Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings "Case's Column". I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, I'll set aside a place here for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

Regards,

Two Interstate Corridors Sorely Needed In Texas

Posted 06-25-2016 at 09:20 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

For a while, you've read my harpings on the latest interstate projects going on in my home state of Texas. I've given you updates on I-69, and in the future, I'm planning to get you some word on the new I-14 corridor, currently just in Central Texas, but will eventually be stretching from West Texas to East Texas.

Despite the money woes of our precious Texas Department of Transportation, the state is still in need for improved mobility in some key locations. ...

The Right Place, But The Wrong Time? Or Perhaps, It's....

Posted 06-21-2016 at 05:24 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Seemingly, every time I get the itch to write, I'm in the wrong place. I wouldn't be at my computer, or I'm in my car in the middle of somewhere, or eating in some restaurant when I'd get an idea for a blog, but am nowhere near a place to write ideas down.

Ideas have been captured on to a napkin or a piece of scratch paper. That's sometimes. Other times? I had an idea (I mean, a really good idea) in the wrong place and would wind up losing it eventually, never...

Las Colinas: Still Not Finished After All These Years

Posted 06-18-2016 at 08:41 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The vision began about four decades ago. Ben Carpenter, longtime Dallas developer, had a dream for his ranch. That dream turned into reality, and businesses and residents would begin flocking to a section of Irving, Texas, which today bears the name of Las Colinas. It's a spectacular combination of businesses, restaurants, hotels, shops, and residences, all centered around its highly-publicized urban center core.

As for the urban center itself, well, here...

Gearing Up For Corpus Christi This Coming Fall

Posted 06-17-2016 at 09:32 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The staycation is over for this writer, but now, the focus shifts over to another time and a real road trip for case44. This fall, my sights will be set on getting back to Corpus Christi, and this time, it'll be me spending a full week there.

The trip into that city will be just my fourth in twenty years, so I owe it to myself to spend some time in an oceanfront city after many vacationers have already wrapped up their summers. Incredibly, it's a wonder...

Peter Marshall at 90: Still Going Strong Today

Posted 06-16-2016 at 07:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

You might not see him much on TV anymore, but you can hear him on the radio. Actually, you can take the shortcut and listen to him online.

Remember Peter Marshall, former host of TV's "Hollywood Squares"? Well, he is now one of the deejays you can hear on the "Music Of Your Life" channel. At age 90, he's still getting after it, and he's certainly not slowing down. Many people tend to forget that Peter was (and still is) also a big-band singer,...
