The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce Roast will honor none other than Ms. Gilsela Houseman, owner of Tony Houseman Homes and Houseman Companies. The roast will be held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Bridge City Community Center. Chairwoman Adrienne Coletti said “We’ve never had a female roaster before. I just decided it was time to have professional business woman.” The roast, held every two years, will not only provide an evening of laughs but also provides funding to the Chamber, which “helps benefit all of our local businesses,” Coletti said. “So far we’ve raised over $10,000 and that’s not even including the silent auction we will be hosting,” Coletti said. “We have been in contact with an auction house and we have

I’m going to be proud to roast her.” Harmon and Houseman have been close friends ever since Houseman moved to Orange, over 20 years ago. Harmon explained she has to be careful what she says during the roast because turn about is fair play.

“I was so honored that [Gisela] asked me to this, I had all my preparations made as to what I was going to say and she cleverly comes back and says ‘remember, I have the last word.’ She holds the upper hand.” Houseman is well known throughout the community

not only for her and her late husband’s business, but also for her philanthropic work in Southeast Texas. Born in Hamburg, Germany Houseman became a U.S. resident in 1956. Before moving to Southeast Texas in GISELA HOUSEMAN PAGE 2A

Court approves new hours for veterans service Penny Leleux

For The Record

Commissioners Monday gave F.E. “Gene” Smith, the new veterans’ service officer authorization to change work hours as needed to four 10 hour days a week. Smith wants to extend the hours the office is open to service veterans without requiring overtime. “The veterans’ service office is right now open 8-5,” said Smith. “We don’t feel like we’re providing service for all the vets. For the people who are working and paying the bills, we’d like to extend our hours from 7-5:30 with flexibility to, by appointment, work outside of that hour too, without involving overtime.” Once Smith assured the court that he or the assistant service officer would always be there and the office was still going to be open Monday

through Friday, the court passed the measure unanimously. “I will say this,” said Orange County SMITH Judge Carl Thibodeaux. “After we made the changes [at the veterans service office] the concerns and issues with the veterans’ office has just totally dropped off the radar. Every now and then there may be one or two come in and basically the veterans’ office has been absolutely correct in their handling of the situation. I commend you and your office.” One of the main items on each week’s agenda has been the county burn ban. Monday commissioners removed the ban for a minimum of a week. “By no means was it a drought breaker,” said Jeff Kelley of the recent rain in Orange County. He did determine it was enough to lift the burn ban briefly. Some areas of Orange County got three inches of rain, while some only received half an inch. Kelley said the average rainfall in the county was a little over an inch. The burn ban signs will be picked up and will be replaced when the ban resumes. Doug Manning, the county attorney presented the court with the possibility of cutting and baling hay at the closed landfill site. Les Anderson, the county engineer had been approached with the idea by William Hamilton. “TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) says it would not violate any of their rules as long as it does not penetrate the cap,” said Manning. Anderson said the cap in some areas of the landfill is only two feet deep. There is up to another foot of wood chips on top of the cap from trees that fell during Hurricane Rita. “Normally, when anything COUNTY BUSINESS PAGE 2A

Judge Dunn asked his father to start writing down his memories so future generations may know the rich history of this area. Wilson “King” Dunn was born (and raised) in Mauriceville in 1918. He graduated from Mauriceville High School in 1935. He was married for Eloide Linscomb Dunn for 72 years and he retired from the Postal Service after serving as Mauriceville Postmaster for 35 years. He was active in the Mauriceville Community for all of his adult life - Mauriceville School Board, Orange County Drainage District, Lions Club and Volunteer Firefighter. King is the father to six children and has numerous grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. Back in the early 1930s, the depression was still in ef-

fect and there was no money or jobs. A lot of families were turning to dairying to eke out a living because milk was in demand. The renewed interest in dairying also created a demand for high producing cows, so soon they started bringing them in truckloads. They were kept in a large corral near Beaumont so that the farmers could select and bid on the cows they liked. That’s when problems arose. Texas had ticks, lots of ticks, so many that they could almost cover a cows body. The local cows had grown up with ticks and even if the sapped their strength, they could tolerate it and survive. Not so with the newly arrived cows. These were fever ticks they were exposed to and they soon came down with tick fever, which was often fatal to high Wilson ‘King’ Dunn travels down memory road as he recalls his youth priced milkers. and the many days spent out at the dipping vat on his father’s land.

I said ‘sure, if I can help I’d be willing to make a fool of myself, or let others make a fool of me.’” While anyone would be nervous about their closest family and friends telling humorous stories in public, Houseman is ready for the action. “I don’t know what they’re going to tell,” Houseman said. “I don’t think I have any major skeletons in my closet. I think they will poke a lot of fun but then I get to turn around and poke fun at them.” Coletti said there are some tables and seats left for those interested in attending the roast.

If 18-wheelers were driving on the cap, Judge Carl Thibodeaux was worried the added weight could be enough to damage the cap. “You could put the stipulation that you off load off the cap,” said Commissioner Precinct 2 Owen Burton. “With the hay shortage we have in the area I think it would be good to help the farmers and cattlemen.” John Dubose, commission precinct 3 said that was a good point.

and told the court he had looked at the site and said he would load bales off the cap. The court gave Anderson and Manning permission to look into the matter further and to get written confirmation from TCEQ that the project would not violate any of their regulations. Judge Courtney Arkeen of the 128th District Court had submitted a request to enter into a contract with Westlaw online services for the law library. “It would cancel all the books and everything we’ve been getting for the judges and it would save the county $3,250 a year,” said Thibodeaux. “The nature in which judges and lawyers’ research case law and statutes has changed over the last 10 years,” said Manning, explaining the benefits to the commissioners. “When I went to law school we actually had to learn to use books and you physically

Last year over a hundred scarecrows were made and about the same number of scarecrows were expected this year, making Shangri La’s Scarecrow Festival one of the largest in Texas. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy walking through the gardens and seeing various scarecrows on display that were created by members of the community. “The Scarecrow Festival is a great way for families to welcome the fall season. This familyfriendly event is quickly becoming

a favorite and we hope to see everyone out taking a stroll through the gardens with the scarecrows,” Hoke said. “Because we encourage participants to make their scarecrows with recycled, repurposed or reused items, the scarecrow designs are very creative and reflect our mission of teaching children of all ages to Be Kind to Their World.” Shangri La is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sundays, noon - 5 p.m.

looked up laws in case books. That’s all online now and instead of looking through digests and then looking for the cases, you do a search query into a data base and it returns a list of cases that match that search word, just like you would with Google.” Westlaw is the original publisher of most law books primarily used by judges and lawyers. “Since it’s online you don’t have to take up a large amount of space,” said Manning. “It’s essentially what we did with the law library in the jail here about six or eight months ago. We went from $36,000 a year to $2,000-3,000 a year to provide inmate law library access as mandated by the consent decree. “When you pull up a case on Westlaw online and you print it out, it literally looks as if you photocopied it out of a book,” said Manning. “It’s ridiculously simple.” In other business Connie Cassidy was re-appointed to a two year term as the county purchasing agent.

