Parents of students in grades 7-12 are urged to sign drug test permission forms and return them to school as soon as possible.

The only way the school can test students with a urinalysis is with both student and parent permission. Contact the principal’s office if you need any further information. Help keep our students drug free!

Hill Country Naturalist

Whenever anyone in this part of Texas thinks of a disease of trees, or just thinks of trees dying, they always think of oak wilt. And with good reason. Oak wilt is probably the proximate cause of the death of more mature oak trees in the Hill Country than any cause, other than man.

But there is another fungal disease, called hypoxylon or hypoxylon canker (Hypoxylon atropunctatum) that infects and kills oaks. Both oak wilt and hypoxylon are caused by fungus, both cause a destruction of the vascular tissue of the trees. Red oaks are the most susceptible and quickest to die from both diseases.

That is about where the similarity ends. Oak wilt is a primary pathogen which means it can infect a perfectly healthy host. Hypoxylon is an opportunistic pathogen which means it is always or usually ever-present but only infects the host when the host is stressed.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

think, but I may be imagining that the early morning breeze has autumn’s feel about it. The afternoons still belong to summer and I see no break in that for some time. Recess for the kids is short, but their little cheeks come in all flushed and reddened by the heat and exercise. Once the cooler weather gets here they will want to stay outside longer, but school work calls them into the class.

I have about 8 people coming on the Washington trip in May, but I would like to have at least two more boys. That would make a room full of Coyote boys. I already have a full room of girls with at least one adult left over. I like to be a little more selective this late in the trip because I want the kids in a given room to get along. This is a fast paced trip that keeps us running hard all day long. Even we adults have to keep up with the tour guides. So if you have an 11-13 year-old, give me a call.
