CTEC Operation Round-Up grants awarded to organizations, church and local family

Recently, the CTEC Operation Round-Up Board of Directors approved several grants for local community organizations, as well as a family in need. A $3,000 grant was awarded to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fredericksburg, which provides simple, decent and affordable housing for people in need. Their goal is to eliminate substandard housing by building and promoting high quality, affordable housing. The non-profit program has started construction on house #17, which is their first outside of the city limits.

Another grant, in the amount of $2,00, was gifted to the Friends of the Kingsland Library. With a large population over the age of 65 in the Kingsland area, the Friends of the Kingsland Library want to ensure there is a vast selection of large print books available for this portion of the community. This contribution offsets the amount needed to purchase these large print books and in turn invest in the enrichment of these seniors' lives.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Saturday was another sad day for our Richland Springs community. Shirley Benton was laid to rest at the Cowboy Cemetery.

Although a sad occasion for her loving family, I have no doubt she was glad to be with her sweet Jerry. I first met Shirley in the spring of 2005. The cement trucks rolled up the hill to pour my foundation, and there to meet them was an odd assortment of people who came to share the task of smoothing and tamping. They did such a great job that Tim Brockman suggested that I stain my floors. Throughout the day I listened to the friendly banter and enjoyed the sound of Shirley’s laughter. That group of people were my first introduction to the good folks of Richland Springs. Since then Shirley and I have crossed paths many times, and she will always hold a special place in my heart. She was a feisty but loveable lady.

Highlights of Harkeyville

By D. Harkey

This is supposing that you made it through Super Bowl Sunday with little distress and no mishap. Gene Craig and this humble scribe watched the game and festivities down at the Craig Brothers' abode on the banks of the Colorado just this side of the Bend. Getting down to the Bend a bit early gave me time to take a brief pass by the Bend General Store. Cali is about done with the painting job and the Red with white trim sure stands out. We also visited with a couple from Lampassas that knew Cali from his General Store in Llano. I think the husband might be the wine-maker at the vineyardwinery in Nix. Seems like the name of the enterprise is Stone Ledge Vineyard and Winery; a fitting name for that area.
