Out and About

Tilden time



Atascosa wrapped up their livestock show so that means that McMullen County’s is coming up this week. Show your support by attending and/ or bidding on these students’ projects at our neighbors to the south.

State of Schools

Also, our Sports Editor Eric Smith is putting on his news reporting cap as well and is featuring McMullen Co. I.S.D. this week.

He has set up meetings with the superintendents at Poteet and Pleasanton and plans on meeting with Jourdanton’s and Charlotte’s as well.

PYF Equipment Auction

The Pleasanton Young Farmers are having their annual equipment auction at the Atascosa County Showbarn this Saturday.

They are accepting items this week and the big event will begin this Saturday at 10 a.m. for the larger items, noon for the smaller ones.

These men always have tons of equipment to auction – it benefits farmers and ranchers who need it and it helps the Young Farmers raise money for scholarships, etc.

For consignments or more information, contact Garry Katcsmorak at 830- 570-0631 or Randy Rice at 830-534-0131.

UFC feature

Our webmaster is at it again. She has another feature on a Pleasanton native doing their thing.

Check out Jessica Machado’s story on boxing trainer Rafael Casias. He has been training Johnny “Brutal” Bedford for his upcoming UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fight this Saturday, January 28.

Jessica, is the UFC expert in our office and she is helping to explain and teach it to us all! She and her entourage headed to the Metroplex area to interview and photograph Rafael in action (and to have a bit of fun as well!)
