    I like the way Mayor Will Armstrong thinks and I fully support and agree with him...
    Armstrong states, "I'm certainly not in favor of discontinuing it. We've invested in it and I'm very, very excited,". "When you look at BootFest, it exceeded our expectations. When there's some scientific analysis, I think it'll be favorable. I really don't understand all the controversy around it."
    It reminds me of the time I was playing the slots machine in Vegas and had put over $100.00 in a quarter machine and didn't want to quit because I was "very, very excited," and it was about to pay-off, after all "some scientific analysis" said after you put so much into it, it will pay off...Unfortunately, I ran out of money and the machine didn't pay off...

    Since...Bridgette Bise,is now an employee of the city of Goliad and she will begin working as Goliad's Community and Economic Development director, said Goliad Mayor Jay Harvey.
    AND, Goliad thinks so highly of her, "Bridgette brings with her 15 years of experience in tourism and marketing," said Goliad's City Administrator Sereniah Breland. "She has earned the reputation of a one of the top industry leaders in community branding, events, public relations and organizational management."
    Maybe, Just maybe, we can sell Goliad on the "Bring your boots to Goliad Campaign" and save us half the millions we paid her to make this a success for Victoria...

    I did not intend to offend anyone...ACTUALLY, as stated, I thought you used a nice metaphor to describe why people do not vote "lazyness".
    grammar or spelling geek, I actually use spell "ckeck"...
    Difficulty voting...actually, ck. my status, I always vote early...
    I agree, the majority of people who complain, do not make their voice heard by voting...thanks
    Sorry to bust y'all bubble...

    I like your example...
    Lazyness
    1. The lazy way of spelling "laziness". Often occurs when one is so lazy that they actually measure that on a conventional keyboard the distance from the N to the Y as opposed to the N to the I is shorter than the latter.

    2. lazyness
    Lazyness - See lazy and laziness. Lazyness is the state of being lazy. Lazyness is usually used by people who are too lazy to subsitiute the y for an i. Lazy-"ness" people can also be people who have conflicting lazy attributes.

    What concerns me is...these fights happen everywhere, in public places, schools, middle of the streets, and neighborhoods... it is stated parents condone/support this type of behavior, however, I read no mention of anyone, adults, calling police to inform of such behavior. So, do the "adults" who see this negative behavior, do they also condone this practice or are they too afraid to get involved.

    After spending enormous amounts of the Texans tax money on his vacation campaign, Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to announce an end to his presidential campaign. Best news I've heard all day.

    As long as we, as taxpayers, can afford to foot the bill, why not let him have a go at it...
    Perry has been out of the state for about 80 days so far — drawing his full salary and earning Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst about $33,000 extra.
    Don’t forget it was revealed Perry has been drawing a pension since January for an additional $7,700 per month even though he is not actually retired.
    Perry and Dewhurst are conservatives who preach the need for fiscal restraint and sacrifice during tough times
    Gov. Perry has invoked his retirement from the “employee class” of Texas public workers. He now gets to draw a $92,376 annual pension from that fund. Meanwhile, he gets to continue working among the “elected class” of public employees, drawing his $150,000 annual salary as governor.
    In a way, Perry deserves a salute for using the state retirement system to his advantage

    Henry" Vrana Sr. and Cecilia were great people...it is very true, people would order a meal and find they did not have enough money and Henry would always help them out. When families would eat at the Texas Drive Inn, they always felt welcomed and the Vranas showed they appreciated their business. I honestly do not know of anyone who ask them for help and were turned down. As young kids, we would ask Henry or Cecilla if we could do anything around the restaurant for food. They would allow us to sweep the patio, pickup trash, or cut weeds around the restaurant. When there was no "work" for us to do, he would still give us food and tell us to pay later. There were times, we would go back and wanted to pay and they would say "Oh, someone already paid your ticket"...
    They both had big hearts and were loved by many..
