Dear Heloise: Do you have any suggestions or recipes for an overabundance of cooked oatmeal cereal? Our church group makes breakfast every other month (pancakes, eggs, biscuits and gravy, fruit and oatmeal), and there is usually a pot of oatmeal left over. I hate to see this thrown out but have no ideas on how to transition this into something else. Please help. -- Vickie D., Burke, Va.

The show won’t go on

Editor’s note: We were so happy to announce in the Wednesday Mexia News that the Limestone County Fair Association had figured out a way to have the fair. Headline: THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Now, they have canceled the event. We know they tried hard to keep it going. We at the Mexia News will make every effort to acquire exhibitor/project photos and publish them in a section.

Governor’s Office clears path for governmental bodies to meet telephonically or by videoconference during coronavirus disaster

AUSTIN - Governor Abbott’s office today approved a request by the Office of the Attorney General to temporarily suspend a limited number of open meeting laws in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disaster. This action will allow governmental bodies to conduct meetings by telephone or video conference to advance the public health goal of limiting faceto-face meetings (also called “social distancing”) to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
