My name is Diane Paul, and I live on the Terlingua Ranch as a property owner for 8 yrs. I work out of town, although, get back and forth each week. I am conducting a survey, along with some other health care professionals, for South Brewster County about health care needs in our area, or lack of. It is a 4 question survey, short and precise, about some of the most important needs we have regarding available health care. I have attached the survey for you to see. I would like to post an announcement in the Moon of 2 dates, and times, that I will be at the Cottonwood Store in Studybutte to personally conduct this survey, as it will end Jan. 15.
I also have placed the survey at 4 local establishments in a large brown envelope for our communities to get involved. Those places are;
1. Needful Things Country Store
2. The American Legion off Hwy 118
3. General Store at Lajitas
4. Terlingua Ranch Office.
The dates I will be at the Cottonwood Store, will be, Jan. 6, on Tues. from 2-6pm, and Jan. 10, from 11am-3pm. My ph. # is 979-218-3769. If you have any other suggestions in promoting this survey, please let me know. Thank you for all you do for our community! dp
The recycling trailer has been emptied and is now accepting more. Thanks to Todd, Barb, and Liam Bureau, Sue and Dan Carlson, John Calomeni, Sue and Joe Rife, and the National Park for their help. PLEASE.... no hard plastic, no batteries of any kind, no plastic sacks, Styrofoam, oil containers (not even vegetable ones), or spray cans. We had to return with two large sacks of TRASH... trash is not recycling. However, thanks to the rest of you who make our volunteer job easier

2015 calendars featuring the work of local artists are nearly sold out! There are some calendars left at two venues in town: High Sierra Bar and Grill and the gift shop in the lobby of Forever Resorts (motor inn). These calendars make great gifts, and are a wonderful tribute to our fellow artist Mark Kneeskern, whose life was celebrated this past weekend by friends and family from near and far. Many thanks go out to the artists who donated images, and especially to Lauren Stedman for her design, Ruth Jansyn for her support, and Mindy Hamlett for handling distribution. Thanks also to George Womack for images of his collection of Mark's work. Any profit on the sales will be used for promoting local artists and their work.
