Montague County has short early turnout

Published

Texas voters will be part of the “Super Tuesday” presidential primaries on March 1 as the two major political parties offer their candidates on the ballot for voters to consider.

In Montague County polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Ten voting locations will be open across the county as voters can vote at any of the 10 locations, not just their home precincts.

Elections Administrator Brandi Shipman said there has been a strong turnout in early voting and she anticipates good numbers for Tuesday. Through Thursday 13.22 percent (1,706) of the registered voters had cast ballots early. Shipman said that’s about where they numbers were during the last primary. Friday was the last day of early voting.

Sample ballots were in the Feb. 17 Bowie News and are on the county website at: www.co.montague.tx.us, click on the elections tab.

First official day of fall arrives Saturday

Published

Welcome fall! The official start of fall is Sept. 23 with the autumnal equinox. Not only do temperatures drop, but plant life slows down and so do we.
During an equinox, the Sun crosses the “celestial equator”—an imaginary extension of Earth’s equator line into space. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line.
After the autumnal equinox, days become shorter than nights as the Sun continues to rise later and nightfall arrives earlier. This ends with the winter solstice, after which days start to grow longer once again.

BISD bond proposal webpages go live

Bowie Independent School District Trustees got their first look at the bond proposal page on the district website and handled a brief agenda of business.
The board went into an executive session to discuss a salary addendum for Superintendent Blake Enlow. Earlier this summer trustees conducted the superintendent’s evaluation, but any salary changes usually come after the salary schedule is finalized. Any change to his contract also has to be done as an addendum.
After a 10-minute discussion in closed session the board voted back in open session to give the superintendent the same 2% raise as the rest of the non-step employees.
In his report, Enlow directed the board to the district webpage at bowieisd.net, where citizens can click the bond tab at the top of the page to access detailed information on the $65.8 million bond proposal.
