By Elizabeth Chambers

The San Saba High School Cheerleaders attended the UIL State Sprit Championships in Ft. Worth on January 11, 2018. The contest consists of three preliminary rounds in Band Dance, Crowd-Leading Cheer and Fight Song. The girls competed against 38 other schools for an opportunity to enter the top 20 for the final round. The girls ended up 17th overall in the preliminary rounds. However, in the final round, the Game Day Performance, scores are started over. The girls have 3 minutes to present a true game day sideline performance. After prelims, our girls worked on getting a threeminute performance perfected for the final Game Day Competition. They must perform their band dance, react to an announced situation and respond with the correct offense or defense cheer, execute their crowd-leading cheer and end with their fight song.

The Texas Rangers and the San Saba Mob

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME I

Editor’s Note – Part 25 in a continuing series.

Soon thereafter McCarty haunted the Ranger camp. The old man finally gave in as his conscience could stand it no more. He told all he knew and made a full confession to Mc- Donald. In a letter to Mabry on 26 September 1897, McDonald Wrote:

Another one of the Mob has unfolded to me and made affidavit to it, of the signs, passwords and of the murder of Jim Brown and who he says was killed by the Mob. He testified for Bill Ogle in the examining trial and stated things that were not true, but he says he was made to do it and that he would be killed by them if he refused to obey their bidding. But that it had been worrying him so badly that he thinks he would die. And he unfolded everything and that as he had got a chance to tell on them or loose his place and probably his life.

2017 Regional Pecan Show Results

By Neal Alexander

The Central Region Pecan Show was held in Bell County on December 6th and 7th, 2017. There were 161 entries, representing 11 Texas counties in the Central, Central West and Southwest districts. Dr. Larry Stein acted as judge. Pecans of outstanding quality were seen in this regional competition, which we believe reflects on the educational efforts of Texas A&M AgriLife extension agents and specialists in Texas to provide resources, expertise and training on pecan production and management.

The top three places in each variety class will be held in frozen storage until the state show to be held at the Texas Pecan Growers Conference in San Marcos, July 15-18.
