H. Wm. Rhea III 2 weeks ago on Congressman wants tough measures

The last I read, they had Arizona listed as "Leaning Friendly", while they had Texas and Utah listed as hostile. New Mexico was "Leaning Hostile". It's got to be very bad if they're actually categorizing states like that.

I do not fear the Jade Helm thing because there are natural disasters coming that are of Biblical proportions that worry me far more - if I was worried, which I am not.

If we get rain this Friday, that'll be another reprieve. Pray to God for rain!

I would like to see Green Valley Parkway extended from the Event Center through to Green Valley Park. And also to see Longhorn through to Vista. Other than that, the roads could really use some work - more than the drizzling of tar over cracks, if possible.

I'm not a realtor, but I agree with Pat. The sale of that land ought to be completely iron clad and go through the full title process.


H. Wm. Rhea III 3 weeks, 1 day ago on New principals hired

I have to agree with Pat on this about the bus drivers. Some of them drive so fast and recklessly that I cringe , as a former school bus driver, when I see them coming - especially on Mclane.

They can't do those things because these people will find a way to get it no matter what. And since it's considered cruel and inhumane to just let them die, what other choice is there?


H. Wm. Rhea III 3 weeks, 3 days ago on Tutors for homeless kids

I have heard that some lived in the forest in trailers. And others lived behind Walmart - but I haven't seen any there. There have been several articles in the newspaper about this problem that I have to wonder just how many are we talking about? They make it seem like it's a lot.

I have a hard time believing that we 30 to 50 homeless kids in this community. How many families does that break down to? It's so bad that we need to pay six people at total of $540. each to tutor these children? And really, only for 27 hours total for the whole year? I'm sorry, but if a child needs tutoring, then he/she will likely need a lot more than 27 hours, which will actually be split among the various students. So how much tutoring will each child actually get?

"Wyman said the district would have to put it out to see what sort of applicants would respond." - Isn't that a lot like Nancy Pelosi's, "We'll have to pass it to find out what's in it" statement?


H. Wm. Rhea III 3 weeks, 4 days ago on New principals hired

This article should have included a reference to a previous article or at least the name of the first of the three new principles, who was previously hired- otherwise it comes off as only two people being hired to replace three outgoing principals.

Improve the relationship between the district and the teachers and maybe the bleeding will stop.
