Hutchinson County reminds voters that photo ID is required
STINNETT, TX Hutchinson County Clerk Jan Barnes reminds voters that photo identification will now be required for voting in person. “In Hutchinson County we are working to make sure our voters understand the new ID requirements and have all the information they need to cast their ballots,” said Jan Barnes. A voter will be required to show one of the following forms of photo identification at polling locations before the voter will be permitted to cast a vote. -Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) -Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS -Texas personal identification card issued by DPS -Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS -United States military identification containing the person’s photograph -United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph -United States Passport With the exception of the US Citizenship Certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 60 days before being presented at the polling place. This photo ID requirement is for voters casting ballots in person, not by mail. Voters aged 65 and older may vote by mail. Election officials are encouraging voters to update their voter registrations to reflect the names on their IDs. Voters may use IDs that do not exactly match the name on their ID if the names are substantially similar but will have to sign an affidavit stating they are the same person. Voters may look up their registration at and if heir name is not an exact match they can update their voter registration online at “By preparing now, voters can help make sure voting goes smoothly when it comes time for the election,” said Jan Barnes To check or update registrations, visit or call 806878-4005.

Recipe of the Day
Fish can be harder to grill than foods more commonly associated with grilling. Oftentimes, it takes time to find fish that can withstand a charcoal grill. Sea bream is one such fish that can handle a charcoal grill while making for a delicious meal. Firm enough to endure grilling, sea bream can be enjoyed in many ways, including the following recipe for “Grilled Bream with Wild Mushrooms” from Tony Mantuano’s “The Spiaggia Cookbook” (Chronicle Books).
The Place for the Beautiful Face
Add seafood to your summer grilling menu
Grilled Bream with Wild Mushrooms
Serves 4 - 8 tablespoons unsalted butter - 2 to 3 ounces wild mushrooms, such as Trumpet Royale, Honshimegi, and Cinnamon Cap, or chanterelles, morels, oysters, or porcini, brushed clean and sliced - 1/2 cup dry white wine - 1/2 cup chicken stock or prepared broth - 4 skin-on bream fillets, 6 ounces each - 1/2 ounce julienned fresh black truffle - Extra-virgin olive oil for brushing and drizzling - Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - Black Truffle Potato Puree (see box) for serving - Small fennel fronds for garnish (optional) Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to 400 F. In a saute pan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the mushrooms and saute until softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the wine, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan, and cook to reduce for 2 minutes. Add the stock and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining 6 tablespoons butter to thicken the sauce slight-
ly. Set aside. Brush the fish on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the fish on the grill, skin side up, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook until opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Remove from the grill and flip skin side up. Peel away the skin. To serve, divide the potato puree among the centers of 4 warmed plates. Spoon the mushrooms around the plates, reserving the pan sauce. Place a fish fillet, with the grill marks up, on top of the potatoes and drizzle the butter sauce on top of the fish and around the plates. Drizzle each serving with olive oil. Garnish with fennel fronds, if using. PC115740 SIDEBAR: Basic Potato Puree Makes about 4 cups - 1 & 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered - 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature - 1/2 cup heavy cream, warmed - Sea salt and freshly ground white pepper Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to the pan. Place over low heat until all excess water is gone, 2 to 3 minutes. Pass the potatoes through a ricer into a warmed bowl or transfer to the bowl and mash by hand with a potato masher. Fold in the butter and cream. To make Black Truffle Puree, prepare the basic puree, then fold in 3 tablespoons black truffle paste and 11/2 teaspoons white truffle oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Dear Editor,
Borger News -Herald
Letters to the Editor
I beliebe there’s only been one other time that I’ve written a letter to the editor, but I am compelled to do so today. Your article expounding Darwinism and the subsequent letters from those who praise your ideas are my reasons for speaking up. Let me begin by saying that I am grateful beyond words for the teachers in the public school system who give little credence to the theory of evolution. I am not a learned scholar, and have not poured over hundreds of scientific books so that I might become “enlightened”. What I have done is studied God’s Word and given my life to Him. My hope and faith are based on the inerrancy of the Bible, which says in Genesis that God created Heaven and Earth and made man in His own image. By faith, I believe that to be true and it brings me joy and great peace. Sincerely, Gayle White
