TRUE STORY! Driving in Dallas. First you must learn to pronounce the city name. It is DAL-LUS, or DAA-LIS depending on if you live inside or outside LBJ Freeway. Next, if your Mapsco is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and buy a new one. If in Denton County and your Mapsco is one-day-old, then it is already obsolete. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. (Frisco has screwed everything up.) Dallas has its own version of traffic rules... "Hold on and pray." There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Dallas . We all drive like that. All directions start with, "Get on Beltline," which has no beginning and no end. (It REALLY DOESN'T!!!) The morning rush hour is from 6 to 10. The evening rush hour is from 3 to 7. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended, cussed out and possibly shot. When you are the first one on the starting line, count to five when the light turns green before going to avoid crashing with all the ...
Looks like Flower Mound is not the only government entity lowering the property tax rate. This is from the Dallas Morning News "Hits and Misses" editorial. In Denton County, one number gets a little smaller If you live in Denton County, a bit of good news. Your county budget grew by $15 million, but, thanks in part to rising values, your elected leaders found a way to reduce your property tax rate. The new number is 27.22 cents per $100 in property valuation, down from 28.49 cents. That’s $12.71 less for a house valued at $100,000, making it mostly a symbolic cut, especially if your property value went up. But, still, it’s symbolism that should matter to county residents, when everything else seems to cost more these days. By the way, property values are up all across North Texas. Any chance this sort of thinking is contagious?

Filed my property tax protest with Denton County online and got a hearing date instead of a settlement offer. I was under the impression that the county couldn't legally raise our assessed value more than 10%, but they did. I do understand that property values have spiked and our rates are going up some this year. -anyone else get an assessment bump greater than 10%? -have you been successful in getting your assessment reduced this year?

This is a post I did for American Cowboy, one of the post that caused me to decide to leave the site. 6 The Four Sixes Burnett Family Captain Samuel “Burk” Burnett Born in Bates County, Missouri, on Jan. 1, 1849, to Jeremiah and Mary Turner Burnett, Samuel Burk Burnett became one of the most well known and respected ranchers in Texas. His parents were in the farming business, but in 1857-58, conditions caused them to move from Missouri to Denton County, Texas, where Jerry Burnett became involved in the cattle business. Burk, 10 years old at the time of the move, began watching the nature of the cow business and learned from his father. At age 19, Burk went into business for himself with the purchase of 100 head of cattle, which were wearing the 6 brand. With the title to the cattle came ownership of the brand. Burnett survived the panic of 1873 by holding over 1,100 steers he had driven to market in Wichita, Kansas through the winter. The next year, he sold the cattle for a profit of $10,000. He was o ...

When you go to the voters box next week for early voting, vote for the candidates that will best serve Denton County. In the County Clerk race only one candidate knows EVERY aspect of the duties needed to best serve you the citizens. I have been with the clerk's office for over ten years. I have interviewed or reviewed every employee we have or have had. In my time not one person that has worked for us is more qualified to be your County Clerk than DLynne Shelton. I am not rumor mongering, lying, and have no personal agenda. I am a father of four young kids being raised in Denton. I am a former member of the GoP executive committee. I am an ardent supporter of what is best for Denton with the volunteer history past and present to prove it. When I ask you to support someone it is because I believe they are the best possible option. Vote Dlynne Shelton, you will be glad you did!

Happy New Year! It is an honor to serve as a police officer for the Town of Double Oak and to work closely with surrounding municipalities delivering law enforcement services. Those of us who live in southern Denton County are blessed with a low crime rate, low tax rate, excellent school districts, and great economic opportunities. Ten years ago I moved our family to Denton County for all of these reasons and plan to serve in law enforcement and reside here for the rest of my professional life. Post retirement I was selected to serve as the Double Oak Police Department Chief. It was a great opportunity to have the Andy Griffith small town experience and bring skills and guidance gained working for Dallas PD and Coppell to the officer corps. I quickly realized that big department, suburban department, or small department you find police work is police work, what changes are the resources available and scale, not the mission. Budgeting for one police car or fourteen police cars; leading seven officers or si ...

Robert Dolford “Bob” Jones. From Slave to Wealthy Landowner He was born a slave in 1850, but that didn’t stop John Dolford “Bob” Jones from becoming one of the most prosperous landowners along the Tarrant County/Denton County line. His mother, Elizabeth, was owned by his white father, Leazer Alvis Jones. After the Civil War when he was freed, Bob bought land around Roanoke from his father (who returned to his white family in Arkansas). In 1874, Bob married Almeady Chisum, who was the daughter of a wealthy cattleman from Bolivar, John Chisum, and his slave, Jensie. Bob and Almeady had 10 children who helped them tend the land. Bob kept buying land, and eventually had over 1,600 acres. He used his wealth to benefit others. In 1902, he had built Mount Carmel Baptist Church, which burned around 1965, but is fondly remembered. When their own children were small, he had to frequently disrupt their ranch routine to bring his children to Denton to go to school. Other times, he hired a teacher to come t ...

