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 November - December 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.

A Word or Two From the Publisher - Greg Bade
(November - December)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
“In November, the smell of food is different ….it can fill up a house in the morning, can pull everyone from bed in a fog. Food is better in November than any other time of year.”
Update 12-04-19: From the Fence Post - Featured Columns Page
So it seems we have all survived the wrath of November and are being greeted by a sunny although a bit cool December 1st. Of course we all know it is December because the stores have been reminding us for the last month and a half, but so it goes. I prefer to celebrate December in December.
While this issue is not yet fully vetted, it is well on the way. On the Community Page there is a follow-up article on the lost Poolville dog, which thankfully has a happy ending. The Music Page boasts the December schedules for entertainment. The Calendar Page has some events for the month, but I am sure more will be added in the next few days. Photographer Skye Clark has a new book available title "Wyoming Wisdom," and you can find out more about that on the PS Page. What I hope will be a special treat for this month is the Poetry Corner. I have asked all the poets to submit their poems in an audio file so you can actually hear their voices. So far Poppa Mac is the only one available, but the others will be along, so watch for updates or just come back. I would also like to welcome a new advertiser, Atex Trash Service.
Since it is December, I would also like to remind you that most of the contributors to this paper have either CD's or books or photos available for purchase. Any of these would make good Christmas gifts. Be sure to click on their links to find out more. I know they would appreciate hearing from you.
Wherever this December takes you, and no matter how you choose to spend it, I wish you all safe travels and a blessed holiday season. I thank you for your contributions and your continued support of the Poolville Post as we move into its seventh year of Internet life.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas
Greg Bade - Editor and Publisher
