Rainwater Collection and Conservation subject of Rotary Club's noon meeting

"And I wonder, still I wonder . . . Who'll stop the rain?”

Submitted by Mike Thomas

Haven’t the rains of the past few weeks been great? Yards and fields are green with water in the tanks.

Now remember six moths ago: a completely different picture with a drought reminiscent of eight years ago.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could “bottle up” some of the extra rain water and hold it till we really need it down the road?

Coyote Pride

The annual Book Fair, Open House, and FAFSA orientation were all well-attended and were great opportunities for parent involvement. Kira Hobbs won a $200 scholarship at the FAFSA orientation and financial aid presentation by Ronny Barnes from Panhandle-Plains.

The annual Book Fair was again the center of attention in the Wayne Gossett Memorial Library. Librarian Valerie Gossett thanks all parents who supported the library’s annual fundraiser. Mrs. Gossett would like to thank everyone for making the Book Fair an overwhelming success again this year. The library should receive around $600 worth of new books thanks to everyone’s purchases.

San Saba Garden Club Yard of the Month Fall Decorating Challenge

By Dianna Furlan - San Saba Garden Club - Yard of the Month, Committee Chair

Have you noticed the change in the air, the leaves changing, and the pumpkins showing up on door stoops? Last year, the San Saba Garden Club promoted the first Annual Business Decorating Challenge. This year, we are challenging the community to participate in the same type of decorating on a homeowner level.

Members of the San Saba Garden Club - Yard of the Month committee will drive the neighborhoods to select a yard decorated in all things fall! It seems that several homeowners on Commerce, Dry and Storey Streets have already gotten into the swing of the fall season. It's such a pleasure and joy to see the decorations, creativity and care that our homeowners demonstrate.

A Whaco Waco Call

Hello my San Saba friends, so nice to see you! Well, I can’t really see you, I don’t have spy equipment and while I am great at bugging the parentals…I have no idea how to bug a newspaper column and no, I haven’t had a recent head injury…just went mind word walking with you for a moment.

Did you know I really enjoy being a dachshund…at least the cute, cuddly, adorable part, anyway…the long pencil with short stubby legs look…sometimes not so much. The truth is I get by on my looks and I am fully aware of it, use it to my benefit and will not apologize for it. Hey, if I am able to reduce my dad to mush, get what I want from him…I know I have been given a gift!
