 Bill presented his accomplishments so far during his term as Mayor of Kerrville. He also answered questions ask during the question and answer time.
  
 
Clint flipped a coin and Mayor Bill Blackburn won the toss. He elected to have David Baker go first.
 
 

 David Barker has over 40 years of cumulative experience in a broad range of businesses including engineering, construction, manufacturing, project management, procurement, finance and accounting, emergency planning, business restoration, start-up, testing, quality assurance and control. He also taught project management at two universities. He has exceptional skills in several engineering disciplines in addition to physics, chemistry and metallurgy. Most recently Mr. Barker started The Barker Consulting Group which provided a broad range of professional business services to many industries primarily focusiing on management challenges and business improvement processes. He is considered an expert in project management, organization, execution and in turnaround assignments across many disciplines for projects that are identified as global in scale.

David was previously employed for 10 years at Dril-Quip, Inc. where he held several key positions as head of Savannahmanufacturing, project management and the Aftermarket Business Unit where he supervised over 500 highly skilled engineers and technicians. As Director of the Aftermarket Business Unit he was responsible for the overall aftermarket support and services which included customer refurbishment projects, capital drilling equipment repair and recertification and field life management services. Additional responsibilities included global service for rental tools, writing of technical service manuals, personnel training and certification of field service technicians.

SoTex Nuclear ProjectPrior to joining Dril-Quip, Inc., Barker had a progressive career in the nuclear power field working on the NS Savannah Program, the world's first nuclear powered commercial vessel. He served as Project Manager on the South Texas Nuclear Project for Houston Lighting and Power Company and was a key manager in bringing the plant to its current operable status where he was directly responsible for 600 employees and as many a 10,000 sub-contractor employees. In addition, he managed major architectural and construction programs on large commercial real estate projects throughout the state as well as several coal fired electric generating stations for the Reliant Energy family of companies (HL&P and CenterPoint Energy). In these assignments his career was progressive rising to the level of COO of CenterPoint Energy Management Services. The Chairman of Reliant Energy at that time identified his career as being distinguished and exemplary. Mr. Barker also worked for the H.B. Zachry Company in San Antonio, Texas prior to joining HL&P.

David also completed the Executive Development program at The University of Idaho.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

At this time in Kerrville's history when we are facing difficult challenges, it is my goal to bring 40+ years of business and technical experience and work with the Council & City Manager to produce long-term viable solutions.

  • We must ensure a safe, long-term water supply based on sound engineering and financial practices.
  • We must have responsible growth across all sections - including residential & commercial - benefiting ALL citizens.
  • We must be innovative, and open to the public, when considering all real estate developments - and certainly not at the expense of our existing residents and taxpayers.
  • Kerrville's infrastructure is in need of immediate attention as well as the development of a long-term capital improvement plan.
  • I propose an objective review of the recent LONG-TERM WATER SUPPLY PLAN to ensure proper supply and safety concerns are understood and presented clearly to the public.
  • All annual budgets proposed by the many city departments must be carefully prepared and based upon ongoing needs, while taking into account new operating and maintenance requirements.
  • The Council has a duty to ensure that all funds are consistent with the annual approved budget. The conduct of the Council must be in accordance with all Texas Governmental Codes.
  • Work with the City Council and City Manager to improve intergovernmental relationships.
  • We must assure cost effective use of long-term debt.
     

    He presented his plan for Kerrville if elected. Answered questions during question and answer time for both.

     
The program last Wednesday was the Hill Country College Fund. Each year, funds are raised to help deserving area students pay for tuition at Schreiner University. 
 
Schreiner University President Charlie McCormick provided opening remarks and noted there are several new and exciting things on campus. Schreiner Institute is a new program designed to help students obtain a military academy appointment. Dr. Frazier leads a new program called The Texas Center, aimed at educating students and the community about all things Texas. And, the new section of the river trail in Kerrville now has a trailhead at Schreiner University. Although not yet open due to Covid-19, there will be a beer garden and gathering pavilion for students and residents alike at the trail head.
 
Mark Tuschak, Vice President for student recruitment, provided some history of the Hill Country College Fund.  He explained that Karen Kilgore, who will retire this May from Schreiner University, had the original dream of the college fund forty one years ago, and it has helped many students who otherwise could not afford to go to Schreiner. 
 
We heard from three inspiring students who expressed their appreciation to all who donate to the fund.
 
