Art & Wine Festival to uncork fun

By LYNDA STRINGER

This year’s Pittsburg Art & Wine festival will deliver more of what people love about the Main Street event: artisans, Texas wineries, food, and music. The event will be held Saturday, May 26, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It’s the sixth year for the festival organized by the City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Main Street and its second year to be held at the city’s newest gathering spot.

 

The first year, Main Street hosted the fledgling event at Compress Alley downtown with 15 vendors, including five wineries. It moved over to Pendergrass Park for three years and then to the larger and more visible Pilgrim Plaza Park on the east end of Pittsburg’s Main Street adjacent to the Prayer Tower. “We have outgrown the previous locations, and that means it’s a healthy event,” said City Manager Clint Hardeman. “It continues to have success and grow not only from a vendor standpoint but an attendance standpoint.”

By LYNDA STRINGER

 

As they put the finishing touches on their final days of high school, the Class of 2018 at Pittsburg High School took a few moments to reflect on some of their most memorable moments. This week they are wrapping up finals, making sure they mailed all their graduation invitations and making plans for their futures whether the next step is college, trade school, or hanging up their backpacks for good and heading into the workforce.

 

There’s excitement in the air as well as that bittersweet undercurrent of sadness that it is all coming to an end. The seniors will be saying goodbyes to friends, teachers, and family as they head out into the world of adulting. But, the memories they’ve made will stay with them forever.

Pittsburg Fire Department fundraiser a success

By ELLIS KNOX

 

The Pittsburg community came through in a big way in support of the Pittsburg Fire Department at Saturday’s fire equipment fundraiser. Fire Chief Carl Cravey reported that the May 28 event raised more than $9,500.

That’s puts a dent in the $35,000 the department needs to purchase battery-powered “Jaws of Life” extrication equipment that would replace the hydraulic system that has been used since the early 1990s. “This new battery-operated tool will greatly increase our productivity in saving lives or property.
