Q. I let a friend borrow the extra key to my apartment and he lost it. Can I require my landlord to change my locks?

A. Under the law, a landlord has an obligation to change the locks at his expense when a new tenant moves in. After that time, the landlord must change the locks whenever the tenant requests, as often as the tenant wants. The tenant, however, must pay the costs of installing the new locks. In other words, you can require your landlord to change your locks; however, you must pay the costs.

Ken Meyer of Conroe remembers their sacrifice, as he must. Some things are simply too sacred not to be remembered and honored.

I have often, over the years, written about the power of words — both those that hurt and wound and those that help and heal. The Book of James teaches about the tongue and how powerful it is when used in anger or insult. I read Chapter 3 three times this week because I wanted to understand it as best I could.

I have been following the progress of the new Folsom Walking Trail with much anticipation since reading an article by Kevin King back in April 2013 in The Examiner. Kevin let us know that “plans to construct a hike and bike trail alongside Folsom Drive and between Major Drive have taken steps forward.” The City Council at that time approved parking and access to the easement for construction and was looking for lowest bidders to get the job started.
