Harlingen – It all started with a pain in the hip area. John Hughes, 76, of San Antonio, Texas, didn’t think much of it and chalked it up to a bad hip. He decided he should probably see an orthopedic doctor. But, on the daily walk with his dog, the…

Today I happened to find your online edition and saw the cartoons. It’s interesting to me that I learned the word Shrdlu from my father, Sam Gerald. Daddy was the editor (and, I think, part owner) of the La Feria News when those cartoons were used, and I spent many…
