From its early days educating teachers in Old Main as Southwest Texas State Teachers College, San Marcos is recognized as a center for educational excellence. How inspiring this week for me to see all those who make San Marcos public schools a success. The High School Performing Arts Center was full of enthusiasm as we kicked off the new school year. Good parents can give their children roots and wings, but it is our schools that enable our children to reach higher and achieve more. An important foundation for our future is being built right here in San Marcos.
Is the city of San Marcos willing to rise to the Challenge in Restoring Cape’s Dam?
With all the discussion about Cape’s Dam and the surrounding areas, there is a question I keep asking myself!
Is the city of San Marcos capable of rising to the challenge in creating a vision, a master plan for the Cape’s Dam, Stokes Park, the mill race and the surrounding areas?
I am not a supporter of John Thomaides, but my experience with him has been very different from that alleged in a ltter published on Aug. 14.
I emailed Mr. Thomaides at his City Council address on a Sunday several months ago. The subject was not urgent and in fact could have been construed by Mr. Thomaides as somewhat negative towards him. I was surprised to receive a reply about an hour later. I responded and received another prompt reply. Both replies from Mr. Thomaides were responsive, courteous and professional.
I refer to the well-written article by Jennifer Fischer which appeared on the Opinion page of the Record on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
Ms. Fischer makes a strong case against the proposed location of the H-E-B store at the intersection of Wonder World Drive and Hunter Road.
I was out of town during the early part of the discussion and have only heard negative responses regarding the city’s approval of the project. Ms. Fischer’s fine piece presents a strong case against the project with ample sound reasoning and logic.
