AUSTIN — As Tropical Storm Cristobal moved north in the Gulf of Mexico from the Yucatan Peninsula toward Louisiana, the weather system’s potential impact on East Texas grew and Gov. Greg Abbott on June 5 addressed the situation in a news conference.
I received an email Thursday morning from apple.com that suggested I might have recently downloaded an app while I was in mainland China. Since I had just woken up, and my eyes were still a bit blurry, and the words in the email seemed extra tiny, I had to squint a bit to reread the message and did reconfirm what was written – that I had indeed been to China.

My first memory of Mr. Willie Williams is meeting him when I was nine years old. My dad was a teacher and a coach, and we had just moved to Paris, Texas, where my dad had gotten a new coaching job. I met Coach Williams during the fall of that year. Mr. Williams was coaching at Mount Pleasant High School and they were playing basketball at Paris High School. I remember my dad introducing me to Coach Williams that night, and I remember watching the Mt. Pleasant Tigers whip up on the Paris Wildcats. I was what you might call a “gym rat,” and I had a basketball in my hand all of the time. I had no idea that my relationship with Willie Williams was just beginning.
