Remains thought to belong to DHS alum
Skeletal remains found in the cab of a pickup that had been in Lake Granbury are believed to be those of Helen Holladay, who has been missing since September 1979, Sheriff Roger Deeds confirmed Friday morning.
(Editor’s Note: Holladay was a member of the Dublin High School Class of 1951 while living in a nearby community. She may be remembered by locals under her maiden name of Helen Tatum which she kept until her first marriage, after which she was known as Helen Boatwright.)

Dublin ISD honors students, teachers

Farmers war for guar payments
“Everything was going fine, but it turned sour,” Dubliner Don Keith said of his experience in growing guar.
Keith, along with his brother, Robert, are among six Erath and Comanche farmers who grew the crop on consignment for West Texas Guar based in Brownfield last year and have yet to be paid.
Winter hurts Texas pecan production
Pecan production statewide was damaged by at least 25 percent from this winter’s hard freezes, with many crops experiencing total loss, state and local officials confirmed this week. The outlook for Texas fruit yields is still pending, they said, but so far not looking much better.

Turning Back The Pages
100 YEARS AGO
April 24, 1914
A horse and buggy belonging to a son of F.H. Henessee of the Greens Creek country disappeared from the Greens Creek Methodist Church.
The following day, the sheriff was notified of a man enroute to Desdemona who offered a handsome horse and buggy for $50.
Data compiled by the United States Department of Agriculture showed that rural school attendance in communities with improved highways was much higher than in localities where bad roads existed.
Reports showed 84 percent where good roads compared with 64 percent in states where roads are bad. Census reports 58 percent of Texas children attend school.
