Dr. Spotz’s concert honors Spanish composers

By Nathan Diebenow

Berlin, Buenos Aires, London, Moscow – and now Clifton, Texas, may be added to the honored list of world cities where Dr. Leslie Spotz’s hands have graced the piano keyboard.

Fifty-five people turned out for the genius, live performance of the Tarleton State University full professor of music at the Bosque Arts Center’s Tin Building Theatre on Saturday, January 14.

Truly, they were in for a treat – a full sensory experience that left the audience in awe.

After introductions by Karen Thomasy and Beth Fry, both of the Bosque Civic Music Association, Dr. Spotz jumped into the chair in front of a 1929 Chicory piano to kick off the hour and a half show.

Community rallies in aftermath of storms

By Nathan Diebenow & Simone Wichers-Vos

Severe thunderstorms are seen relatively often in Bosque County, but a tornado, thankfully, much less often.

On Sunday evening, a line of severe thunderstorms coming from the South-South-East moved across Texas with hail, heavy winds and rain. This storm produced at least two suspected tornadoes, one near Mosheim and another in Clifton. The Clifton funnel hit around 6:15 p.m. on Avenue M and 15th street and moved towards Highway 6 across from Dairy Queen.
