0 Creative Writing | "Possibilities" | by Hazel Fipps-Mann

"I saw the big orange bus come down my street early this Monday morning. It stopped and picked up the neighbor kids and whisked them away to the first day of a new school year.

This is a sound and sight I have heard and seen for 42 years on this little street. For five of those years, I drove that bus. I remember so many of those youngsters. Each were individual packages of possibilities, dressed in their back-to-school clothes, new pencils, and paper tucked into their backpacks, faces shining. I have been here long enough to see what some of those little bundles of potential became. Some wonderful, others not-so-much.

0 Behind The Scenes | "Quotations" | Article and 4 Photos by Stephen Fisher



I really enjoy reading quotations from famous people. And since I’m a photographer, quotations from other professional photographers are my favorite. What I find interesting is that these people are known for their images…not their words. I’ve learned a lot from each of these pearls of wisdom. Let me share a few with you.

I’m including a hyperlink if you’d like to read more about these phenomenal photographers.

0 Letter to the Editor | "Re: Aransas County Groundwater Conservation District" by Diane Davis | Shared 8/20/16

See all Posts Relating to This Issue
For those with an interest in the Aransas County Groundwater Conservation District:

At the Groundwater meeting on Wednesday night, 8-17, Commissioner Stiles seemingly could not understand my concern about well water usage under the proposed district guidelines since I am “allowed” to pump up to 25,000 gallons/day from my well without fear of fees, penalties, etc. While I am not the statistical “family of 4” Ms. Stiles used as her illustration since I have livestock, I do agree that to the best of my knowledge, I have never nor do I ever foresee using 25,000 gal/day. I do, however, feel strongly that what I pump to meet my needs is my concern and should not be under the control of a district, especially since it has been repeatedly stated by members of the Board that there are currently no issues in our County regarding groundwater usage. In fact, the TCEQ has stated that Aransas County is not in a priority groundwater management area and therefore its groundwater resources should adequately supply projected needs for at least the next 25 years.
