When you read this on Thursday, we will have had our board meeting. We are scheduled to meet on Tuesday, October 2, 2012. It is also time for the County Judge to reappoint our members. By law the Judge and County Commission review the appointees every 2 years and submit their appointments to the THC by January of odd-numbered years. If you are interested in becoming a member, contact your commissioner or the county judge.

The commission(board) meets four times a year. We have several committees but the time commitment is minimal. We need people interested in our county and willing to assist us with our growth.

The museum staff continue to inventory and bring items to our attention that are assets to our collection. This inventory is allowing us to develop a catalog of our items so that we can locate items more quickly and / or locate items needed to research a particular subject.

REMINDER: Dr. Lew Hunnicutt's exhibit of Kiowa Creek photographs is on display and reveals the natural beauty of our county. Please plan to visit the exhibit and his reception on October 21 at 2pm. Dr. Hunnicutt will present a program at 3 pm of his photographs and his work on Kiowa Creek. Please plan to attend.

We are also planning our annual fundraising dinner so stay tuned for details.


This week is the ninth anniversary for me writing this column. Time flies by when you are having fun. We appreciate your comments and input thru the years and we are still on the hunt for interesting stories about our county and people. Mildred advised me to always write about the goodness of the county and its people, but you know, I can't always do that because we have interesting "bad" stories, too. I also believe in the old saying, 'learn from your mistakes' and your history. I look forward to my tenth year and I hope my column will fulfill the following quote by Samuel Johnson: "The happiest conversation is that of which nothing is distinctly remembered, but a general effect of pleasing impression". Have a good week and enjoy this fall rain and weather.
