Child Seat Safety Check held in San Saba

By Melanie Potter

The opportunity for the members of the community here in San Saba to have their child's car seat inspected and the placement of that seat checked in their car was held in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church on May 11, 2017. The event began at 10:30 a.m. and ran until 2:00 p.m. This was an excellent partnership between Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, San Saba County; Baylor Scott & White KidSafe, and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension - Passenger Safety Project in cooperation with TxDOT.

Here are some interesting statistics from the event. First, over the total time of the event, 33 child safety seat inspections were conducted. Second, 18 new seats were issued to families in the community. And third, eight old or unsafe seats were collected and disposed of safely.

The Richland Springs Report

We touched down at DFW promptly at 12:18 p.m. I could tell from the happy voices that everyone was glad we were back. The Perry family gathered up their luggage and headed out to a family water park tour. The Lusty family gathered up Keston and Brandon and headed home. I hope they have open ears because these kids have had a plethora of new adventures this week. They handled the lack of McD’s, Whataburger and Chicken Express well. Although not every bite of food was enjoyed, they at least tried all the new dishes presented.

If you don’t like beans and rice or fresh sweet fruit, Costa Rica is not for you. They are an extremely “green” country and are proud of their green status. We had steak several times, cut thin and lightly spiced. I will say truly that it didn’t hold a candle to a good Texas steak, but it was good. Breakfast at any hotel was a complete, and I mean complete breakfast buffet. No child should have come home hungry.

LCRA/Hamilton County Electric Cooperative award $8,003 grant to Lometa ISD

The Lometa Independent School District soon will improve its track facility thanks to an $8,003 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority and Hamilton County Electric Cooperative. The grant, part of LCRA's Community Development Partnership Program, will enable Lometa ISD to add a 6-foot-tall fence around its track. An additional $7,000 in local matching funds will help pay for the fence.

The track surrounds the district's football field, which has a residential area on one side and a large pasture on the other. Domestic animals and wildlife are often found at the track, creating potentially unsafe situations for both students and visitors. The new fence will help keep animals away, making the football field and track safer and more secure.

Honoring our Heroes on Memorial Day

By Ray Vigil

On Memorial Day, we honor the soldiers and service members who have given their lives for our nation. Social Security respects the heroism and courage of our military service members, and we remember those who have given their lives in defense of freedom. Part of how we honor service members is the way we provide Social Security benefits.

The unexpected loss of a family member is a difficult experience for anyone. Social Security helps by providing benefits to protect service members’ dependents. Widows, widowers, and their dependent children may be eligible for Social Security survivors benefits. You can learn more about Social Security survivors benefits at www.socialsecurity. gov/survivors.
