Luling Council approves final dam payment

By STEWART FRAZIER
news@gonzalescannon.com

LULING The Luling


city council took some major steps towards the coming year during a brief, yet
business-filled,
meeting
last Thursday night. There
were some points of finalization, such as payments
on the Zedler Mill project,
and others concerning the
future, such as the reappointment of numerous
members of Boards and
Commissions that serve
the city.
Things got underway
with the approval of the
November meetings min-

Luling
utes as well as the accounts
payable for the month.
Then council members
decided to reappoint current Planning and Zone
Commission
members
CJ Watts, Raymond McGlothlin, and Rita Moore
for two-year terms. They
reappointed Library advisory board members Robin
Nickells and Mary Roberts
for two-year terms as well.
Next, the council decided to take no action on
a study of the citys electrical systems by LCRA and
moved on to approving a

payment request of $288,


071.67 for Jordon Enterprises for their work on
the Zedler Mill Dam Rehabilitaion Project. This is
the seventh overall made
so far, and the next order
of business concerned the
eighth and final payment of
$83,454.98. The board approved it as well.
After some chuckles over
a couple of good dam
puns, the council resumed
business by reappointing Board of Adjustment
members Billy Roberts,
Todd French, and Karen
Cochran, and appointing
Jimmy Lammers to serve
as the Boards first-ever al-

ternate.
The council continued
through the agenda by
awarding Lulings Depository Service Contract bid
to Citizen State Bank, effective January 1, and approving paid holidays for City
of Luling employees who
work thirty or more hours

per week.
Afterwards, the council
entered into executive session, and upon reconvening adopted an amendment to the citys wholesale
power agreement with
LCRA. This concluded the
evenings business, and the
council adjourned.

SISD board reviews survey


of highly qualified staffers
By STEWART FRAZIER
news@gonzalescannon.com

SHINER The Shiner ISD School


Board met Dec. 10 for their regular
monthly meeting despite missing a few
members. Dr. Dan Stafford, Julie Gamez,
and J.M. Rankin III were absent from the
nights proceedings.
Business got under underway with the
acceptance of Novembers meetings minutes as well as accounts payable and bills
for the month, followed by Superintendent Trey Lawrence informing the board
that SISD enrollment was back to its original total of 583 and that he expects there
may be more students after Christmas
break. Superintendent Lawrence then
moved into his monthly report, which
focused on finances and concluded with
him announcing the results of the District Elementary and UIL meets. SISD
students performed very well at the meet,
and Lawrence said he was proud of their
excellent showing.
Next, the Superintendent Lawrence presented the districts Quarterly Investment
Report, stating that everything was going as expected and budgeted. The board
moved to accept the report and moved
on to discussing possible future facilities.
Lawrence informed council members
that they will reevaluate and further discuss proposed ideas at Januarys meeting
and meet with a bond council in February
in order to finance any projects. Council
members agreed to continue considering
possibilities and priorities until their next
meeting.
The board continued on to Lawrences
report of the SISD Highly Qualified Survey. He informed the council that SISD
strives for 100% of their faculty to be considered Highly Qualified, and as of right
now only one position does not meet requirements. Lawrence said that person
has until the end of the year to change
that or the district will move on.

Shiner ISD
Moving through the agenda, the board
heard a report on the disclosure of board
training received by members for 20132014. As of the meeting, only board member Julie Gamez has exceeded the mark
for required hours, while all other members remain deficient. The board noted
that they will all exceed the requirements
before the end of the year.
Next, Lawrence presented an explanation of TASB Policy DEA Local, which
is an amendment to the previous school
policy and allows hourly district employees who work more than the maximum of
sixty hours of overtime in a year to roll
the difference over to the next. The district has been allowing employees to do so
for years now, but this proposed amendment will make it official district policy.
In their next order of business the board
decided to forgo reviewing the Superintendents District Goals until his evaluation next month. They plan to incorporate
them into the evaluative process.
As the meeting drew to a close, board
members elected to allow Shiner ISD to
accept bids for the lease of oil and gas on
1.00 acre of land located on the Joshua
Dowling Survey A-149, Lavaca County,
Texas. He will prepare and present his
finding at next months meeting so that
the board can take action on the matter.
Superintendent Lawrence then spoke
to the board about the TASB Buy Board
proposal to retrofit Shiners K-12 lighting. The project will cost $101,000, but
it will save the school around $10,000
per year. The board decided to table
the matter until next meeting, at which
time they can decide to add it to the
discussion of future facilities and upgrades.
That concluded the evenings agenda, as
the board decided to forgo executive session and adjourned the meeting.

A religious education is as vital to kids as the three Rs


Those who know me are well
aware that while I often side with
our more conservative religious
folk on many issues, I am not myself a fire-breathing evangelical.
In fact, Im an agnostic
someone who believes the basic
precepts of Christianity but has
questions about many of the fine
points of the faith that only God
Himself can answer.
You generally will see me in
church only for weddings and
funerals. And its safe to say you
will never hear me end a sentence
with ...because the Bible says so!
But if there is one item of advice Id give to parents, especially
parents of younger kids, it would
be this: take your kids to church.
And when I say take them,
that means you need to go with
them.
We all talk about how kids of
today are disrespectful toward
their teachers and parents, about
the massive disciplinary prob-

lems we have in school.
Ive heard some horrendous vulgarity issuing from the
mouths of preteens vulgarity
which is not corrected by the parent on hand. Ive seen kids with
absolutely no self-control running amok. Weve seen the stories
of the 10-year-old murderers and
12-year-old rapists and arsonists.
A lot of my political allies like
to say that our problems with the
younger generation began when
we took prayer out of our schools,
but I beg to differ: I think the real
problem is that we took prayer

out of our homes.


A Supreme Court decision removed school-sponsored prayers
from our classrooms, true but
no court made the decision to remove our society from the basic
religious values which made the
United States the bright, shining
light of mankind.
In the years since the 1960s,
weve shifted that burden of values education from the church
and home onto the public school
and the education industry
has proven well-intentioned, but
wholly inadequate to the task.
It certainly doesnt help that the
public education industry in this
country is fully in the ideological
grip of radical leftist academics.
Thus, most of their attempts to
inculate basic American values
which should have been instilled
by church and home have been
transformed into attempts to socially engineer good little Internationalist worker drones.

Dont depend on schools to


raise your children. Thats your
job. And your best friend to help
you accomplish that task responsibly isnt a child psychologist or
advice from some Hollywood celebrity its God.
I and my brothers spent our
formative years going to Sunday school, in the company of
my Mom and my grandparents.
Each of us drifted away from the
church itself as we grew older,
but the basic personal values we
learned during those early years
did not fade.
While certainly the schools we
attended held us to a high standard of conduct, it was in church
that we learned the why. It was
in the process of learning of Gods
love for us that we learned why we
should show respect for our elders, exhibit tolerance toward others, why we should share, and how
to comport ourselves in public.
I cant recall what I had for

lunch two days ago, but I can still


vividly remember that sharp rap
on my 3-year-old knuckles from
Mom after Id launched into a
rousing chorus of the Cecil the
Seasick Sea Serpent Song while
Brother Dunn was trying to tell
us about salvation.
We learned about doing unto
others as you wanted them to do
unto you. We learned those Ten
Commandments were not just a
list posted up on the wall at some
public building. We learned the
importance of forgiveness.
We learned that sin isnt just
an action its something that
takes place first in your heart.
And parents, remember this
one gem: kids crave the chance
to emulate their parents. Lead by
example, and your children will
follow. Go to church with them.
Like me, you may never find
the meaning of life but you
will help give your children a better chance for a meaningful life.

