Tarleton students, many first-time voters, plan to vote for ‘lesser evil’

With the presidential election less than a week away, more than twice as many Tarleton State University students said they planned to vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton. But a notable amount of students said they are so frustrated with the choices that they do not plan to vote at all.

Find your pumpkin and fall fun at Lone Star Family Farm

If you’re looking for family fun or a way to experience fall festivities this weekend, wind your way through the corn maze or pick your own pumpkin off the vine at Lone Star Family Farm. The farm is open on weekends through Nov. 19 and is located off U.S. Highway 67 west of Stephenville. Josh and Ashley Ritchey grew their first pick-your-own pumpkin patch in 2011 in Lubbock, then moved to Stephenville and bought the farm in 2013.


Emilee DeForest

My name is Emilee DeForest and I am from Hallettsville, Texas. I grew up on about 50 acres outside of town, where I have been gaining knowledge and experiences in agricultural industries, such as cattle, horticulture, and some agronomy basically since I was born. I have written a news story and have contributed to a news story, both in which were published in the Texan News Service publication. I have also had some photos published in the Texan News Service publication, as well as had pictures published in a local bank's calendar.
