I am Jacob Flores, a Boy Scout with Troop 20. Personally, I would like to show my gratitude towards the Heights community and the surrounding neighborhoods. Heights residents who have seen what we have done are very grateful. We have had a project and the entire time residents would approach us and say “Thank you very much!” Our troop is glad we can make a difference. I am looking forward to doing my project as well. There once was a resident that brought us water and others that asked if they could make donations. I am confident I will get the same support too. I would like for our troop to continue to do great things in the future and for us, upcoming scouts, will keep the legacy going. There have been times when the neighborhood associations have made donations toward Eagle projects without hesitation. The scouts would like to think the completed Eagle projects will be around for many years to come. It is our hope we can keep improving our neighborhoods. Our Troop is very grateful we can express how we feel about helping. Your continued support is appreciated.

Reader shares same sentiments on Complete Communities
I thoroughly enjoyed your thoughtful and deliberative piece on the Mayor’s Complete Communities initiative. I have some of the same sentiments and am confident that the Mayor’s office will start to address our concerns.
Thanks for all you do.

Thank you Trustee Eastman for explaining this issue while also pointing out the problems with our current school funding system in Texas. I think the lack of equalizing weight and corresponding funding for English learners, low income, and at-risk students is the elephant in the room that is confusing voters and confounding the issue today. Thank you for informing us that these weights have not been revised in 30 years. I’d like to learn more about the current weighting system. I am also wondering which, if any, of our representatives at the state level are currently addressing this problem.
Almost all good things must be traded in
As aggravating as new tech sometimes is, in time you will learn to love your “tank” because of all the new memories you and your family will build. Although I’m perfectly capable and in fact own two “old school” cars (no nav; barely power windows…), over the past 3 years I’ve grown to love the front radar system and blind spot detection on my new car.
