WE WANT TO HEAR
AUSTIN, Texas- It has been 10 years since seven thousand people came out for the Texas Parks and Wildlife’s first
open house to thank the people who support wildlife conservation in Texas. This Oct. 6th and 7th, close to 50,000 people
are expected to come to Texas Wildlife Expo X from all parts of the state. The event features more than 100 activities
ranging from shooting sports and fishing to birdwatching and mountain biking. Significantly, while costs have continued
to rise in the past decade, the even remains free to the public through the support of major corporations, vendors,
conservation groups, and other sponsors. Texas Wildlife Expo has grown into the nation’s largest free family festival,
focusing on wildlife, and parks, and several fish and wildlife agencies in other states are now looking to the Expo as a
model to produce similar events, according to Ernie Gammage, Expo director for TPW. Texas Parks and Wildlife, the
Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and the Weatherby Foundation International partnered to create a manual on how
to stage outdoor festivals that has since been distributed to all the states. The Governor of Alabama and more than 20
employees are coming to the Expo this year to observe and learn how they might produce a similar event in their state.
“Expo is the premiere outdoor event in Texas,” Gammage said. “Where else can you catch a fish, skeet shoot, mountain
bike, bird watch, kayak, see native Texas wildlife and rock climb in one location in one day - for free?” Over the years,
both the focus and the goals of the Expo have evolved, according to Gammage. It started out as a hunting and fishing
event and has become an all inclusive festival covering natural and cultural resource conservation and recreation, with
a primary goal of promoting family participation in outdoor activities and raising awareness of the conservation ethic.
Fly fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, bird watching, living history, and rock climbing have been added to attract a
more diverse audience and introduce visitors to a wide range of outdoor activities. Texas Wildlife Expo remains free to
the public through the generous support of sponsors, including Anheuser-Busch, Inc., BP Amoco, Chevrolet Suburban,
Compaq Computer Corporation, Dow Chemical Company, Cemex, Mossy Oak Camouflage, Academy Sports and
Outdoors, Austin American-Statesmen, Austin Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Careco Multimedia, Chevron Companies,
Coastal Conservation Association of Texas, Weyerhaeuser, and Winchester Ammunition. TPW, conservation
organizations, sponsors, and more than 3,000 volunteers will host Texas Wildlife Expo 2001. From archery exhibitions,
and birds of prey demonstrations to fly fishing instruction and special activities for the youngest children, Expo is
designed to keep visitors of all ages entertained for hours. New displays and activities include a Global Positioning
System Satellite Challenge and the Outdoor Kids Challenge. For the new Outdoor Kids Challenge, each child that
completes a prescribed number of diverse activities at the Expo will be autom atically entered in a drawing to win an all
inclusive hunting, fishing, or camping trip, plus a premiere equipment package. “The event really is designed for the
entire family,” Gammage explained. “Nearly all of the activities are open to both adults and children, and we have many
activities specifically for younger children.”Perennial favorites such as John Karger’s birds of prey demonstration,
shooting sports, rock climbing walls, and trout and catfish fishing tanks remain the anchors of the event. Recent additions
bolstering the educational component of Expo include displays and activities to promote the importance of water in
ecosystems, wildscaping instruction, and the junior angler program to teach youth how to fish. Growing crowds at Expo
over the years have presented parking challenges; but after reaching near capacity last year, coordinators plan to install
a new temporary entrance into the hayfield parking area to reduce congestion at the entrance. The free shuttle, from
Nelson Field at Reagan High School in northeast Austin, is still the best way t1 get to the Expo, according to TPW. For
more information on Texas Wildlife Expo and the free shuttle system, visit the Expo Web page at

O [America], Return Unto The Lord
Thy God... Hosea 14:1
There's been much talk about prayers and remembrances for
the tragedies that struck our nation on September 11. Prayer
is great, as long as we remember to whom we are praying: the
only God, the one who created us, who came to earth in the
form of a man, and his name is Jesus Christ. We must also
remember that part of our prayers should focus on repentance.
Why? Our nation has left God, and if we don't return to him,
we will slide into depravity, destruction, and oblivion. As a
reminder, here are a few things, any one of which will turn
God against our nation, and will cause him to ignore pur prayers:
Abortion (see last week's article).Homosexuality (also called
sodomy, named after the Sodomites, whom God destroyed
with fire because of their wickedness).Witchcraft, the
pervasiveness of which is evidenced by the number of Harry
Potter books, toys, etc that are in Wal-Mart now, and
probably in the schools, not to mention Pokemon (the "pocket
monsters"), Halloween paraphernalia, environmentalist
religion, etc Pornography at the local convenience store, on
the Internet, and on the Cosmopolitan and most of the other
magazines in the supermarkets .Immorality: how many people
do you know around here who are having affairs, or who are
unmarried and sleeping around? The Bible calls this variously
"adultery" and "fornication. "How about drunkenness? Or
people who are religious but don't do what the Bible says?
Following are a few verses poignantly addressing our present
situation. 1. Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it
cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But
your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and
your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with
iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered
perverseness. Isaiah 59:1 -3It's not that God doesn't want us to
pray, no, he greatly desires us to seek him, but seeking God
includes following his standards for ourselves as individuals,
and all of us as a nation. Therefore also now, saith the LORD,