Annie Wallace is a sophomore Sports Management major. She plays softball and likes being in a small school environment where she can be involved in numerous campus activities, including student government.
 
 
Chris Flores is a first year student. He is a great example of a non traditional student, who worked first and now is attending college. Chris overcame a lot of adversity in his life, is a psychology major, and helps out as a shelter monitor at the Salvation Army.
 
 
Miranda Spires really appreciates the HCCF because along with the G.I. Bill,  it allows her to concentrate solely on school.
 
 
Please consider helping deserving students at our hometown University:
 
 
 
 
    
Clint Mores introduced our guest                                      Representative Andrew Murr
 
  Representative Andrew Murr was first elected in 2014 to represent District 53 in the Texas House of Representatives. The district includes Bandera, Crockett, Edwards, Kerr, Kimble, Llano, Mason, Medina, Menard, Real, Schleicher and Sutton Counties. An eighth generation Texan, he was raised on a ranch in Kimble County, and attended school in Junction.
 
  Representative Murr attended Texas A&M University, receiving a bachelor degree, summa cum laude, in Agricultural Development with an emphasis in economics and policy. Following graduation, he worked toward his master's degree at A&M and earned his teaching certification, completing his student teaching in Mason. He subsequently graduated with highest honors from Texas Tech University School of Law. In 2008, Representative Murr was elected Kimble County Attorney. However, he was appointed to the position of County Judge, due to a vacancy, before he was sworn in. His kids are twelve and one year old.
 
 
 Legislature of the State of Texas, operating under the biennial system, convenes its regular sessions at noon on the second Tuesday in January of odd-numbered years. The maximum duration of a regular session is 140 days. There are appoxmently 9 to 12 thousand ideas for bills brought up every session. Only about 20% get passed
 
The Texas budget shortfall of about 2 billion dollars. This was due the the Covid-19 shutdown. 
The speaker of the house is retiring and Andrew is not looking to fill that positio
He sponsored House Bill HB-297

AUSTIN— Today, the Texas House passed HB 297 which would eliminate the school districts’ maintenance and operations property tax and replace it with a more efficient sales tax.

“Texas’ economy is the strongest in the country — owing in large part to the commitment of policymakers to the Texas Model and strong conservative fiscal leadership,” said Kevin Roberts, Ph.D., executive director of the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “HB 297, if paired with fiscal restraint in budgeting, would sustain our prosperity.”

HB 297 would establish an interim committee to study the most effective way to move from a maintenance and operations property tax to a sales tax system by January 1, 2022.

“The Foundation has long supported the elimination of property taxes in favor of a less burdensome sales tax system,” said Vance Ginn, Ph.D., senior economist and director of the Center for Economic Prosperity at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “The Texas House’s passage of HB 297 provides an excellent opportunity to eliminate nearly half of the costly property tax burden along with almost all of the disliked Robin Hood system. This legislation should make its way through the process and to the Governor’s desk so there can be a robust discussion during the interim of how to make Texas an even greater economic juggernaut for prosperity.”

U.S. Congressman Chip Roy visited our Rotary Club last Wednesday via zoom, and gave an overview of current affairs in Washington. He has been focusing on the fiscal year end and is working with the other members on a funding plan for the government through December. 
 
Recent highlights of legislative action and answers to some questions:
 
Congress passed successful funding of the PPP bill last June, and they are now working on expediting the forgiveness part of the loans to businesses.
The President will (and now has) nominated a Supreme Court judge Amy Coney Barrett.
Riots, protests: The federal government can step in to help quell riots if federal property is threatened. Private citizens can sue if states don't protect citizens life and property.
Fracking: He is concerned about the recent attempts to limit or ban fracking, because this could affect jobs in the oil and gas industry in Texas.

The Museum opened in 1983 as the Cowboy Artists of America, with works on display by the Cowboy Artists of America. In 2003, the museum changed its name to the Museum of Western Art to expand the type of art and artists in this genre, including women artists and Native American artifacts.

I will report back when I know more. If we can meet all of the safety requirements, we will be back at the Kroc Center in November.

Clint Morse introduced our guest speaker                      Dan Wheat
 
 
Dan started Rotary 65 years ago in Beaumont Texas. Dan did point out that out of that time there was 3 years he did not attend Rotary since they were living in a small town. Dan is the correct man to tell us about fires.
He has been in 3 different fires in 3 different hotels.
 
