The Feb. 15-16 edition of The Kerrville Daily Times reported on the latest applicants to apply for city council positions. They reported that George Baroody applied but was not allowed to be on the ballot because of a recently passed charter amendment that does not allow persons to run for a…

While reading the editorial page in the Feb. 18 edition, I was very dismayed with the commentary shared by the Kerr County Patriots Club and the race for the Kerr County Sheriff. To say the results of this debacle is skewed would be an understatement. If you are going to do something like th…
With less than a week before their first performance, the inaugural class of In The Moment Improv did not even have a name. No one was worried. After all, it is an “improv” group, and stepping on stage immersed in uncertainty is sort of their raison d’etre.
We had an exciting Valentine’s Day here at the Dietert Center. We had a special visit from the Hill Country Homeschool Association kiddos who brought valentines for all of our dining room participants. Those kids worked really hard on all the handmade cards, and the seniors were so delighted…
The Political Research Committee (PRC) of the Kerr County Patriot’s Club has finalized the results of their comparative rating of the six candidates running for Kerr County Sheriff. The assessment is not intended to endorse any candidate, but to evaluate relative strengths and provide voter…

The Old Farmer’s Almanac said it was time for me to plant my potatoes and corn. But the weather forecast called for a gullywasher. That’s a fancy weather term for a lot of rain.
There were a lot of facts and figures thrown out at the recent Hill Country Economic Summit, but there are a few that we just can’t wrap our heads around — that retail study being the biggest.
There are so many events that represent the best of us, but then there are those events that grab us with such powerful emotion that it's hard to let go of the meaning of what we just witnessed.

After the shortest awards season in decades, the 92nd annual Academy Awards will get underway Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The red carpet is being rolled out two to three weeks earlier than usual in a bid to freshen up a ceremony and potentially boost ratings.
We gave up conventional and cable TV 25 years ago. But for Christmas, I received access to one of the streaming services, so I’ve been revisiting series from the 1980s and ’90s, the last time I watched anything. One that popped up was an episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” where the…
It appears to me that the current leaders in control of transforming the city of Kerrville have their own private agendas. The members of the city council, as I recall, either work in or are associated with real estate. I have not read anything about a possible “conflict of interest” but I…
Probably the last thing that F. O’Neil Griffin thought when he embarked on giving money toward improving education in the Hill Country and across Texas, but that’s exactly what happened recently.
There's been some grousing about the state of food in the greater Kerrville area. So, we wanted to find out if people are interested in other choices when it comes to buying groceries even if we really love "That Green Sauce" from H-E-B.
Teamwork is essential to the success of an organization, family, sports team and even friendships. I am a big sports fan, especially with high school and college football. I am learning all about the new Spurs, but if you ask me about the former Spurs’ glory days, I can probably have a decen…
From those campaigning to be President of the United States, we haven’t heard much trumpeting of qualifications to lead the Free World. Do they and we just ignore that capacity until they’re in the job?
The new coronavirus outbreak is dominating headlines. More than 7,700 people have contracted the pneumonia-like illness since it was first reported last month, and more than 170 have died. China has imposed a quarantine for over 50 million people. The U.S. has confirmed five cases, all among…

On Saturday we published a commentary by Kerrville City Councilwoman Delayne Sigerman about the reality of the duties facing those who serve on the city council.
We’ve lived in Kerr County for 12 years. If you’ve lived anywhere else in the world, up until recently, you could starve to death in this county and it’s past time our restaurateurs and grocery stores upped their game.
After the Kerrville City Council’s unanimous decision to allow 510 homes to be constructed in the city we saw a lot of vitriol, plenty of misinformation and some sadness that the city was definitely going to change.
Musketeer, fire breather or wizard, it’s always fascinating what motivates a person who leads an otherwise conventional life to don the garb and persona of a character living in the middle ages.
There are only a couple spots left for the presentation by Peggy Pilkenton, RN, who serves as our Dementia Care Coordinator, on the Caring for Someone with Dementia: Family and Friends Caregiver Training on Mondays and Wednesdays, Feb 3-19. If you are caring for a loved one with memory loss,…
Last week, Jim Lehrer passed away, well-known from the PBS’s MacNeill/Lehrer Evening News. As I read his biography, I was amazed at things in common with my late husband, Joe Benham. They were both born in 1934, got into journalism in high school editing school papers (Lehrer in San Antonio;…
