Oil spill estimated

By BRANDON EVANS

Workers from several environmental

cleanup companies

worked around the

clock last weekend in an effort

to prevent five barrels

of oil-and-gas mixture from

spreading further into Lake

Bridgeport.

By Monday, most of the

cleanup was complete, according

to officials.

“The surface of the water

was green when we first got

here,” said Justin Hicks, an

The water level at Lake

Bridgeport showed a slight

decrease Tuesday. As of press

time, it was still closed and

at 837.72, which is 1.72 feet

above conservation level.

Lake Superintendent Richard

Ellis said in-flow had decreased

from a high of 7,840

cubic feet per second to 2,600

cfs Tuesday. He said that almost

5,000 cfs was still being

released.

“If we don’t get rain, we’ll

be in good shape,” he said.

“I’ll probably open the lake

Thursday evening.”

The lake has been closed

since Friday. Check Update

kid

At the age of 15,

Dakota Burns

has found his voice.


Beneath a mop of shaggy red hair, a steady

voice boomed deeper than an injection well,

belying the singer’s young age.

Dressed in flannel shirt and blue jeans, Dakota

Burns, 15, belted out song after song in a

barbecue restaurant full of fans. He strummed

his acoustic guitar in perfect time. It’s hard

to understand how someone his age sounds so

soulful.

He finished one of his favorite songs, “Every

Mile a Memory” by Dierks Bentley. A round of

applause followed — a sound he lives for.

Burns, a freshman at Decatur High School,

picked up a guitar at the age of nine, and he

never put it down.

“Once you find a guitar you like, you just

know it feels right,” he said. “You lose yourself

in the music.”

He got his first guitar for $100 from 2-K Pawn in Decatur.

“It’s about as basic as it gets,” Burns said. “I first started playing

with kids around the neighborhood. You kind

wants to be cool so they all get a guitar, but I

only have a couple friends from when I first

started playing that actually kept with it.

“I had about 10 lessons, nothing formal, just

hanging out with some people. It came pretty

naturally. I kept playing because I kept getting

better. People started noticing that I was

good, and I wanted that.”

Burns performed for the first time in front

of people at a talent show in the fourth grade.

He performed a medley of five classic rock-nroll

songs.

Dakota Burns “I was really nervous,” he said. “It was in

front of 400 other kids. From then on everybody

at school knows I’m the guitar kid.”

He’s moved on from the talent show. This year he started perform-

guardrail south of the Farm Road 3433 overpass

at about 9:15 a.m. His passenger truck flipped

several times before it landed on its roof.

The roof of the cab was crushed, and the dashboard

was pushed toward the front seats.

Police said that Pierce was able to crawl out

of the truck after other motorists cut the seat

belt.

“The truck was so mangled the seating wasn’t

in its normal position,” said officer T. Pennington.

Pennington said that witnesses reported

Pierce’s truck weaving before he left the road

and collided with the guardrail. Pennington

said the cause of the accident may have been

driver fatigue.

Northbound U.S. 81/287 was closed while

crews worked the scene.

most of it up.”

Wading in the waters of

Lake Bridgeport behind a

containment boom, Hicks

and dozens of others continued

to scoop out mountains

of organic debris tainted

with oily residue. They

dumped it into plastic bags.

The bags filled several large

trash trailers. The polyester

and nylon boom blocked any

more oil from spreading to

the rest of the lake.

Square pads floated atop

the water, soaking oil remnants

from the surface.

Kevin Hill, an employee

with Eagle Environmental,

had already spent 30 hours

wading beneath the willows.

A blue-green oil sheen clung

to his plastic gloves.

“I’m just skimming over

the surface,” he said, as he

continued to methodically

net the water.

“As of Monday, about

97 percent of the spill is

cleaned up,” said Ramona

Nye, a spokesperson with

the Texas Railroad Commission

(RRC). “The commission

continues to have personnel

on site overseeing the clean

up.”

On Friday afternoon, a

pipeline owned by Jay Management,

an oil and gas company

based in Houston, ruptured

and began leaking into

Jasper Creek, which flows

directly into Lake Bridgeport

beneath Shady Oaks

Drive. It proceeded to leak

approximately 200 gallons

of an oil and gas mixture.

“The source of the flow

was determined to be a 2-

inch leaking plastic flowline,”

Nye said. “It’s a line

that moves casinghead gas

from an oil well to a common

storage area.”

SURFACE CLEANERS — Teams of cleaning crews worked around the clock last weekend at the mouth of Jasper Creek in

Lake Bridgeport in an effort to contain a five barrel oil spill. From left, Felix Salazar, Justin Hicks and Rusty Coleman, all

employees with Swan Oil Field Services, scoop oil-covered debris from behind a 1,000-foot long containment boom.

gas is also released. This

separated gas is called casinghead

gas.

“All the different energy

companies possibly involved

showed up,” said Chris

Dowdy, a game warden with

Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Dowdy was one of the first

on scene when the leak was

discovered near a bridge on

County Road 1700.

“It took a while, but the

railroad commission located

the leak and got it stopped,”

he said

Although the cause of the

busted pipe is under investigation,

Dowdy suspects high

water and debris caused the

flowline to rupture.

The RRC ordered Jay Management

to begin a clean up.

They brought in Eagle Environmental

and other companies

to begin the process,

which started Saturday.

Clean-up crews laid down

more than 1,000 feet of containment

booms around the

mouth of Jasper Creek to

capture the oil. They also

laid out hundreds of “absorbent

diapers” to soak up the

residue from the lake’s surface.

Lloyd Deuel, a scientist

with Whole Earth Environmental,

was on hand to provide

advice and assistance

in the clean up.

