  1. Volunteers helping rebuild 'You'll be back' - so will Steve's 06/16/2003 By Tom Reedy / Denton Record-Chronicle Kill the fatted calf and put it on the smoker: Steve’s Bar-B-Q Pit is coming home soon. Steve Logan will be serving up his own unique blend of brisket and brusqueness at the corner of Hickory Street and Bell Avenue again. “It’s going to be rebuilt,” Mr. Logan said. “It’s going to be real nice this time, though.” This week, workers will begin demolishing the red-and-yellow-striped shack where he served up falling-off-the-bone tender barbecue for 20 years before fire gutted the building early Easter Sunday. A brand-new, steel-framed brick building will rise out of the ashes in about three months to replace it, thanks to a consortium of area businesses and individuals who teamed up soon after the fire to get Mr. Logan back doing what he does best: smoking meat. “He’s a fish out of water right now, and a lot of folks want that place back in business, and I’m one of ’em,” said Kurt Schmitz of Nuconsteel Commercial Corp. He and his colleague, Lance Neuman, solicited material and labor from area construction companies, and Steve’s will reopen at the same location in the fall. “Man, I never dreamed people would want to help me out this much,” Mr. Logan said. “God is good, isn’t he?” But help is still needed, Mr. Schmitz said. They still lack a plumber, and they need donations to help pay for kitchen utensils, furniture and other items. Mr. Logan began turning out beef brisket, pork ribs, sausage and other artery-clogging delights in 1983. A half-dozen booths ringed the uneven patched wood and linoleum floor, and along the walls, autographed pictures of celebrities hung among the family portraits and newspaper clippings about the restaurant. His smoker was inside the building, and soon a dark patina of woodsmoke covered everything in the place. Some items on the walls were too soot-blackened to be deciphered. “It was tiny and old, and if you rubbed up against the wall, you’d come out smelling like a turkey,” Mr. Schmitz said. “He loved his old smoker, but it had its faults.” So Mr. Logan is designing a new smoker to replace the old one. “It killed me to make that decision,” he said. “I’m going to have to go in there and burn the hell out of it for about seven days before I cook any meat in it.” Mr. Logan said he uses 20 spices in his dry-rub seasoning, which he puts into everything he cooks, including the potato salad. “I’ve been making that seasoning for over 24 years, and every time I make it, I go right by that same recipe,” Mr. Logan said. Mr. Logan got his sauce recipe from a friend in Beaumont by loosening his tongue with some beer. He uses no vinegar, no sugar and no salt, and it takes two days to cook properly, he said. “I’ve never written that recipe down; I don’t have to,” he said. “I can go back there and look at it and taste it a little bit — I go by the smell, too — I know it’s ready then.” But Mr. Logan is not just known for his down-home cooking. He’s also famed for what has been called — charitably — his “intriguing” personality. It’s been said that he’s probably the only restaurateur within two counties who can tell off customers and leave them laughing about it. “He’s a pirate of sorts; there’s nobody like him,” said Mr. Schmitz. The combination of gourmet and grouch has made Mr. Logan a Denton icon over the past two decades. “I’ve been told that, but I don’t see it,” he said. “I think I’m a gripey old bastard, is what I think.” Maybe so, but he’s inviting the whole town to his grand opening when the building is finished. “I plan on doing maybe two pigs and some chicken, and if you want to make a donation, fine, but I plan on doing it for free,” he said. But until that day comes, Mr. Logan — and the rest of Denton — will just have to wait it out. “I loved being in that place; it’s my whole life,” he said. “I’m waitin’.” TOM REEDY can be reached at 940-566-6882.

