Barnett Shale Gas Drilling In Lewisville - Near Central Park.

Oil and Gas
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/16 23:40:00 (12641 reads)

This article is old, and not all that accurate. For more of the latest information, see our Oil and Gas category. The neighborhood eventually formed a group called CPANA, which reached a deal with Cherokee Horn for some additional money, and some concessions for the protection of the neighborhood. The currently mentioned drill site is actually on the Southeast corner of Corporate and Valley Parkway.

This is a developing story. At this point, we want to get as much information out here as quickly as we can, so we can begin to ask the important questions - as a neighborhood, and as a city.

A neighbor came to me today and informed me that in the northeastern part of my precinct, folks had been approached by a drilling company, Cherokee Horn Energy, LP with an offer to lease the minerals under their property.

Click to view Central Park MapMy neighbor heard from one of his other neighbors that the drilling would be done "behind the wooded area" in Central Park, which is Lewisville's little urban forest area, surrounding Timber Creek.



Cities all over the Western side of DFW have seen drilling in recent years in a massive natural-gas bearing formation known as the "Barnett Shale", approximately two miles below us, and ending somewhere around I-35E to the East.

There are several problems here:

Friday Open Thread

Links, Thoughts, and Open Thread
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/15 8:57:28 (1191 reads)

Goal ThermometerIt's Friday, It's Payday, It's raining outside (finally), and it's tax-free weekend.

Tonight, Rick Noriega will be in Southern Denton County for a fundraiser.

Tomorrow morning, is a community garage sale, and the Lewisville Senior Center in Memorial Park.

There's still trouble brewing between Russia and Georgia, and our government is casting its lot with Georgia. (We love the underdog)



What's on your mind today?

Lewisville Budget, 2008/2009

The Editor's Column
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/14 11:23:27 (1036 reads)

The Lewisville, TX City Council will hold a public budget workshop at 9 AM this Saturday, August 16th, 2008.

I spoke to Councilman Greg Tierney last night, who shared this good news: The city will be able to keep services at the current level, and provide raises for employees without increasing property tax rates. He noted that increases in property valuations were the likely reason.

Earlier this year, I was fairly concerned about next year's budget because of increases in the prices of fuel and electricity.

I'll be interested to see the actual numbers.

Democratic Party Chairman Assassinated

The Nimrods Never Cease to Amaze Me
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/13 19:02:59 (1002 reads)

Arkansas state Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney was assassinated this afternoon at his office in Little Rock.

At this point, the police are not reporting a motive. The gunman was killed by police after a car chase.

Speculation as to motive is beginning in some online forums, and it's not pretty.

What is this country coming to? Where is our civility?

-----------------------------
The shooter was identified as Timothy Dale Johnson, 50, of Searcy, AR.

Toll Road Etiquette

Links, Thoughts, and Open Thread
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2008/8/12 12:50:11 (1101 reads)

Apparently I missed that day in driving school all those years ago, when they taught toll-road etiquette. Pardon me, but I grew up in Waco, where there were no toll roads.

Apparently, it's verboten to actually slow down the line by paying the toll tax with cash or change, and it's perfectly acceptible to get up on somebody's ass if they should dare delay you by a second or two to pay.

With my new job, it's a lot easier to get here on the tollway. I just haven't had the opportunity yet to go and get a toll tag - and to tell the truth, I'm not enthused about allowing them to charge my account whenever they want. There's something nice about the anonymity of paying with cash too.

So today, I realize as approaching my exit, that I'm out of quarters and only have a dollar bill. I pull into the far right lane with the coin changer, leaving the left lane open for people to barrel through like idiots at 50 mph. So what does a**hole do? Pulls up right behind me, though the other lane is open. And of course the machine wants to take its time accepting my dollar. Then screw me for actually wanting to wait until the light turns green so I don't get a ticket.

Nope, a**hole pulls up 2 inches from my bumper and basically pushes me through, making wild hand gestures in the air, then follows me through and zooms around at full throttle, just to be able to stop right ahead of me at the stop light ahead.

It must suck to be so impatient as to let someone paying their toll get you in a huff. I like to think that folks like that are just having a bad day.

Come on, Texans: Drive friendly.
