   September 08, 2014, 08:58:13 PM  guest-5a0c: I like Apaios willingness to stand up against the foolishness of the federal government

   September 08, 2014, 08:58:36 PM  guest-5a0c: and his pink outfits for inmates......very cool

   September 08, 2014, 11:40:32 PM  guest-e62a: Yes dehumanizing males by among them wear a stereotypically feminine color is so cool. So effective to I'm sure criminals 

   September 08, 2014, 11:41:09 PM  guest-e62a: Really think twice because of that one. 

   September 10, 2014, 03:12:53 AM  guest-8204: Criminals gave up their "rights" when they committed their acts against the public good

   September 10, 2014, 08:10:16 AM  guest-6c73: Did Smith Elementary come out on the unacceptable list?

   September 10, 2014, 08:10:27 AM  guest-6c73: I have kids there.

   September 10, 2014, 07:07:45 PM  guest-cfcc: Sheriff Joe Arpaio-- Coming to Forney- September 20-- 7:00 PM-- Google Kaufman County Tea Party for Details

   September 11, 2014, 10:53:00 PM  guest-32df: He would huh? So he thinks he would. If he could. But he can't.

   September 11, 2014, 10:53:11 PM  guest-32df: I'm not a big fan of Tea Party

   September 12, 2014, 11:50:04 AM  arejayavery: lol... the old fashioned way... nothing like ignorant chest thumping to make people feel better

   September 15, 2014, 02:17:33 PM  guest-cfcc: You are invited- "This Saturday Evening" to hear Sheriff Joe Arpaio--1st Baptist Church in Forney-7:00 PM America's Sheriff!

   September 16, 2014, 10:05:44 PM  guest-6fff: Touching moment tonight honoring Forney's fallen soldier. Well done, Forney. 

   September 18, 2014, 10:47:40 PM  guest-4852: Councilmen Parker, Reagan, and Stephens lit it up apparently. Way to go, boys!  Questions and accountability are good things.

   September 18, 2014, 10:49:03 PM  guest-4852: The main issue at hand though seems to be behind them.  Residual messes.  Conserve our money and spend wisely!!!

   September 20, 2014, 11:33:08 AM  guest-380b: lol yeah know that the EDC fell on the sword for yet another "buddy" deal that has cost the city more than it should have if 

   September 20, 2014, 11:33:22 AM  guest-380b: it was done right... but i guess like an abusive spouse we should just trust they are gonna change now

   September 20, 2014, 11:33:28 AM  guest-380b: they have learned their lesson....

   September 21, 2014, 01:49:14 PM  guest-32df: Yes, well... I believe Mr.Brooks is right in saying if certain council members want to be involved in 

   September 21, 2014, 01:49:35 PM  guest-32df: projects, contracts, and negotiations early on -- then there ARE multiple ways to do it.

   September 21, 2014, 01:50:32 PM  guest-32df: They can and should "plug-in" early on - and get involved. 

   September 21, 2014, 01:51:03 PM  guest-32df: Not just sit back like a judge ready with a thumb for up or down.

   September 21, 2014, 01:51:25 PM  guest-32df: They should be pro-active BEFORE issues are handed to them on a plate.

   September 21, 2014, 01:52:30 PM  guest-32df: They could become thouroughly knowledgable in what is going on - and then they wouldn't be the "last to know".

   September 21, 2014, 01:53:56 PM  guest-32df: But yea, that won't help with "ugly babies" they already got.

   September 21, 2014, 01:54:24 PM  guest-32df: ... but for the future man! 

   September 21, 2014, 01:55:41 PM  guest-32df: Actually, 'help' and advice is needed w these historical properties BEFORE someone dreams up the great idea.

   September 21, 2014, 01:56:00 PM  guest-32df: Like this one - making two separate buildings into one.

   September 21, 2014, 01:56:29 PM  guest-32df: That's where the problem came in.

   September 21, 2014, 01:56:33 PM  guest-32df: on this one.

   September 21, 2014, 01:57:23 PM  guest-32df: and SOMEONE has to get involved to improve these structures. If they hadn't we would still be sitting here with 

   September 21, 2014, 01:58:22 PM  guest-32df: an old dilapidated, ugly, useless, Firehouse.

