Jan Bohuslav Sobota died on May 2nd of 2012 and this is my remembrance of this fine man who was a friend and mentor to me.
Each autumn, salmon return to the rivers of their birth a€“ there to spawn and once again trigger a renewal of the eternal passion play. Salmon that do eventually arrive at their destinations must once again compete a€“ this time for mates and to fight for access to the precious and very limited gravels. The profligate expenditure of life and extravagant wealth of biology is there everywhere to behold, as Death dances lightly among the gathering throngs of fish, picking and choosing from among them; who from their number shall successfully spawn and who shall just be food for the gathering predators and scavengers. Spend a day in silence, walking among the spawning salmon, as they dig spawning redds, jockey for position and slash at competitors with those gaping, snaggletoothed, hooked jaws. Jan Bohuslav Sobota has died, while half a world away; I was preparing these etchings of Spawned Salmon and dedicating them to Jan, the lover of fish. The book you hold in your hands has evolved from my simply giving these etchings a second life in book form, to my using them as a vehicle for honoring a friendship of three decades. In 1985, Jan and I had been corresponding for some months without ever meeting a€“ all quite distant and correct. A short bit of background on Jan Sobota to begin, but fear not; Ia€™ll soon be spinning anecdotes and thoughts on books as art a€“ celebrating Jana€™s life of course, telling a few stories out of school, but also straying into the personal and speculative in search of the meaning to be derived from the life and death of a friend.
Jana€™s father was a serious bibliophile and collector of fine books, who nurtured that same love of books in his son a€“ an appreciation that steadily grew, until he was apprenticed to master bookbinder Karel A ilinger in PlzeA?.
The pivotal event in Jana€™s early life as a book artist was the posthumous retrospective exhibition of fellow Pilsener, Josef VA?chal in 1969. Jan supported a family, sponsored workshops, exhibited widely, did conservation work on rare historic books, ran a gallery a€“ and on it went.
What Jan did for contemporary bookbinding, was to act as a bridge between the traditionally trained masters of the past and innovators of the present.
America was a great place to be a book artist in the early 1980a€™s precisely because it was an active zone of hybridization and hotbed of creativity. An instructive contrast to the anything-goes US scene was the icy reception I got when I showed a wooden box containing loose sheets of poetry and etchings to a Prague publisher. Neither Jan nor I had much interest in the book-like objects that often sneak into the museums as book arts a€“ the carved and glued together things that sorta, kinda have a bookish aspect to them a€“ rough-looking a€“ perhaps chain-sawed Oaken boards or granite slabs, slathered in tar and lashed together with jute; but lacking text.
When Jana€™s books went beyond function, conservation or decoration, they were subtle statements about binding and the place of books, knowledge and art, as well as statements about the dignity inhering in the handcrafted - with a good dose humor. There are others who know their conservation and those, whose scientific contributions are far greater, but few of them are also artists at heart. It can sound so pedestrian, these eternal compromises between art and craft, yet what Jan represented was not at all common. There is an inflection point at which exceptional craft begins to make the transition to art and it is closely associated with surmounting the limitations inhering to the discipline. Visiting with Jan in his workshop you quickly realized, that he did what a professional must, but ultimately, he just loved messing about with books. A curiously protean hybrid of artist and craftsman, ancient and modern, one cannot think of Jan without seeing an unabashed Czech patriot in a foreign land.
Early on in their stay in Cleveland, the Sobotas experienced the quintessential American disaster. Even after their medical debts were retired, money was still an issue for a family of immigrants with three kids a€“ two with special needs.
Later on, when they were living in Texas, the massacre at Waco opened Jana€™s eyes to yet another difficult side of his adopted home. In 1979, I apprenticed with Jindra Schmidt, an engraver of stamps and currency, living in Prague.
Schmidt had engraved stamps for Bulgaria, Iraq, Ethiopia, Albania, Guinea, Vietnam and Libya. In 1992, Jindra Schmidt was honored for his contributions and depicted on the last stamp of a united Czechoslovakia, before it split into Czech and Slovak republics a€“ a fitting tribute. Unlike most children of immigrants, my destiny remained connected to that of my parentsa€™ homeland.
My vocation as artist clarified itself in Prague while learning the increasingly obsolete skills of steel engraving. My first book was indeed, modeled after VA?chal, even to the extent of its diabolical subject matter.
Jan showed me a great deal in the following years about the tradition of books as the meeting place of art, craft and ideas a€“ where printmaking intergrades seamlessly with the worlds of language, typography and illustration.
One can like these things just fine and admire them from an uncomprehending distance, or you can become engaged. The book you hold was to have been a simple reprint of the Spawned Salmon a€“ something fun for Jan to work his magic upon.
Nice sentimental reminiscences, but there is still the matter of getting the work accomplished and out before the public, organizing exhibitions, printing catalogs and paying for transatlantic flights.
