Letters – Reader applauds Roland’s courage

To the Editor: Did you miss it – that act of quiet bravery on behalf of Caldwell County?

From the Clocktower – River lovers create trouble – again.

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   It happened again this weekend. On Saturday afternoon, a call came in to local authorities about a missing person on the river.

From the Clocktower – One Final Gift

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   It is extremely uncommon for me to get worked up over celebrity deaths.

Letters – Soccer and Stop Lights

Soccer for fun, not funding To the Editor: I wish to commend the Post-Register for the absence of World Cup coverage, at least in the July 3 and 10 issues. For weeks now U.S. journalism has had soccer on the brain. But Lockhart’s paper has kept its head. Not that I am totally indifferent to […]

From the Clocktower – How bad do government employees really have it?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER It was very interesting, on Monday, to listen to the first round of budget negotiations amongst the Caldwell County Commissioners Court. Budget talks are a summer tradition here in Caldwell County, and while generally I find the talks a bit boring, I have to admit that this year I’m finding them […]

From the Clocktower – Let the River Run.

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER For several years now, the residents of Martindale have been involved in a sometimes-bitter battle that the rest of us in the county tend to ignore.
