“Can anything good come out of [politics]?” It’s a necessary evil and I know it will continue after Super Tuesday (to be sure, for the rest of my life). Once I was enmeshed in politics, even campaigning. “The Desiderata” (“avoid loud and aggressive persons…”) was popular when I was a teen.
In nine months, citizens of the U. S. will face a daunting task: the election of a president. Regardless of your political party affiliation, it is critical that you do your duty. Register to vote, vote early, or vote on election day. I strongly urge you to do your research about the candida…
When Shania sassed her way through that song, she sang truthfully. It might be my age, the jobs I’ve had or simply my temperament, but iconic stature (even Seguin style) “don’t impress me much.”
Now is the time to act before it’s too late. The mayor of San Antonio, Ron Nirenberg, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, and the San Antonio City Council have been pushing through their agenda to make many changes at the Alamo.
For these past months that I’ve been at Seguin High School, there have been numerous times where I’ve been attacked by many different people, because of my political beliefs, for speaking my truth!
Ay Dios Mio! Shirley Hester, Oh my God! Did you really write “you people” on your recent Letter to the Editor? The letter you wrote giving your opinion on the Aumont mural.
Dr. Pepper had an ad that touted, “I’m a Pepper; he’s a Pepper…wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too?” Well, I avow, “I’m a turkey; he’s a turkey; wouldn’t you like to be a turkey, too?” I say that neither to mock nor wound. That assertion reminds me of being God’s turkey.
My opinion of the beautiful mural on the north side of the Aumont is that it is really hidden and should have been more visible. The Texas Rangers did a wonderful job getting rid of the outlaws in our area.
Milestones are monumental. However, such milestones like turning 30, menopause, Medicare, didn’t faze me. Yet, the one I’m reaching this month has my attention! It deserves to be called monumental by me. It fills me with great sadness and joy!
The sense of community that our community is known for shined again with the recent resolutions of concern for the protection of the lakes that are part of the identity of our community, and for the protection of the wellbeing of those who would be impacted and harmed.
I just read the story about how Mr. Kiel presented the Heritage Museum with a Juan Seguin flag. When did he use that flag and why? It is a Mexican flag and is not one of the 10 flags that flew over the Republic like Mr. Gesick said.
“Solar, wind power need to be considered” by J. C. Dufresne on Friday, Sept. 6 was interesting, but naive. You can’t power Texas with statistics, but Dufresne tried.
My name is Keith Strimple and I live on upper Lake Placid in Guadalupe County, Texas. Having started my engineering career with the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) right out of college, I have a historical perspective that, I believe, is unique — working for GBRA from 1984-1998, havi…
The beautiful lakes in our area are part of the identity of the community, because they have been in place for about 90 years. GBRA bought them around the 1960’s, according to the news.
In a prior letter to the editor, I wrote that columnist J.C. Dufresne’s charge that Trump supporters are “good little Nazis” is libelous. In response, reader Larry Spears suggests that it’s my comment that is libelous. Spears then joins Dufresne when he writes that an advisor to President Tr…
“Most people are good.” I like that song/singer, but when I hear that line I wince and mumble “hmmm” because I’m just not that sure. No problem seeing good in people, but my Libra scales simply won’t tip when I hear “most.”
There was a legal notice in the paper to condemn Mrs. Jacquline Crayton’s house that got me thinking. This is the same home that family and friends gathered in front of for a vigil after she was found dead on the floor from a non-life threatening fall three years earlier.
In the 1950s, six of us in the same family either enlisted or were drafted, four of us ended up in Korea, including this writer. There were many young men barely out of their teens, and included many U.S. reservists from WW2, and many other countries, who also served, fought and many died th…
While it’s good to see diverse views and historical facts on the Seguin Gazette’s editorial page, self-described liberal activist and Democrat J.C. Dufresne broke new ground for the Gazette on Aug. 9, 2019, when he wrote that if Republican voters “don’t repudiate President Trump and his enab…
I am rejoicing with the happy news that there will not be any cut in Library funding by Judge (Kyle) Kustscher and the County Commissioners Court. They made the decision to continue the funding to the Seguin Public Library at the same level as last year.
In his response letter to J.C. Dufresne (July 21), Forrest Mims mentioned, “the Democratic Party’s lengthy advocacy of slavery, its role in the Civil War, its establishment of the Jim Crow policies that persecuted former slaves and their descendants for a century after the war, and its activ…
As the Guadalupe County commissioners work to finalize next year’s county budget, I urge them to fully fund the requests from the three public libraries in the county — Seguin, Marion and Schertz.
The Seguin Public Library is a pillar of our community and has positively impacted thousands of citizens, including our youth and young adults. Current and future taxpayers reap the benefits of library services, particularly regarding literacy and life-long learning.
In his latest column (July 19), far-left columnist JC Dufresne joined radical Democrats in calling President Trump a “fascist” and a “dictatorial leader.” He then claimed that Trump wants to deny illegal immigrants entry to the U.S. like the U.S. denied entry of 900 Jewish refugees in 1939. …
Just as we are responsible for providing educational opportunities for our students and teachers, your Seguin ISD board of trustees also participates in and benefits from educational training opportunities.
Shaking his head, Pat asked my daughter how she put up with me. Without missing a beat, she fired back at him, “I’ve had years of practice!” I, too, have had years of practice — at sinning. “Practice makes perfect.” Ergo, I do a bang up job of it. I don’t miss a beat either – i.e., I breathe…
A photo on page 1 of the June 11 and 12 editions misidentified a harmless crane fly as a mosquito. While crane flies are harmless, mosquitoes like the one in the adjacent photo are vectors for serious diseases.
I was sadly amused to see how Byron York’s column, where he asserted that there was a weakening of traditional standards of argument and proof, started with a lie.
Woohoo! I am very excited to read Floyd McKee’s new column in today’s Seguin Gazette. For many years, I would call members of my family who were living out of state, and I would read his column and we would enjoy learning the nuggets of Texas history.
