Adventurer travels across the country on a mule to see the other side of America

There are really two kinds of worlds out there, according to Katie Cooper.  There is the world you see on television, and there is the actual world she is seeing from the back of her mule while riding across the country. She traveled through East Texas last week.
Ms. Cooper said this is a lifelong dream.
“I wanted to do this since I was a kid, and for my 50th birthday I decided if I ever was going to do it I had to start planning,” she said. “I’m not getting younger, and the world is crazier, and I wanted to know what it was like without all the noise. I wanted to connect with the world in a whole different way with an animal as transportation.

Hooks pastor Genevieve House happy to serve God

by Pam Kumpe

Pastor Genevieve House of Hooks has been a pastor for 13 years, although she has served in full time ministry for more than 30 years in varying roles.
She started out in ministry as an aspiring missionary at Zion Temple C.O.G.I.C. Church in Conway, Ark. under the leadership of Bishop Frank Anderson, Jr. in 1979, and moved to Hooks in 1981.
House believes God chose her for ministry because He has a sense of humor and she gave him her availability, along with her heart.
“Perhaps, God looked past all my faults and hang ups and saw who I could be in Him. Like the book of Jeremiah says in chapter one, before I was formed God knew me in the womb. It’s never about talent, abilities, education or stature with God, He’s looking for availability. He takes flawed vessels, those He can use in service. And of course, I’m so glad He does,” House said.

Fill Our Shoes

By Taylor Pickle
DeKalb High School

This past week, the other senior DeKalb High School Cheerleaders and I have been teaching this year’s tryout material to upcoming freshmen and underclassmen preparing to try out for the squad on May 4th. It is such a joy to be a part of tryouts again this year, but such a strange feeling knowing that I will not be one of the girls that will be given the privilege to support and represent the De Kalb Bears this upcoming year.
It is such an honor to be a part of something bigger than yourself and form a bond as a team or a squad. Whether it is cheerleading, twirling, athletics, UIL, band, or art, my wish to every 8th grader that will be coming up to DeKalb High School this fall is that you will not be caught in the shadows of these opportunities.

By Lilly Rose
Junior High Reporter
Redwater ISD

   Redwater’s junior high students went above and beyond this year, as they raised money for Pennies for Pasta, a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
   This year, as with the past three, Kevin Jones’ and Mark Satterwhite’s classes were the top earners. They raised a total of $2,537.90.
 “Age and Experience go together,” Satterwhite joked. ”Older people know how to deceive younger people.”

Merriman named Teacher of the Year at Hooks

by Pam Kumpe

Tracy Merriman is the latest recipient of Hooks Independent School District High School Teacher of the Year.
Merriman walked into the high school office the Friday morning of April 19 after the selection was made. High School Principal Shane Krueger jokingly asked her who she’d paid off. He then congratulated her and told her that she had been selected.
“The staff was notified on our district email and the announcement posted on our school marquis in front of the high school. I took a picture of it because they may be the only time I see my name in lights.” Merriman said.
