Eagles win ‘nip and tuck’ battle over Brackett Tigers
Debbie Kistler
The Junction Eagle
The Junction Eagles travelled to Brackettville last
Friday, defeating the Brackett
Tigers 40-27, finishing their
non-district schedule 3-2. The
win was a total team effort,
with scoring by six Junction
players: Brad Sandlin-14, Jake
Whitley-6, Robert Young6, Ramiro Perez-2, Vince
Atchison-6 and Dewayne
The Eagles have improved
and matured and are jelling as
a team, but last Friday, it took
the Eagles most of the first
half to get themselves focused
and executing effectively.
They helped their opponents
by fumbling and losing hardfought yardage and scores to
penalties. In two weeks, the
Eagles start tough district play
with opponents that will capitalize on these mistakes, but
the Eagles have two weeks
to smooth out the wrinkles.

Standing in the end zone, Clay Dennis (10) stretches above his would-be tackler to grab a two-yard pass thrown from Jakob Whitworth (12). This was the
only score in the eighth grade ball game, making the final score Eagles 6 – Brackett 0. Asa Plumley (20) led up to the touchdown by running 55 yards to
get the ball to the four-yard line.

Commission on Environmental
Quality is in regards to:
Implementation of Mandatory
Water Use Restrictions
To: Junior municipal water
right holders whose water rights
have not been suspended in an
area where there is a senior call:
By letter dated August 8,
2011, I directed all junior
municipal water right holders
in senior call areas that had
not been suspended due to a
senior call to implement mandatory water use restrictions
in their drought contingency
plans that include prevention
of outdoor lawn watering. This
letter will provide more guidance in response to questions
that I have received.
I have not suspended water
rights that are used for domestic, municipal, and power purposes because I am concerned
these uses are necessary for
the protection of public health
and safety. Therefore, I believe
that junior surface water rights
that have not been suspended
should be using their surface
water rights to protect public
health and safety needs. Public
health and safety can include
needs such as drinking water,
fire protection, hospital use,
tree preservation, necessary
domestic uses, and other uses
determined by the municipal
user to be necessary to protect

A previous article about the City of Junction’s Tourism Fund
(the Fund) described its purpose and how it is administered,
including the role and make-up of the Junction Texas Tourism
Board (JTTB). Today’s article summarizes the expenditures
from the Fund since 1994, as well as the JTTB’s current budget.
To recap last week’s article, the Fund, established in 1975,
exists to promote tourism and its attendant economic benefits for
businesses and the community at large. Information on revenue
deposited in the Fund is readily accessible only for 1994, and
afterward, when electronic record keeping was started.
State law governs how money from the Fund may be spent.
A two-part test must be met for expenditures to be legal. First,
expenditures must directly promote tourism – i.e., bring visitors
from outside of the city into the city or its vicinity. This is also
referred to as “putting heads in beds”. Second, expenditures
from the Fund must fit clearly into one of the statutorily-authorized purposes described in the previous article on the Fund.
The City Council is ultimately responsible for ensuring that
expenditures from the Fund meet the statutorily required twopart test.

An early Monarch butterfly was espied flitting across
my yard this week, soon
after the arrival of the first
day of Autumn. I anticipate
other magnificent Monarchs
will follow, as their migration
Southward before the coming winter is imminent. I must
pause to mention the wondrous
beauty of the Cenizos abloom
in our midst.

