i % V * * 1, *1 County Agents Report by David Sandefer County Extension Agent Texans have always been proud of their state, and the Texas "brag" is widely known. However, when it comes to ag- riculture, that "brag" is very real because agriculture is "big" in Texas. "It's appropriate to take a look at the state's agricultural industry as we enter the month of November, the month de- signated as • Texas Food and Fi- ber Abundance Month," says Charles Baker, marketing spe- cialist with the Texas Agricul- tural Extension Service, Texas A&M University. "For instance, consider that agriculture is a $10 billion in- dustry in Texas, second only to the oil and gas industry," points out Baker. "In addition, the ag- ricultural industry provides employment for 35 to 40 per cent of the Texas labor force." Of the state's approximate land area of 168 million acres, some 143 million acres are in farmland—more than any other state. Texas also boasts more and bigger farms than any other state in...

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 2 What Precinct Three can expect by Raul Trejo Winning for the people is not new for Hector Lozano, the ma- yor of Grulla and now the Pre- cinct Three County Commis- sioner-elect. Hector Lozano has plans for precinct threee, and he dis- cussed them with the Herald in an interview over coffee. Sunday the victory parade a- long with an afternoon bar-b- que followed by an evening vic- tory dance had taken most of Lozano's day and finding time for a quiet interview is quite a feat. The people of precinct three some 600 plus strong had been celebrating what one said "was not a victory for Lozano alone, but for the people who have wanted to go forward for a long time". Hector Lozano is 38 years old and has lived in Grulla all his life. He is married and the cou- ple has one daughter, Yvonne, 3 years old. He has been mayor of Grulla for the last seven years and the little community has seen much progress under Lozano. One of the projec...

Tuesday night at the regular meeting of the school board Gabert made a motion to award Superintendent S.P. Cowan a two year contract. Cowan has been without a vote of con- fidence for sometime, but Gabert managed to muster up enough votes to get him a two year contract. Although we feel that Cowan still does not have the con- fidence of the board, a two year contract is well deserved and we congratulate trustee^ Alex Gabert for recognizing Cowan and his work. Gabert said something Tuesday night that reminded us of our relationship with him. Although we feel that sometime back Gabert over stepped his boundaries in the employ- ment of personnel not recommended by Cowan, I feel that this one Item was In the direction of what Is best for the stude...

i THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 12 4-H Club News by Mari Montalvo 4-H Club Reporter Exciting, dynamic and decor- ative—who would have thought a few years ago these would be words describing light fixtures? Current fixtures are these things--and more, according to Patricia A. Bradshaw. The housing and home furnishing specialist with the Texas Agri- cultural Extension Service of Texas A&M University took a look at recent trends in lighting. "Today, lighting Is a decora- tive element in its own right, capable of creating moods, pro- viding effects and shaping space. "No longer Is a lamp simply a light source. "It works as an accessory piece and as an architectural detail to highlight and empha- size design, color and texture." Shoppers might keep this In mhid when choosing Christmas gifts. Gone are the days of lamps that just stood up straight, with ugly bulbs carefully hidden, Miss Bradshaw continued. "Now there are fixtures that look like the moon, resemb...
