DSHS promotes awareness of harmful bacteria in coastal waters

Warm weather in Texas brings a higher risk of marine water-related infections, including those caused by the Vibrio bacteria which are naturally found in coastal water. Most infections occur between May and October, when the warmer water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico promote the growth of these bacteria. Texas has averaged 90 Vibrio infections per year for the last 10 years.

People can become ill after eating raw or undercooked contaminated seafood, particularly oysters, or when a person has an open wound that is exposed to seawater. Illness due to eating raw or undercooked seafood usually includes gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, fever, and chills.

Texas firefighters head to California to help fight deadly wildfires

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Some 98 firefighters from 29 Texas fire departments in 20 counties will head to California this week to fight wildfires that have burned more than 750,000 acres. The deployment is an activation of the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System (TIFMAS) for wildfire suppression in Texas and beyond.

“It’s about neighbors helping neighbors,” said Tom Boggus, Texas A&M Forest Service director. “We call TIFMAS our ‘surge capacity’ for Texas. Guess this time their reach is a bit farther away but we hope to make a big impact in people’s lives.”

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

VBS is here! The first night was a little short on kids, but did we ever have a great group of adults and older students to make all systems go. My personal helpers were Lanie and Piper. By the time we had learned the opening song, taught four separate classes and finished off on the grand finale, we were all exhausted.

Debbie Phelan had a great group of youth helping her with the crafts. I have to admit crafts were always my favorite part of VBS. Our trusty leader was Karla Steele, and she kept us all on track. We are hoping for a much larger group of kids tomorrow night. Johnnie and Lynn Reeves, Mrs. Kubin, Kay McKee and a host of other excellent teachers and helpers are making this a fun-filled blast of the gospel. Whether we have 10 or 100 we are excited to present the saving message of the Bible. I hope you were one of the parents that sent your children to this once a year experience.

Can We Save Our Hill Country Water for Future Generations?

What got me to thinking about this topic, again, was an article I found in the Cynthia and George Mitchell blog. The article was written by Katherine Romans, the very able and knowledgeable Executive Director of the Hill Country Alliance.

Donald D. Burnham

Don Burnham, age 91, of San Saba, Texas passed away surrounded by his family, in San Saba, Texas on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Don was born on July 8, 1927 in Brownwood, Texas to Leslie D. Burnham and Myrtle (Lane.) Don was raised in San Saba County. As a young man of 17, he left high school to serve in the Navy during WWII. Upon returning from the service he finished his education. He then began farming and ranching until the drought forced him to take a job in an aircraft plant. But, when the first substantial rain finally came, Don returned to what he loved the most—working the land where he grew up. He married Martha Rae Owen in 1957 and continued this country way of life for over 60 years. They shared this legacy with their children and grandchildren who are now continuing a tradition spanning five generations. It’s only befitting that he be buried on the very land that sustained his life.

Billie Louise (Crow) Williams

Louise Williams, 93, of San Saba died Tuesday, July 31, 2018 in Brownwood following a year's struggle to regain her mobility from a broken hip. A determined native Texan, she simply could not overcome a recent diagnosis of bone cancer. A private graveside service was held Thursday at San Saba Oddfellows Cemetery where she now lies adjacent to her late husband, Joy Royce Williams. She was born on March 7, 1925 in Graham, Texas. Her parents were Samuel D. Crow and Bana Mae (Simmons) Crow, and she spent much of her formative years during the Great Depression on Crow Mountain and Rock Creek in southern Young County with her older sister, Dorothy Mae, and younger brother, Joe Donald, on a place to which their grandfather, a founder of the Texas & Southwest Cattle Raisers Association, had returned after being an early Texas trail driver.
