Let’s go to “Hoostontalk”. Yeah. Who needs Texas when we can get a change of pace right here at home? The majority of our Planning Commission has a reverse vernacular, which will turn everything you thought you knew about thinking upside down. It’s a new mindset.

  • Let’s go to “Hoostontalk”. Yeah. Who needs Texas when we can get a change of pace right here at home? The majority of our Planning Commission has a reverse vernacular, which will turn everything you thought you knew about thinking upside down. It’s a new mindset.

     
  • On Jan. 6, the Houston County Planning Commission is holding a public hearing on the draft ordinance to regulate frac sand mining. This ordinance is the "restrictive regulation” that Commissioner Teresa Walter promised in last fall’s election. It supposedly will prevent frac sand mining from raping our county as we see happening in Wisconsin.

     
  • “Government done right is a solemn responsibility.” —”Minnesota Cities,” March-April, 2014, published by the League of Minnesota Cities, the professional organization of all cities in Minnesota. The League’s direction is that city councils must go through certain steps in coming to any decision.

     
  • We would like to say, “Thank you Spring Grove!”  If you ate a pork-burger or turkey dinner, if you dropped a box of macaroni into the cart, if you answered your door to the student council collecting food, if you opened your pantry to your child, if you sent a dollar to hat day, if you wrote a check, if you spent your allowance on food, if you hauled food, if you let us use your van, if you did any of these things, then you are a part of this wonderful and generous effort that is the Channel One Student Food Drive!

     
  • The city’s water tower in not tall enough nor strong enough to support Verizon’s new installation. Verizon NEVER intended to stay on the city’s water tower.  
  • On a recent Monday night in Brooklyn, five empty chairs stood on stage — one for each member of the Federal Communications Commission. A crowd had amassed in the room for a public hearing to send this message to the agency: Dont hurt the open Internet.

     
  • The soldiers who fought the Revolutionary War were our first veterans, the only cohort of U.S. warriors who took up arms to create rather than defend a country.

     
  • The Spring Grove school district residents have a long history of supporting our school.  Our community believes in the value of public education for our children.

     
  • "On my honor I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the constitution, my community, and the agency I serve."

     
  • I have known Mark Inglett for almost 30 years, and I am endorsing him for sheriff in the up-coming election.   

     
  • Two years ago I was present at and observed all but one of the frac sand "study" committee meetings in Houston County.  Eric Johnson, a township officer, was one of Rick Frank's and Bob Scanlan's handpicked people on the committee.

     
  • Every fall, my cousin and I watch football games in his “man cave” that's equipped with sports memorabilia, Xbox, a fully stocked bar and the crown jewel, an HD 70-inch television. As a lifelong southerner who loves college football, this is nirvana.
