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,

case44

More From Lubbock: A Future Lake Close To The City

Posted 10-06-2021 at 09:17 PM by case44


Just when y'all thought that little jut from the Caprock boundary was worth another look, well, in about twenty years, you might be jet-skiing on it. That's right, everyone. Lubbock may just be getting a brand-new lake, and it's going to go in right off East State Loop 289 just to the southeast of town and west of Buffalo Springs Lake. Planners estimate that it will take approximately seventeen years to complete.

As if the aformentioned Leprino move weren't enough, now, we're eventually going to see boaters, fishers, and sunbathers who'd rather not make that long trip to Lake Alan Henry. This could be Lubbock's new hit, and it could spur new lakefront development. It's the new Jim Bertram Lake (also known as Lake 7), but right now, it's very much in the infant stage, pending U.S. Corps of Engineers approval. At any rate, I'll be retired by the time it opens, but the benefit here is that Lubbock will have an additional source of water. Best of all, this will be in a canyon. And you thought Lubbock wasn't scenic, right?? Think again, once you get hold of this project.

This is an absolute Godsend, but many will wonder, "How come this didn't happen sooner??" In any event, things are really mooo...

    Hope it gets built. I don’t know of any particular reason why it wouldn’t be constructed, but 15-20 years is a long time.
