Editor:

On Oct. 21 I was treated to a 400-yard oil-field convoy from Nixon all the way to Floresville. Two huge chunks of drilling rig and a bunch of flatbed rigs end-to-end driving 30 mph. It took an hour to get to Floresville! When we got to the two-lane section of S.H. 97 in Stockdale, did they pull to the right and let the 200 cars stuck behind them by? No, they actually sped up to 50 mph and drove down the middle of the lanes to keep anyone from passing and then slowed back down to 30 mph afterwards. They had reckless disregard for any community caught in their path. . . .

Have you ever thought about running as a candidate for a Neighborhood Owners Association board. You would make an ideal chairman.
