2 Page / Thursday, January, 0 / DeLeon Free Press Jon Q. Public... by Jon Awbrey By now, I am sure everyone has heard that France is more or less under attack from homegrown Islamic terrorists. On January, the Paris tabloid Charlie Hebdo was attacked by terrorists wielding assault rifles. Twelve people died in the attack. Four people were later killed during an Islamic terrorist attack on a kosher (read Jewish) supermarket. In addition, at least three French police officers were killed in terrorist attacks in France last week. The terrorists claimed they were avenging the Prophet Muhammad. Charlie Hebdo had long published cartoons featuring somewhat offensive likenesses of the Islamic prophet. According to the terrorists own religious ignorance, depictions of Muhammad can be punishable by death. I say ignorance because images of Muhammad adorn buildings all over the world. Apparently, a whole mess of Saudi and North African goat farmers do not understand this. Regardless, this is the reason they attacked and killed the journalists at Charlie Hebdo. Muslim students in France subsequently refused to honor the minute of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. On Sunday, the German magazine Hamburger Morgenpost, which reprinted the cartoons that resulted in the attack at Charlie Hebdo, was targeted by arsonists. Also on Sunday, more than 0 world leaders led a unity march to oppose terrorism through the streets of Paris - heads of state from France, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Israel, and dozens of other nations led the march. Incredibly, U.S. President Barack Obama did not attend, nor did he send a ranking representative. Cough, cough. On Sunday, too, a story led Aljazeera s website that said, initially, there is nothing that justifies the murder of any journalist or cartoonist over their work. But, almost immediately afterward, Aljazeera began making excuses for the terrorists. France has a tradition of The DeLeon Free Press, P.O.

Publisher-Jon Awbrey Office Mgr.-Kay Hodges Staff Writer-Sarah Awbrey Staff Writer-Susan Pugliese satire that shocks and savages, Aljazeera continued, to an extent that would not be tolerated in other so-called liberal democracies. Shut up, Aljazeera. Despite all of the terror, Charlie Hebdo on Tuesday released its first image of Muhammad since the terror attack. In it, Muhammad is holding a sign saying I am Charlie Hebdo, and All is forgiven. Perhaps it is my Spanish blood, but forgiveness has its place, and this isn t it. In the old days, the Spanish dealt with homegrown Islamic terrorism for 00 years. While Richard the Lionheart went to Jerusalem on Crusade, Spanish soldiers fought in their own backyards until they forced the Muslim Moors out of Europe. I suppose the old Castilian in me despises the thought that all the life, blood, and treasure lost in the past to protect our Western Civilization is now threatened by weak, politically correct leaders intent on forming a culture of global diversity. In other words, they sell us out for access to cheap labor. In France, they have sold the French people out to the point of death, and worse, to the point of silence. At least these leaders showed up to lead a peaceful protest against terrorism on Sunday. The illustrious King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, they are not. I am a small person in a big world. I don t have any influence on anything, but I don t have to be silent. I am an American, born of Americans with long and honorable histories, and that s enough. And I have an old Spanish sword that I can defend myself with, if needed. The handle s mostly broken and it wobbles a little bit, and the blade is pretty dull - so it probably won t last long in a fight. But at least it won t be silent. In any event, this one s for you, you long-dead sons of Castile, and for you, too, Charlie Hebdo. Santiago y cierra, Espana! Serving the DeLeon area since 0, striving to be a positive voice in the community. 0 0 YEARS AGO Jan., 00. D Aun Taylor was named as the DeLeon Elementary Employee of the Week.

There are also instructions concerning where a righteous man should put his trust and meditation. In this glorious psalm, the righteous man is encouraged to avoid ungodliness of every form. In Psalm : the psalmist says, Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. A righteous man should never place his trust in ungodly people. They will not help him reach Heaven whatsoever. The Bible is very clear in saying that godly men should avoid evil companionship ( Corinthians :). The context of Corinthians : is actually speaking of those who do not believe in the resurrection, but the principle still applies. Wicked friends will most likely turn a person away from God and righteous living. Those who have obeyed the gospel are in Christ Jesus where all spiritual blessings flow. If a person is in Christ, old things should have passed away ( Corinthians :). When one as read earlier in the free press Carol Lewis and Derek Gilder were saluted as Bearcat and Lady Cat Basketball team members. 0 YEARS AGO Jan. 0,.

