our new owner

When Randa Duncan Williams was growing up in Houston in the 1970s, she was an avid reader, devouring everything from novels to literary nonfiction. She was particularly fond of a then-new magazine called Texas Monthly. When her parents’ subscription arrived each month, she would thrill to its true stories of outsized Texas characters. Over the years, she saved piles of old copies, and could quote passages of her favorite articles from memory. And so, when Randa announced on June 25 that she was buying Texas Monthly, we felt we were in good hands. “My family is delighted to provide the resources to support this iconic Texas institution,” she says. “The journalistic integrity and quality for which Texas Monthly is known will remain unchanged.” Her acquisition of this magazine is great news for…

roar of the crowd

“UPON MY DEMISE, MY ASHES ARE TO BE SCATTERED INTO THE WELCOMING ARMS OF THE BRAZOS RIVER FROM THE WACO SUSPENSION BRIDGE SO I MIGHT, OVER THE NEXT FEW MILLION YEARS, WANDER MY WAY THROUGH THE BEST PART OF THE PLANET.” From the Heart I have never written in before, but I wanted to commend Skip [Hollandsworth] for his article [“Sabika’s Story,” May 2019]. It was so lovely and heartbreaking that it moved me to tears. Thank you, Skip, for researching this story and reminding us what’s beneath the headlines. I am in awe. JULISSA TOPETE, AUSTIN Skip has outdone himself on this article. It should be required reading for all Texans concerned about violence in schools. This story is a reminder of how far-reaching the effects of these incidents are, and until we…

marsh mellow

Far away from the cares of urban life, discover a seaside refuge bursting with life,” says Texas Parks and Wildlife’s interpretive guide to Sea Rim State Park. “Bursting with life,” absolutely: the park is home to (or rest stop for) an awesome collection of critters, from neotropical birds and bobcats to coyotes and alligators. And they’ve got the “refuge” part down. The whole swath of coastal plain between the Louisiana state line and the Bolivar Peninsula is one giant patchwork of wildlife sanctuaries, not just Sea Rim but also the J._D. Murphree Wildlife Management Area as well as the Anahuac, McFaddin, and Texas Point national wildlife refuges. But I’m not sure about the “far away” part. That vast acreage of beach and marshland feels almost like a defiant bulwark against…
