Disappointed

Crystal City, TX

#1 Mar 2, 2013
Just saw the new Civic Center in Uvalde. I was disappointed to see what appears to be the front of it is not facing Highway 90 as the other did. But mostly I am very disappointed that the letters of the name of our great hero, SSgt. Willie De Leon are hardly visible. Can anyone believe the letters are silver on a silver wall? So now his name is not only not visible to most passersby and travelers just going through town, but now his name is almost a no show.
For all he did we owe him more than that.

Rebel or other people might not know anything about the SGT so instead of being a ASS about it.Why don't you give a little history lesson about SGT DE LEON. If you know anything about him.

Could it be that the person that picked the color scheme was just an idiot? Does it always have to be about race? I think the whole color scheme is ugly! If a change needs to be made, offer to paint it. Or suggest it at a meeting. I agree that it washes out with the the background.

Yes you're wondering right. The Hispanics we have in the city council are worthless. They get out there and campaign for your vote and when they get in, they forget who you are. They just agree with what the white boys say. Especially that mayor SOB. Just because he's a rich boy he thinks he can just add on more and more fees to the citizens of Uvalde, same as with Todd Dorris. Now Jesse Rodriguez was appointed just to sit there to "yes sir" the white boys. John Flores does the same thing. Rogelio Muñoz might disagree with the white boys, but he's only one vote. They also need to get rid of Jennifer Garver. She has no idea what she's doing as a city manager. I guess they didn't know who else to hire in that position. Now to speak about the Civic Center, I noticed the lettering too. You can hardly read the lettering on the silver wall. Shame on the committee/council who chose the lettering. The civic center is named for a solider who served in the military to defend his country. At least they should give him that much. Make the lettering bigger and more noticeable so that people can read it from the street! Just Saying!

They don't really care. They will continue with their own stupid and arrogant ways and practices as long as they have a good control and grip of Uvalde.

No worries DatthugginBish...

I'll f**k so much Sgt. Willie Deleon history so far and deep into your a$$, your tonsils will think it was in the trenches of World War 2 along side with him.

I could strangle you so hard right now that I'm going to have to settle with drowning some poor unsuspecting person's puppy.

Then I'll settle with you.

They should have gotten some ideas from the Uvalde Cancer Center. Kate Marmion name can be seen a few blocks away. It would be nice to know who are the people responsible for putting up the name for the Civic Certer. Anybody knows?
