The Catkins Ball and Change in San Saba

by Dick Miller
 
“But my, this town has changed a sight – it ain’t the same a-tall; They’ve put in City Water Works and built a City Hall,” wrote Texas Poet Laureate and San Saba native, Carlos Ashley, in his poem, “Ole Edgar Martin.” It seems the transformation of San Saba from an open range settlement to an organized city was pretty hard on Ole Edgar.
