Teen hopes to inspire others to get involved

By Randall Luker

Zoeé Turner is not your typical teenaged girl. Sure, she likes boys and fashion, carries her phone everywhere and is even trying out for the VISD freshman volleyball team, but she shows an exemplary willingness to sacrifice for others, a trait she has shown from an early age.

Zoeé first caught the public’s attention in 2011, when an article in The Vidorian Shopper featured her cutting and donating her hair to Locks of Love, an organization that provides wigs for children with long term hair loss due to a medical condition.

A deal that must not be broken

By Bob Jackson

Medicare is 53 years old this month. The Congress elected during this year’s midterm elections will likely determine what Medicare’s future is, including whether it will continue meeting the promise made to those who have paid into the system over the years.

That’s why it is in the best interest of every American voter to find out whether their member of Congress will work to improve Medicare on behalf of beneficiaries or cut Medicare and pass the costs on to the rest of us. With this in mind, we need to show up at the polls and vote.

Select panel considers approaches to mass shooting prevention

By Ed Sterling

AUSTIN — A special interim committee of state lawmakers met July 24 at the Texas Capitol to further explore what can be done to prevent mass shootings like the one that resulted in 10 deaths and 10 injuries in May at Santa Fe High School.

Testimony before a hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Violence in Schools & School Security centered on “red flag” laws, in which a law enforcement entity or family member could petition a judge who may then order that a potentially dangerous person temporarily be prohibited from purchasing or otherwise acquiring or possessing a firearm.