Freedom to Exhale
Don Newbury The Idle American So far as I know, none of my elementary schoolmates made it to the Metropolitan Opera—unless as a member of the audience, usher staff or clean-up crew. On balance, our highest musical aspirations might have justified our inclusion in church choirs, but without expectation to be chosen for solos. When Christmas pageant time rolled around, we risked minimal embarrassment by shooting for silent roles— perhaps as shepherds. Donning masquerades as camels might best have fit our ability—front or back end— as long as each end knew what the other was doing…. ***** Lest you think our teacher was a buffoon, I hasten to emphasize that the late Betty Jo Rice was more than “up to speed” to handle music instruction for all eight grades. In fact, she was superior in numerous ways, not the least of which was showing us that music fits neatly into our lives long after school bells are silent. She convinced us that we could—and should—face the day smiling. Surveying the room, she smiled broadly each day, asking if we were ready for our breathing exercise. We were determined to please her, with our breathing if not our singing. We may have been among the best “breathers” on the planet, taking in big gulps of air, holding ‘em a few seconds, then exhaling on command. I’m here to tell you, we had the breathing part down…. ***** Little did we know at the time that now, some 70 years later, we’ve pretty much given up on singing outside the shower. However, we’re clinging to an exercise regimen, hopeful for another “inhale” after each “exhale.” Mrs. Rice might find it hard to believe that in these days, exhaling is the hardest part. We all have lists of breathtaking challenges, from the communities where we live to the globe which we share. Admittedly, Carter was big in pill production, but many folks today have as many problems as he had pills. Take the current Winter Olympics as an example. When will all parties concerned—participants, fans, media personnel and Russian hosts—feel free to exhale? Add pilots and flight attendants to the list; surely they have to wonder if someone has slipped a rigged tube of toothpaste onto the plane. (One guy mentioned he’d never previously heard of “Sochi,” and when he did, offered a “Gesundheit.”)… ***** As a former higher education administrator, I wonder how many educators today need to take some deep breaths, hold ‘em and then fully exhale. At the University of Texas, for example, worms are out of the can. What a mish-mash of problems between the governor, regents, chancellor, presidents and coaches, perhaps not in that order. Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa has had enough, opting to return to his medical career in organ transplants. After all, he’s performed kidney and liver transplants “every three or four weeks” during his five years as chancellor. On my best “chancelloring” days at a much smaller institution, they wouldn’t have thought me capable of transplanting mesquite trees. However, I could exhale with the best of them.… ***** On local levels, stomachs churn on many topics. Con-
sider “bullying,” a problem atop many lists. Some bullies seem committed to ugly tactics for a lifetime. (It wasn’t long ago that the word “bully” was usually followed by “pulpit.”) We risk boggled minds with daily news accounts of man’s ongoing inhumanity to man. Sometimes it’s more than a body can reasonably bear. (Deliver me from Denmark, where zoo workers have ghoulish ways to dispose of giraffes.) Only the lions win…. ***** I heard of a third-grader, call him “Wee Willie,” who asked his dad for $5 to take to school the next day. Sensing jagged edges of concern in his son’s request, Mr. Winkle, reached for his wallet, always eager to help out. Pausing, he asked, “What’s it for?” “Big Bob the Baddest Bully blabbed that if I don’t bring bucks—five of ‘em— he’s going to bludgeon me to a bloody blob,” Willie answered. The youngster found little comfort in his dad’s response, “No way, son, that’s extortion.” “Nope,” the third-grader countered, “Big Bob says it’s health care.” (No doubt Mr. Winkle gasped for air, hopeful of being able to exhale before too long.)…

Rodeo Days.... Rodeo Clowns
Deanna Bejarano Sports Editor
Pioneer Days Rodeo in Guymon, OK is scheduled for May 2nd thru May 4th at the Henry C. Hitch Pioneer Arena. As most all of you rodeo fans know, rodeos are not just bull riding, barrell racing, bronc riding, etc. It is also about the rodeo clowns. Rodeo clowns play a very important part of any rodeo. They are not just for entertainment, but for protection as well. When a rider falls to the ground it’s the clowns job to help that rider get out of the arena safely. Most rodeo fans know the name John Harrison. Mr. Harrison has become one of the premier entertainers in the rodeo circuit. He has been nominated as the top clown in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association
for several years. John rolls out his oversized protective barrel to use as his seat in the front row for the bull riding during the December 2013 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Guymon, OK. To be a rodeo clown you have to be voted on by your peers for the position. Harrison say, “It’s an awesome feeling...” He will be the main barrelman, funnyman, and entertainer/rodeo clown for this years Pioneer Days. Harrison is also a trick rider whom has performed at the NFR three times. The Pioneer Days Rodeo has announced that John Harrison has commited to be a huge part of the entertainment during the rodeo in May of this year, performing many acts like he did in Texas County a few years back. Of course no rodeo clown would be complete without
