    It didn’t take long for the Lions to achieve that objective.

    The 5-foot-8 line-backer stripped the ball out of HaydenHar-graves’ hands — follow-ing a quick screen pass — before itbounced into the waiting arms of an Ozona teammate at theChristoval 34-yard line before the game clock reached the 11-minutemark in the first quarter.

    Lombraña, who also chipped in 26 yards and one touchdown,sparked the Lions to a 42-22 vic-tory in the Standard-Times Game ofthe Week at Lion Stadium.

    AUSTIN — With early voting in Texas only days away, the U.S.Supreme Court on Oct. 18 let stand a U.S. Fifth Circuit Court ofAppeals order, there-by allowing Texas’ 2011 voter identificationlaw to remain in force for the time being.

    Civil rights plaintiffs in Veasey et al. v. Perry et al. soughtto have portions of the law declared unenforceable onconstitutional grounds.

    In a Corpus Christi fed-eral courtroom, U.S. District JudgeNelva Gonzales Ramos struck down the law and ordered the state toreturn to election law practices in place before the Legislaturepassed the law in 2011.

    The law, Ramos wrote, intentionally discriminates againstHispanics and blacks in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965and is tantamount to a “poll tax” because of the cost to acquireany of the various acceptable forms of photo identifica-tion that avoter is required

    to present at the polls, in addition to a voter registra-tioncertificate, in order to cast an election ballot. Ramos ordered thestate to submit any proposed amendments to the election law to her.The State of Texas appealed and the Fifth Circuit granted thestate’s petition to let the law stand. The plaintiffs then turnedto the Supreme Court for redress, and were rebuffed.

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a dissenting opinion insupport of the plaintiffs’ assertion of unconstitutional effects ofthe Texas law. Gins-burg was joined in her dissent by JusticesSonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Majority support of the Texas law,however, came from the other six: Chief Justice John Roberts andJustices Samuel Alito, Ste-phen Breyer, Anthony Kenne-

    dy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. But the six produced nowritten opinion in support of the State of Texas.

    ABORTION PROVISIONS ON HOLD

    In a 6-3 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 14 put a hold ontwo requirements of Texas’ 2013 abortion law that reportedly haveresulted in the closure of 34 out of the 41 abortion-providingfacili-ties in the state:

    1. That abortion facilities meet the same standards asambulatory surgical centers; and

    2. Doctors who perform abortions at clinics in El Paso andMcAllen need not have active admitting privileges at a hospital notfurther than 30 miles from the location at which the abortion isper-formed or induced.

    In taking this action, the high court temporarily sus-pends atwo-week-old rul-ing by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Ap-pealsthat allowed those portions to stand.

    Meanwhile, the constitutional-ity of the entire 2013 Texasabortion law is under review in the Fifth Circuit.

    High court allows voter ID law for current electionSTATE CAPITALHIGHLIGHTS By Ed Sterling | Texas Press Association

    Realizing they have an untapped resource for making money, manyranch families have extended their operations to include incomestreams besides livestock. Some have resorted to wrangling dudes,guiding hunters or renting out their ranches for weddings. Afterall, there is a certain sym-metry, whether you're trying to find abuck or you're getting married, both have about the same odds forsuccess. You also have to have a license for both and there is abag limit, so to speak.

    As with a contractor who builds a house, the real money to bemade in marrying or hunting is in the "add-ons" you can charge for.For example, if you have to be at the scene of the accident anyway,you might as well get paid to be the one who marries the luckycouple. Granted, it does require some sort of certification but thebarrier to entry is quite low. When my sister wanted me to marryher, not in a literal sense, I got my certification from the RoseMinistries of Las Vegas, Nevada, for $35.00. And I got to pickwhether I wanted to be known as Pastor Pitts or Reverend Lee. (Fora few dollars more I could have received a framed certificateinstead of the cheap plastic card I settled for.) After the weddingat the reception you could charge for being the DJ who spins thecountry western music. (I'm assuming the young couple aren’t goingto want hip hop or rap music, and I use the word “music” with greatreservation.)

