Eagle seniors’ privilege of painting

“The older you get the more rules they’re gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin’ man. L-i-v-i-n,” Trinity Garcia painted. Every year since 2015, incoming Pleasanton High School seniors express their creativity and individuality, a privilege of painting their parking space for the school year within administration guidelines and a small fee. This year, seniors gathered paint, supplies and ideas. They chose resonating, colorful designs related to childhood movies, pop culture and family.

Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton

I hope everybody’s having a great week. This weekend will be the first annual Cowboy Heritage Days in conjunction with the Young Farmers Cowboy of the Year and Rodeo. Come out for a good time and celebrate our connection to the cowboy way of life and our distinction as the birthplace of the cowboy in Texas. We are considered the birthplace of the cowboy because this is the first area in Texas that started working cattle like the vaqueros of Mexico did. The city has embraced that connection and continues to celebrate the American cowboy. The celebration will start on Friday. The rodeo will be Friday and Saturday with a dance following each performance. Come out and watch talented cowboys and cowgirls demonstrate their ability. There’ll be food, rides and entertainment. It’s not just a good time, it’s a way to celebrate the heritage of our city.

Pleasanton PD lobby renovated

The Tat Studio and Happy to Help All Around Services completed a renovation project for the lobby at the Pleasanton Police Department earlier this month. Owners of The Tat Studio, Paul and Rachel, planned the project months ago but were finally granted the opportunity in the first week of August. The idea came up after a discussion on making the Pleasanton Police Department lobby more comfortable and inviting as the PPD receives hundreds of guests and visi- tors from the community annually.

The Great Western Cattle Trail Marked in Pleasanton

Being the Chair of the Historical Commission is at times rewarding! This is one of those times. Let me give you a little backstory here. So, The Great Western Cattle Trail (GWCT) Marker is awarded to towns and areas where the GWCT is proven to have passed through. Pleasanton is one of those towns. Years ago, before anyone vividly remembers, the GWCT Marker was given to Pleasanton and somehow, someway, it became lost. Fast forward to modern day, and the subject comes up. Through a lot of help, I got in touch with Mr. Jeff Bearden. Jeff is Co-Chair of the Vernon Rotary Club “Marking the Great Western Trail” project, Great Western Cattle Trail Association Past President, and Wilbarger County Historical Commission Chairman. Mr. Bearden has been involved and has been a tremendous help to this acquisition of the marker. Without him, this marker would have never become a reality. Let me talk a little about this marker and trail.

San Antonio home with private cave explores the market at $875,000

Forget the man cave. Someone is about to become the new owner of a San Antonio-area home with its own Batman-worthy grotto. Originally listed in July at $950,000, the home now has a pending offer after the price was slashed by $75,000 to $875,000. Aside from the four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,745-square-foot home, the property features a cave discovered in 2004 when the current owners were clearing the more than two-and-a-half-acre homesite. The home — at 24811 Creek Loop in the gated Seven Hills Ranch neighborhood, just north of Garden Ridge — was completed in 2006.
