This quote from the “Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge could quite possibly be applied to the current water conditions in Limestone County. Even though area residents have been enjoying the cool waters coming from the skies, The National Weather Service is still indicating a severe to extreme drought condition for much of north and central Texas.

Roxanne McKnight Staff Writer Groesbeck high school students now have a club dedicated to mentoring them and teaching them to be civic leaders. The seeds of the group started when former Groesbeck Mayor Jackie Levingston was president of the Texas Municipal League in 2003. She avidly promoted the Youth Advisory Council in Texas, and eventually the organization spread across the state. She did not have the satisfaction, however, of seeing YAC take root in Groesbeck at that time.
