Protecting landowners

Burns files legislation to protect property owners from eminent domain abuse

AUSTIN – State Representative DeWayne Burns filed legislation taking aim at eminent domain abuse. House Bill 2684 will help level the playing field for property owners when they faceoff with government entities and corporations with infinitely greater resources. Rep. Burns said that it was his personal experience with eminent domain that prompted him to file the bill.

“I know first-hand the burden that the eminent domain process places on landowners,” Burns said. “That is why I am fighting to ensure property owners are in the best possible position when faced with the taking of their property. In Texas, private property rights are a sacred principle, and I believe this legislation will help preserve that right without adversely affecting the businesses that are helping to grow our economy.”

Divine vocal drama

Bosque Chorale pulls off challenging Mendelssohn oratorio

By Simone Wichers-Voss

In romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio Elijah, first performed in 1847, he depicts events taken from the Old Testament books 1 Kings and 2 Kings. The religious “opera” essentially proclaims the message that those that have faith will be rewarded - faith triumphs.

The Bosque Chorale’s performance of selections from this popular two-part oratorio April 20, exuded faith – the chorale’s faith that under David Anavitarte’s direction they would perform their best; Anavitarte’s faith in his chorale and orchestra to bring the dramatic story alive; the people of Israel’s return to faith in God which would lead them out of the drought; Elijah’s faith in God that ultimately transports him to heaven and the audience’s faith that “their chorale” would amaze them once more with their talented performance.
