LULING Charges are pending on a man who was shot after stabbing two others, including a child, during a New Years celebration in a rural area near Luling. Caldwell County Sheriff Daniel Law said that on Jan. 1, Caldwell

the time Stuart had been shot he and others had gathered at a New Years celebration at the address and a disturbance erupted. Investigators were told Carter stabbed two different persons of which one was later airlifted to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin. Another party-goer shot Stuart in the buttocks in defense of the

stabbing victims, deputies said. One of the victims who since has been released from the hospital was stabbed twice, once in the chest area and once in the leg. The other victim who was a child was stabbed on her left leg and was treated and released from Seton Edgar B. Davis Hospital in Luling. MAN SHOT, Page A5

Events center could replace Wells Lodge

it was donated to the city, there was never any maintenance done there, Barnes said. Im surprised we havent had any accidents out there, Schurig said, recalling that as a teenager hed camped at the site prior to it becoming a city facility. Its my understanding that the family pretty much washed its hands of the lodge after a break-in several years ago when a lot of the (memorabilia) was stolen. Because of the lack of maintenance, Barnes said, the barn is now a pile of wood. Councilman Lorenzo Hernandez said the city might be able to continue Wells wish that his collected memorabilia be on public display by housing it in the events center, although part of his collection is also on display at the historic JB Wells House on Mitchell St. During the public comment, citizen JoAnn Liefeste urged the Council to consider renovating the site CITY, Page A5

Gonzales Healthcare Systems is proud to announce the first baby of 2014. A 5-pound, 7-ounce baby girl measuring 18 inches long, took her first breath January 1, 2014. Julianna Marie Rivera, the 2014 New Years Baby, was born at 8:07 a.m. at Gonzales Memorial Hospital to Mikayla Wickens and Steven Rivera of Gonzales. Juliana Marie Rivera was delivered by David Meredith, DO. Mikayla was under the care of Christopher Walker, MD. While there was a tinge of excitement at Juliana being the first baby of the New Year, the familys concern was that she was healthy. The nurses in the OB Department said they were excited to be able to play a part in bringing Julianna into this world. Wickens said she and her daughter are doing just fine. Baby Juliana received a bag full of gifts from Gonzales Healthcare Systems and the Gonzales Memorial Auxiliary in recognition the First Baby of the New Year. Barbara Blanchard crocheted a beautiful pink and white bonnet for the New Years baby. They did a wonderful job taking care of my daughter and me, Wickens said of the ladies in the OB department, as did Dr. Meredith and Dr. Walker.

Part of the legacy donated to the City of Gonzales by J.B. Wells is coming down but the city hopes to replace it with a newer, longer-lasting legacy. Gonzales City Council on Tuesday voted to direct city staff to tear down the old Summer Lodge and Barn at JB Wells Park, preparatory to using the site as a home for the citys planned multievents center. I think Mr. Wells would like to see an events center there, Councilman Tommy Schurig said in introducing the motion. He always liked to be the center of attention, and it would be the center of attention. City Manager Allen Barnes explained that Wells will stipulated his estate would administer his old Summer Lodge site and the adjacent historic Santa Anna Mound until the passing of his immediate heirs, when it would be donated to the city. That happened in 1999. For 36 years between his death (in 1963) and when

Areas that have let water under the building will be sealed with the current work. Barnes said that the second step in the renovation process will be cleaning the outside of the building beginning on Jan. 20. The limestone is stained with nearly 80 years of algae growth. he said. Mid-Continental Restoration will treat the building with a chemical to kill the algae; they will then apply a rinsing agent, and finally will use a bleach type substance to return the stone to its original Cordova Cream color. Even after these three steps are applied, it will take a month to six weeks MUSEUM, Page A5

A Gonzales landmark is getting a scrub-down. The Gonzales Memorial Museum will receive its first major renovation since it opened in 1936, including a washdown of the buildings exterior. City Manager Allen Barnes announced that crews with Vics Concrete began tearing out portions of the sidewalks and landings between the museum and the amphitheater on Tuesday. Barnes said One of the major problems we have experienced with the museum is water getting under the building and just sitting there. Today we began the work to ensure that this water infiltration does not happen anymore.

Workmen with Vics Concrete begin hammering through the walkway connecting the Gonzales Memorial Museum and amphitheater on Tuesday. The area has been one where water has seeped under the structure over the years. Its the first major renovation of the facility since it was opened in 1936. (Photo by Dave Mundy)