    What better to serve at the barbecue af-

    terwards than your own branded beef, mountain oysters and jerky.You could also charge for the bouquets and bouton-nieres made outof leafy spurge, sagebrush or kudzu. If your wife can sew, why notsell the bride and bridesmaid's dresses or rent out foot-wear likethey do at the bowling alley. And what guests wouldn’t pay forvalet parking, umbrel-las and pay toilets, after

    all, I don't think wedding guests should be expected to usenature's facilities. I think many affluent guests would also pay apretty penny for upgrading their seating arrangements from a haybale to a plastic chair.

    You could sell grass seed in cute little sacks to throw at thecouple afterwards instead of rice. This brings in more income andwill also reseed a pasture. If the party goers imbibe too much youcan provide wagons and carriages with designated driv-ers to haulthem home. Because they got their car dirty on your dirt road, ofcourse you’re going to want to offer car washes as they exit yourproperty. And if the father of the bride can't pay for all theseadd-ons, why not serve as his loan shark or bookie by carrying anote at an exorbitant rate of

    interest, or by placing his bets? After all, any man who letshis precious daughter marry a cowboy has got to be a BIGgam-bler.

    Granted, there are not so many opportu-nities for add-ons withhunting. Oh sure, you can charge a consultant fee to advise thehunter when he’s about to shoot one of your cows instead of amoose. You can also charge for a sleeping bag, guide services,port-a-potty, field dressing and for carrying out his buck.Speaking of carrying, if you can't get to the buck or elk yourguest shot you would quite naturally add on a charge for cleanupservices performed by the carrion that patrol your place.Naturally, if your guest killed an animal out of season, or anendangered species, I'm quite sure they'd expect you to charge forburial ser-vices too. I can envision a fee for dog rental, treestand or duck blind rental, ammunition and artillery, cutting andwrapping, bribing the game warden, taxidermy, and tee shirts andcaps advertising your ranch.

    To really hit the jackpot you could com-bine marrying andhunting by offering a hunting honeymoon after the ranch wed-ding.Or a dude honeymoon by charging them for fixing your fence,flanking calves at your branding, or putting up your hay.

    Just think my ranching friends, the world is your oyster and allyou have to do is not be afraid to charge for them. The oysters, Imean.

    Vote for school bondEarly voting for the Nov. 4 General Electionstarts this week. As Crockett

    County voters go to the polls, we ask that you vote in favor ofthe $3 million Crockett County Consoli-dated Common SchoolDis-trict Bond.

    This bond will fix a lot of areas in school district, in-cludingthe purchase of new buses, technology for computer and sciencelabs, resurface the track and new tennis courts.

    If passed the bond is a step in getting our school district’sinfrastructure upgraded.

    The bond’s total of $3 million will also remain here in CrockettCounty. Bond money is not subject to state recapture.

    In case you don’t know what that means, each year CCCCSD has tosend more than half of its budget to the state to be distribut-edout to poorer school dis-tricts, also known as the “Robin Hood”plan.

    CCCCSD has an estimated budget of $25 million. This year anestimated $15 mil-lion will be sent to the state, leaving only $10million to run the school district.

    While $10 million sounds like a lot, it goes fast when youfactor in payroll, health insurance, maintenance on existingbuildings and housing and other needs.

    With this bond, the dis-trict will be able to buy new buses andvehicles, which are greatly needed.

    Most of the vehicles in the district have more than 100,000miles. One of the suburbans has 220,000 miles.

    In the last year, buses have broken down at least seven times.Some of the times were on trips when students were returning in themiddle of the night. It has also been five years since the districthas pur-chased a new bus.

    The district’s vehicles are becoming unreliable and unsafe. Withthis bond, the district will be to upgrade the fleet.

    Our students and teach-ers are riding in these ve-hicles. Tripsare frequent in the school district with sports, band and academ-ictrips each year. We need to ensure that our chil-dren and teachershave safe transportation.

