RHS Exes Return This Weekend for Homecoming 2013

Most exes went to the old high school building used from 1938 to 2010.
Roscoe High School exes will be coming from far and wide this weekend to renew acquaintances and friendships with old classmates they once knew well and saw on a daily basis.  There will be plenty of things to see and do as they do so: a bonfire, a football game, school tours, coffees, lunches, door prizes, a library dedication, a downtown parade, an exes’ basketball game, and live music from exes’ bands.  There will also be several class reunion parties at various locales.  A large crowd is expected since the homecomings are held only once every three years, the last being in 2010.

The bonfire east of FM 608 in north Roscoe will kick off the celebration tomorrow evening at 7:30.  Then on Friday afternoon, after a reception for exes in the high school’s AVID room, there will be a pep rally in the gym and a baked potato supper in the cafetorium, followed by the football game with Baird and the halftime crowning of the football and band sweethearts along with their beaus. 

After the game, some will convene for coffee in the cafetorium while others move to the Lumberyard downtown, where three different exes’ bands will provide the entertainment until midnight.  Chris Baker (’04) will open at 9pm; at 10:30 Leslie Huff (’73) of the band Duck Soup will play with his old classmates, Gordon Miles (’74), Kenny Zimmerman (’74) and Billie Joe Jay (’71); and at 11:00 it will be Lyndall Underwood (’79) of the Dusty Creek Band.

On Saturday morning, coffee and donuts will be served at the “meet and greet” in the cafetorium.  Students will be on hand to lead guided tours of the new classrooms and facilities, door prizes and exes awards will be given, and the Plowbots, the school’s robotics team, will demonstrate their skill with robots.  The Ratliff Elementary Library will also be dedicated.

An enchilada lunch will be served in the cafetorium from 11:30-1:30, and the Roscoe Historical Museum downtown will open at 2:00.  The Homecoming Parade down Broadway will be at 3:00pm, and the Exes’ Guys & Gals basketball game will follow at 5:00pm in the Special Events Center.

Later, downtown at the Lumberyard, exes can demonstrate their vocal skills with the “open mike” session that starts at 8:00pm.  Then at 9:30 Whiskey Flats (Tyler Moses ’10 and Jared Porter ’07) will take the stage, followed at 11:00 by the Blackland Bullet Company (Toby Young ’98 and Jady Underwood ’98).

The official groundbreaking for the Young Farm Estates will be celebrated next Tuesday, October 1, at 6:00pm on the property’s location in north Roscoe, just east of FM 608 and south of US 84.  It will mark the beginning of Nolan County’s first major housing development in forty years. 

Phase 1 of the project consists of the development and sale of seventy lots, ranging from 1500 to 2200 square feet each.  All utilities will be underground.  Concrete curbs and gutters, asphalt roads, and a nice entrance are features of the subdivision.

Everyone is invited to this historic event for Roscoe, Nolan County, and the Tri-County area.  Free food and drinks will follow the ceremony.  For more information, call 325-766-3319.



Traffic crawls past wrecked vehicles on I-20 west Thursday morning.
For the third week in a row there has been a wreck at “Destruction Junction” just east of Roscoe.  The most recent one occurred on Thursday morning on I-20 west when a maroon pickup pulling a white hatchback lost control on a wet road as it approached the US 84 bridge.

The pickup struck the guard rail, which completely went through the pickup’s back seat.  Both the driver and passenger were taken to Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital and hospitalized. 

Construction workers working on the bridge stopped to help first responders right after the crash, and the Roscoe Volunteer Fire Department also helped out, along with others.

Folks, here’s a word of warning—the curve just before the underpass on I-20 west is dangerous when wet.  Since last September, there have been two fatal truck wrecks in addition to this nonfatal one, and all occurred as drivers lost control at the curve when the road surface was wet.  So, always slow down when approaching the underpass in rainy conditions—or better yet, take the US 84 exit just before that, and come into Roscoe that way.  



The nominees for Football Sweetheart and Beau and Band Sweetheart and Beau at the Homecoming Court have been named.  They will all appear during halftime of Friday evening’s football game, where the winners will be named.

Football Sweetheart nominees are Eva Aguayo, escorted by Dillon Freeman; Shelby Brown, escorted by Zachary Longoria; Ashton Payne, escorted by Jesus Leanos; and Whitney Williams, escorted by Shelton Toliver.  The escorts are also nominees for Football Beau.

