The Posey’s have enjoyed 61 years together

Bodie and Audrey Posey

James Beareman Posey was born on January 28, 1931, to Kimsey and Jewell Posey in a little house in Teague. He was the youngest of three sons with brothers Kimsey Jr., and Kenneth. Young James was named after his two grandfathers, James and Beareman, however, a friend of his father called him Jabodie and the Bodie part has stuck with him all of his life.

Bodie Posey attended Teague school and graduated from Teague High School with the Class of 1948. During his high schools years Bodie lettered all four years in football, where he was the quarterback, and also in basketball. He was awarded a scholarship to Navarro College in basketball but ended up being the star quarterback on the football team. The Navarro College football team took the State Championship that year. Bodie said with a grin, “After football season I got so smart at college that I quit.” He hired on with the railroad, where his grandfather James Posey and father Kimsey Posey had worked making Bodie a 3rd generation railroad man. He was cut off after a short time, so he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.

James Posey was sent to Boot Camp in San Diego...

Taxpayers within the City of Teague should see a slight reduction in city property taxes this year thanks to slightly over $3 million in increased property valuation, within the city this year.

Figures show the net taxable valuation in the City of Teague has increased to $112,414,148, up from last year’s net taxable valuation of $108,171,376. City Council members are expected to approve an effective tax rate of $0.724506 per $100 valuation. The proposed rate is slight under a two-cent reduction from last year’s tax rate of $0.741675.
