The Commentaries of Dr. Archie McDonald http://redriverradio.org en McDonald: On the life of books http://redriverradio.org/post/mcdonald-life-books <p>The late commentator Archie McDonald often referenced his wife, Judy, in his commentaries. Through the years, we gleaned insights into their deep and abiding love for each other. This week, the city of Nacogdoches named its public library in honor of Judy B. McDonald. The recognition highlighted her 18 years of service on the Nacogdoches City Commission and as mayor. At the ceremony, Judy said Archie knew of the city's plan to rename the library. She said with a glint in her eye that Archie's response was, Great! Now I'm married to a building.
