BUC-EE’S: THE MAGICAL LOCAL MARKET MAKER We knew Buc-ee’s would make a big impact on the I-45 11- acre tract of land. We just didn’t realize how big it would be. A recent third-party study revealed that Bucee’s construction has spurred significant real estate activity around our property and created equity for our members not expected. Ennis mayor Angie Juenemann is excited about what Buc-ee’s development has already brought to the city. The $30-plus million travel center under construction will be 52,000 square feet and located on an 80-acre tract of land at the southeast corner of Interstate Highway 45 and Creechville Road. How does this impact our new Luxury RV Resort & Storage? Roughly, half of the 55,000-60,000 cars per week will be driving directly past our property going to Dallas. Plus, we have to extend the city street, Sonoma Trail, behind our property that will provide southbound traffic circulation to Buc-ee’s. Regardless of the actual percentage of tenants traffic driven by “Drive By Traffic,” we believe being 1,250 feet north of the new Buc-ee’s on I-45 just 30 minutes south of Dallas a is dynamite location. We look forward to starting construction later this year.

Some answers, like “I want to lose weight” or “I want to build muscle,” are obvious, but there’s another contender that might rise to the top: “I want to clear my head.” Anecdotally, most of us know that a hard run or a challenging weightlifting session can help declutter our minds and push petty worries and stressors away. But according to one study, it’s possible that exercise can literally clear up messy nerve cells to restore and improve our memories. For the more than 50 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, this simple treatment could prove revolutionary. In a 2018 article, Scientific American describes the brains of people with Alzheimer’s as “harsh place[s] filled with buildups of harmful nerve cell junk,” including amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. This complex neural web makes the disease difficult to treat, but an experiment conducted by scientists from Harvard Medical School, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and other notable institutions found that exercise helps clear up the tangles and improve learning and memory in mice with Alzheimer’s. The scientists even went a step further, identifying a particularly
