    Texas municipal court Judge Young Min Burkett was suspended after it was discovered she is not an united States citizen.  Now, the Corpus Christi City Council has voted to return her to the bench after she was naturalized. Burkett was placed on unpaid leave in May because it was discovered that she is not a US citizen. According to reports, Burkett was supposed to go to San Antonio to expedite her citizenship application and since that time she has been naturalized. However, following her suspension and naturalization, the Corpus Christi City Council voted to return her to the bench. KRIS TV...

    The Midland Reporter-Telegram ^ | May 7, 2017 | Trevor Hawes
    Talks have been bubbling in recent months about making major route changes to Interstate 14, but the primary organization behind the push says it’s facing resistance from a West Texas representative and the state’s senior senator. Regional transportation lobby group Midland-Odessa Transportation Alliance (MOTRAN) has pushed to change the congressionally approved western route of I-14, also known as the Forts to Ports Highway and the Gulf Coast Strategic Highway System. Forts to Ports aims to connect Fort Bliss in El Paso with Fort Hood in Central Texas and Fort Polk in Louisiana. The plan also connects to military deployment ports...
  • Valero Energy’s Corpus Christi (TX) refinery sued after water contamination

    “At this time, we believe this is a localized backflow issue from third party operations in the area of Valero’s asphalt terminal … We believe this issue is isolated to a lateral industrial line. Valero is offering its resources to assist the city in isolating the issue and to help confirm this has not impacted the city’s water supply.” The Corpus Christi legislative delegation released a statement saying two chemicals may have been released into the public water system, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. The city previously identified Indulin AA-86, an emulsifying agent for asphalt, as the main hazard....

    Learn the Latin of “O Salutaris Hostia” and “Tantum Ergo Sacramentum” Msgr. Charles Pope • May 31, 2016 • As a further reflection in the wake of Corpus Christi Sunday, permit me to offer a reflection on the two great Eucharistic hymns of Benediction. I sometimes get requests for help in understanding the Latin texts of these very familiar hymns for Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction.“O Salutaris Hostia” and “Tantum Ergo Sacramentum,” though familiar to many Catholics, remain only vaguely understood in terms of a word-for-word translation. They are sometimes referred to as just “O Salutaris” and “Tantum Ergo.” Most...

    Jesus Wants to Feed You! Corpus Christi Msgr. Charles Pope • May 28, 2016 • On the Feast of Corpus Christi, we do well to mediate on the desire of the Lord to feed His people and the shocking indifference many have to this fact. This indifference is not just on the part of those who do not come to Mass; it is also found among those in the pews, many of whom don’t seem to care that so many people no longer attend. We should recognize the passionate concern the Lord has to feed all His people—yes even...

    CORPUS CHRISTI - Police are still trying to sort out what led to a massive brawl this weekend in a southside gas station parking lot.At least one person was shot, but everyone scattered when police showed up.Now, CCPD is hoping surveillance video will help them make arrests in the case.That video is really their only hope, because even the victim isn't cooperating with them.Police say they've never seen anything like what happened early Saturday morning at the 7-Eleven at Weber and SPID.Over 100 people were there, many of them trading punches in multiple fights all going on at the same...

    Our Living Faith: Corpus Christi & the Streets Glenna Walsh Growing up in a Catholic family, a Catholic school, and a Catholic neighborhood, I do not remember ever being told that the feast of Corpus Christi is a pretty big deal. No one need tell me; rather, it was shown to me, to the entire parish, through celebration. Every year after Mass we would have a procession. The celebrant, in his solemn vestments, would lead the parishioners, holding the Eucharist in the monstrance high above his head. The point impressed itself clearly upon my imagination: Jesus led His flock, my...

    Introduction: The Feast Day of Corpus Christi (The Body of Christ) was requested by Our Lord himself. It was not a feast day that the Church in its wisdom decided to include in the liturgical calendar. It was a feast day, rather, that Jesus Christ requested through extraordinary means by appearing to his servant Saint Juliana and showing her a Moon that he said was symbolic of the feast day that was needed, that he wanted, that he requested, the feast day of Corpus Christi. And Saint Juliana said "But Jesus, we have a feast day Holy Thursday". And Our...

    Southwest Airlines is among the major corporate sponsors of the 2015 “Creating Change” conference, an annual event drawing thousands of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, “queer” and “kink” (sadomasochistic) activists from across the country. The massive gathering of LGBTQueer activists opens today in Denver and includes a screening of a documentary film celebrating a “gay”-authored play casting “Jesus” as a homosexual. The documentary, “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” celebrates the 1998 play “Corpus Christi,” by homosexual playwright Terrence McNally, in which “Joshua,” representing Jesus Christ, is cast as a homosexual who as a teenager had homosexual sex with Judas (who later becomes...

    California's measles outbreak has climbed to 91 confirmed cases, prompting a vicious attack from USA Today contributor Alex Berezow against "anti-vaxxers." He blames them for the epidemic that CDC officials say was introduced at the Disneyland theme park by a person infected with measles overseas. Berezow's knee-jerk reaction is to declare, "Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail." He erroneously maintains that measles could not spread in a fully vaccinated society and discredits as "ludicrous" concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Claiming there is a "mountain of data" proving otherwise, his one and only...

    CORPUS CHRISTI - The city of Corpus Christi on Tuesday announced it can not come up with all of the money needed to repay the federal government for a failed, public housing project. The news comes on the heels of a KRIS-6 Investigation into the League of United Latin American Citizens - Apartment of the Village project, a low-income housing unit for disabled veterans. But the project derailed and the money, disappeared. After years of delay, the city sued the league to recover the $400,000 block grant which city leaders approved, in 2008. That is because the city, not L.U.L.A.C.,...

    Firearms Scheduled for destruction by Phoenix Police before the Arizona Law took effect. Many people would be surprised to learn that police departments in Texas routinely destroy valuable property for political purposes.   That is the case in Corpus Christi, and in many other departments in Texas.   From The CCPD will continue their process of destroying guns that are no longer needed as evidence. A total of 353 guns were destroyed last year. Guns collected by police typically sell to dealers for about $100 each, so the CCPD destroyed $35,000  of assets for no legitimate reason.   Police are...

    CORPUS CHRISTI - Nueces County District Attorney Mark Skurka says a grand jury took no action in the shooting case against business owner Dan Caballero. Back in December, Caballero was questioned by police when a suspected burglar was shot and killed at his home. Detectives were looking into whether he fired in self-defense when Dustin Tate entered his home. Skurka did not detail what charges, if any, his office was seeking against Caballero. The police report on the shooting stated Tate was shot twice before running through the backyard, hopping a fence and falling to the ground on the golf...
