I feel that it's only fair that we should all as citizens of Victoria stick together in the crisses too. Why not do the pay cuts for them ? We are all having money problems and then we don't get any kind of help from the city or any officials . Some people have kids in elementary schools and in Jr. High and High school and look at the big turn we have to make to get our kids to school we have kids at west high , and instead of going to the Elementary and then to Cade Jr, and high school , Have to go to Patti Welder in town and then out cuero hiway to the high school . We can't even save a little money on gas No one thought about the people of this community , we can't even send our kids on a bus because they aren't save . So whats the problem with having some cuts for the county . I think all the officials and the elected should take pay cuts . Sorry if it hurts but " who" like I said who worried about helping us the people . alot of the kids in Cade Jr high aren't from the zone they are locked in because mom or dad or someone works there . alot of Parents are upset because of it .

I pray that we have good teachers this year that do care to teach and to set good examples for our children . Teachers that are not TEXTING each other or on the phone . And they don't even pay attention at meetings with parents because they are pretending to look for something under their desk when in reality they are texting . I was very upset about it but then it happened with an assistant principal , she said she was texting another assistant principal no wonder the kids do it in class . The teachers do it , the principals do it why not the kids . What else are the teachers and principals doing ? the administration should set good examples for the students . That old saying do as I say can't work if they see wrong examples . I don't need to name , names you'll know who you are . No ethics , no professionalizim . Maybe thats not their cup of tea .
someone said something about bad cops well I agree with them there are bad cops but a scanner won't help cause they are not going to tell what they did or what they are doing . If they are where they shouldn't be who is going to know . on the scanner you only here what they transmite not where they are and there is no television to see what they are doing right ot wrong . Some time ago I ran out ot gas in town and I gave a cop 10 dollars to get me some gas I had children in the car and couldn't leave them alone so I put my trust on a cop guess what I never saw him or my money nor the gas . Some cops have no pride they are just as bad as the criminals they call scom . And a scanner didn't help me now a C-B is a different story That can help sometimes better then a cell phone because you always have a signal . you never know who is on the other side it could be a bad cop . But I have met alot of cops that are good cops and they have a heart and pride and I have met some that are races so iether way god protect us and pray that the cop you meet is a kind one and god bless and protect good ones .
If the scanners go silent thats fine alot of people may not like it but , I think the criminals like much less . I just wish that when something is happening the tv station or even the radio station would really inform us . So we won't be in the dark . Like when we had that big flood in 98 that the our local tv station was showing a football game while some people were being being plucked off there roofs . And where were the reporters and the news station . I have to thank chanel 5 news out of San Antonio , who I feel did a wonderfull job they were the ones that found us and got us help . Victoria informs about things that happen in california and New york what about VICTORIA everything that happens in Victoria is important to us . And we depend on them to report those events to us . That would make alot of people happy . if the scanners were running that day which I'm sure they were alot of people didn't hear them cause , us they were trying to get out of harms way . We were told by other people that the police were going to some streets calling out and knocking on doors telling people to leave , but no one came down our street . we lived in the country and worked in the country so the local station was our only way of knowing what was going on but they were televising a football game . when we found out it was by way of chanel 5 in San Antonio . Victoria station felt it was more important to show a game then to inform the public maybe they said something about it at 4:00 p.m. that day but we weren't home at that time . by the time we found out it was to late to leave we were blocked off from the only way out for us and a 4 year old child . San Antonio was reporting ever 5 min. or so at least thats the way it seemed to us . We need a dependable television station that will inform the news because there are situtations where a scanner won't save you , just like a beeper can't help save you . you'll know some one whats you but you can't tell them whats wrong or where you are . I don't need to know where the cops are . I need to know where is the news people who are suppose to inform us ?????????????
Well Longshot when I have needed to see a specialist , it has been a problem because they wouldn't see me without a referral from my Dr. I feel that I was forced to do something I didn't need just to get what I needed . because you have to go to see your Dr and pay him so you can get the refferral , then go see the specialist does that make sense to you ? To have to pay just so that you can get an OKAY to see a specialist . yes you can make your choice of who to see but not without a refferral and then you may not be able to go to the hospital closer to your house because that Dr. of your choice isn't allowed to operate there . What do you call that ? back in 1992 I needed to see a woman Dr. and I ended up having to go to San Antonio because all those Doctors here needed a refferal , and I didn't have a primery care giver . And in San Antonio I didn't needed a refferal , I just walked in and the Dr. saw me . I have never needed to see a cardiologist as of yet but I have heard that you have to be reffered by your primery care giver to see a specialist . And every time I have needed to see one I've been told that I need to be reffered even to see a skin Dr.
if I have to go Detar to be treated by the Dr. of my choice because he can't work at CMC then I will and if my choice is to go with the Dr. that works at CMC then I'll go there but alot of times you may want to choose another Dr. and have your operation at CMC where is the freedom of choice ? I don't know why you get offended if I want a certain trash bag I'll go where they have it , I often shop in Corpus or Houston when I can or I happen to be there and there is a sale . so grow up and get over it .
I was also born in Victoria and all of you know that we have the Constitution of the United States that says : we have freedom of choice , to pick and choose . I want to practice that freedom or excerise my right I want to use my freedom to choose the the hospital and the Dr. and to have that Dr. treat me and operated on me because I know him , feel comfortable with him and most all because I trust him . I don't want someone I don't even know making that choice for me .Now if it is an emergency I am in an accident and I can't make that choice and there are no family members there fine then someone will have to make that choice for me . but If I am seeing a cardiologist I don't want to be referred to someone unknown to me , that is going to show up in my life a day or a week before my operation because Mr. Brown said so , who is Mr Brown ? surely not my relative , not a member of my family . He just runs CMC. when I go to HEB for groceries no one there tells me what I Have to buy I excercise my right because this is the usa we don't have that many rights left . if we buy property we may like the price or the location but we can't fence it on that street or how many trees you can have or even in some places what color you can paint or what kind of sideing to pick and alot of other things .We as Americans have rights Its up to us to excercise those rights . don't let our right of choice become something of the past . If we are able to choose then why give that up to Mr. Brown
I'm a mom too, and I feel that we as moms need to be more sensitive to what we as parents allow our children to were I have seen girls dressed like a teenager when they are only 7 yrs old. But understand I'm not defending anyone ,this is just my opinion . A 55 year old man has no business taking pictures of other peoples kids no matter how they are dressed .
