San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick needs a new moniker.
Let's call him “Captain America”!
What better way to reflect this nation's new values?
Michael Kilgore, Mansfield
Yes, Colin Kaepernick has the right to express his opinion.
He has the right to disrespect those who fought to give him that right.
He also has the right to disrespect those police officers who protect him.
As a Vietnam vet, I feel like I am returning home again!

I am frustrated by fair-weather TCU fans.
It is embarrassing when an empty stadium is shown on national TV.
The heat and humidity at the Iowa State game were oppressive, but it is not fair to Coach Patterson, the players, cheerleaders or band.

The Colleyville Heritage High School students sent a sincere apology to the Trinity student body and acknowledged that what they did was wrong in the signs and banners.
They took responsibility for their actions.
I was extremely offended by Colleyville councilman Bobby Lindamood’s comments. He not only made a derogatory reference but also showed very little if any remorse.
Perhaps Lindamood could learn from the students when it comes to making sincere and meaningful apologies.
As a councilman, he represents a constituency. However, Lindamood does not represent the majority of Colleyville when he refers to students as “colored people.”
I do not accept his apology.

As an Arlington resident, I'm all for bringing new jobs and visitors.
But leaders do not seem to consider public transportation in discussions of the new ballpark, Champions Park or new corporate headquarters.
Arlington already has millions of visitors a year and no public transit.
It's time for the mayor and city council to stop thinking like private developers and start thinking like city planners and consider infrastructure.
I love the old ballpark. I love $15 ticket seats for Fireworks Fridays. I don't want to see the Rangers move to Dallas.
But it makes a lot more sense to have a new stadium at a location that is accessible by train.
Dallas has that and Arlington doesn't.