Dipping vats and wild horses From Page 1

Our government realized the seriousness of fever ticks and launched an investigation and research on how to eradicate them. After a long period, they decided every cow, horse and dog were dipped every 14 days for nine months, it would wipe them out. New dipping vats were built, range riders where hired to over see each vat and were trained in how to charge the vats with a solution of creosote so it was effective in killing ticks but not harmful to animals. They were also charged with keeping count of the numbers of cows dipped each dipping day. Animals were marked with red paint after the first dipping and yellow pain after the

ping days. Folks within a five mile radius had to bring their stock in and sometimes they would show up at the same time and get their stock mixed up. In an effort to separate them, they would run them through the fences and create all sorts of problems. It would, at times, resemble a three ring circus and provide lots of laughs and excitement. There was never a dull moment on dipping day. At first, the compulsive dipping law of the late 1930s seemed harsh and unfair and many said the desired result could never succeed. Actually, it was a big success and the troublesome fever tick was permanently eradicated and the reward for cattleman, dairymen, farmers and

second and another color after the third and so forth. If you were short an animal or two, you had to spend the next few days to come up with them. The range rider on our Dunn vat was Asa Noguess. My Dad was also hired as a range rider but was assigned to another vat in the county. They could not work their home vat. Dad had lots of cattle at this time. It was the days of wide open range and some of his cows ranged miles from home, so, anticipating the difficult task of getting them all in every 14 days, he gather them up and sold them to Mr. Richardson, who had a large pasture near Kirbyville. There were close to 500 head of cattle and they were sold for $17 per cow and $12 per yearling. Calves were thrown in for nothing. A herd that size would bring a fortune at today’s prices. The sale of the herd included delivery, so Asa, Dewey Bean, carl Manual and I, along with Mr. Richardson, drove them all the way from home to Kirbyville. We followed Highway 62 north, a dirt road at the time, to about Gist, then we turned right and went through the woods to where we were going. On the first night, there was a Captain Baker that had a pasture around Gist. We penned the cows in that pasture. We also left our horses there and we came home. We loaded up three cow dogs in the trailer to bring them home too. We loaded up Mike and Nick, but we could not catch Richard. We left without him. The next morning, Richard made it home on his own. We left him home that second day because his paws were worn and sore. The second night, we penned the cattle in someone’s pasture near Bessamay. It was a long hard drive but we made it three days and didn’t lose an animal. By the time the actual dipping got started in 1936, all the men in our family had gotten jobs they wanted to hang on to. Dad was working as a range rider so Dewey Bean and I were the only ones available to take on the gathering and dipping of our remaining herd, which was about 60 head of cattle and 148 horses. We pinned cows on Saturday afternoon and put them all in a catch pasture. On Sunday, we gathered up all the horses and put them in a separate enclosure. As soon as we got through milking on Monday, which was our assigned dipping day, we saddled up and started with the horses. Then came the cows. Dewey and I also agreed to dip the Burton herd, maybe 50 or 60 head, and a small herd of Claybar cattle, maybe 30 head. As you can imagine, every other Monday, or ‘dipping day’ was a long and tiring day for us and at the end of the day, if the count showed we were short an animal or two, it meant another two or three days of hard riding to locate them in order to avoid another penalty. Things didn’t always go as intended on dip-

anyone with livestock was peace of mind. Personally, I would say despite the hard work, long days and hard riding, it was an exciting time for a teenager to experience and I am glad I was involved. Everything got off to a smooth start but within a couple of weeks a problem arose which threatened to set it back. The problem was a group of eleven wild horses located in the uninhabited area known as Nips Marsh. This area, I think, was located in both Newton and Jasper counties and was a few miles east of Gist. Several riders and parties of riders tried for days to pen these horses but to no avail. They even built a catch pen with a wing fence but the wild bunch, led by a black stallion, knew every trail and refused to be corraled. The law said all livestock must be dipped and this little band of horses was a threat to the program. The people heading up the program had a meeting and devised a plan to take a herd of manageable horses to Nips Marsh, spread them out, and riders would attempt to drive the wild horses into the decoy herd. My dad had lots of horses so he was the one they asked for use of his horse herd. Of course, he gave permission and a date was set. I cannot over emphasize the excitement and anticipation on that appointed morning. Trucks and trailers began rolling into the area around our house very early in the day and kept coming and coming. There were range riders from all over southeast Texas as well as volunteers who went along for the ride. When we finally got on our way, there were 52 riders and 70 horses in the herd. We drove them up Bilbo Road and on up past the old Clark place and went north for several miles. I was lost most of the time because I had never been in that area. After two days of hard riding and enduring a hard rain for most of the second day, we brought our herd home having captured a total of four wild ponies. As for the remaining seven, no one would claim ownership for fear of being fined for not dipping all their livestock. They were just loose on the world. Within the week, those seven outlaws disappeared, reportedly with the help of a high powered rifle. As I remember, at the time this event was no big thing and attracted very little publicity. It was just a group of men, tending to their jobs and trying to keep the dipping program on schedule. I’ve thought of this a lot: In today’s world an operation of this importance and magnitude would have drawn all kinds of reporters and television cameras along the trail. And you can imagine the squawk the humane society would carry all the way to Washington, D.C. The world has changed a lot during my lifetime, who’s to say if it’s better or worse.

A benefit to the surface plants canceling a few days of watering. I’m afraid the drought will resume, so if you need to burn do it now while there is no burn ban. Be careful, there is still a very high fire danger. *** I want to take the opportunity to thank all the good people in our advertising family who support your community newspaper. Patronize them when you can. They bring you this publication absolutely free. *** Big thanks also to all the wonderful people who are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.

