Making sweet memories with pound cake

March 27, 2013

This moist pound cake is flecked with sweet coconut and lemon zest, with a sweet-tart glaze. Great memories also go along with the pound cake. My mother would make the “Lemon Coconut Pound Cake” every Easter and again the pound cake would appear around the 4th of July. I make a fresh raspberry sauce to accompany the cake. It is a great cake to freeze, but do not add the glaze until the cake has thawed. This recipe can be changed to Lime Coconut Pound Cake by substituting the lemon juice and lime zest. Now get busy making your own memories…Happy Spring!

Annual BCWSC meeting slated for April 19

March 27, 2013

On Feb. 28, 2013 the TWDB approved funding of $7.5 million for the Bitter Creek Water Supply Company to make improvements to its water system. For several years the Bitter Creek WSC has been looking for a more affordable supplemental supply of water. In December 2011, the WSC secured an option to lease 1,274 acres of groundwater rights in the Edwards Trinity Aquifer. After test wells revealed a good quantity of high quality water, the WSC filed an application to the Texas Water Development Board for funding required to secure this supplemental water supply.
