David Crockett visits Hernandez Elementary School

David Crockett became a part of Texas history when he came to Texas in early 1836 looking for land to settle. But soon after arriving in Texas he was asked to participate as a delegate to the Convention at Washington-on-the-Brazos or to go to The Alamo to help William B. Travis.  
He decided to go on to San Antonio to join Texas’ fight for independence from Mexico.  
Crockett was the fifth child of John and Rebecca Crockett, born on Aug. 16, 1786, in Greene County, Tennessee.

Dear Abby: 3/11/16

Mom prefers being home alone over hanging out with friends


DEAR ABBY: My son is driving me crazy. He’s worried because I don’t have friends I hang out with. He said it’s not normal for a woman to not want to have friends. I say it is. He said if Dear Abby says I’m OK, he will let it rest.