    Also included in the bond

    is new tennis courts and re-surfacing the track.

    If you question these two items, then you obvious-ly have notused them. The tennis courts are in terrible shape. Ozona is notable to hold a tennis tournament because of the poor condi-tion ofthe courts.

    We are also doing a disser-vice to our tennis team and to ourcommunity if these courts are not replaced.

    The same can be said for our track. While it is in goodcondition now, a track needs to be resurfaced ev-ery five to sevenyears.

    If the bond passes, the district can budget that bond money forfuture use on this project. School dis-tricts have 10 years tospend bond money.

    Both the track and ten-nis courts are not only used by students,but also by the public as well. There’s an-other reason to vote yesfor this bond.

    The bond will also help upgrade computers and sci-ence labs,purchasing teach-ing equipment and sup-plies, upgrade classrooms inthe high school and mid-dle school, purchase new equipment andupgrade safety issues in the agricul-ture shop and woodshop, fixroof leaks, repair teach-er housing and air condi-tioning andheating units.

    All of these needs will ben-efit everyone in the district.

    Taxes will be raised min-imally, $31.60 a year for a $100,000home or $2.63 a month. That’s chump change compared to value ofeducation this bond will provide for our students.

    Also, taxpayers 65 and over will not have their tax-es go abovethe frozen levy amount/ceiling that was es-tablished whenever theover 65 exemption was granted.

    Without the bond funds, these projects may take years toaccomplish.

    Leaving the schools as they are will fail to push on-ward thequality of educa-tion in the county.

    So, go to the polls and vote your conscience. But consid-er whatwe've said here. Vot-ing for the bond is the right thing to do forthe future of students in Crockett County.

    Vote in support of the CCCCSD School Bond.

    WHAT'S ON OUR MINDS EDITORIAL

    2014

    Time to make a commitment in your businessOct. 1 began a newprogram

    year for the ASU Small Business Development Center since weoperate on a federal term. For us it is a time of recommitment tothose we serve, the small business owner.

    As a team we will get together and revisit our values ofinteg-rity, excellence, service, and in-novation to make sure ourteam is still aligned with these impor-tant values, which are theguid-ing lights for us.

    We will recommit to each oth-er as teammates and then re-committo those we serve and make sure we are still aligned

    with their needs as our customers.

    We have a motto at the SBDC that goes like this: “We will mim-icwhat we are asking our small business clients to do.”

    Since most of us are for-mer business owners and managers,liv-ing up to this motto is impor-

    tant. If we suggest to an own-er they need to work long and hardto solve a problem in their business, then we also need to worklong and hard for them.

    If we suggest they need to reach out to resources we and othershave provided them, then we also need to reach out to re-sources tohelp them.

    If we suggest ways for them to work together better as a team,then we also need to work on our team dynamics. If we advise theiremployees may need more training, then we have to com-mit to doingthe same thing. If we provide technical training

    and tools to a small business owner and stress they need to meettheir sales, profit and cash position goals, then we need to meetour assigned goals (met-rics) as well.

    In doing these things we are making sure we have integrity (oneof our values), and we are earning the right to assist them. We arenot asking our clients to do anything we are not also will-ing todo ourselves.

    We are aligned with them in this way. This is very important tous that we recommit to this every year.

    My suggestion is to look at

    your business in the same way and ask the following questions.What commitments are you making to your key customers? Is your teamaligned with what your key customers or your key customer segmentsare wanting from your business?

    Get together with your team and revisit these things to makesure you are aligned with your customers or at least your keycustomer segments.

    I know in the heat of the bat-tle of everyday business it ishard to carve out time to do this. I remember those days well andeven now we find it some-

    times difficult to do. But re-member that successful busi-nessowners and managers step back and take time to work on theirbusiness, as well as work in the business.

    Stepping back and working on your teams’ alignment with yourcustomers’ expectations is a good example of working on yourbusiness. I wish you the best in this effort, and hope it is ofvalue to you.

