Beautiful tortoiseshell kitten. Persy is a three-month old kitten that was rescued off the street and brought to Second Chance - Mason Animal Rescue.

What do you think would happen, just hypothetically, if all the dairy cows and all the chickens that live on farms in the United States were suddenly kicked out to fend for themselves? I’ll tell you exactly what would happen – most of them would die within a week, and the rest would follow in short order.

I have a bad habit of eating fast. This comes from a life of “GRAZERS!” These folks are really quick with their forks. They can reach long distance and stab food off your plate. They may make a comment at times while they transfer food from your plate to their mouth, “You won’t eat all that!” Too, I refrain from sitting near anyone that is known to me to be a “GRAZER!” Then, I guard my food with my full body.

I am thinking that every kid wondered how he came about in this world at the ancient age o ...

The hot and dry summer days seem to be back with us and even the start of the new school year will not yet bring us fall weather here in Central Texas. Our big concern in Mason is to strongly encourage everyone to comply with our water restrictions and reduce their landscape watering.

Sunday’s Sing-A-Long service was a great hit with all of the special music and congregation participation. I will just give you a small idea of the contents of the service. This was a combination service with the Trinity Church people attending. It is always great when we can get together for fellowship. We started with the singing of “Great is Thy Faithfulness”.

A dear and amazing soul went home to heaven last week, and she will be deeply missed. Jane Hoerster was the local “wise woman” when it came to genealogies and Mason County history. She was a delight to know, and when she could no longer be here in the Archives Room, our days weren’t quite as lively or interesting.
