PACE 8A - The MalakoffNews - Wednesday, October 31, 2001 Trinidad News By chance, ,family; by choice, friends! (L to R) Bryn Boyd, Jasey Spivey, Brendon Stewart, Bran- don "Bubba" Boyd, tlaley Stewart, Kaylee Callahan. By Emily G. Lundy Throughout the history of Trinidad, certain last names have dominated the scene: Bradley, Johnston, Jackson, Stanfield, Legg, McDonald, Airheart, and the Air hearts continue to keep a tight rein on the numbers of delegates in the community. However, the Warrens be- lieve they have a claim to fame. Presently six cousins of the Warren family attend Trinidad ISD; hopefully, all six will be in high school at the same time with more cousins in the lower grades to keep the Warren name in the corn- puter as ,the years progress. Kristi Boyd, the daughter of Frieda and Larry Jones of Trinidad, said, "Through my life I've heard many people jokingly remark that Trinidad is nothing but Airhearts and Warrens. There are a heck of a lot of those Airhearts! I'm rather fond of them. Then I got to thinking about just how many Warrens there are, I think we're running the Airhearts a tight race.

The basic family began around 68 years ago when Henry Franklin Warren, "Papa," married Edna Lucille Russell, "Mimi." He was 18; family grew to include ten grandchildren. Then came 17 great-grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren with most certainly many more to come. For unexPlainable rea- sons, many more have joined the family by marriage, mak- ing quite a family ! "Papa," better known as Pug to Trinidad folks, had the Mimi was 14.

Lundy It has taken me all this week to recover from the home- coming events of last week. I tried to do too much and forgot my age. The Method- ist minister, Elizabeth Bear, said. she had never seen "anything like it." I tell foreigners to Trinidad all the time about our homecoming weekend. It can really be wholesome fun, and a win for the football team caps it all. (Thanks to all those who slipped in extra food at the Sunday dinner to feed the masses.) How nice has the weather been. "I dare not predict the winter though, not around here. We seem to have our own seasons in this area of the state. You may want to add to this prayer list of concern for people we know or who someone else knows: Doug Gunnels, Virg!l Phillips, Bennie Miller, Ballou Hines, Betty Tate, Sharon Hoskins, Charles Shannon, Johnny Tubbs, Elaine Beavers, Vicki and Alyssa Waite, Billie Jack- son, the family of Mrs. Wash- ington who died this week, nursing home residents .... Frances Grayson cel- ebrated her 75th birthday, which was October 27, in a big way Sunday afternoon with her daughter Ann and family hosting a party at the FUMC fellowship hall. All Frances requested for the occasion was cards with spe- cial memories written in them. These were placed in a bas- ket for her to take home and read at her leisure. The City Council had a quiet meeting the week be- fore homecoming. Most items were tabled, but road work continues on Lawrence and other' streets. ************************ Of course, I realize no one is safe in a terroristic state, but somehow, for the present, it isn't ba.d to live in "Po- dunk" which many young people won't understand.

Trinidad residents speak out during turbulent times .- Early at the General Store Cafe, breakfast eaters s out on a variety of war-time subjects. "President Bush seems to be doing a good job." "We help too many others, and we have people here who need help." "In other conflicts we as a nation set up leaders and then they turn on us. We help ev- ery country we fight and often get bitten in return. We don't seem to learn." "We need to take care of our own people here who don't have jobs and don't have enough to eat before we branch out to help others. It's got to stop." "Clinton had his good'points. But when everyone bragged about the econom8 when he was in office, they didn't come to Texas to see all our plants that had closed." "We got problems we need to solve immediately. I hope we can stop the bad guys this time, really stop them before too many lives are lost." Trojans pounce Milford 63-28 By Emily G. Lundy By half-time the game's out- come had been set with the Trojans leading 44-8, but with an opportunity to let everyone on the team get playing time, the action continued until the final 63-28. Desmond Jenkins had a ter- rific night. Out of 16 carries, he totaled 263 yards. "The first eight times he touched the ball, he scored six touch- downs," said head coach Ronny Miller. Sophomore Jenkins has helped along the way. His older brother Quincy Jenkins, plus J.P. Polk and Justin Martin, open up some large holes in his path. Jenkins told the coach sometimes he didn'tknow which one to take first. But once he chooses, the goal line is next. Freshman Dillon Tart had eight carries for 82 yards which averages out rather well. "Donnie Hart had a great defensive game," said Miller. Wes Burton was everywhere on defense, offense, kicking for extra points, etc. In the first quarter Trinidad led 24-0 with D. Jenkins scor- ing three times. The lead kept growing. In the second period Jenkins added three more scores as Milford tallied one. At halftime Trinidad led 44-8. The second half opened with Milford driving and scoring on a short scamper, but the kick for extra points was knocked down. Michael Johnson took the ball in for ten yards and a score. Then Milford came back to score, giving a 51-20 lead for the Trojans. In the final period Burton opened with a touchdown; then Continued on page 5B Front to back: (Freshmen): president, Collin Newsome; Ashlee Sparks, vice-president; secretary, Melissa Swonke; treasurer, Elisha Mattox.
