W.J. ‘Dub’ Davis honored by county Nicole Gibbs

For The Record

On Tuesday, the Orange County Commissioners’ Court honored W.J. “Dub” Davis who retired on Aug. 31 from serving as Chief Deputy Constable of Precinct Four. Davis started his public service career in 1957 when he and two other gentleman started the Vidor Volunteer Fire Department and he served the fire department in different capacities until the 90s. He started his law enforcement career in 1960 the Vidor City Marshall. He has worked for the city of Vidor in many difference capacities as well and even served at interim chief. He then went to work for the Orange County Sheriff’s of-

fice, where he served under Chester Holtz. About 40 years ago, Davis began working with the Orange County Precinct Four Constables office under Carl Ward. “When I first took office, Dub help make my job a little bit easier,” Pct. 4 Constable Weldon Peveto said. “He not only became my friend, he became part of my family.” Peveto went on to explain that David stood for three things: honesty, integrity and loyalty. “He is the epitome of an East Texas Lawman and I am proud to have served with Dub all these years,” Peveto said. Peveto presented Davis with a plaque from Orange County to thank him for all the dedi-

Burn Ban The system that came through did offer a little relief for Orange County but is by no means a drought-breaker. “I believe we’ll be perfectly

safe within the next seven to 14 days to lift the burn ban and give folks a chance to get caught up,” Jeff Kelley, director of Emergency Management, said. “I think we’ll be

From a town once called Prairie View, the bridges of Bridge City gave it it’s name. The place is blessed with them. Two of it’s namesake bridges are on the National Register of Historic Places securing their mark on the historic landscape of Texas. One of them, the Cow Bayou Swing Bridge, has reached a new milestone in Bridge City history. A commemorative ribbon cutting will be held in recognition of the 70th Anniversary of the 1941 dedication of the swing bridge. The ceremony will kick-off the inaugural Bridge City Heritage Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1. The ribbon cutting will take place at the Cow Bayou Swing Bridge at 9 a.m. Gates open for the festival on the Community Center grounds at 10 a.m.

When organized in 1973, one of their lesser known objectives was to foster harmony between the races. A better known objective was to give seniors a way to supplement their incomes and preserve crafts that had long been a part of American households, which include quilting, knitting, crocheting, sewing and detailed art work such as woodworking, painting and jewelry making. An estimated 3,000 people attended the 1941 dedication of the Cow Bayou Swing Bridge. The ribbon was cut by Miriam David, daughter the president of the Orange Chamber of Commerce. The Bengal Guards of Orange and the Red Hussars of Port Arthur marched towards the Cow Bayou Bridge from opposite directions and met in the center of the span for the ribbon cutting.

The Bridge City Heritage Festival is being hosted by the Historical Museum of Bridge City, a nonprofit charitable organization formed in 2009 to help preserve local history and enhance tourism. Proceeds raised from the festival will go toward the future waterfront park on Cow Bayou in Bridge City. The heritage festival will feature carnival rides, entertainment headlined by Britt Godwin, arts and crafts, food and an arcade of games and contests. A children’s area will include games, a coin toss, duck pond, ring toss, milk bottle baseball throw, Plinko and a cow patty throw. On the Community Center grounds a beer garden will be sectioned off with dancing under the pavilion. The festival will spill over to the Knights of Columbus Hall where there will be an antique and classic car show and judging. “The festival will be a mix of BRIDGE CITY PAGE 3A

The shop proved quite successful and was supported by the appreciative community for many years. For 30 years, the Thrift and Gift was on 5th street in downtown Orange. After many years, the old building deteriorated beyond repair and many felt the Thrift and Gift would close its doors forever. Pat Putnam, one of the founders of the Thrift and Gift, was determined to not let this happened and found space in the old Salk School on 37th Street in Orange after that property was pur-

chased by PLAN, another organization she supported. With unbelievable help from volunteers, a wing was remodeled. This labor of love resulted in the Thrift and Gift Shop have a grand reopening in 2003. The shop still sells many handmade items made by seniors. Quilting is still a big part of their business. Ladies from the local community gather on Tuesdays and Thursdays to socialize and en-


We Remember Sept. 11, 2001 Nicole Gibbs

For The Record

Greg Hayes, Penny LeLeux and Darla Diagle contributed to this story. It’s a moment time that many will never forget. On Sept. 11, 2001, a shadow was cast over America as thousands of people watched the worst terror attack on America, killing over 3,000 people. At 8:45 a.m., the first plane crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. At 9:03 a.m., the second plane crashed into the south tower. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon at 9:43 a.m. The south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed at 10:05 a.m.; the north tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m. United Airline Flight 93 from Newark, New Jersey en route San Francisco, Calif., crashed in Shanksville, Penn. Less than an hour into the flight, the Flight 93 suddenly changed course, heading in the direction of Washington D.C. It was believed that this plane was headed for the White House. When we thought all hope was lost, a story of ultimate heroism came to light. A cockpit voice recorder

revealed several passengers and crew members attempted to take back the hijacked plane. At 10:10 a.m., Flight 93 crashed in a meadow near Shanksville, Penn., destroying the plane and instantly killing all on board. We watched as innocent lives were lost, we watched as buildings came crashing down, and we watched as the dust finally settled down to show complete and utter devastation. But we also watched as fire departments, police men and women, volunteers and complete strangers came together to search for people buried in the rubble. Orange County resident Rick Singer was enjoying a day of golf and relaxation when he first learned about the events of September 11th. At first, he wasn’t sure what to think. “My friend and I had just played nine holes at Bayou Den and we went back to the clubhouse to take a break,” Singer said. “We saw the footage of the plane hitting the first World Trade Center tower on a TV. At first, we thought it was just a joke, a hoax being played. No one knew about the Pentagon attack or the attempt on the White House (Flight 93) yet.”





Singer said that he and his friend went out to play another three rounds, but didn’t feel right. “It was a really strange

feeling, so we went back to the clubhouse,” he said. “We watched the footage of the atWE REMEMBER PAGE 2A

County business Orange County from Tropical Storm Lee will dry out and the long range forecast is not good. The burn ban was lifted for the time being and the Commissioners will reassess the wild fire conditions on Monday, Sept. 12. Fair Housing Activity Statement The Commissioners adopted a resolution, on Tuesday, that takes a stand against unfair housing practices. This resolution is necessary to apply for round two of the Ike funding available. The Fair Housing Activity Statement says that Orange County discourages discriminatory real estate loan practices as well as racial discrimination, develop a website to promote fair housing and assist in educating the public, seek funding for development and long term development to improve infrastructure and county development plans. “Even though Orange County does not conduct housing activities, we are still required address these issues,” Kelley said. Other business The Commissioners approved filing into the minutes revenue received in the amount of 49.800 from the city of West of Orange and $342.68 from the city of Pine Forest. These funds are to reimbursement the County for road materials. The total for bills paid this week is $243,727.62 including $36,057.90 to Cleveland Construction, Inc., from the general fund for the Justice of the Peace Three facility; and $55,010.84 to G&G Enterprises from the general fund for the MEP Relocation, Orange County Courthouse. The County adopted changes made to the Orange Count Transportation Drug and Alcohol Policy stating the County now has a “zero

tolerance policy.” These changes were mandated by the Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission. The Commissioners agreed to allow the Transportation Department to purchase a van from Philpott Motors for $21,074.39. This van will be used as back up if one the lunch/passenger vans breaks down. The Commissioners also agreed to allow Connie Cassidy, County Purchasing Agent, to advertise for bids on the County’s annual requirements for Bulk Medical Supplies.

