Happy 50th Anniversary Ken and Jan Bigham March 14, 1953 to March 14, 2003 They were wed in Two Harbors, Minn. at the Methodist Church on March 14, 1953. They have three children: Larry Bigham of Lorena, TX; Tammy Bush of Brenham, TX; Bobbi Dickens of Indianapolis, IN; and nine granchildren. Their son, Scott, passed away in 1979. A party was held March 15 at the Austin Texas Star Meeting and Event Center in Manchaca. The farmers missed the "corn planting date" at least the date I knew when I was growing up. My father always, weather permitting, planted the corn on George Washington's birthday and several days after. With a one row planter pulled by a pair of mules, he did not cover many acres a day. I can still visualize my father in his faded overalls, patched shirt, frayed straw hat and the burlap covered water jug dangling from the seat of the planter-urging Kate and Beck to go a little faster, he had the mules and cows to feed before dark. Mom had fed the chickens and hogs and milked the cows with our help. That's the way it used to be - no kid- ding! Those were the good old days. Back to the present. St. John United Church was filled for morning worship service. Six new members were received into the membership. Mr. & Mrs. Troy Tanzer, Shannon Clifford, Stephen Courtaway, Mrs. Rose Sullivan and David Fehlis were welcomed. The abundance of food donated for the Food Bank was blessed and will be delivered to the Bank in Lockhart. Some sixty members, guests and visitors enjoyed the delicious food that was served after the servicd. The St. Patrick's day motif was carried out in the table decorations and food served by the "Goodie" Sunday committee. It's a good feeling to know God and Church are still impor- tant in our lives. Get well wishes go to Alvin Moczygemba who was hospi- talized has returned home. Happy Birthday to Betty Kleen, Sandra Jones, Mike Clifford, Rylee Holt and Krislyn Schnautz. The flowers at the Altar of St. John United Church were placed in memory of Rolf Reger of Wendelstin, Germany, who passed away on Feb. 7, 2003. Rolf was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Helmut Geger of Germany. The family has been friends of A.D. and Caroline Fuchs for many years and have visited each other several times. Sympathy is extended to the family of "Sonny" Hawkins, who's untimely death leaves many friends that will miss his dedication to the youth and fel- low workers of the Hays County Livestock Show and other events he was connected with. Gene and Grace Heideman of Albuquerque, New Mexico stopped by for a visit with Raymond and Myrtle Heideman last Thursday. They were on their way to Houston to visit their daughter, Brenda and fami- ly. Also to attend the wedding of a good friends' daughter.

(512)398- 4748 Good luck to the members of the 4-H who are participating in the Houston Livestock Show. Results next week. Water Controversy, from page 3 incensed that you [Kyle] have the te~aerity to make this application [to pump water from the aquifer]! My unfortunate response was gen- erally that 'having thirty years of experience representing clients before judges and administrative agencies, I am equally outraged to have a board member make such a statement in response to a legal and proper response by Kyle.'" After that 1998 meeting, Knight advised the city to hire a law firm run by Robin Lloyd in Austin which also represented Kyle in the latest matter. The 1998 request ultimately was granted. Knight also said it was inap- propriate for the BS/EACD to publish the aquifer board's final proposal on the latest matter in two Hays County newspapers before it went to the Kyle city council. "I have never witnessed a case as here where one governmental agency gave the news media a set- tlement offer prior to it being delivered to the other govern- ment," Knight said in the memo. 11740 Manchaca Road We've doubled our size to 15,000 square feet.
