BY NATALIE GENTRYThe Saturday many Springtown

area kids have been waiting for is fast approaching – the day they can fi nally enjoy a wet and wild time in Spring-town’s new SplashPad.

The shiny new facility opens at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 24.

Future facility hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m.-6 p.m.

Made to lastThe six-inch-thick concrete Splash-

Pad is covered in a rubberized “Tough Coat” in shades of watery blue with bursts of red throughout.

Fixed to the slab are 34 ground spray nozzles and 12 water elements including water cannons, palm tree and mushroom shaped fountains, a rainbow misting arch, and the tower-

ing Springtown water bucket.All of the stainless steel elements

are powder coated in vibrant colors and include heavy rubber toe guard to prevent stubbed digits.

Caps are installed over the ground sprays so they can be fi tted with new elements as the park expands.

All told, the SplashPad provides 46 ways for kids to drench themselves in two circular bays.

The design of the pad divides the water elements into sections geared toward different age groups.

The smaller circle is confi gured for toddlers and children wanting a gen-tler SplashPad experience.

The larger bay is for older kids look-ing for varied and exciting water play.

The SplashPad is located by the Wal-

Johnson indicted now on federal hate crime charges

BY NATALIE GENTRYBrice Johnson, 19, of Springtown was accused of se-

verely beating a gay man last September and has now been indicted on federal hate crime charges.

A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Johnson on May 14 for charges of kidnapping and “willful-ly causing bodily injury to a person because of the actual or perceived sexual orientation of that person,” according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s offi ce.

The indictment was returned in federal court in Fort Worth.

Prosecutors said the case began on Sept. 2, 2013, when Aaron Kea-hey, a gay man, met Johnson via the cell phone social application

Although Johnson’s profi le page said he was not gay, Johnson told Ke-ahey “he was interested in engaging in sexual activity” and they arranged to meet.

According to the press release, when Keahey arrived at Johnson’s house, Johnson “severely beat him” and put him in the trunk of his own car.

When other individuals warned Johnson to take Keahey to a hospital or they would call po-lice, Johnson drove Keahey to an emergency medical ser-vices station in Springtown.

Keahey was hospitalized for the following 10 days at Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth for multiple skull and facial fractures.

Johnson eventually told federal authorities he was play-ing a prank on Keahey because of his sexual orientation

and that it was a “joke that went too far and wrong.

“The investigation revealed that on the night of the incident, Johnson saved [Keahey’s] cell phone number using a gay slur as a contact name,” the press release reads. “Johnson later stated that he was playing a prank on [Keahey] because of [Keahey’s] sex-ual orientation, again using a gay slur when referring to [Keahey.]

According to the affi davit, Keahey said that he had no physical contact with Johnson prior to the attack.

The investigation is being conduct-ed by the FBI, the Springtown Police Department, and the Parker County Sheriff’s Offi ce.

The case is being prosecuted by As-sistant U.S. Attorney Cara Foos Pierce and Trial Attorney Saeed Mody of the Civil Rights Division.

An indictment merely establishes probable cause and Johnson is pre-

sumed innocent unless proven guilty. If convicted, Johnson faces a maximum statutory sen-

tence of life in prison and a $250,000 fi ne.

Hwy. 199 motorcycle mishap claims manBY CARLA NOAH STUTSMANOne man was killed around 9:30

a.m. Wednesday morning, May 21, in an accident involving a motorcycle in the 1600 block of Northwest Parkway (also called SH 199) in front of All-sup’s Convenience Store.

According to Trooper Sgt. Lonny Haschel of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the man’s iden-tity was unknown as of press time the same afternoon.

Haschel said a man driving a southbound 1996 Honda Accord had stopped at the stop sign on Ashwood Street. The man intended to cross the westbound lanes of SH 199 into the crossover before heading east into Azle.

The man told DPS troopers at the scene he saw three motorcycles west-bound on SH 199 and waited for them all to pass before he pulled out to cross the westbound lanes.

But there were four motorcycles.The fourth bike, a 2001 Harley Da-

vidson, collided with the driver’s door of the Honda.

Its rider was thrown from the bike and the victim landed on the pavement in the crossover.

The unidentifi ed man was pro-nounced deceased at the scene.

The three other riders, as well as the driver of the Honda, were visibly shaken on the roadside.

The accident remained under inves-tigation at press time.

Wheels on the busSISD bus drivers create art to

express pride in their jobs

BY NATALIE GENTRYEvery school day, bus drivers for the

Springtown Independent School Dis-trict (SISD) are entrusted with safely transporting students to and from the schools.

Regardless of the weather, light-ing, or traffi c conditions, SISD drivers are required to transports students, so their performance on the road is criti-cally important.

With the district spanning approxi-mately 100 square miles, SISD buses have traveled over 350,000 miles dur-ing the 2013-14 year alone.

