Vern Turner is an outspoken Marble Falls, TX, columnist, a retired teacher who serves as one of the few voices of reason and common sense in a very conservative part of the country.  Texas continues to lag behind as far as education is concerned; children need to receive quality education but cuts on the federal budget are set to hurt schools throughout the state.  Vern Turner also talks about history and how the political quarrels of our times, conservatism equated with backwardness, inevitably lead to a lack of progress in our society.
