The Good Folks of Lennox Valley

The home of my childhood rests snugly between two lakes with names descended from ancient Native Americans. It’s been a while since I’ve had a mailing address in “The Valley” and through the years a lot of things have changed. In 1993, a traffic light was installed at the town’s main intersection, Bearden’s Corner.

Dear Editor

Recently the postmaster of our local San Saba post office distributed a circular to the people in town, who have been receiving door to door mail, that they would have to install a rural type mailbox at the curb of their residence. Patrons were given a deadline of October 31, 2015 to accomplish this action or obtain a PO Box, otherwise, they would no longer receive mail at their residence after that time.

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.
