Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz meets with Ingleside LRA officials

Wednesday, April 23, 2008 5:17 PM CDT


Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz met with local officials at the T.P. McCampbell Airport in Ingleside last Friday to discuss the Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority (ILRA) and tour the regional airport facility.

Those in attendance included San Patricio County Commissioner Jim Price, Nueces County Commissioner Oscar Ortiz, ILRA Chairperson and Ingleside Mayor Pro-Tem Stella Herrmann, Ingleside Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Sandi Ridgley, Naismith Engineering representative John Michael, Ingleside City Council members Willie Vaden and Stewart Wilson, and Airport Manager George Alvarado.

Discussion among the attendees at the two hour meeting included the topic of how regionalism was being achieved in a new way through the ILRA.

“The ILRA is responsible for offsetting the economic losses as a result of the closure of NAS Ingleside. I am proud that Nueces County and San Patricio County are a part of this group,” said Congressman Ortiz. “Though there is a long road ahead, I am pleased with the ILRA's work and the progress they will make.”

“The ILRA's re-use plan will help ensure economic stability in the region,” added Congressman Ortiz. “We find ourselves in a period of growth and development in several outlying areas of the Coastal Bend, including both south of Corpus Christi in the Kingsville and Robstown areas, and to the north in Ingleside.”


“This was a great day for the Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority,” said Ridgley. “Regionalism is the wave of the future with regard to the way in which both state and federal dollars are allocated to achieve smart growth.”

“It is a true honor to have the Congressman to take time out of his extremely busy schedule to tour our facility and listen to our vision for future airport operations,” said Price, whose commissioner's precinct has jurisdiction for the airport. “Our counties and cities are working well together for the common good.”

“I have found that there is a new awareness, not only among those of us on the ILRA, but as well among our four entities,” said Herrmann. “We work together well for a common purpose, and I believe it has brought our jurisdictions closer together in many ways.”

Congressman Ortiz was given a tour of the ILRA office, which is managed by Interim Project Manager Rose Collin. The Congressman also received a tour of the airport facilities by Alvarado, who was recently named Texas Department of Transportation's Airport Manager of the Year. “The Congressman and I have known each other since growing up in Robstown,” said Alvarado, “but it had been over 30 years since we have seen one another.”

The Congressman's visit also included lunch at Floyd's Ranch House, owned and operated by Ingleside City Councilman Luis Lamas. The group was joined at the restaurant by San Patricio County Commissioner Nina Trevino and Ingleside Mayor Elaine Kemp. The Congressman was greeted by several locals who were thrilled and surprised to have the opportunity to meet with him.



“I had been told that this place had some of South Texas' best chicken fried steak,” Congressman Ortiz said to Lamas, “and I wasn't disappointed.”

Ray Mc Murrey Is From Here, He Still Believes Like It Says In The Intro, "I'll be a straight-shooter & a square-dealer "& He Does "Remember The Alamo"


"I'll be as hardy of mind as I am of body. I'll be a straight-shooter and a square-dealer. My family name will be sacred My word will be as good as any contract. I'll remember the Alamo. I'll stick by my friends. And I'll eat more chicken-fried steak."

"We do not win by replacing a corporate Republican with a corporate Democrat," said Mr. McMurrey, speaking to about a dozen supporters at an East Austin residence.


Ray told me this before he spoke at his Official Announcement to run against the Corporate Democratic Military Industrial Complex Candidate for Texas US Senator.

A very passionate candidate who is anything other than a fake or what some like to call a politician.

Ray is not a Politician and this is a very very positive attribute.

Dont get me wrong he is very well suited for the Senate and the diplomacy is there but there is a sternness that demands his respect kind of like the respect and command he possesses in the classroom. I think we can all agree, if he can handle our youth in the classroom he will do well for us in Washington.

Two more things

Remember the Alamo

and

Stay tuned for Jan 2 next year.

"We do not win by replacing a corporate Republican with a corporate Democrat," said Mr. McMurrey, speaking to about a dozen supporters at an East Austin residence.


Ray Mc Murrey is from Corpus Christi.

He tells us upfront of his progressive leanings and his disappointment in both of the Hegemonic Parties.

Hegemony,.... Watch the Movie "Hot Fuzz".

The Serpent IN the Garden January 14, 1996 Houston: Inaction Allowed Abuser To Roam For 10 Years.

If this was leaked to the media did the Corpus Christi Caller Times tell us about this pedophile?

Did the Caller publish any stories on this matter?

And the CCISD Board did they inform the community?

The Serpent IN the Garden January 14, 1996 Houston: CCISD board President Henry Nuss AQUIESCED. CCISD eagerly supplied pedophile with young patients - even after he had been publicly charged.

CORPUS CHRISTI - James Plaisted was a respected child psychologist, a deacon in one of the city's largest Baptist congregations and the father of four.



He also was a child molester so brazen he escorted little girls into church and fondled them under his coat while listening to the sermon.



Parents knew. So did church pastors, school officials and state regulators. But few did anything to stop him, and those who tried were remarkably unsuccessful.



It took 10 years to get Plaisted behind bars. Only he knows how many children he molested during that time.



Last month, Plaisted - already serving a two-year federal prison term for luring a Texas patient to Boston to continue molesting her -was brought back to Corpus Christi in chains.

He pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting four girls and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.



State regulators have yet to revoke his license to practice psychology.



""I think the Plaisted case is the model of what happens when the system fights with itself," said Susan Snyder, a Kingsville attorney and former prosecutor who tried to lock up Plaisted in 1992.



""Obviously, there have been safeguards in place to prevent this man all along, but either (state officials) were too lazy or too busy, or too scared of the politics of going and yanking this man's license," Snyder said. ""It's not the legal system failing. It's the people within the legal system that refuse to let the legal system work."



