1933

Crockett County hunters who go out after that buck this year will have more than the sport and the meat to urge them on. Joe Oberkampf has posted an offer of three valuable prizes to the first three hunters who bring down a buck and exhibit the kill in front of the Oberkampf store.

First prize, for the buck with the greatest number of points killed during November, will be a $65 pair of field glasses. For the first buck of the season, Oberkampf is offering a skinning knife and to the second lucky hunter, he is offering a belt with a sterling silver buckle. Bucks must be exhibited in front of the Joe Oberkamft store.

1953

An architect's drawing depicting the proposed addition to the public library and a budget for the project was examined by commissioners Monday. The information was presented by librarian Louise Lettoux during her report to the court. Jack Meek, San Angelo architect, estimates a total construction cost of $199,080 for the 2,800 square feet of the new addition and changes necessary to the existing building. Now that the plans and budget have been prepared, the Friends of the Library can pursue grant funds for the project.
