Better plan for Busy Morgan Street

James Deaver’s plan to relieve the northbound traffic on Morgan Street at U.S. 377 will not solve the backup problem.

To add a third lane to accept all the backup traffic the lane would have to extend at least to Autumn Ridge Drive. Few people continue north on Morgan past 377 so the backup would not be eliminated.

@TEOTD (at the end of the day), we need a texting law

April 4, 2015

By Kathy Cruz

An important public safety issue continues to be the subject of great debate at the Capitol in Austin, despite the fact that the bill – House Bill 80 – passed in the House of Representatives last week.

Out-of-town graduations, proms come at a price

A beautiful life

March 28, 2015

I was trying on dresses for an event I was attending, and before I put the dresses on, I put on my Spanx.

Yes, I’m 31, I’ve had two children, and at times I wear Spanx.

I have no shame.

Finley walked in my bathroom when I was just in the Spanx and she said, “Hey, those are beautiful.”

I looked in the mirror, horrified.

I needed Mama’s beans

March 28, 2015

They weren’t Mama’s beans.

The juice was thick and tasty in Mama’s pinto beans. I think it was because she sizzled bacon and poured the grease in the simmering pot of beans.

Wouldn’t meet U.S. Dietary Guidelines today, but lawd amighty were her beans good.

I didn’t inherit her bean-cooking talent, but a young gentleman made me smile when he said my beans reminded him of his grandmama’s.

State Sen. Sylvia Garcia (D-Houston) said the “people of Texas” don’t want it, and neither do campus administrators.
