San Saba School Spotlights

Thirty-three seniors graduated on Friday, May 25th at Armadillo Arena for San Saba High School. The ceremony was set to take place at Rogan Field and a terrible storm rolled in about 8:30 p.m. The ceremony was changed at 7:52 p.m. to Armadillo Arena. As many know, the storm was devastating and had a terrible effect on San Saba County, especially Richland Springs. It has been a tough couple of weeks. The graduation ceremony took place in Armadillo Arena but it was very tense as the storm rolled through San Saba County. All seniors in San Saba County have graduated and summer has started, but there is still much work to be done.

County Judge’s Update

Although the storm that devastated the City of Richland Springs and the surrounding unincorporated area was certainly a major disaster to our county it does not rise to the required affected area level for FEMA.

We have issued a Disaster Declaration Notice and request for assistance to the Governor’s office for all those affected by the storm. We are uncertain as to what aid the state is able to offer, but we hope to at least get access to SBA loans with their very low interest rates and long-term payback.

Letter to the Editor

It’s human nature to think that things won’t happen in your town. For those of us in San Saba County, especially Richland Springs, it’s also human nature to think that the storms will always go around us. It seems that every time there’s a good rain headed right toward our little town, it always splits and goes around us. It’s the stuff of lore from all the old timers around here.

When a massive historic storm had a bull’s eye right on Richland Springs two Friday’s ago, I think I can speak for many, that we were shocked to say the least. Fortunately, it is also human nature to help your neighbor in times of crisis. And help they did. The community of Richland Springs has so many people and organizations to thank. If you’ll grant us the indulgence of thanking them here, I’d be appreciative.
