We are currently engaged in a high-profile negotiation that may or may not succeed in getting the Chinese to buy more of our stuff.
This week we wrap up another great school year for the Salado Independent School District. The following are the remaining events for this school year:
To the Editor and my Salado Friends:
I have been honored to serve as one of your Alderman for four years. As many of you know, I decided not to run for office again so that I could focus on my family.
In the second century A.D., Jewish rebels who had stunned the Romans and liberated a portion of Judea overstruck imperial coins with images and a message of their own, “Year One of the Redemption of Jerusalem.”
Congratulations to Salado High School eleventh grade student Zack Shaver and Salado High School science teacher Katy Leiskau for being recognized by Congressman John R. ‘Judge’ Carter from our Texas Congressional District 31. Zack was recognized as a “Carter A-Lister” and Katy Leiskau was recognized as a Carter Educator.
The stock market continued to drift, this time to the downside, as the S&P 500 Stock Index (SPX) lost 0.54 percentage for the week, ending on the 18th at 2712.97.
Our favorite stock index, the venerable Standard and Poor’s 500 (SPX) turned in a respectable gain for the week ending May 11, gaining 2.41 percent to end at the memorable number of 2727.72, demonstrating an economy in numeric usage that is almost elegant. More valuable was the fact that it is now up 2.02 percent year-to-date and 14.09 percent from this time last year.
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!”
