Fourth quarter takes its toll
as the Eagles fall to Mason
Debbie Kistler
The Junction Eagle
Last Friday’s contest with
the Mason Punchers started
with a disaster. The crowd
wasn’t even completely seated
when a Mason defender got to
the Eagles’ junior quarterback,
Brad Sandlin, and stripped
the ball. Mason recovered
and scored three plays later.
Mason-6, Junction-0 Wow!
This would be the first of
several disasters to befall the
Junction Eagles in this annual
match between longtime rivals.
To their credit, the Junction
Eagles came back fighting,
pounding out 72 yards to the
Puncher 23 yardline. Running
backs Ty Stapp and Brayden
Schulze, behind the Eagles’
offensive line, took turns
grinding out the yardage. Then
the Mason defense stopped the
Eagles’ ground game. Sandlin
found senior tight end Charlie
Craig with a short pass. Then,
Senior Eagle Tyler Wilson (12) outleaps his Mason defender and pulls down a pass from on fourth and 13, as Sandlin
quarterback Brad Sandlin. Wilson’s reception gained the Eagles 31 yards.
scrambled to find an open
receiver, he was buried by a
mob of purple jerseys, stopping the drive and giving the
ball back to the Punchers.
Mason started the next
drive on its own 29, but Tyler
Wilson and Kade Wimberley
broke through the line and buried the Puncher quarterback
Dylan Estes for a loss. Then
Dewayne Stewart knocked
down a pass. The Punchers
gave up five yards on a false
start penalty call. Wilson
roared through the line to sack
the Mason QB. On fourth and
22, the boys in purple punted.
Miffed at having its offense
contained, the Puncher defense
returned the favor. Stapp got
nine yards in three tries, but the
Eagles couldn’t convert and
had to punt.
On Mason’s next drive, the
Punchers gave up 30 yards on
false start, holding and personal foul calls. Sandlin, Stewart,
Mizael Sauceda, Wimberley,
Trevor Brawley, Ducie
Carrington, Craig and Stapp
were all successful in limiting the Punchers. On fourth
and 27, at the Junction 34, the
Punchers turned the ball over
on downs.
The Eagles’ next drive
took seven plays, covered
63 yards and tied the score
6 to 6. After Schulze went
for a 12-yard scamper, Stapp
broke through the middle for
38. Rigo Rosas caught a short
pass, then Stapp ran in from
the four. Wimberley’s kick
didn’t go, but the Eagles were
back in contention. Junction-6,
Mason-6.
On the kickoff return, Danny
Campbell slammed into the
ball carrier. The oval ball came
loose, but a Mason player
recovered it. Robert Young,
Agustin Fuentes and Wilson
held the Punchers, sending the
players to their locker rooms in
a dead heat.
After the Mason band performed, the Golden Eagle band
entertained the crowd with
music from Journey. Senior
drum majors Kilee Wilham
and Coreigh Lawhon led the
group as it played “Stone in
Love” and “Faithfully”, followed by the JHS school song
and fight song. The new band
director is Adrian Alonso.
After the halftime break,
Mason struck immediately.
Puncher Chance Stockbridge
took the R. Fuentes boot at the
25 and ran 75 yards to score.
With a good kick, the Punchers
pulled ahead of the stunned
Eagles 13 to 6.
A fired-up Puncher defense
roared on the field to capitalize
on the advantage. After Stapp
gained five and Craig caught
a 24-yard pass, Mason’s D
shut the Eagles down. Stapp
got hit at the line; Sandlin was
sacked for a loss; then Stapp
got caught in the backfield.
Rosas put a heavy boot to the
ball and Sauceda tackled the
Mason ball carrier immediately.
Again, to their credit, the
Eagles came back strong. The
Punchers sent their star running back, David Mora, at the
Eagles’ D again and again,
and tried several pass plays,
but after seven tries (and a
15-yard personal foul penalty),
the Punchers had to punt.
Stapp got the first call and
brought Junction fans to their
feet, weaving, dodging and
shaking off would-be tacklers
for 30 yards. Then Wilson
grabbed a 31-yard pass, with
a Puncher defender in his face.
