Tour de Norway hits county roads

The second annual Bosque Tour de Norway in 2013 had 194 bicycle riders show up in Clifton for what would turn out to be a hot and very windy day. This was a near doubling of the total number of riders from their first year and may have more than doubled if not for the forecasted weather for the day. This year, the ride will be held on Saturday, May 17, with an anticipated large number of bicycles taking to the roads across Bosque County.

Candidates’ forum skyped

By Carol Spicer.
 
Last week’s Clifton school board forum held at Bettis was opened by Andy Ball, CMS principal, who introduced the four candidates, John Thiele, Phillip Simpson, Damaris Neelley, and Dr. Skylar Bizzel, who appeared via skyp – thanks to Barbie Ernst and the technology of CISD. Despite a low turnout for the forum, each of the candidates fully answered the five questions that were asked of them – including: why they were running for school board; what they felt were the immediate challenges of CISD; what they felt are the requirements of a school board member; what strengths they could bring to the board; and what their vision is for the CISD.