It's not as if no one tried.



Carmen Alvarado, the mother of the first child to accuse Plaisted more than 10 years ago, sought criminal charges against the therapist and filed an ethics complaint with the Texas Board of Examiners of Psychologists. She alleged that Plaisted had fondled her son's penis during a late-night counseling session.



Alvarado called the Parkdale Baptist Church, where Plaisted, 46, was a deacon.



""They said they were leaving it in God's hands," she recalled.

""I don't think they were thinking straight at the time."



She went to other parents. She got no help.



In the end, it was just her son's word against Plaisted, who told a Corpus Christi jury in 1986 that the 6-year-old child was a habitual liar and a pyromaniac who derived sexual excitement from setting fires. It didn't help that a new prosecutor was assigned to the case just before trial.



The jury acquitted Plaisted; his practice continued.



""It made me mad because when I went for help, all I asked was for them to testify," Alvarado recalled. ""We lost because my son was the only witness we had."



""It was a very tough call to make," said another victim's mother. ""And looking back, I really should have crucified him, but I didn't. I chose not to after talking to my attorney. He told me it would just really traumatize my daughter."



The Corpus Christi woman, who asked not to be identified, said she did confront Plaisted and his wife, who were neighbors in 1984, when her daughter was allegedly molested while spending the night with one of Plaisted's daughters.



""He did not deny it," she said. ""He said he could have done it



in his sleep."



Plaisted's wife laughingly added that she and her husband often made love at night, and he would not remember the next morning, the woman said.



The woman, who was also a member of the Parkdale Baptist Church, recalled telling church officials later about Plaisted's molestations.



""But it didn't seem to make any difference," she said. ""The church really backed him up, and a lot of people left the church after that."



Plaisted's attorney, Doug Tinker, refused to allow the Chronicle to interview his client. The criminal defense lawyer, who earlier this year represented Yolanda Saldivar, who was convicted of murdering Tejano star Selena, declined to discuss the Plaisted case.



The victims' families have since sued the church for negligence, but Parkdale's lawyer argues the congregation should not be held responsible for Plaisted's actions.



""It would be the church's wish to get this thing resolved without causing any additional hurt to anyone," said attorney Van Huseman. But he added, ""If a child gets molested in the middle of the service, how does that get to be the pastor's fault?"



Plaisted - a Nebraska native who served in the Army in Vietnam -came to Corpus Christi in 1982 with impeccable credentials, having earned his doctorate in clinical and child psychology from Auburn University in Alabama in 1981.



He quickly built a private practice, and over the years, developed a good reputation as an expert on brain dysfunction.



The Corpus Christi school district, along with local pediatricians, eagerly supplied him with young patients - even after he had been publicly charged. Members of the church also sought his help, and he had hospital privileges at the prestigious Driscoll Children's Hospital, a South Texas institution known both for quality care and charity.



Neighbors described Plaisted as pleasant, reserved, well-spoken. He was methodical, they said, and liked to work on projects around the house.



Plaisted recruited some of his victims from broken homes, showering the children with gifts, inviting them and their parents to Thanksgiving dinners. One 9-year-old girl who spent the night with Plaisted's daughter told prosecutors the psychologist molested her on the sofa in his living room while he and the children watched the movie "Home Alone"

on video.



He curried favor with his victims' parents by lending them money and refusing repayment, or by buying them air conditioners and other gifts. One mother even acted as a character witness for the therapist during the Alvarado trial, unaware that her own child was being molested.



""The bottom line is this guy had complaints filed against him at the psychology board - and they are serious - and the board doesn't notify the school about the complaints," said Jerry Boswell, director of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a group funded by the Church of Scientology (SEE CORRECTION) that documents cases such as Plaisted's. ""And the school is still referring children to this guy."



Corpus Christi school administrators said they used Plaisted infrequently for psychological testing of students, although school records and correspondence indicate he was a consultant from 1983 until he was indicted for child sexual assault in late 1992.



School administrators have identified records of five students referred to him for psychological testing between 1985 and 1992. There are no records prior to 1985.



School board President Henry Nuss, who has served on the board for seven years, said he first heard of the Plaisted case when he was contacted by the Houston Chronicle last week.



""We certainly should be more selective in who we're using," he said.



After Plaisted was charged in the Alvarado case in April 1986, Robert J. Garcia, the school district's special education director, wrote to the state psychology board to ask about the psychologist's record. The agency's executive director replied that Plaisted's license had been suspended, but because the psychologist was in the process of suing to get it back, he remained licensed to practice. The letter gave no details about the nature of the complaints.



""He was given a clean bill of health by the only agency that had anything to say about it," said Dr. Adrian Haston, a psychologist who coordinates the school district's psychological services, and who, years ago, shared an office with Plaisted.



Haston emphasized that none of the schoolchildren referred to Plaisted were molested. ""And we never had anything untoward, any problems of that sort," he said.



Asked why the district would risk using a psychologist once accused of being a child molester, Haston replied, ""This is something the district did, and you can ask the director of special education why."



Garcia said in a recent telephone interview that he could not remember whether he knew about the child molestation charges at the time he wrote to the psychology board.



""All I know is we asked for what his status was and they said he could still practice," he said. ""We knew he was under review, but we didn't know what for.



""Look, the state board of psychologists, they're the ones that allowed him to continue to practice," Garcia added angrily.

""If anyone should be asked as to why this guy was allowed to continue, it should be the state board of psychology."



Pressed for further details, Garcia abruptly ended the interview and hung up the phone.



Although Plaisted was acquitted in August 1986 in the Alvarado case, the psychology board continued its investigation and ruled in November of that year that Plaisted had violated professional standards.



