BURN BAN IN EFFECT -- Brewster County Commissioners Court voted this morning to put the burn ban in effect for Brewster County. This burn ban prohibits the outdoor burning of trash, debris, and brush in the unincorporated area of the county for 90 days. Currently, there is a large amount of grasses and other light fuels that are drying out in the area. The Keetch-Byram Drought Index puts the county at an average rating of 505 out of 800, high means dry. http://bigbendgazette.com/2016/07/26/brewster-county-burn-ban-in-effect

!!! VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!
SB Water Corp. says that one of the wells/pumps has gone out and they are running on one SMALL well. Please strongly advise the local public to use water extremely conservatively until further notice.
UPDATE: Study Butte Water - Update - just spoke to Paula at the water company. She said to please share the following. The motor on the pump (on the larger well) is dead and will have to be replaced, and according to the people working on the well, it could take several weeks to a month to get a new one in. They are asking people to conserve water as the currently operating well only pumps about 1/3 the volume of the larger one. So - no car washing, turn off the water to soap up while showering, no long showers, don't let the water run while brushing your teeth or washing dishes, etc., etc. They have put up notices at the various restaurants, stores, and the post office and she said they will begin calling customers tomorrow. For people who buy water to haul, they will probably be limiting the amount that you can get.
Terlingua has lost a long-time resident, friend and beautiful soul: Mozelle Jeffrey died this week on Saturday morning, July 22, 2016, in North Carolina, due to heart-related health issues. Please join us in our condolences to her family and all her friends, and let us share in our grieving with memories of her presence in our community. Mozelle donated her body to scientific research. There will be a memorial planned for this fall in Terlingua, and more information will be available later.

Ronald Steinmann needs a live-in house sitter for Sept.3 -Sept 10th to take care of the house, greenhouse, 2 outside vegetable gardens and some small fruit trees along with 20 laying chickens. Misters and sprinklers set up for gardens need to be turned on and off morning and evening. There is a room A.C. in the main bedroom and central air. Eggs and all veggies available for an individual(s) during this time period and as added incentive an upright Kenmore freezer which runs good, is clean with no rust and I haven't been using, for a RESPONSIBLE individual willing to make sure that I don't come back to dead chickens and gardens. If interested call 371-2328 or email email@example.com for directions to the property on upper Ross Drive. P.S. I can't offer any money since I use the gardens and chicken eggs to augment a meager S.S. check!
