2016 Cowboy Camp – A great success

Dear Editor,

Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum’s Cowboy Camp 2016 started off Monday, Aug. 1 with a bang; no kidding. The campers fired rubber bands at targets made by Dan Glidden, from long guns produced at Goebel Construction Company following a presentation and discussion of Dan’s collection of period fire arms and weapons. Tuesday, Joe Contreras from Institute of Texan Cultures in San Antonio discussed the American bison and it’s role in Western history. The campers tooled leather head bands, bracelets, and cut-outs with materials and tools provided by Circle Y in Yoakum and Carolyn Leist. They learned to tie knots cowboys need to know with rope provided by Tractor Supply.

‘Waste of money’ at estate sale

Dear Editor 

We went to an estate sale and bought a filing cabinet that is a waste of money because it’s a piece of junk. I wish they had left the drawers in it.
