From the horror of Omaha Beach to final victory: the Earl Parker story
Earl Parker was born in Frankfort, KY., 89 years ago, the son of a retail dairyman. During high school (1942) he tried to join the Marines, but failed the vision test. Disappointed, he entered Eastern Kentucky University for a degree in physical education and then the Army called. Drafted in March 1943, he endured 13 weeks of basic training (infantry) in Georgia, and in November shipped out for England. There he became 1st Infantry Division, the Big Red Oneand trained to invade France during Operation Overlord. As a machine gun team member, he practiced intensely all over England until June 1944.

was bad, so they launched on the 6th when it was worse. PFC Earls vessel, an LCVP carrying 30 G.I.s, was deployed nine miles off Omaha Beach, then pressed on under power. The enemy was mightily prepared. Soon their coxswain (skipper) was

hit by shrapnel, dropping the off ramp, still in deep water. All G.I.s carried heavy packs and sunk like stones. Earl finally disengaged all gear (except his side arm) and surfaced, then swam to an invasion obstacle topped with a land mine. It could blow any second so he left. Some statisticians had predicted 50-percent casualties on the landing and Earls best friend did not make it. Weapons lay everywhere ashore, so Earl snatched a carbine until finding a machine gun. They topped the first hill and captured a pillbox. Omaha Beach was so grim that General Eisenhower considered withdrawal, but did not. From the start, Earl was aware of the enemys

superior fire power, nevertheless they must push on into the hedgerows of Normandy. Here the dug in Germans clearly had the advantage, and the Yanks paid dearly for every inch gained. The cost in lives was prohibitive, so something had to be done. Finally General Bradleys bold plan to carpet bomb an entire section of German line was executed. This incessant, powerful bombardment created the necessary break out through Hitlers western wall. Now the allies opportunity to fight in open country and overcome was possible. The long, dangerous offensive through France, Belgium and Germany was a constant series of foxholes, attacks, repelling counter attacks and more foxholes. The fearful German 88s (artillery) were a nightmare. Its concussion alone could toss a G.I. around, cover him with dirt and bloody his nose. C rations often ran short so occasional captured German stores sustained them. Much later, the Yanks got a three day rest. One of the most intense struggles was for Aachen. The battle for this first German city was horrificand both sides struggled desperately to prevail. In the Huertken Forrest, some shrapnel caught Earls

left arm, hospitalizing him in Belgium. Soon thereafter he was flown to Wales for recuperation. When released he became clerk typist, serving in Versailles, Reims, and finally Frankfort (Gr.)...Eisenhowers SHAEF headquarters until May of 1945. In Reims, France, he observed the German high command goose step in, then surrender. Back in Kentucky, Earl reconnected with college for his masters and started his doctorate. After three years of teaching/coaching in Louisville, he bonded with The Tenneco Company, richly diversified in chemicals, pipelines, agriculture and energy. Although starting as skilled labor in pipelines, he rapidly took on significant new responsibility in upper management, and that brought him to Houston. Once he settled in comfortably, he and his wife

Marilyn searched for country property, and purchased acreage near Shiner. They moved into these new digs during 1986 for good. An organization man, Earl joined civic organizations and busied himself with Brahma cattle and making hay. Asked why the G.I.s prevailed in Europe, Earl responded like this: It was allied air superiority starting at Normandy, interdiction of enemy fuel supplies and transportation, untrammeled U.S. manufacturing capabilityand finally the American spirit. The German army was so rigidly structured that if leadership was a casualty, sometimes the troops were immobilized. On the other hand, by Gods grace that generation of GIs was often motivated and innovative enough to gain the victory through their own ingenuity.

I figured out why Austin is weird: its the mountains

Its been noted more than a few times that the people in and around Austin arent quite like the rest of us. They celebrate the fact that theyre weird. I finally figured out why all the people in the Austin area are so different from the rest of us Texans. Granted, many of them arent really Texans theyre transplants from California and other similarly dynsfunctional provinces of the United States who have brought their weirdness to Austin. Real Texans dont ban plastic shopping bags, shout raise taxes! at every breath and sport bumper stickers calling for a ban on fracking on the backs of their $100,000 gas-guzzling SUVs. But it was during a trip to Marble Falls on Monday to participate in a Tea Party event that it dawned on me how these people could move to Texas and still think they can act like theyre in San Francisco.

Dances with Chihuahuas

Dave Mundy
General Manager
Its a geographical thing. The mountains of Central Texas remind them of the Sierra Madre. They think theyre still on the Left Coast. When God designed Texas, he made Austin for them, because He gave the rest of us nice, logical, relatively flat terrain. Obviously He knew we would need a place to store our crazies, so He created Austin. The area around and north of Austin is known as the Hill Country, but as far as Im concerned, it really should be called the Mid-Texas Mountain range.

A time for love, a time for hate, a time for peace, I swear its not too late. The Byrds, Turn! Turn! Turn!

Remembering those most turbulent of times, 1968

Jim Cunningham

Those arent hills. Hills, you see, are like highway overpasses. Here in Gonzales, for example, we have The Hill a nice, gentle slope. That stuff in and around Austin: thats mountains. I know, because Ive driven through the Rockies and the Appalachians, white-knuckled the whole time, and thats the same feeling I got driving along Highway 281 from Austin to Marble Falls and back Monday. I hate driving in mountains. When youre driving on hills, youre in no danger of falling off. When youre driving in the mountains, you never know when youre going to top the crest of a peak and see nothing but an oncoming guardrail and empty space in front of you before you plunge thousands of feet to a horrific death in the river far, far below. I am not, by nature, acrophobic. When I first joined the Marine Corps, they made me a telephone cable splicer, so I played volleyball

on top of tall poles. I have no fear of flying, although Im probably on the no-fly list these days. (Admittedly, Im not real fond of helicopters, but I know most chopper pilots do not lay their birds on their sides while making a turn, giving the ground-pounders theyre carrying a wonderful view of Onslow Beach, N.C., through the open doorway of the CH-53. That was NOT funny, Sir.) On the other hand, I cannot admire photos of the Grand Canyon without getting vertigo, or step near the full-length windows of a tall office building because I just know someone is going to shove me through. That explains a lot about the transplanted San Franciscans currently inhabiting Austin: theyve spent their entire lives about to fall off the mountain and its driven them nuts. Those of us who live in the saner, flatter precincts of Texas, on the other hand, dont have

to worry about falling off the highway and can thus turn our thoughts to deeper things, such as raising food and families in sane fashion, how to get that oil from underneath us to energize our economy, and how to convince the San Franciscans to stop trying to turn our state capital into another of their utopian communes. Admittedly, some sane people do choose to live in the mountains of Central Texas; after all, the event I attended Monday was hosted by the Highland Lakes Tea Party. How those folks manage to retain their sanity while not falling off the mountains, Ill never know. But the rest of us, Im sure, are content to let the Central Texas Mountain Range be the reservation where we keep our most crazed liberals. Only problem is, some of them have gotten off the reservation and escaped to San Antonio.

