I haven't ever commented on the forums or blogs. I prefer to stay out of the infighting. I've got 4 kids in Floresville High School. 3 in the ROTC program. I personally don't understand why they created a separate mascot for... More ›

Franklin, Did your daughters ever ask you why they can't be called boys? That's how stupid politically correctness has gotten to be!

Sam Eagle..Yes, but Pirettes are a form or Pirates, not a completely different form, like Tigers and Jaguars. ....Bob.. That sounds a bit like the pot calling the kettle black don't you think?..I have 3 girls in the district... More ›

Franklin, Don't you have better things to do with your life than constantly gripe and whine about every post on this site? You never, on your own, write an opinion or information piece! Good grief. Go fishin' and get drunk.... More ›