The board officially suspended his license for two years, but said he would be allowed to resume his practice in three months.



Meanwhile, Plaisted challenged the suspension in state district court in Austin, arguing the psychology board had unfairly considered allegations that had not been introduced during his hearing, denying him the opportunity to defend himself against them. The judge agreed, and in January 1987 reversed Plaisted's suspension.



While the board was investigating Plaisted's case, they were contacted by Corpus Christi psychologist George Kramer.

Kramer, who had hired Plaisted in 1982 before Plaisted was licensed, told the board to subpoena records of the state Department of Human Resources. It did, and found other instances of alleged molestation by Plaisted.



In April 1989, the board reached an agreement with the psychologist that allowed him to keep his license if he agreed to be supervised for 11/2years. Plaisted was to treat children only in the presence of an associate or in a location where he could be observed by a television monitor. He also was to pay to have Corpus Christi psychologist Joseph Horvat supervise his casework.



Horvat met with Plaisted weekly, but after a year - convinced that Plaisted was doing nothing wrong - he recommended the supervision be terminated six months early. The board decided to continue the supervision.



""I have found no evidence in any way, shape or form of any behavior on his part which could be in any way construed as unprofessional or unethical," Horvat wrote to the board.



Included in one of his reports to the board was a review of Plaisted's treatment of an 8-year-old girl - a child Plaisted was later charged with molesting.



The board's general counsel, Barbara Holthaus, acknowledged past actions taken by the agency were inadequate.



""With hindsight, of course it wasn't appropriate, because look at what happened," Holthaus said. But she said the board has since added lay people to its ranks and has a new, tougher state law giving it better enforcement powers.



""Now, if we get a report that a psychologist is molesting a client, we can go before a judge and say we want to temporarily suspend the license," she said.



Holthaus said the board has filed a motion to revoke Plaisted's license, but Plaisted is fighting it.



""It's all kind of moot, because he's incarcerated," she said.



Soon after Plaisted completed his board-ordered supervision, Corpus Christi police received new information from state child welfare workers that Plaisted had been molesting girls at his office, in church and at home in his hot tub.



Former detective Eric Michalak, who now works in Colorado, remembered taking the Plaisted case to a Nueces County assistant district attorney for prosecution.



""He wanted to get a warrant for the doctor and arrest him, because we had very strong evidence against him," Michalak said. ""We had multiple victims and you had a guy in the position he was in, where he had access to all these victims.

You would want to take quick action rather than let it go on for so long."



The prosecutor was overruled by then-District Attorney Grant Jones, Michalak said. ""(Jones) just said, `We're not getting a warrant. We're taking our time.' He wanted the kids reinterviewed by one of the prosecutors.



""Any time you go after someone like that, there's a lot of politics that come into play," Michalak added. ""Instead of stepping in right then, and bringing it out in the open and taking it to a grand jury (for indictment), they delayed."



Jones contends that any delay in prosecution was an effort ""to tie the case down tight. We didn't want to lose him twice,"

said Jones, on whose watch Plaisted was acquitted in the Alvarado case.



Jones called it ""outrageous" the psychology board still hasn't revoked Plaisted's license.



""They should have done it in 1986," he said. ""What they want to do is wait around until you go to trial and you convict him, and then they come in behind your conviction and revoke his license. Well, what's he doing in the meantime? He could be out in the community molesting kids for two years."



Michalak said the case was finally taken to the grand jury several months later after he leaked the information about Plaisted's investigation to the local media.



""It was taking too long, and it wasn't being handled like another case," he said. ""And it was because he was so prominent in the community."



Plaisted was finally indicted in Corpus Christi in October 1992. He posted bond, closed his practice in Corpus Christi, and negotiated an agreement with the psychology board to place his license on inactive status until he could prove his innocence.



He then moved to Boston, where he enrolled in Boston University Law School and successfully completed his first year of studies by May 1994.



While in law school, Plaisted began calling a former patient - the girl whose treatment Horvat had reviewed in Corpus Christi. Plaisted convinced the girl's mother - who was also a patient of his - to bring the girl to Boston for additional therapy.



Plaisted's plans were foiled when a policeman setting up a speed trap in his neighborhood accidentally intercepted on his police radio a sexually explicit telephone call between the girl and Plaisted, who was using a cordless phone.



FBI agents were called in, six other calls were taped, and Plaisted was arrested on June 3, 1994, after he met the girl, then 13, and her mother at the train station and took them to a budget motel.



""The mother wasn't aware" of the molestations, said Adolfo Aguilo, an assistant Nueces County district attorney. ""The mother had a borderline personality disorder - she developed dependency on people -and unfortunately for her the person she developed a dependency on was Dr. Plaisted."



Sgt. Michael Harpster, a police detective from suburban Boston who helped arrest Plaisted, described him as ""very congenial, almost shy."



""He'd answer questions very courteously, but he didn't show any outward signs of knowing the seriousness of the situation," Harpster said.



Last January, Plaisted was sentenced by a federal judge in Boston to a two-year prison term after he pleaded guilty to transporting a minor across state lines to engage in illegal sexual activity.



The Corpus Christi conviction and sentence came almost a year later.



In the end, Plaisted admitted molesting four victims. But prosecutors say no one will ever know how many others failed to come forward.



""I imagine there could be several other victims. Through his practice and the church he probably had access over the years to thousands of children," said Aguilo, the Corpus Christi prosecutor who eventually secured Plaisted's guilty plea.



""To me, any kid that came in contact with this guy was a victim in some way or another," added Michalak.



When Plaisted was sentenced last month, it was a bitter emotional meeting for many of his young victims and their parents, who had been called as witnesses in case Plaisted decided against the plea bargain.



