The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

The Disaster Relief Committee has officially completed the use of the donated monies. According to the post I saw some 26 homes were assisted in their repairs. I have no doubt more could have been done if there had been more money, but that is a moot point. I know there are 26 blessed families who have new windows and a few also have had roof repairs. Those folks who had insurance are wading their way through delays and overworked vendors. The most complaints I have heard are the roofers. They are getting it done; it is just taking a bit longer than expected. I want to send out a hearty thank you to the disaster committee for their hard work and compassion.

Russ and I drove into Brownwood today to pick up some supplies. This drought and heat is taking a horrible toll on the trees in this area. We have quite a large clean up to do on storm damaged trees, but I am very much afraid that we are going to lose most of the trees on the top of our hill.

The theme of the reunion this year was 'Welcome to the Walker Playhouse'.

Camp Billy Gibbons - San Saba County’s hidden gem for Boy Scouts

By Donna Webb, Reporter

Recently, I found a hidden gem in San Saba County. It took me awhile that day. . . after about 15 miles down a dirt/rock road (CR 360) off Hwy 190 just past Richland Springs. Some residents already know about it; some may have forgotten about it, while others may not have a clue.The hidden gem is Camp Billy Gibbons! Yes, the Boy Scout camp is really a gem. . . you see, I know because I was invited to see it and watch some of the Scouts in action.
