The Postscript

The Postscript

I glanced up as the bells rang to herald new customers walking into the used clothing store. I was looking for a pair of warm dress pants. Visiting my parents in Minnesota, I had forgotten entirely about the possibility of extreme cold and the idea of going out that night in tights and a skirt seemed preposterous.

Luckily, I found a like-new pair of black jeans with just a little sparkle on the pocket for a good price. I was wandering around the store with these jeans in my hand—just in case I saw something else that I might need—while I waited for the line at the check-out counter to get a little shorter. Maybe I could find a silver jacket, I thought, that would look nice on a cold winter night.

The Richland Springs Report

Merry Christmas everyone.

Richland Springs is just a little merrier this year as our fighting Coyotes brought home a decisive win over Motley County.

Deep in the heart of Texas our football stars were shining bright on Wednesday. Richland Coyotes are known for their hard hitting, all out play.

Wednesday was no different. The plan of the day was to contain number 4, Jake Richards, and number 13, Demetric Sims.

I felt sorry for Richards because he just couldn’t go anywhere without a swarm of Coyotes falling on him or tripping him up.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Merry Christmas my dear San Saba loves! I hope you had a wonderful, warm, exciting and loving celebration! I would like to say the parentals and I danced in the light of Christmas morning with excitement but nah, we were just our normal selves, sleepy eyed, a bit slow moving with the sound of creaky old bones pretty much ringing out rather than sleigh bells.

We were without extended family around us this Christmas but that being said as long as we have each other we a have a party and fun. I always think about those who are truly alone, who have no one at all with whom to spend the holidays and I feel very blessed.

Hang Your hat with rotary

Hang Your hat with rotary

Have you ever had the “World’s Greatest Meal”? We have.

Last week, the Rotary Club of San Saba joined with the Rotary Club of Brady and celebrated the Christmas season.Itis alongstanding tradition that the two clubs join together for fellowship and food.

When I first moved to San Saba in 1986, one of the first things I did was join the Rotary Club. As I mentioned before, my dad was a Rotarian and I liked what I saw in the organization. I was a member of the Rotary Club in Weatherford when we lived there. My father-inlaw, Bob Stone, was a member of the Rotary Club in Weatherford. I was a young, aspiring Sales Manager for the newspaper in that town. I asked my father-in-law if I could join. Unknown to me, you did not ask to join Rotary at that time, you were asked to join. Bob gave me a very serious look and said “I’ll see what I can do.” He made that happen and I am very grateful to him for his efforts.

The Bend News

Here we go again. . . Sunday was shirt sleeve weather and Monday - it is time for winter wear. No rain in the forecast for us; seems folks over to the east may get some moisture, but nothing for us in San Saba.

The first day of winter is December 22nd, but it may be a shirt sleeve weather on that day. Hanukkah is Monday, December 23rd.

Christmas is just around the corner and I hope everyone has their shopping finished. There will be just seven more days after the paper hits the street. The last day of school is Thursday, and then the kids will be out of school for Christmas.

The Idle American

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

It is a simple request, embodied in a one-syllable, five-letter word. Yet, it is potentially “punch-packing,” whether perused by an individual, or considered by an entire nation, or even the world.

Whoever penned it likely had no clue that its message should be implemented beyond the walls of Chick-fil-A by a world spinning insanely fast, with little thought to abrupt stops that could occur at any moment.

Upcoming Holiday Home Tour in Llano

A beautifully renovated home on W. Luce in Llano is a “must see” on the upcoming Holiday Home Tour. Joni Huls and Dyana Lee purchased the home in 2015 and hired local builder, Bubba Beckham, to transform this little bungalow built over 100 years ago.

The original footprint of the house was not changed but just about everything else was. The ceilings were raised to 12 feet and several walls were removed to give a more open feeling. Windows were added to bring in more light and a beautiful master bath was added.

The builder salvaged much of the interior wood from the original house and repurposed it in many creative ways. You’ll see it on the wall in the entry and wrapping the new ceiling beams in the living room. The kitchen even has sliding barn doors and a beautiful vent hood made from the old wood. This is offset by a distinctive tile backsplash, quartz countertops and beautiful cabinets finished by Dana Sperry of Granite Shoals.

Letter to the Editor

Super Heroes Among Us

Dear Editor,

We are all familiar with the phrase “Super Hero.” In fact, it’s easy for some of us to take what we watch in movies and turn those individuals’ actions and on-screen achievements into reality. But we have real live heroes living right here in San Saba. You see them every day.

I’m writing to bring appreciation to that group of heroes in our community who don’t use special effects or computer- generated action to achieve their superhuman actions. They just voluntarily show up, risk their lives and save others.

Down Memory Lane

Dayton Brandenberger, rancher living about five miles east of San Saba, has been named by Sheriff Brantley Barker to succeed Shelton Shaw as deputy sheriff for this county.

County Judge M. W. Trussell reports that in county court last Saturday a young man from Johnson City pleaded guilty to a swindling charge and was assessed a fine and costs totaling about $64.

As a service to local patrons during the Christmas season, the San Saba post office will remain open all day on Saturday, Dec. 12 and on Saturday, Dec. 19. The office customarily closes on Saturday afternoon. Postmaster W. E. (Salty) Bryant this week urged local residents to do their Christmas mailing as early as possible in order that the post office department can offer better service. Christmas cards can be mailed anywhere this year with a two cent stamp if they are left unsealed.
