  1. You were right, it was a tank with dividers.
  2. It is on his property but would probably be hard to find since he had never seen it before. Very nice guy that would not be a threat to someone looking around, he just wants to raise cattle. He has much larger ranches in the panhandle and in Arkansas. He had a swine farm near Westheimer Pkwy and Fry road but got into a legal battle with Kickerillo homes and had to shut it down. No wonder there are so many wild pigs in Bush Park.
  3. Mystery road and cross is no longer a mystery. I just met the property owner and he explained the circles, cross and the military activity behind the dam. This land has been in his family for many generations and he knows the history. He also owns the property behind the Barker dam. Many years ago the circles and cross in question was a fish farm and these were tanks next to a loading dock. The cross probably divided different size or species of the fish for sale. He moves his cows when it floods and has no mutilated cattle or any other strange activity. I ask him about all the military stuff going on there when I was a kid and he said the military used the land to practice very low altitude jumps for a conflict we had going on at the time down in Panama. Recently, he was looking for a steer and went into some heavy brush and found an Indian burial ground. He did a GPS and sent it to the Corps of Engineers. He has never seen or heard anything strange or of any real interest to make this mystery road, crop circles or cross anything more than an old fish farm.
  4. TxDOT did not have the money to widen the Katy freeway so, working for a local engineering firm, I handled fee negotiations for Harris County Toll Road (HCTRA). We gave TxDOT $500 million, about half the construction cost, for 4 lanes down the middle of the freeway. Do you think HCTRA would have spent so much if they didn't already know the freeway would be over capacity before the construction was even finished. So pay the tolls or sit in traffic..
  5. About 90% of property owners in Houston fought hard to block the bikeway. They didn't stand a chance against HCFCD or the City of Houston. My job was to get this right of way. I was told directly from the city to first, ask that it be donated, then offer a small amount of money since the path only needed about 12 feet. If the owner would not sale, we were told the city could just take the ROW by law. But then, after spending allot of money we figured out that we were going over a easement with an easement so no reason to even ask permission or buy any property. Many property owners, including a city counsel man, were very upset when they found out that yes, the property line does extend into the bayou but Harris Counties easement over rode ownership. I was out putting stakes down where the trail would run along Braes bayou as an upset owner followed me pulling up the stakes throwing them into the bayou. A couple months later he has construction going on in his backyard. You can fight, you just won't win. Myself, I took 110 parcels along bayous.
  6. If you read the first post I made on this subject you will see that I spent over a million dollars doing a survey and a 50 year chain of title on 110 properties that never needed to be done in the first place. We thought as the Bikeway Program managers that we needed to purchase or in some cases, just "take" the land from owners who had property that extends to the middle of a bayous. Harris County Flood Control has the power to do what ever they want to on the easements including going over an easement with an easement. In this case, a hike and bike trail. Communities and owners tried to fight us but they lost.
  7. It does not matter who owns the property are if it extends to the middle of the bayou. Harris County Flood Control has an easement that over rides ownership.
  8. Today on Click2Houston web site is a story of a couple in Hall County who raise cattle. They are investigating the 20th mutilated cow in the last year. Same story in evey case, surgical removal of the same organ parts with no evidents left behind. Police do not have have a clue as to what could be causing this: Sept 30, 2010 "The couple has called the Hall County Sheriff's Office after each incident, but authorities are just as confused. Investigators said they’re stumped because the culprits don't even leave behind any footprints". The ranchers have offered rewards for any info on these deaths. I am as confused as everyone else and would like to know why and how this keeps happening. If anyone has a clue, other than the ranchers are taking mind altering mushrooms, please fill me in because these stories keep being reported.
  9. I see alot of post about the Houston Bikeway taking so long to complete and existing trails not being maintaned. In the beginning, we had to come up with standards for these trails to be built. We designed them and sent them out to over 20 engineering firms. The work started and was on schedule until TxDOT said you can not use City of Houston standards, it has to be approaved by TxDOT. So we started over with TxDOT standards and a month later Harris County Flood Control said you are using our ROWs along bayous so you have to use our standards. By this time a couple million had been spent but no actual work had been done. This was just the beginning of one political blunder after another, not to mention the million I waisted researching 110 titles and surveys that ended up not being needed and the lead engineer who had a suspended license. We started doing better background checks after that little mishap. I hope the firm that has this project now is having better results because we fealt like a ping-pong ball bouncing between there agentcies.
  10. I have traveled all over the U.S. and my favorite trip was to Bellevue, WA. just outside Seattle. People were nice even though they laughted at my southern accent, it did not rain for the 90 days I was there and the music scene was like Austin on steroids. I hope I get to visit there again!
  11. Southern Pacific Railroad would not allow use of any of the rail corridors for safety and insurance reasons. If we planned a trail on one side of a bayou and a resident complained to city counsel or threatened lawsuit, we would move the trail to the other side of the bayou. The determining factor was who had the least amount of money to fight us in court. Not very fair, but if you do not have money for a good lawyer get ready for a trail in your own backyard. Which is not a bad thing because police ride bikes down these paths and can see everthing.
