Local fire departments responded to a grass fire on County Road 419 in Fisher County on Thursday morning. According to Sweetwater Fire Chief Grant Madden, the fire burned about four acres of grass and seemed to be started by a power line problem. The fire is still under investigation. Three Sweetwater Fire Department trucks and three Fisher County trucks were dispatched to the fire. "We overloaded the scene with resources because of the high winds and dry conditions. Under normal conditions, we wold not have called so many trucks, but there was nothing normal about today's conditions.

On Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010, the Sierra Club held a noon-time press conference in Abilene on the steps of City Hall.
A report was released by the Sierra Club entitled, "What Would You Drink if the Well Ran Dry? â€” Nolan County Water and the Proposed Tenaska Coal-Fired Power Plant".

More low-income children in the Sweetwater Independent School District (SISD) will have food on weekends during this school year, thanks to a generous donation from Tenaska, developer of the Trailblazer Energy Center, a $3.5 billion carbon capturing power plant proposed near Sweetwater.
Tenaska is donating $2,000 to expand the Sweetwater Backpack Buddies program, a non-profit volunteer agency that provides food to children identified as chronically hungry by the SISD staff and administration, announced Leah Andrews, the programâ€™s Sweetwater coordinator.