Even with a 15-yard personal
foul penalty, the Eagles tied
the score in seven plays, when
Stapp ran to the right and
angled into pay dirt, with three
minutes left in the third quarter. A good Wimberley kick
See Eagles on Page 5
A fine defensive play by the Eagle defensive back Dewayne Stewart (80) robs this Mason
receiver of what could have well been a six-point reception.
Junior Eagle Danny Campbell (9) has the kick-off return covered. This hit could be heard
in the back row of the grandstands. Close behind Campbell on the play are Dylan Edison
(61) and Dewayne Stewart (80).
Junction’s annual Labor Day Kow Kick proved once again to be a great place to be for both the young and the young at heart. At the left Hagen Braswell and Shailee Dale proudly wear
their crowns as the new Little Mister and Little Miss Kimble County. To the right, Julius W. and Florence Ellen Murr display their certificate as being the couple married the longest
attending the event; it is an award they take home on a yearly basis. The couple has been married for 67 years.

Meanderings
by Frederica Wyatt
In less than four months,
we will see the dawning of
the year 2011, an historic
time marking the 175th birthday anniversary of the great
area known as Texas. Kimble
County Historical Commission
will welcome suggestions on
how YOU want our County
to recognize this important
time. Our county was a part
of Bexar County until the
creation of Kimble in 1858
when this area was officially
attached to Gillespie County
until 1875. During the latter
year, our judicial matters were
handled by Menard County.
In January of 1876, the organization of our county became
official, and Kimbleville was
selected as the county seat.
Shortly, thereafter the government headquarters were
moved to Denman City, later
known as Junction City until
1894, at which time the “City”
was dropped from the county
seat’s name.
With sadness, I chronicle
the passing of Edward James
“Jay” Hardin, a person dear
to my heart. I shall always
remember his friendship, his
captivating smile, the gifts of
fresh vegetables from his garden, and the fish garnered on
his trips to O. H. Ivie. My
condolences are extended to
Becky, James, Laverne, and
the other members of his family.
Saturday morning, September 11, beginning at 10:00
a.m., a program will be held
at the Falls Ranch Cemetery
to honor the Confederate service of Gaston Rayner (18391884). We are indebted to
James and Dixie Gartrell and
to Mike McDougall for their
wonderful cooperation in
making the event an outstanding one. Members of the Sons
of Confederate Veterans and
Order of Confederate Rose
will be in charge of the ceremony.
During the program, a
moment of silence will be
observed in memory of the
2,993 persons killed in the
September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. All Americans are
requested to have a moment of
prayer in observance of Patriot
Day, designated by President
George W. Bush. Remember
to fly the United States flag!
Patriot Day is not to be
confused with Patriot’s Day
commemorating the Battle of
Lexington and Concord fought
April 19, 1775. Paul Revere’s
midnight ride is a part of the
history of the famous revolutionary battle.
A few years ago, the late
Marguerite King Stevenson
told me her niece, the former
Jackie Braley, a 1955 JHS
graduate, was a member of the
clergy at the Old North Church
in Boston, Massachusetts.
Members
of
Chanes
Chapter, Daughters of the
American Revolution, want
to remind each of you to
observe Constitution Day on
September 17. The DAR urges
everyone to fly your flag that
day!
George Meine of Fredericksburg spent some time
at Kimble Historical Museum
during the week. He wanted to visit the gravesite of
one of his Tumlinson kinsman, Elizabeth Taylor, in the
Junction Cemetery, and I was
glad to point him in the right
direction. The TumlinsonTaylor families have abundant
history spread across the pages
of Texas history.
George asked about the
annual Taylor Reunion (this
year’s event will be September
25 in Cuero.) At his request, I
gave him a copy of the talk I
had given at the 1999 reunion.
Another important event on
September 25 will be the annual Homecoming at London.
Fay Barker was accompanied by her sister, Cora of
Houston, when they toured
the museum in late week. I
have been assisting Fay in her
search of the history of her
ancestors.
One of my telephone calls
during the week was from
John Bumpus of Lampasas,
whose wife is the former Jane
Munn, daughter of the late
Max Munn and granddaughter
of John S. and Bertie Turner
Munn.
Another long-distance query
arrived from Sue Christon of
Stanton, who is still seeking information on Humble
Oil and Refining Company’s
Station B near the counties’
lines of Sutton and Kimble.
Margaret Burt Gaver remembers when Ella Stevenson
Tinsley brought her students
from the Station B school for an
assembly program at Junction.
