Grand Canyon remains nature’s crowning glory

By CRAIG GARNETT

Standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon for the first time, it is impossible not to feel overwhelmed by what is surely nature’s most awe-inspiring creation. For more than 270 miles, the earth has been lifted by the collision of tectonic plates and then carved away to depths exceeding a mile by the inexorable forces of the Colorado River.

Holy Week services begin today at local churches

Today is Palm Sunday, which marks the beginning of Holy Week to most Christian religions. The week culminates in Easter Sunday one week from today.

On Palm Sunday, Christians celebrate the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branches, hence the name Palm Sunday. Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples. This event is also referred to as the Last Supper, the Lord’s Supper or communion.

Lack of cooperation leads to separate train depots

THE FOLLOWING is the second installment of a series about the former Missouri Pacific Railroad and A.B. Junction. The first installment appeared on Page 14 of the Sunday, March 26 edition of the Uvalde Leader-News.

By CHARLEY ROBINSON

Here today, gone tomorrow. That’s the story of life, and railroads are no different. They are built, serve their purpose, and then they are abandoned.

There used to be rail service from Uvalde to the south. The Missouri Pacific Railroad had a line that either originated or dead-headed in Uvalde, depending from whence you embarked.
