Hi Jennifer. I was so amazed by your story, I had to tell you that I went to school with Mark Pekar. Recently, I have found a few friends on Facebook that went to school with me at St. Joseph. Mark was one of the boys in my class. I know how we were raised and the values our families gave us. I read this story and felt a sense of pride. I can't say I knew his wife Robin, but I am sure she must have been a wonderful woman. I am proud to say I know Mark Pekar and all the other students of St. Joseph Catholic School in Yoakum. We were blessed to be there. Thank you for sharing this story. I don't know where Mark is, but I pray he has a wonderful life.

What a blessing!! Congratulations!!!
No offense Boy Wonder, but you don't know that those owners did or didn't train that pitbull to be aggressive, even in play. So how can you judge if you don't know the whole story. I would want to know how they trained that dog since it was a puppy. Gotta know the whole story before the facts can be proven.
I love my pitbull and she will smile at you, but if you're an idiot, just try to get in her back yard. It won't be her that comes after you. It will be my Lab.
I'm curious to know whether any of the recent pitbull bites were linked to owner neglect or were these dogs strays?
Thanks to all the law enforcement and volunteers that searched for Kyler. I'm sure the family is grateful for your efforts. God bless you all.
It's difficult to imagine the excruciating sorrow this family is going through. As adults, we need to pray for the family because it's going to take a lot to get through it all. I'm sure Kyler's dad feels a great sense of responsibility for what happened. I do have a difficult time trying to understand how Kyler went so far without being noticed by anyone. Most people are home in the evenings. Someone had to see or hear something. If someone does know the truth, shame on you for being silent. As for the dog, Kyler probably tried to play with it by hugging it or pulling it's tail, but some dogs don't like that. My beagle doesn't like that. It was not the owner's fault for owning a pitbull. That dog was chained in it's own yard. No one wants to point fingers, but ultimately there are a few that will feel the responsibility for what has happened and I will pray for your grief and comfort.
Attention all readers: Keep this family in prayer.
Having a tattoo should not prevent a student from learning. When a student marks his/her body, they should be willing to take the consequences of having a tattoo. Most employers will ask that you cover your tattoo and it isn't that much different if the school is asking you to cover it. You wanted the tattoo, so act responsibly and cover it up while in school or work. Grow up. And by the way, I have a tattoo and I cover it for work and it doesn't bother me in any way to cover it up. That is part of being a grown up.
Henry was a great person. His cousin is right about the way he always laughed even if he was hurting inside. His laughter was great medicine for anyone. Working with him for the past ten years has been a pleasure and a blessing. I will definitely miss my friend.
The last time I heard a conversation about legalizing "pot", I wanted to throw something at them. So what if the "pot" is a natural herb. It obviously kills too. Today's newspaper said enough with the death of the construction worker on Laurent. Explain to that family if it was legal to smoke "pot" why their family member is gone. And since it's not legal, the punishment should be even stricter. Yeah, I know, alcohol kills too. But you knwo what, you can call a cab, call a friend, call your mother and I'm sure they would prefer picking up your drunk behind vs. planning a funeral. Besides, if you can't drink sensibly, then maybe you should reconsider drinking.
NO! "POT" should not be legalized in my opinion.
