Wednesday, August 26, 1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 3A BUSINESS Josey Lane extension delay holds back new development By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor It seemed like such a simple idea during the late 1980s - extend Josey Lane from the north Carrollton and connect it with Main Street in The Colony. The result would be a six- lane, direct north-south access be- tween the two cities. Best of all, the extension would encourage northward march of com- mercial and residential real estate de- velopment; straight into The Colony. And it would greatly improve the time it takes to get to Trinity Medi- cal Center. The simple idea born during the 1980s has turned into a raging night- mare during the 1990s. Delay after delay continues to plague the pro- posed stretch of road, frustrating resi- dents, landowners and developers alike. "Any delay of this extension sets back everyone," said Rob Farrell, owner of Dallas-based Farrell Prop- erties, which owns and operate...

EDITORIAL In today's world, children need to learn how to learn "Education is a debt due from the present to future generations." - George Peabody Did you hear it? That collective sigh of relief by parents around town that was the result of youth return- ing to the classroom? Perhaps if you didn't hear it, surely you must have noticed the school speed-zone lights that have awakened from a hot sum- mer of mindless bliss. Of course, if you are not aware of the 20-mile-per- hour school zone speed limit, maybe you ought to go back to school for some advanced math instruction; greater than 20 subtracts the sum in your wallet. "Are you ready for the start of school?" I asked one of the neigh- borhood elementary schoolers a couple of weeks ago. "Nope," replied the youngster. "But my mom said she is ready. So I get to stay home and she is going to school for me!" As far as I am concerned, that is quite a novel concept. Evidently, when I was going to school, I was not aware of the program th...

"To put it in simple terms," he said later, "my new contract at work gives me an 11 percent raise over the next three years. With this tax in- crease, I will get 1 percent. My raise will go to the LISD." Lance Lamberton, the other co- chair of the group, called the tax in- crease "unconscionable" and chal- lenged the board to bring in an out- side audit to uncover any "waste, fraud or abuse." "There are a lot of citizens pretty upset by what you've done, and we're going to fight you," he said. After the meeting, Lamberton said, "I don't believe that the district is utilizing resources as efficiently as possible." In asking for an outside audit, which Lamberton hoped would be done voluntarily from someone in the private sector,...

Wednesday, August 26, 1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 7 A Rates (Continued from Page 1A) bring in an estimated $5,662,017, which is $532,721 more than is esti- mated under current rates. The two water-rate proposals were designated "medium" and "large." Both would bring in the same amount of revenue. The differences: The me- dium plan would put more of the bur- den on heavy users and would recover costs and 100 percent of the repay- ment of revenue bonds. The large plan has much higher base rates - in fact, the per-gallon rate would decrease - and would recover all of the outstand- ing Municipal Utility District No. 1 debt in addition to costs and revenue debt service. Under the medium plan, the base rate for a typical residential 5/8-inch line would rise from $10 to $11.84 and still include the first 2,000 gal- lons. The per-thousand-gallon charge up to 15,000 gallons would be $2.51, up from $2.40, while every thousand gallons above 15,000 would cost $3.13, up from...

"I'd come out and hunt at Lewisville Lake all the time when I was in high school," a citizen of Carrollton reflects. "Back then it was just a lake and a farm road." "My dad took me fishing out there every weekend." "That's where I learned how to ski." Then comes the speculation and just plain myth of the lake. "What about the alligators?" "It's the most dangerous lake in Texas, isn't it?" "I heard it's just pure sewage out there." It's hard to believe through all this talk that the lake didn't weigh too heavily in Fox and Jacobs' decision to build in this location. They chose this land for The Colony because it's at a crossroads of t...

Bill Thornton, who is pre- paring to open Flicks Home Video during mid-September in The Colony Square Shopping Center, has anything but "the best of circum- stances" to contend with. Once Thornton hangs out his shingle, he'll be competing with other area video stores, two of which are national chains. In addition, he'll be operating in a part of town that has, for most of its history, been slow to grow from a retail perspective. But these potential roadblocks do not daunt Thornton. The competition doesn't worry him. Although he de- clined to discuss specific marketing plans, he did say he plans to open a store that's a little different than the typical browse-and-rent video stores that exis...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, September 2, 1998 EDITORIAL Cats, crickets and marriage I've been on serious cricket pa- trol the last couple of weeks. It's one of those good-news/bad-news exer- cises that is a direct result of the ex- tended heat. Which caused the clay- inflicted soil in our beloved commu- nity to crack. Which provided con- venient places for the massive birth- rate and swarms of crickets to grow and prosper. During the recent round of odd/ even water rationing, I would duti- fully go out to water the lawn (on the appropriate days, of course) in an effort to keep some semblance of green on the turf. After attaching the sprinkler (with automatic timer and spray-pattern adjustments) to the hose and turning on the water, I no- ticed that hoards of crickets would emerge from the ever-widening cracks in the soil. Now it is true that I am generally not a terrorizer of crickets. I have spent many hours in the country late at night gazing at the s...

Krueger said Tuesday morning that the deal is "a handshake deal," and that he "still has to jump through a lot of hoops" before it is finalized. But by talking with Commissioner Sandy Jacobs - in whose precinct the project is located - and other com- missioners, he knows he has the votes for Commissioners Court approval, though the date that will happen is uncertain. "It's going to get done," Krueger said. "I know I'm good for it, and TU Electric is good for it." The gas line, located near FM 544, needs to be relocated and low- ered because of the weight the six- lane Josey Lane extension will bear on it. The apparent end to the gas line problem staves off another, albeit short-lived, threat to the Josey exten- sion that will connect the Carrollton artery to Main Street in The Colony at Highway 121.

"A friendly one, but we both wanted to be first." The competition she's speaking of was a race to break ground on the building of the Methodist church and The First Baptist Church of The Colony. Since the formation of both congregations in early 1975, they had shared the Central Fire Station.. "The firefighters would take the trucks out in the morning," says Geary, "and the First Baptist members would set up for their services at 9 in the morning. Then we'd come in at 11 and take things down when we were done. It was the only build- ing here." But it was still a working fire station. Tf an alarm went off, then you'd s...