his barrel. People around Guymon have been asking to bring Harrison back because he is so funny and really gets the crowd going. Good clean family style comedy fun. Sometimes even adding his own family in the act. So mark your calendars for May 2nd thru May 4th to make your way to Guymon, OK for the Pioneer Days Rodeo and enjoy some good old clean family fun with the famous rodeo clown John Harrison and maybe his family too. For more information on the rodeo: Contact Ted Harbin (660) 254-1900 or at imteditor@ HYPERLINK “http://” http://www.guymonrodeo. com
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Thanks to that memorable shootout loss to the U.S., Russia must win four games in six days to bring home its first Olympic men’s hockey gold medals in 22 years. Alex Ovechkin and his teammates begin attempting this daunting task Tuesday against Norway when elimination games begin in Sochi. Russia’s fourth game of its home Olympics is the highlight of the four-game qualification schedule. The Czech Republic faces Slovakia in the renewal of a rivalry, while Switzerland has a rematch with Latvia, and tiny Slovenia goes for its second-ever Olympic victory against Austria. The top four teams from preliminary-round play all get the day off to prepare for their quarterfinal matchups. Canada, Sweden, the U.S. and Finland have an extra day of rest, but that hasn’t always been an advantage in this tense tournament. No team that went unbeaten in group play has won an Olympic gold medal since the NHL joined the games in 1998. Every champion was forced to regroup after getting beaten early in the
tournament, from the Czech Republic in 1998 to the host Canadians four years ago in Vancouver. That history suggests the Russians have a shot, and it’s impossible to write off their entertaining roster and all of its flaws. If Ovechkin, Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk can get their offense going, the Russians are a rough matchup for anybody in Sochi — even without a raucous home crowd roaring each time its team gets the puck over the opposing blue line. Norway hasn’t won an Olympic match since the home Lillehammer Games in 1994, and there’s little reason to suspect the Russians will be in any trouble — but it’s dangerous to assume anything in the Sochi tournament. Olympic veterans realize the tone of this 12-day event changes after the openinground games. Although nobody is under as much pressure as the host Russians, every player realizes one mistake in the second week can destroy their nation’s Olympic aspirations. “Obviously these (elimination) games always have

a bit more of a different feel, but you don’t want to have to change the way you play a whole lot,” Canada captain Sidney Crosby said. “I think we’ve been playing the right way here for three games. I think we’ve gotten better.” Even practice can be a hazard in Sochi, however. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Sweden’s 2006 Olympic star, had a nasty collision with defenseman Erik Karlsson during practice Monday and needed a few minutes to recover. Lundqvist said he’ll be fine. Switzerland hopes to duplicate its 1-0 victory over Latvia in its tournament opener behind goalie Jonas Hiller, who has two shutouts already in Sochi. The Czech Republic is hoping to build momentum behind 42-year-old Jaromir Jagr, the five-time Olympian with two goals already in the tournament. And Slovenia hopes for another improbable result behind Anze Kopitar, its only NHL player. The Slovenes beat Slovakia last week for their nation’s first Olympic hockey victory.
Winston travels to Texas to accept O’Brien trophy
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jameis Winston was in North Texas on Monday to accept the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top college quarterback. The Florida State star also managed a side trip to nearby Arlington to visit the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. That’s where the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and the Seminoles will open their national title defense against Oklahoma State in August. Oh, and that’s also where the first College Football Playoff championship game will be played next January. Winston says, “That’s our little slogan - from Dallas to Dallas. Hopefully, we’ll end up in the last game.” But for now, Winston is setting his sights on helping the school win its first college baseball title following 21 appearances in the College World Series.
Morrow, Blue Jays aiming for a bounce-back season
DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays fell far short of expectations last season, and starter Brandon Morrow blames himself and the rotation for many of the problems. At the Blue Jays’ first spring training workout on Monday, Morrow didn’t mince words in describing the rotation’s performance. Morrow says “we pitched like garbage.” Morrow went 2-3 in just 10 starts before a forearm injury in May forced him to miss the rest of the season. Picked by many to be a World Series contender, Toronto stumbled to a 74-88 record and finished last in the AL East for the first time since 2004. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says he expects former All-Star outfielders Jose Bautista and Melky Cabrera and third baseman Brett Lawrie to bounce back this year after missing significant time with injuries.

