How encouraging it is to see some of RISD's trustees assisting with local church functions. A person that offers to enter into any service of his own free will is much appreciated in today's world. Unfortunately, many are incapable of volunteering, especially without compensation due to some sort of ”what's-in-it-for-me attitude."

It is absurd to think that these trustees do not have our children's interest at heart. Many individuals turn to God for guidance, strength, and truth. Sacrifice is expected? Do not forget that Jesus Christ sacrificed his life for us all. We should concentrate on being servants of God through his will.

There is no doubt that (Rosendo) Espinoza and Victor and Eva Orona are fulfilling their responsibilities to our children. It would be awesome if other "dedicated members" of the board "dedicated" themselves to godly matters such as them.

We must learn to forgive and act in his image and likeness. God has a plan and a purpose for us all. Ask yourself, "who comes first in your life?" May God bless all volunteers and all members of the school board. May he help guide them to truth.

Congratulations Robstown on 100 years

What a wonderful Centennial celebration. Thanks to the city of Robstown, various committees of planners and the citizens of Robstown for a great celebration with many well-planned activities.

The high school administration, teachers, coaches, parents, and students should be commended for the game on Friday night. It was a memorable experience to be back in Picker stadium (a new and vastly-improved version) and see the spirit of a well-behaved and disciplined student body. An exciting Cottonpicker victory added to the fun, of course.

The reception at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds and the coffee on Saturday morning were both lovely affairs. To have an opportunity and a place to meet and greet people that I had not seen in 50 years was a treat.

Another special treat was being at the dedication of the Robstown Memorial Historical Museum - what an asset for the city. I can't wait to see the end result.

Robstown, you outdid yourself. May your next 100 years be even more prosperous. Thanks again for making the Centennial celebration an event to remember and savor.
