Fight for life

By Carol Spicer.

CLIFTON - The Saturday afternoon heat kept some survivors from attending the annual Relay for Life, and caused others
to come, sign in, and leave – but despite it all, many people from across Bosque County turned out in support of the ACS “Finish the Fight” Relay for Life at Cub Stadium. Sponsored by Goodall-Witcher Hospital Authority and the local American Cancer Society, the event kicked off at 2 p.m. at the Survivor’s Tent. Twenty-eight survivors, nine teams and 140 participants raised $10,895.21 during the annual one-day event.

Added bonus

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

One plus one is three. Thanks to a special subscription drive, the Meridian Tribune generated enough funds to add a third scholarship to the National Championship Barbecue Cookoff roster. “As a newspaper, we think it is important for young people to get the opportunity to further their education,” Publisher Brett Voss said. “And as the Vice President of the NCBC, I thought it would be a good idea to combine forces to increase the amount we can offer Bosque County students.”