When Richard C. and Laurena
Mitchell Callan, the parents
of the late Ruby Lee Craven,
retired at Station B, they built
a home in Junction.
Several persons have telephoned to report they plan
to attend Saturday’s program
at Falls Ranch, and Gaylan
Harrison and Chap Traylor are
formulating plans for a memorable event. James Chapman
of Fredericksburg hopes to
bring a number of Terry’s
Texas Rangers re-enactors,
and William Scott and others from the Alabama Red
Rovers group in San Antonio
are expected to be present
for Saturday’s ceremony. Joe
Ginn of Fredericksburg reported some members from the
Hill County Camp, SCV, plan
to assist the Frontier Guards
Camp, SCV, with the dedicatory program.
Harold D. Jobes of Cedar
Park plans to motor to the
Harper area for the program.
He remembers his grandfather Duderstadt telling bits
of history concerning Gaston
Rayner and the circumstances
surrounding the latter’s death.
I also visited, via telephone,
with Carrie Tarr of Harper,
whose ranch adjoins the Falls
Ranch and who believes that
was the actual site where
Rayner was shot to death.
Another caller was Gene
Bode of Harper, who will be
on hand for the day’s activites.
He relayed information his latest book is almost ready for
the publisher. The book will
contain biographical sketches
of persons Gene had known
through the years, including
several Kimble Countians.
Jay Taylor, another friend
from Harper, is busily planning an October 30 Ranger
Cross ceremony at the Spring
Creek Cemetery but plans to
attend the Rayner service. He
said his wife, Charlene, is on
a trip to Montana and will
probably not be home by next
Saturday.
I telephoned Gayle Ake at
Noxville, but she was unsure
whether she and Gene Royce
will be able to join us on
the 11th. The Akes were busy
during the weekend with the
Labor Day festivities at Harper
Pioneer Park. Their son,
Colonel Robert Ake, is presently serving in Afghanistan,
and we all hope he will be
home before long.
My calendar reflected
September 2, 2010, was
the 65th anniversary of V-J
Day. I well remember when
the United States declared a
victory over Japan. My oldest brother, Andrew Matt
Burt, had entered the service in February, 1943, and
had no furlough home until
December, 1945, after the
war ended. He had already
re-enlisted for the Army of
Occupation in Europe, and
was sent there at the end of
his 90-day leave. Another of
my brothers, Fane Lee Burt,
was with the Armed Forces
in Europe and was headed
home while Andrew was enroute there. Their paths were
not to cross from 1943 until
1949. Andrew received a
Purple Heart during the War,
and he and Fane both received
Bronze Star medals for their
WWII services.
My week was brightened

Book Review
By Rosanna Stapp
Here Burns
My Candle
By Liz Curtis Higgs
This novel takes place during the 1700’s in Edinburgh,
Scotland. Lady Marjory Kerr,
her two sons and their wives
live on the fifth floor of a ten
story building.
Lady Elisabeth and Lord
Donald Kerr have been married two years but have produced no offspring. Andrew
and Janet Kerr have only been
married six months, and they
hope to have the first grandchild.
Prince Charlie, the rebel
prince, wants to take back the
throne from King George. He
takes Edinburgh and charms
many of the residents. When
the Kerrs decide to back him,
they have no idea how this
will change their lives.
This is an historical novel
that has been well researched.
Ms. Higgs brings 18th century
Scotland to life.
You’re getting close
to a BIG ONE!
Happy birthday,

Golf News
by Ruth James
In a recent Guide to San
Antonio, three pages are devoted to the 60 golf courses in
San Antonio. Even a town with
as many tourist attractions as
found in San Antonio, the city
fathers realized that a golf
course is an essential calling
card to attract tourists.
Junction has had a golf course
for 74 years, maintained by
golfers. All greens, fairways
and bridges have been tended and cared for, and replaced
when needed, by the club membership. So many changes in
membership through the years
but always reliable golfers and
workers to tend the course.
We have just begun a new golf
year and are again blessed with
willing and capable personnel:
good officers, good board members, and good pro shop workers. Andy MacPhail is a real
asset to the club; Amy Vance
has been helping with pro shop
duties, and we’ve needed the
extra help because we have registered visitors from Midland,
Houston, New Braunfels,
New Mexico, Fredericksburg,
Odessa, Austin and as far away
as Utah just to name a few.
