The Penny Record of Bridge City and Orangefield • Founded 1960

County honors Vergie Scales at 100 Commissioners Owen Burton, Precinct 2 and Jody Crump, Precinct 4 were absent from Monday’s meeting. The court voted on a policy change in the way sick hours are calculated to work with

the new Incode X software the county has implemented. It does not change the amount of sick hours, only the way they are calculated said personnel director Jill Shores. The current method has to be done

manually and can’t be reflected correctly on employee pay stubs. The change in calculation will not only give employees a more accurate accounting of sick hours, but it will also free up man-hours re-

quired to manually make the calculations. “It’s going to be great for our office,” said Shores about the approved calculation changes. COUNTY BUSINESS PAGE 2A

Vergie Mansfield Scales turned 100 years young on Halloween. A proclamation was made Monday at Orange County Commissioners Court honoring Scales. She was raised in the Duncan Woods area of Orangefield and married Grover Scales at the age of 16. The couple had six chil-

dren with one of them dying in childbirth. Still living are her son Roy Scales, and two daughters, Wanda Scales Sanders and Pam Scales Crew. Vergie was a reporter for the Orangefield-Bridge City area until 1985. “I sure hope I live 80 percent of your life span, I’ll be tremendously thrilled,” said Orange County Judge Carl Thibodeaux.

John Clark joined the U. S. Marine Corps to serve his country in the years after World War II. He also joined to get an education. In those times the G.I. Bill was in effect. The Bill would pay for one year of college for one year of military service. Many young men were able to get a college education paid for by joining the military. Clark was sent to Korea as a member of the 1st Marine Division about six months after the cease fire that stopped the fighting. Clark’s outfit was stationed near Inchon, the site of the amphibious invasion that helped turn the tide of the conflict. “Right after I got in the Division, they started rotating the Division back to the United

“Employees will to be able to look at their check stub and know as of the Sunday of the pay period ending date what their balance is on sick leave.” On the recommendation of Jeff Kelley, director of Emergency Management, the burn ban has been temporarily lifted. “The overnight recovery that we’ve had this week, the humidity at night, has been very high. It has kept the fire danger and fuel amounts down to a reasonable level.” He said there was rain expected in the next 36 hours and after talking with the National Weather Service that morning he was willing to “roll the dice” and advise lifting the burn ban temporarily. “There are no guarantees in life, but we think we have the best opportunity of rain in the next 36 hours, than we’ve had in the last seven months.” Kelley also reported that about one quarter of the slab at the project on FM1442 has been poured. He informed the court it was time to renew the Orange County Hazard Mitigation Action Plan (HMAP). “The Hazard Mitigation Plan has a five year life. That mitigation plan is essentially the key that unlocks mitigation funding. The reason we have been able to get those generator grants and some of these other mitigation buyout programs is because it’s listed in our HMAP as an exercise or activity that Orange County would take or like to take if it had the funding to do so.” Kelley said.

has to be updated every five years, taking out the projects you’ve done and that are adopted as a city plan and part of a larger regional plan. “We got out in front of it, because we got a little worried and thought it was going to expire and started working on ours, alone and during that process the Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission (S.E.T.R.P.C.) was able to secure some grant funding to hire a consultant to come in and do everyone’s (plan), so we jumped on with that. Since we’ve done so much work, they allowed us to go first. Ours has gone to FEMA and it has been approved by FEMA pending adoption,” said Kelley. The court voted to adopt the HMAP and Kelley will get it posted on line. Kelley also reported on the proposed 800 Megahertz radio system for Orange County. Representatives from Motorola were present to answer questions commissioners had on the project estimated at $4.8 million. Commissioner Precinct 3 John Dubose asked if that was part of the regional radio system Sue Landry reported on recently at the S.E.T.R.P.C. meeting. Kelley said that even though that project was called ‘regional’ it did not include Orange County. He also informed the commissioners that currently the county agencies piggyback off the City of Orange’s system. The new project would be a three site simulcast system in place in Orange County that will integrate fully with Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. Kelley said currently, some of the equipment the county has will be noncompliant in 2015 and there are some areas of the county that does not have coverage, which can put deputies at risk in certain spots of the county because they have no radio access. Kelley said he knew the county doesn’t have the money for the project at this time. “I think we’ve got to get there somehow.” He is suggesting a search for grant funding and application fees which would require about $6,000. The commissioners decided to put the item on a future agenda where Motorola can do a complete presentation on a day the full court is present. That would also give County Commissioner Precinct 1 David Dubose time to find out why Orange County isn’t included in the regional radio system project at S.E.T.R.P.C. In a report on mosquito control, Patrick Beebe said service requests were 453 for the month of October–13 calls for weeks one and two; 440 for weeks three and four. “Our mosquito problem actually hit on the 17th,” said Beebe. Since it was a coastal event that happened, Beebe had been in contact with other counties and parishes along the Gulf. Harris County Mosquito Control system crashed because of the number of calls. “I was told it got real interesting,” he said. No mosquitoes collected to date have carried any diseases including encephalitis or West Nile. Beebe said mosquito activity spiked very high in weeks three and four and dropped on Oct. 28, when there was a temperature drop. “I’d like to say we did it with our treatments, but we had some help.” He said larval development was normal. Treatments for the month included 106,247,000 acres by vehicle; 47 treatments for larva; 54 areas treated by plane, covering 160,640,000 acres; which totaled 266,887,000 acres. “You’re fighting a losing battle, but it’s helping,” said John Dubose.

slept 16 with two small heaters. Clarks’ Marine’s were in conical tents. Both had the same type heaters. “The heaters were fired with diesel and the drums of fuel were outside and had a tube that ran to the heater,” he said. “We had to wrap the diesel drums to try to keep them warm enough so the diesel would keep flowing. It would not completely freeze, but it would get so thick that it would not run down into the heater. If we did not have diesel, we did not have heat.” Both men had the same type of clothing. “We had some heavy clothes and some that were not so heavy, we wore lots of layers,” Clark said. “You did not want to sweat, you could really get into trouble if you sweated and got wet. You would literally freeze with a coat on.” “Those big ‘Mickey Mouse’ rubber boots were good, they were heavy but they kept your feet warm,” Clark said. “That weather was really bad. It was either cold and raining or hot and dry. I was glad when I finally got to go home. “I went about three months without taking a shower,” Clark said. “When I finally got to a place to shower, they had to hose off the walk to the shower to get the ice off of the walk and I had to hurry to get in the shower. They had hosed down the shower to get the ice off of that floor. When I finished the shower, they had to hose everything off again so I could get back to get dressed. After going through that I just started to bathe out of a bucket.” The 24th Division moved to a position near the Imjin River. The Chinese Communists, called Chicoms, would make jabbing moves toward the 38th Parallel. The 24th Division was there to counter any crossing of the Parallel. “They later told us that if the Chicoms had crossed in the numbers they could have mustered that our division would have only been able to hold them back for 12 to 18 minutes,” he said. “There were more casualties after the cease fire than there were in the years of the fighting. Korea was really torn up. Seoul was nearly destroyed; they fought through there five or six times. There were nearly no trees left in the country, it was really rough on the Koreans that had to live there.” When Clark finally got to go home, he was on a ship, still guarding gold. “Our ship had one hold completely sealed from the top. The only in was a door on two sides of the hold. They were locked with a big padlock and we had orders to shoot anyone that touched the lock. Around the clock there was a Marine there with his pistol and if someone would have touched the lock and he did not shoot the guy, the guard would be in trouble.” After his discharge from the Marines, Clark used the G.I. Bill and got his education. He retired from a career in newspaper advertising. Clark and his wife Jeanette have been members of the local VFW post for over 30 years. John has served as Post Commander and District Commander. In 2008 he received the J.T. Rutherford Award for Outstanding Service to the VFW. In 2007 and 2008 he was named an All American Commander. Jeanette has been Ladies Auxiliary President seven times and named Outstanding President four times. She has also served as National Publicity Chairman. John Clark did not join the VFW until 1977. He was not sure that he was eligible. When he found that he was he joined.

