United Way needs you

The Greater Ennis United Way had a tough year. Drops in donations put a damper on some really tremendous efforts by those charged with raising funds for our local UW. This has made for some tough decisions by the GEUW Board, of which I’m a member. Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to hear […]

Hazard study is a good step

Knowing what kind of potentially dangerous materials are traveling around the transit lines of our county seems like it would be a no-brainer, a kind of regulation that makes perfect sense for a county’s safety. The Ellis County Local Emergency Planning Committee should have access to this information, but it doesn’t right now. We don’t […]

The information published in today’s edition about the rights of property owners in regard to tax law is valuable for every homeowner, business owner or person considering the step of purchasing a home. Click here to sign up for our E-Edition and read the rest of the story!

We’ve heard tell that bluebonnet season could be a solid one this year despite the freeze earlier this month.

Market coming at right time

Efforts to improve upon the offerings of the Ennis Farmer’s Market are driving a level of enthusiasm that will make April that much more of an awesome month in this community this year. Not only is the Bluebonnet Trails season opening for our enjoyment, with its associated festival coming on April 12-13, the end of […]

Education Foundation’s first benefit a success

The team who put together the first benefit for the Ennis ISD Education Foundation has taken an important initial step for the nonprofit group’s efforts to help drive improvements in education.

Heart of Ennis on display

Our town’s reaction to Sunday’s icy weather, and the havoc it wreaked on travelers passing our fair city should be a source of pride for everyone who calls Ennis home. Click here to sign up for our E-Edition and read the rest of the story!

A fond farewell

Parting is such sweet sorrow … but not as sweet as kolache I have foundered myself on during my short stay here in my beloved Ennis. It may take butter and a crow bar to get me into my convertible and headed east back to my current home of Alabama. I have packed as much […]

We should all be excited about YMCA

A local panel of leaders to head up the developments in establishing a local outlet for the YMCA is in place now, and we see positives coming in the future for youth activity in our community. Ennis has long since been in need of more positive outlets for the community’s younger set, and we have […]

Great reception no surprise

For the first time in more years than I can recall exactly, I drove into Ennis and immediately got lost.

Turnout shortfall in focus

Congratulations are certainly due to Judge Carol Bush and other local county candidates who claimed election outright in the primary election polling that wrapped with Election Day on Tuesday.

Poised for little change

Frankly, the relative lack of candidates in the upcoming races for the Ennis City Commission is not much of a surprise.

Last chance to cast votes

There is one more chance to cast ballots in the party primary elections coming up — Election Day itself on Tuesday. We can’t stress enough how important the outcome of polling will be for a number of positions countywide, including the county judgeship and commissioners posts.

We all understand the urge to save an extra buck or two, especially when tax time comes around each year.

Early voting is speeding toward its conclusion in primary elections that will decide the fate of several county and state offices.

Spring is just around the corner and the Ennis Chamber of Commerce is preparing for all the great events that it will bring to our community. Click here to sign up for our E-Edition and read the rest of the story!

Appeal victory a huge win

The Ennis Independent School District leadership deserves high praise for its recent triumph in a rare successful redistricting appeal in front of the University Interscholastic League’s appellate board.

Quiet zone concept a positive

Ennis resident Richard Bell has to be pleased the city has begun investigating in earnest whether it can achieve the ratings necessary to designate a quiet zone in downtown at a reasonable cost to taxpayers.
