Impressions of May

In the cool breeze of a sunny May morning local wildflower fields beckon. The songbirds are back from Central and South America, crisscrossing the air in brightest streaks of color like the red cardinals and tanagers. Below them flowers sway in the breeze, opening their petals to the sun, framed in the long thick green grass brought about by recent heavy rains. Exotic garden seedlings grow among shady crops of trees while the native flowers cluster together, attracting butterflies and bees. The colors make for a fantastic carpet which one's imagination may attribute to the machinations of industriously weaving elves. Far enough from traffic, the birds' chirping, clacking and singing to attract mates are the only distinct sounds one hears. Breathing the perfume of fresh grass, still wet, and feeling the breeze on our skin we know that summer is just around the corner but we have still a respite from the heat.

We must hold council members accountable
Posted: April 30, 2016

I urge Kemah residents to vote against Proposition No. 1. Claims made about the mayor being the problem in Kemah are false. The mayors of Kemah are elected by a majority and have little power without city council agreement. Therein lies a long existing problem — city council.