Happy New Years from the land of dog toys, diet Cokes and ambushes
Happy New Year and Good Morning Iraq! 06:00 here - I just took Mad, my dog, out. Like you, we have a morning routine. 04:30-05:00 - Mad starts making noise and banging on kennel door, Feed me! So, I get up and feed him and wait until he is finished. Then he jumps on the bed for a battle of wills, me wanting to lie down, and him wanting to play (he wins, always). After about 30 minutes of wrestling around with me trying to get under covers and him pulling them off, I give up and get out of bed. 05:45 or so - I get dressed and take him to the break area. Its foggy, cold, and drizzling this morning. I let him do his stuff and pick up after him. We all (mostly) pick up after our dogs and place the poop in a small trashcan. The morning shift working gates has to empty it. That is something we rotate. Back to the room I get a little payback and Mad gets his teeth brushed. Yes brushed. He doesnt really mind. He vocally complains but he holds still as I clean his teeth. BTW-- he likes Crest. Once finished, he goes right in his kennel and lies down; its now 06:00 Im up so I reluctantly make the decision to go to breakfast and venture out into the fog and dampness again. As I walk to the DFAC, I pass four Iraqis carrying AK 47s, I hope they are security but in this weather it is hard to tell. There are so many armed people walking around here in all sorts of clothing. You sort of trust the system and hope the right people are inside the wire. Arriving at the DFAC, I can get a delicious plate of almost warm powdered scrambled eggs, limp bacon, and a McDonalds type hash brown patty that needed a few more minutes in the fryer. I top that with a bagel and cream cheese (Ill eat that later so its wrapped in paper napkins and slipped in my coat) and as many diet cokes as I can get in my pockets. We are

limited at two but no one counts. I take my tray and mechanically eat my food. I normally sit at the table when Im done for a little while, if Im not on morning shift, and mentally get ready for the day. I throw the left overs away and give my tray to one of the many local Iraqis working at the dishwashing station. All he washes are the trays as everything else is disposable. I head back out into the cold and walk the quarter mile back to the room. Back in my little room I hang my coat and hat on the nail I hammered into the wall with a rock and check email, see who did or didnt send me something, and check on the latest news on the internet. Its 07:00 by now and like most people who are on their second cup of coffee, I open my second of five or six diet cokes for the day. Of course, that is not always the case as the dining facility (DFAC) runs out of them all the time. Seems Im not the only diet coke dependent one here. Finished with the browsing on the internet, I kick off my shoes and lay back down for a little while. Mad is quiet until I lay down. That is his cue for more playtime, so the barking, moaning and banging on the kennel door starts. I can only take a very short time of this, he has me trained well, and I let him out. He grabs his squeaky ball, immediately jumps on the bed, and proceeds to shove it in my face.

I get up and go back to my chair. Mad is on the bed. He hangs off the side and drops the ball so it rolls off and onto the floor with a thud and squeak that the guy living at the other end of the building can hear. Yes, Ive been talked to about that. This is my signal to throw it back to him. He catches it and the cycle repeats. This will go on as long as I let it but after about fifteen minutes, Im done. He goes back to the kennel and I make up the now destroyed bed, sweep the floor of the rolling tumbleweeds of dog hair, and empty the trash. Its still raining outside so with the comings and goings the floor of my room is a mess. It is 08:00. Only three and a half more hours and the next big event of the day arrives, lunch. Routine is the same, walk the quarter mile in the rain to the DFAC, eat whatever they have, pocket a couple more diet cokes and head back to the room. I have the afternoon shift at work so I can NOW start my day. As shift starts, I gather my stuff for the day and check equipment. Coat, hat, gloves, leash, dog toy, water bowl, pistol, radio, body armor, helmet, Dog and go to my assigned vehicle. Today Ill be searching vehicles coming into the base at the two entry gates. There is a series of things the incoming vehicles have to do to get to me before I search them that I cant explain due to operation security, (OPSEC) but to say the least, the dog teams are pretty far out front. My partner team and I take turns searching. One of us acts as security over-watch as the other searches. We are not alone in this as there is other security with the vehicles as well. The very first search this morning really set the day up. As we were searching, and just about when we were on the last vehicle, a very loud boom went off. We all, including or dogs, ducked a little. You could feel the

concussion. It sounded like it was at the checkpoint just before us. Everyones situational awareness (SA) went right to the top of the scale. All were scanning the area to see what would happen next. Weapons ready, but no targets, nothing. The vehicle drivers and their passengers wanted out of the area badly, we wanted out of the area too as we are exposed when we search so we finished quickly and everyone, including us, moved inside the perimeter. I found out a little later that another Iraqi checkpoint, this one on the opposite side of the base from where we were, was also hit. In that case the guards were killed and the attackers stole their fully marked and loaded High Utility Mobile Mechanized Vehicle, you know it as a HUMMV. One no doubt we gave the Iraqi Army when we pulled out. Two days earlier, one of our PSD teams was ambushed at an Iraqi checkpoint just outside Taji, the last post I was at. The team leader, the apparent target, took three rounds to the chest. They all hit his body armor, thank goodness, and being the type of guy that works here, he got back in his vehicle and continued on with his mission of delivering one of our handlers to the airport in Baghdad. BTW-- this is the same PSD team that brought me in from Baghdad and the ambush was on the same route. When the wounded PSD operator finished the escort, he wanted to just come back to base like nothing happened. Just another day at the office to him, but he was forced by procedure to go to the doctor and be checked out. A quick medevac to the hospital in Jordan revealed two broken ribs. He will be back in a couple weeks. Yes, it is shaping up to be an exciting time here, Happy New Year! Im Jon Harris and this has been another Dispatch from Downrange- Iraq