The Chamber of Commerce
Tourism board has helped with
advertising, and we appreciate all they have done for us.
We especially need help paying bills, keeping the equipment
repaired and purchasing new
equipment. Our Tourism board
recognizes the appeal a golf
course has for a community,
and we want to keep the course
challenging and well-kept for all
our hometown and out-of-town
golfers.
And last week what a blessing that inch of rain that fell on
the course was. It did choose
Thursday to fall which canceled
out the weekly scramble, but
nobody was really complaining
about that.
The line to the airways ticket
booth was long, and a fellow
in a line parallel to mine had a
golf bag slung over his shoulder. We started talking, and he
brightened when I admired his
golf bag. He proudly stated that
he was on the PGA tour and
asked me if I was a golfer.
I shook my head, “I used to
golf, but I quit because I wasn’t
very good. I shot consistently
in the lower seventies.” There
was a long, low intake of breath,
then, “The lower seventies?”
Yes I admitted. “Consistently?”
he queried admiringly. “Yes on
every hole,” I confessed.

My Opinion
by John Parker
Up and down, round and
about the political shenanigans
of the people who wish to rule
a nation do roll on. The rules
set up on the population are
heavier and more complicated
each time a new set comes out.
The closer the control noose
(or leash) is tightened, the less
the population has as personal
freedom.
My opinion is that few if
any of the leashed have ever
stopped to ask “why?”! The
tighter the control rope the less
the “original intent”. The why,
of course, is intended to release
the basis of any original intent.
The full and plain “original
intent” is totally obvious: maximum freedom and no leash.
Anybody read the documents
written and promulgated?
Who are the noose makers
who do not understand that the
original intent and the stated
lack of a leash on a free population is totally opposite to the
why and time of the founding fathers! While the popular
vote is important, we are not a
democracy, we are a republic.
Each individual is the bull’seye of freedom, not each vote.
Until and unless the noose
to enlarge the loop of power,
control and rule making is
degraded in the life and freedom of every free American
and not dictated by the present
controllers, this nation as a free
nation will not occur.

A message
from Chief Marvin Ivy
This is my final article in a
series of crime prevention tips.
As I admitted last week, some
of you don’t want to hear it
from me again. Some of you
are convinced that it will never
happen here, and some of you
think I am scolding you when I
write about this.
I am just attempting to put out
some crime prevention ideas
that might come in handy if
you are remodeling anyway. If
you or a loved one are now
living by them self for the first
time, these ideas might serve to
allow you to feel more secure
at night. Last week we talked
about doors and locks.
The other way to get in during
a burglary is usually a window.
Windows are historically kept
closed by a single or double
lock. Both can be enhanced
with the addition of small pins
installed at the edges of the
window frame. These pins can
be nothing more than small
nails cut to stick out slightly.
The holes are drilled through
the inside edge of the window
frame and through the edge of
the sliding part of the window,
but not through the exterior part
of the frame. If the holes are
angled downwards slightly, no
amount of vibration will allow
the nail to slip out. The heads
of the nails allow the pins to be
pulled out in a fire emergency or
when you need to open a win-
dow for ventilation. Additional
holes can be drilled that allow
the window to be locked while
partially open. This is also possible with some aftermarket
replacement windows and is a
good feature to shop for.
Sliding glass doors are in the
same class as windows when
it comes to pinning. Another
solution with sliding windows
or sliding doors is the cut off
broomstick in the sliding track.
That works if your window
was installed correctly with the
exposed part of the track inside
the house. It is possible to buy
after market bars that can drop
down from a bracket and hold
the sliding door closed. These
also need to be of a style that a
child or elderly person can operate them in a fire.
Part of the downside of target
hardening, is the possibility of
making your home look like
a jail. Burglar bars or the old
fashioned iron work covering
up windows are now considered
too much of a danger in fires
to be worth using. Some styles
allow the bars to be released
from inside the home, but I
doubt if they are cost effective.
Cutting shrubs away from
windows is cost effective and
helps to keep your neighbors
involved in protecting your
home. The best tool to prevent
burglaries is a nosey neighbor.