Ina Knowles Has a Brush With Bonnie and Clyde by Lois Zook Wauson Ina Knowles lived in the little town of Roanoke, in Tarrant County, south of Denton Texas. I talked to her several years ago. She was bright eyed, spry, grey-haired with a memory that was sharp as a tack. She was 87 years old, and got really excited when she told me the story about the day she actually really did have a brush with Bonnie and Clyde. She sat in her chair, a tiny little wiry woman with twinkling eyes, remembering every detail of that spring day in North Texas. It was in 1933 and a warm spring Sunday afternoon in Denton County. The young couple hadn’t been married very long. Ina Knowles was still a young bride 17 years old. She and her husband Joe lived on a farm west of Roanoke with another couple. They had run off and got married in Oklahoma. They both loved the outdoors and Joe loved fishing. Ina, in a pretty flowered dress, walked with her friend Thelma up on Swinging Bridge that swung across Denton Creek northeast of the ...
Dear Senator Nelson and Rep. Parker, Below is an article that was forwarded to us regarding the Special Session. It is our belief that if both Senator Nelson and Rep. Parker ask for and sponsored the Riverwalk MMD in their respective chambers, Mr. Perry would favorably consider adding the proposal to the special session. In the last session, 12 Municipal Management Districts were requested and were voted out of the House, two as late as May 17th, and all but one was created including Districts in Denton County. Below are excerpts from an article by Centurion American about the ramifications if the Riverwalk MMD is not created: "We were going to spend $3 million to $4 million in arts, monuments, an amphitheater and lighting," Moayedi said. "We were going to have a lot of amenities to make this better. But now, we'll have to reassess all of that." Moayedi had also told the council that instead of having 950 more apartment units constructed -- the original plan called for 1,250 units, and 300 have already .. ...

Monday Morning Headlines 02/25/13 It's going to be a wicked, windy day across North Texas and it could create some dicey conditions for drivers and pilots. The National Weather Service has posted a wind advisory as meteorologists expect strong west winds to move into North Texas by late morning and continue through late tonight. Sustained winds of 25-to-35 miles-an-hour are expected with some gusts approaching 50. Because most of the runways at DFW Airport, Love Field, Meacham and Alliance airports run generally north-to-south, strong and variable west winds can make take-offs and landings very tricky. A Denton County man is still in the hospital after being badly cut by debris from Saturday's crash at Daytona International Speedway. It happened on the final lap of Saturday's Dayton 300.

Photos: More than 50 charged in Thomasville drug sting THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Police say more than 50 people were charged Thursday morning in connection with a sting targeting drug traffickers across Thomasville.

I am not a fighter and never was. I am so sick of paying hard earned money for injustice. If their dad wants to beat the crap out them its obviously okay with Denton County.

No one has not one family member not one friend no one that was in their lives since they were born has seen them or talked to them. I lost my own children in a Custody hearing that was such a farce its horrible. Judge Bailey said Mrs. Morrow you are emotionally abusing and coercing your children.

Voter repression in Texas. An article in the Dallas Morning News this morning reports the problems invented by the Republican dominated legislature's voter suppression drive. It details some of the problems created for college/university voter registration drives, in this case on the University of Texas at Dallas campus. One rather minor requirement is that only Texas residents can collect voter registration cards. But the fun really begins later. First, if a Texas resident is going to participate in a voter registration drive (s)he must undergo training from the county election officials.. O.K. But UTD is located on the county line between Collin County and Dallas County. As luck would have it some dorms are located in Collin County and others in Dallas County. So, to participate in such a drive on that campus, one must undergo training in two counties. (Actually, given the nature of the area, it wouldn't surprise me if some students resided in Denton County as well -- it's probably about a 20 minute dri ...
On August 6, 1925, R. L. Parsons, a deputy sheriff of Denton County, was shot to death on Hickory Street, two blocks east of the courthouse. W.A. Martin was charged with this crime and was arrested in his home after a gun battle with the Sheriff's posse. This was not an isolated case of murder. Denton County in the twenties was not the tame place we know it to be today. With Bonnie and Clyde yet a decade away and the wild west not a generation past, lawlessness was not at all an uncommon phenomena. Many of the customs of the western American frontier, experiencing cultural lag, were still in evidence here. During this period a group of Denton toughs, under the leadership of Nathan A. and Yancey Story evolved from small-time thieves into a well-organized gang of burglars and bank robbers. Headquartered on the Story ranch, 7 miles south of Argyle, they rifled Denton County for booty. Key members of the gang were men like Shelby Stiff, Ben Collier and W.A. Martin. (1923 and 1924, with W.M. Swinney as sheriff ...

