The Richland Springs Report

by Sue Ransom 

I’m starting the column a little early because I know this weekend is going to be hectic, and I leave for Canada on Monday. I’m a little concerned about the weather. It seems they are cooler than normal in Ontario as well as here in the Deep South. I will take my swim suit, but there is a good chance it will stay on the beach and not get wet. I know from previous experience that Canada cold water is COLD! I don’t mind though, it will be a nice relaxing time visiting with my family.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

By Cathy Ledbetter

Back in March, my husband had a brilliant idea, at least it turned out to be brilliant. At first, the idea was a tad uncomfortable to me because it involved something new and different. Macy’s idea was that he and I should go on a road trip, just the two of us. He wanted to see the Grand Canyon.

Things are about to get even more Egg-citing in the Valley

By Kevin Slimp´s
 
Iris Long was perplexed. She had just returned home from visiting her sister four hours away, where she realized that egg prices were 19 cents lower than in her hometown of Lennox Valley. A few phone calls to supermarkets and grocery stores in other cities confirmed her suspicion: Egg prices were more than 20 percent higher in her community than anywhere else she had checked.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom
 
June is officially here and we are having an incredible weather year. The grass is green, not parched and brown. The temperature is moderate, not hot and dry. Best of all, the rain keeps coming and continues to refresh our land. We are having a blessed year. I hope everyone enjoys their summer.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury
 
I clearly remember Christmas Day in 1967, when Paul Crumein his popular daily column featured for three decades in the Dallas Morning News–professed his belief in angels. Oh, he acknowledged demons, too, but this day he wrote of angels. It was a heart-warmer, and his column was applauded so widely by Christians, the newspaper has run it each Christmas Day since.

Gratitude

By Dr. Dennis J. Prutow Sterling
 
Gratitude: the state of being grateful, thankfulness. We owe ultimate gratitude to God. We ought to show Him our thankfulness. Ultimately, our food comes from Him. “He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the labor of man, so that he may bring forth food from the earth” (Psalm 104:14).

Letter to the Editor

Last week as I was traveling from Coleman to San Saba (my weekly trip to work at the local Heart of Texas Clinic), I noticed my fuel level was running low. I made a quick stop to the Coyote One Stop in Richland Springs to put about $10.00 of fuel in my car. As usual, I was in a hurry- -not paying attention--and put $10.00 diesel in my car rather than gasoline!