It was in the springtime when an uncle took me away. From school. So I became a victim of abuse. By a government. Ours. What happened. Was this. It was the spring semester of 19 and 68. And I was enrolled at North Texas State University. For those unfamiliar with Texas geography, North Texas State is located in North Texas. Anyshucks, a few days before my 24th birthday, which falls on April 19, I received a greetings from my Uncle Sam. Informing me to report for a physical. Back then, when I was young, Id work a spell and then go to school for a semester or two. Prior to attempting to become learned at NTSU this depleted mind and I had received academic transcripts from Texas Tech, Sam Houston State, Temple Junior College, San Antonio College, along with having been previously enrolled at NTSU in the fall of 63. Well, in the spring of 68 I was majoring in architecture, with a minor in journalism, at the time and working part-time over in Dallas at the Goodyear retread plant. So my Pappy went to the draft board located in the county seat, Marlin, and told em that his only boy was studying at the time and could he be excused from the physical until late May when the semester was over. The plea fell on a deaf ear. The Selective Service System said a fella going on 24 years old shouldve finished his education by then. And that he no longer deserved a II-S (student) deferment.

On Thursday, August 29, fast food workers in many American cities launched a strike for higher wages. They are supported by the liberal Service Employees International Union (SEIU). In typical liberal fashion, the SEIU is deceiving employees with half truths while ignoring the realities of life and America. Most people feel everyone is equal and everyone should be paid equally. They are quick to accept the idea that all people should have a living wage and dignity at work. Those assumptions are great ideas. However, in real life we are not created equal except before the law. Some people are short, others tall. Some are heavy (can I say fat anymore?), some are thin. Some are old, and some are young. Some are educated and trained, others not. Some are motivated and other not so much. Also, our lives are influenced by the choices we make. Bad choices and deci-

Fast-food strikers: more class warfare

doomed because of birth to labor into the class they were born. This is another lie leftists try to sell. America has been the land of opportunity because people have always been able to come here and fulfill their dreamwith ambition, vision, and work. Fourth, American fast food workers are not tied to their jobs like serfs or slaves. They can quit and search for better paying jobs. The fast food industry has always been a starter or temporary job industry for people because of its wages. I would seriously question any person who wants to make cooking and serving burgers at McDonalds a life career. Finally, the free market is the best way to allow an economy to grow and expand, and thus create a better society. A growing and expanding economy allows for jobs, high paying and starter/temporary jobs, to be created. A free market economy will have many jobs where employers and employees can compete for each other. Employers will use wages to entice workers, and workers will use their abilities to merit wages. But liberals, with the help and support the Obama Administration, have pushed class warfare into yet another facet of the American economy. Its not enough that Obama has created a divisive society based on race and gender, or political atmosphere that ignores the U.S. Constitutionnow he and his liberal friends want to undermine the economy with class warfare. The question is whether business leaders, particularly small business leaders, and politicians will stand up to this socialist charade. We cannot let the economic model that made America the greatest nation on earth fall victim to liberals who exploit socially insecure people with half-truths. If you dont like your current job, find another but dont expect the government or someone else to change things for you.

So I was ordered to report to Marlin on a day at the tail end of April to take a bus ride up to Dallas for the physical. Well, Denton, home of NTSU, as I noted is up in North Texas and just a beer and half drive from Dallas. So I reasoned I could just show up at the induction center and forego the trip to Marlin. Wrong. The draft board and I didnt coincide on the logistical reasoning. Now at NTSU the west coast and east coast ideology of protesting this (Vietnam) and that (conscription-draft) had yet to infiltrate the thinking of the clean-cut students. The radicalism and hippiedom would come later. As the 60s would blemish Americas image. And the turbulent 60s reached an unraveling in 1968. Event after event whorled out of control. North Korea seized the Pueblo, a U.S. Navy ship in January and held 83 on board as spies and in January-February the North Vietnamese launched a TET offensive, a crucial turning part in the Vietnam War. In March, American GIs massacred 347 civil-

ians at My Lai in that strange little country called Vietnam. And Czechoslovakia was invaded by Russians in August. It was a year that became more and more volatile. Stateside, an angry and violent America endured. In a matter of months, two assassinations occured as Martin Luther King was slain in Memphis on April 4 and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was shot in Los Angeles on June 5. He died the next day. President Lyndon Johnson announced in March he would not run for another term. So the stage was set for more unrest at the Democratic Convention in Chicago as antiwar protesters converged on the windy city to get the donkey-doers to soften their stance on Vietnam. The riots of 1968 took 40 lives and only a calculator could come up with a ballpark figure on the property damage that was done. Martial Law was declared in Chicago and Baltimore. The Democrats became known as a party of disorder as the GOPs Richard Nixon and his Silent Majority in favor of the Vietnam War saw Nixon, while winning only 43.4 percent of the popular vote, cruise to a landslide win with the electoral vote. And then there was this lean fella that had became too old in 1968 to be considered a cool Joe College. So I took a drive to Marlin and boarded a bus to retrace the route I had just travelled. Despite having endured a head injury and having lapsed into a coma from a car wreck in 59. And having suffered through a major leg operation due to a football mishap. And being afflicted with asthma. Despite all that, I was de-

clared One-A. Fit for duty. Textbooks and lectures in buildings situated in a pastoral setting gave way to the lovely landscape of Fort Polk (Tigerland), La. in the heat of the summer. Where friendly drill sergeants cared about my well-being 24-7. Myself and the other recruits of Company D were coached in the fine art of latrine duty and KP and the joy of cleaning out a grease trap. We were instructed in the balance of the front-leanand-rest position, along with the maintenance of an M-14 rifle. Policing an area was of high priority along with field striping a cigarette butt. Bivouacs were camping trips and hikes to the shooting range and classes on how to treat a gaping belly wound occupied a portion of our time during the eight and a half weeks of training. Basically, basic was a time in our lives of learning how to die. Then it was off to Fort Monmouth, N.J. for Advanced Individual Training. My MOS was 84B20 Still Photography. And the winter of 68 was a simple time. Shooting on film was much more creative than popping off rounds at popup targets. However, in March of 1969, with 1968 only a fading shadow dancer, I landed in Vietnam. Where with a .44 sidearm and a .30 carbine and several Canon cameras Id be shooting em up for longer than I care to remember. But at the oddest of times I oft-times do. Remember down the road. The 60s arent over yet, not until the fat lady gets high. Ken Kesey

sions lead in one direction, and good ones in another. Such is life. In America, people usually ended up in a given socio-economic status because of their choices in life, not because some Supreme Power dictated it. Tomorrow, the rich can become poor and the poor rich if they make the right choices. Third, Americas society and economy is not static and rigid where a person is

EOG has also notified appropriate regulatory agencies. In addition, Wild Well Control has been contracted to assist in the response effort. EOG is assembling well control experts and specialized equipment to safely control the well and extinguish the fire, Leonard said. The companys priorities remain constant: protect the safety of those responding to the incident, neighbors in the area and the environment. Leonard added that It is too early to determine the cause of the incident.

Several readers contacted The Cannon with unofficial information theyd received from neighbors and witnesses indicating workers on the rig had become concerned after hearing an underground explosion prior to the eruption of fire on the surface. First responders, including fire departments from Yoakum and Shiner were still on the scene at dusk on Wednesday. In addition to the rig and equipment onscene, one trucking company which had vehicles at the site reported two of its 18-wheelers were also destroyed. Two houses located within a quarter-mile of the site were initially evacuated, but residents were able to return to their homes within hours.

