taxes
going
up
By Jason Clay Jansky
Taxes in Karnes City are
set to increase as city council
members approach finalization of their fiscal year 2011
budget.
The current plan on the
books is to set the property
tax rate at slightly higher than
the “effective” rate, which
is calculated along with appraisal rates to bring the city
the same amount of tax money it collected last year.
Karnes City wants to collect
more money this year, though
council members didn’t specify why during their Tuesday
meeting.
They did vote to hold public hearings which are required by law any time a city
raises taxes, so citizens will
have an opportunity to have
their concerns heard.
“Any time you increase over
the effective tax rate, you have
to have public hearings,” Pippen said.
Concerned citizens can address council during either of
two meetings set for September 8 and September 15. The
floor will be open for comments during both public
hearings.
Council also voted to apply
for $275,000 in Texas Community Development Block
Grant funding.
A 15 percent match will be
required, leaving the city with
a $41,250 obligation that will
be met with 4B corporation
funds, according to discussion.
The money will be used to
renovate Karnes City water

KARNES CITY (Aug 19,
2010) – The NRP Group
LLC, Merced Housing Texas, and the Karnes Coun-
ty Economic and Community Development Corporation
(KCE&CDC) celebrated the
groundbreaking
develop-
ment of a new 80 unit mul- quality, comfortable living at

The press conference,
Apartment Homes, that boast which began at 10 a.m. at the
site of the new development,
1226 S. State Hwy 181/123
1/4 mile south, highlighted
the team’s efforts to improve
the availability of affordable,
quality housing for local residents. The Tierra Pointe
Apartment Homes, which
were designed and orientated
to capitalize on the relationship between the building
site and its surrounding landscape, will feature amenities
that range from a fitness and
computer center to an outdoor swimming pool.
In addition, this $10.7 million complex will offer an after school program for kids
and utilize the services of an
off-duty police officer to patrol the community at various
times. Security features such
as gated entries and exits,
criminal background checks,
and credit checks will create a

Neighborhood watch group forming in Runge
By Jason Clay Jansky
Runge citizens are uniting
together against crime and
asking for help from local citizens.
Organizing a neighborhood watch group, several
citizens are looking for volunteers to help keep watch during the late hours when vandalism, theft, and drug use
cause problems.
“It’s several people around
the whole city. We decided
what we really needed was to
have a neighborhood watch,”
said Larry Dement, one of
the group’s members. “In this
county, we don’t have a lot of
officers and deputies to come
to Runge.”
The issue came before city
council during their Tuesday
meeting and council members decided to allow the
group to have membership
applications available at city
hall.
“It came before the coun-
cil last night. They’re not going to be enforcing anything,
it’s going to be more surveillance. They’ll call in to the
sheriff’s department,” Lott
said. “The main thing I’m
concerned with is their safety. I don’t want any confrontation with any of the people that are doing wrong and
(during the meeting) I made
that clear.”
Runge’s leadership have
been tackling the problem
of a lack of law enforcement
for years. With the sheriff’s
department so far away and
county resources spread thin,
response time to an incident
in Runge is less than favorable.
“I’ve made calls to the chief
deputy (Steve Monsivais).
He’s doing the best he can,
but he doesn’t have the manpower.”
Runge used to employ a
night watchman, but the
town has moved away from
combating the crime prob-
lem with city-hired help.
“The night watchman
doesn’t do any good because
[criminals] can watch the
night watchman. They can
report what they see, but they
have a very narrow vision of
what’s going on,” Lott said.
As for hiring a city marshal
to provide official, local law
enforcement, Lott said there’s
no money in the budget for

sured him there will be money for post-upgrade street

Council also addressed a
letter from the Karnes City
Park Board containing proposals and updates.
Board members expressed
concern with the lack of rain.
“We wondered if sprinklers
could be set out so we don’t
lose grass and plants,” the letter read. “We know cost is an
issue and respect the council’s decision on this, but in
the past the city has been
awesome about watering.
We were fortunate during the
months of June and July (but)
August has not been kind to
us.”
The letter also contained
details about nine trees that
have been purchased and are
waiting on the fall season to
be planted.
“I ‘d hate to see any more
trees planted in park A,” Pippen said. “That area is really
not suitable for trees.”
Council member Leroy
Skloss said he wants the city
to get the trees in the ground
quickly.
“We probably ought to try
to do those trees if we can.
Fall is getting here,” he said.
The letter also addressed
a potential labor donation

that kind of expenditure.
“We’re under budget constraints also. What takes precedence first is your water
and sewer system. Everything
has skyrocketed in cost and
we’re in a recession,” he said.
The neighborhood watch
system is in its beginning
stages, but organizers hope to
set shifts for members to keep
eyes on the Runge city streets.
The problem isn’t epidemic, according to Lott, but a few
bad apples are giving Runge a
bad name, he stressed.
“We’ve got good kids. We’ve
got good people in Runge, it’s
just those 8 or 10 people that
are causing problems. They’re
on drugs. They sleep during
the day and roam at night and
cause problems,” Lott said.
Applications to join the
neighborhood watch group
are available at city hall. Interested parties also can call

counselor, Mary Gail Moody, nurse practitioner at Kenedy Family Practice, Pamela Clark, nurse
practitioner at Karnes Community Health Center, Monica Gwosdz, Karnes County health nurse
and Bernadette Bluhm, Karnes City ISD nurse. The group gathered for a recent breastfeeding
awareness event at the WIC office in Kenedy
Karnes County local health officials come
together to support breastfeeding
Besides the influence of
personal physicians and
practitioners, which is paramount in a mother’s decision
to breastfeed her baby, other local health officials provide the support and education needed as well. Our
school nurses have the opportunity to work with young
mothers and help them with
the challenge of continued
breastfeeding while continuing their education, exclusively for 6 months which is
the current World Health Organization and the Center for
Disease Control recommendation. WIC not only provides the nutrition education
but also the healthy foods required for pregnant, breastfeeding mothers and children. Their Peer Counselor
program provides the personal breastfeeding education,
support, and pumps. Limited funding provides personal items like nursing covers,
nursing bras and pads while
supplies last. *Special thanks
to HEB and Wal-Mart for donating towards our BF Open
House. Call CCSCT-WIC office 830-583-3685 for more

