EGGSTRA EFFORT: An undoubtedly toasty

EGGSTRA EFFORT: An undoubtedly toasty Cari Davis Conwell made sure that social distancing rules didn’t prevent local children from posing for photos with the Easter Bunny. On Sunday afternoon, a costumed Davis rode in the bed of a pickup driven by her husband Jimmy, making stops at the homes of many children in town. Shown here dressed as Anna from the movie Frozen and wearing a tiara is Emma Swindle, held by her mom, Jessi. COURTESY

Sunset on the Brazos

This angler wades into the Brazos River in Pecan Plantation at sunset to try to hook a trophy striped bass. Fishermen have reported catching stripers and crappie below the river bridge in Pecan. After a cool start to the week for fishermen and other outdoors enthusiasts, temperatures are expected to be back up in the lower 70s tomorrow and mid-60s the rest of the week. ROGER ENLOW

The late Hugh Raupe’s fascination with the courthouse clock began when he was a boy. “The first time I went up there (in the courthouse tower) was with John Wilson (the courthouse custodian) when I was a kid,” Raupe said in a 1993 Hood County News interview. The year was about 1939. Thirty years later Raupe began routinely climbing the 90-foot ladder to the tower to wind the clock. It was a ritual every Saturday morning. Raupe, who once served as Granbury mayor, gave up the clock winding in 1993 when his knees couldn’t handle the climb. These photos were taken in 1983 by Tommye Hiler. COURTESY

Huge chunks of the limestone cliff behind McDonald’s restaurant on Highway 144 gave way recently, leaving a major cleanup on the road. The road, however, is seldom used. It’s believed that erosion from rainwater shifted the dirt and rock that led to the slide. There appears to be other unstable areas on the cliff. ROGER ENLOW

Lake temperatures were rising into the 70s this week, and the fish are near their most active time of the year. If you can get on them when they are feeding, look out!

Gestures of kindness in these very curious days continue. Thank you to Pecaners for making the following events happen: a car show and drive-by with unique vehicles; a Granbury teacher caravan; the Giving Table in front of the golf cart shop; and the Pecan ladies who are busily making medical masks for Hood County nursing homes and have sewn more than 700 so far.
