It’s all rainbows

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

With record high beef prices at the retail level, lower corn prices and projected record yields on the current crop on the feeder side, any type of cow a rancher can put meat on is worth it. This was the message area ranchers heard at a small grains - stocker conference in Cranfills Gap Aug. 26.

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.

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.

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.”