DYNAMIC: Location in Gonzales is ideal

Continued from page A1

Isabel Kelley, 1924-2013 Isabel Marie Orts Kelley, beloved mother, died peacefully at Gonzales Memorial Hospital. Isabel was born to August & Annie (Oehler) Orts in Poth on Feb. 15, 1924, one of 5 girls. She attended Poth Schools, was senior class salutatorian, and a volleyball & tennis athlete. After graduation she attended Santa Rosa School of Nursing and became a Registered Nurse. She accepted a job at Crews Hospital in Gonzales. Shortly after coming to Gonzales she met and married Sterling E. Kelley and they had four children. Isabel was the Director of Nurses for many years at Crews Hospital. She


panel shop and administrative staff for the Technical Division. We plan on breaking ground in about a month and hope to complete construction by the beginning of next year, said construction manager Peter Reeves. We will also be putting in a street from the cul-de-sac in Commerce Court over to Harwood Road. Phase Two is going to encompass the property to the north on two and a half acres, where a 10,000 square-foot light fabrication facility will be erected for the companys Mechanical Division. Im not exactly sure when were going to start work on Phase Two, but it will probably overlap Phase One, Reeves said. The Gonzales location will join the companys location in Carrizo Springs in hopes of further enhancing Dynamic Industries as a premier player in the Eagle Ford Shale. The location of the city is considered ideal by the company because of its position in relation to the Eagle Ford Shale and the newly-active Eaglebine Shale. The Eagle-

bine is the confluence of the Eagle Ford and the Woodbine Sandstone, which was famously drilled in the 1930s during the discovery of the giant East Texas Field. Activity in the Eaglebine is being concentrated primarily in Brazos, Grimes, Madison and Walker counties. Based on our research, Gonzales happens to be a the conjunction of the Eagle Ford shale to the south and the west, said Vicky Helm of Dynamics business development of shale plays. As the developing Eaglebine shale continues moving east and north, we found Gonzales to be the perfect location for us to service all of our clients within a two-hour window from here. We are so happy with the

amount of support we have gotten from the City of Gonzales and the Gonzales Economic Development Corporation in helping us with the relocation and acquiring of the property, said Reeves. Its been like a breath of fresh air. Weve never received a welcoming like the one weve gotten from Gonzales. The move will lead to the creation of several new jobs in town. Over the course of a year, Dynamics Carrizo location grew from a team of five to over 150 and Helm said she expects the same pattern of growth in Gonzales. Dynamic Industries, Inc. offers a full range of services including site development, I&E, automation, control panels, fire & safety and H2S services.

An educational First Friday Coffee slated

First Friday Coffee will be hosted by the Gonzales ISD Education Foundation at the newly renovated East Avenue Cafeteria. If you plan to attend, please present your valid ID at the main office. A little about the GISD Education Foundation from the Gonzales ISD website: One of the Goals of the GISD Education Foundation is to provide teachers with the additional resources to develop creative learning opportunities that inspire and encourage student success. To help meet that goal, the Foundations Program Committee held a grant training workshop at the beginning of the school year. The purpose of the workshop was to provide a platform to inform the teachers about the grant application process; and to encourage them to apply for additional funding. The Programs Committee, along with other community volunteers, conducted a blind review of the applications scoring them according to need, objectives, description, budget. The Foundation is excited to announce the recipients of the first GISD Education Foundation Grants. For more information, please visit http://www.gonzales. On September 14 the Sacred Heart Church will host its annual Jamaica! This year the entertainment will be provided by Kerr Creek Band, DJ El Piojo, DJ Estruendo, Labroma Inolvidable, and Los Terris de San Luis. They will also have many activities including Mexi-

These cooking shows on TV are just totally amazing. Our average Texan in Gonzales County is not going to pull out Coriander Seed, Mustard Seed, Cumin Seed and Saffron out of their spice supply cabinet. Somehow I just dont see how a burger made out of lamb is going to cut it. At least that poor lady that looks like she just went through a wind tunnel from the looks of her hair does admit that she gets a little wild with her cooking and drinks as much of the wine as she puts in the food. I think her name is Ann Burrell. I think I can say these things because she is a public figure. Ol Rachel Ray says to use a cast iron pan. Now our grandmothers could have told everyone that. So feed your family this week because everyone will be hungry after school. Maybe some good Texas burgers would work best.

didnt say who won. Then Wade and Lola were enjoying some fajitas that Michael had made. They were out on the back porch talking to Joshua when they noticed that their good dog Pluto was staring at something very intensely right in front of their pump house. Wade took a hoe and went to see what it was and sure enough it was a big fat rattle snake stretched out. It was about five foot long and had seven rattlers. Joe Kotwig nearly stepped on one of those dear rattle snakes while putting out a bale of hay. His foot managed to stay up off the snake and the pitch fork went down on the snake. Then it landed upside down on the fence as per tradition to see if we could draw some rain down. It thundered. Barbara Wenske Pohmeyers husbands killed a 36 inch on their property. Watch out they are hunting a cool place too. Another thing that is hunting a dab of water is those fire ants. Some of them look like mutated fire ants but their sting is just as bad. Those little devils are persistent and they hurt. And they are very thirsty. They are all over you or the crackers or your child/pet before you know it, so watch out. And they dont care whether it is night or day. They are just like a drunk. They just keep bumbling and bumping around like lost sheep. I watched the same two ants have a head on collision with the same door facing three times in a

row last night. It was good to see Ina Gay Orum and Janet Clark at the Monthalia United Methodist Church last Sunday. Then I heard that Pastor Paul was trying to get these kids to drink dirty water. I guess that you will just have to back track it to get the low down on this. Since I have been waking up feeling like a freight train ran over me backwards, I guess I will have to do the same. It has been so hot this last couple of days that even Pepe has been lethargic. Not one of the outside critters has been inclined to move. Even poor Nicki D, the sixteen year old cat, has just laid up there on his box and given out one big

yowl. He didnt even move an inch. I am so amazed at Nicki. He was born with his hip bones outside of its sockets. I took him to Dr. McKee and he said it wouldnt do any good to operate on his hips. He said that I would just have to watch him and protect him the best I could. For a long time he had a big black cat who was his friend. Unfortunately about three years ago something killed my big black cat. Nicki and I hunted him for days, but we never found him. So now Nicki rarely leaves the yard. We baby old Nicki D with special favors and now Itsy Bitsy is his protector. Have a good week, and God Bless.

can Bingo, annual Jamaica Auction, Ballet Folklorico, and one of my favorites, the Jamaica raffle! Since I can remember, my family has purchased a couple of raffle tickets every year. One year I actually won a microwave that I still use to this day! Another great event coming up in September is the First Shot Cook-off that will be held at J.B. Wells Park. I was able to attend last years event and I was thoroughly impressed as to how many participants were there. Growing up in Texas you are always surrounded by BBQ, especially in our neck of the woods! Last year I indulged in some of the best BBQ I had ever tasted! (Ive even been a judge at the Austin Rodeo Cook-Off) I look forward to attending this years competition and good luck to all the participants. Alongside the IBCA and CASI competitors there will be an antique tractor exhibit, arts & crafts vendors, and of course the Come & Pull it Tractor Pull!

