Service at St. Luke's

A Service of the Word for Healing will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29 at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Schroeder. The service is sponsored jointly by St. Luke’s and St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Ander.
 
The service will include Scripture readings, hymns and the laying on of hands and anointing. St. Luke’s is located at 11547 FM 622 in Schroeder.
 
In its ministry of healing, the church does not replace the gifts of God that come through the scientific community, nor does it promise a cure. The church offers and celebrates gifts such as these: God's presence with strength and comfort in time of suffering, God's promise of wholeness and peace, and God's love embodied in the community of faith.
 
The offering received at the service will be given to Hospice of South Texas.
 
For more information about the service, call 361-277-6434.

TxDot to host open houses for historic metal truss bridges

AUSTIN – If you traveled along a local Texas road in the late 19th and early 20th century, you would more than likely come upon a new metal truss bridge spanning a creek or stream. These strong and inexpensive bridges were built by the hundreds in Texas, promising a safe crossing to continue on your journey. 
 
Flash forward to today, when current traffic needs, safety concerns and deterioration continue to push these historic metal truss bridges out of vehicular service. To limit the losses, TxDOT, is developing a management plan for about 130 survivors in cooperation with the Texas Historical Commission (THC), and Historic Bridge Foundation (HBF).
 
“We need your feedback,” noted Bruce Jensen, TxDOT’s Cultural Resource Management Director.

Texas has best pasture conditions since 2007

CUERO – Despite recent flooding rains wreaking havoc on Texas farmers, there is a bright spot for agriculture and consumers. 
 
Ranchers across the state, including DeWitt County, are now working to rebuild their cattle herds. The heavy rains will help Texas pastures recover from the many years of drought and fill soil profiles with water. 
 
The greener pastures on the horizon are good news for consumers, too. 
 
“Years of drought devastated pastures, leaving virtually nothing for cows to eat,” said DeWitt County Farm Bureau President Wayne Wolf. “Ranchers were forced to sell cattle, which resulted in low numbers and higher beef prices for consumers.”
With help from record-breaking rainfall in May, pasture conditions statewide are the best since 2007 and above the national average.

EPA expands authority under Clean Water Act

CUERO – A final rule by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will expand its authority under the Clean Water Act and could leave Texas agriculture mired in regulation. 
 
After months of debate, thousands of comments from farmers and ranchers - including 1,200 from Texas - and direction from Congress, EPA moved forward on their interpretation of the rule. 
 
“The agency will have more power to regulate farmers, ranchers, landowners and other businesses under this final Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule,” DeWitt county President Wayne Wolf said. “It's troubling for DeWitt County agriculture and local businesses.”
