Recently a situation developed that caused me quite a bit of a quandary. The gist of that quandary had to do with money, which is a serious pet peeve of mine. When I was in high school, I had smashed my right big toe. At the time, the doctor had to remove the toenail and it took six months for my toenail to grow back.

Dear Editor, I support the LISD 2014 Bond – but. I told the LISD Board I’m not comfortable spending millions for facilities while at the same having a staff reduction plan unless they get more State money.

Who would have thought on the morning of March 28 the Llano softball Jackets would have a chance at making the playoffs? They owned an 0-4 record in 8-AAA. Then came a 3-1 win over Brownwood. Losses followed to champion Liberty Hill and Lampasas, but the Jackets rebounded to homer their way past Gatesville, 6-3, April 11. That means the Hornets (3-5) are one game up on Llano and Burnet with two to play.
