Multiple Texas universities were targeted.The TCU security cameras were able to catch this group and inform other universities of their identities.“The TCU police department has the time, the experience, the expertise and, thanks to the cameras, the evidence to identify you and arrest you if you commit a crime on campus,” said Rangel.Moudy South is being updated this summer and the budget includes adding security cameras to the building.Rangel said every building on campus has cameras at the entrance. However, most of the buildings have cameras on all entrances, elevators and areas where there are valuable items, such as computers.Cameras are not added to any reasonable places of privacy like bathrooms or inside residence hall rooms.

ERIC GARRISON To the Editor:On Jan. 1, 2017, the sales tax rate was reduced from 7 percent to a new rate of 6.875 percent. Problem is, most businesses are still charging the old rate. This is especially troublesome for big- ticket items and fixed income families.In the next few weeks, I will be writing on other tax rip-off items as well. One subject will be water and sewage surcharges. There’s only one water meter in the building. Trouble is, I live by myself, above a successful restaurant. Get the picture? According to the city of Hoboken both the restaurant and myself are supposed to be paying the same amount $23.24 per month.To complete the trifecta, I will be writing about property tax for residential and mixed-use buildings. Currently, I am having audio CDs from a rent-leveling hearing date on Oct. 26, 2016 transcribed. A sneak preview description would be “jaw dropping.” Wait a second, did somebody just say “class-action lawsuit?”To resolve any problem you’re having with the sales tax, call 1 (609) 262-6400 or visit www.njtaxation.org and ask for refund claim form A-3730. Yes, you will need your receipt with the offending 7 percent on it. By the way, tell these stores to get with the program!