“Eagle Environmental got

here on Saturday,” Deuel

said. “They set up lights

and worked throughout the

night and all day Sunday.

They should be finished by

Tuesday.”

He said the conditions

have helped. He said most

of the oil stayed in the channel.

He expects most of the

oil that made it into the rest

of the lake to evaporate off

the surface.

“This is never what we

want to see, but the cleanup

has been a best-case

scenario,” Dowdy said. “I

haven’t seen any environmental

damage so far. No

fish floating in the water,

no oily substance on birds.

Our department is keeping

an eye on what is going on.

Hopefully no wildlife will be

impacted.”

Nye said the investigation

is ongoing, and so far the

RRC has levied no fines or

penalties against Jay Management.

The spill carries a

maximum penalty of $10,000

per day per incident.

But Nye said if a company

fully complies with the

clean-up the chance of fines

and punishment lessens.

She said Jay Management

has been cooperative thus

far.

OPINION

OUR VIEWS

Rolling boulders into political infinity

By BRANDON EVANS

In a subterranean underworld

of eternity, a lone figure daily

ngages in a frustrating and

ruitless ceremony.

Sisyphus stares up a steep,

aunting hill. A massive boulder

tands before him. His task is

o roll the rock to the top. Howver,

after a full day of toil, the

oulder always rolls back to the

ill’s base

For various transgressions and

eceits against the gods, the anient

Greek king Sisyphus was

ondemned by Death to engage

n a task that never allows him

o reap reward or victory. Over

nd over Sisyphus undergoes the

ame job in the same manner,

oping to see different results,

ut it always ends with the bouler

rolling back down the hill.

Despite his goal never beng

realized, he’s compelled to

ontinue rolling the boulder up

he hill every day. The effect is

addening, but it’s his everlastng

punishment.

In the American landscape, in

the field of political grassroots

and far removed from the mythological

world of Hades,

millions of us engage in

our own Sisyphean challenge.

We tune into likeminded

radio personalities

and television commentaries.

We undergo

daily frustration at the

fat felines of Wall Street

and the seedy lobbyists

residing inside the

D.C. Beltway. Projected

national deficits and proposed

federal policies enrage us every

day.

I can’t tell you how many

times I’ve stormed around in

circles like a toy soldier without

a mission, mumbling about

corrupt corporations and scandal-ridden

politicians. Like a

perpetual debbie downer, I’ve

pestered friends and co-workers

with random rants about injustices

abroad.

But what does all this concern,

all my theoretical pushing and

shoving uphill against boulders

unseen, accomplish?

In the recent local

election, Newark city

councilman Jerry Davidson

lost his bid for

re-election to newcomer

Doug Anderson. He told

this reporter he’d like to

see more activity from

the community.

“I would encourage

EVANS

more people to get involved,”

Davidson said.

“What happens at the

local level is more likely to affect

you than decisions made at the

state and federal level. I hope

more people get involved.”

David Wilson ran for mayor

of Rhome. He came up short in

votes to Evelyn Obenour. But

he will finish out the rest of his

term as a councilman. He’ll keep

working to make a palpable

difference at the local level. He

echoed Davidson’s concern, and

said he was disappointed that

only 10 percent or less of registered

voters turned out to vote.

But when it comes to the presidential

elections, voters come out

in droves, even though our individual

votes are next to pointless.

During the 2008 election,

I lived in the tiny New England

state of Connecticut. Blue to the

core, it was a foregone conclusion

that all the state’s electoral

votes would go to the Democratic

candidate. Yet the voters came

out in droves not seen in local

elections.

During the 2004 presidential

election, I lived in Texas, and

during the 2000 election, I lived

in Alabama. Both states bleed

red to the bone marrow. It didn’t

take Miss Cleo to predict where

all the electoral votes would go.

Yet the turnout trumped all local

elections I’ve seen by far.

Why do we obsess so about

issues mostly beyond our control

and ignore events in our backyard?

Why do we worry so much

about political freedom in Tibet

or calling our president names

when we can affect real change

around us? I’m as guilty of it as

much as the next person. While

it’s important to keep up with

politics and social issues in the

national and global spheres, we

need to focus more on our efforts

at home.

I’ve gained a real admiration

for people who run for school

board, city council and mayor

positions. They sacrifice a great

deal to improve the place around

them. I also have great respect

for people like local environmentalist

Sharon Wilson from Greenwood.

She’s invested years of her

life into making Wise County a

cleaner and safer place.

The same goes for volunteers

at area food banks and those

raising funds for crisis centers

and community improvement

projects and countless other endeavors.

They’ve learned to leave

the boulder and hill to Sisyphus,

and instead cultivate the fertile

plain into a fruitful future.

Well the dust has settled somewhat on the westside

and the election is over and the so called “patch

and go” project has begun and of course the continuous

gravel drops. I would like to thank the few

who responded to the previous letters including the

chamber of commerce. I have to agree with them, our

parks are something to be proud of – much nicer now

than when I was a kid.

Although there are other nice new additions such

as a state-of-the-art police department and city hall,

plus all the street signs that support the Bridgeport

Bulls and the numerous well paved streets and let’s

not forget the Halsell Street project. What do all

these places have in common? They are located on

the east side of Bridgeport.

I would like to request to see the documents on the

purchase and restoration of the “stage coach” project.

That would be very interesting. I wonder why the

city council did not accept my challenge to drive the

streets of westside, the challenge still stands. Just let

us know.

Congratulations, Keith McComis, on winning the

mayor’s seat. I look forward to seeing your campaign

promises fulfilled. Best of luck to you. We are behind

you all the way.

