i never thought id post on here or even give a minute to read comments, here i am. i think benavides is great. as any town. its the people who live in the town that make it what it is. all i see is misery. people commenting ugly, horrible things about one another and then showing up in church on sunday. nobody has any money to pay bills but you see them driving around all day, buying coach purses, the best cell phones (and their kids have 'em too)etc.....people care more about what they drive then what they live in. you can bet they dont miss payments on cell phones, computers, and so on but forget the important things like gas and water and electricity. if you think so much that the town needs a "change", do something. be a good citizen and get your kids off the couch and pick up trash off the streets, plant trees, get active. stop talking about everybody. god bless ALL of us.

if no one stole the money from Benavides, they shouldn't be any scared. Just let the IRS take care of it. When there done we the small town of Benavides will find out if anyone stole money or if that were just lies.

What money was stolen? What I see is that our water bill is too high. This is a very small town and if we don't start lowering our water bills our neighbors will be leaving for sure. Already as it is so many have left. But why not leave. There is not anything in this town to keep anyone here but our elderly parents. Its an hour and a half to and from Corpus. A total of 3 hrs. Then its an hour drive total to Alice. Then the little gas store is so high in prices. Why are we here? I am here because I believe the Lord led me here to live for a while. He knows me and knows I will speak up against what is wrong. A few months ago my water was shut off because of nonpayment. I am unemployed and was doing the best I could. I don't drive an expensive car and I don't have a cell phone. When I went to pay my water bill I was being charged for the month I didn't have service. What was I being billed for. They insisted that I pay the minimum which is about $54.50. But what am I paying for. I don't understand. I don't rent water or have a contract like a cell phone contract. Is this something like taxation without representation. Bill me for something I didn't buy
or use. I really do like the peace that I have living here. I know there's nothing to do but I like a small town life and just working in my garden. I like to sew and keep a clean house. I think small town people have a heart and are not cold and empty like some big city people are. Don't run me off.

Good luck to you, conserve your water limit your watering of your garden, oil up your sewing maching so that it runs perfectly all the time.

It's pretty sad how people can degrade one another. Benavides, is a small & poor town,but is something that has nothing to offer. When graduated I left & never returned. I was raised in poverty & I did not want my kids exposed to that lifestyle. Parents want their children to have better things and expose themselves to a great career, but how can one do that while living in the middle of nowhere? Mentioned above that people have the latest luxuries like phones & vehicles, but delay on paying the main bills. Haha so ironic & humiliating when you see them fashionable & showing off their stuff but yet many recieving government aid. It just upsets me how my hard earn tax dollars is to provide for lazy people who can work but will not!

I live in Benavides and no i don't talk bad about it or anyone in it. I mind my own business. It seems here everyone talks about everyone even if they don't even know a thing about you how quick they are to judge. I believe This town can be better if we all make it a point. There are many children here a good park for them will be great if we could all come together and help why would someone travel out to the county park when there's isn't much there also why did they do way with the activity's the programs so ill never see my kids in a Christmas program unless i moved i don't see that right.Every kid should experience those fun school activity's.

I love this little town,I bbq at least every friday. I don't need much just my family to enjoy the day. It's a peaceful little town! Every town has it's problems,and to me this little town is just good enough for me. What upset me the most is how all these elected officials get paid for working for the city even in congress and the senate. Think of their salary and health care but yet their cutting on education. If Mr. Lincoln or Mr. Washington would be alive and had the salary that Mr. Obamma has. What would they say! As for the city officials why do they have to get paid. If your here to help the town your services should be free!!