We Remember 9/11 tacks and the buildings come down. At that moment, we knew we were at war, but we just didn’t know who with as we had not even heard about al Qaeda or who they were at that time.” Singer said that the day of relaxation was over and he left and headed for home. “It was surreal,” he said. “I was wanting to get home and check on my family and at the same time I was worried that someone might try to attack chemical row.” Singer said that when he learned of Osama Bin Laden’s death in Pakistan earlier this year, he was glad that justice was served. “Having served in the Navy (1976-79), I’m glad it was the Seals that got him,” he said. “I’m glad that they buried him at sea too. The more details that came out about the raid, and him hiding behind his wife? I’m glad that we got to see what a coward he really was.” Butch Campbell, director of security and external relations at Lamar State CollegeOrange, said that the atmosphere at the campus was one of shock and solemnness that fateful day, ten years ago this Sunday. “My dad had called me here at work and told me to turn the news on,” Campbell said. “I went over to the library and turned a TV to a news station. As information trickled

in, the mood here was just solemn and minutes seemed like hours. The closest I can remember this kind of feeling was when President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. The campus had that same type of feeling, as it was just eerily quiet. “Fewer and fewer cars were in the parking lot as people just started going home.” Campbell said that he feels a lot changed that day, not just for the nation but for people’s personal lives. “It was probably one of the most significant changes I’ve witnessed,” he said. “People were wanting to find their families, check with them, make sure they were okay.” Mauriceville resident Tena English said that she was at work at Golden Triangle Telephone Directory in Beaumont when she and her colleagues heard the news. “The phones started ringing and people started calling in,” she said. “We didn’t have a TV so one of my co-workers went home and got one to bring up there.” English said that she remembers feeling terrified as she watched the events unfold. “There was a church next door to our office and we noticed that people were going there in the middle of the day so we went across to it,” she said. “Even with the number of people, it was total silence in that place.

“I’ll never forget it as long as I live.” Pearl Burgess, 90, poet laureate in Orange said “I was at home. The television was on and it came on. I liked to have dropped dead. I got on the phone and started calling everybody. I said, ‘The terrorists have struck.’ I said, ‘What we should do is pray for everybody, so it won’t kill so many people’. I knew it was going to be [horrific.] We better be careful from then, now and the future. It’s coming. You know it is. “That day I remember when it was on television. I looked at the airplanes and saw that other airplane when it fell and that man said, ‘It’s going down and I love you, don’t forget I love you.” He was talking to his wife. I remember that. It was so vivid. It will always stay in your memory, it really will.” Brenda Ellender, of Bridge City, said “my mother was born on 9-11-29, I was on the telephone driving to my office wishing her a Happy Birthday and talking with her about our fun at her family party the previous weekend. “She told me it looked like something terrible had just happened in New York and I felt certain I could get explanations as soon as I reached my desk that would alleviate her deep concerns. Instead, my concerns increased as the reality of actual terrorist attacks on our American soil had to be realized. We were facing the horror of a national tragedy to the scale of Pearl Harbor or all new chapter of American History was opened and the world we had known would never be the same! “It is amazing now to hear so many stories told of close calls and near escapes such as transit officials being able to re-route even the subways that protected thousands of more people who would have been crushed under the towers. I was so proud of Americans that day and today with the inspiring reconstruction of the World Trade Center and beautiful Memorial site!” Kayla Veillon, a seventh grader at Bridge City Middle School, was in yearbook class when her teacher heard the news and turned on the television. “I wasn’t really sure what to think about the situation at the time partially due to just being young and also being shocked that something like that could actually happen in my own country,” Veillon said. “We watched for a few moments as the event unfolded WE REMEMBER PAGE 3A

St. Mary’s soup kitchen serves less fortunate Darla Daigle

For The Record

Some tales are bigger than one individual. Such is the case with the seven-days-a-week venture to get one decent meal to those less fortunate than the average. By that, average means, those who can take care of their own basic needs. Less fortunate means many things. For those who fall into that category it can mean homelessness or a job that keeps them on a pay scale where they cannot afford food. One group of people has recognized this and labored, many of them for a quarter of a century, to see that one need is taken care of. In Orange, six churches, work interactively to provide one noon meal each day of the week to those who are in need of it. “For many of these people we know this will be their only food until tomorrow,” emphasizes Glenda Lucia of St Mary church on 9th and Cherry Street, “We don’t ask that anyone show proof of their need. If they show up, they eat.” Glenda and her husband, Johnny, are the coordinators of the Wednesday meal that is served from their church’s facility. St. Mary has been part of this soup kitchen for 25 years. “We have four teams of different individuals that come and serve each Wednesday, and a fifth team for months that have five Wednesdays,” she continues. Glenda Lucia is quiet and quick to push away any glory for what is being accomplished through their efforts. For her it is about what needs to still be done. The food used in the program comes completely through donations and is not supported through church funding. That doesn’t mean members aren’t a large part of the donating process. “We have ladies who bake cakes or have had groups with large leftovers from an event that donate goods to us. We have two freezers and two refrigerators.” Volunteers get to know different patrons from week to week. They discover other needs they may have. “Two of our ladies discovered a man and his child desperately needed clothing. They went through their closets and gathered all they could and brought it. Sometimes we just set things out on the table and if any of them want it they will pick it up. We are not here to embarrass them, just to help.” Recently, Orange Savings Bank President, Stephen Lee, challenged his employees to find ways to give back to the community. They were to look for ongoing projects. “I basically told them to answer two things; how long will the impact of the project last and what will be it’s legacy?” With most of the co-workers being women, they decided to help the soup kitchen by baking cakes according to Jo Ann Gilbeaux, one of Lee’s employees. From that simple offering has grown a lasting and much more involved venture for not only the ladies of Orange Savings but the president and his wife, Jamie Lee, as well. Through this project “Gallons of Love” has been birthed. The term gallons is a reference to the size of industrial sized containers that the kitchen groups need to feed their 150 to 180 people for their one day. “It takes five gallons of green beans, sometimes more, for one meal,” adds Johnny Lucia, who prays over the meal with its recipients before service starts. The workers from Orange Savings also come and serve with a variety of other loyal regular volunteers. They are hoping other businesses will

follow their lead. “We are all just one bad paycheck away from being in the same boat,” one volunteer adds. “We don’t throw anything away,” Glenda follows up, “if we have anything left over that cannot be frozen or heated a second time, we will drop it off for tomorrow’s feeding at Mt. Olive Baptist, or First Presbyterian, who makes the meal on Tuesday may bring us something they had left.” They also get donations in the form of Walmart cards from Orange County Probation because the soup kitchen provides community service work for those who are working off fines they couldn’t afford to pay. Volunteers are there for many reasons. Only a handful of individuals are working off community service. Some have witnessed people trying to grab food from dumpsters, others want to pay back St. Mary volunteers who once fed them. Some just understand the need for volunteers such as Betty Harmon, former Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce president. Not all are physical bodies that come to serve. There are those who make food and send it from their home. DuPont recently started to collect change for donations. St. Mary volunteers are just one small group from a single church. “I don’t know how the other churches fund their operations,” Lucia admits, “but we all count on the goodness of people to give of their time or substance.” Restaurants closing have given their nonperishables. Project Graduation has donated leftovers. All it takes is creative thinking to realize anyone can make a difference. There are a hundred and one ways people can jump in to help. “We have had youth groups come and help, or make special gift stockings for our folks at Christmas. Food is not the only thing we need, but it’s like a ripple effect. You don’t really realize when you do this who it touches,” says Lucia. Locations and meal times are announced to people by word of mouth, none of it is advertised. To get connected with a program that is filling a great human need contact any of the following churches: Monday meals, Mount Sinai Baptist on Second Street; Tuesday and Friday, First Presbyterian on Green Avenue; Wednesday, St Mary Catholic Church on the corner of Cherry Street and 9th; Thursday, Mount Olive Baptist on West Park; Saturday, Salem Methodist on West John; and Sunday is Trinity Lutheran on 16th Street.

