Decorate for Fall Challenge

By Anne Vincent

To all the San Saba businesses that have accepted the Garden Club Decorate for Fall Challenge, the San Saba Garden Club members would like to extend a loud and hearty “thank you”!

Many, many of these businesses have gotten pumpkins from the club which will use the donated funds to further the continuing projects sponsored by the club.

The unknown pumpkin fairy will continue to deliver pumpkins to some downtown doorways and to public places courtesy of the generosity and requests of City National Bank and Commercial National Bank.

By Coach Jerod Fikac

The San Saba Armadillos football team mounted a strong comeback in the fourth quarter on Friday Night in Cross Plains to earn a hard fought win. The Dills fell behind 19-0 after a couple stalled drives and turnovers only to fight back before halftime to get the score to 25-20.

The first half saw the offense get out to a slow start but get its footing in the second quarter scoring three touchdowns all coming through the air. Sean O’Keefe connected with Cole Tupin for a 55 yard touchdown first then added another after a turnover connecting with Klay Prew from 4 yards out

Cross Plains had one speedyback that the Dillos could not  catch. He got loose three times against the combined 7th and 8th Dillo defense.

The Dillo offense scored once, but actually threatened three more times but could not get the job done. There were times when the seventh grade offense and defense outplayed the eighth grade offense and defense.

My Favorite Fall Flowers

When the subject of Native Hill Country Wildflowers comes up, most folks think about bluebonnets, Indian blanket, Indian paintbrush, winecup, white prickly poppy—all things that bloom in the Spring. While I certainly like our spring flowers, I happen to like fall even more. Here are some of my favorite fall flowers, in no special order.

Gayfeather or liatris (Liatris mucronata) grows with erect stems up to 2 to 3 feet tall. The leaves are very numerous, narrow and long, and the flower head is a spire-like structure up to about a foot long. The flower head is made up of many small purple flowers with tiny purple threads or filaments sticking out, giving the flower head an interesting texture.

The Garden Club has done so many things for our town so this is just one more of their generous gestures. They will have a Garden Club Open House on September 22, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM and visitors are encouraged to stop in and meet club members and view the historic building.
