San Saba County aids victims of Hurricane Harvey in Woodsboro area

by Michelle Whitley

When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th, folks around Woodsboro woke up the next day to no electricity, water, sewer, no phone lines or cell phone service, as well as no gasoline for their cars or their generators.

San Saba County came to their aid - Will and Wesley Robertson, Billy Ray Walker and Farrel Whitley left the following week with a load of fuel as well as cash donations and were able to provide over 1100 gallons of fuel to folks in need. The people were amazed that this was a gift from people they didn't know.

The Texas Rangers and the San Saba Mob

by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME I

Editor’s Note – Part 12 of a continuing series.

The Rangers Take Charge

While the two factions raged, the Rangers immediately went to work. Sullivan, who commanded the force, was at first the right man for the job. In 1889, he cracked the Hartman murder case and while doing so became familiar with both Mob and anti-Mob factions. Sullivan was fearless, smart, energetic, and adept at acquiring vital information needed for a good investigation. The situation was grim as reflected in his several letters to the adjutant general from Regency.

Wildlife is Big Business in San Saba County

By Macy Ledbetter 

Everyone appreciates a big whitetail buck, a flock of turkey, or seeing a diversity of small game, right? Did the photo of this big buck catch your attention and get you thinking about the upcoming hunting season? It does that to thousands of out- of-town visitors and hunters too so I need your help immediately to ensure this positive trend continues for our county.

The San Saba County Wildlife & Livestock Association was formed to help provide the necessary matching funds to ensure the continued presence of Texas Wildlife Services’ Wildlife Damage Management technicians in San Saba County. New state regulations mandate our county must increase our shared funding responsibilities by $12,000 starting in 2018 to keep both trappers active.
