IT'S TIME FOR THE PARSON REUNION

Submitted by Darell (Tex) Wright

On September 13 ( don't worry, its not on Friday) The Frank Affie Parson branch of the Parson clan will gather in Brownwood, Texas.

You know - there at the Bennie Houston Park. Its still at 505 Cordell. We have the Community Center reserved for the day.

We will start about 9:00AM and go till everyone is tired.

I haven't heard from the planners, but watch out. If I remember correctly they will probably pull out all stops.

Bring your antique Black and White pictures or even some of those old faded color photos. We will try to help you remember who is in the pictures.

Bring your favorite foods 'cause I'll try to remember to help you clean up, sop up the gravy, and even nibble at the left overs, if there are any.

The "Fund' will provide plates, plastic ware, paper towels, etc.

Also, meats will be provided. If you have a meat dish that you just can't live without, bring it anyway. I'm sure that you will have help cleaning the bowl ( refer to the upper portion of the letter).

As usual, we will have the auction as this is what helps to pay for our activities. Bring 1 or two items that you think no one could live without. The committee will sort and pick. Some items will be placed in a silent auction, the rest will be auctioned not long after lunch. BRING YOUR WALLET. Be sure to mark your items or at least remember what you brought as they will go home with you if they don't sell.

A donation bucket will be placed near the door so that you may contribute if you don't want to stay for the auction.

We will ( I hope) have some kin that recently found us through genealogy sources. She still lives near the area where Grand Pa (Frank Affie) was born.

Look to see you there

I just want to be sure and say thank you to all of you for your words of comfort during the loss of my Dad.


My Dad

On Thursday, August 14th, one of my heroes passed away. My Dad, Dan Pelton, died at about 5:35 AM at the Trinity Mother Francis Hospital in Tyler.

He had battled pneumonia after falling and breaking his hip a couple of weeks ago. He had gotten up late one night to go get a midnite snack of all things.

Born in December of 1931 to W.N. amd Pearl Elizabeth, Dad was 76. He was the youngest of six. He graduated from Garland High School and was always proud of being a Garland Owl. He was in the Navy and a SeaBee stationed in Japan in the 50's. He was always proud to have served his country.

He and my mom had four children including Danna Smith who now lives in San Antonio, Chris who died at birth, myself, and my little sister Alys Ellis also of Santa Anna.

He worked as an executive for State Farm Insurance for over twenty years at one of their main offices on Preston Road in Dallas.

Shortly after we moved to Santa Anna he moved to The Last Frontier of Brewster County where he raised Quarter horses for Sheriff Jack McDaniel on his ranch in Alpine and South of Marathon near a place called Hell's Half-Acre. One of the last great sheriff's of Texas, Sheriff Jack was featured along with long time Coleman County Sheriff H. F. Fenton a few years ago in an issue of Texas Monthly magazine. Dad was always proud that he had worked for Sheriff Jack.

Dad married his high school sweet heart, Marian, while in Alpine and they moved back to Garland and later to Canton and would have celebrated twenty five years of marriage at the end of this month.

He was preceeded in death by his mother in 1983, his father in 1965, his sisters: Ethel, and Ruby, and his brothers: Melvin, Lester, and J.D. A memorial service is pending with the Neptune Society at the Texas National Cemetery in Grand Prairie. He had six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Please pray for me and my family as we deal with our loss.

Dad, I'll see you and Grandma in Heaven because I know you are there with her now.


Sales Tax Holiday Brings Relief to Family Budgets

(AUSTIN) — With the rising cost of gasoline, groceries and other goods, the annual clothing sales tax holiday will help families’ back-to-school budgets go farther, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today.

Combs announced that the 10th annual sales tax holiday will take place Aug. 15-17.  During the tax holiday weekend, most clothing and shoes priced less than $100 can be purchased tax free.  The tax break applies to both children’s and adults’ apparel.

“We estimate shoppers will save about $54 million in sales tax during the sales tax holiday, including approximately $42.1 million in state sales tax and $11.9 million in local sales taxes,” Combs said.

The shoppers’ gain is not expected to have a significant impact on sales tax collections.

“Though the national economy has slowed, Texas sales tax revenue continues to grow at a healthy pace,” Combs said.  “Through June, state sales tax collections for fiscal 2008 were up 6.1 percent compared to the same point in fiscal 2007.  Cities’ and counties’ calendar year-to-date sales tax revenues were up an average of 5.1 percent.”

A list of items that will be tax exempt during the sales tax holiday is available on the Comptroller’s Web site at http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/taxpubs/tx98_490/tx98_490.html.

Combs reminds families that school backpacks and messenger bags costing less than $100 are now included in the sales tax holiday, but school supplies are taxable.

Since 1999, the clothing sales tax holiday has saved shoppers more than $388 million in state and local sales taxes.


