I read with much interest the article about Pauline Dillard and 105 years of life. I was impressed by her advice “live your own life, and live it as full as possible and decently. I am afraid many people get the first part but not the decently part. This is very good and simple advice for us all. May she have years of living as full as possible.

“BIG” thank you
To the residents of Refugio County. We appreciate your participation in the rabies drive held in Refugio County this spring. There were a total of 162 dogs and cats vaccinated in Autwell, Tivoli, Bayside, Woodsboro and Refugio.
A “big” thank you to all the city and county employees (and spouses) who so graciously coordinated our dates, advertised, opened your facilities, and gave up a Saturday to help us. We couldn’t provide services for your pets without your volunteers who come out to help us!
Please watch for our advertisements for next year’s drive. It’s good to see all of you each year!
Lois Cochran, DVM,
Thanks for 40 years of service

The Refugio Little League would like to give their appreciation to all the boys and girls that participated in this years fundraiser.
Lady Cats eye state
The taste of victory for the Refugio Lady Cats Softball team is twice as sweet this year, not simply because winning is a tradition at Refugio High School; but because these young ladies play for the mere love of the sport.
Publicity, fan attendance and school recognition are often overshadowed. The Refugio Lady Cats have quietly and humbly taken the field for the majority of their season to a handful of fans, no cheerleaders, low faculty attendance, no concession building, no rest room facilities, antiquated spectator stands and more often than not, no publicity.
Yet, these young ladies have played with the heart, soul and determination that embodies the very essence of the “Fighting Bobcat Spirit” to obtain their spot in the Regional Finals and one game away from the State Softball Tournament something no other athletic team has accomplished this year and further than any other softball team in RHS history.
It is easy to compete with state-of-the-art facilities, more coaches than sense, overwhelming fan support, constant media attention and the full and complete involvement of your student body and administration, but it is much tougher to compete in a sport that is not so popular or recognized.
It is obvious that the Refugio Lady Cats play because they simply love the game; and we can all learn a valuable lesson in perseverance from each of them-to win when no one is watching is tantamount to doing the right thing when no one is looking.
Ladies, please know that the reward you reap whether you win or lose Thursday night, lies in the fact that you have accomplished by mere “grit and stamina” that which no one else has; and know that you have done so in the true spirit of our school motto – “Not Without Pride!”