Spanish language media


furthering racial tension
Once again, a major Spanish language network has furthered racial tension in America
by asking President Obama a loaded question.
Univisions leading news commentator,
Jorge Ramos, asked Obama why he hasnt
done more to combat white privilege since
becoming president of the United States. This
racial divisive journalism is typical of Univision and other Spanish language media.
Several recent studies have shown how
left-leaning the Spanish language media is
in America. For example, a study by Media
Research Center found that the top three
U.S. domestic policy topics covered by the
Univision and Telemundo newscasts were
immigration law enforcement, immigration
legislative reform, and ObamaCare, and the
majority or 59%, of Univisions and Telemundos 667 stories reviewed on these three issues
were tilted left/liberal. Only 7% had a conservative view point, while 34% were neutral or
balanced.
It was also found that Democratic politicians and spokespeople for left-leaning/liberal advocacy organizations such as the ACLU,
National Council of La Raza and various labor organizations were quoted nearly three
times as often as Republican politicians and
spokespeople for conservative counterpart
organizations such as the Latino Partnership
for Conservative Principles, the Heritage
Foundation and the LIBRE Initiative (1,011
to 370 appearances and/or direct quotations)
on Univision and Telemundo newscasts.

Rodriguez

Executive Director of the South Texas Political Alliance.

casts, the figures are worst for Univision and


Telemundo. They rarely find anyone to give
a conservative point of view, in Spanish or in
English.
In the meantime, national Spanish language news hosts like Ramos are influencing
their viewers, mostly new immigrants, with
their biased reporting. They confuse and
mislead viewers about the role of government and the Constitution.
For example, Ramos asked Obama about
his responsibility to address white privilege.
Is it the role of the president to be a social
activist and to address social issues? What is
white privilege and isnt that a racially divisive term? Why doesnt Ramos talk about
discriminatory government policies like affirmative action, or preach proper social behavior and respect for the law (like immigration laws)?
When Ramos was called out about his
comments by Bill OReilly on Fox News, he
showed his Latino racism by describing
OReillys views as clearly right-wing. Obviously, Ramos has no problem using broad
labels for whites when he said securing the
border is right-wing, and that prioritizing
border security over immigration reform is
basically just an excuse to do nothing since
the border will never be fully impenetrable.
He concluded by saying, I think we have
to admit that there is white privilege in this
country.
Instead of encouraging assimilation into
America, Spanish language media broadcasts
its biased messages daily to almost 50 million
legal and illegal immigrants.
They are being told they are victims of
America, and encouraged to be separate in
language and culture. This is dangerous.
We must counter this brain washing in
the Spanish language media with more conservative Spanish speakers, or it could destroy our country in the next generation.

on. You must come to my assistance, so that
I may dispatch the entire German Army as a
birthday present to your Prince of Peace ... -Prayer of Gen. George S. Patton, Dec. 23, 1944

It is with Pattons plea to the Ultimate


Commanding General that Stanley
Weintraub opens his book, 11 Days in
December: Christmas at the Bulge, 1944. Its
the tale of the worst Christmas for American
soldiers since Valley Forge.
The Allied breakout from Normandy
after D-Day had convinced Gen. Dwight
Eisenhower that the war with Germany
would be over by Christmas, but as the
Allied advance slowed, the Germans planned
a counterattack through the Ardennes forest.
Behind the cover of the thick forest and the
horrid weather, the Germans scored initial
successes, creating the bulge in the Allies
line.
The troops fought in conditions that
would, in other circumstances, have been a
winter wonderland, among evergreen trees
freshly covered in snow. The inclement
weather favored the Germans, delaying
reinforcements and neutralizing Allied air
superiority. American casualties reached at
least 80,000 throughout the course of the

in unsanitary conditions and got almost


nothing to eat. They filled the time wanly
singing carols, Weintraub writes. The
Germans complained that it kept them
awake and threatened to shoot if the songs
didnt cease.
At the front, German loudspeakers
broadcast across the lines, How would you
like to die for Christmas? Americans didnt
intimidate so easily. One American soldier in
the encircled city of Bastogne commented to
another, Theyve got us surrounded -- the
poor bastards. When a German commander
demanded the surrender of the Americans at
Bastogne, Gen. Anthony McAuliffe famously
responded Nuts!
Gen. Patton, who had been looking
forward to thrusting toward the Saar region
of Germany, instead had to relieve Bastogne.
Earlier, he had badgered his chaplain to pray
for optimal conditions for an offensive. The
chaplain noted that it isnt a customary thing
among men of my profession to pray for
clear weather to kill fellow men. Undeterred,
Patton asked, Are you teaching me theology
or are you the chaplain of the Third Army?
Patton distributed a printed prayer for
good weather to his troops and made his own
appeal, noted above. The weather improved,
and Patton wrote in his diary, A clear,
cold Christmas, lovely weather for killing
Germans, which seems a bit queer seeing
Whose birthday it is. By early January, the
Germans were forced to withdraw from the
Ardennes, and the Allies were at the Rhine
by March.
One schoolmaster returning to his
blasted classroom after the battle found a
message scrawled on the blackboard from a
distraught German officer: From the ruins,
out of blood and death shall come forth a
brotherly world. Unlikely as it seemed at the
time, he was right. The Allied victory created
the predicate for a free Europe at peace.

the Editor

Skin color does not justify teenagers getting shot by cops


Dear Editor,
As a subscriber of The Cannon I have
never seen an article filled with so much
hate as yours (Where is the outrage over
black-on-black violence?, Dec. 4).
No matter the color of their skin, or the
type of music they listen to, it doesnt give
a white cop the notion to kill, or even the
clothing he chooses to wear. None of that
is a clear indication that these two black
teens are gang members that are out to

kill. Maybe they were just wearing clothing


that;s comfortable to them or maybe just
his favorite. And decided to go for a walk
with his new attire enjoying the sounds of
his music of choice. Not causing a harm
to no one. Other than to the person who
claims to be intimidated by the black man
demeanor he is the threat to us black men
& women.
Mr. Mundy do the police records show
either one of these boys being gang mem-

bers? You made a comment of these mothers being on talk shows. These women are
on these shows in order to tell the world
of the nonsense that the police or getting
away with. To answer your question of it
it was black on black crime one would be
in the court room facing prison time. Not
free to get speeding tickets in Dallas! Nor
to walk away as if nothing happened.
The appearances on the show allows
these black women to give an example of
how the cops done wrong while under
oath, to up hold the law! Theres no law
that says an police men can kill cause of a
persons clothes, music, skin color, or even
demeanor. Mr. Mundy, that is the reason
their are on talk shows. As wellas the outrage. Outrage you say. Nowadays people
are doing as they damn well please. Law
enforcement killing teens because of skin
color, clothes, and supposedly threatening
demeanor. Editors printing insults, your
absolutely right take some responsibility
for yourself, Mr. Mundy. The outrage yes
it over the fact that two young black teens
was killed becuase of their color, clothes
and demeanor. By unlawful policemen.
In summary Mr. Mundy lets reflect back
to the rights and liberties that the U.S. citizens have in todays economy. With that
being said I reckon both these black teens
had the right to dress as he wanted, to listen to whatever type of music he chose.
And yes even to carry himself as whom

ever he wanted! God bless this country we


live in.
Timothy Stovall Jr.
Bill Clement Unit
Amarillo
EDITORS NOTE: Your critique is
welcome, and we fully agree that skin
color should not be a factor in policerelated shootings, but you appear
to have mixed in facts from a third
case which Mundy did NOT address
in his column. In that case, a Florida man was convicted of shooting a
black teenager after the teen pulled
up next to his car playing loud music
and displaying threatening behavior. Michael Dunn of Satellite Beach,
Fla., was sentenced to life without
parole for the killing of Jordan Davis,
17. Neither Dunn nor George Zimmerman, who was exonerated in the
Trayvon Martin case, are or have ever
been policemen. Darren Wilson was
not indicted by a grand jury and was
found to have acted in self-defense in
the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Wilson initially stopped Brown because Brown committed a strong-arm
robbery, a robbery seen on store surveillance video. Browns juvenile records and any potential gang affiliations are sealed.

When the federal government takes your backyard

This is an edited transcription of an interview with


Wyoming Outfitter Taylor
Engum heard on The News
from the Camphouse on
KULM 98.3 FM.

