some questions about the local college?

Did you know the Sungard (IT) people the school board hired, charges the college hundreds-to thousands of dollars to move a computer from one building to another?

ALSO THEY USE SHAREWARE SOFTWARE!!!! They are paid millions of dollars but they use shareware software!!!!!(free to anyone on the internet). unbelievable.

Wonder why you dont read this in the newsmedia???

With all the people being fired at the college..... wonder why the Andrews position wasn't eliminated in all the people being fired. Because he is black. No blacks were fired. They let a lot of good people go and kept the minorities who don't know crap from shilo. The man gets what???$65,000 a year? To go around and encourage students to stay in school? A very important position? Or political correctness gone wild? and the "witch" is permanently out of town!!!! Remember all this when its time to vote for new school board members!

Big question .... again..... How much did the free trip for all the texarkana college board members and their immediate families to Canada cost the college? if its hurting so bad for money, supplies are short!!!! and now they're going to San Antonio?

whats really sad about this: the school board minority are trying to run the college in the ground so A&M can buy them out: EQUALS: higher tutition rates!!! Community will suffer, students will suffer,,,,, why did Truman Arnold contribute $10 million dollars to A&M? Why was Frank Coleman fired? Why were all the Deans fired?

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS PEOPLE WHEN YOU DONT GET INVOLVED, YOU DONT GO OUT AND VOTE, YOU LET A FEW IDIOTS RUN THE ENTIRE PROCESS.....YOUR CHILDREN WILL SUFFER!

Sungard was paid big money (millions) to UPGRADE the system. why should they be using software that anyone can download off the internet FOR FREE. doesnt sound much like an upgrade. besides it limiting in its ability to what is required of it.

TC considers expanding taxing district

If OK’d, move would be on 2012 ballot, include all of Bowie County
Talk during a public hearing to discuss Texarkana College’s tax rate turned to possibly expanding its taxing district. The college’s current rate is 9.7527 cents per $100 valuation, and the proposed 2011-12 rate is 10.5339 cents per $100 valuation. The hearing was Tuesday at the Truman...

You should do more research on open source software.

dont need to. some of it is good. the "crap" that Texarkana College uses was written by a 3 year old. Sungard is NOT good for the College. Polititcal correctness will be its downfall. Already there is another college coming to Texarkana that will replace it. Then IT will have a lot of empty buildings.

So, what is going on at the college ? I see where people are let go, money is tight, and the School Board minority wants to run the college into the ground? What is the benefit to the community if TJC combines with TAMU-T? What college wants to come here and buy out TJC ?

The university of Arkansas is coming to Texarkana Arkansas. It will be the downfall of TC. The affirmative action, political correctness or trickle down obamanonimcs that has invaded TC is NON-productive. Its like working in the Gestapo. Maybe James Henry can turn it around, but it will be moving a mountain. He would have to get rid of SunGard first. EVERYONE hates them. When they control everyones computer, they control their work environment. Its not Big brother after dark, its big brother high noon. Only people who will want to work there are those who cant find jobs elsewhere, or those who dont know shIp from shilo.

Good questions.

You might also ask why James Henry Russell was hired as president of TC.

You would think that a college president position would require a doctorial degree since even many public school principals have that credential these days.

Oh, but I forgot. Russell's a local fair-haired boy.

Enough said!

Some advice: Best to remain silent and leave the matter of your intelligence in question, rather than speak and prove to everyone you're a freaking idiot.

Russell got the job because he's quailified and has a proven track record. In his short tenure, he's already reduced the projected deficit by $5 million.

Get behind him and support him--he's the best thing TC has going for it at present. AND, at this point, he is their only hope.

As usual, you don't have a clue in that pumpkin you call a head.
James Henry Russell got the Texarkana College job because of one reason and one reason only. He is Larry Sullivan's butt boy. Nothing happens in this town without Sullivan's approval. Larry could do something about this heat but he won't because he thinks he is God and wants to be worshipped.

There will be changes when Larry Sullivan says there will be changes. Larry is more than the city manager in this town. He also controls just about every aspect of education from kindergarten to college and most of the city council is employed in educational positions at TISD and Texas A&M and answer either directly or indirectly to him or his wife. That is why there are only two council members who have any balls and who will stand up to Sullivan(Josh Davis and Willie Ray and Willie has more balls than Sullivan, Mayo, the male council members and Charlie the Bassett Hound put together.

Keep on listening to Jeff Akin and he will make a complete aging dumb ass out of you. This county cannot afford for TC not to make it. I will vote to expand the area and I don't live in the city.

only way for them to survive is to break their contract with sungard, and let those people move back to california.

that would allow for more corrupt representatives to run for school board positions if the tax base were expanded. or also, maybe someone honest. I need a lantern.
