Bored Rich Kids in the Woodlands are Stealing stuff! Who would of Thunk it?

More vehicle burglaries reported in The Woodlands
Car hopping, where a group of young adults go street-to-street burglarizing unlocked vehicles, is a growing trend in The Woodlands.

In the first quarter of 2009, the number of reported cases doubled over the same period last year, leaving its victims with missing cash and electronics, like GPS navigation systems, laptop computers, cellular phones and iPods.

John Raybon, manager of neighborhood services for the Community Associations of The Woodlands, said would be significantly reduced if residents and visitors would just lock up their cars and homes:

A lot of it is plain and simple opportunity.They go door-to-door trying handles and randomly go through cars. When you bought your car, you paid for locks, so just use them. Don't leave your valuables laying out in plain site.
In the first three months of 2009, there were 268 reports of burglaries from motor vehicles in The Woodlands, up from 132 cases reported in the first quarter of 2008.

While the majority of cases in neighborhoods involve unlocked vehicles, there is a growing trend in the Town Center are of The Woodlands for forced entries into cars, said Sgt. Jason Moore of Montgomery County Sheriff's Office District 6, which covers the central business district.

While most car burglaries in the neighborhoods occur at night, those in Town Center are happening during the day in the late lunch hours from about 1-5 p.m.

One of the areas being particularly hard hit is the Landry's parking lot and police believe victims are being watched as they pack their valuable away in their cars.

Good Luck Atlantis!

Big 12 football and the APR

May 7, 2009 5:23 PM

Posted by's Tim Griffin

My apologies for posting this a day late, but I thought that the scores for each Big 12 team in the NCAA's most recent Academic Progress Rate report merited mention.

No Big 12 teams have lost scholarships yet. In fact, only Mississippi and Minnesota have been affected so far among the schools in the "Big Six" conferences.

I think the biggest reason why the rich have tended to be more successful than the smaller schools is because of the academic infrastructure these schools are able to create. Between tutors, computer laboratories and all of the other academic bells and whistles, these schools devote a lot of money to keeping their students eligible -- for obvious reasons.

Here's how the football programs of the Big 12 stacked up in their APR scores this year.

Oklahoma 952

Missouri 951

Nebraska 950

Texas A&M 946

Kansas 941

Kansas State 939

Oklahoma State 939

Texas 939

Iowa State 935

Texas Tech 935

Baylor 930

Colorado 929

Interestingly, the two teams that played in the conference football championship game had the highest APR rates.

None of the schools were below the 925 threshold where penalties begin. That score roughly approximates to a 60 percent graduation rate.

Colorado is coming perilously close with an APR score of 929. Coach Dan Hawkins provided the program with some wiggle room when he signed only 19 recruits in his 2009 class -- two below the number he could have signed.

The Boulder Daily Camera reported the Buffaloes have had at least four scholarship football players leave the program ineligible in the current school year.

If the program's score falls below 925 this year, it would lose a scholarship for every player who left ineligible during the year. The number could be five depending on the status of former linebacker Lynn Katoa.

Baylor Bears, Colorado Buffaloes, Dan Hawkins, Iowa State Cyclones, Kansas Jayhawks, Kansas State Wildcats, Missouri Tigers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Oklahoma Sooners, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M Aggies, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Minnesota Golden Gophers, Mississippi Rebels, Lynn Katoa
