Jan. 6. An anniversary. Remembering an infamous day. Wanting to know everything that is knowable about the who, the what and the how it happened. Because we say that ignorance is bliss only in fun. Ignorance is dangerous.
I am enjoying the Feel Good News Braunfels stories. I especially liked the article on the Bading farm. It is nice to be reminded of all the quiet good done in life when we are constantly bombarded in the news with the opposite. Thanks!
Though not wealthy, Jesus was accorded honor among His people because of His heritage. Nevertheless, He became an outcast due to His love of the poor. He was moved to compassion by their tears, distress, and rejection. “If you love me,” He told His followers, “then you must love the least of…
The favorite childhood memories of many adults’ center around Christmas and birthdays. For many of us those were times we were free from school responsibilities, received special attention, and got material things we had wished for.
As a freshman at New Braunfels High School, I am beyond disappointed in representative Matt Krause’s decision to launch an investigation into school districts and the books they carry.
The first sentence of the letter Lee Hunnicutt wrote is right, socialism doesn’t work. I’m curious as to why he decided to throw this in after correctly referring to Cuba and Venezuela as examples of socialist countries: “the workers’ paradise.” One can only assume he draws a parallel betwe…
I would like to suggest that the new bond advisory committee appointed by City Council look into the possibility of erecting sound barriers along sections of the highways which run through New Braunfels.
I hope everyone who reads or contributes to the Herald-Zeitung read David Shribman’s column on Nov. 24. More importantly, I hope they take it to heart and learn something from it. What he says is so true today. The only thing I disagreed with is I would’ve said “persistent willful ignorance”…
Publisher Neice Bell’s article resonated with this reader and she was certainly correct in stating the answer depends upon who you are asking. I fully agree that we have wonderful PLACES to visit and THE PEOPLE of our town are friendly, welcoming and enjoy a party.
I am responding to Mr. Gary Gius’ Letter to the Editor titled ‘Women are treated differently.’ In my recent opinion piece on mandates, I wrote that, “I will not be denied my constitutional right to make my own decisions. My body, my choice.”
Socialism doesn’t work. It never has worked and this is borne out from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. If you don’t believe me just look at Cuba and Venezuela, the workers’ paradise. Russia collapsed under it.
While nearly everyone is likely to be familiar with Alzheimer’s disease because of its skyrocketing prevalence, many people don’t realize that it disproportionately affects older Black and Hispanic Americans versus older Whites. Black Americans are two to three times more likely to develop A…
Ron Frisk’s Oct. 30 column highlights a growing trend/problem in our country. Specifically, an increasing emphasis on individualism under the guise of freedom vice what’s best for the everyone overall, i.e., the common good concept. Especially when it comes to COVID-19. If the 45th presiden…
The Herald-Zeitung has featured articles describing the “advantages” of abortion and its history in the U. S. Reading these articles reminds me of Allie Beth Stuckey’s wonderfully exact comment on abortions, their promoters and the evils of killing inconvenient babies.
