Hostas are a secret weapon for those of us with shady gardens. They come in crazy combination of shapes, textures and colors. You can look for them with a wide variety of leaf shapes, too – heart-shaped, oval, lance-shaped, round – and shiny, dull, smooth or textured. The colors vary from blue to bright green to yellow to red to whites.

I have given much thought to a Father’s Day message for all the wonderful men that deserve to be treated very special on this, their weekend. I have long thought that dads often got a bum deal when compared to the lavish celebrations planned for mothers, and I wanted to do something to help equalize the holidays.

Mention the name Lamar University Press and the first thing people think of is the university newspaper, which makes sense, but only because the average citizen is unaware that Lamar has an actual literary press. The recent name change to Lamar University Literary Press has helped clear the confusion, but there is still the matter of spreading the word about Lamar’s hidden gem and the history behind how it came into being.

For the time being, the recreational red snapper season is closed in federal wat

The recreational red snapper fishing season is closed once again after a grueling nine days – most of which were too rough for many boats to go offshore. But we did get a huge break. Out of the goodness of their heart NOAA Fisheries extended the season an extra two days because of the lack of fishing opportunity we had due to Tropical Storm Colin. They are so nice, and so out of contact with the real world.
