FORSAN â€” While a lot of attention in Forsan Independent School District's bond election is focused on a proposal for a new elementary campus, the district has a lot planned for the junior high/high school building, as well.
Voters will decide next Saturday whether to approve a $23.8 million construction bond. The majority of that money is earmarked for a new campus to replace Elbow Elementary, but several million dollars would be funneled toward enhancements at the secondary building.
Many high school seniors are already making plans for college and Brady Gartman is certainly no different, except his college plans are, shall we say, a bit more regimented than most.
Gartman, a Forsan High School senior and the son of Dean and Misty Gartman of Glasscock County, has been accepted to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy starting in late June.
Gartman was nominated for the appointment by U.S. Representative Mike Conaway and received notification of his acceptance into the academy in late March.

Students whose work is on display and their family members will be admitted for free to the museum through the exhibit's run, Raney added.

Howard College officials see their new agriculture complex as both a tip of the hat to this area's past and a helping hand for the future.
The college officially unveiled its G.C. Broughton Jr. Complex Wednesday, a $2.6 million facility that will not only be home to the college's agriculture department but county extension offices and the 4-H Junior Livestock Show and other events.
The complex houses three sections â€” an open-air pavilion, a show barn and classroom spaces â€” and was financed entirely by grant money from the G.C. Broughton Jr. Foundation.
Officials with the city of Big Spring say water conservation efforts during the winter and spring months have gone well, but with little rain forecasted for the coming months, mandatory restrictions are likely on the horizon for the Crossroads area.
The city is currently in Stage 2 of its Drought Contingency Plan, which requires city water customers follow a number of outdoor water use restrictions, a contrast from the mandatory restrictions the city implemented last summer.
