Letters to the Editor

Let me begin by stating that my background is public health administration in North Carolina. I was in charge of all communicable diseases among other programs including: pediatrics, adult health programs, geriatrics orthopedics, prenatal clinics and post natal clinics.

Parkinson’s Disease - Don’t go it alone

We’ve heard it and said it ourselves – we treasure Wimberley for its smalltown ambiance and strong sense of community. There are few places of large public encounters, where we see friends, neighbors, familiar faces. How many times do we see someone with a cane, a walker, someone who seems to have a tremor, perhaps a bit unsteady as they walk? If they’re not an acquaintance, we passingly wonder what condition they have.

Kindness at crosswalks

Today as I approached one of those crosswalks with a Yield to Pedestrians sign on the square, there were two women CLEAR- LY waiting to cross. (I know sometimes it’s hard to figure out the intentions of pedestrians, but not this time.) So I stopped and the woman behind me honked at me and gestured her dis approval that I was going to let these people cross. Then from the other side, five cars went flying by without even slowing down. What??? Sadly, this is not the first time I have seen this happen.

Have we heard the last call from a championship duo?

For ten seasons, Wimberley football radio and internet commentators Mike Blackwell and Jerod Robinson, gave the many Texan fans a touchstone Friday night tradition to be proud of. Exciting play by play regardless of the elements or location. For many years I have been glued to my phone while in west Texas, unable to attend the games in person. Home or away we could tune in to follow all the ups, downs, wins, losses, penalties and championships. What fun! Moreover, it is difficult to accept my understanding that our little treasure of a broadcast may have signed off for a final time together from AT&T stadium calling the state championship. We have all grown together in a positive way due in part to kind, generous, energetic and reliable folks like Mike and Jerod. Also, all the others who made it happen. Many of our kids experienced Texan football in one way or another. We were very lucky to have had the pleasure of going along for the radio ride. For the entire Wimberley valley, I say: well done! Thank you for your effort! Keep doing cool stuff.
