Much work ahead of us

There are extreme positives that have come out of what seemed to be an incredibly minor issue in Hood County.

The simple request from a mother of a 4-year-old child to have a couple of sexually oriented books moved to a more appropriate section in the library highlights how out of control our local government is – right here in Hood County, Texas.

Mockingbird sequel sings new verse, same song

July 25, 2015

My mother couldn’t keep me in books as a child.

I read everything I could get my hands on – books from school, books from home, her books, the neighbors’ books, and the back of cereal boxes. Her running joke was that she’d need a second job just to pay my bookstore bills.

Kids, grandads say the darndest things

July 25, 2015

Don’t mess with those Glen Rose boys.

They can be tough.

My buddy Gary, from the land of the dinosaur, breaths competitive fire.

We’re official geezers now, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to vanquish opponents on the tennis court and golf course.

He’s a big fan of the Cowboys and Rangers and Jordan Spieth.

What it means to be a Texan, officially

July 25, 2015

As Texans, we have a style of our own – from our hospitality to our headwear.

But you may be surprised to hear the iconic symbol of Western culture, the cowboy hat, only became an official state symbol a few weeks ago courtesy of the 84th Texas Legislature.

This makes Texas the first state to designate an officially sanctioned hat.

Giving the Tea Party its say on library ‘censorship’ issue

It’s been a rough few weeks for the Hood County Tea Party, which might explain (at least in part) the letter hand delivered to the Hood County News and to members of the Commissioners Court this week.

It’s been a rough few weeks because we have made national news on two separate issues because of views that are seen by many as extremist and radical.

Grieving mom: ‘There is another life for us’

July 18, 2015

Teresa Molder has been through the wringer.

She has endured one of the most difficult experiences a mother can face.

Not only did her son Cory Molder die, it was an apparent suicide while he was an inmate in the Hood County Jail, authorities said.

Three days after being sentenced to 20 years in prison, Molder was found hanging in his cell on June 29.

Proud of Lang’s stance

Many are disappointed in the way in which the HCN has treated the “gay” assault on Hood County. Marriage is not mentioned in the Constitution. Therefore, “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or the People.”

Yes, that comes from our U.S.

Character assassination

It is no surprise that Hood County News exhibited such enthusiasm in their character assassination of Mrs. Katie Lang and Mrs. Mel Birdwell. That is what newspapers do to Christians and conservatives.

News is incapable of reporting an unbiased position. They impose their distorted opinion on citizens, and are vehement in the destruction of the moral opposition.

July 11, 2015

nVisit the Sea Turtle Rescue

nTake professional photos of the kids

nHave a few game nights

nGo crab hunting

nLots and lots of beach time.
