APRIL 2011

Competitorial “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” …everyone’s heard it or said it one time or another, and it’s advice well attended. It does however, by default, imply that if it is “broke,” it needs to be fixed… or at least should be. This of course applies to a lot of things going on right now… the federal budget (and its deficit), the education system, national health care, our federal social security system, Medicare, etc, etc. They’re all enormous issues to tackle. So enormous in fact, and so long past a simple mending, that for those charged with addressing these issues, the enormity of bringing about a solution is simply crushing. I can completely relate, and even sympathize to some degree. Every time I pass through my garage and consider how badly it needs a thorough muckin’, and how daunting a task it will be… Mercy! It’s a lot easier to ignore the fact that the situation needs fixin’ and try and pass the problem off to another day. But, alas, just like the broken parts of our government, my garage problem is not going to solve itself… it needs to be fixed. But what about rodeo… team roping… barrel racing, do they need to be fixed? Well, I suppose that depends on whether or not you consider them broken. What is “broken?” Is broken when your pickup begins shifting gears strangely, or when it

quits altogether and leaves you stranded along the highway with two kids and a trailer full of horses? With hindsight, whether it be a slipping transmission or an un-fundable federal entitlement program (or the state of my garage), it’s easy to see these problems could have been more easily addressed on the front side. So, with regard to rodeo, team roping, and barrel racing, where are we? Keep in mind this is not an in-depth analysis, nor does it encompass all the solutions to the problems associated with each sport. It is however a serious attempt to shed some nononsense light on the obstacles each of these unique sports face, from an objective source… me… that will hopefully get some people thinking about fixing impending problems now. First, a look at barrel racing. It’s the easiest because it has the least problems. That’s not to say that barrel racing is moving ahead at full stride at the current time, but given the economic climate, it’s positioned about as well as could be hoped for. Like team roping, barrel racing is never going to be a spectator sport. It is, and always will be, competitor driven. Furthermore, it has a huge advantage over rodeo and team roping in that its events, comparatively speaking, carry with them a very low cost of production. The importance

of this can’t be overrated. Another advantage is that today’s barrel racing structure is one that makes getting involved in the sport relatively inexpensive and easy. Got a horse, three 55-gallon drums and a little bit of space?... you can be a barrel racer (of sorts) in about five minutes. Also helping the sport is the widely accepted and established “D” system of competition. Okay, so from a pure competition perspective, it’s a socialistic approach at best, and just plumb quirky at worst, but it works… and will continue to work. It’s a system that allows for a lot of “dollar trading” among it’s competitors… which is a crucial element to the success of contestant driven sports. The “D” system also intrinsically provides an inviting atmosphere to those looking to take up the sport, and that’s a very important advantage. Of course what is an advantage can also be a disadvantage. The downside to a sport that is produced with low overhead expense and requires a relatively low investment to get involved with, makes it highly susceptible to economic conditions. When the economy is good and cash is flowing more freely, barrel racing is good. When times get hard, the sport will feel the effects and respond negatively much faster than rodeo or team roping. This makes it more volatile, for sure, but if that’s the worst of the sport’s problems… thats not too bad. Team roping is a bigger problem. The things that give barrel racing an advantage are the same things that place the sport of team roping at a disadvantage. High production costs and a substantial initial investment to become a team roper are real

PBR’s top-ranked Oliveira wins in Arizona Party (Circle T Ranch & Rodeo). It is the second runner-up finish in the last three weeks for Proctor, who has four Top 10 finishes in the last five events. Oliveira and Proctor were the only two riders who were a perfect 4-for-4 on their bulls. Two-time PBR World Champion Chris Shivers was the leader heading into Sunday. He held the top spot going into the championship round after finishing second in Round 3 with 88.75 points on Space Chimp (Circle T Ranch & Rodeo). Shivers, however, was unable to ride Pure Smoke in the championship round, and finished third with 264.75 points.

Oliveira has 5,069.25 points in the BFTS season standings, and increased his lead over No. 2 Austin Meier to 809.75 points. Marchi is third with 4,170.5 points, while 2010 PBR Rookie of the Year Silvano Alves is fourth with 4,044.75 points. Proctor moved up to fifth place with 3,495.5 points. The next stop for the BFTS is Save Mart Center in Fresno, Califrnia, for the Table Mountain Casino Invitational on Friday and Saturday. Bull riding begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, and at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Good seats are still available at or by telephone at


(800) 745-3000. Glendale was the 10th stop on the nationally-televised BFTS, which makes 28 stops in 23 states. The season began at world-famous Madison Square Garden in New York, and culminates Oct. 26-30 in Las Vegas at the richest bull riding event in the world, the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals. The Finals is where the 2011 PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the $1 million Built Ford Tough bonus.

problems for which the sport has no simple solutions. Like barrel racing, team roping is completely contestant generated and that’s not going to change. This means that as production costs continue to increase, it’s the contestants that will have to bear the burden… there’s just no way around it. It’s when that burden becomes too great to bear, that the end is near, and that’s a fact. You don’t have to look very far for proof of this. Just a few years ago, you’ll remember that team penning was all the rage. It was a sport that had many of the advantages that barrel racing has. Namely, it was easy to become a team penner… “Got a horse? Can you saddle him? Can you get on?... Congratulations, you’re a team penner.” The killer to the sport however, was the production expense relative to the participation level. It was very hard to run enough team penners through an event to offset the production costs… and there are plenty of now bankrupt, former team penning producers to prove it. Combine high production expenses with a relatively high initial investment of contestants… in both time and money… and team roping has some problems.

