BRINGING POWER

Last week's storm knocked out power to much of San Marcos. SMTX Utilities experienced 136 outages impacting 12,000 customers with 50 additional reports of downed lines that did not impact power. Neighboring utility providers including New Braunfels Utilities and city of Seguin Utilities along with three contractors helped SMTX Utilities with restoration and clean-up efforts. Total restoration of outages due to last Thursday’s storm was accomplished on Saturday night just before 10 p.m.

Allocations show sales slow down across San Marcos, county wide as well

It appears inflation and skyrocketing prices may be having an impact on local spending habits as there has been a decrease in sales tax allocations for San Marcos for this period and year to date. Several other cities across Hays have seen a similar decrease in spending compared to 2023 while others are still showing growth.

Widowed spouse makes plea to all living partners

DEAR ABBY: Today I ironed and folded my late husband’s lucky fishing shirt and placed it into a box going to Goodwill. Continuing with the task, I matched up 14 pairs of my good merino wool socks, most of which had been gifts from him in times that were not so flush. After three months, I have finally moved the box containing his ashes from the kitchen table.
