May 2017 Letters

TCP Talk

Letters and comments from our readers

Historic Anniversary

I, too, lived through that storm. My family was living in Guymon, Oklahoma. I was only 13, and my mother was a schoolteacher. She will turn 100 on May 16.

I-35 Attractions

We really enjoyed 35 on 35 [March 2017]. While we were pleased that our wonderful Frank Buck Zoo made the list, we were disappointed the story did not include Texas’ Medal of Honor Park in Gainesville. This beautiful park recognizes every Medal of Honor recipient in the history of our country.

Editor’s note: Valor Always Welcome [March 2014] featured Gainesville’s Medal of Honor Host City Program.

Texas Holiday

I just finished reading the March issue. What a great disappointment! You didn’t once mention Texas Independence Day, March 2.

Editor’s note: TCP honored Texas Independence Day with a post and links on Facebook. The March Pick of the Month in Around Texas was the Texas Independence Celebration in San Benito. Also, Stirring Delivery [February 2017] follows the path of William Travis’ Victory or Death letter.

Eating Healthy

In response to the letter Healthy Dialogue [March 2017], I would like to point out that, except sugar, all the ingredients the reader listed are, indeed, healthy.

I was diagnosed as prediabetic with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity. I have chosen to control these problems by eating a healthy diet of high fat, protein and very low carbohydrates. Carbohydrates (sugars) are the enemy we must do battle with.

Eating Cajun

The Cajun recipes are great [Ragin’ Cajun, February 2017]. We tried and loved all four of them. Although I cook a lot, I had never tried Cajun cooking.

Once a Texan …

As a native Texan living elsewhere, your magazine is a wonderful link to my roots. The February issue was one of your best. As I read it from cover to cover on a dreary morning in Colorado, I felt like I was back home and realized that once a Texan, always a Texan—no matter where you reside.

Concern for Community

I am a family member of the old Coker Cemetery in Cooke County. We needed to have our 40-foot flagpole rope replaced and had no way to do it.

I contacted Cooke County EC to see if someone could help me. I was told to leave the rope by the pole and somebody from the co-op would make it happen. I went out to do some cleaning last week, and sure enough, the new rope was up on the pole. I want to thank Cooke County EC for helping us honor the families of our cemetery.