Someone who is around during
Engagement
Announcement
the day, knows your schedule
and your vehicles, and is willing to call you or us if something doesn’t look right is still
the best protection you can get.
Encourage them by letting them
know when you will be away or
if you expect visitors or workers
to be around your place.
Watching out for each other
is what really helps to keep our
crime rate down to the point
where these articles sometimes
seem out of place. Thanks for
reading them anyway, and be
safe here in the land of living
waters.
Frankie Boone of Junction would
like to announce the engagement of
his daughter, Angela Danielle Boone,
to Quinton Drew Murr. Quint is the
son of Jay Murr of Junction and
Judy Holmes of Uvalde.
Wedding plans are set for November
6 in Junction.
The bride-to-be is currently finishing her education degree at Sul
Ross University of Uvalde. Quint is
a recent graduate of Texas A&M
University, and is currently teaching
6th grade math and science at Flores
Elementary.
Eagles
Continued from Page 1
put the score at a 13-13 draw.
This would be the Eagles’
last score, but the Punchers had
Mora set on “go”. He ran over
and around the Eagles D the
next eight of ten plays, moving the Punchers 61 yards to
score. Stewart, Dillon Edison,
Stapp, Wimberley, Wilson,
Brawley, O’Brian Rodriquez,
Jacob Chapman, A. Fuentes
and Carrington made tackles,
but Mason and Mora were rolling. Mason pulled ahead 20 to
13 and never looked back.
With decent field position
on their 25, a chop block penalty pushed the Eagles back to
their own 13 yardline. With the
Junction goal posts just ahead,
the Mason defense got aggressive, sacking Sandlin twice,
backing the Eagles to the onefoot line. On fourth and 34, the
Junction Boys elected to punt,
but the snap sailed over punter
Rosas’ head and out the back
of the endzone, awarding the
Punchers a safety. After the
safety added two points to the
Mason side of the scoreboard,
R. Fuentes had to kick-off
from the Junction 20.
Puncher A. J. Martinez
grabbed the pigskin and hauled
41 yards through Junction’s
kickoff team for Mason’s second kick-off return score and
six more for the Puncher tally.
A good kick put the Eagles at
a 16-point disadvantage, with
the game clock draining.
Deflated, the Eagles offense
made four attempts at the
Puncher D but made only four
yards.
The Punchers took over on
Junction’s 25 yardline and
Mora took only two tries to
draw blood again. Mason-36,
Junction-13
Each team had one more
possession, but got nowhere.

I am fairly new to this area of Texas and have found it to be a
great place in which to live.
One of the most rewarding things I have ever been involved in
is the American Legion of Menard, Texas Post No. 378 and what
they stand for. They have always been for respect to our fallen
soldiers, and those left behind.
There have been so many truly dedicated to the growth of the
American Legion and the betterment of the facilities in order to
provide pleasant conditions as well as a smoke-free environment.
Freedom to celebrate and the ability to have a place in which to
gather that not only provides this environment, but all the comforts
of any nice indoor facility. Local musicians, as well as top name
musicians, cooks, and kitchen help are always giving of their time
and talent for all events, expecting nothing in return except respect.
These meetings are for musicians, friends and family for dancing, visiting and enjoying the music and home-cooked meals. All
of these things are free to the public without exception.
When a need arises for something major, and there are no means
of financial aid and/or insurance, any individual so willing can
volunteer his/her time and money to have a benefit for the one in
need. I might add, this takes a lot of time, people and planning,
but again let us say that this is done for those that are in need.
We the people offer help due to
their poverty stricken situations.
The decisions are not made by
the Legion, but by the community. They strive to be fair and
help all those who cannot help
themselves, endeavoring to give
hope to the otherwise hopeless,
expecting nothing in return, but
“Thank You”. The Sponsors and
The American Legion offer a
place for any needed event, and
The Legion is paid a nominal
fee. All other arrangements, etc
are the responsibility of the volunteers and sponsors.
The American Legion is one
of the backbones of our com-

Although the Eagles had
more first downs, more rushing yards, more passing yards,
more completed passes and
fewer penalties/lost yardage,
the Junction Boys finished the
game with 23 fewer points.
This year’s contest between
the longtime rivals left the
Punchers with the win and the
Eagles with lots to work on.
