It's been a terrific spring and summer, busy with a lot of projects, and now about midway done with all of them. I have some plans for this site in the next month or two, to make it more community interactive. Several months ago I disabled the anonymous commenting because it was attracting an inordinate amount of spam. I knew I was going to have limited time to keep up, so I altered the code b.....

UPDATED 9/8/2017 -GRISD Public School Supporting Christian Mission thru SchoolToolBox.com (2017)

Update: FFRF had written a letter to GRISD, which was answered by the law firm representing Glen Rose Independent School District. (Wayne Rotan was cc'd on this letter, dated August 18 2017) I'm glad that GRISD is doing the right thing. Still believe that there should be a stricter, more defined relationship between GRISD and Glen Rose PTO (which filing on the SOS is entirely outdat..... Read More

The City of Glen Rose audio records only one of their meetings, the regular Glen Rose Town Council meeting each month. They do not record special sessions, It's unclear if the other agencies of the City of Glen Rose, ie, the Preservation Board, Board of Adjustments, CVB Advisory Committee, Glen Rose Economic Development Board or Planning and Zoning actually record meetings.

You run for office. Someone doesn't like it that you won, and puts in a petition to remove you from office. The local county attorney, acting as the State of Texas, decides to legitimize the petition by joining it. Every aspect of the petition is based on the defendant's freedom of speech (or, falsely, erroneously including me, wife and blog owner of Somervell County Salon). The elected of..... Read More

Since Donald Trump Loves Confederate Statues so much, why not offer to put them at Trump Golf Course Clubs?|
Saturday, August 19, 2017 by salon----comments 0 (Views:395)
I mean, the man has a lot of clubs and golf courses, and already has a fake history plaque at one of them. He has lots of room and lots of clubs. He seems to be concerned with *erasing history* despite the fact that books exist about the Civil War and that the UNITED STATES won over the Confederacy. He can fix this by ponying up, he's rich, right? He's always telling people so, and taking ..... Read More

My opinion on the President's Evangelical Counsel Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.

Trump O Day- 8/18/2017|
Friday, August 18, 2017 by salon----comments 0 (Views:246)
Economist Mr Trump is not a Republican, but the solo star of his own drama. By tying their fate to his, they are harming their country and their party. His boorish attempts at plain speaking serve only to poison national life. Any gains from economic reform—and the booming stockmarket and low unemployment owe more to the global economy, tech firms and dollar weakness than to him&m..... Read More
