effort,” Porter continued. He singled out catcher/designated hitter Jason Castro as

rivaling second baseman Jose Altuve as the Astros’ most All-Star-worthy athletes. “Jason has found his groove,” said Porter, who credits the Astros’ move to the American League with allowing Castro to stay fresh by balancing the demands of catching while occasionally serving as the DH. “He understands exactly what he is doing, he’s healthy and his legs are underneath him, and its allowing him to put together an All-Star-type season.” Another reason the Astros are getting better is that during the club’s 16-14 run, the starting pitchers have gone 11-8 with a 3.03 ERA. The pitchers regularly credit their coach Doug Brocail, Castro

Hot Dogs, Bacon And Red Meat Tied To Increased Diabetes Risk National Public Radio News Release

You’ve likely heard about the link between. But fresh research ties another dietary pattern to increased risk of the disease, too: eating too much red meat. A recent studies linking carnivorous habits to health problems seem to be piling up. Now, there’s research that links red meat consumption to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to Allison Aubrey of NPR news service. The researchers tracked what happens after people changed their meat-eating habits, using data from the Health Professionals Followup Study and the Nurses’ Health Study, which include about 100,000 people. Diet was assessed by food frequency questionnaires. “Some people [in the study] increased their red meat consumption and other people decreased their consumption,” says of the Harvard School of Public Health, one of the co-authors of the paper, which appears in JAMA Internal Medicine. The study found that among those who started eating more red meat, about 3.5 servings more per week, the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes during four years of follow-up increased by almost 50 percent, which Hu describes as “a really large increase.” As with previous studies linking red meat to health concerns, the researchers found that processed red meats such as hot dogs and bacon were more strongly associated with the risk of diabetes.

A recent study links red meat consumption to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Among those who starting eating less red meat, the risk of developing diabetes dropped by about 14 percent during a 10-year follow-up period. Now, to put this study in context, it’s important to point out that the most significant driver of Type 2 diabetes is body weight. People who are overweight and obese are much more likely to develop the condition. Since red meat is typically high in calories and fat, some

that,” Sherman says. That’s one reason why many doctors are suggesting, but not prescribing apps. Doctors aren’t sure which of the roughly 40,000 do what they claim to do. The Food and Drug Administration divides health apps into two categories: those that help with healthful lifestyles and those that turn your phone into a to, say, record blood pressure or an EKG, and then send those readings to a doctor. The FDA is working on for the mobile medical apps that can turn a mobile platform into a medical device. It does not plan to regulate diet or exercise apps. A few private companies are stepping in to do that task. Ben Chodor started , a company that reviews apps and gives those that at least perform correctly a seal of approval. “It’s the Wild West and someone needs to come in and at least help the consumers and the clinicians and the payers sort through the forty thousand-plus apps that are already out there,” says Chodor. Happtique does not say which apps work better than others or guarantee their safety. Still, , a cardiologist who directs the Scripps Translational Science Institute in San Diego, says apps that monitor blood pressure or glucose rates can be more valuable than prescriptions to keep these conditions in check. “When we use a medication, we don’t know if it’s going to work or not. It’s much better when a person’s taking their blood pressure on a frequent basis,” says Topol. “The average person looks at their smartphone 150 times a day, so all of a sudden they’re able to diagnose if their blood pressure’s adequately controlled and what are the circumstances when it’s not.” Topol has twice used an iPhone app and a heart monitor to while on airplanes. In one case, a woman had . In another, the man was having a heart attack. The plane was diverted so he could be treated. But Laura Ferris, a dermatologist at the University of Pittsburgh, urges patients to use apps cautiously. “It does make sense that people who download these apps and use them really understand that they are doing so at their own risk,” says Ferris. Ferris ran a of apps that claim to detect skin cancer based on a picture of a mole. Only one of the apps sends the picture to a dermatologist. It was right 98 percent of the time.

