NIXON An old coun-

try favorite comes back to


Nixon this weekend as the
Featherfest resumes afer
an absence of more than a
decade.
When I retired from the
service a few years ago and
moved out here, I asked
people What happened to
Featherfest?, Nixon City
Manager Manuel Zepeda
said. I told the City Coun-
cil when they appointed
me, that was one of the frst
things I wanted to do, was
to get Featherfest going
again.
Te local festival was last
held in 1998, but resumes
with a bang this year. Re-
gional country favorite
Kyle Parks will be headlin-
ing Saturdays musical en-
tertainment lineup.
A carnival will be staged
on the grounds at the Nix-
on Livestock Show facil-
ity on Highway 87 all day
Friday, and Saturday is set
for a full schedule of events
and entertainment.
Te carnival kicks of
Saturday at 10 a.m., and
all food, drink, and craf
booths will be open along
with free game booths and
various displays.
Registration for the vol-
Expansion of the Dreyer
Airport and the process of
re-licensing the citys hy-
droelectric power genera-
tion station earned prelimi-
nary approval of Gonzales
City Council during Tues-
days meeting.
Council gave approval for
City Manager Allen Barnes
to enter into a grant agree-
ment with the Texas De-
partment of Transportation
for funding for hangar ex-
pansion at Dreyer Airport.
Te grant through TxDOT
Aviation would require the
city to furnish 10 percent of
the funding for construc-
tion of new hangers at the
municipal airport, as well as
a helipad.
Te helipad would en-
able Air Life could land
without having to have
the fre department on the
scene, Barnes noted.
He said the TxDOT grant
would fund some $823,500.
Te citys portion of the
project would be $91,500,
and Barnes noted that
$100,000 had been set aside
in the budget approved by
Council on Tuesday.
Te Council also gave
the go-ahead to Barnes to
Gonzales City Council on Tues-
day raised the citys overall revenue
for the coming year to purchase
some badly-needed equipment,
but still sliced the tax rate by more
than 10 percent.
Following the second of two
public hearings on the proposed
2014-15 city budget, Council opted
to approve the city tax rate at the
rollback level of $0.1628 per $100
valuation. Te move prompts a
fnal public hearing to be held at
6 p.m. Sept. 9 prior to formally
adopting the rate.
Te Council had the option of
setting the tax rate at the calculated
efective rate of $0.1508, but opted
for the rollback rate to specifcally
ensure funding for the purchase
of a new pumper-tanker fre truck
for the citys fre department and
a front end loader and maintainer
for the street department.
Te rollback rate still represents
a two-cent tax decrease for city
property owners. Last years rate
was $0.1845.
Te tax rates were based on an
estimated increase in total proper-
ty values in the city limits of nearly
$98 million over last year.
Councilman Gary Schroeders

ence between the efective and

Todays edition marks the start of
a new era for Te Gonzales Cannon
as the paper moves into the White
House.
Te Cannon staf will be distrib-
uting this weeks paper from our
new ofce at 901 St. Joseph St. in
Gonzales.
Were really excited about this
move, because for us its a much
more visible location, Publisher
Dave Mundy said. Weve enjoyed
our frst fve years on St. Paul St.,
but people have ofen comp-lained
that we were hard to fnd. Tis is a
much better location for us.
Te new ofces are right across
St. Joseph St. from the Post Ofce
and City Hall, and adjacent to Los
Auto Sales.
Its the third change of venue for
Te Cannon, which debuted fve
years ago out of a one-room ofce at
the Alcalde Hotel. Te staf moved
frst to an apartment at 616 St. Paul,
then into a redesigned ofce space
next door at 614 St. Paul, where it
has been located for nearly three
years.
Our landlord, Myrna McLeroy,
is also a member of our Board of
Directors and has been the iron
backbone of this company since we
started, and we cant begin to ex-
press our appreciation for leasing
this space to us all this time, Mun-
dy said. But now its time for us to
grow a little more.
Mundy said the staf will hold an
Open House at the new ofce in the
near future to show of for the com-
munity and our business partners.

contract with Schneider Engineering to per-
form a cost-beneft analysis on the re-licens-
ing of the citys hydroelectric power genera-
tion station on the San Marcos River dam.
Barnes said the federal license for the sta-
tion expires in 2020 and the licensing process
takes about fve years. Te city could auto-
matically begin the license renewal process,
but he suggested the analysis be performed
to determine whether the power generated
makes it worth spending $200,000 or more
to renew the license.
In response to a question from Council-
man Tommy Schurig, staf said the station
generates about 2.5 million kilowatts a year,
on average.
Council opted to delay for 30 days making
appointments to various boards and com-
missions in the city to allow members the
opportunity to review applicants for the va-
cancies. Te city last year began appointing
new members to the boards to coincide with
the Oct. 1 start of the budget year.
Council members did, however, vote to
appoint Tim Markham to replace Susan
Berger on the citys newly-created Charter
Review Commission.
Council also approved an ordinance en-
abling property owners to contract with
plumbers for sewer and water taps. Barnes
said the city had rescinded that policy a
couple of years ago, but in light of the cur-
rent construction pace in the city it makes
sense. city personnel will still be required to
be present during the tapping process.
In other action Tuesday, Council:
Approved street closures for the upcom-
ing Dennis Richter Memorial Scholarship
Cookof this weekend in the 800 block of St.
Paul St. and street closures and permission
for beer sales for the Come and Take It Cel-
ebration Oct. 4-6;
Approved fve Small Business Incen-
tive Grant awards of up to $15,000 each by
the Gonzales Economic Development Corp.
Tree of the grants will help fund the installa-
tion of fre sprinkler systems for the Hotel Al-
calde, the Templin Saloon and LaBella Tavola
Italian Grill & Pizza. Also gaining approval
was a grant to Whites Service Co. for build-
ing renovations and a grant to Laurel Ridge
Pottery and Antiques for creation of a wine
patio and cellar;
Approved the Gonzales Tourism Com-
mittees recommendation to contract with
Rockin S Marketing and Design, and ap-
proved the committees recommendation to
spend $5,000 in promotion for Come and
Take It;
Designated Te Gonzales Cannon as the
citys ofcial newspaper of record for 2014-
15;
Approved the Planning & Zoning Com-
missions action approving the re-plat of the
1835 Village subdivision;
Approved an update to the citys drought
contingency plan and water conservation
plan.
rollback rates would be used to fund the
purchase of the new equipment.
Te funds would be used to lease-pur-
chase a custom-built pumper-tanker for
the fre department and a front-end load-
er/maintainer for the street department to
replace equipment which is more than 40
years old.
Weve got a city to run, and we need the
equipment to do it, Mayor Bobby Logan
commented.
Council also approved the citys budget
of $24.5 million for the coming fscal year,
which begins Oct. 1.
Included in the budget was a fxed raise
for the citys department supervisors.
Council had voted Aug. 19 to revisit the
annual review and extension of the con-
tract of City Manager Allen Barnes in six
months.

