President Obama wins Veterans Day: a day to honor and celebrate Debby Schamber For The Record

Veteran’s Day was set aside in 1954 as a day to honor and celebrate the service of all veterans. Locally, we have two amazing veterans who after their years of service in the military have continued to serve by helping their fellow veterans and community. Marv and Arlene Howland, who have been married almost 22 years, never consider themselves as “I” or “Me” but as a “We.” They work together as a team in a ministry devoted to veterans and their families. Their mission has always been to assure that the men and women of our nation’s military received the honor and respect due to them. Together they have coordinated available resources to provide needed items such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, clothing, food and more. During the time when Marv was employed, he used his own money and from sources connected with his work to augment the charitable efforts of the veterans groups where he was a chaplain. Marv is a combat veteran of the war in Korea and earned four battle stars. He also served in the New York Reserves and New York Guard as a Non-Commissioned Officer. He was honorably discharged from the Texas Guard as a Captain (Chaplain). Near the end of the war in Korea, Marv and some of his “buddies” scrounged up pieces of plywood to make an altar and lectern to allow their Regimental Chaplain to have a more “church like” setting in the open fields of the war zone. Most of their services, when they VETERANS DAY CON PAGE

Banquet kicks off Bayou LSC-O Nursing Department Anxiously Awaiting New Building Construction Bowl festivities Debby Schamber For The Record

Monday night kicked off a week long buildup to the Bayou Bowl match up between and Bridge City and Orangefield under the lights of the football field on Friday. More than 100 people arrived to support the teams during the fourth annual scholarship banquet. Master of Ceremonies, Jerry McGinnis, welcomed the guests to the event. “This has been a dream of mine,” McGinnis said. “ Just because we live five miles apart doesn’t mean we have to hate each other.” He went on to say, the group just all “needed to be friends.” “Our two communities are number one, even though we are fighting for number

three,” he said. “I hope the best team wins.” McGinnis was referring to the third playoff spot. Whichever team should win Friday night will clench the third playoff spot while for the other team their season will end. A long list of supporters was read during the event. “I want to thank Mark Dunn and the Penny Record,” McGinnis said. “They never fail to support us.” A friendly rivalry surrounds the Bayou Bowl which began in 2000 when UIL district realignment assigned Bridge City from a Class 4-A to a Class 3-A. As a result, the change pitted the Cardinals against the neighboring Bobcats. The Penny Record newspaper coined the game name to BAYOU BOWL PAGE

LSC-O Nursing Department Anxiously Awaiting New Building Construction Nursing students contribute to nearly half of the enrollment on the Lamar State College-Orange campus, so when a property was acquired to help house an area of study, it was quickly decided that nursing students would benefit the most. New labs, lecture halls, computer rooms and more much-needed space await the more than 1,000 nursing students on campus. The concept of the new LSC-O CONT. ON PAGE 2A

Lamar State College-Orange held the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Allied Health Nursing Building on Nov. 1. Construction on the new building is to begin immediately and will provide new, up-to-date labs, equipment and space for the college’s nursing department, as well as new classrooms for general use. Pictures L-R are: Regent David Montagne; Representative Allan Ritter; Dana Rogers, LSC-O Director of Finance; Corky Harmon, Chairman of the LSC-O Foundation; Dr. Michael Shahan, President of LSC-O; Marsh Ragland, Skanska; Ian Powell, PBK Architects; Jerry Vandervoort, SpawGlass; Gina Simar, LSC-O Director of Allied Health.

building to accommodate career training was part of LSC-O’s 2008 Campus Master Plan. The LSC-O Foundation acquired the former Orange Leader building next to the campus in 2010, and the college subsequently purchased the site from the Foundation so that it may be renovated and used for classroom space. However, in 2011, the campus hired a consulting firm to examine the feasibility of renovating the building and found it would not be cost effective to “save” it, so plans were made to construct a new building. “When the Campus Master Plan was put together we did not designate a specific area of study for the building,” said Dr. Michael Shahan, President of LSC-O. “As we looked at

our enrollment growth over the past four years, it became evident that the demand for nursing instruction exceeded the capacity of our existing facilities.” Currently, nursing students are housed in the Allied Health Building on campus, along with the EMS program and pharmacy technology. Without enough room, many of the nursing classes have had to be scheduled in the Wilson building across campus this semester. “Recently a student said to me they were so looking forward to coming to class in the Allied Health Building, but was disappointed that their class was in the Wilson building because they wouldn’t be able to be a part of the ‘nurs-

ing atmosphere’,” said Gina Simar, Director of Allied Health. “I think the new building will give students that sense of pride and accomplishment that they have arrived to nursing and their hard work is paying off.” Simar says the main thing the new building will provide is room for the nursing students to learn, but all of the new accommodations don’t exactly hurt either. The new building will be equipped with a simulation lab to include two adult rooms, a birthing room, pediatric room and a home setting environment. New equipment will be included to enhance student learning and there will be two five-bed skills labs that will also be for the training of nursing students. In addition, there will be an 80-seat lecture hall, a 60-seat computer room, two 50-seat rooms and a 60-seat classroom. “I think the new building is going to motivate students and will be OBAMA FROM PAGE


I’m blessed. I give all glory to God. He’s been with me all along. I have so many friends and family members and a long list of people I need to thank. I’m going to be writing thank you letters for a long time,” said White-Rogers. “I had just a tremendous amount of help and support.” “My first goal is to go to judge school on Dec. 3,” she


a beautiful, up-to-date facility of which we are going to be very proud to be a part of,” said Simar. “The 80-seat lecture hall will allow for all of LSC-O to perhaps sponsor presentations, hold specialized meetings and invite speakers.” Construction is scheduled to commence on the new building in November and it is hoped that classes can be held in there by fall 2013. The nursing program directors and administrative assistant will be housed in the new building, while most faculty offices will remain in the Allied Health Building. Moving the nursing classes to the new building will allow some of the classrooms in the Allied Health Building to be used for general instruction, as well as continue to comfortably house the EMS and pharmacy technology programs. According to Shahan, the cost of the new construction will be paid from two sources.

