Treatment for Different Forms of AcneAcne is a skin condition where the ends of the hair are filled with oil

and dead skin cells. When the area is open at the surface, that placebecomes a “blackhead”. If the ends are closed, then it is called a “white-head”. Sometimes, the ends of the hair follicles become infected or in-flamed and the lesion becomes red with a pus filled center called a pimple.Acne may affect the face, shoulders, neck and back because more oil isproduced in those areas of the body. Factors that may lead to acne in-clude an overproduction of oil and bacteria in the skin and hormonalchanges. Certain medications such as corticosteroids, lithium, and test-osterone therapy are reported to have the potential of increasing the riskof acne.

To help prevent scarring, it is best to start treatment as early as pos-sible. Over-the-counter (OTC) lotions that contain benzoyl peroxide,salicyclic acis, or sulfur may help treat the milder form of acne. Prescrip-tion medications like tazarotene (Tazorac) or tretinoin (Retin-A) may helpprevent plugging of oil and bacteria in the hair follicles. A combination ofmedications may be best for severe acne. Benzoyl peroxide combinedwith an antibiotic clindamycin (Benzaclin) or erythromycin (Benzamycin)is available as a lotion that has been shown to help treat severe acne.

by NATAlie GeNTRyNo one was seriously hurt in

a mid-morning wreck Thurs-day, March 20 on East High-way 199 near Rhoades Lane in Springtown.

According to Texas Depart-

ment of Public Safety Trooper Simon De La Cruz, a red Toyo-ta Tundra driven by Karl Black was in the eastbound lane turn-ing left onto Rhoades Lane when it was struck from behind by a black Oldsmobile Alero.

De La Cruz said Autumn Thomas, the driver of the Alero, may have been distracted and didn’t see the Tundra stopped in the road.

Both Black and Thomas were taken to Texas Health Azle with

non-life-threatening injuries. Amanda Arington and her

5-year-old Tobias Kirby were also passengers in the Alero but declined transport to the hospital.

They later drove to Texas Health via a private vehicle.

A black Oldsmobile Alero driven by Autumn Thom-as struck the back of a Toy-ota Tundra on east Highway 199 outside of Springtown March 20.

Commerce is offering document destruction services for both businesses and individuals.

Confidential materials are

kept in a locked container at the Chamber office off the Square until the shredding truck ar-rives – usually the first week of the month.

All documents are taken di-

rectly to the truck where hy-draulic lifts dump the container and the papers are shredded within minutes.

The Chamber provides pro-tected file shredding for the

cost of $5 per copy paper box.Shredding confidential infor-

mation to protect sensitive per-sonal and corporate data makes business sense, particularly when you keep in mind the cost a security breach and the reputation damage that follows amounts to.

Research shows it can take up to a year to recover from a security breach.

With growing worldwide se-curity threats and more strin-gent privacy regulations, small businesses – as well as individ-uals – can take steps to avoid becoming the latest victim of identity theft and fraud by us-ing the Chamber’s shredding service.

Hello Azle and Springtown areas. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Robert Rosales and I am a Texas Licensed Auctioneer (Lic # 17184) and a Licensed Realtor in the State of Texas. I am also a proud member of the National Auctioneers Association, The Texas Auctioneers Association, as well as the National Board of Realtors. I am the owner and operator of Rocking R Auctions and Realty. We have taken over the auctions being conducted at 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. We pride ourselves in being not only a full service auction company, but a fair and honest company as well. I have been in the auction industry for more than 10 years working various positions and have been the owner/lead auctioneer for the past 2.5 years. We do not have any connection with the last auction company that was providing auction services at this location. We do offer many different services to our clients and customers. We do have a regular 2nd Saturday Gallery Auction at 404 W Main St in Azle, TX. And if we happen to have an overfl ow of items (which we usually do) then we will add another auction during the month as well. But we do not only do Gallery Auctions, we also provide onsite auction services. This includes Estate, Moving, Liquidation, Farm and Ranch, Property, Multi-Parcel, Benefi t and Charity Auctions. We truly believe in the Auction Method of Marketing. We are a true full service auction company. We will take care of all logistics and aspects of your auction from advertising, marketing, display, selling, and clean up. Why settle for anything less than the BEST? Our next upcoming auction will be on April 5, 2014 at 10:30am in the parking lot of 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. It will be the 1st annual Azle Spring Trunk Auction. What is a trunk auction? It is a consignment auction with a twist, be it a really fun twist. You as the consignor will load the items you want sold into the trunk of your car, the back of your SUV, or the bed of your truck. Beginning at 9:00am the morning of the auction, we will start to assign you a parking spot (fi rst come fi rst to be sold). Then beginning at 10:30am we will open the trunk of your car, SUV or Truck and begin selling the items from your vehicle. No reserve (or minimum bid) will be allowed to be placed on any item and we will sell them to the highest bidder. Once we fi nished with your vehicle, you will pull out, we will move to the next vehicle, and the next consignor in line will pull in. We will continue this until all the items in the vehicles have been sold. This is a very exciting auction for both buyers and sellers. This is because there is no preview day for this auction and everyone will be able to see what’s up for sale at the same time, even the auctioneer will not know what is going to be up for sale until it is time to auction your items. Our regular consignment auction is schedule for March 12, 2014 at 10:30am at 404 W. Main St in Azle, TX. We are now taking consignments for this auction. Good items for Gallery Auctions are: Cons, Currency, Knives, Jewelry, watches, in good condition furniture, NASCAR items, Tools, Cast iron cookware, Vehicles, Trailer, Motorcycles, Travel Trailers, and coming soon our FFL so we can start to sell guns, and much more. Bad items for Gallery Auctions are: Clothes, items left over from your garage sale, DVD’s, VHS tapes, Cassette Tapes, CD’s, newspapers, ceramic fi gurines, broken furniture, non-complete sets of dishes and glasses, depression glass, and more. With property Auctions, we can go from signing the contract, selling the house, and funds at closing in 60 days or less. Why would you want to use the traditional method of waiting and constantly reducing your price just to get it sold sometime in the next year?Let us show you what a true professional auction company can do for you whether it’s in our gallery or on your property.

