Economic development can be affected by false numbers

When a company or corporation is looking at a city as a possible site for location, the beauty--or the ugly--of that city is often found in its numbers. However, numbers, as in the case of the City of Gatesville, can be unreliable and deceiving. That was the message Gatesville City Manager Bill Parry told members of the Gatesville Chamber of Commerce at that group’s first quarterly breakfast on Wednesday at The Junction on 36.

Take or leave a book

Jenniffer Hudspeth loves to read and she wants to share that love with her neighborhood. Hudspeth recently installed the first Little Free Library in Gatesville at the intersection of Old Pidcoke Road and Woodville Drive. The Little Free Library operates on the concept of “take a book, leave a book.”

Hornet soccer boys rebound for 4-0 win

The Gatesville Hornets took it to the second place Mexia Blackcats Tuesday night, 4-0, and in the process moved up one notch in the District 17-4A standings. The win sent the Hornets into their Friday night game with first place La Vega with a chance to move up in the standing. They were in third place following the Tuesday win over the Blackcats.

Lady Eagles roll in finale

The Jonesboro Lady Eagles jumped on Evant early Tuesday night and rolled to a 76-21 victory to close out the regular season. With the win, the Lady Eagles claimed the District 25-1A championship with a 9-1 league mark (20-5 overall).