Once again the Republican Establish-
ment has shown its ignorance and fear
of the immigration issue when Rep. Paul
Ryan (R-WI) recently suggested that Re-
publican candidates in this years midterm
elections should run on granting a path-
way to citizenship for all of the countrys
illegal. Tese GOP leaders continue to
fear emotional arguments rather stand on
logical and legal principles. Tey fail to
understand that if you ever want to stop
illegal immigration, you must not reward
it in any form or fashion.
Te 1986 Immigration Reform and
Control Act (IRCA) was designed with a
one-time only amnesty for illegal aliens.
However, almost immediately, the law be-
gan to be undermined and skirted by in-
terests that rely on cheap labor, and those
who want to play the Latino race card for
political gain.
Te U.S.-Mexico border has been open
and uncontrolled since 1848. Te Treaty
of Guadalupe Hidalgo which ended the
Mexican War allowed for families to be
reunifed across the border and for
relative free movement between the two
countries.
Tis freedom of entry and exit has given
rise to a culture and mind-set that leads
many to believe that they a right of free
entry in the U.S. without any require-
ments or responsibilities. People crossed
the border, legally and illegally, with ease
and few problems until recent times.
However, the world has changed dra-
matically since 1848 and since 1986, and
so has illegal immigration. Te two most
obvious changes are the 9/11 terrorist at-
tacks, and the huge numbers of illegal
aliens that have entered the U.S. Whereas
illegal immigration was a mostly south-
west regional issue, it is now a national
issue.
In the meantime, liberals use illegal
immigrants for their political purposes.
Democrats make no excuses that they
want to court Latino voters by support-
ing illegal immigrants, and this scares
some Republicans. Liberals and Demo-
crats make emotional arguments in public
about the plight of illegal aliens in their
home lands, in their journey to America,
and in their sufering in the shadows in
our country.
However, the fact is that we live in a
very dangerous world and we must con-
trol our borders. We must know who en-
ters our nation and for what purposes. We
also cannot fnancially support the worlds
poor nor accept its children to raise them.
We simply cannot aford it.
Tus the questions of our time are how
does America stop illegal immigration,
and what do we do with the millions of
illegal aliens that are already in the U.S?
For me, the answer is simple and to the
point. To stop illegal immigration, we
must punish all violators, including mi-
nors, with no chance or hope of ever gain-
ing citizenship or even permanent resi-
dence in the U.S. As long as you reward
illegal immigration directly with amnesty,
or indirectly with an eventual pathway to
citizenship, illegal immigration will con-
tinue.
Rather than capitulate to political pres-
sure and emotion, Republican leaders
should not reward illegal immigration
with amnesty or a pathway to citizenship.
It should be punished with no chance or
hope of ever gaining citizenship or even
permanent residence in the U.S. Tat
would be a good start to stopping illegal
immigration because more needs to be
done.

Default Obama strategy
for ISIS: doing nothing
Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew
more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less,
say more; Love more, and all good things
will be yours.
Swedish proverb
Every so ofen Ill fall of into a self-cen-
tered chasm.
And fnd myself in a thunking mode.
Tunking is akin to thinking. Tinking is a
tad more cerebral than thunking.
In my book, Te Gospel According to
Jim, thinkers put a lot of truck in what
they think. Its their custom to start a sen-
tence with a I think ... or ask Dont you
think ...?
Whereas we seldom use the word
whereas, we thunkers are more prone to
just thunk about things. Mostly of an in-
consequential nature. Since we appreciate
the fner things in life. Such as stomping
on the brakes when sighting a Cold Beer
Sold Here sign, old-timey country music,
cornbread from scratch, family get-togeth-
ers, the smell of fresh cut hay, and a good
dog for conversation.
Whereas, theres that whereas word
cropping up again, thinkers consider
themselves well versed in the art of the
Louvre, wine tasting, aged cheese, German
cuckoo clocks, and a liberal bent when it
comes to reelecting a president that drinks
out of a sippy cup and frets more with a
golf scorecard than national security.
Now Im no medical practitioner but I
will diagnose those of that caliber as being
infected with a high cerebral fecal count.
Now it doesnt take any Einstein to fgure
out that theory.
And it was old Albert who once theo-
rized that two things are infnite: the uni-
verse and human stupidity, and Im not
sure about the universe.
I digressed.
Back to my morning of shallow thunk-
ing. While sipping on orange marmalade,
I thunked:
About the the state of society today. How
we have regressed to a prehistoric stage and
age. Decorum is non-existent. Respect out
of the question. And there is no answer.
Role models are long gone. Your alleged
artists (actors, singers, etc.) have degener-
ated into what I consider contemporary
white trash.
Parents pay big bucks for their ofspring
to attend concerts (Miley and Justin and
Rihanna and Taylor). At times the so-
called artists are adorned with tasteless tat-
toos and clad in clothes of rags and thats
considered chic. Wealth seems to make the
homeless appear to be trendsetters.
Permanent tramp stamps are the new
pseudo cheek moles of old.
Reality shows and You Tube create
15-minute celebrities of fame the public
willingly accepts.
Gee, consider the headlines of the mo-
ment. Libs embracing immigrant rights.
And that foreign country, California, ban-
ning water pistols and toy guns. Bacon is
considered pornographic if allowed to be
served in public view.
ISIS, Putin, Gaza, Ferguson, Ice Bucket
Challenge, Jihadists.
Not exactly biblical terms that conjure
up comfort. Are they?
I think Ill thunk out some new lyrics to
an old Bobby Darin song, Tings.
Well call it Tunkin.
Tunkin bout the things we need to do
Tunks, like gasoline at a buck and a
quarter
Tunks, securing our southern border
Tunkin bout the things we need to do
Tunks, electing a president thatll sa-
lute the fag
Tunks, a demure frst lady that doesnt
nag ... about school lunches.
Tunkin bout the things we need to do
Forget about it. Im no songsmith.
Not really a thunker, either. But I do
think that some people are not too savvy.
Even if spelled out in CAPITAL LETTERS
when it comes to whats transpiring before
us today.
Back in the 19 and 60s Barry McGuire
had a hit song called Eve of Destruction.
A line in it went the Eastern world, it
is exploding, violence faring and bullets
loading
Explosions, violence, bullets. Now a dai-
ly occurrence. Over and over, again, my
friend, were on the eve of destruction.
Inching closer and closer to an edge of
destruction. A dead end to end all dead
ends down the road.
Before it happens I would like to hear
your President Obama tell his lib con-
stituents at the start of a press conference:
Dont follow in my footsteps, I tend to
walk into walls.
ISIS is a force for evil that poses an
imminent security threat to the United
States, but please, let us get back to you on
whether we are determined to defeat it.
Tat is the posture of the Obama
administration toward the terror group
that proudly demonstrated its malevolence
by beheading American journalist James
Foley in a propaganda video.
For the administration, ISIS isnt merely
a dire enemy, it is a dilemma. President
Barack Obama must respond to a group
that -- with its resources, apocalyptic vision
and Western recruits -- is clearly a threat to
the homeland, at the same time he wants
nothing to do with Iraq in particular or any
new military intervention in general.
Te default Obama strategy, then, will
be to do the minimum necessary not to be
accused of allowing ISIS to run riot. If he
must launch a few airstrikes to arrest ISISs
sweep toward Kurdistan, he will. If he must
make a statement about the beheading of
James Foley before hitting the links on his
vacation, he will.
But he is loath to commit himself. In his
Foley statement, the president sought to
sound stalwart without saying anything in
particular. He brought down the hammer
of History with a capital H on ISIS. He
said, People like this ultimately fail. He
pronounced a global consensus around the
proposition that a group like ISIS has no
place in the 21st century.
All reasonable, forward-looking people
agree that genocide has no place in the
21st century, either. Yet the prospective
slaughter of Yazidis trapped on Mount
Sinjar afer feeing ISIS wasnt stopped by
the inevitable progress of international
norms, but (to the administrations credit)
by American bombs in conjunction with
Kurdish fghters on the ground.
If the administration is too forthright
about ISIS, it closes of escape hatches for
the president, who is an anti-Iraq War
purist.
He opposed the surge under George W.
Bush that defeated al-Qaida in Iraq, the
precursor to ISIS. He had no interest in
keeping U.S. troops in Iraq that might have
helped preserve those gains. When the
Syrian civil war began to rage, he refused
to robustly support the relatively moderate
opposition, thus ceding the ground to what
became ISIS.
Iraq is now doubly reminiscent of
the Vietnam War. First, the collapse of
American political will to maintain forces
in Iraq, even afer we had defeated the
insurgency, recalled the end of Vietnam.
Now, the administrations de facto policy
of graduated escalation -- progressing
from a strictly limited mission to protect
the Yazidis and American personnel
potentially threatened in Kurdistan
to something more extensive, yet still
amorphous -- recalls the beginning of the
Vietnam War.
Te administration must fear where
the logic of a war against ISIS leads. If it is
prosecuted in earnest, it means a bombing
campaign against the group on both
sides of the Syria-Iraq border, and quite
possibly American boots on the ground.
In other words, the kind of escalation
that would have brought howls of outrage
from Democrats in the Bush years, and
especially from then-Sen. Obama.
He must decide how badly he wants to
win his Iraq War.

