Rod Rosenstein is doing a star turn as principled defender of the law, but he’s performed abysmally as deputy attorney general, and President Donald Trump would be fully justified in firing him.
Thank you to Rodney Bell and Melanie Kirchmeier for their years of service to our students, school district, and community as school board members. Rodney served for ten years (from 2008 through 2018) and Melanie served for six years (from 2012 through 2018). Their leadership and support have contributed to a lot of the many successes that our students and our school district have accomplished during those years.
Who would have guessed that a Trump crowd 15 months into his presidency would be chanting, “Nobel! Nobel! Nobel!”
Despite, or maybe, because of the good economic and earnings news during the week, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) declined another 0.24 percent to close 2663.42.
On behalf of the Salado Independent School District, I want to thank our community for demonstrating its support of our students, staff and schools by approving the Salado ISD Bond Election.
To the Editor:
Our whole Village should be so grateful for the leadership that Skip Blancett has provided through his many years of service as our Mayor.
There are two Municipalities under which property owners of Salado are subjected to: 1) Bell County Municipal Government and 2) Village of Salado Municipal Government
I am currently a non-resident, but both a commercial and residential property owner for the past 15 years in the Village of Salado. My wife and I have raised our three children…set them free….and are now focused on ourselves and our future.
To the Editor:
TRUTH is a rare occurrence in politics; however, the citizens of the Village of Salado have the opportunity to elect someone who will tell you the truth. At the candidate forum last week, Linda Reynolds spoke the truth about whether the roads would be repaired after the work is done. McLean Construction bid was 2 million lower than the others. Now we know why. Danny McCort looked the bid over and Don Ferguson, City Manager, agreed that the contractor has NO responsibility for repair of roads when work is done. Our current mayor clouded the waters by stating the sewer contractor would fix part of the road and the Village of Salado would fix the other part. The Village will purchase the material and Bell County will furnish the labor to fix the roads. Shouldn’t that have been part of the sewer contract?
We need a balance in representation and leadership in our Board of Alderman. After the candidate forum, it was clear which candidates could provide those qualities.
I urge everyone who is eligible to vote in the Village election to seriously consider voting for the candidates who will be truthful and transparent in their service to the Village.

To the Editor:
I’m glad the issue of transparency has been raised by most the non-incumbent candidates for mayor/alderman. Under the current administration so many decisions have been arrived at secretly with undisclosed conflicts of interest.