Kimble County’s latest centenarian, Nora Cabler Randle, a
great lady who was honored
with a birthday celebration
Saturday upon attaining the
100th anniversary of her birth
to parents, James Fisher Cabler
and Birda Springs-Dagen
Cabler. In 1930, Nora was a
member of the last class to graduate from the Charles Schreiner
High School in Junction. She
and Ernest Randle were married over fifty years before his
death in 1989. They had three
sons and a daughter – James
Terry “Jimmy”, Charles Ernest
“Charley”, Reba May (Pape),
and Sidney Thomas “Tommy”.
Nora is a former member of
Kimble County Historical
Marvel Ann Skaggs Moss of
Kerrville spent some time at
the historical museum during
late week, and I enjoyed her
visit. Her mission was to bring
a contribution for the museum
building fund from her and her
husband, G. E. “Bo”. Their
monetary gift was in memory
of Kathryn Greer Kothmann
and in memory of Tommy and
Bobby Lou Ogle Sherry.
Marvel Ann is the daughter
of the late Marvin and Anna
Boekhaus Skaggs and still
owns a portion of the ranch settled by her paternal grandparents, Newton Hodge Skaggs,
Jr. and Sarah Minerva Farrar
Billie Fisher Meckley is back
at her volunteer post at the local
historical museum after a trip
to Charleston, West Virginia,
where she attended a reunion
of her former high school classmates and enjoyed a visit with
relatives. Her daughter, Lynn
of Kerrville, accompanied her
on the mini-vacation.
An e-mail note from Golda
Foster, chairman of Tom Green
County Historical Commission,
contained the names of the
presenters for the meeting of
Edwards Plateau Historical
Association to be held Saturday,
October 1, in San Angelo. James
H. Murphy’s paper will be entitled, “Jacob Wilks, A Soldier’s
Journey”. Ross McSwain will
give a history of “The Pinta
Trail”, and Golda Foster will
tell of “The Race to Reach
San Angelo – Early History
of the Kansas City, Mexico,
and Orient Railway”. Russell
Smith’s topic will be “Chasing
the Caveman Bandit”.
Saturday’s meeting will
begin with registration and
morning reception beginning at
9:30 a.m. in the Heritage Hall of
First United Methodist Church,
17 East Beauregard Street.
During the noon hour, a meal
will be served by McGowan’s
Catering, and a business meeting will follow, with EPHA
President Betty Thomason of
Winters in charge.
The organization known as
The Edwards Plateau Historical
Association was organized
October 20, 1962, in Menard.
Susan Miles of San Angelo
was credited with pursuing the
formation of a group to represent the history of the Edwards
Plateau. Purpose of the newly-formed association was to
stimulate interest in the history
of the area and to contribute to
preservation of a written record
of that history. Documentation
was a factor as that would render the written accounts more
authentic and useful for scholars and other researchers.
First EPHA president was
John Winslow of Menard,
who was to be succeeded by
Carl Runge of San Angelo,
and then by Elton Mims of
Water Valley. Second EPHA
meeting was held in Ballinger,
and the third session was in
Fredericksburg. At the latter meeting, it was decided to
publish The Edwards Plateau
Historian, a collection of
research papers that had been
presented during the annual
The fourth meeting of the
group was at Fort Concho. At
that time, Dean Chenoweth was
president of the Tom Green
County Historical Society.
Following that day’s session,
the group attended a marker
dedication placed by the Tom
Green County Historical
Survey Committee near the site
of the old town of Ben Ficklin.
Membership in EPHA is
open to all persons interested in
the history of this area. Annual
dues are a mere $5 per person
or $7.50 for each couple.
Kimble County Historical
Commission (organized as
Historical Survey Committee
in 1962) has been host to a
number of gatherings of the
Edwards Plateau Historical
group. The latter organization now meets semi-annually. In addition to meetings at
Junction, the Kimble County
historical participants have
hosted meetings at Harper,
London, Fort Terrett, Fort
McKavett and Camp Verde.
Much history has been preserved through the efforts of
the Edwards Plateau Historical
Association, and I was honored when the group dedicated
Volume XII of The Historian
in my honor.
The Josiah Taylor family reunion was Saturday in
Cuero, and a report from Joanie
Puryear of Fredericksburg
related it was well-attended.
The guest speaker was a Texas
Ranger who told of numerous
members of the Taylor family who had served as Texas
Rangers. Foremost among
the outstanding Rangers
was Captain William Walter
Taylor, appointed in 1917
by Governor W. P. Hobby.
(The said W. W. Taylor, who
served several terms as Kimble
County Sheriff is buried in the
Junction Cemetery.) He was
the maternal grandfather of
Jan Hill Dedke and Connie
Chadwell Murr. An earlier
frontier Texas Ranger was W.
W. Taylor’s renowned greatuncle, Creed Taylor, who is
buried at Noxville.
Joanie brought news that
Marjorie Burnett, State
Registrar for Daughters of the
Republic of Texas, had processed 150 DRT membership
applications since June 1 of
this year.
Another e-mail arrived from
Lizette Tandy of Georgetown,
who related the next Taylor
reunion will be September
29, 2012, at the YO Resort in
The most recent out-of-state
tourists at Kimble Historical
Museum were Matt and Debbie
MacKee of Keizer, Oregon.
We continue to have visitors
from Kimble County and other
locales in the Lone Star State.
One avid supporter of downtown revitalization is our own
Ronald Sutton, who – like so
many of us – remember the
wonderful heyday when automobiles lined the streets of
Junction. Prior to the time
when parallel parking became
the norm, cars were diagonally parked. Businesses were
numerous in the 600 block and
beyond, and it was unnecessary
to travel to surrounding cities
to purchase needed supplies.
Alas, the lure of Saturday’s
downtown activity faded with
the advent of several factors,
including the parallel parking
(complete with the installation
of parking meters), a five-day
work week, the re-routing of the
inter-continental highway, etc.
One important and gravelymissed thing is the camaraderie
of neighbors and friends who
gathered downtown to visit and
share news. It behooves each of
us to do our part to renew the
former spirit of our hometown
Last week’s edition of The Junction Eagle stated incorrectly that the Lower Colorado River Authority would
hold a “Landowner’s Workshop” on September 22 at the
Coke R. Stevenson Memorial Center. The correct date
for the workshop is September 29. This workshop is only
for landowners that will have the new LCRA high-voltage
power lines located on their properties; the meeting is not
open to the general public.

