I was in Green Bay, Wisc., for the entire month of April 1958 for training at a local business.
I became acquainted with several of the Green Bay Packers, who at that time were living in Green Bay year-round. I also met Curly Lambeau, the Packers’ coach, who was in the Hotel Northland where I stayed.
From that time forward, I have always been a Packer fan. Until Sunday when the game was stolen from the Cowboys.

We have all heard the expression “home cookin’.”
What was done to the Cowboys was not “home cookin’.” It was felony theft!

A bigger threat
Many of my fellow citizens seem to be confused about the Bill of Rights.
They are adamant that the Second Amendment is under attack and that the government is trying to take their guns.
If they’d look a little further in the Constitution that they carry around, they’d see that the Fourth Amendment guarantees that their guns will never be seized.
However, the Fourth Amendment is under attack by asset forfeiture laws in Texas and around the U.S., unlike the Second, which is here to stay.
I hope Open Carry Tarrant County will join me in opposing this real threat to our freedom instead of beating the dead-horse argument of the government coming for our guns.

A failed bond
After attending a Fort Worth school district bond presentation, I’m not surprised the bond was/is not fiscally sound.
The meeting was hosted by AARP, and the thrust was “you don’t have to pay for this, so vote for it.”
The questions I asked: What was the interest rate and bond life used to calculate taxpayer cost?
Where would the science-technology-engineering-math (STEM) and arts facilities be located?
What was the cost estimate for each?
Why should exempt taxpayers support an untenable program?
The answer to each was, “We don’t know but we’ll get back to you,” and the response to all was silence.
In fairness, Superintendent Walter Dansby was not present, only a district lawyer and personnel manager.
Hopefully, the selection of the next superintendent will be based solely on competence and fiscal oversight ability.
