Over the course of the last two weeks, issues arising out of the current Mexico-United States border crisis have spilled over into our area. As reported in the Kingsville Record last week, there were two serious incidents on Monday, September 20 that involved area law enforcement tracking do…
Last week in the Publisher’s Perspective, I wrote about my favorite Rock & Roll music of all-time. As soon as the paper came out, I received a number of emails from readers about bands or singers they claimed I missed.
Over the course of the past number of months, I have been doing a lot of traveling on business and for personal pleasure. While traveling, I listen to a lot of different music stations, news stations and other forms of media. I noticed that many of the stations on my Satellite radio play a l…
Seven hundred fifty two miles is how far I traveled. Four hundred and twenty two days is the amount of time I have resided in Kingsville to date. “Where the hell is Kingsville, TX?” is the question I asked my husband when he told me to pack up my things, because he’s heading to the Naval Air…
Jolly ‘Ol St. Nicholas came calling a little earlier this year--like three months earlier--and this time he wasn’t bringing presents to all the good boys and girls of the world!

Water quality and quantity (conservation) continues to be an important issue throughout the state. Municipalities are required to frequently test their water supply for contaminants. Private water well owners have no requirements to evaluate their water source for contamination. Private wate…
Congressman Vela (D-TX34) recently applauded the exodus of Texas Democrats from the state as a perfectly legitimate method of conducting the people’s business in Texas. His logic, basically, was this: when you cannot beat them, turn off the lights and shut the whole thing down.
Can someone explain to me the absurdity of building a Texas border wall when there’s such a demand for cheap labor. Labor prices are going up and that means profits are going down for the corporations, CEOs and business owners. If we stop the cheap labor from coming across the border then th…
