West Texas News from San Angelo
in Council Approves Partnership Between City and SAPAC for Auditorium Renovation
The picture does not due the elegance of the City Auditorium justice. You must see it. I prefer to retain the present seats rather than have them replaced by cheap vinyl seats.
Surely this budget includes a couple hundred thou for new furniture for some other city dept and such. (:
in Perp Tased Twice in Muddy Police Battle
Really sad a child was also involved.
This guy must have been drugged up pretty good for taser not to work.
in Major Crash on Knickerbocker at Valley View
3:47 pm - Not much happening. The train is gone. I saw a bird fly by. There's a dog barking.
All i can see is pictures....no story?
You are exactly right. I just saw a police car lights and sirens coming down sherwood way and there was a black dodge avenger just cruising right down the middle lane. Didnt try to move or slow down right in the path of the patrol car. I wanted to throw rocks at them
I agree JD. There's not a light on Knickerbocker Rd. that someone doesn't run on every cycle through. If the police would just sit there and watch, we could have enough money in the city coffers to pay for the raises (I know they're short-staffed so they can't do that, it's just wishful thinking). In the mornings, the left turn lane from the Loop onto Knickerbocker heading toward the hospital is run by at least 2 vehicles every time. I think the red light is only a suggestion for most drivers in a hurry.
So sick of people that think they own the road around here. Not just talking about this specific accident, either. I take my children to school and daycare every weekday, and I have to drive the length of Southwest. Can't say how many times I've been passed, in a school zone, when I'm going the posted speed limit. WHY do people feel the law doesn't apply to them? People in a rush to drop their kids off, who in the end, end up in front of me in the drop off lane. Just GO THE LIMIT! Stop using your freakin' cell phone when you're behind the wheel!
in 'Cemetery of Innocence' Depicts Daily Abortions
Schwartz and the Pro-Life Rams exhibited such bravery by staging their protest in a town with no access to abortion services. I can understand their problem, however, since they would have to drive HUNDREDS OF MILES to protest in a city that actually provides that service to women. That represents such an inconvenience to those poor pro-life "radicals."
It is a good article about a group who supports continued life as opposed to preventing life -- about an organization who is trying to raise awareness about their cause. If you'll do something newsworthy to support killing those babies, and invite Ms. Lopez out to see what you've done, we'll see if she'll give you equal text. If not, THEN complain. And when you complain, use your real name so all your friends and acquaintances know where you stand about things like this.
in Mertzon Residents to Vote on Beer Sales in May Election
I would like to see it happen because It may stop some of the bad accidents that happen on that road between San Angelo And Mertzon. You don't really think people will wait til they get home to open that first beer do ya? This way they don't have so far to go and may wait to open it.
in Online Rental Scams Trouble San Angelo Realtor
As an investor and landlord with over 70 rental homes in San Angelo, I've seen the scams as well...but please don't think that just because we choose to manage our own properties and use craigslist and other online sites to advertise them that it's a scam. If the "landlord" isn't willing to show you the property in person, that should be a major "red flag". Another is just exactly what was stated, any kind of financial transaction that can't be taken care of face to face. There are several large investors in San Angelo who have been in business here for a long time, and are more than happy to work with people coming to the area to find them a suitable home without having to pay the added expense either in direct fees or increased rent by going through a realtor.
This a gem in the forest. based on what the picture shows the auditorium has real character. There is one item unless I missed it in the article, the seats look outdated and old. Maybe the picture gives a false representation of how they really look. If they are actually outdated, then allocation should be set aside to replace them. San Angelo is extremely lucky to have such a wonderful building.
in Train Crash Victim Was Not Wearing a Seatbelt Say DPS
For the folks wondering how you can hit a train, come check out the trees blocking the tracks both ways. This is a very dangerous situation and the railroad needs to, at the very least, put in warning lights. Yesterday, the train had only 5 engines, no cars, and was traveling much faster than the 25 mph they claim to go.
It is a pretty good drive from Mertzon to San Angelo. Obviously, you don't live there or you don't want to see any progress in mertzon. Far better for Mertzon business to be able to sell to locals and far better to not have the locals on the road to and from there with the desire to drink and drive a little.
