From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, I’ve wanted to write this particular Publisher’s piece for a while (as in years) but could never quite sculpt it in my mind in a way that made any sense for you, the reader. In fact, now that I think about it, I believe that I’ve been kicking the topic for this…

The Art Of Discernment

Raymond Lunsford and his wife Lisa have quite the footprint on Main Street of Boerne. Though you might not know their name, they are owners of several buildings, as well as the famous Dienger Building in Boerne. They have taken a passion for this town and developed one of the area’s most widely known destination…

The Birth Of A Legend

A quick fun “fact” about Boerne Berges Fest. Did you know that the Fajita taco has a tale that links its origin to Boerne Berges Fest? The fajita taco has origins linked directly to Berges Fest: fajita is a TexMex word that means “little belt”, or “sash”, and references the shape of skirt steak, which…

That Which We Cannot Control

This column isn’t for you. I’m writing it for me. Because I need to hear it more than you do. Or maybe there’s someone out there as messed up as I am. If somebody had told me 5 years ago “I suffer from anxiety” I would have resisted chuckling at them. “Really? Anxiety? What are…

Old Timer

June just started and the mercury is already flirting with triple digits. I’m going to sit in my air conditioning and contemplate who is responsible for this atrocity. Update forthcoming next month. Or not. It may still be too hot to peel my wrinkled old man ass out of the trusty la-z-boy. Stay tuned.

From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, I read a lot. In my previous life, I was a voracious reader of fiction, and had read every Stephen King book multiple times over. As I’ve gotten older, I have found that I read a lot of stuff about self-improvement. Some of it is in the printed form, and some of…

Floating Texas Rivers

Summer is coming and living in Boerne gives us many opportunities to partake in activities involving water. We live near several lakes and are a short three hour drive to the coast. But one of the most popular summer water activities is jumping in a tube and floating down a Texas river. To help you…

Golf “Pro”

The Texas Hill Country offers some of the best golfing experiences anywhere in the state. Courses designed by pros who’s names even non-golfing types know. Fantastic. Problem is, unless you make mid-six figures, you probably never have, nor ever will play on a course like that. We here at EXPLORE are a frugal bunch. Not…

History – All Roads Lead

The very first road builders in Texas were the American bison, whose scientific classification is the very Roadrunner-esque Bison bison and who might have belonged to one of two subspecies in North America, the Bison bison bison. Here’s something you might not know about the beautiful Texas Hill Country and, as pioneer Boerne settler John…

Old Timer

One of my favorite things to read each year is the Boerne Star’s BEST OF thing that they do. You’ve got all the normal categories, like BEST BURGER or BEST LAWYER, and some are legit and some are hogwash and everybody knows it. I got to thinking about this the other day and figured I’d…

From The Publisher

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…
