Mexia City Council members heard options for having some kind of pool and/or splash pad to replace the current non-functioning swimming pool, but the price was far above the current $500,000 budget.
Summer is on its way, along with increasing temperatures and water conditions that are suitable for the spread of an uncommon but usually fatal illness that can occur when water is forced up your nose, usually during swimming or water recreation.
Limestone County Master Gardeners put the finishing touches on Habitat for Humanity’s newest build at 621 North Red River Street in Mexia. The home, started last fall, will be dedicated at 1:30 p.m. June 28 for homeowners Scott and Kristin Green. The landscaping is the final step in completing a process that has involved over 400 hours of sweat equity by this family and community volunteers. Habitat board members welcome everyone to join them for the dedication ceremony and open house that day.
The show must go on, and it will, at least when it comes to the 90th annual Mexia Rodeo.
Our four-day weekend with all four of our grandkids here is over. Camp Ponk, we call it.