Let’s have some accountability, responsibility and

true service for the taxpayers and keep the funding

fair for all of the city of Bridgeport. Where are the

solutions to the issues?

I don’t think I’m the only one who feels this way

and even people who live on the east side drive these

streets, so really it’s not just outsiders that could benefit

from real street repairs. If we would all stand together

and do a public demonstration and contact the

news media and get some outside support, we hopefully

would get the results needed to get on track.

Thank you for allowing me to voice my thoughts and

opinion on these issues.

Once again, we’re paying the

price of years of deregulatory, laissez-faire

ideology pushed down our

throats by corporate lobbyists

and whorish politicians.

Suddenly, we’re relearning

the painful lesson that

when technological solutions

combine with corporate

promises, we often get

a toxic mix.

This lesson is literally

oozing over us in the form

of the Gulf of Mexico’s

disastrous oil slick, brought

to us by the deepwell drilling

schemes of Big Oil profiteers.

This particular well, belonging to

BP, has been drilled beneath miledeep

water, and it plunges some

four miles into the Gulf floor – presenting

beaucoup possibilities for

technological glitches.

BP and other oil giants, however,

assured regulatory authorities and

the general public that they were

experts – so not to worry. There’s a

one-in-a-million chance of

anything going wrong, they

claimed, promising that if

anything did happen, they

had the technology in place

to handle it. Perfectly safe,

they said; trust us. Indeed,

BP had installed a steelframed

stack of valves,

rams, tanks and tubes

called a blow-out-preventer

(BOP) at the base of the

well to seal it instantly if

things went badly. Things did, and

it didn’t.

The BOP didn’t work and …

well, you know the awful price

that thousands of people and the

whole Gulf ecology are paying for

BP’s ignorance and arrogance. Now,

the corporation’s top honchos have

changed tunes entirely, pleading

that the technology is extremely

difficult and dicey to deal with, so

don’t expect a quick fix to stop the

catastrophic gusher. “This is like

doing open-heart surgery at 5,000

feet in the dark,” exclaimed BP’s

chairman.

Once again, we’re paying the

price of years of deregulatory, laissez-faire

ideology pushed down our

throats by corporate lobbyists and

whorish politicians. “Get the government

off our backs,” demanded

Big Oil – and now we’ve got their

crude slick all over us.

the “guitar kid” ...

GUITAR

HERO

— Dakota

Burns has

dreams of

becoming

well

recognized

in the world

of Texas

country

music. He

already has

skills on the

strings and

a strong

voice. He’s

waiting

for life’s

experiences

to give him

the content.

Continued from page 1A

ing paid shows at area bars and restaurants,

drawing decent crowds and replacing his allowance

with paychecks.

Throughout the years, Dakota has continued

to work on his technique and improve on the

guitar. His vocals have also gotten better. Performing

in concert choir at school has helped.

“We sing classical, but it’s taught me how to

enunciate my words.”

Along the way Dakota has continued to tap

into his own life as an inspiration behind his

music. He started out focused on metal bands

like AC/DC and Metallica, but he’s since embraced

his country roots. He’s grown up between

Decatur and Paradise, near the banks of

the West Fork of the Trinity River.

“The stuff that I sing is mostly Texas country,”

he said. “I think people like listening to

music that they can relate to. I have nothing to

relate to rap music because I don’t know what

that’s like. But country music is about going

hunting and fishing and driving in trucks.

That’s what I like to do.”

But he continues to seek his own message,

his unique voice. He plays covers, mimicking

and learning from others before him.

“When I start writing my own songs, and it

might not be very soon ‘cause I haven’t lived

very long, it’ll be about life experiences. I think

that’s what makes a good songwriter.”

His dream follows the format of countless aspiring

musicians. He wants to get noticed and

eventually have his own record deal.

Dakota’s next show is 7 p.m. Thursday, May

20, at Frilly’s in Decatur.

WISE COUNTY

Officers cage Crow after flight from custody

WISE COUNTY MESSENGER, Decatur, Texas, Thursday, May 20, 2010

You’ve got it...

Somebody wants it.

7A

By KRISTEN TRIBE

An Alvord woman is spending this

week in the Wise County Jail after

spending the previous seven days on

the run.

Tami Kay Crow, 44, managed

to delay her incarceration

by a week after escaping

from sheriff’s deputies May

8 when she was arrested for

possession of a controlled

substance at Barclay’s Salvage

near Alvord.

Deputies Josh McAlmon,

Richard Burdick and Robert

Payne responded about 9:30

a.m. to a reckless shooting

call. While searching for the shooter,

they arrested Crow for possession of

narcotics.

She was placed in handcuffs and

put in the patrol vehicle, but while officers

were searching the house for a

shooter or other persons, she escaped.

Sheriff David Walker said although

it is not clear how she escaped, he

thinks someone helped her

because the car doors cannot

be opened from the inside,

and she was in handcuffs.

During interviews with investigators

Monday, Crow did

not say who helped her, but

she did tell them where to

find the handcuffs.

Officers recovered them

Monday afternoon at the salvage

yard. The cuffs had been

CROW

cut from her wrists.

Crow was arrested about 11 p.m.

Saturday near Justin in Denton

County.

In addition to the original drug

ALVORD

charges, she is now charged with escape

while arrested/confined. She is

also facing probation violations from

Hopkins County on drugs, theft and

burglary charges.

Bond was set at $30,000 for the escape

charges, but there is no bond for

the probation violations.

It took most of last week to verify

her identity, and at least two women

were brought in before the suspect

was correctly identified. Officers with

Wise and Denton County sheriff’s departments

made the arrest.

Walker said she’s “been somewhat

cooperative,” and he thinks they’ll

take the case to the district attorney

next week.

