Congratulations and many, many kudos to those who orchestrated the emergency plan after the major water line break in Comanche.

I’m now convinced that any crisis that occurs in Comanche County, our officials, emergency personnel, businesses as well as volunteer citizens’ immediate actions were professional and exemplary. Aren’t we fortunate to live in Comanche County?!

Without water the last few days really makes us all appreciate good, clean, and an abundance of good water. To take a bath and wash my hair, I filled buckets of water from our outside well, heated them on the stove, and could finally have a bath and wash my hair! It was mighty inconvenient and it’s no wonder, in the old days, people only took a bath on Saturday!!!

If you’re a parent of a toddler or the caregiver of a toddler, be sure to read about the upcoming Mom & Me Story Hour at the library. It’s a fun time for moms and children, and you’ll be introducing them to books and preparing them for school and much learning and enjoyment!

Mark your calendar for the annual Comanche County Healthcare Foundation (CCHF) fundraiser set for Saturday, September 21, starting at 5:30 p.m. It will be held at Evans’ Show Barn outside of Proctor. Tickets are $75 this year. See one of the directors for tickets.

The auction is always fun, especially with Dean Cagle and Dough Johnston as auctioneers.

All ticketholders will have a chance to win $1000 cash at the drawing held at the end of the event. You can’t leave early, because you have to be present to win!

Two of the featured auction items this year are a helicopter hog hunt and a zero turn lawn mower.

Since CCHF started having this annual fundraiser, it has raised $800,000 for equipment that is for patient care.

Let’s please be careful about grass fires. They are devastating not only to property, but the lives of firemen and homeowners. As Smokey the Bear said decades ago, “Only YOU can prevent forest (grass) fires!”

We have a new shipment of Comanche Study Club Books in our Little Book Store. I can guarantee these are excellent recipes in this good-looking, spiral bound books. I know most of those who submitted the recipes and have enjoyed many of those dishes in the book, and they are delicious!

We’re proud to announce that our 2019-2020 Hunters & Visitors Guide is being printed today and will be inserted in this week’s Comanche Chief. We will also distribute them around the area making them available for all our local and out-of-town hunters and visitors, as well as others.

Many, many thanks to all our loyal advertisers who support, understand and appreciate the economic importance of hunting and tourism in Comanche County.

Good luck to all our hunters, fishermen, and to all who love the great outdoors! For you dove hunters who prefer to hunt around stock tanks, it was good news that it’s not supposed to rain on Labor Day. Those birds should be thirsty!

Yesterday, August 26, 2019, the heat index was 108! But, I was happy to hear this morn, August 27, yesterday, could hopefully be our last triple digit day of the year. Looking forward to fall, my favorite time of the year!
