Happy Herman's Hideaway

Herman and Dutchess

Hello beautiful people of San Saba…what a week this dachshund has had! Our friends, Janette, Randy and Dutchess from Ohio came for a visit and I have been busy showing them wonders of our little Texas town. We went to Mill Pond, Harry’s Department Store, The Mercantile, Alamo Pecan and then we stopped by to meet the ladies of the San Saba News and Star. Why I must tell you guys such a fuss was made over us by those we met and I wish to thank everyone very much for the down home hospitality shown my guests! A pretty big thing is made of how friendly Texans are and I do believe the point was well made!

Alzheimer’s Texas to Host Educational Lunch N’ Learn

It is estimated 340,000 Texans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. In an effort to increase disease awareness, provide community education to caregivers and support those affected by the disease, Alzheimer’s Texas will host an educational Lunch N’ Learn in Lampasas, Texas.

Stephen Catoe, Positive Approach to care, Validation Therapy Trainer, and Alzheimer’s Texas Education Specialist, will present tips and strategies for effective communication with persons with dementia. During the class, participants will explore techniques of verbal, non-verbal, and physical communication. Effective communication with a person suffering from memory loss is very important and can help improve behavior. These techniques may help improve quality of life as well as success in caregiving.

County Judge’s Update

Submitted by San Saba County Judge Byron Theodosis 

Courthouse Restoration Status -
Please read the cutline with the accompanying photo.
EMS -
LIFEGUARD has been our EMS providers since August 1st. They work well with our dispatch personnel, and we have heard nothing but praise for their response time and patient care. We are well pleased with them.
Legislature -
Some say that we would be better served if instead of meeting for 140 days every two years, the state legislature would meet for two days every 140 years. Austin continues to drive up property appraisals and to send unfunded mandates to local government and schools. They continue to mandate funding of several county programs and expanded school spending that must ultimately be paid through real estate taxes.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service San Saba CountyWe

On July 25, 2017, the San Saba County Texas Extension Education Association hosted our wonderful Lunch and Learn activity at the Mill Pond Park Civic Center with the Mature Driver Program in Waco.

What is the Mature Driver Program you may ask. The Mature Driver Program is a traffic safety educational program for adult drivers, focusing on ages 55 and older. The Program is a collaboration between Baylor Scott&White Hillcrest and the Texas Dept. of Transportation. The Program does not make decisions about whether a person should continue to drive and cannot suspend or terminate a person’s driver’s license.
