Amendment election early voting opens

By Carol Spicer
 
The 2013 Amendment election opened early voting on Monday at the Bosque County Courthouse in the Commissioners’ courtroom. The last day for early voting is Friday, Nov. 1, prior to the Nov. 5 election. Many of the amendments have little connection to Bosque County; however, one that is catching everyone’s attention is Proposition 6 – which is the constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources.

Hank the Cowdog, head of ranch security, heard that kids lose reading skills during the carefree summer months. Consequently, Hank will be in Bosque County all summer long on a mission to solve “The Mystery of Summer Reading Loss.”

Hank figures he has to make it easy for the kids to get good ol’ stories. So he got together with the local newspapers, The Clifton Record and Meridian Tribune, and they promised to print a chapter per week of a fun story. So look out for the first chapter of “The Kitty Cheater,” in next week’s paper.
