Welcome to The Poolville Post - Online
The Poolville Post has been located in Poolville since July, 2012, and from the very beginning, the goal has been to provide "Positive news for and about the people who are Poolville, Texas."
Online Edition May - June 2019
The print version of the Poolville Post has been retired. It was owned, operated and published under the direction of Tacy Ellis. The online edition of the Poolville Post is its own entity, published by Greg Bade. Its primary purpose is to continue the "sense of community" that was developed during the printed version and keep it alive and healthy. It is the sincere hope of the online version that community members will continue to submit their stories, activities and significant happenings, so we can continue to keep you informed and perhaps even entertained. I will be looking for school news, church news, community news and VFD news to include in the online edition. As needs and wants grow and change, new pages or features can and will be added. It is my intention to publish the online version every two months at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September, and November.
Advertising will continue to cover the cost of running a website. Ads are limited to a business card size ad and will cost $15.00 per issue (two months). For a small additional fee, your ad can be linked to your business website. To view this feature, click on any ad or picture where you see a smiling yellow star. Classified ads are still free.

Checks should be made out to The Poolville Post. Ad deadlines are the 25th of the month preceding publication.

If you need to contact us or send us a story, the address is: email@example.com.
INFORMATION! ADS! CONTACT INFORMATION ! DEADLINES!
Why should you read the online edition? While the print version of any paper is inherently more exciting and even perhaps more personal (it arrives in your mailbox after all) than an online version, it is seldom read cover to cover at one sitting, and after a few days it may be used to mop up spilled tea, start a fire or line the bird cage. The online version will never suffer those calamities. It will be here until the next issue comes out, so you can return again and again. You can also send the link to friends around the country and around the world, and they can see what is happening in Poolville. With an online version, photographs can be published in color, and interviews can be recorded live, so you can actually hear the person speak. The possibilities are staggering.

A Word or Two From the Publisher - Greg Bade

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”
― Mark Twain
It has been a great spring for wild flowers and cool temperatures, probably a boon for those who are growing grapes; unfortunately it has also been very wet, so it is also a good time for ticks, mosquitoes and fleas. Check your fur babies and be mindful of standing water. More rain is in the forecast.
As the school year draws to a close there are many school activities happening. State competitions are in full swing, and Poolville students and parents have much to look forward to and be proud of. Many of those activities are covered on the School News pages.
Music schedules are posted on the Music page, and the May calendar is full of fun activities. Some of them are even free! Weatherford student Leah Sawyer will present her senior recital in the Poolville Tabernacle on May 16th, so if you like fiddle music, this is a grand opportunity for you.
Of course May is also graduation month, and senior pictures will be along soon. The Parker County Stock Show happens next month, so there is plenty going on.
There is a new column in the Featured Columns called Waynetta's Western Round-Up which will feature either print or audio interviews with famous and not so famous western personalities.
As always, each edition is a work in progress, so check back every once in a while. New content is on the way.
