A YOUNG BOY’S WISH: Ride a big truck then take chemo

CROSBY – A little guy won over some big ones last Friday and got a wish fulfilled before he had to go to the Medial Center in Downtown Houston for Chemo-therapy.

Dominic Kasper, his father, Jacob, and mother, Christine, of the Commons in Huffman dropped by Crosby VFD Station 2 in Newport last Friday because Dominic answered his dad’s question, “what would you most like to do?” with “Ride a big ole’ firetruck.”

So, Crosby Volunteer Fire Dept. made sure that happened and Dominic got to ride the biggest fire truck in the District.

During his epic ride in his father’s lap Dominic said, “Bye Bye Momma Bye Bye ambulance,” and “Big Fire Truck.”

Crosby bond sale plan proceeds

CROSBY – At last week’s Crosby ISD board meeting, the returns of the bond elections having been canvassed and the plan for finance and sale of the bonds has begun in earnest. The school board is moving with deliberation and thoughtfulness.

One of the prime finance specialists for Southwest Securities was advising the board on May 20. Not all of the bonds will be sold at once and the money demand will take place as construction demands. The construction is expected to take place over a three year cycle.

The board also called Coach Jeff Riordan to the podium to talk about the needs of the high school stadium for a new turf. A plan was approved to replace the turf and keep as much field for practice meanwhile, on a 7 to 0 vote.

The board voted to solicite a program manager or program management firm for the provision of professional services in connection with the district’s construction projects.

In other business the board took careful review of the Curriculum Department especially on the subject of Spanish and will offer new courses, eventually.