keep the access to the post of-fice open as well as the entries near Highway 199 and at Bon-nie Belle Lane.

“Since the fence plans com-plied with our ordinance, we had to issue the permit.” Krey said.

Rick Dauenhauer, owner of N.E.A. Enterprises on Bon-nie Belle Lane, is one of the

community members who has voiced concern and frustration with the construction.

“The fence posts have made it impossible for the 18-wheelers who deliver supplies to back up to the shop,” Dauenhauer said. “It has blocked the easement to our gate.”

Dauenhauer also questioned the impression the fence will give new and perspective area business owners.

“When a new business moves to an area, one of the first places the owner goes is to the post of-fice,” he said. “The fence isn’t very inviting and could make those people wonder about the community.”

Another concern is the aes-thetics value – or lack thereof – of the fence.

But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Owner of the Laundromat, Karl Klement, says that there is no ill intent involved in the erecting of the fence.

“We’re putting up a nice black fence,” Klement said. “With the repairs to the park-ing lot and the addition of the fence, the area is going to look very nice.”


Fence has some perplexed

Concerns regarding ac-cess to the Springtown Post Office top the list of questions surrounding the fence at 400 block of east Highway 199.

Some businesses claim to be experienced. But for White’s Funeral Home that’s a bona fide fact.

White’s has been offering funeral services in this area for more than 100 years.

Those services include funeral arrangements, chapel, church, or graveside services, cremation plans, and pre-need plans.

The large, experienced staff includes funeral directors and knowledgeable office personnel and attendants – all available to assist with every family’s needs.

In 1908, 26-year-old W.A. White began his career in Springtown. Eventually, that family business would span more than a century and entail four generations.

Selling coffins, often made from native wood, for the general mercantile store, White moved to Poolville in 1913 then to Weatherford the next year where he purchased an undertaking company.

W.A. White determined that a funeral home with a director would become important in the future.

In 1930, he built the original White’s Funeral Home at 130 Houston Avenue in Weatherford. That building remains as the home office and staff members continue to conduct funerals there.

White’s business expanded and family members were recruited to help. His son, Ford White, worked in the business and now Bob White is the third generation owner and

current president.Longtime Weatherford resident Charles

Hamilton worked at the funeral home for more than 50 years.

White and son Ford moved back to Springtown in 1954 to start another funeral home. W.A. White wanted to thank Springtown and Poolville for their early support of his business.

J. L. Oxford was the resident manager at the Springtown funeral home for many years.

In 1980, Bob and Carolynn White purchased Memory Gardens of the Valley Memorial Park, and in 1986, they acquired funeral homes in Azle and Mineral Wells.

He now sits on the board of the Funeral Director’s Life Insurance Company which insures almost $1 billion in pre-need plans.

In 2012, Bob White was named the North Texas Funeral Director’s Association Funeral Director of the Year.

Today, daughter Anita White has joined the staff, making it four generations of Whites serving area residents in need.

The Springtown home is located at 401 North Main Street, four blocks off the intersections of State Highways 199 and 51.

They encourage everyone to “please stop in and see our newly remodeled facilities.”

The home is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with phones answered 24 hours daily to arrange an appointment.

For more information, call them at 817-220-7111 or visit whitesfuneral.com.

School students – Sara Al-vis, Shayna Johnson, Rayanna Havens, and Cody Presson – competed at the Business Pro-fessionals of America (BPA) Texas State Leadership Confer-ence in Houston on March 5-8.

Johnson placed third in the Keyboarding Production Con-test and qualified to advance to the National Leadership Confer-ence competition in Indianapo-lis, Indiana April 30 - May 4.

Over 1,500 students from across Texas attended the State Leadership Conference to compete in a variety of cat-egories including legal office

procedures, financial math and analysis concept, presentation management, and extempora-neous speech.

The purpose of these compe-titions is to foster practical ap-plication of business education skills.

The goal of BPA is to devel-op leadership abilities through participation in career and tech-nical education as well as civic, recreational, and social activi-ties.

The organization also aims to assist students in establishing realistic employment objec-tives and to promote high stan-dards in ethics, workmanship, and scholarship.

