A few days ago, I posted a blog with a poll question asking, ‘Do You Believe in the Death Penalty?‘. I’d like to say that, I’m not surprised. However, I am surprised at how many folks are either against or undecided on the issue. A majority of people are for the death penalty, here are the numbers.
Saturday June 2nd, there will be a bike run in Buffalo Gap benefiting, ‘Baija’s Promise Ministries’.

Texas is one of the few states that still uses the death penalty. 482 Texas inmates have been put to death in the Lone Star State since 1982.

Proponents of the death penalty claim that ‘having the death penalty deters crime’, does it?. What are your thoughts on the death penalty?

Within the testing, the researchers discovered evidence of antibiotics and one of those antibiotics is a suspected dangerous human carcinogen.

I’ve often said that “Galveston is the Lone State States little Hawaii and one of my favorite spots in Texas.” As if I ever needed an excuse to go to Galveston for some R&R, this weekend is an awesome weekend to be on the seawall in Galveston, because the new ‘Pleasure Pier’ theme park opens this weekend. What is a Pleasure Pier you ask?
Like a kid with my nose stuck to the window, I have been watching the activity going on next door to our radio station. We’ve known for a while that a restaurant is being built, but today was different, because the signs finally went up and revealed what kind of restaurant it will be. It’s the Cattle Baron Cafe’ and as the name implies it is all about the beef.
