City does not like to enforce ordinances, it requires actual work to be done.  (Apr 25, 2010 | post #2)

Bizarre Bizaar

Surprised to see they opened up a bizarre bizaar on Spencer Hwy and there was no discussion about it on this forum.  (Apr 25, 2010 | post #1)

Who think Deer Park is ugly?

Dealt with the city on this one before and was told the sidewalk ends at the driveway, so therefore unless youre parked over the actual sidewalk itself it is a losing battle.  (Apr 2, 2010 | post #78)

I believe you are supposed to call Animal Control during regular hours and call the Police Dept after hours. Don't be afraid to call the police as it is their job, sure it won't be priority one but what else is really happening for them to do. In your case something has to give. It may also be in your homeowners association rules if you have one.  (Mar 24, 2010 | post #6)

Well I dont know, however the lady working the deli at Kroger told me they had heard HEB was going to move into the old Albertsons at Spencer & Center.  (Mar 21, 2010 | post #2)

council race

Who Knows Thanks. I am now dumber for having read your post. Please have someone reread you my post. I have only expressed what I got from the articles and asked for clarification of my views. Unlike most I would like to make a informative vote. I welcome opinions but would like to have facts. May I ask who you are voting for and the reasons why?  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #127)

DPTX are you stating a police officer needs a search warrant to search an area of the vehicle that the driver has access to?  (Mar 13, 2010 | post #42)

council race

DPTX you are right to a degree, but never got the point. I would say on a average council meeting you may have 20-25 residents in attendance (less when Ive gone). This Forum has what maybe 30 active posters (hard to tell when people post under multiple postings). So now lets say we have 70 voters (some won't even bother to vote) So now we have the Cobb supporters who will vote for her.Whats left? The people who are unhappy with what Cobb has done (me). I will vote for Janatsch or Zastrow but am undecided. I read the articles in the broadcaster that is thrown in 90% of Deer Parks driveways and just from the article could not tell Bill's stance.Thanks to topix it has been clarified to me. I had thought Bill was against (which he is) 4B only because of TOPIX. My biggest fear is Janatsch & Zastrow split their votes allowing Cobb to win. I can not make regular council meetings due to shift work but do try to keep up with the minutes which are usually posted a month late. But yes like you say very few people will make the election which usually favors the incumbent. I believe the interviews give me enough information on what the candidates views are to make a educated decision on whom to vote for even if they don't keep their word.  (Mar 13, 2010 | post #113)

The problem is you don't know the law. He does not need a search warrant to search your purse. Do you not believe it could have been possible that you might have a gun or drugs in your purse? No? And of course Im sure it was this same cops fault for you not getting your registration renewed when it was due. I for one find it hard that you actually posted this looking for support.  (Mar 13, 2010 | post #38)

No DPTX you do not need to clear it up since Bill ZZ did but thanks for proving my point that from the article it was not clear to begin with. I just wished Bill ZZ would have stated it clearly in the article like John did.  (Mar 13, 2010 | post #111)

DPTX, could you please quote or state from the articles where it states Zastrow is against it. Unlike Janatsch who states " I don't want the 4B tax" Zastrow only states his concerns about it. Try and remember I am going off the articles in the paper, not everyone reads this forum.  (Mar 13, 2010 | post #107)

council race

OK so lets see if I understand.... 1 Flooding.....Every one is for fixing it, Cobb has been on council 8 years and we are still flooding. 2 4B ......Cobb appears to be for it, Zastrow never really says for or against although I sense against, & Janatsch is against it. 3 Golf course.....Zastrow was only one to mention this miserable money pit.(Bonus points here) 4 Center Traffic....Zastrow & Janatsch seem to want to address it , Cobb is still confused about Luella P & X after 8 years on council & I know for a fact people have asked her to address it for over 2 years. Janatsch wants to ban cell phones in school zones and increase police in them (Bonus points here) 5 City employees may be backing Janatsch since he seems to mention their needs while Fire & Police may rally for Zastrow although I don't know what tools they need. 6 Future growth, well Cobb seems to think the we need to beautify Deer Park and seemed to almost be supportive for apartments behind Wal-mart. Zastrow says we need to shop at home, problem is Wal-mart is pretty much a monopoly to do this,HEB is a second rate store compared to the Fairmont store & Food Town almost seems 3rd world at times, Deer Park lumber doesnt compete with Lowes or Home Depot so we are stuck there, and Restaurants that were supposed to come with the passing of alcohol sales? I'm sorry but all we got was BiBi's & Howdy Burger unless you count the numerous local favorites in walking distance of our newest hotel. OK everyone correct me now but this is what I got from the articles. I cannot see myself voting for Cobb because I saw nothing in the article that appealed to me. Janatsch or Zastrow will most likely get my vote but they are very tight based upon the articles. I would like to hear why I should change my opinions.  (Mar 12, 2010 | post #103)

Freebirds is coming!

I wonder if this is the old Skeeters location. Skeeters had a nice breakfast on weekends. Shame they closed the Pasadena location & kept Gulfgate one.  (Mar 10, 2010 | post #2)
