City of Selma, Texas

City of Selma, Texas Selma is believed to be one of the many settlements along the Cibolo Creek founded by German pioneers. In 1849 the Harrison & McCulloch Stagecoach Stop was created to transport passengers and freight between Central, South, and East, Texas.

Quality of life is rich in Selma! First, the City of Selma has several parks: Stage Stop Park, FM 1518 Park, and Davenport Park. The Stage Stop Park was established in part, from a grant from TXDOT that was used to restore the historic Stage Stop. Created was a visitor’s center and park amenities for Selma citizens. Shopping is abundant in Selma with the Forum Shopping Center being in the city’s backyard. Some of the anchor businesses in the Forum Shopping Center are Toys R Us, Starbucks, Hobby Lobby, Old Navy, TJ Max, and Macaroni Grill. Major development along IH 35 near the Forum Shopping Center continues to surge. Selma is also home to Retama Park, a beautiful horse-racing facility that opened in 1995. The facility provides racing for both turf and dirt running horses, catering to both quarter horse and thoroughbred racing fans and simulcasting of races from other major race tracks throughout the country. Lastly, Selma is community driven, committed to engaging with its citizens. Every third Saturday in May, Selma hosts its annual Police & Fire Fundraiser, with an auction, BBQ plate sale, and attractions for the kiddos. All proceeds from the event are donated to the 100 Clubs of Comal & Guadalupe Counties. Selma residents also benefit from other city events like Movie-in-the-Park Night, Halloween & Christmas for the kiddos at the Fire Station, and National Night Out.

Mission: "To be a unique city that leads through providing planned growth, quality of life, and a vision for the future."

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what it is all about!

Everyday I go to our local preschool OLPH Catholic School-Selma, TX and greet the kiddos as they are leaving for the day. Everyday my buddy William (aka Stickers) and I have a laugh and playfully scare each other. Everyday he asks me for a sticker and so everyday I make sure to give him a sticker. This kid is quite possibly the coolest lil dude ever!! He always has a smile and a story and he makes my day brighter with his enormous smile and high fives. Today he gave me this. He has saved all the stickers I have given him and used some of them to make me the best Valentine ever! This lil gem makes my heart sing! Being able to give those kiddos positive police experiences is why I do what I do. I will definitely frame this! Thanks Stickers! Yes... he calls me Officer Stickers and I call him Stickers!

NO RIGHTS FOR FATHERS AND VETERANS IN A BEXAR COUNTY COURTS If you are filing for a divorce and child custody is involved, I recommend for you to file in a different county. If you cannot file in a different county, hope you don’t get one of the following judges … Judge Laura Salinas or Judge John Gabriel. If you do end up with ones of these judges, I recommend you ask to be assigned to a different judge. HERE IS MY STORY I am a Decorated Veteran and I got divorced in 2002 and have been back and forth to court in Bexar County over a dozen times and have spent over $100,000 in attorney fees. I have had to get loans from banks, family, and friends to pay attorneys to be able to see my son. My ex-wife won’t follow the divorce degree and won’t let me see my son. She constantly says, “the judge and police won’t do anything to me” and she is right. This time my family and I haven’t see my son for 10 months. Between fighting to see my son and fighting false EPOs, I am now out of money. My ex-wife likes to file false EPOs. And I have gone to court and proved she is lying every time. All over the courthouse there are signs that says filing a false report is a felony, but these judges won’t file against a mom. I have talked to these judge’s clerks and they have told my family and I that I need an attorney to talk to a judge. I tell them I’m out of money and I want to represent myself. They have laughed at us and told us the judge won’t see us. They did recommend us to talk to Bexar County Domestic Relations Office. I go see them and they tell me that my case is still open, and they can’t help. I ask how to do I get a judge to enforce their ruling, so I can see my son. I quote “You have a better chance to win the lottery than get a judge to enforce their own ruling”. They recommended for me to file charges because it is a felony to not let me see my son. - INTERFERING WITH CHILD CUSTODY - This felony is punishable up to 2 years in jail per incident. I got lucky when I went to file, because Selma PD was very helpful. They said they are tired of the Bexar County DA and judges not enforcing child custody laws. They have helped me to file 12 different times. I talked to Selma police officers about how I can’t get the DA to call me about the charges and they say that, even as police officers, they have found it difficult to get the DA’s office to do anything. So, I go to the SAPD to help. I have recorded Officer Clark and Officer Valez saying… “I know it’s a felony, but I won’t arrest on child custody”. I go to the Bexar County District Attorneys Office, not once, not twice, but 5 times. Once, I talked to CVL Rosie and she tells me that Prosecutor Cynthia Maldonado is assigned my case, but she is at lunch and won’t be back for several hours. Two of the times, I talked to Criminal Investigator Paul Presley and David Getrost (at different times) and they say that Mrs. Maldonado is out at lunch with her bosses and won’t be back for 2 to 3 hours. Another time I talk to Advocate Jessica Menoes, at the DA Office, and she tells me that Mrs. Maldonado is taking care of personal business and won’t be back for 2 to 3 hours. She also informs me that Mrs. Maldonado, most days, takes a 2-3-hour lunch. The last time I went, the receptionist tells me that Mrs. Maldonado is at a hair appointment. If you look up her position, she is only supposed to take an hour lunch. That is stealing from the taxpayers of Bexar County. Mrs. Maldonado finally calls me after several months and tells me that she is “too busy to prosecute”. I tell her that if she doesn’t, then I won’t ever get to see my son. Her answer is “not my problem”. I tried to talk to DA Gonzales, but he is too busy going to lunches and dinners, when he should be making sure that his staff is working instead of going to lunch or getting their hair done. I call the head of the Criminal Investigator Division and he says he is too busy to get involved, even though it’s his job. The Judges, DA Office, Investigators, and Police Officers all sworn to serve and protect us. But it seems that it is more important to get off early to go to fiesta, stock show, dinners, lunches, and take care of personal things than to do their jobs. I don’t know if they are too lazy, too incompetent, or just prejudiced towards Veteran Fathers but what ever it is, it is time to replace them with people that will do their jobs. Luckily, I have been getting help to bring formal complaints against these people through the State Lawyers Discipline Agency, Internal Affairs, and Special Victims Unit. Please keep a watch out on Facebook: New Da Forbexarcounty for videos and updates. 😢
