The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

After the elections, the Ranger detachment was ordered away to the Mexican border. The Spanish-American War was raging on, and troubles were anticipated. McDonald and the detachment left without Neal and Perry. Neal had married a local girl from San Saba county and decided to settle down. Perry also decided to settle, at least for a while, in San Saba. After all, these men had lived on the land, rode through its splendid valleys, experienced the wide-open spaces and marveled at its beauty. There was a certain charm about the place which even the Mob had no authority to rule over. After working and living in the county so long and meeting so many people, the men were attracted to the place. Their presence was still needed.

Bend . . . and the new Bend General Store

By Donna Webb, Reporter

Recently I had the opportunity to meet Bret Cali, the new owner of The Bend General Store. As he talked about the changes and future plans for the store, including his travels and life experiences, I was immediately drawn to wanting to know more . . . about The General Store . . . about Bret . . . and Bend. I went to see that store and interview Bret to find out all the new happenings around town . . . Bret is excited about my upcoming visit . . . me . . . well, maybe!!

Now, don’t get me wrong . . . I was excited for Bret and the Bend population . . . I just wasn’t that excited about my first time to Bend! Yes, that’s right, I've never been to Bend even though I moved to Locker from the Dallas area about 16 years ago.
