KARNES CITY, Texas -- A
surge in oil drilling is transforming this rural south Texas community -- and with it,
American energy production.
Drawn by high oil prices
and new technologies that
make it possible to extract oil
from the dense rock that lies
beneath much of the region,
major energy players are raining cash on the county and its
residents.
A similar wave is beginning
to visit parts of North Dakota,
Colorado and west Texas. The
surge in onshore oil exploration is helping reverse the
decades-long decline of domestic oil production, which
increased slightly in 2009 for
the first time in more than 20
years.
For much of this decade,
energy companies pioneered
new drilling technologies that
allowed them to recover natural gas from a subterranean
rock called shale. By drilling down and then out laterally, companies were able
to exploit greater areas of the
shale. And by injecting massive doses of water, sand and
chemicals into the ground,
they could crack open the
gas-bearing rocks, allowing
gas to flow to the surface.
The twin processes unlocked such vast gas deposits that it has led to a glut, depressing the price of natural
gas by 21% in the last year.
AAA
gan eyeing the more attractive price of oil, which, at
$84.88 a barrel after Friday’s
price drop, is still up more
than 11% in the past year.
Now they are deploying the
same drilling technology to
shale formations containing
oil.
The shale boom won’t begin to end American dependence on imported oil, but industry experts say it is driving
a significant and potentially
enduring shift in the way oil is
produced domestically.
“It’s a game-changer for
U.S. oil production,” said Bill
Durbin, head of global markets research at Wood Mackenzie. “The U.S. has always
been perceived to be a very
mature oil province with relatively little prospect for
growth. Now we’re seeing the
declines in production being arrested by the increase in
unconventional oil.”
Nationally, the balance between oil and gas exploration onshore has tilted heavily toward oil. The number
of oil-seeking rigs has nearly
tripled since June 2009, and
now makes up 42% of all rigs
in use, a prevalence not seen
since 1997, according to data
compiled by oilfield-services
company Baker Hughes Inc.
Among states, Texas has
seen the greatest increase of
rigs in the past year, adding
300, a 73% increase. North
Dakota added 83 rigs in the
last year, Oklahoma gained

Dead dogs found at Karnes County Animal
Control facility being eaten by other dogs
By Joe Baker
A phone call to the offices
of The Karnes County Times
Tuesday morning has led authorities to look into allegations of possible animal cruelty at the Karnes County
Animal Control Facility located on Riddleville Road on the
outskirts of Karnes City.
The caller said that there
were dead dogs in the pen
and that some dogs were eating the carcasses of other
dogs in the pen and that the
animals were being kept under unhealthy and inhumane
conditions.
Joe Baker, editor for The
Karnes County Times, drove
to the facility and took photos and video of the conditions there. The carcass of one
dog was visible inside what
looked like an “igloo” shaped
dog house, and photos and
video show that the carcass
was being eaten by other dogs
in the pen.
The carcass of another dog

was seen lying on the ground
just a few yards away, and
there were flies and other insects buzzing around the remains of the two dead animals.
The smell of dead animals
was in the air.
A large water container was
empty and one dog was inside trying to get a few drops
at the bottom of the galva-
nized trough.
The Karnes County Times
considered posting video of
the dogs eating parts of one
of the dead dogs at the animal
control facility on the newspaper’s web site but decided
against it because the video
was too graphic.
County Judge Alger Kendall, Jr. said he was at the facility Tuesday morning and he
saw the dead dogs but didn’t
detect any smell at that time.
Kendall said he spoke Tuesday by telephone with Animal
Control Officer Karen Hale
who is in charge of the facility.
He said that Hale had a doctor’s appointment Tuesday.
“She thought that she had
made arrangements with
one of the county employees
to feed the animals,” Kendall
said. “I don’t know if he has
been out there or not. I have
not had the chance to talk to
him, but yes, there are a couple of dead animals out there.
We’re trying to get things
worked out.”
Kendall said he didn’t believe the situation reached a
level that could be described
as animal cruelty.
“I do know she was here
yesterday and I have to believe that she fed the animals
and watered them,” Kendall
said.
The county judge said he
only became aware of the issue on Tuesday.
Although Kendall would
not pass along Hale’s phone
number, he did agree to ask
Hale to call the newspaper office and the Karnes County
Times was able to reach Hale
by telephone Tuesday afternoon.
During the interview, Hale
said that about a week ago she
was injured and on Wednesday, Nov. 10, she called the
county judge and told him
that she would not be coming
in to work. She said the county judge told her he would arrange for another worker to

Police suspect hit and run driver responsible
for death of Pettus man west of Karnes City
By Joe Baker

County Times

Police are investigating a
fatal hit and run accident
that happened on Wednesday evening, Nov. 10, about
12 miles west of Karnes City.
They are asking for the
public’s help with information that may lead to find-
ing the person or persons responsible for the accident.
According to information
from DPS Trooper Brittani
Weimer, Roy Pargmann, 59,
of Pettus, died at the scene
on FM 1144. Pargmann’s wife
found him in the roadway after what appeared to be a hit
and run collision and called
police who responded at 7:30
p.m. Pargmann lived in Pettus
but worked in Karnes County at the Connally Unit state
prison near Kenedy.
According to police, Pargmann was having a smoke
break outside while visiting
his daughter at a nearby travel trailer.
104 feet of skid marks were
visible on the roadway leading up to the point where
police believe the man was
struck. They don’t believe,
however, that speed was a
factor in the accident.
One lead is currently being
pursued by police in the investigation of this accident.
A driver side mirror was
found at the scene. The mirror is the type found on Ford
F150 pickups manufactured
between 1997 and 2004 that
have power mirrors.

Bridge Administrator Jeffrey Wiatrek, the animals

dogs were counted, including

“They are actually raising

“I didn’t know that, either.”
Jalufka said that cruelty to
animals, as defined in the
criminal statutes, requires
proof of an extraordinarily
high level of negligence, and
this case does not warrant
criminal charges at this time.

71, and Colorado picked up
30. Analysts at IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates have identified 20
significant shale prospects
across North America.
Industry executives and analysts say the growth is likely
to continue, at least as long
as oil prices remain over $70
a barrel.
“It allows us, during a time
when natural-gas prices are
somewhat suppressed, to focus our efforts on areas where
we can bring in a lot of crude
oil,” said Floyd Wilson, chief
executive of Petrohawk Energy Corp., which has been
drilling for oil in south Texas.
Karnes County lies at the
heart of the Eagle Ford Shale,
a thick layer of dense, oil-andgas-bearing rock that sits between 5,000 and 11,500 feet
beneath the surface. The
formation stretches across
more than nine counties, but
Karnes, population 15,000,
has the most rigs drilling for
oil: 13 in October, according
to RigData, a company that
publishes land rig counts.
In town, where the predominant livelihood has
been farming and ranching,
the rigs’ presence is unmistakable.
“Oil & Gas Boom!” reads a
flyer advertising an estateplanning session, taped to
the door of the county court-
house in Karnes City. The
message is apparently intended for people like Paul
Bordovsky, a retired druggist
who netted a sum “well into the six figures” after a well
on his 642-acre ranch produced nearly 34,000 barrels
of oil in its first 40 days -- far
more than he ever made raising purebred Charolais.
The courthouse itself teems
with scores of industry hands
researching land titles. Their
arrival -- along with rig workers -- is swelling demand for
lodging. Telia Diaz, the enterprising owner of the “New
Wave” hair salon in town,
converted an empty lot into
an RV Park three months ago.
The campers now provide
more income than her salon
clients, Ms. Diaz said, and she
is planning to open a second
park.
In 2006, Mark Papa, chief
executive of Houston-based
EOG Resources, steered the
company toward expanding its acreage in shale formations with large oil deposits. The industry dogma at the
time, Mr. Papa said in an interview, was that oil would
not flow out of the shale like
gas, because the molecules
are bigger. “We said, ‘We think
that’s incorrect, but let’s let
the industry continue to believe that,’ “ Mr. Papa said.
The rest of the industry
wasn’t far behind. More than