Today in Texas History

Sept. 5, 1877

Districts must hold meetings on CSCOPE

On this day in 1877, Texas outlaw Bill Longley was found guilty of murder by a Lee County jury and sentenced to death. Longley was born in Austin County in 1851. Tales of his criminal career are a mixture of actual facts and his boasts, but it is known that at the end of the Civil War he took up with other young men and terrorized newly freed slaves. He took part in a number of crimes, including several murders, and enlisted in and deserted from the U.S. cavalry twice. In Lee County in March 1875, Longley shotgunned a man named Wilson Anderson to death for allegedly killing Longleys nephew and fled north to the Indian Territory. Longley returned to Texas and killed at least two more men over the next year. By February 1876 he was in Delta County, sharecropping for the Rev. William R. Lay, when he was arrested in a dispute over a local girl. He burned himself out of the Delta County jail and killed the Reverend Lay while Lay was milking a cow. In June 1877 Longley was captured in Louisiana and returned to Texas to stand trial for Andersons murder. On October 11, 1878, before a crowd of thousands, Longley was executed in Giddings by Lee County sheriff James Madison Brown. Rumors persisted that Longleys hanging had been a hoax and that he had gone to South America, and a claim was made in 1988 that he had later reappeared and died in Louisiana.

AUSTIN Commissioner of Education Michael Williams this week reminded school districts across the state of provisions in a new law relating to the adoption of major curriculum initiatives, including curriculum management systems such as the recently-renamed CSCOPE. Senate Bill 1474 (SB 1474) which was passed by the 83rd Texas Legislature, signed by the governor and became effective June 14 - requires school districts to follow a new process prior to the adoption of any major curriculum initiative. A new process established under SB 1474 seeks to balance transparency to local stakeholders with local control over how districts teach the required Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, said Commissioner Williams. Before a district adopts a major curriculum initiative, it must gather input and opinion from both teachers and district employees. In addition, SB 1474 (authored by Sen. Robert Duncan - Lubbock) requires a local school board to have a meeting to discuss the proposed initia-

Man faces multiple charges

on a charge of deadly conduct. On August 9, Escutia was reported to have displayed and threatened subjects with a handgun during a disturbance in the 100 block of Misty Lane. Judge Matt Kiely issued a warrant for Escutias arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. On Aug. 15, Escutia was reported to have sexually assaulted a child at a location in Caldwell County. Judge Blomerth issued a warrant for his arrest on that charge. To report illegal activity in your neighborhood, con-

tive and allow feedback from community members. This process provides school districts the opportunity to obtain feedback while deciding if any proposed curriculum meets the needs of their district. Commissioner Williams also noted that the State Board of Education (SBOE) has reconvened its ad hoc committee to resume its review of CSCOPE social studies lesson plans. The committees charge is to provide a resource for districts evaluating individual lesson plans and making decisions in accordance with SB 1474. The review process is expected to be completed sometime this fall. As a part of its review, the ad hoc review committee will hold a September public hearing in Austin to take testimony from the public. Details of that hearing will be announced

soon. The TEA regional administrators who developed CSCOPE, working as the Texas Curriculum Management Program Cooperative, announced to school districts on Aug. 26 the system was being re-named. In a letter to school districts, Dr. Jerry Maze, chair of the cooperative, said that as of Aug. 30 CSCOPE will be re-titled the TEKS Resource System. We believe this new name will better reflect our mission, our service, and will help all parties involved move forward in a positive way, Mazes letter notes. TEKS Resource System is just that, a resource. It will still have all of the components and options you have enjoyed in the past and any material that you have developed within the old site will automatically be transferred to the new site

... However, as we have stated previously there will be no sample lessons provided within the system. The CSCOPE electronic curriculum management system came under intense scrutiny in the last year, first from individual teachers and parents and then from Texas legislators during the last session, after several lesson plans were found which contained what many perceived as anti-American, anti-Christian and other messages. The system was also heavily criticized for requiring teachers to teach specific lessons in specific ways at specific times, which many veteran classroom teachers insisted limited their effectiveness in communicating with students.

New Businesses, Fresh Look for Downtown Gonzales

The Cannon

Thursday, September 5, 2013

The surging economy in Gonzales is setting the stage for some major expansion and renovation of the downtown area. Last week, the GISD Board of Trustees voted to proceed with buying the old H-E-B building on St. Joseph St. to renovate as a campus for the districts early-childhood programs, and several businesses are opening up downtown locations or renovating their facades. BZs Country Petals (left) at 616 St. Lawrence was scheduled to open this week at 626 St. Lawrence. Hours will be 8 a.m.-5:30 pm. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday. (Photos by Mark Lube)

The old warehouse at 418 St. Andrew St. is being restored and will soon have its new tenant Brothers Grajales Gourmet Coffee. Owner Carlos A. Hernandez Grajales said the facility will be the home for two gourmet brands: Brothers Grajales Coffee and Come and Take It Coffee. Grajales expects the new warehouse operation will be ready for business by the first weekend in October. (Photos by Dave Mundy)

While several downtown-area buildings are seeing new tenants and new businesses, other property owners are making improvements to make their facilities more inviting to prospective tenants. Cary Blake, owner of the J.P. Randle Building at 509 St. Joseph Street is currently making renovations to the building. I am removing personal belongings, items that are not useful, cleaning up and removing the old awning, she said. (Photos by Mark Lube)

Bastrop coming in hungry for first victory


Bastrop at Gonzales
Friday, 7:30 p.m. Apache Stadium
Johnson last year and this year we get the opportunity to see what kind of football player he is, Lock said about Ramirez. He ran the ball with authority and made a lot of shifty moves. He really worked hard in the offseason on increasing his speed and hes done it. Hes worked his way to where he is now. Hes also an outstanding student and a very intelligent young man. Were very fortunate that hes an Apache because he makes a lot of plays for us. Unfortunately Gonzales was bitten by the injury bug last week when standout senior lineman Tyler Filla went down with a knee injury. Lock said he will

Thursday, September 5, 2013

The Cannon

Things couldnt have gone much better for Gonzales last Friday. The Apaches rolled into Victoria and rolled out of town with a convincing 40-point win over the East Titans. Head coach Ricky Lock saw his offense bully their way to 606 rushing yards including six scoring runs of 15 yards or more. Happy with the win but not content with the execution, Lock said his charges still have a ways to go. Weve still got a lot of work to do, he said. Weve got to clean some things up and get in better condition. We missed a lot of blocks

on the perimeter and defensively we missed a lot of tackles, two of which went for long touchdowns. I do think however that we did get better as a team. It was a learning experience for the young men who hadnt played at that level before and it was a positive experience because of the way the game turned out. What the game turned out to be was a coming out party for Alyas Ramirez, who rushed for a gamehigh 256 yards on 19 carries and four touchdowns. The sophomore stud was also an important part of the Apache defense that (for the most part)stymied the Titans all night with the exception. He backed up Cecil

be evaluated by doctors in San Antonio this week and is definitely out for Fridays contest. Were hoping we can get Tyler back at some point, said Lock. Whenever theres an injury, you expect the worse and hope for the best. Sophomore Clayton Wilkerson will likely be replacing Filla in the lineup, which means he would be making his first ever varsity start. Bastrop will come to town Friday night still reeling from their seasonopening 35-6 loss to Cedar Park Vista Ridge. The Bears had five turnovers in the game and twice failed to score from inside the 10yard line.