  3. UNT’s Clark ready for nationals Sprinter competes at 12:05 p.m. in 100 06/11/2003 By Ethan B. Szatmary / Staff Writer Shortly after noon Wednesday, North Texas sprinter Ananka Clark gets to fulfill the dreams of her college running career. Ananka Clark Clark will run in the NCAA Track and Field National Championship preliminaries of the 100-meter dash at 12:05 p.m. at California State-Sacramento’s Hornet Stadium. She will become the first UNT woman to compete in the national track meet since 1988. "It’s definitely a dream way to finish up my senior year," said Clark. Clark heads into the national meet seeded in a tie for 23rd of 31 runners. The senior’s personal-best and team-record in the 100 is 11.48, deadlocked with Rukaiya Halland of the University of Texas-Arlington and Keenan Gibson of Memphis. While Clark’s best is 0.44 seconds — an eternity in sprint races — behind the top qualifier out of LSU, Muna Lee’s seed time of 11.04 — she thinks the races still need to be run. "With a strong week of workouts before nationals, I’m hoping I can do really well," Clark said. "Anything can happen once you get out there on the track." If Clark advances past the preliminaries by finishing in the top 16, then she’ll run again in the semifinals at 8:05 p.m. Wednesday. The top eight runners in the semifinals move on to Friday’s final at 8:55 p.m. ETHAN B. SZATMARY can be reached at 940 566-6869.

  4. This time over the use of Denia Park and the $40,000 upgrade to its softball fields for the Lady Eagles to use for basically one year. It's amazing to me that this woman can't see the benefit to the park of the upgrades, and a quick survey of the 2004 softball schedule will show very few games being played in Denton next year. I am sure the 100,000 seat softball venue will increase traffic, but will it really make the streets unsafe for the residents of Denton? Maybe Denia should succeed from the Denton Union and become a city of their own! Letters to the editor 06/10/2003 One more invasion I was so disappointed to see Tuesday’s article on the front page regarding the University of North Texas bringing NCAA action to Denia Park. Denia is a small park where the city has put softball fields, soccer practice fields and a 300-plus space parking lot with little concern for the families living near the park. The Denia area is one of the few in Denton with so little in the way of usable space for neighborhood residents. There are over 700 people who share a sliver of land not covered by these athletic fields and parking spaces. Our streets are neighborhood streets that will be made unsafe with the increase in traffic. We don’t like public address systems, crowd noise, light pollution, increased traffic and trash any more than the rest of Denton. No contact was made with any residents living near the ballpark or with the Denia Area Neighborhood Group by parks and recreation officials. If money is so tight at UNT, why lay out $40,000 for a one-year use at Denia? Upgrade the fields at Liberty Christian — you already own that space. After the recent Golf Course War, this seems like another invasion. Alice Gore, Denton
  5. Mavs are done. Stars are done. How long til football season?
  6. PMG, this link may help you. There aren't any stadium shots shown on the website, but there is an email address that you can contact the photographer through. I believe his name is Rick Yeatts. UNT Photos I hope this helps.
  7. Why even use them for batting practice and take the chance of "accidentally" picking that bat up during the game. They shouldn't cork them period! I would also add Barry Bonds to the steriod user list, along with a few more I can't think of at the moment that are much bigger now than they were a few years ago.
