    I was listening to a radio show today related to SL. It
    sounded like a great place, and I wanted to ask any
    resident about their experience(s).

    Well, the radio show in which I was listening, featured
    the Mayor of SL. Apparently, SL has been voted by
    some magazine as the third best city of Texas/US, in
    which to live.

    Wait a minute.... let me see if I can firm up that claim a

    I'm back.... It was Money magazine, and here's a link:

    Along with a couple of others - caveat emptor...."++"best+city"&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=2

    Anyway, I've been looking for a more retirement friendly
    area, and the verbal picture painted of SL seemed as it
    might be attractive.

    It seems like there was a member of this group some time
    ago that lived in SL. As I recall, he had just purchased a
    crated 2003 Honda Valkyrie. Soon thereafter, he suffer-
    ed some financial difficult(y)(ies) and had to sell the bike.

    Using Google to search, I see that the name for
    which I was referring is Lynn McGuire. Apparently, he's
    had no usenet postings since 4/2005.

    Anyone else have any pro/con details on SL?

    Thanks for the reply. I recall the '03 Valk buy/sale.

    I just wanted to ask a few questions about life in SL.

    Nothing too complicated, just cost of living stuff, and
    quality of life/retirement issues.

    Since your reply is masked, maybe you could reply
    to me. Or, I guess we can use the NG.

    Thanks Lynn. I did review the taxes on one of the prop-
    erties in your FBCAD. The guy on the radio led the aud-
    ience to believe SL had low tax rates, but that's just not
    so. They might be favorable when compared to some
    place like NYC, east/west coast, but not Texas.

    I did see the M.U.D. references in the datasheet. I don't
    know what that means, but there are many of these class-
    ifications. Because of all the taxing entities(the subject
    property had 7), and the various rates, the eventual taxes
    are even higher than in Dallas.

    I need to look further out in the country.

    Thanks again for your help, and I'm glad to hear that your
    wife has successfully recovered from cancer.

  10. I just got back. That's where my wife's horse lives and when she works I
    get to work him and feed him.

  11. Did you take the limo service?
    George Pollard, May 14, 2012
  12. No, didn't fly in either. But I do enjoy seeing the big screen at the
    'Skeeters ballpark when they are there playing. They are right across SH 6
    from the airport. Some day I will actually pony up a buck or two and take in
    a game.