We are always looking for stories about the home folks so please let us know. A special thanks to all our boosters. So many of you talk about our paper and our staff is showered with compliments everywhere they go. That really makes our work bringing you a community newspaper worthwhile.

Prescription: 1. Mix Alum, in minerals, to shrink animal stomachs. 2. Sprinkle hay with yeast to swell the hay. 3. Plenty of water to make hay yeast rise. P.S. Pass formula to neighbors for good will. A chuckle is always appropriate for problems. Thanks, JB (Editor’s note: We asked Arrington for his advice on hay problems and the above is what we got. We hope it works for you.)

He is the first non-Italian Pope since 1583. *****The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Band Booster Club recently sponsored a fundraiser with music by Don Williams and the Oakridge Boys held at Bear Stadium. This year the Oaks were named “Entertainers of the Year” and “Top Vocal Group.”***** Other country award winners were Ronnie Millsap, Kenny Rogers, Dottie West, The Kendalls, Roy Clark and Crystal Gale. Dolly Parton was named “Entertainer of the Year.” 38 Years Ago-1973 Monsignor Joseph O. Berberick, St. Mary’s “Father Joe” is in his 36th year tenure at the church. He arrived on Friday, March 13, 1937. Father Joe was ordained on Sept. 22, 1928. He

was sent to the Orange Oilfield to establish a Catholic Church. He opened the church in a shack belonging to Oscar Chesson, founder of the first oilfield gusher called “The Wonder Well.” One Sunday, Father Joe told his congregation, “We’ll stay here forever but perhaps if this old building burned down we could then find another.” That same Sunday night a fire destroyed the shack. Father Joe said, “Perhaps it was the hand of God.”*****Harry Stephens has two Dune Buggies plus a Volkswagen and none are running. He even had “Tee Bruce” work on them. That might be part of the problem. *****Cindi Campbell is crowned West Orange Chief homecoming queen. West Orange lost 21-20 to Charlton Pollard. ***** In the first five games of the season the Bridge City Cards’ “Wild Bunch” defense is still unscored on. Only one of three teams in the state holds that record. Lanston Fall, Mark Dunn, Kenny Brown and the “Wild Bunch” coached by Chief Wilson, are said to be the best team since the 1966 state championship team. (Editor’s note: That was Wilson’s last season. He had expected to go to the state playoffs with this team. Best I remember, in a controversial called game in Jasper, the Bulldogs tied Bridge City 14-14. Bridge City went undefeated until losing to West Orange in the last game of the season. West Orange, with one loss, advanced. Bridge City, the previous year, had done the same to West Orange. Only one team could go to the playoffs back then.”*****Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears, coached by Jim Crossland, has only one loss.

A FEW HAPPENINGS I’m glad to report that Constable Chris Humble didn’t have a stroke. He probably had just some of that crazy dizziness stuff that was going around. *****Our lifetime friend, Ruby Pickard, is now a resident of The Meadows. Meanwhile, John is still at home in the Cove. Ms. Ruby did so much for others over her lifetime, especially for filling many wishes of those who were leaving this earth. She is just a great, wonderful lady. I’m sure she would be glad to hear from her friends. *****Our own Edith “Edee” Pratt will also be at The Meadows for rehab. We wish this good lady God’s speed and complete recovery. *****The Bridge City Chamber will roast Giesla Houseman at the bi-annual fundraiser Thursday, Oct. 13. It will be a fun night. Mrs. Houseman contributes a lot to our community. Honor her by coming out. *****Special folks celebrating their special day are Harry Stephens, who is a year older on Oct. 14. Roy has written about his friend in his Down Life’s Highway column. ***Also the big day for Judge Carl Thibodeaux is this Saturday, Oct. 15. I can’t believe I’ve known that guy since he was in his mid 20’s. He hasn’t changed much; he still says what’s on his mind. ***Johnny Dubose, who just the other day was a snotty-nose kid, will celebrate another birthday on Oct. 17. Makes John and Joyce feel older. ***A gal never lost for words that we have known well over 50 years, Sue Collins, celebrates her birthday Oct. 17. We wish them all the best in the years to come. *****On Oct. 18, Lamar Orange will present Eugene Robinson as speaker at their Distinguished Lecture Series. The event will be held at the Lutcher Theater, 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free to the public. Robinson is an award-winning columnist for the Washington Post. I read his columns when I can but I also catch him often on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show. He has a good personality and tells it the way he sees it. At Lamar he will speak on “Who’s Up and Who’s Down and What’s Really Going On.” Make it if you can, you will enjoy hearing this Pulitzer Prize winner. *****We were sorry to hear about the death of Margie Baxter Davis, 58, who died Sept. 30. She was the daughter of Gordon and Mary Baxter. We had known Margie since she was a child. She and her husband Bill lived in Leakey, Texas. A service will be held Saturday, Oct. 15 at 12 p.m. at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, in Beaumont. Our condolences to Bill, daughter Margo and her family, many siblings and their families and stepmother Diane. *****Even though it is last week’s news, I would be remise not to mention the death of Steve Jobs, 56, who died of cancer Oct. 5, after an eight year battle. People around the world reflected on his many achievements. He was a visionary that changed the very fabric of our lives and how we communicate in this digital age, which he helped to create through Apple and his 300+ patents. Quoting from his 2005 commencement address at Stanford, after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer Jobs said, “No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don’t want to die to go there yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped and that is because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is a life-changing event. Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. Most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Another Job’s quote in the Wall Street Journal, “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying you’ve done something wonderful—that’s what matters to me.” He started out in a garage and that story, in an authorized biography of Steve Jobs, is already number one and won’t be released until Oct. 24 by Simon and Schuster. I personally saw a grown man cry, a doctor, over the death of Jobs when he remembered what all Steve had given the world and the medical profession. Maybe he was the greatest inventor of all times. He will be compared to Thomas Edison. *****On the lighter side, in other happenings, won’t Paul McCartney ever learn? He took another young