Comptroller Susan Combs Distributes $583 Million in Local Sales Tax Revenue

August 8, 2008

(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs today said the state collected $1.8 billion in sales tax revenue in July, up 10.4 percent compared to one year ago.

“Through July, fiscal 2008 state sales tax collections are up 6.5 percent,” Combs said. “The Texas economy remains strong; however, we continue to monitor the slower growth seen nationally.”

Combs sent $583.4 million in August sales tax allocations to local governments, up 9.2 percent compared to August 2007. So far this calendar year, sales tax allocations to local governments are up 6.3 percent compared to this time last year.

Combs sent sales tax payments of $393.1 million to Texas cities, up 8 percent compared to last August. Calendar year-to-date, city sales tax revenues surpass 2007 by 5.4 percent. Sales tax payments of $35.3 million went to Texas counties, 13.9 percent higher than last August. So far in calendar year 2008, county sales tax allocations are up 7.3 percent compared to last year.

In addition, $21.3 million in sales tax revenue went to 135 special purpose taxing districts, 21.5 percent more than in August 2007. Ten local transit systems received $133.5 million, up 9.9 percent compared to a year ago.

July state sales tax revenue and August allocations to local governments represent sales taxes collected in June by businesses that report sales taxes monthly, and sales taxes collected in April, May and June by quarterly filers.

For details of August sales tax payments to individual cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose districts, locate the Monthly Sales and Use Tax Allocation Comparison Summary Reports on the Comptroller’s Web site at www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/allocsum/compsum.html.

The Comptroller’s next sales tax allocation will be made on Friday, Sept. 12.

Ranger School of Vocational Nursing Capping Ceremony/Graduation

Submitted by Stephanie Dane www.wildbluephotography.com

Friday, August 8, 2008 Ranger School of Vocational Nursing held their Capping Ceremony/Graduation in Brownwood at Victory Life Church. Among this year's graduates were Coleman County's own Amber Ramon, Janna Wells, and Jamie Wade.

The ceremony was beautiful. There were two guest speakers which had moving and encouraging words for the class. The Gideons presented each nurse with a small white bible before they were capped with their nurse's cap. Each nurse was pinned and then given a white candle. The candles were lit and then the nurses recited the nurse's pledge. Pictured is each of the ladies, already "capped", as they receive their pins.

Congratulations to all the Class of 2008 graduates and good luck!


Vacation Bible School A Success!

Dawson Rambo (pictured below), of Santa Anna, is wearing his hat made by a clown as he awaits his turn in a game played at the Vacation Bible School hosted by the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Santa Anna.

The theme of the program is "Castles & Crowns", so people dressed in medieval costumes can be seen throughout the evening.

The children's activities include arts and crafts, theater, games, story time, singing and a snack. Prizes are awarded nightly in a drawing.

According to Pastor Jerry Chastain, "The program has been wonderful, with many children attending. We are enjoying seeing the kids have such a fun time while learning about Christ." The program is being held every evening this week, Monday through Friday, from 6:45 till 9:00, at the Seventh Day Adventist Church located at 142 CR 106 in Santa Anna.

This Saturday morning from 11:00 till 12:00 a special program will be given involving the children that attended during the week. Also at that time two bicycles will be given away at a drawing.

It is not too late for any child age 5 - 12 to begin attending. Registration is still open. For more information call Pastor Jerry Chastain at (325) 348-6025.


Brady's World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off

Greetings from Brady, Texas! Our 35th Annual World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off is just around the corner and we are still accepting applications for vendors in the Arts & Crafts Fair. We are always looking for new and talented people to share their craft with our attendees and would certainly love to have them join us this year. See below for more information.

In addition to the cook-off and the arts and crafts fair, we will have a 5K fun run, plenty of children's games, a 4-H rodeo, and live Texas music featuring Kevin Seale, Radney Foster and Brandon Rhyder.

Calling Arts & Crafts Vendors

Plans for the 35th Annual World Championship Barbeque Goat Cook-Off and Arts & Crafts Fair are underway in Brady, Texas. The Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce would like to invite all vendors to be a part of the 35th Anniversary of the event on Labor Day weekend. The fair is Saturday, August 30th from 9 am to 5 PM.

Limited booth space remains and the entry fee is $100 per booth. The booth spaces are 10’ x 10’ in the open-air or 8’ x 10’ under a covered pavilion. There is a $5.00 fee for electricity if needed and access to it is limited. Entries are handled on a first come first served basis with an entry deadline of August 15th, 2008.

This is a great fair due to its built-in audience with 150 cooking teams at the cook-off and the family, friends and fans who come with them from far and wide. The fair also draws a great crowd because of its reputation with an estimated attendance of 6,000 throughout the day.