Jade Mitchell Saucier turns 40 on Nov. 17.

From the Creaux’s Nest SALUTE TO OUR HEROES--OUR VETERANS Over the years, young men and women have chosen, for many reasons, to serve, starting with the Revolutionary War. On Nov. 11, we stop to observe and honor our vets, the real American heroes. For years, besides volunteers, the United States had a draft. Many served at a time when it put a stress on their families. Today, we have an all-volunteer military. Every generation has produced a new generation of heroes. WWII vets are referred to as “The Greatest Generation” but they are no greater than the youngsters today, in Iraq, Afghanistan and serving around the world. The real backbone of this country since it’s independence has been, and will continue to be, the men and women who serve to protect this great nation. We salute every veteran who has ever worn the uniform of the red, white and blue, the greatest troops the world has even known.***** Our week started on a sad note. Sharon Tucker, 48, one of our distribution supervisors, died of a massive heart attack at her home Sunday, Nov. 6. She was in charge of several newspaper routes. Our condolences to her husband Bobby Tucker, son Joshua Doyle and their family. Visitation will be held at Dorman Funeral Home, Thursday, Nov. 10, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Service to be held Friday, 11 a.m. at Dorman’s. Sharon was a nice lady, a great mother and wife and a friend to everyone. May she rest in peace. *****Well, I have to move on. Please come along, it won’t do you no harm. ORANGE COUNTY UNWANTED STEPCHILD As long as I can remember, going back to Kinard, Louis Dugas, Clyde Haynes, Wayne Peveto, Ron Lewis and Mike Hamilton, Orange County has always had a state representative from our county. If the new state representative district stands, Orange County will no longer have it’s own state rep. Over and over, the Republican controlled state has treated us like unwanted stepchildren. Our state senator and area congressional delegation are all from the Houston area. Our state representatives seat will be held by Allan Ritter of Nederland. He’s a nice enough guy that I’ve known a long time, but that’s not the point. For the first time we don’t have a choice for state representative. Someone needs to run from Orange County. It doesn’t matter much if he’s Republican or Democratic, what’s most important is that he or she is an Orange Countian. A Democrat would have a better chance running against an incumbent Republican. If Orange County supported them and the Port Arthur Jefferson County Democrats supported them, they would have a good chance. Here at home, citizens would have to forget party affiliation, which doesn’t matter that much, and vote for a local representative, then we would have a pretty good chance of electing our own. Otherwise, for the first time we won’t have anyone whose first interest is Orange County. Filing deadline is Dec. 12. It will have to be a good candidate but it’s doable. Romney won’t excite many Orange County voters. Neither will Obama, so it’s a trade off. With a light vote a local guy could get there with loyal support. Our own state representative is far more important then you think. Is there a candidate out there? TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME Eight Years Ago-2003 Sims Elementary first graders Katelyn Potter and Skylar Kahla captalized on unseasonably warm, early November weather with a cool commodity grown in Kahla’s yard. With lemons the size of grapefruit the two friends began a joint venture, a lemonade stand. (Editor’s note: Since that day the girls have grown into young ladies and the lemon tree, which froze last winter, is making a comeback and should bare fruit in a few years.)*****Orange County sailor Eddie Parks marries Michigan Marine, Jennifer “Jenn” Patterson, on Nov. 9 at Brown Center. The couple will remain in the service. They had known each other over three years and met in Kuwait. (Editor’s note: I wonder if they are still in the service and still married?)*****All State Jessica Lemoine, a Bridge City baseball catcher, has received a full scholarship in sports and academics from the University of Louisianan at Lafayette.

38 Years Ago-1973 Bridge City football Coach H.W. “Chief” Wilson has coached his last season. He had high hopes to return to the state playoffs but missed by one game. He said this group was his best since the 1966 state championship team. The majority of senior Cardinals have been playing together since the Peewee days. The seniors say they are like brothers. They are Kenny Brown, Mark Truncle, Bo Worrell, Terry Bridgers, John Clinton, Steve Trevino, Jimmy Lacomb, Steve Culp, Lanston Fall, Chuck Majors, Clint Belk, Jimmy Talbert, David Guidry, Mark Dunn, Craig Turner, Mark Flanagan, Darell Melancon and David Smith. (Editor’s note: Those were a great bunch of youngsters but on the field they were tough. I don’t remember a team at Bridge City so rugged. A bunch of poor boys that came up rough. They are one of the top defenses Bridge City ever produced. They didn’t allow a point in their first seven games. Back then only one team out of a district went to the playoffs. West Orange-Stark beat the “Wild Bunch” in the last game of the season and went on to represent the district.)*****Seniors at Little Cypress-Mauriceville who played for Coach Jim Crossland were Mike Watts, Robert Dunn, Robert Jacobs, David McKinley, George Mortimer, Hunter White, Mark Patten, Steve Pachuca, Donnie Harmon, Tommy Barrett, Gary Wilson, Ted Seago, Danny Haliburton, Tab Finchum, Larry Lunsford, Benny Woodcock, Jerry Person, Don McClain, Jimmy Reaves, Chris Tiger, Scott Morrison, Robert Mandy and Tommy Martin. *****Twirlers at Bridge City High are Tracy Stout, Sharon Primeaux, Jonell Chauvin, Debbie Newsom, Sharon Clark, Melanie McClain, Mary Henderson and Debbie Voohries. *****Annie Hargrave makes great candy. She made a box full that she sent to Tommy Segura, Miss Ann’s little boy stationed overseas in Uncle Sam’s Air Force. *****(Editor’s note: I knew a majority of the youngsters mentioned in this column. It’s hard to believe that 38 years have flown by. Some of those kids are still around; some of the girls married those senior boys. The vast majority left the area, some never to be heard of again. Time moves on. Today’s youngsters will be tomorrows past and on to the senior years. Quicker than one’s mind can imagine.) BIRTHDAYS THIS WEEK Jim Reid, Madalyn Carpenter, Sue Barnes, Eric Meadows, Linda Faulk, Pauline Chatelain, Keith Royal, Susan Veillon, Cecil Welborn, Charlotte Wooten, Donna Bradley, L.C.

