Star Telegram Story On Wise County Growth


Here. I would have never have found it on the web site had I not bought a hard copy of the paper.

interesting bit in the update about vision north texas seminar at northwest high school. less urban sprawl in favor of higher density development.

Water. Gasoline. These two factors will begin to constrain the population spread. The population figures may have validity but I don't think we can sustain it without great changes in our gasoline and water usage.

Don't know about anyone else but that Star Telegram link completely locked up my computer! I'll just have to take Barry's word that it's interesting.

There was a time, a time before cable. When the local anchorman reigned supreme. When people believed everything they heard on TV. This was an age when only men were allowed to read the news. And in San Diego, one anchorman was more man then the rest. His name was Ron Burgundy. He was like a god walking amongst mere mortals. He had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo. In other words, Ron Burgundy was the balls.

On December 21 2012 everyone will be Burgundy.

I hope that Ms. Lewis is right and that people shop the square more. There are many fine businesses there and can save time, gas, etc. for shoppers. Many shoppers on the square are from out of town. Where are the Wise County people?

I think the "Wise County" people realize that there's nothing sold on the square that you can't get at Wal-Mart for about 1/3 the price. Maybe you save on gas but the markups those places charge negate that savings.

I take that back. I bought some banjo strings at the music store there once. It was totally worth it.

The out-of-town square shoppers better leave their extra long club cab diesel trucks at home and drive their hummer jrs. so their vehicle's arses don't get sideswiped while shopping. I'd bet Wise County is one of the tightest courthouse squares in the state, except for Parker County. Weatherford, man, that place is totally screwed up.

Don't know why it was so hard to find Barry. It was the first story in my Google local news links.

Well to be honest it's the second link now. Seems somebody hit a horse-drawn wagon.

To Anon. 4:03, all the people who live in wise county know that the shops on the square suck. i mean really, why is there a soap shop?! Not to mention the terrible parking.

The music shop on the square where Jarhead bought Banjo Strings has a great selection of musical merchandise and they have very fair prices. The folks that run it are friendly and courteous to customers not just because they are trying to sell goods, but because that is just the way that they are. Even lookers are welcome.