Studies have shown that
many people resist starting insulin when their doctor tells them insulin is needed. They try to postpone it,
asking their doctor to just let
them try harder. Many people
think insulin means they are
a failure. They also may think
managing diabetes with insulin will be just like when they
saw their grandparents struggle with insulin.
Doctors recommend insulin when they believe it is
needed to keep your blood
glucose in the ranges that reduce your risk for complications. On average, the pancreas of a person with diabetes
produces 50 percent less insulin every five years. This
means you may be doing everything your doctor told
you to do, including eating
the right foods in the right
amounts, exercising daily,
and taking diabetes pills, but
your blood glucose is not in
the recommended ranges. If
you are not achieving your
A1C goals, your doctor will
eventually prescribe insulin
for you.
If your blood glucose is out
of range even though you are
trying very hard, most diabe-
tes experts believe you should
not delay starting insulin for
more than three months. If
your blood work still shows
you are out of range, go back
and tell your doctor you are
ready to try insulin.
Insulins today are very different than even a few years
ago. One type will keep a
steady amount of insulin in
your blood for 24 hours with
just one injection—there
are no peaks and valleys to
deal with. You can use a rapid acting type to deal with
the abrupt rise in blood glucose after meals. Insulin pens
make giving yourself the right
dose much easier and with so
much less discomfort than
older methods because the
needles are so thin and sharp.
Many people with diabetes
can give themselves their rapid acting insulin right at the
dinner table in a restaurant
without anyone realizing it.
Some people think they will
never be able to give themselves insulin because they
are frightened by needles.
There are many ways to reduce this fear, and many people have learned how to deal
with these fears.
Others think they will be
unable to travel or do things
they want, like hiking or bike
riding, with insulin because
they have to keep it refrigerated. There are pocket-sized
cool packs that keep insulin bottles or pens adequately cooled even during Texas summers! Just periodically
soaking the cool packs in water allows them to keep insulin cool.
If you want to learn more
about insulin and how to deal
with things like giving yourself an injection, traveling,
doing things you have always
done, or even just doing your
job while taking insulin, consider signing up for the Do
Well, Be Well with Diabetes
five classes that cover nine
different topics. Classes are
taught by volunteer nurses,
dietitians, pharmacists, and
other health professionals
from your community. Texas AgriLife Extension Service,
Karnes/Wilson Counties are
offering free classes starting
September 9. Call the Extension office at 830-780-3906 to
sign up by August 27 to learn
about insulin and the latest
information about managing
type 2 diabetes.
Has your doctor recommended
you start taking insulin?

Pawnee UMC begins 8-week study
Why are there so many different Christian churches?
And why are they so different
from one another? What essential beliefs or practices do
they share in common? As I
learn about the faith of Christians who worship and serve
in ways that seem different or
unfamiliar to me, can I in fact
learn more about my own
faith? These questions and
more will be explored at Pawnee United Methodist beginning September 12, 2010 at
8:30 a.m. The church is beginning an eight-week study
called “Christianity’s Family
Tree: What Other Christians
Believe and Why,” and you are
invited to join them.
According to Rev. Beth Tatum, pastor of Pawnee UMC,
“These are questions that
grip our attention, and yet
often we don’t discuss them.
We want to explore what God
might be saying to us through
the lives of other Christians,
and we hope to do this in a
setting of sensitivity, respect,
and mutual learning, that
the family of believers may
be strengthened.” Each week
will feature a different branch
of Christianity including Orthodoxy, Catholic, Lutheran,
Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal and Methodist.
This special event will include elements of worship,
sermons, and a small-group
study that features videos, Bible study, and discussion. The
study, published by Abing-
don Press, was developed by
the Reverend Adam Hamilton, pastor of the Church of
the Resurrection in Leawood,
Kansas, and is intended for
anyone who has an interest in
learning about different denominations and faith traditions within Christianity. Rev.
Tatum will lead the study and
share personal ecumenical
experiences including Greek
Orthodox worship on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, living with the Roman Catholic
monks at St, Gregory’s monastery in Shawnee, Oklahoma
and Pentecostal revivals.
Pawnee UMC is located on
FM 798 near FM 72. For more
information, contact Rev. Tatum at 361-375-2221 or [email protected]

Mooning brought
a paddling in court

On occasion, this space carries a message
suggesting one of the biggest problems in
public education today is, sadly, lack of parental guidance or inspiration.
Times change and, without advocating
the methods in this story, the incident does
underscore what can happen when parents
are called into account for the attitude and
performance of their children.
Almost 50 years ago, Roy and Ginny Kelly were raising three daughters near Stafford in rural Fort Bend County. Roy and his
dad, Buck, had a used car business but Roy
also felt an obligation to civic duty so he got
elected justice of the peace.
He took the detached garage at his home
and turned it into a Western-themed courtroom, complete with a sign proclaiming:
“Judge Roy Kelly, The Law West of Stafford,”
a take-off on a famous Texas frontier character, Judge Roy Bean, The Law West of the
Pecos.
One summer Sunday afternoon, I was
visiting the Kelly home when the judge received a call from the Highway Patrol (as
Texas Department of Public Safety troopers
were known then). They informed the judge
they were bringing a carload of teenaged
boys to his court for an incident on a Fort
Bend stretch of highway between Houston
and Freeport, where there’s a nice beach.
Within minutes, two DPS patrol cars arrived escorting an older model Chevy
station wagon with several surfboards
strapped atop it.
A DPS sergeant strolled toward us while
the other three troopers rounded up six
young men from the station wagon and
herded them toward Kelly’s courtroom.
“Judge, we were just sittin’ on the side of
the highway in our cars because the traffic
coming back from Freeport was so thick, we
couldn’t work it,” said the sergeant with a
grin. “All of a sudden here comes this speeding station wagon with a bare butt against
the window, so we stopped ‘em and brought
‘em here.”
“Bring ‘em into the courtroom,” a pokerfaced Kelly said.
Once everyone was situated in the courtroom, Kelly questioned each young man
Opinion
about their roles and positions in the station wagon. Upon getting a confession from
the youngster who’d dropped his pants, as
he said, “to moon a carload of girls,” Kelly ascertained that the boys were from Bellaire, not far from his courtroom. He got
“mooning” boy’s father’s name and phone
number and called him. He told the man he
had his son and some of his friends in his
courtroom and wondered if the father could
drive out. The father quickly agreed.
When the father arrived, Kelly told him
the full story and announced that he’d
found the man’s son guilty of indecent exposure and was fining him $115.50, including court costs.
“Now,” Kelly said as he turned his head
and looked at a paddle hanging on the wall
behind his bench, “is there anything about
further punishment you’d like to do?”
The father nodded and said, “Yessir,
Judge, there sure is. Now, if y’all don’t mind
clearing the courtroom, I’ll take care of it.”
The other teen boys, the troopers, the
judge and I all exited the courtroom and we
quickly heard the paddle being applied vigorously.
In a few minutes, the father and son appeared outside and the man announced to
Kelly, “Judge, I can’t guarantee he’ll never do
that again, but if he does it’ll be with a red
butt.”
In subsequent months, Kelly took more
actions about parental responsibility. The
school district was having a problem with
children with lice in their hair and the administration could get no help from parents
in rectifying this public health problem, so
they sought the judge’s input.
He told them to expel children who didn’t
correct the problem after warnings and letters home. Then, he said, after being out of
school the prescribed time under truancy
laws and not returning clean, he’d drag the
parents into court and fine and/or jail them
for their child’s truancy.
After several rounds of those legal procedures, the lice problem and the truancy disappeared.
Those procedures couldn’t be imposed
today but it sure says something about
making parents take responsibility for their
children’s actions.

