The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom.

There is no doubt that we have changed seasons. I actually had to drag out a sweat jacket to keep warm. I love sleeping in this kind of weather, but please warm it up during the day. I spent most of the peewee football games on Saturday huddled up on the bench. Once the wind slowed down it wasn’t too bad, but that wind was biting into my bones. Our boys played hard against some tough opponents. The third and forth grade were victorious. It would have been a better win, but one of our players copied what I’m sure he’s seen on TV, but is actually taunting.
