Santa Claus is surely going to reward area high school golfers for their efforts this fall; as they head toward the Christmas break, visions of sugar plums, eagles and birdies are surely dancing in their heads. And maybe a new driver or putter.
Old Man Winter is returning and not much likely will take place on the fishing scene for the next few days. Last weekend, it was a different story as prime fall fishing took place.
Until the Texans can consistently win the games they’re supposed to win on top of picking up big wins like their one last week over the Patriots, not only should the national media not take the Texans seriously as a contender, but neither should anyone else.

Four of the six Galveston County teams competing Thursday in the 87th annual Carlisle-Krueger Classic, co-hosted by Clear Creek and Clear Lake high schools, went 1-1 on Day 1 and will enter the silver bracket Friday, and one after going 2-0 will be going for gold.