Our week started off slow because we were all tired from all the wonderful parties and celebrations at DeLeon Nursing and Rehab. But we came back with a game of ring toss and a who blinked first contest. We were so glad to see John Paul Loyless and the boys back from their holiday vacations. The music our community brings into the center makes everyone come out of their rooms and tap their toes. Thank you to each of you, our regular Thursday musicians, Tim Martin and of course the above mentioned talent as well. Lindsey Kerley was back and did a whole bunch of manicures.

Pastor Wilson and Rick Smitherman were on hand to share the Word and that too gets everyone out and about. Thank you to both of you. We played some noodle ball and even some volleyball and we had our first Resident Council meeting this New Year. Ethel Owen, our new president, held a great meeting where we shared good ideas and made some plans. We have an immediate challenge in front of us as our bus engine blew up. One of the things we all love to do is go on outings once a month and this dilemma will put a hitch in our get go. The residents talked about having a fund raiser to help get a new bus. I will keep you posted. Week after next we will be hosting our first Listening Ears support group which will Minister s Moments Micah Dawson-De Leon Church of Christ becomes a new creature, he should live differently than he did in his previous life. Most importantly, a righteous man should love God more than anything else and strive to please Him. It is important to look at things from a spiritual standpoint and not from an unspiritual standpoint. A righteous man should never associate with the wrong crowd ( Corinthians :-). There is absolutely no fellowship between righteousness and iniquity. There is also no communion between light and darkness. The righteous man should be holy and set apart to Christ Jesus. The psalmist continues by saying, But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night (:). The word of God directs our paths continually and teaches us how to live the Christian life. It contains everything we need for life and godliness ( Peter :). The spiritual life comes when one obeys the gospel and walks in newness of life (Romans :-). It is important that Christians show reverence and honor to God dance at Par Country Club.

When we have an activity where food is involved she is always on hand to add something homemade. Thank you, Jewell. We love you! If you re not sick come see us, if you are take care of yourselves. continually. God looks at the conduct one has when living the righteous life. The word of our Lord is truth (John :). When God speaks to us through His word, He is serious. The righteous man should always take God s commandments seriously. God takes no sin lightly. Anything that a person does for God should be taken seriously. Daily Bible study is important in the life of a Christian. It is important to meditate upon the precepts of God continually. When one awakes in the morning, he should think about the wonderful commandments and blessings of God. When one goes to sleep at night, he should do the exact same thing. In Psalm : the psalmist says, He shall be like trees planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. If a righteous man wants to be successful in his Christian walk, he must possess the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians :-). The Bible teaches what a Christian should meditate on (Philippians :). If one wants others to know that he is a Christian, he must let his light shine and never let Satan cover it (Matthew :). Heaven is too great to miss. If one remains faithful continually, God will reward him in the long run (Revelation :0). The righteous man will be successful if he runs the race with courage. Psalm is very well known. It contains several principles concerning the life of a righteous man. A righteous man is blessed if he avoids ungodliness and leaves his old life in the past. He should always place his trust and delight in God s law. If a man remains faithful and righteous, he should continually bear the fruit of the Spirit. In the end, God will reward him with a home in heaven. Cub Scout Meeting There will be a Cub Scout meeting for parents and leaders on Sunday, January, at :0 p.m. at the Scout Hut.

While ranching in Southwest Colorado, she received a prophetic word that she would be teaching women. She could hardly believe that she had anything to offer, but twelve years later she and her husband Calvin sold and moved their ranching operation to Comanche, Texas where the Lord began to bring the prophecy to fruition. Now spending more time in ministry than on horseback, she teaches a weekly Lady s Bible Study, and ministers one on one to hurting women.

