Many folks share my inherent feelings about predators; we dislike them because of their nature but know they are an intricate part of the natural world. They are genetically programmed to kill to survive. I detest the idea of a coyote pulling down a newborn whitetail fawn or a northern shrike biting through the spine of a cardinal at our bird feeder, and then impaling the song bird on a thorn while he rips him apart. I understand in the big scheme of things, predators are a part of nature and there is a reason for their existence. As a hunter, I also assume the role as predator but like the vast majority of hunters, I strictly adhere to the game laws and bag limits determined by trained biologists whose job it is to determine how many game animals of each species needs to be removed each year to insure a proper balance. Largely because man has caused the natural cycle of nature to be disrupted, we now assume the task of keeping numbers in check.

The varsity boys and girls golf teams played at Firewheel Old Golf Course on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021. This is the varsity group’s first spring tournament, and they had a perfect day to compete.
Yes, it really is March, but I am not quite sure that the “cold is over.” In my memories are recollections of really cold spells and some quite heavy snow showers. But, I realized I was not physically “46” any more when I wrestled with the “Big C.” Maybe my memory is not “46” either! Let’s look at snow in March first. Keep in mind that this is for DFW and not for the outlying areas, which vary greatly!

President Joe Biden said Wednesday that Texas made a “big mistake” by removing its statewide mask mandate and suggested the decision reflected “Neanderthal thinking.”
A year as unusual and challenging as 2020 means there may be some additional factors that can impact your tax return, from stimulus payments, potential job changes and unemployment benefits, to virtual work transitions and more.

If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that life can be unpredictable. Having sufficient life insurance can provide financial stability and security to loved ones during times of uncertainty.
Beautiful landscaping can add instant curb appeal to a property. But beauty isn’t the only thing that makes idyllic landscaping attractive to homeowners. Some landscaping features, such as shade trees, save homeowners money while adding aesthetic appeal.
Speedy, reliable internet is something people have quickly grown accustomed to. That’s no doubt why dropped WiFi signals can be so frustrating.
As travel restrictions and popular trends like staycations have changed the way many people escape from their day-to-day lives, rediscovering classic, outdoor winter activities like snowmobiling can provide a simple way to spend time with loved ones.
