When is being a “Red State” a bad thing?

That would be when your state is coded red on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) flu activity map.

Texas is one of the 10 states that experienced high influenza-like illness (ILI) during week 50 of the current flu season.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center and Specialty Clinic in Marble Falls may still have that brand-spanking-new feel when you walk in the door, but BS&W has been open for business at its US 281 location for five years and has a story to tell.

“When the clinic opened, it was the Scott & White Specialty Clinic; Scott & White Healthcare had not joined with the Baylor Health Care System yet,” said Bramer Owens at a BS&W Media Day Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Homeowners, ranchers, government officials, hospital leaders and concerned citizens met together Friday at Baylor Scott & White Speciality Clinic with one common goal in mind — opposing the construction of a new rock crushing plant south of Marble Falls.

Asphalt Inc. applied for an air permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to operate a new rock and concrete crushing plant with an entrance 90 feet west of US 281 and approximately 2.6 miles south of the intersection of Texas 71 near Flat Rock Road, which is Burnet County Road 403.
