Middle School Stadium Temporarily closed

October 21, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo ISD released the following statement in regards to a temporary closing of old Bearcat Stadium on the campus of Aledo Middle School:

On October 19th, a routine inspection of the base of the stadium light poles at the Middle School Stadium revealed weaknesses in several bolts that anchor the poles into their concrete foundations.

In light of this discovery, the district has decided to take all safety precautions by closing the stadium grounds until the light poles can be taken down, assessed by an engineer, and the foundations repaired in alignment with all appropriate safety standards.

All students, staff and community members who use the Middle School Stadium should stay off the premises until repairs have been completed and the stadium has been re-opened.

Celebrate Texas Native Plant Week October 18 - 24

October 16, 2010 by Randy Keck

The second annual Texas Native Plant Week is October 18 - 24 and the Native Plant Society of Texas encourages the public to celebrate by learning about the wonders of native plants.
 
Native plants are a good choice whether you are planting a tree, shrub, flowers, vines or grasses because they are acclimated to your local conditions and soils, provide habitat for wildlife, typically require less water and maintenance once established, and do not rely on chemical fertilizers and pesticides to thrive.
 
These homegrown plants also give us a sense of place and help maintain the region’s wide variety of flora and fauna.
