The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Those stemmed from the late war and Reconstruction, Indian warfare, Cattleindustry conflict, outlaw activity, community feuds, agrarian discontent and political turmoil. One disorder fed another, and a distinct regional style of violent behavior arose. During that time the feudal code of brotherhood was: “You kill my brother and I’ll kill you.” This mentality or “folk justice” was an accepted life-style, especially for Texans who embraced a mystique of violence.

County Judge’s Update

It is widely accepted, I might go as far as to say undisputed, that time and effort spent teaching youth yields the greatest benefits for both the youth and the community. We are privileged to have Neil Alexander and his work as Extension Agent, but we certainly feel the vacancy that Melanie Potter’s departure has created. We hope that the A&M Extension Service can soon fill her position.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Jonathan Lord and Nick Taylor, two young men who stepped up to help their hometown of Richland Springs. There were many others helping, but too often we don’t see the younger generations stepping up. Jonathan continued their mission with the advice of his pastor, Bro Sam, and arranged for management of donated funds.

Dove Project Presentation at Fellowship of Christian Women

By Sharon Hayes

Ladies at the First United Methodist Church in San Saba are making plans for a Summer Picnic Luncheon next Thursday, June 28th in the downstairs fellowship hall. We give you a special invitation to come at 11:30 a.m. and fellowship with us around the tables. Our ladies in their 50’s will be treated this month, as well as guests, and they do not have to bring food. Think about some cold foods that could possibly be special at a picnic, and bring to share around the serving tables. A nursery can be available for preschoolers only, if you phone Sharon Hayes in advance, for arrangements to be made. Please remember to bring foods for your children, if you want them to eat during the luncheon time.
