Letter to the Editor

To the editor: Your recent story about Fort Bend Deputies on paid vacation had an incorrect headline. This was not a repossession, it was a theft. There is no reason to pay deputies who committed a theft. Taxpayers deserve better. Michael Lee

Letter to the Editor 12/10/14

Recently Scott McClelland, Chair of the Greater Houston Partnership’s Education Advisory Committee and President of the Houston Division of HEB, and Jim Postl Greater Houston Partnership Board Member, made a presentation to school board trustees who collectively represent 1.1 million students residing within the greater Houston metropolitan area at the Region 4 Education Center. Their […]

Letters to the Editor

The Fort Bend academy program (The Opinion – Academies are here to stay, but compromise is necessary, pg 3, November 19, 2014) is a wonderful opportunity for the academy’s high school participants.  I’m all in favor of providing such an opportunity to the deserving high-achieving students.  Unfortunately, the academy process appears to penalize non-academy students […]

Letter to the Editor

I’m afraid your suggestion “How about including an option to use headphones? You could click on a candidate’s photo. They would introduce themselves to you in a 30-second segment … ” would constitute electioneering within 100’ of the polling place, a violation of state law. This doesn’t even consider the fact that it would make […]

Letter to the Editor

Dear Fort Bend Star Editor: I wanted to follow up to your recent commentary “The Importance of the FBISD Bond Election”. I appreciate you taking the time to research the issue and applaud you using the Fort Bend Star in a responsible manner to highlight the importance of this bond referendum to our community. I […]

Help Fort Bend ISD Plan for the Future

As a public school district, Fort Bend ISD is dependent upon the active collaboration of our parents and community as the administration and Board of Trustees consider decisions that will impact schools and the overall district. Right now, the District is busy communicating information about the November 4, 2014 Bond Election, and the administration has […]

Ferguson, Why it wouldn’t happen here

Last Thursday I attended a meeting at the Sugar Land Police Department, which included Chief Brinkley, Assistant Chiefs, Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants, Patrol Officers, members of the Community Assistance Support Team and Citizens Police Academy Alumni, but most critical to avoiding a Ferguson type event, were the almost 50 citizens of Sugar Land in the room. […]

Proposed bond isn’t specific about Career/Tech

Star Logo-4C

I’d absolutely need specifics. It’s odd to me that they would hire at least two consultants to advise on overcrowding issues while delaying the start of ES 46 but want to allocate the 59.4 million for HB5 for the ‘unknown’ costs. As a parent; why would I support this because so far trusting in FBISD […]

Letter to McElvy

Mr. McElvy, I’m familiar with your work at the Heights paper because I worked over there awhile back. I look forward to a similar focus on news items in Fort Bend County and in particular the emphasis on crime and related issues.  We all benefit when government is reported on fairly and accurately, which you […]

Arming Teachers? Let’s Find a Middle Ground Solution, From Facebook

Dear Editor, Two issues with your article. I believe in Occam’s Razor. You touched on it at the end of your article with the concept of “marshall” who’s identity is unknown except to administration. I agree that 40 hours of training is insufficient. However, I also disagree that 6 months is hardly necessary. The teacher […]
