In this week’s Terri Tells You we start out with some exciting news for folks who live on or near South University and the Loop. Construction broke ground this week and a new Wendy’s is being built inside the Target parking lot. We can expect this to be completed in the next three to four months.
Also this week, Bolton Oil has decided to sell their business to Take Five. Owner Charles Bolton says they weren’t up for sale but Take Five made them an offer a few months ago. And now Bolton says was the right time. They’ve sold six oil change locations but the property and stations are still under Bolton’s management. The company Take Five hired all the current employees and the name will be changing within the next 90 days.
Former Mayor ‘Tom Martin’ is being honored next week. The city will rename the Lubbock Youth Sports Complex at F-M 1585 and Milwaukee “The Thomas A. Martin Sports Complex.” Martin served the city for 28 years, first as a Lubbock Police officer then moving to other Texas cities and serving there. Ultimately ‘Martin’ returned to the Hub City and served as the Mayor for two terms. Martin passed away in April of 2018.