Band Sweetheart nominees are Jacinda Cedillo, escorted by Tito Arce; Danielle Dean, escorted by Juan Sanchez; and Korie Rogers, escorted by Antonio Gallegos.  The escorts are the nominees for Band Beau.

Flower Bearers are Dakota Freeman and Emeril Talamantez, and Crown Bearers are Jace Arnwine and Calum Underwood.



This article appeared in the September 23 Reporter-News.
Sportswriter Evan Ren interviewed Roscoe’s new head football coach, Jake Freeman, in this week’s “Big Country Q & A” series, and the article, entitled "Back where it all started," was published in the sports section of Monday’s Abilene Reporter-News

I have not been able to access the article on the Internet, but the video of the interview done on August 28 may be available here.  



Rain fell on Thursday and Friday with about three-quarters of an inch total for the two days in most places around Roscoe.  Champion got a little more, about an inch, but that was no surprise as that area has been getting more precipitation than everywhere else all year long.

Autumn officially arrived on Sunday, and the weather has responded appropriately with cooler temperatures, especially at night and in the early morning.  Highs have been in the upper eighties with lows in the upper fifties.

The outlook is for more of the same today and slightly hotter tomorrow with a high just over ninety and a low in the mid-sixties.  Friday should be a little cooler than that, and on Saturday there is a 50% chance of rain.  If we do get a shower, let’s hope it doesn’t happen during the Homecoming Parade.


Graveside rites for Larry Don McBurnett, 72, of Bryan were held at the Roscoe Cemetery on Monday at 1:00pm, following funeral services at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Bryan.  He died on Tuesday, September 17, at Bravos Valley Hospice. 

He was born in Roscoe on July 9, 1941, to John Byron McBurnett and Oletha Bell McBurnett. He graduated from Roscoe High in 1959 and then attended nursing school at Methodist Hospital of Nursing in Lubbock. After getting his nursing licenses, he joined the Army in 1965 and received his CRNA license at the Presidio School of CRNA in San Francisco. 

He served in Vietnam and then moved to Bryan in 1971, where he joined the Bryan Anesthesia Group. He worked in several Brazos Valley Hospitals including St Joseph, Humana, which became the MED, and others. He was a member of the Westminster Presbyteriian Church. He enjoyed scuba diving and Aggie football and was a member of the 12th man foundation.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, John Byron and Oletha Bell McBurnett; brother Johnny B McBurnett; sister Jo Alice McBurnett Langston; nephews Dorn and Dana Langston and Arnie McBurnett.

Survivors include his son, Corbin McBurnett of Albuquerque NM; daughter, Kelli McBurnett of Hobbs NM; sisters, Jeannie McBurnett of Bryan and Sandra Hunt of Big Spring; and granddaughter, Alyssa Renee McBurnett of Albuquerque NM.

Pallbearers at Roscoe were John Strother, Bobby Berry, Jay T. Soules, Edwin Duncan, Clifford Burnett and Larry Cornoyer.

Donations may be made to Bravos Valley Hospice and Davita Dialysis in College Station.

Plowboys Fall to Miles 19-0

Vincent Pantoja (30) carries the ball against Miles.
The Roscoe Plowboys just couldn’t get it together Friday night against Miles and wound up with a big goose egg on the scoreboard, losing by a score of 19-0.  The Plowboys never seemed to get into a rhythm.  They missed assignments, dropped passes, and never got the ball to bounce their way.  Their quarterback, Cutter Davila, suffered a separated shoulder in the third quarter and tried to continue, but was replaced by Rafael Aguayo, who came in and did a good job as a replacement.

Still it just wasn’t the Plowboys’ night.  The Bulldogs, who were celebrating their homecoming, scored in each of the first three quarters.  Their first touchdown was a 13-yard pass from Shelton Hohensee to Travis Fischer.  The kick was good, and Miles had a 7-0 lead.  In the second quarter Hohensee hit Cody Kruger with a pass that went for 62 yards and another score.  The kick was no good, and the score at halftime was 13-0. Then, in the third quarter, the scoring for the night was concluded when Hohensee hit Kyle Fischer with a 5-yard touchdown pass.

