In 2013 the Copano Express started as a vehicle to let the home folks and the world know about the unique nature of the area's history.
Early articles by Bill Winsor were exceptionally well received. Bill is a descendant of one of the original Irish families that settled on or near the Copano, mostly from 1829 to 1850, which period includes the Texas revolution where it gained independence from Mexico in 1836 and the 10 years of the Texas Republic, 1836-1845
As a teen Bill worked for noted Refugio historian Hobart Huson, through whom he was introduced not just to the years mentioned above but to the entirety of Copano history (namely Refugio) from aboriginal times through 1953.
