As we move into the school year, one area I want to highlight is the college preparation and college credit programs we offer at Granbury ISD. This is a vital part of our school and an area we are working to strengthen in the near future.
I was recently asked some questions about the dual credit courses we offer, so I did a little research.… Read the rest
Brazos Drive-in needs
A few weeks ago there was a request for ideas on how to help save the Brazos Drive-in theater.
Just like the big sports team stadiums and other large venues, Brazos Drive-in needs a corporate sponsor.
Keeping Granbury alive and having great attractions will help keep us on the map for a fabulous town with things to do and see.… Read the rest
I’ve had it with flying, and I’ll bet you have too!
Seriously, I’m through with airlines. After booking a flight to visit family, pay extra to fly on a particular day with a purchased seat, I would arrive in my home city in four hours.
The flight was canceled!
The delayed, rescheduled flight with a lousy seat, didn’t even take me to my destination.… Read the rest
The philosophy of housing Granbury ninth-graders mirrors musical chairs.
Ninth-graders are here, then move there, then maybe back here again.
School officials are wanting voters to approve a bond election Nov. 5 that includes moving ninth-graders back to the high school. They would have their own two-story wing, stretching from near the cafeteria toward the parking lot.

The rule seemed simple: Until all of the receivers achieved a 75 percent reception rate, the game would be played with a basketball.… Read the rest
The combination of hackers and radically invasive online advertising will eventually destroy Facebook and the Internet as we know it.
I didn’t attribute that claim to anyone because it’s my own prediction. I’ve been saying that for a while to anyone who will listen.
Several friends of mine have indicated that their Facebook account was hacked. In some of those cases, a post would show up on the Facebook “news feed” that offered something enticing.… Read the rest
It started out as a laid back day in which my two college student sons and I put everything aside in order to do nothing except spend time together.
It ended up with us not hitting our beds until 2:30 a.m. the next morning, the boys being so sore they could barely move, and the bathtub needing to be scrubbed because the bottom of it was black.… Read the rest
My church has a monthly get-together for the ladies where somebody teaches the group how to do a craft, and all of the attending women then do the craft themselves.
The other night was my first time to attend this gathering, and I was a little nervous about my crafting skills. I mean, I’m pretty good at certain crafts, but having to do something in a group setting always makes me nervous.… Read the rest
