What day is it again?

COVID messes with everything. Especially the calendar. I needed to get my car fixed as well as cover a photo op on the same day. I looked at my calendar, got the car ready, told the mechanic where it would be for pick up and prepared for the rest of my day. I had to get the bills ready to deliver this week, something I don't normally do anymore because of time.

Letter to the Editor: The Electoral College

The debate has started again as to whether the US Constitution should be amended in order to change the presidential election process.  Some promote eliminating the Electoral College in favor of a direct popular vote for president while others believe the Electoral College should remainunchanged.  Just as compromise solved the initial problems of the framers so it is that compromise can solve this problem.

Letter to the Editor: Heroes Among Us

Heroes Among UsSeveral months ago I wrote a public pulse about the “angels among us” who work in nursing homes and care centers.  I want to recognize another group of selfless people who are always willing to help.  When the funeral home or the police department or the ambulance service need extra equipment, muscle or extra hands, who you gonna call?  Not ghost busters.

Tolochko and Margo Tie the Knot

Face it. We're living in a world that is sometimes just crazy. I know, I know, it's not politically correct to say that something someone does, that you wouldn't do is crazy, but face it. There are just crazy people out there. Let's talk about Tolochko. He is a bodybuilder from Kazakhstan. I don't know a lot about Kazakhstan, nor do I really care to.

Letter to the Editor: Bruh, Can You Give Me a LYFT? The Case for Ridesharing

It's a more recent term in the layman's dictionary. When people hear the term "Ridesharing", they tend to think of Uber and Lyft. But Ridesharing is basically another form of Carpooling, but also applies to Bikes, Vans, and even Electric Scooters, and can also be done professionally for money. To participate in a Ridesharing Program, you need a Credit Card, a Debit Card, a Paypal or other E-Payment system account, a smart phone, or other portable device capable of connecting to the internet.

It's not news, but you can't get all you can eat chitterlings in Texas

If you've never been to Texas let me tell you a bit about H E B grocery stores. They are THE grocery store in Texas. Like everything they are huge. I'd guess they are probably the size of a Sam's Club, with mostly groceries in them. Like everywhere else, the stores are limiting disinfectants, miscelleaneous cleaning supplies, toilet paper and other things.

Our Patriotic Duty

The end of a long election day in the Auditor's Office I spent Tuesday working at the polls in one of the most beautiful [st]tings in the county, the courthouse. I worked alongside 4 other great people in the Eden, Harrison, Taylor Precinct. It's always fun to see my neighbors and friends come through the line. We had a bit of a treat with a delivery of donuts early on in the morning from a little gal that decided her mission was to spread a little happiness and cheer via some carb loaded sweetness.

Letter to the Editor: Biden/Harris wins Part 2

Editor:  Biden/Harris wins:It’s over, the election is already won.  No need for further campaigning, right?, it’s in the bag.  How can a braggadocious, insulting, egocentric, etc., etc. - buffoon win against all the headwinds of Academia, Hollywood, Pundits, opinion writers, main stream media, and overturn the “old order”.
