Well go for it. I will support it instead of Maks. I hate it I have to spend my money out of Cove. Don't get me wrong, Maks is a nice place, but it doesn't help Cove tax payers.

I don't want any new fee's either, but I would like to see sidewalks in the older parts of town that don't have them so people don't have to walk on the streets. Everything takes money. Now one solution is to just wait until we get more businesses in here to gain more property tax revenue, but of course that could take a few more years. Hopefully a solution will be made that won't hurt out checkbooks.

We need our golf course. Even though it never makes a profit, we need something for people to do. I haven't seen the numbers on how the course is doing this year, but as our city grows more people will use the course and hopefully it will start making a little profit or at least break even.

As far as our EDC, they are doing a great job. There are some smart people working over there and they are trying hard to bring jobs and businesses to our city. Economic Development takes time. It doesn't happen over night. It never has. If you have questions about the EDC go talk to them. They are very nice people. Tell them your concerns and ask them questions about the EDC and there purpose.

Shereka Wright, former collegiate standout at Purdue and member of the WNBA, enters her first season at Alabama as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.

Wright, who began her coaching career at Texas Tech, was responsible for the perimeter players, recruiting, scouting, academics and equipment in Lubbock.

Prior to coaching, she spent two seasons in the WNBA, averaging 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds for the Phoenix Mercury, but missed all of the 2006 season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon during training camp.

Wright was selected as the 13th overall pick in the 2004 WNBA Draft by the Detroit Shock after a stellar collegiate playing career under Kristy Curry at Purdue. She was the third player in program history to be named to the All-Big Ten First Team on three occasions and was also honorable mention Kodak All-America as well as a finalist for the Wade Trophy, Naismith Award and Wooden Award. As a freshman in 2001, Wright was named to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament Team.

Throughout her four-year career, the Boilermakers appeared in four NCAA tournaments, advancing to the national championship game in 2001, the Elite Eight in 2003 and the Sweet 16 in 2004, and won two Big Ten regular season titles (2001, 02) and a pair of Big Ten Tournament crowns (2003, 04).

Wright graduated from Purdue in 2004 with a degree in health and fitness.

Wright at Copperas Cove High School: 2000 USA Today Player of the Year ... 2000 Gatorade National Player of the Year ... 2000 Rawlings/WBCA Player of the Year ... first team Parade All-American ... Nike/WBCA All-American ... averaged 25.4 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.9 blocks per game as a senior ... MVP of the prestigious national Tournament of Champions as a junior and senior ... set school records with 3,269 points, 1,148 rebounds and 220 blocks ... became the 36th player and fourth Texan to record 3,000 points in a high school career ... helped Cove to 118-10 four-year record ... ranked No. 9 prospect by Blue Star and No. 26 by All-Star Girls Report ... basketball coach was Skip Townsend.

She is the only Cove player to make it to the WNBA. So what do you think?

Should she get a street named after her?

Does anyone know why she left the WNBA? Was it because her injury?

Well a demolition permit has been taken out by Mr. Nauert for his property next to his business Nauerts Auto Supply on 190. I am glad that this is finally happening. This was long overdue, but finally glad this eyesore will be removed. Thank you Mr. Nauert.