gas, and industry giants like and possible front or driv- the Karnes County Sheriff’s
ConocoPhillips and BP PLC
that are better known for drilling in far-flung fields overseas
or in deep water. Indian conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd. recently bought a
$1.3 billion stake in the field.
To be sure, natural-gas drilling in shale formations has
increasingly drawn opposition from some environmental groups, who fear the process will pollute the air and
contaminate
drinking-water supplies -- and that backlash could extend to shale-oil
drilling. If state or federal regulators crack down on drilling
operations, it could drive up
costs for companies.
But here in south Texas,
there has been little opposition, and the unexpected rise
in economic activity has been
welcomed.
Mr. Bordovsky, for one,
couldn’t be happier with ConocoPhillips, the company that
drilled the well on his ranch.
“They’ve been very, very super-good to me.”

1960 time period. Several Lion pieces were placed about
the room for decoration.
Snacks of meat and cheese,
vegetable trays, pickle-olive tray, chips and dips were
served buffet style. The dessert table held cupcakes with
white and maroon frosting and a maroon ‘60 atop
each cupcake. Peanuts, Hershey kisses wrapped in maroon, and maroon and white
M&Ms were about. Drinks
were sodas and water. Paper

p.m. The room was decorated with a Thanksgiving theme
with pumpkins, pilgrims, Indians, and a cornucopia. The
officers’ table had a vase of
American flags in honor of
Veterans Day. The hostesses were Pat Hemby, Myra Patton, and Joan Smith. Fifteen
members and two guests, Susan Thonhoff Rodriquez and
Vickie Thonhoff, were present.
The meeting was called to
order by President Patty Bedford. She then led the group
in the Lord’s Prayer and the
pledge of allegiance to the
American flag. The Happy
Birthday song for November
was sung for Pat Hemby and
Melba Wolff.
The minutes were read and
the treasurer’s report was given. A thank you note was received from Melba Wolff for
the memorial gift given by
the club to Our Savior Lutheran Church in Three Rivers in
honor of her late husband Ernest Wolff, Jr.

In Old Business Bev Davis
reminded members that she
wanted updates and changes given to her for the new
year book. Under New Business the nominating committee presented their slate of officers for the year 2011. They
were Patty Bedford, president; Diane Maitland, vicepresident; Myra Patton, treasurer; Pat Hemby, secretary.
Maxie McNally moved to
accept them by acclamation
and Shirley Frazier seconded the motion. All voted in
agreement.
The other business was a
discussion and vote on the
December luncheon meeting. It will be held on December 9 at the City Hall at 11:30
a.m. The officers will decorate and furnish the drinks
and desserts.
The other
members will bring a pot luck
dish. Shirley Frazier and Diane Maitland suggested that
we continue last year’s decision to exchange a Christmas
ornament (not more than a
$5 value) and each member
donate $5 to the Thrift Center. It was agreed upon by all
present.
The meeting was adjourned and turned over to
the hostesses. Jo Ann Kroll
won the hostess’ gift and
guest Susan Rodriquez won
the door prize. The gift was
a decorated gourd with Happy Thanksgiving written on
it. The craft presented by the
hostesses was a small green
Christmas wreath decorated with red buttons and a red
bow. It may be used as a tree
ornament and a small photo
could be placed in the center
if desired. After finishing the
craft members enjoyed refreshments and fellowship.
Bev Davis brought some
Christmas wreaths and candle holders made by a friend
to sell to members who
wished to buy them. She also said she would deliver any
gifts brought to be given to
the Wounded Warriors in San
Antonio.

