Received an email from Mr. Carl Crum about a PBS TV show about to start filming (or whatever they call it now) a television series featuring stories from within designated square miles in various Texas cities. The image you see on the right shows Midland's square mile.
From Mr. Crum:
We are not looking for tourist's perspective of this square mile, but rather a first person perspective of what it is like to live in this community on a day-to-day basis.The five themes we will be filming in this square mile are:
Community - What role does community play in this square mile. How do residents interact and socialize? Is community involvement centered at the school, the barber shop, the cafe or the home?
Family - What is the role of family in this square mile? What is it like to live, grow up or raise a family in this square mile?
Work - How do people earn a living in this square mile?
Food - How is food a part of the culture in this square mile?
Future - What is the future of this square mile?
We are looking for the obvious and the obscure. Anyone within the community can make a suggestion on the OSMTX website at:
OK, no fair answering every question with "Walmart."
