Time to stop policing the world

There are more than 200 nations on the planet earth with a total world population of 7 billion. For every resident of the United States there are 20 people in our world.
Wars are in progress now in many nations. Some of our leaders promote our military involvement into Syria and Iran. Have they considered the experience of the United States’ military involvement in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam? Did the sacrifice of many lives and much treasure bring peace, prosperity and democracy to these countries that we occupied for more than 10 years?

Letter of Thanks to the Hwy. 84 cattle rescue ‘first responders’

Monday's flooding of the Navasota River resulted in a temporary shut down of Hwy. 84 east of CR 194 and brought out some of the best “first responders” in Limestone County! We know from first-hand experience that more than 20 volunteers showed up to help move cattle trapped by rising water.
The first call came before breakfast from the Sheriff's Office alerting us the river was out, and minutes later DPS officers Chet Seelinger and Bubba Carter were on the scene to divert traffic and help navigate swift water. We could do little more than stand by and watch the herd huddled on the pasture's far southeast corner – and then neighborly help began to arrive in pick-up trucks! Thankfully, one was pulling a boat. This crew came with experience and a willingness to save the livestock.

Mexia News Editorial: Time to vote

Early voting begins Monday for the Mexia ISD school board and bond election. Every registered voter in Mexia ISD has eight days to cast a ballot. That's a total of 68 hours the polls will be open. There is no reason to not vote.
Every vote will play a role in deciding who helps lead the district as a school board member – Jackie Craig or Israel Flores. Every vote will play a role in deciding the future of our campus facilities.
Mexia has been very quiet over the issue of the bond package. A quiet community should imply that everyone knows what is at stake, knows the pros and cons on both sides and has a firm handle on how where they stand on the issue.
If we have a high voter turnout – in favor or against the bond package – then we can at least say the community took a stand. But if voters are going to ignore this election because the issue is not something they understand, or want to learn about, then we are making a monumental mistake.

Paving the way of shame

For weeks now we have been grieved deeply due to the brick thrown causing bodily injury to a lady passing through our great city of Coolidge. Our prayers go out mightily for the victims all around, whether hit by bricks or the ones throwing bricks.
