BE COUNTED
URGENT! Due to the necessary Coronavirus focus, Oklahoma has lagged behind in participation in the 2020 U.S. Census that's also underway. The good news is that you can "get counted" easily online! According to  Garvin County News Star , Garvin County's response is 35% when the national average right now is 45%. An accurate population count is necessary because it determines representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Data also determines what share of funds go for "schools, hospitals, roads, public works, fire departments and other vital programs." DO YOUR PART and get counted online (if you haven't yet) at  https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond.html .
PHOTOS OF THE PAST... FOR THE FUTURE
Note to self: The Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2021. We're seeking artifacts and especially photos of those early years. Please submit digital copies of photos to businessservices@paulsvalleychamber.com .
LIKING WHAT'S IN THE LENS
"I was admiring the new look at the Santa Fe Depot yesterday, and decided to get a current pic of it. The new paint job is great; makes it look almost new again! All the trim painted, doors, windows, etc., really looks uptown!" -- Doug Strickland
