Hill Country Naturalist

Last week I wrote about some Hill Country native trees and shrubs that are not rare, but certainly not common. In the process of writing I realized there were more trees and shrubs in that category than I thought, so here are several more.

• Bigtooth maple (Acer grandidentatum) is the famous tree of Lost Maples State Park. It also grows in parts of Big Bend National Park as well as in deep canyons of Bandera, Kerr, Kendall, Real and Uvalde counties. It is characterized by leaves that are 2 to 3 inches long and wide with three lobes and entire margins. In the fall these trees turn spectacular shades of yellow orange and red. They have been successfully cultivated in many parts of the state.

The Oliver family gathered at Harmony Ridge on Sunday, June 9, 2019 for their annual reunion. The area was settled in the mid-1870s by Andrew, Mark and Polk Oliver.

For part of the morning devotional, Reunion President Jarrett Oliver read entries from Alexander Oliver's dairy written from August 9, 1864 to August 9, 1867. During this time, Alexander's family had many struggles but he put his trust in God and was always thankful for God's protection and care.

Rotary Club of San Saba to hold 37th annual Honor Student Banquet

Article Image Alt Text

The Rotary Club of San Saba will present their 37th Annual Honor Student Banquet Thursday, May 16th, at the San Saba Civic Center. The banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Begun in 1982, the San Saba Rotary Club Honor Student Banquet is a way the club can encourage local high school students to achieve high scholastic standards. All San Saba County high school students who maintain a 90 or better average for the academic year are invited to be a guest of the club for the event.

In the late 1980’s, San Saba High School math teacher and retired army officer, Joe Gary, suggested that the club have a medal cast that could be presented to the student honorees. A few years later, the club began presenting a shadowbox to those students who have been four-year honorees.
