The Bend News

By Jo Price

The rain came again over this past week leaving an inch and light shower Sunday. Any moisture is welcome. The weather will warm up the latter part of this week, which is always nice to hear.

William Price is now playing flag football and many members of his family watched as his team won their first game this past week. It is exciting to watch the little guys play. They played under the lights at the field in the park.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Thank you to all the veterans and guests who came to lunch on Friday. The school staff under the management of Shannon Sutherland prepared a delicious meal for our guests. The children prepared notes of appreciation for our service veterans. We are missing a few of our veterans this year, but they are not forgotten.

One of my ex-students from Dallas, posted a picture of her grandfather, a Vietnam veteran and asked the NFL to find another way to protest; our troops deserve respect and recognition. I agree. Thank you to all the awesome service members who have served both my countries nobly. Stan Larremore and Mr. Harkey, in full uniform, spent some time with the kids and staff. It was a great day.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

That Magical Time of Year

By Cathy Ledbetter

Here it is! It is time for Quilt Festival and Opening Weekend (of Deer Season)!! This is a magical time of year for me and for my family.

I try to explain to people the meaning of Opening Weekend and hardly anyone understands. We generally have more people here for opening weekend than we do for Christmas and Thanksgiving combined. There is sitting around the fire, lots of talking and laughing, lots of food, and a whole lot of hunting. The gate stays open and all the neighbors stop by to visit. They may have a deer to show, or they may just want to check in to find out what everyone else is seeing.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Russ and I were some of the lucky ones that received a short burst of rain Saturday evening. The totals were between .4 and .7 inches. Rob Brockman teased me Sunday because he did not get very much and I did. He said that the rain falls on the unrighteous as well as the righteous. I agreed with him whichever way you want to turn it.

We definitely need to have a little more in this area.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom 

Early this morning I heard this wild wind rushing the house so I knew the front had come through. Unfortunately, the promised rain did not come with it. We are due for a good soaker rain, but I don’t see it in the forecast. The cool weather will be refreshing especially during recess for the kids. I can tell you there were some red faced kiddos.

The final home senior game has come and gone. It was a victorious game, but I suspect that some of the tears being shed were not for the victory. Until you have kissed your son or daughter goodbye, you cannot truly understand the heart wrenching that occurs.

I think this must be the greatest self-doubting time for a parent.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

Fun with Mutations 

Have you ever been having a conversation with someone and suddenly the other person is looking at you as if you have two heads? Surely someone has said something at some time to cause you to look at them that way. We can be conversing along with someone, right along the same path, when suddenly something that is totally logical and sensible and true to one of the parties stops the other party dead in his or her tracks, trying to find any sense at all in what he or she just heard.

What are the Experts Saying About Taking Care of the Hill Country?

I recently attended the Annual Leadership Conference of the Hill Country Alliance (HCA). The HCA is one of my favorite organizations, for several reasons.

First, its focus is the land, the water and the people of the Hill Country. One of their main activities is to host educational events to help educate the public about various ecological issues in the Hill Country.

One of their main strengths is that they bring together individuals and organizations that might not ever talk to each other but who have knowledge and expertise in important areas of land management, water conservation and use, and the general health of the Hill Country habitat. These folks include ranchers, farmers, landowners, government agency experts, business and industry people and elected officials—all people who have a stake in the future of the Hill Country.
