The Texas Rangers and the San Saba Mob

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME 1

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

Editor's Note - Part 32a of a continuing series.

In the end the release of Ogle was most affected not by his friends in San Saba but from a most unlikely source, his prosecutor.

Linden had visited Ogle at least once in Huntsville and used his influence to assist him with a pardon.

April is National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month

Submitted by Doug Suggs, President of the San Saba County Child Welfare Board

April is National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month; and it is annually declared so by the State of Texas and local governments. The San Saba County Child Welfare Board asks that everyone join us on Friday, April 6th, for "Go Blue Day" by wearing anything of the color blue in recognition of the universal problem of child abuse.

That day, there will be activities at schools in Cherokee and Richland Springs, while arrangements for San Saba will be later in the month. Cherokee will have promotional items at the Elementary school and will release balloons at the football field at 3:00 p.m. Friday. Richland Springs will be doing the same (with the exception of releasing balloons) at lunch time for the Elementary school.
