To help familiarize parents with Brownwood Middle School teachers and procedures, BMS will hold their annual Open House/Meet the Teacher night on Tuesday, September 2, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the middle school.
There will be a group meeting with all parents of students from each academic team at 5:15 p.m. in the Science rooms for each team. Locations for the group meetings will be posted around the building. After group meetings, all teachers will be available until 6:30 p.m. for visits with parents. Elective teachers and other teachers that do not have a group meeting will be available in their rooms from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Parents of 7th graders and parents of new 8th graders are encouraged to attend. Parents of returning 8th graders are welcome to attend, but they are probably well aware of fees and expectations since those students had laptops last year as 7th graders.
The Brownwood Lions came to win Friday night as they shut out the Gatesville Hornets and enjoyed playing the first game of the season on new turf at Gordon Wood Stadium. The last time they had a shut out game was in 2009 against the Sweetwater Mustangs.
The young team was ready and impressive in the first half although they got a little complacent in the second half according to Athletic Director and Head Coach Chuck Howard.
“Overall 35-0, as young as we are on both sides of the ball, I couldn’t be more proud,” said Coach Howard. “I’m proud of their effort. The team is taking it personal; they have accountability in how they play.”

It also stated the importance of encouraging relatives and friends of people with mental and/or substance use disorders to implement preventative measures, recognize the signs of a problem and guide those in need to appropriate treatment and recovery support services.

Joe James, Howard Payne University alumnus—and his wife of 60 years, Almola—were honored as Distinguished Alumni at HPU’s 2012 Homecoming.
They received dozens of letters, e-mails, phone calls and visitors who were profuse in well-wishing for the cherished Homecoming honors. And a few days ago, he received a letter from a player he coached at HPU almost a half-century ago.
It was intended to be more timely—this letter from Walter (Butch) Barthiaume, a 1968 HPU graduate who mailed the letter almost two years ago. Trouble is, it was held up by postal regulations until delivery almost two years later.It seems the envelope was opened somewhere along the way without authorization, probably by a ring of ne’er-do-wells seeking “checks in the mail.”
Brownwood Animal Control officers respond to all kinds of calls daily, not all of which are pleasant. However on Tuesday, they were able to help save deer with a medical problem.
Many times when animal control gets called to deal with a deer, it is often because they have been either hit by a car or gotten tangled in a fence, which often results in the animal having to be put down due to unsurvivable injuries. This was not the case on Tuesday, according to Animal Control officer Judy Williams.