Expressions of prideDrivers have begun expressing

their devotion to the district through a series of colorfully expressive buses drawn on tables in the staff room.

“Every driver has their own bus,”

said Shirley Knight, one of the driv-ers. “It started back in October, I just doodled a bus on the table, and it just took off.

“Then someone saw Wendy’s [An-derson] talent and said ‘I want her to

draw mine’ and it grew.” Knight con-tinued.

The table now also includes an American fl ag and an eagle that has the names of employees in the depart-ment who are veterans of the military.

“It’s just wonderful,” Knight said. “We should honor these people and their service.”

It was a common sentiment in the

Splishin’ and Splashin’

A young man from Springtown has graduated from Navy basic training.

Navy Seaman Jesse R. Martinez, son of Bobby G. Martinez Sr. and brother of Bobby G. Martinez Jr. of Springtown, and son of Lianne M. Martinez of Grand Prairie, recently completed naval training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois.

During the eight-week program, Martinez completed a vari-ety of instruction which included classroom study and practical teaching on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety.

An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This ex-

ercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to suc-ceed in the fleet.

“Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior at-tributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Garden of Hope Dedication

SISD bus drivers express pride in jobsstaff room that the little buses on the table show that the driv-

ers’ dedication to the job and the district is about more than a paycheck.

“It goes beyond just a job; it’s a love and a dedication,” Knight said. “And Wendy has done a lot of work here.”

Here to stayIn addition to the ‘bus table’ the dedication of the employees

in the transportation department could be seen at the personnel awards when three received their fi ve-year pins, one received her 10-year pin, one received his 15-year pin, and three employees received 20-year pins.

Bus table artist Wendy Anderson was recognized this year as the Property Casualty Alliance of Texas (PCAT) honored her as the SISD bus driver of the year.

SISD Director of Transportation Shane Strickland presented her award and an embroidered jacket in recognition of this accomplishment.

Anderson’s bus monitor, Linda Autry, received recognition for her work as well.

What it takesThe fi rst district employee the children see in the morning and

the last they see in the afternoon, SISD bus drivers help to set the tone for many of the students’ days.

Strickland commented on the type of person it takes to drive a school bus.

“There are not many people in this world who want to or can get on a bus and drive safely with 30-60 students on it,” he said. “I know it’s diffi cult enough to not be distracted with just my own children in the car.

“Our bus drivers are specially ‘called’ individuals that I admire greatly and I feel blessed to be able to work with,” Strickland continued.

He also pointed out that during his tenure the transportation department has maintained 98 percent of the employees – an ex-tremely low turnover rate in the profession.

EditorMark K. Campbell

In 1760 Anthony Bledsoe mar-ried Mary Ramsey, of Au-gusta County, and soon af-terwards removed to his new home on the frontier. The ex-act location of his settlement

is in doubt. “He located 700 acres of land

on the waters of the Holston River, where he built his fort, about thirty miles east from Long Island, on the Fort Chiswell road, near the line of Virginia. During the pioneer period all the settlers located contiguous to the larger water courses, and it is probable that Anthony Bledsoe was not an exception to that rule.

“In 1776, when the Legislature of Virginia passed a law with reference to the distribution of salt among the settlements of the southwestern fron-tier, commissioners were appointed to take a list of the tithables. Among others we find William Edmiston was appointed to do this work from Stalnacker's to Black's Fort, which was located where Abingdon now

is, on the south fork of Wolf Creek. James Montgomery was appointed to the work from Black's Fort to Major Bledsoe's. John Anderson's duties extended from Major Bledsoe's as low down as there were settlers. It is not probable that the duties of any of these assessors required them to cross the mountain ridges, but, instead, that they followed the courses of the streams where the settlements were.

“Thus Edmiston's territory ex-tended from Abingdon down Wolf Creek to Black's Fort, probably the place where that stream empties its waters into South Fork of Holston. From there James Montgomery was assigned to do the work down the Holston to Major Bledsoe’s, which was on the Virginia line, about the mouth of Spring Creek, some ten miles east from the present town of Bristol. Haywood says that Colonel Bledsoe extended the line of the State as far west as Beaver Creek, (at Bris-tol).

“In the fall of 1781 Colonel An-

thony Bledsoe removed with his family to what is now Sumner Coun-ty, Tennessee, and there, two miles north from Bled-soe's Lick, located 6,280 acres of land, giving to the place the name “Greenfield.” The tract has been divided

into a number of splendid farms. Not one acre of it belongs to any member of the family of the original owner.