Looking Down
from the Saddle

Herman
Brune: One aspect of hu- Brune

man nature that makes


me sad is when folks dont
consider the plight of their
countrymen and instead
take a half-baked idiotic Herman Brune is a freelance writer,
stance on an issue that they radio personality and author based
in Colorado County.
know nothing about. In this
instance Im referring to the
lifestyle forced upon the rural folks in Rocky Mountain
States where the Canadian Gray Wolf has been reintroduced. Previously, weve visited with ranchers who have
sold out due to the inability to coexist with unmanaged
populations of grizzly bears and wolves. Weve been
told about having pets killed on their porch by wolves
and heard harrowing experiences about grizzlies tearing into horse barns, as well as, preying upon cattle.
The biggest reason for this situation, and what could
be described as violence upon an innocent citizenry, is
militant environmentalism. Activists of this stripe use
quasi-conservation groups, such as the Sierra Club, to
file federal injunctions and use money donated from
the simple-minded folks that believe they are helping
a good cause. The money gathered by these groups is
not used directly for conservation. Instead it is used for
litigation, bad science, and to force the environmentalists agenda.
Another troubling aspect is that the environmentalists manipulate public sentiment with social media
sound bites and bumper sticker mentality. They raise
money in urban areas far away from the issue. They fill
their coffers with dollars from shallow-thinking urbanites that are untouched by visceral bloody realities that
they affect.
But now, today, were talking to a man that lives in
the center of this topic and was invited to speak in public schools. Taylor Engum is an outfitter for elk hunters
in the East Fork of the Wind River in Wyoming. He is

a longtime resident of that country and has witnessed


what wolf depredation has done to wildlife herds. He
likewise has researched and put forth evidence that discounts the popular fluff floating around Facebook and
other social mediums that glorify the wolf introduction
experiment.
Taylor, please tell us about being invited to speak in
public schools.
Engum: The students were doing research on the wolf
issue and invited experts to speak from several factions.
Along with myself there was also a rancher and a biologist from Wyoming Fish and Game.
Brune: Okay, initially Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho
were against the reintroduction. Where do the states
stand now?
Engum: They absolutely believe that the states need
to be managing the wolf population. Presently, their
hands are tied by the federal government.
We need to let the state biologists do their job. They
are completely capable. The Wyoming Game and Fish
department do most of the legwork in studying wildlife.
They are actually the experts and biologists that collect
all the data. We have more biologists and men in the
field than the feds.
Brune: How much interaction is there between the
state biologists and federal biologists? The Wyoming
Fish and Game elk biologist is the only character in almost 15 years that quit me on an interview. I was pressing him for information about elk counts and whether
there was data shared with the feds concerning predator depredation. In the middle of questioning he quit,
and in so doing to me discredited Wyoming Fish
and Games ability to set cow tag quotas.
My conclusion was that its horrible to have the feds
mismanaging wildlife because it is done by litigation
and not science. And the same time, I saw that state
biologists in control of wildlife on federal lands can also
be pretty sassy.
But despite all that frustration you were given a
wonderful venue. What was your message to the students?
Engum: I told them that Gray Wolves are one of the
most beautiful animals anyone could ever see in the
wild. But they need to be managed. The reintroduction has had a devastating impact on elk herds in Wyo-

ming, Montana, and Idaho.


For the past two years we were able to manage the
wolves, but in September a federal judge in Washington
D.C. took that tool away.
Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho have agreements with
the feds to manage for a certain number of breeding
pairs to remain. The agreement that Wyoming had was
considered legally non-binding. Even though the state
has managed in accordance with the agreement and
done everything promised, a group filed suit because
of the paperwork. A week before the wolf season was
to open a federal judge put the wolf back under federal protection because the agreement was considered
legally non-binding.
Again the management has been taken out of our
hands.
Brune: This federal fubar has nothing to do with science. It is about legalese and pushing an agenda. Meanwhile, people and businesses are not protected. Also,
remember that this is not an actual reintroduction. The
Canadian Gray Wolf was not indigenous. There was a
small population of Rocky Mountain Wolves in the Lamar Valley that were immediately killed by the federally
owned Canadian Grays. The entire federal action has
been illegal and at one point there was a different federal injunction demanding that the introduced wolves be
re-collected. But that injunction was set aside because
obviously the cat was out of the bag. It was too late.
Engum: That is correct. The wolves that inhabited
this section of the country were the Rocky Mountain
Wolves. Those dogs ranged from 60 to 80 pounds.
The wolves that were turned loose have been recorded
weighing 150 to 180 pounds. The idea of restoring the
balance of nature by this means is wrong.
Federal issues require a national voice. We need the
sportsmen from across the nation to call their Congressman and tell them to help the Congressmen in
Wyoming. The only way to enact change is for people
to be aware and then act.
Brune: The balance of nature is a false presumption. Ask, at what point in history are you seeking to
replicate the balance. Wildlife populations have fluctuated forever, seeking that balance is like wishing for
life before electricity.

The Cannon

During the Christmas season, depression can be a killer


Christmas, for most of
us, is a time of joy, peace
and love. For most children
Christmas is a time of joyful
expectation and excitement.
This is the time of year that
is set aside to spend quality
time with the special people
in our lives; it is a time of
giving and of receiving gifts.
For believers it is the day we
celebrate the birth of God.
But statistically this is
one of the most depressing
times of the year for a majority of folks. Many of us
have lost our loved ones and
now feel empty and incomplete, and no matter what is
going on around us, we just
cant seem to get into the
spirit of the holidays. The
focus during the holidays
for people who are suffering
from their losses is not gaiety and gift-giving. It is on
what they lack.
One of my Facebook
friends posted something
that will give you an idea
of what I am talking about.
He says; December is one
of the worst months of the
year for people young and
old who suffer from depression. Depression is a killer,
taking the lives of many this
time of year. People with no
family to share Christmas

Love, Eloise
Eloise
Estes
with because their friends
and family have moved
away or are now gone.
People who have very little
money or no money at all.
Some kids never get to experience the joy of Christmas. If you know a person
like this, take time to visit
and be with them. Keep
them in your prayers. I
have suffered from depression in my life, (I called it
the Devils Advocate); until
I was introduced to and got
in contact with God and the
Holy Spirit. God made me
think of all the good things
that have happened in my
life and helped me hold
them before me as stepping
stones toward the future.
Gods love isnt just for me
and you, but for everyone.
Pray for the less fortunate
and keep them in mind. Let
them know that they are not
alone, and that Gods love is
unconditional. We may not
get all that we ask for, but
God will give us all we need.
Support our troops and

their families this season


and throughout the year.
Many expect too much of
God. He expects you to do
your part as well. To all my
friends and their families...I
wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Some of us have family
but cant seem to connect
with them at all...no matter
how hard we try. Almost
every Christmas movie Ive
watched lately is of family
members who cringe at the
thought of getting together
with their loved ones and
try every trick in the book
to avoid going home for the
holidays.
One of the major reasons
we get so stressed out, and
the reason some of us end
up downright depressed in
this life, is because someone didnt meet our highest
expectation. False expectations are the main reason
for the emotional pain we
experience.
What then
are we to do when we are
expected to do what others will not do? Should
we allow our hurt feelings
to dictate the involvement
we choose to have with the
people we love? What is the
secret for a better holiday
season...to a peaceful mind

and contented life?


I believe that the only
way to survive emotionally
during this season of merriment (and for the course
of our lives) is to lower our
Expectation Bar! If we can
continue to show our love
and affection without expecting anything in return,
we wont be disappointed
when we dont receive any.
I think we all have a tendency to expect too much
from the people we love.
Im not talking about presents either. We expect to be
invited to the get-togethers,
to be included in the shopping and preparations and
to be appreciated for the
things we do. We want our
loved ones to join us in our
personal celebrations and
rally around us the way we
support them. We want the
people we love to yearn for
our companionship and
to miss us when we arent
around. We want others to
show their love in and out of
these seasons of thanksgiving and love. Unfortunately,
that isnt always the case.
Sometimes what you get
from others is all theyve got
to give. We are all works in
progress. There is not one
person alive who doesnt

have a little glitch in his/her


programming which skews
their perspective and affects
their behavior. If you dont
want to cut off your ties
completely with the people
you want in your life, then
youve got to lower the bar.
Stop expecting people to be
who you want them to be;
or even who they should
be. Stop waiting for people
to show consideration, affection and love every time
you express yours. Be grateful for the love and affection
that you get, whenever you
get it. Just keep on loving
the best way you know how.
Be who God wants you to
be. Pray for the people you

love and then allow God to


work in their hearts as He
did in yours.
We tend to forget what
this season is all about. We
focus on things, on people
and on making ourselves
happy...instead of on Christ.
The love we are after is
wrapped up in Him. Lets
remember why we celebrate; fallingl to our knees
in gratitude...because we
matter to God.
God keep you safe till
next time...
love,
eloise

Gonzales County Commissioners Court


met Wednesday morning for their regularly scheduled meeting, and it was chockfull of business. Things got underway
with the acceptance of the Dec. 15 Special
Called Meeting, followed by the Treasurers

Monthly Report, which was also accepted.


