Editor: I just received today's paper, and saw the front-page article about the Midway "city leaders" proposing a new City Hall. They may need one - but a $1 million price tag? Are they out of their minds?

I promised last week that I would share with you the results of the latest patent-pending Wikiwinkwink Political Report, courtesy of my colleague, Junior E.

Making Liberty County better

Sometimes, it seems like we have forgotten what Thanksgiving is about. We should be thankful every day. Even the poorest of our poor is still far better off than many people in third world countries.
