News From Cherokee ISD

By Kari Owen

Last week was a bit of a “calm before the storm” kind of week. This week we are testing, prepping for testing, and being spoiled by our PTC and community for Teacher Appreciation week!

In sports news, the golf season has ended. Although our lone golfer, Blaize Lopez, didn’t make it to state, he did advance all the way to regionals and he improved his 2 day total by 12 strokes. According to Coach Garcia he had “a great season in all, qualifying for the regional tournament for the second year in a row.”

Many come together for annual Spring Cleanup

By Sharon O'Neill

April 14th completed another successful city-wide annual cleanup for Keep San Saba Beautiful (KSSB) and their “Don’t Mess With Texas” and Keep America Beautiful “Great American Cleanup” partners. Cleanup week started off with the Cub Scout cleanup of Risien Park on Monday. Then Oscar the Grouch (Patty Shaw and Gale Ivy) visited San Saba Elementary and Middle School students on Thursday and Friday. Saturday ended the week with the help of 40 volunteers who braved the wind and cold temperature.

Nine truck and six trailer loads of trash and debris were collected during the 3 hour cleanup. Volunteers picked up approximately 50 bags of litter along the highways entering town, along city streets and in the parks. The remainder of trash collected was picked up at homes by City employees and brought out to the transfer site by County residents who took advantage of the FREE cleanup day drop-off.

Hostesses, Becky Whitley, Beth Griess, Leanne Pollock, Gail Bruner, Nancy Van Etten and President Dianna Furlan welcomed members and club guests to hear Marlene Gillman of Killeen, Texas, and the Temple Garden Club present interesting information on "Pollinators and Welcoming them into Our Gardens."

Ms. Gillman explained that the three most popular, beautiful, and needed pollinators are hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. All three are always welcome but can be threatened as in the case of butterflies and bees.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

My Mother’s Potato Salad…

Soon after the inception of this column more than 15 years ago, I committed to sharing noteworthy recipes with readers from time to time. A dozen weeks into my writing regimen, I shared a cinnamon toast recipe.

It elicited no response- -favorable or otherwise--so I have been reluctant to make culinary suggestions--until now. I expect no drumrolls, but I do admit “chest-swelling” with the mere mention of my saintly mother’s potato salad.
