Guess whos coming to town?

By CEDRIC IGLEHART

County wont extend deal on oil lease


A light agenda was addressed during Mondays regular meeting of the Gonzales County Commissioners Court. After a brief discussion, the court declined to act on an extension agreement oil, gas and mineral lease with TNT Land & Minerals. The lease was for a nearly three-acre plot of land near the cemetery in Saturn. Gonzales County Clerk Lee Reidel informed the court during the public comments session that the deadline for filing to run for office in the upcoming election has been pushed back to 6 p.m. on Feb. 1. The election will also be delayed from its usual date in March. This has to do with the redistricting thats going on, she said. The election is going to be sometime in April, but right now its about as clear as mud and subject to change. In other business, the court approved appointments to the countys Archives and Records Center Advisory Board. The members are William (Bill) Hallmark, Pct. 1; Olen Malaer Jr., Pct. 2; Dorothy Nell Gilkey, Pct. 3; and Janice Williamson, Pct. 4.

A surprise birthday party was held for Gonzales resident Lawrence Fryer Sr. on Dec. 17 at the Edwards Alumni Association Building. Fryer, who turned 80, was honored by several civic leaders including (top) Gonzales Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture director Barbara Hand, who hugged Fryer as Gonzales City Councilman Bobby Logan enjoyed a laugh; and Gonzales Mayor Bobby ONeal presented Fryer with a proclamation commemorating the special occasion.

Two extremely polarizing cases currently going through the criminal justice system in Gonzales County have sparked several outbursts of public outrage. The source of aggravation for people interested in both cases center around the amount of bond set in each issue one generally regarded as so low an accused murderer was immediately freed on bail, the other seemingly as too high in relation to the charges. Tyrone Milton Mitchell, who was arrested and charged with the murder of Dyron James Green on Monday, Dec. 12, was arraigned the following day and set free after posting a $50,000 bond. The bond was set by Gonzales County Precinct One Justice of the Peace Deidra Voigt. On Wednesday, Dec. 14, James DuBose, who is accused of assaulting a Gonzales County Sheriff s deputy last February, was returned to custody in lieu of two bonds set at $500,000 each for charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assaulting a public servant. On the surface it appears a gross inBONDS, Page A3

Today in Texas History


December 22, 1836 On this day in 1836, the General Land Office was established by the First Congress of the Republic of Texas. John P. Borden, the first commissioner, opened the office in Houston on October 1, 1837. He was enjoined by law to superintend, execute, and perform all acts touching or respecting the public lands of Texas. Much of the early business of the office consisted of translating and registering Spanish and Mexican land grants, and issuing headrights, military bounties, homestead preemptions, and veteran donations. Extensive land grants have been used to fund the public debt and education and to develop railroads. Texas is the only public-land state with complete control over its public lands and over the proceeds resulting from the administration and sale of lands.

Thought for the Day

New bond set in assault case


By DAVE MUNDY
manager@gonzalescannon.com

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. Laura Ingalls Wilder

Bond was revoked and re-set at $1 million Wednesday for the man accused of assaulting a Gonzales County Sheriffs deputy last February, and he was returned to custody of the county jail. Judge Dwight Peschel revoked the two $100,000 bonds previously set for James DuBose of Gonzales and set those bonds at $500,000 each on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assaulting a public servant. DuBose remained in custody in Gonzales County Jail on Thursday. The earlier bond had been set with the stipulation that DuBose wear a GPS electronic monitoring device and with travel

restrictions. DuBose is accused of attacking a Gonzales County sheriffs deputy from behind, causing severe injuries, after the deputy had been called to the home of DuBoses ex-wife to break up an altercation between two women. The District Attorneys office asked that bond be denied, a request Peschel initially honored in March of this year, but Peschel set bond at $100,000 on each count during a hearing in April. District Attorney Heather McMinn at the time told The Cannon that The conditions of his bond include no contact with his victims or their family members, a curfew and only traveling from work to school and home, and he is not allowed to step foot in Gonzales County.

BONDS: Judges have criteria to follow in setting bail


Continued from page A1

Happy Anniversary!
December 21st Brenda and Jeff Downey (42 Years)

Want to help your friends and family celebrate? Let us know about the big day by calling 830-672-7100.

consistency exists in regards to the bond amounts, but it just an example of how the magistrate system in Texas operates when it comes to establishing bail amounts. Setting the amount of a bond is entirely at the judges discretion, said Judge Travis Hill, the Justice of the Peace for Precinct Two in Lavaca County. There is no mandate or statute that says if a person is accused of a certain crime, then this is what their bond is going to be. It is entirely up to the judge - be it the County Judge, the JP, whoever. Hill further elaborated that magistrates take into account several factors before determining bond amounts. You look at the crime theyre accused of and what threat they may pose to their alleged victim and the community at large, he said. You look at what is the likelihood of this person being a flight risk who doesnt show back up to court. Does this person have a lengthy criminal record? These are the factors involved. The criteria for establishing bonds are addressed in Chapter 17 of the

Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. Section 15 of that chapter details the rules involved in fixing bail amounts including 1) the bail shall be sufficiently high to give reasonable assurance that the undertaking (subsequent court appearance) will be complied with; 2) the power to require bail is not to be so used as to make it an instrument of oppression; 3) the nature of the offense and the circumstances under which it was committed are to be considered; 4) the ability to make bail is to be regarded, and proof may be taken upon this point; and 5) the future safety of a victim of the alleged offense and the community shall be considered. In addition to these guidelines, there is one other provision that judges must adhere to before reaching their determination a clause commonly referred to as the Four Corners Rule. The Four Corners Rule requires interpretation of the meaning and understanding of the provisions contained in a document, such as a probable cause arrest affidavit, by considering the overall meaning and intention of that document. In such

an interpretation, external factors will not influence the meaning but the meaning of a sentence or clause is influenced by the document as a whole. To restate the definition in laymens terms, it means a judges bail decision can only be based on the information specifically laid out in the arrest document, regardless of how complete, incomplete or inaccurate that information might be. I dont know how things are done in Gonzales County, so I cant comment on that, said Hill. But in my county, Ive never had a PC affidavit that didnt include the persons prior criminal history, economic information and so on. State law also specifically declares that bonds are not designed to be punitive. A bond is not to be punitive in nature, Hill said. Its only to assure that the accused person is going to show up in court and that is it. The bond set in the DuBose matter is not comparable to the Mitchell case because, under the eyes of the law, DuBoses bail amount was set under a totally differently set of circumstances.

