I'm not gonna go into the events of that horrible night, but I'm just gonna say that I appreciate all of our first responders here in Polk County and in the world over. I want to particularly say that I appreciate our men and women in blue (blue is a symbolic color for all law enforcement) and the job that these guys do. I'm confident that almost 100 percent of the rest of our county feels the same way. I'm not gonna lie, everytime they have a thing like this, I get choked up. The sight of all these guys publicly carrying out this show of respect shakes me to my foundation.

When is the stupidness going to end? Over the weekend during the "Black Entertainment Awards" where rich, privileged actors get yet another moment in the sun, actor Jesse Williams (of Grey's Anatomy fame) took the time to completely politicize the event as he sought to further divide our nation and fan the flames of racism. I'm sick of this stupid crap. Losers like this whiney baby will never be satisfied. We can have a black president, black attorney general, black mayors of major cities, cities run almost entirely by black people (like Baltimore), we can have affirmative action that tilts the tables against others to favor black people and college admission quotas that actually lower test requirement scores for blacks and IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH for a piece of crap like Jesse Williams and his disgusting ilk. After bending over backwards for years and years to satisfy the race baiters and whiney babies like this, if this is their attitude, I say STOP THE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION etc. They're NEVER going to be happy and they're going to hate America NO MATTER WHAT.

Local District Judge Allegedly Didn't Follow Protocol, Heard a DWI Case that She Was Allegedly a Witness to...
LIVINGSTON, June 28, 2016 - I've been very pleased with my AXIS double wall stainless steel insulated cup. AXIS cups are based right here in Livingston. I have family and friends that use YETI. We've had occasional run ins about which is better. I always stick by my AXIS cup that's about half the price of a YETI. AT ANY RATE, the Willster and I teamed up and put together a time lapse video over a 24 hour period to put the argument to rest once and for all. We took a YETI and an AXIS (30 ounce cups) filled each with ice and placed them side by side and used a GO PRO camera. The final results... NO DIFFERENCE. It's a tie! So if you just like spending twice as much money on something, get a YETI. But if you'd rather pay about half the price, and get it customized any way ya like it, and support your local economy, get an AXIS. Click here to visit the AXIS website!

Obama, Hillary, and the usual leftist propaganda machine (called our national media) have seized on the opportunity to politicize the Orlando massacre and blame Christians, conservatives, guns, and Republicans for the massacre (rather than stating the obvious culprit: RADICAL MUSLIMS). Never mind that the guy stated to police why he was doing it (because he "pledged" to ISIS), no, they're still saying that they simply don't have a clue as to what the assailant's motive was. What is going on in the USA? The leftists (not progressives, there's nothing "progressive" about a leftist) are bastardizing common sense and logic as they continue to insult our intelligence, and dumb down our nation with false information, lies, half truths. One of the worst parts is that the leftists have infiltrated all levels of our institutions of education (from college on down to elementary schools). This infiltration of leftist indoctrination into our institutions of education paints a very bleak picture for our nation's future. -- Willie P. Openshaw, Editor

Beefed Up Law Enforcement Presence Slated for Memorial Day Weekend to Combat Drunk Driving...
Law Enforcement agencies in Polk and San Jacinto Counties will conduct a joint DWI Task Force over the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend. The "no refusal" effort is a product of collaboration between Texas Department of Public Safety officials in Polk and San Jacinto Counties, the judges of the 258th and 411th District Courts, the Polk Co...unty District Attorney's Office and the sheriff's departments and municipal police departments in the respective counties. Both counties will experience an increased law enforcement presence over the course of the holiday weekend with a view toward reducing the number of intoxicated drivers on public roadways. Judges and prosecutors will be on duty to prepare and issue search warrants directing that a blood specimen be obtained from suspected drunk drivers. According to Polk County Criminal District Attorney Lee Hon, the "no refusal" effort has been utilized for a number of years in Polk County over peak holiday weekends with great success. "Over the last nine years, we've yet to have an intoxication related crash in Polk County on our no refusal/DWI task force weekends. In fact, our DWI numbers have actually gone down on these heavy traffic weekends," Hon stated. "I was approached recently by San Jacinto County DPS Sergeant David Gustafson about expanding the concept to a joint effort between San Jacinto and Polk Counties and thought it would be a great idea,"Hon added. "Hopefully, the motoring public in both counties will benefit in terms of a safe holiday weekend as a result of this increased law enforcement presence," he concluded.
