Former Mayor Bill Manning is running for the job he held from 1990 to 1997, when Watts beat him, and Councilman Dave Kovatch said last week that he is a candidate.

As a result, she continued, "for the first time, the TML is taking on the liquor industry" by supporting reso- lutions encouraging the Legislature to grant cities control over liquor-store placement that is currently forbidden by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code. Watts painted a picture of The Colony as a foreboding place to be in 1997. "Two years ago, when you elected me to lead this city - and some people seem to forget I didn't appoint myself; 2,000 people elected me - we were without a city manager, the city planner had left for another job, there was no city engineer, no economic development director, and City Hall was in a lock-down posi- tion."

Today, the Ford Motor Company is buying up the world, building some of the best cars on the planet, and witnessing rumors Nissan is about to be swal- lowed up by the newly formed DaimlerChrysler.

Turner last Friday pulling out a 61-49 win in overtime. The visitors had several chances to end the contest in regula- tion but the Cougars used a mix of good defense, along with some luck forcing the extra stanza. Kevin Wil- son made two free throws for the Li- ons with 40.2 seconds left tying the game at 47-47. What followed was some wild action, particularly several good scoring opportunities by the visitors, however neither team would score again until overtime. With 13.3 seconds to play Turner's Kevin Wil- son drove the baseline heading for what appeared to be an easy lay-up and the go ahead basket. In what would later prove to be the play of the game, Jason Hammock came from no where to block Wilson's shot out of bounds. After a s...

Clark prefers to use the violent-crime rate, instead of overall crime rate, for comparison purposes. "Violent crime would have the most effect on an individual's feel- ing of safety and is a percentage of the total crime reported and not as much a factor of population," Clark wrote. However, even on an overall basis, "The Colony continues to be one of the safer cities in our area and lower than Piano, Carrollton and Lewisville in the rate of crime per 100,000 population." The Colony's rate per 100,000 is 3,443, a sharp drop from the 4,776 in 1990. "Overall crime is lower than 1990, especially when considering an increasing population," Clark wrote. As in past years, the most crime- ridden part of the city is the area north of North Colony Boulevard and just west of Main Street - the neighbor- hood best known for its duplexes...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, February 24,1999 OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 'Full-Time' mayor Regarding Mayor Watts an- nouncement for re-election, I was surprised how she felt it was good for her to run for a second term. For start- ers, as I recall, Mary Blair Watts said in the first election campaign that she only intended to serve one term. Sec- ondly, her accomplishments as the first "full-time" mayor are lacking. She ran to prevent the liquor stores from "lining Highway 121" - three are opening on Highway 121 now and funds were incurred from legal ac- tions by those businesses. She talked about a bowling alley and/or movie complex coming to The Colony - we have none on the foreseeable horizon as I know. She talks about the city hall in a lock down position prior to her serving, while she was the one who cut transmission of channel 6 for a period of time. She takes credit for the access to 121 at Standridge and Morningstar Drive, but these were cons...