There were a lot of stories in 2013 which tugged at your heart strings and made you want to smile. I cant begin to relate in this space how many people of all walks of life stepped up and did little things that meant a whole lot. Some of the stories were colored by loss; others were examples of the indomitable human spirit. Some made you just want to smile, some made you seethe, and some made you want to cry to Heaven. And some stories well, they just made you want to double up in peals of laughter and do the Curly Shuffle on the floor. The years end provided us with the Number One Heart-Warming Story ... and proof that Darwins theory that the human species is evolving rather than devolving is false. On Nov. 27, 2013, an expedition composed primarily of devoted cultists of Australian science professor Chris Turley boarded a Russian research ves-

al-warming cults delusionary dogma. Youll recall that Mr. Global Warming himself, Al Gore the guy with the electricity-sucking palace in Tennessee told us that by 2013, wed have no ice at the North Pole. Interestingly enough, real scientists reported this year that the north polar ice cap grew the most its ever grown. More and more people are starting to wake up the fact that the purveyors of climate change are frauds, charlatans and snakeoil salesmen. Gores dire warnings of imminent global catastrophe, for exmaple, immediately followed his massive investment in a number of green energy operations. In other words, hes in it to get rich. Likewise, Professor Turley. He states on his website: To do something positive about climate change, I helped set up a carbon refining company called Carbonscape which has developed technology to fix carbon from

the atmosphere and make a host of green bi-products, helping reduce greenhouse gas levels. Translating the statement to Texican: I hope to get bloody rich by creating massive fear and then using science to save us all from carbon dioxide, since most people arent making the connection that plant life feeds on carbon dioxide. The whole global-warming movement operates on a very simple axiom which has been a mainstay of American advertising for decades. You can use science to prove almost any claim, and the public will buy it. Example: Leading scientists say the most important element in a heart-healthy breakfast is whole grain. Unless youre selling eggs, in which case leading scientists say that recent studies prove that eggs arent as un-healthy as everyone thought. Doesnt matter that youve hand-picked facts or even that, like the global-warming people, you simply made them up. As

long as you can get scientists to say it as Gore and Co. did with the United Nations researchers several years back by providing tem with millions in grants theyll say whatever you want them to say. You can even take the same numbers and make them say different things. Take unemployment. Republicans say the unemployment rate shows Democrat policies are failing; Democrats point out that more and more people are leaving the rolls of the unemployed (because they quit looking for work), which is a sign the economy is improving. It was a British politician, Benjamin Disraeli, who noted: There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. The global-warming folks prefer a German politicans view, however. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually (everyone) will believe it, said Adolf Hitler.

Traveling through Europe


This is an edited transcript of an interview heard on the The News from the Camphouse on KULM 98.3 FM. Brune: Most recently listeners have responded approvingly when I had my daughter on talking about public relations, marketing, and sales versus journalism. Today, Ive invited her back to tell us about her European tour. Sam flew into Rome and saw a bit of Italy. After that she traveled to Hungary, Austria, Germany, and France. Sam, would you please tell us about your trip and then relate what you saw concerning social structures and lifestyles? Sam: My trip was super exciting and I was fortunate to do a European trip with one of my good friends Erica Schneider. She spent the fall working as a teaching assistant in Italy for her degree at Texas A&M University. We started in Rome and then went to Vienna, Austria. Then we did a day in Budapest, Hungary, after which we spent another day and a half in Munich, Germany. And we ended our trip with four days in Paris. The culture and people are evident in everything you see with modern technology as well as the amazing historical sites. One thing I should say is that if any of the ladies need a confidence boost you should check out Rome. The men are pretty straightforward. But honestly, Rome is incredible. We saw the Coliseum and the Forum and St. Peters Basilica. The country is amazing. Brune: Okay, but I want to know about lifestyles. Remember when we went to Norway? You and I stayed with a professor that taught at Oslo University. His wife was a middle school teacher and they had two boys. They lived in a three-story four-plex and shared washers and dryers, located in the basement, with three other families. They had one small car and while they were happy and comfortable its not the lifestyle that most college professors in the U.S. enjoy. Also, if we wanted to eat beef we had to go to the harbor for pizza. Most of their menu consisted of fish or cold cuts. It was a beautiful country and great experience visiting, but it was also an eye-opener.

Vicious attack on Romney shows the racism of liberals


In another unbelievable show of liberal racism, panelists on the MSMBC show Melissa HarrisPerry show criticized and mocked a family photo of 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. In the picture, Romney held his adopted grandchild, Kieran Romney, who is black. Lets understand the facts in this story. The child is the adopted grandson of Romney, and thus part of family. It is a tradition among many families to send a photo of the family at Christmas time, and thus since the child is a member of family, he is included in the picture.