By Natalie GeNtryYoung artists from Spring-

town High School (SHS) and Springtown Intermediate School (SIS) have joined forces to paint a student-created mural in the indoor archery range at SIS.

“The whole project came about as a result of the creation of SIS Archery Club,” said SIS art teacher, Sharon Buell.

The district found a new use for a dirty old storage room by converting it into an indoor ar-chery range.

“The only problem was that it looked really bad,” Buell said.

“Coach Andy Allen asked me if there was a way for my sixth grade art classes to maybe paint a mural on the nasty gray walls.”

Buell discussed the idea with SHS art teacher Shannon John-son, while they were at an art convention.

And so the collaborative project between the schools was born.

“We came up with the idea that some of the high school art students could plan and draw the mural, and the sixth graders could paint it,” Buell said. “The students were eager partners.”

Johnson said, “I have several students who have been inter-ested in helping with the mural. Four of them have been over there, had some great ideas, and finished some drawings on the mural for the younger kids to color.”

The SHS students go by the archery range after school to sketch out parts of the mural.

“My sixth graders are really enjoying painting on such an exciting canvas,” Buell said.

The SIS students keep old “painting” clothes in the class-room and are ready to paint on a moment’s notice.

Many families have even helped with the expenses of a project this size by donating

brushes, rollers, and paint trays.SIS Principal Joe Brown

helped combine the project with ongoing art instruction by sup-plying paints in basic colors.

This limited color selection requires the students to mix and learn first-hand how various shades of colors can be made.

Brown said, “The area we are using for our archery range had previously been a large stor-age area and was not a very at-tractive space, so when our art teacher Mrs. Buell, and Coach Allen came to me with the idea of painting a mural, I thought it was a great idea.”

“It’s fun to see their excite-ment build,” Buell said.

The artists started out ba-sically painting all day on Wednesdays.

Now they have unofficially formed the 7:30 Club.

“We meet and paint most mornings before school starts and many students come into the archery room to paint at lunchtime,” Buell said.

by MARK K. cAMPbeLLOne day of the POJO Relays

was nice and the next not as nice.

But hometown athletes and visitors alike tore up the event, setting several meet records March 21-22.

While the boys varsity was on the way to winning its event, four Springtown athletes set new POJO Relays records:

• Dillon Springfield – 110-meter hurdles (14.95 sec-onds) and 300 hurdles (39.54)

• Benji Brokenshire – pole vault (14 feet, 6 inches, raising his own record by an inch)

• Chanse Lee – long jump (21-3.75)

• Kolyn Waldrop – discus (164-3)

Lee and Waldrop shone, yet despite their exceptional ef-forts, they did not win gold medals as Springfield and Bro-kenshire did. Lee and Waldrop took silvers.

The long jump pit saw sever-al POJO Relays marks tumble.

In the boys competition, Nicolas Foster of Keller Fos-sil Ridge set the new distance leap at 22-6. The bronze win-ner, Biren Clardy of Mineral Wells sailed 21-2.5, also farther than the previous relay record of 21-1.5 by a Brewer jumper in 2011.

In the girls varsity long jump, the old mark was 17-2.5 by a Brewer girl in 2011.


SHS 2-2 as end of 1st round of 6-3A play nearsSpringtown High School’s

softball team stayed at .500 in district play.

First came a 10-0 victory over Lake Worth in a game highlighted by a no-hitter from star starter Kelsey Huff.

Meanwhile, SHS scored six runs in the third inning at home to send the Lady Frogs pack-ing.

A 10-3 loss on the road March 25 at Mineral Wells followed.

Coach Amy Balke said four Lady Porcupines collected hits: Gabby Casanova, Kaitlyn Hill, Jasmine Ricks,and Mary Anne Sayles.

The Lady Rams scored five runs early, in the first inning.

Springtown got one back in the second and two more in the sixth but the deficit was too great.

The first round of 6-3A play ends Friday at home against Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jar-vis.

In the second round of dis-trict action, the Lady Porcu-pines will travel three times out of five games: to Kennedale, Lake Worth, and Diamond Hill.

First-year Porcupine baseball coach Stan Gideon got his ini-tial 6-3A win when Springtown (8-10, 1-2) defeated Lake Worth March 21, 6-4.

Immedi -ately after the Bullfrog game, SHS traveled to S t e p h e n -ville for a non-district game and lost 12-0.

Back in 6-3A play March 25 at Miner-al Wells, the Rams topped the Porcupines 5-1.

Mineral Wells and Kennedale share the top spot in the district standings at 3-0.

Castleberry sits at 2-1 – the same Lions club that SHS led 4-1 entering the fifth inning back on March 18 before the

River Oaks team rallied.Springtown is 1-2 while Lake

Worth and Diamond Hill-Jarvis are tied in the cellar at 0-3.

E v e r y remaining game for the Porcu-pines is a district af-fair.

S H S hosts Dia-mond Hill on March 28 then fac-es powerful

Kennedale on April 4 to end the first round of 6-3A play.

Junior varsity – The Porcu-pine JV has put up a shining 11-3 record so far this season.

