Five-Year-Old Cole Howard was torn away from his family when he was taken captive during an Indian Raid on his family's farm. In time, Cole came to love his Indian Family.

Seven-Years-Later, soldiers came to take his Indian family to the reservation and return Cole to his Birth Parents. But the white man's way of life was no longer his. Lost between two lives, he set out on the journey to outrun his past and maybe find his future.

Wild West Art Fest.


Local author Carrol Haushalter joins children in a stick horse racing game at Fox Park last Saturday during the Wild West Art Fest. The event included art displays, historical demonstrations, vendors, tall tale storytelling, live music and more----all with a western theme. Before their stick horse race, the children enjoyed a story of cowboy legend Pecos Bill told by Haushalter next to a pretend campfire.

When five-year-old Cole Howard was taken during an Indian raid he not only lost his family, but his white heritage. Seven years later, soldiers came, sending his Indian family to the reservation and him back to a world he no longer belonged in. Lost between two lives, he turned to cattle driving to outrun the past and maybe find his future.

Cowboy Poetry and Fun - Deer Lake Designs


Reaching out to those people who feel far more comfortable in a saddle than a pew.

Some people in Texas were having trouble with all those shalls and shall nots in the 10 Commandments. Folks there just aren't used to talking in those terms. So, some folks out in west Texas got together and translated the "King James" into the "King Ranch" language:

Ten Commandments, Cowboy Style posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie, TX

1) Just one God.

2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.

3) No telling tales or gossipin'.

4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.

5) Put nothin' before God.

6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.

7) No killin'.

8) Watch yer mouth.

9) Don't take what ain't yers.

10) Don't be hankerin' for ye buddy's stuff.