“Next to James Robertson, Colo-nel Bledsoe was the most valuable member of the Cumberland settle-ment. He was a man of education, of cool courage, sound judgment and of wide experience in public affairs, having held various civil and military

positions in the older settlements. His relations with John Sevier, Governor Caswell and other prominent men, were of an intimate character. For many years he was the bosom friend and trusted counselor of James Rob-ertson, who after Bledsoe's arrival in the Cumberland country, acted in no affair of importance without his advice and cooperation. In the event of Robertson's death, he was prob-ably the only man who could have brought the settlements safely out of the ordeal through which they were passing.

“On October 6, 1783, the County Court of Davidson County, was in-stituted. Anthony Bledsoe, Daniel Smith, James Robertson, Isaac Bled-soe, Samuel Barton, Thomas Mulloy, Francis Prince and Isaac Lindsey constituted the court.

“Anthony Bledsoe was elected Colonel of the Davidson County Mi-litia. In 1782 Anthony Bledsoe, Isaac Shelby and Absalom Tatum were ap-pointed commissioners to select and

layoff a tract or tracts of land suffi-cient to meet the grants which North Carolina had made to the officers and soldiers of the Revolutionary War.

“Early in 1783 these commission-ers met at Nashborough, and entered upon their duties. The line which they ran was styled the “Commis-sioners line.” It began at a point near where Elk River crosses the southern boundary, and which has since been called “Latitude Hill.” The com-mission laid off, near Columbia, a tract of 25,000 acres, for General Nathanie1 Greene, which had been granted by North Carolina, as a mark of the high sense of his extraordinary services in the war of the revolution. The commission was accompanied by a guard of one hundred men, each of whom received grants of land for his services.”

Grow up!

I’ve both spoken those words and had them spoken to me. Sometimes (rarely, I’m sure), it is be-

cause I might have been behaving in a slightly juvenile manner. One of my friends used to say, “Growing old is man-datory; growing up is op-tional.”

I’m pretty sure that, “Grow up!” whether aimed at me or from me, says more about the speaker than it does about the tar-get. It likely means that the speaker is irritated, in-convenienced, or maybe embarrassed by the actions of another. And it rarely re-sults in growth.

Try these out sometime: (1) Tell your grass to grow and see how it responds. (2) Tell a puppy to grow up and stop chewing your shoes and tinkling on the floor. (3) Tell a baby to grow up and stop crying. (4) Tell a middle aged preach-er/writer to grow up and stop using the word “tinkling” in public.

I had an “A-ha!” moment during my devotional reading this morn-ing. Along with my Bible, I also read through a devotional book each year. This year, it is the classic devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, by Os-wald Chambers. Here is a quote from this morning’s reading:

“So often we impair God’s designed influence, which He desires to exhibit through us, because of our own con-scious efforts to be consistent and use-ful. Jesus said there is only one way to develop and grow spiritually, and that is through focusing and concentrating on God.

“In essence, Jesus was saying, ‘Do

not worry about being of use to others; simply believe on Me.’ In other words, pay attention to the Source, and out of you ‘will flow rivers of living water’ (John 7:38). We cannot discover the source of our natural life through com-mon sense and reasoning, and Jesus is

teaching here that growth in our spiritual life comes not from focusing directly on it, but from concentrat-ing on our Father in heav-en.”

I can’t tell you how many times, as a pastor and church consultant, I have wanted to tell people to grow up and stop be-ing spiritual babies. I’ve preached those sermons and heard those sermons preached. But here’s the problem. People don’t grow physically, emotion-ally, or spiritually because

someone told them to try harder to grow. Healthy people with healthy habits will grow in all those ways, not because they are focusing on growth, but because they are focusing on a lifestyle that will result in growth.

Spiritually, that means focusing on obeying God and following Jesus… Reading the Bible and praying, not to grow, but to converse with God…Go-ing to church, not to grow, but to wor-ship God together with His people… Getting involved in various ministries, not to grow, but because we love Him and want others to know Him.

Our lives matter so much to God that He never tells us to “Grow up!” He just shows up and shows us how.

Look up, child!

Oh, grow up, ya big baby!

A girl called Zeppelin? Someone’s dazed and confused


Mark K. Campbell

Mark K. Campbell is the Epigraph editor and apparently didn’t look like a Kelvin in 1956.

Somewhere out there in America, at least five young girls are now named Shiny.

And Icy. And Skylit. And Camaro. And Zeppe-

lin. It takes a whole lotta love to name a kid Zeppelin.

This info comes from the annual most popular baby names list issued by the Social Security Office.

Unusual boys names abound, too. Like Anchor. And Vice. And Subaru. And Furious.

A household in 2020:“Furious! I said to settle down!”“Well, you did name me Furious.”“Just go get Zeppelin and get in the


“She’s over at Subaru’s house.”Other offbeat boys names include

Spartacus, Zevon, and, yes, Son. For girls, there’s Sweet, Snowy, Oakland, and, yes, Tuba. A quintet of little girls will walk around be-ing called “Tuba” until they get old enough to change it.