School calendar for 2010-2011 approved

y MANDY BOURGEOIS

The Alvord School Board

pproved the 2010-2011

alendar at Monday’s meetng.

The calendar was one of

our proposed to staff and

eceived the most staff

votes. The calendar is

modeled after the current

year’s, with the exception

of having 175 instructional

days instead of 177. The

calendar adds two staff development

days.

The school year will begin

Aug. 23 and end May

26. Students will have Nov.

22-26 off, and winter break

will be Dec. 20 through Jan.

3. Spring break is March

14-18.

The first semester will

end on Dec. 17.

“It’s what our folks prefer,

so we try to make it work,”

said Superintendent Bill

Branum.

In other business, the

board reorganized, reelecting

Kevin Wood as

president. John Schedcik

was elected vice-president,

and Jeannette Ward was

re-elected secretary. New

member Larry Nivens was

elected assistant secretary.

The board also discussed

the district’s interlocal

agreement with Wise

County. Branum explained

that the agreement would

allow the county to assist

with maintenance projects,

including road work, and

the development of a possible

practice field for the

marching band.

The board is expected to

discuss projects at later

meetings.

Branum also presented a

comparison of teacher salaries

to the board. Branum

said that as the board gets

further into the budget process,

he hopes to provide

for a teachers’ raise for the

next school year.

“We have a very experienced

teaching staff in

terms of comparing ourselves

with other districts.

Our teachers have a lot of

in-district experience, and

they have done a tremendous

job in the classroom,”

he said. “We want to do

anything we can to reward

that.

“When we’re comfortable

enough with our budget,

one of our top priorities

is to try to increase our

teacher salaries as much

as we are able to do. (Monday)

was just a beginning

discussion and giving them

some points of reference. A

little bit later on we’ll be

able to make some definitive

recommendations.

“We certainly are understanding

that our teachers

are our most precious commodity

— we want to do all

we can to make sure we remain

competitive.”

WISE COUNTY

River got a little wider after water’s release

By PHIL MAJOR

Directors of the Wise County Water Control

and Improvement District learned earlier

this month that bank erosion along the

Trinity River was high after water let out of

Lake Bridgeport was shut off.

Director Mike Overton said 15 to 20 feet

of bank caved into the river in some areas

near Paradise.

Recent rains raised the level of the lake

above the conservation level of 836 feet,

leading the gates to be opened to let water

downstream. The lake eventually crested at

838 feet before dropping back to conservation

level.

The water release flooded areas downstream.

Director James McGilvray speculated

that the initial release undercut the

banks, and then when the water subsided,

the banks caved in.

Directors agreed to discuss the situation

with the Tarrant Regional Water District

and the U.S. Corps of Engineers to see if future

erosion can be avoided or lessened.

Directors agreed to leave the property tax

rate, salaries and mileage reimbursement

at last year’s levels. The tax rate is one cent

per $100 valuation.

Officers were also left as is, with Lou Vee

Bridges to continue as chairman.

NORTHWEST

PARADISE

Mundy elected school board president

By MANDY BOURGEOIS

The Paradise school board re-elected

Homer Mundy as president at Monday

night’s meeting, and elected Doug Bryant

to vice president and Kevin Howerton

to secretary.

Bryant most recently served as secretary,

and former vice president Dike

Read did not run for re-election.

New board members Scott Eisen and

Lonnie Holder joined the board for the

first regular meeting.

The board discussed the district’s

ongoing construction projects. The district

has completed 90 percent of the

access systems to be at each campus,

and cameras will be installed after

the school year ends. The frame is up

at the daycare center and Superintendent

Monty Chapman said the maintenance

department is going to help the

ag students complete the greenhouse.

Chapman said there is no firm date for

the construction of the press box and

installation of bleachers at the football

field, but Chapman said the projects

would be finished before next school

year.

In other business, the board voted

not to change school breakfast and

lunch prices.

Currently, breakfast is $1.50 for students

and $2 for adults. Lunches are

$2 for pre-k through third grade; $2.50

for fourth through eighth grade; $3 for

ninth through 12th grade; and $3.50

for adults. Adult salad bar is $2.50.

At the end of the 2008-2009 school

year, the district received $375,724.15

in revenues, but had expenditures of

$376,308.47 in food service.

At the end of this school year,

the school will have revenues of

$301,293.68, and expenditures of

$424,455.62.

Mundy asked if there was a way to

fix the deficit. Chapman explained

that the deficit is due to the amount of

personnel in food service — 12 employees

at the three cafeterias. However,

Chapman said that the district could

reclassify the job title of food service

employees who also clean the cafeteria

and kitchens, moving their salaries to

a different fund.

In other business, the board approved

waivers for bad weather days

and low-attendance days. A school can

apply for low-attendance waivers if the

low-attendance days reflect a 10-percent

difference in the attendance from

the same day of the previous school

year.

Messenger photo by Joe Duty

ontinued from page 4A

a fellow board member.

Ruby’s crime was she was a

“newby” and had an opinion

different from the attacking

member. Ruby absorbed the

words. The next meeting,

Ruby read a very measured

statement in reply to the

offending member and to

her fellow board members.

I knew then, we didn’t just

have a woman on the board,

we had a Lady.

It is so easy to be “for

the kids” but quite difficult

to put that into concrete

action. Ruby did so. Ruby

has an intense belief that

a child who doesn’t read

well is a handicapped child.

Ruby led the board to create

and fund an after school

tutorial program K-12, with

bus service, not an add on

to the teacher’s already

long day unless that teacher

wanted the extra pay.

It was tied to grade level

readiness, not TAKS. It was

to be operational the first

ay of school until the last

ay of school.