“The campus receives an annual allocation of money from the state’s Higher Education Assistance Fund,” he said. “For several years, LSCO has saved a portion of this money and these savings will pay for almost half of the construction. The remainder will be paid from funds generated through revenue bonds issued by the Texas State University System.”There are approximately 160 vocational nursing students, 80 registered nursing students, and roughly 300 basic nursing students each year at LSC-O. However, with the more than 500 pre-vocational students that have to be advised through the nursing department, things have grown a little crowded. Suzanne Baker, vocational nursing program director, says she has worked at LSC-O for nine years and the program enrollment has doubled in that time. “We are now using Simulation to help train our stu-

dents,” she said. “My favorite feature of the floor plan of the new building is the Simulation Lab. It’s going to enhance our programs by offering many new and different learning opportunities for our students.” In addition to the Sim Man 3G simulation mannequin, they will have a simulator capable of birthing a baby, a newborn simulator and a Sim Junior for pediatric training. Simar says the plans for the new building, as well as the grounds surrounding it, are very inviting and conducive to learning. “When I first started in Allied Health, the vocational nursing program entered 40 students twice a year and the registered nursing program entered 40 students once a year,” she said. “These programs have grown considerably and it is time for LSC-O to grow and expand as well, in order to accommodate our students.”

said. White-Rogers ran for an unexpired term. She can take office as soon as the votes are counted and she is sworn in. “I don’t know when that is going to all take place, but if it’s all done by the 16th of November, I want to take office then.” White-Rogers said she still has a few cases to conclude. In fact, White-Rogers said she has a protective order hearing Wednesday in front of Judge Pat Clark in the very court room she will be taking over. “I’m going to check out my new courtroom,” she said with a smile. “I’ll look at it in a whole new light!” In the race for Precinct 1 County Commissioner, David Dubose (R) defeated James Stringer (D) with 4,214 votes to 3.287. “There are some unfinished projects I’ll get to finish. There is more work to do,”David Dubose said. He said there is more work to do on the budget. He wanted to thank James Stringer for running a clean campaign. “It wasn’t negative, he ran his race and I ran mine.” John Banken (R) defeated

John Dubose (D) for County Commissioner Precinct 3 with 4,389 votes to 3,505. “I want to thank God first, and then I want to thank the people that helped me, my family and everyone that worked hard,” said Banken. “I know there were a lot of people that worked hard for me.” He said, “The first goal I have is to get my feet on the ground and look at the budget. We’ve got to get our budget under control and we’ve got to get our spending under control, because we can absolutely not raise taxes anymore.” This was Banken’s third run for commissioner. Chris Humble (R) will retain his job of Constable Precinct 1 with 4.540 votes while Sarah Jefferson-Simon (D) received 2,974 votes. Voters chose David Cagle (R) for Constable of Precinct 2 with 4,992 votes while his opponent Lynn Arceneaux (D) fell short with 2,786 votes. “I’m really excited about the win. I really appreciate all the support I got from my family and friends. I’m ready to go to

work. I guess I’ll have to wait till January, but it couldn’t come a day too soon.” Cagle said he will just see how things work when he first gets in office. “You don’t need to reinvent the wheel, hopefully I can improve on how things are done.” Other candidates who won their races and had no opponent were: •Troy Johnson - Judge County Court of Law No. 2 •John Kimbrough - County Attorney •Keith Merritt - Sheriff •Lynda Gunstream - County Tax Assessor Collector •Courtney Burch-Arkeen District Judge 128th District Court •Dennis Powell - District Judge 163rd District Court •Hollis Horton - 9th Court of Appeals District 4 •David Gaultney - 9th Court of Appeals District 3 •Allen Ritter - State Representative District 21. •Mark Philpott - Constable Pct.3 •Weldon Peveto - Constable Pct. 4

OC Commissioners discuss fate of county property, reject bids

Penny LeLeux For The Record

Commissioners discussed the possibility of selling or leasing the property at the location of the old Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace office located on Farm Road 1442. Clark Slacum, county engineer also posed possibly using the building for auxiliary Road and Bridge offices. Road and Bridge will be relocated when they Orange County Convention and Expo Center opens, scheduled for December. Precinct 3 Commissioner John Dubose said a gentleman that owns a nearby car wash wants to use the building for storage. The building has been cleaned out, but has not been remediated or had any mold testing, because they did not know if the building was going to be reused. Commissioners asked Doug Manning, county attorney to research setting up a lease or sale of the property. Commissioners tabled any action until Manning completes his research and a public workshop is scheduled on the matter. Commissioners rejected bids on two pieces of property. The first piece was on Bridgeview in Bridge City, Account # 001501-000140, Suit/Case# A050157-T. “I think the property is worth more than that,” said John Dubose. “It’s a lot and a half for $3,000.” Dubose said the appraisal for the property is $15,000. The second property is on Mockingbird, Account# 012285-001200, Suit/Case# A110056-T. The bid on it was only 31 percent of the appraised value. Commissioner Precinct 1 David Dubose moved to reject that bid also. Gene Smith was appointed to the Airport Advisory Committee. Commissioners approved the following projects that would fall under the 2012 Routine Airport Maintenance Program (RAMP) Grant for the Orange County Airport: quarterly AWOS (automated weather observing system) maintenance-just under $4,000 a year; AWOS Nadin Fee-$800; Fuel Farm Tank inspection, all hoses inspected and changed and calibrations of the pumps and nozzles. $10-10,500. Jeff Kelley, Emergency Management coordinator said the fuel pump hoses need to be certified. “AWOS is an awful important thing to have at our airport. It’s all the weather and information coming in for any pilot trying to land here. So If we’re going to continue to grow our airport, I feel we need to have that,” said David Dubose. The monthly airport report showed an average of 15 flights a day. “It’s getting busier and busier,” said Kelley. On the Emergency Management side, Kelley said, “There are changes going on in FEMA that is going to affect policy. Everything we have gone through, everything that we’ve worked on for two years straight is about to be flushed.” He said they will have to start over in some areas. A proposal was accepted from Southwestern Bell for a five year agreement for services of data, voice and Internet connectivity service for Orange County. Next week commissioners’ court will be held at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13. Monday is the Veteran’s Day holiday and the court house will be closed.

