Mark Henry is the one who spent millions of dollars and lost in multiple courts before the Supreme Court decision on one small part of the whole story, the setting of the salary being the Commissioner's Court's responsibility. The original issue was the firing of the court coordinator which …

Maybe Faircloth listens to some of his constituents but many, people who worked hard to put him in office, are saying he doesn't. Is supporting local government by voting to exempt the city of Galveston from a rollback tax vote by the people good for his constituents? Faircloth will vote for…

Dredging would still be necessary on the east. As a former boater, I believe pleasure boaters are the ones using this pass and the lift bridge is used by sailboats. I don't remember seeing barges use it. If we are worried about tidal flush, the closure of Rollover Pass will be more detriment…

John Wayne Ferguson, you forgot to mention that at the request of mayor Yarborough and city manager Maxwell, Faircloth added an amendment to that tax bill exempting Galveston from the rollback vote for 3 years. He tried to make it 5. So on the whole Gulf coast Galveston wouldn't get to vote…

Diane Brodie commented on Flu brings dancing bears and fireworks

Not getting the fly shot is not illogical. The vaccine is ineffective, especially this year. Just ask those who got the soot and still got the flu. Go ahead of you want, and put some mercury in your brain too. I'll take my chances.

Incredible story. I've been out in the Gulf in a few storms, ducking water spouts but being thrown onto land is pretty wild. Thanks for the story.

JD Arnold, that's been tried for 2 years. 60% of the precinct chairs attended the meeting in what amounts to a vote of no confidence in the chair. If he spent as much time working with the elected members as he has recruiting opponents for them, they wouldn't be so disenfranchised and frustr…

Ms. Hatcher should consult with the Republican Party of Texas parliamentarian who confirmed everything done by the elected precinct chairs was in order, including calling a special meeting. At no time has the Chair's statutory duties been infringed upon. Duties of the pcs aren't being delega…

It's absurd to me to sign a contract before you know how you plan to manage the properties. Maybe we do it, maybe we sub it. We'll decide after we sign it, even knowing the Parks Board hasn't had the revenue and the county won't reimburse them. It sounds like the county has a beef with the P…

Maybe Gustafson didn't feel it was "healthy" to have a challenger in his own race, even though he recruited challengers for sitting precinct chairs who disagree with his leadership. Mrs. Waters is a proven Republican leader, organizer and fundraiser.
