Ain’t Life Wonderful ?

We try to keep our mouth shut about politics these days. It’s the political climate in our world. We don’t seem to be able to have calm, searching conversations about what works and what’s
best any more. When we do get into a conversation we find that it quickly be-comes a debate that’s filled with baseless claims.

Lady Badgers Softball lost their first playoff game last night to Giddings 5-10. It started off right, with 0-0 at the end of the first and in the top of the second Megan Sittner banged one over the fence and there were RBIs and Lampasas was ahead 4-0, then Giddings came to bat
and bang, bang the hits the Giddings girls were coming across home plate, aided by a few Badger errors and some tough calls by the field umpire. When the inning was finally over it was 7-4 Giddings.

Lampasas City Council Decides on Rodeo Arena Plan

Lampasas City Council Decides on Rodeo Arena Plan

Lampasas City Council had lengthy discussion sessions last night, with a large part of the time spent on the rodeo arena to be built in the 580 Sports Park. It was finally decided that it would be located in the SE part of the park, just south of the softball fields. The plan is for the City to limit its funding to up to a maximum of $200 thousand, which would prevent the funding of a covered arena structure.
