Since the schools don't appear to enforce student traffic safety, I wonder if the local stations will broadcast EI programs that promote safety around schools and elsewhere.

The mayor could barely open his eyes. His face shows a critically low state of life. Unless God sends another messenger of peace that will allow him to live, or he begs for the previous one to intervene, he doesn't appear to be long for this world.

When are the schools going to teach their students that jaywalking is very dangerous. School staff should also lead by example.

It is often assumed that it is illegal to keep chickens within the City limits. However, that is not so. There is no City ordinance to prevent someone from keeping chickens, as long as they are not a nuisance. Apparently, Mr. Walker is not familiar the City ordinances which he enforces. So, here is some information that may be helpful to resolve this issue. From the Code of Ordinances from the City of Lubbock City Secretary's website: http://z2codes.franklinlegal.net/franklin/Z2Browser2.html?showset=lubbockset Chapter 4 - Animals Definitions - Livestock - Includes, regardless of age, sex or breed, horses, consisting of all equine species including mules, donkeys, and jackasses; cows, consisting of all bovine species; sheep, consisting of all ovine species; llamas or alpacas; goats, consisting of all caprine species; and pigs, consisting of all swine species. "Farm Animal" (the term used by Director Walker) is not defined in the City ordinances. Pet animal - Any animal that may be kept as a pet within the city so long as all of the required provisions of this chapter are met, and is not a dangerous wild animal or a wild animal, including but not limited to the following animals: (2) Birds: any birds commonly kept as pets that are not protected from ownership by any state or federal law, or any bird kept for falconry purposes by a state and federally permitted falconer; Sec. 4.07.001 Keeping of other animals; nuisance conditions (b) The keeping or causing to be kept any livestock, chickens, geese, ducks, guineas, pigeons, rabbits or any other such animals in those areas appropriately permitted by the zoning ordinances of the city in pens or enclosed areas in such a manner as to become offensive to other persons living nearby is hereby declared to be a nuisance. So, keep your chickens and have a Merry Christmas.

Right on, Shark. These nanny state laws always start the same way... with something that is a good personal policy but that does not make a good public policy. Should you smoke tobacco? No. Should it be against the law to do so? No. Same with texting or talking while driving. Pure nanny state! If we don't stop it, Lubbock will become like Austin or NY. Next thing you know, you'll be thrown to the ground and choked to death for having too many cigarettes in your hand which is what happened to Eric Garner in NYC. "I can't text" can easily turn into "I can't breath." Nip it in the bud, Lubbock! Your policies are already correct.

I just called the Lubbock City Council and am told that there is no such item on their agenda for the upcoming meeting on 12/18/14 and that the 1/8/15 agenda is not out yet. Did they cancel or will it be sneaked in at the last minute?? What's going on?

The city already banned civilian cell phone use in school zones while the yellow lights are flashing. Why don't they ban ALL communication devices, including their own radios, and texting devices, before imposing restrictions on the public that that city enforcers never obey themselves.

When politicians quit pumping from the aquifer for useless golf courses, they will lead by example, and others will lower their consumption as well.

SCOTUS should allow the battle flag license plates. Its an equal protection Fourteenth Amendment issue where all groups should be treated equally. If the state allows any group specific plates, then it is wrong and unconstitutional to not allow, and to discriminate against the SCV plates.The battle flag is a symbol of heritage to us SCV, not hate or racism. Those who disagree are entitled to their own opinions but not their own set of facts.More racist activities have been conducted under the "Stars and Stripes" banner than were ever conducted under the CBF.Examples, the KKK marches on Wash. DC in the 1920s( google the photos) where all the Klansmen were carrying American flags. All the American slave ships flew the Stars and Stripes, not any Confederate flags. Those people who shout racism should educate themselves first.Ignorance is not bliss.