family fun, entertainment and a celebration of our area’s heritage,” said Paige Williams, chairwoman for the event. “It’s for a good cause. The waterfront park on Cow Bayou will benefit our area in so many ways.” Within the Community Center festival goers will find a silent auction, retailer demonstrations and a slide show of early Bridge City photographs and memorabilia. Entries are still being accepted for a children’s photogenic contest. Look for the Bridge City history coloring contest will be published in The Record newspapers next week. The Cow Bayou Swing Bridge is one of only two remaining center pivot swing bridges of it’s kind remaining in Texas. It was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. The Rainbow Bridge was listed to the N.R. in 1996. An estimated 3,000 people attended the 1941 dedication. The ribbon was cut by Miriam David, the daughter Jewel David the president of the Orange Chamber of Commerce. The Bengal Guards of Orange and the Red Hussars of Port Arthur, musical marching bands from the two high schools, marched towards the Cow Bayou Bridge from opposite directions and met in the center of the span for the ribbon cutting. The Rainbow Bridge (originally the Port Arthur-Orange Bridge) was completed in 1938. The following year construction began on the ‘Cow Bayou Bridge’, a swing bridge with an electric motor. Both bridges where marvels of American technology in the years leading into World War II, as they are today. The swing bridge at Cow Bayou was the final link in “HugThe-Coast Highway” between Corpus Christ and Orange-- the then new Texas-87. The swing bridge over Cow Bayou brought

about the consolidation of the Prairie View and Winfree school districts to become Bridge City I.S.D. The bridge was a routine part of life in early Bridge City. Near it, community, commerce and industry flourished to become the City of Bridge City in 1970. The waterfront park on Cow Bayou will become used for numerous recreational and educational activities. It would include a large gazebo, playgrounds, a broad boardwalk along the bulkhead, period style lighting throughout the park and along the bayou, covered picnic tables, walking trails, floral gardens and concessions. Boat docks and access to the park from the water is also included. The park will become the home of the new Gisela and Tony Houseman Nature and Heritage Center. The over 4,000 square foot facility will house the vast Tony and Gisela Houseman collection of art, photography, artifacts and wildlife trophies from around the world. The facility is intended to provide the children of Southeast Texas an opportunity to learn about conservation, wildlife and it’s natural habitat. An area of the new visitor’s center will be a museum for Bridge City history. Total cost for the entire project, including development, is still to be determined. The initial goal of the nonprofit is to raise $250,000 to complete the purchase of the land. The City of Bridge City will be the eventual property owner and maintain the park.

Thrift and Gift Shop joy their craft. The quilters at the Thrift and Gift Shop have been quilting for more years than they can remember. “We’ve been quilting since we’ve been open at 5th Street ,” said Barbara Miles. The quilters make quilts for the public and the shop. The quilts for the shop are raffle off or sold in the store. Sometimes, people will donate parts of the quilts that are made for the shop and sometimes they have to buy the pieces they need. “We take donations and put them together,” Miles said. Vendors also sell their quilts in the shop and the shop receives 20 percent of the sale. “This is just something for us to get together and do, said Miles. The shop is always looking for good quilters, but the ladies will teach those who are willing learn how to quilt. The quilts vary in price. The money made on the quilts and all the items in the shop go back into the shop. Each quilt takes a different amount of time to make. It depends on the size of the quilt and how many quilters show up. “You have to love it,” Stacy Russell explains. Some of the faithful quilters are, but cer-

The shop is a nonprofit store that sells good used clothing, craft items, books, glassware, primitives, pictures, small antique pieces and household items. The items sold in the store are donated by those in the community. “We take almost anything as long as it’s nice and clean,” said Mary Holland, shop volunteer. Many donate items that did not sell at their garage sales. The community is encouraged to donate such items, but the items must be brought to the store. Two faithful volunteers come each working day from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. to open the bargain room, which is located in another room in the old Salk School building. They handle the many donations that those in the community bring in. The Thrift and Gift will be welcomed in to the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon cutting Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 11 a.m.

From the Creaux’s Nest THE DROUGHT IS STILL FOR REAL We had high hopes that the storm Lee might just bring some needed rain to Texas, mostly a good amount to the South East Texas. According to Cox’s rain gauge some saw a couple of inches. The east side of Bridge City got 1.5 inches of slow rain. It was good for surface plants but didn’t help the trees. The north breeze has already evaporated all of it in three days. I had to water this morning. Texas is burning up. Our friends Les and Wanda Johnson left for a trip to Lake Charles Saturday and by Monday the country around Bastrop was on fire. Their daughter Rolanda, her children and animals had to evacuate their home near Smithville where over 500 homes have burned. They were having zero success with putting out the fire that was being fanned by high winds. *****The Pinehurst Senior Citizen’s Labor Day picnic was again a big success. Mayor T.W. Permenter and his crew were very happy feeding over 600 beautiful people. Our girl Penny should have award winners and other results. She said everyone wanted to talk about The Record. They love our paper. Those folks are our base. Our buddy, Lyndia Permenter, says T.W. can’t come home if he doesn’t have a Record newspaper on Wednesday. Robert’s did another good job cooking and serving. It was great to see the “Governor” of Pinehurst, Grady Johnson, the pride of Shelby County. I understand 90-year-old Mrs. Pearl was being hand fed watermelon. *****Well, it’s coming on a full moon, which usually changes things, sometimes good, a lot of time it brings out the bad. I’m looking for great changes to be on the way. I have to move on and get out as much as I can with the short time I have before deadline. Come along, I promise it won’t do you no harm. NEVER FORGET WHERE YOU WERE This week marks the 10th anniversary of 9-11-01. Most of us will remember where we were or what we were doing. It was a Tuesday morning. Back then we put the paper together on Monday night and it usually returned from the press between 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. On this Tuesday morning, we were sitting around watching an old black and white television set that Uncle Jim McKay had given back to Roy because some HMO help, looking after him, occasionally sat down to watch. Jim said that’s not what they were paid for. Jim didn’t pay but that didn’t matter. Anyway, we were watching the T.V. and visiting when Roy said, “Damn, a plane just hit a tall building.” Someone said, “That happens fairly often doesn’t it?” “This looks different, like dead aim, on purpose.” Roy said. By the time the second plane crashed into the other tower Dwayne Marsh had covered his face and was openly crying. We continued to witness what had become the first attack on our mainland. You know the rest of the story. For a little while, the country was united. President George w. Bush announced, “The people who did this will hear from us.” We attacked Afghanistan and 10 years later are still there. However, the road took a wrong turn and the Bush Administration invaded Iraq, a war of choice. We have paid dearly with loss of life, a war fought on the cuff, that future presidents will be paying for and criticized for not ending fast enough. On May 2nd, President Barack Obama cut off the “Head of the Snake” when he ordered Bin Laden killed. I believe, hopefully, that ends Al Qaeda. It should end our connection to the devil that ordered the attack on our country. I’m old enough to compare Pearl Harbor and 9-11. Each generation will give different meaning to the two historical events based on age and issues that concerned them. The most personal destruction to many of us happened Sept. 13, 2008, when Hurricane Ike brought its surge. The storm destroyed things that will never be replaced, material things and historical things also, all gone. We weren’t very smart; we could have saved more of historical value than we did. REMEMBERING THE SINGING BRAKEMAN James Charles “Jimmie” Rogers was born in Meridian, Mississippi on Sept. 8, 1897, 114 years ago. Jimmie recorded his last record on May 24, 1933. He died two days later on May 26. The Blue Yodeler, the Singing Brakeman to some, amazingly released 110 songs and sold 20 million records during the Great Depression and millions more since. I once owned all of them. A real treasure. Ike took ‘um. Jimmie’s mother died of Tuberculosis when he was only 5 years old; he died of the same disease at age 36. His first record was released in October of 1927. In just six years, Jimmie became the first rural artist to focus national attention on him and set the stage for all country artists to follow. If you’re ever near Meridian stop by his museum. The Jimmie Rogers stamp came out on May 24, 1972. It sold for 13 cents. Here is a sidebar: A guy many of us knew, a good Christian man, the late “Snuffy” Smith of Bridge City, father of Kenneth Smith, K-Dan owner, was born and raised in Meridian and was proud of it. Meridian, Miss., the birthplace of two great county boys. Maybe a radio station will play Jimmie’s music Sept. 8.

