Could Fort Worth-Made 'Miss Juneteenth' Contend for an Oscar? Variety Thinks So

Variety thinks Miss Juneteenth is an Oscar contender, and we couldn't agree more! Filmed in Fort Worth during July and August last year (it was HOT), the movie truly honors the Fort's Historically Black Communities.

Director Channing Godfrey Peoples (a Baylor University grad and former Fort resident) presents a beautiful portrait of family and love that shouldn't be missed - you can check it out on Amazon's Prime Video if you haven't seen it yet!

Did you hear that really loud noise that sounded like "YEE-HAW!" a couple of hours ago? We did too - and now we know why.

PRCA ProRodeo's Wranglerยฎ National Finals Rodeo (NFR) is moving to Arlington this December! Arlingtonโ€™s Globe Life Field will host the event, but both Fort Worth and Arlington are in on this gig.

Fort Worth will host the Wrangler NFR 2020 experience, the annual PRCA Convention, Cowboy Christmas, and several other side events.

This is a *huge* deal for North Texas and the Fort - economically and otherwise - and that they're already discussing comprehensive safety plans to keep the guests and cowboys healthy gives us the warm and fuzzies, too.

Business owners who don't follow the order or post the policy could face a fine up to $1,000, officials said.

From 1935-1940 The Home Ownersโ€™ Loan Corporation (HOLC) collected data on real estate risk levels across 239 cities and created โ€œResidential Securityโ€ maps of major American cities. These maps were how loan officers, appraisers, and real estate professionals evaluated lending risk.

TGIts Finally FALL! Good Morning Steer friends, Question: Do any of you compost currently? If so would you share pics and pointers inside, after this long draught & my refusal to waist water for grass to look at, I am preliminary planning a new back yard that I will share details once I am committed fully. Also I see FW has a compost program, but it seems to be different than those I've seen in other cities. So in FW, you get a starter kit and you have to drop it off and it goes to a large commercial mulch yard. BUT, we don't get back the good dirt? I find this rather odd, I have seen places where you get what you give, so 10 5 gallon buckets and I have seen every variation of this ratio. SO my big question is are we doing this work, making landfills less toxic and the city is selling our labor to commercial landscape suppliers or what? I agree its better than nothing, but if that is the case, I don't see participation in the pilot program being very high! Nevertheless, I have youtubed to death plus my own knowledge from growing up in Arkansas with a garden, what are my creative intelligent cowtown colleagues doing here? Pics? http://fortworthtexas.gov/solidwaste/compost/
That was some tough competition last night, but I couldn't be prouder of our M&Ms (i.e. team representing SteerFW) at the 2019 Oktoberfest YP Olympics!
For those interested in dense non-multi-family housing options to follow up with our developers policy and pints event last week, check out how effecnictly a 16 foot lot can be utilized and still include parking. We can do the same thing here. I believe young people would go for something like this in an urban, dense setting. This is innovation at work, against the social norms, but providing options. Yes, Toronto has many size and other requirements for houses in neighborhoods just like here. https://youtu.be/PfqXqJxwFfI The conversation continues :) Chris Powers
I am delighted I made it to Policy & Pints this week. Chris presented us with insightful information on the struggles of developing urban villages aka : live, eat, sip, exercise, work, & love life areas in FW. Who knew that creating density in a large city is a problem? When most cities on the population list in front of us don't have a choice. While we take our open land for granite here for now, it will not always be this way & what we do now in shaping our city can have postive or negative outcomes for the next 30-50 years and beyond. We must do our part in educating others on considering what 2 million people in the next decade and 5 million in the next 25 years will look like. Until next time. Oh & I'm joining in on the Octoberfest games on Team SFW, who's got next ? -David
