The Natural Food Web - How All Things are Interconnected

Most of us learned about our nutritional food pyramid in school, where we were advised to eat lots of the bottom layer (grains, cereals), slightly less fruits and vegetables, much less meat and fish, and only a little of the top of the pyramid - sweets. The food pyramid has recently been replaced with something called the "food plate," which shows what we should be eating in a kind of a pie chart (no pun intended!) superimposed on a plate.

In biology, the idea of a food pyramid has long been taught as having at its base - plants - and above that the herbivores which eat the plants, followed by the carnivores, which eat the herbivores. This is now considered much too simplified and it has also been replaced by what is called the food web.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

I guess you can say we have spent another month. I am trying to wrap my head a round the fact next week is April. I think I can speak for most teachers and say that these last two months are the hardest. We have this giant push to complete all the work required in time to review for our wonderful STAAR tests. I waffle between telling my students that they don’t need to worry about the tests; I just ask that they do the best they can, and then flip to enforcing the importance of the tests for the state. When you add the large number of activities that happen during those two months, you have a recipe for turmoil.

Bro. Russ Steel piled about 12 of us into the church van and we went to San Saba to watch The Last Supper. The production was superb and I’m so glad we went. I wish their disciples were louder, but the message was clear. Bro. Sam and the congregation of the First Baptist Church San Saba hit a home run.

Pat Edward Cavness

Pat Edward Cavness walked this earth for 75 years and four months, leaving behind much larger footprints than his size 10 shoes would suggest. The youngest of three children born to Damon Edward (“Bill”) Cavness and Bernice Parisher Cavness, Pat grew up in the small town of Cherokee, Texas, collecting a variety of life experiences that shaped the man he became. Cherokee was (and still is) a small town in San Saba County. All twelve grades of the school were housed in one building. Pat’s kids didn’t know he was joking when he bragged about graduating third in his class, until they found out there were only five students in his entire grade. Small as the Cherokee high school was, they played 11-man football when Pat was in school, and he played center — all 125 pounds of him. After graduating from high school in 1961, Pat moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin (UT), forming a lifelong attachment to his beloved Longhorns.
