  • justataxpayer is correct. The exploding debt is going to obliterate the taxpayes of our village. All these projects are incrediably wasteful. We should not be using debt to finance these massive projects such as Luarent, Sam Houston, the Sewer plant and other road projects. How dare the village council do this! They should wait and save the money and pay cash for all these items.

  • There was a great lesson in the Gospel I heard at Church this morning. At the end, there was a line that said "You can only have one master".

    It reminded me these leaders need to rennet who they serve. They should only serve one master, us, the people.

    They need to be less concerned with giving construction contracts to their friends and more concerned with serving us, the people who put them in power.

  • I have several issues with this ongoing comedy of errors called Jaguar Hall:
    1. Who owned the buildings when they were purchased by UHV? If that answer was in the paper at the time of the purchase,I apologize for a memory lapse.
    2. More importantly,who supposedly did the "due diligence" with regard to the physical condition of the buildings? It appears that none or very little inspection was done prior to purchase given that one of the buldings had so much mold it was deemed unfit and was torn down and the other building still isn't finished almost a month past school starting and the entire place is till another month from "completion". I put that in parentheses because the conditions in the rooms in which students are being put do not sound completed and inspected for incomplete items. A punch list wasn't generated for the project.
    3. Why on earth would the powers-that-be at U.H. be willing to give the locla people the go-ahead for the expansion at the airport wahn they can't seem to handle waht they have now?
    If anyone can help with these queries,please post.