The Prague show was reconfigured and curated by Jana€?s longtime friend, Ilja A edo, for exhibition at the West Bohemian Museum in PlzeA?.
Quite predictably, I like seeing the kind of work I do honored a€“ the wood engravings and etchings made to shine in the context of crisply printed type and an excellent binding.
Ia€™ve heard printmakers lament that the surest way to devalue prints is to add excellent poetry, sensitive typography and a bang-up binding a€“ and then live to see the whole thing sell for half the price of just the unbound prints. Therea€™s nothing quite like seventeenth century Bohemia, the dead center of Europe, for particularly thorough violence a€“ with the Bubonic Plague stepping in afterwards as mop-up crew.
The chapel at Sedlec was rebuilt after the major blood-letting of the thirty-years war as a memento mori a€“ reminder of death. What can you say about the mounds of dead, the ruined lives, destroyed nations and misery multiplied by millions that isna€™t trite or self-evident?
But then I pan over to other fields a€“ not the kind where the grass is composting my fellow man, but to fields of endeavor where the ferment is of ideas recombining into ever more refined ways of thinking.
I once lived at the Golem house in Prague a€“ at Meislova ulice, number 8, in the old Jewish ghetto. Horoscopes might seem a curious basis on which to select ministers and diplomats, but it is also more common than youa€™d think. Picture the scene before you: Ita€™s a late night in Prague, before the Marlboro man dominated every street corner, even before the neon of casinos and the vulgarity of Golden Arches assaulted the nightwalkersa€™ eyes at all hours a€“ back when darkness, oh yes, that beautiful comforting velvety, all-enveloping and blessed dark, broken only by the moon, stars and late night taxis, still ruled the streets after the sun went down. The Golem was a mythic being of Jewish folklore, created from clay and quickened by the Shem, a magical stone engraved with an ancient Hebraic inscription, inserted into Golema€™s forehead. The maternal tongues of these small nations have miraculously survived all the invasions, floods, plagues and foreign occupiers to this day a€“ a gift preserved and delivered to them across the generations.
Minority languages, on the other hand, carry an emotional load that can scarcely be exaggerated. Ishi and his sister were the last of the Yahi tribe to survive the genocidal colonization of California. Those whose language and culture are not threatened can never know the burden under which the carriers of small minority languages labor a€“ nor how those in exile bring up their children to preserve that which is beyond their capacities to save.
Jan was all about preserving traditions and the kind of ancestral knowledge that today is mostly enshrined in books. Today, the stories of our tribes are less and less passed on as oral tradition and most often read to us from the childrena€™s books wea€™ve learned to treasure a€“ illustrated by fine artists and produced with care for the highly discriminating purchasers of childrena€™s books a€“ for grandparents. A?epelA?k employed binders and typesetters to present complete suites of his work and in this too, he introduced me to a new world. Later in Prague I missed my flight back, due to the World Trade Center bombing and was delayed by a week. The difficult thing to bear in acknowledging my teachers, models, heroes, suppliers and inspirations, is that these masters of the crafts and industries surrounding and supporting the book arts are mostly deceased.
The fruit we seek is not fast food, but laden with full-bodied flavors, attained by slow natural processes. All of us come from grandfathers who once were wheelwrights, cobblers or instrument makers; men with a profound love of wood and leather, who knew the working qualities of every kind of obscure tree growing in their countryside a€“ men who knew when to reach for elm or hickory a€“ as well as for goat, dog or even fish-skins. Jan spoke fondly of his grandmother, who baked bread every week of the year to feed an entire estate a€“ farm hands, livery people, gentry, trainers and hod-carriers alike. Working consciously is the ultimate goal a€“ and that is the legacy youa€™ll find evidently contained within and upon the boards of every book bound by Jan Bohuslav Sobota. The etchings you see here first came to life as illustrations for the wedding anniversary announcements of MA­la and Jaroslav KynA?l. Jan Bohuslav Sobota died on May 2nd of 2012 and this is my remembrance of this fine man who was a friend and mentor to me.A  He was an exceptional bookbinder, teacher and promoter of the book arts, but also an exile who successfully returned home after years abroad. You might begin your school days with a 30-40 minute devotional, looking something like this.
Beautiful Girlhood (If you change or alternate the pronouns, this book can be used for a boy or a mixed group of boys and girls.
Beyond Boyhood (If you change or alternate the pronouns, this book can be used for a girl or a mixed group of boys and girls. The memorization system will aid the child in forming a habit of attention and retention of the scripture, poetry, and more. Everyone over 6 should have personal scriptures and a three ring devotional binder.A  Begin with prayer.
Very little is said about Jesusa€™ childhood and youth in the scriptures, however, the apostle Luke thought it would be important for all children learn about Jesusa€™ early life.
