District files to be moved for safety

The heavy, rolling files in the Limestone County courthouse basement must be moved immediately as they present a danger to the district clerks who use them, said Maintenance Supervisor Sam Callis. He gave the report to county commissioners at their May 24 meeting, while reporting on what options the county has to repair the floor. Callis emphasized that the courthouse building itself is structurally sound but only has a problem in one area of the basement floor.

God Carries out His Plan: Divine Providence  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Creation has its own goodness and proper perfection, but it did not spring forth complete. (Remember Genesis tells us it was performed in 6 days, or stages, and God rested on the 7th day) The universe was created "in a state of journey" toward an ultimate perfection yet to be attained, to which God has destined it.

God Can Use Second Hand Stuff

 

 

By Clifton Fox, Church of Christ

 

     A lad with a new driver’s license asked his Dad for a car. His dad told him, “Not until you raise your grades to B’s, and read your Bible daily, and cut your long hair.” A few months later he asked his dad again: “Son, I’m proud of you. Your grades are B’s, and you read your Bible as I asked. However, you never cut your hair.”  The lad answered: In my Bible studies I noticed Sampson, Moses, and Jesus may have had long hair.” His dad responded: “Son, did you also notice those guys walked where ever they went?”

Tom Topics

By Tom Hawkins

This writer was somewhat saddened this past Saturday to learn of the final destruction of Baylor Stadium or Floyd Casey Stadium as it was known in more recent years.

Baylor Stadium was opened in 1950  and was the home of Baylor Bear football for many years. The stadium was closed when McLean Stadium opened. The final Baylor football game was played in the storied old stadium in December of 2013.

As a young school boy, yours truly, remembers attending numerous BU football games. In those day a youngster or teenager could be seated in the end zone for 50 cents. Those 50 cent tickets were called “knot-hole” tickets.

My brother, Jack W. Hawkins, recalls that the Groesbeck Boys Scouts were often invited to assist  with the parking or other such duties at Baylor Stadium for free tickets.
