My reference should obviously be toward the forums. It should be a given that all published material will have actual names. But on the forums, I don't think there is any other online newspaper that requires a full name to be attached to comments made. I could really careless what you think …

I will not be posting to your paper anymore after this. I served in Tal Afar and Ramadi, Iraq in 2006-2007. Several months ago my FB page asked if I knew a person. His page and name was in Arabic, but his face looked familiar. I looked at his page and it was full of ISIS pics and videos. He …

I'm glad to see this story was done for them. I was just thinking about let Laura know about them. They're a good bunch of barbers that take great pride in their work. When I was little, I remember going to my uncles barber shop in Lamarque. It was the same thing at Troy's as it was there. T…

Thanks! An emergency clinic? Yes it's needed in town, but I was hoping for an Aldi's or maybe a Krispy Crème there. At least something will be there now.

Hey Laura, I did notice that the old Busybee Café in TC (next to Texas First Bank) has been tore down and something new is being developed on it. Any idea what that may be?

I sat in on a town hall meeting in Lamarque back in 2007 when they first proposed a rail service from Galveston to Houston. It would work if you had the riders for it, but there is not enough. If Galveston, and all the stops in between, had a bus system like Houston does, it could work. I li…
