The buzz surrounding recent happenings at Seguin Independent School District has certainly created some controversy. From the retirement of Irene Garza and the placement of Stetson Roane, to the reassignment of athletic director Dan Hernandez to the subsequent hiring of interim Hector Salinas, to the hiring of Mr. Roane’s wife and the dubious actions of the school board hiding behind their attorney and keeping the media and the public at arms length, there has been plenty of fodder for conversation and speculation.

Shortly after moving to Seguin in 2000, we were entertaining my cousin and her husband from California at one of the local restaurants. I was telling them the story of Juan Seguin leaving the Alamo to persuade Gen. Sam Houston to take reinforcements to the mission to save it and how Houston said no and would not let him go back. I told them that he later fought in the battle of San Jacinto that decided the final outcome for Texas independence. I was about finished with my story when a man appeared at our table and politely said that he overheard our conversation and that he wanted to add some information that I left out. After several minutes we all felt that we had a new friend in Seguin, and were appreciative of his story of the founding of the city of Seguin.
