What new restaurants does Texarkana need ?

FRONT PAGE Jeff "Adolph" Akin IS

The county is asking for two things: Dismissal of the suit and compensation for monies spent for its defense; which means if the judge grants their motion Mr. Akin will need to cough up some dinars. Based on what I have seen so far it looks like he doesn't have a case much less standing to bring suit.  (Jan 2, 2014 | post #3)

County Judge: Who will you vote for?

I heard the cost of the special election would be $ 150,000. Not exactly chicken feed. Cost of defending the lawsuit is open ended but one can assume it could easily run to six figures. I notice that he is using an attorney from Pittsburg, TX. I wonder why.  (Dec 21, 2013 | post #76)

Jeff akin... Trying to explain

I've seen several of Akin's type over the years. They are all hat and no cattle.  (Dec 21, 2013 | post #7)

Alchohol sales in Texarkana, Texas ??

The sales tax on alcohol is 12.3% on Stateline. Plus it is a 12 mile round trip @ $ .55/mile.  (Dec 17, 2013 | post #18)

Why is Johnny Carino's closed?

We haven't eaten @ Fiesta House in 5-6 years. It seemed to us that after they moved to the larger new location the quality of the food fell off quite a bit. As far as Big Jakes goes it is just OK. Ramage Farms had great BBQ before it burned. I keep saying I'll try Naaman's but haven't yet. Today might be the first time since I'm tired of cooking. The meat is important but the good sides are essential.  (Dec 7, 2013 | post #17)

Sheriff Prince: Why No Arrest In Double Homicide At Pris...

I wouldn't be concerned about Prince stalling or letting him slide since it is a JOINT investigation between the BCSO and the DPS (Texas Rangers); and you can bet the Rangers won't let anyone off the hook.  (Dec 4, 2013 | post #1084)

Be thankful for the TTPD

ACLU Working to Assess Growth in Police Militarization March 6, 2013 The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said Wednesday that chapters in 23 states have filed over 255 open records requests pertaining to the militarization of local police departments around the country since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in what the group is calling its most concentrated effort yet to assess the growth of America’s police state. “The American people deserve to know how much our local police are using military weapons and tactics for everyday policing,” Allie Bohm, ACLU advocacy and policy strategist, said in an advisory. “The militarization of local police is a threat to Americans’ right to live without fear of military-style intervention in their daily lives, and we need to make sure these resources and tactics are deployed only with rigorous oversight and strong legal protections.”  (Mar 16, 2013 | post #18)

The arrogant little p***k got slapped down yesterday by a judge who called his soda ban "arbitrary and capricious".  (Mar 12, 2013 | post #3)

Bowie County Republican Party

Not exactly. Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel in which Hamilton fired first and deliberately missed Burr. Burr on the other hand took deliberate aim and gut shot Hamilton resulting in his demise.  (Mar 10, 2013 | post #10)

Texarkana airport

I don't fly out of TXK for three reasons: 1) You have to fly into DFW and dock at the 'pony' gates which means you are exposed to the elements/noise walking from the plane to the "gate"; and then what seems like a 5K trek to your connecting flight. 2) It is expensive 3) Obviously not non-stop service. When we fly we go to Little Rock and get non-stops to just about anywhere. The money saved will more than offset the gas and parking.  (Mar 7, 2013 | post #7)

don cooksey

Decades ago I was told by an outstanding criminal attorney that if I were to be charged with a crime and was guilty to choose trial by jury and if innocent choose trial by judge. Fortunately haven't needed to use his advice.........yet.  (Mar 6, 2013 | post #11)
