Student says bus service not fair to all – FBISD should help all kids get to school

Dear Fort Bend Star, I am writing because I am concerned about the new Fort Bend ISD Academy bus program for 2014-2015.  Many kids live within walking distance of an elementary school and will not be affected, but many other kids (like me) no longer have the ability to attend an academy because there is […]

Captain Van responds to last week’s Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Three letters on red light cameras (RLCs) in last week’s issue deserve a response.  The flawed legislation which authorizes RLCs prohibits the evidence from being used for anything else but issuing notices of violation.   It is silly but true that using the photos to establish fault in an accident is prohibited.
