Recieved in an email today for the Grayson County proposals and all the rest. Hope to see several of you there.

Also, as a reminder, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, including Executive Director Carter Smith and several biologists and other high-ranking Department employees, will hold a public scoping meeting on January 8, 2009 at 7:00 p.m.