bride, Nancy Shevell, 51, as his third but with no pre-nuptial again. The last one cost him many millions for a couple years of loving. Nancy is a wealthy woman on her own.*****Speaking of loving, last week Dow Gene Anderson and his lovely Charlotte celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. “Boo-Boo” made arrangements for them to spend the weekend in the honeymoon suite of a Galveston hotel. On their return she was seen running around, full of pep, while poor Dow was creeping along with the help of a walking stick. Beats a wheelchair. Happy anniversary to these good friends and great couple. *****Sarah Palin not running was a given. We predicted it a year ago. She always has been in it for the money and she makes a bunch. She’s smart but her price and demand will drop. Watch for Perry to follow suit when his door to the big house shuts. He will make plenty of money on the talking circuit. ***** I wondered how long it would take before a Perry supporter would bring to question Romney’s religion, calling his Mormon faith a cult. That’s a Perry trademark. He never says it but he gets it out. He’s done it to everyone he’s run against, just ask Kay Bailey. Romney is an honorable man who loves his country. I disagree with many of his policies but his faith has nothing to do with it. The radicals did the same to John F. Kennedy, accusing him of worshiping statues. When it comes to class, the two candidates don’t compare. Also, one is rich and the other wants to be. *****I met an interesting lady last week. Jackie Huckabay is a Bridge City resident, born in Abbeville. She is doing extensive research on Vermillion Parish and the Nunez family. Her great-great-grandfather was a state and U.S. senator from Abbeville back in the late 1800’s. *****Breaux and Creaux’s tip of the week. Use air freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job and leaves a lovely smell to the shine. *****To the lady who wants to know what couche-couche, pronounced (kooshkoosh) is? Well, it’s a very popular breakfast food that all Cajun kids were raised on. It’s made by frying or mostly smothering cornmeal in an iron pot. Use a small amount of cooking oil, a little salt and a lot of stirring. Enjoy with milk or pure cane syrup. It will stick to your ribs and get you off on a good day, even though some Cajuns even eat it for supper. *****Speaking of eating, the Lunch Bunch will dine at Robert’s this week and with Uncle Jim at Novrozsky’s next week. Anyone not showing up will be marked absent. Chief Jerry Wimberly has promised not to be egging Donna Scales on. She doesn’t need it. Everyone is welcome. *****Ms. Pearl has written a poem honoring her friends Percy Berdelon, 91, and Mac McCallough, 90. They celebrated their birthdays over the weekend. *****I’ve really been enjoying the baseball playoffs. Pulling for the Rangers of course. I think it would be neat to have a Ranger-Cardinal World Series. There have been some great games. We had a break from having to watch the Cowboys last weekend. I feel for them having to face Tom Brady and the Patriots Sunday. Could be another long day. The Texas Longhorns and Aggies are disappointing as well. There however, is a load of good high school games this week. Support the local boys and attend a game while the weather is good. CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS On Oct. 12, Hugh Jackman will be 43; Kirk Cameron 40; and Bode Miller 34.***Sammy Hagar will be 64 on Oct. 13.

Also sharing that date are Jean-Claude van Damme 51; Wesley Jonathan 33; Ne-Yo, 29; and Zac Efron, 24. CAJUN STORY OF THE WEEK Father Morseaux, da parish priest at Breaux Bridge, was driving down IH-10 to New Orleans. Jus pas da Atchafalya Basin, a few miles from Baton Rouge, he was stopped by a Louisiana State Trooper for speeding. Da trooper him, smelled alcohol on da priests breathe and den he see a half empty wine bottle on da floor. Da Trooper axe, “Sir, have you been drinking?” Father Morseaux say, “Mais, jus some water, jus water officer.” Da Trooper says, “Well, den why do I smell wine hanh?” Da priest him, look at dat bottle and say, “Good Lord! Well, I’ll be darn, he’s done it again.” C’EST TOUT United States Attorney General Holder announces, with the help of a Mexican cartel, that two men were charged with conspiracy to assassinate Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the U.S. The case was made in Texas, using U.S. drug agents infiltertaiting Mexican drug gang. The plot was state sponsored by Iranian government with $1.5 million. Working through the Iran QODS group of terrorist. *****Gov. Chris Christie endorses Mitt Romney for president. Meanwhile, the media keep peeling back the Perry onion. The latest in the New York Times. It’s unlikely he will even be invited to run as a vice-president on any ticket. However, money and the radical right will keep his game going for some time. *****Don’t forget the country’s biggest Scarecrow Festival at Shangri La on Oct. 18. You’ll be amazed. *****Also I hear from our friend George, at David Self Tractor in Buna, that he is having a big “Hunters Special” sale. If you don’t tell David, he’ll give you a free brush hog with any tractor you purchase. Now is a good time to visit that old country boy. Well, I gotta get out of here. One more week down. To the boss we say clear sailing on smooth water. Take care and God bless.

Simple ways to reduce your cancer risk Staff Report

For The Record

Millions of people have had their lives touched by cancer. Whether dealing with their own diagnosis or that of a loved one, men and women often wonder what, if anything, they can do or could have done to prevent cancer from becoming a part of their lives. While cancer risk depends on a host of factors, some of which are beyond an individual’s control, there are certain preventative measures men and women can take to reduce their risk of cancer. Stop smoking. The Canadian Cancer Society estimates that smoking is responsible for 30 percent of all cancer deaths in Canada. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note that smoking causes 90 percent of

lung cancer deaths in men and nearly 80 percent in women. However, within 10 years of quitting, an ex-smoker’s risk of dying from lung cancer is cut in half while the risk for other cancers, including cancers of the mouth, throat, larynx, and cervix, decreases as well. Reduce alcohol consumption. In a study examining the relationship between cancer and alcohol consumption, researchers working with the World Health Organization found that daily consumption of roughly 50g, or less than two fluid ounces, of alcohol doubles or triples the risk for mouth, voice box and throat cancers compared with the risk in nondrinkers. Additional studies have shown a link between alcohol consumption and cancers of the liver and colon. What’s more, no fewer than 100 studies have found an increased risk of breast cancer

with increasing alcohol intake. Men and women should consult their physicians about what constitutes a healthy consumption of alcohol. Be safe in the sun. Though a deep tan might look good, individuals must emphasize protecting their skin from the sun. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. When going out in the sun, apply sunscreen with a minimum sun protection factor, or SPF, of 15; wear loose fitting clothing and a protective hat, as many skin cancers happen on the face and neck; and always wear sunglasses, preferably those that provide UVA and UVB protection. Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese brings forth a host of poten-

tially deadly side effects, not the least of which is increasing a person’s risk for cancer. A report from the National Institutes of Health that examined being overweight and obesity in men and women found that carrying excessive weight substantially increases an adult’s risk of getting breast, colorectal, endometrial (uterine), and prostate cancers. Healthy weight varies depending on the individual, so men and women concerned about their weight should consult a physician about the best ways to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight.

