The Barbara Bush Middle School 8th graders are about to embark on their high school careers.  In recognition and celebration of their middle school years we are hosting a party in their favor.  It is Saturday May 5th, 2007 from 7-9:30pm at the Holy Trinity Banquet Hall on Huebner Road.  The theme is masquerade and the dress is semi formal—DRESS TO IMPRESS!!  There will be a DJ providing the music, as well as food, door prizes and tons of fun.  We encourage every 8th grader to attend—and bring all your friends!

We are still accepting donations from area businesses and individuals to help defray the cost of the party or to purchase the door prizes.  If you would like to make a contribution please contact Nancy Woodall at nwoodall@satx.rr.com  or 481-9431.

A Brief History of Socks

1397

I don't know how much you may already know about handmade wool socks, but they are truly miraculous!

Handknitted stockings first appeared in Britain during the reign of Henry VIII. In 1560 his daughter Queen Elizabeth I received a gift of knitted silk stockings and declared she would never wear cloth stockings again because the knitted ones were so pleasant. Schools were created to teach knitting skills to children and the poor, and by the mid-seventeenth century people throughout the British countryside were knitting for income.  Throughout the nineteenth century, thousands of pairs of British stockings were exported to Europe & America.

Stone Oak street With 8-Foot Drop-Off Repaired

1350

Posted by:  Laura Berryhill

A neighborhood street divided by an eight-foot cliff has finally been fixed.

The uneven street was on Knights Cross off Stone Oak Parkway in far north San Antonio.

City Council says two separate developers built the street and never connected it. The eight-foot drop-off caused a problem for neighbors living on Knights Cross.

"It's quite inconvenient because we have children that go to Bush Middle School, " said Mikel Hill, who lives in Stone Oak. "We have to drive all the way around to get them to school."

After nearly a year of construction and a price tag of half a million dollars, Knights Cross is now connected. The repaired street opens to traffic today.
