PA(;E 4B - The Malakoff News - Wednesday, May 2, 2001 SALOME&apos;S STARS ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relationships on the job and/or at home are stronger, thanks to your ef- forts to shore up the weak spots. An unexpected visitor arrives with surprising but welcome news. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A favorite hobby could turn into a profitTmak- ing venture. For a Taurean, that could be sculpting, mak- ing vases or even creating baked specialties. Look into it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Yours might be the sign of the Twins, but you still need to be wary of double-talk coming from someone who is trying to avoid having you uncover his or her true motives. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone who has owed you an apology for a long time suddenly comes through with it. Accept it graciously, even if you don't feel like resuming a friendly relationship. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might feel things are going too slowly, but resist the urge to let loose a Leo- nine roar at those you believe are holding you back. In- stead, use some gentle pUrrrIT-Suasion, Kitty Cat. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might feel you were not treated right during a recent work- place shift. But be patient. Things are still in a state of flux, and another change might be in the offing. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might want to consider consulting with an expert before you in- vest money and time in a venture that could hold g0me unforeseen and potentially perilous pitfalls. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Travel aspects are strong, making this a good time to finalize vacation plans. A family situ- ation that had been worri- some has now taken a turn for the better. SAGITTARIUS (No- vember 22 to December 21) Your Archer's arrow is well and truly aimed, but are you sure about the target you've set-up? You might want to take another look at your plans before acting on them. CAPRICORN (Decem- ber 22 to January 19) It's a good time to make plans to get away for some much- needed fun and relaxation. A cruise (you are the Sea Goat, of course) would be a great way to go. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You're going to have to deal with Some changes, even though you'd rather accept things just as they are. But it all turns out for the best. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might need to step away from a difficult situation so that you can get a better perspective on how to handle it. Good advice might come from a most-un- expected source. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a keen sense of business.

I was behind the move to get a gymnasium for the elemen- tary students which has served us well. We still need to do some remodeling, es- pecially with some of the roofs." He added that there are drainage problems to work on and parking areas to improve. Billy Ray has concerns about keeping quality teach- ers on board. He said, "We need more incentives to keep these people. We need to work on keeping morale high. Not everyone likes to teach in a small school, and when we get good teachers, we need to keep them." "I am proud to be a gradu- ate of TISD and really proud to have had the opportunity to serve on the school board. I am proud too of our many accomplishments," Billy Ray added. He is married to Linda Lowrie of Mabank, and the couple has two grown daughters, Raeshaun, 24, and LaMia, 20. They too, are TISD graduates. For 17 years Billy worked for TU before getting injured. He enjoys yardwork and gar- dening and working with his church-. Richard Martin runs for the Trinidad ISD School Board because he wants to make a difference. He has 13 years of former experi- ence that he sees as a plus if he is elected. Richard has two concerns about Trinidad ISD. First, are the students. He said, "I want them to have the opportunity to achieve their highest poten- tial. Then, second, I want the teaching staff and admin- istrators to possess the at- mosphere, tools, and attitude needed to educate the stu- dents they teach." "We need always to be on the cutting edge of improvement and be able to adjust to, all the changes that come along," added Richard. Richard sees public support as a "must" in a successfully run school. First, he hopes the public will get out and vote and then be supportive of the men and women elected. In 1974 Ri- chard graduated from South Garland High. Then he at- tended HCJC (TVCC now) on an athletic scholarship. When he married the former Sharon McElroy of Trinidad, he decided Trinidad would be a nice place to live. He and Sharon have two sons, Jeffery, 22, a student at TVCC and part-time em- ployee with Brookshires, and Justin "Judde", 17, a junior at THS. Currently, Judde is a member of the baseball team. Richard works for Owens Corning in Tucker between Oakwood and Pal- estine. Any spare time finds the family hunting or fishing.

Their children were Helen, Estelle, Reba, James (Jim), and Ann. Banks Bradley's siblings included Cora, Dolly, John and Byron. Bank's sister Cora married a Jackson whose children were Byron, Dessie, Claude, and Lola. Byron then married Leona. Children born to this union were Gene, Claude, Virginia Lee (Doll), Andrew, and Susan. One of Byron Bradley's sons, Marvin, the young- est, I think, is the father of Bill Bradley of Tyler.

In buying books for the Trinidad Library in memory of an ex-student; especially at the high school level, reference' books that cannot be checked tout are sug- gested. : This type book includes a medicaldictionary, an atlas, a history of Texas or history of another subject or place, a career guide- type book, a reference book of some kind that is not a standard encyclope- dia. School libraries have the general sets of ency. clopedias. The school, li- brarian also has a selec, tive list to order books from. Give heracall:, Arnolds and the VFD ContinuedJ00om page 9A and the City had to pay our utilities." Arthur went to work to make up-to-date changes that would bring in revenue from more citi- zens. According to Arthur, the fund raisers, such as hamburger suppers, cost more to set up than the event brought in. Most of the fires the de- partment responded to were north of town which then was not all part of Trinidad. "We went to help out our neighbors," said Arthur. For at least two years with the help of others, es- pecially the late AI Zekar from north of town, Arthur worked to develop a Rural Fire District which levies a tax on property and builds a fund with which a VFD can operate from. To secure a Rural Fire District program is quite complicated. Arthur gave hours to convincing people, that for their ,,,"n "-:" .... , ot.l.t t, this was the bet rottte to take to be up to date in fire fighting. Public hearings had to be held, information collected and sent to the proper authorties, and then a vote had to be held. The vote passed, setting up a .03 tax on every $100 evaluation of an owner's property. "We pay our bills at the depart- ment now, and we are able to have three stations," said Arthur. Donations are still acceptable and appreci- ated. The main fire station is on Front Street in downtown Trinidad. Then there is a substation near the Trinidad school and one in Key Ranch. Two trucks sit in each station. For awhile a group near the lake had its own fire station but soon found it too difficult to maintain. This station was sold to the Trinidad VFD along with the equipment in it. Nelda thoroughly enjoys the training, the experi- ences, and the actual fight- ing of fires involved with the department. She says the area here has been lucky with few structural fires. In February there was a structural fire in town. Luckily,. calls like this occur orily about once a year. "We get more medical calls than any- thingmaybe 15 or 16 a month or more," said Nold In the mornings Nelda can be found working at the Jiffy Mart on Highway 31. Nelda and Arthur have two grown daughters. Linda Annett Arnold lives in Dallas, and Rosemary and her hus- band live in Granbury. One more interest for Arthur and Nelda is their herd of cows on acreage on the Leagueline Road. But the Trinidad VFD ranks No. 1 with them.
