[theme music] ♪ ♪ <i> - NARRATOR:</i> Texas Parks & Wildlife, a television series for all outdoors. [reflective music] ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ [dramatic music] - I'm Steven Bridges. I'm fifth generation Texas newspaper owner. The men in my family have been running newspapers for the last 150 years. There we are. I own the Goldthwaite Eagle Newspaper here in Goldthwaite, Texas, in Mills County... right on the edge of the Hill Country. It's the county seat. A town of about 1,800 people. It's just a little bit like Mayberry. The newspaper, it's still the only place you can read about small town stuff. The kids and the old people and the deer hunting and the Friday night football. I tell people that we're telling the history of Mills County one week at a time. Agriculture is probably our largest industry, followed by deer hunting. Starting mid-week, we start seeing the trailers coming in. When opening day hits, it's camouflage everywhere. We're happy to see the green of the camo because it brings the green dollars. [bell rings] - Twenty-five even. My name is Rodney Spies. Thanks very much, bud. - Thank you, I appreciate it. - RODNEY: Our store is called Mills County General Store. Not only are we an Ace Hardware store. Is it a 177 caliber? But we also sell a lot of hunting supplies. I bet it is. Anything a hunter needs. You want to sign up for the Big Buck Contest? - Yes. - RODNEY: That's what I thought. They come in early to sign up for a Big Buck Contest, because everybody wants to shoot the big one. - STEVEN: It's just an amazing amount of economic stimulus that happens. - CLERK: Got your receipt and your hunting license. Thank you very much. - CUSTOMER: Appreciate it. - RODNEY: I just got a shipment of ammo on a backorder than should have been here yesterday, so I've got to get this out. We buy approximately 70% more than we normally do when we're gearing up for opening deer season weekend. It's quite a chunk of change. Little stuff. Little stuff makes the difference. [reflective music] - This is my granddad, Darrell Head, and this is my son Rhyder Dean. - Yesterday was my birthday; 91 years old. - LINDSEY: We're going to sight in my rifle and make sure we're hitting the right spot on the target. [gun shot] You see it? - RHYDER: This it right here? - LINDSEY: Mm-hm. A little high and to the right. - DARRELL: That's a Remington Mohawk 222. They're a fine little gun. That thing's pretty old. They quit making them a good many years ago. - RHYDER: I see the bullseye. - LINDSEY: Do you? It's been Old Faithful for me. I've been shooting it since I started hunting. - DARRELL: It's about right, right there. [gun shots] - LINDSEY: Last two. Right there. You see it? - RHYDER: Yeah. - I think that's close, close enough to go deer hunting with. [Lindsey laughs] - We're getting ready to make a little breakfast sausage for a man. A lot of times I stay here till sometime nine or ten o'clock at night, seven days a week, four months straight, until season's over. Well, last year I cut the end plumb off that one and it growed back. I don't see how it did, but it did. You're gonna be on TV right here. - I'm gonna... - He got summer sausage last year and he liked our jerky. - Damn right I do. [laughs] But this year, you're going to make a little bigger jerky. - Okay. Bigger chunks. - Yeah. - You got it. When deer season hits, it's good for all the local businesses. I mean, everybody. [soothing music] ♪ ♪ - WARREN BLESH: This part of Texas was really known for its hair goats, Angora goats. And, it was probably the hair goat capitol of the world at one time. This was a central buying point where ranchers from all over could bring their wool and sell it. And that changed from the hair goat to the demand for meat goats. [goats bleating] What's been happening, probably started around 2000, with kind of a land boom, as you call it in the Hill Country when prices soared from 600 an acre to over 3,000 today, is, the people that you're seeing buying this land are very much conservation-minded and they're taking over-grazed land and turning it into restored pastures, new lakes, new ponds. I think that's a theme you're seeing with the land shift is they're making it even better than it was when they found it, and more like it was, probably, originally back in the 1900s. - MIKE MILLER: I'll