Steve is one of the pioneers in hoop house design and construction. He has many years of experience in crop management and production in high tunnel houses and smaller hoop houses. Hoop houses have the potential to make our local producers even more efficient and profitable. Season extension is generally regarded by both growers and researchers as the single greatest benefit of growing in hoop houses. When properly managed, hoop houses are capable of extending the growing season for frost-sensitive crops by as much as 0 days; 0 days on the front end and 0 days on the back end of the growing season. The marketing advantage associated with extended season production can be significant.

Service in Hours - NOT DAYS Better Living For Texans Carolyn Balzen Eating Better on a Budget - 0 Tips to Help You Stretch Your Food Dollars Get the most for your food budget! There are many ways to save money on the foods that you eat. The three main steps are planning before you shop, purchasing the items at the best price, and preparing meals that stretch your food dollars.. Plan, plan, plan! Before you head to the grocery store, plan your meals for the week. Include meals like stews, casseroles, or stir-fries, which stretch expensive items into more portions. Check to see what foods you already have and make a list for what you need to buy.. Get the best price. Check the local newspaper, online, and at the store for sales and coupons. Ask about a loyalty card for extra savings at stores where you shop. Look for specials or sales on meat and seafood - often the most expensive items on your list.. Compare and contrast. Locate the Unit Price on the shelf directly below the product. Use it to compare different brands and different sizes of the same brand to determine which is more economical.. Buy in bulk. It is almost always cheaper to buy foods in bulk. Smart choices are family packs of chicken, steak, or fish and larger bags of potatoes and frozen vegetables. Before you shop, remember to check if you have enough freezer space.. Buy in season. Buying fruits and vegetables in season can lower the cost and add to the freshness. If you are not going to use them all right away, buy some that still need time to ripen.. Convenience costs... go back to the basics. Convenience foods like frozen dinners, pre-cut vegetables, and instant rice, oatmeal, or grits will cost you more than if you were to make them from scratch. Take the time to prepare your own and save.. Easy on your wallet. Certain foods are typically lowcost options all year round. Try beans for a less expensive protein food. For vegetables, buy carrots, greens, or potatoes. As for fruits, apples and bananas are good choices.. Cook once... eat all week. Prepare a large batch of favorite recipes on your day off (double or triple the recipe). Freeze in individual containers. Use them throughout the week and you won t have to spend money on take-out meals.. Get your creative juices flowing. Spice up your leftovers; use them in new ways. For example, try leftover chicken in a stir-fry or over a garden salad, or to make chicken chili. Remember, throwing away food is throwing away your money. 0. Eating out. Restaurants can be expensive. Save money by getting the early bird special, going out for lunch instead of dinner, or looking for for deals. Stick to water instead of ordering other beverages, which add to the bill. What to do with... A Can of Chicken Noodle Soup:. Add a handful of tiny broccoli florets.. Mix in a small can of corn niblets.. Add a handful of frozen green peas and fresh carrot slices.. Stir in minced and seeded small jalapeno peppers and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.. Stir in / cup drained and rinsed white beans and a tablespoon of store bought pesto. Macaroni and Cheese:. Add one cup of cooked ground beef. Season beef to your taste.. Stir in one cup of chopped ham.. Add / cup of cooked cauliflower. Add a dash of ground nutmeg for added flavor.. Add / cup of frozen peas or chopped broccoli.

