What is wrong with Salado?

COMMENTARY

Are the best days of Salado behind us or before us?

After 46 years, the Salado Art Fair has been canceled, less than two months before the date of the show in late October.

The same week, the Public Arts League of Salado (PALS) canceled its fund raiser, A Taste of Salado, planned to take place at the Sculpture Garden the same time that the Cattlemen’s Ball is held at Tenroc Ranch.

Monthly, the state Comptroller releases news that sales tax revenues are declining for the Village of Salado, while other communities in Bell County and Central Texas see increases in their sales tax revenues.

Within a few weeks of each other, Adelea’s on Main St., a popular restaurant in Salado, and Horsefeathers, a very popular destination store in Salado, are shuttered with little or no warning.

Earlier this year, it appeared as if Mill Creek Golf Club might close its doors.

While there are individual, sometimes personal, explanations for most of these occurrences, their coincidence points to unspoken -- unspeakable -- questions.

What is happening to Salado? Are the best days of Salado behind, or before us? Why is this happening? Has Salado done something wrong? How can we fix it?
