Opinion

H-E-B should build elsewhere

Editor,

 

H-E-B wants to build at Hunter and Wonder World. The city is about to allow it. This is a bad move.

I’m not driven by “not in my back yard” sentiments. I like walkable communities. My husband bikes to work. I was intrigued by having more dining options in some variation of the Lindsey Hill project. We’re keen on development. 

Court’s Voter ID ruling a victory for all Texas voters

Dear Editor:

 

As Unitarian Universalists, one of the Principles of our faith is “To affirm and promote the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” In that regard, we were delighted when, on July 20, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the Texas photo ID law as discriminatory and in violation the Federal Voting Rights Act. 

Why we should keep Cape’s Dam

My wife Evelyn and I own and operate T G Canoes and Kayaks and have done so for the last 31 years. We are probably the oldest outfitter selling and renting canoes and kayaks in the State of Texas. We are in our 31st year of putting boy scouts, girl scouts, church groups, families, and individuals on the wonderful San Marcos River. T G Canoes and Kayaks also has a business concession with the city of San Marcos for put-ins and take-outs within the city limits. The left channel of Thompson’s Island is used for these purposes.  

Float Fest and respect for the river

Zach Haflin - Eyes of the San Marcos River

The Eyes of the San Marcos River is a river activist group that was created in 2014 in response to the many issues related to the rapid increasing of traffic on the river and land use issues in the watershed.  The group was started by three Texas State University Alumni and now includes over 2,600 members on their Facebook page.  The following is a post regarding Float Festival 2016 on the San Marcos River in Martindale.