Eating Up
By Amelia Simmons
To stuff or not to stuff? That is the question this Thanksgiving. And is stuffing synonymous with dressing?
The term dressing came into use in the
nineteenth century because it sounded
more prim and proper than stuffing. But a
more popular distinction is that dressing is
the mixture cooked “outside” the animal to
be eaten and stuffing is the mixture actually
inserted into the animal (usually a fowl) before it is cooked. Dressing is the more widely used term in the South and is virtually unused in Europe. Here, dressing retains
its other meaning as it refers to the cleaning and skinning of an animal that has been
killed in the field and now must be made table ready.
Dressing has a culinary function. It enhances the moisture content of the meat.
Be careful though to cook the dressing thoroughly as it makes contact with the potentially contaminating raw meat juices.
Convenience and concerns about undercooking have made baking the dressing in
a pan the default for many cooks and it has
other advantages: you get a crispy topping
and more stuffing.
While there’s a maxim of anything goes
when it comes to stuffing; this can result in
a dressing that’s just a mish mash of ingredients. In the kitchen, simpler is usually better, at least in this humble cook’s opinion.
So identify the main flavor note and stick
with it.
Everyone has their favorites, but here are
a couple of ideas for consideration this holiday season.
Wild Rice stuffing with Pine Nuts
¼ cup olive oil
1 ½ tsps cumin
1 large onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves
1 tblsps tomato paste
2 tblsps fresh thyme
1 ¼ tsps salt
1 ¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp mint
1 cup wild rice
1 cup white rice
1 ¾ cups chicken broth
1 tblsp fresh lemon juice
½ cup pine nuts, toasted
Heat the oil in a large pot, add cumin and toast
lightly for 15 seconds. Add onion and garlic and
sauté until tender, stir in the tomato paste. Stir
in the thyme, salt and pepper, and mint. Add
wild rice, stir 2 minutes. Add the stock and bring
to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Sim-
mer until the rice is tender about 40 minutes. Off
heat, stir in the white rice. Cover the pot and simmer about 20 minutes more until the white rice is
tender and the liquid gone. Add the lemon juice,
the nuts and the parsley and serve.
Cornbread and chile stuffing
1 cup butter
3 cups chopped white onion
5 garlic cloves, minced
18 ounces fresh Anaheim chilies, seeded and
chopped
18 ounces fresh poblano chilies, seeded and
chopped
4 fresh jalapenos, seeded and chopped
1 tblsps ground New Mexican chili powder
1 tblsp kosher salt
¾ tsp. pepper
¾ tsp. cumin
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 loaf of masa cornbread
6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
4 large eggs
1 cup chicken broth
Melt butter in skillet and add the onions and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add the chiles and soften
for 12 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, salt and
pepper and cumin. Set aside.
Stir the cilantro into the mixture, toss in the cheese.
Whisk the eggs and broth the pour over the stuffing and combine. Cube the loaf to cornbread and
add to the bowl. Pour the stuffing into a prepared
greased baking dish, cover with buttered foil and
bake about 30 minutes in a 350 oven. Remove the
foil and bake for another 30 minutes until the top
is golden.
Masa cornbread
1 cup masa
2 tsps plus ½ cup vegetable oil
1 2/3 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1 ½ cups yellow cornmeal
½ cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
4 teaspoons sugar
1 ½ tsp. salt
Spread the masa on a large baking sheet and toast
it in a 400 oven for 8 minutes. Cool. Coat a baking pan with the 2 tsps oil. Whisk the ½ cup oil,
buttermilk and eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk together the dry ingredients and pour the buttermilk mixture into the bowl. Combine. Bake cornbread until the edges are lightly browned, about
15 minutes. Cool completely and turn out of pan.
Store the cornbread for one day before using in the
stuffing.
NRCS announces farm oil
spill regulation initiative
NRCS Announces Pilot Initiative to Help Farmers and
Ranchers Comply with OnFarm Oil Spill Regulation
Technical and financial assistance is available in Texas to help farmers develop oil
spill contingency plans and
provide secondary oil spill
containment
TEMPLE, Nov. 9, 2010—
USDA’s Natural Resources
Conservation Service (NRCS)
in Texas is piloting an Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) Conservation Activity Plan program
to assist farmers and ranchers comply with revised regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
intended to prevent and mitigate fuel and oil spills on their
operations.
“An important part of our
mission at NRCS is helping
farmers and ranchers develop plans to protect human
health and the environment,
including assistance complying new regulations,” said
Salvador Salinas, NRCS Texas
Acting State Conservationist.
“This pilot program will help
agricultural producers meet a
new regulatory requirement
designed to reduce the dangers of on-farm oil spills.”
This program is designed
to help farmers and ranchers that have above ground
storage tank facilities with
the capacity to store more
than 1,320 gallons of fuel.
The EPA mandates that agricultural operations with concentrated fuel depots have a
Spill Prevention Containment
and Countermeasure (SPCC)
plan and an Agricultural Secondary Containment Facility.
NRCS will help develop or update existing spill prevention
plans that avoid and mitigate
on-farm oil spillage.
There are two opportunities for assistance. For those
facilities that have more than
10,000 gallons of fuel, oil and
lubricants, NRCS will provide
$2500 for the development
of the SPCC plan. The plan
will be developed by a private
firm that has registered with
NRCS to have the technical
knowledge, skills and abilities
to complete all facets of the
plan. For those operations
that do not have an Agricultural Secondary Containment
Facility, NRCS will assist with
the installation of the practice
up to $10,000.
Assistance with these two
opportunities is available
now at your local NRCS field
office as applications are currently being taken. The program will have two ranking
periods for applications received. The first will be January 28, 2011, and a second
ranking period that will occur
for applications on hand as of
June 3, 2011.
Farmers and ranchers who
need assistance should contact NRCS at their nearest USDA Service Center. For more
information or to locate a service center online, visit the
NRCS Texas website at http://

In her letter-to-the-editor
in the November 11 edition
of the Karnes County Times,
Stacy L. Kanak expresses her
worries about truckers not
driving considerately and not
adhering the rules of the road.
From my experience as an avid bicyclist on Karnes County
roads, I cannot but disagree
with her opinion. True: traffic of big 18-wheelers has in-
creased considerably. But I
have always found the truck
drivers to obey the rules of
traffic and to be very considerate to me as a bicyclist.
They always give me as wide a
berth as possible. When overtaking is not possible without
endangering me they slow
down and stay behind me until I can signal them it is safe
to pass. And never once have
I experienced that they pass
too close to me and/or honk
when passing, just for fun
and to scare me, as some other drivers do. I can only state
that I feel much safer when a
big 18-wheeler is coming up
behind me than when it is a
regular car, especially since
nowadays many car drivers are talking on their cell
phones or, even worse, texting, and I am thankful for the
truckers being so considerate.
Sincerely,
Pit Vins
Snuggling time
Joe
Brubaker
Folks as the temperature drops and we get
colder it is time to snuggle. At least that is
what we called it up north.
As I grew up experiencing temperatures
well below zero it sure helped to have another person to snuggle with.
In those days we had no central heating
system. We had a large kitchen range cook
stove in the kitchen, and a small heating
stove in the living room. The bed rooms were
all up stairs with no heat. We had no bathroom so we bathed in a large metal tub by
the stove in the kitchen. This also meant that
if you needed to relive yourself you took the
cold path to the outdoor privy.
When really cold weather came up north
and I was young you took every measure you
could to stay warm and snuggling was one
method we used. Now teenage boys and girls
seemed to engage in this practice more than
the rest of us.
School buses were very cold also. So snuggling was quite prevalent among the high
school students.
Our school was located between two small
towns so we had rural route school busses
and town busses. There were boy’s town busses and girl’s town busses.
When I was young I never understood why
the town kids had boy and girl busses.
Later on I figured out that the Administrators knew it would cut out the so called snuggling.
Be that as it may snuggling was and is a
good practice to help a couple keep warm.
So if it gets really cold down here just snuggle up with another person and enjoy the
comfort this brings.