Vidor, coached by former Bridge City player Jason Mathews, will meet Crosby at 7 p.m. Thursday at Lamar. ***Coach Thompson’s West Orange-Stark Mustangs will meet Cleveland at 1 p.m. Saturday in Baytown. ***Coach Chris Stump’s Bridge City Cardinals advance to take on Coldspring at 6 p.m. Saturday in Barbers Hill. If you like high school football it’s possible to attend all three games. Bring home the bacon. *****At Bridge City Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 2:10 p.m., three Cardinal baseball players will sign to play college baseball. Cameron Dishon, Ole’ Miss, Jacob Lemoine, U. of Houston and Matt Menard will take his baseball talent to Baylor. Parents invite everyone to attend the ceremony. *****Dr. Conrad Murray, 58, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, “King of Pop.” Murray was accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic. He could get four years in prison. I look for him to be out in 18 months. *****We were sorry to hear about the death of Smokin’ Joe Frazier, 67, who lost his battle with cancer. I will never forget “The Thrilla in Manilla” when Joe beat Muhammad Ali. Frazier was a great heavy weight-boxing champion and a great class guy but spent his life in the shadow of Ali. He died Monday, Nov. 7, after a brief battle with liver cancer. *****Cong. Kevin Brady made a u-turn after holding town hall meetings in what he believed would be his new district. He reversed his course after it appears the Federal Courts would strike down the new district lines but leave the old lines for now. That put Brady in high gear to get back in this district. Skipping his congressional work in Washington, he rushed through the district with five town hall meetings, three in Orange on Monday. *****The death of Andy Rooney, 92, is another loss of one of our national treasures. His kind doesn’t come around but once in a lifetime. He was an original, going back to WWII. ******A few special folks we know who are celebrating their special day. Attorney Steve Carlton moves one step closer to becoming a senior citizen on Nov. 10. ***One of Patty Hank’s lovely daughters, Bree, is a year older on Nov. 11 and still very sexy. ***The beautiful Jeanne Blacksher celebrates Nov. 12. ***One of our best buddies, a great youngster, always nice to be around, Sean Cade Gros turns 21 on Nov. 12. Best wishes. ***Charmaine Faircloth, the gal with the great personality, celebrates Nov. 12. ***Also second grade teacher, pretty Ms. Pat Stanton and her father-in-law, Don, celebrate on the same day, Nov. 12. So much for being born under the same sign. ***A special lady, Ruby Wimberly celebrates her special day on Nov. 14. ***A dear lady we know Pat Kibbie Gifford will also celebrate on Nov. 14. Happy birthday to all.*****Happy anniversary to Shirley and Kirk Roccaforte, who celebrate their 33rd on Nov. 10. What a love story that is. Best wishes for good health and many more happy years. *****I found the following interesting. In 1948, A.F. Burns compiled the following information for the Chamber of Commerce directory, “Orange, the Gateway to Texas, the City of Your Future.” Population in the 1940 U.S. census, 7,472, estimate in 1947, 35,000. That was after the war years. During the war, up to 1945, the population was estimated to be over 70,000. Climate: annual temperature 68.26 degrees F. Here is what might surprise you. The annual rainfall 48.7 inches. What is significant is that in the last 30 years our annual rainfall has ranged from 63 inches to 77 inches a year. It might be that we are not in a drought but just returning to what is normal, somewhere around 50 inches of rain a year. The last few decades we have

been getting way more rain than we should have. I certainly like it better when it rains too much but I understand it will be several years before we’re abnormal in rainfall again. So get used to normal rainfall, about 20 inches less of rain annually. *****Congrats to Bree Fontenot, Bridge City Cross Country runner. Bree, who came in second at regional, is the only Orange County runner to make it to the state meet. All of us wish her the best. “Go get that medal girl!”*****Commissioner’s Court honored Virgie Scales, age 100, with a proclamation this week. Ms. Virgie, who was a Mansfield from Duncan Woods, is the sister of the late County Commissioner Asa Mansfield and also married into the Scales family, Orange Oilfield pioneers. Congrats and happy 100th birthday. *****We were glad to hear that our buddy, attorney Sharon Bearden, got a good report in Houston and is good to go and left Friday for the deer hunt Friday. *****Our friend Doug Harrington took his last radiation treatment Monday and headed home to Crockett. *****We received an email from Bobby Taylor’s daughter, Kayci Donnaud, and I misplaced it. Sorry, but I understand Bobby, who has been taking treatments at M.D. Anderson, is doing much better. Hopefully he will be coming home soon. I know he and Barbara must be tired of living out of a suitcase. *****The women of St. Mary’s Alter Society will hold it’s annual gift shop and luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 17, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Mary Parish Hall, 912 Cherry St. Gumbo will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. It promises to be a big day with great bargains, homemade food goods, silent auction, etc. Mark your calendar. I plan to be there and enjoy all the good cooking. *****CREAUX’S TIP OF THE WEEK: Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely light scent when the light is turned on. Works as well as burning a candle. *****CAJUN DEFINITION: Courtbouillion, pronounced coo-vee-yon. Rich, spicy, tomato based stew made with fish fillets, onions and sometimes mixed vegetables. I like it best with extra veggies. *****With Herman Cain on the hot seat, I don’t know what the Tea Party will do. They will stay home before voting for Romney. Why haven’t the allegations come out on Cain before now? I know one thing, anytime the leech, attorney Gloria Allred, gets involved, there is money in the making. Now the sex claims against Herman has become a shake down. *****Gisla Houseman is attending the Country Music Awards this year. She is sponsoring local reports from the show by Gary Lee Love. The CMA is the best award show. It will air Wednesday night. My guess is “Entertainer of the Year” will be Jason Aldean, “Male Vocalist” Blake Shelton, “Female Vocalist” Miranda Lambert, “Vocal Group” Lady Antebellum and “Vocal Duo” Sugarland. *****Freedom Communications, Channel 6, KFDM, is selling to Sinclair. Now it is clear why station manager “Uncle Larry,” took his retirement marbles and went to the house. Sinclair is one of the country’s largest and may have a different retirement plan. *****Special thanks to Ray Pousson for the homegrown sweet potatoes, orange meat and very sweet. Thanks also to Neighbor Cox for the saddle blanket mustard greens and Ms. Vivian for the great homemade cake. *****President Bill Clinton has a new book out this week, “Back to Work.” He says you’re always better off doing something. I buy that; I bet that’s what our Boy Al is thinking also. *****Chris “Hardball” Matthews also has a new book out on Jack Kennedy. I’d like to have that one. *****On Nov. 8, 1960, John F. Kennedy, 43, defeated Richard Nixon to become the youngest and first and only Catholic president. *****Gregg, at La Uno Taxi, in Orange, is offering special cab rates for the holidays. He’s a good, safe designated driver. Keep him in mind. 409-460-0835. *****The Wednesday Lunch Bunch will dine at Robert’s Restaurant this week. Everyone is invited to join a great group of folks.

CAJUN STORY OF THE WEEK Wen Brother Nolan Gaspard, a Penicostal preacher in Abbeville, go visit a new family in town he always has a meal wit dem. He brings hot sauce, Tabasco and a few green Cayenne peppers and such. On dis Sunday, Brother Gaspard visit a new family from up North, from Cleveland, Ohio. Wen dey set da meal, da Preacher, he load his food down wit his Louisiana hot stuff. Da Yankee family dem, mama, papa and dere teenage boy, figure dey should go along wit da Preacher so dey load dere food down wit Gaspard’s hot sauce. It was so hot dey couldn’t eat it dem. Da boy axe da Preacher, “You preach hell fire and brimstone and damnation and all dat you?” “I sure do,” said da Preacher, “Dat’s my duty to show da peoples wats gonna happen to dem.” Da boy him, say, “Well, I’ve heard dat all my life but you da first preacher I ever saw dat took his samples along wit him.” C’EST TOUT Of all the happenings around the country none upsets me more than the sexual abuse of children by assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at Penn State. We trust our children to those people. If a big, husky coach abuses my 10 years old son, I would want to kill him myself with a two-by-four, beat him to death. That makes my blood boil. Sandusky, accused of sexually abusing boys, for the past six years, operated a series of youth sports camps at a satellite campus after he was prohibited from taking kids to the main campus by the A.D. and a vice president at Penn State. Both have been charged with failing to report what they knew to police. Coach Joe Paterno, 84 years old, is not charged. He did report what he knew to his bosses but to me, that doesn’t seem like he did enough to stop the abuse of children. I believe Coach Paterno, winnest Division I coach, had a moral obligation to speak up knowing sexual things were taking place with children. He did the legal thing but he should have gone an extra step. Don’t mess with our kids and our elderly, that’s when I’m for capital punishment. *****Mark is back from Massachusetts where a snow blizzard and two other snow days came along. He enjoyed the visit with daughter Jenna, Robby and the grandkids however. *****Allen has returned from Tulsa where he experienced the earthquake and tornados in the area. For once he was glad to get home to the mosquitoes. *****Nicole, our Girl Friday, left Wednesday for Oklahoma City to attend the wedding of her best friend and a week’s vacation. As for us, we are promised the best rain we’ve had in seven months. I’ll be looking forward to it but not betting. *****Well, I’m about done all the damage I can do for this week. Please read us cover to cover and shop our family of advertisers. Tell those who don’t advertise with us they are missing the best vehicle to get their message out to the most consumers in our trade area. Everyone reads the Record. Have a nice week, take care and God bless.

