Usually when we use the term beach book, were talking about a novel or other interesting book intended for reading at leisure while looking out at the beach or lounging by the pool.

Beaches of the Gulf Coast by Richard A. Davis Jr. (Texas A&M University Press, $35 flexbound) is not that kind of book. Rather, its a book about beaches in general, and Gulf of Mexico beaches in particular.

The first part of the book deals with general characteristics and dynamics of beaches, then segues into the specific beaches along the Gulf Coast, from Florida to Texas, as well as Mexico and Cuba. Texas beaches get 30 pages and more than 50 color photos.

Certainly an informative and interesting book, but one to read before going to the beach.

Local History: The Shackelford County Historical Commissioned has produced a pictorial history, Shackelford County (Arcadia Publishing, $21.99 paperback).

Arcadia specializes in local pictorials and has published books about Abilene, Sweetwater, Haskell, Stamford, Ranger and many other Texas towns through its Images of America Series.

Shackelford County is a little different from most of the other Arcadia books that Ive seen in that, in addition to dozens of archival photographs, it includes short introductory essays to the various sections by Sunday Tidwell, Jane Lenoir, John A. Matthews, A.V. Jones, Jon Rex Jones, Wilma Jo Tucker Mitchell, Duston Brooks, Melinda Lucas, and the late Lawrence Clayton.

Bottom line is: Readers in Albany and Moran will find plenty of good reading as well as wonderful old photographs in this 128-page collection.

Two new Texas books from The History Press:

Painting the Town Orange by Pete Gershon ($21.99 paperback) tells the stories behind Houstons eclectic visionary art environments, such as the Orange Show and the Beer Can House.

Busloads of gun rights advocates and veterans from across the state rallied with the Second Amendment Action Group on the steps of the state Capitol today to oppose expansion of gun control laws.

Russ Stump of Pine Grove, a Navy Vietnam War veteran, said he came with 13 members of the Pine Grove American Legion to support the Second Amendment.

We want to make sure its preserved. American Legion veterans fought for the country, we support the Second Amendment. We know what its like as a veteran to have fought over, to protect the rights of our citizens, Stump said.

Theyre trying to put in stricter laws, and restrict what type of weapons were allowed to have, Stump said.

He said he fears gun rights are being slowly eroded.

Its only one this time, maybe two the next time, Stump said.

Three busloads of sportsmen came from the Beaver County area, said Larry Infantozzi of the Green Valley Sportsmans Club. We want to make sure our rights are not infringed upon, he said.

The event, which began at 10 a.m., was organized by state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler, and featured a trio of retired military men speaking about the importance of the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.

The featured speaker was Capt. Sean Parnell, a retired U.S. Army combat veteran, Ranger and author of the book “Outlaw Platoon.”

He spoke of the Revolutionary Army, fighting against desparate odds, under terrible conditions to secure independence for what would be the United States, and the legacy they left.

Crowd rallies at state Capitol in support of Second Amendment

“Floating islands of vegetation” in Saguaro Lake are posing a danger to boaters during low-light hours of the day, the Mesa Ranger District said.

Native vegetation called “bulbrush” and “rush” are mysteriously breaking away from shore in clumps, said Recreation Staff Officer Jason Scow. Another non-native plant, “giant reed” also thrives in a moist environment and is part of the floating vegetation problem.

The masses are difficult to see during sunrise and sunset and could be dangerous if a speeding boater were to hit one of the larger ones, said Scow.

Scow told boaters to “be alert and take the necessary precautions.”

Saguaro Lake boaters warned of 'floating islands' hazard

MESA, AZ (AP) –

Islands made out of thick, tall reeds are surfacing on Saguaro Lake northeast of Phoenix creating hazardous conditions for boaters. The U.S. Forest Service says the islands vary in size and are visible in the daylight but are harder to see when the sun goes down.

The islands appeared recently and were seen floating around the boat ramp and the marina.

Mesa Ranger District spokesman Jason Scow says crews are trying to drag the islands to the shoreline, but it's not easy because the lake level rises and falls and the islands get pulled back in the water.

Scow says that none of the other Salt River lakes above Saguaro Lake have any floating islands.

30-01-2012 19:14 On October 16, 1991, George Hennard drove his 1987 Ford Ranger pickup truck through the front window of a Luby’s Cafeteria at 1705 East Central Texas Expressway in Killeen, yelled “This is what Bell County has done to me!”, then opened fire on the restaurant’s patrons and staff with a Glock 17 pistol and later a Ruger P89. About 80 people were in the restaurant at the time. He stalked, shot, and killed 23 people and wounded another 20 before committing suicide. During the shooting, he approached Dr. Suzanna Gratia Hupp, a chiropractor, and her parents. Dr. Hupp had actually brought a handgun to the Luby’s Cafeteria that day, but had left it in her vehicle due to the laws in force at the time, forbidding citizens from carrying firearms. Both of Dr. Hupp’s parents were murdered that day.
