The teachers do have teacher’s aides assisting them in the classroom.

Western artistic apex

By Simone Wichers-Voss

 

There is something about a calf in a spring grass field, a rough-and-ready cowboy leaning forward fighting off the bitter morning cold, the sun hitting the fresh first snow or a young girl intently reading instantly recognizable, instantly conjuring up positive feelings and emotions. The Bosque Art Classic celebrates this realistic- representational art; it celebrates the world and nature that surrounds us-distinctively traditional, Western, unmistakably bound to ranching and the open range or day-to-day life filled with pecking chickens, birds on a wire or a perfect bloom in a vase.

Honoring heroes

By Simone Wichers-Voss

It’s been 15 years since the heinous terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 – but the surreal images of a plane crashing into the Twin Towers is etched into the nation’s collective memory, as are the final phone calls from American Airlines Flight 11. Every year since the attacks, Bosque County has held a memorial, honoring the lives of the victims, and especially honoring the lives of the first responders who lost their lives helping others.

Plastic covered the wooden city council’s console, and water dripped into make-shift receptacles as Clifton’s city council members convened for the first of two public hearings regarding Clifton’s proposed three cent tax increase Aug. 30.

Farmers flourish

By Simone Wichers-Voss

A locavore or localvore is a person interested in eating food that is locally produced, not moved long distances to market. One common – but not universal – definition of “local” food is food grown within 100 miles of its point of purchase or consumption. With the growing numbers of vendors and visitors to the Bosque Farmers Market on Saturdays at the Meridian Courthouse Square, it seems more locals are buying into the locavore movement.