DuBose was revoked on two previously set $100,000 bonds after violations arose concerning his GPS electronic monitoring device. District Judge Dwight Peschel, who presided over other factions of the case, re-set the bonds for a total of $1 million. The deputy DuBose allegedly attacked had been called to the home of DuBoses ex-wife to break up an altercation between two women. Section 40 of the code clearly addresses this issue by stating, the magistrate may revoke the defendants bond only if the magistrate finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the violation occurred. If the magistrate finds that the violation occurred, the magistrate shall revoke the defendants bond and order that the defendant be immediately returned to custody. Once the defendant is placed in custody, the revocation of the defendants bond discharges the sureties on the bond, if any, from any future liability on the bond. A discharge under this subsection from any future liability on the bond does not discharge any surety from liability for previous forfeitures on the bond.

Dont mind me, Im just a (poor) corporate shill


Just a quick word here for my corporate masters: guys, I know things get kind of crazy here around the holidays and all, but youre several months past due on my bribes and quite frankly guys, I need some new wheels. Yes, Ive been informed Im a corporate shill because I am either (a) not a progressive, or (b) think Ron Pauls non-interventionist ideas are foolish and naive. Take your pick, or combine the two ... just make sure to spell my name right on the check. Its an accusation Ive come to expect from the progressive types, since they dont make that much sense most of the time anyway. The tried-and-true mantra for the far left over the past decade or so is that anyone or any thing that is conservative, Republican, fiscally sound or promotes personal responsibility is deliberately designed to be harmful to poor people. And of course, those of us who adhere to those ideas, were just greedy so-and-sos who hate poor people. Its an interesting accusation. I hate

Dances with Chihuahuas

Dave Mundy
General Manager

myself. You want to talk about poor? Come swing by Daves place. I have 35 years of journalism experience and more awards than I have wall space and I make less than any first-year schoolteacher in Texas. Whats amusing, to me, is the fact that its all a game of rhetoric to the progressive leadership. Almost all of the most outspoken liberals in this country are themselves abundantly rich rich enough, in fact, to take care of a lot of those poor folks they fret about so. We all know, for example, that mega-retailers like Walmart are evil because they suppress workers

rights and pay dirt wages and benefits. Perhaps rather than judging what cart pushers or cashiers with three months experience make, you should talk to those employees with 10-year or 20-year pins clipped to their badges. I met three millionaires when I was undergoing management training at the Walmart in Alvin: all three were hourly associates whod taken advantage of the companys generous stock-purchase plan and had been with the company 20 years or more, during which their initial purchase of shares had split eight times. All were making more than $20 an hour. And look at how they treat poor people such as the thousands of Hurricane Katrina refugees who flooded into Houston in the wee hours on Aug. 31, 2005, stepping off the bus straight into a Walmart store as greedy Walmart associates and managers handed them vouchers for basic needs, including clothing, food and personal-care kits. All told, during the Katrina emergency Walmart expended $20 mil-

lion in cash donations, 1,500 truckloads of free merchandise, food for 100,000 meals and the promise of a job for every one of its displaced workers. I saw lots of celebrities riding around in boats criticizing mean ol conservatives like George Bush for hating the poor, but I cant recall seeing that many of them lifting a finger to help. Like the progressives, the Paullists can demonstrate some equallydumbfounding logic, especially where it concerns foreign affairs. Being an old Marine, Im wellversed in the lore of evil American imperialism. It was Marine Corps hero Smedley Butler, after all, who loudly proclaimed that war is a racket. There are only two things we should fight for, Butler said. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket. Its a noble sentiment, as I said, and by and large, I tend to agree with it. The problem is that the world Butler described in 1935 and the world that

followers of Ron Paul continue to describe in advocating non-involvement foreign policy isnt the same one you and I live in here in 2011. Time has shrunk the world. We dont have the luxury of waiting for an enemy to come to our shores. We cannot afford to stand by and watch as a nation like Iran a country run by madmen develops nuclear weapons. We cannot stand by idly when other nations (lets use Afghanistan as an example) openly grow and groom assassins to attack us with. These people dont play by the same rules we put on ourselves. Their entire culture is geared toward one purpose: the destruction of Western civilization. We cant wait for them to come to our shores ... because as we saw on 9/11, if we wait, they win. Whats sad is the fact that, apart from foreign policy, Ron Paul and his genre of conservatism make a lot of sense to folks like me. If I could be sure he wouldnt give the farm away to the muzzies, Id support him. But dont mind me, Im just a corporate shill.

School funding law suit shows MALDEF agenda isnt education


Hispanic Liberals and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) are using the race card again. They are claiming that Texas has ignored the educational needs of Hispanic children, and that every Texas child should have the opportunity to go to college and their lawsuit will ensure that opportunity. MALDEF is using Edgewood v. Kirby which mandates that: children who live in poor districts and children who live in rich districts must be afforded

El Conservador
George Rodriguez

George Rodriguez is a San Antonio resident and the first Hispanic in the nation to lead a Tea Party organization. He is a former official in the U.S. Justice Dept. during the Reagan Administration.

If Newt Gingrich is the Republican nominee, he promises to hound President Barack Obama until he agrees to appear with him at a series of Lincoln-Douglas-style three-hour debates. This is a cutting-edge Gingrich proposal -- that he has been making since at least 1992. Back then, he was challenging Boston Mayor Ray Flynn to Lincoln-Douglas debates on urban issues. Gingrichs obsession with the clash between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in the 1858 Illinois Senate race isnt new and interesting; it is a trope of his going back decades. The New Newt surging in the Republican polls overlaps so significantly with the former version that the Old Newt should be suing for copyright infringement. The New Newt talks of teaching a course as president; the Old Newt came to grief

Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review and a syndicated columnist for King Features Syndicate.