Dan noted that the decision to flee or hunker down can be made for Hurricanes, Tornados, Floods or Fires like going on in California. He told us about when he and family we staying at the Conrad Hilton Hotel the time it caught on fire. The hotel had 1,544 rooms and 30 floors. It a grand place for sure. In 1928 the Oscar's were held there. After falling on hard time it was used as a Technical training school for the US Army Air Corp. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilton_Chicago The Democratic National Convention was held there in 1968.
 
January 26th 1970 about 6:45 Dan heard fire trucks in the distance. They stopped at the hotel and started going in. They were on the 13th floor and brother and family were on the 19th floor. They then started to head to elevators. One opened and they started down. When they got to lobby they went outside to see what's going on. They saw ropes made of bed sheets hanging out windows. The ladders only went up to 7th floor and the fire was on the 9th floor. The brother was going to start down the outside stairs that were bolted to building. They passed fireman going up with hoses to put out fire on 9. When they finally made it to the lobby they met up with Dan and family.
 
There was a group of 40 deaf kids from a school staying at the hotel with only one chaperone. Wow they were good boys and all but two made it safely out of the building. These two were the only victims in the fire. See the links below the hear their stories.
 
 
After thinking about taking the elevator to get down Dan says that's not a good idea. These days just wait in your room until someone comes to rescue you, or take the stairs. It's a very good idea to find the stairs close to your room when you check into anywhere.
 
 
 
 
 
  
Tivy High School football coach David Jones provided the program on the upcoming season of football and other sports. Plans have been made and remade over the last six months, and we are now finally nearing the start of the season. Tivy football starts out with a tough pre-season, with Dripping Springs on September 25th, Calallen follows and then Killeen Shoemaker as their home opener.
 
The football team will be able to start practicing in pads on September 7th, and on the 12th they'll have an inter squad scrimmage. Although some schools have experienced a decline in the numbers of players, Tivy has seen an increase from about 150 players last year to 175 players this year. This is the second largest number since David Jones has been here. In addition to the varsity, there is a junior varsity and two freshman teams, with 11 coaches.
 
The football players are scanned each day before practice, and are asked a series of questions about COVID-19. In addition to those precautions for the players, the football tickets for fans will only be available online, and at a reduced capacity. The home side usually accommodates 3,000 to 4,000 fans, but with limited seating and proper spacing, there will be only about 1,300 fans. Live streaming of the games will be available for the first time this year due to the pandemic.
 
So, support the local teams, either in person or watch the game live. Go Antlers!
There will be a blood drive coming soon, and details will follow.
 
 
The Labor Day Walk-A-Fun is scheduled for Labor Day, September 7th, and has been adjusted to meet the requirements of the City of Kerrville amid COVID-19 concerns.
 
It will be at Louise Hays Park, and Rotarians will be handing out cold water and sharing the story of Rotary  from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.. We will be able to post our awareness signs along the River Trail and hand out invitations to NEXT YEAR'S EVENT! We will not have groups of more than 10 people and will be wearing masks and following CDC guidelines for social distancing.
 
Service Above Self Award
 
In early August we presented the "Service Above Self Award" to Maggie Rector, a Kerr County 4-H student as part of KC 4-H annual awards night. Maggie was selected by her peers to receive the award, which is based on the Rotary motto. She was unable to attend the awards banquet, so we recently met to take a photo to commemorate the event.
 
Maggie has performed nearly 100 service hours, even during a Pandemic and is an active member of three local service organization boards, in addition to volunteering on many levels. It was an honor to meet her.
 
'Thank You' note received
 
We recently received a "Thank You" note from scholarship recipient Liz Twiss. I want to share with each of you her words to our club. She wrote:
 
"Kerrville Rotary Club, 
 
Thank y'all so much for your generous scholarship! I appreciate it way more than you think! Without your generosity, college would be even tougher. Thank you for seeing the grit in me to pursue my dreams, while positively representing y'all. I promise to give nothing but my best in consideration for y'all. Thank you again.
 
Sincerely,
 
Liz Twiss"
 
Concession Stand help needed
 
Past President Stephanie Miller has asked for help manning the Ingram Tom Moore High School concession stand on Friday nights during home football games.
 
She would appreciate help from membership or businesses. Volunteers can wear club or business shirts for visibility. It would mean a lot to her and the athletes to receive some help.
 
If you or your business would like to provide the assistance she is requesting, please contact her at Steph_hillview@yahoo.com.
 
What could be better than spending a night at a high school football game?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Prayers go to all the area teams who are starting their seasons,