Assuming this tutorial

program isn’t cut, there

will be DISD kids brought

to grade level and given

a chance to eventually

experience a school year not

attempting to make up last

year and learn this year’s

work as well. That’s being

“for the kids.”

I would like to thank all

and supported my election

campaign for city council.

Whether it was soliciting

votes, putting out yard

your help was important,

and I appreciate it. The biggest

thanks goes to my family

for all their hard work.

YOUR VIEWS

We have some big challenges

have some great townspeople

to face them with.

Matt Van Hoose

Bridgeport

Letter is

Cheers for Mr. Manshadow

Waylett and his ability

to rebut inferior logic and

plain old illogic as is evidenced

by his latest letter

against the putrid raving

and ranting of the most

obnoxious left wing regular

in your paper’s viewpoint

section.

As native Americans,

his people met the boats

of the first immigrants.

This should qualify him to

attend, organize and speak

at a patriotic gathering and

label it a tea party. Also, it

should permit him to define

his intentions without some

itinerant soothsayer attempting

to mislabel his

true intentions.

I nominate his latest

“I can’t smile too much more,” Rabalais

said, gripping her bronze medal.

“I’ve been smiling so much. It feels so

good.”

Rabalais claimed the Class 5A bronze

medal, clearing 12-0 in the pole vault at

Mike Myers Stadium at the University

of Texas in Austin at the University Interscholastic

League’s state track and

field championships.

Tomball’s Brittany Wooten won the

event, clearing 12-6 with fewer misses

than Round Rock McNeil’s Kaitlin

Petrillose.

The climb to the third-place finish

completed a year-long comeback for the

Northwest junior, who broke her wrist

at the regional meet last year.

“I wore myself out,” Rabalais said.

“I’ve never worked so hard. It’s a relief.

There’s been so much anxiety and nonstop

thinking about it. I never thought

I’d do it after last year.”

Rabalais entered the meet hoping to

clear 12-6 or higher.

She missed only one vault at the lower

heights and then sailed over 12-0 on

her first try. Rabalais couldn’t get over

12-6.

“I couldn’t have asked for better,” Rabalais

said. “I got all my first attempts

but one, and that was because I needed

to move [the standards] up.

“I got 12-0 on my first try, so I get to

take this pretty medal home.”

After a nearly 10-hour delay,

Alvord’s Jordan Ward

finished seventh Friday

night in the Class 2A long

jump at the University Interscholastic

League state

track and field championships.

Ward landed a 16-5.5

jump at Mike Myers Stadium

at the University of

Texas in Austin.

“It was kinda frustrating,”

said Ward after the competition.

“It wasn’t a personal

best. But everyone was like

that. I just have to shrug

this one off.”

Childress’ Victoria Flemons,

who was in eighth

place after prelims, rose to

the top and claimed gold

with a jump of 17-11.5.

The long jump was originally

scheduled for noon

Friday. Thunderstorms

brought a halt to competition

at 10:30 a.m. The meet

did not resume until 3:30

p.m. At 4 p.m. word came

from the UIL that the Class

2A girls long jump was

moved to 9:45 p.m.

“It was pretty frustrating,

but everyone was in the

same boat,” Ward said. “I

warmed up four times and

ate four meals.”

Just before her first jump,

the Alvord sophomore encountered

more frustration

as she found out that

her mark had been moved.

She landed a 16-1.75 on the

jump.

“I was totally distracted

on my first jump,” Ward

said.

She rebounded to land

her best jump on her second

attempt.

Ward went into finals sitting

fifth. Her best attempt

in the finals was 16-3.5.

On the baking track at Mike Myers

Stadium at the University of

Texas in Austin, Decatur’s Hanna

Galloway turned in her second-best

time of the season.

The junior ran a 5:23.95 to finish

seventh in the Class 3A 1,600 finals

at the University Interscholastic

League’s state track and field championships.

“I can’t be too disappointed,” Galloway

said. “I ran what I was supposed

to.”

It was Galloway’s second appearance

at the state meet.

“Coming down here is always a

learning experience,” she said. “Running

with seven other good runners

from across the state, you always

learn something.

“It took Cynthia [Carrillo] to her

senior year to get a medal. Hopefully

it’s the same for me.”

Lucas Lovejoy’s Katie Ruhula won

the race in 5:04.82.

Ruhula and Argyle’s Colbea Harris

got out to a blazing pace. As the early

leader, Harris turned the first quarter

in 1:12.44. Galloway was four

seconds off their pace at 400 meters.

Galloway stayed four seconds back

at the halfway point. She hit 1,200

“She did OK,” said Decatur girls

track coach David Park said. “At

1,200 meters, she had the fastest

split that she ever had.

“She ran a disciplined race. I wanted

her to run a 75 first lap, and then

she had a great second lap. The third

lap, she held her own and gave herself

x400 Saturday

n Austin.

BY RICHARD GREENE

The Decatur Eagles’ 4x400

relay could not chase down the

other top Class 3A teams in the

state Saturday afternoon.

The Decatur quartet of Garrett

Muelhstein, Eliuth Sanchez,

Cris Ortiz and Colby

Moore finished seventh, running

3:23.71 at Mike Myers

Stadium at the University of

Texas in Austin at the University

Interscholastic League

state track and field championships.

“We ran good,” Moore said.

“We just didn’t have it like

some of the other teams.”

Dallas Madison won the race,

but was disqualified for a lane

violation. Texarkana Liberty-

Eylau claimed gold with a

3:17.41. Tatum was second in

3:18.05.

Decatur started on the inside

lane with Muehlstein running

the first leg. The sophomore

turned his quarter in 50 seconds

before handing off to Sanchez.