teaching a course as House speaker. The New Newt is outraging the left by saying poor kids should work; the Old Newt provoked his opponents by saying more kids should be in orphanages. The New Newts presidential campaign has at times seemed a vast book tour; the Old Newt immediately got embroiled in a controversy over a multimillion-dollar book deal as speaker. The New Newt says hes 68 years old and therefore has mellowed and matured, but the Gingrich story is less the tale of

a slow evolution toward steadiness and wisdom than the fable of the scorpion and the frog. The scorpion stung the frog as it hitched a ride across the river because it couldnt help itself. Newt is intellectually frenetic by nature. Theres something tremendously invigorating about this. They called Lincoln old when he was in his 30s, a testament to his gravity. Newt feels young even though hes about as old as Ronald Reagan when he ran in 1980. If Franklin Roosevelt was like a bottle of champagne, according to Winston Churchill, Gingrich is like a snort of helium. His volatility makes it impossible to make any statement about him as a general-election candidate with assurance. Will he enthuse the Republican base? Yes, right up to the moment he stops enthusing it with some jarring provocation. Will he beat President Obama in

the debates? Yes, right up until he makes an ill-tempered comment that washes away all his impressive knowledge and brilliant formulations. Will he be the bipartisan healer, the partisan bomb-thrower or the post-partisan big thinker? Yes, yes and yes. All that is predictable about Newt is that he is unpredictable, and, irresistibly, an election that should be about President Obama and his record will become about the heat and light generated by his electric performance. Thats the way it was as speaker, too. Eventually, he wore out his welcome in epic fashion. More than a decade after he was cashiered as speaker, hes back on the basis of his superlative handling of the debates. He is better-informed and has more philosophical depth than any of his rivals. Despite all his meanderings through the years, he knows how to win over a conservative audience as well as anyone. The debates have held out the alluring promise of a New Newt. But beware: The Old Newt lurks. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

a substantially equal opportunity to have access to educational funds. MALDEF says school districts suffer from the state budget cuts, arbitrary funding mechanisms, and increasing unfunded or underfunded state mandates make it difficult for school districts to provide students with a quality education and preparation for college and the job market. First, MALDEF alleges that property-poor school districts have suffered from a change in the states funding formula. Second, they feel that because of the inequity in funding, key programs for poor Latinos cannot be funded. Third, they claim that the State has controlled the setting of local tax rates for low wealth districts to the point where such tax regulations have become an unconstitutional statewide ad valorem tax. Because property-poor districts are forced to cap at or near the tax in order to attempt to provide an adequate education, local school districts have lost all meaningful discretion in setting their tax rates. With this lawsuit, MALDEF aims to remedy this problem and help create a better, more efficient school system for all Texas students, Latino and nonLatino alike. However, it is ironic that

this crisis in education is a self-inflicted wound by liberal Hispanics themselves. Because of MALDEFs law suit in Edgewood v. Kirby property-poor districts are forced to cap at or near the tax in order to attempt to provide an adequate education. Local school districts have lost all meaningful discretion in setting their tax rates. Now MALDEF wants to eliminate this cap which could destroy equity among school districts across the state. The new law suit seeks a declaration that the cap remains essential while the state legislature continues to rely on local property values to fund public education. Also, most of the state mandates are a result of liberals wanting to help poor children. MALDEF and other liberals feel that more government (tax payer) money is the answer to better educated students. They ignore that students must have personal initiative and motivation. They ignore the fact that a culture of learning begins at home, and parents must encourage and push their children to study and excel. Liberals should tell us how much it costs to create an A+ student, and let everyone budget for that number as tax payers. I dont think that more funding is really the answer, said James Golsan, an education policy analyst for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a limited-government think tank. Unfortunately, MALDEFs law suit is more about furthering a liberal agenda by using the card than about educating children.

In Your View
The Cannon
Its not the gift that counts; its the thought. A Dumb Saying If youre a nephew or a niece its likely that you have an Aunt. Possibly a number of aunts. But there is always that one Aunt. Considered by the family as being a bit daft. A shade touched. Or eccentric. Out on a distant limb in the family tree. Im reminded of my Aunt Earle. My pappys sister. She married a Christian fellow that farmed. The blacklands up in Falls County. Cotton and corn were the crops that he banked on. Did pretty good, too. After looking back I cant rightly say Uncle Walter, Earles beloved, was the male chauvinist some say he was. Because when she was in her mid-60s or so of age he upped and treated her to a brand spanking new Dodge automobile. A big old pink and white land yacht with a pushbutton automatic transmission. I believe it was on the sixth or seventh stab at obtaining a drivers license before the Department of Public Safety examiner finally figured it was time to let Aunt Earle earn a passing grade. So she was legal behind the wheel, finally. Did she drive that Dodge. She drove. Shed hit the ignition and peer through eyeglasses as thick as the autos windshield and hit that D on the dash to engage the transmission and she was on her way. To town. And once she entered the City Limit of Rosebud it was Katy bar the door. Mothers would call in their little ones and teenagers would lead foot out of the way and walkers would run to get out of her way. That pink and white Dodge was an omen to steer clear of Aunt Earle. On occasion shed stop by to visit with my mother. Always trying to tempt her to take a ride. Perhaps out to the cemetery on the edge of town to work on kinfolks graves. My mother wouldnt even attempt an excuse. Shed outand-out lie to keep from getting in that pink and white Dodge. Never in her born days did she ever open that passenger side door. In the months of April and December of the years I was growing up in Rosebud my Aunt Earle always stopped by the house. Id come be-bopping in the side door by slamming the screen door at the end of the school day with my right pants legged rolled up to my knee to keep the jeans from catching in the bicycle chain and my mother would grin and say, Youre Aunt Earle came by and left you a birthday present. I would show about as much spunk as a dead horse when Id see the envelope there on the kitchen table. Because on every birthday inside the envelope would be a birthday card with a 50-cent piece taped inside where shed scribbled Happy Birthday, Nephew. And then each December as I was out on Christmas vacation once again my mother would inform be that Aunt Earle had made her pilgrimage to drop off gifts.

Winterfest impresses a visitor


Dear Editor: I want to share a thank-you card with your readers and those who made Winterfest a reality Dec. 2-4, 2011. It is from Robert West. His father, Don West, who died in Aug., 2010, was a Real Estate Developer in Austin, and in addition he and two partners including son, Robert, redeveloped Gruene, TX. My husband, Don, and I have been friends of Don and Kay West for 50 years, and we were blessed to have Robert and his wife, Cristabell visit us for Winterfest. Dear Don and Jo Ann: The weekend with you in Gonzales was fabulous. The Christmas Parade and Pioneer Village were great, on Friday evening. The museum (Gonzales Memorial Museum) that Don took me to was really special, on Saturday morning. (While Don and Robert were sightseeing at the Museum, Cristabell and I were shopping at Laurel Ridge Inn and enjoying the beautiful Christmas decorations there, plus getting a tour of the recently created, lovely, B&B upstairs.) I was impressed with how the Mexicans created the public lands in the shape of a Cross. That makes Gonzales a much more unique and interesting place. The architectural store (Discoverys) was great. The 5 homes on the Christmas historical home tour were just fantastic. Although I was a little tired by Saturday evening, the Belmont Social Club was a neat place also. The guy (Tommy Schlein) who sounded like Elvis was great also. Cristabell and I elect you two the tour guides of Gonzales. All the meals (some at Don and Jo Anns house, others at Mr. Taco and Belmont Social Club) were great. You are about the best hosts I have ever encountered. We have to figure out what we can do together this coming year. Love, Robert. Jo Ann Leifeste Gonzales