Last-o-lanterns Staff Report

For The Record

Jack-o-lanterns are a staple of Halloween decorations. Making one last throughout the season is a trick of the trade even some veteran carvers struggle with. People young and old head to pumpkin patches to pick out the ideal pumpkins. Some prefer perfectly round ones, while others like tall, oblong ones. Whatever the decision, the majority of these pumpkins will be brought home and turned into jack-o-lanterns, or pumpkins carved with a design. The key to having a jack-olantern ready and prime for Halloween haunting is carving it at the right time. Carved pumpkins will not last forever, so timing it right is key. In general, carved pumpkins will

last for about a week if kept in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. A pumpkin left in midday sun and heat will likely rot or mold much more quickly. For those planning on carving pumpkins for Halloween, it’s best to do so a day or two before the big day. This way the design will be crisp and fresh. There also are ways to increase the jack-o-lantern’s longevity. Some of the best methods involve inhibiting mold growth and dehydration of the pumpkin. One trick is to submerge the cut pumpkin in a bucket of water for a few minutes after carving to moisten the flesh. Others say that spreading petroleum jelly on the inside of the carved pumpkin will help. Commercial chemical products that reduce the decay of the pumpkin may be effective as well. One can also try using

a bleach-and-water solution to keep mold from growing. Those who will simply allow nature to take its course should keep the pumpkin as cool as possible and remove as much of the flesh from the inside when carving. However, because no method is foolproof, the jack-o-lantern will most likely not make it more than a week, unless the goal is to discover new strains of mold growth.

For Harry the past is never far away n If life is what you

make it, he made it good, the best he could.

Throughout this journey I’ve been most fortunate to have known and made friends with wonderful, unique people from all walks of life. Everyone has a story, so over the next few months I hope to write about some of those great folks I call my friends. The ones I most admire or the ones who have made life successful and weren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouth. My subject this week is a friend and customer of over 40 years. Harry Stephens wasn’t even born with a rusty spoon in his mouth. His mother died when he was three years old. His dad bounced around and Harry stayed primarily with he and his girl friend and sometimes with an older brother, Ronnie, who Harry still thanks today for looking after him in those early years. At age 14, Harry felt forced to go out on his own. He came to Orange and survived by selling the Beaumont Enterprise newspaper. For three years he made do the best he could and at the first opportunity he left the streets and on his 17th birthday he joined the U.S Marines. Probably for the

first time in his life, Harry felt like he had a family. In those days he thumbed his way through the country. He served during the Cuban Crisis. When his time was up he returned to Orange and in 1963, he got a job with Varrett Appliance. He learned everything he could about the business and took courses on how to repair what they sold. He still fixes any appliance he sells. In 1970, he bought out the appliance store. Married by then he and his wife Delores had three children. Raising a family and venturing into business was quite an undertaking for a guy who had little formal education but he had attended the school of hard knocks and he was a Marine with a strong work ethic. He had never known not having to hustle for a living. You will never find Harry out on the golf course, fishing or hunting on a workday. Twenty-six years ago, he married his lovely wife Margie, a real sweetheart. Together they work daily in their store. Through the years there has been ups and downs in the business world but because

of his upbringing, raising himself, Harry has been able to adjust with the times, tightening the business belt when he had to. Today it remains one of Orange’s most successful, solely owned companies. Most of you know about this store but let me tell you another side. Like most of us who sewed our oats in the 1950’s, Harry is a creation of the times. He believes the 1950’s to be the best time ever. World War II had ended a few years earlier and everything was more laid back. Kids were dancing to a different music; the bee-bop sounds of Rock and Roll were born. The Wild Bunch and Blackboard Jungle, playing at the theater, cost a dime. Marlon Brando, James Dean and Marilyn were on the big screen. Harry is locked into the 50’s through his many collections and memorabilia from that era. Hundreds of pieces in all. Harry can’t retire, he has to have a place to keep all his good stuff, including a bigger then life Elvis and Monroe, plenty of James Dean, old Coca Cola boxes and stuff, even a ringer washing machine, a 1953 bicycle, restored antiques

and plenty more. It’s worth a trip to see Harry’s personal museum that marks his past. The one item that has evaded him is the 1949 Mercury like the one James Dean drove in “Rebel Without a Cause.” Over the years Harry has had plenty of toys, today he plays with his yellow truck. He says, “All my life I’ve been interested in, by today’s standard, old things, old music and such.” Continuing he says, “I guess I’m sentimental about things out of my past because they help me remember those times when things were different. Like the times Merle Haggard sang about a few years ago, ‘When a man could work and still would, when a girl could still cook and still would, when a couple could still jitterbug to great music and still would.’” Margie, even though she’s 23 years younger and from a different generation, tolerates Harry’s music.   He enjoys Fats Domino, Elvis, Buddy Holly and his large collection of music from that period. Several years ago, Harry had open-heart surgery. Margie sees that he takes care of himself. Today he has back problems that Dr. David Jones will try to fix. I’m not sure how the disk problem came about. Harry and Margie are happy when they are together, which is most of the time. They spend some time with grandkids and travel little these days. For many years they followed the antique car circuit. Harry says today, “Life is good. Through the years I’ve been in most people’s homes, customers have become friends. Orange is a great place, with some really good people. I’ve been truly blessed.” Harry and Margie are special to Phyl and I. My admiration for him and how he started life with little but a desire to make a life for himself without a family support system is

Cardinal streak leads to Silsbee


Kaz’s Fearless Football Forecast H WEST ORANGE –STARK over ORANGEFIELD— This game should favor the Mustangs pretty heavily, but based on the way they played against Hamshire-Fannett last weekend, the Bobcats could pull off the upset quite handily. But Head Coach Cornel Thompson should fix most of the Mustangs’ problems during this week’s practice sessions. H VIDOR over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE— This should be a knock-down, drag-out between these two Orange County rivals. The Pirates have the home-field advantage and the momentum after coming up with a big win last week against Beaumont Ozen, which was previously-undefeated in District 20-4A. H BRIDGE CITY over SILSBEE—The Tigers barely got by the scrappy Orangefield Bobcats last week at home and may not fare as well in this huge road game. The loser of this game could very well have a problem making the playoffs next month. H GROVETON over DEWEYVILLE—The Pirates face a tough opponent in their attempt to level their District 10-2A Division II record and jump back into the playoff hunt. Bridge City Cardinal Malaachi Busby leads the attack as Dylan Sams comes in to assist dropping a Hardin Jefferson ball carrier for a loss. RECORD PHOTO: Mark Dunn


