A Cup of Joe...

By  Joe Gonzales
 
Folks, it’s been fun, but it’s time that I call it quits and walk away. The past six plus years have been amazing, but I’m done. I just can’t do it anymore, I don’t have the time or energy. Well, mainly time....ladies and gentlemen, I’m stepping away from throwing the Lamb County Leader-News paper route! Yeah, I’m not leaving the newspaper. I’m sure I’ll be here for many, many, many...more years to come..

A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales
 

At the start of the school year we set a goal, and folks, she did it!

 

Thursday afternoon when I picked up the kids from school, I noticed Emma running towards me a little faster than usual.

A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales
 
I think it’s time for an update! Since I’ve been able to find the time to write a column once again, I’ve been asked by several people how the kids are doing. Well, Diego, Emma and Clarissa are doing great. They are growing, quickly, and still as hard-headed as their mother (I love you Jessica). Believe me when I say, none of that comes from me. Really. I wouldn’t lie about that. Diego is enjoying fifth grade and still concentrating on good grades and going to college. I’m serious. He’s 10-years-old, and he’s already talking about college.

A Cup of Joe

By Joe Gonzales

 

This past Tuesday morning, I had a moment of clarity.

 

It was so profound, that when it happened, I felt like a light bulb suddenly flickered on in my head.

A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales

 

Five issues into our re-designed Lamb County Leader-News, and I’ve yet had the time to write a column! See, I’d rather just say I hadn’t written a column because I’ve been so busy. Saying that makes my laziness sound so much more justified.

What’s your Dream?

By Tanner Wilson
If you had the power to make our world exactly as you wish, what would it look like?
I thought about that question this week. For me, I might want all restaurants to offer all you can eat! (I might also have to wish that cholesterol numbers didn’t matter and that Ice Cream was a healthy food) I might wish that the temperature never dropped below freezing and never rose above 80 degrees. But in the end these are all petty things. What really is our hope and dream, for our lives, nation, and county?

Things Could Have Been Worse…

By Dr. Don Newbury

 

We mortals aren’t much good when routines—particularly those most mundane—are interrupted.

 

Men who refuse to accept this claim as “you-can-take-it-to-thebank” stuff—or even to the pawn shop—are urged to take a simple test on which my case can rest: The next time you dress, try putting your other leg in first.

‘Minds’s Eye’ Vision 20/20….

by Dr. Don Newbury

 

You may recall “been there/ done that” experiences differently. If so, be my guest. Mine is a mundane wish that you close out the old year as you choose. It is, after all, your life, and only a few hours remain before peals of 2017 bells are heard. During an aborted springtime trip to San Diego—one of the world’s most beautiful cities—I beheld the grandeur with just one eye. It was a strange way to awaken that fateful morning. Loss of half my vision overnight was not anticipated.

Takin’ A Timeout

By Joe Gonzales

 

Well, this past weekend was cold!

 

Nice warm day Friday, and then colder than cold can be both Saturday and Sunday.

 

Living in West Texas, one should be used to the everchanging weather, but, I’m not. And I don’t know if I’ll ever be used to it.