Ask a Child to Read: a€?I suppose no one had more or greater experiences regarding the protection which comes from wearing the whole armor of God than did Daniel.
Ask a child to read: Daniel and his three friends, whom we know as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, begged permission to refuse the kinga€™s meat and wine, and the prince who had charge over them told Daniel that the king would be very angry if they appeared less healthy and fair to look upon than the others through their failure to eat the kinga€™s fare.
Ask a child to read: After ten days they looked better and appeared healthier than all the others, so they were allowed to continue. Do you wait for Mother and hold her chair,a€?Or sit down and eat as though shea€™s not there? How ought mothers and fathers do their duty in helping their children increase in favor (good manners and habits)? When Mother or Father ask you to play outside, eat good food, drink water, or study and work hard, from whom is the commandment really coming? Ask a child to read: a€?And it came to pass that I, Nephi, returned from speaking with the Lord, to the tent of my father. Ask a child to read: For behold, Laban hath the record of the Jews and also a genealogy of my forefathers, and they are engraven upon plates of brass. Leta€™s sing a primary song, Nephia€™s Courage, which will help us understand this even better. Besides FHE, the family Devotional is the most important part of raising children, in my opinion.

During his time at Wests John went from a speedy, hard running and tackling winger into a very hard running, ferocious tackling Test playing second rower.But let us not get to far ahead of ourselves a€¦a€¦John was born at Kempsey (not Casino) on the 1-3-1947. There they encounter resident trout and bass a€“ even sunfish, chubs and dace, all keyed into the increasingly plentiful and highly nutritious bounty of salmon eggs.
Situated 90A km south-west of Prague at the confluence of four rivers, PlzeA? is first recorded in writings from the tenth century. That vision was about innovation and creativity within the context of an historical tradition. This is what youa€™ll see in a Sobota binding a€“ exceptional attention paid to context and relationships, using materials and technical means that do indeed function and last. He knew his work was valuable and documented it fastidiously a€“ confident that it would be last. There was, however, nothing about his nationalism that demeaned anybody elsea€™s traditions or origins.
That smallish incident within the parade of American fringe politics elicited an insanely violent level of suppression.
Masaryk a€“ and the cute little girl with a bouquet of flowers, is my mother Eva, at the age of three. Schmidta€™s income from the federal mint far exceeded anybody elsea€™s in the extended family and supported a network of cars, cottages and rent-controlled flats. Schmidt, as he preferred to be called, was a man of conservative demeanor who preferred polite and reserved forms of speech and address. While visiting their unassuming engraver and extending my tourist visa 30 days at a time, I was quietly becoming qualified for life as a counterfeiter a€“ a vocation within which, one is set for life, however it may eventually turn out. Jan allowed several binders to have their way with it a€“ amo boxes for slipcases with shell casings for hinges and so forth.
This next incarnation of our exhibit in PlzeA? was all just a bit more prosaic and provincial. Is it the binding we consider and exhibit a€“ or is the binding there to conserve a text, which is ultimately the point? There are also binders to whom everything else is merely the text block, who care little if it is an offset trade edition or a book made by hand. The tales therein recorded reflected the accreted wisdom and wit of a people as they retold them across the highlands in modest log cottages after the harvest was in. The way of working belongs to the Sobota vision I addressed earlier a€“ the honor and soul to be found in conscientiously made handcrafts. I dona€™t feel that accomplished or ready to assume their mantle and yet with every generation that is what must happen. Gravels, with just the right flow of fresh water running up through stones of the right size are but a tiny portion of the riverbed.A  The salmon must struggle past cities and sewer pipes, farms and irrigation systems, dams and turbines, fishermen and waterfalls a€“ just to reach the streams of their birth. As with the other subjects, the more your children have in common, the more likely that they will choose to be friends in addition to being siblings.
I thought it a better idea to teach mothers how to design devotionals according to the current needs of their family. Using the topical guide of the LDS standard works, Building Faith in Christ Through the Book of Mormon, True to the Faith, Learning Resources for Children Topics, and Come Follow Me youth curriculum, you and your children can discover doctrine behind the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.


Although I've tried and abandoned several, I keep coming back to the following wonderful method that we discovered and used in our homeschool. If you then use these as dictation and copy work (spelling and penmanship), you further cement the words in the cranium. You might ask your warda€™s Primary Chorister what the focus song is for that month so the Primary children will learn the songs very well and gain joy over being prepared.
