Dear Citizens,

As football seasons opens today for the Alpine High School Fighting Bucks, it’s fun to think about the Bake Turner days of yesteryear. Texas Music Magazine had a wonderful article about him in this summer’s issue prior to Viva Big Bend. I’ve attached a copy of the article for those who have not seen it.

Bake is one of the good guys. For those of us who get to interact with him, he’s such a great community steward and Alpine advocate.

Go Bucks! We hope the season and prosperous and injury-free.