For the night, Vincent Pantoja has 11 rushes for 66 yards, Cutter Davila had 8 for 38 yards, and Rafael Aguayo had 8 for 25 yards.  Davila completed 7 of 24 passes for 67 yards with one interception, while Aguayo had 5 completions for 7 attempts and 54 yards with no interceptions.  Shelton Toliver had 5 completions for 64 yards, Kevin Lavalais had 4 for 32, Aguayo 2 for 23, and Dillon Freemen 1 for 15 yards.

Roscoe is now 1-2 on the year.  They have an open date this Friday and are preparing for the Baird Bears, who will come to town next Friday night to play at Roscoe’s homecoming.  It will be their first district game.



Carl Childers speaks to the Nolan County Board of Realtors.
Plans for the Young Farm Estates, the new housing development in north Roscoe, were presented to the Nolan County Board of Realtors at their monthly meeting at the Sweetwater Country Club last Thursday.  The addition will be the first major subdivision in Nolan County for over forty years.

Owner and developer Carl Childers, a grandson of the late Dr. J. W. Young, explained Phase 1 of the development, which will involve the sale of seventy lots served by two streets and two shorter lanes just east of FM 608.  Lots will be either 110’ x 66’ or 110’ x 97.5’ depending on location and will cost between $14,000 and $16,000 each.  Buyers who want a larger space may buy adjacent lots.  The sale of lots will begin sometime in October.

Childers also explained several features of the development, among them deed restrictions that insure the quality and appearance of the subdivision, asphalt roads, concrete curbs and gutters, and a landscaped entrance.

He said that bids for construction of water, sewer, and electricity lines, all underground, will be opened tomorrow, September 19, with work to begin on shortly thereafter.  He also announced plans for the official ground-breaking ceremony, which will be at 6:00pm on Tuesday, October 1, at the Young Farm Estates, just off FM 608 north of downtown Roscoe.

City Manager Cody Thompson spoke to the realtors about recent and imminent improvements in the City of Roscoe, citing the new reverse-osmosis water treatment plant, scheduled to be online by next July or August, along with other improvements in the city’s water and sewer lines, including the new lift station that will serve the housing development as well as the rest of north Roscoe.  He also mentioned the advantages offered by the Roscoe school system, its collegiate program, and the coming new $3.5 million STEM research center.



The Fall Festival, Roscoe Elementary School’s biggest fundraiser of the year, will be held this Friday evening, September 20, from 6:00-8:00pm. 

This year for the first time, the Festival will be outside on the playground just south of the Elementary School, weather permitting.  This includes the hot dog supper, the games, and even the bingo.  There will also be a bounce house for the kids. 

Instead of using tickets as in the past, this year guests will instead purchase punch cards of $5, $10, or $20.  The punch cards and hot dog vouchers may be purchased in advance or at the festival. 

All proceeds go to the ABC Fund, which is used to purchase rewards and incentives for good behavior and hard work.  So bring your students and an open wallet.  The kids really have fun at the festival, and the money goes back to them in the long run.



The Purple Passion Beauty Salon
The Purple Passion Beauty Salon on 205 Main Street celebrated its recent opening with a ribbon cutting on Monday morning.  Cookies and other sweets were served along with drinks.  The salon is owned and run by Misty Reynolds.  The phone number is 325-766-3337.

Plowboy Center Lodge
That ribbon cutting was immediately followed by another one at the Plowboy Center Lodge on 1000 Broadway, where guests were invited to tour the new facilities.  Hot dogs, chips, and drinks were served.  The Plowboy Center Lodge is owned and operated by Tom and Max Watt.  The phone number is 575-799-0812.



A westbound 18-wheeler carrying a load of cantaloupes Sunday afternoon failed to make the curve at the US 84 overpass east of Roscoe and turned over on its side. It came to a stop in the middle of I-20 west, blocking both lanes for a couple of hours and causing traffic delays in both directions of US 84 as well as I-20 west.

The driver of the truck escaped without injury.



Nice clouds in the western sky yesterday, but no rain.
It rained on Monday with more falling around Champion and other areas south of town.  The Champion area got between three-quarters of an inch and an inch with some reports of even more, and Lake Trammell got .7”.  Here in town and north and northwest of town only about a quarter of an inch fell.  Yesterday, it clouded up again and there was some thunder in the afternoon, but the cloud moved north and only a sprinkle fell here. 

