Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday heard the importance of Palo Pinto Mountains State Park, and the impact the three area state parks have on the area.

 

Jeff Hinkson, of the Strawn Area Chamber of Commerce who has dedicated his time and resources toward development of the park located just west of Strawn surrounding Tucker Lake, spoke to the club as the Nov. 5 constitutional amendment election approaches.

 

One of 10 proposed constitutional amendments is Proposition 5, which if passed will dedicate revenue from the state's current outdoor sales tax to state park development, improvements and maintenance. Early voting begins Monday.

The late Zach Elder, Jimmy Ashby and Col. Willie H. Casper Jr. may be gone, but won't soon be forgotten. Rotary Club of Mineral Wells membership on Wednesday approved renaming three of its annual scholarship awards in their honor.

 

"This makes me, and all Rotarians, very happy to do this," said club President David May. "These three are held dearly in our hearts and now every year they will be remembered and honored by our club with the presentation of Rotary scholarships."

 
 

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells welcomed District 5790 Governor Peter Scott to Wednesday's meeting.

 

Governor Scott touched on the local club's current activities, programs and projects and stated the Mineral Wells club is a vibrant, engaged club within the community.

 

Scott touched largely on the importance of membership and membership growth to show its strength, diversity and reach. On the day of Governor Scott's visit, the club welcomed two new members, Marc Woolvard, an agent with Palo Pinto County Farm Bureau, and David Hawes, the city's current interim economic development director. Hawes is a past member and president of Mineral Wells Rotary.

 

 

With kickoff just nine days away, Mineral Wells High School Athletics Director and head football coach Gerald Perry teed things up Wednesday for Mineral Wells Rotarians, giving them some information and insights about the 2019 Rams team.

 

With just 11 seniors on this year's varsity squad, youth is the theme for this season as Perry and his coaching staff is working on growing and coaching them up since the team could rely heavily on a group of sophomores and freshmen.

 

Perry thinks despite having a young team (which he said should pay dividends in two years) they are not using that as an excuse. He said the program's goals remain the same: "Win a district championship, win a state championship and practice on Thanksgiving Day."

 

 

Thanks to Rotarian Jimmy Walker for his program at today's meeting, "Fear and Self-Doubt." Providing information about the fears and doubts we all have and how we can try to overcome them was entertaining, informative, inspirational.

 

Sharing your personal experience of fear and doubt in relation to your wife and her health brought the element of human emotion and some tears to several eyes.

 

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells meets every Wednesday at noon at Palo Pinto General Hospital for lunch, networking, updates on club news and events and a program of interest.

 

Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday heard of a good sign to come. The historic Crazy Water sign that once spanned Hubbard Street is nearing a return, thanks to the efforts of Leadership Mineral Wells Class 24 and a couple of recent major donations.

 

Rotarian and class member Cory Crenshaw led an update on the project that he said is now close enough to its funding goal that he is almost ready to place a deposit for the making of the sign and its supports.

 

The replicated, two-sided sign is planned to go across West Hubbard Street just west of U.S. Highway 281. While the west side of the sign will not be visible to passing westbound traffic, it will be seen by pedestrians downtown – especially once the proposed downtown park is created – and give people a chance to photograph it with the Baker Hotel in the background.

 

 

Rotary Club of Mineral Wells is pleased to announce First Financial Bank of Mineral Wells as its title sponsor for its first ever pancake supper – aka "Holiday Hotcakes Extravaganza" – set for Thursday, Dec. 12, at Mineral Wells High School.

 

The evening will be one of good food and holiday entertainment and fun.

 

"We are really excited about what we have planned for our first pancake supper," said club President David May. "There will be holiday music performances by local school and organizational singers, dancers and musicians. We will have Santa and Mrs. Clause on hand for photos with the kids. Plus some great food and best of all, it's all for a great cause. This is going to be big. We can't wait."

 

 

You might not think Palo Pinto County, with about 27,000 people, would generate a tremendous number of court cases but the numbers do not lie.

 

29th State District Court Judge Mike Moore was this week's Mineral Wells Rotary Club guest speaker. Moore is completing his second four-year term and said he hopes to serve at least one more term, possibly two. His court hears and handles a variety of cases – criminal, civil and family law – and has plenty of those on its dockets.

 

Moore said after disposing of around 8,000 cases in his first seven-plus years on the bench, his 29th district courtroom currently has 1,600 pending cases total. That includes over 500 felony criminal cases, some 90 Child Protection Services cases and around 900 civil and family law cases.


"It is just an incredible number of cases we have pending," said Moore.
