The Star-Telegram Endorse NO vote and two NO council candidates
an Opinion Column by LNO Editor Nelson Thibodeaux

Those who oppose a Colleyville “Rural Feel” viision must be giddy over the Star-Telegram Editorial Endorsement on Wednesday, April 22, 2015.  To quote the Editorial; “Colleyville can no longer afford to cling to its horse-farms-and-feed-stores history. Business growth should be Colleyville’s goal, or else residents will face shouldering the entire cost of city services.”

Guest Editorial
by Frank Carroll


The Star-Telegram Editorial Board in its April 22 editorial urged Colleyville citizens to “Vote for Stability in Colleyville.”  A nice catch phrase, but the question is at what cost.  Stability at the cost of stupidity is too high a price to pay.  Once again the Editorial Board is fishing in the red herring pond and has caught its limit.

Not Just A Sneaker   
Little Known Facts
Nelson Thibodeaux

It has been hailed as one of the greatest boons to science in history.  Well, at least to the research of ocean currents anyway.  For the first time, oceanographers were able to calculate with uncanny certainty the actual tracts, currents and eddies of the Pacific Ocean.   

The date was May 1990, and sailors and scientists for nearly three centuries had been watching, sailing and tracking the currents of America’s westward ocean.  But never had there been such an opportunity to watch it happen.

An LNO Column by LNO Editor Nelson Thibodeaux

Mike Taylor
Shortly before Mr. Taylor lost another election for City Council on May 7, 2005, at a gathering of his supporters, Taylor was quoted as having said "I have the ear of the Star-Telegram and he would use it to clean up matters at city hall."

 Well Taylor 13 days after Taylor's loss, at least he had the ear of the then