That mark includes a per-fect 4-0 record in district play including thwarting a Mineral Wells rally and beating the Rams 4-3 March 25.

District 6-3A StandingsKennedale 3-0Mineral Wells 3-0Castleberry 2-1Springtown 1-2Diamond Hill-Jarvis 0-3Lake Worth 0-3

Springtown High School golfers began district play.

The boys sat in third place af-ter the first round of action with a tally of 440.

Trey Skaggs paced SHS with a score of 95.

Next came Cody Croft (113), Tyler Plato and Jerry Lilo (116), and Brawner (137).

The girls were led by Abbi Hatton’s 112.

She was followed by Ra-chael Rayford (115), Kaylon Cremeen (122), Michala Ro-driguez (134), and Jimmie Gee (143) for a total of 483.

Earlier, the teams played at Cross Timbers GC in Azle.

The boys shot a 415 – Croft (94), Lilo (100), Aiden Feder (102), Logan Lackey (119), and Connor Kelley (129).

The girls fired a 492 – Hatton (103), Rayford (129), Gee and Cremeen (130), and Rodriguez (133).

That was passed three times – by Markia Sanders of Sagi-naw (18-0.25); Tatyana Flanni-gan of Fossil Ridge (17-11.5), and Tiffany Roberts (17-4.5), also from Fossil Ridge.

Other non-SHS athletes set new records, too.

Mineral Wells high jumper Rascellis Williams’ 6-7 leap broke an old Wichita Falls Hirschi mark by three inches.

Boyd’s Dalton Stidham sped to a 40.75 in the 110 hurdles but was second to Springtown’s Springfield.

Waldrop finished second in the discus to Mike Freeze of Graham whose 166-3 hurl

broke a prior mark of 159-1 by a Haltom thrower last year.

The boys varsity easily out-pointed Boyd and eight other visiting schools.

Mateo Herrera again was un-touchable in the 400, winning this time in a smoking 52.77.

He also ran the third leg of the gold-winning 4x400 relay behind Ricardo Reynoso and Lee and ahead of Springfield.

The latter was untouchable in the hurdle races.

He won the 110 event by al-most half a second – 14.95 to 15.32 – en route to the new POJO Relays mark.

Graham’s Ben Davis, now a future TCU quarterback, held the previous fastest meet record

The Springtown High School tennis teams competed in split squad action.

In Glen Rose, SHS took the first place plaque in the Dick Conte Invitational March 21.

Half of SHS’ 14 athletes won medals there:

• Amanda Glover – 1st, girls singles

• Parker DeLano-Rayana Ha-vens – 2nd, girls doubles

• Jacob Matthews-Garrison Trichel – 3rd, boys doubles

• J Hicks-Peter Schneider – boys double consolation champs

Also collecting wins on the

day were Tanner Morgan and Lauren Brouhard-Kirsten Mc-Donald.

Glover has won 5-of-6 sin-gles matches this season, coach Ron Elston noted.

Matthews and Trichel are both “fast rising” freshmen.

Former wrestler Schneider has earned the nickname “All Day and All Nighter” for “re-lentless practice regimens,” the coach said.

Other Springtown athletes ventured to the McLeland Ten-nis Center in Fort Worth.

There, Justin Minter finished fourth in boys singles.

Amber Benton was also fourth, in girls singles.

Savannah Sutton and Kolyn Waldrop teamed up in mixed doubles and took fourth.

Coleman White was a boys singles quarterfinalist as was the combo of Hayden Nettle-ton-Dylan Ray in boys doubles and Michelle Padilla in girls singles.

Caleb Whiteman-Chandler Wright were consolation final-ists in mixed play.

Johnathan Chandler reached the consolation finals, too.

Tyler Cantrell-Luis Martinez picked up a victory at TCU.

n SHS, FROM PAGE 6A. at 15.2.Springfield slipped under 40

seconds in his definitive victory in the 300; he held the old mark at 41.2.

Brokenshire, a two-time state visitor, was not challenged at the pole vault pit, winning by a foot.

The varsity girls were again led by Savannah Sutton.

She won the triple jump by five inches. POJO Relays re-cord holder Kendyl Dean fin-ished third.

Sutton won the 100-meter dash then ran opening legs of the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.

Springtown will host the dis-trict meet April 9-10 at Porcu-pine Stadium.

I thought this was for kids to have fun and learn to play volleyball.

Apparently some parents think it’s all about winning and stacking all of the better playing girls on one team so that they can prepare for seventh grade. That is what is being done this season.

According to the rules that were ex-plained to the coaches: A coach can

As Mary moved into the later stages of her life, it’s clear she refused to let her poor health keep her from tend-ing to the needs of her

family and friends. Always suffering from constant pain, she went about her life with an unwavering faith in God, a strong love and commitment to her husband and children, and a genuine desire to ease the pain and discomfort of those around her – even when their was seldom any relief for her own physical suffering.

“During her idle time after the Civil War, which was rare, Arlington was foremost in her mind and she won-dered if she would ever get to see her childhood home again.

