Ancient know-how skills

Bosque Museum offers two-day workshop on ancient survival skills

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The acronym for Native American science and technology using material, land and art is nastumla. And that was the name of the two-day survival skills camp offered by the Bosque Museum during spring break March 15 and 16.

For the second time Kathy Cash and Eric Vanderbeck taught ancient techniques to youth third grade and up. The first workshop drew half a dozen youth, but word about the hands-on camp got out and the museum welcomed 40 youth this time around. And they came from all over the county

Forgotten Places

Crawford publishes book about county schools & churches

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The first thing the earliest settlers to Bosque County did was establish communal meeting places, often a school or a church followed.

The community gathered in these places vital to daily life; they offered a meeting place, gave them a sense of community in a still strange land, offered chances to exchange information on farming, building a homestead, getting supplies and much more. The schools served to educate the next generations.

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.