A bond between Veterans in strong indeed Mike Louviere For The Record

Orange has a long and proud history of military service. Orange is also home to two very active official veteran’s organizations, the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Orange is also the home and birthplace of a very unique veteran’s organization, the Stark ’64 Veterans Association. The planning for the 2010 reunion of the Lutcher Stark Class of 1964 reunion was underway when one of the planners, Carol Stewart suggested compiling a list of veterans of the class. Mike Ball agreed to undertake the job and was soon joined by Jerry Gatch and Lloyd McDonald. The original thought of veteran recognition as a simple list soon turned into a booklet of veteran’s stories, along with pictures. No one was pressured into sending information, but the vets that were contacted all sent some information, some brief, some a little more detailed. By the time of the reunion 40 vets had been identified. Six veterans were deceased. Twenty eight were profiled in the booklet, with one more contributing at a later date.

Twenty four of those profiled were in attendance at the reunion. Their stories varied, some were in combat, and some were not. Some of the vets had only served a short enlistment; several had made careers out of the military. The highest ranking veteran had been a Navy Captain, the highest decorated had earned a Sliver Star. There was even one girl from the class, Lila Withrow Quilici, who had been to Vietnam as a “roadie” with a rock band that performed for the troops. Quilici, who had been under fire several times, became the “pin up” for the vets. At the reunion was a special ceremony in which all of the veterans present were recognized and presented with a specially designed commemorative pin. “A bond developed that night between several of our class that did not exist previously. I didn’t even know who all the vets were until we began to work on this project,” said Gatch. “Our newfound camaraderie combined with us learning about the City of Refuge, led to the formation of the Stark ’64 Veterans Association.”

There is a bond between veterans that can only be understood by other veterans. The Stark Vets that the City of Refuge was a shelter for homeless veterans and was in need of help. They immediately began to meet by phone, email, in person and any other way they could think of to communicate

about what they could do for the COR. The agreement to organize was unanimous, so the paperwork was begun. As the organizing work was being done there was also a fund raising effort. Among the Stark Vets alone there was $1200 donated to the COR for general use. Gatch agreed to be the Executive Director and to coordinate the efforts of the group. The Stark ’64 Veterans Association was formally incorporated as an IRS 501 (c) 3 organization. Early in 2011 the Vets began a fundraising campaign among the entire class. There was $3000 raised and the decision was made to conduct a picnic for the residents at the COR. Money not spent on the

picnic was donated to the COR to go toward the cost of building a cabin. The goal of the ’64 Vets is to build a cabin dedicated to those from Orange County were killed in Vietnam. Since the spring of 2010 the Stark Vets have donated $5000 to the COR. Membership in the Stark ’64 Veterans Association is open to anyone. There are three categories of membership, the first is for members of the Stark Class of 1964, the second class is for any veteran, and the third class is for non-veterans who wish to be veteran supporters. Membership in the association is free and there are no dues. All that is asked is a desire to support and help veterans who wish to help other veterans. For information about joining the association, you may contact Jerry Gatch by email at: thegatcher.gatch@gmail. com


Veterans Day: Honoring Generations of Heroic Service U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutison

Special To The Record

This year, Veterans Day falls on a Friday. Many people will take their children to a community parade where proud members of the local veterans’ service organizations will march. Some will lay flowers and plant flags on the graves of loved ones who served our nation. Others will just enjoy a three-day weekend or go shopping to get a head start on Christmas. No matter how we choose to celebrate this holiday, we should remember the great debt to those men and women who put their country first and served in our nation’s armed forces. Texas is home to more than 1.7 million veterans, almost five percent of the total population of our state and second only to California in sheer numbers. These veterans are as diverse as the state itself. Young, old; rich, poor; every race, every religion – all raised their right hands and swore to protect and defend this nation and our Constitution. It was their willingness to sacrifice -their lives if need be -- for our liberty and freedom that sets American veterans apart. It is that willingness to go wherever the mission called them regardless of the risks, leaving their loved ones behind, that we honor our nation’s veterans on this special day. Many servicemen and

women paid the ultimate price defending our liberty. There are veterans buried in almost every cemetery in America. Others rest on foreign shores near where they fell. But most veterans came home. They resumed their civilian lives – working, going back to school, raising families. Veterans are an integral part of the fabric of American society. The family doctor, the school janitor, the mechanic at the corner gas station, the community banker, your insurance agent: these are America’s veterans. Your grandfather, your father, your aunt, your son or daughter: these are America’s veterans. They no longer wear a uniform. They are part of our neighborhoods, our churches, our businesses, our communities. And it is because of their service that we continue to live free today. Sadly, each week, more than 1,800 veterans—mostly those who served in World War II—pass away. Most of these veterans are in their 80s and 90s. The tales of their service are an important part of our nation’s history, and there is a way for all of us to help preserve their individual stories, as well as those from all of the military conflicts in which our men and women have faithfully served. The Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project (VHP) is collecting, preserving and making accessible the

personal accounts of America’s war veterans so that future generations will be able to learn about the realities of war from those who fought the battles. Whether it is taped oral histories or personal memorabilia such as letters and photographs, the Veterans History Project is adding the material from individual veterans to the Library of Congress’ permanent collection. You can volunteer to interview veterans from your family or community and have their stories be part of the Library of Congress’ veterans’ archives. Simply visit to learn how. On Nov. 11, we pause, collectively, as a nation, to honor the millions of men and women who served our nation. One day each year, the entire country says “Thank you.” But every day of the year, these brave men and women deserve our gratitude. God bless the United States of America and those who fought to keep her free. Happy Veterans Day. Kay Bailey Hutchison is the senior U.S. Senator from Texas

BC head to playoffs with Bayou Bowl win


Kaz’s Fearless Football Forecast H WEST ORANGE-STARK (7-3) over CLEVELAND (73) Sat. 1 p.m. at Stallworth Stadium in Baytown—The Mustangs appear to be peaking at the right time, going undefeated in District 21-3A for the seventh time in eight years. The Indians are no strangers to the playoffs and should give the ‘Stangs all they can handle. H COLDSPRING (10-0) OVER BRIDGE CITY (8-2) Sat. 7:30 p.m. at Eagle Stadium in Mont Belvieu—The team that defeats Coldspring in the playoffs will probably emerge as the 2011 Class 3A Div. II state champion, so let’s hope the Cards can pull off this humongous upset. H VIDOR (8-2) over CROSBY (6-4) Thurs. 7:30 p.m. at Provost-Umphrey Stadium in Beaumont—This game will get the state playoffs started in Southeast Texas as the Pirates tied for the most wins in the school’s history. If the Pirates continue to play as well as they have all season long, they should advance to next week’s round.