The latter part of last week and the weekend saw sunny weather with partly cloudy skies, south winds, and highs in the low nineties with lows of around 70°F.

Today should see a return to sunshine with a high of about 90° and a low tomorrow morning in the upper sixties.  Tomorrow and Friday bring a 50% chance of precipitation, so we may get that September rain after all. 

Temperatures through the weekend will be in the mid to upper eighties for the highs and mid to upper sixties for the lows.



Funeral services for Wilma Floy Stanley, 86, were held at the Roscoe Church of Christ at 10:00am on Saturday, September 14, followed by interment in the Roscoe Cemetery.  She passed away on September 12.

She was born on April 4, 1927, in Cole County, Oklahoma. On January 18, 1946, she married Don Stanley in Hawthorne, California. Wilma came to Roscoe in 1977 and was a Nurse’s Aide for many years. She was a member of Roscoe Church of Christ.

Survivors include her daughter, Cathy Stanley of Roscoe; her son, Larry T. Stanley and his wife, Laurie, of Richardson; four grandchildren: Justin Stanley, Nicholas Stanley, Bryan Beckman and his wife, Ashley, Jamie Cronian and husband, Scott; and two great-grandchildren: Gage Beckman and Alli Cronian.

Wilma was preceded in death by her husband, Don, on December 2, 2005, her son, Gary Don Stanley, on January 1, 1947, and her parents, Sherman and Gerthie Smith.

Pallbearers were Shane Summerlin, Shane Parker, Danny Allred, Jason Freeman, Ronnie Helm and Tom Griffith.



We have just learned that Larry McBurnett of Bryan, who was born and raised in Roscoe and a member of the RHS Class of '59, passed away in a Bryan hospital last night after an extended illness.

Information concerning his funeral has not yet been made available.  I will post more as soon as I learn it.

Plowboys Cruise Past Irion County 45-26

The Plowboy offense was too much for Irion County last Friday night.
What a difference a year makes.  In their second game last year, the Plowboys were served up as homecoming fodder for Irion County.  It was a game in which the Hornets scored two TDs in their first three offensive plays and went on to lead at halftime 34-0.  The final score was 40-0. 

So one can’t really blame Irion County fans if they came into Roscoe Friday night expecting another easy victory, especially since the Plowboys were 0-1 and the Hornets were 1-0 after taking down Roby.  They also had their main offensive weapons returning from last year, Dontae Harris and Reb Sullenger. 

But this year’s Plowboys are not the same as last year.  Under new coaches Jake Freeman and Greg Althof, there’s not only a new look to the team, especially on offense, but also a revived enthusiasm and better play.   

Using a wide-open offense in which the run was almost an afterthought, the Plowboys amassed 39 points in the first half and coasted to victory by a final score of 45-26.  Cutter Davila completed 22 of 49 passes for 6 touchdowns along with 3 interceptions, and Shelton Toliver had a big night on the receiving end, catching 10 passes for 196 yards and 4 TDs.  Vincent Pantoja had two touchdowns and Jesus Leanos one.

Roscoe opened the scoring with a 3-yard run by Pantoja, but the Hornets came right back with a hook-and-ladder play that resulted in Harris racing 66 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. The kick for extra point was no good, however, and Roscoe kept the lead at 7-6.

The Plowboys went up 13-6 when Davila hit Pantoja for an 8-yard score, but Irion County made it 13-12 when Gomez intercepted a Davila pass and ran it back 59 yards. 

Then it was all Roscoe as the Plowboys scored 20 unanswered points on touchdown passes of 65 and 12 yards from Davila to Toliver, and 10 yards to Jesus Leanos.  Irion County closed the gap to 33-20 on a 1-yard Gomez plunge, but the Plowboys responded with another Davila scoring pass to Toliver just before the half, this one for 27 yards.  The Plowboys led at halftime 39-20.

Both sides scored a TD in the third quarter, Roscoe’s on a 32-yard pass to Toliver, and both were scoreless in the fourth. 

Overall, the Plowboys are showing significant progress, but there is still much room for improvement on both sides of the ball.

