Saturday May 22nd was a busy day in Winnsboro, TX, with the city's Farmer's Market celebrating a big grand re-opening on Carnegie Street, the Winnsboro Rodeo Association running a longhorn cattle drive down Main Street, and town Historian Bill Jones speaking at the Winnsboro History Museum at the Depot.
The Farmer's Market was relocated this year from Market Street (last year) to the new concrete pavilions on Carnegie. Parks and Recs director and Farmer's Market manager Stacy Finley welcomed everyone from the outdoor stage, and thanked Denise Miranda f(former Main Street Director, now retired) for spearheading the revitalization of the Farmer's Market a dozen years ago. At 9:30 vendors assembled for a Ribbon Cutting, and cake, and live music was provided by Kevin Tinney and Chase Glover.
There's plenty of parking on Carnegie for shoppers, and the pavilions hold many vendors selling vegetables and local hand made goods and plants.
At 10 a.m., the 61st Annual Winnsboro Rodeo Association started their Longhorn cattle drive and wagon train from their WRA Rodeo grounds near city park, headed down Coke Road (FM515) to Main Street, north on Main past city hall and the crossroads at Hwy 11. (Broadway), up north Main Street through the heart of downtown to east on Locust Street, past the post office and south on Walnut, then east on Hwy 11 back to the rodeo grounds. The Texas Spirit Riders horse rider drill team joined in the drive, complete with western apparel costumes and flags.
At 11 a.m., the Winnsboro Museum board hosted a talk by official town Historian Bill Jones, who gave a speach on the history of the original Winnsboro Farmer's Market from its roots in the 1800s, as well as some historical vignettes of the city's history and the Depot's Railroad roots.

WOOD COUNTY RETIRES K9 JUMA TO CONSTABLE SMITH
K9 MATA TAKES THE REINS AS TOP DOG
[Wood County, TX] - 9/22/20
Wood County K9 Officer Juma was retired by Wood County Commissioners, and K9 Mata took the reins under handler Constable Kelly Smith, Precinct 2.
K9 Officer Juma was retired for health reasons, to the permanent ownership of Smith. Wood County Judge Lucy Hebron read a proclamation recognizing Juma for her service and duty to the county for the past two years.
K9 Officer Mata is a two-year old highly trained GSD with more skills than Juma. Funding for the trained K9 officer came from $13,500 in donations from Wood County citizens, mostly in precinct 2, and surrounding areas to K9Officer.Org, who accepted the charity donation to Wood County under Texas local government code 81.032. An additional $3,000 was raised from across the country. K9 Mata will continue advanced maintenance training in the future.
