A big cloud passed over the Bend Friday night leaving 3/10 of an inch. Everyone could have used some more, but was happy with what fell. Late Saturday it looked like it might do something, but all that happened was a big clap of thunder and the clouds moved East of Bend toward Lampasas.

R. J. Henniger won a shredder from the Hoffpauir grand opening celebration which was held Saturday, April 24.

When he went to San Saba indeed, he did find out that he had won a shredder. Nobody but R.J. could be in the dark for so long about winning such a nice piece of equipment.
