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 .. ...
Good Evening Denton County Scanner Followers It is time for us to do some of our housekeeping that we will have to do every now and then to keep our followers informed of what we do and what the rules are. So with that being said, here we go: About Us: We are group of volunteers that monitors scanners in the Denton County area and post about incidents that we hear that are occurring. We are all volunteers and we do have lives of our own that we attend too. We do try and keep you updated as best we can. We will miss incidents. We do not identify ourselves by name, but use the letter A followed by a number. This is more of an administrative thing more than anything. Incidents: Like was said above we post calls that we hear while we are monitoring. We do not post basic EMS calls, as that is normally the majority of calls that FD/EMS runs. You will see things posted such as Fires, smoke/odor investigations, accidents, etc. As far as law enforcement calls go we will not post any incidents regarding ...

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. More than a dozen cars piled up with some debris flying over or through a 22-foot fence. Krum resident Eddie Huckaby received a deep gash on one leg when he was hit by a three-foot piece of metal. He went through emergenc ...
