Booted from the Alamo, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas kept treasured library

San Antonio celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2018. The history of the city —and of Texas — comes to life in the artwork, manuscripts and maps of a library that has recently found a new home.

BY ALEX ARRIAGA Jan. 1, 2018, The Texas Tribune texastribune.org

SAN ANTONIO — When the state fired the Daughters of the Republic of Texas as caretakers of the Alamo in 2015, the women's group fought — and won — the right to keep a piece of the shrine that they considered sacred: an archive collection of 38,000 photographs, artworks, maps and manuscripts prized by Texas historians.

DKG Welcomes Teachers with Ice Cream Social

The Gamma Tau Chapter of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International welcomed the Rotan ISD teachers and faculty with an Ice Cream Social in the Rotan ISD LRC after school on Monday, September 18, 2017, following a brief business meeting led by Mary Ann Marshall, president. Members enjoyed walking through the library and noticing the changes since they had been in the building. Of special interest was the LRC north wall of decorations from past years. DeeAnn Mullins pointed out the part of a band uniform from when she was in RHS, and an enlarged picture taken in the early 80’s when Marshall’s daughter, Jerilyn, was a twirler in the RHS band. Mullins reminded the group that more information was researched over the internet, so there was less need for encyclopedia books.

Coastal cotton industry hit hard by Hurricane Harvey

CORPUS CHRISTI – Hurricane Harvey and its after-effects have the coastal cotton industry reeling, according to Texas A&M AgriLife experts.

Dr. John Robinson, College Station, said harvest activities were 40 percent complete leading up to the arrival of Hurricane Harvey and estimated 300,000 to 400,000 bales of cotton were still on the stalk prior to the storm.

“One producer I talked to said three quarters of his cotton was on the ground from the heavy rain and high winds,” he said. Harvested cotton could also be impacted, he said.