There was no question this time who should be in the playoffs. The Bridge City Cardinal revenged last year’s loss to the Orangefield Bobcats, bringing the Buzzie Gunn trophy back to BC with a victory in the Bayou Bowl, 34-0. With this win the Cardinals advance to the first round of the state playoffs. The game will be Saturday at 6:00 pm, in Barbers Hill, facing the undefeated and No. 3 state ranked Coldspring Trojans. The Bridge City Cardinals got right down to business against the Bobcats. They took their opening drive and

marched down the field, capping it off on a one yard TD run by Matt Menard. Daniel Faulk made the score 7-0 with 9:25 in the first quarter, after his extra point. Not only did the offense have a good start, but the defense got things started early, on their way to their second shutout of the year. A big stop from Zach Cole and a fumble recovery from Cameron Coulter got the ball back to the Cardinals on the Bobcats first drive. Menard took over on the second Cardinal drive, and on a 3rd & 6, he picked up the first down with a 20 yard run. A few plays later he would score on a 25 yard run. Faulk did his job, extending the score to 14-0 with 2:10 left in the first. The defense stopped the Bobcats on their

second series with another turnover. Cardinal safety Mitchel Hubbard dove and picked off Wesley Ackerman’s pass, giving the ball back to his offense. No one scored in the second quarter, with the ball going back and forth to each team. The teams would head in for the break with the Cardinals up 14-0. In the third quarter the Cardinals defense would force an Orangefield punt on their first series, giving the Cardinals the ball on the 18 yard line. Hunter Clark would bust out for a 60 yard run, down to the Orangefield 16 yard line. Menard would then hit Tanner Cervenka for another first down, before he marched in for CARDINALS PAGE 5B

H NICHOLLS STATE over LAMAR—The Cards have a legitimate chance to log a Southland Conference victory in Thibodeau Saturday. Hopefully those last two thrashings by Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin won’t have any residual affects. H MCNEESE STATE over UT-SAN ANTONIO—This game will close out a somewhat disappointing home season for the Cowboys. The Pokes finally snapped their four-game losing streak last weekend with a victory over Nicholls State and will give them something on which to build if they can win this game and the finale against Lamar in Beaumont. H HIGH SCHOOL PLAYOFFS—Thurs.—Tatum (8-2) over Woodville; Fri.—Beaumont West Brook (6-3) over Deer Park (8-2), Nederland (9-1) over Goose Creek Memorial (46), Barbers Hill (9-1) over Beaumont Ozen (5-5), Tyler Chapel Hill (10-0) over Jasper (6-4), Newton (8-2) over Jefferson (55), Beaumont Legacy Christian (8-2) over Hallettsville Sacred Heart (5-4), West Hardin (8-2) over Thrall (5-5).

The Bridge City Cardinals celebrate with the Buzzi Gunn Trophy after defeating the Orangefield Bobcats 34-0 in Bayou Bowl XII.


Bayou Bowl XII goes into the record books MIKE LOUVIERE FOR THE RECORD

The Bobcats clawed at the Cardinals all night long, but to no avail. When the dust settled the Cardinals had won the Bayou Bowl by a score of 34-0 giving them the ninth victory and the fifth shutout of the Bobcats since the 2000 rivalry started. Winning the game gave the Cards a playoff berth and will make their next opponent the Trojans of Coldspring-Oakhurst High School. The Trojans are undefeated this season. The Trojans are ranked 52 in the state and average 378 yards rushing and 75 yards passing. They ended their season by defeating the Liberty Panthers 68-13. “We played Coldspring last year and they are a very fast team. We will have our work cut out for us,” said Cardinals coach Cris Stump. “I was

proud of our kids tonight, they played hard, we came to win and we did.” From the opening kickoff, the Cardinals dominated the game. Taking the ball on the 44 yard line, they made two first downs with the first two plays. Matt Menard handed the ball off, kept the ball, and passed the ball and in seven plays used a quarterback sneak to score the first touchdown with 9:25 on the first quarter clock. Eric Truncale took the kick for the Bobcats and was tackled on the 33 yard line by Cardinal Malachi Busby. The ‘Cats made two first downs on their first two plays, ran the ball several times and were looking at a second and two situation on their eighth play when there was a fumble and Cameron Coulter recovered the ball for the Cardinals. The Cards kept the ball moving for eight plays and then on play number nine, Menard kept the ball and made a 25 yard dash across

the goal line for touchdown number two. A good PAT put the score at 14-0. After three plays the Bobcats quarterback Wesley Ackerman rolled out and passed the ball. Mitchel Hubbard of the Cardinals was the receptor of the ball, giving the Cards possession with 1:07 remaining in the quarter. Two plays later the quarter ended. The Cards had made nine first downs. On the fourth play, Menard kept the ball and gained yardage that looked close enough for a first down, but on the measurement it was short and the ball went to the Bobcats. A handoff from Ackerman to Ty Johnson gave the Bobcats a gain of five. Ackerman handed off to Carmichael Wiley for a gain of four. Another handoff to Wiley gained a first down. Four plays later the ‘Cats had to punt out of trouble. On the Cards possession, Menard kept the ball three times and came up just short of another first down. From the Power I formation

Menard passed to Hubbard for the first down. The Bobcat defense kept the pressure on the Cards and kept another first down off the books. After four plays the Cards booted the ball back to the Bobcats with 2:57 on the clock. The Bobcat offense kept the ball for the last ten plays of the half. Ackerman handed to ball off to every back on the team. There were some gains on nearly every play and three first downs, but the Cardinal defense was able to keep the Bobcats off of the scoreboard. The half ended with the Bobcats 15 yards short of the goal line. Second half play started with the Bobcats taking the ball on the 35 yard line. The possession was a series of running plays with Ackerman handing the ball to Jeromey Watkins, Wiley, and Justin Bradley. On the fifth play Dustin Verrett had the ball, but was faced with a sea of red and no place to go. Faced with a BAYOU BOWL PAGE 5B

Mustangs take on Cleveland in playoffs

Abear Simien ran all over the Hardin Jefferson, giving running back Britton Lindsey a break. Simien had 159 yards on seven carries, while Lindsey had 81 on 6 carries. RECORD PHOTO: Meri Elen Jacobs


Friday afternoon, only one thing stood in the way of the Mustangs capturing their fifth district title in six years-the Hardin Jefferson Hawks. But the Mustangs made quick work of the Hawks, proving why they are 5-0 in district and taking their game to the next phase of the game-play-offs. The 58-6 win puts the Mustangs facing the Cleveland Indians (7-3, 4-2) Saturday at 1 pm at Stallworth Stadium in Baytown. The Mustangs came out strong against the Hawks and never let up. JaMarcus Rhodes caught a 22-yard pass from quar-

terback Jimmy Salter to put the Mustangs up, 6-0, on WO-S’s first offensive play. Rhodes also scored later in the first period on a 6-yard pass from Salter and also on a 30-yard pass from freshman quarterback Chase Rutledge. Running back Britton Lindsey, although he only carried the ball six times, scored three touchdowns with runs of 7, 15 and 5 yards. Defensive back Quinton Tezeno took a direct snap on a wildcat play and scored from 24 yards out. Ra’Shon McDonald scored six on a 31-yard pass from Tezeno. Running back Abear Simien was the work horse for the night tearing through the Hawk defense for 159 yards on seven carries and one touchdown. “We’ve had to play a lot of back-ups

HJ’s quarterback Jared Gieseke was picked off twice by the Mustang secondary, one by senior Taywaun Lucas and one by senior DeCarlos Renfro.