The county Tax-Accessor and Collector
then presented the court with a certificate
stating she had completed secondary education as compliant with Senate Bill 546.
The court got into the thick of things
afterwards, as they declared a surplus of a

Voting will take place on Election Day,
Jan. 6, at the following locations:
Precincts 1, 14 and 15, Gonzales County Courthouse, 414 St. Joseph;
Precincts 2 and 11, Gonzales Master
Gardeners Building, 623 N. Fair St.;

Precinct 12 at the JB Wells Park multipurpose building, 2301 County Road 197
in Gonzales.
Two candidates have already indicated
they plan to seek the seat: Bastrop entrepeneur Brent Golemon and former Bastrop
County Judge candidate Ty McDonald.
Golemon has been a member of the
Board of the Bastrop County Water District
and in 2011 he assisted the Bastrop Ministerial Alliance with the collection and distribution of over $750,000 to residents who
had lost their homes and belongings in the
Bastrop County Complex fires.
He founded his first company at the age
of 23, and has subsequently founded, cofounded, or acquired an ownership inter-

est in more than 15 companies providing


general management and business development expertise. These companies include Advanced Legal Technologies, Elgin
Fitness, Big Dog Hobbies, Media Tracking,
Trinsic Technologies and KGB Consultants.
He received his BA from Hampden-Sydney College in 1991 and upon graduation
worked as a Legislative Aide for a Texas
Senator and as Chief of Staff for a Texas
House Representative. While working at
the Texas Legislature, he received his J.D.
from the University of Texas School of Law.
McDonald is a 1993 graduate of Texas
A&M University and is married to former
Bastrop County Judge Ronnie McDonald.
She served as campaign coordinator for
John Sharps run for comptroller, was a
legislative director for State Rep. Yvonne
Davis in the early 90s, served as a school
teacher for seven years and was elected to
one term to the board of trustees for the
Bastrop Independent School District. She
currently serves as the senior pastor for
Breath of Life Deliverance Church.
McDonald initially decided to run

ASSAULT: Man faces charges

took her to the emergency room at Gonzales Memorial Hospital for an examination.
Camarillo questioned the girl again the
next day and she told him she had gone to a
house and consumed alcohol. After learning the location of the house, Camarillo
obtained some names from the girl and
began an investigation based on her statement, Taylor said.
The girl was then taken to Normas
House for a forensic interview, where she
admitted to having a drink from a bottle
of liquor. She also claimed to not remember much after that. When the interviewer
asked if anything sexual in nature had hap-

pened to her, she said she did not remember.


Taylor said that further investigation was
conducted by Lt. Tammy West and Officer
Jonathan Lorton, who spoke with other
individuals and obtained information that
there may have been a sexual assault. An
arrest warrant was issued for Dondre Anthony Hunt, 21, of Gonzales on a charge of
sexual assault.
Camarillo then went to Seguin and met
with a SANE nurse and obtained evidence
collected during a sexual assault examination. The kit was then taken to the DPS
crime lab in Austin on Dec. 12. Taylor said
authorities are currently awaiting the results of the analysis.

vehicle, he was airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio.


The drivers and passengers of the first
two vehicles that were struck were not injured and their vehicles sustained minor
damage.
Crow said that during the investigation it
was discovered that Garcia may have been

using inhalants at the time of the crash. A


warrant was issued by Judge David Bird for
Intoxication Manslaughter.
County Attorney Investigator John
Brumme drove to University Hospital and
served a search warrant to obtain blood
from Garcia. Upon release from the hospital, Garcia ,was taken into custody by
Bexar County Sheriff s Department early
Friday.

SHOOTING: Man charged

Bandy was later released on $95,000 in


total bonds, which was set by Precinct 4
Justice of Peace Darryl Becker.
Officials gave no indication at any
motivation behind Bandys action.

deputies were assisted by personnel
with the Texas DPS Highway Patrol,
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department,
Gonzales County Precinct 3 Constables Office, and Gonzales County
EMS.

a 2015 John Deere model. The next order


of business saw them approved the lease
agreement for the part. Keeping with the
maintenance subject, the Commissioners
Court also approved cell phone allowance
for the countys Maintenance Supervisor.
Next, court members awarded bids for
unbranded gas, highway diesel, and dyed
diesel for Gonzales Countys Precincts.
Precinct 1 had two equal bids, so the
winner, Johnson Oil, was chosen by coin
toss. Precinct 2 went to Schmidt & Sons;
Johnson Oil won Precinct 3 in the same
way as 1, and Precinct 4 was awarded to
Dynasty Enterprises. They also approved
a lease agreement between Xerox and the
county for a new copy machine for the
District Clerk, which will save the county
some money. Commissioners Court also
granted Mike Tuch variance from the
Gonzales County Subdivision rules Pct #3
for the sale of 1.82 acres of land. He had
already met with the court before, so the
matter needed nothing more than official
approval.
After breezing through most of the agenda, things slowed down when the court
moved on to discussing and evaluating the
countys heavy equipment tax. Apparently,
some oil field companies are leasing equipment to themselves through subsidiaries in
order to avoid paying taxes for the equipments full worth. This allows companies
to pay taxes for a one million dollar item
as though it were worth one thousand. The

court decided to table discussion and action until next months meeting, at which
time they will decided how to change the
policy to eliminate this loophole and keep
Gonzales County citizens from having to
pay the difference in the long run. Following along the tabling theme, the court
also postponed discussion of the policy
and payment of salaried positions within
the County until next meeting because the
consultant who was supposed to explain
and help with the situation was unable to
attend Wednesdays meeting.
Commissioners Court began to wrap
up with members deciding to amend the
current retiree health insurance policy for
elected officials. The previous policy stated that the county would pay for retirees
insurance if they had served 16 years or
more and were 59 or older. The new policy
only requires 12 years and a minimum age
of 55. Court members also appointed new
members to the Gonzales County Historical Commission for the 2015-6 year.
Members include: Glenda Gordon (Chairperson), Marilyn Qualls, Kimberly Fairchild, Wain Fairchild, Sandra Wolff, Bubba
Wolff, Bradely Avant, Glen Sachtleben,
Brent Baker, Valerie Reddell, David Horton, Tina Mills, and Lynn Gescheidle.
After some financial business, including
considering and approving budget amendments and approving bills for the month
of November, the court reached the end of
the mornings agenda and adjourned.

Janice Sue Grauke


1947-2014

GRAUKE

Janice Sue Grauke, 67, of


Gonzales, passed away Thursday, December 11, 2014. Sue
was born September 24, 1947
in Gonzales to Garland Tenberg, Sr. and Dorothy Conger
Tenberg. She graduated with
the Class of 1965 from Gonzales High School and graduated
from Austin Business School.
Sue was a life long member
of the First United Methodist
Church. Sue married Herman
Louis Grauke on January 15,
1966 in Gonzales.
Growing up as the eldest child
in the Garland and Dorothy
Tenberg family, Sue accepted
many of the household responsibilities, including watching
over her little brother, driving
him to school and tolerating
the frequent stops on the way
home as Garland, Jr. closely
watched the roadside for discarded soda bottles and insisting Sue quickly stop so he could
retrieve the bottle and later collect the 5 cent bounty for each
bottle recovered. Sue didnt
mind, this was small thing to
make her brother happy and
that in itself made her happy.
Sue met Herman Grauke at
a Moods dance in the early
1960s. Herman mustered up
the courage to ask Sue out on
a date, but Sue being the proper
young lady she was raised to be,
politely replied that she needed
to ask her daddy first and asked
Herman to please call her later
in the week when she had her
fathers answer. Herman didnt
call, he mused that Mr. Tenberg would answer the phone
if he called and Herman might
get an ear full. Shortly word
got back to Herman that Sue
had her fathers permission for
them to go out on a date which
launched a beautiful relationship leading to marriage and
nearly 50 years of a wonderful
life together.
After business school Sue
worked as a bookkeeper for the
First National Bank before accepting the bookkeeping position at the Gonzales Inquirer
Newspaper. She left the newspaper after her second daughter was born to care more
closely for her children and
take in a few others as well. After working a few jobs outside

