It was an amazing honor to be involved in the Hill Country Kids & Family Triathlon this morning and see all the young triathletes giving their all. It is great to see families dedicated to fitness and competing. I have no doubt some of these youngsters will go on to complete nationally. I may have even seen some future Olympic athletes. ...

As we celebrate July 4th, I think it is important that the celebration not outshine the reason for our exuberance. We all should remember that freedom is not free. It was paid for by men and women who willingly spilled their blood to acquire the freedom we enjoy - a freedom that continues to be paid for by our valiant soldiers who sacrifice their time, their families, and their very lives to preserve it.

What began as a simple colony of people yearning for freedom and a better life for themselves and their families has developed into a free nation the likes of which the world has never known and may never again know. We are a nation of free people, the greatest nation the world has ever known, due to the gallantry of our soldiers and their allegiance to a purpose bigger than any one individual or even the sum of their parts.

Whether you are one who has given all you had or given nothing, enjoy the 4th of July and celebrate as you see fit. But please, take a moment to bow your head with me, pray for our country, and thank God for our freedom and for those who laid down their lives for our nation – those our history celebrates as well as those we never knew and whose names are lost to the passage of time.

I had the extreme honor of sitting on an Eagle Scout review board for one of the finest young men I have ever had the pleasure to meet. After extensive questioning, the board voted unanimously to advance Hunter Inglish to the rank of Eagle Scout.

Congratulations Hunter. I expect you to accomplish great things!

On this Memorial Day, we have so much to be thankful for. Our entire way of life in America and the freedom we enjoy are due to the sacrifices of our brave men and women in the military. Do more than be thankful this Memorial Day. Find a Veteran and thank them personally for all they’ve done and the sacrifices they’ve made. ... See MoreSee Less

Constable Michael Torres and I survived the entire Leadership Challenge Course of the Texas Constables Leadership College at the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute in Huntsville. We were a little tired but no worse for wear.

It was a great day in the woods with 20 other constables, command staff, and supervisors, learning about each other, ourselves and being valuable members of a team. All these physical and mental exercises and the academic portions of the training are designed to help us become strong, successful leaders who are prepared to serve our citizens to the best of our ability.

Once Constable Torres and I graduate, all five of your Hays County Constables along with several of our deputies will have completed the Texas Constables Leadership College. That is pretty rare and I believe it demonstrates our combined commitment to excellence for the people we serve.
