Some out of state people are reading about this town and county and deciding we are all really funny. How does it feel to be laughed at? Our statewide rep. is not very good for sure. We are considered quarelsome and corrupt in Austin. That is a common feeling around the region here as well. Our legal community is not respected in other counties as well. Ask around and you will get the same reaction. It looks like the rep. is deserved from the evidence on our blog site.

"some out of state people"? If they're reading these blogs they must be smart enough to know about a dozen people are the only ones writing the posts. don't try and tie together some of our county's recent tragedies to "local politics" or the city council. that is cruel and heartless.
you are the only one who is "obsessed" with every word said at the city council meetings. you must have had a ball in junior high with your "Slam Book" where you made fun of and criticized the other students who you thought were the "popular kids." everyone else moved on with their maturity, you did not.
sad old sack of bones.

What "out-of-state people?. I don't hear any laughing. Got examples? Post some links to what "some out-of-state people" are deciding.(As if "out-of-state people" give a rip about politics in Weatherford, Texas and Parker County. Do you give a rip about politics in, for example, Garden City, Kansas and Finney County?)
This is TEXAS, girl! What do we care about what "out-of-state people" in New York or Califonia or Oklahoma say about us? We are TEXANS! We do it our way!
Who "in Austin" says we are "quarelsome(sic) and corrupt"? Name some names.
Who in "other counties" do not respect our "legal community"? What "other counties"?
I have had my doubts, but you are working very hard to convince me you are, in fact, Tawni Maughan. You are parroting Tawni almost word for word. All empty insinuations and zero factual material. I can be sure, like Tawni, you will refuse to get specific and post the links I asked for and name the names.
Talk to a lawyer in Tarrant county about how he feels about working in our courts over here. See what he says, then contact another and ask the same question. Call the Sec. Of States office and when they ask what county you are calling from wait for their reaction. They are polite about it but the amusement in their voice speaks volumes. This is not a new item for sure. Get the info for yourself since you do have a problem accepting comments from others.

Then why the hell has the SOS taken sny action?

The "amusement" in their voice is because that same pathetic character is calling again"

She has called at least 50 times with outlandish accusations. Non ever were proved or substanciated.

The problem with Tawni is that just because she doesn't understand something (which is pretty often) she thinks it's wrong.

That's funny, the attorney I hired from Tarrant County had absolutely no problem working in Parker County. He loved it - extra money for travel!

I have several attorney friends in FW, Dallas and Waco. Three of them have tried cases in Parker County over the past 15 years. They all had nice things to say about the Judges they argued in front of, and the juries they had contact with. One is a professor at a Big 12 law school. That is a specific statement. Factual.
"Pubic Servant" just makes crap up. What a sad life. Why would you open a business (even such a borderline money loser like a Yoga shop) in such a terrible place? Did you want to gyp the awful locals out of their hard earned money? In the last 20 years 20,000 plus people have moved to Parker County. You claim we are the nation's laughingstock. How does that compute?

You crazy effers. I guess that's why the schools keep expanding, you can't drive down the streets and the sales tad is up.

Lol well the fan club is awake! This town is really something. Never a dull week. Wait till the folks get a load of the new plan to get storm drainage system that should have been done decades ago. Hope every one has a money pot to go to. It appears the good servants on the council have their eye on the taxpayer and ratepayer's wallets once again. This can be done without an election or any interferance from the public. What a relief for them (our heros) that is. Wonder how many more projects they have up their sleves for us to fund?

so it would have been ok to raise taxes years ago to improve the storm drainage system that was not overloaded then because we hadn't built all the shopping centers and parking lots that create the run-off problem?
you and logic should meet each other some day. you just pick crap out of the air and run with it, true or not.
public servant, you are a babbling crow.
oh, and they are not typos if you don't know how to spell. they are mistakes, just like your birth.

No Dummy A.. The developers should have paid to have proper drainage installed on properties they gained financially on. Do you know who gained financially on the properties out at the interstate and who made a big chunk off the properties where the new portion of the football stadium was built?

how simple it would be to look on public online records to see who owned the six or seven houses that were purchased by WISD, then torn down for the expanded parking lot at the stadium. if Swancy owned one of them i'll eat a live possum on the courthouse square.
another lie.

Never heard that snipit on Swancy. Until he became an elected official he may not have had deep enough pockets to own extra realestate. That project you mentioned did cause a lot of bad feelings toward WISD concerning how those houses were acquired from their owners. Now we all get to look at that ridiculous pidgeon roost they built for our never winning football team. It has not seemed to affect their game at all. Actually it wasn't
built for the kids at all, just the overblown egos of the old boys of the alumni club.

WRONG
i personally knew one of the homeowners. they were very satisfied with the offer and they accepted. offers were based on fair market value. and, o knowledgeable sportsexpert, who guaranteed that renovating the existing stadium would result in a winning football team. until we have the numbers in high school that martin and bowie (5000-7000 students), W'ford will never compete with them on the football field. if their egos were overblown, would they still be in the stands as they were last Friday night when the home side was full?
you feel the need to be an expert on every aspect of life and enterprise in Weatherford, Parker County and Texas. how did you get so much knowledge with so little education?
it is not YOUR football team. you didn't graduate, you don't participate, you are a cawing crow from the telephone line.

The stands are full because our kids are supported by their family and friends whatever the outcome of a game. You are part of that rabid element alive a well in the football world who needs a reality check. The whole stadium project looks weird and one-sided half finished. Gold plated on the home side and low-rent on the visitor side. Why was that done that way? Common sense goes out the window here and everywhere else when football is the subject. Not a fan of the crazyness that takes place when football is the center.

You can not be a fan or even have the slightest little interest in the local high school football team.
Have you ever been to an away game? Visitor's side stands are generally "low-rent".
Not a good reason for Weatherford to be the same as everyone else. It even smacks of bad manners in our treatment of guests in our town. How does it feel to sit in the low-rent side when you are with the visiting team. Are the locker rooms for the teams as low-rent as the stands. That is just wrong. We all know the reason for all of it is money. The taxpayers won't scream too loudly if the money is overspent for our side but would pitch a fit if we did the same for the Enemy teams. So much for reasonable thinking envolved with FOOTBALLMANIA!

You are one of those people who does nothing but look for something to criticize.

You're a sad, sad person.

no reason or rationale. to build a "pro type stadium" like Aledo would have meant going out for a bond package. the school board took our economy and citizens to heart and renovated instead of building another Cowboy Stadium. you have never been in the visitor locker room, you have never been to a game at North Crowley or Richland, you again don't have a clue what you are cawing about from your perch on the phone line.
take a hammer to your computer and do us all a huge favor.
I hereby place a curse on you. Don't laugh.
