Fellowship of Christian Women to hold luncheon April 26th

Celebrating 40 Years…1978-2018

By Sharon Hayes

It is time to Rejoice! Remember! And Celebrate! the past 40 years.

Fellowship of Christian Women’s Luncheon began in 1978 and only missed a few meetings due to ice on our highways.

Ladies of our county gather in church fellowship halls on the 4th Thursday of every month for lunch and inspirational speakers.

This month we are suggesting “Casseroles and Veggies” for our meal, and ladies in their 30’s will be treated and do not have to bring food to share around the serving tables.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

We had to dig out the generator Friday evening thanks to the tremendous w in ds that blew in from the northwest. My house shook several times after a particularly strong gust. Strangely enough, very few of the big dead braches in our tree out front lost dead limbs. I was hoping we could have a little judicious pruning without having to climb a ladder, but no such luck. As strong as the winds were, they didn’t blow my lawn chairs around or my plastic watering can. It was just strange. However, the winds were strong enough to knock out the power for about seven hours. I tried out my new cob lanterns, and they work just fine. I had three, but one was enough to light the main room. The power came back on around 4:30 a.m.

Most of the folks around had no rain from this storm. The little corridor around me and a little east of here did get some rain and hail, but nothing was very damaging or particularly satisfying. We definitely need some rain around here.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury

Give Smiles a Try…

Songs are often slathered in over-simplification. We’ve generally gone along with the musical proclamation that our smiles trigger the rest of the world to smile with us.

Wait a minute. The world ignores, remaining ambivalent, whether we’re smiling or not.

This is not to say there is not value in smiles; they are worthwhile if they do nothing more than brighten a few lives in our own little world. Even slight grins help, and they buy a few seconds while we’re trying to think what to say next….

News From Cherokee ISD

After another weekend of chilly weather, we are pleased with the warmer spring like weather we are having this week. Now if only that wind would die down, it would be perfect! The weather brings great opportunities for learning. Some of the classes have been enjoying some outdoor classroom time. At home, this is a perfect way to motivate students to do their homework or reading. Encourage them to go outside to complete their work. A change of scenery can be all it takes sometimes to engage students.

Our track teams have been busy this week as our junior high ran in their district meet this Monday and our high school runners will be competing at the area meet Thursday. We are so proud to say that most of our runners qualified for area! Many of our staff will be attending the meet to help out, so we will have an early release at noon on Thursday and no school at all on Friday.

Local Club funds two Scholarships

By Anne H. Vincent

The San Saba Garden Club is funding two new scholarships for fortunate graduating San Saba High School Seniors this spring.

The Club, which has historically always helped with scholarships given by the Texas District V Garden Clubs, will fund two special San Saba scholarships this year. The San Saba community through its support of the Garden Club and its Pumpkin Sale in the fall.

The Hunter Stew in November, a garage sale in the spring and other projects like the current Plant Sale, has allowed the Club to be able to fund two scholarships this spring and more possible scholarships in the future.