Be safe: Designate a driver
Editor:
On August 14, 2010, my nephew, Sheldon
Ross Atwood, 22, from Vega, TX, was killed
in a wreck by a 21 year old drunk driver who
failed to stop at a stop sign, slamming into
the side of the car my nephew was driving.
Sheldon’s dear mother, my sister, will never
be the same. Even though her faith in God
carries her throughout her day, she will forever feel the despair of losing her oldest son. A
young man who touched so many lives, and
with so much life himself, was taken from us
Pamela
Baker
All summer long I have been trying to talk
to my son Andrew about starting Kindergarten. He didn’t seem all that interested,
so I had been a little worried about it. When
anyone asks him if he was excited about going to school he would shrug his shoulders
and say, “yeah,” unconvincingly.
He has been going to It’s a Small World
Nursery School for a couple of years, so he
was used to the routine of getting up and
going to school, but elementary school is a
big step.
On his first day, all dressed up in his new
short pants and favorite Super Mario Wii
shirt, with his Toy Story backpack looking
way too big on his little frame, I began to
tear up just a little.
My husband drove Andrew and Molly to
school that first day, so he could walk them
to their class. On my way to work I began to
think about my little guy, in that big school,
and I started to really cry. So I called my
husband.
“He’s too little to go to school!” I cried.
Tina Collins
Kenedy
“Oh Pam, he’s so happy and excited. He’s
going to be fine,” he reassured me.
Sure enough, when my husband walked
him to his class Andrew didn’t have any
problems saying goodbye, and went into his
classroom without any fuss at all.
When I picked him up in the evening he
told me about all the things that happened
that day and asked me what they were going to do tomorrow.
On the second day I dropped him off at
school with his sister. A few hours later, his
principal called me and explained that Andrew had eaten his lunch for breakfast, so
they ordered him a lunch from the cafeteria.
When I picked him up on this second day
Andrew quickly informed me that I was to
now pack two sandwiches and two juice
boxes, so he could have a backup lunch in
case he forgot and ate some of it the morning.
While getting him ready for bed on the
second night, I washed his hair and helped
him brush his teeth. He talked about school
again.
“I wonder what is going to happen on
three day,” he said. “Today was red day, RE-D,” he spelled.
And then I knew he was going to do just
fine in Kindergarten, as long as I remember
to pack an extra sandwich.
Introductions

Brubaker
Folks as school started this past Monday, it
brought back a flood of memories to this old
teacher, coach and administrator.
I want to relate to you how I first met a
young High School student.
It was my first year as the High School Principal at Farmersville School.
I was sitting in my office when I heard a
loud banging going on in the hallway.
I jumped up and went into the hallway.
There, off to my right was a young man opening and closing a locker banging the door
back and forth. He was looking toward the
north stair steps and as I was coming from
the south he never saw me approaching. As
I reached him I tapped him on the shoul-
der and said, “Young man are you looking for
trouble?
Instantly his right hand shot upward and
he said, “How do you do/”
Instantly I knew this was a bright lad with a
sense of humor.
I took him to my office and we had a talk. I
cannot remember what, if any, punishment I
administered .
Be that as it may John Patterson went on to
college and got his PHD!
I was right; he was and is a bright man with
an unusual sense of humor.
So teachers enjoy your students and give
them your best! Students do the best you can
and listen to your teachers. Who knows you
might just learn something that will change
your life. After all teachers aren’t trouble!
They can and will be helpful friends if you
give them a chance.
Have a great year all of you including
teachers, students and parents.
God bless you all!

way too soon and for reasons that should
not have been. I just want anybody reading
this to remember and remind others that if
you can take time out to plan to drink, then
you can take the time to designate a driver to get you home safely and without risking the lives of others. A designated driver would have saved Sheldon’s friends and
family from the horrendous pain we are going through.