teacher. I also plan on giving back to the community that helped me in my junior high and high school years. I have been nominated by the National Youth Leadership Foundation to go to one of ten cities, and I hope to go to Houston on July 22-31, 2012. I will be going to study medicine with some of the highest achieving doctors in the United States. I will be receiving two college credits for completing this course. I am asking for community donations to help me on my way. I am also doing fundraisers such as a trail ride, car wash and community work if anyone needs anything done. I need to raise $3,500 for this trip. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. all money raised will go for my trip. Any extra money will be donated to the Blue Santa program and any other community programs as needed. Cheyann Easley 1700 Chalk Rd. Harwood, TX 78632

Night of Nights Havent we all wished we had been there that first Christmas night. The night is so beautiful, so still You can hear a tear drop. Suddenly! Angels singing on high!

Jean Hrincirik Living in the greater Northern Virginia area, Bebe I went to the Occupy DC site a few weeks ago to speak to these people myself. I did not write a column right away although I told the editor I would. I really wanted to digest what they had to say, and give it some serious thought before putting words down on paper. Here is some background about my education to put my opinions into context. I was in the National Guard during undergraduate school, so my four years were free. I had to pay for books, but my parents helped with that. I did work full time at various agricultural jobs depending upon the season to pay my living expenses to include rent, car, phone, etc. Upon graduation seeing no ready job, I joined the Army. I received my graduate degree for free while in uniform, but I still paid for my own books. With that as my background, I went to McPherson Square in our Nations Capitol. I

Letters to the Editor Policy:

There theyd be. Under the tree. Wrapped boxes for my momma and papa and assorted sizes of gift-wrapped boxes for my sisters. Mine would be in an envelope. And when I opened it, yes, there was four-bit piece taped to her wishing me a Very, Merry Christmas. Now I have been known to get emotional. Sometimes have to take a tranquilizer and lie down for half an hour before I could cope or continue. Fr instance! High school graduation. An occasion where the senior gets to send out graduation invitations. To every kin and friend and casual acquaintance. In return, for passing 12 years of institutionalized education, you receive this great - excluding 100 handkerchiefs and a dozen dictionaries - graduation bounty. I was about finished loading up the motor car with my worldly belongings in early June to take off for Lubbock, Texas and my first of many stabs at college. My mother said, Oh, by the way, your Aunt Earle came by and left you a graduation present. It was there on the kitchen table. If youre thinking it was an envelope, youre correct. However, this envelope was thicker than any birthday or Christmas present Id ever receive from my predictable aunt. I hefted the envelope. Considered the thickness. And thought, By golly, good ol Aunt Earle, bless her pea-picking heart, has finally come through. Why, I bet theres some folding money in that envelope. Enough to impress those little coeds on the Red Raider campus. Will Rogers will probably dismount off that bronze horse there at Texas Tech once he espies me with my wad and a good-looking South Plains lassie by me side. So I open the envelope with expectations bigger than Houston Astros fan. Inside was the standard card wishing me the Best of Luck and the traditional 50-cent piece. Reason the envelope was thicker than usual was that Aunt Earle splurged for an item of apparel. Nylon socks. Purple in color. The kind of hose ancient men in their 50s and 60s would wear on Sunday. Now back in those days, and even today, I detest nylon socks like a rabid squirrel hates water. My stockings tend to be cotton and basic white. Anyway, another Christmas is upon on us. May you and yours be blessed and healthy. And continue to be down the road. Even when sizing up gifts of any occasion.

Occupy folks cant do math


Veterans corner
Phil Kiver
quickly found that peeling one person away from the group think was the only way to get some unguarded but thoughtful responses. I was honest with the protestors telling them I was a columnist and not a reporter bound to be unbiased. One young lady told me she would have to take time off from photography school so work and save money to continue her education. I asked her if she thought it was unfair to have to pay for her own schooling? Well I wish I didnt have to work, but I guess I am working for myself, I just wish it wasnt so hard. I asked a 30-something man about his views on the tax rate. Specifically how much of a earned dollar should one be allowed to keep? Well if I earn a dollar I want to keep a dollar. If I earn one thousand dollars I want to keep all of it. If I earn one hundred thousand dollars I want to keep seventy thousand of it, was his thoughtful reply. My response to him was so you believe in a 30 percent flat tax bracket? Dont put words in my mouth, that is not what I said. I guess simple math is beyond these people as well, which is why they think they are the 99 percent.

Business Reports GVEC members offering Ag Market


Thursday, December 22, 2011 The Cannon
Applications are being accepted for a grant funding opportunity newly created through the generosity of members of the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative (GVEC). Called the POWER UP Community Fund, this charitable program will be awarding grants to nonprofit groups involved in community improvement projects in the GVEC service area. What makes the program so unique is how GVEC members are funding it they are literally turning their small change into big change for their communities by pooling pennies from their monthly electric bills. Since last July, electric bills of participating members have been rounded up to the nearest dollar, with the difference in change donated to POWER UP. For example, an electric bill for $125.75

grants via new program


would be rounded up to $126, providing a donation of .25 cents. GVEC members are passionate about their communities, and even in tight economic times, they want to give back to their neighbors. By pooling their pennies each month, the POWER UP fund makes it possible for members to come together to make a significant impact in their areas with a relatively small monthly donation says Darren Schauer, GVEC General Manager and CEO. Grant funds will be distributed for projects focusing on education, youth programs, health care, community development, civic and community outreach, or public safety/service. There will be two funding cycles per year. The first application deadline is Feb. 15, 2012 for an April distri-

Penn Virginia announces Lavaca Co. development

Preliminarily, PVA estimates that a minimum of approximately 40 horizontal drilling locations may exist in the new AMI area, with the potential for additional locations assuming future downspaced drilling.

