Richwoods and Lawler Park are now Zoned for Curtsinger Elementary

Posted by    |    January 31st, 2012 at 12:09 am

 Frisco ISD has had it in its plans for years, and they have definately stuck with it.

The City and School has always voiced that even with the tremendous growth of Frisco and the ongoing future growth, they have always said that they will do everything they can to stay small.  And boy are they.

The latest change has been changing the “never in stone” zones that each neighborhood will attend.  Currently, even before opening, Richwoods and Lawler Park students were slated to attend Isbell.  Scratch that!  Now they will both feed into Curtsinger.  Richwoods plans to have around 1,600 homes and Lawler Park around 643 homes.

Now lets continue to Middle School.  Both developments originally zoned for Scoggins, but now will attend Vandeventer.

Lastly High School.  Here is where it gets pretty wild.  Centennial High faces East and across the street is Richwoods.  Common sense says Centennial is it, WRONG!  Both Richwoods and Lawler Park students will attend Liberty High, less than one mile East of both developments.

That’s not it.  In 2014, yet again, both Richwoods and Lawler Park students will again change High schools to Frisco’s 7th high school yet to be named on Independence between Main and Eldorado.

Now that’s a lot of kids!

FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas

Posted by    |    December 24th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Pizza Hut will no longer be a name-in-title sponsor of Pizza Hut Park at the end of the year. Name-in-title sponsorships are important revenue generators for venues such as this one, and so we suspect FC Dallas’ move to name their venue FC Dallas Stadium is a temporary measure.

Pizza Hut is seeking larger venues and other professional sports to sponsor, but most venues associated with the major sports are taken. So is this about a shift in strategy or simply a matter of cost? The new FC Dallas Stadium is part of the fabric that is Frisco, so we anticipate an organization that is interested in serving Frisco and other nearby communities will come forward.

Before the name comes off, Pizza Hut will enjoy having its name associated with a sell out crowd expected to attend the NCAA Football Championship Game between Sam Houston State University and North Dakota State University. Sam Houston State,14-0, will face the North Dakota State Bearkats,13-1, on Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 1 p.m.

Implosion of Collin power plant in Frisco failed at first, but not 2 hours later

Posted by    |    August 8th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

On July 1st in Frisco something took place that not too many people know about.  A building imploded.

After a two hour wait, the Collin power plant came down in just seconds.  WFAA said that two out of fourteen explosives didn’t go off on the first try.  The head project engineer comments were very odd to me at the time regarding why there was a problem on the first round, but I get it now.

He blamed it on the weather.  This was before we started the 30+ days in a row topping over 100 degrees.  He said the heat magnifies on the steel and really causes things to melt and create problems when blowing up buildings.  The Plano bomb squad was called in for the second try, which was a success.