her home, Hugo Ehrig came to


her and talked Sue into coming back to her old position as
bookkeeper for the Inquirer
where she stayed until 2011
achieving forty years of faithful
service to the paper.
Whether it was her business
acumen or fastidious bookkeeping or both, something
drove Sue to be an immaculate
organizer and house keeper.
She was a talented seamstress
and loved to sew and Sue made
many dresses for her daughters. She made quilted Christmas ornaments for family and
friends. For twenty three years
Sue made Christmas Stockings
for all of her daughter Lorettas
classroom children. She sewed
every curtain in her daughter
Carolyns house and shared her
love of sewing with her granddaughters. She delighted in
doing craft work her grandchildren, making corn husk dolls,
ornaments, blankets, aprons
and doll clothes even though
dolls were really never favored
by her granddaughters. It was
quality time she spent with
them; she was creating meaningful memories and forever
smiles. As a faithful and lifetime member of First United
Methodist Church, there is little doubt that each thread was
sewn in prayer and love. Sue
lived to serve; she lived to make
others happy, her triumphs
were the smiles her efforts imparted on others. Sue was a caring and loving daughter, doting
on the elderly in her family,
seeing to their every need and
assuring that they were comfortable and loved. She cared
for her family in the same way;
loving and doting, putting their
needs before her own. She was
proud to be a wife, mom and
nanny each title as central to
her loving spirit as the other.
For years she prepared angel
food cakes for the bereaved of
her church family, another extension of her caring spirit. Sue
enjoyed time with her husband,
she cherished time spent dancing with Herman, especially
to the music of the Moods
the magical music of the band
that drew them together in
the very beginning. Proverbs
31:10 states, An excellent wife
who can find, she is far more
precious then jewels. Herman
found his at a Moods dance
in the early 1960s.
Janice Sue Grauke, Sue, is
survived by her adoring husband, Herman Louis Grauke
of Gonzales, her sweet mother,
Dorothy Tenberg of Gonzales,
loving daughters and sons-inlaw, Loretta Ann and Tyree
Schurig of Gonzales, Carolyn
Marie and Jason Rogers of
Cuero, endearing brother and
sister-in-law, Garland, Jr. and
Sharon Tenberg of Gonzales
and her beloved grandchildren,
Ashley Schurig, Robert Schurig, Layne Rogers and Jasey
Rogers. She was preceded in
death by her father.
Funeral services were held
at 10 a.m. Tuesday, December
16, 2014 in the First United
Methodist Church with Pastor Andy Smith officiating.
Interment followed in Woodman of the World Cemetery/
Gonzales Memorial Park. Pallbearers: Tyree Schurig, Robert

Bond projects will take shape as the new year begins


Dear Gonzales ISD School
and Community Family,
Merry Christmas! December weather has been quite
pleasant, the lights in our city
are amazing, and the beautiful smiles of our students
light our halls. What a great
beginning for the holiday season! Washington Irving said,
Christmas is a season for
kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame
of charity in the heart. We are
so proud of the many ways
that our school community
supports one another within
the district and within our
Gonzales community. Thank
you to our students and their
sponsors for supporting many
charitable events. This week
Anchors will continue to
host Senior Citizen BINGO
providing prizes and a meal
to Senior Citizens at Country Village Square and making and delivering Christmas
cookies to the Gonzales High
School Faculty and Staff, the
Gonzales County EMS, Police
Department, and Fire Station
to show their appreciation for
their services. Additionally,
the Mu Alpha Theta Math
Honor Club will visit both
The Heights and The Texas
Nursing Homes and provide
Christmas cards, blankets and
socks. The girls athletics bas-

ketball players will also visit


the nursing homes. The boys
athletics players will provide
assistance to the Lions Club
in preparing meal boxes for
needy families this Friday.
Thank you to all who serve
others so charitably.
This time of year also brings
reflection on many blessings.
We have had a wonderful first
semester at school. We are so
proud of our students. There
is much activity on campus
as teachers bring closure to
the first semester. Students are
completing mid-year exams.
The extra excitement of the
upcoming Christmas break
provides for a wonderful energy everywhere. When we
return from the holidays there
will be some change as our
bond projects begin to unfold.
We expect ground breaking at the location of our new
Early Childhood campus by
the first weeks of February,

2015. As you recall this is the


previous location of the HEB
store. As we move forward,
there will soon be steady
work at the entire complex.
Drawings of the upcoming
campus concept can be found
on the Gonzales ISD website.
The existing structure will be
expanded to provide not only
for classrooms, but the multiuse cafeteria, library and
media center. Much space
outside will additionally contribute to a lovely playground
for students. Within weeks
all first phase projects will
be underway including the
expansions, band hall, and
classroom additions at North
Avenue (NA) Intermediate.
You will begin to see activity
at the NA site as we move the
portables currently used for
band and class space to the
other side of the school to
make room for construction.
In addition, the space once
supporting an office location
for the Gonzales Learning
and Career Center (GLCC)
must be moved in order to
provide for necessary growth
at NA. It is with fondness I
mention the GLCC.
Nearly one year ago conversations began to take place
regarding the imminent need
to expand at district facilities.
Although the GLCC is not a

Spade & Trowel Garden Club News


The Spade and Trowel
Garden Club held its annual Christmas luncheon
at La Bella Tavola restaurant on December 9, 2014.
Round tables with white
cloths were topped by festive red satin stars embroidered with gold brocade.
Red chargers at each place
and Christmas decorations
set the holiday mood. A
prayer was offered by Barbara DeBerry before a delicious three course meal

was served. The occasion


was hosted by the Social
Committee including Carol
Rhea Hardcastle, Arva Nell
Needham, Rebecca Mansfield and Barbara Thigpen.
After the meal, there was
an ornament exchange, a
club Christmas tradition
for many years. Beautiful and special ornaments
were received by all who
participated.
The Museum Star Lighting Campaign continues

to solicit donations for the


2014 Stars. Each star is
made of 60 lights with contributions requested for $1
per light or $60 for a complete star. Stars can be a
Christmas gift or in honor
or memory of someone.
All funds collected will go
for city beautification projects. Checks can be made
to Spade and Trowel Garden Club and mailed to

TX 78629.

GISD entity, we have enjoyed


a close working relationship.
This charitable organization totally funded by contributions and grant dollars
has served our community
for many years. We are so
happy that Gonzales County
was able to provide for office
space at the court house for
the GLCC director. We have
been proud to support the
GLCC and are thrilled that
the county will continue to
support this wonderful organization.
In addition to the new early childhood facility and NA
projects, first phase projects
also include Gonzales High
School. At Gonzales High
School, first phase projects
include expansions of the
new front entry, office area
and student center at Gonzales High School. We look
forward to the work and
projects completions to better
serve our students and staff
and ultimately our future. As

you recall the bond projects


also included a provision to
purchase property for the
future needs of the district.
GISD was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity
to purchase 49.28 acres. You
will see clearing activity in
the near future as we examine this property and begin to
think about the future facility
needs of the district in the
years to come. We will spend
much time planning for
the years ahead as we work
through the next phases of
construction. The planning
will entail implementing and
refining the project needs of
today while incorporating
the future needs of facilities
at GISD.
We are continually grateful for the support from our
community. The GISD Education Foundation awarded
grants for a total of nearly
$29,000.00. Teachers were
given a surprise presentation
with drum roll and recog-

nitions. The grant awards


support classroom projects
that directly impact innovative instruction and student
achievement. We thank the
GISD Education Foundation
for the continued efforts and
contributions to GISD students and staff.
It has been a wonderful
blessing to see our students
performances, witness their
hard work and watch them
grow in so many ways. Thank
you for sharing your children
and maintaining a partnership in their success. We look
forward to the next semester!
Heres wishing you all a wonderful holiday!
From one of our favorite Dr. Suess books, Maybe Christmas, the Grinch
thought, doesnt come from
a store. As we celebrate this
Christmas may the joy of the
holiday touch your hearts.
We wish you many blessings,
joy, health and prosperity for
the New Year 2015!

