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.

So shines a good deed

So shines a good deed

The Christmas rush was upon us last December and James Luna was finishing up his gift shopping on Christmas Eve after work. He works for the railroad in Victoria and stopped off at H-E-B, Subway, and Whataburger in La Vernia on his way home that night. As he was loading his purchases into his truck, he sat his “shopping wallet” on the railing of the back of his Ford F150. Someone else was waiting for his parking space, so he rushed to get into his truck and leave the space for them. The next day as he was going to make a purchase, he noticed that his black wallet was nowhere to be found. Full Story »

Encourage one another

This world would be so different if we would all learn to encourage others as well as ourselves. Encouragement is the key in accomplishing tasks, winning a game, building self-esteem, and so many other things. Without encouragement, this world would be a negative place to exist. The dictionary defines encouragement as: “The act of inspiring others with renewed courage, spirit or hope.” The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:11, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.” Full Story »

It’s weird and sometimes wonderful, but is it art?

It’s weird and sometimes wonderful, but is it art?

Graffiti isn’t new, not by a long shot. Possibly the first known graffiti were figure drawings on walls of the surface of rocks or boulders in Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia as early as the first century BC. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius (79 AD) preserved graffiti in Pompeii, including Latin curses, magic spells, declarations of love, political slogans, and famous literary quotes, providing insight into ancient street life.

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 »