Denton County is arming its residents with insect repellent to help fight mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus. The county completed aerial spraying earlier this week and is now handing out free bug spray. Denton Co giving away free bug repellent "We couldn't really afford it [insect repellent]. Now that they are giving it out free. It helps prevent my son from getting the virus," Denton resident Rhonda Miller said. Miller is not alone. Denton County residents expressed their excitement about the free spray at the Denton County Health Department on Wednesday. "It's awesome," Denton resident Paul Payne said. "Anything to prevent bites is good." Cutter donated 5,000 cans of insect repellent to the county. Denton County Health Department spokesperson Sarah McKinney stressed the importance of repellent and said aerial spraying and ground spraying can not work alone. "It is something we forget about, even with this West Nile business going on. We still have to remember to put the repellent on. Hopefully, it ...

A second Denton County resident has died from the West Nile Virus, county health officials said Friday.
Hey Town Hall *** yes if the shoe fits wear it, this post is for you, yes you in trailer. From Ch 8, I pulled this. So far in 2012, Denton County has reported 119 cases of West Nile. County officials say they are seeing five to six new cases a day, which is the highest rate of infection in Texas. Yes, I know you guys put up the invisible force field around PV, that keeps the mosquitoes out, so I just wanted to thank you... Coming down 380 the other night mosquitoes were bouncing all over my car, but when I hit the Town of PV, Uh Oh It's magic, they were gone. Like they hit a brick wall. On the serious side, I hope no one in PV gets it, because if I owned a truck like Big Foot, I would let them borrow it and drive it right over that eye sore of a trailer. Of course when it was empty. Oh then through the organic garden that one person was so worried about. Seriously we need a recall vote on everyone up there. Okay that's my rant for the night, everyone enjoy your weekend.

* * * * * * * August 22, 2012 – Denton County Judge, Mary Horn, has signed a West Nile Virus Health Emergency declaration and requested that the Department of State Health Services make additional resources available to Denton County in the form of aerial spraying. The declaration of a Health Emergency will allow the County to request State and Federal resources. However, as in Dallas County, the municipalities in Denton County will determine whether they wish to be included in the spraying. The Town of Little Elm will have an Emergency Council Meeting on August 23, 2012 to discuss and take action on the options presented to them by Denton County in regards to aerial spraying. The meeting will take place at Town Hall Center – Council Conference Room at 5 pm. Per the Town of Little Elm’s Mosquito Management and Response plan, Town staff will continue to educate the public about mosquitoes and ways to avoid them, apply larvicides to breeding sites, intensify mosquito surveillance measures and inspec ...

Tonight my city in Denton County is getting it. Just wondering if the mosquitos don't get you, the insecticide just might. sigh

There is an outbreak of the West Nile Virus in Dallas due to the warm winter with no freeze to kill off the mosquitos. Yesterday on the radio on my way to work a commercial came on from the Denton County health department saying to spray with bug spray before going outside and to look for bug spray WITH deet! I thought Deet was the chemical we are warned UNsafe and when buying bugspray we should make sure to NOT but the ones with Deet! WTH!!!??? This is concerning to me bcuz the state is now airial spraying in Dallas for mosquitos and now we are being told to spray ourselves with DEET!!! Call me a conspiritist or what have you, but either way we are SOL! I guess its just a slower death to protect from the mosquitos than to contact West Nile Virus!

We should all be vigilant against West Nile Virus. As of Aug. 6, there have been 130 cases in Dallas County, 86 in Tarrant County, 49 in Denton County, 10 in Collin County, four in Johnson County, four in Kaufman County, eight in Ellis County, and one in Hunt County. West Nile Virus transmission cycle (From The Mayo Clinic) When a mosquito bites an infected bird, the virus enters the mosquito's bloodstream and eventually moves into the salivary glands. When an infected mosquito bites an animal or a human, the virus is passed into the host's bloodstream, where it may cause serious illness. Birds are the main animal reservoirs for the virus, and the mosquitoes are the transmitters (vectors). Humans and other animals don't pass the virus on to other humans or animals.
County health officials have confirmed 13 more human cases of West Nile Virus in the past week, bringing the total number of cases in Denton County to 31.