could hold them, were under or around a tree or bushes which would offer them protection from the elements of war. Arlene served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam era and then later in the Navy Reserves in Orange. She also served in the Texas Guard. Arlene was the first female commander for Post 280 in Bridge City in 1997 and retained the position for five years. On November 30 Arlene will be honored by the Military Women Committed to Service with a plaque for her dedication and service. But, no mater what the battle is, whether it be in times of war, Marv and Arlene Howland devote their lives to the service of others. illness or trying times, it is courage which lifts and propels a person forward to reach new heights. “Courage is when you know what is front of you and it causes you to have fear but you move forward towards it anyway,” Marv said. In 1987, Marv founded what is known as the Southeast Texas Veterans Service Group which is a group of volunteer veterans who consider themselves a ministry and provide military funeral honors. After 20 years, the couple left the group. Over the years they honored more than 3,000 veterans and active duty personnel. Arlene played “Taps” at most of the military funerals. The group was re-incorporated in 2010 under new leadership and is located in Beaumont. The new group kept the original name but has a new administrator. They are still providing a tremendous service for our deceased veterans and their families. The new group has some new and different policies, but Marv says he is grateful and proud of all the members of both the original and new group. The new group is led by Captain Jerry Kelly, who was a highly decorated combat helicopter pilot during the Vietnam era. “It is our understanding that other Honors Groups are forming in Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana,” Marv said. “God Bless all of them for offering their services free of charge. The more groups there are, the more likely a deceased veteran will receive the honors due to them since one team can hardly keep up with all of them.”Marv has actively served as chaplain to veterans since 1978. During this time he has provided services such as counseling, weddings, funerals and memorial services which are all at no charge. He has been named Chaplain Emeritus for the MOAA Golden Triangle Chapter. Together, Marv and Arlene have visited veterans in hospitals and nursing homes. In addition, Marv has officiated or offered prayers at many civic ceremonies such as memorial park dedications, historical markers, flag raising ceremonies and services honoring veterans such as Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Pearl Harbor Day and others holidays. They have also made many presentations to schools, scout groups and civic and Veteran Organizations about our Flag. They attend St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Sunday the members will host a special Veteran’s Day recognition service. They will recognize each veteran by their branch of service and the era in which they served. The veterans attending the service are encouraged to wear their uniforms. Following the service, lunch will be served to all attending. The Howland’s dedication is apparent in everything they do. They have actively cared for the elderly members of the community with needs such as shopping, trips to doctors among many other things. But, dear to the heart is the opening of the “donation station.” They were both instrumental along with Joe Mann Cheek to establish the blood donor site at St. Paul’s Church. Marv and Arlene are active members of the Civic Advisory Council of LifeShare Blood Canters and help raise funds and recruit blood donors. Marv can no longer donate blood because of his battle with leukemia, but Arlene is a regular donor and gives platelets about every three weeks. Over the past 20 years, she has donated nearly 23 gallons of blood. Hardwork and dedication to their many causes have made the Howlands a very respected couple. Those who have come in contact with them value their friendship and realize what a gift they are to everyone.

CONDOLENCES We were saddened to learn of the death of Donald Ray Hogg, 48. He was much too young to leave us. He died on Nov. 1. We just do not have any choice when God calls us home. Apparently, Donald’s heart just gave out. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Howard and Michael. Donald, over the years, had helped get The Record Newspapers delivered to the citizens. He was a nice guy who walked through life at his own pace. Our condolences goes out to wife Frances, daughter Brittanie, sisters Brenda and Ronda, brothers Carl and Harry and their families. It just won’t be the same not to have Donald around when its newspaper time on Wednesday mornings. Services were held Tuesday, Nov. 6. May he rest in peace.

From the Creaux’s Nest LOCAL ELECTION DONE--DUBOSE CAUGHT IN ROMNEY SWEEP The voters in Orange County are to be complimented for a record turnout. Even though our votes didn’t play in the national election outcome, the voters exercised their right. In local races, there were five contested races. Republican Mandy White Rogers beat Democratic Mike Abbott for the unexpired term for County-Court-at-Law. In Pct. 1, commissioners court race, incumbent Republican David Dubose was re-elected over former commissioner James Stringer. For commissioner of Pct. 3, incumbent commissioner, Democrat John Dubose was defeated by Republican John Bankin, in what apparently was straight party voters voting for Mitt Romney. Dubose will complete 12 years as county commissioner on Dec. 31. Also it’s believed that the county, borrowing $6 million in the last weeks of the campaign might have been a problem for Dubose. In the constable race, incumbent Republican Chris Humble was reelected. In the open seat for constable Pct. 2, Republican David Cagle won. All four Orange County constables come January will be Republicans. Commissioners Court will now have three Republicans. Orange County voted strongly for Republican Mitt Romney in the national election. Down ballot races benefited by his coat tails. Well, that’s an early report based only on early votes. In the Dist. 36 congressional district, it appears that Republican Steve Stockman will win big. He is from the Houston area and will replace Con. Kevin Brady as our congressman. Brady was elected in another district.*****That’s about all I have and I’m past deadline so I’d best move on. Come along, it won’t do you no harm. AFTER LONG HAUL AND MANY BUCKS POLITICAL END COMES After 17 months and more than $2 billion spent in the presidential race, and another billion spent in senatorial and congressional races, the long haul came to an end. What have we gained after all those bucks thrown around like play money? Something must be done to change the political finance laws. Nearly a billion dollars was contributed by 122 individuals to Super Pacs. It’s become a rich man’s game. Under the present law, two people, say wealthy people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, could put up $3 billion and own the presidency and legislature. The Koch Brothers spent nearly $400 million to elect their candidates. Others spent millions more. Under our present law, control of our government is for sale to a handful of individuals. Bill Clinton spent a million dollars. It just can’t keep escalating like that and the country remain healthy. For the wealthy it’s a power game but to average Americans it’s their lives that are at stake. After all those months and billions spent what did we really change. The Congress remains in the hands of the Republicans, with slight gains by the Democrats. The Senate remains in the control of the Democrats. When all the votes are counted, President Barack Obama will still be president. Money buys elections but in this case, small contributors, millions of them, were able to match the wealthy donors, but as it escalates that won’t always be the case. This election for president shouldn’t have even been close. President Obama was leading throughout the country by at least 12 percentage points until the first debate. Some day I hope we find out what really happened to cause President Obama to be so passive. Mitt Romney made a complete U-turn from being a far right winger to a moderate. Obama had prepared to defend against Romney’s conservative stances, his flip-flop apparently caught Obama by surprise. He let Romney just change one position after another without challenging him. That changed the course of the election. One debate, the first one, will live in the history book as the day Obama let the “White Cat” out of the bag. During the Republican Primary, President Obama ordered the killing of Bin Laden and that served him well in the polls, especially since Romney said he wouldn’t enter Pakistan to do so. I believe Romney made a big mistake when he picked Paul Ryan over Sen. Rob Portman as his vice-presidential choice. I understand that choice was made in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Ryan was a Dick Cheney choice. Over the weekend, AP came out with a Ryan interview where he said as VP he would govern like Cheney, and not just be used to attend funerals. Ryan in government is very scary. He and Eric Canter have used the congress to hold the country hostage. Now he wil be the standard barer for the Republican Party. Sen. Portman would have delivered Ohio. Ryan couldn’t guarantee Wisconsin. Before Sandy, I predicted Obama would win with 294 Electoral College votes. I didn’t know if Hurricane Sandy would hurt or help. We will have to wait until the total results are in. What has been disturbing is how much effort was put into suppressing the vote in Republican controlled states. Some people having to stand in line for as long as 10 hours to vote. Voters are being hassled in every way possible. This is not what our Founding Fathers intended. I believe, of all the spokesmen for the two candidates, Sen. John McCain hurt his creditability worse than any other. His war mongering and using the tragedy in Libya to spin political discourse all over the country was really disgraceful. John Sununu, Donald Trump and Mayor Rudy playing the race card showed them up as who they really are. McCain’s motivation, still sore from getting beaten, but for the others it’s their true hate for Obama. I’m writing this long before the polls close. We will just have to wait on the official count but I’ll stick with my 294 votes for Obama.

