Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings "Case's Column". I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, I'll set aside a place here for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

Regards,

Two Years Later, KOKE-FM Sounds Better Than Ever

Posted Yesterday at 11:10 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

When Austin's KOKE-FM came back to the airwaves two years ago, the current staffers were taking their time trying to settle into a format that they would need for the air. The emphasis for the music was Texas and Austin country music mixed with some old-time country and even some Southern rock. Things were very sloppy technically at the beginning, but the programming has gotten so much better now.

KOKE-FM now plays in three places on the radio in Austin: 98.5 and 99.3 on...

Obama's Amnesty Order: Bad For A Prosperous America

Posted Yesterday at 09:37 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Well, guess who spoke to the American people again? Yes, it happened last night, and, no, this writer didn't even bother watching or listening. Your pathological liar-in-chief known as Barack Hussein Obama decided to unlawfully act on his own to let illegal aliens come and inhabit our precious American soil. There will certainly be a fight put up by a number of Americans over this unconstitutional and unilateral maneuver by President Amnesty on Thursday, not the least of which...

Best Year For Band In Frisco? No Doubt It's This Year, Hands Down

Posted 11-18-2014 at 06:35 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In seven high schools in Frisco, Texas, you'll get at least seven stories. And when it comes to band programs in each of the seven high schools, you will see that there's plenty of excitement in the place that I call The Winner's Circle.

Frisco ISD certainly embodies the look of a winner. Every precious one of those high schools garnered first division ratings at the UIL Marching Contest back in October. All of the shows were fun to watch. The best of the best were...

I-69 Update: I-369 Route Around Marshall Selected

Posted 11-18-2014 at 05:52 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

More workings are continuing with the Texas I-69 network of roads, and more progress continues to be made. Civic leaders and residents in Marshall, Texas, have gotten together and settled on a new bypass route for the new highway. And, no, it wasn't through rock-paper-scissors.

Here's the link by my friends at the Texas Alliance: Community Continues Looking at I-369 Route Options at Marshall

There's still some work to be done, but they've...

Frisco Playoff Football: Only One Still Stands

Posted 11-15-2014 at 06:44 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Well, what a difference one playoff game can make. And that can be looked at three ways here. In District 9-5A (Texas), the high school playoff picture was thought to be rosy for two teams (Centennial and Wakeland). What we have here now is an unpleasant surprise if you're a fan of the aforementioned Titans and Wolverines. Frisco had three schools make it to the playoffs, two that were expected to make it (Guess who? The previously-mentioned two) and one that surprised a lot...
