Saturday in the Park

The annual prequel to this weekend's OKTOBERFEST was the 2013 Saturday in the Park in DeKalb. Chili cookoff contenders, vendors and a great crowd of all ages filled DeKalb's City Park and enjoyed events like the Donut Eating Contest, games hosted by the Girl Scouts, Pumpkin Decorating and the always popular Ice Cream Social.

This Friday night and Saturday is OKTOBERFEST with amusement rides out on the DeKalb Trace and the downtown area filled with food, fun and frivolity for everyone in the family. Be sure to check out the Art Show, the Quilt Show and the Kid's Korner and go ready to eat as there will be food booths all over the place.  Don't miss the special Pies in a Jar at the Williams House Museum and Saturday night be ready to go boot scootin' at the street dance. This year's music will be Etched in Black and they will rock the downtown area from 9 p.m. to midnight to close out the day's festivities.

Winter Pasture Planting Tips

With the widespread rain received recently, soil moisture levels are looking a lot better just in time for winter pasture planting. Winter pastures can often provide some of the most nutritious forage we are capable of growing in Northeast Texas, often exceeding the nutrient requirements of our livestock.

When soil moisture conditions allow for early planting, small grain pastures can often provide grazing from December to April. Mixing ryegrass with a small grain can push the grazing window into May. Ryegrass only and ryegrass-legume pastures can often be used from February into May. Excess winter forage can be harvested by bringing in extra animal units for short-term grazing or by cutting and storing as either dry hay or haylage, depending on weather conditions.

A community partnership

Bowie County Citizens Tribune Ad Director Andy Craytor presents a $1,000 check to New Boston Athletic Boosters President Deborah Pinkham.
The donation was made after a partnership with the Tribune and the booster club resulted in overwhelming support from area businesses in producing the Lions poster seen in the background and now hanging all over the city.