“My adrenaline was pumping

the whole time,” Muehlstein

said. “When the gun shot, I let

loose. I was hoping to run a

47 or 48. With the heat, it was

tough.

“Everybody ran really hard.

We couldn’t be prouder of ourselves.”

Sanchez got the baton to Ortiz

in sixth place. The Decatur

senior fought his way around

the track to hand off to Moore

at 2:33.

“It was a great way to end

at the state meet,” Ortiz said.

“You want to win first place,

but sometimes you can’t. It was

a tough field to run with.

“I’m pretty proud of us. We

worked hard and did our best.”

Moore turned a 50-second

quarter and nearly caught the

anchor leg from Sealy, finishing

three-tenths of a second back.

Burnet stops Bulls’ bats, playoff run

Bulldog pitchers hold Bridgeport to one run over final two games

By JOSEPH ROBERTS

A day after taking the first game

of the best-of-three series against

Burnet, the Bridgeport Bulls could

not generate enough offense to finish

the job.

Burnet held the Bulls to just one

run, while sweeping the doubleheader

Saturday to capture the

Class 3A Region I area series. Burnet

won game two 13-1 and the

clinching contest, 3-0, at Cecil Ballow

Baseball Complex at Tarleton

State University in Stephenville.

The loss closed Bridgeport’s season

at 20-9-1.

“I’m really proud of this team and

the way they came out and played

the whole year,” said Bridgeport

coach Ted Leps. “The kids should

be really proud of themselves for

their accomplishments.”

Rain forced the two squads to

move game one to Gatesville Friday.

On the strength of a two-hitter

from Blake Waldrep, the Bulls won

3-2. The Bridgeport hurler held

Burnet to two runs — one earned

— over seven innings. He struck

out nine and walked two.

“Blake did an outstanding job

against a good-hitting ball team,”

Leps said. “Blake was able to spot

his fastball and get his curveball

over for strikes.”

Austin Blevins led the Bulls’ offense,

going 3-for-3 with two doubles.

“Austin did a real good job at the

plate getting pitches to hit hard,”

Leps said.

Bridgeport plated a pair of runs

in the second and added a third in

the fifth.

The Bulls offense had no luck

Saturday in game two against

Burnet’s Travis Hoffmeister. The

hurler no-hit Bridgeport in a 13-1,

five-inning victory for Burnet.

“Hoffmeister pitched a great

game,” Leps said. “We just never

could get anything going against

the guy. He kept us off balance at

the plate with a variety of pitches.”

Diego Hernandez opened the

game with a leadoff walk before he

was picked off.

Bridgeport’s only scoring chance

came in the second inning after

back-to-back walks to Waldrep and

Dustin Green. The two reached

second and third after a wild pitch

from Hoffmeister. Waldrep came

home on a fielder’s choice by Drew

Cunningham.

Bridgeport managed only one

more baserunner in the game.

After being held to the two hits

Friday, Burnet wasted no time Saturday

jumping on Bridgeport starter

Kyle Parker. Burnet scored seven

runs in the first inning. Parker

lasted just two and two-thirds, allowing

12 runs — five earned — on

10 hits.

With the series tied at one,

Bridgeport sent freshman Omar

Martinez to the mound for game

three against Burnet’s Emil Litterer.

Martinez held the potent Burnet

offense to three runs — two earned

— on eight hits. He struck out two

and walked one.

“Omar pitched a great game, and

we played good defense behind

him,” Leps said.

Burnet squeezed across a run in

the first inning on a hit and error to

take a 1-0 lead.

It added another run in the fourth

and one in the top of the seventh.

The Bridgeport offense never

could break through against Litterer,

who shut out the Bulls and

allowed just five hits.

“We just never could string any

hits together to make a run,” Leps

said.

The Bulls could not cash in on

hits from Kevin Coan and Blevins

in the first inning.

In the bottom of the fourth, Cody

Henson led off with a single to

right, but Litterer retired the next

three batters to close the inning.

Trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the

seventh, Waldrep singled to lead off.

Green followed with a line drive to

center field that was chased down

for an out. Two groundouts ended

the game.

“We started to get a little rally

going, but the Burnet center fielder

made a great catch on a ball to shut

us down,” Leps said.

“We played good the third game.

The kids really battled to the end.”

BUCKING INTO TOWN — Mike Lee, who rode at the PBR event at Cowboys Stadium in February, will be one of more

than 40 cowboys competing Saturday at the JW Hart PBR Challenge in Decatur.

Cowboys ride into Decatur

Led by 2004 World Champion

Mike Lee, more than 40 professional

bull riders will converge on the Wise

County Sheriff’s Posse Arena in Decatur

Saturday night.

The riders will compete for nearly

$30,000 in prizes in the seventh annual

JW Hart PBR Challenge.

Gates for the event open at 5:30

p.m. with the riding starting at 8

p.m.

“It’ll be a great event,” said Roy

Young of WC Challenger Charities.

Young is one of the four people

ho spearhead the group that put

n the event. He is joined by Andrew

Rottner, Wendell Berry Jr. and Calvin

Jackson.

The four are friends of Hart, a former

world champion. Hart asked the

group if they would be interested in

being host of his event.

“He used to do it in Gainesville,”

Young said. “He told us, he’d get the

riders and bulls, if we put it on. We

gave it a whirl. It’s been very successful.”

The first six events raised approximately

$275,000 for area charities.

The United Way of Wise County

has been the chief recipient of the

aid, receiving $150,000, according to

Young.

Joining Lee in the field are topranked

riders Cord McCoy and Colby

Yates, along with renowned cowboys

Valiron de Oliveira, Reese Cates and

Corey Navarre.

