hometown of Big Spring.
After moving to Eden Home in New Braunfels a few years ago, Stamps began learning new art mediums, such as watercolor and charcoal.
“I think watercolor is the best way,” she said. “It s not as messy as oil. The water is much easier to work with and clean up.”
With a watercolor piece, Stamps won third place in the “Art is Ageless” contest through the Texas Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

Alvarez is the second winner from the New Braunfels store. Earlier this year, a local shopper was one of IO customers from around the state to win a chance to compete for a new home.
Although she was playing the Dream Home Giveaway game, Alvarez said she never thought she would win anything.
“I never dreamed in a million years I would win a car,” she said. “It’s a wonderful early Christmas present.”

good as winning in the county fair.”
Ogden said she is a doting fan of her mother’s work. Not only has she snapped up a few boxes of cards featuring Stamps’ art, but she also has turned her living room into a gallery of her mother’s paintings.
“She sees so many different shades in one color scheme, where I would just see one color," Ogden said. “Her perception of color combinations is outstanding."
From Staff Reports
A new candidate hopes to bring a little courage to the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of voters in Texas Congressional District 21.
John Courage, the first Democrat to file an attempt to unseat Lamar Smith in next year’s race, said he is running a grassroots campaign to rekindle voters’ faith in the government’s ability to be a force for positive change.
“John Courage’s name embodies what Texans in District 21 are looking for in their next congressman — the courage to insist that their mainstream values, and not
just Tom DeLay’s, be represented in Washington; the courage to stand with ordinary Texas families and small businesses against the corporate special interests; the courage to rekindle that faith they once had in government to be a force for positive change in their daily lives,” said a statement posted on his Web site.
(Murages platform is a direct appeal to the Democratic mainstream.
He said he is committed to keeping Social Security solvent, expanding health-care servic-
es offered through Medicare and Medicaid, securing more qualified and better paid teachers for the public education system, bringing troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan as quickly as possible and beefing up national security efforts.
Courage also supports stronger environmental agencies, American energy self-sufficiency and maintaining promised veterans benefits.
Courage has received endorsements from the San Antonio AFL-CIO, numerous vocational unions and several
teachers groups, including the State Teachers Association.
He has the support of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards and several San Antonio-area Democratic officials.
Courage began his political career on the Alamo Community College District Board of Trustees in 1980.
He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the UTSA after spending four years in the Air Force.
For the last 15 years, he as worked as a classroom teacher, serving special education students in the San Antonio Independent School District.
Courage, his wife and four children live in San Antonio.

“Before we open presents, we all sing ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,’” Kendra said. “Mommy likes the way I sing it because I put a lot of rhythm in it.”
Joaquin Gomez, a tliird-grader at Frazier, said tradition is a big part of his winter break, too.
“I get to spend time with my cousins, who all live nearby” he said. “We play football every day over Christmas break.”
Family also will be a big part of Christmas for Sarah Scroggin, a first-grader at Lamar. As one of five children, there’s always someone for Sarah to play with.

Parker Gettys, a first-grader at Lamar, is also making an annual voyage to San Antonio to meet St. Nick.
“We’re going to the mall tomorrow to
see Santa!” he said.
“I’m hoping he’ll bring me a really cool remote-control car.”
Keely Johnson, a first-grader at Lamar, said she expects a Christmas lull of presents and pizza for Christmas dinner. Not to mention a special Christmas Eve visitor — Santa himself .
