From the Clocktower – Where do we go from here?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER It’s difficult for me to continue to watch and see the suffering, fear and confusion of my friends and neighbors in the Martindale area. I’ve taken a few trips out to the river, been through the neighborhoods, and seen the carnage. Most of it makes me wonder why it happened, and […]

From the Clocktower – Life, loss and a little bit of luck

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   Several times, since a wall of water came crashing through the San Marcos River, and a deluge followed it from the skies, I’ve heard people say how “lucky” Caldwell County is, that we don’t have a death toll involved with this weekend’s flooding events.

Guest Opinion – Student safety depends on structured discipline

Open Letter to LISD: First I’d like to say thank you to the board and the administration for giving me the opportunity to speak publicly about something I am very passionate about – discipline.

Letters – Reader encourages incorporation

To the Editor: Lytton Springs, Texas. This quiet community stuck in time since the 1800s is, sadly, I fear, no more.

Letters – Readers react to ‘good times’

Veteran reaches out in thanks To the Editor: Sometimes words are few to describe an event that is incredible. And so it is with the Vietnam era Veterans homecoming we experienced on Saturday, April 18 at the football stadium in Lockhart. All the volunteers worked hard to put the show together. Even with the weather […]

From the Clocktower – Commissioners ‘bait and switch’ property sales

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER It was disappointing to me, on Monday morning, to watch the Commissioners grapple over whether or not to sell the two buildings on the Square, the former judicial annex on San Antonio Street, and the “Tax Office” building on Market Street. After all, selling those buildings was an integral part of […]

Letters – Veterans, pride and water

Community brings pride to people To the Editor: Every now and then, one’s heart cannot help but burst with pride and joy regarding their community! That is exactly how I felt on Saturday, April 18.

From the Clocktower – Should we be allowed to choose our safety measures?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER I will not carry a gun…. I’ll carry your books, I’ll carry a torch, I’ll carry a tune, I’ll carry on, carry over, carry forward, Cary Grant, cash and carry, carry me back to Old Virginia, I’ll even hari-kari if you show me how, but I will not carry a gun!  […]
