Educational essays enlight

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Showing their dedication to the promotion of education, an important focus of the local Bosque River Valley DAR chapter May meeting Sunday was the announcement of the 2016 scholarship recipients and the winners of the American History essay contest.

Homegrown & Healthy

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Having a farmer’s market in a rural community just seems to make sense. The shorter the road between the producer and the consumer, the fresher the produce, and supporting local small scale farmers boosts the local economy. Starting May 7, the Bosque Farmers’ Market – a new initiative from the Bosque County AgriLife Extension Office and Stephanie Coughlin – is a fact. Every Saturday from May – October from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. people can expect vendors at the south end of the Courthouse Square with goods ranging from pastured poultry, eggs, to seasonal vegetables, strawberries, body butter and music.

Driving for dollars

By Simone Wichers-Voss

It was not about winning. For 16 teams participating in the Bosque Valley Golf Course fundraising tournament Saturday, it was all about raising funds to keep their conveniently close course operating healthily. Yeah, right. Golfers are notoriously competitive. Each “ugh,” “oh no,” and “yuck,” at tee-off displayed a player’s dismay at their shot.

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Worth the wait

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Getting money for a project is always a difficult task. Getting money from the federal government is a slow one on top of that. At the May 9 Bosque County Commissioners’ Court, Bosque County Emergency Management Coordinator Time Jeske presented a report regarding applying for and receiving federal funding for the significant damage to county roads in the May and October 2015 storms.

Spring fever

By Simone Wichers-Voss

In the winter months we concentrate activities inward with celebrations within the home. Spring on the other hand we focus our activities outward; out towards the budding trees, to the song of courting birds to the soft breeze and gentle sunshine. But before we take that longed-for motorcycle ride, nature hike or day of fishing, we feel the need to open the windows, let the fresh air in and do a good spring clean, preparing the home for the summer months.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. “These are trying times, and there is an urgent need to pray,” Governor Greg Abbott said. “America is at a time of crisis as some try to silence the faithful and purge God from the public square.”
