Wednesday, August 12,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 5 A OPINION Tips to stay healthy and happy Did you know... That drinking ice water forces your system to rev up your metabo- lism to keep the body's temperature from dropping? It's the ice you add to the water that makes all the differ- ence. If you drink eight 12-ounce glasses of ice water a day, your body will burn an additional 200 calories. To keep your fingers from turn- ing green, always apply hand cream before wearing your rings. This forms a barrier between the skin and the metal....To keep your lips moist and soft, brush them with your tooth- brush to get rid of the dead skin; to keep them from drying out, slick a bit of honey on your lips. Not only is honey rich in moisturizers, but it also provides a protective barrier. To revive tired muscles and stimulate blood flow, place a plastic water bottle on the floor, take off your shoes and gently roll your foot over it from your heel to your toes. Repeat wit...

Publius Xuereb set foot on American soil for the first time ever when he came to visit a friend of his, the then Catholic diocese bishop in Fort Worth. "He was a priest from Sicily who I'd known in Malta," Xuereb said. "When he invited me to come here for vacation, I agreed." Thirty years later, Xuereb is still here. "It's been a long vacation," he said, with a laugh. This particular leg of Xuereb's "vacation" is being spent as the spiritual leader of The Colony's Holy Cross Catholic Church. Before his arrival at the 850-family member church in 1996, Xuereb spent time with and lent energy to parishes in Wichita Falls, Fort Worth and Pilot Point. "Wherever I was sent, it was to build and renovate, or to strengthen them if they had financial problems," he said. The ...

Councilman A1 Garcia will be at the conference to proclaim Saturday as Victory Over Violence Day. Among the presenters will be Laura Minze of The Family Place in Dallas, who will discuss the psycho- logical aspects of violence. "Hope- fully, she will give people clues as to what do you look for," Manning said. "What kind of signs do they give? Because they do give signs." Later, Vincent Gaddis of Youth Believing in Change will discuss what a community can do, using the example of what his organization has done in Dallas.

City Council voted on July 6 to settle those lawsuits and grant specific use per- mits for all three stores. "Both attorneys said that there was no federal jurisdiction on the issue, that I was acting as a private citizen and this is my right to free speech," said Watts. "This was the next step in a citizen's right to free speech." The appearance by Watts, Kovatch and three other city resi- dents prompted Judge Don Windle to call a full hearing on the matter at 9 a.m. on Tuesday at Probate Court. Meanwhile, Office Creek vice president Jeff Stone, the point person for the Artie store, expressed his dis- pleasure over Watts' action. Office Creek's attorney, Henry J. Ackels of the firm of Ackels & Ackels, went farther in a letter dated last Thursday to Smith that unknown sources pro- vide...

He reasoned that he was the very first restaurant in The Colony, population about 4,000. And he was able to beat his competition, Pizza Inn, by open- ing his shop two hours earlier. But business for Culverhouse during the first couple of weeks was slow. "Everyone here thought I'd be so busy, they stayed away," he said, with a chuckle. Eventu- ally business picked up, how- ever. And Larry's eventually became the place for folks to meet, greet and eat. Even with the development of the city's west-side fast-food eateries, Larry's remains a draw for much of the populace. "He has a real loyal clientele over there," said Bill Mann...

Coach Tommy Briggs' 1998 squad - which is rated 18th in the area by The Dallas Morning News -will practice today, Thursday, Friday and Satur- day in shorts before completing the uniform. Briggs said the Cougars will be doing almost everything they can without actually making contact. "We'll work on conditioning, the kicking game, routes and timing stuff - play polish," Briggs said. "We'll review a lot of the things from spring and pick up where we left off." One thing that won't concern Briggs is the triple-digit temperatures that are expected to lin- ger through the week.

Yet two residen- tial developments that have been in town for awhile quietly continue to build homes and sell them. Ridgepointe, located just west of Main Street and north of 121, and Stewart Peninsula, which abuts Stewart Creek Park, are seeing strong sales and continued interest from home buyers intrigued by the possi- bility of living in The City by the Lake. Even more intriguing about these two developments are the odds that both developers faced when they first came to town. "When we started this, the inves- tors didn't have a single market study group or single banker that believed we could go in and sell against Centex (formerly Fox & Jacobs, the company that...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, August 19,1998 EDITORIAL THE COURIER'S OPINION Legislature should help growing ISDs The Texas legislature doesn't go back in session until January, but state representatives and senators may do well to start thinking about how the education funding formula punishes taxpayers who just happen to live in school districts in which most of the growth is residential. And the Lewisville Independent School District is the fastest-growing district in the state. As detailed in the story on Page 1 A, the state decreases the amount of funding per student as the district's valuation increases. The theory is, the more property tax you get, the more money you have for schools. That doesn't quite fly. A popular cliche among baseball broadcasters is that a poorly hit infield single looks the same as a line drive in the box score. To the state education funding formula, a dollar of added residential value is the same as a dollar of added value...

8A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, August 19,1998 Taxes (Continued from Page 1 A) raises of 4 to 6 percent, depending on level. In addition, the opening two new elementary schools this year, as well as enough new students to open two more, have required the addition of200 teachers. With that, state fund- ing has been reduced from $1,449 per student to $1,229. That's because the district's prop- erty values rose $700 million in the past year. The state, Shaw said, there- fore "assumes we have more money to spend." But what the state formula doesn't take into account is that in the case of the LISD and other simi- lar districts, the property values are being increased largely by a housing- market boom. That means more kids coming in. "The state doesn't take into ac- count growth districts," said Super- intendent Clayton Downing. "They say we don't need as many teachers. But how do they know that unless they examine what causes the values to go up." For example, ...

South of Highway 121 are 800 planned new homes in the part of Piano that's in the LISD. The 3,000 homes planned for the Bum Bright family's Castle Hills directly across 121 from The Colony. And about 12,000 apartments slated for the Aus- tin Ranch development. That's 6,200 new homes in the LISD that could go up in the next one to six years - within a five-mile ra- dius of The Colony alone. Most of those homes will have kids - if not immediately, soon. Then there's Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, the part of Carrollton around Hebron Road west of Old Denton. That's why, Downing believes, the $160 million bond election that LISD voters will decide on Septem- ber 12 is crucial. "It's necessary because we had more than 2,300 new students this year - that's about four elementary schools," Downing said. "The growth is not goin...

If he happens to be a political-science major at college now, it may be because he began getting his edu- cation in politics while Jie was still in the womb. That's because Adams was born on January 19,1977-the first baby born to a resident of The Colony after citizens voted four days earlier, 459-37, to incorporate the Fox & Jacobs devel- opment as a city. Though the timing of his birth is a nice historical fact, what's more significant is that his mother was Linda Adams - a woman who spent the last few months of her pregnancy leading the fight for incorpo- ration of the city. It was not an easy battle. Though Fox & Jacobs o...
