South County was blessed with another nice little rain shower
So far so good, the grass is really looking good and there’s an
extra little bounce in every ranchers step so far! Looks like it’s
going to be a good year.

The Donham Family sure had a great New Year holiday as they rang it in down at the Disneyland Resort. John and Katie had never been to Disneyland so they thought New Year’s would be a great time to introduce them to the enchanted land. They all had a great time. John enjoyed the rides the most while Katie took to trading pins with other traders throughout the parks. The whole family enjoyed the Bugs Life Adventure and Honey I Shrunk the Kids movie. If you’ve never seen either, don’t miss them if you’re ever there – they’re great! Denise’s favorite was Soarin’ Over California at the California Adventures Park (that’s my favorite too!). They got to see Disneyland all decked out for the holidays and got to see an extra special fireworks display for the New Year. Sounds like a great time to me!
Brandings are starting to take place all over South County now. Jo Ann Falsey branded her calves last Saturday. Some of those helping her out included: Brent Davis, Casey Sabin, Todd Sans, Robert Vanetti, Stan Pura, Jamie Eade and Tracie Eade. Tamra and Mattie Barrington happened to be in town visiting so they stopped by to help out and say hello to everyone. Judy Vierra came by to help out with the BBQ after. Rhett and Jacey were on hand and our boys and Rhett had a great time getting filthy dirty!
Billy Whitney and Adam Donati hosted a branding at the Topo Ranch White Corrals on Sunday. Besides the entire Mee Ranch and Topo Ranch crews, others on hand to help out included Todd Sans, Hec Hurley and Blake Teixeira. Once again, the boys went with Todd and came home dirtier than the day before!
The Lonoak Badgers 4-H Club held their monthly meeting last Monday at the Bitterwater Tully School. They again will be holding their annual Valentine’s Day Bake Sale on Feb. 14 at the Bitterwater Tully School. I’ll remind you as time gets closer.
Speaking of Bitterwater Tully School, we are trying to increase the enrollment at this great little school so we are now accepting applications for the 2003/2004 school year. If you know of anyone interested in attending a wonderful, two room school house with wonderful teachers, have them get in
touch with the school ASAP. Space is limited and is sure to fill up fast.
Robin Rist, who graciously volunteered her time to be the new photography leader for the 4-H club, held her first meeting last Saturday at the school.The kids had a great time as they learned how to take action shots.
Friday night, most of the 4-H club headed in to town for the monthly Skate Night at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds. As usual, they all had a great time.
Cowboy Church was held last Wednesday night at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds. Singer Mike Hammock of Nacodoches, Tex., was the guest. He was great.
The San Benito County Cattlemen’s Association will be holding their annual meeting next Thursday at the 101 Livestock Market. The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by speakers and lunch. Everyone is welcome. For more information you can contact Jeanie Cofield. Speaking of Jeanie, she is also busy coordinating the Cattlemen’s annual fundraiser. The date for that has been set for March 29 and it will be held at Bolado Park. Mark your calendars now for those two events.
Well, looks like the football season is down to the final four, I was glad to see the Bucs win like they did but was thoroughly disappointed to see the Raiders go on one more week (hopefully that’ll end next weekend though!).
I’m hoping to see the Bucs and the Titans in the Super Bowl, but only time will tell! Until next week, if you have any news you’d like to share, give me a call or e-mail me at [email protected]
