Revisions to the city's zoning ordinance were approved on second reading last night at the regular meeting of the Terrell city council. The changes affect the location of liquor package stores, changes in regulations on hotels, motels and downtown hotel and motel/lodges, but excluded the provisions in the ordinance which were in the ordinance at the last council meeting concerning the requirement of two-car garages and carports, which was excluded to allow for further study and discussion by the council in the future on that requirement. The council also approved a resolution starting the process of the development of a new downtown plan, a thoroughfare plan, and a comprehensive plan for the city. this process will start with a contract between the city and KSA Engineers, Inc., for planning services.

Kuba Kawnik, with his penchant for esoteric instruments and classically trained jazz background, would seem worlds away from Rebecca Lowe’s love of Broadway shows combined with her fondness for pop and country music. Common thought would not give great odds that two such different talents could collide and ever be united into a cohesive whole. And yet, this couple has accomplished just that!! These two wonderful performers – an acclaimed Broadway musical vocalist and a spectacular Vibraphone virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist – now married, are enjoying great success as they team up together onstage in venues ranging from performing arts theaters in the United States to jazz clubs in Poland to the world’s top cruise lines.