The game was a lot closer than the score indicates, said Lock. They played pretty well on defense, they just had some bad luck happen to them. Defense seems to be the strong point for the Bears this year where are led by quick DL Masta Hicks, LB Luis Carmona and DB Romello Wilson, who had an interception last week. Hicks is very, very athletic and Carmona is very active, Lock said. Wilson really stands out when you watch their secondary on film. Lock said in order to avoid the track meet last weeks first half turned into, the Apaches are going to have to be more sound on APACHES, Page B2

#6 Shiner to tangle with old nemesis #12 Hallettsville


Area Previews

The Gonzales Junior White Apaches, led from left by Cade Davis (25), Lane Mills (64), Jaydyn Lookabill (5) and Colby Richter (90), tore through their sign and stormed the field at the beginning of their seasonopening game at Yorktown.

Its a new year in the Shiner-Hallettsville rivalry. The teams meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Brahmas Memorial Stadium. Both opened with explosive wins last week The Comanches ran all over Industrial in a 34-0 win and Hallettsville took care of business against the Ganado Indians, winning 43-6. Both squads had good years in 2012, but it is now 2013. Hallettsville is ranked and they are predicted to be good like last year, Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. But it is a new year. Shiner is a tough team, Hallettsville head coach Tommy Psencik said. They have solid quarterback,

running backs and an experienced offensive line. Hallettsville runs a balanced spread attack and Shiner has to be ready for anything If we shut down the run, they will go to the pass, Cerny said. We need to mix things up defensively. We cannot let them have the big play. Hallettsville will need to earn every point. It will have to be a bend-butdont-break thing. Hallettsville has several playmakers including Trenton McGee, Dalton Herrington, Jimario Grounds, Tim Sheppard, Kaylon Massey, Kaden Hardt, Brent Motal and Nate Kowalik. Shiners offense had a good performance against Industrial. We need to control their PREVIEWS, Page B2

Lady Apaches top Eastside Memorial in home opener


GONZALES Any win for a team is going to help its confidence the slightest bit for the next match. The Gonzales Lady Apaches swept the Austin Eastside Memorial Lady Panthers, 25-8, 25-3 and 25-5, Tuesday evening at the GHS Special Events Center. Lady Apache head coach Sarah Moreno was pleased with everything the Lady Apaches did. Its a win in the book, she said. It built our confidence. The girls did great things by sticking to our system. The defense did great getting to the places they needed to be and being very disciplined. Moreno said Gretchen Singleton had five kills to

lead the Lady Apaches (612) with Molly Barnick and Alex Finch chipping in four kills each. In sets two and three, Danielle Flowers was a force to be reckoned with from the serving spot in the back. Danielle got lots and lots of aces, Moreno said. She just does not miss them. I called for different ones and she made every single one of them. In the first set, the Lady Panthers managed to grab the early hand, taking a 3-2 lead and getting an ace from Anna Habimana. A kill from Barnick tied the game at 3-3 and Gonzales then scored nine straight points, getting a block from Kendall Fougerat and an ace from Madison Musick. Eastside Memorial was able to close down to 13-5 and Gonzales went to vic-

tory with 12-3 run, getting an ace from Cassidy La Fleur and a kill from Finch. Gonzales got a 5-2 lead in the second game, getting a couple of aces from Musick. Later, ahead 7-3, the Lady Apaches ripped off 18 straight points with around half a dozen or so aces from Flowers and kills from both Fougerat and Singleton. In the third set, the serving of Flowers powered the Lady Apaches to a 6-1 advantage. Gonzales later went up 15-3 on plays from Singleton and Fougerat as well as kills from Danyelle Glass and Bailey Connell. The Lady Apaches then ended the match with a 10-0 run.

defense. Weve got to make sure that we are in the right places, he said. They have more team speed than we do. Weve got a couple of guys that can run, theyve got a bunch of guys that can run. Assistant coach Todd Patmon was promoted last May after former head coach Gerald Perry was reassigned after five seasons. Perry last guided the Bears to the playoffs in 2010. Under Patmon, Bastrop has abandoned the triple option look from a year ago for a traditional one back set based on zone reads and spreading out the defense to create natural running lanes. The Bears are big up front on the offensive line where Jordan Davis (6-3, 300) and Jarvis Brawley (6-1, 255) are returning starters. RB Carrington Waites (1151) was the teams leading rusher last week, but the Bears will also try innovative ways to get the ball into the hands of dangerous receiver Izaiyah Washington. The key to holding down Bastrops offense is not al-

lowing new QB Cameron Barron to settle into a groove. Last week, he completed 9 of his 18 passes for 79 yards and also had a two-yard touchdown run. Last year they had a very fast kid at quarterback but this kid has a better motor

and runs the ball more effectively, said Lock. Hes also pretty decent at throwing the ball. The game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. in Apache Stadium.

defensive line with our offensive line and run the veer effectively, Cerny said. Shiner will count on Jacob Stafford, Marcus Coleman and Tyler Patek to produce a lot of rushing yards. Against Shiners veer, our defensive players will need to do their specific job and not someone elses, Psencik said. We will have to fly to the football. On offense, we will need to keep possession of the ball by being very balanced. Last years game was an offensive show by Hallettsville as they won 49-28. It was Shiners only regularseason loss.

Its a big game and there will be a big crowd, Psencik said. Sacred Heart at Flatonia Flatonia host Hallettsville Sacred Heart in a typical Bulldogs-Indians rivalry game for Flatonias home opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Bulldog Field. This will be a tight and tough game, Flatonia head coach Chris Freytag said. Sacred Heart is big, physical and they are strong. I think it will be a typical Flatonia-Sacred Heart game, Indians head coach Pat Henke said. Freytag said the Bulldogs must do better in all phases of the game against the Indians. Our offensive line did

not block well and we have made a couple of adjustments, he said. We need to control the football which is something we struggled to do against Nixon (last week). Henke is expecting a tough battle from the Dogs. Flatonia is physical up front, they have size and have some good skilled players, he said. It will be a challenge for our defense. We gave up lots of yards against Yorktown last week. Sacred Heart will just need to their offensive line to play well to get the offense going. We must protect the PREVIEWS, Page B12

Gonzales opens with rout at Victoria East

VICTORIA The weather was a classic balmy Summer night in South Texas, but it was the fireworks on the field that made it feel like the Fourth of July. Gonzales played its season opener Friday night and ended up with a 6020 rout at Victoria East in a game that featured nine scoring plays of 15 yards or better. The Apaches had their stellar offensive line and stable of talented backs on display, shredding the Titan defense for 606 yards on the ground. We established the line of scrimmage, ran the ball hard and took care of the football, said Gonzales head coach Ricky Lock. We had nearly 400 yards rushing at halftime so our guys really got after it up front. There are always things you can do better, but for our first game I thought we were right on track. Earlier in the week, Lock expressed some concerns about the teams quarterback situation where neither junior Brant Philippus nor junior Grayson Meredith were able to distinguish themselves. Philippus drew the start and his first varsity pass attempt was a wobbly floater that landed five yards short of a wide open Darrance James. That would prove to be the only mistake he would make on the night as he finished with 66 yards rushing including a gutsy 10-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Hes starting to get his feet under him, said Lock. Every rep he gets at the varsity level is going to be good for him. It was good to have a comfortable lead and be able to establish some things. The Apaches also got some things from their two freshmen. Wade Miller garnered a sack in his first start at defensive end and Aaron Hunt was impressive at running back, racking up 87 yards and a touchdown in his varsity debut. Anybody would want to run behind our offensive line, Lock said. Hes got to learn not to dance at this level and just hit the hole because when he does hes dangerous. He ran well to-

night. In addition to the work put in by the all-star front five of Zach Perez-Clack, J.T. Miller, Damien Airhart, Jordan Johnson and Tyler Filla, the Apaches also received great blocking on the edge from Joe Ryan Carrizales and out of the backfield from Jose Contreras, Trent Schauer, Travis Schauer, and Dylan Cantu. Gonzales (1-0) scored early in its first possession. After a short gain by Ramirez brought up a fourth and one from the Apache 39, he darted through a hole made by Johnson and J.T. Miller and raced 61 yards for the score. The two-point conversion failed and Gonzales led 6-0 with 9:46 left. (From left) Jordan Johnson, Wade Miller and J.T.

