The Bend News

By Jo Price

Here we are starting July and the hot dry weather is still upon us.

There are some who are saying it will rain on the 4th of July and we certainly hope that is true. Speaking of the 4th, plan to attend some of the fireworks that will be around this area, instead of wasting your time and money on buying fireworks. It will be much safer and much less danger of starting a fire in the dry pastures. Just plan on having a safer and fun 4th.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Although I will not here to see the photos of the 4th of July celebrations, I know everyone is going to have a splendiferous time. I expect the heat will be a factor, but it will be tolerated because of all the fun activities to be enjoyed around the area. Russ will enjoy the fireworks from the porch of the house, but he will not attend. I sincerely hope that the Howler’s Club has a rousingly successful event.

They have certainly worked hard enough these past months to get everyone ready.

The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Those stemmed from the late war and Reconstruction, Indian warfare, Cattleindustry conflict, outlaw activity, community feuds, agrarian discontent and political turmoil. One disorder fed another, and a distinct regional style of violent behavior arose. During that time the feudal code of brotherhood was: “You kill my brother and I’ll kill you.” This mentality or “folk justice” was an accepted life-style, especially for Texans who embraced a mystique of violence.
