  • Work of Art: Tattoos don’t just wash off

    On visits to the Abe Montoya Recreation Center, I easily get my fill of tattoo art. Some patrons enter with a mish-mash of strange, multi-colored drawings on their arms, legs and backs. And as for the men, well they have even more to show off.

  • Editorial: Celebrating rich history

    We are fortunate to live in a place filled with historic homes and buildings.

    Drive down Seventh or Eighth Street, and you’ll see an array of gorgeous Victorian homes that were built by wealthy merchants and other well-to-do residents at the turn of the last century.

    Corpus Christi Caller-Times on the hysteria surrounding immigration (July 25, 2014):

    Put those fears of catching ebola from immigrant children to rest.
    Health professionals at the ninth annual Border Health Conference are sending the clear signal that the thousands of children flooding the border from Central America won’t infect us all with exotic diseases.
