Well, we have a launch of a new project involving, um . . . me.
KETR-FM has posted my first essay for its website. You can read it here.
I chose to comment on the Texas teacher pay increase that’s now under consideration in the Texas Legislature. The Senate is poised to approve a $5,000 annual raise for public school teachers; senators will send it to the House. If the House approves it, the issue goes to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk for his expected signature.
I am thrilled to be part of this new endeavor. My association now is with Texas A&M University/Commerce and its radio station, which is affiliated with National Public Radio.
It’s a whole new gig for me. I want to give thanks to KETR news director Mark Haslett for giving me a chance to offer some perspective through the radio station.
I feel as though I’ve been given a fresh chance to pursue an aspect of a craft that gave me many years of enjoyment.
