SLOW DAY, JUST SOME UPDATES AND NEWS SUMMARIES

VA CLINIC HARLINGEN

This place gets better by the day. It has taken some time for them to get the clerks trained, but they appear to finally have the situation under control and excellence is all I can say about the entire operation. I do not understand why the VA San Antonio cannot strive for the same level of excellence.

I was there yesterday after seeing a local colorectal surgeon. Even though we are authorized to see local specialists, if they order any procedures, tests, or medicines everything has to go through the VA clinic in Harlingen. The clerks were awesome. I gave them the order from the specialist and within minutes the clerks processed the request for approval of the procedure at Valley Baptist - Brownsville. My VA doctor was made aware of request and approved the preop testing to be done at the VA clinic. Now it is in the hands of the VA in San Antonio where the final approval is made for payment. In the time it took for the clerks to do their part, the pharmacy had the prescription ready.

A NEW WEB PAGE FOR TEA PARTY

They have asked that I create a permanent link for them, but I do not do this for any other political organization. But I will post a note to my readers for several days so that people who are interested can click over.

COB - FIXING HOMES

If you know anyone who is low income, the COB has funding to help these people put insulation in the home to help lower their utility bills. It is my understanding the COB is in the process of creating an informational web page to help put out the word about this program.

SORRY CHARLIE ATKINSON - MURDER

The story is just too bizarre. Something is profoundly wrong. Unfortunately it will take years to clean up the mess created under the Bush Administration. Once administrators learned that the Bush Administration would cover for abusive conduct by administrators it became a learned behavior by the worse administrators. This type abusive use of investigations is being used all over the US, it will only stop when a court awards a large judgment to one of the victims.

Has anyone else asked?

As for Atkinson, the only murder I remember involving a Brownsville teacher and fleeing across happened in 2005 or 2006. Do you remember that one? The muderer said his wife was missing in Matamoros, but it didn't work out that way. He killed her and took her across the border. Is it possible they were investigating that one?
