Re: Arp adds high school clay shooting team

Competitive shotgun shooting is pretty firmly established in a lot of high schools in Texas already. The Youth Target Foundation is one such umbrella organization that's available to schools in Texas and Oklahoma. You can get a lot more information, including whether any of your local schools are al...

You might suggest she check with her school's Student Affairs office, or the Student Union to see if self-defense/martial arts are taught on-campus. Also the PhyEd/Athletics folks may have courses available, as well.

Re: Best route through Houston.

BTW - I second the suggestion to arrive in Galveston the day before. We did that over a Christmas cruise a couple of years ago. We stayed at the Inn at the Waterpark, one of the hotel/motels that offered covered parking for our vehicles behind a security fence. Turned out they had great security, co...

Slight problem with LTC as ID!

I tried using my LTC to early vote last night, but ran into a slight problem... DPS still (after more than 45 days) hasn't sent me an LTC or Driver's License with my new address on it. Luckily, my voter registration card had the correct address.

Re: Trump or Clinton--our own poll

Why does everyone keep repeating the "fact" that Trump is self-funding his campaign. He's not. I keep getting two or three "Emergency Fund Requests" from The Donald each week. I did not know anyone was still saying that. He self-funded up to the primary. Once he secured the nomination, he started a...

You know what they say about opinions being similar to a part of one's anatomy....

Everyone's got one.

Re: Breaking - Ryan Told Support Trump Or Else

Multiple networks just announced that Ryan has been told by a couple of key House supporters that if he doesn't fall in line and support Trump that he risks being voted out as Speaker of the House. Wow! They had to try like heck to get him to take the job in the first place, and now they're threate...

Re: OK: Tulsa LEO Charged with Manslaughter

Interesting. It looks like they've skipped the grand jury option and just flat out charged her. So, who pays for her defense? Most police officers belong to some sort of union (or in Texas, where public safety unions are prohibited, an "association") which provides for legal coverage in the event t...