Repeat this lesson a couple times a year, because these concepts are worth repeating over and over again. If you dona€™t play the piano or guitar to accompany the hymns, go to LDS.org to the hymns section and play the MP3 for this purpose. Look up the definitions asked for in some of the following questions in Webstera€™s 1828 dictionary. They ought to help me learn Goda€™s word, guide my schoolwork, and encourage me in both of these. At the summons of King Nebuchadnezzar, he, with other chosen children of Israel, was brought to live in the kinga€™s palace for certain training. Daniel asked for a period of ten days in which they might eat pulse [vegetables, legumes, and grains], and drink water, and then be compared with the others who were eating and drinking the kinga€™s farea€”meat and wine. At the end of three years, when they were brought before the king, we are told that among them all was found none like Daniel and his three friends, and in all matters of wisdom and understanding, the king found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers in his realm.
I ought to help mother make pulse and grow vegetables, only ask for and eat good food, drink lots of water, and play outside instead of sitting around. Heavenly Fathera€¦Leta€™s read about Nephi and see what he and his father have to say about it.
And it came to pass that he spake unto me, saying: Behold I have dreamed a dream, in the which the Lord hath commanded me that thou and thy brethren shall return to Jerusalem.
Wherefore, the Lord hath commanded me that thou and thy brothers should go unto the house of Laban, and seek the records, and bring them down hither into the wilderness.
Therefore go, my son, and thou shalt be favored of the Lord, because thou hast not murmured. Although we chose to do our family devotionals after dinner each evening, morning devotionals work best for other families.
The Book of Mormon for LDS Families and others in the series contain all manner of resources that really help everyone understand the scriptures very well. True the little one can't read yet, but it gives them a sense of the importance of what you are doing.
I think with a family meeting to discuss the problem and the addition of these resources, your problems should lessen. This widely beloved stamp was re-issued in 2000 and mother continues to receive philatelic fan mail to this day. He died the day I was composing a colophon for the Spawned Salmon with words of praise for his lifea€™s work.
Don't hesitate to bear your testimony and explain things from your personal revelation as the parent during this special time. Doing so, parents help to instill in their children testimonies built on knowledge and wisdom instead of vague ideas or the desire to please parents. In fact, I got a new set of scriptures to begin this marking system all over again from my new perspective of a middle-aged woman. When the child reads, copies, and discusses the selections, visual, kinesthetic, and auditory aspects of learning are begun. All that is required is the consistent reading and reciting the entire selection two or three times daily until the child can recite it by memory. When you begin singing together as a family, it may not be all roses and beautiful notes at first. Choices affect everyone in the persona€™s family, their friends, their future spouse and children, their ability to support their family someday, and their progression in the next life. They were to be carefully nourished for three years, at which time they would stand before the king. Did you know that learning good manners and habits is one way to find favor with God and man? At first the children were enthusiastic (it was their idea, in fact!) but now they grumble and drag into the room. With this our scriptural discussions and enthusiasm at family devotional time increased, because youngsters could really understand.
Ask the child to join in the recitation.A  Continuing the two or three daily recitations, you will begin to see the child confidently recite the selections. The engraving was masterfully done by Schmidta€™s long-dead colleague, Bohumil Heinz (1894-1940). The state security apparatus was surely aware of my presence, but if they kept tabs on me, I never knew. Each child should have their own copy of the standard works to use during devotional, even non-readers. Find a child appropriate drawing lesson of the animal on Youtube or in one of the Draw Write Now books. I had my last set for decades.a€?a€?With a two-fold purpose, it will help all who adopt it to learn the doctrines of the scriptures better and prepare you to speak on doctrine. These pencils can be found in packages very inexpensively.a€?a€?As you go through the topics and build devotionals, you will read specific scriptures that enhance the topic.
The child never comes to realize that his parents are bound to a higher law than their own whims--he never learns that parents can't let him break his sister's toys, or stuff himself with cake, or make everyone around him miserable, because it isn't right.
Apparently they were to be fed with the choicest of food, including the kinga€™s meat and wine.
I'm trying to think of things to help cheerfully wake them up and help them engage in the scriptures and our discussions. With a non-reader, Mom or Dad or another child who is a good reader sits next to the assigned non-reader and reads the non-readers verse a few words at a time pointing to each word. I had my last set for decades.With a two-fold purpose, it will help all who adopt it to learn the doctrines of the scriptures better and prepare you to speak on doctrine. These pencils can be found in packages very inexpensively.As you go through the topics and build devotionals, you will read specific scriptures that enhance the topic.
The Ladycats had a hard time inbounding the ball until Megan Wood broke free and was heading to the basket for a layup. Everything is just so wonderful and everybody so creative, but suspending judgment long enough to actually look at some artwork and then giving it a chance isna€™t so bankrupt, is it?
Human body parts are again flying and the Baron is at his best defeating Turks and evading friendly fire from buffoonish generals.
Farmers would occasionally find their possessions and take them as souvenirs, unaware that the last Indians still lived in their midst.