Bridge City’s Matt Bryant kicks for the Baylor Bears. *****Two Bridge City Cards, John Hoffpauir and Nicholas Watson, are freshmen at McNeese. *****Returning seniors for B.C. are quarterback Josh Sanders, center Dathan Juneau, and kicker Raun Bryant. In the backfield are #24, Nick Judice, #32, Wade Stone, #20, Jason Menard, #33, Kevin Beasley, #36, Steve Curl, #28, Daniel Kibodeaux and #38, Mathew Nguyen. Defensive backs Scott Cortis, Charlie Higginbotham and Shane Peveto combined for 156 tackles last year. The smallest school, in the toughest 4-A district, is considered one of the toughest on defense. Johnny Montagne, linebacker, compiled 62 tackles. On the other side is Jared Williams. The defensive front five have plenty of speed also. Dustin Dishon will line up at nose guard, Chad Brown at tackle. That’s some of the Bridge City team. We will be doing highlights of other area teams in the coming weeks. *****Beth Dugas died last Friday, Aug. 28 at 3 a.m. She was 67 years old. She left husband Louis, three sons, two daughters, eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. *****Margaret Bell, wife of Bill Bell and mother of our friend Jerry Wayne Bell, died over the weekend.

They repeated with best recording “Black Top, the Gravel Road.” They also were named Cajun Band of the Year. Callier is a native of the Cove, in Orange County. (Editor’s note: Jackie and his Cajun Cousins still play their great music and can often be heard and danced to at Larry’s French Market in Groves.) 38 Years Ago-1973 Jim Crossland coaches the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears.

(Editor’s note: That was quite a crew. I didn’t realize they were all in the same class. I believe 1973 might have been one of Crossland’s best years at LC-M. We lost track of Jim. He sold his two car dealerships in Oklahoma a few years ago and disappeared. If anyone has contact with him please let us know.)*****Judy Savoy celebrated her birthday Aug. 29, 1973. (Editor’s note: Judy was an only child and both of her parents have died. The last we heard she was still in Houston. If she sees this on our web, belated happy birthday.) 53 Years Ago-1958 James A.

She and Paul were in from Nashville to say goodbye to her granddaughter who is moving to Japan. *****Nova Dee Strickland and daughter, Tonya Barnwall, stopped by also.

She will soon have an interesting story about how her family and her sibling’s family will return to her late dad, Jerry Strickland’s, boyhood home and what brings them there. *****We were so sorry to learn about the death of Ethel Adelle Hargis, age 95. Ms. Ethel passed away Sept. 3; service was Tuesday, Sept. 6. We had known Ethel many years and knew about her long involvement with music and wondered why her obit didn’t mention it. A side note: Fifty years ago folks said she had the most beautiful legs in the south. Betty Grable style. May this beautiful lady rest in peace. *****We also extend condolences to the family of Juanita LeDoux Ellis. She passed away Monday at home. Funeral will be at 10 a.m., Thursday. Please see obit.*****Special folks we know celebrating birthdays. There are not enough words to describe Dr. Howard Williams, dedication to serving mankind as a medical doctor and preserving so much of our rich history. Many generations to come will be thankful for the his-

torical records he gathered and published. Dr. Williams celebrates his 86th birthday Friday, Sept. 9. Best wishes Doc.***No doubt one of the state’s prettiest jailers is right here in Orange County working for Sheriff Keith Merritt. Happy birthday, Sept. 9, to Sharon Gearheart, one of the nicest folks we know. She looks ten years younger than her 58 years. ***One of our bestest buddies, Millard “Neighbor” Cox, turn 87 on Sept. 9. He’s a happy camper right now. Ms. Ginny is back from Oklahoma after a month away. That’s enough birthday present for him. ***I understand Penny and Gerald LeLeux’s little girl Janet is a year older Sept. 9. Gerald celebrated the 7th. Maybe they will get together in Austin. ***Next Tuesday, Sept. 13, Jenna Dunn Balou celebrates her birthday.

This country needs jobs no matter how much money must be borrowed to create them. Saving the auto industry has proven good business investments. Thursday, President Obama will reveal how jobs can be created for the American families who are suffering. The Tea Party will again be the obstructionist. Jobs and the good of our economy is not their objective, taking over the government is and you know they what stand for. All those who say “No” to everything that helps the poor and middle class should be called out by name and blamed for stopping any idea that will help job growth. They created the doubling of the national debt so if it has to wait, so be it. We need jobs now. The present administration didn’t create the recession and loss of all those jobs. Those who ruined our economy should be forced into doing what is right, help rebuild what over eight years, they tore down. There is no one else to blame for the situation we’re in. Why can’t Americans see that. CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS On Sept. 7, Shannon Elizabeth will be 38; Devon Sawa, 33 and Evan Rachel Wood, 24. ***Brooke Burke will be 40 on Sept. 8; David Arquette, 40; Pink, 32 and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, 30. ***On Sept. 9, Michael Keaton will be 60, Hugh Grant, 51; Adam Sandler, 45; Macy Gray, 41 and Michael Buble’, 36. ***Colin Firth will be 51, Sept. 10; Guy Ritchie, 43 and Ryan Phillippe, 37. ***On Sept. 11, Roxann Dawson will be 47; Harry Connick, Jr. 44 and Ludacris, 34. ***George Jones will be 80 on Sept. 12; Jessica Seinfeld, 40; Jason Statham, 39; Ruben Studdard, 33; Yao Ming, 31; Jennifer Hudson, 30 and Emmy Rossum, 25. CAJUN STORY OF THE WEEK Tee-Not Comeaux done won a bass boat in a $1 raffle drawing. Tee-Not could take da bass boat or $500 in cash. He wanted dat boat him, so he gets a neighbor to drag da rig home for him. His poor mama, Agnes, wat raised Tee-Not by herself since his poppa, Sostan, found out Tee-Not was going to be a little slow him, was mad her. She axe, “Wat da hell you gonna do wit dat boat Tee-Not, dere ain’t no water deep enough to float dat boat for miles?” Tee-Not say, “I won dat boat me and I’m gonna keep it. I always want a boat.” Wen Rufus Thibeaux come calling on Ms. Agnes, he axe, “Where’s Tee-Not?” Ms. Agnes say, “Mais, dat boy is out dere in his new bass boat,” as she points to da open field behind da house. Rufus him, who also is a few marbles short, sees TeeNot sitting in a bass boat with a fishing rod in his hand. He yells out, “Tee-Not, wat da hell you doin hanh?” Tee-Not answer, “Wat da hell, it looks like I’m doing? Can’t you see I’m fisin.” Sostan him, yells back. “Tee-Not, it’s people like you dat gives Cajuns a bad name, making everybody tink we are stupid. If I could swim me, I’d come out dere and kick your stupid Cajun ass..” C’EST TOUT The MDA Telethon raised $61.5 million in six hours without Jerry Lewis compared to Jerry’s 18-hour show. The 46th annual benefit raised $2.6 million more than last year. *****Opponents of the new GOP congressional redistricting plan in Texas go before a three-court panel in San Antonio. The plan, signed by Gov. Rick Perry, is designed to expand the GOP’s 23-9 majority of districts in Texas. They must want them all. The map splits the Austin area into five districts, denying the most democratic part of the state a single seat, making it impossible for democrat Lloyd Doggett to get re-elected. Eightyeight percent of the state’s growth was Hispanic, yet not one Hispanic district created, that’s super gerrymandering. If someone tells you we don’t want to cherry pick or mismanage, believe just the opposite. Like when someone says, “I wouldn’t lie to you,” look out, here comes the whopper. Of course it’s micromanaging. You’re not surprised are you? *****Our friends at Trinity Baptist Church will celebrate their first anniversary and will also honor 9/11 first responders. Our longtime buddy Rusty Walton is the pastor. We have known our favorite preacher since he was a young, good looking red head that told a good story. I bet he still does. *****The United States citizens ain’t very happy with any of our leadership. Only 46 percent approve of the job President Obama is doing. On the other hand, the Tea Party is frustrating the will of the people. Eighty-two percent of Americans disapprove of the do-nothing congress. Only 13 percent approve of the job they have done since taking over congress. They site no accomplishments in an ABC poll. *****I understand Luigi’s Italian Restaurant, on the Circle in Orange, serves up some good, fresh Italian food. Best in the area I’m told. I must go try it. Tell um’ we sent you. *****Well, I’ve about done all the damage I have time for. Thanks for your time. Read us cover to cover and please shop our family of advertisers. Take care and God bless.