The Bones of Avalon
By Phil Rickman
John Dee is Elizabeth I’s
conjurer (astrologer) during a
time in history when there was
much superstition, witch hunting and suspicion on anyone a
little different. John Dee also
collects books while doing
research in science, mathematics and religion.
John and his friend, Lord
Robert Dudley, are sent to
Glastonbury by Sir William
Cecil to find the bones of King
Glastonbury, Robert becomes
deathly ill, so John must
search for the bones of King
Arthur on his own. Little does
he know murder will also be a
part of his search.
This is an interesting novel.
Although fiction, many of the
people including John Dee
actually lived.

our EMS team for their response, all our local churches
for their many prayers, Kerr Co. Federal Credit Union
for answering all my questions, the Emergency Room
staff for being so compassionate, First Baptist Church
for the use of their facilities and to Cesar Vasquez for
cooking and all who helped serve. We would also like to
say thanks to Jessica’s teachers and friends who have
shown her support, and the Junction teachers and staff
that have also been there for our grandchildren. Last
but not least to our Congregation at House of Prayer
and to the Thursday Prayer Group ---- Romans

through him who loved us. Again, we say thank you.

When you watch TV news,
one of the subjects they get
around to rather frequently is:
“time out for polls”! I’m a
little startled at the variance
of the categories, and the up
and down of the numbers in
a given week and the up and
down in the categories. How
can they move so fast?
This a.m. one of the polls
had the “satisfied with the way
the government was being
handled” category at 81%
Dissatisfied. My memory is
shoddy at best but early summer I recall a 70% satisfied
was being broadcast. Now
how can your average type
citizen cope with “changes”
like that? One thing some may
wish to know: is/was there
actually a change? Or was the
change attributed to just who
took the poll, where they took
it and was there a great enough
variance in the people who
were questioned?
The speed with which they
change and what the changes
are may be the biggest answer
in what the “average” guy or
gal is having with the poll
category “government”. It’s no
secret that the rapidity of what
happens to the various major
items will effect that average
guy or gal in the way they live,
how they are forced to live that
way, why they are forced to
live that way, and what did the
government do to make it so.
A way back there when
they wrote the Articles of
Confederation, some pretty
smart guys said, “NO”. Next
came the Constitution which
took a ramrod government off
the table and installed a much
less authoritarian one in its
place. My question is: Were
they victorious? Another good
poll question?

