In what can only be called the sweetest accomplishment, Billy Kyle (BK) and Alta Stone are celebrating 70 years of marriage, a feat that very few can claim. The pair have spent the past seven decades loving each other, God, their family, and the life they have created for themselves here in Groesbeck, and have plenty of love to go around.
In their regular meeting on Tuesday, September 15, Groesbeck Council covered a lot of ground. A public hearing regarding the city budget for fiscal year 2020-2021 was held, and as there were no questions or comments from those in attendance, Council went on to adopt the budget as presented. The tax rate for 2020, proposed as 0.6921 per $100 dollar valuation, effectively a 0% increase from last year, was also approved.
The Texas corn crop has reached the midway point, and expectations are for an above-average crop, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service expert.
