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 July - August 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).

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.

Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
Music schedules are posted on the Music page, and the July calendar is also posted, but it has room for more activities, so if you want to add an event, please let me know.

Waynetta's Western Round-Up this month features an interview with Rick Wheat, and there is a reprint of last year's Fencepost article about a visit to Washington D.C. Another July appropriate article is found on the Featured Columns page under "Voices From the Past" along with a few photos of the Library of Congress.
The poets have submitted their July poems. You won't want to miss them.
Skye Clark has two new photos on the PS Page, and as always they are wonderful images.
Deputy Fire Chief has issued a cautionary statement at the bottom of this page.
As always, each edition is a work in progress, so check back every once in a while. New content is on the way.
A Veteran-whether active duty, retired, served one hitch, or reservist is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The Government of the United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including their life" That is honor, and there are too many people in this country who no longer understand it -Author unknown.
Summer has finally arrived, and with it of course comes July 4th, a day of celebration. It has been said that no other holiday embodies what our nation stands for than July 4th, but do be mindful of celebrating with sparklers and firecrackers in the country. There is always the danger of starting a fire, and livestock, horses, dogs and cats and some people too are fearful of loud noises. More dogs are lost in and around the fourth of July than any other time of the year. Please be considerate of your neighbors.
Warmer temperatures also bring out pesky insects and snakes, and there have already been several reports of snake bites this year. If you have to go out at night into the yard, take a flashlight and for goodness sakes wear some sort of footwear that covers most of your feet and ankles.
The good news about July is, it is a month for vacations, watermelons, peaches. fresh corn and cantaloupe.
