So many men, women and young folks worked extra hard to put together a day of festivities for the community. May God bless each every one of you who made the day possible. 
 
Blessings to all of you who came out enjoyed a day of relaxation, fun and fellowship. May God, who brings us news of rejoicing, continue to bring rejoicing to each of your lives and families. 
 
Blessings and love,

Texans urged to recognize Constitution Week

 

Dear Editor,
 
On Sept. 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign their creation, what is now the oldest written and actively used constitution in the world.
 
More than two centuries after the signing of the Constitution, Americans celebrate National Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23, dedicated to honoring and explaining the Constitution and its role in keeping our nation great.
 
Farm Bureau urges Texans to give due notice this week. It is of great importance that all citizens fully understand the provisions and the principles of the Constitution so that it can be supported, preserved and defended.

Nice trail, gone bad

 

Dear Editor,
As fall approaches, my husband and I thought we would enjoy the cooler weather, so we went out and bought new bikes to get some exercise. We had not been on the trail in years. We just could not believe how horrible it looks! 
 
Who’s in charge of the upkeep, weedeating, mowing and the bridges that are a safety issue? It was once a nice trail.  Apparently, like everything else in town, it’s been left to neglect!  
 
How can the citizens in town show pride if our own town shows no pride.  What’s happened?

Women say thanks

 

Dear Editor,
The United Methodist women of First United Methodist Church would like to thank everyone who came to our recent Salad Luncheon. It was great to share a meal and enjoy the company of our friends and neighbors.  
 
A special thank you to all who brought extra salads to help us out. A special thanks to those generous people who made a special donation above the price of the meal. Because of your generous support, we were able to donate $1,051.50 to the Keep Yorktown Beautiful Park Project.
 
Thank you for your love and support.

Mom offers apology

 

Dear Editor,
I, Lupe Garcia (mother of Kirk Engle), apologize and I’m very sorry for what my mental (bi-polar) son did to the policemen, firemen, especially to Brian Smolik. My prayers go to him and his family.
 
Kirk is on medication which affected him in depression and anger.
 
Kirk Engle also wrote to me stating that he would never hurt anyone if he was not on that medication. He also wants to apologize to the policemen, firemen, especially Brian Smolik and his mother.
 
I tried to get help for Kirk for 20 years. It’s hard to get it. Something terrible has to happen before they can get help. Then it’s too late.