organized. She needs some
more main dish recipes.
Others are fne too, but that
is the category she is short
on. Our deadline is Sept.
1st and we are still trying
to meet that as much as we
can because we want this
recipe book out by the frst
week in November so it can
be bought for Christmas
presents. So email to ckath-
elean@ymail.com. Call her

Te Annual fundraiser
for the Belmont Volunteer
Fire Department will be

Now let me tell you all
folks. I cannot take much
more of this with all of my
beloved friends and rela-
tives passing away. I know
I am being selfsh when I
say this. Judy Zella and I
worked together for many
a year at that banking insti-
tution that was frst located
across from Kotzebue Drug
Store and it had just been
named First National Bank.
Ten we made the great big
decision to go from posting
machines to that computer
up in Austin. Ten afer
we all got over that hurdle
we moved down the street
to where the Wells Fargo
bank is now. You learn a
lot about each other when
you work in a close knit
bunch of people like we
did. I truly loved working
with Judy. We had to be a
versatile bunch. We never
knew whether we were
going to be answering the
switch board, be counting
money in the back, or be-
ing a teller. And to her fam-
ily I know they will really
miss her.
And then Mrs. Bobbie
Pagel had to slip away too.
Mrs. Mabel Richter, I
hope that you are out of
the hospital. I have a hard
time keeping up with you.
I thought that you were
supposed to slow down
a little when you reached
this point in your life.
However, I think that you
have speeded up. Well,
no matter, wherever you
are, I hope that you feel
better. It is not wise to let
Ben loose in the town by
himself.
We thank those who gave
donations to the school
supplies. We got enough
in monetary donations this
year to go get a gif certif-
cate from Wal Mart to give
to school nurse/counselor
to then take it and buy
emergency supplies like
underwear, a shirt, a pair of
shoes, etc. or maybe some
other item that a child re-
ally needs at that moment.
I think that Skooter
and Butter Bean had bet-
ter watch it. If they dont
quit packing Wills stuf
of he might wring both
of their necks. I just found
Skooter with one of those
high priced insulated tiny
yellow screw drivers. Ten
they had gotten into his
headphones because he
had not put them up. But
best of all was that Butter
Bean put his head inside
his size twelve tennis shoe
and Skooter picked up
the outside and away they
went. Where is my camera
when I need it?
Have a good week, watch
out for school kids, and
God Bless.

Rain gives us a little relief; Belmont VFD fundraiser coming up
Tis is an edited tran-
scription of an interview
with Colorado County
Ground Water Conser-
vation District Mgr. Jim
Brasher heard on Te
News from the Camphouse
on KULM 98.3 FM.
Brune: As promised,
the next few weeks will be
spent disseminating issues
such as water, illegal im-
migration, the escalating
drug and crime problem,
and societys laisse faire at-
titude towards the crime
and drug problem.
Today, were talking
about water. Without water
life does not exist and Tex-
as population would not be
growing by 1,000 new peo-
ple daily. Tat also leads to
the logic that without such
population growth, maybe,
our problems would be
diminished. Nevertheless,
Texas is growing in popula-
tion, the economy is better
than other parts of the U.S.,
and solving Texas prob-
lems is in the hands of the
voters. As always it is my
belief that blaming politi-
cians, bureaucrats, or state
agencies is like blaming the
neighbors dog for poop-
ing on your lawn. Its up
to those afected to solve
problems dont blame the
dog.
Jim, please explain one
aspect of what were facing
with water, groundwater,
and our part of the Gulf
Coast Aquifer.
Brasher: Were looking
at problems in the east part
of our county, the aquifer,
and what is happening in
Wharton County. Tere
are folks that have lost their
domestic and livestock
wells. It is a direct result
of an increase in irrigation
wells being drilled because
farmers arent getting their
water from the river. Be-
tween Eagle Lake and Lis-
sie weve seen 30 new irri-
gation wells drilled. Tose
additional straws in the
aquifer are taking a toll.
Te aquifer has been drop-
ping from year to year, but
also, it drops seasonally.
Now, it is dropping more.
Te farmers are looking
for alternate sources since
they cant get their water
from the LCRA.
Brune: What is the status
on the law about the High-
land Lakes? Was the trigger
level raised?
Brasher: Tey are hav-
ing Board meetings as we
speak. Tere is certainly
pressure from the people
in the Highland Lakes area
to hang on to that water.
Tey want to see the level
raised before they release
water to irrigation districts
and those of us downriver.
Brune: If there is no rain
there is no water for any-
one. And the rain we had
this spring did little to re-
plenish the lakes.
Brasher: Tat is correct.
Tey had a stretch with
good rain but its been
dry for so long that the
ground soaked up most of
the rain. Te lakes did not
capture much of the rain.
Brune: Is it not true, that
when the aquifer is in good
shape the aquifer feeds
the river once it fows onto
the Gulf Coast Plains. Te
Brazos and Colorado Riv-
ers both look signifcantly
stronger closer to the
coast. And when the aqui-
fer feeds freshwater into
the river it helps to beneft
the bays and estuaries.
So, the lack of freshwa-
ter has a big negative efect
on the Texas Gulf Coast
economy. When it doesnt
rain enough to feed fresh-
water to the coast, and
when our aquifer is getting
drawn down and cant pro-
vide freshwater into the
river it is logical to sur-
mise that the lack of fresh-
water is having a negative
impact on the bays, estu-
aries, and economy of the
Gulf Coast.
Brasher: Tat is abso-
lutely correct. We depend
on rain to feed the aqui-
fer, rivers, and lakes. We
always depended on rain
to provide agriculture
water from the lakes. We
depended on rain for the
Gulf Coast. Te lack of
rain is hurting us, putting
more straws in the aquifer
is pulling down the aqui-
fer, and ultimately there is
less freshwater getting to
the Gulf Coast.
In the more local sense
you see people losing their
domestic and livestock
water wells.
Brune: What is coming
down the pike for water
conservation legislation?
Obviously we cant have a
city like Austin killing our
Gulf Coast economy, agri-
culture, and the environ-
ment. It would seem that
there would be some type
of conservation mandated.
We already have seen San
Antonio implement vari-
ous types of conservation
and become one of the
lowest users of water per
capita in the state.
Brasher: Austin has an
entity looking afer their
concerns. Tey do use at
water re-use. Tey are also
looking at emergency mea-
sures and are cognizant of
the situation. Whether con-
servation can meet their
growing needs is question-
able. Te Austin popula-
tion continues to grow and
the problem will continue
to grow. Under the grow-
ing trend it is questionable
if there will ever be water
available for agriculture in
the future.
Likewise, we bring into
question whether the of
channel reservoir idea will
provide a complete answer.
Much of that theory re-
quires the reservoirs to get
enough river runof to pro-
vide for the farmers. To me
that is also questionable.
Te of channel reservoirs
should help but it has to
rain.
Brune: What is the over-
all outlook for the Gulf
Coast Aquifer?
Brasher: Weve been
meeting with folks from
the Wharton County Coast
Bend Groundwater Con-
servation District and the
problem for them is more
severe than us. But a per-
son can outline where the
heart of the problem lies.
It is in the lakeside irri-
gation district. Te farmers
that got their water from
the Colorado River are try-
ing to supplant that with
groundwater. It is a local
problem but the nature of
the problem is far reaching.
Now we really need to
take a look at how far that
aquifer is going to drop.
It has been getting worse
over the last few years.
We have a monitor well
nearby. Two years ago it
dropped 20 feet during the
pumping period. Last year
it dropped 30 feet. Tis
year it dropped 20 feet
in one month and 40 feet
overall. Were coming into
an unprecedented situa-
tion and there are more
wells to be drilled.

