Superintendent of Schools J.C. Lusk announces that plans are currently underway
by Valentine ISD for the implementation of
Chapter 75 of the Texas Education Code.
Chapter 75 began as House Bill 246, passed
by the Sixty-Seventh Legislature in 1981,
which repealed all existing laws requiring
courses to be taught and mandated the
curriculum" for all students. The law
established twelve curriculum areas which
constitute a well-balanced curriculum and
required minimum* essential elements be
developed for each of the curriculum areas.
Each school district is required to offer a
well-balanced curriculum which includes
English language arts, other languages (to
the extent possible), mathmematics, science,
health, physical education, fine arts (including art, music, and theater arts), social
studies, economics (with an emphasis on the
free enterprise system and its benefits),
business education, vocational education,
and Texas and U.S. history as individual
subjects and in reading courses. Tne bill further requires the instruction of certain aspects of computer science at the secondary level.
There are essential elements which have
been established as a minimum for instruction at each level from kindergarten through
grade twelve. While school districts may add
to the essential elements at their discretion,
the law states that t h e y , " . . . shall not delete
or omit instruction in the essential elements
required by the State Board of Education.**
School districts are allowed to modify the
essential elements to meet the needs of
special populations including students involved in bilingual education and other

With Mayor Pro Tem Edmundo Nieto presiding, Presidio City
Council members Friday night

Aside from a controversial

Astros take winning streak to state
Fresh off their 13-0 victory
over the Monahans Tigers in the
Little League district championship title game, last week in Marfa, the Presidio Astros charged
onward Tuesday to win their first
two state tournament challenges
Astro regulars and pick-up
players Rene Rivera of the Marfa
Medical Big Shots, plus Bobby
Martinez and Robert Davis from
St. Mary's Irish, packed up their
bats and balls and headed to
Killeen on Monday morning for
freshman tight base competition
in the state tournament.
They left armed with a perfect
season mark of 12-0 in league
play and 4-0 in district play.
They proceeded to rout the
White House Rangers 26-4 in the
first game Tuesday morning, and
followed that up by outclassing
the Astros from Riesel in central
Texas in the night game, 16-3.
Presidio's Astros went on to
face a team from Temple this
Wednesday evening. Twelve
teams, the best of each district,
are competing for the state title, in
the 9 to 12 age group.
In Tuesday's first Astro victory
Presidio pitchers Rivera and
David Carrasco, who allowed
only four hits in the last four in-
nings of play, combined for the
impressive win. Rivera meanwhile struck out five of the six
players he faced and was to be
spared for Wednesday's contest
Offensively, Jose Armendariz
led the Astros at the plate by
going 5 for 6, followed by Alfonso
Carrasco and D. Carrasco with a
3 for 6 game.
In the Astros' victory over
their namesakes from Riesel,
Alfonso Renteria struck out 11 in
going the distance while his
teammates did more than enough
damage at the plate. Armendariz
again carried a heavy stick to the
plate, having a perfect 2-2 night,
followed by Martinez at 3-4;
Davis at 2-3; and Renteria with
two hits on four trips to the plate.
Hard-throwing Rivera was
scheduled to pitch when the
Astros faced Temple at 6:30 p.m.
In the 13-0 district title win
over the Tigers here Aug. 1, the
Astros' Rivera fanned 15 for the
victory and assured his comrades
the trip to Killeen.
Armendariz, small in frame,
once again powered his teammates offensively by belting two
solo home runs and a secondinning single. Renteria and D.
Carrasco followed with three extra base hits while Martinez contributed two hits and Rivera*
Davis and Rene Carrasco each
Brad Wells suffered the loss
for the visitors, with Tiger teammates Steve Ward and Roger
Balderaz gathering in one hit
apiece for the only hits allowed
The Astros, who have won
Marfa League play for the past
three years, have been led all
three years by Head Coach Tony
Sanchez and Sponsor-Assistant
Coach Daniel DeAnda, with Arturo Brito keeping score,
DeAnda said Friday in
Presidio, "We're going to try real
hard, that's all. I think we're
He praised his two star pitchers, both of whom are 12 and
in their last league season. Renteria, however, who has played
since he was 9 and pitched a
couple of no-hitters for the
Astros, may be succeeded by his
7-year-old brother Ricky, whom
DeAnda says is "ready" and has
only to turn 9.
Of pick-up pitcher Rivera,
DeAnda commented, "Guys say,
'How did you beat Rivera?' We
did, we beat him. Now for us,
he's done beautiful." Rivera was
the only pitcher to give the Astros
a hard time all year, DeAnda added.
About $1,400 has been collected from concession stand sales,
and as of Friday afternoon an
additional $980 from area merchants and other supporters, for
the Astros' costly trip to state.
Last year, when the Astros lost
their first two games at state, the
tab still came to about $1,800 for
three days and two nights,

times a day to remove excess oil

— Between washings, use
alcohol wipes of the same purpose.
— Shampoo the hair twice a
week; again to remove excess oil.

positive effect. Exposures at all
times should be timed very

medication in gel form that contains benzoyl peroxide. This

Seven varieties of grass
by Bob Waddell
In June, seven varieties of
grasses and forbs were seeded on
a 60-acre demonstration plot at
Hayes Mitchell's Alamito Ranch
south of Marfa.
The seed was furnished by the
SCS Plant Materials Center
located at Knox City, Texas, with
the exception ot Lehmann and
Weeping Lbvegrass, which were
furnished by Mitchell.
Also, six of the latest strains of
buffelgrass were seeded in
separate plots. This material was
furnished by Tommie Thompson
of the Agricultural Research Service at College Station.

