Old Timer

Because I’m smarter than all of you, I have decided to become the town’s new City Planner. Which makes me wonder, does Boerne even HAVE a City Planner? If so, what does that person do all day? Anyway, because I fail to see much “planning” going on with the current layout nor future plans for…

From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE reader, Having grown up in Texas, I have seen plenty of backroads. From the all-important “Let’s go on an adventure” type trips with friends, to the ones when you were a kid and rode with your parents to grandma’s house. Regardless of the destination, for the last 40 years of my life, I…

The Power of Presence

“What a jerk.” C’mon, be honest now. You know you’ve said something like this – or worse – about somebody at one time or another. Maybe it was to a rude stranger who cut you off in traffic, an inconsiderate friend who said something to hurt your feelings, or even a family member who thought…

The Man Behind The Name

If you grew up in this little town, chances are you’ve chanted his name – albeit misspelled, or at least Anglicized – at football games, thusly: B-B-BOE! R-R-RNE!  You quite likely use it every day or so, you write it in your return address, and you’ve more than likely corrected your share of mispronunciations: It’s…

The Art Of Living

“The only journey is the one within.” For Shawn Dunham, life has certainly been a journey.  From being a collegiate athlete to wrestling rodeo bulls to being a professional actor, Dunham has experienced a lot. A true troubadour, Dunham has discovered that life is defined not by your vocation, but perhaps is more defined by…
