The Difference One Day Can Make

Five Bowie County and area school districts will implement a four-day week for the 2022-2023 school year. Fridays will be considered student holidays, and some Fridays will be used by staff for professional development and planning time. The districts implementing the four-day week view the new schedule as a potential solution to many issues public education is facing.

Wisdom and Rubies

Wisdom is better than rubies. —Proverbs 8:11 … It was easy for Solomon to opine about the value of knowledge, experience, and good judgment. He was not worried about the source of his next meal, a safe and comfortable place to lay his head, clothing to keep him protected from the elements, or the cost of college for Rehoboam. It is good to be the king.

Over the years, Texarkana has had bragging rights to being the hometown of many famous people, from actors and politicians to musicians and athletes.

Tradition of Remembrance

The land of the free and the home of the brave—this final phrase from our national anthem so beautifully depicts why the United States is the greatest nation on Earth. America is the land of the free quite simply because it is the home of the brave. For centuries, courageous men and women have set aside—sacrificed—their own wants, needs, and desires and answered a call to defend the life and liberty of all Americans. Many made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives in defense of the freedoms that we so casually enjoy.

It’s hard for us Texas-lovers to venture too far outside our beloved state, but lucky for us, we can see the whole world without ever having to leave the greatest state in the nation. … If you’re looking for an Alpine adventure, there’s no need to hop a plane east to Europe. Rather, jump in the car and head to West Texas.


Getting It Right

We know little in youth, and often that is a good thing. We are impulsive, we can be arrogant and we certainly do not know enough about the world to make big decisions. That being said, the current generation of young people happens to be one of the most motivated and politically active since the civil rights movement of the 1960s. In my time within the political realm, I have learned four important lessons, and they are lessons people in politics should always keep in mind. … The small stuff matters. … The fall of 2020 was an enormous opportunity for everyone in politics.