LA GRANGE A trash burn which got
out of control is being blamed for the death
of a 61-year-old man in Fayette County.
Fayette County Sherif Keith Korenek re-
ported that deputies responded to a grass
fre on Golden Valley Road Aug. 30.
A resident burning trash on his property
sufered life-threatening burns and was
airlifed to a San Antonio hospital, where
the resident later succumbed to his injuries
sustained in the fre. Ofcials were with-
olding the name of the individual pending
notifcation of kin at press time.
Sgt. Charles Jobb and Deputy Ben Wil-
son responded to the fre and the investi-
gation into the cause of the fre resulted
from trash being burned that got out of

guished the fre and Fayette County EMS

SUSPENSION CHECK
Tis week, the Texas
Railroad Commission
(RRC) reported state-wide
crude oil production of
2.16-million b/d in June,
2014. Tats less than a 1%
increase from the previous
month, but 29% from the
same time in 2013.
Most of the states oil
production in June came
from the Eagle Ford
Shale and West Texas
Permian Basin. Te U.S.
Energy Information
Administration (EIA)
predicts the Eagle Ford
Shale will produce
1.51-million b/d crude
oil in Sept., 2014. Tats
an increase of ~31,000b/d
over Augusts expected
production (1.48-million
b/d).
Five of the top ten oil
producing counties were
in the Eagle Ford, and four
of those led state-wide
production by county for
the month:
Karnes 204,500 b/d
La Salle 155,283 b/d
De Witt 140,323 b/d
Gonzales 110,598 b/d
Drilling state-wide
continues to grow. Te
RRC issued 2,419 state-
wide drilling permits in
July, which was an 11%
increase from the previous
month. Approximately
91% of permits issued
in June were for new oil
and gas wells. Te highest
number of permits issued
by RRC district was in
the San Antonio area (377
permits).
Across the state, natural
gas production was also
on the rise in June. Texas
produced 603 million Mcf
of gas during the month,
which represents a 9%
increase from the same
time last year.
Te Texas average rig
count as of August 15, was
899, representing about 49
percent of all active land
rigs in the United States.
In the last 12 months, total
Texas reported production
was 802 million barrels of
oil and 7.9 trillion cubic
feet of natural gas.
Te Railroad
Commission of Texas
estimated fnal production
for June 2014 is 76,953,161
barrels of crude oil and
523,906,040 Mcf (thousand
cubic feet) of gas well gas.
Te Commission
derives fnal production
numbers by multiplying
the preliminary June
2014 production totals of
64,710,024 barrels of crude
oil and 457,559,860 Mcf of
gas well gas by a production
adjustment factor of 1.1892
for crude oil and 1.1450
for gas well gas. (Tese
production totals do not
include casinghead gas or
condensate.)
\
Texas natural gas
storage reported to the
Commission for July 2014
was 264,335,927 Mcf
compared to 386,569,206
Mcf in July 2013. Te
August 2014 gas storage
estimate is 266,423,509
Mcf.
Te Commissions Oil
and Gas Division set initial
September 2014 natural gas
production allowables for
prorated felds in the state
to meet market demand of
8,472,823 Mcf (thousand
cubic feet). In setting the
initial September 2014
allowables, the Commission
used historical production
fgures from previous
months, producers
demand forecasts for
the coming month, and
adjusted the fgures based
on well capability. Tese
initial allowables will
be adjusted afer actual
production for September
2014 is reported.
Published news reports
this week also indicated the
surge in oil production has
helped increase household
incomes in South Texas by
about $1,200, according to
an industry-funded report.

Te Gonzales Book Club
met on Tursday, Aug. 21,
to discuss Orphan Train by
Christina Baker Kline. Te
novel has two main charac-
ters, Molly a rebel who is a
ward of the court in 2011.
She has a nose ring, a skunk
streak in her hair, and sev-
eral ear piercings and lives
in a foster home. Te novel
moves between the 1920s,
30s & 40s and 2011. Or-
phan Train follows Niamh,
a girl from Ireland to New
York with her family. Tey
are immigrants who came to
New York during the 1929
potato famine in Ireland.
She ends up in an orphan-
age and on the orphan train
at the age of nine as it travels
through the farmland states
such as Illinois, Minnesota,
and Iowa. At each stop the
children line up by size and
are examined. Te babies
are chosen frst. Te boys are
mostly wanted for labor on
the farms, the girls for help-
ers around the house. Nia-
mh is not chosen at the frst
stop. But she is chosen at the
next stop and is supposed
to be sent to school, but
isnt. Her name is changed
to Dorothy and she is put
to work in a sewing shop.
When the Stock Market
fails, she is sent back to the
placement people who place
her in a rundown, dilapi-
dated home where they are
looking for someone to care
for an expectant mothers
young children. Fortunately,
she is sent to school. When
the father tries to rape her
she runs away to the school,
which is four miles away, on
a freezing winter night. She
stays outside on the doorstep
until morning. Te teachers
boarding house owner lets
her stay there for a week,
and then she is placed with
a couple who need help in
their store. Her name is
changed again to Vivian and
she is allowed to live there to
adulthood.
Molly has ffy hours of
service work to do. She does
it by cleaning the attic for
an old woman who lives in
a fourteen room mansion.
Te old woman, Vivian, has
a hard time throwing things
away and Molly mainly la-
bels and organizes and re-
views Vivians life with her.
She learns a lot about herself
and we get a surprising end-
ing.
Part of our discussion was
the diferences and similari-
ties in Vivians and Mollys
lives although they have very
diferent personalities. We
discussed how each change
of Niamhs name was sig-
nifcant to a diferent part of
her life. We also discussed
the impact Molly and Vivian
have on each others lives.
When Vivian says, I believe
in ghosts. She means she
believes in the actions that
dead relatives and friends
have had on her life. We dis-
cussed this idea. And with-
out giving the ending away,
we had a lengthy and lively
discussion on the authors
choice of Vivians decision.
Tis book is a must read.
Te characters are real. Te
history is something we
need to know and realize
what orphanages did in the
1920s and 30s. Te author
does an excellent job of tying
in the foster home of today
and the placement of or-
phans in the 1930s, though
Niamh and Molly are totally
diferent characters.
Our next meeting will be
on Turs. Sept. 18, from 10-
11am at Lifords Books and
Fine Art. We will discuss Gi-
ant by Edna Ferber, a Texas
classic covering three gen-
erations of cattle barons and
oil tycoons. Anyone inter-
ested in a literary discussion
is welcome. Please come.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, take the high road
when you fnd yourself in the
midst of a disagreement with
a friend. It may be tempting
to stick to your guns, but the
disagreement is nothing too
signifcant.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21
Much is going on, Taurus,
and you have trouble zeroing
in on a focal point. Unless you
make a list of all you want to
accomplish, you may get lost
in the shufe.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
You sometimes change your
moods on a whim, Gemini.
But lately you have been more
steadfast in your convictions.
Tis behavior will continue for
some time.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22
Dont make any rash moves
in the next few days, Cancer.
For whatever reason your
common sense meter is a lit-
tle of. You may want to run
ideas past a trusted friend for
a while.
LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, unless you try you will
never be able to tell if some-
thing is within your capabili-
ties. Do not be afraid to fail.
Its better than putting in no
efort at all.

Virgo, youre wearing your
heart on your sleeve this week.
Dont worry, as your willing-
ness to share your emotions
will endear you to others.

