in Local Novelist Discovers San Angelo History
Now THAT is the pensive look of a writer. The guitar is just a prop! At any rate, anyone who has heard him play will say that!
Sorry about that Joe!
I stole this photo off your facebook, hope you don't mind.
in City Council Talks Trash
Im sure TDS will be happy to pick it up in your alley!
in Boys and Girls Club a Home Away From Home
Nice article, Lauren! I’m a Board member on the San Angelo Boys & Girls Club, and I do it because I strongly believe they serve an important purpose for our community…..making sure that the local kids who need us most have a safe, productive, and fun place to go after school. By providing these impressionable youth with mentoring, positive reinforcement and homework help, we can steer them away from drugs and gangs, and instead encourage them to have a future as healthy and productive citizens. Our partnership with the community is so important…..please “like” our facebook page to keep up with what we’re doing!https://www.facebook.com/BGCSanAngelo
I'm not rolling anything to the end of my driveway. It's hard enough to get everything out into the alley. It also looks terrible. I'll put it in the alley and pay for it to be picked up. That's why we have the alley afterall.
in Veterans Remember the Past and Thank the Present Military
It was refreshingly pleasant to be interviewed by you. I look forward to speaking with you again when we discuss the Crisis Intervebtion Unit. Thank you.
in Healthy Options in San Angelo?
I think it's time we found out more about this place. There's no on-line info. Hmm?
$11/hr !?! I'm sure that republic told you that they are offering $11 per hour to the men on the back of the truck but ask any of them and they will be lucky to be getting $10 per hour. The drivers of these truck only make $13 per hour. Why would any of these guy stick around when they can go to the oil field and make $5-$10 more per hour? Republic seriously underpays all of their employees and are loosing employees left and right because of their refusal to pay them any more than what they make. Republic claims they can not afford to pay their employees any more but somehow they are going to be able to purchase new trucks to do this pilot program? What will they do if they lose the bid to pick up trash to TDS? Republic will have burned a lot of bridges and lost a lot of money for nothing.
in San Angelo Residents Deem Recycling Too Inconvenient
I agree with the other posters on here. if it wasn't so inconvenient I would recycle. I can't afford to pay 20 or more to have someone pick it up and can't always make it to SAFE. I would be willing to pay $5 more a month on my water bill to have it picked up the same day as the trash. another city I lived in did that and it worked.
Great story. YOu made Joe Weaver sound better than he is. You even made him look...well, DIFFERENT, if not better. That is NOT Joe! It is the subject of one of his blogs, MIke Towry, who was killed this summer in San Antonio.
in Free Car Wash!
In this new era of hope, change and entitlement, one must appreciate the new mantra:
"Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others."
Is this serious? for real? a CAR WASH! We're in nearly the strictest water restriction period - watering only once every two weeks - - and they're gonna have a CAR WASH!!!! what genius came up with this one? There are plenty of groups around town who wanted to hold car washes all summer long - - but because they are AWARE OF THE WATER CRISIS they had bake sales or something that didn't waste water.... While I can appreciate the cause - the is horrible. Hope folks don't show up for this one.
in How a Blogger's Accusations Almost got Councilman Marty Self Fired
Are you kidding me ? This is what they spent half an hour discussing ? There are only a handful of people who either want to serve on this Council or have the time to serve on it. And we're nitpicking this deep to see if they're eligible because someone may have had a contract in the past ? I know Mr. Wardlaw is trying to do his job, but if we start digging that deep, he may find that he has represented someone in the past who used to be a subcontractor for a company that had a contract with the City 10 years ago. Is he now ineligible ? There are more pressing issues that need the attention of the Council. If Mr. Self is profitting directly from his position, then I have no problem with someone questioning it. But if not, move on and get down to business. If you chase every rabbit that crosses the trail, you'll never get to where you were going in the first place.
According to the folks at Republic, finding people willing to work for $11/hr on the back of the garbage trucks is extremely difficult. Some, he says, he gets from temp labor places. They work the first day and don't show up the next. My opinion? Democrats will argue that this is why we need comprehensive immigration reform, if you know what they mean. Republicans will argue that we're paying people too much money to sit at home and watch Oprah, and they don't want to work hard.
I got a kick out of the idea that the commentary of 3 people out of a town of some 90,000+ dictated a headline that says "San Angelo residents deem recycling inconvenient" .........quite a scientific polling process there.... I use the S.A.F.E. site regularly - wish I could recycle more, but my space is limited for keeping those things around since I have to taken them to the recycle center myself - and their hours are only good for week-ends really (if you happen to work during the week).... I think that there is much more support for recycling in town than is presented in this 3 person Q&A....
