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…

Sometimes I just drive around town and mutter questions at myself. Why are they doing that? Who the hell thought up this brilliant idea? Have we fully become Stone Oak yet? Regardless, I just make observations and either chuckle to myself at the craziness of it all, or shake my head in frustration. Sometimes I…

Old Timer – November 2016

I’m writing this little column in late October, and that means that the Presidential election is in just a few days. I am extremely happy (as I’m sure many of you are) that this sad chapter in American history is closing, as the campaign was one of the biggest circuses to watch.  We’re probably faced…

Well, the issue of Buc-ee’s dominated our universe last month, and I don’t know about you, but I’m fatigued with it at this point. The EDC and the City Council pulled yet another fast one on us, and managed to keep the whole thing a secret until days before the vote. And just like that,…

As we all know, Buc-ee’s is going to come to town, with construction beginning probably late 2018. And as expected, the town has their pitchforks out and are looking for blood. Meanwhile, the City Council is completely confused at the response from the citizenry and is hiding behind the explanation of “The negotiations were confidential…
