  1. I would have already moved out of that area. Then again some people love it. Of course these people are complaining about "global warming", because they want any free money that will come their way. It's sort of odd that it's the exact opposite in Death Valley. https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2001-jun-10-me-8861-story.html . Amazingly enough it is still considered the hottest place on earth : https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/highest-recorded-temperature/ . Odd that they haven't had any record temperatures since 1919 and 1972. They're not complaining about the heat.
  2. I hated when they shut down the old Cargill Theater. That was the place to see movies back in the day. At one point up until the early 70's it was a one screen theater, until they turned it into a three screen theater. If the rumor mill is correct they did that remodel after they showed "Gone With the Wind". I wish I would have been old enough to seen one movie on that huge screen. They added the other theaters in 1980 or 1981. I probably saw over 300 movies there.
  3. I swear, you're getting senile. At least I had Hee Haw to watch growing up as a kid :
  4. i don't think they'll get the naming rights, but I think they might have had a chance with the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum back when McGwire and Canseco were playing. Even now it's the RingCentral Coliseum. They haven't won a World Series since 1989, and only have 4 World Series rings since they moved from Philadelphia to Kansas City to Oakland. it's the NBA so ya nevah know.
  5. Since when ? Even in the 70's and 80's it was the cruising zone that's been outlawed now, and I witnessed the event of why cruising and hanging out in parking lots was banned in 1989. The weird thing about that is it happened on the Loop starting at the Taco Bell in front of Wal Mart. Highway 80 was never classy, but it was fun to cruise back in the 80's. I probably remember more about Longview from 1975-1990 than anyone alive on facebook and SDC.
  6. Actually conservatives are more liberal than leftist communists. https://www.columbian.com/news/2018/oct/14/ambrose-nowadays-it-is-conservatives-who-are-the-real-liberals/
  7. The sad thing is many of the Democrats share Xi's philosophy in blending Marxism with Capitalism. Should Xi attempt a Mao type purge the world will be against him, if it is at that level. He can get away with a few murders, but not the mass murders that Moa turned a blind eye to or ordered himself. I wonder how the world would react to this if it happened. This article is speculation, but it's happened in the past and it will eventually happen again.
  8. Pre-1990 all Spring Hill had was Spring Hill State Bank, Graham's convenience store which I'm thinking was the blue building their, Dairy Queen, Driggers that used to be on Pine Tree Rd. across from the P.T. Middle School (now Tejas), an Exxon Station , and a few insurance offices back in the day. Spring Hill has grown though since those times. I don't know if the only Brookshire's in Longview would have been in Spring Hill's city limits back in the day, because I think their city limits began after Hawkins Pkwy.. I still think it's sad that it is the only Brookshire's left in Longview, when there used to be 6 that I can remember plus two Super One's. Spring Hill had some pretty good baseball teams back in the day. I know Billy Brewer was from there, an played against him in an All Star game.
  9. There was until October 7, 1983 when they became incorporated into Longview. Funny thing is I saw many posting on the Facebook site You Know You Grew Up in Longview talking about the old strores and gas stations there before 1983. I remember them having some really good teams during those times, even to the late 80's. I haven't kept up much with them since.
  10. I liked him back in the 70's and 80's. I got to meet him behind the Oil Palace, and gave him two silver dollars to give to his kids. He was a NYPD police officer as his grandfather, father and brother Dan Mahoney were. His brother has written several Private Investigator novels after retiring. We talked about him and his charity organization he was involved in at the time. He was a really nice guy. Going with my favorite song by him :
  11. Plus I think they're afraid to use him in goal line situations. I thought for sure at 4th and 1, they would sneak him in and the game would have went to Carolina. I think they're worried about him getting hurt after the preseason scare.
  12. He brought it on himself, and I hope he understands that he is not above the law.