However, to racist liberals who believe that only blacks should raise blacks, or only Hispanics can represent Hispanics in politics, the idea of a conservative family adopting or raising a minority child is upsetting. Panelists, all liberals, on the Sunday show mocked the Christmas card photo of where Romney was holding the child. Panelist Pia Glenn sang, One of these things is not like the others, while fellow panelists laughed. Host Harris-Perry pondered the idea of a marriage between Kieran and singer Kanye Wests daughter. And, political comedian Dean Obeidallah sarcastically commented that the picture sums up the diversity of the Republican party. While some journalists have condemned the panelists, liberal racism in the media needs to be exposed. This is not the first time that a Republican leader has been attacked by racist liberals. Lets remember the fit the media and liberals pitched when former President George H.W. Bush called his grandson, George P. Bush, the little brown one. Its also curious that in both cases, children are the object of liberal racists. Liberal racism tries to mask itself as politically correct fun. Liberals hide their racist policies that keep minorities dependent on government. They prey on the uneducated and insecure claiming to help them. In Texas, Leticia Van De Putte claims to represent and be sensitive to Hispanics, while she promotes government policies that destroy Hispanic families and abort Hispanic fetuses. State Representative Trey Fisher claim that only Hispanics can best represent can best represent Hispanics in government, and thus there should be Hispanic majority (segregated) districts. Their arguments are racist, and they should be exposed as such. America should be a melting pot of people and cultures. Instead, liberals want to create a society where groups owe allegiance to their group first rather than to the nation. Racists have always ridiculed integration and its time to expose and challenge these liberal racists (and sexists) who promote segregation.

I also remember seeing a good number of very young women pushing baby carriages and leading large dogs. It seemed obvious that these were single mothers who lived alone. And it caused a person to wonder if this social phenomenon was the cause of government assistance. Did you see anything like this during your journey? Sam: In the countries I visited, there are different expectations of living environments, travel, and what we would consider conveniences. As Americans, our expectations are more extravagant. We expect everything to be convenient. For example: Hotel rooms are much smaller. When you ask for a double room in the U.S. you get two queen size beds. When we asked for a room with two beds in Europe, we got rooms with two twin size beds. Another example would be phone service and internet. In the U.S. were pretty well connected with phone plans. In Europe a person must pay for internet. When we wanted to go somewhere we had to look up the addresses and cross reference on maps. In todays age thats pretty old fashioned. So you see, things were just not as convenient. We also didnt have vehicles so we always planned ahead because we used subways. We also didnt use cabs because cabs are expensive. We found out that its not easy for people to get drivers licenses in some of the countries. Brune: Tell us about Vienna. Sam: We got to see palaces, churches, and wonderful art exhibits. We saw an opera, Hansel and Gretel, and Vienna was probably one of our most cultural stops on the trip. Its a country rich in architecture, history, and its extremely clean and traveler friendly. As two girls traveling, we felt very safe

in Vienna. There are coffee caf all over the city. Its like having Starbuck on every corner except each is a small caf. Brune: Then you went to Munich? Sam: Yes, it was great. We drank beer in the oldest brewery in Germany and ate lots of food. But one of the more impactful things was seeing the Dachua Concentration Camp Memorial. This was the first concentration camp and longest running facility. It was built to house 6,000 prisoners but when it was liberated by American troops they found more than 30,000 people incarcerated. And because of disease there was a quarantine period before they could be release. It was a very powerful experience seeing this place and learning the history. Brune: Tell us about Budapest. Sam: This was not my favorite place to visit. Many of the buildings are much more recent and that could have been due to bombing during WWII. It also seems that Hungary is somewhat isolated. People there speak Hungarian which is a complex language. And this creates a language barrier for the countries around them. Whereas many of the other countries share German, English, and other languages Hungary seemed more alone with their own language. Brune: What about Paris? Sam: Paris was different. As soon as you get off the plane in various cities you immediately feel the difference in cultures comparing to where you just left. We arrived in Paris from Munich. In Germany I could have stuck $100 bills to myself, worn a tube top and walked around at night. But in Paris, a person felt more like maybe we should head to our rooms as dark approached. Our feelings were that while Paris is touristry, there are high-end destinations and then low end places we needed to avoid. Nevertheless, we did see wonderful sites in Paris. Out of all the places we went, it was obvious that the people always appreciated when we tried to speak the language. And throughout our trip nobody was ever rude whether it was waitresses or people on the street.

Gonzales Cannon employees received something of a shock when they arrived to open up Monday morning: someone had ransacked the office over the weekend. Gonzales Police are investigating breakins at the office of The Cannon at 618 St. Paul and the adjoining office of AOG at 620 St. Paul, which apparently took place sometime over the weekend. Gonzales Cannon General Manager Dave Mundy said the burglar or burglars left the office a shambles, but apparently didnt find what they were looking for: cash. A lot of desk drawers had been opened and things gone through, but so far as we can tell the only things taken were two en-

velopes containing a small amount of cash for winners from our fall Football Contest that were never claimed, he said. No other property was reported missing, he said, although some personal items belonging to employees were broken. The rear door of The Cannon office had been pried open to enable entry, police said. Numerous fingerprints were lifted at the scene. Possibly the same suspect or suspects attempted to break in the AOG office next door, gaining access to an unused storeroom but were unable to get through an interior door. AOG employees reported no property missing in that incident.

for the full effect to be realized, Barnes said. Once the algae is removed, it will take the natural sunshine to actually bleach the remaining color away. The final steps of the first phase of the restoration will come later in the year with the installation of drainage and air circulation equipment under the museum.