Comanche County s general fund balance stood at $,, while the county s expenses were $,,. The remainder was $,. Property taxes [$,,], sales taxes [$,] and prisoner housing [$,00] were the highest items credited to the general fund. The county s highest expenditures were general administration [$,,], the administration of justice [$,,] and public welfare [$,0]. The Road and Bridge Break-in From page adult male, age, all of DeLeon entered the Comanche County Precinct yard and stole a 00 Ford Pickup belonging to Comanche County. The four suspects then allegedly drove to a business on US / East with plans to break in. The business owner foiled the burglary and shot at the subjects, striking one. Three of the suspects were immediately detained and the fourth turned himself in later that morning. According to a county official, the stolen county truck was recovered about :0 a.m. Monday on a county road behind a tobacco business in Hasse. The pickup had suffered minimal damage. The injured suspect is recovering from surgery at Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth. City Council From page serve temporarily until the May election, should contact the City Hall at -0. Candidates must be residents of the City of DeLeon and registered voters. Council members also heard a presentation from Waco dog trainer Nancy Bidwell, who provides K- police dogs to city police departments. Recently, Bidwell was approached to discuss selling a dog to the City of DeLeon. Bidwell s business is generally considered one of the best dog training businesses in the United States, and has provided K- services for Air Force One and the Dallas Mavericks basketball franchise. You need a single purpose drug dog to go to a school and put on a show, Bidwell said. My job is to make sure [the police and the city] don t get sued, Bidwell said. I don t want a handler if they re not going to do it correctly. If [the appointed K- officer] is not going to stay in DeLeon, you don t need a dog. It has to be about the dog, or the dog won t work for you. There s always a need for a K-, said DeLeon Police Chief Ben Rowell. A dog is the best tool you can use for drugs. City Administrator Karen Wilkerson asked if the dog could be retrained to work for a new handler, as DeLeon has tried implementing the use of three drug dogs in the past. Ultimately, all of these efforts proved unsuccessful, mostly due to officer turnover. Bidwell said that it could be done, but she advised that retraining was not the best option for the dog. You train the officer to the dog, Bidwell said. DeLeon Mayor Toby Hight said that he was sure that the DeLeon Police Department had found the right source for a drug dog in Nancy Bidwell. The council agreed to discuss the matter more at the next meeting of the council. In other action, the council tabled a discussion regarding the use of portable buildings as homes in DeLeon. Wilkerson said that she had received phone calls from the public asking if it was permissable to live in a portable building inside the city limits. Wilkerson said that there account for Precinct had $0, in receipts and expenses were $,0 which left a deficit of $,. Precinct s Road and Bridge account had $,0 in receipts and $00, in expenses with the difference being $0,. We didn t perform an operational audit and we have no evaluation of what you re trying to accomplish, said Rutledge, when asked about possible improvements. Really, it s just a financial audit. But I think the budget shows that you ve been good caretakers of public money and See County Court page All suspects have been or will be charged with Unauthorized Use of Motor Vehicle, a State Jail Felony, and Criminal Trespass, a Class B misdemeanor, reported the Sheriff s Office. According to sources at DeLeon ISD, as of this writing, the middle school student remains at Harris Methodist Hospital, one of the high school students has returned to DeLeon High School, and another is in juvenile detention in Granbury. The -year-old adult subject s name has been voluntarily withheld by the DeLeon Free Press in order to avoid identifying the three juveniles, at the request of the Comanche County Sheriff s Office. At this time, reported the Sheriff s Office, the incident is still under investigation. was no ordinance that said residents could not live in a portable building. As it has no wheels underneath, a portable building most likely does not fall under any mobile home ordinance. All agreed to table the matter until the next meeting of the council in order to gather more information. The council also approved allowing surveillance cameras to be installed at the Veterans Remembrance Wall, as long as those cameras did not require remote access to the city s network. Police Chief Rowell reported that the Texas Department of Public Safety would not allow a second party on the city network in any event, as that network houses some amount of sensitive information. The council also heard a second request from resident Diana Vasquez regarding the implementation of a neighborhood watch program. I know [the police] can t do it all, said Vasquez, but we can get some more eyes out [on the street]. According to the council, the residents of DeLeon did not need council approval to establish a neighborhood watch program. I would love to get something like that going, said Chief Rowell. Get me a list of names and we can set up a meeting. The council also reported that street lights near Vasquez s residence were soon to be operational, according to information the city had received from ONCOR. Finally, the council agreed to discontinue an annual $00 clothing allowance for water and street department staff. City workers will now receive a $00 annual paycheck in lieu of the clothing allowance. According to Wilkerson, the $00 clothing allowance was not compliant with IRS rules. The council also approved the purchase of work shirts from JT Promotions, which, reported Mayor Toby Hight, is owned by the wife of sitting council member James Beck. Wilkerson reported that Beck signed a conflict of interest statement. All approved the purchase of the work shirts except Beck, who abstained from the vote.

