  1. Following your information, which is correct, here is the job listings for Pilot Store #573 Pilot Flying J - Store 573
  2. Just hearsay, and hopefully real information soon, but they are gutting the property now and have heard it is supposed to be a larger truck stop with restaurant.

  4. My understanding is they did not pay their liquor license and couldn't keep up with the lease payments. One thing leads to another and Exxon shuts the place down. I believe Exxon is still interested in someone to lease the location. Denny's tried to shrink the menu with just the basics but couldn't generate enough revenue. I don't have facts beyond that on the Exxon, but locals that I know have often talked about questionable sells practices, expired goods, improper temperature controls, pump equipment problems, and I speak from experience that it was one of the dirtiest places I have ever been in.
  5. KISD Facebook posted a new aerial tour of Klein Cain.
  6. I love the roster and pictures, thanks for sharing. The weight of the boys is interesting and the Yell Leaders is classic.
  7. I agree. Where's a good minor league baseball mascot when you need one? This is why I would like for them to pick Hurricanes with Purple. It's the most non-stock out of the choices. But then you have to deal with the Cain Canes and the dance squad being the Cain Candy Canes. Unless the mascot is a giant purple Candy Cane carrying a Big Ass Fan to provide gale force winds...then we're talking!!!
  8. What was explained to me by several administrators during the construction of new high schools for Tomball and Cy-Fair was the "cost-to-create and maintain." In their research, they found it easier to consistently reproduce basic colors and basic mascots over time (uniforms, paint, logos, letterhead, etc). Also, one individual involved in the Tomball Memorial development called these generic choices the "fear of lawsuits from the politically correct." Honestly, you can point your finger in any direction as to why. I don't think many of the kids knew they were going to be given an opportunity to vote. I truly believe if the kids in all these intermediate schools knew, they could have started a bigger movement for the Gorillas (#harambe) and that would have been awesome.
  9. Announcement for colors/mascot to be made by first part of next week according to Principal Patin.
  10. Update: @vsbcade was partially correct. Three options for mascot and colors. These were presented to all future Cain freshman at the appropriate intermediate schools. The kids were allowed to vote. A heavy write-in vote for Gorillas was also occurring it seems. Mascot choices: Hurricanes Wildcats Mavericks Color choices: Crimson/Yellow/White (Washington Redskins) Purple/Silver/Black/White (Baltimore Ravens) Navy/Orange/White (Denver Broncos)
  11. According to @vsbcade, mascot is down to hurricanes or Wildcats. And the colors will be purple, white, black, silver.
  12. Apparently there are small student focus groups at all schools filtering into Cain. These groups were shown three colors and three mascots for their opinions. Students will not pick color and mascot, but these small focus groups may help influence the final choice.
  13. Klein representative, "It is too early to assume children will be allowed to decide mascot and colors for the new Klein Cain High School. Once appointed, the new principal will make that decision." Principal = Nicole Patin
  14. Klein Cain *rumor for mascot is an old bald man *rumor for colors is khaki and gray
  15. High School #5 will be named at the Aug. 8 Board meeting. For those of you riding the recent rumor train of Cain Memorial High School, it was mentioned that there is a bylaw which makes the name Klein mandatory for all high schools. I have no idea if that is correct or not. Either way, we will find out soon.
  16. From 249: Does 99 now connect to Hardy South? From Downtown: Does Hardy now connect to 99 West?
  17. I thought HEB was scheduled to build at Champions Forest and 99 at the Gleannloch Farms entrance?
  18. I know zoning is finalized and you can see that on the KISD website but has anyone heard any other updates of any kind? What's the scuttlebutt?
  19. Experimented this morning to get to an office building two blocks from Minute Maid. This is not my normal destination. Beginning at the 249 & 99 crossway at 6:04am. Went 99 towards The Woodlands. Exited I45 South from 99 but DID NOT fully go I45 South. You can stay in the middle lane of the feeder when you exit 99 going towards I45 South, cross over I45, turn north as if going to The Woodlands while staying on the feeder, pass by Spring Carpets on the feeder, and do somewhat of a U-turn back towards Hardy toll road, enter the Hardy toll road and make your way into downtown using Hardy Street. Reached my destination at 6:47am. I also learned yesterday that it is a cluster trying to backtrack this type of path from downtown. I do not think 99 is of current value for anyone trying to go north on 45 or Hardy in order to connect 99 west towards Tomball or Cypress. It seems the old Beltway 8 to 249 or 290 is the still the best possible option.
  20. Driving the speed limit on 99 gave me these results today: 2920 (Tomball entrance) westbound to Bucee's on 290 was 23 minutes 249 to 45 North Sawdust exit was 12 minutes
  21. Is there a direct connection to the Hardy Toll Road available now or will we have to wait for that to be completed?