of investing in the sport’s future by nurturing youth roping (which is pure expense) and being committed to providing even the most novice caliber team ropers an opportunity to compete. No question the USTRC could have taken the “money route,” and simply opted to only produce events that are profitable, but it’s a good thing they didn’t. Had they chosen that path, I’m pretty sure the sport would be in very serious trouble right now… to the extent that it may have been set back at least 20 years. Still, it’s a rough road right now for the sport of team roping, and if it’s going to survive with the continuing challenges as listed, it will most likely be the USTRC that will have to take the lead. The roping landscape will need to be viewed with a fresh perspective and everything will have

to be on the table. It’s going to require some drastic changes that will undoubtedly take some real courage and commitment to execute, but I don’t see doing nothing and hoping for the best as the answer. Rodeo, and preserving the sport for future generations, may be the biggest challenge of all. Of course it has a built-in advantage that barrel racing and team roping does not have… it IS a spectator sport. Another advantage that it has, which is often overlooked, and most certainly one of its most important (and unfortunately) disrespected assets, is its strong ties to local communities. The problem with the sport starts at the top. Unlike the USTRC that has invested a great deal in the future of the sport of team roping by being committed to promoting and encouraging the youth segment, the PRCA has never put forth any kind of real effort in that regard… and we are witnessing the result. Let’s face it, rodeo is a spectator sport dependent upon roughstock events, and those events, with few

exceptions, are young men’s games… and young men only come from one place… youth. It’s a real problem that has been creeping up on the sport for a while (and ignored) but it’s not going away. In fact, the success of the sport may very well lay with what will done about it in the future. The other serious issue with regard to rodeo is the oft taken-advantage-of, local communities that have been carrying the weight of the financial burden associated with producing their local events. Again, it’s a problem that has been steadily growing for many years, but has, as the result of tough economic conditions, really unveiled itself in recent times. The expense of producing a rodeo, whether it be at the PRCA level or amateur level seems to have been laid solely at the feet of the communities and local rodeo committees. It seems to have taken on a “wham bam, thank-you ma’am” kind of approach, with the sanctioning rodeo body and/or the stock contractor, rolling into town, taking what they can, and slipping away in the night. It’s

a problem that’s been going on for so long now, the offenders don’t even seem to think their committing an offense at all. Well, it’s time they open their eyes. With increasing frequency, all across the country, local communities are calling it quits on rodeo altogether. Sanctioning bodies, rodeo production companies, stock contractors alike best heed the warning signs. Each needs to make a comprehensive analysis of the situation and figure out a way to give more back to these communities. They have to find a way to add “value” to rodeos in ways they haven’t done before. The bottom line for these sports, particularly team roping and rodeo, is that it’s time to do something before it’s too late for something to be done. Burying our heads in the sand is not going to make the problems go away. And with that….it looks like I’ll be muckin’ out my garage this weekend.

Ropers Get Windfall at Mike Cervi, Jr. Memorial Pro Classic



n what would prove to be a preview of their big win at the San Angelo, Texas PRCA Rodeo later in the week, Colby Lovell and Cory Petska combined to win the February 23 Mike Cervi Jr. Memorial Pro Classic team roping event in Casa Grande, Arizona. Their time of 33.18 seconds on five head was seven-tenths of a second faster than the runner-up pair of Derrick Begay and Cesar de la Cruz and paid each man $11,365. Begay and de la Cruz earned $9,405, plus another $500 for finishing second to Brady Tryan and Jake Long in the fifth and final round. Coleman Proctor and Long were


third in the average (each roper could enter with two partners) to earn $7,445, and they were followed by Trevor Brazile and Walt Woodard with $5,485. There were 155 teams taking part and $84,000 in total money. George Aros, who produced the event, said the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund will receive a $12,000 check from his organization, bringing its total contribution to the JCCF through the years to more than $123,000. This was the 30th anniversary of the competition, the 10th year it has been named for Mike Cervi Jr., who died in a plane crash in 2001, and the first year that it was held at the Casa Grande Rodeo Grounds.

Lockett Wins Second TEC Title! The 2011 Timed Event Championship of The World Was Another Classic At The Lazy E Arena


n 2005, Kyle Lockett described his win of the Timed Event Championship of the World as “the best moment in my rodeo career right now.” Sunday afternoon the cowboy from Visalia, California became the seventh multi-TEC champion, winning the 2011 TEC with 308.8 seconds on 25 head for $50,000. At the TEC, each contestant is required to compete in all five timed events: tiedown roping, steer roping, heading, heeling and steer wrestling – over five rounds in three days. Each round of competition features excitement with the leaders changing after every run, with only seconds separating them.

Winning $50,000, Kyle Lockett, who also won the championship in 2005 now has a cumulative Timed Event earnings of $206,500. What was the difference in the two titles? Lockett said it was the years in between. This year, marked the third year in a row that he had led after the first go. The other two didn’t pan out for a win. This time though, he stayed steady. Lockett dropped to third on the final run of the second go, the steer roping, the 10th head of the weekend. But he never dipped below third. In fact, he regained the lead on the final run of third go, the steer roping, which is the 15th head, and he never gave it up. So the difference in the two titles, Lockett said is “It’s just good to know you can still do it.” There was also another difference in the most recent title run. In 2005, Trevor Brazile led Lockett by one-tenth of a second going into the final run of the weekend. Lockett tied his steer down in 16.6 seconds, while Brazile was 46.8 seconds. Lockett said it helped this year “having a little bit of a lead” going into the fifth round. He was actually 51.7 seconds ahead of the pack entering Sunday’s fifth round. He didn’t surrender. Actually, it was quite the opposite of 2005, as Lockett had clinched the win before he ran his last draw in the steer roping on Sunday. Jo Jo LeMond, who was second after 24 head, recorded a 51.4 in the steer roping. That left Brazile, the 14-time PRCA and six-time TEC champion, in the lead with 345.0 on 25 head. At the TEC, they give a 60-second time instead of a notime. So, since Lockett was 68 seconds ahead of Brazile, he could take a 60 and still win it. Lockett, the seventh multi-TEC champion in the event’s 27 years, has now earned $206,500 at the TEC, according to statistician Curt Robinson. Brazile of Decatur, Texas, not only earned $25,000 for second in the average, but with Sunday’s round of 48.7 on five head, posted the second fastest round of the weekend. That ran his total for the 2011 TEC to $31,000 and put him over the $600,000 mark for career TEC earnings. To earn a check in the average among the 20-man field is a prestigious accomplishment.

This event attracts the biggest names in the rodeo industry that correlates into 45 World Championship titles, in addition to thousands of fans representing 48 states from across the country! A portion of the proceeds from the 2011 Timed Event Championship will be donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The Lazy E is proud to support this institution for western preservation!

