Every business should review finances monthly

By JAMES LEAVELLE

It seemed like a good idea at the time… starting your own business that is. After all, how hard could it be? All I have to do is buy or make something and sell it to someone who wants or needs it. Simple. All you had to do was establish a legal business structure, set up an account with the State Comptroller’s office, find a business location, and obtain some financing.

TSCRA remains active on state issues during interim

By PETE BONDS

The 85th Texas legislative session will convene on Jan. 10, 2017 in Austin. We must keep in mind that pre-filing of legislation starts in November. It is for this reason that the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) is working hard during the interim to keep a pulse on important issues facing ranchers and landowners.

'Spotlight' win shining moment for journalism

In case you missed it Sunday night, a movie featuring newspaper journalists won Best Picture at the 88th Annual Academy Awards. While most of my Twitter and Facebook friends were applauding Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning an Oscar, I was elated that “Spotlight,” the newspaper movie, won two awards. Sorry, Leo you may have acted well in your movie, “The Revenant,” but the journalists won the big one.

The Ladies In Nebraska

By LEE PITTS
 
I've been writing a syndicated column for 35 years now. Thirty two years of that time was spent on the syndicated column you're reading, and three years when I wrote a humor column under an assumed name because I didn't want to disgrace the family name. When I was 21 I worked for a livestock weekly as a contract worker trying to sell cattle advertising. I was terrible at it. I couldn't sell French fries, a Coke and a burger to a starving teenager What I really wanted to do was write.

Neighbors outstanding in economic development

By DAVE ERICKSON 

I thought it fitting to pay a tribute to our good friend and economic development partner, San Angelo Chamber of Commerce President Phil Neighbors, who many of you know passed away unexpectedly a week or so ago. During this time I have reflected not only on Phil’s positive personal life, which came to light for many of us, but also his professional life as a leader and partner in San Angelo’s economic development and business development.

Keeping our promise

By WILL HURD 

Obama Care was passed amidst a lot of promises – lower premiums, smaller out-of pocket costs, claims that the average family would save about $2,500 a year, and maybe most famously, the President’s pronouncement “That if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” which went on to become Politifact’s Lie of the Year.

Truck Genetics

by LEE PITTS 

I loved Animal Breeding when I was in college. No, not that kind of animal breeding, get your mind out of the gutter. I'm referring to a class I took where we learned about heritability. I'm so old that when I went to college there were no EPD's for beef cattle and that's a shame because that stuff fascinates me. I'm so interested because of all the recessive traits in my family that waited for me to come along so they could express themselves.
