Letters to the Editor: Fort Bend GOP’s response to Sudhalter’s editorial

Dear Sir, I am writing regarding your article in the FB Star last week about Representative Rick Millers’ (House District 26) Bill removing the ability of municipalities to punish businesses for expressing their opinions.  I totally support the bill which protects our first amendment right of free speech.  He is attempting to right a terrible […]

This sweet girl is a shepherd mix who has been cooped up at the shelter for too long. Sweet and playful, she’d make the perfect pet for just about anyone.

COMMENTARY: The trials of traveling and technology

Lynn Ashby

SOUTH OF SEVEN OAKS — “Turn left at the next peacock crossing.” The Voice Lady in the dashboard is still talking to me. “Make a U-turn across the median.” And so it goes. I have a new Global Positioning System or GPS. Well, it’s new to me. I understand Vasquez de Coronado used one when […]

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Changes needed for Missouri City…

Due to recent events, I, like many other Missouri City residents, feel very optimistic about the future of our town. As reported by this and other newspapers, various City administrators and elected officials are leaving or may change with the upcoming elections.

A deeper look into the 40 acres

Lynn Ashby

So you want you or your kid or that cousin wearing the ankle monitor to get into The University of Texas at Austin. You’ll have better luck with Harvard, Yale or the College of Cardinals. Better yet, become a state official, endow a chair (and table, too, the profs need them) or simply move to […]

Thank you, Officer

Thank You Officer A. Montaya of Missouri City Police Department Yesterday morning, as I turned right from Texas Parkway and drove down Buffalo Run I noticed a police vehicle with it’s lights blinking but no unfortunate driver ahead receiving a ticket. As I drove a little further, I passed a car being pushed by a […]

Railing against commuter train

Commuter rail for who? Pay billions if not trillions to watch the toy trains go by with nothing but homeless people aboard. If that doesn’t bother you, what about the traffic? The current train along highway 90 does enough mischief now with road. Do we really need more grade-crossing of trains? Beyond annoyance, they also […]

MISSION UN-POSSIBLE

Lynn Ashby

MOSCOW — No, this one is in deep East Texas, a pleasant little town and the Gateway to Alto. But don’t tell anyone I’m here, especially the Texas Legislature. Let’s start at the beginning. Remember the Alamo? That is a question, not a battle cry. The old mission will soon be the One World Government […]