Don’t be an Old Fogey,
baggy look is IN
Willis
Webb
For someone 60 or older, there’s nothing like a pair of pants sliding down around
your hips to teach a little tolerance, not to
mention reminding you that every generation has its defining fashions.
Today, younger folks (and some older
who want to be with it) like the relaxed look.
Baggy is in. Baggy to today’s youngsters is
just “loose,” “comfortable.”
In the 1950s, if a guy’s pants slipped an
inch or so below his waist, he was labeled a
“slob” at best, a “hoodlum” at worst or, teasingly, “old droopy drawers.”
If there was a gap between the shirttail and the top of his pants, then he might
be dragged to the principal’s office for discipline that would guarantee the proper
pants position. Some flexibility came with
shirts. If shirts had “tails,” you know, the
kind you’d find on something called a “dress
shirt,” then it definitely was supposed to be
tucked in your pants. A “sports shirt” usually had a squared-off bottom hem and it was
acceptable, although not cool, to be worn
untucked.
Jeans were called “blue jeans” because
the dark blue denim was the only look, no
other colors and no faded look unless you
were so poor you had to wear the jeans
a couple of years until all the color was
washed out. The in-crowd wore Levis. A few
wore Lee Riders and the “cowboys” wore
Wranglers. But all jeans were “blue jeans.”
Initially, nice leather belts were the rule of
the day unless you were in FFA/vo-ag, then
a western belt was defining. At some point,
in defiance of rules about keeping your
pants cinched up to stay at the right spot on
your waist, guys began to go beltless.
For a short time in the Fifties, color came
into guys’ fashion world. Instead of blue
jeans and shirts of rather subtle (even plaids
and checks) colors, pink (a former “sissy” color to boys) was IN. Every guy had a
pink shirt. Some even had pink or navy blue
suede belts and, instead of black or brown
loafers, blue suede (lace-up) shoes held
forth for a year or so. Really dressed up guys
had black slacks with pink stitching and
that called for a black or pink suede belt.
Daring stylishness might require black
slacks with “peg legs.” Such a fashion would
have a normal fit in the waist but the pants
would be “‘pegged” (tight) at the ankle, giving the legs an almost balloon-like look. Really cool guys might have pink stitching
down the outer seams of the legs. Guys who
wore pegged pants usually listened to “jazz”
instead of rock and roll like the Levis guys or
“hillbilly” (country-western) like the Wrangler-clad FFA boys. None of those demarcations were really solid.
On the cutting edge of fads in shirts was
the “smart aleck” (according to older folks)
act of turning up the part of your collar on
the back of your neck. This required a wellstarched-and-ironed (no perma-press then)
collar that you could crease on each side of
your neck so that the points laid down in
the front (button down was even cooler).
Jeans were rolled up two turns at the ankle so that a minimum of two inches of sock
(always white) showed between the bottom
of the pants and the top of the loafers.
Hair was another matter. It could be
combed back on each side to form “duck
tails” in the back, if you were really cool. Of
course, the oily look was prominent. Some
were daring with “burrs” (a buzz cut) or flattops.
All of this came to mind because I complained to Life Mate about my pants sliding
down to my hips.
“Listen, dear Old Fogey,” she said through
her most charming smile, “you need to buy
‘regular fit’ jeans. That’s what stores call the
O.F. section.”
So, lest you want to be called an O.F., don’t
make fun of today’s relaxed look. Chill. Go
for the regular fit.

Lions fall to Wildcats
in overtime, 36-29
PHOTO BY JAMIE MCKEE
Kenedy’s Sebastianh Salas fights off Yorktown defenders during Friday night’s playoff game .
By James Ratcliff
For the first time since 1999,
the Kenedy Lions made the
postseason, this time in the
Class A Division I playoffs. For
the second time this season,
the Yorktown Wildcats stood
in their way. Like their first encounter, this game on Friday
night in Seguin went down to
the wire and into overtime.
In overtime, however, the
Wildcats would make a goal
line stand to deny the Lions
a chance to extend the game
any further and hand them a
36-29 defeat. “We had an opportunity to win in overtime,”
said Kenedy Head Coach Lin
Havron. “The Barefield kids
for Yorktown played well.”
The entire game, as expected, was kept really close. In
the 1st quarter, Kenedy drew
first blood as Sr. Tray Vickery
scored the Lions’ first touch-
down on a 4-yard run. Sr. QB
Rhett Bell would add the PAT
to go up 7-0 with 4:48 left in
the quarter. Bell would go
on to convert all three of his
PAT attempts on the night. As
time expired in the 1st quarter, however, the Wildcats responded with a 5-yard rushing TD by Derek Franke with
Kolbe Ybarra kicking the extra point. Like Bell on the Lions’ sideline, Ybarra would
convert all of his extra point
attempts on the night. The
Wildcats would score first in
the 2nd quarter as, with 10:12
to go, QB Erin Barefield scampered and found the end
zone on a 48-yard TD run.
The Lions would roar back at
the 7:38 mark as Bell found Sr.
Jake Havron on a 41-yard TD
pass. The remainder of the
quarter saw both teams play
tough defense and the score
stood at a 14-14 tie as both
teams headed for the locker room and, as was the case
in other games in the San Antonio area on Friday night,
lightning delayed the game.
Yet, both teams would take
the field after the delay and
pick up where they left off.
Like the first half, the
second half was too close to
call. The Lions would fire the
first salvo in the 3rd quarter
as Bell scored on a 37-yard
run with 5:32 on the clock.
The Wildcats would pounce
back in the 4th quarter with
a QB TD run of their own as
Barefield scored on a 4-yard
run at the 9:23 mark to knot
things up at 21-21. The last
few minutes of the 4th quarter was where things became
unpredictable. With 1:04 left
in regulation, Sophomore Rolie Zepeda caught a pass from
Bell and scored on an 18-yard
pass. On the botched PAT,
however, Bell showed great
awareness and took the ball
to the end zone himself for
a 2-point conversion to give
the Lions a 29-21 advantage.
Yorktown, seeing what they
had to do, would respond in
kind as Barefield scored on a
29-yard run with 29 seconds
to go. On the 2-point attempt,
Barefield found Tevin Slade
and fired a rocket for the conversion and that would be
enough to send the game into overtime knotted up at
29-29. Yorktown would get
the ball first in overtime and
took advantage of that opportunity. It was Barefield to
Barefield for the Wildcats as
QB Erin Barefield found WR
Jayden Barefield on a 10-yard
pass for the score to go up 3629 after Ybarra’s kick. Kenedy
would get a turn to score, but
the Wildcat defense denied
them at the goal line and the
Lions would run out of downs
to give the Wildcats the victory. Havron, however, did not
let this game put a damper on
the Lions’ accomplishments.
“This team has really overachieved. This season may
turn our program around
and hopefully it was what this
program needed to succeed.”
With the loss, the Kenedy Lions’ season is now complete and they finish with a
4-6 overall record and a postseason appearance for the
first time in over a decade.
Havron credits this effort to
his teams’ attitude and fortitude. “It’s what we’ve been
preaching all season. Their
perseverance and buying into what we teach helped us
get here. We hope to continue
that in the seasons to come.”

San Saba shuts down Badgers, 14-0
By James Ratcliff
In Dripping Springs on Friday night, the Karnes City
Badgers and the San Saba Armadillos faced off in a blustery and chilly Bi-District
contest in the Class 2A Division II playoffs. With conditions ripe to make things
interesting, the Badgers’ defense along with the Armadillos’ defense played what
seemed like a chess match on
the gridiron. However, the Armadillos managed to capitalize off of miscues and turnovers by the Badgers and
handed Karnes City a decisive 14-0 defeat to send them
home after the first round of
the postseason. Despite the
abrupt exit, Karnes City finishes the season at 9-2. “Anytime you win nine games in a
season, it’s a successful season,” said Karnes City Head
Coach Tom Warlick. “The kids
played their hearts out and
I couldn’t ask for anything
more from them.”
The first half’s lone
score came from the Armadillos in the 1st quarter as
they kept it on the ground
and capped a drive in the first
quarter with the touchdown
and the extra point following. The Badgers and the Armadillos traded possessions

[email protected]: The Dolpins finally get a home win
but at a costly price. Two QBs
hurt and a hand full others.
Now Tyler Thigpen needs to
work some more magic like
he did in the win against the
Titans last week or else the
Dolphins can count on a long
6 more weeks. The Bears have
had thier ups and downs as
well and are coming off a big
win over the Vikings. It just

the Bills finally won a game.
Well I hoped they enjoyed it!
Bengals 31-21
[email protected]: Who
would have thought that the
Raiders would be in first in
their division and just one
game back of Pittsburgh at
this point. As for the Steelers
they fell to the Patriots and if
they don’t watch it they will
fall to the Raiders who are
playing very well this season.
Raiders 24-23