This Friday Roscoe goes to Miles to play the Bulldogs, who have chosen the Plowboys for their homecoming game.  Miles is 0-2 after falling to Reagan County 20-7 and Quanah 44-12.

The Plowboy JV team will host the Miles JV at Plowboy Field tomorrow evening with kickoff at 6:30pm.  Last week they defeated the Irion County JV in Mertzon 30-6.

The Plowboy Boosters will be decorating cars free of charge on Friday, September 13, from 4:30-5:30pm at the Plowboy Center Lodge and/or the Community Center at 1002 Broadway. 

So, if you’re going to the game in Miles, let your vehicle show your Plowboy spirit!  For more information, phone Max Watt at 575-799-0812.



At its monthly meeting in City Hall last night, the Roscoe City Council held its final public hearing on the Texas Community Development Block Grant for the new lift station on the City’s north side.  Some 90% of the $250,000+ lift station, which upgrades the sewer system for north Roscoe, is being funded by the State, while the rest, about $28,000-$29,000, will be covered by the City.  As a separate item, the Council also approved the project completion report for the lift station and other wastewater collection system improvements.

The Council also held the first of two public hearings on the City’s property tax rate increase for the coming year.  Although the tax rate changes must be called an increase by law, individual properties may either increase or decrease depending on their assessed value.  The actual tax rate for 2014 will be down slightly, from $.925784 per $100 of taxable value in 2013 to either $.802985 or $.846558 per $100 in 2014.  The percentage decrease, however, will be more than offset by the rise in property assessments. 

The average taxable value of a residence homestead in 2013 was $39,331.  In 2014, the average taxable value will rise to $41,197.  Thus, with the coming year’s proposed tax rate of $.802985, the tax for the average home would be $330.81.  With a tax rate of $.846558 it would be $348.76.  Neither amount is as great as 2013’s average tax amount of $364.12.

A second public hearing on this issue will be held in City Hall on Monday, September 16, at 7:00pm.  Citizens are encouraged to attend the hearing and express their views.  For more information, call City Hall at 325-766-3871.

City Manager Cody Thompson also informed the Council that the contractors have begun work on the SCADA, the computer-controlled system that monitors and controls the water wells and water pressure.  It should be completed within the next sixty days.  Work on the reverse-osmosis water treatment plan has also been initiated, equipment is being ordered, and work on it should be done in 300 days.  The target date for the plant to be up and running is next July or August.



A collision of two pickups east of Roscoe at the intersection of old Highway 80 and Blackland Road resulted in the injury of three local residents, Dan and Melinda Pulattie of 1008 Oak Street, and Navada Evert, who lives at 7th and Cypress. 

The wreck occurred at about 6pm on Friday.  Dan Pulattie, who was thrown from his pickup, was airlifted from the scene by a Native Air helicopter, and the two women were taken to Rolling Plains Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.



There was also a one-vehicle wreck on Thursday evening at “Destruction Junction,” which is what locals call the area near the overpass east of town where US 84 and I-20 merge.  

An unnamed man on a motorcycle was traveling east on US 84 and misjudged the speed at which he could take the detour onto I-20 west.  He was unable to maintain control of his motorcycle, which overturned.  He was airlifted from the scene by helicopter. 



At 9:30 a.m. Monday, September 16, there will be a ribbon cutting for Purple Passion Beauty Salon at 201 Main Street. 

Afterwards, the event will move to the Plowboy Center Lodge located at 1002 Broadway.  Following the ribbon cutting, all are invited to a tour of the Lodge’s vacant units until 1:00pm.  Free hot dogs and cokes will also be served for as long as they last. 

Everyone is invited to welcome these new businesses in town.



Hopes were raised yesterday when the weather cooled, potential rain clouds appeared, and forecasters announced a 30% chance of precipitation.  Nothing happened, however, and the Roscoe area had another week of late summer weather. 

High temperatures reached the mid nineties in the latter part of the week and weekend but cooled to a high of 90°F on Monday and only 85° yesterday.  Lows ranged from the mid-seventies to the upper sixties.  Skies were clear to partly cloudy, and winds were generally from the south.

The forecast is for more of the same with highs of around ninety and lows in the upper sixties.  There is a 20% chance of rain today but none again until Monday, when there will also be a 20% chance.