State Farm to Lower Auto Rates in Orange County 94% of Orange customers to see auto rate decrease Staff Report

For The Record

State Farm Insurance recently submitted a rate filing to the Texas Department of Insurance that will result in a 4% rate decrease on average for its auto insurance customers in Orange County. The new rates will become effective for new customers on October 3rd and will begin upon renewal for existing customers after that date. “When you couple this rate

decrease with all of the available discounts we offer to policyholders, then Orange residents can clearly see that it’s a great time to have State Farm auto insurance,” said Orange State Farm Agent Heather Montagne. Orange County customers are getting the lower rates because of a better-than-expected claims experience in the area recently. The Orange County decrease is part of a larger rate adjustment by State Farm that will result in a net 0% rate change statewide for

all Texas policyholders combined. Changes to individual premiums will vary based on a number of factors, such as vehicle use, driving record and vehicle type. Customers are encouraged to contact their State Farm agents for information about how they will be personally affected. Here is information about State Farm discounts and tips to save on auto insurance. For more information, go to

Pizza is among the most popular foods for adults and children alike. Since it was first enjoyed hundreds of years ago, billions of slices of pizza have been eaten worldwide. Americans alone eat approximately 350 slices per second. While popular toppings in North America include pepperoni, mushrooms and sausage, in countries like India, pickled ginger and minced mutton are eaten on pizza. In Japan, squid and Mayo Jaga are common. However pizza is enjoyed, it’s one of the few foods that transcends generations. It can be both gourmet fare and quick finger food depending on the venue. Furthermore, pizza can be made and enjoyed at home. One of the secrets of good pizza is the dough. While some people shy away from yeast doughs at home, with a little know-how home chefs can begin making pizza just like the professionals. Aspiring pizza pros or just people who love their pizza can try their hands at this recipe for delicious pizza dough, which can be customized with top-

pings and flavors as desired. Easy Pizza Dough Milk replaces water in this recipe to add flavor to the dough. If milk isn’t available, substitute with water. 4 cups bread or all-purpose white flour 11/4 cups lukewarm milk 21/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup additional milk 1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Prepare the dough “starter.” In a large liquid measuring cup, add the 11/4 cups warm milk, 1 teaspoon sugar and the yeast. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes. Allow the starter to foam up, which is called proofing. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour and make a well in the center of the flour. Add the salt. Mix to combine well. Mix the starter with the remaining milk, olive oil and the flour in the mixing bowl until combined and a little sticky. Either turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead by hand for 8 minutes to get a smooth, elastic, rubbery dough ball, or use a stand mixer with a dough hook to knead. Put the kneaded dough in

a bowl and drizzle with some olive oil. Cover the dough with a damp towel or plastic wrap. Allow to rise around an hour, or until it doubles in size. The rate of rising will depend on the temperature in the house and the potency of the yeast. Sprinkle cornmeal on the

Pumpkin facts for our upcoming Fall Staff Report

For The Record

Pumpkins are a common sight come around Halloween. This fruit of the fall is often used in decorating the interior and exterior of homes, but can be an integral component of cooking and baking as well. Little thought is given to pumpkins and their makeup. But pumpkin afficionados who want to know more about these delicious gourds can dig into the following facts. Pumpkins are a member of the squash family that grow on long vines close to the ground.

Before pumpkin fruit grows, brightly colored flowers will form and then turn into pumpkins. Pumpkins adapt to many climates and are grown on all of the continents except Antarctica. In colonial times, settlers and natives alike relied on pumpkin as a staple of their diets. The British saw the possibilities of pumpkins as a food source and brought seeds back to Europe to enjoy as well. Pumpkins are comprised of several parts. The pumpkin is covered in a skin that surrounds the pulp, or the meaty part of the pumpkin. The stem is at the top of the pumpkin

and connects to the vine. Tendrils are thin pieces of vine that tether the pumpkin to the ground to protect it from the wind and weather. The inside of the pumpkin is known as the cavity and can contain seeds and fibrous strands. The bottom of the pumpkin is known as the blossom end because that’s where the flower started before the pumpkin formed. Most varieties of pumpkins are edible, but some taste better than others. Once pumpkins turn orange they can be eaten. People bake the meat into pies, soups and stews. It can also be used in breads and cakes. Pumpkin puree can replace the oil in cake recipes much in the same way applesauce can. Adding pumpkin to recipes provides a healthy way to increase nutritional value. There are many interesting pieces of trivia regard-

ing pumpkins. Here are some things to ponder. Pumpkins were once believed to eliminate freckles and were also used as a remedy for snake bites. In 2007, people in Boston earned the world record for the most lit pumpkins with 30,128 twinkling jack-o-lanterns. Thousands of people participate in pumpkin chucking, an event where air cannons propel pumpkins thousands of feet. Each year people compete to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest. On September 25, 2010, people in New Bremen, Ohio, broke their own record when they baked a 3,699 pound pumpkin, surpassing their prior record of 2,020 pounds. Pumpkins are a seasonal delight to many come the fall. But in addition to being delicious, they’re also interesting.

Mustangs battle Friendswood in overtime MUSTANG INSIDER MERI ELEN JACOBS FOR THE RECORD

Two losses by a total of two points on two two-point conversions is not something easy to swallow, especially for the WO-S Mustangs who are used to maybe giving up two losses the entire year. Although the 0-2 record might be a little deceiving, the Mustangs have not lain down and just given up. In fact, 17 points were scored in the fourth quarter by WO-S to put the Mustangs into an overtime situation against the Friendswood Mustangs. And even though

they put it all on the line, they were not able to keep Friendswood from scoring to win the game, 32-31. In fact, the big heartbreaker is that close to the same scenario happened last year against Friendswood, when WO-S was beaten in the last minute of the game, 35-34. Senior Britton Lindsey led the ground game, posting 150 yards on 27 carries along with two rushing touchdowns, one that went 61 yards. Junior Jimmy Salter accounted for 215 yards passing with his favorite target of the night, senior Larry Sonnier catching 8 for 104 yards. Penalties and turnovers plagued

both sides all night and both punters were probably worn out after trading punts several times. The defense had a tough night holding Friendswoods’ Johnathon Johnson, who carried the ball 22 times for 182 yards. Kicker Jerquis Beasley had a 40 yard field goal and was 4-4 on PATs. But the Mustang players, as well as the coaches, know that it’s time to learn from the past and focus on the future… Next up, Jasper. The Bulldogs, who have always given the Mustangs a tough fight are currently 1-1 and will face the MUSTANGS PAGE 2B

Bobcats fall to Buna host Woodville Friday MARK WALLES FOR THE RECORD

The Orangefield Bobcats, 1-1 look to rebound this week after their loss to the Buna Cougars this past week in Buna’s season opener. Orangefield will be facing the 1-1 Woodville Eagles Friday night, 7:00 P.M. at F.L. McClain in Orangefield. The Eagles enter the contest fresh off of a win over the Shepherd Pirates 32-19. Orangefield’s offense was finding it’s rhythm in the second half of last weeks game yet came up short after an interception by Buna’s Dustin Fraser with ten seconds left in the game to stop the Bobcats rally. Buna scored first with a Lynn Williams 26 yard run with Williams kicking the point after for a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Orangefield answered in the second quarter with an impressive 36 yard run by Ty Johnson. Curt Nelson kicked the extra point to tie the score at 7. Buna kept up their attack, scoring their second touchdown of the night in the second quarter with a nineteen yard recepBOBCATS PAGE 3B

Bobcats take on Woodville From Page 1

by Williams from Kolton Clark to give the Cougars a 13-7 halftime lead. Buna scored again in the third with a Williams 6 yard run to extend their lead to 21-7. The Bobcats fought to the end, scoring their second touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter with 8:06 left on the clock. After a long drive Justin Bradley scored the touchdown and with Nelson’s kick brought the score 21-14. Orangefield was driving the ball at the end of the game looking for the final score but Buna intercepted in the end zone with ten seconds left to run out the clock giving Buna the win with a final score of 21-14.