Tere are only so many
hours in the day, Libra. You

your activities accordingly.
You likely will not be able to
squeeze everything in.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, if you want to get

by all means give it your best
shot. If its something foreign
to you, let others take the
reigns until youre more com-
fortable.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/
Dec 21
A new perspective is all you
need to feel better this week,

Te friends you thought

to be the real deal, Capricorn.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18
It is okay to have strong

walk away from pointless situ-
ations.
PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

For the Gonzales
Apaches, Thanksgi vi ng
usually comes in October.
Tat is the usual time
for the annual district
showdown with rival
Cuero Gobblers.
But this year, because
Cuero is a 4A Division
II while the Apaches are
Division I, the game had
to be scheduled as a non-
district game.
In the frst week of
September.
Te Apaches (0-1) host
Cuero (1-0) at 7:30 p.m.
tomorrow at Apache
Stadium.
Te earlier occurrence
of the game probably will
not afect the motivation of
players on both teams, or
the intensity on the part of
the community and fans of
each team.
Over the course of all
time, Cuero is beating
Gonzales just by two
games, GHS head coach
Kodi Crane said before
facing of against Cuero for
the frst time as head coach.
Tat is a big rivalry.
Cuero won its season
opener with a 33-20 win
over Wharton last week.
Gonzales was bested by
former district opponent
Giddings, 52-35 during
which Gonzales had issues
with execution in the
second half.
We want to play better
and improve in this game,
Crane said. As part of
the process that we have
stressed, we want to see a
better football team at the
end of Friday (tomorrow
) night than we had last
week. All we want to do is
keep improving.
Afer a lackluster second
half against Giddings, the
Apaches are ready to work
on executing well through
four whole quarters or
longer if necessary.
We also are working to
improve techniques and
little things, Crane said.
When we watched the
Giddings game flm, those
were the biggest things we
saw we had to improve.
We have to take an
individual drill then take
that into a group setting
and then into a team setting
before taking it into Friday
night.
On ofense, Cuero is
extremely multiple and
runs a lot of formations.
Tey will line up in
every formation under the
sun, Crane said. Tey are
unbalanced, spread, two
back, power, etc.
Teir top back is the
future UTSA player,
DAnthony Hopkins. He
had a monstrous efort
against Wharton last week,
with 245 yards on 29 carries
and four touchdowns,
including a scoring play of
87 yards. He caught two
passes for 17 yards and
even threw a couple of
passes of his own.
He is a good player and
has a great ofensive line to
run behind, Crane said.
Tres Miles had seven
receptions for 87 yards and
a touchdown to lead the
Gobbler receivers.
Tres is targeted quite
a bit, Crane said. Te
quarterback Jared Venor is
accurate when he throws
and directs the ofense
well.
Giddings was able to
make several big plays
against the Apaches last
week and Gonzales has no
wishes to see Cuero do the
same thing.
Crane said every player
on defense just has to
do their job and not be
Superman in order to
slow down Hopkins and
Co.
Take care of your
responsibilities and good
things will happen, he
said.
Cuero will line up in the
4-3, keeping seven players
in the box and will use a
two-shell secondary.
Te Gobblers main
weapon on defense is
linebacker Zech Hopkins,
younger brother of
DAnthony Hopkins. End
AJ Franco will also be a
force to reckon with.
Teir defense is sound,
explosive and can run to
the ball, Crane said. In
their frst game, they did
a great job of corralling a
very fast Wharton team.
Gonzales will need to not
have plays that lose yards
and avoid penalties.
Both of those put us
behind the chains last week
and its hard to have an

Turkey season come early: Apaches
open home schedule against Cuero
Special teams did well in frst
outing, shooting for improvement
John Bashaw
Chad Kinney brings
collegiate coaching
success to Gonzales
baseball program
Afer spending the last
fve years coaching colle-
giate baseball, new Gon-
zales head baseball coach
Chad Kinney felt it was
time to make a change.
He had helped the Le-
Tourneau University base-
ball team set a record for
most wins in a season; they
won the American South-
west Conference (ASC)
title, went to the regional
tournament in Oregon and
were nationally ranked.
Afer those accomplish-
ments, I felt like it was time
to try something else, he
said. I wanted to be a head
high school coach.
Kinney said he looked
into and got phone inter-
views for positions on the
East Coast.
However, he looked into
the Gonzales position and
was intrigued.
It had to be a good ft
for me, Kinney said. I met
with Coach (Kodi) Crane
(athletic director) and
more members of the ad-
ministration.
I ended up taking the

Te Gonzales special-
teams unit had their frst
chance at live situations in
last weeks opener at Gid-
dings.
According to head coach
Kodi Crane, the team did
well in those situations.
Kicker John Bashaw
made fve-of-fve extra
points in the game and the
Apaches had several fake
punt plays to get a surprise
fourth-down conversion or
two.
Gonzales averaged over
32 yards a kick on four
punts.
I felt we executed well
on special teams, extra
point/feld goal holder
Brant Philippus said. We
surprised Giddings a little
because we did not show
those things during the
scrimmage.
Giddings really did not
know what to do. On the
fake punts, we got frst
downs twice.
Philippus said he was
not too worried about Gid-
dings blocking an extra-
point attempt despite the
fact the Bufaloes did a
couple times last year.
Bashaw took a simple ap-
proach to his work on extra
points.

ally think too much about

to feel like I had missed a
good opportunity to be a
head coach.
Kinney said he likes the
direction Crane is taking
the Gonzales athletic de-
partment to being competi-
tive and very successful.
I want to make our base-
ball team one of the best
teams in the program, he
said.
Te experience and suc-
cess Kinney has had playing
and coaching will help the
Tribe baseball team.
I bring a championship
mentality and that is what
I will preach to our kids,
he said. Te past is over;
we are looking forward to
this years season. We want
to qualify for the playofs,
make a deep run and play
great baseball in the pro-
cess.
But before the Apaches
get the bats swinging, Kin-
ney will help Crane with
football by serving as a wide
receivers coach for the new
Air Raid attack Crane has
helped bring to Gonzales.
It is exciting to be
around football. I run
around and have lots of en-
ergy. It has been a great ex-
perience, he said.
Kinney will teach Credit
Recovery and PE at GHS.
He said in his short time
in Gonzales, he has noticed
that whenever he is out and
about, he is recognized. He
also has seen the high ex-
pectations of the football
team and other sports that
come from the community
members.
People expect big things
and we expect them too,
Kinney said.
He is single and owns a
dog.
Kinney is a 2004 graduate
of Wills Point (Texas) High
School in East Texas. He
competed on the football,
baseball and track teams.
Following graduation,
Kinney attended Angelo
State University in San An-
gelo where he took part in
baseball.
Afer year at San Angelo
State, Kinney transferred to
Lon Morris College in Jack-
sonville, attending from
2005 to 2007 and competed
on the baseball team.
He then moved on to East
Texas Baptist in 2007 and
graduated with a degree in
Education and Behavioral
Science and another season
of collegiate baseball.
In the fall of 2007, Kin-
ney went home to Wills
Point where her served as
assistant football and base-
ball coach and served as a
Special Education teacher.
From 2008-2009, he was
Enory-Rains High School
as assistant football and
taught PE.
At that point is when
Kinney moved up to coach
collegiate baseball as as-
sistant. He started at Aus-
tin College in Sherman in
2009 and in 2012 made
the change to LeTourneau
University to help bring a
waterfall of success to the
Yellow Jacket program.

it, he said. I knew there was a chance in
the back of my mind that Giddings could
block the kick but I really did not pay too
much attention to those thoughts; just
kicked the ball as fast as I could.
Gonzales did not attempt to kick too
many extra points last season, Philippus
admitted.
Getting fve extra points was really good
for us, said deep snapper Jonnathan Banda
Bashaw is doing pretty good, Philippus
said.
Te Apaches get to face rival Cuero in
a non-district game and will see how well
Cuero prepped on special teams to be
ready for anything special on special team
Gonzales will throw at them.
Banda said Gonzales will be able to make
some more plays on special teams because
of the work in practice.
We want to continue to get frst downs
and touchdowns, he said. We are doing
well and are working on new things.
Against Cuero, we want to make all the
extra points and execute well, Philippus
said.
Bashaw said he wants to kick better and
make his point afers and any feld-goal at-
tempts.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Apaches
looking to good performance vs Cuero
efective ofense for
second-and-17. You have
to stay ahead of the chains
and make positive yards,
Crane said.
With Cuero tending to
pack the box, the Apaches
can make them pay for that
tendency with an efective
quick-passing game.
Once we get them a
little loose, we have to
attack by running the ball
efectively, he said. We
have to be able to execute
our run-block schemes.
Year in and year out,
regardless of each teams
situations, the rivalry
will always mean a lot to
everyone involved.
Tese are two towns
located close to one
another and have been
playing for a long time,
Crane said. Te players
on both teams know each
other well because of being
in the same district forever.
Gonzales last win in the
series came in 2011 when
the Apaches blanked Cuero
28-0. Cuero won the 2012
game 41-14 and held of the
Apaches 28-20 last season.