Mustangs overcome own Defensive play provides mistakes, beat Flatonia early spark for Comanches

SHINER When a turnover and bad snap on a punt put Shiner in danger of conceding some early and easy scores, the defense stepped up and bailed the team out. The Comanches (1-0) ran through, around and over the Industrial Cobras, and the defense forced a couple of turnovers as Shiner got 2013 started the right way with a 34-0 win Friday night at Comanche Stadium. Those are things we kind of expected to happen in early season ball games, Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. We had some players out there (in a varsity game) for the first time. We settled down and the big thing is our defense really stepped up and got the ball back to us. The Comanches fumbled away the football on the second play of the games opening drive.

Industrial running back Trenton Thedford picked up 13 yards to the Comanche 24. A few plays later, Shiner recovered a fumble at their 22. On a thirdand-6 play, quarterback Tyler Patek gained 7 yards on a keeper to the 33 and then simply pushed forward on a surge and raced through the defense for a 67-yard touchdown score, giving Shiner a 7-0 lead. Industrial went on a time-consuming drive of 75 yards in nearly seven minutes that turned out to be fruitless. A 19-yard run in the latter stages by fullback Evan Gregg set up Industrial at the 5. Gregg took a toss down to the 3. Thedford took a handoff and got to the 1. Quarterback Jay Rubio was stopped for no gain and Industrial went for on fourth down and did not make it as the Shiner defense stuck together and stuffed him. Shiner drove to just a little past their 36 and stalled

despite two offside calls on the Cobras. A bad snap on the punt led to the Cobras get another great scoring chance as they had the ball at the Shiner 11. Two plays went nowhere and on the third one, Rubio was picked off by Ernie Egan. I thought our defense stepping up was the turning point in the game, Cerny said. That bad snap could have been a disaster and given Industrial some momentum but once again defense stepped up. Shiner capped the quick, two-play 75-yard drive as Marcus Coleman took a toss, went outside and was off to the races for a 76yard run to give the Comanches a 14-0 lead with 5:54 to play in the second quarter. Cerny said the offense executed very well overall. We faced a lot of third and long, and all of sudden, we got the big play SHINER, Page B4


NIXON The mommies in the Nixon stands were starting to gather up small children and shield their eyes so they didnt have to see the bad things happening when the Mustangs ducked into the phone booth and pulled off their Clark Kent glasses. Admittedly, they didnt step out wearing big S on their chests, nor were they able to leap tall buildings at a single bound. But they did a fair job of stopping a fast-moving train. Man, how weird was that? exclaimed NixonSmiley coach Carlton McKinney after his squad dodged a couple of firsthalf bullets, then scored twice in a 20-second span of the third period en route to a 28-14 come-from-behind victory over the Flatonia Bulldogs in Fridays football season opener. Down 6-0 after Flatonia had scored on a 1-yard run by Mitchel Mica on the

games opening drive, the Mustang defense frustrated the Bulldogs in the red zone twice in the second period, leading to a 7-6 halftime lead which changed the complexion of the game. After a three-and-out deep in their own territory early in the second, NixonSmiley lined up to punt. Tristan Newmans kick, however, was shanked and thrown right back by a stiff southerly breeze, giving the Bulldogs possession of the ball at the Nixon-Smiley 16-yard line. The punt officially measured negativethree yards. A well-read stop of a Guz Venegas sweep by Mikel Scarborough dropped the Bulldogs back eight yards, and two plays later, Flatonia quarterback Will Bruns was hammered by NixonSmileys Riley Samford as he delivered a pass and the Mustangs Garrett Earlywine snatched the ball to kill the threat. The Nixon-Smiley offense, however, turned the ball back over two plays lat-

er, with the Bulldogs Brandon Perez coming up with the recovery at the Mustang 14. A pair of behind-theline stops by Justin Ramos and an illegal-shift penalty later, the Bulldogs lined up for a 39-yard field goal attempt by Jose Manzano only to see Newman sweep in and smother the kick. We had some kids step up and play tonight, McKinney said. They responded when we needed them. The offense made some mistakes, but they responded. The Mustangs followed the blocked kick with a 71yard, 10-play drive capped by a 1-yard sneak from Nick Pea. Eduardo Tovers PAT kick made it a 7-0 game at halftime. The punting nightmare visited Nixon-Smiley to open the second half, however, and the Bulldogs didnt waste the chance a second time. Penalties for an illegal chop block and a personal foul dropped the Mustangs from their own MUSTANGS, Page B4

Continued from page B3

25 to their own 4, and when another Newman punt came riding the breeze back toward the Mustang goal line, N-S drew a penalty for trying to bat the ball -- setting the Bulldogs up at the Nixon-Smiley 4-yard line. A holding call set Flatonia back, but Bruns responded with a perfect lob into the corner of the end zone to Venegas for an 18-yard pass. A two-point conversion run by Mica put Flatonia on top 14-7. The ball started bouncing the other way midway through the third quarter, however. On the first play following a Mustang punt, Ramos pounced on a Flatonia fumble to set the Ponies up at the Bulldogs 30-yard line. A pass interference call halved the distance,

and five plays later Tom Palacio punched it into the end zone to tie the game with 2:01 remaining in the third period. Tovars ensuing kickoff into the wind wasnt intended to be an onside kick, but the ball traveled only 15 yards before bouncing to the ground, where it was alertly picked up by the Mustangs Jordan Martinez and returned to the Bulldogs 45. Two plays later, Jared Van Auken burst up the middle and reached the secondary untouched, racing 34 yards to score and put NixonSmiley back on top. Neither team was able to sustain a drive after that, and after being pinned deep in their own territory late in the contest the Bulldogs risked a fourth-and-15 call from their own 3-yard line. Bruns pass again got held up in the wind and NixonSmileys Samuel Moore

turned it into an 18-yard pick-six to seal the deal for the Mustangs. We played terrible, Flatonia head coach Chris Freytag said. Not to take anything away from Nixon, but we deserved better coaching than this. We tried out the no-huddle offense, it worked great in practice but tonight ... there were just too many mistakes. Weve got a lot of improving to do, he said. For McKinney and his Mustangs, the win was a huge morale boost after the frustrations of the last couple of seasons. The big part is the success we had tonight, the enthusiasm that will generate, he said. We made a lot of mistakes. We have to turn that into teaching, and let the kids know that if we clean up those mistakes we can get a lot better.

