Way to go Jesse for keeping the Waltrip Band in success mode. I felt that Nate always benefited by being part of the band program. He participated in both band and sports which I always supported, but eventually he did have to decide which one, but the good habits had been formed by that time. As a parent, I was always impressed by the support groups and always felt included. I still have my Band Mom pin and even during games would sit with our band parent friends.
Nate went through UT and went on to St. Mary’s Law, but nothing beats those Waltrip Band parent days! Thank you Jesse for being there for our kids, from then until now! I do remember that you were there for the kids! Congratulations on your successes and carrying forward for Charlie and yourself!
Critical Mass becoming a nuisance for area
Police start to direct traffic after they are called by car drivers who are sick of watching people break the law. Or, were called along with an ambulance by me after a bike rider started show boating and popping wheelies in a circle in the middle of an intersection and ended up losing control and falling on their face and not moving while his buddy riders just left him there as they kept riding by not noticing him because they were calling drivers ugly names. They c alled me an ugly name as I was on the phone with 911 trying to get their “fellow activist” help. I sat and watched about 20 riders dodge him and keep going. I can only guess they didn’t want to be there when police showed up because they had open alcohol on them… Not all but some were holding beers. Way to be supportive of other bike riders and teach car drivers to respect them…. That is rich, blame the car drivers for not following the laws but then support bikers not following the law. You can’t pick and choose what laws to follow just because it fits your thought process or belief system this month.
