It has been a difficult two years since 2020 as we have fought with the COVID pandemic, its aftermath and stupid federal government decisions. All of this has affected our lives drastically. We now live in an America that none of us recognize.

It’s hard to believe but next Saturday is Christmas, a time when most Americans love to celebrate, usually with gifts, family and food. 

In 2015, I distinctly remember hearing the news that Starbucks’ iconic holiday cups would just be a simple red that year. Now, being born and raised in Henderson and disliking the taste of coffee, I didn’t really care. It didn’t affect my world. At that point in my life, I hadn’t even set fo…

There’s a slight possibility that by the time you’re reading this, I might be on the side of a road up by Waco with the car we just bought, arguing with my boyfriend, Matt, over whether or not we should call a tow truck.

I love the holidays, if for no other reason the fact that I get six of them off with pay. Some of them I love more than others. For example my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving although it seems that our society today skips right over it with little or no thought about it. I’ve noticed that c…

For those of you who don’t keep up with pop culture news, last weekend, rapper Travis Scott (you might know him from his guest performance at 2019’s Super Bowl halftime show or his collaboration with McDonald’s) held a huge music festival in Houston. What was supposed to be a fun night for d…

On March 31, 2021 President Joe Biden announced his Build Back Better Plan attempting to convince all Americans that his plan would be better for them than any other existing plan, especially for the middle class. Supposedly this plan will make life so much better for all of us. At least tha…

I’m just as angry, just as hurt, just as disgusted as Mr. and Mrs. Petito are right now. We all are.

I wasn’t an overly political person. As a general rule, I didn’t concern myself with matters of country, state, county, or city. I just lived my life.

Many of you may remember the Great Recession of 2008. Actually it started December 2007 and lasted until June 2009. I have never forgotten it neither the symptoms that started it. It devastated our nation and economy and brought havoc and fear to our citizens. It has been reported that this …

Do you remember?  I am not talking about the day-to-day requirements of everyday living, but occasions, events that you will always remember!  Events like 9-11.

Sometimes the darkness creeps in on stockinged feet, slowly and silently, catching you unawares. Other times it rolls in like a high tide, a wave of unexpected and often unexplained emotion, a riptide of horrific thoughts and false perceptions. 

We don’t often think of aging as funny!  However, but with more experience in this aging process, I have discovered some humor with the help of my longtime friend Scott Eubanks.

This state, and the rest of the world if I’m going to be honest, keep me in a constant state of face-palm-inducing frustration. 

I woke up to the sound of howling at 1 a.m. this morning. The house was pitch black with only the yellow-orange light from the streetlights crawling through the windows. I tried to close my eyes and block it out.

Money is one of the most important necessities in our society. Without it or some representation of it you can’t purchase the necessities of life. In other words it is nearly impossible to function in life without it.

As Henderson natives, we can all agree that rounding up your family and driving to the annual fireworks show at Lake Forest Park is a staple of the Fourth of July. I mean, what would the holiday be without developing a mild case of road rage as you fight for the best view in the parking lot …

Lately it seems if we are forced to live under what I call the “G” Principle. What is the “G” principle you might ask? Simply put it is gouging and greed.

Since the first of the year there has been a shortage of workers in Texas. For the past few months I have traveled across East Texas and the Gulf Coast and saw signs everywhere at all types of businesses posting signage that said now hiring, hiring for all positions, sign-on bonuses, and the…

In 1963 Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech that has resonated for 58 years. To me the most powerful part of that speech was the conclusion when King said, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we are Free at last.”

Your kids can’t wait. Their teachers can’t wait. Everybody is so excited about Summer. Except for me, I hate it. It’s my least favorite time of the year. 

Police Appreciation Week ended Saturday as many were honored for their bravery for putting their lives in harms way to protect ours.