Getting him back
on his feet
Dave
Ramsey
Dear Dave,
My wife and I are getting close to retirement, and our 36-year old recently moved
back in with us. His automotive restoration
business went bankrupt, he hasn’t been able
to find another job, and he has nowhere else
to go. What can we do to help him?
John
Dear John,
You have to define what helping your son
really means. In my mind, you haven’t helped
him at all if he’s still squatting in your basement five years from now. That’s called being an enabler. But it’s not going to help him,
either, if you toss him on the street and say
“You’re 36. Be a man!” I think you should formulate a progressive plan somewhere between those two extremes—something that
includes a move-out deadline, but will help
him regain some dignity.
As part of living with you, I’d require him to
do three or four things. One is that he abides
by your household rules. If he’s going to live in
your home, he should act the way you want
him to act. Number two, he needs to be engaged in some kind of regular physical activity. Even if you have to pay for it, you could get
a membership at a gym or buy some exercise
equipment. Exercise stimulates the mind,
and he needs that right now. It’ll also be great
for his body. Getting beat up like he’s been
can be tough at that age. It can lead to depression if you don’t engage in physical activity
and goal setting.
Next, is to think about career steps. He
could start with a part-time job to get some
money in his pockets. Then, work on a longterm career goal. He knows how to turn a
wrench, and he probably likes that kind of
Life
work. His mind works spatially, which means
he can look at things and figure out how they
operate. So, it might be a good idea to move
in that direction. It doesn’t even have to be
cars. He could learn to work on boats or aircraft.
You don’t want to beat the kid when he’s
down, but you don’t want to participate in
his sewage, either. Help him clean up his life,
and get him out of there as fast as possible. It’s
what’s best for everyone!
— Dave
Dear Dave,
We live in Boston, and we’ve got three kids
who are almost ready for college. My wife and
I make about $114,000 a year combined, and
that includes a $34,000 a year pension I receive. Should we use the pension money to
pay for their tuition, or should we let them
take out student loans?
Geoff
Dear Geoff,
There’s no way I’m going to send anyone
into student loan debt, especially when the
household income is in the six-figure range!
Now, that assumes the kids choose a college you can afford, but with your income you
guys could handle tuition at most state colleges. And that means all the kiddos are going to have to pick a reasonably-priced school
if they expect you to foot the bill. We’ve got
to use a little common sense here. No champagne taste on a beer pocketbook!
You guys are doing okay, but you can’t afford to send these kids to $30,000 a year
schools. All this will be hitting you at about
the same time, so I want you to cash flow
this thing, and pay as you go along. College is
great, but you need to invest your money into
something that fits your budget!
— Dave

Eating Up
By Amelia Simmons
Clarence Birdseye, the pioneer of frozen
foods was born in Brooklyn in 1886. According to family legend an ancestor saved
the life of an English queen by shooting
an attacking hawk through the eye, thereby earning the name “Birds Eye.” It makes
a good story.
He was modest about his accomplishments, insisting that the Eskimos had used
his technique for quick freezing for centuries.
Birdseye’s wife, Eleanor, was an intrepid
woman. Her father was the founder of the
National Geographic Society and she took
it in stride when Clarence moved her and
their newborn son – named Kellogg – to a
remote shack in Labrador, Canada. There,
he traveled by sled to acquire furs and she
tended the traps and the baby boy.
This was where the real fascination with
freezing foods developed. Clarence put cabbages into the baby’s bath pan, added salt
water and exposed the pan to the frigid
weather. Voila: the Birdseyes had green vegetables all winter and we got TV dinners.
Don’t use frozen cabbage for this one,
which comes from Louisiana.
Calinda Cabbage
1 large Savoy cabbage, outer leaves removed.
1 cup rice boiled
1 cup chopped chicken meat, no skin
1 cup ham, cooked and minced
¼ cup fine chopped chives
½ teaspoon cayenne
salt and pepper
4 slices of bacon
Variations
Sliced sautéed mushrooms
Minced garlic
Sausage, crumbled and cooked
Sauce.
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut a deep slit in the stem of the cabbage and soak
in cold water for 30 minutes. Boil the cabbage in
salted water for 10 minutes, then drain until it is
cool.
Make a forcemeat by combining the meats, cayenne, chives and seasonings. At this point, add
any desired variations and if needed, a little beaten egg yolk to adhere the forcemeat.
Stand the cabbage on its stem. Beginning at the
center, gently pry open the leaves without breaking the ribs. Fill the spaces between the leaves with
about 1 tablespoon forcemeat and then close together.
Tie the cabbage firmly in cheesecloth (as if you
were boiling a pudding). Tie kitchen twine around
the bundle as if you are trussing a chicken, lay the
cabbage into a large pot of simmering water and
cook for 45 minutes.
Prepare the sauce, seasoning well.
Remove and drain the cabbage. Slice into quarters
and serve very hot with the sauce poured over.

Please help us conserve water!
Please help us conserve water!
Effective immediately through Wednesday, September 1, please do not
water your yard and make the best efforts to restrict your water use.
We expect scheduled pump repairs to cause a temporary reduction in water capacity. This
is completely normal and will ultimately result in improved efficiency once repairs are
completed on Wednesday.
Here are some tips to help with water conservation in the next week:
1. Turn off the water when brushing teeth, which saves three gallons each day.
2. Set lawn mower blades one notch higher, which means less evaporation and saves
500 – 1,500 gallons per month.
3. Please avoid non-essential outside water use for the next week, such as watering
the yard.
Thank you for your patience during this temporary inconvenience, and we appreciate your
environmental contribution while the system is optimized. Repairs will be completed by
Wednesday, September 1.

The gospel reading for this
past Sunday was Luke 13:1017. In this passage we are told
that Jesus healed a woman
who had suffered for eighteen years with a spirit that
had crippled her, causing her
to be bent over and unable to
stand upright. The leader of
the synagogue criticized Jesus
for healing on the Sabbath,
the crowd, however, rejoiced
at the wonderful things Jesus
was doing.
Pastor Wally Schievelbein
spoke in his sermon of how
God had given the law as a gift
to humankind, and in turn
humans took this gift of God
and used it as a way to browbeat others into submission.
In the same way God sent Jesus to free us from the multitude of ways that the world
beats us down, to proclaim to
us that we are freed from the
bondage of our sins, free to
live our lives with our hearts
and our hands lifted heavenward in praise of the the God
that has liberated us with the
life, death and resurrection of
his son.

