First of all,let me say I was raised in Lancaster from the time I was a baby.Grew up in the Eastside Acres section of the city..past North Dallas Avenue and between Belt Line Rd and Pleasant Run Rd.Attended elementary,junior high in the Lancaster School District.First two(2)years we were bused to the Wilmer Hutchins Independent School District.Absolute Horrors those years.Lancaster integrated its' school system in 1965.....my Junior year.It was a Blessing from God,and,formed my educational tools to this day.Moved away and lived in different parts of the country and Dallas up until 2001.Came back to a city I felt was coasting with its' small town atmosphere and content on keeping the status quo as it was and not concerned that Duncanville,De Soto,and,especially Cedar Hill,were making a progressive move by attracting industry,businesses and resturants moving these cities into the 21st century and proving that small town charm can co-exist with a progressive stance to enhance the city as a whole part.All the above is to say that I'm smiling to think about the possibilities of positive newness that just may still happen in my lifetime as person who was born here,moved away,and,now back,for hopefully,a new rebirth for the City of Lancaster.

Grest post Billy Monroe!!! I live in Lancaster as well and see things heading in the right direction too. Have you heard about the project planned for the area around I-35 and Bear Creek? The council recently approved a zoning change to allow for significant retail development in that area. Its always nice to hear from other citizens of Lancaster.
