Food Story  December 14, 2001
"...From your arrival at the restaurant, which anchors a rather unexciting strip mall complex, you know what's in store. This Austin veteran, in business for over a decade, looks like some sort of seafaring barge, its exterior painted a marine blue and hung with sturdy ropes and nets..."

Book Reviews
Books Review  July 22, 1999
"...Left to his own devices, Mike the drummer forms his own group that requires months of rehearsal before they dare play in public. The small-town scene in southern Oklahoma and North Texas is presented in excruciating detail as a process of renting old wooden buildings from suspicious church groups and of outraged redneck parents interrupting his band's set when they barge in and drag their rebellious children off the dance floor in the middle of a hot rendition of "My Baby Does the Hanky Panky."..."

Closed Doors
Arts Story  December 11, 1998, by Sam Martin
"...At the same time, while the carefully staged photos and fictitious subjects of Sherman's Untitled Film Stills series lend us a disturbing yet subtle perspective on the dark side of life, Mark Todd's creations in "Bad Lands" barge into darkness with much more offensive images of real-life horror stories. It's such a change that walking through the three galleries where Todd is showing is like stumbling through a briar patch..."

Ron Paul's Wacky Views Highlight a Bitter Race
News Story  November 1, 1996, by Alex de Marban
"...Robert Hewitt, Jr., a lifelong Republican from Victoria, who has contributed to and volunteered on Republican campaigns -- never Democratic -- for 20 years has switched gears to throw his energy behind Morris' campaign. He's afraid that as a legislator, not only will Paul be unable to get anything done, but he could actually hurt the district's economy with his attempts to stamp out the federal government. Hewitt, whose work for Morris is strictly volunteer, doubts, for example, that Paul would vote for federal funds to support the Victoria County Airport, or the Victoria Barge Canal, which runs from the coast to Victoria and transports products to the petrochemical industry there..."
