TRWD board seats on ballot

Five candidates will compete for three seats on the Tarrant Regional Water District Board of Directors in the May 6, 2017, election in Tarrant County.

Two of the candidates are incumbents, including Jack Stevens, who joined the board in 2004 and now serves as vice president, and Mary Kelleher, who was elected in 2013.

They are being challenged by three prominent business people: Andra Beatty, a real estate broker; James Hill, a banker and Leah King, a communications manager. All have long histories of civic involvement in Fort Worth, the site of TRWD’s headquarters.

The winners will join incumbents Victor Henderson, president of the board who was elected in 1985; Marty Leonard, secretary of the board who joined it in 2006 and Jim Lane, secretary pro tem, who was elected in 2006.

TRWD, in operation for more than nine decades, manages the seven water reservoirs of Cedar Creek, Richland Chambers, Worth, Eagle Mountain, Bridgeport, Benbrook and Arlington.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 10)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 84 degrees; 6.20 feet low. Crappie are good around the Highway 380 Bridge using minnows and jigs. Hybrids and sand bass are still cruising all over the main lake biting on live bait and slabs. Keep a sharp eye out for surfacing sand bass on the main lake. Largemouth bass are good at sunrise with topwater baits. Later in the day, run a crankbait around ledges and drops in 18-22 feet of water. Catfish are good on punch bait and cut shad all over the lake. All ramps are open, but starting to get a bit steep. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