The two month tour will cover 0,000 miles and perform in 0 states, including Texas. For these two months, Krug and other band members will be living on a bus and showering in schools they practice at during the tour. Krug s mother said that band moms will help feed band members along the way, as there will be very few opportunities to eat out. DeLeon High School Band Director Chuck Miller introduced Krug to Genesis when he took the Mighty Maroon Marching Band to attend a performance in Dallas. Miller sparked Krug s interest in the Drum and Bugel Corps. Krug and his mother, Angie even flew out to County Court From page you live within your means. The total cost of the County s programs increased by. percent overall, with no new programs added this year, according to court minutes. You have to plan sometimes to reduce [the budget] to get through some tight periods, added Rutledge, in closing. You are fortunate that you have a good strong fund balance that you can go to. Precinct Commissioner Sherman Sides motioned to accept the 0 audit results. Precinct Commissioner Gary Underwood seconded the motion. The motion carried. Comanche County Sheriff Jeff Lambert then reported on a troubled generator at the county jail. About a month ago, the generator was real hard to start, said Lambert. We had it looked at and they got it up and running. Since that time, the generator has continued to have issues. Southern Plains, a company known for working on generators, was contacted to look at the generator. They determined that the block heater and the battery charging system had gone out as well as a few other things. We had two options. Either get a rental or move all the inmates out, said Lambert. It s part of the law. By law, jails are required to have generators. A rented generator is currently being used. The plan, added Lambert, is to have Southern Plains repair the jail s generator and then place it under contract. The contract would be with Southern Plains for servicing the generator in the hopes of possibly preventing major issues in the future. No further action was taken. Next, Commissioners Johnson and Gillette motioned and seconded to approve the deputation of Faylene Brown, who will serve as deputy county treasurer. The motion carried. Commissioners Underwood and Johnson then made the motion and second to acknowledge that Comanche County Treasurer Pasty Phifer had completed her training requirements for the Open Meetings Act and Public Information Act. The motion carried. In other news, the court turned its attention to the renewal of a contract with Unifirst for precinct uniforms. Indianapolis, Indiana last year to see the World Finals Competition at Lucas Oil Stadium, the home field of the Indianapolis Colts. Miller continued to help by encourageing Krug and helping with the musical side of the audition. This summer, Miller plans to once again take the Mighty Maroon Marching Band to see a Genesis performance. This time, the Mighty Maroon will go to San Antonio, where one of their own will be performing. Genesis band members pay membership tuition and fees and additional fees for monthly camps, which helps offset a portion of the cost. Anyone wishing to sponsor Krug during his time with Genesis is able to make a donation online at: and on the second page there is a method and opportunity to donate to individual Genesis band memebers like Baxter Krug. The proposed contract from Unifirst includes a five percent price increase every year for their service and a 0 month timeframe on the contract. Currently, each precinct pays $ monthly to Unifirst. The commissioners agreed that those employees who use the service are satisfied. However, Precinct has only one employee who uses the laundry service. Commissioner Johnson suggested that Precinct be excluded from the new contract if possible. Commissioner Sides recommended a month contract instead of a 0 month contract. Comanche County Attorney Craig Willingham suggested that the commissioners determine if the service was cost effective by looking at how many employees use the service. Commissioners Sides and Underwood motioned and seconded to table the renewal of the Unifirst contract until answers could be obtained. The motion carried. Then, Commissioners Johnson and Gillette motioned and seconded to approve the 0 appointments to the County Historical Commission. The motion carried. Those appointments include Jon Awbrey, Gary Steele, Nancy Wilkerson, Joe Allen, Rose Taylor, Anna Thompson, Richard Pinkard, Rita Trosper, Preston Cox, Curtis Lesley, Sharla Cheatham, Hadley Scott, Linda Frank, Jerry R.