“Deeper Meaning of Jesus Parables”
What a wondrous time
South Texas Christian Church
had today as Pastor Jim Pogue
reviewed sermons from the
past two weeks shedding
even more light on the parables Jesus gave us.
Hi opening statement was
when you understand how
much Jesus loves us you will
love Him back. John 3:16 says:
“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes shall not die but have
everlasting life.” When you really see what this means you
fall in love with God and become convicted to love Him
with all your heart, mind, soul
and spirit and your neighbor as yourself. Some may
be motivated by an unholy
fear of God thinking I will be
condemned if I don’t do certain things but John 3:17 says:
“God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the
world but to save the world
through Him.” When we view
this in proper perspective
we can then understand the
magnitude of God’s amazing
love and respond in the proper way!
In the Parable of the Prodigal Son coming from Luke
15:11-31, Jim retold the story sharing insights the Holy Spirit had given him. The
youngest son in the story
takes all the blessings his father gives him and leaves
home. The oldest son thinks
of himself as perfect and is in
fact very self-righteous. The
prodigal comes to his senses
and does so because all this
time his father prays for him
to come back home! The older son pleases the Father but
waits for his inheritance and
all the time is full of pride and
selfishness. The younger son
comes back to his Father as
he realizes how good he once
had it. The Father is looking
for him to come and sees him
afar off and runs to meet him.
The son falls down on his
knees asking for forgiveness
but the Father pulls him up
and kisses him and bestows
blessing on him as he asks for
a robe, ring and sandals be
given him. In the meantime
the older son comes home
and finds this party happening for the younger brother
and is mad. What happened
in this story? It is clear the Father gives each of his sons a
free will and loves them unconditionally. Our natural fathers would not have done
things this way but God the
Father did. All of us are either the older brother who is
self-righteous looking down
our noses at the lost and fallen sinners in the world wanting nothing to do with them
or we are the lost and fallen needing a Father like this
to pray us back into a right
and proper relationship with
the Father. Hopefully we will
chose to be like the Father
and help others come back to
God. God will let us choose as
He gives each of us a free will.
In the story of the Good Samaritan given in Luke 10:3037, Jim reviewed this with
new light. Our neighbor is our
spouse and children followed
by family, friends and those in
need. “Life gets tough leaving us broken, naked, poor,
in pain and suffering,” remarked Jim and in this story we see the Levite who does
not help as the man in desperate need will not make
him look good so he passes
him by. The Good Samaritan
however stops, picks up the
injured man and carries him
to an inn where the innkeeper
takes care of him. This Good
Samaritan is not accepted in
society but makes sure this
man is taken care of. This story shows who our neighbor is
and who the Good Samaritan
is. The Good Samaritan represents Jesus who comes to heal
us in our all our suffering. He
takes us to the Innkeeper who
represents the Holy Spirit
who comes to live inside us to
comfort us and be our helper in every way. It takes money to help this man who must
stay in the Inn and the money was paid for by Jesus Christ
who paid the price through
His life, death and resurrection! Think how much Jesus
loves you. Today you have a
choice to make to live for Jesus and be set free and have
life and have it more abundantly!
Come visit us at South Texas Christian Center Sundays
at 10 am with services at the
Kenedy Civic Center Auditorium! Next week we will have
our fellowship meal immediately following our service
and invite you to join! There
will be a back to school swim

_______________________
“Freedom in Christ”
Once again Pastor Jim
Pogue reviewed from the past
weeks on finding real freedom in Christ. The first two
things were to love God with
all our heart, soul, mind and
spirit and our neighbor as our
self. Our neighbor is anyone
coming across our path as in
the case of the Good Samaritan. God gives us aptitudes in
which to love our neighbor so
that we can provide for their
needs.
When we read the Bible
from cover to cover we find
God showing His great love
for us all the way through
and when we believe Jesus
is Lord and confess with our
mouths and believe in our
hearts we are saved. Romans
10:9. When we are in relationship in Christ we can measure
our spiritual pulse according
to Galatians 5:16-26. We were
told to be honest before God
in this and to ask Him how we
measure up. Are we walking
in the spirit or in the flesh?
Today’s sermon was taken from Luke 8:5-15 which
reads: “A farmer went out to
sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell
along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds of the
air ate it up. Some fell on the
rock, and when it came up,
the plants withered because
they had no moisture. Other
seed fell among thorns, which
grew up with it and choked
the plants. Still other seed fell
on good soil. It came up and
yielded a crop, a hundred
times more than was sown.
When he heard this, he called
out, “He who has ears to hear,
let him hear.” Jesus disciples
asked him what this parable
meant. He said the secrets
of the kingdom of God have
been given to you, but to others I speak in parables so that
“though seeing they may not
see; and though hearing, they
may not understand.” “This is
the meaning of the parable:
the seed is the word of God.
Those along the path are the
ones who hear, and then the
devil comes and takes away
the word from their hearts,
so that they may not believe
and be saved. Those on the
rock are the ones who receive
the word with joy when they
hear it, but have no root. They
believe for awhile, but in the
time of testing they fall away.
The seed that fell among
thorns stands for those who
hear, but as they go on their
way they are choked by life’s
worries, riches and pleasures,
and they do not mature. But
the seed on good soil stands
for those with a noble and
good heart, who hear the
word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.”
In this parable there are
four types of soil: first, the
seed on a hardened path
somewhat likened to concrete that is so hard nothing
will grow on it. The second
seed falls among rocks which
choke the life out of it and
the third seed falls among
thorns which do the same.
The fourth seed is the good
soil which produces a great
crop. The seed is the Word
of God and the devil comes
to take the word from hearts
so that we won’t believe and
be saved. Seed among rocks
have joy when they first believe but in the time of testing they fall away. The seeds
among thorns are those who
hear but are choked by the
worries, riches and pleasures
of life and the seed on good
ground are those who have
a noble and good heart, who
hear the Word and retain it
and produce much fruit in
their life.
Pastor Jim remarked that
we all start out with good soil
but something happened
along the way of life. All of
us fit in one of these categories; what category do you
find yourself in? In Old Testament times the enemy would
throw weeds in fields at night.
We get too busy to talk to God
and our enemy comes in to us
and put weeds in our life too,
and we need to be careful and
pull them out by the roots! If
you don’t get the roots out you
will have weeds back! In life
you must get to the root of the
problem and dig that out so
you can be truly free in Christ!
Some have been abused as
children whether emotionally
or physically which can make
our soil bad. Even a small
crack can let in some light
to cause something to grow!
God’s Word can find that
crack and come in and break
up that hard packed soil so
you can be free at last no matter what happened in life to
cause your soil to be bad. Jesus came to set you free so
you can have life. Be set free
today as you examine your
soil and let God work on you.
No matter what you may have
done you are forgiven as Jesus
paid your sin debt in full. Remember the weeds of life try
to choke God’s Word out so
watch and be vigilant in pulling up weeds as they try to
come in!
We had several workers
from our church that had a
delightful time taking meals
to our teachers throughout
the week and are so glad we
had an opportunity to honor
them as they start a new year!
Our prayers are with all our
treasured teachers and students!
Come worship with us Sunday mornings at 10 at the