When the Bride and I reproduced a daughter, we were set to name her Meredith and call her Merry.

But she didn’t look like a Meredith or Merry. She looked like a Julie.

How many parents gazed into cribs and said of their newborn: “Now there’s a Chevelle!”

As you can imagine, psychologists are having a field day with parents giving their kids weird names.

Some par-ents want their offspring to stand out from the get-go. That’s why there are at least five boys in the U.S. named Boul-der and – for real! – a quin-tet of sweet lit-tle girls named “IceSis.” (Not “Isis” which would make so

much more sense; IceSis is a rapper.)Now, I’ll make full disclosure and

note that my other daughter (Hayley – we were way ahead of the Hayley craze of the late-1980’s, early ‘90’s) gave her three children names that do not show up in the top 1,000 on the Social Security list: Link, Jubilee, and Oz.

Imagine again that it’s 2020. You’re in the mall. (I assume there will still be malls then despite dire predictions otherwise; where else will be get our pretzels?)

If you shout at “Noah” to get away from the Victoria’s Secret display, about 20 kids will take off running be-cause that was the most popular name on the boys list last year.

However, if you blurt out “Rambo,” only a couple of little dudes will scur-

ry away.Names go through popularity

waves. Remember when you couldn’t swing a baby rattle without hitting a Jennifer?

Schools are thick with Emmas right now.

Until Noah broke the boys name streak this year, the world was under threat of being entirely populated by Jacobs. The last 14 years, Jacob was No. 1.

Either is better than the five boys named Alyssa. That’s enough to make a kid go all Furious Rambo on their parents.

propose a budget next year that uses all of the money in the state highway fund for transportation instead of sending chunks of it to other state agencies.

Taxes and fees such as the gas tax and fees on drivers’ li-censes go into the state high-way fund to pay for transpor-tation, but for almost 80 years, Straus explained, some of that money has helped fund agen-cies that are not directly related to transportation.

Using the state highway fund exclusively for transportation would increase funding for roads by about $1.3 billion over two years, Straus, R-San Anto-nio, added.

“This approach will make the state budget even more straightforward, just as taxpay-ers expect. It will also provide needed transportation revenue

— without a tax increase — as Texas continues to grow twice as fast as the rest of the coun-try,” Straus said.

State adds jobs in AprilTexas Workforce Commis-

sion on May 16 reported Texas employers added 64,100 jobs in April for a total of 348,000 sea-sonally adjusted non-farm jobs added over the year.

And, Texas’ unemploy-ment rate fell to 5.2 percent in April, down from 5.5 percent in March and down from 6.4 per-cent a year ago.

“April was a robust month for Texas job growth. The un-employment rate continues to fall and we posted the highest monthly job growth in well over three years,” said Texas Workforce Commission Chair-man Andres Alcantar.

In April, employment in pro-fessional and business services grew by 20,100 positions, the largest monthly increase ever recorded for that industry, and eight of the 11 major industries

in Texas experienced positive growth, the agency reported.

Panel votes to im-peach

The Texas House Select Committee on Transparency on May 12 met in closed session and voted 7-1 to impeach Univer-sity of Texas Board of Regents member Wallace L. Hall Jr. of Dallas.

A report cited during the commit-tee's open session alleges Hall, who was appointed by Gov. Rick Perry in February 2011, “abused the powers of his of-fice and may have broken the law in his campaign to force the UT Regents to vote to fire UT President Bill Powers.”

May 21 and May 22 meetings are scheduled for the commit-tee to further consider and pos-sibly take action on the issue.

Children are focus of work

Speaker Straus on May 15 announced nine appointees to the House Select Committee on Child Protection, a panel charged with study-ing abuse and ne-glect fatalities in Texas and making recommendations to protect children.

The panel will work with public members of the Pro-tect our Kids Com-mission created by the Legislature in

2013 to study the rate of child abuse and neglect fatalities and to recommend strategies to pre-vent and reduce them.

“I am confident that this com-mittee will provide meaningful recommendations to improve outcomes for Texas children,” Straus said.

State Rep. Dawnna Dukes, D-Austin, will chair the pan-el. Members include Reps. Cindy Burkett, R-Sunnyvale;

Tony Dale, R-Cedar Park; Jes-sica Farrar, D-Houston; James Frank, R-Wichita Falls; John Frullo, R-Lubbock; Bobby Guerra, D-Mission; Toni Rose, D-Dallas; and J.D. Sheffield, R-Gatesville.

Early voting period beginsTexas Secretary of State

Nandita Berry on May 15 pub-lished a reminder to voters that early voting for the May 27 Primary Runoff Election begins on May 19 and runs through May 23.

“Statewide there are a num-ber of contests in both the Republican and Democratic primary runoff elections. This election is a chance for vot-ers to select party candidates for the November 4 Election,” Berry said.

