I hunted alligators once and had to chum up the water with fermented cow heart parts.
Yep, it’s true. It was gross and exciting at the same time. I'll tell you the story sometime.
Clara G. Herrera is a former newspaper journalist who loves a good story. In one of her many accents, she’ll tell you one. She grew up in Merkel and Tye, Texas and found her way along the road to the big city.
She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, which boasts more people than her entire hometown - including the Merkel cemetery. She cannot pronounce the word "rural" or "pretty" without making an extra effort. "Rule and purty" sound purty good anyway.
This alligator-hunting, skydiving substitute teacher is the author of many yet-to-be published children’s books including “Sub Warfare” in which 10-year-old Rory McConnell tries to break every substitute teacher who walks through his class.
Clara has also penned “The Fourth of July Sisters,” a tale of three sisters with wild red, white and blue hair who are asked by town children to be part of a parade contest to win a roller coaster and free cotton candy.
But fat man "Jelly Judge," who awards the best parade prize, also owns a string of dental offices. The parades go bad. Jelly Judge is a fink but comes around in the end.
