Dowden’s performance inspires with music

Over a hundred music aficionados filled the Bosque Arts Center theatre on Sunday afternoon to delight in the sounds of the grand piano Shelden Phillip Dowden brought it to life. Many can play the piano – but few make a piano speak to everyone the way that Dowden can. From the music of Bach and Beethoven to Debussy, Dowden’s opening set of music filled the theater to the awe of the audience.

Informing the public

By Simone Wichers-Voss
Meridian Tribune Cost, efficiency, progress and fairness are the reasons to vote  yes for the unit road system according to the lobby spearheaded by Bosque County Judge Dewey Ratliff and Bosque County Republican President Dan Ahart. In the past weeks, both gentlemen held a series of informational forums to inform the public on the pros and cons - but mainly the pros – of the unit road system. In general, the public attending the meetings were genuinely interested in getting answers to some of their questions, according to Ratliff. The Meridian Civic Center  osted the Meridian forum April 14. Most frequently asked questionswere offered in the Powerpoint   presentation during the forum.

Emergency services district?

By Simone Wichers-Voss
Meridian Tribune The May 9 special election is a referendum of Bosque County citizens on two important issues – completely unrelated, but both very important for the county’s future. The issues are the creation of an emergency services district and a new road maintenance system. Creation of an ESD in Bosque County will change funding and control over the emergency medical service in the county. Just one person’s vote will determine whether an ambulance service in Bosque County will remain viable in the future. At present, funding of the Bosque ambulance services is through billing, Medicaid and Medicare programs and grants. Because the service  costs more than the money it brings in, Bosque County cities and the county contribute a subsidy to the services. The subsidies cover the present deficit.
