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.

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”.

Letter to the Editor: Thanks to Greenfield and Finkenauer

Dear Editor, We had the privilege today, Sunday, October 25th, of hosting Senate candidate Teresa Greenfield, at our farm to view the damage from the August 10th derecho. We also need to acknowledge Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer who visited our farm last Monday. Knowing that we had already voted for them by absentee ballot, they still insisted with our consent to see how we and our rural neighbors were recovering and if they could be of any assistance.

Letter to the Editor: Vote for Accountability, Integrity, and Common Sense

Dear EditorI have been following the lead-up to the 2020 election and there are some things that have become apparent among our local candidates running for statehouse. While many in our society are becoming polarized in their political views I still feel there are some core values and attributes that we can all agree on when deciding our elected officials.

Just a Speck

I am one of the lucky few that live outside the city limits. I live down a country road where chances are if you've lived here long enough, you'll hit a deer, or a deer will hit you. Don't laugh, I was t-boned by one. The downside is that you go through tires more frequently than the rest of the population, which reminds me I need to make another trip to John's Tire before winter hits.
