Rotary Club of Mineral Wells today welcomed Palo Pinto County District Attorney Kriste Burnett, pictured left, as this week's guest speaker. She was introduced by this week's program chair and Palo Pinto County Attorney Maegan Hodgkins Kostiha.

Kriste might have been tempted to address Rotary members in attendance as “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury ...” Those are not words Burnett has been able to use much this past year as the pandemic hampered the ability to conduct criminal trials and proceedings in the 29th State District Court. Kriste recently was finally able to conduct a grand jury session resulting in 51 felony indictments.

 

Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday were given the coaching insights and philosophies of Mineral Wells ISD's two athletics directors, Seth Hobbs and Tony Rafaelle. Scott Elder was this week's program chair.

Seth is the new boys athletics director and Rams head football coach. He will be entering his eighth year in Mineral Wells, serving the previous seven years as defensive coordinator and strength/powerlifting coach. His wife, Joey, is an assistant principal at Mineral Wells Junior High School and they have two daughters. He said the expectations across all the athletics program is win now, but he said growing boys into young men and instilling character are also key aspects for all coaches.

 

With Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month coming to a close, Rotarian and Children's Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County Executive Director Linda Porter-Bradford told Rotarians of the local efforts happening every day to protect children from abuse and neglect. Linda is pictured above on the left with club President Tonya Gary.

The CAC, like all centers across Texas and the nation, is dedicated to investigating and prosecuting those committing acts of abuse and neglect against children, while also working to help the victims heal and recover. In Palo Pinto people involved in all aspects of investigating and prosecuting the perpetrators – courts, law enforcement and various agencies – work together on a multidisciplinary team while the CAC provides resources, facilities and trained forensic investigators and therapists.

 

Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday heard about the recent accomplishments of two of Mineral Wells High School's Fine Arts programs – the chorus and band departments.

A year of COVID slowed, but didn't halt or deter the musicians and singers in those groups, led by MWHS Chorus Director Jeanne Baker, pictured above center, and Band Director Elton Ball, right. They are shown with the day's Rotary program chair, Scott Elder, who also serves as a Mineral Wells ISD trustee.

Both programs saw overall and individual successes this year, including winning sweepstakes honors at UIL competitions for unanimous superior ratings in their respective performances.

Mineral Wells Rotarians today celebrated Rual Perkins' 47th year as a Rotarian. Rual is pictured above with club President Tonya Gary and a cake made in his honor.

Rual became a Rotarian in 1974, the same time he took a job working for Jean Bumgardner at Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Funeral Home. Upon her passing, Rual acquired the business and remains the owner today.

Rual is a past president and honorary Mineral Wells Rotary Club member. He was honored with other past presidents when the club held its 100th anniversary dinner.

Rotarian and Mineral Wells Main Street Manager Myndi Muncy was today's guest speaker. She gave club members in attendance an informative overview and update on the still fledgling Main Street program and projects taking place within the designated Main Street area.

One of her main projects is documenting and providing photographs of the historic buildings within the Main Street zone, which Myndi said totals more than 180 buildings.

She is also working on creating non-profit status for the Main Street project so that it can obtain and raise monies with a goal of becoming a self-sustaining project, using fewer and, perhaps one day, no city tax dollars to operate.
