LCRA/Hamilton County Electric Cooperative award $8,003 grant to Lometa ISD

The Lometa Independent School District soon will improve its track facility thanks to an $8,003 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority and Hamilton County Electric Cooperative. The grant, part of LCRA's Community Development Partnership Program, will enable Lometa ISD to add a 6-foot-tall fence around its track. An additional $7,000 in local matching funds will help pay for the fence.

The track surrounds the district's football field, which has a residential area on one side and a large pasture on the other. Domestic animals and wildlife are often found at the track, creating potentially unsafe situations for both students and visitors. The new fence will help keep animals away, making the football field and track safer and more secure.

Honoring our Heroes on Memorial Day

By Ray Vigil

On Memorial Day, we honor the soldiers and service members who have given their lives for our nation. Social Security respects the heroism and courage of our military service members, and we remember those who have given their lives in defense of freedom. Part of how we honor service members is the way we provide Social Security benefits.

The unexpected loss of a family member is a difficult experience for anyone. Social Security helps by providing benefits to protect service members’ dependents. Widows, widowers, and their dependent children may be eligible for Social Security survivors benefits. You can learn more about Social Security survivors benefits at www.socialsecurity. gov/survivors.