SAYING GOODBYE TO JUDGE PAT--HELLO TO JUDGE MANDY It won’t be long now. For many years, Judge Pat Clark has sat on the bench. It has served as a perfect excuse to dodge honeydo’s but the gig is about to be up. Ms. Rosalie has checked off the chores long over due doing. Judge Pat will miss the bench for more ways than one. The longtime judge has enjoyed the work. Judge Pat is a fine judge who loves the law and is dedicated to administrating it in a fair and impartial manner. Since stepping down as district judge and assuming the unexpired term in county-court-at- law, he knew the judgeship was just temporary but he will be leaving sooner than most expected. Mandy White Rogers, winner of the special county court at law election, has confirmed that she will assume the post as soon as possible. Her target date is Nov. 16 or shortly after. In regular elections, the winning candidate would take office on Jan. 1. I understand the move for Mandy to take over sooner than later didn’t come as a surprise to Judge Clark. We wish Lesli Amanda White Rogers the best and congratulate “Mandy.” Judge Pat, we thank you for your many years of service. The courthouse, after your years there, first in the DA’s office, county court, 128th district court and county judge, just won’t be the same without you. Junior Clark’s boy will leave quite a legacy. Let’s have a party. TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME 9 Years Ago-2003 Orange County Commissioner Owen Burton opens new office in Mauriceville.

CAJUN STORY OF THE WEEK Sostan Breaux and Clovis Comeaux bought demselves a couple of horses dat dey use dem, to make some money wit in da summertime. Wen winter time came, dey learn it cost too much to feed and board dem two horses. Sostan suggest dey turn dem out to pasture until spring. “How we gonna tell you horse from my horse when we pick dem up, hanh?” Clovis axe. “Dat’s easy,” say Sostan, “We can cut da mane on my horse and da tail on yours.” Wen spring came da horses dem had grown back their tail and mane. Clovis axe, “Wat we gonna do now smart ass?” “No problem,” said Sostan “Why don’t you just take da black one and me, I’ll take da white one.” C’EST TOUT I said in the past that whoever carried Ohio would win the presidency. At this time I don’t know who won so all my reporting is projection. I didn’t get the results of the Orangefield School District elections but our main news will have the results if they are in by deadline time.*****If you’re like me, you are ready to leave politics behind us. Thanks to all the candidates who used The Record advertising to reach the voters. It’s your best bet to reach every house. Two big football games this weekend in Orange County. The annual “Bayou Bowl” between Bridge City and Orangefield should be a barn burner. The winner gets to go to playoffs, plus they get the Buzzie Gunn trophy. Also West Orange has Silsbee to meet for the district championship.*****I’m going to take a little time off, hopefully this week, if not at least in the next couple of weeks. For now, I’m going to get some food, relax and watch the national returns. Thanks for your time. Please shop our family of advertisers. Remember the veterans this Veterans Day. Take care and God bless.

the “Bayou Bowl.” The newspaper sponsored and promoted the event the first four Bayou Bowl contests. In 2004, the newspaper turned the trophy presentation over to the Bridge City-Orangefield Rotary Club, according to archives. The Buzzie Gunn trophy remains the winning football team’s prize to keep until they meet again at the next Bayou Bowl. The trophy is regarded as a symbol for good sportsmanship and memorializes local photographer and Orange County enthusiast the late Buzzie Gunn. Along with his father, T.L. Gunn, the pair were pioneers in photographing the early years of Orange County football for the local media. Buzzie later became the second generation of Gunn’s Studio in Orange after shooting for various publications which included Sports Illustrated. Today the studio is owned by Buzzie’s son, Chris. The money raised will go towards two $1,000 scholarships to be given to one football player from each team during their spring athletic banquet. The coaching staff of each team nominates three players. Then after carefully evaluating each nominee, one is chosen. One of the guest speakers at the event was Brett Ramsey. During his time playing at Bridge City High School, as a quarterback, he was named as an All District Football Player. He was among the first group of players who played in the 3A division from 7th grade through high school. During his speech, he urged the players to “savor the moment” and to not try to “speed things up.”He added that for some players this would be their last game to ever play or to attend the practices. “You may never get the feeling again,” he said. “Be in the moment because you may never get to have that again.’

