If it were my kid I would want every detail I could get put out there in hopes of finding him.

in Apartment Residents Saved in Early Morning Apartment Fire in San Angelo
Well, they need to be cited for lack of smoke detection capabilities. Residents were lucky. THIS time. Also lucky there was a fire Dept literally across the street...
in Head of Tom Green County Juvenile Probation Warns About the Influence of Violent Video Games
Williams is right! It is too common to see these so called mother/fathers/baby daddy/baby momma letting their children listen to the cRap and play these types of violent video games and run wild either out of convenice or ignorance. TRUTH, just because two people can produce a child does not make them Parents. Being a parent is probably the hardest thing a person will do in their life. I know it has been for me. Society is surrounded by clueless people (children) raising children today. Not really the games fault or cRap fault, this all starts at mom and or dad stepping up and being a parent not a friend.
It makes a big difference when you sit down with your children and explain that a game is just a game and doesn't negate real life. If parents would explain that there are consequences, real life consequences. There was a girl that burned down her house because she saw Beavis and Butthead do it. She said she didn't know that it would actually burn down or that she could have actually been hurt. The parents should have explained ....... From the time I was 5 my mother always let me watch horror flicks with her and they never scared me or made me fearful of the dark because she always explained that it was just someone silly in a costume pretending to be scary so we could have fun and cuddle and eat popcorn. From an early age I knew that it was ENTERTAINMENT and not reality. People just need to talk to their kids.
in City Proposes Pay Raises For All, Police Refocus on Initial Request
Hopefully the water main outside Rodney's house will burst and stay out of service for half a day so he can see how unimportant the city workers are.
Touching up on a subject that was thought to be true 15 years ago. The man needs to get with the times, this was disproved long ago.
Lots of thought-provoking comments here. I come from an area where all usable water comes from an aquifer, so runoff is generally "wasted". Here, that's not the case. Barrington's ideas are good. How much rainwater runs off roofs that could be captured and reused? It is a huge amount (when it rains, of course), but it is phenomenally huge when business areas are considered. The City of Amarillo offers incentives for businesses and home-owners to install rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems. That should be considered here (and everywhere in drought areas.)
The chief expense in a simple RWH project is guttering. If gutters are already in place, installing a tank in dispersal system is fairly inexpensive and simple, or can be. (Obviously, it will all depend on what one wants to do with the water and where it needs to go. Obtaining potable water is a different matter entirely!) I'll bet the Ag Extension office has guidelines for such a system.
Please be careful in not launching into large scale personal and ad hominem attacks on individuals. As weird as it may seem, I want to have a higher level of discussion.
The real issue here is the tension between the city staff who have to report to the council who reports to the people vs. the police unions who represent the police. Dane is one of many questioning the police requests at the behest of YOUR city councilman more than likely.
And Michael Dane continues to tell these guys they aren't worth his nor the cities time to figure out a way to pay them what they're worth.... Maybe it's time his paycheck ends with the city and an appointment is made with someone who can appreciate an above and beyond service these guys perform for the city and citizens of this community and especially for these 7 people that would have been in this mornings obituary column if it hadn't been for their dedication and bravery .....
in Two N. Bryant Ave. Lanes Closed at 14th St. Due to Major Two-Vehicle Accident
Maybe we have to put driving etiquette into our Driving test curriculum. Look - both ways, Wait , Watch , Listen , then Look again. Oh yes, leave ten minutes early so I'm not playing PAC - MAN at the wheel. Lastly , kids in the car ? NO PHONE !! Lights on for safety, signal more than one click ( that's not 300-500 ft to signal your intention).
PS : sorry to hear someone got injured.
That's a "cop out" ...pun intended. They should stick to taking care of the criminals, and not trying to rationalize. http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletters/Harvard_Mental_Health_Letter/2...
With our limited water sources, all ideas need to be seriously looked at. Use this opportunity to let him go forward and let's see how it works. The biggest problem I see is regulation and "who owns the water"? What if the guy down the street wants to do the same, but the guys up the street capture all of the water? Within six months we could be in big trouble in San Angelo. It hasn't been discussed much, but I hope the council will be very supportive to gutter systems and water tanks in your yard. And I'm talking much larger than 500 gallons. People have to understand, IT WILL RAIN. But you must have the catchment and tanks in place when it comes. Catch the rain off your property and the ownership issue goes away. Remember, every square foot of surface area can catch 0.6 gallons of water per inch of rain. If your house is 30x60' and we average 20" rain per year, you can catch 21,600 gallons of water IF YOU HAVE BIG STORAGE TANKS. So I ask the council to have an open mind to the tank issue.
in White Toyota Tundra Fails to Negotiate Curve at South Red Creek and SH 208
Thats a good looking pickup, I have one just like it but am missing the tailgate.
What happens to the property, tanks and such when Mr. Williams decides to sell and maybe new owner doesn't maintain or has erosion problems etc etc etc? Sue city hall??
