Re: “Reaction to graffiti spells 'troble'

I would ask permission to spray paint over it, if they don't want to do it themselves (the owner). It takes a village....

Re: “MMJ debate: It takes four to tango

Parkview - don't you think it's amazing that the 2 people who have NO experience with MMJ against the idea of dispensaries and skew the stats and the truth, but the 2 who do have experience are in favor and do not skew the stats and the truth? Duh!

Re: “Arkansas tragedy strikes home

I am so sorry for the loss of lives in Arkansas. It is indeed a horrible tragedy. This type of flash flood happens all the time in the Hill Country of Texas, and there is little to no warning and it is not the campers' fault. Whenever you have a low lying area, on a river or creek with higher ground surrounding it, and as you stated above, a huge rainstorm nearby, then there is a chance of flash flooding. And, it doesn't have to be raining anywhere near the campground but somewhere upstream, for a wall of water to rush down the canyon and take everything with it in its path. I remember many years ago canoing one of those rivers in Texas, the Pedernales River, right after such a flash flood. To our horror and amazement, we witnessed in the tops of the trees tents, clothing, sleeping bags, canoes wrapped around the branches, and other personal belongs dangling and ripped apart. Just days before, a 40 foot wall of water rushed downstream in the middle of the night, and took out an entire boy scout troop camping on the side of the river. They had no idea they were in danger, there was no warning. It was a tragic scene to witness afterwards. There are flash flood warnings all throughout the Hill Country of Texas, and I am sure there will now be such warnings on the Arkansas river you mentioned above. Such a sad sad tragedy. Terry
