Ice storm on the Ranch. Coleman, Texas 2007

Sunday, January 28, 2018 - Posted by Craig, in General News., City news, Coleman scenery & photos, Videos, Weather


January of 2007 brought to Coleman, Texas the perfect set of super cold lower air and heavy rain. Ice formed instantly as it hit the surface.

Every twig grew 5 times its size with ice.


What is left of a yucca tree.


The infamous prickly pear.

Coleman, Texas is a quiet little town (5,000) located about 150 miles south west of Forth Worth and 55 miles south east of Abilene. Any further west and the world of green fades to brown as every living thing struggles for a drop of water. Coleman is wonderfully green in the spring and fall with weather that changes daily making it nearly impossible to know what to wear and when to plan, but we love it and call it home.

Wildlife is as diverse as the weather. If your driving through Texas on your way to get away from it all, stop on by, you will be pleasantly surprised!

I'll post some pictures of the quaint downtown as soon as I can get a chance.

Many blessings.

Coffey Anderson in Coleman Texas 2016

Sunday, October 23, 2016 - Posted by Craig Allen, in General News., City news, Coleman scenery & photos, Videos

Coleman was treated to a wealth of entertainment this last Saturday, October 22, 2016 as the annual Prickly Pear Festival came to life.


 
 
 
With some of the finest food and wine paired together anywhere, locals and visitors alike were treated to an amazing line up of musical talent. One of the artists; Coffey Anderson, stole the show for many as he is indeed the small town boy who made it big.

Coffey is a local, raised only a few miles east of Coleman in Bangs Texas and a graduate of Howard Payne university in Brownwood, Texas with a ministry degree. Coffey has not forgotten his roots.

Many there were inspired to find out that Coffey and his band have raised over $300,000 to refurbish and give, mortgage free housing to our vets in need. In doing this, he inspired other bands and record labels to get on board, resulting in more than 200 houses in total being built or refurbished for our wounded veterans.

Coffey, with a deep passion to create a bridge in racial and social differences made internet history by creating the first video on Facebook to have more than 30,000,000 (million) views.  This video has now been duplicated multiple times being both praised and criticized. Having this large internet audience, Coffey was invited to speak with President Obama at the POTUS town hall meeting filmed by ABC. 

Coleman is certainly honored to have been a part of Coffey's early environment where he participated in many small town youth activities that brought him to Coleman. Coffey's spiritual foundation is seen clearly now in his life as an entertainer as well as an inspirational speaker. Small town pride and small town values cannot be duplicated, depreciated or ignored!

ColemanConnected.com is proud to post this video that features a few minutes of music, a great ensemble of Sweet Home Alabama Texas, finishing up with few words from Coffey directly to Coleman and youth everywhere on his thoughts about  coming from a small town.

Video Interview with Calina Mishay Johnson

Saturday, October 22, 2016 - Posted by Craig Allen, in General News., Coleman scenery & photos, Videos

We had a chance to talk with Calina Mishay Johnson, the artist who is doing the mural downtown on College. As promised, she has returned today during the Prickly Pear Festival to add the finishing touches and it is simply vibrant.
 
It is easy to argue that this work of art adds much life to College street, yet even more, it will surely delight visitors and locals for years to come. Thank you Calina and to all who have contributed! Click read more to view the video.

Prickly Pear Mural

Sunday, October 16, 2016 - Posted by Craig Allen/Jeannie Moss, in General News., City news, Coleman scenery & photos

Hopefully by now you've had a chance to drive past the prickly pear mural that is nearly done and now exploding with color, located just east of the Shoppin' Basket on College, expertly painted on the north side of  Charlotte Purl's Uncommon Goods building.

The mural is simply stunning, it's a must see for all who come to Coleman, pictures simply don't do it justice, but we'll try.
