This box of Christmas light clips was actually $.13 more last year, while being made in the U.S.  More and more especially when it comes to plastics, Walmart is selling Made in the U.S.  How?  Robotics.

Govenor Abbott along with local legislators committed to a new work force training center on IH 69, which will include robotics training.  Be patient people, the Brownsville boom is coming.  Our airport is set for a 10,000 linear foot runway, our port is being deepened, Space X is getting closer and closer to its first launch.

I realize to the naysays, [I do not deny I opposed Space X, but we lost that battle, and now is the time to turn it into the best we can for our benefit] they can only see how many locals will be hired by Space X, but it does not stop there.  Small businesses will do well with each launch as out of towners eat local, rent cars which include increased tax revenues for the city on car rentals and hotels.  

2017, will be a hard year Internationally, nationally, and and even locally for our city commission, but for the people of Brownsville they will begin to see the turn around and be happy.


Our local legislators are notoriously short sighted.  They have tunnel vision on their clients - the medical and insurance industry and cannot see outside that box.  They are the epitome of silo politics.

"The federal government has cut payments to 769 hospitals with high rates of patient injuries, for the first time counting the spread of antibiotic-resistant germs in assessing penalties."

The Hemp lobby is ready for this legislative session.  The cosigners of the Bill are bipartisan.  Hidalgo county has issued its support for the legislation.  Cameron County Commissioners Court seems oblivious to what is happening from Lubbock to Hidalgo county.

Our local legislators need to get on board,  The growing of Hemp in the LRGV will mean manufacturing jobs.  Our local legislators can push for fabric which can be used in hospitals to bring down infections. This helps their true clients.  It is time to think outside your silo boxes Oliveira and Lucios./
