    OUCH !!!!!

    realize that a large percentage of the increase in taxes due to valuations and to the proposed rate hike will be sent to Austin as part of Robin Hood funding... unless I have my math wrong I am thinking something like 40-45% will be "Robin Hood-ed". My bet is the idiot from fiscal...

    Rangers, Arlington, starting the dance...

    I would argue that from where I sit there has been precious little economic benefits for the city of Arlington and its citizens. Both billionaire owners profited nicely though.... How long until Six Flags figures out how to use the city to squeeze taxpayers?

    Rangers, Arlington, starting the dance...

    kool aid drinker... fundamentally the reason why there is no development around the MLB and NFL stadiums is that people spend their entire entertainment budget inside the facility. As a matter of fact they are designed to do just that so as to benefit the owner. The only way Texas Live gets...

    Rangers, Arlington, starting the dance...

    It's how the game is played... poor Rangers... have the 11th oldest facility so obviously the good taxpayers of Arlington should fund half their new stadium to the tune of nearly half a billion dollars...

    History of High School stadium development

    FISD hiking tax rate

    that is my impression as well. I was one of those folks who complained that they hadn't been great watchdogs prior to the recession. I believe a highlight of Reedy's legacy is that he changed that culture over his last 5 years as superintendent. In any case, we all knew this day was going...

    FISD hiking tax rate

    My main problem with him as that he seemed to have the answer before knowing what the problems were. Don't get me wrong, I don't think any of the candidates were totally dialed in on the funding issues, but at least Anjali and Phil were willing to listen and learn instead of just saying "no new...

    FISD hiking tax rate

    You have no idea what you are talking about. There maybe some incremental cost in maintenance for small schools, but the vast majority of the costs just follow the students - teachers salaries, supplies, electricity, etc. You might be able to get some economy of scale on the school principal...