    A friend told me to look in the mirror when I am shaving and seewho I really am. This morning I looked in the mir-ror and what didI see? I saw a mixture of both sides of my family. I saw somecharacteristics of my Dad’s family and I could also see some of thecharacteristics of my mother’s family. There are many positive orgood character traits I inherited from my parents but there is onenegative and that was the propensity (the desire to) to disobey orsin. Man-kind’s disobedience actually started with Adam and Eve inthe Garden of Eden, (Genesis 3:9-19) and it has passed on to everygeneration of every nation (Romans 3:9-12, 23). I can’t blame myparents because when I got older I chose of my own free will todisobey. I knew it was wrong and I did it anyway. I am accountableto God for what I have done and no one else, (Romans 14:12).Disobedience affects or changes our relationship to God. After Adamand Eve disobeyed God they knew something was different and theywere afraid and hid, (Genesis 3:7&8). As I looked in the mirrorI saw a sinner but one thing has changed. I have asked God toforgive my sins, (1John 1:9) and I have put my faith in ChristJesus (John 1:12; Romans 3:22-24). There is hope (Romans4:7&8). See you in Church next Sunday. Brother J

    WORDS OF INSPIRATION

    Missionaries to the homelessPedro and Penny Lazaro

    are missionaries based at the Calvary Baptist Church here inOzona. When Pedro first came to our country he lived the life of avariant, homeless and help-less on the streets of a large city.Since that time, God has wonderfully lifted him out of thatlifestyle. Today, he enjoys a very comfortable life with his wifePenny working as a heavy equipment operator for a local contractor.God has placed a very special calling on the lives of Pedro andPenny. He has placed a burden on the hearts of this couple to goback and serve and minister to the home-less and deprived of oururban areas. They have served in Ne-vada, Utah, and Oklahoma andnow in Texas. Since they came to Ozona they have carried the gospelto the homeless in San Angelo, Dallas, San Antonio and many pointsin between.

    Pedro and Penny felt led to do this in a very special way. Theyput together “care pack-ages” for those who are needy.

    These packages are actually small canvass bags filled with itemsneeded to subsist on the streets. The bags contain non-perishablefood items, personal hygiene items, clothing items, blankets,reading glasses and most important a Bible and Bible verses. Thebag and its contents have a value of about $50 or more. The bagsand items are purchased by the Lazaro’s with some help from variouschurch’s and friends of the ministry.

    When Pedro and Penny give one of the bags to a needy person theyalso deliver the good news of Jesus Christ and pray with thereceiver of the bag to give them an opportuni-ty to ask Jesus intotheir heart

    as their Savior. Calvary Bap-tist Church is proud that Pe-droand Penny have chosen to serve through the framework of ourfellowship. On Oct. 19, CBC helped Pedro and Penny stuff 50 bags tobe delivered by them over the next couple of weeks. Please pray forthis courageous couple as they go that they might be safe andsuccessful in their journeys. If you would like to support theirefforts, you may send contributions to Pedro and Penny Lazaro atCalvary Bap-tist Church, at P.O. Box 1004, Ozona, Texas 76943.

    DAN SLEDGE is the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Ozona,Texas.

    LIONS: from page 1overall and 1-0 in district. Christovaldropped to 2-6 and 1-1.

    “I was just doing my job,” said Lombraña, who cracked a smile asfans walked up and shook his hand and patted him on the shoulderpads. “It felt great to force a turnover. Right then and there, itwas a huge game changer.”

    Ozona would take advan-tage of the turnover by scor-ing on thevery next offensive play — a 34-yard run by Ryan Porras who outranmost of the Christoval defenders off a pitch to the left side atthe 11:42 mark of the first.

    Porras, who ran for 95 yards and one touchdown, credited hisdefense for set-ting up his offense in prime scoring position.

    “All the credit goes to them,” said Porras, who had two runs of20 yards or more in the win. “It really was a huge turn of momentumin the game. We were ready to play after a week off.”