First Evangelical Lutheran celebrates 110th annversary


On Sunday, Dec. 7, members of First
Evangelical Lutheran Church celebrated
their 110th anniversary.
Present were members and guests,
Bishop Ray Tiemann of the Southwestern
Texas Synod, ELCA, former pastors Allen
Collins, Walter Lentz and Stephen Clark.
The celebration began at 9:15 with a coffee
hour with Bishop Tiemann, remembering
favorite moments in the life of the congregation and the people of faith who have
inspired through the years.
At 10:30 a Communion Worship service
was led by Pastor Ildiko Rigney, with Bishop Tiemann preaching, praising God for
His faithfulness and asking for His blessings in the ministry that is yet to come.
Those gathered enjoyed a catered lunch
and a festive cake, conversation, and reminisced about important events in the life of
the church family.
In 1904 a group of Lutherans organized
as the Freie Deutsche Evangelische Lutherische Gemeinde (Free German Evangelical Lutheran Congregation). The first
pastor was Rev. Wilhelm Dziewas from
Shiner.
The congregation purchased a one-half
square of land in 1921 from the city of
Gonzales, and on this land the Nettie Willet School stood, where church services
were held.

The churchs name was changed to First


Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1924. A
new Sanctuary was built and dedicated in
1942.
Christ Lutheran Church of Monthalia
(which had disbanded) gave their church
bell to First Lutheran in 1947, and members from this church joined the congregation, as well. A basic pipe organ was
purchased the same year, and enlarged in
1954 and 1983. A grand piano was added
in 1999.
The present church was enlarged in
1952, and a fellowship hall was built starting in 2002 and dedicated in 2005.
The festivities of the day came to an
end at 2pm with Minds Creatives performance of the comical play When
God Comes for Breakfast, Dont Burn the Pictured Left to right: Rev. Ildiko Rigney, Rev. Walter Lentz, Bishop Ray Tiemann,
Toast. Those present enjoyed a time of Rev. Stephen Clark and Rev. Allen Collins

End of an era: Dement retires from GISD

By MARK LUBE

sportseditor@gonzalescannon.com

A familiar presence in
the Gonzales Independent
School District athletic office is calling it a day after
three decades of tireless
work and extreme dedication.
Athletic secretary Anita
Dement will be retiring
this week after a long tenure at the post.
Dement has spent 30
years working for Gonzales
Independent School District. She spent the first 17
years working in the high
school office before coming
over to the athletic department as secretary and serving for 13 years, working
behind the scenes to make
sure the student-athletes,
coaches and athletic trainer
have everything they need
to keep the Lady Apaches
and Apaches sports program running smoothly.
Dement has worked
with athletic director/head
football coaches Charlie
Brown, Leonard McAngus,
Bruce Salmon, Ricky Lock,
Kris Micheaux and Kodi

Crane and has enjoyed every minute of it.


But mainly Dement
loved working with all of
the hundreds of studentathletes that have come and
gone through the program.
I have met a lot of female and male studentathletes over the years I
have met a lot of loving and
caring athletes that I have
enjoyed working with and
helping, Dement said. I
have enjoyed watching all
of their games because I
have been at every game.
I have enjoyed every bit of
it.
They have given me
a sense of relief. This has
been my life for 30 years.
People have been asking
Dement about what comes
next.
You can bet it will involve spending more time
with her family especially
her kids and grandkids
My children have asked
me Mom what are you going to do now, she said. I
have been a single parent
and have worked two jobs
in order to provide for my
children. Now, I have five

grandchildren. I am looking forward to seeing them


and the rest of my family
and friends.
Dement she has memories from serving each of
the athletic directors.
I was very close to each
one. We went through bad
times and we went through
some good times, she said.
We are all family out here
in the field house. The kids
are my family. The coaching staff is my family. I can
remember the cold playoff
game last year in Round
Rock against Fredericksburg. The football players
had ice on their shoes. I
recall that long hours that
Coach (Bruce) Salmon
would work. He would
come in early in the morning and work long hours. I
have put in a lot of hours
but thats okay because
working in the athletic department was my life even
though I might have put a
little too much heart into it.
On Friday nights, there are
not any problems. Out-oftown games run smooth.
Dement said each individual athlete she has

known has brought a new
experience into her life that
she will treasure.
She has also gotten to
know coaches in the surrounding areas as well.

I will truly miss everyone I have met while being


athletic secretary, Dement
said. I enjoy dealing with
the school district officials
and the public, the athletes,

She said she is considering relocating to San Antonio or Corpus Christi to
start the next chapter in her
life.

FLATONIA The Flatonia girls basketball team


pushed and pushed the ball
to a 41-34 win over Hallettsville Sacred Heart on
Thursday evening.
It was a good win for
us, Lady Bulldogs head
coach Jennifer Zaruba said.
We ran the floor and did
a good job of pushing the
ball.
We still need to work on
blocking out and rebounding on the offensive side.
The Lady Dogs broke an
early 2-2 tie with two free
throws from Kylie Mica,
a basket from Jaycee Fike
and a field goal by Alanis
Ribera to take an 8-4 lead

after the first quarter. The


Indianettes got a basket a
piece from Olivia Bohuslav
and Madison Etzler.
To kick off the second
quarter, Etzler had an assist
on Sarah Bludaus bucket
and then helped out on a
score from Kaylin Dworsky
to bring Sacred Heart to
within 9-8.
Fike then hit a free throw
and Mica assisted on two
Ribera scores. Brittany
Ochs followed this with
two baskets of her own and
Ribera got another bucket

After five years at Luling, including three as athletic director and head football coach, Colby Hensley has decided
to step down from his current position.
Hensley was very thankful for having the opportunity
to head up the Eagles athletic program for three years and
will miss all of the folks he interacted with.
The people have been wonderful, he said. I will miss
the students, the coaches and everyone else in the school
district and the community.
Durning his tenure as athletic director, the athletic program has made lots of strides.
The Luling win over Odem in 2012 during the postseason was the first time in a while that the Eagles football
team has won a playoff game.
Luling won its first playoff game in about 30 years,
Hensley said. And we have qualififed for the playoffs for
three straight seasons.
Other athletic programs have had success in the last several years.
Every year Hensley has been at Luling, the Eagles boys
cross country team has won a state title. The track team did
well at state last year and the baseball team is a constantt
member of the playoffs.
The improvements have not just come in the forms of
playoffs,wins and trophies.
Our athletes have gotten bigger, stronger and faster,
Hensley said.

Bulldogs light up Sacred Heart


The Flatonia Bulldogs
simply turned on the afterburners and raced away
from Hallettsvile Sacred
Heart, 75-23, on Thursday
night.
We played well in our
transition game, getting
easy baskets, first-year
Flatonia head coach Chris
Sodek said. We did not
play well in the first half because we were a little sluggish from our earlier game.
Flatonias prowess is
evenly distributed among
the whole team.
We do not have a go-to
player, Sodek said. At any
given moment, the entire
group can play well.
The 2014-15 Indians are
a very young team.
We have one guy back
from last year who played
on varsity and lost six seniors, Sacred Heart head
coach Kevin Dworsky said.

Sacred Heart drew first

bucket by Caleb Krischke.
The Dogs quickly bounced
back with seven straight on
a three-point field goal by
Gus Venegas and pair of
baskets by Casen Novak.
Flatonia went up 12-7 on
a pair of buckets by Venegas and a free throw by
Andrew Dvorak. Sacred

Heart cut the lead to 1210 as Clint Brewer sank a


triple. The Dogs ended the
quarter with four straight
points. Novak deposited
five points in the second

Indians to no points.

