Afternoon activities included adult and children’s bingo, waterslides, bungee jumping and an auction.

However, this Labor Day stood apart from others. After the parade, Principal Jeanie Birkenfeld  was presented Nazareth High School’s first ever Lone Star Cup.

“Thank You, Nazareth”

From playwright Karen Setlowe

As a socially engaged artist in residence in Nazareth on four different occasions over the last three years, I’ve been privileged to be welcomed into the community to research and develop my multi-media dramatic comedy “Gift from the Panhandle,” which portrays the disappearing way of life in the Texas Panhandle with a focus on Nazareth. As you know, Nazareth personifies how a small town can not only survive but thrive, and it acts as a beacon of light for struggling small cities across America and overseas.

Countless people in Naz have shared their time, help, stories and historical information. You’ve welcomed me to invade your private spaces, family gatherings, reunions and public holiday events, including participation as a volunteer. Most importantly, you’ve shared friendship, private stories, trusted me with secrets and shared your unique spiritual relationship to your community and to each other. You’ve taught me that faith, family, land and education, including athletics and the arts, are at the heart of a vital community.

Hopefully, I’ve captured what you’ve shared in my play. It’s finished; now it needs a couple of years of script fine tuning and multi-media editing. Without all of you, this project would not have been possible. In this spirit, it’s my intention to use community members for the first production of this work, which I would like to take place in Nazareth; and, eventually, I will turn ownership of “Gift from the Panhandle” over to the Nazareth Museum for generations to share.

UIL Lone Star Cup Presentation Scheduled for Nazareth High School

                The University Interscholastic League will honor Nazareth High School on Sunday, September 3 for its 2017 Conference 1A UIL Lone Star Cup victory. The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation will take place during a community parade in Nazareth which begins at 10:00 a.m.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup rewards the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”

With state championships in academics, girls basketball and tennis, state runner-up in girls cross country, and regional finalist in boys basketball, Nazareth earned 76 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2016-17 school year. The Swifts also earned points in UIL football and baseball.

The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to six high schools, one in each of the six UIL classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A), based on their team performance in district and state championships. The winning schools in each classification receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL. The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 school year.

The presentations for 2017 UIL Lone Star Cup winners Argyle, Dallas Highland Park and Conroe The Woodlands will occur later this fall. Wall will be presented with their trophy on Friday, September 1. Sundown was presented with their award earlier this fall.

Starting School: Mr. Waldo

                GOOD MORNING, NAZARETH! I want to welcome students, parents, family and friends.  While we still have some roof repairs, the staff has been working extra hard to have the school as ready as possible.

Habits—“Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”  Quoted to Benjamin Franklin.

Adolescents are notorious for not getting enough sleep. The average amount of sleep that teenagers get is between 7 and 7¼ hours. However, they need between 9 and 9½ hours (studies show that most teenagers need exactly 9¼ hours of sleep). Many teens have a technology playground in their bedrooms: television, computer with 24/7 Internet access, cell phone, electronic game stations, and so forth. These technologies provide instant and constant contact with peers that impact sleep and your ability to fall asleep.

The curfew set by the extracurricular training rules and maybe earlier by your parents are in your best interests and well-being.  You will need a good habit of sleep and routines when you get on your own as you begin full-time jobs and post-secondary life.

Attitude—Not say much here.  Mrs. Birkenfeld had an entire theme in the past.  But your habits including rest for your brain and body are paramount to a positive and healthy attitude.

Talents–A talent is something that you are born with that gives you unique skills and abilities. It can be strengthened and practiced.  The talents and gifts set us apart from each other. When you discover the talents that God has given you and you use them to glorify Him, you will experience a full life!

