Sun, 03/20/2011 (All day)

The First Annual Chandor Gardens Spring Bridal Show, Say yes to Romance, is set for Sunday, March 20. The event will unfold throughout the beautiful Chandor Gardens and will feature over 35 vendors.

“This is a first for Chandor Gardens; however, there is no better place than the gardens to host such an event,” says Danielle Felts, Director of Recreation for the City of Weatherford. “Just as Chandor is a site for many special events, the vendors’ on-hand are also available for corporate functions, anniversary celebrations and the like, so it simply makes sense to offer this opportunity at the gardens.”

Enjoy a live fashion show scheduled to begin at 3:00, along with a “Cake Off” judged by special guests. Door Prizes will be awarded throughout the day.

A special message to our subscribers

March 11, 2011 by Randy Keck

I am writing this message to let our subscribers know that you will probably not receive your paper in the mail this week until Saturday.

The United States Post Office in Aledo has implemented a new system that caught us off guard this week. I was informed two weeks ago that under the new system, we would not be able to mail our papers after 4 p.m. on Thursday. When our papers arrived at the post office at about 3:30 yesterday, the post office refused to accept the mailing because it was after 3 p.m.

This is yet another in a growing list of new procedures over the last year that make one thing entirely clear: the post office does not want our business.