It was a rough start to


district play for the Gonzales Lady Apaches as they
fell to the Wimberley Texans, 66-31, Tuesday night at

The Lady Texans grabbed
plenty of steals and slightly

By MARK LUBE

sportseditor@gonzalescannon.com

MOULTON The
Luling Eagles took plenty
of shots in their Moulton
Klassic tournament game
against Cuero on Thursday.
The shots just did not
make it into the basket and
the Gobblers came away
with a 57-38 victory.
Our shots were just not
falling. We were getting
plenty of looks, Luling
head coach Cooper Haralson said.
Luling also struggled a
little on the defensive side
Our transition defense
was not where we wanted it
to be today, Haralson said.
The loss shines a little bit
of a light on what Luling
will need to continue improving
Overall, it was frustrating but it shows us what we
need to work on, he said.
The Gobblers came out
strong at the start with an
8-0 lead, getting buckets by
Grant Diebel and E.J. Johnson.
Luling got within 14-4
as Devin Spurlock made
a basket and Daryl Carter
converted a free throw and
Cuero capped the quarter
with a three-point basket
by Diebel to lead 17-4.
To start the second quarter, Carter assisted on the
jumper from Briar Bullock
as Luling got within 17-6.
Cuero responded with a
9-0 run.
Luling then scored seven
of the next eight points
with a Carter bucket and
two field goals by Reece
Franks, including one off a
steal.

Cuero then went on a 6-4


run to take a 33-16 halftime lead.
In the third quarter,
Luling rallied for a 7-4 to
be within 40-23 and followed by both teams hitting some free throws down
the stretch. The Gobblers
ended the quarter with a
bucket by Jared Vernor to
get ahead 45-25.
Led by four points each
from Bullock and Carter,
the Eagles went on a 13-10
run in the fourth quarter to
finish out the game.

Flatonia comes back


in fourth quarter against
Yoakum
Going into the fourth
quarter, the Flatonia Bulldogs trailed the Yoakum
Bulldogs, 43-37.
Flatonia was able to
snatch victory from the
strong jaws of defeat Friday in its tournament, 6356.
We showed our heart in
that game, Flatonia head
coach Chris Sodek said.
We got a few turnovers
that led to a few easy baskets. Our defense played
great.

The Yoakum Bulldogs


have only had a few days of
practice prior to the tournament due to the football
team advancing into the
state quarterfinals.
For two and half days
worth of practice, we
played well, Yoakum head
coach Joe Mireles said.
We played better than in
our first two games. We are
just trying to gain experience as we try to replace
several players from last
year. I feel we will be okay.
Yoakum opened the
contest with a 6-0 lead as
Travious Hights, Justin
Brown and Glenn Love all
sank baskets.
A bucket from Casen
Novak and some free
throws from Andrew
Dvorak helped Flatonia
close the gap to 6-4. Five
more points and Flatonia
led 9-8.
Yoakum eventually took
a 12-11 lead but Flatonia
scored five straight to end
the quarter ahead 16-12.
In the second frame,
more points from Dvorak,
and a steal and score from
Gus Venegas put Flatonia
ahead 22-13.
Yoakum hit a couple of
long-range shots to end
the quarter with a a 16-6
run for a 29-28 lead at halftime.
Yoakum took off in the
third quarter to convert
more three-point shots by
Brown and Hights to take
a 38-30 advantage.
Flatonia made about

seven free throws down


the stretch to trail 43-37 to
start the fourth quarter.
In the fourth period,
buckets from Easton
Migl, Novak and Venegas
brought Flatonia within
45-44.
A Dvorak two-point
shot with three minutes
left drew the teams even at
53 and Flatonia went on a
10-3 run to end the game.

Yoakum girls win rematch with Flatonia


It was another Dog
fight but it turned out different than the one earlier
in the week. Yoakum defeated Flatonia, 54-43, Friday in the Flatonia Tournament.
The teams had played a
game on Dec. 9 with Flatonia ending up the winner
39-34.
We picked up our intensity in this game, Yoakum head coach Zach Burleson said. We got some
easy shots that helped us
control the game. After
the first quarter and half,
I thought it the game was

pretty even. We made


about five or six threepoint shots. We were ice
cold in the second quarter.
Yoakums fire burned
hot at the start as Camisha
Williams hit three buckets,
including a triple, Kaitlyn
Caka scored and Lauren
Caka made a shot to give
Yoakum an 11-0 lead. Flatonia scored seven straight
on a basket by Brittany
Ochs, two free throws and
a triple from Kylie Mica.
Yoakum then scored
the last seven points of
the frame to be ahead 187. Jordan Payne, Lauren
Caka and MeKellia Eldridge made early shots to
put Yoakum ahead 26-7.
Flatonia then went on a
7-0 run to get caught up a
little, getting points from
Ochs, Kylie Mica, Maggie
Mica and Jaycee Fike.
Yoakum closed out the
period with a 10-4, helped
out by a pair of three-point
shots by Kaitlyn Caka
Flatonia took advantage
of Yoakums third-period
lull with a 10-2 run getting
four points from Ochs and
two each from Alanis Ribera, Kylie Mica and Maggie Mica.
Flatonia started the
fourth quarter by coming
within 38-30 on the basket by Lillie Steinhauser.
Baskets by Kaitlyn Caka,
Payne and Latrice Brown
put Yoakum ahead 45-30.
Maggie Mica brought Flatonia 45-36. Yoakum ended the game with a 9-7 run.

How to be a holiday party super star


By ANDREA SEGER
Co-Owner, Angels & Outlaws

Tis the season to see holiday fashion in full swing.


Have you ever gone to a Christmas party dressed up shinier than the
Christmas tree? Or skipped the party
because you couldnt decide what to
wear?
I have been to a few Christmas
parties in my time, and since I am
always into scoping out the best and
worst fashion, these parties prove to
be great sources for gaining fashion
dos and donts rules, as well as great
entertainment for me.
There are always your super star
stand outs at the party. Those that
know how to put together an outfit
and they arent afraid to go bold and
look good doing it. These are the
ones that pick an outfit that fits them
perfectly, they feel comfortable in,
and they color coordinate.
They also always add a little something extra, like gold sequin leggings
or bright red sparkly heels, or they

show up in a fur coat or have on the


perfect red scarf to set their outfit
apart from the rest.
Then you always have a few party
goers that stand out, but in a completely different way from the holiday super stars. Ill call these the
shining stars, because in the spirit of
Christmas I need to be nice, and actually these folks bring me the most joy,
even if they arent the best dressers at
the party.
The shining stars are the people
that shine brighter than the Christmas tree and their outfits are louder
than the music. They wear 50 shades
of sparkle, or the clothes are just a little too tight, or their lime green shoes
and jewelry just arent the right color
to go with their red jacket.
Most of us aspire to be the super
star and hope we dont end up looking
like the shining star. Here are a few
things to keep in mind while planning your outfit.
First of all, keep it simple. Last
week I was getting ready for a party
and I tried on 10 different outfits

trying to find the best one, when all


along the first thing I put on ended up
being the one I went with.
A little black dress or solid black
or red blouse will always work. Then
you can add the statement pieces like
the big glitzy belt or necklace or a
sparkly little purse that will make you
stand out without blending in with
the decorations.
You can go for sexy but never sleazy
at a Holiday party, nothing too tight
or showing too much skin. Opt for
the super sexy sequin leggings instead
of the ultra mini skirt.
If you have more than one party
and dont want to look the same, then
go with one amazing but basic outfit
and choose different accessories for
each party. You would be surprised
what a scarf or a cardigan can do to
completely change the look of your
outfit.
And always remember if you cant
do it yourself, stop by Angels & Outlaws and let us help you pull your
look together so that you are a super
star at any event.

Music Study Club News


By CAROL DUBOSE
Special to The cannon

The Gonzales Art Group held their annual Christmas Luncheon at La Bella
Tavola. Members brought in art supplies and gift sets to be donated to Normas
House and other childrens groups. This helps with our mission of promoting visual art in the community. Members also brought in loads of food for GCAM and
exchanged small handmade art with each other.