Parents said Plaisted stood up straight, held his head high and looked the judge in the eye. And when he saw the relatives of his former victims, he acted as if he were attending a reunion of old friends, they said. One parent said Plaisted looked as if he thought they were there as supporters or character witnesses.



""He turned around and gave the families a big smile," Alvarado said. ""I couldn't believe it."



Alvarado, who sued Plaisted in civil court, has received a settlement for an undisclosed amount. Her son, now a teen-ager, is still struggling with his past abuse, she said, and she continues to feel betrayed by those who would not join her in speaking out years ago.



""I told them if they had helped me in the beginning, none of this would have happened," she said.

essenceofpinocchio: Sonias makes PRO CHOICE Statement to Censor instead of Admitting her wrong and Apologizing

Why was the sub-thread deleted?

Sonias: You have earned the Pinocchio Award for your prevarication and cheating!


This sub thread was deleted at the Democratic Underground because SONIAS found herself in checkmate. In poor taste she chose to flip the board over in the interest of Censoring her defeat.


23. I would normally say welcome to DU dannoynted1

But seeing that you have disabled your profile, i.e. hiding like a coward, combined with your support of republicans on a Democratic board makes you stick out like the troll you probably are. Go back to freeperville dannoynted1!



Sonia

36. How is it.......

you call my Lioness names from behind a keyboard and of all things; because her profile is disabled?



We are here with our real identities acknowledged, our good name precedes us. Support of republicans? Maybe you mistake us for our elected Democrats who support the Delay Brothers and are frequently absent when it is time to vote on bartered legislation trade outs. Now back to the ad hominem attack, your reasoning is fallacial as it implies we are hiding our identities as if we have something to fear. Ridicule and attempts to discredit are only last resort attempts of futility. Sonia, you are wrong and you should apologize.

in cause number 113, denied the appellant's application for a writ of habeas corpus, and ultimately granted the State's motion to revoke......DUH!!!!

CORPUS CHRISTI — The Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office may lose certification and be forced to delay critical reports without more workspace and a larger staff in the next two years, officials said.

The office is forced to ask the Commissioners Court for extra resources estimated at $640,000 for the next fiscal year to manage a rapidly increasing workload and national recertification in 2009 that mandates a maximum ratio of autopsies performed for each forensic pathologist, said Nueces County Medical Examiner Dr. Ray Fernandez. That estimate includes a one-time cost of $500,000 for a 2,000-square-foot addition to the office and hiring another pathologist with a $140,000 annual salary.

As medical examiner, Fernandez is responsible for investigating the deaths of all people who die violently, suddenly or unexpectedly. Since 1996, the number of cases reported to the office increased by 54 percent to 1,528 deaths in 2006 from 990 cases in 1996, according to county medical examiner data. The escalating number of cases results from increasing population, more immigrant traffic in the area and a higher frequency of death reports from surrounding counties, Fernandez said.

"The volume of work has grown tremendously," Fernandez said. "Right now I'm the chief examiner, the associate and the one who locks up the place."

While the office isn't backlogged, it is getting close and may start seeing delays in autopsy reports, death certificates and other documents if something isn't done, Fernandez said. These documents directly impact residents in the ability to execute an estate and file insurance claims, he said.

A delay in autopsy reports -- or if the office isn't recertified during its next review scheduled for fall 2009 -- could jeopardize the prosecution of homicides and police investigations, said District Attorney Carlos Valdez. Prosecutors are unable to prove a homicide case without the testimony and findings of the medical examiner, Valdez said.

"We're talking about the criminal justice system -- ultimately protection of the public," he said. "If something breaks down in the criminal justice system, it affects everything and in the end it may cause guilty people to walk free."

The Nueces County office is one of five statewide that are certified by the National Association of Medical Examiners out of 13 offices statewide, according to the association. According to Valdez, that certification adds a degree of credibility during criminal trials.

certified office

Medical examiner's offices, along with all statewide crime labs, were required to be certified under a 2005 state law, Fernandez said. However, the state granted a temporary exemption to medical examiners before the law took effect.

The Nueces County Office received certification by the National Association of Medical Examiners in November 2004 to gear up for what is expected to be a requirement in coming years. The exemption still is in effect but may be dropped during the 2009 legislative session, Fernandez said.

One of the certification provisions bars having more than 325 autopsies for each forensic pathologist, and the recommended maximum is no more than 250 autopsies each.

In 2006, the Nueces County office performed 328 autopsies stemming from Nueces County, which does not include autopsies of bodies from the 16 surrounding counties the office serves.

Data for autopsies from surrounding counties in the past few years was not immediately available, but likely add 100 to 150 autopsies per year, Fernandez said.

"We are at a crossroads here -- we're either going to move resources, maintain accreditation and be in compliance or expect to see delays," Fernandez said. "If nothing's done (the delays) probably would come sooner rather than later. It would probably be in the coming year or the following year after that."

considering request

Fernandez presented to commissioners requests for a facility upgrade, an extra forensic pathologist and an assistant last month during the court's budget workshops. County Judge Loyd Neal said last week that the court understands the request and will come to a decision before the 2007-2008 budget is finalized in September.

"We don't want this office not to be certified," Neal said. "With that said, there's a price tag attached to that of several hundred thousand dollars. ... One of the issues we will look at is the importance of doing this in a timely basis, and how do we pay for it."

The 2,000-square-foot expansion of the office would include an office for the extra forensic pathologist, additional workspace and a family grieving room, Fernandez said.

The request also includes hiring a permanent autopsy assistant.

"We certainly are going to work with (Dr. Fernandez) in every way we can to make sure we've looked at all alternatives and make sure we are properly equipped and funded for when inspection comes," Neal said. "But there's no guarantees. We have several million dollars' worth of requests before us and this is one of them."