Wow what a finish in Houston
last week as the miracle catch
and probably the play of the
year took place. The Browns
almost forced the Jets into
a tie if only the defense was

A Moderate Sanity
By Matthew Winn
Badger Times Co-Editor
“Extreme positions are not succeeded by moderate ones, but by
contrary extreme positions” said
German philosopher Friedrich
Nietzsche. This quote sums up
this year’s midterm elections
which can only be called a circus. The elections have proved
only one thing to me this year.
It is no longer simply Republican against Democrat; instead
it is neo conservatives against
ultraliberals.
Ever since America was
formed there have been opposing factions within the government. The first conflict in
congress came between the
Anti-Federalists and the Federalists who argued over the
ratification of the Constitution.
Eventually the states’ rights Anti-Federalists and the national
government Federalists reached
a compromise. Today there is
no longer such a thing as a reasonable compromise in politics
or congress for that matter. This
year’s elections have shown me
that America plans to counter an
extreme Democrat government
with an even more extreme Republican faction known as the
Tea Party.
The Tea Party is a grass roots
movement that was formed by
Americans angry over Washington’s bailing out of Wall Street
and the growing national deficit. The Tea Party believes that
spending is out of control, and in
my opinion I completely agree
with them. What I do not agree
with is their extreme policy
proposals to cut spending. The
Tea Party proposes that we reduce taxes by a drastic amount,
but by doing this we lose funding to states with already tight
budgets. When people hear the
word taxes, they automatically
despise them, when in essence
that’s what funds our school
systems and helps build infrastructure. So would you rather
have a little extra cash? Or
would you rather live without
decent roads and education? I
for one choose to have education.
On the other side of the ballot we have the Democrats, or
the ultraliberals, as I like to call
them. These are the people
who have spent their way out
of everything and are proud of
it. While we average people cut
costs and use coupons, investors on Wall Street hit golf balls
off their 200ft yachts because
of recent liberal bailouts. This
is nothing less than pure insanity. Aside from the bailouts of
giant corporations, the “Blue
Dogs” have championed health
care reform. I believe the idea
of health care reform is progressive and intelligent, but at the
same it time causes problems
for privatized businesses. In a
time of financial instability, we
cannot have the government
competing with privatized businesses. Clearly the government
has the advantage. This nation’s
economy relies on competition
between businesses resulting
in fair prices and giving each
a chance to succeed, but a government run healthcare would
in essence be a monopoly.
So where has the sanity gone
in world? Why is everyone so
extreme? The truth is that the
majority of Americans are not
extreme. They are actually
reasonable people. The problem is that reasonable moderates don’t get the same news
coverage and attention as the
Christine O’ Donnell’s and
Nancy Pelosi’s. The American media makes it seem like
everyone is either a Democrat
or Republican, but this is far
from the truth. Most people
I know happen to be moderates - people who are rational
and can actually sit down and
discuss important issues without calling each other a communist. The truth of the matter
is that moderates are the hardworking Americans who don’t
have time to picket the steps
of Washington. Moderates’
voices are not heard because
they are too busy working to
put food on the table.
I don’t believe it is
wrong to be either a Republican or a Democrat. I do believe that with regard to politics, everyone should consider
both sides of an issue in a rational manner. After all, rational thinking is what America is
truly founded upon.

Being an active member of my
community will help my generation. It will help me because helping the community will make my
community a better place to live.
By being a better place to live will
give me better opportunities and
provide a better life. When I volunteer it gives me a name for they can
know that I helped out in the community. For if I help people, they
know that they can rely on me and
I can rely on them. Another way to
be an active part of my community
is to attend the monthly city council meetings.
I can voice my opinions at these
meetings and can listen to what is
going on in the community. When I
get older I can run for mayor or
city council. In order to do this I
need to be a better informed citizen.
Voting in elections, both local and
national, is an obligation that the
younger generation does not take
seriously. We are going to work
and change those attitudes. My
generation needs to realize that
every vote counts and it is their
responsibility to do their duty and
vote.
In conclusion, my generation
has an important role in America’s
future. We must be active and well
informed citizens to make America
successful. We need to be responsible for our actions. We need to be
more serious at what we do to
make the future better.

Astronomers set up shop at Pawnee school
Saturday was clear and
cool—perfect for gazing at the
stars in the dark sky. Six San
Antonio Astronomical Association volunteers arrived in
Pawnee and set up five large
reflecting telescopes and one
refracting telescope.
The
scopes were trained on Jupiter, the Andromeda Galaxy,
the ET Star Cluster, and a ring
nebula. The astronomers told
us Pawnee’s skies are darker
than those in San Antonio because we have less light pollution. Our star guides pointed
out the Milky Way, the Summer Triangle, the Pleiades,
Cassiopeia, and the square of
Pegasus using a green laser.
We also saw several satellites
passing by quickly.
The ACE program sponsored the meal prepared for
over 100 hungry stargaz-
ers. We were served barbecue on a bun, homemade potato salad, and pinto beans.
For dessert we had cupcakes
that were sprinkled with little stars.
After the meal, we watched
a short video presentation
that showed some wonderful photographs taken by the
Hubble Telescope. The Hubble Telescope has been called
the most successful science
project of all time because of
the enormous amount of new
information we have learned
from the photos taken in outer space.
The star gazing lasted for
about an hour and a half.
Lines formed at the different telescopes. Some scopes
were so large that a ladder
was needed to reach the eyepiece. The volunteers pa-
tiently answered a myriad of
questions about stars, planets, and nebulae. The association does not charge a fee
to do their outreach program,
but they do accept donations.
The Pawnee PTO and the ACE
program helped to pay some
of the club’s expenses for
coming to Pawnee.
Bill Ballentine, the public
outreach coordinator, sent a
nice thank you to Pawnee for
inviting them to come for the
star party. They said, “Your
skies and your students were
almost perfect.” What a lovely compliment to our Pawnee students. We are looking forward to having another
star party next year to be held
when the moon will be visible.

