Regarding the article on the “Star’s” front page 2/27: Ms. Morales described Town Square as …”It is our heart and soul…” I’m a native Sugar Land resident. I was born in the Eldridge Hospital, at Wood and Lakeview Streets, 61 years ago, grew up and still live in Sugar Land.
The City of Sugar Land has developed the city beautifully, but I remember (just to name a few) Western Auto, Sugar Land Drug Store, Sugar Land State Bank, Dairy Queen, Sugar Land Telephone Company and Palms Theatre.
My dad worked for the Imperial Sugar Company and my mother was a Sugar Land school teacher and librarian. I’m not stuck in the past, but I have so many good memories and the present Town Square will NEVER be the “heart and soul” of Sugar Land as far as I’m concerned. It doesn’t have the “heart and soul” history.
