Fiesta Pictures

Sunday, October 02, 2016 - Posted by Craig, in General News.

Our Lord provided some truly great weather for Coleman to take a day to celebrate Coleman.  This year, in addition to the many vendor and organizations showing their wares and services,  the planners added a live band, rides for kids and even a gun fight at the Outlaws Saloon.  The theme for the day seemed to be, SMILE -- or perhaps it was just contagious.

Dyess shows off the the Thunderbirds

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - Posted by Bernadette Allen, in General News., State, Country, International , Videos

May 3rd, 2015 - Day trip to Dyess Air Force Base, Abilene Texas to watch the amazing Thunderbirds.



 




We attended the Big Country AirFest at Dyess Air Force Base the first Sunday in May. What a wonderful day. Both the B1 and the C-130 were celebrating anniversaries of being at Dyess and they put on a particularly great show. Many aircraft were on display with guided tours being offered on many of them. Thanks to Jeff for my personal tour of the C-130J!

The airshow featured some really great acts. The ones that captured my fancy were the Air Force Thunderbirds, The Harrier Jet and the Russian MIG. There was also a bi-plane that was wonderful. The A/F and the Army had parachute jumping teams that were very interesting to watch.

The Air Force Thunderbirds closed the show. They were very interesting even before they took off. They have a precision routine set to music, which they perform as the airplanes are prepared for takeoff. They really are amazing to see.

The Harrier Jet is a joint effort between the US and Britain. It can take off vertically, like a helicopter. It can hover in the air and even back up. Amazing!

Thanks to all the wonderful people at Dyess and their guest performers for sharing such a special day with the community!

Max needs a new home.

Friday, May 08, 2015, in General News., Events and announcements


Hi, I'm Max. Ain't I handsome?! Well, I've got the goods to go with my looks. I've been to school and try real hard to be a good boy. I've been a house dog, but I'll stay in the yard if I have to as long as you've got a nice shelter and dog house for me. I'm not sure what breed mix I am. Dad may have had some Chow-Chow in him since I've got some black spots on my tongue. Mom? Probably some Setter or Retriever. Doesn't really matter. I'm just Max, and I'm waiting for you to reply to this post or call Sue at the Humane Society 325-636-8945 so you can come take me home. I'm neutered, house-trained, current on my vaccinations, about 5 years old, and ready to roll.
