Unfortunately, when you condition people for brutality, their conditioning does not turn off by the mere blowing of a whistle. It is sad that the most brutal players receive the highest praise and best scholarships.

The transfer of funds may not create NEW taxes or fees, but does it increase any old taxes or fees. In other words, where does this revenue fund come from, and which of us have to pay to get such fund replenished.

If you own the land, you own the airspace above it as well, and have to be compensated to give permission if a well is to be on the surface of your land (in the event that someone else owns the water or mineral rights). If you own the water or other mineral rights, you must be adequately compensated if anyone else takes or imposes restrictions on your property, or use thereof. Unfortunately, corrupt officials think that they have the right to take or restrict property of others, if such corruptly sanctioned theft or enslavement suits their agenda.

Putting a cap of 150k sqft circumvents the "fairness" doctrine proposed by the mayor concerning South Plains Mall. They have over 200 million square feet of non-porous land, subsequently, would be paying less than 1/10th as much per sqft as the average business. Why not simply charge a property tax for street and drainage infrastructure of 2 cents per $1000 in value per year, and eliminate all taxes and fees on utility bills? If the average home price is 130k, the revenue is virtually the same as the current storm fee. The burden is shifted to those with more property, or at least more valuable property. Council members who represent the people will support shifting the fee to a property tax. Officials prone to heart attacks, who serve themselves, will keep the system that exempts their golf courses and other valuable properties.

People move out of the city to get out of the municipal tax base. Is the city going to try and annex the entire county, and annex the other school districts into a Lubbock Unified School District? Would the new headquarters be in the mayor's newly dreamed municipal hall?

I guess this year it is the Unfair. After all, who wants to walk on wet ground with wet high voltage cables by your feet. Can any metallic high voltage ride be operated in such conditions? We should move the fair to late July. Either the storms will follow the fair, and we can get rain to cool down the 100 degree streets, or it will be dry, and the fair can go on.

If we are in a bona-fide drought, golf courses should also be banned from using water from the aquifer, except for the same days and times the city allows for those who use metered water, for such landscape irrigation. If there are politicians who create ordinances with loopholes for their H20 or other exploitation; I pray that they either repent & rewrite the law to include their land and themselves to such subjugation, or resign, so that they are no longer subject to being stricken down and hospitalized each year, by the lord.

Will the Lubbock mayor & city council revoke their Stage II drought restrictions due to the flood?

I wonder who "accidentally" provided alcohol to the underage person?
