San Saba Garden Club September Yard of the Month

Article Image Alt Text
Article Image Alt Text

By Karen Sloan

We know that August is a dreadful month for gardens and yards. Until the cooler autumn weather arrives and before the dormant season sets in, the summer heat often stretches into September. Our yards, bushes, trees, plants and flowers are all anxious to perform one last time before their winter sleep occurs. As homeowners, we must persevere until the briskness of fall begins by doing what we can to keep our outdoor landscapes alive and enjoyable.

Bruce and Emma Stewart at 1007 E. Wallace do just that. As Bruce indicated, he doesn’t have a lot blooming right now and he has struggled to keep the lawn green in spite of the fungus that attacked the St. Augustine from last year’s heavy rains and then this year the subdued rainfall and lack of adequate water, which is not unheard of in our area.

Rotary has two platinum sponsors with Lower Colorado River Authority and Central Texas Telephone Communications helping to make this fundraiser golf tournament a huge success.

Expectations high for Archery-Only Hunting Season opening September 28

The hot, dry conditions that have been gripping most of Texas could make Saturday’s archery-only white-tailed deer season opener a challenge for bow hunters, yet those who know how to work the conditions can still find good hunting.

For the first time this fall, hunters are required to report all antlerless deer harvested in 21 south-central Texas counties—see details below.

“Although dry conditions should encourage deer to frequent feeders more consistently and more often, the hot temperatures may curtail movement during much of the day except for the periods around dawn and dusk,” said Alan Cain, TPWD white-tailed deer program leader. “Until cooler temperatures arrive and deer movement picks up hunters may consider using game cameras to narrow down peak deer movement near their favorite hunting location and increase chances of success.”

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME II

The State of Texas vs. Louis Davenport The following testimony was taken at the examining trial in the above mentioned case.

Jim Richards testified that Kerns’ reputation for truth and veracity was bad. Cross-examined. Witness said that Kerns’ bad reputation partly grew out of a certain case in which Kerns had been where Turner was said to have been killed. He could not recognize any of the men. After they got to within about sixty or seventy-five yards of him he recognized Mr. Cochran. Cross-examined. Witness was asked about the second test, in which he went to where Turner was killed to see if persons left at the house could recognize them.
