Of all the things that I read, hear, or see about the problems in the black ethnic community,  they all indicate their challenges have been created by the white ethnic community’s systemic racism.  I hear too many whites apologizing to blacks and saying, “What can we do to make things better…

A friend of mine commented on Facebook on Saturday their surprise that the courthouse did not have any flags out for the holiday weekend. I thought maybe they were waiting until the 4th to put them out. However, I noticed that there was really no sign of the holiday in Kerrville. Neither the…

A divisive July 4th holiday address was delivered at Mt. Rushmore. Adding insult to injury, President Trump never asked permission from the Oglala Sioux; an independent nation, to hold the event on land by the Supreme Court ruled was stolen by the US.

The flat earthers and science deniers apparently are not satisfied with the national embarrassment of Texas having to compete with Arizona and Florida for having the largest increases in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, which in turn is directly attributable to Gov. Abbott’s and Lt. Gov. Dan …

Thank you for the July 4 front page article on patriotism. In this age of a poorly educated public you did a great job of summation in one half of a page. I lament almost daily the lack of knowledge I encounter when talking to people about our founding, the constitution and our system of gov…

I read with interest the front page article “Development Countdown” 10 new discoveries about the pandemic on July 7. There is no by line on the article and no indication it is an editorial, so who wrote this article? Much of the information in the article is anecdotal, not researched science…

Those of you who don’t want to ever wear a mask and don’t care about your neighbor whether it be an adult, child, someone who is compromised from cancer or some other illness — at the very least, you can choose to pick up groceries and not go into the stores where the rest of us don’t mind w…

I want to know if there is a way for us to thank H-E-B for being supportive to our community in enforcing mask wearing starting July 1. This way more than we can say for our Commissioners who are supposed to be looking out for us as a whole.

I support our County Commissioners Court’s inaction concerning an order to businesses to require the wearing of face masks.  However, from your front page report and editorial of June 30, concerning the Kerr County Commissioners Court meeting and the quotes from commissioners there, it appea…

I was sorry that The Kerrville Daily Times got its important front page headline wrong concerning what happened at the County Commissioners’ Court about whether it should be mandatory for local businesses to require their employees and customers to wear face masks. It would have been helpful…

Full disclosure, I’m a Libertarian. Today I had to go to several stores. Home Depot customers have less than 25% masks. Wash Tub “masks encouraged “ but nada other than staff. Daddy Jim’s masks encouraged but only one customer (other than me) and staff nada on masks or gloves. Come on folks.…

Kerr County now (as of Monday night) has 83 active COVID cases, with two people in the hospital. The citizens of this town are against having policies to require masks in businesses. That there is “such a thing as personal responsibility” to quote one of the citizens. That does not seem to b…

The Times’ June 30 editorial was an excellent comprehensive look at what could have been offered at the County Commissioner’s open hearing on public opinion regarding the wearing of face masks in which you made a telling point about the absence of more informed testimony of medical and other…

Summer is here and locals and summer vacationers are splashing around in the Guadalupe River. Although monitoring the water quality of the river is a year-round job, the Upper Guadalupe River Authority implements additional programs in the summer that focus on the increased recreational use …

It appears Judge Kelly thinks dogs are worth more than veterans. Not to say that the dog rescue kennel in Kerrville is not worthy of funding because it is. However, you have to ask yourself what is the return on investment on it compared to the veteran community with respect to generating fu…

Well, it’s happening again. In 2018 and ’19, the mainstream media, liberal groups and individuals did their best to have Sean Hannity removed from Fox News for his conservative viewpoint. They did so by spinning his words in a negative light and trying to stop companies from running ads on h…

My hometown of Ashdown, Arkansas, had Walmart No. 17. They’ve since built a Super Center, but during my early teen years, it was a small store.

The coronavirus pandemic has made all of us rethink how we’re going about our business, and with that thinking, there has emerged some new ideas about moving forward when it comes to engaging with our community or customers.

Our veteran population of 5,000 plus is an economic engine for Kerr County. Not counting seasonal veteran residents, benefit income of various types is an estimated $8.5 million income per month to the veteran population, which in turn spends said income for housing, groceries, school and pr…

I totally disagree with the editorial board in their criticism of Mr. Belew. He is conservative BUT he does tell it just exactly as it is and he doesn't mince words but apparently the editor and her subjects don't like people telling it exactly as it is. I applaud Mr. Belew!

I take a bit of exception to your Editorial Board opinion on June 11, 2020 about Harley Belew. You say he can continue doing his radio show or continue being a public servant, but not both. I would say — not either. Belew’s platform as a radio host on public airwaves does not give him licens…
