  • Belcher, Bob.jpg Politics?

    Our recent runoff election — which I’ll get to in a bit — set my mind flashing back to a whirlwind of “electoral memories” from my years in various newsrooms across the country the last 30 years

  • Jacobs, Janet.jpg Old pictures require imagination

    I adore old photos. You know the ones, black and white, typically in some long-gone studio with formal poses and stern faces.

  • McClanahan, Camille new.jpg CAMILLE'S CORNER: New beginnings

    When a call came from out of the blue a little more than a month ago, my first two words in response were “Huh? What?” Basically, I couldn’t think of anything else to say. And for people who know me, that in itself is saying a whole lot! I am rarely speechless.

  • 5-30 Sheehan Oliver.jpg Flood inspires thoughts

    I was at the Office of Emergency Management meeting on Monday to see a Declaration of Disaster approved by Navarro County commissioners and the first thing that struck me was, ‘hang on, I’m in Texas, not England,’ how has this happened? We are used to it in England, a bit of torrential rain here, a few flash floods there. But I never thought I would see it here. Texas is hot. Texas is dry. At least that is the general consensus.

  • Belcher, Bob.jpg Hmmm ...

    This is a “desk clearing” week for me.
    I’m sure you’ve had them. Get everything caught up, cleaned up, passed out, pigeon-holed and then take what’s left and slide it all into a desk drawer for another day.

  • Belcher, Bob.jpg BELCHER: Rick’s right

    It’s not too often that I say this — Rick Perry is right.
    It’s not because I’m a big Perry fan — it’s because his idea to strongly consider “computerizing” school instructional material could be a great idea.

  • Jacobs, Janet.jpg JACOBS: A rose by any other name ...

    I found out last weekend that one of my cousins intends to name her soon-to-be daughter “Avi.” Her husband is an amateur airplane pilot, if that explains things.
    So when the Social Security Administration announced this week that Isabella was the number one name in the nation and the state of Texas last year, I thought “Well, Avi is at least unusual.”