“The main difficulty Mary expe-rienced while her husband was off fighting in the War with Mexico was the task of solely caring for all her children; however, the fact that they were back at Arlington made the task a bit easier. After the war, Mary was excited to learn Robert's next post was West Point; a blessing that meant the Lees would be close to Custis who was

now in his second year at the academy.“They were no sooner settled in

their quarters in New York that Mary received word that her mother was dy-ing. She immediately left for Arling-ton but didn’t arrive in time to bid her mother goodbye. Her mother’s pass-ing left her father in deep mourning and Mary knew he was in no condi-tion to see to the funeral arrangements and as she had so often done in the past, she squared her shoulders and took the heavy burden upon herself. She became a pillar of strength as the household fell apart. She was now the new Lady of Arlington.

“Shortly after the funeral, Mary returned to West Point where she be-came popular among the cadets who enjoyed her doting and motherly af-fection. Some of the students she grew fond of included: Jeb Stuart, John Pe-gram, and Otis Howard. In 1854, she was pleased when Custis graduated first in his class from West Point.

“By this time, Rooney was attend-ing Harvard College, having failed to receive an appointment to West Point. No sooner had Mary fallen into a comfortable routine, the family

was uprooted once again as Robert ac-cepted a field command in Texas. He dutifully es-corted his family back to Arlington and prior to his depar-ture, Mary's father pre-sented him with George W a s h i n g -ton's service sword. It was during that visit that Robert noted the disarray of the Ar-lington finances and worked tirelessly to bring order to the books in the short amount of time he had before report-ing to Texas.

“When it was time for him to leave, he turned the task over to Mary and later wrote to her concerning her addi-tional duties: ‘As regards your house-hold arrangements & what concerns your father's comfort & welfare, as

well as your own, you must yourself act & not rely on him or wait on me.’ Not only was she raising the children and overseeing the household, she was now responsible for the finances of Arlington, as well as all of the other properties her father owned.

“During that year, Mary's health de-teriorated and she suffered more bouts of swelling, stiffness and pain. Walk-ing became difficult and climbing the steps near impossible. Much of the time she was confined to her bed. But although her health was failing, she kept up current events, especially pol-itics – it was an election year. Many topics were being debated, especially concerning slavery. She was still op-posed to the institution, a view that was in disagreement with her husband which is evident in a letter he penned to her in December of that year: ‘…The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, so-cially & physically. The painful disci-pline they are undergoing is necessary for their instructions as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to bet-ter things…’

“Mary made a difficult journey to

the springs in Berkley hoping to find some relief from her pain and suffer-ing. When she returned to Arlington, she found her father had taken quite ill. They had a few days together before he died on October 10 with Mary at his bedside. Robert immedi-ately asked for, and was granted, two months leave to oversee his father-in-law's estate. While Robert grappled with finances that included decades of poor financial decisions and poor re-cord keeping, Mary, having stumbled upon her father's memoirs of his days growing up at Mount Vernon, orga-nized the papers and arranged them into a book. Her crippling disease made the task difficult and painful, but she was persistent.

“In 1859, she completed the project and it was published shortly thereaf-ter under the title Recollections and Private Memoirs of Washington, by his Adopted Son George Washington Parke Custis, with a Memoir of this Author by his Daughter. It received favorable reviews.”

When I was a young buck, I had vi-sions of being a chick magnet. Now, I didn’t use that terminol-

ogy because it hadn’t been invented yet. We had chicks, of course, and we had magnets, but we had not put those together in a phrase that means “he attracts all the girls.” The girls I attracted were either in elementary school or in the senior adult Sun-day School class, which doesn’t do a lot for your teen heartthrob image, but really does make you feel good and enhances your image as a really nice guy. Thirty years ago, I attract-ed the chick now known as Mrs. Sweetie, so it all worked out great.

Yesterday after church and lunch, we were head-ed home with visions of a Sunday nap dancing in our heads. Mrs. Sweetie was driving. Fewer than five miles from our house, a kamikaze deer decided that it must cross the road at that precise moment or it would be late for a very important date. As I said something to the effect of, “No, you stupid deer,” Mrs. Sweetie tried to slow enough to avoid it without swerv-ing off the road. She missed missing it by about two feet. A solid impact on the front driver’s side bumper sent the deer tumbling. As my Mrs. pulled over to the shoulder, I looked back to see if the deer had landed in the road.

I turned just in time to see the car behind us hit the second deer.

To make a long story short, we end-ed up with two dented cars and two apparently bruised deer that disap-peared into the trees and got to their appointment with quite a story to tell.

Several months ago, while driving late on a rainy night, Mrs. Sweetie had to straddle a deer carcass on the road. Her van is really low to the ground and it was quite an impact. While re-

covering from the shock of the impact and trying to get pulled over, she didn’t see a red light. To make a long story short, she got a ticket for the red light, but it was dismissed a week later when the police chief heard about the circumstances.

Life is full of adventures. Some good and some…not so much. There is something about knowing that God is with us on the journey that helps keep it in perspective. “I am with you always.” (Jesus, Mat-

thew 28:20). Our lives matter so much to God that He does not want us to travel solo. When we choose to fol-low Christ, He not only accompanies us, He leads us on the adventure. The path is not always smooth, but as Cor-rie ten Boom said, “When God leads us on rocky paths, He gives us strong shoes.”