Skills—Last year in the boy’s basketball playoff game against Shamrock that was played in Panhandle, we had many old friends from Sunray there to watch the Swifts and Jake.  “How is Nazareth so successful in everything?”  was the frequent question.  You have been given many talents and gifts, but work and perfecting your skills is the key to success.  It is an expectation that has been modeled by your parents and their parents.  The past several weeks I have observed individuals and groups running and preparing for the upcoming cross country season without coach supervision—but with the expectation to come ready and in shape when school starts.  I often work late in my office, and I hear all the cars driving by my window and office coming to work in the evening as they prepare for an upcoming judging contest or other leadership contest.  When I leave the office, I see the cars of a few students that are still in the gym after scheduled practice working on free shots, three-point shots and other skills that set them apart.  What is the key to Nazareth’s successes?  HARD WORK while practicing skills and refining talents!

Belgians Enjoy Time in Nazareth

                On August 17-25, the Debranbander Family traveled to Nazareth to visit their friends, Darryl Birkenfeld & Joann Starr.  Darryl met Miren and her family during his studies in Leuven, Belgium back in the mid-1980s, and they have maintained a friendship ever since, with visits back and forth between the two countries.  Before arriving in Nazareth, the Debranbanders spent 3 weeks traveling around 10 states and visiting 8 National Parks in the western U.S.!  While in Nazareth, they attended Sunday Mass at Holy Family Church, rode horses with Lane Birkenfeld, went to Caprock Canyonlands State Park, helped harvest garden vegetables, and enjoyed a 2-day excursion to NM to visit Chimayo and the Plaza in Santa Fe.  They returned to their home in Leuven 5 days before the 3 teenagers start back to school.

                On Monday afternoon, members of the community joined 4-H participants to view the partial solar eclipse from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Those in attendance used special glasses to watch the sun, created sun-inspired crafts and enjoyed snacks.

The youth made bracelets with beads that change color in sunlight and painted paper plates to look like the sun. They used plates decorated as the sun, moon and earth to demonstrate what was happening during the eclipse. Using two pieces of parchment paper and crayons, they created sun catchers. They made s’mores by wrapping the ingredients in tinfoil and using a hairdryer to heat it and melt the chocolate and marshmallow.

Community History: The Ballpark

                The Nazareth Ballpark is currently located east of the school along Highway 86, although it has not always been. Originally, the only baseball field in Nazareth was behind the school, and so, that’s where the Swifts played their games. Then, in 1957, Elmer Schulte and Paul Venhaus decided to talk to George Schacher about buying some of his land for a new ballpark separate from the school. The cost of the land is not known, but it was not near as expensive as land is today. After that, the new field was built at its current location. Many of the citizens in Nazareth helped do all of the tasks needed in order to complete the ballpark, such as putting in the lights and putting up the fences. A few years later, the concession stand was built, but until then, drinks and food were just sold out of a pickup.

At the beginning, the Ball Club took care of all the maintenance for the park, but around 1975, the community took over by having a designated ballpark committee. The key move that really increased the quality of the ballpark was when the advertisement signs across the outfield fence were put up. They really helped to keep the whole ballpark going. Now, Suds and Sounds is a benefactor that brings in money for the park. The ballpark is still currently used for baseball, t-ball and softball games and tournaments. The most recent addition to the ballpark is a t-ball field that was completed this summer. The land for this field was donated by the Leroy Pohlmeier family.

Celebration of Life

                Rita Woetovech, longtime Nazareth resident, celebrated her 89 birthday in a special way this past Sunday.  Though Rita is currently a resident at Castro County Nursing & Rehabilitation in Dimmitt, her son Glen Kleman arranged to have an afternoon celebration for her at one of her former homes in the village.  The party was hosted by Mark and Vera Hoelting, current owners of the home that formerly belonged to Joe and Blanche Birkenfeld in Nazareth, a quarter-mile south of Holy Family Church on St. Mary’s Street.  The celebration brought together nearly 40 “first cousins” mostly from Nazareth, Amarillo, Canyon, and the Lubbock area, to celebrate their Aunt Rita’s birthday, along with several old friends.  Everyone enjoyed seeing the marvelous renovation that preserved many features of the original home, and reminiscing about family Christmas parties and other occasions that brought them to Grandpa Joe and Grandma Blanche’s house.  It was as if time stood still for a few hours, and the living and deceased were rejoined in a brief communion, that will be made perfect and eternal one day in heaven.
