I have always received substandard quality of care at the Lavaca County Medical Center. I believe what Dr. Powell has said. I know for a fact that hospital runs on skeleton crews because it is not cost effective to hire enough staff. The state really needs to look at that hospital!

It is society's fault! This society could not determine simple physical dicipiline from abuse so they called it all abuse. Now the parents are helpless. These kids are taught in school that any form of physical dicipiline is abuse and they encourage the kids to report their own parents. When the parents go to spank or correct the child they get threatened by their own child of being turned in for abuse. So the parents do not have much options other than talking to the child or grounding the child. That just does not work in some cases. I was raise with corporal punishment. I got a spanking at school. I got it at home too. I talked back at my parents and I got my mouth popped. I cursed and I got soap in my mouth. So guess what I did not get into trouble because I did not want spanked. I did not talk back because I did not want popped and I did not curse cause I did not like soap in my mouth. It was that simple. In my time they had bullies but it was not so many of them and they were punished for what they did. If they repeated the same thing they got sent off to a school for kids like that. It was simple! We all learned respect. We were not affraid to go to school we were afraid of getting in trouble in school and you better pray you did not get pops from a coach too.
It is a shame that anyone has to be afraid to learn. I believe it is the parents fault. These kids are raise with no dicipiline. I see kids running all over their parents all the time.For instance I was at a store in town and bought the last item of something all the girls want these days a zebra blanket. This was a faux fur one and it is beautiful I must say. When I was putting what I bought in my truck a woman came up to me told me that I had bought the last one and they were not going to get anymore. I ask her what she was talking about and took the blanket out of my basket and offered me what I paid for it. I told her no I was not selling it and took it back. Threw it in the back seat of my truck and locked the doors. She said you dont understand me, my daughter wants that blanket and points back at this 12-13 year old girl throwing a fit. I mean screaming and crying I want it. Get it momma. I want it. I walked past the woman and got in my truck and as I was leaving that woman got in her car with her brat kid in tow and chased me honking her horn and flashing her lights. I was horrified that people act like that. So I went turned into a bank parking lot without warning and the woman drove past. So I went out the other side of the parking lot and took a different way home.
Autistic children are very intellegent but they take more time and patience to teach so I believe they would benefit in a setting that focuses on them and their unique needs. Public schools are usually over crowded and the teachers just do not have the time to spend with each child and its just not fair.
Life happens what if these kids change their minds and do not go to college? Where does all the money go that was raised for their "college fund". Why dont this community develop a scholorship fund for children who lost a parent to a tragic disease. Then all the children left behind will have a "college fun" not just this one family.

We went this year and seen him perform and seen his work. I was fascinated by it. I took LOTs of pictures of it and of him carving a owl. We even bought a turtle from his wife. I am very impressed with his alligator but do not have the room to display it. I would actually buy one if I had a place to put it.
LOL That is so TRUE! I enjoyed this and it made me smile! Thanks!
I believe that they spend way too much money on advertisements and that money should be spent on finding a cure. It is sad that a fraction of the money raised actually goes to finding a cure. I do believe it is critical to educate everyone of this disease.
