I will be interested to see what you will be requesting, and how you are responded to by the government entities that you are making these requests. To date, I have been fortunate enough to be received somewhat decently when I requested and picked up my records from the City of Huntington. Thank you for starting this new thread, I look forward to your posts.

It sounds like you are getting the 'run around' on your records request. I base this on the fact that other public entities that you have requested records from were forthcoming and kept in contact with you in an appropriate manner to make sure you received the records you were asking for. I hope you are able to gain access to the records you have asked for from the City of Huntington, it could prove to be an interesting read.

There should be a way to put your pompous ass in jail.

96% of these requests you are making serve no valid purpose other than to stoke your inflated ego and to cost us taxpayers extra money.

I urge our law enforcement and legislatures to do every thing possible to curtail David Stua's activities on any record requests that doesn't affect him personally.

Diddly, when you start putting limits on the amount of information that can be requested you start allowing the taxpayers to remain in the dark. Things can be hidden. Don't you believe if the employees are using cell phones and computers paid for by our tax dollars, that information should be available? If they are using City equipment, then it should be City business and should be available for open records? You can not judge everyone by what David does, not many of us has the time, devotion, or determination to find the answers that he does.
If more of us had listened when Mr. Quinn started asking questions, maybe we would have had the answers by now. We can not stop asking questions and getting the answers.

You are so right Inacar... Mr. Quinn did indeed try to get many citizens in the city limits to know and understand their rights to gaining access to information from the City of Huntington. Too many times people told him they 'feared' Bruce and Betsy and what they (BM and BG) could do to them or have done to them if they asked questions or 'made waves'. Well, guess what, it looks like Mr. Quinn was the the 'senile old man' that some upper management employees at the City of Huntington were portraying him to be. Next thing you know, Mr. Quinn will be accused of having been a busy body for all the records he requested - and yes it was quite a few. If he were still here, Mr. Quinn would say kuddos to you Mr. Stua and Inacar and anyone else who is bold enough to ask questions (Records Requests) and get the answers they seek for themselves.

1. Stua .... I am an American and only speak/understand American. Your last two posts above make no sense to me.

2. Inacar and Manuela .... I have no knowledge WHO Mr Quinn is. Perhaps a short tutorial is in order.

Mr. Quin, was Lyle Quin McCollough. He was a resident of Huntington for 4 1/2 years and my husband and I were very good friends with him. He passed away October 6, 2012 after a bout with cancer. Mr. Stua is correct that Mr. Quin (as he was known by his friends) did indeed request quite a few records from the City of Huntington. He had questions that only the records could answer for him. And he was not happy with the answers that he received. Diddly, since you take the Lufkin Daily News, I'm sure you saw a couple editorials that were posted by Mr. Quin regarding the then current state of the City of Huntington. He had words with Betsy Gregson on occasion, and did also address a council meeting where he was treated very rudely - it was even mentioned by KTRE news. And that is your short tutorial on Mr. Quin.

Thank you Manuela.
I cannot understand how I could have missed all that.

I will admit though, that as a lifelong (over 70 years) resident of the Huntington area I am not impressed about the worries of newcomers.

I don't know who thinks this post is clueless, but let me assure you I DO KNOW what I am talking about in regards to Mr. Quin and his feelings about what he saw for we had lengthy conversations with him about it. Unless you were in his close circle of friends, you would not know. I do not appreciate you claiming he was clueless, he was 88, almost 89 years old when he passed away, and knew more about how local government entities have changed over the years than you do. He was very outspoken - not just about the City of Huntington, but also about anything that he had concerns about. And according to his children, he had been outspoken all his life. Since you will never have the chance to know him, you will never know this to be a fact, but those of us who did know him, know how he was and I will firmly take this stand and tell you he WAS NOT clueless.

Quin McCollough, son of the late John Lyle and Dora Lenora McCollough, was born December 18, 1923 in Bogalusa, Louisiana, and passed away at the age of 88 on October 6, 2012 in Lufkin, Texas. Though he grew up in Bastrop, Louisiana, Quin became a resident of nine Texas cities. Like so many of 'the greatest generation' he was a WWII veteran, serving in the U.S. Army Asiatic Pacific Theater Campaign (Burma and India). His occupations included bookkeeper, salesman, and at retirement self-employed businessman. Quin's passions were fishing (always looking to catch a big one), traveling (always up for a new adventure), and crossword puzzles (acing them daily). He was a dog and cat lover, the consummate Mr. Fix-It, and greatly admired for his attention to detail. Honesty and fairness were among his strongest beliefs. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 61 years, Charlene, and is survived by his daughter Pat Sherman (Dan), daughter Renee Watson (Larry), son John McCollough (Jerri), daughter Alice McCaskill (Phil), six grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and sister Alice Clark. Special thanks to his 'crew' in Huntington, Texas, whose friendship brought joy to Mr. Quin's final years. He was loved and will be missed. Quin donated his body for medical education and research. Memorials may be made to Hospice in the Pines, 1504 W. Frank Avenue, Lufkin, Texas 75904.

He sure moved around. Obit says he lived in 9 different Texas cities.
I am curious what got him after Huntington. Did he have a blog or such online?

He did not have a blog or anything else online. He lived in Lufkin quite a few years, in the home that he lived in with his Father many years ago, until his wife passed away. He then moved to Huntington. He always questioned why he came to Huntington, but since he did not want to move in with any of his children, it was kind of a 'middle' way for him. He and his wife enjoyed traveling and moved to enjoy different places so that is the only reason I can give for all this residences. I appreciate that you took the time to do a little research and gather information on Mr. Quin.

I believe he started seeing things that didn't add up. When you see things you either ignore it or you ask more questions. Mr. Quin asked questions and found the answers. When you do that in Huntington you are labelled a troublemaker. To me he was a hero, if I had not witnessed how he was treated, I guess I could have ignored his questions too.

I believe the Federal Communications Act of 1934 severely restricts the repeating or revealing any radio communications from law enforcement frequencies.
The act also applies to many other services also except for broadcast radio.

Something to note, if our local papers were investigating local entities, then the Stua's of the world wouldn't have to ask questions. We lack reporters who don't mind stepping on toes. It seems much easier for them to be spoon fed what they report. Do we actually live in such a perfect world that there aren't things that should bother us about the attitude of business as usual?