  8. Hilltoppers claim Bubas Cup, but UNT gaining Mean Green third in annual all-sports cup race 06/04/2003 By Mike McClendon / Denton Record-Chronicle North Texas is apparently moving up in the Sun Belt Conference. North Texas improved to third place in the 2002-03 Vic Bubas Cup, the Sun Belt's all-sports award, after finishing fifth last year. Final team standings were announced by the Sun Belt offices Tuesday. "Anytime you're better than you were the year before, you're in good shape," said North Texas athletic director Rick Villarreal. "Our volleyball team has improved and we won three conference championships in other sports. If you look at the standings [of the Bubas Cup], we actually compete in fewer sports than the two teams who beat us. We're adding softball next year and that will give us an opportunity to score more points." Bubas Cup points are awarded based on performances in all Sun Belt-sponsored men's and women's sports. Each school's totals in the individual sports are then added up to determine the winner. For the second year in a row, Western Kentucky won the Bubas Cup. Western Kentucky, which scored 116 points, was boosted by the highest point total [on a scale of 1-11] in men's basketball, women's basketball and volleyball. The Hilltoppers also scored high in men's cross-country, women's cross-country, men's outdoor track and women's outdoor track. "Basketball-wise, Western Kentucky has been the premier team in the conference for a while," said Villarreal. "Whoever is in the league, you have to chase. If our basketball teams improve next year, like we think they will, we'll be in the running. We're ready to kick this thing off again." North Texas was boosted by the highest point totals in football, men's golf and women's outdoor track. The Mean Green football team finished with a record of 8-5 last season, won its second consecutive Sun Belt title and its first bowl game in more than 50 years. The North Texas men's golf team won the Sun Belt title and finished tied for 17th place at the NCAA Central Regional championships. The women's track team made school history this season. The Lady Eagles amassed a school-record point total to claim its first women's outdoor conference track championship. Latrecia Taylor and Ciji Brooks finished 1-2 in the women's shot for North Texas. Taylor qualified for the NCAA regional meet. Lakisha Gentry recorded the second-longest throw in school history and won the javelin throw with a toss of 137-4. Ananka Clark earned a second-place finish in conference in the 100-meter-dash, and will compete in the NCAA championships later this month. MIKE McCLENDON can be reached at 940-566-6873.

  9. UNT's Clark in NCAA field Sprinter earns one of 11 at-large bids in 100 06/04/2003 By Ethan B. Szatmary / Denton Record-Chronicle North Texas sprinter Ananka Clark received an at-large invitation to the NCAA Track and Field National Championships Tuesday, becoming the first UNT woman to qualify for nationals since 1988. After finishing eighth in the 100-meter dash finals at the NCAA Midwest Regional, Clark shed tears of frustration. She was jumping for joy Tuesday when UNT head track coach Rick Watkins called with the news that she'd be running in the national college championship. "I couldn't believe it," Clark said. "It's incredible, but it's still a little overwhelming right now. I actually cried after the [regional] meet because I didn't make it, so this was a big, big surprise - a good one. It's definitely a dream way to finish up my senior year." Clark will run in the preliminaries starting at 12:05 p.m. on June 11 at Cal State-Sacramento's Hornet Stadium. If she finishes in the top 16 runners, then she'll qualify for the semifinals at 8:40 p.m. The top eight runners in the semifinals qualify for Friday's final at 8:55 p.m. The top five runners at each of the four regionals automatically qualify for nationals, and then the rest of the field is rounded out by at-large bids for the athletes who posted the next-best times throughout the year. Each event has a variant number of at-large bids, and the women's 100-meter dash gave out 11. Clark's personal- and school-record time of 11.48 at the regional preliminaries ranks her 24th out of the 31 runners competing. Since Clark's qualifying time was better than four of the five automatic qualifiers from the West Region, Watkins said he thought she belonged in the field at nationals. "Looking at the times and how some of the other regions went, I thought she deserved to get in," said Watkins. "I'm glad that she did." Over the course of her career, Clark shaved .40 seconds off her time in the 100-meter dash - a huge leap in the event, and Watkins said she sets the perfect example of how devotion to the sport can pay off. "She has worked extremely hard and made herself into one of the top sprinters in the country, so I'm just glad to see that hard work pay off," Watkins said. "It's a really good way for her to end her career. "Over the course of a year, everything doesn't always go well. You've got your ups and downs. She still came in here every day, and did what she needed to do to get to nationals. That's the kind of example you want set for everybody else." Clark's just happy she can be the one to set that example. "I know a lot of my teammates are really proud of me - it gives them something to look forward to," said Clark. With Clark as an example, maybe it won't be 15 years until North Texas sends another woman back to nationals. "We believe in ourselves through her," said junior Rhonda Williams, who qualified for regionals in both the long jump and as a member of the 4x100 relay team with Clark. "She's so motivated, and she's always giving us encouraging words. She's helped me out a lot. I was feeling really down about the way I was running last year, and she was always there helping me out. I was so motivated this year, and I thought I would make nationals. I didn't. I almost made it, but I didn't. She [Clark] gives me hope I will next year."
