Praise the Lord for the Wonderful Rain!

Reported by Tex Wright,"The Santa Anna Peaks were the high ground, or so it seems. Here at the foot of the peaks I measured 5.80 inches of rain. Emptied at 9:00Pm Saturday night. It acutally filled the cracks in my yard. Most of the rainfall was of the slow soaking kind, with very little run off here."

I had about six inches in one of my gauges that measures 5.5, plus two tenths after it was emptied and the other one ran over at 4.

2012 Ex Student of the Year - Brian N Baucom

After Brian's best laid plans to attend the University of Texas went awry because of funding or a lack there of, he worked in the Oil Field for a few months and then returned to the famous Santa Anna Tile Co. Brian worked at the Tile company for three years until he turned 21. At that time, he struck out into the University of Hard Knocks (Oil Patch) to earn his degree.

Brian married Glenda Margo on December 15, 1962. They have two children, Tina and Kevin and two Grandsons, Aaron and Garrett. Currently, Brian and Margo reside in League City.

After working a few months in the oil patch, Brian began working for Ingersoll Rand Drilling Services as an Operator. The company moved them around Texas for a couple of years. Then in 1966 the couple ended up in Texas City along Galveston Bay. Soon after arriving in Texas City, Brian went to work for American Oil Company (Amoco) at their Texas City Refinery working multiple different jobs. After 33 years with the company, he retired from Amoco (now owned by BP). Thus, he finally earned that hard sought degree from the University (of Hard Knocks)….a wonderful retirement package...

During those 33 years at the refinery he had worked as an Operator, Craftsman, Planner, Supervisor and ended his career as the lead planner for the refinery. He was also a Volunteer Fireman at the refinery and fought some spectacular fires. One year during his fire fighting days, Brian was honored as Fireman of the year.

Brian uses his planning skills to keep his class together and organizes a get together every year or two. He has 5 sisters and two brothers. His planning abilities also come in handy keeping the family in touch. They have had family reunions from the east coast to the west coast including New Hampshire, Washington, Colorado, and Wyoming. They have also had several reunions in Galveston on the West Beach.

After retirement in 1999, Brian and Margo moved to Granbury and did some serious traveling around and through US. They also enjoyed two scenic cruises to Alaska in 2000 and 2008.

Although Brian had that University diploma (a/k/a retirement plan), sharp drops in the stock market and boredom brought him out of retirement. Only 18 months later Brian returned to work for Fluor Engineering Company where he worked for another 10 years. He and Margo moved back to the coast in 2006 and still live there in League City. He tells folks, he failed retirement.

Brian has been very active in sports and hobbies over the years included coaching Little League Baseball and football, playing Softball, bowling, white water canoeing and traveling. He continues to be heavily involved at his church through teaching, preaching, and leading Evangelism Seminars.

Brian and Margo have been fortunate enough to have traveled to all 50 of the States in the beautiful USA. They love driving through the beautiful USA from sea to shining sea, from the colorful Maples of the New England States to the Redwoods of California, across the wheat and cotton fields in the plains to the Purple Mountains of Colorado and Wyoming. They love photographing the beautiful Texas Bluebonnets the Hill Country flowers in the spring and the awesome valley birds, whooping cranes, and Gulf coast birds. Brian calls his Texas Trips his "Waltz Across Texas" tours. They share their pictures with friends and strangers (anyone who will look at them really). Brian and Margo have also traveled to Europe and across a large part of Canada, but nothing compares to these Great United States.

2012 Santa Anna Mountaineer Football

I have been really busy starting back to college at Tarleton State and haven't had much time to spend on the News, but I caught up on homework and told some of the players I would try to get some photos of games up this week.

The Mountaineers defeated the Veribest Falcons 75-28 at Veribest in Zero Week but I didn't make the trip to Veribest as I was oncall at work.

In Week One The Mountaineers defeated the Panther Creek Panthers 71-24 at Panther Creek.

