County Judge’s Update

Article Image Alt Text

I am glad to report that I successfully pled our case before the Texas Jail Standards Commission, and we have been granted a two-week period to repair the latest finding, which threatened to close our jail: The availability of hot and cold running water in the cells presently being used as a ‘holding facility.’ The repairs should be completed by the time you are reading this. We continue working towards mutually beneficial interlocal agreements with a couple of our adjoining counties to establish a more convenient arrangement for the housing of our prisoners until the right permanent and cost-effective regional solution can be achieved.

When asked how he came up with the idea of a Pop-Up-Studio, Lackey responded that “Some of my fondest memories as a child were when photographers would travel to my little hometown and set up a portrait studio. It became part of my inspiration as a young photographer. Since my debut in January was such a success, I wanted to give more people the opportunity to have professional portraits made at an affordable price, and without having to travel far from home. I am excited and humbled to continue to offer my services to the residents of San Saba and the surrounding communities.”

Rainwater Harvesting

Article Image Alt Text

By Anne H. Vincent

Rainwater harvesting is essential in many areas of the world, especially the USA's Desert Southwest, and includes the frequently drought-stricken parts of Texas that include San Saba, Lampasas, Brown, McCulloch, Llano and Comanche, as well as many other counties. The regularly scheduled meeting of the San Saba Garden Club was held on January 8th and the focus of the meeting was to study and discuss these critical issues and what is involved in critical use of harvesting rainwater.

San Saba county normally receives an average rainfall between 24-32 inches, but because of the unusual and extensive monsoon rains this past fall, San Saba has received between 40 and 50 inches this past year. Between 13 and 18 inches fell in the San Saba and Lampasas areas in October alone.