The Bridge City Cardinals (5-1, 1-0) will host the Silsbee Tiger on Friday night at Larry Ward Stadium. The Tigers are undefeated in six straight games opening Dist. 21-3A with a 15-7 win over the Orangefield Bobcats. Big Red is on a four game winning streak suffering their only loss this season to the Class-4A Vidor Pirates. The Bridge City and Silsbee contest is sure to be a showdown with playoff implications on the line. The Cardinals opened Dist. 21-3A last Friday with Homecoming blowing out the Hardin Jefferson Hawks 41-7, despite hav-

ing several touchdowns called back. The first score of the game, came after Malachi Busby recovered a fumble that led to a 10 yard TD pass from Matt Menard to Cameron Dishon. Daniel Faulk’s extra point, with 6:02 in the first quarter, put the Cardinals up 7-0, which is how the quarter ended. The Cardinals would only add one score in the second quarter. Menard raced 31 yards for the score with 7:05 left in the half. The point after was blocked. Dishon had a 79 yard score, from the wildcat called back. Tyler Roberts picked off a Hawk pass, and he added a nice return, which was also called back, so the Cardinals headed in for the break up 13-0.

The third quarter was downright crazy. HJ kicked the ball out of bounds twice, prompting the Cardinals to take over on their 41 yard line. On the first play Dishon sprinted 59 yards for the score, and Faulk’s PAT made our score 20-0 with only 11 ticks off of the clock. HJ punted on their first possession and the Cardinals took over on the 14 yard line. On the first play Menard hit Roberts on an 86 yard TD pass that was called back for holding. The play looked clean and the crowed went crazy. After a un-sportsmanship penalty on the Cardinals, Dishon had a 42 yard run called back for holding. BRIDGE CITY CARDINALS PAGE 5B

H ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN over HUMBLE CHRISTIAN LIFE—The Lions got an unexpected bye last week and should be chomping at the bit to face another quality opponent. This game is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at Lions Stadium. H TEXAS STATE over LAMAR—The Cardinals run into another very tough opponent this week and they must travel to San Marcos to face this gritty bunch of Bobcats. H MCNEESE STATE over CENTRAL ARKANSAS—The Cowboys jump back into Southland Conference play after losing to Division I-A Texas State 21-14 in a grueling battle. The winner of this game should grab a hunk of second place in the SLC standings.

The Battlin’ Bears started like a house afire Friday night against the Central High Jaguars. The Bears led the first half, but the fire went out in the second half and the game ended giving the Jaguars the win by seven points. The final score of 20-13 dropped the Bears to 1-2 in district, 4-2 for the season. Next Friday the Bears will face the Vidor Pirates on the Pirates home turf. In the opening plays of Friday night’s game, the Bear defense held tough against the Jaguars forcing them to punt early in the quarter. Hayden Reed of the Bears

blew through the line and blocked the punt to give the Bears the ball on the seven yard line. The Jaguar defense was just as tough on the Bears and held the line. The Bears could not make the fourth and goal from the one yard line. The Bears defense held the Jaguars and the Bears took possession. The Bear offense covered 42 yards in seven plays. Brilion Douglas pushed through the last two yards to give the Bears their first TD of the night. A good PAT run by Trent Manuel made the score 7-0. The ball moved back and forth between the teams with both defenses hanging tough. Isaiah Zavala made a great play when he pounced on a fumble and got the

They took the ball on their own 34 yard line and moved 66 yards in five plays. Emanuel Carter had 26 and 21 yard runs.

The end result was the same as the Mustang tradition for winning a homecoming continued, but Hamshire-Fannett gave WO-S a tough fight as the Longhorns only lost, 22-12. “Give Hamshire-Fannett credit,” Head Coach Cornel Thomspon said. “They are a much improved team. They had a plan to try and milk the clock and give us as few snaps on offense as possible and they executed their plan well.” The Mustangs, who escaped with the victory, only picked up 253 yards of total offense while the Longhorns finished with 281. Senior DaCarlos Renro was the scoring man for the night, with two touchdowns, one on the ground for 35 yards as he played quarterback in the Wildcat offense and the other, off of an 89-yard punt return late in the third quarter. The game seemed to be going WO-S’s way when the Mustangs pinned the Longhorns deep on a JaMarcus Rhodes punt and four plays later, the snap for the HF punt flew out of the back of the endzone for a safety for WO-S. However, the Mustangs weren’t able to cash in for six until Renfro scored halfway through the second quarter. The ‘Horns answered back with a score of their own and the halftime score stood at 9-6. WO-S hit paydirt for the last time when quarterback Jimmy Salter hooked up with receiver Derrick Ledet in the endzone with about 6 minutes left to play in the game. The next road trip is only five minutes down Highway 105 when the Mustangs will face a 3-3 Orangefield team. “Orangefield doesn’t really have any stars,” Thompson said. “But they are very methodical and disciplined.

They will come out and fight for four quarters. They always have.” The Bobcats are coming off a tough 15-7 loss to the Silsbee Tigers. “After playing so close of a game with Silsbee, they have the confidence that they can play against us, especially with us going into their yard,” Thompson said. “We’ll have to be disciplined, execute on offense and defense and that will determine the results.” The Mustangs have been shorthanded all season with not a single game with all players on the roster playing. The injury bug just can’t seem to leave WO-S alone. “We have several guys going both ways because of injuries, but so do they,” Thompson said. “We just have to put aside our own agendas and play for 48 minutes.” The game will be at Orangefield with a 7 pm start time.

