County calls for candidates for Post Oak Savannah Board of Directors

The Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation District was created by the Texas Legislature in 2001 to manage and conserve the groundwater beneath Milam and Burleson counties. 

The Commissioners Court of each county appoints five citizens from their county to serve on a Board of Directors that governs the District. The positions are appointed to alternating four year terms, three of the Milam County positions are up for new four year terms beginning in January 2018. 

The law specifies that each position is to represent a specific interest; one is to represent municipal interests, another agricultural interests and the third industrial interests. These are very important assignments. 

The Commissioners Court of Milam County has asked the city councils of Buckholts, Cameron, Milano, Rockdale and Thorndale to each submit one candidate to be considered for selection to the municipal representative seat.

Any well-known programs are known for their consistency.  When referring to the C.H. Yoe High School Band, there is no better word to describe what is brought to the field each and every performance.  

On Saturday from the area D marching contest from Hewitt Midway, the band added to their long tradition of excellence by punching their fourth straight trip to the state marching contest in San Antonio.  

“It’s a long day and it’s asking a lot from the students, but seeing them put up two greats shows is very exciting,” said band director Craig George following the big announcement.  

The band first performed in the preliminary round of 24 bands at 11:30 a.m.  After that performance, the band traveled back to Cameron to freshen up, eat and work out a few points in the show before heading back up to Hewitt.