USTRC News and Notes A Word From the President, Kirk Bray I never cease to be amazed at how events happening on the other side of the world can affect us here at home, but the prices at the pump tell the story. While fuel prices are affecting all of us, some are more affected than others, and USTRC has taken a close look at what it can do to give its members the opportunities they are looking for close to home. That’s why USTRC revived its GrassRoots events that I told you about last month, and now USTRC is bringing a new look and location to the Regional Finals. First, ropers in California will be happy to know that the West Coast Regional Finals has moved to Salinas July 28-31. This is a favorite arena for ropers and the move will allow more time for ropers to earn Flex Earnings to qualify for those all-important Shoot-Out positions. (USTRC will still have an event in Paso Robles in June; however, it will become a Format 4 qualifier.) Second, USTRC has dropped the entry fees of the preliminary divisions at the West Coast Regional to $100/roper, enter three times. And, this year at all Regional Finals ropers can expect to see an increase in local publicity and sponsorship contributions. For the Gold Plus roper, you’ll be especially interested in the Regional Finals as a minimum of $10,000 will be added to the #12 Gold Plus roping at each event. A web site and the Keep looking to the USTRC SuperLooper for more information and thanks for your support. Kirk Bray USTRC. . .The Home of America’s Cowboy Sport

Here’s how you can invest your earnings: You may use a portion (increments of $100) of Available Earnings (sum of Flex Earnings and Applied Earnings) toward a Shoot-Out qualification. For example, Roper A has $1,400 in Available Earnings and Roper B has $600 in Available Earnings they can combine their $2,000 of Available Earnings to qualify for a Regional Shoot-Out entry. The same holds true for a National Shoot-Out. If Roper A has $3,500 in Available Earnings and Roper B has $2,500 in Available Earnings they can combine their $6,000 of Available Earnings to qualify for a National Shoot-Out entry. Gold Plus Shoot-Outs fall under the same guidelines. The Flex Earnings may be used to enter a Regional Shoot-Out or National ShootOut. Again, it’s your money, spend it as you see fit. Flex Earnings, not to be confused with Applied Earnings, must be used in the season they were won. Unused Applied Earnings will continue to be allowed to carry over from season to season. Applied Earnings are acquired as a result of placing at approved Sanctioned or Affiliate events whereas Shoot-Outs/Flex Earnings are not awarded. Give us your feedback.

My Cowboy Heroes

Bill Clark Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson


ill was a millionaire back when that actually meant something. He used to say, not in a bragging way, but in an encouraging way, “I reached my goal of becoming a millionaire when I was 37.” No small feat, as the date would have been 1961. He did not stop there however. Bill’s uncle, Fred, used to tell him, “Think big and leave the pack behind.” Bill never forgot those words and repeated them often. He used to say uncle Fred always went for it in a big way; broke, bankrupt and riches were cycles Fred knew about, but in the end, it was mostly riches. “It’s just as easy to go broke over a thousand dollars as it is over a million!” Fred would advise, “But the plan is to learn from your mistakes and not go broke at all.” Bill Edward Clark was born near Larned, Kansas in 1924. At the beginning of the Great Depression, the family headed west to the Galiuro Mountains of Arizona. Bill’s parents


were schoolteachers and his mother had entrepreneur fashion, Bill soon had deals landed a job there at a small one-room made with several area farmers and schoolhouse at a place whose name has long had to hire helpers to assist him in his since been erased from maps. He was the only burgeoning business. white student at the school where rancher and Once the fruit stand was going well, Bill miner children came to learn.

he was proud of the trees, most of which he had personally planted, still thriving there years later. Bill used to say, “There is opportunity everywhere; you just have to find it.” As his financial situation grew he was able to play bigger games, moving into real estate investments. “Buying is easy, it’s selling that’s the hard part,” he would say. “You have to make sure and have a plan for a property when you buy it. Don’t just buy something because it’s a good deal, what if you have to own it a while? Can it pay for itself?” Bill liked to buy farms and ranches because he understood agriculture and could always find something to do with the place until it sold. Later in life he also invested in prime land, building houses. In the late 1960s, Bill, always an adventurer, sold most of his holdings and bought an entire town in Alaska. Located near Yakutat, the small town consisted of a fish cannery, store, saloon, boarding house and a large fishing boat. Other than a few private residences, Bill owned it all. The only way in or out was by air, sea or sled dogs. It was a rough and tumble kind of frontier town straight out of a scene from the century before. Bill even told of once being thrown through the window of his own saloon! Getting his fill of Alaska after a few years, Bill moved once again to Arizona where he spent the rest of his life cattle ranching, farming, and developing real estate. He owned ranches in New Mexico and Arizona, developed land in pretty much every southwestern state including the California coast and even owned a motel in the resort town of Pinetop, Arizona for a while. Bill was constantly helping folks out; financial advice, a buck to the down and out, rides for hitchhikers and even a bible now and then were all ways he assisted others. Once when he gave financial advice not well received, he was told, “That’s not the way most people do it.” Bill responded in typical Bill fashion, “Well, let me tell you, about 10% of the people in this country make around 90% of the money…so it stands to reason that most of the people are wrong about finances most of the time! If you want good advice about money, get it from someone who knows how to make it, I mean really knows how to make it. I don’t mean someone with a good job, because a job is just a job, and with very few exceptions, jobs, even better paying ones, will never make you rich. If you want sound financial advice, talk to someone who has made themselves a lot of money!” Another thing Bill used to say a lot was, “Anybody in this country has the same opportunity as anyone else. It isn’t only the people born into privilege who make it big; actually it’s the opposite most of the time. People who use their background as an excuse will get no sympathy from me… shoot, I’m living proof, if I can make it, anybody can!” Bill was raised during the Great Depression, rode a horse to school, had parents who struggled financially and made every dime he ever had the old fashioned way; with his own two hands and his ingenuity! Having several different partners at one time or another on this project or that, Bill always advised against getting too deep into partnerships, especially with friends or family members. “You still have to have thanksgiving dinner with them no matter what happens, you know.” But the partner Bill disliked the most was his Uncle Sam. “I wouldn’t mind the government taking some of my money if they

ll-Around were helping people out with it, but they take more than their fair share and then go and give it to a bunch of lazy so and so’s who won’t even find a job and help themselves!” “Entitlement” was a cuss word to Bill. He often used the quote, “The Lord helps those who help themselves.” If he had any regrets, it would be that all those years spent making money and working so hard, he neglected family relations. Bill once said, “Looking back on it now, I can see where I wasn’t home nearly enough. My method of being a good husband and father was to make more money and buy them things; I know now that is not the best way. I could have sacrificed a few hours working to spend more time with my family and still made plenty. That’s how I would do it if I had it to do over again.” Bill would often smile when people would say things like, “There just isn’t enough time in the day” or “I don’t have enough time to get it all done.” He would reply, “Sleep is over rated. You’re probably wasting the hours between mid-night and 5am.” Then he would laugh, but there were years when he was struggling to make it where that thought held a lot of truth to him. “Sleep a few hours when you get tired and then get back at it. That’s what Edison did.” Bill shook his head in astonishment as he poured over the headlines proclaiming America’s consumer debt. “Don’t these people know you can never make it if you’re drowning in debt?” Then he would explain, “Having and wanting nicer things is the American way. It’s what I want too. But you A should never buy things that put you into debt. Save the money you have for a down payment on whatever it is and go invest it into something that will make you money instead.