and reserve catcher Carlos Corporan with guiding their turnaround. And last, but not least, many of the young prospects the Astros picked up when they traded off most of their high-dollar veterans are really blossoming at their Class AA Corpus Christi club. Hooks manager Keith Bodie, who was the 2012 Texas League Manager of the Year, said his 2013 squad is the best collective unit he has been around in about five years and he is in his sixth year in the Astros’ farm system. The talent-laden 2013 Hooks are playing at a .625 winning percentage, which is the best among any of the Astros’ four full-season minor league affiliates and some of the best baseball in the entire minor leagues. The Hooks’ trio of right-handed starting pitchers—David Martinez (9-0), Jake Buchanan (7-0) and Mike Foltynewicz (3-0)—are a combined 19-0 with 150 strikeouts. Through last week the team had won 15-of-21 contests and had six players named to the Texas League AllStar team. “Help is coming, Houston,” bubbled Hooks’ hitting coach Tim Garland. “We’ve got pitchers that are throwing no-hitters down here and hitters that are hitting the ball 500 feet and a defense that is phenomenal. Just hold on, Houston, help is on the way. I can’t stress that enough!” KWICKIES…Phil Mickelson finished second Sunday in the U.S. Open for the sixth time, but unlike many previous tourneys, he didn’t crash and burn in the final round. The popular lefty remained in contention throughout the entire tournament, and did have his worst round Sunday when he shot a four-over-par 74, but he kept rallying back after a bad hole and merely ran out of holes to finish two strokes behind eventual winner Justin Rose, who won with a one-over-par 281. Pre-tourney favorite Tiger Woods never was in contention and finished in the middle of the pack with a 13-over

experts say that it’s likely these factors that create the link between heavy red meat consumption and and increased risk of diabetes. But in this study, the link held up even after the researchers controlled for the role of weight gain. And this suggests that there’s an independent effect of red meat consumption increasing the risk of diabetes. It’s not clear what’s happening in the body, but there are a few theories. It’s possi-

ble that heavy red meat consumption can lead to iron overload, which sets the stage for insulin resistance. “Our understanding is that, especially [when they occur in] processed meats, these nitrosamines can cause inflammation,” explains , who directs the diabetes center at Massachusetts General Hospital. And there’s also some evidence that nitrosamines can damage the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. But experts say more research is needed to understand these connections. In the meantime, Nathan says his advice is to pay attention to the big picture. If you like the occasional hot dog, that’s OK. It’s the overall pattern of eating and maintaining a healthy weight that’s most important. “Red meat should be considered in the setting of a balanced diet,” says Nathan.

293. Tiger’s putter went sour for him as he used 126 putts over the 72 holes. One of the U.S. Open highlights involved former Lamar University golfer Shawn Stefani’s hole-in-one on the 229-yard No. 17 Par 3 on Sunday. What makes it such a feat is that the 31-year-old Baytown native is the first golfer to make a hole-in-one at any of the five U. S. Open tournaments hosted by Merion Golf Club just outside of Philadelphia. He used a four-iron and it was only the second ace in his life. The first one was recorded at Goose Creek Country Club in Baytown when he was 13 years old. And while on the subject on holes-in-one and closer to home, Dave McClenan used a Hybrid 2-wood to ace the196-yard Par 3 No. 6 hole at Sunset Grove Country Club last Thursday. The feat earned Dave a check for $200 for being an active member of the Men’s Golf Association. Still on the topic of golf, Orange native Scott Sterling fired a four-under-par 67 on Sunday’s final round of the Web.com Tour Air Capital Classic at Wichita, Kan. to finish with 278, tied for 28th place. Sterling collected a check for $4,274 while the tournament winner Scott Parel earned $117,000 for his winning score of 18-under par 266. Baylor All-American basketball player Brittney Griner seems to fit right in with the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA as she scored 16 points Sunday to help her team beat Tulsa Shock 108-103 in overtime. Griner hit six-of-10 shots and was 4-for-4 at the free-throw line. JUST BETWEEN US…If the San Antonio Spurs can win just one game in Miami this week they will snatch the NBA World Championship trophy from the Heat players, who have been the NBA kingpins for a year. The Spurs went ahead in the best-of-seven series 3-2 after shooting 60 per cent from the field Sunday night in San Antonio to win 114-104.

