Seeds from the Sower

A teacher was encouraging his class to be kind and think of the needs of the people around them. "Remember, kids, you were put here to help others."

"But," protested one of the students, "what were the others put here for?"

Where would we be if no one helped us? What if no one taught us to read or write or do arithmetic? Sometimes we forget to think about all of the help that others have given us and focus only on ourselves. It is hard to imagine where we would be if no one had ever helped us.

So, if we have been helped, should we not also do the same for others? We need to have a goal that reminds us to help everyone we can.

As we seek to help others, God will help us. May we never forget that every time we help pull someone uphill, we will find ourselves getting closer to the top.

Just for today, rather than pointing a finger at someone, hold out a helping hand.

The Arrival of a Very Special Guest

Years ago we lived near a town that got the news the President of the United States was coming there for a visit. Yes, there was a lot of excitement. The president arrived, school was let out and everybody lined up by the roads waving and cheering welcoming the president as his motorcade drove by.

Down Memory Lane

Down Memory Lane

64 Years Ago

April 5, 1956

Monday, May 7, 1956, will be called Ladies Day at the San Saba County Centennial Celebration. On this day the fair ladies of the county will present a style show, showing the dresses worn from 100 years back right up to and including this present day.

Mr. and Mrs. Burns Lane attended their son's wedding. Also attending the wedding were the bridegroom's sister, Mrs. Charles W. Bowen and son, Lane, of Snyder.

The new public scales in San Saba were "broken in" last week when a truckload of maize, belonging to San Saba Produce and grossing 48,880 pounds, was the first to pull onto the weighing platform for an official weighing. The new scales, recently purchased by the county and located on the jail block, will accommodate a 60-foot vehicle.

Pet Talk

Pet Talk

Activity trackers are wearable electronic accessories that many individuals use to track their health and help them meet their fitness goals. Though activity trackers are a useful tool for humans looking to improve their well-being, they may also be beneficial to pet owners looking for more insight into the health metrics of their furry friend.

Dr. Lori Teller, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, offers some insight on the benefits and drawbacks of these monitors, as well as whether an activity tracker is right for your pet.

Activity monitors for pets may be able to measure step count, quality of sleep, heart rate, respiration rate, ambient temperature, and the pet’s location via GPS.

“Owners who use their own trackers may find it fun to compare with their pet’s information or use it as motivation to increase their pet’s activity,” Teller said.

Locally owned and operated Texas Dairy Queen (TDQ) Restaurants are working hard to serve communities

Texas Dairy Queen (TDQ) has long been famous for its friendly and convenient drive-thru service. As TDQ Operators adhere to local government mandates to shutter dining rooms across the state, that friendliness and convenience is now more important than ever.

Since food service has been deemed an essential business by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, TDQ is continuing to offer its entire menu lineup of tasty treats and eats via drive-thru windows, as well as delivery and online ordering where available, at its nearly 600 locations throughout the Lone Star State.

“Texans can still enjoy Dairy Queen’s iconic hospitality with safety and convenience,” said Lou Romanus, CEO of the Texas Dairy Queen Operators’ Council. “Our 600 Dairy Queen’s across our great state are all owned by entrepreneurs who are working hard to keep their restaurants open.”