against Cuero game still intense despite
being a non-district contest
Scenes from the Giddings
game
NIXON--Make no mistake about
it, as far as Carlton McKinney is con-
cerned, the spread is still something
you smear on a sandwich, not an of-
fense.
However, he might be starting to
consider using that word pass to
apply to more than just the mustard.
Well you know we lost so many
of our big linemen from last year for
our running game, but were fortu-
nate that we have some skill kids that
can catch the ball, the Nixon-Smiley
Mustangs head coach said afer his
club opened the 2014 season Friday
night with a convincing 28-7 over a
solid Woodsboro club.
Nixon-Smiley passed only around
three times a game a year ago, but it
was the pass which opened the game
up for the Mustangs Friday. Quarter-
back Nick Pena and halfack Tristan
Newman connected four times for
11 yards, including a 45-yard scoring
strike on a third-and-26
To be sure, the running game is
still the Mustangs bread and butter:
Nixon-Smiley pounded out 294 rush-
ing yards, with senior fullback Justin
Ramos accounting for 188 of those
while scoring on three short runs.
We had several kids play really
well tonight, they were very emo-
tional, McKinney said. It was not a
pretty win by any means, but it feels
good.
Te Mustangs opened with a big
pass play afer the defense jelled fol-
lowing a couple of big gains by the
Eagles to force a punt into the end
zone. On the frst Mustang play from
scrimmage, Pena laid out a looping
bomb and Newman stretched out to
haul in a 35-yard completion.
Nixon-Smiley converted on a key
fourth-and-three play to the Woods-
boro 23 before Ramos plowed up the
middle and broke at least four tackles
on a 17-yard gain. A facemasking call
moved the ball three yards closer, and
the fullback plowed into the end zone
with the frst score from three yards
out with 6:18 remaining in the open-
ing period.
Woodsboro charged back to claim
the lead, however. Quarterback Trent
Moses proved elusive on the option
play and had three sizeable runs on
the Eagles next drive to set up a 12-
yard scoring pass to John Cisneros.
Ramos had another run breaking
multiple tackles on the Mustangs
next trip downfeld, carrying defend-
ers part of the way on an apparent
49-yard scoring run which got short-
ened by a block in the back penalty.
Te Mustangs eventually ran out of
downs at the 19.
Te Eagles were victimized mid-
way through the second quarter
when they lost a down following an
injury to running back Andy Villareal
on a second-down play. Afer Villar-
eal had been taken from the feld, the
game referee overruled the other of-
fcials and caleld if fourth down, and
the Eagles were forced to punt.
Nixon-Smiley capitalized with an
82-yard march, splicing a 19-yard
swing pass from Pena to Newman be-
tween runs of 21 and 29 yards from
Ramos to get the ball to the Woods-
GIDDINGS In foot-
ball, it is quite simple: if
you execute well and for
the whole game, things will
go well.
If you do not execute well
or consistently, then things
will eventually go south on
you.
Te Gonzales Apaches
executed okay in the frst
quarter and better in the
second quarter in their
2014 opener at Giddings
Bufalo Stadium on Friday.
Gonzales trailed 7-0 afer
one quarter but outscored
the Bufaloes 35-17 in the
second frame for a halfime
lead.
For whatever reason, the
Apaches did not execute
well in the second half as
Giddings scored on all but
a couple of possessions to
erase a 35-24 halfime def-
cit to win 52-35.
Whenever the momen-
tum lef us, we just could
not get it back, Gonzales
head coach Kodi Crane
said afer his frst regular-
season game as Apache
coach. I have never seen a
football execute better than
what we did in the second
quarter. But we did not sus-
tain that in the second half
for whatever reason. In the
third and fourth quarter,
we did not execute well in
any phase of the game.
Gonzales struggled to
contain big plays as Gid-
dings had three scoring
plays come from their half
of the feld and two other
touchdown plays of more
than 30 yards.
We have to be able to
stop big plays, he said.
Crane said despite the
loss, Gonzales still made
progress in their process to
reach their full potential.
In the second quarter, I
guarantee you we became
a better football team, he
said. We have to be able to
carry that over the course
of four quarters.
Friday night was basi-
cally the frst time the Tribe
had seen any serious live
special-teams play.
Kicker John Bashaw was
5-for-5 on extra points,
Gonzales averaged 32 yards
on their punts and got reps
on the kickof team.
Giddings lit up the late
August evening sky with
some home-run bombs
as quarterback Kyle Jones
went 7-for-10 for 238
yards, one interception and
three touchdowns.
He found running back
Raylon Hickey open in the
middle for 63 yards on Gid-
dings frst ofensive play
and had strikes of 64 and
58 yards to Jason James and
Brooks Namken, respec-
tively.
Tis was the frst time
we had to play against space
and we did not handle it
well, Crane said. Two of
them were trick plays and
the receivers got behind us
but we have to be able to
defend that.
Gonzales quarterback
Brant Philippus caused
Giddings plenty of prob-
lems. Te senior completed
18 passes for 202 yards and
two touchdowns without
throwing a pick. He also led
Gonzales in rushing with
116 yards on 16 carries and
two touchdowns. He had
a long gain of 53 to help
set up one of the Apache
touchdowns.
In the second quarter,
we had the Bufaloes reel-
ing, Crane said. Tey
were tired and ready to be
of the feld. At the start
of the third quarter, they
scored on the opening pos-
session and we never got
the momentum back.
Down 35-24 to start the
third quarter, the Bufaloes
drove 60 yards in seven
plays. Jones had 12-yard
pass to Zach Albers on the
second play to go from the
Giddings 44 to the Apache
44. A few plays later, Hick-
ey scored on a 32-yard run
to help bring Giddings
within 35-31.
On its frst second-half
drive, Gonzales had a hold-
ing call and Philippus was
sacked twice, eventually
resulting in a 32-yard punt
and Giddings was called
for holding on the return,
moving them to their
28. Hickey carried three
straight times for 7, 10 and
16 yards to the Gonzales 49.
A holding call later moved
the Bufaloes back to their
42 and Jones went up top to
Namken for 58 yards and
the 38-35 advantage with
5:20 lef in the third.
Gonzales went three and
out on its next possession
and had very short punt,
giving Giddings the ball at
the Apache 43. Five plays
later, Hickey scored on a
35-yard run to give Gid-
dings more breathing space
at 45-35.
Giddings restrained the
Tribe on fourth down on
the next drive but Gonzales
returned the favor by forc-
ing Giddings to punt from
the plus-39 afer starting at
the plus-38.
Gonzales missed another
fourth-down conversion,
giving Giddings 27 yards to
go for another score. Hick-
ey had a long run of 25 and
then scored on a 5-yard
run for the last score of the
game.
Gonzales took the open-
ing kickof and went from
its 33 to the Gidding 37,
where a Philippus pass
fell incomplete on fourth
down. Jones hit Hickey for
the early score on the next
play.
Giddings got the ball
back on the right side of the
50 but Gonzales came up
with the games frst turn-
over on the interception by
Atlantic Johnson.
Alyas Ramirez and Jai-
me Tellez rotated between
three carries to move the
ball from the minus-31 to
Tis could be a break-
out year for the Gonzales
Apaches cross country
teams with Lady Apaches
who boast a a veteran or
twp with a huge crop of
young runners with poten-
tial and the Apaches, who
fnished in the top two at
the district meet during
2013.
Te girls team has not
been this deep since I have
been here in Gonzales,
head coach Cully Doyle
said. We have a lot of
younger girls coming up
that are used to winning.
Te Jr. High Girls team last
year smashed the district
meet and ran extremely
well taking home the dis-
trict championship. Tese
girls along with the Ken-
dall Fougerat, Ashleigh
Haub, Juana Sanchez and
several others are going to
be a team that is respected
at meets this season.
Kendall has taken her
training to another level
and it is helping to build
this program. Her work
ethic is contagious and re-
spected by all. I expect her
to see great results and I
believe she deserves to see
these results.
Te Apaches came in
second place at district in
2013 and could carry that
momentum to improve to
district title holders this
year.
We have a very tough
district and respect and like
the competition. Ashton
Williams is running really
great. He has been a dif-
ference maker in practice
and I do expect it to show
in the meets, Doyle said.
We will train though the
next eight weeks leading
up to district with the plan
of running our best when it
counts at the District cross
country meet. Ashton has
been doing everything
right and bringing his team
with him.
Te numbers for Doyles
boys team is expected to
be positively afected by the
addition of the frst-ever
Apaches boys soccer team,
which will start practice in
December and play its frst
game in January
We have a great group
of guys coming out for
cross country. Te imple-
mentation of soccer has
showed these guys that al-
ways play soccer that they
can also run and help the
cross country team, Doyle
said.
Gonzales has diferent
training programs for dif-
ferent levels of experience
for the runners.
Some of our men are
running 45-50 miles a
week and some of our girls
are running 28-32 miles
per week, Doyle said. We
have a beginners program
also for any new comers.
Everyone is welcome.
Gonzales started things
with a home meet on Aug.
23 and traveled to Lock-
hart on Saturday.
Doyle proclaimed the
district meet on Oct. 22 in
Seguin as the most impor-
tant for the team.
He said every runner
could be key if they are
consistent but the efort of
the middle runners will be
important with the sheer
number of athletes who
have never ran in a cross-
country meet before.
Te Lady Apaches and
Apaches have a lot of talent
but have to realize and then
sharpen it.
I want to see our ath-
letes run together, get sleep
and take care of their bod-
ies outside of practice,
Doyle said. Te showing
up to practice and follow-
ing a simple plan is the easy
part. I love these athletes.
It is going to be a fun year.
Te girls and boys who
show up and follow the
plan will be successful.

