Well, for one thing they are step brothers with the illustrious known crook JERRY DYER, well, they’ll be needing Par and Tetens to help get ole Jerry off something or another, he’s always in trouble, and always getting off it too.

Parnell has a new group of ass kissers and fund raisers, Cody and Shane Turner, they are having Par’s YELLOWSTONE campaign fundraiser at their rich folks Ranch.

Wonder what favors they need from Par?

Yes, the Turners have now aligned themselves with the biggest racist in the State and his racist wife with the wart on her chin. You’d think with all that plastic surgery she’dve gotten rid of that.

Guess being hooked up with people who enjoy telling us the difference between whipping and reining immigrants is fine.

Guess the Turners think no body cams is a good idea? Ask them.

This shit isn’t for the good of humanity or Waco, it’s to line the pockets of Char and Par and redo the McNamara house so Par can stop sleeping on a cot under the disco ball at the Bosqueville Community Center.

The money raised will be used to fix up Par’s delapidated house ’cause Char wants it, and to campaign for a Fix It Sheriff that they can keep inTHEIR pocket.

Parnell sells out and we know who’s buying.

Shame on you Turner brothers, but while we’re at it, would you move YOUR brother??


The Turner Brothers

Shane Turner, BA ’02, and Cody Turner, BBA ’03

When brothers Shane Turner, BA ’02, and Cody Turner, BBA ’03, bought their first downtown property in 2006, some people questioned their business acumen.

“There was a lot of skepticism from the older generations because they’ve seen attempts at revitalizing downtown fail before, but we kept doing what we thought was going to work,” Shane Turner says.

With more than 25 projects completed and at least six others—representing 100,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space—coming online in 2017, the Turners have helped transform sizeable swaths of the downtown area. Their projects include restoration of the historic Hippodrome, adaptive reuse of buildings and new construction. The brothers have added more than 400 residential units to downtown.

Few doubt the Turners’ savvy now.

Shane owns Lucra Real Estate and handles all the leasing and property management. Cody owns Kunkel Construction and handles the building and reconstruction. Condominiums, multi-family housing units, and spaces for retail, restaurants and offices are all in the Turners’ wheelhouse.

Before the revitalization wave started, the Turners were intrigued by the opportunity to obtain City of Waco Tax Increment Financing (TIF) grants available to downtown developers. TIF funds helped mitigate some of the risk. The area’s recognition as a historic district and cultural district generated additional downtown activity.

“In 2006, we had to give tenants very good deals to move in,” Shane Turner says. Today, their properties are 100 percent leased.

He says the Hippodrome has been the most complicated project, but it needed to be restored because it is symbolic of downtown’s upward trajectory.

Among other endeavors, the Turners and their partners, which include Todd Behringer, BA ’88, are working on large projects at University Parks Drive and Mary Avenue and 11th Street and Interstate 35. The former will be restaurant/retail/office space, and the latter will add two hotels and other developments.

“Downtown hasn’t ‘made it’ by any means. We’re still climbing the hill here, and we need more rooftops in downtown,” Shane says. “Housing is not as sexy as old theaters and redoing cool buildings, but it’s what we need so that the demographics can increase support for businesses like grocery stores.”
