Central Texas Farm Credit to return $6.5 million to customers

Central Texas Farm Credit customers will receive a record $6.5 million refund in March 2019, thanks to the rural financing cooperative’s strong financial results in 2018.

As a borrower-owned coop, Central Texas Farm Credit keeps only the earnings it needs for growth and stability, and returns the rest to its members through its patronage program. Patronage refunds lower customers’ borrowing costs by giving back a portion of the interest they paid on their loans.

The Bend News

Missed the deadline for the news last week, so will try to catch up on all the happenings around the Bend.

The weather has been up and down. First, there were really cold days of early part of last week and then nice warm days for the last few days.

Still, very cold at night, but when the sun comes out it is very nice. There was even some light rain last week and more rain is forecast this next week.

Lee Matthews was admitted to the hospital suffering pneumonia. He thought he had a case of bad allergies. Keep him on your prayer list.

It seems like everyone is having medical problems around the Bend.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

I don’t know much about the Mormon Church, but I’ve always viewed most adherents as being generous with both their gifts and their time.

They number some 15 million worldwide, and in Utah--where about two million of three million citizens are Mormons--there’s considerable “co-mingling” of issues at both the state house and the church house. (Since Utah attained statehood in 1896, all of its governors--save two--have been Mormons.)

Most “church news” is spawned during semi-annual meetings, but a surprising new law from the state house kicked in on January 1. Permissible blood alcohol content for drivers is now 0.05 percent, the lowest of any state. This law goes against the grain of many drivers, so it might be well-noted that Utahans in the legislature who pushed this bill may add “courageous” to their names….

The Richland Springs Report

Our beautiful break is over, and it’s time to get back to work. The San Saba County Stock Show and Youth Fair is this Thursday through Saturday. The kids are excited, but I am not ready.

Typically, we have multiple projects to bring to the show, but I must be falling down on the job because my classes are looking bleak when it comes to show material. Mr. Dennis has the show animals ready. My wishes are for everyone to show well and enjoy themselves.
