In League City, there’s never a dull moment.

In September, crews demolished a Mattress Firm, signaling a major advancement of a long-awaited project meant to ease traffic at the intersection known as Five Corners.

The project is meant to reduce some of the traffic congestion motorists experience at the three lighted intersections at the site — FM 518, FM 2094 and FM 270.

“The demolition of Mattress Firm is our first major step in bringing the Five Corners project to fruition,” City Manager Mark Rohr said.

Still, motorists likely will have to endure some inconveniences as crews work on improvements, but at least they’ll know relief is on the way.

Meanwhile, politics continues to be heated as Rohr and Mayor Pat Hallisey trade accusations in emails. You’ll read about that conflict in this issue and down the line.

But you’ll also find inspiring stories about how some League City residents stepped up to establish a water well in Campo El Cayo, a remote Honduran village of about 300 people.

Until the well was drilled, some young children in the village had never tasted clean water.

And you’ll also read about how Clear Creek Independent School District was among those earning top honors for scholastic and fiscal performance from the recently created Texas Smart Schools organization, which is something to celebrate.