The runoff election is for races from the March 4 Pri-mary Election where no candi-dates secured a majority. The top two finishers from those races will now face each oth-er to represent their party in

the November election, Berry said.

Sales tax holiday is setState Comptroller Susan

Combs on May 12 announced the May 24 through May 26 sales tax holiday for certain energy efficient household ap-pliances.

The annual state sales tax holiday applies to “Energy Star” qualified air condition-ers priced at $6,000 or less, re-frigerators priced at $2,000 or less, ceiling fans, fluorescent light bulbs, dishwashers, dehu-midifiers and clothes washers. Clothes dryers do not qualify.

“Shoppers can save money up front by not having to pay sales tax when buying appli-ances during the holiday week-end and the energy efficient products can help reduce utility bill costs,” Combs said.

Speaker wants highway fund for transportation only



Veteran state reporter and legislative analyst Ed Sterling is member services

director for the Texas Press Association, whose 518 member newspapers have combined circulation of 3.7 million.

After 12 years, most people already know what “Click It or Ticket” is all about.

Motorists who don’t buckle up in compliance with state seatbelt laws face fines and court costs up to $200 as stepped-up enforcement gets underway this month during the Texas Department of Trans-portation’s 13th annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign that runs through June 1.

“Seatbelts save lives,” said John Barton, TxDOT deputy ex-ecutive director. “That’s a fact. Buckling up will keep you from getting a ticket, and more im-portantly, it could save your life.

“Whether you’re the driver or a passenger, everyone in the vehicle is required by law to wear a seatbelt for every trip. The cost of not using one just isn’t worth it.”

The “Click It or Ticket” cam-paign is credited with motivat-ing millions of motorists to al-ways use their seat belts.

Only 76 percent of Texans used seatbelts when the cam-paign began in 2002. Today, 9 out of 10 Texans buckle up.

The National Highway Traf-fic Safety estimates that since its inception, the “Click It or Ticket” campaign in Texas has resulted in 3,962 fewer traf-fic fatalities while preventing 66,823 serious injuries and sav-ing more than $15 billion in re-

lated economic costs. In 2013, there were 943 fatal-

ities and 5,383 serious injuries in Texas resulting from crashes in which drivers or passengers were not wearing seatbelts.

Wearing the restraint increas-es the chances of surviving a serious crash by 45 percent.

In pickup trucks, that number jumps to 60 percent as those vehicles are more likely than cars to roll over in a crash. In rollover crashes, seatbelts help keep occupants from being ejected.

Texas law requires everyone in a vehicle to be buckled up, including back seat passengers.

Good luck find-ing fans of bull nettle. Anyone who has had the misfortune of contacting

the spine-infested plant knows the pain it can induce.

But two parts of the plant are actually edible.

Seeds from the pods can be roasted. Removing and letting pods dry out allows for a rupture that releases the seeds which are about one-half inch long.

The seeds can then be toasted or ground and eaten, according to

The bull nettle tap root is ed-ible. It’s should be be roasted or boiled – but the interior of the root contains a fiber core that should be discarded.

If you get stung, a baking soda paste recommended.

Days ofFuture Past

Who doesn’t like Godzilla? Not many, judging from the fact that the groovy Japanese monster is 60 years old, has been in 40 movies, and this lat-est cinematic rendition of the creature raked in $93 million over the weekend.

Godzilla is still cool.

About the fi lmGodzilla fi rst rose from the

radioactive briny deep in 1954 in the midst of the Cold War when everyone everywhere was sure the atom bomb was about to destroy mankind.

The prehistoric behemoth stomped ashore less than a decade after the devastating bombs that destroyed Hiroshi-ma and Nagasaki to end WWII. Japanese moviegoers could re-late to their cities being demol-ished; an allegory was born.

The original movie was called Gojira. It was a mon-strous success. Preparing for an American release, Toho Studios shoehorned in an American ac-tor, Raymond Burr who would go on to play Perry Mason on TV. The plot was rejiggered into a pseudo-documentary and was called Godzilla, King of Monsters!

Godzilla was quite the ram-paging critter, but it didn’t really unleash the giant mauradering monster series, the “big bug” era that dominated the mid- to late-50’s. In 1953, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, an awakened reptilian/dinosaur monstrosity, stomped around much of the American East Coast.

However, it was Godzilla that struck the international nerve. Soon, a franchise was born. Eventually, the humongous colossus went from destroying cities to saving mankind from a slew of other gigantic beasties.

Decades of “rubber-suited monsters” battling (including Mothra and Rodan) eventually evolved into camp territory.

(However, the most terrify-ing dream the Movie Man ever had – a quarter of century old now but still disturbingly vivid

Godzilla rampages through generational childhoods– was being present when Ghi-dorah, one of Godzilla’s major rivals, a radioactive-breathed, three-headed fl ying monster, was leveling his neighborhood. And now it was just a few hous-es away!)

