Pearsall native’s research enhances major exhibit at Witte Museum

If there is one word to describe Gary Perez, perhaps it is “chosen.”

First, he was chosen to be the treasured first child of Reymundo and Frances Perez of Pearsall, who brought him home in as a baby from St. Peter-St. Joseph Children’s Home in San Antonio.

Then as a young man, he was asked by the City of Austin to be part of a diving project to help save the endangered Barton Springs salamander by clearing lifechoking algae from the floor of the popular springs.

In 2005, when Amada Cardenas, matriarch of the Native American Church in Mirando City, passed away, Perez found himself caretaker of the church’s holy lands.

Later, because “I had been exposed to the Native American Church for so long and understood the nuances of the ceremony and the language that was being used,” he said, “I was invited to take a look at this particular piece of rock art by a researcher out in West Texas.”

HomeTown

By Janice Odom

While green bean casserole is a traditional go-to side dish for a lot of cooks, in my family the demand is always for a zucchini and Velveeta cheese casserole that my mother started serving years ago.

I’m not sure where she got the recipe, but it’s an easy dish to make – and zucchinis can be found in your grocery store’s produce aisle yearround. They’re also very low calorie, have antioxidant value, are an excellent source of potassium and have lots of vitamin A.
