West Texas News from San Angelo
in Speedway Murder Suspect Changes Plea and is Sentenced to 38 Years
My first ex wife taught me good about how arguments work. She had serious mental problems and would jump right in the middle of you like a wild animal and start barking and slapping and kicking. I didn't realize because I was younger than her that I needed to back off and escape.
She was purposely escalating the intensity of the situation and I am very thankful I was able to keep my cool. Nobody told me it could be like that. Luckily for me, dad was still alive at that time. When I tried to call him for advice , she would yank the phone out of my hand. She tried to isolate me from everyone I knew.
It took me 7 years by myself to finally let it all go. It was powerful damage. but thankfully for me, I prayed every day and survived it.
I looked her up on facebook years later just out of curiosity. It sort of reminded me of that movie with Dustin Hoffman.
In this case, it is sad or any domestic case where people don't know how to stop arguing or escalating the situation. I went through the school of hard knocks and took my bumps, but a lot of young men may not know what can happen.
but then again, I had dad and also dad's friend in the bible. When things got bad , dad sent me $1500 bucks and told me , get out of there and come home. we can talk about it while sipping coffee.
as the old Indian chiefs used to say, I had become invisible.
we were unique and rare family though. We was raised that nobody was allowed to raise their voice and start yelling at someone. cos that meant fight. We never ever yelled at each other or screamed at each other in our house. I guess, I didn't realize how wise my dad was.
that doesn't mean the majority of other people don't do it. we were unique in those regards and uncommon leadership there.
in Saltgrass Waiter Stiffed on Tip, Got a Racist Note Instead
Not for that reason, that is pretty silly, but... I don't tip at any restaurant I go to either, and the reason why is: If a restaurant hires people to work for them and do a good j0b in order to promote customers to return to that location, then the restaurant needs to pay and reward that employee for doing a good job. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that restaurants can't pay an employee $12.00 per hour and more if they excel in their job. This case in particular, the bill came to $108.73. It took that group probably 1 hour to come in, order, eat and leave. Paying that employee $12.00 per hour would mean that 1 ticket still made the restaurant $96.73, more than enough to pay for the items used in that meal and to pay a cook to prepare it. And that is on that one ticket only. That employee probably had 5 or 6 other tables that he was attending, all on that $12.00 per hour, which would make all those tables he's waiting on make even more money for the restaurant. It's not my job to pay for a meal and then pay that person's wages to wait on me for the hour he spends with me.
in Commissioner Ford Wants a Ten Percent Pay Raise
Most of us are lucky if we even make 10,000 to 15,000 a year. I know I don't.
Screw that ahole he should get $0 He wants a raise jam a jack up his ass. He wants a raise how about take down fence that’s still up in park. How about that money from the sale of land that was not the counties to sell to begin with ? And morons in christoval just let it happen
Of course he does, how else is he supposed to afford that house in The Oaks?…
in Driver Who Crashed Through Walmart Released on Bond
so he wasn't charged with attempted murder?
in Housing Thousands of Illegal Immigrant Children at Goodfellow AFB Could Strain Water Supply
in SAPD Street Crimes Division Seizes Another 9 Lbs of Meth in San Angelo
Ever since this new POPO chief has been elected they have really come down hard on the drug/slugs.
9 pounds of family destroying meth!! No better reason for the death penalty for this drug/slug(:
I have met some of them. I met a guy in California once that approached me and said he was from Pakistan. His American girlfriend brought him here and decided to dump him. Out of desperation, he walked straight towards me. I forgot what I told him, but I don't have any connections or anything to help a guy like that. I could have had him deported I guess immediately, but judging by his character he was a victim of circumstance.
I have met Mexicans in the same situation. If it was in my power, I could somehow help you. but you don't understand, I am barely making it myself.
i talked to people from all walks of life, even people within my own family. I always told them the same thing. You don't understand, the only thing I can do is try to maybe implant some sort of wisdom or advice, and certainly I will wish you good will. I simply don't have the finances or resource to do much more than anyone else.
I will say though that I met some Swedish girls that overstayed their Visas. I had considered trying to help them because they were hot.
Mostly, I didn't because I knew it was too hot to handle anyway. It could have created an international disaster anyway.
but ya, they like to come straight towards me and the sad thing is, the greatest thing I ever did was try to help my own familia and even some of that didn't even turn out good.
America's love affair for illegal narcotics is making life miserable in this country and in their Homeland.