From coaches reports

PETTUS The St. Paul Cardinals had nearly 400 yards of offense but could not get past the Pettus Eagles on Friday. Pettus scored first, getting an Anthony Mendoza run in the opening quarter. St. Paul came right back with an 84-yard pass from Austin Barton to Colton Machart. The two-point conversion run failed and left St. Paul down 7-6. Mendoza then caught a 51-yard pass from Matt Gonzales and a 13-6 lead at the end of the quarter. Late in the second, T.J. Bell had a big 40-yard scoring run to put St. Paul ahead 14-13 but Pettus got a score with less than a minute to go with a 31-yard run by John Constante. Gonzales scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth to seal the game for Pettus.

Simcik had given the Cardinals a 7-0 lead in the first quarter with a fouryard run. The Bulldogs tied the game with a TreVontae Hights 15-yard run. In the third box, Hights scored on an eight-yard run and later on, Jared Garza caught a 43-yard pass from Chase Hermes. Hights got the two-point run to give Yoakum a 21-7 lead. Detriyon Carter brought Columbus to within 2113 on his 54-yard scoring scamper.

Eagles a 31-10 halftime lead. Each team scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Luling got a 10yard and eight-yard scoring runs by Brendon Cubit, Randolph got a 33-yard run by Miguel Rivera and a four-yard scamper by Hosley.

UNIVERSAL CITY The Luling Eagles hit the ground running to start the 2013 season with a 4723 win over Universal City Randolph. Luling got two Trayden Staton-to-Taylen Moore touchdown passes of 88 and 26 yards in the first quarter and Brendon Cubit scored on a 17-yard run, also in the first frame. Randolph returned the missed two-point play to trail 19-2 after one quarter. In the second box, Shaft Cubit scored on a 16-yard run for a 25-2 Luling lead. The Ro-Hawks got a touchdown from Christian Hosley on an eight-yard run. Shaft Cubit had a shorter three-yard run to give the

GANADO The Hallettsville Brahmas put on offensive show to open the season with a 43-6 win over Ganado on Friday. The Brahmas opened the scoring in the first quarter as Trenton McGee hauled in a 76-yard touchdown pass from Nate Kowalik and Tim Sheppard ran for the two-point conversion. Hallettsville added a second touchdown in the second box as Kaden Hardt scored on a three-yard run for a 15-0 Brahmas lead. The Brahmas put the ball in the end zone four times in the third quarter Dalton Herrington ran a kickoff back 89 yards, caught a 65-yard pass and scored on a 24-yard run. Sheppard capped the Hallettsville scoring with a 15-yard run. The Indians got on the board in the fourth quarter ROUNDUP, Page B5

to give us a third down, he said. Industrial punted on their next drive and Shiner had 3:21 and 78 yards to score. They got down to the 18 of Industrial, helped by a 14-yard run by Coleman, a facemask call on the same play and a 22yard run by Jacob Stafford. With just a few seconds left, Shiner missed a 35-yard field goal by Rigo Baray to end the half. To open the third box, the Shiner defense held Gregg to a 3-yard run and then sacked Rubio twice.

The Cobras had a 17-yard punt into the wind to give Shiner the ball at the 37. Stafford took a handoff, seemed to disappear into a pile, stumbled, kept his balance and finished off a 37yard touchdown run to give Shiner a 21-0 lead with 9:31 to go in the third. The teams exchanged a series of punts until the Comanches had a short field to run after a 22-yard punt by Industrial. At the Cobra 30, Stafford had a run of 5 yards and then an 8-yard rush to the 17. Patek repeated his feat from earlier and scored on a 17-yard sneak. Industrial

blocked the point after for a 27-0 Shiner advantage. The Cobras had their next drive start at their 27. Rubio had a couple of good passes 13 yards to Gregg to the 42, 9 yards to Cade Peterek and a pass to Gregg for 15, eventually bringing the Cobras to the Shiner 30. Tyler Conrad hauled in a fourth-down catch for 5 yards but was 4 yards shy of the marker. The Comanches then put the icing on the cake with a 14-play, 75-yard drive in just under six minutes, capping the drive with a 4-yard run by Coleman and a 34-0 advantage.

when Cameron Williams took the ball on a reverse during the ensuing kick return and ran 77 yards to whittle the Gonzales lead down to 19-6. Early in the second quarter, Philippus pushed the Apaches out to the near midfield on a dive. On the next play, Ramirez came through a gaping hole in the middle and broke up the left sideline for a 39yard touchdown. Undaunted, the Titans got another quick strike after returning the ball out to their 25. Ortega dropped to pass, made a man miss in the backfield, reversed his direction and raced 75 yards for a score. James looked as if he was going to score when he returned the ensuing kickoff from the Apache 19, but the speedy lost the handle on the football and it rolled

out of bounds at the Gonzales 45. Seven plays later, Ramirez powered in from five yards out to cap the drive. On the next possession, the elusive Ortega showed that he still had more to pull from his bag of his tricks. Facing third and nine, he rolled to his left, went back to his right and was in the end zone 64 yards later. Kelsey Ferrys extra point kick would be the last points of the game for Victoria East with 4:32 left to play in the first half. Gonzales would run out most of the clock by using a 10-play, 64-yard drive that culminated in Philippus touchdown run. The second half was all Apaches, all the time. Ramirez ended their first possession with a two-yard plunge and later in the quarter, Tellez broke off a strong run for a 15-yard score.

On the Titans next possession, Airhart put a bonejarring hit on Ortega, who lost the ball and it was recovered by J.T. Miller at the Gonzales 43. Aaron Hunt gained nine yards on first down and then did something special on the next carry. He managed to squirt through a small crease and blazed his way into the end zone as the entire Apache sideline erupted in amazement. Contreras converted his sixth extra point kick in as many tries to end the games scoring with 1:58 left in the third quarter. The only sour note of the night for Gonzales came when Filla failed to rise to his feet after a play early in the fourth quarter. The senior standout had to be helped to his feet and taken off the field via golf cart. No immediate word was given regarding the nature of his injury.

Junior White blanks Yorktown in opener

The Gonzales Junior White traveled to Yorktown to take on the Wildcats in the season opener for both teams. The Apaches jumped out early and never looked back en route to a 28-0 win. Gonzales scored on each of their first four possessions, triggering the mercy rule in the first half. The Apaches first drive featured a 35-yard run by Breck Eleby and was capped by a 30-yard scoring run from Cade Davis. The two-point pass attempt failed. On their next possession, Jaydyn Lookabill got loose for a big run and the drive ended with a 35-yard dash by Davis, who caught the two-point conversion pass from Lookabill to make the score 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Apache defense continued to stuff Yorktown led up front by Camron Cook, who had two sacks, and in the secondary by Davis, who had two interceptions. Eleby garnered more points when he ripped off a zig-zagging touchdown of 40 yards. Lookabill and Davis hooked up again for the two-point conversion. The scoring was capped when Lookabill and Davis ended the next drive with a five-yard touchdown pass. While recognizing the big day from his skill players, Apache head coach Jay Pyssen also gave credit to the job done by his starting offensive line which includes Colby Richter, Lantz Pyssen, Donovan Iglehart, Lane Mills, Gage Cardenas, Kevin Crockett and Kamren Cavit. The kids as a team did a great job, he said. Theyve been pounding on each other for weeks now and they really enjoyed getting a chance to play their first game. It was good for them to get a win under their belt. In the other Junior Division game, Yoakum beat Gonzales Black, 6-0, in double overtime at the Yoakum Rodeo Arena. In Senior Division action, Gonzales Black blanked Goliad, 18-0, and Victoria Warrior Black downed Cuero, 20-12. In the Sophomore Division openers, Gonzales Black shut out Cuero, 13-0; Gonzales White fell to Goliad, 12-6; and Hallettsville rolled over Calhoun White, 35-0.

with a seven-yard pass from Ray Salazar to Kameron Smith. Kowalik completed 11of-15 for 232 yards and two touchdowns with Herrington hauling five catches for 104 yards. Brent Motal led Hallettsville on the ground with 93 yards on 11 carries.

