    Metal detectors spark intense debate in Santa Fe

    Caption Close Jessica Hagewood knew folks were curious to see if she and 31 others on Santa Fe ISD's newly-appointed security committee would recommend the use of metal detectors in the district's four schools in an effort to keep students in the northern Galveston County community safe. She had no idea, however, how passionate and terrified other parents were until last week. “I had people Thursday, they were so stressed about that meeting, they were in tears just from having that out-of-control feeling,” said Hagewood, who has three children in the district. “I never thought in a million years that metal detectors would be more controversial than arming teachers and that conversation.” On Monday,

    Former Texans provide brief escape for Santa Fe Football players

    Hunter Farris let his protective instincts take over when gunshots rang out during the horrific shooting episode at Santa Fe High School. The rising senior offensive lineman and a friend shoved large pottery kilns across the art room to block doors. They prevented the shooter wearing a trenchcoat, 17-year-old Santa Fe student Dimitrios Pagourtzis, from entering the room as he brandished a shotgun and a revolver. “We just reacted,” Farris said. “We pushed the ovens in front of the doors to keep him out. My friend did not make it out safely.” In the process, Farris and his friend likely prevented the shooter from unleashing more violence during one of the deadliest school shootings in the United

    This is why any new gun 'red flag' restrictions face steep roadblock in Texas

    Typically, Texas lawmakers look for ways to expand gun rights, but recent tragedies open discussion on whether "red flag" laws would make people safer. AUSTIN – In a state that has seen a steady expansion of gun rights for nearly 25 years, Texas lawmakers are actively considering measures that would make it easier to keep  firearms away from people shown to be dangerous and perhaps even mandate how weapons must be stored in private homes. "The idea that we're going to stop school shootings by something you do here or something that's done in Congress is a bogus premise," former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson recently told a legislative panel in Austin examining potential responses to gun violence. Patterson is perhaps the best-known advocate for gun rights in Texas.

    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick offers to donate metal detectors to Santa Fe ISD

    Caption Close Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said he is willing to donate up to 10 metal detectors to Santa Fe ISD if the district wants them for security upgrades following the May shooting that left 10 people dead at Santa Fe High School. The Santa Fe ISD school board has not discussed or approved adding metal detectors, and large donations typically must receive board approval. Nevertheless, Patrick said he wanted to provide the option to the district if it moves quickly to install metal detectors before the start of school in August. “On the day of the shooting in Santa Fe, I made securing the entrances and exits to our schools a top priority,” Patrick said in a press release. “Santa Fe parents

    Santa Fe High School alumni plans fundraiser in wake of shooting

    SANTA FE – This year marks the 10-year reunion for the Santa Fe High School class of 2008 and in the wake of the school shooting where 10 people were killed, organizers are inviting everyone to their reunion. It's been 10 years since Camille Warren walked the halls of Santa Fe High but the colors Green and Gold still conjure that Indian pride. “I loved it,” said Warren. “It was fun! It went by too fast.” “Football games, Friday night lights, making spirit shirts every weekend with friends looking back you miss those days.” For her, Santa Fe High is where so many cherished memories still live. However, after May's deadly shooting, it's also a place darkened by an abhorrent act. “It was horrible.
