Indoor booths add to appeal of this month’s 4th Flea

4th Flea, the only downtown, monthly community flea market in San Marcos is seeking vendors to participate in its Jan. 28 event. The market takes place every fourth Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Price Center and offers both indoor and outdoor booth spaces. The Flea’s indoor vendor spaces are in the Center’s parlor and two historic former church sanctuaries and provide comfort for vendors and shoppers alike during the colder winter months.

Ollie Maier- Daily Record Columnist

Recently subscribed to another recycling and energy related eNewlsetter called Waste Today to compliment information received from Recycling Today and Resource Recycling newsletters. Today I will use three of their articles to try to provide and interesting and informative column.

The Journey Continues

"Brother" Jim Lanning- Daily Record Columnist

My journey continues with recall to my days as a dorm director and middle school Bible teacher at the San Marcos Baptist Academy. Our challenge was about young people and how to mold their spiritual lives. A weekly chapel service under the charge of Chaplain Dr. Dennis Koger provided a forum for different speakers to address this task.
