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.

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.

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.