   September 21, 2014, 01:58:43 PM  guest-32df: So I'm all for EDC doing what they have been doing. 

   September 21, 2014, 01:58:55 PM  guest-32df: But they have to do it CAREFULLY

   September 21, 2014, 01:59:16 PM  guest-32df: and with engineering advice apparently.

   September 21, 2014, 02:00:44 PM  guest-32df: I think they need to move forward with a little more eye to preserving the history of a place by the way.

   September 21, 2014, 02:01:24 PM  guest-32df: Nothing about the old Firehouse now lets you know that it was a Firehouse, or a jail, or a police station.

   September 21, 2014, 02:03:47 PM  guest-32df: I don't like that a lot.

   September 21, 2014, 02:04:43 PM  guest-32df: Although, maybe those kind of aspects can come back in the decor or 'finish out'

   September 21, 2014, 02:05:19 PM  guest-32df: But the Zanata LLC won't care about that.

   September 21, 2014, 03:41:33 PM  guest-32df: One more thing; City of Forney ALREADY has so many hoops, trials, and feats for a business to go through 

   September 21, 2014, 03:42:19 PM  guest-32df: before they can open in our Downtown, that many businesses just reject and go somewhere else 

   September 21, 2014, 03:42:54 PM  guest-32df: where they can get open in 2 or 3 weeks rather than, for example this one which has taken over a year already.

   September 21, 2014, 03:44:40 PM  guest-32df: ... and some other owners here have regret. (I hear.)

   September 21, 2014, 03:45:11 PM  guest-32df: Remember (or did you know) about the indoor Farmer's Market place that wanted to open downtown?

   September 21, 2014, 03:45:23 PM  guest-32df: They said 'screw it' and went and opened in Frisco.

   September 21, 2014, 03:53:12 PM  guest-32df: (Heresay)

   September 21, 2014, 03:53:54 PM  guest-32df: Uhh.. hearsay

   Yesterday at 03:07:38 AM  guest-6eff: guest-32df, why don't you tell us what you *really* think... in 7000 words or less...

   Yesterday at 03:58:53 AM  guest-d7ac: Lol

   Yesterday at 12:41:32 PM  guest-32df: ah hahahah

   Yesterday at 12:41:39 PM  guest-32df: Got chatty

   Yesterday at 12:41:59 PM  guest-32df: Over it.

   Yesterday at 12:42:13 PM  guest-32df: Chest lighter

   Yesterday at 12:44:58 PM  guest-32df: <3

   Yesterday at 12:45:48 PM  guest-32df: (Still 42D)

   Yesterday at 05:29:19 PM  guest-380b: its not the councils job to be involved in that.. its the councils job to judge the job of the city manager... they do not

   Yesterday at 05:29:42 PM  guest-380b: get paid.. well they do but nominally.. Brian has a very good salary and is paid to negotiate those contracts in a way that

   Yesterday at 05:29:52 PM  guest-380b: should be easy to explain to the council

   Yesterday at 05:30:53 PM  guest-380b: and its odd that the top private money spender down town is an engineer and from my understanding not the engineer on the 

   Yesterday at 05:31:04 PM  guest-380b: combining of the buildings.. seems a little off

   Yesterday at 05:31:48 PM  guest-380b: and yeah i talked to the guy that was going to open the indoor farmers market and thats not hearsay

   Yesterday at 05:31:58 PM  guest-380b: its not hearsay that opening a business in Forney is ridiculously hard

   Yesterday at 05:32:13 PM  guest-380b: and to me its not to much to ask that someone with an almost half million a year budget

   Yesterday at 05:32:29 PM  guest-380b: be able to do a job in which it can easily be explained to the public and not need consultants

   Yesterday at 05:32:40 PM  guest-380b: and lawyers involved on basic land and renovation deals.

   Yesterday at 10:16:39 PM  guest-567e: farmers market guy refused to put in a public bathroom.  That is why he told me he left.  Sorry but thats not too much to ask
