In response to Ms. Wiggins unhappy letter about Kiki Neumann having the audacity to sell her nearby property to Friendswood Development, instead of Joe Blow’s Used Warehouses, sounds like she’s upset they didn’t approach her first. On a block with eight plots, three of which support large and older commercial endeavors, one would think the neighbors might be a tad relieved to have new residential construction happening instead of a less desirable outcome, perhaps a mobile home park, mini-storage units, a halfway house… It certainly bodes well for their own properties, each happily set on very large lots as well. The smallest I found on HCAD is a little over a half acre. Ms. Wiggins home is set on a full acre. Try living in the Woodland Heights area as I do — three-story, 4,500 sq. ft., zero lot line, mega mansions being built on 5,000 sq. ft. lots. Now, THAT’s what I call high density housing.
Keep holding those library books a few extra weeks
They could make their six month traffic ticket quota in one week if they patrol the Heights: Yale, Studemont, and 20th. The posted limit is 30 mph. The average speeds driven are 40-50 all day everyday.
Thank you for this! Looking forward to the series.
I’m sure I contributed a good portion of the revenue from library fines!
More vacation for Teachers?
I’ll support more vacation time for Teachers. If they agree to a reduction in salary of 15 – 20%. Same for administrators!
Reader impressed by Leader Media Campers
Wow! The Vignettes by the Media Campers were really thoughtful and worth reading. Some of the thoughts were profound. “The Blue Light of the phone like sun light to our brain to keep it working.”
I take that MIT teacher to read the editorials of the students and the cartoons. The young are the future and we are in good hands when this group comes of age. I just hope they don’t lose their honesty and idealism as they age. Many of us have not and it’s a good feeling.
P.S. There is a book about the electronic media by a female professor from MIT that you might pass on for this group to read. I’ll get the title for you.
