So consistent were the Elites, who entered nine individual routines, the lowest score judges gave them was 96. Director Cassie Or- tiz reported the group also won the Sweepstakes Award and the Judges Award, which goes to the team, which received at least a 92 rating in all routines from all judges. One honor, which came as a surprise was the announcement that Ennis was chosen to receive the Applause Award, which goes to the team with the best response to a novelty routine. “This was a complete surprise,” Ortiz said. “Judges do not have to give this award out. It was unexpected and the girls were very excited. “They choreographed the routine for this one (on their own) and it gave them so much satisfaction to know they got an award on something they created.” Other trophies they earned included three See ELITES, pg. 3 The pictured Elites team won top honors in Conroe.

Greg Loudermilk holds the Chamber of Commerce plaque on the right. Midlothian welcomes new nursing facility Justin Tubbs [email protected] Ellis County seniors have a new place to go to receive skilled nursing treatment. On Thursday, the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce welcomed Midlothian Healthcare Center to town with a grand opening ribbon cutting. The facility, which will hold 120 residents, has three living there now, and specializes in nursing and rehabilitation. The building, which began construction nearly a year ago, will welcome more residents if it passes routine state inspections. Terence Boyd, the owner of MHC said the company is family owned and operated. His brother and business partner, Greg Loudermilk, a Midlothian resident, will work as administrator. MHC is the third nursing and rehabilitation center Boyd has opened. He owns one in Fort Worth and one in Houston. The services offered to residents vary, and MHC says that rehab programs are customized to fit the specific needs of each person. “We are different from an assisted living center in that we have nurses working 24 hours,” Loudermilk said. “We have some residents that will come and will never be able to leave.” Those people include diabetics that aren’t able to take care of themselves and people with injuries and health-related issues they won’t recover from. The facilities at MHC include a physical therapy room, state-of-the-art bedrooms for residents, a large dining room, three day rooms for lounging and an outdoor area with shade cover and a fountain. One employee said there will be a grilling area outside soon, as well. Part of the dining facilities is a private dining room for parties or visiting families. Boyd said there will be many people from Midlothian taking residence in the new home, but he welcomes everybody. “We will definitely take anyone God gives us,” he said. Lifestyle amenities include a beauty and barber shop, an activity room and a number of activities uncluding crafts, cooking and baking, musical presentations and field trips. Physician services include dental, podiatry, audiology and optometry, and nurses offer full services. “The people we intend to serve are the senior citizen population,” Loudermilk said. “We look forward to having more residents. Boyd, who lives in Flower Mound, will be moving to Midlothian. “We love it here in Midlothian. My family will be moving here. We have fallen in love with the area,” he said. WAXAHACHIE – Ellis County Human Resources Director Ann Price conducted a workshop on Thursday regarding how the Affordable Care Act may affect Ellis County employee medical coverage. She also gave an overview of the record-keeping requirements for department heads attending the session, which was held at the county courtPerry house. According to Paul Perry, county commissioner, the one-hour workshop, which was attended by nearly 50 people, contained critical information about the ACA, as it will be required of all county employees. “We are about to begin applying ObamaCare and we are trying to be compliant with the requirements,” he said. “The workshop went well,” he added. “There wasn’t any contention. It wasn’t about whether or not you agree with the Affordable Care Act. It was informative and was a productive meeting.” He said Price led the session in a lecture format and allowed for questions. Price is also a Texas Association of Counties Employee Benefits consultant. “All department heads and anyone who handles reporting for the county would benefit from attending the workshop,” said Perry. “It’s important that the county, as a large employer, stay abreast of changes in federal healthcare laws which might have an impact on our operations and our bottom line,” said Carol Bush, county judge. “A failure to be in compliance could result in penalties. As such, we requested that the Texas Association of Counties send a representative to update us on the relevant changes.” The Affordable Care Act will require the county to offer medical benefits to employees who work an average of 30 or more hours per week.

Three seniors to advance as a solo finalist were Gilmore, Muniz and Boon. Boon, however, was later named the overall solo champion. Howard was a junior solo finalist. cont. from page 1 In the kick-master competition, Burden took first place. The Elites will appear at Tuesday’s basketball home finale.

