THE ECONOMIST: Global Trade

Trade is essential to prosperity, and recent projections indicate that it’s likely to rise significantly in the future. Long-term economic growth in any area is not achieved by swapping things with fellow residents, but rather by what a community, state, or nation makes and sells outside their areas that brings in new resources. As I recently discussed, US exports are growing, with Texas leading the way. It’s one of the primary reasons that the domestic economy has remained resilient through myriad recent challenges.

HONORING THE FALLEN

It was a sweltering hot Memorial Day this year, but that did not stop numerous locals from honoring fallen heroes at the Hays County Veterans Memorial located at the corner of Hopkins Street and Riverside Drive; though many ceremony programs doubled as handheld fans out of necessity. The Master of Ceremonies was David Franklin, a U.S. Navy Veteran, and the service included music by the Aquarena Springs Symphonic Band. The National Anthem was sung by Kiera Hinton, a junior soloist for the San Marcos High School choir, and Girl Scout Troop 1098 led the pledge of allegiance. The posting of the colors was done by San Marcos High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.

The Hays County Commissioners Court proclaimed the week of May 20 through 25 as Search and Rescue Week offering “its thanks to all the first responder agencies and Search and Rescue agencies/organizations that support and work tirelessly on finding those who are lost and bringing closure to the families of the missing,” according to the proclamation issued. In 2023, there were over 48,008 missing persons reports in Texas with 12,827 of them being adults and 35,181 of those children. The proclamation said that “Search and Rescue resources bring closure and aid in the reunification of families,” and that “Search and Rescue professionals, perform flood and swiftwater rescues and evacuations, technical rescues, locate missing children and endangered adults, and otherwise meet their communities’ emergent needs.”
