With school starting up it nice to have something that isn’t too time consuming in the evening. For a quick lunch or casual supper, these are ready to eat in 20 minutes. You might even want to get the kids involved in helping make these. You can also add other toppings, such as pepperoni, Parmesan cheese or other veggies. ½ lb.

The weather continues to be hot and dry, and although there are occasional chances of rain in the forecast I seldom see a cloud capable of dropping any moisture and have not seen any rain in town for the past several weeks. The City continues to struggle to keep the water supply tanks full so that we can meet all of the needs of our residents, but we need your help to manage this.

We had the largest turnout of the year for Wednesday’s Scramble, with 24 eager golfers showing up to play. Playing conditions were excellent, with little wind, and temperatures below 100 by the time we teed off at 5:30. The five teams worked their way around the course, and by 7:30, the groups began to come back to the club house to post their scores.

There is much to be gained--we’re begged to believe--in exercise engagement, even if it’s simply kicking cans on down the road. In so doing, however, we’re guilty of more than “messing with Texas.” Don’t look now--or maybe you should--but the cans are stacking up. So many--from the White House, state house, courthouse and finally to our house--litter our world.

As the super hot and dry dog days of August continue we can only wish for the cooler wetter fall and winter so we can wish for the warmer weather of summer. Good ol’ Texas weather. My little dog wants to go for marathon walks but she has realized that it’s really too hot during the day so she now prefers the hours between 11:00PM and 6:00AM.

What. What would we do without “what”? What’s new, Pussycat? What’s up, Doc? What’s it all about, Alfie? What’s the problem? What’s happening? Que passa? What’s done is done. What’s a mother to do?

What the world needs now is love, sweet love. What’s love got to ...

I would like to thank our hard working mayor for his persistent efforts to create a speed limit change for some of the streets in our town. And, a “thank you” to our city commissioners for approving a measure to help protect and keep our town safe for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. In 2006, 52 residents of El Paso Street and Avenue F signed a petition requesting a speed limit change.

Dear Gerry: Re: Grit Cemetery Drift from Herbicide Aerial Application This letter is in response to inquiries I’ve received regarding the post oak trees at the Grit Cemetery. In 2014, I, and others, noticed a helicopter spraying herbicide in the pasture next to the cemetery’s east side. At the time I wondered why apply aerial herbicide in such a small, confined space and how could you avoid drift damage to surrounding areas.