I did not take a lot of photos of the game but here are some of my favorites:






Week Two saw the Mountaineers at home against the Paint Rock Indians and the Mountaineers rolled over the Indians by a score of 46-0 and here are some of my favorite photos:











Week Three saw the Mountaineers at home against the Mullin Bulldogs and the Mountaineers defeated the Bulldogs by a score of 54-8 and here are some of my favorite photos:



















On September 20th we made the Junior High game in Mullin. The Junior High Mountaineers defeated the Mullin Junior High Bulldogs but I am not sure what the score was. Here are some of my favorite photos of the game:

Santa Anna Livestock Association Annual Donation Drive in Progress

It is stock show season again and the Santa Anna Livestock Association is gearing up for the season. It is once again time for the SA Livestock Association Annual Donation Drive. We are asking for your donations for the upcoming stock shows in January. Plans are already underway in organizing the local stock show as well as the county stock show.

Last year, with the help of your donations, we were able to purchase 16 animal projects at the county show & sale. Our goal this year is to provide the same assistance to these youth as last year.

The Santa Anna Livestock Association is a local non profit organization that has been in existence the last 50 years. The Livestock Association’s goal is to help benefit our local youth at both the local livestock show as well as our county livestock show. The Livestock Association finances are based strictly on donations from our local community and donations outside of our area.

Donations are used primarily to purchase livestock exhibits at the County Livestock Show & Sale. Livestock exhibits at the sale average $300-$600 per animal. Donations are also used for maintenance on our local show bard and to fund our local livestock show.

With the few volunteers that the SA Livestock Assoc has, they have managed to keep this organization going. This organization plays a vital role in building our youth for a better tomorrow.

The SA Livestock Assoc. is asking the community to pull together to keep a vital part of our community going. Through your donations, we can make this happen.

If you would like your donation to remain anonymous, please let us know. We, as an organization, believe in giving you, the donor, recognition for keeping this organization going.

We would like to thank all who have donated in the past years and hope that this fundraiser will bring more of you into becoming a vital part of this organization and continue to help build the youth of our community.

Your donation is tax deductible only if you show it as a sponsorship or advertising expense.

Mountaineer Football Making Noise

Lady Mountaineer Cheerleaders are pictured L to R: (Kynedi Bradley, Courtlyn Lishka, Heather Wetsel, Hannah Hartman, Kourtney Guerrero, Destiny Davis, and Mountaineer Mascot Jessica Robertson)

If you ask people in the area, they would never guess that the Santa Anna Mountaineers have the best football record 4 games into the season. Brownwood, Bangs, Coleman, Early, Panther Creek, not one of them can say what the Mountaineers can say….Undefeated. If you ask the coaching staff and the football team about it, they would say one thing, “we are just beginning.”


Point after kick by Mikey Rhoades

Santa Anna Mountaineers defeated the Mullin Bulldogs 53-8. After a shaky start on defense, the Mountaineers gathered themselves and ended the game at halftime. Defensively, the Mountaineers were lead by Nate Salazar who alone had 11 tackles. “It is pretty hard to get double digit tackles in a football game; that is pretty special,” Coach Adams stated when he heard of the 11 tackles.


Nate Salazar on the tackle

Offensively, Michael Valencia, once again with the help of his teammates, showed what the difference a year can make. Valencia had 260 yards rushing on only 7 carries. Touchdowns were scored by Valencia, Rhoades, Z. Diaz, and L.Diaz.


Football team praying before game with Coaches Norris, Adams, and Garcia

“The community has something to be proud of. For the first time in a long time, people are paying attention to this small town outside of Brownwood. I am not from here, but I am proud to be here,” Garcia said when he was asked about all the great things that were going on in Santa Anna.

This week is Homecoming week, and the Mountaineers will be working hard to keep their newly found “attitude” going. “We looked at film, and know what Eden has. They have some speed to them. We have to get to work and focus on our task at hand,” stated A.D. Cameron Norris.

Kick-Off time is set for 7:30pm. Come early and find a seat. Word is spreading about the Mighty Mountaineers.

JV Continues to Win


Devan Denton on the carry

The JV Mountaineer team traveled to Blackwell on Thursday and returned home with another win. Blackwell improved from the first time they played Santa Anna, but in the end, the Mountaineers came out on top. The Mountaineer offense was lead by Malcolm Smith, and Devon Denton at the tailback and fullback positions. The Mountaineers were able to score 4 times. Defensively, the Mountaineers were able to pick off two passes which helped secure the victory over Blackwell. This Thursday, the Mountaineer JV team will be playing at home.

