Well, it's been nice getting all of this rain, even though it made for a miserable soggy day yesterday. Lewisville Lake rose by about 3.5 inches, reaching an elevation of 521.06 feet - still about a foot low. That puts the lake at 95% full.

Open in new windowDenton County Transportation Authority will be holding some public meetings to go over its community survey results regarding transportation in Denton County. The meetings will be held in Denton, Highland Village, and Lewisville. The meeting for Lewisville is March 8th, 6:30 p.m. in Lewisville City Council chambers.

Open in new windowMark your calendars now for some roller derby action: Saturday, February 25th, at 6:00 p.m in Denton. This event will be a double-header, with women's teams the Hickory Street Hooligans against Muertas Locas. Men's team, the Dallas deception will also have a bout. Tickets are $12 for general admission, kids 12 and under are free, and veterans have a discounted ticket price of $8. Lewisville Texan Journal will be on-hand to produce the video of the bout. For tickets and more information click here.

Open in new windowLewisville City Council meets Monday afternoon in workshop session to wrap up their annual retreat (videos here, here, and here) from earlier this month, and give city staff direction on items such as a possible restaurant smoking ban. Workshop is at 4:00 p.m., and regular meeting is at 7:00 p.m. There doesn't appear to be anything controversial on the docket for the main meeting.

A study mentioned in Science Daily makes that case that everyone benefits from quality public schools - not just parents with kids in the system. We don't think they needed a study to show that. It's obvious to most, and those who reject it wouldn't be convinced by any studies.

Did you hear about the train derailment Friday in Arlington? I was concerned when I saw how many tank cars were involved. Luckly, it turns out the derailed tanks were holding corn syrup. Now that's what I call a sticky situation.

Another Republican who thinks he is above the law, hypocritically hanging out at a gay bar, then fleeing the scene after hitting a parked car on his way out.

And here are some Republicans threatening national security by holding our Strategic Petroleum Reserve hostage to the demands of their corporate backers. Meanwhile, land owners from all ends of the political spectrum reject the foreign company's right to eminent domain over U.S. and Texan soil.
