In the last decade, prominent band Midnight River Choir has steadily grasped success and garnered a sterling reputation.

Tireless in touring, Midnight River Choir routinely succumbs to bouts of wanderlust they quench by performing in small, medium and big venues dotting the nation’s landscape.

No strangers to the Texas music scene, they are famous for performing soothing, meaningful music, and have sealed their unique identity in the music realm.

The mesmerizing music was instrumental in setting the tone and taking attendees on a gripping, thrilling, angst-filled ride through the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth.

Sure, Fernandez has his share of favorite pastimes including dancing, singing, drawing and tennis – he’s on the varsity tennis team at San Marcos High School. 

What distinguishes him from his peers is that he is an accomplished actor devoted to pursuing his dreams.

Sub-themed “Summer’s Es: explore, expand, experience, enjoy,” the current exhibit at the Walkers’ Gallery, “New Horizons/Far Afield” has brought forth a collection of artworks as diverse as the local art community itself.  Among the scapes, escapes and breakthrough experiments are the artworks of several first-time exhibitors, including the work of students from a city of San Marcos Parks and Recreation-offered class.  

A Word About Recycling for July 10

An item from a recent Recycling Today eNewsletter which should make all of you who recycle your cardboard feel pleased.

“The Corrugated Packaging Alliance (CPA), Itasca, Illinois, has announced that the domestic recovery of old corrugated containers (OCC) increased by 3.7 percent in 2015, pushing the figure for the year to a record 92.9 percent.”

We find this increase came about because of a 3.5 percent increase in our use of such recovered material plus a 10.6 percent jump in the cardboard exports.
