Freezing fundraiser

By Simone Wichers-Voss.
 
As the ALS – Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – fundraiser challenge goes viral and has national celebrities dousing themselves with freezing water, Bosque County citizens and local celebrities also take up the gauntlet. Everybody is having fun with the unique challenge and all in the good cause take the public squealing and “bad word, bad word, bad word” moment with pleasure. Not wanting to be classified as being wimpy is probably another motivational factor.

Faith Serving

By Carol Spicer.

The youth of Trinity Lutheran church began their fundraising over the past weekend for their trip to the National Gathering in Detroit next July. On Saturday, the kids were selling snow cones downtown at Ms Behavin’ and a car wash at Leon’s Floor Covering. Picking it back up on Sunday, the youths helped serve lunch at Trinity with plates of homemade chicken tettrazini, salad, green beans, garlic break and a wide range of homemade desserts.

Angels & Outlaws

Angels and Outlaws was the evening’s theme for the annual Bosque County 4-H awards banquet Thursday at the Meridian Civic Center. But judging by the introductory speeches for the 4-H awards and honors, it seems the local chapter only harbors angels.

County Judge Ratliff speaks at Rotary

By Carol Spicer.
 
Bosque County Judge Dewey Ratliff was introduced by Rick Lundberg at last week’s Rotary Club meeting in Clifton. Lundberg noted that Ratliff has served the county as Emergency Management Coordiator since 2003, and has been involved in many local and regional government positions. Ratliff opened by saying that he loves the job – but still has a lot to learn. “I love serving the community, but it’s embarrassing to have people stand up and applaud me (when he was introduced).”

Giddy Up With God

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

Everyone, of all ages, was welcome. During the past eight weeks, the Bosque County Cowboy Church hosted Buckle Days - play days on horseback for church youngsters. On average 23 Christian cowpokes showed up on the Saturday morning family affairs. Parents, grandparents and siblings spurred the riders on to get the best possible times in events like pole bending and barrels, with “Help her back home,” “Give her some rein,” and “Don’t stop now.”

Higher Power

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

They were smaller, lower and slower than any vehicles on Highway 6. Some looked as if they drove straight off a Sci-Fi movie set. They were solar energy cars, cruisin’ along at a comfortable 30-35 miles per hour pace on their way from Fort Worth to Baylor University in Waco last Wednesday. Because of the type of motor, the whirr of the wheels on the asphalt was the only noise to be heard.
