Thank you, Barbara, for the excellent, front-page article about the airport. Most citizens don’t recognize the value of an airport to a community, usually ranting about costs and ignoring benefits. Your article was very informative.
The article about the origin of Bowie should spark interest in our history. That is good for our natives as well as those who have chosen to live in Bowie. The Fort Worth Denver City railway depot always fascinated me as a child, though the Rock Island Railroad was my favorite because it brought my older sister home on visits from her job in Oklahoma at the Douglas Aircraft plant during WWII.
Again, thanks for the great articles. Keep up the good work!
