Old Timer

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…

THE BRIDGE Well, the bridge is finished. Scratch that – it’s kinda sorta finished, as they’re still putting in the lights, paint, and marking the road. But sure enough, we have a fully functional bridge. It carries the exact same number of cars across the bridge, has the same number of lanes, and does little…

Must Do In Boerne

Crow-Karsch Ranch Hill Country scenic views is something Boerne is known for. Did you know you could be so close to Boerne and still see all the way to the Tower of the Americas? Crow-Karsch Ranch is the little known place where you can do this. Go out there on a clear day and soak…

Boerne School District Obviously, my kids are grown and gone, but even back in the day, the BISD was a good one. And it still is. However, I can’t believe that parents tolerate the amount of time that the teachers take off. We’ve got the 3 months of summer, Christmas Break, and Spring Break, but…

OLD TIMER, BILL MILLER’S BBQ IS COMING TO TOWN! THAT ROCKS, RIGHT? I am pleased and welcome our new BBQ Overlords. My only complaint is the location at Cascade Caverns/I-10. Could there be a worse light in town? Back in my day, there was no light; only a stop sign. And you know what? We…

Old Timer is our resident cranky old guy. We all know one or love one, and we’ve become quite fond of Old Timer, and enjoy letting him spout off about stuff that he sees happening around town. Old Timer, who the hell are you? I look around town to see if I can spot you,…

An Open Letter from Old Timer

GROWTH No single word will split this community faster than the word GROWTH. We have one faction, that will spit insults at anyone that uses terms like “responsible growth” or “controlled growth”, because, well, the word GROWTH is in there, and it will eternally piss them off. They want no new growth; they want little…

Old Timer – A Week in the Life

Old Timer is our resident cranky old guy. We all know one or love one, and we’ve become quite fond of Old Timer, and enjoy letting him spout off about stuff that he sees happening around town. Monday I hate Mondays. Nothing exciting happens around here on Mondays. All of the stores and businesses are…

Well, I had a lot of fun a couple of months ago when I tackled a few of Boerne’s most egregious issues that I felt needed to be addressed. We took on the stupid sidewalk project that’s been mucking up my Main Street since the 1st of the year, we addressed those idiotic windows they…

Old Timer – July 2013

I’m a bit of a wine collector, and was wondering about your wine knowledge. I’m having a hard time deciding between the exquisite (but expensive) Domaine Romanée-Conti or finishing my collection off with the more affordable, yet equally impressive Chteau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1986. Thoughts? Wine has always been a bit perplexing to me. We’ve…

Old Timer – June 2013

I love Boerne. I really do. Why else would I move here decades ago, raise a family, and stay here to put up with all of you new folks that are mucking up my town? I’m sorta kidding. I actually like most of you new folks, but I do wish you’d understand that Boerne is…