Once upon a time I made a perfect pie crust. The end. Then I wake up to the realization that this has never happened. We had a very small family get-together at our house the other day to decorate for Christmas and eat supper. I made Paula Deen s goulash (I ll save that for a later day), but I also wanted to make my sweet, hard working husband a buttermilk pie. His favorite. The pie was supposed to be a surprise and I was already seeing the look of delight on Jon s face when he saw it. Some of you may remember I recently bought the The Amish Cookbook specifically for the pat-a-pan pie crust. The goulash was already at the simmer point and so I set out to make the gorgeous pie and pie crust I envisioned in my head. I was already planning the phone call to my mama, telling her about how perfect it all turned out and how proud I was of myself. Can t you picture it? Golden sun beams shining down on me, angels singing as I pull this buttermilk pie out of the oven. Let s just say that phone call didn t go EXACTLY how I planned. I followed the recipe to a tee and then got to work on the filling. The buttermilk pie filling is also in The Amish Cookbook, and I ll put it in here as the happier side of this story. Pie crust in the pan, check. Filling poured into the crust, check. Everything into the oven, check. Goulash is on the stove, pie is in the oven. Betty Crocker, you ve got nothing on me, girl. Except for the fact that there seemed to be more pie filling than crust and it sloshed over the edge. Yeah, it ll be fine. I set the timer and prayed. Thirty-five minutes later I pulled out the rack and the filling was still jiggling. Yeah, it ll be fine. I shoved the pie back in the oven, set the timer again, and said another prayer. God, are you listening to me?! An hour later when the pie filling was actually firm enough to resemble pie, I pulled it out. The crust was a little bit on the dark side, but it would be fine. Right? By the time Jon got home I was feeling much less like Betty Crocker, and the choir of angels was nowhere to be found. He reassured me and our evening of goulash, Christmas carols, and decorating our tree was a success. Then came the pie. Sarah Stews By Sarah Briscoe-Awbrey Jon got the knife and went to cut into the pie. The knife cut through the filling, but wouldn t even budge through the crust. The pie crust might as well have been the sole of a boot. He hacked at it, stabbed at it, and even sawed it like an old limb. To no avail. The pie crust didn t want to play. We finally just ate the pie filling with a fork in the pie pan and called it a day. Thank goodness Jon is a roll with the punches kind of husband. He never said a word about my epic fail. When I went to clean up the pan I could see the marks in the crust where Jon had attempted to get him a piece. That pan had to be soaked in hot soapy water for two days before it came clean. It may need therapy for all the emotional damage I did to it. Please, do not let my disaster cause you not to try this crust! Give it a try, and then let me know how it turns out for you. Best wishes for making: Pat-A-Pan Piecrust / c. all-purpose flour / tsp. sugar / tsp. salt / c. vegetable oil tbsp. cold milk Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a -inch pie pan and mix with your fingertips until evenly blended. In a measuring cup, combine the oil and milk and beat until creamy. Pour all at once over the flour mixture. Mix with a fork until the flour mixture is completely moistened. Pat the dough with your fingers, first at the sides of the plate and then across the bottom. Flute the edges. The shell is now ready to be filled. If you are preparing a shell to fill later or your recipe requires a prebaked crust, preheat oven to degrees. Prick the surface of the pastry with a fork and bake until golden brown, minutes. Check often and prick more if needed. Homemade Buttermilk Pie / c. butter, softened c. fresh buttermilk lg. eggs / c. sugar tbsp. all-purpose flour tsp. nutmeg Preheat the oven to 0 degrees. In a large bowl, beat together butter, buttermilk, eggs, sugar, and flour with a whisk. Pour the filling into the unbaked piecrust. Sprinkle the top with the nutmeg. Bake until the pie turns a golden brown colour and a butter knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about minutes. Cool on a wire rack or windowsill until the pie is firm, about minutes. Store any leftovers in a sealed container. The pie will keep for about two days. I wish you all the best of luck and here s to gorgeous pie crusts.

