By Coach Ronnie Schulze
 
The Seventh Grade Dillos came away with a hard earned 16-6 victory over the Seventh Grade Hico Tigers in Hico Thursday night. Hico outsized the Dillos, but determination and grit pulled them through forthe victory. San Saba kicked to Hico to begin the game. The Tigers used up most of the first quarter driving for a score. The P.A.T. failed and San Saba trailed 6-0. Hico kicked to San Saba with only a short time left in the first quarter. Polo Davila ran for 9, and then 2. Zachary Collier gained 6, Davila 6, Collier 5, Davila 3, Collier 5. Wesley Lackey bootlegged the ball, picked up a great block by John Spence and rambled 25 yards for a touchdown. Davila ran in the extra point try. It was 8-6 Dillos.

Richland Springs Junior High Casts One Act Play

The Richland Springs Junior High has chosen The Happy Scarecrow by I. E. Clark as their UIL Competition play for this year. They will compete at the District Meet in Rochelle on November 30, 2016. The Happy Scarecrow is a delightful children’s play which is also referred to as a “morality play.” A mean witch dares a frilly little fairy to prove there’s such a thing as happiness. The fairy brings a scarecrow to life and promises to make him a real man if he can find happiness. It is a strange search, sometimes comical and sometimes sad.

Wedding Oak Winery 2016 Harvest: A challenging year, a stellar vintage

By Penny S. Adams
 
Heavy rain, hail, searing arid heat, followed by more sustained heavy rain. That sounds like a recipe for disaster for a farmer. That's what we faced this year. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: growing grapes in Texas ain't for the faint of heart. To be able to successfully harvest a high-quality crop takes vigilant vineyard management and a healthy dose of luck. It is well worth the effort. The best wines start in the vineyard. Early in the growing season, we experienced dry conditions which persisted from pruning through bud break. Fortunately, frequent heavy rainfall midseason allowed for larger grape clusters during the cell division stage.
