Cost, not site, primary factor for city meeting

Seminar cost limit set at $3,300

Cost, not location, will be the primary factor in deciding specifics of a planned management seminar scheduled for next month, Bay City councilmembers decided Tuesday. Council voted to continue Mayor Tommy LeTulle’s efforts in arranging the three-day workshop, which had been tentatively set for Corpus Christi in mid-October. The action authorized a price tag of up to $3,300 for the meeting.

“Mayor, do we have any figures on anything closer to home?” asked councilwoman Billye Harmer. “Financially, I just don’t see how we can afford it.”

“When you look at the smaller-priced rooms, then look at $39 a room (in Corpus Christi) with everything attached, the Corpus Christi option appears most economical,” she said.


Black Cats bop El Campo; Lead District race

The Bay City Black Cats put it all together in the final period here Friday night to turn back a stubborn Ricebird team, 14-0. This ruined the debut into Class AAAA for the Birds and gave the Cats some revenge for a 21-0 licking at the hands of El Campo last year. This win puts Bay City in first place in District 24-AAAA.

For three quarters it looked like it was going to be a long season for the Cats and their fans, but they jelled in the final stanza despite fumbilitis.
