“Thank you” for the honor of being selected Citizen of the Year.
Last Tuesday evening, a personal meeting was held with Mike Killgore, President, James Construction. He was in town reviewing Salado’s construction progress and attending a Wednesday meeting with TXDoT officials. According to Mike, the construction is on schedule. What he shared next was electrifying.
TxDOT not responsible for entry into Mill Creek
The low water crossing across Salado Creek by Sherrill Park is not a bridge according to their Chief Engineer, Bobby Littlefield, in a January 8, 2016 email:
Political signs are everywhere signaling election time. This year, the Mayor and 2 Aldermen/lady’s positions are on the ballot.
The article this week is written after much thought. If at all possible, the purpose is not to offend but be positive, encouraging, and informative as more than Village citizens read the Salado Village Voice; so do visitors and elected state/federal leaders. Salado is very special, wonderful and that should be highlighted positively and frequently. However this article is different and can possibly offend. At age11, I read a 4 July, 1952, full-page-ad that published a prayer written by Conrad Hilton, founder, Hilton Hotel. As a new year begins, the prayer is as meaningful today as it was then. If prayer offends, please consider not reading it.
Stroll weekends kick off holiday season in Salado

Highway speed reduced, town hall meeting set and Christmas Carol onstage
Please read the latest news on different fronts:
“It was cold, bleak, biting weather: foggy withal: and the people in the court outside could be heard, wheezing up and down, beating their hands upon their breasts, and stamping their feet upon the pavement stones to warm them. The city clocks had only struck three, but it was quiet dark already – it had not been light all day.”
Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”)
Remembering the first Thanksgiving feast
Richard Roger and Oscar Hammerstein wrote in The King and I, “Sometimes, I am not sure what I absolutely know is so.”
Putting things in perspective.
Kim Hill lives a long days drive from here. Diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia at age three, she remembers, “Days of chemotherapy and radiation treatments were painful and frightening. I never felt good when I was little. I always had pain, terribly nauseated, and stuck with big, long needles. I was always being taken out of school, in the hospital, or sick at home. I had few friends because in school, I thought every one was talking about me or looking at me.”