Then, later on, you can buy whatever it is you wanted with the profits and still have money to make more money with!” The only acceptable debt to Bill was investment debt…and then you still need to be careful. “There were times in my life when I didn’t know how I was going to get it all covered. Somehow, though, I just kept working at it and believing I could do it and sure enough, it always worked out.” Bill Clark was definitely one of those 10th percentile who understood how money is made. He was an American Aentrepreneur, a true tale of “the dream.” Jim Olson © 2011

rizona families can read about stretching their “food dollar” on the organization’s web site Fill Your Plate In the midst of an estimated 3% to 5% increase in food prices across the board, Arizona Farm Bureau begins a series of informational articles for Arizona families about food prices. “To help our Arizona families with their food budgets, we’re running a series of articles about food prices and how to stretch your food dollar,” says Julie Murphree, spokesperson for the Arizona Farm Bureau. “Even before we do this year’s first food price survey, we’re feeling the increase in prices at the grocery store and farmers’ markets.” According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), food prices are estimated to rise anywhere from 3% to 5% while some regions of the country might experience even sharper increases. But there are strategies for families to still keep their food budgets at manageable expense levels. “The most important thing I’ve learned is to stick to the basics,” says Sharla Mortimer, chair of the Women’s Leadership Committee for Arizona Farm Bureau and a rancher with her husband, Gary, in Yavapai County. “Your dairy, eggs, various lean cuts CRX’Dof meat and other basic staples should be core items in your shopping cart. Don’t splurge on the nonessentials like pop and other unhealthy items.” Arizona Farm Bureau’s information

series on food prices can be found on its web site On the home page of Fill Your Plate look for the section on the bottom of the page called “Latest Food Price Trends.” “We plan to run the series for several weeks and will include articles that provide specific strategies for stretching your food dollar,” explains Murphree. “We’re drawing advice from economists, our Arizona farmers and ranchers and other informed sources including our own quarterly grocery marketbasket survey we do to determine food items that are up or down in price.” Adds Mortimer, “For a quick tip, always plan your menu before you shop and focus on healthy eating. Fruits and vegetables – along with whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, beans, eggs and nuts – are an important part of a healthy diet. Buying fresh produce when it’s in season costs less, while buying frozen fruits and vegetables when they’re not in season also is a smart way to stretch that dollar.” About the Arizona Farm Bureau and Food Check-Out Week: The Arizona Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving and improving the Agriculture industry through member involvement in education, political activities, programs and services.

Clinton Anderson Unveils Academy for Certified Clinicians


orld-renown clinician and horseman Clinton Anderson is offering an unprecedented opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing a career as a clinician certified under his name. This spring Clinton is introducing the Clinton Anderson Clinician Academy – an institute to turn out world-class clinicians and horsemen empowered to teach the Downunder Horsemanship Method. “The Academy is something I’ve been working on for several years and am extremely excited about as it provides a unique opportunity for horsemen and women who aspire to be among the finest instructors in the industry. The Academy will not only offer credibility to the clinician, but certification also comes with the support of Downunder Horsemanship,” Clinton says, and explains that the Academy was carefully designed to endorse and launch the careers of those who share his passion for horses and who possess a desire to help others learn the Downunder Horsemanship Method. The Academy will offer three levels of certification – Fundamentals, Advanced and Professional. Certified Clinicians will have passed an in-depth application process and completed a hands-on 14-week course taught at the Downunder Horsemanship Ranch in Stephenville, Texas for each level of certification. Academy curriculum will cover training a horse from the ground up in the Method, the theory behind the Method and an in-depth business course that will give clinicians the tools and know-how necessary to succeed in the industry. “Certified Clinicians will represent an elite group of horsemen I entrust to teach the Method and inspire horse owners while upholding my expectations and the high standards of Downunder Horsemanship,” Clinton explains. “Clinicians will have my personal stamp of approval and will not only be great horsemen, but outstanding communicators and teachers.” Interested candidates should contact Academy Coordinator, Jennie Wentworth at or 254-552-1000 x 8120 for application information.

Lost Dutchman’s

he 2011 Lost Dutchman Days Rodeo hit another milestone, chalking up another succe4ss story for this great annual event. Apache Junction, Arizona played host to this event and It still appears the contestants like to come out and play at this rodeo, despite hard times facing many across the nation. More than 500 contestants entered and the event showed the talents of many of the great rodeo hands form across the Southwest. In addition to the great contestant turnout, Cowboys and Cowgirls competed in front of packed stands on both Friday and Saturday performances the and the spectators were treated to some great rodeo action. Although weather on Sunday kept some of the spectators at home, it was nice to see a full day-sheet in all the events, including two sections of saddle

bronc and two sections of bull riding events each day; and the bareback riding was also full each day. This provided the large audiences with action packed entertainment and plenty of rodeo thrills when you add to it the timed events and specialty entertainment acts.

Briscoe’s Arena Taking On a New Venture


ew Mexico’s PBR sensation, Travis Briscoe has become a staple among PBR marketing campaigns, commercials and amid bull riding fans across the country. His talents have taken him from coast to coast and it is apparent he continues to have a passion for the sport of rodeo and bull riding in particular. Like everyone, life’s road can take turns and for Travis, he has chosen some good roads to travel which has led to several great things that are changing in his life. To begin, he is expecting to be a dad in the near future. Briscoe and his wife Jessie are expecting to have their first child this summer. For everyone out there who has been a father, you know the anticipation and excitement this can stir in your soul and the questions. Am I ready? Is everything going to be ok? What do I need to do to be prepared? These and a million other questions streak across you mind as you think about the fact that you are going to be a father. For Briscoe, these can’t be much different and one can tell that the excitement of his future is inspiring him to take a road that may allow him to stay a little closer to home. Least to say, Briscoe has been busy investing in the future of his family. If you flip a few pages of this paper you will see he has become the NMRA bull riding Director. Briscoe has been in all aspects of the sport and his insight to the sport has already helped energize the state-wide rodeo association. He has ideas to help promote bull riding at the NMRA level and push the association toward the future. In addition, Briscoe has also taken on a new business venture. Although he has dabbled bucking bulls in the past, this new venture steps out of the rodeo arena and into custom hat sales. Briscoe’s Custom Cowboy Hats is opening up at one of the places he has deep bull riding roots. Cowboys and cowgirls can order up a custom Briscoe hat at Town ‘n’ Country Feed just east of Albuquerque. Also home of T&C Arena, Briscoe spent many hours behind and inside the bucking chutes when he was younger, and he is excited to be a

