One night in McCamey

Surely they were not actual sounds   from a flesh-andblood ox with nostrils flared, disrupting  the order of a Sunday morning. But the bellowing- -imagined or not—sounded like a wounded beast reduced to his knees in surrender to a “week that was.”

Ownership of groundwater an issue, challenge

In 1904, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that landowners could pump all of the groundwater they want from under their land without being held liable to others for drainage. This ruling confirmed the “rule of capture” and established that landowners have an ownership interest in the groundwater beneath their land.

What will keep unfounded Ebola reports from ‘going viral?’

So how scared should we be about the worldwide Ebola virus crisis? For nearly all of us, the answer  to that question will come through what we see, hear and read in the news media  and in the U.S. that places a unique burden on those free to print, broadcast or post stories as they wish about efforts to control the spread of the virus.
