"...As for transportation, the larger questions surrounding regional commuter rail have not yet surfaced in the House or Senate, but plenty of time remains for that much-debated topic to appear. Capital Metro's sales tax, harshly challenged but triumphant during the last legislative cycle, may be challenged again this time around..."
"...A more telling indicator of the discouragement that faces Texas novelists is a list of the many gifted novelists of the last 15 years who continue to go shamefully out of print. This list of talent, all in their writing prime, would now include Sarah Bird (Alamo House), Max Crawford (Lords of the Plain), Steve Harrigan (Jacob's Well), William Hauptmann (Storm Season), Jan Reid (Deerinwater), Clay Reynolds (Agatite), Allen Wier (Blanco), and some talented lesser-knowns such as Sarah Glasscock and the neglected Houston comic writer Michael Zagst..."
"...In November 1985, Aleshire quit his job as assessor-collector to run against Renfro, a fellow Democrat who had been county judge for 10 years. Surprisingly, Aleshire easily beat the incumbent in the primary and went on to beat Republican Allen Clark in the November 1986 general election..."
"...Saving Country Music tastemaker Kyle "Trigger" Coroneos and Glide Magazine senior editor Neil Ferguson had their notebooks out. Matt Allen, whose mission to give away ice cream at music festivals landed him on the cover of the Chronicle in 2006, scooped cones for artists, Public Hi-Fi Records operator Fabian Perez tour managed, and onetime Spoon front-of-house engineer Jeff Byrd ran sound..."

"...In April 2004, Carter and his girlfriend, Leketha Allen, robbed Tomlin, an 89-year-old retired veteran with jars of cash stashed throughout his home. Carter taped Tomlin's hands and legs together and covered his mouth with duct tape before the couple ransacked the house and stole $6,000 and a shotgun..."

"...It's sometimes sneaky, popping up in a shellfish crudo or an otherwise lean venison heart. It was in the first course of the first chef-prepared meal I enjoyed after my hospital stay: oysters with watermelon mignonette from Jack Allen's..."

"...SB 319 (Ken Armbrister, D-Victoria) and HB 246 (Ray Allen, R-Grand Prairie) grants personhood to fertilized eggs. Marketed by its supporters as opposing violence against women, it doesn't actually increase penalties for pregnant women who are victims of violent crime..."
"...Dramatizing the pull of music on a human life is no easy task, but if there's a theatre in Austin fully equipped to address the challenge, it's Zach, primarily because of Artistic Director Dave Steakley. Steakley is well-known locally and nationally for his productions of contemporary musicals, and in shows such as Dreamgirls, The Gospel at Colonus, Avenue X, Tapestry: The Music of Carole King, Jouét, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, he's shown an uncanny knack for portraying the impact that music can have on a life and the point where drama is best expressed through music..."
"...God's Army isn't likely to win any converts in the theatre, but at the very least it's as inoffensive a proselytization as I've seen in some time. There's Elder Dalton, who begins each day with the motto “Let's go do some good,” and then proceeds to drive a newcomer, Elder Allen (Brown), up the wall with his rock-hard piety..."
"...However, this is Rollins through the ages, and although the editing scales him down into digestible chunks, there's still plenty of random rage filtering through his world view, making sections of the prose and nearly all the "poetry" the worst kind of challenge for a reader expecting craft, subtlety, and irony to wind through the words. Still, though Rollins still primarily works toward a specific fan base, this collection, for perhaps the first time in his lengthy career, reaches out to the reader who might not be sold outright on the Rollins mystique of self-promotion..."
