By Brett Voss
Meridian Tribune

When the University Interscholastic League’s biennial realignment came out last February, Bosque County high school football fans were excited to see six-man football get an all-county district for the first time since 2000. So fittingly, when the dog days of summer arrived, the Bosque County 11-man football teams got together to form a league of their own as well. Beginning this Thursday at Jacket Stadium in Meridian, the Clifton Cubs, Valley Mills Eagles and Meridian Yellowjackets will assemble for the Bosque County Summer 7-on-7 League. Over the last several years, both Clifton and Meridian participated in the Hico 7-on-7 League.

A whole different ball of wax

By Simone Wichers-Voss

A wax museum usually consists of a collection of wax sculptures representing famous people from history and contemporary personalities exhibited in lifelike poses, wearing real clothes. During the last week of school, on May 25, third-graders of the Clifton Elementary School had their own “wax museum.” Their personas had a “push” button – they would recite the life’s history of their famous person.

Perfectly piously preposterous

By Simone Wichers-Voss

A farce is a comic play that uses highly improbable situations, stereotyped characters, extravagant exaggeration and slapstick to move its audience to chuckles and laughter. The Bosque Arts Center Tin Building Theatre kicked off the final show of its 34th season May 7 with the hilarious two-act farce, “Drinking Habits.” The play-featuring a talented cast of Tin Building Theatre veterans and newcomers - transports the audience to a tiny convent The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing.