The Music Study Club


of Gonzales, a part of the
Texas and National Federation of Music Clubs
gathered at noon at the
Alcalde Grill for a festive
luncheon arranged by the
Clubs Social Committee,
Sarah and Charles Patterson and Gina Alford.
Pres. Vida Burnett opened
the meeting asking for
the invocation spoken by
Charles Patterson. The
table covered with taupe
linen, was accented with
a red runner which held a

gold foil garland and several vined Christmas tree


shapes each topped with
a red poinsettia blossom
and at each base there
stood a Christmas card of
metal sculpture. Swirled
among the garland was a
red satin rope with tassels
and golden, fuchsia and
crimson bead garlands
atop.
The waitresses presented
the lettuces, tomatoes and
spinach salad with viniagrete dressing and toasted
sour dough slices followed

The gamble paid off; the

by her pen name, George

having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy

You probably dont know
the name Clara Peller, but
if you were watching TV
in the 1980s, you would
almost certainly recognize

her as the Wheres the

chain Wendys incredibly
successful ad campaign.
You might be surprised to
learn that Peller wasnt an
actress; she was a manicurist. A commercial producer named Joe Sedelmaier was shooting a different
ad when he realized they
needed a manicurist on
site, so an assistant ran to
a local beauty shop and returned with Peller. As soon
as she greeted Sedelmaier with a gruff How ya
doin?, the producer realized that she had potential.
He convinced Wendys to
create an entire campaign

The Cannon Letters to Santa

A Christmas Meditation
by: Jean Hrincirik

They searched the Scriptures to learn


where this child would be born.
They traveled the arduous journey by camel.
Rhey traveled many, many, many miles.
Gods guidance system, a Heavenly Star, led them
to a lowly stable in Bethlehem.
There lay Gods holy infant son!
There was no room in the inn.
The Kings of the Orient knelt before the tiny babe
who was destined to save the fallen world.
They placed gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh,
their hearts full of awe and accomplishment.
They had sought this child ... and had found him!
O Christmas joy! We keep remembrance!
We celebrate the birth of our Savior
Who shall reign forever!

Did You Know?

Though there is no official


data that declares the bestselling holiday toy for children
of all-time, its fair to assume
the lovable Sesame Street
figure Elmo is high on the list
of most popular holiday toys.
Much of that popularity can be
traced to the introduction of
Tickle Me Elmo in 1996. Though
not the first Elmo doll, Tickle
Me Elmo became the musthave gift of 1996, when parents
searched far and wide for the
doll that laughed when users
tickled its stomach. During the
holiday season of 1996, many
people paid far beyond market
price just so their children
could wake up on Christmas
or Chanukah and have a Tickle
Me Elmo doll to call their own.
Since 1996, Elmo has been
reincarnated many times over,
and each seems to inspire its
own craze come the holiday
season. Released in 1998, Walk
N Talk Elmo was a popular
childrens gift, as was Rock N
Roll Elmo (1999), Tickle Me
Elmo Surprise (2001), Chicken
Dance Elmo (2002), and
SHOUT Elmo (2005). In 2006,
Mattel announced a special
commemorative Elmo to mark
the 10-year anniversary of the
introduction of Tickle Me Elmo.
That, too, sparked a buying
frenzy.

The Perfect Gift


by: Miriam G. (Sug) Budnik

My mother and father were never rich in the monetary sense, but were more
than rich in their attention to responsibilities as parents,. I never doubted for
a moment that Iw as loved, even when they meted out well-deserved punishment.
My fondest memories of the Christmas season do not include elaborate
presents.
One of my first Christmas memories must have been in the early to mid1930s. I can remember talk of times being bad. I also recall a man showing up
at our back door pleading for a job of any kind to feed his family. We had no
money either, but my parents always had a garden, ensuring enough food on
the table. Mother was so touched that she told him she did have a small job
he could do, but she could only pay him in home-canned vegetables. The man
was so grateful ... that I do recall, and his self-respect was intact by being able
to work for the food.
I mention this to let you know times were not easy then. Mother made do at
Christmas and there on our mantel above the fireplace was a row of the most
beautiful white-tissue wrapped presents to be given to friends and neighbors.
White tissue, enclosing home-made candy, tied with inexpensive red ribbon.
To a child of only a few years old they were magical.
When many years later I mentioned this to my mother, she told me that was
the only thing they could afford to give.
Later, as family finances improved, gifts were more expensive, but somehow
my memories of them have blurred and those tissue wrapped-in-love presents
hold a place in my heart to be treasured as long as I retain memory.
Following Christmas times I always knew my father, who was not a great observer of holidays, would happily bring home a big turkey for the one holiday
he did observe. Each Christmas time this meant, for mother, an all-night marathon to get the turkey prepared for the hand-made stuffing this following
days of baking and other cooking for the big Christmas dinner.
My mother and father are both gone now, and do you know, I dont remember much of what we didnt have but my heart is filled with heart-felt thanks
to God for having parents whose main goal was to carry out their responsibilities with love.
They cared enough tyo correct me when I was wrong and to talk WITH me,
not AT me, explaining honor was to earn your own living, not to envy people
who had more material things, but to be happy for them and to be content
with what I had.I have a deep respect for them, realizing it was not easy, but
they never complained about raising a depression baby born in 1928, but
always made me feel like I was a blessing and they were fortunate to have me.
Therefore, one of my most perfect gifts is from God, for giving me parents
who really cared: truly the gift that keeps on giving for generations to come.

Merry Christmas from the Fam-O-Lee

Christmas is a special time of year the the family at The Gonzales Cannon. Pictured with Santa and Mrs. Claus above are three of Debbie Tolivers grandchildren, Michael Meeh, Journie Matias, Kylee Helms. At right, David, Kristin, Tenley,
Tessa Matias home 1026 St Paul sr all lit up for Christmas joy. Miranda and Mikayla Vinklarek (top center), granddaughters of Sanya Harkey, got the chance
to hang out with the Jolly Old Elf, but Chesty Puller (top right), the son of Publisher Dave Mundy, is not at all amused by all the Christmas ruckus.

Some fun facts to know about the Christmas season


The holiday season has arrived, and
millions of people across the globe will
be celebrating Christmas with their
families and friends. The following are
some interesting tidbits to share with
your loved ones this holiday season.
Each year, more than three billion
Christmas cards are sent in the United
States alone.
In 350 AD, Pope Julius I, bishop of
Rome, proclaimed December 25 the
official celebration date for the birth
of Jesus Christ. Many historians and
theologians have surmised that Christ
really wasnt born this time of year,
thanks to imagery and information from
the Bible.
Christmas carols began as an English
custom called wassailing. Individuals

toasted neighbors to a long and healthy


life.
Despite the common tale that three
wise men paid homage to baby Jesus,
the Bible never specifically calls out a
number. Similarly, theres no specific
indication that they visited the infant
Jesus. Their visit may have occurred
when Jesus was older.
Santa Claus modern look was inspired
by writings from The Knickerbockers of
New York and imagery from Clement
Clarke Moores A Visit from St. Nicholas.
Moore denied authoring the famous
poem for 15 years after it was published
anonymously, feeling the poem was
beneath his talents.
Santa has his own official postal code.
Its H0 H0 H0.

The song Jingle Bells was originally


written for Thanksgiving and not
Christmas. People loved it so much that
the lyrics were changed to fit Christmas.
Christmas trees typically grow for 15
years before theyre cut and sold. This
means the trees sold today were likely
planted in 1999.
Christmas was not declared an
official holiday in the United States until
June 26, 1870.
Before turkey, the traditional
Christmas meal served in England was a
pigs head and mustard.
Male reindeer tend to shed their
antlers in the winter. This means Santas
reindeer are likely female.
Christ may have been born in a cave
rather than a manger. According to

the gospel of Luke, the shepherds that


helped find shelter for Mary to give birth
kept their flock in a cave. The Church of
the Nativity in Bethlehem is built over
a cave called the Grotto of the Nativity,
where Jesus is believed to have been
born.
Many people may be less inclined to
stand under mistletoe waiting for a kiss if
they knew what mistletoe means in the
ancient Germanic language. It literally
means dung on a twig, for the bird who
eats the berries and then leaves seeds in
droppings to propagate new plants.
Each holiday season, PNC Wealth
Management calculates the costs of
the gifts in the song, The 12 Days of
Christmas. The price index for the gifts
went from $12,673 in 1984 to more than
