So, I’m nearing the end of my third week in Freestone County. There’s been a signifi cant learning curve and I’m still on the uphill side. I was hoping to get out and meet more people, but that hasn’t happened as often as I’d like. Well, I have met Deebo at the feed store while he was fi xing a fl at for me.

I met Daniel at Chaddus Garage while he was working on my truck’s air conditioner. And, I met Bill May, who graciously volunteered to show me what I could still pick up on our old analog scanner. Mr. May is also offering to clue me in on Teague history. Speaking of history, here’s some of mine: I grew up – well, I was born and went to school in Baytown. I grew up, fi nally, in Jacksonville at the age of 45 or so, about the time I met my wife. But, that’s a story for another time. I started my newspaper career in the sports department of my hometown newspaper,

The Baytown Sun, while a senior in high school in the early 1980s. I’ve worked at most positions in daily newspaper newsrooms -- from sports reporter to news reporter to editor. I sold automotive advertising for The Houston Post. The last six years I’ve owned my own paper, The Diboll Free Press.
