Congratulations to the Falcons, the Clear Lake’s girls golf team that just won the 2007 UIL State Golf Championships.
Mamie Louis Payte, a former teacher whjo passed away recently (I think) left Alvin Community College half a million dollars. At least that’s what the Houston Chronicle reports. Wow!
A correction in the published rankings for Pasadena Independent School District resulted in an increase in the rankings themselves. According to the Houston Chronicle, “Out of 97 schools overall, Pasadena’s South Houston High jumped from No. 92 to No. 73. Pasadena High moved from 85 to 60, Dobie soared from 71 to 43 and Rayburn moved from 68 to 33.”
Galena Park ISD school board recently approved to renovate Woodland Acres Middle School.
Channelview ISD voters turned down a $125 million bond that would have funded a new elementary school and a junior high.
Pasadena City Council passed an ordinance that would make sex offenders to live no closer than 1,000 feet from any place where children gather. As reported by the Chronicle, “La Porte City Council in July passed an ordinance establishing a
1,000-foot safety zone for children. Other cities with such laws
include Alvin, Manvel, Pearland and Friendswood.”