Head coach Cory Spivey
views the non-district games
as opportunities to expose his
team’s weaknesses and provide targets for improvement.
Coach Spivey said he was
proud of the Eagle defense.
Holding the swift and shifty
All West Texas Mora to 5.04
yards per carry was a hard
night’s work. On Tuesday,
he said his coaches and players had already addressed the
issues with the special teams.
About sustaining their second
loss for the season, Coach
Spivey said, “As long as we
learn and improve each week,
that’s what we’re focused on.”
He said that he doesn’t want
his young players to be satisfied with making the playoffs.
He wants them to think of
making a deep run again this
year.
This Friday at 7:30 p.m., the
Eagles play at Eagle Stadium
again, hosting the Grape Creek
Eagles, a District 2-2A running
team. The hometown Eagles
defense will have to contain
Eli Untermeyer, a 6’1”, 185
lb. senior running back. On
Thursday, the Junction Middle
School football team will play
Grape Creek at home at 5:30
p.m., while the freshman and
junior varsity teams travel to
Grape Creek to play at 5:30
munities offering not only benefits, but a place for private parties
as well as bingo, but most importantly military functions are performed there in honor of any and all military personnel.
Having a place in which to have recreational facilities is a plus
for any area, but especially so for small towns such as Menard. The
Legion has been providing such places for many, many years. They
have labored from the ground up, with every effort, keeping the
insight of a completed project by which the respect fell within the
realm of each and every fallen solider and their families. Also included in this projects completion are facilities for the handicapped.
We would hope this letter will provide a means in which to
inform the public of the benefit the American Legion provides and
by which decisions are made and benefits are given.
God bless the American Legion Post No. 378 signed this date
September 5, 2010 by a US Navy Vet.
And with this being said, the American Legion Volunteers
would like to announce a benefit for JoElla Castleberry on Sunday
Sept. 12, from noon to 4:00 p.m. There will be a pot luck lunch,
50-50 Cash Pot, Silent and Live Auctions, musical entertainment
with the possibility of Justin Trevino entertaining. A food item or
dessert would be appreciated. We so look forward to your attending this benefit and your continued support and attendance in any
and all future gatherings at the American Legion, including regular
Jam Sessions every other Thursday nights.

. .from the Library
by Sylvia Lawler
We at Kimble County
Library are so excited about
an event that is coming up at
the end of this month. You
need to write this date down on
your calendar now – Tuesday,
September 28.
On this date, beginning at
5:30 p.m. everyone, young
and old alike, is invited to
the library for hot dogs, sau-
sage wraps, chips, cookies,
and drinks. While feasting on
the food, Marilyne Cizmich,
a children’s author will be our
guest speaker. This event is
being sponsored by the Library
Board.
Marilyne Cizmich and her
husband live in Kerrville with
their two cats and one dog.
They have four adult children
and ten grandchildren. Mrs.
Cizmich is a retired school
nurse having worked both in
Texas and Alaska. She lived in
the Ukraine for a year.
Her Christian principle children’s books that she has written are based upon her life
experiences in the Ukraine.
Marilyne will be reading two
of her books Sonia, the Church
Cat and How Cora Lost Her
Horn. She will also be sharing
photos and artifacts collected
during her year in the Ukraine.
Also on the September 28,
the library will be display-
ing the new children’s materials received from the Libri
Foundation. A few months
back Kimble County Library
was notified that we would be
the recipient of $1,400 worth
of children’s materials from
the Libri Foundation.
This Foundation, which was
established in 1989 for the
sole purpose of helping rural
libraries, is a nationwide nonprofit organization. The Libri
Foundation donates new, quality, hardcover children’s books
to small, rural public libraries
in the United States through
its BOOKS FOR CHILDREN
program. Since October 1990,
the Foundation has donated
over $4,000,000 worth of new
children’s books to more than
2,800 libraries. Kimble County
Library is very honored to be
one of these libraries.
Again, don’t forget Tuesday,
September 28, to come by the
library to participate in all of
the festivities and at the same
time check out the new children’s materials donated by the
Libri Foundation.

Outdoors
Outback
by Kendal Hemphill
peta Take the Reel
A fellow once told me that
some people are like Slinkys.
They’re not really good for anything, but you just can’t help
but smile when you push them
down the stairs. The folks at
peta are like that.
