Jim Schutze Was Right — Six Years Ago — About John Wiley Price

It is time to give Jim Schutze (aka Charles Schultz) his propers. In Sunday's DMN, Steve Thompson wrote a story about the John Wiley Price indictment and the story it tells about the commissioner's meddling with the inland port. Schutze wrote that story in 2008. Oh, maybe not that exact story. Though Schutze did mention the Perot family and how they might benefit from a stalled inland port, he didn't ever use the word "Hillwood." But, really, he had it. He said Price was running a shakedown, and he said it with the help of Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. She deserves credit, too. "I see all of these different deals that he's trying to do over the years, shaking people down and all that kind of stuff," she told Schutze. Go back and read it. It's worth your time. Something else interesting about that Schutze story: he mentions that State Senator Royce West played a role in Price's scheme. Why is that interesting? Because it is. Just something to think about.