The devotion for this week
is “God’s Blessings” by Derek Green, senior. Scripture is
from I John 4:16, “From the
fullness of His grace we have
received one blessing after
another.”
God blesses us all the time
through different situations.
Everything He does is for a
reason. We, as followers of
Christ, don’t always understand nor comprehend how
God works. He is within hap-
py moments when our mind
and body is at peace; but He
is also omnipresent in moments of sorrow and pain.
Every moment we have a
blessing because He is always
at work in us and through us
and within us. Pain can be
as much of a blessing as a
great accomplishment due
to the fact that pain breaks
down human being’s egotistical barrier that allows us to
believe “We” can take care of
ourselves.
This became overly apparent in my own life this past
summer. I believed I was the
“biggest and baddest” around
because I just had been
awarded All-State in baseball.
Never once did I thank God
for allowing and helping be
to perform at such a high level. God blessed me with that
honor and I was immensely happy. The very next week
my father committed suicide. I didn’t understand at
the time why God would “torment” me to such an emotional and internal extreme. I
was absolutely devastated!! I
actually thought He hated me
for some reason I couldn’t understand.
This wasn’t the case at all.
He was using great pain and
confusion as a blessing in
my life. He changed my soul,
heart, and confidence that
day to where now I truly offer
Him the grace He deserves. I
give all my talent and accomplishments to Him instead of
my own egotistical self. God
is the answer to all, in every
situation He puts us in, He is
blessing our faith and love in
Him to become the Christian
He aspires us to be.
Prayer: I pray that everyone
may receive and love ALL of
God’s blessings to us. Amen

What About Me?
Telling a childhood story about his family making
their annual trek to a favorite swimming hole, Rev. John
Wheat began his Sunday sermon revealing how his father
played a practical joke on him
during one of the trips.
It seems the older Mr.
Wheat had a sense of humor, and during one of the
family swim sessions, he and
a friend hid under the platform in the lake and would
call out, “John! John!” as our,
then young, pastor would
swim around the platform puzzled that he couldn’t find
the source of the beckonings.
Eventually, he did see his father and friend hiding underneath the structure, between
the water and the bottom of
the deck. Mr. Wheat held out
his hand for his son to grab.
Trusting his father, young
Wheat took his elder’s hand –
quickly finding himself being
pulled under the water and
floating buoy, and up to safety at the surface - underneath
the platform - with his father
and family friend. Together they would pull the same
trick on other family members as they swam by, never being detected. “It was like
having a fort,” said Wheat as
he described the adventure.
Wheat said while he didn’t
understand the point of being under the platform, he
trusted his father enough to
let him pull him under the
water and buoy to the other
side, and up to the surface to
join his father. “It’s the same
with the things we’re not sure
about in life today… and
trusting God,” said Wheat.
“There are a lot of things in
life we wonder, ‘Well what’s
the purpose of this? What’s
the meaning of this?’ And we
might not know exactly what
the purpose or the meaning
is, but by faith, and with confidence, we continue to move
forward… allowing people
who have been there before
us, to secure us and encourage us along the way. As we go
along, we may even begin to
wonder what the meaning of
life is,” explained Wheat.
Continuing, Wheat said
there had recently been a survey done by USA Today asking readers, “If you could get
a clear and direct response
from God on one question,
what would you ask God?”
Overwhelmingly, the majority of respondents said
they would ask, “What is the
meaning of my life?”
To answer that question,
Wheat said (tongue in cheek)
he turned to “one of the greatest theologians we know today… Charles Schulz, author
of the comic strip Peanuts.”
He referenced one publication where Charlie Brown
and Lucy were talking about
life. Lucy described it as a
lawn chair. You can face it to
the back to see where you’ve
been. You can place it so you
can see where you are, and
you can face it to the front
to see where you are going.
Charlie Brown responded to
her analogy by saying, “I can’t
even get mine unfolded!”
“When we stop and think
about life and think about
where we are going, where’s
your direction today? Do you
have your chair facing back
so you can see where you’ve
been and focus on that? Facing in such a way to where
you can see where you are,
and focusing on that? Or, do
you have your chair facing in
such a way you can see where
you are going?” asked Wheat.
Wheat explained since we,
ourselves, did not create life,
we can talk to the Creator of
life Himself. “What better way
to talk to the Creator than to
read in the rule book he has
given us?” asked Wheat. God
has a plan for you and me,
and He wants us to know it.
“It’s not something He holds
in secret and it’s not something He makes hard to find,
but it’s something He wants
us to know… God wants to re-
veal that purpose and bring it
about in the life He has given
to you,” said Wheat.
Referencing
Colossians
1:16-17, Wheat said the verses boil down to three things:
1. All things have been created by God. 2. All things have
been created for God. 3. In
Him all things are held together.
“When we stop and put
these three things together… we recognize there you
are gong to find the purpose
of life. You see, it’s not really
about me. And, it’s not really about you. It’s really about
God. Because God’s the One
who’s created it. God’s the
One who’s even created it for
Himself. And in Him, He’s the
One who holds it all together.
And when we find ourselves
in that kind of a relationship,
we can read and understand
from the Creator what it is
He’s called and asked us to
do.”
There are also three levels
of living: 1. Survival – where
you are just getting by. Some
people are in this level and focus on surviving. 2. Success –
where you are comfortable.
Some people are in this level and focus on their success
and enjoy it. But, God doesn’t
want us to stay in the first two
levels, He wants us to rise to
the 3rd level: Significance –
realizing you have been called
to have an influence for the
Kingdom of God.
Wheat explained what significance is, “A place where
we can truly come to understand that God is doing something in our lives for the benefit of others. And, it’s not just
about me and it’s not just
about you, or about us.
How do we know that we
have understood what life
is about and the true meaning of life? It’s only when we
come to understand that everything has been made by
God and made for God, and
that in God everything holds
together.”