The Texas Agricultural Extension Service and the Gonzales Master Gardeners are starting off the New Year with eagerness to start vegetables for our gardens this spring. It may be a little cool outside, but come to 623 Fair St. building (adjacent to Gonzales Elem.), Jan. 11th, at 10 a.m., to learn how to start transplants inside. Jim Johnson, an expe-

CITY: Lodge at park will come down

We want to restore the museum to its original condition. The total cost for a complete restoration is somewhere between $3.5 and $4 million, Barnes said. Thats a pretty big project, so well have to take it one step at a time until its done. The City plans to allocate funds for steps toward the restoration in future budgets. We have been working with the Texas State Historical Commission.

They have advised us every step of the way getting to this point. They have outstanding staff people who have protecting the antiquities of Texas as their primary focus, Barnes said. The Historic Commission has issued a permit for the first phase of the project. I grew up around the museum and have special memories of it, Mayor Bobby Logan said. It is our responsibility as community leaders to preserve this unique piece of Texas treasure.

Stuart was airlifted to Brackenridge with a bullet wound to his buttock area and was admitted for his injury. Investigation is on going pending Warrants

per Wells original will. Liefeste read a portion of the will directing that his estate build a monument honoring his parents and reserve the Santa Anna Mound area as a game park for white-tail deer native to the area. During the Council discussion, Hernandez suggested the city could honor the former wish by erecting a plaque as part of the events center. Barnes also told the Council the City has again earned a Gold Award from the Texas Comptrollers Office for transparency in financial reporting. Its the second straight award for Gonzales, with the city receiving a for Aggravated Assault perfect 20 of 20 score. Also Tuesday, Council began reviswith a Deadly Weapon ing the citys ordinance regulating taxi and Injury to a Child.

cabs. Barnes told council members he had been approached by someone interested in starting a taxi service in town the first in several decades and the revision passed Tuesday updated the taxicab license fee from $25 to $50, plus $10 per cab. Barnes said the city would likely revisit and revise the ordinance again in the near future to bring it up to modern standards. Council also re-appointed Debbie Toliver, Del DeLos Santos, George Wilhelm and Sherry Schellenberg to the Main Street Advisory Board, naming Carlos Camarillo and Diane McCaskill to two-year terms and Lisa Kay Brown to a one-year term to replace Michelle London, who resigned after moving out of the area. In other action, Council: Approved the use of Texas Heroes Square April 4-5 for the Gonzales

Master Gardeners Spring Plant Sale; Approved street closures related to the annual Edwards Association Martin Luther King Jr. Day March/ Parade on Jan. 20; Authorized the resale of surplus city electronics equipment; Authorized the tax resale of two properties which had been on the resale block since 1998; Approved the re-zoning of four land parcels adjacent to or near Sarah DeWitt Dr. from R-1 Residential to C-2 Commercial to enable the owners to sell the properties. NOTE: Tuesdays meeting was held in the newly-repainted Council Chambers. Barnes said later that some budgeted security upgrades had been installed at City Hall, but because of security concerns could not divulge what those upgrades were.

When work was finished, she enjoyed reading, gardening, playing bridge, singing with the Sweet Adelines, and winning numerous bowling trophies. She learned to love many of the activities Jimmie enjoyed except swimming and horseback riding. But not knowing how to swim never kept her out of boats, off piers or away from lakes and rivers if there were fish that might be caught. She was a bird hunter, tractor driver, sheep and goat drencher, fence builder, furniture refinisher and general handy-person. In the 1960s she took up golf which she loved and in the 1970s she took to motorcycle riding, sometimes behind Jim and other times riding her own. With the Retreads Motorcycle Club, they clocked many miles to Niagra Falls on the east coast, the redwood forest on the west coast and lots of places in between. Missing grandparent time, Jim and Dubba followed their only daughter to the Austin area in 1990, making their home in Lakeway on the 15th fairway and finding many new friends and fun activities. Grandkids and friends alike delighted in Dubbas snickerdoodles, buckeyes and other candies and cookies at Christmastime. In 2004 they once more followed Sharon, this time to Gonzales where again primarily through golf they made many wonderful friends whom they enjoyed together for over eight years. Left to remember Dubba as a delightful role model of integrity, enthusiasm and unselfishness and to celebrate her life are daughter Sharon Pirkle and son-inlaw Ashley Pirkle of Gonzales, grandchildren Tracey Zientek and husband John of Sealy, Sally Basche and husband Andy of Taylor, and Megan Hackworth and husband Corey of Columbus, Ohio, great-grandchildren Jaclyn Zientek, Abigail Zientek, Bethany Basche, Nathan Basche, Annabelle Hackworth and Asher Hackworth, sister Katie M. Bird of Vienna, VA, sister-in-law Evelyn Hutchison of Uvalde and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, her parents, her brother, her sister Virginia O. King and three brothers-in-law. The family received friends at Seydler-Hill Funeral Home from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday evening. Graveside services will be officiated by Rev. Andy Smith of First United Methodist Church at 2 p.m. on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at Gonzales Memorial Park. Memorials may be made to the donors choice of charities. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Seydler-Hill Funeral Home, 906 St. Paul, Gonzales, Texas 830-6723232.

