KZSM — Bringing You Women’s Stories from the Texas Hemp Fields

True community happens when people hear and appreciate each other’s stories. KZSM 104.1 FM and KZSM.org bring you the stories of people you might not meet— from research scientists to singer/songwriters and more. From 11 a.m. to noon on the fourth Thursday of each month, you’ll meet the women of “Bluebonnet Mountains,” a nomadic Texas hemp harvest crew. Host Vanessa Velasquez and her co-host Mai Huynh talk with different members of their 25-woman crew each week. “I try to get a few girls in to tell the story of how life brought them to this kind of work,” Vanessa explains. The women talk about their travels, their work stories, and “past life stories from times they may have been on the road with the Grateful Dead.”

Grammy award winners highlight Wimberley Music Festival planned for celebration of a nonprofit's 20th year

It all started in 2004 in a Sunday school class at the Wimberley United Methodist Church. The class helped a local family with basic needs connect with critical resources, which often are not located in Wimberley. That experience shined a light on the need for such an organization in the community, and the Barnabas Connection was born.

Dear Abby

Friendship reforged before being completely abandoned

DEAR ABBY: I am a male scientist at a large university. Four years ago, I was surprised to receive an email from someone with whom I’d been friends many years ago, when he was a postdoctoral fellow in our department. We were good friends back then, but we lost contact when he moved east and quit research. He now works in computer security. After he reinitiated contact, we resumed the friendship, with regular phone calls and emails.
