Well March came in like a lamb and if the old saying “Comes in like a lamb will go out like a Lion” holds true we are going to have a wild March. A good indication was shown to us Monday morning around 3:00 a.m.. The wind hit with a tremendous force, but it did bring some rain along with it. There were reports of a ½ inch and more in some places around the Bend. Some of the fruit trees are already blooming and the wild plums have been out now for a week.
Mebbie Eckhoff called in to report on the Stock Show in San Angelo.
Everything seemed to be in a wild state of confusion with all the fires around Sterling City and Robert Lee. Some of the people had to leave to help fight the grass fires. She reported it wasn’t the best of times for the show this year. Ethan Eckhoff got a Reserve Champion on his Columbian Ewe. He received a second ewe lambs, a first and third on the two tooth ewes. She showed the Rambouillet lambs. She placed third on two tooth ewes, and third on a pair of ewe lambs. She also reported that ½ inch of rain fell on their place East of Bend.
