Purple and Gold Dillos pluck Johnson City Eagles 48-2

By Coach Ronnie Schulze

The San Saba Purple Team and Gold Team combined this week to destroy the Johnson City 8th Grade Eagles by a score of 48-2 in Johnson City this past Thursday evening. It was total domination by the Dillos.

San Saba kicked to Johnson City to begin the game. Big defensive plays by Mark Maxcey and Rene Guerrero pinned the Eagles deep in their own end of the field. Johnson City punted; it was very short and San Saba took over on the Eagle 20. Maxcey ran for 7. Maxcey reversed field the next play and scored from 13 yards. Tegen Saiz ran in the P.A.T. 8-0 Dillos. Jesus Betancourt, Aiden Martinez, Christian Ramirez, Daylon Smith, Dillon Ware, Ivan Canedo, Brenden McCall and Hayden Reeves paved the way.

San Saba kicked to the Eagles. After two plays, Jesus Betancourt caused a fumble recovered by Tegen Saiz. Saiz ran for 5. Mark Maxcey found pay dirt on a 30-yard run. A pass from Saiz to Tyler Johnson got 2 points. 16-0 Dillos.

A Pilgrimage! Pumpkins and More! October and the Garden Club News

By Anne H. Vincent

Ten Garden Club members traveled to Austin to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on Tuesday, October 2nd, for the annual Garden Club pilgrimage. President Dianna Furlan and nine others enjoyed the incredible weather and the beautiful landscapes and flowers of the famous research center A Pilgrimage! Pumpkins and More! October and the Garden Club News By Anne H. Vincent originally established by former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson.

Mrs. Johnson, whose passion for wildflowers in Texas and throughout the United States, desired to ensure the natural beauty of highways and natural areas of the U.S. at a time when pesticides and herbicides were causing calamitous damage to the flora and fauna of the country. Originally 45 acres, the Wildflower Center now encompasses more than 200 wild acres of the Edwards Plateau Aquifer Recharge area near Slaughter Lane and south MoPak Loop 1 in southwest Austin.

Hill Country Naturalist

What Happened to All the Critters I Used to See?

Growing up in the country in the Permian Basin between Lubbock and Midland, I spent a lot of time roaming the pastures around our house, although much of it was being plowed up to make new cotton fields back then. But the time I spent in the mesquite/ shinnery/short grass prairie was so much fun because of all of the critters I could see.

I lived away from Texas for a number of years, but when I returned 19 years ago, I was saddened to find that many of the critters I enjoyed as a boy have become much less common. Some are even quite scarce and becoming more so.

Mary Aline Moore

Mary Aline Moore, age 92, of North Salt Lake, Utah, formerly of San Saba, passed away in North Salt Lake, Utah on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Mary was born in Houston, Texas on May 14, 1926 to Hugh Gaden Johnson and Ruth (Gunter) Johnson. Mary attended San Saba High School. She married Alex Herbert Moore on February 2, 1946 in San Saba, Texas. Mary was the mother of two children, homemaker, and Scout Den Mother. She also worked as a mortgage broker, real estate broker, and antique dealer. Mary was a member of the Southside Church of Christ in Jacksonville, Texas. After her husband passed away, Mary, at the age of 85, made the hard decision to move from her lifelong home of Texas to Utah to be by her family. It was our pleasure and a pure blessing to have had her close for the last 6 years of her life. She is survived by her nephew, Michael E. Johnson and wife, Wendy, of North Salt Lake, Utah; and two grand-nephews: Anthon and Jesse Johnson of North Salt Lake, Utah.
