State Rep. Burns seeking re-election

CLEBURNE – State Representative DeWayne Burns has formally announced recently that he will seek re-election to his seat in the Texas House representing the people of Bosque and Johnson Counties.

First elected in 2014, Burns has a string of conservative victories under his belt from his first two terms in office, including increased funding for border security, support for our local public schools and retired teachers, and billions in tax relief for hard-working families, among others.

A ball of wax

Meridian 3rd graders present famous people in ‘wax’ museum

By Simone Wichers-Voss

A wax museum usually consists of a collection of wax sculptures representing famous people from history and contemporary personalities exhibited in lifelike poses, wearing real clothes.

On Friday, costumed Meridian Elementary third-graders had their own “wax museum.” Their personas had a “push” button – they would recite the life’s history of the famous person they had chosen to represent.

One Cool Yule

Bosque Chorale presents Christmas concert

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The plaid scarves, mittens, hats, warm boots and even a fur coat or two showed “Baby, it’s cold outside.” And the first line of the first song sung was “The weather outside is frightful.”

On a cold and blustery Dec. 7 evening, Maestro David Anavitarte and the Bosque Chorale dressed in seasonal red, white and black presented their Christmas concert “One Cool Yule,” a toe-tapping holiday pops concert. The title and the Santa wearing Elvis sunglasses on the poster already revealed the fun, festive and informal nature of the program.

Selfless servitude

County volunteers honored at annual recognition banquet

By Simone Wichers-Voss

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It isn’t the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost” 

Pastor Danny Crosby

First Baptist Church Cleburne

With this quote, State Representative for Johnson and Bosque Counties De-Wayne Burns emphasized the importance of volunteers in a community – heroes of everyday life, assisting where they can, whenever they can, often teaching youth through leading example to lead valuable lives through volunteering and showing leadership.

“Helping other grow in knowledge and servitude and make the world a better place, is so valuable,” Burns said.

Readers gotta read

By Simone Wichers-Voss

County, state and federal funding withered many years back. And, whereas the library is dependent solely on donations and grants from individuals and the city, it is still able to provide a variety of services and a collection that is impressive for the limited budget, thanks to committed employees and an enthusiastic and dedicated board.

It may be a small town library, but it offers big town services to its patrons.

At the Meridian Public Library annual meeting Nov. 28, to which the public is invited, the board presented the financial statements and the budget for next year.

Sounds of the season

By Nathan Diebenow Correspondent

How did Christmas sound to early European pioneers of Texas?

Spiritual and secular music lovers alike were treated to showcases of beautiful answers at St. Olaf Kirke in the Norse Cultural District on Saturday, December 2.

The limestone walls of the 131-year-old church echoed several live performances – without electric amplification – during the 30th Annual Norwegian Country Christmas Tour. The performances kicked off with two youth choirs, followed by a musician and his family whose roots are firm in the local Texas-Norwegian community, a bluegrass-gospel band, and a jolly ensemble of tuba players
