i think all it would take to fix Fal is a little more discipline towards the kids. and not treating baseball like if it was more important than anything else in this town.

What it takes to fix Falfurrias. Parents need to take care on there own kids to not get involve in drugs.We are in the center of all drug trading.Parents report anyone involved selling drugs.We all know who they are selling drugs. The PD and the new sheirff needs to put them away. This people have been dealing with drugs for years Justo and sons,Bobby B and family,Tony and brother,Big Rick,Joe G and nephew that lives going toward Riveria.Politicans that need to help the county get out of the Red Tony, Gloria, Aravelo are a joke. We need people that do not do it for personal gain and vote getting.A judge that does not allow a tax increase to cover this hiring . The JP do not need more help when they dont do there job. Lolie, Cabrrea, Rudy. We also need to get rid of all constable Joe G. Pipo,Tony V. All they want is more votes.

Here we go again. If your going to accuse people by name use your real name. Do not be a hypocrite and hide behind a false name. Your just another hater who likes to hate on people and 90 percent of the time are accusing people on heresay. Have you bought drugs from the people you mentioned? If you haven't then how can you accuse people by name? If you think the JP's don't do their job why don't you run? Use your real name coward...

How about other people who deal drugs? We need to hear positive things to better our community.Homer GET A LIFE... I agree with Olivia. If your going to accuse by real names use your real name.LETS GET POSITIVE..

The only way to fix Falfurrias is to stop bickering amongst ourselves over petty arguments and get to the job of doing something that benefits all of us for example, put pressure on our City Council and Commissioner's court to build something like a swimming pool for our kids so that we can keep them busy and out of trouble. We need to get them to develop an economic development plan that like it or not includes the Chamber of Commerce to bring back some of the major companies that have left us i.e. Halliburton - Otis, Schlumberg etc. and maybe get some housing developers to build for the growing Border Patrol presence instead of having these agents live in Kingsville and Alice that would help our local economy by increasing the local sales and for some increasing our enrollment in our local schools. That might make it easier to open a hospital and attract Doctors to the area which would help to get us better health care in our area instead of having to drive miles away for something that is a big necessity for all of us. Most of all, we need to get out and vote to put people who are movers and shakers in our local government entities and not knock them because they have been adulterers or have had run ins with the law, if they have paid their debt to society and it was a mistake not continued, then let it go! We ALL make mistakes, we aren't GOD, we are NOT PERFECT!

The city if Falfurrias has become like a Ghost town filled with so many DELAPITATED homes ready to fall down anytime. I just retired and had my hopes up to come back to my town that I grew up but as soon as you drive by Mejiquito the plight of old homes ready be torn down begins. A very ugly UNAPPEALING SIGHT not to mention the over grown grass that covers just about every abandoned home !!!!!!!!! If these people are gone or dead why haven’t their relatives done something about these ugly homes. WOULD THEY LIKE TO LIVE NEXT TO ONE OF THESE HOMES !!!!!!!!! Please begin with THIS and then move on to the CRIME, DRUGS, AND YOUNG ADULTS THAT ARE GETTING INTO TROUBLE.

Mejiqiuito Por Vida. This is where I do not agree with you, even thou it needs to be done.The drugs is what is causing this problem. They are so into drugs they will not pay the taxes. They would rather buy drugs.The crime has put some of the family members in prison and have abandent their houses for lack of jobs in Fal. Our younger youth are so into drugs that they do not care about Falfurrias. We need to get rid of this old and new drug dealers in Falfurrias first. The cops and sheriff know who they are.

I agree with The Fix 110%. The reason that people turn to drugs is because Falfurrias doesn't have much to offer the citizens of this community and that includes good paying jobs, health care and things for our youth. Without jobs, people will move from town to look for work else where and without health care, they take their families with them and without activities for their kids, they move to places to advance their education and to give their families the best of everything. Here in Falfurrias, a lot of the citizens have no choice but to stay because a large part of the residents live way below the poverty level and they aren't getting a good education but it starts with our youth, getting them motivated to do something other than get into trouble or drugs. If they aspire to a higher standard of living and they have pride in themselves, they project that pride and standard to their families, their neighbors and their neighborhoods and that makes for a great community. Good job Mr. Fix!

Hey how do you all think that you all are ever going to fix Falfungus if all the "topix" are about who is the biggest slut and who is crazy! What is wrong with you people? Mr. Fix has the right idea but look how many hits he got on his comment. Doesn't anyone have anymore positive ideas to add to the Fix? But then look at all the hits on the negative "topix"? They are coming from within your city. How can you all expect to fix what is wrong when what is wrong is your citizens? Or maybe it is all the drugs that you all use? LOL

I think Fal is perfect the way it is. It's the last frontier; lawlessness and injustice abide here, and for some people, that's comforting(lol). I also think that people are satisfied with the current state of affairs because it keeps the town lively, kind of like a soap opera. Just think if all the problems got fixed, nobody in town would have anyting to gossip about! I say leave the town the way it is. Not EVERY town in the USA has to be perfect, or "fixed". You can't deny the town does have character, and that's is something money can't buy! For those that don't agree, there's always Premont :)
