Page 4C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press * January 23, 2013 + + COURTESY PHOTOS Chili cook off benefits veterans Members of the Kyle AMVETS post competed in a chili cook-off last weekend benefitting disabled American veterans. First place was $500. AMVETS member Byron Pope, a chef with H-E-B and Air Force veteran, said the secret to good chili is the combination of aroma, color and aftertaste. He used several peppers in his concoction and said no one pepper should stand out more than the others. Pope is shown here with Heather Fulton, daughter of Kyle volunteer firefighter and AMVETS member Mike Fulton. "t is with heavy heart that we say goodbye to our .good friend, Robert (Bob) Barton. Barton passed away on Saturday morning at the age of 82. Having been raised in the Buda area and living almost all his life in Hays County, he was a walking his- torian on the towns of Buda, Driftwood, Kyle, Mountain City, Manchaca and all points in between. His family roots go deep into Hays County and it was always such a delight to hear stories of his ances- tors and his life growing up in Buda. Working with Bob at the Free Press was also a great experience for all who had the pleasure of doing so. When he walked into the office, it came alive with a buzz of activity. Maybe it was his loud voice that made it possible for people to know he was there because the phones started ringing and folks walked in to just visit with Bob. He also had a way of getting you to do the work that he wanted done and somehowyou did it for him so x~dlingly. It was his idea back in 1983 to form a senior citizens non- profit association for the Buda community. In March of 1984, by-laws were approved and Onion Creek Senior Citizens, Inc. was established. In 1986 Barton deeded a partnership BUDA BITS interest in land he owned on Bartons Crossing to the senior citizens and traded adjoining land to the count, with the requirement that it be leased to the senior citizens. Hays County officials then agreed to move a metal building from the old San Marcos Hospital grounds to the site in Buda at the corner of Bartons Cross- ing and FM 2770. A portion of the metal building was to be used for the justice of the peace and law enforcement offices with the greater part to be the home of the senior citizens. Last weekend the Onion Creek Senior Citizens moved into their newly constructed 6,750-square-foot facility built on the land Barton had do- nated to the seniors years ago. The senior center is located at 420 Bartons Crossing. Thank you, Bob Barton, for being such a great friend.
