Diamondback Den

For some reason, hunting rattlers in the spring has always been part of the Walnut Springs folklore and history. And that continues to this day.

The annual Walnut Springs Rattlesnake Roundup with numerous surrounding activities – including open mike nights, a Saturday night dance, a carnival and a barbecue cookoff - was this past weekend.

The event kicked off Friday and ran through Sunday. The damp weather that moved in Saturday affected attendance.

Home on the range

By Simone Wichers-Voss News Editor

Each year Bosque Celebrates Texas Independence offers presentations on the state’s history and legacies in the week of Texas Independence Day March 2. It is no coincidence that this year all presentations center on the Chisholm Trail. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the Chisholm Trail – the most well-known name related to the largest movement of longhorn cattle over two decades out of south Texas. And with the Chisholm Trail, so the iconic cowboy image was born – independent, rugged, hard-working, dependable, proud of their occupation.

At the Bosque Museum Sunday, Cowboy Artist of America and Bosque County resident Bruce Greene gave a presentation on the historic Chisholm Trail, focusing on the cowboys, and how their work then and today may not have changed so much.

Being Heard

By Simone Wichers-Voss News Editor

A city council is a meeting open to the public. At the beginning of the meeting people can sign up to voice their concerns and ideas in an allotted three minutes in public forum. The council can only listen to the citizens, but cannot comment or act upon the issues offered. The fire hall was packed with people for Meridian City Council Monday. There were people representing the Bosque County Farmers Market, representatives of different wrecker services that had issued bids, there were people representing Grass Roots, a representative of the solar energy company aiming to build a facility in Meridian, and representatives of the First Baptist Church Meridian.

Country doctor

By Simone Wichers-Voss News Editor

Many rural hospitals no longer offer labor and delivery services, but at Goodall- Witcher in Clifton, they feel that having your baby close to home gives you peace of mind throughout the entire pregnancy. Keeping that in mind, the hospital’s administration went looking for a needle in a haystack when they put out a recruitment search for a family practitioner with a specialization in obstetrics – or childbirth.

Pondering Questions

By Simone Wichers-Voss News Editor

It was one of those Bosque County Commissioners’ Court agendas – 29 items of various topics over which the commissioners were expected to make the best decisions for the county and her taxpaying citizens. Because comp time is a non-budgeted liability, accruing extra work time was ended in 2016.
