Resolutions?

By Kate Whitney+

Happy New Year! The beginning of a new year is always a wonderful time to begin new things. This year, start the year off right by incorporating some of these healthy habits. Eat healthier. Make sure you eat balanced meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and low-fat dairy. Stay on a budget. This year, plan out your spending for each month and try to stick with it. Credit card debt or compulsive shopping can get you in trouble in a hurry. Try saving your pennies for the future.

Sweetie, the water lady

Cranfills Gap and Mustang may be small communities, but they are home to an icon as well-known as Fort Worth. After 41 years of service to Mustang Valley Water and to her community, Ruth Tucker has decided to retire. Everybody knows her. Just ask anyone around; they have all heard that friendly voice saying, “Sweetie, this is Ruth, your water lady.” Join a grand celebration to honor Ruth on Jan. 7, from 2-4 p.m. at the Cranfills Gap Community Center. It’s a “Come & Go,” but don’t go too soon. Bring a few stories about Ruth. There are plenty of those.

Celebrating comfort care

By Simone Wichers-Voss

When curative measures have been exhausted and a terminally-ill patient’s pursuit of treatment changes to the desire for care, support and freedom from pain, aggressive treatment, hospital beds and distress, hospice care is viable choice. In Bosque County, the Lutheran Sunset Hospice has been around for 10 years – a milestone worth celebrating. On Dec. 15, at the former Bella Veta building in Clifton, Santa came to visit, to add to the festive occasion, there was a table filled with goodies and the chance to sit down and chat with care givers, management or with friends.

Grelle & Greene hosts ‘in the outdoors’ artists workshop

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Rain is a blessing in Central Texas, but just when you least expect it, it tends to mess with outdoor activities.

This was also the case during the 25th annual Bruce Greene and Martin Grelle Plein Air artists’ workshop. The French Plein Air means “in the outdoors,” but rain kept Greene and Grelle with the 20 participants to their workshop indoors in a beautiful hay barn Nov. 5 at the Circle 13 Ranch.
