By Art Dlugach SALADO—Holden Simpson fired three touchdown passes, the Jacket running game was superb, and so was the defense in a 34-13 whipping of Salado, October 3. The victory for Llano (2-4) broke a three-game losing streak.

Lance Reven ran for a score in the third, and Airon Layton caught a Simpson aer ...

The first play from scrimmage was about as bad as it could be, and it established the personality of a 38-0 halftime lead for San Angelo Lake View on the Jackets’ Homecoming Night.

Antho ...

Legends have arisen with idyllic pictures of how the beasts and the birds were susceptible to the charm of St. Francis’ gentle ways, how they entered into companionship with him and often felt protected by him. Saint Francis of Assisi was the Founder of the Franciscan Order of Priests and Brothers.

There’s a high calling in life that few seem to desire: peacemaking. But what does a peacemaker do? A peacemaker cuts through the negative information that frequently floats around dividing people who ought to love one another. It’s not easy to be a peacemaker because this work is contrary to our nature, yet Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9). Peacemakers are positive people who rise above the charges and counter charges that often dominate conversations. A pe ...
