BULLETIN -- (Chicago) The PGA board of directors confirmed
it has withdrawn from the proposed PGA Village project, despite the
pleas of a San Antonio delegation this morning.
Judge Nelson Wolff
told me from Chicago that the PGA left the door open for some unspecified
future project here. I am not holding my breath...
(Hey councilman Julian Castro, where's your victory party gonna

Ten-Foot Poll on who's to blame RESULT
1pm-1045pm Tue 6/8/2004
Who's to blame for San Antonio losing the PGA
I am surprised. The Mayor and the greedy business intellect
is at fault. Julian Castro is no more at fault than the citizens
of S.A. He wanted to stand for his community and citizens. I
like this man and his decisions based on the fact that he is
listening to the people of SanAntonio. I applause his decision
for not backing the PGA.the people spoke. Julian Catro is speaking
for the people. I believe that nothing should be built over
the aquifer recharge zone. This is our water we are talking
about. If the PGA had a different site picked, I am certain
they would not have had a problem with the people of S.A.
I guess the name of the poll says it all. Americans are always
looking who to blame first,instead of how do we fix it. I guess
some how we feel better having someone to point to and say "That's
who to blame". The BLAME GAME runs all through our society.
Maybe one day we can focus on the "fix", and then
one by one there will be no one else to blam cause we fixed
everything! "Pie in the sky?", of course, but it's
a nice thought even if it's a fleeting one at that.
Are you really planning to vote for Julianb for Mayor? Oh, I
forgot, you said you are out of the City Limits!
on folks.you can't actually believe a lowly councilperson is
at fault here! There's MUCH bigger guns in this game. This latest
failure is proof positive.Small minds can't run BIG business.
wants to be a 'world class City'. How can we do that when we
don't have a Mayor, a City Council, an honest staff or anyone
seeking to be mayor. In other words, we have no leadership.
Castro wont be throwing a party. He will continue to claim "it
wasnt my fault" Yeah, right! p.s. Felix and his elk (sic)
should learn to type and/or spell.
to hell Castro and the rest of his elk are dammed happy!He and
Guerra are to blame for this city's latest black eye.First are
so called leaders lost Kelly AFB to the BRAC commission now
we look like country bumpkin crackers to all the world for losing
this gem of a private land development deal.Castro wants to
be mayor?He and Schubbert can forget it.Bring on Phil Hardburger
he can't possibly do worse than that pinhead of a boy mayor
our city is now cursed with.Sure toyota is coming,but for every
step forward San Antonio always seems to take two steps back.
luddites won, hell will freeze over before I support a damn
thing for the south siders. There is no way that Julian will
get any support from me, he had my vote, but his coddling of
the flat earth society proves he is the same type of slug that
has governed this city too long
be sure that Mr. Castro will be throwing a party. But the party
will end next election day.
You missed an option on your poll. J. Castro. Thanks,
