The Barnett Shale has been huge for the North Texas economy and is sited as one of the reasons why we are not in a recession here as some of the other parts of the country. The land men have been walking our neighborhood trying to get people to sign leases for pennies on the […]

UPDATE (12Jul08): The Keller Citizen updated its letters to the editor section (after many months of no updates) late on July 11, 2008, after I posted my original comment below. I’m looking forward to seeing the latest letters appearing online each week when the hardcopy version hits our mailboxes. ———————————– Jim Carson’s letter in the 11 July 2008 […]

The High Life


Happy to see that a long overdue restroom at the Keller-Smithfield activity node is under construction. I don’t know why it took so long. I can only conclude that the city number-crunchers figured out that in the long run, building a john would be cheaper than filling the sandbox with “Fresh Step” and its associated […]

There’s a rumor going around the Keller Pointe (Keller’s recreational facility) that I want to close it. It’s not true. I paid a visit to the Pointe last week to check out our new massage services area. While there I got into a bit of a debate regarding the civic value of various recreational opportunities […]

I live right across the street from a future NRH park. The area consists of about 40 acres of trees and grass that is actually a very pretty piece of property. Over the last 3 years, the local kids on motorcycles and four wheelers have taken over the property. The fences and gates are all […]

I thought the Johnson Road Park PACT Playground was a dead issue, since it was torn down and replaced over a year ago. I certainly did not think it would be made a campaign issue. But I was wrong. In a letter to the editor (“Pure Fiction,” The Keller Citizen, March 23), a writer listed […]

Last night I had the privilege to accompany my 7-year-old daughter to the Father/Daughter sweetheart ball at the Keller Pointe.  It is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to take her to this Keller Parks and Rec function. It was, as always, a first class event and I had the opportunity to thank Dona […]

One of the items on next Tuesday’s city council agenda is a resolution requesting the State Legislature to increase funding for the Texas Recreation and Parks Account Local Park Grant Program and the Texas State Park System. The TRPA is a grant program for parkland acquisition and development whereby the State gives monies to local […]
