Corpus Christi is mulling over a ban of retail plastic bags. Less choices means less jobs. Can’t you people see that? You’re killing the Texas economy. Visit MyFoxHouston for more.
Good Teaching Finally Backfires
The kids have become sentient in Tivoli, TX. Picking up on a vocabulary word, they’ve staged an uprising, and finally it isn’t about dress codes, hair color or other nonsense… This time it’s personal. This time it’s about cafeteria food. The lunch lady doesn’t know what you young whippersnappers are talking about. Every day is a day for sloppy joes. Visit Click2Houston for more.
