West Texas News from San Angelo
in Red Ford F-150 Flips 4 to 5 Times in Single Vehicle Crash
Another wreck in which BOTH LANES were obviously blocked (See your own posted photo) and AGAIN, there was NO NIXLE broadcast to warn motorists or even other First Responders of the road blockage.
IMHO - NIXLE is a FAILURE !
in Pit Bull Attack Leaves 9-Year-Old In Critical Condition
Each year only 23 kids are maimed / killed by pitbulls. Are we not too quick to jump on conclusions in branding the entire breed as dangerous? Why can't we be more generous? What's a couple of kids here and there? There are too many of them already.
in Two 'Criminal Aliens' Arrested in San Angelo During 3-Day ICE Operation
What will I call them? That's a good question. I'm talking for myself, not for everyone else but if "they" have enterd our country without legal documents, they are illegal alliens, and for those that committed a crime past or present, I think they should called (criminally active illegal allien). They already broken the law by entering illegally and by what I understand many work with a generous individual citizens Social Security number and that's a crime as well, and some of these people work under stolen documents but some get lucky and an American citizen offer them a low paying job for the reason the law is being broke as well. Where does it end? Getting rid of the most dangerous for us is a good idea? But what about the rest of the people that keep on living under the original charge entering the country illegally, we can't change that "Illegal Alien status" because they continue to live illegally and some dont try to even become a legal resident or a citizen, they would rather live off the generosity of the good ole U.S. citizens. I married a foreign Mexican national and I seen and experience issues like this only difference was that my wife came to better her life by becoming a legal resident then on to becoming an U.S. citizen. There's no excuse why illegal Aliens can't do the same..... It's not about what they are labeled as person, it's about respecting the law and doing what is required to live in this country, just like what we have to do to visit there's, and I'm not just talking about Mexican nationals, Honduren, and many other foreign nationals. Do the right thing people!!!!
in Former Abilene Educator Post Bail After Biting Autistic Student
Keep in mind that I'm in no way advocating what possibly occurred here, but I've noticed a trend with San Angelo Live! deciding an individual's guilt without the benefit of a trial in a court of law. Shouldn't 'biting' be replaced with 'allegedly biting'? I love this website, but in the interest of journalistic integrity shouldn't you be taking a less sensationalist approach in tandem with your website's popularity?
I know people love to say how sweet pit bulls are, but statistics don't lie. They are considered the deadliest breed for a documented reason, not just to pick on them. I think what makes it worse are the people who have pit bulls just because it's the cool thing to do.
in Was Villarreal For the Trash Contract Before He was Against It? You decide
Why are we questioning this politician? This is what they all do when the popularity of the "thing" they were in support of declines; they flop. He will be a great mayor of San Angelo. Once an issue is no longer popular, whether it's the right thing to do or not, we can count on him to change his mind. Isn't that what we all want? Someone to change positions once the pressure is put on them by the media, public opinion, special interests groups, or the mob rule.
in Gunter Calls It: Politicians Will Never Reduce Water Rates, They Love that Money
so now we are using taxpayer funds to purchase a ranch we should already have the water rights to? what is the city planning on doing with the land once it's purchase? Someone needs to Keep an eye out to see who from the city is using the land...after all, we don't need to be spending 45 million dollars so a few city elites have a private hunting ranch, or resort. once the city purchases it, it should be open for public use, to include public hunting. Now that the city brass holes have turned over Twin Buttes to the state to manage, taking away the access from those who cannot afford the state use permit, will they also deny access of the Ford Ranch, if purchased? Smart money says it will also be relegated to those above a certain wealth threshold, if it's even open to the public at all.
The breed of the animal is irrelevant; the ignorant people that don't understand animals or the pathetic humans that don't raise them properly, are to blame. They're just like children, your kids graffiti buildings and "tag" everything in sight.....you're a joke of a parent! Your dog attacks another dog or worse a child.....you're a pathetic pet owner.
The first sentence in the article states TWO Pit Bulls attacked the child.
You put the breed Pit Bull in the title but why won't you say what the other dog was?
This cannot be tru! Pitbulls are wonderful animals, especially with babies. So, sweet!
in New Money Scam Targets Local Businesses
any one wanting to have some fun can do what I did. Call the 800 number and ask for David...I gave him a fake address and business name and said I was returning the call from earlier today. He said he called two days ago blah blah blah....anyway, I wasted about 20 minutes of his time. I figure that was twenty minutes he could not bother anyone else with his scam. I will fax some stuff to him too. this should tie up his line some. One way to make my webinar class more enjoyable.
in Woman Trapped After Monday Morning Crash
Again, the SAPD did not broadcast a NIXLE on this traffic snarling incident.
Might the one officer who knows how to do it have been off?
Do different Supervisors care or not?
What is the protocol for issuing NIXLE ALERTS????
in Driver Flips Vehicle on Loop 306
in City Council Approves New Smoking Ordinance
The city council has more important things to worry about. Instead of worrying about where people smoking lets focus on the high water bill that I can't afford to pay each month along with many others and the terrible roads that you are years behind on getting repaired. The article stated if someone wanted to kill themselves by smoking they had that right. Yes they do. Then posted it said they had that right just not on city property, wrong! The property was not made by the city. It was created by God! The city does not OWN it as they would like to think the citizens own it as it gets paid for with taxpayers money without our permission. If they had our permission they would have us vote on it. I do not smoke and I hate being around it but my husband does. He tries to be respectful. He smokes outside , only in his pickup and never inside any building. You allow open carry with a concealed handgun license and so far there have not been any incidents of someone getting shot by someone who claimed to have a license and didn't. That will be far more severe than someone smoking in a city park. The police don't have time to stop people speeding now and I'm sick of it every morning on Houston Harte going to work I want to stop them myself and remind them what the speed limit is. I know it's not 80 but not police anywhere. They do not have time to stop someone texting and driving. How do you expect them to write a ticket for smoking in the wrong place? San Angelo use to be a good and safe place to live. Now it's right up there with Midland and Odessa if not worse. So leave personal habits like smoking up to businesses not you the council and get on with the important things if you even know what they are. You are so much into politics all of the council members have forgotten how to use your common sense if you ever had any. There is at least one person running for Mayor that is the BIGGEST joke ever. Cannot wait to see the out come.
