TX Dot says work on Hwy 26 in Colleyville will start 24/7; First Target Date to Complete is March 31, 2015! or at latest May31st.
by Nelson Thibodeaux

A meeting  sponsored by District 98 Representative Giovanni Capriglione was held at Market Street Tuesday afternoon.  The announced purpose was Hwy 26 construction in Colleyville.

The project has been more than a year and is way behind schedule and to date appeared to be a debacle.

The construction, along Hwy 26 beginning at Pool Road going South, has tested the patience of anyone who has tried to transverse the intersection at Hwy 26 and John McCain.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor,
Diesel trains along with stagecoaches are transportation modes of the past. Even light rail projects in cities around the nation have been miserable failures running over budget, missing ridership projections and worst of all have little to no measurable effect on traffic congestion. Ft Worth had passenger rail many years ago and those tracks are now buried. Let's quit repeating our mistakes and move into the future.

City Announces "Workshop" on Tuesday October 28, 2014 and a Public Hearing on
November 12, 2014

After citizens voiced concern about "letting a bid on Hwy 26 in December," at the October Hwy 26 meeting held by State Representative Giovanni Capriglione as reported on There was particular concern of the continuation of design, being built on Hwy 26 now, that, while it appears it will be almost one year behind schedule, also includes a median in the middle of Hwy 26.  However, unlike the section being built now, the section down the major business corridor of Colleyville will continue to have only two lanes on each side and a huge median in the middle.

Those citizens attending voiced major concerns about the median design because of the issue of being able to turn left into Colleyville businesses, in lieu of traveling significantly out of their way to another intersection to then have to turn around and go back to their location.

September 29, 2014 An LNO Exclusive
It's a Record!
Exclusive of Local News - Nelson Thibodeaux

Do you have a favorite song?  Most of us do.  If I were to bet, i' would guess that your favorite is a song that came out at a very emotional time in your life.  Maybe you were dating your husband or wife.  Maybe you had a fascination for someone or some place.  Maybe it was a lost love.  It usually is, you know.

      Yeah, even research tells us that music is most important to us at emotional times in our lives.  Music, it's said, can soothe the savage beast.  And I'm sure it can.  But it probably did more to prompt a kiss or two than soothe the beast in us.  Even other artists can have a bit of fun capitalizing on the popularity of a song or group.
