At the encouragement of the Keep San Saba Beautiful (KSSB) Commission, the 2018 San Saba Elementary 4th grade class has taken part in Keep Texas Beautiful's "Waste in Place" curriculum for several days in May through lessons taught by their teachers in the school setting.

County Judge’s Update

By Michael Bohensky

A note on the courthouse restoration financing: the county’s finance manager, Mr. Vince Vialle, requested bids from 46 banks. The winning bid, at a very competitive interest rate of 2.450%, was from The Bank & Trust in Sonora, TX, whose president happens to be our own Brady Johnson.

In recent communications with me, Brady has referred to himself as both: "An Old Armadillo" and “Eleanor and Jerry’s oldest and smartest child.” He did add a “lol” (laugh out loud) at the end of that.

Many come together for annual Spring Cleanup

By Sharon O'Neill

April 14th completed another successful city-wide annual cleanup for Keep San Saba Beautiful (KSSB) and their “Don’t Mess With Texas” and Keep America Beautiful “Great American Cleanup” partners. Cleanup week started off with the Cub Scout cleanup of Risien Park on Monday. Then Oscar the Grouch (Patty Shaw and Gale Ivy) visited San Saba Elementary and Middle School students on Thursday and Friday. Saturday ended the week with the help of 40 volunteers who braved the wind and cold temperature.

Nine truck and six trailer loads of trash and debris were collected during the 3 hour cleanup. Volunteers picked up approximately 50 bags of litter along the highways entering town, along city streets and in the parks. The remainder of trash collected was picked up at homes by City employees and brought out to the transfer site by County residents who took advantage of the FREE cleanup day drop-off.

A Busy End of the Year

By Anne H. Vincent

May Day, Tuesday, May 1st, was the last official San Saba Garden Club meeting for the 2017-2018 year, but not the last activity for the current year. Hostesses, Becky Whitley, Beth Griess, Leanne Pollock, Gail Bruner, Nancy Van Etten and President Dianna Furlan welcomed members and club guests to hear Marlene Gillman of Killeen, Texas, and the Temple Garden Club present interesting information on "Pollinators and Welcoming them into Our Gardens."

Ms. Gillman explained that the three most popular, beautiful, and needed pollinators are hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. All three are always welcome but can be threatened as in the case of butterflies and bees.

San Saba Garden Club members pilgrimage to Legacy Plaza

By Anne H. Vincent

Thirteen San Saba Garden Club members stepped back in time as they enjoyed Legacy Plaza in Goldthwaite on Tuesday, April 3rd.

Legacy Plaza, the result of one resident’s (Jan Fischer) desire to make a lasting contribution to her community as well as a monument to native Americans who roamed these areas more than ten thousand years ago, is located in downtown Goldthwaite on Fisher Street or US Highway 183. Ms. Fischer, together with grants from the Meadows Foundation, the LCRA, the City of Goldthwaite, and other central Texas and local entities, built Legacy Plaza gardens to represent life along the Colorado River in prehistoric times.
