Roundup: Election Brings Changes and More Questions in Dallas

The May 7 election created as more questions about the future direction of the Dallas city council, Wilmer Hutchins Independent School District and the Dallas Council District 8.

I recently heard President Bush’s job approval ratings were at their all time low. While, this may come as a surprise to some, for this journalist, it’s a case of “we told you so.” I am talking about those opposed to Bush’s lying to the American people about the reasons for America going to war in Iraq, when saying “we.” I am also talking about the “we” who voted against him when seeing through his other flawed policies. Bush’s inept, bungling leadership has put his backers in the unenviable position of doing damage control for his image.

 

Black Colleges Focus on Streets to Lure Fort Worth Students to Education

Wanting to take a bite out of high school drop out rates and steer more Fort Worth youth from the streets to the classroom, several historically Black college representatives stepped up and devoted time and energy in an attempt to stimulate young minds to consider going to college.
“Education valuable for our young people,” said Dollie Pankey, a Fort Worth educator who represented Grambling University at the education fair held at Inspiring Temple of Praise Church in Fort Worth. “These kids need to understand that the less education you have, the fewer the opportunities for finding decent employment and good pay.”

"We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts."
