Welcome To Case's Column

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. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

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.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

My Two Cents About The Realignment Rumor Mill

Posted 12-08-2017 at 05:15 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

When a school district has more than eight high schools in it, you have to expect a little controversy when change is in the offing. We stand two months away from the biennial University Interscholastic League realignment for athletics, and as always, the rumor mill gets a-flurry with much activity.

This next round could be the most intriguing ever in Texas history. Class 5A is going to feature two tiers based on enrollment, Division I and Division II. Instead of...

December, Feliz Navidad, Remembering Things, And Merle Haggard

Posted 12-04-2017 at 06:44 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 12-04-2017 at 08:59 PM by case44

I could have listed a few more things, but I would have run out of precious space in the title spot.

You now know what month of the year this is. The to-do list tends to get a wee bit bigger. Christmas cards, Christmas card lists, gift lists, gift wrapping, bringing out the Christmas tree, luncheons at work, Jose Feliciano, Merle Haggard, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, Santa, Rudolph, Charlie Brown, the Grinch, band concerts, drives through...

Some FYI About FYA: Not A Flashing Yellow Error

Posted 12-01-2017 at 07:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Maybe this is an encouraging sign, that people are actually figuring it out now. It was a genius of an idea by the Federal Highway Administration many moons and traffic signal changes ago. If you'll recall, I did a post on this particular phenomenon a few years ago, but we've come a very long way since that keyboard scribble.

Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) really works. Not only that, but people are adjusting to these positive changes on the roads. Still, there...

Something's Keeping Me From Sleeping

Posted 11-28-2017 at 09:10 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

All I get each day is twenty-four hours. That's all. As it is, I am choosing to work long hours and end up spending less time at the abode.

If only we could all just get thirty-six hours in a day instead. Problem is, our timepieces would look really weird, especially if that time happens to read 18 o'clock. Then again, there are things keeping me from getting some needed sleep when too many errands and too many chores have to get done. On top of that, ...

Interstate 27 Extension Discussion Heats Up Again, And This Time Could Be The Charm

Posted 11-27-2017 at 01:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Before this writer gets too far ahead of himself, consider that this can had been kicked around a few times previously by the Texas Department of Transportation and West Texans who would like to see fruition on more north-to-south mobility. Leaders now are more optimistic than ever.

So, with that, we can kick the proverbial can around again. Interstate 27 and a possible southern extension of it are going to be discussed again. And, yes, along with all that will come...