Finally he added, “Play hard, play fast and will yourself to success.” Cody Sparks, also a former football player, spoke to his days and memories of the Bayou Bowl. “I will always remember the Bayou Bowl as a special game,” he said. Sparks was said to be a valuable player with a tremendous amount of athletic ability. Following his graduation he played at Tulane University and received a degree in accounting. Zach Cole, Bridge City Senior and on the football team, spoke on behalf of his teammates. “I have made some memories that will last a lifetime,” he said. “I am really thankful we can do this.” Also speaking on behalf of his teammates was Eric Truncale who is a senior but also Orangefield’s quarterback. “I have been blessed to play for the last three years,” Truncale said. “Outside of football, we are all friends.” Bridge City Head Coach, Cris Stump also spoke to the football team and others. All jokes aside, he said for each member of the team to turn and ask a senior, “How fast did it go?” Josh Smalley, Orangefield Head Coach, stated he has had the opportunity to coach at both schools, but loves where he is now. “Just because you change jobs doesn’t mean you stop caring about people,” he added. Smalley also informed everyone, both teams had defeated or lost to the same opponents and predicts the game on Friday night will be “close.” In closing he said, “We’ll see you guys Friday night.”

If you or your community affiliations have potential projects that fit this description, please bring them to the attention of the KOCB board at 330-9373.

The Tigers are averaging nearly 39 points per contest while the Mustangs have surrendered only 20 this season and none in the five district games. The Tigers will probably score—but not enough points to win the district title. BRIDGE CITY over ORANGEFIELD This important game in which the winner goes to the playoffs and the loser begins basketball practice should come down to the team with the best defense will extend their season. The Cardinals had better be able to stop the ground game while the Bobcats will need to put a bunch of points on the scoreboard. Home field advantage may have something to do with the winner, too.

Mustangs stampede BC Cardinals, 46-0 Even though the Mustangs were plagued with the “stomach bug” Friday night, they were able FOR THE RECORD to overcome while the Bridge City Cardinals were bitten by the “Mustang bug” that they were never able to overcome. The Mustangs won, 46-0, after another slow start because of the virus. “We performed well with Bridge City coming into our place,” Head Coach Cornel Thompson said. “We had several kids sick around game time but our back-ups responded well and we got after them pretty good.” The Mustangs also had another distraction with celebrating senior night prior to kick-off. Eighteen senior football players were introduced, along with the senior trainers, cheerleaders, Fillies, band members, managers and Silver Studs. The WO-S offense put up big numbers, scoring 46 points in three quarters, with twelve offensive players touching the ball, as they racked up 409 total offensive yards. The defense was also outstanding, holding the Cardinal offense to just 43 yards, 37 of those coming through the air. Bridge City running back Ashton Hunter, who came into the game with 1010 yards for the season, was held to just 13 on 16 carries. Quarterback Jimmy Salter had two rushing touchdowns and also had two passes completed for touchdowns. He finished with his hand in at least 180 offensive yards. He started off the scoring early in the second quarter after moving the ball down the field with a 19-yard run by Quentin Tezeno, a 14-yard pass to J’Marcus Rhodes and a 9-yard pass to Dre Spencer before taking it across the goal line from three yards out. Just three minutes later, Rhodes snagged a BC Daniel Faulk pass and returned it 39 yards for the second score. Rodickson




teams in District 20-4A just to grab that final playoff spot. The Pirates are comfortably in the playoffs, but can’t lose any momentum in this cross-county rivalry. DEWEYVILLE over GROVETON The Pirates need to win this final regular-season game to earn a berth in the state playoffs. They’ve had a great season and would put the icing on the cake with a win Friday night in front of their fans at Pirate Stadium. ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN over MAGNOLIA LEGACY PREP The Lions will close out another fine season at noon Saturday in Orange after soundly defeating Houston Texas Christian 6215 last week. LAMAR over NICHOLLS STAT If the 3-7 Cardinals are going to win a Southland Conference football game this season, they had better play one of their best games this week against the visiting Colonels from Nicholls State, who have posted only one win in eight games this season. McNEESE STATE over UT-SAN ANTONI The 5-4 Roadrunners played nationally-ranked Louisiana Tech on even terms for three quarters before the No. 22-ranked Bulldogs pulled away for a 51-27 win last week. The Cowboys will have their work cut out, despite the fact UT-SA has dropped


Cano’s kick was off but the Mustangs still led, 13-0. On the Mustangs next drive Tezeno took the ball as the “Wildcat” quarterback and headed around the right side to the end zone for the third score. Up 19-0 wasn’t enough for Salter going into the locker room so on the last play before the half, he scrambled around until he saw an open lane and took the ball in for another score from eight yards out as time expired before the half. The Cardinals started the second half, kicking to WO-S, who promptly moved the ball 60 yards for the first score of the third quarter. Tremaine Anderson scored on a 21-yard pass from Salter. Back-up quarterback Chase Rutledge scored the last two touchdowns for the Mustangs on a 2-yard run and a 1-yard run. All three of Cano’s kicks were good in the second half. The Mustangs have scored 233 points in district while allowing no points to be scored on them. However, the game that has been talked about since the season started is just around the corner for WO-S. “This one is the one everyone has been waiting for,” Thompson said. “Every week I’ve had to remind them-‘Silsbee is the last game. We can’t look past the one this Friday.’ And now it is here. So I will ask them today, ‘What are we going to do now?’ We have got to be prepared.” Silsbee (8-1, 5-0) comes into the game having lost only their first contest to Port Neches-Groves, 20-21. The Tigers are led by Patrick Reed, who, according to Thompson, is the best quarterback WO-S has seen since the Central game. “The Reed kid has great mobility, a great arm and can throw the length of the field,” Thompson said. “He’s a real athlete.” Reed’s favorite receivers are Montana Garcia, Jordan Holmes and Chris Elam while Floyd Spearman is a threat toting the ball. Their defense, according to Thompson, is very similar to the Mustangs, where they swarm the ball. Tiger nose guard Seth Adams leads the defense with Elam and Garcia rounding out the corners.“I’ve been in all the contests against Silsbee and they

