Club dances at Davy Crockett Festival

BY CAROL ADCOCK

What could be more fun than getting to square dance two different places in one day? According to the Levis and Lace Square Dance, not much.

Levis and Lace Square Dance Club danced on Aug. 26 in the gazebo on the square for the Davy Crockett Festival. It was a fun afternoon with John Geen, caller from San Angelo, putting the dancers through their paces. They also invited some of the crowd attending to join them in the gazebo and learn a few basic moves and dance with them.

Primary race to challenge U.S Rep. Will Hurd draws two more Democrats

BY PATRICK SVITEK

The race for Texas' most competitive congressional district is drawing two more Democrats.

Jay Hulings, a former federal prosecutor from San Antonio, said Sunday he could no wait no longer to launch a challenge to U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, R-Helotes. Hulings is an ally of the Castro brothers — U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, and former U.S. Housing Secretary Julián Castro.

"Washington is so broken and Congress is so broken," Hulings said in an interview with The Texas Tribune. "There are times when you can sit on the sidelines. This not one of them. I decided I have to get in the fight."

Bingo Social Monday

BY BRENDA NEWTON

The time is passing way too fast. We are halfway through August and football has already started. School will be starting soon and before you know it we will be Christmas shopping. As usual, I'm not ready. I love summer and it passes by so fast. The rain has been so wonderful. Of course, we get the bad with the good. Mosquitoes! It has been hard to be outside with those pesky little things. We just have to be thankful for what we get.

Be thinking of 1:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21. It will be a special day at the center. Rhonda Shaw has a really good craft planned for us all. It has to do with magnets and pictures. It will be fun.

There are a lot of movies here that you nice people let me show when we were having movie afternoon. I still have all of these movies. If you left some, please come by and pick them up. Thank you for letting us enjoy them.