He was a very good cook and through the years he had prepared barbeque for many local fund raising events. Buddy loved his family; he adored his grandsons and loved to teach them how to fish and appreciate the joys, thrills and beauty the outdoors had to offer. He delighted in taking his grandsons to the pastures to check cattle and just enjoy each others company. Buddy Breitschopf is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Shirley Ann Breitschopf, adoring daughters, Kari Ann Breitschopf and Becky Marie Breitschopf, brothers and sisters-in-law, William and JoAnn Breitschopf and Billy and Carolyn Breitschopf, and two devoted grandsons that will forever cherish their time with their Pappy, Blake and Colby Cox all of Gonzales.

She had reflected on occasion about the simple joys and the tremendous hardships she found while living in poverty. She grew up working at a very young age; living in tents, sleeping on pallets, eating beans from a community kettle set over a camp fire. She recalled dragging endless bags of cotton down long rows in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexicos cotton fields. She reflected on the quarts and quarts of strawberries she picked in Arkansas and Missouri and the multitudes of potatoes she bagged in Kansas. She would sell paper flowers made by her mother for a dime a bunch and her mothers homemade bluing for a dime a bottle. It was at this time, selling these goods door to door, that she discovered how others with modest or affluent wealth lived. She noticed how the clean children lived, and discovered at the same time that libraries, churches and schools were free. She had attended brush arbor meetings with her Methodist parents at the camps in Arkansas, but one day she noticed an open church door inviting her in and how she longed to be a part of that singing congregation. At the age of sixteen, a preacher came to the Prairie Grove, Arkansas camp where her family was working. His message touched her and she and her youngest brother were baptized in the Clear Creek Church of Christ. She distinctly recalled a sermon where he spoke of it being more blessed to give then receive. She recalled humbly accepting hampers of food, boxes of groceries and bundles of worn out clothing from folks driving shiny black cars delivering to those less fortunate. How she longed to be one of those people that had something to give, because it was more blessed to give then receive. Opal had one simple goal in her life then, to have the riches of mind and spirit to give freely to those in need. To this end Opal Armina Pruitt continued to give through the course of her life. To this end she imparted the same spirit of giving to her son, grandchildren and prayed that her great-grandchild would know of her willing spirit to give, for it is indeed more blessed to give than receive, a notion we should all administer in this season of giving, Christmas.

a simple rule made popular by an admired American hero, I wont be wronged, I wont be insulted and I wont be laid a hand on. I dont do these things to other people and I require the same from them. Rays nickname was Moose, a moniker that stuck with him because of his booming voice and larger than life physique. Although Ray was a firm handed man, he was a fair man, he inspired confidence in others and he tried very hard to lead by example and successfully teach the ins and outs of oil field work. Ray had a deep passion for fishing and hunting. He had been an avid coon hunter in his early years as well.

The Gonzales Art Group held their annual Christmas Luncheon at Tonys on Saturday, Dec. 3. There was a great turnout and the food was excellent. Most of the members were in attendance and some of them brought their family and other guests. Each member was asked to bring art items for donation to the Santas Helpers and Normas House. There was a large box collected that was so full that there were several gift bags as well. Denise Langston of Santas Helpers came to pick up the donation. She said that there were several requests for various art items and that this should fill the requests and more. Many items such as color-

be forwarded to Normas House for young ones to enjoy. Members also brought non-perishable canned meats, vegetables and fruits to donate to the food drive (GVEC and GCAM). Last but not least, members also donated cash to help support the Gonzales Learning and Career Center. Enough was collected to help provide scholarships for GED tests or whatever is most needed. The Gonzales Learning and Career Center allows the

art group to hold workshops at the center. In turn regisetred students are welcome guests at the art groups workshops. Every one had a great time visiting as well as sharing the holiday spirit.

LULING The Luling City Council will meet in special session today at 4 p.m. at Luling City Hall. The lone agenda item is the consideration for allowing the Luling Chamber of Commerce to sell alcohol during its upcoming Gamblin On the River event, which will be held on Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. at the Zedler Mill Pavilion. The issue was first addressed during a special meeting held on Dec. 19 when the Chamber was planning on applying for a mixed beverage permit for the event, but the idea was nixed because the event also lets people bring in their own liquor. We did some checking into things and have found with this permit they are seeking, its not legal for them to sell alcoholic beverages at the same time you are also allowing people to bring them in, said Luling city manager Bobby Berger during the meeting. Based on the information we received from TABC (Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission), I dont see how we can approve this.

Chamber president Ada Kyle apologized to the council for making the request because it was based on some bad information she received. She then asked the council to grant another request based on her own research from TABC. The simple remedy that was offered up to me was to get a beer and wine temporary permit, then per TABC, you can allow a BYOB, she said. Kyle was then informed that in order for that request to be considered, it must be listed as an agenda item. Since the council is required to post meeting notices at least 48 hours prior, they agreed to meet Thursday in order to deal with the matter as quickly as possible. Before setting the new meeting date, Berger told the council there was more to explore in regards to alcohol sales at civic events. Whats been brought to light is since we do have liquor by drink in Luling now, we really need to establish a policy if were going to allow these type of events to take place, he said. I think it would be very wise for us to look into it for future events.

RFL Sponsorship

Holmes Foods in Nixon, represented by Tom E. Lester, Sr. Pal Lester, Ricky Lester, and Tom Lester, Jr., is a Gold Sponsor for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life 2012. They recently presented a $2000 check to Event Chair Arline Rinehart and Sponsorship Chair Jo Ann Low. The Lesters realize the importance of their donation. Tom, Sr. and Pal both noted the large percentage of money donated to ACS that is used for cancer research, patient services, and education on prevention and detection. They choose to Relay because Tom, Sr., is a cancer survivor; Pals sister-in-law lost her cancer battle as did the mother-in-law and father-in-law of Ricky Lester; and Tom, Jr.s grandfather also battled cancer many years ago. Long-time supporters of the ACS Relay For Life, Holmes Foods and the Lesters are TENacious about the Fight. (Courtesy Photo)