Damn the cost; ita€™s who we are and the last material vestiges of soulful encounters with our elders a€“ onea€™s whose stories are slipping inexorably away, thinned by each passing year and generation. Their kids were grown and they were by then slipping into that last, reflective phase of life a€“ done competing. The children should attempt the drawing lesson on their signs and rewards chart for their religion binder. On the blank pages in the back and front of the scriptures, each person will have dozens of topics outlined for instant talks. Building consistently accurate and complicated, beautiful language patterns, knowledge of the Constitution of the United States, great poetry, and a store of gospel doctrine, the child develops his intellect and character. The child needs to see that his parents are bound by the same codes of right and wrong that he is. Often, if you ask for their help and suggestions, they come up with better ideas and stick to them better than if you just mandate something.
These scraps turned out to be a deck of medieval playing cards - the second oldest such cards known. A book is so much more than the sum of its parts a€“ and yet each of us tends to have our own bailiwick in which we shine and to which we look first. If the child doesna€™t develop a solid testimony and chooses rebellion, real trouble could result.
Because they studied and understand the doctrines that go with the topics, these talks will be further possible and successful. Using a blue colored pencil (I use prisma color ultramarine) circle and color in the reference number. We could do all kinds of things together while playing, but for one of us to try to sing a solo before the others was like asking ice cream to stay hard on the kitchen stove. Mom or Dad, whoever is leading the devotional each morning, should pause to discuss the sections in each of the additional resources as seems appropriate.
This situation usually calls for an intentional foul but the referees called a regular two shot foul. These plates have been inked and wiped by hand, employing methods that woulda€™ve been familiar to Rembrandt. With this topical journey through scripture, each will develop testimonial confidence not often found in someone young children or for that matter most adults. Depending on the length of the selections, your family will usually have them down pretty well at the end of the week (scripture and quote,) or month (poems and songs).
We also found that doing scripture study around the dining room table compared to sprawled out on the living room floor was more conducive to paying attention. John was also playing rep football Group v Group.A 1965 A  Johna€™s life was about to change forever. They crashed with my wife Jana and me in Kalamazoo, while taking the a€?orientation coursea€?nearby. I can confidently report back to my English reader, that Jan would only grow in stature for you, if you could have fully understood the subtlety of his thoughts in his own maternal tongue. Perhaps right for those who shouldna€™t have sharp objects, for fear of hurting themselves. That show was purchased whole by Special Collections at Western Michigan University and constitutes the largest collection of Sobota bindings and the most complete archive of my work. As you read the scripture, use a prisma color red colored pencil to underline meaningful parts of the scripture. When they also read them aloud themselves and write them 5 times per week, they cannot help capturing them in their brains.
Eric organized for Billy Owens and Noel Kelly to visit and chat to John about playing for Wests in Sydney. Few people would have cast a second glance at that glued-up mess of moldering old papers before pitching it, nor would they have recognized what they had in hand or known how to restore or sell it.
At the conclusion of the topic, write the first scripture in the chain next to the blue-circled scripture. These folks were a profound blessing to a family facing some truly rough sailing a€“ a Godsend. Schmidt had worked was signed with warm dedications to him and thus worth real money to collectors.
He wanted to see the printmaker in me come to full fruition and I wanted to be worthy of his attentions. The family has dwelled within sight of the seats of power, pushing copper plates through a press and outlived the Hapsburg Monarchy, First Republic, Nazis and Communists.
The intact packages were still there on their shelves, all duly graded, labeled and priced, awaiting an owner who was never to return. This method will change the way you see the world, your goals, eternal life, relationships, your behavior, and build your testimony if you let it. Marlowe played some in the first half but was stone cold coming off the bench to shoot the free throws. He was told that he should play Rugby Union to beat the transfer fee that Smithtown might put on him.The story was if you played RU for 1 year you could move over to League and not incur a transfer fee. Back home, their Czech neighbors would have envied them and accused them of theft or worse, but people here seemed to be pleased as punch to see them prosper a€“ genuinely happy for them. Those items too, kept trickling out the door, until there came a sad, sad day, when the golden eggs were all gone. Not only might this method be used with this sort of family devotional, it can be used with all sorts of books, lessons, and pamphlets that include scripture study at their core. One of Johna€™s flatmates was trying out for Easts Rugby League and told John to come along and try out for Easts.John met with Roy Flynn, the Easts treasurer at the time and the conversation went like thisa€¦a€?No chance, bring him back when he grows up!!!a€? John had just turned 18. Out of those simple little meetings, held in the parlor of our old home, came something indescribable and wonderful. This chat stayed with John and he always played that little bit harder when Wests played Easts.John, without a car, arrived at Ashfield park via public transport and trained with Wests. They bashfully admitted their foolishness and went back to making beautiful books a€“ and their American friends were so relieved to see them regain their sanity. You take time to grieve and then pick yourself up by your bootstraps (by God a€“ get a grip) and get on with it (Rome wasna€™t built in a day you know). StrejA?ek was still working, but it was all coming to an inevitable end, as he grew shaky of hand and hard of seeing. Both teams allowed the big crowd to get settled in their seats before the real action began in the second half.
