Wednesday, July 8,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 5A COMMUNITY Area parvo cases seem to be on the rise Photo by Brandy Moore Work has begun on the traffic light to be erected at the intersection of Main Street and Cougar Alley. The signal has been a long-term wish for the city, and will mark the first signal on Main Street between Highway 121 and South Colony Boulevard. City officials hope the light will be operational by the beginning of school on August 11. Storyteller plans library program By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor A higher-than-usual incidence of the canine parvovirus has area vet- erinarians warning dog owners to make sure their pets have proper vac- cinations and are kept isolated from stray dogs. "I've seen a couple of dogs dur- ing the last week with parvo," said local veterinarian Candy Mays, owner of the Animal Care Clinic of The Colony. In addition, Mays re- cently read an article describing cases of both distemper and parvo at the Garla...

6A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 8,1998 Some rain, lots of action Despite a couple of rain showers that cooled off the day, many resi- dents of The Colony took part in at least some of the myriad activities that took place on Saturday - the Fourth of July. From a near-record turnout for the Liberty 5K run, to the estimated 2,500 who lined the route of the an- nual Independence Day Parade, to the packed house at Cougar Stadium to witness the city's first fireworks display in almost a decade, people turned out for Liberty by the Lake. A late-afternoon shower did douse those taking advantage of food and crafts booths at Stewart Creek Park; and two downpours left the fireworks crowd scurrying for cover. Turnout at the park was somewhat sparse. But the color and pageantry of the fireworks show left the citi- zens wanting more - and anticipat- ing next year.

While praising the concept plan for the complex - which was unveiled just before the economic- development one-cent sales tax elec- tion in January - some councilmen questioned the priorities for recreation spending and some of the conditions that JNC placed on the offer. No action was taken on Monday. Council has planned a workshop on the matter next Monday. In addition, the Community Development Corpo- ration (4b board) is planning a pub- lic hearing on July 23. JNC offered to sell the land, lo- cated north of the planned Memorial Drive east and west of Paige Road, for $2,712,000. JNC would also dedi- cate another 28 acres for use in the complex and two acres next to Bridges Cemetery for use as a water tower. In return, JNC asks the city to share in the cost of building Memo- rial Drive from Blair Oaks to the east- ern end of the complex and Paige Road between Memor...

They are now off the hook, as well. City Manager Lanny Lambert said that the 18-month ordeal did not cost the city any money because Texas Municipal League insurance covered attorneys fees. The TML would not have covered any appeals. There is a question, however, as to whether the city's insurance premi- ums will increase. Watts explained her reluctant vote for the settlement by saying, "The re- ality is, the federal judge is like a 300- pound gorilla. He can sit anyplace he wants." The mayor said that she will continue to fight for legislation at the state level that would allow cities to control their own destinies concern- ing liquor stores. "I'm glad the cloud over the city is gone," Henville-Shannon said. She added, though, that she voted against the settlement "bec...

Flower Mound Marcus Renee Metivier (bottom) takes the tape to win the women's division. Forty-five minutes before the 13th annual Liberty 5K was sched- uled to begin on Saturday, race di- rector Don Beckel looked up at the graying sky and expressed his wish that the rain would hold off until at least the 8 a.m. starting horn. If not, the near-record field of more than 500 runners would not have been able to inaugurate the race's new Stewart Peninsula course. Most runners liked the scenery of the course, but the winner didn't believe it was conducive to speed. "It's a rolling course; it has a lot of curves," said Keith Johnson of Coppell, whose winning ti...

This was the thought of Dave Fox, chair- man of the board at Fox & Jacobs, in a 1985 interview conducted by The Colony Public Libraiy. Before there was a city, before there was fire station and before there was a popu- lation in what is now known as The Colony, Texas, there was just a mast of desolate, unincorporated land Frisco's extra-territorial jurisdiction and containing only two mobile homes with two occupants. This was the country. Dallas was a far-away city, but the suburbs were growing north and affordable housing was sprouting up all over the country lands. It wouldn't be long before development came north toward Lewisvil...

THE COURIER'S OPINION Park deal good one, but is it right one? On the surface, the proposal to purchase 113 acres of land from JNC Enterprises for $2.7 million and use it as a recreational complex is a good one. There is no doubt that this cities' youth sports facilities are lacking. There's a reason that The Colony Chamber of Commerce softball tourna- ment is the only non-scholastic tourney of any significance in this city On the other hand, JNC seems to be asking for a little too much in return for the sweetheart land price, and the plans do seem to provide for the needs of those kids involved with youth sports exclusively - which excludes a large percentage of children in this town and all adults who don't play soft- ball or coach from the benefits of the project. We believe the city should go ahead with the purchase, provided the city's additional costs are negotiated down and that plans be developed for facilities in the complex that will serve those not involved in youth sport...

Wednesday, July 15,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier COMMUNITY Several local venues offering variety of live entertainment By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor In an effort to keep residents in The Colony for entertainment, area restaurants are adding new meaning to the words "eat, drink and be merry." As restaurants in The Colony continue to grow, so do entertain- ment offerings. Some of the entertainment is of the sports variety, ranging from darts competitions (at CJ's), to billiards (at O.B.'s Pub) to volleyball contests (outside of Nick's Sports Grill). Then there is the non-sports-ori- ented, listen-while you-eat-and-sip type of entertainment. For places like Nick's, O.B.'s and Zydeco's Cajun Kitchen, this means karaoke. It can mean bona-fide, live entertainment. While the Bistro on Main has long promoted singer J.W. Smith on Fri- days and Saturdays, other restaurants are offering their own acts. CJ'Sj which is kitty-corner to Bistro on North Colony, offe...

6A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 15,1998 COMMUNITY Heat (Continued from Page 1A) although City Manager Lanny Lam- bert on Monday called for voluntary rationing. "Other than a bad taste in the drinking water (from well waters in town), we're doing OK in terms of water usage," said Kenneth Leverich, superintendent of public works. The city did, however, set a record Sunday by using 7.1 million gallons of water. The largest threat in this drought situation is grass fires. As a result, Denton County has instituted a county-wide ban against outdoor burning. According to Deputy Fire Chief Dave Wallace, The Colony pro- hibits open burning and use of fire- works year round, anyway, meaning not much will change with the ban. "That ban does apply to cigarettes, however," said Wallace, who is also the city's fire marshal, The Colony Fire Department. "If someone throws a cigarette outside a window of a car, that's a violation of the rule." Also impacted by the coun...

Wednesday, July 15,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 7 A Water (Continued from Page 1A) Stated simply, The Colony currently pays $340,586 per year to Dallas in demand charges, plus a volume charge based on the actual amount used. If, even for one day, the city bought 3 million gallons of Dallas water, the annual demand charge would rise to $408,075 - a $67,489-per-year in- crease for one day's overage. "To keep the cost low, we must use the well water," Lambert said, even though that water has a much higher mineral content than Dallas water. For example, well water has more than 12 times the sodium, eight times the chlorides, six times the al- kalinity, almost seven time the dis- solved solids, almost five times the sulfate and more than seven times the magnesium. Even the levels of min- erals in the well water is safe, how- ever, Lambert said. But because Sunday's usage hit 7.1 million gallons -1.3 million gal- lons over the previous record set three years ago - Coun...

The other three years, there was no city - only Fox & Jacobs and a homeowners' association. Even today, there are visible re- mind- ers of the time when the city took care of public safety, roads, zoning and the like, while the MUD was responsible for all the utilities and garbage pickup. In fact, if you look beneath the sur- face, it's almost as if the August 1987 merger never happened.
