10A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable SPORTS Wednesday, February 24,1999 New coach, new attitude spring team into action By DAVE SORTER Staff Writer The biggest improvement in The Colony High School baseball team this year might have nothing to do directly with hitting, throwing or catching. It might be all in the mind. "The biggest surprise I've seen is the team attitude and confidence," said first-year head coach Mike Eiffert. "In years past, they second-guessed them- selves as to their ability to get on the field and compete and win. This year's team isn't doing that." And if the players don't second guess themselves, a team with nine seniors and four returning starters will put themselves in position to better last season's 8-17-2 record - which equaled the school record for victo- ries but ended on a down note after a 5-6-2 non-district slate. Eiffert truly believes his team will compete for a District 5-5 A playoff berth. "I think we have a team that can compete for ...

However, the Corps' policy on such construction will probably mean that the Wynnewood boat slips could not be placed at the location desired by Matthews South- west, the developer of the area. And the location change would add about $1 million to the construction costs. A Water-Related Recreation Use Study by the Corps, in which The Colony and Matthews Southwest partici- pated financially, determined that 2,754 additional slips not previou...

The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, March 10,1999 OPINION SCHOOLS & YOUTH LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To my fallen brothers My heart is saddened by your deaths; you left us much too early. Mere words cannot describe the loss we feel. As firefighters, you dedicated your lives to comfort and help oth- ers. You quietly and professionally went about your lives, where honor, integrity, honesty, and loyalty were not just spin words. You gave of your- selves and asked for nothing in re- turn, except to be able to continue your giving ways. I pray our elected officials, both Republican and Democrat, Liberal and Conservative, from City Hall to The White House, will take notice and attempt to follow your examples. Although you've left us, we will continue on in this very honorable pro- fession. You will forever live in our hearts and minds. As before, we will always step up and answer the call. Rest easy my fallen brothers. Michael Barrett Dall...

Wednesday, March 10,1999 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 7 A COMMUNITY GM's hot new performers By CASEY WILLIAMS Staff Writer There was a time, in the 1950s and 1960s, when the words "Chevrolet" and "Pontiac" meant PERFORMANCE. Names like Im- pala and Bonneville were held in the highest reverence among auto enthusiasts and com- muters alike. In the ensuing decades, that image has tarnished ever so slightly. Along with the 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo, the new 2000 Impala and 2000 Pontiac Bonneville hope to show the world that affordability, sensible transportation, and performance can still be found in one great package. 2000 Pontiac Bonneville Recently introduced at the 1999 Chicago Auto Show, the 2000 Pontiac Bonneville in- tends to be a tremendous automobile. Upon first glance, you will have no doubt this is a Pontiac. From its Rageous Concept-inspired side molding and wheels, to its twin-port grille, to its spotlight fog lamps, this is a se- dan that means business. The me...

Unfortunately, the open confrontation of these sublevel agendas create fric- tion and subtle manipulation of oth- ers in order to attach to an authority, position, or responsibility that will wield powers on which to act in ways that are derisive or destructive of the total good of the total population. Motives and reputations are sig- naled as negative resulting in disrup- tion and emotionalism not even basi- cally associated with an overall city purpose, employee or citizen.

According to coach Stephanie Moore, it was no secret that TCHS wanted to beat Marcus in the worst way. "I was very proud of them," Moore stated. The game was played during a strong wind. With the wind to their backs the Cougars' Holly Dillard scored to make it 1-0 at half time. TCHS received an emotional lift to start the second half as regular net-minder Raina H...

12A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, March 10,1999 SPORTS Cougars prepare for district with convincing showing By DAVE SORTER Staff Writer One thing The Colony High School baseball team has proven dur- ing the first two weeks of the 1999 season is that it knows how to bounce back from defeat. That was proven last weekend at the Fossil Creek Tournament at Haltom and Richland, where the Cou- gars regained their composure from an opening-round loss to win three more games and win the consolation title and improve their record to 7-2. TCHS did not have an auspicious start in the tournament opener on Thursday against Keller, which would go on to lose the meet's cham- pionship game to Arlington Lamar. After TCHS scored one run in the top of the first inning, the Indians ex- ploded for four runs in the bottom of the first and added two more in the second and another in the third. Though The Colony would score single runs in the fourth and fifth in- nings, it was not e...

Now the focus will turn toward pre- paring for the possibility that external systems won't be ready when the clock strikes midnight on the years beginning with "19." To that end, City Manager Lanny Lambert on Monday ap- pointed a new committee, which he will chair, that will evaluate what he calls "the big four" - water, electricity, telephone and gas. That list could be expanded to include cable TV. This new panel will discuss what equipment and software the city might need to overcome any problems in those areas and determine staffing needs for New Year's Eve. Clark's committee did a preliminary study of those external fun...

Wednesday, March 17,1999 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier Water (Continued from page 1A) Among the recommendations: ■ Provide a refund of the inspec- tion fee if a homeowner voluntarily re- places sinks and toilets with water-con- serving, "low-flow" fixtures. Faucets and showerheads could not distribute more than 2.5 gallons per minute, and toilets could not consume more than 1.6 gallons per flush. These levels already are required of new construction. ■ Adopt the xeriscape concept of landscaping, which combines plan- ning, design, soil analysis, use of cer- tain grasses and plants, efficient irri- gation and use of mulch. For ex- ample, appropriate grasses would be Bermuda, Buffalo, St. Augustine, Tall Fescue and Zoysia. Mayor Mary Blair Watts suggested a Texas Agri- cultural Extension agent be brought to The Colony to present a program on this concept. This concept would be voluntary for homeowners and business people, but the committee is proposing requiring it for pu...

It's hard to believe, I know, but Mike Catt, Lord Mogul of the Digi- tal Magic Factory, mentioned to me once that I, me, was a 'rabble rouser.' That made me pout and made Mike laugh. He's always laughin' ya know. We were discussing the ins and outs of the then-political scene in The Colony. I agree that my own political smarts wouldn't ever get me into Poynter Business College to success- fully complete Politics and Running For Office 101. I also admit that making money was never one of my stalwart talents. I also have found no talent for being invited into anyone's 'inner circle'. Admittedly, there are, and have been, times in which others may have considered me to be outspoken— even maybe on a number of issues on which 'insider knowledge' cer- tainly was not provided. But that is life—and politics. It.is certain that anyone who en- ters any level of a politic...