The Ladycats got off to a rough start offensively in the first quarter as their shots were just not falling. Enriched by my days of being nurtured by Prague, Matkou MA›st (Mother of Cities), I moved on to meet my destiny with art. In Aledo’s first district game against Trimble Tech, the Lady Bulldogs led 28-22 at halftime before Aledo pulled out a 48-44 win. These wonderful things came about because our parents followed the counsel of the President of the Church.a€? Gordon B. On Tuesday, Trimble Tech was ahead 21-17 and getting to the free throw line at an alarming rate. It looked like it was going to be an off night for the Ladycats as they had only three players scoring in the first half. Alyssa Dry had 11, Breann Forbes had four and Rylie Makawe had two. Everything turned around for Aledo in the third quarter. I cana€™t find out the score but John tells me the Water Board boys won.A A The main event.


Besides being an excellent ball handler and relentless on defense, Dry has scored 76 points in the three games against Trimble Tech. The Lady Bulldogs have two outstanding players in juniors Lekendra Bassett (11 points) and Karrington Brown (23 points).
The two Trimble Tech sharp shooters kept the Lady Bulldogs in the game connecting on six three-pointers. Bassett hit two free throws and Alyssa Dry blew past two defenders for a layup putting Aledo back up 41-39. Off another steal, Dry then sank another three-pointer with 0:55 left putting Aledo ahead 44-39 and ending Alyssa’s eight point run in less than a minute of playing time.
One team, drawn out of a hat, would have the luxury of playing the winner of the first playoff match. Aledo led 44-39 heading into the fourth quarter. Justis Sczcepanski drew her fourth foul on a horrible call to begin the fourth quarter. Trimble Tech had a chance to tie the game but Justis came up with a big block sending Megan Wood back the other way with the ball. Aledo got the ball back and went up by five on two Breann Forbes free throws with 0:49 left to play. One night Ned arrived to find me asleep on a park bench with a newspaper over my head and I was christened Sleepy which over time was turned into Snoozer.a€?A Below is a story about Johns life now at South West Rocks. A A Ita€™s a bumpy, dusty drive beside the Macleay River just south of South West Rocks (home to Smoky Cape Lighthouse and a prison with a killer view, Trial Bay Gaol) to get to the big blue shed at Rainbow Reach, with potholes so deep you could fish in them a€“ but the drive is worth it. John Elfords oysters explode in your mouth, salty and creamy, with a lingering mineral aftertaste.Hea€™s been oyster farming here for a dozen years, is passionate about his product and the river he works and lives by, and reckons he wouldna€™t want to do anything else.
First, the Ladycats were called for a phantom base line infraction giving the ball back to Trimble Tech. Seconds later, Sczcepanski was called for her fifth foul while standing perfectly straight on defense. Trimble Tech hit both free throws to tie the score at 56-56 and Justis on the bench with five fouls. Coach Pinkerton called a time out with Aledo’s possession of the ball after the Ladycats had a tough time on the inbound pass. High school basketball is not like the NBA where a team gets possession at midcourt. As aA  Wests fan in the 1960a€™s and 70a€™s John a€?Snoozera€? Elford was a player I would love to watch play. Aledo clamped down again on defense and Trimble Tech did not even get a shoot off at the end of the game. Leading Ladycats vs. Aledo won that game 59-30 and went on to beat Canyon 54-31 before holding off El Paso Hanks 50-48 to earn a trip to the state tournament in Austin. Congratulations to the Arlington Heights Lady Yellow Jackets who stunned Granbury 38-37 to tie with the Lady Pirates at 9-5 on the season. The Lady Pirates will play a one-game tie-breaker Friday night to decide third and fourth place. Aledo Sports Daily will bring you the best coverage of Ladycat playoff basketball possible. The Sandies should be a tough team in basketball this year.Anything can happen in the playoffs. Last year, Wichita Falls Rider was at the top of the rankings behind sensational senior Taliyah Brooks.
She got hurt just before the playoffs started and the Lady Raiders lost to Granbury in the Area round. A lot of my predictions come from looking at the schedule and who the teams have lost to and defeated during the season. At first glance, it looks like Aledo, Trimble Tech, Canyon, and El Paso Hanks should be the favorites in Region I.

