Working with clay

By Simone Wichers-Voss

In a hands-on workshop with master potter Stan Irvin last week, students pushed the boundaries of clay form and surface, adding silk screening to their skills.

Driving The Trail

Historic cattle drive to stop at Bosque Bottoms

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The sound of hooves, the sight of cowboys on horses pushing a herd of Texas Longhorn cattle down the road, and the squeak of the wagon wheels - all bring thoughts of a time in history when cowboys were created and Western Heritage was in the making.

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, the Western Heritage Cattle Drive is organizing an actual cattle drive from Texas to Dodge City, Kansas. Beginning in Salado 100 head of Texas Longhorn cattle, horses, wagons, and all the crew, will gather before their journey covering hundreds of miles for an estimated two and a half months.

‘Deplorable’ now

County Republican Club hosts fundraiser

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Deplorable is the word Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used it to describe half of Donald Trump’s followers. Taking a negative and making it into a positive, with a touch of tongue in cheek the Bosque County Republican Club decided to call their annual fundraiser this year the Deplorables Ball. The ball coincided with President Trump’s inauguration Friday.

“I am very appreciative for the overwhelming support of our elected officials, Club and Party officers, volunteers and patrons who made our Inaugural event such a success,” BCRC Chairman Janet Jackson said. “Our county elected officials are stellar and comprise a group of very well qualified and dedicated stewards of our local government. We look forward to a new and conservative presence in Washington and at home.”
