NRH Cracks Down with Red Light Cameras

It is truly a sad day in the life of North Richland Hills citizens. Those of us who frequent Davis Boulevard will now be subject to the whim of automated red light cameras.  "The cameras keep the streets safer." Really? Who really believes that? Let's call a spade a spade. The city needs money. They're building a brand new library, to be immediately followed by a new recreation center, both centrally located in the Home Town area.

The Physical Informs the Spiritual

It’s been 13 years since I experienced three significant physical ailments. I was a teenager, having moved out of my parents’ house and into my first apartment.

They're probably still the best in the NFC. But there's something about losing the respect of the nation and falling back into that category as a "second rate NFC team" that completely stole my thunder.  The fairy tale died. Dallas was on the receiving end of the steamroll last […]

An Opportunity, Not a Duty

It’s like God flipped a switch in me this past week. I can’t tell you exactly when it happened, but I remember realizing it had happened. One day, I just realized that my countenance feels brighter, my head feels less topsy turvy, and my outlook is positive and excited. I’ve been talking like it’s going out of style.
