Layne Hendrick’s Mighty Band of Poets... He’s not one
of a kind, thank goodness. There art probably quite a few teachers in both of our school districts who encourage the gift of literary expression. I just happen to know about Layne and his enthusiasm for bringing out the poet in Students at Canyon Middle School. I know school’s been out for over two weeks now, but I was recently given a copy of The Jag, CMS’s litenuy magazine, Under Hendrick’s sponsorship, twenty-eight young minds created a work of written and illustrative art for which they can be proud. Four of those blossoming poets were Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalists in the New Braunfels Arts Council’s Poetry Contest this past April. Kudos to Layne Hendrick, and all those teachers who whet the appetites for beauty and truth
Another Mighty Band ..
This time it’s the musical variety. Our own Community Band, thirty-five strong, led by NBMS Assistant Principal, Ken McGuire. These teachers are doing all kinds of good things, aren’t they! Arts Council rep and band member, Henry Garza, talked excitedly about their upcoming concert this Thursday, and about McGuire’s dynamic leadership. I’m supposed to be at work at the theatre tomor-[ row night, but I may just slip out at 7 p.m. to head for the Landa Park dance slab to 11 do something very therapeutic. Sit on a JI park bench and listen to the sounds of

The Art League, at it
again ... If you noticed their story in last Wednesday’s edition, maybe you don’t need a reminder. Then again, if you’re as forgetful as I am, it won’t hurt to jog your memory about the Art League’s Artistic Outreach, happening from 9:30 a.m. to I pm. this Saturday, June 19, at the Ait Center Gallery in Walnut Square. Betty Clair will teach us how to do pastels, Pat Deltz will wave her watercolor wand, and Elaine Felder (brave soul!) will do the honors with stained glass. She doesn’t know what a mess I can make of it! It’s your chance, too, to dabble in the visual arts, for free, and you get to take home whatever you create. There’s a frightening thought!
Sandy, Annie’s big yellow
dog . Her real name is too long for this column, but her nickname is Asti (pronounced Ah-stee), which I suspect is
short for Asti Spumante, the champagne of Italian winesThat’s appropriate, considering that the dog we found for our summer musical, "Annie” is a Spinoni, a pedigree Italian bird dog. Of course, to us, she’s just a big, lovable, intelligent, sweet-faced, remarkable, four legged actor, who’s a pushover for a gaggle of little girls telling her bow wonderful she is. The question is: when the show ends, with the sound of applause ringing in her floppy earn, will Asti be able to lead just a dog’s life again?

I dare you to try to say that! It’s easier to say the whole unabbreviated name!
Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America. This melodious group meets weekly on Mondays at 7:30 pm., at First Baptist Church, 733 Ctosb St. If you need more information, call 608-9t68. Meanwhile, warm up your pipes. They probably need you.
A blackbird dancing ... i
find “artists’’ everywhere! The other morning, driving slowly through the park, I saw a grackle dancing! He was! I’ve seen birds hop a little before taking off, and I’ve seen them run, but this shiny, black fellow was twisting playfully, obviously enjoying himself, probably courting the shyer lady bird nearby. He was so comical, he made me laugh, and I needed to. An unexpected gift. Keep a lookout for yours.
