George Holst Award nominations sought

   Matagorda County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) will celebrate the legacy of the late George Holst of Palacios at its annual meeting in December when the 20th recipient of the George Holst Award is announced.
   Each year the MCEDC board of directors seeks nominations from the community for outstanding economic leaders to be considered as recipients of this award for excellence in community vision and economic leadership.
   According to MCEDC board guidelines, candidates should be of good moral character, have the ability to give solid reasons for an action and be able to move people emotionally and intellectually. 
   Because of Holst’s enthusiastic activism in county economic development throughout the late 70s, 80s and 90s, he became the namesake for the only award given by the Matagorda County EDC.

Texas AgriLife, TDA sponsor agricultural waste pesticide collection in Wharton

   Unused pesticides lurking in barns and outbuildings are hazardous to people, pets and the environment. 
   Currently, there is no organized collection activity to allow Texans to responsibly dispose of their unwanted agricultural pesticide waste. 
   This has caused many Texans to accumulate unwanted pesticides under unsafe storage conditions and has possibly caused some to consider illegal disposal options. 
   The improper disposal of agricultural pesticide waste poses a serious risk to surface and groundwater, wildlife habitat, and other areas of the environment. 
   However, agricultural pesticide waste collection events provide a safe and legal method for disposing of agricultural pesticides and containers.
