He told me that Bill James had accused him of it. He said that them Methodists were talking too much about him and that James had to keep his mouth shut and that if he did not do it he had a way of making him do it.

San Saba ISD honors Maintenance and Custodial Staff at Board Meeting

By Michael Bohensky

On Monday, August 13th, the San Saba ISD Board of Trustees recognized the custodial and maintenance staff for their dedication and work over the summer in preparing the facilities and grounds for a new school year.

Here we go everyone the 2018-2019 school year has begun. Our halls came alive with the sound of young voices. We were pleased to see some new faces along with our familiar sweeties. Everyone is excited this first week of school. It doesn’t always last for everyone, but here at the beginning all is good. I am looking forward to a super successful year. Our school scores were good, but we want them better. Time will show us if we  succeeded. Teachers have been blessed with more paperwork thanks to someone who is not in the classroom. Apparently we have to keep samples of all work so that we can prove we have spent time teaching.

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.
