Personal Blog: Mary Wallace

Just a couple of months under 53 years ago I joined the KDH staff as a young reporter/staff writer, assigned to Fort Hood and police department news, among other things. My prior experience was a couple of years on the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner and some column work with Jessen's Weekly (in Alaska, where I grew up). In summer of 1961 I was living with my grandparents in Belton, Rev. and Mrs. Robert Wallace.  I only worked for KDH a few months, then decided to go to college at an engineering school in Los Angeles. Fun times. . . I wonder if anyone besides me remembers?

Polocrosse: A Fun Family Sport

Polocrosse: A Fun Family Sport

In Australia, 1939, a hybrid sport was born. This game is a combination of polo and lacrosse, with a few modified rules to create a safe and fun environment for players of all ages to play together on a team. This game divides players up by skill level, so a beginning youth player will be on the same team as a beginning adult player, and an advanced youth will play alongside an advanced adult

Even though polocrosse resembles both of it's parent sports, there are a few differences. One of the first differences a player will notice is the use of the same horse throughout the whole game, unless an injury happens, whereas in polo, players will use multiple horses.

Another noticed difference between polocrosse and polo, is the racquet, which is similar to that of a lacrosse stick. Headgear similar to polo is worn, instead of the heavier lacrosse helmet. One of the main differences that sets polocrosse apart from both polo and lacrosse, is that there are only 3 positions per team. They are called number 1, 2, and 3. Each position has a specific space that they play in, and they must pass the ball to another player in a different position to move the ball toward the goal posts.

Children and adults alike can enjoy this sport together. Anyone who knows how to ride a horse can learn to play polocrosse, and playing this exciting hybrid game will help any rider become better on their mount.

I want my daughter back

                My name is Jennifer Lynn McDonald. I agreed in a civil contract to allow my daughter Shannon Elizabeth Obrien to be held in temporary custody via her Paternal (not really paternal or any DNA to my daughter, just an agreement that James Joseph Obrien IV signed her birth certificate as we were in a relationship) Grandparents Jim and Linda Obrien III. I was moving back to Florida and signed an agreement for 6 months temporary custody. The intentions were that when I established stability, a home and place of employment, I would get my daughter Shannon and bring her to Florida where she was born. Since then, I did come back as agreed with Janet Pruitt hired as an attorney. I was told that I would bring my daughter back to Florida so I acquired a car seat and clothing and diapers as needed to transport Shannon back via rental vehicle to Florida. Linda and Jim O’Brien’s attorney prevented a hearing by stating that the Judge was a visiting Judge and Not a regular Coryell County Judge. I was not permitted to  even have a hearing. First, Linda and Jim Obrien told the visiting Judge I did not communicate with them and then I proved that to be a lie by bringing in copies of email conversations between myself and the O’Brien’s email address. Since then I have felt powerless. For a year and a half Linda and Jim did not allow me to visit  or talk to Shannon, due to the visit we encountered at the courthouse where I was bullied to not have a hearing. I have been trying to appease Jim and Linda Obrien, feeling I have no choice but to do whatever they want me to, in order to see my daughter and in hopes they would just give her back to me. Linda led me to believe if I accomplished certain tasks in my life agenda, she would bring Shannon to visit me, then she said Shannon could stay for a summer, and then come live with me. Linda told me that I must acquire my Registered Nurse Degree and get a Job as an RN in order to get Shannon back. Well I have been working full time and raising my other two  children, I married and he has 3 children. I have been going to State College of Florida School part time for four years. Now Shannon is 8 years old. After completion of this semester I have one more Gordon Rule Math course Liberal Arts Math, to complete and I will graduate with my AA Degree. I am then to transfer to a private college Galen University in Saint Petersburg to obtain my Registered Nurse Training and acquire my Associate in Science Degree. Once I complete the State Board Exam, I will be able to obtain employment as a Registered Nurse. Here is the problem. I am doing what I agreed upon verbally and  contractually. Linda and Jim Obrien are not . Neither their contractual agreements are honored, nor their verbal promises, and continual excuses of why I cannot have my daughter back. Finally, I am coming for a visit scheduled for November 15-17. Linda Obrien told me that she did not ever want to give Shannon back to me because their life is revolved around Shannon. I told her that she genetically is not Shannon’s Grandmother, but she still insists I never get custody of my daughter. I feel helpless. My rights are gone. I feel like my daughter was stolen and I will never get her back. The intentions of the 6 month  temporary custody was just to be temporary. I feel like I was tricked and my daughter has been taken. I feel like it doesn’t matter if I become a doctor, the law should uphold the contract agreement and a social contract, according to Thomas Hobbs, morally should be withheld and protected by the state(court). The truth should be honored in a moral society and I should be given my daughter  back. Will you please tell me why I am not protected by my intentions to be Shannon’s mother. Since this, James Joseph Obrien, who signed the birth certificate died in Jim and Linda Obrien’s home. He died of Pneumonia at the age of 42 years of age. I think it was from overdose from the pain medications he received from a physician and combination of alcohol. That is why I was relocating away from Texas to Florida, because of the drugs and alcohol with their son James. I wanted to make a better life for Shannon. I don’t deserve to lose her forever for improving my bad situation. If you look in your court documents for their son James J Obrien IV you will see that after I left in 2007, James got in a lot of violent legal troubles.  Please answer my plea and tell me what I can do to have my daughter.

 The joy of Christ, which is an infinite fulness of delight, is in them. They bathe themselves in the bottomless, shoreless sea of infinite beatitude. That same joyful rest remains for us. It may not be far distant. Ere long the weeping willow shall be exchanged for the palm-branch of victory, and sorrow's dewdrops will be transformed into the pearls of everlasting bliss. "Wherefore comfort one another with these words." - Spurgeon