Jr. High Goes to 2-0


Kolbi Escobar on the carry

The Jr. High Mountaineers got their second win of the season. The Jr. high traveled to Mullin Thursday night and were able to hold off Mullin with a score of 48-6. The Jr. High team is learning quickly that defense does win games. The Mountaineers are getting very stingy with points on the board. They like to see them on our side, and not on the opponents side. Offensively, Coach Adams is coaching the young men multiple formations and the kids seem to catch on fairly quickly. Don’t be surprised to see even more formations as the season continues. The Jr. High team will travel to Eden on Thursday for their third game of the season.


Rockwood Homecoming 2012

On Saturday September 15, a small group embraced the crisp morning air as they gathered for the Memorial service held at the Rockwood Cemetery before the Homecoming festivities. Billie Gay Abernathy welcomed the group and introduced Retired Colonel Larry Rutherford, who gave a very moving speech, which was richly enjoyed by all present. A prayer of thanks and protection for our troops, along with the playing of taps ended the memorial.

Although the crowd was smaller than usual, a lot of familiar faces were present along with new ones to add to the enjoyment of the day. The community center was all decked out in red, white and blue in honor of the theme “Salute to the Troops”. Memorabilia from Miss Linnie Box was displayed. Many pictures of the service men she had written during WWII and patches that had been sent to her from the returning servicemen of the Rockwood area were included in the display. Dale Hibbs gave the blessing and the noon meal was served. All enjoyed barbequed brisket and the various dishes brought by the attendees. No one could walk away hungry and certainly the dessert table had an abundance to choose from. Royce McIver called the meeting of the Rockwood Cemetery Association to order. He gave a report on the condition of the cemetery and any improvements that had been made. Royce introduced the serving directors for the Cemetery Association. Billie Gay Abernathy gave a financial report and then Judi Bryan took over the meeting for the election of two Directors, as Royce’s term was expiring. Donna McIntire made motion to reelect Royce McIver, Yolinda Weston seconded and the motion passed. Next up was election of Faye Wise; Larry McIntire made motion to reelect Faye, Reba Cozart seconded and the motion passed. Royce and Faye will each serve another 2 year term on the Cemetery board. Royce then thanked everyone for coming and adjourned the meeting.

Jennifer Rutherford and Kim Bray Whitaker drew for door prizes. Amanda Abels, 2- month old daughter of Michael & Lucy Gregg Abels was given a $50 savings bond donated by Coleman County State Bank for being the youngest in attendance. Next was the drawing for the hand sewn quilt made by the ladies of Rockwood. The winning ticket was read with Joyce Ralston being the lucky winner. A silent auction of the many donated items from local businesses was held along with a live auction of some very special items. One item of interest was a mesquite desk set that was given by Travis King. He had made the item from a mesquite tree that once stood on the original Rockwood School grounds. Lots of laughter and bidding wars were enjoyed by the crowd.

Special thanks go out to the many merchants that donated items for the Homecoming; Santa Anna National Bank, Coleman County Telephone Cooperative, Inc., Coleman County Electric Cooperative, Coleman Interbank, Coleman County State Bank, John Morris Travelers Treasures, Guthrie and Son, Grammer's, Shirley’s Originals, The Quilter’s Patch, Petal Patch, Leather and Lace, That Santa Anna Store, Barb-D-Wire Babe, Life’s Delights Photography, Mesquite Time, Tyson Pharmacy, The Bargain House, Earl Smith Jewelry, Southern Charm Antiques, Owl Drug Store, and these individuals who donate their time and handiwork for Rockwood: Gary Whitaker, Sharon McCreary Lee, Travis King, and Yolinda Weston.

Thanks go out to Jennifer Rutherford, Jimmie Gail Davis, Kim Whitaker and Billie Gay Abernathy for their work on “The Salute to the Troops’ decorations and preparations for the Homecoming activities. The committee expresses a special thank you to Ret. Col. Larry Rutherford for his time and the speech he presented at the cemetery.

Please remember to mark you calendars for next year. We hope to see you there, to once again remember the days of Rockwood and all the wonderful people who once were and are still a part of this small but much loved community.

Santa Anna Mountaineer JV and Junior High

The JV is following in the footsteps of the Varsity football players. The JV has started off to an undefeated season as well. The boys are playing hard and preparing even harder as they face off each week against the varsity. Several of the players have mentioned that facing the Varsity Team is a great way to prepare because the Varsity team does not take it easy on them. The JV Mountaineer team is averaging 45 points a game and will face Blackwell this week in Blackwell at 6:00pm. The Mountaineers defeated Blackwell in their first meeting.

