Jerry Langford, a student in the Cedar Bayou school system before the merger with Goose Creek, always wanted to watch a six-man team play football. It was on his bucket list.
Is this a plot instigated by one or more of our neighbors? Or ALL of our neighbors? If so, that would be terribly hurtful.
What will you give your sweetheart today? After all it is Valentine’s Day.
Covestro’s decision to delay construction on its new unit is probably nothing to worry about. However, it could also be the proverbial canary in the coal mine.
February is the perfect time to learn about heart disease and the steps you can take to help your heart.
When I received the sad news about Lucy Stallworth Kubiszyn’s death, I thought about how lucky I was to have known her most of my life. There was one school year, 1953-54, when I saw Lucy every week – when she brought her Robert E. Lee High School news for the weekly Teen Times page. She alw…
Using a journalistic skill set comparable to famed newspaperman Ernest Hemingway (although some say I lack the clarity of even Donald Duck), I composed a captivating column last week on customer service.
There never was a Valentine’s Day like it and probably never will be again. We hope.
Sometimes it is overwhelming. The enormity of it makes me shudder as I contemplate the passing of time. I held a baby recently and the wonder and awe of that tiny one left me breathless. We all were once newborn. We grew up from there into the rest of our lives.
The Baytown Sun ran an article recently stating that “three area governments will have elections at the May 2 General Election” ... referring to Barbers Hill ISD, City of Mont Belvieu and City of Anahuac.
February marks African-American History Month. Most Americans are familiar with the work of Frederick Douglass and the efforts of Martin Luther King, but few have a sense of what happened in between these two titans of history.
February already, and I’m still not used to writing the year 2020 on checks, letters, etc.
If you want to know about the history of education in Baytown’s African-American community from 1923 to 1966, Warren Singleton is your go-to guy. He has written a history of George Washington Carver School from its beginnings at the Mt Rose Baptist Church in 1923 to the closing of the high s…
Like most everyone else, the horrific death of Kobe Bryant and eight others, including his daughter, Gianna, keeps invading my mind. Even days later.
P.E. was Allen’s worst class. Jim Johnson would holler out, “Hey, Lard, Don’t get too close, you might fall on me. Then I’d just be a greasy spot on the gym floor.”
For those who know me, be it family, Discerning Readers, or friends (I had six friends at last count), they know I love great customer service. This means I loathe poor, arrogant, snobbish “customer malfeasance.”
From second-grader to high school senior, I lived on Maryland Street in Leger Addition where I conducted a thriving baby-sitting business.
Many people have a decorator come in and re-do their home. I have seen some gorgeous results. Those people know what they are doing. Usually they re-paint the walls and clear out some of the clutter, rearrange what is left, and sometimes add new things to the mix.
It’s awards season again in Hollywood so, of course, I pulled my chair right up to the screen to see who won what.
When I lean over my walker and look at me in the mirror, I realize that -- in spite of the wrinkles and white hair -- this funny-looking octogenarian still has a sense of humor. Keep smiling, old girl, even with more than a few good teeth missing in action.
All of you who are married, who were married, who are thinking of getting married, listen up. Marriage is an expedition for only the brave – take it from a veteran of 67 years.
Here are a couple of topics from my “To Do Folder” for your guaranteed reading pleasure. I use this folder to store ideas for future columns.
Those who may be suffering from PQO -- Pop Quiz Overdue -- are invited, after our long absence, to catch up with this question/answer entry.
There are people who say it never happened. I visited the Houston Holocaust Museum last week and it boggles the mind how anyone could think that. There, as in many other similar museums, was a preponderance of proof otherwise.
Never mind the feud over President Trump’s impeachment, or fighting in Iran or fussing in Great Britain over the royal exit of Harry and Megan.

Ross S. Sterling High School senior Jasmine Moore, an outside hitter for the bi-district qualifying Lady Rangers volleyball team, signed her National Letter of Intent Thursday to play collegiately at NCAA Division I Bethune-Cookman in Daytona Beach, Fla. The Wildcats went 8-24 last fall. Fro…
The Barbers Hill Lady Eagles basketball team knows who it will play to open the 2020 postseason when it travels to Manvel for a 6 p.m. Monday bi-district playoff against Texas City. The Barbers Hill squad is 31-4 overall and wrapped up an undefeated (12-0) District 21-5A season under first-y…
With a chance to finish the season above .500 if not make the Class 6A playoffs, the Sterling Lady Rangers faced Deer Park in Baytown in hopes of ending things in positive fashion.
There was a little movement this week for the top teams in the Power Five rankings – the poll that ranks all teams playing currently – even though most of the faces remain the same.
District realignment is a mixed bag that has a habit of tricking you into feeling optimistic. You can map it out, read all the mock districts and begin to give into hope. But in recent years, one thing has become certain. When Baytown makes plans, the UIL laughs.
As area football players began signing National Letters of Intent to continue their careers at the collegiate level beginning in the fall, one Goose Creek Memorial Patriot is relieved the process is complete.
The Power Five is the new Baytown Sun poll that ranks all teams playing currently. Once their season ends, a team’s spot on the poll will be vacated the following week.
Once upon a time long ago and far-away in a thicket along a dark-water creek, I caught a strange-looking fish that I couldn’t identify. It was small – about six skinny inches-long –and looked somewhat prehistoric. Sometime later, I became aware of a fish native to southeast Texas called a bo…
Robert E. Lee girls basketball’s playoff hopes may be dwindling, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still make huge strides until the season ends. Then? Who knows?
Alonzo Linton, 45, outlets a pass to Lee College teammate Keontae White, 2, during Wednesday’s Region XIV basketball game against Lamar State in Baytown. The host Rebels trailed 40-39 at halftime. The deficit grew to as large as 54-47 early in the second half before Lee (14-9, 5-7) rallied f…
Just like moments after 9/11 when trash tried to take advantage of grieving and scared Americans, there are always some members of the garbage society that wants to make a name for themselves or take advantage of tragedy.
