Enjoy our beautiful rivers

January 14, 2014 

Even though I currently live in San Antonio, I was raised in Lebanon and lived a lot of my life in O'Fallon. I always thought the Mississippi and Missouri rivers were beautiful. To my utter dismay, after hearing about how wonderful the San Antonio River is, I couldn't hold back my laughter when I saw it. I totally agree with the mayor of Houston; it's a concrete drainage ditch. No kidding, this past week "they" drained the "river" and, even though Texas has had a drought this past year, filled the "river." Anyone, and I mean anyone, who doesn't believe me, just come on down and get yourself a good laugh. Everyone please enjoy your rivers; you all are so lucky.
