By Melanie Potter M.S., 
Family and Consumer Sciences Agent, 
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service San Saba County 
 
Have you ever heard of the Honor Flights? No, well, briefly stated they are an organization that provides the veterans of past military conflicts the opportunity to travel to Washington DC to visit the memorials there. But there is much more to it than that. Thankfully, one of the registered nurses with the organization lives right here in our own community. Linda Thompson, and guests, will be joining us at the upcoming Lunch and Learn hosted by the Texas Extension Education Association clubs of San Saba to talk more about this program.

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. Ashley writes that when San Saba modernized, there wasn’t much left that Edgar could do. “So he jus rides around all day – a sorter ‘livin sigh’ – A lost and homeless kinda look a-starin from his eye.”