A message
from Chief Marvin Ivy
I’m back from a vacation to
Michigan, and it is really good
to get back. After the first day
of being back, my impression
is that the officers did such a
good job of handling things,
that I wasn’t even missed. I did
hear early this week that last
Friday a lady decided to steal a
sign out of the school zone on
College Street that was warning drivers that pedestrians
were in the roadway. Besides
not making any sense financially, the theft of that sign
could lead to another driver
running over a child, which
opens the suspect up to both
serious criminal charges and
potentially costly civil liability. Many crimes do not make
sense to me, but this one was
even stranger than usual.
My wife and I were walking on our vacation down a
Michigan highway and saw a
motor home for sale on a car
lot. We stopped to look and
discovered that it and most
of the other vehicles were
unlocked. Finally I found a
place that was even worse than
Junction about keeping their
vehicles secured. This community was so small that there
were not even any local police.
However, my son-in-law
was stopped by a vigilant city
employee and asked why he
was lingering suspiciously
around my house. He was
smoking and in his very thick
English accent gave Cliff my
name, and Cliff knew me and
went on about his many other
duties. It was soon apparent
that the neighbors watched out
for each other and reported
things that didn’t look right.
That is the way things are
supposed to work. A witness
here saw the sign being stolen
. .from the Library
by Sylvia Lawler
The first “Art Show”
ever held at Kimble County
Library, or at least on my
watch, will begin next week
on Wednesday, October 5,
and continue through Sunday,
October 9.
The public is invited
to come by beginning on
Wednesday, October 5, to
view all of the talent that
Kimble County residents
have chosen to showcase. All
of the items will be on display
until Sunday, October 9.
Then at 1 p.m. on that
Sunday, the public is cordially invited to a reception in the
library at which time the winners of the Kimble County
Art Show will be announced.
Those of you who signed up
to participate in the art show
will need to bring your items
into the library on Monday,
October 3, starting at 10 a.m.
We will continue to accept
entries until 12 noon on that
1st and 2nd place ribbons
will be awarded in each of
the two categories, 2 D (two
dimensional) and 3 D (three
dimensional). A “Best of
Show” will also be chosen.
Cash prizes will be awarded
along with the ribbons. 1st
place will receive $30, with
2nd place receiving $20, and
“Best of Show” will take
home $50.
Be sure to come by on
last Friday, but did not report
it to the police, and I don’t
know why not. Catching a suspect in the act is the most cost
effective way to solve a crime.
Actually, preventing a crime is
more effective, but it is hard to
prove that a particular action
prevented a crime… but I ramble. It is far better for you to
report a theft in progress than
to wait a few days and report
it, as the case follow up on a
cold trail is always harder.
You pay for our police services here in Junction, and you
would get better value for your
money if you would call us
when something is happening,
and let us investigate the crime
when it occurs. Take pride and
ownership in your community.
Get involved.
Once again, I am glad to be
home. Even if it is all brown
and dried up here, we know it
will rain someday and we will
appreciate it even more then.
Until later, enjoy life here in
the land of living waters and
call us when you see something going on that we need to
know about.
Sunday, October 9, beginning
at 1 p.m. for refreshments and
to view the art entries. Please
mark your calendar now to
be at the library and help
show your support to Kimble
County’s talented artist.
Another up-coming event
at the library is on Saturday,
October 1, at 10 a.m. until
11:30 a.m. librarian, Christina
Beam, will be introducing the P.E.A.R.L. program
“Growing Up Wild.” All parents along with their children between the ages of 3
and 5 are invited to participate. Storytelling, crafts, and
snacks will be some of the
activities that will be offered.
Hope to see at the library this

