Commissioners Meet

Lampasas County Commissioners will likely be on hand, along with local law enforcement officials, at a special “Construction Progress Meeting” on Thursday. The construction of course is on the Lampasas Law Enforcement Center that is being built on the south side of Lampasas. The meeting will be at the construction side at 1210 Barnes Street at 9:30am.


Badger Varsity Football (1-0/3-3) will face possibly their biggest challenge of the season when they travel to Liberty Hill on Friday to meet the Panthers (1-0/4-1) who are now ranked at #4 in the entire 4A-1 Division. Lampasas is ranked #29 at this point.

Lampasas has an uphill battle for sure, and the game is to be played at Liberty Hill. That’s their turf, but at least, it’s artificial turf – not mud.
