Regarding The Crossroads Trail Road. Under topic it reads "El Comino Real de los Tejas." As indicated, it's improper Spanish. It should either read "El Comino Real de los Tejano's or El Comino Real de Tejas."

The last thing the city of Cuero needs is an expanded H-E-B; its prices are high. Cuero's mayor is a former economics teacher. She should know competition drives prices down, not expansion.

Since the president of the Victoria Chamber of Commerce knows that texting while driving diminishes his driving skills, why does he do it? That's not leadership.
