Laura,
It's sad to see that Fork & Spoon is leaving. But, seeing how they have made other peoples lives enjoyable and not had time for themselves (I would assume), it's time they enjoy their lives and do things that make them happy. Hopefully they sale it to someone that will keep it up and running and clean on the inside and outside, like it is now. Good luck to the family and thank you!
On a different subject, about the now old Blocker school in Texas City. I'm curious what the city has decided to use it for. This may not be for you to write about since it's not a business, but it would be nice if someone could dig for some news on it. A suggestion I would have, is to talk with COM and see if they would offer their dual-credit courses for current Texas City high school (and any other schools) students taking them and have them use the old Blocker for the classes. Then maybe they could have more access for other high school students to take the dual-credit courses too. They could even offer more advanced dual-credit courses like PTech classes or nursing or whatever. Just a thought I wanted to pass on, that and I live next to it. I'd rather see it be an advanced school, than a school for kids that don't want to be in school.

Donnie B, "No firm plans have been made for the current Blocker campus at 400 14th St. N., but school officials are looking at converting the district’s oldest campus into a regional high school industrial and vocational training campus that could include students from across the county."

Plans may have changed since 2011.

I do recall a few months ago seeing some engineers, or architects, walking around by the old Whataburger with some plans. I think a school official was with them. Guess they were trying to get a visual of proposed work. Hopefully it happens. It would definitely get used.
