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.”

Takin’ A Timeout

by Joe Gonzales 
For me, the gas gauge in my pickup is different from everyone else’s. E means ‘enough’ and ‘F’ means, ‘Far’...in that I can drive far. For years, anytime Jessica rides with me in my pickup, the first thing she looks at is my gas gauge. “You need to put gas in your truck.” I usually reply with, “I have more than enough” or “don’t worry about it, I have more than enough fuel!” Folks, for the past 12 years, I’ve always been right (for the most part).

Time for a change...

By Tanner Wilson

 

I absolutely love the changes in the air. Feeling the cool breeze has been refreshing for my evening walks, plus the radiant sun puts a glow on the changing leaves. Most people don’t like change. I have heard the only person that does like change is a baby with a dirty diaper. But even though we tend to resist change, many people feel that if they could simply change their job, their house, or their spouse, then they would find happiness.