Once in a while I check out
peta’s website, to see what
total gooberheadedness they’ve
come up with lately. I really
never expect a lot, but the peta
folks almost always surprise
me. This time they’ve just about
outdone themselves. Which is
saying a lot, considering we’re
talking about a bunch of knuckleheads who once tried to get
people to call fish ‘sea puppies.’
One of the latest rants on
the peta site is about a donkey
named Anapka. Strangely, peta
didn’t complain about someone
giving a donkey a hideous name
like Anapka. What they did take
umbrage to was that someone
strapped the donkey to a parasail and gave her a half hour
ride, for a promotional stunt.
The funny thing, when peta
comes out with some strange
thing to complain about, is the
comments after the stories. The
peta site is evidently frequented
by some of the most intellectually challenged people on the
planet. If Bill Engvall has any
of those signs left over, I know
where he can unload them.
Someone named Andrea
wrote “stupids russians.”
Whatever that means. A woman
named Marie wrote “stop stop
hurt donkeys.” And those are
some of the more lucid comments. I’m not even going to
mention the fact that people pay
pretty big bucks to get to go
parasailing, and this donkey got
to do it for free.
Another big peta item of
recent note blasted Kristy Lee
Cook, who was a finalist on
American Idolatry, and now
has her own hunting program
on Versus television. The main
complaint is that Kristy’s show,
Goin’ Country, is mainly about
her and her family traveling
around and hunting. The peta
people object.
Their scathing article says, in
part, “It sounds like she must
have had those tired old defenses of hunting hammered into
her as a kid, because she isn’t
embarrassed to float the incredibly old saw that hunters somehow help animals.”
I’ll just interject, here, the
fact that about 90 percent of
the money used to fund wildlife research, protect habitat,
and enforce game laws comes
directly from hunters. I will also
point out that neither peta, nor
any other animal rights organization, has ever done anything,
not one thing, that helped animals in any way. They spend
their money on ads and websites
claiming to care deeply. Plus
they kill puppies. You can look
it up.
So peta has its collective
knickers in a twist over Kristy’s
hunting show. The story says
Kristy should follow the example Carrie Underwood has set.
Evidently Underwood is a vegetarian. Big whup.
Now, I don’t have anything
against Carrie Underwood, or
her veganness, as long as she
doesn’t slop it on anyone else.
And she’s a very good singer.
You may recall a pretty popular song she came out with a
while back called ‘Jesus Take
the Wheel.’
Well, a fellow named Tim
Hawkins did a parody of Jesus
Take the Wheel called ‘Cletus
Take the Reel,’ and it’s about
a bazillion times better than
the original. You can look it
up on You Tube, but it’s basically the story of Tim fishing
with his friend, Cletus, who was
asleep in the boat. Tim hooks a
big bass, but gets a cramp, and
can’t reel it in. So he throws his
rod up and, well, I just get all
choked up every time I hear it.
But I digress. The comments on the peta website about
Kristy and her hunting show
were probably about what you
would expect from a bunch of
wimps who thoughtlessly murder asparagus. You know, ‘how
horrible,’ ‘how cruel,’ ‘I cried
for days when I heard about
this,’ etc. My favorite was from
someone named litany, who
wrote, and I quote, “well that
was sure not exspected from her
what a disapoinment well i dislike her very much now.”
The real jackpot comes when
the bunny huggers get to taking
shots at each other, as happened
recently when peta ran a story
about John McCain (R-AZ) and
Tom Coburn (R-OK) exposing
government funding of such
stupid research projects as giving cocaine to monkeys. The
peta folks LOVE McCain now,
but when one commented that
we need to worry about humans
first, another one got snippy.
Kelly wrote, “we need to worry
about humans first? Really?
This attitude pretty much sums
up the problem with the world
and why horrific animal abuse
runs rampant. Your speceism
is disgusting and certainly hope
you are not a member of peta.”
Readers sometimes (not
often) tell me I should ease up
on peta, since they’re just trying
to promote what they believe is
right. But when I see stuff like
this I realize I could never, no
matter how hard I tried, point
out the stupidity of these space
cadets as eloquently as they do
it themselves.
To paraphrase Ronald Reagan
– The trouble with our peta
friends is not that they’re ignorant, it’s that they know so much
that just isn’t so . . .
