DISD Not Again?

Would someone please call Dr.Hinojosa and tell him to hire me to fix his trouble operations. What he needs is a professional manager to just fix stuff without needing more money. I can do it! I have been giving free advice to them so far but I am tired after seeing how much tax money they spend for bad results. The DMN says DISD is behind in criminal backgrounds checks on some new hires. How can you be behind on something that is required prior to being hired? Derrell Coleman staff attorney for DISD said per DMN that they were behind getting information from Safe Advantage the firm the District pays to do the background check. How can you be behind on information you pay to receive? Who submits the name and who is responsible for checking on the response? Here are a few simple steps to help the District and I am giving it for free. Procedure changes:

1. Transfer background check duty to DISD police department.
2.Cancel contract with Safe Advantage instead of increasing their contract by 152,000.
3.Contract with data base firm that provides information connect to DISD police computer.
4.Assign full time clerk to run check as employment application come into Human Resources.
5. Advise all applicants that their application will not be processed until background checks are complete. Have all applicants sign release of information form.
6.Advise all applicants that they can get their own background check from Texas Department of Public Service mailed to the District.
7.Furnish them with finger print cards to send to TDPS. District police
should have cards.
8.Once background information is in return complete fill to HR for hiring process.
The above items take no more money in fact it will save money and every applicant will be checked.The Police Department will be trusted with the
back ground check and there will be no hole in the screening process.
Every one should know that the hiring of Edward Randolph was no slip
in the process, they just did not follow the process because he was a former baseball star from Roosevelt High School. I hope the District can get it right soon.

Dear Mr. DA

The election is over, winner has been selected.
Dear Mr. DA please take your time and digest the duties of your office. Do not let men or woman who have not walked in your shoes direct your steps. As you change rolls from Defense Attorney into County Prosecutor you must change your way of thinking. You do not need a transition team as much as you need a trainer in managing your staff, budget,cases, and other areas of your Department. You need to spend your first 100 days getting to know what your office does. Walk around the buildings your staff are located in.You have a very good Civil section over at 411 Elm St. and in other County buildings. You need to be humble and learn the ropes before you do any thing about your staff. Your first Assistant should be chosen because I am sure Mr. Carnes is leaving.
You are not the leader of a gang now you are the Lead Dallas County Prosecutor for all the people of Dallas County. You must make sure that
all people get a fair trial from the DA's side of the Court room it is up to the Defense to defend. I hope you much success but you must take control of your self and your job. Take time and get your personal business in order so that will not haunt you every day of your office. Do not have another press conference until you have some thing to say. Many of the people who voted for you cannot go look at your Web site they do not have computers are can not use them. God be with you as you start this new journey because if you do your job correctly many in the Black community will become mad with you but that to will pass. Good luck Mr. DA. Feel free to tell the press you are busy .You do not need to be avaliable every time they call.

Ed Bradley What A Man!

Ed Bradley was a Man: A very good man and will be missed. He was professional and always in good spirit. I met Mr. Bradley in New Orleans some time ago and he was so down to earth. I will miss you.


I have in hand my new Tax statement: City tax $ 767.94. I get police, fire,library, street lights, parks, and etc. Seems reasonable. County,(SCH) and I do not know where that goes,College Dist,Hospital Dist. Combined $571.05. DISD $1,960.58 with the lowest homestead $36,164 everyone else is $42,328. All I get from DISD is more request for funding thief, waste, overpaid Administrative staff and miss education of some students. DISD has so many programs that the teaching staff can not keep up with them. I have called about a child who needed help the school staff did not have a clue, but I called Ross Ave. And they could call the role on all the famous programs .How good are these programs if the school and parents do not know about them. Why does DISD need so many programs? What do they accomplish? Where is the student benefit? What do they do with all the Money? When will other Tax payers become angry as I am and join me at their Board meeting and demand some answers?
If the Board wants bilingual education why are the English speaking students not being taught Spanish? Only Spanish speaking students will be bilingual.
I want the Superintendent to be successful but how can he until he cleans house on Ross Ave. I understand it takes time , but how much time? He
should know where the weakness is and it is money management. The DISD does not need money and it is time for the people who foot the bills to speak up.Please join me!

November 7,2006 The Day the Dam Broke:

When people said they were mad at President Bush, I did not know that everyone at Frank Crowley Court Building was name Bush. I have said over and over we need to find another way to Elect Judges. Some very fine Judges lost the bench Tuesday and the new ones do not even understand the Law that they will follow come January 3,2007. Some of them just put their names on the Ballot so it would not be easy for the Republican party, but oh what a Webb we weave. Justice in some Courts just went out the door and injustice walked in. Some think it's funny but wait until it's your time or your loved one's time to face a Judge that will allow the DA to do anything in his Court. I do not care who the DA is.Crieg Watkins cannot be in every Court room every day. So you got what you wanted Democrat in charge I just hope we have good legal minds in charge.

The County Judge seat is another story. She lost the Cowboys and was never a good leader. She followed the stars or moon or something.