I told Mrs. Sweetie that she is obvi-ously a deer magnet. And then I told her that’s how she got me. I’m not sure what she meant when she said, “Yes, dear.”

No, my Deer!

Mark K. Campbell

Mark K. Campbell is the Epigraph editor and once dared to take a Living Bible to Sunday


Uh-oh. I clearly had chugged too much sweet tea and the church small group meeting was just be-ginning.

This was nothing new; church folk bring food and drink and it gets con-sumed at very unbiblical paces at times. I am highly skilled at this.

The 22-minute DVD lesson began. It was about Joseph and forgiving or something like that, but I had more pressing concerns.

It’s always bad form to just get up in the middle of a church lesson, even if Max Lucado is lecturing from a TV screen.

Another problem was that I knew that there would be discussion after-ward then we’d break up into small prayer groups. More time delays...

And – always! – within this sort of piecemeal gathering there’s somebody who is a professional, Old Testament

prayer sort, full of “beseeches” and “verilys” and scads of “thees” and “thous.” They are PPPs: professional pray persons.

Some Christians are astounding at praying for “hedges of protection” and donning “armor of God” and a slew of other groovy phrases snatched from the Good Book.

Not me.In fact, I was recently chastised for

my meal prayer – which has been the same for decades.

Dear Lord:Thank You for our safety and good

fortune. Please keep watch over our family, friends, and troops. Thank You for this food. In Christ’s name, Amen.

I always felt that covered it. It’s sin-cere and honest and keeps the ham-burgers from getting cold.

(The first thing I learned in journal-ism was two words: Be Concise. Ev-erything can be shorter. [Prayers are not journalism, however. Clearly.])

My just-fine prayer, I was informed, in Christian love by the Bride, was perhaps a bit rote. Maybe I should mix it up a bit, I was informed. Per-haps try some-thing different occasionally.

I’m not a big out-loud prayer. When I was a kid in

youth groups, I prayed silently often – to not be chosen to pray aloud.

I’m fine praying verbally now, even if it’s a tad briefer than the pros.

Usually, it’s the old folks who are PPPs, the guys and gals who sit in the back of whatever gathering is go-ing on – the King-James-is-the-only-

real-Bible people – who will whip out elongated, flowery, dense praises and laments that can go on for a while.

I have no doubt that they are sincere when they bring in detailed statements concerning “discernment” for politi-cians and helping the evil biased lib-eral media “see the light”.

Then, there’s always the PPPs’ standby, the weather.

How things are going outside is al-ways a constant with the pros’ prose and their confined audience. Especial-ly rain: either appreciative for recent rains – “Verily, we thank Thou!” – or pleading for absent rain – “We beseech Thee!” (That last prayer has been go-ing on for about three years now.)

So, anyway, after Max Lucado told us on the TV to be more forgiving, we chatted for a while. I remember noth-ing. All those cups of tea...

Then came the breakout into smaller groups. Fortunately, I didn’t get the PPP. In a few minutes, all the other

groups had broken up and were mill-ing about in the hallway (I eventually joined them after taking care of busi-ness) while the PPP was on fire with a series of Old School words and phrases.

Now, there’s something kinda cool about an 80-year-old man who has been a member of the same church for 70 years intoning concerns and thanks in a Shakespearian manner. There’s a poetry there, no doubt, and Spirit led, hopefully.

But a lengthy prayer doesn’t work for all of us. Just like some of us are OK with the NIV or even – gasp! – The Message, we’re also OK with knowing that God knows our hearts and it might not be necessary to evoke every situation you can think of.

Still, if you need to whip out some “verilys” and “begots” go for it. I’ll cut back on the tea.

“protect” their daughter from being chosen for another team. The commis-sioner this year has decided to coach. She has no daughters playing in the league. But she has taken it upon herself to “coach protect” three girls whom she says are like her daughters.

Ironically these are some of the best sixth grade girls. After the draft on Sunday night, she then called my wife who is a coach as well, and wanted to “trade” my wife’s first pick because this girl’s mother might cause prob-lems if she is not on the “right” team.

If you are so worried about your

daughter being prepped for the next level, go play club ball and get profes-sional coaches. Let the rest of the girls just have fun.

Stacking one team with all of the best girls so they can win every game teaches them nothing. The commis-sioner should at least be setting the example and following the rules.

What a joke. This used to be fun for the girls; now several don’t want to play and for obvious reasons coaches now don’t want to coach. Randy Harris Springtown

The Texas Depart-ment of Public Safety on March 18 announced the creation of the Texas Crimes

Against Children Center within the agency’s Texas Rangers Di-vision.

The stated goal is to protect children through the collec-tion and dissemination of vi-tal intelligence, investigative support and cooperation with victim-assistance counselors by “providing support to local, state and federal partners on investigations related to miss-ing and exploited children, the trafficking of children, child abductions and other high-risk threats to children.”

“The exploitation and hu-man trafficking of children is a deplorable crime and it is criti-cal that we use all available re-sources to keep them safe,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw.