WISD trustees review districts accountability


By CEDRIC IGLEHART
region@gonzalescannon.com

WAELDER The Waelder Independent School District held a public hearing Monday night to present its 2010-11 Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS). The AEIS is a report generated annually by the Texas Education Agency and is based on a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The performance indicators include Texas Assessment of Knowledge Skills (TAKS) results by grade, exit-level TAKS cumulative passing rates, attendance rates and college readiness indicators. The district received an academically unacceptable accountability rating for 2011. WISD students scored below the state average across the board on the TAKS test for grades 3-6. The largest discrepancies were shown in the scores of the districts fifth graders, of whom 40 percent passed on all phases of the test. The state norm is 75 percent. Due to the districts low enrollment rate (for example, there are just 17 students in the fifth grade), its easier to garner lower passing

rates because each student weighs heavily against the class average. The TAKS passing rate gets better in the middle school grades, particularly in the seventh grade. The writing portion was passed by 99 percent and the reading portion by 94 percent. A low rate of the math portion (47%) prevented the class from achieving the state norm of 75 percent on the test as a whole. In terms of college readiness, the report showed 38.5 percent of the Class of 2010 took the ACT test and their average score was 15.8. The state ACT average score was 20.5. The report did contain some good news for the district in terms of attendance, where their rate of 96.7 percent and dropout rate of 1.1 percent where both higher than state averages. Superintendent Mark Weisner said the district was made aware of its AEIS results months before its release and several new programs have already been implemented to help the district improve. No members of the public attended the hearing. The AEIS for Waelder ISD can be read in its entirety online at http://ritter.tea. state.tx.us/cgi/sas/broker. WAELDER, Page B3

Are you sure you are saved? Most arent that sure
Millions of Christian church members worldwide were asked this question years ago by the Campus of Crusade for Christ International. The survey results showed that up to 90% of all good, churchgoing Christians were unsure. The reason so many people doubt their salvation may be that they dont understand what it means to be saved. Some people may think that to be saved one must feel saved. While its true that a few people have a spiritual experience at the point of their salvation, most do not. Emotions cant be used as the evidence of salvation because they are too deceptive. Other people may think that being tempted and falling into sin is impossible once they are saved. This is not true. Salvation wipes out our past sinful history, but it does not immediately make us holy. Changing our character will take time; it will take a sincere commitment to eliminate ungodly habits and behavior. So, believers sometimes lose the battle to temptation and occasionally do what is wrong too. However, when we are saved there is a sincere

However, he still has no immune system. So Lindsay and Clint have had to sit down and make some tough decisions about where and what treatment options to use next. They could have gone to Cook County Treatment Center near Fort Worth/Dallas because Lindsays family lives near there. Then they were told about the Childrens hospital in Houston, and the Treatment Center in San Antonio. They finally settled on the treatment center in Houston as they could be in the room with case Case 24/7. They could be moving Case sometime this week. I guess as long as they can keep him well until he gets his transplant, then they are mostly okay. Keep praying. This is no time to stop praying. Much to my disgust, I got the stomach virus and

did not get to go to a couple of events, the most interesting being the live nativity scene at the Belmont United Methodist Church. I got some great pictures to fill in my find. I cannot believe that they had a donkey. The weather made it just perfect for all the beautiful cloaks that had been stitch by the ladies. It was perfect to have some younger shepherds under the tutelage of Mike Bond as he guided them around the corner. After Mary and Joseph were seated in the Manger, there were surrounded by the most beautiful angels that I have ever seen. They were flanked by the wise men and shepherds. Gail Schauer was hidden on the porch playing the organ for the carols. And I agree with Mike Bond, that the lighted cross on the front of the

church needs to stay there. It makes that little white church that much more beautiful. Joshua Wilson has winged his way toward Kentucky. He has to hit the Nashville, TN airport and be picked up from that airport. I am glad that he likes going to see his mother and other kinfolks. It is a whole different area of the country. It was clear and cold when he arrived. I know that they had a wonderful time over at the Monthalia United Methodist Church where they sang many Christmas Carols and wished each one the joys of the holidays too. So on Christmas Eve most of us will be with family and for those who are taking off traveling, I want to wish you the safeness of God watching over

you and keeping you safe. Celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. I think that by now my brain has engaged in things that need to be done for Christmas to the point that this column is a backward glad. I have had all the help I can stand from Dililah and Samson with my card making. Samson really does not like glued things attached to his feet. However, he has discovered he likes blueberry, very vanilla, and strawberry yogurt. Please dont feed that big kitty peach yogurt. He will spit that stuff back up just like a mad baby. Dililah now, she wants chicken salad. You see how those babies stand in our household. Have a good week; let me get this into copy, Merry Christmas, and God Bless!!

Eloise Estes
desire to do what is right out of love for God and we regret doing anything that we know will offend God. And we are quick to repent. Now, understand that repentance means turning around and going in the other direction. Repentance is a heart change; it is not simply a movement of the lips mouthing empty words. Continually choosing to do what is wrong is evidence of an unchanged heart and an unsaved life. Its also possible for godfearing people to know about Christ and to be devoted to a Christian denomination without really knowing Christ. Salvation has nothing to do with adherence to church laws and regulations and doing good things for others. These things are good, but they are not the way we are saved. Salvation comes by faith in the Word of God. To be certain of your eternal position with God you must first determine if

you trust God enough to believe what He has said in scripture. The Bible is the written Word of God and is all 100% literally true. It forms the foundation of our faith, and if any part of it is disregarded, we are ignoring part of Gods message to us. You cant believe one truth and toss out the rest. Every written word was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Everything you need to know about God (the Father), salvation through Christ (God the Son), and God, the Holy Spirit, is in the Bible. All scripture must be trusted as your complete and unfailing source for the answers you are seeking. But, to receive what you need, you must first believe. Those who do not believe that the Christian bible is the guide book for living, and that the words in the bible originated with God, are missing the fundamental source of assurance. Its impossible for anyone to give their life over to God without trusting that His plan will benefit them better than their own plans. Trust comes by knowing someones nature. For instance, a child learning to swim will jump into the water into his fathers arms because he trusts that he will be caught. He is unafraid because he knows his fathers nature. A father reveals himself daily to his child by what he does and says. He earns his childs trust by his consistent and

unfailing love. God reveals Himself to you and me through what He does in our lives, and through what He says through scripture. He has done this so that we will come to know and trust Him. And all who leap out in child-like faith to grab hold of His promise of eternal life will be saved and experience an inner transformation in this life as well. Salvation means being rescued from something. In the case of Christian salvation, it means being rescued from eternal separation from God. The

Bible tells us that we were created to have a special relationship with God and to be with Him forever. Unfortunately, Adam did something God told Him not to do and that original plan changed. But disobedience did not change Gods love for us. He provided the way to receive our original destiny and renew our broken relationship with Him. Romans 5:8 tells us that God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful. The pact that bridges the gap separating man from God is Jesus. He

is the only bonding agent God will accept. God has promised in Romans 10:9 that you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord and if you believe with all your heart that God raised him from death. We should celebrate Christmas because of who Christ is. We should celebrate Christmas because of the reason Christ was born. His birth paved our way to heaven. This is the greatest gift any of us will ever receive. But, the gift must be accepted. Love, Eloise