The Cardinals fell to 1-1 in the young season after a wet and windy night in Vidor. The Vidor Pirates used 242 yards of total offense to take down the Cardinals, 21-6, with 219 of those yards on the ground. The Cardinals will try and bounce back this Friday as they host the Kelly Bulldogs in their home opener. The Pirates scored on their first two possessions in the first quarter to take a 14-0 lead. With 3:50 left in the second quarter, the Cardinals inched back in the game with a eight yard run by quarterback Matt Menard. With a bad snap on the point after, the Cardinals cut into the lead 14-6, which was the score when the teams headed into the locker room for the break. The Cardinals had their chances in the second half. Adrian Schubarth had a nice return on the opening kickoff of the second half, but the drive stalled and ended in a punt. On Vidor’s first possession of the second half, Josh Henry recovered a fumble to give the Cardinals back the ball. The Cardinals marched down the field, and Menard scored from twelve yards out, only to see it come back because of a holding call. That drive went over on downs at the eighteen yard line. Vidor then took over and put together an 82 yard scoring drive to take a 21-6 lead. Mitchel Hubbard then had another nice kickoff return for the Cardinals, but that drive also went back to Vidor on downs. In the fourth quarter Cameron Coulter jumped on a Vidor fumble to give the Cardinals another chance, his second recovery in two games, but in the wet and windy weather, the Cardinals could not get anything going. Vidor, with their effective running offense, ran out the clock out for a 21-6 victory. Hunter Clark led the Cardinals in rushing with 46 yards on eight carries. Cameron Dishon and Tyler Roberts both had 15 yards rushing, Dishon with nine carries and Roberts with one. Menard had a tough night with eighteen carries for -17 yards. Menard had 46 yards passing on thirteen attempts and one interception. Dishon had one pass attempt for 4 yards. Roberts led in the receiving yards with three catches for 20 yards. Both Dishon and Tanner Cervenka had one catch for 13 yards, and Keaton Langston had a catch for 4 yards. Come on out and back the Cardinalsin their home opener Friday, game time is slated for 7:30 PM. The weather did not keep the cheerleaders, band, or Strutters away. The cheerleaders toughed it out all night long, while the band was able to stay until after halftime. No halftime show at the game because of the weather, but it was still good to hear them play, and how about those STRUTTERS?

This should be the Houston Texans’ big year KAZ’S KORNER JOE KAZMAR FOR THE RECORD

The Houston Texans will find out in a few days if hiring Wade Phillips as their defensive coordinator will fill the missing link that has prevented them from reaching the playoffs since the franchise was added to the National Football League nearly a decade ago. The team would be much more ready to start the 2011 season against the Indianapolis Colts if it weren’t for the 4 ½-month work stoppage when the owners locked out the players and their coaches. But if the preseason exhibition games are any indication of things to come, it appears the Texans are ready to take that giant step that separates the real teams from the also-rans—the post-season playoffs. And what the Texans have going for them is the fact that in the first season the last four times that Phillips has been hired as defensive coordinator, he has helped guide a losing team to the playoffs. Houston qualifies for this situation by finishing the 2010 season 6-10. This task won’t be an easy one for Phillips, who has been in the business for 35 years, to shape up a defense that finished last season 30th in total defense and dead last against the pass. As for the “other” Lone Star State NFL franchise, it appears the Dallas Cowboys still have quite a few question marks, with boisterous new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan leading the parade. The Pokes also are trying to rebound from a 6-10 finish last season. They should be a bit better offensively with Tony Romo healthy again, but the Dallas defense is a far cry from the Doomsday Defense of past decades. And Orange County’s two shining stars in the NFL—Seattle Seahawks second-year starting free safety Earl Thomas and Atlanta Falcons’ place-kicker Matt Bryant, who’s starting his 10th season in the NFL—are both expected to have big years for their respective teams. This week’s edition of ESPN The Magazine lauds Thomas. “Seattle gave its talented rookie a ton of freedom to roam last year. Thomas used it wisely, ball-hawking (five interceptions) and hunting down runners (76 tackles). He was one of only six safeties to notch at least 60 stops and five INTs. Scary to think what he’ll do once he actually gets the hang of things.” The 2011 NFL season gets cranked up tomorrow (Thurs.) when the former world champion New Orleans Saints visits Lambeau Field to meet the Green Bay Packers, last year’s world champs. Without further adieu, this Korner will take a look at how we feel this NFL season will fare: AMERICAN FOOTBALL CONFERENCE South Division With the status of Peyton Manning’s health

still a big question mark, his Indianapolis Colts, which generally lock up this division, may have to step aside for our Houston Texans. Although ESPN The Magazine and The Sporting News don’t agree with us and have the Colts on top and the Texans second, we’re giving it a “home field decision.” 1. Houston 2. Indianapolis 3. Tennessee 4. Jacksonville. North Division Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens should battle for this division crown throughout the entire 2011 season. In fact, the competition begins Sunday when these two teams lock horns in Baltimore. 1. Pittsburgh 2. Baltimore 3. Cleveland 4. Cincinnati. East Division Bill Belichick rules this division as long as his superb quarterback Tom Brady remains healthy. The Jets are always a threat, losing in the AFC championship game the last two years. Perhaps the third time will be the charm when Head Coach Rex Ryan predicts a Super Bowl championship for his crew. 1. New England 2. NY Jets 3. Miami 4.Buffalo. West Division The San Diego Chargers had the best stats in this division, but their 9-7 record wasn’t even good enough to earn a playoff berth. Kansas City won the division in 2010 and hasn’t gotten any worse. Oakland and Denver will again fight it out for the cellar. 1. Kansas City 2. San Diego 3. Denver 4. Oakland. NATIONAL FOOTBALL CONFERENCE East Division Our Dallas Cowboys should play third fiddle to both the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants in this talent-laden division. The Eagles are loaded thanks to an unreal free agent haul and if Michael Vick plays up to potential, Philly could go all the way. The Giants and Cowboys will have something to say about this, but are not nearly as strong as the Eagles. 1. Philadelphia 2. New York 3. Dallas 4. Washington. North Division The Pack is back with a deeper, healthier roster. Their goal to repeat as world champions isn’t that far-fetched. Dom Capers runs the most creative 3-4 pass defense in the league, but their rushing defense finished 28th in the NFL last season. The aging Chicago Bears won this division last year, with the Packers coming on as the wild card. The Bears won’t be so lucky this year. Detroit is coming on strong and the Vikings are kind of a mystery. 1. Green Bay 2. Detroit 3. Chicago 4. Minnesota. South Division The New Orleans Saints are determined to get back on top and they must first start with the division. With Reggie Bush gone, the backfield will be relatively new. Atlanta should have a better offense than in 2010, but the defense

Atlanta Falcons place-kicker Matt Bryant at Body Workz during a recent visit to Bridge City. RECORD PHOTO: Mark Dunn

might be worse than the one that killed them in the playoffs. Tampa Bay should play .500 ball while Carolina has a long way to go, despite having Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton at quarterback. 1. New Orleans 2. Atlanta 3. Tampa Bay 4. Carolina. West Division Although the Seattle Seahawks had some success in the playoffs last season, they’re still short on talent and are depending on new quarterback Tavaris Jackson to lead the offense, who has been around the NFL for several years but has started only a handful of games. The St. Louis Rams will go as quarterback Sam Bradford goes, and in this weak division, he should lead them to the title. 1. St. Louis 2. Seattle 3. San Francisco 4. Arizona.

Congrats are in order to former West Orange-Stark Mustang and Navarro College star running back DePauldrick Garrett who has taken his talent to the next level and in his first game at Lamar University set school records for touchdowns (4) and points (24) in a single game. The Cards opened the 2011 season Saturday night with a 58-0 rout over Texas College, an NAIA school. The Houston Astros have a real good shot at chalking up their 100th loss before Sept. 15. The Central Division-leading Milwaukee Brewers visited Minute Maid Park last weekend and really put some fattening on the Astros’ heads by sweeping Houston 8-2, 8-2 and 4-0. Their record going into Monday’s game at Pittsburgh stood at 47-93, with 22 games remaining.

