If you have spent considerable time in Texas, chances are you have seen “Lonesome Dove,” written by Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry of Archer City, Texas. If you are a true Texan, you’ve probably seen it more than once, and you just may have seen the other three adaptions in the series. Keeping the chronological order straight is a task to be conquered with careful reading and note taking.

Hi, my name is Arnie, and I am grateful for all the nice people at Beaumont Animal Services: the animal control officer who found me, the judge who didn’t let my old owners take me back, the kennel staff who give me food every day and keep my kennel clean. I am grateful for my bed. Would you believe my old bed was a pile of wood pallets? I am grateful that I will never have to feel the weight of a chain hanging from my neck again. I am grateful for all of the nice visitors who stop by my kennel, and the volunteers who give me lots of treats!

Fishing along the coast kicked into high gear this past weekend, with good numbers of trout, flounder and even king mackerel being caught.

One of the best fishing reports I’ve got is from Sabine Lake guide Jerry Norris. His top catches of trout, along with a few reds, have been around the rigs east of the jetties in 20 to 25 feet of water.

The historic events that have transpired in the nearby cities of Dallas and Baton Rouge have affected every Texan. Many that have long been silent have found voices and have spoken out both verbally and in print. Every person I know has an opinion.
