historic local windmill It’s All About the Windmill, a fundraising spaghetti dinner and
program, has been organized to help make repairs to the historic
The windmill was damaged recently during a heavy spring storm
that included strong winds, hail, lightning and heavy rain. The
aging windmill structure atop the 65-foot tower was knocked to the
The windmill dates back to 1866, just one year after the Civil War,
when J.A. Hartman erected a windmill over a 45-foot, hand-dug well
to provide water to the cotton gin that would bear his name. Among
the first such contraptions to be installed in Rockwall County, the
Hartman Mill’s steel tower was erected on oak pilings to extend its
elevation and was topped by an 8-foot blade system and gearbox.
It stood its ground, tall and proud, until 1900 when it was moved to
the top of the hill at the corner of Hartman and Renfro Streets where
a new and improved steam-driven cotton gin was located. At its new
location, the windmill crowned a 65-foot well. The well served the
needs of local residents as well as the gin.
On July 26, 1984, the historical windmill was moved once again
to its present location in the Harry Myers City Park behind the
Manson-Lamoreaux-Hartman House, which serves as the Rockwall
County Historical Museum. It is loved and viewed by many and
this story is told to children on school tours as well as families and
individuals who visit the museum to learn about our history of
Following the damage done to the windmill, the Rockwall County
Historical Foundation is in the process of repairing the 400-lb.,
8-foot-wide blade span of the windmill fan mechanism. Jim Mills
has tirelessly spent many volunteer hours straightening the blades
and reassembling the parts to the fan.
The Hartman windmill may be the oldest remaining windmill in
the county and is a treasured link to the county’s history and the time
when cotton was king.
The fundraising program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 at a cost

Fish die-offs are the natural result of triple-digit temperatures and
reduced oxygen levels in lakes.
Most oxygen depletions occur in warm weather – June through
September. Warm water holds less oxygen than cold water, and
when the air and water temperatures rise, winds that help mix
oxygen within the lake decrease. The oxygen level in lakes can drop
because of this lack of mixing at the surface level of the lake.
Additionally, fish require more oxygen as water temperatures
increase, according to the release.
The City of Rockwall is monitoring the fish die-offs at lakes
throughout the municipality, according to the news release.

Carla Brooks, Stephanie Abadie, zumba instructor Isiak Holiday and Vicki Lucius are shown getting
ready for one of Holiday’s zumba classes at the First United Methodist Church of Heath. In an effort to raise
money for the 2012 Relay For Life event, Holiday is offering a free week of zumba lessons to anyone who
makes a $5 or larger donation to his church team, Walkers of the Light.

Isiak Holiday’s expanding
role lends support to Relay
by Mary Thacker
Isiak Holiday Jr. was born and raised in Huntsville. “Out of the prison system,” he is quick to add.
Holiday was raised with two brothers and two sisters by parents who have been married 39 years and
still reside in Huntsville.
From the time he was very young, Holiday confesses to being “a music nerd.” He took his first piano
lesson at the age of 12, practicing his technique on his family’s old, upright piano.
“Half the notes didn’t work, so I had to imagine the music,” Holiday said.
He served as choir director of the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church at the tender age of 14.
“I plunked along on the piano, teaching mostly by rote, because our small congregation couldn’t afford
to buy sheet music,” he said.
He started attending Sam Houston State University in 1991, but didn’t receive his diploma until 2008.
“I had two classes left for years and years,” Holiday said. “But I was putting myself through college
and had to work.”
“I don’t think I could find a better pl

“I told her that those white people aren’t going to hire me,” he said. But last month Holiday celebrated

This year Holiday has taken on a new role at First Methodist Church as a certified zumba instructor. He teaches classes from 7:30 a.m. to
8:30 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Using simplified moves to make the workout more accessible to all age groups, he encourages his participants to increase and lessen the
intensity of the workout depending on their fitness level.
“I tell them to find their happy place,” he said with a smile. “We