KWICKIES…The results of the rain-shortened 52nd annual Labor Day Invitational Golf Tournament held last weekend at Sunset Grove Country Club in Orange are as follows: Professional Flight-- 1. Greg Sonnier 2. Corbin King 3. Matt Bryant 4. Jeff Cooper; Championship Flight—1. Hunter Cooper 2. Zane Caillier 3. Tom Toal; First Flight—1. Rick Keszeg 2. Ernie Dyer 3.

(Three-way tie) Willie Bednar, Cimron Campbell, Bob Hoepner.

JUST BETWEEN US…West Orange-Stark Mustangs’ new head coach Cornel Thompson must be feeling snake-bit about posting his first victory at the helm of the Mustangs. For the second week in a row the Mustangs were defeated on a two-point conversion at the end of the game. The first time Nederland got credited with a 21-20 victory when a game official, who was either biased or blind, ruled a successful two-point conversion when the Nederland player made a diving catch and then rolled across the goal line. Last Friday the ‘Stangs lost 32-31 to a good Friendswood team in the second overtime on a two-point conversion that was tipped by a Mustang defender right into the hands of a Friendswood receiver. In both cases the Mustangs’ opponents went for the victory instead of kicking the PAT for the tie.

Strong north winds empty marshes COLBURN-FISHING CAPT. DICKIE COLBURN

For The Record

Regardless of your plans for the holiday weekend, you still had to be excited about backto-back days of steady soaking rains.With the exception of a powerful north wind strong enough to blow a watermelon off the picnic table, Monday proved to be a slightly cooler return to the dry conditions that have plagued us all summer. . While there wasn’t much of a cooling effect with the blustery north wind, it did significantly lower the water level in the marshes surrounding Sabine Lake. At this point it is still difficult to tell what percentage of the shrimp population migrated into the bayous, but those that did not move found themselves stuck in the mud!

For obvious reasons, there was very little fishing pressure this weekend, but the two reports that I got were better than I would have expected. Shane Bourne and his girlfriend, Kaley, fished the drains off the Entergy Outfall from 8:00 until 3:00 on Saturday and finished the day with five slot reds, six trout, and ten flounder up to 21-inches long. “We saw the flounder jumping out of the water in one drain and just anchored up and started throwing at them, “said Shane.“We caught four reds and a trout before we ever caught the first flounder. I was throwing a chartreuse Kelly Wiggler with a piece of shrimp on it until Kaley started catching a flounder almost every cast on a Little Fishie.”

The Lit’l Fishie is one of those baits that worked so well in the past that we just stuck it in the tackle box for no good reason and forgot about it a long time ago. It is a Crème lure that is actually an earlier version of the newer Swim Baits with fins. They were throwing the 2.5inch model. “I don’t know how many reds and flounder we threw back before we used up all of our Lit’l Fishies,” added Shane, “but I know we put back at least 15 to 20 keeper flounder!”One thing is for certain…….Kaley either really likes Shane or really likes to fish to sit in a boat in that weather all day long! Jason Theriot had much the same experience with the flounder early Saturday morning, but just couldn’t make them bite.They fished

in Black’s Bayou and according to Jason, “just caught the heck out of redfish all morning long.”He said they were throwing spinnerbaits and a small Strike King crankbait in Sexy Shad until they, too, started seeing flounder striking on the surface around the cuts. “We tried everything including live bait and Gulp and only caught one keeper flounder,” said Theriot.“It was really frustrating. Sometimes there were three or four fish jumping in the same cut and we could not get them to bite.” He also added that they caught a lot of small trout on a beetle under a popping cork and that same crankbait. They left the dock in the rain and returned in the rain and I did not see the first sign of a raincoat in their aluminum boat. I also saw no girlfriends or Lit’l Fishies so that may have been why they did so poorly on the flounder!

Both of those reports support speculation that lots of bait moved out of the marsh this weekend. Cooler weather would make it even more enjoyable for the fishermen, but the more important benefit of the stiff north wind is the purging of the shallow back lakes. I will not be at all surprised to find the gulls finally working over shrimp in the open lake by the end of the week. Cooler night time temperatures should also help the catching as well. The summer long CCA S.T.A.R. tournament is officially a done deal and winners all across the state can finally exhale. With the exception of catching one of the first five tagged redfish, all other early leaders literally sweated out their potential winner on a daily basis all summer long. And, while it would be nice to win a fully rigged boat, motor and trailer, the kids have a


lot at stake as well. They may or may not worry about it that much, but with $20,000 to $50,000 scholarships hanging in the balance, their parents are a nervous wreck by the time labor Day rolls around. The one category that was most in danger of getting nipped at the finish line this year was the STAR KIDS flounder division. Dylan Gill brought a 3-pound 11-ounce fish to the official scales early on and it eventually held up for a $50,000 scholarship. You couldn’t even launch at many of the local landings Monday due to low water, but that shouldn’t be a problem by mid -week. It makes for a little longer ride to the lake, but the public launch on Simmons Drive is a great Plan B for launching anytime the water is all blown out of the bayous. It also has to be very low for the Hwy. 87 launch on Cow Bayou not to be an option as well.

Water fowl hunters get first opportunity OUTDOORS-WEEKLY CAPT. CHUCK UZZLE

For The Record

The long wait will finally be over Saturday morning as legions of water fowl hunters head to their favorite spot for the early teal season opener. Record high numbers of blue winged teal have many hunters excited at the prospect of a real “barn burner” of an opening weekend. Couple those high numbers with a timely break in the weather and one could see how this weekend shapes up really well for local hunters. Easily the biggest factor for a successful hunt has to be water, or lack of it. Many tried and true areas that have historically been hot spots are dried up or at least very close to being dried up. The opportunity to catch and retain some of the water tropical storm Lee was a big boost to many farmers and hunters who depend on rice fields for both their livelihoods. For the last couple of weeks the blue wings have been trickling into our area and along other parts of the coast. Good numbers of these fast flying little ducks have been reported around from the Katy prairie to Grand Chenier in Louisiana. The approaching full moon will do nothing but help increase those numbers as teal cover plenty of ground while migrating at night. It wouldn’t be out of the question to expect a big influx of new birds this week as several factors such as temperature, moon

phase, and weather appear to have all aligned in the water fowl hunter’s favor. Now before we just get too excited about opening morning there are still a few things you need to consider before you head out to your blind. First off you need to be certain you have all your license requirements fulfilled. Nothing takes the shine off a great day in the field like an unnecessary ticket and you can bet the game wardens will be patrolling, especially if you hunt any public areas so be prepared. Also take into consideration that it’s still warm and all the usual suspects such as alligators and snakes will be out in force. Please, by all means, be careful if you bring a dog because there is a high probability that an alligator will be somewhere near your area. The ultra dry summer we have had up to this point has shifted the populations of alligators into new areas causing many folks who never worried about them to become much more aware of their surroundings. The potential for an encounter with an alligator grows exponentially as you get closer to water and that includes rice fields, stock tanks, and just about anywhere else for that matter. Please take precautions and keep an eye out for your canine friends. With all the precautions taken care of and the proper li-

cense requirements met, getting down to the business of actually hunting should be easy. Don’t make your approach too complicated; a few dozen decoys and some adequate cover will put you in good shape. Don’t spend too much time worrying about the set up; instead put that energy and effort into scouting. If the birds are there then you have all but won the battle since teal aren’t real particular. There is nothing like having a large flock dive bomb into a spread of decoys with reckless abandon, it’s what keeps us coming back every year.

Land Stewardship Workshop for Women Staff Report For The Record Women of the Land is a land stewardship training program designed specifically for women landowners, land managers, hunters, and wildlife enthusiasts. This workshop is designed to encourage women to become active land managers, develop and hone their management skills, and network with women of similar interests. The Texas Wildlife Association (TWA), in partnership with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and with support from the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, will host this event. The 2011 Women of the Land workshop will be held at the Warren Ranch near Santa

Anna, Texas, September 23 – 25. The cost is $160 for TWA members and $200 for nonmembers. The registration fee covers meals, lodging, and materials. Non-members will receive a one-year membership to the Texas Wildlife Association. Registration is limited to 30 participants. Topics to be discussed include habitat, land ethics, soils and hydrology, plant identification, wildlife identification and biology, pond management, habitat restoration, prescribed burning, income diversification, and long term planning. Instructors will be wildlife and natural resource professionals from the private sector, Texas Wildlife Association, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, Texas

AgriLife Extension, and other organizations. If you or someone you know is interested in the Women of the Land program, please visit the Texas Wildlife Association website at http://www. or contact Courtney Brittain at 800-TEXWILD, 210-826-2904, or Texas Wildlife Association - The Texas Wildlife Association is a statewide organization that is an active advocate in the state and national political arenas for wildlife and natural resource conservation. Education of our young people and our growing urban populations, increasingly disconnected from the land, is critical to understanding our natural resources and maintaining rural lifestyles.

