Letters to the Editor

 This past week we've had a grave injustice done to our county. Our Sheriff was allowed to resign. And why? Because our county officials wouldn't go that extra mile or meet halfway.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

 

I guess we can say that the weathermen finally came up with the right forecast. The Coyotes were able to get in their first game in several weeks and then came the rain. After weeks of near misses and failed rains, this was a great rain. The onset was pretty rough and Russ was afraid we wouldn’t have a road left when it was all done, but then it settled down to a good steady rain that soaked in and didn’t destroy.

The Bend News

By Jo Price
 
The kids were out of school Monday because of Columbus Day and some people didn’t have to go to work as well. There are some of us who have to work and feel sorry for ourselves because of it. They sure won’t have to worry about getting wet, because there is no rain and none predicted any ways soon. The tanks are beginning to be in need of water. The price of cows have gone down, but the meat in the market hasn’t come down much if any. Sometime back Charlene Reavis called and was telling about seeing a black panther getting a drink at their tank.

Notes from Spring Creek Arts Guild

By Cathy Ledbetter

I have never met a woman who does not like to rearrange the furniture every now and then. Conversely, I have never met a man who supports rearranging the furniture every now and then. This is a fundamental difference between the genders as far as I can tell, one of many.

The Bend News

By Jo Price

There was a sprinkle of rain sometime in the night Sunday or early Monday. Not enough to measure and the only reason that it showed up was because of the sprinkles on the gray dust on the car from the construction site on 580.

Seeds of Hope

By Michael A. Guido Metter, Georgia

 

The word "want" in this Psalm covers anything and everything that we might ever desire. It is all inclusive - covering the mental, physical and emotional as well as the spiritual areas of our lives. And if a "want" is important to us, we need to realize that it was important to God before we ever recognized it.
