San Saba Bird and Nature Club

These are exciting times at Colorado Bend State Park! After two years of planning and hard work the Tinaja Trail is open. The unique feature of the Tinaja itself is impressive – as are the vistas, native plants, and bird life along the trail. The overlook deck on the Tie Slide Trail has also been completed. It’s a great hike and the deck affords stunning views looking down the Colorado River canyon!

Preying on our People

By Mae Newman
 
Honest people are daily victims of the dishonest. There are many con artists committing fraud and perpetrating scams on our most vulnerable people, especially the elderly. Many are living on fixed incomes, others are trying to manage their finances so they don't outlast their resources. Our elderly have the most to lose. And yet, they are the most targeted, as they are unfamiliar with current technology, they are sympathetic to the needs of others, and are easily intimidated when threatened.

Everybody is a Genius

By Mae Newman
According to Albert Einstein, everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. Every soul has its purpose. Every soul has an inner passion. Every soul has the ability to succeed, if they find their purpose and passion.