PARIS (AP) — French investigators have ruled out any criminal wrongdoing in the debilitating ski accident of Formula One great Michael Schumacher, a state prosecutor said Monday. Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy said “no infraction by anyone has been turned up” and the probe has been closed, his office said in a statement — responding to questions about whether the Meribel ski station in the French Alps or an equipment maker might have had some role in Schumacher’s injury. The 45-year-old German auto racing legend suffered serious head injuries on Dec. 29 when he fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock off the side of a demarcated slope in Meribel. Schumacher has been treated at
No criminal wrongdoing in Schumacher ski accident
Grenoble University Hospital in southeastern France since then. Quincy’s office said the rock that caused Schumacher to fall was 10.4 meters (34 feet) away from another rock upon which he hit his head — and each were more than 4 meters away from the edge of the red-level piste that he was on. “The accident took place in an off-piste area,” the prosecutor’s statement said. “The signage, marking, staking and information provided about the edges of this slope adhere to French norms in place.” For many fans, the biggest concern is about Schumacher’s health and recovery prospects — and doctors have started waking him from an induced coma. The most recent in a string of state-
ments from his spokeswoman was released last week but declined to provide further details about his health, citing privacy concerns. Experts have said it will likely be months before Schumacher’s prognosis becomes clear — and that lasting brain damage is a possibility. Schumacher earned universal acclaim for his uncommon and sometimes ruthless driving talent, which led to a record 91 race wins. He retired from Formula One in 2012 after garnering an unmatched seven world titles. His accident happened on a family vacation in the Alps as Schumacher was skiing with his 14-year-old son.

endangered children.” Launched in 2009, the IPC program is designed to teach troopers and other law enforcement officers how to recognize indicators of endangered children who do not exhibit obvious signs of abuse. This program offers invaluable and sophisticated training created to help law enforcement officers identify and recover missing or exploited children, and arrest suspects for sexual assault of children. As a result of this training, DPS has made more than 30 criminal arrests, initiated numerous criminal investigations, and recovered 101 missing and exploited children since the program’s inception. In 2013 alone, 39 children were recovered by DPS in Texas. Throughout the years, the IPC program has been responsible for uncovering crimes affecting children and arresting the perpetrators in instances involving:
DPS Rescues 39 Children in 2013
AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) announced today that DPS officers – with the support of the DPS Interdiction for the Protection of Children (IPC) program – rescued 39 missing or exploited children in 2013. In addition, the IPC program has now reached an incredible milestone, recovering more than 100 missing and endangered children since 2010. “The trafficking and sexual exploitation of children is reprehensible and threatens our most vulnerable and precious resource, and we are committed to pursuing the despicable predators who seek to do them harm and rob them of their innocence,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “With this premier training program, DPS is proud to lead the way in ensuring officers have the multifaceted education and training necessary to detect and rescue
Premier interdiction program exceeds total of 100 child recoveries
· Possession of child pornography · Sexual assault of a child · Human trafficking · Commercial sexual exploitation of children · Abduction To date, DPS has provided the IPC training to its own officers as well as other law enforcement, including more than 3,030 officers in Texas and approximately 4,080 officers outside of Texas, nationally and internationally. A variety of other groups interested in the protection of children – including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the New Jersey State Police in preparation for the Super Bowl, and a variety of child advocacy organizations – have also received this training.
Amarillo man indicted by Federal Grand Jury for robbing Texas Plains Federal Credit Union
AMARILLO, Texas — James Aaron Sims, 23, of Amarillo, Texas has been charged by a federal grand jury with one count of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. The indictment alleges that on February 3, 2014, Sims robbed the Texas Plains Federal Credit Union, located at 804 LUBBOCK, Texas — A federal grand jury in Lubbock has returned a two-count indictment against the former Chief of the Rising Star Police Department. William Jason Kelcy, 41, is charged with one count of theft of government property and aiding and abetting and one count of theft of a machine gun and aiding and abetting. Kelcy is expected to self-surrender in response to a summons and make an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge E. Scott Frost later this month. Today’s announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. Kelcy was employed as the Chief of Police of the Rising Star Police Department from June 11, 2009 to January 10, 2013. Rising Star, Texas, is located approximately 55 miles southeast of Abilene, Texas, in southwestern Eastland County. Under the National Defense Authorization Act, the Defense LogisS.

