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 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.

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

"It is so much easier to teach than to learn."
Albert Payson Terhune
Whether or not we are ready, 2019 is here, bringing with it new challenges , new responsibilities and new opportunities to fail or succeed - all of this while maintaining what we are already charged to do. It seems overwhelming, but somehow we manage to navigate through all the obstacles and choices put in front of us. We manage each year to reinvent ourselves into whatever person we need to be to be the person we want to become.
So with that pep talk behind me, January will be a busy month. I hope to attend several basketball games at the high school and take some much need photos of those students who put so much effort into their schooling and athletic endeavors.
Another event at the high school this month is Homecoming. I will be there to see who is and who isn't there, so make plans to attend.
The final event on the calendar is the Fort Worth Stock Show. Poolville High School has four students who are showing animals this year, and I hope to catch each of them in the pens.
There is new content on the Community page with another interview yet to come. There is new content on the School page, and January birthdays are posted. The Featured Columns include the events from "Olde West History," "The Fencepost," and "Voices From the Past." The music schedules for January are also posted, and if you happend to be at the Stock Show on the 28th, 29th or 30th, stop by the George West Arena any time during the day for Music and Poetry of the West, a three day event of the IWMA (International Western Music Association) sponsored by the Texas Chapter. It's free with admission to the Stock Show.
And speaking of the Stock Show, there is a new page for this month which will have tid-bits of Stock Show information as the days unfold.
So friends, as they used to say when we all rode horses - "Saddle up, and check your cinch."
