Outstanding Traffic heaven: A call came Into City Hall recently from a man who lives in Piano and com- mutes daily to Fort Worth for his job. It seems as though during his long trek, in the heart of rush hour, he actually enjoys traveling on highway 121 through The Colony. The police, he noted, do an excellent job of controlling traffic in the area. In addition to giving this city another positive boost, this driver's attitude could give us all something to think about the next time we're stuck in traffic on 121. Outrageous Traffic hell: While traffic flow on Main Street and North Colony Boulevard has eased somewhat thanks to road widening, other problem spots remain. These involve roads in and out of The Colony. It can take drivers, for exa...

BUSINESS New homes could spur east side retail development By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor The 1300 houses that will become part of the Legends housing develop- ment east of Paige Road will add more than residents to The Colony. Accord- ing to experts, once the rooftops are up and people living under them, highway 121 north of Paige Road should experience a huge growth in retail development. In addition, the retail areas located on the corners of South Colony Boulevard and Paige Road should receive a significant boost from the development, which broke ground this past spring. "Retailers tend to come behind roof tops," said Joe Fox, an engineer with JNC Enterprises. JNC is a prop- erty broker that owns much of the frontage land on highway 121 north of Paige Road- City Planner Harry Persaud agreed Fox's assessment, adding that 1300 homes so close to the highway will help build visibility in that area. "There will be a good market for those homes because they're right there...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, June 17,1998 EDITORIAL TAAS Scores Offer Good News - Kind Of The Texas Academic Assessment and Achievement (TAAS) results for 1998 show pretty good news for students attending schools in The Colony. On the grade school and middle school level, much improvement has been made on both reading and mathematics scores. B.B. Owen students, for example, should be commended for their 100 percent rating in math skills among the third graders there who took the tests. And Carney El- ementary School fifth graders showed a marked improvement from last year's ranking of 84 in reading to this year's rank of 96. On the flip side, however, grade 10 scores from The Colony High School in all areas either stagnated or went down a little from 1997. This decrease could be viewed as somewhat disappointing, especially since the averages did increase from 1996 to 1997. In the tenth grade material is a little tougher in the classrooms and, given the l...

It just isn't likely to happen. But for Lisa Moore, a long-time resident of The Colony, marrying music and medicine on a radio show isn't impossible at all. That's exactly what she does weekly on her show, "Health Views With Lisa Moore, R.N." She has been combining the two, and quite successfully, since March 6, when her show debuted. Each Friday morning, from 8 to 9 a.m. on KTCY-FM ("Praise 104.9"), a new Christian radio station. Moore talks with those in the know about all kinds of medical topics ranging from the common cold to curable cancer.

Several local churches have stepped in to help parents in this situ- ation with vacation bible schools. These summer schools have one goal - to teach children religion in an en- tertaining, exciting way. Both The Colony Church of Christ on Page Road and The Colony Park Baptist Church on North Colony Bou- levard have chosen fishing as their focus. The Church of Christ will present "Hooked on Jesus" to ages two years old to fifth grade. "The age groups will travel around with a fishing guide," said Susan Mathews, co-director of the program. A small fishing village will be set up with different crafts and activities pertaining to the bible story of the night. "The kids get to make their own...

The Colony won 14-0 in the first game and led 20-2 in the second. Chris Williams, The Colony's pitcher in the first game, had a no- hitter through the entire five inning game. He pitched eight strike-outs, three errors and had one walk. Josh Tarrer continued his phe- nomenal hitting season, going three for four. Teammate Chris Schindle also made good use of his bat, going two for two, with a home run. Also making his mark on the Northwest Garland defense was batter Dave Alderton, who went three for three. Things didn't get much better for Northwest Garland in the second game. Under the carefully managed pitching o...

That summer he returned to UNT - this time to participate in the University's Intensive Math Institute. By the time he returned to school for his final year in middle school, Lakeview had no more math classes for him. No problem - he simply walked to The Colony High School to study geometry. In addition to attending the uni- versity between his seventh and eight grade, Madson took the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) upon recom- mendation of a teacher. The SAT is normally given to high school seniors and is used extensively by colleges and universities to determine accep- tance of incoming students. When Masdon took the SAT, he received a total score of 980 out of a possible 1600 - high enough to receive state recognition and a certificate at a...

Hesslebach added that, given the amount of money he and his wife were planning to spend on the home, they had done a great deal of research about the material and were aware of its hazards if installed incorrectly. Some members of council and one resident expressed various concerns about the exterior finish. Councilman David Stanwick noted that, given ground shifts in the soil, cracks could occur and create aesthetic problems. In addition, he said, the exterior could chip over time. Compare that, he noted, to the durability of brick, which sustains cracks and soil shifts without as much wear and tear. Meanwhile, Councilman Bill Longo was more concerned about looks of stucco versus brick, ac- knowledging that in a location like Eastvale - an area that has a variety of architecture - a house with an EFIS exterior is less...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, June 24,1998 EDITORIAL Time to cut losses over liquor stores There comes a time in every fight when the damages that could be in- flicted by continuing outweigh the benefits. The ruling on summary judg- ment by U.S. District Court Judge Paul Brown in Centennial's suit against the city is that time in The Colony's battle against liquor stores on Highway 121. Were it simply the simple matter of a verdict against the city, there may have still been some merit in this City Council continuing the appeals pro- cess. But Brown's wording in his written ruling left no doubt about his feelings: The Colony had no right to deny Centennial a specific use permit for a liquor store under the guidelines of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code. Brown used the word "illegal" numerous times in his ruling. That's very rare in summary judgment cases. The end result is obvious: Brown will award steep damages to JWV and Associates, the Centennial-rela...

It was a hot Saturday night, and the house will filled with little girls giggling and whispering little girl secrets after a day of soccer champi- onships. Along with them, before a TV that none were watching, were their three lady chaperones. At those times, I had found it more advantageous to disappear in my room and watch my own TV, as I couldn't hear much of anything anyway. Usually in those gatherings, the females stay up half the night, so I usually knock off and go to bed. I didn't feel in the greatest sense of health due to my infection in my ears that has caused me to be some- what anti-social since I'd gone deaf during that process. It had been a punky kind of day anyway, and I had been feeling a bit strange all day than normal. Figured it was just the Texas heat, even if I had been inside all day. I had laid down w...

The Hesselbachs, in their quest for their dream home, have now found themselves unwilling catalysts forcing a change to Section 17-106. If passed, the section would permit a 70 percent minimum of "brick, natu- ral stone or EIFS" on home exteri- ors, provided the EIFS was con- structed under stringent guidelines. According to Planning Director Harry Persaud, changing the ordi- nance was the only way the Hesselbachs could have the EIFS exterior on the home. "I checked on the possibility of a variance and was told I couldn't do it," he said. "I then informed the Hesselbachs of the pro- cedure to change an ordinance." The Hesselbachs, however, weren't aware the procedure would take so long. The matter was brought to the Planning an...
