From Rylander Memorial Library

Reading recommendations: Pistol Packin' Preachers: Circuit Riders of Texas, Barbara Barton, Foreword by Elmer Kelton. The Lone Star State has been described as the place where "the Godly could battle 'the devil' on his own ground." Circuit riders and other early preachers confronted dangerous outlaws, warring Indians, wild animals, and unpredictable Texas weather.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom
 
What a blessing Sunday’s rains were to our area. I woke to the lovely sound of pounding rain on my metal roof. Some of my church friends talked about thunder, I must confess I heard none. It’s amazing to me; that hours after one of these lovely rains, the grass looks greener. My roses will reward me with another crop of blooms. We had about 1.7 inches, others had around 2 inches. We will have a full schedule Friday. All of our teams will play Sterling City.

The Bend News

By Jo Price
 
Some folks received a nice shower or two Saturday, but some of the Bend folks missed out completely. The weather has been warm, but still not too bad out except for the humidity. They are promising more rain for the later part of this week. Maybe folks around the Bend will benefit from it. William and Jane Clark babysit their two grandchildren Jordan and Jaylee Messer while their parents along with some other teachers attended a function in San Antonio this past weekend.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom
 
We’re in a bit of a fluctuating weather pattern right now. I personally am enjoying the break from steamy heat. Saturday and Sunday morning we awakened to 60 degree weather. It didn’t stay cool, but I can stand to start my days in that manner. The rain was hit or miss for the most part. Floyd had about .8 in his gauge, but most others only had .2-.4 inches. Any rain is a blessing and worthy of a quick thank you Lord.
