I’ve practiced before Judge Old since just after he took the oath to serve these four counties.

He has always shown respect to everyone before him. He has also been very careful to make the right calls, rather than just the popular ones. I’ve had plenty of rulings go against me, but I have never felt like it was for anything other than the right reason.

I’ve seen Judge Old overrule himself once because he was shown why that was the right thing to do (only once, because he takes the time and care to be right the first time). I’ve been practicing just shy of 10 years, and in front of dozens of judges. That is something we rarely see.

He is tough when he needs to be, compassionate when that’s the right way to be, and you know that no matter what, you will walk out of his courtroom with the right ruling — whether you win or lose.

We are at the end stages of this election.

I urge you all in Guadalupe, Gonzales, Lavaca and Colorado Counties to go vote for Judge Old. He’s the judge we NEED watching over us. He WILL do justice, even when it’s inconvenient or hard.

Why single out HEB, when nearly all retail businesses add to the problem posed by single-use plastic bags? HEB and some others provide a means of recycling their bags and sell more durable reusable bags, including those designed for frozen goods. We are being inundated by plastic containers of all kinds for nearly everything that we purchase. While many of those plastics can be recycled, many can not. We clean and recycle all such containers, and that requires a great deal of effort including locating and hauling these materials to collection sites that accept plastics. That also requires proving you reside in the city/county involved in maintaining the collection site, as well as a fee.
