I’ve had a love/hate relationship with crab traps for years. I love to use them to catch big blue crabs and the occasional stone crab on Sabine Lake and Keith Lake. Conversely, I hate to have to get out of the boat and untangle a mangled derelict crab trap that’s been wound up on the prop of my outboard.

Jackie Steen, Master Gardener president

Did your mama always say, “Can’t get something for nothing”? Well maybe you can after all. For the second year, the Campbell Forestry group has partnered with the Jefferson County Master Gardener group to supply tree seedlings to our county. There is no cost to anyone. Yep, the seedlings are free.

James Richard “Rick” Perry has been governor of this state for more than 12 years, and there is mounting evidence that he has overstayed his welcome. Never the most popular figure in state politics, he only ascended to the governor’s mansion when George W. Bush was elected president in 2000. Since then he has managed to hang on largely due to political circumstance. He won reelection in 2006 with only 39 percent of the vote in a divided field. When he ran again in 2010 after first signaling he wouldn’t be a candidate, it caught Sen.
