LOST DOG? MALE BOXER
I have a male boxer that showed up at my house 2 days ago. None of my neighbors have any idea where the dog came from. He has no collar, but is not skinny and is very well behaved. I live in Texas Landing and hope to find who the owner of this dog is.
Thanks Brandon Wigent

We have talked about the role that the chuck wagon, the chuck wagon cook and the cowboys that drove the cattle to market played in the development of the cattle industry in the mid 1860’s. What were the routes that were taken by the trail herds? The herds were driven 6 to 8 miles per day...(Click here for more)
Ask a Lawyer: With Travis E. Kitchens, Jr., Lawyer
If you or someone you know (or are financially responsible for) have been to the emergency room, been transported by an ambulance, been life-lighted by helicopter, or other major trauma, you should have a pretty good idea on what type of expenses you will have to pay if you are in an accident and have these serious situations occur. But even a minor accident with injuries can result in medical expenses, lost income, incidental expenses, and legal fees that will quickly use up all the minimum liability limits required by Texas law...(Click here for more)
In the 1800’s people, especially cowboys, had little to look forward to but good food and fellowship with each other. These cowboys lived in a harsh environment and had an extremely tough job in the winter. Cold, rain, and snow was an every day occurrence for them....more

Estate planning involves decisions made, normally with the assistance of lawyers and accountants, to minimize the amount of taxes you will pay when you die, as well as to establish who you want to inherit your estate. A properly planned estate can save you legal fees, taxes and other expenses of administration...more
One of the greatest freedoms our nation has is freedom of the press. This freedom comes with responsibility. Responsibility to report the news accurately, and not slant the news. As a local reporter, I'll take my place at the front of the line for not always getting everything exactly right. I guess it's the human factor. If it's not a typo, it's not grammatically perfect, if not grammatically perfect, then there's an inaccuracy as to what actually happened. With these imperfections comes criticism. I understand AND I appreciate the criticism. I know that it just comes with the job of being a reporter...more
