Take time out to remember
If you are off work or out of school Monday, I encourage you to take part in some or all of the MLK day celebrations.
One of my favorite assignments all year (one of the few for which I volunteer) is attending the oratory contest on Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the MLK Community Center.
A nation big on words
We Americans are a wordy bunch, particularly after election to public office.
At all levels of government, officials gain experience quickly in “proclaiming,” whether or not they’re any good at all in framing laws.
Cherish each day
This past Monday dawned clear and bright.
We got a very nice, and very newsy, letter this past week from a dear Corsicana friend, Ronda Stutts. It was good to hear about some of our other friends who either worked or frequented Max’s and The Other Place. Ronda was my bartender and babysitter (while Gayla shopped) at TOP for many years. My brother-in-law, Joe Hubbard, thought he was in charge but everyone knew it was really Ronda!
The power of prayer
It is often our last resort, the final step in a hopeless situation. We refer to it with such phrases as “he doesn’t have a prayer,” or “there is nothing left to do but pray.” But it is perhaps the most important and distinguishing characteristic of our humanity.
Matters of disagreement
A dozen people — maybe more — have laid claim to the admonition we’ve all heard many times. For all I know, it may have first been stated by Emily Post, Amy Vanderbilt, Miss Manners or Little Miss Muffett. Anyway, it is well-worn: “We can disagree without being disagreeable.”
Well, that’s just ducky..
To say that Duck Commander and the Duck Dynasty phenomenon has become a true dynasty of commercialism is a gross understatement
Catching up after the holidays
While it was wonderful having a short break from work during the holidays, it did not turn out to be what we’d expected.
Letters to the Editor 1/4/14
District Court, Court-At-Law Jury must report
To the Editor: I want to thank each citizen who has responded to jury service since I took the bench in 2009. Without your response and participation, the right that we are all guaranteed under our U.S. and Texas constitutions would not be able to be exercised.
If this New Year’s Celebration at Times Square follows the pattern set since 2005, just before the ball drops and we turn our calendars forward, someone will sing John Lennon’s classic song, “Imagine.”