Kelcy fraudulently gave, sold, bartered, or otherwise disposed of the equipment to other law enforcement agencies, officers, and private citizens with no law enforcement responsibilities. In fact, Kelcy sold, traded, pawned or attempted to sell, trade, pawn, several robbery, as charged, is 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

EarthTalk: Wind Power’s Bright Future
Former Police Chief in Rising Star indicted
Dear EarthTalk: What is the latest prognosis for wind energy to command a larger piece of the renewable energy pie? -- Peter M., Akron, OH Hydroelectric sources of power dwarf other forms of renewable energy, but wind power has been a dominant second for years, and continues to show “hockey stick” growth moving forward. According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), global cumulative installed wind capacity—the total amount of wind power available—has grown fifty-fold in less than two decades, from just 6,100 megawatts (MW) in 1996 to 318,137 MW in 2013. And the future looks brighter still. Analysts from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) predict that wind will account for the largest share—30 percent— of new renewables added to the global power grid by 2030. That new renewables are expected to account for as much as 70 percent of all new power sources over the next 20 years means that wind is poised to become a major player on the global energy scene. Here in the U.S., energy generated by domestic wind farms has nearly tripled in
just the past four years, despite a brief hiccup due to a lapse in the Production Tax Credit, a renewable energy production incentive that effectively subsidizes the creation of more wind farms. But even despite this, wind represented about a third of all new power added to the U.S. grid over the past five years. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a leading environmental nonprofit and wind power advocate, forecasts that the U.S. will derive some 20 percent of its total electricity production from wind by 2030. “The U.S. industry has many reasons for favorable long-term prospects,” reports the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), a nonprofit trade group representing the wind industry. “In addition to the record activity at the end of 2013, wind energy helped keep the lights on and insulate against temporary price spikes during the recent ‘polar vortex’ cold weather snap, demonstrating the value of wind power in a balanced energy portfolio.” AWEA also points out recent reports showing how incorporation of wind energy lowers costs for electric consumers. “And critical to some parts of the country facing continuing drought, wind energy uses no water in
its production, as well as releasing no emissions,” adds the group. The fact that wind energy in the U.S. avoids some 100 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually is also good news. AWEA adds that that number will grow as wind energy scales up to 20 percent of the grid and beyond “making the addition of more wind power one of the fastest, cheapest, and largest-scale ways for states to meet the Administration’s new goals for reducing carbon pollution from power plants.” While wind continues to grow fast, solar may finally be catching up. According to BNEF, some 36.7 gigawatts (GW) of new solar photovoltaic capacity were added worldwide in 2013 compared with 35.5 GW worth of new wind power installations. BNEF adds that global demand for wind turbines may actually shrink in 2014 (by five percent), representing the first such decline since 2004. But Justin Wu, head of wind analysis for BNEF, says it’s just a temporary blip: “Falling technology costs, new markets and the growth of the offshore industry will ensure wind remains a leading renewable energy technology.”
high-value military surplus items that he fraudulently obtained through the 1033 Program. Count Two of the indictment alleges that in late June 2012, Kelcy transferred and attempted to transfer a Thompson Ramo Wooldridge M14 machine gun. An indictment is an accusation by a federal grand jury and a defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence until or unless proven guilty. However, upon conviction, each count of the indictment carries a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. The Defense Criminal Investigative Service led the investigation with assistance from the City of Eastland, Texas and the Texas Department of Public Safety, which helps administer the 1033 Program throughout the state. Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda R. Burch of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock is in charge of the prosecution.

Girlfriend’s texts to stepfather throw family out of whack
they weren’t, I’d take my son and leave.) I know it embarrasses him, but most parents thank me because they want to meet the parents of the kids who are in their homes. Times are different for our kids today. I just can’t believe that someone would simply drop off a child and speed away when he/she has absolutely no clue who these people are. I’m not a helicopter parent; I’m just a mother who loves my children enough to make sure they’re in good hands. Recently, a ninth-grader in our school district had a house party where 30 kids received underage drinking citations! Sorry -- but I’m taking no chances. Parenting is not being your child’s best friend. Please encourage parents not to be afraid to reach out to other parents. It really does take a village.
