Tom Green County Judge Steve Floyd should consider rescinding the Covid emergency here, too. Covid-19 hospitalizations and new infections have dwindled to a trickle here where only 14 new cases were added to the rolls on Friday, Feb. 26. Only 16 are hospitalized, down from over a 100 hospitalizations during the peak of the pandemic just months ago.
he last time my mother threw anything away on purpose was probably sometime during the Truman administration. Not that she was a hoarder. She didn’t save things because of an irrational compulsion to collect detritus.
OPINION — Regardless of whether you voted for Joe Biden, you have to admit no president, in the history of our country, has kept as many campaign promises as quickly after being sworn in to the office. He is, without question, a man of his word. Biden promised to devastate the American economy as soon as possible, and during his first three days he signed thirty (30) executive orders, which did just that. You gotta hand it to him. Seriously, I think one of the executive orders was that you gotta hand it to him.
OPINION — With Joe Biden’s inauguration, readers have been asking me what I think will happen during this new administration, and how it will affect hunting, fishing, the environment, the economy, religion, and my column. People are understandably concerned about their future, especially in light of the disasters of the past year. Plus, according to the Texas Dept. of Agriculture, lizards the size of dogs are invading Texas in droves.
OPINION — Here’s a little quiz for you: What do Ricky Gervais, Joanna Lumley, Peter Egan, Ed Sheeran, Dame Judi Dench, and Piers Morgan have in common? I mean besides the fact they’re all people you’ve never heard of. Except for Ricky Gervais and Piers Morgan. You’ve heard of them, because they’ve appeared in this column, although they probably weren’t happy about it.
OPINION — In my 22 years of active duty service in the US Army, I learned many lessons in leadership. I would be happy to share them with you, as they are enshrined on the 3×5 cards I carry. Having served in combat, my first combat tour was 30 years ago in Operation Desert Shield/Storm. It became very apparent that when bullets begin to fly, it is the resilient, resolved, and focused commander that inspires victory. I have always stated, “no one follows a Frantic Fannie into combat.”
OPINION — I had been in Nashville for six long years I started as an agent forThe Hubert Long Agency, then hired on as a tour consultant for two years with Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. As that tour came to an end I got a call from Tom Collins, a well known producer and head of Charley Pride’s Pi Gem music. Could I meet with Charley next Tuesday? Of course.