bet you've seen things change around Mills County. I bet hunting has gotten bigger and bigger over the years. - Yes, it definitely has. It's busy. Gosh, it's busy. Every year it seems like more and more hunters come in. - MIKE: This area didn't have deer, historically. And, as a matter of fact, the first deer sightings were some time in the 60s in this area. There's a bunch of good live oak up here on this hill. - LINDSEY: Mm-hm. - MIKE: That's actually a pretty important plant for deer. So there's a big wildlife management association in this part of Mills County. It's a cooperative effort between land owners. They're actually managing this wildlife resource together. They look at it as a group effort rather than trying to go about management on their own. Simms Creek specifically, has close to 80 properties represented now and nearly 55,000 acres. So that's pretty powerful. Now, when you have that kind of acreage, you can start making a difference by making the right decisions, both in terms of numbers of deer harvested and the types of deer that you harvest. [traffic road noise] - I will shoot several thousand photos tomorrow, and interview a hundred people at least, with, with their information of what's going on. And everybody's gonna want to know in the paper. So I'm just covering the news. But, the hunting is the news. [morning crickets chirping] - Make a little jalapeno and cheese link sausage. Got to get a little fire going. This is going to give it the smoked flavor. - CAMERAMAN: Sawdust? - WESLEY: Yes sir. - CAMERAMAN: What kind of sawdust are you using? Is this a special secret? - It's a special secret. Little bit of coffee and a whole lot of creamer. Just about, I guess every place in Mills County's got a hunter on it. Lots of deer in Mills County, Goldthwaite. [clock ticking] - CAMERAMAN: No deer come in yet today? No hunters? - None yet. - CAMERAMAN: It's early though, right? - Yeah. A little early. Maybe they'll be here in a little bit. [uplifting music] ♪ ♪ [crickets chirping] Fog's pretty heavy this morning, you know. It's hard to see. You can always keep your ears open, kinda listen to what's going on around you. Why do I hunt? My whole family has hunted ever since I can remember. It's always fun to challenge yourself to find the big buck. 'Cause you have to be quiet, you have to know where you want to go or where the deer are coming into. I just love being outside and be able to enjoy the outdoors and get away and, you know, look at all of God's creation, see, you know, all of the neat things that He's created. All the little critters running around and enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors. [metal clanking] Well, we saw a bunch of deer this morning, but we didn't get anything. Everything was out of shooting range, but hopefully this evening we can regather and try a different location. [uplifting music] - STEVEN: So you hit him perfect, right there. Great shot. How far was he? - KALEE COMEAUX: About 65 yards. - STEVEN: Alright Kalee, let's take a few photos, can we? One, two, three. Got it. Yeah, hold him out here for me. Alright, push him out. When I say ready, push him out toward me. One, two, three, push him out. Nice. Well, how far was this buck? How far do you have it set? - 107 yards. - STEVEN: 107 yards. - Well, the feeder was at 100 and he was seven yards past it. - STEVEN: I knew you'd know the actual yardage. I know you too well. Alright, go field dress him. Y'all take care. - GARY: You, too. - STEVEN: We've got our share of characters in this town, that's for sure. My stomach runs me just like it runs these deer half the time. And as you can see, like the little restaurant, it's gonna be completely swamped today. It's already swamped and it's, you know, 10:40. [phone rings] - NANCY RODRIGUEZ: I love deer season. We look forward to this every year. Give us about 15 minutes. If we didn't have deer season, it wouldn't be busy. [food sizzling] The cook, he was sweating, drenched in sweat back there because it's so hot. Our hunters, one of them said he had killed a, uh, 12-point or something. - Oh, and then I saw a dozen turkey come in and they were, they were a little upset because the deer had already eaten all the corn. - I mean, I was expecting it to be busy, but just not, like, overwhelming busy. [laughs] We didn't even get to have a