She continued that campaign before a receptive au- dience at the 33rd annual Institute for Mayors, Council Members and Com- missioners last weekend in College Station.

I was built around 1965, and I stood alone in the vast- ness of a part of Texas. As the sun would rise so would I, and so I was known then as the house of the rising sun. For as far as the eye could see I was the only dwelling in sight. I was here before the city, be- fore the stores, before the building, men apd bulldozers took over the land, we know now as The Colony, Texas, and before I became known as the house at 4901 Main- The Purple House.

12A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 29,1998 SPORTS Blue Wave men strike gold at TAAF state swim meet The Colony's Blue Wave swim team is primarily a vehicle for kids to compete during the summer. Of- ten lost is the fact that adults can par- ticipate, as well. That point was proven last week- end, when three men of the Blur Wave collected all of the team's four gold medals at the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation state meet in Lubbock. Tony Kwee led by winning two events in the 18- to 24-year-old divi- sion. He took the 100-meter indi- vidual medley in a time of 56.51 sec- onds, then won the 50-meter butter- fly in 23.55. Chris Gehrke took the 18-24 divi- sion gold in the 50-meter backstroke, finishing the race in 26.48 seconds. Ken Ferrara earned the state champi- onship in the age 25-49 100-meter in- dividual medley, completing the four- stroke race in 1 minute. 4.14 seconds. Kwee, Gehrke and Ferrara were joined by Scott J. Calabro to win the silver med...

Now if only we can convince the Clinton-Lewinsky grand jury to meet here. OUTRAGEOUS We should be famous: Nice of The Dallas Morning News to feature TAAF Region IV ath- letes of the year Amber Magness and Jonathan Carey in the "Good Sports" feature in the sports section last week. But there was no mention that these two youngsters are from The Colony. Seems The News bends over backward to iden- tify anyone from Piano or High- land Park.

Blanketing the small room is a rosy-colored glow, courtesy of fluo- rescence installed in gutters that line the walls beneath the ceiling. On one wall, overlooking Gomez's huge desktop computer system is a large, blinking picture of the Starship En- terprise from the Star 7>e/ttelevision series. In this small room, Gomez con- ducts his business with national and international clients via phone, fax and Internet. Those international cli- ents are based in Latin America; a part of the world that Gomez is con- vinced will be important to busi- nesses in the United States. Though Gomez may rely on rose- colored lighting by which to do his work, he's convinced that, NAFTA aside, Latin America as a trading partner for U.S. business is more than a rose-color...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, August 5,1998 THE COURIER'S OPINION TCI hearing crowd quite disappointing Last Thursday's public hearing of the Telecommunications Board was created to encourage give-and-take dialogue between people of The Colony and TCI. TCI, in the spirit of cooperation and participation, sent its cus- tomer service manager and a qualified technician to respond to complaints and comments. On the other hand, The Colony residents were represented by a grand total of— 10 people. Given the fact that almost everyone who has cable access also seems to have cable horror stories, 10 people is a terrible turnout. True, the weather has been unbearably hot. And true, this took place on a Thursday night, a work night. But the Telecommunications Board went to a great deal of effort to set up a forum in which area residents could voice their dissatisfaction with the service - or lack thereof- they might be receiving from TCI. The hearing was advertised ...

Wednesday, August 5,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 5A OPINION Stay safe from lightning and food Restaurant safety still a top health objective Did you know... That according to the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Okla., lightning occurs somewhere in the U.S. every day in the summer? On average, more people die from lightning than from hurricanes and tornadoes combined. The National Weather Service in Silver Springs, Md., reports that 306 people were in- jured from lightning in 1997, and 42 people died. Often, victims literally don't know what hit them. Electrical injuries like lightning can burn and destroy tissue, as well as, short-circuit the body's own electrical system. What's your best stay-safe strat- egy? If you are on the water, get onto land and off the beach immediately - water-saturated sand is a good con- ductor of electricity. If you are out- side, drop anything that might con- duct electricity, such as a metal golf club, baseball bat, ten...

