The “Star” invites its readers to share stories about Bev that will be placed on her “Burner” space as we begin to reach closure and deal with her passing.  Please send your story (suitable for printing, of course) to editor@fortbendstar.com It is with my deepest sympathy that I write this note regarding a pioneer and […]

I missed Father’s Day…. But that’s okay. I miss my father today and every day. My father was a long, tall, laconic Texas rancher, who until the day he died at 84, still ducked to get through any door, accustomed as he was to houses with smaller doors that were hard to get his 6’7” […]

DEATH BY AFRICAN VIOLET…..I had a bad time at my house this past week. First, a full liquid laundry soap container which contained about 2 gallons, fell off the dryer and spilled all over the utility room floor. Then my grandson opened the refrigerator and a glass jar of raspberry jam jumped out and broke […]

There had better not be any crime in Sugar Land….. I have often said that Sugar Land has way too many cops.  I say this not because I want to commit crimes, but because I want my taxes to go down. Drive by any crime scene or even any traffic stop, and you will see  4-6 Sugar […]

A note from Beverly about Bev’s Burner I got so many cards and letters from readers begging me not to quit that it dawned on me that I had left the wrong impression in my last column when I ended it with “goodbye.” Actually I was sort of “ticked off” after I had written the […]

I need to apologize to my readers. I thought I could sit at home and nurse myself back to health, continuing my weekly column most weeks. But for the past couple of weeks I’ve made some real mistakes which tells me it will not be as easy as all that. First, I endorsed Anna Gonzales and […]

The ABCs of elections…..Saturday’s school board election in Lamar CISD (Richmond and Rosenberg’s school district) which promised to be hotly contested turned out to be downright trashy. Let me tell you how. A brother/sister duo, Rodney Vannerson and sis Karen Vannerson Pearson Vannerson got involved with recruiting candidates and raising money to help candidates. Rodney […]

Problem solved…..A few weeks ago I was griping about not being able to access the county’s web site because I had a Mac, and the county’s web site didn’t like it.  I complained to Annie Elliott, the county’s district clerk, who was in possession of the files I wanted to view on line. Finally someone […]

Time was………..Several years ago I used to write about how our Fort Bend County Commissioners didn’t like to buy things unless it called for 4-16 wheels under their butts. You know like cars and motor graders. I particularly wrote about them in relation to county clerk Dianne Wilson trying to make commissioners court understand that she […]

District Clerk’s office discriminates….I fussed about this several years ago. The problem is I can’t do any research on the county’s web site because it doesn’t like MACs. Our whole office has nothing but MACs. Most newspapers are like that. MACs had the best graphics programs early in the computer era. So to do research […]