HALLETTSVILLE The Sacred Heart Indians and Yorktown fought to a 22-22 tie until the fourth quarter when Yorktowns Steven Perez scored on a one-yard run right at the end of the game for the difference. Sacred Hearts Jonathan Vanek returned the opening kickoff 79 yards for a touchdown and Yorktown later came back with a Logan Roman three-yard run

Yorktown 28, Sacred Heart 22

and Perezs two-point run for an 8-6 lead. The Indians retook the lead before the end of the frame as Dylan Jahn scored from 27 yards out and Trent Janak hauled in two-point pass from Scott Stoner. Next score for Yorktown was a Jonathan Weischwell five-yard run with Roman getting the two-point conversion. Sacred Heart went ahead 22-16 on the two-yard plunge from Kyle Pettus and Jahn caught a twopoint pass from Stoner. The Wildcats knotted the game before halftime on the 42-yard run by Caleb Schendel, but the twopoint conversion failed.

WHARTON Down 23-9 to start the fourth quarter, the Cuero Gobblers scored two touchdowns but missed an extra

point, allowing Wharton to escape with a 23-22 win. The Gobblers got a 14yard run from DAnthony Hopkins, who finished as the games leading rusher with 142 yards on 20 carries. Tristan Barefield caught a four-yard touchdown pass but the gametying extra point was no good. The Tigers opened the scoring in the first box with a 27-yard field goal and got two touchdowns directly from turnovers. Taylor Skinner returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown and Wharton later recovered a fumble in the end zone. Cuero later got a safety in the first quarter. The Gobblers cut Whartons lead to 16-9 in the second frame on the 13-yard run by Zach Hopkins. The Tigers went ahead by two scores in the third quarter with a 15-yard run by Toney Rogers.

football and be very physical up front, Henke said. He said it will be interesting to see how players from both teams respond to losing their respective first games of the season. Sacred Hearts offense will likely ride the shoulders of tailback Jonathan Vanek and fullback Dylan Jahn as quarterback Scott Stoner will put up a couple of passes to keep Flatonias defense honest. Flatonias offense will need production from its main running threats including Marcus Mica, Aaron Manzano, Gus Venegas, Will Bruns and Mitchell Mica. Victoria West at Cuero The Gobblers return home to face the Victoria West Warriors on Friday. We are looking forward

to playing at home for the first time, Cuero head coach Travis Reeve said. Victoria West will be a formidable opponent for us. Cuero dropped a close one to Wharton, 23-22, last week in the first game of the season. Our offense needs to take care of the football better and have more consistent execution. The Warriors were on the good side of a one-point game as they held off the Lockhart Lions, 35-34. Victoria West runs a spread offense and is extremely balanced. Quarterback Anthony Navarro passed for 235 yards and three touchdowns, and also ran for 91 yards on 19 carries and one touchdown. Running back Zevaughn Shelton had five carries for 22 yards and Qualian Bry-

ant had 13 yards on eight carries and one touchdown. Leading the receivers was Jacob Armstrong, who had five catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. We are going to have to fly to the football and make sure we tackle in the open field, Reeve said. The Warrior defense lines up in multiple fronts and is aggressive, and is led by linebacker Nathan Hermes, who led the team with 71 tackles a year ago. Three Rivers at NixonSmiley The Mustangs look to build on their seasonopening win against Flatonia by hosting Three Rivers for a 7:30 p.m. game on Friday at Mustang Stadium. Nixon head coach Carlton McKinney said the Stangs need to improve on what they did last week to have a good shot on going 2-0 on the year. He described Three Rivers as a well-coached and hardnosed team that is similar to Nixon. They are a Wing-T offense like we run, McKinney said. Their line does a great job and the running backs run hard. They will drive to eat a lot of clock on their drives. Primary ball carriers will be running backs Jesse Perez and Paul Almendarez. Our defense will tackle hard and slow them down, McKinney said. Three Rivers key defensive players are linebacker Weston Huff, linebacker Adam Romero and defensive back Dillon Guajardo. We will need to control the football with our running game, McKinney said. Three Rivers also started things with a win as they

blanked Skidmore-Tynan 30-0. Sugarland Fort Bend Christian at Shiner St. Paul Shiner St. Paul made some improvements in its opening loss to Pettus but made too many mistakes. The Cardinals will look to rebound as they host Fort Bend Christian in Homecoming at 7:30 p.m. at Comanche Stadium. Our mistakes against Pettus came at critical times, St. Paul head coach Jake Wachsmuth said. The Eagles opened their season by beating Acadiana Homeschool (Lafeyette, La.), 62-12. Fort Bend Christian runs a spread offense, using mostly one-back and shotgun formations. Last year, they were more of a running team, he said. It looks like this year they will run to set up the pass. The offense will be led by quarterback Jake Bruns, wide outs Cody Beeman, Kevin Imperio and Tyler Ciacarra, along with linemen Ty Stubbs, John Slotsted and Connor Brand. Our defense did not play bad against Pettus; we just gave up a couple of big plays, Wachsmuth said. We need to play with that same intensity against Fort Bend and prevent the big play. On defense, Fort Bend is led by aggressive linebacker Jackson Beasley. St. Paul did well on offense against Pettus with 400 yards but was unable to score on several of its trips inside the red zone. We need to score when we get close to the Fort Bend end zone and not Dalton Couch of Gonzales runs the course at the Gonhave any turnovers, Wazales Relays cross country meet, held August 24 in Inchsmuth said. dependence Park.

It was noted American author Ambrose Bierce (sometimes known as Bitter Bierce for his acerbic wit) who made the following sage observation: It is by the goodness of God that we have in our country three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and the prudence never to practice either. Did you ever wonder why pirates often had pierced ears? It seems that the belief at the time was that wearing an earring improved eyesight.

You might be surprised to learn that there is a world record for the tallest recorded hairdo. Even more surprising is the fact that the recordholders beehive measured a whopping 6 feet, 6 inches tall. Food trucks are rapidly gaining popularity all over the country, both at fairs and at stand-alone food-truck bazaars. You might be surprised to learn that the origin of the food truck goes all the way back to 1872. At that time, in Providence, R.I., all the restaurants closed at 8 every night,

leaving factory workers who got off late without a place to eat. At the time, a man named Walter Scott (obviously not Sir Walter Scott) was working as a pushcart peddler, selling odds and ends out of a glorified wheelbarrow. Like a true American entrepreneur, Scott saw a need and moved to fill it. He put a small stove in a horse-drawn wagon and began roaming the streets late at night, selling sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs and coffee. His success spurred imitators, and soon the city was teeming with the afterhours lunchwagons. *** Thought for the Day: I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth. -- Umberto Eco (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
