|Round 2 for Citizens vs. Hospital District Board|
Petition for an election to dissolve the Somervell County Hospital District - Round 2|
Round 1 Today, the Somervell County Hospital District declined our petition because 213 people did not have a city listed with their address. Not because those people were not registered, they were, but because they did not have a city on their address so the hospital district did not allow that registered voters signature to be valid. The hospital district board members are using this as an excuse not to have an election but they don't need a petition to call an election, they have the authority to do so without a petition, the petition just forces the issue as per the.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for December 11, 2013|
Yay! Looks like it may finally be sunny and warm enough to melt some more of this. I have some work to do to re-make a dog pen cover. I had made what I thought was a wonderful cover made of PVC pipe. It held up through various thunderstorms but the weight of the icy IcePocalypse last week did it in. The whole thing is a frozen mess so I'm not even sure if any of the pvc pipe broke. Basic.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for December 9, 2013|
Winter Ice-Capades continue. Yesterday afternoon had some sun that turned the parts of the driveway and road into slush that weren't covered by shade, enough to be able to get out a little bit. Today, the water that has melted has formed another layer of ice, looks like another good day to STAY HOME unless it's an emergency. I remind that my primary issue locally about the Somervell Cou.....

Sid Miller Told by AQHA To Stop Exercising His Horses By Having Them Behind His Moving Truck|
DMN Republican Sid Miller, a former representative from Stephenville now running for the statewide office, acknowledged that he received the warning but said he’s done nothing wrong. Witnesses complained after Miller tethered three of his prize-winning quarter horses to the back of a trailer and exercised them by driving them around slowly in circles at a show in May in San Antonio. .....

On The Removal of the Disrespectful Photos|
A couple of days we were contacted by someone we know who had seen photos floating around amongst a lot of people about something extremely thoughtless and cruel that a teenager did on the internet. We were appalled by the photos. The teen had put some extremely disrespectful comments on the photo. Another teen commented on the photo that was on the internet and said it was disrespectf.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused - Winter Storm Hath Descended Edition for Dec 6 2013|
Last night it sounded like the Hounds of Hell were loose in the yard and at one point I heard a loud crash. My dog kennel area, which has held up great with normal weather, fell in under the weight of the snow. This is the most snow I've seen around here for years. Good day to be home

Here comes the Ice Storm. Will we be entombed in ice? I'm wrong when I do the same thing that I call out someone else for doing. WHEN Will Luminant declare bankruptcy? While their main concerns focus on investment losses associated with a bankruptcy, Milam County on the other hand has more concrete and up-close worries - especially the impact of a Luminant bankruptcy on property tax.....

The Myth of Affordable Health Care|
Obama and legislators lied to us. The insurance industry still manipulates the marketplace. There is no affordable health care. We were better off before Obamacare and it was tough enough then. Once again I reviewed over 100 health care plans as I have for the past several months and none of them are worth anything. They are not affordable. They suck. The m.....