Acne happens from within the
body, not without. Setting the
process in motion is the male
hormone androgen, which is
produced by both males and
females during puberty. Males
produce androgen in greater
amounts, the result being acne in
males is generally more serious
than in females.

Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples
and other skin lesions occur when

Letters to the editor
Dtar Mr. Ryan:
A few lines to let you know
how much I enjoy your paper,
each week I look forward to
receiving and reading it!
I once published a weekly
paper in the Rio Grande Valley,
while I was a school principal in
the Valley — I found it very interesting work\
You have a good paper. Oftentimes we have stayed in Marfa
during our vacation time either
going or coming from the
beautiful Big Bend (National)
I enjoy all of your articles and
also the glint and glitter of movie
making. I think that part of
Texas is scenic and beautiful. I
wish we could have seen the Mar-
fa Lights. I own a little acreage
on Highway 67 toward Presidio.
Let me know when my subscription runs out. I don't want
to miss any issues.
From the paper, you all have
received some rain and not very
much hot weather. We are in the
middle of a drouth — very little
rain, lots of 96-degree weather,
lots of humidity)
Thanks for keeping me posted
on God's country!
JoeC. Moore, Ph.D.
P.S. — I get your paper from
Marfa in 5-7 days. No fault of
you, but Uncle Sam's mail. I'm
saving each issue.

This might be a good time to
think again about an lifter*
national Big Bend Park extending
across the Rio Grande into the
Sierra del Carmen and environs.
Such a park would create many
jobs in Northern Mexico and
perhaps divert some of the northward trek of Mexicans seeking
employment north of the river.
Additional income from increased tourism is the area would
help the economy on both sides
of the border.
Although the government of
Mexico rejected the idea back in
the I930*s, President de La
Madrid might now be receptive to
such an idea.
Someone in the Marfa area
might want to take this idea and
run with it. It's an idea whose
time has come.
To the Editor:
Individuals from minority and
disadvantaged groups have been
pushed into higher education by
schoolmen following egalitarian
and sentimental propaganda.
The universities have reduced
standards and inflated grades to
retain poorly qualified students.
The schools of education have
put more emphasis on attendance
than on performance and they
have introduced additional courses in trifling subjects. The
education departments of the universities have engaged in empire
building by retaining poor
students, adding non-essential
courses and reducing the number
of required courses in English,
mathematics and science.
As a result many holders of
education degrees lack the basic
skills of reading, writing, arithmetic and technology which the
citizens and the teachers of today

published, the departments of

A new service designed to give customers the opportunity to reduce the
cost of long distance in Texas has been filed with the state PUC by AT&T
Communications of the Southwest, Inc.
"Reach Out* Texas" is an optional calling plan which will provide additional discounts on long distance rates for Texas customers who frequently
place calls in the evening, weekend, and night time calling periods.
The new "Reach Out* Texas" plan for the first time extends the benefits
of competition to many Texas consumers who previously have not had any
discounted long distance service available to them.
AT&T Communications customers who choose this new optional service
will pay a monthly charge of $14 which entitles them to one hour of intrastate
"Direct Dialed" (1 + ) calling during the weekend and night rate period.
An additional customer savings for those participating in the plan will be
that any Direct Dialed calls placed during the weekend and night rate
period that exceeds the one hour period will be charged at an hourly rate of
$12, or $ .20 per minute.
Customers selecting this option also receive an additional 15 percent
discount for intrastate Direct Dialed calls during the evening discount rate
period for a total savings of approximately 38 percent.
A one-time charge of $6 is billed when a customer orders the "Reach
Out* Texas'1 plan. The $8 is collected by AT&T Communications and paid to
the local telephone company to establish the service. This charge will be
waived during the first BO days that the offering is available.
AT&T Communications is proud to offer this optional service for its
Texas long distance customers and will in the future continue to introduce
cost cutting programs to help Texans reduce their long distance bills.
A complete copy of the "Reach Out® Texas" tariff and rate schedule is on
file with the Texas Public Utility Commission at Austin, Texas.
AT&T Communications estimates that the revenue impact of this new service would be significantly less than 2.5 percent of annual gross revenues.
Persons who wish to intervene or otherwise participate in these proceedings should notify the Commission as soon as possible. A request to
intervene or participate or for further information should be mailed to the
Public Utility Commission of Texas, 7800 Shoal Creek Boulevard, Suite
400N, Austin, Texas 7B757. Further information also may be obtained by
calling the Public Utility Commission Consumer Affairs Division at (512)
4SB0223 or (512) 4564227, or (512) 4554)221, teletypewriter for the deaf.