part of the facility that has recently taken on new facelift with new products. Briscoe no doubt has a lot on his plate and is in a place where he feels he can start helping others enjoy the sport as much as he does. And even though he sees no future

of slowing down in the arena and says he feels better than ever, he has looked ahead and began the process of broadening his horizon. He is looking forward to working with the NMRA and the bull riders of the states as well as meeting people and friends as he works up a perfect cowboy hat fit for them at his hat shop. So stop by and visit with Briscoe, He will be glad to talk bull riding, rodeo’s, cowboy hats and in no time, babies.

PRCA Tucson Courtesy of PRCA – ProRodeo

Jarrett hits $1 million plateau with win in Tucson Ryan Jarrett certainly knows how to reach a milestone in grand fashion. The Comanche, Okla., cowboy surpassed $1 million in career earnings Feb. 27 when he closed out La Fiesta de los Vaqueros with a dominating win in the tie-down roping at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds. Jarrett placed in all four rounds, and his total time of 42.4 seconds was 1.1 seconds faster than 2004 World Champion Monty Lewis in second place. Jarrett, the 2005 world champion allaround cowboy, earned $7,949 to become the 93rd PRCA member to surpass the $1 million milestone, following team roper Cory Petska, who had made it there a day earlier at the San Angelo (Texas) Rodeo. Jarrett ended the week with $1,004,980 and Petska with $1,004,686. “It’s a great accomplishment, for sure,” Jarrett said. “Some days I never thought it would come. It is very hard to compete in both events at that top level. I’ve made more in tie-down roping, but I’ve got a top bulldogging horse (Yeller) lined up for the rest of the year through Tommy Cook, so maybe I can have some success (in that event, too).” Josh Peek, who like Jarrett is a multievent hand who competes in both steer wrestling and tie-down roping, is beginning to skew a bit more toward success in bulldogging. Exhibit A would be Tucson, where

Peek, of Pueblo, Colo., placed in all-three rounds on his way to winning the threehead average in a time of 13.6 seconds. That broke the Tucson Rodeo Grounds record shared by Rod Lyman (1999) and Olin Hannum (2006) by a full second. Bareback rider Kelly Timberman was the only competitor to win every round of his event and the average. His earnings of $9,128 were a rodeo best despite what he described as being “a little rusty” from lack of competition. “I’ve been getting the kids (from Wyoming’s Casper College) ready for their season,” Timberman told the Arizona Daily Star, “and on top of that I had (an undisclosed) surgery, and I’ve been out for six weeks. I just stayed home, got in shape and got ready for the season.” The 2004 world champion from Mills, Wyo., won the first round with an 86-point ride on Bar T Rodeo’s Red Ears and the finals with an 89-pointer on Bar T’s Oakey Robin. His 185 total points left him with a six-point edge on the two runners-up, four-time and reigning World Champion Bobby Mote and Dusty LaValley.

unny skies and warm temperatures have everyone out and about. It has been a while coming and I am happy to have the chance to get outside and get things done around the house, enjoy the longer days with my boys and get things started with them in the Jr. rodeo arena. It looks to be a fun year. Speaking of rodeos, there has been a little dirt flying around the New Mexico arenas. The NMRA has recently adopted a second source to spread the word of their association. The All-Around is the official paper of the NMRA, but they have added Rodeo News out of Colorado to their list of approved papers to run their information. Now I think this is great if you are a Colorado contestant who wants to head south to attend rodeos, and I even believe it will be good for New Mexico contestants if any of the northern cowboys and cowgirls head south to attend NMRA rodeos. More contestant’s means bigger rodeos, and makes them better in the payout area, which mean more people will enjoy the events! However, I believe in this economy, you are going to have to do more than just run your information in a second publication in hopes they will drive farther to attend your events; you are going to have to do something that really attracts their attention. What would that be? In my opinion it would be in the form of Cash! Cold-HardGreenbacks. We all need more of them. Yep. Maybe instead of every NMRA member having to ante up to see their name in another publication, the NMRA

could take that same amount of cash, add it to their Finals and see what kind of contestants they can attract from other states. I recall when I was running hard down the rodeo road, it was a big deal to make the NMRA Finals. Yeah. The bareback riding had more than 15 members and not everyone had a chance to attend the Finals. I recall my rookie year in the NMRA, I barely squeaked into the Finals, but won a pile of cash at the event. That was because there was a pile of cash to be won. At that time in NMRA history they stood out as a great amateur association because they always had a fantastic Finals event. That was because they always had lots of money added to their finals. Contestants came from Arizona, Colorado, Texas and even Utah throughout the year to compete at NMRA rodeos for a chance to make the finals and load up on cash there. Now, I hope the NMRA does well, and I could be wrong. Maybe they will draw more contestants by spreading their information around in other publications. I applaud the new board of directors for looking at new directions for the association and implementing new ideas in order to see what works outside the box. In any case, I will continue to be a strong component of the NMRA and continue to support them as they roll out the 2011 season and beyond. Until Next Time Dirt – Keep it under your feet! Ryan Davis

