The Bend News

By Jo Price

Last week I was not up to putting anything in the paper, but have a little bit to send in this week. I came home from the rehab in Lampasas Monday afternoon. Bill Herman of San Angelo passed away recently and will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.

Valley Clergy Unite
Every fifth Friday of the month, which generally comes around about four times most years, the clergy of the Valley would gather together for lunch. Over time, the gathering came to be known as the Ministerial Alliance of Lennox Valley. To outsiders, meaning just about anyone who doesn’t work for one of the Valley churches, the words “Ministerial Alliance” bring thoughts of important discussions concerning major theological and ethical issues.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom
 
Okay students, this present weather condition is called “the dog days of August.” Look it up and see where it originated. Why isn’t it the snake days of August? They like heat so do lizards. Find out and let me know your answer. In the meantime, we will continue to sweat it out with only two weeks before students have to be back on task.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Recently, many members of North San Saba Water Suppy (NSSWSC) were asked to sign a petition regarding the water rates. The water rates were increased in August of 2015 and I filed a rate appeal with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) in October of 2015. The rate appeal was prepared in accordance with a procedure set up by the PUCT.

The Richland Springs Report

by Sue Ransom 

One short month from now all the teachers will be back at work. Wow, has this summer ever flown by like the wind. I have checked with many of my students and it seems none of them are ready to go back yet. So perhaps we can take a vote and all put off school for an additional two weeks? I know, it is just a dream. I’m anxious for the next few months to pass so that we can get into our new school. I can’t imagine being able to conduct a science class in an actual science classroom. It will be heaven. I checked out the library the other day, and it is looking awesome. Obviously, it is not finished, but it is close enough that you can imagine the finished result.

Who’s That Monkey in the Mirror?

By Cathy Ledbetter 

Last week my daughter was telling me a story and said something about people who are not very “self-aware.” I kept thinking about that phrase the rest of the day, then the next morning while I was on my walkabout, “self-aware” was still rattling around in my head. So, once I got back to my porch with a glass of water in one hand and my phone in the other, I started researching self-awareness.

Coyote Pride

By Don Fowler, RSISD Superintendent

Reading is a learned process. Reading is something we will all do for the rest of our lives. There are no shortcuts to becoming a better reader. Students are more successful when a partnership is formed between students, parents and school staff. Working together improves student success. Your child’s education is important! Learning to read begins at home. Read aloud to your child every day. A child's likelihood for success in kindergarten and the first grade depends on how much he/she has learned about reading before entering school. A child's early experiences with books and language lay the foundation for success in learning to read.
