in Elder Care Couple On the Run From the Law
My question is: Why are the courts not forfeiting these bail bond amounts when these people skip out ? I've always thought that is what making a bond is all about, money put up for a person to get out of jail....... As for the bail bondsman, the money he takes from the person in he's bailing out, goes in his pocket and the money that is in the bail bondsman's bank account, be it $10,000 or $200,000 is what guarantee's that person's appearance in court at a scheduled time. In this instance, the person did not appear in court so the court should in my opinion, seize the bond amount from the bondsman and deposit it into County's general fund and with a few of these big deposits, maybe my taxes might go down a little since there's boo-koo's of extra money being added to the County's account by holding these bondsmen's a$$ to the fire like should be..........
in Still No Pay Raise In Sight For Those Who Protect And Serve
On an audit.
Raises, roads, trash, and don't forget a unbelievably out of conrol water bill. Our departing mayor scurries away from reporters like a cockroach exposed to the light; city council is silent an ignoring a the issue. When will someone step up outside of the good 'ol boys club and run for mayor and council?
Sounds like it's about time to get the Dolcefino consulting crew back down here to investigate this where they can make city staff members stare blankly and silently into space while the sound of crickets can be heard chirping in the background.....
This is ridiculous. Our city leaders are a disgrace. It's funny how they can just bold face lie and walk away from the police contract, yet they will allow the Republic trash people to greedily rob every citizen in this city and stay bound to that contract.
I as a tax payer would hope now that the police union will bring a full blown auditing team down on this city so we can finally get to the bottom of where all the money goes. We already know there is no Republic audit available on the over charges that have been in the news, what else has been hidden or mishandled ? We are one of the highest taxed cities in the State, yet have the worst employee pay, road, water, sewer infrastructure around. Lots and lots of money goes somewhere..... ? ? ?
in Judge Accepts Guilty Plea in Cold Case Murder of Brian Kyle Plunkett
John Best, DA for the 119th Judicial District, explained why.
“It’s not a question of us going after [Simmons]; It’s a question of evidence,” Best said. “What I want to make sure that everyone knows and understands is if new evidence arises that tends to connect George Simmons to the murder, we will certainly receive that evidence from the Sheriff’s Office, or anyone else who has information of his role in the murder.”
He said that, under Texas law, there has to be evidence that tends to connect Simmons to the murder other than an accomplice’s statement. He said this lack of evidence meant they are unable peruse the charge of murder against Simmons at this date.
Last week, SA Live reported a criminal conviction in a case with no evidence and many conflicting statements yet the jury returned a guilty verdict. Now Mr. Best says no evidence equals no trial. This seems to be worlds apart within the same county/district. HOW?

in Ener-Tel is Moving to the Mejor Que Nada
I deal with Ener-Tel pretty regularly. Really good people.
in San Angelo Mayoral Candidates Square Off for the First Time
I agree with Mr. Taylor about moving the city council meetings. Any one who works a typically 8-5 job cannot make it to a morning meeting with out losing work time. Same can be said for any one who has to work evenings as well. Maybe alternating times for meetings so more people could attend would be better. I agree transparency is needed, especially on issues that involve the entire city such as the trash contract which is a monopoly, hence why they can charge what ever they desire and provide the minimum service necessary to do their contract.
Mr. Taylor good luck on your campaign. Take your time and review what you say and how you say it and people will listen.
Thats some kind of real evil for these 2 to decide to end someones life. Im curious what their so called excuse for tsking this soul. Couldnt have been life insurance etc.
I have heard lots of good things about these folks. Good luck on new location.

in Study: San Angelo Commercial Trash Rates are 183% Higher than Abilene's
It just keeps getting better and better with Republic. Who negotiated that deal ? We need better negotiators. San Angelo..we need to vote out every single person on the city council and fire the city manager. After the next election, there should be all new faces in these positions. Lets not forget Republic.....50% cut across the board on all services. If they don't like it, stop payment on anything pending, and tell them goodbye. We need a city council and city manager that cares about the city. Folks there is something crooked going on ........
