This was the night, at the Leon High School football field, where no one felt conspicuous wearing a turban or even not wearing one and showing a bald head. This was the night when these survivors were honored and shown respect for the battle they are currently fighting.   According to The American Cancer Society, one of every three people in the USA will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime.

Late on Wednesday afternoon Centerville Fire Department received a 9-1-1 call advising them of a fire on CR 289 in the Russell Community off FM 1511.

They had left their home and ranch with two teenage girls whose duty was to care for the dogs and miniature horses which belong to the Keepers.   More...

The theme of the evening was lighthearted--Hollywood, with pictures of Elvis scattered around and plastic Oscars gracing each tent. But beneath the surface those who attended knew the purpose of the evening was as serious as life and death.   This year’s Relay for Life was scheduled for May 1 but was postponed due to the Swine Flu scare. There were 27 teams from across the county who participated and each team had a maximum of 15 members. Probably because of the delay, attendance was less than last year but the faithful who came out were blessed in many ways.   More...

The All-District softball team selections have been announced and BHS’ young Lady Bison team grabbed a huge share of the honors in District 21AA, including one of the district superlatives. Sophomore shortstop Jordyn Briscoe, who tormented opponents all year by snagging would-be hits out of mid-air, earned the title of Defensive Player of the Year.   Four Lady Bison were selected to the First Team All District: Seniors Kayla Morris (first base) and Jami Davis (centerfield), and sophomore pitcher Rachel Morris and catcher Jennifer Pate.   More...
AUSTIN – (June 8, 2009) For the week ending June 6, 2009, feeder cattle prices at Texas auctions were mostly steady to $6 lower per hundred-weight. A few locations were $2 higher on offerings weighing less than 500 pounds. Fed cattle prices were lower as beef values continued to drop. Cotton and wheat prices declined because of weak global demand and a stronger U.S. dollar. Corn prices were supported by higher crude oil and ongoing concerns about weather in the Midwest Corn Belt.

Cattle tuberculosis (TB) has been confirmed in a west Texas dairy that has been quarantined since April when some cattle in the herd responded to a TB test being conducted prior to a sale. (The sale was cancelled.)   The cattle TB diagnosis was confirmed at the National Veterinary Services Laboratory (NVSL) in Ames, Iowa, where M. bovis, or cattle TB bacteria, was grown or “cultured” from tissues that had been collected during the necropsy of the test-positive cattle.   More...
