PORT ISABEL, TEXAS, October 2021 — The CAF-RGV Wing (Commemorative Air Force – Rio Grande Valley Wing) performed last weekend, October 2nd & the 3rd. Unfortunately, they were not able to perform Friday evening due to weather conditions, but they still put on a performance Saturday evening. In an interview with Jeanne Hughston, she explained that one of the pilots decided he wasn’t going to be here with all these fireworks, and not use them. They went through with having a great performance Saturday evening. She continued by saying “I think A LOT of people enjoyed it... Saw people posting about it, putting

pictures online...” When asking David Hughston, the airshow chairman & finance officer, why this event is so important He exclaimed “It’s very important!” He continued “One of the things we pride ourselves in doing, is teaching the lessons of history... We like to demonstrate almost living history by flying these old airplanes... And it’s all in a family-friendly environment, we love to have the kids to come out and see the airplanes flying in the air” he continued by saying that it also sparks interest in the varied careers available in aviation. And when asked directly, what keeps them putting on these airshows, He puts it simply, “It’s just a joy.” He said. Family is really what it’s all about

UTRGV Expands Tuition Advantage Program to $100,000 UTRGV Tuition Advantage is open to all in-state undergraduate students (incoming freshmen and current, readmitted, and transfer students) who meet the program’s requirements.

UTRGV Spring 2021 graduates celebrate their graduation day in May on the Edinburg Campus. (UTRGV Archival Photo by Paul Chouy) By News and Internal income of $100,000 or less price. Communications and with unmet financial need. “As I’ve said many RIO GRANDE times before, at UTRGV, VALLEY, TEXAS – SEP. Tuition Advantage’s we want to ensure that 29, 2021 – The University $100,000 family income our students can obtain a of Texas Rio Grande threshold is the largest of degree without having to Valley announced today any free-tuition program in mortgage their futures,” an expansion to its already the state and is believed to he said. “Providing this highly competitive Tuition be the largest in the nation. additional support is Advantage program. especially important President Guy Bailey right now, as many of our Beginning Fall 2022, said this expansion is students and their families the program will cover another example of continue to struggle the cost of tuition and UTRGV’s commitment to financially because of the mandatory fees for eligible providing a high-quality pandemic.” students with a family education at an affordable

The program is particularly important to new students who join UTRGV during the Fall of 2022 because they could pay an increased fee if a student referendum passes this November. The referendum is seeking an $11.25 increase per credit hour (up to 12 hours only) to the Intercollegiate Athletics Fee to, over the next four years, expand spirit programs and establish marching bands in both Brownsville and Edinburg, a women’s swimming and diving program, and a football program. Currently, enrolled students continuing enrollment in their current level will not pay the proposed increase until Fall 2025 because of UTRGV’s Guaranteed

Tuition plan. And for new students who will have to pay, Dr. Magdalena Hinojosa, senior vice president for Strategic Enrollment and Student Affairs, said the Tuition Advantage expansion will help to offset the increase for many.

“We are one of the most affordable institutions in Texas and in the country, and we are committed to keeping it that way,” Hinojosa said. “We truly believe the proposed referendum will greatly enhance the university’s campus experience and supplementing that with a bigger and better Tuition Advantage is the perfect combination.” UTRGV, which last year was named the nation’s top public university for least student debt, always has been committed to keeping costs low for students. The university has one of the lowest average tuitions among the state’s public universities and offers:

Guaranteed Tuition: UTRGV’s tuition is guaranteed for all students for four years, meaning costs will not increase during this period. 12-Hour Cap: UTRGV caps tuition charges at 12 hours, which means any additional courses a student enrolls in after 12 hours are free. For example, if a student enrolls in 15 hours, the extra class is free; 18 hours, the two extra classes are free. And in the recent Washington Monthly college rankings, UTRGV is: 1st in Texas and 2nd among national public universities for the lowest price of attendance. 1st in Texas and 3rd among national public universities for the performance of Pelleligible students. 3rd in Texas and 55th among national public universities for social mobility of students.

First Baptist Church, La Feria The same morning that I read about Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen; I received a call about a 15-year-old I know who tried to take her life. She has been hospitalized in a behavioral unit. The documents smuggled out by Haugen reveal that Facebook places profits above any sense of civic duty or even the lives of its users. Teenage girls are particularly vulnerable to the sinister algorithms. Social media is so popular it is hard to imagine a world without it. However, it is fantasy to imagine a forprofit institution policing itself. Particularly when that policing will reduce profits. Saint Paul said, ``Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable…think on these things.” If Facebook would work on the true part that would be a good start. -Mark S. Ross DMin.