APRIL 2011


xperience the old West as Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc. presents the 124th annual World’s Oldest Rodeo® (WOR) at the Prescott Rodeo Grounds. Since 1888, this traditional event has occurred annually over the 4th of July (June 28-July 4) with 8 breath-taking performances. Sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), this rodeo consists of both roughstock, or judged events (bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding) and timed events (steer wrestling, tie-down and team roping, and barrel racing) during each performance. Each cowboy and cowgirl competes for either the best time or the highest score to ultimately win cash prizes and buckles. In addition, there are entertainment events

for the entire family. The WOR is ranked among the top 40 best rodeos in America and traditionally attracts the top names in the sport of rodeo from all over the U.S. Not only does the WOR draw top names in rodeo, it also has consistently been Prescott’s most anticipated event of the year, bringing thousands (over 30,000+) spectators from all over Arizona, the U.S. and even international guests. The majority of international tourists typically come from Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Australia and Spain. In 2010, the WOR received a very prestigious and deserving award from Governor Jan Brewer during the annual Governor’s Tourism Conference, special recognition honoring the impact the WOR has on Arizona’s tourism industry. In addition to the large crowds drawn to the WOR, Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc. produces Arizona’s second largest parade over the 4th of July weekend with crowds estimated over 40,000 who jam

the streets of downtown Prescott. 2010 was a strong year for the WOR, with record-breaking attendance that goes down as another major accomplishment for this small non-profit organization. The extreme sport of rodeo offers a unique and modern competition unlike any other among frontier towns all over the West and becomes the most anticipated event of the year in each respective community. Although rodeo is fascinating for many, it too has many notable historical factsrodeo comes directly from a working lifestyle-a way of life for many-that started as the everyday chores of working ranches on the great plains of the American West and the original source of beef for the growing mining community of Prescott; chores that would eventually evolve into the unique rodeo events that many enjoy today. The early beginnings of rodeo have been traced back to the ranches of the early

Allegiant Air Becomes Official Airline Of PRCA The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association has entered into a partnership with Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Company and its subsidiary, Allegiant Air. The partnership recognizes the low-cost, high efficiency, all-jet passenger airline as the Official Airline of the PRCA and the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and includes a number of promotional opportunities for members and fans alike. “Given that the majority of our membership and fan base reside in rural America, this partnership is a perfect fit as an affordable travel option,” said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “Allegiant’s commitment to ProRodeo will have a substantial impact from our top-tier rodeos to the circuit rodeos, which truly shows the marketing efficacy of this sport.” Allegiant’s focus is to connect travelers from America’s favorite small to mid-level cities with non-stop service to world-class destinations like Las Vegas. Allegiant provides a great travel experience with great value and without all the hassle. “We are honored to partner with and support the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association,” said Allegiant CEO and Chairman Maurice J. Gallagher. “This partnership will be very popular with our customers, as many of them are big ProRodeo fans.” Allegiant Air will also serve as the Official Airline of the Seminole Hard Rock

Xtreme Bulls Tour, presented by B&W Trailer Hitches, and the Dodge circuit system. It will partner individually with a number of select rodeos. Throughout the year, ProRodeo fans will have opportunities to win round-trip tickets on Allegiant in a variety of sweepstakes and promotions.

Wrangler National Finals Rodeo to have first matinee performance since 2005 The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, scheduled for Dec. 1-10 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, will have its first matinee performance since 2005. The Sunday, Dec. 4, performance will start at 12:45 p.m. (PT) to accommodate the running of the Rock ’n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half Marathon at night under the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. All other performances of the rodeo will start at 6:45 p.m. Following the Dec. 4 performance, Las Vegas Events will work closely with city and county officials and the hotel properties to ensure that NFR attendees have access to the resort corridor. The NFR will continue to offer complimentary shuttle bus service, with exclusive access to Las Vegas Boulevard immediately after the rodeo. Full shuttle bus routes and comprehensive travel guides will be announced at a later date. Each year, the NFR features the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer

wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, bull riding and barrel racing. Known as the richest and most prestigious rodeo in the world, the Wrangler NFR will celebrate its 27th year in Las Vegas. Additional information about the NFR can be found at

after the rodeo in Odessa, Texas. Brother was taken to Texas A&M University, where doctors put in a plate and six screws to stabilize the leg. Feild’s ride overshadowed a world-record rematch between Tilden Hooper and Classic Pro Rodeo’s Big Tex. After combining for 94 points last summer in Silver City, N.M., Hooper went for 89 points and second place.

Feild’s Record Ride Highlights Finals In San Antonio

RodeoLegend Passes

Bareback rider Kaycee Feild knew he had the potential for something special on JK Rodeo’s Multi-Chem Brother in the short round at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, a Gold rodeo on the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour presented by Justin Boots. The result was nothing short of spectacular. Feild set an arena record with 93 points – one shy of the PRCA world record – to win the round and the San Antonio title. Feild consulted Jessy Davis (the previous San Antonio record holder) about the horse and was excited to hear that Davis had already put up two scores in the 90s on him. “(Davis) told me that all I needed to worry about was being 90,” Feild said. “So, I was going to bear down and go for the win, and it turned out pretty well.” As Feild took a victory lap around the arena, each section of the AT&T Center stood and applauded him for his efforts, an experience that put a big smile on the 23year-old’s face. “Man, that’s pretty awesome,” Feild said. “I don’t like being in front of an audience, but I’d like to do that again. That was pretty neat.” The ride also marked a return to prominence for Brother, who was making his fourth trip out after missing a year of action due to a right front pastern joint injury (located above the hoof) sustained

Phil Stadtler, a former PRCA timedevent cowboy and a legendary California cattle rancher, died March 10 at his home in Hilmar, California. He was 90. Stadtler was a top steer wrestler and team roper before retiring from rodeo competition to concentrate on his multiple business interests, including his 410-acre ranch. He once drove 261,000 head of cattle out of Mexico in a single year. The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum presented Stadtler with the Chester A. Reynolds Award in 2004, recognizing him as an individual whose lifestyle and traditions epitomize that of the American cowboy. Stadtler was a founding member of the Oakdale Cowboy Museum … In keeping with its tradition of environmentally friendly initiatives, Rodeo Austin unveiled a largescale lighting renovation March 12 which will provide four times the illumination to Luedecke Arena while reducing energy consumption by as much as 40 percent … An 80-acre parcel of land owned by Black Hills Power has been proposed as the site for a new arena for the Gillette (Wyo.) College rodeo teams, and the Gillette city council has agreed to assist in negotiations between the school and power company … San Angelo, Texas, city officials are estimating that last month’s San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo had an economic impact on the community of $30 million.