have all been good games,” Thompson said. “We’ll be playing there and it may just come down to who makes the last mistake. I’m going to tell our guys that if you don’t bring your ‘A’ game, don’t get on the bus.” The big match-up will be at Silsbee’s Tiger Stadium Friday night at 7 pm. Tickets will not be on sale at the WO-S athletic office but will have to be purchased Friday prior to the game at the gate. Admission will be $4 for adults and $2 for students. The Stallions beat all three Cardinal teams last Thursday with the 7th and 8th B team winning 16-0, the 7th A team winning, 28-8 and the 8th A team coming from behind to win, 24-22. The ninth grade team also made a comeback with 1:03 left in the game to win it, 10-8. WO-S scored a safety 4:42 left in the fourth when BC snapped the ball out of the end zone. Then JaDarrius Thompson scored a TD from 4 yards out to tie it and Payton Robertson caught the two-point conversion from Maliki Hodge to seal the victory. Offensive standouts were Thompson, Robertson, Hodge and David Webb. Defensive standouts were Robertson, Webb and Jovontae Johnson. The freshmen team finishes the season with an overall record of 7-2 and a district record of 5-0, making them the district champs. The JV team beat Bridge City, 36-8. Dee Wolfford scored on a 32-yard run to start the scoring and Dillon Sterling-Cole ran in the two-point conversion. Sterling-Cole also threw a touchdown pass to Jermaine Mitchell for 18 yards, had a 28 yard touchdown run, another two-point conversion and two touchdown passes to Caleb Collins-a 36-yarder and a 60-yarder to finish the game. Outstanding players for the JV team were Stephen Tims, Marco Jaganathan, Sterling-Cole, Collins and Mitchell. The JV team will combine with the freshmen to finish out the season Thursday night at home against the Silsbee Tigers. Kickoff will be at 6 pm. The Mustangs will need all of their fans to be at Friday’s game in Silsbee, cheering the entire game. Come out and show your support.

Last Sunday was a strange day for both of our Lone Star State’s National Football League franchises. The Dallas Cowboys were up against the only undefeated team in the NFL while the Houston Texans were hosting a team with one of the most porous defenses in the league. The results were what the Vegas Boys predicted, but the manner in which each game unfolded was a bit odd because both the Cowboys and the Texans made a plethora of mistakes with different final results. Dallas had a couple of crucial penalties that really helped the Atlanta Falcons remain undefeated half-way through the 2012 season while the Texans made most of their errors early and were able to correct those mistakes and play much bet-

ter in the second half of their game against the Buffalo Bills. The Cowboys defense, which appears to be getting better with each game, held the Falcons to a single touchdown, but allowed their offense to get close enough for Bridge City’s Matt Bryant to attempt half-adozen field goals. The former Bridge City Cardinal made four of those three pointers which spelled the difference in Atlanta’s 19-13 win over the Pokes. Oddly enough, his two misses equaled the number he failed to convert during the entire 2011 season on 29 attempts. The Cowboys were able to manage only one touchdown against the Falcons which came with only 5:21 left in the game and reduced their deficit at the time to 16-13. Dallas’ defense stiffened on Atlanta’s next series, but cornerback Orlando Scandrick missed an easy tackle on a third and long situation that resulted in a first down. Three plays later the Cowboys appeared to have Atlanta stopped, but Scandrick was

called for defensive holding, giving Atlanta new life at the Cowboys’ 38-yard line. Atlanta ran several plays and on a fourth down, Bryant booted a 32-yard field goal with 17 seconds left, putting the final nail in the Cowboys’ coffin. The loss was the second in a row for the Pokes and fourth in the last five games as they failed to take advantage of the NFC East Division-leading New York Giants 24-20 loss at home to the surging Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cowboys fell to 3-5 at the half-way point in the season and must travel to Philadelphia Sunday for a game against the Eagles. The Texans started very slowly, stopping themselves with six of their seven penalties in the first half, and for the first time this season lost the battle for time of possession in the first half. The Bills had the football for 15 minutes, 46 seconds while Houston wasn’t far behind with 14 minutes, 14 seconds. Houston kept stopping itself with penalties in the first half and managed to score only a

single touchdown, keeping the defense-inept Bills in the game 7-6 at halftime. Actually Buffalo remained within striking distance after three quarters, 14-9. A huge problem that faced the Texans was the fact the super running back Arian Foster had been slowed by a touch of the flu that had gone around the team during the last couple of weeks. And his back-up, Ben Tate didn’t play because of an injury, leaving that job for newcomer Justin Forsett. But an ill Arian Foster is still better than a team having healthy running backs as he ground out 111 yards on 24 carries and scored on a threeyard touchdown run. His 10 rushing touchdowns are the most in the NFL this season. Head Coach Gary Kubiak tried to set the team straight during his speech in the locker room at halftime. “We hurt ourselves in the first half,” quarterback Matt Schaub told the Houston Chronicle after the game. “When you do that, it’s hard to make up for it no matter who you are or who you’re playing.” Schaub continued to play smart football completing 19of-27 passes for 268 yards, two touchdown and zero interceptions with a 126.8 quarterback rating. His favorite target was wide receiver Andre Johnson, who hauled in eight passes for 118 yards, with six of the catches producing first downs. Tight ends Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham caught touchdown passes. The Texans are now 39-5 under Kubiak when they run the football at least 30 times. The 71,698 fans appeared uneasy that the team didn’t blow out Buffalo the way they expected them to. But the 21-9 win was by 12 points which was more than the 10 ½- points the Texans were favored by the Vegas Boys.

Ethan cashes check in first tournament Not long after my back door neighbor, Trey Smith, sold his home and bought a place on Cow bayou, we were discussing the obvious benefits of having not only water, but bass at your own back door as well. “One of the most unexpected benefits was the number of youngsters in the neighborhood that also loved to fish and they really shortened my learning curve,” said Smith. As he began dissecting and patterning his new digs, the youngsters that already lived in the area began making their way to his bulkhead after school to talk fishing and occasionally join him on one of his afternoon outings. The fact that Trey is equally passionate about fast bass boats only added to his popularity. “They were a great resource for me in learning more about the bayou,” pointed out Smith. “Even if they couldn’t fish with me a few hours, I knew they were going to be at the dock when I got back.” They would share anything new they had learned and knew that Trey was always good for everything from teaching them a new technique to handing out lures that worked for him. It was during the course of that previously mentioned discussion that Smith announced

without any reservations, “Some of these kids can really fish, but there is one that is as crazy about it as I am and he is a sponge when it comes to soaking up and processing new information.” Shortly thereafter, Smith and this young protégé, Hunter Gothia, teamed up and currently fish as many team circuits as their work schedules permit. “He has developed his own individual strengths,” points out Smith, “but even more importantly in team fishing, our styles complement each other and we waste very little fishing time on the water.” The kicker to all of this is that the team member riding shotgun with Trey as they raced down the bayou last Saturday morning in a Sabine river tournament was not Hunter.At least for one event, Hunter had yielded his seat to Trey’s son, eight year old Ethan! “He was excited,” said Trey, “and I couldn’t have been prouder. There was never any doubt that the jerky, fruit rolls and drinks on board were as important to him as what was tied on the end of his line, but he fished well.” It was Ethan’s first bass tournament and while I am certain he could care less, he can only go down from this point on as he and his Dad won the event. This was the last tournament of the year for the Louisiana based club and the Smith duo cashed the first place check with a five bass limit that weighed 8.28 pounds. Congratulations Ethan and Happy Birthday! The numbers posted in the tournament were good news for area bass fishermen as all 605 W. Roundbunch Bridge City, TX 77611

