Monday afternoon house fire under investigation

March 29, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

House fire: A firefighter sprays down hot spots in the smoldering remains of a house fire Monday afternoon.

Charred walls, burned baseball cards and the brick façade is all that’s left of a vacant house destroyed by a fire Monday afternoon.

Firefighters from the Benbrook Fire Department arrived on the scene to find flames shooting out of the back of the house.

“A lot of the contents of the floor was burning from the floor all the way up,” Benbrook Fire Chief Tommy Davis said. “How it started, that’s all under investigation.”

George and Mary Ward who live behind the property along Linkmeadow Drive, near the border of Parker and Tarrant counties, called 9-1-1 after hearing popping on the site.

Waste Transfer Station hearing set for Wednesday

March 5, 2010 by Randy Keck

The first phase of a contested case hearing regarding Republic Waste's proposed waste transfer station in east Parker County will be held Wednesday, March 10 at 10 a.m. in the Aledo Community Center.

Republic Waste applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for a permit to build the Waste Transfer Station on Nu Energy Drive between Bankhead Hwy. and I-20 in 2008. The TCEQ ruled that Republic has met all technical requirements to be issued a preliminary permit.

Because of the proposed facility's proximity to Aledo High School and athletic complex, as well as proximity to other educational outlets, residents and public officials have protested the location of the facility. Parker County Judge Mark Riley, the Aledo Independent School District and the City of Aledo have all fought the application, so far to no avail.

The Wednesday hearing is the next step in the process for those who oppose the waste transfer station.
