Watermelons of a different kind

Oh, that wonderful fruit. So round. So juicy and sweet. Watermelons, for a lot of people, signify summer. That fi rst crisp bite of the cold, sweet meat reminds you that is really is summer, a time of freedom, family reunions and vacations. As you sit there with juice dribbling down your chin, and if it’s a really good melon you’ll have juice running down your arms, too, the memories of long ago summer vacations when you were a kid are bound to come to mind. What a fantastic treat.

Ice and watermelons

by Deborah Ruth
 
As the hot and dry months of the Texas summer are on us, I am so thankful that I can push a lever on my refrigerator and get little pieces of frozen water to fi ll my glass. Ice. I can’t imagine what we did before this wonderful invention. Of course, ice is not an invention. It’s a naturally occurring phenomonon when water meets cold. 32 degrees of cold to be exact. There has always been ice. Just not where it was needed, when it was needed. I tip my hat to the person that made it possible to get ice anytime I want it, without having to go outside and cut off a chunk from a frozen lake.

City eliminates inspection loophole

by Roxanne McKnight
 
Groesbeck city council tightened its occupancy ordinance last week to close a loophole some property owners were using to avoid having their properties inspected. The city’s previous occupancy ordinance, passed in January 2013, required properties be inspected by a city code enforcement offi cer if vacant at least 30 days. The new ordinance requires properties be inspected whenever residents change. The reason was for safety, said Code Enforcement Offi cer Paul Fitte, who explained to the council why the ordinance needed changing.

A recipe for sweet tea

I’m a sweet tea addict. I love the stuff and can’t get enough of it. A glass or styrofoam cup is never far from my fi ngertips. I’ve even been known to carry a glass with me when visiting with friends. If I could, I would probably take a glass with me when I go out to eat, because you never know if they’re going to have sweet tea that meets my standards.