Complete Surrender
Pastor Curtis Moyer's message was based around the
theme of complete surrender
to following God. We often
get off in a certain direction
and think we are sailing right
when all the time we are veering off and going our way and
not God's way. He will guide
our footsteps, and we must
learn that when he does, we
must listen and follow His
guidance. He is the one who
knows where we should be.
So what does complete surrender mean?
First, ths dedication means
submission, giving up what
we are doing to surrender
and obey Him. In Mark 1: 1920 , we read of this when Jesus called his disciples. "And
when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James,
the son of Zebedee , and John
his brother, who also were in
the ship mending their nets.
And straightway he called
them; and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with
the hired servants and went
after Him." Trust and obey. It
is not about what we feel on
the inside, but about obeying God's words. We must
change the way we think and
follow him and obey what
we know is correct. WE must
keep ourselves in a lifestyle
that is pleasing to God. Submit, obey and don't look
back. When we serve Jesus,
we can't just "give it a try." We
must submit and surrender
100% and follow him.
Complete
surrender
means denial of the world.
John 2:15 tells us, "Do not
love the world. If anyone
loves the world, the love of
the Father is not in him." We
must take the opportunity extended by God and the blessings of that offered to us when
Jesus said, "Follow me," WE
can always think of many
things that keep us from the
opportunities to serve. These
obstacles may be what we see
as obligations - family matters, friends, work, and various "important" occasions.
These keep us from taking the
opportunities that God gives
us to serve him. We must not
let worldly expectations keep
us away from Him, but we
must separate ourselves from
the world.
Another thing needed for
complete surrender to God
is 100% determination. This
involves correct priorities. We
must be determined to follow
the Word of God. In Luke 9: 61
we read of one asked to follow
him, " And another also said,
"Lord, I will follow thee, but
let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my
house." This is not the way of
the Lord. We must also have
a clear perception of our missions. We must go forward
to where God wants us to be.
Luke 9: 62 tells us, "And Jesus said unto him, No man,
having put his hand to the
plough, and looking back, is
fit for the kingdom of God."
We must live in excitement
about our surrender, give
it our all and finish strong.
Complete surrender is giving
all to God and following Him
forward to where he leads us,
not just where we think we
should be.
We praise God for the beginning of a new school year
and for the progress in Gabby's illness. We keep the following in our prayers: Sam
Swierc, J. L . Kampsey, Dorothy Jean Yeater, Dori Yeater
and the school personnel as
they continue to work to go
forward with their students.

St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church news
Contributed By: Pat Hemby
The Thirteenth week of
Pentecost was celebrated
at St. Matthew’s Episcopal
Church of Kenedy with Reverend Dr. Robert Johnston as
pastor. Neil Nichols was the
Lay Minister and Reader of
the Lessons.
The First Lesson was Jeremiah 1:4-10. Jeremiah was
concerned about witnessing
for the Lord because he was
so young and might not know
the right words to use. He was
also afraid that he would not
be listened to. The Lord assured him that he would put
the words in his mouth and
give him the power to do his
work.
The Second Lesson was
Hebrews 12:18-29. Paul reminds the Hebrews that God
has dealt with them in the
past, but now he sent Jesus to
be the mediator of a new covenant with them. Through
Christ they can now be accepted into the kingdom of
God.
Reverend Johnston read
the Gospel according to Luke
13:10-17. Jesus was being criticized by the leader of the synagogue for healing a woman
on the Sabbath. Jesus called
them hypocrites because
they take of their own things
on the Sabbath. Why should
Jesus refrain from healing a
woman who had been suffering for years? They think only of themselves, not of the
needs of others.
Jesus was criticized for
healing someone on the Sabbath and was told it was a sin.
Jesus lived a perfect life without sin and yet he took the
sins of the world on himself.
We seek the grace of God to
live each day in his will, but
we are weak. Sin is an obstacle to our relationship with
God and to living as he wants
us to. It distorts our relationship with him and with others. Sin is a spiritual death.
We must have the conscience
and willfulness to live as God
wants us to.
Satan is the personification
of evil which we must overcome. We can do this through
baptism and confession.
Turn to God and do what he
asks. Get rid of your baggage of “sins” and be reconciled with God. We must train
ourselves to recognize sin
and deny it. Perhaps a spiritual director and daily prayer
would help. It can strengthen and guide you in the right
paths. Learn to talk to God
and also to listen to him. Get
rid of everything that stands
in the way of a fruitful relationship with God.
First Presbyterian Church news
Contributed By: Kathy Chapman
August 22 at First Presbyterian Church
Pastor Chuck Gibbs’ sermon text on August 22 was
Luke 13: 10-17:
“Jesus was teaching in one
of the meeting places on the
Sabbath. There was a woman
present, so twisted and bent
over with arthritis that she
couldn't even look up. She
had been miserable for eighteen years. When Jesus saw
her, he called to her: ‘Woman, you're free!’ He laid hands
on her and suddenly she was
standing straight and tall, giving glory to God. The person in charge of the meetingplace was furious because
Jesus had healed on the Sabbath. He said to the congregation, ‘Six days have been
defined as work days. If you
want to be healed, come on a
work day, but do not come on
the seventh day. It is the Sabbath.’ But Jesus shot back,
‘You fraud! Each Sabbath
you untie your cow or donkey from its stall, you lead it
out for water, and you think
nothing of it. So why isn't it all

right for me to heal this woman who has been afflicted all
these eighteen years?’ When
Jesus put it that way, his critics were left looking quite silly and red-faced. The congregation was delighted and
cheered Jesus on.”
Pastor Gibbs said he often
heard people say that they
did not go to church because
“Christians are just a bunch of
hypocrites.” He said he never
heard anyone say that Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists or
Jews were hypocrites – just
Christians. It seems hypocrisy is reserved for us Christians. Could it be that Christians are held to a higher
standard of love, peace, justice, and mercy?
The next time someone
tells you that they do not go
to church because Christians are hypocrites, tell
them: “That is absolutely correct! You are right! Christians
are hypocrites! In fact, that
is what church is all about –
a school for the worst hypocrites! Because God loves
each one of us unconditionally even though we are sinners
and hypocrites, he created
a school for us. That school
Bourne
Lauren D. Bourne, daughter of Luther and Francis Davis Stout was born on March
10, 1959 and passed away on
August 23, 2010 at Metropolitan Methodist Hospital in San
Antonio Texas. Lauren was
a successful accountant for
many years before becoming disabled in 1999, she endured through multiple surgeries and lots of pain before
finally going home to be with
the Lord, she is at peace now
and forever without pain. The
joys of her life were her loving
husband Marshall B. Bourne
III, her children, her grandchildren, and her two loving
chihuahuas Pepe & Tico.
She is survived by her husband Marshall B Bourne
III, her sons Korby Bourne
and Jeremy Bourne, her
step daughter Katrina Davis, her grandchildren Nicholas Luke Bourne, Nathaniel
Ryan Bourne, Lauren Nicole Bourne, Alyssa Huey,
Auston Gastard, and Savannah Gastard, her sisters Sue

