"Fatal" hit and run? No injuries reported? Do you guys have an editor?

We are season ticket holders for Tech home games. It is my opinion, since I was not one of the 4 persons interviewed Saturday at Raider Alley, the pre-game events have declined. When I first began going to the Tech games, Raider Alley was fun. Several food vendors, Red Raider fan product vendors, live music and the bounce house for kids provided a safe, fun pregame place to hang out. There was plenty of room for the pre-game "pep rally" with the cheerleaders, pom squad and Raider Red. In 2010 or 2011, I don't remember, the Raider Walk was added, which was apparently quite popular as well judging be the crowds that participated. In Saturday's opener we were very disappointed. No more live music, the number of vendors was greatly decreased, and due to the addition of the "beer garden" there was less room for the pep rally activities and no room for viewing. The new look that apparently "most" Raider fans favor, all though only a handful of participants were aired in your interview, was not/is not appealing to us. In addition to alcohol, we had the pleasure of smelling the distinctive odor of pot. Yeah, someone(s) was smoking out there as well, more than the usual. Adding beer to Raider Alley may be popular. Alcohol is always popular, especially in the college age group. It is sad to watch the hypocrisy presented by the powers that be. No one wants our citizens of any age to come to harm, yet we continually add venues and availability of substances, proven to have ill effects on our health,in a number of ways. I did a little research, unofficially and there were 415 alcohol-related car crashed in Lubbock last year. 296 of those involved persons between the ages of 18 and 25. (www.txdot.gov) Additionally, according to the CDC 1 in 10 adults age 20-64 die of alcohol related events. That outnumbers gun-related events. There have been tragic deaths already this season, related to alcohol. This is one Tech fan who cares and is NOT thrilled with the new.

It is a shame when the council has to confess, to the citizens, the substandard maintenance and unwillingness to comply with the codes that LPD code enforcement imposes upon the people. If it is not red tagged, then LPD code enforcement must be telling the city and the public that it is in full compliance with each and every code. Which is it? Is it a substandard building that should be condemned, and the manager of the corporate ownership fined, or is it Lubbock's finest representation of compliance of the laws and safety codes.

Gun owners, be aware Delwin Jones is an opponent of your gun rights. He was the only republican house member to vote against the concealed carry law in Texas and has opposed gun owners on other bills as well. Support your gun rights. Defeat Jones.

There are rumors that an institute of higher education is attached to the athletic fields. It is a university with a name of 3 words. However, the local media refuses to use the 3 words together, as if the elite are afraid of those who strive for excellence in education. For those who have never heard the name of the institute, it is called "Texas Tech University". It is not "Texas Tech Raiders", or "Texas Tech Athletics". I have a challenge for media employees brave enough to issue the truth. Use the full, proper name of every educational institute. Be it John Q Public Elementary School, Lubbock High School, South Plains College, or Texas Tech University. If it is too expensive for the media to print or broadcast the last name of institutes, then they can save even more money by leaving off the last names of local politicians and athletes. I don't care if schools have sports as a small "side dish". However, it appears that the schools in the Lubbock area have sports as the main course, receiving funding per capita in excess of campus average, and receiving publicity in excess of 100 fold for the student average. The movie "Idiocracy" was set 500 years in the future. However, it appears that today's print and broadcast media are virtually the same as in the movie.

Now the worshipers of football can have their holy communion with bread and alcohol, inside the temple. It is now complete. The stadium meets every definition of a church. It has those who pay their tithe, songs for their worship, fellowship, idols to praise, the holy team spirit, and now communion with beer and hot dogs.

How can you in good conscience place that poor girl that was killed by an LPD police officer in the same context as irresponsible college behavior?? The more that is reported, the more I am sure that the LPD is covering up an officer's reckless contribution in a young person's death. This is absolute proof that the media is no longer unbiased. From day one the headline in bold was LPD Officer Involved in Wreck. The mention that the other driver was barely clinging to life was just in the small print. Thank goodness for him that you are there to help with his public image before the grand jury. I bet you are all very pleased that the other driver can't speak her side of the story.

Although the one who the cop killed, is just as dead, there is NO Cornell Avenue in Lubbock TX. There is a Cornell Street that has a 2600 block. It would be nice if LPD would put the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, in their reports to the courts, and to the public. If their reports have errors in the locations of events, I wonder about their truthfulness in other details as well. I hope there are others out there that hold "Lubbock's Finest" to the highest standard of truth, and subsequently demand the removal of those who are unwilling or unable to comply.
