Quick Housekeeping and Navigation Note for Somervell County Salon

As mentioned last week, Somervell County Salon has been up and running as a news and commentary site for over 9 years. As you might imagine, I started it, and it's been run and programmed by me (SQL Server and classic ASP code), a female. Hah, can you imagine, in Texas, a MAN naming a site Salon? Of course, I mean, salon in the french sense of a periodic gathering of people for the purpose of socializing and discussion. Anyway, although we have had, at various times, others who were main posters, these are the main posters at this time. You can easily see on each post which person is repre.....

Re: 501a Slush Fund- Ray Reynolds Says he is not following the *Letter of the Law*

Video Now, let's think about this, The contract, which 4 of the board members at the Somervell County Hospital District choose to vote against following, specifically spells out that giving money to the 501a is optional, that the doctors request money, that it has to be granted to them, and then that the doctors have to come back and SHOW that they used the money as they said they .....

The Zoo at the Somervell County Hospital District Board Meetings

because, in my opinion, Chip Harrison, board president, doesn't control the meetings and require both the board and the audience to be professional, to be quiet or leave the room if they can't seem to exercise some self-control.  Nothing wrong with heated and spirited conversations at the board level, but this is ridiculous.  (Have said before, I have only attended one poste.....

Ooops! Glen Rose Reporter Got It Wrong re: August 21 2014 Tax Rate discussion -Correction Ahead

I wasn't at the Somervell County Hospital Board meeting on August 21 2014.  My information comes usually from watching the video that's been recorded, from open records, or plain old discussions about what happens at the meetings. I didn't look for some days at the video of the part of the discussion about setting the tax rate because, frankly, I don't like watching the rude a.....

Why CAN'T Kirsten Gillibrand Talk about Sexist Congressmen IF She WANTS?

Time Magazine She still considers herself the “loud mouth” and “fog horn” her father teasingly called her as a child, but Sen. Ki.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for Sep 9 2014

I love this time of year. Weather is cooler in the early morning and I hear, at Fossil Rim, the red deer making their rutting sounds. I hope to see at least one more round of crape myrtle bloomings. Hub and I have some outside work to do, including scooping out the pond- over 10 years of ducks, geese,and erosion have put in a foot or more of sludge. Can't wait for that to be done, since then w.....
