Isn't it time for a change? In light of San Saba High School's past football record over the past four years, when is enough, enough?
Coach Johnson's record presently amassed is a terrible record with four wins and 36 losses over his last four years as the Athletic Director/Head Coach of San Saba High School's football team. The last time I checked, this was the great state of Texas that takes its football games very seriously.
Usually, on any given Thursday or Friday, you can see families from all different areas and walks of life traveling where their hometown football games are being played. When we spend this time on the road traveling to support our teams, we expect to be rewarded by seeing our teams victorious.
Normally, head coaches are usually given one year to turn a team around. The following year, they are expected to start producing with more wins than losses. Since we've had a three-year contract with our Athletic Director's losing record, whose bright idea was it to extend an additional year contract to him when no other city in Texas would hire a coach with a record like this - 4 wins-36 losses!
I personally can remember going to football games and really enjoy seeing the games played. When you go now, you can hear the fans yelling their dismay for Coach Johnson's decisions on the football field.
I will ask you all again my first question. Isn't it time for a change so that San Saba can return to its winning ways? I am tired of seeing our boys getting beat down and injured each week with no wins to show for it. The talent is there, so let's utilize it to get back on a winning track.

September is recognized as National Employ Older Workers Month
Seniors Need Employment and are willing to Work
– National Employ Older Workers week begins in September and it finds America’s senior citizens are staying in the workforce and doing a better job than any other age group in moving out of poverty. The senior workforce, too, has grown. The annual event gives recognition SCSEP efforts to serve the job training and placement needs of people with limited financial resources who are age 55 or older and encourages employers to draw upon the underutilized pool of experienced and committed older American workers.
America is witnessing a dramatic growth in the number of citizens who are 55 or older, a trend that will continue well into the 21st century. As the population continues to age, older Americans will play an increasingly important role in maintaining our economy and America’s leadership in the world marketplace, according to SCSEP.
First celebrated in the Eisenhower Administration, and celebrated nearly every year since that time, National Employ Older Workers Week activities focus on recognizing the importance of the participation of older workers in the labor force.
The organizers say this is an important opportunity for elected officials, employers, and the general public to highlight the vital role of older workers in the current labor force and the continuing importance of the participation of older workers in meeting the employment needs of our 21st century economy.
Experience Works through SCSEP, provides job-training for older workers and senior citizens with low incomes and few employment options annually, helping them gain the necessary skills to find and keep a better- paying job.
Older workers are a asset to any employer they are a valuable asset — loyal, dependable, well-trained workers with a lifetime’s worth of experience to share.

This letter is directed to the person who shot our grey cat with a pellet gun on the night of August 21st. You shot him in the spine and crippled him, but we took him to the veterinarian and he was regaining movement in his legs during the 17 days he was there. However, his bladder would not work and he died on the night of September 7th.
I bet you're real proud of yourself.