15 entries weighed in at least one keeper bass and it took a seven pound bag to make the top three. The largest bass was a very respectable 3.23 pound bass. The bass fishing has been very consistent over the past three weeks. The only complaint on the saltwater scene has been that you can only keep two flounder per day throughout the month of November. It hasn’t been all that difficult to quickly limit of late and the fish have been very solid. Jason Teal fished Gulp swimming mullets off the revetment wall Monday and Tuesday for no longer than thirty minutes to limit each morning. “The first morning I had my two keepers in ten minutes and the second morning it would

have been even faster, but I culled one because it was barely lip hooked and in good condition.” His two fish Monday totaled just over six pounds and this two fish Tuesday weighed almost nine pounds! Apparently there is no longer an acute shortage of the Gulp mullet as I received a number of calls and emails from folks that said they are finally able to find it in several different stores. Eric Ronning said that they just received 500 packages and 25 buckets over at Daily’s Hunt N Fish. Once the Cameron flounder bite gets a little more consistent it will, however, disappear again in a hurry!

any easier for 9-0 ‘Bama when the host Texas A&M (7-2) Saturday. Things remained pretty much the same at the top of this week’s Associated Press Collegiate Football Poll with Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame retaining the top four places in this week’s poll. Georgia moved up two posts to No. 5, tied with Ohio State who was in sixth place last week, No. 7 Florida and No. 8 Florida State each jumped one notch, LSU dropped four places to No. 9 and Clemson retained its No. 10 position. Texas A&M moved up one place to No. 15, Texas moved back into the poll at No. 19 and Texas Tech slipped five spots to No. 25. JUST BETWEEN US…With this being the final weekend of the regular high school football season, there still are several unanswered questions facing some of our local teams. The undefeated West Orange-Stark Mustangs journey to Silsbee Friday night to decide the District 21-3A champion. Both teams boast 5-0 league worksheets and have both secured a playoff berth. In the meantime Orangefield and Bridge City will battle for the traditional Bayou Bowl Championship, with the winner landing the district’s No. 3 playoff berth. The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears need a win over the Vidor Pirates Friday to nab the fourth and final playoff spot in District 20-4A. The Pirates already have qualified for the playoffs. Deweyville has an important game at home Friday night against Groveton. A Pirate win will put them in the state playoffs. And the Orange Community Christian Lions are in a three-way tie for the district title and are headed for the playoffs. Head Coach Ben Yurcho will have a better idea of the Lions’ playoff position if they defeat Magnolia Legacy Prep Saturday at noon in Orange. So there ought to be plenty of football playoff action for Orange Area schools after the regular season concludes this weekend.

And the Texans remained as the NFL’s leader in time of possession at the end of the game with 34:03 compared to Buffalo’s 25:57. Houston did not do well when it played before a national Sunday night audience against the Green Bay Packers back on Oct. 14. This Sunday night the Texans head for the Windy City to meet the Chicago Bears, who also boast a 7-1 record like Houston. The early line by our Vegas Boys has the Bears favored by one point. KWICKIES…Orange native Earl Thomas and his Seattle Seahawks’ teammates have been rather rude hosts to the NFL teams that venture to Seattle. The Dallas Cowboys were humbled 27-7 on Sept. 16, Green Bay lost 14-12 Sept. 24 thanks to the replacement referees, New England was nipped 24-23 on Oct. 14 and the Minnesota Vikings felt their wrath Sunday 30-20. The Seahawks stand at 5-4 and will host the New York Jets Sunday in a 3:05 p.m. game. Mack Brown got somewhat of a vote of confidence when his Texas Longhorns went up to Lubbock Saturday and upset Texas Tech 31-22 after being a 5 ½-point underdog. There was some unrest among the Longhorn Faithful after losses to West Virginia and Oklahoma earlier this season. The road doesn’t get any smoother for the Longhorns with Iowa State, TCU and undefeated Kansas State remaining on the 2012 schedule. Undefeated and No. 1 Alabama received quite a scare in Baton Rouge Saturday night when the LSU Tigers stymied the Crimson Tide during most of the second half until quarterback A.J. McCarron drove his team in the final 94 seconds of the game to the game-winning touchdown for a 21-17 victory over the No. 5-ranked Bayou Bengals and threw his hat into the ring as a Heisman Trophy candidate.

It’s the final week of the regular season for our local area football teams, and it always seems to come down to match-ups that are interesting and meaningful to anyone who is paying attention. The playoff picture is almost all the way in focus. We’ve seen some dominate, some stumble and some get back up off of the mat to keep themselves in the fight. Post-season lives are at stake as we come around the final turn. The West Orange-Stark Mustangs (9-0, 5-0) have been the standard bearer for excellence all year long. Last week, Coach Thompson and the crew hosted and defeated the Bridge City Cardinals 46-0. It was another signature win

for the Mustangs as they posted another shutout to remain undefeated. Jimmy Salter came through once again on offense, accounting for three scores alone. The real story was the infamous “Chain-Gang Defense,” completely shutting down the Cardinal offense. The Mustangs are already a lock for the post-season slot, so they’ll be playing for pride and perfection when they hit the road this Friday at 7:00 p.m. against Silsbee. Wouldn’t you know it, Silsbee actually has a good chance of winning and have played solid all year. WOS definitely wants to carry their momentum into the playoffs, and Silsbee is the only one left who can create a mark on the Mustang’s impressive record.