“Men and Women
Relationships”
The presence of the Lord
showed up mightily this
morning as praise and worship ushered God in. Many
went up for prayer as God
ministered to them.
Pastor Jim Pogue’s opening statement during sermon time was that God wants
each of us to know how much
He loves us; that we exist because of His great love. Our
very foundation in God is that
He created each of us for His
own purpose to love Him with
all our heart, mind, soul and
spirit and our neighbor as our
self as Matthew 22:37-40 says.
It pleases God to no end and
puts a smile on His face when
we love Him with all our
hearts, mind, soul and spirit and our neighbors as ourselves. This pleases God wonderfully well and adds joy in
our own lives!
The reason God created
man and female was for the
purpose for marriage and today, Pastor Jim started a new
series on relationships between men and women within the context of the Bible.
Genesis 1:26 reports God saying He wanted to make man
in His own image. Adam was
the first man and was created out of the dust of the earth
and told to name all the animals of the earth. Can you
imagine how smart Adam
must have been to name over
10,000 animals?
In Genesis 2:20, Adam
is seen needing someone
to help him, an intellectual equal; so God puts him to
sleep taking a rib from Adam to form the first woman,
named Eve. Notice God did
not use dust to make Eve nor
did He use part of Adam’s foot
or head but his rib. God used
a rib from Adam so she could
be close to Adam’s heart and
was sculptured by God’s own
hand! Imagine that! God used
dust to create man but a rib
was used for woman!
Our service today ended
with Communion in which
the presence of the Lord filled
the place.
Ending
anouncements
made by Pastors Jim and
Yvonne Pogue are our
Thanksgiving meal to be held
next week immediately after
our church service at 10:00
am! Please come and bring

St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church news

Pentecost Twenty-five was
celebrated at St. Matthew’s
Episcopal Church of Kenedy with Deacon Beverly Patterson as pastor. Neil Nichols served as the Lay Minister
and Jose and Salome’ Ramirez
were the Readers.
The First Reading was Isaiah 65:17-25. God promises
his people that he will build
Jerusalem for them and it
will be a wonderful productive place to live. “They shall
not labor in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they
shall be offspring blessed by
the Lord.”
The Second Reading was 2
Thessalonians 3:6-13. Paul is
explaining to the people that
they must not be idle and expect things to be handed to
them. “Anyone unwilling to
work should not eat……..
Brothers and sisters, do not
be weary in doing what is
right.”
Deacon Patterson read the
Gospel according to Luke
21:5-19. Jesus was in the temple and heard his followers
commenting on its beauty
and how it was adorned. Jesus warned them that one
day the temple would be destroyed and the world as
they knew it would no longer
be. They all wanted to know
when this would happen and
asked that he give them a
sign to warn them. Jesus told
them that many things would
happen that might indicate
the end, but they should not
believe in them. They also
might be caused to suffer for
their belief in him. “You will
be hated by all because of my
name. But not a hair of your
head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your
souls.”
Deacon Patterson told of
five churches in Chicago that
she visited and how different they all were even though
they all were places to worship God. They had different
architecture and invoked different moods and emotions,
such as awe, joy, and pain.
However, they were all precious and reflected their relationship with God.
The Temple in Jerusalem
reflected the manner of the
way the Jews worshiped God.
It took seven years to build
and caused mixed feelings
in the people. It was a center of national pride and worship. Many came there but
did not truly worship God in
their sacrifices offered. The
temple was destroyed a number of times and finally was
restored. Jesus spoke at the
temple often and saw how
the people admired its beauty. He was concerned about
their real feelings and beliefs. Jesus told them that one
day the temple would be destroyed and return to dust.
He explained to them that
no one would know the day
He would return for them.
When he comes, the heaven and earth will reverberate in his power and glory.
The important thing to consider was their personal relationship with God rather than
worshiping material things.
In the midst of chaos and destruction, there is redemption and life. Don’t put your
faith in temporal things, but
in God who saves us.

The devotion for this week
is “Holding my Tongue” by
Desiree Buehring.
Scripture is from Proverbs 10:20,
“When words are many, sin is
not absent, but he who holds
his tongue is wise.”
When I am mad at my sister, which I am quite often, I
always end up saying something I don’t mean to say. I
try really hard to “bite my
tongue”. But my anger and
hatred get the best of me. I
need God to help me keep my
tongue in check. I hope I can
hold my tongue.
Thought: Think before you
speak or hold your tongue.
Prayer: Lord, help me hold
my tongue even when I am
mad and help other people
“bite their tongue” when they
are mad. Amen.

“Living in a World
of Violence”
Signs of the end of the world
are always visible with countless warnings but we as a people of peace know from Scriptures hot to survive and live
in the “meantimes” was the
message found in the homily of the Rev. David W. Collins
III, pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, on the 25th Sunday after Pentecost.
Both Old and New Testaments give ominous descriptions of the final days but we
the baptized and strengthened for the living of these
days by His Word and the
sacrament. “Thy kingdom
come” we request in the
Lord’s Prayer so we must live
and believe within the promise. Though violence and
chaos is found around us and
throughout the world, we
abide for a future time and
place that God has promised
from the beginning.
Meantime there is the injustice on every level of civilization, local and abroad. We
are left pondering about how
can we make a difference in
this fiery world. Some steps
are the beginning and invovlement when we see wrong
being done. We can altar ourselves and try to work with the
process of bringing changes
where there is injustice. Family violence among adults
and children arouse our ire.
Criminals who commit unrealistic deeds against individuals and organizations need to
be stopped from their driven
course of actiion. Civil rights
movements link back to the
past but the practices still
continue in may forms. Individuals in faraway lands come
to mind who have been or are
presently imprisoned when
they act and speak against
the practices in their land and
society. Those on the negative side are lusting for power and security but our purpose in life should be to bring
hope and change to the consequences of those who are
victims in this struggle.
The Holy Scriptures, read
by Shelley Gibbens, were taken from Malachi, Psalm 98, 2
Thessalonians, and the Gospel of Luke 21:5-19.
Prayers for the comfort of
those who are ill, whether
in nursing facilities or home
shut-ins, and the guidance
to lead us to assist those in
need were made, especially
for Norma Zamzow, Audrey
Miller, Paula Pfifer, Mary Lou
Fenner, Ida Mae Boldt, Elbert Martin, and Bill Hassell.
With the recent Veteran’s Day
and our prayers for those who
are willing to serve in behalf
of our country in these troubled times was added the request they are kept safe and
returned to their families, the
congregation participated in
singing “The Battle Hymn of
the Republic.”
From the Church Council comes these announcements: 1) Decorations for Advent Christmas season will be
done on Saturday, November
27 rom 4-6pm; 2) Synod VicePresident Carl Tienert will

