OPINION — Reading about the Texas GOP’s censure of U.S. Rep. Tony Gonzales hurts me, deeply. We can learn a lot from his independent streak and perspective of fairness which at times runs afoul of extreme Texas GOP party doctrine.
OPINION — Robert Duvall played the character of Boss Spearman in ‘Open Range.’ When he caught his young hand, Button, cheating during a friendly poker game, he told him, ‘A man’s trust is a valuable thing, Button. You don’t want to lose it for a handful of cards.’

OPINION — How the rehashed topic of a ballot initiative to change the way San Angelo selects its police chief is not known, but the movement to have the city manager and council select a chief instead of the current police chief election is certain to fail.
