What: bridge closing.
Where: Pelican Island bridge
Might this be associated with the anticipated new bridge to Pelican Island that would enable Port of Galveston to expand capacity?
Anybody know anything as to why this closure occured?
I wondered why this would happen during spring break when tourists and/or pier fishers might want to go to Seawolf Park so I called the Seawolf Park. The guy who answered said the Park was open today and the bridge was only closed for "a little amount of time."
I hope this story didn't prevent someone from coming to the island because they thought they couldn't get to the park at all.
I hope whatever entity caused this work to be done did a better job of notifying police/fire/medical emergency providers than they did with notifying the public.Mar 12, 2014
The reporter totally missed the story here.
This house could have been saved but for the ineffectiveness of the Bayou Vista Fire Dept. They couldn't get water on the fire for a ridiculously long time and the house sat there and burnedFeb 6, 2014
Unfair? When you find feathers where there used to be a canary, it's fair to take a long thorough look at the cat.
COM is so mismanaged, every few months someone has to sue them because they fouled up again. Their HR dept. seems not to have a clue about employment law.
I was a student of Cheryl Odom's at COM and have been successfully using what she taught me for seven or eight years now. I would bet my mama's bottom dollar the only question at issue in the lawsuit is how much she is going to get, not whether she is going to prevail.
Even if her dismissal was appropriate, COM again didn't handle it well enough for Odom and her attorney not to think there was some of our tax money available to them. That whole organization needs a major overhaul.Apr 8, 2013
