Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprung, or so the saying goes. Around Fayette County that means baseball, baby calves and bluebonnets. Growing up here, I’ve seen my fair share of all three. As a kid, there were two things to do for fun in the spring/summer
months – play or watch baseball and go swimming

Know Your Rights!

You can’t keep money you receive by mistake. Q. Do I have to give money back to a bank that gave me $50 too much? I went to a drivethrough window to make a credit card payment.

Where Are The Conservative Counterparts?

Yes, it does look like “the stage is set” as noted by David DeLuca in Friday’s edition of the Record’s “Take Note” as he takes
the liberty of using his “by-line” contributor status to extol his political views as Fayette County Democrat Party Chairman.