Flu season isn’t overFor the week ending March 8,

the Department of State Health

Services on March 14 reported the presence of “influenza-like illness or institutional out-breaks in at least two but less than half the regions of the state with recent laboratory evidence of influenza in those regions.”

And although “influenza lab-oratory data and influenza-like illness indicators have demon-strated a consistent decrease for the last several weeks,” in-fluenza-like illness intensity “is still elevated throughout Texas” and 14 pediatric flu deaths have been confirmed in Texas this season.

The state health department punctuated its report by encour-aging “everyone six months old and older to get a dose of flu vaccine” for this season’s par-ticular strains.

Drought declaration lives onGov. Rick Perry on March 14

renewed an Emergency Disas-ter Proclamation he originally issued on July 5, 2011, certi-fying that exceptional drought conditions posed a threat of imminent disaster in specified

counties in Texas.The 30-day renewal applies

to 143 or Texas’ 254 counties, and suspends “all rules and regulations that may inhibit or prevent prompt response to this threat.”

Barry Corbin is front and center in a new 30-second Tex-as Veterans Land Board public service announcement that be-gan airing March 17 in targeted broadcasts, announced Land Commissioner Jerry Patter-son, who oversees the Veterans Land Board.

Corbin, a Lamesa native who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, played roles in such films as War Games, Urban Cowboy, and No Country for Old Men, in television shows such as Northern Exposure and in the 1989 TV mini-series Lonesome Dove.

In the part of the announce-ment, Corbin says, “Right now, if you’re a Texas veteran or a member of the military,

the VLB has low-i n t e r e s t l o a n s up to $100,000 with only 5 percent d o w n . This is a great deal, just for veter-ans.”

Inter im charges are made

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who presides over the Sen-ate, announced items for four standing committees to study and report on before the 2015 Legislature.

The Senate Committee on Health and Human Services is to: Evaluate prescription drug abuse and strategies for reduc-ing it; monitor initiatives to im-prove the quality and efficiency of Medicaid; monitor fraud, waste and abuse in Medicaid

and other health and human services programs; monitor the State Board of Dental Ex-aminers’ ability to respond to complaints and reports of po-tential fraudulent activity; and monitor efforts to increase the transparency of the Cancer Pre-vention and Research Institute of Texas.

For the Senate Committee on Jurisprudence, charges include monitoring: (a) the implemen-tation of laws passed in 2013 regarding criminal procedures related to children who commit certain Class C misdemeanors; (b) the prosecution of certain misdemeanor offenses commit-ted by children and to school district law enforcement; and (c) the state’s new electronic, digitized court filing system.

The Senate Committee on Open Government is to “review the Texas Public Information Act to ensure that access to pub-lic records and information by the public remains fully trans-parent, but that governmental entities have the authority to protect the privacy interests of

citizens, including primary and higher education students, from improper public disclosure.” The committee also will review and make recommendations on improving the transparency of information available on state websites regarding state expen-ditures, reports and contracts, including a comparison of how similar information is provided by other states.

The Senate Committee on Transportation is to evaluate comprehensive development agreements and design/build project delivery methods and make recommendations. The panel also is to examine the implementation of law passed in 2013 to provide “remedies for habitual violators of non-payment of tolls” and “make recommendations for any leg-islation needed to improve, en-hance, and/or complete imple-mentation.”

Alas, here’s another sequel that sadly lives up to the Sec-ond Movie Theory: the prede-cessor is usually better.

While the Movie Man wasn’t blown away by the Muppets re-turn in 2011 (Movie Man No. 958, a 6), this new one, the se-quel, is certainly a lesser effort.

About the fi lmMuppets’ history goes way

back – from early appearances on TV’s Sesame Street to the puppets shooting to the top of the pop culture zeitgeist in the 1970’s in a TV show that every major star of the day scrambled to be on.

Movies followed, but, like plenty of fads through the years, the Muppet bloom faded.

Then, a generation that grew up on the critters began harken-ing back nostalgically like all generations do. And there stood those happy, slightly wonky Muppets. Thirty-four-year old Jason Segal was one of those kids who watched the TV show as a boy. He was the primary im-petus for the big screen revival.

The rebirthed Muppets also clung to their low-rent Broad-way song and dance numbers. That ’11 movie even won an Academy Award for Best Orig-inal Song with the witty “Man or Muppet.” Of course, it only had to beat out one tune, from the animated movie Rio (2011, MM #926, 4).

Once there was a time when Best Song was a major battle, an era when a movie’s theme song was often a major pop hit.

For many stretches of con-secutive years, every Oscar winner for Best Original Song was also a big radio hit.

From 1969-73: “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969, B.J. Thomas, No. 1 on the charts; “For All We Know” from Lovers and Other Strang-ers, 1970, the Carpenters, No. 3; “Theme from Shaft,” 1971, Isaac Hayes, No. 1; “The Morning Af-ter,” from The Poseidon Adven-ture, 1972, Maureen McGovern,

No. 1; and “The Way We Were” from The Way We Were, 1973, Barbra Streisand.

