West Texas News from San Angelo
in Bell Street Reconstruction Project Delayed
I just wish they'd blade the asphalt off Bell street until it can be repaired..... The under surface road bed would be much better to drive on than what's there currently. I hit a bump last week that jerked the wheel out of my hand and threw my truck into the oncoming lane of traffic. Fortunately nobody was coming for a head on collision........ When that happens to someone else and injury or death does occur, I hope the city has about 50 million set aside to make the award because they knew it has been a hazardous road and have let it progress to it's current condition by years of neglect.
in Why Freebirds Left San Angelo
Nothing but greed. The smell of oil made this town crazy and the sad part is there's no oil in THIS town but by god they want to charge like it.
I have a couple of friends with rent houses, just simple rent houses on the north side, and they were immediately pressured to raise their rents by other landlords when the town lost it collective mind and everyone rushed to get their piece of the oil dollar. To their credit they only raised rents when taxes were raised because they weren't looking to squeeze people out of every dime they had.
I wonder how many companies, businesses, landlords, etc. are still adding a "fuel surcharge" from when the gas was $4 a gallon a few YEARS ago?
in Family to Receive a $850K Settlement After Death of ASU Football Player
Although the dealership probably had insurance. I feel that the money the family recieved should be used to pay the dealership for the damaged cars and property their son caused. I hope they do the right thing. I wish their son hadn't lost his life over something so stupid. Everybody blames the drugs.... but one has to smoke it, snort it or shoot it. The drug don't do it themselves. It's a choice and obviously he made the wrong one.
Small businesses in this town don't stand a chance. That is why you see so many vacant buildins and spaces. I thought when I moved back to San Angelo after being gone for over 30 years I would open a business but the gut feeling I got when checking into it told me NO WAY!! Sure glad I didn't. Seems like the average time in San Angelo is 5 yr. for a business if that long.
I wonder how many of the building owner's employees received a doubling of their pay. I agree Kippy, any whisper of an oil resurgence brings higher prices/rents very quickly from landlords and some business owners, but screaming, yelling and stomping for a pay raise in this town hardly gets those same people's attention. I was hoping the business would just relocate locally and continue to serve.
I hope this delay is not named the Chadbourne Street Project with it's high price tag.
This is so wrong! The student was in the wrong for being at the auto place in the first place! I hope the family has to pay for the damaged cars he tore up! And they need to to step up to the plate and take ownership of the fact that their boy was in the wrong! I believe what money they get will,bring them no good, as it was gotten in the wrong!!
in County Buys Builder’s Risk Insurance for New Jail
So how does this effect the youth that use the 4h shooting facility? From what I've heard the 4h shooting area has been put on hold ever since the county land has been taken back to house this new detention center. I would really hate to think this is what our county has done. Is this true? If so, is there anything in the works for these kid somewhere else if they have to relocate?
My god, there is retail space in the Uptown area around the Galleria in Houston that doesn't charge that much per RSF.
....strikes once again. "Buy Local" they all say but then they gouge business owners for the privilege of trying to have a small business, you know the American Dream? Simply @#&%$ ridiculous.
I will reword this so I don't sound too critical of the property owner. Maybe he should change his name to Elle since he won't get a W on this deal. Pure and simple greed. Unfortunately it runs through San Angelo rampant because property owners seem to think San Angelo = Midland. No it doesn't. The little flash in the pan with the oil got the frack out pretty quick and please don't think that the new oil find hours from San Angelo means everyone in town should up the rent, sale price on homes, etc. Absolutely stupid. Can you count the number of businesses this town has dumped on and run off? And it all comes back to greed. Greed of the city for not passing tax breaks to keep businesses here (Levis...Mitsubishi...etc) to property owners thinking they sit on gold mines. How long did that building sit empty once Blockbuster shut down? And is it really a cash cow? Hardly. Need a hotel room? Look around and all the empty ones in town now because more than a few people thought oil is here to stay. I love how those $200 a night rooms are now cut rate....they deserve that and unfortunately this property owner deserves to enjoy that property tax for an empty building. Greed.
I guess with the rent going up astronomically, the "Smile" on that Moose will be turning into a "Frown" and the cash loan store next door will be searching for their own loan to make the monthly rent payments.........