IS the church, where we can
discover that God loves us in
spite of our sin and hypocrisy, and that God forgives
us for our sin and hypocrisy.
And in God’s school, we learn
to live life with much less sin
and hypocrisy. Consequently,
we are to encourage all others
to follow the example of Jesus even though we cannot
do so perfectly ourselves. We
can talk “the talk,” but cannot
walk “the walk” perfectly so
we are therefore hypocrites.
BUT – REMEMBER – we are
the forgiven hypocrites and
that makes a world of difference. God loves us in spite of
our hypocrisy and sinfulness.
Come join us in becoming the precious and beloved
children God intended us to
be when he created us. We
need you and you need us.

welcome! Please call Pastor
Donna Martin at 210-8619529 or Ann Esse 830-7803590 for more information.
This past Sunday Fashing
UMC lifted prayers for the
family and friends of those
who have recently passed
away, for those who are ill, for
students of all ages, for teachers and administrators preparing for a new school year,
and for safe travel for all going off to college. The organist this week was Ann Esse.
Several guests were in attendance and were welcomed to
worship.
Rev. Martin’s sermon was
based on Luke 13:10-17, the
story of Jesus’ healing of the
crippled woman. The sermon
was entitled “Expanded Vision” and it examined the text
in light of the woman’s ability
to see the world from an upright, life-expanding position
once she was healed. Pastor
Donna spoke about ways our
vision is limited or “bent” by
prior experiences and how Jesus calls us to him for healing so that our vision can also be upright and expanded.
She specifically focused on
perceptions of the church today and the healing need-
ed by some where the church
is concerned. Congregants
were invited to go out into the
community, living the message of the Gospel, and inviting others to come and see
the One who frees us from the
things that bind us or limit
our vision.
At the end of the service,
parishioners who had not
had the opportunity to pray
over quilts in honor of Junior
Esse and for Albert Schroeder
were invited to do so. Cards
for the Butler’s grandbaby
and the Bush’s anniversary
were also available for wellwishes and prayers. The service was followed by a time of
greeting and fellowship.

“Rise Up and Be Set Free
From Your Bondage”
On the 13th Sunday after
Pentecost, Pastor David Collins presented the message
based on the Gospel taken
from the 13th Chapter of Luke
verses 10 – 17. Jesus healed a
woman on the Sabbath, offering her a new beginning for
her life. When challenged by
the leader of the synagogue
as to his work on the Sabbath, Jesus responds by explaining that “Sabbath work”
includes setting people free
from bondage. We as Christians need to consider what
keeps us bound and unable
to stand up straight. We also need to help enable oth-
ers to be released from what
keeps them bound. We must
call upon God to give us the
strength of mind and body to
rise up and follow his word.
The scriptures read by Randy Witte were taken from Isaiah Chapter 58, the 103rd
Psalm, and the 12th Chapter
of Hebrews. Dorothy Gross
served as organist and filled
our Church with the beautiful
music of our Lord. Andrew
Collins served as acolyte.
Ushers were Helen Grimm,
Robert Jonas and Paul Pfeifer. Flowers were provided by
Helen Grimm and family in
honor of all their loved ones.
May God extend his Blessing on all who serve our country in the armed forces. “Hugs
from Home” boxes are being
assembled for those from our
community serving overseas.
Please see the list in the fellowship hall for suitable items
to fill these boxes.
Our Prayers go to all who

Who is required to take Texas Hunter Education?
Every hunter (including
out-of-state hunters) born
on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must
successfully complete a Hunter Education Training Course.
Minimum age of certification
is 9 years of age (highly recommend that a parent attend
with 9-10 year olds).
If you were born on or after
September 2, 1971 and you
are:
• under 9 years of age, you
must be accompanied*.
• age 9 through 16, you
must successfully complete
a hunter education course, or
you must be accompanied*.
• age 17 and over, you must
successfully complete a hunter education course; or purchase a “Hunter Education
Deferral” and you must be accompanied*.
Please note that some fed-
erally controlled areas require
all hunters using that site to
have hunter education certification. In Texas, this includes Corps of Engineers
property and most military
reservations. Be sure to check
with the specific area prior to
going hunting.
Accompanied means: By a
person who is at least 17, who
is licensed to hunt in Texas,
who has passed hunter education or is exempt (born before Sept. 2, 1971), and you
must be within normal voice
control. Proof of certification
or deferral is required to be
on your person while hunting. Note: Certification is not
required to purchase a hunting license.

regulations, wildlife management and identification, conservation, ethics, firearm and
hunting safety and responsibility, and outdoor skills.
The traditional hunter education course averages 14
hours of instruction over two
or more days. The cost is $15.
Courses are offered across the
state throughout the year and
are taught by certified volunteer instructors. You need to
make a reservation with the
instructor to attend a course.
Check with the instructor for
directions and any special instructions prior to going to
class.
Upon arrival at the course:
• Fill out a student registration form. (Needed information, Social Security No., Address, Date of Birth)
• Pay the $15 state fee to the
instructor.
• Attend the entire course.
• Take the written exam
and get at least 70% correct to
pass.

send in the originals for processing. You may legally hunt
with a valid license and your
temporary certification card.
Your permanent card will be
mailed out within a short period of time.

of an annually planted commodity four of the six years
2002 through 2007; the land
is physically and legally capable of being planted in a normal manner to an agricultural commodity; and the owner
has owned the property for
the prior 12 months. In ad-
dition to the eligible land requirements, cropland must
have a weighted average erosion index of eight or higher. Land under expiring CRP