break, you know, but now that deer season just started, it's gonna be like that from now on. Have a great day. - All right, you too. - Yay! Money. [uplifting music] - On to the next place. [uplifting music] We sort of, our bread is buttered, when deer season starts is when our bread starts getting buttered in Mills County and it can really make or break a year. So, we're gonna head to Ranch Land Feed. That's another place where people congregate to see who shot what. It's scary. If deer hunting went away, a quarter of our sales tax rebates would disintegrate. And that's an incredible hit to our county. - CLERK: What can I help y'all with today? - KRISTI MCCOY: We're very busy, all the hunters are coming in. They're all coming in to get corn, supplies for their deer camp. - MAN: Those are a 110. - KRISTI: We try to influence the hunters to take something back with them, you know, because the wives are like, "You spent all that money on deer, you know, you can bring me something." - Go ahead and bring another one, he's going to want some corn. - STEVEN: The retailers always make their year, across the nation, from Thanksgiving on to Christmas. For us, it starts when the dove hunters hit town. And then opening day of deer season when the deer hunters hit town and that deer season keeps on giving all the way through Christmas. - WESLEY: Aw, you can't like beef jerky better than deer jerky. [winch rumbling] - WESLEY: Yeah, it's been good. I think we've got 30-something today. - And we are slammed, and we are still checking them in. See, we knew it was going to happen. - WESLEY: This afternoon there may be 20, 30 more. - LINDSEY: It feels awesome to be able to go out and shoot a deer and provide your family with meat. And plus, you know where the meat comes from and it's all natural, there's no antibiotics. - CAMERAMAN: What's your favorite sausage? - Jalapeno and cheese link and the summer. I can make it all day and go home and eat it at night. The cleanness that you put in the meat itself, that you know what's in it, and the seasoning that we use, and I just think it's all, makes it good. - I don't think he was even chasing. - Think that will stay on there? - It will in a minute. - Man, you must drive like a cop. [laughs] Oh, you're going to, you're going to latch it. I was fixing to say. - Cause I drive like a cop. [uplifting music] - STEVEN: We have an opening day chili luncheon for all the deer hunters to come in and eat chili. Alright. Let's do 20 bucks worth on it. - MAN: He always wins, by the way. Every gun raffle. - STEVEN: Shush, you're gonna jinx me. They'll be gun raffles and gun drawings and all kinds of specials going on at all the retailers. [country music] We've got interesting, sometimes goofy people, I'm one of them. We just enjoy everybody's differences, as well as their similarities. They are a hoot. - MAN: Here we go. Stephen Bridges, owner of our local newspaper. - That's my third gun. - Is that right? - STEVEN: Every year my wife says, "Don't buy any more tickets." I'm just a lucky guy, what can I say? - This is the biggest buck brought in this morning. [cheer and applause] The deer was about 80 yards. My dad said I probably missed him. And I was like, "No!" And he said, "Yes, you got him." So, I was like, "Yay." - STEVEN: I grew up deer hunting in Mills County and my children, they want to go hunting. They're outdoor kids. My wife has been a hunter for her whole life. We hunted together in high school. There's a lot of places like Mills County in the Hill Country, there's Llano and there's Mason, there's Ozona. Deer hunting is big in lots of these places, and it's just part of our culture number one, and number two, it's part of our economy. [country music] It feels good especially for me because I'm a girl and most people think that girls need a man to do all their dirty work but women are completely capable of doing stuff on their own. Especially going hunting. [gun shot] Opening day of deer season. Got me a good doe today. There's gonna be plenty of more opportunities to get a big buck, but I'm proud of this first doe of the season. This is what I was talking about. My favorite part of the day. In the evening, whenever the sun sets and you see all the different color clouds and the sky and the reds and blues. Magical looking. It's real peaceful out here during this time.

