Chad Hall sat in front of two cameras one afternoon to tearfully retell the story of his gruesome cycling accident in late July that landed him in the emergency room. He flew over the handlebars of his bicycle after a dog ran out in front of him, resulting in him face-planting onto the aspha…
The long-awaited recording of the meeting between the House speaker and a political operative is now out – and as turns out, Michael Quinn Sullivan’s account was mostly on the nose.
He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat. He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly. He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him f…
Last week, we held our P-TECH Healthcare advisory meeting. You will recall P-TECH Healthcare is a new initiative for Victoria ISD starting next year. The P-TECH Healthcare is a new opportunity exclusively for our current eighth-grade students who will be starting as high school freshmen in 2020.
He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry. He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
When you serve 31 years as a Victoria firefighter and paramedic, you don’t need a traffic study to know the city’s most dangerous streets.
Life in Point Comfort was pretty idyllic in the post WWII/Korea war years of the 1950s and 1960s. Our fathers brought us to this little factory village from near and far as the post-war economy craved aluminum for the world. The jobs were good, steady, paid well, and our fathers could provid…
The Competitive Enterprise Institute has published a new paper, “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.” Keep in mind that many of the grossly wrong environmentalist predictions were made by respected scientists and government officials. My question for you is: If you we…
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of…
Lawmakers want voters to replace the current constitutional hurdle to a personal income tax in Texas with a marginally higher one. Think of it as insurance against something that isn’t likely to happen anyway.
I want to say I agree with many of the points in Mr. Whitefield’s guest column, “Choose Wisely,” that appeared in the Advocate Sept. 25. However, he fails to understand that secularism and humanism were part of the radical thinking of our country’s founders in their struggle to protect our n…
Garage sales are a little ridiculous if you think about it. As a society we spend untold millions trying to protect the sanctity of our homes from intrusion, and then we hold garage sales, where the entire point is to lure nosy strangers onto our property to rummage through our personal belongings.
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Governments respond to problems as policymakers see them. And sometimes – homelessness appears to be a case – the solutions only address what’s visible to politicians and their voters.
Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely. The Lord doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
This White House breathes chaos. It’s like one of those Vaudevillian plate spinners who isn’t happy until all the plates come crashing down to the ground. The attraction consists of the cast kicking through the detritus, which is always loud and cacophonous.
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all …
Many of our task forces have begun their work. For those who came to the kickoff meeting, I shared how our task forces are going to be working through several complex conversations over the next few months. The work of this group will be leading to a strategic planning effort where we will o…
The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous: The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, u…
I want to start this post with a greeting and then an apology. The greeting is “Happy New Year!” Many people celebrate the new year Jan. 1, but on college and university campuses around the country, our new year is the start of school in the fall. So, “Happy New Year” to all of you in Jaguar…
The Victoria Police Foundation donated a check in the amount of $1,000 to the Citizen’s Medical Center Bunco Fundraiser, which raises money to assist women who are in need of a mammogram and care packages to women undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