Elizabeth Evelyn McClure (Dubba) Hutchison, 1922-2013 Elizabeth Evelyn McClure (Dubba) Hutchison slipped the bonds of this earthly endeavor on Friday, January 3, 2014 in Gonzales, Texas. She was born December 5, 1922 in Honey Grove, Texas to Alec Cullen McClure and Katherine Reed Johnson McClure. She was the third born of three daughters followed by a brother, Thomas Earl, who sadly died in 1932 at age four due to illness. Elizabeth, who later at age 12 was given by sisters and friends the nickname Dubba, stepped up to become not only a vivacious Daddys girl but also an energetic tomboy, her Mothers chauffer and a do whatever needs doing go-getter. After high school, she completed an A.A. degree from Paris Junior College in 1942 and was granted a temporary teaching certificate. Instead of teaching she followed her oldest sister and brother-in-law to Florida where she joined the dwindling wartime workforce for about a year and earned money to finish college. Returning to Texas she completed her education at East Texas State Teachers College (now Texas A&M-Commerce) where after changing her major from music to physical education she earned a B.S. in 1945. While there, she was recognized as one of the cutest personalities in E.T. and proclaimed by a friend to have more friends than any other girl in E.T. and to be sincere, fair, faithful and conscientiousqualities every Kalir should have. After graduation and certification, she was employed as the girls P.E. coach in Uvalde where she met Jimmie Hutchison; they were married less than a year later on July 14, 1946. Dubba promptly resigned her teaching job and joined her husband in his business as the bookkeeper. A year and a half later, they added daughter Sharon to the business as greeter and social director.

A man of many words, he sparked a conversation with anyone he came in contact with, and whether young or old, poor or wellto-do, individuals of all races who came to know Booker referred to him as Booker, my friend. Booker was a kind and generous person who always offered to help others. He had a sense of adventure and loved meeting people, doing activities, and going places. One of his favorite pastimes was spending time with his family. He loved to travel during the summer months with his wife, sons, daughter-inlaw, and grandchildren across the states.

Gonzales Book Club News


By CAROLYN MIKESH
Special to The Cannon

The Cat Who Came for Christmas, a biography Cleveland Amory, was the topic of our Dec. Book Club meeting with Betty Hughes leading the discussion. Amory attended Harvard and became the youngest editor ever of The Saturday Evening Post. Very active in animal rights, he joined the board of directors of the Humane Society in 1962 and in 1967 founded the Fund for Animals. Amory was asked to help take in a cat from a New York City alley on Christmas Eve. It was snowing and his neighbor was having no luck catching it. Eventually they caught the hissing, scratching, grey, and dirty cat and Amory took it home. In the morning when he finally cleans it, he is surprised to find a beautiful white cat. He and the cat spend a lot of time talking throughout the book. What color did you expect, purple? But you were so dirty, I protested. White was the last color I expected. This goes on throughout the entire book, making for a wonderful read. Amory tells of many conversations and describes the cats personality. The cat avoids his friends when they come. Amory belongs to him, the cat, not to them. He tells of choosing a name for the cat. Amory says picking a dogs name is easy, but a cat must be in on the selection of its name. They finally choose Polar Bear. We described our favorite episodes. Mine was when Amory was in the bath and Polar Bear would walk on his shoulders and nip his ear and sit on the tub and watch. Bettys was when he tried to give Polar Bear a pill. He was so sure he had succeeded but the pill always ended up on the floor. Among Amorys humane efforts was saving the whales and seals. He once funded a ship that rammed a whaling ship. Though we agreed it was wrong and illegal, it worked. Amory also helped spray orange dye on seals so their pelts could not be used for fur. Amory tells of researching the nine lives of cats, giving them their life saving abilities. First, the cat always lands on his feet. The second comes from his whiskers which are part of his ability to operate in the dark. Third is his ability to smell at great distances, and fourth is his remarkable hearing. The fifth is his amazing visual powers and ability to see in the dark. The sixth is his homing instinct and seventh is his ability to make his fur stand on end, increasing his size. There was no eighth or ninth in the research. This cat scholar, however, who is no mystic, felt shortchanged says Amory. Amory also included the history of cat idolatry from 3000 B.C. in Egypt. Cats were goddesses of the Sun and Moon and Love with their own temples and priests. In the Middle Ages in Europe life was different. There was the Black Mass and the cat became the creature of the Devil. He was condemned as the source of all manner of witchcraft, sorcery, and voodoo. Our next meeting will be Jan. 16 from 10-11am at Lifords Books and Fine Art. We will discuss The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman, a novel about a lighthouse keeper whose wife convinces him to keep a baby who comes ashore in a boat with her dead father. Anyone interested in a literary discussion is welcome. Please come.

