Fear of arrest prevents man from seeking help he needs

DEAR ABBY: I find myself sometimes wanting to commit the most heinous of crimes. The desire to do this has been with me my entire life. I was sexually abused by my mother and oldest brother. While that’s no excuse, I understand why I may be the way I am.

Mom’s body piercings are becoming targets of ridicule

DEAR ABBY: My sister and I have no interest in body piercing (except our ears), but we have seen it on friends and are not impressed. However, our 44-year-old mom got her nipples pierced and has started wearing jewelry there!

Fencing fundraiser aids Texas Lions Camp: Children with medical disabilities will experience summer camp at no cost

The Texas State Fencing Club hosted a unique fundraiser to benefit the Texas Lions Camp.
On March 6, fencers from across the state traveled to San Marcos to participate in the Lions Camp Benefit Foil Tournament on the campus of Texas State University in San Marcos. The event raised $800 that will go toward providing a free summer camp experience to children with medical disabilities.  
The Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville has been in existence since 1949.  
The Kyle Local Lions, a new Lions club chartered in 2015, assisted in donating awards and providing concessions.
