Junior Lady Dillos win 2017 Winter Warmup Shootout

The 5th/6th Grade Junior Lady Dillos (3-0) traveled to Ballinger, Texas on Saturday December 16 to take part in their first tournament of the year and returned home with the 2017 Winter Warmup Shootout Championship. The Lady Dillos participated in the 6th grade girls division. The Lady Dillos received a bye in the first round of the tournament and would face the Jim Ned Lady Indians in the quarterfinal round of the tournament to set up a highly anticipated match up of what would turn out to be the top teams in the tournament. The Lady Dillos would take a 6-1 lead at the end of the first quarter and a 6 point second quarter by Jenna Lambert would push the lead to 15-3 at the half. The Lady Dillos would shut out the Lady Indians in the second half and pick up their first win of the season by a score of 23-3.

The Effects of European Man on the Ecology of the Hill Country

A few weeks ago I discussed what the Hill Country Looked like before European man arrived in the early 1800s. Today I want to discuss what changes Europeans caused in the ecology of the Hill Country.

Prior to 1800, Texas was populated mainly by Native Americans with only a very few early settlers, mainly Spanish in South Texas. The Native Americans certainly had some effects on the Hill Country ecology. They started, intentionally or accidentally, grass fires, hunted many wild animals and cultivated a few small farms here and there. But their effects on the landscape were relatively minor, because of their relatively small numbers and their rather subsistence lifestyle.

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME 1

By Ross J. Cox, Sr.

There were no secrets in the community, and it was clear the Rangers were closing in on the Mob.

As a result, some of its membership quietly left the county. Like Sullivan, Mc- Donald had slowly acquired respect from honest and concerned citizens.