Question: With National
Breast Cancer Awareness
Month coming up and as a
woman, I want to become
more knowledgeable on the
disease. What do I need to
know about breast cancer, and
how can I help spread awareness in October?
Answer: You’re right;
October is National Breast
Cancer Awareness Month.
The National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month (NBCAM)
organization involves several
national public service groups,
professional medical associations and government agencies
in the effort to raise awareness
about breast cancer and prevention. These groups work
together to build awareness
about the disease, share information and provide access to
screening services.
What you should know?
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in
women in the United States.
It is a malignant tumor that
grows in one or both breasts.
Although breast cancer is possible in males, it is much more
common among women.
Although breast cancer
mostly affects women after
menopause, it can affect
younger women as well.
Factors that put women at
high risk for developing breast
cancer include a personal history of breast cancer or other
breast disease, a family his-
tory of breast cancer and a history of chest radiation therapy
before age 40. Other risk factors include heavy alcohol use,
high intake of red meat, dense
breasts and obesity.
One of the earliest signs of
breast cancer can be an abnormality that shows up in a mammogram before it can be felt.
The most common signs of
breast cancer are a lump in the
breast, abnormal thickening of
the breast or a change in the
shape or color of the breast.
A key tool for breast cancer
detection is the mammogram
which uses special X-ray images to detect abnormal growths
or changes in the breast tissue. A mammogram is your
best defense against breast
cancer because it can detect
the disease in its early stages
before it can be felt during a
self-breast exam. Research has
shown that mammograms can
increase breast cancer survival. Monthly self-breast exams
are also an important line of
defense for detection.
There are many different
treatments for breast cancer,
but they all have the same
major goals: to rid the body
of the cancer as completely
as possible and to prevent the
cancer from returning. Local
treatments, which attempt to
remove, destroy or control cancer cells in a specific area,
include surgery, such as a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and
radiation therapy. Systematic
treatments, which are used
to destroy or control cancer
cells all over the body, include
chemotherapy, hormone therapy and biological therapy.
What you can do?
Get involved with a local
event dedicated to the cause of
raising awareness about breast
cancer such as the Susan G.
Komen Race for the Cure. This
race is technically a walk so
persons of all physical capabilities can participate. If you
aren’t a runner, find an event
that matches your interests
such as a golf tournament or
Page 5
a cook-off. Participating in
events is a great way to honor
a breast cancer survivor or victim.
Volunteer by finding a group
offering mammograms free or
at a reduced cost and ask what
kind of help they need. You
could provide transportation or
help with the screening process
in a support role.
Get passionate about pink.
The pink ribbon has become
the international symbol for
breast cancer awareness so
wear pink in October and join
Passionately Pink for the Cure.
For more information about
how you can help visit the
NBCAM site at www.nbcam.
org or the Susan G. Komen
website at www.komen.org. If
you are concerned you have
symptoms of breast cancer,
talk to your medical provider
about how and where you can
get a mammogram or other
type of test.

Junction Marketing Plan
This series on the Junction Tourism Fund explained how the
Fund is administered, and has also provided examples of how
money from the Fund has actually been spent. During the years
1994 through 2011, the amount spent has been $1,876,000. Fund
money has been given to 79 recipients with payments ranging
from $25 to over $500,000.
The largest recipient of Fund money during 1994 to 2011 has
been the Kimble County Chamber of Commerce, which received
$540,265. The City Council currently provides for the Chamber
to receive 30 percent of the Tourism Fund’s annual revenue.
This year’s contribution of $51,000 makes up 46 percent of the
Chamber’s current annual budget. All of the seven members of
the current JTTB Board have a business membership with the
Chamber. No more than one member of the Chamber’s Board
of Directors may serve on the JTTB, however.
The two other recipients of large amounts from the Fund have
been the Hill Country Fair Association (for the annual May
and August rodeos) and the O. C. Fisher Library. These two,
along with the Chamber, have received almost 50 percent of
the monies from the Fund during 1994-2011. Nearly half of all
recipients, however, each received payments of $5,000 or less.
These payments represented five percent of the monies spent
from the Fund.
In addition to providing money for specific events or activities,
funds have also been spent on a variety of approaches to market
Junction as a tourist destination. Examples of these approaches
include advertising in mostly out-of-town print media, hosting
tours for writers to write travel articles about our area, local
and out-of-town radio advertising, and web-based marketing. In
looking at these approaches, some were worth trying but did not
work; in others it was difficult to quantify how much “bang for
the buck” actually happened. The effort to find a truly successful marketing scheme continues and holds the most promise for
increasing tourism and its attendant economic benefits for the

