Why, oh why, Wyoming?



My mother was born in Wyoming in October of 1919. Her parents were Polish immigrants who came from Austria around the turn of the 20th Century and settled in the United States. Why Austria? Poland didn’t exist when they lived in Europe. It had been partitioned and their part of it was in Austria. Like many immigrants, they traveled to […]

Statue to honor ‘Keep Austin Weird’ promoter Leslie in the works

The Way I See It

I read an article last week of an Austin icon who may be memorialized with a statue, commissioned by Spencer Nutting of artist Bob Coffee, in downtown Austin. Leslie Cochran, known for his cross-dressing, mayoral candidacy, homelessness and downtown roamings, died March 8, 2012 after living in a facility after a head injury he suffered in 2009.

I t’s Spring Break and almost St. Patrick’s Day, sadly these two vacation times can lead to dangerous driving conditions as alcohol is synonymous with both these times of respite. Dru Benavides, Texas A&M AgriLife Family & Community Health Agent, is working to spread the message about the dangers of drunk driving. Even one drink can be one too many. […]

State Capital Highlights

With the filing of legislation that would give teachers an across-the-board pay increase, Texas lawmakers showed progress toward solving the complex issues of school finance and property tax reform. Senate Bill 3, passed March 4 by the full Senate on a voice vote, would entitle each classroom teacher and full-time librarian to a state-financed $5,000 increase above their 2018-2019 school […]

Say a little prayer



I t was probably the worst time in my life – everything seemed to be working against me, and I couldn’t understand why. I had returned from a year in Vietnam to a marriage that was coming apart and I was in a military assignment where I wasn’t wanted. I was confused and not sure where I was going or […]

Luke Perry was a heart throb to many and a nice human, too

The Way I See It

Luke Perry of “Beverly Hills, 90210” – and more importantly – “8 Seconds” fame, succumbed on Monday after suffering a devastating stroke. Of course he appeared in other TV shows and movies, but his role in the above are forever etched in my mind – especially his role as Lane Frost in “8 Seconds.” Frost was the 1987 PRCA Bull […]
