HIV is treatable, but only if you know you’re positive
DEAR ABBY: Today, Dec. 1, is World AIDS Day. With effective treatment, people with HIV can live as long as those without HIV. Fear, shame and ignorance remain barriers to testing and treatment, which can be more deadly than HIV itself.

A man with a small sword threatened two Wimberley Firefighters on the morning of Nov. 10 at the Wimberley Fire Station.
On Thursday, Dec. 10, the San Marcos community is invited to enjoy Cookies and Cocoa at the Courthouse, a special evening of free holiday treats and a movie on the historic Hays County Courthouse lawn.
The city of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department will kick off their festivities at 5:30 p.m. with a holiday vocal performance from A Capella Unlimited.
The movie of the evening, Dr. Seuss’, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” will start rolling shortly after, giving attendees time to get settled on the lawn; it is suggested to bring blankets to sit on.

I think one of my favorite birds at the beach is the brown pelican.
I love to see these majestic birds skim just inches above the waves, often in precise formation with several birds all in a line.
They fly with heads pulled back on their shoulders and long bills resting on their breasts, flapping wings at only about one beat per second.
It seems impossible that anything so large and ponderous can fly with so little effort and with such precision.
These giant birds almost disappeared from the Texas coast back in the 1950s, victims of pesticides such as DDT.

Q. I want to get my wife a kayak. She’s kayaked in Lady Bird Lake several times so I know she’ll like it. Do you have a book that would help me get an idea of which kind of kayak is best for novices?
