Wednesday, September 2, 1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier SCHOOLS/COMMUNITY Freshmen begin TCHS ride by dealing with crowds, size 3* <. Photo by Shawn Moore Leslie Wilkerson, a member of The Colony Junior ROTC class, munches a hot dog during the JROTC's beginning-of-the-school-year picnic on Saturday at Stewart's Creek Park. It was the first day of school, and everyone had those first-day jitters. So did the 900-plus freshmen who enrolled in The Colony High School this year. The halls are sandwiched with little freshmen. They scamper about the halls trying to find their place in a whole new world. The stairwells are packed with students; it's like I- 35 in rush hour. As the seniors wind down and end their journey through school, the freshmen are just beginning theirs. This year the seniors didn't even get lockers because TCHS is only built for a maximum of 2,000 people. It is to the point where students are get- ting slapped with tickets for block- ing crowded plac...

Roll call be- gins at 5 p.m. sharp in the Perfoming Arts Center. As a constant reminder to those parents who prefer to follow the buses for away events; please, do not break up the bus convoy by driving or cutting in-between the buses. It creates an extremely dangerous situ- ation for the bus drivers and their pas- sengers. Directions to the stadium with maps available through the band booster web site 'http://welcome.to/ tcbbc'.

Colony Courier SPORTS Section B Wednesday, September 2,1998 Cougars start with 'old-style' Nimitz By DAVE SORTER Managing Editor Old-time football, meet new-fangled football. A clash of the traditional form of hard-nosed, in-your- face football and the high-tech style of the '90s is on the menu for The Colony High School's 1998 season-opener against Irving Nimitz at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Irving Schools Stadium. "They're known for being a real hard-nosed-type football team," said Cougars coach Tommy Briggs of Nimitz. "They have nothing real fancy. They'll come at us, attack us, and we'll see what happens." The Cougars, meanwhile, will begin their second year in the one-back, pass-oriented offense that has become the flavor of the late '90s. Quarterback Brent Briggs, tailback Fletcher Smith and a large steering committee of wide receivers will attempt to duplicate last year's 200-plus-yards of offense per game, while the TCHS defense will rely on experience at linebacker and a rap- i...

I'm the new kid (actu- ally sports writer) on the block at The Colony Courier. Although my main function at The Courier will be to cover sports teams and events as assigned, I hope from time to time to be able to ask for your comments and opinions re- garding sports, in general as it affects our city. In order for this to work, your participation is required. For my first topic I want to hear from you regard- ing the proposed sports and commu- nity recreation complex to be built in The Colony. Here are the questions I would like for you to answer: 1.) Are you in favor of or opposed to this concept? 2.) If yes, do you favor the JNC property (let's pretend that it's still a viable site), which is located just north of Highway 121 between Blair Oaks and east of Paige Road, the Rich Lewis Sports In The Citv Wynnewood development or some- where els...

Knowing that the costs of operat- ing the city's water and wastewater systems have increased significantly since the last water-rate increase in 1992 and will continue to rise, those Council members spent most of Mon- day night's work session trying to find ways to pare the expenditures pro- jected by Finance Director Tony Johnston and the consulting firm DMG-Maximus, Inc. The revised water-rate plan sub- mitted on Monday contained two options for residential customers: ■ A 20 percent increase in the monthly base charge (which includes the first 2,000 gallons) from $10 to $12.01 while droppi...

"We want to provide quality drinking water, but we don't want our residents to have to sell their house because the price of water is so high." Said Councilman David Stanwick: "I don't mind having a small percent- age (increase), but I don't think it is 6 percent. It might be i percent." Coun- cilman Bernetta Henville-Shannon added, "I'm not convinced 6 percent is what we need, either." Councilman Bill Longo, however, said the rate hike needed to happen, even if it isn't politically expedient. "I'm up for re-election, and I'd love to say, 'We won't increase your wa- ter rates,' and the voters would love it," he said. "But then I wouldn't be doing my job." The primary question was capital expenditures. Johnston presented a $5 million capital improvements wish list that includes a 20- or 24-inch water main from the Office Creek pump station to North Colony Bou- levar...

I will agree that there are some who are national guard or re- servists residing here. All other resi- dents are civilians be they fire depart- ment, police department, city govern- ment, etc. If you are not subject to the UCMJ you are a CIVILIAN! This ridiculous assumption that police of- ficers are anything otherwise does nothing but drive a further wedge be- tween then and all other residents.

SGP's Ike Akotaobi made two free throws with 1.9 seconds left after getting an offensive rebound. Regardless of the outcome, a gracious Cougar's coach, Tommy Thomas, stated "Well, this is what high school basketball is all about. It's great to be part of it. It was a great game and great for the fans." with a loss, TCHS fell to 18-1, (2-1) while SGP raised their record to 15-3, (3-0).

But getting from point A - the desire to perform there; to point B - the actual performing; was anything but easy. "On Saturday, about 200 people showed up (for the audition)," said Lisa Wright, Ashley's mother. "They called back 20 for auditions (on Sun- day). But what we didn't know is that there had been some people already invited to those call-backs, such as previous performers in the show. So when we got back on Sunday, another 100 people had shown up for call- backs."

The project began, in 1997, however it wasn't until the summer of 1998, with the help of Christie Wilson, a police department employee and college student in search of a work related project for one of her classes, that the survey fi- nally became real. The rating of the department over- all by residents was 66.6 percent Good, though the majority of the businesses rated their performance as Excellent.