Tourism Fund, as well as the amount of money each received, is

work on fine-tuning his young
“We’re not treating the open
week as a vacation. We’re not
taking this week off.”
Coach Spivey is glad for the
time to let his players heal.
“Some of our guys are pretty
banged up.”
The Brackett Tigers took
only five plays and 2:15 minutes to score on a 52-yard
breakaway run. Then the
Eagles pounded out 37 yards
on the ground with R. Young,
Danny Campbell, Sandlin and
Atchison taking turns moving
the pigskin. The offensive line
was doing a better job of picking up stunts and provided the
running room. Then a fumble
on the snap on fourth and five
on the Brackett 22 turned the
ball over to the Tigers.
The Brackett offense struggled, with Jordan Keeton and
Josh Whitley making stops, R.
Young knocking down a pass
and the Tigers losing ten yards
to penalties.
Alec Menchaca returned the
ensuing Brackett punt. Sandlin
took off for a 31-yard gain.
R. Young drove hard up the
middle for six yards. Campbell
added seven. Then, on a first
and ten, the Eagles’ dependable workhorse, R. Young,
plowed in, but lost the ball,
just 14 yards from the Brackett
goal line.
The Brackett Tigers started the second quarter with an
eight-minute, 87-yard drive.
Eagle defenders slowing the
Tigers progress were Austin
Dale, Josh Whitley, Jake
Whitley, Aaron Hernandez,
Agustin Fuentes, Reese
Sawyer, Justus Young, R.
Young and Keeton. A fouryard pass play topped off the
drive with a second touchdown
for the Tigers. The point after
attempt failed, but a personal
foul face mask call against
Junction gave the Tigers a
second chance. The Brackett
quarterback ran in, setting the
score at 14 to nothing.
Facing halftime, trailing by
two touchdowns must have
strengthened the Eagles’
resolve. Two minutes, six
plays and 63 yards later, the
Eagles lit up the board when
Sandlin took the ball in from
the one yard line. Perez’ kick
was good for another point.
Junction-7, Brackett-14
A welcome gift to the
Junction Eagles came on
the Tigers’ first play when
Hernandez pounced on a loose
ball. From the Brackett 30,
Sandlin passed an incomplete,
a 10-yarder to Perez, another
tipped away by a Tiger defender and then hit Stewart in the
end zone with :02 left in the
first half. Perez booted a good
one sending the teams to the
break tied 14-14.
The third quarter featured
five consecutive touchdowns.
The Eagles went first, scoring
in just four plays. The feisty
Atchison battled and fought
hard for 15 and then six yards.
With Stewart blocking, Sandlin
ran into Brackett’s prime real
estate from the 29. A problem
in the point-after attempt left
the Eagles leading 20 to 14.
The Tigers roared back with
an eight-play, 52-yard drive.
J. Young, Garrett Murff, Jake
Whitley, Hernandez, Sawyer,
R. Young and Josh Whitley
pressured and tackled, but the
Tigers went ahead 21 to 20.
There would be no third
quarter meltdown for the
Eagles this week. After a good
R. Young kickoff return and a
little help from a Tiger penalty,
Atchison got the call and hustle
50 yards to take back the lead
for the Eagles. A two-point
attempt failed: JHS-26, BHS21. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty set Eagles kicker
Dontay Foy in a 15-yard hole,
so the Tigers took possession
near mid-field.
Seizing the opportunity, the
Brackett Tigers opened their
drive with a 30-yard pass. Five
plays later, they went ahead
Apparently, this didn’t set
well with senior fullback R.
Young. After returning the
kickoff, he followed some
helpful blocking by Foy on a
trap play up the middle and on
the first play from scrimmage
shot 62 yards to score. Sandlin
followed up with a bootleg
right to add two. Eagles-34,
Tigers 27.
Murff made a TD-saving
tackle on the kickoff return and
the Junction D came on like a
swarm of hornets. On a blitz,
Murff nailed the QB. Keeton
stuffed the QB. Menchaca,
Murff and Sawyer denied a
reception, knocking away the
airborne pigskin. Another pass
attempt was almost picked off
by R. Young. Jake Whitley
charged in for a loss.
The Eagles offense were in
for three and made zero yards,
but the D was on fire, sending the Tigers offense packing
after four attempts to move the
The next Eagle drive was
not pretty. Tiger tempers
flared. Brackett received three
15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, and one player
was ejected from the game.
With this 45-yard gift from
the Tigers, Atchison made
headway with Keeton blocking. R. Young drove into the
Brackett line, legs churning for
a six-yard gain. Sandlin fought
for five more. J. Young added
13 yards. The Eagles hovered
near the Brackett goal line
for six plays. J. Young took
the ball in, but his touchdown
was nullified by a holding call,
earning a ten-yard penalty for
the Eagles. A delay-of-game
call cost the Junction Boys
another five. Then two passes
fell incomplete within yards of
the Brackett goal line.
The Eagles O wasn’t able
to convert, but the D was
rumbling. The Whitley brothers, Sawyer, R. Young and
Keeton made tackles. Then
Page 7
Jake Whitley, the 6’1”, 185 lb.
defensive tackle scooped up a
Tiger fumble and charged 16
yards for a defensive touchdown for the Junction Eagles.
His excitement, demonstrated
by his spiking the ball, earned
a 15-yard penalty, but then,
how often does a defensive
lineman get to run for a touchdown? Junction-40, Brackett
Coach Spivey sees his players improving and was particularly proud of their coming
back from the 14-0 deficit in
the early part of the game.
“They showed a lot of character,” he said. Still he sees
room for improvement. “We’ll
be working and preparing. This
is a tough district.”

