You said your latest poll response of Trump's local approval rating showing as low as it was surprised you, and were taking it with a grain of salt because he carried the area in 2016 and will likely do it again. Maybe the election results and the approval ratings aren't as connected as you …

Your opinion poll is interesting. However, I object to characterizing the response to the last question as possibly due to "gaming" by anti-Trump supporters. We are in a different world than 2016 and plenty of folks are unsatisfied with the President's response to the crisis.  Don't second g…

I was horrified when I heard of the jailing of Shelly Luther, a hairdresser in Dallas, for reopening her beauty salon. What has the “land of the free” come to when American citizens can be treated in such a manner?

While The Kerrville Daily Times has a reputation of being right-of-center in its political bias, this has strongly been demonstrated over the past couple of issues. First it was the denigration of readers in the poll on May 5 that showed Trump receiving low ratings (41%) calling the results …

The “Vivid Memory” piece in the May 9-10 Daily Times recounted the memories of Dennis Doyle regarding the May 4, 1970, shootings at Kent State University. While I have no reason to doubt that Mr. Doyle was on the campus at the time of the shootings, I question his stated reason for having vi…

Monday I received a card in the mail that reminded me of the late '50s. Several of us, growing up in San Antonio, would take a dime and go to the local Lone Star Ice House. We would get a Milky Way, cost a nickel, and a Coca Cola, cost a nickel. Then one day an ounce and a half smaller Milky…

With all due respect, restaurants are mandated, along with their food handlers, to be certified by the state of Texas to keep customers safe and healthy, virus or no virus. It has been proven, masks and gloves could be worse for your health and give a false sense of security.

I'm deeply concerned by Texas's rush to reopen over the advice of experts in public health. Countries like Germany, which had implemented far stricter lockdowns and far more extensive testing, have experienced a spike in cases after loosening restrictions; there is no evidence to suggest the…

We just took our recycle bin, newspapers, etc. to the dump on April 30. We usually go once a week. There was a sign on the window that stated as of May 9 they were no longer going to accept recyclables there and had no information as to where we could take it after that date. We live outside…

The local gas prices are literally "highway" robbery. The state average price for regular unleaded as of April 26 is $1.48 with the lowest price being $.99 per gallon. I don't know who is "fixing" the gas prices locally, but I for one will be notifying the Texas Railroad Commissioner's offic…

It might be time to begin questioning the price of gasoline in Kerrville. Wholesale gas prices have been falling for many weeks with no response from local providers. Is this price fixing? Price gouging? San Antonio gas prices are as low as $1.39. All over the country prices are falling. Wha…