The Movie Man agrees with most that the 1998 Godzilla re-make (Movie Man No. 235, a 4), despite impressive comput-er-generation, missed the mark mostly.

While also CG stuffed, this new Godzilla stays close to the original’s plot. There is no Smog Monster to defeat or a baby, Minilla, to protect. It’s just one gigantic creature tak-ing care of business – just like we monster movie devotees love, even if it messes up a few skyscrapers along the way.

The plot (spoilers galore)

Most folks thought that all that atomic bomb testing in the 1940’s was for military de-fense. It was actually a method of secretly battling a monster before it wreaked havoc on the world.

In 1999, Joe (Bryan Crans-ton) discovers governments are hiding something that is caus-ing massive electromagnetic disturbances. After a tragedy at a nuclear power plant, he devotes his remaining life to proving that something is not being disclosed.

His son grows up. Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a sol-ider, heads to Japan to bail his trouble-making dad out of the slammer. In a massive cave-in, explorers discover a MUTO – massive unidentifi ed terrestrial organism.

The problem: There’s a sec-ond MUTO that’s escaped and it’s a female. So the two MU-TOs are headed to mate in San Francisco (where they can feed on radioactivity).

Perhaps you’ve noticed there is no Godzilla yet. He eventu-ally shows up. Now the military, led by Admiral Stenz (David Strathairn), must decide wheth-er to try to slay the MUTOs and

Godzilla or, as a Japanese scien-tist suggests, “Let them fi ght.” Nature’s “balance” can be achieved by letting the ancient creatures duke it out, he says.

Unfortunately, that colossal struggle happens all over San Fran. Plus it’s two against one – even for Godzilla, that’s a chore. Just when he appears to have succumbed after the long colossal struggle…well, you can’t keep a good prehistoric monster down – especially when it’s a worldwide fi nancial phenomenon.

What worksThis is perfect CG. All the

monsters are cool. The MUTOs are long and spindly, like freaky Alieninsects. But it’s Godzilla who looks astonishing. Direc-tor Gareth Edwards admittedly borrowed from Jaws in keeping the great King of the Monsters mostly unseen for a huge chunk of the movie. And when he’s fi -nally revealed for long stretch-es, it isn’t a disappointment.

Many of the scenes are deft-ly rendered: Godzilla’s spiky spine sandwiched between two mighty destroyers zipping along at sea; the trail a huge MUTO left as it hatched and headed out through the moun-tainside to the ocean, leaving a wide trough of destruction behind; illustrating just how gi-gantic Godzilla really is when one expansive foot covers more than an entire city intersection;

the deafening roar and searing deadly radioactive breath; an impressive tsunami, and even the opening credits are fun in all their nostalgic glory.

Cranston brings some believ-ability as the conspiracy theo-rist. He has a great scene with wife Juliette Binoche in 1999 when he must seal her in a ra-dioactive chamber and watch her die. (But see What doesn’t work)

Best scene (spoiler)Godzilla is pursuing the MU-

TOs when he comes across the Golden Gate Bridge. The mon-ster seems to not want to smash it up. But there’s no way around and the MUTOs are on the oth-er side, so, oh well, sorry about

that. Godzilla just crashes right through it.

What doesn’t workThe plot is paper thin. Many

times it’s hard to believe that such a government conspiracy could possibly be maintained or that no one, somewhere, would fi nd some substantial disturbances in the earth’s elec-tromagnetic fi eld.

The humans are completely forgettable. And that might be a problem for some since the monsters, especially Godzilla, don’t show up for a long while. The dullest of all is Taylor-Johnson who is hard to root for.

The military keeps fi ring its dinky weapons at the critters even though it’s clearly use-less. Godzilla’s bigger than a skyscraper – bullets ain’t gonna do it! And all electronics are snuffed when in proximity to MUTOs yet you keep sending jet planes at them?

And no stinger. Bummer.

The ratingThe PG-13 is for the usual

city destruction caused by fan-tastic monsters battling non-stop.

Summing upAnother fun part of Godzilla

is that it sets the creature up as the savior of mankind – just

like many of the old pictures did. This movie is a monster-fest and that’s very cool. Hang in there and wait for the climac-tic battle; if you love creatures, you’ll enjoy Godzilla.

(And, no, Cranston does not play Walter White from Break-ing Bad who feeds the mon-sters meth and mankind wins because the titans’ teeth fall out. And, also, the Movie Man wouldn’t have complained if Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla” found its way into the movie. Alas, it did not.)

Next upAnother biggie: X-Men:

By Natalie GeNtryAzle’s Harlan Tidwell expe-

rienced the trip of a lifetime last month when he and 25 other Fort Worth area World War II, Korean, and Vietnam era veter-ans went on Honor Flight Fort Worth to visit the WWII Me-morial and other monuments in Washington D.C.

