Distant relative urges vote for King
I want to toot the horn of our Texas Legislative District #61 House member, Mr. Phil King.
Since 1998, he has led the way for solid conservative and value-oriented legislative service in a way that is excelled by few. He knows what good stewardship over government spending is, and he watches with diligence that we taxpayers are served in our best interests and in keeping with the best interests of Texas.
I do have to confess that I’m a relative! Yes, Phil’s wife, Terry, is my seventh cousin, twice removed. We’re both descended from Plymouth Colony Governor William Bradford, co-author of the Mayflower Compact. That’s a fairly good conservative start! So, all of this is under the Theory of Relativity!
Early voting is just around the corner, and determined voters may express themselves early and quickly. I, for one, plan to vote on the first day of early voting! Join with me in voting for him for another successful term. As a committed Republican, I am pleased to support Phil King.
D. A. Sharpe,

NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Survivors are heroes, too
Recently, we attended the production of two one-act plays at Weatherford College, both under the excellent direction of Nancy McVean. The first, entitled simply “New York,” was set in a Manhattan psychiatrist’s office shortly after 9-11 as 10 different patients who had either been present at the Twin Towers or had lost loved ones in the disaster came seeking solace. Each survivor struggled with their own grief and internal conflict as the doctor listened and tried to help.
TISIONE: We worship the triune God
Many Christians recently celebrated the feast of Pentecost, which is sometimes called Whitsunday. Pentecost as you may know was celebrated in the Old Testament. The Bible refers to it as the Feast of Weeks. It was ordained by God to be one of the three mandatory celebrations in Israel along with Passover and the Feast of Booths.
Honor Flight Fort Worth – the trip of a lifetime

CNHI EDITORIAL: Seizure of AP phone records an insult to independent press
Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.
NOW HEAR THIS: ‘What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate’
This famous quote addressing communication failure is a classic line from the 1967 movie “Cool Hand Luke,” starring Paul Newman. Strother Martin, who played the role of the warden in a southern prison, would use this phrase every time he gave Luke a good whack with his baton. The concept resonated so well with moviegoers that it was voted No. 11 of the 100 all-time favorite movie quotes according to the American Film Institute.

TISCIONE: Woe for calling evil good
You don’t often see “woe” used in an article. It’s a word that has fallen out of usage in our day. But it’s a word that ought to be understood and taken seriously.
