By Richard Zowie —
In 1983, when I was 10, on our way home to Beeville, my father and I traveled through Fredericksburg.
I remember a tall building — it may have been a church — and thinking the city looked very historical.
Little did I know that, 30 years later, I would return to Fredericksburg to work at the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post.
Goodbye, South Texas Coastal Bend; hello, Texas Hill Country.
Following almost nine years living in Michigan and working in radio, news and retail, I am now back in Texas, for good.
Michigan’s cool summers and falls were great, and the winters didn’t bother me —except when it was time to drive. I doubt I’ll ever miss those miserable Maalox moments driving on icy roads or during windy, heavy snow storms — especially at night or in the early morning. Several times I slid on those roads, sometimes off into ditches.
