Message from the Mayor: Safety first
The tragic incident that recently occurred in West serves as a stark reminder that disasters can occur at any time or place.
Angels among us
The winds have dispersed the mushroom cloud that hovered over the small town of West. The dust has settled. The President of the United States, the Governor of Texas and other dignitaries have come to join in the memorial for those who lost their lives.
Missing the fun
Sad to say, in the 11 years The Little Woman (don’t call me that!) and I lived in Navarro County, we never attended the annual Derrick Days festivities. We followed all the events in the Daily Sun, but we never schlepped into town to “walk amongst em.” I guess, if I were to be honest with myself, I am the reason we never went.
Need a job? Leave the cat at home
The USA Today has printed an article this past week of advice to newly minted college graduates on how to get a job which basically boiled down to “don’t be stupid.”
This is excellent advice for any situation, but particularly that crucial job interview.
Plenty to do
I don’t wanna hear anyone griping about “there’s not anything to do around here.”
In fact, there’s SO much to do around here, I’m not sure how anyone can get to it all!
Letters to the Editor 5/4/13
To the Editor: Education, in my opinion, is the key to solving the problems we face in today’s world. We owe it to every child in Corsicana to provide him/her with the tools to reach their fullest potential.
One of the great lessons taught in every sport is the importance of finishing well. An athlete or a team can stumble at the start, but it is how they finish that makes the difference.
Gators and stuff
As the professional golf tournaments make their way around Florida and the southeast (they’re in New Orleans this week), I have noticed that they play amongst a plethora of exotic wild life — especially alligators. I don’t think I like alligators
In the middle of it all
It’s been a big week, and as of this writing there’s still plenty more to come, but I am struck again by how fortunate we are to live where we do.
It seems somewhat fitting in my eyes that we will have a celebration of Bobby Fluker’s life during the weekend of Derrick Days. He passed away after a short illness on Thursday, April 25.
Bobby was many things to many people, but to me, he was always the face of Derrick Days.