Sad situation in Happy Valley


It seems like whenever one thinks of a college football program that’s squeaky clean, the name Penn State quickly comes to the forefront. The Nittany Lions and their famed head coach Joe Paterno are what college football is all about. Or at least it has been for the last half century until last weekend when allegations of an explosive child-sex abuse scandal related to former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky stunned the college football world. Sandusky, 67, was arrested Saturday and released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts. By late Sunday night two top Penn State officials charged with covering up the incidents that reportedly occurred on campus back in 2002 stepped down after an emergency meeting of the university’s Board of Trustees. According to Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley requested to be placed on administrative leave so he could devote the time needed to defend himself against perjury and other charges, university President Graham Spanier said. Gary Schultz, vice-president for finance and business, will step down and go back into retirement, Spanier said. However, resignations of Paterno and Spanier weren’t discussed at the meeting, which was arranged Sunday and lasted two hours, university spokesman Bill Mahon said. Curley and Schultz were charged Saturday after a grand jury investigation of Sandusky, who has been charged with sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years. Sandusky was once considered Paterno’s heir apparent, retired in 1999 but continued to use the school’s facilities for his work with The Second Mile, a foundation he established to help at-risk kids. Curley and Schultz were accused of failing to alert police, as required by state law, of their investigations into the allegations. “This is a case about a sexual predator that used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys,” state attorney General Linda Kelly said Saturday. Paterno, who last week became the college football coach with the most wins in Division I history, wasn’t charged, and the grand jury report didn’t appear to implicate him in wrongdoing. According to in a statement issued Sunday night Paterno said he was shocked, saddened and as surprised as everyone else to hear of the charges.

“If this is true, we were all fooled along with scores of professionals trained in such things, and we grieve for the victims and their families. They are in our prayers,” Paterno said in a statement issued by his son, Scott. Under Paterno’s four-decades-andcounting stewardship, the Nittany Lions became a bedrock in the college game. Fans packed the stadium in State College, a campus routinely ranked among America’s best places to live and nicknamed Happy Valley. Paterno’s teams were revered for both winning games—including two national championships—and largely steering clear of trouble. As head football coach, Paterno has spent years cultivating a reputation for putting integrity ahead of modern college-sports economics. Sandusky, whose defenses were usually anchored by tough-guy linebackers— hence the moniker “Linebacker U.”--spent three decades at the school. He drew up the defenses for the Nittany Lions’ national title teams in 1982 and 1986. The charges against him cover the period from 1994 to 2009. The allegations against Sandusky, who started The Second Mile in 1977, range from sexual advances to touching and oral and anal sex. The young men testified before a state grand jury that they were in their early teens when some of the abuse occurred. There is evidence even younger children may have been victimized. In a statement, The Second Mile said that to “our knowledge, all the alleged incidents occurred outside of our programs and events.” The group said it was never made aware of the allegations against Sandusky in the grand jury report. There also reportedly is a faction in the State College vicinity that is calling for Paterno to resign because he didn’t confront Sandusky or do enough when made aware of the situation, including state police commissioner Frank Noonan. But as soon as a graduate assistant personally told Paterno about the Sandusky incident, Paterno immediately followed the chain of command and went to Athletic Director Tim Curley and repeated to him what the graduate assistant had told him. As far as this Korner is concerned, Paterno fulfilled his obligation in the scenario by turning the matter over to the university officials. Their failure to act shouldn’t be a reflection on Paterno, but it certainly puts a black eye on Penn State


KWICKIES…There won’t be many college football games that featured smashmouth football like the one between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama Saturday night. Despite the fact the Bayou Bengals were a five-point under-dog, they played like the No. 1 team they are and came up a 9-6 overtime winner without a single touchdown being scored. And speaking of the rankings, LSU maintained its No. 1 status in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 College Football Poll, No. 2 Oklahoma State and No. 3 Stanford each moved up one place while Alabama slipped down to No. 4. No. 5 Boise State, No. 6 Oregon, No. 7 Oklahoma and No. 8 Arkansas remained the same from last week while No. 9 Clemson and No. 10 Virginia Tech each jumped two notches from last week. Undefeated University of Houston came up three places to No. 11 while the Texas Longhorns returned to the Top 25 as No.21 this week. Former West Orange-Stark standout wide receiver Mark Roberts is getting plenty of playing time as a true freshman with the undefeated (9-0) and No. 11-ranked University of Houston Cougars. Roberts caught one pass for 58 yards in the Coogs’ 56-13 drubbing of UAB Saturday in Birmingham, AL. Another former WO-S Mustang, Earl Thomas, led the Seattle Seahawks with eight tackles Sunday in their 23-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington. The game showed how inept the Seahawks’ offense is with Tarvaris Jackson at quarterback. Why Seattle didn’t try to keep veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck is beyond me. With Missouri officially being welcomed to the Southeastern Conference, don’t be surprised if college football’s oldest traditional rivalry west of the Mississippi River—Missouri vs. Kansas-- comes to a screeching halt. The two teams first met on the football field in 1891. JUST BETWEEN US…The Houston Texans came through with still another impressive victory Sunday when they overwhelmed the Cleveland Browns 3012 to move three games over .500 for the first time in the franchise’s history with their 6-3 record. The Texans also maintained their hold on first place in the AFC South Division over the Tennessee Titans (4-4). A lot of credit must go to Orange native Wade Phillips, the Texans’ first-year defensive coordinator, whose team is surrendering just over 17 points per game. Houston travels to Tampa Bay Sunday before having its well-deserved bye week.

The Bridge City Cardinal defense led by Tyler Roberts stops Orangefield in Bayou Bowl action. RECORD PHOTOS: Mark Dunn

Cardinals head into playoffs the touchdown, on a four yard score. After Faulk’s PAT, the score was 21-0 with 5:21 left in the third. The defense stiffened up again, taking the ball back on downs, allowing for another scoring drive for the Cardinals. Clark added another big run, this time finding the end zone with a 51 yard TD run. With 15 seconds left in the third, Faulk made it 28-0. The Cardinals would put their final scoring drive together after another defensive stand, getting the ball back on downs. With 4:43 left to play in the game Menard would score his fourth rushing touchdown of the game, an 11 yard run, bringing the final score to 34-0. The defense would keep their shutout intact, taking the ball back on downs. Orangefield would get the ball back on a fumble, but Tyler Roberts would make sure the shutout stood, when he picked off a pass late in the game. Bridge City would run out the clock for the victory. Matt Menard had another huge day with 150 yard rushing on 21 carries and 4 touchdown. He was also 6 for 10 in the passing department for 68 yards. Hunter Clark had 174 yard rushing on

11 totes and a touchdown. Ashton Hunter had 16 yards on 4 carries, and Tyler Robert had 1 carry for 5 yards. In the receiving department, Tanner Cervenka had three catches for 32 yards. Cameron Dishon had 2 catches for 29 yards and Roberts had 1 catch for 7 yards. There are a lot of teams that don’t make it to the playoffs. Let take advantage of this time and back our Cardinals.

