As I write this review, the clouds gather in the sky again for another spring shower. Such is life in Southeast Texas! The book I’m reading this month, Desert Light, offers respite from the rain and takes readers into the beautiful but rugged landscape of West Texas. Odessa poet Loretta Diane Walker, a music teacher by day, lends readers her finely tuned ear and her artistic eye to explore this region of Texas and how it can be both lovely and ugly all at once.

Insurance is a complex yet important aspect of our lives. From homeowners insurance to car insurance, we don’t want to deal with it, but we need it. These necessities seem to be out of our control, and in many cases beyond our understanding. But Bobby Counts, branch owner and agent of Bobby Counts Insurance believes it doesn’t need to be like that.

There is no argument that Chris Jericho is a bona fide star. In fact, he has probably become a household name at this point. Jericho has been on top of the professional wrestling world for years and now his band Fozzy is making a legitimate run as a major player in the rock world.

Beaumont Civic Ballet wants to take you back to the time when music had meaning. Artists were not only creating music that has gone on to withstand the test of time, but each lyric and note was from the heart and soul. These artists went on to change the culture of music, which can still be felt today.

This is an old story, but I heard it recently, and loved it all over again. A young man gave the first sermon of his life at my son’s church and I drove in to hear him speak and to support him and his family, whom I had long loved. He did a remarkable job, was well prepared, had studied for hours, and he seemed quite comfortable in the pulpit addressing the rather large crowd. The people responded warmly to his message.

The young man told an interesting story in his opening remarks and right away, he got and held the attention of his audience members...

A recent trip to a for the beautiful wedding of Monet, the gorgeous daughter of a friend of mine, Norma Motiee, will find me always remembering a few things: the lovely church and service, the chic looking guests from Beaumont and all corners of the world, the festive 15-minute walk down the cobblestone streets led by a mariachi band to the after-party, the views in all directions of this UNESCO protected city, and the lovely fields of lavender we could smell all over town. The lavender aroma permeated the air and scented the parks.

Corky fishing lures

Without a doubt, the best lure you can tie on and fish for trophy trout right now is a Corky. It’s the lure Jim Wallace used to catch the state record rod and reel trout weighing 13.11 pounds. It’s a classic mullet imitator, which is why it’s so good at catching big trout from Sabine Lake on down to the Laguna Madre. There are three types of these lures made: the Paul Brown Original, the Fat Boy and the Soft Dine.
