Kubecka identified a few changes to the
improvement plan. The only area this campus
did not meet federal requirements was in
the Special Education Reading; therefore
specifically indicated improvement on this one
area for the future. Also, one of the additions
Kubecka highlighted was the implementation of
‘Texas Plays 60’ which is the National Football
League campaign which encourages kids to be

Kubecka mentioned the Techno Sharks

ISD campuses received a ‘Met Standard’
accountability rating with a minimum in each
subject of 55% achievement in Reading, Math,
Science, and Social Studies.
However, Federal accountability requirements
are steeper with a 79% achievement requirement.
All campuses, except for the Junior High, did not
achieve in all socioeconomic subpopulations.
Mumme explained that the percentages were
not significant enough to warrant any provisions
besides watching over these areas in the future
and inclusion of these socioeconomic subpopulations on Campus Improvement Plans
for the next year.

City sales tax rebates
down 26% from last year
BY BRANDI G. WEST
Palacios Beacon
The City of Palacios has
received a sales tax rebate
check in the amount of
$56,604 from the State of
Texas Comptroller of Public
Accounts.
Rebates received in
November reflect sales during
the month of September and
reported to the state in October.
The state of Texas, contrary
to Palacios, continues to
economically remain ahead
of last year in sales. “Strong
growth in sales tax receipts
was apparent across all major
economic sectors,” said State

cios coastal assets in balance
with environmental and community resources. Not only
were the ideas and rough designs discussed, the timing
of plans, cycle of grants, and
master plan were presented
as a package to be worked
up and pursued. The project
was suggested that it be completed in phases over several years and grant funding
cycles. There was discussion
on possible grant funding
available for the entire beach
nourishment and enhancement project. A master plan
would need to be in place and
ready for submission by May
2015 for possible selection in
September 2015. The project
presented will be discussed
further at a future meeting.
Comptroller Susan Combs.
Combs’ press release
indicated sales tax revenue
in October was $2.41-billion,
more than 12.9 percent
compared to October 2013.
For the calendar year
Palacios has received rebates
totaling $613,126 which is
nearly 26% less than the
$826,359 received at this time
in 2013.
The total sales tax is from
that money that the State
Comptroller sends rebates to
cities, counties, transit systems
and special taxing districts.

USDA Rural Development will hold a community-wide discussion for those interested in the Rural Energy for America Program, which provides
financial assistance to rural businesses and agricultural producers interested in pursuing renewable
energy or energy efficiency projects. The meeting
will take place Nov. 19 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
in the South Club Room of the Bay City Service
Center, 2105 Avenue M in Bay City.
As many U.S. farmers are discovering, renewable energy is the new cash crop of the 21st century.
Renewable energy and energy efficiency systems
provide a significant opportunity to increase local
revenue and the economic yield of land while bolstering the local job market. Energy efficiency improvements are a useful tool for increasing farm or
business productivity while reducing costs. Small
businesses are also discovering the advantages renewable energy and energy efficiency projects can
have on their bottom line. A decrease in the cost
of refrigeration or lighting can add to the profit
margin of small rural businesses and allow them
to flourish and expand. By investing in energy efficient equipment, agricultural producers and rural
small businesses can enjoy savings and increased
reliability for years to come.
USDA Rural Development provides financial assistance in the form of grants and guaranteed loans
to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to purchase renewable energy systems or
make energy efficiency improvements through the
Agency’s Renewable Energy for America Program
(REAP). REAP offers funds for farmers, ranchers
and rural small businesses to purchase and install
renewable energy systems and make energy-efficiency improvements.
Many projects have been funded throughout
Texas under the REAP program. This funding was
used for projects ranging from installation of solar
and wind renewable energy sources, improving ir-
rigation systems, upgrades to air conditioning and
refrigeration units, and retrofitting poultry houses
with more energy efficient equipment.
Grants can fund up to 25% of a project’s total eligible costs, and are limited to $500,000 for renewable energy projects or $250,000 for energy efficiency improvements. Grants as low as $2,500 for
renewable energy projects and $1,500 for energy
efficiency projects, will be considered. Guaranteed
loans can fund up to 75% of a project’s total eligible costs, with a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $25 million.
All agricultural producers, including farmers and
ranchers, who derive 50% or more of their gross
income from agricultural operations are eligible.
Businesses in a rural area which meets the Small
Business Administration size standards can also
apply. A private entity, a rural utility, and rural

