in Details on How Five Individuals Conspired To Commit the Murder of Eric Torrez
These individuals deserve the death penalty and nothing but the death penalty in my opinion, but I'm sure DA Palmer will see it different as in all the other murder cases around here and let them off with some kind of plea bargain because it's easier and cheaper.
in County Commissioners: Blame County Property Tax Increase on Texas Legislature
Local Tax Assessors offices have Carte Blanc to set valuations based on sales in neighborhoods. Local taxing entities like school boards, county management boards, etc keep getting more money from rates assessed and that money is too often used for pay raises rather than road and bridge maintenance. Pay raises and administrative perks need to be shut down! These actions are in no way "conservative!"
these people deserve a public hanging
I know what your talking about. they are going to vote for an increase on their salaries!!!!! OMG! TOO MUCH! WAKE UP SAN ANGELO! We the people need to do something and not sit on our butts and gripe. This has gotten so out of hand. What ? 300,000 for travel and education? no way!!!! We need to stop some if not all the ""travel and education"" we have been lax in not paying attention .
LOL..... As I have said before, get rid of al of them and put someone in there that will do the job correctly . Give them 90 days, if the public does not like what and how they are doing, give them the pink slip.
Demand a budget and publish what, who and where they spend the money, no working lunches, how many of us take a sandwitch? Get down to the basics. They use the taxpayers money too freely.
Taxes with this tax increase this year have gotten out of hand. Last year unfortunately we were able to file a disability exemption of our taxes which decreased them around 450.00 per year. Now with the increase they are back up. Needless to say I don't see our income doing up. The people next door also filed a protest against the higher rate and lost that battle also. There house was appraised for more by the appraiser with the real estate agency than what they could even sell it for but they ended up selling it for the tax appraisal value of $175,000. Now that is after he paid 177,000 it and put in all new appliances, all new hardwood floor, new landscaping, new paint, a water softner and RO system and a alarm system. They lived there less than a year before they had to move. So no one can tell me the tax appraisal value are fair. He sold it for 175,000 and took a HUGE loss. I feel sure if I were to sell mine it would not appraise for what it did in 2015 nor would it appraise for the tax value. Land does not just jump up $10,000 in value when there are not lots in the area for sale to compare to. I wish I could get a 2% raise and wish I had medical insurance too. So for the County employes,count your blessings.
regarding the automatic tax rollback election proposal hilarious. Either they are stupid or they think we all are.
First, they argue that it somehow violates the voters will to give the voters a say in whether tax rates should go up. Excuse me? Letting the voters vote on it and express their will, violates their will? How many of them ran on a platform promising to jack tax rates to the sky and won? That's what I thought.
Second, in many areas tax appraisals are increasing at the 10% maximum allowed every year. Anybody here seeing their wages increase 10% per year? On top of that elected officials feel they need the ability to raise tax rates an unlimited amount as well? That's ridiculous. With a 10% increase in appraisals and a 4% increase in the tax rate, they are bringing in 14.4% more revenue without having to get approval as it is. If your economy is growing at 2% and your government at 14.4%, you have a problem.
I'm pretty sure none of us voted for that.

I can't figure out why these criminals smile in their mugshots! They must know something that I don't!
in County Pushes for 3-Cent Property Tax Increase to Avoid Bankruptcy
Here we go again, the meeting is when? 9:30 a. m.? That's just great! They have it then so that a lot of people can not attend. Rate increase, no, they need to cut their salaries , I think 85,000 is a bit too much for a country judge ? I may have to reread the article but just who in the SAM HILL do they think they are??? Everyone is going broke trying to pay taxes. I am so sick of this town acting like we are something we are not. We are really a retirement town, and should stay that way. But this town has really grown in 20 years and not all of it is good. Does anyone remember that Bell Street was nothing but BEER JOINTS? I DO! I Learned how to dance under the stars at age 5 , good ole days...lol... San Angelo, used to be a good little town, it seems like with all the new people coming in, new places to work, ect. we have forgotten how to help each other, be kind, I could go on and on.... All we think about now is how to put the screw to someone, how to steal, kill, hurt, and the city and county how to tax you, make rules , put your butt in jail for trash and weeds? pets not fixed???? OMG! what will be the new rules? WHAT WILL THEY TAX NEXT? Where did the common sense go? Yes, we need to start all over and get rid of everyone in office and get some dumb redneck ranchers and farmers in there . Then I think or know they could balance the budget, and keep the nut cases at bay. I really liked Mayor Lowe and we could use him now.
in SAPD Nabs Love Shack Aggravated Robbery Suspect
So these guys don't look alike at all, but sure the police always know what they are doing so it's gotta be him.............. Right?
I hope this kid isn't innocent, I could be wrong but the male in the surveillance photo looks nothing like the kid in the mugshot?
The guy in the surveillance looks nothing like the guy in the mugshot...hopefully they didn't get the wrong guy.
I'm sure the police got the right guy, because I'm sure they could link him to the car, etc. However....doesn't the guy in the mugshot look like a different guy than the guy on the security cam footage?
in District Judge Goodwin Paves the Way for Three Jury Trials to Begin Monday
This bar slug needs to admit to her drunkenly accidental murder of Gunner. Anyone who laughs and scoffs at the severity of their actions needs to be made extra example of. Sure hope the jury gets this one right. Brandy needs to feel the burn here on earth.
