Madeline McClure: Texans can do more to prevent child deaths by neglect

Madeline McClure: Texans can do more to prevent child deaths by neglect

(By Madeline McClure) Texans read the headlines — yet again — about a child suffering a horrible death. But the toddler’s death wasn’t due to foreign terrorists, nor from a domestic lone wolf who too easily obtained a gun. Nineteen-month-old J’Zyra Thompson’s assassin was from her own family: She was placed in an oven and […]

John White: Why I’m voting No against the $257 million RISD Bond Referendum

(By John White) A bond committee deemed absolutely everything ‘essential’, so everything the district needs and wants was rolled into one solitary bond election, as the district did in 2007. We voted against two propositions in the 2006 bond election, but those were items not truly essential but desirable to foster Rockwall ISD as a […]