The number of cases reported to the office increased by 54% to 1,528 deaths in 2006 from 990 cases in 1996.

Texas State Representative House District 33: Keep Your Promises Solly. Remember Miller? Why are CCISD Students still running at large during school d

Texas State Representative House District 33: Keep Your Promises Solly. Remember Miller? Why are CCISD Students still running at large during school day hours?

Friday, May 25, 2007

Keep Your Promises Solly. Remember Miller? Why are CCISD Students still running at large during school day hours?



CCISD: Why are CCISD Students allowed to run at large during school day hours?



Education is for our Children, our Youth, our Future. Children and Youth need constant redirection and set boundaries at home and at school as well. When a minor is allowed to run at large during the school day hours whether it is in the halls, leaving or returning a closed campus or simply unaccounted for is irresponsible of the caretaker whose custody in which he / she is placed.
Kenedeno



An absent student is one who does not arrive at school in the morning and is absent for the WHOLE Day. The student was never on campus. The Parent is responsible for the student getting to school (requiring the student to attend school). If the student does not get to school it is the Parent’s responsibility not necessarily the Parent’s fault. There are circumstances where the student will walk in the front door and out the back door without attending a single class. This is where the attendance officers need to improve their due diligence like the old days.

Once the student is counted present in the morning; the Parent has required the student (child) to attend school. Once the student is verified in attendance at the beginning of the school day the student is in the custody of the School.

If the student is tardy or skips class (on campus or off campus) this happens on the watch of the school. The Parent if informed should cooperate and communicate with the School Counselors Administrators and the Attendance Officer to correct the behavior. The Security and Attendance officer should take notice and tighten the belt. This is a security issue as well; there is no excuse for students coming and going outside of the lunch period and it is imperative that attendance irregularities be dealt with within 24 hours. This is easily done with our modern technology.

Instead, what we are seeing is the Attendance Officers documenting the absences as they accumulate and filing on the Parent and student when the number of absences are achieved.

Solly, did you forget about the issues and the kids at Miller and CCISD as a whole?

CCISD: Freedom of Information Request: The process the CCISD Board used is unethical and unfair.

CCISD: Freedom of Information Request: The process the CCISD Board used is unethical and unfair.

CCISD: Freedom of Information Request: The process the CCISD Board used is unethical and unfair.


Freedom of Information Request

This Publication request any and all communications including email and written correspondence from one week before Trustee Harry Williams resigned.

Must I formalize it on Monday?

Think I am bluffing?

You gotta ask yourself

Do you feel lucky?

Well Do ya?

Go ahead.........


You guys get the idea?

Now, don't go and seek the OAG's opinion as it will delay our children.

Just fess up and conduct business with honor and integrity and at least give us an appearance of due process. Not one black appointment. You guys are definitely walking on thin ice or maybe already fallen through but just don't know it. Such inadequacy is unacceptable.

CORPUS CHRISTI - CCISD school board members interviewed five candidates Friday to fill the board position vacated by Reverend Harry Williams.

The school board said it will set another meeting to discuss the finalists, and will possibly make a decision then, but still no word on when that would be.

Williams served the school board for more than seven years before resigning last month.






Nick Adame
"Do not be a disservice to our community and choose because this guy is my friend or this guy is my business associate," Dr. Nick Adame said. "I don't want to hear that. I want to hear that we're going to choose somebody because they're going to do right for the community."




Last week, the board narrowed the list of 20 candidates to five
Kenedeno:

Where is the criteria the process for "narrowing the list"?

The process the CCISD Board used is unethical and unfair. Every single applicant took the time to fill out an application, and the thought process for the letter of interest and update of their resume and references. For all intensive purposes this CCISD Board just threw that work product into the trash can while opting for business partners, friends cronies and industry allies.

It is not about the 5 selected it is about how the 5 were selected. It is not about Barrera or Prezas or Bill Clark or Lucy Rubio.

It is about a change of policy where policy is defined by processes of the past. Lucy is the only one with the guts to make the motion, "for the board to scrap the current process and start over. There was no second to the motion." Are there others in that room who agree with her, but politically, they are bound & gagged. The current process is in conflict with current policy. The current process is now a civil rights issue. Is that what CCISD wanted, another Cisneros v CCISD?






We have 19 Candidates who deserve Equal Opportunity and fair consideration. It is called due process.


1. Herbert Cromwell Arbuckle, III Retired Teacher
2. Rolando G. Barrera Insurance Agent
3. Tony C. Diaz, Ed.D. Retired CCISD Administrator
4. Victor Frazier, Ed.D. Minister and University Instructor
5. Cezar Galindo Business Owner and College Instructor
6. Marsha Lynn Grace Professor of Education
7. Coretta Graham Lawyer
8. Helen Gurley, Ph.D. Educator, Director of Academics
9. Patricia Harris Educator
10. Robert Elliott Jones Pastor and Business Manager
11. Deborah W. Johnson Retired Firefighter
12. Bradford Lee Kisner Director of Music and Fine Arts
13. Verna Faye Portis Retired CCISD Administrator
14. Raul R. Prezas, Ed.D. College Professor
15. Norman Haden Ransleben Certified Public Accountant
16. Woodrow Mac Sanders Medical Social Worker
17. Ronald G. Sepulveda Athletic Aquatic Superintendent
18. George Wetzel Retired Public School Administrator/Consultant
19. Goldie Lamarr Wooten Retired Educator

Rubio has said she disagrees with the selection process and would have preferred to use a scoring system instead.

Trustees selected the five candidates to be interviewed by each nominating one from a pool of 20 applicants.

We elect you guys to represent the district with honor & integrity

But before trustees interviewed the first candidate, trustee Lucy Rubio motioned for the board to scrap the current process and start over. There was no second to the motion.