PBR opens new restaurant/bar in Baltimore on Friday Charm City is third location, joining Kansas City, Las Vegas The Professional Bull Riders, in association with Power Plant Live! and The Cordish Companies, is excited to announce the grand opening of the newest PBR-themed restaurant and bar in Baltimore on Friday, March 5. PBR Baltimore will serve as the cornerstone tenant of a series of renovations and expansions of the restaurant and entertainment district just north of the Inner Harbor. Baltimore becomes the third themed location for PBR. The PBR Sky Bar opened in Kansas City in 2009, and the PBR Rock Bar in Las Vegas celebrated its opening in conjunction with the 2010 Built Ford Tough World Finals. “PBR is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing sports, selling out arenas from Madison Square Garden to Las Vegas. We love giving our fans the opportunity to interact with our brand in a fun and engaging way that stays in our markets 365 days a year,” said PBR President and COO Sean Gleason. “Our goal with the PBR club is to create a concept that captures not only the PBR’s electricity, but also the camaraderie that exists at our events. We can’t wait to bring the excitement and popularity of the PBR to Baltimore.” Located on the second floor of Power Plant

Live!, the Baltimore location is 10,000 square feet with a “cool country” design by Knauer Design of Chicago. It will have an outdoor deck, overlooking the district’s main outdoor stage, two bars with over 150 feet of service space, and a large dance floor with state-ofthe-art sound and lights. The PBR Built Ford Tough Series features the Top 40 bull riders in the world competing each week against the best bucking bulls. The BFTS crisscrosses the United States, making 28 stops in 23 states. The season began at world-famous Madison Square Garden in New York on Jan. 7-9. It all culminates Oct. 26-30 in Las Vegas at the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals, where the 2011 PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the $1 million Built Ford Tough bonus. The PBR is the world’s premier bull riding organization, awarding more than $100 million in prize money since it began in 1992. More than 20 riders have reached $1 million in career earnings led by Justin McBride with $5.5 million − the most of any western-sports athlete in history. Each of the last six years the PBR has had 20 or more riders earn $100,000. The BFTS is televised in HD each week on VERSUS with select events broadcast on NBC and CBS. The telecasts are produced for the PBR by David Neal Productions, a Los Angelesbased production company led by 30-time Emmy® Award winner and Peabody Award winner David Neal, who serves as executive producer and creative lead.

Letter to the members of the New Mexico Rodeo Association from John Adams, NMRA President. NMRA Members: Well…. March is here which brings about calving season so I have been sticking pretty close to home these days. The NMRA board has been very active in trying to put the finishing touches on our two new programs for this year and once again they have done a great job. I am very happy to announce that Ranch Bronc Riding is now a standard event in the NMRA. Jeb Loney is the director over this event so if you have any questions it would be a good idea to call him. I will be happy to talk with you about this new event however Jeb is vastly more knowledgeable than I am. In fact, I just this week learned that there are actually people out there that have attempted to put sticky substances on their butts in order to help them stay on; I know this because we had to make a rule to address that issue! That struck me as being really funny, but as I said I am calving so I’m not getting a lot of sleep these days. Ranch Bronc Riding is an optional event for rodeo committees as is the added money; however I encourage all committees to give this idea a chance. This event is gaining

popularity nation wide and the fans really like it. Ranch Bronc Riders can now qualify for the NMRA finals and we will, crown a year end champion. The other significant move made by the NMRA board is the adoption of the “NMRA Rookie Program”. “Bulls, Bares and Broncs”, all for the younger or less polished contestants. Those of you interested now have a chance to earn a trip to the NMRA finals and carry the title of “NMRA Champion”. The Rookie Program is also optional for rodeo committees but here again I encourage each and every rodeo committee to evaluate your youth events at your rodeo and give these young people an opportunity to learn and compete right alongside the open guys. Your fans will love it and you can feel good about the fact that you are being proactive in preserving and enhancing young people and the sport of rodeo in New Mexico. Now I know that some of you are saying “well that’s great but what are they doing for those of us that have been around awhile”. The answer is “plenty”. Unfortunately I am running out of space so you will have to wait until next month to hear about some of those things. I will give you a hint though. Enter twice?? Happy Trails John Adams NMRA President

Membership Has It’s Priviledges In 2011 the NMRA entry system will be a preference draw. Contestants will no longer be tied to their phones on entry night trying to enter into the performance of their choice. NMRA members and members of co-sanctioning associations that guarantee their entry fees will be able to fax or email entries in one week prior to the phone entry night. Check out the entry page on the NMRA web site: NMRA members and members of co-sanctioning associations will also receive a text message and/or email after the closing of entries that informs them what performance or slack they drew up in and what position in that performance or slack. Non-members or members of associations that do not guarantee their fees will have to phone in on entry night and pay with a credit card. Their credit card will be processed that night. Nonmembers will not receive a text/email that informs them when they have drawn up. They will need to check the day sheets posted on the NMRA web site. The NMRA is looking forward to the 2011 rodeo season and anticipates that this entry process will make entering easier and more efficient.

Finals Spring Weekend! Sunshine and smiles were out in force at New Mexico District One’s super spring district finals weekend in Farmington, NM. One of the reasons for the good spirits came from over $65,000 in cash and prizes handout out over the three-day event. Friday night was filled with fun and laughter with a pole bending jackpot, Senior’s First Go, Aged Horse barrels, boot race and our popular dog races. Saturday morning saw 105 members in the finals open, 34 youth and 18 seniors with Falena Dale defending her win last year and running the fastest time of the weekend with a 17.0. She was the big money winner over the weekend taking home nearly $2300! Other finals buckle winners were Geneva Tsoukalarkis, Terri Taylor and Renee Baird. Youth winners were Baillie Wiseman, Alice Pack, Kayla Whisenhunt and Meygan McMillian.. Senior winners were Freda Johnson, Sherri Trujillo, Shaun Woods, and Sherri Trujillo again! Team 5 walked away with $111 each regardless of their time and this is a fun tradition that gets everyone rooting for each other. Year-end open winners got custom handmade saddles built especially for NM-1 by Sonny’s Saddlery in Aztec, NM and youth winners drew for a handmade saddle or 32” flat screen TV. A huge thanks goes to Williams Company, Sonny Peevey and David and Leanne Wolfe who sponsored youth saddles. Custom art work, luggage sets, breast collar and headstall sets, headstalls, blankets, video cameras, halters, leg boots, tack and other prizes were awarded to 7th in the open and 4th in the youth. Sherri Trujillo won the Senior Saddle by running only 0.001 off her first time. Taking home open saddles were Falena Dale, Kora Lepich, Terri Taylor and Renee Baird in the open and year end youth winners were Amanda Clawson, Kayla Whisenhunt,

