Tom’s Topics

By Tom Hawkins

This column is being written early Tuesday morning, and, boy, is it cold! The high for Tuesday was only expected to reach 32 degrees. According to the current weather forecast cold weather is expected for several days. However, the forecast calls temperatures in the low to mid 60’s for the weekend.


Thursday night is expected to be a big night as the annual Groesbeck Chamber of Commerce banquet will be held. The banquet will include a great speaker, the presentation of several awards, a silent auction, a stretch ticket drawing, and some great food. Please see related articles in this week’s Journal.


It is understood that the Gun Show, which was held at the Groesbeck Convention Center last Saturday and Sunday, was a great success with large crowds in attendance. The sponsors of the Gun Show plan to return next year.


Groesbeck Goat football player Nick Mosley was named to the second team defense on Super Centex Football Team which was recently published by the Waco Tribune--Herald.

Several Goats made honorable mention on the team including Ty Hale, Brandyn Canady, Dylan Rand, Ethan Davis, Mark Smith, Landen Frazier, and Brayden Bradley. Congratulations to each of these Goats!


Have a great week and weekend and stay warm!
