gislation is neither clear nor reasoned, much less fully read by those voting for or against it. Righting the wrongs can often be more complicated because of entrenched views and unwillingness to admit error. Fortunately for small businesses, the bipartisan efforts of two freshman Congressme…
I read the opinion section frequently and on occasion I have felt the need to respond, as I now do to Mr. Taylor’s piece, “The free press is failing us” on May 21.
In Don Volz’s opinion piece “Smoke & mirrors & General Flynn” from the weekend, he seems to remember only facts that he wants to remember forgetting all others.
Mark Whittaker in his letter on the coronavirus pandemic published in the May 9-10 edition of the Herald-Zeitung criticizes an article by Jack McKinney for his “bigotry” and appears to defend cattleman Ammon Bundy, a one time militia leader and anti-government activist who has flouted Idaho’…
During this scary and devastating pandemic time, it’s easy to become discouraged about our loss of normal activities and certainly saddened over the loss of loved ones.
The May 2-3 edition of the Herald-Zeitung highlighted the memorials in Landa Park including the 1938 German Pioneer Monument that has a German inscription from Goethe. Perhaps the Herald-Zeitung could have informed the readers that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was a giant among Ger…
Jack McKinney can’t contain his bigotry as he tries to equate cattleman Ammon Bundy with states that out-thought the herd mentality, which strained so many state economies, and resisted sending their residents into state-mandated hiding. That’s as ridiculous as labeling Jack as the slope-hea…
On March 20 My son and I went to H-E-B. It was windy, cold, raining and the line to get in was about a half a block long. The store was packed but I noticed most people were smiling and everyone was so polite.
The Herald-Zeitung has reported the NBISD school board decided that, for high school students, the grades earned during the internet schooling program (enacted in response to the “stay home” orders mandated by the coronavirus) will not be included in their grade point averages. In other word…
Will Wright’s article “Corona pandemic shuffles NBISD grades, rankings” of April 21 is very good and I loved what was said about the students and keeping their GPA where they were before this big COVID-19 issues.
Often our best guide to the future is the past. Consider the night of decision on the Titanic: no moon, only starlight; the lookout reports icebergs nearby; the ship’s officers, or perhaps the captain alone, decide to steam ahead instead of stopping until daylight. Another ship, the Californ…
Guest columnist Bill Ibbotson’s beautiful article reciting the parable of the Good Samaritan and Jesus’s instruction to love they neighbor as he described the rage against Franklin Graham’s charity, Samaritan’s Purse. It was reported in that article that Graham had set up a 68-bed hospital w…
Karenism is the new word of the COVID crisis. It’s the nice way to call out those who nag and pester or bully others to conform. Our politicians have gone beyond being Karens. They’ve decided to be totalitarians using force, fines and arrests to coerce citizens to follow their edicts on esse…
I’ve been visiting & caring for my elderly Aunt over the past month. I enjoy reading her Herald-Zeitung. However, I have a bit of an issue with the cover photo of this weekend’s edition. It “features” circular spin-out tire tracks in front of Pier 1 Imports & TJ*Maxx.