fourth and long play, the ‘Cats kicked the ball. On the first play for the cards, Menard carried the ball for a gain of seven yards. On the second and three play Menard handed the ball to Hunter Clark. Clark evaded several Bobcat tacklers and made a 55 yard run to the 16 yard line. On the next play Tyler Roberts made a run up the middle and scored. Unfortunately there was a flag on the play. Holding was the call and the ball was brought back to the 40 yard line with 7:40 on the clock. This was only the second penalty of the night and the first for the Cardinals. The Cardinals shook off the penalty and five plays later Menard scored his third touchdown. Daniel Faulk boot the ball across the cross members and the score was 21-0 with 5:21 on the clock. Starting on the 35 yard line the Bobcats fought hard, but were just held back by the Cardinal defense. After eight plays they lost possession and the Cardinals started their play on the 29 yard line. With less than a minute remaining in the quarter, Menard handed the ball to Clark and Clark dashed across the goal for the fourth touchdown. Faulk made his fourth PAT and put the score at 28-0. With 15 seconds of play left in the third quarter, the Bobcats took possession on the 50 yard line. In the beginning of the fourth quarter, Wiley carried the ball for a gain of four yards. Watkins made a first down four plays later. A play later Ackerman completed a pass to Mason Sonnier for a first down. On the first and ten play Jakob Brown made a run to the left side and was blasted by Dylan Sams of the Cardinal defense. The hit was so intense that Brown was taken out for the remainder of the game. Needing 14 yards for a first down and on the Cardinal 36 yard line, Ackerman tried a pass. Hubbard of the Cards tipped the ball away and the Cardinals took over the ball. In seven plays Menard took the ball across the goal from the 11 yard line for his fourth touchdown. The PAT went wide to the right and the score was 34-0 with 4:43 left in the game. On the Bobcats first play after the tackle two exuberant Cardinals jumped together and bumped chests. The officials blew whistles and threw flags and penalized the Cards five yards for the action. After failing to make a first down, the ball went to the Cards. On the third down play the Cards fumbled and the Bobcats recovered. With 56 seconds of play left in the game a pass was intercepted to give the Cardinals possession. The Cardinals let the clock run out and another Bayou Bowl was history with a final score of 34-0, Cardinals.

I was chasing my windblown cap across the parking lot at the public boat launch on Simmons Drive Sunday evening when K.T. Lejeune and a friend idled up to the bulkhead. By the time his fishing partner backed their truck down the ramp I had finally caught up with my cap and was waiting to winch their boat back on the trailer. The Louisiana anglers were strapping everything down for their trip back across the river when K.T. called me over to look at their catch. While they were obviously pleased with their effort in the blustery wind, with the exception of a beautiful trout in the five pound class, I was not surprised that they had limited on both trout and redfish. “We caught every one of these fish right around that bend,” said K.T. pointing in a northerly direction from the launch. “What is really crazy is that we were bass fishing and we ain’t caught the first bass yet!” Even that statement didn’t surprise me as the salinity level is so high in the river that local anglers have been catching trout, reds, and flounder above Interstate 10 since early summer. The surprise came, however, when he held up one of his rods to show me what they caught their fish on. Every rod in the boat had a Whacky worm tied on the business end and there were used up worms lying all over the floor of the boat. “The red fish don’t mess your worms up too bad, “he said, “but those trout tear up a worm every time they bite it with those big teeth.” I whole heartedly agreed with his assessment, but I was still trying to process the whole Whacky worm thing.

I have just worn redfish out in the marsh and up in the bayous with a Whacky worm over the years, but the few trout I ever caught on one were just an accident. The limiting factor in opting to fish the Whacky worm is that you aren’t going to cover much territory and if the fish are deeper than six feet, things really slow down. Other than that……Why not? K.T. did add before they drove away that they found the fish chasing shrimp next to the shoreline.“I think we could have caught them on any lure,” he stated with conviction, “but we just never took the time to find out!” While on the subject of trout and aluminum boats, it seems as though I am shocked at least once or twice a day at the lack of respect accorded aluminum boat owners by some folks running larger bay boats. For the most part, the only place and time this abuse takes place is in the open lake when a group of screeching gulls can apparently induce temporary insanity. The same bay boat operator that will drive out of his way to hunt another flock of birds should another bay boat already be on the scene will run right over the top of an aluminum boat as if it were a mirage. It is almost as if the small boat owners automatically relinquish their right to being treated with any courteousy once they leave the river or bayous. I recently asked Johnny Cormier if I was just over reacting being on the water every day and he just shook his head and laughed. Both Johnny and Adam Jaynes scout in their aluminum boats when they aren’t guiding in their center consoles and Johnny pointed out

that I couldn’t appreciate how bad it really is until I was the one in the smaller boat. “I have it happen to me all the time,” said Cormier, “and you are not wrong in thinking that you get no respect once you are in the open lake.” “I think the thing that makes me the maddest,” he added, “is when a larger boat will run right in on top of me when I am already working some birds and then apologize and say that they didn’t know it was me.” The obvious question that prompts is, “Does that mean if it hadn’t been Johnny it would have been okay to do it to someone they didn’t know?” The bite under the birds will only continue to improve until the cold of winter sets in and, regardless of the size of your rig, respecting other fishermen will serve you well. Always look for another flock of gulls before opting to move in on a flock already occupied by another angler regardless of the size of their boat. When you are already on fish under the birds, welcome fishermen that are courteous enough to shut down and close the gap on their troll motor. Even if they do approach too quickly and scatter the fish, assume at least once that they just didn’t realize that they had done anything wrong. Believe it or not, there are a lot of folks that welcome and appreciate pointers from experienced fishermen far more than a string of ugly words or a glare. You will discover time and again in the future that folks that you helped rather than chastised will prove to be a priceless resource both on and off the water. Acting ugly doesn’t make catching fish any easier!

Bucks, ducks make season official CAPT. CHUCK UZZLE

For The Record

It’s official, hunting season in Texas is now 100 percent open and the results so far

have been outstanding. South zone duck and goose hunters have been covered up with birds along coastal marshes for the last two weeks while deer hunters all over the state have been doing about average for this early in the year. Local deer hunters in east Texas are reporting sporadic rutting activity due to the warmer temperatures that have been present. Overall success rates have been about average according to several

lease managers I spoke with this week. Some of the best reports I have gotten have been from the lakes area, several leases near Toledo Bend have had some nice bucks taken during the past week. Almost all of the better bucks that were taken from that area were chasing does. Hunters concentrating on food plots and corn feeders have reported steady activity

The Bridge City Seventh Grade A Team defeated Orangefield Thursday 28-0 to finish the season as the undefeated District Champs. The team is coached by Matt Hanson and Lee Legate. Pictured is the Bridge City 7th Grade Football Team: Byron Trahan QB/DB, Tre Bernard WR/DB, Tyler Tran WR/DB, Brandon Villa WR/DB, Kane Booth RB/LB, Blayze Holley WR/LB, Rodney Richardson WR/LB, Oscar Torres WR/DB, Taylor Graves OL/DE, Chase Boneau OL/DL, Joseph Adams OL/DL, Sean Matt OL/ DL, Alex Lara OL/DL, Jacob Mashburn OL/DL, Keegan Johnson OL/DL, Seth Green OL/DL, Zayne Trahan OL/DL, Darren Frazier OL/DL, Nick Menard OL/DL, Trevor Phariss OL/DL, Zach Honeycutt OL/ DL, Patrick Morris WR/DB, Hunter Denton WR/DB, Cody Nguyen WR/DB, Jose Sanchez K/DL, Head Coach Matt Hanson, Asst.

