Good luck, Russell. I know you will represent Calhoun County well.

I had just finished taking to a client and went into my office and turned on my computer and saw the news bulletin. I was living in McAllen at the time; we were all in shock. Then fear set it, because were so close to the Rio Grande border. My students were all in shock, because no one knew what going to happen next.
Congratulations to Mrs Kidder. She taught at Victoria College when I was there in the 1970's; she and I were great friends. She has been a role model for many young people, including me.
Good Luck to you, Kim. I had my own stroke in 1998 at the age of 42. There were times when all I had was a smile to keep me going. Like you, I went through months of physical and occupational therapy and was able to resume my teaching career. Having a stroke does teach one what matters most. My prayers and best wishes are with you for a continued recovery. May His grace and peace shine down on you and your son.
Ron was a true academic. He was my mentor and friend for over 25 years. He set the bar high for his students and has provided a good example for me in my own academic career. He was also a very giving and compassionate individual whose memory I shall always treasure. Peace be with his spirit.
How nice to read such an uplifting story. God Bless Mr Cain for his service to our country. There are many who could and should follow his example.
Best wishes on your retirement. You will be missed. I am sure that your passion for classical music has rubbed off on more than one young person. Keep on enjoying what you do.
Thanks for a good piece of interesting history. A slight clarification of the facts is in order. DeTar Hospital was added on to in 1965; it has existed since 1925 and has been its present location since 1936. The addition of the south tower in 1965 was a major addition, but the 1936 building continued to be used for patient treatment until 1970 when the center tower was completed, and the original operating rooms were used until 1978 until the current east tower was completed. In fact, one wing of the original DeTar building served as that hospital's first ICU. Both hospitals have an interesting history, and it's a real shame that so much of the compassionate medical care that took place during that era has long been forgotten. Compared to today's standards, it was primitive, but doctors took a real interest.
I wish you the best in your quest for the gold. Spelling is great mental exercise. As a college professor, I can tell you that my best students are good spellers. Good luck and Godspeed!
What a great story. I knew Daniel and his parents when the Taqueria was at Victoria Mall. The whole family is made up of really nice people. I am glad to see that Daniel is realizing his potential. My best wishes go out to him.
