Takin’ A Time out

By Joe Gonzales

 

I have bad luck. Or at least I think I do. Or it could also be that sometimes I don’t think things all the way through. With that, I learned a very valuable adult life lesson this past week. One that will never happen again. Let me tell you what I’m talking about. When we purchased our home a few years ago it came with a home warranty that covered all appliances and other household items.

Takin’ A Timeout

Whoa! Is anyone’s head still spinning after election Tuesday? Mine is. I was glued to my television and my wireless phone (on Twitter) Tuesday night trying to keep up with what was happening. Is she going to win? Is he going to win? I had no idea. And what we all found out, neither did the experts.

Takin’ A Timeout

by Joe Gonzales 
Well, the season for the Goalbusters came to an end Thursday night. My little team of soccer players gave it their all this season, but were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round. But what a season it was. My team of Goalbusters consisted of: Emma Gonzales, Isaac Salazar, Joshua Sierra, Janella Rodriguez, Jaelynn Tijenna, Aden Martinez, Ryan Silvas, Aaron Moore, Jazzi Ledesma, Aubrey Lopez and Ifryan Alfaro.

Is your life in a routine?

By Marco A. Colina

 

This can happen to anyone, no matter what your agenda is like, it doesn’t matter how your time is invested or wasted. Naturally there are activities that are part of our routine, like going to work, paying our debts, out daily meals. Even in these we should review and see if we are doing it as a routine or we can make changes.

Takin’ A Timeout

By  Joe Gonzales
 
I don’t really like talking about politics. Never have, and I guarantee you, I probably never will. But, after what’s been going on the past months and weeks with the 2016 Presidential Election, well, it’s impossible to not talk about it. I’ve been stopped a couple of times the past week or so, once at the grocery store and once at the gas station, for a quick conversation.

Words Can Hurt Us...

by Dr. Don Newbury 
The old adage first appeared in an American publication in 1862. Generally, we have gone along with the declaration that sticks and stones can be “bone-breakers.” That words are skating by without harmful effects, however, hasn’t been true for decades-maybe never. When they first saw the light of day, words weren’t assaulting us so often and in so many ways as they are currently. Yep, words—in addition to sticks and stones—pack powerful punches, too. How about the current exchanges by presidential candidates? I won’t go there, given that one of the purposes of this column is to elicit smiles. There’s little to smile about these days when political fires are stoked by words often poorly chosen, but boldly expressed. (Many politicians’ words, in fact, were whispered—or deleted—not so long ago.)

State Capital HIGHLIGHTS

By Ed Sterling

 

AUSTIN — Texas’ top three officeholders on Oct. 12 instructed the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to improve the protection of children at risk of abuse. With recent data showing the agency is struggling to see children in a timely manner, Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and House Speaker Joe Straus sent a letter to Department of Family and Protective Services Commissioner Hank Whitman, calling for immediate action to more quickly help vulnerable children.

Hope for Days to Come...

by Dr. Don Newbury 
I don’t know who first said it; perhaps it was the late radio newsman Paul Harvey. Whatever, it wasn’t dissected by WikiLeaks, a come-along lately “source” that sounds like a product “do-it-yourselfers” might use to repair automobile radiators in the comfort of their very own garages. Anyways, Harvey occasionally used the admonition to encourage his millions of listeners from sea to shining sea. “In times like these, it is important to remember there have always been times like these.”
