Lady Dillo Basketball Report

The Lady Dillos’ basketball season is going strong as they picked up three more wins before the Thanksgiving break. Up first, the Lady Coyotes of Richland Springs visited Armadillo Arena. The Lady Dillos played tough defense and made it difficult for Richland to find any type of rhythm on offense. Offensively, the Lady Dillos were able to find holes in their zone and attack. The Lady Dillos defeated Richland by a final score of 55-13.

Next, the Lady Dillos hosted the Lometa Lady Hornets. From the beginning, the Lady Dillos were able to use their speed and push the ball in transition. This led to some easy scoring opportunities. The Lady Dillos full court pressure also caused several turnovers for Lometa. The Lady Dillos defeated the Lady Hornets 73-14.

Paul Christopher Karrais

Paul Christopher Karrais, prominent machinist for Karrais Machine and Tool died Saturday morning November 24th in the early hours. He was 61 years old.

Paul Christopher Karris was born on a cold rainy day on November 10th 1957 to Paul Franz Karrais and Jaqueline Small Karrais. Soft spoken and obsessive by nature Paul could build anything he put his mind to. He was a rancher, caregiver, machinist, brother and a son. Paul was also someone who loved to see what was always on the other side of the fence. Traveling every chance he could get; meeting new people along the way.

Paul clung to the notion that life was not a series of meaningless accidents or coincidence rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan.

2018 Annual Angels Unaware Gifts

This is your call to help make Christmas a little better for some children in need by supporting the 2018 Angels Unaware program sponsored by the San Saba County Child Welfare Board (CWB). Shortly after Thanksgiving, members place the Elsie Millican Memorial Christmas tree in the atrium of the Arrowhead Bank building in San Saba decorated with little paper angel Christmas ornaments. Each ornament is numbered and has the age (up to sixth grade), gender, and sometimes the request of need of an anonymous child. A gift price limit of $35.00 was set to make this giving equitable and affordable.

Still having some cool mornings, but up in the day it warms up, no rain. Have had several mornings of heavy frost.

People are gathering what pecan crop they have. It seems the pecans are not filled out as good as they could be. The pecan show is in the process; volunteers are busy shelling the pecans to put in the show.

Leon Eckhoff reported that he and Mebbie spent Thanksgiving in Hawley with son, Robbie, Amy and sons, Ethan and Ory. Leon and Robbie were in Kentucky last week attending the Rambouillet sheep show. Robbie is the secretary and has to attend all the shows.

Jane Clark reported on all of the Thanksgiving news of this past week.

Hill Country Naturalist

I have written before about the Earth's natural hydrologic cycle and energy transfer. Most folks know that water evaporates from the oceans, moves over land and rains, the rain either runs off the land into rivers and back to the ocean or soaks into the soil where it either cycles through vegetation or seeps into water tables and aquifers, but it eventually all returns to the oceans.