Beat the heat with summer variety OUTDOORS CAPT. CHUCK UZZLE FOR THE RECORD

Easily one of the most alluring features of Sabine Lake area is the fact that you can catch so many different species of fish in a relatively small area. The brackish water holds both fresh and saltwater fish in good numbers as well as quality. It’s never uncommon to see a stringer of fish include flounder, redfish, speckled trout, and an occasional really nice largemouth bass. If you play your cards right you may even throw in a striped bass just for good measure. The potential for all these fish to be in the same body of water makes each strike that much more exciting because you never know who will show up to crash the party. Speaking of not knowing who will show up, it’s really going to get interesting as the summer progresses and we remain stuck in these dry conditions. In years past when we have had dry spring seasons with little or no significant run off from either Toledo Bend or Sam Rayburn a whole new group of fish begins to show up. Species like Jack Crevalle, sharks, rays, and even tarpon will make the trek up the river

as the saltwater slowly creeps farther inland. These party crashers often show up and make their presence known in the form of screaming drags and great “the one that got away” stories. Nothing gets your attention like the prospect of getting spooled and actually having to chase a fish down. In areas where lots of local anglers congregate it’s often an absolute circus when someone hooks up with a stud jack in the middle of the armada of boats. The chase scene that ensues is like something from the Bourne Identity, boats weaving in and out avoiding everything from anchor lines to fishing lines. Nothing like the prospect of catching “the big one”, it’s why we fish. Speaking of big fish and areas where people congregate you can bet that this month there will be some great fish taken at the jetties. A few very dedicated anglers will take advantage of the ultra early bite before the masses reach the rocks. Good tide changes a few hours before dawn and all the traffic is a winning recipe to help tangle with some big fish, especially trout. There are very few strikes that are as vicious as speckled trout at the jetties on topwater plugs in the dark. I used to wonder

what those boats were doing heading back to the dock as the sun was just breaking the horizon until I got a chance to try out the pattern myself. All I can say is the reward is well worth the effort. Now if fishing in the dark is not your favorite don’t worry because you can still be successful during daylight hours with a just a small variation to the pattern. Topwater plugs worked in and around the rocks will still produce some fish when the sun comes up but swim baits will just flat wear those fish out. There are several styles of swim bait you can use and they all work. The conventional plastic swim bait with a paddle tail is a great option, especially when it’s fished on a light jig head to allow for a slower fall and more subtle presentation. The other “swim bait” is a shallow running crank bait like the Swimming Image, Mann’s 1 Minus, or Rapala. These plugs are really user friendly and allow the fishermen the opportunity to dig around in and or bounce off the rocks triggering brutal strikes from some hefty speckled trout and redfish. The other great thing about all the swim baits is that they allow you to cover lots and lots of water in a short period of time making you much more productive.

Dausin joins LU football program Staff Report For The Record

After redshirting last season at the University of Houston, quarterback Rex Dausin has officially committed to continue his football career with Lamar as announced by head coach Ray Woodard on Friday. “We excited for him to be a part of our team and family,” Woodard said. “I think he’ll benefit from his stay here, and we’ll benefit as well. He comes from a strong football background with his dad being a coach and a player, and he’ll have an opportunity to do well here.” Prior to sitting out last season, Dausin put together an outstanding prep career for Warren High School in San Antonio. The 6-foot-2 signal caller was the District 27-5A Most Valuable Player as a senior after completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,310

yards with 34 touchdowns to go along with 564 yards on the ground and 15 more scores. Overall, Warren finished with an 11-2 record, and Dausin was named to the all-state second team by the Padilla Poll. “I liked him on film, and then when I interviewed him, I knew he’d be a good addition,” Woodard added. “He’s demonstrated strong leadership abilities, and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action here when we get started.” Previously, Dausin was an

all-district honoree as a junior, his first season at quarterback after beginning his high school career as a wide receiver. He also hails from an accomplished football family as his father Bryan, who also served as Warren’s head coach, along with uncles Randy and Chris played collegiately for Texas A&M. Dausin will be eligible to compete for the Cardinals in the fall, and he will have four years of eligibility remaining.

