  1. Somebody gave some land away to 6 different parties. It's going to be fun to get anything done on that property.
  2. The comments from the residents are correct. If an area is turned into an historic district, doing anything to a structure becomes more difficult, with more difficulty getting permits and approval to perform work.
  3. 3800 sq ft shop on a nearly 20,000 sq ft lot? Seems like a mismatch.

    5050 Acorn Golf

    This should be interesting, since the subsurface on that property is full of brick making waste, junk, refrigerators, and all sorts of other stuff, according to a friend who lives nearby.
  5. Who is Dora the Explorer? Oh, that's right, the Republican supporters can't come up with actual policy criticism, so they resort to juvenile name calling and racist tropes.
  6. Those same Republicans also despise Hidalgo for having the temerity to address problems in parts of the County not populated by well to do White folks. In their mind, the poor deserve to be poor, and we should not spend one dime on their streets, on crime in those areas, or on anything else, because it might possibly reduce the benefits the more deserving well to do R voters are getting. For the terminally clueless, that's sarcasm. I'll be voting for Hidalgo this year.
  7. Northwood Middle School is the closest possibility I can find. History of North Forest schools is a little sketchy in places. Northwood was closed due to declining enrollment, and was being used for storage in 2003.
  8. I fixed the spelling of Allied Bank Building in your post😁
  9. I am going to remain skeptical until it actually happens. I figure I might have 20 years left. I'll be shocked if those cap parks happen before then.
  10. Oil and gas are not going to go away. The uses outside of transportation and electricity generation are vital to everyday life, from the plastics used in vehicles to reduce weight and increase safety to the plastics used in medical care. I also don't see replacements for large agricultural tractors, the 300-900hp types that run 20 hours a day during certain seasons. There aren't big enough batteries to run those tractors, and you can't drag a large electrical cable over the crops. And, anyone who thinks we will all be driving electric cars in 10 years hasn't looked at the topic very thoroughly
  11. Looks like it's time to file a complaint with the IRS that Crime Stoppers is violating the prohibition of political speech by 501c3 non-profits: Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Saying that a judge should be voted out definitely violates that provision. If Crime Stoppers wants to say a certain judge should be voted out, then I have no issue with revoking their non-profit status, making any contributions non-deductible, and forcing the organization to pay taxes on its income.
  12. There has to be somewhere for the materials delivery and concrete trucks to park while offloading their goods.
