I guess this says it all about the usefulness of the Texas  
Legislature...FYI: The Athens Review won't print any hamburger fact in any  letter to the 
editor. I won't try again.

Nichols speaks to Athens Chamberby Christina Campbell
Attendees at the monthly Athens Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday,  
heard 3rd District State Senator Robert Nichols speak about the past session in  
the senate. 

Nichols said he believes the future is good for Athens  because this is a 
place people want to come to. 

“And it is good to be the official home of the hamburger,”  the senator 
said. “I was proud to be the Senate sponsor of the bill District 4  State 
Representative Betty Brown authored in the House.” 

Nichols went on to tell the group about the “conservative  swing” of bills 
passed in the Senate. 

He said these bills included funding property tax cuts,  toning down 
franchise taxes and extending property tax cuts to the  elderly. 

The Senate and the House also placed “In God We Trust” above  their 
doorways, he said. 

“We also added it to the Texas Constitution,” the senator  said.
