Special to the PRESSEditor,We support the proposed Rio Grande LNG project because people in the Rio Grande Valley need the good-paying jobs that this proposed project will bring. An economic study by the Perryman Group shows that the project would bring thousands of jobs during construction and add a few hundred permanent jobs when the facility is operating.A project like this will make a huge, positive difference in one of the poorest areas of Texas. These good-paying jobs will provide a better quality of life for families and create more business for many small businesses, such as for our restaurant, Mariscos De La Rosa.We believe that the Rio Grande LNG project is safe for the community or we would not be supporting it.We urge everyone to get behind this project as we have so that more Brownsville residents and businesses can benefit from the economic opportunities that Rio Grande LNG will provide for many years. Too much is at stake when it comes to our families, employees, customers, the community and our economy.Rodolfo De La RosaAnahi De La RosaMariscos De La Rosa RestaurantBrownsvilleWant the whole story?

“Beavis and Butt-Head Do America”/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Beavis and Butt-Head is coming back.“It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again.” That’s the word from Mike Judge, the guy who shot to fame with the MTV animated phenomenon about two dopey, titular high school buds, before going on to create King of the Hill, the beloved live action cult classics Office Space and Idiocracy, and the acclaimed HBO hit Silicon Valley.Judge inked a deal with Comedy Central to write, produce and, of course, voice the new B&B, this time for Comedy Central. Beavis and Butt-Head launched on MTV in 1993 with a series of janky-looking animated shorts — the likes of which would never pass in today’s society, like Frog Baseball — before the series took on a life of its own, interspersed with the boys making fun of music videos. Because those were still a thing in 1993.Beavis and Butt-Head spawned a hit movie, with the 1996 road trip flick Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, which spawned a hit soundtrack, to boot. The culture clash of then and now appears central to the “reimagined” show, according to Comedy Central, which teases, “In this new iteration, Beavis and Butt-Head are entering a whole new Gen Z world.” Adds Chris McCarthy, president of Entertainment & Youth Group at Comedy Central, “Beavis and Butt-Head were a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own.”By Stephen IervolinoCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
