I want to eat healthy, or at least die trying

June 7, 2014

A recent Discovery News online article led off with this earth-shattering news flash:

“Eating seven or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day reduces people’s risk of dying, a new study suggests.”

Above all, that was a poorly worded sentence. Obviously the writer didn’t mean to suggest that some of us won’t have to die – if we just eat enough fruits and vegetables.

Blood spilled in the sand for us

June 7, 2014

Seventy years ago Operation Overlord brought more aircraft, ships and soldiers together than any other battle before or after.

American, British, French and Canadian forces met on the beaches of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944: D-Day.

My tour bus parked in its designated spot, and I began to make my way to the historic beach with 20 other high school students.

Churches type the darndest things

May 31, 2014

by Nancy Pricer, staff writer

Church bulletins are intended to be good, serious and informative.

Makes me think of the old maxim, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions,” but I doubt the typesetters will be on that road for typos and unclear sentences.

And I doubt the Devil made them do it.

Tuesday afternoon, District Judge Ralph Walton sentenced Granbury High School graduate Marcus Click to 10 years in prison.

Kids a challenge in restaurants

May 24, 2014

My husband and I have always been fans of going out to eat. (Who am I kidding? If it involves eating, we’re fans no matter what.)

There are many evenings when I get home from work and there’s not really anything in the pantry or fridge, so we’ll load up in the (awesome) minivan and go to one of our favorite restaurants.

The sinkable Mike Brown

It was late afternoon one day last week that auto dealer Mike Brown finally had time to talk.

It had been a busy morning.

After sending me an email that he had decided to shelve his planned Dodge dealership in Granbury, Brown had driven to Cleburne for the grand opening of his daughter Kris Brown’s Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership.
