After reading the front page story titled Housing Enthusiasm (Wednesday 10/9), I was surprised by some of the conclusions that were noted. While we all agree that housing in Kerrville is not inexpensive, according to national statistics we index at 86 against the nation at 100. Using median …

I can’t believe that it is October and it’s still 90+ degrees.  I am ready for some cool weather for football season.  So, if you too are trying to beat the heat, come to the Dietert Center where it is cool and comfortable for some fun, food, entertainment, and friendship.  Our Dining room o…

Returning to the States in 1980, we bought and began using our first computer. University computer labs were far ahead of us by then, developing mini-networks to communicate with each other and ARPANET was created for the Pentagon to bind together 70 mini-networks around the world, the forer…

With the Kerrville Triathlon Festival in town last weekend there were going to be some road and lane closures to accommodate the cycling portions of the event’s various races. The biggest impact was closing the cross street at Sidney Baker and Water Street, which caused a significant backup,…

This week on the Daily Times’ website we ask readers their opinion about the proposed Kerrville 2050 plan, which would help the city reshape its zoning and planning practices. The City Council and city staff have worked quickly to implement the plan.  Just some of the details on the plan inc…

When it comes to the Olympics, especially the summer games, I’m sort of a junkie. I could watch it all day long, and when the 2020 Tokyo games come around, I will be glued to the TV.

Retirements, goodbyes and see ya laters are always hard to experience — especially with those who are so loved by volunteers and co-workers. This month, the Dietert family has one of each of those transitions in life to announce.

Some of you may recall C.S. Lewis’s humorous “Screwtape Letters,” where the Devil and his henchman, Screwtape, cook up ways to get people off track. I’m not Lewis, but thought I’d try an updated version. First, here’s God talking to Satan in the book of Job: “Satan, what have you been up to?…
