Table Talk

SUNDAY February 18, 2024

“Everybody has something to bring to the table.”

Bob Weir

Having spent many years in corporate America I often heard the term “What do you bring to the table” and continue to hear it now as I work with leadership in communities all over the Upper East Side of Texas. I give a lot of thought to how I can best contribute to projects, goals, and communications that help processes flow well. For the most part, I get to choose the tables where I sit more often now and enjoy the contributions of others as we work towards our common goals.

I am fortunate to work with some talented people who continue to keep the wheels turning in a good direction for our region. I am grateful for those who stand on the frontlines to fight for fair and humane conditions for all people and our beloved animals. We are all so lucky for the many artists here who bring beauty into our world through their sculptures, paintings, images, performances, and words.

Many good people are bringing important skills to the table in the Upper East Side of Texas. Meet a few here in this issue and explore more in the County Line eMagazine. — P.A. Geddie

THIS TIME OF YEAR

Remembering Karen Silkwood

This Monday, February 19, is the birthdate of Longview native Karen Silkwood who gained national attention after voicing concerns about health and safety issues at the Kerr-McGee nuclear facility in Crescent, Oklahoma, and suspiciously died soon after. This year marks the 50th anniversary of her death.

Portrayed by Meryl Streep in a 1983 award-winning movie, Silkwood’s story continues to be of interest. Read our interview with Silkwood’s children in the County Line ARCHIVES. The family maintains active social media to help keep her memory alive. Although the movie is currently available only on DVD, the family was notified that it will stream on HULU from October through December this year in connection with the 50th anniversary of her death. Silkwood is buried in Kilgore.