The Church Uniquely
Common: Different and Yet
the Same - Part 2
In this second part of the
series Pastor John Wheat
describes how the Church
membership is made up of
the Body of Christ using Corinthians 12:12-24 as reference.
In this example, Wheat told
the congregation sometimes
the “body” doesn’t work very
well. Sometimes there are
hiccups… struggles when the
body doesn’t work well, but…
“A church that works well together has an impact on the
lives of family”.
When Paul wrote to the
church in Corinth, it was going through struggles. Paul
tried to help them understand what God expected of
them and what their relationship with Jesus ought to
bring about. He told them
they were a “body” and the
body works together. In verse
12 Paul says, “The body is a
unit, though it is made up of
many parts; and though all its
parts are many, they form one
body. So it is with Christ. For
we were all baptized by one
Spirit into one body – whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free
– and we were all given the
one Spirit to drink.”
Wheat explained what Paul
wrote by saying, “We as a
church, though we are many
people, are one. Though we
are unique, we are common.
Though we are different, we
are the same. It’s like a body.
Paul is trying to use the illustration of a body to help them
understand the concept that
they should have as they live
together… He says though it
[the body] has many parts,
it’s only one body because the
one thing that brought you
into this body is… one Spirit - one Testament. There’s
one Jesus. It’s in that faith in
Jesus that you come to understand you are part of the
Body and by being a part of
the Body, you’re important…
Everybody is part of the same
body.”
In verses 14-20, Paul continues to write, “Now the
body is not made up of one
part but of many. If the foot
should say, ‘Because I am not
a hand, I do not belong to the
body,’ it would not for that
reason cease to be part of the
body. And if the ear should
say, ‘Because I am not an eye,
I do not belong to the body,’
it would not for that reason
cease to be part of the body.
If the whole body were an
eye, where would the sense of
hearing be? If the whole body
were an ear, where would the
sense of smell be? But in fact
God has arranged the parts in
the body, every one of them,
just as He wanted them to
be. If they were all one part,
where would the body be? As
it is, there are many parts, but
one body.”
Wheat went on to say that
while we are a part of this
body, we are still unique. And,
while we are unique, we also
need each other. “Parts of the
body were created to be together and work together. Just
as Paul writes to the church
in Corinth, we are a part of
the Body, but we are to be
unique and yet, at the same
time, common; Different, and
yet the same. Just because we
are not like somebody else
does not mean we are not important. We need to be careful when we are comparing
and contrasting who we are
in the church, and who somebody else is in the church. The
scripture says God has placed
us here as He sees fit, and He
wants us to measure up and
be a part of what God has
asked us to do. And, so you
have been placed in this Body
by your faith in Jesus Christ
and you have an important
part – and when you’re not
here, we have a body that’s
not complete. And, when
we’re not working together
as a team, and as a fellowship
and as a body, we have a body
that doesn’t function. Just
because we’re not the same
doesn’t mean we’re not a part,
because the body has many
parts and yet, there’s only one
body.”
Scripture goes on to tell us
that each part of the body,
whether weaker or less presentable, is just as important
as the rest of the parts. Each
part of the body is just as important as the next. Verse 26
says, “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one
part is honored, ever part rejoices with it.” Everyone is a
vital part of the Body and, in
turn, part of each other. “You
are needed and God needs us
to work together.. As we rise
and fall as a church, we do so
together,” said Wheat.
Wheat concluded with,
“We would say in summary there’s not one of us that’s
more important or less im-
portant, but that everybody is
needed. And when we’re not
connected and tied into and
part of the mission and the
great commission that God
has called us to, then we’re
missing a little bit. It’s almost
like an engine that’s not running on all of its cylinders.
It may need a tune-up, and
sometimes we’re like that as
a body. Sometimes we need
tune-ups.
You know one of the great
things that we do every Sunday as we get together and we
remember the goodness of
God… we hopefully remember the purpose and the plan
of God as we leave - that we
continue to be the Church,
not just as we’ve gathered
here, but to be the Church as
we go out there.
And yet there’s still some
struggles we have inside the
Body. You know and I know
some people, too, that feel
like they don’t need us anymore. They’re fine, they’re
okay - they don’t need the
Church. They’re going to do
everything they can without
being a part of the Body…
Christ has no body but ours.
Christ has no hands but ours.
Christ has no feet but ours.
Ours are the eyes through
which Christ’s compassion
for the world are to look out.
Ours are the feet with which
He is to go about doing good,
and ours are His hands with
which He is to bless others. A
Body at work, together, moving in the same direction is a
beautiful thing. God intends
for us to continue to be that
Body.
How do you get into that
Body? …By faith in Jesus
Christ as your Lord and Savior. We come to a place of recognizing that we no longer
are in control of this life that
we live, but we yield and we
transfer the title of our life to
Jesus. And then, for the rest
of our time this side of death,
we listen to the Lord. Through
the leanings of the Holy Spirit and the yearnings He places
within us to follow God, and
His plan, and His purpose.”
We invite you to join us next
Sunday for the conclusion of
“The Church Uniquely Common”. First Baptist Church
Kenedy is located at 209 E.
School Street in Kenedy, TX.

Forgiveness – Part 2
Last week we talked about
what forgiveness is. This
week let’s talk about what forgiveness is not.
Forgiveness is such a complex issue because it appears
as though you’re letting the
other person get away with
the offense. If you forgive, it
feels as though you are saying, “My pain isn’t real. This
stab to my heart and the pain
of rejection doesn’t matter.”
Your wounds are real, and
they are important to God. He
never wants to see you hurt.
You do not need to make excuses for your feelings or pretend to other people that you
were not hurt that badly. This
behavior does not solve anything. Be honest. You were
hurt, and it’s lousy. But physical and emotional wounds
should not keep you from forgiveness.
When you forgive someone, it does not release that
person from being responsible for his or her actions.
It does release you from orbiting around those hurtful
events.
“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who
persecute you” (Matthew
5:44).
You do not need to justify
the other person’s behavior
in order to forgive. Some people mistakenly think forgiveness only occurs when you
finally understand or can rationalize why the other person did a certain thing or acted a certain way. Forgiveness
is acknowledging that what
the other person did was not
right and giving it up to God.
Then? Remind yourself daily
to walk with God. Thank Him
for giving you the strength to
move forward, even when the
pain wants to hold you back.
“Cast your burden on
the LORD, and He will support you; He will never allow
the righteous to be shaken.”
(Psalm 55:22).
Forgiveness does not mean
you have to trust the other person again. Forgiveness
and trust are two different
things, and neither one is dependent on the other. Trust
is giving a person the benefit
of the doubt that he or she is
not going to behave a certain
way in the future. However,
forgiveness is simply putting
down the load, never to pick
it up again. Two totally different things!
Trust is something that
needs to be earned, especially if the other person has broken your trust at some point.
Learning to trust another
person again can take a long
time, and sometimes you will
never trust that person because he or she may continue to betray your trust. God,
on the other hand, can always
be trusted. He will not betray
you or let you down, and He
can teach you to forgive.
“Those who know Your
name trust in You because
You have not abandoned
those who seek You, Lord.”
(Psalm 9:10).
If you do not forgive, you
may get in the way of the work
God is trying to do in the other person’s life, or yours.
When you forgive, you allow God to work in the other
person’s life. Choosing to walk
in obedience has a net positive effect on you and on people around you. Keep persevering in prayer for those who
have hurt you. As Paul says in
Philippians, “Keep pressing
on.”
“Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold
of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and
reaching forward what is
ahead, I pursue as my goal
the prize promised by God’s
heavenly call in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 3:13-14).
Forgiving someone does
not mean you are letting
that person off the hook. The
wrongs that have been done
to you need to be righted, but
it is not your responsibility to
bring that about. God is a just
and righteous judge. He is the
only one who can judge and
condemn a person for an unrepentant heart. This is not
your job and should not be
your job.
Another pastor once explained forgiveness this way:
“When you forgive, it seems
like you’re taking that person
off the hook. But what you’re
really doing is taking him or
her off your hook and allowing God to put that person on
His hook. As long as you have
that person on your hook,
you block God from that person and you also block God
from you.” Your job is to be
right with God, and not seek
vengeance or retribution, or
hold on to blame. You must
let go of that person’s wrongdoing so you can be right with
the Lord.
“It’s not a matter of how you
feel,” says Harold Graham.
“It’s not even a matter of how
you think. It’s a matter of your
will. Your will is the part of you
that makes your decisions. Either you will or you won’t, or
you do or you don’t. It is that
cut and dried. The difficulty
is once you make that decision; your emotions will kick
in and say, ‘Time out, I really
don’t want to do this.’”
If you can let go and forgive, you will experience great
freedom. You might say, “He
doesn’t deserve forgiveness.
He hasn’t ask for it, and he
doesn’t want it. Why should
I forgive him?” But hopefully,
you will realize that it’s not for
him. It’s for you!
“But with [God] there is forgiveness” (Psalm 130:4).