Orangefield Bobcats host Mustangs MARK WALLES FOR THE RECORD

The Orangefield Bobcats (3-3 overall, 0-1 in district) will be hosting the West OrangeStark Mustangs (3-3 overall, 1-0 in district) this Friday at F.L. McClain stadium. For the first time ever these two teams enter the contest with the same record. The Mustangs celebrated a 22-12 Homecoming victory last week over the HamshireFannet Longhorns while the Bobcats had a 15-7 loss to the undefeated Silsbee Tigers. Orangefield traveled to Silsbee this past Friday and played swarming, physical, defense holding the Tigers that had been averaging close to 37 points a game to only 15. The Tigers drove into the red zone with their first possession of the game but the determined Bobcats were able to hold off the Silsbee effort and the Tigers turned the ball over to the Bobcats on downs. The first quarter ended with the score tied at zero. At 8:55 of the second quarter, Silsbee was facing a fourth and goal from the 2 yard line. Orangefield’s defense forced a Darrian Turk fumble on the four

yard line that Orangefield’s Rylan Cook, in his first game back since being injured in the first game of the season, returned all the way for Orangefield’s only score of the game. The point after made the score

7-0 Orangefield. After Orangefield’s defensive score, neither offense could gain much traction for the remainder of the half. Orangefield was able to hold the Silsbee on the series after the touchdown and the Tigers turned the ball over on downs. Orangefield converted a fourth down to continue their drive only to lose the ball on a fumble that was recovered by the Tigers on the Orangefield 47. The first half ended with each team playing good defense and the offenses struggling. Orangefield lead 7-0 with there score coming from the defense. Near the end of the third quarter Silsbee was driving towards the red zone and the Orangefield defense was playing well. On what appeared to be a tackle for a loss in the Silsbee backfield, Orangefield was flagged for a face mask penalty that set up Silsbee with a first down on the ten yard line, two plays later Silsbee scored their first touchdown of the night with a Patrick Reed ten yard run and followed up with a two point conversion to take the lead 8-7. Silsbee would go on to score the final touchdown of the game with a Floyd Spearman seven yard run and secure the victory with 5:21 on the clock. Orangefield continues to improve each week. Against Silsbee they opened up the passing game with Ackerman completing seven of 15 attempts for 82 yards, and two interceptions.

Less wind, more rain welcomed CAPT. DICKIE COLBURN FOR THE RECORD

I found it ironic that we finally got some rain two days in a row and the number one question amongst my e-mails was, “Is this going to mess up the fishing?”The truth of the matter is that the lack of rain has had a far more profound long term effect on the fishing than too much rain ever could! I really thought we had turned the corner the first part of last week when we were greeted each morning with a cool northeast wind and flocks of gulls finally patrolling the open lake. Limits of trout on a variety of lures and schooling redfish were the norm for a whopping two days in a row! That hopeful assumption was blown away Wednesday afternoon, however, as the wind swung around to the south and there was hell to pay for the remainder of the week. Not only did it blow as hard as it did all spring, it howled both day and night. The big incoming tides coupled with steady gusts that starched area flags have once again stacked the water up in the bayous and flooded the surrounding marshes. Even the reasonably consistent bite that has held up over the past month tapered off as much of the bait has once again retreated into the marshes. While we struggled to reestablish our deep water bite on both trout and reds, at least one local angler was limiting on redfish every afternoon fishing bulkheads on Cow bayou with a quarter ounce buzz bait. There is nothing quite like discovering that you are 180 degrees off what is working the best. He said that he could catch more fish swimming a small crank bait or tube jig through the flooded grass, but the slot fish were hanging around hard structure. He also added that any time he found small finger mullet on the surface he caught larger fish. Most of the local fishermen that are hiding from the wind in Black’s Bayou are not overjoyed with the high water either. The gulls were just starting to work over shrimp earlier in the week and there were plenty of small trout and reds to be caught. The high water, pressure from more anglers seeking refuge from the wind, and the daily shrimper and crabber traffic make it difficult to put together a consistent pattern. We may or may not get more rain in the near future, but I have to believe that we

will at least see a cold front or two dip this far south before Christmas. As far back as I care to recall, that weather phenomenon is usually ushered in on an accelerated north wind. Quite often it blows much harder initially than we would like, but it is the end result that puts a smile on the faces of local anglers. Less water in the marshes force the shrimp and bait fish into the lake and lower surface temperatures extend the bite on the shallow flats. Let’s hope that cooler days and light rains on a more frequent basis are part of our immediate future and we all do more catching than fishing. If the winds lay down this may prove to be the best week of catching in quite a while. I look for the patterns to change a little, but the bite under the gulls should pick right back up. I am going to bypass wearing out “What to fish with” and the “ethics of sharing a flock of gulls” to share something that will help you better exploit a school of feeding trout this fall. When you pull up to a flock and catch that first fish, drop a marker buoy on the spot. If you quickly catch one or two more fish anchor the boat and continue to work the area even though the birds have broken up. Depending on the depth of the water, a Power Pole is the ultimate tool, but a Stake Out Stick or even a conventional anchor will do the job. It is not at all unusual to continue to catch solid fish well after the birds and other boats roar out of sight. If the bite slows down, pick up the anchor, but not your buoy. It can be invaluable in the event that you do not see another flock of gulls nearby as you know that your school of fish hasn’t moved far. The exception to this approach is anytime the shrimp are skipping across the surface and there are no other boats or birds in the area. That doesn’t happen often enough, but when it does, you want to be able to quietly follow them on your troll motor. Dropping a marker buoy is still not a bad idea as those fish are there even if they are not chasing their next meal to the surface and it helps to have a reference point. Writing your name and phone number on your buoy at least gives you a chance of recovering it should you lose sight of it in the whitecaps or just get excited and run off and leave it. Give this a try and you will return to the dock with more fish and gas at the end of the day!

Battlin’ Bears

From Page 1

The PAT missed the goal and the score was 6-0 with 13 seconds left in the half. The Jaguars clawed the Bears in the second half. Kyle Holmes recovered a fumble and ran the ball to the 16 yard line before being buried by a few Bears. Bramble shot the ball to Malbrough in the end zone. A good PAT gave the jaguars the lead 13-10. The Bear offense got into trouble and the Jaguars took over on the 30. Eric Carter made two good runs and gained enough yards to get to the three yard line. The Bear defense held the line and the Bears took the ball. Bad news hit the Bears again when Wesley Johns intercepted a pass and ran the ball for

long yardage until he was tackled on the five yard line. They were held on a third and goal, but pass interference call against the Bears reversed that. Carter moved two yards and scored. Quinton’s PAT was good and the score was 20-10 Jaguars with three seconds left in the third quarter. Nothing seemed to go right for the Bears in the fourth quarter. Zavala recovered another fumble and the Bears had the ball on the 23 yard line. The Jaguar defense held them and forced them to try a field goal. Manuel made the 20 yard kick and the score was 20-13. The Jaguars dominated the rest of the game, keeping possession and running the clock out.