All the riders will mount bulls for

the first round, and the top ten will

get a second ride in the short round

to compete for the top prize.

Tickets can be purchased at wcchallenger.org,

at the Wise Wireless

store at the Prada Shops in Decatur,

or by calling (800) 514-3849.

Wade Bowen will perform at Bono’s

Friday night as part of the event.

Heavy rains Friday left the

Paradise Panthers with only

one shot to down Redwater

and claim an area title.

The Panthers could not

outlast Redwater, which

pushed across a run in the

bottom of the eighth inning

to beat Paradise 3-2 in the

Class 2A Region II area

game.

The loss ended Paradise’s

season at 23-8-2.

“I am very proud of the

way my guys competed and

the season they had,” said

Paradise coach Scott Broussard.

“Both teams played

outstanding.”

The two schools planned

to play a best-of-three series

at Paris North Lamar

with game one scheduled for

Friday. That game was postponed

by the heavy rains

Friday, and the squads were

forced to play a single game

Saturday. After a search for

a dry field Saturday morning,

they settled on Sulphur

Springs.

Paradise sent its ace, Kaleb

Read, to the mound to

combat Redwater’s potent

offense. Read silenced Redwater

for five innings before

allowing a run in the sixth

and the tying run in the seventh.

With two out in the eighth,

Redwater scored the gamewinning

run.

Read allowed the three

runs on just eight hits over

seven and two-thirds with 12

strikeouts and four walks.

Paradise had taken a 2-0

lead in the fourth inning on

RBIs from Hunter Heathington.

Courtesy runner Ryder

Lybrand, and Toi Glover

scored the two runs.

The Panthers were

blanked over the final four

innings, while being held to

five hits.

Twice as nice

Alvord’s Ward brings home two state medals

Messenger photo by Joe Duty

FLYING TO MEDAL STAND — Alvord’s Jordan Ward clears a hurdle during the 300-meter event at the University Interscholastic League’s state track and field championships

Saturday. The junior took third in the race.

BY RICHARD GREENE

After accepting her second

medal of the day, Alvord’s Jordan

Ward found a new level of

happiness.

“Is there a cloud 12?” Ward

asked.

The Alvord sophomore took

silver in the 100 hurdles, running

15.05. She followed that

performance with a bronze in

the 300 hurdles, finishing in

45.0.

“It makes all those morning

practices worth it,” Ward said.

In the 100 hurdles, Ward got

to a strong start in lane seven.

Coming down the track, she

stayed near the front. Merkel’s

Carly Szabo in lane one was

able to sneak ahead to claim

gold in 14.89.

“I did pretty good,” Ward said.

“I tried to keep an eye on the

girl in lane one.”

In the 300 hurdles, Ward was

stuck out on the far outside

lane, meaning she could not see

her competition until after the

first curve.

“You just can’t let them catch

you,” Ward said. “It’s a lot easier

said than done.”

Altair Rice’s JaQuita Woods

came across the finish line in

44.29 for the victory. Rogers’

Lauren Bedrich took second in

44.51, just ahead of Ward.

Ward’s 45 was more than a

second and a half better than

her time at regionals.

“I stuttered over a few hurdles,

but it’s a new PR,” Ward

said. “I’m not complaining.”

Meekins reaches

goal, podium

Bridgeport junior takes second in shot

Messenger photo by Joe Duty

WITH A MIGHTY HEAVE — Bridgeport’s Haley Meekins moves across the ring to get off a

throw during the Class 3A girls shot put finals Saturday. Meekins took second.

By RICHARD GREENE

Bridgeport’s Haley Meekins did what she

came to Austin to do — win a medal.

The Bridgeport junior unleashed a throw

of 43-0 in the finals of the Class 3A girls shot

put to earn the silver medal at the University

Interscholastic League’s state track and field

championships at Mike Myers Stadium Saturday.

“I got my goal to get on the podium,” Meekins

said. “I think I made a statement.”

Crandall’s Emily Atkins won the event with

a throw of 45-5. Atkins finished with the top

six throws, going for more than 43 – 1.5 on all

of them.

Meekins landed four throws of at least 40

feet. Her shortest throw was 38-11.75.

“I felt good and was consistent hitting several

over 40,” she said. “I’ve been constantly

practicing my form. Coach has been working

with me about going from low to high and trying

to get over 40.”

Bridgeport coach Charlie Mann said her recent

work in the ring paid off Saturday.

“The last couple of weeks we’ve tried not to

change anything but just try to be more consistent,”

Mann said. “At regionals, she had the

one big throw. Today, she was hitting it on every

throw.”

“It fires me up she’s just a junior.”

CHOOSING CHILD CARE

Take into consideration a child’s

temperament, likes, dislikes, interests,

and behavior when choosing a

child care situation. Here are some

guidelines that should be followed to

ensure that a child is receiving quality

care suited to the developmental

needs of the little one. For an infant

under one year of age, take into

account a child’s desire to be nurtured

and held. For an older child, learning

styles and developmental levels of

play, interaction with other children,

intellectual curiosity, and the need

for individualized attention should be

considered. A family’s personal values

should also help in determining the

kind of care that is selected. Choosing

child care depends on the family’s

comfort level and the unique needs of

the child.

WHO GETS ANNUAL

MAMMOGRAMS?

According to the largest look at mammography to date, few women

follow the American Cancer Society’s recommendation that all women

over forty get yearly mammograms and breast exams. According to

the study, only 6 percent of the women who received mammograms ten

years ago got mammograms annually each year thereafter. Most of the

women received only five exams during the ten-year period covered

by the study, which is half the recommended amount. The important

thing to bear in mind is that mammograms remain the best method for

detecting breast cancer when it is most treatable. Women who screen

annually and are diagnosed with breast cancer die from the disease half

as often as women who do not get annual exams.

