Tonight is the Beach Patrol BBQ! This is the primary fundraiser for our nonprofit, which partners with the beach patrol to support initiatives we either can’t afford or which are not appropriate to spend governmental funds on. For example, we give two scholarships a year from the nonprofit a…
If you blinked, you missed the red snapper season this year. It started one minute after midnight June 1, and ended at the same time June 4. Last year, recreational fishermen had nine days to go fishing in federal waters, this year it was only three. Both are an insult to private anglers, es…

Throughout the Trump-Russia investigation, the core question was whether President Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to try to influence the 2016 election. If there were proof of that, the effect on Trump’s presidency would have been devastating, and possibly fatal.
When I came to Galveston as a bride, it was not the first time I had visited those golden shores. Not by a long shot. And I still remember traveling south from Sherman with my father, my mother and my sister, summer after summer.
Political rhetoric is causing many to burn energy that could be put to better and more productive use. For example, congresswoman Maxine Waters, said that FBI Director Comey should be fired. But that was back when Obama was president. Back then she said Comey had “no credibility.” Now that T…

Sir Walter Scott’s epic admonition, “Oh, what a web we weave when first we practice to deceive,” perfectly describes the furor over President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Folks have always said that art imitates life. And that is certainly true when it comes to the funny papers. I assume you agree with me that comic strips can be considered art.

Last week, President Trump fired the director of the FBI, James Comey, who was in Los Angeles when he learned about his firing from news reports. Team Trump has argued that the timing of the sudden dismissal had absolutely nothing to do with the heating up of the Russia-Trump investigation. …