When it comes down to it, these guys are most likely looking at the teams, the schools and the coaches more than the photoshops on Twitter. Fan comments are probably weighed very little because anyone in his right mind wouldn’t make a decision just because a fan decided to superimpose his face inside a TCU helmet. The crazy fan isn’t the only one on Twitter making National Signing Day interesting, though. There are obviously sports writers, coaches and college players that play a role, urging the kids on social media to join the school. I’ve even seen some fans on Texas Tech and A&M fans on Twitter excited about the additions of Donta Thompson and James Lockhart, respectively. The whole college recruiting process is a little bizarre these days because of the technology we have. I think it is weird and sometimes borderline creepy the way that 40- and 50-year-old men try to sway these kids they’ve never met. But even though I try my best to place myself above the hysteria and act uninterested in a high school student’s college decision, it’s only a matter of time before that next big name recruit comes along. Then I’m going to be drawn right back in. Justin Tubbs is a staff writer at The Ennis Daily News and can be reached at [email protected] com.

This was never a big church, at least not the way we talk about big churches today.” What mattered was its impact on global Christianity, with the birth of 19 Pentecostal denominations and movements linked to Azusa Street, said Towns. Today, it’s impossible to study modern faith without discussing Pentecostalism, especially in underground Chinese flocks, booming African churches and among both Protestants and Catholics in Latin America. That’s the kind of phenomenon Towns began studying eight years ago in one of his Doctor used his sermons, and a famous study Bible, for educational, rather than devotional purposes. 7.

Jerry Falwell, used radio, television and mass-media marketing to expand its reach. In addition to Azusa Street’s role in modern Pentecostalism, noted Towns, it’s also important to remember that the movement weakened many racial barriers. A century later, Pentecostalism remains one of Christianity’s most powerful forces promoting diversity in worship and leadership. There isn’t much room for diversity “in what we call ‘one-cell’ churches, with about 85 members or less,” he noted. “However, it’s much easier for believers of different races to blend together in a large, growing church. ... That’s a trend we will need to keep watching in the future.” Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.

Your intelligence will dazzle everyone, and your energy and quick wit will win approval. Let your animated spirit lead to positive attention from a new admirer. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A peaceful, relaxing day will help to reduce the stress you have been feeling. This is not a day for decision-making. Pampering yourself will help free your mind of conflict and worry. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t be reluctant to ask for help. You can’t do everything yourself, and your health will be jeopardized if you try. As much as you want to help others, you must draw a line. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Do what’s necessary to protect your position. Someone you considered an ally will turn out to be after your job or another asset. Attention to detail and the ability to multitask will keep you on top. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Stay in shape. Physical and mental challenges will stimulate your intellect and energy. Too much idle time will make you feel sluggish and lethargic. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your emotions could be quite ragged today. Heated arguments are likely if you are quick to take offense to innocent remarks. Think before you speak. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A joint venture will be a good platform to help you expand on your ideas. An alliance with a trusted individual will bring the finan- cial stability that you have been trying to establish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you are dissatisfied with your current situation, make a change. Waiting for someone else to step up is unrealistic and counter- productive. You know what your strengths are, so take action. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Neglecting your responsibilities will turn out to be quite costly. Do your share without complaining. Your reputation will suffer if you don’t keep your promises. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There will be some necessary adjustments required in order for you to get back on track. Your progress will slow if you are distracted by what others are doing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A casual conversation will lead to a promising partnership. Be clear about your expectations and limitations. Exaggerating now will backfire, leaving you in an awkward position when you can’t deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- You can get your desired results with diplomacy and tact. Heavy-handed tactics or ultimatums will generate discord and disruption. Cooperation will be key in forming a beneficial partnership.

We have a great group of returners and these guys will complement our veterans well,” said new football head coach Frank Tristan. The Lions expect to add more players this spring and summer. Members of the NAIA and the Central States conference, SAGU will begin camp in August with over 100 players. The 2015 recruiting class will bring in nine offensive players and six defensive players. According to Tristan, this group’s quickness is a big positive. “The athleticism of this recruiting class is the best we’ve had in a while. They will increase our overall team speed.” SAGU went 4-6 in 2014 after winning the CSFL title the year before. All home games are played at Lumpkins Stadium and are televised online in HD.