Chamber hosts annual
Seaside Holiday Dec. 6 on
lawn of the Luther Hotel
Thanksgiving will soon
be here, and immediately
after Turkey Day sights and
sounds around town will be
welcoming Christmas.
So before ‘It’s beginning to
look a lot like Christmas’ in the
City by the Sea, be sure to put
on your calendar December 6;
this year’s Seaside Holiday.
The evening festivities on
the lawn of the Historic Luther
Hotel begin at 6 p.m. with
the Palacios Guitar Academy
hitting the stage with a festive
line-up. Santa Clause will be
arriving at 6:30 upon his North
Pole Express shrimp boat
and then San Texas Bound,
Palacios’ own Ernie Aparicio,
Madeline Aparicio, David
Aparicio, Steffan Kruse, and
Sam Schulman hit the stage.
This Texas Country music
will put all in festive cheer
while photos with Santa begin
and people sway to the tunes
while eating, drinking and
being merry.
Palacios is the only place
around that welcomes Santa
Clause in a style of its’ own,
as the Jolly Ol’ Gent is ferried
ashore upon a shrimp boat.
Children will enjoy their free
picture with Santa, stocking
filled with goodies and taking
home a new First Book.
This event is brought to
you by the Palacios Chamber
of Commerce. For more
information or to volunteer
call the Palacios Chamber at
420 Main St. or call 972-2615.

“The idea is to introduce
students to various health
topics and careers, and help
them understand through
hands-on activities what is
involved in each career so
they can decide if they want
to pursue it,” Dr. Chapa said.
Science Exploration kits
bring science to life.
“The health exploration
kits are a great way to help
make science come alive,”
Dr. Chapa said. “They allow
science teachers to take the
topics they are teaching in
the classroom and make them
more realistic through handson activities. For example,
the ‘Exploring Medicine and
the Cardiovascular System
Kit’ contains stethoscopes,
digital blood pressure monitors, a heart model, a portal
electrocardiogram machine
and sound cards with recorded heart sounds. Students will
be able to hear what a normal
heartbeat and a heart murmur
sound like. They learn about
the anatomy and physiology
of the heart, cardiac pathology and cardiology-focused
careers.”
Dr. Chapa has developed
similar kits for science teachers in the Rio Grande Valley
and Laredo area to check out
and use in their classrooms.
Enriching Science
Education in Rural
Communities
Gail Purvis, executive director of the Trull Foundation
said, “Living in rural Texas,
our kids don’t usually have
the opportunity to do these
types of activities. What we
are trying to do is to expand
the students’ awareness of
all of the different health careers.”
According to Purvis, due to
a large immigrant population
and many residents earning
a living with seasonal occupations such as fishing and
agriculture, 43 percent of
Palacios residents have not
graduated from high school
or earned a GED. The science
curriculum, mentoring and
hands-on activities can open
students’ eyes to educational
and career opportunities they
may not have considered.
“We have a small hospital here with a primary care
physician, a nurse practitioner, and lab and X-ray facilities,” explained Purvis, who
also serves on the Palacios
Community Hospital Board.
“I became involved with
the hospital board because
we wanted to maintain local
health care for our community to make sure we have 24hour medical care available.
Our hospital plays a critical
role by stabilizing and providing care, and transporting
serious cases to Matagorda
Regional Medical Center 30
minutes away.
“Sometimes we have a difficult time recruiting health
care staff with experience,”
she explained. “That’s another reason the Trull Foundation is interested in seeing
that our students are exposed
to the health professions. We
want them to come back and
practice in rural Texas.”
Dr. Chapa added, “We have
been coordinating the Health
Professions Fair & Science
Expo for 12 years. Our office
facilitates student visits to
307 Henderson • Palacios • 361-972-2273
our campus, as well as volunteering and mentoring opportunities. We also have summer research internships for
high school students and undergraduate college students
who are interested in health
careers. We are looking forward to a close relationship
with Palacios ISD and appreciate the funding the Trull
Foundation is providing to
support this.”

Weatherize your house
This week’s tip: Weatherize your house You wouldn’t
set sail in a leaky boat, right?
So why would you let your
heating and cooling escape
from leaks in your house?
Sealing air leaks around
your home, combined with
adding more insulation, can
help you maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and
save money. A few easy steps
can save you as much as 10
percent on your annual energy bills.
Even a beginner can make
simple fixes, such as replacing weather stripping on
doors and caulking around
windows. Some bigger jobs
might include sealing leaks
and adding insulation in your
attic. The payoff in annual
savings: $180

air and water clean, conserve
water and energy, and reduce

The Texas Department of
Public Safety (DPS) is urging
Texans to begin preparing
for possible winter weather,
which can impact the state
during the coming days and
months.
“Winter weather can disrupt and endanger the lives
of Texans in all parts of the
state, and residents should
prepare their cars and homes
now for possible storms and
freezing temperatures this
season,” said DPS Director
Steven McCraw. “The best
defense against a potential
dangerous situation is early
preparation.”
DPS offers the following
tips for staying safe during
possible winter weather:
• Monitor local weather
broadcasts and follow up-tothe-minute weather conditions, at http://www.weather.
gov/.
• On icy roads, drive
slowly and increase distance
required for stopping, and
avoid using cruise control.
• Watch for downed trees
and power lines across roads.
If power is out, treat all intersections as four-way stops.
• Make sure your vehicle is
properly maintained before
any trip.
• Keep your gas tank full.
• Avoid traveling when
sleet, freezing rain or snow is

