  • Finding love in war

  • County will be treated to some Cold Justice

     

    Frontier justice has been served on Main Street in La Grange.

    Through the magic of motion pictures, the famed train rail divided street will be featured in a local western entitled Cold Justice.

    Friends Zeb Son, Eddie Kinberger and David Huff wrote the movie after meeting as Wild West reenactors.

    The trio set out to write a commercial for their reenacting hobby and came away with a movie.

    Oh, for Pete’s sake! Another bra went missing. While packing for our trip, I made a last minute decision to toss my strapless model into the suitcase. Three times I rifled through my underwear drawer, but the rarely worn item had vanished.

    I considered that it could have gone into hiding as it most likely felt under-appreciated, and perhaps a little forlorn. Strapless bras are intended to push things upward into an impressive display of cleavage that makes all their hard work and effort worthwhile. However, there is no glory to be had for my poor ol’ strapless.

  • A look into the state legislature

    On the 45th day of the legislative session, the House finally passed its budget bill. This leaves us in the Senate only 13 days to work on the budget, present it in a committee, and vote on a Senate version. Thirteen days, less than two weeks, and if we take 13, our power to veto is lost.
