Letters to the Editor 07/01/15

Response to home invasions (from FortBendStar.com) With South Asians being primary targets for these kinds of robberies, there should be more patrolling done to keep the neighborhoods safer. Random people coming up to the homes to “sell” something are only using that as a cover to see who is home and who is not and […]

Letter to the Editor 06/17/15

I am, once again, sick at my stomach after trying to protest my real estate taxes in Fort Bend. I just purchased a home in a one street neighborhood.  All but one of the homes in on about the same sized lot. All have similar quality of construction, even though the square footages differ. But, […]

The issues surrounding Texas’ defective property tax system reached a watershed moment in the City of Austin when the city recently challenged the appraisal district’s commercial property valuations. An analysis of the Travis County Central Appraisal District’s commercial property valuations from 2012 through 2015 shows some startling undervaluation of commercial property by TCAD. The analysis […]

Proposed Sugar Land Neighborhood Wal-Mart reaction (from fortbendstar.com) My opinion on the building of a walmart in our neighborhood is, it would be very beneficial to the community by having grocery store within walking distance. The traffic will be a nuisance going down eldridge but it cant be too bad. The addition of a gas […]

“Thank you for Lynn Ashby”

Dear Michael, I used to read the Ft. Bend Star religiously many years ago when “Juanita Jean” and Bev wrote their hilarious columns.  Oh, how many times I have laughed at stories about “hot tub Tom”.  You see, these were articles that were true, but written with humor because most Sugar Land residents could not […]

Stafford fails test of Democracy in 2015 Those of us who love Stafford and want to serve to advance unity and understanding of the issues have a responsibility to call to task the unethical behavior and offensive racial pandering that was prevalent in the recent City of Stafford and SMSD elections. It is time for […]

Reaction to Ashby Column

I just received my copy of The Star today. It was quite refreshing to see that there was not a stupid, silly article by Lynn Ashby, making fun of Texas. If this guy is so against this state, I think he needs to pack his bags, drive through Houston, gather up a few liberal journalists […]

Addressing issues in Richmond…

Very sad to say that the City of Richmond and its building department officials are extremely hostile to small time construction people like myself. We have a small business and started construction at 2201 Thompson Rd. Richmond Texas, a small strip shopping place. After so much struggle with the city and spending so many thousands […]

Response to April 22 Sudhalter Column…

Editor: I appreciate your encouragement of dialogue and input into the current status of community affairs in Fort Bend County.  This area is rich in its heritage of decisive men and women who initiated positive change rather than following whatever the flavor of the day happened to be.  And we need to remember that America […]

Letter to the Editor: Local control requires local leadership

Star Logo-4C

Many Texas school districts, including Fort Bend ISD, have abused the discretion that the Texas legislature granted them. Such perceived abuse of discretion is largely why the issue of decriminalizing Truancy in the State of Texas is a major issue in the current legislative session. How a local school district designs and implements a Truancy […]
