Agree with sharober. If the "city of lubbock" owns LP&L (owned by the citizens...that's crap) they know of all the problems this monopoly is causing and they expose and then help cover up the inconsistencies to the point of paying the former CEO $700,000 severance to keep it all quiet from the citizen tax payers. I used SPEC in the past and never had problems with them. Their customer service was superb and fair even if I was behind, they really worked with me on the bill which I always paid. LP&L customer service is especially rude in person if you go directly to the office and just as bad on the phone. We citizens don't "OWN" a penny in LP&L and I get tired of hearing that slogan that says we do. I know I personally don't own any stock in it and very much miss having the choice of electric companies in Lubbock. It seems city council has little say also, except to pay them over inflated salaries and fees from our tax dollars the same as they raise their own salaries for the "highest" held jobs in city council. Most cities have private electric companies to choose from...not Lubbock.

If the city is simply charging the same price per square foot of developed land, (perhaps 1 tenth of a cent/sqft for residence or business - asphalt and concrete also count as developed) with no minimum or maximum, that would be fair to everyone.

If someone is already on Probation, they were convicted, or pled guilty, to a crime, and were still serving their sentence. I am guessing the 6 years was the remainder of his probation time, which he violated. Crashing a vehicle while driving drunk, on probation, is a very strong sign that someone needs supplemental rehabilitation, and time away from the public. Could you imagine the collateral damage if a young child was hurt in that collision.

This would be the most unfair tax ever!!! A large percent of traffic is from vehicles coming in to lubbock from out of the county. Many are large trucks hauling in and out of lubbock, these vehicles cause the greatest damamage. The roads should be kept up from the sales tax revenue which is generated, not just from local citizens but people coming from outside the city. A large group of which come from New Mexico. It is stupid to make locals pay and others not!!

If they do this then the money will just go to a neighboring state. People already go to other states to go to casinos. We loose that every year. If people want to gamble they will find a way to do it.

If a Lubbock resident, with intimate friends in LPD, admitted to drinking 4 beers in Brownfield, and soon afterwards crashes at the 2100 block of Lubbock Road, would such crash, upon confirmation of B.A.C. above 0.08 be a DWI crash statistic for that city, even though the crash was just outside the Brownfield city limit? Would crooked cops of either city tamper with the blood sample to circumvent a DWI arrest of an intimate friend, or to stay off the top 10 list? http://www.brownfieldonline.com/Content/Local/Local/Article/Two-sent-to-hospital-after-one-vehicle-accident/5/5/2142

I've been a friend of Mr. Wallace for over 15 years. Let's all of us try and not jump to any conclusions or conspiracy theories just right yet. I'm sure in due time all the facts and evidence will be released. RIP

Cal Brints buys all his produce from the same place all the super markets do, keystones the price, then claims that it's "fresh local produce". I can't believe you people are so naive. Just because he's an old man doesn't mean he can't be dishonest. Go check out their daily "farmers market" on 19th and Ave A (it's really a fruit stand with some poor soul working it). Once or twice a week at 8am a produce truck pulls up and unloads produce from guess where!? WHEREVERS CHEAPEST! Ask to have a look in the cooler at the "farmers market" you will see all the "fresh local produce" in it's packaging from out of state. I've even seen them selling the fruit with out of state stickers still on it! What a scam.

The 15 mouthpieces the mayor & council created, said what the mayor wanted them to say. How about a committee chosen by the citizens, instead of the council? As a citizen, I declare the words of the municipal mouthpieces as invalid. Is there anyone out there, not on the municipal payroll, that considers the council mouthpieces to be the voice of the citizens?

This sounds like it might be an organized crime hit. Since the victim was once a judge, it would not be at all unusual for him to have acted in some capacity against the drug kings that are threatening all of us. The alleged murderer is not a babe in the woods. This is one to follow & closely