FUMC has been involved in Relay For Life, the signature
fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, since 2000. In
fact, Holiday led the first Relay For Life choir, which performed
at the 2008 Relay and around the Metroplex at several American
Cancer Society gatherings. Since then he has continued to participate
in Relay with his church team, the Walkers of the Light.
In order to raise money for the 2012 Relay For Life, Holiday is
offering a free week of zumba lessons the first week in October in
honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to anyone who donates a
minimum of $5 to Walkers of the Light. Donations can be made in
person at any zumba class.

exemption rules in effect
Beginning Sept. 1, individuals seeking to apply for any type of homestead
exemption in Texas will need to comply with a new application process.
The recent session of the Texas Legislature imposed rigorous new
standards of mandatory disclosure for those property owners who apply
for any type of homestead exemption starting Sept. 1.
In order to receive a homestead exemption for property tax purposes,
applicants must now provide a copy of their Texas driver’s license or Texas
state-issued identification card and a copy of their vehicle registration
receipt with their application for a homestead exemption. Additionally, the
addresses shown on each of the documents must be the same as the address
for which the exemption is sought, according to Rockwall County Chief
Appraiser Ray Helm.
Those who do not own a vehicle will be required to submit a notarized
affidavit certifying that fact and provide a copy of a current bill received
from a utility company. The address of the utility bill must be the same
address as stated on the application for the homestead exemption.
This new requirement takes effect Sept. 1 and is required on all residential
property homestead exemptions:
• General Residence Homestead Exemption
• Over-65 Residence Exemption
• Disability Residence Exemption
• 100 percent Disabled Veterans Residence Exemption
• Extension of exemption for a surviving spouse
• Exemption for manufactured (mobile) home
Each of the programs cited above have additional requirements for
qualification. However, the common standard is that all such applicants
must provide the additional documentation as noted before regarding
driver’s license, Texas issued identification card, motor vehicle registration
and utility billing receipt.
For those seeking homestead exemption status on a manufactured home,
the applicant must also provide documentation as noted below:
• Statement of ownership and location issued by the Texas Department of
Housing and Community Affairs
• A copy of the purchase contract or payment receipt that the applicant is
the purchaser of the manufactured home or, a sworn affidavit that :
• The applicant is the owner of the manufactured home
• The seller of the manufactured home did not provide the applicant with
a purchase contract, and
• The applicant could not locate the seller after making a good faith

Hawks hope for repeat victory
over Garland Lakeview
Who: Rockwall-Heath Hawks vs. Garland Lakeview Centennial Patriots
Where: Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9
Records: RHHS is 2-0 after coming behind to win 20-14 at Frisco Wakeland Friday, Sept. 2. The Patriots’ 37-34
home loss to Sulphur Springs that night left them 0-2.
History: The teams met for the first time last season, when the Hawks took a 31-17 victory at Homer B. Johnson
Stadium in Garland. Lakeview was driving toward a game-tying touchdown, when Parker Wood intercepted a pass
and returned it for a Rockwall-Heath TD. Mario Henderson also picked off a pass and scored with it.
Injuries: Hunter Seales and Brandon Holquin will not play for RHHS.
What to expect: Opponents and the media are beginning to notice the Hawks’ defense, which has allowed just 23
points in two games.
The offense hasn’t yet matched the defense’s intensity, but showed more signs of life against Wakeland than in the
19-7 opening-game home victory over West Mesquite.
RHHS head coach Mickey Moss said, “Lakeview is a little like West Mesquite. They’re athletic, but they throw
and catch better. They’ve got a good balance of running and throwing.”
The Patriots have a fairly standard offense, but their defense is more risk-taking.
“They’ll roll the dice,” Moss said. “They do lots of blitzing. They’ll bring people from many different directions.
We’ve just got to get a body on a body and we can get things done.”
The blitzing pass defense could help the Hawks’ running game. Moss said, “We can get a body on a body and
create some openings.”
Lady Hawks bounce back to
beat Royse City, N. Mesquite
As they have all season, the Rockwall-Heath Lady Hawks bounced back into the win column after their loss to
Rowlett Friday, Sept. 2.
The five-game loss – 25-17, 15-25, 17-25, 27-25, 15-11 – to the Lady Eagles was just the third this season for
RHHS (28-3), and the second to 5A Rowlett.
The Lady Hawks had come back after losing to Rowlett in the semifinals to finish third in the Garland ISD
Tournament. And after losing to Denton Guyer in the Lewisville/The Colony Tournament final, Rockwall-Heath
swept its opponents to win the Frisco ISD Tournament the next weekend.
This time, the Lady Hawks won two matches Tuesday at home. Royse City put up quite a fight, losing in five
games 25-8, 18-25, 25-12, 11-25, 15-10. North Mesquite started to play well late but dropped a three-game decision

