Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in this column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

Natalia school-uniform lawsuit settled: Bates won't have to wear 'em

I'll have the father, Kirk Bates, on my Thursday show. The wording of this joint press release looks to me like the Bates family had the Natalia school board screaming "YOU my Daddy! YOU my Daddy!"

Both parties agree to issue a joint press release that states the following:
Over the past two years or so, the Bates family has pursued, based upon strongly held philosophical and religious beliefs, an exemption from the Natalia ISD*s uniform wearing requirement. The District*s Board of Trustees, also acting on the strongly held belief that its actions were in compliance with the law and the District*s own policies, denied the requested exemption for two school years. Although the Bates family and the Board of Trustees may never see eye-to-eye on every aspect of this situation, they have agreed to set aside their differences and agree to a compromise that everyone involved believes is in the best interests of the District, its students, its staff and its patrons. The District wants to expressly note for the public record that it admires the Bates family for its perseverance and dedication in seeking to clarify the law and in fighting for their beliefs.
