Dearest EXPLORE Reader, Plato once said, “He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.” The concept of “injustice” is a topic that I’ve spent a little time on lately. I’ve even written about it in these little Publisher letters, and I’m not sure I’ve made a lot of progress…

Art of The Vow

Kristen Voss and her family began with a simple idea to build a small wedding chapel on their family property off of Ralph Fair Road. As lifelong residents, they wanted to put down even deeper roots and establish a small business…but none of them had any idea the size that it would soon reach and…

History

All of you readers who, like myself, have ever fancied yourself in the role of amateur sleuth,  will have already recognized the one big hurdle to getting on in that line of work- namely, the scarcity of murders in one’s close proximity which combine the necessary ingredients of being fabulously complicated- preferably hanging upon a…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, I once saw a simple little sign in a guy’s office that said, “If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” I snorted a chuckle and moved on with my day. Strangely, I have thought about that little sign time and again…

Art Of The Deed

Handling the title policy on your new home purchase may not seem like the most emotionally intense job out there, and for many it probably isn’t. However, for Randy Allen and his team at Alamo Title of Boerne, they take the process seriously. And yes, they attempt to take what many might consider mundane and…

Swan Song

It is difficult to have an original thought, idea, or theory. Conventional wisdom says that very few people ever think about anything deeper than what they are going to wear or that which their job requires. In spite of that I have found that almost every time I think I have an original answer to…

The Grapes of Wrath

“Crossroads”: A song that has inspired many a road trip in my day. Though the Eric Clapton version is a bit more upbeat, and the John Mayer version is a little smoother, there’s nothing like the original dirty, gritty vocals of Robert Johnson to stir up some serious sense of adventure. Over time, I found…

Worry Not

We all tend to worry a lot. We all do it – we worry about our jobs and our kids and our relationships and our money. We worry about war, and politics, and even the weather. Whatever it is – somebody, somewhere is actively stressed and worrying about something. It could be something global: “Man,…

Old Timer

By the time that you read this, our hotly contested Kendall County elections cycle should be over (March 6). I obviously can’t comment as to who won (as I’m writing this in mid-February), but the entire process of elections in this town is one that makes me batty. I shouldn’t say “process” as that’s not…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, There’s just something about an old boat. It can’t be a new boat, nor even a restored boat. It must be an OLD boat. It needs weathered upholstery, and faded controls. The interior carpet should be ripped and jagged, and there simply must be random tools in random locations, and there better…
