Daniel 'borrows minds' during
Terrell unit graduation exercises
THE POLK COUNTY ENTERPRISE, THURSDAY, JULY 7,1994 - PAGE 3A >A"
LIVINGSTON - "I’m not here
to waste anyone's time," began
Col. Howard Daniel, keynote
speaker at Windham School Sys-
tem vocational graduation exercises
on Friday at the Terrell Unit of
Texas Department of Criminal Jus-
tic. "I'm here to borrow your minds
for the next 20 minutes, to leave
something on them that will make
you and me better people when we
walk out of here."
Daniel told the inmates they
would not hear any criticism from
him. "You've had some misfortune,
but that’s not a problem," he said.
"You need to leave all of this be-
hind and press on to better things.
"Upon your return to society,
don’t expect a welcoming party or
a ticker tape parade,” warned
Daniel. "It’s character you must
rebuild and you must do it one step
at a time."
Daniel, a motivational speaker
who regularly challenges audiences
of all types to do the best they can
and to make a positive contribution
MOSCOW - A house at Hardin's
Hideaway was destroyed by fire
before it was discovered Saturday
Virgil and Wanda Goodwin,
owners of the two bedroom wood
frame home, had left around 7:30
a.m. to go shopping in Groveton.
The couple's three children and
grandchildren who stayed at the
house were also npt at home at the
time of the fiire. /
Around 9:30 a.m. Stanley and
Deana McCarty drove by the
Goodwin's home, located 3 miles
from Hwy. 59, on their way to a
barbecue at a friend's home. 'There
were no walls and no roof when we
to society, advised the men to use
their mistakes as stepping stones to
gain success. Success is possible to
anyone, according to Daniel. But it
doesn’t happen by accident. It is
achieved only through careful
preparation and hard work.
Goal setting - daily, weekly,
monthly, yearly and lifetime - was
addressed along with making good
choices about attitude and relation-
"Excellence is the name of the
game," said Daniel, "No one can
stop you from being successful.
And no one will be to blame but
you if it turns out to be otherwise."
Daniel informed the graduates that
they can expect criticism whether
they are successful or not and it
will be up to them how they deal
Stressing that racial slurs and in-
sults are still in existence, Daniel
reminded the men, from various
cultures, that they do not have to
make them a part of their lives by
choosing to respond.
Finally, Daniel told the graduates
to use their hands and minds to
build their lives one brick at a time.
"Learn to do what is right and stick
to values," Daniel said. He cited
those values to include leadership,
ethics, and integrity.
"Last but not least, when you
start living the messages you’ve
heard here today, you will always
find yourselves floating somewhere
near the top."

LAKE LIVINGSTON - The
wake from a boat passing at high
speed apparently caused a small
boat to capsize in Lake Livingston
Sunday, according to the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 6-10
Commander Jim Courtney.
At 6 p.m. Courtney received a
call from the Polk County Sheriffs
Department regarding a capsized
boat reported off Indian Hill Penin-
sula. Courtney met the patrol vessel
"Dragon" at Indian Hill public
ramp and arrived on the scene at
6:35 p.m. The "Dragon" was
piloted by Bill Young.
The capsized boat had already
been towed away by a good
Samaritan. An interview with
eyewitnesses revealed that the
small boat contained a couple who
were engaged in fishing, according
to the commander. They were
swamped by a wave from a
"Cigarette" boat passing close at
high speed. Courtney later reported
the matter to sheriffs department
personnel, who indicated they will
The accident victims are un-
known. They may, if they wish,
report the matter to the Polk Coun-
ty Sheriffs Department or to
Courtney at 646-5902. Courtney in-
dicated he would be glad to turn
any information over to the
sheriffs department and to Coast
Guard Group Galveston. ,r
Boaters are advised that they are
responsible for any damage caused
by their wake, the commander said.
If the offending vessel operator is
identified, he or she is subject to
prosecution under federal law,
which provides for a fine of up to
$1,000 and imprisonment for up to
not more than one year for the
criminal offense of reckless or
negligent operation of a vessel
which endangers the life or proper-
ty of any person. The offending
vessel operator may also be
proceeded against for failing to
stop and render aid.
"Every boater on the lake is there'■ ’
to have fun at their favorite sport,
be it fishing, water skiing, swim-
ming, cruising or whatever,” s
Courtney said. "Just remember, -a 3
sport is a sport only as long as
doesn’t interfere with someone
elsc’s sport. When it reaches that
point, it is no longer a sport, but A
nuisance. As big as this lake is^iw
there is absolutely no room far*:^
horseplay. Let's keep it safe.” .•