public welfare.
At this time, it is not necessary to prohibit all outdoor watering unless such a
restriction is already required
under the applicable trigger
levels in your drought contingency plans. However, to
help avoid the potential need
for future suspensions and to
ensure there is enough water
for public safety needs, junior
municipal users should have
in place higher level mandatory drought contingency plan
restrictions than may otherwise
be required by their drought
contingency plans. These
restrictions apply to surface
water sources and not groundwater sources.
Therefore, please notify the
TCEQ that you have implemented those mandatory provisions of your drought contingency plan that limit outdoor sprinkler lawn watering
to once a week. You may
allow handheld hose watering for both residential and
commercial users consistent
with your drought contingency
plan. You can notify us by
using the online form available on the agency’s drought
page at: http://www.tceq.texas.
gov/response/drought. If you
need assistance with completing the form or to provide
notification and to answer any
of your questions, you can call

Public Notice
The Kimble County Commissioners Court approved Resolution No. 2011-06, a resolution and order
adopting redistricting “Plan A” for county commissioner precincts. Following the 2010 Census, the
deviation in population for Precincts 1 and 4 exceeded the constitutional limits in place to ensure that
each commissioner precinct contains an equal amount of residents under the law. Accordingly, “Plan
A” shifts 101 persons from Precinct 4 to Precinct 1 by moving their common boundary as follows:
• Precinct 1 shifts south from College Street (existing boundary) to Oak Street (proposed boundary)
between South 6th and South 16th Streets; and
• Precinct 1 shifts to include the city block bounded by South 17th, Oak, South 16th, and Walnut
On August 3, 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice issued its preclearance of this boundary change,
indicating that this boundary change complies with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Maps and additional
information are available for review in the Kimble County Judge’s Office, 501 Main Street, Junction,
Texas 76849. This public notice is published pursuant to the Texas Election Code.
Kimble Hospital is seeking an LVN or CNA for a Clinic position. Full-time with benefits. Please pick up an