Be careful of the Rodeo traffic. The Bearcats return home for their Senior Night on Tuesday, February 11. It will be another tough district opponent from Arlington Heights. Saturday, February 1, 2014# 33 Marlowe Hudson is a key reserve off the bench for Coach Mike Pinkerton and the Ladycats. The Ladycat basketball team is an extremely close knit group with genuine care and concern for their teammates. Aledo Sports Daily will give Ladycat fans an update as soon as information is available. It was another dominate performance by the Ladycats, especially on the defensive end, for their 13th straight district victory with only one game to play. In going 13-0, Aledo has outscored their district opponents by an average of 40 points per game (68-28). The Ladycats started a little slowly on offense Friday night at Granbury. Black had eight points in the first quarter. The second quarter started off slowly again offensively for the Ladycats.
Alyssa Dry got an excellent “no look” pass from Rhylie Makawe with 3:22 left putting Aledo up 29-12. Megan Wood finished off the run with a free throw and bucket giving Aledo a 20 point lead, 32-12, with 1:23 left until halftime. Whew!
The Lady Pirates did try to make a game of it by scoring the last five points of the first half.
Maddie Mittie scored the only other points for Aledo with a basket. Granbury could not take advantage of a bad offensive quarter by the Ladycats. The Lady Bulldogs are 12-1 with their only loss to Aledo during the first half of district. The Tuesday game is basically for bragging rights and the district championship crown.
It really doesn’t make much difference as far as playoff position goes entering the playoffs. The game Tuesday will be the best competition either team faces for the first three rounds of the Region I playoffs. In case you are wondering, the Class 4A playoffs begin Monday and Tuesday, February 10 and 11. If the playoffs began after last Fridays games, here would be the first round matchups (subject to change): # 1 Aledo (13-0) vs # 4 Burleson (8-4)# 2 Trimble Tech (12-1) vs # 3 Crowley (9-4)# 3 Granbury (9-4) vs.
Arlington Heights looked like a shoo-in a couple of weeks ago to claim the last spot in District 7-4A. The Western Hills Cougars have made a charge in the past two weeks and may be in a position to make the playoffs. Worth Southwest has donated his time to making sense of the bottom half of the district standings. The basket earned a robust cheer from the crowd at the gym on a very athletic play where Dry hung in the air to secure the basket.
The quarter ended with a 29-2 Aledo lead with Dry scoring 14 points. The Ladycats were at the top of their game in every facet Tuesday night. They fueled their offense off a bevy of steals, offensive rebounds, great defense, and offense teamwork.
Huddleston, a freshman, looked sharp passing the ball to a hungry reserve unit Tuesday night and she scored the last bucket of the third quarter which Aledo won 26-11.
The Ladycat reserves even looked sharp spreading the floor with some great ball handling the rest of the way.
Rhylie Makawe added nine off the bench and adds some toughness to the already athletic Ladycat team.
Sarah Rogers also ended up with four points. Playoff Scenarios for the Aledo LadycatsGranbury had Trimble Tech down 12-3 at the end of the first quarter.
The Lady Bulldogs came back for a 59-50 win despite former Ladycat Bryce Frank scoring 18 points. The win for Trimble Tech keeps the District 7-4A Championship focused between Aledo and Trimble Tech. They will finish in third place even if they lose to Aledo on Friday night. Everything is still pointing toward the Aledo vs. Worth, Texas—The Aledo Ladycats ran into a team with a chip on their shoulder Friday night at Cougar Gym in Ft.
The Western Hills Cougars looked like a team fighting for the final playoff spot in District 7-4A and not a team wanting to fade into Mike Tyson’s “Bolivian”. The Ladycats de-clawed the Lady Cougars 78-15 when the two teams met in Aledo just before the Christmas Break.
This time around, the Lady Cougars improved the margin of victory for Aledo by 25 points in a 78-50 Aledo victory.Western Hills became the only district team to score 50 points on the Ladycats this season.
The 15 points by Western Hills matched their entire total for the first game against Aledo. It looked like business as usual for Aledo when Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers scored four points on two free throws and a basket on an assist from Alyssa Dry. Maddie Mittie had eight points off the Ladycat bench. The game was extended with whistle happy referees.
Western Hills scored 14 of their 50 points at the line on 26 attempts. Leading Ladycats vs.
The odds are against the Lady Pirates who lost to Aledo 53-27 and Trimble Tech 63-45 during the first half of district. Aledo beat Trimble Tech 60-56 in the Granbury tournament earlier this year. The Ladycats also beat Trimble Tech 48-44 on the road back on January 10. The final showdown on February 4 should be for all the marbles in District -4A. Without knowing all the records of teams in the district, it is safe to assume the Ladycats have clinched a playoff berth with only four games remaining. Despite the 45 point victory, the game was a bit sloppy for Ladycat standards.
Alyssa Dry scored two consecutive baskets off defensive steals to put Aledo up 25-11 with 5:16 to play in the second quarter.