  10. They is a ridiculous excuse and this incident goes hand in hand with his outburst at Rick Reilly over the steriod question. Juicing his body and his bat, no matter how nice he is to the fans, does not equate to a "class act."
  11. This was copied on another post within the Mean Green Athletics posts. It is a copy of a recent Denton Record Chronicle article with quotes from RV. I'm not complaining about it, in fact, this is the type of cooperation that has been needed between the City of Denton and UNT for years.
  12. Sure, and they aren't squawking, because UNT is providing $40,000 in upgrades to two fields at Denia Park.
  13. Great news Coach. You are getting us off to a great start.
  14. Track & field: Mean Green has finals on mind 05/30/2003 By Ethan B. Szatmary / Staff Writer The North Texas track and field team takes 10 men and 11 women to the NCAA Midwest Region Track and Field Meet Friday, so head coach Rick Watkins said the Mean Green has as good a chance as any team in the region. "We’ve got a really big group going," said Watkins. "We’ve got about as many as any other team, so I’m hoping we can run well and send a few athletes to [NCAA] nationals." With the preliminary races beginning Friday morning at the University of Nebraska’s Ed Weir Track, Watkins said several UNT competitors have strong chances of continuing into Saturdays’ finals, and maybe the Mean Green can qualify its first athlete to nationals since Detron Woodson earned All-American honors in the 100-meter dash in 2001. "I think if we run well, we can qualify several for the finals, and in the finals anything can happen," said Watkins. "Arthur Cox stands a good chance in the 400 meters, Ananka Clark could do it in the 100 meter dash and the 200 meters. Both Jessica Henderson (women’s discus) and Ryan Lancon (men’s pole vault) come in highly ranked, so I’d say they’re both contenders, too." The qualifying rules for this year’s NCAA regional track meet have changed from previous years. This year, the top five athletes in each event in each region make the national meet in Sacramento, Calif., June 11-14. The NCAA also hands out at-large bids, with those bids spread as evenly as possible over all events until the total field for the meet reaches 544. Watkins expects one or two at-large bids per event. In previous years, the NCAA invited the top 16-18 competitors nationwide, without restricting the amount of athletes from any given region. Watkins said that he and many coaches are not pleased with the change. "In the men’s 100-meter dash in the Midwest Region, there are 24 qualifiers. In the West Region, there are seven. Even with the at-large bids, there are going to be some people left out of nationals who should be there, and some people will be there that shouldn’t. "Those are the rules that we have to live by, though. Very few of the coaches like it, but we still have to do the best we can, and that’s what we’re going to try do this weekend."
  15. Yeah, what's up with the response. (Just another blatant attempt to pad my numbers).
  16. UNT finished the first round of the regional in 4th place but fell out of contention after that. We finished in 17th place in the regionals last week. Congrats to the team and Coach Jackson for a great year. It's even more amazing when your home course was the Eagle Point Goat Ranch.
  17. Well, we finished in a tie for 17th place 8 shots out of qualifying for the NCAA Championships. But, we still had a great year, and I am proud of the young men on this team. They did us proud.
  18. I'll pay for your time, the tape, and the shipping. Heck, you could probably make a few extra bucks off this little service if you wanted to.
  19. Come on Chip, lighten up a little! Your awfully sensitive to be one that likes to dish out the jabs so often. Remember, you get what you give.
  20. Why don't you just set a price and sell it through this website? As UNT96 noted, you would save some fees with this process and would probably sell many more copies than you ever would on eBay.
  21. This little test in Mean Green Sociology isn't going to work, because I will be reading all of his posts. Mainly for his warped sense of humor, but also because he has a never say never attitude about UNT athletics. Mr. Spears did a great job for NTSU under Coach Fry, and he still has that passion for his alma mater. Give em' hell GG!