Famed magician Harry Houdini was born with the less-than-inspiring name Erich Weiss. There is a planet named Gliese 436b orbiting a red dwarf star. Its about the size of Neptune, and its very, very hot -- roughly 820 degrees Fahrenheit. None of this is terribly unusual; whats truly surprising is the fact that the planets surface is made up largely of ice (with an outer layer of hydrogen and helium) despite the heat. It seems that the gravity and atmospheric pressure are so great that water is forced into a solid form, creating so-called hot ice. A Louisiana man once caught a grape in his mouth that was tossed from 252 feet away. *** Thought for the Day: He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire. -- Sir Winston Churchill

It was Polish chess grandmaster Savielly Tartakower who made the following sage observation: Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake. In the late 19th century, a single female Bengal tiger, known as the Champawat Tiger, was solely responsible for an estimated 430 deaths in India and Nepal. After evading hunters and the Nepalese Army for years, she was finally killed in 1907 by a hunter named Jim Corbett. A leech can consume 10 times its weight in its victims blood.

In 2011, during a tough financial time for the nation of Romania, the government instituted a 16 percent tax on the incomes of self-proclaimed witches, fortunetellers and astrologers. Those so employed were incensed and vowed retribution, some casting spells against the president and those members of the government who had supported the legislation. In an unrelated incident, the legislature also drafted a measure that would punish those who incorrectly predicted the future.

Kittens go outside on Lady Cats


MOULTON The Moulton Bob Kittens bench had a good night on outside shooting in a 59-18 win over the Waelder Lady Wildcats Tuesday night in Moulton. Our bench players hit the outside shots better than they usually do, Moulton head coach John Meisetschleager said. Seniors Kendall Kristnyik and Taylor Bohuslav led the Kittens (12-8, 2-0) with 11 points each in the book as nine total players scored. Our team chemistry was real good tonight, Meisetschleager said. We worked together well and the outcome was better than I thought it would be. Moulton still has a few things to work on before tomorrows (Friday) Homecoming game against Austwell-Tivoli. We need to fix some things on defense before our district game against A-T, he said. The loss drops the Lady Wildcats to 0-8 and 0-1. We are young and inexperienced, Waelder head coach David President said. We are just trying to get the basics and fundamentals taught to the girls. He said he mainly is looking for learning, hustle and improvement in each contest. We harp on playing hard and finishing ball games, President said. They are on a learning curve with a lot of changes over the last couple of years. It is a growing process as the players continue to learn and get better. Sarah Baker got the first two baskets of the game, getting a feed from Graisyn Neto and later scored an unassisted basket after an offensive rebound. Waelder closed down to 4-1 on the free throw by Kelsey Gonzales but it would turn out to be the only time they got on the scoreboard in the first period. Kristynik hit two free throws, got a steal to help Nieto score and then scored after a pass from Baker. Nieto had two more baskets and Kristynik had one as the Bob Kittens held a 16-1 lead after the first quarter. Maggie Gallant sank three of Moultons first five baskets in the second quarter for a 26-1 advantage and Waelder was able to counter with free throws from Chelsea Nich-

ols. Later, Julie Fojtik drained a shot from downtown as Moulton forged a 31-6 halftime lead. In the third quarter, Waelder got baskets from Monica Bracamontes and Yasmin Porter to book eight points while Moulton got four points apiece from Bohuslav and Paige Bartos for a 41-14 lead heading into the fourth period. Bohuslav sank seven points and Taylor Pilat added four points as Moulton went on an 18-4 run to finish the game.

Lady Mustangs get tough on Gonzales

Early in the third quarter of their district opener Friday night against La Grange, the Gonzales Lady Apaches trailed just 26-18. Over a good portion of the quarter, the Lady Leopards were held to just one point while Gonzales bagged 13 to lead by four to start the fourth quarter. La Grange reversed thing and went on a 13-2 run to beat the Lady Apaches 40-33 at GHS Special Events Center. We lost our composure again, Gonzales head coach Valerie Akpan said.

and Tajerrica Smith helped give Gonzales an early 4-3 advantage. Renae Camarillo later hit a field goal to put Gonzales ahead 8-4. La Grange rallied to tie the game at 8-8 before Camarillo sank a three, after a pass from Hardy, to put the Lady Apaches ahead 11-8. At the end of the first period, an Ericka Hernandez free throw allowed Gonzales a 12-10 lead. We had been working on focusing and were able to come out ready to play, Akpan said. We just were unable to maintain that intensity. The Lady Leopards used a 6-0 run to start the second period, getting two baskets from Lexus Davis. Gonzales fought back to a 16-16 game with a Hardy basket and two

free throws from Smith. La Grange used an 8-2 run to close out the first half, ahead 24-18. Gonzales third-period run was kicked off on a Camarillo bucket, from the Hernandez pass. Later, Amanda Dixson got a steal, got the ball to Danielle Flowers who then shuffled it to Jordan Pitman for the score. Pitman later helped Hardy on the three-point shot that knotted things at 27-27 and then scored to put Gonzales ahead, 29-27, their first lead since the second quarter. Hardy then scored off a turnover to put the Lady Apaches lead at 31-27 to enter the fourth. Eventually, La Grange battled to trail 33-32 and then went on an 8-0 run to

finish the game, getting a lot of productivity from the free-throw line. Gonzales was held to just two points in the fourth, missing numerous free throws and baskets. Our shots were just not falling, Akpan said. The Gonzales Lady Apaches junior varsity team lost to La Grange 37-30.

