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

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 […]

From A Call to Action

Dear Editor, Please follow up on this overcrowding problem. My grandson was put on the wrong bus today. We waited at the bus stop 30 minutes past the scheduled time. When the bus came, my grandson was not on it. We immediately headed to the school. When we arrived, we were not the only people […]

This is excellent!

I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am that the Star is running Lynn Ashby. He was one of the main reasons that I kept a subscription to the old Houston Post nigh on to 40 years ago. This is a great addition, and adds measurable heft to the Star’s profile. Best regards, […]

The Star’s new look

Last week, your new editor, Mr. Sudhalter, asked for community input about the direction we’d like to see the paper take in the future. First, I am delighted with the addition of a sports section and look forward to following our local teams. Did we have a little league team that came close to making […]
