OUTSTANDING All-Star time: Mike Williams, the just-graduated stalwart of The Colony High School football team, will play his last high-school game - or first college game, whichever way you want to look at it - next Tuesday at the Texas High School Coaches Association All- Star Football game at Rice Sta- dium in Houston. Williams, the District 5-5A defensive player of the year, will play for the North team coached by Flower Mound Marcus' Que Brittain. OUTRAGEOUS Watch that money: It doesn't quite yet constitute a major out- break, but at least two local busi- nesses have reported receiving counterfeit bills in the past week. Wal-Mart reported to police that a bogus $100 bill was received, and Mail n' More also reported re- ceiving fake money. Police said the Wal-Mart case was given to the U.S. Secret Service, as all such incidents are. However, at least one local bank, Guaranty Nation...

V Photo by Teresa Sidwejl Sharon Rutherford, vocational adjustment coordinator at The Colony High School, discusses her program at The Colony Chamber of Commerce luncheon last Wednesday at the Egg Roll House. By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor There's little doubt that many people can view a visit to the dentist as something less exciting than clean- ing out a septic tank. But there is good news for area residents who find they need teeth re- moved, fillings replaced or pearly brights shined. The Colony's dental community has very strong roots. By her own estimation, Jo Ann Thiel (for- merly Williams) was the la...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 22,1998 THE COURIER'S OPINION Take advantage of public hearings In the next nine days residents of The Colony will have their chances to voice their opinions on one new issue facing the city and one old one. Both have everything to do with how citizens spend their time. On Thursday, the Community Development Corporation (4B) board will conduct a hearing concerning recreational activities and facilities. Obvi- ously, the prime topic of discussion is likely to be the proposed purchase of land from JNC Enterprises for a community recreation complex that would include athletic fields, a community center, hike-and-bike trails and the like. Mayor Mary Blair Watts said at the special City Council/Parks Board/ 4B Board work session last week that some people told her they felt too intimidated to speak up against the project. They shouldn't — nor should people be afraid to speak up in support of it. The 4B board - and the Council...

Not included in the income are revenues from the city hotel/motel tax, which will start flowing into the coffers during the next year as Com- fort Suites and Budget Suites open more than 400 rooms between De- cember and March. The budget includes a 62-day contingency fund balance for both the general fund and the utility fund. On the expenditure side, Lambert is suggesting eschewing a road-bond election for the next three years be- cause of soaring concrete prices, in- stead establishing a street-mainte- nance program, for which a little more than $376,000 is in the prelimi- nary 1999 budget. That includes funds for a new five-person street- maintenance crew. "We'll fix potholes, do joint ex- pansion and the like in lieu of a bond election," Lambert said. "This should get us over the now 40 percent in- crease in the price of con...

Located just north of The Colony Shopping Cen- ter and right in TCI's front yard, this shack has long been known for selling cold treats during the summer. On July 1, that shack opened officially as Fenimore's Tropical Snow. Since its opening, Fenimore's has been a veritable beehive of activity. All day long, during the worst of the triple-digit heat, cars pull into the dirt parking lot. When those cars leave, they contain a Sno-Cone order or two. After dark, when the temperature falls all the way to 90 degrees, many people line up at the window for the cool, refreshing cone or cup of shaved ice drenched with flavored syrup. Many sit at tables that have been set up outside the shack, placed there so...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 29,1998 EDITORIAL THE COURIER'S OPINION Residents' choice: Save water or pay You, the taxpayer, are left with a choice. Two weeks ago, City Manager Lanny Lambert instituted a voluntary odd-even water-rationing system after the city set a record by consuming 7.1 million gallons of water on July 12. Residents responded by setting yet another record on July 19, when the city system pumped 7.22 million gallons. Now, the word "voluntary" means you can decide whether to follow the request or not. It is your right to keep your sprinkler running all day on Sunday if you want. But as with any decision, you need to know the poten- tial consequences. First, of course, is that your water bills will skyrocket for the amount of water you use. Lambert said some people can expect bills of several hun- dred dollars. Between air conditioners running overtime and increased wa- ter use, utility costs in August could come close to the mortga...

A friend of mine is an employee in that building. We have discussed this matter many times. I would like to share what I know to be some of the facts about this issue. There is not a problem with hav- ing an office at City Hall for the mayor and Council to use. As I un- derstand, there is one planned for the new facility. I also understand that there has been such an office for quite some time, unless space needs for employees prevented. The problem is that this office is not for the Council in any way ex- cept a place to pick up their mail. It seems that the office is decorated with the mayor's personal china and with family pictures. Th...

Lambert had proposed hiring only three city workers - an assis- tant city marshal, an Inspections De- partment customer-service represen- tative and a beginning mechanic for the Fleet Maintenance Department- using the criteria that they would al- most pay for themselves in increased revenue or reduced expenses. But Councilman Bill Longo's long-standing plea to hire two new firefighters was heard by his col- leagues, who decided to allocate $37,000 for the new employees, one of which will be hired on January 1, the other on April 1. Fire Chief Van Morrison said the additions will bring each of the three Fire Department shifts up to the optimum six people. The "dweeb" that Council members kept jokingly referring to is a com- puter expert who will manage the...
