The Christmas season in Granbury officially began with last night’s annual Night of Lights Christmas Parade. The Candlelight Tour of Homes is next weekend – Friday and Saturday, Dec.

Clock’s ticking on caring

November 26, 2014

“Were you thinking of your own death?” Linda has a nice way of hugging me. We had just lost Dexter, our Siamese cat.

“Well, maybe – perhaps. I may have been thinking about that when I buried him at the ranch. I looked at him for the last time. He was only 5 years old – healthy one day and gone the next.” How did Linda know what I was thinking?

Letter to the Editor

November 22, 2014

Perspective please: $27,000 vs. $179 million

The Hood County News’ Nov. 8 editorial, “Council needs a reality check” regarding the selection process of the next City Manager is only partially accurate, and completely misses the bigger picture.

Hiring Granbury’s next City Manager will be the most important decision we make as a City Council; I take this responsibility very seriously and we, the city council, only have one chance to get it right.

Can’t stand the heat? Get out of the kitchen

November 22, 2014

One of the best feelings in life is when we leave our gangly, awkward teenage years behind.

But, tragically, gangly and awkward can follow us, even after complexion problems turn into postmenopausal osteoporosis.

(I don’t actually have postmenopausal osteoporosis. I just happened to think of it because of that commercial that has Blythe Danner in it.)

The reason I bring up gangly and awkward is because that’s how I felt last Saturday when I attended a cooking class with co-worker Nancy Pricer.

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.

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.
