Thank you Mexia

Dear Editor,
I would like to take the time and thank all those who voted in the recent City election in District 3. I realize that I did not win the election alone, but by your support. Finally, I pledge to continue to service the residents of Mexia to the best of my ability. Thank you.

Hendricks returns to Mexia after 45 years

Dear Editor,
I thought this is a bit of news. After 45 years coaching girl’s volleyball and track at the same school at Johnson Junior High in Channelview, Linda Hendrick is returning to Mexia. She is a 1968 graduate of Mexia High School.
She is the daughter of the late Luther and myself, Mildred. I am only 86 years old.

LCFA: The rest of the story

An open letter to Judge Burkeen Commissioners, and citizens of Limestone County,
After reading the letter in The Mexia News dated April, 18, I feel compelled to tell “the rest of the story for LCFA. Although I’m not a member of the board, I’ve volunteered with them for 10 years or more. LCFA is a 501(c)(3) organization formed for the purpose of providing a means for the youth of the county to raise and learn about animal management and o provide scholarship to at least one graduating senior from each high school in our county. Last year we were able to provide three scholarships to each school. LCFA is a volunteer organization and none of the board members receive any type of compensation.

The Healing of a Nation

Dear Editor,
My friends, would you agree with me that our nation needs to be healed? The question is, “What will heal our nation?” We have such division, corruption and violence.
Can a new president heal our nation? No, he cannot heal our nation.
Can people coming together heal our nation? No, but that sounds good.
So, what will it take to heal our divided nation? It’s really simple. God can heal our nation, but even He cannot heal us until we come to Him in sincere repentance. God wanted to heal Israel too, but they rejected Him and disobeyed Him. Aren’t we the same. Haven’t we taken God out of our nation and snubbed our nose at Him, and said, “We don’t need you. We’ll do it our way.”

Final goodbyes

Dear Editor,

I retired from Mexia State Supported Living Center as the Director on April 30 after working with the state of Texas for 28 years and at Mexia SSLC for 4.5 years. During these 4.5 years at Mexia SSLC I can honesty state I have not worked with a more dedicated bunch of folks during my entire 28 years’ career with the state. I wanted to thank each and every one at Mexia SSLC and wish them a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I have had a lot of current Mexia SSLC employees ask me what am I doing now after I retired. Effective Jan. 3, 2017 I will be the Executive Director at the Behavior Health Center of Nueces County, Corpus Christi. God bless and keep up the great work.

Sincerely,

Mike Davis

From bad to worse

Dear Editor;

 

I would like to ask your help in reporting the deplorable road conditions on FM 2705 off of Hwy 84 at Lake Mexia. Knife River Construction has the contract to widen this road for TxDot. 

They began their work in September to widen FM 2705. They began by digging up all of the pavement on the road and creating a wider dirt road. In many places this dirt road was in very bad condition. On Wednesday of last week, they began laying a six inch layer of sand on top of the hard packed dirt road. The weather forecast were already calling for rain over the next several days. As you can imagine, this new layer of sand became quick sand on our road. It is almost impassable. 

I have called Knife River and they instructed me to call TXDot.