$10,000 College Scholarships Available: Deadline Sept. 14 Staff Report For The Record

The Texas Wildlife Association Foundation (TWAF) and the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. (SALE) have joined forces to offer five $10,000 Natural Resource-Excellence in Education Scholarships in the fall of 2011. The scholarships will be awarded to five freshmen at Texas universities who are majoring in natural resource related field such as agricultural science, wildlife science, forestry, range science, or similar majors. Completed applications must be postmarked by Sept. 14 and are available at www. “As our population has grown, the strain on our

natural resources has grown proportionately,” said TWAF Trustee Charles Davidson. “Our future depends on our ability to manage our natural resources wisely, balancing the needs of man and nature. It just makes sense to identify our future leaders and support them while they are getting their educations. We all will benefit from their expertise in the years to come.” In past years the organizations provided four $10,000 statewide awards, but are now offering five statewide awards. The program was expanded because of the overwhelming response. To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must be: • A Texas resident; • A graduate of a Texas high school; • Enrolled in a Texas ac-

credited college or university with a natural resource/agricultural degree program; • Classified as a “Freshman” or in first year after high school in the accredited program; • Majoring in a natural resource related field such as agricultural science, wildlife science, forestry, range science, etc.; • A citizen of the United States and provide a valid social security number if chosen Students must also maintain 12 hours per semester and a minimum 2.0 GPA per semester and 2.5 cumulative GPA. The scholarships are awarded based on overall quality and on essay responses to a series of natural resource questions.

Entergy Texas Crews head east to restore power knocked out by Hurricane Irene Staff Report For The Record Hurricane Irene has left millions without power on the East Coast and now Entergy Texas, Inc. will be part of an Entergy Corp. effort that’s sending storm-seasoned crews

of workers to help in the massive restoration effort. A total of 78 Texas personnel including contract and company lineman, plus support staff, will assist in restoring power in the area near Atlantic City, N.J. Crews sent today by Entergy Texas included 38 line workers and support personnel. They will join another

40 contract workers and support personnel sent to Florida last week when it appeared Hurricane Irene was heading for the Sunshine State. Those workers were redirected after the storm turned toward the East Coast. Workers from Texas are part of a nearly 600-personnel contingent from Entergy’s four-state service area. Crews include tool workers, and personnel for a number of support functions such as safety and vegetation. They will be assisting Pepco Holdings, Inc. “We consider it a privilege and honor to use our storm restoration experience to help restore power to the East Coast after the damage caused by Irene,” said Shawn Corkran, director, Entergy Texas trans-

mission and distribution. “In recent years, as our own service territory has been buffeted by some of the worst storms in this country’s history, we have received assistance from hundreds of other utility companies. Now it’s our turn to help them.” Corkran added that this trip is one of the farthest Texas crews have made in recent times. Entergy’s utility companies participate in mutual assistance agreements with utility companies across the country as well as within the Entergy family. In fact, Pepco Holdings, Inc. sent utility workers to help Entergy restore service following hurricanes Katrina and Rita. When Entergy companies need assistance after storms,

restoration workers are sent to help safely restore power to customers. The Texas crews heading to the East Coast area were drawn from work groups across the state, leaving enough personnel in Texas to manage routine day-to-day work. Corkran reminded workers to stay safe and noted that it is “better to give than to receive” when it comes to hurricane restoration. He also asked for customer patience and understanding should restoration work need to take place in Southeast Texas. It may take longer than usual because fewer workers are in place. Entergy’s record of restoring power after major storms has earned the company the Edison Electric Institute’s Emer-

Trinity Baptist Church first anniversary, 9-11 service Staff Report For The Record Sunday, Sept. 11 will mark the first anniversary of the Trinity Baptist Church of Orange. The first Anniversary and 9-11 Memorial Service will honor the church members and friends who have worked to make this first year a tremendous success. Those lost 10 years ago during the 9-11 tragedy will be remembered. The church will host as honored guest first responders from various agencies in the Orange Area. First responders are always available to protect the citizens of the Orange Area 24 hours a day. Dr. Charles (Rusty) Walton will deliver the message during this special service. The theme of the message will be “Honoring our past and claiming our future.” Dr. Walton’s approach

to leadership has been to develop a relationship with the people of the congregation as he taught and preached God’s word. He is quoted by Dr. Paul Powell in the book, A Digest for Church Renewal, as saying, “We cannot lead people unless we love people”. This statement summarizes the pastoral heart of Dr. Walton. He stated, “God has done some wonderful things at Trinity Baptist Church this past year. I don’t know of a better church with more loving members in Orange County.” The church, formally the longtime home of the Park Avenue Methodist Church is located at 1408 W. Park Ave. at 14th Street. Before the Inaugural Service one year ago, the historic church, underwent a facelift to prepare for the event. Upon entering the church, the open foyer serves

as a welcome area for members and guest to visit before church services. A vestibule invites members and guest into the beautiful sanctuary featuring stained glass windows, high ceiling and warm lovely wood. Special music for the Sept. 11 Service will be provided by the Trinity Baptist Choir under the direction of Dan Cruse. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate this great occasion. Sunday School will be at 9:45 a.m. in the Education Building and the Sunday Worship Service will start at 11 a.m. A luncheon for the members and their guest will be held at 12:20 p.m. following the service at the Sunset Grove County Club. Reservations are required. The first responders will be honored guest at the luncheon. Sunday, April 10, 2012,

It was perfect weather for the Labor Day Picnic

Penny LeLeux For The Record

the Pinehurst Pentecostal Church for assisting in serving at the picnic.

It was a beautiful day Monday, after the much needed rains from Lee stopped on Sunday and the cool front pushed through. It left clear skies and temperatures 20 degrees cooler then previous weeks. Seniors came out in droves for the annual Labor Day Picnic in Pinehurst. “This is our 13th Senior Citizens’ Picnic and every year except last we’ve had 500 or 600 here,” said Pinehurst Mayor T.W. Permenter. (Editor’s note: It was raining last year shutting the band and picnic down early. The rain also caused lower overall attendance.) “We’ve got 643 according to the paperwork. People are still coming. We’ve quit registering, but people are still coming to eat,” he said around 12:30 p.m., Monday. Robert’s Meat Market once again supplied the meal. “It’s great! Wonderful crowd, the weather is beautiful and glad everybody is here,” said Permenter. There appeared to be more dancers on the floor than previ-

ous years, twirling to the sounds of B.B. and Company featuring Britt Godwin and Bubba Moore. “Everybody loves Britt Godwin, he plays a little bit of all of it,” said Permenter. Even those that have difficulty walking were on the dance floor. Kitty Mouton, who lives in Victory Gardens, was on the dance floor with her footed walking stick. “I love it. I come every year and this is the only time I get to go dancing,” said Mouton. “I don’t go out to the clubs anymore.” Billy Trahan, Laurel Hemming and Malois Hinton should be kicking themselves for leaving the picnic early, missing out on the top door prizes. Happily claiming them in their stead were three lucky citizens. Mary Bickey won the rocking chair supplied by the City of Pinehurst and Robert’s Meat Market. Vonnie Plunkett won the second rocking chair, supplied by Welch’s Furniture. The big screen TV was won by Mabel Durio. It was donated by Orange Savings Bank and the Sears store in Pinehurst. Some of the other door prizes were donated by Sears, Orange Baptist Hospital, the Pinehurst Volunteer Fire Department, Larry’s Barber Shop, and Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, to name a few. Permenter wanted to thank the Little Cypress Lions club and