from either deer or hogs due to the terrible drought that has plagued the state for the last several months. Food is scarce and the easy meals offered up at feeders are hard for most animals to pass up. I continue to get some great stories and reports from local hunters and the opening weekend appears to go in favor of the lady hunters. Dawn Stout, of Orange, sent me a couple of photos of a pair of very nice bucks taken in Eden, Texas by her and fellow hunter Michelle Wales of Vidor. Michelle owns the company which markets products for lady hunters such as scent free products like soaps and shampoo as well as other things the well prepared lady hunter should not be without. Both Michelle and Dawn took their bucks with archery gear so you know these ladies are serious hunters. Congrats to both on great deer. North zone duck hunters have reported tough going over the weekend. Hunters all the way to Lake Fork are reporting slow hunts compared to last year at this same time. The early season cold fronts really pushed the ducks farther down the flyways this year instead of stalling them out to the north like years past. The big problem is with low water conditions on playa lakes, the birds are really concentrated in small areas. It’s truly a case of feast or famine, if you have water the hunting is terrific and if you don’t have water it’s extremely difficult. South Zone hunters continue to make due with plenty

of teal and gadwall making appearances in the decoys and filling straps. The last full moon brought another push of teal down to our area but who knows how long they will hang around. Local hunters who cross the river to hunt in Louisiana will have their first opportunity to shoot ducks this weekend as the general waterfowl season opens Saturday. Most local marshes are void of grass which will make holding birds difficult but at least we have water. Just like our neighbors to the north the lack

of water and food will certainly scatter the birds and make them a little tougher pattern. Hopefully we can get some freshwater in the system and get back to more normal. Goose hunters on the coastal prairies are reporting really good numbers of birds for this early in the season. Compared to years past most guides agree the geese are a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. The increased numbers of geese early in the season make for some superb combination hunts. Right now your chance at a limit of ducks along with a hefty strap of geese is really good if you are in the right places.

World’s smallest heart pump offers veterans new hope HOUSTON - A miniature pump, so small that it can be inserted through an artery and placed inside the heart within a few minutes, offers new hope to critically ill heart attack and heart failure patients at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of disability. Almost 700,000 people die of heart disease in the U.S. each year. The Abiomed Impella 2.5 catheter-based heart pump is considered to be the smallest heart pump in the world. The ventricular assist device replicates the natural function of the heart by assisting the heart’s main pumping chamber to drive blood through the body. “This new technology is helping us save lives by providing temporary support for patients who are experiencing advanced cardiac failure or shock in recovering from heart attack or other injury,” said David Paniagua, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.S.C.A.I., co-director, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. “The device allows the patient’s heart to rest and recover in some cases, or it can sustain the patient’s life for hours or days until a heart transplant or more permanent support device is implanted.” “We can also use this pump for high-risk, critically ill patients who need to undergo angioplasty or stenting procedures to open blocked arteries,” said Biswajit Kar, M.D., F.A.C.C., Interventional Cardiology director and also an assistant professor of Medicine-Cardiology at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). The pump is inserted through the skin in the catheterization laboratory (cath lab) via the main artery in the leg and is thread-

ed up into the left ventricle or main pumping chamber of the heart. It is a brief, minimally invasive procedure that takes the physician about ten minutes to perform. Approximately two and a half liters of blood are delivered per minute by the pump from the left ventricle into the ascending aorta, providing the heart with active support five times faster than other devices. Traditionally, treatment involves the standard intra-aortic balloon pump, also inserted with a catheter, which has been in use since the 1950s. This high-tech ventricular assist device provides a new advanced treatment option that can be implanted in the cath lab unlike most ventricle heart assist devices that require open-chest surgery to be implanted. “This innovative device can also be used to assist the heart during ablation procedures when a patient experiences a life threatening arrhythmia,” said Irakli Giorgberidze, M.D., Electrophysiology Laboratory director and assistant professor of Medicine at BCM. “It is a significant breakthrough that we can implant this cutting-edge device using a minimally invasive approach in the cath lab,” said Paniagua who is also assistant professor of Medicine at BCM. “It can pump faster and provide a much greater blood flow than the standard balloon pump.” “We strive to offer our veterans the latest and the best in the field of cardiology,” said Biykem Bozkurt, M.D., F.A.C.C, Cardiology Section chief and a professor of Medicine at BCM. “We are proud the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center has some of the best doctors in the country and offers the latest, minimally invasive alternatives for our Veterans.”

“Shrek the Musical”–lots of laughs, great performances Penny LeLeux For The Record

“Shrek” took to the stage at the Lutcher Theater Sunday afternoon and evening. As promised by Merritt David Janes, who played Lord Farquaad, there was something for everyone. Adults chuckled more than the youngsters in the audience. Janes did an amazing job as the vertically challenged Farquaad. It was hilarious to watch him dance around the stage on his knees. The appliance he had to wear really animated the character’s legs. He was over the top in his characterization. Donkey, played by André Jordan, was also an exceptional performance. At times you would swear he was channeling Eddie Murphy, who is the voice of Donkey in the movies. Princess Fiona was played by Liz Shivener, while Shrek was played by Lukas Poost. Both gave great performances. All of the vocals in the entire show were phenomenal, including Dragon, performed by Kelly Teal Goyette. It was interesting how they portrayed Dragon. It was a huge puppet controlled by four puppeteers dressed in black. The musical version of Shrek was as much fun as the movies. They did include “I’m a Believer” at the end, just like it is in the movie. After intermission, lots of Shrek ears could be seen worn by youngsters in the audience. It was a great evening at the Lutcher. Leaving the theater, long time educator and Lutcher Theater sponsor Ken Wernig could be seen with his grandchildren. “Wasn’t that great!” He exclaimed. “Lord Farquaad and the Dragon!” His face lit up with the exuberance that anyone knowing Wernig can easily picture. He would make a good Farquaad... or Donkey... with the level of animation he delivers in his daily life. Next on the marquee is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” scheduled for Nov. 20. Two shows are scheduled for 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. Go to to purchase tickets. See you at the show!

“Try Us! You Just Might Like Us!”

“Shrek the Musical”–lots of laughs, great performances Penny LeLeux For The Record “Shrek” took to the stage at the Lutcher Theater Sunday afternoon and evening. As promised by Merritt David Janes, who played Lord Farquaad, there was something for everyone. Adults chuckled more than the youngsters in the audience. Janes did an amazing job as the vertically challenged Farquaad. It was hilarious to watch him dance around the stage on his knees. The appliance he had to wear really animated the character’s legs. He was over the top in his characterization. Donkey, played by André Jordan, was also an exceptional performance. At times you would swear he was channeling Eddie Murphy, who is the voice of Donkey in the movies. Princess Fiona was played by Liz Shivener, while Shrek was played by Lukas Poost. Both gave great performances. All of the vocals in the entire show were phenomenal, including Dragon, performed by Kelly Teal Goyette.

The Record • Week of Wednesday, November 9, 2011 • 11B

It was interesting how they portrayed Dragon. It was a huge puppet controlled by four puppeteers dressed in black. The musical version of Shrek was as much fun as the movies. They did include “I’m a Believer” at the end, just like it is in the movie. After intermission, lots of Shrek ears could be seen worn by youngsters in the audience. It was a great evening at the Lutcher. Leaving the theater, long time educator and Lutcher Theater sponsor Ken Wernig could be seen with his grandchildren. “Wasn’t that great!” He exclaimed. “Lord Farquaad and the Dragon!” His face lit up with the exuberance that anyone knowing Wernig can easily picture. He would make a good Farquaad... or Donkey... with the level of animation he delivers in his daily life. Next on the marquee is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” scheduled for Nov. 20.

This will be a multi-million dollar project that will serve many uses for Orange County. I t has not been determined how much of the tax funds will be dedicated to that project. All remaining funds will be dedicated to the various projects around Orange County.
