The United States Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedoms and to ensure those unalienable rights to every American.

I would like to thank the community for all the support and for welcoming us with open arms, the Main Street organization in every effort they have given to help make our business successful and bringing in our customers, but most importantly I would like to thank God for giving us all the s…

I read The Kilgore News Herald issue of July 18th. There were two stories that had common parallels, but many readers may not have noticed. On page 2, was a story: “Masonic Lodge members install new slate of officers. The story was very complete, accurate and thorough. I even visited Danvill…

I am a KHS graduate and my kids are 3rd generation KISD students. I am deeply concerned about the direction in which our school district is headed. Discipline problems, teacher retention and low test scores are just a few issues that have given myself and many other parents cause for worry. …

Can you imagine going to school and not having your basic school supplies. Can you picture yourself as a pre-school student not having the box of crayons your needed to complete your task. Maybe you are in high school seeking your diploma with a need for notebook paper. I'm talking only the …

A recent Facebook post showed an image of some elementary school students, hands over hearts, with a caption indicating that the school was “forcing them to stand during the National Anthem. Readers were asked to “share if you think this is a good idea. If this does not bother you on some le…

H.L. and Lyda: Growing Up in the H L Hunt and Lyda Bunker Hunt Family as Told by Their Eldest Daughter

A key element being overlooked in the ongoing debate on “Gun Control” is the purchase and sale of unlicensed firearms by private individuals. Although dealers have restrictions to follow under the law, it is perfectly legal for an individual to bypass all of that. Many of…

I would like to share my appreciation to Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Tx. The care I received was outstanding from beginning to end.

According to social media, the answer to the “mass shootings” in America is simple... “Put prayer back in school and it will end.” Seriously? How about, “We never had this problem 40 years ago when every other high school student had a rifle …

The Lone Star Flag was adopted in 1839, and flew over the Republic of Texas before statehood (1845). It was a powerful symbol to the south, as Texas was a Confederate state (1861-1865).

I would like to publically thank Ozarka Water in Hawkins for donating four pallets of bottled water to Arp Independent School District. The water system of the City of Arp has been found to have excessive levels of asbestos in their drinking water. The city water pipes are over 50 years old …

Patrick Warren has lived in Whitehouse almost all of his life. He loves God and people and, like his mother, hates trash on the road. He walks daily and waves at most cars. His wife died a few months ago and walking helps relieve the stress.

About a month ago, I was driving north out of Whitehouse on 110 and saw a man walking south on the eastbound side waving to random cars as they drove by. At first I thought he was hailing a ride, and I felt it a bit “odd” that he would be waving at random cars. Day after …
