Billy Ousley Fundraiser

All Day / CottonPatch

Friends and family are hosting this fundraiser for Billy, a former Karnes City Badger. He is on the list for a double transplant--heart and kidney. He has had several heart attacks and kidney cancer, so in order to save his life, a double transplant is needed. The benefit will include a bar-b-q meal, several different bands and singers, and a live auction later that afternoon. This is Memorial Day weekend, but if you have no plans, it will be a fun day for a good cause. From a fellow musician and friend: "If you can make it to Yorktown on the 28th, come on down and support my buddy, Billy. He's a good man, a good friend and could use a little return on the southern hospitality he's been dishing out to folks for years. There will be tons of food, live music, games, and a live auction. All to benefit a good cause for a good man". If you're unable to make it, you can always make a donation, if you choose to do so. You can make it out to Shirley Lopasky. She will see that it gets to the person in charge. Her address is 4402 Whickham Dr., Fulshear 77441.

For more information call 512-555-1212.

Trust in God to keep you away from ‘fences’

Walking my fence line is interesting most days. Last Saturday the walk was more of a mission. It seems my dog has found a few weak places in the fence and while I was mowing he decided to get acquainted with some neighbors. Full Story »

Life of excellence

I believe that the first step toward living a glorious life of excellence is to make a quality decision to honor God’s Word. President George Washington, a man of excellence who honored God’s Word, said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” One of America’s greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln, said, “I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to men.” No one could deny that each of these great American presidents were of excellent character. They honored God’s Word and it impacted their life and the lives of millions. Full Story »

Bears are bi-district champions!

Maybe it was first-game jitters or maybe Liberty Hill just had good hitters. One thing was clear. This Bear team had come too far to lose back-to-back games. After losing their May 6 bi-district game, 4-3, the Bears came home to regroup and ultimately claim the title of bi-district champions. Full Story »
