At approximately 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, Navasota PD officers were dispatched to a train versus pedestrian accident. 

The victim, 71 year old Blanch Steward from Navasota, is in critical condition. 

At the Feb. 22 Navasota City Council meeting, council approved Resolution No. 688-21 opposing legislation that prohibits tax funded advocates for local government. The verbiage of House Bill 749 and Senate Bill 234 refers to the use of taxpayer funds for lobbying purposes. According to City Manager Brad Stafford, this is the legislature’s second attempt to pass such legislation.

It amazes me to see what has become of the Astrodome. This building, once widely regarded as the “eighth wonder of the world,” has fallen into a severe state of disrepair. The dome long ago stopped being home to Houston’s major sports teams. Now, with no Astros to bang their trash cans, no Oilers to kick in the door (and who now reside in Tennessee), and no longer the host location for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, there is little incentive for the City of Houston to continue paying for its upkeep.

It is Friday afternoon, and I am predicting a very frustrating week ahead. I realize that I have a vivid imagination and that I expect things to go wrong more often than they do. Every New Year’s Eve I sit on the sofa and practically cover my ears expecting the explosion from a Times Square attack to be heard in Plantersville. It never happened.

If you’ve read my column before, you know I’ve often engaged in self-deprecating humor. In other words, I’m not above making fun of myself in the pursuit of financial gain. Long time readers know that I have thin hair, I can’t grow tomatoes, and Martha Stewart Living, I am not. While my list of shortcomings is extensive, the one thing I had going for me was my memory.

As of this writing I have been retired from the Army Reserve for just over 2 years now. As I look back over my 30-year career, it’s often surprising what shows up in my recollections. For example, as an 18-year-old I had no idea at the time that I was being taught lessons that would stick with me for the rest of my life. One of the “mantras” that I recall was “Be-KnowDo,” and it is something that I still see every day.