Coming off a bad 46-0 loss on the road at WOS, the Bridge City Cardinals (4-5, 3-2) are going to need to have amnesia if they want to stay alive in the hunt moving forward. The offense wasn’t able to execute like they had in previous weeks, but it was all due to the swarming defense employed by a historically stingy Mustang defense. The Cardinals still have a chance to play later on, but you know there’s got to be a catch. The Cards are hosting the Orangefield Bobcats in the “Bayou Bowl” this Friday at 7 p.m. This is where the plot thickens. Last week, Coach Smalley lead the team to a predictable win versus Buna. The OrangeField Bobcats (45, 2-3) can play the spoiler for the Cardinals if they beat them in the head-to-head game this Friday. A win would make them even recordwise, district and non-district, and would natu-

rally give them the tie-breaker if a slot would be available. The “Bayou Bowl” has produced numerous classic games with triumph, heartbreak and all the bells and whistles for everyone who has tracked it through the years. Its fitting that these two rivals square off like this. You get a chance to see who wants it more, and that doesn’t mean you’ll win either. The game is at Bridge City at 7 p.m. The Little Cypress-Mauricevile Bears (4-5, 3-3) took a loss against Central 44-28 last week. This pretty much shuts the door on their postseason chances. They host the Vidor Pirates (8-1, 5-1) this week and the forecast isn’t good. Coach Matthews and the Pirates have been dominating all year, and their methodical running attack won’t be stopped come game-time. The game is this Friday at 7:30 p.m. and though the Pirates are already a lock for the playoffs, both teams will undoubtedly play hard and to the victor goes the glory.

The 2012-2013 general hunting season opened up just as hot as most had hoped for and in some cases it was even better than one could dream. The mass exodus from all the major towns for openFOR THE RECORD ing weekend is only dwarfed by a storm evacuation, and that may still be cutting it close. All the major traffic arteries take on the look of a rolling sporting goods store as trailers are loaded down with any and every conceivable hunting tool known to man. ATV’s and coolers are probably the most traveled items and it seems like every vehicle on the road is either carrying, towing, or dragging one along. One of the more popular destinations for hunters during opening weekend and beyond is the Texas hill country where the deer populations are staggering. Many of the counties in this deer rich portion of the state were fortunate enough to get timely rains during the year and that has enabled the natural vegetation to remain in good shape for the deer herds. The drought from last season has still lingered around in a few areas but for the most part this area of the state has flourished. Many of the deer hunters I spoke with said the deer population was doing well and the average antler growth was something to be excited about. I received text messages all weekend from various deer blinds as hunters took pictures of some really nice deer. All I can say is if opening weekend was this good it may be unreal once the rut kicks into high gear. Hopefully some cooler weather with be here soon and decide to stay around for a while, that should get things really going. On a complete opposite end of the spectrum as far as geography goes was another large population of Texas hunters, the waterfowlers. For several weeks now duck and goose hunters have been being bombarded with good news and predictions of record numbers of ducks. So far those forecasts have been rather accurate and get stronger every day. A great barometer to help judge just how many birds are in the area is by checking on hunter success rates at public hunting areas like J.D. Murphree. Over the weekend local hunters averaged 3.5 birds on Saturday and 4.5 birds per hunter on Sunday which is very good on public lands. Farther down the coast and onto the prairie the hunting was absolutely fantastic. I spoke to Bink Grimes who guides for Bill Sherrill Waterfowl near Wharton and they had a phenomenal opening weekend as all 8 groups on both Saturday and Sunday shot limits rather quickly. Gadwall, widgeon, and teal filled most of the straps along with several pintails. The population of geese, especially speckled bellied geese, is building in that area with each passing front. Snow geese are beginning to trickle in along with the Sandhill cranes. The overall numbers of ducks and geese for this early in the season are very impressive and will do nothing but continue to grow. The lack of water to our north along with some much needed cold weather will usher in a potentially record number of ducks to the state of Texas in the coming weeks and that is certainly music to the ears of every waterfowl hunter I know.

BC Band sweeps three years in a row

Penny LeLeux For The Record

A sweepstakes band is one that receives a score of one in not only the marching contest, but also the concert and sight reading contests. Not an easy task. This year, the Bridge City High School Band not only made sweepstakes, but they have done it for three years straight. “This is the first time in the history of the school they have made it three times in a row,” said Russell Tipton, the band director. Back in the 70s, the school did win two back to back sweepstakes titles, but hadn’t repeated the feat until last year. “Every other year you’re eligible to advance to the area competition, which is our version of the playoffs,” said Tipton. “We went to the area contest in Nacogdoches last Saturday and was actually selected as an area finalist.” Tipton said all the bands march and are ranked one through however many bands there are. The top 10 march again in the afternoon and are re-ranked. The top four advance to the state competition. Bridge City was ranked seventh in the afternoon.


“We were within a narrow margin of making the state marching contest within the gap between third place and us,” said Tipton. He said it was nice for the kids because they haven’t been selected as a finalist since 2004 or 2005. “It was a good accomplishment for the kids to be a part of that process and see how they stack up against the bands in the area.” This is Tipton’s third year as band director at Bridge City. He has two staff members: Tami Goss and Brenda Legendre. Our next thing we’ll be participating in is called the All-Region contest. That’s an individual contest where they work up eight tunes or studies that are selected by the state and then they compete with other kids within the region individually. It’s sort of the same playoff situation. They put the kids in chair order, and then the top bunch of chairs is selected into area.” He said students advancing to area will compete in January. Those advancing from there make the All-State band. “It’s the highest honor that you can get as a kid,” said Tipton. “Last year we had two. This year we look forward to having at least that many.” Out of a band of 82, nine are seniors. “It’s

growing,” said Tipton. Friday is not only the Bayou Bowl with football rival Orangefield Bobcats; it is also senior night for Bridge City, which is also a special night for the band. The middle school band gets to perform with the high school band. “That’s 235 kids, seventh through 12th grade that will be up there, so it’s kind of neat to get to see the future; what’s coming down the pike so to speak. It’ll be pretty cool.” “It’s a pretty cool thing to watch the band program grow so much. The band has always done well, but to see it grow until it gets state recognition; to see how many kids are interested in it and be involved in it. It’s a really nice thing to be a part of. It’s fun to watch.”
