New columns to feature wildfire awareness, camping outdoors

This week, you’ll see two new columns. The first is called “All it Takes is One Spark,” because as we all know, that is truly what it takes for a wildfire to occur in Dripping Springs, or anywhere for that matter.

Expect a total of three articles that will run every other week starting with this issue.
