On Aug. 3, Meyer Ranch celebrated its Grand Opening. Three people (aka the 3 Amigas), all members of Preserve Our Hill Country Environment, were not in a celebratory mood. They stationed themselves across the highway to inform the public that the Vulcan Quarry is not a done deal, contrary to…
And so our freedom goes, not with a challenge but with a whimper. Tuesday’s letters to the editors illustrates the growth of censorship in our country. “speech ..... that can’t be allowed.” Those words are so sadly objectionable and short sighted, yet I defend the right to say them. I can’t…
Regarding Sara Samora’s Aug. 4 article: “Pastors, churches prepare to serve big for nonprofits,” if I was not aware of what St. Paul Lutheran Church does to fund several area nonprofits, I would fall for Almquist’s quote, “He said people often view churches as insular, staying to themselves.”

I live in San Antonio and went tubing on Friday and was stunned that it cost $30 to park. Then I saw that New Braunfels was also charging $2 to use a picnic table and $500 dollar fine if you dared feed a squirrel. I felt I’d fallen into some dystopian police state. This wasn’t the city that …
So, you think you might like to vote for Trump again, but before you solidify that decision, take a look at some concrete proposals Democrats make — not the wannabe/impossible/pie-in-the-sky kind, but real, concrete proposals, right before your very eyes and ears, if you watch TV and read th…

Archer, our terrier, is one of the weirdest dogs you’ll meet. First of all, his ancestry is a mix that must include dogs with one ear that sticks up, a tail that curls into a half question mark, an undersized head, long legs, and the ability to complete a 4-foot vertical jump.
