    You must know that as I write these weekly columns, I try to keep a positive spin on things. After all, to me that’s what assets really boils down to.
    On the other hand, sometimes it is hard to pretend all is right in the world, when it really isn’t.

  • Citizens, county mull fate of A-19a tract in White Rock

    A 60-acre plot of land known as A-19a, in the county’s possession since 2002, is getting a renewed focus by officials and it could be the home of a major new development for White Rock.

    Since the Department of Energy transferred ownership of the parcel, the county has made two failed attempts to sell the land outright to developers.
