Happy New Year and none to soon!

Well, here it is the end of another year. And what a year it's been!

We've seen the highest gas prices ever and then a drastic plunge to 2003 levels as we cut back on our wasteful use of resources.

Our Allen Eagles football team traveled to Houston December 20th and rallied past Fort Bend Hightower to capture the Texas 5A Division 1 state championship.

We've seen the economy come to a complete halt in many areas of the counrty yet here in Dallas/Ft. Worth at a recent business summit, 11 of the areas top business leaders expressed that our area is still probably the best area of the country to weather the continuing economic storm.

Our local housing industry, while not as strong as in years past, has not seen the type of freefalling property vaules as some other parts of the country. There ARE STILL Buyers and Sellers in the market.

We, as a people, elected the 1st African-American President in our history to lead this country. And a lot of people have high hopes for President-Elect Obama. His plan for a comprehensive public works agenda to help our aging infrastructure and promise of a national energy plan may be what this economy needs to restore consumer confidence and stimulate consumer spending.

We can only hope that 2009 is better than 2008.

We hope that you have a Happy and Safe New Year!