About the World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off: What began in 1973 as a small fundraiser for the local Jaycees with 16 cooking teams, Brady’s Goat Cook-Off is the longest running of its kind in Texas with 150 team entries each year. There are approximately 20,000 goats in McCulloch County and it ranks among the top 20 counties in the nation for goat production. Goats are a $2 million industry in our area.

For more information or to obtain an entry form, please contact the Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce at 325-597-3491 or chamber@bradytx.us.


Santa Anna Reading Club

Submitted by Tex Wright:

Each year the Texas State Library recommends a theme for the years reading program in libraries across the state. The theme this year was history.

The Santa Anna library board members and other volunteers then chose a theme for their program, tying it to the state recommendations. History being the state theme, the Santa Anna Library chose the Santa Anna Library as the base of their program. The Santa Anna Library is 101 years old, started in 1907 with a few books on a shelf in a doctor’s office.

The boys and girls spent the month of July (every Thursday) in time travel. They saw, through pictures, stories, and actual games, the years pass by and watched Santa Anna and its library grow and progress with the rest of the world. They saw clothes from the flapper era, the depression era, the 50’s, and on to the present. They played with jacks, rolled hoops, yoyos, tops, paper dolls and other toys that represented the past years of childhood. Also presented were forms of transportation and homes.

The first week (the first twenty years) the boys and girls tried washing with a tub and rub board. Then found that the dryer was line strung between two poles and the wash held in place with wooden clothes pins.

They read books like McGuffeys Reader, Peter Rabbit, and the Wright Bros. Story.

The second week brought the 20’s into view with a full dressed flapper girl, the model “T”, Raggedy Ann dolls, china and paper dolls. This period of time also brought the depression era.

Noted were the home made toys like kites, paper dolls and other hand crafted toys.

The 50’s era were represented with girls in a poodle skirt with many petticoats and rolled up cuffs for the guys. Toys from that era were Hula Hoops, Frisbees, stick horses, and other toys that were popular in this era.

The last location was celebrated with a big party. In this era the computer had become a necessity to the new generation and a way of life for all. The boys and girls, adult and junior leaders and guests made a trip to the Santa Anna Computer lab which is part of the library system. Mr. Wright explained the advantages of the lab while they were there. Returning to the library, the boys and girls made toy airplanes, tops, yoyos, and recycled milk jugs into decorated watering cans. Every boy and girl attending on the last day received a book to take home, a certificate for a pretzel from Huddle Arcade of Coleman, and a certificate for an ice cream from the Santa Anna Dairy Queen.

On the last day of the 2008 program, prizes were awarded to all according to their age group and the books read during the month.

Special prizes were awarded by a drawing. These prizes were two oysters brought from Hawaii and donated for this purpose. The young ladies whose names were drawn were Madison Wise and Sudie Puckett. Each of these young ladies were photographed holding the pearls taken from the oysters.

Total readers enrolled for the program were 42 boys and girls. A special thanks to the 5 boys and girls who served as junior leaders, helping with games, registration, checking in and out of the books and other needs and to the 10 adult volunteers who planned and supervised the program this year.

We cannot leave out the very important work done by our librarians, Ovella Williams and Yvonne Holman. We sure do appreciate the work you do and the help you give.

And the Look at Coleman County Last 150 Years Moves On
Next Stop Burkett, Texas

News from the Coleman County Historical Commission...Submitted by Tex Wright:

At our last program held in Trickham, Texas, some 50 people heard Felton Martin tell the story and stories about Trickham, the Cheatham store, the tombs in the middle of the street, and other things of interest about this original Coleman County town.

We learned that settlers had settled in the area and started ranching and farming in the 1840’s. Records show that when Camp Colorado was placed on the Colorado River, they purchased their hay and grain from farmers and ranchers already settled in the area. W

e had many descendents of area settlers, two of them descending from Cheatham of the original store, attending, asking questions, and telling stories that they had heard.

Thanks Felton for an excellent program.

Our next program, Aug. 7, 2008, will be held in Burkett. Sue Frizzell will present the program in the Burkett Community Center.

Directions to get you to the Community Center:
Coming from Coleman - Hwy 206 to Burkett, come into town across the old bridge (remember its one lane traffic) into town to Post Office turn right between the Burkett Fire Dept. and the Burkett Post Office. Community Center is on the left second place down. Just look for a lot of cars. (It’s the old Methodist Church)

Refreshments will be ready about 6:30PM and the program will start about 7:00 PM.

Linda Brady will give a short history of the community of Burkett. Then "Dad" Bloodworth and Grady Harris, both ‘old timers’ in the area will give a rundown on events and happenings of Burkett past. Roy Dean Young, another of the ‘old timers’ will tell some of the area history. He was a student in the Live Oak school near Webville. He will probably mention the old wooden bridge that had to be crossed to get to Webb’s Store. Remember, all this takes place on Thursday, Aug. 7th, starting about 6:30PM at the Burkett Burkett Community Center.
