Going once, going twice

Walnut Springs Business for Youth in Agriculture holds fundraiser 

 

by Elizabeth Devereaux 

The Spirit of giving in rural Texas is strong.

And when it comes to supporting and giving to youth livestock projects, sponsorship begins well before the first ribbon is awarded at livestock shows and the auction at the Central Texas Youth Fair in Clifton.

Twenty-eight years ago a small group of concerned and caring people formed the Walnut Springs Business for Youth in Agriculture. The first few recipients of the funds supporting their projects and further education are now in their mid-forties. And the circle of investing in youth continues.

Protecting Landowners

AUSTIN – State Representative DeWayne Burns filed legislation taking aim at eminent domain abuse. House Bill 2684 will help level the playing field for property owners when they face-off with government entities and corporations with infinitely greater resources. Rep. Burns said that it was his personal experience with eminent domain that prompted him to file the bill.

“I know first-hand the burden that the eminent domain process places on landowners,” Burns said. “That is why I am fighting to ensure property owners are in the best possible position when faced with the taking of their property. In Texas, private property rights are a sacred principle, and I believe this legislation will help preserve that right without adversely affecting the businesses that are helping to grow our economy.”

The Meridian High School One Act Play faced extremely tough competition at Bi District, and was not able to advance.
