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.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

Mass and social media topics are awash with man’s inhumanity to man. We now screech to stops without first giving pause. No longer do we “tsk/tsk/tsk” at bizarre, unprecedented violence. Instead, we are stunned, flipping and flopping, fearing what comes next.

From Rylander Memorial Library...

by Nancy Bannister

Reading Recommendations: The Children's Crusade, a novel, Ann Packer Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor: A recent letter from North San Saba Water Supply Corporation (NSSWSC) notified its customers of an upcoming rate increase. It is possible that this rate increase is not reasonable. Therefore, I intend to file an appeal of the rate increase with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) by filing a petition on the required petition form. This petition must be signed by at least ten percent of the affected ratepayers.

you should--but the cans are stacking up.

Dear Editor, The board of the San Saba County Historical Museum Foundation was surprised and saddened to read of the unpleasant experience of a patron at our museum. Mrs. Gladys Felts Dickison, a San Saba native and long-time resident of Lampasas, had generously offered the museum the uniform she wore as torch bearer prior to the 2002Winter Olympics and was stunned when it was rejected.
