A Few Reading Notes from the Local Glen Rose Reporter Newspaper for March 19 2009

19 March 2009 at 12:48:02 PM

I have said this before but the paper gets better and better. I like the layout, the photos, the news, and the human interest stories. There's a really cute picture of people fishing off the weir at Big Rocks Park. Anyway, here's a few things that caught my eye.

A son, Rhett Michael Thiebaud of Joe Thiebaud and Barbara Hudson died in a freak road accident. Hugs to Barbara, really an awful occurrence.

Bill Atkinson isn't president of the Chamber of Commerce any more. Frankly, whenever I see something like "let his post to pursue other opportunities", it always seems like a euphemism for I Quit or You're Fired. Perhaps not, but in any event the chamber is looking for a new prez, aspirin included.

Question answered, for me, mostly anyway, about how that 14.5 million is being given to GRMC/GRMF. Apparently that money, at least some of it,  is in the bank and it gets given out to the project (ie, Gary Marks) after votes for Somervell County Commissioners.

Although commissioners gave the green light, the decision does not mean more money.

Somervell County Judge Walter Maynard said the project has $600,000 in contingency funds plus $675,000 for storm drainage and parking lot projects as part of the $13.9 million budget.

The court has to approve the funds, however, before any money is drawn from those accounts.

My question remains. Who has the 14.5 million dollars? The county commissioners or GRMC? Anybody know?

Also noticed an ad for a class for storm spotter, put on tby the Fort Worth NWS. The classis going to be on Tuesday March 31 from 7-9 at the Fire Station. Sounds really interesting.

Finally, noticed an ad in the back that Riverbend is asking TCEQ for a renewal of a permit that lets them put treated wastewater into a water tributary. Get this...

the facility is located approximately 1000 feet due west of the Brazos River and approximately 4 miles due east of the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road and Farm-to-Market Road 144 in Somervell County, Texas. The treated effluent is discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to Brazos River below Lake Granbury in Segment No 1204 of the Brazos River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are no significant aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary. The designated uses for Segment No 1204 are high aquatic life use and contract recreation. All determinations are preliminary and subject to addtional review and/or revisions.

The draft permit is a the county court house annex.

If you have a comment about this, you can send it to TCEQ within 30 days from March 19 to Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, TCEQ, P.O. Box 13087 Austin TX 78711-3087 or to www.tceq.state.tx.us/about/comments.html

Can I just say BLECH!!!! BLECH!~!!
