Welcome to our blog. We will be covering several issues related to life in East Texas. Right now, one of our biggest issues in the Tyler, East Texas area is a proposed jail bond in Smith county. We will be adding posts pretty frequently between now and the November election, and most of our attention will be focused on this issue. We will migrate some of our material from two other blogs onto this one, and hope to effectively meld them all into one, more manageable whole.
