Coming to the Fuel Coffee House on Thursday, June 30th at 7 PM we have a fantastic show by two musical experts: Paul Finley and Harriet Myrick. They both compose their own music and write their own songs. The sounds Finley pulls from a vast amount of musical knowledge to create the sound of two guitarists playing at once are nothing short of amazing. There is no end to the “soundscapes” he can create using just his acoustic guitar.

Because of summer school, the cafeteria has been serving about 100 kids plus adults, but if the number of people drops after summer school is over, the school will have to decrease the number of workers and su ...

MARBLE FALLS—This space is rarely used to promote players, to tell of accomplishments about which you’re well aware and don’t need to be told. But this 7-on-7 season prompts me to deliver my assessment: the 2011 football squad—on offense—will be led by quarterback Rhett Brooks and receivers, Matthew Center and Justin Wyatt. Brooks has shown—against tough opponents, Marble Falls and Burnet, and over-matched Faith Academy—he has a much stronger ...

I’m sure you know USC was recently stripped of its 2004 national championship in football. Isn’t stripped sort of a fuzzy word for a G-rated newspaper? How about, “This just in—Southern California has been forced to relinquish its title”? Well, anyway, the crown has been removed. Now, that’s not too bad. I don’t know whether Oklahoma should be handed the championship since it was in the Bowl Championship Series final against the Trojans.