Breanne Forbes scored four in the quarter which ended with a Hannah Berkovsky basket at the buzzer. Megan Wood started off the third quarter with a bang. Wood scored two baskets off her own steals and Dry stole the last basket with an assist to Wood.
Worth TX—It was almost like football season again from the South Hills Gym Friday night in Ft.
The starters were gone from the game just minutes into the second half and the officials ran the clock most of the second half. The win propelled the Ladycats to 9-0 in district play and 20-3 overall. Enough games have been played to pencil in Aledo for a chance to return to Austin through the playoffs.
Both teams should remain undefeated in district until their final meeting of the year February 4, 2014 at Aledo. In the first half, Alyssa Dry used some of her eight steals to help her score 14 of her team high 18 points in the first half. Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers controlled the boards and ended up with q points for the game. Coach Mike Pinkerton went almost exclusively with his reserves in the second half and senior post Sarah Rogers came up big for the Ladycats with 14 points. Madison Mittie also chipped in 11 points off the Ladycat bench. Rogers was a key player for Aledo as the Ladycats outscored the Lady Scorpions 28-16 in the clock-shortened second half. Having another scoring threat in the low post will serve Aledo well as they prepare for the 2014 playoffs.The Ladycats rolled out to a 19-4 first quarter lead behind Alyssa Dry with eight points and Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers with four. The starters left the floor after Dry’s second bucket ad did not return to the game. The reserves continued to play rugged defense led by senior Marlowe Hudson who also chipped in two points in the third quarter. Sarah Rogers stole the ball from the Lady Scorpios and drove for a layup with 2:51 remaining in the quarter to put Aledo up 53-16. Rogers ended up with eight points in a 18-5 Aledo third quarter. Freshman Cameron Huddleston got some key minutes running the show as the point guard in the fourth quarter.
Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers won the tip to Kaylee Black who drove down for a left handed layup putting Aledo up 2-0. It was the beginning of a 14-0 run to start the game for the Ladycats. All five Ladycat starters scored in the first quarter led by Sczcepanski-Beavers with six points.
Alyssa Dry showed great game awareness by pulling up for a jump shot rather than taking a layup as the first quarter ended on Dry’s basket at the buzzer.
Aledo was up 20-5 at the end of the first quarter. The Ladycats continued their defensive pressure as Kaylee Black blocked a Lady Jackets shot and stole the ball. Arlington Heights put in a fierce defensive effort centered on shutting down Aledo’s Alyssa Dry. They only lost by five to Granbury last week. Aledo played the three playoff teams in a row to increase the district winning streak to nine games.
Worth—The Aledo Ladycats completed a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the undefeated Trimble Tech Lady Bulldogs 48-44 Friday night in Fort Worth. Alyssa Dry had another great district game with 21 points and Justis Szczepanski-Bevers scored 12 to lead the Ladycats (18-3, 7-0) over the Lady Bulldogs (20-4, 6-1). Both of these teams should breeze through the second half of district with a huge game in Aledo on Tuesday, February 4.
Last year, Aledo got some help from Granbury with a win over Trimble Tech but it looks like the game in February will be for all the marbles. The Ladycats start the district schedule all over again with a home game against Arlington Heights Tuesday, January 19 in Bearcat Gym. Aledo won the first game at Granbury 46-40 and followed with a home win in the second half of district with a 50-46 win. The final game was a 55-37 victory in the State Quarterfinals. There was no such drama on Tuesday night as Aledo used a suffocating defense to shut down the Lady Pirates 53-27 in their matchup in the first half of District 7-4A play. Granbury now has two district losses after falling to Trimble Tech 63-45 last Friday night. They are still in playoff contention. The win for Aledo sets up a huge district battle with the Lady Bulldogs from Trimble Tech on Friday.
Trimble Tech is 20-3 and 6-0 in district. The athletic Ladycat starting five held Granbury to 12 first half points. Coach Mike Pinkerton began substituting more in the second half with even more athleticism for the Ladycats. There was very little drop off in defensive production with the Ladycats holding Granbury to 15 in the second half. Holding opponents to a low point total is nothing new for the Ladycats. In going 5-0 to open district, Aledo held their first five district opponents to an average of only 21 points a game while averaging 70. The game started off slowly for both teams offensively until Aledo senior Kaylee Black hit two three pointers and Megan Wood added another in the first quarter. The outside shooting softened the middle for Justis Szczepanski-Bevers who poured in nine first quarter points on three field goals and three free throws. Meanwhile, the Ladycats shifted their offensive scoring from the front court to the backcourt. She was scoreless in the first half but exploded for nine points in the third quarter hitting three field goals and a three-pointer. Megan Wood scored eight in the quarter to finish with a team high 16 points in the victory.
Aledo held a commanding 49-20 entering the fourth quarter and Coach Pinkerton rested his starters in the fourth quarter.