About the dayFor the veterans like Tidwell

the Honor Flight is an all-ex-

pense paid journey.At the prompting of his wife

Eileen, Tidwell applied to go on the honor flight and was ac-cepted to go on the trip held on April 29.

His son-in-law, Peter Robey, was approved to go along as Tidwell’s “guardian.”

Each veteran is assigned a guardian to be with them on the trip, and Tidwell seemed pleased that Robey was able to go along.

“He’s a veteran of the British Army, and I know he enjoyed the trip, too.” Tidwell said

The journey began at 4:30 a.m. with an orientation at Dal-las-Fort Worth Airport.

As the veterans boarded the plane a small crowd was gath-ered to see them off.

The captain of American Air-lines Flight 127 announced that Honor Flight Fort Worth was on board and honored the vet-erans.

A larger crowd was waiting for the vets when they landed at Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C.

“One of the most touching part of the trip was the peo-ple who greet us and waving flags and shaking our hands,” Tidwell said. “And when we got back to DFW they had [the Irving Pipe and Drum] band waiting for us.

“They waited an extra hour for us because the weather de-layed the flight.” he continued.

In Washington, the first stop for the group was the WWII memorial.

The seasoned veterans bat-tled unsentimental weather as they disembarked the tour bus.

The massive memorial has a fountain in the center and large pillars surrounding it. There is a pillar for every state in the na-tion.

“The mall at the WWII me-morial is gigantic.” Tidwell

said. “While we were there a lady Marine sang ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and another Marine played ‘Taps.’”

After the ceremony the vets were allowed to wander around

the memorial. The rain didn’t keep Tidwell from exploring.

Other memorialsThe next stops were visits to

the Vietnam Memorial, Kore-

an Memorial, and the Iwo Jima Memorial. The group was im-pressed with the size and detail in those memorials, Tidwell

Parker County Sheriff’s in-vestigators recovered several vehicles and tools leading to charges for four suspects in a re-cent theft case.

The original offense report was filed May 8, when the complainant told deputies his personal vehicle and three com-pany vehicles had been stolen, along with a trailer from a busi-ness located in the 6300 block of Interstate 20 in Weatherford.

The trucks contained thou-sands of dollars’ worth of tools at the time of the thefts.

Two additional work trucks left on the premises had been damaged with shattered wind-shields, damaged tires, and sev-ered battery cables.

Earlier this week, deputies discovered one of the stolen trucks abandoned on the side of the road at the intersection of Hilltop Terrace and Mini Ranch Road in Weatherford, and an-other vehicle left at a hotel off Interstate 20.

The business owner reported a disgruntled ex-employee – who had been fired just days prior to the offenses – as a pos-sible suspect.

A third truck was discovered abandoned in Hudson Oaks at a convenience store.

Video surveillance showed two men entering the parking lot in separate trucks.

One male exited the stolen truck, leaving it in the parking lot as he left the convenience store with the other male driver.

The video showed both men entering the stolen truck and taking items from it before they departed.

Tarrant County deputies later observed another suspect changing the license plates from another one of the stolen trucks.

The suspect – identified as Lacey Gregg, 44 – told Parker County Sheriff’s investigators

that he was pur-chasing the truck for cash and meth-amphetamine.

Sheriff’s inves-tigators also dis-covered two ad-ditional suspects had been pawning items which had been reported sto-len from churches in Arlington and Parker County.

Other stolen items were placed in a storage build-ing by the sus-pects.

Sheriff’s inves-tigators recovered the majority of the items stolen from the churches, in-cluding music and electronic equip-ment.

The suspects in-volved in the theft cases were iden-tified as Russell Scott Freeman, 27, of Azle; Den-nis Glen Brooks, 44, of Lake Worth; Lacy Elaine Lem-mings, 30, of Fort Worth; and Lacey Boyd Gregg, 44, of Weatherford.

Parker County Fugitive Appre-hension Strike Team members located Free-man, Lemmings and Brooks, and then booked the suspects into the Parker County Jail.

Freeman was charged with theft of property and a previous warrant

for assault caus-ing bodily injury. He was released Thursday on a $27,500 bond.

Lemmings was charged with theft of property. As of Monday, she re-mained incarcer-ated on a $25,000 bond.

Brooks was charged with theft of property and warrants for vio-lating a promise to appear, speeding, and a parole vio-lation, which a no bond was placed. As of May 19, Brooks remained incarcerated at the Parker County Jail.

Gregg was charged with theft of property. He was booked into the Mansfield Jail by Tarrant County Sheriff’s deputies.

“Our Criminal Investigations Di-vision investiga-tors and F.A.S.T. members did a wonderful job in following through with the investiga-tion until all sus-pects connected in this case were a p p r e h e n d e d , ” said Parker Coun-ty Sheriff Larry Fowler.

