County JP office building delayed

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

In the case regarding a new office building for Bosque County Justice of the Peace Precinct 2, Jamie Zander, the Bosque County Commissioners Court are showing an unrivalled level of prudence and are looking at every possible angle before spending any tax payers’ money. But this process has delayed a definite decision for over six months.

Yin Yang, Central Texas style

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

Meet Yin, meet Yang, meet Yin and Yang. Meet Walter a.k.a. Zack, meet Genie; meet the Zachariases. Because like the YinYang symbol, one without the other is none, and together the whole is greater than the parts; contrasts but together a perfect circle. And each alone is as diverse and multi-facetted as the 100-year ranch they live on - the 1917 newspaper behind the wallpaper supports the ranch’s age.

By Carol Spicer.
