Still a country girl My son Michael and I have returned from a weekend trip to Llano to completely close down my daughter Sherry’s (who died last October) house in Llano. Llano is a lovely little town, albeit dry, at the edge of the Hill Country. I’m so sad Sherry never got to live there […]

I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but……A recent Attorney General’s Opinion had some relation to an incident in Fort Bend County of a few years ago. At the time, I asked the District Attorney and the County Attorney to ask for an Attorney General’s Opinion, but they didn’t. Guess they didn’t want to […]

Another day in Paradise I am currently in Cozumel, Mexico. I know. I said after my last trip to California that my traveling days were over, but I’m here as a granny nanny while Michael and Lisa scuba EVERY day. Emphasis on the every because from looking at all work they have to do and […]

More better politics One of the “advantages” to being an independent voter is that you get mail from both camps. Last week, I got mailouts from Jacquie Chaumette, Rick Miller, and a picture of Michelle Obama and the two girls. Oh, Barack was in there also but the note was from Michelle. But I was […]

Local Politics, part 3 I know you are probably tired of politics but I’m going to have to write about this until the run-off which is Tuesday, July 31. The reason I am going to have to write about it is that it is so important. We in Dist. 26 have had 25 years or […]

Local Politics, Part 2 Who is Rick Miller?…..I was researching when State Rep. candidate Rick Miller moved to Fort Bend County. My previous research revealed to me that he had only lived in Fort Bend for 12 years, and I remember when I was a practicing Republican that he just suddenly appeared on the scene. […]

Local Politics Part 1 I’ve been on vacation (since the O.J. trial) and haven’t written about the local primary results definitively. I’ll start correcting that today. Don’t know if you are interested, but it helps me get my mind around some of this stuff. District 26, first round A review of the primary results, mostly […]

Can’t buy me love, and apparently not a political race either. We have watched with amusement as soon-to-be-former Chief Deputy Craig Brady spent over half a million dollars and four years in an attempt to get elected sheriff of Fort Bend County. This is seven times the amount of money ever spent on a political […]

My butt hurts…..I had a real hard time writing this column this week due to the fact my butt hurts. It hurts because as of the writing of this column I’m sitting on pins and needles about the local Republican primary. I could care less who is elected president. No matter how crazy local Republicans […]

Election news….The sheriff department’s budget accounts for over 25% of the county’s budget and is the largest expenditure of the county. It has almost doubled in the past eight years, although one has to remember that county commissioners are complicit in any budget deal. One of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make about […]
