Here's the Flower Mound Scoop for Monday 11/29/22

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Always kick start your day in a good way! 

---Patricia Feager

 

Monday morning, November 29th in Flower Mound has a bit of a chill in the air at 42 degrees; however, it shall remain sunny reaching 74 degrees by noon.

Boo Hoo! Little Flower Mound Rebels Pee Wee football team was banned from the league for being “Too Good!” The seven 7-8 year old Team Rebels Navy was crying and wanted to know, ‘why, what did we do?’ Coach Ragan told them ‘you didn’t do anything.’ He acknowledged ‘it wasn’t fair and it hurts, but we have to just keep going.’ The sad news came by the “Keller Youth Football Association football team, giving the reason that “They are too good.” Here's the link to read more.

 

Everyone in Flower Mound agrees that what the Keller Youth Football Association decided is insane! When it comes to kids and Football, we all agree with Tom Brady: "Football is unconditional love" and may I add, we love our Flower Mound kids!

 

Donations are still needed for Carter Blood drive, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, St. Jude’s Hospital for Children, Wounded Warriors, and the Salvation Army.

 

Cyber Monday is going wild with discounts today. Will shelves be empty? Only business owners know.

 

When it comes to landfills, they get filled up rapidly during the holiday season. Please remember to recycle!

 

Christmas Lights are beginning to go up all around the town. Be safe when climbing ladders and wear proper footwear when working around the house.

 

Drivers beware! For the next six months, expect delays as construction on the medians along FM 1171/Cross Timbers, between Long Prairie Road and Garden Ridge Boulevard will be updating the landscaping medians by adding native plant materials, trees, mulch and rock to eliminate grass. The project is being funded by a grant received through the efforts by Keep Flower Mound Beautiful received from Governor Abbott’s Community Achievement Awards program.

 

The Town of Flower Mound approved a new subdivion at Spinks and FM 2499 in South Flower Mound. Toll Brothers will begin their new construction site.

 

Whatever you do today, be happy. As adults, be the best you can to keep all kids in a good frame of mind and set good examples, take the high road, schmucks are everywhere - Be better! ---Patricia Feager

I will try to be better at everything I do.  I sure hope I do not get banned.  😉  We do live in a strange time.  Hope you are doing well and thank you for today's scoop!

Hello Patricia - I don't often think of football-related stories but there are definitely lessons learned from the world of sports. 

 

Recently there was a story about a football team in Riverside California.  Each member of the team is hearing-impaired and the story spoke of their success as they achieved an unbeaten season playing against teams who could hear.  They and their coaches communicated through sign language.   

 

Although they eventually lost in a state championship in their division on Friday, they have an admirable story.  Often what goes on behind the headlines tells a story. 

 

I apologize for the long comment.

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty and Michael Jacobs - I just added the link to the Team's story in Flower Mound, just in case you want to read more. Raymond, I agree, we are living in strange times and parents, coaches, and all of us need to know how to help the children in our communities survive these exisiting challenges. 

Michael, thanks for sharing a positive football story coming out of Riverside, CA. Learning to adapt when there are challenges is very healthy and admirable! Let the children learn and be good role models!!! I love that you shared this story!

Thank you!!!

Nina Hollander, Broker - I hope I get lucky today on Cyber Monday. My printer keeps crunching up all my computer papers and won't print correctly. I have been trying since yesterday. If I can't get the problem resolved, I'm going to have to buy a new printer and hopefully can find my receipts for ink cartridges I have in stock for my home office supplies. 

Make it a great Monday. You got a great deal in savings!!! Congratulations!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... my printer has not functioned well since October. Ordered a new one in October and won't be delivered till December 9th!

Nina Hollander, Broker - I got lucky this morning. There is a new store in Flower Mound that fixes Mac and iPhones. I stopped in to ask if they also provided IT support for printers too and explained my problem. I had my printer with me and he checked it out and discovered what the problem was and got it fixed without charge. Turns out we both believe in good Karma and I didn' thave to buy a new printer after all!

That is terribly sad about the football team.  My boys always were on amazing teams that won and they were never given the boot because "they were too good".  Great info as always and I hope that you have a blessed Monday!

Norma J. Elkins - It is new to me too! It's a sick reversal in everything we've been taught. Being good is now bad? Sad days prevail. I hope you have a blessed day too!

Good morning Patricia,

Loved your kick start Monday.  I had not heard the story of the hearing impaired football team in Riverside that Michael Jacobs cited in his comment.  I don't read the news, or listen to them other than the Reuters feed which does not put their own agenda spin...Crazy story about "too good!".  Happy Monday to you...We started the day at 48, and will have a high of 68.  And a beach walk is planned today.  A

Some news is good to hear.  And quite often it's true too.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I'm a believer in good news and selective about what I watch and listen to. This article is from our local news for residents only  mostly about our local schools and the children and their accomplishments. What I wrote really did happen. Like you, it was a pleasure to hear what's going on in Riverside.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP I do not understand what happened to the Pee Wee football team ... it seems they were kicked off because they could not win a game? 

I'm off to a great start on this blessed and beautiful 72 degree Monday, 11-29-2021.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - I never heard of a Team being booted off because the Team was too good either. It's absurd! As children, they need others to aspire to and competency skills without cheating should be emulated and applauded. To my knowledge, nothing like that happened for Flower Mound kid before. Keller is in a different school district and county, which kids typically compete against. It makes no sense.

Patricia the "Your To Good, So You Cannot Play" is the wrong message to instill in kids.  I like "If You Want To Win Work To Improve" better.  We are going in the wrong direction when we teach kids to just be mediocre in stead of excelling and being the best they can be.

George Souto - Very bizarre status quo to follow, don't you think? I agree with you whole heartedly. They are our children, our next generation. It's a very bad message to send to these kids who did nothing wrong and exhibited good sportsmanship.

Wow, that is crazy that they got banned for being too good.  Perhaps it would have been better to just move them up a division?

Wow, a bunch of interesting stuff going on in your area! I like that you do a Monday "scoop" about Flower Mound. Great idea.

As for the pee-wee team, at first I was like, WHAT? Instead of showing the other teams how to play better, they kicked off the team that kept winning? Ridiculous! But then I read the rebuttal from the league and it sounds like the team in question didn't follow the rules about how to select players. If that's the case, then the coach or whoever hand picked the players was at fault and should have known better. There's always two sides to every story but sometimes it's hard to know who is right. Although that brings back the thought that there are really three sides to every story. Their story, our story, and the real truth. So confusing.

Enjoy your day!

Brian England - there's always more than one right answer. What's most important to me are the kids involved who are learning, not just about how to play football, but about the game of life and who the players are, and just how important it is to follow the rules, provided the rules are right in the first place. It will be interesting to observe how this youngest generation, ages ten and under, will develop and grow into adults.

Kat Palmiotti - Thanks for the input! I'll make it a practice to do that every Monday. 

I love how you analyze situations! This would make a great case study to gain insights for school education, don't you think? The message is important and for people to understand all sides of a situation before they begin to CHARGE and get everyone riled up and upset. Children's eyes are on everyone!!!
