  • 30 Years of Celebrating a King

    Jan 14, 2016, 8:33 p.m.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. said the time is always right to do what is right,” in a speech he gave to college students attending Oberlin College on October 22, 1964 entitled "The Future of Integration." Although when King said these poetic words he was referring to the election of that time where his point was “behavior cannot be legislated, and legislation cannot make you love me, but legislation can restrain you from lynching me.” But that is not the only connotation for the words. Those words can bring power to any situation.

  • Mayor Sylvester Turner: Never Giving Up On Him or Houston

    Jan 8, 2016, 4:39 a.m.

    Races are not won by the weak or the strong. Races are won by those who posses endurance. Ecclesiastes 9:11 states, “The race is not given to the swift nor the strong but he who endures until the end.” This might as well be the motto for Sylvester Turner. He is a man that knows how to run a race. In his race to be Houston’s Mayor he did not let any obstacle get in his way. He did not give up on his dream. He kept going no matter how long it took or how much energy he had to expel. He endured his race and now he has won.

  • Be a Healthier You in 2016

    Dec 30, 2015, 1:57 a.m.

    As an old year rolls out and a new one rolls in people tend to do a lot of self- evaluation. Whether a list is made of highs and lows or a simple recall in the mind is done it is natural to want to make improvements or adjustments to present the best self possible. In that shift subjects of getting your financial house in order, learning a new skill, and taking a great adventure may be on the list. But one thing that always tops everyone’s list is something centered on health and fitness. Weight loss, strength training, better eating habits, we all have some health improvements that we want to make. For many of us, that something is getting rid of a few pounds. Be it that we regret that second piece of Aunt Charlotte’s homemade Blue Velvet cake or the extra large scoop of Mama Nita’s sweet potato casserole, the results of over indulging at Thanksgiving and Christmas have caught up with us in a major way and we want the extra weight off.

  • Giving Beyond the Season of Christmas

    Dec 23, 2015, 7:08 a.m.

    With the swipe of a credit card here, wrapping a box there, and tying a bow here this is unmistakably the season of giving. People get a warm feeling in their heart when they give generously one to another. That feeling is exemplified when giving is done to benefit those in the most need. This time of year nonprofit organizations find themselves inundated with able body workers with the heart for giving wanting to donate their time to bless someone else. And though the help is needed and appreciate the help can be a bit overwhelming. These organizations welcome volunteer help during the season but I am imploring volunteers to not forget about them the rest of the year. These organizations don’t just operate in the fall months but all year. Contributions are needed 365 days of the year not just during the season of Christmas.