Plowboys Play Well But Fall to De Leon 34-21

Shelton Toliver (10) makes one of his 17 catches against De Leon.
People who saw the game in De Leon on Friday night generally came away encouraged about the way the Plowboys played, despite the fact that they lost 35-21.  The Plowboys had their work cut out for them because De Leon is a good team, picked by many to win their district, and were bigger and more experienced.

The Plowboys scored first and went up 7-0, but De Leon came right back to tie the game with a touchdown of their own.  Then Roscoe scored again to go up 14-7, but De Leon again tied it and then went up 21-14.  Right before halftime the Plowboys drove deep into Bearcat territory, but the game was halted for some time when a referee was knocked cold after getting tangled up in a play and being struck in the head by a helmet.  When play resumed, the Plowboys had lost momentum and failed to score, and the halftime score was 21-14. 

In the second half, the Bearcats tacked on 13 more points to the Plowboys 7, but the Plowboys continued to move the ball consistently on offense to the end of the game.  They had two potential scoring drives halted by costly turnovers, both deep in De Leon territory.  One was a fumble on the 2-yard line, and the other was a pass intercepted in the end zone.  

For the game, Cutter Davila completed 36 of 45 passes for 389 yards and ran for a touchdown, while Shelton Toliver had 17 receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown.  Kevin Lavalais had 5 receptions for 115 yards and the other Plowboy TD.  Jesus Leanos had 6 receptions for 78 yards.

The Plowboys hope to even their record when they take on Irion County at Plowboy Field Friday night.  Kickoff is at 7:30pm.



The Plowboy Junior Varsity started the season with a big 44-12 win over the Early JV at Plowboy Field last Thursday.  Brayden Beal scored four touchdowns with runs of 59, 46, 8, and 3 yards while passing for two more, one to Juan Solis and the other to Roman Acuna.  He also had an interception, and so did Gage White. 

The JV’s next opponent will be Irion County in Mertzon tomorrow.  Kickoff is at 6:00pm.



The Roscoe Collegiate ISD invites everyone to its 2013 Open House next Tuesday, September 10, from 6:00-8:00pm.  The event will begin with a brief general assembly in the Special Events Center and then move to classrooms or the Cafetorium.  

In conjunction with the Open House, there will also be a $5 Brisket Taco Supper from 6:30-7:30 to help fund the school’s 4H program, which is being extended this year from grades 3-6 to grades 3-8.  Donations will also be accepted. 

The in-school 4H program will also be extended to after school, and part-time volunteers are needed.  There will be a sign-up sheet at the Open House.  For more information, contact Early College/STEM Director Jacob Tiemann or Elementary Principal Andy Wilson.



Mel Tillis at the Lumberyard on Friday night.
Country music legend Mel Tillis and his band, the Statesiders, once again played to a packed house at the Lumberyard last Friday night to a crowd estimated at about 1200. 

The show was greeted with enthusiasm, and Tillis put on another great performance, one that showed that even though he is 81 years old, he still is full of fun and energy.  After the show, he hung around for a long time to autograph guitars, hats, and CDs and to have his picture taken with anyone who wanted it.



A pre-construction planning meeting will be held by the City of Roscoe with Associated Construction Partners of Boerne and with subcontractors to set up a timeline for construction of the reverse-osmosis water treatment plant, the SCADA system, and City water-line improvements.  

The meeting begins at 2:00pm at City Hall and is open to the public.  For more information, call 325-766-3871.



Bonfire pole on Young Farm Estates in North Roscoe.
This 30-foot pole will be the centerpiece for the Homecoming bonfire on Thursday, September 26, and locals are invited to contribute wood and other 100% combustible materials.  There should be no metals, plastics, or other non-combustibles placed there. 

The bonfire is located just off the new caliche road on the north side of town just east of FM 608 about a block beyond where FM 608 forks off Business US 84 after crossing the railroad tracks.



Once again, the weather has been typical and unremarkable for this time of yeararkable.  The weekend was hot with highs of 99°F and lows of 77° on both Saturday and Sunday.  A mild cold front came through on Monday, dropping the high down to 92°, but it was back up to 95° yesterday.  Skies were sunny and clear all week with only a few clouds. 

The outlook for the rest of the week is for more of the same with sunny or mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid to upper nineties with lows of around seventy.  There is no rain in the forecast.
