#46294 West 7th Development

I say if you park an SUV on 7th St. with either headin or parallel parking available, THEN YOU GET TICKETED! And I could care less if you have a HandicRap sticker too. And if you can't stand NOT having your space take priority over mine by law, then take the "Driving Miss Daisy" route. Besides, parking further from the action (on the street) is more work.

I have a design for head in parking along 7th, but some pathway RE will have to be chipped away in the process. But it would make for a neat sidewalk design.

Envision a Christmas tree silhouette, now cut it in half from the top down. Parking goes in deeper at the beginning of each parking lot. 8 spaces per parking lot.

A systematic jagged design if you will.

Funny what a new year can do to a local paper.

The few last paragraphs in particular could raise some concern about Wendy Davis and her camp.

Here are those last few paragraphs:
Brender said he spoke with Davis' attorney late Monday after three firefighters issued their challenge to Davis' candidacy. The Fort Worth Firefighters Association has endorsed Brimer. Brimer's campaign representative is Bryan Eppstein, who worked for the firefighters in their recent successful bid to bargain collectively with the city.

Eppstein in December called Davis "an enemy of police officers and firefighters in Tarrant County."

Brender said he also notified the Texas Secretary of State's Office regarding challenge.

Yes, indeed, it is very interesting. I lived in Mistletoe Heights for eight years and knew Wendy Davis. An enemy of police officers and firefighters??? I don't think so. Brimer is a desperate man. Will be interesting to see what other desperate measures he resorts to.

Wrong. I was refering to the other article. Did Brimer call for this move ??? The second article does not appear to indicate that. This was a FFAssoc. backed move based on my observations. If he is in fact a desperate man, then he would be the first incumbent to be labeled that based on my recollections.

The next Q should be WHY the FFAssoc. DOES NOT ENDORSE the other candidate(s)?

Indeed, it is a very bold statement to lay out on the wire, but is there SOME MERIT?
Was the quote ORIGINATED by a member of those mentioned Assoc.'s in Tarrant County?

I would like EPPSTEIN to elaborate further on the position taken. Or at least the reporter should explain the stance for us.

It's the real deal. And he still needs your help. So let's do what we can. Clock is ticking. One more month left.

Keep them "dukes" up BERNIE.

I hear they have a great Architectual school. Maybe they could apply their learnings into a new project to attract residents and urban junkies. Maybe.

Student populations are fertile ground for diverse neighborhoods

And THRIVING ones too.