The most effective ways to detect breast cancer are through

mammography and a breast exam by your doctor. If you are at a higher

risk, it’s especially important that you perform breast self-exams and

report any lumps or abnormalities to your doctor. To schedule an

appointment for a breast cancer screening, call WISE OBSTETRICS

& GYNECOLOGY P.A. at 940-626-8008. Our office is conveniently

located at 1713 South FM 51, Ste. 201, Decatur. New patients are

welcome.

P.S. The American Cancer Society recommends that all women over forty

receive a mammogram and breast exam annually while younger women are

encouraged to have a breast exam every three years.

Fitness and Health

Trying a new challenge

By RICHARD GREENE

Twelve area athletes will

be hitting the pool, mounting

bikes and sprinting to

the finish line of a triathlon

June 12.

To get them ready for the

fast-approaching challenge,

this group of hearty warriors

are relying on the expertise

of Fit-N-Wise trainer

and certified triathlon coach

Mike Bowers and his team

of coaches.

The dozen athletes started

training with Bowers last

week.

“We have a great group

of people,” Bowers said.

“There’s a whole wide array

of talent.”

The group ranges in age

from 15 to 50. The class was

limited to 12 people.

“We didn’t want it to get

too big where they couldn’t

On the

Move

get individual attention,”

Bowers

said.

Some are former

athletes, and others

are just trying

to get in shape. In

the past, Bowers

said the five-week

course has been

for people getting

off the couch.

“It’s not for elite

athletes,” he said.

“We cover basic

fundamentals and try to get

them ready for the triathlon.

“Five weeks can make a

big difference in finishing or

not, or finishing with a smile

on their face.”

The athletes train with

Bowers twice per week for

an hour and a half.

“It’s a good workout,” he

said. “We do a lot of swimming

drills. We

do very little running.

We do more

strengthening

drills.”

These athletes

are getting ready

for the Try the Tri

event June 12 at

Fit-N-Wise. The

event is geared

toward beginning

triathletes. It is

limited to 100 athletes.

Runners tackle

Decatur 5K

Nearly 80 runners turned

out to battle the hills in the

Decatur 5K sponsored by

the Wise County Veterans

Group May 8.

Zane Park won the race,

running an 18:29. Jeanette

Webster at 25:38 was the

first woman across the finish

line.

“It was an absolutely gorgeous

day,” said Drue Bruton

of the veterans group.

Twenty-two active Marines

took part in the run.

“That was a blessing,”

Bruton said. “They were a

neat group to have there.”

10 ALL AROUND WISE, Decatur, Texas, Thursday, May 20, 2010

Community Focus

By MANDY BOURGEOIS

V.M. and Loretta Hill of

Bridgeport dedicated their

careers to teaching.

In fact,

together,

they celebrate

Wise

Ties

almost a

c e n t u r y

in education,

with

V.M. racking

up 42

years and

Loretta 50

years.

V . M . ’ s

path to

becoming

a teacher was heavily influnced

by his wife’s career

hoice.

“My wife was determined

o be a teacher. I didn’t have

nything else in mind. I

orked in the oil field for

while — I decided that

eaching was easier than

hat,” he said.

V.M. and Loretta came

o Bridgeport in the 1950s,

fter V.M. served with the

arines in the Korean War.

V.M. taught at Alvord for a

year, then moved to Bridgeport

in 1957.

“I decided I would leave

because the only bonus I

had was to drive the school

bus,” he said.

V.M. taught eighth grade

math for much of his career

while coaching various

sports.

“I coached everything

there was to coach except

baseball,” he said, listing

girls and boys basketball,

football and track.

After 20 years of coaching,

V.M. began teaching shop.

He was also vice principal

for one year.

V.M. retired in 1995 with

the intention of traveling.

However, a stroke the year

after retirement sidelined

his plans.

“That changed everything.

Wife’s career choice

influenced husband’s

Dump Trucks

for Hire

I was going to do a lot of traveling,

and the stroke killed

my traveling,” he said.

But, V.M. keeps active

at his house. He mows the

couple’s large lawn on a riding

lawnmower and “piddles

around out here and keep

the place.”

The couple have two children,

Vanessa Archer, a

teacher and coach at Decatur

Middle School, and Randy

Hill of Tolar. They also

have six grandchildren and

two great-grandchildren.

THERE’S A NEW PLAYER IN TOWN!

“Needed to get back to my life”

One cold January afternoon, Shirley

Lack was on her porch trying to

bring her dog back into the house

when she lost her balance and fell. She knew

instantly that she had done more damage

to herself than just the average fall; she

had actually fractured her right hip. Shirley

crawled back into the house and waited

there for 4 hours until her family returned

home. After undergoing surgery and some

physical therapy at the hospital, Shirley said,

“I knew that I had to have additional therapy

before I could go home.” Shirley had heard

about Senior Care Health & Rehabilitation

Center, a new facility, that had just opened

and set out to investigate from her hospital

bed. After completing her homework

regarding her next step to recovery, she

was ready to be admitted to Senior Care.

“I knew that the emphasis would be placed

on care,” explains Shirley; to her relief

she was correct. After spending 20 days

at Senior Care, Shirley was ready to return home and back to her

job. If you think you have seen her before, you probably have; Shirley is the smiling

face that greets you here at our Decatur Wal-Mart. Shirley explains, “ I would highly

recommend Senior Care to people; the staff are nice, very supportive, eager to please,

and knowledgeable”
