Despite weather, Austin trip a success

February 10, 2011

Weather kept some from attending, but even a slightly abridged version of Howard County Day in Austin was a success Wednesday, organizers said.

Up to 100 county residents attended the semi-annual affair, which is designed to make state legislators aware of Howard County and its concerns.

Even more people were expected, but icy roads in Central Texas forced cancellation of several bus trips scheduled to leave Big Spring early Wednesday morning.

However, most planned events went off as scheduled, said Debbye ValVerde, executive director of the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce. Area representatives were recognized during ceremonies in the House and Senate, a group photo was taken in the Capitol Rotunda and State Sen. Kel Seliger addressed the group during lunch at the Doubletree Hotel. State Rep. Jim Landtroop was unable to attend the lunch because of House business, ValVerde said.
