Might it be called Bolixit?

While there’s no grammatically smooth way to give the idea of removing Bolivar Peninsula from Galveston County, a meeting in Crystal Beach on Saturday showed there was interest in talking about it.

The Daily News should look at donors to Middleton’s campaign. It seems the people of Bolivar Peninsula are about to get railroaded into some scheme that isn’t yet clear.

Well, give a little credit for the elected officials on the Chambers County side of the issue for at least showing up to the town hall....
With two weeks notice, you'd think ONE of the Galveston County elected folks could have made it..........
But, obviously I thought wrong......

For residents, your bottom line is, well, your bottom line, isn't it?
IF...IF...a swap is made, and IF you have either a gain or no loss, then it's just a map change, isn't it?
I DO see the attraction of getting back twice what's paid in...that's would be a pretty sacred cow that nobody would want to slaughter, for anybody, anywhere....