  12. I spent 12 years with the oldest traffic engineering company in the United States. We did all kinds of highway design, warrant studies and modeling. Here in Houston I worked on the Katy freeway expansion, Westpark tollroad and many other projects for Metro, TxDOT, Harris County and Harris County Tollroad authority. One of the biggest projects was the Houston Bikeway Program. I was put in charge of right of way to clear the path of over 110 parchels. I had to meet with all local community associations as well as HABA (Houston Area Bike Assoc.) to get input and to keep them informed. If you owned property where the path was designed we would try to get you to donate the small piece of land. If that didn't work we would offer a small amount of money for the rights. If that didn't work, we took it under condenation. My first task was to hire title companies to do a 50 year chain of title and have the survey done of the property. Then I subbed the work out to 23 local engineering firms. Making sure a percentage went to minority owned companies and all were compliant with drug policies and testing. Insurance of at least a million dollars was required and all subs had to be managed to stay within budgets. We had approached the mayor at the time (Lanier) and he wanted this to be his legacy to the city. This being new turf for my engineering company, a few mistakes were made. After the first year we were on track but figured out that we were going over an easment with an easment. Harris County Flood Control had the right of way already. By this time I had spent well over 1 million dollars researching titles. Tax money not well spent. We had over 40 million federal dollars to work with so no big deal. This money was given to Texas for the use of alternitive fuel. We hired an engineer to oversee the whole project, and the first year went well with trails being put in all over Houston. During the second year we figured out that the engineer we had hired was not a registered P.E. This was too big a cat to let out of the bag so we swept it under the rug and kept going. I moved on to other projects and the Bikeway program was taken away from the firm and given to another local engineering company who was very involved with Houston politics. Contributing thousands to elections and getting most local contracts. I jumped ship myself and went to work for this company. Channel 11 wanted me to give them information about the Bikeway program but I was and still am scared of a deflamation suit. The Bikeway idea itself was a great thing and I am glad to have been part of it.
  13. Yea, I checked and no x-files have been filed. However, the US Army has lot's of information concerning events in and around this Addicks area. The file before me right now reads"FOR YOU EYES ONLY. TOP SECRET!' On the second page in bold letters is the name MAJESTIC. Do not know what that means. Call this a joke or a hoax but an investigation was done and the results yielded some very intresting facts. Page 27 THE GREAT DECEPTION: This event will happen shortly before the second coming of Christ. You ask yourself what does religeon have to do with this topic, keep reading Batboy! The aliens, as you call them or refered to in this report as Nephilim. They claim they are responsible for the creation of the human race. That without their direct involvement, humankind as we know it today wouldn't exist. We would be , at best, in evolutionary terms, still be swinging from the trees. Page 43 GENETIN MANIPULATIONS: What the Aliens are saying negates what at least a portion of humankind has believed for thousands on years: the special act of creation by a divine being who designed humans in his own image. THE CRUCIFIXION: The aliens have a document on the crucifixion, and briefly put, they claim to have some sort of holographic film of it. They claim to have directly intervened in the resurrection. Now consider you have these UFO cosmonauts or aliens, whatevever you want to call them...Why is it that they travel who-knows-how-many light years to get here, and one of the first things out of their mouths is to tell us that Jesus was not the son of God and that the crucifixion was unnecessary and that they assisted in the resurrection,,,I myself, find this incredible! Out of all the things to discuss like the cure for cancer or saving the planet, they want us to know that Jesus wasn't God. If they can succeed, they crush the hope that Jesus has given mankind for the last two thousand years. Which of course is the hope for eternal life. So maybe the man-made cross in the middle of the everlasting circle is not a symbal but a warning. If God exist and created us, and if aliens changed our genetics, he should flood the earth and start over. Oh yea, he already did that. As for myself, I do not know what flooded dams, strange circles with crosses in them, mutilated cattle and the military all have in common. But I can tell you they are waisting alot of time, tax money and resources to investigate UFO sightings, abductions and cover ups. When they seem to already have the answers. From what I can make of this info, they do not come from another galaxy but from another realm. And why so interested in our genetics? Just so you know, I have never seen one episode of the x-files and I am not on mushrooms.
  14. I posted a story here about a year ago about some strange events I witnessed growing up next to Addicks Dam. I said I did not believe in ETs or aliens but stated what I had seen and was made fun of by all the sceptics. The subject thread was about the two circles behind the dam seen from aireal photos. A group went out there and using GPS located the circles and concluded they were probably made by people of the town of Addicks that is gone now. One has a cross in it. Because of some military exercises and mutilated cattle found in the same area, some here on this site made all kinds of rude jokes and related it to x-files and outer limits tv shows. I have not been back until now and you are talking about ufo's. Looks like the sceptics are still here but the topics are more open minded. Well things have changed, I do believe now and I am still seeing the same thing just a little further out from Houston. I now live in Katy and for the last two months bright circles are flying over my neighborhood making eratic manuvers with strobbing lights like they are communicating with each other. I am not even sujesting these are from another world, but if you saw them you would think so, I promiss you. These flying ships are not trying to hide or be stealth but are appearing in the early evening close to major roads like I-10 and Grand Parkway. Night after night we all watch them and video them but the police and military deny anything is up there. Planes or balloons they say. Some have posted the videos on you-tube but the rest of us know this is a waste of time because the sceptics will say we are using drugs, we are mistaken and there is a logical explination. Not even reverse engineering could make something like the 3 ufo's we keep seeing. The human body could not pull the g force that these crafts are pulling and the military has other places to test thier secret aircraft. Again, like my first story about the dam, black helicopters are present and interested in what's going on in the Katy, Texas over the last 2 months. Maybe something in our water has made the hole community go mad. Google katy texas ufo and read for youself before you you start casting stones.