First-year Lamar University women’s basketball coach Robin Harmony completed her staff with the hiring of Randy Schneider and Candace Walker as assistant coaches. They join director of operations Sunny Vadopalaite, who is in her third year with the Cardinals. Schneider and Walker served as Harmony’s assistants at St. Thomas University in Miami. Schneider was with Harmony for all six of her seasons at St. Thomas, while Walker served as an assistant coach for the past two seasons. “I’m excited that Randy and Candace have agreed to come

to Lamar,” Harmony said. “They did a great job as my assistants at St. Thomas. They have a passion for the game, a great work ethic and they are able to work well with young players.” Last season, Schneider and Walker were Harmony’s assistants on a St. Thomas team that went 27-4 overall and 14-0 in the Sun Conference, as the Bobcats were ranked as high as 11th nationally in the NAIA. Prior to his time at St. Thomas, Schneider, who graduated cum laude from Florida International University, coached girls high school basketball for eight seasons, posting a 131-57 record, reaching the state tournament seven

times. Schneider also served as a head coach of the Premier Jaguars AAU basketball team in Miami and the Miami Suns, one of the premier AAU clubs in the nation. Walker, who played basketball at UNC Wilmington, earned his master’s degree in sports administration at St. Thomas while serving as an assistant coach. “I’m looking forward to working with Randy, Candace and Sunny,” Harmony said. “We all have the same goal of making Lamar the best program in the Southland Conference.” Lamar went 22-11 last season, advancing to the second round of the Women’s Basketball Invitational.

Zoe Casteel was recognized by the Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD School Board for being accepted into the Air Force Academy. Stacey Brister, director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction, introduced Zoe and her father Allen Casteel. Zoe will compete with the AF Academy pole vaulting team. This scholarship is valued at $500,000.

Jennifer Doyle, Ag teacher and sponsor of the new Bass Club at LCM High School, told the Board about the program and since the inception of the organization in March 2013, there are now 48 members. The group participated in two tournaments this spring. In the first, they had third and ninth place finishes out of 40 competing two-man teams. In the second, which they also sponsored, they took the top three places. Representatives of the team included Bruce Burns, Bass Club President, and his two-man teammate Kenny Marple, and Payton Collins, vice president of the group.

Dr. Hargrove introduced some of the Political Action Committee members who were instrumental in passing the recent bond election. On behalf of the board, administration, students, parents, and community, she expressed deep appreciation for their efforts, saying, “This would not have happened without you.” Pictured are, from left, Joe Alvarez, Jim Brown, Sylvia Bland, Jim Clark, Katy Beckett, Jodi Purgahn, Nelda Burton, and Marian Perkins.

Celebrate Independence Day with free Symphony concert Staff Report For The Record

The Symphony of Southeast Texas (SOST) once again joins the City of Beaumont for the annual July 4th Celebration in downtown Beaumont. The orchestra’s patriotic concert will be held at 8 p.m. inside the Julie Rogers Theatre and is FREE and open to the public. Following the concert, at 9 p.m., the festivities conclude with a grand fireworks display. The musical salute to our nation’s independence will include “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Bugler’s Holiday,” “Fanfare and Celebration” by the SOST’s own timpanist Gary Parks and more. The Symphony will also perform Sousa’s “Washington Post March” with guest conductor Kristen Davis, a band student at Vidor ISD and recipient of a donation of the Symphony Ball’s July 4 Guest Conductor auction item. The concert will also in-

clude a “Salute to the Armed Forces” honoring servicemen and women from past and present. The concert is sure to be as explosive as the fireworks show that follows.

Concert contributors include HEB, Mobiloil Federal Credit Union, Marine Fueling, the Symphony League of Beaumont and the City of Beaumont.