Naelyn Doyle, all winning for the second straight year in the same division, and Delaney Gonzales. Probably the most excited member winning a saddle was Alissa Burson, who won the incentive saddle. The year-end Senior winners were Jeannie Roberts, Kathy Price, Noreen Canada and Trudy Dean whom all got beautiful breastcollars. Charmaine Talbot was named Rookie of the Year and we recognized the many helpers throughout the year that makes our district a great place to be. This was the last year the Cibola racers were with us and they will be missed and we

wish them the best of luck as they change districts to save on gas! Saturday night’s $2500 added 4D race saw 136 open, 38 youth and 20 senior entries with Falena Dale winning the 1D with a 17.0 and Tamy Jaramillo, Arianna Sanchez and Renee Baird winning the other open divisions. Josh Carpenter gave away a free breeding to his great stud Magnum Effort and Willy Jim was the lucky winner. On Sunday the time change spurred coffee sales and we had 140 open, 45 youth and 18 senior entries come and run for $2500 added money. Alecia Sandoval ran the

APRIL 2011

Vaqueros in Tucson, Ariz. All totaled the Victoria, Texas, cowgirl cashed checks worth $19,359 to extend her lead in the WPRA NFR standings. She leads the way with $62,543 in 2011 earnings. “Anytime you can have over $61,000 won before Houston, it’s pretty incredible,” said Pozzi about her 2011 season thus far. Pozzi aboard her palomino gelding Yeah Hes Firen, by WPRA PESI stallion Alive N Firen out of Splendid Discovery, were definitely a force to be reckoned with in February. Pozzi and Duke got things started with a seventh place finish in the first round of the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo in a time of 15.04 seconds. Three-time and reigning world champion Sherry Cervi won the first round in a time of 14.83 seconds. Unlike most rodeos where there is one venue, in San Angelo the first round competition is held at Spur Arena with the second round and finals taking place at the San Angelo Coliseum. Therefore after a venue change, Pozzi and Duke turned in a lightning fast time of 14.28 seconds to lead all barrel races in the second round. With a spot secured in the finals in San Angelo the duo headed west for the Tucson Rodeo. They picked up where they left off winning the first and second rounds in Tucson with times of 17.46 and 17.35 seconds, respectively putting them in the driver’s seat for the average title. With things looking bright in Tucson, Pozzi and Duke headed back to San Angelo for the final round onA Saturday night. They left the crowd talking after stopping the clock in a rodeo best 14.10 seconds. Their closest competitor in the

final round was Callie Chamberlain with a 14.31. With the final round win, Pozzi picked up her second straight average title in San Angelo with a total time of 43.42 seconds, to outdistance Brenda Mays with a 43.80. It was then time to get back in the truck for the all-night drive back to Tucson for the final round on Sunday afternoon. As they drove into town they were welcomed with flakes of snow, which quickly gave way to sunshine prior to the start of the final round. Pozzi stopped the clock in 17.40 seconds, which was good for third in the round which was won by California’s Christina Richman with a 17.30-second run. However, for Richman it was too little too late with Pozzi finishing atop the leaderboard with a three run total of 52.21 seconds to complete her whirlwind weekend. Richman and Utah’s Tracee Young finished in a tie for second with times of 53.06 seconds.

2010 when Cervi set a new arena record with a 14.59-second run. Jane Melby, who competed in the first Super Series, has the fastest time of the 2011 competition with a 14.03-second run, which she made on opening night. Two-time Wrangler NFR average champion Jill Moody finished second to Cervi in the first round of Super Series II in a time of 14.57 seconds. Cervi and Stingray - a product of PESI stallion PC Frenchmans Hayday “Dinero” owned by Cervi’s father Mel Potter and out of Miss Meter Jet, sister to Hawk - sped things up in the second round finishing in a time of 14.30 seconds. 2009 WPRA Rookie of the Year Kelli Tolbert was second in the round with a time of 14.44 seconds. On Sunday afternoon (March 6) Cervi went three for three stopping the clock in a time of 14.45 seconds to win the third round followed by Moody with a 14.57-second run. Cervi would easily win the average in a time of 43.06 seconds with Moody second in 43.83 seconds. All totaled Cervi added Cervi Dominates Super Series II $10,000 to her 2011 earnings and will be at RodeoHouston looking to add more when she returns to Reliant Stadium on March 16 for the first by Ann Bleiker semifinal round.

Find The All-Around at These Locations by Glenda Price



y father left his parents’ Texas home at age 14 with thirty-six cents in his pocket. He became a cowboy, one of the best in the business, and he never moved back in with his parents and eight siblings. Actually, he never went back for a visit, either, until he was 32 years old. My brother and I both moved out of our parents’ home upon high school graduation. They didn’t throw us out, we just left. That was the expected action Nowadays I see children moving out, then back in, then back out of their parents’ homes. The excuses are: “We can’t afford the rent on a place of our own,” or “We need help with our girlfriend/boyfriend expenses.” Really!! My parents/grandparents never would have allowed such behavior. Psychologist Jeffrey Arnett of Clark University in Massachusetts was quoted in this week’s “Sage magazine” in the Albuquerque Journal as arguing for a new developmental phase on the way to adulthood called “emerging adulthood.” When I was growing up the “emerging adulthood” phase began with puberty – or sooner. By then children had been taught at least to recognize adult behavior. The only problem I see is those children haven’t learned to lie, so they tell the truth – no matter what the fallout. The old adage says, “If you want a truthful answer ask a child,” — and that’s why. I have another: “If you want a truthful answer, ask a cowboy.” He has no reason to lie, and he has given whatever the subject is

a great deal of thought while out among the animals and living in solitude, probably at a line camp on one of the big ranch outfits. Solitude, I’ve noticed, is valued most by those who never have lived that way. English teachers/professors are fond of Henry David Thoreau. (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862). He was not a cowboy, but he chose to live in solitude — for a little more than two years. He built a one-room house on land owned by his friend, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and began his sojourn July 4, 1845. The story goes that he spent less than thirty dollars to build the cabin, using borrowed tools, and he lived on twentyseven cents a week. A small lake called Walden Pond was nearby, and the pond was surrounded by one of the few surviving woodlands in that heavily farmed area. As I checked further, I learned he had friends who brought things like food to him, though he did eat squirrel now and then. We have a friend, Bob, who ended up in one of those English literature classes that brags on Thoreau. Bob was not impressed with Thoreau’s degree from Harvard, and when he finished reading “Walden” and the professor asked for comments, he had a couple. He stood and said, “I think this guy is a lazy bum. He figured out a way to get by without working a lick, and to have his friends take care of him.” The professor, of course, was scandalized. How dare this cowboy put down that famous philosopher!
