The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Editor’s Note: Part 37c of a continuing series.

In 1941, Vernon Thomas wrote his master thesis for the University of New Mexico, entitled “The History of Education in San Saba County.” Even at that late date, it was apparent that remnants of some Mob influence still lingered. Almost seven pages of his thesis were dedicated to the subject of Mob rule. One of the most remarkable entries said:

“...factors that delayed the developments of many San Saba County rural schools in the late nineties and in the early part of the present century were the result of mob rule....Even as late as 1925 school board members in one or two districts were always selected from those persons who were said to have been identified with mob rule....”

Ray Lubke reaches 50-year milestone for GM dealer

By Amanda Howell, Brady Standard-Herald

Hard work, loyalty and a genuine love for what you do in your chosen career are hard to come by these days. People's perspective and career ambitions can change at the drop of a hat, so when you find someone with the desire to stick with it, you give credit where credit is due.

After working for half a century as a GM dealer, a career that originated with his first business in Eden, Ray Lubke was recognized for 50 years of service to General Motors last Thursday. Members of the community attended a private ceremony and luncheon to witness the monumental event and share fond memories of Ray over the years.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Melted Coastal Dad

Hello beautiful San Saba souls! How in the world are you? The parentals and I had quite the adventure since last we spoke. We left the gently rolling hills, the lovely, quaint downtown beauty of home owned businesses and the quiet streets of San Saba to journey to the Houston area. Yep, drove from Viennese Waltz to crazy bone crushing mosh pit! Mom has more medical tests coming up and she wanted a trip home to see the kids before all that started again so off we went. I will discuss the million car march a bit later but for now say we were all excited about seeing family.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor and the good Folks of San Saba County

"Just the Facts". . . We have all heard Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet say this. . . "Just the Facts."

Well, most of you who know me, know that I have tended to "take the high road" to avoid controversy concerning my time at the local radio stations and especially after my retirement from them.

But, after some recent events and comments from friends and business associates, I feel it is time for "Just the Facts."