6A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, August 5, 1998 COMMUNITY 121 priorities: bypass, Preston-to-75 stretch By DAVE SORTER Managing Editor The good news: Service roads of the Highway 121 bypass - and main lanes between Interstate 35E in Lewisville and Hebron Parkway in Carrollton - should be finished by April 1999. That means residents of The Colony traveling to DFW Air- port will no longer have to negotiate the string of stop lights in Lewisville. The "lets-not-get-too-excited" news: When you hear talk about 121 in The Colony eventually becoming a freeway, remember that the current status of the project with the Texas Department of Transportation means that a newborn child would be in college before that freeway is constructed. The "maybe-a-little-excited" news: If Denton County voters ap- prove a $50 million road-bond issue, in an election to be held possibly in January, and Precinct 2 Commis- sioner Sandy Jacobs commits some of her share to Highway 121 freewa...

The temperature in The Colony is already hovering around 98 de- grees, and most people are spend- ing time near a cool indoor air-con- ditioning vent or a cool backyard swimming pool. A handful of people, however, are hard at work at Chapman-Carr Park, trying to entertain and en- lighten a group of youngsters. These people are putting on an enthusias- tic show from the side of a truck, complete with puppet shows, songs and skits. All of the activity is geared toward one thing. "We're trying to take the Gos- pel to the children," said Judith Rivera, club ministry pastor with Calvary Christian Center. The name of the Saturday morn- ing event is called Kids Living Up- right Boldly (K.L.U.B.), and is part of a ministry direc...

The Corps had demanded the city present its plan - called a "bubble plan" - by August 20 and a more detailed plan by October 16, which the 4B board was thinking of fund- ing. Items considered in the Corps' lake-use study would then be part of an environmental-impact study. Planning Director Harry Persaud would have been in charge of the "bubble-plan" project and said he would work nights and weekends to complete it by the August 17 Coun- cil meeting, at which the Council would have to approve the presentation. Persaud acknowledged that he and his staff have an overflowing plate even without the lakeshore project. "Every day, new plans come in...

He also said CoServe plans to build a telephone infrastructure in new residential areas of town, spe- cifically mentioning the Legends development east of Paige road and areas in the northern part of the city, such as Wynnewood Peninsula. When asked if CoServe would compete for Austin Ranch business, Chism said, "We're looking at any kind of new development." He added that he expects Southwestern Bell to com- pete in all locations CoServe enters. Whether CoServe will compete with SWB for current customers is another matter. Doing so would require CoServe to either build an entirely new telephone infrastructure or tap into SWB's facilities and resell service. "It's not our plan to build all over the city," Chism said, adding that reselling "is not our primary goal." But CoServe is not totally ruling out trying to w...

All school-aged students were bussed to Central Elementary or Lewisville High School in Lewisville. The ride itself took nearly an hour and the bus, which The Colony students shared with students from Little Elm, was over crowded. "When you put your school aged child on the bus in the morning," says former Mayor and current Councilman Bill Longo. "Nine out of 10 of them had to stand the whole Part 6: The first schools way in to Lewisville." The overcrowding, along with what the parents saw as unsafe bus stops, led to a concerted effort by the homeowner's associa- tion to get a school built in The Colony. Finally i...

Wednesday, August 12,1998 This Paper is Recyclable The Colony Courier 3A BUSINESS Insurance community varies in number, style National brands, independent agents abundant By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor For many people, purchasing in- surance - whether life, health or dis- ability - is not a task they perform on a regular basis. "People don't tend to say 'let's go out and buy insurance today,"' said Stewart Roberson, an agent af- filiated with Mutual of Omaha. "It's probably about as exciting as plan- ning a dental appointment." But while planning a dental ap- pointment normally involves one phone call, purchasing insurance in The Colony can be a little more com- plicated. In addition to the fact there are many agents in the area, the con- sumer can work either with a direct writing agent or an independent agent. The direct writing agent, or "captive," agent represents products and services from one insurance company (usually a national one), while his/her independent co...

4A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, August 12,1998 EDITORIAL THE COURIER'S OPINION Why is The Colony LISD's low scorer? Let's not mince words. There is something inherently wrong with the system when a school district in which 65 percent of its schools earn "ex- emplary" rankings from the Texas Education Association has one city in which only 22 percent of its campuses get the top score. Of the nine schools in The Colony, just B.B. Owen and Ethridge El- ementary earned exemplary ratings. This is not to take away those schools' accomplishments. The principals, staffs and parents of those schools are to be congratulated for their efforts. And two exemplary schools are double the number of last year, when only Owen scored at the top. In fact, Owen and principal Marilyn Spence should receive a special bouquet for being rated exemplary the past four years. Based on the ratings of the other city schools, we would expect a rash of house hunting in Owen's attendance zo...
