TEXAS HISTORY MINUTE

Many historians have called Stephen F. Austin the “father of Texas” for his efforts to bring the first settlers from the United States into Texas. But the story begins with his own father, businessman and visionary Moses Austin, who in his own way became the “grandfather of Texas.”

Last week was the Atlanta Area Fall Job Fair, a joint effort between the Atlanta Area Chamber of Commerce and the Cass County Citizens Journal-Sun. While the event was deemed successful by those in attendance, participating employers may still have some unfilled positions. This is where the Chamber’s new website might be useful!

I live in a small town of 5,500 people. I have watched covid cases rise and fall since Jan 2020. But today was my family’s day to get covid. After homeschooling my kids while going to college online at A&M Texarkana all throughout 2020 and 2021. The small town of Atlanta did so great the first 1st year of covid. However, 2021 was a different story. People stop caring about covid. Even though the hospital asks people to mask up and vaccinate. Or even stay at home. Atlanta continued to have events and gather without masks.