opening win over the Woodsboro Eagles
SHINER Shiner St.
Paul put on an impres-
sive display Friday night
against the Yorktown
Wildcats, pounding out a
35-14 win with a forceful
running game and relent-
less defense.
Yorktown gave the Car-
dinals quite a bit of help,
however, starting when
they mufed the opening
kickof and had to start
on the 10-yard line. Te
Cardinals defense forced
a three-and-out, and on
the next play the ball was
snapped over the head
of Yorktowns punter and
out of the end zone for a
safety. Tis put the Car-
dinals up 2-0, and they
never looked back.
Te frst touchdown of
the game came with 5:36
remaining in the frst
quarter on a TJ Bell run.
Te Cards completed a
pass to the right side for
a two-point conversion to
take a 10-0 lead.
Afer stopping York-
town on another 3-and-
out possession, St. Paul
returned the subsequent
punt and with the help of
a facemask penalty found
themselves on their own

the minus-46. Philippus
had an incomplete pass but
Giddings gifed the Tribe
with a costly pass-inter-
ference foul. Gonzales was
later forced to punt and
then came up with another
turnover as Giddings fum-
bled afer just two plays.
Gonzales was more
successful on the drive
as Philippus shot a pass
to Dalton Kuntschik for
12 yards and turned a
third-down-and-13 play
to fourth-down-and-1 at
the 4. Ramirez punched it
in and Bashaw connected
on the point afer for a tie
game.
Giddings took over four
minutes to get the ball in-
side the 20 but had to settle
for a feld goal to retake the
lead at 10-7.
On the Apaches next
play, Philippus kept on a
zone-read play and gained
53 yards from the 25 of
Gonzales down to the Buf-
faloes 22. A few plays later,
he hit Darrance James on
a pass into the end zone
to help give Gonzales their
frst lead at 14-10
Hickey responded for
Giddings with a 69-yard
run on a one-play drive
with 5:17 lef in the half,
17-14.
Te Apaches then went
ahead on a three-play drive
with Philippus making the

Tribe Trampled: Gonzales comes up short
against Buffaloes despite five second-quarter scores
swing pass from Pena to
Newman between runs
of 21 and 29 yards from
Ramos to get the ball to
the Woodsboro 3. Ramos
cashed it in from there,
with Tom Palacios two-
point conversion run giv-
ing Nixon-Smiley a 14-7
halfime lead.
Te teams traded inter-
ceptions to open the sec-
ond half, with Hugo Ayala
thieiving a toss by Pena
and Sam Moore returning
the favor moments later by
swiping a toss by Moses to
set the Mustangs up at their
own 43. Nixon-Smiley got
to the 25 before penalties
on three consecutive plays
pushed them back to the
45, where they faced a third
down and 26.
Pena and Newman con-
nected to hammer the
point home, with New-
man beating two defenders
then backpedaling to make
a grab and turn it into the
45-yard touchdown play
and a 20-7 lead.
Te Mustangs sealed
the win to open the fourth
quarter with a 13-play, 62-
yard march ending in Ra-
mos 6-yard scoring run.
Pena passed to Moore for
a two-point conversion for
the fnal score.

came on a huge 75 yard run
by Bell with 8:04 to go un-
til halfime. Te extra point
snap was botched and Marco
Ynclans pass attempt was
intercepted, which lef the
score at 23-0.
On the next possession
the Cards would force and
recover another fumble, this
time at midfeld. Teir of-
fense went down the feld
quickly on a 20-yard com-
pletion to Ynclan, and a
personal foul on Yorktown
set them up on the 15. A
few plays later, Bell crossed
the plain for the third time
for a six yard score, but the
Wildcats managed to stop a
run attempt for a two-point
conversion, leaving the score
29-0 at the half.
Afer intermission, St.
Paul resumed where they
lef of afer a 27 yard kick-
of return by Ynclan. A few
plays later, the Cards scored
on a 20 yard completion
to Colton Machart, but the
snap on the extra point was
again botched and Ynclan
was intercepted for the sec-
ond time, putting the score
at 35-0.
Yorktown built a drive
the following possession but
were stopped short yet again
when the stout Cardinal de-
fense forced and recovered
yet another fumble on the
Wildcats 35.
At this point in the game,
St. Paul elected to sub in
some younger players, and
the pace of the game started
to slow as the inexperienced
unit made mistakes and suf-
fered numerous penalties on
ofense. Teir defense con-
tinued to impress, forcing
and recovering another fum-
ble along with two turnovers
on downs.
However, they could not
keep the Wildcats out of the
end zone, as Jonno Weis-
chwill scored on a huge 83
yard run. Te extra point
was no good, however, leav-
ing the score at 35-6. Afer St.
Paul turned the ball over on
downs, Yorktown managed
the fnal score of the game
on a 27 yard run by Ysidro
Garza. Tey attempted a suc-
cessful 2-point conversion,
setting the fnal at 35-14.
Cardinals coach Jake Wa-
chsmuth said he was proud
of his teams conviction early
on and throughout the game:
Tese boys played hard.
Any time the game was in
doubt, the kids stepped up.
He was also surprised
that Yorktown, a team with
a similar ofensive scheme
to theirs, was unsuccessful:
Tey looked good on flm.
Tey were well coached. We
never expected this type of
win but were defnitely hap-
py with it.
When asked about the late
penalties and mistakes, Wa-
chsmuth said, When these
kids look up at the score-
board and see that kind of
lead, they lose focus. Also,
we were playing a lot of
younger guys, but they did
well and got some good ex-
perience.
Te Cardinals play St. Jo-
seph next week in Bryan,
and Yorktown faces the
Leakey Eagles in Leakey for
their second consecutive
road game.