WOS Mustangs The Stallions slowed down the pace in the second half but still had 2 touchdown runs; 38 yards by Keion Hancock and 18 yards by Justin Brown. The two-point conversion runs were completed by Quebodeaux and Phillips. The Stallions were stingy on defense giving up no first downs for the second straight week. Trey Guillory and Teron Brown both had interceptions in the game. Offensive standouts were Ryan Ragsdale, Chris Griffin, Trey Franklin, Ahmaud Baldwin, Mikey Gobert. Defensive standouts were Keyshawn Holman, Mandel King, Josh King, Morris Joseph. The Stallions

Bridge City Cardinal wide receiver Cameron Dishon brings down a pass against Hardin-Jefferson. RECORD PHOTO: Mark Dunn

Bridge City Cardinals Now the crowd was really getting into the game. Ashton Hunter took the ball on the next play and made a nice, long run, but it was also called back for holding. The coaches, players, and yes the fans were getting pretty hot on the officials. After another un-sportsman like penalty, the Redbirds face a first and 59. Dishon made up most of the yardages with a big time catch, but he was flagged for clapping, bringing the ball to the Hawks 33 yard line. After a pass play again to Dishon, another flag came out but this time it was on HJ for unsportsmanship, bringing the ball to the four yard line. With 6:16 left in the third quarter, Hunter Clark ended the longest and craziest 3 1/2 minutes of the game by powering in for a four yard TD run. Faulk’s PAT extended the led to 27-0. The defense took the field and they were pumped up. Several big hits led by Ashton Hunter, Zach Cole and one a hair late or maybe not, by Cameron Dishon, or maybe Mitchell Hubbard. We will let them iron that out, but Dishon was ejected from the game. The Hawks tried to get on the scoreboard with a field goal, but the defense denied it, with a block. There was one more long run in the quarter by Menard but it was called back for blocking below the waist. Anyway the quarter finally ended with the Cardinals pitching a shutout 27-0. Mitchell Hubbard set up the Redbirds next score by intercepting a pass. Menard then took the snap and darted 24 yards for the score and Faulk’s extra point made it 34-0. Daniel Faulk

From Page 1

took over at QB for the Cardinals and handed off to Ashton Hunter who took the ball down to the eight yard line with a 51 yard run. Faulk then found Malachi Busby on an seven yard touchdown strike and after kicking the PAT our score was 41-0, with 7:31 left in the contest. With 1:58 left in the game, the Hawks finally get on the board with a passing TD. The extra point was good. The onside kick attempt was recovered by Zach Cole. Faulk had one more nice run, 30 yards and the clock expired with the Cardinals victory of 41-7. Menard had a nice balanced day with 117 yards rushing on 11 carries and a 9 for 17 passing performance with 118 yards. Dishon had 84 yards rushing on four carries, Hunter Clark 69 yards rushing on 13 carries, Ashton Hunter 54 yards on three carries, and Roberts had nine yards on one carry. Faulk had 30 yards rushing on one carry, to go along with his TD pass of seven yards. Cameron Dishon led in receiving yards with 89 on five catches. Roberts had 25 yards on three catches, Malachi Busby seven yards on one catch, and Hunter Uzzie had four yards on one catch. Congratulations to Brooklyn Hogden on being the 2011 Homecoming Queen.

State Warns of scam involving Medicaid card Staff Report

For The Record

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is warning Texans with Medicaid coverage to be aware of a scam where a caller asks them to provide a bank account number and tries to sell them a replacement Medicaid card. The state recently replaced paper Medicaid IDs that were mailed to clients monthly with a plastic Your Texas Benefits Medicaid card that looks much like a typical insurance card. People who lose their card can call the state for a free replace-

ment. HHSC issued the warning after receiving a report of the scam Monday. A Medicaid client reported that a caller told them a replacement Your Texas Benefits card would cost $50 and asked them for a bank account number. The state is advising Medicaid clients who receive similar calls to report them to the state by calling 800-436-6184. “Please don’t give any personal information to these callers,” said Texas Medicaid Director Billy Millwee. “There’s no charge for a replacement card, and we wouldn’t ask for anyone’s back account number. Just make a note of the number the call came from and report it to the state immediately.”

Entergy Urges Customers to Watch for Phantom Power Users Staff Report

For The Record

With Halloween fast approaching, Entergy Texas, Inc. is encouraging its customers to be on the lookout for phantoms – phantom power, that is. Phantom power, also known as standby or vampire power, is the energy used by certain appliances and electronic devices, even when they are turned off. A variety of products and appliances, such as televisions, microwaves and cell phone chargers, use phantom power. While it may seem trivial, the amount of wasted energy can add up over time and show up on monthly utility bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, appliances and home electronics can account for as much as 20 percent of a typical monthly bill. And approximately 75 percent of the electricity used to power those products is consumed when the products are turned off. “Phantom power can be compared to having a leaky faucet,” said Vernon Pierce, customer service director, Entergy Texas, Inc. “A few drips may not seem like a big deal but they can add up over time. Appliances and electronics that draw power even when you aren’t using them can add to your monthly power bill. Fortunately there are some simple ways to control phantom power and help you save money.” Anything with a plug, a glowing light or a display can be a phantom power user. The most common culprits include electronics with remote controls, built in clocks or timers and instant-on features such as television, computers, printers, video game consoles and DVD players. A recent study by the National Resources Defense Council showed that some cable TV boxes, which are often left on all day, can use as much power as a refrigerator. Other common phantom power users are appliances such as washers and dryers, electric ranges and microwave ovens and household items that are charged through a wall plug such as digital cameras, power tools, cell phones and MP3 players.

dental would like to remind you that October is..

We're Open!

Here are some simple steps that can help you fight phantom power: · Use power strips. Connect several electronics to one power strip and turn off the strip when the products are not in use to completely disconnect the power supply from the power source. ·  Unplug small transformers (battery chargers and power adapters) when products are fully charged or not in use. Small transformers WE SELL come with many electronics and plug into standard wall outlets. PARTS FOR · Shop for appliances with all-in-one features, such as a phone ALLaMAJOR with built-in answering machine and caller ID display. This will reduce the number of small transformers plugged in and the BRANDS!!! amount of energy wasted. · Check the label. If purchasing an Energy Star-labeled product, choose the model that uses the least amount of phantom power. If the amount isn’t listed on the label, visit the U.S. Department of Energy’s online database to view manufacturer-supplied data by category. For more information on energy conservation and a variety of money saving tips, visit Entergy Texas, Inc. provides electricity to more than 400,000 customers in 27 counties. It is a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation. Entergy is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations.
