Here’s an alert from HSLDA that requires a phone call if you are in the Harris County, Houston – Texas area:
Texas: Action Needed to Stop Harris County Curfew
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,
As announced in our previous e-lert on August 29, 2007, the Harris County Juvenile Curfew Review Committee had a public hearing regarding implementing a daytime curfew. The curfew would be imposed from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the school year and would apply to minors under the age of 17.
At this hearing, many people spoke against the curfew. In addition, numerous emails were to the Committee opposing any type of daytime curfew. However, several law enforcement officials strongly supported it.
The Review Committee will be making a recommendation to the Harris County Commissioners. The Commissioners will then vote on this issue on September 11, 2007.
HSLDA encourages you to contact the Commissioners to express your opposition to the curfew.
El Franco Lee

As for me, I’m doing school planning, homeschooling, and the usual household management things. I’m planning field trips, too. Sorry, but I’m too busy for a personal post today! Hope you are having a great week!