    While the offense showed

    its prowess running the ball — amassing 257 yards on the ground— the defense stepped up its game as well.

    Christoval, which came into Friday’s contest averag-ing 29points per game, had its pass game slowed down almost to a halt —at times — due to the Lions keeping de-fenders in front of them andstaying aware of quick screen passes to both hash marks.

    “We’ve been playing re-ally good defense all year, but it’s evenbetter when you play great defense once dis-trict starts,” Lombrañasaid. “That’s the fun time.”

    The Lions would shut out the Cougars in the first half, whiletheir offense recorded another score — this time on a 15-yardscamper by Lom-braña with 21 seconds left in the first quarter —before jumping out to a 29-7 advan-tage at the break.

    “The run game helped a lot, and it opened up our play-actionpasses,” said Ricky Porras, who ran for 59 yards. “We were runningthe ball well. I have to give the credit to our stop blockers,

    who gave us (running) lanes.”Christoval was able to get

    going on offense, especial-ly quarterback Jakob Whit-worth.

    The junior quarterback threw for 348 yards and three touchdowns,but threw three costly interceptions in the loss.

    The Cougars scored 15 points in the fourth quar-ter, but onlyafter the Lions tacked on 13 points in the fi-nal two frames.

    Wide receiver Hayden Hargraves caught the two touchdown passes —for 39 and 10 yards — on the way to the 42-22 loss.

    After taking a week off from the football grind, Per-ez said hewas proud of the effort from his troops.

    “Our kids executed when they needed to,” said Perez, whose teamincreased its win streak to five games. “They watched film, werefamiliar with their offense and suc-ceeded.”

    Ozona travels to Forsan this week. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.Friday.

    OMS Lions take on Christoval

    The OMS Seventh Grade Lions shutout Christoval 36-0 lastweek.

    Scoring touchdowns: Ge-rardo Mata, Alec Lara, Mat-thew Galindo,Zachary Tala-mantez and Abraham Rodri-guez.

    Scoring two-point con-versions: Aiden Fuentes (2) and JadenFay.

    The Eighth Grade Lions lost to Christoval 22-0.

    The OMS Lions will take on Forsan at 5 p.m. Thursday at LionStadium.

    When a voter arrives at a polling location, the vot-er will beasked to present one of the seven acceptable forms of photo ID.

    Election officials will now be required by State law todetermine whether the vot-er’s name on the identifica-tion providedmatches the name on the official list of registered voters(“OLRV”).

    After a voter presents their ID, the election worker willcompare it to the OLRV. If the name on the ID match-es the name onthe list of registered voters, the voter will follow the regularproce-dures for voting.

    If the name does not match exactly but is “sub-stantiallysimilar” to the name on the OLRV, the voter will be permitted tovote as long as the voter signs an af-fidavit stating that thevoter is the same person on the list of registered voters.

    If a voter does not have proper identification, the vot-er willstill be permitted to vote provisionally. The voter will have sixdays to present proper identification to the county voterregistrar, or the voter’s ballot will be rejected.

    Voters with a disability may apply with the county voterregistrar for a perma-nent exemption. The appli-cation must containwritten documentation from either the U.S. Social SecurityAd-ministration evidencing he or she has been determined to have adisability, or from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairsevidencing a disabil-ity rating of at least 50 per-cent.

    In addition, the applicant must state that he or she has novalid form of photo iden-tification. Those who obtain a disabilityexemption will be allowed to vote by present-ing a voterregistration cer-tificate reflecting the exemp-tion. For moreinformation, call the Crockett County Tax

    Office at 392-2674. Voters who have a con-

    sistent religious objection to being photographed and vot-erswho do not have any valid form of photo identification as a resultof certain natu-ral disasters as declared by the President of theUnited States or the Texas Governor, may vote a provisionalbal-lot, appear at the voter reg-istrar’s office within sixcal-endar days after election day, and sign an affidavit swear-ingto the religious objection or natural disaster, in order for yourballot to be counted.