The Junior High Mountaineers opened their season with a great win over Paint Rock. Paint Rock had more players and were bigger, but the heart of the Jr. High prevailed as the Jr. High brought home their first victory of the season. The Jr. High plays this week against Mullin at Mullin game is scheduled to kick off at 6pm.


Prayer at the Pole

Submitted by Coach Garcia
Santa Anna FCA and The First Baptist Church of Santa Anna are teaming up in this year's Prayer at the Pole. This will mark Santa Anna FCA's first event of the new school year. All are invited to attend and gather in front of Santa Anna High School at 7am on September 26th. Also be on the lookout for more events, and community services by Santa Anna FCA.


On Top of the Mountain

Submitted by Coach Garcia
Mountaineers start off the season at 3-0. The Santa Anna Mountaineers are off to a quick start and are still undefeated after beating Paint Rock 46-0. The Mountaineers were lead by Junior tailback Michael Valencia. Valencia accounted for 4 touchdowns in the game. Sophomore Lucas Diaz put up a couple of touchdowns of his own. The Mountaineer defense was rather stingy by not allowing Paint Rock to get a single first down. “The boys are playing different this year. After a growing season last year, I think the boys have realized what kind of potential they have in them. They are playing unselfish ball, and hard hitting ball. We are in the weight room everyday getting bigger and stronger. We (the coaching staff) are very pleased with what the boys are doing on the field and also at school. Teachers and administration are giving us compliments on the positive attitudes from the football team,” said Coach Garcia.

The Mountaineers will be tested on Friday as they face Mullin in a battle of undefeated teams. Mullin will come into Mountaineer Stadium averaging over 70 points a game. “They are a stout team. They have a pretty good true QB and TB. They are doing something that is working for them if they are averaging 70 points a game,” stated Coach Garcia.

When asked of the game plan for the week and the game, Garcia said they have a routine in place that has been working and they do not plan on changing it. “If we go out and execute and play the way we have been playing, I have no doubt that we will come out on top. Coach Norris, Coach Adams, and myself have put two things into the minds of the team. One-Get Better Everyday and Two-NEVER GIVE UP.”

Kick off time is at 7:30 in Santa Anna.

Santa Anna vs. Veribest

Submitted by Coach Garcia:
Mountaineer rushing game with 155yds on 14 carries with 2 touchdowns. Sophomore Lucus Diaz added two touchdowns on 7 carries with 134yds. The passing game was also in effect as Senior Mikey Rhoades scored on passes of 50 and 53 yds. The Mountaineers also used their special team talents to score on kick off returns and punt returns.

Defensively, the Mountaineers were pretty much in control the whole night. 2 big plays from Veribest moved the game past halftime and into the 3rd quarter. Michael Valencia and Nate Salazar lead the team with 6 tackles each. Sophomore Colby Nelson had 5 tackles.

Up next for the Mountaineers will be Panther Creek. The game will be in Panther Creek, Thursday, September 6th at 7:30pm. This looks to be an exciting game renewing a long time rivalry between the two schools.

From Coach Norris: It was a good win for the boys. We came out swinging, but mental mistakes were made and kept Veribest in the game for a while. We did some things very well, but there are still plenty of things we will be working on and improving on.


Fellowship of Christian Athletes

Santa Anna Athletes will have something new to cheer about this coming Fall semester. A new organization will begin this coming school year that will bring the athletes of Santa Anna ISD together as one. Santa Anna ISD welcomes, for the first time, The Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Coach Garcia worked very hard, for a year, to get FCA on campus. After all the applications, paperwork, and emails, Santa Anna is now a recognized FCA campus. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives... one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

The FCA Vision To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches.

The FCA Mission To present to athletes and coaches and all whom they influence the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.

The FCA Values Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.

From Coach Garcia: It is very exciting. I wanted the athletes here to be able to see the wonderful things that FCA has to offer and what the students can offer to FCA. I was a member of FCA at my high school and really enjoyed it. I have a few meetings in the coming weeks with area and regional directors of FCA to get everything up and running. Any student athlete in Santa Anna from grades 7th through 12th is invited to join FCA. For more information, you may look up Santa Anna FCA on Facebook.