The case will routinely be filed with the Parker County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.

said.“The Korean Memorial de-

picted a platoon of soldiers on patrol,” Tidwell said. “The stat-ues were fantastic. Most people don’t realize how large these memorials are.”

Due to the inclement weather the groups could not go to Ar-lington Cemetery; instead they traveled to the Capitol.

“I wish we could have seen the changing of the guard at Arlington, “he said, “But we couldn’t, so we went up to the Capitol and were able to walk around.

“The first time I ever saw the Capitol was from the window of an airplane in 1953 as I was flying out to Europe,” Tidwell said.

He was finally able to visit the building 61 years later.

Before the group returned to the airport, it stopped at the Air Force Memorial.

“It was amazing,” Tidwell said. “It is three stainless steel spires that look like jets shoot-ing up and out in a star-burst [flight maneuver].”

The Honor Flight group then headed back to the airport.

Tidwell also said the volun-teers who are connected with Honor Flight Fort worth are to be commended.

“Everything was really orga-nized.” he said. “These people deserve all the thanks we can give them.”

About Honor FlightCongress authorized the

building of the WWII Memo-rial in 1993, in honor of the 16 million men and women who served the nation during the war. It was completed in 2004.

Shortly after the memorial was completed, Earl Morse – a physician assistant and retired Air Force captain who worked at a small Veterans Affairs clin-ic in Springfield, Ohio – asked the veterans he helped if they would ever travel to D.C. to see “their” memorial.

Most said they wanted to, but feared they would never see it because of their health, finan-cial challenges, or both.

Morse was determined to find a way to get these veterans to Washington to see their me-morial.

A private pilot, he offered one veteran a free flight to Washington. The man tearfully accepted the offer.

The next week, Morse of-fered to take another veteran and the reaction was the same.

In January 2005, Morse spoke to 150 members of the aeronautics club to which he belonged and outlined his dream of a program to fly vet-erans to their memorial.

After Morse spoke, 11 pilots who had never met his patients stepped up to volunteer, and Honor Flight was born.

From these humble begin-nings, Honor Flight has ex-

panded into a national network that essentially goes non-stop.

The program accepts applica-tions on a first come, first serve basis, but as of now preference is given to WWII and terminal-ly ill veterans.

Industrial and construction workers, along with their families (second hand expo-sure) are among those at risk for mesothelioma, lung cancer or gas-tro cancer (throat, stomach, colon).

Non-pesticide termite treatment now available in Texas

For more information, visit: www.ParticleBarrier.comCall Don Stetler (281.217.2965) or Polyguard (214.515.5000)

EPA Establishment # 89537-TX-1

Developed over years of Texas A&M testing, Polyguard Products, of Ennis, Texas introduces TERM Particle Barrier, the first and only Texas termite treatment not classified as a pesticide.

EPA classifies the TERM Particle Barrier as a “device”. The concept is simple - quartz particles are carefully sorted and sized to an exact combination. Particles are too large for termites to move, and too small for them to crawl between. The particle barrier simply blocks entry, causing termites to forage elsewhere for food.

TERM Particle Barrier can be installed by Polyguard authorized pest management professionals on the outside perimeter of existing or new

homes and schools, as well as in bath traps and wherever plumbing penetrations come through the slab. No building should be built without this particle barrier, as it blocks most places where termites enter structures. TERM Particle Barrier should dramatically reduce the need for pesticides.

Texas’ annual ENERGY STAR Sales Tax Holiday is Saturday, May 24, through Monday, May 26.

“This is a great opportunity for Texans looking for ways to stretch their family budgets,” Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said. “Shoppers can save money up front by not having to pay sales tax when buying appliances during the holiday weekend and the energy effi cient products can help reduce utility bill costs.”

Shoppers are expected to save an estimated $3.8 million in state and local sales tax during the Memorial Day sales tax holiday.

The sales tax break applies to ENERGY STAR qualifi ed air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less; refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less; ceiling fans; fl uorescent light bulbs; dishwashers; dehumidifi ers; and clothes washers.

The Reno Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) will soon fl y new fl ags from its pole in front of the fi re station in downtown Reno courtesy of the Eagle Mountain Chap-ter Daughters of the American Revolution (EMDAR). The group donated a new American fl ag that once fl ew over the U. S. Capitol, as well as a new Texas fl ag that was fl own over the state Capitol in Austin to the Reno VFD at its May 10 meeting. Fire Chief Darrell Brummett received the fl ags along with offi cial plaques to hang at the fi re station. The EMDAR chapter also had a water drive for the RVFD, pro-viding several cases of wa-ter for the start of the sum-mer fi re season. The DAR encourages local citizens to donate fl ats of water to all area fi re departments as they prepare for a long hot summer.
