Everyone is gearing up for the upcoming Halloween weekend with costumes and candy galore. Celebrating holidays will be different during a pandemic and even though COVID-19 cases are down in our area overall, the coronavirus is still active in our community. However, there are ways people can…
I think President Trump has done a excellent job in the past four years and will accomplish much more in the next four years. He has beaten back the impeachment fiasco, taken on and won against the establishment Republicans, the Democratic Party, the military industrial complex and the parti…
But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now …
Since this week is our East vs. West volleyball and football games, I thought I would channel my inner football coach to start this post. Any great football coach knows the game isn’t won with touchdowns; it’s won by downs. Focus on the downs and the touchdowns take care of themselves. When …
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both. Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? Open rebuke is better than secret love.
Texas Democrats are trying to add nine seats to their total in the Texas House, enough to regain a majority they lost almost two decades ago. But Republicans aren’t idle, and they’re targeting seats Democrats barely won last time.
And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
The ugliness that we have recently witnessed including rioting, billions of dollars of property destruction, assaults, murders and grossly stupid claims about our nation has its origins on college campuses. Two websites, College Reform and College Fix, report on the despicable teachings on c…
The most recent employment data indicates that the pace of hiring in Texas has slowed. In September, 40,700 net new jobs were added, compared to 111,900 in August. Moreover, the unemployment rate rose and is now higher than the national level. Not great news, but not unexpected.
Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation. Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him. A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
Voting laws in Texas are the most restrictive in the country. And voter turnout here is among the lowest, too. Maybe those facts are related.
Transparency, efficiency, access. These are the principles that will guide my administration and the candidacy for Victoria County Precinct 1 commissioner.
And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities. Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light f…
My personal vision is to foster a culture of continuous improvement in all that we do. As you have all come to know, I also have a relentless commitment to radical transparency. I am going to use this space to talk just a bit about the last few weeks as it relates to in-person instruction, r…
Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.
The following editorial published on Oct. 13 in the Wall Street Journal:The Wall Street Journal on partisan divides during Amy Coney Barrett’s U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings:
The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason. He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears. As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
Too many Texans, one out of five adults, struggle with basic literacy. Far more, three of five, would fail the U.S. citizenship exam. Beyond civic literacy and literacy itself, Americans also have poor economic and financial literacy. Too many of us make terrible decisions, fail to budget, a…
