The Postscript

By Carrie Classon

I come from a family of letter writers.

On my mother’s side we have a tradition that began well before I was born, called the “Round Robin.” The Round Robin is a circulated letter sent to a list of almost two dozen family members. When the Robin arrives in my mailbox, my previous letter will be the oldest in the pile. I read all the letters that came after mine, put a new letter on the top, and mail it to the next person on the list.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

VBS is here! The first night was a little short on kids, but did we ever have a great group of adults and older students to make all systems go. My personal helpers were Lanie and Piper. By the time we had learned the opening song, taught four separate classes and finished off on the grand finale, we were all exhausted.

Debbie Phelan had a great group of youth helping her with the crafts. I have to admit crafts were always my favorite part of VBS. Our trusty leader was Karla Steele, and she kept us all on track. We are hoping for a much larger group of kids tomorrow night. Johnnie and Lynn Reeves, Mrs. Kubin, Kay McKee and a host of other excellent teachers and helpers are making this a fun-filled blast of the gospel. Whether we have 10 or 100 we are excited to present the saving message of the Bible. I hope you were one of the parents that sent your children to this once a year experience.

Can We Save Our Hill Country Water for Future Generations?

What got me to thinking about this topic, again, was an article I found in the Cynthia and George Mitchell blog. The article was written by Katherine Romans, the very able and knowledgeable Executive Director of the Hill Country Alliance.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

The Disaster Relief Committee has officially completed the use of the donated monies. According to the post I saw some 26 homes were assisted in their repairs. I have no doubt more could have been done if there had been more money, but that is a moot point. I know there are 26 blessed families who have new windows and a few also have had roof repairs. Those folks who had insurance are wading their way through delays and overworked vendors. The most complaints I have heard are the roofers. They are getting it done; it is just taking a bit longer than expected. I want to send out a hearty thank you to the disaster committee for their hard work and compassion.

Russ and I drove into Brownwood today to pick up some supplies. This drought and heat is taking a horrible toll on the trees in this area. We have quite a large clean up to do on storm damaged trees, but I am very much afraid that we are going to lose most of the trees on the top of our hill.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Melted Coastal Dad

Hello beautiful San Saba souls! How in the world are you? The parentals and I had quite the adventure since last we spoke. We left the gently rolling hills, the lovely, quaint downtown beauty of home owned businesses and the quiet streets of San Saba to journey to the Houston area. Yep, drove from Viennese Waltz to crazy bone crushing mosh pit! Mom has more medical tests coming up and she wanted a trip home to see the kids before all that started again so off we went. I will discuss the million car march a bit later but for now say we were all excited about seeing family.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor and the good Folks of San Saba County

"Just the Facts". . . We have all heard Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet say this. . . "Just the Facts."

Well, most of you who know me, know that I have tended to "take the high road" to avoid controversy concerning my time at the local radio stations and especially after my retirement from them.

But, after some recent events and comments from friends and business associates, I feel it is time for "Just the Facts."

The Bend News

By Jo Price

Here we are starting July and the hot dry weather is still upon us.

There are some who are saying it will rain on the 4th of July and we certainly hope that is true. Speaking of the 4th, plan to attend some of the fireworks that will be around this area, instead of wasting your time and money on buying fireworks. It will be much safer and much less danger of starting a fire in the dry pastures. Just plan on having a safer and fun 4th.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Although I will not here to see the photos of the 4th of July celebrations, I know everyone is going to have a splendiferous time. I expect the heat will be a factor, but it will be tolerated because of all the fun activities to be enjoyed around the area. Russ will enjoy the fireworks from the porch of the house, but he will not attend. I sincerely hope that the Howler’s Club has a rousingly successful event.

They have certainly worked hard enough these past months to get everyone ready.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Jonathan Lord and Nick Taylor, two young men who stepped up to help their hometown of Richland Springs. There were many others helping, but too often we don’t see the younger generations stepping up. Jonathan continued their mission with the advice of his pastor, Bro Sam, and arranged for management of donated funds.
