Welcome To Case's Column

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. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

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, there's a place below 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.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Lubbock's Biggest Growth Year? Could Be This One

There's been more buzz and more positivism over the last few years up on the Caprock. My last trip to Lubbock, Texas, answered some questions. With the answers I literally saw, there's plenty of reason for optimism.

Now, they still have a ways to go, but their outskirts are seeing new residences going up in the west and south. And I mean, lots of them. Our friend shoe01 rummaged up this following link to Lubbock's NBC station, which just summed up what's been a good year for the Hub City.

State Loop 88 (Lubbock's new Outer Loop) just broke ground officially, and this is the impetus to lead more people to lure others to the area. With more folks coming to Texas than ever before, the time is really right for Lubbock to take one more step forward.

    Lots of growth over the past five years. There are factors, both controllable and not, that could slow things a bit. However, things look really good right now there.