In 2017, visa overstays outnumbered illegal border crossings. Russia's Pootin uses this "pourous border scare tactic" as divide and conquer. Treacherous Russian President trump is allowing him to advance his plan.
in Purse Snatcher Caught on Film. Do You Know Him? SAPD's Finest Will Catch Him.
..or a nice "necklace".
It's a popular thief's comeuppance, doled out by lynch mobs in some African and South American countries. The recidivism rate by the offenders is 0%.
Sometimes it does take a village.
in Rapidly Declining Lake Levels Trigger Drought Level One
We need money to give raises to our civil servants. We need money to improve our infrastructure and schools. We went through great efforts to shore up our water supply through the aquifers and purchasing more land. We are one of the rare cities to restore our downtown.
So, we do great things, and then we struggle with other things.
When big things come through town, it needs to go towards our city to help them with the budget so we can continue to do great things and be great people.
maybe I don't understand how it all works, but I hate to think our leaders get taken advantage of because of their kind natures.
of course , we are people of faith but also practical . We know where the water comes from and it seems we have just enough to get by.
I first heard the term when I was listening to a preacher who is long gone now. I had written him a letter, and I think his name was J Kennedy from somewhere in Florida. He sent me a brochure that was entitled the old lamp lighter.
i knew they were speaking of someone. Then, i figured out it was Christ.
in Robert Lee Woman Admits Shooting Her Husband Multiple Times in Brutal Murder
Dear I was thinking about purchasing a revolver but I have been concerned lately about your mood swings and explosive temper.
also concerns me when they maybe changed your medications that you seemed to change and not in a good way.
Sometimes guns are not good in certain environments. Remorse later sure is not much good.
If people aren't stable or of sound mind, keep guns far away.
All other decisions aside and just concentrating on one thing, water, does make us unique. It seldom is a luxury we have much leeway with.
oh btw, I caught a beautiful little bass right there off the bank shown in the photo. I had my lucky fishing lure with me that brought me great success. I will not share what it was but some of you may have an idea.
So, drought level one, prices go up and rules increase. Everyone accepts that formula but does it allow us that much room for generosity to bring in 1000s more. Have they thought about the overall effect because there are plenty of places in the country that are not as water challenged as we are.
Similar things happened to the city when the oil boom moves in. The burden immediately goes directly to the San Angelo taxpayer. Immediately, and I wonder that when we get caught in these unique situations why the taxpayers gain no benefit from either being philanthropist or in the middle of an economic boom. Basically, we do not have a lot of high income people in town. Most of them are retired or living on moderate to lower wages.
Of course, we are good people and that is the greatest thing about living in San Angelo. It seems like the natural forces ensure we get taken advantage of. Yes, we have enough capacity to be kind within us to infinity and beyond.
Someone should look out for us though. I don't mean anything bad about anyone, leaders, or situations that just happen in the world. It just seems like the citizens get left out of consideration when these national events come to visit our small little town.
My suggestion is the leaders of the town fill up our piggy bank when we get into these national events. They could solve some of their revenue shortfalls and not even affect the local taxpayers.
i guess that sounds like a good horse trader.
in Lawsuit Pits Independent Cardiologist Against a Large San Angelo Hospital
Can't wait to see that headline! Way to go. Take then down a notch and wish you could take SMC down too. The rates they charge quadruple to get the contracted rate they need or want. My cardiologist retire from Shannon Clinic but said he'd miss his patients. He got tired of the insurance companies telling him what he could and could not do. He only wanted to treat the whole patient not just what they allowed. When he retired I was going to figure out what cardiologist I wanted to see at Shannon Clinic and was told I needed to get a PCP or a Internist and that I did not need a cardiologist. Now how does a receptionist know that. I respect the receptionist as they catch a lot of crap from patients but I had been seeing the cardiologist for about 18 years so I'd think I still need one. As it turns out I have a internist. I have not had a echocardiogram, cardiac stress test, or chest xray since the day my cardiologist retired. I know I need them but cannot afford Shannons' self pay rates and then I would have to tell the Internist I wanted then done and why. People may think I am making this up but I'm not. The internist even tried to change my BP medicine and I agreed at first. Then after taking it a few days I remembered why I was taking what I had been on for years. So I called and told them I would not take the new RX and got the old one back. Some doctors just don't listen. It's about time someone in private practice did something to stand up for themselves. I hope more doctors in private practice will do the same.