Rubio has said she disagrees with the selection process and would have preferred to use a scoring system instead.


CCCT Editorial

The trustees' refusal to lay out the cards is beyond irritating; it borders on the outrageous.

Particularly disturbing is the fact that three new trustees elected last year - Carol Scott, John Longoria and Dwayne Hargis, all of whom emphasized their intent to bring new openness to the board - appear to have bought into the mum's-the-word ethos that has dominated this exercise.

To be sure, they (and their colleagues) could, and should, reverse their field.




CCISD Trustees: Pick and choose Policy Making with malice. Shame on YOU.

CORPUS CHRISTI - CCISD school board members have decided not to change their policy which forbids seniors who fail the TAKS from graduating.

One parent we spoke with Thursday said the policy didn't make sense, because while students who fail the TAKS test during the school year aren't allowed to take part in graduation ceremonies. The same doesn't hold true for summer school grads. They're allowed to participate in summer graduation ceremonies without knowing whether they passed the test.

The decision didn't sit well with some parents and students.

School board member Lucy Rubio had hoped to amend the policy, and allow seniors who failed the TAKS to at least walk in with their class during may commencement. But other school board members didn't agree.

CCISD: Dr. Nick Adame puts CCISD Board Members on Notice. Maybe we need to fire em all and start over?

CCISD: Dr. Nick Adame puts CCISD Board Members on Notice. Maybe we need to fire em all and start over?



After analyzing the recent events surrounding the resignation of CCISD Board Trustee Harry Williams (1 of 3 at large district positions); one thing IS clear. That one thing is Due Process (or lack of it). Immediately one's memory of search firm fiascos and the CCISD Board tool of choice, the Interim Superintendent buffer / scapegoat. The process was elaborate and ethical reasons or rule were claimed as the reason for the process.

Well, why such a rush fellas?

Why is the CCISD board in such a hurry to fill this position?

A Superintendent position and a Trustee position; one we wine, dine and lodge and the other we announce for applications for a month or so and "narrow the list down" from 20 to 5 in most expedient fashion. Now, making a long story short we have 20 candidates who invested their creative, intellectual and professional abilities into a work product they hope will be scrutinized by the Board and be successfully competitive. A good letter of interest comes only from the heart. The application is at times tedious but at least it is more objective than the TAKS. Updating one's resume and with a list of references most meaningful to the position and all of this for 15 to get thrown in the trash can and the 5 resumes reamaining are to place on public display

"Board members plan to review all applications, interview selected candidates in May, and then vote on a replacement to fill the vacancy by the end of June."




It is without doubt very little reading was spent on any candidate by the CCISD Entrust Insurance Clique.

The following candidates submitted applications to Mr. Louis J. Garza, President, CCISD Board of Trustees, by the 4:30 p.m. deadline as stated on the application:

1. Herbert Cromwell Arbuckle, III Retired Teacher
2. Rolando G. Barrera Insurance Agent
3. Tony C. Diaz, Ed.D. Retired CCISD Administrator
4. Victor Frazier, Ed.D. Minister and University Instructor
5. Cezar Galindo Business Owner and College Instructor
6. Marsha Lynn Grace Professor of Education
7. Coretta Graham Lawyer
8. Helen Gurley, Ph.D. Educator, Director of Academics
9. Patricia Harris Educator
10. Robert Elliott Jones Pastor and Business Manager
11. Deborah W. Johnson Retired Firefighter
12. Bradford Lee Kisner Director of Music and Fine Arts
13. Verna Faye Portis Retired CCISD Administrator
14. Raul R. Prezas, Ed.D. College Professor
15. Norman Haden Ransleben Certified Public Accountant
16. Woodrow Mac Sanders Medical Social Worker
17. Ronald G. Sepulveda Athletic Aquatic Superintendent
18. George Wetzel Retired Public School Administrator/Consultant
19. Goldie Lamarr Wooten Retired Educator

OK, only 14 application packages were tossed and we are left with 5 choices.


The word coming from those who are "In the Know" describe a flawed integrity in the choice process and a lack of integrity for trustees to go along with this process. According to Gambi Gamboa, "John Longoria, Carol Scott and Dwayne Hargis already have chosen and will officially choose Roland Barrera as soon as Friday". Lucy Rubio and Louis Garza support Raul Prezas. Bill Clark supports his initial choice of Norman Haden Ransleben.

Hey guys, this is unacceptable!

Now, GO DIRECTLY BACK TO THE RESIGNATION AND START OVER, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT CRONY POINTS AND FORFEIT ALL ENTRUST INSURANCE POLICIES FOR A FULL REFUND BACK TO CCISD.

PROFITEERING OFF OF OUR CHILDREN'S SCHOOL DISTRICT BY A MIDDLEMAN IS AGAINST THE RULES & THWARTS PUBLIC POLICY.

I don't have anything against Mr Barrera and he seems IMO a generally overall good person. It is the way MR Barrera is being installed, the lack of process and this Board's double standard hypocrisy that is deplored by this publication.

Nueces De La Parra: Nobody kicked Joe Elizondo off of the CCREDC Board. He was inebriated and "with" females not his wife. Ask Denise about the "Bachelorettes' dancing w/ her hubby?

If the situation was reversed I would definitely be the bad guy. Maybe I should go yell at Juan's next event "WHO GIVES A F//K" and chant the CCREDC mantra Chorus. "JUAN MORE" "JUAN MORE" and ask him if he remembers? Juan must be held to a higher standard. Keep the reigns tight on him and everytime he starts to veer byte his a$$.

LOL


Joe Elizondo, surely he is a gentle man and a member of our leadership INFRASTRUCTURE? However, there must be HOUSECLEANING and the "Pulling of Weeds" that poisons us from the Top Down.


