I, like LaredoTejas, found it interesting how the mayor's face lit up when he utters the word 'money' during a recent KGNS interview. Money makes the world go 'round, but for him, the mere mention of the word sets off a reaction in his brain, causing him to salivate, among other things.
Anyway, the KGNS story centered around a bus terminal that's being planned for the area near Bridge 2. At least one person is concerned that the project will greatly affect the adjoining neighborhood, El Azteca. The barrio could be cut off even further from the business district if the terminal is built. That could very well be true. But my concern is that this terminal is going to be El Portal II. If I'm right, then the property that's currently unleased near Bridge 1 will be even more insignificant.
Now add to that the traffic nightmare that's going to be created for people accessing Matamoros. Oh, it's going to be a beauty.