  22. I hope he goes out winning the Sunbelt gold medal in decathlon. One hurdle after another Determination, passion keep decathlete going 05/09/2003 By Tim MacMahon / Staff Writer University of North Texas decathlete Lupe Florez barely remembers when he started running as a young boy in West Monroe, La. — just that he wore a pair of work boots that was a couple of sizes too small. DRC/Stacy Cooper North Texas decathlete Lupe Florez will compete for the last time at the Sun Belt Conference track meet at Fouts Field this weekend. Mr. Florez has overcome personal hurdles to compete at the collegiate level. Dee Hogan, a neighbor and the father of one of young Lupe’s friends, saw such passion and dedication in the boy that after a few weeks of watching Lupe jog around town in those boots and greasy blue jeans, he broke down and bought the boy a pair of running shoes. "I’ve been running ever since," said Mr. Florez, a 24-year-old senior who will compete this weekend at the Sun Belt Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Fouts Field. The meet opens with the decathlon at 9:30 a.m. Friday. Mr. Florez was forced to stop running midway through the 1,500 meters — his final event — during last season’s Sun Belt meet but managed to finish the race. He placed fifth in the decathlon, helping the Mean Green win the team title. He had been competing all season with anterior and posterior compartment syndrome, conditions that cause severe pain because muscles become too big for the sheath that surrounds them, in both legs. The pain was so severe that Mr. Florez, who has a tattoo around his left thigh depicting the 10 events of the decathlon, considered dropping every event but the pole vault and javelin. Blood tests, taken as a precautionary measure before he underwent operations on both legs to correct the conditions, revealed that Mr. Florez was chronically anemic. The operations were delayed for a few months, but Mr. Florez’s dedication to return as a decathlete never wavered. "He’s a fighter," said Mr. Florez’s wife, Fawn. "It was very difficult because track is what he loves. He just lives and breathes it." The medical problems were far from the first hurdles Mr. Florez had to overcome to succeed. He grew up dirt poor and without guidance from his parents, who he said had "personal problems." But the self-motivated Mr. Florez managed to become a star in football and track at West Ouachita High School and enrolled in the U.S. Army after graduating. However, Mr. Florez was sent home soon after arriving at boot camp because he couldn’t do a push-up. He broke a bone in his wrist lifting weights as a high school junior, and it never healed properly because his family didn’t have insurance and couldn’t afford proper medical treatment. "This is a kid that never caught a break," said Mr. Hogan, the neighbor. "If you ever heard a hard-luck story, this is it." Courtesy photo Lupe Florez and Dr. Fawn Cox were married Aug. 17, 2000. Mr. Florez worked for the next year at his grandfather’s garage, repairing 18-wheelers and scrounging together enough money to enroll at the University of Louisiana-Monroe. He wasn’t academically eligible to run track, but he kept in shape and remained active in the sport by volunteering to help the coach at his high school. Then one weekend that summer, Mr. Florez’s life changed for the better. He took a couple of his students to the Don Hood Pole Vaulting Camp at UNT. While there, he met Bethany College coach Derek Hood, Don’s son. Derek Hood, impressed with Mr. Florez’s work ethic as much as his athletic ability, offered him a scholarship to Bethany College, an NAIA school in Lindsborg, Kan. "I thought about it for about 10 seconds and said, ‘all right,’" Mr. Florez said. Mr. Florez also met a pretty blond woman that weekend named Fawn Cox, a friend of Derek Hood and the aunt of Travis Wilson, one of the boys that Mr. Florez coached. After a visit to Six Flags, Mr. Florez strolled into Dr. Cox’s chiropractic office in Fort Worth and offered her a stuffed dog that he won. Dr. Cox was initially cool to Mr. Florez’s romantic desires because of an age difference — she is a dozen years older than him, though Travis fudged a couple of years on both ends when playing matchmaker. Mr. Florez persisted via the telephone. He also moved in with her brother and Travis’ father, Grant Walker, and won over the rest of the family that summer. By October, Dr. Cox accepted Mr. Florez’s proposal to marry him. "We would have never even clicked if he wasn’t so mature for his age," said Dr. Florez, who still uses her maiden name in her professional life. "He grew up so quick and so fast. He has a lot of character because of what he went through in his upbringing." Mr. Florez moved to Texas, and the couple were married Aug. 17, 2000. He enrolled at UNT and walked on to the track and field team, though he didn’t compete his first year. Dr. Florez has encouraged her husband’s passion for track and field and comforted him last season while he struggled with injuries. "She’s my angel, man," Mr. Florez said. "She’s supported me ever since I’ve been in college — financially and emotionally." This weekend’s meet might be the last for Mr. Florez, who holds the UNT record in the javelin with a throw of 189 feet and 7 inches. He is the fourth-ranked decathlete in the Sun Belt this season. "He’s not extremely talented," said UNT director of track and field Rick Watkins, "but he just works so hard and is so determined that he’s made himself a pretty good decathlete." Mr. Florez said he has completely recovered his endurance after getting through last year’s medical problems and has about 90 percent of his strength and speed back. "I just want to go out there and have fun and be confident the whole meet," Mr. Florez said. "The biggest thing for me is that I want to be able to put my all into it and not have my body hold me back." Mr. Florez is considering trying out for the Mexican Olympic team, for which he is eligible because his grandfather has born in Mexico. However, he has already graduated and wants to take some of the financial burden off his wife. He plans on becoming a high school track coach. "There’s always going to be kids who need a little bit more guidance and support," Dr. Florez said. "Coming from the background that he has, he’s going to be able to help them. He’s going to be able to touch some kids’ lives."
  23. IMHO, he's not ready for the NBA. His offensive output is too shaky with a nonexistent outside shot. He needed at least his junior year to further develop.
  24. We added 4 strokes to our lead heading into the final round today. Golf: UNT men lead by 14 strokes entering final day 04/23/2003 Staff report NICEVILLE, Fla.— For the second consecutive day, the North Texas men’s golf team blistered the course at the Bluewater Bay and Resort to extend their lead at the Sun Belt Conference Championship to 14 strokes after two rounds. The Mean Green fired a three-under par 285, powered by two rounds of 68 from Brad Besler and Zach Atkinson. UNT sits at 566, ten-under par after two rounds of play. The closest competition to the Mean Green is Denver, which has a two-round score of 580. Besler is the overall leader at seven-under par 137 after he followed up his first-round 69 with a tournament-best 68 in the second round. Atkinson jumped to second place with his second-round score of 68 and sits just shots behind Besler for the tournament lead at a five-under par 139. Freddy Espericueta is tied for eighth place at two-over par after firing a second-round 75. Thomas Kulcak and Brad Gibson are also both in the top 20. Kulcak fired a second-round 78 to drop to 15th place, and Gibson shot a second-round 74 to climb to 17th place overall. On the women’s side, Randi Gauthier and Andra Lancaster remain in the top five after the second round of play. Gauthier and Lancaster both fired a second-round score of 75. Lancaster sits in fourth place with a two-round total of 148, just five shots off the lead. Gauthier is at 150 after two rounds and is alone in fifth place, seven shots behind leader Alena Sharp of New Mexico State. The UNT women remains in fourth place after shooting a second-day total of 313, one shot better than the first round. UNT is only two shots behind Denver for third and six shots behind second-place Arkansas-Little Rock. Defending champion New Mexico State is the overall leader after two rounds with a commanding 28-stroke lead heading into the final round. The final round of the conference championship begins at 8 a.m. Wednesday. North Texas Scores Men 1. Brad Besler 69 68 137 -7 2. Zach Atkinson 71 68 139 -5 T8. Freddy Espericueta 71 75 146 +2 15.