Elizondo began chanting JUAN MORE, JUAN MORE over and over (increasing in menacing heckle tone). Everyone ignored him so he continued with the JUAN MORE, JUAN MORE escalation. Then the Guitar Guy with the HAt "straight off of the sunset strip" was suggesting songs (lead ins). Elizondo yelled, "WHO GIVES A FUCK" and some other MINUTIA (uncalled for). He was directing his disrespect at the stage. My wife & I at the same time said, "HEY" and we turned to him with a meeting of the eyes. His group separated and Elizondo departed in a new truck. The others with him were friendly & charming before and after.

with this cavalier mentality DMC can forget about any successful Bond elections in the near future.


  • The Community is watching. We know we were lied to.

  • When we accepted the President’s resignation, we asked that all pending litigation against DMC (due to allegations against the DMC President) be dismissed.

  • When this institution, DMC Executives and Agents give the community its word; does it have no meaning?

  • We have asked for the Board to place this President on Administrative leave pending the outcome of ongoing proceedings. Even in the slightest of allegations our City Police Chief has set a perfect example and a working example of what one does when in a sensitive position and he is accused of impropriety.

· “Why leave now?” We’re all familiar with the expression, “When the time’s right, you’ll know it.” I can say to you with absolute conviction that now is the best time for me, both professionally and personally.

· http://delmarhousekeeping.blogspot.com/2007/02/dr-carlos-garcia-bows-out-gracefully.html

  • Why is he still here?

  • Where is the accountability of this board to its constituency, to our community?

  • The Del Mar President represented to the community his resignation.

  • The community accepted the resignation.

  • Why is he still here?

  • Why were the contracts renewed?

  • Were the contracts short or long term?

  • And with this cavalier mentality DMC can forget about any successful Bond elections in the near future.

Gulf Coast Lefty YOU Need to Remember Your Words

Tokyo Rose: "I used you all"

Lovely little article in the Caller-Times today. Tokyo Rose tells all. She freely admits she was a Republican, until it got in the way of her ambition, so she became a Democrat, until it got in the way of her ambition, so now she's a Republican. Well, I don't know about her true party affiliation, but I do know she's dishonest about it. Which, quite frankly, causes me to wonder what else she's not being honest about. I thought judges were supposed to have something called integrity.



Then Tokyo Rose has the gall to say, "I really hope my friends in the Democratic Party understand and I hope that our friendship will transcend party politics." News flash, TR: I understand completely. You used me (and every other good Democrat) like a doormat on a rainy day. Don't worry, Tokyo--I'm going to be just as loyal a "friend" to you as you were to me. I'm sure you'll sleep well tonight--people with no scruples never feel pangs of remorse.

I'm really depressed because I don't have a lot of money, so I volunteer my time to help candidates. As a woman, I worked really hard for women candidates. I worked really hard for Vilma and she stabbed us in the back. Now Rose did the same thing. As a woman, I'm really ashamed because of this. Now I'm thinking why volunteer my time? They just use me and stab me in the back.

I wonder if this is just Vela's personal attack on Hinojosa: if she ran as a Democrat, she could only make his life tough for a little over two months, but as a Republican she can haunt him for eleven whole months.



Has anyone checked if there have been any recent judicial decisions where Hinojosa may have inspired such an odd-ball act of revenge from the Velas?


At 9:56 AM, Anonymous said...
ALL OF YOU NEED TO QUIT CRYING!Think of all the GOOD things she has done for you. Judge Vela has done an EXCELLENT job for all of us here in Nueces County. I think she will do great in the Court of Appeals! I am a strong democrat.....but she still gets my vote.


At 10:39 AM, GulfCoastLeftie said...
If you're voting for Tokyo Rose, you're NOT a strong Democrat. Call yourself conservative, liberal, mainstream, progressive, independent, whatever. Just don't call yourself a Democrat, or a Republican, for that matter.


At 11:00 AM, Tokyo Rose said...
Can you be a strong Democrat and still vote for Rose? That's a good question I cannot answer.



If Rose has switched parties, but if she will rule in a nonpartisan way, is what Rose has done worse that what Vilma did when she voted for the illegal DeLay-Craddick redistricting plan or what Jaime Capello did by betraying his constituents?



How do we measure Rose's disloyalty against Vilma's or Jaime's?



I knew Rose (or thought I knew Rose), and I have met the “Democrat” she is running against (he’s definitely a “Democrat” in the Vilma-Jaime mold). I cannot say that he's any more of a Democrat than she is. If there was ever a need for a viable third party candidate, this is the race.


At 12:20 PM, GulfCoastLeftie said...
Indeed, the constant dilemma of being in the big tent of the Democratic Party. Vilma may be a DINO, and I may rail about the fact no one runs against her; however, I would vote for her over any Republican, because she's with us half the time, better than 98% of the R legislators.



With a judge, it's a different story. I don't have much dealings with the legal system, so all I have to go by is what I would want should I appear before a judge--integrity and fairness. Sorry, but Tokyo Rose has just proven to me beyond a reasonable doubt that she'll sell out her friends for her career advancement. No question, at this point--I'll support Hinojosa. He could have done just what Tokyo Rose did. He could have waited until 5 minutes before the filing deadline and slapped his application down at the state Republican headquarters, and likely have faced NO opposition, no other Republican AND no Democrat filing against him. He didn't do that. To me, that demonstrates integrity, regardless of his DINO identity.

Rose Vela a Republicrat . . .

Posted on January 5, 2006 at 02:15:01 AM by Jaime Kenedeño



but is that not a positive for South Texas??



Remember we have Valley Democrats who ally with Mikal Watts.



