Bosque County Outlaws

Post-Civil War crininals featured at Rotary Club program

 

By Nathan Diebenow

 

The Bosque County (Clifton) Rotary Club heard a program about outlaws of Bosque County during its regular meeting at the Clifton Civic Center on Texas Independence Day.

The special program was led by Ruth Crawford, the current manager of the Bosque County Collection in Meridian.

The time period covered was the decade starting the day after Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered his Confederate forces to end the American Civil War.

From early April to late August 1865, the county government ceased to operate. No commissioners court sessions were held. Save for school district representatives, constable, and surveyor, no local government positions were filled by election from June 28, 1866, to November 3, 1876, in Bosque County.

Bursting into bloom

AUSTIN – The spring wildflower season in Central Texas may come early this year and be spread out over several months rather than a rush during March and April, say experts at The University of Texas at Austin’s Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The area received ample fall and winter rains to promote good wildflower displays, and warmer than usual weather in February is leading to some wildflowers blooming earlier. “Hold onto your hat and fasten your seatbelt,” said Andrea DeLong-Amaya, director of horticulture at the Wildflower Center. “Wildflower season is taking off faster than you expect.”

Solar energy company provides information for citizens

Solar energy company provides information for citizens

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The production of solar energy is ecofriendly – no emissions, no noise - with low impact on the land and is a high-technology operation. So when at the end of 2015, Solar Energy Company Cypress Creek Renewables showed an interest in coming to Bosque County, the Meridian Economic Development Corporation jumped at the opportunity to welcome them.

As it turned out, the 36-acre MEDCowned land off Highway 174 was a good spot for CCR to develop a solar panel field and the land is under contract. In the following period, CCR required a few contract extensions, but are now ready to move forward. They expect to finalize the contract in the next three months.

A Step Back In Time

Meridian nearly repossessed before it even became a town

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The Bosque County Collection is a library, archives, and research center for the local history of Bosque County. Established in 1983 by the Bosque County Historical Commission, its mission is to collect and preserve valuable and irreplaceable historic as well as current materials about the county and make them readily available to researchers. Valuable and irreplaceable historical materials pertaining to Bosque County have been saved by the Collection - many of these historical materials are not available anywhere else.

Over the years she was manager at the Bosque Collection, Ruth Crawford has come across many interesting articles about Meridian and Bosque County. Before she retires in March she offered to share some of them with our readers of the Meridian Tribune.

Seeking volunteers

by Nathan Diebenow 

What are things that make you feel good? Things in which you find comforting?

Imagine specific things like persons, places, things, and ideas or beliefs. But answer as if you’re a child, a pre-teen, a teenager, or even a young adult.

Maybe sweet potatoes during Thanksgiving come to mind, or your grandmother’s rocking chair is something you equate with comfort. Or perhaps it’s your old friends, your pet dog, the hymns sung in church, or the Internet.
