Commentary has mentioned a time or two before the escalating congestion down the street at I-10 and Studemont/Studewood and I-10 at Heights/Yale.  It is a growing mess thanks to the development around the new Walmart and the new Kroger on Studewood/Studemont and the I-10 shoulder work.  It is very frustrating.  A lot of times I end up having to snake around and get across I-10 and Taylor. On a related note, Commentary got sent an email from a Heights resident to certain H-Town Council Members.  Check this:

I am a resident of the Heights and want to share a concern I have with traffic in the neighborhood.  Traffic on Heights and Yale close to I-10 intersection has become very congested and has begun to back up north to White Oak and South to the rail road tracks.   I realize the Shepherd/I-10 construction may be flowing over, but it has become ridiculous at times and is causing more traffic in the neighborhood with people cutting through for shorter routes.   Additionally, we use the trails in the neighborhood and take my child for bike rides and have to deal with vehicles speeding down Yale. 

Can you tell me what the city if doing about these issues as I am sure it is not the first time it has been raised?  I see a lot of neighborhood development and as result increased home values, but no further investment other than paved roads on Yale.  Much of this has also been a result of the development on Yale south of I-10, but I see no increased infrastructure to handle the traffic – why?  With regard to speeding vehicles on Yale – are any more lights planned for this street to slow the speeds down?

Ditto!  Of course I think it is only going to get worse. 

If you watch TV you probably know that “42” about Jackie Robinson will be at a local theater near you this Friday. Name a Hall of Fame great that also had his numero 42 retired?

The Mayor was on Khambrel’s show yesterday.  She did OK.

Foreign affairs experts are trying to figure out what the North Korean leader is up to.  Well we know he’s a big fan of the NBA.  I wonder if they have considered offering him courtside seats to Lakers games in exchange for his nukes.

They gave out commemorative baseballs at The Yard this past Saturday night after the game.  They don’t hand them out on the way in if you know what I mean.  The commemorative balls look a bit cheesy.

Commentary snagged foul balls numero 2 and 3 Saturday night.  I handed them off to a couple of kids – drats!

The team is on a nine game West Coast roadie.

San Luis retired Hall of Fame great Bruce Sutter’s numero 42 a few years ago of course.

The ‘Stros are not a good team today.  The weekend attendance stunk.    They strike out too many times.  Carter is hitting .091, Wallace is at .059, and Ankiel is at .083.  Wallace needs to find his game or he may be Oklahoma City bound.  We are 1-5 and so are the Fish, Brewers, Bucs, and Padres.  If we don’t become a more interesting team I don’t see attendance improving when we get home.
