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 January - February 2020
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.

The Poolville Post - P.O. Box 320 - Poolville, Texas 76487.
Checks should be made out to The Poolville Post. Ad deadlines are the 25th of the month preceding publication.
Please support our advertisers, and when you do, tell them you saw their ad in the Poolville Post - Online. They are the ones who pay for this publication.
If you need to contact us or send us a story, the address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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

Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
"January is the quietest month in the garden..."
Rosalie Muller Wright, Editor of Sunset Magazine
A new year, a new decade, and new possibilities. While there doesn’t seem to be much going on at the moment, as most of us recoup from Christmas and New Year’s and students enjoy the last few days of their winter vacations, there certainly things afoot in January, and as people begin to emerge from their winter slumbers, columns and news will be updated.
The schools will begin again January 6th, and there are a few Ag students who are busy preparing for the Houston Livestock show that begins in a few days. Other students are looking forward to playing baseball. That season begins February 2nd. February will also be an anniversary of sorts: It will be six years that the Poolville Post has been an online paper.
On a personal note, I am very pleased to announced that I will be a co-host for an event at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo that is twenty three years old: “Music and Poetry of the West,” previously known as “Campfire Tales.” It begins January 27th and runs through January 29th. There will certainly be more news about this as the date gets closer, but feel free to send me an email if you have any questions. The scholarship fiddle contest is the 27th at 5:00 PM.
For now, the music schedules have been updated, January birthdays are listed, the calendar is posted and there is an updated column in the Featured Columns – A Voice From the Past.
What is yet to come? Hopefully a new column for Waynetta’s Western Round-up, a new offering from the folks at Downunder Horsemanship, perhaps a blog or two from Skye Clark and some new poems and another article From The Fence Post. Lots of possibilities coming along.