County GOP launches 2012 campaign

Gonzales County Republicans kicked off the 2012 election season during their annual Christmas party Saturday at the Belmont Social Club. County chairman Ray Hause introduced a number of current office-holders as well as candidates for several offices, noting the party has made great strides in the last year. He said three current county officials have plans to leave the Democractic Party to join the GOP, and the Republican candidate for County Tax Assessor-Collector, Crystal Cedillo, had picked up the endorsement of the retiring Norma Jean DuBose, a Democrat. I really think their switching parties is indicative to Obamas lack of leadership, at least this is the perception I have gotten form each candidates, the Democratic Party left them as it was in my own case, Hause said. Several candidates seeking district and congressional offices were also on-hand for introductions. Those candidates included Patricia Finch, seeking to unseat 25th Judicial District Attorney Heather McMinn; and two of the three candi-

dates for the 25th Juducial District bench seat being vacated by Judge Dwight Peschel Stephen Finch and Bill Old. also seeking the post is Kevin Kolb. The current indeterminate status of congressional redistricting will push back the traditional March primaries to April and extend the date for filing for county posts until February, but it will have an even greater impact on two of the other candidates on-hand Saturday. Congressman Blake Farenthold currently represents District 27, and could wind up representing either all or part of Gonzales County, depending on whether the state legislatures re-drawn map or a court-ordered map is used. If the courtordered map is used, the southern half of Gonzales

Marc Young

County would become part of District 34. There is so much in limbo, noted Marc Young of Sealy, who has filed as a candidate for District 34 but could wind up opposing Farenthold if the state-drawn map is even-

Stephen Finch

tually given a green light. The delayed campaign, for someone whos having to be real judicious with money at the moment, can be real confusing. But Im looking forward to working with Gonzales County either way.

The Cannon

The Flatonia volleyball team won the most number of matches in school history and advanced to the regional tournament. With setter/middle blocker Leanna Dunk and head coach Rodney Stryk having so much to do with the Lady Dogs spectacular run, they were named as the Most Valuable Player and Coach of the Year, respectively, for the 2011 Cannon All-Region Volleyball team. Dunk was proud to be named MVP, an honor she said anyone on the team was worthy of. The senior helped the Lady Bulldogs to 34-10 record, the best in the history of the program. For the season, Dunk had 529 kills, 440 assists, 139 digs, 87 blocks and 51 aces. Those stats were impressive enough to land her on the Texas Girls Coaches Associations All-State team. If there is anyone to

thank, its God for granting me the ability to play the sport I love, Dunk said. Its been such a great experience, and accomplishing this wasnt even one of our goals. We just worked so hard as a team and had such great chemistry that winning seemed inevitable. The Lady Dogs had to face adversity in the form of injuries to key personnel and ended up stronger as a result. At first, none of us knew what we were going to do, said Dunk. No one ever plans for injuries, so when they started happening we were struggling to fill temporary gaps. What should have been a setback helped everyone on the team acquire skills of a position they normally would have never played. We did what any good team does, we adjusted. While the Lady Bulldogs had a goal of playing in the VOLLEYBALL, Page C2

RFL 5K run coming up

state tournament, this season still left them with plenty of wonderful memories. Flatonia bowed out of the playoffs after losing three straight matches to Burton in the Class 1A Region IV semifinals. I wanted more for us, said Dunk. We all wanted so much to walk on the court at Strahan Coliseum (the site for this years state tournament) and see our fans in the crowd cheering us on, but God had a different plan for us. Our team was irreplaceable, and there was no doubt we were a family. We worked hard to get to the regional tournament, and when our road ended there it was heart breaking. Everyone talks about that one team, that one season that theyll never forget. Well, we have ours. Stryk credited the work and efforts of his players as the major factor in him getting our Coach of the Year award. I am very honored to receive this award, he said. It is a testament to the hard work, preparation and dedication of the kids over the past couple of years. Looking back, we had a tremendous season. We started the season winning 12 of 13 matches and then had a minor setback with a couple of injuries before getting on a roll right before the playoffs. Coming up a couple of points short in the regional tourney was disappointing, but overall it was a fun ride. All of the Flatonia seniors have started on varsity since their sophomore year, and this years run was a culmination of all of their work the last couple of years. We started this process three seasons ago when the five seniors were sophomores on varsity, Stryk said. To watch them go from 18-18 that season to 34-10 this year is a great accomplishment, but being around these kids and watching them grow into young adults with great character and work ethic is most rewarding to me. 2011 Cannon All-Region Volleyball Team Coach of the Year Rodney Stryk, Flatonia MVP Leanna Dunk, sr, Flatonia Setters Cassie Stafford, sr, Shiner (872 assists, 245 digs) Jessica Cantu, sr, Gonzales (36.3 assists a game) Alexandra Bruns, sr, Flatonia (611 assists, 51 aces, 207 blocks, 221 digs) Shelby McElroy, sr, Hallettsville Sacred Heart (443 assists, 104 digs, 68 aces, 49 kills)

Falls City gives Lady Mustangs solid test

NIXON As far as the Lady Mustangs are concerned, Class 1A Falls City will be the toughest opponents on the 2011-12 schedule. Nixon was able to run with the Beaverettes, who are ranked No. 10 by Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) for Class 1A Division 1, for three quarters before falling 60-43 Friday afternoon at Nixon-Smiley High School. I thought we played pretty well with a very good basketball team, Lady Mustangs head coach Jeff Van Auken said. We down by just two points to start the fourth quarter and I told the girls that Falls City is probably the best team on our schedule.

