Program offered through Y shapes future lawmakers

November 15, 2014

I don’t know about you, but when I think of the YMCA, I think of physical fitness.

I had no idea that YMCAs throughout the country, including the one in Hood County, offer a program for middle school and high school students that has nothing to do with exercising the body, but everything to do with exercising the mind.

Placement of the wreath

Placement of the wreath

All was silent but the howling wind at the Granbury Cemetery Tuesday as (from left) County Judge Darrell Cockerham, Granbury Mayor Nin Hulett and American Legion Post 491 Commander Jack Sides placed a wreath during the Veterans Day program. A good-sized crowd came out, despite the wind and bitter cold, to honor the bravery and sacrifice of U.S.

How competitive? I want to trounce Ol’ Sol’!

November 15, 2014

There’s something about Americans. We’ve convinced ourselves that we’re The Best.

Love them more than lasterday

November 8, 2014

I’m absolutely in love with Finley’s current age.

She’ll be 4 in January, and her “best cousin” Bennett will be 4 in February.

Because of their closeness in age and the fact that my mom keeps them during the week, they’ve always been more like twins than cousins.

Watching them play together is one of my favorite things.

Time for council to see reality

November 8, 2014

The Granbury City Council once again is making decisions that not only are not in the city’s best interest, but could actually do damage.

Tuesday night, council members voted to spend up to $27,000 to hire a search firm to help in the hunt for a new city manager.

That’s $27,000 in taxpayer money – on top of $11,500 the council agreed in September to spend on a tourism consultant.
