Mid-Texas Symphony announces 38h season

SEGUIN – A symphony’s season is sometimes years in the making; there’s the music, the musicians, the venues, the guest artists and the myriad other things that must come together before a season is just “right.”
All those elements have merged and blended to bring you an unforgettable 38th Mid-Texas Symphony Season featuring composition by composers Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and Handel as well as Copland, Shostakovich, and Sibelius.

Adventures in the Old West

Seguin-based author Del David is promoting his action-packed book, “The Old Marshal’s Last Gunfight.”
The book’s chief character is Marshal Dave Stoutman who has his final gunfight at 70. He became a Texas Ranger at 18 to help bring justice to the Old West.
Written in the style of Louis L’Amour, the book details the encounters Stoutman has had his entire life in dealing with people who break the law. The settings are real, and the firearms are correct for the time period, David said.

Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Golden-cheeked warbler calls Texas its home

 There is much discussion recently about whether the golden-cheeked warbler should continue to be listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.

I expect the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service will require firm factual information before any de-listing is considered.  A five-year review completed by Fish and Wildlife in August 2014 led to its determination that the species was still endangered.
