Jerry Flemmons

Flemmons is a Fort Worth legend, having written for the Star-Telegram for some three decades and wrote several books. When the native Texan died in 1999, a colleague eulogized him by saying: "Some readers preferred his columns Some liked 'Texas Siftings, ' for years a monthly celebration of all things Texan But most of us just liked anything with his name on top. Grocery list or bail bond application if Jerry's hand touched it, you read it."
