Need for financial assistance; 3.) High college entrance exam scores; 4.) Successful participation in UIL academic competition; 5.) Plans to enroll for the fall semester in an accredited college or university in the state of Texas and; 6.) Community involvement.

The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Selected passages from Volume I
Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

Editor’s Note: Part 38b in a continuing series.

After all, the people had endured and suffered much.

The populace had been bullied and terrified, had their elections stolen, and been trampled into submission.

These were the darkest days in the history of the county, when no man’s life was immune from the Mob council.

Therefore, it was only right the final victory belonged to them, the citizens of a free democratic state. In all fairness, their ability to force such a change would never have become reality without the heroic efforts of Sanderson, the Rangers or Linden.

Camp Billy Gibbons - San Saba County’s hidden gem for Boy Scouts

By Donna Webb, Reporter

Recently, I found a hidden gem in San Saba County. It took me awhile that day. . . after about 15 miles down a dirt/rock road (CR 360) off Hwy 190 just past Richland Springs. Some residents already know about it; some may have forgotten about it, while others may not have a clue.The hidden gem is Camp Billy Gibbons! Yes, the Boy Scout camp is really a gem. . . you see, I know because I was invited to see it and watch some of the Scouts in action.
