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 2021
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.

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
(January - February)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
As I was coming back from an overdue trip to the feed store, driving through the blowing, cold rain, I thought to myself, this is not good weather to be out if you are a lost, stray or homeless dog, and indeed it isn’t for any domestic house pet or critter that is not used to harsh weather. Please tend to your furry friends and at least offer them refuge from the blowing, wet winds, even if you cannot bring them inside.
As the new year unfolds with uncertainty, we remain hopeful that life will return to something a bit more normal than we have experienced in the last nine months, but the change will not happen overnight. Slow and steady stays the course.
With those thoughts, there are many events that have not been thoroughly covered this past year, concerts that have not been attended, restaurants that have not been visited, even church services that have not been attended, and yet, we are still here, plugging along and doing what we can.
It is with much gratitude that the online Poolville Post begins its seventh year, so thank you to all who have participated in keeping a dream alive, whether it has been through submissions, sponsorships or readership. Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see in the coming year, and please do not be shy about sharing positive Poolville news with your neighbors.

“Though it was the end of February, the day was a lazy sort of cold. The sun slipped through the cloud in bursts, reminding the landscape that it was still there, prodding snow piles to relax into puddles and stirring sleeping seeds under the ground.”
