Go fishing and make memories!

Reading a brief item in The Gatesville Messenger a few weeks ago brought back good memories to Laura Honea. In the “Whatever happened to” column in the newspaper, there was a mention of her late husband, Bob Honea, who had caught a giant 11-pound, 1-ounce black bass on the power company lake at Fairfield. The news of his big catch reached the newspaper and his picture appeared in the paper holding the giant bass on February 18, 1982.

Food Critic: The Rancho Nuevo Restaurant

As your local food critic I see it as my job to let you know where the good places to eat are. We take our families and friends in these places. Clubs meet in some of these restaurants. Therefore; I will not give bad restaurants my time. I will not mention who they are. If a restaurant wants me to give them a good review then they need to be a good and clean restaurant with good service. The waiters and waitresses need to be polite and helpful. If I mention a restaurant here then it is a place that I have eaten at and will go back to. They are a place that you should try. It will be a place that you can be proud to take your families and friends to. With that in mind I have another great restaurant that you need to know about.
