Following a public hearing with two comments, the Navasota Planning and Zoning Commission approved a specific use permit application for the development of a food truck park on Navasota’s west side. The application was submitted by Christopher Komarzec for property located at 1102 W. Washington Avenue at Second Street, the former site of Ruthie’s Barbecue. According to Development Services Director Lupe Diosdado, the specific use permit was required because a food truck park is not a use listed for the B-1 General Business District.

If you are just “tuning in,” this is the last installment of a six-part series of articles that I have written while taking on the role of a boyfriend in my marriage to my wife. Dear readers, it has been quite a journey during the past 90 days, to say the least. I have learned more than I can share here and a result, I have been more active in my relationship with my wife during this time than I have been in a very long time.

Some of Navasota’s newest residents might be surprised to learn that in the not too distant past, this quaint charming town was known to many as “Nastysota.” The scuttlebutt is that some old timers wore that tacky moniker as a badge of honor, but I can assure you that when spoken by outsiders, it was NOT used as a term of endearment. Well, no one calls it Nastysota anymore and we have retiring City Manager Brad Stafford to thank for that!

The other day I was ironing a couple of blouses, not necessarily something I do on a regular basis, but I do know what an iron is and how to use it. This brief moment of domesticity caused me to recall a remark made by late my late husband many, many years ago about me and about ironing.

Greetings all. As you all know, I wrote a farewell column some time back and now here I am again. Well, I thought somebody would pick up the baton and start writing on behalf of the veterans as I had been, but that did not happen, so here I am again. I won’t have a column every week, but I will have something as often as I can find the time to research and write.