We're not growing by leaps and bounds, but we're sustainably growing. We get our fair share and a lot of that has come from deer hunters who have moved here. They say, "I'm a deer hunter, I bought this land. "I love it here. I need to make a living, here's what I can do." And those are the kinds of businesses that have started up here and they're thriving. [van beeping] This is one of our many deliveries we make on Wednesday morning. This is volume 124 for 124 years in a row every Wednesday we've had the newspaper come out. The newspaper, we cover kids and old people, that's what we love to do, that's who we love. That's our people here. Now we may not have all the amenities of the city, but there's definitely something to be said about raising your kids in this little community.

History

Goldthwaite was originally a part of the southern portion of Brown County. Like many other Texas communities, Goldthwaite was named for a railroad official, Joe C. Goldthwaite of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway, who conducted the auction of town lots. The post office opened in 1886. After Mills County was organized, several landowners donated property with the assurance that Goldthwaite would become the county seat. The first county jail was built in 1888, and the courthouse was completed in 1890.

The Santa Fe Railroad constructed shops and a roundhouse switch. Goldthwaite was scheduled to have become a division point until labor problems compelled the railroad to relocate the shops to Brownwood, the seat of Brown County, to the north. Even without the railroad, Goldthwaite progressed. By 1898, it had a population of 1,200, three churches, a bank, a number of hotels and boardinghouses, two cotton gins, two gristmills, both public and private schools businesses, and two competing weekly newspapers, the Goldthwaite Eagle and the Goldthwaite Mountaineer. A meeting in 1905 of the Confederate Reunion, a major annual social event, remains the largest public gathering in the history of Mills County. A large Confederate monument is on the front lawn of the courthouse in Goldthwaite.[3][5]

A fire in 1912 destroyed the wooden courthouse, and it was replaced in 1913 by a brick structure designed in classical revival style by the architect Henry T. Phelps. The courthouse is shaded by several large trees.[6] The first school library was established in 1915, the same year that work began on Lake Merritt, some seven miles from Goldthwaite. By 1928, Goldthwaite had 2,800 residents and 95 businesses. The population fell to 1,324 by 1931 because of drought and the Great Depression. The number of businesses dipped to 55 by 1933. After the depression years, Goldthwaite recovered only modestly, though agricultural diversification brought renewed prosperity.[7]

Goldthwaite is a trade center for farm equipment and such agricultural products as mohair, wool, fruits, cattle, turkeys, and pecans. Herds of mohair-producing Angora goats are raised in the general area about Goldthwaite. In the fall and winter, the area is popular with hunters seeking white-tailed deer. The city lies on United States Highway 183, a segment of the Ports-to-Plains Highway which connects the Texas heartland with the Texas Gulf Coast. Goldthwaite City Park, at the intersection of U.S. Highway 183 and Texas Highway 16, offers swimming, picnicking, and playground equipment.[8] The nine-hole municipal golf course is open year-round. Goldthwaite has two museums: Mills County Museum, which contains replicas of pioneer rooms and hosts a chili supper in mid-November, and the Old Jail Museum at Courthouse Square, which is included in the National Register of Historic Places.[8]

Goldthwaite is known for its Christmas celebration from November through December. Lighting displays are erected and holiday fare fills the specialty shops.[9] Goldthwaite holds an annual "Parade of Lights" on the first Saturday in December.

The City of Goldthwaite owns and operates the Goldthwaite Municipal Airport, a general aviation airport with a 3,200 x 60 ft. (975 x 18 m) asphalt runway.[10] The airport originally opened in 2011. In 2015, 10 T-hangars, a hangar apron, an access road, and a garage storage area for a courtesy car were constructed, and a fly-in golf program was offered in partnership with the adjacent golf course.[11]

Around 20 miles west of Goldthwaite is the Regency Suspension Bridge atop the Colorado River of Texas, which divides Mills County from San Saba County. Regency is one of the few swinging bridges still in use in Texas. It is featured on Bob Phillips's weekly syndicated television series Texas Country Reporter. The bridge is reached by a gravel road some eight miles from Texas Farm-to-Market Road 574.[8]

Municipal government

In 1907, Goldthwaite was chartered as a Type A General Law city with a mayor and five aldermen. It also employs a city manager. The annual municipal budget is $2 million. The city owns and operates its electric distribution system and purchases power from the Lower Colorado River Authority. It also owns and operates a state-approved water system and a wastewater system approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Goldthwaite is served by Frontier Communications, Atmos Energy, Central Texas TeleCommunications (Fiber Internet), and Community Santitation. All but 5% of the city streets are paved. The city collects a 2% sales tax (plus the 6.25% state sales tax) but no city property tax. Goldthwaite claims lower utility rates than most other Texas communities.[12]

Political behavior

Mills County and Goldthwaite were somewhat more Democratic in political orientation than the state of Texas as a whole, at least until 1996. Mills County voters supported Democratic presidential nominees Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, Hubert H. Humphrey in 1968, Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 1980, and Bill Clinton in 1992. Voters supported Republican candidates Richard Nixon in 1972, Ronald Reagan in 1984, George H.W. Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, and George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. Dole received 1,057 votes to Bill Clinton's 752 and 200 for Independent Ross Perot, the Dallas billionaire industrialist. The second Bush polled large majorities over Democrats Al Gore, and John Kerry.[13]

In the 2008 presidential primaries, Mills County cast 772 ballots in the Democratic contest and 487 in the GOP race. In the United States Senate primary, the county cast 555 Democratic ballots and 408 Republican votes.[14]