Darling #253 Deputy Page 8 - Friday, February 6, 2015 - Ennis Daily News ‘Little Women’ charms at Ennis Public Theatre J. Niswonger Special to the EDN Anyone who has read Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” will immediately appreciate the charm of Ennis Public Theatre’s stage adaptation. Running on weekends through Feb. 15, Little Women presents a glimpse into 19th century America and the struggles, fears, sacrifices and hopes of four sisters who are left for a year without mother and father. Alcott’s novel addressed not only family life and coming of age, but also dealt with themes of social expectations and gender roles. By carefully crafting her characters, Alcott adeptly presents her own potentially scandalous views of womanhood in a manner that avoids the controversy that comes with championing radical change. The talented cast in EPT’s production effectively captures this tension. The beautifully rendered set enhances the drama and draws the audience into the action. Jordan Parks gives a lively performance as Jo, the strong and willful young tomboy who has little use for social conventions and seeks to live life by her own rules. The character of Jo was patterned after Alcott’s own life, and represents many of her iconoclastic views. Jordan does an excellent job of inhabiting Alcott’s feminist character. In contrast to Jo, Meg accepts the role that society places on her. As the eldest of the four sisters, Meg already views herself as a woman and works to meet all preconceived expectations. Krystal Strickland aptly portrays Meg, who provides a necessary calm- ing and motherly influence over Jo. Krystal’s performance also compellingly conveys the burden associated with assuming the parental role at such an early age. The two youngest sisters in Alcott’s story, Beth and Amy, are played by Olivia Grayson and Cierra Chapman. Olivia does well as the kind and sweet Beth, presenting yet another contrast to Jo’s brash and sometimes hot-tempered demeanor. Cierra portrays the youngest sister, Amy, with great aplomb, creating clever comic effect in the presentation of her vain, self-centered character. Amy strives to excel, but falls short with humorous blunders. The rest of the allfemale cast also stay true to Alcott’s characters and present the audience with a warmhearted tableau of an or- From left to right: Nikki Crosland (Mrs. March), Jordan Parks (Jo), Cierra Chapman (Amy), Olivia Grayson (Beth), Krystal Strickland (Meg). dinary family struggling and triumphing over difficult times. The play is suitable for all ages, and provides the audience with ample opportunity to reflect on the vicissitudes of life and how one might deal with them. Show times are 7:30 Beauty is ‘Skin Deep’ in new play Kelly Kovar Special to the EDN A romantic comedy, “Skin Deep,” opens at 7:30 p.m., Friday, at Theatre Rocks at 505 N.W. Main St. The play is a lighthearted affair, with a thoughtful message about society’s view of beauty and worth. It was written by playwright Jon Lonoff. Leading the cast is accomplished stage veteran Lisa Rosewell, who has delighted audiences by her work in Steel Magnolias and The Lion in Winter. Rosewell portrays Maureen Mulligan, a lonely woman, who is nudged into giving romance one last chance by her attractive sister, Sheila, played by Debra Hinson. It seems only natural that Sheila would set up Maureen on a blind date. Years before, Maureen had sacrificed a possible relationship with one of her charming dental hygiene patients by introducing the lovely man to her sister Sheila, who subsequently married him. Sheila’s husband, played by Larry LeMaster, is a keystone character. His goldenboy looks led to Sheila’s desperation to keep him interested, and to Maureen’s wistful remembrances of “what might have been.” Enter blind date, Joe Spinelli, who sets everyone on their heels. Joe is a breath of fresh air in Maureen’s life. But, how much fresh air can she take? Is she willing to risk her staid existence and gamble on love again? “Skin Deep” will explore all the questions raised, and the audience will be brought along for the ride of romance, decisions, and discovery. Film actor Michael Hall won the part of Joe. His most recent project was The Merchant, a western horror, feature-length film shot on location in Gilmer, Texas. He is represented by Linda McAlister talent. Hall said he is excited to be back on stage and making his debut at Theatre Rocks. The tone of “Skin Deep” is pleasant and the laughs plentiful.
