Celebrating comfort care

By Simone Wichers-Voss

When curative measures have been exhausted and a terminally-ill patient’s pursuit of treatment changes to the desire for care, support and freedom from pain, aggressive treatment, hospital beds and distress, hospice care is viable choice. In Bosque County, the Lutheran Sunset Hospice has been around for 10 years – a milestone worth celebrating. On Dec. 15, at the former Bella Veta building in Clifton, Santa came to visit, to add to the festive occasion, there was a table filled with goodies and the chance to sit down and chat with care givers, management or with friends.

Grelle & Greene hosts ‘in the outdoors’ artists workshop

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Rain is a blessing in Central Texas, but just when you least expect it, it tends to mess with outdoor activities.

This was also the case during the 25th annual Bruce Greene and Martin Grelle Plein Air artists’ workshop. The French Plein Air means “in the outdoors,” but rain kept Greene and Grelle with the 20 participants to their workshop indoors in a beautiful hay barn Nov. 5 at the Circle 13 Ranch.
