Museum Acquires Photo Collection

The Historical Society has just acquired the entire Wayne DuBose photo collection. It's quite a treasure trove of Skidmore History including photos, negatives, film, clippings, etc. If Mr. DuBose photographed your wedding, quinceanera, or other event, we will be happy to allow you to make new prints from the negatives.

Storm Damages S-TISD Sports Complex

Tuesday's high winds and possible tornado caused extensive damage to the sport facilities at Skidmore-Tynan ISD. Fences were down at the baseball field and ag farm. Both batting cages were destroyed and the softball scoreboard was bent over 45 degrees.

At Bobcat Stadium, the roof was torn off the old concessions stand and carried across the football field where it destroyed a section of the retainer wall in front of the new concessions area. The visitor-side ticket booth lost its roof and one cinderblock wall was reduced to rubble.

No apparent damage was done to the new elementary.