An even more awesome stretch came in 1980-87: “Fame” from Fame, 1980, Irene Cara, No. 4; “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” from Arthur, 1981, Christopher Cross, No. 1; “Up Where We Belong” from An Offi cer and a Gentleman, 1982, Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes, No. 1; “Flash-dance…What a Feeling: from Flashdance, 1983, Irene Cara, No. 1; “I Just Called to Say I Love You” from The Woman in Red, 1984, Stevie Wonder, No. 1; “Say You, Say Me” from White Nights, 1985, Lionel Richie, No. 1; “Take My Breath Away” from Top Gun, 1986, Berlin, No. 1; and “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing, 1987, Bill Med-ley & Jennifer Warnes, No. 1.

Today, few major songs from movies are hits, even though the most recent Best Song win-ner, “Let It Go” from Frozen, is an exception.

The plotThe Muppets, fresh off their

2011 movie, are encouraged to go on a world tour under the auspices of promoter Dominic (Ricky Gervais). But he plans on teaming up with evil Con-stantine – a dead ringer for Ker-

mit the Frog – and pulling off a great heist.

Kermit gets arrested and sent to a Russian gulag overseen by Nadya (Tina Fey). His place in the Muppets’ troupe is taken by Constantine as the puppets tour foreign cities.

Gervais and Constantine must collect hidden artifacts – a paint-ing, a key, and a locket – before they can rob the Tower of Lon-don. So the Muppets “tour” a few major capitals where the evil duo gathers the items.

Only a couple of Muppets suspect Kermit’s been replaced. Eventually, the real Kermit is rescued and the bad guys are thwarted with minor help from a French detective (Ty Burrell) and Muppet Sam the Eagle.

What worksThere are a few cute mo-

ments, like seeing Christoph Waltz waltz with a giant Mup-pet or seeing Kermit/Constan-tine standing on Gervais’ head.

The only memorable song is a near-dead-on 70’s soul mimic called “I’ll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu).” But it’s not really “Best Song” worthy.

The fi nal shot of the movie has some of that sly Muppet humor that is so missing in the rest of the movie.

Best sceneA voice from a metallic soli-

tary confi nement area sings out

occasionally in the Russian gu-lag. When Kermit organizes a criminal talent show, the owner of that captive voice is fi nally revealed…briefl y. It’s pretty funny – and from a guy who is proving to be a master of dash-ing his own ego.

What doesn’t workWow, Most Wanted is really

not very funny. For every stray chuckle – Fey walks down the line of locked-down prisoners’ cells saying good night to each off camera, “Killer” and “Scar,” then eventually says “Danny Trejo” an actor in the movie’s actual name – almost 99 per-cent die. They’re not wincingly unfunny bad, just bad.

The plot is a rehash from an earlier Muppet movie and that’s OK, but Most Wanted is terribly slow and uneven. It looks hur-ried and just thrown together.

Worst of all is the songs. It seems like there are a hundred and all but one is either imme-diately forgettable or too unin-telligible. Even attempts at be-ing self-aware in a hipster sort of way fails when the fi rst song addresses the fact that sequels are always worse than the origi-nals.

Even the stinger – the post-end credits bit – is nothing

worth staying for.

The ratingThere is nothing offensive

here; it’s a “PG” for rude hu-mor, but there’s very little of it.

Summing upMuppets Most Wanted is al-

most two hours long and it feels like much more. The audience with the Movie Man was nearly dead quiet the entire movie – even the kids got seat-bouncing bored.

Next upNoah.

Spring Approaches

It’s been slow going, but, after a winter that re-fuses to exit, spring is fi-nally arriving. Peach trees (above) are blossoming, something bees appreci-ate (left). Bluebonnets (far left), the true harbinger of Texas spring, are finally getting their chance to shine here in the north-ern part of the state. Also in action are springtime birds, including red-head-ed woodpeckers (upper left), bluebirds, and our state bird, the mocking-bird.

All Parker County residents are encouraged to clean up their personal property and, if possi-ble, form neighborhood groups now to tidy up and mow road-sides and public areas, and as-sist disabled persons in clean-ing around their homes.

The cleanup can be seen as an opportunity to meet neigh-bors and enhance the forma-tion of networks throughout the county, which can actively sup-

port a number of worthwhile projects from crime watch to helping neighbors in need.

Cleanup day is for private citizens, not commercial dis-posal.

Residents are required to bring some form of proof of residency, as the cleanup is for Parker County residents only.

Commissioners’ precinct barns will have areas or recep-tacles designated for the fol-lowing items:

• aluminum, iron, glass etc.• newspapers, cardboard• tires (rims removed)

• furniture/appliances• dried paint cans• lumber, limbs and brush• batteries, oil fi lters, and oilNo fl ammable liquids, shin-

gles, paint, or chemicals will be accepted.

As a courtesy to workers, sepa-rate items and bag securely to speed unloading and reduce labor.

They will not unload loose garbage.

All Parker County residents may go to the closest collec-tion site. Directions to precinct barns:

Precinct 1 (Commissioner

George Conley, 817-220-7218) – 3000 Veal Station Road, south of Springtown