Making a Difference Gina Caswell Kelly Did you make resolutions this year? I didn t really. Not officially anyway. I think we all make unofficial resolutions to be better, look better, do better, or just whatever will be better. I think we all want to be better. Or we should anyway. No matter how perfect you might think you are, there is always room for improvement. This may be especially true for the one who thinks he is perfect! Just saying. When we look at making improvements in our lives, there are many magazines and books that want to show you and tell you how to go about this. We can cut various things out of our diet. We can add in a workout routine. We can become in tune with the needs around us. The options are limitless! You too, can become a brand new person in just three easy steps! You can follow all the options available in books and magazines designed to make you better or, you can just pick one book to follow. You can just pick one idea to follow. You can make it all so much more simple. In Psalm :0, David asks the LORD for help. He wanted to make a change. It wasn t a new year s change. It was a change of heart on the day that he needed it. David prayed, Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. David didn t wait for New Year s Day. When his heart became so burdened with the sin in his life, David cried out to God immediately. He asked God for a clean heart. and a renewal of what was once good in him. We can all pray that prayer and we should pray that prayer. We all need a clean heart and a renewed spirit within us. David s prayer was just a request for the honoring of a promise. In Ezekiel :-, God promised, Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you;... I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes. The promises that God made in the Old Testament are just as true for us today. If you are standing in the doorway of this new year that promises great challenge and great change, pray David s prayer. If you are standing in the doorway of this new year that looks as though things are going to go great, pray this prayer. In fact, just pray this prayer. Daily. Every single day. It doesn t matter what resolutions you made or didn t make. It doesn t matter who you are or what you have done. If you are living and breathing, you need a clean heart. A clean heart is the start of every change you need to make in your life. Pray David s prayer and allow God to help you make the changes you need to make and meet the challenges which are before you. It will make a difference! Our Lives, Our Stories: America s Greatest Generation Set To Open --January at Eastland County Museum Who speaks for the experiences of a generation and their impact on the world around them? What experiences help to create a sense of shared identity? Our Lives, Our Stories: America s Greatest Generation, a new exhibition opening January at the Eastland County Museum, explores the life arc of the World War II generation as told in their own words. Born in the 0s and 0s, these people were decisively shaped by the Depression and World War II. They went on to make the baby boom and shape the economic boom of the postwar era. Today well into the st century we are all living with their legacy. But who are these people upon whom the title of greatest has been bestowed? Our Lives, Our Stories, draws on memories and oral histories gathered by the Minnesota Historical Society to help us understand who these people really were. The exhibition begins with the babies of the 0s and 0s, and then explores the human impact of events that marked major turning points in their lives, including the Depression, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, World War II, the rising awareness of Civil Rights, and the growth of media-driven consumer culture during the post-war boom. While this generation s identity is clearly linked to World War II, the focus of Our Lives, Our Stories seeks to restore wholeness to our understanding of them by allowing people to tell their stories along the larger arc of their lives. In the process, their diversity of memories reveals a complex mix of real people who truly helped shape the world we live in today. Local organizers of Our Lives, Our Stories have put a personal touch to the national exhibit by conducting their own oral interviews on video of local and area veterans. These interviews have been combined into a special documentary, Answering the Call, with a special viewing to be held at p.m. at the Majestic Theatre in Eastland immediately following the opening ceremony and reception for the Our Lives, Our Stories exhibit Saturday, February at 0:00 a.m. at the Eastland County Museum, featuring guest speaker Retired Air Force Colonel Kenny Weldon, a Stephenville native currently serving as mayor of that city. Our Lives, Our Stories: America s Greatest Generation will run through March, 0. Exhibit hours are Tuesday through Saturday 0 a.m. until p.m. and Thursdays 0 a.m. until p.m., and private tour groups can arrange appointments by calling the Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council at --0. The Museum is located at South Seaman St., on the square in Eastland, Texas. Curriculum is also available for educators who would like to teach the subject to their classes. Our Lives, Our Stories: America s Greatest Generation has been made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Local funding and support has been provided by the City of Eastland, First Financial Bank, Texas Bank, Texas Commission on the Arts, Comanche Electric Cooperative Association, Mary & Tommy Warford, Alphagraphics, KATX/KWBY Radio, Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council, TXOL Internet, and the Eastland County Museum.

