The Carter Avenue Rescue Operation will be holding a rally on the Courthouse steps Thursday, March 4th at 7:30 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend.

This rally will be held prior to Steve Doeung's court appearance in his battle with Chesapeake Energy. Steve Doeung is attempting to stop Chesapeake Energy from using eminent domain to take his home in order to put a pipeline beneath the homes along Carter Avenue in Fort Worth.

Steve Doeung does not have legal counsel. He is a Lone Ranger battling Chesapeake Energy. The last time Steve Doeung was in court he was virtually alone against Chesapeake Energy.

This time we do not want Steve Doeung to be alone. We want Steve to feel the support of his fellow Texans, with a solid, loud expression of the American Spirit.

The Court hearing begins at 8:30. Please come witness this historic moment in Fort Worth and Texas and show your support for Steve Doeung and the residents of Carter Avenue.

All North Texans should be concerned with the process and outcome of this hearing. A recent Fort Worth Business Press article named Tarrant County, the eminent domain capital of Texas, which by default likely makes Tarrant County the eminent domain capital of America.

YOUR neighborhood could be next.

Speakers at the event include:

Louis McBee - Vietnam Veteran, Business Owner, Community Leader, Former Mayoral Candidate and Treasurer of NCTCA

Glen Bucy - Afghanistan Veteran, Former City Council Candidate, and Local Community Activist

Billy Mitchell - Rancher, Eminent domain abuse victim, Community Activist

And special guest - DISH, TX Mayor, Calvin Tillman - Mayor Tillman has been leading the way with his determination and resolve to ensure the safety of resident's rights concerning gas drilling, not only in DISH, but the entire state of Texas. He was recently invited to speak to citizens in New York about their concerns with gas drilling issues.

CARTER AVENUE RESCUE OPERATION begins at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 100 W. Weatherford in Fort Worth. That is the Old Historic Courthouse at the north end of downtown, across the street from Heritage Park. Just follow the signs, downtown, to Sundance Square, where you will find plenty of parking lots.

Refreshments will be provided. Please plan on attending and bring your family and friends!

FYI. There are CARO supporters who are not North Texans. Some are from West Texas. You might want to change out your logo for the latest, more inclusive, version.

We're taking our kids to the rally b/c they can be a few minutes late but will learn so much from being there for 30 minutes. Are there going to be bikers there?

THank you Mr. Durango, I shall use the more inclusive logo immediately

Dear Anon,
I'm sensing that you're possibly afraid of bikers. I'm thinking that you have no need to worry. My friends that own motorbikes are teachers, lawyers, principals, psychologists and belong to a local group that loves to ride and defend the freedoms of Americans...

This is sooooo great. I wish it were not so stinking early and I didn't live so stinkin far!!! :( Is he still not being represented by anyone? Is this one of those things where you can have someone appointed for you? Or is that only criminal things? Hahaha.

I can't believe Tarrant Co was named the eminent domain capital of the World. Kidding. We could be China. That's REAL eminent domain. Either way, it makes sense.

Will you be doing any speaking? What about Dango? Maybe the paper/news will pick up on this? Has anyone contacted them?

Cheap Tricks and Costly Truths said...

I only wished Steve was a criminal, then all his legal representation issues would be solved!!!

Doesn't that REEK to holy heaven? Eminent Domain capital.

Ha ha speak? Uh, have you heard my atrocious accent?

Durango said...

That's Ridiglius. You don't have an accent and you've got a very nice voice.

Jovan Gonzales said...

Yeah. I don't like T-Co being the eminent domain capital. It's too close (but thankfully so far away!) for comfort.

Yes, you speak! Dear, you're from Texas, don't you know that NO ONE can have an "atrocious" accent. I'll just ask Dango, see what he says. I happen to love hick accents. Mine is pretty thick, too, from living in East Texas all my life. HAHA.