The Badgers drove into Tiger territory as

In need of a stand, the Tiger defense delivered and forced the Badgers to turn the ball
over on downs at the Tidehaven 29.
With 1:06 left in the game, Villarreal
worked his magic (as he had all game long)

“I’m proud of the heart of the kids. To come
back and fight back,” said Mascheck.
The Tigers dominated the game from a
yardage standpoint with 197 though the air
and another 145 on the ground compared to
Karnes City’s 274 total yards.
Villarreal finished the game with 86 yards
and three touchdowns on 22 carries and completed 18 of 25 passes for 197 yards. He also
returned a punt 40 yards for a touchdown and
blocked an extra point kick.
Roderick Fisher reeled in six passes for 63
yards. Taska-Genzer caught four balls for 71
yards and Jacob Galvan had 31 yards on three
receptions. Brandon Brune and Fitzgerald
each caught two balls for 16 yards.
Fizgerald tacked on 54 yards and a touchdown on nine rushing attempts.
The Tigers closed out the season with a 7-4
record, Tidehaven’s first seven win season
since 1998.
“I can’t say enough good things about our
seniors,” said Mascheck.
“Their play, determination and leadership
was the driving force behind this successful
year. They will be remembered as the class
that turned the Tidehaven football program
around. Their leadership will propel us to
greater things in the future. They showed the
other kids how to perform and compete.”

Sharks get taste of hoops in scrimmage
With just four days of practice, the Shark basketball
teams scrimmaged the Brazos
Cougars last Friday.
Shark coach Trent Weixelman reported his varsity
Sharks faired very well in
their first action on the basketball court.
“We outscored Brazos easily in the scrimmage and I was
very proud of the intenisty of
the defense. We really got after it on that side of the ball
which will lead to lots of
points on the offensive side,”
said Weixelman.
“We’re returning six kids
off last season’s team, which
will help us when everyone
gets healthy,” commented
Weixelman.
Seeing action last Friday
were Weixelman’s returning
players Justice Acosta, Sam
Schulman, Justin Filip and
Miguel Gutierrez.
The Sharks are missing a
third of the returnees with
Cameron Sides sidelined with
a broken tibia and Jackson
Kelley still out, but Weixelman is confident that upon
their return, the Sharks will be
at full stride.
“We are looking for some
help from Troy Lewis and
David Garza this season. In
the scrimmage, I was able to
bring up a few JV kids to play
with us and I was very excited
how they performed.”
Weixelman noted he will
continue to evaluate and see if
any will be able to contribute
on the varsity level.
“Having a deep bench will
only benefit us later in the season.”
On the program as a whole,
Weixelman said, “I’m proud
of the direction the program is
going, with 38 kids playing.”
The Shark freshmen squad
looked “very good’ according
to Weixelman and handled
Brazos ‘very well’ in the controlled scrimmage.

threats and are going to be
able to score lots of points this
season. They have the ability
to press and apply pressure
which will create turnovers.

buckets’.

Sharks Win Bi-District Honors
Defeat Floresville in Exciting 14-12 Squeaker at Refugio Friday Nite
In reviewing last week’s game in which
the Sharks, champions of District 25-AA defeated the Floresville Tigers, champions of
District 26-AA, for bi-district honors by the
score of 14-12. Coach Charles Shreve state
that we were very fortunate to defeat this
fine team. They were well coached, and by
all means fine sportsmen as football players
and spectators.
We feel like our boys played a fine game
and came though with their assignments
when we really had to play ball.
Shrove listed as outstanding for the week,
Robbie Shelton, James Gibson and James
Dismukes, and from there went down the entire roster.
The Sharks opened the scoring mid-way in
the first quarter when Robbie Shelton went
over for his first of two touchdowns from the
13-yard line. This scoring drive was begun
when James Dismukes intercepted a Floresville pass on his own 25 yard line and being
perfect blocking returned the ball to the Flreosville 25-yard line. They picked up a first
down on the hard running of Royce Brune,
Jerry Haynes, Ricky Conrad and Shelton.
Douglas Kubecka, kicking without shoes
split the uprights to place the Sharks ahead
7-0. They remained in front the rest of the
game only by a slim margin as Floresville
scored the second TD of the game but failed
on their 2-point try.
Shelton picked up his second touchdown
in the third quarter, and again Kubecka split
the uprights to take a 14-6 lead.
The Sharks saw this lead diminish as the
Tigers roared back to score another touchdown and completed a pass to the end zone
for two points, only to have the two points
erased by a holding penalty.
Penetrations were even with the Tigers
leading in first downs 13, to the Sharks 11.
The Tigers had 235 yards in total rushing
compared to the Sharks’ 164 yards.
Shelton carried 15 times for 81 yards;
Brune 6 times for 34 yards; Conrad 6 for 27
yards; and Haynes 12 for 22 yards.
Shelton passed three times and failed to
connect. He punted four times for a 39.5 yard
average.

just need to figure out how to
convert them all into points.”