Yellow Dogs or different breed?



Then we have the weakening "tire de la palanca democrática" of Solomon and Rene Rodriguez (that Tony "TWO FER" Canales chose to divide).



Thus we have a Valley Alliance that includes the "Yellow Dogs" and the Old Coat Tails of Dr Hector.



TWO FER allied with Mikal WATTS during the Firestone Litigation in Filemon Vela's Court. For Rose Vela to step to the Republican Label brings the disillusioned Democrat with her but she too must be disillusioned with a select faction of South Texas Democrat. This is a Mikal Watts trait. Finding the right intangible to liase with the Republican reasonable and therfore "alliable". A meeting of the minds his dollars can buy. Dont waste your money Mr WATTS. If you do then do it in a press conference and through the proper channels.



JUST BECAUSE YOU SUPPORT THEIR ELECTION CAMPAIGN DOES NOT MAKE THEM INDENTURED TO YOU AND YOUR AGENDA.



There are no ifs when you donate not before not after.



You support them because they have certain platforms. Not because they are going to win and you want to be able to tell them WATT to do.

“Tony the Two Fer” lyrics



(sung Two the tune of “Minnie The Moocha”)





Hey folks here's the story 'bout “Tony the Two Fer”

He was a lowdown hoochie “Two Fer”

He was the RUFFest Couthless Stale

But “Two Fer” had a heart as big as a snail



Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)

Hodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodeho)

Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)

Hidehidehideho (Hidehidehideho)





He messed around with a bloke named Jaime

He loathed him though he was no “LIME ee”

He looked him down from his uptown

and showed him how he “Twofored” his own around





Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)

Whoah (Whoah)

Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)

A hidehidehideho (Hidehidehideho)





He had a dream about Yturria’s king of Switzerland

He gave him things that He was stealin

He gave him a home built of gold and cotton

A diamond mine without a bottom





A hidehidehidehidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehidehidehidehi)

Hodehodehodehodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodehodehodehodeho)

... (...)

... (...)





He gave him his “Chicago Ranch” and his POLO horses

Each meal He ate was a dozen courses

Had millions of dollars worth of nickels and dimes

He sat around and counted them all millions of times





Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)

Hodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodeho)

Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ralph: "Yet an attorney can turn that phrase around to mean something entirely different."





So can I.



And very eloquently and convincingly; I might add.



The problem is when the "Legally Trained" deny, do not follow, break the rules and act like there is nothing wrong with their actions.



When a judge violates the due process because he can. When he violates a right of the individual or rules blatantly obtuse to the law. Most do not object. Most just go with the flow.



The system will take that path of least resistence everytime if you do not force them to respect your knowledge of the law AND your DUE DILIGENCE.



A recognized "Legally Trained" individual is recognized as "in the know" and has not to prove himself to not be violated legally.



Judges in Nueces County do what they want to do.



Who has got the "QUAN"?



Ole Tony has got those "nickels".



He sure did give a lot to Tony Sanchez and still lost Nueces County.

They sure have tried to keep it (the Law & Medicine) a secret.



Doctors & Lawyers both.



Now there is the internet.



Curmy: "Doctors gain their knowledge reading and then perfect the skill through guided practice"



As does the Attorney in the Courtroom but first in the Mock Trials.



I think it would be easier to learn to argue in the adversarial process than perform a tracheotomy.



Another comparison would be the Doctor's undernetworking with the Pharmaceutical Vendors, billing & overbilling, specialist referrals, and the behind the scenes "barterring" as such in the Judicial Process (Judiciary of Texas mainly Nueces, Cleburg & Kenedy).



Even in the Law ENFORCEMENT, ESPECIALLY ALONG THE CORRIDOR. This is where we need to address the Patriot Act and its misuse. Also the Ed Byrne (Fine Furniture) Grant used in Kingsville to exact personal vendettas. It is also the source of the Adversarial Agencies infighting and "playing dirty" to become a "Town Boss". Ernesto Solis benefits from all. Right Noel Pena, John Hubert & Yolanda Carmona?

become learned of a specific area of the law.



Say maybe a criminal act or CFR adherement, maybe Probate.



Myself, I enjoy the case law.



The court room etiquette or rules of decorum, the objections, the formalities in questioning and witness examination & cross examination are only learned from experience.



Also, sometimes a lay person can see a strategy or something a legally trained individual may be blind as he is too close.



And in Nueces County they LAWYER HERE LIKE NOWHERE ELSE.



We need to clean house and disbar.



Hell if they did it to Manuel Marroquin, Chris Mc Junkin, and Armando Benavides (all three disbarred) then why not Rene Rodriguez, John Hubert (Malicious Prosecutor), Tony "TWO FER" Canales (election violations), Shamsie (witnessed Capelo deal).



Mc Junkin is back in action. He is the attorney who offered me $20k for an Article titled, "Serpent in the Garden" written by James Pinkerton in the Houston Chronicle. It was about a pedophile Deacon (James Plaisted) at Parkdale Baptist Church. Plaisted worked with Horvat and they both worked with CCISD children. Tinker got him off. Someone paid for him to go to Boston and attend Law School; an FBI agent overheard him luring a child from Corpus Christi to Boston. He targeted single or divorced families. Then he would "help" the family with money & other things a fridge, washer, dryer, ac etc.....



He said, "If you can't find it (the Article);...... then your not that good"



Well we found the article.



He used it for himself not the kids.



Subsequently, Tx A&M Kingsville stopped carrying the Houston Chronicle. Even a requested inter library loan for all the A&M Libraries.



Denied.



That Blackball is a reality.



Who controls it?



Better yet who controls the "PROTECTION & PRIVACY" of the Elite who get "busted"?



Of course there is a "small fee" involved.