15 Proposal would put contracts under increased scrutiny AUSTIN Signaling his intent to promote transparency and accountability in the th Texas Legislature, House Speaker Joe Straus on Jan. announced that in the coming weeks the House would release a budget proposal designed to strengthen oversight of state agency contracts. The Legislature convenes Jan.. Agencies or institutions of higher education, under the proposal, would have to meet new reporting requirements prior to awarding a contract or making a purchase worth more than $0 million, Straus said. Requirements also would apply to contracts and purchases worth more than $ million and which do not go through a competitive bidding process, he added. At least 0 days prior to making such an expenditure, a state agency issuing a contract would have to notify the Legislative Budget Board, governor, state auditor, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, chair of the Senate Finance Committee and chairs of any other committees with jurisdiction over contracting. Along with that notification, an agency, before finalizing such a contract, would provide to the Legislative Budget Board and the others: Information about the nature of the contract and the vendor awarded it. A certification by the agency s executive director that the process used to award the contract or make the purchase complies with the state s Contract Management Guide, State of Texas Procurement Manual and all applicable laws. A certification by the agency s executive director that the agency can verify vendor performance and deliverables, payment of goods and services only within the scope of the contract, and other information Furthermore, Straus said, the next state budget will make clear that the state comptroller should not allow the expenditure of funds if the Legislative Budget Board says the requirements listed above have not been met. AG Paxton is sworn in Ken Paxton of McKinney was sworn in as Texas s st attorney general on Jan. with Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, governor-elect Greg Abbott, lieutenant governorelect Dan Patrick and Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett, family and friends present for the Senate Chamber ceremony. Paxton, a McKinney Republican who served as a state senator from 0 to 0 and as a member of the Texas House from 00 to 0, succeeds governor-elect Abbott as the state s chief law enforcement officer. We must be vigilant and stand our ground, guarding against the complacency that could erode everything that we ve worked so hard to build, Paxton said after taking the oath of office. We will remain steadfast in our dedication to principles and values that have made Texas great. Ag chief Miller takes oath Sid Miller of Stephenville was sworn in as Texas th commissioner of agriculture before a crowd of family, friends, supporters and colleagues during a ceremony at the Capitol on Jan.. Gov. Perry, who served as agriculture commissioner from -, administered the oath. Present were Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, lieutenant governorelect Patrick, three former Texas agriculture commissioners, several legislators and other state officeholders. Agriculture touches the lives of every man, woman and child in Texas more times a day than any other industry, Miller said. It doesn t matter whether you live on a farm in Hockley County or in the suburbs of Houston. Life doesn t work without agriculture. Miller, a cattle rancher, farmer and owner/operator of a commercial nursery business, previously served six terms as member of the Texas House of Representatives. races require runoffs Special elections were conducted Jan. for one state Senate seat and two state House seats. No candidate received more than 0 percent of the vote in any of the contests, so runoffs will be held in the near future between the top two vote-getters in each election. In Bexar County, State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, a Democrat, received percent of the vote in a five-candidate race to fill the Senate District seat vacated by Leticia Van de Putte. State Rep. Jose Menendez, also a Democrat, placed second, receiving percent of the vote. The winner of the runoff will finish out the remainder of Van de Putte s four-year term, which expires in 0. In five-way race to succeed Tim Kleinschmidt as the state representative for House District the top two vote-getters were Republicans John Cyrier, who received percent of the vote, and Brent Golemon, who received percent. The district includes Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales, Karnes and Lee counties. Kleinschmidt resigned from the House in November to accept a position as general counsel for the Texas Department of Agriculture. Six candidates competed in the special election to succeed state Rep. Mike Villarreal in the San Antonio House District seat. Democrat Diego Bernal received percent of the special election vote and in the runoff will face Republican Nunzio Previtera who received percent. Villarreal, like Van de Putte, is a candidate for mayor of San Antonio. FOR RENT FOR RENT COMANCHE COUNTY R.V. PARK Has pull thru - Full Hook-ups!
