VOLUME 27, NO. 197 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2012


T.V.E Opening Day: The 104thTrinity Valley Exposition Fair and Rodeo continues tomorrow morning with the opening day parade down Main Street in Liberty. Then, it’s over to the fairgrounds for all the other great TVE activities, including the youth livestock show, carnival, and exciting bull riding action. Tomorrow’s activities begin with the Kiddie Trailride. That gets under way at 8 a.m. on the Pickett Ranch across from Happy Chap’s on SH 146 near FM 1011. The opening day parade starts at 10 a.m. and travels south on Main past the courthouse before turning west on Sam Houston. TVE Gates open at 11 a.m. and the carnival also starts at 11 on the fairgrounds and continues until midnight.


Ag Mechanics: For the first time in many years, the T.V.E. held an Ag Mechanics competition, and coming in first place was the fully restored 1958 Farmall cub tractor of the grand champion winning team from the Hardin Ag Department. That team included Galen Duty, Jake Thonsgaard, and Corey Nance. Jake Thonsgaard said some 350 hours of labor went into completely disassembling and repainting the winning TVE project.


Kidfish: In spite of competition from a half dozen other events, there was a good turnout for the annual Kidfish Saturday at Liberty Municipal Park. Sponsored by BJ Ford and the Burnham family, 154 anglers ages 16 and under came to fish. The longest fish caught in the six and under division was by five year old Charlie Vance and four year old Zane Mansure who each landed a 26” fish.


Great Pumpkin Bash: It’s called the Great Pumpkin Bash, and while no pumpkins are hurt in the bashing, it’s still a lot of fun. Starting next Monday, the Liberty Library will have free pumpkins available, one per family, pick one up, decorate it, and then bring it back. Liberty Library Director Dana Abshire said there is the rule that you don’t hurt the pumpkins, so no carving please. She said participants have used paint, clothing, feathers and all manner of decorations to dress up their pumpkins in the past. For information on the Great Pumpkin Bash, call the Liberty Library at (936) 336-8901.


Obituaries: Betty Jean Keith, 80 of Old River-Winfree. Services today at 2 p.m. at Sterling Funeral Home in Dayton.
