Old Timer – August 2019

Mobility. Traffic. God-forsaken stupid endless construction. A sea of red brake lights. All in little ol’ Boerne. Pull up a chair kiddies. Your favorite friendly Old Timer is going to fix our traffic congestion in town. I’ve grown weary of it, as I know you have as well, but I’ve got solutions. So here we…

Old Timer

I catch a lot of crap for this column. Because I have an opinion, I instantly irritate some portion of the population no matter what I have to say. That doesn’t bug me much (at all), but I feel I could be doing better at irritating a greater number of people with each column. So…

Civil

Ok, so not to get all political right on you long-suffering readers right outta the starting gate, but there is a small chance that some of you savvier folks might’ve sensed and I should preface this by stipulating that this really only applies to those of you who’ve had occasion to inhale oxygen or experience…
