Dillo golfers place seventh at Regional

By Coach Ronnie Schulze

San Saba’s Dillo Golf team fought to a seventh place finish at the Boys’ Region 4 2-A Golf Tournament played at the Lozano Golf Complex in Corpus on April 25th and 26th. The Dillos shot their best two team scores of the year on a golf course that was more difficult than any previously played this season. The course was long with lots of sand, water, and wind.

Austin Cisneroz had his best score of the year on the last day firing a 79. The Dillos had a good year considering that they had little time to practice because they play several spring sports.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

“The wind is blowing again, the wind is blowing again”, so goes the song to suit this beautiful Sunday. I feel a little bit silly even mentioning the wind after seeing the pictures my deployed sent me of the massive towering cloud of sand that was bearing down on him and the base. He said the daylight disappeared and pitch dark descended. Apparently they have had several sandstorms lately. The last one was followed by a hailstorm. So no complaints other than the fact the last front that blew in brought my first sinus attack of the year. I am not believing that I am sick one month before school lets out. That is exciting news for all involved. Even more exciting is the fact my soldier son will be home within six weeks give or take a few days. Hoorah.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

A Rotten Day…

“Ya can’t fix stupid.” It’s a line tossed about daily with abandon.

In my case--and this is an admission made “frogthroated” and typed with shaky fingers--I plead guilty.

The sting is even greater when our judgment--in certain moments when efforts are squeezed to save a few bucks- -is sorely lacking, maybe totally absent. Sequentially, I “flubbed.” One would think I’d never traveled before….
