This writer along with other members of his family enjoyed a very fun trip to Port Aransas last week.

The weather was great, and, of course, some very delicious seafood was enjoyed.

The recent rains have really made Limestone County a very green and pretty place --- especially for August.

This week’s weather forecast calls for temperatures in the low 90’s for most of the week. Possible showers from time to time are included in the forecast. However, no real big rains are indicated.

The Homecoming Committee of the Groesbeck Ex-Students Association was to have met on Monday night of this week. Plans for Homecoming 2016 were to be discussed and approved. The general plans for this year’s homecoming will be announced in next week’s Journal.
