This is a national election. What happens in Texas definitely matters here.
There are a growing number of groups, especially minority groups, once taken for granted by the Democratic Party, that are experiencing a dramatic awakening to the truth – that they were taken advantage of, manipulated and lied to, used and then discarded once their votes had been cast.
“HUD Secretary Ben Carson said on HBO’s March 10 Axios: “A lot of the people … detained … put into sprung structures and tent cities are actually quite nice.” Also, “… Had both air conditioning and heating …” That’s an unconscionable degree of malarkey!
If bigotry is a crime in America, Dr. Alma Lynch will be doing hard time behind bars. While she was running for election to the U.S. House to represent Texas' 23rd Congressional District, the Republican candidate suggested that spraying the nation with pig's blood would keep Muslims out of the US. What planet does this doctor live on? This is the most ludicrous anti-Muslim suggestion I heard!
This primary election cycle there is an important decision; who to select as our next 63rd Judicial District Attorney; Michael Bagley, the current District Attorney or Suzanne West the City Attorney for Del Rio, Texas.
Dear Editor, in hearing the complaints at the civic center and reading about the complaints on Tuesday’s council meeting, I am appalled at the lack of knowledge being displayed by both the council members and the community.
I’m wondering if anyone else has trouble with the AMC channel on Sunday night’s broadcast of The Walking Dead. The channel seems to work fine at any other time or day but just falls apart on Sunday night. And only when it’s TWD season. Spectrum supposedly boosts the signal if you complain bu…
While Democrats have been too tangled-up wasting their time, talent and treasure trying unsuccessfully to remove the president from office, he’s been busy working for the American people. He’s been happily dancing the two-step. The two-step is a partner dance, consisting of a “leader” and a “follower.” President Trump is the leader of the free-world and the rest of the world is closely-watching, taking-note and following in his foot-steps.
On behalf of The Amistad Pregnancy Care Center, we would like to express our gratitude to the Little Handmaids of Our Sorrowful Mother for organizing the Fifth Annual Baby Shower that was held Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020 at St. Joseph Catholic Church to benefit our center.
The truth is the pro-life movement is extremely diverse. People of different ideologies, political parties, and belief systems care about pre-born babies and work wholeheartedly to protect them.
We are so very grateful and humbled by the graciousness of the many friends and neighbors of Susan Ridgway, our mom. The outpouring of love and support is truly a testament of the “can do” spirit of Del Rio and we have felt the love, gratitude and adoration for our mom.
It’s Christmas Eve and the neighborhood is aglow with strings of ice-colored lights meticulously wrapped around the tree trunks. It is a shimmering illumination giving the landscape the feel of a wintery-wonderland.
As comedian Gilda Radner, playing Emily Litella, would famously say in her Editorial Reply on the news segment of Saturday Night Live (SNL) when she was gently corrected for her innocent and inadvertent misinterpretations: “Oh, that’s different. Never mind!”
Flaring in the Permian Basin just hit record numbers for the second quarter in a row, with operators flaring an astonishing 752 million cubic feet of gas a day – an alarming reality, given the human and environmental risks associated with burning natural gas.
My Thanksgiving week inventory of “thankful” includes RV travels from my Alpine, Texas home; now where my parents were Winter Texans at Fig Tree RV Resort in Harlingen. Yes, I miss the wilderness of the Big Bend, but the RV needs repairs more available in the Valley.
Journalists have prided themselves in being the bastions of the free-press valiantly “speaking truth to power,” but recent revelations show they shamelessly kowtowed to the prominent, powerful progressives. Shocking! Utterly shocking! Sarcastically said ...
With each click of a mouse this shopping season, you are missing a golden opportunity to help your community grow, as well as to discover the hidden gems among wonderful local businesses.
Fifty-six years ago on this Nov. 22 President John F. Kennedy was a victim of a plot that took his life along with the dreams of many citizens who mourned his death in the United States and around the world.
This is the guiding principle concerning “Conflicts of interest and avoiding any hint of impropriety,” essential for analyzing public servant/official’s conduct, https://is.gd/90Ro9r. President Trump routinely disregards those established norms.
Legacy news reporting died when mainstream media reporters no longer reported what was going-on, but only commented on what a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad President Americans had elected.
We’re very thankful for returning to the Lower Rio Grande Valley after six years. Our first Sunday began at brunch with a good friend actively assisting immigrants seeking asylum the administration continues exploiting. Then we visited a peaceful place, the historic La Lomita Chapel, https://is.gd/mqrMtB, on the Rio Grande in Mission Texas.
Thirteen thousand plus lies and corruption define Trump’s presidency. “The guardrails are off … he’s becoming ever more incorrigible,” https://is.gd/ZF4b04.
According to Pete Buttigieg, 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate, “there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath,” claiming human life begins with babies first breath outside their mother’s womb, personhood being imparted via the inhalation of oxygen into the baby’s lungs.
A woman wrote a letter to the editor titled “Run, Red, Run.” It is a folktale parody promoting the policy of running people out of town for expressing certain opinions. In a move irreconcilable with his “freedom-loving” philosophy, the “constitutional conservative” hero summarily expels the villain from the community for being a socialist.
Concerning Trump’s Ukraine scandal, former Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul’s October third comment, https://is.gd/NOtjTr is insightful. “Why did no one say ‘Mr. President, this is wrong’?” Few enough, it seems.
I find it extremely difficult to believe the hospital is doing all it can to facilitate a seamless transfer of service. The hospital has developed a reputation clearly known throughout our county.
Sitting in front of the television watching CNN is like sitting in front of a large front-load washing machine at the laundry-mat. Neither is fun to watch, both are routinely predictable and methodically mundane.
Small schools and rural communities are critical to Texas’ success, and anything negatively impacting small schools or the communities they support hurts us all. Our world is changing rapidly, but the need for rural communities and small schools still exists.
Trump’s grease crayon fiasco over Hurricane Dorian’s destructive path had a disconcerting similarity to Sesame Street’s “The Great Cookie Thief” story read to my pre-Kindergarten son in 1979, https://is.gd/W48e1e. His level of crazy thought it prudent to contradict Weather Service experts warning millions in the way, although creating unnecessary fear for Alabamans.
It is interesting to note that Hong Kong which finds itself in the throes of further impingement by the government of Communist China of overturning some vestiges of its former sovereignty, finds itself rallying in public protest utilizing the signs and symbols of the United States of America.
The book “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe, the true story of a slave family who endured the horrors of slavery, was the catalyst for effectively ending slavery in our country. Now there is a book/movie “Unplanned” by Abby Johnson, the true story of a former Planned Parenthood abo…
It’s been a year since my father went from this world to his Heavenly Father’s arms. My father always spoke to me about what he wanted when he died. Both of my parents had already purchased a burial spot and my father gave me instructions of what he wanted.
