This is National Newspaper Week across America, and like all good members of our industry, the Enterprise always joins in with the celebration. But this year, as we looked at the material designed to help promote our craft, the editorial cartoon shown with this column, struck home. That image of a child sitting in her father’s lap […]

The first presidential debate of 2016 is now history, and it appears almost certain that the United States is in heap big trouble. Unless, of course, people wake up and take this country back. Businessman Donald Trump is a bombastic firebrand with a questionable grasp on the issues and apparently no concrete plans for much […]

Delving into the depths of the past, we present to you for the 20th time our annual Pioneer Edition of The Donley County Leader, included in this week’s Enterprise. This special section has become a favorite of our readers and advertisers and is certainly a favorite of your editor. For a lover of history, it […]

If you didn’t get out of the house last weekend, you missed a terrific time in Clarendon. Kimberly Britten and Jordan Green breathed new life into an old landmark and launched their Whistle-Stop Trade Days on Friday. Approximately 100 vendors and literally countless customers and on-lookers crowded the former Chamberlain Motor Company property during the […]

The Clarendon City Council has some big decisions to make in the weeks ahead, and its members are asking for your input on how they should proceed.

Outsider candidates are making a loud impact in the 2016 presidential campaign, showing that a large number of voters are dissatisfied in […]

Another Republican debate, another “Sweet Lord, save us” two hours of life wasted. Six would-be presidents took the stage Saturday night in South Carolina for another round of interruptions, lies, and insults in an auditorium ironically called the “Peace Center.” South Carolina voters will get to speak soon. Their decision will no doubt continue the […]

Many primary voters will find themselves in a pickle when they start voting next week. Texas finds itself in the unusual position of actually mattering in a primary contest for the first time in several election cycles. But the choice of candidates is, well, pathetic at best. For Democrats, it comes down to two choices… […]

President Obama’s days in office are numbered, and the end can’t come soon enough for the Kitten in Chief. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the next occupant of the Oval Office will be any better than the current guy. People who say “it can’t be worse” often find out that it can […]

The wait is over, and happy days are here again. Blue Bell Ice Cream has returned to local stores. Let the angels sing and the people rejoice! The year 2015 has been a trying one for Texans. We have faced the kind of adversity that tested whether we had the fortitude of early pioneers who […]
