Recently, the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) kicked off its month-long campaign to send Valentines cards to the nearly 1,000 residents of its nine State Veterans Homes. The VLB urges Texans to take part in this mission to show these courageous men and women that they are an integral part of our communities.
Every year, the Valley Star Awards offers a great lineup of Wintertainers™ – and this year will keep that promise. The lineup includes some of the Valley favorites that perform at the parks throughout the season. We even have the 2020 Valley Star Awards Male Vocalist of the Year Curt James giving a performance at the event.
Other entertainment for the event is Johnathan Len, Justin Terry, Mario Rosales, Mountain Highway and Rebecca Lawless.

Time marches on. If you were exposed to covid and quarantined, you may feel that time dragged on. It doesn’t have to drag on - now is the time to do all those things you have been planning to do but just never had time. Well, now you have time so let's get on with it.
You can take control and believe me - time will fly if you take time to complete all those projects. The very day that my daughter and I learned that we had been exposed, we were out in my car exploring. It had been a year since I had been down past Space X and to Boca Chica Beach. So off we went.

Great weather brought out the crowd of mainly Winter Texans on opening day, Jan. 13, for the 15th annual two-day Ron Hoover RV & Marine Center open house in Donna.
Sue Stsauver, from Trails End Mobile Home and RV Park in Weslaco, came to see the grand prizes to be given away after having a dream she won a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle and had it shipped home to Minnesota.
Walking through the 36th annual RGV Woodcarvers Show this past weekend, it was clear that if you can envision it, someone can carve, sculpt, burn, paint or chip it into reality.
More than 150 pieces covering a wide spectrum of images and styles were on display over the weekend at the Nomad Shrine Club in Pharr. There were decoys, caricatures, walking canes, gourds, pens, candles and so much more as the carvers showed what can be done with wood.
