This week we are reintroducing our Flashback column after a 20 year absence. Our newest employee, Esther Pokladnik, who is our comptroller, will be delving back into our bound books looking up tidbits of interesting info of what was happening 5-50 years ago! Have fun traveling back in time!
Ag columnist honored Joe Taylor, Texas AgriLife Extension Agent for our county, was honored for 30 years of service by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. Joe writes a weekly column here at the Express which keeps our agriculture related readers informed. He also is a great supporter of the 4-H clubs and the Atascosa Junior Livestock Show. Congrats, Joe!
