Runnels county is booming with oil!!  You see the traffic from oilfields everywhere.  But you also see loads of oilfield trucks parked and sitting idle.  So it’s a mixed bag here.  But make no mistake – oil is king here, along with a fair amount of cotton fields.

The courthouse is non-descript inside and out.  When making that claim to someone in the courthouse, she pointed out the one point of interest, the “strike matches Here” signs.  There are about 4 of them in the building.  We’ve never seen them in any other courthouse.
