The Golden Hammer Offers Help to Struggling Courier Blog

January 25, 2017, Conroe – What used to be a proud newspaper, by the name of The Conroe Courier, which the Owen family ran many years ago, has descended into a troubled blog with little fact-checking, poor editing, and a ghost town of an office. Today, it is little more than the Courier blog. The […]

Craig Doyal and the “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng” Method

Magnolia, January 22, 2017 – There’s an interesting contrast between the pro-reform citizens in Montgomery County, which group includes Commissioner James Noack, former State Representative Steve Toth, and Texas Patriots Tea Party PAC Treasurer Bill O’ Sullivan, among thousands of others, and the “establishment,” anti-reform supporters of County Judge Craig Doyal. The former pro-reform group […]

Guest Editorial: “Lipstick on a Pig” with Rebuttal to Doyal, by Commissioner James Noack

Guest Editorial: “Lipstick on a Pig” with Rebuttal to Doyal, by Commissioner James Noack

(Commissioner Noack’s rebuttal comments to a recent editorial of County Judge Craig Doyal are in bold and all caps. The remainder of the editorial Noack had previously published.) Judge Doyal and Commissioner Riley are forceful and hubristic in their intent to destroy the community with the Woodlands Parkway extension. Judge Doyal has wasted your tax […]

Newspaper Death Watch Marches On

Newspaper Death Watch Marches On

  Conroe, January 21 – Traditional newspapers are dying for two primary reasons. First, many of the newspapers hide the truth and have taken on a liberal pro-government bias of which citizens are sick and tired.

January 20, 2017 – President Donald J. Trump’s Inaugural Address was remarkable for it brevity, but more importantly, for the message the 45th President extended to the hearts of every American citizen.

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU READ THE GOLDEN HAMMER NEWSPAPER?

Conroe, January 19 – When citizens read The Golden Hammer newspaper, they enjoy a unique product in this community. The newspaper is just that: a newspaper.

WHAT OUR “DREAM” AS A SOCIETY MUST BE IN 2017

WHAT OUR “DREAM” AS A SOCIETY MUST BE IN 2017

I was born in 1961 and grew up in Dallas during the 1960s. I saw race relations radically different from what we see today. The unity of human spirit that we have in our daily lives is far greater than it was 50 years ago. It’s a reflection of the maturity we have enjoyed as […]

EDITORIAL: ETHICS REFORM PRIORITY FOR COUNTY GOVERNMENT

EDITORIAL: ETHICS REFORM PRIORITY FOR COUNTY GOVERNMENT

Montgomery County’s government desperately needs ethics reform during 2017. The “Axis of Evil” (Doyal – Riley – Clark – Meador) have created a cesspool of nepotism, conflicts of interest, and opacity. County Attorney J.D. Lambright has acted as an enabler and clearly has no conception whatsoever of his professional responsibility to the citizens of Montgomery […]
