Home Country

The first cold nights sent Billy indoors. Aunt Ada always had room on the couch for Billy. It was different now, of course, since Desdemona passed away. She was good, for a cat. Now there was just Billy and the other cat, Boots, to share the couch.
 
Billy was no dummy. In the past three years or so, since he became the official town dog, he not only knew his duties, but his options as well.

I have learned so much during this school board campaign.

I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to meet so many people in our community and discuss their concerns and support for our schools.

I am grateful to live in a town of people who care about our schools, students and staff.

By Fr. Glenn Jones

A happy Veterans Day weekend to all of you veterans out there! … most especially to you who have been ordered to, and have endured, the trials and tribulations of combat zones. And, even more especially, to all of you who have physical and/or mental scars attesting to your courage and sacrifice more than any badge or medal or parade ever could. Thank you so much for your service to our nation and, ultimately, to her people.

And … it’s a doubly special day for Marines every year.

Posts From The Road: Luckenbach, Texas Where Everybody’s Somebody...

Post Office: The post office, general store, and bar were all located in this building when Luckenbach was established in the 1800s. The post office was decommissioned in 1971 but the building retains the post office sign today. The general store and bar are still very active. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com

Hats and Hondo: A display of hats for sale in the general store  is centered around a painting of Hondo Crouch who purchased Luckenbach and lived there from 1970 until his death in 1976. Much of the folklore and vibe of the town can be attributed to Hondo Crouch.