Announcements for Sunday, November 14, 2010, included a reminder to participate in the “Hanging of the
Greens” (church decorating
for Advent) and quarterly TLC
day to be held Saturday, November 27, at 9:00 a.m. Parishioners were also notified of some upcoming Lay
Speaker and church officer
seminar opportunities sponsored by the Corpus Christi
District of the Southwest Texas Conference of the UMC.
Ann Esse was the organist for
this week’s service with Brannan Woelfel serving as acolyte
and worship assistant.
The sermon text for Sunday
was Luke 21:5-19, a passage
in which Jesus is preparing his
disciples for the time when he
will no longer be with them
in the flesh. His stark predictions warn of the fall of the
temple and Jerusalem and a
time of judgment yet to come
when all the world will undergo turmoil as this age passes
and a new order, God’s kingdom, is established. Pastor
Donna encouraged listeners
to heed Jesus’ words and remain situationally aware during times of turmoil, both in
our individual lives and when
troubles assail the world.
Faithfully enduring difficulties through these times provides a witness to others –
family, friends and even our
enemies. She indicated there
are three actions we can take
during trying times: 1) open
our eyes and take in what is
happening around us (don’t
hide from the world or obsess
about circumstances), 2) pray
for the grace and strength to
endure these situations well,
and 3) keep our hearts focused on Jesus. When we do
these things we are assured,
“not a hair of your head will
perish. By your endurance
you will gain your souls.”
(Luke 21:18-19)
The service was followed
by a time of fellowship and an
opportunity to pray over and
sign a get well card for Mary
Miller and a sympathy card
for Debbie Chapman on the
death of her mother, Mickey
Crenshaw.

Description
Honey mesquite is a small
to medium-height tree or
shrub. It is thorny and has
either one stem or branches near the ground. A member of the Legume family, it is
the most common species of
mesquite in Texas.
The leaves of honey mesquite are deciduous and located alternately along the
stems. The fruits are loosely
clustered pods (beans) reaching 8 to 10 inches long. They
may be abnormally abundant
in drought years.
The beans can provide fair
forage for livestock and wildlife but can be toxic to livestock if consumed as a high
percentage of the diet.
Habitat
Generally found throughout Texas, honey mesquite is
common on dry ranges across
the state. It is found from California to Kansas, Texas and
Mexico
Control
Can be controlled either mechanically by bulldozing or grubbing. Controlled chemically by variety
of chemicals, most commonly by Remedy and Diesel fuel mixture on an individual plant basis at 2 quarts
of Remedy herbicide and 2
quarts of diesel per 100 gallons of water. In a broadcast
application plants must be at
least 4 feet in height and use
½ pint Remedy plus 2/3 pint
Reclaim with a 20% diesel fuel
oil mixture. Treat when leaves
are mature and have a uniform dark green color. Avoid
spraying new lime-green foliage. Application period begins when soil temperatures
at a depth of 12 inches reaches 75 degrees and continues
for 60 days after. Avoid spraying when bean pods are elongating.
*Always read and follow all
herbicide label recommendations.

AgriLife Extension to offer estate
planning program in Kenedy
KENEDY – Objective, unbiased financial and estate
planning advice, especially for the newly wealthy or
those whose wealth has increased significantly over a
short time, is vital to making
educated decisions on what
to do with that wealth, said
Texas AgriLife Extension Service experts.
To help people understand
the tax, legal, asset protection and other implications
of sudden wealth, AgriLife Extension will sponsor an estate
and financial planning seminar on Dec. 2 at the Kenedy
City Hall Auditorium, 303 W.
Main St. in Kenedy.
The “Oil and Gas Boom!
Estate Planning Seminar: 6
Things You & Your Family
Need to Know” will take place
from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., with registration from 8-8:30 a.m.
Seminar co-sponsors include State Farm Insurance,
the Karnes County National Bank and Connie S. SmartCPA, Ameriprise Financial
and the law firm of Duncan,
Bressler & Liu.
The cost for the seminar is
$10, and lunch is included.
“We wanted to present this
seminar before the end of the
year so attendees might get
some ideas they can implement this year relating to investing and tax planning,”
said Nancy Granovsky, AgriLife Extension specialist in
family economics in College
Station, a seminar presenter.
“We chose Karnes County to
start with as many people in
that county and nearby counties have benefited financially
by the oil and gas boom.”
Granovsky, a certified financial professional, will
speak on how to select the
right individual to help with
wealth management needs
and how to foster a relationship with that person.
“We will concentrate on
how to find and work with
qualified financial advisers,
and how these financial professionals can help develop
a plan to meet an individual’s financial and life goals,”
she said. “People who experience sudden wealth often begin receiving lots of attention
from individuals interested in
soliciting their business. They
need to choose financial advisers who will serve their interests and show fiduciary responsibility.”
Granovsky
said
while
many people dream of finding themselves in a position
of being wealthy, they often don’t realize that sudden
or greatly increased wealth
comes with its own set of personal and practical issues,
challenges and concerns.
Coordinators said the seminar will include information on adapting to sudden
wealth, financial institutions
and asset protection, investment options, tax implications, choosing a financial
professional and estate planning.
“An often overlooked aspect of wealth management
is how the sudden acquisition
of wealth may affect an individual, family or community,” said Dr. Joyce Cavanagh,
AgriLife Extension specialist, family economics, whose
presentation will focus on
managing life while managing money.
People who are not used to
having significant assets need
to understand the impact that
this may have on them and
those around them, Cavanagh said.
Reports related to oil and
natural gas production from
the Eagle Ford Shale zone,
which includes Karnes and
several other counties, indicate there will be additional activity for years to come,
seminar developers noted.
“This estate planning seminar will be focused on individuals affected by the
oil and gas boom in this region, but it won’t be limited
to them,” said Meredith Carter, AgriLife Extension family
and consumer science agent
for Karnes County. “The program is open to the public, so
others who need information
on estate planning or wealth
management can attend.”
Carter noted, however, that
seating capacity is limited
and they can only accommodate the first 200 people who
pre-register.
“It’s a great opportunity to
get objective information and
advice from financial professionals and others at a nominal cost,” she said.
Attendees are asked to preregister by Nov. 30. Registration can be completed online
by going to https://agrilifevents.tamu.edu/index.cfm,
entering the keyword “estate”
and completing the electronic form.
Attendees also can preregister through the AgriLife Extension office in Karnes
County at 830-780-3906.
Checks should be made payable to: Karnes County Workshops.