Fulton’s dilemma: To score or not to score
The Fulton School football team keeps finding itself in places where it hasn’t been before.
In the season-opening game Aug. 26, the Falcons scored a Fulton-record 85 points.
Most recently, they won a game by six-man football’s 45-point mercy rule at halftime for the first time.
That was a 54-6 victory over Fort Worth Hill School Friday, Sept. 2, at Rockwall-Heath High School.
“It was kind of frustrating because Fulton has never been at this point,” said Falcons head coach Josh Johnson. “We
could have called two running plays and one pass play and scored every time. That made it tough for us to make a
real good assessment.
“We didn’t want to get anyone injured. Right at the end of the second quarter, we spiked the ball to get another play.
Hayden Leverett went 51 yards for a touchdown to make it 45(-plus) points.”
That was the only carry for sophomore Leverett, who had scored six touchdowns in Fulton’s 85-59 opening-game
The Falcons’ defense was greatly improved against the Hawks.
Johnson said, “Defensively we came out and were really aggressive. Coach (Matthew) Burgy talked about bend but
don’t break. They were stepping up on big, money downs.”
Included were interceptions by Tanner Treadway and Jasten Reese for the second consecutive week.
Treadway also scored a touchdown on each of his two running plays, totaling 38 yards, and threw a 52-yard pass
on a reverse to Reese for a TD. Reese’s two catches went for 85 yards and two touchdowns.
Terrence Kennell ran for a score and caught a 53-yard scoring pass from Qwe’terrious Conley, who was 3-for-3 for
105 yards and two TDs. Anthony Aaron also scored a rushing touchdown.
Johnson said, “We had exceptional offense. Defensively, we got after them pretty early. The special teams did a
pretty good job. They recovered an onside kick.”
The Falcons (2-0) next will play Wylie Preparatory Academy in a game that has been moved to 7:30 p.m. Friday
at Founders Park in Wylie.

Lady Jackets break
even on southern trip
Rockwall’s volleyball team has been winning one match and losing one for
most of this season.
So it was little surprise that on the Lady Jackets’ trip to South Texas last
weekend, they split six matches. Those results left their season record at
Despite breaking even in matches, it was a successful trip overall. Two of
their losses came against the teams that finished first and second in the Santa
Fe Tournament, and RHS won a game in each match.
The first tournament match Thursday, Sept. 1, was a 25-19, 22-25, 25-13
loss to Waller, which went on to win the Santa Fe title. After defeating Sam
Rayburn, Rockwall played a match Friday at Mont Belvieu Barbers Hill.
The Lady Eagles, also taking a day off from the tournament, defeated RHS
in four games and went on to finish second at Santa Fe.
On Saturday, Rockwall swept its first two matches – from Bridge City (25-
14, 25-13) and Goose Creek Memorial – before losing two games to one to
host Santa Fe.
The Lady Jackets are scheduled to open their District 10-4A season Friday
night at Richardson Pearce.
