Texas Rangers

A former award-winning journalist for the Austin American-Statesman and other Texas newspapers, Cox spent more than 15 years as spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, handling media interviews at the scene of some of the biggest news events in recent Texas history.

He retired as communications manager for the Texas Department of Transportation in 2007, but retired from retirement in 2010 to join the communications division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. He still devotes much of his free time to writing, editing/consulting and public speaking.

Mike will be speaking on “Trailing Texas History,” in conjunction with his latest book Trailing the Texas Rangers. He recently retired from Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine and plans to write the Texas history he loves fulltime.

PROGRAM begins at 7:00 pm on the second floor of the
Georgetown Public Library.

    1. In the current newsletter, near the beginning, is a link to sgwl.org that goes to some foreign website.
    2. Could you add my website in the members list?

    I fixed the errors in the newsletter, passed the information on to The Gabriel Writer editor and added your website to the members websites list. Thanks for letting me know about these issues.

    Oops. You fixed the displayed link, but didn’t change the link to part. You can test it by linking on each one. I did a refresh of my browser and still got the wrong links. These math problems are harder than they should be. This one is okay seven x — = 7, but the last one was — x 8 = 24. I had to count on my fingers.

    I would like to have a contact at the SGWL to receive publicity about the Hill Country Authors Series speakers. Our next speaker is Chris Tomlinson, author of Tomlinson Hill. He will be speaking at the Library on Feb. 20 at 2:00 p.m. I’d like to send you a press release, poster, etc., to have for your Feb. meeting.
