The final cut...

Babe Banner retires after 63 years of being a barber

By JOE GONZALES

After 63 years, Babe Banner said it was just time.

And when you listen to him talk about this decision, it’s one you know he made with no regret.

“I was sitting in my barbershop yesterday (Thursday) and I wasn’t doing anything...and I thought to myself, I need be taking care of some business, but I can’t go off and leave the shop,” said Banner. “That was my problem, I liked to barber so well, that I stayed here instead of going and doing other things that needed to be done.”

Banner said he thought to himself and said, “You’ve got to go...it’s time.” “That was it. I said to myself that this has to be it,” said Banner.

Texas’ Archery-Only Hunting Season was opened Saturday

Bowhunters might need to adjust their game plan for this weekend’s (Saturday, Sept. 29) archery-only white-tailed deer season, due to recent rains, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The advance scouting report could be out the window.

“Hunting might be a little tough with the exceptional rainfall in September that has created a giant food plot of native forage across the state,” said Alan Cain, TPWD whitetail deer program leader. “Deer may be visiting the feeders less frequently with the abundant forage, so hunters might rely on information gathered recently on their trail cameras to help narrow down windows of opportunity as to when deer are visiting feeder and blind locations.”
