Old Timer – Dec 2018

EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG WITH TEENAGERS As I enjoyed my evening bourbon the other night, I realized that I think baby-boomers are knuckleheads. Then I thought about how they think their Gen X kids are bums. They in turn believe Millennials to be snowflakes. I suppose the cycle will never end. That said, I’m of…

We’re going to talk about one of the most controversial topics in all of Boerne. One that separates people, has led to gunfights, and has almost torn the entire town apart. Gateway Loop? Growth? $chultz’s beard? Nah. We’re going to talk about the River Road Park and Old Timer’s demands for how to fix things…

Old Timer – Sept 2018

God bless the Boerne Star. They did what is one of my all time favorite annual issues, which is their “BEST OF” issue. Now, MOST of the categories contain legit winners. From “Best AC Company” to “Best Housekeeper”, I am sure that these categories are won by companies that truly are some of the BEST…

When you’re done unpacking and installing your enormous security lighting system, I need you to come back to this article and review a few things that we all need you to understand.

Ah, good ol’ Boerne local government went and surprised itself yet again by trying to sneak a giant monstrosity CVS drugstore onto the corner of River and Main. You know, the most visible intersection in the entire town. The entrance to our entire Historic District and currently the most congested intersection in town. Yes, that…

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.

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…

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…

I wrote this piece a few years ago. I don’t remember the year it originally ran, nor the month. Unimportant, I suppose. I was feeling particularly nostalgic and wanted to do something a little different with my column and hammered this out on a beautiful morning when I really wished that I was having coffee…

Old Timer, 17 Herff is looking like it’s going to happen. I’m confused. What changed? It got shot down, but now they’re back and it appears that it’s going to get approved. Huh? Haha, simpleton. Of COURSE it’s going to get approved. It was ALWAYS going to get approved, and I’m disappointed that you expected…

Vermont is going to get a TARGET store. Big deal, right? Well, it’s probably not a big deal to those of us here in Boerne, but there’s interesting facts behind the story of TARGET finally moving into Vermont. Most glaring is that Vermont has been the last state in the country without a TARGET, and…
