In the August 14 issue of The Community News, an error was found that was too late to correct in a story about the Aledo ISD school tax rate.

The offending paragraph is toward the end of the article, with corrections as indicated:

"The bottom line is that the administration will ask the board to approve an overall I&S tax rate of about .43, which translates to an increase of about $430 per year on a home valued at $100,000. For the “average” home in the Aledo ISD, estimated to be $238,000, the debt service rate increase would be about $1,023 per year.

The actual increase would be about $180 per year on a $100,000 home, or about $428 on the average home.

We regret the error

We are a community

July 1, 2015 by Randy Keck

The reaction to a column in another newspaper last week led me to think about our community, and how it was so misinterpreted by someone who moved into Parker County to publish a newspaper.

I have come to know Parker County in whole, and Aledo in particular, over 20 years of publishing The Community News. And the number one word that comes to me when I think of where I live is “community.”

Woven into the word and into the very fabric of where we live is “unity.”

Administrative error led to excessive rainfall

June 1, 2015 by Randy Keck

After publication of this column last week, I was asked to share it online. I originally wrote it in 2007, but it seemed applicable to the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy.

Rainfall for 2015 has been WAY above average, especially after the last few years of drought, and I decided that a good investigative reporter ought to be able to find out why. But where do you go to check for such things?

I found the answers I was looking for at the Rainfall Division of the Heavenly Office of Answered Prayers (HOAP). Don’t ask me how I reached them – it’s a confidential source.

Family pet is missing and we need your help

December 18, 2013 by bearcat4life

Our cat slipped outside on Tuesday and she is still missing. Our home backs up to Quail Run in Deer Creek Estates. Her fur is Orange and she will answer to any name if you have food.

She is an indoor cat but she still has her claws. I just went door to door on Quail Run with no luck.

We are hoping that a nice family saw her and took her in knowing that her family is looking for her.

If you have any information please call me at 817-925-2993