LIVESTOCK
Two close-by teams that
both run the spread ofense
will tangle at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow at Bulldog Stadi-
um to continue their series.
Tis going to be a good
county rivalry game be-
tween two very good foot-
ball teams, Yoakum head
coach Brent Kornegay said.
Tis going to be a
battle, Hallettsville head
coach Tommy Psencik
said. Yoakum is well
coached and they will be
highly motivated to beat
us because we are a smaller
school that has come out
on top the last two years.
Tey are talented and have
lots of speed.
Te Brahmas lost a reg-
ular-season game for the
frst time in several sea-
sons, falling to West Co-
lumbia, 31-20.
Yoakum started of on
the right foot as they com-
pletely destroyed Marion
54-0.
Te Dogs must be ade-
quately prepared for what-
ever Hallettsville throws
at them.
First and foremost, we
must stop the run, Korne-
gay said. We have to keep
Kaden Hardt and Brent
Motal from big gains on
the ground. We must cover
Jimario Grounds and Tren-
ton McGee well because
they are quality receivers.
Kornegay said 11 dif-
ferent players carried the
ball for Yoakum against
Marion, allowing the Dogs
to be fresh in the fourth
quarter.
We need to continue to
rotate players in the back-
feld and stay fresh, he said
Hallettsvilles main pri-
ority will be to continue
getting quarterback Motal
more experience.
West Columbia was his
frst varsity start, Psencik
said. He is a good quar-
terback; we just need to get
him up to speed on playing
varsity ball.
Stopping future Horned
Frog TreVontae Hights
will be the Brahmas frst
focus on defense.
We just have to keep
him contained because he
is the main key for their of-
fense, Psencik said.
Te Brahmas have won
two straight 39-28 last
year and a close victory in
2012, 20-18. Yoakums last
win in the series was in
2011 when the Dogs tri-
umphed 29-15.

tonia plays at rivals Hal-

Flatonia at Hallettsville
Sacred Heart
Flatonia and Sacred
Heart, both coming of
losses in their openers, will
square of in their annual
rivalry game at Brahmas
Memorial Stadium at 7:30
p.m. tomorrow.
Flatonia fell short 21-14
to Tidehaven, succumbing
to fourth-quarter touch-
down.
Te Bulldogs got a kick-
of returned 80 yards for a
touchdown by Gus Ven-
egas and quarterback Bray-
don Mica had a 2-yard
touchdown run but the
Dogs struggled ofensively.
Sacred Heart fell to
Snook 29-6 last week.
Sacred Heart has an-
other good and they will
play hard, Flatonia head
coach Chris Freytag said.
I expect a physical football
game.
Flatonia is big and is
going to be very physical,
Indians coach Pat Henke
said.
Te Bulldogs will need to
shore up the defensive line
by having the tackles play
well.
We have to stop their
run game and force them
to throw, Freytag said.
Te Flatonia ofense will
need to control the line of
scrimmage for the whole
game instead of just a cou-
ple of quarters.
Sacred Heart struggled
with ball security against
Snook.
We had six turnovers
and we will not win with
that many giveaways, he
said.
Sacred Heart also let the
Bluejays have several big
plays.
We have got to be able
to stop Flatonia from mak-
ing big plays, Henke said.
Nixon-Smiley at Tree
Te Yoakum Bulldogs
started 2014 with a huge
win against Marion, 54-0,
on Friday.
Davontay Mathis and
Jared Garza got things go-
ing for the Dogs with a
4-yard run each in the
frst quarter. Quarterback
TreVonate Hights had a
14-yard touchdown pass
to Garza and had a 78-yard
run in the second quar-
ter. Martin Rosales had
an 8-yard run to help put
Yoakum ahead 34-0 at half-
time.
Hights had a third-quar-
ter pass of 21 yards to Ty-
ler Kornegay. In the fourth
quarter, Garza had his third
overall touchdown with a
9-yard run and Travis De-
bault returned a punt 85
yards for a score.

up as they are similar to us,

ton McKinney said. Teir
kids are hard-nosed and
play tough. It is going to be
knock-down game.
Quarterback Jesse Perez
and running back Paul Al-
mendarez will direct the
Bulldog ofense.
On defense, Tree Riv-
ers will come out in an odd
front with a nose guard.
Tey are going to try
to stop our running game
with a solid line and decent
linebackers, McKinney
said.
Key players on the Dogs
defense is linebackers
Weston Huf and Juan Ri-
vera.
Te Mustangs will need
to be able to execute their
running game and shut
down Tree Rivers attack.
Victoria St. Joseph at
Shiner
Shiner holds it frst home
game tomorrow at 7:30
p.m. at Comanche Stadium
against Victoria St. Joseph.
Tis will be the frst time
we have every played St. Jo-
sephs varsity, Comanches
head coach Steven Cerny
said. Our junior varsity
teams have played each
other. We have attempted
to match up our varsity
squads but it just never
worked out. Tis year, there
was a slot in each of our
schedules.
On ofense, the Flyers are
a Wing-T/Slot-T team that
will go under center and
pound the football , much
like the Comanches in their
Veer ofense.
Victoria St. Joseph likes
to run the 4-3 and 3-4 on
the defensive side of the
football.
While running over In-
dustrial with nearly 400
yards rushing, Shiner did
have some miscues on pen-
alties and ball security.
We had fve fumbles and
lots of penalties, Cerny
said. One of the goals for
the frst game was to keep
penalties to a minimum
and it did not turn out that
way.
He said the defense
played very solid in shut-
ting out Industrial.
Te Comanches will see
something diferent this
week.
We will have to play
low and control the line of
scrimmage, and give our
linebackers the chance to
swarm to the ball, Cerny
said.
Tis will be Shiners frst
action at home with the
rejuvenated press box and
goalposts.
It is exciting to play at
home for the frst time with
the new improvements,
Cerny said.
Shiner St. Paul at Bryan
St. Joseph
Te St. Paul Cardinals
look to keep the momen-
tum rolling from their frst
win as they travel to Bryan
to take on St. Joseph.
Our kids excited afer
the frst win against York-
town, St. Paul head coach
Jake Wachsmuth said. In
our game last year against
St. Joseph, a lot of points
were scored.
Te Eagles ofense runs a
spread ofense and is very
balanced in their attack.
Our defense will need
to limit their big plays,
Wachsmuth said. With a
spread attack, the next play
could be a big one. We need
to hold them and get their
ofense of the feld.
St. Joseph sticks with the
odd front/3-4 on the defen-
sive side of the football.
Our ofense needs to
score points and move
the football, Wachsmuth
said. Our ofense needs
to stay on the feld for long
amounts of time so St. Jo-
sephs spread ofense stays
on the sidelines.
Navarro at Luling
Luling continues its
early-season homestand as
the Navarro Panthers come
to Luling Field. Te Eagles
opened with a 33-10 win
over Schulenburg.
Navarro defeated Medina
Valley 20-12 in its opening
game of the season. All but
one of their ofensive plays
was running and Anthony
Grant was the leader with
19 carries with 132 yards
and two touchdowns.
Jared Leal added 94 yards
on 23 carries and Ryan
Young ran for 30 yards on
six carries and one touch-
down.
Luling will need to se-
verely limit the Panther
running game.
On ofense, the Eagles
will need to become more
balanced with a successful
passing game and get plen-
ty of yards on the ground
like they did against Schul-
enburg.

Volleyball roundup: FHS earns wins in Rice
WAELDER Te Shiner St. Paul
volleyball team has been through
some rough times recently.
Te Lady Cardinals were able to lif
their spirits with a 25-10, 25-7, 25-19
win over Waelder Tuesday evening at
the Waelder ISD Gymnasium.
A win is a win and we needed it af-
ter the last couple of weeks, St. Paul
head coach Kayla Nathro said. We
have been a little bit of a slump.
She admitted she does not have a
set lineup for the Lady Cardinals but
this game allowed her to move closer
to the answer.
I was able to try some diferent
people in diferent positions, Nathro
said.
Lady Wildcat coach Joel Williams
was pleased with the progress made
by Waelder.
We got better tonight. Te girls
continue to work hard, he said. Te
girls were more aggressive. We got
better on defense and they never gave
up.
Shiner St. Paul opened the frst set
with a 5-2 lead and then hit hard with
the serves of Mallory Grabarkietvtz
and a kill from McKenzie Kresta to
take a 14-3 lead.
Waelder was able to pull back a
couple of points before St. Paul went
ahead 22-9 and closed out the set
with a 3-1 run.
In the second game, Waelder man-
aged to grab a small lead at the star.
Te Lady Cardinals had difcult pull-
ing away until the serves of Cassidy
Tomas with kills from Morgan Ma-
son and Kenzie Vargo helped them to
15-1 run for the win.
St. Paul took the early lead in the
third set but the Lady Cats would
not go away. Kashanna Durst got a
kill and Malorie Puente got an ace
to close down to 17-14. St. Paul then
scored eight of the next 13 points.