They went to the state tournament last year and have a shot at getting back this year. He said Nixon did well in handling the pressure of Falls City and moving the ball against the press for majority of the ball game, but the Beaverettes asserted themselves in the last period. In the fourth quarter, Fall Citys tenacity and experience took over. They started the fourth quarter with some easy baskets they created with their pressure and we just could not recover at that point, Van Auken said. The Lady Mustangs got a 5-2 lead early in the contest as Jennifer Flores assisted on an Abgail Scarbrough jumper and DLaine Palacio sank a three after the pass from Jazmin Erskin. Falls City went on top 6-5 as Amber

Proski sank a couple of free throws and Camari Crawford scored off a steal. The Beaverettes used a small 9-6 run to end the first frame. In the second stanza, Palacio made another triple and Scarbrough scored to put Nixon ahead 16-15. Falls City answered with a two-point shot to go ahead by one point. Nixon went ahead 19-17 as Alena Alvarez assisted on a Kelby Henderson shot from downtown. Falls City then scored five of the next six for the 22-20 lead. Flores made a two to tie the game but the Beaverettes later went ahead 28-23. Alvarez turned a steal into a two-point bucket and Henderson netted a jumper af-

ter rebounding a missed shot to cut Falls Citys lead to 28-27 at the break. The Beaverettes opened the third period with a 4-0 run, and Nixon replied with six straight points as Alarez, Flores and Savannah Martinez all made baskets. Later, the visitors went ahead 39-35 and Alvarez scored to close the gap at the end of the frame, Nixon down 39-37. Falls City put the game away early in the fourth with a 15-0 run, getting some of the baskets from Nixon turnovers. The Lady Mustangs got their first basket with less than three minutes to go as Flores took a Megan Guerra pass and scored. Alvarez scored closer to the end of the period to bring the Lady Mustangs to within 60-43.

Committing to a healthier lifestyle continues to be one of the most popular New Years resolutions for millions of Americans. And this year, Texas State Parks are providing more than 40 places where folks can do just that--many of which are located close to major metro areas. As part of the national umbrella First Day Hikes program set forth by the National Association of State Parks Directors (NASPD), 48 state parks across Texas are scheduled to offer a wide variety of hikes and nature walks this New Years Day. Hiking outdoors is great to do any time, and a novel way to ring in 2012, especially with a group or as a family, said Chris Holmes, director of interpretation for Texas State Parks. Hiking not only gets people outdoors to experience nature, but its also healthy. Participating in a First Day hike is a good opportunity to begin a New Years resolution for healthier living right off the bat. The concept of having an official First Day Hike in

Many Texas parks feature photo) a park on New Years Day originated more than 20 years ago at the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park in Milton, Massachusetts, with the intent to promote both wellness and yearround recreation at parks. Since then, other states have offered similar New Years programs; however, this is the first time all 50 state park systems have joined together to officially sponsor First Day Hikes. What better way to kick off the New Year than with

boardwalk trails. (TPWD a hike at a state park? said Ruth Coleman, President of NASPD. Think of it as the start of a new and healthy lifestyle for the whole family. Whether folks are staying close to home or traveling, they can join us at one of Americas State Parks on New Years Day, just about anywhere in the country. First Day Hikes vary in difficulty and fitness levels, and range from short, leisurely nature walks through forested trails and along boardwalks, to special bird watching hikes, to climbs into the mountains of the Chihuahuan Desert. Most all hikes will be guided by state park staff and volunteers and feature an interpretive message about native plants, animals or park history. The walks average one to two miles in length, but many also offer shorter or longer trek options as well. Participants will want to make some modest advance preparations. Some hikes warrant callahead reservations, and in most instances, folks will want to wear sturdy shoes, and bring drinking water and a hiking stick. Park entrance fees apply in most places, and many parks are leading the First Day Hike at no extra cost. Recent on-site visitor surveys in Texas parks revealed that hiking and trails were the No. 1 most sought-after amenity by park visitors. And according to State Parks Director Brent Leisure, hikers in the Lone Star State have even more incentives to be outside come years end. Outdoor recreation during the holidays has been a popular activity for a long time, and here in Texas, it makes even more sense because the weather is often mild enough to do most anything. And many of our parks have either just completed or are in the process of renovating and improving their hike and bike trails. Were proud to offer folks a lot of choices with an organized network of First Day Hikes, and proud that we have so many wonderful places in our state park system for people to enjoy them.

Happy Birthday B.J. Harkey

yourself as the center of attention, and frankly, you will probably love every moment of it. Just dont let all the attention go to your head. ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, sometimes you just have to let a person go. If theres no getting this person to come around to your way of thinking, its best to devote your energy elsewhere. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you have nothing to hide, so speak your mind when a family member asks for your two cents this week. Just keep in mind he or she may not be ready for what you have to say. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you dont have to be asked twice to lend a hand when someone needs help. Thats what so many of your friends admire about you -your selflessness. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, trust your instincts because they often do not let you down. You have a feeling about someone close to you and what you will discover is how on target your gut can be. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, instead of making things more difficult than they have to be, simply put out the word that youre looking for some help and youll likely find a bunch of takers. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you may have to cut a trip short because something that is high priority comes up unexpectedly. You may want to reschedule your plans for next week. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, this week you may find SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, sometimes it can be difficult for you to express the things that are in your heart, but this week you further your relationship with some muchneeded conversation. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, take a chance on something you thought you couldnt master. You just may be surprised at what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, think about how you want the week to go and then focus your energy in that direction. Its amazing what a little mental energy and some help from the stars can do. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Lately it seems like youre working very hard at not being happy, Aquarius. All it takes is a little change in perspective to turn it all around. Capricorn plays a key role. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, go on an old-fashioned date if youve been in a relationship for some time. It could add a spark that you need.

It was American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce who made the following sage observation: There is nothing new under the sun but there are lots of old things we dont know. Those who study such things say that when a ladybug is frightened, it squirts a foul-smelling goo from its knees. You might be surprised to learn that approximately 40 percent of the oxygen in the worlds atmosphere is provided by the verdant plant growth of South Americas Amazon River basin. Mayan artwork dating back as far as 700 A.D. shows people preparing chocolate beverages. Chocolate was so valued by the natives of the Americas, the Maya even used cacao beans as currency. For reasons that arent quite clear, in 1960 Macys department store introduced a vending machine that dispensed mens underwear. After an initial flurry of shoppers coming to see the new contraption, the machine was doomed to obscurity due to lack of interest. Heres a question for the ladies: Are you a

philematophobe? If youre a woman who hates to be kissed, you are. In 1958, then-Vice President Richard Nixon made a state visit to Venezuela. It seems he wasnt terribly popular there, and one of the protesters spit on him. The Secret Service detained the man, and an irate Nixon kicked him in the shins. Only about 37 percent of the newspapers published in the Unites States are recycled. The next time youre

thinking about getting a new pet, consider this: Animal behaviorists say that a puppy cant hold a memory for more than 45 seconds. Researchers at Yale University have determined that people think more efficiently in the winter than in the summer. *** Thought for the Day: A bore is a man who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company. -- Gian Vincenzo Gravina (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.
