Description: Newspaper clippings of an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, written by Diane Wolfe.

The second clipping tells of Roger Cloud's opinions of the growing development in Haslet: "Development is creeping up on Haslet." Finally, the third clipping goes into more detail about the city's expansion and the opinions against the growth: "You really don't worry about it (growth) but you know it will change."