NIXON Playing the Gonzales Lady Apaches on Dec. 31 was the third time the Nixon-Smiley Lady Mustangs had played a Class 3A team from District 26. Nixon-Smiley had fallen to the Yoakum Lady Bulldogs and the Cuero Lady Gobblers Dec. 27-28 in the Victoria St. Joseph tournament. The Lady Mustangs pulled off a 43-33 win over Gonzales at Nixon-Smiley High School Gymnasium. I am hoping playing these 3A teams will toughen us, Nixon-Smiley head coach Jeff Van Auken

said. Our 2A district is very tough with several ranked teams. Playing the Yoakums, Gonzaless and Cueros will help us play at the level required to for our district. The Lady Apaches struggled immensely shooting the ball in the first half. They finished the first quarter with a mere two points and managed to bucket eight points in the second period. I told them to work as a team, Gonzales head coach Valerie Akpan said. It is hard to play well when it is one on five. Gonzales got out of its offensive funk in the third quarter with 16 of 23 points but was outscored 13-7 in

the fourth quarter. When we are in sync, our shots started falling,Akpan said. At the end, we lost our composure and fell apart at crunch time. Gonzales did a good job of coming back, Van Auken said. They were getting some good opportunities. We were able to make some key stops and a couple of kids made plays in the fourth quarter. Savannah Martinez, Alena Alvarez and Brooke Hester made baskets early in the first quarter to get ahead 9-0. Tyhanna Mejia also added some points to the scorebook and Nixon-Smiley forged a 15-0 lead.

The Lady Apaches got their first basket as Sheridan Tate got a rebound and fed Tajerrica Smith for the field goal. The Lady Apaches got the first four points of the second quarter as Smith converted two free throws and made a jumper, helped by some defensive rebounds by Ericka Hernandez. Alvarez assisted on two Martinez buckets to push Nixon-Smileys lead to 19-6 and they finished the second period with four of five points as Gonzales shooting woes continued although the Lady Apaches did a solid job of getting rebounds.

I wish all of you a Happy New Year. Try to sit down and list all of the things that you are thankful for in your life. Hopefully you can find more things to give thanks for than not. One person suggested taking a jar and punching a slit in the lid wide enough to push a scrap of paper through. Keep a pad and pencil nearby so you wont have to hunt for one. When you think of something to be thankful for, write it down and put it in the jar. At the end of the year take them out and read them. PRAYER TIME: Judy

Waelder ISD to salute school board members


WAELDER January is School Board Recognition Month and Waelder Independent School District is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools. School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child, said Mark Weisner, Superintendent. In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students. They bear responsibility and oversight in Waelder ISD for an annual budget of + 3 million dollars; 315 students, in grades Pre-K to 12; more than 54 employees; and a single campus. Preparing todays students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their com-

turned out good in October. Joe says to keep him on the prayer list because all those prayers are what get him those good reports. Prayers are powerful things and change lives every day. And Joe has done a lot of laughing with his grandson lately too. Jake is the apple of his Pappys eye. I think there was something about Jake getting a play set for Christmas this year and I think the grandparents had something to do with this and at least with putting it together. We need to pray for the family of Kenneth Austin Brooks, Sr. Mr. Brooks lived in and all around in this area pastoring Assembly of God Churches from a young age onward. We also need to pray for those who are losing their homes in Gonzales to fire. Things really got out of con-

trol again today on Hamilton Street. Luckily the occupant got out of the house in time. Please be careful. Heaters are being turned on and it is dry outside. I think that practically everyone I talked to this last weekend had a headache. This Norther that blew in had a lot of wind packed behind it. When it hit it packed a lot of punch and leaves went flying everywhere. All of a sudden the news casts are talking about leaf blowers. My daddy would have laughed at that one. Then he would have had another good laugh by saying yeah and there are enough feral hogs rooting in the bar ditch down the road and in our pastures to break up all the leaves that need breaking up. Those people up there living in that concrete dont know what they are doing anyway. My dad-

dys personal opinion was that someone had to live up north in the cold and that someone had to live in the cities like San Antonio and he sure as the world was glad that it wasnt him. So I guess that I will suffer with the sinus from cedar and up and down barometric pressure and happily live in the country where the deer and the antelope play. They had some good soups over at the Monthalia United Church Parish Hall after church last Sunday. I was told that Betty Fink had a delicious creamy chickengreen chili soup and that Gladys Lindemann had chicken soup with Creole flavoring. There were many other kinds of soup with lots of different kinds of cornbread, some sandwiches, and other extra garnishments. Happy New Year and God Bless.
