Mirabeau B. Lamar Day, A Salute to Texas' Father of Education

Submitted by San Saba Lodge No. 612 

January 26 is Mirabeau B. Lamar Day, a day to salute the Father of Education in Texas. On that date in 1839, the Republic of Texas Congress passed The Education Act, setting aside land for public schools. It was President Mirabeau B. Lamar, second President of the Republic of Texas from 1838-1841, who successfully argued the importance of public education, and proposed the first actions that laid the foundation for a public school system in Texas.

Damming the Colorado River: An Update

By Bob Davis

In the spring of 2015 this paper ran a series of five articles about the proposed dam on the Colorado River. Below is an update focusing on the thus-far successful efforts to delay and perhaps avoid construction of a 20- ft. tall dam downstream of the Highway 16 bridge between Goldthwaite and San Saba. The dam would create a 9-mile long lake and reduce downstream flows on the Colorado. The application for the TCEQ permit was submitted by the O.P. Leonard family of Ft. Worth.
