I pray everyone is enjoying a good summer. As hot as it is, I’m asking you to please be mindful and respectful of devotion and come properly dressed for church. If we “dress up” for festive events, we can also dress up for the Lord, who deserves our best. I’m not saying that everyone should be in formal dress, but we should not dress as if we are going to the beach or a picnic.
In collaboration with our Social Justice Committee and leaders of COPS/METRO, we had a town hall meeting a few weeks ago with engineers and staff of TXDOT as well as the City of Helotes mayor, Mr. Schoolcraft. The meeting centered on the topic of the intersection of Riggs Rd. and FM 1560. We expressed our concerns for the dangerous curve at that intersection. We had a second meeting with TXDOT’s district engineer, Mr. Hector Jorge. There were immediate and long-term solutions proposed. We stressed that urgent solutions be made to this dangerous intersection. We will continue to have follow-up meetings with the state engineers.
