Open in new windowOpen in new windowOpen in new windowWell, I've held onto these links probably too long, waiting for some time to write something. But it's been a busy week, so I'm just going to put them out here:

At the Lewisville High School Harmon Campus, students can enjoy a reasonably priced coffee at the "Bookstore Bistro" in their school library.

Farmer's Branch lost their appeal over their illegal rental ordinance in Federal Appeals court. The ordinance called for the town to check immigration status on all prospective apartment renters, even though the federal government has no provisions for municipalities to use immigration databases for that purpose. The people of Farmers Branch have now spent $4 million on this.

Lewisville Park Rangers awarded for their role in saving a life.

What the hell?

In the Lewisville Mayor's race, both candidates now have Facebook Pages, and if you judge by likes, they're in a much closer race than it will probably end up being:
- Dean Ueckert (40 likes)
- Winston Edmondson (38 likes)
Edmondson's page prominently features the Gadsden flag so that Tea Party members will identify. Ueckert says his campaign website will be live as soon as today.

In the LISD school board race for Place 1, candidates June Ehinger (7) and Tracee Ali (23) launched their Facebook pages. Kathy Duke (91) has had hers for some time now , as has Paige Shoven. (61)

A skate park in Plano is shutting down. I wonder if this will mean even more kids over at the Scion of Lewisville Skate Park?

When I heard about Gallagher's heart attack here in Lewisville, I was surprised to hear that he was here. Back in the days when he was popular, I've been to one of his shows, and enjoyed it, so I thought I might have gone if I'd heard about it. Supposedly, though Gallagher has taken on a bigoted and homophobic right-wing angle as he fades into obscurity.


Lewisville residents: please sign up for the new emergency notification system for Lewisville. This replaces the Code Red system that used to be in place, and your information is not guaranteed to be transferred automatically.

The Paul Ryan plan for Medicare a lot like "Obamacare". Republican ideas are only bad when Democrats agree to them.

Surprise: one more way that cigarette smoking is bad for you.


Just for fun:

 Re: Links on Thursday Morning
Interesting article about downtown Plano. In a blatant attempt to hijack the thread, there are a lot of parallels between downtown Plano and Old Town Lewisville. Revitalization in downtown Plano is worthy of deeper dive for anyone thinking about Old Town Lewisville.

As to skateboarders, I also wonder if this will increase the number of long boarders in Castle Hills. CH including my street has become a major place for kids to longboard (longer boards, wider wheel base) because of it's hilly residential streets. Sometimes there are dozens out doing it. I wonder if there's any chance of Scion being expanding to have a long downhill run? Maybe pave a strip down the side of the landfill?

 Re: Links on Thursday Morning
What the hell is right! We have a thread currently discussing the use of the word "retarded" in the context of using it as a derogatory verb or adjective. Then, someone makes a website about little hands and photoshops pictures with celebrities to make them appear to have the real physical disability of a "baby hand"? I guess some people find that funny but I agree with Steve's sentiment: What the hell?!!! Just another sign that disabilities are a joke to some people. Sad. Guess the Burger King commercial with the "baby handed" man just egged this on.

 Re: Links on Thursday Morning - Gallagher Suffers Second Heart Attack
From the FYI dept., Gallagher had a second heart attack, and is now in an Arizona hospital. Don't know that I much care, but I suppose it is news at some level.
